The House adjourned until to-morrow, 11 o'clock in the forenoon.

THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1834.

A message from the Senate, by Mr. Lowrie, their Secretary:
Mr. Speaker : The Senate have passed bills of the following titles, viz.
No. 84. An act concerning the duties on lead;

No. 206. An act concerning the orphans' courts of the counties of Washington and Alexandria, in the District of Columbia; in which bills I am directed to ask the concurrence of this House. And then he withdrew.

The message received from the President of the United States yesterday was read, and is as follows: To the House of Representatives of the United States :

I transmit to Congress an extract of a despatch from Mr. Livingston, the minister of the United States at Paris, dated the 7th ultimo, and the copy of a communication made to him by Captain Ballard, commander of the frigate United States, by which it appears that in firing a national salute from that ship, at Toulon, in honor of the birthday of the King of the French, two men were killed and four others wounded on board the French ship of war Suffren. Suitable explanations were immediately made to the French admiral ; and the officers and crew of the American frigate, with that generosity which distinguishes their profession, promptly contributed, by a liberal subscription, towards providing for the families of the unfortunate sufferers. I am sure, however, that I should not do justice to the feelings of the American people on this occasion, if I did not invite Congress to assume, on their part, this melancholy duty. I propose, therefore, that the same provision be made, by law, for these French seamen and their families as would be made for American seamen killed or wounded in battle. This proceeding will show the deep sensibility with which the disastrous accident is viewed by the United States, and their readiness to alleviate those consequences which cannot be remedied.

ANDREW JACKSON. WASHINGTON, 18th June, 1834.

Ordered, That the said message be referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Mr. Ellsworth, from the Committee on the Judiciary, to which was recommitted the bill (No. 431 ) to authorize a writ of error in certain cases relating to patent rights to the Supreme Court of the United States, reported the same without amendment.

The question recurred on an amendment moved yesterday by Mr. Beaty to the last amendment reported from the Committee of the Whole House ; when

Mr. Beaty withdrew his amendment.

A motion was then made by Mr. Mercer to amend the said last amend. ment of the Committee of the Whole House [ set forth in the journal of yesterday] by adding thereto the following, viz.
