Inquiries will bo made in regard to Canadian laws or commercial regula tions which discriminate between British vessels, or which operate in tbo nature of suon discrimination. The Committee will ascertain the annual increase of tho West re quiring transportation to tho East, ond tho rela tive increase of railroad mileage in tho Western States, and tho routes for transporting each products from tho West to tho seaboard. They will also obtain tho most reliable information which can bo obtained from official and other sources as to tho amount of tho surplus pro duct of each of tho Western States, and tho demand for this surplus by geographical dis tricts, viz.: tho Eastern States, tfio Middle States, tho South Atlantic, tho Gulf States and I foreign countries, thus determining the relative | value of tho homo and foreign market. > While the Committee have thus prepared for themselves a chart embracing tho geuoral scope of their inquiries, tho plan will ho modified and enlarged in such maimer as may appear to bo required by tho results of their investigation and practical observation, after visiting the various parts of the country.

Tho records of tho several executive depart ments glvo evidence of tho continued prosperity and growth of trado botwoou tho United States and tho Island of Cuba. It is ascertained that tho number of vessels engaged in this trado from Now York and other Atlantic ports has al most doubled within tho past eighteen months. This has been done, despite tho Invidious port regulations at Havana against vessels from tho United Qtatos. Applications are fre quently mndo at tho Post-Ofllco Department for tho privilege of carrying tho malls to that Sort, for tho reason thatmallvessels aro froonn or existing treaty provisions from thoso annoy ances. This unwarranted interference on the part of tho Cubans, or rather tho Spanish volun teers, with American vessels, is now tho subject of a sharp diplomatic correspondence between our Government and that of Spain. .Tho object in to obtain tho samo privileges in tho port of Ilavaua that aro accorded British vessels. \To (/id A BBodatcd Preet ,] PUnUO DEDT HTATF.MENT, (.

The Supremo Court of tho United States, to day, postponed until October tho application of counsel of ox-Qov. Warmoth for allowance of an appeal from the decision of Judge Duroll iu tho Louisiana case, and gavo leave to Phillips, counsel for Warmoth. to file record and other papers in the case. Tlio Court adjourned sine die. Tho date of tho next mooting of tho Court is fixed by law for tho second Monday in Oc tober. Tho following decision was rendered by tho Supremo Court to-day: Brigham Young, Trus tee iu trust of tho Church of Jesus Christ, Latter-Day Saints, versus Qodbe; error to Su premo Court for Utah. In this case, Godbo had an account against tho Desorot Navigation and Canal Company, and believing that Young, in his capacity of Trustee of tho Church, also rep resented tho Navigation Company, ho presented the bill to him as Trustee. Young refused pay ment, claiming that, although ho liad tho man agement of tho Company, it was in no way con nected with tho Church. On the trial, tho main question was whether tho Church aud Company wore one or soparato things, and a witness was put upon tho stand who testified that while clerk in & mercantile house ho remembered to have hoard a fellow-clerk say that upon preseu tatiou to Young of a similar bill ho paid it by giving credit on the tithing account. This testimony carried tho oaso against the Trustee In trust, and ho brought it boro,where judgment is reversed, tho Court holding that (ho testi mony in question was purely hearsay evidence, and should uot have boon admitted. Incildontal ly it is said for tho benefit of parties in tho now trial that tho creditor is entitled to interest on on overdue debt, aud that whore tho account is stated the interest runs from that date, and that In tho absence of any rate of interest proscribed by Territorial law to apply in such oases, a rea sonable allowance should be made by way of damages for non-payment. Tho reason for the postponement by tho Su premo Court to-day, of tho application of tho counsel for Warmoth for the allowance of an appeal from the decision of Judge Duroll In the Louisiana case, was that the Court had nothing but the application before it, and therefore could not act. Counsel was granted leave to file record and other papers in the case preliminary to its consideration. Several eminent lawyers practis ing before the trial, are of opinion that tho Su premo Court will not act immediately upon tho subject at tho fall term, to which it has adjourn ed, but will delay In order to give Congress an other opportunity to not upon the subject of tho Louisiana complications, as a political question, thus removing it from judicial review.
