im mediatT but for the Yair lind open deal--ing
in specie, which the legislature cxpectiri
do not believe the banks arc now preparcd--because,
as I' have stated, the people are not
prepared to act with them. Our state has
hitheTto always been a debtor to the north ;
large sums of cash are annually required to
pay a balance, which our produce suited to
their market is not sufficient to pay. .
But at this time it is hoped our merchants
owe less abroad than heretofore ; and the new
article of cotton, which is at length attaining
consequence in this state, as an article of ex
port to the north, will go greatly to dimmish
the balance to be remitted in money. After
the crops oF the present year get in market,
our debtVill be greatly lessened. The north
ern banks and merchants having less claims
on us, will have less power to do us mischief,
and the experiment of specie payments may
then be made, if not with safety, certainly
with less danger than at this time.
" Upon the "whole, then, my opinion is, that
the suspension of specie payments was neces
sary, for considerations deeply affecting the
interests of the people of the state.
That the effects of the suspension has in no
wise injured the interests of the state or its
citizens while it has probably preserved the

1WDL'Q OF TJIE PILQRUMS.
The two hundredth anniversary of the landing
of the Pilgrims on the rock at Plymouth, Muss,
was celebrated throughout the New-lCngland
States on Friday, the 22d day of December.
The Massachusetts Historical Society, and nu
merous families and gentlemen from Huston and
other places, repaired to Plymouth, according to
previous arrangements, and joined the Pilgrim
Society of the latter place in the celebration of
this Centurial Anniversary. The ceremonies
were commenced by suhuble religious exercises,
after which an Address was delivered by the
Hon. Daniel Wfistek, which the Boston edi
tors state to have been very appropriate, power
ful and impressive.
About 450 gentlemen then sat down to a din
ner prepared for the occasion, and the festivities
of the day termijiatcd with a baU in the evening.
A beautiful song, composed for the celebration,
was sung by one or the gentlemen, of which the
following are the concluding stanzas :
. If greatness he in daring,
Our Pilgrim Sire were great,
Whose sojourn here? -nrnpariny ' :
Disease and Famine met ;
And oft their treach'rous foes combined
To lay the Grangers low,

We still the fruits are reaping
Of Pilgrim enterprise. , t

LITEST FROM Elf ROPE. -
RtW-fniK, Dcr. 30.
Th fn fast sailinp shin Hector, Capt. Itennet, arri
ved at this pirt yestenlay afternoon from Ijverpool,
whence iHi: tailed on the 19th tilt . The editors of the
Mercantile Advertiser have received hy this arrival ln-
don aer to the 17th Nov. inclusive, and Lloyds' Liil
of the Krth, I4th and 17th of Uiat month. Them- papers
furnish many articles of considerable infrest. Wc have
copied the most prominent.
lion UtiDiL its Hi a Ron, attacned to the Spaniih le
gation to tho I'nitvd States, arrived Rt the house of the
SiianiKh Consul in Hortleaux on Urn .tiAh tMoUer, witli
the Treaty for the Cr.siox or ti un,'whieh hatl
bnq ratified by thr Cortet. A letter from Bordeaux, tr
ceived at Paris on the 7th November, says he will embark
immediately, in the ship Itapid, of N. York, for Philad'a.
The proceedings against the Queen have terminated
in the House of Lords. It being ascertained, on the lOlh,
that there would only be a majority of 9 for the hill on
the third reading, a motion was made by Lord Mvrrpod
to postpone taking the question to thar day sit months,
which was carried. Tlua is considered in England an
abandonment of the prosecution, and great rejoicings had
taken place in consequence, throughout England. Lon
don was illuminated three successive nights, in a very
brilliant manner, the windows exhibiting transparencies
and placards inscribed "The Queen Triumphant." Horn
riots took place in the course of these demonstrations of
joy, and the windows of two ncup:ipcr offices Were de
molished. Lord Ijverpool, U i said, was about to resign.
CASK OK THK qb'KKN.
The question on the second reading of the bill
against the Queen was taken on the 6th of Nor .
when it appeared there were contents 123, non
contents 95 majority 28. On the following
day, the debate on the third reading was com
menced, which was continued until the Ktth.
The house then divided; when there appeared
for the third reading 108, against it 99, leaving r
majority of only nine in favor of the bill.
As soon as the state of the division was an
nounced, Lord Dacie arose, and holding a paper
in his hand, said he had been intrusted with a pe
tition from her majesty, praying to be beard by
counsel against the passing of the bill. Lord
JJverfiool said, that he apprehended such a course
would be rendered unnecessary by what he was
about to state. He could not be ignorant of the
slate of public Teeling wtth "regard to this mcas
urc, and it appeared to be the opinion of the house
tiiat the bill should be read a third lime only by
a majority of nine votes- Had the third reading
been earned by as considcrabje.a number of peers,
as the second, he end his colleagues would have
to send it down to the other branch of the lecis
lattirc. In the present state of the country, how
ever, and with the division of sentiment, so near
ly balanced, just evinced by their lordships, they
had come to the determination not to proceed
further with it. He should accordingly move
that the question that thr bill do pass be put on
this day six months. The most' vehement
cheering took place' on this unexpected declara
tion. Earl Grey rose as soon as the Earl ol m?
Ijverpool resumed his seat, but the confusion did
notv subsjd u
some time upon his legs.. His lordship com
plained of tlie whole conrsc mrnistcrs had pur
sued with regard to the bill, which, after the dec
Lrution of the noble carl, could scarcely be said
to be before the house, but which was still before
the country, and would loftg live in its memory -He
charged the servants of the crown with the,
grossest neglect of duty, in the first instance, i.ii
listening only to ex fiarte evidence and giving a
