Dutinp-our residence in the city of New York, 1827 or '28, the city wus one morn ing thrown inlo ngitntion nnd mourning, bv the report thnt young Graham hod fallen in a duel. Charles Gralium was n young man of splendid talents. His short career hail been somewhat remarkable. His widowed' mother was the keeper of a well known hotel the I'eorl Street House now colled the Ohio House. While, yet quite young, Chnrles was guilty of a depredation, we be lieve, on the property of one of his mother' boarders. Being detected, he (led to Eu rope, where at school, his progress wns rapid fine talents were developed and lie Ii.nl the good fortune to gain the fuvorofn nobleman, who nfter his education wns com pleted brought him into notice and he be came the editor, or at lenst the slated writer for one of the popular English periodicals. We write from tncjnory, and have forgotten the name of his patron, nnd the paper with which he wns coiuiected. Graham returned to New York, about the year 182G or 27, nn accomplished schol ar, nnd a perfect gentleman. He soon after became associated with Noah, ns editor of the New York Enquirer; and during his connexion with it, the paper became prover bial for its keen satire, its sparkling wit and especially for its ability in relation to the nfiaits of foreign coiintiies. No small portion of the reputation which Noah ac quired, as n man of great and diversified tal ents, belonged to Graham a fact which Noah frankly acknowledged 011 the death of his associate. The crime for which Graham had fled his country, if not forgotten, was forgiven ; it wus regarded as the indiscretion of a youth that had been led into temptation, rather than the indication of a corrupt liemt, or abandoned character. Nevertheless, the remembrance of it wns said to have embit tered his own existence, and at times sq, preyed upon his spirits, ns to force h'un, for n period, from the society of which he war thellife nnd ornament. At a parly, one evening, Graham quar relled with a companinn, mid the noxtiinorii ing was brought from Hobnken 0 corpse!

I was. unavoidably, ab sent from the House 011 Monday, find 1 been present, I should have voted ay on the first clause of the resolution, fully believing that the whole subject ought to bo referred to n committee. On the second clutise. which nfilrins that "Congress possesses no constitutional power to interfere with slineiv in the Slates," I should hale also voted ay On the third clause, which declares thin 'Congnss ought not to interfeie in any cay with slniery in the District of Columbia." I should huve voted no, for tins, among oth er reasons : that 1 believe Congress ought to interfere with the since trade in the Dis trict. The lost douse which directs tin committee to assign reasons why Congress ought not to interfere with slavery in the States or in the District, would have present id some difficulties especially as nil the oih Or pints of the resolution hail been adopted, when the vole was taken on it. I should, how ever have placed my name among those of the six gentlemen who voted no, on the ground that the appointment of counsel by the House to nrgue one hide of a ques lion submitted to their consideration, with out power to investigate the other, is not well sustained by precedent and bill poorly calculated to give weight and character to the uigumeut they might produce. You will oblige me, gentlemen, by in serting this in your to-morrow's paper. " Very rt-spcrlfuHv, your obedient servant, " I1ILAND HALL. Mil.

I knew that the projectors were ashamed of the experiment I I knew that immense sum of money had been thrown into mud and water upon certain "water-halls." I knew that certain grund improvements upon our guns, reducing their, weight from that well known standard of experience and science, 200 pounds of metal to the pound of ball the chimera of medium guns, had ruined, in a great measure, our naval ordnance. I got tho report of the inspector of nnvnl ordnance into the House the very Inst night of the session through my friend the Hon. Wm. Cost Johnson, who made the report on establishing a national foundty. The re port had been made to the Board of Nuvy Commissioners for more than 'twelve months, nnd had never been communicated to Con gress, because, I presume, it exposed suttiu of the chimeras of the Department, nnd show&T how the sixty-five millions have in part been expended. From the report I I hit vc' now, sir, given ynu the facts upon J knew that about 750 of the guns of the Nu- thv journal; but there are other important tacts Tacts unwritten, ns.well os- fuels writ ten. Out with them I Come! rise in vour high (daces all, here and elsewhercanil tell the truth the whole truth I Sir.it is said the House.' That is not in vy were tinut lor service, and they are now, manj?ofithem, on board your vessels of war. The men are afraid of them. I knew that it would take from six to twelve months to gel our ships und vessels of war iu ordinary afloat. Concerning the War Department I knew that scarcely one of the old fortifica tions which were left dilapidated by the last war was in n stale of repair. Witness tho that bill failed true. It failed before it got to tho House from the conference room ! It dropped like a spent ball before it'got here il dropped near that doorl Sir, there about the matter; they mnv I cannot vouch for them. I menu to put in- J ry, near Baltimore, and the works on the Ciulf terrogatories. 1 put it to the gentleman (Mr i of Mexico I I knew that notw ithstanding C) did no "busy body, whisper nught in , more than twenty-six millions hod been ex are two statements , facts exposed during the debate thnt very last ay bo conjectural ; niglit of the session in relation to Foit M'llen- his ear as ho was on Ins way to report to the House? Did no otic tempt him ns ho passed, to strangle the bantling under his euro? Was there no magician near? No d 1 and his imps And, if this may be do llied, 1 put it to the honorable chairman of the committee of conference, (Mr C.) if no member of thu committee recuived a billet doux after he ivmiiiicd hi sent? Did the honorable chairman, after he left the confer ence room, not: intend to make thu report ? Did he not, after' he returned to.the House with it, inform n gentlemaiifrom Tennessee, (Mr Forrester.) though it was then after 12 o'clock at night, that he intended to make u report ? Did he not sit down by a gentleman front Ohio, (Mr Whittlesey,) and give him to understand, with the report on tho desk beforo him, that tho report was to bo made? 'Why did that intention fail ? What prevent ed ? Sir, there were spirits haunting the Capitol that "awful night''. there were strango whisperings chatieringelfs ghosts, as I am told, I did not seelhem blue doyils und imps I Is it true, was there any dealing with tho "infernals" that night? .Tell us, I pray, tell us, and let thecurse fall on the tieeromoncurs, not on tho victims of the hor rid spell I Mr Cambreleng. I can tell you. Mr Wise. Ay, you can loll us, can you ? tThero is another more important fact, which midst come out. Out with it'nll, say 1. You, Mr Speaker, ay, yon, sir, nr,o.,deep!y con cerned in that" matter, deny it if you can. Before I disclose the fact, "l must premise thnt I voted for'tho three millions amend ment. There were 109 votes for it. the name of John Ojiincy Adams first, and my name last on thn list of yens. I was held to a strict accountability for that vote by my constituents, with whom I settled' it, as e. pended on building, or rather on commenc ing to build, fortifications since 1S20, not one scarcely of our now fortifications was completed. " I say "commencing to build," because tho system has not been one of de fence, it has been ono of electioneering to scatter Government patronage I Instead of completing thoso commenced hefor.e others are begun, as many congressional dUtripts as possible are given a iatte of tho Treasury pop, and the works begun and incomplcto nre left to tho necessary injury of delay, and to the tender motcy of any enemy who may choose' to enptute them. Your own forts aro now exactly in the condition either lo bo blown up, or to be turned upon yourselves. Witness Old Point Comfort and the Rip Raps I I knew, sir, that with the most ex tended coast of any people on the face of thu earth, en the Gulf, on the Atlantic, and on tho Lnkcs, to be defended, wo had not a fort in readiness for nny emergency, near or ufur off. I knew, according to information from tho Ordnance Department, it would take twenty years at the present rato of ap propriation, one hundred thousand dollars only per annum,vor, in other words, a pre sent appropriation of two million of dollars, for armament of fortifications alone I I know we had but three safe foundries in the cntiro eastern section of the country, at which ord. nance ian be cast. I knew that ensting of ordnance was no light job, and two millions worth was not to be cust in a day, 1 knew that from Florida to Maine there was not a single fort which could mount twenty guns. I knew that lln?ro were no gun carriages. Witness Fort Washington, the guu'rd of tho pass to this Capitol, which has oncu been burnt, has jiot it gun on its ramparts, 'And in addition to all this, I knew thnt a Preiir.h .Minister (GenorsJ Bernard) know our ccr
