There is one other topic on which we desire to
make a ;ngle remark, ani that is the project of altew

the Loco Foco faction, are iltdllering thenielvpes with
the expectation that the North is going to embarrass
the Administration, by bringing this forward as a fa-
vorite measure, and urging its adoption. We have
no idea that it will do amy nevrh thing. ITf ihe Southern,
Western and Middle i-'..te' ire sulfficienil convinced
of the necessity of having such a rIgulator uf the cur-
rency, and desire such a N.tinil inIsttiliii'n, it is not
probable that the North will offer an 66 ri,.,u` ..pposi-
tion. If, on the contrary, they wish iu hae Ithe mat-
ter remain where it is, we are equally content. Ex-
perience has shown that it is not more indispensable
to us than to them, to have a pill',r lo Itati azair,it

tion for such an institution, and other important con-
siderations, and although there may be some approa-:h
to unanimity ofopinion in its favor in the seaports aind
other marts of trade, yet as a majority of the people do
not seem disposed to agitate the matter, we do not an-
ticipate any general movement in relation to it from
this quarter. "Rest! perturbed spirits!"
Mr. Cushing desired to say a word in regard to the
opinion, real or supposed, of the North upon the ques-
tion of the Tariff.
It is simply this, (continued Mr.C.) as I believe, and,
I may say, as I know. We wish for a tariff because
the alternative, we think, is direct taxation. We wish
for a disieimirnaing tariff, for the alternative is, that
all tbhe inititisrts of the country would be thrown
naked, .hrua.l, bare, and defenceless to the world, un-
less there wei e such duties for the protection of the in-
terests of the United States against foreign compEtilion
and assault. But wve ildo not want a high proturlie

W Ihiher we are parlirs or not to the Compromise Act;
whether we are ready or desnous to depart from it, is
a ,ee..,idar question We dWe sire heartily, anxiously,
and cordially, a policy of conciliation-of just regard
for the welfare of the whole United States-a policy
of compromise, such as our fathers transmitted to us
in the Constitution of the United States. And the
position of my own State at this time, I will add, is
peculiarly one of balanced interests; and we stand
upon this flonr with balanced views-neither with ex-
iremie thereiicil opinions on the one hand, nor with
extro-le i-t I'31' interest on the other, to rrlisuide- us

interests on the United States Bank Question. And
at a proper time I desire to be permitted to explain
these views in detail; which it would be trespassing
on the indulgence of the gentleman from New York
(Mr. Vanderpoel) to attempt to do now. I am only
desirous now simply to state my own knowledge of the
views of my own State-to deny that we are for bring-
ing ultra tariff notions before the country. It is not
true. We are content with such a revenue from cus-
toms as will meet the wants of the Government, and
such a revenue properly applied in the terms of the
Constitution will afford sufficient incidental protection
to guard our interests, and, in our opinion, will be for
the interest of the whole United States.
Mr. Thompson, of Mississippi, was understood to
inquire of Mr. Cushing what he meant by discrimi-
nating duties-being, as ihe (Mr.C.) had expressed him-
self, opposed to a high protective tariff !
Mr. Cushing. I willtell you. By lacriminaiing
duties I mean this: duties imposed for ihe Ip.urpsrs oi-
revenue, but so apportioned as to guard and promote
the domestic interests of the country. And I will il-
lustrate my meaning by reference to ort,. ',f tlhe great
topics of discussion now before the com,nniteiie. A pr-
position has been made that there be duties on winer-s
and silks, and that proposition is repelled t,. ge'fitlemren
from the South as if it were injurious to irh-ni say
to all gentlemen of the South, if you Jo_ nt want du.

If you are content that the whole of the rev-nue shalt
be levied upon necessaries-for the protection olf tb.e
iron of Pennsylvania and the coal of Virrnia, and the
manufactures of the East-if, I say, v.ou de-ire tllsi
so be it. I have not a word to sav. WVe do not press
upon you atax upon luxuries, but we ha.e intioiulted our
willingness to concur with you in a tax upon luxuries.
If you repel it, be it so. We are then thrown hack
upon that which is the existing law, under which rev-
enues of the United States are raised by taxes upon
articles of agriculture, mining, manufacture, or the
sea, producible in the United States and th, pro.lutii...n
of the industry of the United States. That ii a dis
criminating duty-and that, in a moderate degree,
maintains the interests of all parts of the United State.n,
provided it be in no degree beyond the wants of the
General Government. That is all I desire. Of the
90,000 of my constituents, 30,000 are engaged in ma-
rine or other commerce, 30,000 in manufactures, and
30,000 in agriculture. That is a specimen ,f Miasa-

them, impose upon me a duty of conciliation and of

The Log Cabin was originally established as an
adocae ,f the principles and measures of NATIONAL,
RrroC.atM on which a majority of the People of the
Union comiLbined their efforts and put forth their strong-
est energies tois n-rthrow the anti-republican Admin-
istration of Mlartin Van Buren. Of those princi-
ples and measures it remains and will continue an ar-
dent, inflexible supporter. It advocates a Retrench-
ment of the National Expenditures, a Limitation of
Executive Patronage and Sway, a rigid regard to
Principle in removals from any Worth in Appoint-
ments to Office, Moderation in the exercise of Pow-
er, and a primary regard in all things to the wishes and
welfare of the people.

the most important Debates in Congress and other
Political matter of general interest; on the second,
Editorial strictures on National policy and proposed or
pending Political measures, with a summary of Elec-
tions, State Legislation. &c.; on the third page, Do-
mestic and Foreign News, carefully condensed and
lucidly presented; on the fourth page, literary and
Miscellaneous Readings, extracts from New Works,
&c., generally of a solid and practical character. Very
few Advertisements will at any time be admitted.
All the numbers of The Log Cabin from the com-
mencement of the present Series Will be forwarded to

Mr. GRAHAM moved to amend the amendment
by striking out the whole item of 25,000, as the only
way if puloing an end to the abuses which were un-
,i.,uti-,Jly ipra'.ted was to withhold the appropriation.
The sum of $100,000 had already been appropriated
for ,oniiiiiintri expenses, (by a former bill) and that
Messrs. EVERETT, MORGAN, LEWIS WIL-
LIAMS, TILLINGHAST, and BYNUM, made
some remarks in favor of the amendment of Mr.
Graham; aand Messrs. FLOYD, EVANS, and MON-
ROE, inr, o'po-il i.:n
Mr. MOlRGAN gave notice that he would at the
proper time offer the following amendment:
"And in the future delivery of stationery of every
description to members of the House, the postmaster
shall keep an account of the articles delivered to each
i,,embe r, with the prices thereof; and the Clerk of the
Ihl'u- strail insert in his annual report of the contin-
gent expenses, the aggregate amount of the value of
stationery received by the members respectively :
Mr. LINCOLN here said that his only object in
ubrniitting his motion was to brirLg the mattel to the
c,,nstdeiat,. ,n of the House, and that being done. he
would now accept the amendment of Mr. Graham as a
modification of his own.
And the question being on the amendment as modi-
Mr. TILLINGHAST then gave notice of his in-
tention, if the amendment failed, to offer the following:
And nothing herein contained shall be construed
to authorize or sanction any contract for stationery or
other articles of merchandise for the use of the ensu-
ing Congress by any officer of the present Congress
to an amount exceeding in the whole two thousand
Mr. ADAMS sent to the Clerk's table a letter from
an individual of the name of Stone," in relation to
the prices of lithography.
The letter (Mr. A. said) was rather collateral to the
question; he had had it in his possession for three
months, but had had no opportunity of presenting it:
and (he was understood to add) he despaired of doing
any good by presenting it.
The letter was then read.
The question was discussed further by Messrs.
Tillinghast, Everett, Lincoln, and Underwood.
Mr. LINCOLN said that, on subsequent examina-
tions he found that his original motion was the proper
one; and he again modified his proposition so as to re-
duce the entm I'r,,om '5 Ii )t, lo flP5,,ii, lr' i e. striking
out all thaIL a%. appieB:.,le to the 'ine Twaior of Con-
And the question being taken, the amendment, thus
modified, was agreed to.
So the item was reduced from $25,000 to $15,000.
Mr. CURTIS then moved that the committee rise.
The motion having prevailed, the committee rose,
reported progress, and obtained leave to sit again.
Mr. B U R K E laid on the table a resolution propo-
sing to revive the select committee of the last session
appointed on the subject of certain contracts made by
the Clerk for stationery, engraving, lithography, &c.
so as to enable the committee to make report of the
proceciomns, which they did not do at the last session.
The res-oluti..n was read.
Mr. STANLY said he had something to say in re-
-aton to the dr.ines of thn '-oimmititee prcpos-ed io bare-
ands, and wht'ti he shulil taLke ra i,|ip..runauiv of say-

PENSION ACT OF 1838.
The following resolution, submitted by Mr. PREN-
TIss on Thursday, was, after a brief discussion, adopt-
Resolved, That the act entitled an act granting
half-pay and pensions to certain widows, approved July
7, 1838, ought not to be construed to deprive any wi-
dow of its benefits in consequence of her having mar-
ried after the decease of her husband for whose servi-
ces she may claim to be allowed a pension or annuity
under said act, provided she was a widow at the time
the same was passed; and that the Committee on Pen-
sions be instructed to report a bill to that effect.
TREASURY NOTE BILL,
The Scate 'hen poceeded to the consideration of
the bill auotl,.iizrig ile issue of Treasury notes.
Mr. BENTON demanded the yeas and nays on or-
dering the bill to a third reading. He said he was wil-
ling that the Government should borrow as much mo-
ney as would be required to meet its wants, but he
would always vote, as he had heretofore voted, against
issuing Treasury notes.
The question was then taken, and decided as fol-
YEAS-Messrs. Anderson, Bayard, Buchanan,
Calhoun, Clay, of Alabama, Dixon, Fulton, Graham,
Hubbard, Kerr, King, Knight, Linn, Lumpkin,

heing .r. its final t.i'sa-iu ,
Mr. CLAY. of Ky., arose and declared his uncom-
promising opposition to this mode of supply, for which
he gave his reasons at length.
An intrerstiig nnd animated discussion followed in

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1841.
IN THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ESSENTIAL LET THERE
BE UNITY-IN NON-ESSRNTIALS, LIBERTY ; AND IN ALL
THE NEW CABINET.
So far as depends upon Gen. Harrison, his
Cabinet will be composed as follows:
DANIEL WEBSTER, of Mass., Secretary of
THOMAS EWING, of Ohio, Secretary of the
JOHN BELL, of Tenn., Secretary of War.
GEORGE E. BADGER, of N. C., Secretary of'
FRANCIS GRANGER, of N. Y., Postmaster Ge-
JOHN J. CRITTENDEN, of Ky., Attorney General.
In his remarks at Baltimore, Gen. Harrison,
we are pleased to see, claimed to be a Democra-
tic Republican in all his sentiments, feelings,
associations, and actions. This is as we ex-
pected. We inferred such to be his character,
from his acts and the tenor of his writings.-
By our brief intercourse with him we have been
confirmed in the justice of the inference. We
consider him, so far as we can judge, one of the
very best expressions of .merican DE.mocracv
we have ever had.
Gen. Harrison's htr.us-,hoild will not be ccm-
pleted until after the opening of the spring.
when Mrs. Harrison, now at North Bend, is ex-
pected to join the General. Meantime the do-
mestic arrangements of the White House will
be superintended by the family of Mr. Taylor,
the General's son-in-law, who will be his Private
The President of the United States returned
the visit of Gen. Harrison on Thursday. Gen.
H. dines with the President to-day.
We rejoice to observe these courtesies be-
tween the heads of the opposing parties. It
looks as if there was a prospect at last of allay-
ing the asperities of party feeling.
The Globe complains that Gen. Harrison in-
sinuated, in his remarks at Baltimore, that long
possession of great power has a corrupting ten-
denty. The complaint is made, because the
Globe infers the General meant that the present
Administration was corrupt! How extremely
sensitive and virtuous has the Globe suddenly
become. Corruption has been charged upon
this Administration in numerous instances, and
what is more, the charges have sometimes been
proven. Look at the levying taxes upon the
salaries of office-holders to pay the expenses of
an election. Look at the millions of money
squandered upon favorites, in the shape of jobs
and contracts. Look at the millions plundered
and run away mvt Ih by Sub-treasurers. Insinu-
ate corruption! We verily believe it exists in
every branch and department of the Govern-
ment, and the task of REFORM has been legibly
inscribed by the people upon the list of Execu-
tive duties. The Globe will hear of something
stronger than an insinuation applied to the task
of reform, however meek and virtuous the old
transgressors may pretend to be. This dread of
removal from office is borne with an ill grace by
those who have themselves so long and .o .i:-i-
lessly exercised the tenors of proscripti-rs.
Mr. Gonon has recently arrived in this city
from New Orleans, where he exhibited his new
system of Telegraphs before the Legislature of
Louisiana, the Chamber of Commerce, and se-
veral other distinguished bodies; who have given
him the most flattering recommendations to
Congress. Mr. Gonon has already presented his
plan to the Senate ilIIught the Hon. Senator
Mouton; and the memorial and accompanying
documents have been ordered to be printed. The
subject was referred for an examination by the
Committee on Commerce, before whom, Mr.
Gonon made a trial of his system with his mo-
del, which, we understand, was highly satisfac-
tory to the Committee; and they have decided
upon making a report in his favor, and recom-
mending its adoption by the Government. We
should be glad if our Legislators could bestow
upon this rouniry the adantages of an enter-
prise which would place us upon a level with
France-the only nation that now possesses a
good system of Telegraphs.

MR. VAN BUREN AND GEN. HARRISON.
The first vote which I ever gave for Presidentofthe
United States was cast for James Monroe. I voted
three times for Gen. Jackson, and once for Mr. Van
I frankly confess, however, that many of Mr. Van
Buren's measures have not met my approbation.
At an early period of his Administration, I strong-
ly remi.-snl rat d against those measures, and expostu-
lIated atlt his most prominent and active political
friends in both Houses of Congress, urging them to
desist from pursuing, what I considered to be, a ruin-
ous and destructive policy.
I then predicted the present paralyzed, prostrate and
ruined condition ofthe country, unless those measures
v-:.re at once al.and..nedl. They were, however, per-
sisted in; and what I then predicted, is now historical
I further predicted, that without an immediate
change of measures, the Administration party itself
would become a minority in the Nation; and, in this,
also, I ha-c r .,t been deceived.
So thor.,ugh were my convictions of the injurious
policy of Ithe present Administration, that I could not,
and did not, vote for the re-election of Mr. Van Bu-
The People of the United States have, within the
last year, in the manner prescribed by their own laws,
and in unusual tranquility, selected Gen. Harrison as
their Chief Executive Magistrate. However they
may have differed concerning the questions which have
been presented them, all will agree that the peace and
good order which have marked the contest, from its
beginning to its final result, furnish ample proof that
they may be safely permitted to discuss every measure
that concerns their welfare; and that neither force nor
fraud is necessary to secure submission to the laws,
where power is limited, reason enlightened, and suf-
So much for the past: a word as to the future. I
hope that the new Administration will pursue a policy
that will r ratly irimpros the condition of the country.

have no great anxiety as to their course.

EXTRACT FROM THE
SPEECH OF MR. EVANS, OF MAINE.
The Secretary, in closing his "last annual report,"
enters into a review of some of our financial opera-
tions during the period he has been connected with
the Department; and he states that "during this term
there has occurred much to evince the great fiscal
p.evcr s-s-ell as prrqspsi-y ofthe Union." Although
sn rrcsrses b.se Orit tni oveitakten the rasfiness
displavid 1V p.is'- ofthe community in ctain hr.in-J.
es of busiriee.s" yet "the period, and the county), as a
whole, have been almost unexampled in prosperous
developments. Notwathstandina unusual revul-
sions," and benrial rJutrionas ,,fdulites and losses by
"officers, and banks, and merchants," "our condition
has been so flourishing as to yield a revenue, during
that time, sufficient, after all these deductions, to ac-
complish the following important results:" and then
follows the enumeration of the purposes which have
been accomplished. All this, the Secretary says, is
"recorded evidence of the propf-. rih;. of the country,
and the fiscal ability of ithe General Government."
Now, sir, I have nodesireto disturb ,r tin.] faulh with
this coIll.hent seltf-L.ngritulstiton but I dtire fir a
sin.l,- moment to sori.der what the codilt'.ti of Ihe
country really is. Is at prosperous si.] seissessfula
Where is the evidence of it? The Nati.:nal Govetn-
ment embarrassed in all its operations, and struggling
on from day to day under the pressure of an mosols-ent
Treasury, public works neglected snd pistlpsned,
public credit endangered. hen, as to the c-t~ies
most of them deeply in debt,atit hardly able to pay e-en
the interest as it accrues; their bonds from lIi I0 30
per cent. below par, their internal improvements
abandoned in a great degree, and rea.,rt to) heave
taxes inevitable, with no prospect of itmmedmate im-
provement in their condition. As to the affanis of in-
dividuals: what kind of business is proresoeus I-
Manufactures have largely declined; ,,aitinerce, dis-
tinct from navigation, diminished; maternal trade
-reatly reduced; specie Liiments ssi'peniesl over a
r..ntsdertsble portion of the Union, and but lately re-
sumed in the great Stlue of Pennaylhants ; and 'com
all quarLers -f the land, as with one "eoice, a demand
for a bankrupt law, io relieve the business of the
country from the enormous pressure of debl which
now bears ni down to the dust.
How is it with the planting Stales-the growers of
the great staple four experts I Are they prosperous I
Why. sir, the marshal of Msississippi returns to us
that he has receiesrd for 6e- last year the enormous
sum of eighltv-sesven thousrs,n dollars, growing out of
the immense number ofui'slna iitiuted fior the recove-
ry of debis. The banks ,' the Slate are unable to
pay the stiuall amounts aill due to the Unirted States
fCr deposiles, and hale applied for still longer post-
poneocent. How is it in Albhanm, and the olhert ct-
inn-growing regions"i Cotlon, I believe, h.r. been
rainig last yeaiir from 5 lto or 8 cenht--probablv not
bringing over I1 or to the planter. I recollect to hae
,een it stated within a few years that ihe cost of th.
production of cotton was about 7 or 8 cents Some
rerleinc-n cbnr probably put ne rgl2ht on that matter.
[Mr. Huhbard, of Alatiarna, nodded assent to the
etaleneni ] The hunorai'le nmcnller signifles that 1
am correct. The c.,-si to ihi plariter, iherelbre, has
been quite equalI to, perhaps in some instances greater
than, the amount he has been able to sell for. Is that

aiys It is a source ofgrea, satir-taction to witness
the indicasons which ihe unprecedented amount of
exports, during the last four years, has grien of the
continued prospersry of the countryy" &c. Again,
' The general prosperity has been such a i to crests
a large surplus ofproduiicis, and to enable us to send
abroad inmmen.e and incr'caad raluies of Ihem, how-
eser great Ithe complaints hise been as t1 low pitces."
Now, ir. ifprice- are so I-'wv as scarcely to remunerate
the producerr, it doc" not srinke me that the real tuan-
miy produced is iery good evidence of prosperity -
General pr.[speiity ins aade up of individual prosperitly,
and how the cuntn, as a a hole, cron be .iucceisslul,
%hen all branches of in4 business i.s de1.rrssed, is not
sery apparent tm my mind Undoubtedly it is better
to produce and sell even at low prices, and thus fur-
nish, as fiar as it goer, means of extinguishing our eo-
reign indebiedne!s, than not tu produce al all; beausa
the laborers, if not einpl.ioyed, mu.t still be subsisted
and clothed; and if they cannot earn more than half
iheir support, il is better tudo.) that than remain in idle.
rnce.s All thal can be said is, that by reason of our
great prodiicton, though no. prorit is made upon il, we
are' not s. de,-ply insoled anid so niuch distressed as
we should be if the crops eliuel' failed The grain-
growing sections of the country-the great Vealt, the
growers of pork and other proi-aons-are they pros-
petous 'I Do they find ready markets and remune-
rating prices We know thai it is nut so; and yet
Se Iae rt.-:.rdtd eridenrr, ,tof' lh r.'.perrty .of the
c-juntry." Sir, I should like to real his record else-
where than in the ursisersal embarrassment and de-
piession ovhich broods over the hole land and all,
all brought upon it withi this very period which the
Secretary has selected as one unexampled in prospe-
rous de%'lopnrments"-all within the last eight years.
Thee recorded esidrnce" to which the Sirretary re-
t'fers a found only in the .asul receipts into the Treasu-
ry which haer enablEd him to accomplish the great re-
sults he has enttui rated The Secretary has not al-
ways considered it in that lighl The enormous re-
cripts alluded to occurred chiefly in tiwoyears, 1835
and 1836, and in a considerable degree from most ex-
iraordinary an. unexpected sales of put-lic land.-
The receipts of I F35 were about $35,500,000, of which
15,0(il ,1:tJ were derived from the lands. The re-
ceipts of I 3A36 were close upon 49,000000, of which
ouer 24010tt.ij)0 were dceri rd' from lands.
Whole amount for two years, F84,303,fl51
Expenditures during the same years, 41,23',0,)0
Excess of receipts, $37,054,051
These years, therefore, are the great source ofthe vast
receipts which the Secretary now re-Iardi as "record-
ed evidence" of our prosperity, because the receipts of
the last four years have not equalled the expenditures.
Sir, I cannot but recollect how often, within the last
two years, I hare heard the importations and the land
sales of those years denounced as "ovr.-tradinmg"'-
"speculation"-forced nr by bank ex pansions-grow-
ing out of fictitious er-dit; andJ as the cause of all the
embarrassments and revulhiorn which followed The
specie circular was issued avowedly to check the land
sales which were going oin tlo such dangerous extent.
What vehement leniruiciations have we not listened
to both of banks and of State debts, as occasioning
such enormous importations from abroad, destructive
of our industry and our resources I And yet It was
these very importations and sales which furnished the
Treasury with money-now relied upon as "recorded
evidence of the prosperity of the country." The Se-
cretary himself, in his report to Congress in Dec., 1838,
says: "An over-flowing tide of speculation and bank
issues like that of 1836 is not anticipated, while the re-
cent evils and disasters from these sources are fresh in
remembrance." He was constrained "at that time"
to regard many of the appearan-es qf extlraordinaey
proap.rity as delui're, the existing surplus as tempo-
rary and fllac-Lous,"& &c. _
By what strange process is it that this faUllacy, these
delusive appearances, have become entitled to the
great weight and the high authority of '"re.o'rded evi-
dence i But, sir, nut to hold the Secretary bound by
opinions expressed tw,, ears age, and which he may
hare since changed, we find in ithisa same document-
the report of this year-a repetition of the same sen-
timents. Having stated the great results which he
has accomplished, he nexi proceeds to explain the dif-
ficulties which he has h to encounter. One ot' the
greatest evils to the public service, as well as to the se-
curity of private business, during a part of the above
period, has consisted in the fluctuations to which both
have been subjected."
These fluctuations are exhibited, among other proof,
in the great falling off of imports, which he says,
"fell within twoyears from near one hundred and nine-
ty millions to one hundred and fourteen; and in the
single year just past, almost sixty millions." Such
inflations and contractions must be destructive of all
confidence in calculati..ns for the future, while the
causes of them shall continue to operate unremedied.
What are these causes 1 They will be Iound to have
beenchiefly connected with the abuses of banking.
On the occasion just referred to, they were the super-
abundance of a fictitious medium of circulation, with
the attendant overtrading and speculations in 1836,
and the consequent suspension of specie payments in
1837 as well as the disasters and scarcity of apy me-
dium till the latter part of 1838." Then another ex-
pansion, he says, and "increase of imports of nearly
fifty millions,' followed by contractions, suspensions,
and commercial reverses. The great principles of
trade can never be long violated with impunity. And
any fictitious or unnatural excess of credit soon ends
in revulsions," &c. I understand the Secretary, in
all this to affirm that in 1836 "the great principles of
trade" had been violated; that revulsion necessarily
followed- that there was a superabundance of ficti-
tious credit, bringing on overtrading and speculation;
the consequence of which was, suspension of specie
payments, disasters, and scarcity of any medium, &c.
He ys, also, "some imprudences abroad may have
augmented the evils here." Now, if all this be so, I
cannot comprehend how it is that the operations of
these Tears of abundant revenue and large receipts-
operations which have brought in their train reverses,
disasters, and evils, and have inflicted such deep and
wide-spread injury upon the country-how it can be
that they furnish evidence of great fiscal ability and
unexampled prosperity. According to the Secretary's
statement, we have been undergoing, in pretty rapid
succession, for several year, these alternate contrac-
tions and expansions; or, to use another expression
of his, the community has been kept under the con-
stant excitement and depression of the hot and cold
fits of a violent fever." Is that a condition of health I
Does it indicate prosperity I I shall not now go into
the consideration of the causes of the re, ulion s and

ARRIVAL OF GEN. HARRISON.
The President elect of the United States
reached this city on Tuesday by the morning
train of cars from Baltimore, between 11 and
His arrival at thte-Railroad Depot was an-
nounced by agun from Capitol Hill, andnotwith-
standing a very heavy and unpleasant snow
storm which began early in the morningand con-
tinued during the day, the avenues were filled
with multitudes of citizens and strangers, who
had assembled to behold and hail the man who
has been chosen by the united voices of the peo-
ple to preside over the affairs of the Republic.
According to the programme of arrangements
previously published, the citizens, including the
Central Democratic Tippecanoe Club, assem-
bled at half past nine o'clock at the City Hall,
and moved in procession to the Depot, When
the gun was fired announcing the arrival of the
cars, the agitatiun of the multitude was im-
mense, and the rush to the doors of the car
house so great that it seemed impossible after-
wards to preserve the lines. Pr ceded by the
Marine Band, the procession, with Gen. Harri-
son on foot at its head, moved ilirojgh the two
lines of people to the City Hall. Notwithstand-
ing the continual fall of snow, the steps and
balconies of the houses along the streets were
crowded with people, including great numbers
of fair ladies, to whose animating cheers of
welcome, the General, with head uncovered,
gracefully bowed acknowledgment. All were
inspired with enthusia---nrulhitudr., were
.--- urtuot rtvj th,,ld the venerable- tia, of the far-
famed Hero of Tippecanoe, while many farm-
ers from the surrounding country, and mecha-
nics of our own District were eager to welcome
the deliverer of the country, in whom all their
present hopes of good government are now cen-
tred. On reaching the "Odd Fellows Room,"
at the City Hall, the Chairman of the Commit-
tee of Reception, who is also Mayor of the city,
addressed the President [leer as follows:
"In obedience, rir, to the wishes of my fellow-citi-

QUESTION OF'AN EXTRA SESSION.
With the Richmond Whig, Alexandria Ga-
zetlle, Albany Err.-ning Joiurnal, N. Y. Log Ca-
bin, Cincinnaili tcpuhlicanr, and other respecta-
blh democratic journals, and with Mr. Webster,
we have fully concurred in the opinion that an
extra session of Congress should be averted,
if pu-iible to do so, with due regard to the pub-
lic interests. We have, however, on several
occasions, and as early as December last, ex-
pressed our apprehension that the conduct of the
expiring ilynaiyty would render an early convo-
cation of Congress absolutely necessary. The
experience of the winter, thus far, has strength-
ened our impressions. The efforts of nearly
every democratic member of Congress have
been directed to the passage of such measures
at this session as would obviate the necessity of
new legislation before the next regular meeting
of Congress; but in vain. The Loco-focos
have been as obstinate and perverse, as they are
obdurate In reference to all the crying wants of
Sthe country. They have resisted or impeded
every democratic measure, and wasted more
than two-thirds of the session in passing in one
branch a five million Treasury note bill, and in
the other, in ena,-:i.iri- a prospective pre-emption
law not at present called for, or necessary. All
bill,, amendments, or motions of relief, they
have invariably voted down or refused to take up.
Thi Loco-foco ptnt going out, know very well
that, they will leave behind them an exhausted
Treasury, a decreasing revenue, and millions of
suspended ippropriiiii., unsettled claims, and
dead debt. The liabilities of the Government,
ar,,,rdtia to Mr. Barnard's estimate, are $40,-
380,000! And with a full knowledge of all this
indebtedness, with a full knowledge of the ad-
ditional exactions of specie under the Sub-Trea-
sury law, and of the fact that five millions of re-
venue is still to be cut off within the next
twelve months by the operations of the compro-
mise act, what do they propose ? What will

they will probably expend two millions before
the 4th of March, so that Mr. Wise's amend-
ment, which has already led some to suppose au-
thorizes five millions of Trea.ttrv notes to be
issued by the new administration, in reality au-
ihirizes n-il more than two millions; an amount
which would not last more than a month. But

rent expenses. As forAmerican credit, at home
and abroad, it has received a hock from n A which
scarce half a century will relieve it. Nor is this
paraly i' confined merely toour fiscal and com-
mercial affairs. It extends to our arms and de-
fences. OurArmy is neatly wholly absorhc-d in
the swamps of Florida-our Navy is but a spec-
tre on the sea, while in scarcely an instance are
our coast defences in a condition to repel the in-
vasion of an enemy. Great Britain knows all
this, and lenc -eiztes and searches our vessels
with indifference, pushes on her settlements in
Oreg,.n wih intimpunity, and laughs al our de-
mands upon her to settle the Nurtht-a'tern boun-
dary of MNlain,, and the Nurtlhi-rni boundary line
of Wiskonsan. Have we no sagacity, no re-
sources, no patriotism ?
It is in the power of Congress to restore confi-
dence, i,-.-',la,, the curry nnry, lay a tax for ade-
quate revenue, pay oflt ihe public debt created by
Mr. Van Buren, re-burnish and replenish our
arms and ammunition, maintain our national
rights, and re-animate the Republic in such a
manner that, iftranquility and pr.,osp-ril are not
fully restored and maintained, it will be no fault
of the Government. Will Congress do it thih
The way for a beginning at least, to a,':om-
plish some of these benefits, is clear. It is as
clear to the present Congress as it possibly may
be to the next. If it is not seen and pursued, it
is to be attributed to the blindness of faction,
and the perverseness of Loco-foeoism.
Past experience admonishes us that little
is to be hoped for from the existing Congress-
much less can be expected from the present Ex-
ecutive. The will of the people cannot be ex-
ecuted until both these obstructions have passed
away. The moment they are removed, there-
fore, is it not proper that immediate steps should
be taken, to give to the country as soon as pos-
sible whatever benefits are to be derived from
the great and radical changes in the men, men-
mures, and policy of the Government which the
late elections indicated 7
It will be for President Harrison and his Cabi-
net to determine whether an extra session should
be called. We have no doubt they will weigh
well the arguments for and against such a step.
And if the inconvenience, the expense, and the
danger either of precipitating legislation or of
doing nothing, with other reasons calculated to
raise doubt, outweigh those which grow out of
the necessities of the Treasury and the expec-
tations of the country, then, we trust, indeed
expect that no extra session will be called. But
if, on the contrary, the condition of the
Treasury, the burdens of the Sub-Treasury op-
erations, the state ofthe currency, &c., &c., &c.,
are found to require new legislation, we Lcannot
doubt but that Congress will be convoked at an
early day. For ourselves, we are content to
leave the whole question to Gen. Harrison and
his Cabinet, in whose justice and wisdom we
have entire confidence, and we are disposed to
leavetheir judgment to be made upon the facts
and the reasons they shall discover for them-
selves, without any reference whatever to news-
THE CLAMOR ABOUT PROSCRIPTION.
The Official organ parades, in an editorial ar-
ticle, an extract from a recent speech of Senator
Tappan, making, besides many unfounded and
insolent insinuations against Mr. CLAY, the fol-
"We have heard the Senanir describe, in his gra-
phic way, how the next Administration would make
a clear sweep of all office-holders, with probably no
There is not a particle of truth in this state-
ment. Mr. Clay did not make the declaration
here attributed to him, nor any thing like it. It
is one of the numberless misrepresentations
which the Globe puts forth editorially, of the re-
marks of Senators-and Mr. Tappan has adopt-
ed it from that polluted source. Mr. Clay had,
in the course of his speech on the repeal of the
Sub-treasury, casually referred to the reports that
the Administration party designed to prolong
their patronage and power after the fourth of
March next, by means of resignations on the
part of those whore terms are to expire soon
after that day, and by prematurely filling up other
offices; and, he said, that if the Senators on
the other side flattered themselves with the idea
that General Harrison would be prevented by
any such contrivances from execising his consti-
tutional rights, and being actually President
from the 4th of March next, they would probably
find themselves mistaken. With regard to the
removal of subordinates, who have been attend-
ing to the proper business of their offices, he
spoke in such terms as to call forth from Mr.
BUCHANAN a compliment to his liberality.
It is, however, d Jif- i'._ to find the conductors
and contributors of the Globe, Loco-foco Sena-
tors, and other spoilsmen raising their hands
and voices in holy horror against "removals."
To refresh the memories of these persons and
to show the country what reason they have .
,ii'i.ii. jn, it aid'un,?,', auil iwilhi what grace they
can, under any circumstances, cry out "pro
scription," we present a few extracts, taken at
random from the paper which was their official
organ in 1829.
Hear how one of these writers (probably
Amos Kendall himself) urged the necessity of
making "a clear sweep of all office holders."
"One of the duties imposed on the President Elect
is, to see that the laws are faithfully executed. For
this he is responsible to the people. How can we ex-
pect that duty to be faithfully done, if he retains in
office the partisans and retainers of Mr. Clay 1
We ask any man of common sense, whether a
friend of General Jackson, who has promoted his elec-
tion, under a solemn pledge to the people that the
public abuses will be corrected under his Administra-
tion, will not be more likely to aid in reforming those
abuses, than a partisan of Mr. CrAY, wiho has opposed
iit ,ti t,., .:F-r General Jackson, under a pledge to the
people that there were no abuses to correct I"
Observe again how the same organ expre.es
surprise that any one should doubt whether
there would be a general removal.

l.'.e.inrg the President to be able to work that efficient

"We expect him to extend this salutary system of
reform to every branch of the Government."
"He has been selected by the people under the hope
that he will do so."
The following exquisite specimen of delicacy
and modesty is a genuine extract from a speech
of the Hon THOMAS H. BENTON, actually de-
livered in the Senate of the United States a few
days ago, and published in the Globe of Satur-
"Mr. President, you may recollect the part
which it fell upon ME to sustain, during the

DOINGS IN FLORIDA.
ST. AUGUSTiNE, E. Forida,
January 29, 1841.
THoMAs ALLEN, ESa.
Omu Territory, which has already been cruelly and
irreparably injured by the misrule of the administra-
tion of the greatest and best," and that of his" foot-
step" successor, has been of late, and now is, in a state
of great agitation and excitement, (especially the
Eastern portion of it,) in consequence of well authen-
ticated reports which are current among us-that it is
determined upon by Mr. Van Buren and his advisers,
(as if poor Florida had not already received more than
su fiteuii of enil at their kands) to fasten upon her
t hi r payitig curse, in the shape of a treaty of peace"
with the Indians, by which these devils in human
at1i11, some of whose hands are, at the very moment I
am writing, reeking with the blood of our slaughtered
women and children, are to be permanently located
upon a ?l,i. to remove them from which, has cost the
nation untold millions of money, and what is of far
greater importance, led to that which will prove, if the
now indicated policy of the present administration is
carried ,,ut, a useless and wanton waste of human life
Against a measure so fraught with ruin to Florida-
-so entirely destructive of the little hope by which her
ciitzet have been sustained under their protracted
and multiplied sufferings, as well as hostile to the true
interests of the United States, they will and must re-
monstrate in the strongest and most emphatic manner,
to :hie power itself, which meditates the evil; and
ihuulil their remonstrance be unheeded, their dernier
reliance must be upon an appeal to the Senate--that
sheet-anchor of the Government-and that body will,
we may not doubt, interpose to save us. On the score
of interest alone, this measure is wholly objectionable;
but ti t re a.re numerous other outweighing considera-
"imn t %isi;n_, in the case which should consign it to
utter i prol.i.-.n It proposes to cede to the savages
a large, and some of the fairest portion, at least as far
as chliniie is concerned, of the Territory; and there-
by st'iahlis-h upon our exposed seaboard frontier a popu-
lation which has never entertained towards the Ame-
ricans, as a nation, aught like genuine kindness of
feeling--a feeling not at all likely to be augmented
(even should they consent temporarily to suspend overt
acts of hostility) by the recollection of their present re-
lations with us. It seems to me that thus to locate
such a population, will be a course not only wholly at
war with sound policy, but inconsistent with common
discretion, as it regards our future intercourse with
the nations who hold sovereignty over the neighbor-
ing islands; and at the same time entail upon our con-
tiguous border settlement a condition of embarrassing
and painful insecurity. The ill-blood created by the
present struggle will continue until our generation
shall have passed away; and as well might we look
fur h1iarin,.,nrouu union 1, ia,,n rT.itlrtil- hy nutdrt" the
in ;j-ti ol.p.,irr
tween the inhabitants of the country and those by
whom their homes have been made desolate, and their
families in cold blood butchered. To talk, then, of
peace, as a condition of things likely to endure, while
the Indians remain in the country, is worse than idle,
and bespeaks either a gross ignorance of human na-
ture, and especially|of the character of the savage, or a
most reprehensible disregard of the baleful conse-
quences which must inevitably result from any mea-
sure short of their absolute and entire removal. That
to such ignorance, the opposite policy in view is attri-
butable, I, for one, will not believe; for, if Mr. Van
Buren is not, by his own personal experience, enlight-
ened upon the subject, he has about him those who
know and can point out its utter madness and folly ;
and I can, therefore, discover but one rational way
to explain it-it is, nevertheless, one which however
litle, rhlil. l- to him it ni.iy be, I am compelled, by the
force of facts, to adopt, namely: That his project of
treaty and peace with the Seminoles, is designed as
an iiil.oisture upin the pci,[e ,,fthe 1n1ro.il SLatr, by
which he hopes to secure to himself the crerlit ofrlos-
ing an expensive and disgraceful war, at the moment
hie is going out of power, "by a false peace"--a peace
which he well knows will exist only in name--and in-
volve the new administration in the odium of renew-
ing hostilities, which will, in truth, have never ceased.
Bosrt.N, Fetruary ti, 1841
I was plea-'l thll the remarks of Mr. Cushing re-
lative to the tariff, and my views are ip unison with
his in wishing for a discriminating tariff, not a high
protective tariff with extravagant duties, for the pro-
tection of one class of manufactures to the manifest
injury of another class, but a tariff that will give equal
protection to all the diversified interests of every sec-
tion of this country. We ask not for a tariff that will
give revenue to exceed the wants of the Genieral Go-
vernment, for we deprecate a distribution of t ihe sur-
plus moneys among the States, but revenue that l Will
meet only the wants of the Government, rnoithing
more. I am satisfied that duties must he laid ere long
on either luxuries or necessaries, or both, as it i appi-
rent to every observer that the revenue from customs
under the Compromise act will fall far short of the ac-
tual and necessary expenses of the Government.-
With these views, Iamn of th ,,I,,n,..n that a Jidcnrii-
nating duty of twenty per i:en tu,, -lih.iiilil be IVI-il .,r
silk hats, silk bonnets, silk dr, -, ,, s.lk para.ols and
umbrellas, believing the manufacturer of these several
articles ought to be protected from foreign competition,
with the same justness as well as the wool, sugar and
cotton grower. A like duty should be imposed on
gunny-cloth, immense quantities of which are now
imported, and used exclusively for bagging cotton, to
the manifest injury of the Kentucky manufacturer.-
The tariff law of 1832 imposed a duty of 3 1-2 cents
per square yard on cotton bagging without regard to
weight, width or quality, if suitable for and used for
cotton bagging. At the time of the passage of this
act, gunny-cloth, (which is made of jute, a species of
grass of the East Indies,) was not known in commerce
as cotton bagging, consequently it has been decided in
our courts as free of duty, although it is suitable for,
and used exclusively for bagging cotton. Crude salt-
petre should be taxed a like duty, and for similar rea-
sons, as it is imported in a crude state (so decided in
our courts) nearly equal to the best of American re-
fined. The muslin de lanes of France, which are
composed wholly of combed wool, should pay the
same rate of duty of the muslin de laWes of Eni.I ,n d
which contain a moiety of cotton.
There are many perplexing questions involved in
the phraseology of the Compromise act in relation to
worsted goods, and therefore a revision of the tariff
would be not only satisfactory to the merchant,
but of much pecuniary interest to the Govern-
ment. For instance, the Compromise act makes free
of duty the following, to wit: "bleached and un-
bleached linen, table linen, linen napkins, and linen
cambrics, and worsted stuff goods, shawls, and other
manufactures of silk and worsted, manufactures of
silk, or of which silk shall be the component material
of chief value, coming from this side of the Cape of
G.od Hope, except sewing silk." Now, shalloons com-
posed entirely of combed wool are admitted entry free.
Why ? because they are known in mercantile parlance
as worsted stuff goods. Serges, on the contrary, com-
posed of the same material are dutiable because not
known in mercantile phraseology as worsted stuff
goods. Worsted damask table-covers are liable to the
woollens duty, while worsted damask in the piece is
free of duty. Worsted and linen hearth-rugs, sealots,
&c., are charged with a duty of 15 per centum asa
non enumerated article, (by decision of court) while
carpet bags of the same materials are liable to the
woollens duty. Silk twist is free osfduty because our
District Court has decided that it is not sewing silk,
which is the only exception in said act. Shawls of
most all descriptions under this act are made free of
duty, because the merchant ordersthe manufacturer to
make silk the component part of the article, and which
will constitute the chief value. The cotton grower
and manufacturer will be benefitted should a duty be
levied on both silks and linens, as its use would be as-
The tariff needs a revision from the fact that the
Compromise act omitted to make the same reduction on
bounties paid on refined sugar and domestic spirits, ex-
ported, as on the raw material when imported. It has
been ascertained tha had the same *reduction taken
place in the rate of drawback, as in the rate of duty on
sugar in the raw state, a saving would have been made
in ;one year to the United States of about $80,000
in this one point on sugar alone.

PHILADELPHIA, February 9, 1841.
U. S. Bank stock sold to-day at 30 cash. Exchange
on New York from 4 to 5 per cent. premium; specie
about the same.
As the U. S. Bank now receives only her own
notes and specie in payment of debts due her, they
will all soon be redeemed, and are now, in conse-
quence, nearly or quite as good as those of the other
banks. This is a measure ofjustice to the note hol-
ders and saves them from the tender mercies of the
brokers who would be very glad to depreciate the notes
and buy them up at tO per cent discount.
There was a meeting of the delegates from the dif-
ferent city and county banks on Monday evening, at
which measures were adopted for regulating the busi-
ness of the banks with each other, settling balances,
&c. It was %here determined, as I learn, to pursue a
restrictive policy and thereby prepare for a resumption
at as early a day as practicable. This policy will of
course have a tendency to lessen the amount of oat
circulating medium, now nearly reduced to a specie
basis. It may be that when we get quite down to
this basis-when not a dollar of paper can be found,
we may be "covered with blessings and benefits;" but
I cannot perceive, as we have descended in the scale,
that contraction has brought with it any extraordinary
" blessings and benefits" either to the rich or to the
poor, certainly not the latter; but, on the contrary, it is
evident to all that it has produced an almost total stag-

THE AMISTAD CASE.
This case, we understand, is to be argued before the
U. S. Supreme Court about the middle of the present
Two long articles have appeared in the Globe upon
the subject. In the last one, copied from the New
York Evening Post, is contained the following sen-
"Mr. Calderon, in his first letter, on the 6th Sept ,
insists on the treaty, while M. de Argaiz says in so
many words, in his letter of the 26th November, 'Be
it recollected that the Legation of Spain does no de-
mand the delivery of SLAVES but ASSASSINS.' "
The language of Mr. d'Argaiz was, "porque es
precise no olvidar que Ila Legacion de Espana no pide
la extradicion de esclavos sino la de asesinos." And
would not this be the just translation I viz: "it must
not be forgotten that the Legation of Spain does not
ask the extradition of slaves, but that of murderers."
The term extradition is technical: of a ery different
meaning from delivery, and seems to exclude the idea
of property. It would be well to apprehend correctly
the language ofthe Spanish ministers; ibeforr an argu-
ment is based upon it. We ,.bc rve that several appa-
rent errors in the translation of the Spanish document
have been elsewhere pointed out.
