C , now known a one of the most successful farmers of Eastern Vir ginia, came into possession of his fine es tate when iie was a young man, at a time when the property bore quite a bad repn tatiort. The quality of the land was ac knowledged to be excellent, and the force of laboring hands umply Miflicieut to (ill it ; hut somehow the whole of the pro duce had lecii enleii up yenr after year, and far from ieldirg the former owner a ny considerable income, (tie estate at the tune of hit decease, was in a somewhat embarrassed condition.

Mr. Leslie, from the committee on the Judictarv.to which was referred the peti tion of Edward Bate and oilier, pr ing the repeal of the law . prohibiting slaves, free negroes, Sic., from assembling frlh purpose of , education, &,. without the presence of some white person or magis trate, reported a bill in conformity w ith said prayer. . . ., , - , .... , , ( ,.. The questicn being nri agreeing to h report, Mr. Jones, of F., spoke gaintt Unavv'd by influence, unlmbed the seme. The law, as it now stood, was the result of a petition from St. Louis. It was now proposed by the citizens of thai place (o repeal a law which was peti tioned for two years ngo. He could see no good reason for a change of the pres ent law. Mr. Edwards moved to lay the report and the accompanying bill on the table, until the 4:h of July next. He said he had us much sympathy for slaves as any man as much as any man ought to have. But he objected lo the privileges which the bill proposed to extend to the free ne groes. Their example had n pernicious influence -on slaves, and so far as his ob servations w ent, assemblages of negroes were productive ol no good, and were generally intended for no useful or prolil uble purpose. He thought such privile ges oti'.'ht not lo be granted he was not willing to encourage t lie efforts that were beiiifr uiade to break down the institution of slavery, by an officious intermeddling in (he relations of master and slave. Mr. Lesl ie expressed himself in favor of the bill repor'ed by the committee, Biid spoke in defence ir the objects sought lo be accomplished by the petitioners. Mr. Lowe thouu'ht ihe reasoning of Ihe gentleman from St. Louis was more spe cious than solid. He was in favor of the law as it now stood, and hoped that the re port would be disagreed lo. Any change of the present law would he higfdy inex pedient, as it infill be regarded as an en couragement lo the disposition to interfere vv ith the relations f piaster and sl.iv e. Mr. Reed was disposed lo consider ihe subject embraced in the report, and he would therefore inov e to lay the report on ihe (able until Monday next. At pres ent he was inclined to oppose the bill, bul he desired time to consider. Mr. Edwards felt every disposition lo eralify the wishes of the gentleman from C.i!!uwiiy, and he took occasion to say that he was not actuated by any want of re spect Ibr ihe Judiciary committee, lie said he was opposed in principle to en eotirnpini; 1 tie system of free negro school proposed by the bill. lie referred lo the infiueiites which might heexerled by the free m groes if l!uy were learned (o read and w riie. They would excite insubor dination and insurrection among slaves, a result w hich he could not contemplate without horror. Mr. Jones, of C, wauled lime for con sideration. It wi.s necessary for somJ tiling lo be done, and as there was diffi culty in I he subject, he pteferred time lo consider. Mr. Jackson said there was no diversi ty of opinion among his constituents on ihe subject embraced in ihe bill. He was prepared in volo tor lis indeliiiile post ponement. He thought the gentleman Iroin Cooper took a wrong view of the present law. 1 here was no hardship iu it every master permitted his slaves to attend worship at their pleasure, and ihere w as no hindrance to a free and unrestrain ed exercise of the high priv ilege of wor shipping Almighty Cod according to the dictates of eonscience. For one, his mind was made up, und it was his firm deter mination lo oppose all allempts lo disturb the rights of slaveholders. He was pre pared to vole for a modification of the pre sent law, so as lo prevent negroes from congregating for any purpsse without the presence of some while person. He be lieved the liberality id" the present law had been much abused, lie spoke at length and w ith earnestness on the subiuct mailer of the bill. : Mr, Edwards withdrew his motion. when, On motion of Mr, Abernathy, the re port, together wi:h the bill was laid on the table until Monday next. Mr. Aberiialhy submitted a resolution, requiring Ihe committee of Vy und Means to report as lo the expediency of repealing certain provisions of (he groce ry nod main shop law, which was adoiit- ,.- Mr. Gate wood introduced a bill for the relief of John VV William, ol" Henry county; read and referred.

Mr. Jones, of N., submilted a resolu tion to re-commit ihe whole ul jeel to the committee on Elections. Mr. tJatcvvooil moved to lay the reso lution on the table. Mr. Jones, of Newton.' nked and ob tained leave to speak lo die motion. He spoke al length of the feeling manifested against him by the committee and others, and said there were those in and atxjut the Senate who were prowling like wolves upon his (rack. He evinced much feel ing mid excitement, staling thst he fell it lo be his duty tu hear much in silence. He replied at length to the argument of ivir. r.ition. The resolution was then laid on ?)! ta ble, when Mr. Lovve, submitted a resolu tion for the production of all the testimo ny offered by Col. Jones, which was re jected by the committee. Mr. Ellison made a statement explana tory of the reasons why the committee had rejected certain testimony, when he was interrupted by Mr. Wells, who said that he objected to a verbal statement as irreg blir.
