Resolutions which were offered yesterday by Mr. Tappan nf Ohio, calling for papers Ac, in the case of t'oiimander Mackenzie, of thn I rig Somers, were again brought up to-riay. .Mr. Kingof Alabama, was anxious to know what object was to bo gained by 1 this enquiry vvh.'n the Senate could take no action in I the case. It would only revive excitement upon this , most unhappy affur, an I arouse unkind feelings vvtih out effecting any object.

Tho pci pie had learned nothing of its merits, Fave what they had gathered from newspaper reports. Ho wanted to prevent tho recurrence of a similar scene, if, on en quiry, it should tut n nut that the Commander's course was justifiable. At the lequest of Mr, llttchanau of Pennsylvania, the subject was laid over for Iho pre sent. The ioint resolutions in relation to the nceunation of the Oregon Territory next came forward, and Mr. Atchison of .Mo., addressed the House at length on the necess.ty of immediaio action nn the part nf this government. He conten led that this was a question in which we had no right to enter into a negociation. r.very foot of ground that we claimed was justly nuts. And the proper position for us to assume was to give immediate notice to Cireat Britain that at theexpira tion of twelve month- from dale, wo would proceed with the occupation of the territory. He was follow lowed hy Mr. t-'hoate nf .Mass. who argued strongly in favor of negociation and slid that by that means there was no danger of our getting every inch of our rutins without n war, whereas such an intimation as that proposed by the Senator from .Mo., would be the im mediate signal for arms. At the roo of Mr. Choale's speech the Senate adjourned. FainAv, Feb. 21. In tho Senate, to-day, the discussion was continu ed on tho resolution of Mr. Semple, instructing tho President of tho United States to give notice to the Hriiish government for the termination of biicIi pro visions of thetrealy with that power as allows her to occupy, jointly with the United States, the Oregon Territory. Mr. llannegan occupied the floor for up wards of nn hour, in a masterly, elonncnl. and natri- otic speech, in reply to the rcmarksof Mr. Choateof yesteriiay. .Mr. I) tyton followed in opposition to the passage of the resolution. His argument went to show thai the title of this government to the territory was not so clear as held hy the fnendsof the resolu tion; that it was impolitic to determine tho joint oc cupation i that the territory was a worthless waste, and must remain as a great American Sahara. He maintained that ihe true policy of ihe government j. to diseourase tho occupation and settlement ol that country! Ihe contrary policy would weaken the bonds by which thegovernuient was held together. He did not conclude. He will resume the subject on Monday. The Senate then adjourned till Monday. The debate on tho report of the Nelecl Committeo on the Itulcs was continued in the House, to-day, by Mr. Rogers of.

At this lime- tho kitchen was nearly consumed, and Dr Spen cer nnd hn wife had barely time to escape, not being even nl letn save a particle of clothing except such ns was on them. Mrs. S. seized the two joungest chil dren and brought them from Ihe burning house. The Doc'or. however, nppeared to lose all presence of mini from the very moment when he discovered the fire, nnd even rushed so near the flames and stood there, that tho little clothing which lie bad on actually took file. His wife drew him nvvny, and rndeavnred to re cal him ton sense of their sitinlion, when ho com menced throwing snow upon the fire.

Nothing was saved, nssome time occurred before the neighbors rallied, and water was obtained with difficulty. A portion of tho remains of I 'r.

It will bo rerollocted that this lady was ap. prehended in tho Uniled Slates, on a'chnrgc of murder, and brought hack to Scotland for trial, At the High Court of Rdinburch, nn Friday, she was tried for the murder of John (Jilinour, her husband, at Inr.hinnan, in January, 13111. Mrs. (lilmnur was Iho first person surrendered on a criminal charge by the United States, under tho j Ashburton Treaty. I lor appearance is attri.c. tive, her bearing docoroti'-. She was. thodaugh-1 terofMr. Cochrane, a substantial farmer"of Ayrshire; and her husband was the ton of a neighbor in a similar condition of life. She i was about twenty-three years old at the time of her marriage; her husband about thirty. An! attachment had been formed livo years before, between Christiana and John Anderson, anoth cr neighbor: but the girl was obliged hy her parents lo marry Gilmmtr. The Glasgow Saturday Post says, on 'unques tionable authority, that though they lived togeth er for si weeks and regularly retired to the same bed room, Mrs Gilmoiir never undressed during tho whole time." At tho trial, it was stated that they lived unhappily together. In a declaration which she had made, Mrs. Giltnotir said that she was upbraided by her husband, while he was lying ill, willi having broken his heart ; to which sho replied, that ho had already broken hers, that he was not her choice, anil that she could never feel towards him as a wife should feel towards a husband. Such were the circumstances under which, six weeks after their marriage, Gilmour fell ill, with all the symptoms of having been poisoned by arsenic, and died; it was proved that a post mortem examination of his remains detec.ied the presence of artenic ; and that his wife had purchased some. On the other hand it was mado clear that ar senic was habitually used at their farm for tho instruction of rats ; that Mrs Gilmour sedulous ly during his illness, mado no opposition to call ing in medical advice, and, in short, showing no evidence of conscious guilt, and no desiro f.-r concealment ; she herself wished the authori ties to unbury tho body. In a letter which sho wrote to Anderson, after Gihnottr's death, hut boforo sho went to America, nho complained that she was sent away, though sho did not say by whom ; she said that otherwise (-ho would have staid 'till all was settled about John Gil. tnour's death ;" and admitted that she had bought atonic, but to tako it hers-olf. In her declaration, sho said that sho hid bought it for poisoning rats. These wero tho principal points of tho evidenco on both sides-.

FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 1, 1844. HISTORY OF FINE WOOL. The reader will find in another part of our paper, an interesting letter from Hon. Wit. mam Jauvis, giving an authentic account of tho first introduction of Merino or Saxony sheep into this country, and other matters of interest connected therewith. Tlio imjior tancc of this branch of our industry is such as to render cvory thing connected with it , lustory. procress, and future iirosiiects.of ab 1 sorbing interest ; and asido from immediate interest, Mr. Jams lias rendered tlio public very acceptable service, in thus placing on record facts for tlio fiituro historian. To tho sagacious foresight and prompt energetic action of Mr. J. aro wo mainly indebt ed for tlio carlv introduction of fine-wooli' sheep into this country ; nnd of its practice importance In the prodtictivo industry of New England, and Vermont in particular, it would be difficult tn form an estimate. Wo ven ture tlio usscition, liuwover, llint, to no indi vidual is the country more indebted, than to the Hon. William Jarvis. And it is but (lie moro fitting that this acknowledgement should bo made, inasmuch as ho has seemed to claim no merit on account of it ; but on thn other band, has uniformly declined office, and the highest honors ofthe State, which have llirico and again been offered him. Only occasion ally, when tlio architects of ruin havn sought to upturn the foundations of our prospeiity, has ho left his retirement to mingle in party conflicts and do battln for llis favorite system of protection ; but on those occasions, ho has always heen the "strongman armed." Long may a green old ago realizo tn him tho rich enjoyments with which a philosophic mind has invested his sunny location on the beau tiful banks of the Connecticut. THE TARIFF It is very evident that tho protecting poli cy is to bo subjected lo a fiery ordeal before the adjournment of Congress. It lias got to withstand tho assaults of its open enemies, and the treachery of northern locofucoism A private letter from Washington, of iho 24th, says: "There is a storm browing " hero against tho Tariff. Tho Calhoun " men and the Van Burcnites aro secretly " projecting nnotlier Compromise. It is a " bold game, and must bo mot." This is Mr. Van Huron's last, desperate card. The Calhoun men aro in tho market, and the surrender of a protecting tarifl' is their price. Van Duron is ready to yield it, and the recent reiteration of his nomination- by the locofocn mem hers of Congress, but too plainly indicates what their courso is to be, uur oui y nope is witn tno senate. vc havo a small whig majority there, and on that wo rely. A part of thut majority, to bo sure, nro Southern men, but they arc whigs: and the tinio has couio when protec tion has got to depend upon Southern whig votes, or fall by northern Van Ilurcnism " BY AUTHORITY." Tho Washington Correspondent of the New York IMchian announces that the Loco Foco members of Congress held meeting at tlio capital on WeUiipstlav last and decided, 1st That .Martin Van Huron was to bo their candidate, and 2d, that ho was " bound to bo elected.1' They like wise " determined," according to tho IMebi an, that Henry Clay was never to bo Pres ident of tho United Slates. Antl this tho Plebian regards as decisive of tho contest. It is natural enough that the Van Huron presses, which reposo implicit faith in parly machinery and look upoi) tlio I'eoplo as merely of uso to register the decrees ofthe caucus, should persuado themselves that tho Presidential contest is tlocided by this "olli eial" announcement of tho Van Iluren lend ers, that tho country must tako up with the " Sago of Lindenwold" for another term of four years. Theso gentlemen havo yet somo lessons to learn about tho nrgnni.ation nnd working of popular governments.

Uishop Hopkins has recently published nt hiliidelphia, a series of Letters addressed to tho Episcopal Church in tho United Slates, touching certain points of doctrine, with winch that communion has been acita- ted for the past year or two. Ho most un equivocally repuuiatcs I'usyism in all its spocts, and shows up its inconsistencies in point of view but poorly calculated to aid its extension among protestants. Ho then proceeds to defino the true position of tho Episcopal Church in roferenco to other de nominations ; in doing which he disavows the exclusiveness which that church has been supposed to assert, and extends tlio hand of liberal fellowship to all christian commun ions. These letters nro having a wido cir culation, and cannot but exert a wholesome influento at tho present moment. Wo alludo to them here, however, moro for the ptirposo of copying the following very hand some compliment from Iilsnop Mc.tnn of Virginnia, which has just reached us thioiigh a southern religions publication, than for canvassing their merits; for wbilo wo aro happy to note this derided stand for the doctrino of christian liberality, wo cannot but regard with much satisfaclion, the deci ded and warm-hcarlcd rccention Bisbon Meatlo has given it. To the Ilishop nf iho Protestant Kpiscopal Church of me 1'iueee ui vermoru: Rt. Rev. ANO PE.vn llnoTltcn i I havn reeenlW received, and with great pleasure read your four printed letters to the bishops and clergy of the Kpis copal Church in these Umled S ates, on ceitnin points in uui-inne nun ufcipiinc now agitating our uelove-d Church in Kngland and America. -If it be lawful and expedient for you thus to make known your senii- nieuis, nnu seen 10 mil lenco oincis lo adopt what you think must likely to conduce lo the peace nnd welfare of our .ion, nnd I can sec no reason lo the contrary, it may also be to one, such ns myself, con scious oi inability to follow your examp'e, at least to toko ibis public method of acknowledging the receipt tf your communications, and lo thank you most sin cerely and heartily for them. 1 desire also in this public manner to do, what I have done in private that is, to re-nde-r ihanks lo the Giver of all grace, that he has granted to you the talents, the learning, the opportunity, and,' above all, iho spirit, to perforin tho task you have nn lertaken in so able, so learned, so judicious, temperate and courteous a manner, as iiiustcnsuro the respect of the candid, the wise, and pious, even though some of them uiny not in every thing agree with yon. You have set nn example to tli-ten luli-i u-mM .,, ,liimit.,,l .......... ?.C nn.t.. ...I.;-!. eaters into tho feelings and iireiuc hce of both nar- ties, and makes all due allowance for their influence overlhe judgment, while, nt Ihe same lime, vou are entirely free from the weakness of indecorous re serve, or ambiguity prevailing ertors of oiird.ay. You havodone what it seems to trie the bishop and clergy in their several degrees and stations nre now called on to do, in s ich manner ns may seem mol suitable that is in reference to the doubts, winch nre but too prevalent, and Inequations that aro con tinually asked, to assert m terms not to be misunder stood, the Protctant character of our Church, in op position to all the glosses and pervers ons of her iiiiiumniiy ilio.e wlm fivor Ihe party which, within the last few years, lias spuing up at Oxford. You have, as I conceive, set forth ths true, moder ate nnd scriptural views of our reformers on the sub ject of the ministry tho ( liureli anil sacraments, in opposition lo thoc extrav igant ones which some very few, at iliffircnt times since the Information, have held, and which, I am persuaded, ever have heen, nnd ever mut be, injurious lo the cause of trua pio.y within our Church, and opposed to her outward extension. Thus estimating vonr letters, I rejoien in their pub licnlion, and mist heartily re omuieiid them to nny willi whommyopini'in may hive the slightest we'ght. especially to my hrethran ofthe clergy and laity in Virginia.

The large yellow house direelly north of the College, was entirely consumed by fire on the morn ing of Sunday list. The house had not been inhabi ted for several months, savo by the birds ofnighi, and no explanation has 1 cen as yet afforded of ihe ori gin of tho fire. Il is probably one of iho-e instances of spontaneous combustion w hich we sometimes .iolice in the city papers. Dan. On Tuesday afternoon tho fins saw-mill on tho Colchester side, at Winooski City, took firo from the gudgeons and was entirely destroyed. Tlio largo machine shop, which stood neat it, was barely saved, through the prompt und persevering efforts of our fire companies, all of whom were upon the ground. The mill was of recent construc tion, and probably second none in tho Slate. The upper loft was occupied by the Plane ing Machine of Messrs. Smiths, which we aro sorry lo add, was also consumed.

The following letter from a "distinguished Republican," in the west, is published in tho Washington!, Spectator, Mr Calhoun's or"an at tho Federal Capital.

Sir Cannoi some feasible plan be adopted to savo lhoM.ot.o Foco party from deleatl Our foes are en thusiastically mifteef upon Clay, and ice ore erery lehere divided upon Van Iluren.

There are also another hundrsd thousand, nt least, who have already voted the last time for Mr Von Iluren. Can wo spare tro hundred thousand men from our ranks, and then put to flight tho Whig army 1 The thin is impossible t' HENRY CLAY AND THE TARIFF. A few of tho Loco Foco prints are juit now busy in a hopeful attempt to prove that Mr. Clay is opposed to a Protective Tariff or if not opposed, that he is but half commit ted to such a measure. Wo commend to theso journals (and among them may bo nam ed the Rochester Advertiser, Buffalo Econo mist, kc.) tlio following extract from last Tuesday's Plebeian ono of their most ap proved coadjutors: Now, wo say to the peop'e of the South and West, and thefriends of Fnu Trade everywhere, tlio policy ol .Ur Clay is well d'Jined. There is no ambiguity. He is in favor of protection, exclusive of revenue, and all he asks is, t'tat if the virions interests of onrpruplu want a higher prottction than icill be nfftn dcil by a retenueduty to slate their case, and il sl'uil be grant ed. He would in order lo win the South, a Ivoeale a pioteciiviidulyonsugar, and in order to satisfy the centre", he would pr ilcct iron. So nfl'ie different see Hons of the Unionh-itin different interests. Theso opinions tho Plebeian, of course, denounces as heterodox, nnd it contrasts them with those entertained by Mr. Vnn Huron, who goes fur a revenue Tariff "w itli dUcrim- i in ilion for other purposes than protection." j We are content lo leave to the People tho ! choice between tlio two men and tho two measures. Eve. Journal. CONNEC TICUT IN MOTION'. Tlio Anniversary of the Birthday of Washington was kept by the Whig Young Men of Connecticut by meeting in Conven tion nlllartford. The Springfield Republican, to which paper we are indebted for llic fol lowing account, represents the Convention as a most grand, enthusiastic, and tmblu one, equalling any of tho similar meetings held during tho memoriablo campaign of IS 10. Tho number of strangers in the city is variously estimated at fioui TEN lo FIFTEEN THOUSAND ! ! Excepting tlio great Bunker Hill Convention of the lOlli of September, IS 10, this surpassed any tiling ever before held in New-England. In the miming of Thursday, the Convention was orgiuied in the City II ill, and the busi ness committee appointed. A letter was read from F. Lawrence, Esq. of Norfolk, heretofore a leading I,ocofoco of that town, renouncing Locofocoism, and giving' in hi adherence to I1HXIIY CLAY. In tho afternoon, the On vention met in the Cnurl Hume Yaid, arinl Charles W. Kockwell, of Norwich, uai chosen President. A series of able and eio. quent resolutions wns reported bv a remimi'tre, and tho Convention was then addres.-ed hv Ex Governor E'Worh, Daniel 1. Tyler, of Wind ham, Win. K.

The Prize Ihnncr, a very splendid one. was awarded to tho Whijfs of iln.-tnl, (in Hartford County,) they having presented a delegation of 29:1, that being the number of Whig votes cast in that town in Id 10 ! In the evening, the City Hall was crowded to excess, and Governor ' Morehead, and Mr. Brooks, of the N. V. Express, made glorious speeches, which were received with great ap plause. In regard to tho banners, of which a host were displayed on the occasion, we take tho following Irom tho Courant of Friday : Nothing has ever been amons us. which compares with the procession which came into mo cuy jesteruay, ami ii.iy uelore, to attend the Convention. limners, borne on lush by good and true-hearted Whijje, told the purposes and the determination with which they had come, banners (jaily and beautifully trimmed, on w hich were inscribed in various ways, the principles which govern the Whigs in the present contest. Nearly all these mottoes contained ihe prouu nent sentiment now ruling the Whig party, the doctrines of protection to America Labor.
