The vole upon adjournment was !1 In tho affirmative ln71 in tho negative. The Jour nal was now read, and with les than one half of the members present, tho IIouso went into cotntnittco of tho Whole. Mr Illicit declined to address tho Committee, probably for the reason of tho bad treatment received at tbo hands of tho majority last nlghl. Mr Jefferson Davis, of MIm., (a friend of llio Administration) aillroiscd the committee in op. position to thn notice, but in favor of extending a territorial Government over the Oregon. Mr Houston of Alabama, spoko with a view of modifying the parly asperities which have sprung uii among bis own friends upon thin question, Mr II. alluded to Mr Pulli'a views as lo tho pro. priely of passing this notice with or without a territorial government. Mr Polk bad declared in 1829 that the notice should precede the bill establishing a territorial (lovernnionl, as the last would bo in violation of tho notice. Tho idea was remotely hinted at that the Preident mlslit vote a territorial bill which was not preceded by notice. Mr C.alhcart of Indiana, amused the House for .1 few moments with a speech lilted for llio stump, and probably borroi before coining lo Congress. Oregon and Texas wero regarded as twin measures, and as Texas had been born and baptized, ho desired to see the other twin child baptized alo, and Oregon treated as well by the South as Texas had been by tho West. Mr Martin of Tenn., was Iho next successful competitor for the floor. His speech wae of the comic serious or of llio solemn bombast. It certainly was interesting, for it commanded at tention; and comical, tor it made members laugh. Serious, it was also, for it made men gravo ; and bombastic, too, for it soared so far beyond the common imaginations of men, that few wero able lo romprohond its loflicBt flights. Mr Martin did not like an allusion made by u member from Viriima, to tho ce'e. He tlioretoro tried some- thing bettor, thinking perhaps of tho couplet which says : "Tim noblo an allow soars on hiali, Tho foolish Martin can but try." Mr Martin arraicned about every body who differed from him in opinion, and reprcssnting Mr Polk's District, ho seemed to speak with authority of the President. First, be did not liko what air Adams hail said ol tho Executive, upon the question of backing nut. Mr Adams repeated his remarks.

There has boen great excite nient in Auburn since Monday morning, in consequence of the inhuman Iligellatlon of a convict in the Prison by tho naui3 ol Charles S. Plumb. It was rumored on Monday that he was dead. Tho coroner was sent for and an inquest held. The keeper of tho prison, several phys icians, and oilier witnesses wero examinod. llie facta were briefly these : I i juuiu was a yuuii in in auum iw einey years j of age, rugged and healthy. On Monday oi last week lie lyft the shop wheru he was at work, went up stairs, broke two windo.vs and commenced shoving property out. The keep ers followed and secured him. lie was tent to the prison Physician to he examined, and pronounced by Iho keeper of thu shop iu which hu worked crazy. The physician was engaged, and beforu he examined Inn,, .Mr. Hiram llalli burn, principal keeper of Iho prison, sent for him to be brought hack lo me shop, and order ed him to bo whipped. According to tho testimony of Mt. Carey, the foreman nf the shop in which Piumb work ed, sixty or seventy blows witli the cat having six lashes, were inflicted upon the bare back of Plumb he was then washed wilh salt and water and sent In his bench in a slate of great prostration, l ucsday morning lie received -j or blows more with llio rat, on his lacerated back in all from 000 to 000 lashes wero lull cted on the bare back.

Iliurstlay er i nuay ho boaame insensible. and on Saturday night ho died. Tho appearance of the body to-dav. as ex hibited beforo the Coroner's Jury, was enough to chill the blood of any humane man. The body was bruised and cut from Iho neck lo tho legs. There is not a spot as broad as your linger which has not received the lash llie skin is rut and a considerable portion of the back is raw. A fever hail prevailed in Iho prison for a short time, and it is said by tho Phsiciau uf llio prison that ho elieel nt I Mat lever. On Monday, before being flogged, he was entirely well.

Tho Manchester, (Eng.) Commercial As sociation havo had an interview with the di rectors of tho East India Company, for tho purpose of enquiring about the success of iho cotton cultivation in India. It appears, from tho statements mad on this 'occasion, .that tho cultivation of cotton lias been unsuccessful in tho districts of Ben gal nnd Madras, but that in (ho district of Dharwar, it could bo cultivated as well as in Mississippi valley. It is also stated tint 15,000 acres wero under cultivation in (his district. We arc led to conclude, from these statements, that the English will be in si condition to compote with American Cot Ion before lone; When wo add to this the effects of a Locofoco tariff, or. rather. Locofoco free-trade, it is not difficult lo foresee that llio interests of the English Manufacturer will be thoroughly cared for at tho expense of our own.and our cotton-grow ers beside. If thu Enclish ever should nro. duco their own cotton, the south will have to "modify" its posiiion on the Tariff without a doubt.
