The doors were opened at :r50, when a com
mittee, consisting of Messrs. ihurman and
Anthony, was appointed in cotnnction with a
committee Of the H,,use to wait upon the Pre
sident and Inform him that the Senate is now
ready to adjourn.
At6:55 Mr. Thurman, from the committer
waiting on the President, reported that the
committee had lsrform.si that duty, and that
the President had no further communication
As this announcement was made, a clerk
from the House app)eared with three enrolled
bills, which were quickly signetl by the presi
dent pro tem. and hurried to the President
They were signed and returned, when, on
motiton of Mr. Sarkcent, at (;:t59 a. m., the
8enate went into executive sessiIon.
In a short time the doors were opened, and
Mr. Ferry addressed tihe Senate as follows:
'The hour of 7 o'clck in the morning has
arrived, and it givs rume pleasure to congratu
late the Senate on the t+rnminatlion of a sea
stan of nearly seve'n months' d(uration, an(d to
comply with the joint resolution of the two
houses fixing this as the hour for final ad
journment. Permit me, Senators, to cordially
thank you for the courtesy without which I
should have failed to meet the delicatet and
responsible duties of the Ch~air. Commend
lng you all, in purlting, to the care of the
same tbeneicent Ruler who has preserved un
broken our numbner throughout tho prolltiged
labors just ended, I declare the seacond se
slon of the Forty-flfth Congress adjourned
The House recedes from the disagreement,
tlo the sundry civil bill In relation to ascer
taining the price of land for a congressional
library. The Senate armondment In relation
to the pay of Southern mail contractore is left
out. The clause in relation to the appropria
tion'for the fisheries award is retained.
Mr. Atkins aihl h had not signed the report
of the committee of ,onferoence, ecause of the
roterltion of the clause in relation to the fish
eries award, to which he could not give his
assent. He did not believe that we justly
owed it, or that it should be paid.
When this bill was reported from the Ap
propriation Committ'e, it recomnlendted the
sum of $16,4388765. The House increased it to
$17,590,186. Thme .enate added $4,484,914, ex
elusive of the fisheries award, making a total
of $22,075,100, not including that award. The
,amount wae reduced by the conferees,
$2,85,000, leaving $19,250,100, which includes
a deficit of $1,000,000 for the Postoffiee and
other departments, leaving $18,250,00)0.
The act for the current fisal year appro
priated $17,133,000. The dlifference between
this and that bill is $1.117,0(00, and this is
made up, in part, of an increase of $250.000
f' r the tuildinogs in the large cities. The're is
also $181',000 for light ihouses n leld $120,00t0 for
more life-saving stlati ins; also $65,l00(i for fo r

Mr.O yfner moved a recess until half-past

Mr. Atkins said that it was no fault of his

My11 I),ar ,sir- I have just recelved yours iof
the elghtlenth instant, with the inelosetd f'opy
of the ('inyrrsivon,,l ii'rord I.,tllal iing yourl
spe'ch, in which refireine was made to t lihe
cornference held by Gov. Pottlus with the r ,i
grelsional delegation oif Mississippi. I had
ristd 'thi speech peeviously, anvd miust atpolo
giz e to you for not having returnted m y thiLkks
for your manly vindiication of mysielf fromn
the charge so often reltorateil of havimng in
cited the peiple of Milssissippi to ipreciiilpate
secelsion. My memory accordsl with youllr
own as to my position in that conferenitice
i. e., that secoession shouldl only i.i adlllpteil
as the last resort, and that a siigle
State could not exri:ise the right to with
dramw from the Union without the moist
iserious injury to hmrself, even if permittul
ieala, kly to do so. And that Missi-si pl land
South (Carollna, not bllinggieographicla Iv con
netedl, could alTfrd little, if any, support toI
each other if they ailone should adopt the
remiredy of secession. Thime subitject haid in a
different form beoun previously presented to
nie, and lhad been nmaturely ,'onsidelilred. Wh'n,
in 1e5i. the q lsttliu of seplaratl State action
or co-itperal ion with ot her Southern States
wis uiiiier discussion in South Carolina, the
hla I on. A. P. Butler wrote to me for my
opinion upon the point involved, and I repli e
lo himl that so far from considering
-South Caraolina bound by any previounsi
dicriration to proceod to the extremity of
separalte secession, that 1 thought she was
rather under obligation to ciloter with and
coimnforrm to the wishes of her nu.lthlern sisters:
in like sitluation to her own. So that when, in
1ihilt, I had to expres an opinion on the salme
point in regard to Mississiplpi, I am quite sure
thut it was ill favor tof waiting for tile co-(p
eration of as ilmany Southern Stater as would i
give dignity to the mellsure and the physical
power :o ma'ntain it; for at that time I was
one of the low men who believel that secession
would inevitably be followed by war. albeit uo
cne molre positively held than myself that the
oereilon of a State hiy' the Federal govern
mernt was the mosnt palpable violation of the
comtiact of our Union-the power to dose, not
having been given in the constitution, but ex
pressly denied by the convention which
framed that instrument.
My recollection of the event of our meet
ing with the (iovernor was for the purpose of
conlltitation in regard to the message he
would send to the Legislature axout to con
vene in special session to decide whether or
n, -ta convention should be c Ilied for the pur
imwse ofd:etermining whether the State of Mis
sItlpli s"lhomidl withdraw from the Union,
and I can have no doubt of the correctniess of
your stutetrent (if my declaration then, viz:
to aidle by the decision of Mississippi and
share her fort unes, whatever they might be.
Before the adjournment of the mneeting I re
cou veil a te legram f lorn two of Mr. Buchanan's
cabinet urging me to , mne itmmniliately t,)
Watshigiion, and, you will proibabtlv re
menb r that unon my handing it to
the G, ve'rnor anll m*,nintWr of the dele
g ition presenit, that a reason for the request
was su;iposed to exist which made my corn
pliancee dteirable, and that I left promptly
for Washingtin. My hope, as well as that of
yourselves, was that I might do something to:
avoid this exzitemenlt, which would be luten
sifted by unfortunate expressions in the forth
coming message of the President. After the
meeting of Congress the manifestations were
such as to leave no ground for expectation I
that the party about to come into power F
would fall to use it for purposes destructive
alike of the rights and interests of the
South. There Is, therefore, no discrepancy
between your statement of what occurred
in Jackson and the advice con
tained in a letter of a subse
quent date. Neither do the opinions expressed I
in that letter evince a desire under other cir
.unmstanc+s for a dtissolution of the Union.
Had it been so, I could not have served in the
following January on a c)mnimittee raised for
the purpose of pacilhcation, and by the re
moval of the cause of discontent to avert the
threatened secession of the Southern States,
nor could you, sir, have remained in the
House of Representatives discussing and 1
voting about the general welfare of the
Unitrd States if you had not wished, though
you might not hope, to preserve the
tnlon of the constitution with the rights and
blessings it was intended to secure. When
the peoIple of Mississipl in convention passed
the ordinance of secession, antd we were on
hially notifled of the fact, I remembrr er with
pride and pletasrure that each and all of her t
dolegates vacatedl their stats, and true to their
allegiantct to the State, returnedt to serve her
ais trest they might.
Be assured, my dear friend, that I did not
In anywise mistake the splirit in which you
spoke, and If it should subject you to any in
convenience, shall regret the task I imposed
upon youll when my cornfdloence and regardl in
dueced me to write to you in the Interest of the
veterans of the war with Mexico.

ITATE BANK CIAICULATION.
some 5ugtrettlonm Made by a Corrempond
ent to the New York Times.
To the Editor of the Niw York Times:
In a recent editorial the Times seems to ad
vt(ato the repeal of the present prohibtitory
tax on the Issue of cireulating notes by Staite
banks. No doubt such a repeal wouli be
popular in Bouie quarters, but it is, at least,
an open question whether all desirable enlds
to be securted by such a repeal cannot be oh
tainsl ity some other plan, which will not
open the dooltr to the dangers involivedwl i the
permission to any and all State banks to issue
notes for circulation as currency without anly
restriction on the part of the Unit.d States
Whatever plan may be adlopted it is, of
course, i.portant to provide that the cur
rency lssue shall be promptly rehdeeed on
demand In coin or its equivalent; that it shall
poss8ss such a degree of elasticity that busi
ness detmantds at certain seasons may be met,
and yet that the currency issued on stuch
special requiroements may be retired without
too. murllch dlisturbtanc. of business relations,
finally. that the claihits of Il cality may be so
far rmet that the West anl Soulth may not he
able to say that they have not been favored
.o far as they have any ligitlrnate claims for
Taking into account all the considerations
referred tot, it would semrn that the national
banking law might he repealed, exceptt as
herelnafter provided for, viz:
No more national banks to be chartered
with the single exception hereinafter referred
to, anil every fucility to be offeried to existing
national banks to be converteul Into State in

banks to be so modified that national iank
notes shill he deprivewl of their lngal-tendler

A provision to be inserted in the law as re

by the laws of any State or Territory, with a
capital of $100,0(K) (or perhaps $50,(K0)), shall
have the privilege ofi issuing circulating notes

ianks, viz: the dieposit of government itorids,
which shall be ample security for the redemp

T quie't the appl'rehensiins of nervou ls psr
sons who fear to wake up sine ntorningl to
find that a JlU et of hostile ironcladu Is lying
in the 'thamrIes with London at its mercy, one
of t he city journals calls attention to the fact
that all the Thanrmes forts a re now fully arrned
an.r lt for service, while i a system of trpetldo
defense is ready to be hlld down at any mo
mlent. lThe Medway Is guarded in like man
inor. There are niumerous new forts arined
with the lheaviest guns and so placedl as ef
fctnually to sweep the river and tontcenrtrate
their fire upon an onemly. Bult there are lbet
tir def'ns-s thin even forts and torpeiluos.
The journal quoted says.
"But the nodern Iro nclad is regarded as
,uch a terrible montster that too nmany pre
cautiions cannot, it is thought, tie takern
against its inrsiinrs al tndllric s the coi Ise1quenc is
that, with all our delfinses, thter are Tpeople
who still think London unsafe. To satislfy
these, we now mention thatt there exist far
better safeguards against the progress of an
Ironclad fleett up the 'l'harntes than any yet
mentioned. If the armored ships of modern
timCes are less viulnerable than woodeln (tis,
it must be rernembered that they draw
more water, and it is very questlora
hie whether anty of the first-class ironclads
of to-day could float safelv as far as Black
wall, except on the brim of a high tide, and
then the greatest care and attention would I
be necessary It its navigation. The Indepen
zia, the present Neprtune of the British navy,
it will be r,'iollectedl, grontmded very seriously
ofT WHoolwich when she was launched, and
this tioo when she had none oif her armameint
on board, and was only half plated. But the
greatest safeguard of all at our disposal lies
in the removal of all huoys an" beacons friom
the waterway; if lt.Itse were got rid of, not
even a Tharnes pilot, it is said, could navigate
a heavy ship up the Thames in safety.
The prospect of troublle with Russia is no
longer immtinent, and, just now. London has
nothing to fear but that other great power,
Mr. Jerry Donovan.
A lady in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, while walk
ing along the bank of a large creek about a
month ago, slipped and fell Into the water.
She was an expert swimmer, and in a short
time would have been on shore had she not
been caught in a mass of weeds, which corn
pletely paralyzed her lower limbs and ren
dered her farther advance toward the shore
without assistance impossible. She managed
to keep her head above water for hours, and
cried for help until she was hoarse. She
eventually fainted, and, from that time until
she was rescued by a gentleman next morn
ing, she remained unconscious. When she
was found a lug of wo, d floated on the water,
and on it her head was pillowed, thus pre
venting her frorm drowning. How the portion
of the tree trunkl came to be under her head
is a mystery. The gentleman had to work
for arn hour before her nether extrenmitiee were
released from the weeds. She had been in the
water nearly twenty hours before help came.
