I’ll call all our folks together, says the Gineral, ami we’ll have a full Cabinet aud look info this matter, and do you Major prepare yourself, for I’m going to turn over a new leaf, that I’m determined on—and with that he issued orders for every man to be at the Cabinet Cham ber the next day just after breakfast—and I went to work putting down all uiy notions in writing, for 1 expected a rough time and a pretty sharp set of fellows to beat oft—and thinks l as it is the fashon now a days to read papers to the Cabinet, I’ll give ’em one that will be worth reading, aud 1 guess it will be the last one that the Senate will ask an official copy of in one while. It took nigh upon all night to w rite it out—-and I sprung to it, for I think the time is come to let some folks see they haint got a green horn to outwit w hen they try me. And so the Gineral had ’em all up in the Ca binet Chamber yesterdy, aud such an overhaw 1 in 1 never set—I sat all the while with one foot on the tabic, whitlin a piece of shingle—and the Gineral was walking aiound among ’em, tellin about the troubles in money all about the coun try, and asking how we are to git out of the scrape—I kept ao eye on most ail on ’em, and both ears on pnttv much the hull on Vm, and such a winzin and tangle I never see since the day all Downingville come oyer to the, Jackson side, and that was jist ater his election—They thought l was determin'd the first go to say noth in—And to eights l heard one chap jist be hind me tell the Gineral “there was one Major in the Cabinet who made pietty much all the trouble, and that he was writin letters that went all the while agin the rest or* ’em—and if it warn’t for him they could make the people be lieve just what they wanted — that it was his fault th^t the Cabinet was obliged to shift their ground about the Bank and cross tracks every day,—If it had’nt been for him the deposites would have been removed because there wain't no ‘Safety Fund’ in the Bank, and the People been contented—and if it warn’t for him the government could not make the people believe that Biddle was the sole cause of their bein no money now a days;” and soon. I jest stop’d whitlin a minit and cast my eve over my left shoulder, and the fellow dod’gd be hind the Gineral in a Hash, and when l look’d round the ring l found pretty much the hull on ’em looking at me and there warn’t a word said. And to right* the Gineral he walk’d up to me and Stod’d right in front and look’d me strait in the face, *ay9 he, Major you’ve hearn all that is said —and 1 should like to know what you have to sa« io reply—no man shall leave this room says the Gineral till this troble is cleared up—•* Ma jor” *ays the Gineral (and his hp began to quiver I tell vou) Major, says he, it would take a good many men to convince me that you aint what I have always found you an honest mani and a true patriot—some tot k9 about us have bin whis perin in my ear lor a long while that you aint wiiat l think you are—but Major, says the Gine ral—I am a soldier and so are you—and we are now all face to face—no more whisnerin says the Gineral, and he gave his Hickory a whack on the floor and look’d round the hull ring—The coun ftry is in trouble says he, and the time is come for every honest man to speak out—if there is error let i’ be corrected—if there is trick we must ex pose it—and now Major says the Gineral do you set still—and if any man has any thing to say agio you let him speak out. When they are ail done—you can answer them—and with that the Gineral pull’d his own chair up to the other side of the table and laid his Hickory and hat down before him, and all our folks began to nock noses in little groups here and there, and oq£ on cm, no matter who, was as busy as a lap dog on a tramin dav, smelling round from one to auother to find the right man to speak first—but none on em seem’d to like it—The Gineral all the while sat blinkin and lookin round at ’em all, and rum plin his face once and a while most plagily. So to rights, this one on em came forward and bow’d, and says he, GineraL that “our sufter in9 is intolerable,” there is little doubt; arid the question is not hoio wegoti/ifo our present con dilion, but how we can best git out oj it. I be lieve, says he, (turnin with a how to every bpdv —for he is an amazin polite cretur,) that is the true and only point now for discussing. “Not exactly, says 1, but no matter.” “ Well, says he, as regards the Major, far be it from me to make any charge against him; he is decidedly the favorite ot the people, and should be the favorite of every man in office who wishes to keep bis of fice; but l would say, that l wish the Major had a higher office. I wish he was an auditor of ac counts—or » receiver of public money—or a mi nister abmail-—or an login agent, or any other office in the Government; but as he is now—there is no getting hold of either end of him; we can’t khm , ..ate him, which I sincerely desire—we can't put him down, which no roan desires. There are things in all governments—and in this in partial lar, that require cooking up before, the people should be served with it; but the Major hands the dishes over to the people raw and uncock’d, and lets every man dres9 his own dinnner—this is not right. And then, again, he is an enemy to party, and thinks that politicians shouldn’t meddie in money matters, when we all know that none of us would now be here without party, and that party can’t hold together without office, and that office aiut worth a fig without money; and so it comes to this—we’ve got a party, and a good strong one; and that party must keep all the offices, and the control of all the money: for, without money, the offices wont be good for nothin-w-and without offices the party will be all scattered: look at my own state—see how things work there; and just so they should here. We must have the Bank _we cant’t do anything without it. It is all ! good enough if we could get Biddle and his friends out of it—but seeing we have tried that and cant succeed, this must go down, and then we’ll have a new one after our own fashion—unfortunately, some will suffer—because this one must, I sup pose collect its debts and wind up—but what is the sufferings of a few in trade, compar’d to the breaking up of a political party, now all hitched together—think of all of us going back again to practice law—and you, Mr. Auditor, to keeping a school—and you. Mr. Secretary, to keeping a shop—and you to ploughing—and you to plantin coin—-and you to diggiug potatoes—and vou to printin newspapers. “And you, Major,” says he, “what would become of you?” I begun to craw l all over, and was just going to say something, but I thought I would’nt till he got through; and he reeled it off for more than an hour pretty much in the same way about things in general, and Major Down ing in particular—and as soon as he stopf, I got up and says l, has any body got nothin more to 3 \T a a aa! <4 a am.I Cn V »r» a I I n 1 9a v • liu uiic saiu a u. uu ? a m u •« is said put in writin? — for then there^will be no mistake—no turnin -corners—no dodgin after wards. “ 0 no,” says he, kk there is no neces sity to put any thing in writin of this nature— that ain’t my way,” says he k< I have always said, I don’t like to get into the newspapers ”— *k Well,” says 1, “ that’s just w here we differ— what I’m going to say now, says 1, is all in my pocket in black and white—and with tha Gine ral’s permission, 9ays I, I'll read it to the mem bers of the Cabinet, and then I’ll git it printed, and then all on you can read it, and every man shall have a eopy on’t, except Clay and the rest of the Senate—lor tho’ the law says they are part of the Government, they ain’t got no business with any paper read to the Cabinet—ain't that law, savs I, Gineral?”—The Gineral nodded his head, and that was enuf; and says he, “ Major, do you read that paper; I know you well enuf to know it will be an honest view of thing*, and I don’t care whose toes you tread on. 1 have no y ioterest in these matters further than to do my duty—if any fellows have misled me, l advise em to keep an eye on my hickory. And then 1 took out inv papers from my pock et arid w ent at it; and I did’nt mini e matter* I tell you. The Gineral sat restio his elbows on the table with his chin in both hands and tonkin straight in my face the hull time, ony once in a while he’d take his hickory and whack it on die table when any one muttered and whimpered; and as soon as I got to the eend on’t, then come a buz and a mixin, and the Gineral got up and fetched another whack on the table with his hickory, enuf to loosen ones rye teeth. Now, says the Gineral, I’ve hearn both sides, and the people will shortly hear it too. It they say the Major is right, I wont oppo-e them any longer; if they say the Major is wrong, then we’ll go on as we now go; and now s.tys he, Ma jor, git tha? paper printed, and the only favor I ask of you i* not to send an official copy out to the Senate if they ask one;—and with that, I and the Gineral bowed off the Cabinet, and the Ma jors, and the rest of the Government; and we turned to readin letters from all quarters, all full of mony troubles and distress, enuf to give one the cholera morbus; for as I said afore one is jest n U/MI t A A / I <> I 1\«.

France at the time when Mr Livingston left thii j country on his mission, renders it by no meani 'improbable We expressed our conviction, thei ; —founded on what we thought conclusive evi denre—that th<* delay in the execution of thi treaty was to be attributed to an unfriendly dis position on the part of the French Ministry. I | will be remembered that the President, in his las Annual Message, stated that certain documents comprised in the stipulations of the Convention had been withheld, and no satisfactory r' asom assigned for the delay, though the interpositior of the Chambers was not necessary for the deli very of the papers —Balt.

We cannot vouch for its authenticity but it will be seen that our friend declares it en titled to credence. We give it as we receive! if. If correct, we presume that a Message wil be sent to Congress, in relation to it. From our Correspondent. Washington. 26th Dec. 1833. To the editor of :he Republican: • vf have to*a <1 from a source which I consider as lullv entitled to belief, that despatches have been recently received, from our Minister ir Frame, of nature highly interesting to oui M erchants. Mr, Livingston, with the povmpli tude ami energy, which have characterized al the negotiations commenced or continued sinct the succession of General Jackson to the Pre sidency, has urged to the completion of en igagements under the convention concluded by our late Minister Mr. Rives, for the indemnities for spoliations on American Commerce. Tht French Ministers it is stated have thrown every impediment in the way, far as to refuse officia i copies of the condemna 1 <n of 'he vessels se<zec & sequestrated by the Court of Napoleon, contra to the law Maratnne and the law of nations.— This is done under the plea that the Chamber; ! have made no appropriation for the payment ol | the sum agreed upon as the indemnity; but cer | tainly such a pretext ought not to be advanced jas-a reason against granting copies of official documents. Thanks to the energy of the Presi dent, however, the French Government will soon understand the nature of our diplomatic relations with them. In this matter Genera! Jackson expressly avowed yesterday his determi nation that the United States shall not submit tc that which is wrong. It will be sustained by the I Nation, which desires nothing that is not right.’ Neither House of Congress sat yesterday.— The day turned out to be a fine one, and a large proportion of Members of Congress, the For eign Ministers, and other public and private gen tlemen, paid their respects to the Chief Magis trate, who, though apparently in feeble health, received them with his usual courtesv to visitors.

Note — This month, like the corresponding month of last year, has been mild for the season. There have been but two snow storms, and no ice has been formed in the river. The first snow storm was very violent, and fell, as nearly as could be measured, about six inches deep; the second was about two inches deep. 'The first snow storm was succeeded bv a most tremendous gale of wind, of nearly twelve hours duration, varying from N. E. to S. E.,—but the strength of the gale was due East. This occur red on the night of the 16th, During the gale, rain poured down in torrents, which dissolved a vast body of snow, at that time covering the earth, and suddenly created one of the most powerful freshets known for many years. The wharves and streets adjacent to them, in several instances, were inundated. Great da mage was done to a number of small vessels, and • several were sunk w ith their cargoes in the docks. • The water rose so rapidly, that considerable m i jury was done to goods of various kinds in stores, , before they could be removed. \\ ood and lum ber, in abundance, was swept from the wharves, ; and lodged in the sireets, or drifted entirely 1 awav.

M. MORRISON. * ALEXANDRIA, (D. C.) [ FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 3, 1834. | We have no disposition to engage in an unprc fitabie war of words with the Telegraph; but its article on Tuesday, in reply to a few remaiks we made the day previous, requires an answer from us, which we shall make as brief as possible. \ few words will suffice. f The state of the case is simply this. The Te legraph admits that, in order to resist the en croachmrnts of power, there must be a union of those opposed to the arbitrary exercise of power If this union—or coalition—or combination (these words have lost all power to frighten now) does not take place, the Telegraph thinks the counti y will be undone. We put it, then, to the <»ood sense of that print, if there is any wisdom, or propriety, or necessity, for denouncing a portion of the people of this country who do not happen to think as the Telegraph thinks on all political subjects, but who aie willing to go with it, as far it goes, in making head against innovations up. on the purity of the government? And we also put it to the good sense of the Editor of the Te legraph to say if these denunciations do not come with a peculiar ill grace from a quarter in which the present Executive once found its chief sup. port, and from those who mainly contributed to bless the nation with what they are now pleaded to call a curse. As far as we are concerned, however, the Telegraph may denounce to all Atornif o ii iflimif /I i C f 11 .lit n ir nil p cnrnn i I u u . . v*v»»4iwy »» Ikiavta V U ■ v i I kii 11^ WM* ov> vim T - i j y k withers are unwrung.” We are not the ad\o cates of consolidation—we were not the advocates of the “ bloody bill”—every body knows what we think of the Kitchen Cabinet—we are the friends of the true rights of the States. And we are—what we are proud of—what we glory in— the warm, uncompromising, unalterable advo cates and friends of the Liberty and the Union of the States. Is there cause for denunciation it. this? If so, let it come—“ on horror's head let horrors accumulate. ” W e are absolutely disgusted at the abuse whir.;; is poured out upon Mr. McDuffi* by the Admin istration prints; and although it is not for u. particularly, to defend him, we cannot refrain from the expression of our sentiments on the 'uh ject. The time has been when we opposed Mr McDuffie’s political views—to many of them wt are now unalterably opposed—but we never he abated to do justice to his great and commanding talents—to his character as a man—and his in telligerice as a statesman. We always regarded him as a powerful opponent of the men and mea sures we sustained; nor did his repeated succes ses and triumphs serve to lessen our opinion of his talents as one of the leaders of a great politi cal party. We were accustomed, ourselves, to treat Mr. MtDuffie with the respeet which was due to his station and to his personal character, and others seemed disposed to pursue the same touise. However much his movements were de precated—however strenuously he was opposed | —however erroneous his sentiments were consi dered to be—and however vigorously attacked they were—he met with that courteous treatment in general which showed that often his opponent? 4 regretted more that he was not of them, than were angry that he was against them. But what do we now see and hear? Those prints which arc basking in the sunshine of Exe ~ I* - ' - ^ 5 ^ w mvv v 111 ix it u ii j i piujci i uy opprobrious to apply to this gentleman. Abuse is lavished upon him with an open hand, and ail the old and stale tricks of defamation resorted to for the purpose of lessening him in public esti mation. Can this succeed? Can the force of his argu ments be broken—the strength of his reasons be diminished—the pungency of his remarks be neu tralized—by such a course? Surely not. There is too much good sense, certainly, in the people Thomas Wright, Esq. of Queen Anne, has been elected Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates, and Lewis Gassaway, Esq. Clerk of that body. H. P. C. Wilson, of Somerset, has been chosen a State Senator, in the place of Mr Dennis, now a member of Congress. Having no speeches to report to day, we arc enabled to give the latest of Major Do*vning‘= popular letters. The Major’s Cabinet Mamie? to will be anxiously looked for. The Commissioner of the General Land Office complains of the arrears of business in his de partment, and recommends the creation of va rious new officers therein, such as—one chief clerk at a salary of 81,700 per annum; one clerk at 81,500; live at 81,400; ten at 81,150; and I thirteen at 81,000: making, in all, thirty clerks | and also one draughtsman at 81,500; one assist- Ij ant draughtsman at 81,150; one messenger at 8700; and two assistant messengers at 8350. The pressure of the rnonty market at Ne* York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, con tinues unusually great. We might fill our co- I Iumns with extracts on the subject from the jour nals of those cities. The Richmond Enquirer “ certainly does not agree with the President as to the precise time I and manner of withdrawing the Deposites.” ^ has taken the'Enquirer a great while even to sav that much. Probably next week it will open it* mouth a little wider.
