With tho exception ol the opening speech ol Mr. Cambrelong, tho dobote in commit tco of tho whole thus far, has been carried on among tho southern members. Tho Bpecch of Mr. Prentiss, of Miss, is spoken of aa a vory able and convincing effort and unanswerable argument in reply to Mr Pickens, of S. 0. Our latost intolligonco from Washington ns to tho fate of tho Bill leaves tho Question extremely doubttui Tho Administration membors aro confident of their ability to carry tho Bill. And, per contra tho opposition arc oqually Banguino that thoy can defoat it, No voto has yet boon takon in committee. Tho Woshington correspondent of the N, Y. Courier and Enquiror, under dato 24th inst. says. Tho Sub-Treasury Bill was debated last night until after 9 o'clock It would not surpriso me, ir they were to min in nnssion to.morrow night, until Iho same hour, as thoro scorns to bo a set tied determination to get tho final question on or beforo Wednesday tho 27tli. Tho enterprise is ono of a public nature, and resting as it does principally upon indi viduals who aro by no moans tho most oblo to bear its burdens, wo cannot doubt that our citizens generally will avail thmsolves of llio present opportunity w uiuunuai, mu gool will. Of tho porformanco, tho name of Mr. Kendall in connection with it, is a sufficient guaranty. A company of U. 3. soldiers passed through tho lake, tho present week, on their way to Swanton.

After some reports and resolutions were presented, tho bill authorizing a Joint Commission to explore and run iho north eastern boundary of the United States, was taken up. Mr. CLAY, of Kentucky, having ex pressed the gratification which he felt, at tne unanimity mat parvaueu me ouuaiu, in a desira to prcservo iho peace of tne country, added, that ho had apprehensions, that at some day, not very distant, a con test might arise out of this question. This consideration imposed upon tho Govern ernments of Great Britain and tho United States a grovo duty, and ono that should bo discreetly performed. After somo general remarks, ho said, that at Ghent, the claims of the Stato of Maine, as now contended for, were tacitly if not expressly admitted to be well founded. On tho 19th of August, 1814, tho British Commissioners proposed, that "cession" ot that portion of Maine which interrupted their communication with tho other prov inces, should be mado to Great Britain. Tho territory which they wished to have "ceded" to them is tho identical territory in dispute. To this application the Atuer. ican Commissioners replied that they pos sessed no authority to cede any part of the old thirteen Stales. The British Commis sionnrs indicated that they were willing to grant an equivalent. Mr. Clay said that at that time no pro test was urged, that it was impracticable to run this line. On the contrary, the 5th Article of the treaty of Ghent is in the language of the treaty of 1783. No sug gestion was made, that there was or would bo a difficulty in finding tho high lands which divide tho waters that run into the St. Lawrence from those which run into the Atlantic. Tho title, said Mr. Clay, to tho disputed territory is clear tho right incrniesiioe;uuu tto aagmn BUI, contrnsla with tlloir former tardinesf). 01 Honor, uaying a contruvursy wim iiib neighbor about boundary, would assert in Court of Justice, such pretensions, on ucli a foundation, as tho British Govern ment sets up in this particular case.

He then recurrod to the long imous voto of both houses of Congress, and thus strengthen and support tho Executive at homo and abroad in a determination to nsacrt the nobis of tho country. Tho American people and tho pooplo nn tho other sido of tho water, should bo mado to understand tho causes as well as tho con sequences nf a war. If, said Mr. Clay wo aro. as I fear wo are, in tho neighbor hood of o war with Great Britain, it is our duty to present a truo statement of the caso, and let our citizens know and feel that wo have right on our side. Long may that direful day bo put off; and yet long ought not tho settlement of this question be put oil. The right is with us manifestly, clearly incontcstibly. Such a report as 1 have referred to, coming from an appropriate Committee, would presorvo peace, if any thing can nreservo peace. But if Great Britain perseveres in her pretensions, an compels us to assert our rights, I will n raoro hesitato now, than tny ancestors hesitated in Iho war cf Iho Revolution, o my cotemporories hesitated in our late war The debato was continued by Mr. Bu chanan and Mr Davis.until about 4 o'clock when tho bill was twico read, and referred to tho committco on foreign relations, with the understanding that it should4iot pass at this session ; but the commitleo should make a full, but pointed, strong, and con densed roport on the subject, in the nature of a manifesto, concluding with a resolution asserting our rights in regard to tho Terri tory in dispute, which will bo unanimously adopted by tho Senate. No Senator, it appears, has a doubt of tho equity and justice of our claim, and not ono is disposed to surrendor it, whatever may bo tho hazard of maintaining it. Washington, June 21, 1838. There in every indication that tho sub. Treasury debato will be a long one. There aro a great number of speeches ready to bo delivered. Tho question is upon tho motion of Mr. Garland, of Va. lo strike out rhc first sec tion of tho bill. Mr. G. I know expects to carry that motion. Mr. Cambrcleng, on tho other hand, is by no means sanguine of defeating it, Mr. Van Buren is moro confident than any ono I can hear of as to the passago of the sub-Treasury Bill. But, if tho Bill now beforo the House should pass, the Senate will strike out the specie clause its most important part. But wo shall soon see what will be done. Mr. Prentiss concluded a very animated harrangue upon tho subject to-day. Ho is a very ardent opponent of the whole scheme, as well he might bo. Ho thinks, as others do, that its mischievous effects will be felt in the Southern agricultural districts as sensibly as any where Mr. Huntor, of Virginia, followed, and will continue to morrow. Tho Senato bill to abolish imprisonment for debt was referred to the Committee on Judiciary. Tho Houso will tako it up out of order and pass it. The Senato was not engaged upon any business of public importance to-day, Mr. Nites made a speech against his instruc tions. Neither ho nor his colloaguo Mr. Smith hold themselves bound to obey tho instructions of a Whig Legislature. Tho timo of adjournment of Congiiess is now within tho reach of conjecture, at least, and may bo expected to tako place, wo think, about Monday, tho 10th of July, (three weeks from Monday next.) There is, it is truo, much business yot requiring to be acted upon, and somo questions of real importance not yet oven touched. But when a majority of tho members of Con gress aro determined to go home, and have fixed upon a day for tho adjournment, they arc able to get through the unfinished bust noss with a celerity which marvollously We believe that they aro now generally disposed to torminato the session as soon as practi cable. Nat, Jnt. P. S. Tho 9th of July has been fixed ad. in tho leer. Tho patriot loader is said to bo aamuot Chandler. McLeod aud Samuel C. Frcy aro also said to bo leaders. Tho Telegraph adds, that "for tho last ten days the Canadian Refugees have boon returning by night in small parties, and wo havo understood thoir rendezvous to bo ot the Short Hills." On Thursday morning, 110 regulars and some volunteers, says the samo extra, woro ordered from Chippawa and Drum- monsvillo into that district, but as tho pa triots havo now commenced tho war, tho woods aro alivo with them, and tho regu lars will, probably, all be cut to pieces with in twenty-four hours. Wo differ altogether with tho Telograph in its conclusions, and cannot but think that all such euterorises as this latfer ono of tho reformers, aro tho height of folly and waywardness source, it gives indeed a most graphic pic turo of tho actual stato of things in Cana da, under tho mild and patornal administra tion of tho British government.
