The Committee of the House of Represents-1

of the Governor’s Message us related to the Ci- f
tation ol the Supreme Court of the United
States, has made two reports, as customaiy
now-a-days, a majority and minority report.
The first, we presume, speaks the opinion of the ;
Union party, and the latter the Nullifiers. 1 he
first contains the principle of Nullification, a
little disguised—the latter openly and avowedly.
We see no other difference between them. The
majority report concludes with the following
resolutions:
Your committee impressed with these views,
respectfully recommend for adoption the follow
ing resolutions.
Resolved by the Senate and house of Uepie
sentatives of the State of Georgia in General

Arrival of tiie Constellation.—Tlie I'nit
ed States frigate Constellation. Captain Read,
from the Mediterranean station, came in
into our Capes on \\ ednesday last, and, the
weather being thick and boisterous, anchored
on the Middle Ground, until ye»terduy morning,
wlien site weighed and stood up to the bite of
Craney Island, where she is now anchored.
The Constellation left Mahon the 2d October,
and Gibraltar the 13th; and since leaving the
Western Islands lias had remarkably bad wea
ther.
The cholera, which had prevailed in Spam
during the summer, reached Mahon about the
middle of September, at which time the Constel
lation was in that port, and we regret to state
that the disease broke out among her crew.—
From the time the Constellation lelt Mahon un
til she had been nine days in the Atlantic the
disease continued to prevail; the number ol ca
ses during that time amounted to between nine
ty and a hundred, and the number of deaths to
nineteen, including passed midshipman IIoratio
G. Myths, of South Carolina, the only officer
who fell a victim to this fatal disease.
The United States ship Helaxcare. Commo
dore Patterson, was on the coast ol Syria, and
was expected to leave Alexandria shortly for
Mahon, touching at Tripoli and Tunis. The
schooner Shark, Lieut. Commandant Paulding.
hail arrrived at Malta from Alexandria, and
1 was also expected at Mahon. The frigate I'uil
I eri Slates, Captain Mallard, was at Smyrna, gi
ving convoy to merchant vessels. It was re
ported that the United Slates ship John Adams.
Captain Connor, had passed Gibraltar, bound
up.
The Constellation lias brought over tlie fine
marble statues, emblematical ol Peace and IL/r
intended to ornament the Capitol of the l nited
States. They were executed, it will be recol
lected, by that admit able artist Lons Persico. i
and are said to be splendid specimens of sculp- I
tore As the work of the artist is exhibited in a
back view of the figures as well a^ in front, it is
expected that they will be placed in the Hall of
the House of Representatives, on each side of I
the Speaker’s Chair, and not in the vacant ni
chesol the Rotunda, as has been surmised. M.
Persico has also executed a fine bust of Gene
ral Jackson, which is iSso on board the < ’onstel
lation. M. Persico himself accompanies these
valuable memorials ol his genius, to Washing
ton, whether the Constellation is ordered to con
vey them.— Norfolk Herald.
BONAPARTE’S OFFICERS IN AMERICA
| From (fte Military ami Xaral 1 1a"azin°.~\
A short time after the battle of Waterloo, ma
ny French officers of the late Imperial Guards,
seeking refuge from the hostilities ol the Bour
bons, came to the United States; among whom
were the illustrious individuals who composed
Ihe Emperor’s stafT—Marshal Grouchy, Gene
rals Lallemand, Lelebvre Desnonetles, and
others of similar rank. Suddenly thrown out
ol their brilliant grades, and scarcely rid of the
dust of their last engagement, they repaired to
Philadelphia, where they observed till the eti
quette of rank and distinction, with military
punctuality, as iu the glittering camp of the
field.
Being in their company at a boarding house,
I had an opportunity of hearing their various
opinions and private notions. Around the di
ning table were seated some twenty officers; a
precious group of the remains of the grand ar
my. Marshal Grouchy addressed his aid upon
the propriety of cutting off his mustachios.—
“ Colonel,” said he, “ coupcz run moustaches! we
are in a country in which we must conform to!
its manners and customs.” “Ah!” replied the!
Colonel, with tears in his eyes and rubbing
down his mustachios, “I cannot, General, these t
wore at Jena, Marengo, and Auterlitz; amputate
I any limb, but suffer my mustachios to remain
where they are.” *‘ Well,” replied Grouchy,
“ abide with the consequences; you will see hun
dreds of l*iys at your heels, like another Pour
ceaugnac.”
“Major, said another General, “cense to
wear your heavy cavalry boots and spurs;
they will attract the eyes of the citizens, and
throw great ridicule upon vou.” “ I'rntre Saint
i Gris!”" replied the little Major, “they are the
I same I wore at Waterloo; 1 am too much at
tached to them.” “ Fh, bien, Messieurs,” spoke
! General Lelebvre,“let the mustachios and spurs
be worn, the owners will soon be glad to get rid
( of them.”
“Tres bien,” exclaimed an old weather-!
i beaten Captain, (who was continually drawing
on a piece a paper a host of little Napoleons.) “but
our uniforms must not be worn,as we are no long
er in France.” Let us preserve them,” said Mar.
shalG—for the return of our Petit Corpo
ral ” f Napoleon was in the army lamilarly tai
led the little Corporal.] “ All***! HemanT
cttnC (we must submit)exclaimed Lallc manrt.
• Although it was a pleasing sight to ''dness so
many distinguished officers, who had swelled
the roll of their country’s fame, and had figured
upon the theatre of war, during the most d sas
trous campaigns, yet there was a melancholy
pleasure in viewing these heroes of niodtin
days, in a strange land, far from their impel m
master, whom they continued to adoie.
Many years have passed since these veteians
were pining upon these peaceful shores, ai
from “ la belle France.” In the course of time,
they have all been recalled, with the exception
of General Ilenry Lullemand, author of the
well known “ Treatise on Artillery lor the Unit
ed States Army,” who died at Burlington, New
Jersey; and Lefehvre Desnouettes, who peiisli
ed with the Albion, on his return to Europe.
It is a happy circumstance for history to le
cord, that, although France murdered the I mice i
de la Moskwa.'(Ney,) the “bravest of the |
brave,” and the immortal Labeydoyere. she has
received with open arms her glorious sons ot
immortality, who continue to enjoy the honois
due to their rank. __ '

TOWN MEETING.
At a public meeting of the citizens of Alexan- ,
dria. held at the Town Hall on the 21th instant,
in relation to the proposed Chesapeake and ;
Ohio Canal Convention, Bernard Hooe, the
Mayor of the town, was called to the C hair, and
Edgar Snowden appointed Secretary.
The proceedings of the meeting of the citizens
of Alleghany county, Maryland, being read, on
motion of George II. Smoot, the following pre
amble and resolutions were unanimously a
dopted.
Whereas at a public meeting, held in the town
of Cumberland, in Alleghany County, Mil. on
the 18th day uf October last, the citizens there
of did recommend at said meeting, that all
States. Towns and Counties, interested in the
further extension and completion of this great
national work, should meet in general Conven
tion at the city of Baltimore, on the Sth of De
cember next, for the purpose of carrying into
effect, such measures as may promote the spee
dy completion of the Chesapeake and Ohio C a
nal to the Coal Mines: and wheieusthe citizi ns
of this town feel, in common with theii fellow
citizens of the District, Maryland, Virginia and
Pennsylvania, and the Western States, a deep
interest and solicitude in the early completion of
said Canal: Therefore
Hesolud, That this Meeting considers the
, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal as an enterprise of
I great national, as well as local, impoitance,
and intimately connected with the present and
1 future prosperity of the Town of Alexundiia.
Handled, That a Committee of Seven, in
connexion with the Mayor, he appointed by the
Chair to represent this Town in the said Con
vention to be held at the City ol Baltimoie on
the eighth of December next.
The Chair then appointed the following gen
tlemen to compose the Delegation, viz: Phineas

The following resolution was submitted and

It,solved, That, this Meeting considering the
Town of Alexandria the natural tei initiation of
the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, the Delega
tion appointed be requested to set before tl e

the interests of the town in connexion with that
great work, and the other important interests
it is calculated to advance.
On motion, it was
Itesolved, That the proceedings of this meet
ing be published.
On motion, the meeting then adjourned.

Mr. Wilde of Georgia, having been invited to
a public dinner by his friends in Augusta, has
written a characteristic letter in reply, declin
ing the invitation. It is rather egotistical, and
; somewhat affected—but, on the whole, contains
much wit and good sense. We are sorry that,
after the ensuing session, we are to lose Mr.
Wilde from his seat in Congress.
Interesting Ceremony.—The remains of
twenty-eight seamen and marines, who perished
by the explosion of the United States Receiving
Ship Fulton, at New York, in June, 1829, were
disinterred and removed on Wednesday last,
under the escort of a marine guard, followed by
the officers of the station, and a detachment of
seamen and marines, to the Naval Hospital bu
rving ground, and deposited in a stone vault
prepared for the purpose, preparatory to the
erection of a monument to their memory.
The appearance of Mrs. Butler’s forthcoming j
work is becoming the subject of very general
interest. It appears from the following para* ;
graph, extracted from the Boston Statesman, '
that the public will not be kept much longer in
suspense. The editor says—i; This book will be (
issued from the press, verbatim el literatim, from
Mrs. Butler’s original notes, penned at the time j
of which she speaks. The London edition will
be word for word, the same as the American
edition; the printed sheets being sent from Phil
adelphia as soon as worked off, to the English
publisher. The publication will be .simulta
neous on both sides of the Atlantic. If on great
er familiarity with America, its manners and
customs, the first impressions of the authoress
are modified, it will he so stated in notes, with
out meddling at all with the body of the work.”
We learn from the Ohio papers that great
efforts are making in Michigan Territory pre-!
paratory to claiming admission into the Union
as a State. Some of those engaged entertain
the opinion that this can be done independent
of any action of Oo^ress. This claim appears
to u» untenable.
Election Riots in Mo.ntkeal.— We are sorry
to perceive that our Canadian neighbors carry
on their suffrage system” even more boistei
ously than we are sometimes in the habit of do
ing in these “ free and enlightened Republican
States.” \ ery gross outrages were perpetrated
by the populace during the recent elections, in
various places, and in Montreal the mobs were
guilty of very great and serious excesses—fire
arms havin'/ been resorted to.
The Washinton Globe claims Gen. Ripley of
Louisiana, and Gov. Reynolds, of Illinois,
members elect of the next Coni/ress, as
“ friends and supporters of the present Adminis- •
tration.
The Columbia Typographical ? ch-ty. ti,tn
their Committee, have opened a correspondent,*
with the employers of this ! >istt ict, in relation t„
the establishment of a regulation respecting ths
number of boys taken as apprentices to the
printing business—and aLo as to the adoption
of some system by which tliosc who are viciou<
degraded, immoral, or ignorant, may be
eluded from the printing offices. We approve
of the object that the Society has in view. |t
is time that the attention of employers, jour
neymen. and young men who are learning the
business by a regular course of instruction, and
fitting themselves to he useful and rospectable
journeymen, should take this matter into con
sideration. We should like to see the “ art." jn
this respect especially, to stand on elevated
ground.
Another thing that should be inquired into
and stopped, is, the permission sometimes allow,
ed in the low printing offices, to vagabond boys,
who stay long enough in one place to learn h««
to put together a few type, to rove from office'
to office, injuring the employers, corrupt^
their associates, and ultimately ruining them
selves. These “ruts'' should be “ferrtlted"
out of every “Chapel” by every printer, anda
mark should be set upon them and those that
harbor them.
Men and l’RiNCiei.Es.—The present Mayor of
Boston, the Hon. Theodore Lyman, jr., is a
Jackson man. He was elected without stren
uous opposition, and has filled his office uell.—
The recent election in Boston has shown that
the Whigs have the entire control of the city,
and yet at a meeting of the Whig commit
tees, Mr. Lyman has been unanimously no
minated for re-election, and the Boston papers
all announce the fact in strong teims of appro
bation.
It is now ascertained, from Yeiumiit. that
Henry K. James (Anti-masonic) has been elect
j ed to Congress from the loth district, by a ma
jority of about 105. Mr. James was chosen at
the same time to till the vacanc y in the present
Congress, occasoned by the death of Mr. firm
ing. _

A mi: in can l iia.mi* aiuxe —The vine appears lo
be successfully cultivated for wine in the vicini
ty of Baltimore. Mr. G. Fitzburgli writes to the
| American that about 20,000 vines, principally
the llerbemonte, Lenoir, Catawba, Bland, and
I Isabella, all natives, have been planted within
the last 1 years. The American also acknow
ledges the present of a bottle of sparkling Her
bemonte, made in August 1S32, and bottled in
March lsu.'k which “ rexemhles clianipaigrein
color, flavor, and briskness, and is siipeiiorto
1 much that is sold under the fascinating name of
