"Neutrality" shall have a place next week.
We are under obligations to the Hos.

The Retort. The report of the se
lect committee appointed to consider the
veto message of the President, is but a
reiteration of the abuse heaped upon the
President by the organs of his own party
because, forsooth, he has wisely vetoed
the "distribution tarifTbill," an act which
every honest politician is ready to ac
knowledge has saved the country from
the ruinous consequences that would in
inevitably result from such a measure.
The most inveterate opposcrs of Mr Ty
ler, who, by-the-bye, are the leuing
members of the parly tbat elected him,
have taken ground that places them be
fore the people in Gicir true colours.
On the 19th inst. another revenue bill
was introduced in the House, which will
insure revenue and incidental protection
to manufactures. Though the bill was
introduced by Mr. Ingcrsoll it is thought
that it will receive the support of a por
tion of the more moderate of the whigs,
from the consideration" that a move
has been made by the manufacturers in
favor of a tariff bill without distribution.
The Ncwbureport Herald says: "A
petition was circulated yesterday in
town, urging upon Congress to pass a
Tareffand Revenue Bill, disconnected
with the Land Bill. Almost every indl
vidual who saw it, gladly affixed his sig
nrturc to the petition."
A writer in the Boston Courier says,
the leading party in Congress have cou
pled the distribution measure with the
vital one of providing a revenue for the
country, and of saving the manufacturing,
mercantile and mechanic interests from
their impending ruin. They have done
so with a knowledge that it would be
vetoed by the executive; and what is to
be gained by this absurd, not to say un
principled attempt, to gratify past per
sonal and political animosity, at the ex
pense of the whole nation."
The editor of the Boston Courier re'
marks as follows in reference to distri
bution: "We do not believe there are ten
men in New England who care two far

nue are wanted and must be had. It is
evident they cannot be had with distribu
tion; for mercy's sake, then let us have
it milhovi distribution.""
So it seems that in the manufacturing
districts the feeling is decidedly in favor
of a tariff and a revenue, even though it
should be necessary to drop the favorite
distribution scheme to accomplish it.
8,000 Whigs is Concil! The Cin
cinnati Gazette of the 22d inst says:
"The meeting of the Whigs at Hamilton
on Saturday was a most spirited a.Tuir.
Eight thousand at least were there ! The
farmers, with their wives and daughters,
were there. The mechanics were there
and they brought with them their work
shops. The multitude were there; "an
army with banners." The same old coon
that was out in 1840, was there, w ith
several young ones. The speeches of
Messrs. Slorer, Schenck, Corwin and
Soulhgatc were admirable. The reso
lutions were excellent and spirit-stirring.
Clay, Davis and Corwin were
brought out, and the resignation of the
hig members heartily approved.
Resolutions condemning the course of
Capt. Tyler, and requesting him to re
sign Lis office, were unanimously adopt
ed!" The old coon was there too. Well,
we were in hopes that that auxiliary at
least, would not have been called into re
quisition during the present campaign.

Count v. On the night of the 2Gth inst.
Maj. G. B. Floyd, who resided about
three miles from St. Louis, was aroused
from sleep by the sound of foot-steps
about his house. He took a double bar
reled gun in his hand, and immediately
opened the door, when he was assailed
by five men, armed with clubs and
knives. He snapped his gun at the in t
but both caps burst without discharging
the piece. After an ineffectual attempt
to beat them off, he was overpowered and
stabbed in several places. Mrs. Floyd
was knocked down at the coinmiccrocr
of the assault. The villains ransacked
the house, broke open, trunks, drawers,
&c, in (teach 'Jl money, but obtained on

when he expired. The villains were
traced to St. Louis and arrested. One
of them effected his escape on the night
of the arrest; the other four were to un
dergo an examination on Monday last.
Fanaticism. Miller, who pretends
that the second advent will take place in

An exchange paper says the Whigs of
Pennsylvania arc making a strong move

They contend that the concentrated

Mr, Clay's previous defeats, and assert
that the party can only be united by
means of a National Convention.

Mr. Fillmore moved for a call of
the House, in order that there might
be a full vote on ttiis reso.ution. which
he regarded as a test of the determi
nation of the House, on the subject
of passing a revenue bill at this ses
sion. Alter the call had been made,
the House proceeded to vote; sever
al Whigs, Mr. Fillmore among the
number, not answeiing when the
names were reap by the clerk.
Mr. Wise inquired, if the House
could not compel every member pres
ent to vote, or ptuiidi him for refu
sing. The Speaker answered that the
House had vc ngiu so u uo. .,.
Wise then slated that Messrs. Mathiot
and Calhoun of Massachusetts had
not voted. Their mines were then
called and Mr. Calhoun voted in the
affirmative, Mr. M. in the negative.
M. McClellan of N. Y. asked that
the name of the chairman of the
Committee on W ays and Means Mr.
Fillmore, should be called. Mr. Fill
more then rose and said, tlnt4as his
colleague was so anxious about the
matter be would answer to his name,;
and vote no against his own resolu
tion. The vote stood for the resolu
tion 8G. against it 114.
Mr. VV. W. Irwin, of Pennsplva
nia, rose and moved that the rules of
the House be suspended, lor the pur
pose of enabling him to introduce a
bill entitled, "A bill to provide reve
nue from imports, and to change and
modify existing laws imposing duties
on imports, and for other purposes."
This bill is substantially the same bill
as that returned by the President
with his objections, striking out the
27th section, which repealed the pro
viso in the laud distribution law, of
the extra session, and admitting tea
imported in American vessels from
beyond the Cape of Good Hope, and
coiTee, free of duty. The House
then adjourned, the Speaker an
nouncing that Mr. Irwin's motion
would be the first business in the or
ders of the day the next morning.
In the Senate on the 19lh, an inef
fectual effort was made to take up
the resolution fixing the day of ad

In the House, lifter the considera

Mr. Campbell of S. C. movod that
the Committee of Ways and Means
be instructed to report forthwith a

Compromise Act. The House refus
ed to suspend ihe rules to receive the
resolution. Mr. Everett offered a
resolution directing the Committee ol
Ways and Means t report a bill
which be submitted reject, ayes 81,
noes 105. Mr. C. J. Ingersoll offer
ed a resolution from the Committee
on the Judiciary, in relation to the
collection of tiie revenue. Objec

ed that the House go into Committee
of the Whole, and gave notice that
he should then propose to take up
the bill to supply a temporary defect
or failure in the laws relating to the
oiled ion-of duties on imports. Mr.
Ii win claimed the floor, on his mo
tion of the preceding day, to suspend

Mr. Barnard moved to amend the

modified his motion so as to make
the above bill an amendment, to be
inserted at tho end of the bill report
