The Fight in the Senate Resumed - Farley Deinauda Action on the Chi nese Trestle*—The True Inward ness ot the Majority’* Refusal to Go Into Executive Neslon- Re ceipts of Six Per Cents.—Virginia’s Discriminating Tax on Outside manufactures. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Washington, May 2 — The Yice Presi dent laid before the Senate the unfinished business, being the resolution for the elec tion of officers of the Senate. Mr. Farley called attention to the large number of nominations which were await ing action by the Senate, and moved to go Into executive session. The people of his State, of ail parties, were appealing to thP Senate to consider the important matters in which they were directly interested. Petitions were daily coming from the public press of California asking for con sideration of the Chinese treaty. In one of thosa papers he had observed that he had been charged with retarding the consideration of the Chinese treaty. The record of tbe Senate contradicted that statement. For many weeks the Democratic Senators had invited the Republicans to go Into executive session. Eight hundred or one thousand Chinamen were arriving semi-monthly at San Francis co. A ship full of Chinamen, and with small-pox on board, was to-day lying at quarantine In the harbor at San Francisco, and the people of California were protesting against this neglect on the part, of the Sen ate, for which neglect the Republican party was responsible. Mr. Dawes said that he w T as as anxious to go Into executive session as any man could be, but the Hicord for the past two months would disclose the fact that the Senator (Mr. Farley) and those who acted with him had been solely responsible for any delay in going into executive session. Mr. Farley replied that the Republican party could not escape responsibility for the evils which had befallen the people of the Pacific coast. Mr. Dawes rejoined that the Senator stood here and told the people of California that rather than that the Democratic Secretary of the Senate be displaced, he would let the CuiDese come and bring all the evils that they might. The Senator ana his party had been iu a majority in the Senate and no one had touched his harp or piped hi3 lute in favor of considering the Chinese trea’ies, but now the Seuator came in at this dying hour as his last chance and uttered male dictions upon the Senate itself. Mr. Farley repeated his statement, that the people of California were protesting against the non-action of the Senate, and declared that the Republican party of that State were protesting against the election of Gorham as Secretary of the S-nate. He believed that the other side of the chamber bad at last come to its senses There was an opinion on the Pacific coast that the Ser.vor from Massachusetts (Mr. Dawes) and his colleagues were op posed to placing any restriction upon the immigration of the Chinese. Whether that were true or cot, time would develop; but the present action of the Senate would strengthen that opinion. Mr. Dawes inquired to what party were the prople of California Indebted for any merits which the Chinese treaties might contain? To whom were they indebted for the fact that those treaties were not to-day the law of the land? Mr. Beck taunted the Republicans with cowardice in not going into executive ses sion. They had not dared to do so because of divisions in their party on important nominations. The Senator from Minnesota (Ur. McMillan) had declared himself re sponsible for the nomination of Mr. John son as Chief Clerk, and the Senator from Virginia (Mr. Mahone) had de clared himself responsible for the nomination of Mr. Gorham. If the Senate went into executive session and some im portant nomination came up and either of those gentlemen voted against the nomina tion there would be ao more pairon age for them from the administration. If they voted for it then the stalwart, Republicans would see that none of the men that they wanted would hold places. There fore, the Committee of Seven, the Com mittee of Safety or the Economical Council, had been appointed to dictate to the consciences of the Senators. The Republican organ in this city had announced that the Republicans were going into executive session so carefully guarding their action that they would allow no controverted nomination to be consider ed at all. Tbe Democrats were not to be allowed to take any part in the executive session, but were to sit with arms folded and let the Republicans settle matters to whatever extent they dared. Mr. Dawes expressed his surprise at what be termed the novel announcement that there was a great gulf yawning before the Republican members of the Sentae. It was all new to him. Mr. Saulsbury took the fl >or In denial of the charge made by Mr. Dawes that the Democratic Senators were responsible for the delay iu transacting public business, and asserted the contrary to be the truth. He argued in opposition to the right, cf the Vice President to cast bis vote upon the question of the election of officers, and declared that upon such a question the Democratic Senators would not consent lhat the Republicans should be placed iu a posi tion in which the vote of the Vice President might be used to give them power which did not belong to them. He contended that the Democrats were justified in all that they had done in resisting the passage of the pending reso lution and cognate questions connected with i’. He did not charge that any bargain had been entered into, but he did assert that the people of the country beiieved it, and would believe that the election of Mr. Rid dleberger was the consummation of that bargain. That would tend to cast re proach upon tbe Senate. The corrup tion and jobbery which Lad existed for years in 6ome of the Executive Departments of the government had been well calculated to lessen the estimation ot the people for the Executive branch of the government, and he protested against anv action of the Senate which would still further lessen the government In the estimation of the people. He warned the Republicans that their course would bring tbe present adminis (ration unto disrepute. He was not sure thst the administration could have one half of its nominations confirmed except for the aid which it ex pected from the Democrats. But if this thing kept up, if the administration was to aid in strengthening the hands of repudia tion in the Southern States, be (Mr. Sau’s bury) for one would say unhesitatingly that thaf administration was not worthy of his support. lne motion to go into executive session was lo6t, yeas 21; navs 22. An hour was consumed in calling the roll upon dilatory motions, and then, at 3:15, on motion of Mr. Dawes, the Senate adjourned. VIRGINIA’S TAX ON OUTSIDE MANUFACTURES. A decision was rendered in the Supreme Court of the United States to day in the case of J. T. Weber, plaintiff in error, against the State of Virginia, upon a writ of error to the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia. Tee question presentedffiy this case is the constitutionality of those provisions of the revenue laws of Virginia which practically impose a discriminating tax upon the manu factures of other States when brought into Virginia fer sale. This court holds that certain sections of the revenue laws of Vir ginia,which Impose a special tax upon agents of i .reign manufacturers who come there to sell goods of foreign origin, is a clear dis crimination in favor of home manufacturers and against the manufacturers of other States, and that they are therefore an in fringement of the power vested iu Congress to regulate commerce among States. Where a power Is vested exclusively in the Federal Government and its exercise is essentially to the perfect freedom of commercial Inter course between citizens of the several States, the interfering action of the States must give wav. The judgment was reversed with costs, and the cause remanded for further proceedings. TRE CAUCUS COMMITTEE PREPARED TO RE PORT. The committee appointed by the Repub lican caucus last week to prepare a plan of action in regard to tbe contemplated hold ing of executive sessions reached an agree ment to-day. The committee will recom mend to the caucus to morrow morning that executive sessions be held forthwith for the transaction of business in the follow ing order; First. To refer to the appropriate com mittees all nominations now on the table. Second. To take up for final action the various treaties which now await ratifica tion and next to consider all uncontested nominations already reported, or that may hereafter be reported from the Senate Com- m The 6 "report will not take the ground that no other nominations should be considered during the present session, but that the programme of business for the present should be restricted in this manner. The report, if adopted by the caucus, will pro bably result In the holding of an executive session to-morrow afternoon. THE RECEIPTS OF SIX PER CENTS. The total amount of 6 per cents, received at tbe Treasury Department to date for con tinuance at 3>£ per cent, interest is $52,000,- 575. COLORED JURORS. Important Decision of tle Supreme Court—A Delaware Negro Tried by a White Jury Appeals Irorn the State Court—Tne Case Remanded* Washington, May 2. — A decision was rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States to-day in the case of William Neal against the State of Delaware, iu error, from the Court of Oyer and Terminer for New Castle county. Neal, who is a negro, was indicted, tried and sentenced to death by the State court for the crime of rape. His appeal to this court is based upon the fact that the State court refused to grant a motion made by him that the indictment and panel of jurors be quashed for the reasou that colored men were excluded from the grand and petit juries, by which he was in dicted and tried. This court holds that the exclusion of colored persons from juries, which is complained of in this case, did not, as a matter of law, re sult from the constitution and laws of the State. The ease, therefore, could not have been properly removed to the Federal courts. Since, however, there was an Improper exclusion of colored men on account of race from the juries, by which he was in dicted and tried, the State court erred in refusing to grant the motion of the accused to quash the indictment and the panels of jurors. Its judgment is, therefore, reversed, with costs, and case remanded, with directions to set aside the judgment and verdict, as well as the order denying the motions to quash the indictment and penels of jurors, and for such proceedings upon a further hearing of those motions as mav be consistent with the principles of the opinion of this court. Mr. Justice Harlan delivered the opinion, Chief Justice Waite and Mr. Justice Field dissenting. ST. LOUIS ALARMED. Serious Outlook Along the Water Front-Inundation of ttio Low lands. St. Louis, May 2.—Very serious appre hensions are beginning to be felt for the safety of property along the river front. The water is now nearly a foot and a half above the danger line, and is still rising. The lowland south of Chauteau avenue and east of the high embankment of the Iron Mountain Railroad is submerged. The Meser [lron Works, on the eastern side of the river opposite Uaroudelet, are suirounded by]water and have suspended operations, though there is not any immediate danger. South of this, however, in that portion of the city occu pied by the Union stock yards and the great lumber interests, there is much trouble. In East St. Louis there is great danger of a general overflow. Cahakia creek, which runs through the town, is overflowed from the backwater, and a great extent of country iu the neighbor hood of Brooklyn and Venice, two small towns north of Erst St. Louis, is submerg ed, causing many families to abandon their houses. The water is also encroaching on the national stock yards, but It has not reached them yet, nor has the business of the yards been interfered with. Much of the bottom further inland over toward the bluffs Is said to be inundated and the growii g crops destroyed. Ail the roads are strengthening their tracks and protecting their properly. But a few inches more rise in the water will cause great damage and much interference with husiness, and possi bly suspension of traffic oa some of the roads. ILLINOIS LAND LEAGUERS. Tbe State Convention—Solid Support Pledged to Ireland. Chicago, May 2.—The Illinois State Lind League Convention met in this city yesterday. Three hundred and eighty six delegates were present from all parts of the State. One of the resolutions adopted pledges the convention to the raising of $250,000 before January 1, 1882, to further the Irbh cause. Another resolution pledges the members of the Land League of Illinois, individually and collectively, to devote their energies, fortunes, and if need be their liyes, to the furtherance of the Irish land movements, and the unquali fied emancipation of the people of Ireland from tin intolerable yoke of feudal tyranny. Richard Prendargrast made a fierce attack on the policy of Mr. Gladstone and his present land bill, stating that it was obnox ious not only to the people, but to the most conservative body of all—the Raman Catholic hierarchy and clergy. ■ . - ■ TIIE NEW YORK STOCK WARKET.

Serious State of Affairs In the West of Ireland —The Parliamentary Oath BUl—Laboncbere to Oppose tbe Beaconsfield monument—An Ironclad Ordered to Tunis —The Report of Peace with the Basutos Confirmed. London, May 2—Accounts from the west of Ireland represent that the state of affairs there is becoming very serious. A cumber of outrages of various degrees of atrocity are reported. Bands of armed men promenade throughout the country and ter rorize the inhabitants unchecked. The Times states that the opposition in the House of Commons will not formally oppose the government’s bill for the amend ment of the Parliamentary oath act. The Times, in a leading editorial article this morning, says : “It has been our pain ful duty to record during the past two or three weeks acts of outrage In the West and South of Irelaud, scarcely Inferior in atrocity to those which awakened the na tional conscience four months ago. To-day the record of agrarianism is more serious than at any time since Parliament met in January.” In the House of Commons to day Mr. Lewis gave notice that he will oppose the bill for the amendment of the Parliamentary oath act by an amendment that, since the bill, as intended, is to facilitate the admis sion of professed Atheists into the House of Commons, the House declines to be a party to it. Mr. Labourchere announced that he would oppose the motion for the erection of a mouument to the late Lord Beaconsfield by moving the previous question. The an nouncement was greetea with cheers from the Radical members. In the House of Commons this afternoon, Sir Chas. W. Dilke, Under Foreign Secre tary, confirmed the announcement from Constantinople that an Imperial irade had been is ued authorizing the Porte to accept the proposed solution of the Greek frontier question. In the House of Commons this evening Sir Charles W. Dilke, replying to a ques tion, said that the Monarch ironclad has been ordered to Tunis, and has probably already arrived there. She would, he said, protect Europeans in case of disturbances, but he hoped none would occur. Right Hon. M. E. Grant Duff confirmed the news of the conclusion of peace with the Basutos. Lord Randolph Churchill opposed Mr. Glads'one’s motion for the postponement of the order of tbe day, to allow lor the in troduction of the bill to amend the Parlia mentary oath act. After a motion to adjourn had been de feated by a vote of 318 to 43, the House agreed that Sir Henry James, Attorney General, should Introduce a bill to amend the Parliamentary oath act to uight, and the debate on that subject was adjourned until Friday night. The debate on the land bill was resumed. Dublin, May 2 —John Dillon was ar rested to night while on hi 6 way to Dublin. Mr. Dillon’s speech in Tipperary last evening wasone of the bitterest and most un compromising he has made. He advised the people to keep within the law, not because he respected it or thought they respected it, but for the sake of preserving their or ganlzitton they must exercise their ingenui ty to sail as close to the liue as possible. THE CZAR DEFIED. A Bold Manifesto from the Nihilist Executive Committee. Berlin, May 2.—lntelligence from Bt. Petersburg reports that the manifesto of the Nihilist Executive Committee, printed on the 17th of April, says: “The verdict against the Nihilists, who have just received the martyr’s crown, was dictated as well as con firmed by the Czar. The first act of his autocratic will thus has been the hanging of women without waiting for his corona tion. He has sprinkled his throne with the blood ot the champions of national right. Oyer the graves of our colleagues we pub licly affirm that we will continue our efforts for the liberation of the people. We will no more be deterred by the gallows than were Soloveitff and other ebam pions of the last reign. After the event of the 13th of March the Executive Committee Informed the Emperor that the only means of reverting to the path of peaceful development was by an appeal to the people. Judging by the execution the Supreme Power has elected to appeal to lhe hangman. So be it.” The committee defers pronouncing any judgment on the general policy of the E nperor, but it declares that a reactionary policy will lead to consequences more dis astrous than the event which took place In March. The manifesto concludes by ap pealing to all who would shake off slaver) to co-operate in the struggle for liberty. TIIE NASHVILLE RACES. Opening of the Blooded Ilorse Amo* ciatiou’s Meeting.

Herr Gerhard Rholfs has reached here from his mission on behalf of the German Emperor to King John. He says he met with a cordial reception. King John charged him to negotiate peace between Abyssinia and Egypt. Herr Rholfs accepted the mission, provided Ger many sanctioned it. Herr Rholfs will sail for Europe to-morrow, but will return to Egypt shortly if the peace mission is ap proved. He says he believes Abyssinia will declare war unless a definitive treaty is accorded. Captured by Brigands and Thought to be Drowned. London, May 2. —A dispatch from Con stantinople says: “The retreat of the brigands who captured Mr. Suter, an Eng lishman, near Sallonlca, recently, demanding £15,000 ransom for him, was cut off on the land side by the Turkish troops and by sea by gunboats. A Turkish gunboat recently chased a bark which was believed to have been manned by brigands, and haviDg several times vainly summoned her to stop, sank her. It is feared that Mr. Suter was on board the bark.” The Ameer Under Russian Protec tion.

The Blots iu Kherson. St. Petersburg, May 2.—Two hundred persons were injured in the riot against the Jews at Eilzabethgrad. Detachments of cavalry and infantry now patrol the streets. The approaching fair at that place is indefi nitely postponed, at the request of the Town Council. A Coming Catholic Congress. Madrid, May 2. —The Liberal states that a Catholic Congress will be held in October which will be attended by Catholic notables from every part of the world. Provided the great organs of the body are not irreparablv injured, there are few dis eases that Tutt’s Fills will not cure. They concentrate the vitality of the system. The Liver, the Spleen, tbe Heart and the Kid neys are brought Into harmonious action and health, long life and vigor of mind and body follow their use. The first dose often astonishes the patient. SAVANNAH, TUESDAY, MAY 3, 1881. LETTER FROM COL. H. S. HAINES. Reply to Personal Strictures—A Plain Statement of Facts—The Des potic Powers Vested In tbe Com mission and the Helplessness of the Roads—A Forcible and Unan swerable Document. It is not always a pleasant thing to make personal explanations In the newspapers, and I would not ask the use of valuable space In the Mornino News for that pur pose but for reasons which, I hope, are of sufficient public interest to warrant the request. My attention has been called to an edito rial article in the Southern Enterprise of the 20th ultimo, which here follows In full: THE RAILROAD COMMISSION. “There Is a big effort being made all aloDg this line of road —the Bavannab, Florida and Western—to get up a feeling of opposition to the Commission. We expect it will be in part successful. Mr.-Haines, who is the General Manager of the Savannah, Florida and Western, is a most excellent gentle man, a thorough railroad man and very popular along the line of his road, and when he sets himself to work to create a feeling against the Commission, he is very likely to succeed. We believe Mr. Haines was the author of the Commission to this extent, that he suggested to the committee the idea of having a Commission of three men, instead of fixed rates in the act itself, and he deserves great credit for the part be took in the matter. Now, however, there is a difference between Mr. Haines and the Com mission, and he wishes the Commission abolished, or the law modified. We feel just this way about the whole matter. We wish to see the roads generally, and espe cially this road, the Savannah, Florida and Western, make enough to pay all expenses, Including Interest on Its bonded debt and a fair percentage on all capital actually in vested in the road. The present Commis sioners claim that they have fixed their rates so that this can be done; it seems very evident that other roads have found it so; but if the Savannah, Florida and Western does not find it so, let them present a show ing, based on actual experience, the actual receipts and expenditures under the Com missioners’ rates, to the Commissioners, and we believe they will give better rates, if necessary. If they refuse then, we believe the road can and ought to get relief at the hands of the Legislature. We do not believe any amount of theorizing or any talk about the Commission standing in the way of the extension of the road or anything of that kind will have any effect on the members of the General Assembly—what they want and must have to act on is proof, in figures, that the receipts are not enough to pay expenses, including interest, and leave a fair per cent, to the stockholders on money actually invested. “tVe have no desire to antagonize the road, but on the contrary desire to see it prosper, and are particularly anxious to see it extended towards New Orleans suffi clently far to place it on the direct line of Jay Gould’s Pacific road. Still we think it. ought to do the very best it can to make money under the Commission’s rules, aud do it cheerfully, and then, if it fails, we be- j lleve relief will come.” The article is considerately and kindly ex pressed, as might be expected from the character of the courteous gentlemau who wrote it. Indeed the complimentary re ferences to me are more than I deserve. If, upon our own line and among our own i friends, the course of the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway Company, and the acts of its General Manager are misunder stood, there is occasion for this explanation. This is not the first Mine that we have been pointed at as “fighting the Commis sion.” If by “fighting the Commission” is meant a resort to peaceful and lawful means of ascertaining whether the Commission could establish freight, and passage tariffs for the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway Company that would reduce its income below its expenditures, then the bondholders and stockholders of this company must plead guilty to the charge, with whatever of odium may attach to It. But I have yet to be convinced that the people of Georgia want anything of the railroads but what Is just and fair, or that the Legislature intend ed anything else when it created the Com mission. I believe this, despite Judge Woods’ refusal to take this view of the case in doing so be followed the assertion o? the United States Supreme Court that when the constitution of a State gave the Legisla ture the power to make railroad rates, that court would not Interfere, even though a railroad corporation would be bankrupted thereby. Able counsel thought, and still think, that neither the convention which framed our constitution nor the Legislature which made the law, intended that private property should be damaged for public pur poses without just compensation. Be that as it may, the courts will not, for the pres ent, protect railroad property against any damage that the Commission may do to it. What are the owners of this property, or perhaps I should not 6ay the owners, but those who bid it in at a public sale ordered by Judge Woods’ own court and paid their money for It, wbat are they to do? Are they to suffer and be silent? Are those who are responsible to these stockbolders for a prudeDt, business-like management of their property to kiss the rod that smites them, aDd come up smiling for further punishment every time the Railroad Commission issues a star chamber edict, heard of for the first time in a newspaper advertisement? I for one, say No 1 As long as this is a country in which free speech and a free press isnotforbiddeti, I intend to make use of both in defending tbe interests of the company which I have the honor to serve, whenever I perceive that they are in daDger. I shall do this notwith standing the official announcement of the Commission that its power-’, “like thumb screws, take a powerful hold, so that even litigation to test them is daDgerous.” Truer words were never uttered, as events have shown, and it will be well for the Legisla ture, at Its approaching session, to let the people see whether It will continue to dele gate such despotic power to three officials— the power to condemn a railroad corporation to bankruptcy without trial and without ap peal. The editor of the Southern Enterprise will please bear in mind in any future discussion of this matter that the complaint of this company Is that the Commissioners’ rates will not furnish an income sufficient to meet its expenses. The complaint may not be well founded, but, if we honestly believe it, would the management of the company not fall to do its duty if It did not try by all lawful means to prevent such a catastrophe? It is of no use to say that we should cry out to the Commission; we have been there. We have put up our piteous wail to spare us,but in vain. A statement was made in detail of the annual earnings of the road for the past eight years. A comparison was made of the business of each station, showing what it had been at our own rates, and wbat it would be at the Commissioners’ rates, and that the average loss would he over #140,000 per annum. If the General Manager and the Treasurer of the road are truthful men, then there was no doubt of the result. The so-called “stand ard” rates had been made by three gentle men who never made a freight rate before in their lives. Indeed, they did not make these. They copied them from the rates of tbe Georgia Road and the Western and Atlantic Road. They borrowed the classifications made by tbe Southern Railroad and Steamship Association, commonly known as the “pool,” and they applied these rates to tbe business of a company over whose line, I believe, neither one of them had ever been What we asked was to leave our rates alone until it was seen whether we could earn a dividend with them If we had been permitted to do so, aDd bad earned too much money, then there might have been 6ome show of justice in tbe course of tbe Commission. Wbat wonder that the stockholders sought elsewhere for relief ? I have been told that the Commis sioners were very much offended at this, and that we need never expect favorable consideration from them hereafter. I do not believe this. I agree with their newspaper champions that the public career of these gentlemen Is sufficient war rant that they would not misuse the des potic powers delegated to them by the Legislatuie. Ido not wish to suggest such a thing. I only mention it to show tbe impressions that have been made by their treatment of our company, and to call at tention to the possible consequences if this great and uncontrolled power should hap pen to get into worse hands. I do not doubt that they are honestly convinced that we can make eight per cent, dividends on their rates. lam equally honest in my con victions that we cannot. My convictions are based on an Intimate knowledge of the business of the road for the past fifteen years. What is it to us if the other roads in tbe State can earn a dividend at the Commis sioners’ rates, if we cannot? That is our complaint. Last year, the most prosperous one that railroads have known for many years, our company earned barely enough at its own rates for a 7 per cent, dividend. The stockholders had Intended to spend it all on the road, but as they did not know when they would be permitted to earn another, they changed their minds and put It in their pockets. If they change their minds about extending tbelr road to Pollard, or about laying steel rail between Waycross and Thomasville, or about running through sleepers from the West to Florida via Albany, who can blame them for that? As to my creating a feeling against the Commission, I have only to say in reply that i I have been too busy building the Waycross and Jacksonville Line to be employed in any such business. Personally, I have the kindest feelings towards the gentlemen comprising the Commission. If they will only let our company earn a fair income from its property they will never hear a word from me save in praise. But 1 believe that, as public officials, their acts are open to criticism, which they will certainly receive from me upon matters affecting the interests under my charge, and upon which I feel that I am competent to form a correct opinion. As already stated I do not feel that I fully deserve the compliments paid me by my friend of many years, the editor of the Southern Enterprise. I do deserve them to this extent, that I have earnestly endeavored to develop the resources of Southern Georgia. Every new enterprise in that region has received prompt and valuable encouragement whenever it has been brought to my notice. I have diligently sought to bring forward young men of promise from Southern Georgia whenever the opportunity offered, and I shall continue these efforts so lonsr as the stockholders of the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway Company continue their confidence in me, or the Railroad Commission leaves me any power as General Manager. Hoping that this explanation will set both our company and myself right with the people of Southern Georgia, I am your obedient servant, HI S. Haines. THE BEAUFORT HARBOR. Tle New Hampshire to be Ordered Away—Fears that the Harbor Will be Abandoned—The South Carolina Press Association. Beiufort, S. C., April3’.—Orders have been received on board of tbe ship New Hampshire, which has been stationed in Port Royal harbor for the past five years, to repair to Norfolk, there to be overhauled, then to be sent to New port, R. 1., where she will thenceforward be employed as a training ship. It is feared that this movement may be 'the precursor of a de termination to abandon Port Royal as a naval station, and that the Pawnee, which has been an attending store ship, will soon follow, and the waters of our grand and spacious harbor be left desolate. A meeting of the citizens of Beaufort and Port Koyal was called this afternoon, and a preamble and resolutions were passed request ing the Honorable Secretary of the Navy, in the event of the removal of the New Hamp shire. that another vessel be sent to supply her place, and that the station be thus kept up. I)r. Hale Stuart was called to the chair, and Colo Del T. G. White was requested to act as Secretary. A committee was appointed to for ward the resolutions to the Secretary of the Navy, begging that, in view of our having no fortifications or forts appropriated for by Con gress, that our harbor oe protected by a trian of war, permanently to be stationed in our waters. Beaufort is all astir at present, making pre parations for the reception and entertaiument of the State Press Association, which meets here on Thursday next. A grand and impos ing reception is to be given tne representatives of the press, who are to be entertained from Wednesday evening until Friday morning, when the members will leave for an excursion to Florida via Savannah.
