Mr. HALF, gave notire of his intention to introduce
a resolution relating to the President'?
opening a correspondence wiih the French government,
requesting the liberation of A ltd el K-ider.
A resolution was agreed to, providing for tht
appointment of chaplains in both branches, to officiate
alternately in each.
The* following bills, &.C., Here introduced,
read twice, and referred:
By Mr. Under wo -r,a resolution relating to th#
public lands; by Mr. W truer., a lull allowing the
States to cede lands lying therein to actual set
tiers; also, a bill relating to land in Wisconsin; by

# for till same.
nr.( cption or kossctu.
The Senate took up the special order; being
Mr. Sewsno's resolution, that Congress will extend
a cordial greeting to kti**ii<li.
Mr. SHIELDS then introduced a resolution appointing
a Committee of three to receive Kossuth
and introduce Inni to the Senate.
Mr. SHIKLIH said, that if thin resolution was
now to be considered, he should move to amend
it by proposing the reaoiution introduced and
withdrawn by the Senator from Mississippi
(Mr. Fpora,)laat week. Thishedid, and
On motion of Mr. Sswaso, the resolution and
amendment wer. ?i V'on 'lie table and oidered to
be piiuted.
Mr. SHIELDS said lhat Kossuth was already
the t ues.t ofthe nation, and that it was due to lum
that some course of this kind should tie pursued.
If he was to be received at a:l, tl should be
done with proper couriesy. He rcp'ied to the
Senator front Kentucky,/Mr. Ukioswoon's,) nbjections
to receiving him, and believed that no
State would be more ready than that Senator's to
do Kossuth honor, lie was emphatically the
great man of the day', lb whom was tin ability to
array and concentrate all the moral force of the
day in which wf live, throughout ihe civili7ed
world, against the despotism of the old world
The world is now looking to the action of this
Senate, this Congress, on tins matter He (Mr.
8.) trusted that a committee would be appointed
to take Koaauth by the hand and introduce him
here. It was an act of courtesy due both to the
man and the country whence he comes?Hungary,
a land which defended the great principles of
Christianity, years before we became a nat on. If
some action such as he (Mr. S.) proposed was
not taken by the Senile, it would go forth to the
world, that after inviting him here, we had refused
to receive him. He hoped this resolution
would be acted upon at this time. ,
Mr UNDERWOOD wished to reply to any
personal application of the Srnatbr's remarks,
which might have been intended for himself. No
one would receive Mr Kossutii with more heartfelt
congratulation thun himself, but in the remarks
which lie made when this subject came up las!
week, he wished to be understood as making a
distinction between our duty as men and as legislators.
He did not believe this subjer had any

assailed him, whether uiey were located North'or
South of Mason and Dixon's line. What they
had said had been of no effect to injure his standing
either as a patriot Or a gentleman. He did noi
say this in any spirit of exultation, but it was
sustained by the facts- Good men must by this
time have discovered that the wicked men of the
lund were his enemies. Knowing as he did that
what lie might say here would be distorted
and misrepresented in the most bold and
unblushing manner by persons controlling a
portion of the American press, he had taken
the trouble to draw up in-writing what lie now had
to say; if, therefore, lie was reported falsely, the
report would be to blame, and not his remarks.
(Mr. F. here proceeded to read.) He would noi
have believed that these rcso.utions would have
been disapproved here as tliey have been. The
President of the Unil-d States hud twice repeated
their substance, and what was right for him to ih

more than a single instance. Sectional jealousies
have not been so far assuaged as all patriots mus
desire. Movements equally deplorable, too, liavt
been made in the South, the tendency of whirl
was to establish relations of permanent hostility
between the North and iSuuili. He (Mr. F.i
