We intended to Jiavo given itmt gciiiloiiiuii liia tluo, considering the space we then bail. But Mr. Jewell and bis young gentleman oflaleuis1 is nut at all suiicd with our views of the subject. This we can't help. 'Having no sincerily themselves, they cannot con. ceive that others have any.' Wc suppose this will nppty ns well to Mr. Jeucit ns to any one else, so we need not comment upon that. "They lake it for granted,' &c. We have not said Mr Barber is half as bad a man ns fiiend Jcwett would infer. We believe Mr Baiber has acted an inconsistent part of late, m ill i the principles be has heretofore professed, and cannot, in our opinion, bo reconciled with strict honest principles, houcver much he may persuade himself to the contrary Van Burcnism and Anti masonry hate no more nfliiiily than oil and water, and Messrs. Barber, Jcwett, Braiucrd & Co, will find it to be so in the end, wc opine. From these views and others, wc inferred that Jlr Baiber was insincere in his professions, and until we have more satisfactory light upon the subjective shall continue of the fame opinion. Have wc not u right to our opinion, neighbor Jewell, without being chaigcd of 'having no sincerity' 1 I'luck the beam out of thine own ee before thou atlemptcst to pull the mote out ofotlicrs ! We arc not disposed to retort tlio charge 'hypoc- rasy' upon Mr Jewell, but we think be had better look around him, for it is not impossible but he nay find a tool. Mr Jewett seeui3 to 'amnio' himself considerably because the Whigs icntuto tu express an opinion upon the inconsistency of the feeders fiom Ami masonry and who join themselves to Van liuten, just as though a Whig was incapable ofjudging be Uveen right and wrong ! Can't a lliird parly judge as well of tho other two, ns they ilicmseltcs 1 It is nonsense to contend to thrconliary. It is only an evasion to say that the third paily have heretofore been inconsistent, no mailer whether that be Hue or false. The mil for Distributing the Surplus Revenue. After a long tiege against this bill, by Van Huron and his tools, the 1 tn. defaligable minority,' and the voice oT The People, have convinced the more conscien tious portion of tho political friends of the Administration, that it would not answer to leave the People's money in the hands of po litical gamblers, that they might use it for corrupt purposes. Wc rejoice at the result of this contest for several reasons, and one is, there is moro virlua in a vast majority of our national legislators, than wo could dare to hope for, taking into consideration their former and more recent proceedings ; we speak moro especially of the Houso of Representatives. We say, 'honor to those to whom honor is due.' Tho apportionment to the several states as calculated by the New York American is "Upon the supposition that tho amount to bo distributed will bo $20,000,000, as calculated for us in round numbers, the ap portionment according to the electoral col- logo ratio, that ti, according to tlio rcpro Bontation of each Stale in the Senate and House of Representatives.

It is with feelings of tho sincerest rrrati fication that wo record tho triumphant, par. sigo of Mr. Webster's Bill for tho regu lation of the Deposits Banks, and tho Bis tribution of the Surplus Revenue. It pas scd tho House of Representatives on Tues day, whitli sumo Blight amendments in which tho Senate will unquestionably con cur. One ol the amendments restores an essential provision of Mr Webster's origin al Bill that was amended out of it in the Senate. Wo congratulate tlio country upon the event. The passage of this Bill proves that the shackles of party aro bro' ken. It is a fact worthy of especial notice that the most Jbitlcr opponent nf the Bill, in tho Senate, was one of Mr. Van Burcn's Senators from New York and that of the thirty-eight negativesin the House, eighteen were those of the entire Van Buren dele gation from the same Slate. Thus the most obnoxious Kill of the session the Incendiary Publication Bill was sustained bv Mr Van Buren and his friends; while the most use ful, necessary and popular Bill has mot with their uncompromising opposition. The Dill came up in the House on Tues day. On m tion of Mr Lane, the House resolved itsolfintoa committee of the whole Mr Sutherland in the chair. Having been read by the clerk, it was token up section by section. Many amendments were moved by the Van Buren men with the view of embarrassing its passage. Mr Mann, Mr Jarvis, Mr Ripley, Mr Droingoole, Mr Ash Mr Pierce, Mr Gillett all faithful collar men moved amendments and tho record of them all runs, lnei lost lost! Many of tho amendments were rejected by accla mauon. v motion to postpone was lost. Every effort to got rid of tho Bill was a lame and mortifying failure. The House had determined to tamper with corruption and faction no longer and tho Bill was finally carried, at about nino o'clock, in tho evening, by a triumphant vote of o.e hun dred A!D FIFTY FIVE TO TIItriTY EIGHT. The Bill went back to tho Senate on Wednesday. It was undoubtedly taken up immediately in preference to all other busi ness concurred in and before the noon of that day. was sent to the President for his signature. The Constitution allows him ten days for consideration it must therefore bo returned to the Senale'bv Sa turday next, a week from this day, with the President's signature or his veto" THE BUBBLE IS BURSTING. There seems to bo at last a gleam of sunlight on mo political darkness that has shrouded the country. There are evident indications that the sceptre has departed from Prosidcnl Jackson. His advisers are no longer omnipotent in Congress. His party is falling to piece. Mr. Benion can not rallv tlmm in tbo Scnnlo. Mi- nm j ... -.-..v. .? . .

York but a few weeks sinco the file-leaders, tho fuglemen of Congress have been shorn of their beams. The violent leaders have attempted to carry things with too high a hand. The honest members of the party could not submit to it. Tho real ly republican members were well aware that it was impossible to reconcile the pro posed extravagant expenditures, with their promises to the people, and the policy of a republican govarnincnt. They knew that it was out of the question to convince tho people lha forty millions is a smaller sum than thirteen milinns nr ilmt cV.. y u. luu, siiy lions in tho treasury on tho first of January n-ij i.uii9iuuiuuiu biirpius, after providing for all legitimate expendi tures. Under theso circumstances, it cannot be a matter of surprise that Mr. Van Buren and (he chief consntraf nrs linvn hnnn I uuwi UUII- demned of late to tho most signal defeats. Mr. uenton lias uniformly exhibited tho most bitter hostility to I bo Deposite and Surplus mil of Mr. Webster. It was seen that a feeling was abroad favorable to the bill. The parly becamo alarmed. Wo speak from positivo information when we say that caucus after caucus was hold of the faithful, at which Benton, Wright and Van Buren opposed any distribution of the Son.pi.us, except by Mr. Height's plan of investing it in stocks. Others of the party difTered. Pinal action was dolaved, and every effort was made by thorn in" the Senate tn avoid a direct vote. They once united in a vote to recommit, with instruc tions to BCDarato tlin flnnnailn r.c.r. .1:. tribulion of tho surplus; but the vole was reconsidered, and tho bill was ordered to etirrrOSSmcllt llV n vnlo nf .in ln r. 'in... next day canio a sccno of great interest, i Whon the vole was about to bo taken, Mr. Benton rose and delivered n bitter Philip pic, in which his own friends came infor a lar"v share of abuse. lie was overbearing, supercilious, insolent to the last degrco ; treating tlio Jackion Senators with n haughty contempt, and assuring them that the moasuro would become in a few months so odious, that they would bo ashamed to hear of it ! This ho rcnealcd so often that tho Sena. tors of his party would no longer submit to it. Tho prido and spirit of Virginia wore touched at the brow-bcating insolence of this political ruffian, and sho spoko nut with some portion of her old integrity. Mr. (lives took tlio floor, and dclivcrod himself with ureal earnestness. Ho denounced extravarant . expenditures, declaring his utter nbhorrencc of the thought of appro nriatinir Fifty Millions- -alleging that all such schomcs were at v.irianco with his whole life and all his professions. Ho al luded to the distribution project of Presi dent Jackson, in hismessaguof 1030, and retorted upon Ucnlon wilh a decided con demnation of tits course. Mr. Rives was followed by Van Buren's Now York Sena tor, Mr. Tallmadgc, who went on in the same strain, to the great, astonishment of the party at largo and of Mr. Benton, the great cxpunger, in particular. Tins was the first public outbreak of irri tated and exasperated feelings, which had been suppressed and concealed. Mr Ben ton was distinctly told that he must, no longer pretend to dictate as a leader, lie was discomfited, mortified, indignant. He is a man of violent and vindictive temper, and tho most uncurbed insolence of manner and expression. Ho is sustained by the Kitchen Cabinet, tho Globe, and tho New York delegation, with tho single exception of Mr. Tallmadge. It is known that Prts ident Jackscn sides with Mr. Denton. The Senator looks forward to further elevation, and he clings to the skirts of tho General with unshaken pertinacity, it is under stood at Washington that the President denounces all who voted for the bill in the Senate, with great freedom, and not in the most decorous language. He is not much in the habit ot picking his phrases. When the bill was sent to the House from tlio Senate tub President imme diately G AVC OUT THAT HE SHOULD VETO it notwithstanding Mr. Itives said that he could never believe him capable of such a course, until he should sco tho document in black and white. The party rally com menced. The heads of the departments vis ited the messes. Tho drill sergeants went the rounds; and the force was to be brought to bear on the taking up of the bill, which requires a vole of two thirds. We arc well advised of the fact, that the parly received assurances that tho President would veto ; and that he would c.-tccm it an act unfriendly to himself to give any counlc nanco to the measure. Every argument was employed to dissuade and deter. But, for once, the representatives of the people had the firmness to consult the interests of tho people. They broke through all the obstacles that were thrown in tho way of the bill. The power of discipline has failed. A breach has been made in the ranks of tho Jackson phalanx; the caucus policy lias been signally defeated. Tins is not the result of accident, but of determined spirit of resistance to the sla vish dominion under which tho party has hitherto groaned. The collars and chains havo been snapped. The defection has caused much ill. blood and bitter feeling, Rives and Tallmadgo may be excommuni cated. Rives has no disposition to consult the dictation of Benton. There is an obvi ous determination among the Jackson mem bcrs of the Senate to rid themselves of tho odious and insolent rule of the Senator from Missouri. Thoy will throw him over board at the first convenient opportunity ; but as long us he is sustained by the Presi dent the struggle will be a hard one. To use tho language of one of their own mem bers "the bubble is bursting." This is equally true wilh Mr. Van Burcn's admis sion ' We are in a box." Every effort will of course be made to heal the breach among the leaders. But Mr. Benton is fierce, indom'tablc, and implacable ; ho harmonizes with the rutHan politicians of the ulobc; and with Ins help thoy rule the President. Ho has an ovo on the throne, and is afraid that Mr. Rives will attain a consideration that may make him a formida ble rival. He will urge on the President, and it will be difficult to restrain the old man from violent and indecent denuncia lions. What will result from all this, a few days will show. Meanwhile we wait, with intense interest, for Anther develop mcnts. Dost. Atlas. I'Vom the New Yoik Courier, June 25. The Deposite Dill become a Law. The Globe of yesterday, announces the Presi dent's approval of the Ucpnsito Bill, and accompanies tho annunciation by a string of sulky remarks. The Globe is evidently chagrined and mortified at the results, but is obliged to swallow the mortification as best it may. Tho President it appears, is by no means pleased with the bill, though according to the ofiicial mouth piece, it lias been so framed as to relievo him fpsio. any constitutional scruples. Thu Globe in the course of its remarks, savs tho President would not have hesitated to veto the bill if it had been presented to him as it went from the Senate, and takes occasion to add tho following authoritative declaration of the royal will, regarding future dispositions of the revenue. "It is probable ho tho President will take some fitting occasion to make known to his countrymen, in detail, tho views lie entertains on this vilal subject. It is only necessary now that they should know, that in approving the depnsile bill he does not intend to COUNTENANCE, in the least degree, the idea of raising money by the Geneial Government for distribu tion among the States." INDIAN WAR. Gen. Clinch recently appointed to the command of the Army in Florida, was daily

expected at St Augustine on the tlth inst. A companv of mounted Volunteers had arrived at St. Augustine under tho com mand of Captain Curry. They were mus tcrcd into tho eervica for six months. They will bo engaged in scouring thocoun. try about tho vicinity of Mandarin. Capt. Southwlck states, that Capt Dim- imick's company of mounted Volunteers, which had boon despatched from St. Au gustine on a Bcoutinir expedition to the south, had returned. They had fallen in with a larso Indian trail about St. Aucu tine. Tho Indians had captured a consid erable number of cattle, and had taken up t'altcsar bridge after crossing it. From the Saint Augustine Herald) Attack uroN Micanoi-y nv the In dians. An oxpress arrived in town last night, from Micanopy, with tlio intelligence that that placo had been attacked on the 0th inst, by 150 to 200 Indians. The at tack took place at noon. Major Hoilcinan who had just arrived thcro a few hours previous, with a part of two companies, had sent an express to Oakland, (M'lntosli'n) who shortly afterward returned slating, that he had seen a large number of Indians on the road advancing on towards Mican opy. Soon after they came up and com menced firing at the fort a long distance off. Major Hcilcman, with a part of Captain Landrum's and Capt. Drano's companies, witli a piece of artillery, and a few dragoons amounting in all to about 75 men, sailed out and attacked them in front wilh tho artillery, and on both flanks, with tho other troops, and succeeded in beating them off, after on action of an hour and a half. The loss on our side, five wounded ; among them one officer (Lieut. Leo.) Tno Indians succeeded in carrying off their dead and woundod, so that they could not bo ascer tained. The above aro all the particulars wc have been able to procure. An express is hourly expected from Micanopy, which will bring some further information from that quar ter. Tho post at Oakland has been order ed to bo abandoned immediately. Capt.Uimmick's and Loiut. Irwin's com panies have been ordered to r ort mane, from this post. The former started at 3 o'clock. The latter has been engaged in semiring tlio country between this and Picolata durinz the past week, and will join Capt- Diintnick, at Picolata, and pro ceed to Fort Urano immediately. Tho Columbus, (Geo.) Herald of the 13th inst. furnishes the following. Wednesday, June 8th. A party of Indians attacked the planta tion of a Mr Edwards about 15 miles from Columbus ; Mr E. was ploughing in his field and was shot down while thus engaged after shooting him, tho inhuman wretches went to his body, and mangled it in a most shocking manner, scalping him and literally cutting him to pieces. It was truly for tunato that this gentlcmin's family had, a short time previous, removed to another part of tho country. From 40 tn 50 Indians visited the pianla tion of Gen. Watson, distant about 10 miles from Columbus, and killed a negro woman, shooting her twice, and carrying off with them thrct other negroes. Gen. W. and son made a narrow escape: thev wero on their way to tho plantation, and had arriv cd within n few miles of the house, when they wore met by several of the negroes who wero running Irom the Indians; their master immediately turned back to save himself and son from the Tomahawk. The Steamboat Metamora returned from her expedition down the river, this morning. Sho was fired upon briskly from both sides of the river as she went down, by the same party of Indians, ns was supposed, that had been at General Watson's plantation. Tho troops were unfortunate as to be disappoint cd in a fight. They landed near Dr. Shop- pard's the day after tho engagement be tween the Gwinnett and Stewart troops and the Indians, and visited the field of battle. They found the dead bodies of eight white men, four from each company, and buried them decently. A few more wero missing from the ranks, but it is pre sumed they had reached some place of safety ere this. Capt. Germany, of the Gwinnett volunteers, is on board the Metamora, wounded in the thigh a flesh wound merely. Two privates are also on board, wounded in the same engagement. The dead bodies of the while men aro said to have been dreadfully mangled. The Indians. Wc confess we are pre pared to believe most any thing which re lates to the hostile intentions of the Indian tribes now residing within our territory, and the following, from the New York Star expresses our views upon that subject 'Wo have often adverted to tho fuct I hat , however widely distant from or hostile to each other may be tho various tribes of In dians on our extended frontier, they arc in constant communication witli each other, and to a man are ever united in feeling and sentiment against their natural enemies and conquerors, the white population of this country. The war belt, it is well known, has been sent by the murderous Scminolcs to the Winnebagoes of tlio extreme north, and Black Hawk, their exasperated and implacable chief, as the dethroned monarch who has been supplanted by Keo Kuck, has been industriously at work to give it circulation. We know that tho Creeks are at this moment in a bloody war with our people, kindled by the exulting Seminolcs : and we learn by a letter from an officer at Fort Leavenworth, that the successes of these latter have already reached tho far west beyond the Arkansas, and that the Kickapoos have held their war dances there in celebration ol these victorious. From the Cour. & Enq. of June 23. TEXAs.--Extract of a letter dated Vo lasco, 25th May, and received this morning from a distinguished individual whose situ ation in Texas gives htm full opportunity to know ovcry thing that passes in that country. "Wo have General Santa Ana still with us as a prisoner, and 1 believe ho will yet remain for some time. He has, however, mado a compact with tho Texan govern ment, tho basis ot which is, the evacuation of tho Territory to tho Rio Grande sol cmn plrdgo undor oath not to take up arms against Texasdelivery of prisoners, and tiio liberation of Santa Ana himself when the government of Texas shall deem expe dient. Tho pcoplo arc much incensed against him, and the government has with difficulty saved his life. "1 beliovo the war iscndod, andVhat the futoofTcxas is settled. Now wo alono wait for tho tranquility of Mexico. A great revolution threatens her." By tho Mobile Chronicle of June llth, wo learn tho important fact of tho depar ture of General Houston fur tho Tcxian Army, his wound having almost entirely re. covered. This will bo as unexpected and as fearful intelligence; to some as it will be heart cheering to others, and as wc hope and beliovo furtunato and happy for Texas. Gen. II. politely declined the kind invita lion of his friends in Now Orleans to a pub lic dinner, on the honoiablc objection that ho ought not to appear on any festive occa sion, while there was an enemy remaining in his adopted country. Tho Mexican Government, not discour aged by the defeat of their troop9, were preparing to send a largo army into Texas, in which event Santa Ana and the prison era with him would bo put to death. A letter in the New Orleans Bulletin of junc 10, from Galveston Island Roads, dated May 23, soys that Cos is much hurt with the bitterness of the language used in the American newspapers toward Santa Ana and himself. He also felt tho rcmorso of his conscience keenly stung by various per sons visit ingtffeim to tell him that he had killed a father, a son, or a brother. He is under well grounded apprehensions that he will soon be shot, which would however be but a poor punishmet for his crimes. The Tcxian army had crossed I ho Colorado, and wore on their march westward. Star. Creek War. This war, if wo aro to bo lievc the last reports, is about to become amalgamated with that of the Scminolcs in Florida. A body, of 2000 Crocks as it will be recollected having, it is said, crossed tho Chattahoochie on their way to join Oscola. The following extract of a letter which wc have received to-day from Qjiincy in Flori da, Juno 12th, seems to confirm this infor mation : QutNCY, June 12, 183G. Sir An express has inst arrived which. brings us the intelligence that the Indians (Creeks) are crossing tho Withlacoochio below Fort Uaine3 iheir number is two thousand headed by a Seminole chief. Thompson and Decatur counties arc almost deserted. If this should be the case the Scminolcs will give us a hard campaign. The Globe publishes a general order of the Army, dated May 2G by which in case Ucn. bcott and ucn. Clinch should not continue on duly in Florida, Gov. Call of Honda is authorized to tako command of the regular troops of the United States, and of the militia serving in Florida. Gen. Scott has left the territory, and wc learn from the Globe that the resignation of Gen. Clinch has been accepted by the President. Consequently tho command of the troops in Florida devolves on Gov. Call. Naval. Many improvements aro now making in the Navy Yard at Charlestown. Already the most complete and commodi ous in the country, it is to bo rendered still more convenient by tho addition of a new rope.walk of very large size and several now ship houses. The latter are nearly finished, and tho rope-walk is rapidly pro gressing. It is to be of stune and brick. with a slated roof, and will be amply suffi cicnl for tho manufacture nf all the cordage necessary for the use of the navy, unlo?s some extraordinary occasion should arise requiring corresponding activity in fitting out tho new vessels for sea. Tho Independence is nearly ready lo leave the dry dock, ai the renairs aro com pleted, and tho painting is now goiin' for ward- It is expected she will bo one of tho fastestif not tho very fastest vessels in the navy.
