The tircumirtanres under which the Bank charter passed, deativs a commentary, which we have-not time to make this evening. There are a few facts to to which we will call atten tion, to mark the character of the transaction. First: The charter for ihis new government of the country, patsed the Senate withont ob taining the vote o iho majority of Ihe mem beref that body. There are fifty-two mem bers Tennessee only half represented in the body. If the full representation had vo ted as the fraction of it voted on the question, and'o'lier dissenting member from the hill (Clayton) bad been compelled to do his duly, . and vole according to his own sense of bia oath, the charter . wouid have fallen in the Sen ate.. . Nexti If Mr. Mr. Henderson had done his duly yesterday, attended aa he was bound to do, and voted, as he says he would have voted according to the diclales of hie conscience; the compromise, the amendment, would have been rejeeled, and then Messrs. Merrick and others, who, stood plodged lo vole against the 'hill without the amendment, would have de feated ihih measure. The Bank charter, in fttead of being paiaed by the extra - Congress convened for tfif puifto-e, was thus in fact passed by (lie ahitxrt. ,pf ,'Mr. Henderson. Jt ought therefore; to read, be it enacted by tho 'absence of Air. Htndtrton," instead of ''be it enacted by the Senate and House of Repre sentative in Congress assembled." If ihe charter should then become effectual to fix upon the the present generation the great moneyed dynasty proposed, it will be the con sequence, first, of the call of a mutilated Con gress a Senator from Tennessee yesterday would have stifled the bill--sud -econdly, of the conduct of two Senators, who absented themptUee, and thus avoided the performance of a. duty which they admit their con-cciences demanded. . I'he vole ofeilher would have de fented Ihe bill. It was carried at last by the vote of Mr. Pristmi, who notoriously violates the almost unanimous public sentiment of his State. Will ihe President sanction a bill thus wor ked thiotigh theSenste, by what Mr. Rnn dolph would term black-leg management and containing, as it does. beyond all questions, a full aiserikn of the power to impose branches on iho SiBtcs--which has been again and a gain pronounced by the President a downright violation of the Constitution -of jlie United Sir.tee? We think not-. On our return home from the Senate, we wtre greeted by a letter from a great man six hundred miles distant, whose ken we have of tf.ti found reached beyond nil others, which make an abortion on this point. We have frequently found his assertions, piirophecieo, and vi e publish the following a of (hat char acter, and leave it lo be tested by the future: "Cltiy wilt-not -get hit Dank bill pasted Tyler will vdi it."
