WARBIGTON, June 16.
Mr. Howe, (Wis ,) from the committee of
Cattleman on the bill making appropriations
for certain boundaries, made a report.
The Vice President called the attention of the
Senate to the fact that the committee of con
ference bad altered the text of the bill. :Strict
perliamentary rule required that the committee
of conference can only determine ou the dis
*peeing votes'of the two Houses. If such rule
was allowed, it might lead to very bad results
on Important bills, such as appropriation bills.
Mr. FOOT'S, (Vt.,) said that no parliamentary
law was better settled than that the jurisdiction
of• the committee of conference was limited en
tinaly to the disagreeing votes, and they could
not put in new matter in a bill.
Mr. Powers, (Ky.,) moved to ' , commit the
bill to the committee of conference.
_Mx. Howe, (Miss.,) thought there was no de
finite law on this subject, and thought there
were numerous precedents for such a muse.
Mr. Taman= thought this a serious natter,
and he would never consent to establish such a
precedent as allowing the committee of confer
ence to legislate on new matters in this way.
Such a practice would be destructive to all
good legislation, and make the Senate simply
a body with the veto power over legialatiou
done by the committee of conference.
At one o'clock the naval appropriatiqn bill
was taken up. The question being oa the
Senate concurring in the amendment Offered
by Mr. WILSON, (Mass.,) that no person held to
service or labor, commonly (stied slaves, be
employed in the navy yards, dock yards, etc.,
it was rejected.

when he took possession of the White House.
This White House is spoken of in the newspa
pers as though it was a large house, somewhat
of the proportion of the Presidential mansion.
It is a small house compared with the White
House in this city. It contains only six rooms,
and they are of moderate size. It is in a beau
tiful location on the bank of the Pamnnkey
river, and is the place where Washington first
met his wife, and where he courted and married
her. The property is now owned, he believed,
by a grandson of Mrs. Washington, the son of
Out of a delicate regard for the memory of
Washington, which he, Mr. Dunn, treasure the
country would approve, Gen. McClellan had
placed a guard around the house to protect it
and the yard from injury.
Mr. Dorm replied he did not. It was a very
place for the General's headquarters, but he
would nut use it, and had his tents pitched out
in the ploughed field and in the hot sun. He
did not approve the resolution, but thought it
