This money was used to aid iu securing the election of the President's •pecial frieuiLs—to corrupt the people with their own money. Al the time this was going on, the President al fee ted to be righteously iudiguant at the use of money to influence elections. Ou the g-td of November, 1 he wrote a letter lo the l>u.piesne Ceutcnuial Committee, from which we make the following extract: "1 shall asume the privilege of advancing years in ref ereucw to another growiug and dangerous evil. In the last age,although <>ur tatlicrs. like ourselves, were divided into political parties, w hich otieu had severe conflicts with each other, yet we never beard until within a recent period of the employment of money to carry elections.— Should tiiU practice increase uulil ail voters and tkeir representatives iu the "state and National Lcgislaturv ahall become infected, the fountain of tree government will then be poisoned at its source, and we must end, as .wt ipv nrtiiM in « 4 11.iti. Republic, all agree, cannot long survive, unless sustained by public virtue. When th: - is corrupted and the people become venal, there is a cancer at the root o!' the tree o! Liberty, which must cause it to wither and die.” This letter was quoted by the enemies of republican institutions in Europe as proof that the people of tin United States were bt-coaitig venal and corrupt, and that the experiment of - l:-government was a failure. Wli • a’ th it time drcin.ed that M •. Buchanan himself u aecte'.ly employing money to carry the elections of his friend:, a practice which he seemed to deplore with vv | allected regret, and that he himself was implicated in a etlort to poison the "fountain ot free government at it source-” Alt?’ for human virtue when the head of a great nation wh.es homilies on the lapse of public virtue, ami practices the corruption he condemns. It gives us no pleasure to dwell on the fact that the p -opie of the United States bare selected a Pecksuiif to occupy tin- Presidential chair, hut the truth ought not to be disguised. The money of the people has beeu used to aid in corrupting the pe >p!e’s representatives, and th> testimony of the President's special aud confidential friends shows that thous-iuis of dollars were used tor thi purpose, with the Piesident’s implied consent, at the ve rt time that he was shedding crocodile teats over the fact that the fountain of free government was being pois oned at its source. Let Mr. Buchanan exculpate himself,i: he can, from the damning evidence of his ow n friends.— Uu.il he does this, the jiejple can wtdl dispense with hi homilies on the subje ct of political virtue.

Mr. Roliertson said: Though laboring under serioi iudis(K>sition, so as scarcely to he able to make hiinse heard, nothing should prevent his at least making the a tempt to say something on the important bill under coi sideration. The apathy and seeming iudillcreuce of th House towards it.he w as at a loss to ueeount for. It coul hardly be that they did not appreciate its iroportauce. lt was rather, perhaps, that shrinking ofteu oceasioue by the very magnitude and difficulty of great question with which we feel we are bouud to grapple. Whatevc the cause, or whatever the solution, the necessity of ac ing on this subject could not be evaded. The exigenc was pressing, and must be met. The House had recen lv p issed uuder review the long line of our internal in provements, of every grade, from the largest to the leiu considerable. It had dealt with almost all ol them, h thought, in a spirit ol w ise and judicious liberality. 1 had in the main given them the succor they uceded, an in proportion to their wants. It had opened up, alst new aveuues of trade and intercourse, for districts < country now almost shut out from them. It had, in h opinion, deserved well of the country, and entitled Use to public gratitude. But the greatest work of all—th James River and Kanawha Canal—was still behind. That was still to be provided for. It was that wliic . . ..... .1_.1_......... ... v„. „..l..r„ii.. be red by posterity, by the blessings it would confer on tii country. It was that which yet remained to crown the labors. coronat ojtut.” Without that, their wor was still incomplete. Without it, be was fully convince that hardly a work they had projected or aided,but woul utterly fail of realizing the rich returns ex|iectcdof i and which it is capable of yielding. Many ol them woul be a mere burden on the treasury, and had better uevt been undertaken. This work is the great sustaii iug tunuel of almost all of them. lie would ventue t state it us his opinion, however extravagant it may L viewed by some, that it wa> not only the most imperial of them all, but more important than all ot them coinbit ed. Let not gentlemen be startled. lie repeated that, i his opiniou, a greater amount of public interests were it volvt d in the support or the decay and abandonment ( this work, than iu that of all they bad so far provided fo He challenged the fullest scrutiny an i analysis of the opii ion. He asked them to come close up to the grounds t it aud judge if it were well lounded. L'-t us suppose the work abandoned or gone to ruin what are the inevitable losses which would follow? I has cost already upwards of ten millions of dollars, whicl ot course would bo a totnl loss to the Shite. Underrate and misunderstood, as it continually is iu that respect, hazard little iu say iug that its benefits, in the wav of rt duced tolls and faros, represent a sum nut less thau tL annual interest of ten millions more. Looking to its length of 250 miles, I have no doubt is an under-estimate to say that it adds ten dollars pc acre to a million of acres of land, making another to millions to go down with it. You would hardly estimat the injury to this city, Lynchburg ami Petersburg, an the smaller towns along the course of it, at less thau at other sum of ten millions of dollars, liut look in unothi direction. It.'abandonment would depress, if not dc.‘ troy, all hope of foreign commerce. It would a! one Jwraf your York Kiver Railroad from a Slate to hard! more than a county improvement, it would almost des i-.-uv the value of your South-Side connections—of you Uiv inna and North River improvements. It would h felt throughout its whole length most injuriously, bv you great Virginia and Teiiucssi e Railroad, and the great in crei'ing trade aud productions of East Tennessee, fo which mainly it was built, aud even now with the advan tage of the canal vibrating in the balance, whether P a iopt it or the Western outlets to market, would—tba advantage relinquished—be lost irrecoverably, both t< it and to the State. Most of all would it be disastrous t< ti e Covington and Ohio Railroad—which, instead of th fruitful source of benUil to the State it i< o fondly hop.-, to prove, would then become but a huge monument o legislative folly—a curse, and a burden upon your Trea <ury forever. Look upou these inevitable results, as •one* iie, ot the decay of the James River and Kuiiuwh i anal, ami say it I have exaggerated the importance o uistaining it. These are certain and direct consequences of abandon •r tins guut work. Who 'bull pi.-tend to estimate tin v due of that rich freight of litqitd for blessings aud ben -tit- to the Common wealth in the future wherewith it i lid-.n; to secure which it was projected, and for which i inis bet it still sustained and urged, Itoaever sluggishly inward for a space ol five and twenty year* ! What i ibe character of it v and what is iu object ? it is di gued to be a continuous line of water communicatioi in abut at one end ot. the waters of the Ohio, which i :be gate ot the Western woild, ami on the other on tin wat> rs ot the Jaiucs, w hich is the gate of the Hasten so Id. Ii is to be cut through the mountains that inter let -• aud be the conduit ot their vast and diverse pro ins lions. < In the one 'ide are the vast plains and uiouu .litis of the Wc't, rich in nil the raw product'of tin i.-Ids, the forests, and the mines; and on the other tin ue it hive of manufacturing industry ol the East, teem ug with CVety variety ol fabric made by the bands o nun—both waiting but for the removal of the harrier .ha now scprr.ite them to rush into exchange, and mutu illy niccct, and fund'll the supply and demand that hot! ire prepared and eager to interchange. I>et these harrier* >e but removed, und » but it picture of prosperity would Virginia present! Levying just tribute on the vast (reams of wealth that would then pour through fu-i elude length, from one extremity to the other of her ter i’Otv, wl.at would then be the spectacle she would ‘xbihit? Her fields teeming with every variety of agif uillural product; her valleys everywhere vocal with the -hecrful hum of manufacturing industry ; her popululiot lor.tiled ; the wharves of her cities become the great ex •! angcofa world; cities that should then recall aud riva he ancient glories of Sydon and ol Tyre ; her commerce vbitei ing every sea; her moral development keeping pact with her material; Virginia would then attain to the hu e-rid grandeur aud opulence and power for which Hod Hid Nature seemed to have designed her. Is this a * liool hoy's fancy ? Is it a mere sketch of the imagine ion or a practical deduction of the reason ? If it be n Ircuin, it was one at leas* of men who vindicated, in tbeii lay, a title to practical sagacity that none living will veu nr-- to rail in question. It was the dieamol Washing on, of Madison, of Marshall, who, each in the different, tnd in many respects dissimilar, careers it was allotted heui to mu, showed themselves, beyond all their com K-ers, fitted and able to grapple with the realities of life. 1VI10 is there, here or elsewhere, that shall deride as visi tuarv or impracticable auv project that received then avor and sanction ? Hut, >ir, if »e let this groat work fail, what would be he spectacle Virginia would then present? Her town* til dwarfed and unimportant; her fields tilled by a scat • red nuil unprosi>erous population; her people still leav ing beie for more inviting fields of industry ; she fall* rack, -till receding, lower aud low er in the scale of States —a thing, it may be. of scorn or pity, without powei tc i ike herself cither feared or respected—subject, it might >e, to aggression or insult which she could neither pun sh nor resent. What is the condition of this great work that now •alls on you for aid ? It is ou the verge, it is in the vo •y jaws of bankruptcy. It cannot pay its officers, its lontractors or its worktneu. Its absolute necessities hat * seen met by the private credit of its President aud Di ve tors, and by the forbearance, in some instances, emi lettly patriotic, of the contractors themselves. Tilt n il is not conliucd to this. Some of its principal works, ts lams, tw o especially, one near Lynchburg, and atioth •r a short distance above this city, on which depend the rust products ol the valley of James River for liit mean* >f getting to market, are in momentary danger of giving nay. And the snow may be even now falling on your uountaius, which, melted by the coming spring, may uriish tint swolen Hood that shall sweep them from their emulation. And this great and eminent catastrophe, rhicb, if it should happen, would speedily occasion to he State losses tenfold the amount necessary to avert hem, it depends, now, on you, and you alone, to pre et.t. Hut you will say, it has been said, “Shall we be called m to aid a company that has so mismanaged its affairs as o ead to this state of things ? that has tbits shown it ch'incompetent and unlit to be trusted? Sir, 1 deny bat the condition ol its affairs Is the result of misraan gement, or proof of iucompeteucy. Xot t'iat I, or any isn can, suppose that so great a work could be carried n lor more than twenty years, absolutely without nib akes—but tliat any have occurred capable at all of ac 0 lilting lor, or of producing, the -fate of things that ow exists, 1 am satisfied cannot be shown. During this whole period it has lieen in charge of liree, ouly, of your most respected citi/cns, John 0. Cu rll, John Y. Mason and Thomas II. Elds, men distiu* nished for the intelligence, fidelity and zeal with which lev devoted thpmselves to the interests of the work ommi'ted to them. They not ouly gave to it all ; eir time and energies—but, it deserves to be meulioued, ud to be remembered, what 1 doubt if can be said of iv work of its magnitude in this or any other country, tat they disbursed, through a period ol more than tweu r years, millions of money with a caution and integrity 1 remarktiblo, that a dishonest or improper expenditure, r application of the company’s funds, has never been liarged. or even been suspected! The honor of the late autt'ered no staiu iu ilieir keeping, and no blush of lame need crimson our cheeks as we revie* in this r* )rct, at least, their administration of the affairs ol the jtupany. f Tbs fhult which ha* reduced the Company to 'It* de plorable condition, waa not the Company’s—uor of the manage nent of it. The fault was here in this Hall ol the Legislature itself. Tho policy ou which the Company rested its hopes of success has not been pursued. Why . has it not been ? It was a policy devised mainly, I bc . lieve, bf Mr. Cabell, with the great abilities of Chapman .lohnsoi to aid him—was embodied in the charter grant ed by the Legislature, who thus gave it their sanction, and had the concurrence and active co-operation, also,of Mr. Mirsball, whose declining days were gilded by the hopes this measure inspired, that ^his long cherished dream of future glorv and power for Virginia, by means of it, was at length to be realized. This policy was to carry on tho work upon au adequate basis of subscribed capital. to*be enlarged from time to time as might be uecesst.ry. Accordingly the charter provided for a capi tal oi !P'i,000,000, with a provision to enlarge it to any amount necessary for the completion of the work. No one evjr dreamed of completing a work of fifteen or twenty millions ou a basis of five. The Company never departed from its original policy. Its first application to the Legislature, after exhausting the original live millions, r was for an enlargement of the capital stock, and that po r licy, I believe, in all its applications, was invariably urged e u|>ou your adoption. It was the Legislature itself that e overruled that policy, aud substituted that miserable a Iroin-hatid-to-raouth |>olicy ol boi rowing, front year to year, what was necessary to keep the work alive, on L> which the Company has ever since been barely .subsist ing, and which has filially, as was to have been expected, resulted iu its present exhausted and helpless condition, i- What great work was ever yet undertaken by individuals c or c<ir|Kiralious, and successfully prosecuted on merely borrowed capital ? It was not, then, the management c of the Company—it was not Ute policy of the Company that hia broken down this great w ork, hut it was the pol icy of the Legislature itself, adopted against the wishes aud prjtest ol the Company, hut to which it has no al ternative hut to submit. It comes agaiu before you, in its extremity, asking J succor. I do uot think, iu view of the exigencies in which it is placed, you will deny it. The question is in what te rm shall it be given ? Tho Company still ask a s recurrence to the origiual policy, an increase of capital I stock, and a loan oi as much money as is needed (MM, . oi to) to pay oil' mainly its Uoatiug debt. Hut two other plaus a "c suggested. Due plau is to sell out Uie Com pa e ny on the mortgages y ou hold, and, of course, buy iu J yourselves the property. It would, indeed, be a smart - speculation. You might make a handsome plumb by it. J But let us look iuto this. Who are this Company *— s They Hre but your own citizens. Not only so; hut 1 uu r dertake to say, that never yet was known a subscription to any great public w ork, where the inducement to it for y profit, ai an investment, bore so small a proportion to the - paitioiic spirit which prompted it. Doubtless the former - consideration entered, more or leas, iuto the views of the t subscribers to its stock; but looking back,as I can,to those e w ho asst inblcd in this Hail to set ou foot this gi eat under t taking, I hazard nothing iu saying that the moving impulse J that animated their action, was more the love ol country i, than the love of gam. Even your corporations caught 1 the patriotic contagion aud blended it with financial s views. You granted v liberal charter, you invited, nay, f in the cate of the Bank of Virginia, almost coerced sub e scriptions; you break down by your own course of poli - cy the value of the property of your own citizens, then ft •<»•]] ir nnil Itnv it in tnr <• untiir! Whv it 5a it run. i- uibalistu—and of the most unnatural kind—for you feast e on your children. It is as a sow that feeds on her own r farrow. But the picture is too disgusting. Aud I turn iv from it in the confidence that it can never find favor at d the hands of this House. J Anotbe' plan contemplates a change of the company’s organization, so as to make it purely a State work. 1 d deprecate the change, and hope the Legislature will not r sanction i . This State Las ex er kept itself freer, than i- any know i to me, from the corrupting intiuenccs of mo o uey. The ugh loug in the hands of those whose political 0 course 1 have always opposed and deprecated, 1 am yet t proud tha". the honor of the Slate, in this regard, re i- mains cssiiitiallv untarnished. Keep it so. These great u State corporations are almo-t everywhere hut the meaus i- aud sources of party corruption, used by the party in if power to taaintuiu its ascendency. Let us have no such -. feud, let is run no such risk. In the main, the mixed • system of State ami in iividual management, 1ms proven if best, aud, I hope, will be adhered to. I profess no particular familiarity with financial - schemes, i.nd do no propose to examine, in detail, that t before the House, especially after the full aud able ex 1, position o’it by tbe gentlemen who have preceded me— J Mes-rs. Dt vis, of Lynchburg, and Anderson, of Bote 1 tourt. It is tbe same substantially that has been recoin - mended by the company to the aduption of the Legi.-ia e tore, for several years successively. It is enough lor me that it has the sanction of the enlightened gentlemen t who have iharge of the work, after full examination, aud r with full knowledge of the subject, ami who have noth ii ing but the interest of the woik to detenniue their cou i- elusions. The plan proposed seems to me wise and judi 1 cious, and worthy of our adoption, uud I appe .1 to the House, in view of the exigencies of the company and the vast in ore.-ts hazz irded by inaction, not to suffer it to fail by i.o re bliud or factious opposition. 1’uder the circums'anors, I think oppo-ition to it ought not to be counter ced, or tolerated, unless tho-e who oppose it shall press- u a better.

The buslne«§ transacted by pri vate contract, however, has been very moderate, and wholly con fined to immediate waute. Manufacturers, generally, comptwiu that hitherto they have not been able to obtain an advaoeelu the value of the manufactured equal to the rise In the raw material, and hence, that they have been compelled to decline buying be yond actual necessities, In order *o keep their mills going. The re sult Is, that there Is now scarcely any stotks of woolen goods on hand, and should an active demand spring up the quotations must advance considerably. Thearilvals of wool from our colours have rapidly Increased during flhe past fortnight, and there are in.w in warehouse fully ¥0,0 mi it* es for sale. That quant ity, Inrlu ding the whole of the fresh Impoi 1st Ions, will be offered at auction lu May next.** THE ORA S TRADR. The Murk Lane Kxpre**, of 2d instant, in its General Agricultural ankle for March, »iji : Owing to the continuance of coM northerly winds, vegetation has made v. ry little progress during the p*st month, even In our most forward districts. The backward appearance of the young wheat has, In many instances, glveu rise to unfavorable teports In refer ence to the prospect of the m xt yield ; but, at prasent, we sre no reason why a short crop should Ue antlc.pated a« th.- result of a backward spring, because, ns fa • as we can ascertain, no actus damage has been sustained by th1) winter wheats, and b« cause the breath of land uuurr cultivation Is fully equal to most previous yean. However, the wheat trade has now become more healthy than for some time pn.it ; price* continue to rise, and very few of the growers or importer* are wiling to sell, except at further en hanced rates. That there Is ample room for even higher rates does not adu.it of a doubt, since the Importations from abroad are like ly to be very model ate for some ' Ime, sod a * our farmers will be much occupied In sewing of bent corn betweeu this and the end of April. In that period, cur maracts wilt be»cantily supplied with wheat, there will be a considerable reduction In the supplies of for legn produce lo warehouse, not cnly in la>nd<*n and Liverpool, but II cwi*e at Hull, Gloucester, Ac., and consumption, under the In Uuenceof a moderate range lo ths value of money, and of an enormous borne trads, wid contir ue large These fe atari s p»d«»t to further enhanced rates for wheat; but our impression la, that we can hardly anil- Ip tie exclUmer. in the <1 *mand, or a range |o val ue much shove ht-a per qr. fur It e I »st of white qualities The sowing of .spring corn has ween delayed to a much later pe riod than u«ual, owing to the saturated • ondition of the Soil There is, however, nothing to fear on th « head; In other words, we do not anticipate any great falling oft* i i the yield from this circumstance. The supplies i ow in stark in all | arts of the United Kingdom are v.-ry moderate ; and he quantities of barley on offer since we l ist w rote have fallen off considerably. The consequence Is, tr.at much difficulty baa been experienced i » obtaining adequate «uppl n» for set d and malting purposes, and the value of all kinds has ruled high As regards potatoes, we may cbterve that fair average supplies have appeared on sale in our leading markets, in, for the most part very ml tilling condition. (io*d sound qualities have changed hands freely, at 14D*. to, In some* Instances, l&N. per ton , but oih er kinds have moved off slowly, At about previous rates. The stocks in growers’ hands are now reduc I to a somewhat narrow compass, and we regret to state that a poHion of them is until for human consumption ; hence unsound qualities will now chiefly be consum ed in dal.I*8. Our advices from the continent arc to the effect that very few potatot.* are now on hand ; so that we cannot suppose that any addi.lon w.:» be made to cur supplies from that quarter.— This lompaiative d« licicncy In the arrival of potatoes may tend to impart additional firmness to tin wheat trade, both here and In the continental markets, where, sine • the commencement of the year, prlc-s have advanced fully (is per qr. We understand that very large orders for the purchase of wheat have lately been forwarded to the various Baltic port*, for ship ment on tfi* re-opmingof the navigation. We may, therefore—es pectally ns stock* have accumulated in the North of Europe—an tlcipate somewhat heavy Importations during the summer months. HMppln / is now Vtundant, and t! e rates of freight are >sry I »w ; but we must bear in mind that th ? arrival* or man wneai am uour frutn the United State*—not w: tbs vndiug that the flupp l • of the former In the hand* of the growers are at ill very Urge—will he limited, ari»irg from the high qu< tatloni In the American market*, and the extent o' the »pe?t itlve investment* by wealthy hoi ler*. It 1* a rriu trkah'e fact that, during the last two year*, U»e produce of Bpilng corn throughout the world has not kent pace with the ac tual want* of the trade. The consequence 1*, that the value of bar ley, oat*, beau* and pea* h** ru>d relat.vely hlghtr than wheat, and that our makers have been compelled to pay enormously high prices fur barley. This stair of tl logs, a* regard* value, I* not like ly ts be improved eV# n by Increased Importations from abroad, tlnce it is quite evident that we arc now In a position to consume every bushel tb it the continent (in .spare for us 1 l*e Fetich markets have bet n moderately well supplied with produce Wheat ha* commanded rather more money, and the value of spring corn ha* been ful:y supported. The shipraen*»to the sooth have continued on a Liberal scale. The stocks of grain on hand are * id Urge for the time of year. In Ireland more money has bern paid for wheat, but the de mand f »r that description of produce has been by no means ac tive. Fine barley and oats have commanded extreme rates, and the transactions in Indian corn have someahat Increased Wry little grain has be -n forwarded either t» Kngland or tcotlsnl, and the Importation* from the westward have been only moderate. The same journal, In Its revb w of the grain trade for the prece ding we:*k, says: “ The recent ’gradual advance, gained with difficulty, has been followed by a larger business than lias been e«|»erlenced for some lime past, e«tablisldng a rise of fuilv *2*. per qr.
