II, Tbe boose of representatives begin to profeed i'Xreditlo - lr - In k wwm of ye - UrcUy, thj ave Iba eoup - de - grate to the resolution offered by Mr. Johnson, of Kentucky, early in the ses sion, for proridiug for the widows of regular aol - tJfesaJjJlfJin battle : for donations of land to the tiooal military academies; for organizing a corps ofiuralidst for reducing tbe peace establishment to 8000 men ; and for giving n small addi - tonal compensation to the ouicer ot the army. It is not a subject of regret, perhaps, that these propositions were not debated, since their fat eemed to bar been foreseen yesterday, even by the mover ; and the disposal of them has cleared the wav for other topics of great importance, be fore tbn house ; anions which, besiae Dasiuess of course and incidental business, may be men tioned the uniform bankrupt bill ; the expatria tion hill; the Georgia claim for militia services; tha Massachusetts claim for do 5 the report on internal improvements; tbe judiciary tubject the bill to provide fot the pnui'hment of crimes against the United States ; the bill fcr theorga - uizstlon of the militia ; the qmstion respecting the disputed seats of members, who held offices nine their election, and a long list of et - ceteras. From the .Vational IntelligtnctrFtb. 14. The proj - resa of the petty war atrainst the Seminole tribe of Indians, ii not such as to STratify either the friends of humanity, or the friends of economy in public expenditures. We have seen that a brigade of militia was called fur, ar.d ordered out by the Governor of Georgia, to mareh to the Indian country. It march is delayed, by the necessity of first organizing this raw force; it ia impeded after wards by rarinus obsUcles,among which is the deficiency of supplies and of the means of transportation ; and now, we learn, before it had arrived within reach of an enemy, the mi - litia - men composing tlic briiraJe are returning; home, their three months' time of service hav ine? expired ! Another brigade bad been pre viously ordered out, and is on it way to the frontier t and, before it can be employed, it is probable, its time ol service will also have ex. pi red. Thus it frequently happens, when mi itia are called out for short terms of service, thai to march ami countermarch as the only service they perform, In expressing our regret at these facts, we do not certainly undertake to say how tbe evil could have been avoided, or that it wa avoid able. Gen. Gaines, no doubt, found the bos - tile Indians in greater force than be had anticipate: and, m receiving bis representa tions, it was found necessary not only to clothe him with authority to make these extensive requisitions, but also to order forth a thousand men from 1 ennessee. It rive us pleasure to be able to state, that there is nn room for the m - imation we have een in a Georgia paper, that the general go vernment baa neglected to furnish Uje neces sary funds to aid the operation ot Uie forc - j emplo) ed against the Indians. The Depart ment of War, we hare informed ourselves, has sent to thit quarter upward of thirty thousand dollar for the quarter masters' department ; of sixty thousand for thepsy department; and of a hundred thousand dollars for the cont ac tor's department Ample remittances will, no toubt, be made to meet the current expense of the campaign, to soon u the military appro - lrtalion bill fur 1818 is paesed - Meanwtme, we passage of t hat act has been delayed by the ouagreeing vo;e of the two bouses of Con gress, on a parti - .ular clause of tbe bill.

After the reading oflhe report, Mr. Lowndes, remarking that tba views taken ol tbe tubject by the committee rendered unnecessary the attempt to elucidate it by any farther remark from himself, moved thnt this House do naTi - re to it disagreement to the amendment of the Senate which proposes an appropriation for the brevet extra lir.

That the military peace esta blishment of the United State shall consist of eignt thousand men, including the corps of invalids, pov kled Uiat the corps of engineers the general staff and the ordnance deparment, shall be retained at at present established.

No debate took place on these resolution, but the question was successively taken on tnem, They were all rejected, except the 4th, hicli was passed over, (on account of information on that tubiect havin? been called for from Uie military department and the 6th, whii'D. wa agreed to, by as large a majority as mere vu ior rejecting ail me otner. The following resolution had also been refer red to Uie same cpmmittee, on motion of Mr. VTaiker, ot North Carolina.

The committee then rose and reported it proceeding to the House. 1 be question being on concurrence in these several votes - Mr. Johnson, in a speech of half an hour, en tered In protest against the several decision of 'he House. 1 The votes in committee of the whole were then severally concurred in. When the ixtli resolve wa under conside ration, Mr. Robertson, of Lou. moved to amend it by adding to it a proposition to this effect s that the military committee be instructed to enquire into the expediency of educating at Uie Military School oflhe United States, the eons of all officers, non - commissioned officers or privates, who have fallen in fighting for their country. The amendment was negatived, not, it is believed, from an objection to the princi ple it embraced, but to it introduction ia thi manner.
