The Legislature.

Both branches of the General Assembly yesterday adopted a resolution extending the present session until Monday next, the 20th instant. This step was rendered imperative because of the pendency of several important measures — the Tarbill, the Salt question, and others — which have not yet, at this late hour of the session, been finally acted upon; and unless members apply them. Gives more Gilligently to the dispatch of public business, we fear the time allowed by the extension will prove too short for the accomplishment of the within objects of their coming together.

The election of Superintendent of the Penitentiary, to supply the vacancy occasioned by the death of Col. Chas. Blue, resulted in the election of Mr. Colin Bass, of Roanoke.
