Sin Raak I bill on papers, and advocated the
La. anv distance for one cent. The effect of
Li's b'll waa to confine the circulation of
Vsrs to the immediate vi. m.ty of the place of
33cation, greatly to the prejudice of c-ty RtMM.
birtve notice be would move to amend the bill
La insert!' g ths Houae provision.
Mr 8mit? said the bill already discriminated
gfr-.ij, in favor of the country press. Coun
m oilers now paid thirteen ceota per quarter?
S B reduced this rate and allowed them to go
Ss miles for five cents per quarter. How much
oa-'erooald it be reduced? Wby doea the Sena
tor daiWe with a petty two and a half centa per
uarter' Wby not say at once, carry them for
?-thing ' Revenues of the department must be
,,staii..-.l and a farther reduction was dangerous.
Mr. Ma*oh came from a section where fortu
jstely there were but few towns. He considered
wintry papers as entitled to every encourage
o?ct. He did not understand wby petty, ephem
sail papers were allowed to be carried outside of
' ue mail from large cities into country districts.
This waa wrong. The country papers should be
Mr. Hisk followed in opposition to the amenJ
Mr. BsssOM and Jona Davi? took similar views.
Mr. Cka-e modified his amendment so as to
iiie the postage of weekly papers within fifty
siles three instead of five cents per uarter.
Aorodment lost - Ay es 20, N ny s 21.
Mr. Du Mason would bo in fivor, if the counfv
SSJfaily settled, to give up the whole postage
kssjajsj to private individuals. He thought this
toaid relieve the Government of one of tbe most
rerinsdowing and corrupting influences. Hut this
-oaid not be done now. He moved, in order to
-Mtore the law of ' I?, by striking out tbe provis
mtaat regular weekly papers shall be carried
tffy milts for five cents per .,uarter, and Insert
'ist newspapers shall be passed through the mail
titsin the County of publication and for thirty
ailea free of postage.
Mr. Smith considered this aa a proposition to
lilow store than half of all weekly papers to be
rimed free of postsge,
Mr. DWsTJMOM considered the amendment
aide no discrimination against city papers. The
dsiijr issue of tbe Ntw> York Herala was greater
Usothatof all the weekly papers in New-York
together [What a whopper, Mr. Dickinson!
The duly issue of the Hi raid ia about 96,000
ropies, while the Wetkly Ttibune alone circulates
r,000 copies.]
Mr 8> waki. said that the number of daily is
? ei of four pspers in New-York city for a week
mounted to two hundred and thirty-five thousand
ropies, while that of one hundred and fifty week
h papers averaging seven hundred each, amount?
ed only to one hundred and five thousand. There
was s large balance then in favor of the city press.
Amendment rejected?20 yeas. Nsys 31.
Mr. BlWAUD moved to strike out the tariff of
rites as proposed by Mr. Ri ?k'< bill, so as to
make it conform to the bill as it came from the
House, charging one cent on each psper weighing
'ess thsn three ounces for sny distance. Mr.
Ri sk read a letter from the Postmaster General,
that unless something be done with regard to
oewspapers in the mails the failures would be
Mr Downs said the mail now failed four times
a week, and if this waaquadrupled the Post Office
had better he shut up. Amendment lost. The

Mr. Ca>s offered a resolution, whieh was adopt

Mr HtMMN reported a bill prohibiting Ameri?
can vessels, trading to Africa, except to Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Gallinas, unless they clear from
ports in the United States or Europe.
The Deficiency bill was returned from the
House with an amendment to the Senate's amend
Best A debate followed, and the bill was post?
Tbe Senate went into Kxecntive Session, and
Mr. Stan-ion of Teon. from the Committee on
Naval Atlu:rs. ret ried a bill authorizing the es?
tablishment ?I s line of Mail S.esmers from San
I rancisco to the Sandw.cli Islands and ports of I
China, to consist o six vessels; and a line be?
tween Philadelphia an I No.folk an.! Antwerp,
teaching it other ports of Europe, to consist of
'our vessels?to be so constructed as to be con?
verted into war steamers, on te.ms similar to Col?
lins line . the Government to advance six mil?
lions ot stock Mr. Stantou hoped the bill would
lie on the Speaker a tab-In, to eoSM up as an order
as the day nest Monday.
Mr SiarHgKS of Ga , waa against it out aud
out. and moved to lay the bill ou the table.
Tbe question waa taken fid decided in the neg?
ative?Yeas - - Nays, 91.
Mr 8TARTOR moved to ref r the bill to the Com
aiittee of the Whole.
Mr Hi Lank of Md. opposed the bill, saying that
it was a proposition to build ships for merchants
to cam on the trade of the world.
Mr BaTM aaked whether the gentleman had
any doubt about the power to maintain and sup?
port a Navy.
Mr M. L am had do idea his friend would be
band advocating this scheme.
Mr. Ba> m was prepared to defend the vote he
gave for not laying the bill on the table.
Mr. McLank. aaid he had a proposition from
Merchants of Baltimore to establish a lino of
steam e-s from that city to Liverpool and Rio, but
it never eatered into their minda that Government
should build the shipa. They only aak what others
ask, to carry the mail and bo paid for it- They
Voald look with astonishment ou their representa?
tive, if he should lend himself to establish a
monopoly on the Pacific
Mr. Miaue wished the gentlemen to tell him
lbs difference between paying three timoa what
?be man service ia worth to build war steamers
between New-York and Kurope, and i'i it of pay
the amount the vessel is worth

Another trial to elect a Senator took place to?

In the morning several ballotings were had, on
one of which Commodore Stockton had M votes,
one less than the requisite number. After these,
it was moved to rescind the rule adopted on Fri?

number of members elected. This motion carried,
and the meeting adjourned till afternoon.
Hut on coming together in the afternoon it was

NOLLIfICATMMi II Ala?*M4.?Delegttet to
a Southern lligute' Btate Convention met at Mo?
bile, on the 1 Oth inst, and continued in session
throa days. This Convention waa composed of
delegates from 1'itanionitt Clubs. Col. Thomas
WILLIAMS, of the Montgomery Club, presided,
and among the delegates we noticed W. L. Yen
coy,A. P. Haghy, and other well known Hit
unionist Loco Peers. The following resolutions
trerfl adopted by this august body, which, it will
be seen, forms a separate political organization of
the Southern ultras:
l'reamhli and Jit solution* adopted by ihe Southern
Rights Convention.
The preamble to the Constttuuju of Ihe Colled Statte
declares the objects for which the Government of lha
I t.::rd States was formed. Those objects were " to form a
ii.ore perfect L'nlon,establish ,uslice, ensure domestic traa
qalhxy, provide for the common defense, prsmote tha gaa
ersl wrifsie, and secure the blesstngs of liberty to oar
selves ai d i'ur posterity "
Those objects, in onr opinion, have been wilfully disre?
garded In the administration ol the Government ? cisa
menclng with the law admitting Missouri Into the Union.
and closing wltn tie late system of measures, miscalled
the Compromise.
TI.e preiense upon is hlch this system of hostile legisla?
tion has been based, Is thai S.ave>y Is a moral and poMUcal
evil?Its end snd aim is Ihe emancipation of every slave la
the I ntted States.
1 he (iovsrnmeni Is In tho hands ut a sectional majority,
acd political Interest and conscientious convictions of duty
j alike urge them to ihe successful prosecution of this system
I Believing that the aim In ibe formation of tbls Govera

the delegate* ol the Southern Rights Associations of Ala?
bama, 'n Convention assembled, do resolve:
I Thst, In our opinion, the powe s granted to the (Jane
rai Government by the people of the Slates, bare, for aloatT
a ins of jrars, been perverted by a dominant sectional SB*>
juiiymihe aggranui/ernent of the non-slaveoolding, end
