Judga Berrien, of Georgia, on behalf of the committee appointed to inform Henry Clay of his nomination as the candidate for the Presiden cy, read to the convention Mr. Clay'H letter of acceptance. The Hon Daniei, Webster, of Massachusetts, now being loudly called for, came forward upon the stand an<J addressed the convention in his usual eloquent manner. Mr. WEBSTER'S SPEECH. We can only characterize this speech this morning, and to speak of it in u few words. It was a hearty and entire response to the nomina tion of Heny Clay. Daniel Webster spoke like a true Whig, and a good friend of Henry Clay. After Mr. Webster had concluded, T. Yates Walsh, Esq., rose, and, on behalf of the commit tee of two from each State in the Union, offered the following resolutions, which were unanimous ly adopted : Resolved., That this Convention have received with the most profound and grateful sensibility the tidings of the nomination of Henry Clay as the Whig candidate for the Presidency in the ap proaching election. That, recognising in this nomination but the expression of the universal and cherished wish of the Whig?, they hail it with the peculiar greeting due to him who is, above all other men, the man of the Union, the history of whose whole life is the announcement and expression of the genuine sentiment, princi pie, and purpose of the Whig party. Resolved, That this Convention have heard with the liveliest gratification the nomination of Theodore Frelinuhusen as the candidate for the Vice Presidency, f.ssured that in his fidelity to his country, in his undoubted attachment to the principles of the Whig party, in his eminent ser vice, approved ability, and moral purity, the Peo ple have the best security for the honest discharge of the duties of the station for which he has been selected. Resolved, That this Convention do therefore most cordially ratify and confirm the said nomina tions, and do pledge tnemselves and the Whig party to the vigorous support and futherance of the same, with all the zeal and by all the effort which may become good citizens striving in the cause of their country. Resolved, That this Convention re-affirm and proudly proclaim their adherence to the distinc tive Principles and Measures of the Whig party, now known of all men, and cherished by a large majority of the American People, as follows : 1. A Tariff which shall of itself provide suffi cient revenue to pay the debts and defray the expenditures of the Federal Government?such Tariff so adjusted as equally to protect, encou rage, and cherish in all its branches the Produc tive Industry of the Country. 2. A National Currency, which shall be of uniform par value in every part of the Union, and which may be transmitted from one section to any part of another without discount or depre ciation, and at the smallest possible cost?to be created by such means and instrumentalities as shall commend themselves to the wisdom of the next Whig Congress, counselled and aided, not obstructed and thwarted, by a genuine Whig President. 3. A fair and just distribution of the Proceeds of the Public Lands among the several States of the Union, to be by them devoted to purposes of general and permanunt utility, thereby protecting the common interest of all from aggression and spoliation, preventing unnecessary and pernicious fluctuations in the Tariff,and putting a stop to the discreditable spectacle of a free and enlightened Nation, year by year, devouring its substance and steadily diminishing the broad patrimony be queathed to it by the valor and sacrifices of an il lustrious ancestry, to supply the waste and want of its annual and ordinary expenditures. Resolved, That the practical restriction of the Veto power, which has grown by repeated en croachments into a mighty engine of Executive Despotism, the limitation of a President to a single term, the retrenchment of our national expendi tures by every practicable means ; the reform of the now glaring abuse and corruptions growing out of an unworthy bestowal of Executive patronage ; and the general reduction of burthens and in crease of benefits resulting to the people from the existence and operations of the federal govern ment, are objects for which the Whig party will unceasingly strive until their efforts are crowned with a signal and triumphant success. Gov. Metcalfe, of Kentucky, followed and spoke in his usual eloquence for the Whigs of Kentucky and the Union. The lion, Thomas Ewing, of Ohio, having been called on, was received with rapturous applause. He briefly vindicated himself for the part he had taken with respecttj Mr. Tyler's Administration, and 6poke warmly in favor of his old friends and associates?Henry Clay and Theodore Freling huysen. Then came Edward Stanly, of North Carolina, who expressed himself delighted with the scene before him, and with the glorious Whigs around him. He had been more than satisfied with the nominations, and North Carolina would stand by them. Mr. Webster made a second speech at another part of the stand, and was followed by Messrs. Bolts, Crittenden, Huntingdon, and Stewart. A resolution was adopted that the next Young Men's Convention should be held in the city of Philadelphia ; and after a few words from Mr. Boardman, of Connecticut, the Committee of Ra tification adjourned, sine die. " Who hath redness of Eyes."?This in terrogative " portion of divine scripture" is il lustrated by an anecdote, related with most ef fective dryness by a friend of ours. An elderly gentleman, accustomed to " indulge," entered the bar-room of an inn in the pleasant city of H , on the Hudson, where sat a grave Friend toasting his toes by llio fire. Lifting a pair of green spectacles upon his forehead, rubbing his inflamed eyes, and calling for a glass of brandy toddy, he seated himself by the grate ; and as he did so, he remarked to Uncle Broadbrim that his ?'eyes were getting weaker and weaker, and that even spectacles did'nt. seem to do 'cm any good." "'I'll tell thee, friend," replied the Quaker, "what I think. I think if thee was to xoear thy specta cles over thy mouth for a few months, thy eyes would get sound again." Mr. Ainos Bushrod, a Philadelphian, has a gold watch which was worn by General Washington, and a seal which bears that illustribus man's coat of arms. These were bequeathed to their pre sent owner's father by John A. Washington. The watch is described as very beautiful and intrinsi. cally valuable. ORIGINAL SONG.

FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1841. SENATE. The Senate remained in session long enough to receive and refer several memorials i'rom N. York and Michigan, against the annexation of Texan, and then adjourned until Mond.iy next. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Mr. J. It INGERSOLL gave notioe of his in tention to introduce bills ol the following titles, viz : A bill to prevent the public execution of crimi nals under the laws of the United States. A bill to confer jurisdiction in certain cases upon consuls of the United States, in controver sies between American citizens. A bill to facilitate the proof of marriage in cases of widows of officers and soldiers of the Revolution. A bill to abolish custom-house oaths. Mr..VANCE, from the Committee on Claims, reported, without amendment, several private bills from the Senate. The House then resolved itself into Commit tee of the Whole, Mr. HOPKINS in the Chair, and resumed the debate upon the " British" Ta riff bill. Mr. CHAPPELL, of Georgia, addressed the committee in a speech chiefly directed against the existing tariff; or rather the principles upon which it was established. Mr. SEVERANCE, of Maine, followed in a speech replete with sound practical good sense. After controverting some of the leading proposi tions laid down by the gentleman who preceded him, and contending that labor, not capital, was the subject of protection, Mr. S. went on to de tine his own position. Some gentlemen, he said, were for stopping at a eortof halfway-house, and contenting themselves with such protection as was derived, incidentally, in the process of rais ing revenue; but for himself, he maintained the direct principle of protection?constant, perma nent protection. Gentlemen might lay down what theories they would, the fact was that commerce and agriculture, and manufacture?, always had been protected, and always would be ; and so too of labor?the mechanic arts would be protected, and labor would be represented on this floor; he was himself a mechanic, a workingman, and knew what belonged to this class of the commu nity. Mr. S. then examined the bill before the House in detail, and insisted ,that the principles upon which it was established carried with them their own refutation, and would lead ultimately, if car ried out, to destruction of revenue as well as protection. If the bill were passed, he maintain ed that not one-half of the revenue would be raised under it necessary for the present demands of the Government; and not one-third the aver? age amount annually expended by Mr. Van Bu ren's administration. If this bill becomes a law, the maximum of duties, after one year had pass ed, would be 28 per cent., and Mr. S. said this was the very point where they stood in 1840, when the revenue had fallen oft'to such an alarm ing extent, that the Government was threatened with bankruptcy. Mr. MURPHY, of New York, made a labored defence of the bill before the committee. M. ROCKWELL, of Massachusetts, made his debut in a very sensible and eloquent speech a?ainst the bill. The debate was continued until the usual hour of adjournment. it.?To be sick is no longer a misfor tune, but a fault. Has any man a headache?

There is now here a large body of good workmen, who are unable to procure the means of subsistence by their labor, as printers, in any re spectable office; and the few rat offices?and we are happy to say they are few indeed?are filled by the cat-hating gentry, who always infest large cities.
