plies, say one on the St. Johns, 7 miles j
below Lake George; one up the Peas i
Creek, say 15 miles above Charlotte liar-,
bor; one at Tampa Bay; one 12 miles J
from the Gulph of Mexico, up the V ithla- i
coochee, and one on the same river, near
the Fort King road; 160,000 rations deposited
at Tampa Bay, and thirty or forty thousand
at each of the other posts. Five :
columns with haversacks, and a few one i
horse carts, may operate securely and with !
every prospect of success, at least to the !
north and west of Charlotte Harbor. For
the country below, additional means will
be wanted, viz : two or three steamers of i
a tight draft of water, and fifty or sixty
barges of different sizes, capable of carry-1
ing from ten to fifty men each.
?41 give these items, in order, if approved,
that the necessary appropriations may
be asked at once. I beg leave to add, in
. 1 . 7 ; J i
haste, inai new regiments, or r^imciuc
of recruits, would be worth little or nothing
in this war. I will, therefore, earnestly
recommend that the companies of the old
regiments be extended to eighty or ninety
privates each. Hecrnits mixed up with
old soldiers in June or July, would become j
effective by the first of December ; and I
repeat, operations cannot be carried on by
any troops whatever, in this Peninsula,
except between the 20th of Nov. and the j
end of April. The intermediate period is ;
two hot or two sickly to be endured.

Mp? Njiuduiii moved that the Conimiiiee |
of Claims lie discharged from the further j
consideration of the petition of '
Wetmorc. To account for the motion, lie
read a sentence from the memorial, in w hich !
the petitioner, in relerencc to a former appli.
cation, expressed the presumption that his
honor would not agaiu be assailed, declaring
his determination to punish an insult were it
even hi the Court of f leaven !!
Mr. Webster asked how it happened that
such a petitioo had been- presented ?
Mr. Linn said lie could answer that ques.
tion. He had hastily glanced over its eontents,
and the offensive words had escaped j
his notice. But had he seen them, he would !
not say that lie should not have presented ,
the Detition. He had no objection to having j
a dozen such referred to him. He could ;
let them pass for just so much as they were
Wftlh, and not bring them into importance j
by any specific reference to them.
Mr. Webster reminded the Senator that
there was a rule of the Senate which requir- j
cd that every Senator should be responsible i
for tiie respectful terms in which the peti- j
ti-jser addressed Congress.
Mr. Linn's reply was not heard. lie was
understood to say that had he seen the language,
the recollection of the rule would
have induced him to refrain from presenting
it.
The committee was then discharged from
the furtherconsideration of the petition.
Mr. Ewino, of Ohio, offered the fol- ;
lowing resolution. >

Treasury be directed to iuform the Senate :

the 30th of June last, from the Commercial *
Bank ofCincinnati, and also from the Clin- j
ton Bank of Columbus, to banks east of the j
Alleghany mountains, giving the date and J
amount of all such transfers, and the banks !
from and to which they were made. And, f
also, that he inform the Senate what trans- j
fers are ordered from each of the above, j
named banks, and when and to what banks j
they are to be made. That lie also inform

The House resolved itself into Com-1
mittee of the Whole on the State of the
Union, Mr. Parker in the Chair, on the
Bill to provide for the better defence of the
Western Frontier.
[The Bill appropriates 8100,000 for the
construction of a military* road west of j
the boundary of Missouri and Arkansas.]
On motion of Mr. M'Kay, an amendment
providing that tlm consent of the
tribes should be obtained, and if not ob-!
taijietl that road should bo constructed
cast of the boundary line of Missouri and
Arkansas, was adopted : The Bill was laid
aside.
The Committee took up the Bill to provide
for the erection of an arsenal of con-1
struction in North Carolina. " No amend-j
ment having been offered, the Bill was laid ;
aside.
On the 11th, 12th and 13th of May nothing j
was done worth reporting. Much of the .
time was spent upon the fortification bill.

report tton abolition.
Mr. Pinckncy, from the select committee |
on tlie subject of the abolition of slavery in j
the District of Columbia, by general con- !
sent, made a report, which he said bad i
received the unanimous assent of the committee,
and which he hoped would bG un- {
animousdy approved by the House.
Mr. P. asked that the report be read:
.?< ? .... .1 ^
which was oojecieu xo.
Mr. Claiborne insisted upon t!?c reading j
of the report; and it was read through to t
the conclusion, which is as follows :
44 Your committee conclude by reporting j
the following resolutions, conformably to j
the instructions given them by the House:)
44 Resolved, That Congress possesses no .
constitutional authority to interfere, in any j
wav, with the institution of slavery in anv i
? % * I
of the States of this Confederacy.
''Resolved, That Congress ought not to j
interfere, in any way, with slavery in the :
District of Columbia."
" And whereas it is extremely important
and desirable that the agitation of this sub.
ject should be linally arrested, for the pur. !
pose of restoring tranquility to the public j
mind, your committee respectfully recommend
die adoption of the following ad
ditional resolution, viz.
u llcsoh'edy That all petitions, melnorials, j
resolutions, propositions, or papers, relating, j
in any way, or to any extent whatever, to ;
the subject of slavery, or the abolition of j
slavery, shall, without being either printed j
or referred, be laid upon the table, and that !
no further action whatever shall be had !
thereon."
Mr. Pincfcncy said he was instructed to j
move that 5,(J0(J extra copies be printed.
Mr. Hardin said hcjfolt bound to explain. :
He had not acted with the committee in
framing the report, but he had told the :
chairman he might report what he pleased, |
and he [Mr. 11.] woukl reserve his right to !
dissent from it. The report stated that the
committee were unanimous; and he would j
protest against that fact. The report said ;
the abolitionists at the North were few and
insignificant. He did not think so. He
thought they were numerous and increasing,
and as soon as they could get a majority
of both Houses in Congress, then the rights j
of the South would be lost.
- * i . .1 i I
i\lr. 1'inckney saia tnc gentleman nau
been regularly summoned to attend every J
meeting of the committee, and might have I
assisted in making the report. In relation j
to the number of the abolitionists at the \
North, lie had taken pains, because there
were various statements, to count the names t
on the abolition memorials. His conclusion j
was tiiat they were few. The whole j
number of names was JJ0.000, of whom :
fully one-half were females, and many of!
the rest, lie had good reason to believe, j
were children. i
Mr. Wise said the report had conic at i
last, though he had never expected to see !
it. He was opposed to the principles of j
the report, and also to the printing of it. j
If Southern men were to agree to that re-*
port, they were gone, swept away. There
was not an inch of ground left for them to
stand upon. It only contended for what
abolitionists never denied, and conceded ali I
that they claimed. It conceded the con- {
stitutionality of Congress interring in tiic ;
question of slavery in the District of Colum
bia, and that was the only question at issue.'
He had another ground of opposition. 1
There had been a pledge given to him that I
the ground should decidedly, unequivocally j
be taken that Cougrcss has not the power !
to abolish slavery in the District of Coluni-'
bia. Such a pledge was made, and was !
made to him; but he could see no such ,
ground taken in the report. The wholo ,
amount of what was said was, that it is not j
expedient now to interfere in tiie subject, j
Hee.\j>ected that the committee would have
declared that Congress had no power, j
There was another point far more important
than any other which he should
have liked to have seen treated in /he report.
It was, whether Congress lias power to i
limit or prohibit the slave trade between the
States of the Union. lie would rather |
vote to print, recognise and give effect to .
all theabolition memorials, tiian to print and :
recognise the principles of that report, and :
give it credit as the expression of Southcit
feeling or opinion.
Mr. Thompson, of South Carolina,- said
he should, at the proper time, endeavor tc
answer the arguments of the report. lie
would only say then that it did not contain
South Carolinian arguments or opinions.
A more stale combination of argument
without reason, and Jesuitical sophistry, he
had never seen; and he thought it ought to
be burnt by the common hangman. They
do not come up to the question, and say it
is unconstitutional for Congress to abolish
slavery in the District; but they intimate
that it is, and finally modify that intimation
by saying that it would he a violation ol
the public faith. lie understood the report
to deny the necessity of receiving abolition
memorials; and if the chairman had
taken that ground at the commencement ol
the controversy, much trouble would have
been spared. There were some subjects
on which he was afraid to trust his feelings;
but this was not one: and when such a
report was made, he could not slumber a
moment, but took the first opportunity to
get the floor to denounce it. lie could' not
say from what cause it arose, but scrtainly
the report did not speak the sentiments oi
Southern men.
Mr. Glascock, of Georgia, hoped the
usual course would be taken, and that the
report might be printed. The report was
very long, and it was almost impossible
for any one to understand it from hearing
it read. He hoped this premature discussion
would be stopped, and that the
question might be taken at once. lie moved
ty print 20,000 copies, but was willing tc
take either ten or thirty thousand. lie

of the People.
A desultory debate was continued 011 the
subject without taking any question till the
hour arrived for the special order, the fortification
bill which was taken up. Aftei
spending some time upon it the bil
for the defence of the western frontier was
taken up, and after various amendments 0
the Senate had been concurred in Mr. Cambreling
reported a bill appropriating $500,
000 for the suppression of hostilities amon?
the Creek Indians. The House resolvcc
itself into committee of the whole to consi
der the bill. The committee rose and re
ported the bill after which by means of the
previous question, it passed all its readings.

Washington, May 11.
A great master of the human heart lays i
down somewhere, that there are two dc
grccs in which the ' tie may be given?th<
one being the lie circumstantial, and tin
other the lie direct. The Globe presents
Mr. Adams with the latter compliment this
morning, in regard to the cession of tin
province of Texas. If, as rumor has oftei
declared, this gentleman bad ever throwi
himself into the parental embraces of tin
"democratic" party, he must by this time b<
heartily sick of his new allies.
lie bids fair, however, to call forth stil
severer denunciations from the party and tin
parly's organ. Mr. Towncs, in the cours<
of his observations this morning, uttemptet
to trace the commencement of politico
proscription to the period of Mr. Adams
glory, and alluded particularly to transfer
of public printing made from heterodox t<
orthorodox printers, during the years ii
wlwnh tlint wntlf^man was Secretary o
n- *
State and President of the United States.
2Vfr. Adams denied the charge most flatly
and stated a fact of which, he said will
much emphasis, he did not know whethc;
General Jackson would have any recollection
but for the truth of which he was himsel
well able to vouch. The only single in
stance in which he had ever removed a prin.
tcr was in a case in Tennesee, at the paftic
u/arpersonal request of General Jacksoi
and his then colleaime in the senate. Mr
O
Adams had supposed that printer to be de
cidedly favorable to General Jackson?wh<
said, that lie once had been so, but was 7i<
longer so. The General requested h<
might be removed, and he was removed. Mr
Adams then remarked, that neither as Se
cretary of State nor in the more elevated sta
tion which he subsequently held, had 1m
ever removed a man from office on accoun
of political opinion. He knew that some
of his friends blamed him much for his cours<
in that particular, and he believed it wouk

TUESDAY, WAY 24, 183G.
We have received "Chesterfield" in rcph
to an assault made upon us in the Fayette,
ville Observer, by three steam doctors, al
abreast. We thank " Chesterfield" for liii
communication ; but the point of a consider
able part of it would not be seen by those o
niir readers who have not rend the publica
tion of the steamers. We therefore thinl
that for the present at least it is best not t<
publish it. We shall however reserve it
Things may still take such a course as shal
induce us to give it an insertion.
Our assailants arc quite warm (and retail
their warmth sometime too) because we di
rcetcd public attention last March to the fac
that the spread of the small pox in Marlboro
and the deaths which followed were ascriba
hie only to their ignorance. The commu
nity will profit by their agitation of the sub.
ject in the public prints. For it can tent
only to make the truth known morccxten
sivelv, and thus open the eyes of men whe
now think them qualified to practice mcdl
chic.
As tiic Steamers have breught up agaii
the subject of the spread of the Small Pox ir
Mariboroiig'i. it may be well enough to repea
i the facts a little more particularly than we b
'lid before. The small pox is a disease *j
I . tl
which is not infectious until after the eruption ^
, iias appeared, and nas advanced somewhat S1
towards maturity, except perhaps in cases tc
where from improper treatment its regular t a'
appearance or progress has been interrupted, j jj
And although there are no symptoms by J p
which small pox can be certainly distinguish- j w
ed before the eruption, yet a person who has
any correct knowledge of the appearance j
assumed bv the disease after the eruption,! ^
' as well as a knowledge of the appearance of oi
i those diseases which most resemble it, will al
| at once, and without the least difficulty distin. *r
,| guish it when the eruption appears, and be- i Cl
