FROM WAS It I NO TON. Waxiiiwto.V! Jan. 20th. The discussion-up-m tho I'ttu-KMrTioN Bill earricJ tlio session of ther Senate far into tlio evening and it is true, I believe, that no Pre mptimi Dill ever passed that body by daylight. Mr. lIuNTtNMTOX, of Conn., came into the So. nato in tin morning with a half dozen amend, mont?, all of thoni carefully drawn and design, od to improve the Bill. The friends of the uica oure, who arc the stronger party in the Senate, consented to the adoption of two or three ofthcin, intended to prevent frauds and make the prill eiplesof the Bill consistent with the provisions. The member from Connecticut deserves well of his constituents and the country, for hit per severing efforts to impiovo the Bill. Tlio few amendments adopted will have the goodelllet of preventing fr.iuils, and coiil'miu the act, in a measure, to actual settlers. The debatable amendment of the day w as a proposition to limit the Act to two year. Some of the friends of the measure took tire at tins pro position, ntiil prepared the way both fora discus. ion in reference to the land question, and also for a controversy in reference to the condition of the Treasury, the opinions of tho candid itcs for the Presidency, successful and defeated, and for the consideration of all matters debatable growing out of the late political cmillict. There was a brilhant display of skill, wit, ami ingc nuily, between Mr. Clav, of Kentucky, and Mr. Buchanan, of Pennsylvania. Thrusts were made and parried in perfect good temper. The blows came thick and fast on both sides. Mr. Bu-'hanan was not cliitlicd in so strong and ar. mour as his antagonist, and suffered something in tho skirmish. The sparring was tho best conducted of the session, and ended as all such conflict" liou!el, in perfect good temper on tho part of both tho assailants, Mr. Buchanan, sen sitivc as ho is, even consented to be railed at a little for being an old bachelor, as unfortunately for himself and some fair lady lie is. Mr. Clay, of Alabama, took part in tho light, but ho is too eour and ill-natured in appearance, which ho can't help, and in his ideas, which he can, to make any difference nf opinion pleasing. There seems to he a desiro to discuss everything for partisan ofibct, am! the Senator seoms to think that to make a good speech it is liccessai-v to steep it with salt and vinegar. The end of the Pre emption Bill will como to-morrow in the Senate. In the IIouso it will have a brief etis tence, be laid upon the table, laid out and sent to the tomb of tlio Capulcts. Tho debate on this bill was contimiod until long after candle-light, there appearing a deter mined fooling-on tho part of its friends to sit it out, and a feeling almost as determined on the part of its opponents to rcsi.it its engrossment. The cession and distribution being alike defeat ed, tho question resolved itself on the pre emption principle, which was ultimately car ricd by a vote of HO to 17. There is little doubt it will be met in the morning with new objections and new motions to re-commit. Mr. Clay was more thm usually eloquent on the bcarhnr whirl, this bill might have on tho finances, as well as Its tendency to disturb the venerable land svs- tern which had worked well for tho last half century. Sf nll r -n , , , . . iii i. uuii, 01 j oiin., nas nau me nay to him self in the House, on tho Treasury Note Bill. With Mr. Evans and Mr. Barnard ho has paid his respects to the Secretary of the Treasury, who is deservedly harpooned by every man who caiiguia uiuw hi mm.

Mr. Buchanan, in some remarks in tlio henatc to-day, more than inti mated that such would bo the result. Tho L'Altnistad case did not como on in the Supreme Court to-day. Tho IGth of February ine louri nave nxetl upon lor the trial. It is ascertained tint Thomas II. Bonton is the author of the rabid articles in the Globe at taking General Harrison, Daniel Webster and Henry Clay.

INTERESTING DEUATK in thc SENATE. The Pr.n-n.MPTiov Bill hangs upon tha So nale, like consumption upon its marked victim. The engrossment which was ordered last even ing, was not followed by tho final passage to-day as was expected, though the dirkuess drove the Senators from tho Capitol before an adjourn ment. The motion to recommit the Bill to the Com mittee on Public Lands, with instructions to report in favor of distribution and pre-emption, was submitted by Mr. Chittenden of K'y. dur ingthe day, and defended in a brilliantand mas. terly speech, playful at times, sarcastic where the weapon of sarcasm could be well used, and at tunes again arg jinnntative. The principle of distribution was ably defended. Most interesting of all wcro the opinion of Mr. W ebster. Mr. W., to sum up hii Ideas which were suflicicntly coinprcscd, in the re marks inadototho Kenntr. il,.f..n.tn.l ,l. ..;..: pie of distr.buting tho proceed- from thu sales of lands, upon the cround of nnnitv in ii... ..,., ami justice to the general government. The distribution principle ho thought would be adopted at tho nc.U session of Congress, with a pre-emption principle attached to it, and pro. visions sufficiently guarding the interests of the new states. In icgard to the deficiency which would be I created by the Pre-emption Hill, ho proposed to meet it by a tax upon article.- of luxury, upon wines and sill:?. But independent of any such principle, ho would vote for distribution. Right and good in itself, he would vote for it. The principle, however, Mr. Webster re marked, he had regarded as a financial one, and the remedy he mentioned did away with all nc ccssity for bringing tho sales from land into the treasury. J he question was whether it was better to have tho sales from the public domain distributed, and a tax upon articles of luxury, or no tax upon articles mainly used by the affluent, and tlio proceeds from the sales of'lands put into the Treasury. rA?rl Wcbs,Br argued too, in reply to Mr. Wright, who stood upon the opposite ground, that the Government might rely upon tho cus. toms for tho ways and moans of support. The experience of the country, the payment of tho national debt, and other proofs are given of the correctness of the principle. I,li.,,a ".?!' I"0"'" "mi"1 in political economy, said Mr. V ebster, that when you raise a rove, nuo tax, you do not thereby of necessity decrease the amount of importation, nor does a vast duty proportionably increase tho price or diminish the amount of importation. Part falls upon the consumer, part upon the producer, and often a. iier upon mo producer, as in thu case of goods hero admitted from tho West Indies. Mr. Webster did not pursuo thc.-o topics at any great length, but stated them all suscinctly and with much clearness I believe, said he tiuucsot revenue sliouM bo laid upon articles of r;frZ" ""crcnco to the liiture, ho said a full bunaee listening with eagerness I be lieve inai notiiiug is necessary but cocdnore, calmness- and mildness ; and that with these, Noith and South, East and West, may be brought together and unite together scccess. iuuj in uiu support oi mcasiiies in regard to re VdlUO from duties and tho ilirtrilmti.in ,.r There was also a brief allusion to tho election of November, and the now Administration, in which Mr. Webster remarked, "I di not moan 10 noiu out any laise ideas of tlio country here, after, I only liopo that gentlemen will givo the new administration a fair trial, and suffer it to be fairly launched before they neck to destroy it. That which is to conic, it is well known, has not been tried. That which in mss-ini. mv-... has been tried, and has not given satisfaction,- nui uuuruvu me rnsam 01 prosperity to the wintry. I believo that he who has been called to be tho President of tho United State?, will act with as honorable and patriotic, a feeling, with as frank a temper, and with as high and manly a regard for tho public good as ever distinguished tho head of a Government. 1 believo that those who arc to occupy our places hero and in tlio other branch of Congress, will ho governed by me same great and good feelings, nicy wcro chosen under tho same feeling, and will unite with him in accomplishing tho same great meas ures of public policy. In regard to the Bill be fore the Senate, Mr. Webster said, "I wish thoso who aro now standing around our doors, fresher from tho People, had been left to act upon tho question before tho Senate. I had honed that this subject would havo been left to the next Congress, sinco by the next Congress it must bo discussed, mid every thing relating to our public domain. I have," said Mr. Webster, "been a friend of Pre-emptions, and were this Kill in tvticlem verliio, tho same as that which passed at tho last session, I would vote for it." Air. Wright briefly replied to Mr. Webster, and promised at some future dav to nrovc that the lands ought not to bo distributed among the States. "I will prove, in reply to the Senator from Mass," said Mr. Wriirht, "that tho General Government owes nothing to the Stages ; and if i can .irgiiu agaiim mm, i can uguuigi any man 111 tlio world." The debate was continued, but rather in roi tcrationof former opinions, than the advance mcntof any thing new. Tho Treasury Note Bill in the House, Mr. Thompson of S. C. made a sound and practical argument, proving somo permanent provision in tho revenue necessary, unless some permanent plan oi relict was agreed upon, (lis plan a tax upon wines ,ina suns. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. I1V THE COLUMIIIA. The steamer Columbia, which arrived at the wharf in East Boston early yesterday morning, brings later dates from Europe, by eleven days. A summary of the news she brings, published in an extra from this office, may be found on our lirst page. It is not of any very great importance. Wo have no later certain intelligence than that received by previous arrivals, from Canton. To the rumors relative to the capture of Pekin, we do not attach much credit. The particulars may bo found on the outside. The intelligence from Syria and Egypt, is more decisive and of more importance. In the particulars, given below, it will bo seen that Ad miral atoplord, by a refusal to ratily the treaty entered into with Mcheuiet Ali by Napier, near ly destroyed entirely all prospect of a peaceful adjustment of this atlair. Nothing but the ina bility of the Pasha to contend against the Allied Powers, could havo induced him to acquiesce in sucn severe terms as are now ottered to hum In England there' has nothing of importance occurred since our advicqs of the 20th ult. Throughout the country notes of preparation are sounding for the coming meeting of Parliament. Spain and Portugal are still in hostile position towards one another, but their differences will probably be adjusted even without the interven tion of England. From France, too( we arc without any intelli gence of importance. Tho Paris journals were indulging a notion that Russia may bo induced to enter into a separate alliance with France, against England and the other two Powers, par tics to the Quadruple Treaty of July, 18-10. For what purpose, beyond the now favorite French object of humbling England, is not sta ted. The only apparent ground, however, for supposing that Russia entertains such a project, is a deduction from the fact that some diplomatic notes, in a friendly tone, have passed between the Rusian Ambassador and M. Guizot. Similar notes, however, have been exchanged with tho other Powers; and they probably, one and all, mean nothing more than the usual professions of a disposition in the French Government to cul tivate the relations of peace. M. Thiers seems to have regained somo of his lost influence in the Chamber of Deputies. Rumors of changes in the Ministry continue. Many apprehend that M. Guizot will be obliged to succumb under tho assaults of the War party. A rumor that the Allied Powers had called upon France to account for hur proceeding with warlike preparations, has received partial con firmation. It is said that the Austrian Ambassa dor had verbally intimated to the French Gov. eminent, that their continued preparations for war had produced alarm in Germany, and that the increase of the French army, or even its maintenance at its present enormous amount, tended to keep alive in all countries anexpocta tion of war, which, with such a force on foot, rendered the occurrence of that calamity possi ble even from accidental collision. The Aus trian Ambassador expressed a belief that tlio French Government, when it should admit the correctness of his representations, would order such a diminution of the existing forces as would relievo tho Continental neighbors of France from those feelings of alarm. To these repre sentations the French Government replied, that no increase or extension of the force ordered or contemplated to bo raised by the late Adminis tration of France had yet taken place; but that the present .Ministry foil it as impossible as it would be dangerous for them to decline carrying out the measures of the Thiers Ministry in'that respect. The London Times of the 5th, our latest date, contains a moderate review of Gallatin's work on the North Eastern JJoundary question. According to a letter from Malta, dated De cember 17th, the accounts from Egypt represent the Pasha to bo adapting himself to the change in his affairs, and directing his attention to the arts of peace. "He has issued contracts for coals for his steamers, furnaces, and factories. His carriage occupies his thoughts, as indeed it has always done for years past. lie is anxious to keep the currency up to tho standard former ly established, namely, a silver dollar of the full intrinsic valuo of the Austrian dollar, and the piastre to be the twentieth part of this dollar. Measures for opening the trado are under dis cussion. Pasha, no doubt, intends to open the trade ; but his Minister will take care that his Highncss's interests aro well protected in the sale of tho produce of his Hiuhness'a own ns. tates. t suiiiumiuu is saiu 10 oo lormpi nt merchants to advise on the steps to bo taken Of rnillhl.

Tho Brittania and Howe arrived yesterday." A fearful tempest has lately swept over the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmora, and incalcu lable damage has been done. The Russian btuamcr from Odessa to Constantinople was wrecked an the coast of Khili. The engine bo came injured during the storm; and the vessel, uu uiigur ouuymg per neim, was thrown on the rocks, and nineteen men and ed; the captain, however, was saved. The Trebisonde steamer had six hundred men on ooaru; uvo oi wnom were swept away by a wave ; three others have cone ravinir mad rm irigni aim coin, anu were obliged to be lashed to the masts; twenty more, who were taken at Constantinople, have their limbs completely 111,. .1 - MF- T x i ion, rtirauisi mo me oi ixjuis I'liiiunno are again spoken of.

PORTUGAL AND SPAIN. The threatening of hostilities between Spain and roriugai were not ended atllielalcst occounn. Por tugal is arming as actively as if war was already de clnred. Even the stuileutnin the military s-.hoolshad been called out to assist in defending the country from invasion by the bpamards. The mediation of Eng land will not, however, it h thought, b necessary to prt wrve peace, if the Regents allow tho Corle time to deliberate.

The Diiko of Terccira is appointed, by a carta regis in the Diario, commander of the army of observation, and particularly charged with the de fence of the northern province. SYRIA, EGYPT, AND TURKEY. The amicable adjustment of the Egyptian question would seem, by the intelligence brought by tho Co lombia, to have been in no slight degree jeopardized by the refusal of Admiral Stopford to ratify tho com pact of Napier. It was littlo expected that tho convention would be disavowed by the Power whose officer, it had been imagined, was fully accredited to negotiate. Dut this unexpected thing has come to pass : and the whole question, apparently so well arranged, was in danger of being completely rc-opened j but (iicAi'y, it will be thought the Pacha is so depressed by his misfor tunes in war, that ho will submit to any conditions that leave him not altogether stripped of authority in Egypt. The terms offered by Admiral Stopford, and accepted, aro the hardest that could have been impo sed on him without cnfn.ciiig ihcdccAcancf, vvhi- h the Four Powers admitted it was not their in'ention to effect. Altogether, the mcnagemcnt of Dritish agents in the vanl coincsoutin very equivocal colors. Before diplomatic mystification has puzzled this part of the case past understanding, let us recapitulate the leading facts, and place them on our file for future use. On the 2i1th of November, Commodore Napier con chilled a convention with the Pasha, in virtue of which the latter became bound to recall Ibrahim Pasha from Syria, and to "restore the Ottoman fleet as soon as ho shall have received the official notification that the .Sublime Porte grants to him tho htrttlilary govern ment of Egyp'." The Pasha was inclined to accept these terms, in consequence of Commodore Napier's havirg transmitted to him a copy of a letter from Lord Pali.ierston to Lord Ponsonby, dated London, the 15th October. This despatch states, that "it would be expedient that the representatives of the Four Powers at Constantinople should be instructed to pro ceed to the Turkish Minister," and tell him, that upon the Pasha s complying Willi certain terms, "the Sultan should not only reinstate Mehcmct Ali as Pasha of Egypt, but should also give him an hereditary tenure in that Pathalie." Onihc2dof December, Admiral Stopford wrote to the Pasha "I am sorry to find that Commodore Napier should have entered into a con vention with your Highness for the cvacuition of Syria by the Egyptian troops, which ho had no au thority to do, and which I cannot opprove of or ra tify." The Admiral adds "I hope this hasty and unauthorized convention will not occasion any cm barrafinent to your Highness. It was no dout t done from an amicable intention, although under a limited rifif of the state of affairs in Syria; but it will not lessen my earnest desire most readily to udopt any measure which may tend to a renewal of that amity and good feeling which I trust will hereafter subsist between England and your Highness j the terms of irilci, am happy to say, are neif in a state of progress with the Allied I'owers." On the fith of December, the Admiral transmitted to the Pasha "the official authority from the British Government, in the namo of the Four Powers, to maintain your Highness in the Pashalic of Egypt, upon the conditions that in three days after the com munication made to you by Captain Fahshawe, you agree to restore tha Turkish fleet to the Sultan, and evacuate Syria." The "authority1' is a letter from Lord Palmcrston to the Lords of the Admiialty, bear ing that the representatives of tho Four Powers in London have decided that their intentions shall bo made known to Muhemet Ali by the Admiral com manding in the Mediterranean ;" and their intentions are, that upon the evacuation of Syria and the resto ration of the Ottoman fleet, "the Four Powers will tecommeud to the Sultan to establish Mchemet Ah in the Pashalic of Egypt." Wo infer from the tenor of LordPalmerston's letter to th-j Lords of iho Admiralty, that prcviouily to the receipt of it, not only Commodore Napier had no au thority to enter into a convention with the Pasha, but the ltritish Admiral was equally unauthorized to take such a ilep. The English papers animadvert, with much seve nty, upon the Public faith that has been displaped by their Government towards the Pasha of Egypt. Th; London Spectator says : The nlatn Eualish of these oroeecdinrrs is this! tho llriti-h Government orders its naval commander to blaze away do as much miseheifas he can in Syria and Egypt and while ho is thus engaged, they set about discussing what all this is for. Hostile oper ations were commenced in the beginning of September, and in the middle of October the Allies were not yet agreed amongst thcmsilvcs what it was they proposed to accompii-ii ny inese iiosiiuucs. lly the convention of the 15th of July, the Dritish Government llioualuiuclfwarrented to lead Mehcmct Ali to expect the hereditary Pashalic of Egept: on the 1 tthof November, it discovered that it could not offer him the Pashalic for lifo. TheHntish Government upon which has devolved almost exclusively the toil and expense of the opciationsin the Levant has been degraded into the blind tool of Rossi,-, Austria, and Prussia i it docs tin ir biddinc scrnnsi its own wislus. This is not all. The legal maxim is "qui facit per ol luni licit per so" the principle is bound by the acts of his am ut. Mtheinct Ali is entitled to hold Com modore Napier lo be an accreditatc-d agent of England A naval commander with six sail of the line and three strainers, who hid just battered down Acre, appears Delore -lcxanilna, nnd threatens to repeat the oper ation there unless the terms lie ofllro are accepted. The MtrnintrChronirle of Tuesday savs truly "We cannot of course pretend to know-what may have been Commodore Nopicr's instructions : but we presume the Admiral end not send 6i.x sail of the line and three steamers to Alexandria to repeat his own exibition of .uqusi lasc. i-or vvnnt purpose were tney sent I It seems to us the liciidit offollv to have Bent the Commodore's squadron to Alexandria, unless with power to negociate, it has been decided, tee belire, by erenhightr authority than Admiral Stopford, that the rommodorehas negotiated suciesfully" . 1IU lliiUUUIlUII vim, IU1IIIU ill lllll IJUUI I terms offered by Nanier seems to have I ten intimated to the Paslia. "It has alrcodv coi . nu iiiiiuutiiiuii vijiti luiuiu ill lllll IJUUfieisui UIC :n previously come lo our knowledge," says Iloghos lley in his letter to Napier oi jei .November, "inal it was tho intention or the hour rowers to leave Ins Highness the government or F.gypt." Mehi'inct Alidad every reason tob.;live that NapiiTwus the accredited scent of Knuland : he acted upon that belief sand if hebe allowed to suffer injury from acting upon that belief, the stain upon the honor of England will beindthble. The Pasha is entitled to say, nut lor my commence in Hie honor of Kngland, I would have gone on with my preparations for defen ding Egypt i trusting to that honor, I suspended them alter signing the convention, the diravowal of the convention by England takes me by surprise : I im not pripared to resist, and must accept of terms which otherwitc I wouldhave rejected. In ihort. the British. Government has played stalking.horte to divert the Pasha's attention while the Allies were taking deadly aim at him. From tho New York Express. "The Campbells are coming" and as coining events cast their shadows before" wo com mend the letter which follows to our anxious readers. We confess our appnibatinn of tho idea shadowed forth by the Major, of putting things as Iheyirere before the Goths and Vandals overrun the land. Most estimable men most estimable institutions were "run ofl the track" and if after examination they are found worthy, we say restore them to position the counter revolution we have experienced fully indicates a desire to return to what wo wcro when pros pent y smiled on industry. "Tho old guard" should not be overlooked, though the fog of modern day and party strife may havo over- shadowed them. On our way to Washington. To the Kditnrs of the New York Express : Wo aro coming slowly but surely for as the Gincral has got a good many old friends and stopping places on the way, and wants to look about him and sec as much of tho country as ho can before the 1th March next, he thought it best tortart early and nnkras much of a circmnbcn dibits as possible. I do raly believe if the Gin cral had let folks have their way, lie wouldn't "touch bottom" from tho time of leaving the Cabin till ho got to tho White House but he would rathor go afoot any day than pass through all the hurrawing that is set up all along the road it beato the "grand tower" all hollow (or there aint a living crittur who dont yell out most awful and swing his hat round as soon as ho sees the Gincral ; and I expect it will come prilty tuft on me before wo git to the end on't, for it aint possible for one man to do all the bowing and shaking hands that is required.

"Well," says I, "Mister, it seems to ino that what you call aristocratic comes nigh to democratic Now," says I, "if that Bank had stuck to 'the aristocracy' and lent money only to the rich folks, it would now havo no bad debts to collect." '-O well," says he,"poor folks never ought to borrow money, they ought to got along without it." "Well," says I, "that is a notion I never thought on afore, for when I was in the last Government along with Gincral Jackson, all our democratic friends used to pester the Gincral and me all tho while to make the United States Bank to shell out to poor folks, and wo took the deposits away from it because the complaint was that Squire Biddle and the Bank was too aristocratic and didn't give poor folks a chance to borrow money to carry on their trade with. 'Now,' says I, "how do you make that square with vour present notions. 'Why, the fact is," says he, "it is pretty rufl worK to make the notions ol one time to fit the notion of another time : but I do sav it never will do to have another such a Bank, for it is pretty nigh all owned by foreign aristocracts, and that never will do in a democratic country it is downright awful ; and Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Benton, and all the good democrats in Congress say it will bo the ruin of the country." "Well, now," says I, "if that don't beat Solo tnon ! How long do you think it would take for- cigners to destroy this country, by putting their money m the big Hank and Jet Square Riddle loan it out to tho poor democracy, who you say will never pay it back apain !" This set him to scratching his head a little, and not liking that tune ho changed it and said, "But it aint right to loan foreigners' money in that way, it aint treating on 'em well and it destroys their confi dence in us." "Well, well," says I, "wn best look a little into that matter, and sec that things aint made worse than they need be. We have pritty much all on us been struggling under and through a heavy storm, and he who has saved any thing may think himself pritty well off. A ship may be good for something, tho' she has lost a few sails. I have seen the "Two Pollies" in mydaystript pretty nioh clean, but Cantain Jumper, with a leetle assistance from the other ovvners, would rig her up and Bite would go off agin as buck as ever, i nave seen corn-ncuu and cotton-fields all sent to smash in one squall of wind and hail, but folks would "o to work agin and the next season they would have better luck. It aint wise nor righteous." says I, "for folks to turn to croaking, and when tunes are bad, turn to and sell off and quit, that is just the time to hang on and cheer up, and oft" coat and go at it and put things to rights forgood weather and lair wind." "There is ono thing," says I, that is pretty certain in money matters, what may be loaned or spent in the country is not wasted or Io-t ; it is somewhere about, and folks don't eat it or drink it, its only going the rounds. A few years ago the Treasury was so full it couldn't hold it and now its all out. 'Uncle Sam' haint got a dollar in his pocket and is in debt too, but who says he is broke ! he has got plenty of property but if ho was to throw up and tell ofFhis nroner- ly intnesc times it woman t bring enuff to pay oho year's expenses he is at. And so it is with most kinds o' property, very few who have have much and owe anylhinz but would como in these times it wouldn't bring enuff to pay out tho luetic end'of the horn by selling oftatid giving up.

K. S. M. II. i r FRIDAY M ORNIN G, J A N U AR Y 29, 1841 TIIK PURLIC LANDS. ine legislature ot rsortli Carolina, has pas sed resolutions in favor of distributing tho pro- cees of the sales of the public lands amongst the States. It is the duty of every Legislature to urge upon Congress this important measure. It must be done speedily, if ever. It must bo done by tho next Congress', or it may never be done. llie time is fast coming, when the States which ceded these lands to the Union fora specific pur pose the benefit of the whole will be outnum bered by those which are already seeking to ap- propriate them to their own seprato benefit. After the next apportionment, it mav bo too late. Surely if there bo any question upon which men should break through the trammels of party, and act for their country, and their whole conntry, it is this. One thing is certain: tho lands cannot remain in their present situation. Kither thev will be divided amongst all the States, or they will he ceded to tho States in which they are situated Heeded to tho new States, no matter on what terms, it will amount to an actual gift, for tho gov. eminent will bo unable to enforce the terms of the contract, whenever tho States may choose to violate them. Once out of the custody of tho general government, the public lands, the coin mon inheritance of tlio whole country, are gone forever. Amongst tho legacies which the present ad ministration will leave to that of General Har- risonis a considerable debt, in due bills, issued tolabores upon public works, and made payable after the fourth of March. Theso due bills have been issued without any authority of law and no provision has been made for their payment They have in most instrnccs passed out of tho hands of tho original recipients at a consider able discount. An inquiry will doubtless be instituted into the manner and extent of this new mode of conducting the finances. It is quite out of the question to determine the whole amount of the Ian Buren national debt, but there can be little hazard in asserting that it is equal to a years revenue. it ought to bo lunucit and designated as tho Sub Treasury debt, that the p oplcmayseo plainly the condition in which Van Duron leaves the Treasury that ho found overflowing. A REVISION OF THE TARIFF. Mr. Woodbury, not tho happiest man in thowoilil for condensing his thoughts, has submitted to the Senate a plan for u revision of tho Tnriff, which is printed by order of Congress. Mr. Woodbury lays down ns a starting point, that the Compromise Dill in its essential provisions, must bo adhered to. lie considers it n quasi contract, and reasons nt length, what must not bo elotiu under it It being, however, chiefly of importance to understand what tho Secretary's plan is, wo pass over nil that to como to his suggestions, adding on his deductions from the principles involved in tho Compromise, ri: ; "That the present larilTlaws should bo as littlo disturbed by any revision as possible, consistent with tho public wants, and nil ad herence to sound principles; mat changes should bo inado chiolly, if not solely, for tho purposes of roveiuio j that these changes when raising theduty, when operating before! or after July 1 M'2, should its n general rule be confined to articles not paying n duty us high ns t cnty per cent ; that except in ex. rcnic cases it should never raise tticm ubovo that rate ; ami, lastly, that the oxisliiiir pro visions for tlio payment of duties in cnsli, and tlio assessment of them on tlio valuo of the merchandise nt tlio port of entry after 1842, aro too important to lie disregarded."

ELECTION OF MK. HIVES. After it two yoars struggle in tho Ancient Dominion, tlio Legislature lias at length succeeded in choosing a Senator of the Uni ted States, tlio placo having been vacant over since the expiration of Mr. Hives' term in March, 183S. The difficulty in thu cusu has arisen, in tho two legislatures preceding tho present, from tlio obstinacy of u few im practicable Whigs, who woro adverse, under 1 any circumstances, to the election of Mr. Hives. Ilcnrc tho statu has been lor nearly two years only half represented in tho na tional Senate. In each of the three legisla tures, (including the present) there bus been a small Whig and Conservative majority. Tho Conservatives, believing that Mr. Hives was entitled to a re-election, would listen to tho name of no other candidate; and such has been the patriotic courso of Mr. Hives since ho separated from tlio Administration, that a largo majority of tho Whig members woro decidedly in his favor, llut there wcro yet impracticable Whigs enough to prevent an election. At tho opening of tho present session, a fresh difficulty was started, which has deferred thu election for nenily two months. The Whigs have a majority in the legislature ; but inasmuch ns the state bad been carried for Van Huron, chiefly by the manufacture of a few hundred spurious votss in Shenandoah and some other largo interior counties, it has been held that tin: legislature was bound to return a Van Buron Senator. And every effort that Van Btiten ingenuity could devise, and every obstacle that the most dogged obstinacy could cast in the way havo been resorted to, for the purpose of de- fcating tlio candidate of the people. But the, , , , , , , , . ! battle has been lotlglit, and the victory won. j Mr. Hives was elected on tlio IStli hist, by ! a majority oi six votes. Mr. Rives it will bo recollected, belonged to the majority who mutilated lho records of tlio Senate with black lines. But of this ho has repented ; and the Baltimore Patriot says mat Ins first act on returning to tho henato will bn to move a rccindc of the resolution. expunging FROM CINCINNATI. Civcts-sAKi.
