SATURDAY, JANUARY, 29, 1842.
Jf Congress has as yet done nothing on the
subject of the apportionment. It will be seen
that other matters are engrossing the attention of
both Houses. In the mean time, different por
tions of our State, are in a ferment, as to the
claims of the different aspirants. We scarcely
receive a paper of our State, that does not
contain proceedings of a meeting of the people
bringing some would-be-Congressman before the
people. We have before us the proceedings of
a meeting ef the Democracy of Perry County,
in which Thomas B. English of Cape Gcrardeau,
is recommended and the delegates pledged to his
support. In Pulaski, the sovereigns have
spoken in favor of John P. Camphell, Esq., of
Green. This gantleman and Mr. Phelps, have
not scrupled to take the stump, throughout most
of the South West, and addressed the people,
in laudation of themselves, and abuse of the
other. Mr. Campbell has however been too '
hard for the man of "Tomato Pills." The South !

and divide and conquer they will, unless we pro-
cccd wilh more caution and frown down every
attempt to aggrandize one man, or any number
of men, at the sacrifice of the Democratic party.
J We learn that much dissatisfaction pre
vails in Lincoln, as to the nomination made at
the Newhope Convention, on the 8th inst., and
a meeting of the people is proposed to be held
in Troy. We hope that union, harmony, and
concert, will be adopted, and that nothing will
be done to jeopardize thc success of the Demo
cratic party in this firm and consistent Republi
By a table extracted from the Missouri Repor
ter, it will be seen that if 60,000 be adopted as
the ratio for the next apportionment, Missouri
will be entitled to six Representatives in thc next
Congress, with a fraction of 40G unrepresented.

We have nothing definite from Washington as
to the fate of the Bankrupt Bill. On the 15th
the whole day was consumed in the lower House
in questions of order, motions for adjournment.
&c. A resolution had been adopted requiring
the committee on the Judiciary, to report the
Bill for the repeal of the Bankrupt Law rnslan
(er. It was insisted by the anti-Repealers, that
the regular business of the House was in order,
the presentation of petitions. We present a
brief analysis of the proceedings during the re
mainder of the day.
Mr. Wise said, that as one of the majority
who had nassed the order reouinnp: the commit
tee on the Judiciary to report instanter, he had a
right to demand of that committee, that they
should now present their report in obedience to
the order of the House, and he accordingly did
eall on their chairman to make his report forth
Mr. Profitt said, that he concurred with the
gentleman from Virginia, that the question re
quired no motion. The order was imperative
and the report was the regular business of the
House, and the Committee was bound to comply
with it. The majority had passed the order, and
vit tli minority attempted to overrule it.
Mr. Johnson of Maryland, insisted that the
Question before the House was the motion of the
gentlemen of New York, Mr. J. C. Clark, calling
for the Honse to proceed wun me Dusiness oi re
ceiving petitions under the suspension of the
Mr. Marshall said, that the gentleman from
Maryland was mistaken. As soon as the Chair
had announced the decision on he adoption of the
resolution, and before the gentleman from rew
York got the floor, he (Mr. M.) rose in his
piace, ana distinctly called on tlie Committee on
the Judiciary for their report.
Mr. Garrett Davis pave notice that he unnlrl
on Monday next, ask leave to introduce a bill to
repeal the Bankrupt Act.
Mr. Arnold moved an adjourment : rejected,
yeas 87, nays 118.
Mr. Bernard, Chairman of he Committee on
the Judiciary, desired to state to the House dis
tinctly that he considered the order of the House
passed on the 8lh instant imperative, and that it
did not require the order ot the day to give it new
force. He had been ready to report in obedience
to the order of the House, ever since Tuesday
last, and he held himself ready to report the bill
now, li it was the pleasure ot the House to re
Cries of "now, now," and on the other hand,
Mr. Saunders said, that he understood the
Chairman to say that he considered the order on
the Committee as imperative, and that he held
himself ready to report now, if the House would
receive the report. Now he, Mr. Saunders, had
received instructions from the Committee since
the order of to-day was passed ; and he now
rose, in obedience to the order of the House,
and asked leave to report a bill to repeal the
Act: - ,
Oreat confusion, calls to order, and frequent
calls on the Speaker for his decision.-j
The Speaker said, that it must be obvious to
the House that the question presented was a
new and difficult one. There was no precedent
ucaiinif on u to ue lounu on me journals. It
ib ... ' . """"
was clear to him that the House could determine
upon thc ordcr of i(s business. Let the Chair
decide either way, a majority of the House could,
upon an appeal, decide the question. It was not
