Senator MASON'S report on the subject of the right of search or visitation, in connection with the recent outrages, dissatisfies almost all but the Anti-British Party, because it proposes nothing. DOUGLAS declares it a brutem fulmen, though approv-ing it as far as it goes. He thinks legislation similar to that proposed by himself ought to have been fol-lowed, from the promises laid down in the report. The House Committee have had the subject only in-formally under consultation.
The Ordnance ship Plymouth received orders to-day to sail for the Gulf to-morrow, and will go at 6 o'clock. The following is a list of her officers. Captain—J. A. Dahlgreen.
