Tho glorious triumph obtained by the Whigs of Rhode Island, in tho election of Messrs. Tillinghast and CnANSToN to represent that State in the next Congress, is one of the most brilliant victories for the Whig party recorded in our political history. Tho Wings of that Stato have covered themselves with unfading laurel". Thev have given an impulse to tho "ball nf revolution" uhchis now rolling over the country, that will invigorate the cause of the peopli; throughout the entire Union. It is by such results anil such alone that our rulers will he influenced to mclio rate their disastrous measures. The war upon the currency and business of the people cannot bo persisted in with tuch expressions nf public sentiment, a have jusl been forwarded to them from Rhode Island. Wo anticipate the best results from this great triumph, the particulars of winch will be found below, and we hope the bright example of Rhode Island will not be without its proper influence in other States.

Our readers must remember the system of persecution exercised by tho adtniiiistra lion towards tho Whig Senators who re tained their scats though opposed politically to Iho predominant parly in tho States which sent them. No vituperation was ton bitter to bo employed ogninst tlietn; and llie plan of "in-truciing" them was originated by Mr. Van Buren in order to enforce them to resign. For these inslruc Hum of the majority, tho administration men, who woum sineiu tiieir servintv nutlet n plausible pretence, have profe-ed the utmost reverence. 1 hey were willing to regard themselves as tho mere in-truments n dominant faction, nnd not ns the en lightened nnd patriotic legislators of their country, "tiieir whole country." We ex pressed our nbhorrenco nt the lime for the narrow and iiUrijjttoinir nnlicv. which in duced Mr. Van Buren to oriL'inati! this system of instructions. But now that the party havo adopted the creed, wu cerlainlv have a right to look for on evidence ol their sincerity. Will the Tory Senators from those Stales which the Whigs havo revolution izcd, resign, or will they continuo and mis represent the expressed will of n majority of their constituents? They have now nn opportunity of practically enforcing the doctrines, which I hey have so strenuously advocated. If they aro true to their pro fessionsif Iho wiil of a vast majority ol Iho people of the United States is respected they will resign either their place or their politics. No other alternative is loft tl:em if they would escupo from the infamy, which they would incur by the vio. olalio'n of their plodgcs. And nnloH they do perfidiously violate these pledges, the FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1837. Whigs will assuredly liavo a majority in the Senate, Indiana gives n majority of seventeen thousand against the administration but has one Van Buren Senator. Mr. Tipton. That gentleman, who has always boon in favor of tho doctrine of instruction, cannot, without giving the ho to his past opinions, consent to misrepresent "the democracy of numbers." Tennessee has given n settler to Mr. Grundy, which must effectually silence him in support of Van Buren. New Jersey, which is totally regenera ted, has one administration Senator, who has. however, by voting lor Mr. Granger as Vico President last winter, shown a disposition to act in conformity with the will of bi Slate. Ohio, Georgia and North Carolina will ho grossly misrepresented in the Senate, if tlmir Senators do not vote with the Whijis. Will the administration partv manifest such a gross inconsistency as to rccom mend the adhesion of these misrepresent ing Senators? Even the Globe cannot, wo believe. muler the audacity to counte nance such perfidy and targivorsation. Thpy must resign or go with tho Whigs, if thpy would not make tbeir names bye wordjj of falsehood and'fruplicity. is said that Messrs. Snvder ond Ma V. members of Congress from Illinois, will not. walk in the footsteps of the "Au thor of the Letter to Bhcrrod Williams." The Baltimore Republican thinks that it finds t.ccasion fur argument against the Whigs, in an admission that the Whirj succeed best in electing United State olli cers in time of public dislrcss. When does the surgeon, think ynti, gain credit ? Certainly not when every body's limbs are whole. When docs the physician gain credit? Certainly nut when there is no evidence of disease.

I lie patient, gets well under his attention, but enon resorts to his old habits, and a relapse renders necessary another visit and then may occur another cause for re joicing. But the lear is, thai the system will not sustain such disregard of all pre ventives. such striking neglect of all good principles. U. S, Gnz.

Mr. Hubbard moved such nn amendment of the rules of the Senate as would provide for the election of standm? committee en Patents and the Patent Office, and asked for its considera tion at this time. Mr. Clay expressed a wish that tho mo lion should lie on the table, as u-nal, till to morrow. No man, ho said, had come with greater reluctance than he. to attend this special meeting of Congress; lint, as Congress was now assembled, to tnke into consideration the embarrassed condition of the country, he would be still mnro reluc tant to return homo nil lie should seo somo broad, comprehensive, and effectual relief provided for the embarrassments of the country. But he wished to ask what was the do sign of nppointitig all ilia general commit tees at this session, if its proceedings were to be limited, as the President's messago had intimated, to the special subject for which Congress was assembled. If there was nothm'T to be done on iheso general subjects, what could bo iho me nf appoint ing committees to conider them?

Mr. Hubbard said ho regretted as much at the Senator could do, j hat thero was any cauo lor their coining together at tin time. But Congress had assembled, and tho iwo Houses were organized; nnd ho deemed it iheir imperative duly to appoint their standing committees at the con nionccineul of tho session.

In the course of some general discussion, Mr. Wise, nf Virginia, said his mind had been brought to the conclusion that the great evil under which tho country suffer ed was the corrupt, bribed nnd pensioned press. But for Executive influence, the separation which the gentleman Iroui Soul !i Carolina proposed would long ago have ta ken place. Congress, under influence el" the government, nnd the executive givern. ment itself, had established and sustained a pensioned pres.1? at this place; and until that was removed, it was in vain that to labored hero.

Tho House haying resumed the subject which was depending on yesterday's ad journment. Mr. ROBERTSON moved to amend the pending resolution of Mr. Boon, which proposed to conduct the election of a pub lic printer viva voce, by striking out all after the word resolved, and substituting two propositions: 1st. That the public printing ought to be separated, as far ns practicable, from all connexion with tho political press. 2d. That the Clerk bo authorized to divide it among the different prinlingestablislimenis in Washington, not exceeding four, subject to the existing rules as to prices. lie supported the mo tion by a few remarks, expres-ive of his desire to save tho time ol the House, and avoid n protracted struggle. Mr. GARLAND, of Virginia, absenting in the nb-sirncl to the propriety of the first proposition, declared, nevertheless, his con viction of lis tutor impraciicahihtv, and hn determination to volo againU it' nn that ground. To the measure of dividing nnd distributing thp work, he has wholly oppo.s. ed. The House must either elect n prm ter, or appoint an sgent. He avowed himself as one of tho little band who had voted for Mr. Allen; disclaimed nil per sonal hostility (o th Editors of the Globe, but said ho wa pledged to principle-- mi which that paper was nlodged to make war: and cn that ground ho must vote ngniust them. For Gales &. Seoion he could not vote under any circumstances. And if, in voting ns he did, ho should hereafter dis cover bo had been voting for a wolf in -hcep'-i clothing, when he found it out. he should alter Ins course. Bin the wra'h of no man, or set of men. should ever drive him from his principles. His party had been called Cun-er vatives, and he did not object to the name. His colleague (Mr. Wisr.) had said they were marked, as so many fatted calves lor the slaughter. He hoped it was not so. But como what might, ho was not to be driven from his ground. All he sought was the approba lion of hi own enn.-cience. Mr. WISK explained. Mr Garland resumed nid bo had sought nn controversy with any political friend; if it came, it must be forced on him by other's.
