MX, (Pa.,) from the _Committee on
Ways.4nd Means, reported a bill 'for the support
of the 'West Point Military Academy.
OnAlikmotion the Committee obtained leate
to sit_during the sessiona•of the Horse. .k t
Hjtook occasion to , explain the reason Ai .

tee, however, are-.gathering . -facts, and work
for hours after attending to their brishtess'in
this hall. He desired to say that the criticisms
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
lakes, but the select committee have the sub
ject under consideration, and will at an early
day report the result of their deliberations.
Mr. CVITENDER (Ky.) suggested that we have
not money enough to carry on the war Witt in
our borders. To this all our energies should.
be directed. It was no time to enter into ex
pensive preeantionary measures against a for
eign war, which he hoped was far distant. Let
us defend the Government, and when peace is
restored to the country, we can provide against
the dangers of foreign war.
Mr. Watairr, (Pa.,) agreed with Mr. Critten
den. There ehould 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
examination 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 reported was passed by the House.
Mr. Homtes, (Ind.,) from the Committee on
Army Contracts, reported a resolution which
wail adopted, calling on the Secretary of rWar
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. &TULA (N. Y.,) of the same committee
reported a resolution that they inquire into the
several orders or contracts, one for 60,000 and
another for 25.000 Enfield &files ; whether
these contracts have been extended or annull
ed ; whether they: have been sold or offers made
-to sell them etc.
Holum adjourned till Monday.

that it is a" trick to which McClellan looks for

Yesterday developed no new feature in the
Federal programme on the coast. Their ves
sels of war continue to pup into our inlets, oc
casionally favoring our batteries or fle4 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 shy
thing else to induce them to land. We are
heartily tired of their cowardly prowling
around, like a thief reconnoitering a hen-roost.

General Buell* Forces.
The forces under command of General Buell,
which are destined to play so conspicuous a
part in the pending conflict, are a_uong the
best drilled and equipped in the service. As
all things are about ready, an advance is near
at band. 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 are. 45,000 men
under Buckner, and 30,000 under Gen. Polk.
There can be no question but our forces, if
properly managed, are amply sufficient to re
duce both placer, and completely disperse or
capturerthe rebel armies. The correspondent
of a New York paper gives the following as
the strength of General Buell's army:

Total number of batteries.
Making an aggregate of about 100,000 in

with over 100 guns.
Of these 114,000 men,

been pronounced fit for the field, and formed
into brigades and divisions, including' about
68,000 infantry, 6,000 cavalry, and 2,600 artil
lerists. Of the remaining 39,000, probably
6,000 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
etception of those from the cities, perfectly
familiar with the use of the rifle, and are men
of desperate courage. They will, without
doubt, give a good account of themselves in
any position in which they. may be placed ;
and their leaders, we believe, are men of dim-
Cretiou and experience.
