Kuow-uothlngisiu and the Board of Alder men.?We have heretofore taken notice of pro ceedings in the Hoard of Aldermen, involving the question of Know-nothingism. On Monday night the subjcct was again a matter of debate in that chamber. It arose on the nomination, by the Mayor, of Andrew J. Lamer, to be the book keeper of the Corporation, vice James T. Clark* removed. This last named gentleman was the clerk to the late Mayor Maury, and waa ably qualified for the station, but, it so happens he is not a Know nothing. The "outside pressure'' has compelled his removal. Mr. Bayly moved that the nomination lie over for two week*, so that, meanwhile, the commit tee heretofore appointed to examine the state of the books of the corporation, could report on Mr. Larner's fitness for the station, he having been employed on that work. The books, lie was con vinced, were badly kept, and hence his desire for a postponement. The Rev. F. S. Evans rejoined, arguing that, as this nomination was that of the Mayor's own im mediate clerk, he should be permitted to make his own selection. Mr. Bayly retorted by saying that Mr. Laruer was the nominee of a prescriptive parly, rather than of the Mayor individually, Dr. Magruder handled the Know-nothings rather roughly. The debute was spirited and interesting, other gentlemen participating iu it; and filially Mr. Bayly's motion was agreed to by a vote of?yeas eight, nays three.

A bill, reported from the Committee on the Judi ciary, to provide a circuit court for the State of California, was taken up and discussed, and its further consideration postponed till to-morrow. The French spoliation bill, the special order, was taken up at the time appointed. It appropriates $5,000,000 to be distributed pro rata to such citizens of the United States, or their legal representatives, as had valid claims to indemnity upon the French Government, arising out ofillegal captures, deten tions, forcible seizures, illegal condemnation, and confiscations, committed prior to Ihe ratification of the convention between the United States ! und the French Republic, concluded on the 30ih September, 1800; bat it is provided that in all cases of transfer or assignment, except gilts or donations, no assignee shall be entitled to receive an amount beyond the consideration paid, und interest thereon; and these together are not to exceed the amount to whioli he would be enti tled if snch assignee, were the original holder. The amounts to be paid are to be ascertained by a commission, and to lie liquidated by United States five per cent, stock, redeemable at the pleasure of this government. The bill differs from that which was passed by the Senate a year ago, in this: that the House has limited the amount to be received by aii assignee, including interest on the consid eration paid, to the amount that would have been received under this bill by the original claimant; and the House has left the redemption of the stock at the pleasure of the government, instead of making it a twenty year's stock, as the Senate provided. Mr. WELLS opposed the bill. Mr. HUNTER advocated the necessity of amending the bill. He represented that publicity should be given to the proceedings of the commis sion that was to be appointed to adjudicate the claims, and make awards of the sums that should be paid. To secure that object he submitted an amendment. Mr. HAMLIN thought an amendment would endanger the bill. In u supplemental bill he might assent to such an amendment, but he recalled to (he recollection of senators the legislation hereto fore on these claims, aud expressed the hope that the friends of the measure would not now sanc tion any ameudment. ? Mr. CLAYTON followed on the fame side, and contended that the amendment was unnecessary. After a few words from Mr. SEWARD, the amendment was rejected by a majority of 2-1 nays to 22 yeas. The bill was finally passed?Yeas 2b, nays 17. And, after further proceedings, the Senate ad journed. House of Representatives. The Hou?e, by a vote of ayes 81, noes 42, laid on the table the motion maae yesterday, by Mr. Psckham, to reconsider the vote by which was passed the resolution directing I be Speaker to re voke the privilege under which William B. Chase holds a reporter's desk in the Hall, und that he be expelled from the Hall. The House resumed the consideration of the bill to rtmodel the diplomatic and consular system of the Uuited States Mr. PERKINS, of Louisiana, on a former day, explained the provisions relative to the diplomatic provisions, and he now proceeded to explain those with regard to the consular system pro posed by the bill. He said that in many cases foreigners act as our consuls abroad, men who have no knowledge of our institutions, often not speaking our language. They are clothed with power to tax American commerce and seamen, which is limited Simply by their own disc.etion, or the regulations of the country in which they severally reside. This has led to abuses which seem incredible. The bill embraces the existing laws in one code, so as to make the knowledge easy of access, and render plain provisions now obscure. The bill provides that no oue shall I>e a consul who is not a citizen of the Unitec States; and that he shall not receive remuneration for his services until he arrives at bis post, the pay to cease when he leaves it. The third reform contemplates a simplification of the grade of consular rank, and simply provides for consular and commercial agents. The fourth, that a consul at a large com mercial port shall devote his iime exclusively to hia official business; and the fifth, that he shall receive a salary rather than be dependent on the fluctuating fees of his office. Mr. CHANDLER commenced a speech in favor of the bill, but had not proceeded far when he yielded the floor to Mr. BRECKINRIDGE, on whose motion^the House resolved itself into the Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, Mr. Hendxicks in the chair, and proceeded to the consideration of the special order?the Senate bill to provide for the payment of such creditors of the late Re public of Texas aa are comprehended in the act of Coogresa of September 9, 1850. [The bill provides that in lieu of the $5,000,000 payable to the State of Texas, in five per cent, stock of the United States, by the act of September 9,1850, the Secretary of the Treasury is author ized to nay to the creditors of the late Republic who hold such l>onds, or other evidences of debt for which the revenues of that Republic were pledged, the sum of $8,500,000, to be apportioned among the said holders pro rata ; provided that the interest on the debt contracted in this act shall be determined by the existing laws of the Slate of Texas. The last section provides that the act shall not take effect until it shall be assented to by an act of the Legislature of Texas, nor until the Legisla ture of that State shnll pass an act withdrawing and abandoning all claims and demands ngainst the United States, growing out of Indian depreda tions prior to the admission of the said State into the Union.

Briccii* RiiKjr, Smtth, Bri.i., Jones, of Tennessee, and others participated ; but without coming to a con clusion on the subject, The committee rose and the House sdjonrned.
