Whereas. While other portions of our highly fa

Whereas. in thrpopiaions or this meeting. based
upon reliable data, the North Branch Canal when
completed, will prove a source of revenue to the
Therefore, Resolved, That the time has arrived
when no hesitation should be manifested on the part
df our Legislature in providing the means for its
speedy completion.
Resolved. That the -welfare of the whole Com
monwealth, no less than that ponion through which,
the Canal passes, demands that this valuable ar4
important work should no longer be suffered to lan
guish, but that it shon:d be brought into use at the
earliest practicable period.
Resolved, That as four.fifths of the work has now
been done and a like proportion of expenditures in
curred, that it is the dictate of wisdom as well as
the soundest - economy. to raise at once a sufficient
sum to insure the opening of the Canal early in the
year 1851.
Res • lved. Thai as a measure of financial policy, a
loan of a sum sufficient to bring this Canal into use
in the shortest possible time, is justifiable under the
circumstances, and that we respectfully request our
Senator and Representatives to urge upon their
brethren in the Legislature, prompt and decided ac
tion, and that they use their best efforts for aceom
plishing the object.
-Resolved. -That we tender our thanks to L*-Go•

Majesty's Consul at Greytown who is also a princi

place, he hail, by (erre, compelled the American
steamship Prometheus to pay the port dues de
manded of her by the authorities of Grepown.
To this dispatch Vice Admiral Sir Creme Sey.
moor had immediately replied by saying that nei
ther he nor, to his knowledge, her Majesty's consul
had received any orders to allow her Majesty's ships
to be employed at such service, or in enforcing the
fiscal regulations el Mosquito ; the sole object of
the present.* of a British ship of war at Greytown
being to defend the town and inhabitants from ag

The Wheeling Bridge Case.
Oar readers are apprised of the decision by the
United States Supreme Court of the case of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania against the Whee
ling and Belmont Bridge Company, it being adverse
to the company, the majority of the court holding
that the bridge is an obstruction to the river. The
former and toll length report in the decision, which
will be looked for with much interest in this sec
tion and the %Vett, has not yet come to hand. We
have, h,wever, some further particulars. A cor
respondent of the North American says that the ma
jority of the court also held that Pennsylvania,
through her public works, has been injured because
the navigation of the Ohio has been obstructed ;
and that being so injured, Pennsylvania has a right
to claim that a coon of chancery shall . order the
obstruction to be removed in vindication and pro-
tection of her rights. It is further set forth that the
obstruction is chiefly operative as to seven packets
plying between Pittsburg and Cincinnatti whose
passage under the bridge, at a few feet above the
ordinary stage of water, it seriously interferes with,
and sometimes entirely prevents. These seven
boats, out of two hundred and thirty running be
tween thepoints named, carry one half the freight
and three fourths of the passengers. The opinion
further declares lowering chimneys Is a hazardous
and expensive process, and is, vierefore, a tax up
on owners ; and that shortening the chimneys would
retard the speed of the boats, and so subject the
owners to severe the annual loss. The court de
cree that the bridge must be elevated to the height
of a hundred and eleven feet, instead of ninety.
two feet, as at present, with wan of at least three
hundred feel Mr. Johnson, who is of counsel for
the Bridge Company, moved a modification of the
decree, so as to allow a draw to be inserted which,
he argued' would obviate the obstruction. This
application will probably be granted, or, al all
events, something calculated to accomplish the
sameobject. Should it not be, legislation will prob •
ably be restored to defeat the degte%

The thnali Hole Law.
The following extract from the proceeilir,gs of
the House of Representatives, nn the 9th inst., in
dicates that there is a prospect of the repeal of the
small note law :
On motion of Ma Recanow, the bill to repeal
the 48 and 49th sections of the act of 1850. regulat
ing banks—the *cations prohibiting the circulation
of the small notes of other States—was taken up in
committee of the whole, M. KILBOURS in the
chair, and passed.
Oa proceeding•to the second reading of the bill,
the vote was as follows:

Rhey, Speaker-4 P.
Su the bill was taken up on second reading.
Ara Gitaas, offered an amendment to repeal the
13th section of the act of April 11, 1327, the act
which prohibits the banks of the State, from issuing
notes of less denomination than five dollars.
Ma. fisootasi.t., suggested that this amendment
would not effect the object intended; and Mk
Stumm, offered a general amendment to repeal
all Laws which prohibit the issue of small notes by
our State Banks. Mn withdrew his amend
ments to let this one in.
Ma Bum moved a pastpor.ement of the question
for the present.
Ma James, (of Warren) opposed this motion and
also the amendment. He said the questions were
distinct, and each should stand on its own merits.
He was in favor of the provisions of the Bill, and
opposed to the amendment. His constituents had
given no indications in favor of the amendment.
Ma. Aimee* spoke in favor of the amendment.
He said that if the object of the postponement was
to perfect a bill to carry out the intention of the
amendment, as well as the bill, he was not oppos.
eit to it.
Ma HARMS said he bad intmduced the bill at an
early stage of the session, and since the expression
of the people had been decidedly in favor of its pas
sage. The-Grand Juries of Wairen and Erie, and
other counties, had preSented the law and it was re
gated as a nuisance in all the border counties. His
constenents.he knew to be in favor of the repeal, as
so far as he could judge, the people of the State
were. The law could not be enforced in border
counties • and if it could be it doing business. The
matter b e regarded as fully understood, and there
was no necessity Or postponement
Ma %oar suggested that a correspondence should
be entered into with other States to have all small
notes prohibited.
Ma. Fwre said the law as it stood could not be
enforced Within sight of the Speaker's chair
could be seen handbills advertising the public , that
these foreign notes would be taken at par. it was
not the barrier counties merely, but in the whole
State the law was disregarded and and a nullity.—
In his own county, a prosecution under it was held
to be of malice, and the prosecutor sentenced to
pay the costs. it was a bill on which the repre.
sentatives oldie people could at any lime vote.
MN. WALTON expressed similar views. He could
vote at any time on the proposition The public
voice had distinctly called for a repeal of the law
in regard to foreign banks—and members on the
floor, had declared that it could not be enforced.—
The very administrators of the law had become its
violators—and every man in business was called
upon to violate it. He believed our own banks
should provide this small currency— they could
drive the foreign notes out, end turnish a currency
in which the people would have confidence, and
convertible into specie, at convenient places. There
had been loud cells for a repeal of the law, and it
very iesirable that it should be speedily done: Ile
would vote for the bill and the amendment.
Me. Knot° was sorry the amendment had been
introduced. He was in favor of both questions,
but he had rather ;hat they should be left distinct.
There was a moral quest= involved in it. The
people would become accustomed to held laws in
contempt. .4
Some remarks were also made by Ma. Bees
racv end Ma Cat.t.r.; when MR. Hun . raised a
question of order. lie ihnu2ht ender the rules, these
two matters as distinct, could not be intronoced into
one bill.
. The Speaker so decides!.
