i,. determinied to have. Maine will concede her Territory in qxchange for a conventional right to navigate the St. John's River,. to- its mouth, or she might give the Territory of that River, in exchange for the Territory west of it. The timber, concerning which so much noise is made, will be of little use to Maine, without the navigation ofthe St.John's. Our Government has assumed the ground. that it will support the r hts of Maine, as they have decided, by both Houses of Congrees, unless .Maine herself should consent to different terms, or unless a different decision should be made by a new empire,to whom Mr. Vau Buren is willing to submit the case. But, with the assent of Maine, the matter can be settled by neotiation, at Lon dori. Even in the event o disagreement, Frapce would probably offer her mediation, as Englandoffered hers, between ur and France. So, we shall get through the session, without straining our resources by a preparation for war. rom the National IteUwenuer, March 30. TREASURY NOTE BILL In debate on the Treasury Note Bill in the House of Representatives, March 27, Mr. Pickens made a few observations, which were not prepared in time for Saturday's paper, but have been since handed into the office, as fol lows: Mr. Pickens rose and said: Mr. Chairman, I do not rise to inflict a speech, but merey to join in the request of the gentleman from New York (Mr. Monroe) that we should, according to the-general understanding entered into yes terday, before our adjournment, take the bill out of Committee, and dispose of it finally to night. in some way or other. I rise to make an appeal to the good sense of the modrate portion of allparties in this House. This is a simpe bill authorizing the issue of Treasury notes to the amount offive millions of dollars. We have beard the statements or mem bers of the Committee of Ways and Means, as to the wants of the Government. Is there a man here who is not prepared to give his vote? Are we to sit here day after day, and night after night, listening to the miserable hackneyed par ty slang of the day upon a bill, on the merits of which every man here is prepared to ve his voteI My constitution is unprepa to go through with these midnight scenes of confu sion, and, I was going to say, of dis-race. I do hope that the moderate men of l parties will combine to take this bill out ofcommittee. and'to pass or reject it, Sir, it is no time to sit hereand dwell upon political newspaper para graphs, and the miserable attacks and slanders *ing out of the mere partisan contests ofthe y0. We havelately heardand all [am sure with deep pain, die present critical position which we occupy in regard to a foreign Power, and, resul from which, great and serious ques tionswi press upon us.. I trust in God that the peace ofthe country can be preserved, but it is no time forus to waste our days and nights in wrangling over these little matters, local in their integpst, when there is such a great and momentops question which may be pressed up on the consideration of this country. I was prepared to have voted against this bill,and was disposed to do so, because I believe it to be an unsafe precedent in legislation. I have so said before, but not from any constitutional objec tions. But if an exigency occurs, if the nece* sity is palpable and plain, I will givethe Gov ernment my support. It they need their credit to maintain the Government, I am prepared to give it. I solemnly believe, from the develop ments of the last few weeks, that it may be ne cessary, I am prepared to give my vote for this bill under the circumstances in which the. country is placed; but I do not say that there is any immediate danger of a conflict. I trust in God, 'not;, but I wilL say that it is by no means ceiiain that the peaceo the country can be pre sered, and I am for riving the Government strength to support itsell in any emergency that I*siheiai in the requestorthe gentlemai from,6.w Yor,'(Mr. Monroe,) and I hope and trtsst ,lt gentlemen are prepared to put an end tohe dicussion, and, at all events, to take the bill out of committee. FaoM FJ.oantA.-The steamer Genera! Clinch, Capt. Brooke arrived at this port vesterday, from Garey's Ferry Black Creek, (Florida,) having on board, as aussengers, Capt. F. Searle, Assistant Qtrarter Master, Dis. J. B. Wells, and -. R. Arcold, all of the U. S. Army ; also two Hospital Nurses. We learn that Col. Twiggs had return ed from a llfteen days scout up the St. John's River, with the Blood Hounds, which, it is stated, were found to be per fetly useless-all atternpts to induce them to take the trail of the Indians proving nsuccessful. Two Indians were discovered in a boat, and shot-one of them said to be a brother of Sam Jones-Chaleston Courier. The Court of Sessions and Common Pleas, for Barnwell District, commenced its session, on Monday, the 30th March, at 10 o'clock, and adjourned on Friday, the 3d April, at half-past 11 o'clock, his Honor, Judge. Gantt, presiding. The fol lowing statement will show the number of eases on the dockets for trial. No. of cases for trial, - - - 748 *' " Tried, - - - 493 Notice of appeal but in one case. Thus it will be seen that his Honor had to encounter a docket, formidable for the number of eases upon it; formidable also, because a great number of those eases were contested. But the Judge commen ced, ad continued his duties with a zeal and industry whieb enable him to get through the whole bttsiness in the course offour days, and thereby to confer an essential benefit upon the district, and toi reflect great honor upon himself.-lbid. Accident.-The steam packet James Adams, Ham, started this morning for Columbia, and proceeed as far as the bar, owing to the strong N. E. gale, she was compelled to -return-on her way back, off the lower end of the middle ground, came in contact with pilot boat iorithat was proceeding to sea, and stove in the larboard side, when she imme diately sunk.

Well, 'we hope it will now be discovered that when one government assumes the right of violating the laws of nations, they hold a weapon which cuts more than one way. If the British wish to monopolize the trade with Africa all they have to do is to suspect the vessels of all. other nations of favoring the Slave Trade.-Chaleston Courier. Poverty to a remarkhble degree posses ses the power of self-perpetuation. "The EDGEFIELD C. H. THuRSDAY, APaRi 16,1840. Death of Gov. Nob.-A letter received by a gentleman in this place, gives an ac count of the death of Gov. Noble. We are informed that he died of dropsy in the chest, on Tuesday the 7th inst. The long and valuable public services of this gentleman, are well known to all. He is cut ofl'in the midst of his usefulness. At the time of his decease, he was in the prime of life, and the full vigor of intellect. He was emphatically. an honest politician and a good man. We hope that some one competent to the task, will prepare a me moir of this distinguished public servant. In common with the whole State,we deep ly deplore his untimely death. MUNICIPAx. ELEcTIoN.-At an election held in this place, on the 11th instant, William 1. Simpkins was elected War den of Edgefield, to fill the vacancy occa sioned by the removal of A. V. Mont gomery. . We are indebted to the Hon. F. W. Pickens, for a pamphlet copy of the "Speech of Mr. Bynum, of North Caro lina, on the resolution of Mr. Thompson of South Carolina. on the subject of Abo lition." This speech is one of considera ble length and evinces great research. It vindicates the Democratic party from the charge of abolition. No impartial man can read it and fail to be convinced, that the Democrats, as a party, are laboring with the most strenuous effortd, to put down those political incendiaries, the abo litionists. TuE WEATHE.-The fifth of this month was a bright and beautiful day. There was a delightful calmness in the air, and every thing augured well for the future. But alas ! " A change came o'er the spirit" of April, and the' bright sunshine was suc ceeded by dark clouds, mnists, and copi ous bhiowers of rain. For several days during the past week, the rain poured down almost continuously, and the weath er very much resembled that of a wintry month. Vegetation was greatly retarded, and the young ,crops were much injured. We have heard it said, that "April showers, Make May flowers." A fig for such showers, say we, and such cool breezes, as " have fanned our cheek !" Give us the glorious sun-shiue, the warm breath of summer, and away with the mist in scotia born'! We carenot for the Hyperborean winds which roar so music ally in the ears of some. We have had enough of them. We fervently pray for the return of the delightful vernal season, so celebrated by -the poets, but so rarely enjoyed. Since penning the above, the sky his brightened, and the Rain King has fled howling away. Several days since, we read the Speech of Mr. Duncan,-of Ohio, "on the bill to authorize the. issue of Treasury Notes." Much the largest portion of the speech, is taken up with the history of the Flor ida War, from its commencement to the present time. In reading the remarks of Mr. Duncan, we were forcibly reminded of the celebrated debate de omni bu rebus et guibusdan aliia. which took place in the Senate, some years since, and in which our own Hayne and Mr. Webster partici~ pated. in. these days of speech making, it is not at all necessary for an orator to confine himself to his text. He is privileged to fly ofr from his subject, and discourse on any thing that seemeth to him proper. Many take the liberty, to speak on any thing else, but the subject before them. This is using the freedom of speech with a vengeance. We refer our readers to the Prospectus of the " New Yorker," which will be seen in another column. We have seen some numbers of this paper recently, and have found in them, an agreeable melange of Po lite Literature, Politics, News, &c. There is always to be found in this paper a page of Music~. This must recommend it to those who have "music in their souls," es pecially the ladies. SPEECH oP Ma. CALIoUN.-IWe pub lish to-day, the first partof the Speech of Mr. Calhoun, on this resolutions which he introduced in the Sente on the 13th of March. These resolutions muist com mend themselves to the approval of all parties, especially, to those who desire the perpetuity of our Union, and the pre servation of the rights of the Southern States. The decision of the British Gov ernment, in the case of the negroes. on board the Enterprise, should not be tamely submitted to by our Government. The dearest rights of the South have been in fringed, palpably and flagrantly, and she will never acquiesce in such a decision. We subjoin the comments of two lead ing papers, on the Speech of Mr. Cal houn. The Globe says ." Mr. Calhoun's Speech upon the prin ciples invoniced in the negntin.tion with Great Britain about the slaves withheld from the Enterprise, is one. of the nmost remarkable of thesessio..~ I has received. high and deserved encomiums frem.mcti of all parties. Its lucid reasonigs arejr-. .resistible; and the a 'ninaidersion upon the inconsistent attitudes assumed by Great Britain, not merely in relation to. her controversy with us, but in regard. ?A her assumed position before the .world, upon the subject of slavery, compared with her actual condition,.is not less just than severe. The New York Evening Star, another able and leading journal, says " Letters from Washington unite in giving a high and important charaeter to the speech delivered by Mr. Calhoun on the 13th. It was not on the abstract doe trines of the Abolitionists, as some sup. pose, nor the constitutional rights of the slave States, bus of a more general charac ter, predicated on the rights of American vessels driven by stress of weather itto friendly ports; and he maintained the ju risdiction of the State to which such ves sel belongs, over her rights and interests, which can !ose none of those rights by be ing forced into a friendly or neutral port. This was carried out by reference to the case of the brig Enterprise, the Enco mium, and the Comet, vessels sailing from one State to another State, having slaves on board, sent from one plantation to an other, and released by the British authori ties of the islands, into the ports of which these vessels were driven by stress of weather. It is true, that'after many years of negotiation, the British Government has seen the expediency and justice in making indemnity to the owners; but th6'Minis try will not avow the doctrine, and estaibi lish the principle that our vessels carrying domestic Slaves from one State to another, shall be released with their slaves, ifdriv en by stress of weather, into their ports. This right must be avowed openly and unequivocally. It will never do to per mit the Abolitionists of the North to con federate against Southern rights gtaran tied by the Constitution, and at the same time to find them backed in their position by the practices of the British Govern ment touching the safety of Southern prop erty, accidentally thrown into their ports. Mr.-Calhoun's position is not disputed , and carried out with firmness and temper, will show the British Government the n6 cessity of abstaining in every respect, from being mingled up or participating in est rying out the doctrines of this vexed ques' ton." The South Carolinian of the 10th inst., says:-An electionof Intendant and War dens, for Columbia, for the ensuing year, was made on Monday, the 6th inst., The following persons were elected: Intendant.-Robert W. Giblies, M.D. Wardens.-1st Ward, R. H. Goodwyn. Henry Lyons. 2d Ward, W. B. Stanley, John Fisher. 3d Ward, A. H.-Gladden, A. Kirk. We are sorryt .osee that Cdol.

Should Col. Gadsden, however, see fit to accept the honorable post assigned him, he will bear with him the well wishes of a large circle of true friends-Quincy SentineL The New York American of Friday afternoon says that about 5,000 out of the 13,009 spurious shares of Kentucky Bank stock, issued by the Cashier of the Schayl kill Bank, in Philadelphia, have been traced, principally, in that, city. It is believed that these, will not be acknowled ged by the Bank of Kentucky.. Winter at the North.-We learn by passengers from Albany, that the storm of rain and sleet which we had here on Tues day last, was there a regular snow storm, was about a foot on a level. The. Boston papers also speak of a snow storm in that vicinity, at the same time. Here the ground was barely covered. The North ampiton (Mass) Courier, says that the snow in Windsor, Goshen, Chesterfieldand Peru is still from twoto seven feet deep.

Hamburg, S. C., April 7, 1840. 11 $120 Reward. W AS Stolen from my house, in Edgefield District, S. C , on the 16th inst., a .ne, heavy, Silver Lever Watch, with a gold key, attachedbyablack, watercoloredribbon,which was used as a guard-chain. The Watcb has a high chrystal, with a small flat circle on'the top, and two or three small notches 1- think, where it joins the case. The Watch was taken by a notorious thief, in the presence of my Mother, late in the eve ning of the day above mentioned. He passes under various assumed names. Sometimes he calls hiinself Stephen Bright, alias Tom Jones. alias Woodsbury. He is dark complected, re sembling a Spniard, has a heavy, black best,' high, broad cheek bones, chin rather tapering. He is about 5 feet, 5 to 8 inches high, and is square shouldered. He is rather of a bony. look. This thief travels on public roads as,*. foot traveller, and on neighborhood roads, g9F-. erally carries in his hand a bridle, which, he' says is for the purpose of catching estray ho ses.
