he Senate took a recess until 3 o'clock. On reassembling a joint resolution was adopted fixing the hour of five for adjournment, at which hour the Senate adjourned sine die. House of Representatives.--House met at 9 o'clock. Mr. Chilton, of Ala., from the Committee on Commissary and Quartermaster's Department, reported bank the bill to grant commutation for quarters to the Superintendent of the Army intelligence Office, with an amendment of the Senate.

lf-loading artillery that will fire a hundred times a minute, titles that are a sure shot at a thousand yards, and pistols, with a dozen barrels, that will shoot as far as rifle, almost invented. Cannon balls that will pierce any thickness of iron, and iron plating that will resist successfully any cannon ball, are plenty as blackberries. But the greatest of our inventions is the iron ram, the pets of the nation, one of which, barring unfortunate accidents, would suffice to butt down to Davy Jones's locker the whole of the Yankee navy. Barring accidents, wouldn't the Manassas, or the Merrimac, the Louisiana, the Mississippi, or the Arrases, have done all this?

Young Hatcher escaped unhurt, except the effect of the race. The prisoners escaped. One of them, Rorer, is said to have received a severe wound from his friends in the bushes. The county is t
