read by our patriotic children with won
der, as a page exhibiting the strangest
most unaccountable, and most reckless
tergiversation which the whole volume:
. at, t
the most conspicuous
mocratic ranks, has spoken of this new
Exchequer bill in quite as strong terms as
Mrl Mangum has. II is speech upon the
subject preceded that of Mr. Mangum; in
it are many strong expressions; we quote
only the following: r
"What became of the President, ac
cording to this plan! He was the great
fountain of authority; he was to be at the
head of a great moneyed itwutution; and
if the bill should succeed, the speculators
and politicians of the whole country would
hi coming here to court the President or
his Secretary for loans just as eagerly as
men now crowded to Washington for
offices. Protesting always that no re
marks he should now make had tho re
motest application to President Tyler, he
pat the case of an ambitious and dangerous
man being at tho head of the Government
in A.ronBtirr being in the Chair and
let him have it in bis power to control the
whole of the public revenue; let him have
at his disposal all tho money of the Peo
ple, with which to purchaw the services
of political partisans on the eve ofa great
Presidential election, and what would be
come of the national liberty! All they
had formerly heard about a union of the
piMciaml tho sword was mere idle de
clamation; but here wa that uniun ln
ret oh e how much it ovght to have cost
ti bury hiui. "Should he have been bu
ried like a dog. or not buried at all by tbe
Government, but his body left 10 bis fami
ly! II begged his fellow Democrats, as
recorded, or it would be closed and passed j he said, noi to imitate iht example of their
with loathinff and repuffnance. The Pco
pie had been utterly disappointed. The
measure proposed by their friends in Con
gress as the only panacea for the public
illsliad been offered, adopted, and vetoed
at the Extra Session. And here Mr. M.
must be suffered to say, that, although
voting for that measure, he had always
felt great doubt in regard to its immtdtule
efficiency. He had his own misgivings
as to iu effecting tit once all that good
which it friends in their sanguine mo
ments promised themselves, and, perhaps
thoughtlessly, promised to others. He
had never been a friend to banks; he had
never touched a bank by any vote of his
nntil last summer. The entire system
was bottomed on such principles that it
appeared to him to carry its own death
within itself. Tho measure which tlte
Whigs hail proposed, he believed, might
indeed mitigate, and for a time repress the
n ils connected with it. It might willr
political opponents, but to strive to con
duct the campaign on principles calcu
lated to elevate, not madden iha public
mind. Fur his part, though professing to
be a good Democrat, be trusted he should
ever act like a gentleman and a Christian
in all th relations of life. He then pro
ceeded at length to give his opinion as to
ihe grounds upon4 which the campaign
should be conducted by way of a cue to
the whtde party quotingfjrom memory)
reports from the Slate ad Treamry De
par mints, and Wise's speech, and filial
ly concluded, after having said in effect,
that the Democratic pnrty. wis not defeat
ed in North Carolina by " hard cider and
con-kiiif," but by being out humbug
ged! They bad deserted the proper and
honorable mode of political warfare, and
had attempted tv humbug the people, but
the Whigs had out-humtmgged iliem!
-The dilivery of this speech seemed to
i ke th liole asiemblagc all tuc$, and
memorials .were presented,' remonstrating
against the repeal or postponement of the
Bankrupt Law. Mr. Evans," of Maine,
delivered his views on the Exchequer
bill.' On Tuesday, a resolution was in
troduced by Mr. Calhoun, and adopted,
requesting information from the Execu
tive concerning the mutiny tn board die
Creole, and the part taken by the British
authorities in that affair. Mr. Walker
addressed the Senate on the reference of
the Exchequer bill and report.' He spoke
in very high terms of the report; and
contrary to the general impression, at
tributed the whole of it to the Secretary
of the Treasury; said he would have
scorned lo put his name to any document
of which he was not the author. Mr.
Walker liked -the Sub-Treasury feature.
and would vote fur tlte exchange cur
rency feature by way of compromise; but
would not vote for any other feature. On
Wednesday, Mr. Clay, Mr. Calhoun, Mr.
Berrien, and other eenators, presented me
morials remonstrating against the repeal
or postponement of the Bankrupt law.
Mr. Clay said he had been requested to
ray something in behalf of their object;
but all he could say was, that the petition
ers had his profound sympathies for their
suffering condition, and his deep regret at
the state of things which threatened the
repeal of the bankrupt bill at both ends of
the capitol. Mr. Calhoun also said he
fult most sensibly for the petitioners, and
went further, he said, and regarded their
sufferings more, because they were owing
to a bank circulation, which had been
caused by the acts of the General and
State Governments. Their condition de
manded sympathy; but he could not listen
to their appeal, because it would not miti
gate their sufferings. Pass this law, and
one hundred millions of property would
be brought under tho hammer. Mr. C.
tegarded the bankrupt law as monstrously
unconstitutional, and as calculated even
tually to sap the rights of the states. Mr.
Berrien argued, very briefly, the' con
stitutionality of the law, iu reply to Mr.
Calhoun. The petitions were referred
to the committee on the judiciary. Mr.
Merrick and Mr. Sevier addressed the
Senate in favor of the Exchequer bill
On Thursday, a very large number of
memorials were presented, carnesdy re
monstrating against any interference with
the bankrupt law by Congress. Mr. Ben
ton addressed the Senate at length on the
Exchequer bill. ' He opposed it in strong
terms. He compared it to the famous
South Sea Bubble," which during the ,
administration of Sir Robert Walpole, was
near bringing ruin on Great Britain.' He
believed that there was much more dan
ger in a government currency like this,
than in the currency of a National Bank.
He would in this, he said, adopt the lan
guage oi Alexander Hamilton; Uie danger
was greater, as the government was great-(
er titan individuals. Mr. Benton having
closed, the question was taken, and the
report was unanimously referred to the
select committee of nine members, in con
formity to the motion of Mr. Tallmadge.
The Senate then adjourned to Monday,

gentleman, for the sum of $102. Mr.
Ufner, on the receipt of this information,
enclosed the note in a letter, from which
we extract the following remarks, as
characteristic of true greatness. Being
satisfied that yon cannot pay me, and that
you would if you could, I hand you your
note enclosed, cancelled. A man in your
situation is apt to grow misanthropic and
unhappy. Tha "world averts its kindly
face from him, and shuns him -some men
because he is. poor, and some fearing a
favor might be asked. To hold a fellow
, man and brother enthralled and depress
ed, and liitis affecting him and his de
pendent children, injuriously, is against
my feelings, and contrary lo my sense of
duty."
Touching Incident ' During hit speech
in Faneuil 1111 on Christmas evening.
Mr. Hawkini related an instance of the
terrible effects of intemperance, which
had recently come tinder his observation
in Worcester coun'y. A victim of this
appetite had driven bis f-mity from bis
miserable habitation, and had parted with
every thing he could sell, uutd only a
faithful dog war left who kept his nrntcr
from freezing by lying on his feel at
night. The wretched man, to grati'y the
demon of thirst thai raged within htm.
killed his dog. sold bis skin to a tanner,
and with the proceeds went to bit but,
and held his Usl revel in drunkenness,
snd in the morning was found dead, from
intemperance and odd. The faithful dog
was no longer there to keep warmth and
life in him, and when the roioner came
to htdd the inquest, ihe only food found in
the place was half a pint of meal.
Our Legislature lias adjourned af
ter having done as little for th people as
was ever done in a twp months session be
fore by a Lecislature professing to be en
lightened. Tney talked nearly the whole
session about th links, appointed com
mittees to investigate frauds, introduced
bills to wind them up, and after having
seriously injured thrtr credit, which his
causeu exenang 10 rise six per ccn. au
journed and left thetn in a worse eondi
tion than theylwere before. So much lot
our wise legislation on Banks. . Wa hope
the peo;de will SMn perceive that the
Legisuture is utterly incompetent to ma
nage a system of Banking.
