Mr. Barrin'ger introduced a bill to incorporate the Swift Island Gold Mining Company. Goes on the calendar and made special order for Saturday next Mr. Avcra moved a reconsideration of the vote, by which the bill for the relief of indigent families of the deceased and sick and wounded soldiers, was passed on yesterday. Mr. Worth said that be hoped that the motion to reconsider would prevail. He heartily approved of the object the bill bad in view, but he thought that it was impracticable to carry it out as it was passed. He could see no manner for the Treasurer to be in formed how many indigent families, the number pf each fatuity, 4c., hit, there were in each county. He-would have no means of knowing these facts, aod, under the bill, could not pay out the amount appropriated. Tf the amount had to be distributed in accordance with the provisions of the bill'as it stood before the araerduient of the gentleman from Sdgecombe, Mr. Cobb, there would be no difficulty attending the matter. If the House thought proper to adhere to that amendment, same legislation would be necessary to enable the Treasurer to ascertain the . number tf indigent families and the number of the members of each in the counties of the State. .Mr. Spruill called for the ayes and nays. The call being sustained bj the. House, the question was " put and the vote reconsidered. - Mr. A Vera moved to strike out the amendment offered to the bill by Mr. Cobb on' yesterday, and that the bill should retain its original form. Mr. Cobb said that he thought this matter was settled by the action of the House on yesterday. He could not see'the great difficulties apprehended by the gentleman from Randolph (Mr. Worth.) The county courts had adopted quite a convenient mode of ascertaining the indigent families within their limits. He thought that his proposition was a just and equal one. If Guilford and Randolph counties had more indigent families to be supplied than his county, under this provision they would get a larger portion of the fund, and so it would hold throaghoutthe Sute. It was for this reason, as well as others, he desired his amendment It certainly was not the purpose to include the entire needy of the State ; they were provided for by each countyrbot was intended for the indigent families of the soldiers in the service and the families of those that had died and been killed in battle. He desired that the needy, wherever , in the greatest number, should bo the recipients of the largest 'amount ' Mr. Worth said that his object was merely to have the bill in such form as to render its opera tions practicable He was in favor of i$, and hoped it would pass, but could not see bow it could be carrid out without the amendment Mr. Shepherd said that there seemed to be great unanimity oft the part of the House that some bill of. the kind should be passed, and as there were several propositions before the body all having pretty much the same object in view, he moved to send a message to the Senate proponing to raise a joint select com mittee to whom all the bills and resolutions on this su'jjeet should be referred, which' motion was then agreed to. v."- . . ' . ttr. Costner moved that a resolution introduced Iby ftniself fixing certain hours for meeting and ad journment of the House be taken up and considered.

' Mr. Person said he hoped that the motion would not prevail'-. He thought the matter. of great im ' portance, and he would like to bare time to examine it that he might give an intelligent vote upon it, when called upon to do so.- Mr. Fowle said he was surprised to bear the gen i tleman from New Hanover (Mr. Person) ask for , further time ; several days had elapsed since the res olution of inquiry, for information from tbe Gov ernor, on this subject had passed and there had been published in the papers of this city an order, '(Which he "read) for several days, past under .which these arrests were made. Confederate 'of ficers were having citizens arrested daily, upon mere suspicion that they were conscripts, and had even gone so far as to arrest a member of the House; an officer in the State" department bad also been arrested He thought the Legislature should act promptly, SBd give the Governor the authority to have a stop put to it Mr. Person said that the gentleman from Wake, Mr. Fowle, might think it singular that be had not seen the order, but it was nevertheless true ; it bad escaped his attention; he had never read it, or" knew that such ' an order was in' existence, until read by the gentlemen; he had been engaged for several days past, morning, afternoon, and night, in tbe discharge of bis duties on committees, anil had there- fore not given the subject sufficient thought to vote at this time intelligently upon it . time lor this was all ho asked Mr. Waddell said that he hoped the House would suspend tbe rules snd pass the resolution. The of ficers alluded to were transcending the rules of pro priety. They bad gone bo far as to arrest one of his colleagues. It was a gross wrong and was an indictable offence, but for the military authority under which it was done. . The hour having arrived for the consideration of the special order, on Mr. Mann's motion the same was postponed 15 minutes. Mr. Alford said that he was present when the gen tleman from Chatham (Mr Ueaden) was arrested and that be knew that others parties from his' neighbor hood bad been arrested also, that were not liable as concripts; one of them a young man that had been in the service apd discharged on account of - bad health. He thought our people ought to be pro tected against such unwarranted arrests. These men say that under the orders given them they will ar rest every member of the Legislature i in. their opinion they are not beyond the age for conscripts and when asked to go with the parties arrested to some point where they can bo convinced that the person in custody is not a proper subject reply, that it is no part of their business to bv going about in that way. He hoped the resolutions would pass. ' Mr. llcadcn madeastatemcntconcerning the man ner of his arrest Mr. Shober made a statement relative to tbe ar rest of a citizen of his county. The proposition was further discussed by Messrs. Fowle and Person, when the question was put and the rules were suspended Mr. Amis offered a resolution as a substitute for Mr. Fowle's. . ' ( Upon this quite an animated and protracted dis cussion ensued participated in by Messrs. Amis, Fowle, Shepherd and Worth, which resulted in having the whole matter referred to a select com mittee of five, composed of Messrs. Shepherd Worth, McAden, Person and Waddell to consider and re port as soon as practicable. Mr. Worth tendered hjs resignation as a member of the House, to take effect on the 22d Doc. next, and a writ of election was ordered to take place on 24th to fill the vacancy.
