The general fi ling with these nr.itnrs on this sub ject is that they want fad -bill Mr MpDurtie ap peared to be pretty well urmod in this respect, hav ug roii'tilinl all Iho masters on facts, not only here l ut in .New York. .Mr '.vans said it was not from any pirentnl par linlilyto the tariff ol 1942, as the Senator supposed, tliat he had eh-ncd to nv il this discussion. It was from n ronwclion that the perpetual agitation of the sulij-cl was fraught vvifli mischief to the public inter ests. It held out an cxprctnlinn of changes, that would not be realized. IS.it as tho Senator bad open cd the subject, ho should follow him in Inn course of argument. Ihu hour being Jate, tho Senate spent a short timo in Kxetcutivo session, and then adjourned to Monday. In the House, Jlr Adams inquired of the chairman of the committee on post otrirns and post roads whether that coinmiiito had undrr consideration the subject of the reduction of the rates of postage, mid if so, when they would leport, and whether they would report a bill reducing postages. f,IL M'V'Vj" rTlied, in substance, that the commit Ue hid held souio conversation on (ho subject, but bo did nol know their views, nnd could ay nnthin" positive i but they would report something in the course of some wei Us.

Ho had heitd it said that he ought to laU thisqucBlion out of doors. Uui several members had nccumil him of falsehood, and bo could not fii!kl them oil.

(Ileio MrMeC. threw himself into the at titude of ona who had taken hi station and was "ready.") Mr Slowart said be had a right to vindicate turn eilf biforu the country. In making his charges, he had. at no tune, refheted personally upon any enc hero. The member from Ohio (Mr W'elltr) had con tradicted him and abused him. Hoionfe.scd that be was then guilty nf an wror. He mado some reply to the member. Had he known him as well as bo now did, if he-had known of him what he had since heard, ho would not hive condescended so lur. Tho Speaker called tho member to order for mati ng personal reflections, and speaking without leave. One or two members, in tho mean tune, objected lo MrS's proceeding, Mr Jo M orris and Mr Harnard, at different times, Sbked leave of Iho House for -Mr Stewart to pro ceed. To tnako ti I0112 story short, tho committee rose ond reporied. Mr Stewart again Dtkcd leave to address the lluus.1. The previous question was moved on llie resolu tion rcpuitcd by the committee.

The bill provides that letters not weighing more than half an ounce shall bo charged five cents for any eli3lanco not exceeding one hundred miles; ten tents fer nuy distance exceeding a hundred miles ; with tho same additional postage, for every additional quarter oran ounce weight. That iho postago on newspapers and pamphlets bo greatly reduced.

Cilhnun is stronger in South Carolina and Ala. buna, but hu scarcely tho elndowof a party in any other State. Buchanan has withdrawn wisely, knowing his own weakness and want of claim. In contending that Van, who has some parly all over tho Union, is the strongest man, the Knnuirer iu right. Ho ran possibly, nay probably, got a Stales out ef 20 one more than any other of tho party could get, and ho ought, therefore, to be ailhered to, to break its fall as much as possible!

It was an instance of unnecessary tact and sunoreriigatory cunning, which will return to plague their inventors. lloro was an opportunity lor Van to appear po litically honest to assume a virtue, if he had it not.

This natural curiosity is somotimes called Wmootki Falls. Tho writer of tho bal lad, in ionic preliminary remarks, states "that Winooshi, was tho name of an Indi " an, who occupied llio hill, and who chosa " to romain there alone till doath, after tho " rest of his tribo had died, or had removed " to another abode, distant from tlio on " croaclimcnts of the whito man." Now from tho above statement, persons, who aro ignorant of tho true origin and meaning of tho beautiful name of our beau tiful river Winooski, would bo led to the conclusion that it was derlvoel n n inn of an individual Indian, and that a tribo of Indians formerly had their residence in tho iinmedintc vicinily of tho abovo mentioned falls. But every person at all acquainted with our early history knows that both theso conclusions are untircly false. At least, thcro is not a particle of evidence in proof that that section of our stato was even the site of an Indian tribo, or town, and a differ ent origin of the namo of our river is well ascertained. It is true that previous to, and at tho time of, tho sot'.lemont of this slat... tlmm was a small branch of tho Abonaqui tribo of inuians located at Coos on Connecticut riv or, most of whom soon went into Canada nnd joined thoir brethren at St. Francis.
