the members of the committee present, and sever

Glaosoigaaihire Coal Field.—Within the last
few days,two new veins of coal have been struck
in the hilly district, likely to furnish the market
with 4 very abundant supply of superior coal.--
The one is of a bituminous, and very cheerful
quality, on the Llancaiach estate, the joint prop
erty of Lord Dynevor and J. M. Richards, Esq.
which's worked by the under lessees of Sir Chris
topher Smith, Bart. The other is a coal which
we also predict will be a great favorite, found by
the spirited exertions of the Messrs. Wayne, of
Aberdare, on the property of Mr. William David,
at A bernant-pgroes, in that parish. The extent
of both these veins- is very great, and they are
generally considered to be of as good quality as
any in the Principality. .
Liabilities of those who take New papers.—
The.laws declare that any person to' whom a
periodical is sent is responsible for - payment
if be receives the paper (mention use of it, if he
has never subscribed for it or has ordered it

not to take the paper from ithe office or person
with whom the paper is left, or to notify the pub.
fisher that he does not wish it.
If papers are sent to a post otillee,'store,or tav

not his sole oil main object. He waii,de

establishing ad National Bank upon the

others it was liable to objections," dec. and
that had the President of the United States
been called on, be would have cheerfully
given the details of such an institution as .

Here, for thel fourth time, was resumed
this suggestion of a National Bank as be.

government. :Not only the general prin.

The, highest] proof of which any argu

recommendatien of Geo: Jackson, of the
first proposition. And what is the second.
Mr. Clay would consider that and the third'
in connection: that, with the view ascribed

the bank of th United States, and ending
with State ban -And that spitem wie

proofs that thl was so, were easily found,
in-the egotism vanity of the author of
the scheme. II was even forte - modeling,
re-touching, -organizing every dim.
Nor was this a peculiar trait in that ind-
vidual, to seek o stamp upon every insti

character. Other men bad possessed it.

cordial: or 4 his 'part I, thought, on my own
part lam ?lure, it was sincere: He had
achieved ue of the mdaleat victories re

disposed t s pay to his genius the homage

that renewal, I was invited to dine with. 1

His administration was an astounding
one, and so was his ' ensures. Before one
peal had died away pon the •ear, others
more tremendous enstued., No, sir, I ask
pardon for this compilarisen; ! should have
compared the coutseloftbat administration
to a volcano—from !which eruptions of
burning lava succeed each other, before
the ashes of the first +• are cold, and before
the cities over which the liquid fire had
rolled, were buried bneath it; still spread
ing in a wider and Wider circle of death
and destruction. 'i
I will pass over mole direct proofs spread
throughout the messge and furnished by.
the acts of the late a d ministration. Vari
ous causes were suggsted fur his extraor
dinary course
,on the 'tart of the late Presi
dent.' 1 have bend .bat he once receivy)
some disappointment, or fancied injury:
from a local, bank, aid that he chose-this
mode of revenging •tbmself. Another
signed cause is; that oniumacious and re-.
bellious Nick Biddl would not irrn out
that gawky giant— gi nt, both in mind and
. body, Jeremiah Mason, or Pbrtsmouth,
from the Presidency_tof the Branch Bank
there, at,the suggestidn of Isaac Hill. But
whateverwas the real n, such was the fact,
as to the opinion, an such the course of
the late executive, in isegard to the United
States bank. • •
'As to the State banks, be proceeded
more cautiously witht;gard to them. Gal.;
lent and bold as he w s, be was also ways
andicautious. He n ew that it would be
impossiblito.efreot e destruCtion
local banks at once. He proceeded by
making them interest d partners in this at
tack upon the Unit ' States Bank; and
i n
how? • The proofs ate to be found in hie
message of 1834, - i 35, _ 1836, and his
Farewell Message.' .
[Here Mr. Clay l ed extracts, in sup
port of his. propesitio , from' these.docu
meritsoind traced th alleged purposes of
the late Executive, in his mode of treating
the subject of the cur , ' cy in biameesages,
—in bisallusions to the mode of selling
the public lands„—an i in the adoption OF
the Treasury circular pp to the final leave:
taken, when the late *dent recommend
edl pi continuation of , - conflict promising
the country that the tallest will be liseg
and the conquest no an. easy one; and
telling them th at be ad to congratulate
himself-upon.baring tfy his humble efforts,
contributed to do something- towards the
accomplishment of tbo grind design.]
