Kespectfully yours, Signedl LEVI WOODBURT. Maraaa AmiTts, Esq. Boston, Mass. For our part, we can perceive nothing whatever, in either of the pre ceding letters, that manifrsts a dispo sition to abandon the subtreasurj scheme, r the policy recommended in the President's messaage at the extra session of Congress. In the letter of the 18th of March, the Secretary aava, that all wilt be done bv the Treasury Department " t. oromote the resumption of specie pajmentt by the banks "which comes witain its niutieu powers. now whst are those powers, as expounded by the Secretary himself? In bis last annual report he said, " l be powers of the General Government to hasten such a resumption are circumscribed to the use of some constitutional au therity. of a restrictive or penal char acter, such aa taxation, or a bankrupt law,' "or the ' furnishing some met dental aid in the exercise of other rights. w He then sajs, -Beyond such incidental aid to some of the baaks with which nscal connexions mar have existed, not cenerall y equal ing one-twentieth ol the whole nam . ber, it ie doubtful whether the Gener al Government, however solicitous to tee that object accomplished, would be able, conatituliovallT, to provide any special assistance in effecting it." In the letter of the 9th of April, the "tame views are titl cherished," as were expressed in the former, and of course the action of the Department was to be restrained within the same "limited powers." In respect to the receipt and payment of bank notes for public collections and disbursements, the Secretary says, 'they are and will be paid where acceptable to public creditors." Did the secretary mean to say, that the Trasurer of the Uni ted States would offer no such notes to public creditors in place ol giving checka on the depositories. of the pub lie money? " W e suspect not. That, we apprehend, would exceed his lim ited constitutional powers. But if an offer of bank notes wss not first made to all public creditors, in payment of their dues, the spirit of the Secreta ry's letter would not be complied with. labia last report, the Secretary in relation to this matter, said: "It Must bo manifest to all who oxamina tha onbjoct dispassionately, that either the poases eion by a fcw banks of the usual snail agiouDt of the public oopasitea, liable at any time to be recalled, or the receipt of their bill for public duet, when redaomeJ ia specie on demand, and frequently presented lor that purpose, must oAea ha a cheek rather than aa aid, and prove ofdsutful advantage1 in promoting reeump Una among the whole number." . We confess our scepticism as to the recent professions of the Secretary contained in his letters. . We repeat, what we have on more than one occa sion said, the action of Congress a lone can bring about i general relump tien of specie payments. . , MadUordtti, cowoncssioMA-u, In the Senate, on Thursday, 86th April, the bill to create Board of or I 'Commissoners to examine and report on claims against the United States, u ordered to be engrossed for.a third reeding.

As to the publication of the evidence atnd journal, that can jlo no possible harm, as it turns out. The majority's party report of that most imbecile of chsir- men Mr. roucey of Connecticut, is the only thing that may be dreadeil, at a party engine. But even this can do but little harm, if accompanied with the masterly rebuke of Stanley of N.

You cannot be in error in coming to the conclusion that this attempt to use the death of Mr. Ciller as a political engine, will as signally fail in Congress, as the same attempt has failed every wheie else outof Congress. But more of this hereafter. At half past three o'clock, a motion was made by Mr. Bell by permission of Mr. Menifee, to adjourn, :Mr. Menifee having the floor, and being in the midst of a speech. Ayes 76, Nays 96. Mr Mallory then dtmanded a call of the house. Mr Jenifer asked for the reas and nays which were ordered. Vliereupon Mr Potts moved an adjournment, carried, 92 to 75 and so ended the at tempt to force a question to-night. In the Senate on Monday, April 30, Mr. Xlay submitted the following resolution, which was read and vrtkr ed td'a secood reading: "Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Con. gress assembled, 1 hst no discrimination sliall be made as to the currency or medium of payment in the several branches of the Public Revenue, or . in debts or dues to the Govern. meiit ;mt thaUuntil otherwise ordered by Con. gress, the notes of sound banks which arc payable and paid on demand in legal the cur rency of the Uniteit States,under suitable res trictions, to be forth ithprescribed and promul gated by the Secretary of the Treasury, shall be received in payment of the revenue and of debts and dues to the Government, and shall be subsequently disbursed, in a course of public expenditure, to all public creditors who are illing to receive them.' The biH to provide for the security and protection of the' emigrant and other Indiana West of Missouri and Arkansas, was ordered to be engrossed for a third reading. " DUEL REPORT. In the House of Representatives, Mr. Menifee made a most able argu ment against the preposterous proposi- lion 10 tancuon toe proceedings ol a committee who . have presumed to put a man upon hit trial without letting him know, it, to receive ei parte testi mony against him, and to condemn him before the world upon that evi dence. . .

At this point an animated discussion ensued, upon what if Mr. Adam's mo tion were to prevail, the Committee would have to do. This was a debate of mere order, though it occupied a nol deal ol time. In the Senate, on Tuesday, the 1st May, nothing important was transact ed. In the House of Representatives, Mr Lamureieng presented a communica tion from the Treasury Department, stating what was the state of tlie Tree sury yesterday, aa to its available re sources, viz: -- Amount of Treasury" notes' Issued up to April 28th inclusive, per Treasurer's statement, $9,423,959 31 Will probably bo issued 30th April, 1838, 135,000 00 9,658,959 00 1838, 10,000,000 00 Not issued on a May 1st, sJMtl.tMO 69 les reeeivedr land, and debts to IT VnooO availaht' iift,de- Treasury nole In payment of debts Other funds ducting M 00,000 f00 trust funds, (lea The remai was spent or the In nia? xn je. lJon r mane' tion w sy nrotec third) oty no im Monday In th7. received!, eating a ct ating act an Minis! eged to havv rmed vesselu .MO o a can lei armed boat Columbia. ter contends ttL Columbia, and nnK Iturbide, provoketfv and that "the former ehouW .fore, be responsible for the resthsy-whaterer it may be." 1 his note is accompanied by a statement from the commander of the M exican vessel, declaring that al though he fired - several guns, they were discharged in a direction very wide of the boat, for her to stop."

Sir Walter was satisfied of the truth of this rela tion, but did not think that the laws of nature were suspended to save Mr. It. a sum of money. I he most proba ble solution of the matter was, that he had heard the old gentleman tell the story some day after dinner j that the young gentleman at the time paid a dreamy attention to it, asvroong-rmrn will do to the old reminiscences, and that in "his tlream the matter had flash ed upon his mind. It was evident that Mr. R. had heard something of the matter, for he said he had as trong feeling that the tithes were hot " due. We ought to be satisfied, then, that there was nothing miraculous in this case. .. Remarkaile Eicape. During the thunder storm on Satur day night the lightning struck the House of Mr. Levy, on East Bay, two doors below Market street. The lower floor of the building is used as a Clothing store. On the same floor there were in one room twenty one persons, the family and their friends and relatives, who were burnt lout by the fire thenight before, and hd just assembled for supper. They were all struck down by the electric Vid, and all escaped unhurt, as did v five other individuals who were the house at the time. This is s wonderful to any person who Vxamined the track of the fluid, g and .re-crossing the rooms, e garret downwards, and tear. wa, lurmture, and every its course. There was a tin at the time, which proba- rerented fire, and a fire in that of the city would have added much e calamities of the night before. Cfiai. Mir. Curiout Scene. A mong the para aphs, equally interesting and ques tionable, with which the English pa pers teem, we find a late one illustra tive of 'hope deferred." Not long since, while a marriage ceremony was in progress, a roost amusing circum stance occurred, which completely put a ttop to the performance at a most in teresting part of it, and set the disap pointed maiden and her anxious lover two different ways, any thing but re joicing. It teems that the young cou ple had gone separately to a church for the purpose pf being marie one. The ceremony went on well enough until the minister came to. tlie words' with this ring I thee wed;" when the bride, essaying to take her glove off her maid en hand lor the last time, could not ef fect it. Whether it was agitation or heat, nervousness or perspiration, the i .1 . . i . ja a a learner ciung 10 ner nana as a ma ought to do, and would not part com pany. ' The bride blushed and pulled; the bridegroom (bold man!) laughed outright; so did the father so did the mother; so did all the spectators, ex cept the clergyman, and he exclaimed. "I did not come here to be laughed at;" and shutting the book left the ceremo ny half finished, the bride half married, and the glove half off. It is happily added, however, apparently for the in formation of all who may sympathize with the disappointed fair one, that she tried again the next day with much success. That time she went to church with glovelest hands, and the nuptial knot was tied 'tight as a glove.", Phil, Gaz. We res-retted to tee that the admrtff istration party in the Senate arrayed it- self yesterday against the joint retolu- tion proposed by Mr. Clay, designed to encourage the general resumption ol specie payments, and to extend tome degree of relief to the country. After the movement substantially to the same effect by Mr. Hamer, in the House of Representatives, (though afterwards abandoned on the express ground of co incident intimations from the Treasury Department and by the official paper) after this movement, and the official declarationa of the Secretary of the Treasury and of the Government jour nal, (though alf put forth just before k j .07 Va the New Y Hjbeen tuppo welded to i Vanity, an tbe New York election,) it waa to have pposed that the Executive had the necessities or the cool ly, and designed to far to inter i I mit its hostilitv f. viitH-! i n u i ..'.x-v-i i-J-blu . tiona of the cnunlrv aa tn a in returning to specie pajyu.

Editor: I eshoot describe the pleasure 1 have realised on visiting toe town of Beaurort. The objections I have heretofore entortaiited to ha becoming the mart of ibis State, have van ished like mist before the rising Sun. " One, which I deemed of a most formidable charac ter, ia esteemed by mariners as real advan tage, I allude to the capes. They are reveal ed as tha natural bulwarks of the Slate, eoVeta- ally preventing a regular blockade in time of war, are not as dangerous aa thorn ef Philadel phia or the eoast of Charleston, and can he ea sily avoided by an experienead navigator. From additional information reccivad,, I am inclined fully to concur in opinion with Dr. Caldwell, that this place is destined to rie to considera ble importance. In hseoent report made by Lieut. Colonel Kearney v he slstes that it '-deserves : to he made the principal inlet to ibe sounds of N. Carolina. An appropriation has accordingly been requested lor deepening Core 8ound, the channel of communication between Beaufort and Newbern, Washington, Edenion and other towns near the sounds of Pamtieo end Albemarle.
