We are getting up to our head and
ears, in matters ot'Legislation. but i u
rather of the impression nothing of impor- e
tanc willhbe done, as there is so tmuch
electioneering here. i'pon the subje-ct of a
Senator to the Congress of ihe United.
States, M'.r. Calhoun's resignation wshich
was referred to the Comnmittee ofC Wayis
and Means, was reported on to day. and ,
will be taken up for consideramion to-nmor
row, the report is an able one, and recomi
mend a set of resolutions coimptimnentairy,
tthat distinguished Senator and puoliti- dr
etan, all of which n ill pass, I suppo)4se in
unanimously. , at
Robert Quash Pinekacy is eced Scee- ,k
retary of State. Thomas Frean burveyor ie
General. We had an interestting contest|,
for Governor to day, on account of the op- re
position and unwillingness ont the part of m
many to support Geno. Hlammo'nd, the a
friends of Col. A lleton, urged his claims
contrary to the wishes and will of that gen.
ieman, which was expressed in a bermuti- ti,
ful speech in the face of the Legislature a Il,
few moments before the vote was taken, ga
but notwithstanding his requtest, "that he
would take it as a personal favor if hiii mri
friends would not vote for him," be-came er
v-ery near being elected, the result was as :lh
follows, Hammond eighty three, and AlIts- tl
soo seventy six, eighiy one (8I) being a hI
majority, consequently llammond~ was at
elected by a majority of two votes
From the report of te Committee of ib
Ways and Means, otn the report of tihe (I;
Comptroller General, it is a source of co-er
gratulation to the country on a smate of it
things so flattering and encouraging to the a
inserestof thepeople generally. WVehave ai
a balanee im the treasury of fifty two thou- v
sand seventy-four dollars and eighty tno m
cats, (5,074,U~2.) besides the amount of to
unasuspended appropriations, thrown hack i
ithe treasury by G~ov. Richardlson, to t he
amount of about ten thousand ($l,000O) s~
dollars. whbich follows us a matter ofeourse -w
that we have plenty of tmoney in the il
treasury, and our taxes will not lhe raised la
the present year. So far as I am conci ned e,
I will use my influence to reduae them. n
We have made a sweep at all salaried offi
cers, and wish to reduco thcm to the pro- tI
