During the past year the progress of this institution haa been regular, the balances increasing every month, the aggregate depositee having increased nearly thirty per cent, and the number of depositor* full twenty-five per cent The proportion of larger and smaller deposits re main about the same as at the close of previous years. The rate of interest haa recently been increased, and hereafter five per cent will be paid upon all bona fide deposits, the aggregate of which shall not exceed fifty pounds. These institutions have been established in various parts of the world, for the purpose of enabling those' who ac cumulate money very gradully and by their daily labor, to have some place where it can not only be secure, but where it can work for itself, and increase. Without these institutions the Industrious classes would be compelled to keep their little earnings by them, subjcct to all the dan gers of depreciation if in paper, and the losses if in the precious metals. It would not accumulate under the most favorable circumstanccs any faster than by the ad. ditions from saving, and would at all times be a source of continued alarm for its preservation. The desire for in creasing a deposit made in those institutions by many of those depositing, is so great, that their earnings accumu late more rapidly in this way than in any other. A few dollars or a few pounds, would be deposited in a Savings Bank, which, but for the existence of these institutions, would be expended foifthat' which could be done without. We therefore consider these banks, not only safe depo. sitories, when judiciously conducted, for the trifling sur plus earnings of the industrious classes, but as incentive) of economy and for accumulation among those classes.

Mr. Johnson, from Louisiana, reported back the bill for the adjustment of sunprtidrd pre-ein|? tion land claim*, with amendments. After considering private hill*, the Senate ad journed over till Monday. Hour of Rt|imfiiUtlvri. The House refused to go into Committee, on motion of Mr. MeKujr. Mr. Adams moved to sus|>end the rule* to ena ble him to otter resolution* calling on the Prem dent for further information respecting deserter * from the army, and authorising tho President to have arrested, and tried for murder, tliose who had shot soldier*, if any were shot without trial. The motion to suspend the rules to receive the resolutions, was lost. The House then went into Committee of the Whole, and took up the Post OlKee bill. Mr. Gidpisgs, of Ohio, rose, he said, to a privi. leged question. He went on to make a severe speech against shooting deserters, without trial.? No worse murder would it be, if a corporal's com. inand had been ordered to shoot members of Congress. A discussion ensued, in which several members took part. Mr. Darragh, of Pennsylvania, is speaking as this dispatch closes. By the Last Halls. Washington, May 6, 1846. Congrtu. The proceedings in the House to-day, were suf ficiently diversified to be a little more interesting than for several days past. There was a question of privilege which is easily explained. In the libel ease before the Circuit Court, between Col. Ben ton vs. Gov. Thomas, it has been thought by the former that if Dr. Relfe, of Mo., a member of the House, and a brother of Mrs. Linn, could be brought before Court, he could be made to testify to such facts a* would overthrow the aftidavit of facts which Governor Thomas expects to prove against Mrs. Thomas, daughter of Governor Mc Dowell, in reference to her alleged seduction, adultery, &c., by the testimony of Mrs. Linn her self. Hut the doctor was unattachnhle, from his privileges as a member of Congress. Consequent ly, Mr. Dromgoole, of Va.?we say consequently, because we believe he was put up to it?moved that the Hon. Mr. Hopkins, ol Va., and others, be privileged to attend Court, if they should think proper. Here a debate arose, and the motion be ing finally amended to apply exclusively to Mr. Hopkins, it was carried?Mr. Hopkins himself voting against it. The whole purpose and scope of the amendment was overslaughed, in being so framed as to exclude Dr. Relfe. The whole iMate of Virginia seems bent upon the prostrntion of Gov ernor Thomas; and tnere is no conjecturing where this bitter warfare will stop. The House next took up and passed the bill makinu discrimi nation in importations of Java coffee. In answer to a resolution offered by Mr. Adams, the President says, that two deserters from tho army on the Rio Grande, were shot, and that four were drowned in attempting to swim tho river. There was a debate upon the printing of a long document from Mr. Gordon, late consul at Rio, on the subject of the African slave trnde. (See your reporter's mi uutes of the House.) A number of local bills were acted upon in the Senate, and the bill of five millions for French s]K)liations, was further postponed till Monday, when it will come up as the spccial order. Mr. J. M. Clayton will reply to Mr. Dix's late argument against the hill. In regard to the late movement amongst certain democratic, members, looking to an adjournment of Congress in June, to meet again in Octobcr, we are requested by several members from the South, to suite that our associate correspondent, " Ariel," was entirely mistaken. So far from the South being anxious lor delay, they arc especially desirous to act upon the tariff before an adjourn ment, and will be satislied with the bill as it is, if they can do no better. It is the members from Pennsylvania, New York and the North who are anxious to stave off the tariff; nnd certain of the Western members would also liivor an adjourn ment in June, in order U> take part in the State election" in Indiana, Kentucky, and other States of the West, which will coine off before the meeting in October. This plain view of the rea sons will very readily indicate the origin of the movement?a movement whieh, even by the ana themas of the organ, has not as yet been conclu sively suppressed, though partially suffocated. Washington, May 6, 1816. The premonitory symptoms of si fierce nnd bloody conflict with Mexico have at last manifested them selves. By the mail of this evening, we learn that a party of our troops that were out in search of Colonel Cross", had been attacked by a party of Mexicans, by whom Lieut. Porter and three of his men were killed, and the remainder, except live who csca|>ed, taken prisoners. The reaaion assigned for this defeat, in a small way, is rather curious, and somewhat calculated to excite one's risible faculties, if the occasion did not call for the expression of other feelings* " The men's powder was wet P' This is really too bad. By a simple o]>eration of the rule of three, we can calculate to a T the loss which we would have to sustain, if the whole of our brave little army were to engage the enemy " with their j?owder wet,'? when four out of about twenty were killed, and ten of them taken prisoners. We should then have aliout fourteen hundred left to tell the talc that tlieir powder was not dry. Let us carry the cal culation a little farther still. How would it be with us, were we nt war also with England, and had no other rulers to govern the country than the present imbecile administration 1 Why, it is plain that we should be swallowed up as Jonah was by the whale in less time than, we are talking of it, because of the secretiveness of our " Young Hickory"?rnUier too young I confess in public affairs, in keeping every thing to himselt, and not informing the country about them. Yes, Mr. Polk is " Young Hickoty," with a ven geance ; he It a twig, perhaps, of the old stock? an under-growth, which bends to every broese, and still remains a twig. What, tlierefore, is the country to do with such an administration 1 It have not yet met with a dozen men, either in or out of Congress, belonging to those that brough it into power, iliat have the least confidence in him. They look with suspicion upon his conduct, and doubt the sincerity of his professions; of friends, therefore, he is entirely denuded. He may haw litany a supple knee to bend before him for official favors, who flatter and fawn to obtain tliem j but beyond this, his hold on his own party is of the very weakest kind. If war we must have, nnd cannot possibly avoid, I liope it may piMWi Providence to postpone it until this itdmiti i ration retires to the shades of private life, from whence tliey ought never to have Imjcii drawn; lor a more buugiiiig set of dolts, with theexoe|? tion, perhaps, of the Secretary of State, were never he lore congregated at the bead ol'the afl'airs of any nation. In inj letter of yesterday, I gave you a glimpse of Mr. Bancroft'sVtler, or report, recommending a reduction of the officer* in the Navy, just at the time vi lieu we are at war with one power and threatened with war by anotlier Mr. Bancroft ha* nnt, certainly, made out this report without die consent of tlie President; and thns, taking such lobe tlta fact, what arc we to think of Mr. Polk lor ?l?i?, after having in his message recommended an increase of this very force.

JackMO, and the party with which he acted. In tin* letter there is a iort of*valance of this, which , many may overlook, ami which i* now my reason 1 (or referring to it hen* lie draw* a contrast be | tween the niiiuber of captain* in the ?ervice in I IH2K, the Inst year of John Q.

The Sec retary of the Navy allows us tlint in the last year of Mr. Adams* administration there were only sixty-two captains and commanders; while in 1842 a |teriod covering Jacksou's hiuI Vnn Buren's ad ministrations, the increase in these two grades has been one hundred and three, or one hundred and sixty-live in all. This is certainly an uukind cut upon "Old Hickory'* reputation for economy and a rigid construction of tne law, coming iu* it does from a inctiilier of "Toting Hickory V* Cabinet.? We all admit that there ii> it larger number ol'-ofti cer* in both the army and navy than are actually required for our |?eiiee establishment; but why or , wherefore is the rctluetidh recommended now, when we know not the day or the hour that twice i our present list of olticers may be. required .and I, too, alter the time when both Mr. Polk ! and Mr. Bancroft had recommended au increase I in that bnmch of tlie service! The object of alt this is to show the country that they are actuated j by a desire to economise the public money, while at the same time those men cncouragc its outlay in a thousand other different ways, ijot absolutely , required. The system of favoritism practiced by the President and head* of departments, in ap pointing to and keeping partisans in office, woo I receive large salaries for nearly doing nothing, is beyond belief. As I am thoroughly acquainted with the time employed daily, on an average, by the clerks in all of the departments, I shall one of these days, give you n correct analysis of this wholesale system of fraud upon the country, which is practiced by those having the appointing power, in paying persons from 91,000 to ?1,000 per an num for, a* I have said altove, doing nothing. There is not one of the departments that ought not to lx* reformed in this respect, and made to exhibit the amount of actual labor performed in each iu detail. All those recommendations of the Presi dent and heads of departments to reduce salaries and tlie number of officers in the public service, is | done entirely for Buncombe, like many of the speeches made iu Congress. It is all gammon, and Mr. Polk and his Secretary of the Navy know it very well; yet, while playing this game of two faces under a hood, thev will not fail to bring tho navy, if they can, into disrepute witli the country. ! The whole of this is a small jiotuto affair, take it | from beginning to end. Arikl. Washington, May?, l&ttf. Local Affairt-An Literati tig Diih of Salantagundi. Exercises by the juvenile class of the Columbia College at llev. O. 13. Burns' church to-night. Called in. Specimens in elocution by the boys highly creditable; and we like the taste of the black gowns in which they sjtoke. These ample sleeves and spacious robes made the youngsters look like doctors of divinity?D. D.'h?and i'l'aith, wo wish all the D. D.'s could speak as well, or the M. C.'a cither. Didn't call in to hcur Dr. Reilly oil the Turks, to-night?he completely satisfied us last night that they were a loafing set of bar barians. Col. Benton has been rather intractable in court. " Swear the witness, sir, swear the witness." The Court had to call him to order. The Colonel sits there in all the pride of Tamer lane with Bnjnzet in a cage before him. God grant that nobody may be killed in this unnatural prosecution. It looks ominous?it has an awfully portentous suppressed mutuality of vengeance nbout it. We go for a compromise ; or we fear that war is inevitable. Governor Thomas bears himself, sane or insane, very like a man of sense. He is one of the finest looking of a house full. He stands near six feet, fine figure, intelligent face, clean head of hair, slightly silvered, cut short, and smoothly combed almnt his temples. His countenance is pleasant and really fascina ting. We don't wonder that Miss M'Dowell loved him; the only wonder is that two such plea sant looking people should full out by the way. Mr. N. 1. Willis is still rusticating among ill. He looks as fresh as a water-lily. Shouldn't won der if he were to lie sent off on a mission some where, after a little?perhaps to the Tvnee Islands. He wants something much. Judge Oakley of Il linois is here. Witliinuday a slight increase of travellers; but the arrivals are nearly reduced to the summer level. We expect the great fair will bring all down East down South. We have room for them, and plenty to eat; and if we may believe the temperance pajier, there is no lack of cakes and ale. They have got a young man in the capi tol doing up portraits 111 brick dust, lie has paint ed one of Gen. M'Connell, which is so striking a likeness, that it would have mado a speech when railed on, had not the artist given him the lockjaw. Our youthful Raphael will do well to pound his brick dust a little finer, and throw in a little more charcoal kin the back ground. Hcaly has a rare lot of Congres sional portraits in the Ilotundu. Gen. Jackson uml Henry Clay are there, and Daniel Webster and Lord Ash burton, over the treaty signed and scaled ; ami Mr. Calhoun is there, and General Cass, and Mr. Archer, and Mr. Yulee, and a num ber of others; but not one of these beautiful works ran touch Cooper's portrait and landscape of the " Doctor." There is a truthfulness in the portrait and the figure, a iwturalness in the landscape ; and, altogetlier, the painting is a poem that tells of a summer's sun-set?of green fields, and dark mountains, and pleasant recollections in tlie lights und shadows of the sun himself. Mr. Cooper has gone to Tennessee, and we ex pect he will bring btu;k in the full a painting of the Hermitage, and aiufher of the late residence of Col. Polk, at Columbia. We would also suggest lohim a painting of the scene on Duck Creek, where those forty-five negroes were branded on the back with the initials of J. K. P.. putting Roor back in the foreground, applying the hot iron to lhe shoulders of an old negro smoking a pipe du ring the operation. The news of this evening concerning Mexico is, hat there tins been no fight at all, and that the Mexicans can neither be kicked into a fight, nor persuaded to pay their debts, because they can't right and canst nay. The next step, therefore, will be to annex cm?gold and silver mines and nil. We shall have to unucx 'em. As au act of Christian charity we ought to annex 'em. Mexico would come in just now as a most valuable ad junct to the sub-treasury. Mr. Henry M. Paine, the great shot at, as they rail him, was here a few evenings ago, unscathed, save by the small pox, of which he nas had a re rent uttaek. It seems that neither bullets nor the "mall-pox can extinguish him. He is a keen, in telligent fellow, that same Paine, and we rather ?uspect tliero is something yet to be known COTi jennng Santa Anna and those papers. Waiihsotow, May ?, IBM.
