Poiomae Batteries.
The ateamtug Leslie went down to Qnantico
Creek yesterday, towing a large scow with
shears and machinery for removing the rebel
batteries. A large aumber - of shells have been
found in the rebel magazine. They were neatly
packed in fine sea weed, which is said to be an
excellent plan to keep the powder dry and pre
vent premature explosion.
XXXVIEth Congress--First Session.
Mr. DAVIsi(Ky) asked that the case of Mr,
Powell be Wien tin, as the Kentucky f..egisla•
'tare wet e tifiseasion, and would like to have the
case settled. He subsequently withdrew the
Mr. Diktat (Coon.) 'offered- a reistdotkiii that
the Committee on Naval Affairs be instructed
to inquire what,was necessary, done in re
gard to jOhn Davis,whose distinguished bravery
had been brought to the notice of the Govern-
Mem by the report of Conimodore Dupont.—
Mr. KIIIVIDT, (Md.,) offered a resolution that
the Secretary of the Navy inform the Senate by
what law the naval academy had been remov
bd to Newport, Rhode Island, and thei reasons
for such removal, and whether such reasons
still exist. . .
The resolution expressing the thanks of Con
gress to Capt. A. H. Foote and the officers and
men of the western flotilla, was taken up.
Mr. Games, (Iowa) said that he felt his
duty and pleasure to call attention to the ex
ploits of this arm of thenavy in the western
waters. In May last commander John Rogers
was sent to Cincinnati to prepare gunboats for
the operations in the western waters.: The
Taylor, Lexington and Conestoga were built,
but when they firstwent to Cairo were laughed
at.- 3Sioce that' no rebel craft has been above
ColUmbus. Afterwards in SepteMber; Capt.
Foote was sent to take the place of Com.
Rogers and charge of the gunboats, partly
iron-elad, St. Louis, Carondolet, Pittsburg,
Essex and Mound City, of thirteen guns each.
He said that so far asrhe could learn the plan
of turning the enemy's flank by going up the
Tennessee and Cumberland rivers, originated
with Capt Foote.
• He referred at some length to the triumph
Of the gunboats at Fort Henry and
and attributed the - eysnitatibii of 'Cffiumtrus 'to
the :influence of :the knit's:ite . and the mortar
fleet. He contended-that thisoountry wasdes-'
tined, to be a great maritime country and the
navy must be the right arm of our defence.
He referred to-the-gallant-efforts of the navy
elsewhere nailer Commodores Dupont and
Goldeborough..= He said that the , reisedt
at Hampton Roads demonstrated that ordinary
wooden boats were no defence against:iron
boats, and no stone fortress has any obstacle
to the entrance of Leon:boats in any harbor.
He referred lifter - die bfi idgif eulogy to - Lieut.
Worden.and t e Kriason.and to, the latosnted
deadinthe Cihkoreisend. Ounibeilind, • The
resolution was passed.
The retiblutiOti of tlittaks to LIME' **den
and the officers and sailors of the Monitor was
then taken up and passed:
Mr. Duero;,-(1C ri•ljcilnt rasa'
don, which was passed, tendering ; the thanks of
Congress'io . Genitil'Onritsiinfthe officers and
men, under him for the late brilliant victory in
Arkansas, and sincerely sympathising with the
lenitives' and friends of the officers and soldiers
'of the army who so gallantly and bravely fell
at Tea Ridge.
The House in committee reamed the con
sideratton of the tax bilL
Mr. BENIERDSON, (111.,) moved' a» amend
ment that tio - per centum of the .ravenne -de
'rived from the bill shall be set apart for the
purpose of buying or obtaining by treaty, terri
tory outside of the limits of the United States,
as which to colonise free blacks, and for pay
ment of eXpenses of their transpoititiOn thither.
Mr. Morriga, (Vt.,) raised a. point of order
that this amendment is not germane to the
first section of the bill which Proildes for the
appointment of officers necessary to carry it
into effect.' • Tbe 'chairman,sustained the ob
jection,'atsthe same timesatinethrit thridebefe
must be cenfined to the special order.
Mr. Iricaraansort said the gentleman from
Kentucky; (Mr. Wadsworth,) and Pennsylvania,
(Mr. Stevens,) seemed to express some fears
because they have not sufficient confidence in
the President that the nioney„ propoesd to be
raised will not be properly appropriated, but
the_chief executive bad, in his opinion, bAt• his
publiriacti; shintra'a ditMosititrii to ± abideby the
law and uphold the constitution. While he
differe& frinir ;the President as to the - best mode
of doing other things; -hi in this , 'accorded tit
the President a perfect honesty of purpose.
Mr. STEVENS, (Pa.,) rose to a point of order,
viz., that apts of the administration are not
pertinent to thiribill: Thrichaltarkz:tebrarked
thatthe gentlienitalithilliihniehatrnet - yet
proeeeded far enough to enable him to decide
on lb° relevancy of his remarks.
Mr. BIOILAXDSON exproiseed his surprise that
Mr. Stevens should now endeavor to restrain
debate. when he lied permitted so wide a range
yesterday. ' •
Mr. Bums • reminded the gentleman that
he aid endeavor to confine the debate pastel',
day to the merits of the bill.
Mr. Itionkunsou, resuming; said that the
gentleman from Ohio, (Mr. Bingbam,) on the
other side, told a yesterday that the preserva
tion of the Conatitution and the Union was
SecondarY with them, the primary object with
them being the destruction of slavery.
Mr. &num, with no - disrespect to Mr. Rich
ardson, called him to order for this remark, as
beiiig Inv - levant to the bill.
M. RICHARDSON desired to 'say to his friends
on the other sitheof the 'House, that the gen
'ileman from Kentucky,- (Mr. Wadsworth,)
yesterday was subject to - similar 'interruptions.
The gentleman froth Ohico,'(dr. Bingham,)
however, wag nqt so 'annoyed. He had no de
sire to Meow - 4 the first section of the bill, but
he served a notice on his Republican friends
that he would bring 'theta from day to day to
the strict line of debate, and he would make
thern toe it every hour. -
Mr. Rios sansos then resumed his seat. The
first seCtioa was amended, by giving the com
missioner of internal revenue the franking
