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

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

Ina the Senate, this mtornitag, a itesolu
tio submtitted by AIr. Claty, of Alabamia,
mmnie days since, was takein til. Th le Res
ilution was an inq~uiry of the Secretary of
the Treasury whether additiotnal clerks had
een appotisted in the Land Oite flu reani
ince the -ith Marcha last, and ifso, the can

AMr. Smith opposed the Resolution as
ncalled for and improper.
Mr. Clay replied at some length. insis

the situation of our several diplomatic
functionarics abroad, which could only
have been attained by-laborious investiga
tion, though, doubtless, iL was a labor of
love.
Mr. Buchanan in reply, expressed his
satisfaction that ihe Senator from Souh
Carolina ladna again biekled onl his armor,
after the inglorious ee he had indulged in,
for some lime, but hathought his remarks
in relation to the extrvagauce of the lior

thought it was a poor evidence of reform

Mr. Ilenton in reply to Mr. Preston said,
lie would endeavor to eonirast facts with
fancy, and as an evidesee of the liberality
(of the dominant party, read Mr. Webster's
letter to the Prcsident, Which the latter

(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? Can
