bill introduced by Mr Denton for the armed occupa

ordered to a third reading. It has subsequently pas
sed the Senate, 25 to 18, and gone before the House.
Wo cannot give the details of tho bill, not having n
copy on hand ; but its leading feature is to make a
grant of land to actual settlers, put anna in their
hands and allow them to defend themselves from the
cncrachnicnts of the savages. This course has been
recommended by Gen. Taylor, tho present military
commander in Florida, as the most feasible and eco
nomical modo of bringing tho Indians of that territo
ry under subjection. L
Tho bill to provide for tho more -'cTVectual

and for tho punishment of public defaulters, was next
taken up. The first question was on Mr ltivcs' sub

Tho course taken by the committee who came
the other day frnm Washington to investigate tho
Swartwout defalcation, occasions much conver
sation. Notwithstanding they sit with closed
doors, f.tcts have traspired in relation to their
proceedings which aro commented on with the
strongest expressions of reprobation and con
tempt. It is generally understood that one of tho first
stops taken by the committee was to refiino tho
proposition of tho minority, that the proceedings
should he open and public. A course of proce
dure carried on under the public eyo, subject to
daily observation and criticism, would not have
accorded with their purpose. Tho Holy Inquisi
tion afforded them a belter pattern its proceed
ing were .secret and tho committee according
ly sit with cloed doors.

been held to make their answers in tbo nrcsenr.e !,!
