The concurrent resolution was referred to the committee ou foreign rela tions. Senator Ransom trim the committee on prl ,ate laud claims, reported favorably Senator Ed munds' bill to give to the United States courts tlie power ot ascertaing and settling private tand claims within the limits of the territory derived by the United States from the republic of Mexico and now embraced within the territories of New Mexico, Wyoming, Arizona or Utah, or within the state of Nevada or Colorado, or by virtue of such law till incomplete Spanish or Mexican grants, con cession, warrant or survey, as the United states are bound to recognize and conllrni by virtue of tlie treaties of cession of said country by Mexico to the United States, which, at the date of the parage ol tlie act, have not. been conllrmed by act of congress or otherwise fully decided.

HOUSE The messages from the president yesterday presented lo the senate were today submitted to tlie house and appropriately referred. Mr, Colder, of Massachusetts, from Ihe com nillteeon the Judiciary, reported a hill extendiu the Jurisdiction of the court of claims f r the use ol patents and patented Inventions agahisdjlhe United stales; house calendar. In the morning hour Mr. Belmont, of New York, called up the joint resolution providing an indemnity to certain Chinese subjects for losses sustained within tne jurisdiction of the United tates. The resolution was considered in tlie comml'.tee of tlie whole. fendlnii discussion the morning hour expired, tlie committee rose and tlie house again went iniocuinniittee, Mr. Springer, of Illinois, In the chair, on the army appropriation bi 1. Mr. Itockwcll, ol Massachusetts, moved to inreiis f torn j.ioo.ooo to 4i;o,ooj the appropria tion for the manufacture of anus ut the Spring field armory. Mr. Long, of JIassiehtisetts, supported the amendment. Small arms were needed, there uetngouly a surplus of 160KX) governmo it rifles In the country, while the secretary of war had stated that the suplus should never be allowed to fall below fluo.oco. This was not a good time to strike at tlie interests of skilled lauor. it was hot adedrablethingto passajbill i hat was going to turn out one-lourth of the skilled laborers at springtleld, where there was no need for work. Mr. Uragg, of Wisconsin, suggested that the amendment might have been offered, because Sprmgtield happened to be in the district of tiie gentleman from Massachusetts. There was no prospect o! lorelgn war, and if t e govern ment w'as to manufacture muskets for tlie pur pose of supporting a government that was pinned together wltu cartridges and bayonets, the ilrst match would set lire Co it. Mr. Kockwell repelled the Insinuation that he had been Impelled to offer the amendment bv the fact that the Springtleld armory was in Ins district. Ordinary courtesy fell as coldly on the gentleman's (Mr. uragg'B) heart as icy waves ou u wiuu swept snore. Tne motion was agreed to. sc to 84. ihe committee rose. The house by a vote of, yeas las, nays iou, refused to agree to the .Sprlnglieid armory amendment, thus reversing me action ot tne committee, and the bin was pjssed. Mr, liruinm. of Fennsvlvanla. rising to a oues- tiun of privilege, staled that tlie Kecord was in correct this morning' That it made Mr. Wheel er, of Alabama use the language yesterday, "the conspirator Kd win M. Stanton," while tlie lan guage employed had been "tlie arch conspirator lid win M. staulou." Mr. Haniniand, of Georgia, disclaimed any kuowledgco! the facts, but added sarcastically that If the facts were as stated by the gentleman from Pennsylvania a correction of, the record should be made. It was very im portant that the adjective should be in. Some gentlemen did not object to being called a liar who, It called a damned liar, wouie get very mad. Mr. Morrison, Illinois, did not see that any question of privilege was involved. His recollection was that ihe gentleman from Alabama did use the word "arch." It was a very coininuu custom lo raise Hie record, auu when a gentleman found that he had slopped over, to take out his language. Toe gentleman from Alabama might Willi entire propriety have erased tlie word conspirator alsu. It would not have hiu an) thing or a ybody. suggested Mr. Spiinger, of Illinois "If some of the gentlemen on the other side had done tlie same tiling retorted Mr. Heed, it would have been better lor their history .

I have been using Allcock's I'orous Plasters on my own person and in my family for the last thirty years. I deem it a matter of duty to bear pub lic testimony to their exceeding use fulness as an external remedy. Placed upon the pit of the stomach, they warm and tone the digestive organs. On the small of the back, they give vigor to the nervous system, and act as a wonderful diuretic. 1 think in all cases of dyspepsia tbey should be worn both on the back and on the pit of the stomach.
