Wajhtotok, April 21, lt? Coifrui?OiY|W 77m Arnfi -Vru>t?Inxf>ortant Item* by the way. No agreement. The Committee of Conference between the two Houses, upon the subject of the notice, had a meeting last night, another this morn ing, and another this evening. We expect a report in the morning, an<f? partial, if not an entire surren der of the House to the Senate. Captain Moore, who has been the British bearer of despatches to this Government or some twenty years past, is in town. Doubtless he has important papers for Mr. Pakenham. We understand the cabinet were in session yes terday, and will be again to-morrow. Th* Chairman on Finance in the Senate, tells as that th* s|>ecie clauses of? the sub-treasury are not to take effect till next January; and that, meantime, the warehousing bill and two branch mints at New York and Charleston are to be brought in as colla teral branches of the new system The mints, we suppose, are to be a sort of branch banks of the trea sury ; and the warehouses as places of deposit tor security of dutiqp. So that there will be no special call tor a sub-treasury panic. The present system is most unsafe and uncertain : and a new and ex plicit system lor the treasury is far more imperative ly demanded than fifty-four forty, although both would be better than neither. The barbarous destruction of the poor Sikhs, in crossing the Sutlej, rneeta with no countenance, and next to the masHacreof the Arabs by the French, in the cave of Dahra, will be scouted as an ret of barbarism by the civilized world. Had Gen. Jack son pursued the same system of slaughtering the retreating army at New Orleans, not a man of them would have been left to tell the story. If this be the mission of humanity that Great Biitain is des tined to carry out, ahe is welcome to all the honors. As sure as there is justic* in the eanh, in the day of retribution she will be found w?n ing. Annexa tion ! Texas and the Punjaub Where is ih?* glory! where is the shame 1 Is annexation to be measured by the number of flving men that are slain, or by the peaceable as9rnt of a free people 1 In short, so far from the close of the war in India being an advantage to England in the pacific adiustment of the Oregon dispute, U has ra?h-r excited a spirit of retaliation tor the barbarous slaughter ot the Sikhs. The slaughter in the river gives to the whole affair the bloody contamination ot Tartar barbarism Mr. Webster made another passing lunge into the thorax of Mr. C. J Ingersoll to-day To morrow we may expect a salute from the House. Upon one thing all appear to be agreed, that as soon us the President has ihe authority he will give the " nonce," " discreiion" or no discretion And the notice alone will prevent the controven-y from running into the next Presidency as a war measure, sweeping every thing before it like an avalanche of fire. Give the notice, and we shall settle the quesj tion by negotiation without war Withhold it, and we fight and negotiate afterwards, according to the plan ot Mr. Adains, the interval employed in war being so much tim^ lost in a rxther unprofitable amusement to all concerned, and one in which all will be concerned. Concern the thing, let us settle it and be done with it, and go ahead We believe in the go a head principle. It has been the making of these lijited States. But tall and beautiful as are these twenty-eight daughters of Uncle Sim, they have yet to redeem the Continent Go a head, old uncle, settle the question, and go a-head. Give the notice?make no more joint con ventions of jurisdiction?settle the question, and go a-head. Let us have the notice, and let all parties understand that there is a limitation of twelve months, at the expiration of which, if nothing is done, look out for the engine when the bell rings! Hold to the basis of 49?peace or war! and the Pre sident will not recede from that, nor will the House, nor will the Senate, nor will one man in ten thou sand ot the American people. If that fails, like Bro ther Jonathan in the circus, ofl'wuh your Kentucky jeans and tight A war upon such terms would be a righteous war; and, as we believe in a protecting Providence, especially over this hemisphere?we will stake o ir life upon Kentucky jeans. And the prospect that Sir Robert Peel, ('or he is the Queen of England,) will recede to 49, is rather lugubrious; so that after all, our chances are that the ultimatum ot the President will be 54 40. There is certainly no alternative Between the basis ot 49 and the Rus sian boundary. Pass the notice, and John Bull will discover this fact?the question will be settled and we shall go a-head, on the electrical principle by i land and sea. Welch, Mann and Delavan's Circus, since Mon- j day night, has been the monopoly. For two nights , pas: there were scarcely less than three thousand people present. The performances are elegant?the whole affair is arranged and go'ten up in style. t^The big building?and it is a stupendous construc tion tor the Taritf Fair, on the 2Jth May next?is : nearly completed. It is expected that half the oivil- . ized world will come to town to see the specimens of home and foreign goods and manufactures, that are to be brought in from the uttermost parts of the earth, in illustration ot the l>enign and bletsed elTects of the tariff of '42 The Lowell weaver will show us that he can sell coarse cottons, which are protect ed some 20? per cent, cheaper than they are manu- . factured in England, See. ike. All that we are afraid of, is, that they will overdo the thing. oJiow, by ? their own showing at this sty>w ot all the shows,that ; there is no longer any necessity for the excessive bounties of 1S12. We should not wonder if this gTeat show? save the tariff by a grand roup d* main, will be the very means ot expediting its destruction, by clearly showing that our manu facturers no longer need the stimulants of specifics and minimums. The Smithsonian bill was up to day in the House, to be resumed to-morrow. Mr Robert Dale Owen deserves high praise tor his indefdtigable perseve rance in behalf of this Smithsonian bequest ot a half I million, originally, but now amounting to near 00,000 Mr. Owen is the very man to persevere, e verily believe he will get it through Congress. Respectfully, Tmc Doctor. TWKNTY-NINTH CONGRESS. In Senate. WtiKnnTon, Wednesday, April 23, 1846. Important M eaturrs Brought for ward. Another summer's morning. Prayer by Rev. Mr. Tuitin. Journal. TMI IHDEFEnnr.NT TiEilCir. Mr. Webitxb rote and expressed a deaire to addreia a 2lies',ion or two to one ot the committees o( the Senate, [e relerred to the (abject of the independent treasury, ?ometimee called the sub treasury. Hi* object wa* not to excite any panic He desired to airest or dispel any thing like ? panic aa far ni possible, and to allay appre hension in reference to tbie measure. He would. there fore, addreia himielf to the Chairman on Finance : and he hoped that the honorable Senator would not flud it inconaiatent with bis sense of public duty to give an an awer He would iiko. the honorable chairman, whether the committee hed to far advanced in their conside ration of the bill Irom the other House a? to be able now to atate whether the committee would report the bill with or without an amendment ? If with an amend ment or amendment*, can he now indicate what the amendment* are ? for the meaiure ia one of exceeding importance to the nnblic. Mr. Webiter would farther ask of the honorable chairman at what period it waa pro bable tha bill would be brought before the Senate Be aidei the great importance ot the subject, Mr. Webster aaid he desired i( possible, to know the specific time at which the bill would be reported; because in ? short time, ha should, from necessity, be absent aoma day* from the 8enate. Mr Lewis (Chairman on Finance) said he would taka pleasure in teplying to the Senator as to tha action of tha committee Mr Wssitis.- A little loader. Mr. Lewis stated that he could not answer the ques tion of tha Senator from Massachusetts, respecting the day when tha committee would report the bill. Prece dence would be given to a warehouslog bill, reported by the Senator from New Toik (Mr. Dix, Commeice Committee, special order for llth May next) Other hills would also take precedence of the Independent Trea sury bill; these would be bills for the establishment of branch mints in New York and In Charleston. These were designed as remedial measure*. There were, new, of the public moneys in the depoeit banks, an aggregate of about eleven millions of dollar* Upon this nasi*, the banks had h?en expanding their issues ; so that from this Increeseri peper circulation, the balance of ex changes with England was setting in egainst as. It was deeignad, however, to arrest an immediate depression, by withholding the specie clauses of tha bill from imme diate operation. The committee were unanimous, with the ?iaw of afterding the banks time to prepare for tha new order of things in suspending the action of the spe cie clause*, until the fiist day of January next. The in terim, tha committee supposed, would sITord ample time for the banks and the mercantile community to prepare for the full operation of the lit. The committee were anxious that this system ?this constitutional system for a national currency?and for the operations of the trea sury, should become a permanent law ; but they also wiahad in establishing it, to do it without tHieting even a temporary pressure upon the commercial interests of the country.

IMi down to the present time wu oslled up bjr Mf. Jarnagtn [Mr C. J. Iitgreraol 1 having off* red *?ch a resolution, covering only John Tyler's administration, the resolu tion of Mr. Jurnagin was designed, we suppose, in tha event of these expenditures luiof made known, of hir ing also the expenditures of a like character under Mr Van BtirenV Uen.

In reference to the Kxecutiva message to the other House on the mhject ot the dlabursemeius of the contingent fund of the State depaitmeot, in the first place he en tirely approved of the conre pursued and adopted by the President. In his (Mr W.'t) opinion, the President could have pursued no other course without a violation of law and of public duty. Mr. Webster said be knew that not one dollar of thii contingent fund had been diaburaed without the special order of the President; and that every dollar disbursed was for public purposes, and the papers would show it. But this, said Mr. W., was a matter of so little concern to him that he would forego the proof; for it was of higher public importance that the laws should remain inviolate, than that they should be broken for personal justification. Besides, be wa? not at all apprehensive that there could be any misgiv ing, that either uider Mr. Tyler's authoritv, or by hii own, there had been any misapplication of the few hun dreds or few thousands of dollars disbursed from this fund The President, and the head ol the State Depart ment who could entertain any fear oi the existence of a 1 suspicion in the public mind in this respeot, could have but little confidence in the judgment of the people. The person who could entertain such a suspicion against the department, might well be suspected of having held no very complimentary dialogue with himself. Mr. Web ster would say, first, that there had been f<om this contingent Aim, no malversation, no corruption, no unlawful appropriation, no wasteful or extravagant ex peuditure, to the best of hi* knowledge, bis judgment, ard his belief The President of the United States had expended the fund for public purposes. All averment*, statements, or charges, that there had been any perver sions, any waste, or unlawful appropriation of a dollar of these public moneys, were, in short, utterly ground less and false. One other remark iu reference to the bearing which thia matter must have upon the Senate and upon the country. Whoever bad imputed a mal ai piepriat ion of this fund, had either seen the papers of the department, or he had not. II he hud seen no papers, bis cha'gea were wanton, unfounded, and could not stand II he hail seen them, he would have known what | to state. His silence is conclusive against him ; for, in the absence of all other proof, be would tell all that he knew if he could teil anything Mr. Webster declined to say more upon thh subjeot? he had said enough al ready. He would leave the author of these calumnies standing where be is. I will loave him, said Mr W . in the worst company I could fiad in the world?I will leave him with himself. Mr. Jarnaoin again asked leave to withdraw bis reso lution Mr. Wsitcott. while he earnestly endorsed the value of the secret service fund of the State Department, cited a number of rases such as our relations with Spain and Mexico, in which large appropriations of this kind might j have been of signal service to the government. He wfshed a direct vote of the Senate?anch a vote?a? would , express its hearty concurrence in the refusal of the Pre , sident to answer any calls for the papers relating to this i fund. Mr Mangum eloquently seconded the views of Mr. , Wotcott, and hoped the resolution would be unani- > mously rejected Mr Jarnaoin, with some explanatory remaikt, ap- ! proved ot the President's course in relation ta the call of | the other House ; and would cheerfully concur in the ; expression of the Senate against his resolution. Mr. Bhefse moved to lay the resolution upon tho { table, but withdrew it. Mr. Allen defined the constitutional objections to this j proceeding on the part of the Senate, and presented these ' object! >n? as the grounds upon which he should vote ! against the resolution. Mr Baicr.SK renewed his motion to lay on the table, { and it was lost. And the resolution was rejected.?Ayes 44?noes 1 ?(Mr. Turney, of Tennesse.) FRENCH SPOLIATIONS?BILL Or VIVE MILLIONS. The Vice President announced the bill to be before the Senate for the indemnities arising from French spo liations. Mr. Sevif.r? Member up, sir. The Vico President suspended his itatement. Mr Benton asked of the Senator from Delaware if this bill came up in 'he regular order of the calendar ? Otherwise he should object, a* there wet* one or two bills for the relief ot poor widows that ought to be con sidered. Mr J. M. Clayton explained that the bill was up in it* regular order Mr Bknton?I surrender, sir?I surrender. The bill wai read by its title. It is a bill providing for the ascertainment and satisfaction of claims of Ame rican citizens arising from French spoliations upon American commerce prior to the 31st of July, 1801. Mr. J. M. Clayton, with some introductory re rarks ou the justice of these claims, defined the bill. It appro priated five millions of dollars for their satiafaction. It provides for a board of commissioners to divide the money among all the claimants, tho fund to be divided pro rata ; the dividend accruing to each to bo the final ? payment ; the government for over discharged lrom I and after tho pay ment of this sum of five millions. Mr. ! Clayton proceeded into tho history of these claims, which necessarily carried him into a xarralive of the . international relation* between France,the U. States and > Great Britain, from the revolutionary war down to 1800. i Mr. Clayton's examination of thia branch of his aigu meat indicated a profound industry of research, and a correct historical understanding of the case. At three o'clock be gave way for a motion to adjourn. [ The bill is essentially the same as that which pnssed the Senate at the last Congress, 26 to 15 ; and there can be no reasonable doubt of ita passage at the preaent session, without much debate.

The Spkaikb stated that this to- the day assigned lor the consideration of the bill to establish the Smithsonian Inatitution, for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men. The Heu?e resolved itself into a committee of the ' whole on the state of the Union, (Mr. Burt, of South ' Carolina, in tho chair,) and proceeded to the consider* tion of that subject. The bill was read by the Clerk. It pr >noses that so , much of the property of the lato James Smithson as hc.s been received iu mjney (being $514,16'.)) be lent to the , United State* treasury, at six per c*nt4t>er annum | interest, from the first day of September, 1838, when the i same waa received into the treasury; and that so much ! of the interest as may have accrued on that sum on the 1st ? ol July next, which will amount to $34.1,1*9, or ao much ! thereof as shall, by the boaid ef managers of the institu- | tion established by this act be deemed neceseary, be i appropriated for the erection of suitable buildings, the j enclosing and repairing ef suitable grounds, and for other incidental expenses of the institu'ion; and six per rent interest on the trust fund (SM5,i69) for the perpe tual maintenance and support ot the institution.

Mr. wm, in tb* cotirs* cf his remarks, said that six teen yeats bad elapsed since Mr Sniithaon died, leaving to th* United States more then half a million of dollar* It will have neen ten veers next July since Congress accepted tho trust, and eight years next Septe mb?r since the money was paid, in gold, into the treasury of th* United State*. Distinguished men had, line* that time, moved in the matter, but arrived at no final act. Thar* ar* no doubt aom* (among theni the gentleman from Tennessee) who would return %e money. But this, under th* circumstances, w*uld not l>e becoming in an individual, ilow much less wi h this nation, who ac cepted the trust, in the sight of God and man. for* s*cr*d *nd holy purpose 1 Delay is a denial, and non-us* a forfeiture.

Mr. Joists, of Tennessee, withdrew bis motion, and submitted another; to give the money to the heir* at law, or next in kin, of James Smithson, whenever they may u*k (or the same. It wai not his purpose to make a speech, in bia opinion, however, the whole matter was > wrong. When Congress authorized the acceptance of tba fund, they acted contrary to the powers which they possessed. He admitted that Congress have tba power to borrow money, but not to deal in stocks. He oould not sanction an institution of this kind under the care and direction of th? government. It would be an enter ing-wedge in the treasury, and was an institution which would call for increased expenditures during almost every session of Congress. Mr. SawTKR.?1 understand that the proposition of the gentleman is to refund the money. I am well informed that Mr. Hmithson has no heirs, and never had. If such : is the fact how can the money be refunded ? Mr Jonks ?I understand that be had no children; be had a brother I propose, if there are no heirs, that the 1 money shall go to those next in kin If the proposition which I have submitted fail, and the institution must be established, 1 shall go for giving the State stocks, in which the money was invested, to the board of mana 1 gers, and 1st them manage the institution independently of government. I repeat that Mr. 8mithson had no chil dren. Mr. McCownell.?(lotto rocf)?How in God's name do 1 you know that be had no cbild 1 Mr. Jones was understood to say he had no legal heirs. Mr. J. R.

[Voices?"Oh read !" and laugh ter."] [Johnson defines "heir" to mean "one who inherits by law, a successor."] Mr Ingkbsoll rosumed; and said, while advocating the bill, it we should refuse to take the money, and send it back, we would retain the jewel, and return to Eng land the useless ca.'ket. Mr. Stsnton advocated the bill, opposed the amend ment of Mr. Jones, and contended thai this government was solemnly and doubly pledged to carry out the ob jects of the trust. He showed tbe advantages which would result, not only to the people at large, but to the government, in a scientific point of view. No money was required from tbe government; tbe lund itself was sufficient. Mr. SawvEB proposed two amendments. The first, that the fund lent to the United States shall bear but five, and not six per cent interest. Tbe second, that the scholars to be educated at the Normal Schools, shall be taken from the States and Territories, agreeably to tbe ratio of ' the representation in Congress. Nine-tenths of appoint ments to office were from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and vice vena. Other States were blotted out from the vocabulary of appointments. And this whs the evil^he proposed to remedy. Mr. Ktxn gave notice of an amendment to establish a manual labor school, so that the haDds.of young men may be educated as well a* their heads. Mr. OwkN submitted a lew remarks in reply to Mr. Sawyer's first amendment, and in vindication ot the inter est of six per cent. He said the school was to be no West Point affair, thefpupils would get no *ala>y, and would : have to pay their board. He teared the difficulty would | be, scholars enough, under these conditions, could not bo obtained. Mr. SawrcK said his amendment would do no harm, at all events. The States generally had not been properly j dealt with in regard to appointments, and he wanted to j hoi J those who were to have the care of the institution j to their duty. Mr. Dans, of Mississippi, advocated the bill in all its parts, with one exception, viz : making the managers a body corporate; and contended that we were bound to < execute the trust. Mr. MahSH said that he intended to address tbe com mittee, but would declibo doing ao to day, being un, | well. The question was taken on the amendment! of Mr- > Sawyer, and they were rejected. Mr. MausH moved that the committee rise, and the motion prevailed. CANAL BOaTI.

The Caledonia Nttei?Singular .Srrttt of Runaway!? j Splendid Building?The Markets, Stock Board, $??. The news by the Caledonia reached Baltimore, in an Extra of tho New Fork Herald, laft night, and is this morning spread before the entire community, in the se veral daily paper*. It seems to be of but little impor tance, however, either commercially or politically. Two runaway negroes from Waahington City, were arrestod yesterday a few miles from the city, under singular circumstances. Two genilemen were on a fox chase, and the trail having ted them through a dense woods, they found two ihorses saddled and bridled and tied to 11 tree, with every appearance of having been very haidly >ode. Thinking something wrong, thoy gave np tho fox lor better game?and on searching a negro house near by, fpund two negro men, whom they arrested, and on searching found concealed on the per idot one of them, about $600 in gold and silver. They 1 then confeised that they had hired the horses Irom Wm. | Nailor's in Washington City, for a short excursion. The splendid building about to be erected by Lee It 1 Johnson, on the corner of Calvert and Baltimore street, | will so'>n ba commenced. The workmen are busily en gaged in demolishing the nine buildings which cover the ground on which this magnificent structure is to be erected. Stocb i*d Montr Mabxxt.?There has been a con tinued decline in the stock market during the past week ?and Although a reaction bad taken place in Stat* and City Loans, the maiket generally close* heavy, and sales ate with difficulty effected.

Trouble about the Lowell Peetmaitor, j>c. Tuesday was a very warm and aummar lika day, and the peopla began to think lerioaily of throwing wide their heivy garment* and putting on thin clothing- 1 Every body avoided the sun a* much a* poaaible, and ' sought the shady aide of the street. Window* were thrown open, and the universal exclamation was ? " What a warm day ! It seema like lammer V Yester day, however, put a stop to all such exclamation*. The easterly wind, so common with ui at tbia seaaou of the year, an I so insuffarablv disagreeable, came upon ua in full blast, and dispelled at once all thoughts of summer garments, at least for tho time being.
