The House his at last disposed of the question of reference of that part of the President's message which relates to the tariff Mr- Cost Johnson made a sound and able argum-nt in support of the prrpo sition to eeud thf subject to the Commirtee of Ways and Means, hut it had been decided in caucus that it should go to the Committee on Manufactures, and such was its destination. The next matter to be disposed of is the apportionment under the new census This is a questiou af fractions, principally, but it will necessarily involve a protracted dia'ussinn. It ts indispensable that this should be settled at an early day, in order that the State Legislatures, now, or soon to be, in cession, may be able to modify their laws relating to die election of members of Congress There have been no new developments respecting the probable nc ion of either House on the administration scheme of finance. The prevailing onin on i3. that both the whigs and democrat* will divide upon ir, an 1 its fate may be considered extremely doubtful. If a majority of the whig party permit Mr Clay to lead them oil" into opposition, indiaeriminate or unreasonable, they are ruined beyond the hop* of redemption. There will not be whigsenough in ihe next Congress to forma " corporal's guard." The democrats will sweep the ountry at the eh ctions to take place next summer or fall, more generally than in the late contest. e shall see whether th ; wh'gs have the tact to avoid the breakers upon which Mr. Clay seems determined to drive them. A ,few days indicate the shape which the political ele??ents, now in a state of chaca, are to take.

K'*e8 a lar8e ball. nt his hospitable mansion, in Georgetown, to-morrow night. Your readers shut) have fa description, just as minute as shall be respectful and agreeable to the Minister and his charming lady. There is a strange affectation of squeumishneas among a certain class of would-bc-ladies of ihe ton,both here and elsewhere, respecting published descriptions of piivate parties and balls. Everything depends upon the spirit and manner in which these descriptions are done. If Chey are writt< n by a gentleman, in good taste, they ?an hardly be unpleasant to auy of the persons concerned. There must be a certain delicacy of touch, a nice discrimination in arranging the figures in the picture, a careful suppression or concealment of names, and a reference to peculirritiea in accomplishments, manner or costume, which shall enuble the reader, familiar with the society attempted to be sketched, to recognize the individual. If all these things are duly observed, a lively and faithful representation of a public ball or private party, will alvays be read with interest and pleasure; and the (H*st sensitive and delicate lady cannot take exception to a description of a waltz or gallopade in which ?I grace mm uc tuij rA<;ncu umvcoai dUHiirailOIl, presided her name is not obtruded before the public This is our view of the matter, and unles3 it ahall be disagreeable to Mr. Ilodisco, we will endeavor to give an illastrution in Friday's paper.

Whatever others might thiok, In ' rould not acree with his honorable friend t'roH P Pennsylvania (Mr Buchanan,) and with h * friend P from New York (Mr. Tallmadge,) that il i* v v not an opportune lime to discus* thia bill ; In- t? I a that he had a du'j to discharge ts that reepe 1 nerubl -commonwealth which sent hint there, and * his desire war, as he could not vote for this proposi- jj Hon, that his State should knew his reasons whv. For thisj reason, then, he asked the in- J? dulgence ot the Senate for a short time. One ' of the early sets of the venerable patriot (Lien liar " rison) who was raised to the high office of thePresi- d dent of the United States, by the free suffrages el a 81 free people, was to affix his signature to a prociama- '' tion, which convened Congress to deliberate m die " great measures which called for the exercise of the 81 powers of legislation, and amongst them none were M 1 ' r ? i D more prominent man ine nnauces, me currency, anu r the exelirtnge* of the country. In pursuance ol that proclamation Congress assembled in the month of ^ May last, but he who by way of eminence, . and justly too, was called " the good President," was not here : the hand of Providence ^ had smitten him, and he was no longer in the land of the living; his body was moalderng in c yonder receptacle for the dead, and his spirit . was gone to God. Put the wisdom ot our anceetors had made provision for such an emergency, and the distinguished individual who was elected to the second office in the country by the suffrages of the , same free people, was found here exercising the of- " fice of Pri sident cf the United Slates; and on the '' assembling of Congress in May last, he called their attention to the fsubject which now form- " ed part of the features of this bill. Congress j* then, as was '? duty, took up that subject and con- 1 eiJered i'. They framed a bill which they honed and beloved would answer the purpose intended, ? but it did not meet the views of the President, and '! COp.*eq*?enily it did not become a law, They then Ji piade anoher bill, but that also did not succeed fie *would not go over the circumstancesconneced with v those measures! he would simply observe that they ^ exercised their constitutional duty, and the Presi- " dent exercised his l-enstitutional right, and they c adjourned with an intimation that duriug the t! interval?after time Itad been given for repose P and reflection, some plan would be marked " out which would not be obnoxious to cons itutional scruples, and would be free from objections on r account ot inexpediency, and w hile it was wise and 11 salutary, would at the same time restore to soundness a disordered currency, bring back exchanges to a uniferm level, and lift up and uphold the labor and industry of the country. They went to their q homes, fearing that no plat commensurate with t such ideas could be devised, though they ardeutly wished it might be so. They, however, hardly expected that any such plan could be proposed which * would be safe and salutary, and constitutional; but " they hoped for the best, and he could sav tor one I that he?and lie believed he could say for others that they?had come here hoping and ardently wishing that the disordered condition of the currency, the wretched state of ihe exchanges, the depression of the labor and industry of the country, which were now paralyzed, might cease, and that they might all unite 011 some measure which should he constitutional in itself, and wiae and expedient. Such were the sentiments with which they came there, and such had be? n their feelings from that time to the present. They came here, the plan which in the interim had been matured was presented to them, they had read it, they had caused it to be printed, they had treated it with the respect to which a document coining from such a source was entitled: they had examined it with sincerity, they had had it before them; or at least its outlines nearly a month, and that was the plan which was accompanied by a report drawn with consummate ability? a report which was calculated to produce a deep and lasting impression on the country?it was this report and th:s bill which he proposed, with the leave of the Senate, now to examine What did they find 1 A depreciated paper medium in every portion of the country They found their exchanges ruinous to those who were in business, they found labor and indu-try not meeting with an adequate reward, they lound confidence in State securities lost, aud general depression pervade every nart of the land; and under such circumstances they had presented to the country, as a relief for a portion o." those evils, this bill, entitled, " A bill amendatory of the several acis establishing the treasury department." This m*asare was proposed for adoption to those who for twelve years had been contending against executive patronage, and against executive power, and executive experiments?it was presented to those who h?d felt thes<- things severely, who had severely felt the pressure of former experiments: and it was presented as a p itinera for ? disordered currency mid exchanges (lis Iriena from (Mr. 13uchanun) intimated the other day, that this system was shadowed forth by a distinguished member who spoke here in 1837; about that,he (Mr Huntington) knew nothing personally, yet he begged to remind that Honorable Senator that it was shadowed forth long before that?it was the plaa of a former chiet magistrate of this country,and tiiiit At ti?e- timr ii mw ui'fl lavor from any body. Now, he was oppos-d to any such exreritnents astlii?, and he proposed to examine it with reference to the relation it sustains to the government, and to the exchange?, to the currency. and to the revenues of the country, and he intended to look ut its political asp-ct. Ai d, in the first place, as resp-cts its govermental relation, in his judgment, it is highly dangerous and unsafe: and as regards its effects on tin currency and finauc s, he feared it would be inefficacious; but as to its political aspect, lie considered that it would he destructive. Then as a govermental tHair, in the. first place, this bill proposes to create a Government Institution: and with the feeniior from Pennsylvania he would s iv that it proposes to establish a Gov rninentLUnk He It n i.vir Kir imno if uro a nnf ? nnawlovo?1 " K ? ... ? f>- ? * ? ? purposes; l?ut what weie its powers and itsfui ctions, h its qualities, and its elements !

It was also proposed to receive bank notes c in the payment ofdebts, eo that as a bank of deposite, e it took from individual", coin and bonk notes, and ~ fro'u the Collectors of the revenues of the country V And what more did Banks dol It was also a bank \ of issues; it used paper money, which was called R treasury notes, and certificate! of deposite?certili * cates for which the faith of the government wa> v pledged, which were intend -d to circulate.

He was nware v that time and distance were prescribed, but the , amount was unlimited, and it received a premium u on these operations.

One ' f its advantages was, that it was to be eh irtetd ' ar twenty years, that the people might nc 'om- ( lodate themselves to its policy ; but heie , fiteal agency was proposed, which to enable huincas people to settle down calmly, was to lie re- i *alable at nay time! But did they suppose (bat I ie people of the United States were prepared to t tile down square with such a law ! But this bill t ras objectionable became it umulgutna'es all the ' ublic and private rtsources of the government; 1 esides it would be unable to accomplish the t F-gulation of the currency with its limited ? teans; nor could it "enable the government i ebtors to pay the government duts," for the i imitation in which the government dues wera I a be paid, must have ?een obtained by its { quivalent, or perhaps it might bejobjected that it 1 rested one currency for the people aud am titer lot | lie government. And there were its piobuble hsets on the revenue. The government would be es|onsible for the mi.-talies of ageuis, the insolency of its bill drawers, lor lose by embezzlement, efdlcation, and forgeries, false coin and counterrit paper; and did they suppose tVat in an peration of eight or ten years, the amount would e small ? And could they go to the people nd tell them that tliey had given the power into he hands of any agency whatever io subject the*in nsuch responsibilities?

It was never contemplated by theframers of this Government that 'he proceeds of the aalasot the public lands were to form a por. ion of the p-rmanent revenue of the General Governneut. This was first suggested by Alexander Hamil on, when in his able repotl, he recommendedtb< findng and assumption of the debts of the Stuti a by the Goleral Oovernmenf.and propose,! to place the proceeds of ho public lands in the national coif ,rs.
