HoRttinLi;. This morning, as a negro man was
leading two chained bears through I he court-yard
of tho Mississippi Hotel, kept in this place by Mr
Parker a Mulatto woman troni the kitchen, impru
dently took her little boy out to sec the animals,
aud allowed him logo near them. One of the '
bears instaiitl) ecircd the child iu his paws, j
(sinking hia claws into the child's abdotneuj threw ;
him on the ground, and began, with frightful avidi- j
ty to feed upon hi carcass. Tho shrieks of the
ramie mother, who, truo to nature, had thrown
herself upon tho prosttate body of her child, and
waa vainly striving to unclasp tho murderous jaw
-of the beast, brought in a moment to the spot, tho stood, but tho acts of tho wholo of tho Depart
kecier of tho Hotel and a number of gentlemen, i incuts. I it possible, eir, that the gentleman

dentially, the other bear waa instigated, probably
by the (mcl of the fresh wounds, to contest the
bauqnet, a battle ensued between them, which al
forded an opportunity of snatching away the child,
and also, diverted thetn both from a fresh attack
on anj one ele. At this instant fire arms were
brought,and two or three) deadly aim incapaciutcd
fach of them for further mischief. Dr. Dashiell
was called to the child and promptly dressed his
pounds. He will probably recover, but a lesson
ha been taught to Ins mother, and to ell mothers,
of the criminal folly of leading their children into

REMARKS OF MR. WISE OP VIRGINIA.
In Ike House of Representatives on 'lurcday.
Mr. WISE taid, that he was utterly opposed lo
this resolution un tho score of economy, but in
another and much more important point of view,
audi a resolution was actually nbhorrcnt to the
principles of our (internment, and to tho indepen
dence of tho legislation of tills House. Sir, in
stead of being what wo arc by tho Constitution,
an independent branch of the National Legisla
ture, this resolution would resolve ua into a jiiini;
committi::: lo npuit proctedmgs f the Legislative
dijiartment to the Ilrttvtice! Gentlemen may not
intend cued an effect, but this resolution does, in
rrmbtanct and imubtlitnee, rreognhe a responsibili
ty on the part of this House to the Exccuthc for
its legislative acta and proceedings. What, Sir!
'has it conic to this, that wo shall datlu carry to
the foot of the thron a report of our proceedings.
I in order to show not to the President, but to his
very underling? "thus far have wo cone." iu or
der that they may say, "thus far shalt thou go and
no farther!" Tho Exccutivo Department, sir, in
termeddles already too much with tho performance
of our legislative duties and functions, nnd I do
solemnly proWst against resolving upon thia writ
ten invitation to superintend and interfere with our
action here, more than it has already done. I
wish to prcscrvo our own independence and the
checks nnd balances of our Government.
Hero Mr. A.ntiiunv (of Pn.) made some re
marks, which ho concluded by saying that "the
Kitcuttve Departments hid a right to know what
tec irere doing in this lhute.
Mr. WISE again rose and said, that he was as
tonished to hear such a right admitted or claimed
for the Executive on that floor. Ho would only
ul Ij.u Mltoutitm uf ll,o Uwuoo anil tllll COUIllry 10
thU claim for tho Exccutivo m n right !
Mr. JOHNSON of Kentucky, in reply to the
gentleman from Virginia, challenged him to put
his finger upon any one net of Executive usurpa
tion ; remarking ut tho same time, that it was
easy to deal in general denunciations and de
clarations, but more difficult to support them by
facta. lie, Mr. J. looked lo the voico of the peo
ple as his guide, and he doubted not that the Pres
ident did. The President had been supporleJ, in
sll his acts, by a largo mnjorily of the cople, and
could, therefore, with more reason, complain of
the course of the gentleman, than the gentleman
could of his.
Mr. WISE said, in rejoinder, that tho gentle
man from Kentucky (Col. Joii.nso.n) had called up
un him lo do that which it was the easiest thing
imaginable to do. He would givo him arid tho
country tho information asked for with tho "rcatest
pleasure ; wag happy to have tho opportunity to
give the gentleman a satisfactory and direct reply,
and wus ready and willing to put his finger upon
some acts of Executive intcrlcrenco with the Ice
islatinn of that House, When 1 speak, however,
of Executive inlefercnce, I do not mean tho nets
of the President alone, and let mc be en under-
made ? Why, sir, the gentleman trips ! Not
specify acts of Exccutivo interference! Surely
the gentleman knows that the Constitution makes
it the duty of the President to communicate to
Congress, by his Message, his, tho Executive's
views, of all our relations, and on all subjects of
legislation. He is constitutionally bound to givo
j officially hia opinion on what wo should do and
should not do as legislators.
Hut let not tho gentleman understand mc as
pointing to this constitutional duty ns one of the
specifications of Executive interferenee. To send
us his message is no act of intcrmedling it is an
act of duty and obligation. Sir, I doinot intend
to evade the gentleman's call. I never will evade
I any responsibility on any occasion
I allut'c to
this constitutional duty, to contrsst it expressly
with other acts A-hich the President's or tha Ev
cculivo'a duty forbids. I allude to it for the pur
pose of reminding tho gentleman that the Consti
tution fixes the measure and mode of Executive in
terposition in acts of legislation. The Constitu
tion intends that the President shall, by a public
message, call our attention to all subject of legis
lative action, and that then tho Executive functions
shill cease until we have performed our acts, and
referred them to him fur his constitutional sanction
or veto. And the Constitution intends, most cau
j i.ou.ly ind jealously intends, that whilst discussing,
whilst deciding upon laws to be passed or rejected,
e shall bo Tree and independent of Executive in
fluence. And now. sir, what I havo said, meant
to say, and mean to repeat, is, that wo aro nof
tbu free and independent, thai the Executive doe
Intermeddle, improperly, dangerously and frequently
with our legislative action! The gentleman asks
for me to point to the instances, and I will specify

with a subject of most serious nomcnt. I will

important Executive acts whieh ever agitated this
country or affected its interests. On nd other
question than the great Dupositc Question oT last
session. J enly believe nnd hao rcaxon to. know
I would, if required, make oath in mipportof tho
opinion that tho majority of tho Houeo una de
cidedly against the act of tho President, in reason,
conviction and conscience. lint, sir, tin true
sense of tho Commons waa stifled. Tho Speaker
of the Houso was kept in that chair, (poinling to
the Snccakcr'a Chair, with on Executive promise)
in his pocket until the work of the master was fin-1
ished. There sat tho Speaker, like a caiiecr on
the body politic, which ramified its roots to moro
than two or three, or two or three lzcn seats on
this floor ! There were no lees than lour Chairmen
of tho principal Standing Committed villi their eyes
of aspiration fixed upon that high plnce, each long
ing to b". successor In tho incumbent; and besides
these, there was another condiduto, also on nn im
portant committee. To say nothing of tho sub
ordinates on theso .committee, who no doubt were
sumo of them willing to havo- their chairmen re
spectively elected Speaker, lo create i fair vacancy
for themselves, it is surely moderate in calculation I
to say that each of thoso fivo candidates had at
least a half dozen of zealous friends tlioy wore
poor indeed if they had not. Each candidate
looked to what is here called "Jdminittration
vote;," a term which imports Executive inlerfu
roncc, by the by lo elect him, and according to
my arithmetic, sir, the fivo candidates with their
six friends each, made thirty-fi'vo voles, that ac
cording to the worth of tho priro .if Hcnknr'a
chair, wcro morally certain to bo "Administration
votes." Less than one thi'd of that number of j
voles would, if changed from one sido to tho other, j
hove changod tho vote of tho House on that vital
question ; and I presume that no one here, who
sees and knows what wo all tee nnd know, can i
doubt thot these thirty.fivo votes taken as the least
possible ntimuer lo ue auecicu, were noi iniiuenccu (
uy, out icit tree anu imicpcnucm oi I'.xecutivu in

Minister to England and the Speaker of tho House
of Representatives, tho one Exccutivo. the other
legislative o;io of whom the President appoints,
and the other ho doos nof actually appoint the
President, I suppose, was not enabled lo command
a majority on this floor! What may not our Pres
ident do in legislation when ho has our Speaker
for his tool ! So much for Specifications, by
which let it be understood, I do not intend to be
involved in any personalities.
The gentleman says that ho "looks to tho voico
of the people !'' Ay, sir, and so do I, and so do
we all. Tho time is now short in duo time, sir
yet a little whilo longer, and that voico shall
come up to ua and to high places, in tones of thun
der. Tho gentleman says thst I have denounced the
President. Denounced the President! I deny it,
sir. Twice have I supported '.he President for his
office, with a zeal, if not ability, which might ex
ert itself equally ardent again, under the same cir
cumstances. But, sir, not for the President, nor
myself, will I conceal facts and truths from the peo
ple, when they are so pointedly called for by both
the ecntlomon and tho cood of the country. Has
it come to ibis, that political truth dare not bo told .
lost the President bo denounced 1 Yes, sir, there I
is a nartv which makes the President "a scape
goat" for its rins, and which always take shelter
under his great name. There are tnosc who, H
their acts ho denounced, always raise the cry of
"denunciatinn against tho President," who has as
much reason as any man I know of, to pray God
to savo him from some of his frienda ! Why
should I denounce tho President in the discussion
of this question 1 He does not I hope, call for this
resolution. For the country's sake, I hope ho does
not desire this debasing obsequiousness from IIob
House. No patriot can ask that ono department
of Government shall humble itself to another.
Sir, I hopo that the gentleman himself, if ho ap.
prehonded what I do from thia resolution, would
' . . . . . . . . i.
withdraw it and spurn it. I have that respect foi
him to believe he knows that I am personally his
friend that if he foresaw the effects which I
think I forc-ce from this, hia measure, so humiliat
ing to this Huuse, he would abandon it at once.
Out, sir, I must say, not, however, in allusion to
this instance, that there are loo many voluntary
and gratuitous offerings of feslty and flattery made
to Ihc President, which must nauseate him who ia
attempted to be flattered by them, which gall the
spirits of freemen attached to him, and which tin
ptir tho spirit of free institutions to which thoro
freemen arc still more attached. Sir, the under
lings always transcend, infinitely trantcend tho ut

"llelorc entering upon questions ol more liinnc-
diate interest to
us, as citizens of this Slnlo, I
would desire it distinctly lo bo understood, that I
possess a proper estimate of the importation of
Pennsylvania, both as Statu and as a member
of the great national family. While thu rights
and feelings of every part of the Union will be
scrupulously respected, and its perpetuation and
honor cordially promoted, I shall nut consent to
sacrifice her interests to propitiate power, or con
ciliate favor in any quarter, howevo high and influ
ential. "Among subjects of Stato policy, there is ono of
moot prominent interest. 1 ho great system of In
icrnal Improvement ; in which we have been for
years engaged, lias encumbored tho resources, and
dcratigcd the finances of the Commonweulth; pro
duccd now but ns yet nearly untried channels for
business, and springs to privato cntcrpriso; and
materially affected the occupations and interests of
I he people. Tho cares and duties of theso who
administer, tho Legislative nnd Executive Dupurt
incnts of the Government, nro in tl.o same propor
tion Increased. Sound policy demands, that oper
ations which have thus shaken the old order of
things, nnd that public works which havo cost so
much, should as speedily as possible, bo inudo to
answer the creat object for which thoy wero origi.
inally designed the public good. To acnpiish
it, the must vigorous measures and tho mot rigid
economy oro absolutely necessary, and will bo en-
forced. Every exertion will bo mado to imvo un-
orgy and certainty to a system which, as yet, has
exhibited little more than a doubtful promiso uf util
ity commensurate with tho sacrifices madu fur its
accomplishment.
Thu maintenance of a sound currency is one of
the most difficult but indispensable duties of those
who administer tho government, in a community
possessing such various interests as that to which
wc belong. Convenience, ami that onsidoration
alone, has caused ths substitution of paper money
for specie. The idea that money was tn be madu
by speculating on the inconvcnicnco of a metallic
currency, or that paper money wus to bo created,
merely to enable a lew to realize largo sums by
turning the net of its creation lo their own account,
never entered the minds of those, who first adopted
this useful and valuable expedient. Thoir object
was tho attainment of a rcproscntalivo possessing
all tho utility nnd value, without any of tho incon
venience of the thing represented. In this point of
view the increase of the substitute beyond tho ac
tual value and amount of its principal, is a fraud
upon thu public. Tho man who takes it in pay
ment lor his labor, hiv goods, or his land, is cheat
ed. My object will, therefore, bo.on the ono hand,
to confine, as far as in mo lies, the amount of pa
per mosey within iho bounds just stated, while on
thu other, public accommodation and the demands
of business will bo consulted.
Tho supremacy of the Laws and the equal rights
I of the people, whether threatened or assailed by
i individual, or uy secret, sworn associauons, i
I shall so far as may be compatible with tho consti-
! tulional power of tho Executive, endeavor lo main
tain, as well in compliance with the known will ot
(ho people, as from obligations of duty to tho Com
monwealth. In these endeavors I shall entertain
no doubt of zealous co-operation by Ihc enlighten
ed and patriotic Legislature of thu Slate. Thu
people have willed thu destruction of all secret
societies, and that will cannot bu disregarded.
In the attempt to render tho power of the Laifs

In a community poincssing a criminal codo so
proverbially mild, and a mode of trial so fair and
open, as that lo which wc belong, the pardoning
power should be rarely and with extreme caution
intorpoked. I trust I shall bo enabled, in the uo
of it, to listen only to tho demands of public jus
tice and the general good. No consideration ari
sing from feelings of mere pity, or from respect
of person or station, shall influence my conduct.
