The House has shown no favor to the various propositions for providing for the relief of the suffering poor of Ireland. Mr. Crittenden brought forward his bill, to day, but it was not received. Mr. C's. bill appropriates half a million of dollars for the purchase and transportation of p:o visions for the relief of the people of Ire land and Scotland. After some eloquent remarks in its support, it was laid aside. Mr. Hannegan spoke to-day in favor of =the'Three Million Bill. Mr. Sovier gave notice that he would to-morrow, insist on 'taking the vote. It is certainly time that 'it should be disposed of. It is not well understood as yet, whether the bill is to pass or not, but it cannot succeed without the support of Mr. Calhoun and some of bis friends. From the South-Carolinian.

EDGEFIELD C. H. VED4ESDAY, MARCrH 10, 1817 Mr. Batter's Speech.-We devote this week a considerable portion of our paper to the ex cellent Speech of the Hon. A. P. BU-LRa, Uited States Senator flom South Carolina, on the "Thaee Million Bill." We call particu tar attention to the argument of Judge B., and his vindication of the right of the South to per fect-equality with the free States. Of one thing we are assured, that when the argument is ox bausted, the South will, at all hazards, assert and maintain her privileges and equal rights with the other portions of the confederacy. The first week of the Court of Common Pleas closed on Saturday last. Some cases of considerable importance were tried, and others were-postponed. On the third of this month W. M. West, who was charged with stealing a negro, was tried, and after a protracted in vestigation of his case, he was acquitted. The Hon. John C.

From me Cha-'s. Mercury. THIE COTTON CATERPILLAR. Mr. Editor.-In the Temperance Advocate of a recent date, which I have unfortunately misplaced, I noticed a communication of the venerable Thom as Spalding, of Georgia, dated in Janu ary in relation to the cocoon of the Cotton Caterpillar, with which his ne groes had furnished him. It wouldseem that from analogical reasoning alone, he had inferred, that every one of this great for of our favorite staple, did not annually perish. In my memoir on the Cotton Plant, I expressed a similar opinion, and ad verted to facts which seemed to confirm it. About a month ago, an accurate .observer of this place stated to me, that a lava had been found in the Cotton he was them preparing for market, which however, in consequence of a very sud den and unfavorable change in the weather, survived only a few days. Subsequently he put into my hands two insects about a halt an inch long, and of a dark, dirty color, discovered in the same situation as the f...
