PUIII.tC LANDS. Mr Clay late, and ssid, that tlthongh worn down by private affliction, he had not thought him self auihoriwd to din'gard thepetfurmsiicc of his public duty. And m porsuanco of the notice giv en by hie cllea;c yctterdsy, he now atked leave toinir.Hlneea bill, to dittribato a portion of the procee-dt aritine from the rle of public hndt, and to further dittnbuto tuch other portions, as had been dieted for isle, tnd were no unsold amongst the tevorsl ttatrt of tho Union. It was righl.thal introducing a metture of thi high charactor, he thtftiW aceompiny it by jomc explanation, The bill prupoics t" diitnbute the proceed that hid accrued and were to accrue, in the year 1833, 31, 35, 30 and 37, and confurmt tubitantially to the bill which had been offered by h'nn in 1832 It provide in tho firtt place, to allow 10 per ct among the teven new Ktatc, in addition to the 5 per cent already settled upon them hy coinpict. After deducting the 15 per cent, then, the rceiduc wntly be distributed nmung the Ul Stale, accor ding lo the fideral po illation. He should have been willing, according to iho ncl of 1832, to havo allowed the tuvvn new Slate 12 1 2 nor cent, but that proposition having been rejected by '.he Presi dent, he had thought it proper nuw tu restrict it to ten. The licit amount aruing from tho sale of public lands in 1833, vva $3,007,000 l831,to 4.857,000 And in 1835, taking tho three firm quarter, with an estimate, of the last, the amount would bo 12,222,000 Miking iu the aggregate, neuin nf S2l,.i0,000 for three years; and thi, ho proposed to distribute, and pay on the lirst of .May, 1837. So thnt deducting from 21,170,000 Tin proposed 15 per cent 2,012,000 Them would remain SI 8, '135,000 for distribution amongst all the Stutc3 of the Union. If the former bill hid not been arrested by the Kxceiitive, wo, now, should havo had a clean trua tury, and would not have to encounter the danger and contention, many und serious ns thoy are, apprehended from a reduced surpluH of revenue, lie behoved that this surplus would exceed the sum proposed to bo distributed, not considering tho en Umated proceed of the Secretary of tho Treasury in uo over, uui on me comrary, under those made by hi predecessor in ofllce. Iiut whether this would prove bo, or not, with the money to coino from the Ihnk of tho United Stales, viz : seven millions or eight million ns it may turn nut, mldotl to that rdinary resource, there could bo no doubt, that there would he ample Cumin after tho dWlribu tion, to meet nil the exigencies of tho government, provided they should bo regulated by a proper spir it of economy. At a proper time it would not be difficult to show, that cxcliieive of tho nmoiint ru ccivnhlc from tho sale of Public Laud?, there vvero other sources, which would bo sufficient for all the economical purposes of tho government in time of peace. And in time of war, tho bill makes full provision, that it operation shall cease, and that those fund shill be applied to tho vigurous proacculiun of thu war. To gusrd nninrt any misconception on another subject, ho desired lo state, that the bill was not predicated on tho sup position, that tho General Guvormucnt had tho right to levy taxe fur tho purposo of subsequent distribution. I lo believed that there was no such power, unless it should be given to it, by such on amendment being made to tho Constitution as was proposed by tho hunorablo Senator from South Car olina (.Mr. Calhoun. J Tho bill was founJed on a clear grant, given by tbo Constitution to tho Gen eral uoveriimetit.and wa also contained by exprcos stipulation in the deed by which tho public land had been ceded by tho several Stales. Tho General Government, who formerly lent meir aiu in onjeci oi improvement, vvcro now rc Irained ; yet the spirit of improvement, vvcro non found to pervade tho land. Tho Slates had assumed that duty, which iho gcporal government could no longer peiforiu. He would refer lo New York, ns having already accomplished a work, which was worthy of her greatness and resources. Pennvl- nnii, another still bolder in conception and more aruuous in execution, irgiuia had commencid one worthy of her enterprise, and a fourth work till farther South, fiad been projected, and would bo bcjompluhed by the aid which it was hi object to give by the prctenl bill. Ho desired, if they did nut give tbe States the aid, of which they vvcro in need, at least Irf give them what was their own. Tor, with tho distribution of tho land fund, iheie was no object that was desirable, that they inighl not accnmplith. With this cxhauslle fund, to the scvoral Kuu in the language of the llrit it'j bard, tbo head of the Federal Government nay addrett them, and I1U htrbort open, public wtyi fitt rhl.

Mr. C. hiving oblained leave lo Introduce the bill.it wai read twice, and on hi motion, was refer red to thu Committee on public lands, and ordered to be printed, .Mr Calhoun obtained Icivo to lntroduco the fol lowing t A resolution, proposing In amendment to tho Constitution if Iho United State, providing for a distribution of tho surplus revenue among Iho sev eral States aod Territories, until tho year 1843. A bill to regulate tho depositee of the public money. A bill to rcreal tho first and second sections of "an act to lim.t the term of oflico of certain officers therein named,' approved the 15th of May, 1620, and for other purpose. .Mr Calhouu also submitted J lie following. Rceolvud, That ihe Report of tho secretary of the Trcasuiy of iho 15lh instant, relative to the dutie that may bo repealed, he referred to thu Committee or? .Manufacture, with instruction tu report a bill providing for tho reduction or repeal of all Julie?, which in their opinion may bo reduced or rqiealcd, consistently with a due regard to Iho manifaclurin interest. .Mr. C. remarked that this subject wan necessa rily connected with the object he had in view in in trodir.ing the foregoing bill. He considered all tho oils of the present system of Government vvetcaltributahle to an unduo accumulation of Us rover ue, and owing to which, wa the wide march of coiruptiun and tubserviency to Kxccutivo influ ence, vhich overspread the country. With the im mense iuiii of thirty millions, which ho calculated would be deposited in Hanks under the Executive influence, it would be in vain and .mpotent for them tu op'tiso I'v'ecutivo usurpation. This was tho point oa which the battle vva to bo fought. All other measures must fall short until this accu mulation wis arrested. If those who opposed tho AdininistraLon would zealously unito to arrest it, then there vould be como hope of peace and fu ture prospenty ; because every dollar they throw back upon tho pcuplo would tend to strengthen tho hand of lihjrty and uuuervo the arm of corrup tion. Will tin view, he hoped tho Committee on Manufactures would take up Ihc subject early, and recommend not only tho repeal of lhoo article stated hy the Secretary of tho Treasury, hut also many otlicre, which he might havo overlooked. I bus thoy would best subserve the interest of tho mamif.icturer. Since every tax removed, cheap ened production and secured n homo market. Air.

IIo hop ed it was not tho Senator' intention tu proceed without iu cmidliloralion on tho Subject. .Mr. Calhoun, in reply, said tho whole subject would be with tho Committee. It was fur them tu state what vvero the article on which tho duty might be repealed. .Mr. Davie i!jireJ to have tho resolution laid on tho tablu for the present. Mr. Calhoun acceded to this. His object was simply to arrest having any surplus revenue. Ho luil accordingly that day submitted two proposi tions ; the first was to give back to tho people Unit which hod already been accumulated. This was to prevent having any in future. IIo agreed (o havo the resolution now laid on the table, upon tho understanding that tho Senator from Massachu setts would call it up to-morrow. The molion to lay on the table whs agreed to. The Senate vvure then occupied with Kxccutiv-0 husines until the adjournment. In tho Senate on Wednesday last, Mr. Davis called up the resolution of Mr. Calhoun, instruct ing thu Cominittco on Manufactures to report a bill to rcduco or repeal the duties. IIo stated that he had no objection to it passage, since in looking at the tenor of tho resolution, ho had becomo satis fied that it object was simply financial, and not so extensive in its scope as ho had at first view im agined. After somo remarks by Mr. Clay and Mr. Calhoun, the resolution was agreed to. Mr. Kuggles introduced a resolution to appoint a committee of three to examino the condition of tho Patent Office, and the lava connected with it. Mr. Porter offered a resolution to rescind tho new rule which prohibit the introduction of other than tho privileged persons on the floor of tho Senate. A bill to regulate tho dopoeites of tha public monny, in'.roduiiod br .Mr. Calhoun, and the resolu tion introduced by hun proposing an amendment of uiu tyonctiiutiou on the subject of the distribution of tho public revenue, passed the second reading. Mr. Ilen'.ou introduced a bill to provide for thu in crease of the corps of Topographical Knginter. A bill for the amendment of tho Judiciary system, was taken up, ond made tho special order of the day for Monday next. After a abort session on Executive- business, the Senato adjourned. In tho House nf Rcnrcsontativca. the resolution introduced by Mr. Ucardtley for Iho admission of vi r. i.rary, elected a Representative, for Michigan, to a seat on the floor, was so modified a to admit him to tho Iltll during the wiling of tho Hotfso as a spectator, and pasbed without opposition. no iiuutc proceeded to consider mo petitions of tho Hank of (ho District of Columbia, for an extension of their charters. Two motions were made for the disposition of these petition. The flnt to refer the subject lo tho Committee on the Dutrict of Columbia, and the other (mado by Mr. Thomas of Md,) to refer theso petition and all other relative lo tho Buiks in the District which might be presented during the tetsion, to a select Joint committee, with instructions to inquire Into the condition of ihe currency of the District of Colnrobit, o inspect the book aod examine into tho proceedings of fid IUnL. to asrcrUln vrhiilb. r ibeir ehirtert bar been violated or not, and whether any abuses or malpractices have existed in their management, and lo scud (or persons an J papers, to examine witnesses on oMh, and to ap point a Cletk lo record these ptocccdingr.

About n year since, 1 gavo you some nccount of the Business in this-city. l hs moda rind manner of slaughter end packing tha hog, tzc. That account, although marvellous by our Eastern and Northern friend?, who had never visited tho Weal, and consequently knew nothing of tho eulcrprisc of our citizens, was nevertheless strictly true. It vva thought, I am informed, by many of your read er, incredible, that a hog could bo knocked down, bled, scalded, scraped, strung up, and the inside dressing completed in littlo moro than a minuto still it is true that the avcrago time is less than a minute and a quarter Fifty hogs are "used up" as wo say in the West, in an hour from running in the yard, thoy aru within the hour suspended by their hind feet from the beams in ihc slaughter house, completely dressed. I stated in that letter, that nt ono of Mr Col man's slaughter houses, he had a man that usually opened, removed the offal, and completed the dres sing of three hogs in a minute this was strictly true, and tho same man, I understand, is doing the same thing this year, at the same slaughter house. Another htatcmciit in that letter, which hy somo was thought incorrect, was, that at one of those houses six hundred and fifty lings wero slaughter, cd, and completely dressed in ono day, and that Mr Coleman had slaughtered and dressed nt his four houseR.in a single day twenty six hundred say cloven hour work hy 100 men strango ns this may appear to any ono that has not witnessed the 'operation' of hog killing, (and I doubt not this whole story nppcars to such incredible.) It is ncv crthcless strictly true, without tho least exaggera tion it is also strictly correct, that at any of the largo Pork House, thoy can receive the hugs at tho slaughter house, (which is a different establish ment altogether, and conducted hy different men and different interests,) cut thrm up, assort tho i..oMl. park, l.riim. couper. and brand two Imiulie.l and fifty, lo three hundred barrel of Pork in one day, and havo it ready for shipment and at the same time, turn out two hundred keg of Lard. More hogs wero slaughtered and pucked last year, in the city, than during any one season boforo say 152,000, In the winter preceding the uumber wa 123,000. There arc tvvoemoko house, ono at each cud 40 hy 30 root each, in which three hundred thou sand pound of meat, can be smoked in each end, 20 feet square, and containing four large kettles in each for rendering lard, with n cellar under tho whole paved with brick. Tho building h hand somely finished, and rendered in every rcspcct.eou venient for the business. Hogs were purchased last yeai at $3 per hun dred pounds for those weighing on an average, 200 pounds. This year thoy are compelled to pay fur similar hogs 85 to 5 50 which will mako a differ ence in tho cost to the packer of a barrol of Mess Pork, over las', year of about five dollars so that Mess Pork will bo turned out at a cost of about fif teen dollars per barrel. Hug have never but onco before been sold at such high prices in this market. In the winter of 1633, '34, 83 75 vva paid on an nvcrnge for 200 weight hog Last year, in this city alone, (as I have before remarked) 152,000 hogs vvcro slaughtered and packed, and largely increased quantitie nt llainil ton, Rossvillo Franklin, Middloton, Dayton, I.avv rnncohurch. fcc. This year, I am informed that CO or 70,000 will bo tho extent that will ho pack ed in tho city, and but very few will bo packed at any of the above named towns. In Illinois, some few more will ho packed this winter than last, Hut throughout tho whole Western country, it is said, that tho amount of Pork picked will not ex ceed ono half of tho exportation of last year. There can bo no question but that Pork, as well as Lard ond Hacon, will he high for thn next year. The quantity in market will be les than the demad fur consumption. The spare ribs and feet wore formerly given away, and often thrown away this year there is a deir.and for them, and arc sold at 75 oents per barrel, for foot, and two cents each for spare ribs. Two or three Virginians and a number of Yan kee ero hero this fall, for tho purposo of packing pork, but the scarcity and high prir.es of hogs havo deterred them from taking hold. N.
