O* The President has approved and signed the General
?unkrupt bill.
I hi; Tkaii. of the SkrpcMT.?If there are any who be?
lieve we have been too hasty or noon in our condemnation >:
the juggling course pursued by the Opposition, and especiaih
by the Members from this City, in relation to tbe Ban! rupt
Law, wo n?k them tu consider the following facts:
It is well known that, early in the Session, upon the first
test vote, there were abaut 100 Whig and 20 Loco-Foco
"vote* in favor of the bill, being a clear majority of all the
Members elected, (237,) and a practical majority of about
20. Tbe friends t>f the bill felt perfectly safe. |i lt (hey
?were ut length awakened from their dream of security by the
unmistakable evidence of the open desertion ?r secret treach?
ery of its formet Loco-Foco friends.' It wns evident that
there was h\teeret understanding among the < Ipposition thai
this bill must be killed, in order b> bring the Session to nought
and throw odium upon the Whig party ! \V!io(1 the bill was
?II ready to he taken out of Committee and passed, on I : i
day week, they were astounded to learn that the axe wa
ready t?i descend on the neck of the hill! They were obliged
tu appeal to the magnanimity "f the Whir: oto'tirietits of t!.,
measure not to take advantage of this treachery; but aid tie n
to get it back into Committee, which they carried l>v four
majority, against tint whole power of Loco-Focoism. Bui
they wer?- still in imminent peril. On Tuesday of this wet
Mr. Clifford of Maine, one of the most dexterous und un
Mcrupulous of Loco-Koros in the House, contrived to worm in
as an amendment to an amendment a proposition which had
been once already rejected, that this Law should not inter?
fere with Slate Bankrupt, Lairs! This extraordinary,
deadly proposition; unking tho measure not only a farce bu
clearly unconstitutional, for the Constitution authorizes Cmi
gress to establish " uniform laws of Bankruptcy," only?wa
carried, by 99 to ffi votes?only Ingcrsoll, Rhclt, Roose?
velt and Ward, of the Loco-Foce party voting against ii
XfjT Wood not voting. The hill being thus destroyed, wa?
nexl formally knocked in the head, by laying it on the tab!-:
Yeas 1 ID, Nays'J? : on<y Plumcr, Roosevelt, Sauf on/. War
and Wood of the Locos voting; against the motion. [Plutnei
ami Satifurd hud just voted fur Clitlord's fatal amendment ]
Then the House resounded with the jeers and exultations ol
the Locos, who believed ihat the hill was destroyed, carryinf
with it all the Great Measures of the Extra Session, and
breaking up lite Whig patty. All over the Country, ns fas;
as the news could bo disseminated, it was fondly believed,
by those who wished it. that the Administration was ship
but their delusion was short-lived. The Willis imme?
diately assembled in Council, and, after a free interchange o!
opinion, resolved to meet and baffle tho arts of their unscru?
pulous adversary. They had hitherto voted, each man foi
such measures as ho individually favored or his District fe
an interest in; but they found that this was potting the
whole power of legislation into the hands of their thoroughly
disciplined opponents. One HuiCDREB and Ten of them
ttow resolved to act as Representatives for the whole Conn
try, and each vote for such measure? as that Country required,
waning local interests or prejudices. Thus resolved, the,
went into tho House tho next morning. Mr. Gamble i : G ?
moved h reconsideration of tho vote by which the Bankrupt
bill had been crushod. Mr. Cave Johnson of Tenn. ( Loco)
movrd to lay this motion also on the table. This was rejeel
??d : yeas 92, nays 111; only Roosevelt and Wood of the
Loco .Focos voting nay. The reconsideration was now car?
ried.: yens 103, nays i>b' ; only Roosevelt of the Loco Focos
in the affirmative; GCf' Wood n<e\ voting on this vital ques?
tion, though ho could not have been absent unless by design
The original motion to lay ihe hill on the table was now ne?
gatived: yeas 99, nays 112 ; Roosevelt again the only Loco
Foco in the affirmative ; Cr' Wood dodged : Sanford ditto;
Plumer und Ward, who hud yesterday voted against laying
the bill on the table, now voting exactly contrary. .Next Mr.
Clifford's destructive amendment was reconsidered: yeas
116, nays 93: iij" Not one Loco-Foco in the affirmative;
R sosxvttT dodging; Wood voting plump in the negative.
And now Mr. Clifford's amendment was rejected: yeas 90,
nays 1 IS : O" Not one Loco Foco-against it: Wood. I'm -
m kk and .1. B. Da wsosj?. favor of it; Rooskvkh uKJ'st?l
skulking the cote. The bill having now boon slightly amend?
ed, the question was taken on its final passage, which was
carried: yeas 112, nays 106 : Roosicvklt, Wood -;u ! J. i*
Dawsom oeing the only l.oco-Focos in the affirmative,
(Roosevelt having suddenly come to life ;) und every one oi
these having plainly indicated by his course on preceding
propositions his disposition to kill the bill if he could do it
afely. Sanford dodged; Plumcr und Ward voted plump
against the bill, though the latter was pledged to vote foi it.
But the bill is passed, no thanks to them or their party, and
from the l?th of February next will bo the law of the land
And now we usk every intelligent man to examine this sim?
ple record, and judge whether this gieat measure has not
been treated by its Loco Foco pretended friends with studied
hostility and systematic treachery. The open opposition ol
Wright, Ferrit, and the great bulk of the party may be re?
spected while it is condemned; but for ' the hand of Joab.'
which is outstretched in seeming kindness with a dagger in
the sleeve, wo have no feeling short of-detestation.
EGT Hon. John T. Sti'akt, having received his creden?
tials a< Member elect, started posthaste for Washington,
ami arrived in the Houso just in time to vote for the Hank
nipt bill on its final passage. Ho was welcomed with hearty
congratulations. _
cry The Herald yesterday had a coarse attack -n Mr.
Granger for stopping the Sunday Mail to Boston. V, e
th'-.i"ht every man of common sense knew that the Mail
Service for 1S41 teas arranged by John M. Nilet and tht
contracts advertised beforw Mr. Granger came into office.
He had no more to do with the stopping of this Mail than the
Postmaster General of Texas.
Death 1st the Citt Pkiso.\.?A colored woman named
Amanda Bartlett, who was committed to the City Prison on
Wednesday lor vagrancy, died in that institution on 'lliurs
day night, of apoplexy, though attended by the physician oi
the Prison.
Th*. loss or the Erie.?The investigation of the causes
which led to the destruction of the Erie, closed at Buffalo
on Monday afternoon last. After patiently hearitig aJ! the
testimony which could he aaMurisd from the survivors of those
who were on board of her at the time of the burning, the Ju?
rors here unanimously arrive..] at the conclusion that "the Cn*
was cnu?ed by the bursting of one or more demijohns of
-pirits of turpentine standing on the boiler deck and cemmu
riieatirir with the fire in the furnace of the boilers."?that
?? ?aid demijohns hurst by r?a*on of th?* beat of the '???ilcrs
over which they were placed, and that ili? boat had been
lately painted and varnished, and this, together ?i'.ii the b:?r>
wind, drove the flames so rapidly through the boat that it was
impossible for those on board to -top the lire or prevent the
destruction of said boat." They further testify that the des?
truction of the bent was accidental, 'he being in ail re*p*-c;i
completely fVjrnuhed with apparatus for extinguishing fire,
j and tno'P than ordinary means for the safety of the boat and
passengers having hem provided. The jury also recommend
boat owners to furnish their boats with a sufficient number of
ifc boats to sustain all the passengers they may carry ; also,
?is auxiliary, to cany a suitable number of pine or whit^-wood
plank, and that they be so placed as to be easily thrown over?
board; also, life-preservers sufficient for one handred passen
m i -, and that they be inflated and placed in the berth- im
mediately nftrr leaving port.
Lei preventalives, similar to those recommended by the
the jurv, b* established by law, an?i let tiiat law be in every
ease rigidly enforced, and the destruction of human life, by
the burning of hoats, will be far Ies? frequent than it has been
for a few years past.
ICr* 'i he Standard left out the Chapman-bird yesterday
that bad for some days headed its morning advices from
Washington'! It croans about an awful Whig Caucus at
Vir. Web-ter's. at which an immense log-roil was agreed
upon, embracing the passage of the Bankrupt, Land and
(cvenuo bills, the continuance of the present Cabinet, the
confirmation of the important nominations now before tie
i ::ate. &c. Was ever any thing so abominable ? The
Whig Party lias actually refused to tear itself to pieces for
nothing, but virtually resolved iti-tend. in spite of a sore dis
tnpointment, to pas- the Great Measures of Relief which the
Country requite-! HorriSde conspiracy! Slamm, where
ne you ' Have nn Indignation Meeting called ih the Park
brthwith, tell Garry Gilbert to grind out a new ditty, Mon
l>'\vczac to pet up another speech against England and
Vic Leod, with a translation, and have Vanderpot 1 tell the
mil-frog story over attain with trimmings, and not be s,,
lorribly tedious as he was last time. The atrocity of having
mOld Federalist in the Cabinet should be appropriately dwelt
m, and the Resolutions .sent to Buchanan or Rcucl Williams
o lay before the Senate. Something mvn( be done, that's
?crtain. The Whig party positively refuses to destroy itself!
What true Loco'- bristles do not stand erect at the bare idea
if such monstrous, unheard-"! i'iiijuity on the part of British
Bank Federal Whiggery!
The Case or Miss Rogers ami Morse.?As .1. W.
I Morse, who was arrested on suspicion of being the murderei
if Miss Mary C. Hogers, by proving an althi has exonerated
j himself from that horrid charge, and is now in custody only
? i answer a charge of assault and battery on mid abuse of hi*
.vifc iitiiii he can furnish bail in $500 for his appearance for
rial, it may not be improper to state the reason lm assigns
?or having fled from the city, and remained absent until
?rough! back hither on the suspicion ol being a murderer.?
He states, us uro informed, that he was not acquainted with
?li-s Rogers, and firmly believed that the young lady with
?vhom be went to and staid ull night at Stnten Island
?vas no otlior than Mis- Maty C. R 'gers herself; that after
hearing of her death and the discovery of her dead body, he
bought she had destroyed herself on account of the treatment
I 'he hud experienced from him. und that he therefore fl'?d for
ear of being brought into difficulty on her account; that he
i did not discover his mistake until last Thursday mottling,
vhen the young lady with whom ho wss at Staien Island was
brought to the Police Office and proved to be not Mis?
Rogers, but the identical female ho had endeavored to seduce
?.no n dishonorable connection at State? Island.
Whether this is the reason of his hegira to the Last, or a
nere fiction of his own", we leave to other* to determine.
Fire in Main1..?The extensive Woolen Factory at Read
ic-ld, Maine, with all its contents, was entirely destroyed by

Florida News.?By the way of Savannah we have further
iccounts from Florida. The Indians had shown themselves
again in the neighborhood of Micanopy, and fired upon a
white man belonging to Carver's plantation. He escaped,
however, and having carried the news to Micanopy, a party
of 50 men. commanded by Lieut. Whiting, immediately
started in pursuit. A mounted force, under Lieut. Hanson,
had niso sturted from Wacahooto anil another purty from
Micanopy, under Capt. Holme?. The Indians still con?
tinued to come in at Tampa. Lieut. G. W. Patten, with a
detachment of 70 dragoons and infantry, had started from
Fort Russell, to co-operate with another party from Fort
Kingv (ander the orders, of Lieut. Col. Riiey, of the 2d In?
fi, ttry.) in search of lluleck Titstenuggee. who still remains
indomitable. Great hopes were entertained, however, that
he could not escape these simultaneous scouts. Fort Holmes
is a thdoned, and its garrison divided between Fort Ri;--ell
and Fort King. [American.
The Chatauque brought down, last evening, a male child
about lo month- old. that was picked up in the lake some

A H*rrr Escape from a Snare.?A genteel looking
Englishman, of" prepossessing manners and address, a ?h?rt
time <;lc? became acquainted with a handsome, interesting
young widow lady in this city?the adopted daughter of ?ne
of our most re?jhe<::abie and wealthy citizens?and so
? won upon her affections, by his polita and gentlemanly con
? duet, that !:? obtained her consent to marry him : and they
were to have been unite i in marriage tbe present week.?
The disenminatinr eye of the foster father of the lady, how?
ever. fiise.,vered something in the intended bosbasd of his
adopted daughter that induced itispici&n, and caused him to
cherish for the lover the uiixt cordial dislike. He therefore
instituted the most searching enqtriries into his character and
conduct, and obtained from the Briti-h Consul and sons the
most un'nvorable testimony of his utter destitution of merit
and morai worth. He also obtained of the lover of his
daughter a reference a* to hi? character, and he i >on ascer?
tained tlitt tift had been referred to a man 3? w arthle** as
he believed the wooer of his daughter to be.
Not entirely satisfied with this, however, he proceeded to
th" Clerk's office of the Court of Sessions to ascertain w'ne
I ther the name of the man who sought his daughter"- hand,
was not registered amongst those of the felons who had been
before that Court for trial?and was soon confirmed by refe?
rence to the record that H-J. C-(the name of the
devoted, iowr of his daughter)?had been convicted in Sep
tember, 1340. of a constructive grind larceny, in fraudulent?
ly obtaining a valuable pnid watch from Mr. Henry O'Con
ner, nnd had been tcnlenced to the Stole Prison for two
years: bm that in the exercise of Executive clemeney,
C-had beet; pardoned on the ISth March last, and rest?
red to lii-erty.
This intelligence, astounding as it was, was communica?
ted to the young widow, who thanked heaven and her father
for having >o opportunely rescued her from ?0 disgraceful a
connexion, and the shame and misery that must have inevit?
ably followed.
It is needles- to n Id, that Mr. C- was promptly in?
formed by tho rather that if he dared to enter his doer again,
be would be kicked out much quicker than he entered.
We understand that, since this gentle hint, he has entirely
discontinued bis attentions.

Mr. ClaT took the floor, and entered at length into the
subject, being compelled to it by a sense of duty, as be said,
although against his feelings. He adverted to the melan?
choly providence by which Johs Tyler was called to the
Presidential Chair. At that event, he had in his own mind
at first doubted the course that would be pursued by him in
the performance of his Presidential duty with regard to this
subject?w hich hail ever been dear to him. ( Mr. C.)?n Bank
of the United State?. But when, in bis InnuguraJ Address
to the People of the United States, he avowed that his course
: in this respect would he guided by the ever glorious lessons
a red example of the Father* of the Republic, he ( Mr. C.)
w as sati-iied. The address was Whig?entirely Whig. Mr.
Clay referred to the events of this Extra Session, their pn>
; tracted deliberations on. and tit length passage of, this Bank
bill by both brunches of Congress. He had not dreamed of
1 a veto: but one had now come.
He criticised, at length, the Message. It treated in too
har?h a manner and made a poor return for lha 16th funda?
mental rule with regard to the location of the branches in
the States, w hich was the fruit of much compromise and con?
ciliation. The President had proceeded entirely on the ground,
in relation to this bill, as expressed in the Message, that
there was but one course for him?to assent or dissent. He
{minted out two other courses. If the President hod Consti?
tutional scruples as to signing the biil so loudly called for by
the people, ke might have withheld action on it for ten days,
and it would then, according to the Constitution, havr be?
come a law. He conceived that there was nothing dishonor?
able in this course. The other was according to Mr. Ttler's
example, when n Senator, if be could not comply with the
tns'ruciiont of the people of the I'nioa, his constituents,
two-thirds or three-fourth- of whom desired a bank, he could
have resigned his commission. Mr. Clav did not ?ny that
he wished for this, fur from it. but he was showing the three
courses that might have tak??n, instead of the one only, as
the Fresidcnt had assumed. The Veto had been interposed
against the wishes of a largo majority of the people, of both
Houses of Congress, against the unanimous opinions of a
Cabinet, aguinst the opinions of muny fathers of the Repub?
lic, of Washington and Jefferson and Madison, and against
the affirmative decisions of six Congresses, as to the Consti?
tutionality of a bank, with no Congressional decisions against
But it was vetoed ; and the question notr tr?.r. what course
they should pursue ; should they give up all their measures
because they had lost one. and divide the party and disap?
point the hopes of relief indulged in by the country, from it 1
No. they should pass other measures, und return to their
constituents knowing that they had done tall that men could
do under the circumstances. Thero were now attempts
made toagreoon some other plan that would meet the views
ofull the Departments of the Government. He told his
friends who were exerting themselves in this, to go on, God
speed them! He would not hinder them ; he could not tell
whether le> would vote tor a measure they might get up?
that would depend on its form und principles ; if they admit?
ted he would aid them by his vote to establish such an agency.
M. Rivfc*. answered sercatem the Senator from Kentucky,
and wont into a full, clear and forcible defence of the Presi?
dent, who had aetvd in conformity with his known and open?
ly avowed, and always consistent principles, from a doubt of
it* Constitutionality. As to letting the bill lie over teu dnv*
?this course of a back-door retreat, and escape from din per?
formance of duty, was not consistent with the promptness and
rectitude of a noble Virginia spirit. The President had not
been elected by Congress, as by the Legislature of Virginia,
when not being able to comply with their instructions, he
took tho patriotic and rnaoly course of resigning his seat
in the Senate of the I'nited Stale*; but was elected by the
people, and the question ofu Bank of tho United S?ite* )m*
not bem decided bv the people, bur that issue has been
shrunk from. He believed that the Sub-Treasury, thw pet
bank system, the old fashioned United States Bank, and now
the new ?? Fiscal" Bank having failed, some plan of regula?
ting the currency should be devised?not a* a party measure,
but one in which the country might uxite. It should 1?- cur?
ried to the people, and their will, and the experience of prac?
tical men should be brought to aid. They should pass the
other measures of the session, and return to their constitu?
ents. They could not arrange a firm und permanent financial
j system at thecloso of the session, and at a period w hen more
j diversity of opinion than ever before existed on the subject,
without further deliberation and consultation of the people.
Mr. Clat replied, expressing hi* surprise at tin* latter
view of the Senator, and hi* desire that they should give to
the people before they adjourned, what they were crying for,
, above every thing else, a financial system for their relief.?
'. He replied with much excitement to wt.ner arguments of Mr.
, Riv ks, anil at times with profound elixpier.ee. Hi.* remark*
1 elicited a rejoindei from Mr. Rives, in bis accustomed abil?
ity and eloquence. A conversation arose between Messrs.
archer and Clat, which was of much interest, and of
! which, as of the preceding, not even an outline is hen: given.
The question was then taken, according to the Constitu
' tion, on the passage of the bill: it wa* lost by Yeas 25, Nays
I 24? twst-lhirds not qoting therefor.
In the morning hour, a resolution of Mr. Wrioh r, instruct?
ing an inquiry into the expediency of the appointment by the
President and Senate of eommi*.*ioned officers in the Reve?
nue Cutter service, was adopted.
The resolution of Mr. WooDBURT, instructing the Com?
mittee on the District of Columbia to inquire into the nature
! of disturbances in the galleries of the Senate, at the passage
: of the Bank Bill and the reading of the Veto Message, and
at the President's House the night of the Veto, and into the
proper measures for repressing similar distutbar.ee* in fu?
ture, was discussed briefly, and laid over to the next Session
; s( Congress.
The Disirib'-itiaa Bill wa* taken up and an amendment of
Mr. BtNToN to give the new States 12? instead of 10 per
, cent, on the sales of ihe lands, and one of Mr. Clat of Ala.
to reduce after a certain time the prices of the lands to one
dollar, and then, to seventy-five cents per acre, were rejected.
j In the Hou??, th? amendments of the Senate to theForti
fiauion bill were taken up in Committee of the Whole, and
after some consideration, several being disagreed to in Com
? mittee, the bill wa* reported to the House, and it tbeu ad?
