What la to lie Done i Trie country is in danger? what is to he done 1 T ie reputation of this republic is menaced by annrcliy?why are the people asleep 1 In all the large cities where the banks are suspended, the spirit of misrule prevails, and mobs threaten to break up the foundation* of society, tear down buildings, and disgrace the common country. Where are the people oi intellect and intelligence ' It is time?it is full tune?it is high time, that great movement ot the peopie should take plac iu this til ghty metropolis, as a guide and a light for the whole nation to rally under. Only look around us and mark the deplorable tveuts of tli- day. Cincinnati is under the dominion <?f i mob for d lys. Philadelphia is threatened hourly with insurrection against her suspended banks. Baltimore is on the edg~ of a volcano?New Orleans is in a state of great and growing excitement, which will probably end in insurrection. The whole country. where the banks are suspended, sectns to be on til- cage of revolution, riot, disorder, blood and dis-organiz&tion. Butphisisnot the worst?while the country is in this deplorable situation, growing out of the disorders of the currency, and in the revolution in commercial sffairs, what do we see in Washington 1 What do w j behold in the cap.tol of the republic! What line of conduct do the representatives of the people pursue 1 The spceucle at.the Capitol is evpn worse than in J'ailadelphia or Cincinnati. Both Houses of Congress are disgracing themselves in a higher degree than the mobs apparently justly excited by the sublime knaveries of :he financiers. At the wesseru end of the Capstol we have an honest patriot aa Chief Magistrate, and a cabinet of able councillors. They have performed their several duties in the ablest manner, but Congress paralyses their efforts, and renders nugatory all their efforts to restore order in public affairs, to reanimate the credit of the Treasury, or to furnish a currency for the use of the whole country. How long is this state of things to be borne 1 Let trie honest and moral people rise in their majesty, and demand that the representatives of the people shall go to work and perform their duties, or adjourn and go home.

It has already occupied nine days A day and a hall was spent in procuring a jury from 341) jierson?; six days were spent in hearing the evi dence; 79 witnesses were examined for the prosecution, and 11 for the defenee. A day and a half liai been consumed by three of the counsel in sum ming up, and Mr. Whiting, who closes, will occupy ?he whole of five hours this morning, till the recess. Afier that Judge K?-ut will deliver his charge, and the cause will go to tiie jury about live or six o'clock; about dusk thi* evening. .^uch is the present .state of t,ie case. What the verdict will be, it is impossible to conjecture. The readers of the " Herald" have ha J the best and fullest account of this testimony spread before them, in our columns, from day to day, and are able to udge for themselves. We hive given correct outines of Mr. Emmett's and Mr. Smith's speeches; one for and the other against the prisoner; and shall give the same of the speeches of Messrs. Selden ..-j ,i.? ir ..i i /u i?_\ OUU tt uillllg, 111 MIC ll lulj lU'lIIUIIUW / | with the tallest and most correct report of the charge of Judge Kent, which, from all the circumstances iu the case, will, doubtless, be one of the mast int eresting ever delivered. Altogether. this has been one of the inost singula1" trials that ever took place in this or any ether country. It throwa the Peter Robinson affair far i nto the shade. There the wife of the murdered Suydam was not brought into Court. Ilut here, tiret, we have the widowed wife of the murdered Adams placed upon the stand; th?'n the dead man's coat cut to piec-s, held up before her to be identi fied by h-r- Teen the wedding ring taken off the dead mau's finger is put into her hand, and she is called on to, and does so by tryin;); it on her own linger. Next we have the box?the murdered man's coffin?and the awning?the dead man's shroud?brought into Court?reeking with I . refaction : and turned over, and mea.-ured, nud shaken, and deliberately displayed before the jury, whilst tiie lid of the Cofti i, soaked in blood, i< burnt op to light the lire in the watch house. Next we have the victim of seduction?'lie wifeless mother of Colt's searce breathing infant, placed on the -land to tell how her re lucer looked, and slept, and ate, alter he hai killed his fellow man ! As if this ? ? not enough, we have a horrible array of doctors deputing about th" hall a doz-u holes in the rcull cf the murdered man?and some sivearidg lhat he kss killed by a bullet?others by a h itchet. And a?if this eauld not suffice, we have the murdered body of Adams dragged fiotn the cliarnal hou*e at noon day? th? head cut off from the *houldeia,and the scull?tit* horrtbly mangled ecull of Adams wrapped up in a newspaper, carried coolly under a doctor's aim into court,and placed upon the corner of the judgment seat ?t ghastly witness for his former friends and foes to g?u:e apon with horror and dismay- Last scene but one, we have part of '.he clothes, and the contents of the pockets of the dead man at the time he was killed, dug out of the privy into which they had been thrown at th; time of the mutder? keys, half dollar, pencil*ca?e, and all, brought into Court, and hauded round for the inspection and edification of the jury. i^wuy, 10 cap me ciimav 01 ru- -ir'iotr-, evenu ful history," the prisoner's counsel rises at tlir last hour, and reads a full confession of the whole affair, wr-tteii by Colt himself And well-dressed ladies ?r i ding into Co art by doaen.- to ?e and hear tl e wnole affair.

The surplus, if any should remain after the deficiency from such au exemp tion shall have been supplied, shall be appropriated to the gratuitous supply of boooks and stationary for the pupils.

There is a consolation in talking over one's griefs?but still, if we were the Governor, we would do as Torn Bender took hanging?"grin and hear it." TiieRbv- Mr. Van Zandt.?The Ecclesiastical Court at Rochester, before which the second trial of this reverend sinner has been held, have closed their proceeding?, and it is said that Hurt are for acquitting him?fico for condemning him. Their decision is to be communicated to Bishop Delaney, who determines the Question whether the Reverened penile man is to leave the pulpit or to remain. The Court meets again in Oswego, on the second Tuesday in February. If Bishop Delaney cannot decide till he knows our opinion?we hereby state our belief that the Rev. Mr. Van Zandt should be forgiven and retained. He will preach better sermons before than after?and he has a long life yet to repent and make up his accounts with Heaven- Besides, we can safely say to the pious clergy?" he that is without siu among ye, pick up the first brick and let fly at him." Religious Movements.?The Rev. Asa Mahan, the perfectionist preacher of Oberlin, who has been preaching tor the last two months in this city, at the cofherof Delaney and Chrystie streets, has accomplished more than could be reasonably expec ed.? He has drawn off frotu the different Methodist and Presbyterian churches, (to say nothing of sinners, Universalists and Unitarians) about four hundred souls, who are determined to form themselves into a new society, the name of which is not yet determined on. Some of the pastois of the churches who have lost members, are up in arms about it, and have told their people that if they attend Mr. Ma* ban's preaching, they will lose their souls. We propose that an immediate reconciliation take place between Mr. Hatfield (Presbyterian), and Sawyer, (Universalist). They are both fiue fellows, and are laboring alike to save souls from ruin. May the Millenium soon come, that universal peace may reign in all hearts. To the Editor or the Bottom Transcrh't ?Tremont Housi. Thursday morning, January 37th, 1842.?Sir: I observe in some of the papers a statement respecting Miss Caroline Hensliaw,the mistress of John C. Colt. The statement thst Jtfisi Htntkate is the (laughter of Gen. De Wolf of Cuba, that she tvas born in Providence,R. I., married to a gentleman of this city from whom she eloped with Colt. Nothing can be more untrue nor outrageous in its baseness of chat acter. Miss Heushaw.or the person known by that Dame, is in no w ay related <o the fdmily of Gen. De Wolf. John C. Colt never saw but one daughter of Gen. De Wolf, and she is the wife of his brother, Christopher Colt, Jr., a gentleman of the highest respectability. Thu lady upon whom a most foul attempt has been made to fix this damnable calumny, sustains an irreproachable character, and is one of the brightest and best ornaments of society?and none but the blackest of all human hearts could have conceived the design of inflicting so base an injury upon an innocent and viituoun family. IYrinit me, 111 the absence of Gen De Wolf, and in justice to the lacerated feelings of th? lady thus grossly and maliciously slandered, to pro nounce'the statement false in every particular?a most cruel and wanton outrage?whsse author deserves the severest nunishmrnt the law and the nublic mind can inflict. Respectfully your*, EDMOND B. OREEN. The black-hearted and inhuman dander, to which the above refers, was not published in any respectable paper in New-York- It first appeared, we believe, in one of those depraved sheets which rise up like exhalations about town, und are conducted by persons who have taken their degrees in State Prisons or Penitentiaries,and are devoted to the chronicles of depravity, filth, and disgrace.

The weather haa moderated again ; and from the mild and genial state of the atmosphere, we may again imagine ourselves transported into the month ot May. The ladies hav; made their appearance in great number?, and their attendance in the Legislative halli has been very large. They have been repaid too, for although there has been but little business done, there has been a great deal of talk, and the debates of to-day in both houses?the Assembly in particular? have been characterised with more piquancy and vivacity than any that have occurred as yet. In the A<?embly,a great many petitions were presented and referred; alter which Mr. Hoffman call, ed for the consideration ol the resolutions offered by him vesterdav. calline UDon the State odicers for a liquidation report. After some blight amendments, they were adopted, and sent to the Senate for concurrence. Mr. Tamblin then offered a resolution to the effect that Monday the 7th day of February, if the Senate concur, both houses shall go into joint ballot for the purpose of electing a Secretary of State in place of John C. Spencer, resigned ; A Comptroller in place of Jahu A. Collier, who is hereby removed; an Attorney General in place of Willis Hall, whose term of office will expire; a Treasurer in place of Jacob Haight, whose term of office will expire ; a Commissary General in place of Adoniraui Chandler, who is hereby removed; and a Surveyor General, in place of Orrillc L. Holley, who is hereby removed.

Also, on the next legislative day thereafter, both houses shall select Canal Commissioners, in place ot the six present incumbents, who are hereby removed. The resolutions being joint, under the rule lie over one day. The report of the Bank Commissioners was receivedMr. O'Suluvah reported in favor of the bill repealing the New York Criminal Court bill, which, together with the report, was ordered printed. Mr- Ta>ibi.ix, from the Committee on Public Punting, reported a bill for the appointment of a Slate Printer, and the regulation of the public printing. Whether the bill will pass, or if it did so, could go into operation, I am not prepared to say ; but a more just and essentially democratic disposition of it was never proposed. The prominent features of the bill are as followsIt proposes that the State Printer shall be chosen in the same manner as is the Secretary of State, and any vacancy shall be filled in the same manner. That the printing of all legislative documents, fcc. shall be given to the State Printer, or any other person or persons who shall contract to do it, giving proper security, at prieee at least ten per cent more favorable to the State than are paid at present That the contracts shall not be for a longer period than one year, and shall run out on the 30th of September in each year.

The committee of the whole took up the bill for the incorporation of the village of Chittenango, Madison county, and a most sprrited debate ensued, which continued until the close of the sitting. In resuming the discussion, Mr. Lott, of Kings county, said that there was something more than merely the incorporation of a village involved in this discussion ?there was a great principle, whether property should be the test of merit. He was opposed to granting exclusive privileges to this particular village, and so it would be if the amendment, striking out the wordssubjeot ts taxation, in the enumeration of qualifications requisite for voters at village meetings, was not adopted ; as upon examination he had found ihat almost overy charter granted to villages was without this odious qualification. Gentlemen objected, on the ground that it was unjust to allow rii individual to vote away the money of another one. This amerdment would leave the qualifications the same a* at town meetings, where every voter took part, whether it was proposed to lay a tax or any thing else. Mr. Smith, of Genesee, said it was n principle which he hoped would never gain ground in this Stat", to allow the interference of a man who had not the slightest interest in the matter, in the disposal of hi? neighbor's property. He looked upon it as mere bucaaeering. He held that only those should participate in the imposition of taxes who were obliged to pay them. This bill proposed nothing more?it dia not interfere in the slightest with the elective franchise. Mr. McMukrat contended that such principles were worthy only of the Hamiltonian age. Who paid the taxes 1 only those whose names arc on the assessors' roll I No, sir?it was the laborer, the hard workingman?the huge paw, whodid it It was the hand of industry?industry, hard working industry ?not speculative industry, who paid all our taxes.

Mr CitArriELD, (the Speaker) ro?" and said, that he would tell hie y??ung friend from New York, that his democracy had not as yet taken such strides as to admit that all men were created equal in the extensive sense taken by him. That applied to their political rights, which were not born to them,but created. His democracy had uut as yet taken such strides as had his friend from New York, who favored the extension of the franchise, even to negroes. If all men were created equal, why was not the gentleman endowed with the faculty of clothing fact in plain unvarnished speech, instead of in tropes and figuies, wandering about culling a noeegv here and a boquel there, losing sight ot his subject in the maz- of words.

WAMIISonw, Tlll/RfUAY, J A* B A'ler the presentation of petitions in the SeB during the morning hour, the bill to repeal the pB rupt Law again came upon its third reading! was supported by Mr IUyurd and Mr. Hrn'.on,! opposed by Mr. Choate. I Mr. Bataid complained that on on this suB 'rhetoric had run into extravagant hyperbole. TM had heard much of live hundred thousand perB being shackled and manacled, with gyves on iB arms, and all thia todescribe the condition of a B who had voluntarily and freely contncted obll tiona which he waa unable to pay, and from thB ture liability to pay, which the law will not I charge him, and this extravagant picture was urB too while there waa not a Suite in the Union wtfl had not provided laws by which, in suchacoB lion, he could eacape from incarceration ?n giB up his property. There had also been a monrjfl exaggeration in the number of bankrupts. By I last census the whole number of persons engege<fl commerce, manufactures, or trade, waa nine iB dred thousand, and yet they were told that thB were 5O0,000per?oDs in a state of bankruptcy. In < B Britain, which was emphatically " a nation ofshfl keepers," during a period ol l<w years?from 17(kB 180JS?a period the most thriving and progperouB British commerce?there had been but 11,000 bafl nipts. He next traced the history of the bankrfl system, in prove that it was instituted tor the Del fit of the creditor, and waa his remedy against fl partiality of the debtor. TH?? >i? M - ?? vujvwt Vi lilC |?J1 enl law originally was to discharge the debtor fr imprisonment, but the object of the bankrupt I was the distribution of the effects of the debtor the benefit of the creditor, and to arrest him in career of prodigality. The first insolvent lew v passed in i.ngland, 1769, and was'called the "Lo Act," by which it was provided that if any per who was taken in execution for a sum les^ in uio than ?100, consented to give up ail his possesstc he was discharged from imprisonment. But so nacious were the framera of the law of the righti the creditors, that the discharge was made dopei ent on theconsentof the creditor, but if the credi persisted in keeping the insolvent in jail?tb then said that the creditor shonld pay t shillings and sixpence a week for the int vent's support. But on the contrary this 1 was but a sponge, to be used by the debtor, wipe out his debts and obligations, and the debti men who had been "guilty, in many cases, the most wanton extravagance. It went beyo and contemplated an object entirely different fr the system which must have been in view of (ranters of the constitution, when a provision * incorporated in that instrument to give Congrr power to pass a uniform system of bankrupt throughout the United States. Mr. Ciioat* said the retrospective feature of ; bankrupt law was the only one on which he b ever felt a moment's anxiety; but he sustained it 'he first plana, because he represented a credi State, ana because that State, on the ground of* interest, adhered to the retrospective feature of i bill. Massachuaeta had manifested a disposition try the bankrupt law; her Legislature had pa* resolutions in its favor twice, numerous petitu had come from her citizens, who had property the amount of at least $30,000,000 entrusted out every State of the Union. He did not stand th? to put it to the account of a romantic human i that Massachusetts favoured a retrospect, bankrupt law ; but to a keen, far sighted e< interest. As the law now stands a vast m of assets was beyond the reach of the ct editors, 1 low them where they would; they were buri in the earth by ten thousand contrivances, he w sorry to say, of fraudulent instrumentality that, t debtor might have something to buy his liberty a have something to support hi* family. But pas*- tl law?let it go forth offering liberty to these the sands of debtors, and what would be its operator Iastantly 'the assets which were buried beneath t earth would be disinterred, and the creditor won get something where now he got uothiu and the debtor would get liberty and be resu ed to the p'.nroits of commerce. Massachuse looked to these ransomed debtors to become I customers. But in the next pi ice he should vote I the retrospective feature of the Bankrupt Law, I cause he thought they had a moral right at a j vernment to pass a retrospective Bankrupt La and because tney had a strong, clear case of pub policy for passing it. The gentleman from l>e ware (Mr. Bayard) had said that the bill was uujw because it was to be nsea as a sponge to wipe outi isting debts. Iu that objection there wasgreat weigl and if it were not over borne by a great amount public usefulness hechould hesitate to give it I support. At a period when the public mil was relaxed and debauched?when the cry "repudiation" rung in their ears?it was i a light thing for the government to wipe ont en < tstingdebt, even of a dollar ; and if it was not ov borne by ten thousand larger considerations of < pedieticy, he should be half inclined to go against But he entreated the light toned morality of t Senate to remember that this objection was r peculiar to the Bankrupt Law i every insotvt law that the world ever saw, was exposed tot same objection ; but sound policy demanded it It was amongst the duties of a government enforce me ngnis 01 dumokj ana 10 reus the debtor from the hopekss stale of poBti ti?n in whieh so many were now found. He, the f?re, advocated the bill as a work of humanity. There was nothing txiiiliratiog in our aflai whether they looked at home or abroad ; , :>ro there were increasing chances of war?at t:oi doubt and distrust; destroyed confidence, d:-tract councils, and discordant voices of those that thoi be brothers ; and yet above all these tight a sounds, if the law was allowed to go into ion e the let February, the sweet silver trump of juOil would be heard with the morning's dawn, an e-pj through the morning air, proclaiming delivran 10 the captives ; and oh how much would this to enliven, if not to dispel the gloom, which around pre v tiled. Ma. nani-oa's reasons were not given beyond reference lo the arguments on which he rein when he introduced his bill to postpone the opei lion ot the bankrupt Law ; for while he wa- * ct i the (hiesliold of his subject, apprehensive < f a k> speech, and coerce intn into silenc-.-. it ihe question might be taken, the whig Sen .to lelt the r-enafe Chamber almost in u body, in t expectation, doubtless, of being called iu when t Senator had finished The course pursu- u m*g possibly satisfy him that they were not desirous hear more, but his friends look advantage of t: c euinstance, and carried a motion te adjourn, ? ik gives him to morrow to deliver his speech, am. f one day longer leaves the many thousands r si peuse, whose hopes will be consummated or i -t hv the action ot the Senate.
