On Tuesday in the Senate, Mr. Lawrence of Hamp-
shire, frona the.;Joint Special committee, who were
Instructed "to 'consider the expediency of remon-
strating, i.i behalf of the people of this Common-
wealth, against the passage of thl8 Bill now'befpre
- Congress, entitled an, 'Act totreduce the revenue to
the wants 'of th e-,Governmeht"" inade the following
report'which was read and laid on the table.
W.tereas, there is now pending in the House of Rep-
resentatives, in the Congress of the United States,
a Bill, containing mo(t important provisions, en-
titled, "An Act to reduce .the revenue of the United
States to the wants of the government," which
bill most intimately and extensively concerns the
business, the industry, and tfie prosperity of our
/-constituents;. .
Therefore, WE, the Senate and house of Represen-
tatives of Massachusetts, in Gengral Court assem-
bled, do, in the name and in the behalf of the people
of this Commonwealth, declare our sQlermn convic-
tions, that the aforesaid bill is deceptive in its title,
uncalled for by the condition pof the public finances,
subversive of the plighted faith of the government,
as expressed in the Compromise Act," and fraught
with ruinous consequences to the laborer, the arti-
san, the wool.grower, and farmer, as well as to the
manufacturer and capitalist. The passage of the
aforesaid bill into a law, we believe would be'the
death-warratit of the manufacturing establishments
of New England, would destroy, irretrievably, the
well-earned profits of the wool-grower, cripple, es-
sentially, the energies of the agriculturalist, by
abridging his domestic markets, ard by lessening the
number of consumers, and would encircle the opera.
tions of commerce with embarrassments, listlessness,
apd inactivity. Our citizens, confidently relying up-
on the Compromise, Act," as the warrant of their
protection, although opposed to its enactment, and
considering it as settling, definitely, the duties on
foreign fabrics for the term of said Act, hae wbih-
drawn from either' profitable pursuits, large amortI
of capital, and invested the-same in various manul
faetures, to the incalculable benefit of our common-
country, as. well as to their own private-profit and
emolument. The condition of the laboring classes
has kept pace, in amelioration and improvement,
with the growing and- wide-spreading prosperity of
these establishments: .The' operatives, both male and
female, in our manufactories, must suffer a material
reduction in their wages, and. consequently.'in their
comforts and means of happiness, if this bill should
'acquire the authority of a law.' The honor and faith
of governments, we believe, are the highest'security
of their citizens, and the firmest bond of patriotism,
an4 the strongest and most enduring ties of allegi-
ance,- and, as such, should be preserved, with un-
sleeping watchfulness, free, not only froln actual
stains, but from all suspicion of violation. Vacillat-
ing legislation, ard unsettled and wavering national
counsels, we believe, discourage enterprise, beget
distrust, create panics and false alarms, engender a
'base spirit of dictation and subserviency, and induce
needless waste of capital and industry, through want
of secure investment, and permanent and well-pro-
tected employment.
The tariff of duties is the grand regulator of man-
ufacturing and commercial enterprise, and should be
rendered as uniform and certain in its operations, as
circumstances will allow. Permanence and' certain-
ty are the great objects desired in every system of
duties, rather than the specific sums imposed. The
declared policy of a government, long acquiesced in
by opposing interests, and pursued without fear or
intimation of change, by all classes of citizens, we
believe should not be disturbed, without most obvi-
ous national reasons, founded in manifest and impe-
rious necessity. Private convenience, we admit,
should yield to the public good, and private right
give place to public necessity, yet, to justify en-
croachments, either on private convenience or pri-
vate right, the public good,to be thereby promoted,
and the 'public necessity to be thereby relieved,
should be most clearly demonstrated. The introduc-
tion of the aforesaid bill into Our National Congress,
we believe is not warranted by any such paramount
public necessity, nor justified by-any such control.
ing reasons of a national character, much less can its
passage into a law be-justified by any fair views of
national expediency. The "Compromise Act," im-
perfect and.unsatisfactory as it may have .been, has
been regarded as the settled law of the land, and re-
posing entire confidence in its provisions, especially
the one limiting its duration, our citizens of all par-
ties and all classes, have invested their money to the
amount of millions, and have regulated their business
with reference to its' provisions: We, therefore, the
Senators and Representatives of the people of Mas-
sachusetts, do, in their-name, and in their behalf,
most earnestly remonstrate against the passage of
the afbresaid bill into a luw, believing it to be un-
called for by fair and liberal views of national poli-
cy, that it is unnecessary and inexpedient, in dero-
gation of the public faith, unsuited to its professed
purposes, oppressive, partial and unjust; that it
needlessly jeopardises the best interests of a large
portion of our fellow-citizens, the mechanic, thle la-
borer, and the industrious poor; while it is fraught
with most disastrous and ruinous consequences to
the commercial, manufacturing, and agricultural in-
terests of our whole country. Thus believing, we
do, in the name and in the behalf of the people of'
Massachusetts, solemnly protest against the enact-
ment of the aforesaid bill into a law, and earnestly
pray that it may be speedily dismissed frotn the con-

sideration of Congress, and tranquillity be again re-
stored to the community.
'Resolved, That the officers of both branches of the
Legislature sign the foregoing Remonstrance offi-

quested to transmit to each of our Senators and Rep-

Supreme Court.--In the Supreme Court of the U
States, Friday last, the case of the State ofRhod
Island complainant, vs. the Commonwealth of Massa

lates to a question of boundary)' involving a mail 'stril
of territory on the northern border of Rhode Island.
SFrom Florida.-By slips from the offices of the Sa
vqmnnah Georgian, and Charleston Courier, we havi
news from. Jacksonville to Jan. 19, and from St. Au
gustine to the 20th. They gve particular of several
rencontres between the inhabitants and straggling par
ties of Indians, at no great distance from those tw<
places. The following from the St. Augustinie Heralh
contains the most important intelligence.
A letter from an officer of the Army, dated Cami
Dade, 10th Jan: 1837, states, "1Today. Gen.- Jesup ar-
rived from Tampa Bay. A scouting party captured i5
Negroes near Wahoo.Swainp, who state that Powel
was then in the swamp with a few of the Micasuky In
dians, the rest having left him. .That in the several
actions bf Gov. Call, a great number of Indians were
killed. That in the affair when the whites destroyed
a boat in the Withlacoochce, 17th Jan.. 10 hostiles were
killed and 20 wounded. That Jumper, Micanopy and
Abramn, were at A-ha-pop-ka, and were willing to make
terms, if they will be treated well. That the Indians
have hut a small. quantity of ammunition left. The
letter goes on to state, tomorrow we shall march against
'Powell or against Phillip,.at Top-ka-li-ka, or both, and
that circumstances indicate an early termination of the
An express arrived last night, to Col. Crane, from
A hicb we learn that Gen. Jesup had ordered home the
Georgia and Alabama- Militia. There-was a regular
force sufficient in the field.
It is reported that the mail rider, between this and
Tallahassee, has been killeJ by the Indians.
Col. -Crane has been ordered to Garey's Ferry, where
he will have his head quarters.
A letter dated Tampa Bay, Jan. 4, states that Com.
Dallas, with the seamen under his command, were
about to take the field. Fort Drane and Fort Brooke
were garrisoned by seamen from the Navy,. under
Lieuts. Leil and Adams. The West India squadron isor-
dered to rendezvous at Tampa Bay-the vessels would
be left at anchor, .with barely men enough to take care
of them, and the rest will take the field.
The Everglades in Florida.-The Everglades of Flor-
i a are a tract of country of which we have very little
authentic information. It has been supposed that the

principal part of the remaining. Seminoles have retreat-
ed to this region. The following letter, which we copy
from the New York Gazette, gives some idea of the
character of this tract-of country, and. states a fact of
some importance, that there are very few Indians there.
A letter from an officer'attached to the expedition of
Lieut. Powell, just returned from the Everglades of
Florida, gives the following particulars:-
"The detachment consisted of 200 sailors and ma-
rines; they left the ship on the 20th October in ten
boats, and the cutter Washington in company. They-
arrived in five," days at Indian Key, found the inhabi-
tants of this place in great alarm on account of the In-
dians they believed to be in their vicinity. There the
detachment was received and treated with great hospi-
tality. The next day left Indian Key and proceeded
with all despatch for the Everglades. Thih.eretofore
unknown region, they penetrated in every direction,
examining the rivers, inlets and bays, some of which
are very spacious and beautiful. Some idea of the ex-
tent of this region may be formed from the fact that the
detachment proceeded 60 to 80 miles in one direction,
western, before changing their course, and are believ-
ed to have traversed over 2000- miles during their ex-.
pedition to and among the Everglades.
The interior of this part of Florida consists of a thou-
sand or more islands or hammocks, covered with cy-
press trees, shrouded with black, moss, hanging in fes-
toons, presenting a very striking and romantic appear-
The detachment on several occasions saw a few In-
dians in the Everglades, in small parties, chased them
for miles, but the savages made their escape by running
their cahoes ashore in shallow water, and secreting
themselves in the hammocks. The officers and men
repeatedly pursued on foot for a mile or more without
success. The report that the Indians, under Oseola and
other chiefs, retired to the Everglades, is not true. The
detachment probably saw' and drove away every Indian
in that part of Florida.
The detachment on their'return to Key West, were
kindly received by the inhabitants; dinner and a ball
were given to the officers, and about the same time they
received the thanks of, and were highly complimented
by Gen. Call, for their services."
FORT JESUP, (La.) Dec. 20, 1836.-The sixth regi-
ment of infantry left this place yesterday, for Florida,
per order.
The United States troops lately at Naeogdoches,
(Texas) are on their way to Fort Gibson, by order from

The Pensacola Gazette of Saturday, states, that Judge

The Cherokee Delegation-Sent lately by that tribe
to examine the country set apart for them west of the
Mississippi, have returned. -They were at'Decatur'in
this State on the 10th, on their way to Georgia. They
are accompanied by a delegation from that portion of
the Cherokees that are now west of the Mississilppi. The
first delegation is headed by John Ross, the other by
John Looney.
They are said to be extremely dissatisfied with the
country allotted to them;', as well as with the Treaty last
negotiated, for their removal. They allege that the
country, is unfitted to their habits and extremely un-
healthy, and represent that if forced to remove a more
Southern tract ought to be provided, or they will soon
become extinct as a tribe. These are the reports they
are about carrying to Georgia, and thence, immediately
to Washington.-76b.
,roe're at XNashuin _-The Nashu'a TAovnranh sfatoeo that



This law is useless--even worse than useless-it is
attended with much injury, besides being very arbitra-
ry. It is broken, over and over again, every day. The,
borro6rer feels the injustice as well as the lender, and
thinl~s none the worse of the lender f6r receiving the
current rate of interest. The necessary operation of
the law is to induce the employment of third persons
and brokers, for the purpose of more safely affecting an-
illegal transaction. These intermediate persons must'
be paid by the borrower, and thus the rate of interest is
usetessly increased. If there were no usury law, the
ht1f6W~r would go directly to the capitalist, and.bar-
galn for the purchase of money on the best terms in his
power. If'there wvere no restraining law, conscientious
capitalists, of whom there are many in all our large
towns, who are. now deterred from infringing on this
law, however absurd and unjust, would come into the
money market, and sell'their money for a price which
many enterprising mechanics and merchants would be
happy to pay for it, instead of investing it in Western
and Southern securities, which yield a higher interest
than our Eastern stocks do. Thus the money of our
own citizens would be kept at home, and the competi-
tion which would thus be created between the 6ther
banks and the money lenders, wouldd reduce the price
of this article down to its fair and true value.
There are several exceptions in thelaws restraining
the rate of interest-viz :
Bottomry or Bonds upon ships.
Respondentia-or loans upon shipments by sea, in-
cluding Marine lnsuran'ce.
Pavwn-broking, or loans upon personal property,
which are at very high rates of interest.
Besides the above, there are several laws incorporat-


of Us iry Laws.-Bills' have been reported in bol
branches of the" Legislature of Pennsylvania, for r,
pealing in part the acts regulating the'rate of interest
ie To. courage the legislature in this repeal, the Chan

low the memorial referred to, and' .alsdo& report of th
r. Char4ber of Commerce, in which some df the rea
e sons i favour of this measure are briefly and strongly~
state We concur entirely with this committee il

other: corporate bodies stand on a different footing, be

which ithey posess, to a certain extent may also afford
a r wcaiU'hy they should be subjected to different reg
ulalio* prescribed in their charters, from those whicl
goveitnhe dealings of individuals.
But that all legal restraints-on the right ofindividuali
to ontaet, for; the giving or-receiving of any rate o
premi, for tne use of money, loaned by one party t(
the doter, which they may agree on, as mutually ad
5 vantageous, are injurious and oppressive, is a proposi
1 tion wlh we cannot conceive to admit of doubt. It is
injuriou.,to both parties so situated as to be desirous of
making uch contract, and more especially to the bor-
row.er, ahd injurious to the general interests of trade.
e Blit W? do not propose now to enter into a general
discussion, of the-subject.. Our object is merely to ex-
:press our approbation of the geqrral reasoning in this
report ant memorial, and to recommend these docu-
t ments to t4e notice and attention ofoiur own legislature.

S Interest.-The great pressure inthe money market
which lhas ieen felt both in this country and in Europe
.for some months past, has drawn the attention of mer-
chants and others to the propriety of abolishing, in
some degree, the present usury laws, and of leaving
money, like any other commodity, to find and command
I its value in market, without subjecting the individual
who takes, for its use, what it will in some shape or
other coiiaitnd.
The great error on which usury laws have been bas-
ed, is in considering money as totally different from
every other species of property-as a substance whose
value coul4not change under any circumstances, and
the use of-hich was therefore worth so much and no
more, at alytimes. Whereas it is nothing more than
-merchardioe, whosevalue is subject to fluctuation, like
411 -other solcies of property, and which, will command
more' or leas in market according as the demand or sup-
ply predorinaates. -
It will bW seen by the following report of a Commit-
tee of the amber of Commerce, of this'.city., fo whom
the subject was referred, that that body have made a
movementon the subject of procuring a repeal or modi-
ficatimot ofthe laws of this 'State, regulating the rate of
interest. A memorial, echoing the views expressed inr
I this report, was sometime since prepared by the Cham-n
ber o i Cot' nerce and Board of Trade, aind transmitted
to the' Legi lture of this' State, where it was referred to
a.Chmmltt which has the subject now under consid-
eration. t We understand:'also that a communication
was madi 0-the Board of Trade of Pittsburg, inviting

coincide tt,'those expressed in the memorial,with the

Report ofke Committee of the- Chtamber of Commerce
"-' s'i:. of this City. '
The Comtniatee appointed by the Chamber of Com-
merce,lftte 10th of May, 1836, to inquire into the
expedieniy of taking measures to procure, theta aboll-
tion qf theU.sury Laws, beg leave to
That after corresponding with some members of the
Legislature who are friendly to this measure, it was de-
terminedito postpone any efforts until the Winter See-
sion, when, if commenced early, it is thought there is
-every prospect of success.
The ncesaity for removing restraints on the rate of
interest, ihas become strikingly manifest within a few
months, during which time, owing to a variety of cir-
cumstarcbes, discounts have been higher than were ever
before linown in this country. The rates prevalent in
Boston lave been from 2 to 4 per cent. per month ; in
New York from 2 to 3j percent. per month, and in Phi-
ladelphia from 13 to 2& per cent. per month. These
States have been as current as the market rates for flour,
meat, cotton, or any,other merchandise, and yet no one
has ever thought of the expediency of restraining the
miller from selling his flour beyond $6 per barrel, or
the bufrher and planter from sellingtheir meat and cot-
ton 'higher than 6 cents per pound. The community
would not submit to such usurpation as fixing the pric-
es of allarticles of merchandise, neither wpil they sub-
mnitnmch longer to the arbitrary dictation of the law,
in fixing the price ci money-an article more liable to
fluctuation than any other merchandise.

o Committee.
e 'Philadephia., 'Dec. 17, 1836.
-. Sir-By direction vf the Philadelphia Chanmbeir of
e Commerce, we have the honor, to address you 61 a
i- subject which has engaged much 6f .be, atteaiem of
many of the wiost intelligent men of this city, asd our
' objectss invitet' the co-operation and support' tthe
n Institution over whioh you preside, if you approve of
e .our plansf-in- efforts to procure from our Legislatuire re.
d lief from the unwise laws now existing in regard to the
interest on money.
We beg to enclose a Report and Memorial of the
Chamber of Commerce to our. Legislature, ti pray
n them to modify the laws restraint the rate. of 1iterest.
l We think the community would be infiaitel'tA.Unefted
if this. were the received opinion throughout the <5tate.
But inasmuch as the Usury Laws have existed ever
since the foundation of this Commonwealth, and as old
f 'customs sanction their impolitic provisions, we deem it
0 prudent to attempt their repeal gradually,.so as not to
shock the prejudices of the people, nor to alter too rap-
idly the system which has grown up with the institu-
tions of our State. We therefore, you will observe, RE-
restrict this to individuals, and hot to apple -to Bonds,
Mortgages, or. other landed securities. We suppose
I that if we procure a modification. .f the"Usury Laws(
as pointed out in our Memorial, that after the lapse of a
s year or two the plan will be found so advantageous -as
to induce the Legislature to extend the repeal to all Ir.
striqtions on the money market:
Begging the favor of your Board to consider candid-
didly the important matter we present to your notice,
and requesting your co-operation with us, we subscribe
ourselves, with the greatest.respect,
Your most obedient servants,
Committee on behalf of the Phila..
deluhia Chamber of Commerce.
To the President of the, Chamber of Commerce,
To the President of the Board of Trade,
Communications were addressed separately, to the
President of the Board of Tradeof Pittsburg, and'separ-
ately to the Chamber of Commerce o-- ittsburg. -
To the Honorable the Senate and House of Represen-.
tatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania:
The Memorial of the Philadelphia Chamber of Com-\
merce respectfully represents:
Your memorialists have noticed with great satisfac-
tion that Bills-have been reported to both your honor-
able bodies, repealing in part.the acts regulating and
fixing the rate of interest, and under the expectation
that some enactment on this subject may be passed by-
the Legislature, respectfully ask permission to express
their entire concurrence in the necessity for removing
or at least modifying the present restraints in the rate
of interest.
The inexpediency of these restrictions has, within
the last few months, become strikingly manifest to your
mremorialists,during which time,owing to circumstances
not necessary here to be adverted to, the-rate of inter-
est has risen to a higher point than ever before known
in the United States.
In Boston your memorialists are informed, money
has been worth from 2 to 4 per cent., in New York from
2 to 3 1-2 per cent.,. and in this city from 1 1-2 to 2 1-2
per cent. per tnqnth. These are the current prices
which your memorialists are firmly persuaded.'have
reached these extravagant rates, owing in some degree
to 'the operation of these very restraining laws, which'
by shutting out competition,'has dimiuaished tb xium-
betr. of riders in the money market.
To attempt to fix the price of money is as futile as
-to fix the prices of Flour, Meat,' Cotton "oi any. ot.er
commodity. In point of fact, the laws restraling-the,
rate of interest, are useless-they are e aded daily-the
dnlyv .use of them is, to give employment to third per-
sons, to give effect to- transactions which, otherwise
would be illegal. These intermediate persons must be
paid, and to this extent the rate of interest is enhanced
on the unfortunate borrower.
Your memoralists respectfully conceive that were the
Usury Laws repealed or even modified, to the extent
hereafter prayed for by your memorialists, that bor-,
rowers would have access.directly to capitalists,'a nd
bargains for money wonld be negotiated, in the same
way .as for any other commodities, on the lowest terms,
from the circumstance of the market being open to 'all.
Conscientious capitaliast now deterred from infring-
ing these laws, however absurd and unjust, would be
brought into the money market, and offer their capital
to our Mechanics and Traders at the lowest rates, in-
stead of.seeking as they how do, a more profitable in-
vestment in Western and Southern Stocks, and thus
the money of our own citizens woutd be kept at home
to benefit the commonwealth.

Oa -the other hau4, the CashiE of the Eagle Bank:.
was confident, that no such negotiation was iade.-
He recollected that Mr. Welligton called with lr.

for the Defendant, that even if Ilie CshiiOr of the Eagle
Bank had negotiated this note, he had no right so to do
unless by express order ofthe Directors, which muatbe
proved. On the other side it was argued, that the Cuh-'

matters of this-kind, and that the transaction in question
was within ,the scope of his general duties..'-
But the Court Was very clear end decided. that 'the
Cashier of a Bank has no right to transfer by delivery,
a negotiable note, which is overdue, without express
.authority. For the .purposes of the present -trial, how-

have been expected' from a gentleman of his literary

consisted of the life, character, and services of r,

particularly to i sketch of this brave main's -ntures

Numerous other suggestions might be urged in favor
of the abolition of these laws, which are entirely nuga-
tory as far as regards the objects they were'originally
designed to accomplish, because they are constantly
infringed, but your meiorialists, aware of the difficul-
ties to be encountered in getting rid of these long.ex-
isting enactments; and anxious to effect this object only
in conformity with the wishes of all classes of their fel-
low citizens, do not ask for their entire repeal until fur-
,ther experience shall have satisfied them of their utter
AccordinIy, youi mriibtalists tiitv pray that the
Usury Laws ni'ay be so amended AS TO ALLOW, ON AND
RuN-but this provision shall not be extended to Bonds,
Mortgages, and other landed securities, nor to Banking
Institutions, Loan Companies, &c.
Your memorialists are the more confident of the pro-
priety of recommending the adoption of the above mo-
dification in the Unsury Laws, because in England, the
-greatest commercial. nation of the world-the example
has been set us, differing only, in the limiting of the
time to 3 months instead of 4 ronths-ahd beneficial
effects have beenL experienced from it.

expected to commence under plausible pretexts. The
article of coal is an instance of this. In the depth of
winter, when, during a season of intense cold, allare
-shiverinrg for the"&want of a more abundant supply of
fuel, the cry is raisedito repeal the duty on-foreign ooal.
So salt is known by every body to be an essential ar-.
tidle of hnman subsistence, and it is seized upon as fur.
nishing a plausible article on which the duty may u
reduced, or-dispensed with altogether.. ,
Butnif these aretall articles covered by the cdiipro-
mise, what security, what guaranty can the country pos-
sess'that ihe work of reduction is to stop at that point?
Will not the process, ere long, reach to cotton,? woollens ? Nay, are we not already notified, whilhias I
admit, the Senator has brought-us a bill less exception-
able than ,a corresponding one which has been in-
troduced elsewhere, that is not antagonistical" (I be-
lieve the term is) to that measure, that there is no hop-
tility between the two; and, if the purpose shall nect,
be effected by this bill, for reducing the revenues tor
sum not specified, that bill itself', or some kindred met-
sure, must be resorted to. I want the country to kno-
what is its actual condition. 1 want it to know whether
that odious, that shocking list of articles which his
just been read by the Secretary, is to be brought qp,
session, after session, for discussion and gradual action,
till the whole protective system is destroyed. The
country has.a right to know whether the peace, effected
by 'the compromise of 1833, is to be respected; or
whether it is to be assailed, first, in respect-to articles
calculated to excite public sympathy in theiTavOr, und
then those more important ones are at length to be
reached, -which are essential to the prosprity of the
national industry.
I have now discharged what I believed 0 be a 4uty.
You haventhe power, both in this House anor the other;
you can do in this matter as you think prom. -Go on,
then. Disturb, distract the country; re-agdtie the com-
munity ; re-open its wounds just closed ; lo this, if it
seems to you good; take upon yourselvB the awful
responsibility ; but you shall never do it dth my con-
sent, not without my-solemn protest. I
Mr. Wright, in reply, observed that h should not
argue the bill at this time. He had at present but one
duty to perform, which was to report the bN. He would
say again that the Finance Committee considered th
amount both of revenue and expenditure f;r the coming
year so entirely dependent on the action of Congress
that, -beyond the documents already oni the tables o
members, ted committee could state no thaluable fay t
for their consideration. He would mo4 that the bill-
be made the special Order of the day for Thiursday next,
and that, in the mean time, the statement which had
been presented in company with the bill might be
printed. -I
The printing having been ordered,
Mr. Davis observed that this nmeasugre was one of
great importance', and worthy of great consideration:
He considered it desirable to keep the country out of
agitation ; its prosperity depended more on that than
this body seemed to be fully aware of; prosperity was
impossible, tinder any policy, unless the nation had the
assurance of something steady in that policy. The na-
tion wanted rest; the People need repose that they may
know what to do. He had almost said that even a bad
policy, if steady, was better than a comparatively good
-one, if unsteady and perpetually fltictuating. This was
peculiarly true in relation to the manufactures of the
country, because those who conducted-these establish-
ments, if they were able to look a few years-ahead, they
would shape their mode of conducting business so as to
meet the policy of the Government. The bill proposed
seriously to affect, among other articles, that of salt, in
which Mr. D.'s State was largely interested, inasmuch
as very large capitals were vested in establishments- for
its manufacture upon the sea shore. Inasmuch, there-
fore, that the country might understand what was doing

here, and ot what wvas-sought to be accomplished by
this bill, he would ask that one thousand extra copies of
the statement which had accompaniedthe bill be printed.
This was agreed to. "
The bill was then read & second time, and made the
Order of the Day for Thursday next.

Tite Colonization 'Society.-The following is a sketch
from the National Intelligencer, of the proceedings in
the Senate on Friday last, on a memorial presented by
Mr. Clay, praying-for the incorporation of this Society.
Mr. 'Clay said he had a memorial from sundry citi-
zens of the District of Columbia, which stated that,
about twenty years ago, an association was formed, in
This city, for the purpose of establishing a colony of
free persons of color on the shores of Africa. In pur-
suance of this object of the Society, aided solely by
means of the-free-contributions' of the pious and the
good in the country, they had established 'a' olony. A
great many donations had been ,iade, and- many be-
quests in moeny,'and lands; but, for the want of a cor
orate poWer, tey had already sustained co9n-iderable
losses, anid apprehended more losses on t hat account.
They now asked siniply an act of incorporation, si that
tthey might have-'pbwer to receive donations and be-
uet s.', Mr,4i moved the reference of the document
,TMr. Calhoun said he regretted very much that the
-Senator had offered thts'gurmrorial atthiiu time. Any
thing which touched the general subject at. |I must pro-
duce discussion, and rather tend to increasefthe exclte-
lmnenrt. Mr. C. said this, not with atqy intention to op-
pose the referb-ce, but he thought the, subject could
not -be agitated with- benefits to, any interest ; and he
hoped, therefore, it would no( be acted upon.
S.M,. Clay said he ,e retted extremely aoy expres-
sion, even it-the modified form used by the Senator
from. South Caroli a, in the -way of opposition to this
memnria. lhe- day would come .when the? merits of
%this Society-would be properly estimated. Its basis
was that of separating a portioAi bf the:'inhabitants of
.the cpu6itry from the residue,- with which they never
-coiuld be -aflgamrated.- It touched no interest, no
property, md could affect no interest, atW tio right, en-.
joyed by citizens of the States. The day was at hand
when the ohjects of the Society would Wt viewed in
-their'trie light." Bti with respect to the present ob
ject, it wo4u be to Mr. C. matter of utter stonishment
-if it-culd be met with opposition. The p wer of Con.
gress to legislate for the District was ve extensive
'and that it comprised the o-ject of this ti orial,,ooe
cuuld doubt. It merely asked tlie p-wer receive do-
natits; and Mr. C. would remind the.Seate that one
of -the, greatest patriots which the countyhad prodtc-

the Cornmittee for the District; that committee was
abundantly competent to judge how far the subject be-
longed to them, and they would"doubtless act accord-
ingly.: If the object was to carry the measure beyond
the limits otf the District, Mr. P. would be utterly op-
posed toa reference at all.
Mr. Clay further urged the importance of the Society,
and of giving it all proper facilities, by noticing the be-
neficial effects which would be produced in civilizing
and Christianizing the African continent.
Mr. Calhoun said he had always considered the prin.
cipal and avowed object of the Society to ultimately
bring to an end the system of slavery. He admitted
the benefits which might result to the People of Africa-
but he contended that the powers of Congress were
limited; -and be deemed this object too extensive to
come within their powers.
Mr. Strange opposed the reference to any committee,
both because Congress was incompetent, and because
it was inexpedient to meddle with this very delicate
Mr. Buchanan further urged a reference to a select
committee, because tle operations of the Society were
nor only- coextensive with the United States, but with
the African continent.
After some further remarks by Messrs. Clay, Bu-
chanan, Rives, Strange,'and Kinz, of Geo.
On motion of Mr. King, of Georgia, the motion to
refer was laid on the table-Ayes 24, noes 12.
Congress.-In the Senate on Monday, Mr. Clay mov-
ed to take up the memorial praying fot the incorpora-
tion of the Colonization Society. The motion was ieg-
atived, yeas 16, nays 26. The bill for prescribing the
currency in which payments to the U. States may be
made, was taken up. Mr. Rives supported it at some
length. Mr. Morris opposed it. Mr. Benton opposed
it. Mr. Webster made some remarks against, in which
Mr. Calhoun concurred, and on motion of Mr. Preston
it was laid on the table by a vote of 29 to 16. The pub-
lic land bill was taken up and further debated, and a-
mended. Mr. Clay moved to strike out the 4th sec-
tion, which gives rights of preemption, and before the
question was taken the Senate adjourned.
In the House of Representatives, the States were
called for presenting petitions. Mr. Adams said he had
some abolition petitions to present, and asked leave of
the House to address them in favour of a motion to
have them read. A motion to suspend the rule to give
him leave was negative, yeas 44, nays 124. Mr. Adams
presented a memorial from citizens of Philadelphia in
opposition to the annexation of Texas, which he asked
to have read. The Chair having examined the paper
said that it related to slavery, and must be laid on the
table. -
Mr. Adams appealed from this decision. The Chair,
said, that it was only necessary to glance at the, petition
to see that it falls within the order. Mr. Adams, "I
deny it." The Chair," order." Mr. Adams asked for
the yeas and nays on his appeal, and they were ordered.
Mr. Phillips asked the reading of the petition : if it was
not read, he asked to be excused from voting on the
question, The Chair stated the question again atlength
and directed the memorial to be read. in order that the
House might decide upon the appeal. The memorial
wasIread. It is from an anti-slavery association of the
city and county of Philadelphia, remonstrating against
the recog tuition of the independence of Texas, as a vio
lation of the immutable principles of national justice
and representing that the irisurrection in Texas was in-
stigated and-supported by citizens of the United States ;
and thatits main object was to open a vast slave market
in that country, and to give a new impulse both to the
foreign and the domestic slave trade. Mr."Mercer
stated it as his opinion that the memorial did not-come
within the spirit of the order of the House, and that the
decision of the Chair was erroneous. Mr. Hawes renew-
ed the motion to lay the appeal and the whole subject
on the table. The yeas and-nays were ordered on this
motion and were-yeas 131, nays 62. Mr. Adams pre-
sented a, petition from 200 citizens of Kingston, a town
in his district,' praying the abolition of slavery in the
district ofColumbia. e moved that it be read. The,
Chair remarked that the order did not permit the read-
. ing of the petition. Mr. Adams, I appeal from that de-
cision. Not one word in that order directs that the pe-
tition shall not be read. The'Chair stated the question.
Mr. Jarvis moved that the appeal lie on the table;"
agreed to. Mr. Adams presented several other pfo..
tions of the same sort, thereading ofwhich he required ,
and the speaker having decided as before, Mr A. ap-
pealed, and on motion, the appeal was, in each case1
laid on the table. Mr. Williams of Key, rase to make
a motion. Mr. Adams, with warmthu-Mr. Speaker, 1
claim the floor, without interruption. I am presenting
petitions. Mr. Adams retained the floor, until he had
presented some dozens of Abolition petitions, Anti-
Texas petitions, &c. from Maine, New York, Pennsyl-
vume. Ohio ,p'Ldathe Sittes. ueon each!of which he

raised the same quealun, .z apxlp..r1 a iR. y
sion of the Chair. In each case, the appeal was laid
on the table without a count. Mr. Haley, of Conneceti-
cut, presented a remonstrance from 200 citizens of New
London, against the abolition of slavery in the District
of Columbia by Congress. Many Abolition petitions
were presented from Vermont and New, York,
Mr. Granger presented the petition of more than 1200
merchants and ckizens of New York, praying for the
-establishmnent of a National Bank. It was referred to
the Committee on Commerce. Mr. Jenifer presented
memorial of a convention of tobacco planters, and a
joint resolution of the Legislature.of Maryland, which
on his motion was referred to a select committee of nine.
.Mr. Harlemn presented memorial from citizens of Ken-
Z, tioky, ,rayig for aid' toithe Colonization Society.-
Mr. Adams cotehded that the memorial related to slav-
ery, and Mr. Mercer that it did not. The subject was
Said over. The Speaker presented a petition from mem-
.ber--dfthe 1bar of the District 0fColumfbia; preferring
chargesagainst the Hon.-BuckrTh.u4rston', one ofthe.

they made an error in sounding, and were deceived by the loom
of the land. Capt L. was first landed by part ot the crew, but in
