Mr. * AIRFIELD stood up manfully for the l?Z falL?r- ard Mr- HAYWOOD, upon some legal technicality, opposed the bill. The Senate, however, passed it, and then went into Execu ve session. The Senate remained a long while MondayUnext.8eS6,OQ' ^ lben adj?urned umil HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. A,motion was submitted that the rules be sus pended, m order to receive such reports from the standing committees as should not give rise to debate ; the motion prevailed. wiSS ^MENTER> the Commi tee on Naval Affairs, reported a bill, which was read twice, and referred to the Committee of the W hole, providing a pension for the widows and orphans of the officers, seamen, and marines of mF i Elates schooner Grampus.

He was not bound to find ears foriren tlemen who did not choose to listen to what was said and done. Mr. G. also maintained that the report of the committee could not be entertained, as the me morial was upon subjects, which, by a rule of the H^rC'i ^Co,mmfttee was bound to consider.

RULES AND ORDERS. ^ This being the business of the morning hour, Mr. RHETT, of S. C, haVing the floor, ad dressed th6 House at some length in a studied argument against the repeal of the 21st rule After alluding to the origin of the ript act in the reign of Edward IV., and its modification in the time of George I., Mr. R. argued that this right of petition was only to prevent such grievances. as the people of Great Britain and the colonies before their independence then labored under. Mr. R. considered the right to petition in this country as a right which was fulfilled by the Re presentative. lie maintained that wherever this question was compromised with, the opponents of the South gained ground, and proceeded, Btep by 6tcp, to further aggression; but wherever it was strongly met at the threshhold, there it was suppressed. He instanced New Hampshire and Massachusetts as cases to prove this. Mr. R said that there was a feeling growing up in the South that a time was coming when we would have to do as our fathers did. He believed that no rule would stop this thing. Mr. B1DLACK followed, and spoke with much feeling on the subject of the dissolution of the Union. WESTERN RIVERS. The unfinished business was the subject of re ferring this portion of the President's Message. Mr. RATHBUN.of N. Y., spoke an hour upon this subject. Mr. THOMASSON succeeded him, and in the midst of his remarks, the committee rose. And tho House adjourned. LOCAL NEWS. Dr. Lardner's Entertainments commenced on Wednesday evening, and were well attended. There seems to those who have heard him some years back an improvement in matter and man ner. His illustrations, without a lecture, are in themselves an exhibition far above the common. His panoramas and far-famed Drummond light will ampiy repay a visit. This evening is the last of the series announced.
