Georgia Legislature. Milledgeville, March 15. --Mr. West introduced resolutions in the Senate yesterday declaring that the power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus was expressly granted to Congress, which, in case of invasion, was the sole judge to determine whether the public service requires it; declaring that parties guilty of the crimes stated in the act are not entitled to the sympathy of the Legislature, and expressing confidence in the President and Congress. The Judiciary Committee recommended the passage of the resolutions Mr. Keenan spoke last night, and Lucius J. C. Lamar is to speak to night, and A. H. Stephens on Wednesday night. Both houses have agreed to adjourn on Saturday next.
