nito all patriots in resisting tlio de
signs of the Experimenters and Spoi
lsmen. Tho rcfcrcnco of tho differ
ent parts of tho message affords a
proper occasion for accomplishing
these purposes; and I rejoice to in
form your readers that it was seized
upon with eager energy, and so im
proved, that if tho discussion is conti
nued with the same spirit . and effect
with which it has been begun, it will
. have no small influence in deciding
the fato of this administration. This
discussion, so far as the Opposition
take part in it, will cmbodio they de-
sires and tho determinations of the
people, in regard to both the meas
ures and the agents of their gov-
. ernment. They will tell why the
country will no longer endure the mis
rule of "the party and in bold, man
ly language of freemen, speaking
with the voice, and armed with the
authority of a freo people, they will
remind the Executive that he holds
the place, to which he has been ele
vated, for the common good; that it
befits not the President of tho United
States, to lend his authority to the sel-
fish purposes of a faction; that he
. docs hear the reply to his appeal to
public sentiment, in the. decisions at
the recent elections: and that if he
should at this time have an opportuni
ty of renewing his appeal in federal
. elections notwithstanding the accursed
enginery of electioneering demorali
zation which lie and his myrmidons
may bring to bear upon the weakness
of some classes and tho dependence
and fear of others ho would find the
spirit of American people aroused to
such a manifestation of determined
principle . and resistless power as
would sweep the corrupt faction and
oligarchy of officeholders from the
places they have disgraced and where
they brought only mischief and dis
credit, on tho country. Tho battle
was begun on tho motion to refer that
portion of tho President's Message
relating to tho. finances, and. tho safe
keeping of the public money to the
Committee of. Ways and Means.
When this point Was reached in tho
series of resolutions offered by. the
new and aspiring Captain of the train
hands, Haynes of Georgia; 3Ir.
Wise and Mr. Cambrclcn rose at
the samotimo. The latter firsi caught
the eye of iHr. Adams who was in the,
chair, v Ho suggested to M. Haynes,
a'iiiodification, so as to refer ail' the
Messago relating to tho re-issuing of j
the. old notes cf tho Bank, of the Uni
ted States, to the Committco on the
Judiciary ; which was concurred in

Mr. Wise demanded of tho party,
to say, whether the Peopjo had not
sustained the course of tho. House?
llavo you not been instructed? said
he. If not, what means that shout of
triumph? that roar of arlilierv? the
jubilant strain that have fallen upon
our ears? oir, saia ne, they are the
.1 w
rejoicings oi tne reopie, who, a short
time ago, were in sackcloth and ash
es, but who now see the day of their
deliverance at hand.
"Will not the President yield?' he
proceeded to ask. . "Will .he not o
bey the supreme will? He professes
to comply with public sentiment,
nut does fie relent? INo! he hurls
back in our faces his impudent peti
tion for power and patronage which
the People hava rejected and scorn
ed and trampled in the dust?"
I have not timo nor room to dwell
upon the cautic and successful manner
in which the distinguished Virginian
exposed the trickery of tho Message
its miserable attempt to draw pubHc
attention from the great question of
finance and raise false issues; the of
fering of that poor boon , the special
when every man must see that
it is liable' to all the objections 'which
have been established against the
Sub-Treasury System and the effort
to give the impression that all other
system of finance had been condemned
at tho last session while tho Sub
Treasury scheme was only post
poned. .
Mr Wise averred with entire truth
and challenged denial that had a di
rect cote been taken uoon tho Sub-
Treasury Bill that pernicious 1 mea
sure would have been rejected by
a majority of nine at least. - .This
shows how futile- how ridiculous is
the prctenco of the Message that
the moasure was only put on.
This intrepid and eloquent repre
sentative , thon commented upon the
reasons of the President for persisting
in tho second recommendation of the
Sub-Treasury System. All the Exe
cutivo's arguments resolve themselves
into the two positions that tho system
is now inheautiful operation! (in de-
spito of Congress remember) and tiiat

And truly Mr Editor thin cry of the
President of tho npoils of men about
bribery and corruption only hIiowh how

An acquaintance who had nnonofno
great repute for honesty meeting tho
wit one day asked him, "havo you
heard of my son's robbery ?" "No,"
replied Shoridan, "I have not heard of
yourson's robbery, and do praif tell
mc who it is that he lias robbed!"
Tho clamor of tho administration
party invites a question quite as ug-
Mr Wiso concluded by declaring
hisopposition to tho proposed reference
to tho Committco of Waysand Means
because tho majority of thai Com
mittco wcro committed to follow tho
lead of tho President. Six out of the
nine members he said were Loco Focos

and fair Committee! not a set of men
with whom the principle considera

cord with the will of the President.
Tho debate was continued with
point by Mr. Reed, of Mass. who
made an admirable speech. Mr.
Hayns. of Ga made a poor figure in
reply to Mr. Wise; Boon, of India
na, attempted to rescue tho new lea
der but his colleague, Mr. Owini?,
gave him a severe rap over the knuc
kles for his pains.
Duncan of Cincinnati, the forlorn
hope of the party, rose to speak; but
Cambreleng thinking his forces alrea
dy sufficiently beaten, black and blue
induced him to possponc his speech to
another day, and moved that tho
Committee rise, which motion was a
greed to.i
Before tho Blouse adjourned Mr
Adams moved that the uso of the Hall
be given to the Hev Mr Wolfo to
morrow who will deliver an address
at eleven o'clock; The remarks of
Mr Adams on making this request
were eminently b eautiful and eloquent
and highly complimentary to the Rev
erend Missionary. The request was
granted D.

Loco Focos appear to hang well to

a "specie curre ncy" of copper, of
which the following is a description:
On one side is a negro woman, knee

to, 'Am 1 not a woman and a sister?'
On the other, a wreath, with "Liber

merica." These, pieces are calcula
ted to produce much mischief, and
we advise all to be on their guard,
as the probability is they are intend
ed to circulate in tho slave States.
