WEDNESDAY MORNING, Feb. 9.
We congratulated our readers yesterday at the termination of the case of Mr. Adams in the House of Representatives. The re solutions of censure were first laid on the table: Ayes 106, Noes 93—and then the censurable petition which created the dif ficulty was rejected or not allowed to be received—only forty members voting for allowing it the privilege of being brought .into the House, and these forty voting on mistaken and ultra ground with re gard · to the right of petition. We now wait to see what will be the next scene in the 44 strange eventful history" at Wash ington. The Statement of Mr. Botts, fortified by the evidence which he presents, will attract the public attention, and must sat isfy Judge Upshur himself that he has 'forgotten public conversations, held in «times of excitement. We had a touch of winter yesterday, in ti slight fall of snow. • «-* mtrnrnrn— ■ ■ ■ m Indiana Bonds—Important Movement.— The Legislature of Indiana ha* passed a gene ral law, authorizing associations to take any of (he public works in the State, and pay for the same a1, the cost, in the bonds of the State utpmr ; provided the associations will under take to 6nish a good proportion of the uiifiu iihed work. Some of the works under the « system are of such a charaeter as will not hold out any kind of inducement to finish the same, ... - -l»-_ J : il « Y« n/)iû/\n !f l! wmie uincrs aie i il I UlilÇI Clll· Λ 11V t'i u υ ιυνιι and Indianapolis Railroad is believed to be one of such exceptions· li is now completed fortS mile*,and graded lor as much more.at a cost of one and a half millions. About half a million tviM^topJete (he work. The Phite«lelphia Gazette says :—Money is exceedingly abundant in private hands in this city, but they distrust and dare not invest it in stocks or deposit it in the Banks. We un derstand one house in Market street yesterday had applications from not less than four indi viduals, to take on depositor use if they please, *tim* of money, varying from $500 to $-2000.— Thete a»e small ra pita lists. Large ones are in an equal dilemma. General Jacksox.—Major Davezac's resolutions in the New York Legislature, in structing the Senators and Representatives in Congres* Iron· New York,to urge the passage of a law, "refunding to General Jackson the amount of the fine unjustly imposd upon and paid by him, at the memorable defence of New Orléans," were adopted on Wednesday by the House, by a vote of 63 to 24. A Wise Judge.—Judge Thatcher, of Boston» lately uttered the opinion during the progress of an important trial before him, that u doubtful things are very uncertain The Boston Post is half inclined to doubt the wisdom ol the observation. In a resent case before Judge Story, in the < U. S. Circuit Court at I'oston, his Honor, in ( charging the Jury, remarked as follows: "And I desire to say, that it mav be a mat ter of great doubt, whether, ii the master (of a vessel) set sail on a votage with a crew in euch a state of intoxication as disables them at the tirre from the proper performance of •the ship's duty, and any disaster arises here from, any loss from that disaster would be recoverable from the underwriters under our common policies of insurance. The ship, un der such circumstances, could scarcely he deemed, in the sense of the law, seaworthy 1 ior ihe voyage." ■" 1,1 ■ "■,l* ι III··— I III ^ Special Messenger.—In the proceedings ofthe House of Representatives of Ohio, on the 29th ult., we find the loilowing items: <sMr. McNulty called for the reading ofthe petition and accompanying documents, which file chair decided to be out of order. •«Mr. M«N. took an appeal, and proceeded taread documents in support ol his position, when he was deckled to be out oforder, and thereupon took a second appeal, but subse quently withdrew both. •*Mr. Byington enquired if it ;vou!d be in order k> move that the petition be sent to Hell! "Mr. McNulty moved that the gentleman from Pike be appointed special messenger for iit despatch. •The House took a recess The New York Commercial Advertiser 4%Wc have already men Honed a oequesi ui fifteen thousand dollars to the Protestai t E ptseopa\ Missions, by the late Thomas Otis, Esq. We have now the pleasure to add a bequest of ten thousand dollars, from the same gentleman. to the American Bi hie So ciety. It is to be paid in yearly instalments of one thourand dollars, the first of which has been paid." APPOIN ΓΜΕΝΤ BY THE PRESIDENT, By and with the advice arid consent of ihe Senate. Seth W. Nye, Surveyor and Inspector of the revenue at New Orleans* La. Mwiey Matters.—It was stated, on Sa turday, that arrangements had been made for the payment of the State interest, by means nf some aid to the Pennsylvania Bank; hut we do not know that any final action has been taken· It will be seen by our Harrisburg letter, that the Resumption Bill is yet ou passed in the lower House, while Mr. Ewing's resolu tion to inquire into the expediency of a similar measure, has been adopted by the Senate. .

Ihe Committee in the Senate, to Whoa was referred the bill from the House relative to the resumption of specie payments, made a report on Saturday, accompanied bv a new bill.

Carrageen has acquired great reputation, and the confidence ol many eminent Physi cians as a remedy in the early stage of Pul monary diseases. The Syrup now offered to the public combines the virtues of Carrageen as well as some of the best expectorants οί" the Materia Medica, which have been select ed as adjuvants· Many of the articles used for the cure of pulmonary diseases possess expectorant qual ities only, and although they afford temporary relief, have no tendency to support the strength ol the patient, but on the contrary reduce the strength and thereby increase the disease. Whereas the compound now offer ed, will be found not only to promote ex.^c toration,but also to possess tonic and strength ening properties, and at the same time reliev ing the cough and thereby curing the disease. This Svrup is not offered as a specific, but will be found generally effectual in the cure of chronic Cousrhs, Asthmas, &c.,and obstinate pulmonary Diseases. A supply of the above, received and ior sale at HENRY COOK'S, feb8 Dru? Store, King street. HEADACHE.

ECOMMUH JCATEP.J In pursuance to public notice a large and respectable meeting of the merchants, trad· ers, and citizens of the town of Alexandria, assembled on the evening of the 7th inst. at the Reading Room, in the Lyceum Hall, for the purpose of memorialising Congress to char· ter a Company, to be styled the "Mutual Ma rine Insurance Company of Alexandria.1' On motion, Leonard Marbury was elected Chairman, aud James H. McVeigh, Secretary. The meeting was addressed by Lewis Mc Kenzie in a brief, but practical speech, shewing the disadvantage* that our city sustains in the absence of such a com* pany. He produced facts to show that Alex andria pays annually to Insurance Companies in New York and elsewhere, a very large a mount—and hut a very small amount hat been received for losses. In recommending a formation of such an Institution in our city, Mr. McK. brought forward statements of faôls, such as cannot fail to recommend the contemplated Institution to the favourable consideration of our merchants and citizens. The address was listened to with evident in terest and attention. On motion, the following committee were appointed to draft a memorial to Congress to charter said Company:— Wm. Morrell, 1 Francis L. Smith, I Reuben Johnsion, Win. N. McVeigh. Robt. Jamieson, Lewis McKenzie. J On moiion, the proceedings of the meeting v;ere directed to be published in the Alexan dria Gazette.

The Lamps have been five or eix years i· use, hut lately much improved by the paten tee, so that the oil circulates freely eaeh aide of the wick, and it operates and burna beauti fully· . I'.lU^The Public are cautioned against in fringers' Lamps, as they are deceptively made· and do not give satisfaction in using them, and by this means the genuine Lampe are injured. " S.

DIRECTIONS. In taking out or putting in the stopper, do not take hold of the top of the tube so as to close it on the wick, as the top of the tube should be kept swelled out wide for ventila tion. Take hold of the roller to unscrew or screw in the ifoptier, as the roller ω made auT ficientiy strong for this purpose. The wick should never he picked open or brushed oil, as some do, but always trimmed off smooth and straight with the top of the tube with sharp scissors. Should the îuhe get closed in so as to even touch the wick, it should be swelled out again wide,the wider the belter, so the air can circulate freely round the wick, and the lamp will burn clear and handsome· No wick should be used-but what is a little narrower, or ct least no wider than the inside ol the tubes. These are Oil and not Camphine * rni I _ .·> Lamps as some suppose ι ucsc inmi», WW ««V «· the tube is kept swelled oui «vide at the top can never crust up when burning, like the common round tub? lamps, and (he gasa which is created in ail oil by heat, has lo escape at the top of the tube by the side ol the blaze, (as there is no other ventilation as in other lamps,) which of course must burn up in place ol beiog offensive in the room.
