null thnt lliu authors ntid friends of lie report warn not ready to meet tho argu ments with which I ho distinguished gcntlo man of the opposition nonnilei) II, mi the very spur ol Ihu occasion. Mr Grimily, however, went ho for in l ho ilulonco an to di-clnmi. must emphatically, nny design l injure the Stnlcs, or to rcbuku or infill them. Very liliely not. Bui whnt signify nil those disclnimors. when Ihu whole Ion. ilency nnil enil of llinnclH of Ihu coniiiut U'O h lo do t Ins injury unilgivo I h la olloiicc ? Willi regnrd lo n gross error in the re port, in staling theiimuiinl of the debt of Louisiana. Mr Gnmdy virlnally niliniiied thnt he hnd taken up the report ot a New York Cuniptiollor, Mr Flogg, foi his nu- i"nri,y- ... In n brief, but pungent rejoinder, .Mr Crittlenden reinforced, whnt 1 understood, were Ins former objections to tho report The States nf the Union nru held up, in it invidiously, us being in debt to the n mount of Tten Hundred Millions of Dollars! und lest iwiv of the evils of such a Mate of indebtedness shnuld escapo tho notice of the world, they are commented on with oil 1 ho pmdignlity of language nnd illustra tion: iiiul when the committee arc asked for tho grounds of their statement, they cnu show none. But the chairman tells the Senate ol'a calculation thnt hasgleaned faintly on his memory and it was the bast of this structure! How, (Mr Crit. tcmli'u asked could a stnlcsmnn come into the Senate, and venture to announce to the world his opinions on this ntnsl impor tant anil delica'o subject, without being 'fciire of Ins grounds .' He repented, that nil disclaimers 'to tho contrary notw ithstnrding, thnt 'this report wn, in substance nnd tone, in its whole nun and object, n gross indig nlty lo die Slntes. Suppose n mini were to fro on to charge and proclaim to every one he met, that one of his neighbors wos immensely in debt, (nnd that too without knowing anything certain about Ins coutli lion) and thai neighbor hud better not I come to him for secuniy, for he should not get il would ihut not bu regarded ns offensive? That is a similar case. Have the Slates nsked the Government lo bo come iheir security ? When ? Where? What Stale? They have not osked it. Yet they nre brought up here in view of the whole world not for punishment ; Oh no ! i hey nre not caught by the heard and shaken, or by thu throat and cuiistruiued but ihey receive lectures nnd auimadver sums in a most circumlocutory manner, and the whole world is told to mark well that thnt they nre greatly in debt, nnd Hint their Government will nut become i heir se curity ! Mr Crittenden made no motion : but be expressed Ins hope thnt the majority would see ihe propriely of recoinmtnng this re port, with instructions to inquire into the tacts; und nscertnin how much was the amount of the whole debt of the states', nnd how much was the part of each; nnd stole ihese things not with ambiguous ver bosity, but plainly nnd specifically; so that if the Cuinmitcc were deiafetumcd to act the churncter of Mentors tho country nn "lit have correct information. Mr Betiinn, though not a member of i he cnnmmicc, had. I dare say, much to ilo with Us work. He now rose, and s fter a few explanations, proposed the printing of "the hirgest number of copies that has ever bpon printed of any document." no less thno thirty thousand .'! ! He further moved I lint the report should be made the order of the doy for next Monday. Mr Southard next got the floor; and nsked the chairman of the committee, where he found the proposition for assum ing the Siule debts, which he had been combatting so industriously ? Mr. Griimly replied, lhat notice had been given by a member of the House of Represeniuiives, of Ins inientiun lo bring torwurd a measure of dial kind. Mr. Southard. -'And whnt is the gen t Ionian's ground for action by us in the Senate! To anticipate and countervail a proceeding m thu other branchof Con Kress? After commenting very properly on this indecorum lo the House of Representatives Mr Southard proceeded to show 'the in evilably injurious effect of the promulga tion of the report with the bancl'ion of the Senate. Mr Smith, of Indiana, followed witli some judicious and forcible remarks against the whole proceedings. Mr Brown, of N. C. spoke a short time; hut he ndded little or nothing lo what had been suid by his abler friends, Messrs. Ben ton nnd Grundy. Mr Preston then rose and followed up the attack on this poor report with a speech of great ability and eloquence. Hodcuicd the jurisdiction of Congress over tho Slates in this mutter; and condemned the pro. ceeding ns an attempt at little else than issuing u commission of bankruptcy ngniiist mem, lie exposed vorv clenrly the deln menial cfl'ecls it must have on the interests of his own State of South Carolina pnrticu. larly ; und of nil ; and of the General Gov. eminent itself :--for ho reminded tho au thors thnt largo sums belonging to the Government, or for which it was trusted, were invested in these State stocks. He reprobated strongly the magnifying of the debtH of tho Slaies by l he committee -, nnd adduced several flagrant instances of tins mischievous exageratiou. M r Preston asked whul right they had to imagine that Hie Slates were coming lo nsk this boon ?--Who says lhat South Carolina is coming ? Who says that any Stale is soliciting your favors? What would ihey come lor:1 Whut hope would bring them to your ex hausted '1'reaeiiry ? Do they not know that every uccusution of imprudence, of prodigality, of culpable extravagance wilh which you have vituperated them, is iruo re6pccling yourselves? Are they coming to your iron chest for what they know is not there. He objected most strenuously to the Senato givjng any sanction to this report. Let il bo printed, nud it will in twenty-five iluys bo on every banker's tablo in London. Every broker there will forthwith try to hedge himself. It will be another violent blow against American credit, and bring down all our blocks in llio European market. Afior Mr Preston finished, there was t-omu conversation about striking out cer tain purls of tho report before printing it, and especially thai which staled the in debledness of Louisiana. I Mr King of Alabama then rose, nnd moved to recommit the report, with ins-truo ; Hour! to drilio nut the t-inlemeiiiH concern- . is ing the debts ol particular state , On linn proposition, Mr Webster look 1 the Hour: nnd, bv a speech of tiucominoii I force, gnvc a settler lo tin; report lor the present lit lenst. Ho nnd he wns certainly lor sending it back to the committee j and for keeping ii there; for in Ins opinion, it. was (ho must extraordinary document, ever put forth by wise and reflecting men. When he looked at tho t mie of its introduction the circum stances the absolute abscenco of any necessity for it, he could not but regard it as the most gratuitous, uucnlled lor, and nidi-creel paper he had ever seen in Ins life. Very many of thu States huvo henvy nmouiils in foreign mnrkets his own sinto, Mnssnehusotts had and shull the world be told bv this Senate, thnt the Legislature of Hint State has ovurburlhcucd itself with debt ? Sir, (continued Mr Webster) I renounco entirely anu nnsoiuieiy ine logisiaiiou oi these gentlemen, or ol" any body else, on this matter. I protest uguiiist their put ting arguments into the mouths of others, to use against the Stales of this Union their insinuations that there is danger of the States not fulfilling their obligations. It is admitted they am pay. Why then do "onllemun go out of their road lo say t hu cucu to llio lionlermg biotos. 1 he eili Slates will not do their duly. Whv lor of the "Cosmopolita," remarks, that touch their concerns nt nil? Who brought thesuexirnordinary powers might ultimate this subject here?

Whnt is the object of these swelling and inflammatory resolutions, urrnyed in gnudy and flimsy rhetoric, put forth, and support ed, and to bo quoted in every foreign couo. try? He could conceive of nothing more detrimental to the interests of tho Stales, and of the country Ho instanced tho caso of Louisiana, about which Hio committee had so signnllv blundered. What, ho asked, was there of justice or slatcsmanliUe conduct in iinigiii- lying and showing up the amount ol lis debt ? He was glad lo see that the major ily themselves had become alarmed at their own work in this instance. But why, if any thing ol this kind wns to be done, hnd not the committee put iheir inquiries to llio slate authorities ! Would Ihey hnve dared to do that? No: they know Ihe impropriety of it. Yel, if any thing was to be done on (he subject, lhat unquestion ably wns the proper met hud. Mr Webslcr delivered his remarks with great animation and earnestness of maimer; nnd he was listened to with deep attention. He concluded by suggesting to the commit, lee, thnt if they did inula: a report.it should be in five hues, and simply declare that the resolutions of the Senator of Missouri, hud no application lo any case before the Sen ate. After emtio conversation between ,Jlr Crittenden nud Mr Grundy, the question was tuken on the recommitment, and car ried in the nlfirmntivo without a division. Mr Cullioun did not open his hps on Hie subject, 1 ho aennto immediately ad. juurncd. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. New York, Jan. i!9.
