Exciting Discussion on the Mexi
can Indemnity Bill.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17, 1849
Mr Vinton, of Ohio, offered a resole
tion to terminate the debate on the Mex
ican indemnity bill at two o'clock on
Mr. Tombs, of Georgia, moved to
amend the resolution; by substituting
Monday next ,for Wednesday ; upon
which the yens and nays were ordered.
The amendment was carried—yeas
82, nays 73. The resolution was then
On motion of Mr. Rockwell, the house
then went into Committee of the whole,
Mr. Cabell, of Florida, chairman, and
took up the Mexican indemnity bill.
Mr. Buckner, of Kentucky, then rose
and addressed the committee on the
slavery question arid the Mexican war
in general, dwelling particularly upon
.the territorial view of the subject, and
'advocating conservative doctrines. He
Contended that slavery would never go
to California—that Congress had power,
find ought tb eiercise it; to keep slave
1y out of the new ttirritories.
Mr: Stephens, of Georgia, followed,
With his peculiarly clear and Shrill voice
find decided tone, contending against all
legislation fOr California, and maintain
ing that two thirds of the Senate bed
nd poWer to compel the House to vote
appropriations for the purchase of ter
ritories. He explained what he consid
ered the rights of the House, and said
that when the principle should be estab
lished that the American House of Rep
resntutives should obey only the behest I
of the President and the Smite, neither
the Union. nor the Government, nor any
thing else would be worth preserving.
Establish this principle, that whatever
the President and Senate agree upon,
the House must yield to—make this the
doctrine of the hind—then, with n cor
rupt Execntive and a false Senate, the
people might be sold—a standing army
might be permanently stationed in Cal
ifornia, and supported in the teeth of
the constitution, which declares that it
shall not be taised for over two years—
a treaty with New Grenada might be
framed, giving five, ten, or fifty millions
' for the right of way across the lath
tnns. He condemned all such doctrine.
Mr. Rhett, of South Carolina, here
begged leave to assure the honorable
gentleman that nobody on his side of
the house had controverted the doctrine
which he was contending for.
Mr. Stephens said it had not been
controverted and the gentleman knew
it ; and he felt ashamed that he was
obliged to stand up for it, such was the
degeneracy of the times. He then pro
• ceeded to denounce the whole course of
▪ the present administration as outrage
ous and unconstitutional, and not a whit
better than that of a brigand or a
Charles 11, to whose history he referred.
He pictured our prospects and happi
ness : the Oreg on question settled and
Texas annexe d ; with no territory to
contend about any longer—our career
of glory might have been onward and
f, upward. Nothing but the foul spirit of
the infernal regions could have stirred
up the dark catalogue of usurpations and
aggressions which followed by the act
of the Executive. He referred to the
talk about expunging from the journal
the declaration that the Execntive un
constitutionally brought ou the war. In
his view, it would be if ;ong tune before
ythat solemn truth would be expunged.
He would never vote a dollar towards
paying for the territory from which his
people were to be excluded. Mexico
. has been properly denominated by a
,Senator, the forbidden fruit, and yet
'• that Senator took a bite of it. He re
plied to the President's argument rela
tive to the protocol, recapitulating the
cheat which the President had practiced
by fraud and deception on the Oregon
question, on Mexico, on Senator Benton
and on Mr. Wilmot, whose proviso he
had once promised to approve, and last
ly, and above all, the American peo
The galleries of the House were much
crowded, to-day, and all listened to the
eloquent and thrilling speech of the dis
- tinguished representative front Georgia
• with marked attention.
Mr. Lahm, of Ohio, followed, and sur
veyed the Northern side of the question
of Slavery. He quoted several British
-precedents and legal decisions, and con
) troverted the assumption that slaves are
," property. He expaciated upon the state
• of the slave reprentation at the Som. li,
and opposed the movements and 1 ). in
ciples of the abolitionists. This party
had power in the South, but they never
could have in the North. He believed
they were the instruments of some good
and much evil. He replied to the South
ern address, which had recently been
put forth. Mr. L. having concluded,
Mr. McClelland, of Michigan, obtained
the floor, but yielded to
Mr. Wilmot of Pennsylvania, who de
tailed a conversation which he held
with President Polk, two sessions ago,
in which the President spoke of the
three million appropriation to effect a
peace with Mexico, and expressed the
.• that a slavery restriction clause
should be attached to the bill. The Pres
ident in that conversation, assured the
speaker, that if he would introduce a
joint resolution containing the proviso
that slavery should not exist in any ter
ritory which might be acquired from
Mexico, it would be acceptable even to
Msssissippi ; and he urged him to bring
It fortfard in that form. Mr. Wilmot
said, he regretted that the matter had
been alluded to, simply because ho did
not wish to be considered a retailer of
private consultations—not for any other
reason. He was not disposed to shun
responsibility ; he concluded ; before
God, this was substantially what the
Mr. McClelland now resumed the floor
and proceeded with a speech of some
ability, chiefly npon the slavhey ques
tion, and its history in connection with
the Northwestern territory question.
He stated his objections to the compro
mise bill of the last session, and said
that the sorthern members cunningly
devised bills for the new territories so
as to avoid a' decisive vote by Congress
prohibiting slavery there:
Mr. Thompson ; of Kentucky, spoke
for an hour, discussing the Tariff and
Slavery question, eschewing the dead
Bank, arid foreshadowing that the in
coming administration would satisfy
the people with regard to all these great
questions. He was opposed to the abo
lition of slavery in the District of Col
main. He pictured the tonseqUeote
which, he believed, would inevitably
ensue, and pronounced the proposition
preposterous. He discussed the terri
torial questibn; ritid maintain that Con
gress should not shrink from the respon
sibility of passing the necersary laws
for the government of new territories.
His conclusion was eloquent and effec
tive, eulogistic of the patriotic popula
tion of both the North and the South.
Mr. Jenkins of New York, followed.
The discussion was continued by
Messrs. John A. Rockwell, Ficklen,
Chrisfield and others, until after ten
o'clock, when the House adjourned.
Examination of Her
BALTIMORE, Feb. 17
Hycr was brought before the Court at
10 o'clock this morning. His counsel
were Robert M'Lean and Collins Lee,
Esqrs. The investigation occupied the
attention of the court until half-past
one o'clock, P. M.—The court room was
densely crowded with eagor spectators,
and outsidethere was an immense throng
unable to gain admittance, and eager
to learn all that was going on within.
The hearing having been concluded, the
court pronounced him guilty of fighting,
and demanded bail in his own recogni
zance for $2OOO, and by others for 1000.
Messrs. Leon Dyer, Wm. Turner and
Wm. Price went as the required securi
ty. Hyer is now at liberty and with
his family at the United States Hotel.
Great enthusiasm prevails in his favor.
He looks well and shows no marks of
rough handling, except that one of his
eyes is slightly blackened. There is
some talk of his giving a sparring ex
htbition in one of our theatres before he
leaves the city.
Tac•rn is SrnANGs, &C.-The last Hannible
Journal has a fearful story, to the effect that a
Mr. Weatherford, sheriff of Schuyler county,
Missouri, conceiving a design to cheat the com
monwealth out of sonic $2,200 which he had
collected, left the money in the care of his wife
part in silver and part in paper, with the decla
ration that he would be gone several"days, and
enjoined upon her that she should permit no one
to stay all night at the house during his absence.
"At night a traveller, rather an aged
man, applied for entertainment. The
woman, at first refusing under instruc
tions of her husband, was finally persua
ded to permit him to remain. About 11
or 12 o'clock, the same night, some per
sons demanded entrance into the house,
and upon being permitted to come in,
they were found to be disguised as ne
groes, and demanded of the woman mon
ey, which they said they knew was in
the house. The woman handed them
the paper money. They told her theie
was also silver money, which she must
surrender. She replied she would go
up stairs (where the traveller was sleep
ing) and get it. She informed the old
gentleman of the state of things below.
He told her to take one of the two
pistols he had—to put the money into
her apron, with the pistol concealed be
hind it, and when either of the robbers
came forward to take it, to fire, and he
would save another of them with the
remaining pistol. She did as she was
instructed, and one of the men fell
dead at her feet. The old man fired
and killed another, and the third made
his escape. Upon examination, it was
found that the guilty husband had; fallen
by the hand of his own wife! Thus it
is that a mysterious Providence, even in
this world, meets out punishment to
those who transgress His laws.
[l:r A new butter churn is described in the
New York Tribune. It says :
The milk is churned by a process of
suction exercised by revolving buckets,
which are turned by a handle to which
they are attached. By this operation
the frothy substance of the milk is for
ced by the chemical action of the air
into a mass—thus forming the butter.
The great advantages which this meth
od possesses over the ordinary churn,
are in the saving of time and labor, and
an increase in the quaiitity of butter.—
The time occupied is not more than two
or three minutes, and milk can be churn
ed at nny degree of temperature, from
46 deg. to 65.

REVIVAL Of MORMONISM IN MISIOURI.-
Zion's Harbinger and Baneemy's Organ
is the title of a new Mormon paper,
published at St. Louis, Mo. The first
number contains Beneemy's Proclama
to the latter day saints, in which
this new Mormon prophet predicts many
wonderful things—among others, that
"The Lord is about to restore the King
dom of Israel, and commands a temple
to be built in Independence, itiekstilt
county Mo., in which he will establish
schools for the instruction of the rem•
nant of Joseph (whose land the Gentiles
inhabit,) who arc soon again to become
the proprietors of the soil." Baneemy
says that if the President elect, the
Gay rnors of the several states, and oth
er subordinate rulers, will not compel
the State of Missouri to restore the
lands wrongly wrested from the Saints,
they shall be cursed, cut off, and cast
into outer darkness. He predicts, also,
a Dissolution of the Union as a conse
quence of the rejection of these com
mandments, and that South Carolina
ivill first break out in rebellion—after
wards the whole South, in a fierce and
bloody war with the North. So intent
Will the South be, he says; to conquer
their Northern brethren, that they will
inarshall the slaves for war, who will in
many instances, tune their weapons
upon their own masters. Then the south
finding their weakness; will Call on
Great Britain for aid, the effect of the
response will be a general European
war ; and finally, if the people shall ne
glect and disobey, the war will be con•
tinued—pestilence famine and desolation
will prevail—until few of the refeacto
ry Gentiles will be left in the land. The
remnant of Jacob will then go through
the Irnd, and tear the remainder of the
Gentiles in pieces. After a very terri
ble tirade against the nations of the
Earth, Baneemy winds tip his long pro
nunciamento by modestly requesting
and requiring all political and religious
editors to give it an insertion in their
columns. Of course this restoration of
the Saints, destruction of disobedient
Gentiles and the rebuilding of the tem
ple, cannot be accomplished without
money and workmen : therefore Banco

GOOD ADvicE.l—John H. Prentiss, in his re
cent valedistory on retireing from the editorial
chair, which he had filled for FORTY-ONE TEARS,
has the following
"No man should be without a well
conducted newspaper ; he is fnr behind
the spirit of the age unless he reads
one; is not upon equa4 footing with his
fellow man who enjoys such advantage,
and is disregardful of his duty to Isis
fancily, in not affording them an oppor
tunity of acquiring a knowledge of what
is passing in the world, at the cheapest
possible teaching. Show me a faintly
without a newspaper, and I venture to
say that there will be manifest ►n that
family a want of amenity of manners
and indications of ignorance, most stri
kingly in contrast with the neighbor
who allows himself snch a rational in
dulgence. Young men, especial', should
read newspapers. If I were a boy, even
of 12 years, I would read a newspaper
weekly, though I had to work by torch
light to earn money enough to pay for
it. The boy who reads well will learn
to think and analyze, and if so, he will
be almoft sure to make a man of himself,
bating vicious indulgences, which read
ing is calculated to beget a taste for."
Meg BENToN.—It seems that an oppo
sition to this distinguished Senator has
arisen in his own State ; and that the
war between the parties, elegantly de
nominated the "Hands," and "
has assumed an aspect so formidable as
to render it necessary that " Old Bul
lion," should once again, visit the State
and take the stump. He will doubtless
maintain his supremacy in Missouri, and
we will not regret his triumph. Wide.
ly as we ditTer from him in almost eve
ry political subject, the loss of his ex
tensive knowledge, enlarged experience
and bold, practical intellect would be
seriously felt in the Senate. if we must
have a political foe from Missouri, we
would prefer one whose talents and high
standing will maintain the elevated rep
utation of the United States Senate.
