On mnlion of Mr Harlan, the House look up the -report relative to the office oi Slate Printer The question being on the adoption of the following resolution appended to the report : Resolved, That the committee on the Judiciary be instructed lo report a bill to Croats tierrrianenllv iho ollien of Stitr Printer, providing for an election lo fill ' said office during the present session. Mr Creed said, ho was not now prepa red to vote on this q lestion. From the short tune I lie report had been before the House, he was not qualified (o vole for or against the resolution. What bis views might be, when he had examined it, he knew not. lie would be glad if it might lie on the table. As the legislative fuiic linns ol the gentleman from Clinton. (Mr Harlan would this day cease, he Imped all iho nrgiirnent which that gentiem in had to off :r, might now be presented lo the House, and the resolution ihnn be permit ted lo rest fur ii time. There were many things connected with this subject which required lime (or n proper Inves ligation He was perfectly willing to listen 10 whatever aigoments migiit be presented to iho consideration ol ihe House Mr Harlan said, thegnt!pman from Fairfield (Mr Creed.) was excelling ly kind in prol'essing his readiness to listen to Hhat he had to say. lie would be the last to urge any one to vole on the question, unl"ss he wa-s prepared to vote understani!ing1y. since it was agrei d on all hands that this was a subject of importance, lie knew not thai he had another argu ment to drier or reason In advance other than those contained in ihe re port. Nor should heat (bo ginlle man's s ' si ion arrogate to himself the du'y of di fending the rep)rt. Me was perfectly satifi-d io leave that to lb- qlher members of the rominiltci who mado i h e report But ho calKl upon gentlemen to rnet the question lairly, and say whether or nut there was in existence a law creating tin oflbe of Printer to the S ate of Ohio, ll'ihey had not ex imineil the s u j c i satisfactorily he would b4 on3 of jibe fiist to giant furl her lime. Hut inrs much as ihe subject was agitated al Ihe last session and had be en (luting j the present, he bad supposed that ev cry member was lully prepared to say w hethtr nrh a law did or did not. ex'st. This was no new question; it had not sprung up as unlooked forj'ii had been in agitation ever since the iiresi nl incumbent had ben acting in the capacity of Printer for the Legis lature. There was nothing in Ihe report so tomplex, lhat it did nol strike the understanding of every one at the first glance, He thought ii an finqecMinry, an unjust requisition, to isk to lay it on the labl". Mr lioslwick as one nf the commit t'C would make a few remarks. He said there s emed to be a disposition io force this resolution through the House, without giving lime for discus sion. Much had been said about the courtesy due to the gentleman who was to vacate his sea'. Were not others entitled to courtesy as well as he? The other member of the minor ity, (Mr Gushing.) was nosv indispo sed and had no oppoiiuni'y of being heard en this subject was he deser ving of no com lest ? If ihe gentle man who presented the reporl could nol hereafter be present, others of the same cou niittee wire here fully com petent to advocate iis merits He had not had lime to prepare a counter report. Ho supposed he should be forced lo i vole on litis question. Mr Harlsn signified his willingness to postpone for the present the action of the Mouse on the resolution, when ihe report was laid on the table.

Mr Patterson moved its recommit ment to the Judiciary committee. Mr Medilljlh-ought it noi the usual course lo refer bills emanating from one standing committee to anolher. The -bill came from the committee on Umk-s, whose members as to eompe (eney and a proper understanding of the subj ect, were certainly equal lo any in ihe House. The motion to recommit was lost. A motion of Mr Coulter to lay the bill on ihe table wjs disagreed to. Mr Medill stated his sentiments at length in relation lo the prii.ciples contained in the bill- There seemed 10 be no itiest;oa as to the propriety 011 he measure proposed lo be fleeted by the hill. The only q istion was, as to the r i s1i I of ihe legisla'tine in ihe case-. Hut the bill did not raise the question of vested rUh'Si Banks were permitted lo issue notes of what le nominsiion their charters did not de- elare, those Tinder one dollar were ex firessly prohibited; by construction, tl was contended that what was not pro hibited, was framed, anil consequent ly thai this would be depriving Hies? corporations of their vested rights; hut all corporations received their charlers subject to those restrictions and mod ificalions whic'i subserve ihe pdblie good. Private property is always subservient lo the public welfare, was that of corpora1 ions mor ss-red lhat it could not be touched? Were these rights more vested than Hiosero properly which a man irquirei by bis labor, or inherits from his ancestors, and which are puirsntcd to him bv the laws of bis country; yet a law could he made to lake away ihis prep erty, and use his labor, amj we can not sy gentlemen, touch ihese rigbls which we have granted to corpora lions. After the argument was continued for some limp, Mr Pallerson replied He hoped no course won hi he taken, calculated I o bring Ihe legislative authority in,o disrepute, lie was in favor of ascer taining the rights ef both patties, of having even banded justice lone. Mr Lowry moved to s:iilta out that portion of the bill which prohibit! after ihe yar 1S37, the circulation of hills of any denomination In I ween five and ten dollars-: which was disagreed lo.

Wilh feelings of joy and grstilude, which we wish every one of our rea d' is may be in the mood to partake wilh us; we slate our belief that the dispute between tho United Slates and France may be considered as essential ly adjusted. Information is said to have been re ceived by the Administration that (he King of the French has signified his readiness to direct the payment of the instalments due under tho Treaty of July 4, 1831, withoot walling for the result of lha Mediation considering lite provisions of the act of the Cham bers satisfied by the terms of the An nual Mesaageof the President lo Con Stress. CoseiHrent information through tl)e medium of Letters received by commercial men in oar cities from the house ofBaron Rothschild in London make it certain that the Government of France had notified that of England that it was now ready to fulfil all the conditions of the Treaty, without fur ther delay. In the favorable turn this great af fair has taken, on r best hopes aTe ful filled, and odr most agreeable snlicipa lions realized. Speaking of the late Annual Message, we ssid; on the 12th of Dicembar "We luve already re ferreil to its disavowals, ol offensive intention towards Fra nee in last years Message, as being ample; entirely suf ficient unless so far as the point of them may be supposed to be blunted by ihe new matter introduced in con nexion with them. Wc rejoice in the hone that the disclaimers by the Presi ilent will not only be received by the Govei ment of France as satisfactory evidence that no offence was intended in the last Message, but will serve, at the same lime, for a rule of interpre tation of whatever might otherwise ap lipar to be offensive in this. We are sanguine iu the hope that this will be the course of things, iftime be al'ow ed for the Message to operate at Far is." What we then hoped has, to the very 'elite, ceroa lo pass. II any doubt was left by thegeiK'i-al tenor ol the unofficial communications from Paris and Loudon on the subject, it would be entirely remov ed bv (he commentaries on the Message by tha Freni It journals known to be in iho confidence of the French Ministry.

General Jackson is obliged lo hu inour the passions und prepidices of the democracy which raised him W the prcs tdency, in the aame way as the innistcrs of the King of ihe French are tinder the necessity of sacrificing their individual feelings to tha parliamentary majority by' whom Ihey were mado ministers.

It is true thai General Jackson absolule ly refuses to make, under u certian form, Ihi reparation demanded by tho French Government, alleging it lo be Ins convic tion lhat such reparation would be incon sistent wuhihe American Constitution, and with the independence and govern ment of the People ol America, uut it has not appeared that the French Govern ment had oven pointed out ihopariiuulai form of reparation, and at all events, il is of little consequence.
