And although unanimity was as important then as it is now, their patriotitm chuckled over our embarrassment. . . -' Mr. Speaker, how" does the matter now standi The resolutions originally introduced by a Whig, have been referred to a committee of four, two of either party, to be altered, pruned down, and smoothed over, so that the opinions of all might be met. The result of the labors of the committee are before as. The question stands upon the adoption of the resolutions introduced by the committee. Theayes and noes have been called And this call has brought upon us the implication of a want of generosity and pa triotism. The resolutions embarrass some of our friends of the 'other party.. They wish us to come to their relief, and takeaway the diasagreeable necessity of recording; their votes upon the journal. If we do this, Mr. Speaker, they must look upon it as a debt of magnanimity on our part not that they deserve such generosity. It will be a return of good for evil. And the gentleman from. Pitt will at once perceive with what bad grace the appeal be has made to our patriotism, &c. in a matter of this kind,. comes from from one of his party.

'Letters have been received in this' city, from the capital of Mexico, containing later advices from California than any which have yet been published. One of these letters, from an intelligent gentleman, and who is well informed on the subject, states-that further discoveries have been made in the gold region, which yield even a more abundant supply of the article than the previous diggins." The quan tity gathered already amounted to at least -$100,000 daily, and was constantly increasing, without appa rently any" exhaustion," or any limit to tne supply. There was a great deal of distress among all. the dig gers for the want of the common necessaries of life, and attended with very extensive sickness" and mor tality. Men loaded with gold, appear like haggard vagabonds, clothed in filthy and tattered garments ot the meanest kind. - It is 'stated that one man, who had two barrel of brandy, sold them out at the mines, hv th a small wine-o-laas. at rates which realized him the will of those who sent us should Be directly con- Xfwrtcen thousand dollar in gold.

Sir, from the course which -has been pursued, it is manliest that the bill id its present shape does not suit every one, for amendment after amendment has been offered, and if sobered to live longer the bill will be a perfect rndU tndilita Que molar.
