Mr. Clay repeated the application on the day that the nomination was taken up by the Senate, with great earnestness, and o!>- tained my promise that I would comply with his request. From the position which I occupied in Senate Chamber, be ing somewhat in the rear of that of Mr. liranch, I did not distinctly hear the greater part of his speccb in opposiiion to ihe appointment. Fearing that I might have misunderstood him, and not wishing to rely entirely on my ownjudf^- ment, in a matter i'> which another was so materially concerned, I applied to Mr. Lloyil, of Mass. who sat near to and directly in front of Mr. Ijranch, to know whetlier, in his opinion, any thing had been suid by Mr. li. which would render it proper to move for an inquiry. Mr. Lloyd answered, that nothing bad fallen from Mr. B. which would make a motion oftluitjkind necessary; and the same opin ion was expressed to me by at least one other Senator. I therefore gave up the dea of moving for an in\estigation.— The speech of Mr. Branch, which was published by himself some time ago, is, I have no doubt, as correct a statement as he coxild make of what he delivered to the Senate. But I must confess that, even at this time, I can see nothing in it which would have induced me to have adopted a dilferent course. It appears 10 me, that I should neither have consult ed the public interest, nor the honor of Mr. Clay, in calling for an inquiry, when the accuser—if accuser he can be called declared that he had no proof to offer, but whai each member of the Senate, and every one else, possessed. “ On the day that the nomination was acted on by the Senate, or on the suc ceeding one, I informed Mr. Clay that nothing had passed in the Senate which made it necessary lo move for the in vestigation which he had solicited. The assertion of the fact by Mr. Branch, is suflicient evidence to me, several of the Senators who voted with him against Mr. Clay’s appointment, were governed by the sastie motives and feelings towards that gentleman which actuated him. Such was not the case, however, in re lation to his colleague. For soon after the vote had been taken, Mr. Macon ap proached me, anti observed, that he had not been inOuenced in ojiposing Mr. C.May’s appointment, by any diminution of his ronjidrnct in his intfprity, but solely on tbejjround of the latitude of construc tion which he had given to the Constitu tion. Believing that it was the intention of Mr. Maron, that I should communi cate tfiis oI)servation ‘to Mr. Clay, and kr»o\v!ng the pleasure that it would give to the luiter to find that he still possessed the esteem of iiis old friend and associate, I did not fail to mention this also to Mr. Clay. “ W. II. HARRISON.” mills} something over a hundred are here employed, about one fifth females, and one fifth boys. The machine sho^ is of the same dimensions as the mills* and gives employment to about 180 mechanics.” “ The company to whom the machine shop belongs, have a large tract of land, and an immense water power, and are prepared to furnish machinery of all descriptions at short notice, and erect th© necessary buildings. They have lateiy contracted lo erect two mills, 155 by 44, near the same, and furnish the machinery capable of making three millions of yard% of cloth, yard wide, of No. 14 yarn, pei* annum, to build 30 three story brick tenements, agent’s house, and out build ings, lo furnish 8 acres of land, and am ple water power, and to put the same iti operation, for about 300,000 dollars. Besides those steadily employed in the mills, about 150 mechanics, such a?t masons, carpenters, &c. find constant work. The amount of capital actually invested is g2.400,000, viz. Merrimack Manfacturlug Company, $1,200,000 Proprietors of I.and and Canals, 600,OOW Hamilton Manufacturing Company, 6l0,00t> With respect to the appreciation o£ land, I will iDcniion a fact: I purcha.^ed, in 1822, nine-tenths undivided, of a farm of 110 acres, for Rl, 100. The owner of the other onetenili had agreed to convey it for g200 ; but dying suddenly insolvent, it was sold by order of the court, and I gave for seven and a half tenths of hi» one tenth, upwards of gJ,000. All his debts b'^ing satisfied, the remainder was sold a year afterwards for the benefit of minor children, for nearly g5,000. Lund favorably situated, is worth 15 cents ^ foot, and vhere are a few spots that would command 50. In 1822, tlie whole popu*- ation of that part of Chelmsford whicli now constitutes Lowell, did not, exclusiv« of Mr. Hurd’s mill,exceed 100 jit isno>ir probably 5,000. The solitary store- keeper of 1822, is now surrounded by nu merous rivals, and there are few luxuries, and no necessaries, that sharp competi tion among the dealers does not enable the consumer lo purchase as cheap ia Lowell as he can in Boston.’* AMERICAN MANl'FACTURES. 1 he villutre of l.owell, (Mass.) is remarkable for the number of Manufacturing establish ments erected within a few years, and the quantity of goods manufacti/red. The fol lowing extracts from a statement lately m;ide to Mr. Cary by one of the proprietois, cannot be uninteresting: “There are now in full operation at Lowell, six cotton mills, four stories high, 155 feet by 44, containing 25,000 spindles, and about 150 looms, in w!uch were made, the last year, 5,032,408 yards of cloth, wtighingU045,r:8G pounds, from 1,176,?/82 lbs. of raw cotton.

Moral effects are gent rally com prehensive, powerful and efficient, al though ihey are quiet in their course and gradual in their step towards perfection. They are not noticed by the physical organs of vision, and are not accompanied in their course by the glitter of pageantry or the flattering ffaze and shoutings ol* wonder-struck multitudes, but pass alor/g the “even tenor of their way” with con stant, persevering, stately stepping, im provement on every side, as lasting me mentos of their estimable character. Times have been when deeds of lesser worth and greater have outshone lor a short time the lasting lustre of intel lectual achievements, which have beet* brightened by the hand of time and hal lowed by after ages. As wc turn over the pages of the histories of past times, we estimate the charactets of statesmen higher than those of warriors.—It is not he who was engaged in bloody contests, or who spread terror and dismay, by his ferocious or fearless disposition, througli surrounding nations, that calls forth our highest approbation ; but he whose truth and talents cheiished peace and amity with neighboring states; who cultivated internal quietness, domestic industry, arts, sciences, education, morality and religion ; w'hose policy was peaceful, yet intellectually energetic; he it is whonit we love, reverence, and cite as a bright exemplar for the present day. In the days of our Revolution a vas*: majority of our citizens thought thatal! our success flowed from the brandishing* of the sword and the lightnings of the cannon. Time has convinced them of such error.
