;XCHANG U HOTEL, Baltimore.-The subscriber,
ever desirous to meet the wishes of the ti ii- 'ri commu-
nity, has now the pleasure of informing his Ii lads.0-1 i he ihas
added about fifty new and airy rooms to his hotel, which he trusts
will enable him to accommodate all who may patronize his house.
From the encouragement lie has received, and from a determifa
tion to meet thie views (as far as possible) of his friends, he flatters
himself that old fiends will continue, and new ones be induced to
give him a trial. Its near approximation to the Railroad Depots
and thie several steamboats, tihe lpirge, airy, and well ventilated
apartments, and healthy location, make it a desirable place for
Southern as well as Northern travellers. Respectfully,

such improvement, which they have united with their first patent
under tihe title of Double Patent Filter Inkstand." The eu-
log. bestowed on the Patent Filter Inkstand by thie public jour-
nals, and the preference obtained hor them over the common ink-
stands, were almost unprecedented. Thire present novel and sci-
entifi cmithod of supplying c'ear ink to there dipping cup, and re-
turning it into the reservoir, is exceedingly simple, the action being
now pferfornmied by merely lifting up the lid to tbtatin a supply andi
shutting it down to withdraw it; in this state it cannot overflow,
whatever may bIe the change of temperature, and it is protected
from dust or otherinjury in any place or clitiate. When the ink-
stand is filed, it is always ready for use, and the writer will have
a regular and daily supply of clear ink for four or six months.

DEBATE ON THE VETO.
SPEECH OF MI. CLAY,
On the Executive Message containing the Presi-
dent's objections to the Bank Bill,
IN SENATE UNITED STATES, AUGUosT 19, 1841.
Mr. CLAY, of Kentucky, rose and addressed the Senate
la follows: Mr. President, 'the bill which forms the present
subject of our deliberations had passed both Houses of Con-
gress by decisive majorities, and, in conformity with the re-
quirement of the Constitution, was presented to the Presi-
ent of the United States for his consideration. He has re-
turne4it to the Senate, in which it originated, according to
the dirmion of the Constitution, with a message announcing
his veto of the bill, and containing his objections to its pas-
sage. And the question now to be decided is, Shall the bill
pass, by the required constitutional majority of two-thirds,
the President's objections notwithstanding t
Knowing, sir, bat too well that no such majority can be
obtained, and that the bill must fall, I would have been re-
joiced to have found myself at liberty to abstain from saying
one word on this painful occasion. But the President has
laest allowed me to give a silent vote. I think, with all respect
and deference to him, he has not reciprocated the friendly
spirit of concession and compromise which animated Comm
reas in the provisions of this bill, and especially in the modi
cation of the sixteenth fundamental condition of the bank.
He has commented, [ think, with undeserved severity om that
part of the bill; he has used, I am sure unintentionally, harsh,
if not reproachful, language ; and he has made thie very con-
cession, which was prompted as a peace offering, and from
friendly considerations, the cause of stronger and more deci-
ded disapprobation of the bill. Standing in the relation ta
that bill which I do, and especially to the exceptionable clause
the duty which I owe to the Senate and to the country, and
sAlf respect, impose upon me the obligation of at least attempt-
ing the vindication of a measure which has met with a fate so
unmerited and so unexpected.
On the4th of April last the lamented Harrison, the Presi-
dent of the United States, paid the debt of Nature. Presi-
dent Tyler, who, as Vice President, succeeded to the duties
of that office, arrived in the city of Washington on the 6th oi
that month. He found the whole metropolis wrapt in gloom
every heart filled with sorrow and sadness, every eye stream-
ing with tears, and the surrounding hills yet flinging back
the echo of the bells which were tolled on that melancholy
occasion. On entering tle Presidential mansion he contem
plated the pale body of his predecessor stretched before himt,
and clothed in the black habiliments of death. At that sol
semn moment I have no doubt that the heart of President
Tyler was overflowing with mingled emotions of grief, of p-
triotism, and of gratitude-above all, of gratitude to that coun
try by a majority of whose suffrages, bestowed at the preced
ing November, he then stood the most distinguished, the mos
elevated, the most honored of all living Whigj of the Uniter
It was under these circumstances, and in this probabhl
state of mind, that President Tyler, on the 10th day of th.
same month of April, voluntarily'prominulgated an Address ti
the People of the United States. That Address was in thi
nature of a coronation oath, which the Chief of the State, ir
other countries, and under other forms, takes, upon ascenul
ing the throne. It referred to the solemn obligations, and
the profound sense of duty, tinder which the new Presilem.
entered upon the high trust which had devolved upon him
by the joint acts of the People and of Providence, and i
stated the principles and delineated the policy by which hi
would be governed in his exalted station. It was emphati
ally a Whig Address, from beginning to end-every inch o
it was Whig, and was patriotic.
In that Address the President, in respect to the subject
matter embraced in the present bill, held the following coo
elusive and emphatic language: I shall promptly give in:
sanction to any constitutional measure which, originating
in Congress, shall have for its object the restoration of
sound circulating medium, so essentially necessary to giv
confidence in all the transactions of life, to secure to indun
try its just and adequate rewards, and to re-establish th
public prosperity. In deciding upon the adaptation of an
such measure to the end proposed, as well as its conformil
to the Constitution, I shall resort to the Fathers oflhe great
Republican school for advice and instruction, to be draw
from their sage views of our system ..'i... rnot. nu, and th
light of their ever glorious example'
To this clause in the Address of the President, I bhaliev
but one interpretation was given throughout this wholecoun
try, by frienJ and foe, by Whig and Democrat, and by th
presses of both parties. It was, by every man with whomI
conversed on the subject at the time of its appearance, or a
whom I have since inquired, construed to mean that the Pre
sident intended to occupy the Madison ground, and toregar
the question of the power to establish a National Bank a
immovably settled. And I think I may confidently appeal t
the Senate, and to the country, to sustain the f;ct that thi
was the contemporaneous and unanimous judgment of th
Public. Reverting back to the period of the promulgation t
the Address, could any other construct in have been given t
its language I What is it' "i shall promptly give m
sanction to any constitutional measure which, originating
ir Congress," shall have certain defined objects in view
Pie concedes the vital importance of a sound circulating nma
di.et to industry and to the public prosperity. lie concede
'hat its origin must be in Congress. Andl, to prevent a,:
inference from the qualification, which he prefixes to th
measure, being interpreted te mean that a United States Ban
was unconstitutional, he declares that in deciding on th
adaptation of the measure to the end proposed, and its conform
mity to the Constitution, he will resort to the Fathers of th
great Rapublican school. And who were they I If the Fa
their of his Country is to be excluded, are Madison, (the Fa
their of the Constitution,) Jefferson, Monroe, Gerry, Gallatir
and the long list of Republicans who acted with them, not t
be regarded as among those Fathers t But President Tyle
declares not only that he should appeal to them fior advice an
instruction, but to the light of their ever glorious EXAMPLE
Whit example' What other meaning could have been pot
sibly applied to the phrase,tha t that he intended to refer t
what hal been done during the Administrations of Jeffersor
Madison, and Monroe ?
Entertaining this opinion of the Address, I came to Wash-
ington, at the commencement of the session, with the umot
confi lent and buoyant hopes that the Whigs would he ahl
to carry all their prominent measures, and especially a Bani
of the United States, by far that one of the greatest imm-
diate importance. I anticipated nothing but cordial co-opera
tion between the two departments of Government; and I re-
fleeted with pleasure that I should find, at the head of th
Executive branch, a personal and political friend, where I ha
long and intimately known, and highly esteemed. It will ne
be my fault if our amicable relations should unhappily ceas,
in consequence of any difference of opinion between us o
this occasion. The President has been always perfectly fa
miliar with my opinion on this bank question.
Upon the opening of the session, but especially on the re
ceipt of the plan of a national bank, as proposed by the S'cnr
tary of the Treasury, fears were excited that the Presiuder
had been misunderstood in his Address, ani that he haid n
waived but adhered to his constitutional sciuples. Undt
these circumstances, it was hoped that, by the indulgence of
mutual spirit of compromise and concession, a bank, coot(i
tent to fulfil the expectations and satisfy the wants of th
People, might be established.
Under the influence of that spirit, the Senate and th
House agreed, 1st, as to the name of the proposed bank.
confess, sir, that there was something exceediugly oenree an
revolting to my ears in the term "Fiscal Bunk;" bui|
thought, What is there in a name'? A rose, by any otha
name, would smell as sweet." Looking, therefore, rather t
the utility of the substantial faculties than to the name ofth
contemplated institution, we consented to that which was pre
2J. As to the place of location of the bank. Although
Washington had passed through my mind as art,,rv. thecitie
in which it might be expedient to place thie I. ,uk, it was bh
iieved to be the least eligible of some four or five other citie,
Nevertheless, we consented to fir it here.
And lastly, in respect to the branching power, there wa
aot probably a solitary vote given in either House of Congres
for the bill that did not greatly prefer the unqualified branch
ing power, as asserted in the charters of the two form
Banks of the United States, to the 1lth fundamental cond
tion, as finally incorporated in this bill. It is perfectly mani
feat, therefore, that it was not in conformity with the opinio
and wish of majorities in Congress, but in a friendly spirit
concession towards the President and his particular frisndi,
that the clause assumed that form. So repugnant was it t
same of the best friends of a national bank in the other
House, that they finally voted against the bill because it con
gained that compromise of the branching power.
It is true that, in presenting the compromise to the Senat<
I stated, as was the fact, that Idid notknow whether it would
ba acceptable to the President or not; that, according to m
opinion, each department of the Government should act upo
its own responsibility, independently of the other; and the
I presented the modification of the branching power bi'caus
it was necessary to ensure the passage of the bill in the Senate
having ascertained that the vote would stand 26 against it t
25, if the form of that power which had been reported by th
committee were persisted in. But I nevertheless did cntet
tain the most confident hopes and expectations that the bi
would receive the sanction of the President; and this motive
although not the immediate one, had great weight in the in
production and adoption of the compromise clause. I knet
that our friends who.would not vote for the bill as report
were actuated, as they avowed, by considerations of union an
harmony, growing out of supposed views of the President, an
I presumed that he would not fail to foel and appreciate the
sacrifices. But I deeply regret that we were mistaken. No
withstanding all our concessions, made in a genuine and sir
cere spirit of conciliation, the sanction of the President coul
not be obtained, and the bill has been returned by him wit
Arm I sh 4l now proceed to consider those objections, wit
as much brevity as possible, but with the most perfect re
pect, official and personal, towards the Chief Magistrate.
After stating that the power of Congress to establish a n
tional bank, to operate per sec, haa been a controverted que
tion from the origin of the Government, the President r
marks: Men most justly and deservedly esteemed for the
' high intellectual endowments, their virtue and their patric
I jiol have, in r!faq4 to it, entertained different 4d Cronflic
'ing opinions. Congresses have differed. The approval of
one President has been followed by the disapproval of an-
From this statement of the case it may be inferred that the
President considers the weight of authority, pro and con, to
be equal arid balanced. But if he intended to make such an
array of it-if he intended to say that it was in equilibrium-
i must respectlully, but most decidedly, dissent from him. 1
think the conjoint testimony of history, tradition, aind the
knowledge of living witnesses prove the contrary. Hlow
stands the question as to the opinion of I ., .,r. .-,, The
Congress of 1791, the C...,. 1. -f M1'1-11, 'he Con-
gress of 1815-16, the Cong-. .-,.1 I- :1-32, and, finally, the
pr, sent Congress, have ail respectively and unequivocally, af-
firmed the existence of a power in Congress to establish a
National Bank to operate per se. We behold, then, the con-
current opinion of five different Congresses ant one side. And
what Congrass is there on the opposite side1 ? The Con-
gress of 1811 1 was a member of the Senate in that year,
when it decided, by the casting vote oft Ihe Vice President,
against the renewal of the charter ot the old Bantik of the
United States. And I Inow here, in my place, add to the tes-
timony already before the Pubihic, by declaring that it is with-
in my certain knowledge, t'-.at that decision efthe Senate did
not proceed from a disbelief of aomajorily ofthe Senate in the
power of Congress to establish a National Bank, but from
combined considerations of expediency and constitutionality.
A majority of the Senate, on the contrary, as I know, enter-
tained no doubt as to the power of Congress. Thus the ac-
count, as to Congresses, stands five for and not one, or, at
most, not more than one, against the power.
Let us now look into the state of authority derivable from
the opinions of Presidents of the United States. Presidetit
Washington believed in the power of Congress, and approv-
ed a bank bill. President Jefferson approved acts to extend
branches into other parts of thie United States, and to punish
counterfeitersofthenotes ofthebank -acts which were devil
of all jusmification whatever upon the a-sumption of the una
constitutionality of the bantik. For how could branches be
extended or punishment be 1, .:'n.. ii d.. '. I itI .r, thecounter-
feiters ofthe papcr of a corpomration which came into exit-
ence without any authority, and in violation of the Constitu-
tion of the land 1 Jimes M adison, r.. 1 -.i.-a, i,,i,.- those
early scruples'which ihe had entertained, and which he prob
ably still cherisiihed, sanctioned and signed a bill to charter
the late Bank of the United States. It is perfectly wel
known that Mr. Monroe never did entertain any scruples or
doubts in regard to the power of Congress. Here, then, aren
four Presidents of the United States who have directly or
collaterally borne official testimony to the existence of the
bantik power in Congress. Anil what President is there tha
ever bore unequivocally opposite ,-i..1., i -i, ,1 disapproved
a bank charter in the sense intended by President Tyler1
Gen. Jackson, although hedid apply the veto) power to the ;1
for rechartering the late Banik of tihe United States in 1832
it is within the perfect recollection ouf es all that he not only'
testified to the utility of a Bank of the United States, but de
dlared that, if he had been applied to by Congress, he could
have furnished the plan of such a bank.
Thus, Mr. President, we perceive that, in reviewing th
action of the Legislative and Executive departments of rth
0 Government, there is a vast preponderance of the weight o
authority maintaining thie existence of the power in"Con
gress. Bat President Tyler has, I presume unin'entionalhl,

ceive me, three gentlemen at least of this committee"
aery denounced it-so much so, that it I received their votes
the election which followed in April, it was, I suspect, lie-
use there was no opposition. If the clamor ofsome of those
1h are now operating against me in my absence had been
eded by the People, or their advice been valued by ethers
cording to their own estimate, I should beyond doubt not
ave been permitted to walk over the course without an oppi,-
nt. Circumstances of a domestic character prevented
e from attending the courts in the several counties, nor, in-
ed, was it necessary, since my opinions must have been
ell known, and 1 had so thoroughly canvassed the district
recent occasions. I had, however, an opportunity ofspeak-
it to the People of Princess Anne, a thorough W\'h,- ,'. tn-
on the first Monday in April. I here openly declared my
inions on ever h...',,.' question, anti made known ih le
urse I would jut.-,. .i again elected to Congress. For
oire than two hours did I argue against distribution and a
ink, and, in consequence of the sentiments their expressed,,
ore than 50 Whig votes, including some of the most promi-
ent members of the party, were cast against me. I was in,
orfolk and Portsmouth frequently during this time, and
ver and over again, in conversations with many of the citi-.
ns, made known my political opit ionu; for entertaining which.
was more than once reprimanded and gently admonished
some of' these very .. i.: i..,.[.c. i, ihi. e.iinn ine. A f-
r all this I received ,i.iv t,, lr.-j ]inij..-,y in a district
which has been so closely contested since 1827, that the ma-
rity on either side has never, so far as I know, exceeded
50 votes, except last fall, when, by dint of great exertion,
he Whigs reversed the Van Bwren majority of 1839 of 139
otes,by a Harrison majority, all told, Nationals, Fuderaists,
ind Republicans, of 180, or thereabouts. 'In the face of these
'acs, which cannot but he fresh in the recollection of settol
its members, I have seen with astonishment, wh;ch no
language can adequately express," a fierce attack on my
ourso in Congress by this committee, couched in language
he most unkind, and coupled with insinuations of a political
nd personal character as uncalled for by the occasion as
hey are unjust and unfounded.
I bad supposed that 1 was lercted to Congress with (he
rivilege of acting according to myoien judgment and the,
Ictatcs of my own conscience, and that I should consult the
interests and be guided tby the opinions of my constituents,
ot sent here gagged and manacled as a tool to execute Iiar

was vain enough to think that those who elected mie intend-
d to place their Representatiw, however humble as a pri-
vate individual, on a footing of perfict equality in his rela-
ions towards other members of Congress--independent of
dictation either on the part of tke Executive or an ambitious
leader in either House. Aikd I think so yet, notwith-
tanding the declaration of this committee that I should be
ubservient-" play the white Charley" to those who direct
he proceedings of the present Congress." No ; I do not
hink so meanly of those whom I represent as for a moment
o believe they desire to deprive me of my light, as a citizen
of this Republic arid as the Representative of 50,000 persons,
o speak freely (f public men and their measures. So far
ro11 it, 1 repel the proceedings of this committee as a rt flue-
ion on thegood sense, the justice, and the liberality ofthe Peo-
ple themselves. I admit, with this committee, that a third
party" does exist in Washington, and it is because I have
not given countenance and support" to this movement that
I am thus assailed. Yes; a "'third party" does exist in
Washington, and in my district, too, if one may judge from
the proceedings of the meeting, whose purpose it is not to
support a Whig President in the just exercise of his consti-
tutional powers, but to shape the course of the Administra-
tion after such a fashion that it may inure to the benefit of a.
certain distinguished," not a patriotic," leader," whom
be majority ot the American People have twice rejected as
Unworthy to be their ruler; and whose livery 1, for one, will
never wear, so help me God.
In the course 1 have pursued I did not stop to calculate
the effect on my own popularity, for, so far as I am personally
concerned, it is a matter of little importance whether I sink
or swim in the tide of popular favor. I knew the virulence
with which I should be assailed, but I could not let the lover
of official station, however honorable and desirable, make me
forgettLie duty 1 owe my country, paramount as it is to ll obli-
gations to party. 1 stand prepared to meet the consequences of
my opinions and my votes, and should they fail to receive the
approbation of a majority of my conslituernts, I have slill left
the proud satisfaction that 1 have endeavored to discharge
my duty. It was certainly far from my expectation when I
was *tui. .;L[.- to place the Whips in power, that I should
so so -r. i. .cal. l1 on to denounce the course of the majority
in the House of Representatives as tyrannical and iOppressive
beyond endurance, and where he who dares to disobey the
orders of" rumor" is most effectuplitv :-'t( d while he is as-
sailed on all sides with the vilest t.lu: u,.., hireling scrib-
blers of a venal and profligate press.
I wish not to do injustice to that portion of the Whig
party who differ with me. I impeach no mau's Sincerity ;
but, in my opinion, they have fallen under the influence of evil
counsels. They seem, indeed, to be intoxicated by power,
and to be rushing headlong on the breakers that wrecked the
late A.lministration. It gives me no pleasure to make these
remarks. I would- rather turn aside and leap over the early
degeneracy that can so soon consign to the fate of all that
has gone before, the object of so much ihope and promise to an
anxious and suffering People. 1 cannot contribute to such a
sacrifice. I have urged no factious opposition, but I disdain
passive acquiescence under encroachment ; ard though I may
be borne down by the force of numbers on the floor of Con-
gr as, I cannot permit the fear of breaking the charm of Wbhig
infallibility to induce me to yield the forms of our institutions
and the principles of our Government without remonstraince.
I cannot go with the majority in Congress, in their match
towards consolidation, even at the risk of being slii-ma'iz. ,1
as a visionary abstractionist" or a member of a CA..,t. '
That federalism stalks through our Halls of Legislation,
stripped of all disguise, can no longer be denied; and he who
cannot see its image stamped on the measures of this Con-
gress would not recognize the picture, though, like the
Dutchman's painting, were written under it This is &
horse--that is a man." 1 would sooner place the poisoned
shirt of Nessus" on my back thai) profess the doctrines pro-

opinions of a large party in my native State. God foridl

be mistaken, that ,, Virginia is what Virginia was."
If to love and venerate the precepts of her statesmoen, to
endeavor to imitate their bright example, and to adhere to
the principles of the Constitution, even against, the. ,will of
the majority, constitute a ," Virginia abstractionist," then,
for one, I glory in the name, and, i( it be such, wish to die in
my error. The quesfi,,r, i, a ,,,h, to be decided, whether Rc-

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 1841.
Mr. STURGEON presented a memorial from the manu-
facturers of glass in the city of Pittsburg, asking that the ar
tiles used in the manufacture of that article may be exempt-
ed from duty.
Mr. CALHOUN presented a copy of the proceedings of
a meeting held in Petersburg, Virginia, protesting against the
measures of th. pir,,ii., AJriih,'rii.rin, and expressing a
hope that the Pr,. l-n' ..el.Al ii iht'.Id his assent from the

the adjournment of both Houses of Congress on Monday,
the 30 h of August inst. on which motion he asked the yeas
The question having been taken, it was decided in the ne-
gative : Yeas 19, nays 22.
Mr. KING moved to add two members to the select com-
mittee appointed yesterday by the Chair, to which the bank
bill from the House had been referred. It was the usual
practice in Parliamentary proceedings to place the friends of
any measure in a majority, but, at the same time, to allow the
minority to be duly represented. Such a principle was salu-
tary and proper, and should never be lost sight of by any de-
libi r.,tie body. The appointment of the present select coin-
mittee was the first instance in the history of our legislation
that this principle had been departed from. The bank bill
came from the other House yesterday, and a motion was made
to refer it to a select committee to be appointed by the Chair.
There was no objection matte to that course, but he found
this morning, with some degree of astonishment, that not a
single member of the minority had been appointed on that
committee. Why was it'l Were gentlemen unwilling to
have the minority represented in their deliberations on a sub
ject in which all were interested, or did they fear that certain
dissensions would be witnessed 1 The Parliamentary usage
was, that the various subjects should be committed to the
friends of the measure, but a portion of the minority should
always be represented. It was under this view that he had
been induced to make the motion to add two members to the
committee, with an understanding that they should be chosen
from the minority, that it might at least be partially reure-
sented. Never since he had had the honor of a seat in Con-
gress, had he known the rule departed from, except in a sin-
gle case, viz, the Committee for the District of Columbia,
where the principle did not apply with as much force as in
The CHAIR would state that one member had been ap.
pointed who had voted against the bill that had passed the
two Houses of Congress. When the present bill came is
yesterday, antd had been read, a motion was made to pastponc
it indefinitely, and 21 Senators had voted for it, thus evincinp
a decided hostility to the measure. None of those had been
appointed ; and in the selection the Chair had been guided by
a rule in Jefferson's Manual, which laid down the prineipl
that, in the appointment of committees for the consideration
of any measures, those who take exceptions to particular parts
of such measures may be appointed, but none who speak
entirely against the bill, for those who would entirely destroy
the bill would not amend it; and that no man was to be ap
pointed as a member of any committee on any matter where
he had declared himself against it; and that, when any memn-
her should be so appointed, he ought to ask to be excused. 1;
was under that rule that the select committee had been ap-
pointed, and it was for the Senate to approve or disapprove.
Mr. BENTON said it had been the practice of the party
to which he was attached, while in power, to select a major-
ity of the committee of their own friends, but then the minor-
ity was always fairly represented. The fault he found ir.
this case was, that the present committee was composed en
tirely of the friends of the measure, and, besides, were thI
five junior members of the body. He did not object to their
talents or capacity ; on the contrary, he thought them of high
order ; but it was a violation of the rules. He'did not think
that President Tyler had a single friend on that committee;
but he would let that matter stand over f,r a week, when the
truth would appear. The Senator from Alabama (Mr. KINO)
was entirely mistaken when he said this was the first case ii
the history of our legislation where such a thing had occur
red. There had been one instance beside, which would ex
actly fit the present case. Hlie alluded to the committee ap
pointed by this body to examine the affairs of the late Bant
of the United States, which was entirely composed of friend-
of the bank.
Mr. WALKER did not rise to take exception to the course
of the Chair in the matter, but simply to say that the rule Il
which the Chair had referred had never before been acted
on in this body.
Mr. SMITH, of Indiana, hoped the Senate would proceedI
to the orders of the day.
Mr. KING withdrew his motion.
be nate then proceeded to the consideration of th.
TWer or tne day, being the bill to distribute the proceeds of
S the public lands; when
P Mr. ARCHER rose andi finished the argument he corn-
menced yesterday, in favor of the general principles of thie bill.
Mr. WOODBURY followed in a speech of very consede-
rable length against the whole system of distribution, as un
jut, unequal, and injurious, and closed his remarks with th.
expression of an opinion that the Presitent would] wiihholh!
his assent from a measure clearly as unconstitutional as that
of the hank charter.
Megsrs. TAPPAN, SEVIER, WALKER, WRIGHT
and WOODBURY severally addressed the Senate at somi
Mr. CUTHBERT rose and expressed a desire to deliver
his opinions in relation to the subject before the Senate; but
the late hour, and the exhaustion which all must feel, admo-
nished hint that he had better defer it until the morning, if tht
chairman of the Committee on the Public Lands would as-
sent to the delay.
Mr. SMITH, of Indiana, said he felt deeply anxious t,
press the matter to a final conclusion. He had indulged th'
hope that they would have been able to have the question thai
dlay; hut as the hour was late, arnd the Senator from Georgi;
had expressed a wish to be heard, he would consent to thi,
delay, with the understanding that the question should be
taken by three o'clock to-morrow.
And then the Senate adjourned.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The journal of yesterday was read and approved.
On leave given, Mr. PARMENTER presented the peti-
tion of Win. Parker and others for admission free of duty of
certain articles used in the manufacture of glass. Also, the
petition of C. W. Wood and others, of Ashby, Massachu-
setts, for the discontinuance of the spirit ration in the United
States Navy. Referred to the Committee on Naval Affairs,
The SPEAKER laid before the House a letter from Winm
W. Seaton, Esq. Mayor of the city of Washington, commu
nicating a copy of the proceedings of a large and highly res
pectable meeting of citizens, expressive of the opinion of the
meeting oni the late riotous proceedings of a few disorderly per
sons, most of them presumed to be non-residents, and ofthe out.
rage on the feelings ofthe President of the United States on thr
occasion of his rejection of the bank bill. These proceedings
are signed by the highly respectable committee appointed by
the meeting fur the purpose of making known its views anl
wishes to the President and the two Houses of Congress,
and which consists of Mr. Seaton, the Mayor, Richard S
Coxe, Joseph Bryan, Nathan Towson, and John P. Van
Ness, Esqs.. The proceedings have heretofore been publish
ed in the National Intelligencer.
Mr. BRIGGS moved that the proceedings be laid on the
table, and be printed.
The SPEAKER suggested that the better direction would
be to the Committee for the District of Columbia ; to which
Mr. BatoGs assented, and they were referred to that Coin
POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT.
On motion of Mr. BRIGGS, the House again resolved it-
self into Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union,
(Mr. EVERETT, of Vermnt, in the chair,) on the bill making
appropriations for the Post Office Department.
The pending qieation being on the motion of Mr. GIL-
MER to amend the bill by adding thereto the following proviso :
"Provided, That the money heresy appropriated shall be
accounted fur i.,. ii,' Post Office Department hereafter, when the
condition of it, i,,.i, shall permit ; to he refunded into the Trea-
sury, or deducted from any surs which ih' Post Office Depart-
ment may heretofo, a.have paid into the Treasury."
Mr. CARY said he rose merely for the purpose of inquiring
of the worthy and able chairman of the Committee on the Post
Office and Post Roads if that committee had taken into con-
sideration the letter of the Postmaster General in reply to a
resolution offered some time since by himself, calling on the
Postmaster General for information relative to the detention
of the Southern mail in the city of Baltimdre 13 hours.
Mr. C. considered this a subject of great importance to the
wholecountry, atnd trusted the committee would act promptly
on it. He had received two letters from the President of the
Petersburg and Ruanoke Railroad, complaining of the in-
justice ofthe delay of the mail, arid the particular injury to
his road in diverting travel from it.
The Chairman (Mr. BRIros) replied that the committee
had not yet acted on the subject, but thought it probable it
would in a few days.
Mr. STEENROD was very desirous, hie said, to vote for
the appropriation contained in the bill; but he could not con-
sent to do so if, as he believed, by voting for it the Post 01-
flice Department was to be fixed on the Treasury Depart-
ment, and thus become dependent on the public Treasury.
And he, therefore, sincerely hi ped that the chairman of the
Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads (Mr. BaIGos)
would consent to the amendment indicated by the gentleman
ftom North Carolina (Mr. McKa.y;) and, instead of drawing
money from the Treasury, give the Department power to bur-
row ouch an amount as was necessary to meet its necessities.
[The amendment indicated by Mr. McKAY, but not for.
mally offered, and to which Mr. S. alluded, gives authority to
the Postmaster General, under the direction of the President
of the United States, to borrow the sum of five hundred thou-
Mr. HOPKINS thought, he said, that the amendment ofthe
gentleman from North Carolina (Mr. McKAY) ought not to
be adopted. The expense and delay of negotiating a loan
were sirong objections to that mode of relieving the necessi-
Ieq of the Department i and, evoe if V loa0 wero negotiated,
the Government of the United States would become respon-
sible for it. If that was so. and if (as had been stated by the
chairman of the Committee on the Post Office and Post
Roads) the Secretary of the Treasury could part with the ne-
cessary amount without the expense and delay incident to a
loan, he (Mr. H.) saw no good reason % hy they should resort
to the latter alternative. For himself, he much prfeired the
amendment of his colleague from Virginia, (Mr. GILMaR.)
Mr. LITTLEF1ELD expressed himself in favor of the
amendment of the gentleman from North Carolina, thus keep-
ing the Post Office Department separate and ajait from the
public Treasury. Mr. L. then made some remarks in rela-
tion to the Postmaster General and political proscription.
Mr. GORDON asked the reading of the amendment of
Mr. GILMER; which having been read-
Mr. GORDON said that this amendment, he presumed,
opened the general field nof debate. [Laughter.]
Mr. G. contended that the Post Ofte Department had the
means to pay every dollar it owed, and that there was no ne-
cessity for borrowing money either from the Treasury, which
was never to be repaid, or from any other source. To sus-
tain this position, he went into an examination ofthe liabili-
ties of the Department as compared with its means of pay-
Mr. G. then entered at length into the political debate in
relation to the Postmaster General, whom he designated as
having political capacity enough to do that portion of his work
in which he was engaged, but as not having the capacity to
manage the affairs or the finances of the Post Office Depart-
Mr. ARNOLD took the floor, and addressed the committee
during an hour, in a speech upon the general political condi-
tion of parties, upon the political topics which had been intro-
duced in the debate, and in reply to the remarks of Mr. CAVE
JOHNSON and other members who had preceded him.
In the course of his remarks, the House got into some con
fusion by allusions supposed to be made by Mr. ARNOLD to
the President of the United States, (with reference to the
Veto,) and which were regarded by several members as dis-
respectful to that functionary.
Mr. WINTHROP and Mr. ROOSEVELT called Mr.
ARNOLD to order.
Mr. ROOSEVELT -I ,ji,. ... his ground of so doing,
that the .-wii.. ,, i, from I,-..-r i...' (Mr. ARNOLD) had spo-
ken of ',, Pr,-.1. tw as the miserable wretch at the other
end of the avenue."
The CHAIRMAN decided that the gentleman from Ten-
nessee was out of order, for Y, tifirm,' in disrespectful terms to
the President of the United *'i.
Mr. STEENROD desired to call the consideration ofth(
House to one fact. The gentleman from Tennessee, (Mr.
ARNOLD,) during the whore of this session of Congress, had
been the first to call to order-
Mr. ARNOLD. And I have been the first man to obey
the rules of order.
Mr. STEENROD. And he has been the first to vio-
After some conversation-
The CHAIRMAN persisting in his decision that the gen.
tleman from Tennessee was out of order-
Mr. ARNOLD appealed from the decision.
And, Mr. A. said, he would briefly state the grounds or!
which hie had appealed. He did not intend to take back a
word he had said ; lie had never been afraid of responsibility3
here or elsewhere. He despised that poor, miserable, truck
ling system of politics, which made a man afraid to speak the
truth. He had said, in his remarks, that he did not know

which the decision lihad been made should be reduced tI
Some further proceedings followed, when-
Mr. ARNOLD, at the request, he said, of some friend..
around him, withdrew his appeal.
Mr. INGERSOLL rose to renew the appeal from the de
cision of the Chair. Mr. I. contended that it was the right
of the member, so long as he did not invoke the influence o'
the Executive, to speak of him in any terms that he might
please ; always remembering that he did so on his own per-
sonal and representative responsil iity.
Mr. ARNOLD, whilst he thanked the gentleman from
Pennsylvania (Mr. INGERSOLL) for the liberal views he ex
pressed in relation to freedom of debate in this House, hoped
the gentleman would nut insist on his appeal.
Mr. INGERSOLL said he would then, at the request of
the gentleman, withdraw his appeal.
After a remark from Mr. KEIM, which the Reporter
could not hear,
Mr. ARNOLD resumed his remarks, and proceeded with-
out further interruption until the expiration of the hour.
Mr. STANLY rose in reply. On the obvious and simple
question whether the Government should pay its debt to th(
mail contractors, he said, there had sprung up a party de-
bate of a violent character, much resembling one that took
place at the last session. Since this was the case, andt couhl
nuot now be prevented, Mr. S. wished to say a few word-
in remark upon what had bI.en said, during the debate, by
some of his political friends, who had once aided, during thn
late election, to bear aloft the victorious banner on which
was inscribed, Tippecanoe and Tyler too."
[A voice-" No ; no Tyler too."]
Yes: I say Tyler too." And the motto is hallowed-is
consecrated in the memory of that glorious army which, on
this sign, marched onward to victory.
After some observations in allusion to the speech of Mt
ARNOLD, of Tennessee, Mr. STANLY went on to say that
a venerable colleague of the gentleman, (Mr. CavE JOHN
SON,) who, if rumor speaks the truth, is to be our next Posl-
master General, if Amos Kendall does not come back, ha,
shown us how much he knows of the subject oi f. .i.k.i.:-- .
skins. In a most violent speech ofhisagainsi Mr i'_ *-.' ....
(said Mr. S ) he has descended to the lowest degree of vile abus'
-so low that none but himself, of either party, would stool
to use sech language on this floor. The hyena alone, th,
meanest, the worst looking, the most hideous and rcvolthini
of all the animal creation, preys upon the dead. Yet scarce,
had the body of WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON been borne to
North Bend, and reached its last, its long repose-that re
pose from which it sh-all not awake till the trumpet shall sumn
mon it to that judgment for which, as I believe, its spirit i.-
prepared, and from which it shall soar to mingle forever with
the fellowship of the purified spirits on high-than the miser
able, the shameful-I will abstain from using harsher epi
thets, however they may be merited-the miserable and shame-
ful attempt was conceived to make material for party contest
out of the appropriation to pay the expenses of his funeral!
an attempt from which every human being with one feeling
of humanity or honor in his bosom must have turned with
.t.iurt, and abhorrence. God helpt the Administration!
God help the country God deliver us, if this is to be one ot
our heads of Deparimentt Then we h-yve had a gentleman,
from Illinois, who co sues rushing fresh from the saw i's, and
from tie buffaloes of the prairies-just from among the Potta
watamios, (mf any of them are left there)-and on the second
day ot his appearance on this floor he informs us that there is
to he a disselutiom of the Cabinet, and that the .'. tun,:r,,
who now honor and adorn the Departments of this Govern-
ment by -.r i.ii.'miu .. t i, t, i, t., "get their walking papers!"
Sir, if he had ever known those men-if he had ever en-
joyed but a single hour with them ia private company, he
would have been the last man to apply to gentlemen of their
talents and standing, and refined and gentlemanly bearing,
language of this description. The present Executive Cabinet
is composed of the best, the highest-minded, and the ablest
men since the days of WASasINGTON. Can the gentleman
suppose that men like these entertain any great horror at the
thought (to use the gentleman's polished phrase) of" getting
their walking papems't-that the calm ot private life-where
they are most honored, because there they are the most tho-
roughly known-has any horrors for them 1 No, sir, no. It
would te hut a happy and welcome release from the cares of
that official station which, from them, gains more of dignity
than it confers. Such remarks do not come with a good grace
from a gentleman who has hardly shaken the dust of travel
from his clothes, arid who, though he hasscarce placed his foot
upon this floor, undertakes to proclaim, in advance, that such
men as now compose the Council of the President are to" get
their walking papers.t No, gentlemen-lay not that flatter-
ing unction to your souls. But if it were true-if this Cabi-
net were to be dissolved-awhat will you gain by it'? Do you
want to take John Tyler into your treacherous and malig-
nant embraces? What hare you to do with a dissolution of
the Whig Cabinet'? Do you want some fat Receiver's
place to be secured'? Or do you seek the appointment of
some postmaster, who shall frank all sorts of papers and( pam-
phlets on the subject of Abolition 1 Why you know perfect-
ly well that there is not a man here who would take up John
Tyler as his candidate,at the end of his present four years' term.
You chuckle, andt rejoice, and almost burst your sides with
laughing at the fancied discord in the Whig ranks ; but not
one man of you has had the courage or the grace to say, here
in your places, that you will support John Tyler as your Pre-
sidential candidate, as a reward for his veto on the bank bill.
None of you will say this, though you can hang raund the
avenues of the palace, fawning upon the President,and vol-
unteering advice till he is worn out by your importunities to
break with his own friends and come into your keeping, and
as soon as he does, and you have served yourselves of him,
you ate prepared to tomahawk him the very first opportunity.
A most extraordinary spectacle it is which we witness from
day to day. The gentleman does not know the counsels of
his own party, nor does he understand what he is talking
about, when he prophesies so confidently the dismissal of the
present Cabinet. When the Cabinet and the President part,
they will part on great principles-they will part like friends
arnd like gentlemen. They are willing to part when such a
case shall occur; they are entirely ready to go whenever the
remotest wish shall be expressed. Retirement has blandish-
ments for men like these, beyond the utmost stretch of the Il-
linois gentleman's mind or conception; ay, charms beyond
the profits of the fattest receiver's office-beyond a grant of
tbe richest prairie lands,

shown any disposition on his part to leave his connexion with
the party which placed him in power I have seen no evi-
dence of it. Has he departed from his good Whig principles?
I do not know in what particular. The gentleman said I
hadl no power to read him out of the Whig church. Well,
sir, I have not. Nor can the gentleman, no Whig" as he
is, real John Tyler out of that church.

he has done nothing to make that at all certain.

The gentleman loves the memory of Gen. Harrison. Well,
sir, if Harrison was, as the gentoleoan truly says, benevolent,
kind hearted, patriotic, brave, sincere, should we not remem-
ber that John Tyler shared his personal esteem ? Are we
quite to forget that?
[Mr. ARNOLD here interposed to explain, declaring that no
man once entertained kinder feelings toward Mr. Tyler than
he; that it filled his bosom with unutterable pain to change
his opinion of him ; but most certain he was that if his ven-
erable and beloved friend, Wim. H. Harrison, (fir he was
long his personal and intimate friend,) had lived to witness
what had recently taken place, his feelings would have un-
dergone a like change with Mr. A.'s, and he would have done
just the same.]
Ah that comes from one who says he is no Whig."
[Mr. ARNOLD. It comes from a friend of his country ]

for me. Does the gentleman remember who wert. I._., ,',"
to the Harrisburg Convention One of them is ,..% I ..i .r-
me,(Mr. BOARDMAN, of Connecticut,) and I see some round
me who received the Harrisburg nomination with joy, who
are now fighting with all their strength against it; while
others, who denounced it with abhorrence, are now become
its chief advocates anti defenders. Does the gentleman from
Tennessee remember that John Tyler went to that Conven-
tion to vote for Henry Clay'S Ought he not to be judged
with some charity'? Charity bhlieveth all things, endureth
all things, hopeth all things; and every Whig ought to exer-
cise a little of it toward his own President. I am not ready
to surrender the President to the Locofocos. No, sir; he
could not live in that atmosphere; he could have no rest in
that camp. He has no common principles with those men;
they have neither part nor lot in his heart. His heart is
Whig. I do nut myself know how or wherein the President
differs in principle from us. It is true that we wanted a
bank; ant ninety-nine out of a hundred of the friends of a
hank would have preferred an old-fashioned United States
Bank. This the President cannot agree to; but he is will-
ing, so far as appears, to give us a bank, though it must not
be a bank of discount. In his Ve'o message he certainly in-
timates that he can sign a bank for depo:-it e imil ex,'han.-' v

so far as he can do it without a sacrifice .i' il n 1 o-'-

measured terms. I have heard much more said against him
than has now fallen from thegentleman from Tennessee, and
heard it with many pangs of heart.
Mr. S. said he would not allude to the course or the lan-
guage of the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr. WisE,) whose
course had always been erra'ic, though his talents command-
ed respect. That gentleman was no Whig. And he would
say to 1, *,r t,'li. ,i ,i that the army he sought to rally, and
at the :,, ,. ..i n ri t, he seemed desirous to place himself,
were altogether too puny to do the Whig party of this coun.
try any harm. The gentleman might as well shoot arrows
at the sun as attempt by such assailants to impair the Whig
And what had been the course of others'? One had said
that he would rather die in the Whig ranks than live with
the Locofocos Yet that same gentleman who would so
greatly prefer dying with the Whigs had made a speech here
fur the very purpose, as' it would seem, of blowing up the
flames of discord which should destroy, if possible, the Whig
party and all its hopes. Mr. S. said he never in his life had
heard such an ungracious, unsparing attack, from one who
was ready to die for his political friends. Dying, said Mr. S.
is a terrible thing ; though we must all come to it.
"tTo die, and go we know not where;
To lie in cold obstruction, and to rot;
This sensible warm motion to become
A kneaded clod : and the delighted spirit
To bathe in fiery floods, or to reside
In thrilling regions of thick-ribbed ice ;
To be imprisoned in the viewless winds,
And blown with restless violence about
The pendant world --
Yet I would rather endure all that-(could I indeed have
fortitude to endure such things)-not than live with the Lo-
cofocos: no-but, than live, antd] be a Whig, and yet endea-
vor, by an unceasing, never-sleeping, never-tiring effort, to se-
parate a great and patriotic party to which I had looked my-
self, and persuaded all others to look, for the only prospect of
'ny country's happiness. The gentleman says he has been
denounced. But if, because we are attacked in some petty
newspaper, because our name gets into Mrs. Royall's paper-
though that is a very good paper, and I am far from meaning
to say any thing against it, (a laugh)-we are to fly off at a
tangent, as the gentleman has done, why we shall all very
soon be at loggerheads. I have heard no denunciation of the
gentleman; but when a man's mind is in that excited, jeal-
ous, sensitive state that it seeks denunciation, it is never at a
loss to find it. My friend from Indiana (Mr. PROFFIT) has,
1 admit, done excellent service to the cause in his own State;
he has worked hard, (though if he ever sat up all night with
h fijkii,.. documents, I certainly was not aware of hIis
,r, ,. ,it we ever franked for fifteen minutes together in
his life, I do riot know of it;) he could frank most desper-
ate ly for Tippecanoe; and when he fought, could fight fuor a
time harder than almost any man I ever saw ; but he was as
imprudent in his zeal as my friend from Virginia near me,
kMr. BOTTS,) who writes a letter which a cabal here by some
base means get hold of and endeavor to use-a private letter-
as evidence that the whole Whig party hold the same senti-
ments as thie writer of it. The charge is false as hell. I
know the gentleman from Virginia needs no defender: he is
able to manage his own cause. He is ardent and somewhat
tempestuous sometimes, and I could wish he had a little more
of the Whig mildness antil I t, t1, ,I -

Mr. BOTTS. By what right does the gentleman from
North Carolina denounce my imprudence in writing a letter,
if the letter is, as he says, a private one'
I do not denounce the gentleman's letter. I only deny that
it is an exponent of the views and feelings of the Whig party.
[Mr. BoTrsS here said something not heard by the Re-
I have not denounced his letter; but I can denounce it, if
ho wants me to: and I will, and do. Nor have I heard of
one solitary Whig, it this Liouse or out of it, who did not
condemn the whole spirit of the letter. The Whigs can pros-
per and prevail only I.- .: .u,' on in a united spirit of har-
mony, as one great .,,,i .,, aruirhers. They must compro-
mise all minor differences of opinion. I, as a Whig, will be
the last man ever to head" a Whig President.
Mr. BOTTS again spoke.]
fthe gentleman from Virginia wants me to, I will denounce
the letter; and I repeat what I said, that I have miot heard a
single Whig speak of it that did not disapprove its spirit and
I have not much to say further. I have looked with sur-
prise at gentlemen who have spoken of the President in terms
of contempt, and who seem disposed to enlist themselves,
without cause, in a design to scatter disaffection, andh sow the
seeds of discord among the members of the Whig party. I
regret it from the bottom of my heart. Instead of pursuing
so suicidal a course, let us rather, in a broad and patriotic
spirit, unite ourselves as a band of brethren. l am ready to
fight under President Tyler, or any other Whig President,
tor our common Whig principles. I ask no favors from any
President. Whenever he departs from Whig principles, I
am ready to quarrel in that cause. And if so great a calam-
ity is, in the wrath of Heaven, to fall upon our country, I am
ready to draw the sword and to throw away the scabbard.
As things are, I know no distinction, I will know none, be-
tween Tippecanoet and Tyler too." We are all of one
party. As one party, we achieved at the last election the
greatest, most brilliant, most decided, most triumphant victory
which the annals of this country can show. We achieved
it by union. I desire, for one, to preserve it. And it is a
vain hope our adversaries entertain, that, because they
may succeed in detaching one here and another there
from our ranks, they shall separate our party into frag-
mnents, or separate the President from the friends who
gave him, in spite of their.utmost efforts, his elevation to
office. When John Tyler separates from us, he falls. But,
with the same reliance on the aid of a superintending and
rmerciful Providence with which 1 entered into thegreat Whig
contest, trusting that He whose shield was thrown around
George Washington, and who led our fathers through the
flood and through the desert into a wealthy place, will not
now desert us, their children, fighting for the same principles,
I am ready to fight under the old Whig banner; and I here
invite the gentleman from Indiana (Mr. PROF'IT) back again
into our ranks. After he has done so much with us in the
common cause, after he has rendered such important service
to win us the victory in the great West, I invite him to come
and aid me, with his stronger and his bolder arm, to lift that
banner to the breeze. There let it fly over a brave and uni-
ted host; and let our enemies again tremble, as they have
once trembled and fled, as they read upon that triumphant flag
the well-known legend TiPPECeaNOE AND TYLER TOO."
Mr. BOTTS rose to explain. He said he was never less
excited in his life; for he was fully aware that his friend from
North Carolina (Mr. STANLY) never let an opportunity slip
of giving a gird at somebody; he scored alike friend and foe.
Nor ought he to complain when others scored him.
Mr. STANLY. Certainly not, when I deserve it.
Well, if the gentleman gets all the scoring he deserves, I

A TTHENTIC FROM FLORIDn.
By a communication dated the 8th instant, re;
ceived at the Department of War, from Colonel
WORTH, commanding the army in Florida, it ap-
pears that the number of Indian captures contin-
ues to increase.
On the 8th of last month, Sergeant NASHI, of
the 8th Infantry, captured the remainder of Coosa
Coacoochee's band, five in number. From these
the position of twenty-five of Halleck's band was
ascertained, of which Capt. GWYNNE succeeded,
without bloodshed, in securing the chief and two
warriors. The rest had abandoned their camp be-
fore Captain G. succeeded in penetrating to their
hiding-place. Their crops, the most fruitful yet
discovered, and covering thirty acres, were de-
stroyed. Two of these confessed having partici-
pated in the murder of an express in April last,
under the sub-chief Waxahadjo, who was secured
at the time and executed. The alternative having
been submitted to them, of securing the presence
of the rest of their people or of sharing the fate of
their leader, they immediately despatched a mes-
senger to them tor that purpose, and no doubt is
entertained of a successful result. This capture
will probably serve to operate upon their chief,
Halleck, and other bands in the same neighbor-
The chief of the Seminole Indians, who, with
the Mickasukies, are in the southern part of the
peninsula, had promised to meet Colonel W. at
a place appointed, next moon. The latter mani-
fest, as yet, no disposition to yield, but strong
hopes are entertained that this will before long be
brought about. Two hundred and one Indians,
in all, are now in at Tampa, and there is every
prospect of a speedy pacification of the country
west of that place. The effect of this would be
to facilitate the operations south. Very consid-
erable reduction has been made in the expendi-
tures, and every thing promises well.
There is something so extraordinary in the cir-
cumstance of the late horrid catastrophe at Syra-
cuse, where thirty human souls have been blown
into eternity by the explosion of gunpowder in a
carpenter's shop on the bank of the canal, as to
attract more than an ordinary share of the public
attention. It is said, in one of the accounts, that
about twenty-five barrels was the quantity of gun-
powder exploded. The existence of such a de-
posite of powder in that place was a secret; or
the People with their engines, and the spectators,
men, women, and children, would not have crowd-
ed around the flames as they did, but would, on
the contrary, have run from them. How came a
deposit of twenty-five barrels of gunpowder to be
made in such a place? We have had reports, for
a week or two past, of secret preparations on the
Northden frontier for another patriotic (piratical)
invasion of the British territory, and of deposits
of munitions and means for these incendiary anti
predatory movements being made at different
points, stealthily, and some by actual theft, as in
the case of the State's cannon stolen. Was this
quantity of gunpowder, concealed in a carpenter's
shop, one of those deposits? This is a point
well worth looking into ; and, should it turn out
to be as we suspect, it is hoped that every real
patriot in that part of the country-every manm
who values the peace and welfare of his own
country, and abhors ruffianism in any form or
guise, will be on the alert to detect and defeat
the plans of the conspirators against their coun-
try's honor and against the peace of the frontier.

VALUABLE VIRGINIA LANDS FtoR SALE.-
One thousand and fifty acres, situated in the county ol
Orange, Va. about four miles from Barboursvile, anti nine from
the court-house, on the road '% ,i;,, from thie latter place, and by
the former to Chatlottesville. It,.- is part of the estate of the
late Col, Macon, known as Somerset, and is believed to be o ne ol
the most desirable and valuable estates in that beautiful and
fertile country, having all the advantages of the finest society.
The view from the dwelling-house is one of the most magnificent
mountain prospects in Virginia. The improvements are excellent,
and on a large scale, but having been long in the hands of ten-
ants, are somewhat out of repair. They consist of a very large
brick house with four rooms, closets, passage, &c. on each floor;
a large barn, kitchen, and smoke-house, and an excellent well ol
water in the yard, besides many good springs. It is believed that
an outlay of $2,000 will put the buildings in complete order, and
that they will then be worth more than is asked fir the estate.
There are upwards of 100 acres in clover, and about 60 of meadow
Also, about eighteen hundred acres in thei county of Goochland,

CAPITOL HILL SEMINARY FOR YOUNG
LADI ES.--The Trustees of this Seminary arc happy to
announce to thI citizens that they have secured the services of
Mr. Lorieng B. True, as principal, in the place of Mr. 0. N. Stod-
dard, resigned. Mr. True is a graduate of Bowdoin C-.-I, ..
and produces very satisfactmoy testimonials of his literary I,"i-.
cations and of his success as a teacher, having been principal of
some of the high schools and academies in Maine. Hie will be
assisted by his lady, who possesses a finished education, and un-
der whom we trust the Seminary will not be surpassed in its in-
trinsic advantages by any other.
Thie .-nI lin.', being new and expressly designed for the school,
is situated near the Capitol, on an elevation alfording a beau-
tiful prospect, with a pure and healthy atmosphere.
Our course of studies is at once complete, and of such a selec-
tion and so arranged tlihat, with skilful instruction, no mind can
escape without a most thorough and liberal education. The course
is divided into three distinct classes--Junior, M rl.-lr, and Senior.
The studies of the Junior Class are as follows : Orthography,
R. I;,., WVriting, Defining, Arithmetnic, English Grammar, Par-
I- .'. I II l n of the United States, Botany for Beginners," and
Middle Class: Geography with use of Globesand construction
of Maps, Alitlhmetic, Grammar, Exercises in Poetry, Watts's In-
provesnent of the Mind, Comstoek's Natural Philosophy, Good-
rich's History of the United States, Tytler's Grimshaw's France,
Adams's Roman Antiquities, Goldsmith's England, Greece, and
Rome, Willard's Universal History, Composition.
Senior Class : French, Spanish, German, Burritt's Geography
of the Heavens, Mrs. Lincoln's Botany, Chemistry, Geology and
M;[. ri-..., .%\ii,_:-bra, Geometry, Application of Algebra to Ge-
.. ,,. in. r,,I's Moral Science, Abercrombie on ithe Intellec-
tual Powers, Abercrombie on the Moral Feelings, Natural Theol-
ogy, Pl .. ; I-.: P-ilosophv of Natural History, Political Econo-
my, I ,- 1r.. r-i ', Elements of Criticism, Mental Philosophy,
Composition amtd Elocution, Latin, and Greek.
FRimiliar Lctanes on Chemis ry and Natural Philosophy will
be delivered weekly by the Principal; which, with the assistance
of an additional uand well-selected apparatus, must be a source of
much utility to tie school.
Mr. T. proposes admitting an advanced class of young ladies,
who may consider their t .I.' i, it ; .' ,Ib i-..t I i -'ii would like
a further knowledge of some particular science. Such ladies,
for convenience, c:zn pursue their studies at their roous, andt meet
their teachers and class only at recitation hours; which will be
arranged to siit them.
Tuition for the scholastic year of 46 weeks--
For the Junior Class $27 per annum.
For the Middle Class 6 do.
For the Senior Class 42 do.
For the convenience of those living near, and of| parents whose
alder children attend the school, a separate class will be formed
for those not prepared to enter the Junior Class, for which $20
per annum will be charged.
Application fior admission to be umade to thie Principal or any
member of the B)ard of Truitees. None admitted for a less pe-
riod than one term. Books, Stationery, &c. to be had at thie
school tit about wholesale prices.
N. B. It will be perceived that tire French and Spanish lan-
guages are embraced among the studies of the Senior Class, and
as Mr. and Mrs. True have had the s.i- ... r distinguished
teachers in these languages, and have e -. .. I.lii taught them,
thie opportunity of acquiring them is tihus afforded to all in our
Seminary without any extra charge.
In disciplining the nnmind, our obicct is to be thorough, rather
than superficial and showy; to train the mind to habits of
thought and rejection ; to form it for the realities of life and the
responsibilities of existence ; therefore no effort will be spared
that would contr.hute to the moral or intellectual good of the
'hie next term of the Institution to commence on the first day
of September following.
