aus to the War Department west of the Mississippi river.--Considered and passed. Mr. Miles also reported back a bill to repeal the act to authorize the raising of bands of partisan rangers. The bill proposes to abolish partisan ranger corps, and leaves it discretionary with the Secretary of War or the Commanding General of a Department to assign them to such military organization as the interests of the service may require. After some amendments and considerable discussion, the bill was passed. Mr. Hartridge, of Ga., from the committee of conference on the bill to regulate impressments, made a report recommending that the House agree with the Senate in its amendments, and the report was concurred in. Mr. Villere, of La., from the Military Committee, reported a bill, which was passed, for the organization of a corps of scouts and signal guards in the Valley of the Mississippi. After the passage of a number of other bills of minor importance, the House adjourned.
