Our CMi itry?ahvay* rl,;ht-*but, ris'a or ivi jj. <v.tr Coitjitr; SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1839., orrice ox e street, in the square immediately WEST OF THE BURNT POST OFFICE. OQhAII coninri'inicatioiu for this paper should be ad dressed to JAMES C. DUNN. THE CONTESTED ELECTION. I lie difficulty in the House of Representatives, which we alluded to in our last, was on Monday partially overcome by the election, on the llih trial, of the Hon. R. M. T. Hunter of Virginia, , he having received 119 out of 232, the number of votes then taken. The Speaker elect was con ducted to the chair by Mr. Lawrence of Massa chusetts and Mr. Banks of Virginia and the oath to support the Constitution of the United States was administered by Mr. Williams of North Car olina, who, he being the oldest member, is tech nically called "the father of the House." On Tuesday the Speaker, on taking the chair, made' his acknowledgements to the House, in a very j neat and appropriate address. The Speaker claimed to be considered as standing in a neutral position as relates to the two great party divisions ol the House and of the country; and, being thus une:i barrassed by party ties, he professed his de termination to administer tlio duties ?f his high office, with strict impartiality, and pledged him self, whilst affording in his selection of commit tees, to the administration, every fair opportunity of bringing their favorite measures of policy to the consideration of the House, to furnish the amplest scope to the opposition to push the most searching investigations o'fthe abuses or supposed abuses of the Government. We cannot omit to congratulate the country upon the choice so happily made by a majority of their representatives, as we doubt not that his pledges will be redeemed in good faith, and that the course which the Speaker has marked put for himself, will result in measures highly beneficial to the country, and in the highest degree tend to elevate himself in the estimation of every true friend of the Union. Notwithstanding the House thus attained a most important step in its organization, the whole difficulty is yet far from being overcome. The Speaker, in administering the oath required by the Constitution to the members of the House, found that all the members from the State of New Jersey, (including Mr. Randolph, whose right has not been contested,) holding the Commission of the Governor of their State as the only legal pri ma facie evidence of their right to seats in ihe House, had presented themselves before him and demanded to be sworn as members. After hav ing administered tho oath to Mr. Randolph, the Speaker resumed his chair and stated the fact to the House. He remarked that as the House had, during its preliminary organization, thought prop er to pass a vote on the rights of the five dispu ted members of New Jersey, he considered it proper to submit the question of right to the House itself, declaring at the same time, that had no such preliminary action have taken place, he should have considered it his duty to have admin istered the oath as required by the Constitution and the act of 1789 to all who presented them selves with regular legal credentials. Upon this new form of the question the House have ever since been engaged in warm and ear nest debate, and so far as a mere spectator can judge, no correct opinion can be formed as to the probable result of the question or of the period of its determination. In presenting this short view of the state of the case to our readers, we cannot refrain frem again adverting to the original carrsc of a state of things, so pregnant with matter of deep and serious import to the welfare of the country and the perpetuity of the Union. We have carefully examined all the statements which have been pro mulgated by both parties and the friends of both pjrties. All agree in [he fact, however they may differ in the inferences from it, that the only first cause of the serious dilemma into which the rep resentatives of the people have been placed for three weeks, was the admission of the votes of large numbers of foreigners, the greater number of whom were undeniably aliens in the strictest legal sense, and all of them alien to our laws, customs, manners and institutions. The majori" ty of the people of New Jersey have manifested, in the subsequent election in their state, the great est indignation at the gross violation of their rights and the attrocious outrage upon the feelings of the native citizens committed by the managers of the election of 1838. The Governor and Privy Council, who commissioned those returned by the county clerks as elected by the American vo ters, have been triumphantly sustained by a re election by a largely increased majority; the great question presented to the people in the election of 1839, being the propriety or impropriety of the rejection of the foreign or alien votes received in 1838. We care not what was the party complexion of the candidates in the election ol 1838; we care not what may be the party character of the Governor and Council ,* we care not what effect the question may have upon the success or de feat of the present administration. Hut we do >tare for the influence whieh the agitation of the question is likely to have, in arousing public at tention to the vital question which we have sought to keep in view? Whether our national govern ment is to depend upon the support ofinlermedling foreigners, or to rise or fall according to the as oertuinod vvill of native" cilizc.ii alone? Wo have before paid, r.iul wc repeat, that it is, in fact, but of little moment, whether Whigs or Demo crats triumph for a time in out political contests. Mr. Jefl'orson said truly, so far as it is confined to our own people, that "*ve are brethren of the same principle. We are all Federalists, wc are all republicans." So say we?the native citizens are brethren of the same principle. The wel fare of the republic is our only consideration, however we may differ as to the means of secur ing it. But so long as we permit the intermed ling of foreigners?the thrusting into onr affairs of outcasts of every clime?the intermingling in our national discussions of the out-landish notions and feelings of strangci-3 to our laws and stran gers to the scope and objects of our form ol Government, we can expect nothing but confu sion and discord, and an absence of all unity in political sentiment and harmony in political ac tion. Like the builders of the Tower if Babylon, we shall be scattered by the utter incompetency of the people (so called) to comprehend each other either in the ideas conceived, or the lan guage used to convcy those ideas to each other. We have laid before our readers the cause of the great disease under which the Republic is now suffering. We have, wc think truly, pointed out the only remedy, we again call on all Native Americans to apply that remedy without further delay. Let all, without distinction of party, | unite in one determined and vigorous effort to ar rest the progress of the disease, before it is too late. That remedy is, THE REPEAL OF THE NATURALIZATION LAWS. Con gress cannot, will not, dare not resist the voice of the people, when that voice is rung in their ears, in earnest and energetic tones. Fioil the New Orleans Native American. LETTER OF CAPT. ISAIAH DOANE, THE LATE PRESIDENT OF THE LOUISIANA NATIVE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION. It has been our determination for some time past to lay before our readers the following letter, which was received from the lamented Captain Isaiah Doane at the time of his election to the Presidency of the Louisania Native American Association. ? From the events which have subsequently oc curred in our city and state, the language of this letter may be regarded in the light of prophecy* From a feeble and impotent body we have be come numerous and powerful, not only in our city and state, but in the adjoining states, and such responsive echoes of our opinions are daily received from every quarter of the United States, not only from private communications, but through the deep toned murmurings of the press, and should convince us that the principles we ad vocate lie near the heart of every patriotic Native American, and will ere long burst forth from the mass of the people in such omnipotent thunders to our rulers, as will compel them to lay aside for a time their petty bickerings, and direct their at tention to the protection of our country from the foreign crusade which is waging against her by the despots of Europe, whose myriads are now crowding hither with foreign Jesuits for leaders, to make a peaceful conquest of this " Holy Land." Let us then look with solemnity on this letter as a voice from the tomb,?for " though dead he yet speaketh"?let us consider it as the last will and testament of a departed one, who, during his earthly existence, like the Revolutionary Patri archs, perilled his life and shed his precious blood freely to protect the hallowed institutions which have now been confined to our care. Let us perform our duty faithfully to our coun try, and whenever opposition rages, and the bil lows of foreign malignity runs high, let every man engaged in this holy cause recur to this in spiriting letter, and resume with renewed confi dence the patriotic duties to which we have ded icated ourselves. New Orleans, December 27, 1838. To the Members of the Native American Asso ciation of Louisiana. Gentlemen : I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of a letter from the Secretary of your Society, under date of 21st inst., informing me that I was elected, on the 20th inst., as'President of your Society. For this distinguished honor be pleased to accept my thanks. I regret tl? precarious state of my health will prevent me from acting with the zeal and effi ciency that the occasion calls for, and that my feelings would prompt. I will hold the honora ble office in trust until a more efficient gentleman can be selected, when I will with pleasure resign and take a more humble situation. In conversation with several gentlemen strong ly in favor of our Association, they have express ed doubts relative to our success, observing that there are too many obstructions in our way. Let me ask any American, to what cause are we in debted to our present freedom ? What induced the band ol pilgrim fathers, who landed at Ply mouth Rock, on an inhospitable coast and at an inclement season ? What was it but obstructions? What caused our Revolution, and our subsequent independance ? Obstructions. I o what are we indebted for our inestimable constitution, our free institutions, the tolerations of all religious wor ship, and, in fine, all the blessings we enjoy ?? Obstructions. These obstructions, instead of damping our energies, serve as a stimulous to ac cellerate us on our march to ultimate success.? You are, no doubt, well aware that wo may ex pect opposition and persecution, collectively and individually, which must be met by a calm and firm front.' Relying on the goodness of our cause, we will meet "all objections and gather fresh strength fromtresh opposition. With clear heads and sound firm hearts we will pledge ourselves to each other never to relax our exertions until succcss crown and reward our energies. In the present aspect of affairs we have fearful odds to contest against?nearly one-fourth of the present population of the United States will be arrayed against us; but there remains not a doubt on my mind of our ultimate succcss. Let us unite all our zeal and energies tn one single ob ject, viz: the abolishment of the naturalization laws, which like the polar star to the ancient 'navigators, was the only star in the heavens that knows neither diminution or variation, all other questions, many of which now agitate the whole country from Maine to our utmost Sabine, sink into insignificance in comparison to this. Throw them all to the winds ami stea lily adhere to the 'otic single point. How, would i ask, flail wc re deem our pledges, made thousa -ds of times over, in every nook and corner of our bjoved country, viz : to transmit to po-'erity the inestimable blessings we inherited fro::i our fathers, purfl ami unsullied as we received them, while an 1 ictf hus is fastened on our vita's. A moments reflec tion should convince the present foreign popula tion of the United Stated that the objects of this Association, so far from being injurious to them, will be beneficial, inasmuch as they will all be come citizens, and the boundaries being contract ed, they will be enhanced iii value. Hut I much fear we need expect no liberality 011 their part. The slanders that have been heaped upon us on both sides of the Atlantic, for six years past, de monstrate that nothing is too base or vil > for them to heap upon us. The f reign population of the United Stules may well be compared to two of the principle elements, fire and water?they make good servants but bad masters. I shall be compelled to ask the indulgence of the society for my absence from thetregular meet ings of the Association during my present pros trate state of health. Willi much respect, gentlemen, Your obedient servant, IS A f VH DOANE. The House of Representatives decided last night by a vote of 110 to 112, that the Jersey men, with the Governor's credentials, \t ere not entitled to their seats. Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.?The Williams port Banner of Saturday says : " The breach in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, lately referred to, has been repaired, and for some days the trade to the Atlantic borders has been quite active. The large amount of produce, which had been pre viously accumulated as this place, has, we under stand, all been forwarded. The balance, which is not yet in a state for transmission, will, during the winter, take the route of Frederick and the railroad. The navigation may yet be kept open for some time, unless the weather should prove nnsually severe. Our southern latitude gives this section of the country decided advantages over our northern neighbois, in the protracted v inter course by canals." THE WESTERN DORCAS SOCIETY, In resuming their labors for the present season, anticipate greater demands on them than at any former period, as the pressure of the times affects all classes. What, then, must not the poor suf fer, unless the benevolent, aided by the blessing of the Author of all good, would provide them with food and comfortable raiment to protect them from the chilling and piercing blasts of winter? The Society, in presenting their 21st Annual Report, feel persuded that their former patrons and the Public will still aid them in their eflorts to relieve the poor by providing for them those garments which may in some degree alleviate their sufferings, and for other privations which they must endure. They distributed last winter 140 garments, and received $170; $51 of the amount was a donation from the bricklayers ol the Treasury building. The Society will receive with sincere thanks any donations in money or domestic goods. SARAH R. PORTER, Dec. 10, 1839. - Secretary. Frozen Gas?Among the wonders of chemical science Dr. Webster has astonished the Bostoni ans by his beautiful and successful experiments in rendering carbonic acid gas (that which we inhale in snch quantities at soda fountains, &c.) solid by congelation. It was taken from the cylinder in which it was condensed, and handed round 011 plates, in pieces about the size of a walnut, and by the time it reached the back part of the room it had vanished, and the plates were returned empty. The gas in a solid form, is of pure white ?being much in appearance and consistence like magnesia. It is so cold that a blister is produced 011 the finger in a few seconds by bringing it in contact, in consequence ol the rapid extraction of its heat; and mercury mixed with it immediately congeals and becomes solid. At the close of the lecture, the Doctor informed the audience that the gas wrapped up in cotton could be preserved some [hours, and that cotton was provided for those who wished to carry some home. A Challenge to the Field.? The editor of the Worcester ^Egis, Hon. William Lincoln, closes a controvcssy with the Worcestei Palladium, by offering to the editor of that print honorable sat isfaction in the field?the weapons to be hoes? each of the parties to dig one acre of potatoes? and he whose work is done the best in the short est time, to be declared the victor. Should the challenge to mortal potatoe digging be accepted, the editor of the iEgis will transmit the size of his hoe by a friend who will arrange the prelim narics for the settlement of all difficulties.?
