No sligh i cause could have effected so difficult a work as the unioi t of all Germany for one great and general object. In tin prosecution of this scheme, Germany, notivitnstandiiif the number and diversity of its states, acquires politica - unity, establishes an identity of national leeling, and st cures lor itself that rank amongst nations to w hich its ex n tent, its resources, and its character entitle it. i) There is a continually increasing demand in all th< 0 states of the Zoll Vcrein for most of the im|iortaut article d of the produce of the United States. For example, in is:! [) the Union imported 148,3:22 roll centners (each centner ' equal to K'H pounds) of our tobacco, whilst in IHl'2 the im pollution of the same article amounted to -J 18.7-1!) /oil ecu tuers. The deninud fur our cotton and ricu within tin same period has increased in a similar ratio. In return for these large exports, we receive a coinpa ratively small amount of German manufacture*, and tin articles which we do receive are, for the most part, sue I as are not produced in the United States, e. g., looking glass plates, silks, toys, Sic. The difference is paid us ii cash. Kmittration from Germany to the United States present . a subject of ir re at imnortancc to us. We receive from th mates associated in the German Union most valuable emi grants, consisting chiefly of farmers of excellent cluirac lers and industrious habits, who bring to their adoptei country sufficient gold and silver to enable them to put chase and settle lands. The following official statement made to the Chamber of Deputies of the kingdom of Bava ria, which does not contain one-seventh part of the inha bitants of the Union, will show the state of emigration ii that country. Krom 1835 to 1839 the total emigration fron Bavaria alone was? Males 12,80 Females 11,70 ' 21,uO f Vi7.: to America 18,93' J " France 33 1 " Prussia 1 ' " Oreceee 11 " Algiers H " Places unknown, who got off without passports, and mostly went to the United States 5,01 24,Ml The amount of money which these emigrants bore wit them, as far as it is known to the Bavarian Govertimeir is nearly seven millions of guilders?equal to abou $2,800,000 ; but, in consequence of the heavy tax whic is levied, not only in Bavaria but throughout a great pai of Germany, upon money and other personal property tn ken out of the country by emigrants, is is probable tha few of the persons enumerated made a declaration to tin Government of more than one-half of their property. W may reasonably suppose, therefore, that those person must have taken with them nearly twelve millions of guil ders?equal U about $J,8'J0,0(MI. The number and value of the people who come to us from all Germany may thu be well appreciated, not only in their personal character but in the addition they make to our actual wealth. In order to remove the impediment to emigration pre sented in the heavy tax imposed ou the property of th emigrants, I have, by your direction, instructed the mini* * ter of the United States at Berlin, Mr. VVheaton, who ha been furnished with full powers for that purpose, to con - elude special conventions for the abolition of the droit <i ? auhaiiir and droit df detraction between the United State I and the following German States, who have se\erally ex pressed their readiness to enter into such arrangement . viz :? , His Majesty the King of Bavaria. His Majesty the King of Saxony. ' His Majesty the King of Wurtemburg. jj Hisjltoyal Highness,, the F.iector of Hesse. J His Itoyal Highness, the Grand Duke of Hesse. His Royal Highness, the Grand Dukeof Baden, ii Powers were also at the same time given to Mr. Whes f ton to negotiate treaties of commerce and navigatioi ' with the grand duchies of Mecklenburg, Schwerin, am Oldenburg, two States not yet included in the Custom .' Union. j In view of these and other advantages which the con - temptation of this subject held out, the minister of tin ; United State* at Berlin had been instructed to use ever; ' exertion in his power to place our relations with the <?et man Customs Union on the best and most friendly foot iiig ; and the remit in, that the basis of u conventiona , commi'rcial arrangement has just been agreed upon, (am - submitted for the consideration and action of this govern ment,) between llis Majesty the King of Prussia, in behal of Prussia, and all the States associated in the Custom t 1 nion, and the minister at Berlin, on the part of tliP T'ni t ted States; which, ifsanctioneil by Congress, wouldeffec. > the long cherished object of procuring the reduction o i the present duty on our tobacco, secure the continued art ' million of our cotton free of all duties, and prevent tin imposition of any higher duty on rice than tliut which i at present imposed?that article,as is already known having already at our request, been reduced to its r- low rate by the Customs Union. Kor these vast advantages, the conditional arrangemen proposes that the I 'nlted States should give to the I ustom ? Ciiion proper equivalents, by reducing the heavy duties c > the present tariff upon silks, looking-glass plates, wino ' toys, linens, and such other articles as are not of th growth or manufacture of the United States. !. Mr. Wheaton's late despatch will fully explain th I whole course of hi* proceedings in reference to this intei esting subject, nnd I doubt net will be satisfactory to Cor gress, should that body choose to call for them. In th mean time, I lay before you the correspondence betweei Mr. Wheaton and the Karon Rulow, which gives th ; outline of the proposed arrangement. i Tne reduction on tobacco projiosed on the part of th (Jerman Customs Union brings to our view, in a stroni ' light, the unfortunate state of the trade with K.nglanil ' Kranee, and Austria, in that great staple of our country.[ In Knginnd we have to complain of an enormous duty e three shillings a pound, or alwut 800 per cent on its, vain at the place of exportation ; utthc same time it is permit ted to sell the article freely in that country, "f In France, however, although every minister of th United States, from the year 17Ht> to the present time, ha earnestly pressed the subject upon that (Jo* eminent, w change has been effected. The government of Franc 1 still continues the mono|>oly or regie, which stops up al j the avenues to tliat trailo, whilst tho United fit at s ndmi i all the products of French industry. In Austria the same plan of monopoly or regie destroy , the prospect of any productive trade of tobacco ; and on minister at thrt Court hold* out no inducement tr> hope fo -my change lor the better I It may In- proper to remark that the proposed treaty wil not affect tho provisions of existing ireaties with'othc II foreign powers. The stipulation is found in many o

them, that, if the United Slates should trrnnt more favorn . hie terms to nny other nation, those teims *hould be con p nun red in r.Mi-ii'uii;; 10 urn jiuuuiin (uue s in incur inn r tin*. lint thin stipulation is always understood as condition al, that in, that the advantages of the now treaty shall bi given only on the ?amo term* on which they are pvei to the party of that treaty. If they lio given without equivalent, thejr must also hi given to those nations without ei|ui\al?nt ; if thev bi ' ni\ i'n in consideration of equivalents, no nation can e.lain * them, uniler the <renor*l stipulation above mentioned - without offering n like equivalent. c The dutie* imposed on the importation of aparticula , commodity may therefore with propriety be reduced, a to articles tlm produce or manufacture of one country e which may, in consideration of such reduction, reduce it ' duties on our staple productions, without j^ivin^ to ant , other nation, w itli which we may have such a treaty stipti i lation, a right to require the same reductions as to its pro f liuctionior manufactures, unlets such nation* will comi t under the same conditions. The treuty of ltt-lj witl Franco is a precedent in point. I Denmark lias, by sufferance, continued to impose, up t< this day, a most singular tax upon all goods which pass ii or out id the Hound, on board of every ship that enters 01 " leaves the Baltic by this highway of nature. Denmark cannot demand this toll upon any principle o f natural or public law, nor upon any other ground that , ancient usage, which linds no justification in the existing r state of things. She renders no service for this exaction ' and has not even the claim of power to enforce it. A great nnd general dissntislaction is felt, by all nation1 . interested in the Baltic trade, at this unnecessary and hit i mlliating exaction. I respectfully suggest that the tlrai ^las arrived when Ihe I 11 itcd States may properly tak< )RK E )RNING, DECEMBER 1(5, 1 some decisive step to relieve our llaltic traile from this up- i pression. i Kor more full information upon this subject, I refer to ( the report of Mr. Webster, hereinbefore ullu?le<l to. No ^ essential change im* token jilacc since tin* date tri mat rer port, and our vessels continue to lower their topsails at I the castle oft ronberg, anil to pay tribute to Denmark. j '* The condition of our navigation and shipping interest II demand*, at this time, particular attention troin the (Jo- I v eminent. The great and constantly increasing amount 0 of foreign shipping in our port* shows the necessity of < e prompt legislation tor the protection and enlargement of our commercial marine. There i? reason to apprehend ' that, if the hcst-a.lvised measure* he not promptly taken, " American commerce will soon bo engrossed hv the ships ' and seamen ol Kurope. There ran ho no iloulit that the cause of this great e> il is to be found in the stipulations s of our commercial treaties, which place the shipping of foreign countries on an equality with that of the United 1 States, in the indirect as well as the direct trade. " This necessarily operates to the advantage of those ua' tiun* who can build and navigate their vessels at the least ' cost. 1 It is well known that most of the nations with which :i ? e have concluded such treaties, and especially those ol " the North of Kurope, have a decided advantage over us I in t>oth these particulars. Nearly all the materials of I shipbuilding are much more coslty in the. I'nite^l States than in Kurope. The wages w e pay to our seamen are " nearly double, and the general scale of living on shipboard " is much better, and consequently much more expensive. " The consequence ol all this is, that our ship ow ners, be" fore they can tind employment for their vessels, are obliged to wait in their own ports until .Swedish, Danish, II and llanseatic shipping has taken otf as much freight ai it can carry ; and jet we persuade oumdves that our treaties with all th?'-e powers have placed our co.v.merce f u))on a footing of perfect reciprocity I The treaties at present existing with Denmark, Sweden, the llanseatic Republic, 1'russia, Austria, and Itussia, s have already extended beyond their original limitation, and are subject to he discontinued at one year'* notice. The remaining treaties in which the reciprocity principle is adopted on the broadest scale, may be mode the subject ol consideration as the term of their duration at><) proaches. The remedy is consequently iu our own hands, and we have only to retruce our steps, and make known the determination of this Government to regulate its foreign trade, in future, upon such principles ol reciprocity as shall not extend beyond the direct iin)xirtat ion trade ill the produce and manufacture* of the contracting parties By the accompanying table, showing a comparative account of the domestic and tbieiiru tonnage employed " in the foreign trade of tho United States for the last fifteen [J years, it will be seen that the average proportion of American shipping to foreign shipping was as follows :? t Table or Shiitino, i Proportion per rent, u Periods. ilwm'ti. f'or'n. , 1828 to 183!) 817 18.3 i 1832 to 1837 66.2 33 8 .. 1838 to 1810 09.1 30.9 The first period comprises the time when the treaties nl lowing indirect trade, contracted with the Hanse Towns, ' Sweden, and other powers, in I8'J7 and succeeding years, s lirst began to operate ; and, although during the latter ' years the proportion of foreign vessels rapidly increased, the average of the whole was but eighteen per cent. The second period commenced at about the time when a new impulse was added to the already increasing fou reign navigation by the " colonial arrangement" with fireat Britain in IS31 and 1932. During these live years, the proportion of foreign tonnage nearly doubled, while i! the amount thereof increased from two to six millions. Ii During the hist five years, a period(marked by extraor' dinary commercial fluctuations, the acquired proportion i of foreign tonnage has been preserved with remarkable uniformity. This latter fact is an evidence that, however s the commercial interests of the United States may have c been depressed by these revolutions and fluctuations, the i- navigation interests of foreign powers haw not been seri ously aftfected in their intercourse with us. d The able re|mrt of the Committue of Commerce of the House of Representatives (No. 834, May, 1942) embraces all the facts and statistics relating to our navigation and i- shipping interests ; and 1 refer to it with pleasure for full i- information.

' The etiquette observed in the order of business ~ in Congress srema to have more regard to (no digl' nity of legislative bodies and tlie leisure of memt hers than to Hie poeketsof Uncle Sam.

This mode of acknowledging respect to ' i. the memory of a deceased member of Congress is, 1 no doubt, according to very laudable use and wont, s but when it is seen that two days in succession have already been lost and thai two or three more (another to-morrow, I believe) melancholy duties of the ' same nature must be performed, with the loss <>| , e two or three days more, an utilitarian,age may en-- j quire whether this very proper mark of respect might not be deemed equally sincere, and quite as | C strongly displayed if it were paid lo all the deceased s gentlemen on the same day. The House of Representatives opened this morn" :, ing with a very fervent prayer by the Rev. [Mr. Tusiin, Chaplain to the Senate. Mr. Adams said that he understood he had been appointed Chairman of the Committee on Manufactures, and that he was confident he would not be tble to undergo the very arduous labours of that office. lb- hecued,therefore, that the Speaker would [. appoint another member in his steud. lie was ex11 eused without even a single "No." I This declinature of Mr. Adams wan rather nnexs pec ted, an he is usually rather fond of being in the midst of things. His excuse being so liannoniously received will be accounted for, when I mention that there was a good deal of growling .. atioug the democrats at the Speaker yesterday, for 1 > having appointed a whig to that important chair j I Mr. Black, of Georgia, and Mr. Chapman, of J 1 Alabama, approached the Speaker, and took tIn ir - oaths and thcirsents.

Why attempt to fix ii brand and a stigma 1 upon us? I am willing to go Into any enquiry , into which every body else goes, but I object I1 , in the most decided manner to singling out the gentlemen from these States for any such pur- v pose.

I'ntire forfeiture of our rights! 1 move, sir, that the resolution he no amended as to include I'vcry genilenian claiming a seat on thta lloor, ><nil thai it lie referred to a committee of the whole House. This gentleman spoke in such h auvagc sty 1?* that we thought lie Wan about to eat the House uu, Speaker and all. At times lie van so stunningly loud that literally we could not hear what lie said. lJuriiig his sjii eeh, members were t-iuging to each Jtli'-r iu undertones, "Louder?louder yet," i\ e. Mr. J AMiiisux, ot Mo., said he was opposed to the evolution, lie thought it was a higrtiy improper itep to single out the gentlemen from rttatcs in thin ivay.

Mr. Wr.LLr.R, of Ohio, diiTeird from the gentleman win) Kill just resumed his sent. A reason able doulit existed in lie minds, of mime members of the Mouse at least, as to the itle of the gentlemen from the States in question to their ieats. These seats were all about which there was any lispute, and it was expedient to decide the matter as speclily as possible, lie thought the resolution of the gentlenan from Kentucky a very proper one. Mr. TtioMrnoN, of Mississippi ?I am ouc of the members vhose rights are questioned, but it makes no difference to ne to what committee the mutter goes. I would scorn to lolil a seat here except my right to do so was beyond dismte. My constituents did not send inc here without a ight. I go for the resolution of the gentleman from Ken ;ucky. Mr. Bt:tscn,of Alabama I think there w ill be a confu>ion in the House so long as this question remains nnscl:led, and therefore I think that the sooner it is settled the letter. Until the mfitter is investigated and settled, 1 think lie gentlemen oueht not to participate in the legislation of his I louse. I will support the resolution of the gentlenan from Kentucky. Mh. Black, of <?a.?I would he willing that the case ihould go to the Committee on Klcctions or miy other oinmittee, provided we can get it brought to a speedy icttlernent. I believe that this question will meet the inme fate eventually as awaited the question of the same lature which agitated the 26th Congress. You, sir, was a member of the26 th Congress ns well as myself, and loubtless you n-eollect well the delays and perplexities of ;liequestion that engrossed our attention then. On the very first day of the session the question was mooted, and month after month was spent without any effect. 1 do not lielieve there w us ever any decision upon that subject.? Vou will also recollect, Sir, of the excitement bete last rear in respect to the admission of the Hon. gcntlcoiun rom Florida, and we never could get a decision lit that :asc either. Report after report came from the committee tint they could never agree. So far as my right is conjoined, I would scoi'n to hold a scat to which 1 was not infilled, lint I wish to see the case settled according to ihe law of the land?not upon any principle of de il right of the question. Sir, this question in the State which I have the honor, in part, to represent, cannot e called a political question, ltotn parties ran ipon the general ticket system. We have been sent here a iroken delegation from Georgia as to politics part w his ?nd part democrat. 1 consider, sir, that I have a personal right to demand a speedy settlement of the question. 1 lo not know the names of the gentlemen w ho compose !he Committee on Elections, i have no wish to know them. I do not know the. political complexion of that committee, and 1 d? not wish to make enquiry about that. I am willing to go before them, and I have no doubt the gentlemen will give our case a fair investigation, but it will be physically impossible lor the Committee on Elections to give the ca?e that speedy attention which it requires. They will have too much business before them, and I am alraid we would linil it somewhere about July or August next, before we could 'get a report from them. I say, sir, let this ease go to a select committee with instructions to investigate all its bearing", and report as speedily as possible. .Mr. Sun n, of Indiann?I will vote for the amendment of the gentleman from Virginia, with the view of ottering another motion. I wish the House would dispose of this | question as speedy as possible. I will move that the proposition of the gentleman from Kentucky be referred to the Judiciary Committee. The gentlemen on the Judiciary Committee have been selected for theii learning, anil if it is left to them, when it goes before the country it will go with a learned report accompanying it. Mr. Jamiksow, of Missouri.?! move..Mi. ( hairman, that this question be referred to a committee of the whole Mouse. Sir, what object is there in sending a question like this to either a select or standing committee. It is very good to do so when facts require to bo investigated, hut in this case there is not a solitary fact to make inquiry about. is the House not its able to decide as any com mittee 1 What use is there in referring cases of con tested elections to standing committees ! Because there is a tedious investigation of Tacts which the House could not so well enter upon. But is it necessary in a question of this kind f There are here no facts?no memorials. Time will come when gentlemen will lind that I am right in asking a decision by the House, and they will rue their proposition. Here a message was received from the Senate intimating thai linil bodv hnd iidioiimed for the daV. as a tribute of respect to the memory of Senator McKoberti of Illinois. When the Message was read, Mr. H'tiTwum h, of Illinois, rose ui> and after cu> ing that it was a painful consideration thnt the first speech which he had occasion to make, on this lloor, was on so melancholy a subject, gave a succinct and eulogistic history of the life of the deceased. Mr. Wentworth is the gentleman who was noticed in the "Herald" the other day, as the member who stood some where about eight or tun feet ill his stockings, lie is the editor of the Chicago Democrat, a scholar, a gentleman. ami barring a few little eccentricities ami his tremendous length, a "marvellous proper man." Hn said, in the course of iiis speech,that he was the youngest member if the House.
