The variations noticed in any of the reports of the ' banks of Virginia, are of very trifling importance, com |Ared with those we see in the reports of banks in almost every other State in the Union. The returns of the banks of that State, show that their tmainess is conducted upon proper principles; and whatever change may from time to time be produced in the Movement, is produced by the ramifications of the trade ia tha vicinity of their loca cations, and not by any connection with the speculative operations of tha country.

The Senate took up the House bill making the war appropriations. Un motion el' Mr. Allen, the rules were suspended. Mr. Calhocn opposed all hasty action. He said it would l>c observed that the first portion of the bill amounted to a declaration ol* war, and that we should be sure of being right before making such a declaration. Mr. Allen said, that a* war aciuully existed, no lime was to be lost in voting the requite supplies to protect our troops and citizens. Mr. Mangcx said he was ready to vote any amount of men or money, and without any delay ?declaring that there was as much patriotism on one side of the chamber as on the other. Mr. Calboi'N rejoined. He said we would not delay a moment. He was ready to act now ; but why, ho asked, vote for a bill which made a false the American goverement 1 He said there was declaration that war actually existed, by the act of more meant than actunlly met the eye, or than was demanded for the care and sufety of the army. His mind was made up, and he would neither vote for nor against the bill in its present shape. He might, lie said, be alone. Be it so. He cared but little for popularity. He would not for the sake of making war on Mexico, make war also on the Constitution. Mr. Benton remarked that if the Finance Com* mittee reported the bill as it stood, the Military Committee would do the same. If the former mo ' dified it, bo would the latter. Mr. J. M. Clayton would vote any amount of J men and money, if the bill was truly and faithful j ly reported, and with a view that it might be so ] reported, lie moved to refer the bill to the Com j mittee on Military Affairs. Mr. Bknton then stated the amendments, which the Committee on Military Affairs had agreed upon in the morning. One of them struck out the ! preamble, and declared that war existed. Mr. Allen said that the Committee on Finance ' had also agreed to report the first part of the bill | from the House. The question referring the bill to the Military | Committee, was then negatived by a vote of 20 j to 26. Mr. Allen then said that the Committee on : Foreign Affairs would have made a report, if an : opportunity had presented itself?but the Com ' mittee could not shut their eyes against palpable | and glaring facts, viz: that actual war existed. Mr. J. M. Clayton questioned Mr. Alien as to the fact that war came from Mexico. Mr. Allbn made no reply. As the telegraphic despatch closes, Mr. Benton is reading and translating an official paper in Spanish, issued by General Paredes. House of Representatives. Mr. Winthrop corrected the journal. Ho said he voted for the increase of volunteers' [pay, and not against it. j The House then took up the bill from the : Senate, organizing a corps of sappers and miners. Mr. Giddings made a speech about the army on the Rio del Norte shooting deserters. He was frequently called to order, and at length stopped. The bill was finally passed, and returned to the j Senate. | The West Point bill was taken up in Commit tee of the Whole. Mr. Sawyer spoke against it, and in continua tion of his remarks of yesterday. Another message was received from the Presi dent, covering further correspondence between the government and the army in Texas. This the clerk is reading as the dispatch closes. By tke Last Halls. Washington, May 11, 1816. This has been a most momentuous day here for the nation. At an early hour, the galleries of both Houses became densely crowded with citi zens of both sexes, who wished to witness the pro ceedings, and hear the President's message read. It was accordingly read, as expected, and is now before the country. The people will, of oouise, form different opinions of it; but, like all of Mr. Polk's acts, it will turn out, in the end, to be but a Chinese puzzle. He talks loudly of the invasion of "our territory" by Mexican soldiery, as if the question of boundary between the two countries had been finally settled before General Tuylor took up his position opposite Matamoras. Why, or wherefore, were the troops under Gen. Tay lor, pushed forward to the eastern branch of the Rio del Norte, is a question frequently asked, but rarely answered satisfactorily. I will now give you the true solution of the question. By the terms of annexation with Texas, that State held in its own hands its public lands, in order to cover its floating debt. On investigation, it was found that in Texas proper, the whole public domain had l>een squandered away by the government of the Republic, and consequently the holders of the great amount ofTcxas scrip, lost all hope of being paid from that source. It then became necessary to plunder Mexico of a large portion of the three .States of New Mexico, Connuda and Chihuahua, und all of New Mexico which lies between the Bravo del Norto and the river Nneoes, west of which stream the Republic of Texas never had cithrr civil or military jurisdiction, nor even the shadov* of a claim oUter than that arising from an act of its Legislature, which declared the Bravo to be the western boun dary of the republic; yet, if at the cost of so mueh blood, treasure and national honor, the United States will plunder Mexico of the vast territory lying between the Nueces and Bravo, the State ol Texas will claim the whole territory, and then be able to pny her national debt. Who can tell what amount of Texas serin is held by the members of I the present cabinetiWho haveprojeted this species of plunder and robbery! Mr. Polk has become un easy on tl\e subject, and although circumstances . having unexpectedly arisen to force him to send his message to Congress to-day, he is far?very far, indeed, from taking or permitting his friends in Congress, to take, any step that might be con strued into act* of open hostility to Mexico. Dur ing the discussion on the bill of to-day granting hiin ten millions of dollars and fifty thousand vol unteers, every amendment that was offered de claratory of war against Mexico, was voted down. This was in accordance with his instructions last evening to the military committee, who were or dered to bring in no bill without a reservation of that character in it, without further advice from him, lest it should embarrass his plans. The operation, therefore, of the managers of this Texas scrip war?for that is its proper appellation?is to remain strictly on the defensive, and keep, if they can, the lands lying between the Nueces and the Rio Bravo for themselves. The country knows nothing of this vast scheme of personal aggran dizement, which perhaps some men in Polk s ca binet are projecting, and for whose profits the blood and treasure of the uation will have to be poured out. Weak as Mexico is, she may yet t>afl1e the tuaehinatious of those men to plunder her of her territory, and may inflict upon us, who will become, innocently, ot course, purtirijni cri tninif in the wrong to be done upon her, evils which we have but a faint idea of now. It is the duty of every one to sustain the honor o( the coun try whenever assailed by an enemy ; but it is no less the citfzen's obligation to investigate and fer rit out the true causes of the attack upon it. This, I am sure, will be done, and things now apparent ly hid will be brought to light before long. The following is the bill as it finally past the House by a vote of 178 to 14:? Mr. Haralson, from the Committee on Military Affair*, reported the following bill:? A bill te authorise the President of the United States, under certain contingencies therein nested, to accept the ??rvice? of volunteers, tad for other pnrpeees.

Sec. 10. And be it further enacted: That whenever tho militia or volunteers are called, and received into the ** r ; vice of the United States, under the provisions of this act, they shall have the organization of the army of the i United States, and shall have the same pay and allowsn | ces, except as follows, to wit: Privates of infantry, artil I ?o<l riflemen shall receive ten dollars per month, and privates of volunteer mounted corps twenty dollar* per month, for their services and the uso and risk of their hories. \ on must not bo surprised to hear of General Taylor's capture by the next news from his camp, t w?eYer Ket it from there. It is admitted by nil that Point Isabel must fall into tho hand* ol tho Mexicans; and if so, is it to be supposed that they will neglect to fortify that and every other poiiit along tho sound, from Corpus Christi inlet to Point IstibeL where reinforcements might be landed for Gen. Taylor's relief 1 I think they will not. No thing but light boats can bo employed to transport our men from New Orleans to Corpus Christi; and then, if they have to fight their way to Matii moras, Uon. Taylor and his men must be either starved or captured, before they get to them. The whole adair is lamentable, anil sickens the heart to think of it. Ariel. Washington, May 11,1846. There was on unusual stir and excitement for an hour previous to the meeting of Congress, this morning particularly iu the House of Representa tives ; tho attendance of members was very large, and the galleries were packed with persons, all anxious to witness the proceedings. In the Senate the same anxiety was apparent. All the foreign ministers were in the lobby, and also among the visitors was the late minister to Mexico, Mr. Slidell, (who has made a splendid failure,) and the gallant Teeiunseh Johnson. The ; capitol was filled with ladies. Beauty must nl i ways incite chivalry to glorious deeds. After the reading of the message, which your reporters will send you, quite on interesting de bate artMc on printing an additional number of the accompanying documents, in which Mr. j Calhoun, Mr. Allen, Mr. Cass, Mr. Mor^iead, ? Mr. Sevier, Mr. Houston, Mr. Crittenden ami others participated?the expressed opinion was unanimous, so far as money and men were to be voted to meet the present exigencies, but it also , seemed to be the determined resolution of the I Senate, that the Executive and Cabinet would bo immediately called to account for the harm they I hail done. Mr. Crittenden's speech was very I beautiful and rhort, and all were sutiiciently pa- , j triotic. [The Washington papers of to-morrow I will contain the debate.] Tlie message was re ferred to the Committee on Foreign Relations and to the Committee of Military Affairs. The bill to increase the army to one hundred men to each company was passed, and also tho bill to raise the regiment of dragoons. In the House, after the reading of the message, they had another debate. The Committee of Mi litary Affaiis reported the bill to raise 80,000 vo- j limteersv and appropriate ten millions of dollars, which finally passeti, 176 to 14. i There is no additional news this evening from , the seat of war. It is probable General Scott j may be ordered to the command. A very interesting anal exciting debate may be expected very shortly in the Senate. The intention of the Cabinet to throw the blame | on Oeneral Taylor, falls to the ground. It is very ' | difficult for Congress or the people to be deceived ' on that point. The large appropriations now required, and more to be asked for. gives the go-by to the tariff of the very distinguished and patriotic Secretary of the Treasury, who sees at one blow all his pin-i j knocked from under him. Pei.iiam. Washington, May 11, 1846. General Worth luu been confirmed in his com* t tnand as Brevet Brigndier General, and leaves for I the camp in the morning, and will probably take charge of the auxilinry troops going to the aid of General Taylor. Large sumi of money were to day placed in the control of the proper officers, and energetic means will be exerted for the activo prosecution of the war. There has been great excitement throughout the day, and it is well that Sunday has intervened, because the several cliquet and the leaders of th<j factions, have been in consultation as to what it best to be done by each. It was apprehended that i i the whig* would commence a factious opposition, and express a sympathy with the enemy in their desire to criminnte the administration. I think ! the sober second thought of this evening is, thut the honor and interests of the country are to bo asserted and vindicated?that whatever censurc ' may be considered as due to the past, there must be no halting as to the present or the future. Washimoton, May 11, 1846. It is currently reported and believed, that Brevet Brigadier General Worth has been re-ordered to i Texas, to supersede Brevet Brigadier General Taylor in command of our forces. Such being ! 1 the case, it would be proper to review the recent course of the former, who is known to be politic, wary, and intriguing. General Worth, in a high-sounding letter, as it 1 seems, with a view to make himself a martyr in theses of his brother brevet officers, resigned his commission. Did he wish that his resignation , should be accepted 1 Let the following facts de cide. In the same letter he offered hi* services I ' to General Taylor, to act in any capacity to which ] ! he might be appointed. This was based upon tho ground of duty to hn country. How much ' i he was influenced to serve his country, in lieu of j ! self, his subsequent acts must prove. General Worth left the unvf at the South. In a ? short time he was in Washington. With a view ? ! to place him conspicuously before the pnblie, an j account of his interview with the Mexican gene- j ral was furnished for publication by some kind | friend ; and it was, no doubt, without the know- j i ledge, wish, or consent of General Worth?meve 1 ly tne effervescence of a spirit that dictated the I letters so complimentary to General Worth .when on the St. Lawrenoe frontier, and in the Florida | campaign. There could, of coarse, have been no design in this. His superiority to all other officers of the army, could alone have prompted it. I Soon after General Worth's arrival in Wash | ington, it was published, as his opinion, that there was no danger o4" a collision with the Mexican I troops. How much credit can be given to hi" 1 opinions the result has proved, some will exclaim. 1 Notsofast. Does it not seem likely that he cx- j pressed that opinion to shield himself from the | censure which would be passed upon him, had i I he stated any other. Does it not seem probable i I that Genataf Worth came to Washington J J express and finite purpose of effecting an object; j and if it should prove true, that he lift* supersed ed General Taylor after hi* return to the seat of war, must it not be inferred that his presence here was connected with the result which has en sued, us well as his brevet runk 1 Let the army look to it.

But before aa examination of the subject, the ordering so vast a number would stand as a full endorsement of the me* soge, and this, it appears to me, would be a hasty pro Mr.XnoHT responded. The people were anxious la have this information. He did not know why the pilal ing shoukl l>e considered an endorsement of all that had been done, or of what had been omitted. As for hlmemf he endorsed every word of the message. Tim had not declared war; but had called for a sufficient fore* and means to repel the enemy. He thought there could be no objection to the printing. When we cam* to de liberate uj>on the question, then ho was ready to meet it \fr. Alux eloquently pleaded for the extra printing. ? The people had a right to the information of this messag* , i It was too voluminous for the newspapers, and it wa* th* 1 duty of the Senate to tarnish It to the people. II the Presi dent had not declared war, he tells us that war actuallT 1 exists. He asks us to give nationality to the fact This I was not then the time to deliberate, but the time to act? I How ar* we to achieve a peace with Mexico, ifwe era allowed to move only upon one square of the board whil* she is moving over tho whole board > We can have no peace unless we proceed to hold Mexico responsible for an actual state of war. I move, sir, the ayes and noes upon the printing of the extra number. Mr. Sevieb?Did 1 understand the message wa* refer "^The Vice Psrsinr.wT?No, sir, it has not been referred. Mr. Sevie*?Will tho Senator withdraw the motion to print until the reference is made 1 Mr. SrrioHT?Certainly, sir. Mr. J. M. Ci^ttoh suggested that that section of th* message which related to the hostile invasion of Texa* b* referred to the Military Committee, and so much a* related to the question of a state of war, be referred to U>* Committee on Foreign Relations. vti oa no ?ab?"that's the qrrsTiow.? Mr. CiLMocK said that his object, in what he had said, had been in part effected by this motion of the douhl* ro fcrence. We should not go post haste In eo grave a nueation. That wo should not endorae thia queation ?? actual war too huatily, wa* hi? object. Tho Senator from Ohio is of opinion that war actually exist*. I do not think it does, according to the constitution. Ther* is a clear distinction between actual hostilities and a state ot war. There may be invasion; but under the constitution there is no war?there is only a state of hostilities, which is distinct from an actual state of war. And this is th* point which requires our deliberate action. Therefore, while he was readv for any measure which wa* necsse* ry to the national rights, he was anxious that wa should be governed by the constitution. Mr. Sevieb contended for the printing. There wouw l?e nothing out of order in that proceeding. Mr. Calhovw explained. Mr. Stvira moved the double reference to th* Military Committee and the Committee on Foreign Relations, a* suggested by the Senator from Delaware. [Several Dills and resolutions were reported from th* HottM.l Mr. Srvira.?Do** th* Senator withhold th* motion to print until the reference is made. Mr. SrEi*HT?-Y*s, sir, ccrtainly. Mr. MoarxEAD concurred in the proposed reference to two committees ; and in the opinion of th* Senator from South Carolina, war could not exist under th* Constitu tion unless by some legislative act If war did exist, than it might prove that the Kxccutive had usurped th* p*w*r of Congress. But this was not the tim* to discuss that question. H* concurred in th* reference of th* ??*? ||ft, Mr. J. M. Ct-ATTew, with so mo remarks lapon the refe rence of the message, said be was prepared at oace to W for the milbons of money that would be required, and for the volunteers for the defence, without stopping tod*' bat* how th* crisis was brought about. Ha dieagtaad with the Senator from South Carolina that war did not exist The President declares the country in an actual state of war, and he calls on us for men and supplies, aad they should be granted promptly and efficiently. Mr. Aecheb concurred with the Senator from South Carolina, (Mr. Calhoun.) The President did not affirm* state of war?he could not affirm it: for, as a legal ana constitutional act, It was not true. ..... Mr. Sevieb asked t* hav* read th* copy of the decla ration of war of 18W. That would carry out his id**. Mr. Abcheb maintained his position, that locally and constitutionally war did not exist; it was_ folly to sup pose that war In this eaaa would exist, without th* *<>? tioa of Congrese. He concurred,however, in th* pro pristy of the reference proposed. Th* committor would report in season for action, perhaps to-morrow. Col. Bekto* next took the floor, and was proceeding10 ,f?AUttle louder! A little louder!] Col. Bevton said there w*re two distinct nropoaWon* in the message. The president announces a hostile mra sion of the United States, that's the flret proposition. 11* then proposes a force to b* raised, commensurate wtt* the exigencies of the crisis; that's the **cond, sir. H*r* then are two distinct subjects for action. Col Bontou then argued that the means should be furnished, and that the enrollment of volunteer* was the best plan. Thun far it was a military question. As to thsfcusftionof th* th* existence of w*r, that was property a subject for th* Committee on Foreign Relatione. Mr. Ai.lex cheerfully concurred in what wss saidbT ths S.nator from Missouri.
