A Vacation Proposed

WASHINGTON, May 20. – An effort will be made in the House to-morrow to adjourn on the 28th inst., until the 2nd of June in order to enable members to visit their homes, and afford time for putting the hall in summer trim.  Those who favor the proposition say that such an arrangement will not delay the business as the House is far in advance of the Senate in this respect. – The House only contemplates a holiday.
