Resolved, That the Committee on Military Affairs be instructed to report a bill increasing the pay of the volunteers from seven to ten dot lart per month, and granting to those who serve to the end of the war, or die in the service, one hundred and sixty acres of land. The said resolution was read : And the question being put?shall the rule be suspended ? It was decided in the negative, (two-thirds not voting in favor thereof,) yeas 70, nays 75. , The yeas and nays being desired by one-til tn of the members present.

All those whose nanies are in Roman were Tories of the first water, men who unscrupu lously sustained James K. Polk in all his usur pations ; and yet this Tory party claim to be the never-failing friends of the poor man, who has to work for his bread. Death of Dr. George McClellan. We regret | to announce the death of Dr. George McClel-1 Ian, a distinguished Surgeon and Physician of Philadelphia. Dr. McClellan was in good health on Saturday noon, but in the course of the afternoon, he was seized with a bilious cholic,* with such violence, that no application seemed to have any favorable effect, and about midnight he died. A Retrospect. Three hundred and five years ago, on the 10th May, 1502, Columbus sailed from Cadiz on his fourth voyage. In 1815, Dr. David Ramsey, the historian, a native Penn sylvanian, was killed by an insane man in Charleston, S. C., and in 1816 on the same day the American Bible Society was organ ized. Tt was also the anniversary of the battle of Resaca de la Palma, a vay that will never be forgotten,jfor it is the birth day of the second Washington of America. gcj- They have a 'calculating negro' in Lou - isvifle, who answers instantaneously any ques tion in mathematics which'is propounded to him: On all other subjects he is completely % idiotic, and the Journal says that he is as ig . norant of politics as the editor of the Tory 1 Union.

OCJ- The New York late tory Council abso lutely voted money to buy the portrait of Silas Wright, to ornament the Governor's room in the City Hall. No doubt they thought that the image would do what the original failed to do! ?Do you file the National Whig said a .Whig?' to a Tory. ?No?it's too sharp already.' Gilbert Stuart, the celebrated portrait paint er, once met a lady in the street, who saluted him with, 'Ah, Mr. Stuart, I have just seen yodr miniature, and I kissed it because it was ao much like you.* * 'And did it kfcs yoa in return V ?Why, no.' ?Theh,' said SftuaTt, 'it was not like me.' An Irishman, just arrived in this land ol plenty, being in want, ventured to solicit a lit tie aid from a person whose external appear ance seemed to indicate that he could easily afford it. He was, however, rudely repulsed with a 'Go to hell.' Pat looked at him in such a way as to Ox his attention, aud meekly re plied, 'God bless your honor for your civility, for you're the first gintleman's invited me to his father's house since I come to the land!' 'Mother, don't you wish you had the tree of evil in your garding?' ?Why, Josh, you sarpent, what do you xneanT ?As money'e the root of all evil, if we had the tree couldn't we get all the precious stuff?' 'Dod you, you pesky varmint, you're get ting too smart entirely; that's what comes of sending boys to macadonies.' An attempt to poison yourself is a rask act; but a slicfe of bacon is a rasher. A showery day ! it damp, but the refusal of a young lady is a damper. , ' The VucifiTRailroad. The resolutions in troduced into the Senate, in favor of Whitney's Railroad to the. Pacific* have been passed in both Houses of the New York /legislature by large majorities. In the Senate there was but one vote in the negative, and in the Assembly fifteen.

" A minister was once called upon to effect a reconciliation between a fisherman and his helpmate. After using all the arguments in his power to convince the offending husband that it is was unmanly to chastise his loving wife, the minister concluded, 'David you know that the wife is the weaker vessel, and you should have pity on her.' i "'Confound her!' replied the angry fisher man, 'if she's the weaker vessel, she should carry less sail.'

The quarrel originated about parched corn! He was arrested and made a full confession. The Vials of Wrath.?The Abolition pa pers of Ohio have already begun to uncork the V ials of Wrath and to pour their contents upon Gen. Taylor's head, The Clarion-of Freedom published at Jackson, Ohio thu? begins. It I calls the old Hero a "negro robber," "a devil," and says that "he was born to the meanness of unrequited wealth," that "he began to serve the devil in his early youth," that "he made his first effort at butchery when a beardless youth," that "he is the chief butcher of Mr. Polk," that "he has the confidence of Hell," that "he is the blood hound hero," See., &c. We commend these phrases to the especial attention of Mr. Ritchie who is preparing to follow in the steps of this abolition paper. FROM THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. We have received a file of the Polynesian, says the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser, extending from 10th of October to the 26th of December, 1846. Three columns of the latest Polynesian are occu pied by a review or examination of the purposes en tertained, or believed to be entertained by the govern ments of France, Great Britain and the U. States, with regard to the independence and sovereignty of the Sandwich Islands government, placed in contrast with the pretensions of certain "foreign officials" meaning, it appears, all the foreign consuls except those of France and the U. States. With reference to the officials of the latter country, the Polynesian ex pressly says that ever sicfce the arrival of Mr. Ten Eyck and Mr. Turriil every thing has gone on har moniously ; the laws and authorities of the islands have been respected ; and there has been no new case of complaint on the part of citizens of the U. States, brought to the notice of the Government.' Similar effects, it says, have resulted from the management of the French consul. The Polynesian gives copious extracts from Chap lain Colton's Caiifornian, but the dates are not so late as we have had here. It also copies a number of paragraphs from the Mormon paper at Yerba Buena, but they are ancient. Touching these Mor mons, by the way, we notice the following paragraph copied from the Caiifornian: The Mormons. There has been, it seems, an ir reconcilable split among the Mormons at San Fran cisco. The little volcano has been rumbling for some time, and has at last broke forth in flame. The re sult of this explosion will be to throw them into dif ferent parts of California. In this dissevered state ihey will undoubtedly do more good than a distinct communityi, They have habits of indu-try that can make them extensively useful; they are a plain, la borious, frugal, people, and little deserve the oppro biium which may be cast upon them.

Upharo, M. D., a regular educated Physician who has devoted filtcen years attention almost en tirely to this disease. The Electuary is a certain cure for the Piles, and also fer other diseases of a similar nature, which are frequently found in conjunction with Piles, Rashes, Inflammation of the Liver, and Spleen; Inflamma tion, Soreness, and Ulceration of the Stomach, Bow els, Kidneys, and Bladder ; Inflammatory and Mer curial Rheumatism ; Impurity of Blood ; Weakness and Inflammation of the Spine. , I THE VEGETABLE PILE ELECTUARY is the only really successful remedy for that dangerous I and distressing complaint, the PILES, ever offered to the American Public. Mark this: it is an INTERNAL REMEDY? not an extern*! application?and will cure any case of Piles, either Bleeding or Blind, Internal or Exter nal ; and probably the only -thing that will. There is'no mistake about it. It is a positive cure?speedy ihd permanent. It is also a convenient medicine to take, and improves the general health in a femarka ble mariner. It is very mild in its operation, and may be taken in cases of the most acute inflammation, without danger. All external applications are in the highest degree disagreeable, inconvenient, and offensive ; and from the very nature of the disease, temporary in their effects. This medciine attacks the disease at its source, and REMOVING THE CAUSE, ren ders the cure CERTAIN and PERMANENT. The Electuary contains mineral medicine, no Al oes, Coeocynth, Gamboge, or other powerful and ir ritating purgative. No fear of taking cold while unl der it* influence ; no change in diet necessary.
