NEW YORK HERALD York, Thursday, February S3, ISM. Herald Literary l?rpot. All the new liteiary publication! of the day, issued on the cheap cash system, are for sale at the HERALD LITERARY DErOT of CHEAr LITERATURE, North Weat corner of Fulton and Nassau strerU Call, aee end buy. From Washington. Our private accounts from Washington continue to be very interesting?not so much in reference to the two great parties, as to the movements of Captain Tyler and the guard. We are positively informed, that in spite of all the rutnora of changes, removals, Arc., nothing is yet settled in the White] House. It is yet doubtful what changes may be made in the cabinet? doubtful il Mr. Webster can be driven out? doubtful if Mr. Cushing can be Degged in.? One thing is, however, certain. The contest between the Captain's guards, including the " consti uitional part, and the locolocos, if waxing nouer and hotter every day. The general expectation in the White House is, that the Captain and the guard ! can capture the "old democracie," or rend it into a thousand fragments. The mass meeting called by Major Noah, next month, at Military Hall, is to b? the first great gun. The Vomers Case?Strange Facts coming out ? Boys Bagged as Grouse.?A most singular development was made in reference to the conduct of Commander McKenzie, before the Recorder, yes ter, on a writ of )xabta? corpus. It will be found in another column. On the home voyage of this celebrated craft, from St. Thomas to New York, it appears in evidence, that Commander McKemie double-ironed several naval apprentices, and had them tied up, besides, in bags or sacks, asfyou would shot grouse. Is this a specimen either of naval discipline, or of the humani ty of the Commander 1 The astonishment of the court and audience was unparalleled. No wonder that it was so. We beg, for heaven's sake, that the Court Martial will hasten to acquit Captain McKenzie?approve his conduct?and let him have a chance of safety and peace, before it is too late. More facts of this kind will raise a storm that cannot be allayed by the theory of Professor Espy?and it may perchance hasten the Millennium before the 21st of .viarcn, me aay sei aown oy rropnei miner. The Lispenard Case.?The summing up in this great and exciting case, will commence this morning, at 10 o'clock. The speeches will proceed in the following order:?The Hon. Willis Hall will commence on the part of the defence. He will be followed by Mr. Charles O'Connor for the plaintiffs. Then Mr. David B. Ogden on the opposite side ; and the concluding speech by Mr. George Wood for the plaintiffs. These gentlemen are probably not surpassed in legal talent and ability by any members of either this or any other bar in the United States; and the immense importance of the present case will probably call forth some of the finest specimens ol forensic eloquence that have ever been given in this country. We shall send our reporters, and give a full and impartial report of the speeches delivered, as also of the Judge's charge. The interest and excitement of tko ooan MMAS. ? 1 111 a1 us*. t-ttou OK U|'UU m*T iIicirnac, will VUlllinUC SO 1 until the decision of the jury is known. Governor Again.?Captain Tyler intends, it is said, to appoint Noah Governor of Wisconsin. Noah was once Governor of Grand Island, which he managed with great skill, and is therefore well acquainted with the duties of the office. We are in favor of Governor Gil Davis, of Coney Island; but as Noah hashis old robes on hand, covered with second hand lace, we interpose no objections. The Prize Fight Trials.?There will be no extra session of the Oyer and Terminer in West Chester county,'to try the persons indicted as concerned in the Prize Fight at Hastings. The next session will be held at Bedford, on the fourth week in April. The Court is held alternately at White Plains and Bedford. At the Special Circuit Court, held this week at White Plains, the fifteen cases against the Corporation of this city, for damages incurred by citizens of West Chester, by the overflow of water on the breaking of the Croton Dam above Sing Sing, were all postponed, owing to the absence, in Europe, of Mr Cartwright, the engineer, who is the principal witness for plaintiffs. Discords at a Concert.?Quite a flare-Bp took place the other evening at a concert given in Philadelphia, where the Seguins and Shnvall sung. We cannot get exactly at the merits of the case through the newspapers?but it appears that Seguin was cool and careful of his own interest, [Why not1?] and Shrivall quite sentimental, oxcitable and eloquent. Shrivall has several amiable eccentricities. Can any humane person give us a correct account of the fracat 1 Horsemanship.?The riding schools are very fashionably attended this winter. That one conducted in the upper end of the Bowery, by Professor Davis, is giving great satisfaction. Mr. Davis is so au fait in his profession, having for many years superintended the best menage in London, that his pupils in horsemanship learn as much in one momh asis usually done in two or three. His attention, courtesy, and skill (are rapidly filling up the chool. Nrw Jttdge of the Soterior Court.?The Hon. A Vanderpoel had been nominated Judge of the Superior Court, in place of Daniel B. Tallmadge. He will be confirmed. Mr. Vanderpoel is a man of talent and integrity?in spite of all the jibes and jeers of Wall street. The Hon. Peter A. Jay.?The different Courts adjourned yesterday, out of respect to the memory of this distinguished member of the New York bar. Numerous resolutions were passed appropriate to the solemnities of the occasion, and to the great worth of the deceased. Mesmerism in Pouncs ? Daniel Webster, with his hands over Captain Tyler's head, so that the latter can't give the " old democracie" all the spoils they want. James's New Novel.?Of all our popular novelists, James, if not the most brilliant, is decidedly the most agreeable. No one leads us with such winning and attractive manner to the olden days of chivalry and romance, and we nev r weary of him as a guide. His last novel, " Forest Days," is devoted to the recital ot the exploits ol the bold yeoman, Robin Hood?the hero of a hundred ballads, and legendary tales. It is one of the l,*Bt things James has yet written The Harpers and Mr Winchester have both issued it, and the quarto edition of the latter,and the octavo of the former, are both lor sale at one shilling, at the Herald Literary Depot. Winchester has ulso issued the second parts of " Martin Chuzxlewit." " Tom Bnrke." " L. H. D.." " Windsor Castle," and " The Loitering# of Arthur O'Leary"?nil in one extra New World, for twelve and a ball cents!

There was the customary display of flags at every corner, and from the mastheads of the ships in our harbsr. The inclemency of the weather somewhat eclipsed the splendor of the out-door military displays ; but ample umends were made a' the ball-rooms and public assemblages, in the evening. The exercises at the Tabernacle were the most varied and the most interesting, on many accounts. There was an extraordinary commingling of milita ry splendor, music, eloquence, orignt eyes, temperance and poetry, forming altogether such a fete as only such a city as New York could manuiacture. Long before the hour of commencing the exercises, (7 o'clock P. M.,) the Tabernacle was thronged, trom the platform to the ceiling, by a dense mass of all ages, and in which the ladies were particularly conspicuous, in numbers, beauty, and elegance of I dress. The whole tout ensemble was indeed striking in the extreme. The gay trappings of the military ?the splendid flag?air and lovely members of the Young Ladies' Hope Society?the platform, crowded by the clergy, lawyers, doctors, and many ol our most respectable citizens?the equally diversified appearance ol the vast assembly in the body of the house and the galleries? all made up a picture of surpassing brilliancy. After some pieces of music had been executed in the first style, by the band from Governor's Island, and the entry of the Washington Temperance Guards, the company of National Cadets, and 1st Company of Nassau Guards of Brooklyn City, the Rev. Dr. Pisk, delivered his oration. The subject was one already pretty tolerably worn to tatters?" The character ot the Immortal Washington," but his reverence dressed it up with a wonderful profusion of elegant garments, woven in the looms of fancy and imagination. These holydays orations, however, and more's the pity ! don't look very well on paper, and so we must mercifully refrain from attempting to transfer the Doctor's florid imagery and flowing rhetoric to our columns. Then came some pretty music, after which Jamks R. Whiting, Esq presented, with a number of exceedingly appropriate remarks, a splendid flag, bearing a copy of Sully's celebrated painting of " Washington Crossing the Delaware," previous to the battle of Trenton, painted by A. D. Browere, of Brooklyn. This flag is really a splendid affair. Then came more music from the band, and the "Star Spangled Banner" was sung by the Ladies of the " Young Ladies' Hope Society," with great sweetness and effect. Then the sentry at the flag was relieved, and more music burst from the band. The Hon. T. Frelinghtiysin then delivered his address on the " Effect of Temperance on the Military Character of a Nation," but it was somewhat prosy, though very unexceptionable in language and sentiment. More music followed, and then came the presentation to the 1st Company of Washington Temperance Guards, of an "riginal letter and a splendid engraving, with the autograph of Father Mathew, the apostle of temperance in Ireland, of a Chapel built at his individual expense, in an elegant frame, by the Rt. Rev. Dr. John Power. Thanks were returned on the part of the Guards by the "Kentucky Poet," Wm. Wallace, Esq. More music and singing followed ; and then the immense assembly dispersed. A gTeat number of balls were given in various parts ol the city. Amongst them that at the Tivoli Saloon was the most magnificent. It was, indeed, a superb affair. It was strictly a naval and military ball, and seldom have so many of our most distinguished naval and military gentlemen met in a ball room in this city. Never was any festive scene graced by a more brilliant array ol " gallant men and bonnie lasses." The decorations of the splendid saloon?the lights?the supper?the entire arrangements, redounded in the highest degree to the credit of Mr. Denman and the managers. Dancing was kept up till an early hour this morning, and the gay scene will long live in the recollections of those who were fortunate enough to b? present. City Intelligence. Tiik Somers Boys.?The examination under the writ of habeas corpus, before Recorder Tallmadge, was resumed yesterday morning in the Court room of the General Sessions. He stated that he had decided to discharge McKinley,\on the grounds previously alleged by his counsel,and published on Tuesday morning in the Herald. The Acting U. S. District Attorney offered to prove the recognition ef several of the prisoners whose names are registered on the rolls. The counsel for prisoners contended that they were entitled to their discharge under the law that regulates master and apprentice,and then offered testimony to show the cruel treatment they had received from Com'r McKenzie, while on board the outliers as prisoners. Altai inry were uuuuic iruited, and then placed in bags, the tops of which were kept closed until the prisoners complained of suffocation, when they were partially opened. That this treatment continued until within two days sail of this port, and was of such a harsh and tyrannical character, that as apprentices, they were justly entitled to their discharge. The recital of brutality astonished all present, and the Recorder signified his intention to give an opinion this morning. Thomas Parks, well known as a thief and burglar, who escaped last week while in transitu from the Police offic to the lock-up prison attached to the Watch house, was re-arrested yesterday morning on "The Points," by watchman Pullis, who deserves the thanks of the community forhia energy in securing this rogue for *hat justice that he deserves at the hands of the law. Niblo's Concerts a i.a Mcsard.?The first of these concerts went off brilliantly on Tuesday even ing. Mrs. Sutton was in finer voice than we ever heard her. The cavatinai were splendidly executed, and loudly encored. There is a purity and richness in her tones,and a masterly execution in h?r singing that carries her far above all others. Signor De Begnis was more than usually effective in his songs, and was well received. The duets between Mrs Sutton and the Signor were eminently successful ; and the duet, " When a little Farm we keep," was repeated with the greatest applause. Signor Martini made a successful debttf?his voice is a rich baritone; and in his duet with Mrs. Sutton, he appeared to great advantage, and as well as in his aria, received deserved applause. The orchestra was excellent, and their beautiful execution of the last new waltzes, both in the concert room and promenade saloon, delighted every one. The next concert will take place on Friday, (to-morrow) and from the great pleasure manifested by all on Tuesday, there will be a crowded auditory. Apropot? we should like to hear De Regnis and Martini in a duet. Me. EniToR? I have been fined #3 bythe Corporation Attorney, forcasting coal ashes upon the pavement in the first ward, in order to prevent persons slipping down. My informer is Mr. Bayiis, the inspector of this ward. Flease be so kind as to inform me through your columns if this worthy street inspector gets one naif for informing, and his regular salary in addition?for, if so, I think in these dull times the merchants should rise en mn?u, and petition for redress. A Sufferer. Thf. Weather is a mixture of every thing disagreeable Now that Espy, the " Storm King," receive# a aalary trom Government of #2000 a year, we hope he will losa no time, in bringing about an improvement in our climate. We certainly should have more seasonable weather now that we have a paid Government regulator. From Fi-orida.?We learn that the post at Palatka was to be broken up, and also all the poms in East Florida, and the trooi* are to be removed to Tampa Bay to await further orders Chatham Theatre ?The name of Mr. Momop appears on the Chatham bill for a benefit to-night.? The bare announcement of this talented gentleman I wf abould think aufficient to fill every neat in the houae Mr J.

Before Judge Oakley. The Great LitranARD Will Ca?e. Feb. J1?On the opening ot the Coert thia morning, long before the caie was returned by the counael, the court room was filled?every teat occupied, and every atauding place secured. A tort of feverish excitement begins to prevail on the subject, especially among those directly and indirectly intei cited in the result of the trial. On examination.we find this morninrtw tk... i,.v>. ihn. far been examined ninety-fire witnesses. This is the ninth Jay ot the trial. It wns'atntisiug to witness the ilutter, and hear the rustle ot " Heralds" this morning in tbe court room, as the Judge, jury, counsel, witnesses, people, aud all, were reading over the report and account of yesterday's " pattagt d'armts.'' evidence ron pLanvrirrs siil'mid. Dr. Valentine Mutt sworn aud examined. Mr. O'C'onnoe ? What is your prolession. Dr. Motl? Dr. Mot i.?1 have been a surgeon for nearly torty years, aud am one of the Medical Faculty of the University.

Dr. Mott.?No, air, I never have. Thoae peneni stated to be idiota are born auch, and they never afterwards be. come intelligent. There are some remarkable cases ol congenital imbecility in Switzerland. Mr. O'Connor.?1 said *' forty years but Alice Lispenard was lorty.eight yean of age when she went to MrStewart's, and fifty-five when she died. That is all, Dr. Mott. Oen. Sanfohd did not cross examine. Mr. O'Connor here offered in evidence several deeds,Jcc. He then called Dr. Jamks McDonald.?1 was for many yea's In charge olthe Bloomingdale Insane Hospital, and have now under my charge a private in'titution of the kind. I have seen and known much of insane persons, both in this country and also in foreign countries. Mr. O'Connor.?Have you ever known any cases of congenital weakness, or imbecility of mind, to be followed, alter the age of puberty, by any particular developement or improvement of the mental powers? Dr. McDonald.?! never have. Such a fact would be altogether an anomaly. 1 believe it was never known. Mr. O'Connor.?From birth to puberty are they sometimes capable of being taught many small matters? Sr. McDonald.?Most idiots are capaDle of being taught to a certain degree?in such matters as are in a manner mechanical, and do not involve the exercise ol the higher faculties of the mind. They have a degree of memory ; can be taught to do many trifling duties, to run Mr. O'Connob.?Have they the faculty of reflecting / Dr. McDonald?They have net; they are unable to reflect. Being further questioned by Mr. O'Connor, the witness proved the very high reputation of a work by Dr. Abercrombie, of Edinburgh, relative to thia general subject. Robrbt Manning, Eiq ?I am a lawyer ; I know Robert Stewart. Mr. O'Connob.?Have you ever heard Mr. Robert Stewart my any thing relative to the value of the eatate left by Mr. Anthony Liipenard 7 Mr. Manning ?I hare heard Mr. Robert Stewart, on one occaiion, say that the estate of old Mr. Lispe. nard might be said to amount to about $000,000. This was said more than twenty yean ago. Dr. Graham?In answertolqtiestiona by Mr. O'Connor, Dr. O. stated, I have had much knowledge of the value ol real estate iD this city. In 1906, I believe that the Lispenard property was worth $10,000,000. The estate contained sixty or eighty acres. There was some laughter here ; as Mr. O'Connor insisted that Dr. Graham, who is quite aged, meant not $10,000,000, but $1,000,000. Dr. G., however, persisted in his statement. Mr. O'Connob here bested. Defence Resi'Med. Mr. Jonathan Hatfield, (aged.)?I reaide at 111 Charlton atreet. The old eatate of Mr. Anthony Liapa nard was chiefly in a atate ot meadow. The principal improvements on thia eatate were made by Mr. A. L. Stewart, after old Antheny'a death, and were begun before the last British war. The witneaa here went on, sometime) in a very humorous manner, to give a sort of historical account of the atate and condition of the Liapenard part of the city in ancient timea. Ezf.kiei. Ylomans ?I have for thirty years or more known the Lispenard meadows This witneaa teatified to the desolate and unimproved condition of the ancient Lispenard eatate, and to the extensive improvements made upon it by Mr. A. L. Stewart. Mrs. Sarah Ann Stewart recalled.?Being questioned by Gen. Sanford, Mrs Stewart stated that previous to the former examination, she did make certain papers or me moranda respecting the evidence of witnesses. Thia was necessary, for the reason that I was the only member of the family who could attend to the case when it waa before the Surrogate?one member of the lamily being ab. sent in one country, another in another, and at to Col. Webb, he had tufficient to do to attend to hit paper and politics. 1 was the deputy lawyer in the case, if you will allow me so to expresa it. Theae memoranda contain nothing but what the witnesses themselves stated. Cross-examined by Mr. O'Connor?What was the date of your lather's death! Mrs. Stewart?The date of my father's death waa 29th March, IS3S. in relation to the papers ipolten of, some of these witnesses declined receiving them-, nevertheless 1 did leave the papers with such witnesses, in order to refresh their memories as to dates.

The Court here adjourned, to give counsel an opportunity to prepare their speeches, Which will commence tomorrow (Thursday.) Literary Notices, The Artist?A monthly Lady's.Book. The number for March is just issued, and commences the second volume ef this popular periodical. The " Artist" was the first to introduce into this country, and to 6pread before the public,those most beautiful embellishments called "Engravings in color." They have been universally admired by the public, and their merits fully appreciated. In this present number the wreath encircling the address is one of exquisite delicacy and neatness; the colonng is beautiful. The plate of the latest Paris fashions is also one of equal neatness and good taste. The plate of colored flowers is most admirable, as also another colored plate, "the Countess Hortensia." As to the literary conteats, they fully sustain the high repulation which the Artist has justly acquired. This periodical has become one of great popularity with the ladies, who are best qualified to admire and ap preciate the 'superior delicacy and beauty of the embelishments. Published by F. Quarre, 64 Keade street?#3 per annum. Graham's Magazine.?The March number of this standard work has just come to hand. The plates, as usual, are of great beauty.

[Correspondence of the Herald.1 Washington, Tuesday night,) Feb 21, ld43 J Uenrial Jackson's Fine?Bankrupt Repeal mil?Repudiation and Assumption? minister to China. cf Sr: tp dpli'a and repudiation,^ evidently becoming inore and more a subject of immense interest, us you stated in a leading article the oiher day, which article has been the subject of much talk among the members ol both Houses. To-day, in the House, the very first business that came up was this very question. On the old motion to print 10,0U0 copies of Mr. Infersoil's report, adverse to the $2(X),000,000 State Stock project, Mr. Thompson, of Miss., made a flaming speech. And as he is the exponent of the views of all the south western States, I send you his speech very full. Mr. Thompson (aid? Mr. Spkakkr?In the course of the debate upon this subject, a disclaimer has been made by gentlemen on the other side that nothing personal was meant towards the representatives ot Mississippi on this Door Therefore, Sir,these remar Its must have been made purely as an attack upon the State which I have the honor to represent, and it is in that view that I desire now to answerthem. In my reply, I shall confine my remarks entirely to the defensive, and will not be betrayed into an attack on one of the other 2fl States. It is enough for me that a State has acted?that she ia her sovereign ca [ pacity hm willed a thing pertaining tuber internal police, and I Teel bound to admit that she cannot do a dishonorable act. In the Supreme Court of the United State*, the justices regard the decisions made by the highest judicial tribunals of the municipal regulations of the Slate as binding on them. The policy she mar adopt may be destructive of her beat interests, hut not dishonest or dis honorable These twenty-six States, I trust, will stand by and sustain each other; and should an effort be made to tlx opprobrium upon a y one, the others will rally round und sustain the suspected party. Instead of that, hare we not seen an anxiety in some ol the States, and even on this floor, to flx a stain on Mississippi, instead of hearing her defence with patience and kindness, like sisters gan grene with jealousy at her former unrivalled prosperity, are swift in the expression of their opinions of her fall, and evince an anxiety that all the world should unhesita. tingly and uncharitably condemn her. Some of the States who annually rob her by virtue of your plundering protective policy of more than sufficient to pay every dollar of interest which may be annually due on all of her public debts, seem delighted to publish te the world her imputed dis honor. Treated in this way, for all auch expression* of opinion and attempts at chastisement, she entertains th<most soverei.'n and ineffable contempt. The gentleman from N. York assumed first that the Legislature ami the Governor represented the State. In the second place,that the Legislature had passed a law authorising the subscrip tionol $5,000,(MX) of stock in the Union Bank, and to pay for that stock had authorised the issue ot $5,000,000 of bonds, pledging the State for their payment. In the third place that theGovernor did issue $5,000,600 of h inda for the State of Mississippi; 4th,that the Bank received them as the agent of the State, disposed of them at par, and now that the money was squandered, it was the duty of the Statu, in Rood faith, to acknowledge and pay them. I hope I state the gentleman's argument with fullnesi and all fairneii. (Granger nodded.) In the first place, I deny that the legislature and Governor represent the State in

an unqualified sense. JPe have a Constitution and that is the paramount law. It fixe* limits to the action of the Legislature, and when it goes beyond those limits, its acts are null aad void. Every friend of Constitutional Government will yield this position. With the most liberal construction of State Constitutions, thea, I state the proposition thus, that the Legislatture and Governor re Sresent the State in all nets except such as are expressly enied to them, and all the world is bound to know what powers are denied to them. In the next place I deny that the State ever passed a law authorizing a stibscrip tion of $6,000,000 ot stock tor the paymentof which the State authorized the issue of $5,000,000 of bonds, pledging its faith for their redemption. It is true a bill of that character was read three times in the Legislature ot 1833. But before a bill pledging the faith of the State for a loan for payment of a debt can become a law,and receive the sanetion and effect ol law, our constitution requires now, and required then, that the bill shall be read three times by two distinct consecutive Legislatures, and in the mean time, to be published in three newspapers in the State. When the Legislature of 1833 adjourned, this bill had been read three tames, and was in the way ot becoming a law. But it was no more n law than the bill ou your table ( routing an Exchequer is a law, having Deen reaa twice, when the Constitution requires it to De read three times. The Constitution required this bill, pledging the faith of the States, to be read six times; and to call it a law when it has only been read three times and that in one legislature, is an outrageous frnud,fn legislation. Next,I deny that the Oovernor signed the Bonds of the State when ha signed the Union Bank Bonds, and affixed the seal of the State thereto. What he did was without authority, it was a fraud on the people, a violation of their constitutional rights, and therefore null and void Next I deny that the Bank was the agent of the State when she received these Bonds, and disposed of them in the market; because the Oovernor had executed them withou. authority, he disposed ot them by delivery to the Bank without authority ; the Bank received and sold them to Mr. Biddle without any authority from the people of Mississippi. The whole case then is this. There are $5,000,000 of bonds now standing out, signed by Gov. M'Nutt, with the great seal of the State affixed 'hereto. When these are presented, we admit that a prima facia case is made out against us. To this we plead non til factum. We say that these are not our act and deed, an I upon this issue we stand before the world. The burden of proof is upon us. We show our Constitution is the supreme law of the State. To pledge the faith of the State for the payment of a debt, this constitution requires that the bill be read six times by two legislatures ; the bill in pursuance of which these were is. sued, was read but three times by one legislature, and was therefore no law. We look into the contract, and we see that the purchaser not only had constructive, but actual notice or the provisions ef the Constitution.and the ininsufficiency of the law; because these facts are embodied in the contract ot sale. We therefore say you dealt with and trusted the uank? not the s ate We say, you muit look to the Bank for pay ment.and not to the State. And we will give you every facility in the collection of your money. But to admit them ax the ohligationx of the State, would be doing violence t? our fundamental law, ax well ax acknowledging an untruth. Tbia ix the poxition taken by the Legislature in regard to tho bondi, with which I moxt heartily concur. Now with regard to Gover or McNutt's position in this matter, whose course has been animadverted upon with so much severity. The gentleman from New York must recollect that Governor McNutt is not the State of Mississippi, and the Legislature did not adopt his reasoning, in resisting the acknowledgment of the bonds. As he signed the bonds, of course he cant deny his authority, which the people do. His position is this?he asserts that he delivered these bonds to the Banks as escroits, to be valid against the State upon the performance of certain coaditionx precedent. One was that the Bonds should not be sold below par. He asserts, and with truth, that they were sold below par, inasmuch ax they were sold on credit, while the bonds bore interest, by which th" State was largely defrauded. He asserts that by the endorsement of the hank, the bonds were changed into sterling bonds, in violation of the law of their creaton. He nsserts that there was fraud and collusion in tt<e sale of the bonds. And long since he apprised the holders that he would resist their payment ou these grounds. Years have elapsed since that declaration, and the holders of those bonds have made no effort to disprove the allegations. The Constitution of the State has this provision : "The Legislature shall direct by law in what manner and what courts suits may be brought against the State." In pursuance of which the Legislature passed a law giving jurisdiction to the high Court of Chancery oi all claims eg it ; and secures an appeal to either party lo the High Court of errors and Appeals. So far as I am informe), the judges of both these courts are favorably dianoxed toward the pavment of these bonds by the State. Why nave nol the holders o! those condemned nonas come torward and vindicated their rightful possession of them, in a legitimate wav7 Sir, they prefer to get the gentleman from New York to pour forth invec'ive on O v.

Thompson.?From thi? circumstance, the presumption is strong, if the conclusion is not inevitable, that they dared not come to the issue. But why all this attack on Gov. M'Nutt, who is now a private citizen 1 Our present Chief Magistrate was in the Senate at the memorable era of IS3S. He resisted with his vigorous intellect the panic and distress*1 feeling which con. trolled that Legislature. He entered his solemn protest on the Journal of the Senate, when they re(used to snhmit this bill to tha people in pursuance of the Constitution, against its taking effect as a law, on thegroundof its unconstitutionality. And three years afterwards the people of that State called him from private life, against his interest, his wishes, and his earnest protestations to the contrary, into the office of chief magistrate, as the representative and embodiment of the feel ings anil sernimems 01 inc people, particularly on inn subject. The ground ho took in 1838, the people endorsed in 1941. Hit proteit wu published in (he paper* of the State, and mutt have been known to the purchaser* of the bond*. We think we owe it to the canto of constitutional liberty to take the courae we have pursued. It hat cost ui no little effort to maintain the integrity ol our institution*. We have had obstinate prejudice* to encounter, the frowns and denunciation* of the interested to resist, and the averted looks of some of our best friends. Yet her courage ha* never failed?her *tep has not faltered; slandered and denounced,we have but stood the firmer in our purpose, waiting for our sister States to do us full and ample justice. We have passed the Rubicon, and alone we will go. We have the mms cnntcia recfi.and we will abide our time. Now, suppose we are wrong ; we have at least been manly, fearless and above disguise. If we are sinner*, winch I emphatically deny, we are bold sinner*. Our courage must command your respect,though our course may not meet your approbation. What we promise we expect to pay. We will not weak out ol our liabilities , nor preach homilies <i|>on the sanctity of con tracts.and keep none of our own. There are ten States of this Union now under protest, and one territory. My authority on this head is the " New York Herald,' and that is an authority which on these subjects gentlemen ol both parties, on this lloor, I believe, place implicit reliance upon. There are six morethat borrowed money to m e\ the demands upon their treasury. Seven more owe no debt. And thrue have passed as yet unscathrd. Why, then, pounce upon Mississippi? Her case will not furnish aprucedent for any of you to repudiate your just I-*-*- > r?? U.? Vnrk Mid he would not complain if we were to acknowledge the debt, but plead insolvency, I ut disliked thin reliance upon the constitution?(that ahiolitn idea) for the protection of the people*! righti. But I can say to the gentleman from Maryland that there ii one pan to which we ?an never come; there la one ileaiee of aelf-ahaatment at which the proud tpirit ol every Miaaisaippian will, he be whin or democrat, atart bark from with shuddering and Jiimay. Miaiiaaippi I never will, through 'one ol her representative! on tliia floor, prostrate heraell at the MllNl "I federal power, and with a craven spirit aay, "pay inr detdi, or J elae I'll disgrace myself by repudiation- Steal I will, unless jrou furnish ma with the means to sa*e me from starvation." It Mississippi does not pay her debts the aflair hail be all her own. She will softer the discredit and dishonor, if such it may be considered, in silence. She will never seek to thrust her burdens on her sister States. If she has more of that spirit by which she can raise men to heaven, thank God she has none of that other spirit by which she would attempt to drag angels down. The gen tleinan from Maryland says that the question is "Iteliel or Repudiation!" But i say that if you assume the debts of the State, to the amount of $200,000,000, then the question will be repudiation. And m advanCe here in my place, 1 avow the sentiment, in tnat event I am lor an open, immediate and unqualified repudiation of the whole mass. Should this vast Trojan horse (Cost Johnson's plan) with the en ginea of destruction concealed in its cavity, Ite introduced into this hall through a breach in the Constitution, the slid walls which fortify our liberty, the only remedy is repudiation. Aud if this remedy be not adopted, this hapnv and glorious Union will soon lie for aver severed in twain. The people ofthii country never will submit that the just should suffer for the unjust, the wiae for the unwise, the prudeut ior the imprudent. North Carolina never will submit to ata* to pay for the debt of Indiana New Jersey never will pay the debts of Pennsylvania? At the same time, sir, no man either in this House or out ol it, feels more keenly for the position of the indebted States than I do ; no man more willing to aid them by all Contlilulional means; and may my heart cease to beat before ever I rise iu my seat to reproach them in their difficulties. The entire indebtedness of all the States, cities, and the general government, is nearly $380,000 000; most of which is due abroad. The annual iuttrest is near $10,000,000. The experts of domestic produce in 1841, nere $106,000,000. The interest to be paid, therefore, is about 14 per cent; which is greater than the proflts upon the exports. It amounts to 83 cents upon every barrel of flour, and $4 36 upon every hag of cotton. It is evident, then, that the interest will be so much subtracted from the active circulation of tho country. The effort then to meet this interest, will involve the country still deeper in distress and bankruptcy; and at last, I fear we will give up the idea of pay ment as a hopeless undertaking. No government on earth, except this young giant, ever paid a foreign debt of any considerable amount, nnd I believe never will. The Dank circulation of England is ?30,000 000; her annual tax is ?80,000,000; the annual interest upon the pub lie debt is ?30,000,000. Suppose that interest was to be paid abroad, to Franceor this country,- to the 1st of Jan. 18447 It would drain England of every dollar of bullion in the country; and on that day her whole paper system would be involved in hopeless ruth. The purchase of a little foreign coin, a few years since, shook the bank of England to its very centre. The debt of France is near $1 ,<00,000,000; ana it is well known that her income is in adequate to meet the demands upon tne Treasury. me debt of Austria is $400,000,000; Russia, $150,000,000; Holland, $500,000,000. Spain has an acknowledged debt of $400,000,000, and unacknowledged debt of nearly $1,000, 000,000; and Portugal $100,000,(00. But these two last Governments are already hopelessly bankrupt. Prussia has $150,000,000- And if weturntothe S. American Republics, they have all suspended,with the exception of the Brazils, which is enjoying all the advantages of an expanded Bank circulation, which must soon explode, and leave that country in irredeemable insolvency. Now, then, sup I lose the debts of these States should not ha paid. Shall we desert our country as a band of thieves and robbers. Withered be the heart that would conceive such a thought, and blisteied be the tongue that would utter such a sentiment. These States aggregated and separately form my country. And the language of my heait is, ' May that country be always right!" But right or wrong, I will always stand by my country. In that event, however, what would become of the gentleman from New York? Would he go to Texas ? She has twice redudiated. To Mexico ? She is bankrupt, and has attempted to repudiate her debts. Would ne go to England, the arrogant tone of whose citizens he has attempted to reflect upon this floor T to England, the great highway robber of the world! To England, where he would And friendly, hypocritical abolitionist, to aggrieve and oppress outraged Ireland ! to England, where 26,000,000of pretended freemen are laboring and toiling by day, and shivering with cold and huncr..r I,,. nioVit in not- it,uOUQ7M t.nrdi nnd nronrietors of the country the interes* upon her debt?a 3ebt contracted in fraud'and peipetuated in the blood of her ppople? a debt which ia grinding the face of the vatt millions till patience ceases to be a virtue! England ia the very mother of repudiation. There are more atainaon her hiatory than upon that of any other nation on the face of the earth.? I pace by her frequent depreciation of the current coin by which she defrauded her public creditora. The robbery of the funda in the Exchequer in the 2d Charles's reign. The cancellation of $17,000,000 at 8 per cent, by $3,000,000 at 3 per cent, the foundation of her present debt. The appropriations by the long Parliament ot the Church lands, and the restoration of thoae lands,awhile they retained the money for which they were aold. In 1797, she forced the Bank to suspend; then declared that the depreciated paper of that bank was equivalent to specie. Under heavy penalties, she forced her creditors to receive that pape- as equivalent to specie, although it had depreciated 10, 20,30 and as low as 41 per cent below par. And by this financial operation she saved, and the creditors lost upon the debt contracted previous to 1800, over $137,000,000. Surely this ia not the nation to preach good faith and punctuality in payment to other governments. Will he go to France 7 It was hern that the depreciated asaignats were raised to par by guillotining those who refused to receive them as such. In 1797, to carry forward the campaign against Genoa and Italy, it was ne. ary to raise $36,000,000. The French debt was then $988,000,900 And to raise the money, this expedient was fallen upon, without notice to the fundholders, or excuse, save the wants of the army. Two-thirds of the debt was struckoff, amounting to $844,000,000, leasing the pubi c debt at $333 000,000. Here was an acknowledged repudiation of vast amount. Spain, Austria, Holland and all the South American republics have repudiated Where .then will tha gentleman go, unless it be te the Ottoman Porte? (A Voir r?"That's a hard money country, Granger won't go there.") It is trua he would there meet with bright eyes and rosy cheeks in abundance, (laughter,) and in the opinion of my friend from Illinois, the gentleman's taste* run quite as strongly in that direction as they do in any other. (Roaistof laughter-, and a cry of "Granger would look well in the Grand Turk's harem ") Mr. Thompson here referred to the debt incurred by us Ho?rtl,.?lnno-w Wop on,! roa,l from thfl Mi mnirfi nf Jefferson, explaining and justifying; the failnreto provide for the payment of a large proportion of that debt. He also referred to the billa of credit issued by the several States at that period, amounting to $.200,000,000, and never redeemed, and asked who in those days had the harJi hood to censure either the General Government or particular States for such failure. He concluded thus :? " The gentleman from Massachusetts has struck the wrong key ia supposing that we can be bullied into the assumption of these debts. This is notthe lesson which we learned from his lather ; who, as a patriot, taught us to do our duty to our countrv, and leave consequences to take care or themselves. His language is ours : sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish, we will stand by our judgments.and never counsel with our fears. And If O.Britain means to be the Great Hiirh Sheriff of the world, and goes upon the Quixotic expedition of making nations pay their debts, she will soon be made willing to write upon the executions, " Satisfied in Jull." (Roars of laughter.) A great party cry in this country has been " confidence, confidence; we must restore confidence." It was the great catsh word in the contests of 1840 ; and that, too, hy the very party who sustained the banks in their open an 1 acknowledged repudiation of their debts ; this led to a destruction of all confidence in the banks. This was followed hy the failure of individuals to meet their obligations. And they claimed the same right as the hanks to have their suspensions legalized. This was granted by the passage or stop laws and stay laws in the States, and in the shape of the Bankrupt Law, passed here hy the same lell party, and which enabled individuals to repudiate their contracts. This destroyed all confidence between individuals. The tax payer next grew restive under his burthen, and he could not see how banks and individuals could be relieved from their debts hy legislative infer lerence, while the States were required the uttermost farthing upon their imprudent obligations This defection of the tax payer impaired confid-nce in State credit. To relieve the States this sameparty then laid unholy hands upon the land revenue, and distributed it among them. The effect of this was not to restore confidence in State credit. It disturbed confidence in this government at home and destroyed it abroad. And now comes the last scene in this drama; the issuing of $500,000,000 of the stock of the United Stat's, when we are unable to command the means to meet our ordinary expenditures ; the effect of this will be to destroy all confidence in the government itself, and a fatal stab will be given to constitutional liberty. The gentleman from Maryland asks what then shall be done. I sav, economise your ex|iente? and husband y our resources?borrow no money? contract no debts?take ntf the prohibitory duties and the shackles to your commerce : say to the States in a decided tone that we cannot take your debt* on our shoulders, and it is vain and worse than vain to harbor such an expectation Say to them, take your own burdens?meet your difficulties like men?whatever can be done, do it boldly and fearlessly. Let us h adopt for this general govern ment a permanent financial system, and let all depend upon the profits of a regular industry, and in this plain way, my word for it, the country will soon be prosperous and happy." After he had concluded, the llouae went into Committee of the Whole, and took up the subject to appropriate ?*0,000 for establishing a system of electro magnetic telehraphs in this ?.ountry. This was finally carried in Committee. Mr. Cavk Johnson moved that half that sum, or VlO.lSSI, ue oevoieu in n srnrn in iiirriu^iiv menu, under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury. (Roars of laughter.) A Member?Let us also include Millerinn in the appropriation. (Increased Laughter.) Stanley.?I'll vote for it if the gentleman from Tennessee will become the subject of Mesmerism.

The restriction was stricken out. Mr. J. C.

Lost. Mr. Fii.lmork said, that they had five appropriation hills touct upon, which were indispensably necessary lor the support of the Government. They were for the payment of navy pensions, making appropriations for Indian treaties, for fortifications, and harbors and rivers: and in addition to these, the civil and diplomatic appropriation bill Nine days only of the session remained ; and, under these circumstances, he felt bound to press business upon the House. Mr. Everett, of Vermont, doubted very much the expediency of this mission, and the mode of unrestricted appropriation. Mr. Adams said he hoped the bill would be passed ?he had originally reported the bill restricting the expenditure of the $40,000 according to the provisions of a statute regulating our diplomatic intercourse, but on consultation with the Secretary of Stale, he had offered the proposition to strike out the restriction. He was of opinion that the sum might prove inadequate, but he had no doubt that both Hou-es of the next Congress would make up any deficiency. He was perhaps aa much disposed as any gentleman who had addressed the House to a want of confidence in the present administration, but ho could not refuse this appropriation on such ground. Both the speeches of the gentlemen from New York, (Messrs. Clark and Gordon) had the same cast?it was deep, very deep at the bottom of their remarks, but still it was the same sort, the same objection as to want of confidence. He had no time to answer all their arguments He hoped the bill would be passed. Mr. Holmes, of South Carolina, insisted that the commercial interests of the nation required the pasgage of this measure. He should not hesitate about trusting the Executive. All the speeches we had to-day, were intended to effect the spring elections, and nothing else. Mr. McKeon admitted he would be willing to vote for a proper appropriation for an agent to go out to China, and look after our commercial interests. But as the present bill was intended to be framed, he could not support it. It was proposed to strike out by the gentleman from Massachusetts, to leave the whole amount at the discretion of 'he Executive. He, (Mr. M'K ,) would prefer to let the restriction stand, and then, umixr the law, the minister'* salary would be $9,000, and his outfit $9,000. The State Department had, he believed, something like $3l),000 for contingencies for foreign missions, annually appropriated Part of that sum might be applied. Hut if the restriction was struck out, the discretion of the Department covered the expenditure of the contingencies and this additional appropriation also. The President might give the whole to the Minister. He wa9 disposed to be liberal in the matter, but he was apprehensive we were making too much noise about this Chinese mission. It should be treated as a matter of- business, as he had reason to believe European governments were acting without bustle. If, in addition to these appropriations, we should send out the Pennsylvania and some smaller vessels, as he had heard suggested, we should certainly have a splendid andan expensive embassy. We could accomplish our purposes of trade, he thought, by less ostentatious efforts. Our small fleet now in the Chinese seas, had already given some evidence of our means as a nation. We would gaiu nothing by an extravagant display with that shrewd people. He did not object to the restriction in the bill becauso of the money being expended by the present Executive. He thought it proper that it should be restricted, no matter who was the Executive. Taevote was taken on striking out the restriction and carried. Mr. Bronson, of Maine, moved, as a substitute for the bill, $10,000 tor an agent to go to China, examine and report to this government. His motion was rejected. The committee then rose and reported the bill to the House. On the Speaker taking the Chair, Mr. Adams moved the previous question on the bill, and it was sustained. This excited a great deal of laughter, as Mr. Adams always opposes the previous question, and never votes for it. How ever, the question prevailed, and the bill was read a third time and passed?ayes, 96 ; noes, 50. So there is a chance for a lot of hungry < ffice seekers to try to goto China. is decided ; a northern man, not from Massachusetts, is to have it. Six ships of war are to go there.
