Mr Norvoll of iMichigan, introduccd u vcsolution dcclariiig it as tho scnsn of tho Senatc that no onc conccrncd in a duol ought aftorwards to bc appointed to any public ofiico undor tho Unilod Statcs. A bill was rcnorted bv the Coniinitteo on Itoads and Canals, making an appropriation of $75,000 for toadsin tho Turritcry of Wiicpnsiii. Mr Morris, from tho comniittoe on Honds and Canals, rcportcd a bill for dividing the Turritory of Wisconsin into two torritorios lowa nnd Wiscon fcin. Tho bill was reforred to tho Conirailteo on tho Judiciary. At 1 o'olook tho Sub-Ticasury Bill was taken up. Mr Itobbins of Khodo Island tool; tho floor and spoke for a little moro than an hour with great forcc and intorett. His voico, howover, was weak, that I canhnrdly give.yon an outlino of his spoech. Thu objoct of his romarks was intendod to show Iho cireots of tho SubTrcasury Bill upon the Banks and uponTtho l'eoplo of tne United Staies. Tho cft'oct ol tho bill Iio avorred would be to lock up tlio grrat storc-houso of national cntcrpriso nnd national industry. It would destroy both tho ineans .nnd the mind of tho courilry. It would bring upon tho country all tho calnniitics oi a for eign war, and when "tho mindt;. and inoaus, and country woro dcstroyed, hopoand consolation wont with tliern. What avails, said Mr llobbins, our vast oxtcnt of tcrritory when you tako from hor tho means whoroby sliolives? whon. liko tlio iiarba- rian, you traniple hcr intcrost into tho dust ol op prossion . It will not do, continucd Mr It., to nfliira that all thisisdeolainmatory Inngungo Lookto tlmtportion of tho bill whiuh domands, now partial, nnd ulti uiately oxclusivo payin'iiiils of speoie lorpublic dues. Tlio eilect of this part of tho bill was to withdraw spooio from ciroulation, and to Iioard it. Tho gov ornmont was constantly dcmanding, and constantly drawing pper.io. Tho Banks under huch a state of things would bo compcllcd to curtail thoir issuo to a frightful and ruinous oxtcnt. As a consequonce of all this, ovory bank note would bo roturned to tho BanUs. Every man liav ing stioh a noto would prescnt it and dcinand spccio. Tho Banks would bo run upon atall times to supply tho detnand of tho Govornmont for jspecic. Tho Bill would bo ns a donth-warrant to tho bankiug in stilutions, and tho oft'ect of its practical oporatiou would bo to bring nbnut the, by somo, long-wisbod for, extinction of all banks. Private banking would thcn succocd public banking, and n basc and irro sponsiblo currency would go abroad over tho land. Tho banks gave supporl or cucourugomoiit, Mr llobbins nllirmcd, to nitio-tenths of the oommunity. By this war upon tho banks this altack upon the banks and this extinction of tho banks, these niui) parts of tlio wliolo pcoplo wore to bo niado tlio suf iorcrs from this bill. Mr llobbins enlarged upon thcso topics al somo lengtli, but his voico was so low that tho reportcr could not hear. Mr Itobbins continucd and furthcr said that the ofFect of the bill would bo to unhouso your mochan ics closo your workshops sproad dcsolalion ovcr the Innd. Upon tho gruat labor of tho counti'Vi its eH'ects would bo ruinous and dcsolating carrying us back to the dark ages of the old world. It was not long since, said Mr It., wo wore upon tho high road to prosperity. Peaceand contentment roigncd throughout tho land. Tho rivcrs did not find their way to tho ocean with moro cortainty than did wo bave tlio assurancuof prosperity under our formor rogulnr, safo, uuiform and constant nd vanco. Our motion was onwdrd, nnd all wero liappy. The cry against Banks, MrR. continucd, 18 that thoy wield a dangerous power. Who creat id banks? It was tho crcnting power that was to blame, and not tho banks thcy that gave the power woro tho dangerous party, if thero was danger. Mr llobbins waj followed by Mr Benton, who has bogun a long spoech. In tho II o U30, Mr I'ajnter, on lcavo, prcsenicd a momorial on tho subject of dueling. Iteferredto' tho Soloct Committco. Mossrs.
