FROM 'WASHINGTON": Feb. 34. It is very provable that there Will be some warm work in the Housed Ilepeescmatives in the course of the present weok, as it is deter mined bv the administration, as I am told, that the Harrison among theBdckeves. ThcOhio Siato Journal of the 31st tilt, says The tide is turning in earnest. A number of recent Van Buren men oi Stark and v avne had sent us a letter, which we received this morning, direct New Jersey contested election shall be Drought to ug tQ secure 00( quarters for them on the a close before next Saturday iugiit. j 23d Converts are always welcome and they i.ne suojeci is now uuiu.o - .ii u,v mmrtprs lution to nrinf that resolut on will probably bo a- stlal1 e quarteis. mindof Kio Iningtho naked question before In Ross county there is a great rally among the House- 'which ot the two aeiegauons iroiu , me ieuow soiuiers uuu ciuacus m uiu uug wau- Js'ew Jersey shall be elected,' and the result can V l..

The administration possess votes enough to en able thbjn to control the matter, and you .may be Vci'ircU that it will act without one moment's hesi- occ n'u uiiii' ii tntibh. It will .decide mat uie gentlemen trom . Jersey, who hold tficcrtificates yf Gov. Penning ton shell not be allowed seats, and that the other partv shell. Whether this will be wright, or whether it wiu be wrong, it is not for mo to decide, for I have not seen the testimony in the case. A majority of the Committee on Elections, as J you are aware, nas expresseu lis opinion on viirht nf thp T.nr.o Facets to seats, or. the score of M 1 " v -w I majorities; but it has not yet officially reported the fact. I may err in my calculations, but it is my unqualfiod opinion that, right or wrong, the New Jersey Loco Foco Delegation will be in their seats boforc next Saturday night. As soon as this vexed question is .settled, and its adjudication may cause some acts of confusion and violence, the sub-treasury bill will be taken up and passed without much-delay. Not more than three or four days debate -will bo allowed it before it is forced through the House, by the application of the Previous Question. The sub-treasury dill disposed of, the contested election between Mes srs. Naylor and Ingersoll will be taken up. Mi. Clay, I am told 03-one wno I suppose knows, will in May next resign his seat in the senate, and retire to the classic retreat, and lawns, and saloons of Ashland. It is not very probable that he will he or can be induced to forego this determination. in candidate. Arrangements are bemjr made - v ' by the Harrison and Tyler men of Ross, io inarch from Chillicothe for Columbus, on the 19th inst. to attend the State Convention of the 23d ; all good men and true, disposed to join the expedition, arc requested to cuter their names, and advised to " procure each a tin cup and a knapsack, with four day's rations." The Ohio Confederatejpublished at Columbus and heretofore a Jackson Van Buren paper, has come out openly for Harrison, and the edi- tor avows his determination to support him for the next Presidency. Vhe Scioto Gazette, published at Chilicotho, says : " We hoar every day of new recruits to the cause of Old Tippecanoe." It is quite plain that the Buckeye State is in earnest in support or its well tried son. That the Log Cabin candidate will carry the whole West, is already beyond a reasonable doubt. FROM HARRISBURG. February 20. IE? The way the Government settles with her Loco-Foco defaulters is a caution. The lands of W. P. Harris, defaulter, of Mississippi, who was only $00,000 minus in his accounts, were recently levied on. They were estimated at $30,000, and sold for 300 the brother of the defaulter purchas ing it. The Marshall took an opportunity to put it up when no other person was present. Arkansas is moving vigorously in favor of Harrison. The popular feeling is carrying all before it.

There was another great Whig meeting at the Capitol in Kentucky, on the 20th ult. The Commonwealth gives full and glowing details. Many ladies wore in the lobbies. Gen. Combs, one of the Harrisburgh delegates, spoke for nvo hours with great ability, and was constant ly interrupted by the irrepressible enthusiasm which his eloquence excited. It revived, says the report, 1 all the glories, and disasters, too, of the NorthWestern Campaign, and there were many present who could have bor.'ie their testimony to the truth and vividness of his sketches. There were around him the old soldiers of Harrison, and a multitude, now in their manhood, whose first recollections were last' war. associa'cd with the events of the This emphatic sentence follows : 1 If that speech were made in every County in the U. S., we do not believe that that Mr. Van Buren would get 20 doctoral votes in the whole college. Gen. Combs ought to Write out the speech and let the press, circulate it to the extremities of the union, it would do good every where. nenave no count 01 it. ro man in our country was ever more undorvifjueJ than the old veteran of North Bend.

After two or three questions ljad been taken on unimportant amemdments, on motion of Mr. Hopkins, the committee rose, and leave to sit again was refused, so that on Monday next the bill will come up on second reading. A bill in relation to Justices of the Peace was then con sidered in committee of the whole, and passed. In Senate, a motion to postpone the orders of the day, for the purpose'of taldng up the Bank bill was made, and it requirng two thirds was negatived. The vote stood 19 to 10 in favor of the motion. The vote was in no respect a party vote. I perceive by the papers that much appre hension prevails on the subject of the action of the Legisla'ure upon the bank question. I do not consider that there is any cause whatever for fear. I regard it as settled, that nothing will be done to materially affect the banks. They will have their day for resumption, and the ge neral law will be such as the banks will acqui esce in. The capitol was the scene of a.very disgrace ful act to daylh"oLtttact of a member of the Senate, by a member of the House, and for a cause not originating in any Legislative or per sonal matter. The parties were Mr. McElwee and Mr Barely. They met in the rotunda be tween the two chambers, when McElwee, with out further notice than "you d d rascal," struck Mr. Barclay -with his cane. The blow was re peated several times, with an attempt to draw the iword from the stick, when Mr Barclay went intotthehall of Representatives, andseized ."l cane convenient to the door for self defence. They were, at this stage, interrupted by a rush and separated. Neither party is much hurt, though Mr B. has marks on his forehead; but the legislature is disgraced which permits scenes withinMs very halls, without notice. The only cause'Tor the attact known to Mr. Barclay, was the Jpservice of a notice to plead," in a certain sultan which Mr. B. is the attorney, and Mr. McE. a defendant, which service was made in the morning. I make no further comments. FhilatCa Inquirer. 576,871 9,06 10,00 1,00 T(Ual, 4595,16 Cash paid to Supervisors, viz. To Supervisors of Price township, 67,26 " " of Tobvhanna, paid to Aaron B.
