There has been no business of interest transacted by this most august assemblage during its sessiun to dav. Resolutions, and some few reports from Committees, have been presented. The reso lutions were mostly calls upon the several Executive Departments, and the bills generally of a private character. Thu most important bill was one regulating the nrxATio.N or .masthi: and slave, bv Mr. Wilkins from the Committee oil the Judiciary. It changes tho present relation of rms'er and slave m the District ot Loiumoia, as the existing laws permit tho arrest and im nrisonment of troo colored person, on suspicion of being slaves, and su hold them for this crime until they can prove themselves to bo otherwise. If they tail to produce tho necetsary evidence through the means of legal free papers, on the claimant of their owner, they are sold into slavery to pay all magistrate, and jail charge. Tlie bill propoi-es tint tho onus of proof shall be changed from the poor necro to thn individ ual arresting, he beinj; obliged ml lo show that the colored person is a slaie, b;foro ho can bo imprisoned. The report on tho Rules was discussed by Mr Bo'fpr of Alabama, ami Mr U'ack of lleor. gia, who had tho floor when llio ttiorninj; hour expired, The Prcside'tit'n Message came up iu Com mittec of tho Whole, and the reference of that portion relating to tho VvT.STC.RN tt'ATr.ns, was discussed by that very interesting and clo quont debater, from the flourishing State of .Missouri, tho lion. ev-Spealicr ol tlie Missouri House of Representatives, John Jameson Perhaps tho most interesting procedure tn lay, was tho refusal of the House to permit Mr Nothing can he than lo persist in thus trampling upon tho ri'dits of every freeman, whether of the North or ol the booth. iV'tluug gives to the abolition cause more impetus than tho continuance of the gag ami, consequently, the course of Clin''- man is the one of true policy for Southern men. iMHwitnstanilinir tins, tho Southern Iicos are exceedingly bitter against tins gallant North i.irolinian. ami arc determined to break mm own, if it bo a possible llunir. With this view, the have put lorward a fellow by the name of liidlaclt, just thu creature to bo their readv tool, who Favs that ho has always voted for tlio rule while the South were united anion" themselves but now they are no longer m, he shall not vote for its continuance.

Thus, Alabama recognises in l.er own Constitution, and by her laws, the same principle as that for which the Massachu- setts resolutions contend.
