reply to the speeches mado lst evening.
Alluding to the declaration of Mr. Wise, that he would hereafter offerno oppostion, Mr.A. said, that was about the noisest thing Mr. Wise hadjever done. After disposing of Mr. Wise and his speech, Mr. Holmes had to take.it. M.r. A. compared him to Orlando Furisde 'with his sword cutting and slashing every thing before him. He thep 'talked about matters in general re maining inyour ports : Mr. Holmes, in answer to a question rose, and went into particulars in defence of the law in question,. He said, if he were compelled to choose, he would prefer the peaceful dissolution ol the Union even y othe abrogation of that law. Mr. Adams thought this a dreadful de elaration,1.aud[ dwelt some time upon. the enormity of it.-He concluded by avowing hiai.itention to suppoit the Union'and. COnstitution. He said he was not an ab olitionist in the modern sense of the term, but, one of the same stamp as Mr. Jeffer soq. s r. Holmes next claimed the floor amidst shouts of-order,' "go on," etc. The disposition of the house was to al low him to proceed ; but Mr.: Redding kept.'objeeting; so that it was necessary to have a suspension of the rules, the debate not being strictly in order. Mr. Campbell made that motion,-but Mr. Holmes d redhmrn to withdraw it. Ile said he did no desire to snake a speech in reply to Mr. Adams, but merely to repily to the personal part of that member's re marks in which he compared i in (Mr. H.) to Oclando Furioso. *Mr. Holmes then proeceuled, but was not allowed to finish his sentence, lit voice being drowned by the loud calls to order. What be attemtpted to say was, that there teas. one'being that the sword of Orlando could not hurt ; and that was a malicious old imp, whose'strength lay in a single hair of his head.; he was invulnerable, and had been made so by a compact with Satan, on the express.condition that he should d all the mischief he could to the day of his death' A morecutting and withering application to .Mr. Adams, from his own story, could not be well conceived. Mr. -Balser said be believed these resn lotions from Massachusetts were, in sub stance, aproposition to dissolve the Union.. He: therefore 'moveI .to lay them on he table.' This motion failed.

You did not entirely understand in the South, the reasons tihy the New York politicians were so eager for the meeting of the National Convention, to determine who should be the candidate of rho Demo e ratic party for the Presidency, on last No vember. The proceediogs in Congress are now daily develotng them. Mr. Rhett' 1l.solution tore ol one veil; and showed the-fact, they would 'be-glad to conceal, that there are not more than a half dozen SDemocrats at the most, from New York, ' who are' not Pr-oteclive Tariff men-and the .preisentation of Abolition Petitions yesterday and to-dayjis tearing off another, and shewing that they are in affiliation with the abolitionists. The' truth of the matter is as follows, as I have good reason to belieire from pretty good authority. The Democratic party at the t wo previ eus Congressional Elections, have found great difficulty in- ooping wvith the Whigs. The Delegation come nearly equally divi ded'to Congress. It was supposed to be of great importance to-Mr. Van Boron's prospects for the Presidency,that the State should be carried by a decided' majority, after his previous disastrous overthrowv by twenty thousand, by Gen. Harrison. 'To do this, they determined to abandon the principles of the Democratic party on two great points-the Tariff-and Abolition. Bly this means, keeping their own party. their candidates would gain largely from she Whigs, by the aid of Abolitionists and Protective Tariff'men. They wvent there *fore. against the 21st Rule and a Revenue 'Tariff. They succeeded.' Both of these interests saw the advantage, after having already got the Whigs committed to their. policy, to break.down the opposition of the Democratic party. by getting them also committed to them. Acco'rdingly by the aid of those interests, the Democrats tri umphed over the Whigs and elected three fourths of the Delegation to the present Congress. Now, if they could have had the Presi dential nomination, by the Convention, determined in November before Congress met, of course, this cuaning but unprinci pled policy would have been completely successful. The secret of their election would have been known, and Mir. Van Buren's popularity and the interests of the Democratic party and the success of its principles, might have been supposed to be implicated in his nominaiion and sup port. But, unfortunately, you in South Carolina, 5y your dogged obstinacy, over throw this scheme. TChe meeting of the Convention, in November, first started by arrangement in Tennessee, fell through. Discovery was now unavailable; and they determined to prepare the party by degrees for it. Hence the Legislature Caucus which first nominated Mr. Van Buren for the Presidency, omitted altogether in its enumeration of Democralic principles, the subject of the Tariff. This was to inti mate, that it was a matter of no conse quence. Next, in the Syracuse Conven tion, having made it a matter of indifer euce, they took ground on the other side, and declare for a Protective Tw.riff. And now, here they are in Congress-Whigs to all intents and purposes both on this subject and abolition, and set dead against the Osmncratic party and the South. Here is New York politics for you. The consequence is, we are in the midst of an Abolition agitation, with a Democratic ma jority of sixty in the House: and if we carry a Revenue Tarif through, it will not be by more than a half dozen votes. The effect ofall this on Mr. Van Buren's pros. pects for the Presidency, you cannot fail to perceive; and to ward off its fatal el'ects on the South, will require its highest ener gies. Corrcspondcncc of the Charleston Conrier. WASI-NGTN,-Dec. 26. It is strongly surmised that the Van Bn ren majority of the House have deter mined to rescind the 21st Ru:e, excluding abolition petitions. The majority against Mr. Adams' motion to abolish the rule. some weeks ago, was only three. and pro ceedings since that time have reduced it. Mr. A. also stated n his speech that many who voted for the -ube had told him pri vately that they were opposed to it, and, in favor of giving it tip. The Committee appointed to revive the rules have agreed to recommend to the House a resolution abolishing the 21st rule, (so called,) on the ground that it does not restrict members, in elect, from offering and debating papers touching slavery; that it takes up too much tiine to combat the opponents of the rule; and that it has the appearance at least, of infringing the right of petition. The true reason for the movement is, that it is just now very em barrassing to the friends of Mr. Van Bu ren. in the Northern and Western States. We shall see what the Southern members will do in regard to the matter. Mr. Adams is to have a Select Commit tee on his Massachusetts Resolutions against the representation of the three fifths of the slaves. The Committee was not announced to-day, though it was ex pected. The House is anxious tosee what sort of a report Mr. Adams will make on the subject. It is a masttet- ofsurprise that sucia a piroposition should come from a Legislative body ; it is in fact a proposi tion to repeal the Constitution. The Senate did little or no business to day. Some petitions were presente. Mr. Barrow's resolution callitig for the corresponidence andl information in refer ence to the claims of American citizens on Mexico. was adopted. T1he resolution oif Mr. Benton. asking for the proceedings of the Court Martial in the ease of P. C. Buell, was adoptc-1, Atr. Benton stating 'lint the ease was -so extra ordinary as to justify the interference of Cotngress. TheScnte spent some time in executive sesson. In the House. to-day, Mtr. King, of N. Y., moved to refer a petition on the subject of postage to the Committee ont Post Of flee atdd Post Roads, with instructions mo abolish the franking privilege. The pe tition was rcfurred, but without the instruc tiotns. Mr. Wilkins moved the suspension of the rules ini ordlet to olfer a resolution, in strnting the Cotm:nittee on Nuaval A ffairs to report a bill for the construction of wvar steanmers on the Ohio. f-jr thte purpose otf harbor defence, or to be used as vessels ol war at sea, or to be employed in the reve nue service. Ri-jected. Mr. Adams mnved that the Ihouse gn inito Commnit tee of the WVhole on the Pres ident's message. Lost. The States were called in order for pe titions. A fter goitng through wvith the call, Massachusetts was again called to order. Mr. Adatms then presented a petition, praying the atbolition of slavery and the slave trade in the District of Colunmbia; the separation of the petiiioners from all connection with slavery ; that commet-cial relations be established w'ith Hayti ; and that neither -Texas tner Florida, nor any new slave State be admitted into the Un ion. The Speaker decided that the petition was excluded by the 21st rule. He ad mitted that a portion of it was admissible. but he woumt not separate it into distinct parts. Hie rejected it as a whole. Mr Adams appealed from the decision. The ploint he made was that one or more of the prayers was not especially excluded by the rule. The yeas and nays wvere taken on the appeal, and the decision of the Chair w'as ffirmed-yeas 105, nays 40. The Commit tees were called for reports. Mr. Parmenter, from the Committee on Naval Affairs, reported a bill to authiorize the President to direct transfers o: the navy appropriation in certain cases. Mr. P. said that the bill required no new app'ro prialion. He hoped it would lie o the ta ble, and not be committed, in which casc it would not he reached for months. His object was to enable the President to transfer sotme appropriatiotns, in order to provide for the continuance of repairs and equipments, wvhich fiad been suspended. Mr. Cave onsonn opposedel ,obanect of v,. the bill, Jt destroyed the ebeck the mouse bad on appropriations. Mr. Levy objected to the bill-that it enabled the government to defeat the appropriations for-the Navy Yard at -Pensacola. - Funds granted by Congress for that.Navy Yard had been re peatedly taken for other objects, under this power to transfer. Mr. Hale, of New Hampshire, hoped this matter would he subjected to some scrutiny. There was no department of the public service that needed watching and pruning more than the navy service. The expenditure had risen, in a few years, from three or four millions to nine mtil lions-a sum nearly equal to what it was when the navy was gainsng laurels on the lakes and the ocean,:during the late wear. -Mr. Black, of Ga., was in favor of i. creasing and sustaining the Navy, instead of cutting it down It wasjjthe most im port ant arm of national defence, and must be chiefly relied upon in the time of war. The bill was committed. Mr. Ilale otrered a resolution calling for information as to . the expense of the [lome Squadron, the amount of service they have rendered, &c., was agreed to. A resolution wasoffered that the House proceed at one o'clock, on Thursday next. to elect a Postmaster for this ilouse. The previous question was moved, and no ruu"m voting, amotion to adjourn was made, which was rejected. The House would neither adjourn, nor go on with any business, not an unusual case The llonse having refused to ad journ by yeas and nays, adjourned by acclamation.

LEGISLATIVE. RESOLUTIONS Passed the late Session of the Legislature. The Cornmitiee on Iuternal Inp:ove rnents, to whom was referred the "Memo rial of the Charleston, Louisville, and Cin ciuttati Rail Road Company, praying for some measure to obtain from Congress a remission to the Georgia Rail Roads of the duty on Rail Road Iron, which has been extended to the other Roads in the United States," ask leave to Report: That they have considered the memorial submitted to them, and are of opinion that it is every way desirable that the views of your me morialists should be carried into effect. As they are not aware of any means at hand calculated to promote the objects of your memorialists, better than urging our Rep resentatives in Congress to movo in a mat ter so intimately connected with the intei estsof our Rail Road, and the commercial prosperity and the general welfare of our country, they respectfully recommend the adoption of the following Resolutions : Resolved, That in the opinion of this General Assembly. the best interests of the country require a revision and modification of the existing tariff of duties on foreign morchandize and produce, and more par ticularly as regards the duties upon Rail Road Iron. 2. Resolved, That the Senators and Representatives of this State, in Congress, he, and they are, requested to use their best efforts to procure an -exemption from duty of all Rail Road Iron,:to be used in the construction of Rail Roads already projected. 3. Rcsoh-ed, That our Senators ani Representatives in Conttress be requested to lay these Resolutions before Congress. 4. Resolved, That his E xcellency the Governor be reqguested to forward a copy or the above Resolutiotns to each of our Seuators and Representatives i-a Congress. The Comm ittee on Federal Relations, to whlom was referred certain Resolutions front AIlabamna, accompanyitng the Gov ernor's Message, on the subject of the na sumpition of State Debts by the General Government, have considered the same, anid beg leave to report : that South Car olina cordially responds to the Resolutions of Alabama on this suibject. Nothing is more calculated to degrade the sovereign ty of the Si ates, than dlependence upon the funds of-the General Government for the payment of their deibts. -It is nektnowledg in;; their own inability. The States thus admit their degradation. A s one of those States, Sotith Carolina admits no such in ability to meet her own engagemnents, andl she is not willing that her sister States shlould be degraded by any suich itmputa tions. [Fr(oml wh~a: lnnd conal the liiied States pay the debts or he States? T'he only sources are- ihe National Domain, or the lIevenue from taxation. The opin ion heretofore expressedl by this Legisla ture, in relation to the public de-'nain. is utnalteredl. I t is a National fund, bestowed' for National puirposes, and to diveri it to the payment of the debts of such nthrifty States as have got in dlebt beyond what prudenco will sanction, is an unauthorized disposition of this source of National in come. The example woultd be peculinrly pernicious-the best secur-ity again'-t er~ travagance is thte dluty of paying the debts contracted, either by States or i ndividluals. Every State is nble, by a manly and hon orable resort to State taxation, to pay all its debts ; and the lesson, thus t aught to the people, will be a wholesome restriction on future extravagatnce. Your Coinmiittee therefore beg leave to report the following Resolutions: Resolved, That the assumption of the debts of the States, by the United States, would degrade the sovereignty of the States, and be a precedent fatal to their rights and indepetndence. Resolved, That the diversion of the Na tional Domain to the payment of State dlets would be a perversion of the ex pressed object, for which it was ceded to the Union-would be had faith to the States, who ceded it, and a derelection of the trust reposed in the Natioual Govern ment. Resolred. That the above Resolutions be communicated to the Governors of the States. and to oturrepresentauives in Con gress, requesting them to lay the same be fore that body. Honesty-Obsoluhe; a term formerly used in the case of a man who had paid for his newspapers an~d the coat on his backl MISCELLAIVEOUS. From the Temperance Advocate. To THE FalENDs oF TEMPhaANCE IN .SOU-rH CAROLINA. In obedience to the Resolution of the Convention in Spartanburg, which direc ted the Executive Committee of the State Temperance Society to fix the time, at which the Convention should assemble in Charleston, I am instructed to say tlft the first Tuesday in Fehuary next, the 16th day of the Month has been fixed. Many considerations make it very im portant. that every Temperance Society should then. and there he fully represented. It is first, I think, to be remembere:, that we have held two conventions, in the up per country, in which that and the middle sections of the State, have been fully rep. resented, while the lower country, and es pecially Charleston and the sea-board Dis tricts have been partially represented. The great object ofsuch Conventions is to make all the friends of Temperance acquainted at least witlh the respective local views. A petsonal knowledge obtained by dele gates of each other, generally brings this about in the most satisfactory manner. To Charleston, as a point of great and common interest of the State, all its citizens look, and ins many instances, she gives tone to public sentiment, and in natters of taste and fashion she certainly wields great pow er. A visit to the city to meet our couman friends, and to contribute our mite to aid her in directing the public sentiment, and in inclining the habits ofthe people to Tem perance, will certainly be both useful and interesting. The oftener we meet, the more zeal is thereby excited In the great work of reform. The impulse given to the cause of ''em porance, by the Conventions at Spartan burg and Greenville, and the meetings of he State Society in Columbia, .an hardly be estimated. We have. since our great meeting at Greenville, literally strode on with a giant's step. Let a full represen tation frot every Society attend at Charla tot, and 1S44 i ill record a nobler triumph than 42 or 43. So too, by often mingling together in Convention, each delegate becomes pos sessed of a vast fund of information. He returns to his constituents full. of zeal, and with his memory stored with facts, and his mind enlightened, and is thus prepared to become an efficient laborer for the sobriety and good of his fellow men. Men and Brethren, let us be tip and do ing. As long as we keep moving, so long we shall coutinue to triumph. According to a Resolution of the State Society, the raito of representation for each Society is fixed as follows: of and under one hundred members, two delegates, and where a Society has more than an hun dred members, it will he entitled, in addi tion to the two which the first hundred will give, to an additional delegate fur every additional hundred members. Presidents of Societies are respectftlly asked to convene their Societies as soon as possible, read to them this Circular, and ask them to appoint delegates. - JOIN BELTONO'NEAL. President of the State Temp. Society. Correspondence of the U. S. Gazette.. BALTIMoRto., Dec. 19. The papers will advise you of a most during and astounding robbery ofthe Ex change Office of Messrs Carter, Gover & Co. - Theso gentlemen had built, at a heavy expense, a brick iron lined vault, which was secured by two heavy iron toors, and were locked with combination leeks. T1he robbers etferted an entrance through the front door by picking the lock anid then cotmmenced operations. They seemed to have bad a brace and bits, and drilled holes of about three inches diame ter', just over the key hole of the locks. In this way they exposetd the interior of the locks to view atnd easily effected an enratrne into the vatults. Both doors were opened in the same way and atn iron chest in the interior of the vault was ente red in the same way. Fortunately, as is their cuistom, Messrs. Carter & Co. had removed their money trunk to a bank otn Saturday night and on this occasion the trunk coutained 8-24,289. Iniside the vault were some silver change and some batnk nottes, int al about $250. This the burglats took of course. ilhis robbery proves that there is little safety in iron chests atid iron doors.

Lovely Woman-An articlii tnufacts erod hy millinrs Horrible Scene-Tne Loter Day-Saints. -On Thurday the 23d' Nov. a trigiral occurrencence took place at Crewi, in Cheshire, which has caused the liveliest emotions of pity, anger .and, surprise throughout the whole of that now popu lous neighborhood. It is well known' that the grand Junction Railway Company, have erected immense works at Crewe, and have in their employmont between 400 and 500 workmen. Among these are men of- all shades of religious opinions and some of them are Mormonites, Netter known as "latter day saints." The priest of the order is a blacksmi.h, of the name of Cartwright, and among the devotees is a fanatic named Pugmire. also a smith, or engineer. The latter n as married to a respectable woman of about 30 years of age, who had borne him three children, and was within three months of her next confinement. She had steadily refused to adopt the fanatical opinions of her husband, and much altercation had ensued in consequence. Worn out, how ever, with his repeated solicitations, and his continued declarations that unless she submitted to be baptised into the order she would be eternally lost, she declared her intention to one of her neighbors, to obey her husband's wishes,. being satisfied, as she said, that unless she did so "she shqld never have any more peace with him. On Thursday, the 23d uit., at 8 o'clock at night, the poor worn-out creature was taken by her husband and the blacksmith priest, down to the riverbelow the works, was denuded of all her clothing, except a small flannel singlet, and, noitnithstan ding her interesting situation these wretch ed fanatics,.after muttering some incan tations, plunged her into the stream ! The night was dreadfully cold and dark, and, in consequence of the late heavy rains, the river was running at a great rate. and was much higher than the ordi nary. The priest having hold of her naked arm, unfbrtunately let go his grasp, and the current running like a mill race, im mediately carried her away, and it being pitch dark she was instantly overwhelmed by the boiling flood and drowned. The husband walked home with-the greatest deliberation aid nonchalance, and told his neighbors what had occured; and, af ter seating himself in a chair. rolled him self in flannel, and declared his conviction "that it was the will of God that she should be drowned," adding. "that it was the weakness of her faith that caused it, but that be was satisfied that she was in glory." From the Maine Farmer. The Elevatin of Mechanics.-It bas been strange to us that the mechanics should ever he thought less deserving of respect than any other of the professions. -This has heen the case and even is now, to a certain extent. It is owing to this fact. They have neglected themselves. By not improving their minds and by not respecting themselves as they ought, they have suffered others to station thetm selves higher in public estimation than their own class, and of course they were entitled to less consideration. The moment they began, as a distinct class to improve themselves, by associa ting and establishing institutes for mutual improvement and to study into the prin ciples not only of their own occupations but into the genial laws of science, that moment they began the upward march and they will continue to rise in propor tion as they continue their exertions to throw off ignorance and put on know ledge. That the world begins to think better of them is evinced on every hand by the respect that is beginning to be ox tended toward them. A few years ago a mechanic wras not thought fit to accept an oflice of any considerable distinction. now two out of seven candidates for Con gress are practical hard workitng mechan is, and one we believe, is a farmer. WVe wish every members of Congress was a working, intelligent mechanic, we verily believe that the affairs of the na ion would be in bet ter condition erc long. -There woul'l he less said andl more done, and the wvants of the nmany would be attemtled to, instead of the gratification and glorificatiion of the few. Mad Dogs Again.-No doubt exist any longer as to the existence of mad dogs in~ this District. htis rumored that two or tree persons htave'been bitten, and that one is now laboring under the fits of Hly drophtobia. Some energetic exertions should be madle to stop their roaming throujrh the cotuntry. Our Town Council might, with great propriety, pass an ordinance, taxing Dogs, and its execution would doubtless be attended with a terrible fatality to the canine species within the incorporatio.
