until half past four o'clock on Sun
day morning, 27th ult. discussing
the contested election from this
The North Carolina election
controversy was understood to
have been set apart for final deci
sion on Saturday. The whole of
that day was consumed in discus
sion, and various motions having
been made to nut off the case, in
legal pnrlance, at nine o'clock at
nicht, iMr. Uravcs ol Kentucky.
commenced speakinc: in favor of
the sitting member and against
time; in other words, as there
were many members who held
conscientious scruples as to sitting
on the Sabbath, by speaking until
that approached, much might be
gained to delay decision. Mr.
Calhoun of Ky. followed suit until
12 o'clock, and a question was
then raised, "whether the House
could compel its members to vote
on the aabbalh day?" It is im
possible to describe the confusion
and uproar which prevailed after
wards; motion alter motion being
made, ineffectually, to adjourn.
Mr. Adams, on a quorum not
having appeared, and. a call of the
House being ordered, refused to
answer to his name. Mr. Hawes
moved that he should be excused.
Mr. Adams said, "he did not
want to be excused;" but wished
a decision upon the question whe
ther or no a mejnber could be
compelled to vote on Sunday?
The Speaker said, it was not unu
sual to continue the sittings on
that day. Mr. Adams insisted
that whenever the House had sat
on Sunday, it was under pressing
cases of emergency, ad after a
vote to that effect by both Hou
ses. The same objection was
again made by Mr. Adams, on
another question; and Mr. Beards-
ley moved to excuse him on the
ground that he had conscientious
tuples, &c. Mr. Adams repeat-
' . ... . '
f d that he did not want to be ex
cused, but wished the House to de
cide whether any of its rules
ought to be obeyed on Sunday.
Mr. Wise persisted in the neces
sity of a decision on this question;
and, going into an intemperate
strain, he asked if the majority,
who had been so tyrannical in
their proceedings, were lo have
the minority driven at the orders
of the party, for party purposes to
decide this question at midnight,
on the Sabbath? Was God's law
to give way to man's law, &c?
He stigmatised the majority as the
most bungling and disgraceful par
ty that ever existed, with much
more of this. Mr. Bynura of N.
C. roe to order, .and told Mr.
Wise plainly that, as one of the
majority, he would not sit there
to be so stigmatised. The Spea
ker said, the member from Virgi
nia must desist from his course.
Mr, Bynum, much excited, re
marked that he would not, in that
House or out of it, submit to h
bullied. He was ready to meet
the gentleman. Mr. Wise retor-
ted that tho rranllam.n f. XT l
farol,na was mistaken; he was the
last man that would dpir in hnt
ly him. He would as soon think
of bullying a fly. Mr, Bynum,
resenting this insulting language,
exclaimed, that, if the gentleman
from Virginia wished to insult
him, he had better take another
opportunity than in that House;
and finally, in the passion of J the
moment, he shook his fist, and
rushed towards him, exclaiming
that he was a d d scoundrel
Here the Speaker ordered the
Sergeant at-Arms to do his duty
Many members, however, Inter-;
posed to prevent any collision be
tween these members; and finally,
after a scene of disorder and ex
citenrtent seldom witnessed in any
assembly, and owing to the friend
ly offices of Mr. Mercer and oth
ers, an understanding took place,
and mutual explanations and apo
logies were made to the House
and to each other. After which,
the consideration of the petition
was postponed until this day; and
the House, after sitting until near
five o'clock on Sunday, adjourned.
Michigan and Arkansas. It
gives us pleasure to announce that
the bills to admit Michigan and
Arkansas into the Union have pas
sed the Senate. There was a
hard struggle on the part of the
opposition to prevent admission of
Michigan. This was a stroke at
both Territories. If the applica
tion of Michigan had been defeat
ed, having nearly double the pop
ulation of Arkansas, it would have
followed inevitably that both ap
plications would have been reject
ed. VVhen a northern and a south
ern Territory seek admission into
the Union, it is necessary to pre
serve the equilibrium between the
slaveholding and non-slavehold
ing States, that they should come
in together. If M ichigan had
been rejected, the vote of the
twelve northern States would have
certainly rejected Arkansas until
justice could have been obtained
for Michigan, and the opposition,
in succeeding against Michigan,
would have accomplished their
object against Arkansas. Even
after the Michigan bill had passed,
Mr. Clay held out against Arkan
sas with some few of his northern
The repugnance of the opposi
tion to the admission of these new
Slates, arises from a knowledge
that it weakens their strength in
the next Presidential election, and
their dwindling phalanx in the
Senate. Jt is a general principle,
too, with the aristocracy, to with
hold from the people their rights.
Under the compact of cession, the
north-western States are entitled
to admission whenever their pop
ulation amounts to sixty thousand.
That of Michigan nearly doubles
the requisite number. To keep
it out of the Union under such cir
cumstances, is consonant to the
I principles of a party which has
; uniformly made war upon the
rights of the mass of people.
Expunging Resolutions. Co.
Benton's Resolutions for expung
ing from the journals of the Sen
ate Mr. Clay's foul and false
charge against the President, will
be found in preceding columns of
to-day's Standard. -Col. B's
masterly speech on this subject,
has appeared in the Globe; and
shall be transferred to our col
umns, so soon as we can possibly
dispose of other speeches &t other
matter, which we had previously
given a pledge to publish.
I It seems that Col. Benton has
found a precedent, in the proceed
j ings of the Senate itself, to justify
j and sustain his expunging resolu-
lions. The following is the entry
on the journal of the senate:
"Monday, 5 o'clock P. M. A-
On motion thatevery thing in
the journal relative to the memo
rials of S. G. Ogden and Wra.
S. Smith, be EXPUNGED there
from." It passed in the affirmative,
yeas 13, nays 8." ...
It was, in fact, most radically
done not a trace of it was to be
found in the revised printed copy
of Ihe Journal.
This came upon the opposition
Senators like an electric shockl
they were astounded! being to
tally ignorant of the existence of
such a precedent, and consequent
ly wh.oll3' unprepared for the an
nunciation. A few federal Sena
tors only voted against this reso
lution. And will it be said by the
whigs, that the Senate of 1806
violated the constitution in ex
punging, an obnoxious entry on
their journal? Or will Mr. Tyler
say the Senators perjured .them
selves in voting for that resolution?
Dare he thus dishonor the memo-
rles of as pnre, as patriotic, and
as intelligent men as our country
ever knew? If not, can the A-
merican people trust to his judg
ment, or confide in his sincerity!
Pennsylvania. It seems that
the legislature of this stale has re
buked Gov. Ritner for his veto on
the bill for increasing the capital

passed the bill by ihe requisite
constitutional majority of two

vote in the House being 81 to 26,
and in the Senate 26 to C. to.

jXewbern, March 10, 1836.
Melancholy. A few mornings
ago, on our way to our Office, we
passed by the lifeless body of a
colored Man, who had expired on
the spot the night before. It
seems that this man, sometime the
preceediii evening, had attempt
ed to rob a hen-coop, by putting
his hand through a breach in the
enclosure of the premises, which
he had made for the purpose.
The owner of the property, also a
colored man, on the inside of the
inclosure, discovering the tress
pass, seized the hand of the thief,
with a view of detaining him until
assistance could be obtained for
his capture. Finding his strength
insufficient for his purpose, howe
ver, with a knife which he held in
his hand he made an incision in
the wrist of the offender before he
let go his hold, that he might af
terwards identify his person. By
th is incision, however, he acciden
tally severed one of the arteries of
the arm, and the unfortunate man,
after making his escape, and run
ning, a few squares, weakened as
is supposed by the loss of blood,
laid himself upon the ground and
eventually. fell into a sleep from
which he never waked. There he
lay, stiff and 'cold and covered
with blood; and there lay also the.
oDjecis ana evidences ot his theft
p-two fowls also dead and stained
with the blood of their purloiner.
How affecting,, how awful- the
thought, that a human being
should go, under such circum
stances, into the presence of his
judge. And yet this is a hazard
which every one must incur, who
permits himself to commit a delib
erate crime. Biblical Recorder.

"Accounts from New Orleans
represent the money market in
that city as somewhat embarrass
ed. From the collision between
Mexico ana lexas, cue usual re
ceipts of specie from Mexico have
diminished, the- present season,

demand for specie in New Orleans
has occasioned a reduction in
bank facilities, and brought down
exchange.on New York to 2 jl-2
per cent, discount for, best sixty

drafts made on the banks for spe
cie have rendered it necessary for
them to take this course, and, in
the exercise of a prudent discre
tion, to place themselves in a con
dition to meet any emergency.
The effect of it is to be seen -in a
