Both Houses met in Convention on
Monday last, and elected ARNOLD Put

Treasurer—the vote being for PLUMER
(Loco) 75 ; for JOHN BANKS ( big) 53.
A resolution passed the Senate, on mo
thin of Mr. JORDAN, of Dauphin, instruct
ing the Senators and Representatives in
Congress from this State, to exert their
influence to secure the honorable dis
charge of Pennsylvania Regiments now
in service in Mexico. Nothing of impor
tance was done in the House or Senate.
On Tuesday, Mr. Benner introduced
a bill to provide for the registration of
births, marriages, and deaths through-
out this commonwealth.

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 19, 1848.
SENATE.—Mr. SMITH, offered the fol
lowing resolution, which was read twice
and agreed to.
Resolved, That the Auditor General
be requested to furnish the Senate, as
soon as practicable, with a statement in
tabular form showing the valuation of all
property, trades, professions, Zte., made
taxable for Stnte purposes, in the sever
nl Counties of this Commonwealth, for
the years 1845 and 1847 ; the amount
of tax assessed therein, and the amount
received therefrom, for the years 184.1,
1842, 1843, 1844, 1845, 1846 and 1847,
together with the amount now outstand

HOUSE.— A. number of private bills I
were read. in place. The war resolu
tions of Mr. Hill were made the order of ,
. for Thursday week.
The resolution offered by Mr. H. S. 1 ,
EVANS relative to the infliction of death
penalty, pending the amendment offered
by Mr. FRICK, was taken up.
Mr. S. W. ROBERTS, moved to a
mend the amendment by adding the fol
lowing preamble :
WHEREAS, In the opinion otthis House,
the ends of justice would be promoted
by the abolition or commutation of the
punishment of death in Pennsylvania.
Mr. BLACK, moved the postponment
of the resolution and preamble till the
first Wednesday in February next.
Mr. F. SMITH, opposed the motion.
He was prepared to vote now. Not
withstanding the clergy of Philadelphia,
on a former occasion, had denounced all
who voted against abolishing the death
penalty as infidels in a christian land.
Mr. S. W. ROBERTS, stated his rea
son for offering the preamble. He be
lieved that the penal laws ought to be
revised in relation to the death penalty
for many reasons, one of which was the
difficulty of procuring verdicts of con
viction from juries of the country. His
intention was to place himself in a pro
per position before the people. He was
opposed to the infliction of the death
penalty from conscientious convictions
and wished for an opportunity of record
ing his vote directly in accordance with
Mr. BLACK thought the question of
great importance and one which requir
ed profound consideration. It was one
concerning the whole people, and was
not one for the especial consideration of
the bar or any other portion of the com
munity. It was one which was proper
for and belonged to all. He was oppos
ed to taking the vote now, directly on
the question, and he thought the pream
ble was not in accordance with the spir
it of the original resolution.
Mr. BLAIR also opposed the post
ponement. He contended that the vote
on the preamble would be a clear expres
sion of the sense of the House on the
whole matter. He said there would be
no ;Ire in votinp: on the pronniblo only.
and being called on to vote it down at
some subsequent stage of the matter.
The motion to postpone was not a
Mr. DIEHL offered to emend the pre- I
amble, by striking out all after the word
resolved, and inserting "that it is the
opinion of this House, that some action
by this House on the subject of the
death penalty, is desirable."—which was
accepted as a substitute by Mr. S. W.
The question then being on adopting
said preamble, as substituted, the yeas
and nays were called, and were yeas 38,
THURSDAY, Jan. 20, 1818. I
Nothing of general interest transpired
in either House.
Mr. BLAIR presented the memorial
of John McCahen, and others, relating
to the sale of certain real estate. Also,
one for a law relating to the execution of
last wills and testaroents. Also, one for
a rail road from at, or near, Huntingdon
to Broad top mountain.
There has been no important results
transpired in Congress during the pant
week. We clip a few items of interest
from various sources:
THE LOAN.-A bill providing for a
Loan of $18,500,000, was reported by
Mr. Vinton in the House of Representa
tires on Wednesday last, and referred;
to the Committee of the Whole on the'
State of the Union. This is the first
step in an important measure.
In the Senate the discussion on the
Ten regiment Bill is still 'continued.—
On Monday last Mr. BUTLER of South
Carolina, a Locoroco, made nn able
speech on the Bill. He Awed that the
Mexicans had the best title to the cast
bank of the Rio Grande when we march
ed our troops there. He, of course, will
support Mr. Calhoun's poSitions. He
proposes an amendment by which some
thirty men can he added to each compa
ny, now in service, without so vast nit
increase of Executive patronage as the
540 officers, which would be created Lty
the additional regiments, would give the
President. There is some probability
that his amendment may pass.
In a short discussion on Mr. Mangum's
resolution calling far Gen. Scott's plan
about the further prosecution of the war
with Mexico, Gen. Cass declared that he
now thought we might swallow THE
WHOLE OF MEXICO without doing
much harm to our system !! It is thus
that, step by step, the leading Locofocos
are coming into the support ol" What
they at first ridiculed, the absorption of
the whole of Mexico. The resolution
On Tuesday Mr. Badger made a pow
erful speech on the same subject. He
proved the claims set up to our right-to
the Rio Grande to be nonsense, if not
worse. He proved, by documents fur
nished by the President to Congress,
that on our part it was a deliberate
scheme of conquest, and pictured the
injury likely to follow from it, upon our
selves rather than the Mexicans. The
same army that would dictate subjec
tion to the Mexicans would come back
and dictate to this Senate and to Con
gress. He might have said that this is
the case even now.
The Locofocos have refused to pass
Mr. Mangurn's resolution asking for
Scott's plan of the war. There is a de
spatch from Gen. Scott of Sept. IS,
which is in part published among the
documents accompanying the Presi
dent's last annual message. Much of it
is suppressed. Gen. Cuss, however, a
few days since, read a portion which
had been suppressed, stating that Gen.
Scott wanted 50,000 men. It is now
pretty certain that Gen. Scott said, un
less we intended to conquer all Mexico,
and to hold her in subjection, 30,000
men would be sufficient. They now re
fuse to give this letter, even in secret
The President has refused to furnish
Congress with a copy of the instructions
given to Mr. Slidell, our Minister who
was first rejected by Mexico. He is de.
termined to keep them as secret as his
correspondence with Santa Anna.
The Locofocos say the President
should not give these instructions about
Treaties, &c., to Congress. Yet in the
Union of the 4th of October last, we
have published from the State Depart
ment, an authentic copy of the terms on
which Mr. Trist was to act. Why not
let us have the same of Mr. Slidell's.
. SENATE, Jau. 20, The resolution pre
' viously offered by Mr. Mangum, was
!taken up, asking the President for Gen.
Scott's communication to the War De
partment, and for all his plans for pros
-1 ecnting the war, and whether General
Scott's order for fortifying all the im
portant points in Mexico was directed
by the President, which nfter some dis
cussion was adopted.
Mr. Foote then took the floor in favor
of the Ten Regiment Bill, and during
his speech took ground in favor of an
nexing the whole of Mexico.

We clip the following items of news
from the North American:
The Cambria arrived at her dock, at
Jersey City, cm Tuesday night, coming
up the buy in the midst of a heavy gale,
without stopping at Quarantine. She
has had a stormy passage.
By this arrival we have our files of
London papers to the 31st December,
and Liverpool to the Ist instant.
The President's Message was receiv
ed in England by the packet ship Ash
burton, on the morning of the 30th De
cember. It seemed to have created no
sensation, and was regarded as "little
more than a re-echo of the sentiments
pronounced by the President at the in
ception of the war." Some of the Lon
don papers give the document at length.
Ireland continues in the most
condition, although the Lord-Lieu
tenant had lost no time in proclaiming
the Irish Outrage Bill, in the various
districts where crime bud been most
prevalent, and it was hoped that good
results would speedily follow. The re
port 'that the Marquis of Drogheda was
about to leave Ireland, through appre
hensions for his safety, is contradicted.
Threats continued to be rife, however,
against him, as well as many other of 1
Ireland's most benevolent landlords.
