Among the many men sojourning in this city at present, cither for p'ap .esof business or pleasure, arc two extractors of coraculate particles, vulgarly called corn doctors. From the census of the inhabitants ofth.3 United States recently taken, it does "Vhel, vhat ish you, bray?" said the Daich'man. "I'm the genuine corn-excavator and toe manipulator, and anti -imposition candidate for every job in that'ereline in thisherecity that's what I am, old pickled cabbage," said the Yankee. 'Vhat pe your shystem?' said the Dutch man. "Does you pare or draw?" Pare! pate!" said the Yankee; "why you 'tarnal gumphead, you you're jest as igno as ubabod Doolittle's sorrel mare, and she had sii.h an aversion to larnin' that she tvcj Id' nt carry the children to school in sleighin, time, nohow Do pare! No, you ignoramus, I draw out the corn by the application of my unrivalled, magnetic, high pressure plaster that's my system, you ani mated, pot of pickles. Do you think," ad ded the Yankee, 4I would cut into a man's toe as if I was digging a Dutch dyke, or ex ploring a Mexican mine. Why, if that's your system you ought to be indicted under the maiming; act." ' "Shentlemens," said the Dutch doctor he evidently thought he was no match for the Yankee, in eloquence at least 'Shen tlemens I gives proofs o my professional skill I toes'nt talk none much;" and he opened a small box in which. was deposited numerous small substances, which he aver red he hud extracted from individuals in,ev ery station of life, from the President of the United States down to plantation negroes! "O, there's no mistake about that," said the by-standers; 'There's the proof of the pudding, sure enough." "Gentlemen," said the Yankee doctor, "ho!d on for one minnit " and he pulled a tin case out of his pocket which was chuck full of corns, every one of them, he assurred those present, extracted by his genuine, un rivalled, magnetic, high-pressure plaster. Now the tide of triumph turned in favor of the Y.mkee, and the company were about to dub him the legitimate member of the corn cutting faculty, when the Dutch doctor, after viewing closely the contents ofthe Yankee's tin box, cried out "Yankee trick, Yankee trick. Dunder dem ish so corns, but tops of gooses toses cut .uppf Jjcs meat"'15r sa- senjjers. This insinuation was too much for the Yankee; he made a blow at the Dutchman, which one oft hose present warded off Card were finally exchanged, and the whole af fair is a "pretty one as it stands" and in a fair train for a duel. It will no doabt be a cutti7ig business; but be it as it may, we have given the particulors in toe toe as they were related to us. Pic. From the Nashville Banner. LETTFR FROM THE EDITOR. Washington City. Feb. 8, 1841. General Harrison did not arrive to day as I had been informed he would, when I wrote my letter yesterday. To morrow morning at 11 o'clock is the time fixed u pon for his entry. He will be conveyed from Baltimore to this place in a car specially provided for the purpose. It is believed that the .'suspension of specie payments by the Philadelphia banks, follow ed as they will be by all the banks south cf spirit rivalry amongst them as exits among barbers or beard shavers, a much more important and numerous class. We are iqnorant of I the patronymic of either of the parties: we only kn v that one of them is a native ofthe universal Yankeenation andtheother claims to be the countryman of Admiral Von Tromp." Both of them are of diminutive stature, but there are no bounds to their own ideas of their respective professional excel lence. The Dutch doctor was in the bar room of one of our hotels yesterday, evident ly under the influence of the ardent, lectu ring a large crowd on the beauties of his "system", A. wag who was ripe for "a rig," drew his likeness on a sheet of paper, repiesenting;him vl:'. the bottle to his mouth, and wrote und? i aeath it: A' Corn Doctor Corned. The doctor knew nor heeded it not, but went on expatiating on the scientific manner in which he excavated those small, osseous substances so anuoymg. particularly' in". this wet weather, to both ladies and ffeniiemen, and was proceeding apparently to his own gratification and the amuse ment cf the by standers, when the Yankee corn doctor drop ped in, and he too had a drop in his eye. He could see, however, how the game was go ing and thought he would join in. He com menced singing ; "Com rigs"ariv barley rigs; "Corn rigs gro 1 bony'1 "Wat dosh you mean by dat?'' said the Dutch doctor, turning rc land. 'Just that you're a h umbug and aint no corn doctor, no how yo j can fix it." said the Yankee. ment, Mr. Preston in the War and Mr. Granger in Navy With the appointments of Attorney General' Secretary of the Treas- , ury and Secretary of War, filled by Crit tenden, Bell and Prestoa.the Southern States would be ably aud adequately represented in the Cabinet, and I doubt not abundantly satisfied. This arrangement, however, with to the Treasury, War and Navy Depart ments, is mere matter of speculation and desire, on the part of a portion of the Whig members of Congress, and as such I give it, without being aJe to express any opinion as to the probability of its consumation. The Senate had the bankrupt bill under consideration to-lay, but it is not believed that sufficient time remains of the pfesenj session to .mature and get through both Hons esa measure so complicated in itsprinciples and detaili' and about which such a 'diver sity of opinion exists. In the House a member, from Ohio hung along speech about the Florida War upon a proposition to appropriate one hundred thousand dollars to buy out the Seminoles. not appear that these corn shavers are very numerous as a body, and yet, judging from ;nffAf v . . f! Aew York, settles the question of a called mL ui nine iu tis jjiuux u MJiui oi t"k u or r.i sess:un ui vuinjre&s. a uai uic trueyi 01 me re-suspension will necessarily be to occasion a lanre falling in the revnue of the current year, by checking importations, no man ac quainted with the subject can at all doubt Under the expectation of an equalfzation of exchanges by a resumption of specie pay ments on the part ofthe banks south of them, the New York importing merchants had given extensive orders tor foreign merchan dise, which, to a great extent, will be coun termanded irmnediaiely, an4 thus instead of nineteen millions of revenue from the cus toms in the present year, as it is estimated by Mr. Woodbury, the chances are that it may not exceed fourteen or fifteen millions if so much. This at once swallows up the five millions of Treasury notes' which the Treasury note bill passed the other day au thorizes the next administration to issue, in dependent of the five millions proposed to be issued by the present administration, and leaves, in addition to the deficiency arising from other causes, such a deficit in the means necessary for carrying ou the Government, as renders further legislative action absolute ly indispensable prior to the next regular session of Congress Speculation still continues rife with regard to the residue of the Cabinet appointments Heretofose it has been said that Mr. Preston did not desire a seat in the Cabinet but the anxiety manifested by a portion of his South ern friends to day. on the subiect, leads to the belief that he would not decline a seat if ten dered, He is talked of day for the Nav v Some influential men from diflerent quarters ofthe Union are suggesting the propriety of placing Mr. Bell ifilhe lreasury Depart LETTER FROM THE EDITOR. Washington City, Feb. 9th, 1841. Gen, Harrison arrived to day in the midst of a tremendous snow storm, and has taken lodgings at Gadsby's. The concourse as sembled to receive him at the Depot was immense, but the neces:?ity of using umbrel las deprived many of the spectators in the Avenue ofthe opportunity of seeing him. The talk toklay with regard to the Cabi net, is that Gen. Harrison has signified his intention if it meets with the approbton of his friends, of appointing Mr. Ewing to the Treasury Department, Mr. Bell to th War, Mr. Granger to the Navy, and of tendering the Post Office Department toadistingusshed citizen of North Carolina. The gentleman from North Carolina alluded to will not, I feel assured, accept the Post Office Depart ment, and the appointment will have to fall upon some other citizen of that State or from the South East. There will be difficulty, 1 apprehend, in filling this Department from the Souih, and jhat circumstance may poss--ibly prevent the above arrangement from beingcarried into entire effect ' It is under stood that the South Atlantic States prefered the Navy to the Post Office, and that some ofthe members of Congress from that quar ter desired that the former should be tender ed to Mr. Preston: The whole matter will probably be settled in a- day or two Gert Harrison, it is understood, will proceed to Virginia in a few days. The Bankrupt bilP has been under dis- cussion in the Senate to-day, aud the snfecis of slavery and abolition in the House. I thought Black of Georgia,- would have gone into a paroxysm ox jumped out of his skin.

EXAMINATION OF THE ELEC TORAL VUTii.5. Prom the Madisonian, Feb. 11 th Yesterday being the day appointed for the official examination of the votes" for President and Vice President of the United Staies, the two Houses proceeded at welve o'clock to the execution ofthe order ia re: gard to it, adopted on the 2d inst. , . A message having been received by the Senate that the House of Representativce was ready to receive them, the Senators preceeded by the Vice President, the Ser-geants-at-Arras of the two House's, the Sec retary and his assistants, went to the Hall, and took the seats provided for then on the right of the Chair, They were received by the members standing. The Vice President was conducted to the Chair as presiding officer of the meeting, the Speaker occu pying a seat on his left Mr. Preston, the teller on the part of the Seriate, and Messrs: Cushing and John W. Jones, the tellers on the .part of the House, took the places as signed to them atjbe Clerk's table. Thn Senators and Representatives being seated, the Vice President proceeded to open he packes addressed to him containing the votes of the different States. These having been read at length by the tellers, and com plete lists having been made, the Vice President then rose and announced the fol lowing result Whole number of votes for president, 5294 Of which Wm- H.
