THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 6, 1826.
“flTthe first column of this day’s paper wc pre sent our readers with an interesting sketch of Florida. It is from the pen of a gentleman, whose statements are entitled to implicit confi dence, and whose opportunities of correct in formation have been ample. We observe that the National Journal of yes terday under the editorial head, has inadver tently giveu misnomer to the Penitentiary bill just passed by the House of Representatives— The Journal state it to he a bill for the erec tion of a Penitentiary “in the City of Washington,' whereas the bill says “1/1 the District of Colum too” We notice this circumstance, because wc wish it distinctly understood that the County of Alexandria has strong claims to any advan iha» may be derived from the location of ♦.hat institution; and will, at » proper time, un dertake to urge and explain her pretensions. CONGRESS PROCEEDINGS OF YESTERDAY. The Sen ate went into Executive business at an early hour. Nothing important was done with open doors. I:; iue House of Representatives—Mr. Varnum from the Committee on Military Pen-| sions, who were instructed on the March, ultimo, ta inquire into the propriety of so a mending the laws, granting military 'pensions, that it may be lawful for any Judge or Justice of a Court of Record, Justice of the Peace, or Notary Public, to attend at the place of resi dence of the applicant, and administer the oaths, and receive the declarations required by law, cr by the rules of the War Department, in cases where applicants, by age or infirmity are unable to attend in Court—made a report, unfavorable to the object of inquiry, and was dibchargtd from the further consideration ol me subject. Mr. Allen, from the Committee on Revolu tionary Claims, and Mr Little, Irom the same Committee, made unfavorable rt ports on the case ol a number of persons applying to be placed on the pension list. The resolution yesterday offered by Mr. Mercer, of Virginia, calling on the Secretary of State for copies of the depositions of (iil ijert C Russell and Francis W. Armstrong, re lative to the title of Claimants, and the disposal of the cargoes of the slave ships Constitution, Louisa, and Merino, was considered and agreed :o. , On motion of Mr. Cgmbreleng of N. fork, the Committee on Naval Affairs were instruct ed to inquire into the ex; - iienev of authoriz ing the sale of a portion of the land appertain ing to the Navy Yard at Brooklyn, and of ap propriating the proceeds of the sale to the pur chase of the land contiguous to the same. On motion of Mr.•Whittlesey, the Commit tee on Commerce were instructed to inquire into the expediency of providing, by law, for allowing Post Entries to be made in the r< spcc live ports on the Lakes,into which goods, waics and merchandize shall be brought from a fo reign port, or carried coastwise On motion of Mr Davis, of Massachusetts, the Committee on Military Pensions were in structed to enquire into the expediency of pla cing within the provisions of an act, made and passed on the 15th March, 1318, entitled “ an act to provide for certain persons engaged in the land and naval service of the United States in the Revolutionary war,* and an act in addition thereto, passed the ist of May, 182u, all such persons, as in said war served against the common enemy during nine months or up wards. A message was received from the President of the United States, transmitting additional documents in relation to the Panama Mission, which documents were referred to the commit tee of tbe whole on the state of the Union, and ordered to be printed. A bill f om the Senate, to authorise the state of Pennsylvania, to lay out and make a Canal through the United States Public Bands, nrti the city of Pittsburg; was read a third time, massed, and returned to the Senate. The engrossed bill, “declaring valid, and le galizing certain sales ol land in the state of Mississippi;” was read a third time, passed, and sent to the Senate for concurrence. The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union, Mr. Steven son, of Virginia, in the chair, on the Report of the Committee of Foreign A flairs, in rela tion to the proposed mission to the Congress of Panama Mr WickliiFt, of Ken. and Mr Carson, of N. C. spoke against the expediency of the mission, and Mr. Y\ ood, of N.Y. in favor of it. The Commitiee then rose, on motion ol Mr. Rives, of . Virginia—And the House ad journed. We understand that Captan James Biddle, of Philadelphia, is appointed fc command the U. S. squadron about to sail for the protection ol our commerce off the coast of Brazil. He will sail in the Macedonian, and be accompanied by iwo sloops of war. Dcm. Press. From the New-York American, April 3. The arrival of the packet ships Silas Richards, New-York and Columbia, has overwhelmed us with newspapers, pamphlets, See. Our papers oowtver in regular succession, are only to^he -Oth Feb. inclusive. The intelligence furnished by these arrivals, both political and commer cial, is important. The state of Russia is Manifestly unsettled: the people, the oobles, the Arniy and the clergy, are, according to the pri vate advices we have received,discontented and •esire a war with the 1 urks—an event that '•Tould involve all Europe in new difficulties.— The mission of the Duke of Wellington at an ■nclement season, and in delicate health, is not i mere courtly compliment of congratulation. He will doubtiess be instructed to asceriain the exact condition of affairs in Russia, and to hold such language in the name of Great Britain, as f^y may warrant. In England, all attention almost seems to be Absorbed in the great commercial and financial Stress. Parliantent was entirely occupied with it, but apparently without any hope of present remedy to the evil. So great howtter I was the dissatisfaction, that a change of Minis try was in agitation, and would certainly be at* tempted, though, it was thought, without suc cess, or at least, with but partial success. Pei* haps the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Fre* derick Robinson, whose capacity is by no means equal to the exigencies of the times, may have found it expedient to retire. There has never, since 1793, it is said, been so great monied dis tress experienced in London. A letter from there, now lying before us, has this language:— | “Never was there such general gloom; and it pervades Manchester,Liverpool, and will soon reach Glasgow. One spinning establishment stopped on the 16th, and threw 1,000 people out of employ, another 400; and yet government looks on and says, it is no concern of theirs, and that tlie evil must work its own cure.” The relief which the mercantile interest had asked for and the government had refused, was an issue of exchequer bills on the deposit of produce. A similar measure had been resort ed to in 1793, with great benefit to the com mercial interest, and without ultimate loss to the government, but the Chancellor of the Ex chequer said the circumstances of the case were so different, as to render what was done then, now inexpedient. The quotations of U. S. Stocks are merely nominal. There was no sale of them nor could money be raised on them as pledges. Some shares of U. S- Bank stock had been forced off under 20/. The failure of the great booksellers, Consta ble Sc Co. is said to have ruined Sir Walter Scott, who bad made himself responsible for them to a large amount. It has produced, too, the developement of the tncoznifo, hitherto pre served by the author of the Wavcrly novels, Sir Walter having, as it is said, in order to prove liis claims on the estate, been obliged to swear that he bad an interest as author in the proceeds of those works. According to the annexed pa ragraph, however, he will not be reduced to penury Sir Walter Scott, notwithstanding the unfor tunate issue of the commercial speculations with which lie has been mingled, will not be in a destitute condition. Lady Scott has a large fortune left to her at the decease of a brother. The estate of Abbesford, about 40 miles from Edinburgh, on which a large fortune was ex pended, was, some years back, settled upon his s >n, who married a lady of considerable wealth. Hie lucrative ofH< e held hv Sir Walter himself will remain, after all pecuniary difficulties have been arranged Extract of a letter from London of the 14th Feb. “On Friday afternoon I went under the aus pices of-, to the House of Commons, anil was well placed under the gallery. 1 he debate was upon the currency. The proposal of Mi nisters is to stamp no more 1/. notes, and tore quire those'in circulation to be called in in 1829 —thus curtailing five years of the privilege of the country hankers;—and further, to authorize the establishment of banks with more than six partners, 65 miles from London. The debate continued until half past twelve at night, and was. upon motion of Mr. Canning, adjourned until last night, when I again attended, and re mained until two o’clock, when an amendment of Mr. Baring to the Ministers’ proposal was 4ost. 222 to 32. Mr., Canning observed before the vote was taken, that the present division was to be considered by them all, as decisive of the main question. The debate on both sides ; was able and temperate, but particularly anima ted on the second night. All the principal, and many of the secondaiy speakers took put t in the course of the d« bate. If Mr. Canning r>ad been better informed on some points, nis speech would have told even mo*e than it did.— Brougham, and a great part of the opposition voted with the Ministiv; indeed the whole de bate was free from party feelings, and cxclu ,ivelv confined to the subject under discussion Mr. Baring’s objection to tlie measure was one „f time, and not to the soundness of the mea .mler oth* r circumstances All admitted that the difficulties of t.ie money market were far beyond the reach and remedy of Parliament, and that me proposal of Ministers was rather one of precaution for the fulnie, than of cure for the present. None of the speakers can be said to have spoken eloquently; the subject it self forbad it: many of them, however, evinced good sense, and much knowledge of the subject, which, at times, was badly illustrated by their difficult & hesitating delivery. Mr. Peel and Mr. Canning a-e graceful and engaging in their manner; Mr. Brougham has the style and ac curacy of a lawyer; Mr. Baring speaks like a nan of sense, and has more ideas than words. Mr. Robinson, Chancellor of the Exchequer, opened the debate in support of his resolution, in a speech remarkable only lor its inefficiency, and entire want of khowledgc of the condition of the country, -nd the effect which the mea sure proposed bv him was to have: and had it not been for his colleague, Mr. Huskisson, who, in a plain and well-digested speech explained and enforced the effect and consequences of the gradual withdrawal of the l/. notes from cir culation, the proposal of ministers would have remained during the first evening without ex planation 1 have sent you the TiMes of to-day, which is filled with the debate. “ The Emperor of Austria will shortly abdi cate in favor of his second son, his eldest being an idiot, and retire to Florence to pass the re mainder of his days. I do not think that the government here are easy about Russia. Its great army, and the public opinion in favor of Greece, with the plunder of Constantinople as* an incentive to these praetorian bands, may fi nally force Nicholas from the observance of his brothei’s policy.” LOSS OF THE MARY AND SUSAN. Charleston, March 27.— 1 he ship Mary Sc Su san, Couthouy, witn a cargo of Sugar %nd Cof fee, hound to Hamburgh, in attempting to get her anchor to return to the Roads from Five Fathom Hole on F'ndav last, the wind blowing a gale from the South, was struck by a very heavy squall from the Westward, and broke adrift; the best bower anchor was let go, but did not bring her up. The ship then u ifted ashore near Pumpkin Hill, with both anchors ahead! between 9 and 10 o’clock. The schr. United States was despatched immediately, and reached the ship at 3 o’clock with 20 men; it blowing very fresh and a heavy sea on, c m Id not get bu> 6 men on board. 1 he water casks were stove, end together with severe! other itv tides thrown overboard to ease her, the ship at the time thumping very badly. At 3 o’clock the ship broke her rodder by hard thumping; the pumps were kept going from the lime the ship got ashore, and she was kept free until 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon, when the leak in creasing, commenced lightening the ship by taking out the coffee and putting it on board the schrs. Mary & Sally, and United States, and Capt. Webber’s smack. Our informants, Capts. Prince and Woodberry left the ship at 11 o’clock on Friday night, in Capt. Webber’i smack, with about 100 bags coffee, at whici time there was seven feet water in her hold, it is their opinion, that the greater part of tie coffee between decks will be saved—-the ship and remainder of the cargo will be entirely lost. Several vessels which went down to the wreck returned on Saturday evening, having savrd the greater part of the^offee, a small quantity of sugar, most of her sails, some rigging, Jtc. A number of wreckers were along side of the wreck all Saturday night, and yesterday morn ing. The ship was insured in Boston, (where site belonged) and bad on board about 1700 boxes of sugar, 900 bags coffee and some log wood. Capt. Couthouy came up to town last eve ning with several wreckers, who bad been along side the wreck during the whole of yesterday, but succeeded in saving only a small parcel ol rigging, materials, &c. at.1 ..- ±-a COMMERCIAL. t rices of Produce in Alexandria yesterdui/: Flour, (superfine,) ... ••• $4 Wheat, (sales). , 0 80 a 0 90 Corn, (sales) ... ... ••• 0 73 Rye, . ... 9 50 Oats. ... 0 53 Whiskey, . ... 0 28 Uacon,. ... 5 00 Cotton, (Virginia,) ... ... 12 a 0 13 Vovt ot AVex.aiu\v\ft.
