duty permit, !?> conceal from our readers that our latest ad?
vices from Washington rq-t a shade <m the ?'anguine antici?
pations expr-'sso.; to and by us lust week in regard to the
futc of the Bank bill. It is now generally apprehended that
['resident Tyler will not consider the Constitutional difficulty
obviated by the amendment of Mr. Clay, an.l. should the l,i!I
ri.ive no farther modification, may feel constrained to re?
turn it with a Message, stating frankly the obstacle which
prevents his aliixinsr his signature in the present shape of the
bill. We do not say that such a course has been resolved
on ; for it is certain that the President i* very rnreful of giv?
ing expression t.> anv opinion calculated to influence the <!<?
liberations of Congress. We believe be has thus far kept
his own counsel; bat still the impression prevails and gains
strength that ho may withhold his assent from the present
bill. What will !?>? tip- consequences '
We meet a alass of gunpowder gentlemen who settle the
matter very easily. ' President Tylerhas no business to have
? any opinions?he must assent t<> the Lull as it posses Con
? gress?hot if nor, then M every thing go to ruin .' Tbu
' < auiiu-t must resign?Congress adjourn in a buff, the Whig
? purty dissolve, and every body fight every body on Iii- own
' hook tili chao* is eome again.
Now wo are not disposed to throw away so summarily the
fruits of twelve years' arduous struggle. We insist on main?
taining die union ami ascoi Jency of the Whig party, ' Bank
<u .No Batik.' Admitting that a National Bank of local dis?
count is (ns has boon asserted) one of the principle* of the
Whig party, we insist thai it is not the only principle. If
it should appear that we cannot get an efficient Bank, ami
that it wore better (which wo do not believe) to have nine
at nil than stioli it one us Mr. Tyler mill assent to, would it
be sensible to throw away what wo can havt?for what ? It
we cannot olitiiiii a good Hank, shall we resolve to lo?o the
Land Distribution, the Bankrupt Law, the Revenue Tariff,
initl the other measures of the Session 1 Because we cannoi
get all, shall we insanely refuse t<. have nn\ thing ? To what
??ml ' We can easily destroy the Whig ascendency, but wc
cannot depose Mr. Tyler. He will remain President for the
remainder of his term, at any rate. We may break up hi-'
< lubinet?wo may force him into a dependence upon the f!il
mer and Wise school of politicians for Counsellors; but what
sdiall we have gained l>y it .' The disgust of our friends and
the derision of our enemies. Nothing more.
We know not what the President may <lo with regard to
the pending Bank bill; but we know what the Win? party
?must do?Hold together, and respeel each other's honest
opinions. We cannot nil !>e suited with every thing; but
what will be made better by giving up the Government to the
away of Loco-Pocoism7 For our own pan, while ardently
desiring the establishment <>f n Batik, we no less ijesir..- the
passage of the Laud Bill, the Uniform Bankrupt Law, and a
readjustment of the Tariff next wintei under Whig auspices.
I in re is no one of llir-so measures which wo ran consent to
regard a- of less consequence than n Bank. And wc once
in ire emphatically assert that, come what may, the Cabinet '
Hsi not resi n. Congress mutt not adjourn, the Whig party
must not relax its discipltneorsuffcrany difference of opinion
to tuur its harmony, until these great ends are accomplished. |

THE SLAVE CONSPIRACY.
Later prom Bayou Sara.?The steamer Fulton, Capt.
HUher, arrived here yesterday, bringing news twenty-four
hours later than the Clipper. When Capt. Hilh'er left, the
inhabitants were under arms, aft i ?tili continued to make ur- i
rests of suspected negroes. Some 30 or 10 more of the
scoundrels had been imprisoned, and the citi/.en soldiers
were busily employed in ferreting out the hiding places of
. very individual upon whom suspicion rested'. The bavous,
sw amps. Jfcc iu the vicinity had all been explored. In one
place they found no less than fourteen of the ringleaders
who, ns soon a* they heard of the explosion of their murder?
ous scheme, denned their respective plantations and tied to
tiu. place of conccalmenL which, it seems, hud previously
been one of their rendexvous. The alarm spread with the
rapidity of lightning all along the coast, and every planter
submitted his slaves ton righi examination. Every white
man was doubly armed, und no negT? was allowed the free?
dom of passing from one plantation to another.
No trial had taken place up to the time of the Fulton's
leaving. Wc presume the trials are delayed in order that
the whtde mass of testimony ucaitut the negroes might be
brought forward ut one time, the confession of each one
weighed.in relation to the other, and the minutest informa?
tion respecting die organization collected.
The conduct of the planters in this affair reflects up-'n
them the highest credit They have acted with a cool stern
uo-.. which looked almost like merciful tenderness, when
couipared with the enormity ot the terrible enrae intended.

devotees of venerable abuses and corruptions, are beginning

manifest itself in tiie formation and policy of the new Ministry,

of briber/ deciding the contests in freehold constituencies of

intimidation and outrage in Ireland, nnd probablywith reason.
It is believed tbr-.t Peel will form his Cabinet, hurry through
i credit of $10,000,000 and a few necessary measures ?f nn

I suspended the execution of the order. The Minister re

When the military came out against them, they threw tiles
from the roofs of the bouses, injuring many. The troops be?

upon the prison, guarded by the National Guards, and sev?
eral insurgents rescued, with but feeble opposition. The
next day fresh barricades were raised and the telegraphs
pulled down. The next day the new Prefect left the town,
and the insurgents were soon quieted. It seems that a new
