WASHINGTON CITY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 83, IM4I. IN THOSE THINUS WHICH il( cuintiil lit thei BK UNIT*? IN NON-CSaBNTIALS, LIBERTY J AND IN ALL things cmamity,?Aufustin, John R. Clnninuham, of Brownsville, Pa. w appointed Wavellinjj agent of the Madiaonian. The President left the Seat of Government on Thursday morning, by the way of Baltimore and the ('hesapeake, on a brief visit to his resi dence in Williamsburg, Virginia. Laborious and ^harassing as have been the duties of his office for the last seven months, rendering a relaxation both agreeable and neces sary, he left the city apparently in the enjoy ment of better health than when he arrived here in April last. NAVAL APPOINTMENTS. We are requested to give notice that all the appointments of Midshipmen, required by the present wants of the Naval service, have been made, and that a list of them will shortly be published. The Commission whicli for some months past lias been engaged in investigating the affairs of the New York custom house, has returned to New York, with a view, we understand, of re suming the investigation. Mr. William A. Bkadlky, of this city, has been appointed a member of the Boatd in place of Mr. Kelley, who has returned to Ohio. It is expected that the examination will be closed in time to report on or before the opening of the next session of Congress. MR. WEBSTER AND HIS POSITION. The disappointed editor of the Courier and Enquirer is reading lessons of political morali'.y aud consistency to Mr. Webster. A few words will put this matter right before the public. The late Cabinet were appointed by Gen. Harrison. President Tyler found them in of fice. The relation between the President and the Cabinet should be confidential. The mem bers should not only harmonize with him, but with each other. It is not to be expected that seven intelligent and independent minds shall perfectly agree in all thing*, or that their judg ments or opinions should concur on every ques tion which may be presented in the administra tion of public affairs, but the members of the Cabinet should have a community of feeling, and a mutual confidence resulting therefrom. When Mr. Tyler came into office, the first question was whether he should retain the old Cabinet. If we turn to the statements made by Messrs. Ewing and Bell, it will be found that he explained to them fully, his position in rela tion to a Bank of the United States. He told his Cabinet that he did not believe that Con gress had the power to create a corporation in the States, and that thus believing, he never ?would sanction any bill asserting that power.? Hence Mr. Ewing's bill provided that the Bank should be located in the District of Columbia, and required the consent of the States for the creation of branches. This was so fully under stood, that Mr. Ewing himself says that his bill was modified so as to meet the President's con stitutional opinions; and he further says, that the President could not have signed the first bill be cause it was, in his opinion, a violation of the Constitution. If we turn to Mr. Bell's statement, we find that in the conversation of the 18th, Mr. Ew ing, Mr. Badger, Mr. Webster, and himself pledged themselves that they would exert their influence, not only to get up such a bill as he could consistently sign?that is, a bill which should conform to the President's constitutional opinions?but that they would exert their influ ence to prevent the passage of any bill which the President might suppose, would be after Avards amended and made the basis of such an institution as the late Bank of the United States. Now what was the conduct of Messrs. Ew ing, Badger, and Bell? When the bill was prepared, and the President called upon his Ca binet to fulfil their pledge, a nd if possible post pone it until the next session, did these gentle men fulfil.that pledge? So far from it, they met Mr. Clay, they acted with Mr. Clay's cau cus, and united with the Piesident's enemies in theatteinptto dictate toand disgrace him. On the contrary, Mr. Webster acted in good faith. He ad visedjthe Senators from Massachusetts to post pone the bill, and exerted his influence, as he had promised he would use it. to protect the Pre sident against the attempt to force him to vio late the Constitution. . Such was the part acted by Mr. Webster in that emergency, and the part thus acted at that time is fully appreciated by the President and Mr. Webster's present colleagues. The ru mors about Mr. Webster's leaving the Cabinet are gotten up by those who desire it, because they believe that by doing so he will be compell ed to throw his influence, and that of his power ful friends, into Mr. Clay's scale. They would create jealousies between Mr. Webster and the other members of the Cabinet, that they may thereby provoke him to resign. They know that Mr. Clay and his partisans have it in their power to defeat any scheme for a bank which the President can approve, and they thus fore see that Mr. Webster's hopes and wishes, in thin particular, may be defeated, and would place him in a position to compel him to resign. Mr. Webster's past course is an earnest of what he will do, under such circumstances. lie dif lers with the President on the powers of Con gress over this subject. He will therefore do what he can, consistently, to obtain a Hank, but when he shall find, as he probably will find, that I he course of M r. (May and his partisans have made II impossible to obtain a charter, then he will doubtless do what he can consistently doto favor such legislation as will best promote thegreat ends which he desires to obtain through the agency of a Hank. The labors of the malcontents will be vain?the efforts to excite jealousies will be defeated?the Cabinet and the President will act together, and in harmony. '1 v Vishville papers are warmly discussing the question, " Who shall represent Tennessee i.. the United States Senate?'' Two Senators are to be chosen by the Legislature now in ses sion. DHAYH OF MR. POHSYTH. We regret to announce thedeutli of the Hou. John Fohuyth, late Secretary of State of the United State*. He eipired at his residence in this city on Thursday evening, after a short ill ness from congestive fever. Mr. Forsyth was hoin at Fredericksburg, Va., in October, 1781. lie graduated at Princeton College in 1799. He entered the practice of law at Augusta, Georgia,in 1802. Soon after he was appointed Attorney General of the Stale, and rapidly rose to distinction. In 1812 he was elected a Representative in Congress. From 1814 to 1818 he was chairman of the Committee of foreign A Hairs, in which position he sus tained Mr. Madiaou and the war with Great Bri tain. In 1818 he was elected a member of the U. S. Senate, where he took his seat in Novem ber of that year. In 1819 he was appointed Min ister to Spain, where he became involved in the controversy in relation to our treaty with that country, settling differences, ceding the Flori das, dee., which lasted until October, 1820. With the exception of a brief visit to the United States, hecontinuedat Madrid until 1823,when he returned to this country, and having in the mean time been re-elected to Congress, he resumed his seat in the House of Representatives in De cember of that year, and was restored to the chairmanship of the Committee of Foreign Af fairs, which he continued to occupy as long as he remained in that body. In Oct. 1827, he was elected Governor of Georgia. After filling thatpost two years, he leturnedtoWashington as Senator of the U. S. in place of Mr. Berrien ; that post he filled from 1829 until the summer of 1834, when, on the resignation of Mr. McLane as Secretary of State, Mr. Forsyth was called to that Department by President Jackson. That office he filled during the residue of Gen. Jack son's term, and continued to hold it until the close of Mr. Van Buren's administration, when he was succeeded in office by Mr. Webster.? Mr. Forsyth haa continued to reside in this city during the past summer, and had reached the age of 61 years. THE BANK WOT THE dtTEflTION. A friend has been kind enough to forward to us a copy of the " Tippecanoe Text Book," with a letter. From the latter we make the fol lowing extract: " The 1 Bank (juration' wan not the queetion in volved in the contest. This ia sufficiently apparent from an examination of the newspapers. Much though they abound with articles about the ' currency,' sel dom or ever have they dared to connect it openly with a Bank of the United States. And there is one point thst you have entirely ovt-rlooked?that not a single biographer, Tyson, Jackson, Todd, Gushing, Mont gomery, or the compiler of the Text Book, ventured to commit General Ilariivon on that question, [and if he ever committed himself, it was on the uther side ] " Further, the ' Text Book1 was hailed as the true exponent of the principles of General Harrison and the Whig., and as auch was endorsed by the Con gressional Central Committee at Washington, and al most every State Committee in the Union. It waa in fact termed the " Vade mecum of our friendi every where." But there is not one word in it which com mits General tlarrison in favor of a Bank. 1 send you herewith a copy, as evidence ot' this, and 1 am de sired to say that you cannot offer a more triumphant vindication of Mr. Tyler than it furnishes, or one which will be more readily and universally acknow ledged." THE SYRACUSE DECLARATION AND THE WHIG PARTY. We have already had occasion to advert to some of the erroneous conclusions of the De claration of the Syracuse Convention, and we now resume the subject. The Declaration assumes, that "the whole Whig party, the President included, stood pledged to the country, by the most sacred obli gations," in favor of u Bank. This is not true in any essential particular. So far from the President being so pledged, his whole public ca reer afforded a pledge to the contrary. That the Whig party was not thus pledged, is evident, from the whole tenor of the electioneering cam paign. In some States, the Bank was openly re pudiated, and in others, it was studiously kept out of sight. The Bank was in fact an issue, from which, the Whig party shrunk, because the more Intelligent of the party knew, perfectly well, that there was no prospect of success with a Bank for the watch-word. How unjust then was it, for the Convention, to declare, in so lemn form, that the President was pledged to such a measure. The manner in which theConvention assumed to talk to the President, is worthy of the imitn tion of a country pedagogue to a wayward tru ant, or of a judge in admonishing a condemned criminal about to receive sentence. They trust he will " faithfully improve the present oppor tunity" for reflection, and "finding out his error, will correct it." They "have a right to hope and expect, that the President will look again, and with more care, an<l better judgment and conclusions, into the important subject in which he and Congress have differed." "The public money now in his hands, must be taken out," Jcc. This is in the true pedagogue vein, and surely the President ought to be very grateful, for so much gratuitous advice bestowed on one who has violated so many pledges. They "lament and marvel, that he could not repose confidence in those who had enjoyed the special confidence of the elected President, and who possessed the unbounded confidence of the whole family of the Whigs." It mny he, that the old Cabinet possessed the confidence of Gen. Harrison: but if he had discovered that they were leagued with his personal and political op ponents, knowing him as we did, we doubt whether he would have allowed them to hold their places a day after such discovery. Dis guise it as we may, it is essential to the succcss of any Governmentf that perfect harmony and entire confidence should prevail between the head and subordinates of the Administration. That this mutual confidence did not exist, is evi dent from the disclosures of the retiring Secre taries, and that being the case, the sooner the connection was dissolved the better for both parties, and for the country at large. The Convention congratulate themselves, on an alleged avowal heretofore made by the I'resi dent, in regard to the one term principle, that in his time, 11 the country will not be cursed with the revolting spectacle of an administration con ducted through one tntire term, chiefly with the view of securing the succession to the incum bent. In juxta position wuh this expression, they significantly introduce the name of Henry City, at the ftituro hope of the country. It ts impossible lo mistake the allusion, or its design: the object is an informal nomination of Mr. Clay. Now we are not disposed to deny the right of the Convention, lo place any candidate before the People, at this early period. But we doubt the expediency of the maiusuvre, aud we deny their right to disfranchise any other individual. Nor is there any reason why Mr. Tyler should not, at a proper lime, submit his administration, on its own merits, to the approval or disapproval of the country. He has no desire for au early agitation of the couutry, by a scramble for the succession, and thus far, we have not teen ''the revolting spectacle" deprecated by the Conven tion. The letter to the late acting Postmaster General is an emphatic declaration of President Tyler on this score. It would have been well, if the Convention had declared its abhorrence of Dictatorships in Congress, organized for the ag grandizement of an individual. This would at least have exhibited a commendable degree of impartiality. But we hear no complaint of this "revolting spectacle." As for their attempting to draw invidious distinctions, at this time, in tended to prejudice a Whig President, it is out of place, in a Whig Convention. Like the in discreet Manifesto of the forty Whig members of Congress, the Declaration of the Syracuse Convention was injudicious and if the effect tend to defeat the Whig party in New York, the responsibility must rest with those who put it forth. The truth is, the nation wants tranquillity, and the Whig party has a right to demand repose, after the turmoils of the past year. But the politicians, ever restless, appear anxious to plunge into another Presidential campaign, three years before the election. For lack of argument, they assail the President,?distort his senti ments,?misrepresent his actions,?impugn his motives, and cavil at every thing he does. One charges him with imbecility,?another with ob stinacy : one says, that he vetoed the Bank for popularity,?another says the Bank itself is pop ular: some pretend that his Cabinet abandoned him,?others find fault because lie turned them out: the partisans of Mr. Clay aver that he courts the popular favor,?Mr. Clay himself de clares that he resisted the will of the People.? In short, the accusations against him are so in consistent, and so utterly incompatible, as to re fute themselves, and show that they are manu factured for sheer political effect. Meanwhile, the People want repose, are anxious to give the new President a fair oppor tunity to act for himself, and to judge his ad ministration by its own merits. They believe him to be honest, capable, and faithful to the Constitution. In particular, the Whig party are desirous of seeing the country rally around the \\ hig President. As for casting him off, because he differed in opinion with a majority in Congress, in the details of a Fiscal Agent, it would be suicidal to the party as such, and prejudicial to the nation at large. Reckless par tisans?the crcatures of faction?may fret and rage to their hearts content, but the honest por tion of the People can have no sympathy with them. Thus far, John Tyler, though coming suddenly into power, and assuming the most responsible office in the world,?though sur rounded with difficulties from the outset,?thus far he has sustained himself like a man and a statesman. His first Cabinet, though selected by another, received his generous confidence, and it may be presumed, that he would have preferred to travel on with them, in harmony, to the end of his official duties, but when they undertook to interfere with his constitutional duties, and to question his right to judge for himself in regard to a bill presented for his sig nature.?self-respect, as well as a regard for the dignity of the office, rendered it necessary for him to have a frank understanding with his Ca binet, and if they could not cordially sustain him and his measuies, to seek those who could.? This was the head and front of his offending.? The old Cabinet resigned, and he appointed a new one, which is not only equal in character and talent to the old one, but, as a body, has not been surpassed by any Cabinet since the foun dation ol the Government. With such a Cabi net, and John Tyler at the head, the destinies of the nation are in safe hands. By the time they have been in office, a twelvemonth, and become familiar with their duties, they will prove as efficient as any of their illustrious pre decessors, from the days of Washington. Away then with the foul attempts of faction, to put down an administration in advance for the sake of aggrandizing an ambitious successor on its ruins. Tue Statukof Washington was on Thurs day removed from the Navy Yard, and is now at the top of the Capitol Hill. It was brought from the Navy Yard to Maryland avenue through the canal, and thence on moveable ways, by means of capstans, teacles, &c. The removal of the statue is under the direction of Mr. William Easby. It is to be raised to the Hoor of the eastern portico, at its southern end, and will, we understand, be easily admitted to the rotundo without removing any other part of the Capitol but the casement of the eastern door. The sta tue is now enclosed in planks, and weighs, it is said, near twenty tons. The Ohio Slate Journal, and the Cincinnati Ga zette, |iut themselves to an unnecessary trouble about a communication published in thin paper, some wrrks ago, in relation to a "Fiscal Agent."' If they can lind no better cause of complaint again*! the Presi dent than the communications published by a free press, their ammunition must need replenis'iing. We are not aware that Mr. Tyler has even read the arti cles which have caused so much heat in certain quar tern. We have published a variety of fiscal projects, and we do not believe that he is the lather of them all, nor do we know that he approve* of any of them in the slightest degree. The Globe intimates that we have '' insulted" our " Whig friends." Whether they or we were first or have been most " insulting." is a question with which the Globe has no special claim to meddle.

East Florida, Oct. 13, 1841. There ha? nothing very important transpired of late in the way of Indian news. It is, however, somewhat gratifying to be able to state, that on the 11th, upward* of two hundred Indians were put on board the Trans port for New Orleans. Coa-coo-chee is among the number. Between fifty and an hundred still remain at Tampa. Mr. Hambaugh, the sutler to the 6th Infantry, died very suddenly, a few days ago, at Cedar Creek. Florida, Oct. 13, 1841. A party of nbout 250 Indians sailed on this date from Tampa Bay to New Orleans, in charge of Capt. Seawell, of ihe 7th Infantry, and Major Capers, the Emigrating Agent.

The Urogan Ca$e.?The following resolution was introduced into the lower House of the Vermont Le gislature, on Thursday .and laid upon the table: Whereas a violent infringement has been made on the right and sovereignty of this State, by a foreign power, exercising dominion in the neighboring pro vince of Canada, by the seizure and unlawful impri-' sonment of one of its citizcna; with a view of institut ing immediate inquiry into the cause of such force and imprisonment? Hesolted, By the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring therein, that a coninoiitee of members of the House, and members of the Se nate be appointed, whose duty it shall be to inquire into the late violent procedure of the British authori ties in the province of Canada, in forcibly seizing within this State, and conveying beyond the jurisdic tion of the same, and of the United States, Col. James W.Grognn, an American citizen, depriving him of personal liberty, and incarcerating him in a dungeon at Montreal; and that said committee be authorized to send for any person or pnpers which may aid them in their investigation, and thst they make report of their doings as soon as possible. It was called up on Friday, and after (Unking out the title of "Colonel," and fixing on three as the com mittee on the part of the House, the reaolution was passed. On Saturday it was again called up, a mo tion to reconsider the vote having been earned, and after some debate, again laid on the table. A substi tute was then offered, calling upon the Governor for the facts in his possession respecting the abductioh ot Qrogan, which was adopted with but one dissenting voice.

Often a* I have admired and been aatomahed at the fast accumula tiona of painting and aculpture, and oilier curious sp cimen* of art, at and in the environ* of Pari* ; and thta baa been often indeed, I [have not admired ao uiuch the txctlltnct?I have not been to much anion iahed at the number and variety of the ?j>eciiiieu? of art which I have aeen, aa 1 have admired the perfec tion, and been aatoniahed at the number and the va riety of the objecta of (I wa* going to aay, animated nature) which 1 have aeen to-day at the Muat-e fiia toir Naturele. So perfectly ia the form, color, hair, fealhera, and akin of each and every apecira of animal preserved, that each, but fur want of motion, aecma alive. Even the perfect form aud lualre of the eye ia preserved. But not onlv are the varieties of animate, but alao of inanimate nature represented. In deed, there are apecuuena, 1 believe I may aay of a)| that walks or creep* on land, of all thut awiina in water, and of all that winga the air. All apecira of quadruped*, from the maatodon to the mole?every kind of bird, from the condor of the Andes and the pelican of the wilderneaaof Aaia, to the humming bird of America?all kind* of fiah, from the whale to the ahrimp, are here repreaented. Also the enormous *er penta of the Eastern world and Southern America, and the mon*trou* alligator* of the Nile. There are *pect mena of rock* from, 1 believe, every inountuin, every cave, and every inland explored by man, and alao of aome, I suppose, from the moon or other unknown ?ource. There are alio all varietie* of minerul forma tion*. Much have I heard of the fame of Cuvier, and much of other*, hi* great coadjutor*, but I wu not able to reah*e half their merit and greatnes* till I *aw the re *ult of their labora here. Jually have they been re nowned, and long may their fame aurvive them. 1 acknowledge myself their debtor greatly. 1 reverence them for the greatne** of their labora in a gr?al arid good, and I may *ay, holy cause; for who can look upon the varied work* of God thus collected, preserv ed, and arranged by the hand* of men, without ador ing their Maker. For myself, as I beheld these spe cimen* of naturv] I could not but think of nature's God ) and never, 1 may nay, bad I such a lively and happy conviction that God muit have been their au thor. Here he that studies anatomy, mineralogy, or nithology, &c. &c , must, it seems to ine, learn a first and most important lesson in divinity. On the evo of my departure from Paris, I left this great natural mu seum with regret, after a hasty survey, resolved again to visit it if 1 have opportunity. C. M. Acxeiiee, Aug. 5th, 1841. Yesterday, by a small steamer which runs up the Seine as far as Montreau, a distance of about forty seven miles, 1 left Paris for Switzerland. To-day 1 am at Auxeree, about 114 miles fiom Paris. This is the first of the old walled towns of the interior of France which has at all interested me,except, perhaps, Rouen. And even here, had I not found my way out of one of the gates this afternoon, I s. ould have seen nothing but a venerable old Gothic church worth ob serving. But without, and extending quite around the town, is a wide street, called, as all auch streets are in France, the Boulevard, or fortification. This, as others, U lined on either side with ancient trees, which form a beautiful arch over head. The Boulevard thus ?or the part lined with trees, for there is anoiher for carriages?forui* a delightful promenade. And the view 1 had from this, aa I walked the almost entire round, was most delightful. This is a part of France planted with the vine, which has now nearly attained its gTowth, and the clusters of grapes are forming ; and the landscape is thus mostly covered with a beautiful deep green, interspersed with here and there a field of wheat, rye, barley, or oats ripe to the harvest. The beauty of it is not marred by huge uncouth fences, nor by numerous roads, with waste land on either s;de ; all, excepting a few great routes or roads, lined mostly with trees, and here and there an orchard or small woodland-'-all is carefully and neatly cultivated. The country atound is also gently rolling, which adds an agreeable variety to the scene. Ai- I inhaled a pure and sweet air, and looked upon all this beauty and ev idence of plenty, 1 was ready to exclaim, pros(>erous and happy must be the people who posi-e.** such a coun try, when 1 heard the shrill voices of uwiy officers giv ing the usual orders at the daily drill ol troops on ? neighboring campus. The military, the unlitury, it is every where in France ; in every town it is argus eyed, and meets you at every turn. It would not mas ter so much, and yet it is loathsome to the Might of an American, if it had not to be supported ?if it hUiiport ed itself; but it is a host of mere consumers, produ cing absolutely nothing?a body of men, helpless, for they know nothing?useless, for th< y can do nothing , poor dependants on Government, sapping the pros perity of the people. To throw up and throw down, and stack arms, and walk in file, seems to me a poor employment for a rational man. But 1 i-hull be told useful they not only are, but necessary ; well, be it so; but then it is evidence that something is wrong ; that there is " something rotten in Denmark." Well, I would say that, had 1 not met the military this evening, I should have had a most delightful walk and pleasing reflections, and different impressions in respect of the happineax and prospeiity of the French peuple. And with this I must close this short letter, for il ii now dark, and to-morrow, early, t move again toward* Switaerland. > C.N. At a large Whig meeting in Philadelphia la?t week, it was resolved, that it is highly expedient for the Le gislature of that State to ini|>ose sufficient taxation to meet the public liabilities, instead of making any fur ther loans ; and that the Banks be compelled, irithout further delay, to resume and maintain sjiecie payments, ?r go into immediate liquidation. The Little Hock (Ark.) Gazette of the '29th ult contains the following paragraph, whirh it snys is founded on information derived from a letter written by Mr. R. A. Calloway, sub-agent of the Osage Indians : " The Camanehe Indians, it is l>elieved, ate con templating an attack upon the frontiers of Texas so ? -?on as the leaves full from the trees. They hnvu made prupositions to the Osages to join them with four hundred warriors, which the Osages have lefun ed. They have also sent the pi|ie to all of the neigh boring tribes." We are sorrv to learn, says the Oxford Mercury, that the Hon Kenneth Kayner lies dangerously ill at the residence of Dr. Hawkins, in Warren, North Ca rotina.
