Speaker of the Senate,
Agreeably to custom, on I nest's:, mor
ning the Speaker resigned his seat, and
the Senate proceeded to the election of
another Speaker, and the Bth hallot re
stilted in the election of JOHN 13. STER
-10 ERE, of Montgomery county. On the
lirst ballot the Whigs supported Mr.
SULLIVAN, who received D votes, and the
Locos scat tered —Mr. CHAPMAN receiving
7 votes, Mr. Sitnnwoon 6, and others one
and more. On the 6 succeeding ballots
the votes were scattered i n all directions.
On the Bth and float ballot, the Sena

This result is the effect of the division
in the Imeant:o ranks occasioned by the
election of Gen. Cameron, and may be re-.
garded as a Cameron triumph. Mr. Ster

Cameron, but he ()died the caucus nomi•

The Lehofocos are trying to raise a
Ilurra over the result of the State Elec
tion recently held in Rhode Island, but
with the feast po ,, ible reason. Every
man elected to an office in that Stale, ex
cept a•sniall part of the minority in the
Li.gislature, is a Whig ; and although
the Law and Order candidate for Gover
nor was defeated by about 110 majority in
the State, yet the other candidates of that
party were erected by larger majorities
than that, anti the candidate himself was
a IVhig. The New York Tribune—
a paper always accurate in its statement
--alludes to the causes which produced
the result in the following tet ms
"Gov. FENNER and Congressman PoT•
TER are deteated by the story, true or
lake, that they were unfaithful to the sen
timent of Rhode Island in regard to the
Texas Iniquity. Gov. F. was accused of
withholding the Resolutions of the Leg , -
islature against Annexation at an import
ant crisis ; and Mr. Porrea once voted
with the Annexationists on a preliminary
question—it was said by mistake. We
think ho has been hardly dealt with. Mr.
POTTER though a unifiirm lscxsoN and
VAN BYIREN loan, voted for CLAY last Fall ;
Mr. FENNER, we understand, did not vote
at all, and never professed to be ui any

the Congressmen elect are Whigs and
Law and Order men of the most thorough
stamp, but Gov, ARNOLD, like Gov.
.I,toxsox, is understood to hold that no
good can result from keeping Dorr lon
ger in prison."
As for the new Governor IttexsoN, he
has since his election written a letter to
Mr. ELMER, a member of the last Congress
from New Jersey, in he defines his
position in the most utimistaten manner.
After stating that he opposed front first
to last all the proceedings roeirecled with
the ‘. peopleA Constitation"—aided in
forming the Law and Order party, and
bore artn with others in defence of the

"The people, as you are aware, since
that time, viz : nt 1843, formally Wonted
the Constitution under which the Gov.
ernment of the State is now org,amzed.—
In the meanwhile, Mr. Dona has been
tried, convicted and imprisoned. H is
present unhappy situation is a constant
source of discomfort and trouble, in the
State, and out of the State. 'Neither his
party, nor the law and order party can
disband, while he remains in prison.
In this emergency, it was thought ad.
visable by many, to obtain a direct ex
pression from the people on th. questions
of liberation and general amnesty. To
accomplish this I consented to have my

are estopped from controverting--that the
DORIC party, before they could obtain his
consent to be a candidate, fully acknowl
edged the validity of the present Consti
tution of Rhode Island, and therefore ad
mitted by the strongest implication that .
they and View leader had been guilty of
treason to the Government. After this
the simple qnestion was whether DORIC
should continue in the Penitentiary, or be
liberated ; and while BUMMUM flea re
quired the former, it is not surprising that
the sympathies of human nature should
plead for his release, especially as the
danger was over and the Government
established on firm foundations with the
assent of the rebels themselves. Our
readers Will see in the above how little
cause of boasting the Locofocos have in
the fthode Island Election.

Ex-Governef Thomas.
SVAimotoToN, Apt il 9th, 1845.
Ex-Goternor Thomas bound over for a
libel--History of his matrimonial dif
fealties—His wife returns home—Fan
cied reconciliation—Collision with her
father—Governor Thomas' pamphlet.
The case of Ex. Gov. Thomas, who has
been bouno over here for an alleged litre',
is just now the popular theme of gossip. I
depricate the introduction before the pub
lic of all such matters as those involved in
this affair ; but since the subject has at•
tained a very general publicity, and gar
bled accounts of the difficulty have got
abroad, I think you ought to refer to it, so
tar at least as to set misrepresentations
right. My information I premise, how
ever, is deriued chiefly from the pamphlet
issued by Governor Thomas, the publica
tion of which has been construed into a
Prior to the election of Nlr. Thomas as
Governor of Maryland he was a metnber
of Congress for several years, and while in
Washington, in discharge of his duty, be
came acquinted with Miss sally McDow
ell, a daughter of Gov. NI cDowell, of Vir
ginia, and niece of Col. Benton. After
various little dilliculties, M r. Thomas and
she were married, just on the eve of his
election as governor; and the kride, with
a young cousin, a Mr. Taylor, proceeded
to the home of the Governor. Here, how
ever, it was tint long before Gov. Thomas
became jealous of his wife, and eventually
charged her with certain improprieties of
conduct, which led ultimately to their sep•
eration. At first he wished his wife to
return to her father's house until his sus•
picions rtgainst her should be removed; the
aid of Mrs. Benton was called to effect this.
m rs , Th o mo. did nut at first go; but final.
ly went to Baltimore on a visit for a few
days. Ilere, too, Gov. Thomas repaired,
where various interviews passed between
him and &Greta members of her family.
The husband seems now to have become
disabused of his suspicions, and was as
anxious for his wife's return as he had
been formerly for her departure. Con
trary, however, to his expectation, instead
of following him home to Annapolis, she
retired to her father's house in Virginia,
where she has ever since continuedlo re-
Governor Thomas now appears to have
become more and more desirous of it re
conciliation with his wife. Some courte•
sies which he received from her father,
such as public d ocuments and newspapers
franked to him—led him to suppose that
Governor McDowell was not averse to a
reunion between himself and wife. Ac
cordingly he wrote to Mrs. Thomas, stat
ing that if the letter was not returned in a
certain Dine, lie should consider the act as
an expression of her wish in favor of a re
conciliation. The priml having elapsed
without the return of the letter, Governor
Thomas set lorth to visit the mansion of
Goy. McDowell, and claim his wile.
Before reaching there, however, he ac-:
culentally met his father-in-law at an it'd,
just as they were both going to enter the
same stage. Governor McDowell refused
to ride with Gov. Thomas : high words
and an altercation ensued; the father•in•
law procured anoth, conveyance, and the
aim-in-law remained in the stage; but when
Gov. Thomas arrived at the end of his
journey he found the people so exasperated
against him, fur the alleged ;Mark an
Governor McDowell, that he was compell
ed to leave the place to secure his personil
safety. On arriving at his residence in
Maryland, he found the letter he had writ
ten to his wife. She had detained it until
nearly the allotted time, in order to hear
from her father who wasehsent; and thus
arose this unfortunate collision between
fa her-in-law and son.
Gov. Thomas seemes to think that, in
this unhappy arid'', he has been hardly
dealt with. '11..e notoriety which, by his
pamphlet, ho has given to the difficulties
of his matrimonial connection, he defend.
on the grounds that garbled statements and
premeditated slanders have been circulat
edict his prejudice. He declares himself
eager for a thorough examination of the
whole alnir. There seems to be still on
his mind misgivings as to his wile's p'er..
fect innocence, arising from a fancied dis
inclination on her part and that of her
faMily to submit to ac' lid examination
of his suspicions. T '';',fends of Gov.
McDowell whisper th Thomas is
insane. There certain . me strange
things developed in his state 01; but yet
such as are not irreconscilable with a jeal
ous, sensitive and morbidly suspicious
mind. If it be remembered in forming an
opinion of this unfortunate business, that
Gov. Thomas is some twenty years older
than his wife—that Miss McDowell was a
gay, perhaps a giddy girl—and that her
father was at first opposed to the marriage,
many of the difficulties of the case vanish
at Ihice.
Since the publication of Gov.Thomas's
pamphlet a number of gentlemen, neigh.
burs of Gov. McDowell, have held a public
meeting and (testified to the irreproacha

A. IWational N'ame,
A movement has been made by the
New York Historical Society to fix upon
some name by which to designate our
Republic. The term " United States" is
no name at all.
We are all a collection of communities
united together, and while each State has
its distinctive name there is no word to
denote the aggregate community—the
grand idea of unity, power, greatnsss and
grandeur blended in the national charac
ter by which we are known to the world,
and in which the glory of the Republic is
to be concentrated.
The want of such a name is proof that
as yet our feeling of State pride and re
gard predominate over those which attach
us to the Union. Yet in the progress of
things the sublime national idea must em
brace and comprehend all mere local at
tachments. We now find it sufficient to
be called Marylanders, or Virginians, or
Pennsylvanians and such oesignationg
will never lose their distinctive meaning ;
but there should be a greater appellation
than any of these—one which every citi
zen in every State might bear and rejoice
in and be proud of--a name to denote our
fellowship in the great Angle Saxon fami
ly of the West—gut imperial name fitted
to the magnificent region which is ours
and to the united community who achie
ved their freedom as one people, and
whose destiny in all time to conic must be
N.Vhat is this name to be 1 The New
York Society adopting a suggestion made
some years ago by Washington Irving,
proposes " .81b ganin." Their report on
the subject reccommends this name " con
sidering that it is derived from the greirt.
est and most useful natural feature coin
mon to the whole country, an eternal
type of strength and union, stretching
from the Gulf of Mexico to the great
Lakes ; that it is associated with the most
interesting portions of our history; and
that in adopting, it we should restore hi the
7fand one of the primordial titles of the
aborigines."Th," , :„
The RepubN will doubtless have d'
name. There never was yet a great idea
that did not, at the epoch of its 'natality,
find a name. As body to soul so are
words to thoughts. An idea is not burn
until it is embodied in language; that is
its birth--its incarnation, as we may say.
When therefore we heroine a homogene
ous people and are well blended together ;
when the affinities which draw all parts
of the Union together are thoroughly
identified and mingled with ou r sympa
thies and altections, then shall " we, the
People," have a name to denote that we
are truly one People.
The agitation of the subject shows that
this period is at hand. It nay not be the
name of " Allegania" that we shall be
baptised in ; but the right name will cone.
And when it comes we may presume that
it will be recognized and hailed as the
true name. "If we are what we boast,"
says the New York Report, and with this
quotation we leave the subject. " one

More Gerrymandering.
Our readers well recollect the astonish
ment and indignation expressed by the
people at the infamous Gerrymandering
of the Stale by the Locoloco majority in
the late Congressional Apportionment Bill
The districts genereally were most un
fairly formed, and the people at the first
election under the bill, expressed the dis
approbation of the conduct of the Loco
loco majority, by electing a majority of
Whig; members of Congress—some of
them in decided Locofoco districts, which
were trained with the especial view of in
suring the success of the LocolOco party.
Amongst these districts was the 523 d, or
Erie district, which was the most hideous
looking animal ever exhibited on terra
firma, if we except a few of the Gerry.

The election of Mr. Heed in the district

guise the Leos last fall, have suggested
to them the necessiity of making it 'stron•
get in order to insure success, and they
have accordingly added to it these three
townships, which give art additional Loco•
loco majority. It is even a worse outrage
upon the Whigs of the district than the
formation of the district originally. We
hope it will have the effect of arousing
their indignation, and inspire them with
the spirit and determination to resent the
injury at the polls, in a proper manner and
we think we know enough of the Whigs
of the district, to insure us that it will
have this effect.

Ihe Winter session in this institution
terthinated oo the X' tit March, after the
usual examinations, and the public con
test between the literary societies. These
exercises afforded evidence of the ability
and faithfulness of the Professors and the
itiligence of students. The Literary
contest" between the Societies is an ex.
ercise which originated in this College,
and has since been adopted by a number
of Institutions, ospecially in the West.•—
k has had a happy effect in stimulating
young men to in prove in composition,
oratory, and debate.
It w iti be gratifying to the friends of
literature to know that this Institution, the
oldest " West of the mountains," is in a
prosperous condition, and notwithstand
ing the increased num'ter of Seminaries
in every direction, stilt retains its pre
eminence, as to nutiMers and usefulness.
The number of Students during the year
past has exceeded two hundred—of these
a greater number than formerly (170) be
long to the regular College classes. It
has been a e aini of the trustees and Fac
ulty to elevate the standard of education.
For several years past the course of study
has been extended, especially in Mathe•
maks and physical science, so as to be
fully equal to that of the best Colleges in
the East. There is a lull Faculty, com
posed of able and experienced teachers
in the different departments. It is our
determination not to lower the standard
or abridge the course of Study, although
it is well known that our course has pre
vented to some extent the increase of
numbers, as the tendency of the age is to
hastea and abridge in everything and too
twiny you-g men are impatient of the de
lay and labor necessary to substantial tiCo•
quirements. We however entertain en
tire confidence that this College will still
receive the patronage of the friends of a
thorough education.
