Times ComaEsroNDiscK. In the Senate to-day the reading of the Meseage created a irreat fluttering on tne soumern aide. The allusion in it, to the gallant Maj Anderson, was greeted with hisses and ap clause. The attempt of Senator Davis of Miss , to get the letter of the S. C. Commissioners to the President nlaced on the Senate record, was admirablv prevented by Senator King, who denounced their acts as worse than the treason of Arnold and Burr. The failure of Senator Davis' proposal to read them, is regarded as an endorsement of the Presi dent bv the Senate. The appointment of a special committee by the House, to investigate the statements of the wbole subject, is" regaraea as an en doraement of the message in that branch The Chairman, Mr. Howard, ia a 6taunch Republican.
