The Parliamentary election was in fiill pro gress and occupied the general attention. Sore than half the member were already re turned. The morning Chronicle gives a list of 175 Reformers and liW Tories chosen, 'lie Chronicle acknowledges a loss of 37 members to the Liberal party and claims a gain of 31, miking a net loss of six to the Liberal party. The Chronicle gives the following comparative list of loss and gain. Liberals 31. Tories 37. Host of the remaining elections, embrac ing a large portion of the counties, were to take place from the otli to the l'Jth. Some of the results on both sides wcro quite unexpected. In the city of London, whore there wcro eight candidates, the struggle was a very equal one, and the result uncertain to the last. At y o'clock on Juno 3(1, the official declaration was made, which was in favor of two on the conservative, and two on the liberal ticket. Tlic successful candidates were Lord John Rus sell nnd Sir Matthew Wood, liberals, who had O'JJl, and 031.') votes respectively, and J. -ITas-terman and fJ. Lyall, conservatives, who had (i:)30, andCyyt). Lord John Russell stood low est of the successful candidates, and Mr. Att rood, a conservative, came witliin !) votes of him, and it was said the election would be con tested, and that illegal votes enough would be proved to give the seat to Mr. AtlwooJ. In Westminister, where Mr. Leader and General Evans were the liberal candidates, Mr. lions, the only conservative candidate, succeed ed byiWsfl vote, and Mr. Leader by 3'J71, Gen oral Evans having 3y i(i, and losing the election by yfi votes. 7'iicre were many cases of pret ty close elections. There had been some serious riots at the elections, though for the most part they appear to have been comparatively orderly. Thero was 8 riot at Liverpool in which three incn and one woman were killed. In Liverpool the Conser vative ticket prevailed by a large majority viz. Lord Sandon 0979 votes, Mr. Cresswcll 0793. The liberal candidates were Sir Joshua It al tncslcy, who had 1047 votes, and Lord Palmers ton. a leading member of the Cabinet, ! 11)1. The news by the overland mail from India was received in London July 1, by express from -Marseilles. As wo anticipated, it embraces nothing af a later date from China. The latest Canton date is to March 30. Some few addi tional particulars relative to the state of trade ore given, which will bo found among our ex tracts. The news from India is not important. The Hritish Government brig Larno was at Bombay, awaiting the arrival of the new Admir al from the Cape of Good Hope, who had not yet mado his appearance. Preparations were making to send KiOO troops from Calcutta to Canton, and additional troops from Mardrns. Tim news from Turkey and Egypt is of more interest. The mot important particulars will bo found in the subjoined extracts. The Chamber of Deputies of the Spanish Curies had declared the guardianship of the Queen to be vacant by a vote of 129 to 1, and the committee of the Senate had reported to the samp effect by a vote of 3 to y.

The sesion of Parliament was prorogued by the Queen in person by a speech from the throne. In the House of Lords, Tuesday, Juno 22, the polit ical circumstances connected w ith the prorogation lind their effect m bringing together an immense ossein- blagi-. From the moment that the Roval Carriage piM-ed through the gates of Buckingham' Palace until its arrival at the House of Lords, the enthusiasm of uii' immense multitude that crowded every spot from which a glimpse of the nrocession rouhl bn had. una unabated. Within thnllmise of Lords the assemblage of pec res es and strangers was evi u greater than upon iiu-iii.Lii-i.1,1 ui uiu opening oi tne nisi parliament un der the present reign. Tho body of the house, the gnllrri, the staircases, the very doorways, wire crowded. There were a considerable number of peers present. The Duke of Sussex entered the House about a quarter before two, and looked in excellent health and spirits, lie was followed, somo minute, nficrwnrds, by llio Duke of Cambridge and I'rinee. (ioorge, and, until the guns announced Her Majesty's arrival, both of the Knyal Dukes were engaged m an- mi.ue.ij i mi, i t sii i ion witii mo rcers arounii them. Lords Melbourne and Normandny were cnrlv in their attendance, as was tho venerable Lord Hollo. The curiosity of strangcts wan mortified by tho absence of the Duke of Wellington, Lord llroiigham.

"On a full consideration of tho present stalo of public allairs, I bavo como to llio determination of proroguing parliament, with a view to its immediate dissolution. "The paramount importance) of the trado and In dustry of tho country, and my anxiety that the exi gencies of tho public services should bo provided for in the manner least burdensome to the community, have induced me to retort to the means which tho constitution has entrusted to me, of ascertaining tho sense of my people upon matters which so deeply con cern their welltirc. "1 entertain tho hope that the progress of public business may bo facilitated, and that divisions injuri ous to the course of steady policy nnd useful legisla tion may be removed by the authority of a new par liament, which I shall diiect to bo summoned with out delay. "(enllemen of the House of Commons, "I thank you for tho reaelincss with which you have voted tho sums necessary for tho civil and military establishments. "My Lords and Gentlemen, "In tho exercise of my preiogativc, I can have no other object than that of securing the rights and pro moling the interests of my subjects) and I rely on the co-opcralion of my parliament, nnd the loyal zeal of my people, for support in the adoption of such meas ures ns nro necessary to maintain that high station among tho nations of the world, which it hns pleasod Divine Providenco In assign lo this country." As soon as her Majesty bad concluded, The lord Chancellor said: It is her Majesty's royal will and pleasure that this parliament be prorogued to Tuesday, the 20th of June instant, to lie then here holden, and this parliament is accordingly prorogued till Tuesday, the 2!)lh of June. Her Majesty nnd her attendants then quitted the hoiio in the samo order ns they had enteral it and the royal Droccssion returned to rfurkineliam.nal.icc amid the same warm demonstrations of loyal attach ment. THE OLD HOBBY AGAIN. In the proccedincs of Cant.

Obliquity, mental or moral. or visions of tlm Presidential chair in the (we fancy vast) dis tance, or perhaps a seat in Congress, or at least i lie i resiliency oi a great military establishment gilded with patronage, stato or national must have entirely blinded the gallant captain ; else ho would nut, surely, endorse falsehoods ho glaring as thoso contained in the first resolution. ermont alreadvembrasfcd with a two biindrnl thousand dollar debt, and a debt rapidly in creasing, by reason of the annual expenses ex ceeding the annual income ! Is Vermont indeed bankrupt, and persisting in bankruntc.v : and ! this the story logo out to the world ! No, Cap- lain; n is not so. lour fancied debt is at the most much less than what you state it at ; and the debt itself is one which the riirht hand nnrl.-. et of Vermont owes to the left hand pocket. It i ue;ut wiiii-ii can ue canrcilcil in live minute.--, if the iicople say so, and without paving a cent beyond the debentures of the House 'and Senate for this short space of time. Wo suppose every body undcrstandtfUhis ; and now as to the annual receipts and expenses. I,ast year we demon, strated that, for tho eight or nine years previous, the annual ordinary receipts had more than paid the annual ordinary expenses. The report, however, for tho year ending 30th Sept. latt, does show a deficit ; and tin tiiiH deficit of a cin gle year, arising from unusual c.peuses, is probably founded the general and sweeping, and therefore false, assertion that the "annual ox pensejs exceed by several thousand elollars the oidinary revenue of the state." I;t us take the last fiscal year. Exclusive of payments for money borrowed, and in- terest thereon, the expenses wcro a3,tlG 52 Exclusive1 uf money borrowed, nnd tho balance in the treasurv at the linciniiin?. nnd the balance owing nt the end of tho yenr, the receipts wcro fiO,2G7 13 Leaving a deficit of 611,119 31 If wo were to slop hero and take this as a sample of the annual financial transactions of ermont, wo would indeed consider it as a mat tor not only for "regret," hut alarm, ltut the truth is, this is nnta fair sample. In the expenses oi mat year were llie lollowing items id a pure ly extraordinary character : Debentures of the Legislature operand above tho sessions oi ordinary lengtli, (tins ic-ion was nearly six weuks in length, llio statutes having bern reus ed,) 87,'00 00 Insane Hospital, 2,IKJ0 on Paid to committeo to revise tho statutes, 3,500 00 Troops on northern frontier, 1,450 01 Making 611,150 01 Here, then, is an amount of t.urelv cxtraordi nary expenses more than equal to the large de ficit. We have still two items more : one is the extraordinary increase of court orders, beiiw Squill over the preceding year; and the other is tho item of Ki9'J -11 paid for the Captain's hobbies military drills, &c. Ace. Admitting, however, that these items may continue to press thus heavily on the treasury, we have not dr- auctcu tiiom ; ami yet we plainly show that tho pcopie aro saio Dcyoiiu tne necessity of increa: ed taxation, and that without resortinr to the ample means which 13lhe whigs mean, in spito oi locoiucoism, to put in possession ol me state : we iiieiau mai snare oi tne vumic lands winch ueiongs to ner. c beg now to ask, what nlan is nronoscd to cancel the account between the Treasury anel the Schueil Fund alias "tlic state elebt!" The second resolution speaks of "the mostcliicicut and " least oppressive measures. But what are these ? Here a tct of elisapponted politicians men, who were recently su'.taining the most cxtrvagant and corrupt administration over in power, and are now opposing the new adminis tration which is pledged to economy and reform raise aloft a banner and call upon the neonlo to rally against tho state debt. Tobe sure it is a glorious thing, tins wiping off old scores and starting iresn ami anovu noanl : but now do these reformers propose to do it 1 Not a hint even, is Given : no plan is proposed : thev aro committed to nothing ; and really wo uclicvo they moan to an notiung, save to eaten as many votes as they can for Nathan Suiilic. We ask again : what does Capt Partridge mean to do 3 Is it to oppress tho people with taxation ! That was the locofoco plan in 163!). If that is now their plan, let them umnasK, and put tne issue to tho people. Wo will only add that, with the usual incon. sistency which marks locofocoism, theso stout sticlilcrs lor settling mo state debt, say not a word in faior of having the stale recen t some 830,000 a year which is her own.

We would not forbear to cxnrosa tho prido and nlcaturo wo feel at tho nobln mnrsn which the Whigs in the House of Representatives of yongross are now pursuing, With a few un important exceptions, they have rallied round the standard of their Country, and evinced a fearless and highly commcndablo determination to carry into imtnudiato and full execution all those great measures which aro so anxiously desired by the People. 7'ho Bill for the Distribution of the Proceeds of the Public Lands stood first on the list of the leading whig measures. After full disctieion and mature deliberation, that hilt was passed by a strictly Whig vote, not a singlo Iico Foco vote being given in its favor. It is strictly and en tirely, a Whig measure and one of so much importance to the country, that its passago alone would, in our jtielgment, have fully justified the trouble and expense of an extra session of Con gress. The next important measure, which attracted the attention of the House, was tho bill making provision for alioantopay up the arrearages, and make good tho deficiencies, of tho last "ad ministration. After years of wanton and waste ful oxtravgancc, that profligate and unprincipled party shrunk away from tho withering power of popular condemnation, into their original ob scurity, leaving the financial aflaira of the gov ernment in a state of disorder and embarrasmcnt so far as regards the past, and without tho least preparation or provision for tho future. To re mcdy such a disastcrous position of afiairs, alto gether unprecedented in the history of our country, and to rodoem tho national honor, it be came necessary to create a funded debt of twelve millions of dollars, which measure was initiated and carried through the House of Rep resentatives by a handsome Whig majority, not a single Loco Foco voting for the bill. 77i, tun, is a 'hig measure. The miserable, shifting, shutlling Treasury Note system, which by the way, was but a fair samplo of Loco Foco legis lation, has been indignantly abandoned. Tho tarnished faith of the government has been re deemed in the only fair and honorable way, by the creation of a permanent loan to meet its just debts. The Tory presses, with their charac teristic impudence, are attempting to fix tho charge of creating a Public Debt upon the Whijr Party but it wont do the whole mat ter is too plain, and too clear tho People see where the blame lies, and have already wreaked their vengeance upon tho perpetrators. Followinir in tho train of the Loan Bill, come three oilier important measures which were acted upon in the House, on Tuesday last. The bill making provision for Pauper Lunatics in the District of Columbia was passed. The bill to pro vide for the payment of the Navy Pensions was taken up, discussod, and passed. The bill mak ing provision for the purchase of Naval Ord nance and Ordnance Store was taken up in Com mittee of tho Whole, discussed, and reportctl to the House. ''his highly praiseworthy despatch of the public business gives the country assurance that tho popular expectation will not bo disanpointcd, and that the high hopes which have been enter tained of the adoption of measures of relief, at this extra session of C'onnress.will befullv rca it- ed. Thre other important measures vet remain for the action of tlm House : the passage of a uniform system oRankrtiptcy tho repeal of the Sub-Treasury, and the establishment of a B ink. Wo hope and trust thafall theso trreat measures will be perfected, before tho close of tho present session, in a manner satisfactory to the great majority of the people. I f this should he ione,tiio present session of Uongrcss will be the most important one ever held the callant band of Whig members, who have so nobly adhered to mo union oi me parly, and tuo good ot the country, will be deserving of all praise ; bless ings will be showered upon their heads by a re lieved and grateful people. Wc are yet full in the belief that a National Bank will bo chartered, at the present session of Congress. The Loco Focos, in both branch es, oppose it in a body which wc hope they will continue to do tho measure, if carried, wil bo, and ought to be, a Whig measure. 7'he constitutional scruples of some of our Southern mends surround tlic subject wall many diuicul- tiphilt wo trust tl.oe-rt .llir.o..!,; - ... forniidable hn lo bo insurmountable. We should certainly desire, according to our personal pre. lerences, mat a sound, t-trong uatiK, sumcicni ly truarded, tobe sure with checks and restraints but of capacity and vigor enough to rcmetly existing tuiancial evils should tie csiauiislicd i... .i.7. : n if ...:.. u illM l UUHL pt.ffaiuil in iuuiurs. ti iie;s.iou- )y such an one as we desire cannot tic obtained, we could yield something to the spirit of com promise end conciliation wo would yield much vt ry much, to the Union ot tlie wing party.

Sir. 'Such a bill, it is stated, would secure a majority in tho Senate, tmd meet the views of the Presfilcnt. Wo earnestly hope that the wisdom of the cnliirhtcned men. who aro man aging the public att'airs at Washington, will sug gust somo plan for a Bank which will commend itself (o the approbation of the People, and se cure the ascendency and the union of the lugs.

Our readers will probably roccolloct that when Congress fust assembled tho Loco Focos interposed every obstacle which their ingenuity could invent to the organization of tholoworllouso. Uy their factious oppo sition, they succeeded in prevonling tho Whigs from adopting any rules until nearly throe weeks after tho commencement of the Session. A few southern, impracticable, anti tariff milliners, liko Wiso nnd Mallary, uniting with tljo great mass of tho Loco foco party, dotcrmincd that the Houso should not proceed to business without adopting the odious 21st rule, which, in clTect, denies to the people ono of the most important rights secured to them by tho constitution tho right of petition namoly. And, although the fault was to bo imputed solely to tho factious op position of the Tories, yet the Locofoco par ty from Maine to Florida, raised ono fierce, frantic howl, charging all the delay upon the Administration, nnd denouncing thn Whigs for wasting tho time and squandering the money of the people in fruitless and idlo de bate. But mark the sequel. Tho Whigs.by harmony, compromise and firmness, finally succeeded in organizing the Houso, without adopting tho 21j ruc. Tho House being organized, wo indulged a

hope that tho fury of the opposition would cease. But no. Gathering strength from disappointment and rendered frantic by the union or tho W lugs, it raged with ten fold groater fury than before. Evory measure, proposed by tho Administration members for ihercliofofthel'cople.cncounterod the fier cest opposition of the Tories. Hour after hour, day after day, and week after week wcro spent by the Locos in idle and windv declamation. Meantime tho Torv natmr. from one end of the union to tho othcr.char- gcd all the fault npon tho administration "Behold," said thoy.tho fruits ofwhitr ascen dency ! Four weoks consumed at the expense ot the rcoplo, by a reform administration, in an extra session of Congress, without adop ting a singlo mcasuro for the relief of the country !" Thus Toryism, in doleful tones howled out its lamentations. With a patri otic solicitude for tho dear pcopie, whole reams of paper and oceans of ink wcro gen erously expendod in recording thoir indigna tion. JJut now lo ! how changed their tune! A Whig member, disgusted tt the factious conduct of the opposition and bored almost to death hy the frothy and long winded ora tions of Pickens, Rhctt & co. rises in his place and proposes a rule by which no mem ber of the Houso shall be permitted to speak more than one hour at a timo on any one subjoct. The rulo, though opposod, of course by every Tory in tho House, is promptly adopted hy tho Whigs. Under this rulo the Administration party has been able to ad vance with it firm and steady step in the pro- O1""- l.-S. tu-luvM. Tim l.nt.l Itill lias been carried through, the loan Bill has pas-scd-evcry Loco foco voting against it altho' it was rendered indcspensahlo to pay a debt contracted by themselves and the Navy pension Bill has also been adopted. Rendered desperate by the successful op eration ol the one hour rulo, hy means of which the Whigs have been enabled to car ry through the House their favorite meas ures, the Tories havo changed their song. riioy now sound the bugle of their party on a different key. The battcrios of their wrath, which had been before discharged upon the Whigs for the reluctant and tardy paco with which they wcro proceeding with the business of tlicscssion, arc now opened upon them with grape ami canister, for the hur ried gait and hot haste witii which they are advancing. They denounce the rule as nn abridgement of tho freedom of spcccli ! nn odious gag law ! ! and thus it will bo seen that whatever course the Administration par ty adopt or however they proceed with the business of the session they are sure to en counter the fiercest opposition of tho Tory faction. AnA this wo havo all along expec ted and arc prepared to meet them. But notwithstanding all the blustering of the Torv papers about the one hour rule wc have not yet seon a man of sense among their party who does not regard it as a useful, wise, re publican measure, admirably calculated to confine members to tho subject matter be fore them, and to prevent those coarso per sonalities in which they have heretofore so largely indulged. ii . , r i. . .. near witai tuc mauisonian savs on the subject.

Wo sincerely hope that tho announ cement of this important fact at Washington will not have tho eiTett to endanger any of the great measures which the Whig party aro now so successfully bringing to ma turity. We earnrstly entreat Mr. Clay and Mr. Webster not to bo frightened out of their wits oven by this alarming symptom thii rtr omen. True, Mr. Chauncoy L. Knapp is a great man, a very great man. But nevertheless wc humbly hope the Whig party will ho able to survive the disappoint ment resulting from tho loss of a luminary which, for tho last few years, lias shono with such a dazzling radianco in our politicalsky. lo bosorious, however, it is, wc tako it, its great an oxhlbition of human folly as any sane, trii man could well bo guilty of, to attempt to get up a third party in this Stato on tho exclusive ground of abolition. Who docs not know that the great mass of both political parlies in Vermont cherish a deadly hostility to the system of southern Slavery 1 Who can point ton single prominent man in the stato, bo ho Whig or Loco, who docs not consider it as a monstrous and unhallowed system of iniquity and oppression ? and a foul stain upon our National charactor 1 Whero is the man, that breathes the pure air or tread the groon hills of Vermont, who has tho hardihood to raise his voico to palliate or excuse tt( Who docs not know that our state Legislature, has, for a scries of years, with unsurpassed unanimity, passed resolution! expressing the strongest abhoranco of tho system and urging our Delegation in Con gress to the very vcrgo of their constitutional power to wipe the foul stain from our na tional escutcheon ? and yet, notwithstanding all this, there are a few men in the state who havo the insufferable vanity to sot themselves up as tho exclusive friends of humanity, and denounce, at pro slavery men, all those who think thero aro other evils, which call for re form than the system of southern Slavery, and other subjects worthy to occupy a small por tion of their thoughts. As for Col. Paine he is as much of an abolitionist as any ra tional man could desire. Wo ourselves heard him maintain in this town last winter. that Congress not only possessed the consti tutional power, but was in duty bound, to abolish Slavery in the District of Columbia and in the territories and refuse hereafter to admit into the Union any slave State. Fur ther than this Judge Williams himself is not prepared to go. And wc arc happy to as sure our friends abroad that we do not know a single-Whig abolitionist in this section of t!.c state fund wo havo quite a number in our neighborhood) who is not prepared cheer fully to unite with his bretlicrcn in support of Col Paine and tlic othor nominees of the late Whig Convention. THE NATIONAL DEBT. Tho following statement from the National Intelligencer exhibits tlic amount of the NATIONAL DEBT which Van Burci contracted during his four years Administra tion and left for tho Whigs to pay. What confidence can the people of this State place in a party which, like the late Administra tion party, after havingsquandcrcd the enor mous revenue of the Guvuiciiici. i o.,l mvoiv- a the country in atlcbtol nearly TWENTY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, turns round tnd abuses the Whig Administration for bor rowing tiio money to pay it 1 THE FINANCIAL UUKSTION. It scents to us somewhat surprising that there should be such du crsity of opinion as to the true con dition of the Treasury, when that condition is sus ceptible of such easy illustration ns the following !

Tho Loco Focos nro in a perfect agony at the prospect, that tho Extra Session will torminato without c.xibiting those scenes of violence and nnarchy which havo usually marked tho proceedings of Congress under tho two preceding Administrations. What friend of Law and order, what well dispo sed citizen of cither party, can read, without emotion, such sentiments as tlic following, deliberately published in ono of the lending Loco Foco papers of New England 1 We copy the passage from llio Washington cor respondent ofthoIJity Stato Democrat.

Many of our friends arc confident that it will orcakupin a roie, nnd nothing bo done. 1 can hard ly hope to good a result yet.'" THE COUNTY CONVENTION. It will bo seen by a notice in another col umn, that the Whigs of Chittenden County aro again called upon to meet in convention, at Williston, on the 31st instant, for tho purpose of selecting suitable! candidates to represent the county in tlic Statu Senate for the ensuing year. Wc hope every town in the county will bo fully and fairly represented. Several measures, important in themselves and intimately connected with the prosper ity of the State, wc havo no doubt, will be brought before tho Legislature, at its ap proaching Session; and nniongtlicm the sub ject of a Geological survey of the State. Such a survey has been repeatedly and ear nestly rcccommended by our present worthy Governor, nnd yet to tlic disappointment of the people, and disgrace of tho State, it has failed to obtain the sanction of our Legisla ture. Besides it is now rendered utmost certain that the Hill to distribute among tho several Slates the proceeds of the sales of the public Lands, will pass both branches of Congress at the present Extra Session, and rccicvc the sanction of the President. If this Bill becomes a Law, the share of Vermont in these proceeds will amount to moro than $50,000 per annum. Hero there will bo another important subject for llie action of our State Legislature. To ensure the passago of an act for tlic survey of the State, and to dispose of our share of tho revenue arising from the sale of the Public Lands, in such manner as to make it a bles sing instead of a curse, wc must send to the Legislature, men who not only possess the sagacity to percievc the benefit which may result to the State from two measures of such vital importance, but tho ability to make others understand it also. In short wc must select our strongest nnd most substantial cit izens, men who feel an interest in the honor and prosperity of tho State. To secure this suit wc cannot too strongly urge upon our friends in the tlillerent parts of the county the necessity of having every town well and fairly represented. RUTLAND COUNTY. W v...J-,.,J .,i; inurnment loJl.ivl uals in Rutland county, who have heretofore been regarded as good Whigs manifest some dissatisfaction because the Candidate of their choice was not nominated for the office of Governor of Vermont, at the late Whig Stale Convention. We have also heard it staice on what wc regard as good authority, that Messrs. Picrpoint and Fool, arc among tho number of malcontents, and that they have expressed a determination to press the claims of Jtielgc Williams, for that office, notwith standing they opposed his election to the U &. henate two years ago, on the ground that ho was a Loco Fo co ! and notwithstanding the almost entire unanimity with which the nomination of Col. Paine was confirmed by the Montpolicr Convention, Messrs. P. and F. being botli present, and cheerfully acqui escing. Now if these things arc not so, it is toing great injustice to these two gentlemen to add to the circulation of the report, for they aro among the very last men in the State whom we should ever have suspected of such gross inconsistency. But if tho . hut i! tho k the Rmhind it is or not wo ii . "0I' "c statement is true (and we ask Herald to inform us whether havo one very plain and simple observation to make on tlic subject. If these two gen tlemen choose to separate themselves from the mass of their political brethren in the State, and oppose the fairly chosen candi date of their paityrfejr the simple reason that the man of their preference happens to reside in another Congressional district, tljcji, unless wo have greatly mistaken the character ol tne Vhigs of Vermont, tho crooked policy of theso two gentlemen will not bo likely to strengthen thejr claims upon the party, cither in the Stale at large, or in the Jiutland Congressional District. CONGRESSIONAL. The following proceedings embrace every thing of importance that has been done by Congress since our last paper was issued. We percievc some of the city papers regard the postjwncmcntofMr. Clay's Bank Bill by tho Senate, to take up the Loan Bill of tho House, as un indication that the former Bill will not succeed in iho Senate this session. But wo entertain no such fears, but have on the contrary the fullest confidence in the ul timate success of that measure. CoNiinr.ss. On Wednesday, Mr, Clay rcpor ted the I-oan Hill from the lloiise.and urged the necessity of immediate action, lie stated on hursday that there was not money enough in the Treasury to defray the expenses for a singlo fortnight. Messrs. I alhoua, llenton, and others vehemently opposed Ibis pressing the Bill lljro' as abridging the freedom of debate, &e. Tho debate, in .Venate, on the Fiscal Bank, seems to bo nearly concluded ; and there is a rumor that, not beingable to carry it through, .Mr. Clay will allow it to lie on the table, aud wait for one from the House in its place. In tho House, the most important njoyomout of Wednesday and Thursday was tho introduc tion, from the Committeo of Ways and Means, of a Bill in relation to drawbacks, &c, providing for an increase of duly on all goods that no w pay less than 'JO per cent., and for a duly of JO per cent, on most goods now. free. SATUUDAi. imnipdiatelv alter the reading of the journal, j Mr, Arnold, of Tenner etc, threw the house into ! lgJJlltlWII a perfect fever, by moving n reconsideration cf the vote of yesterday adopting the resolution of .Mr. 1'rolTitt, which provided that the I'ortifica Unit Hill should bo litcd out of Committeo hU dayat'-J o'clock. The members instantly clustered round him. wondering what, in tho name of heaven, had come over him. Well. Ho said that since tho adjournment of tho IIouso yesterday, lie had had an interview with a gentleman ot high sta. tion, and who-o souiccsof information wore of the most ii nqticstiunablc character, which had led him to the painful conclusion that probably none of tho great measures for the adoption of which Congress had been called together, could bo consummated. If such was tho fact, and he had, ho said, the most awful forebodings of its truth if no measure tending to ameliorate the currency of the country, of tho condition of llio people could ho carried, owing to tho condition of things in the oilier branch of tho legislature, he, for one, was unwilling to go on voting, as ho had done, the most liberal appropriations, for tho naval and military defence of the coun try, iS:c. when it was obvious that in such a con tingency, the moans to meet those appropriations could only bo commanded by a rcsoit to direct taxation. lie cut hard at Mr. Tyler, expics Mnghi.s fearful nppichensiolis that the Star of Virginia abstractions was in tho ascendant at this time, in which event, he said there was an end to commerce, an end to the prosperity of tho country, and an end to evory thing that had rendered this nation great and glorious among the nations of the earth. It is not possible to give you any idea of tho upbearings of wrath and excitement which this last declaration created in certain parts of tho House. Immediately after -1r. Arnold had tak en his scat, Mr. Triplett, ofKentucky.detnaiided the previous ipicsli in to the motion' to reconsid er. The vote on this demand was a tie tho ayes bcingS:), and the noes .'). This tin ew the responsibility of decision on the Speaker, who, with a prompitudc 1 havo nevor seen surpassed voted aye -thus, by his casting vote, determin ing tho motion in the affirmative. The vote on tho Resolution by yeas 10:t, navii 7, was reconsidered : and .Vr. l'roflitt immedi ately withdrew Iih resolution. IN SKNATn-Kriday. Mr. Allen proposed an inquiry to tho committee on Foreign Relations, ns to whether it wonld report on that part of the President's Message relating to tho Mcl.eocl and Caroline all'air. lie was not desirous to know what the y would rcporl.btit whether they would report at all. Mr. Tallniadge answered m behalf ortho committee, (the chairman being absent,) thai lie could not answer, hut that the chairman would return in it few days, and that n risnnnsi- miMii then bo given. Till: IJHul.L. Mr. Clay mocd to tnRhil! during tho mor ning hour, urging as n rfflpo prostrate condition ol Iho Treasury, there beingTBt moro than $900,000 on hand. Under this state of the case, he nppcaled to the candor and liberality of Senators to jet the bill pas at once. .Mr. t'nlhoun had immediately conjured up to hi imagination a funded debt, distribution of tho nro. eecds of tho public lands, etc. In this pliiu hill ho tiiougiitneuiscoiered every possible evil, and cunced his determination to rcsit it as fomblv ns hp won!,! nn measure of this evtra session. Mr. Clay, in mild tone and manner, pointed to the consequences that might ensucfroni delay, that the public credit might be dishonore d : and appealing lo the .Senator to fore go bis opposilii n to the present bill, and reserve it for tiiceiuty or land uiu. ilo instanced iho numerous timesm tliciiouse, wnen liewas m the minority, that Treasury note bill were ri ported and nasscd on tlm Panic day. 1 lus ery proper appeal met no kind of response j but, un the conliary, a inot vigoiou opposition wan kept up during the whole day by the party unitd, nnd tho Senate had to gointo executive business without any definite action being had on the bill. H.V1 IIIIMV. Mr. Calhoun presented tho procrccings or.a meet ing or somo Virginian, held in rebu'-o n? the nil.lcci before Congass.

INTERESTING CELEBRATION. The Anniversary of our Nation's frccdoirj was celebrated in a very pleasant and appro priate iiniinicr, by the Sabbath Schools am', citizens of Chailottcand Essex, N. Y., on Tuesday of last week. At ten o'clock, thg Sabbath schools of Charlotte, with a consid erable number of citizens, assembled at Mc Neil's Ferry. A procession was formed of about thrco hundred persons, which, with ap propriate music, marched to the Ferry Boat and embarked for Essex. On arriving at the Essex shore, wo were met hy a large pro cession of sabbath scholars, teachers and cit izens. That part of the Essex procession, to whom was assigned llio oflico of welcom ing their Vermont friends, consisted of twenty-six young ladies, of about equal size, all dtejsed in white; each wearing a green sash or ribbon around the vvuUt, and a wreath of evergreen around tho head, each of the la dies bearing a parasol. These twenty -six young ladies presented themselves in this unity of rpirit and dtcss ns tho symbol of our national union, assuming lespectively the names of all our several States. It was cer tainly a prettv device most happily concei ved and handsomely executed. Tho two processions now united, and ex tending nearly half a mile in length, procee ded to tho Presbyterian Church, under dircc- tion of Col. I'arkhill, Marshal of tjic day.-
