V TH Vol. X., No. 15tf?WUola No. 3720. THE NEW SYSTEM OF CURRE NOT proposed bv 8 I R ROBERT PEEL in tin: British House of Commons. MAY O, 1*41. [Conlinurd ] This was Lord Liverpool's opinion at that time. Is Dot this the fact at tne present moment 1 It is attempted by the same process to deter you from regulating the paper currency, by which, ol course, I mean promissory notem "No," says Lord Liverpool, " paper currency is only bills payable, or convertible into cash, at the will and pleusure of the holder." This statement assumes thut paper currency differs in that essential character which 1 belonged to other paper: and that, so differing, we were entitled to deal with it in a way different"from other descriptions of paper, for lie purpose of regulating that which we are best able to regulate ourselves; if, that is, we adhere to the measure of value, we need not be afraid of any mass of bills i of exchange. The van; interests of commerce 1 ought always to be the motive which should lead : us to guard against depreciation or diminution of: the needful circulation. It has been contended for by eminent writers that the only security and precaution which you ought to take against an excessive issue of paperecurrency is ita immediate convertibility. This doctrme is sanctioned by names and authorities no less eminent than those of a ilicnrdo and an Adam Smith. Those authorities assume that there ought to be no limitation?theysay if you have the opportunity ot an immediate convertibility then you need be under no apprehension on the subject with respect to the amount ol the issue. 1 venture, with great respect, to contest this position, and I ask this hauae to hesitate in adopting doctrines even on such high authority, if tnese doctrines shall on investigation turn out not to -be well founded. We are in a constant state of progress? we are daily making new discoveries; do not there fore let uj be deterred from abandoning a principle, though sanctioned by a Smith and a Kicardo, it subsequent lights thrown on the subject convince us we are in error, (hear, hsar.) I must conteiid that an unlimited issue, with a ready power of convertibility, does not give us the required security. I readily admit there is a great advantage in resorting to a supply of most articles by the means of free competition, because by the aid of competition you obtain an article you require at the cheapest rate; but then 1 say, and what I am contending tor is, that a paper currency is governed by a principle totally different from that which governs almost ev* ery other commercial matter. I do not want, sir, the greatest quantity of currency upon the cheapest terms. "What i want is, a competent supply of a paper currency which shall exactly correspond to the quantity ct gold, which with such supply of a paper currency would be required for the business of the, country, and which shall be given and secured on the credit of parties of whose solvency there can be scarcely a doubt I want this part of the currency to he tfie best as to quality, but as to its quantity it must from circumstances be unfixed; but if itaamouut go beyond that lor which it is intended to he substituted, so far it will be in excess. The contrary opinion is held by those who are in favor of the doctrine of unlimited competition with respect to a paper circulation by hanks of issue } and they maintain that where there is an unlimited competition allowed, the issue of paper by bankers authorized toissne will ultimately conform to that amount of geld for which it is the substitute in the circulation. We believe that the issue of baak paper to supply a wholesome circulation of this description should not be greater than the gold for which it is the substitute, and whenever it does so exceed, then the silent monitor, gold, by be coming scarce, enforces the lesson ?t immediate constriction of the issue. This, however, has bten denied by the advocates of unrestricted paper currency; and upon this part of the subject I must entreat the attention ol the house to the evidence given by Mr. Stuckey, a banker in the west of England, upon his examination before a committee of the houo?, and the chairman of a committee, appointed to inquire into the condition of private banks in thia country, " Q. Supposing, for instance, it should be ultimately thought that it is desirable that the country circulation should have a general conformity to the state of the foreign exchanges; do yae conceive that this conltJ, in any way, be effected by the country bankers 1?A. I do not at present eee how it could be accomplished ; and I may take the liberty of going further in answer to that question, and saying that it nppears to me that the country issues, as conducted in the west of England, have very little or nothing to do with foreign exchanges." Such is the opinion of a most respectable gentleman and a banker in the west ol England, from which it would appear that prices in the west of England had little todo with the state of the foreign exchanges. It is admitted that these issues?that is, the issue of pnper by the banker, depends upon prices; so that whun prices rise the issue of paper enlarges as a consequence. This is a most important admwfon, and it shows that unless you nave a controlling check upon those issues, and unless you attsnd to the warning that is certain to follow?namely, the disappearance of the gold Irom circulation, you will go on to increase the evil by increasing the issue ol paper. Mr. Stuckey does not enter into that question in his evidence. He says he looked at the foreign exchanges (a laugh) to see how they affected the currency, but his evidence is only that in the west of Engl tnd lie does not think the foreign exchanges affected prices.? Mr. Hubhnuse, the brotlier, 1 believe, of the honorable member for Nottingham, was examined before the committee, and being asked? " Q In your opinion, with a rise in prices, will there bean increase in the paper issues by country banks }?A. There will oe an increase in the local circulation of the country when prices rise.? Gold is a commodity of which there may be a glut as well as a scarcity, and I could never see nny reason to be frightened at an export or drain of ijold " Q Ought not there to be a contraction of the circulation under such circumstances!?.<4. Whether there ought or ought not I cannot tell, but I am sure that, in lact, there could not he. I am perfectly satisfied that it is quite impossible for these local currencies to be influenced by the price t f gold or the foreign exchanges. " ^ Does it not often happen that your circulation is increased in the beginning of a drain for gold!? A. Yes; we do not pretend that our circulation is at all governed by what I have stated already." Hence the disposition to increase the issue of paper goes on. A demand tcr gold is the consequence; the paper becomes discredited ; the banks are run upon until they stop payment; credit is shaken, large fortunes lost; and ruin to numbers is the lamentable result; and finally, the bankers who stand are compelled to retrace their stejis by immediate and permanent abstraction of notes Irom circulation (hear.) This then is the proof of what I, at an earlier period of my address to you, stated? namely, that immediate convertibility where there is unlimited competition in issue will not ulways protect or prove a safeguard to you from sudden monetary derangements and violent convulsions Let esi( ok, for example, to what hns happened in the United .' tntew of America, nnd let us become wise from their experience. In that country there were no private banks; the banks of issue were joint-stock banks with many subscribers, and in Home instances there was a joint liubility of all and each of the partners established. Yet, with these guards and this precaution, a sudden crash came upon credit, and the consequence was the ruin ol thousands (hear ) If, as in ihm ease, there waves t.iI>11mi immediate convertibility oi ttieii issues iato gold, with an unlimited competition, and if a system so guarded were a ante system, how did it happen this crash of credit, and the ruin of the American banks, took place! (loud cheeia ) Together with 'he?e batiks they had a national bunk, the Bank of the United States; the effect of which on the other banks was, that it kept the banking system within some bounds. The other banks were compelled to conform to the principle of the ilank of llie United States But it pleased the persons in power to do away with that national bank, nnd the result was such as I have stated. From all that 1 have stated I think 1 have proved to the house that which 1 stated it was my intention to do? namely that unlimited competition with immediate convertibility of hank paper into gold can he no sullicient security against over-issue. I have, 1 think, sir, snfliciently stated whnt is the broad principle which should regulate the three great elements of our monetary system. I certainly have taken a wide range in the examination and a liberal view of thai principle. If having so stated it at length it shad he found that 1 do not propose now to carry it out, I shall be told no douhi by some honorable members, " Your piincinle is nil very well in the abstract, but yon shrink from the utternpt to carry oat your principle " (hear.) Sir, I think it is of advantage that occasions of this sort ollkr themselves, as in this instance, for a review of principles of hucIi importance, and so liable to I be rauunaenUKHi, < v-n inacpi-nacntiy w practical measures to he founded thereupon. And 1 will confess that I would r.ithrr.alter having gone so into un examination el principles, that it should be said * j i :e ni N tome, "True it is, your prinriplea are good in themselves, but you (nil short of tliem in their ap plication, and shrink from the responsibility of the legislative adoption," than that I should lay myself open to the charge of having misrepresented or unfairly stated principles so important, und essential to a proper examination of any great question before you, either on this or any other occasion (loud cheers.) Iluving said thus much upon usubject personal to mysclt, I will now say how tar our present monetary state, and the circumstances in which we finiL'ourselvea placed, should induce or encourage us to attempt to modify that system. [ To be eon(i?ut<J.J Kothodlat Episcopal Conference* Thursday Morning. After the usual formalities were observed, and some reports disposed of, Mr. Early intimated that agreeably with notice given by Mr. Pierce a few days ago. a protest had Been prepared on the pnrtof the southern delegates, and moved that Dr. Bascom be permitted to read it. Agreed to. Dr. Bascom then read the protest. It was a long, elaborate and argumentative document, setting forth the grounds upon which (the southern delegates, to the amount of 52, and representing thirteen entire and portions of other annual conferences,and 500,000 members of the ME. Church,)they dissented from the resolution of the General Conference in the case of Bishop Andrews. The protest regarded the resc.lution as essentially mandatory?as establishing a precedent highly dangerous to the union and stability of the church, whose charter, as consisting in the discipline and laws of the body, should be sacred, and above the caprice ot a majority of the. conference. It repudiated the right of the majority, as in the case of Bishop Andrews, to control and virtually suspend one of the superintendents by a process of an extra-judifcial kind, and in the absence of valid allegations of such offence as should alone give constitutional coloring to the bold attitude assumed by the majority. It protested against the doctrine that a connection with slavery was incompatible with Methodism, and that iu the.absetice of legal evidence, >1,0.. 11 it ...... nn. wise and unsafe to make it a disqualification in a superintendent, on grounds of expediency; and fiiiully, it was highly mischievous, becuuse in leaving the relation ol slavery to the church unsettled, and ^ambiguouH, it afforded a vulnerable point thbougkrwhich She editiro of Methodism, hitherto Arm prosperous,dftijpit be unbailed at a future day. Tlie protect wuroutered on the journal, and a committee, eonilsting of Messrs. Durbin.Ulin and Hamliue, wero appointed on the patt of the majority, to draw up a statement of Hie facts in the case of bishop Andrews. afternoon session. half pait three o'clock. The Conference proceeded to deliberate on a motion to make the order of the day to-morrow, the election ot new bishops. Dr. Smith objeeted to the motion. He did not in the present i>ositiou of affairs know how many bishops were wanted, nor couldphey, until the case of Bishop Andrews was disposed of. 1 he anxiety of those who wished to press that btisinoss arose from a desire to get home. He felt it hard that any precipitancy on the pari of certain members ?he would nut say they did it by design?should incon venience those ol the South, who had no interest different lrom that of the entire church, to serve. Mr. Cartwrioht thought it important to bear in mind that they had been a mouth in session without settling that part of the business,and would be as long again if they continued to put it ott?. The objections of Dr. Smith appeared strange to him, and must have arisen from some strange concatenation of circumstances,of which he knew nothing ; he would not as the brother did, talk about any design in the caseDr Smith.?1 particularly made exception of all design in their actions. * Mr. Cartwbioht.?-Weli so will I ; I will speak of design Just as it has been spoken of on the other side. tnauguier.; no was anxious ior an election, noi curing no much about the number to long at they wore nominated. Home members had gone homo, othert were geing, and it wat natural to suppose they must all go shortly, ii the end of the world did not take place. Before they went they mutt provide a missionary secretary, and more biahonti he did nut tay for coat, weit, north, or aouth, but for the interest of the whole Church. Mr. Co'.lins arose and made a few remarks. Mr. Kablv took a different view ol the question from that of brother Cartwright. The Southern members did not roako it the concern of a party .tliay held no caucuttet, nor talked ol this side or that tide of the house. Mr. Cartwhight.?1 mutt explain, sir. Mr. Early.?Have 1 misrepresented you .' Mr. Cabtythight.?Yet, and I am afraid willingly. (Cries ol order.) Partine.it.?Brother Early hat the floor. Mr. Cahtwsighi.?I will correct him. The brother had talked about caucuttet,whilst it; was well known that th^Bouth had caucuttet lion time immemorial, and all that fust wat raised aliout the North having only one little bit of a thing. (Laughter) Mr. Early continued to contend that the election at present of Bishops wat unseasonable, at they did not know how many effective Superintendents they had, and atked the sense of Conference. There was no occasion tor flat contradictions on the part of gentlemen or ministers. If ever he was mistaken he would confess it, but it was the fault of the head rather than the heart. (A member he.rejsaid something which was not distinctly heard.) He, (Mr. E.,) could not reply to the personal outrage upon his luitlings, which they had heard ; but he would waive all right to moke a speech, if they would tHkc that opportunity to tell bim how tltey would place Bishop Andrews. Bishop Sori.r. here intimated that he was desirous to submit to Conference u document asking instructions as to (lie disposal of Bishop Andrews when they were pre pared to ncvive it. On motion made, the present business was left on the table to hear the document. Bi?hop Soui.k then read as followsItev'd and dear Brethtun?As the case ot Bishop Andrews unavoidably involves the future action ol the superintendents, which, in their judgment, in the present peaition of Bishop Andrews they hare no discretion to decide, they respectfully request from the General Conterence, for their instruction, an answer to the three following questions:? Kirst?Shall Bishop Andrews' name remain as it now stands on the minutes and in the discipline, or be stricken otf their otlicial records? Second?How shall the Bishop obtain his support? As provided lor in the form ol discipline, or in some other way I Third?What work, il any, shall the Bishop perform, and how shall he be appointed to the work! It was moved to relur the communication to a committee, but opposed by Mr. Loiosthkkt, who could not conceive how acorn inline CUU1U act >1|IUU II.

A decision of a committee would aot advance them one step, and he propoacd that the sense ot the house he taken on the propositions at ouce Mr. Collin* enquired if there existed any cemmunication from Bishop Andrews ax to the course he intends to pursue. That might help them materially. it 11 Smith hoped that Mr. Collina did not refer to any private or confidential correspondence the Bishop might have had with hia friends. Mr. Colli** meant nothing of the kind. As far as the questions were concerned hie was prepared to vote at ouce; hat a great difference of opinion existed as to whether the resolution in Bishop Andrews'case was mandatory or not, and it would he desirable by uil means, to understand it clearly. Dr. Slickh regarded the Intentions of Bishop Andrews in the case as of no consequence. It waa their duty to odviko those to whom the functions of the Kpiscopacy were entrusted, and as three distinct questions were asked, ho would move that they should he at onca answered. Dr. Dram* could have wished that that part of the business should have stood over till alter the report of the committee now considering another brunch of the same matter. Still, he had loug since made up hia mind on the topics, and was quite prepared to give an answer, which would he in accordance with what he understood to be toe action ol tlia majority in the case, fin, nor any one else never {believed that Bishop Andrews was suspended, and his unswer to the flrst question would he in the affirmative. As to the second, he was for allowing him his support ns heretofore. In the third place he begged to >ay, (hat the determination of the case reated with bishop Andrews, and not with the Conference. One word more lie would be sorry to say that word, il it would call forth any remark trom what wan called the other side. He always hoped there would not be ultimately another side What he understood about the business was, that Biihon \ nli r w a took the advice of his southern brethren, which was very proper Their brethren gave him their opinion hi writing. Mating what they thought was his duty iu the care The majority that votid for the resolution wanted! to give Bishop Andrews their solemn sense ol what tkry considered to he his duty in the premises?they w ished to put both sides lielorc Bishop Andrews, leaving hun to say whether he would continue to exercise the liinctions of Bishop alter receiving the sense of Conference on both skier. In conclusion, he was of opinion, that if llishop Andrew a'solemn sense ol duty would not per. run nun 10 lort'ko me exercise ui uw luiit.wviia, iik; should nor conldnot refuse him work, and ho was the only person who could anawar the last question. Mr McFkirix looked upon that view of the caao asvery unfortunate lor Bishop Andrews. There was a rule of discipline which said, tnat if a member or superintendent dared to travel without leave, ho should he suspended. If Bishop Andrews did so, they might turn round and suspend him ; il he did not?if he travelled as formerly, in tlm face of these proceedings, they might do the same. It wns very strange, and put him in mind of the old couplet: You shall and you shan't, You will and vou wont, You'll tar damn'd if you do, You'll lie damn'd if you dont. (laughter.) The following resolutions were put and adopted? Resolved, first, That it is the sense oi this Conference that Bishop Andrews' name atand in the mlnutaa as formerly. Second, That the rule in relation to tha support of a bishop and his family, applies to Bishop Andrews.

The Secretary read the rn|>ort; it contained a recommendation to riscind the resolution of Conference in lo4U, which made colored testimony in Church trials of white people inadmissible. Mr Collins moved that the three resolutions appended in 1340 to the above, be ulso included in the present action of Conference. Bishop Son lr observed that many persons there were unacquainted with the resolutions; therefore it would be well to read them. Mr. Peck thought the resolutions referred to, were of minor importance; that on threefold testimony being the chief subject. Mr. McFerrhy made a few observations, bul was interrupted by A Member, who moved the previous question. Mr. McFerkin?1 wish that brother would not inter nipt me.

After some further discussion, the resolution was rescinded, and the other taree appended to the report. On motion of Mr. Sanuforu, it was resolved to furnish BishopAndrew s with a copy of the proceedings iu his case. Mr. Martindai.k moved that the rejiort of the committee to whom wus referred the consideration of a four years' course of study to candidates for the ministry, be token up The Secretary read the report.

The report then prescribed, in a resolution, provisions for the jurisdiction of the Southern Church over all such Conferences, as were now termed Southern Conferences, lor a just distribution of Churches, funds, books, debts and other property of the M. K. Church, in parts proportioned to the number of preachers in the churches respectively; for the free and^uofettered right of every member to attach himself to either as he thought proper, with several other details which our limits will not permit us to specify.

J., took place at Newark yestc#*! day afternoon The place ol meeting was oh the* 'Military Common," one of the handsomest public !

purks in the Union. The most admirable arrangements had been made by the committee, andjihe I day being very line, several thousands of the sturdy ! democracy of the surrounding country collected j on the occasion. The chair was taken ainid loud I cheers at 8 o'clock, by General Darcy, of New-' ark, who introduced to the meeting Mr Brsn sr, delegate to the City Baltimore Conven- ' tion,from Jersey City. Mr B. orticially announced the recult of the deliberations of the Convention, and made .1 j number of excellent remarks on the character and claims oi the candidate. Mr. Batista, of New York, followed in a brief but eloquent address Hon. John M'Keon was then introduced to the meeting, and was received with enthusiastic cheering. He said : ? 1 thank you, fellow democrats of New Jersey lor this evidence ol y our feeling t owards me. 1 have come among you, as one of the great democratic republican family ol the Union. Nor am 1 not a very distant relation, lor 1 live only on the other side of the water. (Laughter and cheers ) And we certainly are a pretty numerous family in this country. (Henewed cheets ) You have here assembled in such numbers as evince in a most significant manner, the deep feeling with which you regard ths approaching election. I confess that I am surprised to see so many assembled here on this occasion, at a period of the dav when most persons are occupied in attention to their daily business. This convinces me that there is a spirit of inquiry abroad and that many are willing to lose a little time for the purpose of acquiring a) knowledge uf the subjects which divide the democratic party of theUnion Iroin their opponents?tne wnigs. in me appruui mug tin;tion, you, no a part ofj the democracy, of the country, will tie culled on to express your opinion upon principles and not npen men. I admit here, us I have admitted ever) where, that the opponent* of the democratic party have selected men of distinguished anility s their champions?but I have at the same time expressed the fear, that in consequence of that very distinguished ability they may bo likely to mislead a portion of the public mind. The question is now to be settled whether you are willing to have the government administered on the principles ot the constitution as explained by tho elder Adams and by Hamilton, or on the principles ot the constitution as understood and explained by Jefferson and by Jackson. (Cheers, and a voice, "by Jefferson and Jackson.") A friend in the ciowil suggests by Jefferson ui.d Jackson. The principles of the loimer are well displayed in the issues made by tlie whig party. Accotding to them, the government shall be uif ministered so that ihe wealth ol the country shall govern the labor of thecouutry by indirect nieuus ? by oppressive debts-by burdensum taxation?by monns ol a hank?by the distribution of the proceeds of the public lutein 1 his is the made ol administering the government lor w hich the whig* contend. And the question now submitted to the people is, whether they will sanction and establish such an administration, or whether they will liuve the affairs ol government administered in the spirit ol those priucijile* lor which Jefferson and Jackson contended?win tiler the administration shall be conducted with that simplicity, justioa, economy and efficiency by which it was intended to be characterized by our loretaMicrs, who iought the battles of the revolution and established the constitution, (cheers) My friends, you lecollcct what | rofessious our opponents nude when they were out of power. I will not recall the common slang of that day, but will simply remind you that they promised a total reform of all the abuses which had crept iuto the administration of the government under the democratic party. Cut all these promises were matte merely tor the purpose of disguising deep intended wrong to the American naoiile. and very well exemiilitied the story talil in an hastern fiction of the tiger who apnroachtd ~a row of penitanta with some blessed palm in nil clawa, with which ho concealed hi* deadly purpose of devouring his victim*. (Cheer*.) I willibew you by reference to theirfacts how wofullrthey have failed in the fulfilment of their promise*. When the whig party waa out ot rower, you will remember how they wrung the change* on the alleged enormous debt with which the country had been plunged, aa they aaid by the democratic party. '1'hey represented that debt aa amounting to lorty million* ol dollar*. I happoned to be elected a member of the extra aetaion of Congress in 1841, and one of the first question* I put to the whig* in the House whs, what are the item* of this alleged debt 7 At no time was the return of those item* forthcoming. Now let me give you theHrtual fact* n* they appear in the document* of the United Statas. We called for information from the Secretary of the Treasury a* tetha amount of debt due whan the democratic party went out of otHca on the 3d of March, 1H41. And what was the amount returned? Kight million* ! (Cheer* ) And that 1 could reduce to three million* by the reduction of several items, but 1 let it stand. Well what was the amount returned a* due when the last report of the Secretary of the Treasury waamado? Upward* of twenty-six mil-lion* ! (Cheers) The comparison of the two itatemeut* will present the following result: National Debt, Dec. 1,1943 *28,74-1.949 99 National Debt, March 3, 1841 8.379.049 81 Increase in two year* and three quarter*. ,.$18,363,800 IS There's a buiine** for you ! (Laughter and cheers') 1 lit! will*. in ^..o.Acu tion of 1840, that we had created a forty million debt. That debt has never yet been discovered, but I submit to the consideration of this audience, that it will not require runny more year* at the rate thcv have progressed for our opponent! to create a 40,000,000 debt jn fact. (t'heera ) I can inform you that if the appropriation! which were recommended had been carried out, the debt, instead ol being twenty-si*, would have been at least thirty-five millions, by the time when tlicy will be obliged to give up the reins of government?the 4th of V.irch next. (Loud cheers.) My frienda, you will probably recollect ?if thorn are any of my whig friends present, and I hope there may be?(cheers)?they will certainly recollect the celebrated declaration of Sunutor Preston, that if the Whigs were put in, proscription itself would be proscribed They said no man should be turned out of ofnre on no count ofbis opinions ; and (ierierul Harrison himself said in a speech at Cleveland, Ohio, that "sooner than remove a public officer on account of his opinions, he would mitrer bis right arm to be severed from his body." That was the spirit of the declarations of'the whips ? What was their practice 1 Let t;s see how they used the scythe.?(Clivers.) On the 10th of March the woik ol destruction began by the removal ol the Postmaster of Albany,and on the same dayone of the receivers of Indiana was removed.

(Cheer*.) Now, as to principle*, how do we stand in relation to the wing party? Mr. t'olk is what they Call n free-trade man, end Mr. Clay is, they say, the advocate ef protection to American industry. Weil, let in try heth hv what they lay, for I believe m the maxim of Mr Jetl'erson that what others lay of a man rarely, if ever hurts him, but what he my* of him self somufimes may At nil events let lis give these gen.' tlemen the benefit of their own declaration of opinion, and my belief is that yon will And that on this point Mr I'olk and Mr < lay orenpy precisely the same ground. Mr < l?v, in his sent in the Senate on the IMh of Feh. IH4i, offered a leries of resolutions ; amongst them was one that the revenue to la* raised should he twenty-six millions of dollars?twenty-two millions for ordinary ex. penses, two million* for pnyinrnt of debts, and two tor contingencies. Anntherof the resolutions provided that in the adjustment of the tariff to raise this amount, Iho prlnripin of Iho Camprnnino Jicl thnnld ganrrally hr mlhorrd In. Mr. Polk haa in one ol his speeches late ly delivered, inld he was opjmsed to direct taxes -that he was opposed to prohibitory duties?ne did not wish to rut on importation*. In other words he was in favorof reducing tho duties fo Iho rain of Ihi rnmprnmito net. Mr Clay and Mr. Polk both unifeon the compromise act. 80 far as that great measure whi -h ga<-<> peace to the Union, they stand together. When the icelution* came to he aete.l on on the 30th March, 194.1, Mr. Hives proposed to amend these resolutions by resolving ti nt the distribution proceeds of public lands ought to be suspend, ed until the national debt should be paid- that the proceeds should he pledged to tho extinguishment of the debt and Mr. Hives wanted that in uny new adjuatmrnt of the tariff the principles and provision of the compromise net should bo adhered to. Mr. Hives' amendment was sua. tained by tho votes ol Mr. Archer, of Virginia, and Mr. Preston of South Carolina. All these gentlemen now support Mr. Clay for tho Presidency The next point on w hich we differ is the distribution of thn proceed* ol the public lands l.et me oiler a word or two in explanation of this, for there may he a few of you who do not exactly understand the detail* Wa have a largo quantity of real estate belonging to the United States, for which the squatter* pay a certain price to tho government.

For this pnr|>ose theater the pnrpose of enabling thn general government to meet Its engagements, the Democracy of the country have aatd that this money should be kept. But the Whigs think otherwise.

The lit-uvv ahowpr of rain which fell at this period ol the evening, had the effect of filling the room with quite a respectable crowd. The usual number of resolutions was then read, all expressing with a very little variation the subatunce of other resolutions passed at previous similar gatherings, -and w hich the Hon.

They expressed the usual determination of supporting the unanimous nomination of the lialtuuore Convention, and nt every mention of the names of Clay and Frelmghuyaen, there were bursts of enthusiastic applause.
