fT O CAPITALISTS.-The subscribers, Proprietors of the
ROSE HILL ESTATE, situated in the northwestern part
of the CITY OF BALTIMORE, having been disappointed in an
application to the Legislature of Maryland, made by themselves
andothers, for an Act of Incorporation, the object of which was
san extensive improvement of this well-known and valuable pro-
perty, so admirably adapted to private residences of a better class,
now OFFER THE SAME FOR SALE.
The ROSE HILL grounds-containing about 75 acres-occupy
a plain on the summinit of the city, and are at present unencumber-
ed by any buildings, or individual interest, to interfere with such
judicious plans of improvement as the judgment of enterprising
capitalists would lead them to adopt.
This property is distant from Barnum's City Hotel and from
the Post Office less than one mile; and the approach to it is
through that part of the city where dwellings of the best descrip-
tion are located, and to which public attention is now especially
directed. It is bounded on the west by Madison street, on tha
north by McMechen street, on the east by John street, and on
the south by Dolphin and Preston streets. The line on Madison
street extends TWO THOUSAND FEET, more than one-half of
which is already paved.
Capitalists disposed to make investments in real estate are in-
vited to examine the ROSE HILL GROUNDS, which, with pro-
per tanriagemecnt, can be made productive of vast emolument.
There are, as the subscribers confidently believe, no vacant lots
in any city of the Union susceptible elof so attractive and profitable
improvement.
A plat of the property, with plans for its improvement-as con-
templated by the joint stock company referred to-can be seen at
the counting house of John Gibson & Co., No. 8, North Charles
street, Baltimare, where any further information which may be
desired may be obtained, JOHN GIBSON,

TV-W TY-.SEVENTV CONGRESS.
/ FIRST SESSION.
MONDAY, JUNE 7, IS'lI.

IN SENATE.
The following memorials and petitions were presented arnd
appropriately referred:
By Mr. CLAY: From citizens of Cherokee county, Geor-
gia, praying the abolishment of the branch mint in Dah-
lonega, in that State. Mr. C. observed that the petitioners
were not influenced by any considerations other than those to
reduce all useless and unnecessary expenditures; and they
had petitioned for the removal of the branch when its location
was such asto be presumed to make its continuance favorable
to their interests. lie concurred most heartily in the expres-
bion of a sentiment in the latter part of the memorial, which
expressed the wish that the expenses of the Government
might be reduced from forty or fifty millions to twelve or fif-
teen, and that all useless expenditures might be lopped off.
It was a source of regret to him that the memorial did
not come within that class of business on which it was pro-
posed to act at the present session, and he expressed a hope that
it might be acted on early at the next regular meeting of Con-
gress. He would only move, therefore, that it lay on the
table ; which was agreed to.
By Mr. TALLMADGE: From citizens of Buffalo, N.
Y., and two petitions from citizens of the city of New York,
for a general bankrupt law ; which were referred to the Com-
mittee on the Judiciary.
Also, a memorial from the Chamber of Commerce of the
city of New York, in favor of a National Bank; which was
referred to the Select Committee on that subject.
Also, a memorial of the merchants of the city of New York,
praying for a law to allow drawback on all shipments,
whether by sea or inland navigation, to the British North
American colonies, as also on the re-exportation from the
United States of all dutiable goods imported from said colo-
ties ; which was laid on the table.
By Mr. MERR1CK: From the President and Directors
of the Patriotic Bank of Washington, for a renewal of char-
ter. Referred to the Committee for the District of Columbia.
Also, a resolution of the Legislature of Maryland, asking
Congress to take into corirfide iii.ii and provide the most ef-
fectual remedy to guard the rights of the tobacco-growing
interest.
Some conversation ensued as to any reference of this
matter at the present session, when it was manifest it could
not be acted on. When, on motion, it was laid on the table.
Mr. CLAY said he would call the attention of the Senate
) a resolution he wished to present, growing out of some of
the suggestions contained in the report of the Secretary of
the Tremry. That report had doubtless been read by the
Senatom generally, and it woaltd be recollected by every gen-
tleman that it concluded by an explicit recommendation of a
plan for the creation of a Bank of the United States.
Ttie Secretary added the suggestion of what Mr. C. should
be mostglad to Es,-., lhi. he must confess that he had nrot
full faith in its lriCri.n ,.ily, viz. a plan for conducting the
fiscal business of the Government which .shall reconcile all
opinions, and harmonize the votes of all parties in the coun-
try. However, it might be very right that the Senate should
see what is the plan which the Secretary thought capable of
frT,tin4 a result so desirable to all ; it was certainly proper
'l,' any plan that officer might deliberately have prepared
, and. recommended to the adoption of Congress should be in
its possession. With a view to obtain this, Mr. C. had pre-
pared a resolution inthe following words :
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury be directed to
coimmuonircate to theSenate with as little delay as practicable a plan
,of such a bank, to be incorporated by Congress, as in his opinion
is best adapted to the public service.
Before the question was taken on the resolution, Mr. C.
would submit a single remark as to the relation subsisting be-
tween the head of the Treasury Department and the Con-
gress of the United States. He was aware that objection had
frequently been made, and Mr. C. had himself made it, tn
calling upon the Executiv9 Department for forms of legisla-
tion. That objection did not lie against a call upon the Sec-
retary of the Treasury, because that officer held a peculiar
relation to the Legislature-he was made by law the servant
of Congress. The act of 1789 made it his express duty to
report to Congress any information connected with his De-
partment for which they might apply to him. On the basis
of that law, Mr. C. had employed the phraseology in this
resolution.
Mr KING said he too was desirous of seeing what the
plan of the Secretary in truth was. Provided it was such an
one as would meet the approbation of gentlemen of both sides
of the House, Mr. K. was certainly prepared to give it his
sanction and support; but he greatly feared that was an ex-
pectation which never would be realized. He would, however,
prefer that, in calling on the Secretary for it, the honorable
gentleman from Kentucky would pursue the phraseology in
which that officer had himself alluded to it in his report. The
Secretary called it a fiscal agent; Mr. K. did not understand
him as declaring that this agent must be a bank. If the
Senator would modify his resolution so far as to insert the
words" fiscal agent" instead of" Bank of the United States,"
Mr. K. would cheerfully vote for it. He was as anxious as
the mover himself to see what the plan of the Secretary was;
but as the Report did not describe it as a Bank of the United
States, he objected to the use of that phraseology in the call.
Mr. CLAY said that if the honorable gentleman from Ala-
bama would refer to the Secretary's Report-Mr. C. had it
not before him at the moment-he would find that the Secre-
tary did recommend a bank in express terms. True, he also
used the phrase a fiscal agent, but under those words Mr. C.
understood him as plainly referring to a bank, especially as
he spoke of such agent as would not be exposed to any ob-
jections of a constitutional character, which were urged by
many gentlemen against a Bank of the United States. How-
ever, he had no objection to add to the resolution any words
that should render it acceptable to gentlemen, though he hail
not the shadow of a doubt, for his own part, that what the
Secretary meant was a bank.
Mr. WOODBURY quoted from the Report of the Sec-
retary to show that the institution referred to in it was one
so conceived in principle and guarded in its details as to
remove all scruples touching the question of constitutional
power, and thus avoid the objections which have been urged
against those heretofore created by Congress."
Mr. CLAY 'submitted to the worthy Senator from New
Hampshire whether all these objections to the terms of this
resolution were not somewhat hypercritical I What was the
resolution? It simply called upon the Secretary for the plan
of such a bank as that officer judged best calculated for the
public service: the Secretary said that he thought he had
one which would avoid all constitutional difficulty. Very
well. He would of course report such a plan, if he had one,
in reply to the call. The Senate would see whether it ful-
filled that expectation or not; and if, as he feared, it would
fail of this, they could correct and modify it as they pleased,
and make it such as they wished it to be.
Mr. WRIGHT said the resolution, on its face, was liable
to two objections: mandatory as it was in form, it command-
ed the Secretary to make a report which should embrace the
plan of a bank: this was the first objection ; and the second
was, that it must be such a bank as would require to be in-
corporated by Congress. Under a resolution like this, the
Secretary would not be at liberty to report any plan, even if
he had one, which was not a plan for a hank, and for a bank
requiring Congressional incorporation. It seemed to Mr. W.
that the call of the Senate ought to leave him, on these
points, entirely at liberty to report what measure he thought
expedient.
Mr. CALHOUN concurred in the opinion that the reso-
lution ought to give to the Saeretary the largest scope. Why
should he be restrainr,,1 aps,,eallv when the President in
his message had r,-.'..minere.ltd ih- establishment ofa fiscal
agent," and not a Bank of the United States. To the lat-
tsr, as was well known, there existed strong constitutional
objections. These the Secretary thought he could obviate
by a new plan of his own. Why not, then, let him report
at large ? If the Senator from Kentucky would not consent
so far to enlarge the terms of his resolution as to embrace this,
Mr. C. would move to amend it, and he hoped the question
would be put on the amendment he would prepare.
Mr. RIVES said that 'he ..hj~rt of the Senator from Ken-
tucky, as he understood it, was to elicit from the Secretary
of the Treasury the report of some plan to which that officer
had alluded as proposing a fiscal agent for the Government
which would obviate the constitutional objections which lay
against a Bank of the United States. But the language of
the resolution as it now stood was ambiguous, because the
Secretary in his report had spoken not only of a Bank of the
United States, according to the principles of that which had
heretofore existed in the country, but also of another form of
such institution which should obviate the objections hereto-
fore insisted on. He referred to this as an alternative which
might be resorted to.
If the object of the honorable Senator from Kentucky
really was, as Mr. R. hoped it was, to obtain such a measure
of compromise as would secure all the benefits sought by a
National Bank, and at the same time avoid the constitution-
al difficulties of the subject, then Mr. R. entirely and heart-
ily concurred with him, and he returned to that Senator his


cordial thanks for so noble, elevated, liberal, and patriotic a
purpose. The words of his resolution, as they stood, were
somewhat ambiguous; but Mr. R. was sure he did not wish
them to be so A plan for a fiscal agent of the Government
which should be wholly free from all constitutional objec-
tion, wa just the plan Mr. R. wished to see ; but as to a bank
of the old description, such as we had had in years past,
there was no need for any recommendation of such a thing
by the Secretary, because it was a matter perfectly familiar
to the mind of every Senator, and with the details of which
every body was acquainted. Mr. R. would feel under deep
obligation to the honorable gentleman from Kentucky if he
would bring the aid of his powerful support in behalf of the
establishment of such a fiscal agent as he had alluded to;
and he hoped he would consent so to modify his resolution
as to obviate all doubt or ambiguity as to its import.
Mr. CLAY said he wished, if gentlemen wanted any
amendment to his resolution, they would offer one; but, in-
stead of that, they kept on objecting, and no man proposed
a,.'v ,Ing of his own. Mr. C.'s object was to draw out the
plan of tie Secretary of the Treasury; he wanted to know
what it was. Latus see his band. This was all he want-
e.l, anml all he inmant. As to the objection of the gentleman
from New York, (Mr. WatRIoHT,) that the language of the
resolution imported a command, that was just what Mr. C.
wished; he had expressly forild It in that shape, with a


view to the law of 1789. Gentlemen might propose fifty
amendments if they pleased; all he wanted to get at was the
Secretary's plan.
Mr. BUCHANAN said he was very anxious to see this
." fiscal agent" of the honorable Secretary; it was, it seemed,
to work wonders. A political millennium was approaching,
when the lion was to lie down with the lamb. This fiscal
agent was to smooth away all difficulties. The valleys were
to be exalted, the rough places made smooth, and all flesh
together was to see this Whig salvation. This fiscal agent
was to make money plenty, supply a uniform currency, and
to regulate the exchanges; and yet was not to be a Back of
the United States! He should really'be most happy to see
it. But if it was to be an agent that was to have the power
of discounting paper, issuing notes, and dealing in exchanges,
let it be located where it might-here, at the seat of Govern-
ment, or in Philadelphia, or at New York-those who had
constitutional objections to a Bank of the United States would
find, he feared, their objections to this new agent as strong
as ever. Framed as it now was, he thought the resolution of
the Senator might leave the Senate in some doubt as to his
real purpose in this call, because the Secretary, though he
spoke of a fiscal agent, was in favor of a Bantik of the United
States on the old plan ; that was his first choice; though he
had, it seemed, an alternative ready. Of all things of a poli-
tical nature in this world, what Mr. B. wanted most to see
was this redoubled fiscal agent of the Secretary.
Mr. RIVES moved to amend the resolution offered by Mr.
CLAY so as to read as follows :
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury be requested to
communicate to the Senate, with as little delay as practicable,
thie plan of such a fiscal agent as, being free from constitutional
objection, will in his opinion produce the happiest results, and
confer lasting and important benefits on the country.
Mr. CLAY said he could not agree to the proposition in
that shape; if the gentleman would say a bank or fiscal
agent," and substitute "direct" for "request," he would ac-
cept of it as a modification.
Mr. RIVES replied that, although he preferred the reso-
lution as he had drawn it, yet in a liberal spirit of compro-
mise he was willing so to modify it; there ought to be, there
must be some concession for the sake of uniting the opinions
of gentlemen. [Considerable objections were made (across)
by gentlemen on the right of the Chair.]
Mr. R. said he should be glad to accommodate gentlemen,
but he must yield to the suggestion of the Senator from Ken-
tucky.
Mr. BENTON said he did not like the resolution; it
seemed to him to open too wide a field, and to invite such a
plan as never was contemplated by the Constitution. Its lan-
guage sounded, in Mr. B's ear, very like calling for a Bank
to promote the general welfare." He alluded, though in
terms only half heard by the Reporter, to Hamilton's inter-
pretation of these words in the Constitution,and their applica-
tion to the first Bank of the United States, but expressed his
satisfaction that they had since been viewed in a more re-
stricted sense, and that nothing was now held to be sanction-
ed by the Constitution but what was absolutely indispensa-
ble to carry into effect its granted powers. He had decided
objection to calling on the head of a Department for a scheme
to promote the general welfare.
Mr. CLAY having adopted Mr. RivEs's amendment as a
modification of his .resolution, it was read as follows, and
adopted nein. con.,
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treasury be directed to
communicate to the Senate with as little delay as practicable the
plan of such a bank or fiscal agent as, being free from consti-
tnutional objection,' will, in his opinion, produce thie happiest re-
sults and confer lasting and important benefits on the country.
Mr. BENTON submitted the following:
Resolved, That the President of the United States be request-
ed to communicate to the Senate a copy of the commission and
instructions (if any such there be) which may have been issued
to inquire into the conduct of laborers or contractors in the public
service in the District of Columbia, with all the information which
may be nece ,.1 ih.: i r.., i.r ,r,,dln- f it,.. bject, powers,uand
duties of the ( -r.,-.i. ....,, r. i r ,....r. T' "and organization,
and the law under which such were appointed, and thie Lime they
have been in service.
Mr. BENTON also submitted the following:
Resolved, That the President of the United States be request-
ed to communicate to the Senate the orders (if any) which have
been issued to the officers of the Army and Navy in relation to po-
litical offences and interference in elections, and threatening them
with removal or disminssul for such offences; also, a copy of the
same orders (if any) which have been issued to persons in the
civil employment of the United States.
Mr. BAYARD, from the select committee' appointed to
consider and report by what token of respect and affection it
may be proper for the Congress of the United States to ex-
press the deep sensibility of the nation to the decease of their
late President, made the following report:
The melancholy event of mite death of WM. HENRY HAnR-
son, late President of the United States, having occurred during
the recess of Congress, and the two Houses sharing in thIe gen-
eral grief, and desiring to manifest their sensibilities upon tirhe
occasion of that public bereavement, therefore-
Resolved by the Senote and House of Represenlatives of the
United States in Congress assembled, That thire chairs of trhe
President of tite Senate and Speaker of the House of Represen-
tives be shrouded in black during the residue of the session ; and
that tihe President pro tempoce of the Senate, Ihe Speaker of the
House of Representatives, and the members and officers of both
Houses wear the usual badge of ,u...,,n.a f.r niIir,, lays.
Resolved, That the President .. 1... I'..... I i.i.- be request-
ed to transmit a copy of these resolutions to Mrs. HAiRISON, and
to assure her of tIhe profound respect of the two Houses of Con-
gress for hier person and character, and of thie sincere condolence
of the late aificuing dispensation of Providence.
Mr. CLAY said that Senators would recollect that on the
last meeting some conversation had passed as to introducing
a resolution which should declare, in the outset, on what sub-
jects it was proposed that C t..ri, d:. -l,,,ald act at the present
extra session ; he had since ir.,,, lutt.c.m his attention to the
subject, and if no other gentleman had any resolution to of-
fer, he would present the result of his reflection in the shape
of the following resolutions:
Resolved, as the opinion of the Senate, Thatatthe presentses-
sion of Congress no business ought to be transacted but such as
being of an important or urgent nature may be supposed to have
influenced the extraordinary convention of Congress, or such as
that the postponement of it might be materially detrimental to the
public interest.
Resolved, therefore, as the opinion of the Senate, That the
S........ i 1 -. ....1 it not exclusively, to engage the de.
,i.. of ,, 1, ... .u .. present session-
1st. Thire i ].. ii ii ..., Treasury.
2d. The incorporation of a bank adapted to the wants of tihe
People and ofthe Government.
3d. The provision of an adequate revenue for Ithe Government
by the imposition of duties, and including an authority to contract
a temporary loan to cover the public debt created by the last Ad-
ministration.
4th. Tire prospective distribution of the proceeds of the public
lands.
5th. The passage of.inecessary appropriation bills ; and
6th. Some modification of the banking system of the District of
Columbia for tihe benefit ofthe people of the District.
Resolved, That it is expedient to distribute the business proper
to be done this session between the Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives, so as to avoid both Houses acting on the same subject
and at the same time.
He said it was not his intention to ask any expression of
the opinion of the Senate, either now, or, perhaps, hereaf-
ter, on these resolutions: he offered them as the opinions of
an individual Senator, and wished that as such they should
be laid upon the table and printed. There was one subject,
it would be perceived, which certain gentlemen had very
much at heart, which was not included ia this enumeration ;
he alluded to the subject of a uniform bankrupt law. Mr.
C. had not included that, because, for himself, he utterly deo
spared of carrying at the present session any project on that
subject which should be satisfactory to the Senate and to the
country; if, however, gentlemen were desirous of acting
upon it, and thought that it might be sent to a committee,
who should mature a bill to be taken up at the regular ses-
sion in the winter. Mr. C. had no objection to its insertion
on the list. But he must donfess that, from the experience
of the last as well as of preceding sessions, he was led to
think that it could hardly be expedient to introduce a sub-
jIect of that extent and intrinsic difficulty at a called session.
Mr. WOODBURY remarked that in the item on the list
contained ir the resolution, the Senator from Kentucky
employed the words "public debt created by the past Ad-
ministration." He would take the liberty of -u,..,--iinur to
the honorable mover the propriety of saying "the past and
present Administrations:" for the present Secretary of the
Treasury had proposed the contracting of a loan of six mil-
lions.
Mr. CLAY said he would not enter into discussion with
the honorable ex-Secretary on this matter. He desired that
this should be a session more marked by action than by dis-
cussion: he felt, he confessed, more favorable to the MONO-
sYLLAsc mode of debating than ever he had been in his life.
Whatever might have been recommended by the Secretary
ir his report in reference to a reserved fund, that recommen-
dation had not yet received the sanction of Congress: but he
should not enter into any discussion about it, but would sim-
ply move that the resolution be laid upon the table and print-
edo; which was ordered accordingly.
The Senate then-proceeded to ballot, under the 49th rule,
for the election of officers.


The first ballot being for Secretary of the Senate, there
were 43 votes given, of which Mr. AsBuRY DiCKINs received
41, and was declared duly elected.
For Sergeant-at-Arms and Doorkeeper, the whole number
of votes given were 42, of which Mr. ED. DYER received 39,
and was declared duly elected.
For Assistant Doorkeeper, the whole number of votes given
were 44, of which Mr. RoBERT BEALLE, having received 42,
was declared duly elected.
REPEAL OF THE SUB-TREASURY.
The bill reported yesterday from the Finance Committee,
to repeal the sub-Treasury law, having come up as the order
of the day, it was read a second time; when
Mr. CLAY rose and observed that he had only a word or
two to offer by way of explanation on the provisions of the
bill, and on the consequences which would result from its
passage into a law.
The first section contained the repeal of the sub-Treasury
act. Should that repeal take place, the state ofthe Treasury,
or rather the state of the finances of the country, would be
this: it would be under the operation of the law of 1789 es-
tai-hinog the Treasury Department; under the resolutions
of I A'16 as to the medium receivable in payment of the public
dues; and under the law of 1836 establishing what was fa-
miliarly called the pet-bank system; (but this last law Mr.
C. proposed by an amendment to repeal.)
The second section of the bill contained the re-enactment
of one of the sections of the existing sub-Treasury law


with a slight alteration adapting its provisions to the present
changed state of the country, and containing a new princi-
ple. Under the law as it before stood, embezzlement of the
public money was made felony ; but in its practical applica-
tion a difficulty arose. A public officer neglected to pay
over at the proper time the balance in his hands; a demand
of the money was made by Government, and the officer re-
fused; and the question arose whether, in such case, the
officer could or could not be prosecuted for embezzlement?
To obviate this difficulty hereafter, the present billptovidcd
that the refusal of an officer under such demand shall be held
to be prima facie evidence of embezzlement, and unless the
individual shall be able clearly to show that the refusal was
unaccompanied by any unlawful intent, he shall be subject
to all the penalties provided in another part of the bill against
those who embezzle the public property.
Mr. C. went on to observe that should the bill pass in its
form as reported,the consequence would be the revival of the
act of 1836, establishing the State Bank system. He supposed,
however, there was no disposition on any side of the House
to revive that system-a systeai which had been found in
practice so very inconvenient, and which would now be still
more so from the changed circumstances of the country and
of the banks. By that law the Secretary was prohibited
from making any deposit of the public money in any bank
which did not pay specie on demand, and also in any bank is-
sning promissory notes under the denomination of five dollars;
a prohibition which, ifenforced at this time, would exclude him
from a large majority of the banks of the whole country.
Mr. C. said he did not introduce a section repealing the act
of 1836, because he cherished the confident hope that should
the bill pass into a law, it would speedily be followed by ano-
ther bill providing for a Bank of the United States, or for
some competent fiscal agent, such as should furnish to the
People that which, of all things, they now wanted most, a
sound and uniform currency. It might, however, by possi-
bility, happen, though he could scarce anticipate such a thing
as in the least likely to occur, that no such bill might be pass-
ed, or, at least, not fora month or six weeks perhaps, during
which interval this law of 1836 coming up in revived force
might operate exceedingly to embarrass the Secretary of the
Treasury in conducting the fiscal operations of the Govern-
ment. With a view to avoid both contingencies, viz. either
of no bill's passing, or of its passage being delayed, Mr. C.
had prepared an amendment to come in as a third section of
the bill in the words following:
And be it further enacted, That all of the act entitled An act
to regulate the deposits. of ti- public ro.o..v," which passed on
the 23d June, 1S36, except the 13th and 14th sections thereof, and
the act supplementary thereto, approved 4th July, 1836, entitled
"Ac -i ',, i ".-ni ,r 'o an act to regulate thri depusites of the
publ.-.. -.. 3d June, 183". *t..-..t i, h ....-.. here-
by, i.- u. i ... J.-2, That this r I.. ,i h,,i .i ll i or im-
jair any securities which may have beentaken fi)r tihe safe-keep-
ing of the public moneys deposited with any of the banks in the
said act mentioned, nor any remedies to enforce the said securi-
ties which have been, or may hereafter be, prosecuted.
By this section the whole of the act of 1836 would bo re-
pealed, save the two sections which provide for the deposit
of the surplus funds in the Treasury with the several States;,
this provision, he presumed, was to be considered as of a per-
manent character, and not to be repealed.
Mr. C. added he did riot mean to say one word on the po-
licy of the sub-Treasury system, or attempt to reargue that
question ; and if he had not misapprchewded the temper and
disposition of the Senate, ,, i. i. rn,nn on all sides of the house
were as little desirous .. iths a.- hei could be. Out of re-
spect to the country, to the Senate, and to himself, lie should
resolutely abstain from again entering on a question which
had been already sufficiently argued, and needed no re-dis-
cussion now. In saying this, he hoped that no offence would
be understood as intended to the feelings of any gentleman;
it was one of those cases which would sometimes occur
when a difference of opinion took place between the mem-
bers of the National Legislature, or a part of them, and the
body of the People at large.
The amendment having been read-
Mr. CALHOUN said that if he had rightly understood
the object of the Senatorin proposing this amendment, it was
to get clear of certain diffi-ulties and restraints imposed upon
the Secretary, in consequence of changes which had taken
place since the passage of the law of 1836. Certain banks
which could at that time be made the depositories of the pub-
lic money were, in consequence of these changes and of the
prohibitions in the law, precluded at this time from being so
used. If thi, was his object, he might get at it much more
easily by simply moving to repeal so much of the law as con-
tained those prohibitions. The law had been passed under a
1..r..,,.i and general conviction that it was wrong to have
"it ,m ir,: Treasury under absolute Executive control, and for
the express purpose of taking the public money from under
that control, and placing it under the guardianship of the
law. But now it was proposed to undo all this, to retrace our
steps, and repeal the law. And on what ground? Why,
that in a few weeks a law would be passed establishing a
Bank of the UnitedStates; so that, if that expectation should
fail and no such law should pass, then the entire public trea-
sure would be left, asit was before the passage of the law of
1836, under the absolute disposal of the Executive !
[Here Mr. CLAY gave signs ef dissent.]
The gentleman shakes his head. Under what control
then will it be '
Mr. CLAY. Under the law of 1789.
Mr. CALHOUN. Well, I will go back most cheerfulty
to the law of 1789. If that is the meaning of the Senator
let him move an amendment, (or if not, I will do it,) declar-
ing that the law of 1789 is hereby revived. It declares that
the revenue shall be received in gold and silver only, and
shall be kept by the Treasurer of the United states.
Mr. CLAY said he never had alluded to the subject of a
metallic medium, or.of any manner in which the dues of the
United States were to be paid. He had merely said that
should the sub-Treasury law be repealed, the country would
be under the law of 1789, under the resolutions of 1816,and
under the law of 1836 unless that should be repealed. What
he meant to say was, that under the principles now revived,
as to the powers of the-President, the act of 1789 would op-
erate as a complete security to the Treasury till a sew
law should be enacted.
Mr.'CALHOUN said that, as to that, the law of 1789
was as much i i force in 1836, when the law was passed to
regulate the deposits, as it was now; and yet President
Jackson himselfadmitted that the public money was left ab-
solutely under Executive control, and that this stateof things
ought not to continue. Did gentlemen now propose at one
blow to undo what it had cost such strenuous efforts and so
much prolonged and excited discussion to agree upon ? And
on what ground ? Simply because a part of the law of 1836
would, at this time, impose inconrveniea and embarrassing
restrictions. Well, if that was thie case, why not simply re-
peal so much of the law as imposed these restrictions'? If the
Senator wanted to go back to the law of 1789, it was what
Mr. C. himself earnestly desired. But his object now wasto
record his objections to the amendment as proposed; and with
this view he demanded the yeas and nays.
And they were ordered by the Senate.
Mr. CLAY asked the Senator from South Carolina to re-
call to mind what were the assertions ofExecutive power ad-
vanced by General Jackson and his friends in 1836. Tae
removal of the deposits in 1833, taken in connexion with
Gen. Jackson's alleged right to remove any Secretary of the
Treasury who opposed that measure, went the whole length
of making a Secretary of the Treasury the mere creature of
the Executive will. This doctrine Mr. C. and those who
then acted with him utterly and strenuously denied ; and Ie
denied it still. The power assumed by President Jackson
over the public money and over the Secretary of the Treasu-
ry was without law and against law, and wholly arbitrary
and tyrannical. But he would not now revive that discus-
sion. Under such principles, the Treasury was at the
absolute mercy of the Executive. The whole doctrine
and the whole proceeding was against the law: and
Ie had no doubt, could the question have been brought
before a judicial tribunal, the Secretary might have been
convicted before any court in the country. Mr. CraY
had considered the law of 1789 as always in force: the union
of the purse and the sword was in the face of that law.
These had been their principles then, and they were their
principles now. If opposite principles, indeed, prevailed at
this day, as they had in 1836, it there were now any danger
of the removal of the deposits by the Executive mandate,
and of the repetition of the Specie Cireular, then it might be
dangerous to repeal this law of 1836: but such was not the
case ; and if the law of 1836 were repealed, the law of 1789
would immediately revive, and in union with the resolutions
of 1816 would prescribe the duties of Government in relation
to the public moneys.
Mr. BENTON went into a revision of some of the cir-
cumstances which led to and accompanied the removal of the
deposits in 1833. He adverted to the strong language there
employed by those who opposed that measure, declaring tha
the public money was in the lawless possession of the Execr.
tive. He reminded the Senate of the repeated messages of Pros-
dent Jackson, inviting Congress to regulate the subject lv
law; and then referred to the enactment of the law of 1831,
and the effects of that law ; but what was proposed now?
To repeal the law by a stroke of the pen, anul remit the pus-
lic treasure to the "lawless custody of the Executive." Am
to the law of 1789, it had been just as much in force in 1835


as it was now, yet these gentlemen then preached, from dhy
to day, that the money was in the lawless control of the Pe-
sident. Mr. B. contended that, except the law of 1836, there
was no law to regulate the custody and management ot the
public treasure. But it was said that there was no need of
the law now, because those in power held principles which
would prevent them from any improper use of the public
money; they were a different sort of people; and therefore
they needed no law to regulate their conduct. This, Mr. B.
said, was the very first time, during the twenty years hi had
had a seat in that House, that he had heard such a doctrine
brought forward. It was the first time he had hear that
there was to he a difference made between men in the making
ot the laws of the land; that laws were necessary togovern
one set of men, but not another; that the principles of one
set of public officers were so pure that they needed no laws
to govern them. He called upon the Senate to put the brand
of its reprobation upon doctrines like this. He should, it all
events, record his dissent from them.
Mr. CALHOUN said it was not his purpose to gC at
large into the argument. He only wished the Senate ts an-
derstand that it was now proposed, without the least necessi-
ty, to return back to that state of things which precedeO the
passage of the law of 0P36. He had himself differed from
General Jackson in tote with regard to the removal ofthi de-
osites; but he must do him the justice tosaythat it had seen
is deliberate opinion that, when the public moneys lay ii the
banks of the States unregulated by law, they were in a wrong
condition. In confirmation of this position, Mr. C. ailed

Mr. JOHNSON. And thus let in abolition petitions.
Mr. RENCHER asked the yeas and nays on ordering the
main question; which were ordered, and, being taken, were
Yeas 132, nays 89.
So the House decided that the main question should be now
taken.
And the SPEAKER having announced the main question to
be on the modified amendment of Mr. ADAMS-
Mr. DAWSON rose to dissent from the decision of the
Chair; and contended that the main question was on the
proposition of the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr. WISE,) and
that it never could be on the amendment. By our rules1 it
was true, it had been decided that the main question should
be on the amendment; but that question had been settled
otherwise by the parliamentary law. Mr. D. supported his
position by reference to that law, page 66, &c.
Mr. FILLMORE inquired of the Speaker whether an ap-
peal had been taken from his decision l
The SPEAKER replied that he so understood.
Mr. TILLINGHAST submitted that the very authority
which the gentleman from Georgia (Mr. DAWSON) had read
in support of his own views sustained distinctly the decision
of the Chair.
Mr. FILLMORE said that the proposition had been ex-
pressly stated to the House, before the main question was or-
dered, as being on the amendment of the gentleman from
Massachusetts, (Mr. ADAMS.) He (Mr. F.) hoped the gen-
tleman would withdraw his appeal.
Mr. DAWSON said he had not taken an appeal from the
decision of the Chair.
Mr. GILMER contended that some gentlemen had voted
under a misapprehension as to what the main question was.
The question was then stated to be oil the modified amend-
ment of Mr. ADAMs, to strike out the words "except the 21st
rule."
Mr. W. C. JOHNSON inquired if a motion to lay the
whole subject on the table would now be in order.
The SPEAKER said it would not.
(Cries of" Questiord, question ;" let it come, let it come.")
Mr. SLADE asked the yeas and nays on the adoption of
the amendment; which were ordered, and, being taken, were
as follows:

So the amendment, as modified, was adopted.
The question then recurred on the adoption of the resolu-
tion of Mr. WIsE, as thus amended:
Mr. WISE, after remarking that under the parliamenta-
ry law the previous question applied only to the amendments,
proceeded to say that he was constrained now to vote against
the resolution, because it was his desire to despatch business;
and he was satisfied that if this rule were taken away, and
if a flood of abolition petitions should be poured in upon us
as heretofore, we should do nothing else upon petition day
but discuss abolition petitions. There were various steps yet
to be taken in resisting this movement. The vote (Mr. W.
was understood to say) was too striking for him not to ad-
mit that there was a majority in this House in favor of re-
ceiving these petitions. He gave notice that it would be his
object to move to lay the question of reception on the table.
1-le would not, dared not, yield one inch of ground ever oc-
cupied.by the South on this question; and, therefore, he
moved to lay the resolution as amended un the table.
A motion was then made to adjourn, on which the yeas
and nays were ordered, and, being taken, were yeas 8S, nays
126.
So the House refused to adjourn.
Mr. FILLMORE rose and said that, when he had said a
few words as to laying the subject on the table, he had nriot
understood what the decision of the Speaker as to the main
question was. He now understood the Speaker to have de-
cided that the main question was limited in effect to the
amendment of the gentleman from Massachusetts. Was
it so l
The SPEAKER said it was.
Mr. FILLMORE. That being the case, without stopping
to inquire whether the Chair is right or wrong, I deem it a
shorter mode of arriving at the object I have in view to move
the previous question again on the main proposition. And I
submit that that motion, under the parliamentary law, takes
precedence of a motion to lay on the table. Andl I submit it
to the gentleman from Virginia (Mr. WISE) that it is impos-
sible to place this question in a shape where it will better en-
able the members of the House on all sides to express their
opinions by their votes than as it now stands. I submit
whether it would not be better to go on and take the vote on
the main question, and thus at once proceed to business.
Mr. WISE suggested that if it was true, as the gentleman
had stated, that the motion for the previous question super-
sediled the motion to lay on the table, there was no necessity
for submission to him. On this question of abolition peti-
tiuns he conceded nothing, hie yielded nothing; he knew
what obduracy would do, and he was taught to know what
he was to expect.
Mr. BRIGGS asked the Chair to decide which of the
two motions hadil precedence.
The SPEAKER decided that the motion for the previous
question had precedence.
And the demand for the previous question was then
seconded.
And the main question was ordered to be now taken.
Mr. CHAPMAN, remarking that this question was one
on which the State of Alabama (whose Representatives had
not yet arrived) ought to be heard, moved that the House do
now adjourn.
Mr. ANDREWS asked the yeas and nays, which were
ordered, and being taken ware: Yeas 91, nays 102.
So the House refused to adjourn.
And the question recurring on the adoption of the resolu-
tion of Mr. WISE, as amended-
Mr. W. asked the yeas and nays, which were ordered.
After some conversation on s 'j'.---'li.i of order-
Mr. RENCHER asked a dn' m-ri..n .in the question on the
resolution, the first division to embrace so much as applied
to all the roles of the last House, and the second so much as
related to the 21st rule.
The SPEAKER said that, under the parliamentary law,
the question was not divisible.
And the main question (being on the resolution of Mr.
Wits, as amended,) was then ,taken, and decided in the
affirmative : Yeos 125, nays 91.
So tie resolution, as amended, was adopted.
Mr. BRIGGS moved that the Hause now take up the re-
solution heretofore offered by him, in relation to the appoint-
ment of standing committees.
Mr. WISE submitted to the Speaker that the business first
in order was the unfinished business of Thursday last, to
wit, the resolution of Mr. W. calling on the Secretary of the
Treasury for his plan of a fiscal agency which would obviate
constitutional objections, &c. and p.-..i liiu for the appoint-
ment of a select committee of nine members thereon; (with
the substitute proposed by Mr. UNDERWOOD, and the ques-
tion of order raised in relation to it.)
Mr. W. modified his proposition by withdrawing so much
thereof as provided for the appointment of a select committee.
A discussion, directed to the priority of business, took place,
in which Messrs. BRIGGS, WISE, EVERETT,and UN-
DERWOOD participated; (Messrs. BRIGGS and EVER-
ETT contending that the resolution as to the appointment of


the committees was entitled to priority, because it had refer-
ence to the organization of the House.)
The discussion was brought toa close by a motion submit-
by Mr. TRIPLETT to lay the resolution of Mr. WtsE,
with the amendment or substitute of Mr. UNDERWOOD, on
the table; which motion prevailing,
The whole subject was laid on the table.
A motion to adjourn was made and withdrawn.
The resolution of Mr. BRIGGs then came up in the order of
business; it is in the following words:
Resolved, That the several standing committees of this House,
as provided for in the rules of the last House cf Representatives,
be now appointed by the Speaker.
Mr. SERGEANT moved to amend the resolution by add-
ing thereto the words, "and that a select committee of nine
members be appointed on the subject of the currency, and
the establishment of a suitable fiscal agency capable of add-
ing increased facilities in the collection and disbursement of
the public revenues, and rendering their custody more se-
cure."
Mr. BRIGGS accepted this as a modification of his reso-
lution.
And the question being on the resolution as thus modifi-
ed-
Mr. PROFFIT inquired if it was customary 'to legislate
on a subject which was not even in embryo I Was it pro-
per and customary to call upon the Secretary of the Treasu-
ry for plans 1 He was willing to do so, and when it should
come in, he was willing to eler it to the Committee ot Ways
and Means if that committee should be so organized as"to


suit his views, or, not being so, to a select committee. But
he protested at this time against any gentleman assuming,
without deliberation or consultation with the body of Whig
members, to know what the wishes of that party were. Let
them hold a consultation among themselves; let them see
the plan, and then they could decide whether it should goto
a Committee of the Whole, to the Committee of Ways and
Means, or to a standing committee. For his own part, he
would act upon no subject without first knowing what the
views of the majority were.
Mr. STANLY moved the previous question on the reso-
lution.
Mr. McKEON asked a division of the resolution: first on
the appointment of the standing committees, and then on the
appointment of a select committee.
And the division was ordered.
The demand for the previous question was seconded, and
the main question was ordered to be now taken. "
And the first branch of the main question, to wit, on the
appointment of the standing committees, was then taken,
and decided in the affirmative without a division.
So the first branch of the resolution was adopted ; and the
standing committees were ordered to be appointed by the
SPEAKER.
Mr. McKEON asked the yeas and nays on the second
branch of the main question, to wit, on the appointment of
a select committee, which were ordered, and, being taken,
were yeas 125, nays 90.
So the second branch oft.e resolution was adopted.
Mr. WISE moved that the House do now adjourn until
12 o'clock to-morrow; assigning as his reason for the hour
named, that the SPEAKER might have as much time as pos-
sible to select his committees.
Mr. MORGAN asked leave to introduce a resolution pro-
viding that the daily hour of the meeting of this House
should be 12 o'clock until otherwise ordered.
Objected to.
And thenthe House adjourned until 12 o'clock to-morrow.

THE AMERICAN BOUNDARY QUESTION.
T This is the title of a pamphlet of 36 pages which has re-
cently been published, containing miuch useful information rela-
tive to our claims to that section of territory known as our" North-
eastern Poss ssions," and which is now under negotiation be-
tween this country and Great Britain. The writer reviews in a
masterly style the preposterous idea of Popes and Kings of old-
en time having the right to grant titles of possession to foreign
nabobs even when the country was actually settled by those who
had sought an asylum here from persecution with the intention of
making it their homes. To members of Congress the work is
particularly recommended. Price 25 cents, to be had at H. R.

WASHINGTON.

"Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and
Inseparable."

TUESDAY, JUNE 8,1841.

We find room to-day for a sketch of a Debate
which took place on the 6th of May in the British
House of Commons on the subject of MeLeod's
imprisonment. It will be seen that the speakers
were not very accurately informed as to what had
taken place in the Courts. The language, both
of the Ministerial and the Opposition benches,
appears to have been moderate and conciliatory.
Mr. T. DUNCOMBE, who appears to have spoken
with much earnestness, is, we believe, member for
Finsbury, and a gentleman of liberal, if not of
radical, politics.

In the SENATE, yesterday, ASBURY DICKINS
was re-elected Secretary to that body for the pre-
sent Congress, and the other old officers of that
body were also re-elected.
In the HousE OF REPRESENTATIVES the whole
day, to an unusually late hour, was spent in de-
bate and proceedings upon a subject on which
the House has at former sessions spent a great
deal of time without much profit. We refer to
the question as to the manner of disposing of
petitions for the abolition of slavery within the
District of Columbia. The rule of the last session
in respectt to those petitions was discarded from
the rules for the government of the present House
by a vote of 112 to 104.

ALABAMA.
We learn from the Tuscaloosa Monitor, which
publishes returns from all the counties in the State
but seven, that the entire Opposition ticket suc-
ceeded, as was to have been expected, at the late

Busy BODIEs.-Every man hath in his own life sins enough;

after the virtues of an excellent person ; but if there be any
thing for which men keep locks, and bars, and porters-things
that blush to see the light, and either are shameful in man-
ners or private in nature-these things are their care and their

THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE will be found ac-
ceptable to the country at large. In itsexposition
of the National concerns it is sufficiently copious
without diffuseness, and perspicuous without re-
petition, while the candor and directness by which
it is pervaded bear testimony to the manly since-
rity of the author.
We like it for this simplicity and truthful char-
acter, which conceals nothing that requires to be
told in the public affairs, and recommends every
thing that is necessary as hints for legislation. In
style it is admirable throughout, without exagge-
ration or inflation in the topics and language.

FROM TAMPA-By dates ot the 15th instant, we learn
that one half of the 1st regiment U. S. infantry are sick of
congestive fever, and that it frequently proves fatal in thirty-
six hours from the attack.
A few nights previous, one of the Indians who had come
in for emigration attempted to escape, and was fired upon by
the sentinel, wounding him in the arm. The wound was
dressed, and the fellow, still holding to his purpose, effectually
made good a retreat before morning.
The General is still sanguine of the result of his closing
the war; and recommends to Mr. Secretary BELL that the
1st and 6th infantry, with the 3d artillery, be ordered on other
duty.

ExECUTtON.--At Raleigh, (N. C.) last week, a young man
named MADISON JOHNSON was hung for the murder of Hen-

the people nearly an hour, in an unfaltering and audible
voice-warning them, and especially the young, against the
evil practices of gambling, intemperance, and night carousals,
to which he attributed his ignominious and untimely death.
He said he had been deaf to the good advice of his parents,
and that the crime for which he was to pay the forfeit of his
life was committed under the influence of liquor and passion ;
and added, that if he had never indulged in thre ractiee of


drinking, he should then be free!

SEVERE GALE.-Our town and neighborhood was visited
on Friday evening last by a severe wind, rain, and hail.
Stables and other out-houses were frequently unroofed or par-
tially blown down, trees uprooted, and the face of the earth
literally covered with water. Happily, incidents of a distress-
ing nature are less numerous than might have been expected.
But it is with feelings of pain that we have to record the af-
flicting bereavement of the family of Mr. JAMES O'DoNLEY,
four miles from town on the Nashville road. His son, some
13 or 14 years of age, was suddenly killed by the falling of a
tree near his house, and his daughter, some few years young-
er, was so bruised and wounded as to leave but a slender hope
of her recovery.-Chronicle.

MELANCHOLY.-The Opelousas Gazette of the 2'23 ult. says
that on the Monday previous Mr. GILBERT SLOANE, of Bayou
Boeuf, accidentally discharged a pistol which nearly deprived
his wife of life. Mr. S. was in the act of putting a new cap
on a pistol when it accidentally exploded, lodging the contents
in the face of his wife; the ball entered the upper lip, carrying
away four of her teeth, and lodged, it is supposed, in the spine
of her neck. Medical aid was immediately called in, and
strong hopes are entertained of her recovery, but the ball has
not been extracted,

THE ST. LOUIS MURDERERS.

ST. Louts, FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 28.
The four negroes engaged in the terrible tragedy of the
night of the 17th of April have now been brought almost to
the end of their career, with a swiftness which ought to serve
to deter those who may have army tendency to commit crime.
Not six weeks have elapsed since the commission of their
last and moat revolting crime. They remained for daysabout
the very scene of their cruelties, unsuspected, and with no
apparent cleew to the real actors. Indeed, suspicion did not
for a moment enter the public mind that the crimes had been
committed by negroes. One by one they took their departure,
and soon many hundred miles of distance were put between
them and danger. In an unlucky moment for them, but a
fortunate one for this community, they were induced to com-
mit their secret to the breast of one who had not been a par-
ticipator in this crime, and who was unquiet and distressed
until he had disclosed it. He did reveal it, and instant and
most effectual exertions were made to secure the culprits, go
whither they might. In a very brief time, they were found
returning to the seat of their cruelties, intent probably upon
the commission of other acts of infamous outrage. T'he pub-
lic eye was on the stretch to detect them, and a few days
more beheld them all securely confined in the same prison, so
guarded as to prevent the possibility of escape, and with a
perfect consciousness that their !', t had been laid so bare as
to render conviction certain. Tr-i and conviction has fol-
lowed, and sentence and execution will not be delayed a day
longer than the lenity of the law allows. Neither the dark-
ness of night, nor the flames, nor oaths, nor distance, has
served to conceal the murders perpetrated by these men.
When they least expected it, their whole plans were expos-
ed-adding another to almost all previouss cases, in which the
certainty of detection follows the commission of the awful
crime of murder.-New Era.

The Galveston (Texas) Advocate of the 35th ult. contains
an account of a horrid murder committed by some unknown
person on Guy M. Harlow, who was confided in the jail of
Richmond, Fort Bend county, for manslaughter. The jailer
was aroused during the night by the report of two shots, sup-
posed to be from a double barrelled gun, and on repairing to
the prison, Harlow was found weltering in his blood. His
body was horribly mutilated by a large number of buck shot,
from the effects of which he died instantaneously. He was
handcuffed and chained to the wall by the neck at the time
the shots were fired. A table had been brought from the
school house and placed under the window of thejail in order
to facilitate the horrible deed.

DEBATE IN THE BRITISH HOUSE OF COM-
MONS ON McLEOD'S CASE.
Mr. HUME moved for a copy of the correspondence be-
tween the Legation of the United States in London, and the
Secretary of State for the Foreign Department, in relation to
the destruction of the steamboat Caroline; also, a copy of the
correspondence between Mr. Fox, the British Minister at
Washington, and the Secretary of the United States, in re-
lation to the destruction of the steamboat Caroline; also, a
copy of the correspondence I.ii',. 4t.i. L. ,,,, rant Govern-
ors of Upper Canada and tt,. io,....ri,-r'Giii:ril of the Ca-
tidas, and the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in relation
to the destruction of the steamboat Caroline. He would not
enter into the merits of the question, but lie certainly was of
opinion that the correspondence which had been publicly laid
before Congress ought to be likewise before that House, and
that if it had been produced at an earlier period it would
have tended to prevent much of the excitement which pre-
vailed on both sides of the Atlantic.
Lord J. RUSSELL said that motions relating to matters still
in course of negotiation with foreign Governments were so
entirely unusual, and so much inconvenience to the public
service would attend the production of the correspondence
now moved for, that he was sure the House would not sup-
port the honorable member for Kilkenny, who, in fact, re-
quired the production of the most confidential portion of the
correspondence between the Governors of Upper and Lower
Canada and the Secretary of State. He did not think the
honorable member was precisely aware how the matter stood.
The Government of the United States had made a complaint
of the conduct of certain individuals and officers belonging
to Upper Canada, who were said to have taken a part in the
destruction of the steamboat Caroline. The result of that
complaint was the transmission of a great quantity of corres-
pondence and various statements made by the Governor of
Upper Canada and several individuals who were concerned
in the transaction. The American Government sent coun-
ter-statements, but they did not persist in asking for a final
answer to their demand ; the effect of which was, that the
acts of the British Government ceased to be matter of dis-
cussion between the two Governments. It was not for the
British Government to follow up these negotiations by saying
to the American Government that they must desist from their
former demands; or for the United States to say that they hadl
been in the wrong in making such demand. All that could
be expected was, that the United States Government should
have allowed the subject to drop; and he was convinced that
it would have dropped, and no longer have been discussed be-
tween the two Governments, had it not been for the Nnfortu-
natearrest ofMr. McLeod, which completely revived it and the
discussions r t'jr Jir'-: 1,. With regard tothecurreapundenee
now moved for, he cohul only say that the production of it
would be inconvenient to the public service, would tend to
embarrass thie negotiations which were now gting on between
the two countries in a most amicable spirit, and might have
the effect of weakening the relations of two mighty andintel-
ligent nations. (Hear, hear.)
Mr. HUME said that if the papers he moved for were laid
upon the table, they would prove the reverse of what the no-
ble lord the Secretary for the Foreign Department had stated.
That noble lord had asserted that the American Government
had not persisted in demanding an answer to their communi-
cation of the 22d ofMay, 1838, whereas Mr. Forsyth distinctly
stated, in the correspondence which was before the world,
that Mr. Stevenson would not be instructed to press for an
answer, because Mr. Fox had told him that he expected an
answer direct from this country in a few days. What he
(Mr. Humne) wanted was to have on the table of the House
those papers, which would convince the House that the noble
lord the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, who on a
former occasion stated that he had transmitted an answer to
the American Government, never had transmitted any an-
swer up to that hour. The right honorable baronet the mem-
ber for Tamworth stated some time ago that there must be a
limit to the patience of the House regarding the refusal of
public documents, and, in his (Mr. Hume's) opinion, that
lime had now arrived. Had the documents connected with
the affairs of Syria been.produced when he (Mr. Hume) had
moved for them, he was convinced that the affairs of the
East would have been settled much sooner, and much of the
loss which the country had since sustained would have been
avoided. He only wanted, in the present case, the printed
correspondence; he wanted no secrets, and he hoped the
House would support him in endeavoring to compel the noble
lord to produce it. Had he been furnished wivh it sooner,
the question would have been forced upon the attention of
the Government, and might before this have been complete-
ly settled.
Lord J. RussELt. said that the production of the correspon
dence in question would not enable the honorable gentleman
to attain the object he had in view. The American Govern-
ment had asked for redress for the burning of the Caroline,
and to that demand Her Majesty's Government had deliber-
ately, and not through any neglect, thought it proper not to
give a formal anid final answer. But his noble friend the
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs had since informed the
American Minister at the Court of London that the British
Government had justified the destruction of the Caroline;
upon which the American Minister madq a communication
to his Government, which communication had not yet trans-
pired. His noble friend (Lord Palmerston) was, therefore,
perfectly justified in the statement he had made on a former
occasion.
Mr. HusM. said that since the 23l of May, 1838, when
the American Government sent a communication to Lord
Palmerston, requesting satisfaction, up to the present, or, at
least, up to the period at which hie (Mr. Hume) last introdu-
ced 'he question to the notice of the House, no answer had
been given, verbally or by letter, to that communication ; so
that thle House had been entirely misled and abused by the
allegation of the noble lord that an answer had been given.
Sir R. PEEL understood the noble lord the Secretary for
the Colonies to meet the motion of the honorable member, by
declaring that negotiations concocted with the subject were
now pending, that they were conducted on both sides in a-
amicable spirit, (hear, hear,) and that the production of the
correspondence moved for would be prejudicial to the public
service. Now, lie confessed that a statement of that kind,
coming from a Minister of the Crown, was with him (Sir R.
Peel) conclusive. (Hear, hear.) Without offering any opin-
ion upon the unfortunate state of ignorance they were in at
present respectirtg our foreign relations, he must say that it
would be most unwise to attempt to force a Minister of the
Crown to produce a correspondence after such a declaration
as the noble lord had made. He wished to ask the noble
lord what position Mr. McLeod himself was in at present.
He understood that the British Government had avowed the
destruction of the Caroline as a public act, and had called
on the Government of the United States to release Mr.
McLeod. In what position did the matter now stand 1
Would he be released, or would the law be allowed to take
its course '
Lord J. RUSSELL said that the statement made in answer
to Mr. Fox was, that the Attorney General of the United
States Government had proceeded to the place at which the
trial of Mr. McLeod was expected to take place, and would
there act according to certain instructions he had received
from the American Government, which he (Lord J. Russell)
did not deem it necessary to slate to the House; that the At-
torney General had not himself taken any steps in the mat-
ter, but that the counsel for McLeod, having stated that one
of his defenses was that the act had been authorized by the
British Government, applied to have the case removed to a
Federal Court, and that that application was granted. He
(Lord J. Russell) trusted that the Americrtn Government
would, when in a Federal court, do that which he was told
they could only du in a Federal court.
Mr.W. S 1-' L ,, *i hoped the noble Lord would not re-
fuse those documents which had already appeared in the
American papers. Surely no inconvenience weld arise from
their production.
Sir R. PEEL hoped the noble lord would refuse them, as
he thought that the application for granting of just aso much
information as another country possessed would be very de-
rogatory to the British Parliament. The statements already
published were of an ex part character, and might give a
most unfavorable ,lew of the case as regarded this country.
So that, by agreeing to the suggestion of the honorable gen-
tleman, they might be giving their sanction to these unfavor-
able and perhaps unjust statements. [Hear, hear.]
Sit D. L. EVANe could not understand the object of press-
ing for papers which honorable gentlemen had already lead,
after the declaration of the noble lord. -
Mr. P. HOWARD thought it indelicate, just as both corn-
tries were deploring the loss of the late President of the United
States, and just as a new Governor had assumed the office, to
press such a motion aa this on the attention of that House.
Mr. T. DUNCOME observed that, according to the right
honorable baronet the member for Tamworth, this country
should not possess the same information as was possessed by
other countries. They only asked for the papers relating to
the arrest of Mr. McLeod, and why the British Parliament
should not have them as well as the Congress of the United
States, he was at a loss to conceive. Whether that informa-
tion were withheld or not, he wished to know if the Govern-
meat intended to allow the trial of Mr. McLeod to be pro-


needed with, because the feeling throughout the country
was this, that our national honor was compromised by
the detention in prison of Mr. McLeod. The guilt or inno-
cence of Mr. McLeod had nothing to do with the question,
as it was notorious that the Government would escape from
the dilemma by the proof of Mr. McLeod's not having been
present at the destructionof theCaroline. But Mr. McLeod
had been aritated and detained in prison, and if they had a
right to detain him they had a right to try him, and if to try
him, to execute him, should he be found guilty. What he
wanted to know therefore was, whether, in the event of such
a verdict, the Government intended to allow Mr. McLeod to
be executed I Because, if not, they should have stopped the
matter in limine, and not allowed him to be thrown into
prison. Suppose Captain Drew was travelling in the Uni-,
ted States, was arrested, tried, and found guilty, would it be
borne that an English officer was so to be treated by a foreign
country for obeying the orders of his own? He asked,
therefore, did the Government mean to allow Mr. McLeod's
trial to proceed 1 He had been already imprisoned for six
months, and the People of England had a right to know why.
Sir R. PEEL observed that the question was not whether
Mr. McLeod, respecting whose arrest and imprisonment he
(Sir R. Peel) would give no opinion whatever, ought to be
released or not, but whether these papers, the production of
which the noble lord had told them would be prejudicial to
the negotlatious which were now being carried on in an ami-
cable spirit between the two countries, should be laid upon
the table of the House. (Hear, hear.)
Strangers then withdrew for a division, but none took
place, and the motion was negatived.


EDITORS' CORRESPONDENCE.

NEW YORX, JUNE' 6, 1841.
The report of the Secretary of the Treasury
has been received and read withthe greatest sat-
isfaction by the friends of the Administration.
The good opinion you have expressed editorially
of th.e report is fully endorsed by public senti-
ment as far as I have heard, and not only is the
report commended for its practical statesmanlike
opinions, but for the clearness in which they are
put forth, and the readableness of the document.
The repeal of the sub-Treasury bill, the estab-.
lishment of a National Bank, the funding of the
debt left by the Administration preceding the pre-
sent, the proposed tax upon the luxuries of other
countries, are all measures demanded by the Peo-
ple, and much of the opposition you see and hear
against them is rather an opposition of opinion
without principle than of principle with opinion.
Much anxiety is manifested here to know what
measures Congress will act upon at the special
session. A uh.siiu l.l pens and a million of tongues are en-
gaged in advocating the bankrupt law. The host of claim-
ants, too, are waiting some decision which will make known
to the People whether the business is to be general, or spe-
cially confined to the great measure recommended in the mes-
sage of the President. The sooner the measures agreed up-
on are introduced, the more quietness there will be among
the People, and the shorter the session is, the more satisfac-
tion will be given. The Opposition are full of hope in the
anticipation that the fiscal agent" will prove a rock for
the Administration to split upon. They forget that "the
cohesive power of public plunder" was the alleged bond of
union with a preceding Administration, and that the present
is composed of men who, in good faith, were called together
and meet together for the redress of grievances which are
not only agreed upon, but all of which, by agreement, have
their specific remedies. Thas, instead of.the sub-Treasury
system, we have a National Bank-instead of the deceptive
system of issuing Treasury notes, we have, a funded debt-
instead of a pre-emption system singly, distribution with
pre-emption.
The Globe, I remark, continues its criticisms upon "pipe-
layers," and its abuse of certain gentlemen in this city whom
STEVENSON aoias JARVIS attempted to involve in his conspir-
acy, and this notwithstanding the acquittal of GLENTWOnTU
by a court and jury, and the declaration in open court of
the prosecuting officer, that he had no evidence against, and
no suspicions of, Messrs. GRINNELL, DRAPER, BLATCHFORD,
and BOWEN, whose conduct in this affair had been perfectly
upright and honorable. As this prosecuting officer is the
District Attorney of the Corporation, in politics adverse, and
warmly so to the -Vhigs, it is worth the while to bear his
testimony in mind, when the Globe continues charges that
its own friends in open court give up. The pipe-laying false-
hoods are all killed in this city, and came very near last fall
re-electing Mr. GRINNELL; and I note them now only to
furnish our friends elsewhere with the many remarks of Mr.
District Attorney WnHITING.
The mails north and east bring but little news to the city,
and none that will interest your readers. There is another
ruw,or that Capt. ROBERTS and seventeen of the passengers
and crew have arrived at Newfoundland, and another that
the night watch of the President only were saved when the
shp struck an iceberg as at first reported. Neither of the
stories is true, and one of them seemed to have originated
in a cruel hoax. There is no news in the city, and none
from the interior of the State. The weather has been every
way summer-like since the commencement of June, and the
prospects of a harvest are much more favorable than for any
time previous since the commencement of the spring.

OR SALE.--A Valuable and Extensive Farm Il
Montgomery County, Pemnnsylvanla.-The subscri-
ber, desirous of changing his residence, offers for sale his FARM,
known as the HIGHLANDS, situated in Whitemarsh Township,
Montgomery county, Pennsylvania, 14 miles from Philadelphia,
and 1 mile from the Bethlehem Turnpike. It contains 308 acres
of land, 280 of which are in the highest state of cultivation, the
remaining 28 acres being woodland. The stone mansion heuse is
large sa.-] .- ni,.i;m,,i, and there has been lately attached to the
rear of h- ti..., a verandah, 60 feet by 15, with bedchambers
fbose, and covered with a copper roof, all being in perfect order.
The garden consists of 2 acres, is neatly arranged, and contains
the choicest variety of fruits. The pleasure grounds, surrounding
the house, are shaded with evergreens, and well laid out. There
are on the farm three large stone barns, capable of containing 200
to 250 tons of produce ; three stone tenant houses, and, in short,
every convenience requisite for a gentleman's extensive estab-
lishment-such as carriage hose, spring houses, ice house, green
house, forcing pits, &c. all in good order. The establishment is
well calculated for a Southern gentleman who may wish to reside
in tite country near Philadelphia, the intercourse with the city be-
ing facilitated by an omnibus, which passes the gate morning and
evening, and the Philadelphia morning papers are received at 7
o'clock A. M. by the Bethlehem mail. It ia unnecessary to say
more, as no person would be expected to purchase such a situation
without first viewing the same. It may, however, be added, that
for beauty, healthful situation, and advantages of every kind, it is
not surpassed by any in the United States. For further particu-
lars and terms, apply on the premises to

GIRANDJEANI'S COMPOSITIONS FOR THE
HAIR.-Notunfrequently have we had reason tocommend
to public notice the talents and skill of M. Auguste Grandjean, of
No. 1, Barclay street. His treatise on the Hair is a production
both learned and eloquent; it shows that he has studied deeply,
and that he has lull ability satisfactorily to make known the result
of his investigations. It is an old adage, the proof of the pud-
ding is in the eating ;" on this principle, the best mode of testing
tihe truth of M. Grandjean's theories is to make trial of the pre-
paration which he so ably recommends. Experiment, it can be
averred, has already, in many instances, proved the virtues of the
Compositions to which "e refer, and we feel confident that all
future experiment will butserve to establish their great reputation.
The preparation known as "'Grandjean's Composition" has
been so long a favorite, that it is almost useless to praise it; but
the "Eau Lustrale" is a recent invention, and demands that faith-
ful notice to which its merits aspire. It cleanses, and at the same
time beautifies the hair, giving it a rich curl and an exquisite gloss.
One of its chief properties (and this will recommend it especially
to the ladies) is, that it keeps the hair safely in whatever style it
may be dressed, resisting both motion and moisture. Thus much
have we ,. -.i, rr ,,,i -% '.,butif wewere to go on writing for

Sfarks, Alexander H. Everett, and John G. Palfrey, the present

B" LUE SULPikUR SPRINGS.-This delightul wa-
At tearing place, in the mountains of Virginia, will be open for
the reception of company early in June. Ample accommodations
for three hundred visitors will be provided.
The proprietors deem it unnecessary to renew a general des-
cription ot these Springs. Strong testitmoials from highly respec-
table sources in Louisiana, M ,'i.', and other States have
been freely offered attesting the value of the water and superior
accommodations at the Blue. The water combines, in an emi-
nent degree, all the sanative qualities and ingredients peculiar to
the White and other Sulphur Springs in Virginia. A I. i
analysis lhas been made by Professor Rogers, by which ii it 1"
pear that the Blue Sulphur will compare advantageously with any
other Spring of like character in the United States. Thie improve-
minents are new, and of a most durable and substantial order. The
main hotel is of brick, nearly two hundred feet long, with a spa-
cious dining-room the entire length.
No pains will be spared to render the table (the elegance and
profusion of which have heretofore been proverbial) equal to any
in Virginia.
Daily post coaches and accommodation stages will run between
the Blue and White Sulphur, the distance .,'n.g 22 miles. A
turnpike road is now being made between the l.,I- and Red Sul-
phur, thus opening a direct communication with those celebrated
Springs. The proprietors would therefore fondly hope that, with
an obliging host,attentive servants, and an earnest desire to ren-
der comfortable the invalid as well as the devotee of pleasure,"
they may continue to receive a liberal share of the public pa-
tronage.
Elegant and superior Baths of all kinds are, as heretofore, at-
tached to the establishment.
