ami M . Floyd. Rut it is no xery violent j.r. - ,
Miuiption tv* suppose 11 lilt this edict of Russia
grew out of tiie report, above referred to,
iiu.ii by Mr. Floyd at tiie last session of Con- j
gross. If so, it is a denial of the title of the I
l . States to any partoftlie Nortll-W est coast
North of.< I degrees. It would appear, fur-J
Itier, to lie a decree put forth for the purpose '
of controverting tin; claim advanced in tliat
repotl—since it cannot he. pretended that j
Russia could sustain any injury, worth guard- |
tug against, by the visit of half a dozen ves
sels per year lo t!;r vast region of sea and
coast embraced bthreen Uch ring's Straits amt
tin :>Ist d -gree of .\orlh Latitude—an extent
of coast twice as large as that of the whole;
coast of the U uited States from tin* Buy of!
Finidy to Cape Fluridu, aud ail extent of sea i
hali'as laige as the Atlantic Ocean. Tin* re
port of the committee of the House of Repre
sentatives of last session allbrds a key to this
decree, vv liieli, wc. apprehend, is to lie found
in the following passage of the report of the
committee of Congress:
“ Tin; comm lift: believe, from tlic utu«p of all na
tion (n i'i ions anil >;iib'.<-(|iu,nl lo die iliscovni _\ id A
iiiciiia, tin- liilc of tlic Uxitod Silatcs lo a vciv large
portion of the Coapt of ilo- Paritic Ocean lo be well
founded ; nor hit re theii turn ah/e to itscerlai» that an:i
othergor»rmuent than SfHtin has made ctaiui (o ar t imrt
of it, front L'ujte I torn to the .sixtieth degree of .aorta
latitude.”
It is now beyond doubt, that another go
vernment than Spain lays claim to a part of
that ten itory South of the sixtieth degrte of
.\oiih latitude, viz. to the fifty first degree, be
ing a ditVerence of nine degrees only !
ll this decree, therefore, appearing just at
this moment, has no other elVee.t, it gives in -
terest to the proceedings in Congress relative
t«* a settlement at the mouth of Columbia
uver. 1; will not he a matter of surpiise to
us, that it have the effect to procure the pas
sage, in Congress, of an act to authorize the
establishment of a post at the mouth of the
Columbia, which, however earnestly propos
ed by the mover, has, hitherto, hardly been
‘•criouly entertained by the House whose at
tention has been called to it.
With regard to the true northern limit to
the claim ofTiie I .'uited States on that coast,
Humid any difference finally appear to exist
between Russia and the L’nitcd States, there
can la* "o doubt of its being amicably settled
the moment it becomes a point of discussion
between tiie two governments. When Russia
and the Culled States fall out, it will not
he about any tiling so unimportant, we hope,
an the nominal title to a degree or two of al
most mi-discovered land. [.\*</. lot.

Mr. Rochester called for the consideration of
tlie resolution introduced l»y him on Monthly
requesting information from the Treasury De
partment relative to the sales of pulilic Lands.
The house agreed to consider the same.
V, hereupon Mr. Rochester observed, that
he had been induced to oiler the resolution
from a persuasion that the information which
it proposed to obtain would have a material
hearing upon the hill lately reported to the
house by the honorable the chairman of the
committee on public lands entitled “ A bill
for the relief of purchasers,” £cc. which had
been read twice, and was, together with an
amendment proposed by the member from
Illinois and another amendment from the gen
tlemen from Kentucky, (Mr. Hardin,) com
mitted some days .since to a committee of
the whole house. Air. It. said that he consid
ered the proposed extension of further indul
gence to such of the indebted purchasers as
had not availed themselves of the provisions
ol the act of Congress, passed March 2, 1821,
as presenting a question of no little impor
tance, and as one on which all possible, light
ought to he thrown, on which account he was
pleased to fiml that the friends of the measure
had evinced no disposition to urge its consid
eration hastily upon the. house. In drafting
tin: resolution, he (Mr. 1L). had recourse to the
terms of the 8th section of the act of 2d
March, 1821, by which it was made the duty
of tiie several Registers and Receivers to
make correct reports, &tc. within three months
Irom doth Sept. last. This clause, he thu’t,
had been evidently incorporated in the act
with a view to the securing and providing a
correct detailed statement of the practical
operation of the act of 2d March, 1821, for
the information of the present Congress, and
the better to enable them to decide upon
tin: proper ulterior policy to be pursued in
relation to tin: subject in question. The time,
he said, within which these reports were to
he made by the several Registers and Receiv
ers had now nearly elapsed, and there, was
every probability (bat the Treasury Depart
ment was now in possession of the whole id’
them, or would he before the expiration of the
present week, provided those oillcers had at
• I . I A _ . i... 1 . • l . i
M.IIU* II IW Ill'll UlMC UIIIIU3 , Cl III I 111(11
they had attended to those duties, he (Mr. R.)
hud no reason whatever to doubt.
Mr. H. continued, that on a question of the
adoption of a resolution simply calling for in
formation, it would perhaps tie somew hat out
of the usual order to dwell upon the mvrits of
a bill previously committed ; he would, how
ever, remind the house, that the receipts in
to the Treasury for the year arising from
the nett proceeds of public land sales, had fall
en short about .•tuo.ooi) dollars of what they
had been estimated at by the Secretary of
the Treasury iu his annual report made at the
second session of the iast Congress; that this
deficit might perhaps he ascribed in part to
the general stagnation of business, the. failure
of some banks, and the consequent derange
ment of the paper currency of the country;
but lie imagined that it was chiefly attribu
table to the operation of the law of March
last.
What lie now desired was to have this op
eration spread before the house in detail, as
doubtless by a minute attention to the prac
tical effects of the past law, a more, cot reel es
timate might be made of the probable future
results from continuing its provisions in force
—that, for his part, he should be glad to arrive
at a conclusion, that the extension of those pro
visions, to such purchasers as had not availed
themselves of them, would prove not only
just and equitable to the purchasers, hut also
advantageous to the nation—that he had, how
ever, his misgivings on the subject, and lie
trusted that, if Congress did re-enact the for
mer law, it would he so guarded in its terms,
as not to operate as an extinguisher to every
motive which delinquent debtors might have
t<> future punctuality.
He thought that there were other considera
tions w hi* It made the required information desir
able, hut lie for I lore to enlarge upon them. The
call was not calculated to give the Secretary
much trouble in complying with it, and he
hoped the resolution w ould he adopted.
After some verbal amendments suggested
by Messrs. APCoji and II t»kln, w hich were
assented to by the mover, the question was
taken th reon, and the resolution adopted.
Mr. 'Puckrr, of Virginia, railed for the consi
deration of the it .olution he had submitted
ou a former day, so to ;liter the si 11 iiug rule.*
of the house, as to admit upon the Hour the
present anil past on tubers of tlie Lcgi-daturi s
of the several states.
The house agreed to consider tin resolution
u lien
Mr. Tucker explained his views in relation
to the subject. It was his object to confer
upon the members of the legislatures of our
state sovereignties the same privileges and pre
rogatives that are granted to the members of
foreign legislatures. He thought it derogato
ry to our national character—ami inconsistent
with that self-respect which tl.c functionaries
of a free government should entertain, to com
municate to the members of a foreign legisla
ture those, privileges which we denied to our
own. By the rules of the house, as they now
stand, more than one hundred individuals,
other than members, are privileged to come
within the bar: and yet it is found that there
are rarely more than live or six at a time who
avail themselves of the privilege.
The idea, therefore, of any inconvenience
resulting from the proposed change of the
rule, was evidently fallacious. It was left sub
ject to the direction of the. Speaker—and, if
at any time it should he found inconvenient in
its operation, it was competent for the House
to restore the rule as it stands at present.—
It was notorious, Mr. T. remarked, that the
gallery did not answer the purpose that was
expected from it. It was not a place where
spectators could hear. Stenographers were
indeed admitted, but their reports were often
incorrect, and frequently and often necessari
ly so, from tiie relative situation of the speak
er and the reporter, and the difficulty of hear
ing, even within the bar. Yet it was very de
sirable that all practicable publicity should he
given to the proceedings of the House—and,
as it might he done wit limit inconvenience,
lie hoped tile resolution would lie adopted.
Mr. Taylor thought that .the manner pro
posed by the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr.
'I'.) was the worst manner of doing a bad thing.
If the selection or permission was made to
devolve on the Speaker, it was very evident
that it would never be practicable to refuse in
any case where application was made by a
member of the house. It would, in fact, lie
come a matter of right to all those who were
contemplated by t lit* extension of the rule, to
come upon the floor. Ifitistohe thus ex
tended, where shall vve stop? For the last
ten years we have been continually extending
the rule. During the late war the Unveruor
of the state of New \ ork amended Congress,
with his aids; but neither were introduced into
il,.. .. I...II M'l.i.r,._1 .
so tar extended as to admit all those to whom
Congress should vote thanks for their services.
To preserve analogy and etiquette, it was then
deemed necessary still more to extend the per
mission to the Commanders in Chief. After
this time we were visited by a British Peer,
who had taken great interest in the concerns
of the not them fur trade, (the Earl ofSelkirk )
To accomplish his introduction, the rule of the
House was altered so as to admit members of
a foreign legislature ; but he believed the rule
was made with special reference to that indi
vidual, and had never been practically extend
ed to any other.
Bat, if the rule is enlarged, where v\ ill you
stop? Von now admit Judges, and \\hy not
Chancellors and Judges of the Supreme
Courts in the respective slates? They were
surely not less in dignity than those whom t hi
resolution proposes to admit. Nor is this all.
Members of this and the other House often
bring with them to the seat of government
their wives and their daughters, and you send
these to the galleries, and at the same time
propose to admit on the Ilnur of the house all
those who at any time had obtained a seat in
either branch of the legislative body of any
state. He believed the measure would impose
an invidious duty on the presiding olliccr—
would lie incorrect, unequal, and inconvenient
in its operation, and therefore Imped itfwouitl
not prevail.
Mr. Baldwin made a few remarks in sup
port of the resolution, hut was not distinctly
heard by the reporter, lie was understood,
generally, to observe, that he was aware the rule
of the House had been nfir*-. oi.uigud in rela
tion to the subject, but that he had never kno wu
any inconvenience to result from the extension.
He deemed it altogether improper that a pri
vilege ol this kind should he conferred on a
member of the provincial legislatures of Nova
Scotia and New Brunswick, and at the same
time lie denied to the legislators of Pennsyl
vania and Massachusetts. He was disposed to
extend the rule, especially as he saw no possi
ble evil or inconvenience tiiat could grow out
of it.
Mr. Rich moved to amend the resolution by
striking out the words “ or have been,” so as
to confine the privilege to the benefit of mem
bers for tin; time being.
Mr. Overslrttl was opposed to the amend
ment. The legislatures of many of the stales
meet during the session of Congress, so that
the amendment would defeat the principal ob
ject of the resolution.
Mr. Rucker made a few remarks in reply
to Mr. Taylor—and particularly answered the
lUIPSfion. Where sll.lll IVe dim? In- mtlinir it
should he at tliever> moment that an incon
venience should arise from an extension of the
privilege.
Mr. Randolph remarked, that, in respect to
the rights of individual states, and to the atten
tion to be paid to state legislatures, he would
profess to yield to no man in that House, or
in any other. Ii had been evinced by every
act of bis life. Hut he did not feel that th.it
respect called lor an adoption, either of the
resolution, nr of the amendment; for if the ex
tension i-> puce made, it will he difficult,not to
say impossible, afterwards to alter it. When
those, for whose benefit the rule is enlarged,
shall avail themselves of it, where is (he law
of courtesy that shall subsequently exclude
them ? It had been correctly remarked, that
it would cast an invidious responsibility on
the Chair ;so invidious that it would become,
(to use the expression,) a non-user ; for the
Chair would never lie disposed to assume the
unwelcome prerogative. And when, said Mr.
K. we are called upon to admit the ex-mem
bers of the state legislatures upon the floor of
this House, shall we consign to the cold and
cheerless galleries the fairest, and best, and
dearest part of creation ? Courteous, indeed,
is the rule, that shall exclude these from our
fireside, and at the same time, cherish and in
dulge nur own sex in a participation of all the
comforts which this House can afford. (The
Speaker here remarked, that the question
was simply on„the motion of amendment.)—
Agreed, said Mr. It. and I oppose the resolu
tion w hether amended or not. Legislation is
not a matter of courtesy, and, without the re
motest disrespect to the Chair, he would ob
serve, that there was already disorder enough
in the House, without laying in a new stock
Of materials to increase it. Additional num
bers would necessarily have that effect—and
the states of Virginia and Maryland could fur
nish enough, within the rule proposed, to fill
tiie hall.
The question was then taken on the amend
ment, and lost.
Mr. Aeliton, of Maryland, opposed the re
solution. He hoped that it would not be a
dopted, for other reasons than those that had
been offered. He contended that the rule, as
now proposed, was mlciil.itcd to create dis
tinctions iu the government unknown to the
constitution. By that iiislnii.iiut equal rigiiij
and privileg e were extended to all; und the
citizen who may have tilled an ullice is sup
posed, after his trust i* discharged, to return
to the body of bis fellow citizens, disrobed of
his oilic in I character. lie is then entitled to
no greater privilege or distinction than those
around him. For this reason, independent of
all considerations of convenience, he was op
posed to the resolution.
The question was then taken, and the re
solution was negatived.
Tin* engrossed hill for tiie relief of Isaac
Finch was then read the third time and passed.
A communication from the Navy Hospital
Commissioners, was then read, referred to the
committee on commerce, and ordered to be
printed.
The House then resolved itself into a com
mittee of the w hole on the report of the com
mittee of Claims, unfavorable to the petition
of Kli Hart, (Mr. Hill in the chair;) when
Mr. Tracy moved to amend the resolution
attached to the report hy striking therefrom
tilt* word not.
The motion was supported hy Mr. Tracy,
and opposed hy Mr. Rich, when tin: question
was taken thereon and carried, and the com
mittee rose and reported the resolution as a
niended.
A report of the Commissioner ofthoPub
I lie Buildings on the subject of the property
of tin* United States in the city of Washing

New York, Dec. 20.—The British sloop of

out that she was dispatched in pursuit of a
British officer who had ffi d from England with
a large snm of money belonging to the govern

in the British navy, and was entrusted with
from twenty to thirty thousand pounds ster
