I have no disposition to give a full account of the bittle of Waterloo, but having had the nd vantage of a day spent with on intelligent gen tleman who was an actor In the battle, and ns many of your readers may not bo familiar with it, I will give a very brief outline.

To constitute it a three hnrecs-a-breast plough, place the rod in the notch on the land side of tho beam, and bring it to the extent of the Arc on the same side. For a single, or two horses tandem team, place the rod in the notch on the furrow side of the beam, and bring it to the extent of the Arc on that side. For a two horse abreast or oxen plough, place tho rod in the centre notch, and brirc it tn the centre of tlio Arc.

The allied nrmies beiran to assemble in Be! giuin early in April, 1S15; nnd the Duke of Wellington arrived nt Brussels nn the 4th of that month. The troops continued to arrive until June. Bluchcr was in command of the Prus sians, nnd took post on tho 11th of that month at Namur. to ho near tho British line. When Napoleon re-entered Franco from his prison at Elba, I5iiis the 18th, with Ids Court, lied to Ghent, to which place all the. ambassa dors from other Courts repaired. Ghent is about thirty miles from Brussels and forty from Wa terloo. On tho 1 2th intelligence; was received that Napoleon was passing along the frontier ; but Wellington had determined not to move until he knew nt what tiuiut the Fiench arinv would make the attack. It proved to be Charlcroi, a favorable position for defeating the Prussians and British in detail. Napoleon's intention to take the two armies by surprise was defeated by Bluchcr, who was apprised of the movement of tho French army at ten o'clock on the night of tho 11th, and tho I'm table land except nt Rio Frio, where the eleva lion of a mountain is to be overcome of twelve miles ascending and descending. At this point only, naturo has provided some little means of offence nnd defence, otherwise the road from Puebla to the city of the Aztecs is a level plain.

But, before I entirely leave this part of tho subject, I must say a word upon nn important Report made to the Senate, at the last session, by a cminittec to whom the resolutions, passed by the Memphis Convention, were referred. A di-linguished Senator from South Carolina (Mr. Calhoun) was Chairman of the Committee, and framed that elaborate Report. So far us he admits any thing done by Congress to have been rightfully done, and admits any degree of authority in Congress to do what has not yet been done, I concur with him. Tho rest I "reject; for I do ening them or removing obstructions, in order to render navigation upon them more safe for life and property ; and that, for tho same reason, Congress may construct canals around falls in rivers, in all necessary cases.

Under this head tho last Vermont Patriot gives I n column of the nlliost and weakest stuff that t we remember to have seen in that or any other i nevvspippr. It recapitulates the facts that on ' the 30th of January. 1317, Mr. Cocke, of Ten nessee, offered tc-"nlutions of thanks to Gen. I The 28 noes Here Lwfoco, aery one nf thnn ! Still another important f ict tint Is concealed by tho Patriot : nnd a fact which confirms our guess that the Lwfocm were onnocd to a vote of thanks. And now Mr, Cocke's resolution1, are before tho House : they arc handsomely drawn up ; thoy contain nothing objectionable, to any man, bo'he for or ngalnst the war; who or what is to prevent their ndoption by a unani mous vote 7 Lnt us go to tne record again : So two-thirds voting in the affirmative the rules were suspended. And the joint resolutions, being thus before the House, were read a first and sccondahne. Mr. Faran offered the following amendment, to com in at the end of the fust resolution ; Add the following words : " Engaged a; it was and still is hi n war roinnienced and forced upon ua by Mexico, Olid continued by us in dehmce of the honor nnJ in vindication of the just rights of the U. Staiea, assailed as both had been by repeated and flagrant nets on the p.rt of Mexico, rf insults, outrages, and, finally, of Invasion of one of the States of ills Union." And Mr. F. demanded the previous question. Mr Jacob Thompson desired to offer on amend ment to Mr. Faran's amendment. The Epeakr decided Mr. Thompson's amendment out of order, as the previous question had been called. M; Jocop Thompson's amendment wa3 then read tt th Clerk s table, as fol!o-.vs : " Provided. That nothing herein contiined snail b? construed into an approbation of the terms of capi tulation cf Monterey. Mr. Faran then accepted Mr. Thompson's Amend ment. The previous question was seconded, and the main question ordered to be put. We see now rcho proposed to encumber tho resolutions with unnecessary conditions. Mr. Faran is a Lorofoco, araid that the Whigs nre about to vote for these resolutions, and so he at onco moves an amendment on purpose to cut them off taking care to demind tho previous question so as to exclude both fuither amend ments and debate. And Jacob Thompson, too, another locofuco, is afraid that his brother Faran has not gone far enough, so ho proposes a pro viso, not to approve the terms of capitulation; in other word, to cr.xsur.E Grx. Taylor ton itiiosr terms: nnd brother l-aran helps the. Speaker out of trouble by accepting the proviso. Thus then we have a brace of locofocos con spiring to fix an amendment to .Mr. Cocke's re i oliitions of thanks, o as to censure lien.

And now what says Mr. Cocko to tins Kcad Mr. Cocko uesired to know if it was in order Taylor for good conduct at Monterey that .Mr. fnp ,. ,nr,mi,nrs f t,h House to vote for this Faran floco offered an amendment declaring ,.i,; ,,,n.,ffl,a.i ii,,,, triflimr and the war to have been forced upon ns by Mexico 5norii. with our bravo and gallant officers and in defence of our honor and vindication of our tidier", and rendering tho House perfectly ri- riirhts that Mr. Thompson otiercd a proviso thereto " hat nothing herein contained shall us construed into an anprnbation nf the term of ca pitulation at Monterey," which Mr. Faran accep ted and thereupon this amendment was car ried by the I-ncos, tho Whigs voting again-t it.

That improvements, such as have been mentioned, whether on the ocean or the gulf, on tho lakes or tho rivers, are improve ments which, from tlieir nature, arc such as no single State nor any number of States can tn ike, or might to bo called on to make. All idea of States undertaking such improvements is, in my opinion, preposterous. And, in the second place, ns all the revenues derived from commerce accrue to tho General Government, and none nf it to the States, the charge of im proving the means of commerce and commercial intercourse, hy such works as have been men tioned, properly devolves on the Treasury of that Government, and on that Treasury alone.

It was the good fortune of our little party nf Americans to liud the well-known guide, Ser geant Major Cotton, disengaged, and with him we viewed every important point, i nau, kept clear of baggage.

For although I have seen i w much to admiro in the character oftho Emperor ning. siers. tho iir.t..-h cavalry had not arrived when this strugglo took place. Tho Duke of Wellington was nearly taken prisoner. Among tho killed was the Duko nf Brunswick. On tlio afternoon oftho 17th a terrific thunder storm, with rain, mule the plowed ground al most impas-ablo. llor and some to tho girth thing that could be done for the gieat event that was to tako place the next d ly vv as effected, and at day break on the 18th of Juno all who wero able to move were m active motion, yet mere wcre in my so chilled with cold nnd wet that they could not form into line for some time. Between 9 and 10 o'clock the Duko of Welling ton passed along the line, and was loudly cheer ed. Soon after the Duke had passed, the bands of tho French troops struck up, und this was perhaps tho moment when Napoleon hid assem bled his generals to give them his orders. Shortly after tho tiring commenced, ani here seventy thousand oftho British and allied furces, with one hundred and liltv-rix guns, wero as sembled, and wit'iiu a mile seventy-two thousand men, with two hundred nnd forty-six pieces of ordnance, under rvapolcon. Tho hattlo went on, nnd many doubts nnd fears prevailed during that eventful day, which as not terminated until oqciock hi the eve- hen the French troops were defeated, Mr Cocke moved lo suspend the rules j and pen J- ins thnt motion, The House adjourned Congressional dole, p. 233.

Can it be LS h?, that there were r.muien of the same name? or is it possible that .Mr. Cocke could have pro posed theso resolutions of thanks in such honor able terms, and then on tho very next day, move a vote of censure I Ah the tact Is, this .nr. Cocko is a Whig fact which tho Patriot meanly conceals. 11' proves thanks and a gold medal ; and be it ob-erved, also, that he being a Whig, would " Ilcolvo unanimously" albeit tlio wiseacre of the Patriot tells us that the Whigs never would vote for a resolution of thanks. But somebody objected the I. lobe tells not who, and this being a Whig motion, we are Inclined to guess that the objection to a veto nl thanks camo from the licofoco side uf the House.

The question on tho amendment was decided by eas nnd nays, as follows : Yeas 1, nays 117. tilooe, ji. uuo, This is the same Mr, Cocko who had offered the original resolution of thanks, and resisted tho amendments which censured Gen.

And tins is the motion on w.iii-u mu founds it, f ihe and llitnsv charge that " the only proposition to cen.-uro Gen.
