ALEXANDRIA, (D. C.)
^tchiliy MURy/wi. Decembers, ism. W think the newspipers are making unneces yrr cumment* upon a supposed alienation of Mr. Webster from Mr. Clay. Without pretending know any thing, personally, about the rela of these gentlemen, we may say, notwith eindirg, that their intercourse appears to be friendly and even intimate. That they do 0. al«avs tfduk alike on fvery subject is very ,r but wo presume on all the great subjects j now agitate the public mind, these two .^aracn not only hold the same opinions, "it wil| act together. We h.ve reason to be eie that the result will confirm this. Mr Bur foot's death having created a vacancy J,lf „ffiCe of the United States District Attor. .lfnev fur the District of Virginia, Ro.

If a resolution should ,;r.Cebe adopted to adjourn on the 4-h of M.ui next, we are certain it would have a happy ’nv£t m expediting public buxines-, as well a* in Iliurins attention to private claims. Notwith^ .;awli„g this, however, perhaps the session may be .p in out till summer. IV proceeding* of «he Senate of V.r2inia-a :„..Klv respectable bodv. and a moot important braruh of tlic law making power—are never re ported, nor do we believe its journal eve, seen bv one in a thousand of the people of the Stale.

We give an extract to day, and shall follow it up with further quota lions. * The late »ale has been, as was expected, very disastrous to the smaller vessels on the coast. We regret to see that some lives have been lost. Senator McKean has written a note disapprov es of a National Convention, and of its main design the nomination of Mr. Van Buren.

That paper contains the p*>. teclm-s of a Convention, or caucus, of t»*e De. mocranc members of the Pennsylvania I-tgisia tare, held in the State Capitol on the evening of the 17th mst. At this convention, the following resolutions "ere offered bv T U- Crawfmd, Esq of Frank .in, considered, and adopted.— Resolved, Thar this meeting approves of the *M,u.atinn of emulates, for the offices of Pre Mlent 3ud Vi<e President of the United butra, v actional Convention, to be composed ol l)e T»trj from the several States ol the Union.

In the House of Representatives, various pe titions were presented, and a number of private bills read and then the House adjourned. Benjamin Tappan, of Ohio, recently appointed to the office of Judge of the United States Court, in his young days, it is stated, used to make Journeymen’s wages at twelve different trades. A case at law has recently been decided in the courts of Virginia, of some interest, in regard to the liability of secret partners in business — One Zone furnished capital to another (Great house) to transact business, the whole manage ment being conducted under his sole name, and the lender receiving one half of the nett profits. These were made articles of agreement, which were produced in proof, at trial- The decision was, that the lender is bound for notes given in the name under which the business was transact ed, as though he was a partner in the concern. The court ruled that though it did nut consti tute a partnership as to the paities to the agree ment, yet it did as to third persons—the com pensation of Greathouse not being a sum certain, but dependant upon the amount of the profits.— To men of business in this city it may be inter esting to know the law on the subject in Virgin ia.— Balt. Jmer. A novel was republished in this country two or three months ago, entitled .Missbhrimus, which attracted some notice, from its extravagance.— The author turns out to be a young Englishman, who was recently arrested in Providence, Rhode Island, for robbing his fellow hoarders, at a hotel, of their clothes. He is now in Boston Jail, from which he has addressed a long letter to the editor of the Boston Transcript, giving a history of his life. It appears that he was a sort of protege of Mr Bulwer, the novelist, and probably was en deavoring to form hm character upon the model of Paul Clifford. In explaining the cause of his back sliding*, he says—“i had two much pride to beg; but I am such a paradox that I could de scend to—Oh, I will not mention it.” Balt. Gaz j “ 7he ruling passion strong in death."—I lie death of Porter Tidd, a colored musician, was mentioned in the papers of the city last week. Tidtl was extensively known among the vota- j ri.-s of pleasure in this vicinity, where he had uftii tated as the leader of a cotillion band for , twenty years or more. It is a remarkable (act, and one worthy of record, that for two hours previous to his death, he amoved himself, by calling the figures of several cotillions. He wav perfectly conscious of his approaching end; and the last words his religious attendant heard him utter were—“ balance to corners!'* Poston Jplas.

From stores we hear of nothing doing. It is useless longer to suppress the fact that Flour cannot be sold for cash, unless at a price considered by every one as a sacrifice. If this state of thing*, »e allude to the scarcity of money, lasts much longer, there is no 9uch thing as calculating how great the decline will be. At present. King street Flour, we believe, cannot be forced off at 85 00, and we should not be surprised to 9ee it go down to 84 75 or 84 50, or even below that. Under such circumstances, we would advise our friends in the country to 9tore at anv thing less than 85 00, with a hope of better times. ALEXANDRIA MARINE LIST.
