La Femme.
A iK'rscti there lives in the city of Pari.'-, whose name t

rose t ' the contemplation of Birds, and thtu soared to ^

dec ccy of the country is not a matter to boast about, ,
now that “ L’Amour ” and “ La Femme are seen upon
th counters of the booksellers from the Penobscot to the t
Rio Grande. 1
It mus- he admitted that, scattered here and there in |
tb*' two volumes, some learning and same fine sentiments j
will be found. But the °hredsof knowledge and the tag-ot
feeling resemble jewels in a compost heap. Tne detest- ^

T..c d« p ivity of French literature Is no new thing un- \

to per centum on th" amount of his commission to pay.
’bus you see. that the agent buying or selling slaves on
omo.i <sion is put «n the same looting as gentlemen tol

liif' the agent or merchant, who sells cotton, corn ami
lie like, is put ou the same footing as that untortuuato
ml odious class, “the clerks."
ae how any such system of taxation was ever put upon
s bv the law-making people of the land, and that we
'ill, u*>" and hereafter, continue to coutcud for our

And la“tlv,

0 the Editor of the Whig:
It Ls a matter of deep concern, as well as pro
jutui sorrow, to tho-e Whigs and Americans, who
re trull/ and sincerely anxious for the overthrow of that
to t corrupt organization, falsely called Democracy, to
l'c our forces divided, and rendered useless, by internal
is.seutions, aud euvious feelings of rivalry. Though
acre in .v have been just cause* tor the attack upon
it* author of the attiele in the Clipper, signed “Frank
u," I am utterly at a loss to understand how you eati
ist'fv vourselt in the wholesale denunciation of Mr.
lott-s, and his friends in this *'-tate. It is not my pur
o-e to justify “Franklin;’’ I know not, ami care no*,
uo he is. But, in your haste to correct his missiati -
lents, vou have filleu into an egregious error yourself
'ou say "Mr Butts has not five thousand friends in tl.o
tan*.’’ Now , i happen to know, that be has two thou
rid in the counti. -> of Rockingham and Augusts. In
i.il portion of Alhemaile borderiug on the Blue Ridge,
auow that lie is the unanimous choice ot the Whig
union ol the community. You also refer to the voto
pon “Crane’s" substitute as u test vote. 1 know that
was not so regarded by the Convention, as mativ of
Ir Botts’s warmest friends voted against it. But, even
Jmitting it to l»e a test vote, what becomes of your as
•rtion, that Mr. Butts has not five thousand friends
1 the State '• You admit that upon that test,
e had over thirticn thousand. Is this the lime,
i.-t ou the eve ot »u important election, one
rnt may decide the fate not only of the Opposition par
,*, but t ie Union, 1 repeat is this ihc time, lot* angry di
I’.-sions amongst ourselves'. Can we divide our forces
nd still beat the enemy ? If our object is the spoils,
e are pursuing the proper course, aud the sooner we
lake a “Kukt nney cat fight” ol it, the better for the
Duntrv. It has been a mutter of surprise to me to sie
!.* bitter feelings exhibited towards ' r. Butts, by some
f out own party. In whit bus he offended * Has lu
ll or done anvtbing likely to injure the party or the
uuntrv '• If so, let those who denounce him point out
hci. in he h is i (Vended, and meet him in fair discus

The question then occurred on the joint resolution a
The adoption of the resolution was advocated te

the items of property so conveyed, and their probabli
value ?
Mr. RAYMOND replied that thejleed was not befon
Then, Mr. M. said, more light is required before thi
large sum should be surrendered. For, from the facts be
fore referred to, we have its substantial security nov
for the payment of as large an amount as we should hav

favor of our present position, that we release nothing

Col. Samuel Johnston ol the 89th Regiment, undei iht
power given him by law, o i the 27in ol November la-t,
called iipo ih<- service ot the St.it--, a paitiou ol hi- Ri
cimen’ and immediately at.* r doing so he notified the

doubts about allowu g this cluitu, icterred the matter to
the A'tornev *i.r.il. w(i i d, i-.-li-d the claim ought to he
paid. Tucro being a difference ol opiniou between the
Hoard and the Attorney General, the toriner, aitnough
expressing it as tie ir opinion the claim ought not to be
allowed, reported it arid tie action of the Hoard in ill ■
premis- - lo the Attorney <»■ n ral, lor final adjudication.
T.u- aiitiioniv ot tl.e Commandant ot a Regiment, in
such a contingency to call out his men, is in addition to
the pow.-r conferred upon the (inventor by the cou-titu
tion and laws, as binding upon those under him as
would be the order of the Executive. The officers
ami men under him were absolutely bound to obey him,
and it so when in service under an order which they
were by laxv bound to obey, they are cl arly entitled to
the compensation given them by the same law f »r tln-ir
-irvii-i-s. It is freely admitu-d that the reply of Cover
i:or \\ i*c, to t!i** (11*1) it*'ti iruiii uoi. wa- nor
explicit, and is susceptible of dillercnt interpretations;
yet tiio plaiutomtuou sense ol Col. Johnston construed
it into an approval ol what he l.nd done and was doing.
At all events the claimants were bound to obey the or
der of the Colonel, and it was t o part of tin ir duty to
question his authority or to interpret the dispatch of
i l.jv. Wise. They performed service under a law which
' they were compelled to obey, aud by the same law we
arc bound to pay them.

' chairman of the Committed on the Harper’s Ferry ex

to audit thes. cliinis The gentleman stated in reply to
opposition made to the bill that the members of the
Board were State officers, intelligent aud responsible,and
coul I attend to this business better than a committee of
tlie llou-e, or the House itself, and thus the Legislature
would save time and be relieved from much trouble by
their appointment. The Hoard lias reported adverse to
this claim, mid now the Legislature is asked to instruct
that committee to pay the claim. \\ by should this Reg
iment be paid for protecting their own lives and proper
tv? They were not at Harper’s Ferry, and were not de
fending the State, but tlu ir own firesides
Mr. GIBSON moved to amend the resolution by ad
ding the following;
Rctol. t l. That the Board of Commissioners appointed

to sl ow one full month's pay to all per.-ons who served,

On motion of Mr. HARBOUR, aSeuate joint resolution
reported from the Conpniltooof Finance, w ith an amend
ment, was tiketj up. The resolution, originating in the
Senate, and passed bv that body, reads as follows:
Rt'ohtil, hv fh' (,'cnfral Jumtl/y, That the Board
of Pubiio orks are hert-Lv authorized and instructed to
adjust vmd settle the balnn.e d le to the State oi \ irginia
from the late firm of Selien, Withers A Co., on the basis
of charging said firm only with the par value and interest
of the six per cent, bonds and a pioportiopate value and
interest on the five per cent, sterling binds which were
either purchased bv said firm from (tie Raid Board or
placed by said Board in the bands of said firm as agents
of the State lor rale under the several contracts entered
into between the said Board of Public \\ orks and 'h •
-aid Bolden, Withers \ Co.: Provided, that said Seldeu
Withers a Co., or any member or members ol sutd firm
| shall pay or secure to be paid within a reasonable period,
satisfactory to the said Hoard and to the Attorney Gene
i ral of the State, the balance so ascertained to lie due.—
And provided, further, that nothing herein contained
shall have the effect of recognizing or admitting as part
of the public debt, the sterling bonds which were lost in
the steamer Aretic.
The House committee on Finance, proposed to amend
the bill as follows ;
After tbe>kword “Arctic’ in the lost line, add the
glad il some member would nine an appeal irom me ue
ctsion of the Chair, and let ti c House decide for itself —
Thereupon, Vi r. TOMLIN' took an appeal, and after a lon|
debate the ayes and no a were called, and it was decid>-<
that the resolution did require a constitutional miijorr.;
to pass it. So it was declared lost.
The bill making an ad litiotml appropriation " to defra;
the Harper’s f erry expenses," returned from the Seuati
with au amendment, was taketi up, the question being ot

the General Assembly, by t ie Commissioners appointed
to audit them, as directed.
The bill passed tiii. body, but was deemed instiftieien
by the Senate to accomplish the objects designed by it—
hence the amendment under consideration, proposed h_t
the Senate to the bill. Th** amendment simply incri asei
the appropriation proposed .11 the bill, by the addition o
