Coagrcu To-Day.
Senate.?A largo number of executive docu
ments were laid before the Senate, and ordered
to be printed.
Mr. Clemens guve notice of a joint resolu
tion conferring tho brevet rank of lieutenant
general on Major General Scott.
Mr. Fish gave notice of a bill for a branch
miut in New York; and Mr. Gwin introduced a
bill for one in California.
Mr. Footk introduced bis joint resolution of
sympathy for the Irish exiled patriots.
Also his resolution declariug the Compro
mise measures a definitive settlement of the
Bluvery question; wbich was made the special
order for Monday next.
Mr. Hale offered a resolution inquiring
whether there had been any violations of the
law abolishing flogging iu the navy.
Mr. Footjk, in consequence of the unexpected
opposition, and tho want of time for tho House
to act on it, uskod leave to withdraw the Kos
?uth reception resolution; nud the leave was
granted. Mr. Seward gave notice of a similar
resolution; and theu the Senate adjourned.
House of Representatives.?This, body
standi adjourned until Saturday.
Proceedings or Conuress.?The Intelligencer
this morning gives a report of a column and a
third, the Republic two and a fifth, and the
Union quotes and adopts our clear and concise
report, given yesterday afternoon half an hour
after tho adjournment. This latter is, in our
opinion, quite ample enough for any journal
that is not an authorized and compensated re
porter of proceedings and debates.
The Pooa.?"Please, Mr. Telegraph, "?(thus
writes a fair and charitable correspondent)
" say a word to the dear public to prepare them
for the Fair of the Ladies' Union Benevolent So
ciety, commencing on Monday next, December 8,
at Odd-Fellows' Hall. Just tell them, in your
felicitous way, what real benefit they will con
fer upon the suffering poor, while, at tho same
time, the beautiful articles to be found there
will suit the taste and please tho eye of the
' dear ones' who expect to be remembered at
Christmas times. If it be a greater pleasure i
'to gtvo than to receive,'surely the poor, at
this season, should be remembered by those
whose homes are exdmpt from the ills of pov
erty. The 'Benevolent Society' is too well
known to say more than this : it assists the
poor and destitute of all denominations, whose
claims are poverty and suffering." We cannot
strengthen this appeal, and will not mar it by a
The Difference.?The National Intelligencer J
quotes the rumor^ that has reached us from
California, to the effect that three vessels had
departed from San Francisco for the Sandwich
Islands, for the purpose of ? taking possession
of them either by suasion or force." The In
telligencer remarks ironically that'"it is of some
consequence as showing the progressive spirit
of our people in California." When, however,
a ferocious and vindictive regal tyrant of tho
Old World destroys the lives <Tf thousands of
the people of either a neighboring or distant
nation, destroys its nationality, and subdues,
conquers and humbles?not annexes it as a
constituent part of itself?the Intelligencer al
ways thinks with Mr. Toots that it is "of no
consequence !"
Interesting Lectures.?The Harrisburg
Union says that Lieut. G. W. May, late of the
Lnited States Army, has been delivering, in
that city, a series of brilliant and highly inter
esting lectures, descriptive of the "battles of1
Mexico, and the manners and customs of the
people of that interesting country. These lec-!
tures were attended by large audiences, who were
greatly delighted, and at their close a highly
complimentary resolution was moved and unan
imously adopted. "We are free to admit,",
?ays the Lmon, " that these were the most in
teresting lectures we ever listened to, and trust
that the distinguished lecturer may be liberally
encouraged wherever he may go." We hope
?o too. Instruction by lectures may be made I
*ery interesting and profitable; and many an
educated gentleman, not knowing what else to
do, may turn his talents to account in this wise.
Why are not lecturers induced to appear fre
quently in our public halls ?
A Valuable Invention.?A correspondent
of the North Bridgewater Gazette describes an
experiment tried on the Boston and Providence
railroad track, for the purpose of ascertaining
if letters can be sent to a distance by means of
atmospheric pressure. To test the practica
bility of the theory, thero was laid for about j
one mile a pipe, through which the paper or ;
papers were to pass. 1 am told that those who
have experimented are of opinion that commu- j
nication can be given in this manner from Bos
ton to New York in four minutes, and that they
we quite sure of success. j
The Atfaib or thb""prometiibus.?The Re '
public Of this morning says: "We are grati- I
fled to announce that, immediately on the re
ceipt of the intelligence of the firing on this
vessel by the British brig-of-war Express, a
competent naval force was, by the President's
direction, ordered to repair to, San Juan de Ni
caragua, to protect American vessels from like
outrages for the future, and inquiries were ad
dressed to the British government to ascertain
whether the conduct of the commander of the
Expresa was prompted by orders from his gov
School-Houses?With the reoent deplorable
calamity fresh upon oar minds, the matter of
improving school-houses should be taken into
?am eat consideration. In New York, on Mon
day evening, one of the ward school-houses was
disoovered to be on fire. There were nearly
fix ht.mdrrd children and other persons in the
building at the time, but through the presence
of mi nd and firmness of those who had charge
of the m, they were dismissed without the slight
est injury to any one. Unfortunately, however,
pri nce of mind and firmness are not always
present on such occasions.

Senator from Florida.?The grounds of
the contest between Messrs. Vulee and Mallory
appear to be little understood. They are rep
reseuted to be various. Mr. Yulee, according
to a statement before us, contends that blank
votes in a legislature ought to be counted to
form a quorum, at least for the election of
officers. The legislature consisted of fifty-nine
members, and on the ballot upon which Mr.
Vulee contends he was elected, twenty-nine
votes were cast for him, and the same number of
blank votes were cast. Ou the next ballot, or
upon tho same day before adjournment, Mr.
Mallory received oO votes against 28 for other
persous, and was declared elected. In his printed
meuioriul, Mr. Yulee states that by the general
parliamentary law and the practice of such bo
dies on very momentous occasions, blank votes
may be counted to make a quorum. He cites
many instances in State legislation where such
has been the practice, and says that in the first
election of Jefferson the contest between him
and Aaron Burr was decided by the four friends
of the latter in the Maryland delegation throw
ing blank votes for him, and the same num
ber, composing half of the votes of the State,
throwing half their votes for Jefferson. The
voice of the State was in this way considered
to have been declared for him, and that turning
tho long-poised balance in his favor, he was
chosen President of the United States.
Shall Sixth Street he Cut in Twain??
A correspondent complains of the interruption
of tbis street by closing in the public grounds
south of the cnnal. He protests against this
measure ns impolitic and illegal, and adduces
many authorities in support of his views. We
may soon find space for'his communication;
but would, in the mean time, suggest to our
able and attentive Commissioner of Public
Buildings the propriety of giving serious con
sideration to the subject. Our correspondent
assures us that many property-holders north
and south of the canal, and other citizens, are
determined to oppose the plan of obstructing
this highway. They do not believe that the
public promenades can be benefitted by such an
arrangement, but would not, in any event,
sacrifice utility for such a purpose. They con
tend that Sixth street should be open through
[ out its whole length, aud that a good iron
bridge shouAl be at once placed over the canal
to afford the requisito thoroughfare to the pub

Sonny Matthews and Sam. Cooper, charged

Polodoro Campbell, charged with rioting, was

A Humank Order.?An eminent merchant
of Boston, the Alia* states, in his instructions
to the captains of his vessels, requires that a
man shall bo sent aloft every morning at day
light, and every evening before sunset, to scan
the horizon, to see if any vessels are in the vi
cinity requiring assistance. The Courier, ap
proving of the order, suggests further, that
every time the helm is relieved the man re
lieved should be sent aloft, and his report en
tered as regularly into the log-book as the
ship's progress. The reports of many vessels
in distress show that they have frequently been
passed by vessels which took no notice of them;
and, were a regular system of lookouts intro
duced into all our ships, it would be the means
of saving many lives and much valuable prop
The Last!?Not of the Wampanoags, but of
the Yankee jesters. Ilill is no more?Ilackett
seems to have passed away?and Valentine
alone remains to tell the tale! But well he tells
it. Yalentine has exhausted the cachinatory
powers of tho metropolis! * Everybody holds
his sides and declares Valentine has played the
deuce with him! He is a great Yalentine, and
will long be remembered by young and old in
this community. He is a host in himself?and
a queer, comical crowd is that host. Well, good
bye, old fellow! The latch will be out when you
come again.
The Treason Trials.?We learn that a num
ber of witnesses were examined yesterday, but
their testimony was unimportant. The defence
was expected to close this morning. It is
thought that the defendant will be acquitted, as
the defence shows that he was only a spectator.
The United States will call up rebutting testi
mony, when Mr. Stevens will close for the de
The Contest in Mississippi.?The Florida Re
publican, in remarking that Mr. Foote's majority
is set down at about 1,500, says that tbis is a
great falling off from 20,000, as first reported,
but very fair considering his opponent strove to
outshine him in being a "good Union man."
Mr. Davis must have been his own slanderer if
he ever avowed himself a disunion man. He
will fight at any time, not only for the Union as
it is, but for its extension also.
Capt. Buck, or the Post Office Depart
ment.?We some time since described the
wreck of the Baltimore schooner Tybte, on her
way to Savannah, and the trials of the passen
gers, officers and crew. The Jacksonville (Fa.)
Republican, of the 27th ult., verifies our ac
count, in a narrative communicated to the edi
tor by Captain Buck himself, and concludes by
saying: " We are happy to find Captain Buck
and family in snfety at the point of their origi
nal destination; bat regret that Capt. B., who
is in delicate health, experienced much physi
cal suffering from the misfortune of which he
was one of the sharers."
Children's Nurses.?Few can be found
worthy to perform a mother's duty, and the
children of the wealthy as well as the poor are
often mads to suffer fearfnl penalties for the
indifference of their parents in selecting nurses.
The Lancaster (Pa.) Whig states that an infant
child of Mr. W. If. Miller recently died in that
place in consequence of having been forced to
swallow pins and needles by its nurse, a girl of
fourteen years of age. The girl oonfessed the
horrible crime, and stated her object to have
been to render the child fretful, so that she

Prom Mexico.
Nkw O&lbaks, December ii.?Advices have
been received from the city of Mexico to the
15th ult. The news of the abandonment of the
siege of Matainoros by (Jarvajal had occasioned
great rejoicing.
If by various indications it has been
made known that the Administration has been
indisposed to hcroise Kossuth, it docs not ne
cessarily follow that Mr. Webster participates
in their feelings. Mr. Foote's resolution has
been withdrawn. We are sorry for this; but
perhaps it is well enough to know whose thun
der we are dealing in before we launch it forth.
But never mind: Congressional resolutions are
not altogether essential. The nation has re
solved, and Kossuth will encounter a glorious
rcoeption. _____

our columns to see what everybody else has for

or their goods, wares, and merchandise, in the

A Serenade.?Last night, after the adjourn
ment of the Jackson Democratic Association,
tho members of that body, (numbering about
two hundred,) accompanied by the celebrated
Infantry Band, under the direction of Mr. Mar
soletti, proceeded to pay their respects to the
Hon. Linn Boyd, Speaker of the House of Rep
resentatives, at the Potomac House. After the
Band had executed two or three beautiful airs,
the honorable gentleman made his appearance,
and welcomed the party in a very neat and ap
propriate speech, concluding by cordially in
viting them to "come in." On entering the
large dining hall, the company were greeted
with a profusion of good things; and, after
having partaken of them, the "flow of soul
commenced. Mk. F. McNerhany proposed a ,
glowing sentiment in compliment to the noble
hearted Kentuckian, who made an excellent j
speech in response. Capt. Robinson also made
a speech; and Mr. J. D. Hoover, president of
the Association, was called out by a complimen
tary seutiment offered by Mr. McNerhany, and
made a handsome acknowledgment. The lol
lowing toast by Mr. J. F. Ennis was^nthusias- -
tically received: "The Hon. Linn Boyd: The
record of his Congressional career is his proud- (
est monument, and the profusion of his table
evidences the liberality of his heart." Having
spent a truly delightful hour at the " Potomac,"
tho company proceeded to the house of Mr. ^
McKnew, who did not appear on account of in- l
disposition, and thence visited (stopping on :
their way at the Union office) the residences ol
Mr. J. D. Hoover and Mr. F. McNerhany, by
both of whom they were hospitably entertained.

Mkssagk or the Governor of Texas.?This i
document, dated November 10, is very long and ^
ably written. Its most important part relates ^
to the bonds of the State. Tha following ex- s
tract will serve to reveal the views and policy <?
of Governor Bell:
"The republic of Texas having executed her
bonds and other evidences of debt in an exceed- r
ingly dark and gloomy period of her history, it t
became necessary to issue them for nominal ,
amounts, tearing no sort of proportion to the e
amounts actually received, and to pledge her i
resources, arising mainly at that time from her
revenues, for their redemption. These securi- ,
ties, generally speaking, were concentrated at ,
very low rates in the hands of moneyed specu- ,
lators, who had contributed nothing to the t
achievement of her independence, or to the re- t
lief of her actual necessities in the administra- t
tion of the government at the time they were t i
issued. 1
"This consideration, well understood and
appreciated, induced an inquiry in respect to
the mode of redeeming these securities; as no
one could entertain the opinion for a moment,
that the Government was under any obligation,
either in justice or morality, to redeem them by
paying the amount expressed on their face;
and that inquiry resulted in the passage of
the act of the State Legislature of March
20th, 1848, 'to provide for ascertaining the
debt of the late republio of Texas,' which
act required tho Auditor and Comptroller of
the State to reduce all claims presented for
liquidation to the actual par value which was
realized by the republic, at the time of their
issue. The evident meaning and contempla
1 tion of that act was, that the holders of the
claims should be paid in accordance with the
amount thus ascertained by the Auditorial
Board, subject to the revision of the Legisla
I ture ; and the amount so ascertained was con
sidered as all that was actually due from the
State to her several creditors."
Probablk Imfanticidb.?A new-born white
infant was found yesterday at the foot of Col
lege Hill, between 14th and 15th streets, by a
couple of boys and a colored man. It was com
j pletely sewed up in cloths of various kinds. An
inquest will be held this afternoon.

riMUS INVALUABLE CANDY has the extraordinary
X property of immediately relieving enughi, c<>Uir,
hixirsenfl, difficulty r\f brushing, ItronchUit, (uthmn, and
AiuA-in** of the throat. It operates by dissolving the con
gealed phlegm, consequently caning a free expectoration.
Those who are troubled with that unpleasant tickling
in the throat, which deprive* them of rest night after
night, by the Incessant oongli which it provokes, will, by
using this Candy, find Immediate relief.
The subscriber, in presenting this Candy to public no
tice, wishes to be expressly understood that he does not
claim Ibr it anv mimeuloui curing properties, nor does he
present it with a long string of certificates of recommen
dation, as he considers these altogether needles*.
Thi* Candy Is composed of six simp/r inffrntitnU, prin
ciprilly nf hr.rb*, which are known to be very efficacious in
the cure of diseases resulting from colds, and some of
which, being rather nauseous In their natural state,
would deter many from resorting to them; but, when
made into a candy, become palatable, without losing any
of their valuable properties.
It ha* been prepared at the suggestion q/" rm* 0/ our
most rmivmt physicians, and ha* been used by many of
his and my personal friends with signal success, and at
whoae earnest solicitation I have been Induced to enter
largely into its manufacture, assured by him and them
that when generally known and tried it will supersede all
the various cough candles and mixtures now in use.
As for myself, I ain confident, from the Ingredient* of
which It I* composed, that, should it not effect an entire
cure, It can do no injury even to the most drticate in
health, and therefore have no healtanoy In Introducing it
to the citiien* of Washington and vicinity.
Directions for use: Use one stick per day?in th*
morning before breakfast, in the middle of the day, and at
night on going to bed. Price 12U cents.

Groat Medical Discovery!
TKM.?I first discovered this preparation in 1840,
since which time I have found but little difficulty in cu
ring most NERVOUS DISEASES, but very recently I
have added an ingredient which acts like maglo in ren
dering my NERVOUS CORDIAL far more certain in cu
ring Nervous Tremor of the Muscles, Shaking of the
Ueud, Palpitation, Flatulence, Heart-burn, Tic Dolor, or
Pain in the Face, with Twitching* of the Muscles or
Flenh, Wakefulness, Heart Diseases, Neuralgia, and for
the mind or body, affected by care, labor or study. This
truly wonderful Medicine, from its peculiar happy effect
in allaying the most violent Nervous affections, and com
pletely eradicating them from the system, may justly be
termed the grandest discovery in tho science of Medicine.
It subdues and averts all those NERVOUS DISEASES,
over which tho most profound medical skill has hitherto
hud no control. It Is a grand restorer in building up a
weak constitution, already worn down by disease and de
bilitated by other Medicine; its invigorating properties
act like a charm, and it* beneficial effect* are almost mi
raculous. The weak, the nervous, and those sufferiug
with constant pains and uneasiness, are frequently cured
by using a single bottle.
