We understand that the meeting fcf our citizens

The Vice Presidency, rf-e. It appear to be con-
. eded on all hands that, Gen. Jackson will be re-elected
President of the United States lor four j years from
4th of March next. With, respect jto the Vice
Presidency, it is extremely uncertain' .who will be
tlect&ci to fill the vacancy that Mr. Calhoun's retire
ment will occasion. Several candidates are already
in the field. John Sergeant is to be run on the Clay
Ticket Amos Ellmaker with Mr. Wirt and Pcnn
v'.vinia seems resolved to throw away her vote on
Mr. Wilkin. The election of either of those named,
h entirely out of the question. The net considera
r.,;ii which presents itself is, who will be run on the
ticket with General Jackson ? New York is resol
ve 1 to support ir. Van Buren. "Vhat candi
date will be run by the States; South of ;the Potomac

Xcx Paper. We have received the first number
-f tne lie rata, printed at Windsor, JV. C. by Mr,
John Campbell, formerly Ktlitcr of t.h6 Milton Ga
zette. It is a neatly printed sheet, of ih'e super-royal
size, and will be devoted, as we inter irom the open
;ng addiesa of the Etlitor, to the maintenance ol
f.ouiid Republican doctrine. I !
ty to enter the Legations, that is to say; principlet-.
wtucn ao not aim at rebellion, anarchy, and the sufo-
including Franee, agree entirely upon this point. Let
the reports in question be true or false, they need not
occasion any, uneasin-fx with resoect to the affa s
of the Roman State. I am bound to inform the troops
of the different corps of thie.
It appears, though there is much anxiety to learn
the explanations of the Perier ministry on the subject
ofthi expedition, that neither the English nor French
funds have been affected by it, which is certainly a
favourable symptom ; but it is nevertheless a mysteri
ous manoeuvre, and one most likely to distract the
peace of Eu rone. On this the T on don Times re-
"We have before so fully expressed ourselves on
the policy of a French intervention in Italy, and on
! . i ...V,
uie now pnucipus ui liiit-rie.Ciics vviiiuu u. r iohou
expedition to the Papal States would establish, th it.
we need say notfiing nsore, till we hear ti t explana
tion of the Perier Ministry, or obtain an authoritative
statement, of facts from the French Government."
According to present appearances we have no hesi
tation in saving that, in the first place, no enterprise
was ever more uncalle i for; 2dly, that none was ev
r more likely to be either usele.W or injurious; 3dly,
that none ever manifested a greater departure from
the understood laws of national independence ; and
4thlv, that none was ev r more likely to lead to that
collision which all parties deprecate as the signal for
a war, vvnich all profess to deplore.
On each of thefour heads above assumed, the Times
proceeds to make some sensible remarks we have no
room for them to-day.
A French paper asserts that a courier from Vienna
has brought to. the Austrian Ambassador, at Paris,
same instructions which do not much agree with the
promises of disarming. Metternich it is said deman ds
a precise-explanation with regard to the expedition,
which appears as mysterious at Vienna as at Paris.

The most perfect understanding i established be
tween our troops at Ancona and the local authorities.
They occupy the citadel conjointly with those of the
Holy See. '
This ex-pedition, which had- been long forseen in
case that tranquillity should be again troubled in' the
Ruman States, will prove, like that of Belgium, the
honourable intentions of the French Government
and notwithstanding the small number of troops that
compose it, there" is hope that this second expedition
will prove like the first the happy result leading
more speedily in the estates of the Holy See, to a so
lution of the difficulties which the Powers earnestly
desire to see removed, as they have already proved by
the negotiations, whijh continue to be carried on with
London, March 8. In the House of Commons on
the 8th, Sir Vyvyati instituted an inquiry as lo the
lanuilig of the French troops at Ancona whether
the British Government had received any iq forma

with public duty, enter into details regarding the. pro

of the Hour-e of Representatives from Ohio, was as
saulted in the streets on the evening of the 13th inst.
by Gen. Samuel Houston, Lite governor of Tennessee.
The alledged cause of offence was certain remarks
made by Mr. Stanberry on the floor of the House
some ferwes'ago, on the subject of supplying the
emigrating indians with rations. At the time of at

erally, were now active in removing tlie record:
all of which I am happy to say were saved,
though not without some intermixture by the
bursting of some of the bundles.. The fire was
no doubt accidental, emanating from a spari

without -waiting for the Sheriff, they burst the

of Ohio, for words spoken by him in his place, as a
member of the House of Representatives from the
State of Ohio, for words spoken by him in his place,
as a member of the House, in debate upon a question
then depending before the House. -Before you are
called upon to answer in any manner to the subject
matter of this charge, it is my duty, as the presiding
officer of this House to inform you, that if you desire
the aid of counsel, the testimony of witnesses, time to
prepare lor your defence, or have any other request
dices, he can see things in their proper light;

sued by the House, and believing, as I do, that this
investigation is to form a precedent essentially invol
ving the liberty of American citizens, I will claim at
least twenty-four hours to prepare my responye to the
accusation. , .
Gen. Houston then withdrew in cuetony c4 me feear

stated his reply to the House. .
