Mr. (tianger ro«e and said he held in his hands I eeversl petitions signed by citizens of the highe* i respectability, relating to a subject, which, lor -e several months, had produced much exci e merit In j ihe western part of ihi« State. It was known to most of the members of 'he House that a person nsmed Wm. Morgan who was supposed >o have written, and to be then a bout publishing, a book disclosing the -eercisof the institution of freemasonry, was in the month of September Isst, taken from (he village of Batavia, under color of legal process, ami lodged in the jail of the village of Canandaigua, from which con finement he was subsequently liberated, and forci «* • V tft • ^ f Vn • f ♦ ♦ -v V uuia said Morgan, had not been teeu, not lua late beeo certainly ascertained. This statement he was authorised in making, from the fart that sever'd persons engaged in thi^. outrage had been arras' ed. had pl*ad guilt* to the i'-dictments found against them, and ate now suffering in the jail of the coun ty ol Ontario, the penalties ot the law. Since the period of the«e convictions, a belief } gained consideration that Morgan muat have been put tfi death. Agitated and alarmed by a transac tion so-extraordinary, the citizens of many of the weslarn village* and coutvie*, have a-sembled in public meetings, and have appointed committees for ihe-investigation of ibis transaction. Thoaf members of these commi'teee who pro ceeded iar\he frontier, have become satisfied that the life of Morgan had been taken, but they repre sent that so ex'ensive is this combination, that the ordinary process of our courts is not competent to reach the many branches of this conspiracy, and by the papers I now present, they a-k this house to strengthen the arm of justice in such manner as to reach this case. Mr G- said he was not prepared fo express in bis place any opinion upon the facts assumed in the me morial, so far as they related to the murder of this tin* luitunate man. The evidences upon which these a verments are made have not yet been transmitted: be ho.vever felt called on to say, that there is much reason to believe that this conspiracy for the sei zure and disposition of Morgan, though not em bracing as many person-, wa- as wide spread as had been the honest indignation and exri'rinent produced by this unparalleled outrage upon the liberties, if not upon the life of one of our citi zens. Mr. G. railed for the reading of the petitions] which were read and referred to the committee on courts of justise. 1'roui the N«w V«uk Commercial Ait*crti«rr.

ENOCH LINCOLN. The great anJ all engros-ing topic of the admin i-tration presses is the influence which Virginia exercises in the affairs of the nation. This is by no means a new theme. It was urged in all the ea-tern states in the tunes of strong political ex c lement which followed the fi st Presidential term of Mr. Jeffeison; it was the watchword of the old federal party in Massachusetts, strange that it should be of those who have shaken >,ff or pietend to have done so, the 'euets of that par'yand avow themselves professor# of a contrary cieed. Though young at the time, the fact is strongly imprinted on our recollection, that pamphlc# on the eve of every election were dispersed over the country warning the people against Virginia influence; Virginia politics—Virginia nominations- Virginia every thing. A certain letter of Pierce Kutler to one ol hi* constituent# wan sure to be dragged in as a | roof of the assertion that -he was to be the Austria of America. All the states were declared to be little better than tributaries; having no voice ot iheir own, but moving the mere pulpets of her will Some twenty years have passed away since I the«e glo .my auguries were rife— & for a large part of the time the presidential chair has been h-ldby Virginians born and bred Has the nation rulTered under their management? Have they done aught >\hich ha* appeared tyranical or unconstitutional ? No, wa answer, the government has been energetic, iavors have been dealt out with an impartial hand, the constitution ha* never been infringed, the nation has continued | ropero'ja, free and hap py. We mention these thing* ro ahow that the arguments « ielded against the inf! lence of Virginia, are werk and fallacious, the -uspicion and jealou sy attempted to be excited of her, mean and con temptible. l’hs influence of Virginia in the councils of the nation, will continue a* long a* the fills the benthe* allotted to her representation, with in telligence, virtue, and patriotism. It will no', it cannot continue longer.
