Mr Hale, of N.

A great number of members were on llieir feet nt the same lime, addressing the Chair nt the top of their voices. When order was restored, tho question was put on seconding tho previous que-lion, and there was a seenn I. r.nqniry was made of the Chair what was tho stale of tlin business before the House, and what would be llio effect of llio previous quo-lion. Tlio Speaker replied lb it the report on tlio rules was the main subject before the Houso. Nixt was tho amendment of Mr Dromironle, wnich consisted of a code of Iiiiiwn,embracingihe21st rule. Then camo Mr C. Johnson's amendment to Alt D's nmendmcnt, which provides that the rules of llic list Congress shall bo the rules oftlic present, except the 21st rule, which shall provide that pet lions for tho abolishment of slavery shall bo received and I.11 1 on Iho lablo wilh- out debate. The cllect of the previous question would be 10 bring tho Mouse to a voto on Air Johnson's amendment. Tno Ch iir staled lint the question would now be, "shall tho main question bo now put," and on this qiP'stion the yeas nnd nays were ordered. Mr Ilelser moved tolny the whole subjpct on the tnl Ic, and on this motion the yeas and nays were or dered. In answer to a question, the Chair slated that the effect of laying tlic subject on the table would bn lo retain the 21 s rule, and 10 make llio rules of the last Contrress l ie ru'es of tho present. The vote was then taken, and the result was. yeas 00, nays 93. so the subject wa not laid on lheiahle.

Sjacv, I nolicein the True Democrat of tbs 21st iust., an article in relation to the recent action of the Senalo upon the Hill refunding 10 Gen. Jackson tho fine imposed upon him by Judge Hell in IS 15, in vvhicli it is asserted lhat 1 olh the Senators from Ver mont veiled against doing Justice to the hero of New Orleans. Tho editor gives the vote upon the amend ment proposed by the Coininitleo on the Judiciary, providing " that nothing in ihe bill should be consid ered an imputati'ii upon the conductor Judge Hall ir imposing the fine." This amendment was resisted bjr llicfriends of Gen. Jackson and of the bill, not upon the ground that llieir desij n was to reflect upon iho conductor the deceased Judge, but upon llic ground that the bill implied no such imputation, and ihitths amendment was unnecessary. If such was their con struction of the bill, 1 saw no harm in exprring what they considered implied, nor did I see any injus tice lo Gen. Jackson in rendering the bill mors sa pient in expressing their views. II is true however, that I voted ajunstthe bill upon ils final passage, ond for reasons vvhicli I most cheer fully submit to the good tense and deliberals judg ment of the people of 1 crmont. A more gross decep tion was never practised upon the American people, than has been imposed upon them in relalion to this matter. It his been represented, thai ihe transac tion for which the fine was imposed occurred in Ik presence of the army, ond while the city of New Or leans was in imminent danger. Indeed I have re cently seen it osscited that Judge Hall was conspiring wilh a class of men, who we ro engaged in a secral correspondence with the enemy. Tins assertion is an cd identical with tho honor and welfare of: tends that such was the fact. Hut under the impre tlin Heniiblic. Iiu commented in a few . ion that the conduct of Gen. Jackson was demanded dout WooiIk of llowdoiii College as Orator, with Hov. Calvin Colton of tho U.
