Nothing was done in the House to-day a n the way of business, but Thompson of Indiana, " [whig) and his colleague, Kennedy (locofoco) de- 0 ivered each a speech on the next presidential con- * test in reality, but nominally on the Bankrupt Bill, (j They were both of the "Dt omnibus rtbut et qui- e busdam alii*" sort. Poor Everett, the author of the bill for repeal, saw what a stalking-horse this s bankrupt question was about to be made, and tried ( to get his bill from under these rough riders, but * classically speaking it was "no go." He moved the j previous question, (which had b*en sprung in this debate four times before) but it was voted down without a division. The speech ot Mr. Thompson, a brilliant and promising young man, fell far short of the expectation of his friends, and by some was considered a failure. He had the floor in reply to Cushing. I give you in reality all the facts he uttered, divested of the repetition. Young Kennedy, who replied, I also give pretty full, his speech being understood to embody the sentiments of tka Democratic party in and out of the House, in relation to Mr. Tyler, his conduct, position, prospects, and the race for the next presidency. To the point, then, The business of the day. In the first place, there was nothing done in the Senate but the presentation of a;i immense pile of petitions against the repeal of the Bankrupt Law, and the passage of most of the private bills which passed the House the other day. The Senate then adjourned early. In fact they seem to be taking life very easy at present, and reserving their energies for the fights on the Treaty and the Exchequer, which are to come oil soon after the holidays, by particular desire. ].n thk Hocsk, the morning hour was devoted to the ordinary business, resolutions,petitions,dec. Mr. Cavk Johnson brought forward his resolation that no extra compensation should be paid to anv of ficer of the federal government, uuder any cireumstanceswhatever; which was referred to a committee Col. John Campukl'., of S. C., tried to introduce his bill, mentioned yesterday, j>osiponing the Congressional district system This was objected to. Mr. Butler King,of Georgia, introduced the following resolution, which was referred to a committee. Mr. Adams said that the question of a line of steamers to France was before the House in another shape, but he withdrew his objection:? Resolved,-?'That a select committee of Ave be appointed ta take into consideration the expediency of aiding individuals or companies in the establishment of lines ol steam vessels, for the purpose of transporting the msil between some of our principal northern and southern ports to foreign jiortB?on the lakes and the Mississippi river. Said vessels to be constructed under the direction ot the Navy Department, as war steamers, and at all times snbjectto its control, under such stipulation as may bo provided by law. Also to enquire into the expediency of employing armed steamers in the revenue service, and uniting them to the Navy, and using iron in tha construction of said vessels, and report by bill or otherwise. The Bankrupt Bill. Mr. Thompson, of Indiana, then took the floor. He said that it was evident the members had come together determined to go right through with the i regular business of the session And until yesterday they went quietly about it. They were, it is jrue, preparing to buckle on their armor Jor a contesTnPTeaJter, but did not intend to.-.?afce this fiatt the arena for the presidSntianTght. But within the last twenty-four hours, they had ssen the strange spectacle of the administration coming into this House for relief, and throwing down firebrands to excite, the discontent and angry passions of members, and ratsisg the war cry which ought first to have been heard in another place. They raised this cry at the Extra Session, they continued it at the last session, they opened and closed the session with it, and during the interim they had continued it, a*d kept it up. And now at this short business session thev had begun this warfare again. The President hacf proposed a measure of relief?his friends in in is xiousr, muiutiieu it?retusea, when called on, to bring it forward, and rVen said that the whig pa*y were to be held responsible for the result. He did not think this mode of warfare was to have been renewed, when we were called upon to come up to the common altar, and relieve the countryHe could only view it as an application by the Government to take the benefit ot thei nvoluntary clause of the Bankrupt Law, and to sell out its assets inthe market to the highest bidd: r. [Laughter ] How much was to go to the share of the gentleman from Massachusetts, (Cushing) he wouldn't say; but judging from the position he had assumed of auctioneer, he was afraid the gentleman would claim a much larger portion than the House would feel disposed to give him [Laughter ] It was the first time in the history of any country, that a government of any civil ized nation?that "the acknowledged head of a government, (acknowledged here and elsewhere,) the admitted head in this House, speaking by authority?he who, (if rumor lies not,) not only does much of the writing of the administration, but great part of its thinking also?the first time that the administration of any civilized country should boldly stalk into the Representative, Hall of the country, and hold up the spoils of office in the common market to the highest bidder. [He here alluded to Mr. Cushing's Newburyport speech about the bank bill, and the cabinet, and the alleged bargain which has been so much talked about.] Gentlemen will remember that it was said that the man ifeeto whigs were applicants for office. We called on the President to name the men. He refused, because it would be a breach of confidence. When did he descend from this high position 1 For now we I see he authorises the gentleman from Massachusetts to go out into the highways and byways, and declare not only what took place in the cabinet, but the negotiations said to have taken place between him and the legislative body in this Hall. Now, sir, as far as the charge concerns me, I hurl it from me with the utmost indignation ; I believe in toto J caclo, that the charge is grossly untrue. Who are the men t I ask their names? who dared to tamper , with my judgment and my conscience 1 When aid ( it ever hap; en before, sir, that any administration , entered the legislative hall of the nation, and offered | its power and patronage for sale to the highen bid- i derl He tells us, sir, that the whig party knocked i out its brains against the " fact," of the President? < [laughter ] The veto power, which stuck out like ' ? pillar or post to be run again.-t. And after saving ! mar tne wings, with their shattered force", cannot help the President, he turns round to the other party J and aays, by authority, if you, too, dare to do the ( same, and run your head against the " fact," you'll t get your brains knocked out also. (Laughter) < What is this, sir, but an open and corrupt offer by ' the Administration to bargain with that party tor ' place and power. Now, sir, it yet remains to be 1 ^een whether the gentleman will get a bid or not. J (Laughter) Judging from the tone of the organ of j that party, (the Globe) they seem to think, sir, that , the article offered for rata is somewhat damaged? t (laughter)? that it is the remnant of an old stock, r (laughter)?and it is doubtful whether he'll get it t bid lor it on either side- (Luughter) We have ? seen, sir, before, the patronage of the Government " from the Secretaries of State a?d War, down, {j brought to bear recently on the freedom of election j all round the country. He tells us, sir, that gentle- ? men connected with the administration will be t, heard at the proper time. Sir, we have heard too a much of tbern i (ready, and at a very improper lime (laughter ) 8ir, there was a time,when on the bare ' suspicion of a bargain of this sort (Clay and Adams) ? which has been disproved, there arose a pary in ^ this country, which tor talents, and power, and po- ? luteal influence has u?ver been equnlled before or c since. And, yet, with all this fresh in the reco lec |( tion of men, we see the gentfeman, himself descend I ed from a good old revolutionary stack, come into this House shamelessly, and offer the spoils of party b for sale. Who is it talks now, sir. of president mak u ingl We have been accused of it repeatedly ; and !' yet we are unblushingly told, sir, that the main ob i, ectotthis administration is to make Itself heard c and felt at the next presidential election. Which tl side, air, will the gentleman be found fighting on, o Ihsn.airl (laughter.) That, I suppose .depends on ft he bid (laughter) which the auctioneer gets for ? us lot. (Great laughter.) Sir, is it not supremely h udicrous to aee tuck supporters of such an adininisration come here and talk of overawing and con f rolling by a mere wave of the hand the contention* p ind discords going on between ths great parties ot ,, he country for the next presidential contest ? a [Laughter) Sir, it reminds me of the man in Bos- e< on, who shook the constable that arrested him; w ' Sir," said the constable, " do you know who you n( hake 1 I)o you know, sir, that when you shako 4~ ne, sir,'you shake the Commonwealth, sir. (Roan iy * f . ' # *** O i ? ?r 1.'''? ? W Y ( ifORK, SATURDAY MO] [laughter, in which Cushing joined ) The gentletan says, " We are the Stale?we are the Go rrnment?we are the fixed 'fact' that's going ) knock your brains out ((Treat laughter.) The entletnan tells us as Irom the Executive palace, that te government sees a disagreement between the ten in the ranks of the two great parties, and that ul of this disagreement th- y ex|*ct to make profit i electing a President. Sir, it is like the rooster lat went into the farm-yard with the horses and iackss, and after fluttering about immensely, criea out. Look out gentlemen, t ike care, or we shall tread n each other's toes." (Great laughter.) Was this eto (tower intended originally to be u-ed as a party reapon ? No! And yet the gentleman says, that his power is to be the rallying point to control the ? ? -? -f c:- .. u .i... .?iA. i 'letnioii m ton. cir, in an inc ui \-?ciici?i ackson and Mr. Van Daren, this power was never ilaimed for them, and yet, sir, whin General Jackon only exercised this veto power to carry out the irinciples of the Constitution, as he understood it, the [entleman from Massachusetts (Cashing) was found o rally against it, and was the loudest to cry out igainst the abuse of that power. [Mr. Thompson, hen, in the course of his speech read a long extract Tom Mr Cushing's speech in 1834, denouncing General Jackson for using the veto power.] How much more so, then, sir, shall we declaim against this power, when we see it tor the first lime, and I trust in Sod, sir, for the last time, brought into this house, with the declaration that it is to be used for the most hellish aud abominable purpose?to control the free voice of the people at their elect jons. He huscharged upon us the use of caucus dictation in this House, for the purpose of promoting the election of the most gallant chieftain in the country (Clay), for the presidency, and yet he comes here, and uses the same dictation which he has complained of Cusutno (rises warmly.) (said what was true: that myself and my lriend from Virginia had had niorp than nur fair whnrr* of rt#?minr? nrinn hnf 1 didn't complain of it. Thompson. ?The gentleman, sir, may thank himself. lie began the war lnms?'lf. When we thought ourselves ill-used by the President, we owed it to our own sense of honor to declare that we had done with him; for he had soiled the pure ermine of his office and brought disgrace on the Presidential Chair. And sir, we would have nothing more to do with him. And now, sir, suppose it was true that the proposition to the President, spoken of, had been made; it was totally disconnected with the great questions before this House. And it is well known, sir, that the first intimation ever heard in this house about the postponement of the bank bill, came Irom the Secretary himself. [Here he read from Cu^hiog's speech of 1834.] This is the language of the jrentleman in 1834 ; and if the veto |>ower was dangerous then, how much more so is it now, when the head of the government has the cool effiontery to come into this house,and tell usunblushingly.that this vpto power is to be used to control the election ofl&44 Hir, I had hoped that in the contest of lfcU4, the great ^hig party would have had to rally against the principles of that distinguished statesman of the South, flCalhoun,] lamed for his integrity, and his straight forward line of conduct, and his manly advocacy of his principles?the great and proud representative of the Southern portion of the democratic party. Then, sir, we should have had the lines of party contest so clearly drawn and settled, that nu man could ever be in doubt about them again But, sir, I now begin to doubt about this being the i.-sue in that fight. For when I see the seat of that great man in the national legislature filled by a distinguished leaderof the Union party, [Judge Huger,] when I see in the old North Sta'e [North Carolina,] the sceptre departed from that gentleman?[Haywood's election,] and when I see the movements and disaffection in Georgia, 1 begin to believe that there is something in the movements now going on north of tv ?_ r._. ?i-:-.- i! -i ? ? ? iviuTMMi auu i^iaoij ? nuc, wiueii iciih u* uiai we may in all probability have another chieftain to tight the battle against-and that may enable* ua to tell, that in this contest of 1844 no principle at all is to be involved?that men and not measures is to be the cry. Now, sir, I want gentlemen to come out and aay. what party is to come forward and take up thiu offer, and bargain and treat for the spoils The gentleman from Massachusetts tells us that we have run ourselves against the buckler of Executive wrath, and beat our brains out against this "fact" Sir, we heard something about this Napoleon alliance some time ago. Sir, perhrps it is true? that is to take place. Silence, bit, gives consent. Now I'll tell gentlemen, tliat the country will not hold them guihless ot being a party to tms\jais<"n ifr.? don't deny it?if you don't come out and show your hands. 1 heard a distinguished gentleman in the democratic party, sir, say that he wasHfraid to make a bid, for fear that however low ii might be that he would be taken up.

Mr. Everett then rose and said that he did not vant his bill to be the subject used for carrying on a tassionale and party debate. There would be a fair hance when the treaty came up, and the exchequer ame up, ior gentlemen to talk till they were tired, nd as long as thsy pleased. But this was a business natter, and he therefore moved the previous quesion. The previous question was voted down without a livision. Mr. Kcmredt, of Indiana, ro?e.

He went on to say?"I have listened to the various arguments that have been made in the progress of this iebate, Mr. Speaker, and particularly to thoae of the gentleman from New York (Barnard) and although I can ;heerfully war with the whig party, and war to the knife, ind the knife to the hilt, vet I felt pity and compassion for hat party when the gentleman drew the picture he did of heir condition, comparing'em to some poor creature,* I forget his name, Mr. Speaker, (roars of laughter) but however he had to roll a barrel of atonea up a hill,(shouts and Meals oi laughter) and when he got to the top found somebody there to kick him and the barrel of stonea all hack to he hettom again.

[Cries of " right," and applauae.] That waa he rock which knocked their brain* out, and not the Preident'a, "fact." [Laughter] They put aaet of men beore the people In the conteat of 1940, who had no aettled rinclplea at all; and when they got together in that mtiae, whan they attempted to build up lnatead of pull own, they found themaalve* in tke fix deacribed by the 'entleman trom Maaaechnaetta, [Cuahing,] each wanting ? build aceordlng to a plan of hi* own?no two leader* greeing, and quarreling with each other about measure* nd mea, until they were aplit all to piece*.

(Laughter.) Now, Sir, I've a word to toy to the gentle uiaa about what so i e call hu threat to the democratic party; which I suppose had some allusion to the President's Exchequer scheme. Now that's not a good enough sub-treasury plan lor me, Sir, nor lor the democrats that I represent, Sir; but it's very near a sub-treasury, Sir? (Lauginer) and if the gentleman was to let me have it, and tlx it oil with ]>en ami ink lor two or three minutes, I could make a very good sub-treasury ol it. (Oreat laughter, in which Cushiug joined.) Now, Sir, 1 might huve misunderstood the gentleman; but 1 thought the amount ot what he meant by his speech was this; to say to the democratic party that, it juu persist in adhering to your old lashioued notions about tue sub treasury, wuy iue President with hit "Hot," (laughter) will knock out your brains, an he has the bruins ol the whig party.? (Roaiaot laughter.) 1 might have mistook the geulleiuau'? remark*, hut they squinted awfully like something ot that sort (Great lauguter ) Now, Sir, 1 don't expect to be in the neat Congress,because 1 understand my constituents have got an objection?but it 1 have the good or tied lortuue to be here, 1 shall certainly vote lor a good old fashioned sub treasury ; and il tho President should veto it, I'll tell you what 1 won't do ! I won't keep driving the same tning at him over and over again till 1 cause the whole people to admire his character tor consistency and firmness. 1 won't turu round and abuse the Executive like a common pickjiocket for doing what huconceivos to be his duty after 1 have done what I conceive to he mine. 1 won't abuse and denounce him, and all about him as traitors, rogues, rascals, and corrupt scoundrels, and load them with every possible abusive epithet, because they honestly and conscientiously happen to ditfer with me in epuuou?I'll never become traiilic with i a<e and resemble a maniac from disappointed malice, and try to tear to pieces mo constitution of my couulry, because one ot its valuable and most wholesome provisions happens to be useu in opposition to my will and my judgment. 'Plus is whut 1 won't do, sir ; (Gieat excitement, laughter, and sensations ol applause, as he pointed towards the w lugs.) Although I legard the veto power a great palladium ol liberty, 1 hope mere never will be occasion lor it to be used tow ards us so us to disgust us with it. (Laughter,) For it's a very hard and a very uulucky weapon to hit a man or a party ot or the head with-, sir. (Laughter.) The exercise oi tho veto power gave Gc-n Jackson a tremendous intlueuce and cha racter lor boldness and firmness, ana decision. It lias done much the same lor John Tyler. And I've no disposition therelore to make John Ty ler a greater man than God Almighty made him (muck laughter) and to drive the same measure at him again ana again, to let hiui veto it again and again, and thus show his character lor consistency and firmness is the very way of all others to make a great man of him. (Cries ol " t rue.") My advice to those gentlemen ot my party that may be in the next Congress, is to quietly iet the sub-treasury plan go by and rest, Uutil you've lound out that the President will go for it aud sign it ; or until we we have time to elect a President in 10-11, which we shall do. (Great laughter and cries of " No?Henry Clay,") ? who will go lor it. And now, having said thus mucn about the vetoa, let me do justico to the man. 1 believe, sir, tbat John Tyler is a very honest kind ol uu old soul. (Laughter ) Yes, sir, us honest a man us ever wssin the White House, Irom tho tuuu ol Washington, aud luui in eluded. I don't believe lit ? quite to greet u man a* Ueu. Jackson. (Roars ol laughur.) But lie's lull as houukt. (Laughter.) In iliort, sir, Ik's lull us honest u President as we've any occasion tor, aud 1 feci sure that's the opinion of large majority of the peop.e of this country. 1 don't believe thai he's so popular as to make the people select him as a ohief, (luughteij; aud all the storms that's a brewing in the political atmosphere, will never brew iohn Tv ler into tne Presidential Chair ugam by a long shot. (Much laughter, and cries ol " Don't be too sure of that.") No fear. He mutt be content to retire into private life, upon his well-earned laurels. Of course there would always be some lond ol bespattering good people with mud ; by such his character would be attacked, his motives impeached?and he denounced, as he had been, for a traitor. A traitor to what? Not to uis country ! For with all the party malice and unfounded abuse that had been heaped upon him, no man could say that John Tyler had ever been a traitor to his country The very men that elevated him to power were the first and the loudrst to denounce him. And the American people haue seen so much of she same set of men praising one set of measures to day,and denouncing them the neat, that they pay no attention now to party abuse. I have said thus much for the man, not for any love or feeling or in. tcrest that 1 have in the matter, but because he's uonust Heserves it. There's no tear ol my swerving ifoin my prinuipies sir, to praise any man. I've been nurtured and trained andfed with the good old democratic principles of Thomas Jefferson. I'm radical to the root, sir, [Ureal laughter, in which Wise joined,] and the roots strike into the earth, sir, as ih?glorious oaks strike deep and firm into the rich soil of thfe Mississippi valley. [Laughter and cheers.) And now, sir, a word to my colleague (Thompson) about president making. The gentleman seemed to desire to go into the fight, against the distinguished chieftaia irom the swth, sir, (is., o^k.nn.) _a? the leader ol the forces sgainsigiai; and rare 1 am, sir, a more honest, nonoraaie, high mladed and pure chieftain no army ooald desire, or one who would more nobly bsttle for his principles and for truth and integrity j and it such be the will and decision of a National Convention, sir, to that, sir, I most heartily say, Amen ! [Great sensation, and evident marks of approba'ion all through the House, particularly from the southern men ] Ana if my colleague supposes that he is the weakest candidate that can be selected from the democratic ranks, I can tell him that he very much mis ...g ,u IU?J pally, and the strength of hi* friend* in the north a* well a* the south. [Great excitement in the House ] We're going to have a great meeting at Cincinnati, sir, in relation to the next presidential election. At that meeting certain great principles of the party will he promulgated. [Cries ol ' Name tnem."] Well, sir, I can name them. [Several voices cried out, "Oh, ko, no."] Well,sir, but ii gentlemen don't know what democratic principles are in this country, sir, it's time they went hack to Delaware's spelling book. [Roars of laughter.] But it they don't writedown their principles in black and white, so broad and so plain that he who runs may read 'em, then it'll be because they're not able to write. [Laughter] I'll go forth to fight with no motley scrabble, such as the whigs presented in 1840 For a bank here, and against it there?lor a tarifl hera and against it there?for bankruptcy here and against it there?for distribution, rule, or ruin, here, and against it there. No, sir, 1 fight in no such ranks. But we will inscribe our true principles on our standard, and have n true standard hearer who can carry them out. Now, sir, if John Tyler can answer our political catechism satis ac. torily (laughter), and gets the nomination cf the conven. tion (great laughter), I'd go for him and not olhtnvite? fact or no fact! (Roars of laughter.) He's pretty nearly democratic enough, sir, I think, at heart : and if it w.-isn'i for a certain little association of spirits, black, white ami grey, around him (turning to Cushing and Wise, all laughing) who have corrupted him, sir, why he might soon be quite democratio enough for our convention. (Laughter, and cries from the whig side of" Take him.") It's astonishing how much evil associations and bad company does to corrupt a good man. (Roars of laughter al this hint at Wise and Cushing) Well, sir, if John Tyler is nominated by our party convention, sir, I shall support him, sir; and if he can't get that or answer our catechism, I'm no more afraid of him or his fact, or those around his fact, than I am of the man in the moon. We can whip the whole of our opponents, sir, easy. (Laughter.) There is an old story about a very good old dog being soundly flogged because he happ -ned to be caught in bad company. Now, if John Tyler complaius of being lashed rather severely he must lay the blame on the had company he keeps. (Roars of laughter, and Wise taking notes.) The great democratic party, sir, has nothing to fear, strengthened, as it is, by the love, and trust of the people ; it can whip any administration, " the/act," the universal whig party, National Republicanism, and all other isms, all clean, sir, at one fight. ( Great laughter) But John Tyler must get rid of nis company, sir, before the democratio party can take hold of him. (Laughter.) Why, gentlemen, only to think of amalgamating Daniel Wt tmcr and John C. Spencer with the democratic party. (Laughter.) Why, sir, we might as well try to gralt a crab apple on an orange stalk. To be sure, we've latterly hear J Mr. Webster abused by the whigs unmercifully, and I've been looking into bi* history to lee if he isn't a good deal better than he's made out to be. They're abused bim so much, that I begin to think he lias done some good action in the course ol his life. Those very men, sir, who went and drank up his wine the very night the Bankrupt Law was passed, were the first to turn round and abuse him ? (Laughter.) They could pour the red stuff" down their throats, sii, slick, and then come right out of hia house and abuse him. (Great laughter.) So I've been searching back thraugh his life sir, to see if there's one green spot in his lile, and I think l'se found on* or two. He said once, 1 believe, that he was a democrat ; at Richmond, I believe?(a member?" no, Patchogue'")?well, at Patchoguo. Well, sir, if he'll repent of ma errors, and come up to our creed, he may come Into our ranks, sir ; provided he'll come as a private, but never a* a leader? (roars of laughter) ?never aa a leader, sir. Well, sir, to go back -, 1 repent, t> at I may have mistaken the meaning of the gentleman'* speech, as to that partof it about the sub-Treasury. It might not have meant what I thought, sir but it had a powerful leaning that way. (Ureat laughter) I did absolutely look squinting that way consider 'bly. But, air, in the other partof the gentleman's speech, I did not understand him, aa my colleague said, aa holding out the patronage of the government for sale? But I understood him. air, that there had been a faction, sir, who hail arrayed itself against the President, and took every opportunity of thwarting him and all hia measures, with or without cauie. There has been too much of this?there is too much truth in it. There is a good deal of spleen exhibited alto towards John Tyler as a man, that's unbecoming any aetof men?the more so is it of members of Coniruss. I understood the gentleman's speech as maintaining the point, which is true that as President of the United Slates, John Tyler was bound to carry on the foverumeiit according to the conatitution; and that he wns etermined to seek for aid to do so by every proper an-! constitutional maans. II thia was what the gentleman meant, I most cordially respond to hins. Aa long os he is President, sir, he dare not shrink from thy responsibility of carrying on that government, and how is he to do this without assistance? The government is not to break down ?the wheel* are not to stop, sir, because the w hig patty have quarreled with him, for his opposition to some of their measures. It's not very material, air, to the people of this < oimtry.sir, who is Presi,.ent, but ft is material that t'i government shegM be properly administered, snd It wes not only John Tyiei's right, but It was hia duty te ask an.l seek for aid from every part of the country, where he could And bonnet and able men to support him. If the gentleman meant that by hia remarks, I will cordially au?tain him. I will never join those men who are eternally abusing tka rraaident. air, for any and a vary measure, t HERA 1842. right or wrong, became it don't meet with the views o^ party. A'id in conclusion, air, I would say a few wordi to the whig party in this House. 1 thought the trouncing that they got ut the laic elections, air, would have done them good?it generally dors a child good, air, especially a haughty child; and a haughtier party than this same whig party, sir, never aaaembled on this floor or in any other plare. (Oreat sensation ) Yea, air, who can forget the haughty declaration ot the Farmer of Asblaud, air, in speaking of the great democratic party, sir, when he said that not only were that party defeated, sir, but that they stood like criminals in the cart under the gallows, only waiting for the oxen to move otf, and leave them hanging betwixt heaven and parth, to end a career of guilt by a spectacle of ignominy and shame. Who can forget this, sir 7 from this haughty leader of a most haughty party 7 To say that the democratic party, air, not only deserved defeat, but that they deserved death, and were about to suffer a disgraceful one. 1 will tell gentlemen here, sir, that the whole party ot you acted like a band of reckless tyrants, at both the last sessions of Congress?and exhibited a system ot ruthless despotism that I trust never will tie seee in this Hall again j lesrcratrd as it was, sir, by [here there was great contusion, and talking, and excitement, and 1 caught some words that sounded like "desecration," "fiddlers," or " fiddling," and lost the rest of the sentence.] But, 1 sup Pi... . . rD .1 1 Tk. pose you Oltrni QO tl on pui |>u?'. jiwaii ui inu^iiiii.j IMC tact ii, gentlemen, you hail been so long out ot power, that tho reins were naw and strange to you. [Groat laughter.] You did'nt know how to handle the reins. [Increased laughter.] You thought such a course was an act of nocessitv in order to hind you together and keep you in power, [laughter] and suck a set ol legislators, and such a system of legislation never was paralleled in the civilized world. Your hour rules, your gag laws, yourcaucus dictation, and the whole system of your haughty legislation, never was seen or [heard of before and I trust in God, never will he again. [Great rxcitement mixed with laughter] But I did hope better things of you, gentlemen, at this session. And at the commencement of it, I wrote home to my constituents telling them that the whigs appeared thoroughly humbled, and perfectly penitent. (Laughter.) And so you appeared to be lorthebrst lew days. (Great Laughter.) But only two short weeks have elapsed, and you're beginning to be as bad or worse than ever. (Roars ol Laughter.) You seem to have forgotten already the wholesome lessons yon learnt at the late elections. (Increased Laughter.) You cant, certainly, hare forgotten where this debate began. (Looking to Arnold ) It was forced on my friend of the coh. (Looking at Cush ing ) The gentleman irom Tennessee, opened on him and every body else, even on his own party, like a perfect sluice. [Oreat Laughter] His safety valve, sir, flew right straight up, [Roars ot Laughter] and let out a whole deluge of all sorts of things. [I mmen e Laughter] Anathemas, hot and heavy, on his own friends, thecabmen, the Secretary of state, the Executive and every body else. Yes, sir, even we, the the [turning round to a locofoco] what did he call us. [A member cried out "Subterraneans."] Yes, sir, even the suhtrainyous democrats, as [he called us, air, 'got a back handed (wipe. [Screams of Laughter, in which Arnold goodnaturedly Joined.] Put the aaddle on the rigbt horse, sir. Don't put it on the cab, sir, and break it down ; that's got enough to bear. (Continued laughter.) Now, sir, I hope there will be an end to all this. For the fact is that this quarrel and abuse of John Tyler has got into mch a perfect knot, that I defy any man on earth to untie it. It's like the Gordian Knot, sir. If must be cut, sir. (Laughter.) First we have a statement from this whig leader?then a statement from that leader in contradiction t then n declaration from one retiring minister, then acounter declaration from another retiring minister, then a statement by authority ; here and then a statement with* ut authority, until the whole thing has got into such a perfect snarl, that the whole people are sick ami tired of looking at it, and will be. disgusted with those who keep it before them. And now, sir, as to the bargains my colleague spoke about. What that gentleman suys is rc ad at home; and I wish our party to stand fair in this matter. He said, if we kept would be considered that we were about to bar, gain for patronage. Now, sir, I tell him and this House distinctly thatour party hare no bargains to make with any one. Neither with the President or the Cab-men, or Henry Clay or the fragments of the late whig party. (Great laugliter.) No, sir, nut I think there's quite as much danger of the ultra whigs going over to the President, or turn Fng to us, and a little more, than of any of our party going out of our ranks. (Oreat laughter aad applause.) Yes, sir, I'm absolutely afraid that unless the white Charlies can whip John Tyler themselves, that they'll actually call en the little Magician of Kindcrhook to do it for 'em, rather than lethim go with a whole skin. (Shouts of laughter and cries of " Good, true, Kennedy, true ; that it a fact'.") Now, sir, I for one, never want to give John Tyler the immense (lower which the cxereifeol tho veto gives to a Predent. It was that, sir, more than most things that gave such migh'y influence to (Jen. Jackson. The people, sir, as a body, love a bold, fearless man, lull of energy , they like the "I take the responsibility" leeling in a leader. That made them love General Jackson?they knew he loved his country?they knew he was brave. (Wise here called out, ' They thought he was honest.') Yea, sir, they thought and found he waa hon-st, (Cheers and laughter) and when they saw he was energetic and fearless?regardless of conarquencea in what he iielieved to be a rignt cause, and heard him say " I'll take the re p?*>otlit/,** ibcj- oluutt iu UluqwIkU laieuse devotion, >,.! it nerved his arm like iron. (Excitement and applause.) f would warn gentlemen, how they give other presi ents the power to become aimilarly popular; for this veto power has a much greater effect in that way than gentlemen are willing to believe. But did the gentleman from Massachusetts ever war against the veto power, aa it had been said he did. (alluding to Cushing's ipeech against the Veto in 183l;Cushing laughed and blushed.) Silence, sir, seems to gireconsent. (Roars of laughter.) Now, air, if John Tyler has abused this Veto power, arraign him for that. But dont quarrel with the instrument, end try to tear it out of the Constitution, because it has be en used against some of your measures. That's all wrong, sir (Cries of " Good.") Now, sir, I shall close. I think I have defined my position pretty straight, sir, and thatofthe thirfy-five thousand democrats of my State, sir, for whom I feel authorized to speak. I never will leave a shade of suspicion on my career as to any bargain. I've seen enough of that, sir, in the celebrated bargain alleged to have taken place in 18-34, though said to be disproved, ^between Clay and Adams.) But the mere suspicion of it has caused the sun of Ashland to set for ever! I'll commit no such error. I'm only commencing my political life. I'm ambitious, sir; and I don't know where 1 may want to go, sir, before 1 die. I may want to go to the Senate. (He is a candidate for United States Senator.) And sir, there's no putting a curb on the ambition of a wild boosier. (Loud laughter, and Wise heartily joined in.) I never will leave a suspicion of any such thing, sir, on my political garments. And lastly, sir, I'll teU the gentleman, who seems to hope much from the apparent discord in the democratic ranks, that if he expects to profit from that, he knows nothing of the bonds that bind democrats together. Sir, when it comes to the last choice,the true democrat knows nothingol geographical lines or distinctions. Take a man from the North, the South, the Cast, or the West, if he's the man of our ' universal choice, we go for him with one true heart as one man. And although there may appear to be some small differences as to a choice for a Presidential candidate, now, yet when we have settled all this as a family matter, take care, gentlemen whigs, how you interfere. (Great laughter, and cry ol "oh, of course, honor among thieves.") It'll he worse than interfering between man and wife. (Laughter.) Sir, when we do unite, we unite as lirm and as true as steel. When the Democratic Convention has met, and settled those differences and named their man, it will be worse than idle for you to interfere. Not all your efforts, with all your "facte," and tariff, and bank, and abuse and crimination, and recrimination, and all the candidates you bring, and all the influence and power yott can command, can pre. vent the successful elevation of that same Democratic candidate, whoever he may he, to the next Presidential Chair. As soon as he aat down,ha was warmly congratulated by all parties. Mr. Wis* got the floor for to morrow, and tho House adjturned. Albany, f Correspondence of the Hernld.J, Dec. 26, 1842.

Bigelow. ol Otsego Co., Adjutant General, and a young Albanian tneson.l learn, ot a Methodist priest, named Vunderlip, as Messenger. His Excellency, that is to be in a day or two, is a practical temperance man ol some twenty years standing. He will, therefore, not follow tho example ot Seward, by mdulgtng the populace, on New Year's day with a prolusion of Champagne^dndetra, Hock, Acc.,&c., but he will conform to the rational propriety, by ofiering the simple beverage of lemonade. The first act of legislation will probably be to repeal the law under which Weed & Co. have each made splendid fortunes. 'Ihere are some dozen candidates tor the succession. U'Kielly, ot Rochester, Hubbard, of Chenunge, Danly.oi Ltica, Slamm, Bryant, aud Bennett, [a mistake Hub] ol New York, all the Albany p.inters, boukoindeis and editors, besides a score or so lioin various other portions ot ihe Slate.
