Cass' Speech on Ik Collins Line-, lieu Jersey und Commodore Stockton. Washinotow, May 9. Mr. Clay (rs finkm very rapidly. Ha it not troubled wilh any particular disease, but suffers from general debility, and you moat not bo surprised, therefore, to bear at any , moment of his final dissolution. He knows that lie is dvinjj speak of it sometimes' quit jocosely, and, when told the other day by Dr. Jackson, of Philadelphia, that he should die without being tho least conscious of it, and that, too, at no distant period, he observed, with a smile, that "ho should like to know the precise hour, merely as a mat ter of personnl gratification to him." He then took a cijiar, and smoked it with real pusto. The other day he drew a cheek on Messrs. Corcoran & Riggs for $500, in ns firm a hand as ever, arid it) his usuul clear nnd leijible style. Ha wrote the whole check without a formula. In a wont, Mr. Clay is the same man he nlwuys was tho tame statesman, politician and tribuneonly with less physical force. His big soul has worn the body threadbare, and, peeping through the seams, is anxiously watching for a new vestment. He is not only per fectly conscious of his own position, but of the position of the country, which he loves wilh unbounded affection. Among the pub lic men who have oftenest railed and chut ted with Mr. Clay during his protracted ill ness, I must not forget to mention Lewis Com. Gen. Cass' speech on tho Collins line of steamers has placed that sublet completely on national grounds and is every way worthy of the enlarged views of the experienced, and far sighted statesman. The opposition to the Collins line originates, in a great mea sure with officers of tho United States Navy, though tho whole steam fleet of tho United Slates does not carry more than 37 puns, ull told. A feeling has of lata sprung up between the Navy and the United Stales mail steam service, very much reseiiiblins that which has always existed between the olR cers of the Unyal Navy of England and those of the British East India service. This is much to be regretted. The amend ment will pass the Senate by a full two third vote. The State of New Jersey being claimed by many candidates for tho Presidency on her second choice, I deem it not indiscreet to say that, as far as Commodore Stockton is concerned, she will go for Uen. Cass from first to last. So says the gallant old Com modore himself, and ha is likely to know. i do not have this from hearsay ; mind you. Commodore Stockton is a frank, high-minded, generous man, who has no idea of enter ing the parlor through the kitchen door, and scorns all underhand combinations and pet tifogging in politics. Me in just what one might expect from a gallant American tar, who mounted his sailors in California, and taught them to unhorse the Mexican Lan cers. On Tuesday, Mr. Clingman. of North Car olina, will come out in a letter explanatory of bis position in regard to the Presidency. He is ready to support any candidate, Whig or Democratic, who will endorse the Com promise and the Fugitive Slave Law as a finality, though he, himself, did not vote for the Compromise in tho last Congress. .. -- 1 t . i . . .. . .. ., THE AMEPJCA1T.

BANK OF NORTHUMBERLAND. I The Union Times nd the Lewisbursr LVcmocrat it appears came out with a ftonunciamento against the Bank of Nor thumberland a few weeks since. This for midable attack, somehow or other, escaped Mir observation, and we most probably shoula have remained entirely ignorant of this important event, if a reply in one of our exchanges had not brought it under our eye. On one -account we regret the cir cumstance very much. We fear Mr. Priest ley, the Cashier, has had his slumbers dis turbed most prodigiously, and as for Mr Taggart the President, we should not won der if he had lost at least a hundred pounds, neat weight, of his aldermanic proportions, on account of this terrible onslaught. But, seriously, boys you had better spike your blunderbusses. Though guerilla warfare may be, temporarily, profitable in a politi cal contest, it wont pay when aimed at came like this.

While at Northumberland a few day since, we called to 6ee some of the fine cat tle belonging to Mr. A. E. Kapp. He has two full blooded Durham cows wilh their calves, in his stable, at present, that are well worth a visit from those who are fond of fine stock. One of these cows came from the State of New York, the other was pur chased at the late Agricultural Fair at liar risburz, by Mr. Kapp. The calf of the York State cow was 13 weeks old, plump. sleek and silky in its appearance, and about as large as an ordinary heifer of a year old. The other was three weeks old, a fine calf also. Mr. Kapp will be apt to come in for a share of the prizes at the next State Fair, if we are not incorrect in our judgment. STATE APPROPRIATION.

Vacancy tor a Doctor. Greiner, the Indian agent in New Mexico, wrote home on the 31st of March, lhat he knew of an opening foi an enterprising physician a vacancy had happened, and he told how : One of the Eutaws on the San Juan River was taken sick, and an Indian doctor from the Rio Verde was called in to attend him Owing to ihe strength of the disease, or to the weakness of the prescription of the doc tor, the patient died and was buried. After the funeral the doctor whs taken by the friends of the deceased, tied up, shot and scalped his wife's hair wns cut off, his house burned, containing all Ins property, and all his animals killed. This is the law among these Indians, regulating doctors. The vacancy is yet unfilled. Col. Frkmont is Limbo. Letters have been received from Col. Fremont, dated London, April 13, staling that on tho even ing of the 8ih of April, hu was arrested by a party of rudu officers and locked up for twenty-four hours, at the suit of unknown persons, for liabilities amounting to $70,000, growing out of the military operations in California. From an article in the New York Herald, it is very clear lhat the U. S. Government is responsible for these claims, and that Col. F. has about as much to do wilh them as the man in the moon. Union County Mutual Fihe Insu rance Company. This Company was in corporated by the last Legislature, and was organized a few days since by the election of John Gundy as President.

In the House, the Homestead Hill has made somo further progress, nnd there is really some probability of its passage. Whether tho Senate will have lime to act, or whether it will not be talked to death in that body, with fifty oilier measures, is ex. tremely doubtful. In spite of the few re. fractory movements in Ihe Whig party, it is now pretty well ascertained that the South ern Whigs will cave in, and support Win- field Scott, under any-circumstances. The action of the Union Whigs, in the Cotton Stales, seems to warrant this belief, which for a day or two past has become general in Washington, It Is rumored here, in Washington, and I believe truly, that the President intends writing a letter to the effect that he will not allow bis name to be used iisa candidate for the Presidency, unless the Whigs, in Convention ussembled, will first endorse surprised, as Philadelphia has heretofore exhibited such a degree of narrow minded- ness in regard to this improvement, lhat we never did expect much from her. If the city thinks the country should make the road in which she has ten times more interest than ourselves, or any portion of the country, she will be much mistaken. Some of the city papers regret this very much, as they were anxious to "pre-occupy the ground of the Susquehanna route" now certain to be made mostly by Baltimore capital. If the object is merely to "pre occupy" in order to prevent the construc tion of the Susquehanna Rail Road, we are heartily glad that the subscription was not made. We should like much, very much, OIF"" A pair of silver spectacles was lost on the road between this place and George town. The finder will please leave them at this office. A Substantial Platform.

SENATOR STOCKTON. an anecdote a few weeks what he has done during his administration to see the road from Sunbury to Erie made of the Government, in reyaid to the Com promise and the Fugitive Slave Law, and then endorse the Compromise and the Slave Law as a finality. This is extremely pro dent and sagacious, on the pan of Mr. Fill more, and louks mightily to the formation of an independent ticket. 1 do not believe, however, lhat such a third party would ma- leiially after ihe issue between the iwo Susquehanna though we confess we have not had much faith in the manner in which we have been previously treated by those who had the management of that enterprise. We have, however, always had great and abid ing faith in the route, which the unerring hand of nature has located. We knew the route would command the parties of Whins ami Uemoerats, which "aae ana travel, noiwiinsianoiug an me will be quite as hot and furious this fall as attempts made to divert it to another course, on any previous occasion. J here are men North and South ready to endorso Gen. Scott's orthodoxy on lh Compromise, and with such an endorsement, the South will not oppose him, after his nomination, espe cially if, in his letter accepting the nomina tion, he should come out fully with a decla rator! of principles. The people of this County are all favor ably disposed to the Sunbury and Erie road, .but like all other bodies and individuals, they favor most that which will be of the greatest interest to them. They know they have a greater interest at stake in the Susquehanna rood, as that road will place us immediately in connection with Phila delphia and Baltimore.

A New Orleans correspondent of the Natchez Courier, doubts its correctness and gives the following version of the story. He says: I rather think, Ihongh 1 may be mistaken, that Mr. Wise has claimed laurels for the Commodore, which are the property of an other. Shorilv after the last war, Decatur was at Gibraltar, and rjappenetl, together wilh one of his officers, Alex. Wadsworlh, to dine in company with some English officers of the garrison. During the conversation, Wadswnrth made some remark to which De eatnr, who was his most intimate friend, re plied, by saying in jest, "O, Wadsworth, you lie, you know you do." After dinner when the wine began to circulate freely, Wads- worth requested one of the English officers to drink wHh him. The latter declinedand his e.atnple was followed by his compan ions, tin mis waiiswortn rose ami leu me table, and was followed by Decatur. The next day they demanded an explanation, and the answer was, that English officers could not consent lo lake wins with a man who had allowed himself lo be railed a liar, whe ther in jest or earnest, without resenting it. Wadsworlh ' immediately challenged the whole of them, six in number, and the chal lenge wis accepted. The parlies met oui- side Ihe town, and Wadsworlh shot three of his antagonists successively, but was in his turn wounded by Ihe fourth. Decatur then held him in bis arms while he shot the fifth The sixth came forward and made an apolo. gyonbebalfof himself and friends, slating thai they were perfectly satisfied with Mr. Wadsworth's conduct as a gentleman and man of honor. None of Ihe wounds proved mortal, and afterwards tbe British officers were as polite a set of men as one would wish to see. This circumstance may have j-iven rio to (lit) story about Coin.

By this operation, $50,000 will be saved annually to the Commonwealth. So much for Governor Bioler's policy. OIF" The weather for a week past has been delightful.

Boston, May 8. Intelligence was received here this morning, of a serious acciJcnt which befel Hon. Daniel Webster. Whilst riding near Marshfield, he was thrown from his carriage, strikingyipon the head and rfghl shoulder with such stunning force as to be insensible for several minutes. His injuries, though severe, are fortunately not dangerous, but that they will likely detain him at Marsh field some days.
