In the House the resolution to close the
debate on the Bank bill on Friday next at 12 o'clock,, came up, and after various ineffectual a.tempts to modify it by extend ing the time it was adopted-ayes 104, Does 97. The Bank bill was then taken up, and Mr. Botis nade a very silly speech an the constitutionality of the measure. This he said, bad been decided by the Su preme Court, which was the tribunal con stitutionaily authorized to expound the Constitutin, and the President, having sworn to observe it, was bound by his outh to take the exposition of the Court, wbat - ever might he his individual opinion upon the subject. The hill was furtlieradvoca ted during the sitting by Mesars. Prollit, Milton Brown, Gamble and Alford, and posed by Mcssm. Brown of Tennessee, eller, McKeou and Hubbard. At nine o'clock the House adjourned. WAsIsNUTO., Aug. 5. In the Senate, this morning. Mr. Ben ton presented the proceedingsor a meettng in Fauquier County, Virgiita, in relation to the measures of the Extra Session, which they unqualifiedly condemn and as sort the right of repeal, should a Bank he chartered, and express their determination never to rest until its repeal be accomplish ed. Mr. B. expressed his entire concur rence in the views or the meetin. and to give a-t opportunity for other Senators to examine the Resolutions. he moved that they might be printed. This motion was opposed by Mr. White. of Indiana, on the ground that it was disrespectful to the ma jority. Mr. Archer, though opposed to the Res olutions. hoped there would be on oppos: tion to printing then. Mr. Clay rose, evidently in ill temper. and moved to lay the Resolution to print on the table. lic was requested by sever al Senators to withdraw his motion, but refused to do so, and the vote being takens, it was carried-Ayes 21, Noes 20. Mr. Benton then moved to lake up the Resolutions, and Mr. Clay in angry tone called him to order. An animated dehate followed on the'point of order, whether a vote to lay a motion to print on the tatlle. carried with it the subject matter. ii which Mr. Clay maintained the affirmiati'e. andI Messrs. Calhoun atndl Kil:; the ue-itive. ofthe proposition, and she Chair degcde' against the Dictator. This scene whicih excited much interest, from the skill with which the discussion was managed, ended in a burst of general merriment, when Mr. Cuthbert rose, and in the ardent manner for which he is so remarkable, read Mr. Clay a lecture on the impropriety of the exercise of the warmth of temper he had exhibited. The merriment increased to a general roar of laughter, whet Mr. Clay, whose irritation was increased by his dis. comfiture in the debate, expressed his wil lingness to compare tcnpcrs with the Sen ator rrom Georgia. Mr. Benton then gave noice that lie would move totake up the Resolution eve ry morning, until lie car'ied it. The bill to charter the District Banks, with power to issue irredeetmable pa'per, was passed. The Fortification 1ill was passed. The remainder of the day was spent in discussing the bill making an up propriation fron the Treasury to the Navy eusioners-the efort on one side being 20 rO~ the law of 1837,. which all agreed proper administration or the fund. While the question otn engrossmng the bill was pending, a motion of adjournmenmtient was carred. In the House. the Fiscal Bank Bill was discussed dnring the sitting from 10 in the morning until II at night. Mr. Marshall, of Kentucky, inoved to strike out the "comp~romise" section, and substitute it by a provision giving ;he tun restricted power or branching. This w il probably iJe carried. The speeches of Messrs. WVise and Hlun ter were especially able-thme latter genitle man is rapidly rising to atn elevated ratiik among the statesmian of our country. TIhe eoorts of nearly all the Whaig speaker, have been directed to prove the conistion tionality of a llank. This is evidently im tended for the benenit of the occupaut of the White hlouse; but M r. Tyler na-, opm ions on this subvject, which were torumed before some of his prceun would-he in structors saw the lighit. You many set it down as certain as anay thinag cain he which is in the womb of futurity, that the llanik Bill now before Congress, if it pnsses that body; will be vetoedl by 'he P'resident. Wasuiio-ros, Augue! ( In the Senate this mnornin::. upon the reading of the journal it was discoveredl to be nlot exactly a "falbfu! record" of the proceedings on the polit of order yes'er day, and on Mr. Cailhoun's motion it wa amended. The Cause for tile 'lhscrepiancy between the facts and the record wvas soon made apparent. On yesterda~y, as I ia ted, Mr. lientoa presented a piaper con taining the proceedings of a metmg in re latiotn to thme measurcs of the extra sessonva, which he moved to have printed. Mr Clny moved to lay the motion to prinit on the table, which was carried. On M:- llen ton then proceeding to address the Senate on the subject of the paper, he was called to order by Mr. Clay, at whose inmstaince ilie Chiar decided that laying a nmotion to prit on the table, also laid the subject nmatter on the table. Mr. Calhon appealed fronm this decision, and was going on to discuss the point of order, whenm Mr. Clay c-alled him to order. Mr. Calhoun asked him to state his point of os der. Mr. Clay wit h much arrogance insisted on his taking his seat, and requested the Chair to call him to order on the ground that an aippeal on a point oforder was not debatable. Mr. Calhoun very composedly kept the floor, and asked for the decision of the Chair on the poitt of order. The Chatir very promtly decided it in favour of Mr. Cal houn, who thten went otn at some length to discuss the poinit of order, utiil the expira tion of the mnorninig hour. Thiu morninag after the journal was read. the Chair said that the question before the Setnate was the1 second point of order made by Mr. Clay on Mr. Calhoun, when in fact, he had yes terday decided that question, lIe was re minded by seve-ral Seniators of the fact, but he chose to be so obsiuse in recollec tion, as to make it apparent that he had been tempered with during last ev'ening, and that the falsification of thejournal was ..l. . art of tbe scheme to reverse his de cisiun. lie nad no recollection, therefore Df having. decided the question yesterday and gave a directly countrary decision to day, than an appeal on a point of order is not a privileged question, and is subject to a motion to lay it on the table, which must he decided without debate. Air. Calhoun then appealed from that decision, and in a burst of indignant eloquence exposed the insidious attempt by this collateral move ment to introduce the gag law into the Senate. The morning hour having expi red, the debate was interrupted, and the Senate took tp the Naval Pension hill, and all attenips at repealing tie law of 1637 having failed. Mr. Calhoun moved ati amendment that no new na mes should be put on fie Pension roll under the act. of iS39. This was voted down by the easting vote of 31r. Southard. Mr. Man gmn, at first, stood ipl in its favor, but at the instance of 1r. Preston, set down and voted against it. A limitation of the law to the enI of the next session of Congress wasthen proposed by ir. luchanan which was carried against the earnest renonstran ces of Mr. Ilumington, Mr. Choate and some others, who there is mitch reason to su--pect have a dee) interest in th.- perpet nation of tie abuses of the law of 1837. The bill was then passed. The bill for the Distribution of the proceeds of the Pub lic Lands was then taken up, and Air. Smith of Indiana, aildressed the Senate at great length itn favor of the bill. Th'e Sen atu then went into executive session, and in about two hours after adjourned. I learn there was an attempt to confirm a nomination ofan Abolitionist, (and have reasoni to suppo e it was .1r. Everett.) but ittfiing it too hazardons to put to the rote, it was hung upon the satte pg as those of Bela 11adger, Penrose and 5 ne others. it tle ilonse the lBank bill was passed -ayes 12S, navs 27. FEvery aiendnet was prointly voteif down, in pursuance of a previous deciioi in caucns, 1ad the hill wa. pa-,d priely in the shape i came from tI e Setnate. The Dank Hill is pa'sed ly a viote of 128 ti 97. Cx:Ictly ill the shapIe it cale fromt the Seinse. A. miotiona ini Cutnit tee, was mtnaile lv 31 r. Adamts, to strike out lie cloipromime~ sectiun introduced lv Ar. Clay in thei Senaie-some rive or six Whig. only voted w ith him, and some forty lemn ocrats. The truth is, the Whigs were afraid to send the hill back again to the Seiate by adding any nmendient tio it, for fear it should then fail; and the Demo crats were equally averse to any amend tmcuts-wi-bmig the hill to go 11) the exe cutive, and tot be stopped in the Senate. So both sides were gratified in tie Bill passing exactly as it came from tile Setine. All now look to the veto. The Whigs fear it, but do not believe that T% ler has nerve enough ti exercise it. The Demo crats except it, but have also their feam of the President'% lirmness. The Virginians w Io are in his confidence, have no doubt ofthe Bill being vetoed. I have no doubt miyielf, the veto will be ut,aand that the di'solutionof the Whi ois atand -a week wi tell.

The qluestioni was thetn takent ont the appeal romt the deccisiomn oif thte Chair, hy Mr. henton, and after the decision was miate rially modilled, it was sustained biy a party vote. fThe Senaite then adjourtned. In the fliiinne a tmotion was made to take ny ithe hill for the repeal of the ide petndemi Tireasury. This was rejectedi lives be, itue, rS.

DJUST.\1 l.NVi' A T ISAL1.1Il R.-MlS, TAKES COltiECTElD. (Concluded) A word or two more on the true nature r1the difficulty, into which the doings of te Atbolitionists threw the South and the haracter of its removal, and I shall close. say their doings; for their opinions never istressed us. We concede to theim and to i men most readily the right of holding vhat opinions they please. It was their foings, then, that caused the difr-culy. i ean by their doings, theirdeuunciatory arngutage, their circular, in which we were :harged with crimes, of which we were imconseious, and their unscriptural re luirement of us to do that which was be yond their authority to demand of us, as he condition of the continuance of their vis ble fellowship. Now it is evident, that if all the Northern members of Convention were of the same mind with Abolitionists, Our contsexion would necessarily be dissol ved. Whether they were or not, we were uninformed. This was the precise difficul ty, and so stated in the Corresponding let ter, and resolution of the Edgefield Baptiss Association, both which articles I had the honor to prepare. Such also was the view entertaired by the State Convention, as expressed in her preamble and resolutions, which I had also the honor to present to that Body. Now if the Body ofour Breth retn at the North disapproved of these do ings of the Abolitionisis, and would give us proof of such disapproval, so that we should be satisfied that they were aot Ab olitiuists, then the dilliculty would be re moved. Our Northern brethren did of ford this proof amply and unequivocally in the Preamble and resolutions alluded to ahove. The exclusion of Abolitionists from the Board by their votes in connex ion with the votes of the South, added a other evidence, that they were ao Aboli tiunists. And in this light only is the opin ion, w hich had been so generally expressed, that Aholitionis:s should be excluded from the Board. entitled to any weight. For if we could sit with them in Convention, we could act with them on the Board. But, as membership in Convention is acqnir ed by the payment of a given sum, with out regard to cbristian or church fellow ship, there could he no expression of the feelings of the members of the Body. in relerence to the doings or the Abolitionists by any question of admission to, or exclu sion, fromt seats in Convention. It could only be expressed in not placing them on the Board, and by explicit assurance, both which were done. It has been said, that the same expurgation should have been applied to all the Boards of our General inttitutions. This is the fact, if I remem her right, in the Boards of the Sunday School and Publication Society. and the American & Foreign Bible Society. It is iadmtitted that the Board of the A, B. 11. Mision Society has not undergone this ex purgation. B3ut let it he understood that its organization requires of it, immediately after its appointment, the election of a committee of seven, to whom the whole bu s'ness is committed fur the year, and that the meetings of that Society are annual, so that the prevalence of Abolition itflu ence in that Society must be small under buch circumsetces, wien it is kneeft that the committee has nota ingte A buliionist on it. and thte Board itself but two. WVitht these evtdececs from our leading Northiera brethren, that they were not Abo litionists, the questrio witht the South, as it n ppeareil to their Delegation, was: Can we renain in the Coenvetntior: with the few Atbolit iotnista there, thtough their treatment of its hans not been of te kindest sorn?
