XXXVllth—Oongress First Session.
WAsemteroN, Feb. 13
After farthdr discussion, the further consid
erationof the bill was postponed till tomor
. The treasury note bill was then taken up,
the question being on Fessenden's amendment,
to make the bonds redeemable after five years,
and payable after twenty years, at the pleasure
of the United States, which was withdrawn.
Mr. Coiaazaa, (Vt.) moved to strike out that
portion of the bill, which makes the notes a
legal tender for private debts.
M 'ad the amendment. He
said if it :Wei ado,fted helihoUld vote against
the bill as he considered It would be unjust,
wickedly, unjust to place all this money in the
hands of the soldiers and employees of the Gov
ernment, and foic.e them to take it and then
net piOttc t it afterwardi in their hands.—
. said the • people -of Massachusetts
were in favor of the bill as , it stands
with great unanimity, and he believed
that no bill except the bill for taxation was
rhoeived with so niuch joy sis , this with
the legal tender clause. He thought the ar
guments of tire Senators from Maine and Ver
mont rather against the issuing of the notes
at all, rather than against the legal tender
clause. If we do not make the notes a legal
tender, we will depreciate the notes of the nut
.ders and sailors, who will be compelled to
submit to a shave by the brokers. He read
a letter Bonn. nine merchants of Boston, rep
reseuting $40,000,000 of capital, who savor
making it a legal tender, and they say they du
not know a merchant in Boston who it not in
favor of it.
Mr. COLAXICIL modified the amendment so as
to strike out all that portion of the bill which
makes the bill a legal tender for debts of the
Quite.i States on auy kind of debts, including
the amendment of the committee, providiug
that toe interest be paid in coin.
Mr. Baseman (Ohio,) believed there was a ne
cessity fur making these notes a legal tender—
organs of finaucial opinioa in the county agrees
that tnia is indispensible—evtrybcty, trunk the
Secretary of the Treasury, though all the bank
ers and most of tile mercnants of the country
agree to that necessity. The Chambers
of COl:amerce of New York, Boston,
Philadelphia, Chicago, and other cities
agree on tis point. We have to pay be
fore the fitst day of July $343,236,000, and of
ibis $100,t,00,000 is now due tuts day. How
are we going to g t this amount—that is a
question hardly necessary to be made. We
umnot pay it in coin, for we have not enough in
circulation since the banks have suspended. The
banks cannot let tll3 have any more money, fur
we have already taken more than their capital
n bonds. Capitalists cannot buy the bonds of
the government for they cannot get coin
onough, which is the only thing that can -be
now received. If the bondsinv newttritiwiron.
the market theY would depreciate to 60 cents
on the dollar, according to the opinion of
all financiers, mscause there was no money to
pay the bonds. Then how are we going to
pay the soldiers and contractors? lhere is
no other way than to give them notes which
are as near money as possible. He con
tended that it was perfectly constitution
al to issue these notes. The history of
the Government settled this questiun. We had
issued billsof credit duriug the war with Mexido
acd in 1812. We are bound if we pass these
notes to the soldiers to make them as secure
and negotiable as we can. We must either use
sound and safe Government paper currency or
use the paper money' of all banks which may
spring up in the country. By issuing the amount
provided for in this bill we cannot inflate the
currency. It will be under the control of the
Government, and not one-tenth of the amount
of the annual production of the country, which
is 1,900,000,000 dollars. He should vote for
this measure as a temporary necessity to carry
on the war.
Mr. COWAN, (Pa.,) referred to the constitu
tion to . show that certain powers were
delegated to the Government, while others
are reserved to the States, one of these
propositions were that the States shall
not emit bills of credit, coin money or pass
laws impairingithe' obligations of contracts.—
He thought these principles were well settled.
He contended that the government had no
right to make a law in any way to im
pair the obligation of contracts, and also
said that this measure, instead of preserving
the Government, tended to overthrow it. He
opposed this measure because it impaired all
the contracts, was unconstitutional and was ab
horrent to all his ideas of justices. The meas
ure would disturb all the relations of
debtor and creditor, destroy all the
credit in the country. He was not
a jtidge in the land, but he would declare that
this measure was not constitutional. He would
take the credit of the government and go into
the market and if it was not worth more than
sixty cents on the dollar sell it for that and
act as an honest man should. He declared
that this was a Charleston scheme and an
abandonment of the great charter of the Gov
ernment and liberties of the people. There
was tytanny in compelling a man to take five
hundred dollars from his neighbor when he
ought to have oue thousand dollars. He hoped
the clause would be stricken out.
The discussion was continued at some length
by Messrs. Howard, Wiley, M'Dougall, Doolit
tle, Simons, Bayard and Sumner. The ques
tion was then taken on Mr. Collamer's amend
ment to strike out the legal tender clause, &c.,
and it was disagreed to by the following vote:
YEas—Messrs. Anthony, Bayard, Collamer,
Cowan, Fessenden, .Foote, Foster, Kennedy,
King, Latham, Smith, Pearce, Powell, Sauls
bury, Simmons, Thompson and Willey-19.
Naas--Messrs. Chandler, Clark, Davis, Dix
on, Doolittle, Harlan, Harris, Henderson, How
ard, Howe, Lane, McDougal, Morrill, Pomeroy,
Rice, Sherman, Sumner, Ten Eyck, Wade,
Wilki ns on, Wilson, (Mass.) and Wdson,
Mr. Sumrsa offered an amendment to allow
the notes to be funded in two year bonds
bearing eight per cent. interest. Adopted.
Mr. Daum:LE, (Wis ) moved to amend so as
to limit the operation of the legal tender clause
to private debts hereafter contracted.
Mr. Emu, (N. Y.,) offered a substitute
which was rejected.
The bill was then reported to the Senate.
The amendment made in committee to the
first section was agreed to, exc pt the proposi
tion of Mr. Simmons, to allow the notes to in
funded in eight per cent. bonds, which was
amended to 7-three tenths and adopted.
Mr. Fressanner moved to insert an ,amend
ment providing for the deposit of the notes at
ff per cerit., which waa stricken tfut of the bill
PRICE ONE CENT.
Messrs. Psalms, SAIIISBURY and POWKLl.spoke
against the bill as unconstitutional and for this
reason they would not vote for it.
The bill as ameudtd was then passed, by a
vote of SO yeas to 7 nays. The negative vote
was as as follows :

One of my eyes has been turned and disfigured
eighteen years. My &wily doctor advised me
to let it be, and said nothing could be done for
it. Dr. Jones straightened it in a half minute,
and made the sight perfect. I consider the
operation worth five thousand dollars to me,
and the doctor charged me but twenty-five
dollars. Cantaants EARL;

Lunatic Asylum, in Columbus, a man who has
been there seven years, and imagines himself
the Son of God. He has lately fasted for
twenty-one days, and at the end seemed not the
worse for it, only a little more excitable. This
atatemeut is confirmed by nurses and doctors.
He resisted any temptation presented to him
