Mr. Joh niton, of Arkansas, contended j that thia was not a question of privilege, I . and, therefore, that it did not winentede In* i motion to procctd to the consideration of i the army tiill. I Mr. Crittendeo presented ttie credential* j ( of (ien. Shield*, which wu* reail. Tint t’hair -luted that having heard tlie ; | letter and credential* reail. he would put tin | question to the Senate w lie tier they would take up the ipnwtion a* u (|ue*tiou of privi lege or not. Mr. Hunter thought tin question might well fie ruistsl with regard to the right of tlie Senator* from Minnesota to lie admitted ted to *eut* ; hut lie (lid not tcgurd it u* u question of privilege, lie believed that iu the cam* of Michigan and Tennessee mem- | Iht* were admitted by courteay in adrance but not u* a question of privilege. Mr. Pugh expressed the opinion that this was a ipiCHtioii of privilege. It wa* true, n* stated in tlie letter which had L*s-n rend, tliat i the !ir*t enabling act ir the case of Ohio i wa* the act of ailmi**ioti; in fuet, there nev er wu* any other. After u constitution hail Urn formed. when the agent* of the State presented the constitution to the Senate, it 1 wa* refer ns I to a select committee to con sider what further steiw. if any, were iws sary in order for the udmi-tsioii of the 'tute > I into the Union. After consideration, the committee reported to the Senate that noth- j ing more wu* necessary to complete hi rad , mission, except to establish a Lnitisl State* district court ia Ohio, and nothing more wa* done thau to |>u*s an act istablishing that district court. No other enabling act wa* ever |**wsl. When the first ambling act wa* pawed, it w as justified upim the ground that it wa* u conditional act of admiohon ; : and when the State to be formed complied with the condition*, *he wa* in tlie ( nion , ; without anythinglurtla-r. That wu* the Us I ginning ot ull enabling act*. For that rea -1 son lie did not think it necessary lor Kan su* or any other State to bare any enabling | act; but, at tlie same time, be dkf not think l that Minnesota had complied with the term* of the enabling uct which I uni Ut*n puiwd. lor lie did not think she liad ever held a 1 convention under the term* of iha law ; but he did not regard the**' a* fatal, for Congress could heal them by joint nwolution, or a suit- I sequent act in relation to the matter. When a gentleman nnwented himself here, claim ] ing to U* rece'vtxf a* the n grisentative of a State, ho regarded that a* a question of privilege ; but in lU' present case ho did not think that MinmwoU had no fur complied with the term* of her udniK*i»n a* to entitle her Senator* to Itc sworn in without sonic further action by ('ongrvs*. Mr. Mason cotH'tirreil with the view* of hi* colleague, and asked if an applicant lor a seat was a Senator U'torc lie t»»>k the oath 1 Mr. Crittenden replied that although it might U* exceedingly prtqsT. and wa* re i|inrisl by law. that an oath should lie taken, vet that ceremony constitutid no part ol hi* senatorial powers.

Mr. Toombs took the ground that the whole matter in dispute depended upon tbe answer to the tingle question, is Minnc-nota a State in thie Union or not ? If she was, the applicant was entitled to his seat, and not without. How should that question be decided ? The Committee on the Judiciary wm the most proper tribunal, and be there fore submitted the following reeointioo: Rttthutl, That th* question ot the admission of James Shield* to act la this body as Beoator from tho State of Minnesota be referred to the Committee on th* Judiciary, with iastruction* ta inquire whether or not Minnesota is a Btate in the Union under the constitution and laws. Mr. tiiininoua thought that Minnesota was nearer a State in the Union than Rhode Island was from 17«7 to 17'Jl, before she accepted the constitution, for then they were out of the jurisdiction of tlie United .State*, und no revenue law could Iks enforced upon them. But certainly Miotsoota was within tbe jurisdiction of tlie United States. The (mention tieing taken, the resolution of Mr. Toombs was agreed to.

Co.: Your noti! of the 12th inst., nspesting , from me a brief report concerning the loca tion and extent of location of the line of the Transit Ituilrad, ha* been n*Ceired, and in answer I submit the following : On the 24th of May lust, two corps ot i Kngincers were organisei] in this place and proceeded at once to make such reconnois sancc of the country, respecting it* general tonographieal features, the direction of it* : valleys and dividing ridges, etc., a* seemed necessary to enable me to enter upon the actual location of the line most advantage ously. These rapid examination* were I however closely followed, and wlien neces- ; sary were immediately connected with more minute instrumental examinations and sur vey*. Passing over the country in thi* manner from Winona to the Mims sola river, I met with no obstacle of sufficient magni tude worthy of note, except in the valley* extending from Winona prairie to or near the summit of tlie “divide” between the Whitewater and Hoot rivers. After having examined all the valleys, I finally located the line in the Rollingttonc valley, attaining the summit above ref. rrisl to at an elevation ol ft7o feet above the level of Winona, and at a distutnv of sixteen miles from the starting point. Thi* i* by far the most difficult por tion of the road, yet,even here, no olwtacle i* presented of sufficient magnitude to ren der thi* valley impracticable, or even objec tionable. Having overcome the difficulties met with, the line was speedily located via or neur St. Charles, Rochester, Ashland, tlie south end ; of lake F.lysium, and Kasota. to St. Peter. 1 The road from Winona to Isikr Klymum | varies very little from an air line, and it* ' course lieing nuxtly through straight valleys an I dividing ridges, it will l»e newt easily and cheaply constructed, possessing a* it : j docs to a very remarkable degree, gentle 1 grades, and long tangent*, whilst but few bridges will be necessary. Near this lake j we reached the "Rig Wood*," which extend i toSt. Peter, a distance of 2t> mile*. Through- : ' out the entire length of thi* division from Winona to St. Peter, there will be but seven 1 : mile* of heavy grades, and expensive work —five miles on the eastern and two on tlie western end. (saving St Peter, th* line rises to an el- 1 crution of 200 feet utsive the Minnesota river, and |>ass‘ , s for mile* over a plat*'U, al most |*rfcetlv level, which Imt a small ex penditure will prejxvre for the superstruct ure. The second cr* swing of the Minneosta is near tl*'mouth of the Big Cottonwood. 'l’ll*- ileseent into the valley at this point, as well as the ascent from it to the high laud*, between the Rig Cottonwood and Ifeslwnoil rivers, presents easy grades, ami will be ef fected at a comparatively light cost. This crossing, like the previous one at St. Peter, is made diagonally along the hills or blutF* of the river, and across the valley in a north w*>t ami south-east direction. From the New Ulm s* ttlem*nt. pausing along the di vide between the Rig Cottonwixul an*l R*sl wo*«i rinrs. we exten*led our survey ami location of the line to a point about twelve miles lK>y**nd range 31.
