Dr. Em - ?ue L,?eeona by the Rev. Dr. . ?<j?u, ?I N. O. The minute* of yesterday were read mid adopted, alter some conversation aa to the exact state of the question on the signing of tn** trst'monuls ot the ftuhoD elect of Mississippi. A Messdge was received from the Hotter of lii-mops, that they had pasaed a Canon on the effect ol suopensionn, Ironi the Ministry on jurisdiction, which was referred to the Standinf Committee on CanonB. Fudge Bkrrien then moved that the Houae pro ceed to the unfinished buaiuena of yeaterday. Judge Cmamhsks wasforced by the course which these proceedings had taken, to attempt the dia cnarge oi a necesaary duty. All other business, even tht presentation of Reports were excluded by | wo engrossing questions ; he protested against be ing thud prohibited from the current business of the House; he therelore oiiered a motion that the sub jreu be postponed until some definite time, say 12 o'clock, to take up morning buMaew. Judge Hkekiek iru.-ted UieHoUae would refuse to PQstpoue the queaiion now, when ihe nature of the question involved in the motion is considered. He expected a relusal from the aatural love of justice, and the christian feeling of the House. The unfin ished business ol yeaterday, did not relL.e merely to a question ol general principle, but to one which directly involved the character, and the hitherto unblemished reputation af a Minister of this Onitrch. Every feeling of justice, as between man and man-every feeling of high and solemn duties as Christians, demanded that the Houae should no long-r hold in agony and tortare the individual connected aad directly involved in the unfinished btisiuesa of the Houae. ]f the object was indefi nitely to protract the consideration of theae allega tions, he appealed to the Christian justice of the House to decide the question at ouce and put that body at peace. He grayed them by their regard to every principle of justice, no longer to dehiy ac tion ; he believed the subject, if taken up, could be placed in such a light, aato allay all difficulties. Juilge Chambrks h*d 110 deposition lo obstruct it, alter he liail ottered a resolution which he deem ed all important. He therelore offered, by consem the following t Resolved, That the House of Biahepa concur ring, we close the present session on Thursday, the 17m tnBt. " This was laid on the table and then came up in order the unfinished business on the Eriscorscv ok Mississippi. Rev Dr M k*o, of Couu , rose and said,that having been appealed to y tnu-rday, by Dr. Hawks, as to his knowledge 01 ihe diameter oi Mr. Jftoyt and Mr. Scott, be would en sure the Home, from hi* personal knowledge of Mr Hjyt, as well aa of Mr. Scott, though he knew them lest intimately, they were perfectly honorable, and the Hou>e may bdievu what they aay through tha c?. :viction? ot their owu mmd. Aa to tha oharge, too, of intentional dishonesty agalust Dr. Hawks, he believed that theopei at tons at 1* lushing had been commenced and continued with us pure a purpose as any man ever engaged in busi ness. but that there was often wildness iu his piojacts, he vu? not prepared to ueny He wauld say a law words s> tu the geatlnnan's daiehca. The memorial presented against lum was signed by the Kev. Dr W A. Muhlen berg, a gentleman with whom every Presbyter of the chur a is conversant, whose character for truth, honest) ot parpose and piety, has never r een questioned. H< therefore regretted some remarks which had lalien from Pr. Hawks iu relation to him. and protested against the lutein irtte bespeak the prejudicla ot a certain portion ol the H?u?e, who, thought on particular subjects with Di H He Objected to hat of his statement whioh re. ferred lo the uoveltiea ul doctrine and the manner ol con dueling M> oi ship in the Chapel of St Paul's College? As to the use el lighted candles on the altar, he did not believe tk-y had e?er been nsad in tha day time. He could not but express his surprise st this atiem, t; there are persons piescnt who have seen equal novelties in the lhapeloldt Them** Hall. Dr. Mead then spoke ol the interior ol Dr. Hawk's Cispel?its chancel, a massiva ai taria the centre-on one site a music sUudor lectarn on the other a Oothic bronte candlestick with seveii brau?.he.s. He had saen this, and remarked to Dr. Hawks that it looked like Popeiy, and sh uld noi be introduced there, when the Dr replied that it had been presented by a laMy, and he did not care for any Popish sentiment at tributed tolt. The geutleman lrom Pennsylvania (Dr Tyngj had referred the other day to ambitious minister* win ;? ployed l?til? hoya 'o ~ ilu*M?is< of th? chnrci. Milw waa it with the Hector of St Thomas H?il. fhrre was s choir and splendid organ, and a gallery at the back; the little bays, the choristers, wnut into a vestry room, each took down his white surp'ice from a pog and tea or twelve or fifteen entered m? choir, and cbaunted the services of tht chur h Tins was the only instance of the use of thi surplice in this way he had ever known. As regarded the disclaimer of Dr Hawks, respecting his saying any thing about Dr. Muhlenberg's breaking up his establish meut aul going to Europe, when a gentleman is in the habit ol expiessiug himself rashly, he ought to have a better memory. He fDr. M) heard him say,after the in terview with Mr Oill, that St. Paul's was to be broken tip. and that Dr. Muhlenberg was going to England to withdraw in a gentlemanly manner; that it would still be continued as u humbly prepar.tory school, under Mr Van Bucklen, and that torty or fifty of the scholars wouid Join 8t. riioms*' Hall He was priding himself on the opportunity|ot filling his school on the desolation of St Paul's, iu such a manner that be was shocked snd horri fied. Dr. Meau referred to the testimonial articles they wereti? si^n t.? go np to tba House of Bishops; we are to solemnly a.'Krm that for three years past we believe ths Individual to nave lived piously, soberly, and honestly Now, he desired all he could to vindicate the reputation ot Dr Hawks lrom intentional dishonesty, hut he could not sign these testimonisls ia his favor He assured the that sooner than put his hand down to sign lhem, h t would lay it ou the blocs to have it cut off. and hold ins op the bloody stump, he would implore all who desi reef to preserve the church in its purity to pause, and not sign the d cumwits. He assured the House, that nothing but a sense ot high and solemn duty ta the church, caused him to m.'Ke the statement that he now did. He did not believe th it man fir lor the Episcopate, who had yesterdaj declared in the face and presence of Almighty God, that he never bore a vindictive feeling in his heart,but who on one occasion, little more than two year* since, he had heard say of another Presbyter, whom he supposed the ai'.hor of sjme anonymous articles against him,"I'll have my satiufsction of that man !" And when in r*ply it was sild, "pooh! pooh! joh cannot, unless \ou proceed against h in in a court of law, or an ecclesiastical tuto rial," mid, " it there is no other way, 1 will renounce my ministry, I will return to the law again, and I will t hrash him !'f This, toa, said openly in the presence of my brother Dr Cray ton and myrelf j and it was on thin gro in I. it no other,that ha could not sign his testimonials. Kev. Dr. Htwas expressed bis extreme aurprise ami . deep regiet at the course which Dr. Mead had seen fit to pursue Had a brother presented a pistol at hi* breast he could not h ive been more .tartled and shocked ! That he, without the slightest previous intimation, notwith standing recent expressions of regard-wilh his arm in friendly converse around his body since this convention met, should now present this shameful allegation to the House He should answer It, however, and in the same spirit as actuated him yesterday, in sorrow not In indignation. He would premise that he In tended this morning, and it was knowu to hia friends nrouud him. lo refer to a report of hia remarks, in which he was r. ported as having said, concerning Dr. Muhlen. berg, what he never intended This be did for fear the wrong statement would be injurious to Dr. Muhlenberg He had yesterday adverted to i?, not with a view of cow. pinning nt it, but merely to show that differences or opin ion existed between Dr. Munleukerg and himself. The first charge was that he was unfriendly to Dr. M., and he was accused of having an evil tongue and he merely stated these grievances wi ich had been spoken of by them for some year?. He had never attempted to insinu atn that Dr. Muhlenberg was not an honest man ; he coin cided with alliDr Mead has said of him ; but if lie had listened to idle words of the time character as had been concerning Dr. Muhlenberg to him, and if he had wiltten them ail down, he a'lould hsve had his hands full; nut he rowntd auch idle charge* down, aa hf thought wag his duty. As to the description af his own chape -it was comfortable, and those who had heard the story of its character, and at the sometime knew his dis position and feelings es to adherence to aU the forms ot he pumi Ive church must have laughed outright at the ??ii!?? ?? !. *p n1 9?tUic le?it cost $1000, he a' brazen caadle stick! The missive altar was a table constructed rJlm'Hn f.'hi i .T? entert*lned whether ths communion tabl?* should lie an altar Dr H thei gave n particular description of the chanel-it was 60 by ;i0 feet, with a chancel, a readlnc dek which Dr Mead has called a lecturn, and amove* ble pulpit, so made to economise room, for 100 parsons w- ro to ?> ? accommodated; at its extremity was a raised platform for the organ, and the space under this was for a ventry room. The candlestick was a common piece el pa.lor furniture with three tiers of Ught.obtsined because it wns cheap and gave t concentrated light for night ser vice?he had no idea of a "bronte candlestiek with Meven brsnchee,** or any ether mummery, as Dr. Mead hsd in imnteil ; When the tilings were cold at Zl Bu. n m ' for w,'n, in,n * Pri^te par lor. B it Dr Mead had erpresaed his astonishment at the EZ.'JV.P ?n.?.ir' rft*,e<1 ,u surplices! Music was ! Hall on account of its moral infiuencea ; he V v ^ L .lT b?y* who "'ten went to the city of N w Y ork at the request of the congregation, who ^.VrTr.^'ihV? .k? i*r|thi!' 111,18 or,'*ta^^', and expressed stirprise that they 1,a?l been ?o thoroughly tauaht it i 'hat these boys had their white after the m nru-r of the singing beys in the Church of Eaaland and especially ot nil the Cethedral Chnpches Thei wore these surnljces with black ribbon. fo?!h? sake o'f linlfjer'i.ty, an<i he took great pride and delight in them He had auo her motive for adopting them?as children tl.ey were lrer,u?tly at p.ay when the beU "nf to .?. mr," them from the play gmnnd to the Chepel their minds full and intent on their sports, and he wished if. impress upon t' em that thsy bad another and a holy duti to |M'ilorm in the house ol Ood ; so each put on their , ' ?nrpHce, and went up into the choir and sang the ant I ems of our Church, dressed exactly as is the custom of our mother Church. These are th.\?ts, andyM?! is intini .led that he Intended to adopt usages foreign to >he P.'oiestaut Epucopal I urcb Who Sat knew him would accuse him of a desira to alter the time-honored customs of the Church ? He who since'he first rec<'^* attempts at innovations,so etudl"^y oppoicd Lett-who was lor "lW oW thing* a* they were, even to the gui or < pair ot band* and the shape of a surplice. Dr. H. laid there war* present many who had seen tui Chapel ?Or. Milnor, Dr Anthon, and others, could say whether there wan any departure from the usages of the Chuich. He had il decent and orderly as the home of Ood should he) why then was he looked on with something like suspicion I Bicaute hit view* did not accord with others ! Why in some instances was he deuounoed ? Because he dilleted from others, whose tendencies led them to intioiMce ctrc'mouials of the Chuich of Koine and depart nom the es-ablished usages ot our mother churcli! It was not the 'gorgeous chapel," the "massive altar," the "gothic candlestick with seven branches," or ilia "white surplice*" ef the singing bo>s, wuicu had been so effectively described ny Dr. Mead, aiid which he had attempted to explain. But that the Dr's memory was not always correct, he had made apparent from the fact, ot his 1 nidstive altar' being a common table. Next eomes the charge of imputing to me the attempt to injure Dr. Muhlenberg, when he was about going to Europe. He did repeat tue rumors in Flushing, and he doubtless may have said that hi* visit was a quiet, gentlemanly way of retiring lrom the school Mr. Oil! hail told hint of it, and they had conversed prospectively about his coming to live witn him. The rumor of the Doctor's depaiture was cur rent, and many respectable individuals spoke of his with drawal, but neither Mr. Uill nor mysetf, in repeating these rumors, intended to impute unworthy motives tu Dr. Muhlenberg. He knows that his friends had endea vored to induce him to quit the school, as he was only wearing out time and life there, without profit. These things he might have repeated to Dr. Mead, but not as ne intimates, with any triumphant conclusion of gaining u harvest from his withdrawal. He did believe at the time that the seliool would succeed better with Dr. Muhlen berg at its head, thou if it were under thechaige of young Mr. Van Boeklea; he thought too, and might have said, that it the latter took it, that some ol the New Yoik pu pils, whose parents wore his friends, would come to my school in pieierence?but that he ever sail anything which could induce Dr.Mead to represent him as meanly, pitifully,aud heartlessly, making out calculations of in dividual profit on Dr. Muhlenberg's ruin, he indignantly and scornfully denied. What was Dr. Mead's position ? At the time these conversations occurred, he was at my own|houte at altriend, an invited guest to examine my pu pils and school, and nowjwilhout a previous iuUaiatiou, without a suspicion on my part, witu recent and renew ed assurance ot Dr. Mead's luendly feelings, our private conversations mormban two years ago are dragged up belote the church and then bole world aganut me? Such a course was too small .'?too small1?sinner as he confessed, with all humility, that he was?fallible as man?impetuous in his temperament as he may be? his course was too, too small As to the reierence to anonymous letter* written "gainst him by a clergy man?this affair was characterised by peculiar cir cumstances, and was viewed by brethren with any thing but approval?he bad been assailed by name in ?he public prints, aud charged with that of which he was not only guiltless but entirely ignorant. This attack he did suppose, on strong ground of conviction, camr I lrom a certain source. Alter one ot the examinations ol St. Thomas' Hall, when Dr. Mead, his brother the Kev vtr. Mead and Dr. Creighton were sitting with him in his study, this subject was introduced?he did not know who began it. He expressed himself doubtless in indignant language iu refereuc* to the attack upon him?nodoubi he spoke strongly, for there were circumstances ol pecu liar aggravation, but to saying anything about renounc ing ministry and returning to the bar to obtain vengeance, tie denied it, and it beais us relutationon its owu|lace. It is a mistake?he said before and repeated that he spoke strongly?he had been cruelly? cruelly assailed on what he was entirely innoceir, u d ha had ample evidence aa to the source ot the aasauu?and when he met with theae triends in hi* own private study, be might and did exprest tumiell in terms of strong indignation; but to impute to i uim a serious determination to throw up his sacred calling for the sake ol vengeance was utterly preposterous. True the conversation had passed from his mind and he bad ne ver recalled until this morning, and could uot recollect the precise words used, but he is perfectly sure that he was addressed on the subject by bis brethicn in terms as strong and indignant aa he had ever ventured to use him self. But up to this morning lie hadviewed Dr Mead as his iriend?he professed to be now, but he had said he would sooner have bis hand cut off than sign his testimonials. - Why ? Because ne had deolared liu would have ven ge auce on an offending brother. If private conversations are to be thus brought forward,wiihout a moment's warn- j log, but with preparation by those who bring them, what was he to do ? Did Dr. Mead remember " u thy brothet sin go aud tell him his taults in secret"?did he say "you speak too atrong and warm on this subject?" H< rememDured that Dr Creighton and himeeli had spoken l it this Ktirject and had he said that he had not acted iike a t hnstian brother and was not pleased with it ? I'hc course he had adopted was unkind and ungenerous He kad bean auddenly aacused ol dishonesty on the state merit ef aclergyiban Jnd lay brother, most of the charger predicated on ittmor He bad met those charges, tbougl tie had no accuser and though he was unprepared. Hi oelieved these gentlemen were innocently inistuKan, but in almost every instance they bad stated what was uot thefact. As t* hi. operations at Flushiug-Dr. Hawk* reteried to Kenyon College, the Bristol Seminary, Bishop Hopkin's school, the male school in North Carolina, all of which had gone down^the school inatituted in Vir- | ginia too kad gone down, and in all these could be tracen links of the same chain of misfortune. In the Bristol school,law had been resorted to?fraud had been charged, but what was done when these institutions tailed? Wen there projector* acoused? Their history was but the repe titionof the itory in his own case. Let him not be singled out then as improvident, unscrupulous, unwise and all the others go unscathed. It is well known to many, that but for Dr. Muhlenberg's private fortune and the assistance ol Iriends, he would have been obliged tc stop St. Paul's Col lege But the question is not alone, am 1 or am I not an hoaeat man?1 am accused of aspiring to the Episcopate oi Mississippi. After wkat he had read yesterday of his election and the testimony of the dele gates from that State now present on this flooi ?he need hardly repeat that he did net seek the Epis nopate of Mississippi If, with a good conscience, he could have aaid no, he would have done so, and why? 1> presents a pi aspect ef nothing but the severest toil in building up the church there. A large portion of the country was new and he would have to endure great pri vations in establishing the church there He did not want the Episcopacy, but he thought he saw a field ripe i for a golden harvest, and that a diocese could be made ol >he western diocese serond to none but that of Ohio Episcopalians were flocking into it from the eastern States ol wealth and intelligence and scattering themselves, as it were, broad cast over the land Even with but the pro visional care which the good Bishop of Tennessee could bestow, it already had seventeen clergymen and as many organized parishes. Alter the Bishopric had bi en tender dered him, in the fearof Ood he touk it, hut not becaus* ha was ambitious or wanted it. Had heto aspired,he could have been elected to another diocese long age But if he had dreamed of such a scene as this, Ood knows henevei would have accepted it! If the path to the House ol Bishops, ia to be through such a fiory ordeal, few, vert few, will dare to attempt its passage No Episcopate kuows ?ten thousand mitres coul I be no compensation for agony ?uch as he had endured Let the House do as they will inrtfe.rence to the Episcopate of Mississippi?it stoon with him but aa dust in the balance ! It was not that he wanted the Bishopric, but he desired the verdict of the Home?the jury which had trifd him on the direct charge of being a dishonest man. Was he ao? Both his accusers here, both Dr. Mnhlenberg, and Mr. Quarterman had dis tinctly staled, that they justly believed he never meant to do wrong. If (ho House had parsed the simple resolu tion offered laat night, that they believed the charges lounded in error?cruel but unintentional, he should have been satisfied ! H -was pained at the distinct allegation of his biother (Dr Mead) ?an allegation made, coupled with professions of warmest feelings of attachment. But he had entered his solemn ssscrvcration and prote-t gainst the signing of his testimonials on grounds, il true, made him an undeserving wretch, unworthy the confidence of the Convent on. But if every brother bkst *ith n warm and ardent temperament?and he con ? ilered it a blessing should be subjected to this ordeal, then it would be better to be possessed ol a cool, cautious, calculating, cold-hearted disposition, which could nevet be blindly seduced into the ?xetcise of a warm hearted act ef virtue At this period Dr Maio*, of N C who had been eager ly listening to Dr Hawks, and was standing in the centre hie .came forward and said hewished to ask nmt a question or two. Ho wanted to know at what time he had seen the canities lighted in the Chapel of St Paul's Cathedral. Dr Hawks was about to answer, when Mr. Memmln *er of C . rose and protested against the question. We were no inquisition?we could not put an individual on thr. stand and examine him te his own prejudice,perhaps! Let us proceed on the principle* of constitutional liberty, II not of Christian duty. He protested against the intro duction of a new set of charges, when the case had been tried. Judge BcaatKff said, at this stage of tha proceedings, it was not in order to propound a?y questions to an indivi dual foreign to the resolution under consideration. The Ph ksidknt aaid. he felt embarrassed as to his course, but would leave Dr Hawks to act aa he chose. Dr Hawks said, he knew what the gentleman from N C. wanted to ask. and he would answer it The candles were burning on Christmaa morning, were lighted before day and continued burning until after day light He was willing toanewerany thing?but it waa not custamary to qaeation an accused person witn a view to hia own cntrl nation There were plentv of questions propounded, hut they did not come from friends?they camo from those who wished to entrap him in bis speech. Dr. Mason ?The brother surely does not refer to me ! Dr. Hawk*.?No, not to you?not to jou, old friend Dr. Mason continued with great and impressive agita tion : Mr. President, this to me is a painful?most painful situation. I have known Dr. Hawks from boyhood?he waa ?originally from my own State?from N. C. I myselt presented him f .r his holy orders. Ood knows, sir, it would sirird me infinite grntifioation to sign his testimo nials, but thera are serious difficulties on my mind, which I wont cleared. Last night, whan the resolution wss ot fared, I was not prepared and I wanted my mind telieved Dr. Mrao made some remarks as to his agency in thesr charges. He felt the most sincere love and respect toward Dr Hawka as a Presbyter, but could not consent to his entering the House of Bishops He would not, he trusted mppose he entertained the least unkind feelings toward* him; ha haa many generona estimable qualities - fot these hu posseisea my love, and I honor him. Aa to his being dishonest, he would give his signature under oatk. that In was not, but when the queation ol hia ruahness of speech came up, he waa compelled to pursue a different course from facta within his own knowledge. Dr. UrrOLD said the hour had arrived at which the House agreed to take up the reeolntion of Mr. Memmin ger and its substitute ; he therefore movad to postpone It until Monday Rev. Mr. AtaiNtON, of Md ??? ' v?d aa aa ameadmant, Uut the (object under con.idaration be referred to a Com mittea to inquire whether there existed any let or hin drance to thei consecration of Bishop elect ol MissiMippi. He enforced his views with some strong remarks, uriius lut rroB the character of the gentleman, and the nature ol the case, no profit could c>me from a public discussion. A gentleman from Vermont rase to second this motion. He.was not prepared to vote ; new and grave mutter had been introduced which he did not think the i.ouio wu ready to act on. Judge BannicR said they had Wn called away from the case. Living in a land of Christian principles and Constitutional liberty?where private reputation and per sonal character, has sacredness in the eye* ol toe people .T .w" b",n doln*' Th" resolution proposes not that the Bishop alect of Mi**.**ippi. shall be consecrated but that his ana wer to certain charge* has been full,ample' and satisfactory Thia is all tha resolution contemplate He argued against the reference to a Committee, as no Committeo could instruct tha judgment of the House whatever course might be puraued or be rendered necra sary on thif occasion, whan an attempt is made to injure the rights of a man, he could not swerve from the duty which God had impoaad upon him, of vindicating a man ??Tt$Z$r. ^"f'd.wh.tever might be the sa'nflce of individual feeling. When parsons plaae themselves bo fore this body in the light of accusers, and their charges are fully met, wa exhibit forbearance when we meieiy ask a judgment on the sufficiency of the answer. If we *T? '? bo ?^countered with new and aucceaiive charges if they are to he turned over to a Committee in the cha racter of an inquisition, to see if there bean additional let or hindrance-it the .arcret hi-tory of a man's heart is to be review, 1?if the sanctity of home la to be invaded? if private an I confidential conversation between a man and his friends, is to be sprung upon him-he cared not what the motive, the injustice is the same, whatever it he?if this course is to be pursued, in Ood's name where ar? wo ? A re we in a christian la-d- in a land of consti tutionnl lib rty?where man's character is regarded, and where we aredii^O'ied to preserve thou- suloguarda which the common Consent of ail mankind hus thrown around individual cheroot,?r 7 Discuosiou could only awaken feelings unfriendly to the ascertainment of truth, and he was therefore willing in hir resolution to strike out the names or the persons making the charges He trusted, as an act of justice, one resolution should be disposed of first. Rov_ Mr Atkiwso* commenced speaking again aa to the reference, when Judge Berrien called him to order for irrelevancy. The PaasiDKm said the question was on Dr. Upfold'a motion to postpone an amendment by Rev. Mr. Atkinson to ne reierred. Dr. UrroLo then said, to prevent difficulty, he would withdraw his motion "r fl VV7'0" then ur*ed a reference at some length to a Select Committee. Mr. MAcpASLAND.of Virginia, spoke to the necessity of separating the question of signing the tastimeniala from the exculpatory resolution of Judge Berrien. Af er show log what he conceived the justice of this course, he said if any gentleman of the House could lay his hand on his <>?*. and can not, in a liberal Judgment, enlightened by the dictates ol conscience, say he is prepared to justify Dr. Hawks, he had a heart he did not envy him the pos session of ~ Dr Masoh, of N. C. The gentleman look* towards me, does he refer to me 7 ' Mr. Macpablanp replied, not at all?not at all. Dr. Mason?I am satisfied with a great part; some parts telLwhy111 opportunity is g.ven me, 1 will ..Mr- VACF.iat.AWD continued?If gentleman discard for he present the question of signing the credentials, is not Or. Hawks to be absolved 7 If the charge is met in the fullness of explanation, what is require." of us aa men 7 Are we not bound to say something / Could we say that suspicion ought to rest on him 7 No gentleman in the or dinary intercourse with his fellow man, would not dis aard in advance of exculpation, all exparte evidence - "J, .

After hi Las passed tie ordeal, ought the House hesitate to say that his defence has been full, ample and satisfactory 7 If he haa shown that those making the charges were greatly mistaken in important matter* ought it not have effect on the judgment of the House I If Dr. Hawks has taken these charges one by ona, ?. i !. , fUilt implied in them?it he haa proved all ! J,AI>^f,blf to Prov?-"' ?>e has triumphantly eatab ? lan0?,'nc?. he would ask again should not the House affirm that he has vindicated himself Judge Ghambbb* rose and spoke at length, to pu* from him and those who thought with him, the imputation which is placed on every gentleman whocnacientiouily relt desirous of further investigation. He also advocated the refereuce to a Committee JfZ-?SH J"A7"m'?'9 Cc dM not ri,e t0 ??**?**?? nut to facilitate, it possible, the course of proceedings ? The introduction of new evidence, he thought, improper for it will make debate interminable, neither it it l^aal or expedient. The Home is now prepared to express it* "pinion an Dr Hawks'reply to specific allegationa.tiut he would have to vote againat Judge Berrien'* resolution, lecause he thought th? whole matter bad not been tho roughly sifted. Ha therefore propi.ted thefollowing ?? Keeoived That In the judgment ol thU Hou*e, the re plies of Dr. Haw a* are sufficient to acquit him of all dis tjnnaaty in his pecuniary transaction* connected with St Thomas lull, and as to the specific instances of intemp< r* e language, referred to In the documents before the House Dr. Tvnn asked if the memorial wero to be ipread on lively"? House? Some one oniwered affirms a ^eT /?r ??*"Op?h* *prkuin favor o'. a reference to a select Committee before any motion in acted on Some explanation* of a personal character pa**ed between him and Judge Berrien. 1 I Fnaaaii of N. Y. thought the resolution* were all out of order, because they interrupted the regular course of proceedings. Dr Hawk* waa not on trial here aa a Presbyter, but we were to coniider hi* qualifications ? a Bishop elect of our Church The gentleman from Georgia, (Judge Berrien) had <aid that the documents came, in an extraordinary manner before the Houie He had before itated that hi* colleague (I)r. iHigbee) and himself to whom they were especially addressed, were ignorant of their preciae contents, but they acted on ad vice, which would have weight with the gentleman, as to the course they should pnraue. He again disclaimed he tngaccuser here, When the*e document* had been read, w? "n,5!0^ *? h*re thMn Printed, and have them prcad before all, that they might be underitood.

He waa sorry to find ao thin an attend ance; however, he felt glad to recognize some eminent frieada of the cause in the room. J.Vf* 9 J*?V0,,i of Albany, waa than oalled on and introduced by the uhaiiman to the meeting at a friend of the cause of tha Liberty party. H? commenced bit remarks by denouncing slavery ai a grievous wrong and au insult to tba country. It was strange how it happened that in a country like this, where allwere ere ated equal. they should have held on so long to slavery. As abolitionists the party looked upon it aa a sentiment abhorrent to tut) common nature of man, that roan should b? tha property of man. He acknowledge t! no maatar but his Creator, and this waa the common sentiment of the abolition party. (Jod constituted men and gave him certain rights ami privileges whiob he had detuned him to enjoy. He made man lord ei the creation, and the blue sky, the arched heavens, the stars in the fli'mimant, the great garden ot nature, were all designed by Ged to gratify the wants an<l wishes of man. (Applause.) Man had certain faculties, mental and phys ical qualification*, which fitted him iartlie high stutiou he was destined to fill on the great th. of the universe. (Applause.) (Jod had given liim certain organs and lac ulties which made him a mighty monument of the Al mighty's wisdom. These organs perform certain func tions?the eye to see -the tongue to speak-the teeth to chew. 1 hese functioua were ail denned, and it waa a very clear thing that no man t ould have a toothache un less he had a tooth. (Hoars of laughter) Having them wzs incompatible with the rights with which God had invested man ; and what was inore horrifying thdn the reflection that so noble a being a* man should be made the slave of man 7 No matter whether he had a black skin or a white skin, and be subjected to the lash of a tyrant taskmaster. (Applause) 'i'he Speaker here gave way to enable ?

Get out of the way every station, Until wo gain emancipation," kopt the audience convulsed with laughter. When Mr. C. concluded a letter wus read Irom the Abo lition candidate, Mr Birney, addressed to theeilitorof tha fiibunr, in relation to the coalition ol the abolitionists with James K Polk, as charged upon them by the Tri bune. The letter, after explaining lacts in relation to ihe nomination of the writer by the democrats ol his native county:?" During my abeence from home last year in New England, it was proposed at the whig convention ol the county in whieh I reside to nominate uie for the legis lature The nomination, however, was made on the ground, as I was informed, that 1 might not be willing to serve If elected, and that the county would be put to the trouble and expense of holding another a action.

Although I have been nominated by my Democratic neighbors, no one in the county would nave spoken of me as of that party had not the cue been given by the wire ?J.?.r1 " ?{ '.he Wh,g party?especially by the originaioi j f tha coalition atory.the Detroit Advertiser, a print that I aa spared neither fact nor fiction to win over the Liberty party in Michigan to the support ol the Whigs, by weak ening their confi lence in me A specimen ot its reckless ness may be seen in the statement transferred to the Tri bune?that if my conference with General Hascall at Flint were divulged, it would doubtless disclose, that my mission to the Kast was undertaken at the instance ol the Loco Kocoa, aa well aa leading Abolitionists ot Now rerk, though cloaked under the pretence ot a visit to in> *on residing in Connecticut.
