Th. i.iAlioencer. In introducing the commn-

.M,.m. a. "otferina the leading ad
vantages formerly contemplated by the advo
cates of a United States Bank."
The correspondent puts in a similar claim for
Mr. Cmsi'e nnanciai project. But the corres
pondent goes a step further, and draws from the
funding of the National Debt of England, the
principal of wblcb can never be paid, an argu
ment in favor of funding a like permanent Na
tioual Debt in this country, and nuking it the
basis of a Government Bank, which shall fur
nish all the paper or bank currency needed.

It affords us pleasure to be able to record
thie merited condemnation of the conduct of
this Republican Congress, from a Republican
paper. Thia triflng on the part of Congress,
in these perilous times, is scarcely to be toler

posed by the Congressional committee, the
country is in a bad way. '

WASHINGTON, D. C., Dec 21, 1861.
p.Miure of f. Journal of Cummeree.1 As you
have allowed your Washington correspondent
td wantonly impute Improper inotivee to me
in oucricg an ameuauent, tne ovuor u.j, w
tlie bill authorlxiog the oOnslruction of twen'y
Imn 1aH tTllitKntw. vnil will not. I Drciume. re
fuse to publish tbe amendment ana my
upon It at taken from toe Congressional Globe.
C. L. VALLANDIGHAM
Mr., Vaulahdiohmi. I propose to modiiy
my amendment as follows: strike out of the bill
the words "by contract or otherwise, as he ehall
deem best for the publio interest," and modify
t a rMi u ao thut it anaii reaa ae louowi;
-Provided, Said gunboats shall be constructed
at the publio navy-yard so far as practicable, or
otherwise by contract or publio letting, to be
advertised at least ten aays previous iiu ou
ting, in two newspapers, lu the cities of Boston,
New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore."
There is no time limited in the bill as spott
ed by the committee on Naval Affairs.. The
limitation arises Irom tne necessities ui tun
case; from the difficulty of obtaining materials.
r or the purposea lor wnion tnese ooaw arc tu ue
used, thore Is, in my judgment, the most over
ruling neoessity that they should be coLstruoted
ae soon as possible; and they will be needed in
case ot the occurrence with a ioreign power of
the war which eeems impending over us, and In
reference to questions of that kind, no man in
thia House will go further than I will in the sup
poit of this Administration in the voting of
men and money, and of all other means, tor the
vigorous and successful prosecution of that
war, if it cannot be honorably averted.. If it
ean be, then I am of that number who desire
to see no war at borne or abroad. But rather
than sacrifice houoi; rather than compromise the
dignity of this country; rather than yield prin
ciples which we have maintained for years and
jearj together, I am ready to meet the combined
hostility of the whole world; and that I believe
is tbe sentiment-of tha American people
Therefore it is, that while 1 am anxious that
these boats shall be built as speedily as possible
And more than that, that gunboats ehould be
placed upon the Western likes, whore we want
them to-day, and that bills may be introduced
lor that purpose I am anxious that tbey ehall
be built, with a view to the publio interest,
rkh mi inuuh cconomr as possible; and I am
the more cautious upon that point becauee tbe
investigating committee has reported tbe ap
pointment, by the Secretary of tbe Navy, of an
agent for the purohaee of vessels at a silary
hundred thousand dollars.
I think it Is time for us to Bee that no loop-hole
of that character be given now; aud therefore it
seeme to me that I have a right to say that it is
the duty of this buuie to embarrass tne secre
tary of the Navy, or any other executive officer,
mn that ha ihali not be ntrmitted to indulge in
extravagant expenditure of money either tot
purposes ol lavoriusm or who hchwmuot
without any purpose at all. 1 should have said
that the compensation of tho ageut was at tbe
rate of $3U0,000 a yearf and I also should have
said thai the appointee is a brother-in-law of the
Secretary of the Navy. Iu the present public
emereencv it is of the last importance that tbe
construction of those vessels shall commence at
the earliest possible moment. There is not an
hour to be lost. But at the same time it is our
right and duty to guard against any extravagance
on the part of those to whom we are obliged to
commit, orcnooee to commit, iutwuBv"
of these vessels.
Ia view of tbe infamous swindling that bas
been carried on by the War and Navy Depart
ments, as exposed by tho Congressional Com
mittee, who with one grain ot honesty can object
to tha Drooosition of Mr. Vallanoigham 7 It ii
eminently proper that all the restriction possible
should ie thrown around these men who have
bo wantonly stolen tbe public money.
The National Loan.
Tho first of the Treasury 7 3 10 note loans
taken by the banks on August J, amounting to
$50,000,000, has all been sold to tbe people,
and in order to close tbe accounts with agents,
and for other purposes, the Government with
drew them from the market until to day. Mr.
Cisco, United States assistant treasurer in this
city, bas notified ns that the department is now
ready to receive deposits for the Treasury 7

Maryland Resolutions Slavery.
In the Maryland Senate on
RnlHahnrnns-h. from the committee on Federal
Relations, to whom was referred Dr. Bayne's
rmninrion relation to the escape of slaves, re
ported the following, which were read twice and
adopted: ...
Whmbab, Maryland in her recent election has
unmistakably demonstrated tarougn me dsuoi
hnT her lovaltv and devotion to the Union, and
as one of the United States claims all the rights
under the Constitution; and
Whhias, we believe that the present war is
waged in bo spirit of hostility to the institu
tions of any ot ine states, qui boici; vu iu
dioate the integrity of the Union, and to re
store amity and peace among all parts thereof;
and
Whzrias, notwithstanding this policy it
sometimes happene that through the action of
individuals among the troops, negroes belong
ing to citizens of this State escape into the
lines of the Federal army, thereby causing
trouble and occasionally loss to their owners;
and ,
Whcrias, we desire to take some specific
action npon this subject; therefore
Resolotd, by the General Assembly of Maryland,
That a Joint Committe, to consist of three mem
bers npon the part of the Senate, and three upon
tbe part of the Honse of Delegates, be appoint
ed by the presiding officers of the two Houses
respectively, whose duty, it shall be to pro
ceed fortwith to Washington, and request an
interview with General McClellan, and solicit
tbe adoption of eome plan to prevent the
admission of fugitive elaves within the lines of
the army. . .. .
Resolvtd, That the said committee be directed
to report immediately on their return the result
of their mission. - -
D" Tbe Chicago Joarnel saye; Ca?t. Por
ter, Assistant Quartermaster, yesterday opened
the bids for furnishing a thousand horses for
Daniel's Cavalry regiment at Kenosha. There
were a large number of bids, ranging as high as
(110. Most of them were offered to take the
contract at $95. Tbe bid of Z. G. Sturman,
for $84 75, was found to be the lowest, and the
contract was let accordingly.
- If horses can be furnished for $84 75, why
in the world does the Government allow its
agents here and elsewhere to pay as high as
$105 to $110?
The answer is plain. That would not allow
some pet Republican wido awake to make his
ten thousand dollars.
CoiNCiDiKcx, The Pittsburg Dispatch says:
At tbe very spot where Colonel Geary was
cannonading tbe other day, at Point of Rocks,
he was operating a few years since as master
iron manufacturer. A friend thinks it extremely
probable that the " bouses shelled near the Old
Furnace" were erected by Col. Geary some
years ago. He had exteceive iron works there,
on both sides of the river, and is familiar with
every inch of tbe ground.
IT Female confidence operators abound In
New York. One handsome, elegantly dressed
Mrs. Morton recently swindled a jeweler out of
a gold chronometer watch and $800 worth of
diamonds, by having the goods pent to her ad
dress, paying for them in counterfeit money,
and decamping before tbe fraud wai detected.

Rail Road Time Table. Removal of the Post Office.
POST OFFICE, December 27, 1861.
Tha Post Office will be removed from IU
present site to the new office In the Nell House
block on Saturday evening, the 28th Inst. The
removal, however, trill not Interfere with the
maillot? and delivery of letters, eto at tue oia
office on the evening of (he removal up to the
n.nal hour of closlnt the Office (8 O CI0CK,
P. M ) Poreons havine matter w mau aiwr
8 o'clock on Saturday evening, should deposit
it In the letter-box ot the tront'door of the new
office.
lo order to enable the clerks to get things
regulated, the office will not be opened on Sun
diy, but will be opened on Monday morning
at tbe nsual Hour.
I would ask the indulgence of the patrons of
the office (box and drawer renters especially)
for a short time after tie removal, on account
of the want of the usual dispatch in the distri
bution of mstttr after tbe arrival of mails.
Rtpidlty of distribution and quickneai in the
delivery ol matter can only be acquired by be
coming familiar with tho situation of boxes
aud drawtw. This, with tbe closest appilci
tion, will require a little time. I hope, there
fore, that box and drawer renters will bave pa
tieooe with the box delivery clerks for a fesr
d;s, until they can become familiarized with
the locatioa of the boxes and drawers In the
new cases.
JOHN GRAHAM, Post Master.
Tux Riseluon RgcoaD.Tbls serial, edited
by Frank Moore and published by 0. P. Put
nam, New York, embodies a macs ol informa
tion relating to the progress of the Great Amer
ican Civil War, not to be found so well digested
and arranged in any other publication of the
day. It Is a work necessary, and we may add,
indispensable to every , one who would under
stand the past, and be prepared for tbe great
events and changes that may be expected eoon
to transpire in our country. Tne gratitude
every citizen is certainly due to the editor and
publisher for offering to him, at a moderate
price, so Important a "Record" as this.
In addition to the regular series, the first
part of a supplementary volume, to be followed
by the second part, has just been lesued, con
taining a colleotion of eermocs relating to tbe
present crisis, by distinguished Diviner, North
and South.
The second volume ot the Record is now in
progrets oi publication. Each person should
endeavor to possess tbe whole series from the
beginning. It Is published in weekly numbers
and monthly parts, at the rate of three dollars
a volume. Twenty-four weekly numbers and
two numbers of illustrations, or six monthly
parts with the illustrations, constitute a vol
ume. We have the first volume bound, and
would not be without It for ten times its cost.:
O A reoent letter from Smith E. Minturn
Of company C, Thirteenth Ohio, says: "While
we were in Louisville, the oitiiens of Marys
ville, Union county, Ohio, presented the old
Thirteenth Regiment with a splendid regl
mental flag, costing $72. It was presented
a Marytville laly (Mrs. Hawkins), In a neat
and appropriate address, which wag responded
to by our noble Colonel Smith.". ,
HT The Eighty-second Regiment, encamped
at Kenton, has nearly one thousand men en
rolled. ; ' - ;
BT It turns ont that the editor of the Toron
to Leader, whose feroeiont attacks on our gov
ernment have given it notoriety,' la named
Georze Sheppard, who was late editor of the
Washington Republic, late sub-editor of the
Washington Constitution, late agent of
"Breckinridge Central Committee," late Seces
sion writer at Richmond!
Am Old Nxwsrwia. The ChiUicothe Qi-
xette bas been favored with a copy of The New
England Weekly Journal, printed at Boston and
dated Monday April 8th, 1728, nearly ont hun
dred and thirtylour years ago. It is about the
site of a half sheet of writing psper, and ex
cept In the color of the paper, which Is a light
brown, will compare favorably In typographical
appearance with many joonnls of the present
day. Its latest news from Europe is dated Nov.
16, 1727, being pearly five months old. ' It re
ports the "number of burials In the town
Boston since onr laet, five whites, one black,
Number baptized In the ssveral churches, nine,"
In the column devoted to advertisements
find the following: .
ET A very likely Negro Woman who can
House wen, ana is nt euner for town or coun
try service, about 22 years of age. For eale
inquTe of the Printer hereon.
ILT A very likely negro girl, about 13 or
years of see, speaks good English: has been
in the country some years, to be sold.
ITT In the Tennessee Legislature recently,
(be following was offered as an amendment
the bill to prJteot the propeity of married
women, and is now awaiting action:
"Bt it furthir enacted, That all women,
