Washington Citv, Mxacii 1S33. Sir: The present Session of Congress closes this day, and although but lew lof the subjects introduced have been finally acted upon, 1 flatter myself ion men, nearly equal m iiunr.Uers,;e(j 0flicers and soldiers, and a law au- j vvere enable to pais laws to prevent Slates. Thus by an ordinance, and the legislation ol a bare majority of a single State, have these infatuated people disturbed the public peace and destroyed the confidence of a portion of their people in the Government of the L uitcd States, which protects their lives, their liberties, and their property. The South Carolina question was brought before Congress by an execu tive message iti January, and a bill was reported by the Judiciary com mittee which elicited able debates on both sides of the question, and finally became a law empowering the l'resi dent to enforce the collection t f the revenue. The debates on this qu?s-t tion have been published ; they should, as I have no doubt they will, be read with much interest, aid will fully ex plain this controversy. The above law was deemed necessary owing to the offensive attitude assumed by the majority of the State of South Caro lina; and it is believed that admonish ed by the prompt action of Crongress, the firm course pursue ! by the ''resi dent, atd the conciliatory temper of his mesfage at the opening of the Session, And his proclamation of the Uhh of December last, that tho State of South Carolina will return to her duty, aod yield obedience to the laws of the Union. The measures of the administratioi. relatian to the disturbance in the South, has met almost universal ap-' probation, except in the di-tritts nl-j wretches have became bands of rob ready excited beyond what i general- jbers. A public paper has lately been ly known or believed in the v est, and ihas had the most salutary effect in uni- ling men oi an panics under lite nan- - c it . t .i i t,er of the Union and the Constitution ; and it is no small gratification to the friends of the President to find patri ots and statesmen of all political par ties unite in sustaining him. I have no doubt this dangerous excitement of our southern brotbern will pass into obli vion without being the entire of shedd ingone drop of American blooJ. An act has also been passed to re duce and modify the Tariff. This measure was supported oy men of all parties with a hope of quieting the j inveterate, they doubtless continue to Southern Nullifyers. In agreeing tolttie present day: it the North and West yielded much! for peace and the permanency of our ' the province of Quang-tong and that institutions.and it will be gratifying to ofQuang-si depending en Yung chew every patriot should the expectation of fu, are Myautse still more uncivilized its friends be realized.

Ml i .in old Farmer" was received at too late an hour for this week's paper. The House of Delegates of the State of Virginia has passed a bill making an annual appropriation of jjlN,(M) for five years, to aid in the removal of free ar sons of color, from her commonwealth. We have received the first number of a paper published in New York, by Charles W. Denison, entitled the Eman cipator. Its object is to advocate the en tire and immediate emancipation of ai.i slaves. The Emancipator is printed with fair, small tvpe, on a super-royal sheet, at two dollars per annum. The first num ber which is oiFercd as a specimen, mav be seen at this office. From Mr. I).

The benevolent citizens of Philadelphia, Lave already col lected and expended upwards of ten thou sand dollars for the benefit of the suffering inhabitants of these islands, and have re cently kad another meeting to raise more funds for the same praise-worthy purpose. Their call has met with the liberality that has ever characterized an American pub lic. A letter has been received by the committee appointed by that meet infr .from the captain of the vessel which carried out the provisions, stating, the sufferings of the j inhabitants ol the island of t.
