Now, said Mr. A. it may be urged, as indeed, in his section, it bad been repeat edly, that the President of the United States was against the annexation of Texas : and that it is a base calumny to say that any prejudice in favor of this measure had existence at the White House ! He had seen such things in the public prints, and lately in the official pa ling to and a motion take Lis seat, accordi the House, the gentleman from Massa chusetts should do so. Mr. ithett went on to make some re marks, expressive of the hope that the gentleman whom Mr. Adams, as he al had seen, in intr the late message ot the Executive, how much was not in the document, as well as how much was in it.

But the grounds upon ' Awhich the prayer of all of them was bas ved': were the same.', Different reasons and arguments may be adduced in support of rialists. Mr. A said he had reason, even, to fear that that gentleman favors the annex ation of Texas to this government, and he feared and believed that such were the sentiments of a majority of the committee of which that gentleman was chairman, and to which he now proposes to refer should give his reasons, very briefly, for that motion,; .' - AIL these memorials are merely nega- tive. I ney do not asK ior any action oi this House upon any matter yet before it, butsimply,' that the propriety, of an act, not now proposed to oe done, ne reierrea to a committee of this House. There was, clearly.lio need, at present, of any such reference ai was proposed. The re public of Texas had - attempted to open a negotiation for ." admission to the Union, with this government, . which overture was declined on the ground of our rela tions with Mexico. This government had peremptorily refused to do anything whatever upon the matter. Nothing had been done, or had been proposed to be done, in Congress, upon the subject. No memorial in favor of such a measure had ever been before this House. No refer ence of any such subject had been made to a committee, nor had any committee to consider it been appointed. It was time enough. Mr. Wise con- m eelved, to discuss the subject which had been dwelt upon with so much feeling and earnestness by the gentleman from Massachusetts, when it should come up regularly for discussion. As to the ques tion of slavery in Texas, and the infusion of its "venom into the pure morality of this Republic, for the present (said Mr. wise) toe certainly may not say to the republic of Texas, in the words of St. paul, u Would to God that thou wert both almost and altogether such as we are, except these bonds!" He moved to lay the pending motions of reference on the table. Mr. Rhett and Mr. Dowson appealed to Mr. Wise to withdraw his motion, to enable them to make some reply to what had failed from Mr. Adams. Air. Wise insisted upon his motion, as the only proper course to bo taken in the present position of the subject. Mr. Grennell, of Massachusetts, de manded the yeas and days, which were ordered ; and being taken, stood as fol lows : Yeas 127. Nays 68. So the motion of Mr. Wise was agreed to, and the whole subject ordered to lie on the table. CONVENTION OP UHIO.

The Chair insisted on the rule. Mr. Adams. And does the Speaker, when a member is out of order, peremp tonly bid him to take his seat? liberty was more noticed by the people who witnessed the display, than the whole tram which was present : and that the spectators of the scene, instead of admir ing the magnihcence ot their tyrants, were thinking only of the absent statues of isrutus and Cassius, the friends and advocates ot treeaom.

Mr. Grennell put this Question to the A nature of the more liberal rule, in such . - ft r . motion or reierence was too tar fetched to be in order. Mr. Adams. But suppose these me morials ware against a war with Mexico; would it not be in order to discuss that Chair: When a gentleman makes a mo- part of the message relating to that sub iiuu, me cueci ui wuicn is to permit mm to proceed, is it not understood that his motion involves the condition that he pro ceed in order?" The Chair said certainly. Mr. Adams declared that to have been his declaration, in what he had already said, when called to order by the Chair. The yeas and nays being about to be called, Mr. Snyder withdrew his objec tion, and Mr. Adams proceeded. ' He said that, as there appeared to be an indispos ition on the part o! a portion of the House, to hear him farther upon this topic, at this time, he would abridge his remarks and hasten to a close. What he had said was intended to enforce the objections which he had stated against the proposed reierence of the memorials from Massa chusetts to the Committee on Foreign Af fairs ; first, that the subject-matter ofthose memorials was not appropriately refera ble tolhat committee ; and secondly, that that committee was not, in iuelf, a prop erly constituted commiuee for such a re ference, inasmuch as six out of nine of the members composing it were .already committed, by - feeling and position, ad- rersely to tb object and prayer of the pe titioners. V He had allowed himself, while urging these Objections, to rhak some re marks upon the spirit manifested in this matter by. gentlemen Similarly committed, and by those sections of country t6 which they belong ; and thence to argue against the prppriety ofthe reference proposed by tne memDers irom Aiaryianc. in or was this objection," he contended, at all incon sistent with IKatlreS'pect which hie enter tained toward the4gentleman , composing that committee, ' in every other'' point of viewr y-'K '::v '-;;; :f Mr Adams urged a still further objec tion ' to; the "proposed." reference, - derived from the change which -since the special session of Congress, it had beer houghfj eign affairs change; the contemplation ject, upon the question of reference? 1 he Chair. That is not the point un der discussion and it will be time enough tor the Chair to decide it when it arises. Mr. Adams remarked that, did he not know what the composition ofthe House was, he would appeal from the decision of the Chair. He considered it nerfeetlv competent to argue, as he had done, up on the unfitness of the committee on for eign aflairs to act upon these memorials. by reason of the fact that so much of the message as relates to the affairs of Mexi co would of course be referred to that committee. But under the decision ofthe chair, he should reserve what he had to say farther on that point, until the mouths of members inclined to advocate the cause of freedom upon that floor should be per mitted to be opened more widely if, in deed, there was any hope that that time would ever arrive. Mr. A. remarked, in closing, that he did not wish the parliamentary usage in such cases to be strictly observed in this instance, in tne appointment ot a mover of a select committee to be chairman of that committee, should the motion he had made prevail. But he did claim that the chairman and the majority should be fa vorable to the petitioners. This he con sidered it was his right to claim, as par liamentary practice of long standing. He did not ask for a great majority, but sim ply a bare majority. , Mr. Wise, of Virginia, said he bad not risen to discuss the motion immediately before the House. He regretted that the gentleman from, Massachusetts. had gone so much at length, and in such a manner into the merits of a ,question not r. yet, be fore that body. .He felt no excitement at what he had just been listening4tQ, though the rehiarks which had fallen from the. gentleman were calculated to produce such, feelings.

Sir, on the principle inculcated by the great and good Dr. Franklin, to diffuse as widely as possi ble every means in our power to mitigate or sof ten the afflictions of suffering humanity, I feel it incumbent upon me to make known through the medium of your useful paper, that on reading therein an advertisement of Dr. Jebb's Liniment, for the cure of HHE UAL3. TISJU, I was forcibly impressed with a belief that it was calculated to remove the severe Rheumatic Affection to which I had been for seven or eight years subjected, sometimes almost depriving me of the use of my limbs. I accordingly procured a bottle, and be fore I had used the whole of it, found very sen sible relief. This increased my confidence in it. and led me to obtain another bottle, the use oi which has completely removed the swellings and pains of my lirt.bs, together with the cramp, and restored them to their wonted vigor. I am re spectfully yours. Georgk Taylob, Jr. JSempstead, L. I.

Nothing but a fair trial can give g adequate idea of its unrivalled excellence. It is also one of the best applications known for stiff ness of the joints, numbness, sprains and chil blains.

" Truth will out'" When rogues fall out, honest men come at the truth.', The following we cut from the Natchez Daily Courier, of Sept. 13, " The veriest slave in the whole south ern country, whose back receives its daily laceration from the whipy and whose body pines with famishing hunger, would not be guilty of uttering such treasonable sen timents with regard to his master's inexo rable rule." "What does it mean? The Van Buren editor of the Grand Gulf Adverti ser in a tirade against us, uses the above language is he writing for the northern abolitionists?

Friend of Man. Origin of the American Indians. A small octavo ofrtwo hundred and fifty pages, bearing the foregoing title, has recently been published at Toronto, U.C., by J. Mackintosh. The author is a Scotch gentleman, of extensive travel, who has bestowed much study upon the question involved in the title of his book. His labors have been directed more to research, than to original speculation or composi tion. The theory ol Mr. Mackintosh is, that the American Indians are of --Tartar, or Asiatic origin a positiou which he sustains, conclusively, as we think, by an e-tensive comparison ofthe manners, hab its, customs, &c of the northern Asiatic nations with those of North America. He has col leaed many and striking evi dences in regard to their religious: ob servances, their dances, feasts, and in many other respects, appertaining as well to "times "of peace as in YrT.-Ni YSpec. ..
