Tlieir exhibited a slate of feeling any tiling but harmonious. Some wore for denouncing the bank; c-thors for nullifying it, and others for letting it alone. Sonic wero openly accused of being bought by the mnnslcr.nod others of being the purchased tools of the Kitchen Cabinet. The confusion and uproar were at limes almost deafening.

Mr. Davis oftlie Senate, for a onpy of the enrrospon deuce b-twecn nor G ivernmeot nnd that of Great Britnin in regard lo the Northern Boundary. ! cnu-i-ts nf letters hptvveon McssrF.LivinL'stnn MeLnnu and Forsyth, nn Iho part of our Government, and Sir Cliarlos R. Vanghon nnd Mr Cliarlcs Bank head on t lie pm of Groat Britain, com- tni'iicing na far back n-s July, IS33. The amount of lh whole bouiidaiy question is, that the subjuct is us far from being settled as over. To understand the cnrrivpnndcnco it is pnpor to remind our r'aders, Hint, at the close of the late administration, after long endeavors to ascertain Hie trim boundary line, ns lived by the Truaiy of 173, the two Governments ngn-cd to" refer the tie cisinti In the king of Holland, as arbitrator. That ninna'ch vvas rr-qitrM'wl In designate til" true liti". Now. as the negociators had never been able lo ascertain the boundary; iho king soon came to the conclusion that he should not he more successful; in short ralher than puzzle himself to find the old line, ho determined to drawn now one, and thus, liko most arbitrators, Im split the dif Terence; but as he had not been requested to mike a new line, but to ascertain the old one. in regard to which there wits lack of testimony, his decision was relnctnntly ac ceptcil by England, but it was lolollv ro joclcd by Ihe United Stales. Tins rejection wa CMiiimuntcaicd to Mr. iiankhcnil, tho IJritih Charge, by Mr Secretary Living ston, and in tho Fame nolo it was proposed to open a new negociation. As a reason for tho rejection by our Government, it was 6atd that the new lino trenched on tlin ter ritnry of Maine, and that iho Government oflliat State would controvert it as uncon stilutioiial. In regard to the latter difficul ty, Mr. Livingston aayf: " Means will probably bo found of avoid ing oil constitutional difficulties that have hitherto attended the establishment nf n boundary more convenient lo both parties, than that designated by the treaty, or than that recommended by fits majesty the king oftho Nelhcrlonds;" and he adds, "that an arrangement is now in progress, with every probability of a speedy conclusion, between the U. Sinlesand tho Stale of Maino, by which Ihu Government oftho U. Slates will bo clothed with mora ample powers than it has heretofore possessed, lo effect that end." Although Ihe rejection created some surprise and disappointment to Iho British Government, Mr Vatighan, the British en voy, in April following announced to Mr. Livingston that his Government was dis pined to renew the negotiation, provided it could ho dono in good faith, nnd with any hope of coming to a conclusion. At tho sometime, ho stated his Gnvernmeni would nnl recognize Iho right oftho citizens of Maine, nor of any other cuizuns of tho United States, to navigate tho St. John River, In reply, Mr Livingston waives, for tho present, claims to tho navigation oftho St. John. Ho proposes that the whole Fubject bo referred tonn equal number of Commis sioners, "with on umpire selected by some friendly sovereign, frntn among mo most skilful men in Europe, to ilecido on all points on which thoy riisogrec s or by a commission, entirely composed of such men, so selected, to bo attended in the stir, voy and view of Iho country by agents ap pointed by the parties." Mr Vanghan, replying tn this. May II, 1033, donbis the expediency of this mode, but poys he. hos sent tho proposol lo his Government ; ho also suggests to Mr. L. tho expediency of proposing somo olhnr mode, which would bo more likely to bo accnptoble lo the British Government. Tho British Envoy next intimates Iho opinion, that the time has arrived for aban doning tho imaginary boundary, which ha boon so imperfectly described, nnd nf run ning a new conventional line, which will be more convenient lo botli parties than the one hitherto insisted on, under Iho Treaty. To this, the American S jcrntary replies, that the President feels restricted, by the past action of tho Senate, to negotiate fur any nnv boundary line, tho effect of which would bo lo cut off any portion ol llie ter ritory of Maine, without first obtaining Iho ncqnicsccnco of tho Legislature of thai State to such proposed arrangement. The rest of tho voluminous; documents ore principally occupied in discussing va rious supposition touching the locnlion And nature of the "highlands" spoken of imthe Treaty of 1733 and whslher the rivors which empty into the Bay of Chalcur and Iho Biy of Pundy can bo considered1 as "falling into tho Atlantic." The American Government contends Ihat rivers emptying into, those Bays, fall into the Atlantic thro' tho Bays. The amount of it all goes to show that the whole negotiation is again open to settlement, and that the question remains as it did in 1823. After all it appears to us, that if both Governnirnts would appoint n commission of Civil Engineers tn go and survey Ihe country, and run the boundary line accord ing to equitable principles), and n? near to the contemplated original linn ns p'acttca ble, havinp- reiiect to Ihe cninmin use. by both nations, of such navigable river-" a- fall near tho boundary, it would bo Fotifac tory to both nations. As Matno demos the right of nur Government, without Iht r-n- sent, to negotiate away any portion of iln territory ol Maine, perhaps Hie mut-t sneedy mode of settlement would bn, for bulb na tions to authorize the Government of Maine and that of New Brunswick to orrong'1 the question nf boundary between themselves. They could then, perhaps, Folllu the qups linn to their own mutual satisfaction ; whatever would be satisfactory to Alalne, would doubtless be agreeable to the people ofllio United Stales, and whatever would bo agreeable lo New Urunwick. ought to bo satisfactory to th B itish Government. Tho matter has been in dispute more than forty years; (he parties have not made any approximation to a settlement, and unless some different course bo pursued, the con troversy bids fair to be interminable. Dot Ion Atlas. Foreign Paupers. Tho following res olulion was adopted in the Sonata, on the last day of the session : "Resolved, That tho Secretary of the Treasury be directed to cause lo bo collec ted and laid before the Senate at its next session, all such facts and information as con be obtained through the Custom-house or from other sources, respecting Ihe de portation of paupers from Great Britain nnd other places, ascertaining as nearly as possible to what countries such persons are font, where landed and what provision, if any, is made for llieir support. " The Baltimore Patriot thus justly re marks upon this subject : "This resolution was introduced by Mr. D vts. of Massachusetts, and tho liinnk of the country will bo rendered to him, if it shall lead to le"i-lalivo measures calcu lated to arrest iho tide nf that worse t linn useless population which has for so many years been scllinglowordsour shores.

Two thirds at least of lb" tenants of Ihe almshouses in all parlsof the country in the interior as well as on Iho seaboard, are forei!.'n"r.s and our jails and penitentiaries ore filled with thesame description of persons, (i is tune that the Government should lake decided steps to arrest this serious evil. It is I nne Ihat a jti-l discrimination should be iniru duccd between the worthy emigrants who come among us lo better their condition by improving our soil or ndding lo the median, ical force nnd ingenuity of the count ry, and the ofiVcouring of the parish workhouses of Europe, who nre sent here because the maintonenanco of them in idleness and crime has become a burden too serious to be borne. We have no doubt that the in quiry desired by Mr. Davis, if industriously anu properly mane, win result in too col lection nf statistics which will startle the country. Il will alarm all who would dread that the physical strength, as well bb the political institutions oftho country should bo in the hands of tho paupurs uf Europe. LATEST PROM THE SOUTH.

The garrisona of Fort Mackinaw nnd Gratiot have been ordered by Gen. Atkinson, to Fort How ard, (Green Bay) to report to Gen.

Green at Fort Winnebago, and Gen, Brooke at Fort Howard, it is believ ed the line from Mississippi to Lake Michi gan can be protected. Tho lino from the MissuFippi to Furl Leavenworth, is now guarded by only seven companies of Dragoons, under the orders of Col. Kearney, an officer of great vigil ance and cnlcprise. But we learn that the President has requested Gov. Dunklin lo raiso 1000 volunteers under the act of Congress recently passed, which authoriz es ihe President tn scnept the Ecrvices of ten thousand volunteers, in case of Indian hostility. The Governor will, no doubt, lake immediate measures to comply with this requisition md to organize tho mpn so as to bo ready in any emergency ; and Brig. Gen. Atkinson has been authorized to call upon the Governor for all or such part of iho volunteers ns he may think necessary to quell any disturbances that moy arise among our border Indians.

The fre quent disturbances and massacres commit ted on our seamen by the natives inhabiting the islands in those distant seas, make this measure tho dictate of humanity.
