Itcmiiiiption of Ntet le l'n;iiirnl The Hank of lVnnsylvaiiiu have nl length returned specie payment, in conformity with the law of that Htatc passed at the la.l . ssion of the Legislature. A correspondent of the New Vork Herald, dated on the loth till, at Philadelphia, tayt: "This kvm icaumption day, and has been pawed through to the present time, by all our bink, with good order, good humor, and what is more important, jrood faith. There was no bustle or throng about any of them but the (iirard ami United States, ami very little uboul tins former of these. Tho latter was pretty wa ll run. There were four men behind the counter, two of them with their coals oil and sleeves rolled up, w ho were actively engaged from the opening to the close, in answering the demand for .-pceie. At the opening of the doors, about "00 persons of all grades and occupations, piincipally those holding small amounts of bills, cult red, and forming into line, they extended iiao the street, which was kept up for several hours by some new comers. ' Tho broken fSchuv Ikill Dank to-day paid all her balances in full in United States Dank Hills so that the resumption is complete in Philadelphia." It is to be regretted thai the banks of Ilaltiinore have refuse ) to co-operate with those of Philadel phia, on without their aid the resumption in the tiouth-west will not take place. The lLiliimore Patriot of the llllii ult. says : " Wo learn that at B meeting of tho President. nf tho several Hanks in the city of liallimore, on Monday evening, the question of the resumption of specie payment came up when a resolution was adopted by a decided vote, that it Was inexpedient for the Hanks of this city to resume, unless theru was a simiil tancous act of resumption on the part o! the Hanks of Virginia." This course by tho Hallimore Hanks renders it certain that there will bo no resumption south of Pennsylvania, uiid should the report ho true that the hanks of Baltimore are secretly draw iug; on the hanks of Philadelphia for specie, it mm letul to a third lunjlciuiun there !

It seem impossible o proptf e any important meinure for tiieir eoii-ider.ilioti, (and sic li mea sures must be bioii'dit forward by the democratic or doiiiiuaiit parly,) that the win; will not op pose with at least a majority of tin ir force, and sometimes with perfect unanimity. If they can no', succeed in creating dissensions with the ma jority, tiny will u.e every means which p.ulia inentary usage and rules allow ihetu, to retard the measures they would adopt, without referrner to the great interests of the state that may be iliol- cd or ihe increased expense of legislation. This they do withthe hopn of deceiving the peop with lite cry : "you have bad a democratic legislature, and see, notwithstanding the majority of the dominant parly Was millicieiit to serve your interests,' how little they have done, and how long it has occupied them !" They presume thai the people are not informed of their proceed ings here from day to day, mill cannot generally read the ollicial record of their voles and conduct, but so far a I am concerned I am determined, il they continue their course, to give you such iiii abstract as will lit least show to the people ol'thr La Salle district, that the whig parly, with but few exceptions, have endeavored to retard and prevent legislation, l.y studied and determined course of conduct from the. begiiu.ing of Ihe ses sion. The Hill granting a lot t. the .Mechanics' Lite rary Association of Ottawa passed its second ren ding yesterday in the House and was referred to liie fiunmitli o on Canal and Canal Lands. The cnun'ir of Sangamon and Morgan have proposrd to the slate In complete the construction of the r.iil road frnui this place to Meredocia, and have applied In the Legislature for authority to do so, under propositions l ivorable to the interests of the state. The bills lor the division of our I'mecouVw will pass, and Kendall iimKiriiudy bei stablished h)all probability. However much 1 may regret that the county has been divided at tiiis time, and uudtu' its embarrassed rirc iiuistanrt', no blame can attach to our representative and sennl.tr, who have hern most fully instructed in relation to it. The attention of Ihe legislature ha been occu pied the last two weeks, and to ihe entire c ".elu sion of other important business, in the considera tion of the bill for the reorganization of tin Judi ciary, Tho whig party, who have heretofore act ed with a large portion ol'lliu democratic party iu the adoption of similar measures und those invol ving like piinciples, have gone against hen mu.i; and forced the democrats to innku u parly measure of one so lict'Ci.;uiy for the highest inteieslsof the slate. The hill passed il l third reading on Saturday by a voto of 40 to 13 two democrats absent and three voting uguiust it. One of those who voted for it, rcluincd to himself the privilege and w ished to ho understood, that ho would vote against the li nal patnuge. of the hill. Th un, should he net re ceive instructions to go for it, (in which caw he would not vole nt all, proba'ulv ,) and should the whig'!, by their chicanery, le able to get another vote f.uin ur ranks, it may l e defeated by one vote.

Mr. Klan I.o wry, who keeps the locks at Coleman's Dam, about .'I miles above l !af ton, was standing on the abutment of the D.un, together with his son ; when it cave way and both were piecipituled into the river. Mr. f.owry got hold of a log and floated down to Huston, where he was taken oil' by Mr. John Heain, in a battcax, who nobly risked his life to save him. from above H:.(on on the Delaware, not much lias been heard, but there is reason to believe that ihere is the same destruction there as up the I.ehigh. IJe !ov Trenton, from the width of the river, not so much damage was done as above, hut the cuncnt was very strong, carrying w ith it the efleels of the river above. At Philadelphia, a ipiatuily of wood w;fs swept from the wharves, and s.une mer chandise damaged. An elderly man by the name of ShuMer, ami his son, met w ith a serious accident while gathering wood iu the river. The son by some means was thrown from the batteau, and carried down the stream. The: father did not immediately miss him, but in a few moments saw him struggling in the waves. It was out of his power to render him any assistance, and to witness the death of his sun could not but have been paralising to him. His son is believed to have been drown ed, as nothing has yet been heard of him. The particulars at Huston also show great destruction. The Haston Sentinel stales the number of buildings destroyed, to be from 15 to UO, but thinks this a moderate calculation. The river rose at some places at 35 feet above low water mark. A great number of boats belonging to the Maiieh' Chunk Company, the Lehigh Transportation Company, and to private individuals, were carried away, and the great probability is they never will be recovered. A letter from New Hope, to the Editor ol the Pennsylvanian, details a descnp lion from below Easton, to that place. New lloi'K, Jan. l)th, 1811. The flood on the Delaware has been the highest ever know n. Iveigle's bridge, twelve miles below Easton, came down and carried away three arches of Centre bridge, oa the Jersey side. Taylor's bridge went oil' entirely, before they came down, ami likewise half of that at Vard leyville. The Canal at Envinna broke over its banks and carried away a state bridge near it.

The aniflilutii mil ' right' uf 'their rn.iiLC. however, was not derided, and the "aji. itioux'' given by three of judges, were, merely on an immaterial point to effect the object abuvo stated.

The S't.le Register, of the 'J'Jili ell. contains an uhie article on this subject, nud we regret that want of room in to-day's paper prevents us from giving it at length. We, how-eve-, give the following extract: 'On Tuesday morning last it was rum ored iu town that the Judges of the sup reme court were ready to decide the ease from (Jalena involving the right of Aliens lo vote iu the state of Illinois. The court room was unusually crowded, and the judges proceeded to deliver their opinions. Judge Smith delivered a very able, and in the opinion of almost every person, an unanswerable opinion in favor of the right of Aliens to vote. Justice Smitlrwas understood to say that nr. was delivering the opinion of the ( ot ter. All were sur prised at this, as it had been clearly un derstood since last June term, that Justice Smith stood u'one in this case in favor of the aliens, and that all the other members of tlie court were against him. Hut what was the surprise of all, when after Justice Smith had read his opinion Justice Lock- wood announced that he cnnriirroil in the tltcLiion as made by Justice Smith, and then proceeded lo deliver his opinion. Chief Justice Wilson then delivered a short opinion and concurred with Justice Smith for tin reasons assigned by Justice Lock wood, whereupon Justice I'row n aid -sf tluil .speech ilium for mc, or iu other words that he concurred with Smith for Loekwood's reasons.. - Thus the court decided ihe case iu favor of Spraggins the judge of the election; but neither ol the jndoes, except Smith, have decided that tin? aliens have a constitutional right to vote in the slate of Illinois. The opinion of Lockwood, Wilson and Brown, in this case is a studied time serving evasion of the question before the Court, evidently made with a view to operate upon questions now pending be fore the general assembly and with a view of allaying the excitement produced by the certain prospect of the decision of the court against the right of aliens to vote, as is provided by the law and constitution of the state ; yet reserving the main ques tion to he hereafter decided by them against the right of alien suffrage when a more propitious and less dangerous time shall arrive and when a democratic Le gislature shall not be in session, having the power and the will to send those gentlemen upon the circuits to earn their salaries and exhibit their incompetency to the people. What have these three Judges decided . It is, that the judges of election arc not to take notice of the constitution or to decide when a voter presents himself, whether he is a constitutional voter or not. The Judge is only to tender him the oath, and when he swallows that and it is not dis proved, his voto must be received by the judge although he may know that the voter has no constitutional right to cast his vote.
