On motion of Mt. Johnson, of Louisi* ana, the Senate took up the bill for the better organization of the District Court of1 the United States, vtithin | the state of Louisiana; (to divide the i state into two districts;) and after some ! remarks by Mr. J. explanatory of the object and the expediency of the pro posed alteration, the bill was laid od the table. v Mr. Lowrie laid before the Senate a resolution of the Legislature of Pa. in relation to the militia fines assessed in that state; which was read and ordered to lie on the table. J Mr. Van Buren laid before the Se ' nate a resolution of the Legislature of ' New York, instruoting the Senators from that state to call the attention of thegener&l government to the great im portance of improving the navigation of the Hudson river; which resolution was read and refered to the committee on Roada and Canals. The Senate then resumed, in commit tee of whole, Mv Holmes, of Maine, in the chair, the coneioe ration of the bill prescribing the mode of commencing, prosecuting, and deciding controver sies between states. The debate was renewed on this bill and continued with much earnestness more than three hours. Mr. Dickerson, of New Jersey, ad dressed the senate at much length, to sustain the expediency of passing the bill, and in reply to the argument de livered by Mr. Van Buren yesterday, a gainst it. Mr. King, of New York, spoke at considerable length to shew that the bill was unnecessary, inexpedient, and ought not to pass; - Mr. Southard replied, and urged a* gain the necessity and the expediency of this measure, to terminate the dis putes which subsisted between several of the states, relative to the boundary, Mr. Van Buren, also, again spoke in support of the ground taken by himself yesterday, and by his colleague, Mr. King, to day. The debate on the part of all these gentlemen referred a good deal to the nature of the controversy existing be tween the states of New York and New Jersey; and they severally rejoined in the discussion more than once Mr. Barbour, and Mr. Macon, re* specti vely, without going into the merit* of any particular controversy submit* ted their reasons for disapproving the bill, arguing, chiefly, that such a bill ought not to pass without some appa rent necessity, and as its passage did not appear indispensable, it would be impolitic, as consequences might grow out of it of much political inconveni ence, dec. Mr. Dickerson, in conclusion, ob« served that, although no vote had been taken, yet he had ascertained the opin* ions of a number of the members on it • and as the objection seemed to be the general nature of the bill, he would move an amendment, embracing the existing cases of dispute between New York and New Jersey, and New Jer sey and Delaware; if these cases were provided for, they wbuld obtain all they desired. He would at present, howev er, move to postpone the bill until to morrow, and it was postponed accor dii ; engrossed bill to provide for as* certaining claims and titles to lands in the territory of Florida, was read * third time, passed, and sent to the oth er house for concurrence.' The bill from the other House, t& revive and continue in force, an act, d*> daring the assent of CoBgress to cer tain acts ef the state of Maryland and Georgia, was also read the third time and passed. The bill from the house of Repre sentatives to authorise the Secretary of the Treasury to exchange a stock bearing five per cent, for stocks bear ing an interest of six and seven per cent, was read a third time and passed by yeas and nays—36 yeas, £ nays. The nays were Mr. 3foc<m, and Mr. Seymour. The Senate then went into the con sideration of Executive business; after which they Adjourned. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Mr. Bateman, from the committee tut the Post Office and Post Roads, to whom was referred a bill from the Se nate for the relief of Thomas W. Bicot, reported the same without amendment; and ihp same was referred t* a eem« mittee of the whole. \ J
