ALEXANDRIA. D. C.
WEDNESDAY MQRN1NG, JANUARY 17. CONGRESS.—The landing theme* yet, Abo lition petitions a ad improvement of the Western wtteu. This has been an unusually mild winter. So far the navigation of the Potomac has not been impeded by ice.___ The amount of the entire interest of the State of Maryland in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company on the 1st October 1843, was $S,670, 436 38. We have received the 6th number of Junius’s Tracts—on Democracy—very well prepared and very useful. We sec published a letter from Mr. Wm. Cost Johnson, of Md. declining to be a candidate fo$. Congress. Wc understand that the Hon. Jacob W. Miller, of the United States Senate, has b^ sailed home by the sudden death of father. He Mf tU p.p* bably he in his place at the beginning of next week. REJECTION.—We learn that the Senate on Monday, rejected the nomination of Mr. Hen shaw to the office of Secretary of the Navy. That office is therefore now vacant. The Richmond Enquirer makes a great to do aboi^t Mr. Mangum’s “mutton dinner” at Wash ington. That dinner after all, was very near being no go—and the boys at the High School, near this place, if wc are correctly informed came within an ace of having the mutton themselves— instead of the dignitaries at Washington !! Pro bably, revrnnns a nos moutons! Many changes in our diplomatic corps will soon tike place. Proffit has been rejected as ^nister to tlie Brazils—Todd and Jenifer will be recalled from Russia and Austria, and Wheaton, probablj translated from Berlin to V ersailles. W ise asks to go to Vienna or Berlin—Got. \ an Ness is a candidate for Mexico. MR. CLAY IN NEW ORLEANS.—The N. Orleans Be© of the 5th instant says:—»\n \r, formal meeting of the House of Representatives, yesterday, Mr. Clark suggested that as Mr. Chy was in the city, the members of the Legislature should visit him in a b:x!y, as a mark of respect and affection. Mr. Taylor modified the motion so as to propose that the members should first vis it Governor Mouto*. This modification wa9 ob jected toby Mr. Ogdon, as it seemed a condition of the visit to Mr. Cut ; as a distinct and inde pendent proposition, Mr. Ogden stated that he would readily agree to it. Mr. Taylor’s proposi tion was, however, agreed to. Accordingly, the members repaired iu a body to the Government House, where they were hospitably received; af ter which his Excellency accompanied them to Mr. Clay’s residence, a id interchanged the com pliments of the season with that gentleman. The whole afTair was creditable t> the liberal feelings of all parties coneerneij. Such occurrences tend to smooth political a^entics, and demonstrate that we can honor exalted statijn and eminent merit, whether in the person cf a Whig or a Loco Foco. I Donation* and contributions o! all sorts tor the cabinet and library of the National Institute are pouring in from every part of the world. Offers and promises of aid, too, arc tendered from all q larters. Already its collections are prodigious h extent and value,* arid aimng them arc inex haustible resources in the way of duplicates, (con tinually increasing,^ by means of which a noble And broad system of exchanges might he adopted and carried into effect on such a scale as would enable the Institute to supply, with curious and rare materials, the cabinets of the Societies and (ollcges of the United States, as well as those of individuals: extending also the same advantage ous intercourse to foreign countries, thereby aug menting its own collections. The Philadelphia Kvening Mercury says: — “Daniel O'Connell, the Liberator, has presented R»bcrt Tyler with a very handsome old family chair. It is an antique, and a great curiosity, hiring been three hundred years in Mr. O'Con udl's family.” We learn from the Centreville Times that a great 1 portion of the town of Millington, Md., was de stroyed by fire on Monday last. The fire cuia lienced in Mr. Thomas Walker’s store and com* p micatcd from thence to the <„ihcr stores and I uses, sweeping away the principal and hand I'oaifst part of the town. 1 Dr. Dennis Claude has been elected, by the Le l-'uture of Maryland, to be Treasurer of the I Me, or rather, as his title is, to be Treasurer of ■ Western Shore of .Maryland. I » > ' I . I By the Southern Mail VIRGINIA HOUSE OF DELEGATES, Jan tart 15.—A message front* the Senate that they | had passed the bills, entitled “An act to amend the act entitled ‘an act forming a new county out of parts of the counties of Lewis, Kanawha and Nicholas’”—44 An act to incorporate the Parkers burg Library association”—“An act releasing Isaac Adkins, of the county of Lcgan, from the payment of a forfeited recognizance”—and “An act constituting a po,rfion of Shenandoah River a lawful fence”—and that the Senate had rejected the bills, entitled “An act authorizing a loan of arms to the Norfolk Academy”—and “An act concerning John Coke, Sergeant of the city of Williamsburg’’—and had agreed to the reso lution for the election, on Friday next, of a Bri gadier General lor the 11th brigade, i In the House, a resolution of Mr. Lewis of Kanawha, to adjourn s*ne die on the 10th FeU-. ruary, was, on motion of ^lr. Leake, amended, ayes 105, noes 20, so as to adjourn the 1st Feb ruary—and was laid on the table. The order of the day came up, being Mr. G3r | nett’s resolution to receive Virginia’s distributa I ble share of the land fund vender the act of 18fl On motion of Mr. Stovall it was amended, ayes 72, noes 53, so as to declare, that the “General Assembly does “solemnly affirm the said act of distribution to be wholly unconstitutional, inex i pedient, arbitrary and unjust ” Mr. Bowden moved further to amend, so as to declare that it i$ “fcCi'ial y unconstitutional and improper lor the State of Virginia to retain in her Treasury the sum of $2,198,060 received by her under the ; Deposite act of General Jackson's adiiiiiiistrailoii, i as it would be to receive said fund of $37,100 48 i cents.” This motion was lost, ayes 56, noes 73 _and the resolution, as amended by Mr. Stovall, j wa* rejected, ayes 61, noes 66. The hill to form a new county out of the coun ties of Harrison, Marion, and Barbour, was amen ed on motion o.f Mr. Morgan, so as to give to the new county and to Ilarnson each a delegate a . «iv „ ..mamaI \ reAvnMf fFKn l»i!l tv n c h v I IVJ 11 Its VltllVI ai 4 J • ---- T V 1 a large vote, ordered to an engrossment. The en ! grossed bill, forming a new county out of parts ot Buckingham, Prince Edward, Charlotte, and Campbell, was taken up. Motions were made by Mr. Anderson to name it “ Appomattox,” and by Mr. Jones, of Buckingham, to call it “Jones,” in memory of William Jones, a native of Buckingham, who was killed at the battle ot Guilford. The House, by a very large vote, christened the new county “Jones.” The bill was then laid on the table, Mr. Jones of Buckingham intimating, that he would call it up next Monday. Several bills were passed, and resolutions adop ted.— Richmond Enquirer. We suspect, from what we have heard, that I Mr. Calhoun’s letter has been returned to him by i his friends at Washington for revision and inodifi j cation. That he has certainly written a letter, is clear from the following extract of a letter ice j lavis (epeived from Washington: “House of Representatives, January 12, M4. “1 will only say, that I have seen a letter to i day from Mr. Calhoun, in which testates that he ! will not permit his name to go into the Baltimore Convention, and that his reasons for the same are given in full to a Senator and will be made know n | in a few days.” Abus Vcrrons. We wait with as much equa 1 nimity as possible for the furthcoming letter. Let it be what it may, Virginia will do her duty ! She has adhered to tier Republican Hag since the adoption of the Constitution. Her principles are inscribed on her banners of US. She has never faltered in the support of them, whilst other .'tales may have hesitated and hung back. She lias always elected the best and most available candidates to carry them out. She will not shrink now, when the danger is most imminent, ami the cnerav most formidable. She never waited till she saw how other States and oilier men would g >. She waits not, I alters not, has not a moment s oouoi or nesuauuu now. one will fall gloriously in the last Hitch, if she has to fill at all—with her face to her foe—or she will again assist to conquer gloriously, and save the Kepubljs. Another rumor comeson the wings ot tha wind from Washington. It is of the mo>i extraordina ry and astounding character A letter repot t>, that on Tuesday la^t Mr. Mungum had a dinnerparty, and that Mr Tyler and Mr. Bott$ were among the guests! Mr. L>. Webster,being then in Washing ton, was present, and also 10 \N lag Senators. 1 A part of the repast is said in the letttr *o have been a fine saddle of mutton, which Mr. Butts had received from his farm, and had previously pre sented to Mr. Mangu a ”—Rich. Ln<j. The Loco tocos’ virtue was put to a severe test, yesterday. Some eight could nut hold out;—but fairly struck their colors—gave up their cherished ' principles for money. But they lost the money after , aB;—four Wmgs being absent on account of in disposition, who, if present, would have tixed an ! everlasting stigma upon this Democratic Legisla I ture, by authorizing the receipt of the land money. The vote stood 64 for, and 66 against reception. The 4 absent Whigs would have made 6d—a ma jority of the whole House—thus showing that the people of this State, are in favor of taking thi* money, and are not altogether so excruciatingly virtuous as some ot their Representatives affect to be. The House, yesterday, adopted an amendment to a resolution for adjournment on the 1st Febru ary. The vote was taken by yeas and nays—and the ayes were upwards of a hundred. A motion was then made to lay on the table, and the yeas and noes not being called, the motion prevailed by an immense majority !—Richmond Whig. I ABOLITION MOVEMENTS AT WASH INGTON.—We understand, that the Committee on the Massachusetts Resolution to amend (say rather abolish) the Constitution, so as to strip the South of her slave representation, and expunge one of the great compromises o* the compact, have met twice. Mr. Adams proposed to adopt the resohuion, and Mr. Gilmer to reject it. At the last meeting, Mr. Adams proposed that he should prepare the reasons lui^th* change, and Mr. Gilmer the reasons against—and that both Rf»rw~irt« «hniilfi then he submitted to the Commit j tee. This arrangement was adopted—and accnr ! dingly we understand, that Mr. Gilmer is busily i employed in researches on the history of the Go verument, and in preparing for the composition of a report, which w e have no doubt will reflect ; great honor on the author, and strongly support the principles of the Constitution. Mr. Adams j has consented to grant him till the 18th of f ebru j ary to prepare the Report. \\ e have some hopes, that it will also be calculated, if any thing can 1 arrest the madness ol tanaticism, to quiet plicae excitements as to slavery. We likewise understand that a caucus was held on the evening of the 15th instant, among the Republican members. An appeal was made to our Northern and Western friends, to say whe ' ther there w as a. v particle of doubt to the i Massachusetts proposition. There was a general response, that they would stand by the compro mise of the Constitution to the death. It is still hoped at Washington, by some of our friends, that this and all our differences may be amicably adjusted.— R chmond Enquirer. We were misinformed in stating that the Cora miUee of Elections had decided in favor of Mr. Gilmer. They are waiting for further evidence from Amherst.—Rich.

Vowell’a wharf, j ■ -- “What a thoughtful, feeling, truthful poet,1 exclaim* the Knickerbocker, “James Russell Lowell has become! Not erroneously did we predict, from one of his early poems in the Knick erbocker, ‘Threnodia on the Death of an Infant,* that ‘to this complexion would he cotr\e last.* Are not these stanzas from‘The Hermitage,* one of Mr. Lowell’s latest efforts, every way admira ble?” The rich man’s son inherits lands And piles of brick and stone and gold, And he inherits soft, white hands, And tender flesh that fea^s th$ cold, Nor dares to wear a garment old: A heritage, it seems to me, One would not care to hold in fee. The rich man’s son inherits cares; The bank may break, the factory burn, Some breath may burst his bubble shares, And soft, white hands would hardly earn A” living that would suit his turn; A heritage, it seems to me, One would not care to hold in fee. What does the poor man’s son inherit? Stout muscles and a sinewy heart, A hardy frame, a hardier spirit; King of two hands, he does his part In every useful toil and art; A heritage, it seems to me; A king might wish to hold in fee. What does the poor man’s son inherit? W ishes overjoyed with humble things, A rank adjudged by toil-worn merit, Content that from employment springs, A l.ii.irt ll» in lf»nr»r <siinfre* A heritage, it Seems to me, A king might wish to lioUJn fee. What does the poor man -sson inherit' A patience learned by being poor. Courage, if sorrow come, to bear it A fellow feeling that is sure To make the outcast bless his door; A heritage, it seems tome, A king might wish to hold in fee. O! rich man’s son, there is a toil That with all others level stands; 9 I \ arge charity doth never soil, But only whitens soft, white hands; This is the be5.; ci.cp Iron* thy land^ A heritage it seems to me, Worth being rich to hold in fee. Oh, poor man’s son, scorn not thv state, There is worse weariness than thine, In merely being rich and great; Work only makes the soul to shine, And makes rest fragrant and benign; A heritage, it seems to me, Worth being poor to hold in fee. B Jth heirs to some six feet of sod, Are equal in the earth at last, Both Children of fhe same dear God; tfrovo title to your heirship vast By record of a well-filled past; A heritage, it seems to me, Well worth a hie to hold in fee.
