LAND CLERGYMEN. To the honorable Senate and House of Repre sentatives of the United States in Congress assembled: The undersigned, clergymen of different re ligions denominations in New .England, hereby, ?? the name of Almighty God, and in His pres ence, do solemnly protest against the passage of what is known as the "Nebraska bill, or any repeal or modification of existing legal prohi bitions of slavery in that part of our national domain which it is proposed to organize into the Territories of Nebraska and Kansas. We protest against it as a great moral wrong, as a breach of faith eminently injarions to the moral principles of the community, and sub versive of all confidence in national engage ments; as a measure full of danger to the peace, and even the existence of our beloved Union, and exposing us to the righteous judgments of the Almighty. And your protestants, as in duty bound, will ever pray, Ac. Datad at Boston, Massachusetts, this 1st day of March, A. D. 1864.

THIRTY-THIRD COHORKSSr FIR8T SE8SION. Senate.?Wednesday, Afril 26, 1854. Several memorials were presented snd referred. PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE. Mr. NORHLS, froiq lhe CMttuttee on the Dis trict of Columbia, reported IVand asked to be discharged from the Consideration of the memo rials praying that Pennsylvania avenue be paved with the Russ pavement. Agreed to. PORTRAITS OP PRESIDENTS. Mr. PEARCE, from the Committee on the Li brary, reported a bill appropriating five thousand dollars for the purchase of the portraits of the first five Presidents of the United States, painted by Gilbert Stuart, the same to be placed in the presi dential mansion. Mr. P. explained that these por traits were originals, and were highly commended as works of art, and be thought the government ought to avail itself of the opportunity to Secure them for the President's house. Mr. HAMLIN said he was in favor of the ap propriation, but would be more in favor of it if it provided for the purchase of portraits of all the ex Presidents. If tnere was no impropriety in it, he would be glad to have included also a portrait of the present President. Mr. PEARCE said he would have no objection to the suggestion of the senator, provided por traits of the other Presidents, by competent artists, could be procured. This proposition, however, he thought would do for a commencement. The bill was then passed. On motion by Mr. MALLORY, Repaired, That the Secretary of the Interior communi cate to the Senate copies of the contract and instructions under which Luther liiake wan employed to remove the Indiana from Florida, together with copiee of bis corre upondenee with the department upon that autyect, and of his accounts and voucher* of his expenditures a/?uch agent. THE INDIAN APPROFRIATON RILL. The Senate resumed the consideration of the bill making appropriation for the support of the Indian department for the year ending June 30, 1855. Mr. SEBASTIAN moved to amend the bill by giving the President authority to change the loca tions of the several Indian superintendences. Mr. STUART moved to amend the amendment by providing that the duties of governor and In dian superintendent of Minnesota shall be sepa rated. These amendments were debated for some time. That proposed by Mr. Stuart was rejected, and the other was adopted after adding thereto that, whenever the President shall transfer the duties of Indian superintendent from the governor of Minnesota, the salary of that governor shall remain as now, $2,500 per annum. Various other amendments, many of them to carry out the treaties lately concluded with the Camanche. Apache, and other southwestern tribes, were condsidered, and adopted. Mr. SEBASTIAN moved an~amendment, pro viding for the payment to Governor Gorman, of Minnesota, for services (while governor) in inves tigating certain charges against ex-governor Ram ^Messrs. BRIGHT, CHASE, and HUNTER, opposed the amendment, and Messrs. COOPER and SEBASTIAN supported it. It was then re jected?yeas 3, nays not counted. The bill was then postponed until to-morrow, and the Senate proceeded to the consideration of executive business, and shortly after adjourned. House of Representative*. Mr. HOUSTON, from the Committee of Ways and Means, reported a bill making appropriations for the service of the Post Office Department dur ing tbe fiscal year ending the 30th of June, 1855. Referred to the Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union. Mr. McDOUGAL reported a bill to refund to the State of California the expenses incurred for suppressing Indian aggressions in that State. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGES. Mr. PARKER reported a bill to regulate the salaries of the district judges of the United States; and on his motion it was referred to the Commit tee on the Judiciary. Mr. HOUSTON moved a reconsideration of ths vote just taken, with a view of having the bill sent to the Committee of tbe Whole on the state of the Union. More time was consumed iu avoiding giving bill* that direction than in considering and passing them. Mr LETCHER said that this bill was one of the most reasonable propositions which had como from any of the committees. For the last month committies had reported bills which were rushed through the House without affording an opportu nity for consideration or amendment. It was so with the clerk's salary bill, the other day. Mr. HOUSTON said, that the Committee on Ways and Means did not contemplate any such thing. Mr. LETCHER^ replied, no matter what was the instruction of the committee, it was put on its passage. Mr. ROBBINS said that ho was instructed by the Committee of Ways and Means to report a sub stitute for that bill, but, while so reporting, he had declared his preference for the original bill of the Senate. Mr. JONES, of Tennessee, said that only one or two of the members of that committee voted on that occasion for a suspension of the rules which required that bill, it containing an. appro priation, to be first considered in Committee of the Whole on the state ofthe Union. Mr. LETCHER remarked he did not charge any member with impropriety. If a gentleman should think that a measure ?s of sufficient importance to demand immediate action, it was for him to act accordingly. Other bills were reported and acted on without being referred to the Committee ofthe Whole on the state of the Union. Why make an exception to this bill ? Many of the district judges receive less pay than the third class clerks under the general government, and why object when a proposition is introduced to regulate their salaries? He moved to lay the motion to reconsider on the table. The motion was agreed to. GRANTS OF LANDS. The House resumed the consideration of the bill granting lands equally to the several States to aid in tbe construction of railroads, and for the support of schools. Mr. BENNETT (the measure having been in troduced by him) briefly explained and advocated its passage. Mr. DISNEY obtained the floor, but gave way for a motion that the House resolve itself into a Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union; which prevailed. DEFICIENCY BILL?NEBRASKA. The bill making appropriations for supplying deficiencies in the appropriations for the year ending June 30,18M, was taken up, Mr. Chahdlbk in the chair. Mr. HARRIS, of Mississippi, resumed his re marks from Monday last in opposition to the Nebraska and Kansas bill. He examined the pro visions of the measure in a legal point of view, and, with reference to the Missouri act of 1820, said it should be. repealed boldly, directly, or not at all. If Congress were not prepared to repeal it, let it stand. Mr. HEISTER proceeded to show that the pro position to repeal the Missouri act of 1820 was of recent origin. It was not contemplated by the compromise oi 1850, or, if contemplated, was con cealed. He avowed himself in favor of that com promise, but was opposed to any interpolations, such as was proposed by the Nebraska bill, which be generally opposed. Mr. TAYLOR, of Ohio, after a few preliminary remarks, to show that this was an administration measure and introduced to retrieve the fallen for tunes of the administration, argued against there peal of tbe Missouri act of 1820. If Congress should repeal it, they would set a precedent by which all other compromises would be repealed, and leave such action to a numerical majority, and not to the patriotism and good sense of the country. He explsined, at length, his objections to the Nebraaka-Kansas bill. Mr. BARRY obtained the floor, when on mo tion, the committee rose, And the House adjourned. Funeral of Hon. John Davie.?The funeral of the late Governor Davis, of Massachusetts, was celebrated in a solemn and impressive man ner at the 1st street Unitarian church, in Wor ceater, on Saturday laat. It was attended by Governor Washburn, Lieutenant-goveresr Plun kett, the council, Hon. Abbot Lawreace, Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, and other friends from every portion of the State. Governor Davis, wae a graduate of Yale col lege ofthe year 1812. The class numbered filty. Among them were Hon. George Bliss, of Spring Ml \ Rct. Calvin Collon, Dr. Theodore Dexter, Professor David Prentice. Judge Isaac Trimble pre.ton, and Professor Theodore Strong. Gov ernor Davie received the honorary degree of LL. D. at Harvard oollege ia 1834.
