SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 11, 1826.
Mr. Powell of Virginia, much of whose time is assiduously devoted *o the legislative wants of this District, yesterday obtained leave from the House to direct the attention of the Committee for the District of Columbia to the important and desirable subject of a uniform Code of Laws. The want of such a code, has long been a theme of denunciation and com plaint—to neglect the present favoroble oppor tunity, would, therefore, be unpardonable in our legal men. The proposition to increase the Baltimore representation, in the Legislature of Maryland, has been rejected in the House of Delegates, by a vote of 36 to 27. * CONGRESS PROCEEDINGS OP YESTERDAY. In the Senate, vhe Committee on the Dis trict of Columbia reported the following bills:— \ bill to incorporate the Medical College A bill to exempt the officers and students of the Columbia College from the performance of Mi litia duty, except in case of war; 8c a bill lor the benefit of the Columbia College, granting to the Trustee* authority to raise,by Lottery, a sum ol money not exceeding g 100,000. The bill extending the limits of Georgetown was passed to a third reading. The bill tor the reuei oi jaim-s «- v.u. of Savannah, authorising the Secretary of the treasury to pay them $23,885, for certain goods which were sold as forfeited in 1812, and the amount paid into the Treasury, was the subject of considerable discussion. The house of William Dixon St Co. in Liverpool, ship ped to the house of James Dickson Sc Co. ol Savannah, in the month of July, 1812,(these houses being in partnersh ip)an invoice of goods amounting to/.21,547—the said shipment being less than the share or interest of James Dick son in the joint funds of the concern, which were then in England, and was intended as a transfer of the funds really belonging to James Dickson, from England to the United States. The said goods were shipped in an American vessel—captured by an American privateer carried into Savannah and libelled. The libel was dismissed by the Supreme Court, hut a moiety of the proceeds, to the amount above stated, was retained by the officers of the Cus toms, and ultimately condemned for a breach of the Non Importation Act. 1 hese are the facts as reported by the Committee on Finance, and the Committee, believing that the ship ment wastmade in good faith, with the strong est presumption that the Non Importation Act would cease, and that peace would be restored, reported a bill for their relief. The bill was sus tained by Mr. Smith and Mr. Berrien, and op posed by Mr Tazewell, who moved to recom mit it with instructions to report a general bill, embracing all similar cases. 1 his motion was rejected, and the bill was laid on the table. Ik the House of Representatives.—Mr. McLane from the Committee ot Ways and Means, to whom was referred a letter from the Secretary of the Treasury, transmitting an es timate of appropriations proposed for the year 1326, reported, that by the said estimate, the sum of $9000 was required for the purchase of ihirty acres of land adjoining the public land at the arsenal at Watervliet in the state ol New* York; and the further sum of $6,500 for the purchase of fifty artillery horses for the use of the Military Academy, and for mate rials to cr£ct stables and forage houses for the said horses The committee did not doubt that the object of these requisitions might be expe dient and beneficial to the service, but deemed it proper that the subject should be investiga ted by the Military Committee to whom it was accordingly reierrea The resolution offered yesterday by Mr. Tomlinson, of Connecticut, asking information from the Treasury Department, in relation to the cost and location of Custom Houses and public Ware Houses, was considered and agreed to. Mr. Whipple’s resolutions on the subject of introducing Vaccination into the Army and Navy oi the United States, were also taken into cousideration and adopted. Mr. Tatnall, of Georgia, yesterday laid a re solution on the table which was called up to day, and after some slight modification, passed as follows: Rooked, That the President of the United States be requested to cause to be laid before this House a list of the claims lor indemnifica tion for slaves and other private property taken away, which have been submitted to the Com missioners appointed under the Treaty of Ghent, together with a statement of the seve ral amounts of such claims; also, what claims have been allowed, and what claims have been finally rejected, and those which still remain undetermined; also, a statement of the causes which have delayed the complete adjustment of these claims, and that he also cause to be af forded such information as he may have re ceived from our Minister in London, under the instructions given to him on the subject; and also information in relation to the probable time when the commission will terminate. On motion of Mr. Powell, of Virginia, the , Committee for the Distriet of Columbia were instructed to inquire into the expediency of establishing a uniform Code of Laws for said District. And on motion of Mr Alexander, of Virginia, the same committee were dis charged from the further consideration of a re solution of the House which instructed them to inquire into the expediency of making an appropriation for improving the navigation at the mouth of the Eastern Branch of the Poto mac ; and the subject was referred to the Com mittee on Commerce. The engrossed Bill making appropriations for the Military service of the United States for the current year, was read a third time and passed. Ou motion of Mr. Mallary, of \ ermont, the House then took up an interesting private Bill, granting a pension to Penelope Denny, whose gallant son, and only support, was killed in the piratical seas, during the year 1822, while bravely defending the flag of his country. The case seemed to be a peculiar and a strong one, and consequently gave rise to a wide debate. The Bill was opposed on the ground of its ten dency to introduce a new principle into the pensiou system. This on the other hand was •denied, and analagous acts of relief were pro duced; but the defence of the Bill mainly rest ed upon the intrinsic merits of the special case The question on the engrossment of the Bill for a third reading, was taken by ayes and noes and decided in the affirmative, ayes 87, noes 71. A number of private Bills were read the third time and passed; among them, one for the fur ther relief of delinquent purchasers of the Public Lands. The Speaker laid before the House, a letter from the Secretary of the Navy, transmitting a report from the Navy Commissioners, contain ing the information called for by the House, on the 20th January last, in relation to the cost of certain Live Oak frames for Steam Batteries and Ships of War; which letter was read and referred to the Committee on Naval Affairs.— The Report estimates the cost of Frames for six Steam Batteries, twelve Ships of the Line, fifteen Frigates, fifteen Sloops of War, and the erection of the necessary sheds for their preser vation, at 81,517,500. The House then adjourned to Monday. SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES. Thukbdat, Febiiuaiit 9, 1826. William Griffith, Esq. of New-Jersev, ap pointed Clerk of this Court, to supply the va cancy occasioned by the death of Elias B. Caldwell, the late Clerk, appeared and enter ed upon the duties of his office. The case of Otis vs. Walter, was argued by Mr. Blake and Mr. Wirt for the Plaintiff, and Mr. Reed and Mr. Webster, for the Dcfenp ant. In the case of Brooke vs. Marbury, a rule heretofore made on the part of the Defend ant, to shew cause why the writ of error should not he dismissed, was argued by Mr. Cox for the Plaintiff, and Mr Key for the Defendant. Ordered by the Court, that the rule be dis charged: Friday, February 10. The case Brooke vs. Marbury, was argued by Mr. Jones and Mr. Cox for the appellant, and by the Attorney General and Mr. Key for the Defendant. The case of Thomas vs. Johnson Sc others, was affirmed; and the case of Smith vs. Wins ton, was dismissed. FROM HAVANA. Norfolk, February 7.-Capt. Banks, of schooner PrincessAnne, arrived here yesterday morning, in 8 days from Havana, informs that the U. S. frigate Constellation, capt. Woolsey, and brig Spark, It,com. Newton, from Vera Cruz were there, ail well; the latter to sail for Nor folk or New York in a few days. Capt. Wool sev, we are gratified to learn, was much im proved in health. The U. S. ship Hornet, capt. Wood house, sailed from Havana '27th ult. for Key West, all well. A Spanish fleet, consisting of 10 or 12 sail of vessels, bound for Cadiz under convoy of a frigate and two gun brigs, sailed 28th January The Princess Anne was boarded off Matan zas on the evening of the 28th ult. from the Colombian brig of war Liberator, capt. Bart lett, who treated them politely, and after ma king some enquiries respecting the Spanish fleet, took their departure. Capt Banks feH in, on his outward passage, 15th ult. in lat. 29, 26, long, 7^, 12, with part of the wreck of a vessel, and on the night fol lowing (16th) in lat 28, 30, long. 74, 44, came in contact with another, keel up. FIRE. The “Muncy Woolen Factory” situate about twelve miles from Williamsport, Lycoming county, was destroyed by fire on the 28th ult. The loss of the Messrs. Rodgers is supposed to be between nine and ten thousand dollars. The whole of the valuable cotton factory, owned by Messrs. Almy, Brown & Slaters, of Slalersville,R. I- containing 5000 spindles, was burnt on Wednesday morning last. Loss esti mated at 80,000 dollars. A cotton house, belonging to Judge Cuyler, on his plantation, fourteen miles from Savan nah, was destroyed by fire on the 24th ultimo, with its contents, thirty-three bales of Sea Isl and cotton. Loss about 4000 dollars, insured 3500 dollars. Epsom Salt—(Sulphate of Magnesia) is so a bundant in a cave near Corydon, in Indiana, that it is carried away by the wagon load. It some times appears in masses weighing 10 pounds, and a bush°l of the earth of the cavern yields from 4 to 25 los. of the salt. Epsom salt is found in the mammoth cave in Kentucky. OOOEnZBROXAXh Prices of Produce in Alexandria yesterday: ftl 37 0 80 a 0 90 0 62 0 50 0 50 0 30 7 00 a 8 00 14 a 0 15 Flour, (superfine,) Wheat, (sales) Corn, (sales) Rye, Oats, Whiskey, Bacon, ... Cotton, (Virginia,) It will be seen that we have added Cotton to our catalogue of country produce. We have been induced to do so by the rapid influx of the article from the Northern Neck of Virginia— where, for several years past, the farmers have been gradually turning their attention to its cultivation. The quantity made during the last season, is represented as constituting a hea vy proportion of the disposable products of that section of the country; and the experiment, as regards the suitability of the climate and soil, has resulted in a conviction that no part of the United States is better adapted to the culture of the Upland quality. Under these circumstances the low price of W heat, Corn, and Tobacco, must tend strongly to give us a Cotton Market—Sales were made yesterday at 14s cents.

The splendor of this scheme needs no comment for illustration; the immense sum of three hundred and eight thousand dollars in proportionate shares (one hundred thousand being the Capital divi sion) to be procured at the insignificant rate of Twelve Dollars per chance, certainly presents an allurement which no one feeling a disposition to advance his tem poral interests, can possibly resist; the prizes are large, and the prices of tickets, comparatively speaking not more, to use the language of a celebrated classic, than a farthing rush light to the sun.
