On motion of Mr. Calhoun *he House resolved itself into a committee of the whole, Mr kelson of Va. in the chair, on i|,e bill to provide fu tile more effectual collection of the public reve nue in the lawful money of the country_to e» f rc> the : avme't ofspe^ e. The amendments offered yesterday by Mr. Calhoun were read— The first section of which provides (substanti ally) for the issue of Treasury Notes to the a inount of-dollars, of such eonven ent de nominations as the Secretary of the Treasury shall direct; transferable by delivery, not to hear interest ; not to be fundable : to be receiv ed every wherein dues to the United States; and may here-issued from time to time. The 2d,3d and 4th sections provide for the preparing, signing and issuing the Treasury Njtes, for paying the expense thereof, and the usual penalties for counterfeiting them I ne 5:n section provides, tt)ut the Secretary of the Treasury shall issue said notes upon loan totheRmk of the Un fed States, or any state ■ bank applying theref.r. on micIi terms s he shall deem necessary’, having regard to 'he cir cumstances of each case, and the security of the United Stat. s, at a rate of interest not less than -per cent per annvrn ; but not to loan to any state bank more than a moiety of their capi tal paid in ; the*#- loans to be reimbursable in three equal annual instalme nts, cm-tred from the date of the respective loans ; and be paid for as they become due, in lie legal coin or in trea su y notes. [The moiety, on motion of Mr Smith was subsequently converted into one fourth ] The 6th section utliurizc* the Secre ary of the Treasury to issue said notes at their pat- va lue to individuals, companies nr corpora* ons and receive in payment thrrefor the U S. stocks; but the amount sold for funded debt not to -xe«ed [‘ive") mi l. ms ; the notes so sold be taken out of the annual approprialmr.s for the si ik .ng fund, and the funded debt thus acquir ed, to be transferred to the commissioners of the sinking fund, and by them applied as the law di rects with other funded debt The 7th section nukes it die duty of the Se cretary of the Treasury, annually, to withdraw from circulation, and to cancel a portion of said treasury notes, equal to one-third of the uhole amount issued ; 1 lie 8th net on of the amendments provides that the future issues of treasury notes, under the act of feb. 24, 1815, shall not exceed the sum of five millions of dollars. The amendments being read, a long and ardu ous deba’e followed, of which we ran give at present only the name- of the speakers, and a few of their prominent arguments Mr. Calhoun moved to fill the blank in the first section with fifteen millions; and then, in a speech of some length, stated to the commit lee the benefits which were anticipated from the proposed issue of treasury notes ; the aid and relief'hey would afford to thee mmuni 'ir, ei. h • p e it - wh (h would un. o dublv, be p od .c ed by the banks in the necessary curtailment of their notes from circulition, fee preparatory to the resumption of specie payments, which the bill would enforce It was his op,nion that the bdl would be effectual in producing the pay ment of specie yvithout the aid of this feature ; but there were others who doubted whether the restoration could be well or safely effected with nut it; and he wished to afford every facility and relief that could be With propriety given as well to the hanks as to the community. Mr. iioL’trtcon followed in opposition to the amendment, against which he argued at some [ length. He objected o it ch efly on the ground, that it would form an unfortunate and hazardous connection tietween the government and the stale hanks ; extending the indirect influence of the bank'tw!i , h ad bveu of en compi ne oftoadi. rect influence ; and instead of compeil ng the banks to sell their public st-ck and meet the r engage i ents, would mere se tlieir means of re sisting the measuies to coerce them into the payment of specie, 8tc. dfr. Barbour replied to ,ffr. Robertson, and defended the amendtn nt on .he ground of the great assistance it would afford to the communi ty in meeting the state of things wh efi must take place under t!ie pressure inevi ablv created by the banks in re-tinting to specie payments ; lus desire to resort to mild means ; its accustom ng the people to give credit to paper issued under the authority of government ; its embracing and assisting those banks possessing no public stork, &c Mr. Cailu spoke against the amendment. It would be re-toaning the public funds at fire per cent, while the government was borrowing at seven ; would be collecting the revenues of the government in its own paper only, and de feating the object of laying taxes ; that it would tend to depress our stocks in K.urope ; that it would be better to give credit to those indebted to the government at six per cent, a year ; that no bank would Ixirrow these notes wh rh meant to pay for them ; as it would be giving five p*-r cent for notes to lend out to its customers ; and that the issue of fifteen millions, if they enuid he kept in circulation, would drive spec e’out of the country nstead of drawing it thnner, &c. -lfr. Tucker moved to fill the blank with fen m II ons Mr. Calhoun replied to the arguments against the amendment. He had no idea the banks would resume specie payments willingly; they woulu go into t only because they would see inevitable ruin i re'using but as they would bccompe leo by to embrace the measure, lie wished to g>ve them ample means Humbert made some remarks m favor of the larger sum. b ifteen millions might be used for other purposes than in loaning to the banks_ t might be applied to the purchase of slocks to loans 10 ind Viduals, &c. The motion to fill the blank with Jifteeu was lost ayes, 55, noes59. .1/r Tucker then, for the present, withdrew Ins motion; and 1'he question on agreeing to the first section as an amendment, still in blank, was carried— aves, 59. tines 58. J»/r. Tucker renewed his motion to fill the Wank wuh un millions. -1/r. Webster sta ed some objections to the prov s,on in its present shape, lie should have no unwillingness to authorize an issue of treasu ry •«>'«* "> another way ; to make them payable to the public creditors he th .ugln would be pre ferable o the manner contemplated, Sic .Mr Arwton moved die sum of thirteen .Mr Gron-eno ■ then rose aud sta’ n3 his ohjec turns lo tiie proposed issue of t etuury not. s winch he viewed a- the first atiempt y«i made o cieaie a |)a]iei currency for t|«e Country In h - l ght Mr G. discussed the subject at much le g h—ai gumgaga ns- ancx^cri e t so dang*, r.us m principle, and which universal exper.ewa; p...ved would always end in a depreciated cur rency, how ever feasible it urghi appear in time of p ace and iranq lity.

He v.ewed the proposition urn der d.scuss.on as one which Would produce -he happiest c nsequen es, Tnequesion was then taken on filling the blank w itli ten and carried—ayes 66 Mr. Webster moved to strik,* out of the 5di section the words “ to the bank of the United St.tes ;* wii.ch, at'.er some discussion was a grted to. Mr Smith of Mil. movetl to fix the amount of interest to be required of the ha .k-, at three percent per annum ; and supported bis motion at some length, entering somewhat into tuegsi cral question of the expediency of the mea sure. Mr, Calhoun moved to fill the blank with fiv percent.and replied at still greater length than before, to Messrs Cirusvenor, Ituberison and o hers, who had spnjcen in opposition. Mr. Roierttou moved tic per cent, and added some remarks in support ot the opm.ons he bad advanced. Afer some further discussion, the motion to nil the blank with tix per cent, wjs carried— ayes 55, noes 53. Mr Sheffey moved an an endment which would Confine the loan of these treasury notes to such banks only as bold no stock of die United States.—Negatived—ayes 45. TlieKth section was then agreed to—58 to 51. Mr Hall then proposed to amend the bill by reviving and adding thereto the former fourth section, winch imposed a high stamp duty on the notes of the banks not paying specie on the dav specified ; winch mot on Mr ff made some remarks in favor of—stating bis object o be to give the solvent banks an opportunity of paying specie, and of putting down tv, ihat could not pay j which could only be d me by the provision he proposed to renew. Mr. 'ranker agreed with Mr Hall, in some de gree i and proposed to modify the amendment by making it an uniform stamp duty ,,f lo per cent, on all nvtes issued by the delinquent banks. Mr, Hoot spoke against (he motion to renew the section ; and disputed the power of Congress, under the constituton, to adopt such a measure’ wh.ch was of the nature of a penalty, and in tended as a punishment that could not constituti onally be inflicted on the banks. Mr Randolph also opposed the adoption of this section, to which nothing similar could be f >und m the code of any nation under the sun He argued against the measure at some length ami condemned it as ant.-republican and dm’ gerou*—as adding, to the power and patronage of the Secretary of the Trea ury, »1 eady ,7,0 great,discretion dangerous in the extreme and .11 effect mak ng hU will the measure of taxa tion, Sec.
