'I mm tpmisaa CON GUESS. SATtmtlAY, Poll. 15. Tliv Freurli spoliations bill was railed mi by Mr Amber but dofcrrcil at the rcnticst of Mr MrDufh. Tim correspondent of the Jour, of own., cays it will nnt got Ml votes in the House ml assigns: -ns a reason no past objections totlio bill, but that as the Whiff", w licit they had the power did not pass tho bill, tlio Locos will not now. Mr Rives then addressed thn Senate In impo titmn to the Animation uf Texas, by concur- rent resolution. The Army appropriation bill was before the House. Monday, Pi'b. 17. An act pifed the Senate unking appropria. tioim for N ival Pension in lflll). Also, for tho support of the Military Acad emy. The French Spoliations bill prior tn 1800 wn called lip, and opposed by Air Mr Duffle, until tho Senate took up llin Texas resolutions, which were supplied by Mr Woodbury. In the 1 louse, the bill In restrict and grant pensions in certain rases wns passed. Also, the resolution for the distribution nfcer. tain copies of Iho Narrative of the Uplurnig Kxpethlinn. The House refused tn take up the bill to compromise with the sureties ol the late Collec tor Swartwnitt. The House then took up iho bill to rogiili'c the Ar.ny piy. Mr Ad tins look orra-ion lo al lude to the present posture of the Oreoim ques tion, and tn Ihc possible rnnsoipicncrs of the bill on that subject which Ins pissed the llnuc. tdinitld it ripen into a law. The direct effect of stlrh, a law, he said, would be lo bring us into collision with (treat linlain, and to rinse jtl-t apprehension of nur bein iillimitcly involved Ihereby in a war with that power. Alludins to a rumor which had reached him nf the purpose of the Administration in Iho ex cut of the p.waitn of tho Oregon lull, to propose to ndd at oure livo rpoiments of infantry lo the present Military KsLiblishment, Mr 1. intimated tint however npeps-nry or proper sucli a meas ure might lis in such a contingency, it w is no. thing in comparison to tho extent of Military preparation which it might become necessary lo make in rmvcqnenco of tho rah and inrimsidc ralo anion in regard to the Oregon question which tho House of KssrcseiiUtives had on lis part already countenanced, Tuxsdav, Feb. 19. The Senate, In-day, was occupied in the con. sideralion of iho joint resolution from the House for admitting tin1 Slate of Texas into the Union. Mr Choatn occupied the floor the entire diy, except thn morning hour, in opposition to it.--The amount of his argument u.i. tin' the reso. lotion was iinrnu-titiitional, as would be any proposition on Ihc ptrt of Congress fur the ad. mission nf a foreign Slate. He went farther than .Mr Mnrehead or Mr Rives, inasmuch ns he denied even the pnvor of admitting Tons by treaty, or any oilier independent country ; mint taining that the only extent to which the treaty, making power could go, was by iuit.licalion lo tho acquisition by negotiation of portions of ter ritory belonging to a foreign power, but neces sary for our bonier safely. Tho power of ad mitting a foreign independent country, he hold belonged solely and exclusively to Ihc rei-ervod sovereign power nl the people in their primary assemblies. Mr Henderson next obtained the floor, and then the Senate adj lurned. The House, at an early hour, went into Com. I iiltoe of the Whole on ihe slate of the Union, and took up tho bill making appropriations for the purrhiso of furniture for the I'ie.siilont' house ; and after tome time spent in discuss-on, Ihe bill was rej"cted yeas (Y2, nays 70. The House then resolved its-ell" into a Ciiuiiuiltcp of the Whole nn Ihe stale of the Union, (Mr Saun. dors, of North Caroliua, in the chair,) and tool; up the bill unking appropriations for the civil and diplomatic expenses of Iho gmernmenl for the fiscal year ending the SOlli June, IS 10, ihe dis tus.-ion's oti the amendments to which occu pied the remainder uf the d iv. .. WrpvnyAV, Feb. 10. In the Senate to-day, Mr Henderson, of Mis. sissipni, mole a very able argument in favor of the peudirg resolutions for the annexation of Texas, lie answered and turned upon Mr Rives and Mr Choatn their argument that Gnu. verneur .Uorris was the member of the conven tion who moved Ihe exclusion of the restriction, as originally proposed, that new Slates should only be admitted out of territory within the lim. its of the Union. Thoo gentlemen showed that (louvrrnoiir Morns was hostile tothe We-t, aod therefore argued that ho must be in favor of restrictions no the admission of new Stales. Mr Henderson showed Ihat Oouvnrneur Morris not only moved the restriction of the above re- j strinion, Inn tint no also moveu ine n-iuciinu oi the restriction which required the asi-cut nflwn thirds nf ihe Stales lo the adiirssiun of a now Slates. The motive of (iouve.-iienr Morris was ( tn admit new Stales out of Canada and Nova Scotia and N';w Hrunswirk, as provided for tin. ilertho old confederation, so as to enable the eastern States ultimately to outnumber the western States. Mr Harrow, of Louisiana, next took Ihc floor, and undo an argument againM the joint resolution, in untuning that its passage would he an infraction of the constitution, lie denied totally Ihat it was ever contemplated by tho f -amer of that instrument that a new Stale (the territory being foreign) could bo admitted into tlu Union by Congress, though he acknowl edged, in opposition lo.Mr Choalo of yesterday, that new Stales can be thus admitted at any time, p-nvided the territory bo previously ac. quired by tlio goiernment. I lo insisted that the only way Texas could be possibly annexed would be through tho instrumentality of the treaty making power. Aside from constitutional ob jections to the measure, ho look tho broad gound Ihat tho arquijitiou of Iho territory of Texas, and its admission as a State into the federal LTiii -vn, would bo as destructive to Ihe co'lnn and sugar interests of Louisiana as il her fair field were devastated by Hoods and inserts ; ami hence he was opposed tn her admission on Ihe grounds of expediency. Ho denied that the people decided in favor of this measure in Ihe late presidential contest, as had been contended for by some of those u ho spoke on Iho demo cratic side. He denounced tho doctrine iticul cated by such an argument as m"st monstrous, and which no btatesinan or senator should ad lance ; thai is, that they ought tnjet upon this particular subject, because tho people had deci ded upon it ; and if this doctrine obtained, it would overthrow all law and all gnvcriincnt. lie however averred that hn did not say this be cause ho did not respect the peop'e. After he conclud'-d, Mr Colquitt obtained the floor, and will address tho Senato upon this subject to. morrow. The Senate will meet to-morrow at 10 o'clock. In the House, Mr Sliilell moved a reconside ration of the vote taken yesterday on rejecting the bill appropriating 8-0.000 for furnishing thn President' House and $3,000 for improving Ihe grounds; and after a tiight discussion, tho re. consideration was ordered yeas 47, nays 100. After some lurther discussion and some inelTuc. tual alleinpts at amendment, tho question was again taken on tin) passage of the bill, and it was again rejected by a volo of ye is 7."), nays 77. Tho House tl.ou, on motion of Mr McKay, resolved itself Into a Committee of iho Whole on Ihe slato of the Union, (Mr. Saunders, of North Carolina, in the chair,) and resumed tho consideration of the civil and diplomatic appro priation bill, which occupied tho remainder of the day. One of the amendments adopted was an appropriation of $11,000 for furnishing the resident's House, and $0,000 for improving the grounds. Tiiuksdav, Feb. 10. Tho bill In nroviilo for the na vmont of 'claims I he lull to proline tor llie paymoi l ol clai ns Amaf i-,n . iTund fnr 1- rpnr-lt nnnl a Inns nrm, of American cilizens for French spoliations prior In 141HI, was discussed in tlio .Senate. Mr, ChoatP, mentioned that the bill did nnt pro vide for tho payment in full of any but Iho on. ginal claims. The assignees were to reccivo only the amount which Ihpy had paid as the i'iriidfraliuii for Ihe claims. The subiect was iinslnonpd. Mr llnntmi will debate it. Ontr.oN The President has Informed the Senate that ho deems (I Incompalablo wilh the public Interest to comply with llioir request by communicating tho instructions given to the American Minister In London on Iho subject of Oregon. Ho says, however, that ho is happy tn inform the Senate thattho subject is still un der amirablo negotiation between the two povv era. This satisfactorily disproves tho rumour, which gamed general rrcdit, that the negotia tion between this Government and that nfGrcat llrilain on Ihe Oregon question had been broken olT. An important message rolativo to tho Slave Trade and Its extensive support from Ornish and American citizens, was received and read, and ordered In bo printed, Tlio Texas resolutions were then debated. I ho finite wns engaged on the Civil nnd Di plonnlic Dill. Tho Commitleo on Expendi tures in tho I'nst Office Department wore or dered to send for persons and papers. It is al leged that the Post Master General has been making an improper lite of the public money. FmnAV, Feb. 21. The Semite,, was occupied in discus sing the joint resolution from tho House for ad mitting Texas as a Stale into tho Union. Mr. Simmons finished his argument In opposition to Ihe resolution, replying at some length to the argument of Mr. Colqutlt of yesterday, Ihat Congress could, through the nower admu'lod In itio ronslitution, grant lo the State of Louisiana mo right to enter into such a contract with Texas as might acquire that territory. Ho ad mit led that Congress could authorize Stales tn in ike rontracts wilh foreign governments, but not rontracts of that character, because such would amount to a foreign alliance, which was expres-ly inhibited by Iho constitution. Mr. Merrick next took tho llor, and supported the joint resolution. He was followed by Mr. Hunt. ington, in opposition lo Ihc resolution. Ho de nied the power in Congress lo admit a State, until the teiritory of winch it was formed was previously arquircd by treaty. In the House, a number of bills from the Sen ate were read a first and second time, and re ferred to approprialo committees. The House llicn resolved tntn.i Committee of the Whole on Iho St.itojof the Union Mr. Saunders, of N. Carolina, in Iho chair and resumed Iho rnnsid. eralion of the general appropriation bill. A number of amendments were adopted, among which was one miking appropriation for an out lit and salary for a minister plenipotentiary to Cbini. At hflf-pat four o'clock, the commit loo rose, and reported thn bill, xvilh the amend ments, to tho House; when the previous ques tinn was moved and seconded. Tho House then adjourned. ARRIVAL OF 'HIE HIDERNIA. Thu llibi'riiiii Steamship, C.ipl. Hewitt, arrived at Boston on the 19ih instant, from Liverpool, with accounts lo the 4lli insl. Tim news liy this arrival is extremely gratifying to all classes. Money was plenty, cotton was in good demand, business gener ally pretty brisk, and political affairs without excitement. Thu Quopii was to open Parliament in person on Tuesday the 4lli. In France, the usual discussions respect ing ilio answer to the King's speech had resulted in voles showing an incrcaso of strength for the Ministry. In Spain (lie only news of interest wns of the execution of Zurbano, the insurgent. In Ireland the agitation appears to bo dy ing away. Tlio rent is falling off, nnd Mr. O'Connell is not going lo Parliament. The post of Chief Secretary of Ireland having become vacant, Sir Thomas Free mantle lias been appointed to it. Mr. Gladstone lias retired from the Board of Trade, in cutisequencc of uisscnsions in thu Cabinet, relating to iho trcnly willi Bra zil. His Excellency Mr. Everelt, tlio Ameri can Minister, entertained Sir II. Peel and a distinguished parly at dinner, on the 31st till, at his mansion in Grosvenor place. The Queen and Prince Albert have paid visits to the Dukes of Wellington and Buck ingham, and were in good health. There is no news of ihc missing packet ships United States and England. The first American hops imported inlo England am noticed as having been received within n few days. The Acadia, from this port, arrived at Liverpool Jan. 14lli. The European Times gives the following notice of a storm on that coast. "The port of Liverpool nnd neighborhood was vis ited, i n the nijthl of Saturday and moruin,' of Sun. day last, 1st and 'id insl., will) a Icrrific storm, which did lull'! ilamase on land, I ut has been productive uf ere-il disasters nt sen.

The ac counts from Ireland are also unfavorable. In llie London Times of January 31, wo find the following remarks on American af fairs : The (Tenth-men of the United Slate ore nbout en. itirninu their boundaries, nnd they arc evidently re solved Ihat llie world shall know whit it is for Peo ple In bffcnQnct-d in so pleasing a task. Hut there seems te he a hitch or two slid, as indeed might prob ably hnve been anticipated, as to the way in which, and the means by which, the prey is to be secured.

" All these proposals proceed upon the comfortable nssnmplion Ihnt the prey is secure. Texas is consid ered lo bo already 'caught,' nnd the question is how lo rut it up. Nor is tho squabbling about Texas either one de greo more or ono degree less imposing or edifying linn the cool quietness which hangs over thodes pati hing of the Oregon a'lair. Itcsolulions in favor of the immediate ' occupation' of the Oregon tcrrite.ry have longsincepasscd both Houses. There xvas nodif ference of opinion here. Slnvcry,Mexico, or Ihc ncccs. sityofthrowing the seixuro into ,omo form of interna, lional law. interposed no difficulties here. A I ill was introduced, on the resolutions, and is now pending, in Iho Senate of the United States, fir appropriating and occupying the whole lino of sea coast on Ihe Pacific, from between the "iltli nnd 5th dcgrecsofnorlh lat itude (more than 300 miles north of the most notlh cily settled pari of Canada) downward, and as far inland as the U.icUy Mountains. Tins valuable nc-qni-ilion (supposing it ncqtiircd) is lo bo connected with the Missouri Hivcr by n hue of storkndo forts, " not exceeding 5 in number." And various enact ments arc further in e-ontcmplation for encouroging settlers, and consolidating Ihcm when settled. This qtiicl proposal is now beforo the Senate.

It is not to bo denied, however, that brother Jonathan ! has already, lohis own perfect snisfaction, "cast up bis accounts" for.Texas nnd the Oregon, however it miybo certain that '-he has been reckoning without his host." There are two parties lo ihooccupalion of the Orcgi n, and moro than two to the appropriation of fctas, as our frionds in Ihe United Slates will probably learn before very long, if they have not learnt it already. Mero unprincipled, prnfl gatc self-nggran-ilizeinrnt is nil tint tho United Stale- have lo allege in support of ihe monstrous bri-ichofall natural itis lice nnd positive treaty would be involved in either of the- t:-.ei5iircs in xvhivh they seem so deeply engaged. In neither erne nor the other could ihe Stales reason ably eepect this country lo acquiesce; and the an nexation of Texas would involve n disiurlnncc of the settled relations of the American continent, in xvliich all the chief European powers xvould bo more or less interested; yet there serins to bono pause on the part of tha Stales in n headlong adoption of them ; and Ihoiigh it would be, premature until the measures hive passed the Legislature to speculate on them ns accomplished, vet they certainly apreor lo have been already pushed to a point ihat demands the most se rious attention to them. LATER FROM NEW ORLEANS. Wc rcceix-ed this morning by Express in telligence from New Oilcans in advance of tho regular mail ; and wo aro indebted to New Orleans papers (or slips continuing ad ditional items of Mexican news. The steam er Toy via Havana, has brought advices from Vera Cruz lo tho 31st ull. It seems probable that Santa Anna did m.iUe die at tack upon I'upbla on tho night of Jan. 6th, in which lie was repulsed wilh heavy loss, in cluding llin death of Gonzalez Arevalo, one of his officers. The defeated General at tho latest dates xvas a prisoner at Perote, whero his young wife, and his old friend Sig nor Lazaro Villain!!, wilh a devotion which puts tho hollow attachment of political friends to shame, were his companions. Ilaro, Santa Anna's former Minister of Finance, escaped and arrived in thu Toy at Now Orleans. Rejon was also still at large. It was said ihat General ilerrern exhibits feelings of clemency towards his fallen, while the Grand Jury appointed to try him nro extremely biller against him. It is thought thai hi 'If- ..-;:! not bo taken. He had renewed his request for a passport, tironi ising to leave the country forever, lo appoint an agent lo respond to charges ugainsl liitn anil to leave his properly as :i security that all should bo satisfied. Upon this retjuest (lie Court had not decided. In Mexico ev ery thing xvas quiet. It xvas reported that llin Republic xvas to ho divided into three military departments, Arista lo liavn com mand of Northern, Parades of tlio Centre, and some other general of llie Southern sec tion. Tho Picayune says thero was a rumor current in Mexico early in the inonlh of Jan uary that an American frigaic had bombard ed Monterey. Tho same paper has letters from Satila Fe, making il probable that the expeditions of Cuuolly and Spoyor would prove disas trous. S. C. Owen's company arrived on the 29lh of October.

How to Die an Basv Death. A great many essays, says tho rortland Tribune, have been written on the easiest mode of bringing In an end this life of ours. Ono is in favor of hanging, another of drowning, and another t links a bullet through the heart will produce Ihe least suffering. Ilut wo have an easier road to death than either. Although the objert may not be sn soon accomplished, still it is effectual, for thousands have tried it. 'Wo will give you the receipt ; take several strong curds, fasten them around tho waist as light ns you can bear il, and let them remain a diy or two. Gradu ally lighten Iho cords, persevere until your body has Iho appearance of an hour glass. Your health will gradually declino; you will fool faint and languid, rannot endure work, and will pro. bably have Iho dyspepsia, liver complaint, and be I'vreedingly iTotiblcd with nervousness. No matter; the work of death will bo gradually going on i before many months consumption will be scaled, nnd you will die so easy a death, that your parting breath will bo hardly perceptable. If, however, you wish to commit suicide in a short time, wear thin shoes and muslin dresses in cold damp weather.

On Friday last the Senato of Virginia, by a volo of 16 to 14, indefinitely postponed the resolution from the House of Delegates pro viding for a joint Hireling to edect a U. S.

In the same way nnd for the same reason the Loco Foco Senate of Indi ana have recently prevented an election for U. b. Senator front" that Stale.

This Is tho title of a book which is dedicated to the Hon. George I. Marsh, and is Baid lo bo a journol of the Author's pcrcgrimlions through ihc Northern part of New Vork, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, flic, durinj the summer and autumn of last year. It is a rambling, desultory record of (probably) every idea, good or bad, that broke inlo tho enclosure of the author's brain during his lour. Ho seems lo bo a good-hcartcd youngster, with no little Imagination, a most abseirbing passion for catching fish, and a re spectable idea ol himself. He may bo moreover a good landscapa painter, though il bo habitually works as rapidly as be did ono day on the shores of Lako lloricon, when ho "executed" no less than eix land scape", xvo should prefer to cmp'oy some ono elso lo point for us. He tells us be xvas " compelled by his inclinations lo abandon tho 'cotton trade ond mcar line,' " ond yet ho don't seem to have quite escaped from bis trafficking influences, for he gives you to a ilollar, the price Mr. Ward paid Colo for a landscape I and one is tempted lo supply tho exclamation for him i " don't I wish I had such a job '" He often, however, gels quiln disenthralled from all baser asso ciations, ond makes bis lucubrations quite readable, until Jou come to a speeimcnof his e-ver-recurrinir tvvatllo about milters which o man who pretends to write n book, ought to know belter than to print. For cninple, lead the stufi'on page 5, and sec if it has ono single attribute to rescue it from the charge of being us silly as human softness could make it. Such things xvould bo well enough in a nrivnte letter to a most intimate friends but only think of telling all the world, m a book, ond that not pretending to be a romance, bow a girl, once beloved, has become estranged because she vat lotett, tried to break the poor author's heart, nnd missed her figure, lint, bo tells us, "she will have to answer for tlio deed." There is something dirk about thiss that list xvord, being italicised, may mean more lhan meets the eye, and wo shrewdly suspect the gill in question, hiving beguiled lutn while in the tender mood, bi3 purloined ono of his title deeds, nnd then cruelly lold linn lo be gone! If ibis is so, sl,o ought tu make reparauon xvilho-it delay. Ilut why do we linger! It were an ungrateful task, as it xvould be on impractical Ic or.e, without writing a book ns lar.-ens bis, lo dwell upon the innumerable xio'ations of t.islo nnd sense, llie i u suitablc revelation' of private matters, and the' fie qucnt murder nf tho King's Lnglish in these not un interesting piges; but il is the unspeakable chapter devoted to llurhngton ond several of its cilizens, which alone bos induced us to take pen in baud and notice Ihe advent of ibis volume nt oil. It is dedicaled, as xvo before stated, tn Mr. Marh. Now we ilou't know that this is very objecltonal le in itself, but lo be tho " foremost man" in a boot;, nnd then be "done I rown" in " soft sawder," as Mr. M. is in llus one, i' certainly making a hrgo draught on a gcn((ema'i good nature. What is saidofhini is all true enough, but we protest that every thing fit to be said of o nnn in conversation, is not proper lo be published to Iho world. The author, after dilatin; upon the points which dtsiinguish Mr. Marsh, informs us with the most imperturbable gravity, lint his ehifj object in spcokingofhun is to "introduce a passing notice of his library," ,f-c. This "passing notice," thus coinplitnentarily introduced, extent's through a number of pages, nd consists chietly of a list of the books, which may prove beneficial, since it will serve as a catalogue, if Mr. Marsh's should chance to get lest. This youth devotes a whole chapter to liarlington, and after gelling through xvilh his profound rcllec. tious un the surrounding scenery and associations, he approaches the department of personal twallle with formal solemnity. "The first of the three name- be fore me i-," &.c. .Me. Hue is no unfair play, no ar bilraiy putting one before another, but it is a fur inference that in deciding the momentous ques-iun of precedence, he wrote the names nn slips of piper, and put them in a hat, drawing ono at a time- like ju rors at Justice Courts.

It is our estima ble townsman, Col. Peck. Ho too conies in for a share of this queer youngster's most equivocal com mendation, nnd is the subject of an amusing piece of bgic thu-: "He has never held any public sta tion, and is thereforea private citizen 1" Thatisvvlnt we call safe talking. What n pity the author would not keep as near shore continually. It would be- a capital thing far ibis young mm, ifho could find some one, die next lime he proposes lo publish, xvho xxould xvade through his manuscripts and burn the twallle. The only lod result for him would le the terrible diminution of the pages, which might oblige him lo sell his volume for less money. Ilut it xvould bo a ffreat relief to the public upon whom he depended for rea lets. We write what we do, in no spirit of unhindness to the young gcnlle-man, but on the contrary we acctrd to him good intentions and a guileless heart. Ilut he will learn before be is fifty, that there are men in the world who can afl'ird to dispense even wilh delicate and wclt-considere-d praise, to whom the indi.crimi note language of commendation, especially from a source of questionable authority, cannot but be dis tasteful. He will learn, too, that it is exceedingly out of taste, besides being disrespectful, to compare a ven erable and exemplary man to that impeisonation of gross, though amusing proflijaiy, Falstafl". He may also learn that though boys bl.o himself may deem it glory enough lo sco their names in print, no nmter how ihey come there, other men thero ate who pre- ler to hold a pttvate station, at least until they they can emerge from it cri-ditably. It is proper to say thai none of the gentlemen men tioned in the book have lecn consulted in rehiiun to this publication, nor are any of litem privy toit.

Mr. B. informs us that ho labors under some embarrassment in con sequence of suspicions entertained, nnd ex pressed by some, that he is not what he pro fesses to bo ; bul judging from the character of his testimonials, nnd oilier evidences be foro us, wo cannot doubt that he is entitled that respect which is due to ardent sincerity nnd the high calling to which ho professes to devote himself.
