made against Mr. Ball, by the Canal Commis

had a right to expect the disclosure of some
oObrrnous derilection "or duty on his yak.'
The 'Pa. Telegraph informs us that the as
Sounding facts disclosed by the evidenc'e, are,
that . the Messrs. Norris were paid a cer-'
tain draft at the Barrisburg bank; 'in fiinds Upon
'which they were obliged to submit to a loss of
three-eighths per cent., in the Way of exchange,
end that Masers. J. P. Anderson and Jenkins
were aubjecfed to delay in drawing the money
upon certain orders, one for a space of two
weeks, and the other for a epace of about six
weeks; while it .is also in evidence that the
long delay in cashing the latter, must ha i •e aris
en from the fact, that it was not again present- ,
ed at the Treasury, in the mean time, for pay
ment, and could not, therefore, have been soon
er paid. It will also be observed,, that both
Anderson and Jenkins depose, that they have al
ready drawn the full amount of the appropria-
Ilona to their divisions, far the fiscal year 1810,
though it does sot end until the Ist of May next.
NCITS of the facts. yet proved, establish any
thing like a deriier Goo of duty on the part of
Mr. Ball. The reason assigned for the delay,
4n every case, was a just and a proper one. It
wasiunirormly, either that there was so money
jn the Treasury at the time, or else that he did

Slavery Meeting in Philadelpitiai

Deplorable State of Affairs in Wash.
We are beginning to reap some of the bitter
fruits of the Mexican War and the acquisition of
more Territory. Our national Congress, in
stead as heretofore of meeting and legislating
for. the public interests, is now in a State 9f an.
archy. A large body of 'the members are lrOund •
to each other to resiSt all. legislation until their
sectional notions prevail. Disunion is daily ad
vocated in both ends of the Capitol. And seri
ous apprehensions are none entertained that blood
will fq 071 fie w 011, the fioqr of Congress This
deplorable state df thMis.; all Mutit,now admit,
is fairly harielitle to the Territorial acquisi
tion consequent upon the Mexican War. The
following extruct from the Washington corres
pondent of the North American, explains itself:
• .....
Wlrti Mr: Foote introduced his mo
tion yesterday, to refer his resolution
proposing territorial governments for
California, Deseret and New Mexico, to
a select committee of thirteen, he accom
panied it with a certain strain of men
ace and grave admonition, which de
serves some attention and which I fare
bore from noticing at the time, in ordor
to give bib the advantage of revising
his remarks. I find in the Union of this
morning the following passage. After
speaking of, the nedeSdity of immediate
action on the subject of .slavery; he
says: "So help me Heaven, if nothing
is done this week, there will occur Cir.;
cOmstances which, in my 'opinion, must
inevitably take place, the nature. of
which 1 will not more than allude to,
which will render all compromise im
practicable. I know the facts to which
have alluded." A plain translation is
easily made. Gov. Doty's resolution
inStructing.the Committee on Territories
to report a bill for the admission of Cal.
ifornia with her present constitution and
boundaries, will come tip on Monday,
& the scenes which occurred a fortnight
ago will be renewed under more aggra
vating circumstances. It is by rid Means
improbable that violence may be resor
ted to on that occasion, or that under the
influence of passion and irritation, scenes
may occur which may be attended With
the most lamentable consequences.—
Whatever may be the impression abroad
or however much a portion of the press
may labor to distort the facts, it is un
doubtedly trite that a large number of
inernbers in the House go armed, and
that may have been induced to prepare
themselves for a sudden contingency
who have heretofore abhorred the prac
tice of wearing concealed weapons. If
I was at liberty to tell all that I really
know on this subject, I could astound the
public with the disclosure of facts which
are hardly suspected even here, except
among the initiated. A deliberate plan
was formed only three . days ago, to pro
voke a personal rencontre on the floor,
and under circumstances which must
belie been followed with bloodshed. The
parties consulted, advised postponement,
and the scene was saved. Bia while this
disposition exists, and is encouraged by
being allowed to be the topic of Eonsul
tation, it is easy to see that a collision
may occur at any moment.
Excitement at Frederick.
SINGULAR CASE.—There has been con
siderable excitement at Frederick, Md.
in regard to the sudden death of a son
of Mr. George A. Cole. A correspon
dent of the tjagerstown Mail says
Alter being kept for the period of four
days; he was placed in Mr. Hart's vault,
in the Lutheran el'ave-yard, with the lid
of his 'coffin open, as there were very
seirous doubts. whether or not ho was in
a trance. 'His disease, the doctors say,
was the erysipelas, the only indication
of which was a small pimple on his lip,
causing much swelling, and of which,
in the short space of three days, he died.
Many persons have daily visited hiS re.;
main, and all express their doubts.—
Though in this state for more than two
weeks, his cheeks are as rosy and fresh
as *then in good health ; his lips, at first
so'ineWlmt blue, notv have a very natural
and life-like color, and his limbs are as
pliant as ever ; not having the rigidity of
death at all—his eyes are not at all sunk.
en, but natural as when in robust health.
There is not, as yet i the least appear
ance of decay, and no offensive smell.--
His parents visit him daily, to aseertalif
if any change has taken place, either
for better or worse. Though doctors
say he is dead, many persons in the
community doubt it. Doctors are not
infallible. He was fifteen or sixteen
years of age, fine looking and intelligent.
On Sunday ho was in excellent health,
enjoying himself with his companions ;
on Wednesday night lie was declared
a corpse. Such is life:

the improved condition of commerce
and manufactures—regrets the difficid

their tenants—recommends legislation
not deferred in the matter.
" In conclusion, her majesty hopes
and ,believes, that by cotnbining,liberty
with order--by preserving what is val
uable and amending what is defective,
the legidature will sustain the public
institutions as the abode and the shelter
of a free and happy people."
As anticipated from the movement re•
cently going on for the revival of the
protective duties on corn, an amendment
to the address from the houses of par•
!lament, was moved in the commons by
•Sir John Folope, and in tilt lords by Lord
Standhroolce. The amendment was to
the following effect :
" We rregret, however, to be compel
led huririblyto represent to your mnjes
ty that ih "many 'parts of the United
Itiligdom,ancl especially in Ireland, the
various classes oryour majesty's 'sub
jects connected with the cultivation of
the soil, are laboring under severe dis
tress, mainly applicable, in cir.opinion,
to recent legislative enactments, aggra
vated by the pressure of local taxation.
This amendment was lost in both Hou
ses by an overwhelming Majority. ,
Intelligence from Ireland is still more
heart-rending. Cultivation seems stag
nant, and traders more depressed than
in the first of her sufferings. The tide
of emigration to the United States has
again set, but unfortunately for the peo
ple this means is not left now to escape
from local tyranny and destitution. The
neighborhood of Liverpool has been vis
ited during the days of Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday, with the most se
