Conventions of their respective States. On motion, the documents were laid on the table and ordered to be printed. State Defence.--Mr. Smith, of Kanawha, called up the bill appropriating one million of dollars for the defence of the State, which had been returned from the Senate with amendments to which the House had agreed. The pending question was a proviso offered by Mr. Smith that $50,000 of the amount to be expended in fortifications, &c., should be devoted to building an arsenal for arms in the Kanawha Valley, or some locality adjacent. Messrs. Smith, Boreman, Edgixoton, Haymond, Yerby, and Cowan, spoke in favor of the proviso, and Messrs. Bisbie, Crump, Gibson, Chapman, Anderson, and Jones of Gloucester, in opposition thereto. The previous question being demanded, the ayes and noes were called, and resulted in the adoption of the proviso by a vote of 64 ayes to 47 noes. Pending a motion to take up bills on their second reading, The House adjourned.

It appears to have been situated near Tyana, (now Danam,) but a few days' march from the gates of Cilicia, as the avenues to that country were called.-- Cyrus, the younger, advanced by this route

It appears to have been situated near Tyana, (now Danam,) but a few days' march from the gates of Cilicia, as the avenues to that country were called.-- Cyrus, the younger, advanced by this route when he invaded Mesopotamia, as we learn from Xenophon. It seems, however, to have been little travelled by merchants, except such as were bound to Tarsus. Those who designed to go farther, turned off at Holma, a place situated on the borders of the Pareoratic Phrygia, and followed a route somewhat deflected to the North, traversing Lycaonia and Cappadocia, and crossing the Euphrates near Samosata. What Herodotus tells us of the Scythians, he probably heard in Albia or Cyzicus. Of course nobody imagines that he ever visited in person tho
