The Senate met at XJ o’clock, yesterday, and
a bill supplementary to the Genera! Land
Bounty bill, correcting an oversight, was pass
ed, an i the rules suspended, to permit its being
sent to the House.
A resolution was reported from the Commit
tee on Mi itary Affairs, requesting the President
to submit to a Board of Army officers, the ex
pediency of establishing new grades of officers,
ami defining duties of officers in civil emer
gencies. Adopted.
A joint resolut on was passed suspending the
rules so as to permit the Civil an i Diplomatic
bill to he sent to the Piesident on the last day
of the session; also, the Indian Appropriation
bill: and the Senate then went into Kxecutive
session.
idle House agreed to the suspension of the ;
rules for the purpose of sending the latter two
bill* to the President.
While the yeas and nays were being called
on the suplementary bill to the land bounty bid,
the hour of lvi arrived, and the speaker struck
h s hammer, and announced that according to
Joint Resolution, the House was ajourned smc
die.
The doors of the Senate weie opened at 12.
and the Senate adjourned sine (he. alter a
word or two from the Pi evident ol the Sen
ate, congratulating that body on the reMi't
of their labor, and expressing t le hope that
the ttfasuies they had passed would secure
the qu et a«»d welfare of the country
Peruvian Guano.
On Thursday a communication from the De
partment of State was laid before tilt* t . S. j
Senate, transmitting further inioimaiion upon
the subject, of the trade in guano between Pe
luand he l iiited States m compliance with |
a resolution ol the 10th of June last.
A letter Hem the American Legation at Lima,

eign debt. 1 hat the sales are made exclusively .
on account ot the Government, and in Us! amount
at present t<> nearly thiee million" of dollar? an
nually, about one-thiid of which is dear protit
to the State. The houseof Gibbs&Co , of Lon
don. has made frequent loans t> Pern, based ,
upon the consignment ol the guano; aim by a re- j
