Arc. Debate* In t'ongre**?Deruugeni-<il of the -Matt. Our readers were very much disappointed yesterday, in not receiving the report of the debate in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, in which Mr. Arnold, the fire eater from Tennessee, made a great speech. TKk J i inntvii nf in<*nf wna mtiaiwi Kir fK* nnnti nun I "J mismanagement of the mails between Washington and New York. Our reports of the debates in Congress, aro so life-like, so graphic, so admirable, so original and interesting, that the public feel a most intense disappointment, when they are deprived of them at their regul ir morning meal. These sketches ?daguerreotype reports? w II have a greater influence id giving dignity and common sense to ihe deliberative assembly of the nation, tnan any of the dull, prosy ones tha:ever were attempted. They have already created a perfect mania in this latitude, and they will continue to do so, to the end of the session. The disappointment in not receiving them is, therefore, intense. What oan be the matter with the Post Office 1 A Pheonant Sign?The new Republican General Commit tee.?We understand from good authority ihat, in the recent election for the Taminany Committee of this city, the " young democracy" have entirely triumphed over the " old hunkers."? Full details will be given hereafter. In almost every ward two tickets were run. In the 16th, 17th, and other wards, the "old hunkers" were defeated by large majorities. This election is deeply important in the next Presidency. The " old hunkers" are generally for Mr. Van Buren, and the restoration of the Bourbons to lKiwer?the " vounv rlemoeranv" are nfiiinul Mr Van Buren's restoration, alleging that two runs are enough for any loafer. The " young 'una" are in favor also of " one term," and are particularly hostile to restorations of defaulters and broken down |>oliticians. Their list of candidates are Cass, Calhoun, or Tyler?but not Van fluren, by a Ung shor. Great fun is expected from thiscommittee. Who is to be chairman 1 our friend E. F. Purdy, or Eli Moore 1 Do tell. Casks in Bankruptcy?Attempt to Indict?We understand that some of the pious bankrupts who have paid their butcher's, baker's, and boot black's bills by taking the benefit of the act, have been attempting to get the Herald indicted for the daring eftrontr.y of publishing correct abstracts of their schedules. This effort is almost equal to the indictment lo.ind against us by a grand jury in Yates county, for the awful offence of showing up (without alluding to any individual) the credit system of busine.-- in all our western towns, which has ruined so many good men?and also for imputing abolition views to a certain congregation ?r church in Penn Yan. The opinions which some persons entertain of the liberty and rights of the press, are very strange in these la ter days. The greater the delinquent, the more biiter he isagainstthe press. In relation to the cases in bankruptcy, we have had no other purpose but liiat of the public good. The Judges of the rr a ? U-.L :_ '? aL > ij. o. v uuui tunuurin mc opinion mai wr nave a legal right to publish correct abstracts of the cases 1 in bankruptcy, and we shall go on and do so, in ' spite of a!! threats to the contrary.

With reference to the remark of the " Chronicle," we assure them hat of every slip or extra issued from this office, one is seut to them. If they don't receive them, the lanlt is in the Poet Office, which really appears to be managed most abominably of late.? Will not : ! .e President apply some final and effectual remedy 1 Nkw r.amsH Consul roa Nkw York,?We under? land that Anthony Barclay, Esq , has been appointed the new British Consul in New York. Great efforts had been made by Lord Ashburton to appoint to this office one of the " Baring family," but on a pro|*r representation being made on the subject, I Lord Ab-rdeen gave the place to Mr. Barclay, who ' will in;ke a capital consul, and a liberal public ' agent. j VllUUNIA I tSTITTJTl FOR THK DraF and DUMB ? J From he fourth annual report of the visitors of this . invaluable institution, it appears to be in a very prosperous condition, as far as regards the progress < and well ire of its interesting inmates. But we regret to observe that the appropriation from the literary fund is inadequate to effect the completion of the buildings. We trust that the touching appeal on this subject in the report, will not be uttered in vain. It is really astonishing to mark the evidence pre" sented in this document of the progress of the pupils in the cquiretnent of a knowledge of language, and the art . Their moral and intellectual natures are ' vid n ly subjected to careful and patient culture, | and it ,* im|?os?ible to avoid desiring for this and all kindred institutions the most enlarged measure ot support and success. I Thk Musks Turning 3odek.?The drunken poets 1 and their drunken efiusions are to be all used up this j evening in Concert Hall, Broadway, by Wallace, the h indsome Kentucky orator and poet. His speecliea on temperance have already turned the wits of half the city. And us Wallace, sober, is to attack Wsllace drunk, there is no doubt the gathering will be immense. Willy, don't forget to show how much of your own far lamed poetry has been written under the influence ot the jolly god. Wallace, be honest as you are brilliant. We will go to see. United States Senator for North Carolina.? It tea ly looks now as if the legislature of North Carolina intended to elect a Senator to Congress. On the last ballot, Saunders, the Calhoun candidate, came within three votes of an election. Holiday Gift*.?Colman has got quite a bewildering variety of gifts for the holidays, in the shape of beautifully bound and splendidly illustrated annuals and other works. It is quite a treat to inpect the elegant tancy articles which he has also on hand. ( Oysters, Arc.?Young Jack Downing, 329 Fulton I street, two doors east of Broadway, has a choice assortment of oysters, turkeys, all ready for Christmas and New Year's day, crying, "come eat me? come eat me." Fir* in G?orgctwi,5V C.?Eight or tan buildinga ware destroyed in Georgetown, on the 19th net The hrs broke out just below Mr Waterman's Fanaticism in the Nineteenth Century.?Despite of all tlie enlightenment of the age?despite our rapid progress in civilization and Christianity? despite our improvement in morals, religion, and philosophy?there still exists much ol that spirit ot intolerance and bigotry which blackened the dark ages with persecution and blood. This spirit is not confined to any one sect or class, nor are its manifestations visible only in the more obscure and corn paratively benighted portions of the country. Bigotry shows her ugly visage amongst all denominations?in the crowded city as .well as in the wilder ness. vVe have recently hud two most melancholy exhibitions of intolerant fanaticism. The account of the burning of a number of Protestant Bibles by Roman Catholic Priests in the town of Champluin,Clinton county, New York, is, it now appears,quite correct,and furnishes us with most disgraceful evidence of the existence at this day, of a degree of bigotry, perfectly appalling. That act was indeed most disgraceful?disgraceful to all immediately concerned in it?and waa calculated to d sgrace the whole communion to which the fanatics belong. Nothing but the most stupid ignorance could have led these blinded bigots to burn these Bibles, merely because they contained that version which was made of the Scriptures by the learned and excellent man who translated the sacred volume iu the time of King James, for that version does not differ in any material point from that authorised by their own Church. Here then we have in the country, the commission of a gross public act of fanaticism ; but what have we to match it in the city 1 It is only two days since we were presented in the very midst of the enlightened city of New York? in the Tab-rnacle?in the presence of an immense assemblage of Protestants, with still more revolting evidence of the existence of this same accursed spirit of fanatical intolerance. We had one of the most distinguished of the Protestant clergy, denouncing with all the bitterness of vindictive bigo try, not only the members of the Catholic church, but every foreigner, as unworthy of American citizenship?unworthy of admission to this|country? unworthy of exercising those rights which the God of nature has conferred on every individual of the human race! Here we had a Protestant priest, standing up in the light of day, and in the face of heaven, stigmatizing and defaming whole classes of men, having the same blood, sprung from the same origin, speaking the same tongue, coming to this country under precisely the same circumstances, as the race from whom he had just before proudly boasted, he was himself descended! Did ever bigotry give more characteristic utterance than this 1 If the burning of the Bibles at Champlain was disgraceful, this was tenfold more disgraceful. If the priests atChamolain have defiled their sacred office, this Reverened Mr. Cheever haa disgraced human nature itself. The ignorant priests have excited our pity?the refined and educated Protestant bigot has awakened only our disgust. The priests vented their intolerance and superstitious zeal on the Protestant bible?Mr.Cheeverpoured out his intellectual fanatacismon the whole of the down-trodden masses of Europe, who now seek the same shelter, and the same free home, with which Providence welcomed the Pilgrim Fathers. Was ever heard such unchristian intolerance! In some families we notice individuals who inherit all the vices and none of the virtues of their progenitors. This Reverend Mr. Cheever appears to belong to that unfortunate class. He has the bigotry of the Puritans, without their charityhe has their intolerance without their love of fieedom?he has their narrow-minded sectarianism, without their earnest desite to benefit their fellow men. His is lhe spirit which persecuted the poor Quaker from place to place, and finally to death ?his is the spirit which sought to re-enact the bloody code of Moses, under the dispensation of mercy? (lis is the spirit which believed in witchcraft, and consigned innocent victims to the faggot and the itake. Mr. Cheever flourished for some lime at Saem, where the witches were subjected to the ten ler mercies ot Puritanical legislation; perhaps there hill lurks in that vicinity, some of the bigotry of the olden tune, and he m iy have there caught the infection. But no one can now doubt his claim to be regarded as the best incarnation of the intolerance of that day, at present in existence. It would be improper to avoid reference to the manner in which the christian and enlightened sentiments of this Reverend Mr. Cheever were re :eived. When we say that they were hailed with thunders of applause, an easily understood idea is conveyed; but it is impossible to describe the chuckling, and gratified shrugging ot the shoulder, and gleelul rubbing of the hands, which betokened the delight with which Mr. Cheever's sentiments were received. All this really betokens a sad, sad state of things. Both pieces ofconduct on which we have animadverted are unworthy of the age. They are utterly inexecusable. We know that they will be visited by that just indignation which every attempt to revive the bigotry and fanaticism of the dark ages, is sure to meet at the hands of all who love freedom and their race. Thr Somkrs' Tragedy ?\Ve give the following documents without any remark :? We, the suhac libers, here been well and personally acq 11 tinted with Samuel Cromwell (slain on board the U. 8. brig Somers on the 1st inst.) lor many years, and hereby certify that he never was a pirate nor a slaver, but an honest, candid, upright, feeling, respectable and well educated man, in our opinion, wholly incapable ot conspiring to mutinize and surely not less capable of committing an overt act of mutiny, or any other bad act. Someofus have sailed on board the same vessel with him,and always lound him a good sailor and companionable man; a nautical man of the lirst class, always obedient to his superior officers, and kind anil attentive to his inferiors. And we very much regret for the character of our Navy,that such a man,in the prime of his lite, should have beea slain on board of any vessel belonging to her, and that too without a particle of evidence against his innoeence and without the semblance jf trial, as is now fully admitted by the advocates of his siecutioners, in the Courier k.

When an accident has happened, what ought to be done for the relief of the sufferer belore medical assistance can be obtained!" Docor Nelson replied to this query in a very instructive, and at the same time , entertaining manner, and elicited great and deserved upplause. Licensing the Meat Shops?Passage op the Street sweeping Contract?Curious Political Contest.?Py our report ol the Board of Assistant Aldermen last evening in another column, it will be seen that the whole ordinance revising and reforming the meat market laws, has passed that Board. The contract for sweeping the streets was also passed?tor the curious proceedings, see the report. The Board adjourned at two o'clock this morning. Th* Difference?Sixty years ago yonng ladies in Georgia planted black seed cotton plants, because they were pretty flowers' Winter at the West ?Snow m between two and three feet deep, and wolves are very numerous in Wisconsin Ft-nkiul of th*Jlatb Bishop Dubois.?The funeral of the late venerable Roman Catho'ic prelate of iliia diocese, took place yesterday. For acme time previous to ten o'clock, St Patrick's Cathedra! was filled by a dense multitude, a great portion ol which consisted of ladies. Many huudreds were unable to find admittance. The Cathedral has lately undergone several important repairs, and a con s-iderable addition has been made to the mum building. Beautiful and appropriate transparencies decorate the windows, and the altar and its orna meats are of unusual magnificence. St. Patrick' is, we believe, the largest ecclesiastical sturcture in the United States. "JThe coffin was placed on a platform hung with black crape immediately in front of the altar. It was covered by a pall, and on it were placed the Episcopal robes and mitre of the departed prelate. On each side of the coffin stood three large candlesticks with lighted torches, similar to those which _? i j...:.. ?i.? Asiuk..?;A. _r .1.. rnniiu uu iiic ciiicir UU11115 uic triruiauuu ui mr mass. The sisters of charity, with the orphans under their care, in mourning, occupied the four front pews. At ten o'clock Bishop Hughes, in his episcopal robes, attended by the very Rev Dr Power, l>r Pise, and about forty of the inferior clergy in their surplices and gowns, proceeded from the sacristy and took their places in the space around the altar, an anthem being sung by the choir Mass for the dead was then celebrated with all the imposing ceremonials of the Catholic liturgy. After mass Bishop Hughes approached the front of the platform, and briefly addressed the immense assemblage. He spoke chiefly in vindication of the Catholic services for the dead. They were not, he said, strictly for the dead, but for the living, being designed to afford the latter a solemn opportunity of expressing their affection, respect and veneration for the departed. The immortal soul, it was true, was gone from earth, but the clay tabernacle in which it had dwelt, had been consecrated toGod by baptism and other divine sacraments; and though the ipivpI urn a rpmnvpH vpf it urn a fittinff to thrnu' around the casquet the incense of love, and faith, and hope, ere it was committed to the silence ol the tomb. Of the deceased, Bishop Hughes spoke little. He had expected, he stated, to enjoy the presence of an esteemed brother prelate, whose long and familiar acquaintance with Bishop Dubois peculiarly qualified him for paying an adequate tribute to his memory and his virtues; but he had been disappointed, and he felt himself unequal to the melancholy task. But, added Bishop Hughes, there was little need for funeral eulogy of the departed. His memory was enshrined in the hearts of his children ?the Priests, the Sisters of Charity, whose order he founded, the orphans?the assembled mourners, who thronged that building. So dense was the crowd, and so unwilling were they to leave the cathedral, that it was several hours before it was possible to remove the corpse to the vault, the entrance to which is outside the building.

Horn's Concert, at the Tabernacle, went off with great iclat. A very numerous and fashionable audience attended. " The Christmas Bells," is a beautiful composition. It does no discredit to Mr. Horn, and that is saying something in its favor. It was very well received. We have not at present room to make any formal critiqut of the music or the nerformers. The Park was rather poorly attended. That sterling comedy, " Th? Poor Gentleman" was played, and Burton, Placide, Barry and Abbot played with great spirit, ease and natural effect. Mrs. Hunt has talent, but the line of characters as yet allotted to her has not afforded her much opportunity of displaying the extent of her merits.

A capital bill, and one which must draw a full house. Notwithstanding the present laxity among theatricals, the Chatham still pursues an uninterrupted course of success. Popular plays, good actors, and a persevering manager, will never fail in securing public approbation, and in reaping pecuniary reward. Mr. Forrest appears on Monday evening. M.

PaHa|* of the Appropriation Bill?The Coatt Harvcy?Rrmoral of Ar. Haaaler? The Oregon Territory?Philadelphia l iutom House, At. Congress has at last done something by way of a beginning to the session. The House to-day passed the Appropriation Bill for six months, ending July 1, 1843, after striking out the $50,000 for the Coat; Survey. After the Journal was read, a bill was passed, changing the name of the ship West Chester to that ot the ship Atlantic ; a similar bill had already passed the Senate. Some other unimportant matters came up and were passed over, when Mr. Fillmore of N. Y. moved that the House resolve itself into a Committee of the Whole, and take up the Appropriation Bill, and that all dehnte th<?r?nn cease at 2 o'clock. This reference to the celebrated gag law caused some discussion, but the motion finally prevailed. Mr. Bubnkll, ol Massachusetts, had the floor on this subject, and he spoke nearly an hour on the importance of the Coast survey to the whole country. He was perfectly willing also that an arpropriation should be made for a thorough survey of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, and means taken for clearing out all the snags. He referred also to the fact that nearly 600 lives had been lost on ourcoastthis winter since the 1st ofNovember, and insisted that the yearly appropriation of $100,000 for surveying this coast, would save more than five or ten times that sum annually in vessels and merchandize, now wrecked and lost for want of good charts. A great deal of this, too, was Western produce, and the Western men were as much interested in the matter as those at the North and East. Mr. Malmirv, of Va., then took the floor in conclusion of the debate on this subject. He went over prettv much the same ground that the oimonenis nt Mr. Hassler did on a former debate which you published, and he read a letter of Hassler'sin answer to some inquiries by the committee, wherein the old gentlemen said, very naturally, that he thought it was an insult (or the committee to send an engraver in whom he had no confidence, to examine his work ; the letter was otherwise very respectful.? His speech, like all speeches on the Bame side, partook too much of violent personal aatipathy to Mr. Hasslerthan a desire for the general welfare of the count; 7. Two o'clock arrived, and cut short his remarks. Down went the chairman's hammer, as a signal that the debate was closed. It was intensely amusing then to see the agonized efforts of many members to make a speech on the subject, or on some amendment thereto. I should think that nearlv fifty members were on their feet at once with outstretched arms and eyes towadsthe Chair, many moving about in hot haste, ready to explode with " a very few remarks." A Member?Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman?I rise, sir, to say, sir, that 1, sir, for one, sir, do not, sir. do not rise, sir, Chairman?The gentleman will please to take his seat ; the committee will come to order. [Thump, thump, thump, went the mallet.] Another Member?Mr. Chairman, can't I say? Chairman?No,sir, you can say nothing [laughter]; all debate has closed. Do you offer an amendment'?

Another?Yes, I've got an amendment, [laughter], and I wish to say? Chair?Send it up, sir, and say nothing about it? [laughter.] Another?Mr. Chair, can't I give a reason for what I'm going to do 1 Chair?No, sir, that's out of order [laughter.] Member?[In an under tone]?That's devilish hard. Another?Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment which? Another? And, Mr. Speaker, I've got an amendment which I wish? Another?1 ofb-r, sir, the following amendment that the sum which this House, under the circumstances? Several Members?" Oh" " No," "order," "no debate," " send up the amendment." A Member?1 shan't do it unless I'm allowed to explain why I send it? Several Locokoco Members?" No explanation" ?"no debate,"?"question," " order," " you've put the gag on us, and now you shall be governed by your own rule." a Member?Mr. Chairman, what is the question after all! [Great laughter ] Clerk?The motion is to stroke $50,000 and insert $20,000 for the Coast Survey. Member?Well, then, I move tostrike everything out. [Laughter 3 Mniim-What, the whole Bill? Mr. Gwinn ? No, to strike out the whole $50,000 Severai. Voices?Oh, no, no: something is due the men for the work done. You must pay your honest debts. Member?I don't want to pay a cent. [Greai laughter ] I mean for this survey. Then there was a general contusion for a few moments, a majority of the members rising at once, all trying to talk, and no one able to hear a word Thump, thump, went the mallet, "The commiite will please come to order." "Order," "order." " Question." Members still moving about. Chair?Is the committee ready for the question! Gentlemen, as many as? Member?Mr. Chairman, I move? [Laughter.] Member?Mr. Chairman, I move the hon. gentleman sitsdown. [Great laughter ] Member?Gilmer, sav $10,000 instead of $20,000. Member ?Strike it ail out. Seversi. Voices?Question, question. Mr. Gilmer?I arn willing that the question be taken on inserting $10,000 instead of $50,000. Chairman? Is the committee ready tor? A Voice?Ayes and noes. [Great laughter.] Member?You can't do it. Several Voices?Divide ! divide! Tellers! tellers! [Tellers were appointed.] Chairman?Gentlemen, those in favor of the amendment, will please pass between the tellers. Then there was a general rush down to the foot of the clerk's desk, and some members calling out to others, " come, come along, and vote for striking out, and turn the old cuss out," and general laughing. Eighty-two were announced, and cries of " close vote," " it's carried," "yes," "no," and so <n. Chair?Those oppoped to the amendment will please pass between the tellere. Then came another rush, and more attempts to f^PAff nrnflplvfpa into th*? rtr> 1ifinal moolotro?? l^t,.,? ? .--0 , ,J ... r ..wvui Itiavioiium ucinccil the tellers. At last 63 noes were announced amid laughter and great noise. The Chair announced that the amendment to strike out $50,000 and insert $10,000, was carried. Mr. Gwikn?(jumping up quickly)?Now sir, I move to strike the whole out. (Cries of "oh," "no," " yes," " go it," " no," "f-wlish," " stick to it, Owinn," "shame," " go the whole figure," and the members mostly laughing and joking each other all round. Tellers were called ; the same scene was enacted over again, the members seeming to think it a high joke, and laughing heartily as they passed through the tellers, like schoolboys playing at thread-my needle. The result of this division was, ayes 78, noes69. So the whole was stricken out. It may be a breach of privilege to say so, but ii this is not the most reckless and ridiculous movement ever made by foolish men, I should like to s<*e one more. To stop an impor'ant work like the Coast Survey, after it has piogressed for ten years in the hands of one of the most able mathematicians that ever lived, and one of the most accurate surveyer#?a man able to teach every member of Congress?a man that knows more of mathematics than all the Congressmen put together: nnd a man, as Mr. Wise very justly argued, whom all the scientific men that have been consulted on the subject, declare to be more competent for the work than any other man in the country?to stop the survey even before the base line of verification is laid down?before the accuracy of the labor of ten years can be proved or tested?the movement is monstrous?it is suicidal to the whole shipp ng interest of ths country. And not only this, hut Hasslerand his men have piles of field notes and calculations that would take them months and perhaps years to work out so as to complete the chart, of those bays and harbors that have been surveyed. ann wmcn no one eise can wont out. Yet all the appropriation is cut off: and they are not to be allowed to finish what they have hall done,and their labor so far thrown away. This is economy with a ven geance. The saving is ?50,000. The debate on it, so far, has cost ?10,000, and probably will cost ?20,000 more before it is over. 1 he Appropriation Bill was proceeded with down to the ?25,000 item lor the Boston Custom House Mr. Sprioos, of Kv., moved to strike this all out; he called lor tellers, and 17 voted for it. Sevirai, Members?Give it up, Spriggs; give it up. Sprioos?No, I won't. [Great laughter ] His motion was lost by a large majority.

In Senate.?Nothing very important waa done here to-day- Mr. Allen's resolution for the Senate to sit with open doors alwavs except when discus*ing treaties, was made the order of the day for Tuesday. The papers relative to the Coast Survey were ordered to be printed. Mr. Linn's resolution calling on the President to know why the Oregon Boundary was not settled in the late Treaty was carried. Mr. Benton's resolution calling on the President to know whether Lord Ashburton made any pro;>osition about the assumption of State debts came up. Mr. Archer said he was authorised b> the State Department to say that Lord Ashburton never even alluded to the subject whilst he was here. He hoped that was sufficient. Mr. Bknton said, that was not enough; he wanted the denial to come direct from the President, and to be put on the archives. Mr. Crittenden introduced a resolution relative to the water rotted hemp of Kentucky which was referred. Mr. Linn moved the third reading of the Bill remitting Gen. Jackson's hne.? Mr. Crittenden moved its reference to the Judicinry Committee. It was carried; and after some other unimportant business the Senate adjourned A consultation is now going on here between Mr Wickliffe and the Postmasters of New York and Philadelphia, to see whether the present rate of postage cannot be reduced two-thirds. The Bankrupt Law ilepeal Bill had the go-by today. In the North Carolina Legislature, both General Saunders and Bedford Brown have been dropped; and the locofocos have taken up a Mr. Hay ward or Haywood, a supposed Van Buren man, and elected him to the United States' Senate for six years, to succeed Mr. Graham. On 6ome resolution day before the holidays, as soon as the State of Virginia is called, lam told that Mr. Botts ineansto bring ui> the resolutions impeaching the President. They will probably be consigned to the " Tomb of all the Capulets." The weather here is sadly changeable; the thermometer fell 5(1 degrees in ten hours. Mr. Lane, wife of the Hon. member for Indiana, who escaped without injury when the stage was overturned, is now lying dangerously ill, supposed to be at the point of death. It is her first winter in Washington. The nominations of Thomas H. Smith and Judge Sutherland, for the Philadelphia Custom-house, are now before the Senate. The former will be rejected, but it is thought that the latter may be confirmed from the fact that he served as a member of the House with much ability for manv years, and during that time with many members of the present Semite who were then in the House, and who think highly of his business talents. You see t'.e running fight has commenced in the Senate on the Treaty. There will be hot work about it by and by. The season is not expected to be very brilliant.? It is veiy doubtful whether the President's house will be thrown open, from the melancholy circumntunno t\f fko rloatli nf Kiu palimaKIp larlir A nil tho recent offliction in the family of the Hon. the Secretary at War will throw a gloom over all the intended official parties.

Thk Bankrupt Law is safe for the residue of this week?the bill to repeal it having been laid aside in the House of Representatives vesterday in order to go on with the Appropriation Bill, the immediate liassage of waich was almost a matter of necessity. The Bankrupt Repeal bill cannot now be resumed in that body before Monday next. Let not the friends of the law, however, deceive themselves with false hopes as to its fate in Congress. A bill will certainly n iss for the repeal of the Rankrupt Act, in part, if wot in whole, before many weeks.?
