It is Ascertained tbAt after paying the appropriation In
the Deficiency bill, there still remains In the treasury, to
thia date, sixteen millions throe hundred thousand
dollars. After all the dispute about the mileage Amend
ment to the Deficiency-bill. insisted upon by the Senate,
and after some opposition concurred in by the House, it
turns ont that the Committee on Enrolled Bills negleoted
to have it engrossed Aud Mr Speaker Boyd And the Pre
sident of the SeoAte signed the bill without it; and, with
this omls< ion, it was sent to the President, who. of
course. made it a law. Mr Secretary Dickens walked
up to the Treasury Department yesterday to get the fifty
thousand, when to his astonishment, it was announced
the approptiation was no- in tbe bill. To remedy the
negligence, tbe Senate have inserted the mileage amend
ment in the Military Appropriation bill, and the bellige
rent debate yesterday makes it appropriate, no doubt.

The subject was postponed till Wednesday next.
On the motion of Mr. Bmscll. the limine took up'the
bill to enable the Executive to famish the citizens on the
frontiers with arms to protect thein?eivns agalnH the In
diana. The Senate returned the bUl with ameadmmts,
one of them proponing to include Utah in the distribu
tion of arms; and another authorising the President,
when be may con <eiv? it uncwrir;. to call into service
500 mounted l'exaus for the defence of th? Toxan fron
tier, and the saute number of men from California, to
serve for one year ?the amendments making provision
for thrlr pay. fee
Mr. Stanlv did not rise to throw any embarrawm^n
in the way ot" the bill, but to call attention to the fao
that the economical Senate, by their amendments, pro
pohed to add a milliuu of dollars a year to tbe expand!
lures That body could not find time to pass a river and
harbor bill although a ui it lion of dollars and a hundrel
liv? s may be loot by it single sung in one of our rivers; but
let an Indian kill a wtmo roan and forthwith a large
foice is authorized In a month or twu from this time,
an outcry will lie made about Indian devastations; a
ft- w public meetings will be held, and the mounted troops
called out. Then th<*r? will be a demand of a million of
dollars to supply the deficiency; and the administration,
lor the time being, will be held responsible.
Mr. Bissell said it was unqueMionably tho duty of the
povertuDeut to protect tbe people on the frontiers, and
asked the gentleman to suggest a better mode of defenoe
than that proposed by tbe bill
Mr Stanly replied ?Increase the army, and thonwe
will know what the expense is
Mr Bissell ? lias the gentleman any confidence in
tbe Executive ?
Mr. Stanly. ? A great deal more than you have.
Mr Bissell? I have oonttdenoe. oven In the present
Executive, and would trust him I do not believe he
would order out the troop* unless it should be necessary.
I have tbe best possible assurance that Frank Pierce will
not act differently . 1 do not think there is muck proba
bility that any body else will have the opportunity daring
tbe next four years. Mr. Bissell then argnod in favor of
tho Senate's amendment, claiming that the foroe pro
posed was cheaper and more efficient than regular troops.
Mr. 1I?ward followed on the same side, saying that the
treaty with Mexloo has been totally neglocted. and In
consoquenoe oi this neglnet a largo amount of claims will
be preeen ed here for payment.
Several other gen Uemen spoke for and against the im

length been sent from the Senate, and referred, by
the Boom of Representatives, to the Committee on
Commerce, and will probably be reported upon

By this bill, it ia provided that no oolleotor shall
grant a register or lioense to any vessel propelled
by steam, which shall not have oompUed with its
requirements; and any vessel contravening its pro
visions, shall bo subjcct to all the penalties of the
?eoond section of a former act, of whioh this is an
amendment. It directs that inspectors shall be ap
pointed to examine steam vessels before receiving a
| register, and twioe a year afterwards, who shall see
that proper precautions have been adopted to pre
vent accidents from flro or othorwise.
It also provides that steam vessels shall have a
certain number of forcing pumps and a proper sup
ply of hooe; and that every vessel carrying pas
sengers shall have two boat* ? one a metallio life
boat, capable of carrying fifty passengers. She mus

oue hundred dollars for each offence.
1'ilots and engineers aro to be designated by a
Board of Trade, or Chamber of Commerce, in cer
tain enumerated ports, who shall be of good charac
ter, and suitable abilities. Steam vessels, besides
guago cocks, are to be providod with alloyed me
tals, to bo placed on the outside flues, whioh
will be fusible by the heat of the boiler when
the steam is raised ton pounds beyond the autho
rized working pressure. The inspectors are to assume
the hydrostatic pressure on high-pressure boilers,
at one hundred and ten pound* to tne square inch,
that being the maximum pressure allowed as work
ing power, for a new boiler of forty* two inches ia
diameter; and on all other boilers, whether old or
new, according to this standard.
In low- pressure boilers, the inspectors are to as
sume fifty pounds pressure to tho square inch, as tha
maximum working power in new boilers ^and in ail
othor boilers, whether old or new, according to this
standard; and no valve is to be loaded, or so ma
naged as to subject the boiler to a greater pressure.
Any pilot or engineer acting without a license,
is to forfeit one hundred dollars for eaoh offence,
unless in case of acoident on the passage; and the
Board of Inspectors, constituted under this law,
may summon witnosses, and examine them on oath,
touching the performanoe of their duty by pilots,
who are to report to the chief officer of customs.
It is declared unlawful to take on board a steamer
a grcator number of passengers than are permitted
by the inspector's certificate; the master so offend
ing to forfeit the passage money, and ten dollars for
each passenger; nor can craft or barges bo taken
in tow without the consent of the passengers. Any
master who shall load or obstrruot the machinery,
or interfere with the safety-valve, to produce extra
pressure, is to forfeit two hundred dollars, and be
imprisoned not exceeding eighteen months.
In ease of a deficiency of water, unless from inevi
table acoident, or if it be suffered to fall below a
designated point, the master engineer, and other
persona whose duty it is to keep a supply of water,
are to be fined one hundred dollars; ana if an acci
dent should happen in consequence, sball bo im
prisoned not less than six nor exceeding eighteen
months. All boilers that are hereafter oonstruoted,
shall bemade of plates that have been inapeoted and
marked of one-fourth of an inch in thickness for a
boiler of forty- two inches diameter, and in that pro
portion for those of a greater or less diameter, and
of best wrought iron? five oents to be paid for in
specting ana marking eaoh plate. Any person using
iron that has not been so inspected in the construction
of boilers, to forfeit five aundred dollars for eaoh
offenoe, and be imprisoned two years; and if using
the marks of others, to be answerable for all the
damage accruing therefrom.
The President of the United States is authorised
to appoint a board of nine supervising inspeotors,
eaoh of whom is to receive fifteen hundred dollars
Cr annum, with reasonable travelling expenses, t>
paid from the treasurv of the United States? a <
are the inspectors of boiler iron; and when a super
vising inspector ascertains that any master or en
gineer has failod in tho performance of his duty, he
is to report the same to tne board of his distriot: or,
if he deem it nocessary, to prosecute the offending
Bies; and the board are to report auch future to
Secretary of the Treasury, who ia to-inveatigate
the same.
It is made the duty of the collectors of oustoms to
report the names of pilots and engineers who have
been rejected or appointed, who are also to enforce
the law, and, neglecting to doao, are to be removed
from offioe, ana arc also subjeoted to a penalty of
one hundred dollars. They are to furnian the cap
tain of a steam vessel with two copies of the inspec
tor's certificate, to be placed in a conspicuous place
on board stieb vessel: and any person carrying pas
sengers without such certificate, or oombuitihlo or
explosive materials without license, shall forfeit
one hundred dollars for everv offenoe; and any in
spector who shall certify falsely is to be fined five
hundred dollars, or suffer imprisonment not oxcoed
six months.
If the hull and machinery of a steam vessel are
not conformable to the inspector's certificate, the
maater or oooumandcr ia to forfeit a sum not exceed
ing one hundred dollars, or to be imprisoned two
months. The act provides for steamboats meeting
on rivers, and in case of fog, derangemont of ma
chinery, or stress of wcathor; and owners and ves
sels are liable for injury to persons and property for
tbe full amount of damage su.-tained.
The following sums aro to bo piiil annually to

that Mr. Webster is determined not to meddle with
the aotion of his friends. Indeed, I am credibly
informed, by one who was present, that immedi
ately after his reoeption in Boston, a committee of
the leading whiss of this State callod upon Mr.
Webster, at the Revere House, and, in answer to
some inquiries in relation to the then existing state
of affairs in relation to himself, he said, "Gentlemen,
I am in the hands of my friends, and thus far I hare
no reason to find fault mth thoir treatment. What
you now do, I shall not uado "
It ia evident that Mr. Webster is in a tight place.
Stie movement of Mr. Webster's friends. Tod koff by
on. Rufus Choate, alluded to in my last letter to
the Hxkald, ha* been somewhat doubted by cer
tain papers here in Massachusetts; but you will ob
serve that Mr. Webster's favorite organs hora, the
Bet and Couritr, have maintained a careful sileno <
on the subject. The movement is still progressing,
and will be more sealously pushed after the great
fish Question of Nahant, Marshfield, and the lUy of
Funqy is settled by the two ministon. Mr. Webster,
accompanied by Mr. Crampton, will return to their
quarters at the Itovore, to-morrow morning, ami
will then proceed together by the middle train to
Duxbury, should no unforeseen circumstance ocour
to prevent.

The temperance host, under the leadership of ex

that the executive force are determined to apply for

Tho first case will undoubtedly be carried to the

That Mr. Lawrenoe will return home in the au
tumn is positively affirmed by his friends hore. The
idea now is te run him for Governor as tho Soott
whig candidate, if Mr. Winthrop can bo civilly
dropped. Mr. Lawrenee is the ohief of the anti
Webster whigs, and hates their leader with great
bittorncss. Ho is accused of having boon at the
bottom of all those movements that have boon
directed against Mr. Webster's nomination in Now
England? with corresponding with George Evans
and other men, who vowed that Mr. Webster should
never be made even tho whig nominee, muoh loss
President of the United States. "There's a good
time coming" for theso who love rows ? the iron
age of politieal fighting.
General Wilson has published a letter of nine
oolumns, to Dr. Bell, in which ho gives a detailed
history of the oonduet of the Massachusetts whigs
on the slavery question during the last nineteen
years. It is a pungent affair, and valuablo from
the vast number of mots which it contains that bear
upon tho political history of our State. It is noto
rious that not so much as one of his statements
have been called in question.
Tho Van Buren and Willis " pistol and coffee"
correspondence excites some comments, mostly of a
ludicrous cost. Mr. Willis ought to know that
duelling is an aristocratic luxury ? that tho privi
lege of being phot through the head, by way o ''
satisfaction for injuries reoeived, belongs to patri
cians alone ? to men who have " blood" in every
sense. Mr. Van Iturcn's conduct toward Mr. Willis
is not to be wholly justified, but how it is to be
bettered by allowing Mr. Van Buren the chance of
shooting him, I do not cxactljr see.
The late destructive fire is beginning to open peo
ple's eyes to the noeessity of having some reform in
our oity government. It is not saying too much to
assert, that had tho firo department bocn what it
ought to be, the loss that was sust tinod on the 10th
instant, would have been lessened by at least throe
fourths. JThe firo broko out at a period of tho day
when cevry one is about ; the alarm was promptly
given ; water was abundant, and easily obtained ;
yet almost three- score buildings were destroyed,
and six hundred people made housoloss. All this is
attributed to the inefficiency of the fire department,
and that inefficiency is the oonsequonce or the un
wiso action of tho municipal authorities, who de
stroyed an admirable organization, substituting for
it something that is of no value, which can combat
with ordinary difficulties, but is not equal to great
emergencies Tho Tremont theatre was lost through
this want of skill on tho part of tho firemen. Had
they been what they should Lave been, a thousand
dollars would have covered the whole damage on
that occasion. The cause of all this is tho desire on
the part of small men to havo the fire depart
ment more under their control, and nn opportu
nity to raise the taxos. But what the oity saves in
cents, the citixens lose in dollars. The rates of in
surance havo been greatly increased, and tons of
thousands of dollars worth of property have been
destroyed, which might as well have beon in exis
tence as not. The old department had its faults,
but it had this great merit, namely, It answered tho
end of its boing, which the preseut doos not. The
alarm of firo now creates a sensation, wheroasitused
to be takon as eoollj by the people as by the fire
men themselves. The only hope for such a change,
is founded on the cbanoc that thoro is to much dis
content abroad, that the city government must go
into ether hands. Ex-Marshal Tnkey is talked of
us a sort of Union onndidate for Mayor.- He cer
tainly will make an offieient chief magistrate, bat
the liquor dealers aie afraid that ho would be alto
