The bill having been road through, Mr. Adams pointed out wherein it conflicted with the Con. s'ituli'in. Tho bill locates the I rcasitry of tlio (Jutted States in certain rooms nf a public build ing in this city. It also makes other ilesmtsito. ries in other cities, and authorizes the money to ho transferred by draft nf the Treasurer of tho United Slates. Mr. Adams suggested that this provision was in conflict with the clause in Ino Coustilution which forbids money to be drann Iroin the Treasury, except in pursuance of ap propriations nia.to by Congress.

In order lo nequire that territory before il had nsumed a position iiinoug tiie independent powers of the earih, ptopoi inns were made to Mexico for a cos ion of it to ihe V. Slates.

S'ntcs which have tio special airency in the miller, bcci iso the Executive of iho whole Union has neaotiatpd with free and independent Texas upon a mailer vital Iv important to the interests of both countries. And after nine yenrs of unavailing war, Mexico now an nounces her intention, ihtouah her Sectetnry of For eian ArTiirs, never to consent lo the Independence of Texas, or to abandon the cflhrt to reconquer ihat Re public. She thus announces a perpetual claim, which nt the end of a century will furnish herns plausible a nroiind for discontent against any nation, which nt the end of that lime may enter 'into a Treaty with Texas, as she posiessjs nt this moment nzains the United Stales.

I am greatly obliged, Gentlemen, by Ihe kind ncss awards inr, which has prompted this visit from the Governor, the Presidential Electors nl Kentucky, nud somonf my fellmv citiz"iis in pri vate life. And I Ihank yuu, Sir, (Mr. Under unod) their organ, nn litis nceasitiii, Inr tlio feel ing and eloquent address which you have done mo the honor to deliver. I am under the great est ohliiral ous lo tlio People of Kentucky. Du ring more th in lorty years nf my life, they have demonstrated llieir roiilidencti and aflertiou to. wauls inc. in every variety of form. Tins last ami frowning evidence nt their long and laiihlul attachment, exhibited in tho vote which, in their behalf, you gave yesteiday, at the seat of the Stale Government", at the Kleeioral College nf Kentucky, fills mo with metfl iwio' gratiltid". Hut 1 should fail to express the leoliuirs of my be in, if I tlid not also nfTor my profound nc. kn uvledgui'Mi's lo Ihe other S atcs vliieli have united with Kentucky in the endeavor lo elect me In the Chief Magistracy of tin; Union, and lo tin: million ami a quarter ul tree men, em'iraritig mi much virtue, intelligence and palriott in, ho, w hrever resid ng, have directed elrc"iious and enthusiastic exertions to the same object. Their effort has heel unavailing, and the is. sue nf the election has not rorrespotued with their anxious ltoies and confident expectations. You have, sir, assigned some nf the causes which you suppose have occasioned the result. I will not trust myself In speak uf them. My duty is that nf perfect submission to the even?, which is now irrevocable. I will not affect indifference to tho personal n n en, which 1 had in tho political contest just terminated; but, unlc.-s I am greatly sell-tie. eeivetl, the principal attraction to mo of the of fice uf President nf the United States, arose out of the cherished hope that I mialit beau humble instrument in tlm hands nf Providence, to ac complish much good. I desired to see the lor uinr purity of the general Government restored, nnd tn see dangers ami evils, which I suucorelv t.clieved encompassed it, averted and remed.ed. , , ,, , , ,. . .....-...,. ..... V,,i,j ..I ,...U,,..M u-.. pecially iu the great department ol its dooiestie labor and industry should be lived and stable, that all might know how to regulate and ac commodate llieir conduct. And, lolly convinced of thu wisdom of the public measures, which you have enumerated, I hoped to live to witness, and to contribute to their adoption and estab lishment. So far as respects any official agency nf mine, it has been otherwise decreed, ami I bow re. speclfully to the decree. The future course of the Government is altogether unknown, and wrapt in painful uncertainty. I sh.il! not do the new Administration the injustice nf cnnt.'euir.ing it in advance. On tho contrary, I earnestly de sire that, enlightened hy its own reflections, and hy a deliberate review of all the great iuierests of i lie country, or prompted by public opinion, the benefit may be yet secured nf the practical execution nf those principles and measure.- for which wo have honestly contended, lint peace and honor may be preserved, and that thisyouno but great iiarion may be rendered harmonious, prosperous ami powerful. We are not without consolations under the event which has happened. The Whig parly has fully and fairly exhibited to the country the principles and measures which tl believed lies' adtpted to secure our liberties anil promote tin common welfare. It has made, in their suppott, constant ami urgent appeals to the reason anil ludgiuent of the people. For tnyt-elf, I have ihe IiIl'Ii satisfaction to know that I have escaped a '.'rent and fearful responsibility ; and that, during the whole canvass, hue done nothing incon sistent with the dictates of the purest honor. No mortil man is authorised to say that I held out tn him the promise ul any ofticu or appoint ment whatever. Whit now is the duty nf the Whic party ! I venture to express any opinion with Iho great- I ihlli loni'i;. I he luliire is enveloped in a veil impenetrable by human eyes. I cannot cniitctn. ilttett without leeluiL's of "re it ilisc'iiira!i)- mi.t. But I know of only o ie safe ueinaillhe Vic Mt tides of human Ine, public and private. and Ihat is conscientiously to satisfy oursclvo of what is right, and firmly ami undeviatingly to pursue il under all trials anil circumstance-1, confiding iu the great Ruler of the Universe fm ultimate sutcess. I ho Whins are deliberately convinced of Ihe truth and wisdom nf the princi. pies and measures which they hive espoused. It seems, therelore, to on', that they shou'd per. severe in contending for them ; and that, adher. ing to their i-ep.irate and d t-linrt organization, ihuv should treat all who have the good of then country iu vievv with respect and sympathy, anil invite their ro operation m securing lliu palriolii objects w hich il has been their aim and purpose to at couip ish. I lie an il v thank von, hir, for vnur fncndlv wishes for my happiness, iu the retirement w Inch henceforward best heroines me. Hero I hope tiienjov peace and tranquility, hoeking faithtiilli to perform, iu the walks of priva'e life, w h nnvei duties may yet- appertain In me. And I sh i never cease, wh. 1st luc remains, to look with lively interest and deep solicitude, upon the inovi'iueiit and operations of our free system ol Government, and to hope tha', under the smiles of an all-wii-e Pmvidpucc, the Republic may be ever just, honorable, pru-pemiis anil ureal.

I have it from pretty good authority that Ben. ton (called here the Western Urus) yester day, iu the presence uf several of Mr, Polk's Irieiuls, used the most threatening language to ward him. He said he got the nomination at the lliltitnnro (invention hy a d J fraud, ind ho would prove it ; and that if ho did not mind his steps, ha should have a rougher path to 1 read than oven Tyler. Tl1-.1l is canital for Mr. Calhoun's friends, anil if they onlv stimulate Benton to a little more savagoisnt,' Poll; will havo no alternative but to ihrow himself into llieir arms. Wright's for tunes are considered as very iiitimiloly wrapped up with Benton's; and although I doubt not iho tlisnositiou, anil even determination at pres. cut of Mr. Polk'a friends is, to mike his star first in the ascendant, this bullying may totally change their purposes. If Ronton is tn rise witliliim, ami ho an enemy, why both may be virtually so, and both therefore bo put aside. In iho meantime vnu may bo i.ssured Ihat Ihere will bo Malado'res enough, to flaunt tho red flag in the old Bull's face.

He was a member of Congress during General Jackson's Administration, and has never had a rebellious thought which in the slightest degree could disturb his parly relations or claims, lie is a good, easy, excellent tempered and excel lent man, who was lately in favor of Mr. Van flordi's pretensions ttilhc Presidency ; and be ing always very passive in tho hands of the Richmond politicians nf course they must sup port him. Ho is what lltpy call here, very em. nhati 'ally, a reliable man of course you under stand this. As to your great statesman inure .innn.
