The House passed the .Navy Appropri-1
lion (nil. They cut down [tie approprta-}
ions ahout S9()0,00{); provided for a
Tadtiul reduction of the number of
dicers to the numher that was in the;
erviee on the 1st January, 18-11.
The difference between the estimatos I
nd approjiriutions must either be taken '
irom the Homo Squadron or from some
ither branch of the service.
The bill ?u establish a Hoard to frame j
tiles and regulations for the naval ser-J

pproval. After some conversation, it
ras determined, with the assent of Mr.
A7ise, to pass this hill over, and lot the
Secretary of the Navy frame the neces- ,
arv rules for the approbation of Confess,
Washington, May 24.
The proceedings of both Houses, to- ;
av, were fraught with interest. The
peoehes were short and to the purpose.
Phere sooms to ho no necessity ofresortag
to (ho hour rule?for usage and con- J
enience have virtually established it.
The Apportionment bill was taken up!
n the Senate.
The House bill was referred to the!
Committee on the Judiciary, and by j
hem reported with amendments altering
lie whole cast of the hill.
Tne House provided, 1st. For a ratio
f 50,17U; and 2d. For the election of,
a embers, uniformly, in each State, hy
istricts. The Senate bill proposes three I
hings?lst. That the ratio shall he 50,. j
4)0; 2d. That each Slate having n frnc-1
ion exceeding the rnoietv of a ratio shall 4

nd 3d. That the States shall regulate!
lie mode of chousing their representative**,
? heretofore, hut that, when they choose
y distr eta, the districts shall lie composed
fconligums territory, and each district
hall contain a population equal to the |
alio, and shall choose one represent ai
Mr, Bkkriex, as Chairman of the
udieiary Committee, explained the Sen.
to amendments, lie said he was him. j
elfin favor of a higher ratio than was j
reposed, bur it was considered that the
object was one relating to the organiza-!
ion of the other House, and that their
pinion might, therefore, to prevail.? '
Jesides, lie did not think that the House ,
/mild accede to a proposition for a higher
alio. The ratio proposed by the commit- j
ec was, therefore, nearly the same as
hat hy the Mouse. The committee, j
owever, found that this ratio would do 1
ljilstice to some of the States, and par- j
icularly to the Southern States. Thir- j
:en of the States would ho left with!
actions exceeding a moiety of the ratio i
'hey, therefore, proposed that the frnc- i
ons exceeding a nioictv of the ratio be '
^ - . . i
^presented. In regard to the remaining1
inemlment, the Senate could not concur j
i the proposition of the House bill to j
tajaire the States to adopt the district I
vstcin. They left it optional with the ,
dates. The committee, he said, were ,
nprcssed with the danger which would j
suit from the combination of the larger
tales to engross the power of the govern- j
lent, hut the best way to avoid this would i
e to leave the subject to the discretion
f the States.
Mr. Walker spoke, vehemently, against
lie ratio of the House bill, which was, he
;<icl, unjust and iniquitous towards the j
louth and particularly towards his Stale.
'he South, with only a third of the repmentation,
was made to bear the greater j
ortion of the fractional loss, lour
nail contiguous ootton growing States?
.lafrnma, Louisiana* Mississippi and j
.ikansas, had to hear a fractional loss of)
11,000?rone third of tSic whole loss.? j
'he State of Mississippi, by the time
hut Congress assembled under this nportionment,
in ISd-'i, would be entitled 1
> two more representatives than the
[ouse hill allowed her.
Mr, Walker proposed that the Senate
inuld first act on the *2 1 amendment
roviding for tho representation of fr;\c- !
pnsrr-=hecauso, upon the adoption or re-,
iction of that, would d^pond tfie vptes of!
lanv upon given ratio.

vidual responsibility.
Mr, Ravard contender! for a House of
100 or at farthest 4J0't member*. He
said the Senate could better judge than
the House of the propriety of any ratio?
for their judgment was disinterested and
not aflected hv the local and personal in
tercsts wh.ch had weight with the House.
At n proper time lie should move to adopt
a ratio of 74,000, which would give a
House of 201 members.
The Senate determined to adopt Mr.
Walker's proposition, and to take loo
question first on the fractional rcpresentio
i. After n long debate, the Somite
adjourned without taking tho question.
The House went into Cominitteo on the
Nuvu! appropriation bill.
This bill appropriates for pnv of officers,
support ot'army, &c., about six and
a quarter millions; aud a hundred and
seventy-thousand dollars for the military
academy. The increase is something
like five or six hundred thousand dollars
bevond the same app-opriations in 1840.
A motion was made to reduce the whole
appropriation fur tho army to the standard
of ?which was about otic half
of the present expense.
This was ably debated the whole day.
No decision was reached. The discussion
will he continued some days. The
friends of the army are unwilling to see
it cut down?but go it must. The money
was a still greater favorite than the
army, and had warmer friends in the
House, but that has been crippled by the
reformers. The friends of the navy unite
with the opponents of the army to overthrow
that arm of defence, Mr. Tillmore,
in resisting tho amendment, ac*
cu-od members of being influenced by
sp'tlti, to oppose (lie army because the navy
had suffered and urged that it was not
a good reason for crippling one arm that
another had been paralyzed.
The reader may remember that the
Dowager Countess of Westmoreland was
one of the titled personages who visited
the United States last summer. A curious
anpedote is related of her marriage.
She was onlv daughter of the eminent
and immensely wealthy banker Child,
who flourished in London about the time
of the French Revolution. When lie
died, he made a will leaving all his property
to his daughter, on condition that if
.-he married she should marry a mechanic,
(ho commenced life himself as a brewer)
who had served a regular apprenticeship
of seven years at his trade. If she married
any other person, the estate was to
alienate from her and her heirs. The
then young Karl of Westmoreland met
her by chance at a bill given on some
public occasion by the Lord Mayor. He
resolved, if she was willing, to marry hor
?:?nd on hor consenting in u?11 n
years, he hound himself apprentice Jo a
Mr. Pollock, a highly respectable waddier
in PiccaddiHy, and actually learned the
trade. He served his seven years and exhibited
a saddle which he made to the entire
satisfaction of the executors under the will,
and gave title for fortune. iMiss Child be.
came Duch'-g s, and the mechanic's apprentice
one of the wealthiest Earls of England.?
After all, he served only half as long as poor
Jacob?vUto gave seven years of servitude
for Rachel and seven more for Leah?and did
not get so much cash as his Lordship by a
pretty considerable difference.

A Loves Disappointed.?Tlie Pittsbur<;
Chronicle states that a young lady
of Alleghany city was to have been married
to a voting man of Pittsburg on Saturday
night last, with the approbation of
her parents; but when the hour drew
nigh, decked in her bridal robes, she left
her father's house in order, if possible, to
avoid the tying of the silken knot, which,
in this case, was to bind at least one unwitting
heart, and proceeded to the residence
of a friend, whore she met a young
gentleman who had long been enamored
of her, and in a few minutes matters
were arranged between them, and a clergyman
was sent for, and without further
delay they were made man and wife.
