In evening he attended a meeting of the Tempera Society, in the Lecture Room of the Meditul ( 1 ge, and made a public acknowledgment of 8 ep he had taken, and, in a pathetic strain, tided the moving and immediate cause. In his culiarly eloquent style, this gifted man drew an palling picture of the loathsomeness of drunkent; and the debasement of the form which God m in his own image; but its effects went beyi physical, to the intellectual part of man, a conti plation of which had alarmed him, and hence public abandonment of the cause of so many wc Never has the cause of temperance brought to aid so brilliant an intellect, und his eloquence, n< doubtless, to be partially diverted from political p tisanship to the cause of man's moral elevation, v find ample room and verge enough for its high flights,'to charm and allure others from degradati to the pathway of social happiness, and intellect advancement.

The surtace of our great political ocean here coi ave tinues unruffled, but the undercurrent that is begii Co- ning to set in, affords evidence of the storms that a: in brewing. The recent appointments have not giv< very general satisfaction, aud the threatenisgs ther ve- at of the disappointed and their friends, are loud ai xi- deep.

It was read, and referred to the proper cot mittee,when appointed Mr Weir presented a p m lition from journeymen chairmakers, etc., of tl city of New York, praying for the abolishment labor in the State Prisons. \ a Mr. Loomi*, from the Committee to whom h "til- been referred the rules and regulations for the g Isq. vernment of the Hou-e, reported tit part. 1 rus committee report substantially the old rules, \vi M. slight additions and amendment.

Why, (said Mr M'M ) only last year,when a bill was ptissed vitally atiecting the rP" interests of the legal profession, one which struck at ice/ the ancient rules and usages handed down Ironi age us ! to age, not a lawyer was allowed to be on the comind lb-sides', there were a great many petitions ' received last winter, and no doubt there would be till*, in favor oi the Tnompsoman system, and then :>ub there was ihe Homopxthic, which would have to tan referred to that committee, both of which were looked upon as innovation by the regular, legalized school, and whether improvements or otherwise, era would doubtless be treated accordingly. He thought itu- that a special committee would do better justice to the subject. This brought out Dr. TavLon.of Onondaigua, who said that for himself he was not tena"'8 cious on the subject, but he would like to see the 'ho committee retained. He denied the justness of the iok allegation that the regular faculty, generally, were n(j opposed to innovation, if such innovatiou was an actual improvement. He was well aware, that the 'he science ol medicine, in accordance with the spirit of scr the age, was progressive. As for.the comparison in the stituted by the gentlemen,relative to the appointment j ol physicians, it had no bearing on the subject at all. The bill of last winter, alluded to, related ter. solely to fees, and of course it was obviously iuis!" proper to have any one on the committee who was itill interested in it, while it was morally impossible to , legislate in regard to the physician's fees. , Mr. Davezac said he would deeply regret if by in his silence it should be implied that he though* the en, science af medicine was not progressive. He thought it was most triumphantly ana gloriously so. ?' Operations were so often performed in New York;as 'ah to become quite vulgar; of such a nature as to astonish the world Look at Dr. Mott, who he was lty- proud to say, was the first surgeon, not only of this country, but of the world, lie repelled the imputalion that the faculty were opposed to innovation eat Even the best army had itsstragglers, but the bravest its. end best were always found marching at the head . of the column. So with the great and the learned in the science of medicine. They kept pace with the rapid march of improvement, rnt Alter some further debate the amendment was 0i_ agreed to, and the rules as amended adopted J" A message was received from the Governor, sub?'" milting the report of the Commissary General, and ers alluding lo the dilapidated condition of the Arsenal 0f in New York city. , Mr. Sackhamek gave notice of his intention to introduce a concurrent resolution, recommending the election of a President and Vice President, lo in, take place on the stnie duy, throughout the I nion.

As regard* matters and things in this our " Lack woods city," it is impossible to give a general review; consequently I shall take the moat prominent, in expectation of your notice, should no matter of greater importance (which with you is not unusual) arrest your attention. The weather is quite disagreeable ; winter in every shape and form imaginable has visited us. This day is very beautiful, however?the heave.,8 as serene and cloudless aa in midsummer, and nothing remains to testify to old winter's appearance amongst us, except the c< ngealed masses of mudded snow which cover the streets. A great anxiety prevails respecting the operation of our Legislature in its present session, and that ot the Governor elect (who is tobe inaugurated on Monday next) on the currency question. The present Governor, in his Message to the General Assembly a few days ago, has strongly recommended the compulsion of the banks to redeem their issues in specie. That is exactly right. If suspension is good, they have enjoyed it long enough. Then all the rotten concerns will have to show their deformity. Breakers, tremendous shoals of breakers, are ahead ; and, to the dismay of " Biddies" and small thieves, will shortly show themselves. So, friend Bennett, look out lor shipwrecks, or more properly bank-wrecks?smashing, crashing, explosions, bustitications, suicides, and a thousand et ceteras, by the wholesale. There is nothing surer than that one half the banks will go by the board. We expect a blow up in our institutions The winter of finance?for that too has its seasons?has set in here rather for the woise Our Mayor and his clique of abettors find,when too late, that his skill in lhat science has proved a curse to the business community . For, having collected the issues of our citizens in the private banking business, he opened a field for the foreign "shins" which come to town, with the power of locomotion; they are as drugs?the one halt of them are worse than Jacksonville Bank notes. Little Liiddle would find no difficulty in circulating his stuff here The railroad notes of Baltimore are about 10 a 124 P*t c?Bl discount. McLane's financiering will be tested shortly. The direct tax will be under consideration to-morrow at Hagerstown- A meeting of the Washington county farmers for that purpose has been called. In conclusion, I recommend to your care the witnesses in the Wiley case, from the Frederick County Bank, viz: the Cashier and two directots. Direct your frown on any down caster who may ut tempt to practice on their good nature. Don't look for repudiation from Maryland?that's out of the question.

Mr Pettis, in giving his testimony, stated that his agreement with Mr. Hartshorae was to borrow the .$750 for four days, and pay one percent, or for that tuue, which would render the transaction usurious, and defeat the plaintiff. This, however, was denied by another witness, and the questiou for the Jury to decide, as stated by the Court,was as to which testimony was most entitled to belief?if that of Mr. Pettis, then they would find for defend- I ant?otherwise for plaintiff, in the $1150 advanced. f There was quite a scene in court.

Mr. Pon presented a petition, as ?u understood, againit the bankrupt Law. Mr. Lma obtained permission to offer a resolution which was understood to be an instruction to the Committee on Peusioui to inquire into the expediency of making certain change* in the Pension Law. Several petition* of no public importance, were received without objection. Mr. Pavre offered a teriea of resolution* from the Legislature of the State of Alabama, upon the subject of a National Foundry. Mr. J. q aoami rose with much warmth and, object! d to their reception. Mr. Peers remarked that he could see ao reason why the reception should be objected to. Mr. J. Q Adam* (evidently bearing in remembrance some obstruction which he had met from Mr. Payne in the presentation of abolition petitions) with some warmth. If the gentleman will move a suspension of the rules of the House for the reception of all petitions, I will consent to it. Mr. Patxe said he had no objection, and accordingly he made that motion, and it was carried by a majority of 110 todMr. Kkrreut hoped petitions would be called for in order. The Speaker began accordingly with Iowa, whence petitions were presented by Mr. Doduk ; and afterwards from Wnconsin by Mr. Duuue, Senr.. and from Arkansas by Mr. Cross : aud from Alabama by Mr. Payee, Mr. Chapalar, Mr. Houston aud others. Mr-Miller, of Missouri, presented a petition on the subject ol the Naturalization Laws. A great variety of petitions were presented as the States were respectively called, and several bills were introduced,amongst which was .one to establish a Port of Entry at Chicago, which wo* read twice and referred. Mr Stokelct, of Ohio, presented a petition for the recognition of Hayti ; and one for the repeal of all law* wmch compelled the people of the free States to support slavery. Mr. Oeddinqs presented a petition from Ohio in favor nf the wheal Frawins interest, which he moved to refer to a sslect committee oltive. The motion wu agreed to. Mr. Ueddinus next presented a petition in the termi of pctitiom art?a tad previously, lor a law to prevent the traiiS]>?rtation of slaves coastwise, in vessels of the Uuited States. Mr. W. C. Johnson said the question involved the broad question of slavery, and he was understood to say, that he could not consent to its reception without debate. Mr. Wkli.eb inquired if it must not lie ever, if it was to be debated. Mr. W. C. J?hnson called the attention of the Speaker to the terms of the petition, but in the midst of ? much confusion, that he could not be heaid. Mr. Wise and Mr. Adams, rose and addressed the Speaker simultaneously, t Mr. Adams screetchcd out?Mr. Speaker, is the question debateable 7 The Speaker said, as it was a debateable question, it would lie over. Mr. Wise, whose voicowas heard above some half dozen others, who were addressing the Chair, enquired whether tho petition could lie over, unless it were received. The Speaker's reply was not heard ; but it may be inferred from the answer of Mr. Wise, whe aaid, he rose then to a question sllecting the reception otthe petition, to which he called the attention of the House. It not only prayed lor the repeal of all laws regulating or sanctioning the transporting of Slaves in vessels of the United States?which involved the commercial as well as the naval marine?but of ail laws regulating or sanctioning the " holding" of Slaves; that is, that the property in Slaves shsll b? cancelled.-And not only this, but it prayed that laws may be passed protecting the rights of all persons claimed or held as slave*, who may be constitutionally entitled to their freedom, by going, with the consent of their masters; beyond the jurisdiction oftke State ia which they are legally deemed to be slaves. Here was a new aspect of Abolition. A slave passing three leagues to sea, no matter in what vessel,wu out ol any " State, Territory or District," and therefore a petition prayiDg lor the aoolitioa ofsuch slave, did not come w ithin the rule ! Was then a slave, psssiug three leagues from Virginia, ij>n facto, free ? If this was not abolition, in its worst form, he knew n?t what was.lie asked whether the deckscl all our vtsselst whether in the commercial or naval marine, were cot parTof the Territory of the United States, though such vessel might be in the Mediterranean ? Mr Oeddinoi claimed the privilege, with the consent o! the 8|>eak?r of the House, to reply 10 the remarks o( the gentleman from Virginia. The petition which he had presented, notwithstanding the construction which had been given to it, would speak for itself; it prayed for the repeal of all laws regulating or sanctioning the holding or transporting of persons as slaves in vessels of the United States, sailing coastwise from one State to onother. It could not by any forced construction be said to pray for the abolition of slavery in the slave States. Mr. Wise.?look at the latter clause. Mi. tici>di>o3 ,reply was not distinctly heard, hut he was understood to ssy, in conclusion, that never since the establishment of this government had the transportation of slaves from Alrtca been sanctioned, and who ever did it, did so at his own peiil. uMr. Lewis Wihumi enquired whether this discussion was in order. Mr. Guddisios continued, but his observation was not heard in tne confusion. Mr. Wise again called upon the gentleman fiom Ohio to read the latter clause of the petition. Mr. (iEDDinoi replied that the gentleman from Virginia could get the /loor when no other man upon it would think of asking lor it y now he (Mr. Geiddings) asked that geuth man to permit him to make his n marks, and when he had done the gentleman from Virginia could take the floor, and reply if he thought proper.s He (Mr. Oeddiuga) asked permission to speak to the question of order, and to that he|would confine his rem irks. This petition, then, he asserted, asked for no interference,but that the petitioners might be permitted to withdraw from all interference with slavery ?it asked nut that slavery should be abolished, but that tbvy might withdraw their protection froirr all laws which sanctioned the transportation of slaves coastwise. That was the very question which was at issue, and he wished it to be understood that the Nerlk did not wish to Intel lere with slavery. Mr. Aeholp lose to a point of order, for he saw that this dobate might gu on for a month. Ue inquired, whether a debate could arise upon a point of order before tbere was a decision by the Speaker,and an appeal taken. Mr. W' Cost Johnsov said, according to the interpretation of the gentleman fr?m Ohio, (Mr. Oeddings,) the intention was to withdraw protection. Mr. Aaeoi.u interposed, and insisted upon having the hcisionof the Chair on the point he had raised. He laid he held petitions which he hnd been waitirg a week to present, and so long as this thing went on, he and his constituents were prevented froai being heard an a legal subject. Mr. VVnr ? I call the gentleman to order then, that the Speaker may decide. The Svkakir said,did any gentleman desired the chair to decid' i Mr. Wise?1 desire the ohair to decide. The SevAKVR then decided that the petition came within the prohibition, and could not be received. Mr. Hi bbiiios?What, not so muchlas prajr for protection for those who are constitutionally entitled to their freedom ? 1 move thnt that petition be referiedto the Committee on commerce. Mr. J CAMPHr.Lt.?I metre to lay it on the table. Mr. Oanuiect?And I call for the ayra and noes on that motion. Mr. Wisr hoped hi* friend from South Carolina, (Mr. Campbell,) would change his motion to one on the que*tion of reception. Mr. CiMi'ii ll assented, and the ayes and not* were ordered. Mr. Hoi mf.s ro'S to make an enquiry from the chair, and while he was making it Mr. J. Q Annn rose, and with some tvaimth, enquired if the ijuration was dehuteable. Mr. Holmk* replied that he was only asking for information. Mr. J. td-Adams?I am perfectly willing, but I ask for the liberty to answer him. Mr. Hoi at-a?I w as only asking the Speaker if he deCidtd that the portion of the message was receivable, whether there were any slaves "constitutionally eutitli d to freedom." Mr. J. U Adams?1 am also entiled to ask a question. I understand the gentleman fiom South Carolina has moved to lay the w hole petition on the table. The SessaiB?No; the whole petition has not been received. Mr.Ar>AM?-Wrll,half of it,then,has been received, I believe,by the decision of the Speaker. Now, 1 did undei stand the gentleman from South Carolina, and he will correct me it I am wrong,to move to lay the whole of the petition en the table. Mr. C umitl replied, that he understood a portion el the petition came withia the rule, and thertfore that part of the petition was not receivable. Mr. Adams (with great irritability)? He has decebd that. Their isatrick in the proposition - there i. atrick to catch vote*. Mr. CsMrarLL?The Chair is competent to decide w hether it i* in order. Mr. Abams?I nuit know what the Speaker unJrr stand* the motion was. Mr Horam* asked if tke question wa? debatable. The Srr.Aar.a *aid the question wa*. en laying thf question of reception on the table, and if there w a* dohate, it must be on that. Mr. C*Mrav.LL said any motion could be received until the Hons said otherwise. Mr. Abas-* -I deiire the gentleman to put his motion i . w. t i g. 1 ran act vote as it i* now put, became therf is a trick nit. I desire him to put it in writing, tha* 1 m-, *? what it i*. Mr. C Mr a* ll?T presume it if understood. Mr. (losnos ?I w ould a?k if the latter clause i* not al I Italy itceived? Mr \V. <5. JtHusn* replied that when the petition wa* ir?t r>resatit> d he objected to its reception, and when thr spi o'f ?p derided that j art ws? not rscrh able, the gentle In u fr?v. '?ilo J(.5ucdthot the remaining ps>-t Si 1 be receivm, on m bleu the gentleman Irom Suulh Carolina moved to lay the question of reception on the table. (Criea of queaiion, question.) The8rr?*sa directed the Clerk to call the names on t the question of reception. The Cnu-(Beginning alphabetisall) )?"John Quiacey Adams." Mr. Adams (in much excitement) cried at the top of his voice?Mr. Speaker, / will not answer as it now stands, for 1 beliere there is atrick in it. (Much confusion.) The Srctaaa sai I the list mutt be called, and it was for the House to decide whether the gentleman should be excused. The vote was then taken, but before an announcement was made of the result Mr. Matiiist said that Mr. Gordon, and Mr.Bowneof New York, were both within the bsr, and for some reason, best known to themselves, had refused to vote. Ha hoped the House would compel them to vote. Mr. Bowm replied that when his name was called he was in conversation with a friend, and wu not conacioua that he had been called. He waa perfectly willing to vote, he never " dodged," and ha now voted "aye." (Laughter.) Mr. Mathiot moved that Mr. Gordon be compelled to vote. Mr. J. G. Ki.ovo asked what the penalty was, provided the gentleman did not vote. The SrcAKEa said it was in the power of the House to exercise its authority. Mr.J.'G. Klovu. What, when there was no proviaiou of that sort 1 The Clkbk then sailed " Samuel G >rdon." Mr. Oordoii. Here. (Laughter.) A Voice wu heard obaerviug " you must rote." Mr.Oaaaaa. What la the queition? (Laughter.) The Speaker informed the gentleman from New York that the 37th Rule of the Home re<|uired him to vote , and then explained the nature ot the question. Mr. Adams ?The Speaker says the question is on laying part of the petition on the table ; I did not understand it so. Tko Speaker.?The speaker did not say so now : ho said theio was the question of reception of the latter part of the petition, and the motion was to lay the question of reception on the table. Mr. Adams ? if it is a question of reception, every one who has voted '-aye" has voted for the reception? (laughter.) The Speaker.?The gentleman from Massachusetts is not in order. Mr. Adams.?Well, I believe I am in order, (laughter) I wantto know what the question is. I refused myself to answ er. The SrEAEca.?The gentleman from Maasachnsets is net in order. The question before the Housee is on the refusal of the gentleman from New York to vote. Mr. Gordon and some half dozen other gentlemen were crying "Mr. Speaker." Mr. Llwis Wilmams hoped order would be preserved. Mr. Gordon.?I ask then to be excused from votingLoud cries of "Its too late"?and " why don't you vote?") The Speaker proposed to announce the vote as it stood before further proceedings were had. Mr. Arnold desired that the gentleman from New York should vote first. Mr. Wuc inquired if ihe rula was not imperative upon all. Other gentlemen were on the floor at the same time, but Mr. Oordon removed the difficulty?by voting " aye." (Criei of " well, that's settled.") Mr. Wise thought the House shoald have begun at A before it got to O, and should compel another gentleman to vote. * The Speaker inquired who tke gentleman was. Mr. Wise said that the Speaker had named him; it was the honorable gentlemau from Massachusetts, (Mr. Adams.) Mr M.vthkot. I move that the rules be enforced against the gentleman from Massachusetts. Mr. Stanip.t saidthat it was known that the gentleman from Massachusetts was not to be overcome in that way; they had tried it too often. (A voice, "then he ought to be turned out of tho House.") The Sfkakek then announced the vote to be, ayes 1M, noes 110; so that the motion to lay the question ot reception on the table was carried. Mr. Mathkot. Mr. Speaker, I again move that the rules be enforced against the gentleman from Massachusetts. (Cries of oh 110, it's too lute.") Mr. Gf.ddinos then said he had a petition to present, which differed from the one just disposed of: it was a petition from a number of respoctable elector* of the State of Ohio, praving that proper steps may be take to repeal all laws, a ad the alteration of all constitutional provisions by whioh the people of the free states,the federal government, and this nation, are in any way bound to countanance, protect, or aid in any manner, in supporting and continuing the institution of slavery, or keeping human beings in bondage. Mr Wise asked if that did not come wit'iinthe rule. Mr. Gkodixoi replied that the Speaker would|pcrceive, it only asked that the people of the free States should be exempted from protecting slavery If the gentleman from Virginia admitted that they were bound, and could not be exemp', he would of course admit the sonstltationality of the free States to abolish. It was a question, whether the people of the free States were to be bound to support slsvery. Mr. Wise.?I object to its reception, and I move to lay the question of reception on the tuble. Mr. Adam??i rise to s question of order, and that is wbetherfthe gentleman from Virginia has the right to make a motion and then move to lay his own motion on the table. Mr. Wise?I did no such thing. I moved to lay the question of reception on the table. 1 know what I amk very well. f Mr. Campbell explained that the question of reception was be " ' 1'' .. *?"'-> * -itmoved ' '1 Mr. ginia t r> discnsi , . and to'."

The Ayes and Noes weie then taken and resulted as follows:?Ayes lus, Noes bfl, so the question of reception was laid on the table. * Mr.Gmpiaos, htvii.g presented a number of petitions of no publio interest, then said he had one signed by 33 citiaeus oi Pennsylvania, praying Congress not to admit any new state iuta the Union whose constitution tolerates slavery.
