The Senate have passed a resolution and bill of the following titles, viz:

S. Res. 41. A resolution for the relief of Arthur Edwards and his associates; and

S. 347. An act to declare the meaning of the act entitled “An act making further provisions for the satisfaction of Virginia land warrants," passed August 31, 1852; in which I am directed to ask the concurrence of this House.

The Senate have agreed to the amendment of this House to the bill of the Senate (S. 84) to facilitate communication between the Atlantic and Pacific States by electric telegraph, with amendments; in which I am directed to ask the concurrence of this House.

Mr. Grow, from the second committee of conference on the disagreeing votes of the two houses on the bill of the House (H. R. 503) making appropriations for the service of the Post Office Department during the fiscal year ending the 30th of June, 1860, reported that the said committee had been unable to agree.

Mr. Grow moved that the House recede from its disagreement to the amendment of the Senate to the said bill (H. R. 503) and agree to the same with the following amendment, viz:

At the end of the said amendment add the following, viz:

Provided, The said service shall be performed in the same time as was prescribed in the schedule time in the contract for the service of the steamer Isabel, and the Postmaster General is hereby authorized and directed to pay for the actual service performed by the said steamer Isabel, from Charleston to Havana, previous to the passage of this act, at the same rate of compensation as was provided in the contract for that service: And provided, further, That the Postmaster General is hereby directed to restore the inland service on all routes under contract on the 4th of March, 1859, unless the same have expired by their own limitation, or where improved service over said routes has been furnished by railroads or otherwise; and where the service has been actually performed by the contractor upon curtailed lines, notwithstanding such curtailment the Postmaster General shall pay the contractors as if no change had been ordered; but the Postmaster General shall not be required to restore the service on any of said routes beyond one daily mail each way, nor to interfere with any changes of service that may have been made without reduction of price, nor to restore service on route No. 10615, from Neosho, Missouri, to Albuquerque, New Mexico, nor to restore service on route No. 15050, from Kansas, Missouri, via Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Stockton, California, nor any part of the route No. 8076, west of El Paso: Provided, further, That nothing herein contained shall debar the Postmaster General from discriminating or curtailing any of the routes hereby restored, nor shall the contractor or contractors upon said restored routes be paid any extra allowance whatever, in consequence of any new curtailment or discontinuance: And provided, further, That no service hereby restored shall be put in operation unless by the assent of the contractor or contractors there. for: And provided, further, That the appropriation herein made shall be so construed as to embrace those made by the joint resolution for the relief of the contractors of the Post Office Department,' approved 28th

March, 1860: And provided, further, That nothing herein contained shall be construed so as to renew the inail service on the Cumberland river, above Clarksville, in the State of Tennessee."

Mr. Grow moved the previous question; which was seconded and the main question ordered and put, viz: Will the House agree to the said motion ?
