Dr. Nott, President of Union College, died re- 1 cently, in the 93d year of his age. He "was one . of the most distinguished divines of the country. • Among his most successful pulpit efforts was a sermon on the death of Alexander Hamilton.— j In 1804 he was chosen president of Union Col- ' lege, which place he continued to fill for sixty two years, and h was at ids death the oldest head of ft Uternry institution in the United States, and probably in the World. More than 4,000 students have been graduated during his presi dency, and in their number inay be found some of the most eminent men in the country. Union College is emphatically of his own formation.— He came to it in its poverty and infancy, and raised it to wealth and reputation. In 18G4 the semi-centennial anniversary was celebrated, when between six and seven hundred of the men who had been graduated under him came together to do him honor. The address of the “Council of the Irish Re public,” dated at Dublin, is published. It says: “The work of preparation in Ireland is done. We know our strength j we are not grasping in the dark. A point has been reached from which wo can see the goal clearly. We call upon you to aid tho Irish Army of Independence, which will soon stand face to face with the enemy.— We ask a loan, which shall be paid within six months after the establishment of Irish indepen dence.” The address, which is quite lengthy, is endors ed by a card from Col. O’Mahony, urging prompt action by tho Fenian Brotherhood. Runaway.—Mr, David Norris’s horse, the other day, while standing in front of one of the hotels in this place, became frightened, broke his bitching rein, and ran down the street at a furious rate, and when near Mr. Hanna’s hotel, jumped a fence six rails high, with a sleigh, and j the leaglh of the leap being afterwards measured, j was found to be thirty feet. THE REGISTRY LAW. The State Convention, which met in Baltimore, to consider ibe repeal of the Registry Low, among other things passed the following resolutions, and appointed the following committees. We have no room for the whole proceedings of the Con vention, but these are the most important of all its doings and are, we think, sufficient ly rational and reasonable to meet the ap proval of every well meaning man in the State: THE RESOLUTIONS A8 ADOPTER. 1. Resolved by th is Convention, repre senting all the people of Maryland who r in favor of the restoration of political righta to the disfranchised citizens of the State, That the persistent efforts of the President of the United States to restore to their political rights (bo citizens of the Southern States, and to protect them in the enjoyment of their constitutional re lations to the Federal Government receive our cordial endorsement and we pledge to him our support in his efforts to re-estab lish tho rights of the States uuder the Federal Government upon a oi nstitu lional basis. 2. Resolved, That the President of this convention be directed to communi cate to tho President of tho United States a copy of tho proceedings of this conven tion, and to express to him their high ap preciation of his patriotic efforts to restore peace, good feeling and political equality between all sections of the country. B. Resolved, That we will, and all who are opposed to the odious laws of proscription and disqualification should be ’ determined and persistent in the effort to regain the freedom that is now most un justly and tyrannically withheld from the majority by tho minority of the citizens of the State, and that there should be no Cessation to the struggle to recover such freedom until equal liberty to all citizens of the State is made triumphant. 4. Resolved, That the Registration law of this State is odious aud oppressive in 1 its unjust and tyrannical in the . manner of its administration, the fruit- - ful source of dissension among tho people, . calculated to keep alive tho memory of ■ differences whijh ought to be forgotten, and that sound policy, enlightened states manship and positive justice demand its immediate repeal. * 5. Resolved, That the provisions of the fourth section of the first article of the * constitution, which proscribe conditions to the elective franchise before unknown L to the peoplcluf Maryland are retrospective, partaking of the nature of an ex post facto c law, and repugnant to the terms of the declaration of rights as well ns tho eon stitution of the United States. 0. Resolved, That u committee of live from Baltimore city and two (rum each county be appointed by the chair, to lay tho proceedings of this couvculiou before the Goner.il Assembly, and to urgo upon them prompt acquiescence in the right eous demands of tho people of Mary land. 7. Resolved, That a committee of five from the city of Baltimore and two from each county in the State, be appointed by the chair as an executive committee, to devise such measures as they may deem necessary in farthering the objects for which tho convention has assembled. J 8. Resolved, That this convention re commend that the people of Maryland sign memorials to (he Legislature asking that the right of suffrage be restored, and that a committee of oua from eaoh county and one from tho city of Baltimore be appoint ed ly the respective delegations to ob tain signatures to the memorials, and scud I them to the Legislature, with power to such a committee to increase its mem- i bers. 9. Resolved, That when this conven tion adjourns it shall be subject to be re couvencd at such a time as the executive committee shall designate. Mr. Mason, of Anne Arundel, submitted, the following additional resolutions : 1 ■ Resolved, That the executive committee be requested to ascertain the number of persons disfranchised, and the amount of taxes paid by them. After considerable debate of an unim portant character tho resolution was with drawn. On motion a resolution of thanks was adopted to all the papers of the State who have dared to advocate the repeal of the odious registry law. On motion of General Kimmal, of Frederick, the-thanks of the convention were tendered to the officers for the able manner in which they have conducted the business of the body. The convention then, on motion of Mr. Morrison, of Baltimore city, took a recess of fifteen minutes, iu order to enable the different delegates time to suggest to the President the names of gentlemen to be appointed ou the committees provided for in the resolutions just adopted.

He counseled prudence aud moderation in the work now in band, and concluded by expressing the wish that the day was not far distant when he would be enabled tn meet, his fellow citi zens and address them us free aud en franohised'citizciis of his native State. — The large crowd that filled the hull then quietly separated. To the Editor of the jEgit £ Intelligencer. I see in your paper of last week my name given as one of the Secretaries of the vJounty Convention, held in Bel Air, on Monday, the 22d lost. It is an error. I was not a member of the Convention, and was present merely as a looker-on. Respectfully yours, P. H. Rutledge. Bel Air, January 29ih 1860. From the Baltimore Sun. The Finance Bills The influences which have in all the while since the cessation of our great war expenditures justified the inaugura tion of a rapid contraction of the paper currency inflation, shown themselves in imical to that policy, appear to be as ac tive as ever. They are not only active, but, we fear, more potent than they ought to be. The accounts from Washington generally concur in the statement that the ways and means committee of Congress have indefinitely postponed the particular financial measure suggested by Secretary McCullough, in accordance with the gen eral views of his annual report, for fund ing the government currency and short loans. It is now stated that a new meas ure will take its place, which looks to a more gradual system of funding at a rate as it is expressed, not to exceed the posi tive requirements of the government.— This phraseology has the sound of a gracious condescension from the resisting speculative interest, from those who find their profit in the mainlainance of high prices, and in postponing to the last ex tremity, and for ever if possible, the taking of steps towards a resumption, early or remote of specie payments. A leading al legation against Air. McCulloch’s loan bill has been that it gave too great power to the Secretary of the Treasury. To what extent this want of confidence in the administrative capacities and purposes of , the Secretary is, or is not justifiable, we would not undertake to say ; but taking his previous action and the soundness of his expressed views of finance as a crite rion lor judgment, there can be little doubt that the general direction of his future movements would be of that whole some character , showing that business can be done and the labor of the country be better supported on a gold basis—the standard of the world—than on a paper one. The argument is boldly made in some quarters, now that gold certificates are issued, that the time has passed for using gold. No doctrine could be more pernicious, for while it is being preached, the very preachers of it are having to buy gold to pay duties on large imports of cosily luxuries, which the excessive pro fits of speculations on an inflated curren cy enable them to indulge. By this in flated currency they secure the means to monopolize home commodities, and keep them off the market to such an extent as they please—the banks having the privi lege of the issue of this irredeemable pa per, lending with avidity for such purpo ses, in order to make profit and assist in i rolling up the monstrous dividends of i which we hear. Thus paper mongers i do business with their own people, here i at home, without gold ; but as is evident i to the fearful cost of consumers, with an i effect of demoralization which is lainenta- i ble and injurious in the extreme. i It may be that some of the features ol i ; Mr. McCulloch’s bill need modification ; i for some improvement could almost cer- i tainly be made with careful consideration I upon almost any one scheme; but the i objections seem generally to tend to the i direction of letting things remain as they i are. In effect it is held that in this Con gress the work really to be done is sim ple, and in the present and prospective < stale of our own and foreign money mar- ‘ kets, a very much less ambitious and less i sweeping measures will answer every i purpose. This is the ground taken, and t with the success so far achieved the New York Tribune reports the inflation- ' ists joyful. It says ; i “They believe they have cornered re- I sumption in the House committee of ways < and means so that they can sell their < hoarded flour,, pork, coal, &.C., at such I prices as their consciences (?) will allow I them to charge. So the premium on gold '■ begins to stiffen, and every form of gam- | bling with the life-blood of industry and < llte bread of the widow and the orphan i reckons with confidence on a high old I time. < The New York World also accords t with this view, and adds ; - “The commute of ways and means have yielded to the pressure of the speculators, and indefinitely postponed the further consideration of Secretary McCulloch’s i financial bill. • • • The cliques or i speculators, can bring all sorts of influence i to bear on the members of Congress, but c the great mass of the people have no other t voice ihan that uttered for them by their s faithful organs of the press.” 1 Still anotherof the New York Journals ( traces most of this influence to the nation- ( al banks, and says ; ' t “One of the first things to be done is to t take up the present system of national : e banks. The principle on which they are 1 founded is radically wrong. The cred it of the government is being used to the extent of four or five millions for private benefit, or to enrich private companies, and neither the government nor the peo ple receiving any profit whatever. Important to Distillers and Internal Rev enue Officers. The following letter from the comtuis- | siouer of internal revenue, to the as-cssor j of the second district of Ohio, contains ini- | portant information : Sir—By your letter of Dec. 4, stating | the case of—, it appears that they made | their return on Deo. 2, fur the tri-monthly | period of the last roa days of Nuveml er, 1865, in vihioh they had distilled— proof I gallons, and that the return was silent as , to any disposition made of the whiskey ; that on the day of the date of the return the parlies came forward and t he privilege of adding to or corroding the return, alleg iug that tl.o whiskey was bonded fir re moval to a hon ied warehouse prior to No vember 30, and t hat they commenced lo | remove the whiskey Dec. 1; that you are \ informed that aiueb of u is still ut the ds- j tiilory, and that they gives as a reason why the whiskey was not removed that the bonded warehouse was not ready to re ceive it. The question that arises under this slate of facts, aud to which you re quire an answer, is : Was it your duty lo assess for taxes the quantity of whiskey thus reported ? It is held by this office that the duty imposed by law shall bo paid on all spirits not removed to a bonded warehouse before the Ist, the llih and the 21sl day of the month, as the case may require, there being uo allowance of five days for such removal. Messrs. should undoubtedly bo required to pay the duty, unless, upon examination, it is found by you that the excuse given by them for the non-removal of this whiskey is well founded. If it is shown that the parties had taken a permit and bond in duo time, but that the warehouse was not ready or fit for its reception, the irregulari ty should be excused. You should take great care in such cases that the interests of the government are secured, but, at the same time, should not do injustice to the other party. Earthquake in Caracas.— Advices from Valparaiso stale that on the 15th December tbe city of Caracas was visited by two shocks of earthquake. The shocks were very strong and marked in character and seemed to proceed from southeast to northwest. No very material dam age was caused, though several walls were cracked. The whole population was stricken with affright, rushing pale and ghastly out into the streets, some in tears, others ou their knees • saying their prayers.— Many took their beds out of their houses and slept in the open plazas. Large pro cessions paraded tbe streets at midnight, led by the priests chanting their prayers. Many families have left the city to so journ in the country till the danger is past. Ou Monday 18th) a third shock was felt, much like the two former, ex cept slighter and of shorter duration, but it seemed to cause mure general alarm than the first. People quit their employ ments, and the government house was emptied of its employees aud closed.— Even the President of the Republic found himself rushing iuto the streets for safe ty. The shocks extended t 0 Laguayra, Pu erto Cabollo, Valencia, aud all other places heard from. It is feared these shocks are premonitions of a more serious one, as in 1812, when a third of tbe city was destroyed. Produce at the West. —The fol lowing paragraph, from the Cincinnati Ga zette, confirms the report that the West is filled with produce yet lo come forward by rail to the seaboard. The delay in the movement of the pork crop accounts in part for the partial falling off in receipts in December on the Western roads : “Within the last six weeks there has been paid out at this place alone for hogs about $9,000,000. This was mostly Cincinnati capital, and the great bulk of the products resulting from this business are still held here. Prices are nearly all as high in Cincinnati as in New York; consequently, there have been no ship ments of consequence to the Eastern sea board. This accounts for the scarcity ol money on one side. Ordinarily, the mon ey paid out for hogs would, a large part, been buck by this time, through the usual channel of trade; but this onward flow of currency has not yet set in. Country merchants are very slow in temitting.” Morrill yesterday introdu ced into the United Slates Senate a bill “repealing the acts incorporating the cit ies of Washington and Georgetown, vest ing their Legislative powers in Congress, and appointing executive officers of the District till otherwise provided for.”— This is no doubt a dodge to avoid a vote in the Senate on the negro suffrage bill that passed the House. Afraid to vote either for or against extending the right of suffrage to the swarm of negroes ip the District of Columbia, Mr. Morrill and his weak-backed asssociales,in the Senate seek to escape by disfranchising the white population and appointing Congressional Guardians over ihe two cities and the district ! Why not turn them over to the Freedmen’s Bureau at once? Perhaps General Bottle F. Butler might be induced to administer their affairs.— Lancaster Intelligencer , Jan. 26 1 k. Large Fenian Meeting in Buf falo. —A large Fenian meeting was held at Bullalo, New York, on Thursday night. General Sweeny pledged himself if supported, before next May he would conquer a certain territory, upon which the Irish flag should be floated, ami which sliouldjbe made a base of operations against England for the liberation of Ireland.— Colonel Roberts promised within ninety days to have the green flag supported by the greatest army of Irishmen upon which the suit ever shone. The Senate was < enthusiastically endorsed. All the bel- : 1 ligeremt remarks were greatly applauded. I A Hard Hit.—A gentleman recently I returned from the South called on the 1 President, and told him that at Richmond i there was in a single selio I two or three hundred white children as poor and iguo- | rant as any blacks to he found in the whole I South, and urged that they needed the aid of the piiilunlhrop i; everywhere.— | President Johnson replied that he was I very t/lad one Aorthern man has discover \ >'d that there wire any white people at the South. fissgf Ten w thousand “notices to quit” | have Loco given to tenants of houses 1 which are to he ) idled down to make room j for new streets in Paris.
