The Mpdison Banner of llio 3d imiant siys the election pissed off in that region with less excite ment than has been witnessed perhapd for many years, "During the hole canvass," says that paper, "there was little or no ag itation, very little active electioneering by the candidates, no stump speocbes.-and n efforts to muko local considerations the test." The Banner stales that Messrs. Marshall, Stapp, and Chambers arc elected lo the legislature from that county, and Mr E. F Pcabody is elected fur Jenning county. The Louisville Journal of the 4th fays the accounts from two or three of the near est counties of Indiana, "are of the most cheering character-1' In Floyd county the Whig ticket for the legislature had suc ceeded by a large majority; and Clark counly, which heretofore always gave a majority of 400 for the administration, has now elected two whig reprcsentalives.

Tennessee.-- The President is election eering in Tennessee ; but he finds that tho word ol Ctu-ar can no longer stand against the world. The Tenncrsceans say that they can elect their own Chief Magistrate without either the aid ot'a Iluckor Caucus or of a Presidential dictation. Dinners in honor of Judge White and Mr Hell have been tendered throughout (lie Stale. It is quite melancholy to see Gen. Jackson rav ing against his old friends with all tho im becility of dotage and the fatuity of passion. He can never regain the influence, ho once wielded in Tennessee. 1 1 is own Slate has completely deserted him, and with all his electioneering efforts he cannot hand her over to his favorite successor.

This gentleman was, not long ago, mid so were his constituents, favorable lo Van Huron. He voted for the United Slates Rank, which subjected him to llio denunciations of the Globe ami the pen sioned press throughout the Slate, and a strong effort has been made by them, to injure his popularity.

'iVie JWnunttiin and the Ray Slates. A correspondent of thcRo.-ton Alias, speak ing of the political aspect of the country, thus alludes to the significant posture of Vermont and Massachusetts at the present moment. ' J lie reflection is consoling lo tho friend? of rrpial rights here in moral and sober New England, that while every state m llio Union snve lliree, has at some lime or oilier yielded to tlic influence of the General Government, during tho reign of ivmg Aiiurcw, 1110 biaic 111 wlncli was the "Cradle ol Liberty," and also Ihe Slate made renowned by tbe glorious "battle of Ueniiington," llio two best la-ming States 111 New England tiro two of those three yet iinconquored provinces of King An ilreu-'o dominions.

Important rnoM Mexico and Tnx.vs Tho march of ihe new expedition against Texas has been suspended and il issuppos ed no further operations will be undertaken till lull. In the mean tune llic leaven ol revolution is at work in Mexico, and the result will bo the abolition of tho Central system ol government introduced by Santa Alia, anu 1110 re csiaolisluncnt ol the U011 Hitutioii of 1031, fur which the Texans were, at Ihe outset, professedly contending. Indeed, it is t-tati'd that tho Central or Santa Ana party were already down ; that tlic r euerai party wore every where sue cccdiug, with little hloodthcd, and indispo sed lo projocuto the Texan war. A forced loan of two mill urns has been declared in ihe city of of Mexico, against which tho English and rrench ministers have protcs led, calling on foreigners not to contribute.

The municipal bill having been defeated by the Lords on Ihe 30th Juno, a stormy debate ensued in the lower Ilnuse, in the course of which Dan expressed his indignation in no measured terms.

The iustorv ok Tun constitu rn To every Ameriean reader, not only to cv cry statesman and politician, but to every freeman capable of rightly estimating llio institutions under which we live, no forth coming work can bo of greater interest than the only authentic History of tho Con stitution of the United States, from the lu cid pen of Jamhs Mabison, the first (or one of the first) of its groat founders and archi tccts. Of the value of such a work no one could bo a bolter judgo than Mr Madison himself, and he has in bis Will, providing for its publication, homo tho most emphatic testimony on the subject, whilst directing the avails of the publication to bo applied to purposes wholly disinterested, humane and literary.

Tho fiillnwintr statement presents an in teresting view of the operation oftbo West India commercial arrangement maoo uy Mr McLane under Mr Van Huron's instrtie lions. Il mav not no irrelevant in ino suu- ject lo recapitulate noma of the-circumstan ces COlllieCieU null una nun-m-nuu, utterly disgraceful to llio administration uy which il w"as effected, and so disadvanta geous to tho country nt largo. It wa9 long llio pobcv of llio United Stales to establish, in her co'mmcrcial relations with foreign States, Ihe principle of entire reciprocity. To this end, wc have offered by our acts of Congress, that, if any nation will admit our vessels into her ports without discrim inating fl lit ics. wo will, lorlliwilli, numil her vessels upon tho liko term". Several nations have acceded lo this offer, and the principle has been incorporated into several treaties Enclsnd refused to agree to terms en equal, until, in the year 1015. sho was for ced to adopt I bom; Mr. Huskinson, licr minister, observing, that, "after a long struggle to counteract tho navigation sys tem of America, without, in any degree, relaxing our own, Great Britain found it necessary lo adopt the system of reciproci ty." Rut she expressly excepted her West India Islands from the operation of this principle; long varying her contrivances, with the sole view of keeping the trade in the hands of Hritish ship owners. Many fruitless attempts at negooialion were made. In 1017, the British wished to give tho trade a circuitous direction, through their northern provinces or the island of Bermuda, in Rritish bottoms, to the exclusion of American vessels. To accomplish this, they at first proposed to reserve lo themselves, the right to vary llicir imposts, upon our prnduclimt. nl pleasure, in different colonies ; eo that tho same articles might bo made to pay a higher rate ol duty when transported directly in American bottoms than when circuitously in British. This was firmly resisted, and the Rritish, in (ho negotiations of 1010, expressly and unqualifiedly abandoned it. It was relinquished too, by the actsol Tar liamenl ofl!l22and 1025, anil never renew ed until the ncsocialions of Jlr McLane in 1030. Tho consequences, the suspension of the direct trade between the United States and the Rritiih colonies, wore infinitely more injurious to the Rritish commerce than to ours. iNoitiier the exports, navigation, nor revenue of tho United Stales suffered dimi nution. The evil effects of the suspension became known to tbe ministers who declar ed their conviction that the interdict had been injurious to tho colonics, without be ing useful lo the rest of llio empire. In tins slntn 0, the cao, the administra tion of Mr Adams came to a close, and Gen, Jackson came into office. During thepresidential canvass, t lie condition of our commerce with the Rritish colonial ports, became a favorite (homo of electioneering rhetoric, and Mr Adams's administration tion was falsely accused of having Inst the lycsl India trade ; whereas they had only resisted the domineering encroachments and the unequal proposals of Great Rritain. Tho Government of llio United Slates was declared by Mr Van Ruro:i, in his instruc tions lo Mr McLmc. "to have been in the wrong, in too long and ton tenaciously resist ing tho right of Great Rritain lo impose duties in her own colonies, and in omitting to accept .o. terms offered by tho act of parliament of 1025. Vou will therefore," continues Mr Van Buron, in a spirit which should call up the blush and indignant scorn of every American check, "you will there fore see the propriety of possessing your solf fully of all tho explanatory and miti'ga ting circumstances connected with these causes, that you may bo able to obviate as far as practicable, the unfavorable impres sion winch they have produced." Oui upon llic ignominious traitor to his ountry's Honor anu interest ! After slating the condition of tho trade, and greatly exaggerating the disadvantages of its operation on tho interests of the U. States, Mr Van Ruren proceeds, "It is the anxious wish of llio President to put on cud to a stale ol things so injurious lo all par ties. He is willing (o regulate the trade in question upon terms of reciprocal ndvan lage, and lo adopt for that purpose, those which Great Britain has herself elected, and which are prescribed by act of Parlia ment of 5lh July 1035." To complete ibis picture of meanness, sycophancy, and duplicity, on the part of Van Hurtn, wo need only refer to Ins well known allusion in our party disscntion? to his representation that the conduct of of the former Government of the United States was the act of a parly, which the nation had judged and condemned, and his reference to Gen. Jackson's administration as another party.ncoiYite to Great Rritain. "To set up the acts of the late administra lion," said Mr Van Ruren, "as Ihe cause of forfeiture of pnivir.KGF.s, which teould oth erwise be extended to the rr.oer.r. of the Uniltd Stales, would, under txUling cir rwnHances, be unjust in itself, and could not fait to excite their deepest sensioilitv " Hero a lunctionary or a great and inde pendent nation places himself in the atti tude of a suppliant before Great Rritain for privileges to bo extended lo the people of the United Stales beseeching her to lake into consideration the mitigating cir cumstances of the case and not to excite the deepest sensibilities of the poor people of llio United States, by refusing tbe priv ileges for which they sue. In the whole history of diplomacy, wo know of nothing so abhorrent to a nation's dignity as Ibis. Such language should stamp llio author with indelible infamy, Rut is it not fully characteristic of the ser vile and truckling spirit of the man, who considers it sufficient glury to serve tinder such a chief as Andrew Jackson ? What high minded American wuuld not spurn the idea of employing such language to wards our hereditary foe deprecating her "unfavorable impressions," and humbly en treating her good will? Rut what has been the effect of Mr. Van Huron's arrangement with Great Britain .' The effect is rendered but too apparent by tho report of Mr. McLane, in March 1032, upon tho call of the Senate; from which it is demonstrable, that durinrr llic year 1031, ihero wetc in the intercourse of this country with the British, Swcodish and Danish islands, and the northern provinces entries of 150,770 tons ofAmorican ship ping, and 110,099 of foreign, (nearly all British ;) anil of departures, 100,13-1 A mcrican tons and 110,000 of Rritish or for eign. In the preceding year, 1030, before the arrangement of Mr Van Burcn, tho A morican tonnage, in the samo trade, was, of entries 204,-110, and of foreign, but 5,042; of departures.

The assemblage was then addressed by nur worthy Mayor, who urged upon them tho propriety and necessity of their dispersin and going homo, which they accordigly did The town has been quiet and orderly ever since.

It is a Mihjoct of general surprise and felicitation amongour citizens, that so largo a inub, alter becoming excited, and afier having one oi ineir number severely shut did not commit more violence and p'rnceed to greater extremes than Ihoy did. Inde pendently ol l he strong and univorsal op position that nur citizens have to mobs of all kinds, and the great mortification and regret entertained thai one should hav occurred among us, few seem lo feel dis satisfied with the result, or the slightest sympathy for llio sufferers.

Two female slaves were hunied from the Supremo Court room in Boston Inst week. It seems that the slaves arrived in Boston f.-nni Raltimoro in the scbr. uhiekaa w. Rjing missed by their owner, an agent was si-nt on lo arrest them, and on tin scbr arriving, the agent requested the ivaptam to keep them on board until he could in-niulo a process to recovr them. An officer was sent on board with n writ for their discharge, and they were taken to the Court Room on Monday.

When about a mile nnd a half oast of tho former city, one of the passengers silting upon the box with the driver, discovered tbat Ihe stage was out of tho road and on tho top ofan embankment, several feet in height and nf considerable width ; designed as a protection from an abyss of over one hundred lect which yawned below. After tho passengers had left the stnge, and tho driver liau backed it a lillle farther, the hindwhecls ran off the bank, the king bolt came out, and the body of the coach wa9 precipitated down the bank and rocks about 120 or 130 feet, and literally dashed to pieces on the dry rock by the side of tho water.
