visit to Washington was to arrange between the
Stale and the Government authorities with re
gard to the payment of expenses incurred in the

State militia called out last October. Ms Ex
cellency says that his interview with the military
authorities at Washington was most satisfactory,
and that a United &stye officer has already been
detailed and is now in Harrisburg, whose duty
it will be to examine into the expenses of the
late draft, which will be paid on being duly as
certained; and that the subject of paying the
State militia has been taken up at Washington,
and will soon be satisfactorily disposed of. Mr.
Freeland called up the bill to create a new county,
to be called Madison, out of parts of Venango,
Mercer and Crawford counties. During the dis
cussion on the propriety of considering this bill
the Speaker caused considerable sensation by
notifying, in a loud tone, all t. gentlemen not en
titled to admission to the floor to withdraw out
side the bar of this louse." This command
produced a restoration to order, and " borers "
became suddenly scarce. Mr. Smith (Chester)
said that. he had never before witnessed such im
pudence as had been exhibited here recently by
•• borers," who 'positively assailed and annoyed
members on the floor. (Sensation.) The time
was when these men were confined to the lobbies,
but now we find them within the very bar of the
House—by what authority he knew not—teasing
and annoying members in their seats. There was
something wteng about this bill; of that he was
convinced, from the begging of a borers " in its
favor. Mr. Brown (Warren) explained the ob
ject of the bill to be to enhance the value of cer
tain real estate investments by the erection of
this new county and a new county sent. The bill

the Czar, and driven, with many of his soldiers,
into the Austrian territory. Here be was held
for some lime as a prisoner, his followers being
placed under the surveillance of the police. The
ex-Dictator was finally surrendered to the Rus

Cracow. It was rumored in Paris that the Czar
Alexander had telegraphed to Napoleon promises
