An irrryular conversation ensued, In which Messrs l.rutii,;i-!e of Va. C. .1.

Tno Members of the House woro then qual ified in the order of the States. Mr I.roingoolo of Va., moved to adopt the Ru!e3 and Orders of the last Congress for the present. Mr Cave Johnson moved to adopt tho Ono Hour HuIcj alto. Vtiriicd Yeas 90; Nav'fi 02. So the One Hour Huh is again adopted. Mr Adams moved an amendment to Mr Dromguoie'u amendment, to exclude the 21st rule. Mr A. said ho did not intend to debate tl.c subject ; it was too well understood both in the House and in tho country, but ho called on the majority of tlio House, certain as they were of being able to mane any Opposition tney rnosn of petitions, to vvipo away from tlio annals of the House the disgrace of abridging the rilit of petition on tlio part of the people. These pcti lions might bo received without tho slightest daniror to any intorei-t in the country. Mr Adams's amendment was lejoctcd ; Yeas 01, Nays 93 and thus the 21st rul'3 is con tinued, and Abolition Petitions excluded. Mr Wise moved an amendment to Mr Drnm poole's motion to sti ike out the rule of the last Congress empowering a majority tofW a time to terminate dobato on any subject in Committee of the Whole on the state of tho Union. Mr Adams moved to amend this by striking out in addition, the rulu authorizing a suspen sion of the rules at any time for the purpose of going into committee of tho Whole of the Un ion, by a majority vote. Mr Wise accepted Mr Adams's amendment, as a modification. Messrs Adams, Wise, Rhett and C. J. In gersoll advocated the striking out of the rules, on the ground of thoir being abridgments of the freedom of speech, &a and Messrs Hopkins and Cave Johnson advocated iliem ay indispensable to tho transaction of business. such is not tbc deduction of Mr Tyler t but, instead of tlio deficiency of four millions ol dollars which ho estimates will exist in ISIS, there is abundant qround for the expectation dial, with tho incrcaso of trade consequent upon tho unproved financial condition of all classes of our citizens, tho amount of revenue do rivablu from this source will bo very materially aug mented witluu the next two years, anu Hint tlio sum derived from the sale of the pul lio lands will also bo compose tlio committee. This was objected toby much greater than for several years past.

Tho Annual Message of the President was received by tlio hands of tho Private Secretary and tho business ponding being suspended, it wat read by tlio Clerk. Mr Wisu moved the printing of the usual number, and 10,090 oxtra copies, with the ac companying documents ; which, after conversa tion at some length by various members, was finally agreed to. Mr Cave Johnson to stave ofT Mr Barnard's motion moved an adjournment J which was carried.

Uv tho subioined letter from tho Postmaster at Hudson tn thu Postmaster in thin city, it will be seen that tlio Mall Bag from tho Albany ofiico containing tho mails of Wednesday and Thtirs day last, was stolen from tho Post-coach or tho Coach office at Hudson, rilled nt many ot its valuable contents, and thrown Into the river, whore it was found by (.apt. Hyatt of the Dtica. Of the amount of money stolen it is impossible yet to torni any conjecture. Wo learn from Mr. Ivasson that the way bill was a very heavy one, and that tliero wero uralts to tlie amount of sixty or seventy thousand dollars in the mail. Payment of these last will of courso bo stopped, but the recovery of the money is another thing. Our Postmaster, Mr. Wassom, has dispatched a "confidential Clerk to Hudson to assist in the ex amination of the rilled mail bag, and has taken every step in his power to effect the detection of the robbers and the recovery of the stolen property. Mr. Humphrey, tho special agent of P. O. Department, has also gone to Hudson to aid in these objects. It is greatly to be hoped that these prompt measures will avail to bring to justice tlie perpetrators of this high handed robbery : Post-Office. Hudson, Dec 8, 1S.3.

Much has been said and written ere now, touching the evils of slavery, and not a litlla of iho disposition too often manifested by Ihc rich to take advantage of the poor, and there is loo much truth and justice in what has been published under tlna head, for ul suc cessfully to deny tho fact.

The fault of ibis mode of obtaining satisfaction for debt not be- fjrc voluntarily discharged, is that it more often falls upon the honest, than upon the fraudulent and dis honest, and when piopcrly is thus taken as satisfac tion fordebt it is often, and indeed almot always, sbl for much less than its real value.

UARNARD'S PROTEST, lie. Correspondence of tho Tribune. Washington, Doc. 5, 1813. Inthe Hnusn ok RfimnsnNTATivns, todiy, the journal upon reading showing an entire omission of all tlie proceedings of yesterday in reference to tho Pro'cst of Mr Barn ud, and other Whig members against tlie admission of those Members elected by general ticket, Mr Birnard moved to amend it so as to state the motion of Mr J. II. Ingorsoll to grant him leave to read the Protest, and to as to contain it at full length w hich gavo rise to a debate of some I fully in tlie organization of tho House of Repre seni.iuvc!-, as u tuey wero memuers mereni. By the act of Congress of Juno '-J5, 181'J, "for the appointment of Representatives among the several States according to the sixth censuF," it was enacted "that in every case whore a State is entitled to more than one Representative, the number to which each fc3t.ic nball be entitled un der the appointment shall be elected by districts composad of contiguous territory, equal in num ber to tho number of Representatives to which said State may be entitled, no ono district elect in? more than ono Renrc.autative." Tlio several States abuve named have refused or failed to provide bv law for the election by Districts of Representatives from those States respectively to tlio 123th Congress, each of them being entitled to more than ono Representa tive, and tlie people of those States have failed, therefore, to elect itepreseiuauvcs uy uisincis, as the law of Congresd required. These facts arc notorious, indisputable and undisputed ; they are known lo all, and admit ted by all. Failing to elect by districts, they have failed to elect at all, for all legal and constitu tional nurnoses. They could not elect, because there were no districts in those States from which to elect. Election bv general ticket is no elec tion. No existing and valid law authorized any such election to be held ; and no election, there fore, has been held in thoso States at which Re presentatives fur the 25tli Congress could be chosen. It is understood, nevertheless, that the per sons ab.ivo named propose and intend to voto in tho election for Speaker, on tlio ground that they hold returns, or written certificates orcom- missions, drawn up in regular lorm, purpnrim, to bo thu evidenco of tlioir election tativcf.

This document comes with smaller claims to con siderution than any, perhaps, that has ever emanated from tho Executive of the nation. Mr. Tyler, though in tlio full uxcrciso of Presidential power, has no legislative influ ence, as ho has no party in the halls of Con gress. Tho Corporal's Guard has been broken up by tho appointments which pur chased for tho time being, a lean support ; and those whose election was claimed as a Tyler triumph in N.

"Tho Rlessagn has llio merit of being toler ably brief and, on most topics sufficiently explicit. Its referonco to thu condition of our foreign relations is, in the iniiiii, satisfac tory. A good understanding prevails be twee n our own and all the trans-Atlantic Governments ; and the Oregon question, the only mooted point between this country, and Great Britain, is in n fair way to he settled honorably and amicably. Tliu subject of the relations between Texas, Mexico anil the United Suites, engrosses a large portion of thu Message. But though Mexico is pretty soundly berated for her course towards Tex as, the question of" annexation" is very re motely alluded to, and tho interference of this country is only invoked to put a stop to the fluem war waged betwern our neighbour republics. The Message also hints ut a re vision of the Tarilf but does not specify in what respect, if any, tho present law needs amendment or alteration. The rovenucs for calendar year 1843, exclusive of loans, are staled at a little over 818,000,000; the ex penditures $23,000,000. Congress is invit ed to increase the " resources of tho reve nue," though in what way or by wlut means Mr. Tyler does not say. Tho Exchequer scheme is again urged upon llio considera tion of tho National Legislature and an in crease of the Army and Navy distinctly re commended. It is not probable that tho first of these propositions will receive any greater favor at the hands of tho present Congress than it did from tho last ; nor, in llio existing condition of the National finan ces, will the latter recommendations be like ly to he acted upon." As a document tho message is without force, and wanting in any decided character. Tho recommendations aro few, not vpry strongly urged, and the President evidently writes un der the consciousness that lie possesses tho confidence of no party, and that his sugges tions will carry but little weight or authority with them. In short, il lacks tho moral force and energy which can alone result from the consciousness of abiding integrity and un tainted honor. To these Mr. Tyler has long been a stranger. He parted company with them when he betrayed his friends, and at tempted to barter tho trophies of tho conquest with thu unoniv.

Tlio Calhoun pnrty not being strong enough to organize, it apparently dissolved, or merged in the rival laction, and Mr. Cal houn can now hardly be considered as a can didate in earnest for llio Presidency. I think the dissolution of that party a serious evil. They would havo operated as an im portant check on tho Van Buren faction, and widely as limy differ from us upon almost every question, which we hold lo be vital, yet it is not to bo denied, that ihe struggle on their part did involve oilier principles than the seven of Mr. Ritchie, and that tho party partook somewhat of tlio immeasura ble superiority, both moral and intellectual, of their leader over his miserable compcti t cr.
