Mr. CritteuJen presented a petition to the Senate, nu merously signed, a&Klug for a mollification of the natu ralisation laws. He stated tbat when the present laws were enacted tbe emigration wan trilling; now it was sufficient eacli year to control some of tbe States of the Union. Tbe subject will be cilled up at an early day in next seat ion. Tbe Compensation bill, wbich has been adopted by the two bouses of Congress, i^crevses their own pay this Congress seven hundred and flfly thoub^nd dollars. Mr Batler moved to reconsider it this morning, In order to strike out Its retrospective features, but tbe Senate re fcsed. A rumor was current in tbe ball to-day that tbe President would veto it as unconstitutional. This alarmed tbe democrats not a little, who bad voted for it. A veto of the bill, thoy admitted, would not only kill the bill, but them too. The House bill provldlig tor settliag the accounts of evolutionary ofllcors was called up in the Senate to-day, but was i-ovtponod until tbe third Monday In December next. Senators Toombs and Clay threatened to kill It by debate If not iioetponed. This they could havQ done, as the previous question does not prevail in tbe Senate. The Lighthouse Appropriation bill was parsed by the Senate, with t-ome few amendment*, and will go, with all the other appropriation bills, to a Committee of Con ference. The President's veto of the Patapsco Improvement bill was sustalne I by tbe Senate by one vote, but was recon sidered, and the bill passed over the President'! veto by a large coi>*titutional majority. Mr. Mason manifested caich feeling at this rough usage of tbe President's pre rogative. The question whether the Senate could recon - ?ider a \ ote given under tbe circumstances was ubly d sous -ed. This veto wis lnteded to operate on tho de (ni?rat'C rote of Maryland. Tbe Mil providing for running tbe southern boundary line of Kausa?

Every build ing on the Utlaad Is said to have bee* swept away and it bus been positively asi ertaiaed that ene hundred and eight persons have been lost. It is reared ttut Grand CailloL^ Island, mother watering place, has also been submerged, and many 1 res lost a' well as property destroyed. The corn, cotton and sugar crops have boon incal.-ula bly Injured. The steamers Nautilus and Perseverance lire neve-*1 <'ays overdue, and It is feared that something has hap pened to them. The steamship fexaj has gone in search of them. Tbe storm extended tar up tlio river. At the 9> rem moot Hospital, Biton Uonge, fourteen inches of water fell between Sunday evening and Tue day evening The survivors at lad Island reached this ?lty this morning. They estimate the loss of life at two hundred. (>n? hundred and eighty-two have already been counted as lost. Many of tbe survivors here from I^ast Island are badly wounded and brui .ed. The dead bodies at the bland were plundered by a set ot pirates who inhabit it. Tbe steamer Tei severanct has just arrived, but nothing as yet been heard from the Nautilus New Oai>. ann, Aug. 16, 18r>6 Nothing definite has yet been heard from Caillou It-land, but theie has undoubtedly been great loss or life there.

It is supposed that at least ten thousand dollars In mo key, In packets, (ell Into the hands of the pirates on I.u* Island, and about five tnousand dollars worth of baggage. Tbe loss on tMs island is estimated at over one hundred thousand dollars. The hanks of the river at Btyon Sara caved in, carry cg aw ly three hundred residences. No lives were lost. Several vessels were blown ashore at the mouth of tho ilississippi. The telegraph lines have suffered severely. The loss at Caillon Man J cannot fall short of sl'.ty bousam! dollar*.

Matters at Statni Island? .More of the Arrests of the Oemoltshera of the Barricade? Xo New Excitement. There are but one or two additional facts to be noted touching occurrences yesterday at ? aten Island. At t'astleton, sentinel* are 3till retaio?d to keep watch at tbe Quarau'.ine Hospital gate and along the walls. There are ten sentinels la all, who alternate in their dutlos keeping tip watch day and night. As partios arc per wilted by the sentinels to pass freely In and oi<t of the hospital gate, the utility of continuing them < u duty is quertioaed by some. Although they do not pretend to the exercise or any power In preventing any nuo parsing who has come through the gate fiom within tbe hospital enclosure they, however, are rigid in prohibiting any ooe from scaling the walls from within or without. Mean time, it Is proper to not<* In this connection that a sUt? mcni made in Saturday'! IIxkaik, that perfect freedom ol Ingres* and egress was permitted through the hMptUI gate, referred only to such permission being given on (he part of these outside sentinels. It was under stood, of course, that for any one to get through the gale be mud Ord receive a a pio| er permit from tbe hospital authorities. Sosao of (be Oastleton villagers snd others gathered the tmprcs s'on from the statement made ttiat on the part ?f the hospital authorities no restraint was oxercised In allow ing parties snd their bag (age to go outside.

A number ot captains of the vessels requiring to bo re moved trom Gravesend Bay^were in attendance before the Commissioners, and protested aga.ust the removal of their veast is to Spit, m called for by a pre vious resolution of the Hoard. They stated that the an i borage was not good at Southwest Spit, and that it was a danvurotiH locality In case of storm In % prolonged storm it wouid he impossible to send ueiiore for store?. They stated further that at this place lighters coul I not get alongside to receive the cargoes of the ships. Above all this iliey protested it was putting them to great and unuccoKt-ary expense.
