BOSTON. -
MONDAYV MORNING, JANUARY 1; 1837'.

SThe Legislqture.-In the House of Representatives,
on Saturtidy, the bill to authorize the Treasurer of the
Commonwealth to receive the State's proportion of the
aurplisv &veu, a a passed to be eang"oe4 by large
majority.
Legislature of'JVew Hampshire.-The New Hamp-,
shire Legislature adjourned on Saturday last, after *
session offifty four days-the longest session since the
adoption of the -constitution. Much o the time has
been occupied in the discussion of the bill for distribut-
ing among the towns, the State's dividend of the sur-
plus revenue. The principle of distribution finally a.
greed on is a compound ratio of-the numbers of polls;
and the valuation of the respective towns.

jVew Hampshire.-The Seriate of New Hampshire
on Friday last, concurred with the House of Represen-
tatives in a, resolution for terminating the session on
Saturday. A bill had passed the House, and has since
probably passed the Senate, containing the following"
provisions, viz: .That no bank in the State shall, after
the first day of.July next, issue ahy bill of a less de-
nomination than $2, and that it shall be. 'unlawful for
any person to offer or receive bank notes of a less de-
nomination than-2, after the 1stof January, 1838. It
also provides that no bank shall issue any note of a less
denomination than $3, after July 1, 1838, and that they
shall not circulate after January 1, 1839. The bill fur-
ther provides that no bank shall put in circulation any
bill between the denominations of $3 and $5, $5 and
$10, or between $10 and $20. Thus much the Legis-
lature of New Hampshire are willing to do, in adopt-
ing Andrew Jackson's theory of a specie currency-
enough to cause much inconvenience and to do no
good, by rendering entirely unproductive a few hun-
dred thousand dollars of active capital.-

Aolitionism in JYew Hampshire.-The subject of
Abolition having been referred in the New Hampshire
Legislature to a committee of the House of Represen-
tatives, they made a report, concluding with a recm.
mendationa of the following resolutions.
Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives in General Court convened, That we recog-
nize the constitutional right of the several States of the
SUnion to exercise exclusive jurisdiction within their
own limits, on the subject of domestic slavery.
Be it further resolved, That Congress cannot with.
put a violation.of the public faith, abolish slavery in
the District of Columbia, unless upon the request of
the citizens of that District, and of the States by whom
that tearitory wan ceded to the General Government.
Be it further resolved, That as the Union of the States
can only be maintained by abstaining from all inteffer-
ence with the laws, domestic policy, and peculiar in.
terests of every other State, the conduct of those who
would coerce our fellow citizens in other States into.
abolition of slavery, by inflanmatory appeals address.
ed to the fears of the masters and the passions of the
slaves, is in the -highest degree censurable, as tending
to alienate one.portion of our countrymen from anoth-
er, and to introduce discord into our sister States, and
as a violation of that spirit of compromise in which the
constitution was framed,and a due observance of which
is necessary 'to the safety of the Union.
Be it further :resolved, That we concur with the lib-
eral, just and (philanthropic views on this subject,, con-
tained in 'the ,Message of his Excellency the Governor
df.iune last.
Be it further resolved, That the Governor be request-
ed to transmit a copy of this Report and Resolutions,
to the Executives of each of the States of the Union,
and to-each of our Senators and Representatives in
*Congress.
These resolutions were taken into discussion in the
House on Wednesday last, and Mr. Eastman moved a
substitute, which after debate was rejected. The reso-
lutions were finallyadopted as originally reported; the
first by 168 yeas to 6 nays ; the second by yeas 124,
nays 21 ; and the three others by yeas 136, nays 14.
In the Senate tihe resolutions were referred to a com-
mittee, who reportted them without amendment, and
they were adopted yeas II, nay 1.
PennslZvania.-The Pennsylvania-House of Repre-
sentatiires, on the 10th inst. ballotted five times for a
Treasurer, without muiking a choice. The votes, on the
fifth ballot, were, for Joseph Lawrence, the present
Treasarer,35; Dariiel Sturgeon, 46; A. Mahon, 9; A.
H. Reed,.1'7.; G.D. Eipsy, 16 ; and nine scattering.
Senators appointed by the State Ezeeutive.-The con-
stitution of the United States provides, that "if vacan-
-cies happen In :the Senat;e, by resignation or otherwise,
during the reoeas of th~e Legislature of any State, the
Executive thereoff may make temporary appointments,
until ute next eetinrg of the Legislature, which shall
then fil such vacancies:." Under this provision of the
constitution, ahe Gov( rnor of Maine appointed Judge
Dana -to fill the vacanc y occasioned by the resignation
of Mlr. She pley, and h e took his seat as a member of
the Senate, seea after the commencement of the ses-


sion. The 'Legislature of Maine has since met. We
should like -to 3e infor med by what authority Mr. Dana
.holds his seat, since lihe meeting of the Legislature,
whose .duty it s to fill the vacancy by a permanent ap-
pointment.
R. M. Yovrg, Esq. a Van Buren man, is elected a
.Senator in 'Covgress f br 1llinois, and not Mr.Davidson.,
as reported. 'The latt er was lately chosen Piesident of
the Senate of Illinois.
STial of ike Whites..-The second trial of Richard H.
White, at Waishingtoi i,for burning the Treasury, closed
at 1 o'clock *cn Thurs day last,and the jury retired. The
Court proceeded to thLe trial of Henry White. The cor-

TUESDAY MOURNING, JANUARY 17, 1837. 13

The Bill to reduce the Tarvf.-,The correspondent
of the NewYork Courier and Enquirer at Washington,,,
gives the following account of the proceedings on this?
bill. ,
"Yesterday the Committee of Ways and,Means, or
rather, a majority of that Committee, made their.long
expected tariff report. There was no minority report-
Mr.Lawrence of Boston, who is among the bestinform.-
ed and most practical men in Congress on this subject,
made a bold and manly resistance. He is one of the
minority -in the Committee, which minority consists of
Mr. Lawrence, Mr. Corwin and Mr. Ingersoll. Mr.
Lawrence moved an indefinite 'postponement of the
bill. In the 'progress of hiis remarks, he was several'
times interrupted on points of- ordex-. The Van BurenL
party felt the force of "what he said; and feeling alarnm-
ed at the probable consequences of his argument going a
forth to the nation, they endeavored to gag, him down ;
and in the event-of that failing, they hoped so to em-
barrass and worry him, as to produce the same results
in a different way. But a Calmness and equanimity of,.
te iper, for which he is remarkable, bore him most tri- i
umphantly through' the tempest 'they endeavored to,
raise. When the IHouse adjourned no question was'
taken. e s
"This morning Mr. Corwin of' Ohio -renewed the de- 4
bate in favor of Mr. Lawrence's motion for indefinite-,,
postponement. This speech occupied-about two hours-.
During the first hour it was profound and logical, with. ,
soqate,occasional fights, of fncy most impressively de-i'
livered. His manner;--his style ;--his argument would '
have done honor to any deliberative body. Since I have-
been in Washington, I have not heard a more finished'
'piece of eloquence on the floor of' either branch ofr
Congress. After demolishing Mr. Cambreleng (I use
the word demolish because 1 have no other word that,
will convey my idea, unless the fastidious Mr. Hamer 1
will kindly supply me with one) by force of argument,
he continued his remarks in a vein of ridicule and sar- '
casm, that amazed even some of the orthodox, causingr,
throughout the house, peals of laughter. Nor didPres- ;
ident Jackson escape. He compared sod much of the :'
annual Message of last year, as related to the compro- .
niise bill, with the report of the Committee of Ways and '
bleans,.now under consideration, and a mighty clash- i.
ing the comparison exhibited.
The same writer remarks as follows upon the failure
of the motion to lay the bill on the table:
"In the opinion of many, this is a "premonitory symp-
tom," as to the fate of the 'bill. At any rate, it indi- ?
cates the influence of Mr. Muhlenbergh,and is not aus-
picious, (so far as he and his friends are concerned) as f
to his obtaininga seat in the next cabinet. The real,
orthodox VanBuren party are in high glee with the .
vote taken today. They consider it certain that the
whole tariff will be reduced. A congratulate Rhode
Island, Connecticut and Pennsylvania on the prospects
which are beginning to dawn upon their home indus-
try. Let them adhere to' the discipline of the party,,
and'the whole manufacturing interest of the country
will be prostrated in a few months."
Another letter to the editors of the Courier and En-
quirer, says that Mr. Hannegan's amendment, which
was smuggled in at the moment of adjournment, and
ordered to be printed without being read, embraces in
substance Mr. Walker's land bill, reported d in the Sen-
ate.- The object of the amendment is to purchase the'
support of the West, by a sacrifice of the public I and
system.
This writer states that Reuben M. Whitney ha, -been
called before the- Deposite Bank Committee, a nd has
refused so far to answer any questions.
Congress.-In the Senate, on Wednesday the 11th
instant, Mr. Walker offered 'a resolution, declaring
it to be expedient ahd proper to acknc ,wledge the
independence of Texas. The resolution lies one day
on the table. Mr. Davis offered a resoli ition instruct-
ingthe Committee on Commerce to i squiree into the
expediency of making some provision for the nautical
education of American seamen. The bills making pro-
vision for compensation for horses, and other property
lost in the military service, and ma' ing appropriations
for pensions for the year 1837, we'-re read a third time
and passed.
The discussion of the resoluti' an for rescinding the
Treasury circular was resumed.. Mr. Clay addressed
the Senate in support of the re solution. Mr. Ruggles
made a few remarks in reply Mr. Niles moved that
the resolution be referred to the Committee on Public
Lands. Mr. Calhoun and 'Mr. Webster suggested the
propriety'of referring to th e Committee on Finance, if
to any committee. Mr. Bl ack and Mr. Clay opposed
the reference. The ques" ion being taken, the whole
subject was referred to tb .e Committee on Public'Lands
by the following vote.
YEAs-Messrs. Benl ,on, Brown, Buchanan, Dana,
Ewing, of Illinois, Ful ton, Grundy, Hubbard, King, of
Ala., King, of Geo..L ,inn, Niles, Page,Rives, Robinson,
Ruggles, Strange, allmadge, Walker, Wall, White,
Wright-22.
NAYs-Messrs. B ayard, Black, Calhoun, Clay, Crit-
tenden, Davis, Hen drinks, Kent, Knight, Moore, Nich-
olas, Prentiss, Pree .ton, Robbins Sevier, Swift, Tipton,
Tomlinson, Webs ,ter-19.
So the whole sa object of the Treasury order, of July,
1836, was referr ed to thle Committee on Public Lands.
After a short Executive session, the Senate adj.


In the Hous,' of Representatives-
Mr. Cambr eleng, from the Committee of Ways and
Means, repo rted a bill, with an accompanying report,
to reduce th,' revenue -of the United States to the wants
of the Gov, 2rnment.
The bill was read as follows:
A Bill to reduce the revenue of the United States to
the wants of the Government.
Be it enacted, S4c. That, from and after the 30th day
of Sept .ember next, in all cases where duties are im-
posed on foreign imports, by the act of the 14th of July,
1832. entitled" An act to alter and amend the several
acts imposing duties on imports," or by any other act,
Sa0il exceed twenty per centum on the value thereof,
o e-ti'ird part of such excess shall be deducted; from
F nd afit er the 31st of March, 1838, one-half of the resi-
due of such excess shall be deducted: and on the 30th
Septem hber, 1838, the other half shall be deducted: any
thing in the act of the 2d of March, 1833, -to the con-
trary not withstanding.
Sec. 2.. lnd be it further enacted, That, from and af-
ter the 30th of September next, the duties on salt and
coal shall be ', and the same are hereby, repealed.
Mr. Owen, moved that the Report be read, which
was agreed to.
The same h. Waving been read accordingly, the bill was
read a second time.
Whereupon, Mr. Cambreleng moved to commit the
same to the Coi nmittee of the Whole House on the
state of the Union" ', and that the bill,'report, and tabular
statements accomj. anying the same, be printed.
.Mr. Lawrence rose and said, that, as one of the
Committee of Wayt and Means, and as one of the mi-
nnritv nf that 'onmin ittee on this subject, he hoped he


protectedd articles,) in eighteen months from this time-
' -reduction which would otherwise be made in five
SyOars and a half.
B .Ar. A. Mann rose to a question. of order, and asked
Sif, n the question of commitment, it was in order to go
iaFw a regular debate. .
SXMr. Lawrence asked that he miiLht be permitted to
p Po.aeed a few moments longer. He wished to make
a ag4ppeal to some of the members of this House. He
wihed to appeal to the representatives of the State 6f
Pe hsylvania; and he did so for the purpose of ascer-
\ taiang whether this-was, or was not, a party measure.
S*1fc (said Mr.,L.) I hope itiasnot. Buti appeal to the
re*lsentatives from the State of Pennsylvania, and I
aslt them if they are ready to- sanction the doctrines.
cot-e.ined in this bill and report. I appeal to the rep-
;reseJtatives froffi the State of New York, and I appeal
,to them to say whether the citizens of the State of
''ew 'York are in favor of this system ?- Sir, I cannot
believe it. I know there are many gentlemen, mem-
ber, of this House, in favor of it; Lut, so far a l know,
0 1 fel passred that the majority of the People of the.
,iState of New York will not sustain it,
P Iapopeal to the representatives from the State of Ohio,.
'an4 all the grain-growing States of the West, to.say ff,
they have no interest in this question ? .s there a gen..
tleiaaa here, truly representing the views of his con-
stitulents, who will say that he is willing to place the
whole industry of the country on the same foundation
as th* industry of the nations of Europe is placed? No,
sir, I believe no such thing.
I appeal to the representatives of New England, in
.whole and not in part. 1I appeal to the representatives '
from.,Connecticut in particular, as forming a portion of
the Administration party here, to say whether they
dare go home to their constituents with this report in
their hands, and tell them "' this is our doctrine, we
will stand or fall by' it." -Sir,, they would not be sus-
tainedfor a moment; I say, and when'I appeal to the
reprewintatives of New England, I know there is a di-
versity of opinion amongst them, but I say there is no
'difference amongst them on this point; that is to say,
that this sudden and extraordinary reduction at this
time, and under these circumstances, without any/shad-
ow ofyaplea for it, will never be sustained. There is
no plea; for what says the Secretary of the Treasury?
He sayi that the revenue will be short during the pres-
ent yeai. The Secretary says, and he is surely" good
authority, that the revenue, after the appropriations
which may be expected to take effect before the 31st- of
December next, will be .about three millions short.-
Whbatan we know about the revenue of 1838? Who
knows-what we shall receive from customs, or from
the pult4 lands ? Who can tell what's to happen in a
year friM this time ? No man can say with certainty.
Wh-is this bill brought forward at this time*? There
is no surplus now. We do not expect there will be any
at the eid of the year. I know not what effect the bill
is intended to have. I hope that, next to passing it, the
object is not to send it out to the country to destroy the
confidence already, so much impaired. Itstrikes at the
interest of the whole country. Its effect. will be to
weaken the bonds of confidence and credit which bind
men together in all commercial communities. Will
any geetlemani, (I do not mean one of the committee)
-but will any gentleman of the Administration party,
from Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Hampshire,
'New Jersey, or any other State, who may know more
of this matterr than I do, -say that he will sustain it, and
that" he-blieves it to be for the interest of the country
that the ill should be broughf-forward at this time ?-
lThis may seem a light matter, but, sir, you are tamper-
ing wilt the great interests of the country. You pro-
pose to throw open your ports to all the- world; you
propose free trade on the one side, but you ask nothing
on the other. Would you export more cotton or more
tobacco, if the duty were taken off tomorrow ? Who
takes your produce ? Great Britain takes a great por-
tion of it; the continent of Europe takes some, but only
those articles which cannot be done without.
What are the duties in Great Britain on agricultural
products?' I will state a few of them. Salted beef 2|
Miats per lb; bacon 6 cents per lb.--
,he Speaker-here intimated to Mr. L. that the merits
of 'the bill were not open to discussion.
'-Mr. Lawrence inquired if it would be in order to
move that the bill be rejected, and under that motion to
proceed with his remarks
- The Speaker said it would not now be in order; that F
thea-otion would have been in order if it had been sub-
nmitted previous to the second reading of the bill.
| Mr. L. said he would be the last man in the House
t transgress the rules of the House, and that he would
nt, therefore, continue his remarks. -
"Mr. Ingersoll inquired if it was in order to move the
indefinite postponement of the bill.
The Speaker said the motion would be 'in order, and
that it would lay open to discussion the whole merits of
the bill.
Mr. Lawrence, thereupon, moved its indefinite post-
ponement.
"The Speaker said that the notion to commit would
take precedence of the motion for indefinite postpone-
merint, but that the merits of the question would still be
open to discussion.
Mr. LaWrence said he wished merely to -show this
House what effect would be produced by the passage of
this bill. He was enumerating a few of the English
Sduities on American articles-on unmanufactured tobac-
co, 67 cents per pound; on manufactured tobacco, 2
dollars per pound; on coals, 2 or $8 88 per ton; on
spermaceti candles, 56 cents per pound ; ontallow can-
dles, 14 cents per pound.
Mr. L. proceeded: 1 could, sir, go on with a cata-
logue of those articles which interfere with the inter-
'ests of Great Britain, and of the Continent. Their
duties, in effect, are prohibitory upon all such articles.
Now, if the duties are all taken off, will you export
any more than you can now? No, sir, riot of a'single
article, unless it is done by treaty. We have no trea-
ties of this kind, that I know of. How is it with cot-


ton ? 1 apprehend that the cotton growers have, sup-
posed that they held command of the market of Great
Britain and the Continent of Europe. I wish to inform
them that it is a great mistake ; that these countries
are importing cotton now from other parts of the world
besides the United States, and that to a great extent.
In India, they are increasing the quantity'as well as
d the quality of their cotton. During the last'year,
double the quantity of cotton was imported into
England from Indis, more than was imported the
previous year. At-the present time, they were import-
ing cotton from EgyptA Persia, Brazil, and other places
where it was grown.
Mr. Vanderpoel here rose, and called for the ord ers
of the day ; which motion was lost-ayes 68, noes- 74.
Mr. McKay here raised the question whether, under
the 103d rule, the bill did not require commitment.
The Speaker decided that, so far as he was able- to
.form an opinion, from the very hasty consideration. he
bad given to the subject, he should decide that the- bill
must be committed.
A lono debate followed, in which Messrs. M,.rcer,
- Mann, Reed, Thomas, Cambreleng, Ingersoll, Ilann,
Vinton, Vanderpoel, Sutherland, and Toucey too'& part.
The Speaker then assigned his reasons why ]ae was
of opinion, upon further-consideration, and con suiting
'precedents, that this bill is not of a character to bring
it under the rule that every bill imposing a t ax upon
the People shall first be discussed in Committee of the
Whole.
Mr. Boon then withdrew an appeal which he had
taken from the decision of the Chair; and


i Mr. Lawrence resumed. He was very sorry, he said
that any remarks of his should have been the cause of
-consuming so much time of the House: and nothing

was neither an 6ffice-h det nor an -bffice-see er. But
his object in addressing ih e chairman ^was to astertair,.
and let the country know,' whetherthi 1hil was or was
not a political measure. He had ha d O.pprtunity to
ascertain that fact.- I would like to- fk-oi- (said.he)
whether there is any 4oikert ofaction here, upon this
bill, -among the Administration 'pai.' Vthe country
ought to know, and to know at one, whether this be a.;
party measure or'not. I hope, si*, tat it is -*iot; For
that reason, sir, r.it was -tbast I appealed to ta BRepre-
sentatives from Conznetiuit,as uieeply'iterestei in this
question as any Slate in th Uio i--to the Repre4ntd-
tives Tfrom New Hampshire; frnoii Rh~e .tand-Afrom

porters of the protective system. I now 11 upon them
all to rise in their places an& say V heheer key are going
:for this bill; I Want the country to knr this. It is -
due to the People that they should know whether a bill
is going to pass this House by the otes those Repre- V
sentatives, which will prostrate to the arta most impor-
tant interests of the counrty.'j 1 prloqf somee prac-

the benefit of the poor. Sir, I deny thetirth of the;
proposition. 'This is a billAhe tite of which s-tould bei'.
a bilt to make THE RICH RICHER AlNixTHE POOR: 0OOER.
Mr. L. here traced the passage fasucha bit1as-this
to its probable consequences. He supposed tfe caeof
an individual in Pennsylvania, or in ConneEtictit, eBi-
gaged in manufactures, the cost of whmse- buiidhi-gs-ad:
fixtures has been ten thousand dollars, upon which (a
common case) there was a mortgage for one-half tlhe
cost. To pay off this mortgage, when hisemployment
for his machinery fails, his property is sold. Who buys
it? Is' it the poor man who purchases in such cases ?
Not at alE: but he who has redundant capital. Whiatis
now the case, Mr.,L. asked, in those parts of the country -
where pecuniary pressure is felt ? Go into your cities,
and you will find'-that the men who have a smaller a
middling- property are paying at the rate -of from 15 to
30 per 'cent. 1er annum for money. Who is it that is
reaping the profit ? Is it the poor man'? No, sir, it is the
rich capitalist, or those who are allowed to use his capi-
tal. If there was ever aw system devised on earth to
throw the property of the country into the hands of the
few at the expense of the-many, it is the present finan-
cial system of the United. States. 1 know it, sir, and I
am willing that my judgment of the matter shall go to
the, country, for every practical man will know that'
what 1 say is.true'. Ay,. air, and the bill on your table
goes to a much further extent than this, for it reachle-
the labor of the country. In one month' after the passage
of this bill,. the business of every manufacturer and
dealer in the country will be contracted. It is not the
large capitalist, protected by his money-bags, who will
feel its direct effects, but the laborer-the mechanic,
who now gets two dollars -or two dollars and a half &
day. To hinmthe employer 'says, on receiving informa-,
tion .3f the passage ofthis bill, I muststop my work!
Oh, nb! saysthe laborer,for you will take from me my
mean s of support. Well, says the employer, I will, in
order to keep 'you.atwork. give yo'u henceforth a dollar
a day instead of what; I have heretofore given you,
Gentli emen may flitter themselves that they are exempt
from t.be operations of this. bill;: bhut no man, whatever
_his co edition inlife may be,, is.beyond the deleterious
effects of this bill:ifit be-ome'-alaw. Mr. L. was sure,
he said,. that the representatives from the Western
States, =r fromnthe Southern,were not. going for this bill.
The re presentatives from the Southern States especially
would not go fbr it when the profits of their cotton crops
were already in.a process of reduction-; for, although
he kri ew thatthe. crop of this..year was a large one, the
procet(ds of that crop will~fall far shdrt of the proceeds-
of the crop--of last year. -
Mr. 'L. said 'it was not only.to protest against the prin-
ciples of thisbill -that he had risen, but to. ask of the gen-
tlome n in this House who have the power to do what
they will--t pass this bill, or to defeatit--whether this
bill was to-.be considered as a proclamation issued by
the pi-esent-dynasty in the Government;.eras adecisive
token. of the course of measures which we'have to ei-
pect at the hands of the coming Administration. For,
he d id no~ hesitate to say, if it-is produced as a party
"'teasre, it will become the, law'of the find' but, iiof, W
- 'by the aidofthe Representatives-ofPennsylvaniaNew
'Ham pshiie,;Ohio, and :Maine, whose constituents were
so deeply interested in the matter, with those from at
least a portion of the Sobuththe bill might providentially
be de-feated. But, be that as it might, it was the impera-
tive dtity of the House to declare to the country, at
once-, immediately, whether or not it was probable that
any bill like this would pasu during the present'Con-
gressx, &c. "
MX. L. concluded with a few observations on the state
of the currency of the country,. which, time does not
allow- to be reported:
Mr. Corwin, of Ohio, obtained 'the floor; but'the hour
being late,. he gave way to a motion for adjournment,
and The House adjourned.
In the-Senate, on Thlursday, several subjects which
stnmod in. order for consideration' were postponed-Mr.
CaihdobnS deposite bill to Thursday next-Mr. Walk-
er's Texas resolution to Wednesday-and the billto
limit-the sales of public lands to the-following day. The
expunging resolution was taken:up, and Mr. Benton
spoke in defence of it, and eulogized Jackson's admin-
istration, Mr. Grittenden spoke in, reply, and 'in ridi-
c ule of the servility which wouldtbe exhibited by Sen-
fLtorsin passing the resolution. Mr. Dana, of Maine,
began-a speech in favour.of the resolution, and to make
known.the expectations of his own State. Before he
Shad finished, the Senate adjourned.


In-the House of Representatives, Mr. M'Keon offer-
ed a resolution which was adopted,. instructing the
Committee on Commerce to inquire into the expedien-
cy of playing light boats on Flynn's Rolt and the
Romer) near Sandy Hook, and of publishing the charts
now in the-office" of the Superintendent of the coast
survey.
The bil'reported on Wednesday,, to reduce the Tar-
iff, was again taken -into consideration-. Mr. Corwin,
of Ohio, addressed the House in- opposition.too the bill,
in a, able speech:. Mr. Cushman, of New Hampshire,
supported the principles of the bill; and maintained that
it would be agreeable to 'his constituents.. Mr. Muh-
lenberg.moved to lay the bill on the table, Mr. Mann
mo4ed a call 'of the House, which, was agreed to-, after
which the motion to lay on the table was negatived-
yeas 94, nays 119. Mr. Halsey, of Georgia, obtained
the-floor, and after receiving an amendment offered by
Mr. Hannegan, and,.ordering it to be .printed, the
House. adjourned. The Tariff bill' will not again come
up in the orders of the-day until- Tuesday.
hi the Senate qn Friday, Jan. t3tlh, the Chair pre
sented the credentials of Thomas Clayton, elected a
Senator from Delaware, to fill the vacancy occasioned
by the -resignation, of J. M. Clayton.. Mr. Hubbard,
from the Committee on C4aims,'repprted a bill, appro-
priating $5000 to be paid to Capt. Allen, as compensa-
tionafor bringing Ge.n;.,Lafayette -and his family to this

timated surplus of $44,500,000. This surplus is stated
to have'been caused by the policy heretofore pursued
of revising or preparing the tariff of duties, without
any regard to the wants.of the Treasury. It gives en
coleur deorose, in Mr. C 's best style, a picture of the
metallic condition of the country now,: as contrasted
with what it had been-laments the extension of the
paper system, and goes into a statement of imports and
exports; but which, although given in figures--which,
it is proverbially said, cannot lie, yet ,myimpression is,
that some of his-statements are incorrect-; at all'events,.
former similar glowing statements, as to commerce and ,
tonnage, are not forgotteri, as having been notoriously
sent forth in error; and my-faith in matters emanating
SfronM a partisan of Mr. C.'s character, is not strong..
'He, adverts to the necessity of making these restric- ...
tions with a most hypocritical whine, and gives ais con-,
solation to the various interests which he is about to -.
destroy, one after the other ; running, free trade mad,,
his general reasoning is, that in:the home consumption
most of them will find a sufficient and the best protec-
tinn! and giving a general review.-of our increased
trade, resources and enterprise, he is for returning to-
the' old system.of credit duties: if I understand the

breleng's project; and the only way by which the party
-men ol tle West could b&mind'ced to-back it with their-
votes, was by having someNing in the shape of a boon. -
A promisewas held out to thek,tthat their favoritee meas-
dre, the Land Bill, either of %he 'Houaesorhe Senate -
should be incorporated with thle Tariff Bifl, ifthey
would support it. Here is a new-theme for meditation,
and a new cause. for speechifying."'. The provisions of,.
the Senate Bill,'t think, I have'before transmitted to
you; but, lest I should not have done sodi preset them -
in a very brief epit9o4e. 1
Sec. lst provides, that all: sales of-the public-lands
shall be governed by the existing laws, wbhes net in-
consistent with the restrictioftns au regulations of this
Bill.
Sec. 2d provides, that no' one; shall be permitted to ..
purchase by public entry or at auction, more than two
,sections. -
Sec. 3d provides, that-if a purcatser has erected a
dwelling house and c eared or cultivated one eighth of,
"the land at any time within five years,b e may procure a
patent thefefor; otherwise it-will be forfeite,d-to: the U.
'S., except in cases of deAtb,, when it-imextended to six
years from the date of the' reeeipt; and anv rle, or
mortgage, or contract for either before ,the etaanation ,
of the patent, shall be null and void,.
See. 4th provides, that occupiers of land' priot to the
Ist December, 1836, proving occupation by4twocempe-
tent witnesses, shall have a pPe-emption- right-, o the
extent of one quarter section,
Sec. 5th allows the owner ofia.farm or plantation to
enter adjoining land, subject only to private entry, to
the extent of a section ; provided that it be not for sale':-
or speculation. He is also beund by the: estriction of
the 3d section in relation to patents and forfeitures.
Sec. empowers Registers or Receivers to administer
oath or affiranation.
Sec. 7 embraces several provisions, t3a of wii h- are
of public importance:
First--That the smallest subdivision is to be in quar-
ter, quarter sections. .
Secondly-That all -lands of U;, S. sold hereafter, shall
.be liable to taxation by.State autfhoriy fiom the iame of '

as is doubtless mosfitting, should come the blow, that,-
-is to take away the earnings of industry, deprive thou-.
sands of their future means of living, and inr a word,
by prostrating all the great interests of the cauntry,add -
to the panic and destruction of all confidence, which -
now pervades the commercial communities of the* U, ;
States.. .-" '
I pass by the recent excitement as to Abolition-also
the further important move by Mr. Walker today, to
recognize the independence of Texas--and detailwhat L
occurred, as possessing that absorbing interest into..
which all other subjects must comparatively merge.
Mr. Cambreleng reported the long expected project,
as entitled, "an act to reduce the revenue of the United -
States to the wants ot Government," accompanied by
a report, and some tabular statements. The .bill pro-
vides, "that On and- after the 30th of September next,
on so much of the duties on imports as shall exceed 20
per cent. ad valorem, one-third of such excess-shall be
deducted, one-half on the 31st of Marzh, 1838, and the
remaining half on the 30th of September,-1838. Sec.-
tion 2d provides that, "on and after the 30th of Sept
tember next, the duty on oal and salt shall be entirely
repealed." .
The bill was read twice, as was declared by thi Speak-
er-although that is a point yet in dispute, anl much
rests on it--after which there was a general call for the
reading of the report, which was proceeded.with.
Jn substance, it states the balanceon hand in the

t-. THIRD ANNI4AL REPORT OF THE MANA.
)n GERS or T-zHBOT ON ASYLUM AND FARM SCHOOL.
e The Managers of the above Institution respectfully
submit to'the Corporation the following Report:
r- The present Board of Managers was elected in the
to month of J'une last, and this report commences with
as that period.
.d The objects of the Institution are presumed to be
as well understood. To rescue from the ills and the temp-
t. -tations of poverty and neglect those who have been left
e. without -a parent's care; to reclaim from moral expo-
n sure those who are, treading the paths of danger ; to
re "place the solitary in families ;" to give to those who
n know nothing of the ties or influences of home, some
d taste and fondness for a local habitation, at the least;
e and to offer to those, whose only training would other-
)- wise have been in the walks of vice, if not of crimes
it the_greatest blessing which New England can bestow
upon her mostfavored sons, a good education, are some
e of the purposes for which the Asylum and Farm School
i- was endowed. Under the blessing of God, success.has
I, tlius far attended the exertions which have been made
s to accomplish these objects. From the monthly reports
t of the Superintendent, and from the personal exami-
y nation of the establishment on Thompion's Island, the
e Board of Managers are satisfied that there has been
1. much improvement in the character of the boys who
i have been committed to'the charge of the Institution.
- In the last report of the Superintendent, 62 boys are
- placed in thehighest or first grade, A40 in the second, 4
t in the third, and 1 in the fourth.
The number of boys on the Island at the time of the
i last report was 92; since that time 18 boys have been
r admitted and 3 withdrawn. The number on the 1st of
January, 1837, was 107; all of whom, as well as all
a other persons- connected with the establishment on the
f Island-were in good health, and there has been no death
e at the Institution since the last report was made. The
- occupations and employment of the boys vary with the
season. In, Spring, Summer and Autumn, the larger
boys, in classes, work upon the garden and farm, of
r whose labor they perform a large part. The younger
q boys have small gardens of their own, which afford
them recreation when released from school. in the
| winter season most of them attend school, where they
are instructed in the learning usually taught in our
common schools, and some of them assist in making
clothes and mending shoes. The winter evenings are
occupied with the study of Geography, and the use of
Globes; Botany, and Practical Agriculture ; Lecturing
on different subjects, Singing and Reading. The Su-
perintendent states that "every boy in the Institution
is required- to be present during the evening exercises,
if he is able, which are very pleasing to them, and
which we all enjoy very much."
^ A large number -of mulberry trees have been planted
upon the Island, and there are many silk worms at the'
establishment.- It is contemplated to improve the ad-
vantages of the location in the production of raw silk
for manufacture.
As to the success of the boys in the farming oper-
"ations, Capt. Chandler, the superintendent, says, "they
have succeeded far beyond my expectations; I think
that they have done more work, and done.-it better,
-t than the oys of their age who have been regularly
brought up to, the business in the country generally
do." And as to the comfort and contentedness of the
boys, he says, they are all comfortably -clad', with
woollen clothes, shoes, stockings and caps, and appear
-to- be as happy in their present situation as boys gen-
erally are under the paternal roof. They appreciate
their advantages, and most of them are grateful to the
benefactors of the Institution and their friends for
placing them here. The boys are well supplied with
books, and keep them in excellent order; our Liibrary
containing between 400 and 500 volumes of well selec-
ted books. 1 have also an agricultural Library con-
taining about 30 volumes, to which the boys have
access. '
Opportunities are occasionally offered to the-frie~nds
of boys at the Institutioni of visiting tl em on the Island
in the summer months;
Vrhe School is under the immediate charge of Mr.
Geporgre B. Hyde,and he as, well aasthe superintendent
and. all engaged in the establishment, are believed to
merit the continuarce. of the confidence which has
hitherto been repOsed in them. -
Durinog the ,past summer, se-'eral parties of ladies
0Aad geueneein, at the request of the board of managers,
visited Thompson's Island. At these visits there have
been many persons present, and an examination of the f
boys in their'diffevent studies has been accompanied by i
some remarks jn the objects and prospects of the Insti- r
tuition. Among those, who hiave-"thus visited the Isl- 1
and have been many strangers, who- have always ex-
pressed 'their interest and pleasure in-its objects and .i
condition.
And how should -it bme otherwise than ,an object of I
interest.? an Institution designed to rescue the desti-
tute orphan boys of our eity from vice and ruin; to
withdraw them from.scenes and associates, whose con- I
tantinating influence would quickly destroy, the per- .'
exceptions of conscience, and leave them, deprived of
That monitor, to pursue the impulses of passions which I
inevitably destroy their victims. Manyare the worthy I
objects of the charitable institutions among us: our
Hospitals relieve the sufferings of the sick, and restore i
them to health aad .usefulness; they .are a blessing -
which may be-pequiired by all of us, and we would not
detract from their deserts. But we conceive that an
institution which is to rescue immortal beings from the
stain of sn, which could hardly otherwise be avoided,
which is intended to have an influence on the youth- I
ful mind, and lead it to an understanding of;its own
capacities, responsibilities and .hopes, deserves the fos-
tering care of an enlightened, benevolent community,
as much as those associations whose aim is to cure the
diseases of the body, or to restore the wanderings of
intellect. Such aninstitution as the Asylum and Farm


School is in true accordance with the spirit of the-Pil-
grims; it carries into effect-the first object of their sol- *
. icitude, the education of the young-of that young t
whose talents -would otherwise be employed to .violate.
- the peace andivirtue of .society. "-
It will be seen by the report of the Finance Comrn-
mittee that the expenses of the Institution for the year
ending January 1, 1837, have amounted to $6,100,
while the receipts for the same time have amounted to
$3,500, leaving a deficiency of $2,600. To meet this I!
excess of expenditure'over income, and to- prevent its !
recurrence, it-will ?',e necessary :to make an appeal to h
the liberality of the public. The board .of managers -
had intended to have made that appeal in the autumn '
of the .past;yearJut the condition of the financial af- c
f rtiir f'this'e uwity iirirced themtodefer it. They "I
would recoammenid the subject to their successors as one &
requiring their, attention when a- suitable time shall t
have arrived for its execution, with the confidence that na
the appeal will hescheerfully and promptly answered. -t

MUNICtPAL CoURT--Manslaughter.-In the cairte of
the Commonwealth against Patrick Riley, as prin c ipal;
and John Stewart, as accessary, for killing James M 'JVal-
-ly, His Honor Judge Thatcher delivered the follow wing
perspicuous and practical Charge to the Jury:--
Gentlemen--The Indictment charges that th is of-
fence was committed by the Defendants on the night
of the 7th of November last. This offence is call led in
law, Manslaughter, which-consists in the feloniou s and
wilful, or voluntary killing of another, without t that
malice aforetuought w which would make the killing mur-
der, but also without necessity to justify the de, ed, or
accident to excuse it, It is a case in which the i mblic
justice is interested : a fellow-being has been sud denly,
and by an act of violence, deprive-d of -life ; and it con-
cerns the whole community 'to make solemn inqu iry in-
-to the transaction, and to punish the bloody actors, if
they have violated the law.
Gentlemen of the Jury, you are aware that both
these defendants are on trial for the offence, and it is
for you carefully-to investigate- their respective share
in the transaction, and to pass on the case of each as
though they were severally orI trial,; one-may be guilty,
and notjthe other-and -both may be innocent. The
government must -first satisfy yoiU that James M'Nally
is dead: and that 'he onme -to his death -in itre manner
charged in the indictment before ybu can call on the
defendants for their defence. That -M'Nal y is dead is
clearly. proved, and not denied; but that Riley killed
MANwtiy is left to be inferred from the fact that they
"were engaged in a conflict in the street, and Riley be-
ing-at' the time armed withlr a knife it appeared imme-
tdiately afterwttsds, that M'Nally had received a mortal
-wound in the abdomen', -which on the following day
-terminated his life. But' the evidence stops at a most
interesting state of tee tl -ansaction. We are apprised
ef facts to this extenit.only; :--After M'Nally had twice
knocked Riley down -in th e street near the sidewalk;
and Riley -having received' from Stewart the knife,
passed from the street .n t&' the sidewalk. M'Nally
followed him; but before.he .had reached him Stewai4,
begged him .[M'N.] tdgodtmat'/ What w"r, nL'mallly'e.
reply does not appear; forlthe witness who relates ihe
fact says that though M'IaUy said something, he did
not hear what it was; for he :ran to call the watch,
and when he returned the:affray was- over. You will
naturally inquire tand wish to Hk 'ow, what happened
between the men on the sidewalk. Did M'Nally press
upon.Riley, and knock him down there ? Did Riley
attempt to escape from his attack ? Did he retreat to
the wall, or was the attack .so -auddex ', and the danger
so imminent,' that there was no -time Ih ft to retreat? or
did they both fall,; arid was the- wound .in the abdomen
the effect of accident or design? Thet e are all ques-
tions of much importance, and -ealcuih 'ted to have a
material influence on your minds. :If tbi evidence, as
it stands, leaves thispoint in doubt, so th a.tt youcannot
conscientiously say, that you believe! that .Riley inflict-
ed that mortal wound upon the deceased, y ou mustpro-
nounce a verdict of acquittal to both defend. ants.
The preceding inquiries are proper for ytu I(0 Put to
yourselves, although the learned conncumeon both sides
have argued the case-as though you woxad- naturally
come to the simple conclusion, that this mortal wound
was voluntarily inflicted by Riley. If that should-be
your conclusion, then the question wiD,beW.-ehether it
was a justifiable or an excusable'act on Mri.-pafrt. You
nust bear in mind, that it is not matesia"ltoli whom
the facts come;-whether from witnesses ftsrthe Govern-
nent, or for the Defendants; but you r'ms4rf t asecer-
ain what they are, and then judge;of theaatawcording
o the law.
The first that we learn of the doings oftl-1eiparfits on
he nigh of the affray we find that they hs6 .beernmamu s-
nig themselves at a game of cards, duringwrieh-tsorb e-
hing had occurred which gave offence to-.BI'afty; agi id
when he first left the house and was at thegate,,; be
threatened 4to flog both Riley and Stewart. Hemraeim .d
nto the house and alteri.e came back from :theIho-i; se
ie repeated his threats. Stewart came out, and-gaid to
5I'Nally--"You certainly will not think it wotth yqi ar
while to whip so small a'man as me." ThenISib 'y
:ame oul, -and struck 'M'Na.ly,;who- stood oppo.iie C ne
rate. 'Riley itnmediately ran across theistreet, ad
around the railing in front on Bedford street. -Bte;. irt
hen again interfered, and asked M'Nally" to-go4kol ie,
ind forgive Riley, for he would not think of.itria tihe
norninig." ivI'Nally replied, "that the: blow had',- no
nore effect on him than a blast of wind."- M'Naily 4* :en
seeing Riley standing up byithe railing ran after lh m.,
tnd Riley ran smmce distance before' M'Nally caught hi m.
r-hen IRiley dodged himn, -and ran back towards the
witness. M'Nally followed- him, and knocked-im do 4 : mn,
ind then it was, while Riley was on 'the ground that I he
vitlness says,he "saw M'Nally's foot going Riley I ?,(
lp, and said it was too bad and walked off towards be
niddlepf thestreet,bhut M'Nally followed, -amnd knock ed
mim down a.second time. 'When'BRileyarose, Itew irt
rave him a knife and itld him ".to use kis/tpieasur,, -thA
t." This appeared to be done openly, and in present ce
,f all. Riley then' went towards the.side walk, n id
.I'Nally still followed him. The witness -says, th-at bo th
before, and after Riley had received the knife, he"hea l d
Stewart ask M'Nally- forGod's sake to go home." E e
ays that during the whole affray, nothing.oeoam d
rhich led him tb believe that Srewart and .Bitely, r
either of them wanted to fight with M'Nilly; and tfis t
,ith the exception of the blow at the gate, the fight wa s
l\ on the part of M'KNaiy. The witness saw no-sig s
if anger and vengeance in Riley and Stewart.;'bat l e
xpectedl if M'Nally should-strike again ':.that iBilet /
night be tempted to defend himself with the 'knfi


have collections to make in distant places, that the
agent of that institution- had more capital to use in. -tat
way.
Witl regard to the U. S. Banr or its agent, I feel, no
particular interest in their welfare beyond what ev try
citizen ought to feel,viz. a wish to have retained am i*tg
us a capital which has afforded as mich and perhi.ps
more pecuniary accommodation than most of our o Wn
Banks-and, 2d, a desire to shield from public odi *qm
r an individual, possessing the confidence and respect of
everyone who knows him. Of a man distinguished
for his conciliating integrity of principle, manners and
amiable temper-for his private worth and public use-
fulness-and yet the writer in the Courier ventures to
speak of him in his closin-r paragraph,,, "His friends
make him out," says Q. E D. as the agent ofa mot
princely hypocrite, (Mr. Biddle,) a usurer without prit-
ciple,-an extortioner, with no other apology for his
meanness than that Gen. Jackson's warfare upon the
Bank has given him the power of oppression,--a power
which he exercises without regard to justice, hoaor, or
humanity."
It is true this on the face of it is aimed at Mr, Biddle,
(and a more severe denunciation could no't ,have been
framed against the most infamous individual in the
land)-yet, whatever may have been the intention of
the writer, it necessarily bears upon his agent,iciee he
is a participatory in these acts on which the -chrarges
against Mr. Biddle are founded.
In closing these remarks, I would briefly recall to
the'recollection of this community the circumstances
under which the U.S. Bank agency was established
among us. Was it at the suggestion of Mr. RBiddle or
of Qj agent, who were managers of it? Not at all. ft
was established here at the urgent solicitatimn'ofa
large body of our citizens-merchants, rnechaanics,
manufacturers, &c. who felt the want of the'capital
which that institution, by the expiration of its. fo'rnaer
charter, had withdrawn from us, and I will vetat re. tW
say that the business community would regaet- -ex-
tremely regret, that from any causes, the Govern. ment
of the Bank should discontinue the agency. .Wit h all
the pecuniary resources at our command, men of busi-
ness find it difficult enough to sustain.themselves., and
at such a- moment the abstraction of a large capital from
this State would be severely feltby every business man
in the community, and what, we would ask, more cer-
tain method could-be adopted of accomplishing' this
purpose than the attacks upon the governors and man-
agers of this institution, which it is the object of these
remarkfsto repel ?

in the public papers; He has written a letter to a friend,
for publication, which is sufficiently non-committal, and
sho ws him to be in the first stageof Van Burenism. It
is t bus that Mr. Senator Smith is disposed to carry
out the will of the people of Indiana, which gave an
ant i-Van Buren majority of near ten thousand, at the
late election We might ask the democrats of the Globe

NW a learn that the last failure of the government Ex-

In tli e neighborhood of Wilmington, (Del.) the Express
:ridei's,,-one from the north and the other from the south,
rode full tilt against each other The concussion was
tremendous. The southern post .boy was sent flying
-through the air in the direction of Maryland, while his

learn, the encounter must have been very much like an
