THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 4, 1827.
The Select Committee, charged with the in vestigation of Mr. Calhoun’s case, have held several meetings, at the last of which Mr. Sec retary Barbour attended, by request. It is pro bable they will repott to-day. Me learn,from a creditable source, that notwithstanding Mr. Calhoun’:, pretended belief that the charges a .gainst him were of an official character, he was apprized, before he made his communication to the House,of the honorable course pursued by the Se cretary of War, and was assured, by a mutual friend, that Mix’s letter being considered, by the Secretary, as a vile slandaf, was immedi ately returned to the gentleman who communi cated it, having produced no other effect in the Department than that of refusing to give Mix another contract. We take this occasion to say that we have derived no part'of our infor mation from offiaal sources. When the inves tigation shall have been finished, we shall say more. A bill yesterday passed the House of Repre sentatives, by a large majority, authorising the importation of Brandy in Casks of fifteen Gal lons, and permuting the same to be exported with the benefit of Drawback. The existing Jaws piohibitthe importation of foreign spirits *n casks of less capacity than Ninety Gallons, which are too large for the interior trade of South America, and the consequence has been that our merchants have lost the benefit of it. The Vice President’s Telegraph of yester day, impeaches the motives of the Speaker of the House of Representatives in relation to the appointment of the Rip Rap Committee, but the artifice is too shallow to escape detec tion. The object is to secure a retreat in the event of an unfavorable Report, or to mag nify the glory of a triumph over Mix, should the Report be favorable. Under such circum stance;, the Committee will recommend, we hope, that Mr. Calhoun and his old friend and companion, Mix, be allowed to settle their quar rels in their own way. On Monday last the General Assembly ol Maryland proceeded according to the provi sions of the Constitution, to make choice of a Governor for the State for the ensuing year.— On counting the votes, it appeared that Joseph Kent, Esq. was unanimously re-elected. Governor Kent communicated his message to the General Assembly on the 27th ultimo. The Baltimore American says—“It is a well written and highly interesting document, and will command an attentive perusal from every citizen of Maryland.” We have not had leisure to peruse the whole of the Message, but from a hasty glance at its contents, we are disposed to concur in the opi nion expressed by the American of its merits. From this document we make the following ex tract, which breathes a spirit of patriotism, 8c is a neat and merited compliment to the Chief Magistrate of the Union. It doubtless met with a favorable reception by those to whom it was addressed:— “The foreign lelations of the country and many oilier important concerns, deeply interest ing to the people of Maryland, in common with those of our sister states, being committed by the Constitution of the United States to the superintendence and management of *he nation al authority; and having full confidence in the ability, experience, patriotism and integrity of the distinguished statesman to whom that au thority is confided, we shall not step from our limited sphere of action to examine minutely into those general concerns.’ CONGRESS PROCEEDINGS OF YESTERDAY. In the Senate—Mr. Harrison gave notice that to-morrow he should ask leave to introduce a bill to establish certain Collection Districts in the States of Ohio, Kentucky and Missouri. Mr. Marks obtained leave to intioduce a bill to authorize the payment of interest due to the Slate of Pennsylvania, oo moneys advanced du ring the late war. The bill concerning the selection of certain lands heretofore granted by compact to the State of Missouri, for seminaries of Icarnjpg, was read the third time and passed. The Senate then proceeded to the considera tion of the bill i* abolish imprisonment for debt. Various amendments were proposed and •gTcd to, when the bill, as amended, was or dered to be printed. After the consideration of executive business the Senate adjourned. 1m TH« House OF R*PRESF.XTAT1VF.S.—Two unimportant petitions were presented by spe cial leave, the time having arrived when ihey can be presented in the ordinary way only on the first day’s sitting of each week. The Committee of Ways and Means report ed a bill front the Senate for the relief of P. B Trice or ientuck?, a bill for the relief of Pedro Miranda, and a bill for the relief of Henry G. Pjct._the Committee on the Public Lands re ported a bill for the relief of Isaac Delander; the Committee on Military Affairs reported a bill to increase the pay of non-commissioned officers and privates, and to prevent desertion in the Army; also a bill to authorise the pur chase of additional ground for the use of the Arsenal at Watervleit in the State of New-\ oik; the Committee of Claims reported a bit. for the relief of the representatives of Joseph Lvans; and Mr. Mar able, from the Select Committee, appointed on the petition of \Vyhe Blunt, re ported a bill for Ids relief;—all which bills were twice read and committed. .. The resolution submitted yesterday by Mr. Storrs of New-York, was taken up and thread to, instructing the Secretary of the Treasury to communicate to the House the monthly state ments of the Bank of the United States, receiv ed since the 30th day of January,. 1926. The resolution submitted oo the 39th ultimo by Mr. Rives of Virginia,and the amendments proposed at the same time by Mr. Bartlett, of New Hampshire, were taken up; when Mr. Bartlett withdrew his amendanent, and the ori ginal resolution, offered oy Mr. Rives, was a dopted as follows: Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be instructed to inquire into the expe diency of discontinuing the annual appropria tion heretofore made, for defraying the ex pense of such surveys of routes for roads and canals as may be directed by the executive, and ot substituting therefor distinct and speci fic appropriations for surveying such routes on ly as shall be authorized by Congress. Mr. Bartlett then offered his proposed a mendments as independent resolutions, which were agreed to as follows: Resolved, That the Committee of Ways and Means be instructed to inquire into the expe diency of requiring that herealter all estimates of appropriations for the operations of the dif ferent Departments of the Government, when the same are to be applied to the construction of works of a permanent character, shall be ac companied with a general description of the work proposed, with an estimate of the entir^ cost for its completion, and from yew to yeaP with a statement of the sums expe^ed, and the balance which will be required. Resolved, also, That the same Committee in quire into the expediency of making provision, by an amendment of the rules of the House, or otherwise, that hereafter, the estimates for mi litary service and defence, shall be teferred to the Committee on Military Affairs, the esti mates for Indian expenditures to the Commit tee on Indian Affairs: the estimates for the Na vy Department to the Committee on Naval Af fairs; and the estimates for the Public Build ings to a Committee on the Public Buildings; and that the several committees shalf make re port upon the same, before any bill making ap propriations for the purposes of such estimates shall be considered by the House. Mr. Cocke, of Tennessee, submitted a reso lution, which was laid upon the table, direct ing the Secretary of War to lay before this House acopyol'the reports of the Inspectors General of the Army for the years 1824, 1825, and 1826; and also copies orall letters receded from said Inspectors General, addressed to the Secretary of War, the Commanding General, or Adjutant General, relative to the state and condition of the Army, and of each separate detachment and command thereof, keeping each year separate. On motion of Mr. Ward, of New York, the Committee on Military Affairs was instructed 10 enquire into the expediency of making a road, commencing; at or near Fishkill landing in the county of Dutchess in the State of N York; thence, by the margin of the Hudson river, to Cold Springs, in the county of Putman; and thence, by the most direct and feasible route, to the pdblic road leading to the oity of New York, so as to avoid the dangerous and dilH cult passes in the Highlands; and that the said Committee be also instructed to report the ad vantages which such a road would be to the United Slates in a military point of view, and especially as it relates lo the military post at West Point. On motion of Mr. Owen, of Alabama, the Committee on Military Affairs was instructed t* enquire into the expediency of establishing an Arsenal in the State of Alabama. Mr. Reed, of Massachusetts, laid a resolution on the table, directing the Secretary ofWarlo lay before the House the survey of the Flat on the north west side of the harbor of Edgartown, to ascertain the utility and practicability of building a Light House thereon. Also, the survey at the .mouth of Merrimack river, and the practicability of deepening the Channrl o ver the same. Also, the survey of the Harbor at Hyannis, in the Vineyard Souad, to ascer tain what improvements can be made in the same for the safe anchorage of vessels; and the expense of effecting severally these objects. The Speaker laid before the House a com munication from the War Department, trans mitting informatiion called for, relative to the Removal of the Indian Tribes to the Western side of the Mississippi; also, from the same Department, a Report of the Chief Engineer, relative to the Plans and Estimates of Fortifi cations contemplated Tor the defence of Pensa cola; Also, from the same Department, a report of the Chief Engineer, respecting the location of the National Road between Zanesville and Columbus, in Ohio; Also, from the Navy ue partment, an abstract of expenditures on ac count of contingent expenses of the Navy, du ring the year ending on the 30th of September, 1826; Also, from the same Department, a state ment showing the names and pay of the Clerks employed in ihe Office of the Secretary of the >javy during the year 1826, and a similar state ment for the Office of the Navy Commission ers; Also, from tbe same Department, a state ment of the Contracts made by the Navy Com missioners during the year 1826; Also, from the Post Office Department, a statement of the nett amount of Postage accruing at each Post Of fice in the United St/tes for one year, ending the 31st of March* 1826; Also, from the same Department, a statement of the number, names and pay of the regular and temporary Clerks employed during the year 1826. The House then took up the engrossed bill, authorising the importation of Brandy in casks of not less than fifteen gallons capacity, and the exportation ot the same with the benefit of drawback. Mr. Buchanan of Pennsylvania, & Mr. Wood of New York opposed the passage of the bill, on the ground that it would prove injurious to the manufacturers of Domestic Spi rits, and give facilities to smugglers. These objections were answered by Mr. Livingston of Louisiana, Mr. Everett of Massachusetts, Mr. Pearce of Rhode Island, and Mr. Barney of Maryland. The bill was then passed by a vote of 106, to 67. And the House adjourned. On the 17th inst. a daring attempt at escape was made by the criminals confined in the Georgia Penitentiary. Only two men got be yond the walls, and they were soon overtaken. Having fire arms and refusing to surrender, they were both shot dead, [Raleigh Rtgiatrr. Georgetown, H C.

We learn from the Lancaster, (Ohio) Ga zette, that the Reservoir of the Ohio Canal, on the Licking Summit, contracted for by Mr Sheather, of Rochester, New-York, is now com pleted. It contains an area of about 3000 a eres, and the embankment, necessary to its com pletion, two miles and twenty-three chains in length, and is iutended to supply the main line of canal with water in dry seasons. The em bankment, with a wall of hewn timber in the centre of the bank, has cost the Slate about 50,000 dollars. A decision was made by the Court of Errors of the State of New-York on the 28th ultimo, which it appears to us must ihrow into irre trievable confusion, for a time, all the com mercial concerns of that great State, so far as they are connected with Bank transactions.— The case was that of the Bank of Utica v$ Philip Wager, which is thus stated:“This ac tion was brought in the Court below for the re covery of the amount of a note discounted at the Bank of Utica, which was resisted by the defendants, on the ground of usury, because that, in discounting the note, the bank agents retained the interest in advance, charged in terest for the three days’ grace, and also because the bank agents, in computing the interei*, calculated it at 30 days for each month, by which mode hut three'hunrired and sixty days were allowed to the year.” The decision of “the Court below” was, that the note was void on account of usury. The Judgment of the Court below was affirmed in the Court of Er rors, by 15 votes to 8. This decision appears to us to be clrarly ageinst equity, however it may comport with law. The practice, here so severely denounced as to vitiate contracts con nected with it, is universal, in Bank transac tions. An attempt was made, by Mr. ('olden, who was one of the Judges in this case, to ob tain, whilst he was a Member of the House of Representatives of the United States, a decis ion of the House, on the same grounds, a gainst the legality of discounts by the Bank of the United States and its Branches. But, it failed, the »ist*ge being *oo established to be shaken on light grounds. For ourselves, we owe more money to Banks than we chuse to take any pride in telling, but we trust the evil of this decision will be limited to the State of New York, where enough of evil will be work ed, by its favoring those who may avail them selves of it, to the manifest injury of the Stock holders of the Banks—to the defeat of the ends of justice—and to the prostration of public morals. Thus one explosion after another reaches us from the combustible region of the great State. The quiet citizen of that State, who is a spec tator merely, must feel himself, after one of these shocks, to be somewhat in the condition of the honest tar, who was blown “sky high” at a juggler’s exhibition, and, on re-landing on mother earth with whole bones, astonished at his involuntary somerset, wondered “what the d—1 they would do next.”.—[.Nat. Intelligencer. DIED, On board the U. S. Schooner Grampus, on her pas sage from Pensacola to Havana, on the morning ot the 30th November, Lieut Comd’t Josaru Cassik, of the United States Navy, and at 4 o'clock in the afternoon of the same day, his remains were committed to the deep, with military honors. Lieut.
