WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.
Mr. Brodhead, from the
Committee on Claims, submitted a re
port directing that all private claims
in which adverae reporta were made or
oidered during last session, which we
pending at ita close, aud which claims
are founded upon any law of Congress
or regulation of the Executive Depart
menli, or contracts, express or implied,
with the Government, and which clai
mants choose to prosecute before the
Court of claims, be referred to said
Court- . .
The report, on motion, was adopted.
Ou motion of Mt. Casa, ths protest
of members of the Illinois Legislature
against Mr. Turnbull ' election to. the
senate was reletied to the- "Committee
on the Judiciary.
Mr. Turnbull presented evldanoe
shoving that he ceased to be a Jude
and was succeeded by another two years
before his election to the Senate.
This was referred to the same Com
mittee. House. The balloting for Speaker

Mr. Smith, of Alabama, said the re
sult of tbe vote just auuuuced is a pret
ty fair indicatiou that no result will
be reached to-day, and wishing to pro
mote by degrees the business of the
House, he proposed ihe election of the
two most important committees of tbe
House, viz: Committee of Ways aud
Mears and the Comitlee oc Foreign Aff
airs. He proposed that the Northern
party should, nominate four; members
of each committee, the Administration
pariy'lhree, and the. corporal's guar!
the South, sssisted by members from
the north, two, These committees
should aelect their Chairman by a ma
jonty vote, snd the two chairmen , pre
tide over the ordinary buisuess of . the
House, alternately, un(l a Speaker
elected. He proposed oue hour to be
devoted to the introduction of bills,
be re!e:red to apropriate coinn.it eea,
bd seleuud lieioafter. . The members
could be shown iu by the Chulruian
the Committee on Watt and Means;
then proceed to the election of Clerk,
Pcslinuslers, Sergan-at Anna, Doorkeep
er, and Uot, though not least', Chaplain,
through whose prayers, perhaps, some
oil may be -.brow n upon the trouble wa
ters. This was no time for commotion
and retununoiiou, we waul harmouy
and concession. .
Setcral gentlemen objected to that
plan, the law of 1769 being in the way,
prescribing that $pi)ir anJ CUrk
shall first be elected and members sworn
in by the Speaker before proceeding
ajy other buisuess.
Mr Smith . remarked, that, unless
some such plan was adopted, '.he public
bu siiess ould sutler. .
