Anderson, of Botetourt, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported a bill to constitute a corps to more effectually collect the arms belonging to the State and Confederate States, not in active service, which was read a first time. Mr. Woodhouse offered a resolution that a select committee be appointed to devise "some mode to prevent the escape of slaves to the enemy by boats left by their owners carelessly in the river," which was adopted. The order of the day, which was the consideration of the "Bill to organize the State troops and volunteers of Virginia," was then taken up. The various amendments proposed by the majority of the Committee on Military Affairs were reported by the chairman and adopted by the House, with the view of perfecting the bill presented by a majority of the Committee. Mr Tomlin made some amendments to the substitute offered by him. Without taking action upon the bill or substitute, the House, at a quarter past 3 o'clock, adjourned.

How much better to supply the old buckets with the missing staves? Their hoops are tried and reliable, and the new buckets may prove leaky and defective. The Senate's bill is evidently expensive, and cannot lead to the same prompt and effective results that will be attained by that of Col. Tomlin.
