Compliment to an Actress.

--Mrs. General Lander (Miss Davenport) was highly complimented on Friday, in the House of Representatives, for, while every other private bill was "blocked" by the "objection" of five Representatives, no obstacle was placed in the way of the passage of a bill providing for the payment of a very just claim for the expenses of her deceased husband while making one of his wagon-road explorations for Government in the far Western wilderness. Mrs. Lander is now performing at one of the New York theatres.
