A man was found near the Washington j
Bridge, yesterday morning, who had been ex- J
posed to the severity of the previous night, and j
died shortly after he was discovered, He was
a stranger travelling north. A Coroner’s In
quest was held on the deceased, who returned
the following verdict, to wit*
.i \ye of the Jury find that the deceased came
to his death by exposure to the severity of the
weather, on the night of the 20th January,
1834;” and that, from the name marked on the
shirt found on the deceased, [who appears to be
between the age of 50 and 60,] his name is F. G.
Settle. A good pack and several articles of!
clothing were found in his possession.

Extensive Forgeries.—A principal topic of
conversation in Dublin is the flight of John Scott
Vandaleur, Esq., who is charged with forgeries
to a large amount The Bank of England is

have sustained considerable loss.
London, Nov. 24.—A rupture is reported to
have just taken place between France and Swe
• den. Ambassadors have been reciprocally with
drawn: the commercial intercourse between the
two States will continue to be regulated by con
sular agents, but diplomatic relations between
the Courts of Paris and Stockholm have entire
ly ceased. And why all this? we are asked.—
Only on account of a play! Precious absurdity
—and how delightfully striking!
The King of Sweden required the King of
the French to suspend the performance of Gus
tave, ou le Bal Masque, at the French Opera,
and the Camarde au Lit, at the Vaudeville; and
because Louis Philippe refuses, offence is taken
_a rupture ensues; Mon. de St. Simon is re
called from Stockholm, and M. de Lowenheim,
who happens to be absent, is ordered not to re
turn to Paris.
A handsome Hickory Broom was some weeks
ago sent down by a gentleman in Shenandoah
County, Va., to be presented'to Gen. Jackson. j
It is still in this place, but, it is expected, will
shortly be presented, by the hands of Major
Jack Downing, to the President, who at the
same time will hand in the following lines:
Lines, on the presentation of a Hickory Broom to ;
a distinguished personage.
Most “ potent, grave aud reverend5* “ Roman!*
Surpassed, we*re very sure, by no man,
Accept this emblem and kind token—
A Hickory Broom—without words spoken.
Money is scarce, and business dull.—
Reasons, we trust, you’ll take in fall,
Why we can’t leave just now our home,
And to the White House duteous come,
To tell, pro forma, how much we
Think of the K. C. and th’ rest o’ ye.
A Hickory Broom! how apt and true
Is such a present now for you!
The muse inspires us! O the pen!
Fire and faggots! at it, then—
| Sweep—sweep, great sir, the rabble rout:
Leave not behind a single lout
Who dares to call his soul his own;
Asks he for bread—give him a stone.
The rascal set! they to have pap
And slumber gently in the lap
Of office. Flourish the Broom!
Office for us.—Room, boys—Room!
We’re out of breath; we’ve said our say
We send the Broom—hurra! hurra!
On the Removal of the Deposites.
Mr. RIVES rose, and said—Mr. President:
During my connection with this honorable and
enlightened body, I have always felt it better
for me to appear in the capacity of a listener,
than in that of a speaker. There*are questions
and occasions, however, upon which an indivi
dual must either speak, or suffer his silence to
be misconstrued. Such, sir, are the circumstan
ces under which I now address the Senate.—
Sir, the subject which we are considering, is ad
mitted, on all hands, to be one of the greatest
importance. Much of the distress under which
the country is said to be laboring, is attributed
to it. I believe that distress to be considerably
exaggerated, and, I trust, it will be of short du
ration-still, of the fact, that there is distress
and embarrassment in the community, at the
present moment, I think there can be no doubt.
U remains, sir, for us to investigate its nature,
_ and armlir famnrlir Irk /Iiartrina this hiffll
» ■* 1
of the United States. Sir, what have we seen
within a few short months? The whole face of
the commercial community changed; not, as
we were told just now, by the bank standing still,
but by its making a retrograde movement—thus
producing that panic and distress, which is now
so much complained of. Sir, it is vain to tell
us, that all this has been caused by the removal
of the deposites. Even the friends of the bank,
have not asserted that this is the case.. The re
moval of the deposites, sir, is no new occur
rence. They are subject to removal at any
time, and for many purposes.
Will the honorable gentleman from South Ca
rolina, who has alluded to this part of the sub
jact, tell us that it has not yet happened that the
deposites have been reduced to almost nothing?
We are told by a document which is in the pos
session of the Senate, that in March, .’33, when
the protested bill came back from France, there
were only $2,000 in the Treasury. Was not
this a removal of the deposites? But was there
any pressere on this occasion? No, sir; on the
contrary, at that very moment the Bank was en
gaged in enlarging its accommodations. It is
in vain then to tell us, that the removal of the
deposites has produced the present distress. Sir,
an examination of the returns of the Bank must
be perfectly conclusive in this respect. By the
Secretary’s report it appears, that on the *st of
August the deposites in the United States Bank
amounted to seven millions of dollars; and that
on the 1st of December five millions still re
mained, leaving the whole* reduction or remov
al at two-millions; while the curtailment by the
Bank amounted to ten millions. Sir, some oth
er cause then must be found for that curtail
ment than-the removal of the deposites; and
that other cause has been stated in another de
partment of this legislature, by a gentleman,
whose connection with the Bank gives to every
thing he says an almost official importance. We
are told by that gentleman, that it is not the
removal of the money, but the doctrine with
w’hich the removal is connected, that has pro
duced the distress which at present prevails;
the doctrine that the currency is to depend up
on the State Banks; that government has said
the people are to be separated from the Bank.
And what is the object, sir, of the Bank? Its
object is to demonstrate that this separation
cannot be affected without producing distress,
and involving the very existence of this people.
This Sir, is the true motive of the curtailment.
The question is then whether w’e are to yield to
the direction of a Bank, acting under these
principles, or w hether we are not.
I will read Sir. an exhibit, showing the influ
ence possessed by this immense institution.—
Mr. Rives here read a statement of the business
of the bank, snowing the amount of domestic
bills purchased, collected, &c., and continued:—
Thus, Sir, 341 millions is the amount of the
operations of the bank, and can any gentleman
look at this enormous interest thus possessed by
the bank—at its monopoly of the whole circula
tion, and at the manner in which it has mixed
itself up with the interests of the country, with
out feeling a deep sense of the danger of such
an institution. It is impossible that such an in
stitution should fail to exert an influence detri
mental to freedom and the interest of the coun
try. The true source of the evil then—of the
present distress and pressure—is the existence
of the bank.
And how are we to remedy this evil? Are
we to aid the power of the bank, and assist it to
annoy us further? Sir, what will be the effect
of restoring the deposites? I wish to consider
this subject practically. Will it not lead to a
renewal of this institution by which we now
suffer? Why are we to restore the deposites if
the bank charter expires in two years. If we
yield to this bank now—if we suet unab now, how
shall we resist the still greater pressure which
i will be made upon us when it finally winds up
| its affairs—when it will have its circulation of
IS or 20 millions of notes to provide for? A re
storation of the deposites, Sir, will be a renewal
of the existence of the bank. Can any one who
has reflected upon the course of things connected
with this institution, have supposed that we are
tc get rid of this power without some degree of
suffering to the community? Have we forgot
ten the events of the year 1811? The pressure
was then far greater than it is now.
Sir, can any one in reflecting on the proba
ble course of things, imagine that we were to
get rid of this power without some suffering?—
Can we have forgotten the circumstances of
1811-2. That pressure excited great agitation.
Property in Baltimore and Philadelphia fell from
ten to seven dollars. The Senate would acknow
! more practicable than to restore a metallic cur
| ledge that if the termination of the bank when its
outstanding debts were only 14 millions, cau
sed distress it must be much greater now, when
they were sixty or seventy millions. It would
be singular indeed, if any one could expect to
get rid, without pressure, of such an institution,
which for a longtime has been sitting as an in
cubus upon the liberties of the country. But,
Sir. we are told by the gentleman from South
Carolina, that the question was not whether we
should get rid of the bank, but whether we
should have one subject to the Government, as
the State banks are. Can he suppose that the
State banks are more under the control of the
Government than the United States Bank? Can
he suppose that the State Banks, under the con
trol as they are of the several legislatures in
whose appointments the United States have no
influence, can be so formidable? Can he sup
pose that the paltry pittance of the deposites can
j induce them to become servile partizans of the
! Government? In the present reduced state of
i the revenue, we have not above four millions to
divide among four hundred banks. What has
hannenedin our own State? Has the gentleman
not seen that there the boon had not been sup
: posed by some of the banks, to be worth the
trouble which would be attendant upon the
charge of the share of the deposites which would
fall into their possession. But I beg leave to
say to the gentleman from South Carolina, that
that is not the true issue presented, or to which
we are confined. I understood him to say, that
when a proposition was made for a metallic cur
rency, then the question would be fairly pre
sented. I beg leave to say, Sir, that nothing is
rency in a short time. There are vices in paper
currency which ought to be guarded against.
• The great evil of a paper currency consists
in alternate expansions and contractions. Sir,
has that evil been mitigated bv the Bank of the
United States? No, Sir, on the contrary, is it
not obviously increased? The means by which
a metallic currency is to be restored are simple
and safe; but it is requisite first that the Bank
of the United States should cease to exist. It
is obvious that in that event gold will at once
take the place of notes. This would at once
arise from a change in the arrangement in the
mint The circulation of bank notes should be
discouraged and prevented; and it has been
suggested that if it were competent for Con
gress to impose a stamp duty on notes below’
a certain value, their circulation would be ef
fectually suppressed. I state this preparatory
to the establishment of payment in gold and sil
ver and I would pledge myself to produce to
the Senate a plan to bring about so desirable a
state of things. Sir, in contemplation of that
measure, we should be rid of an institution
| which cannot exist conjointly with it.
It may be asked, would I not concur in a
• measure for redressing the injuries which the
bank may sustain? Sir, if any wrong had been
done to the bank, I would feel myself called
j upon to redress the injury; but no such wrong
lias been done. The honorable Senator from
! South Carolina has said that the question is
j confined to the action of the Secretary of the
| Treasury, and he observed that the Bank of the
| United Staes was no farther involved, than
! with regard to the safety of the deposites.
My own opinion on that subject differs
from the Senator, who thinks the money is
j exempt from the power of the Secretary of
! the Treasury. (Here Mr. Calhoun, as we un
: derstood him, said there was doubt on that
| point.) I believe, continued Mr. R., that the
j whole conduct of the Bank, in regard to the
deposites now under consideration, was the
cause of the withdrawal of the deposites. The
; Secretary did it on account of the conduct of
1 the Bank, in violating its charter; and this posi
; tion I will now endeavor to establish.

in the County of Fairfax, four miles and a
half from Alexandria, and ten a half from the Citv of
Washington, in a pleasant and agreeable neighbor
hood, containing
3 9 4 acres.
As this Estate is so generally nown, a particular de
scription of it will be less necessary. The soil is in a
good state of cultivation, having been managed for se
veral years past with a view to its improvement. There
are about two hundred and fifty acres cleared and divi
ded into eight fields, well fenced; the balance is in
wood and timber. There arc from forty to sixty acres
of meadow land, well ditched and drained, part of
which is well set with clover and timothy; the balance
designed to be put down in grass the ensuing fall.
There is a young thriving APPLE ORCHARD, of
about two hundred trees of choice selected fruit, be
sides a variety of excellent summer fruits. This Farm
is delightfully watered; Dogue Run passes through it,
and it abounds in springs of most excellent water,
which continue to tun through the farm in the driest
seasons. The buildings are good, consisting of a large
pStj with four rooms and a wide passage, built very
8*1**] substantially and of the best materials, and every
necessary out house to accommodate a large family.—
The Garden and Y*rd are well designed and improved.
From the house there is a commanding view of the Po
tomac and surrounding country, and for healthfulnesa
and beauty of prospect it is perhaps surpassed by none.
The price and terms of payment will be made known
by application to Gen. JOHN MASON, or
S. H. JANNEY, Alexandria, D. Q.
