TUESDAY* MARCH 1, 1836. To every subscriber who will procure us thre< responsible now subscribers, we will forward t | receipt for a year's subscription. We are indebted to Col. Manning for a copy of Mr. Pinckney's remarks on his resolution re. lating to the abolition petitions. Tlio remarks vll be found in our columns together with Mr. Hammond's reply. Wo are sorry to see tho violence with which Mr. Pinckney has been assailed on tais subject by some of tho newspapers. His resolutions were not in all respects what we could wish them to have been. But they go as f^r probably as tho Houso would go. We are very sure?and it seems to us tliat every man w!k> will five himself time to reflect .... ?i.? t,niuWt x Vil HIV J must also he sure?that his motives were pure and patriotic. Tho intimation that he was tempted by bribes is most ridiculous, to use no stronger term. Wc aro not ourselves among those who havo very strong confidence in the prospective advantages of any expression of opinion by Congress on this subject. Each Congress will act according to its own opinions, without much regard to those of its predecessors. I The French Question definitively Seeded. On Monday, 22d February, the President sent to Congress a message with the correspondence of tho Secretary of State and Mr. Baukhcad, ( Charge cf Affairs of the British Government, on t'?o subject of the mediation; and also a letter ! from Mr. Bankhead communicating the very ; gratifying intelligence that the French Govern- ! ment had signified to that of Great Britain its ! readiness to pay the instalment which is due un- 1 dor the treaty of indemnity, whenever it shall be claimed by the Government of tlie United States. The Hovsk was not in session on that day. In Senato ?000 extra copies of the messago were I ordernd to be. nriuted. We have not room for further notice of the Message. ? The hill to rccharter the Bank of the United States has passed both branches of the legislature of Pennsylvania. Tho charter has sinco been accepted by the unanimous vote of a general meeting of tho stockholders. At the same meet, lag resolutions were unanimously adopted appro, ring the manner in which the business of the Bank has been managed by the Directors; and i offering Nicholas Diddle, Esq. a splendid servico of plate for his able and faithful administration of | tho affairs of the Bank, as its President. I 1 i i Tho Charleston volunteers have returned home. A compary of volunteers have gone from Lan. ! raster to tho aid of Florida, under tho requisition : of tho Governor for Jtfilitia. i Gen. Dudley has accepted tho nomination of i the Anti Van Burcn party of N. Carolina for the ( office of Governor of that State. Mr. McRae's boot, burnt on the Capo Fear, 1 turns ont to bo a pole boat. I I The following is part of an article in the ' Globe" on the subjoct of the renewal of the charter of the United States Bank, by tho Legis- ! lature of Pennsylvania. "We still have confidence in the virtuo of the ( Sonato to reject this monster scheme to prostrate j Pennsylvania at the footstool of tho moneyed : power; but should the G OLD of the Bank Bt'Y j votes enough to give it a charter, then we say to our brethren of Philadelphia, RAZE THE ODI- 1 OUS INSTITUTION TO THE GROUND, j AND THE DEMOCRACY OF PEXNSYL i VANIA WILL HELP YOU STREW SALT j OYER ITS FOUNDATION!" Suoli advice would disgrace any paper. But it is a reproach to Republican Institutions that it should be given by tho official and confidential 1 organ of the United States Government.

Very important to Southern Towns.?Mr. I Belchler, a very ingenious and useful Me- < chanic of Rutherlbrdton, N.

That it can be worked by one person, t nnd is so durable that it will need but little t repairing in a long time. He says that for r cashing windows, pavements, and for irri- t gating gardens' during" a drought, it would >e worth the money. He says it will throw t vater over any house with great force, and f hat the readiness with which it can be r wrought into plav, w hile the fire is yet small, d nakes it peculiarly a desideratum in the I Southern Towns.

Mr. Dave- a a. died near the Quarantine Ground, and, a such slender defence is ottered as a bar- b er to the Claim, there is very little security b i these insurances.
