of the State, to beholden semi-annually,
in the respective circuits, and the Justl-jbv

To day the districting the Slate was
most unexpectedly called up by a reso
lution by Mr. Smart of Jackson, propo
sing that all matters connected with the
district system and resolutions in rela
tion to the "Mandamus Act," be post
poned until the first Thursday of Janua
ry 1N4.1. Mr. V hippie of Bent on, im-
mediately took fire and made a famous
speech against laying the matter over so
loner. He was so thoroughly opposed
to the dictation of Congress to sovereign
States, that he wanted the matter takeft
up at once. He wanted to know wheth
er the State of Missouri was to tamely
submit to an arbitrary command of a ty
rannical Congress, induced by a set of
mad and factious abolitionists, or whether
she would show herselt independent
and sovereign, and spurn such dictation
He continued some lilieen minutes in a
Bombattes Eurioso style, and concluded
by offering as a substitute, a resolution
relcrnnjr th whole matter to a commit
tec of the whole House, and making it
the order of the u;'y lor Monday next
Then came the tug of war. Dr. Scott of
Howard, spoke in favor of districting:
he' had") he said, been elected from How
ard, pledctcd to district the state. Mr,
Jackson of Howard,- followed in opposi
tion to districting, in a spirited speech
in which he said,- he' too bad been elect
cd from Howard; and pledged against
districting- and he stowed his determina
tion to carry crit that pledge. Then
came Mr. Hfldson cf St. Louis, in
very excellent speech of a half an hour
in favor of districting. Many other
J gentlemen participated in the debate, a-
. ..i r..
mong whom was Mr. Minor of Cole,
who made one of his accustomed speech'
cs. short and full of pretty words. Of
Mr. Minor, I may as well tell you, that
he is seeking to become the big gun on
currency matters in trie House. It i:
said that he has a string of ultra curren
cy resolutions for introduction after the
Or. Kedman style, a r. uonovan oi
your city participated in the debate. D.
is a very considerable speaker, and has
something to say upon every question
before the lleusc. lr. shields ol Coop
er, moved the previous question, when
Thursday, instead of the first Thursday
of January, and adopted.
So this exeking question is disposed
of for some time. When it does come
up, I opine it will be a cut and thrust
J business. The vote on the substitute to
the resolution was some indication as to
, the fate of the measure.. Those most
hostile to districting me aiaie were or

Coramittee, ; sure, it would be defeated. A great part
jof the morning was taken up with pre
jscnting petititions, resolutions and noli

committees the resolutions presented, was one very
I important one by Mr. Shields of Cooper,

navirration of the Western rivers, which
was unanimously adopted. Governor
