Mr. Half, presented a petition for th? repeal of th* Fugitive Slave law. Laid on the table. Various other petition* w*ro Introduced. THANKS TO A1HT OFFICERS. Mr. Ii'rkkv introduced a joint resolution, amenda tory of the joint resolutions of 1848, expressing the thanks of Congress to Generals Bcott and Taylor, by directing th* President to have made swords, with suitable devices, to be presented to all Msjor Osnerals and Brigadier Centrals engaged in the battles under Osnerals Seott and Taylor. THB AMMTAD NKiiRO <'ASE ? (HARF DEBATE BETWEEN MFSSR* CLAT, HALE, AND OTHERS. Mr. Mason's resolution, direoting inquiry into the propriety of paying Spanish claimants, arising out of th* Amistad case was taken up Mr. Chase repeated the oircumrtanoes of th* Ami rtad case and denied that there was anyjuiticein the claim* against th* I'nlted State* on aooouat of this case. Mr. Bale said this claim was the most outrageous demand ever heard of in these day* of parfoot harmony and fraternal lor*. When agitators were dead, and agitation quieted, it was not *afe to push th* moral ?ense of people too lar by such claims as those. Though those who ban resisted slavery may now be tranquil, their feeling was (till exiiting at the bottom of rooming tranquility. Mr. Ci at *aid this resolution was on* of inquiry. Hi* opinion* on the juatlc* of the claim wore not Qxad either in favor of er against it He could not but re nark on the evidence, that th* peace and harmony of th* recent meaaurs* were more effectual than th* eondnot of certain Senators. The agitation on domes tie slavery was at an end. and the Senator from N*w Hampshire and tho*e who aot with him. seize upon ev?ry question relating to the foreign slave trad*, and endeavor to make some capital out of It to revive agita tion on domestic slavrry. The Senator from New Hampshire voted In th* minority on the siavetrad* the other day. The Senator himself admits that the party of whloh be ha* been a leader is now at the bottom, and (here I hope they, and all others who desire agita tion on domestic slavery, will remain, forever I believe they will never ria* again to ditturb the country Mr II ai e said he never had introduced agitation. Ue did not introdnoe this *lav* trad* pr >j*ot the other day ; nor did he lotroduee this proposition. The Sena tor from Kentucky undertook to read him a lecture of a peraonal cbarao'er. lie was lectured under a belle that he we* at the bottom. He knew no one more oa pacltaied. from experience, to lecture on the conduot becoming those at the bottom, than the Senator from Kentucky. U e was no prophet, but he would venture to deelare, that my man who placed himself as a csn dldate for popular favor in any State in the I'nirn on the ground of being the author or supporter of the quiescent compromise of tb* last session would find himself in the position of a man spoken ofintheOreek fable, who. when the ship was wrooked. and while every one seiied something to support him la tb* sea. unfortunately took hoid of an anchor, and was carrisd to the bottom. The Chair said he must arrest thi? debate, a* the rout promise was not the subject before the Senate Mr. Hai i - According to military law. wh*a a man is srrested he fives up his sword I yield Mr Mason raid the resolution we* on" of inquiry only The subject had been reooin me nd*d to th* at tention of Corgres* by President Polk Mr Ch *?t raid that he would introdnse any subject, and would speak on any *ul>jeet be thought proper, regardless of what the Senator from Kentucky or any one else might say. He never Introduced agitation Mr. Half moved 'hat the resolution lay on the table. I.oet? yeas 0. nay* 43. The six yea* wcr* Messrs Baldwin.

Th* resolution to olo?* th* debate on the New Tork ? nd California Branch Mint bill wa* amend*! by ax tending th* tlm* Iron twelve to three o'clock to-day The n*u*e went Into Committee of the Whole on the Slate of th* t'aion on that bill. Mr. Kino, (whig) of N*w Jersey, replied to the re marks Mr Chandler delivered yesterday, lis differed from him a* to th* capacity of the mint at Phlladel. phla to coin from *eventy-flv? to one hundred mil lion* per annum, passing by double eagle*, and eola" Ing the smaller pieces, the capacity would not amount to thirty millions Ths gentleman from Pennsylvania ?eld that the transportation of bullion from New Tork *e Philadelphia. tor eoinaga and sending back coin, could be effected for fifteen thousand dollars per an. num by means of Adams' Kipress But he. (Mr King) wa* sure, whenever sueh bargain should be made, it would not be for that sum Insluding in surance and other etpenses It would eost two ban drsd snd forty thousand dollars He said that the cost of a lot of ground In Now York, for th* erection of a building, machinery, he , would be |e?* than la Phlla delfhia and twl*e a* much money would be coined in the fbrmer place for two hundred and fifty thou tard dollar*. These buildings would be more fer utilitarian porpose* than for the eye lie thought It right that th'resbonld be a brarch mint In Cali fornia He opposed Mr. Chandler * amendment, who proposed that there shell be en assayer's office la ftew York whence the depositor of gold shall receive a c< rtlfl' ete t?> be receivable fo: pnblis due Thi* eoght n -t to be considered for a mom?nt It would W tn eiie^t tc a paper cntre-r cy rf t -rtv million*. ? e< d re. ? ir-.bl? ?? n" r ? r I ' - -i'sr plac ? fi f e>> ? e gc d from ftew > ork to Philadelphia to be eolned. nru.d h* a* ibeurd a* to rtqulr* tho farm- r lo -stab llih bla threabiag ?Mhlat in ? neighboring town. Is eonol uaion he (bowed that the Philadelphia Mint waa in tbe wrong place. Mr Dn.it>, (dam ) of Ohio, contended that tbia wu not the tima to incur tba |expena*a of another mint; tba eatlmatea tor tba expenditure! of the preaent year will exeeed tboeeof iMt by alx or aeren miUiona, be aidea, we have ? large national debt Thla eatablUh m*nt of a mint la New York would iavolve another million ef dollara. We ware told yea terday, and by report of the director, that the faollltiea of the Phila delphia mint bad been inereaeed to Are or alx time* It# former capacity t or coining. II tbeae facta be true, why oreete another mlat ia New York f It oae be erected in California, the influx of bullion into New York would be prevented. He oalled on the committee to eoademn at onoe the propoaltioa Mr. UoLMKa (dem.), of 8. 0 . contended that if it be eaaentlal'to establiah a miat in New York, do ao; bat do not do ao on tbe repreaantationa from that city, when no neoeaxity haa been ahowa te exiat for lavolv lng tba government in auob a large expenditure. Boppoae the mint at Philadelphia la Ineaffleieat, what then ? Katahliih a mint in California Thla would ?uperaede the necnaalty for a mint in New York. He had no objection to New York becoming aa rich aa Tyre lier cititena ought to rally aroaad tbe govern ment, for without lta action, through the monetary ayetem. and taxation and diatributlon pclioy, aba would become, aa New York ought to be-a reapecta ble town, aa large aa New Oneana aad Charleeton. (Laughter.) Mr Phokix (whig), of New York, replied to Mr. Chandler . and referred to atatiatte* to ahow that tbe n^at at Ph ladelphla la tneapaMe of eel alag the large amount of bullion conatantly arriving, at (few York particularly, and doee not meet the reouiremeata. Ha epoke of the expenae ot traaaportlnj bullion between New York aad Philadelphia, which be eatl mated at about three hundred thouaand dollara annually ?more than enough to buy a let and ereot a building aad maobanery in New Yotk, and, in conclualon, aummed up argument# in favor ot the eetabllahment of a mint in New York. Mr Thommow, (dem.) of Peanaylvaaia, apoke ia fa vor of Mr. Cbaadler'a amendment? repeating that all bullion for coinage could be brought from New York to Philadelphia tor oolnage, aad aent back, for fltteea thouaand dollara per annum. Ha replied to Meeere. King and Pbooalx, aaying that it would bo the aheer eat tolly to bare aucb an eatabllaament at New York, and apoke or the large expenae which would attend it Three yeara would paaa before tbe mint and machine ry oonld be erected there, and by that time tba Cali fornia gold mlnea would be dry. Mr Bayly, (dem) of Virginia, regretted that thla queatlon had been brought down to a aciamble between New York and Pennaylvania, aa to wbioh would get the public patronage connected with It. He had no doubt that th? membera item thoae tit a tea would vote wlih an axolualve view to tkia (ue?tlon but ha hoped that auch weuld not be the caae with membera from other quarter*. He oppeaed the bill on the groaad that the national debt ia now eighty millloaa, aad wo have laid the foundation tcr ninety millloaa, aad ho aaked the Houao whether there waa auch preealng ae ceaalty lor a mint In New York aa wairanted the pas aage cf thia bill. Mr. Cahi.e, (dem.) of Ohio, offered aa amendment, to come in at the end of the ttrat aection. thin : '-Pro vided one. fourth ot the aggregate eolnage aOtll be In ?:old dollara. one- fourth la quarter eaglet., oae fourth n halt eaglea, one eighth in eaglea, and ana eighth in double eaglea. '* Ha aald that the acoundreliam of the Philadelphia mint, at tbia tima. waa very proverbial. (Laughter) You will And that during the lait year more than twenty three mlliiona have been coined la double eaglea; ateut two milliona alx hundred thou aand in eaglea, and tbe remainder, a million and a half, in rmaller ooln. Tbia object waa very clear. It waa to draw gold away from circulation among tbe people It waa tbe plan of bankera, jobbera, and a pe culator*. that they may not have competition with their ?hln plaatera. Tbe achema waa to plunder. Mr Cable'a amendment waa deolared adopted. Mr Van Dyke'a amendment, aubatitutlng Jeraay City for New York, wai negatived Mr. IL>lmk? offered an amendment, to establish a mint at Cbarleaton. Declare! out of order. Mr. Reooaa. (whig) ol New York, offered a pio/orn* amendment, to enable him to aay that New Yorg aaked tor a mint, not for her own benedt. but becauae the oooatitution and the government undertake to re gulate the oolnage of the bullion whloh come* into New York If you make the gold dutt aad bullion a legal tender. It would not be neceerary to have a mint In New York It waa a duty of government la exercis ing power ever private property, to exerciae it for the benefit of commerce The government hai no right to tak* our property, aad make ua tranafer it to I'hila delphia, thereby Incurring heavy expeaaee, laatead of pre tiding for ua a meana of coinage in tbe great mart of commeice It waa tbe duty ot the government, when exercirlog the power, to ao ao with a view to the meat convenient plaae fw coinage, and the greateet good to tbe grrateek number. The argameot of the gentleman from Penney l? ante. (Mr. Cbaadier ) if It abowed anything, abowed that, iuatead ot takiag tbe gold bullion to I'hiiadelphia to be coiaed the bricka, morter and machinery rb'.uld be transported to New Yoik Let ua alone, and we will let you alone. Re ceive our gold duat and bullion in payment of oar debt* aud we do not want an extraraganl building in New York tor a mint much lew* for one with aplendid colonnade*. fit tor the moaea to dwell In W? want no thing but a plain building, with machinery to coin Mr Thhablc, (dem ) of N.

There waa no difficulty in getting money from Philao Ipbia to New i otk. aad the delay et half a day waa a matter of amall importance. The committee then roee. and the llouae adjourned.

Left aigbt, Reuben Dunbar, the prieoaer, wes guarded by two persona, who were left ail night la hi* cell. During the evening he wrote end left letters di rected to hU wife end brother. He oompoied him self to reet et ebout the uiael hour, end slept better then he did for several nights pest. He awoke this morniag et bb eeriy hoar, end et the asuel tins partook. with his accustomed relish, of e hearty meal. Before Bay compeay wes admitted to his oell, some one seat him e oopy of his confession, with ell the pictures of his execution, whieb considerably ex cited end disturbed his mind, lie expressed dlssetls lection et the appearance ef the wood outs, which he '?re off ead put into the etore. At length he beoene ?ore oelxn, end begaa to prepare bis mind for the final scene. At b little after nine o'clock, the clergymen who hes attended him. accompanied by several of the oity slergy. visited his oel. At three-quarters peat tea o'olock, hs prepared and Ar eased himself for eaeeution. As soon as be wee reedy, the Rev. Mr. Rewsoa reed to hla the flfty-ftrat Psiam, and all present uaitsd, while the Rer. Mr. Meaerd led ia devotion. His prayer wee most earnest, Bad ilagularly appropriate for the ?ircumsteaoes of the prisoner. The prisoner wept muoh during Its delivery. At tweaty mlautes before elevea o'olock. word wes breaght te him from the sheriff, thet the execution would take piece at half pest eleven o'clock. This seemed to affeet his miad somewhat, but bis flrmaees continued to sustain him. Whea asked If he did aot find it more difficult to meet the final |seeue tbaa he supposed, he made bb effort to calm his agitated feel ings, end answered ia the negative. At a little after 11 o'cleck he expressed a wish to engage in prayer on hl.i own behall, wbioh he did. His prayer was simple in language He (expressed bis entire submission to the scntenoe of the law, and ask ed that If he had Inadvertently kept back anything from bis spiritual adviser, it might then be made known to him, that be might there reveal It He prayed lor his wile, and that his own great sinfulness might meet with forgircness. He said he freely for gave all men. The officer came to his cell at precisely half past 11 o'clock. His maaacles having previously been knock el off, his arms were pinioned; and leaning on the arm of the Kev. Mr. Beecher, supported by ona ef the deputies en the other, at 2b minntes before 1) he as cended the stairs into the third story of the prison with a firm step. The persons who were allowed to witness the executioa were already assembled. HIS LAST WORDS. After a moment's delay, the sheriff intimated to Mr. Beecher that the prisoner was at liberty to speak, if he had aught to say. Ths fact was communioated. ?fid Dunbar addressed these present substantially as follows ? My dear friends, I feel my situation Is an aeful one; I teel that I committed a great crime, and that my seateace Is just, but I hops that my sins are for given, through the atonement of Christ, that my feet stand upon the Rock of Ages. My friends I desire to s:?y a few words before 1 lea\e this world, let m? exhort you to bsware how you yield to temptation, and remember to look to Him who has promised to give his grace, and assist those who are tempted I hope that when wears all done with tbl* world, we e ball meet in a better Ob,0od! Into thy hands I commit my spirit THE EXECUTION. The rope was then adjusted about his neck th > cio was drawn ever his head aud in a moment, with a sudden jerk, his body a as drawn upvard towsrls the ceiling Ills n?ck was Instantly broken, and there was net the slightest apparent convulsion of h>s frame.

TUB TARIFF ORADI ATION OF DIPLOMATIC SALARIES ? IjKATU OF MR. KAVFMAN, OF TKXAS, KTC. Waihiiutox, Jan. 31, 1851. The Branch Mint bill looks a little smokey. but there is still hope for Its passage. There is some danger that , the amendments, reported to the Cheap Postage bill In the Senate, will defeat that measure by delay. Mr. Hunter, In addition to the bill tor appointing four General Appraisers, has given notice of another, to amend the warehousing law. If either of those bills go to the House, there is a prospect of something for the tariff people. Lobby members still hold on. Aocording to Mr Foote's resolution, we have reason to believe that Mr. Webster has apian to submit for the graduation of diplomatic Kalarles. aocording to the expenses ot ministers, somewhat alter the British system Al present, no poor man can accept the mis sion to Bngiand or France We understand Mr. Rives has addressed a letter to Mr Webster on the subject. The Spanish Minister is said to he at the bottom ot the resolution in relation to the A misted negroes.i 1 regret to lay that Mr. Kaufman, member from Texas died this evening, ot disease ot the heart. He left the house at two o'clock, apparently in robust health. He was a young man of tine promise for a long life, and high advancement. His death was a most unexpected event. The Natioaal Hall is to be converted into a theatre and Miss Davenport opens the reason next Monday. PrnsiylTSula Legislature. Iliaaisarao, Jan. 31, 1961 In tbs Senate, nothing of Interest doing.
