Mr. STEMS, (Pit.,) from the Committee on
Ways end Means, reported a bill for the support
of the West Point Military Academy.
On his motion the Coroniittee obtained leave
to sit during the sessions of the House.
He took occasion to explain the reason why
the appropriation blllB'were not sooner report
ed, adding that he had been informed that. nu-:
merous libelling letter Writers and journals had
been finding - fault with thaCcunmittee for not
reporting an equitabi - 4 1irer Commit
tee, however, -k.re gat erliig farts, and work
for hours after' attending to their business in
!his hall. He desired to say that the criticiatos
and libels of the press would not make them
one minute faster than a due regard to the pub
lic interest would permit.
The House resumed the considerations of the
fortification bill in , Committee of the Whole on
the state of the Union.
During the debate on amendments, Mr. Aa-
NOLD (Illinois) said it would be better to act on
the bill specifically, the items being based on
official estimate. it was not to be supposed
that this bill embraced all the fortifications
necessary •to • the. Atlantic coast and Western
bikes, but the select committee have the sub
ject under consideration. and will at an early
day report the result of their deliberations:'
Mr. CRMIINDEN (Ky.) suggested that we have
not money enough to carry on the war within
our borders. To this all our energies should
be directed., It was no time to enter into ex
pensive precautionary measures against a for
eign war, which he hoped was far distant. Let
ns defend the Government, and when peace is
restored to the country, we can provide against
the dangers of foreign war.
Mr. Warcurr, (Pa.,) agreed with Mr. Critten
den. There should be no new forts commenced
unless there was absolute and overruling ne
cessity for them. He had been informed that
the bill appropriated ; between five and six mil
lions of dollars— In order to , afford time for
exdniinatioir into some of the items, he ineffec
tually sought a postponement of its considera
• All the amendments were voted down. The
Committee then rose, when the bill as origi
nally'roported was passed by the House.
Mr, Hurray, (Intr„) from the Committee on
Army Contracts, reported a resolution wfileb
was adopted, calling on the Secretary of War
to communicate' to the Committee a copy 'of
the contracts for • the',purchase of horses for
Colonel 'William's regiment of cavalry now In
Ma. Brae, (N. Y.,) of the same committee
reported dreeolutien that they inquire into the
several orders or contract; rattier 60,000 and
another for 25,000 Enfield 'Riffles ; whether
thesecont'racts have been' extended or annull

gressman from Kentucky, 9c.
Mr. Stearns, a distiller of Richmond, Va , is
making about 8.1,000 a day, clear profit, on
whisky, and could make $5,000 if he would ex
ert himself. The demand for whisky is BQ great,
that every gallon is sold as soon as it is made. So says
the correspondent of the Charleston Mercury.

Yesterday developed no new feature in the
Federal programme on the coast. Their ves
sels of war continue to pop iuto our inlets, oc
casionally favoring our batteries or fleet with a
shot, and then popping out again. They seem
determined to learn the geography of our
coast, with . a view to future operations. We
would give them every facility in pursuit of
that knowledge, and, indeed, do almost any
thing else to induce them to laid. We are
heartily tired of their cowardly prowling
around, like a thief reconnoiteriug a hen-roost.
Perhaps we may have some more daring act to
record in the course of the week ; may be an
attack in earnest, or their summary evacua
tion of our coast —Savannah liqmblican, De
This invention consists of a locomotive capa
ble of running on common roads, which super
sedes horse•pow, r in all draft operations, and
is adapted to either land or water. To. this is
attached one or more 'air cannons, wirich in
view of the present scarcity of powder, is a
_great desidexatnm, as air can be made more
effective than powder, being liable to compres
sion to many thousand times less than its bk.
These cannon will also have th 3 following
qualities to recommend them, viz: no report,
little if any concussion, no heating, and no
smoke, which proves their great availability
whether placed on board of gun boats. or war
ships, or used on laud for river protection,
where it would be most serviceable. Along
the banks of the Mississippi the. levee'', would
protect the lower part of the machine, little
the upper is secured by its own inclined plappe.
The cannon, being breech-loading, is loaded
with great ease and speed; and by being re
moved from the machine, the latter can be
applied to making ditches, throwing up the
embankments, and can also be used as a fire
In the open field it may well be called a

This is a Louisianainvention, and we under
stand that the inventor § Mr. Henry Cowing, is
about to submit it to the Legislature, when we
hope to see it r e ceive that attention which all
such contrivances, caloulated to strengthen
our defenses, deserve.—Beilon Rouge Advocate,
General BueH's. Forces.
The forces under command of General Buell,
which are destined to play so conspicuous a
part in the pending conflict, are athong the
best drilled and equipped in the service. As
all things are about ready, an advance is near
at hand. It is probable that Bowling Green
and Columbus will be invested simultaneously.
The strength of the Rebels, at the two points
named, cannot be ascertained with certainty,
but it is probable that there ate 45,000 men
under Buckner, and 80,000 under Gen. Polk.
There can be •no question but our forces, if
proptuly managed, are amply sufficient to re
duce both place3 '
and completely disperse or
capture the rebel armies. The correspondent
of a New York paper gives the following as
the strength of General Buell's army:

Making an aggregate of about 100,000 in
fantry, 11,000 cavalry and 3,000 artillerists,
with over 100 grins.
Of these 114,000 men, about 75,000 have
b een pronounced fit for the field, and formed
into brigades and divisions, including about
68,000 infantry, 5,000 cavalry, and 2,500 artil
lerists. Of the remaining 39,000, probably
5,000 will yet be added to one or more of the
divisions, and the balance form a reserve.
These are all Western troops, and, with the
exception of those from the cities, phriectly
familiar with the use of the rifle, and are men
oodesperate courage. They will, without
übt,,gitie a good account of themselves in
any position in which they may be placed ;
and their leaders, we believe, are men of dis
