‘The senate were engaged the whole of
this day in an animated discussion on the
bill, reported by its military committee, for
filling the ranks of the army. This bil
contaius several provisions for extending
‘te power of enlistment to minors, doubling
‘the bounty in land &c. The discussion
has not yet terminated.
The volunteer bill, which has been for
‘changed in its features, was on Monday, or
dered 10 lie on the table, with the expecta-
tion that it shalinot be calied upon until the
principal. war measure of session, the bill
for classing and drafing the militia, shall
have been acted on.
The committee of ways and meaus, in
. the house of representatives, on the same
day, reported a bill to estabiish a national
bank. = it being late in the day, the bill was

without resistance to the enemy; ithe ap-
