Hut the Southern States tvere now in thai liluation that they demanded some more explicit action, espe cially uf!or tliu orcurenevs of the last rummer. Incendiary publications had inundated the Southern Slates, and the apostles uf abolition were roaming abroidin every d. ruction.

She was bound by nn inexorable lie rcfbily to defend her righu by nil tho means which Uuu nnu iiaturo had nut ltiln her hands. Ho im plored gentlemen lo look at her condition, and lo see that tho effect of this interference would be to wrap her cities in Hatnes, and cover her fields with blood.

Mr Adami said he would givo notice that unloss tho information should bo communicated to tho House to dav or on Monday next, he should submit a proposition on tho subject. On motion of Air llarutn, who complained mat tho Western people had not a fair chanco to pre sent their petitions, nnd who remarked that the green vallies of the Ohio were as much entitled to bcr heard ai tho green mountains of Vermont ; the House proceeded to roccivo petitions, beginning where they left olT on Monday last. Tun following njcuuut oftho legacy lately left to our General (iuvcrumrnt fur tho foundation of a literary inMitullon, is from lho corrc.iponde.il of the Union Daily Advcrtircr. Tliti writer is in nr ror, however, in stating thai Ihu Hugh Sin.lhson in whose favor lho lilies ef lho Percy family wcio revived, was a descendant of the old Pcrcius. In point of fact, he became connecloil with Ibciu only by marrying the female representative of the fami ly, the male heirs having become cxtincl j and he subsequently dropped (he name of Smilhson, ami assumed the name and arms of Percy. The Smith son who has left llns legacy, mutt have been a whole or half-brother of the Lord Percy who at tho brenkiug out of our revolution figured in the retreat of the llritish troops from Concord, and who died in England (having succeeded to his falhei't Duke- dum; in 1617. U'ASiii.Noro.N, Dec. !i8, 1830. Tho President has communicated official infor mation to Congress of the large donation, uf which there was talk last nutumn, made by on English man fur thn foundation of a literary institution; and as the facts aro a little curious, I givo you what I have learned un tho subject. Vou may, perhaps, be aware that the male lino of the old'l'ereies of lho- house of Northumber land is extinct. The estates devolved, during thn lust century , upon Hugh Smilhson, a descendant of tho family in tlifennlu line, in whose favor the title was revived ; and tho present Duko of North umberland is of this funily of Sinithrotis. This Sir Hugh Smilhson, first Duke of North umbciland of the family, had a son, James Sinilli son, hy his wife Elizabeth, heiress of the Hunger fords of Audley, nnd ncico of Charles tho proud, Duke ofSomerfct, well known to memoir-readem ami to persons conversant with the personal history of eminent Englishmen.
