current demand on the government. W bate

public duet of aay kind, will be forthwith
paid out again to defray the appropriations,
ad the settled policy of the degKXUnont has
been and will be to keep nothing idle in the
Treasury while the power eaists to issue
Treasnry notes to meet contingencies, and
deficiencies as they snay hereafter occur. .
Kespectfully yours,
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
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
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.

however, to state that, whatever may
be llie fiual course of the house upon
this subject, it is pretty well demon
strated that the committee transcended
their powers, very metcrially, in mak
ing the report they have done. As to
the publication of the evidence atnd

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,

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.

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. "
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

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.",

We res-retted to tee that the

self yesterday against the joint retolu-

encourage the general resumption ol

degree of relief to the country. After
the movement substantially to the same
effect by Mr. Hamer, in the House of

The objections I have heretofore entortaiited to
ha becoming the mart of ibis State, have van

which I deemed of a most formidable charac

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. From the books of the Treasury
Department it appears that its revenue in 1813,
during the war, was 1103,314 00. To it, ia.
now directed the attention of various persons in
tbe adjoining Ststei, ind of many of oar enter

gentleman of Tennessee, in his correspondence
with one of the citizens of Beaufort thinks that
it ought to be made the "outlet nf many of I he
Western States, and thnt it would then ullU
