IN SENATE. FniDAV, April 15th.
Tho Vici) President presented a leport
from the commissioners of tho land office,
which wns ordered to bo printed.
CUSTOM HOUSE PATUONAOE.
Mr. Calhoun presented a memorial from
David Melville, complaining that ho had
been removed from an office held by him in
tho custom house, Newport R. I. ns weigher
and gaugcr nearly ten yenrs; that ho had
innuired iho reason for such removal by tho
. i .i..
collector, anu u was inumaicu 10 nun, mm
tho collector wns compelled to rcmovo him,
as ho had not qualified himself, or disqual
ified himself, from voting at elections in that
State, by tho sale of his freehold property.
He had npplicd to tho Secretary of the Treas
ury for redrwss which was not afforded him,
and who refused to communicate any reason
or justification for this act, which he (Mr. C.)
denounced as one of tho grossest oppression
Sjjhat had over colno to his knowledge. It
appeared that no office was too high or too
low to satiate the desire to proscribe those
who would not become tho minions of the
executive. The memorial fully laid bare
the party machinery by which elections were
mnnagud by a combination of demagogues,
and the case was one that claimed serious
investigation. Tho man remoldwas ac
knowledged to have discharged an tho du
, ijee'of his office with zeal and fidelity. He
moved the reference of tho memorial to the
Committee on Commerce.
Air. Clay stated that if the facts presented
in the memorial were true, it presented a
case of the most aggravated and arbitrary
oppression. But there was a difficulty in
the way, which he suggested that those Sen
ators who espoused tho expunging doctrines
only could rcmovo. The only remedy for
tho evil was impeachment of somebody,
whether Collector, secretary ot trio i reas
urv. or it mitrht be found to reach tho Pres
'dent himself. Ought not Senators who
maintained that doctrine to raise the prelim
inary question? If tho remedy was as he
stated, one to bo reached only by impeach
ment, it was a memorial which they ought
not to vote to receive. They could not con
stitutionally receive it. Ho threw this out
that Senators might test tho efficacy of their
own doctrine, and act upon it instanter.
Mr. King of Ala. remarked that no one
who knew him would suppose he would
sanction any net of oppression. He rather
suspected this took place during the admin
istration of Mr. Secretary Ingham, who cer
tainly had not proved himself the most stren
uous and consistent supporter of the Admin
istration. He considered tho Senate dis
charged their duties best, by receiving all
petitions, even those for abolition, and he
could not act on the suggestion of- the Sen-
ator from Kentucky.
Mr. Grundy knew the Collector to be so
honorable a man, that without further tvi
denco he was compelled to disbelieve the
Mr. Niles ridiculed the idea that thero
was any oppression in tho case. It was the
simple caso of a custom house officer re
moved by the competent authority, by and
with tho approbation of the Secretary of ths
Treasury. There was a prima facie case,
then, that he had been rightfully removed.
As to what was said about impeachment
Tor it, lie bolievcd there wore just as good
grounds to impeach for this removal ns thero
were for tho removal of tho Depositcs. Tho
memorialist talked of party proscription, of
demagogues, tyranny and oppression; what
interest had tho Senate in such matters 1
Why did he not tell a simple story, and not
mix it up with politics? No I he rather
wished to send it here for political purposes,
and ho had sent it to bo presented by the
Scr.ator from South Carolina, who wished
to do.iy to the President the power of re
moval from office. He contended that there
wns no violation of law in the removal, but
that it wns in accordance with that principle
on which tho government ought to be con
ducted, rotation in office. This was a doc
trino different from that held by the Senator
from South Carolina, who rathor maintained
in'his report on tho subject, that ofiico ought
to be a freehold a perpetuity.
Mr. Goldsboroutrh said, to avoid anv diffi
culty as to the suggestion thrown out about
impeachment, and as a similar memorial
would doubtless bo presented to tho House
of Representatives, it wns desirable tq post
pone action on it, he moved to lay tho me
morial on the table; but withdrew it in fa
Mr. Knight, who rose to state that al
though ho personally knew nothing of the
facts in tho memorial, yet that ho knew Mr.
Melville to bo a highly respectable man.
Mr. Hubbard said that there wns no alle
gation that the petitioner was improperly
removed, but from tho remarks made he
presumed it was intended to mako tho Sec
retary of the Treasury Mr. Woodbury, an
object of attack. Ho knew him well, and
would vouch that he was utterly incapable
of being concerned inn transaction of the
kind stigmatized by tho Senator from South
Carolina. Ho would vole for the reference.
Mr. Calhoun insisted that it was the dutv
of tho Secretary of the Treasury, as the
facts wcro rolnted to him, to havo investi
gated them. If they wcro correct, ho cer
tainly was to blame for not affording redress,
or removing tho Collector. Was he to
understand that it wns to be a nrincinle avow
ed, that officials, were to bo justified in dis-
l r I m i .
cnargmg a laimiui omcer oecniise ho had
no vote, or would.not obey a party mandate ?
Tho Collector had turned the man out, and
he acknowledged wjthout fnult committed
by him, and no pleaded in excuse, that it
was in obedience, no, that it wns in accord-
nnce with the dictation ofa combination of
pnrty men. Referring to what was said by
the Senator from Connecticut, ns to his main
mining the principles of perpetuity in office
there was not one syllable of the kind in
his report. Let the Senator read it if ho
hns not already.
Mr. King admitted ho was in error when
ho attributed this removal to Mr. Secretary
.Mr. Hubbard repeated that the removal
was by tho competent authority, and that tho
Secretary of tho Treasury would not shrink
from nny investigation.
- Mr. Calhoun maintained that officials had
not a property in office. They wero rcspon
siblo for its abuses to tho people, lor whom
thc acted as trustees, and not trustees for a
mere 'parly.' Tins was mo into uwctnn
of tho Constitution.
After some remarks from Mr. Clay and
Mr. Wnll said the matter was ono of fro
quent occuricncc, ns parties preponderated,
and those turned out complained. It. nil
proceeded from that republican principle,
which ho hoped would ever prevail ro
tation in office.
Mr. Crittenden wnrmly repelled the" doc
trino of tho Senator from Connecticut, that
llm nrnnln had II 0 interest in a enso of man-
ifnst nnnrossion of ono of their fellow citizens,
If rotation in office was to bo tho principle
on which gentlemen were to conduct tho
government, let them fix it by law, rnthcr
than hnvo the power of removal exercised at
discretion. Ho could not bcliovo that if the
facts of this case were mndo known to tho
President, ho would permit such petty tyran
ny throughout tho seaports of tho Union.
t The memorial was finally referred to the
Committee on Commerce,
Monday. April 18A. In tho Senate, tho
renort of the Secretary of the Treasury in
conformity with a resolution of the Senate,

the former vote of the House, to the Com

In the Houso of Representatives, the Com

REMARKABLE PREDICTION AND
It is a remarkable circumstance in the re

which now controls the niiairs ol this repub

POIiAND. . .
Since tho suppression of the Polish insur
rection, accounts from that country have
been few nnd far between. Little moro hns
been known of the internal condition of tho
Poles, than that they wero reduced to the
most abject subjection to the Russian power.
Our readers remember the insolent ad
dress of the Russian Emperor, some months
ngo, to a deputation from tho Polish Diet
of Warsaw. That address wns nt first
scarcely credited on account of tho despotifi
terms in which it was couched. It however,
proved to be a true version, und it excited
tho indignation of nil liberal minded men in
Europe nnd America. That address hus
been recently, followed up by n movement
which has nttrnctcd much attention in Eu
rone. nnd been noticed nt least by the Brit
ish Government. It appears that a body or
troops or the three great northern powers,
Russiu, Prussin nnd Austria self styled,
"the nrotectinn powers," on the 17th of Feb-
runry, ontcredlCrncow.and -took possession
of I hut ciiy luuniio' territory 6fthe Repub
lic. Tho invading corps wns under the
conynnnd or thu Austrian General Trau
mensleinburg. It would seem that the three powers had
previously demanded or tho Senate or Cra
cow, the expulsion oT certafn citizens or the
Republic who had been distinguished in the
ntlempled Polish Revolution, nnd that the
SemVc had neglected to Dave them expelled
The object of the invasion was to consum
mate, the expulsion: as soon ns the nrmv
arrived, those unfortunate citizens, to thu
number or 189, were immediately put unde
arrest, nnd it was supposed that they would
lie transported to America. A military fro
clnmation was made in reference to the dc
mnnd ofexpulsioiC in which it wns said:
This demand has not been complied with
bv the Government ol Cracow, notwithMund
ing the means generously offered to it. At
the conclusion or this proclamation he says,
meantime inc operations oi inc vuiniitis
(ration nnd judicial authorities or the Repub
lie experience no interruption : or course,
however, they are subordinate to the milita
ry authority in the measures thnt relate to
the public safety, and the clearing of the
territory ol the Republic. A second pro
clamntion enjoins, "those individuals, not no
tires of tho Republic, who in the capacity
oi oiuceis, suoauerns, or privates in me lor
mer Polish army, or whom any other man
ner took nn active part in the late Polisl
revolution, lo quit the territory within the
term ol six days, in the manner already sta'
ted, with the threat or severe punishment
lor them, and those who may harbor and
conceal them, even such ns hnvc been admit
tfd into the civil or military service or the
Republic, or havo acquired the rights or cit
izens, in the event or non-compliance."
On this intelligence reaching England in
tne House ol commons, on the 1st of March
Sir Strafford Canning called the attention of
Lord Palmerston to tho subject, nnd nsked
for information. He alluded to the Tiealy
or Vienna, which forbade the entrance of un
armed force into that enpitnl, and inquired if

In reply, Lord Palmerston admitted that
they had read in the newspapers similar
statements, but that the government had re
ceived no official information on the subject

i uiu etuiie iime iora i. said it wns not
improbable that tho three powers had taken
possession of the place, in violation of the
