Mr. Editor I am a plain man one of the peo- If pie; and have been since our Hon. Congress met " acting merely the looker-on. I have sometimes been amused and again forced to regret the various modes adopted by our Legislators to secure to themselves both at the Capitol and at home (among their dear constitu- ents) the ephemeral bliss arising from that wonderful renown vvnicii consists in ueuunmig umuuivui um iuwu. Pledged to carry out a system of Retrenchment the members of the present Congress (as appears from their action on the Retrenchment Bill) feel called upon to submit individually their views and plans as to the best mode of arriving at this desired object. Thus we find one learned member descanting most ably upon the propriety of lopping off a Department another for lopping off a Clerk; and others give most cogent and learned reasons in favor of starving those who are so unfortunate as not to be lopped off. In their desire lor destruction in this matter they have over-reach...

C. SONG FOR A MISANTHROPE. " Look on me! there is an order Of mortals on the earth who do become Old in their youth and die ere middle age Without the evidence of warlike death; Some perishing of pleasure some of study Some worn with toil some of mere weariness Some of disease and some of insanity And some of wither'd or broken hearts; For this last is a malady which slays More than are numbjred on the lists of Fate Taking all shapes and bearing many names." Byro.v. I would I were once more a boy Artless and happy as in youth When every day had its own joy. Which seemed immutable as truth ; But no my bark will see n...

' 7 NATIONAL DEBT OF GREAT BRITAIN. The total amount of British National Debt funded at different periods is as follows : In 1828 777476892 or $3721288841. In 1841 766371725 or $3678584280. The Exchequer Bills outstanding- were In 1828 27546850 or $130841537. In 1841 22271020 or $108902030. Making the total debt now existing beside termina- ble annuities no less than $3784486000. The annual interest and charges of the entire debt (besides annuities) were In 1826 26652361 or $127931332. In 1841 24442303 or $121240675. The New York Tribune which gives the above computes the pound sterling at $4 80. Here is a debt which makes our puny obligations hide their diminished head. A debt which the world has never seen equalled and which the tax-ridden peo- ple who labor under its burthen can never lose sight of for a moment. It is brought to their minds in tfie most forcible manner by the increased price of every imported production and the ceaseless call of the tax- gatherer. We cannot appre...

A Way to do Better. The English commercial travellers have become almost proverbial for their love yf srourmajidene: exemplified in their incessant talk ing of the qualities of inns and rightly cooked dishes. he late Mr. L. well known m the commercial room was so notorious in his liking of roast pig for dinner that rather than push forward on a journey to expe- dite business he has been known to prolong his stay at an inn for no better purpose than that of participating in the destruction of a woole choibe litter. In after yeaes Mr. L. got into such sorry circumstances as compelled him sometimes to accept a dinner-invitation proffered in charity from individuals whom he had Formerly met on more equal terms. Une ot these meet- ing Mr. L. one morning accosted him thus "Come and take pot-luck with me to-day if you cannot do better." r. L. assented. On being ushered at the hour ap- winted. into the mansion of his quondam friend and seeing the dinner table set for two only with only a si...

Mr Jones of Gonzales rose again to caution the friends of retrenchment against the course that was be- ing pursued. He said that there were some members there opposed to retrenchment and some who were in favor of parts of the project and that by a frequent con- junction of the two the strength of their united vote was brought to bear upon most of the important items of the bill; and its effect was likely from this cause to be destroyed. He warned them that if they were not on the alert and did not strictly maintain the principle for which they had contended that their victory when achieved would be like the victories of Pyrrhus over the Romans "equivalent to a genteel defeat." Amendment of Mr. Forbes rejected. Mr. Jones of Gonzales moved to amend so as to throw the duties upon the Secretary of War; adopted. The main question being then taken on the adop- tion of the amendment of the Senate resulted as fol- lows: Yeas 24 Nays 11 so the office was abolished. Question on striking out t...

CITY OF" AUSTIN TEXAS. MONDAY DECEMBER 6 1841. "hail angel of light!" SCjIt is with feelings of peculiar satisfaction that we announce to the literary world that our respected con- temporary the "Daily Texian'' has once again ap- peared to mortal vision. Tears of gratification trickle down our cheeks as we are permitted to state that once more it will enlighten the world by its luminous intellectual energies and that again Ave shall be con- vulsed with the brilliancy of its wit the spice of its facetiousness and the varied scintillations of its uni- versal genius. There are few who can appreciate the feelings with which we contemplate this resurrection; for it is coupled with a fear that its finer qualities were never intended for this sublunary existence and that we shall again mourn its untimely dep...

without incurring the immense expense of establishing land-offices in that part of the country and of section- izing the lands. He was therefore in favor of the sub- stitute. ' Mr. Barnett said if the substitute were adopted it would produce confusion as there might be some half dozen locations made upon the .same tract and it would create lawsuits. Mr. Webb said he could not perceive how confusion could be created in the disposition of these lauds by adopting the substitute in lieu of the original bill as it made it the duty of the County Surveyor to survey all the lands located under the scrip which was proposed to be sold; and that officer if he had any regard for his oath would not survey the same land lor two different individuals. As to its producing lawsuits the very ob- ject of the substitute was to prevent them. The ori- ginal bill authorized all the lands to be sectionized and sold whether there were any good titles upon it or not : and if under the operation of that bill ...

Mr. Robinson moved that the resolutions for impeach- ment be made the special order of the day for Thurs- day next at 11 o'clock. Carried. On motion of Mr. Wood the joint resolution for the recall of the Navy was taken up. Mr. Robinson moved to defer its consideration to an- other day because he thought the matter had already assumed a more important and more solemn appear- ance than was originally contemplated in consequence of the report of the committee upon the resolution rela- tive to the Santa Fe expedition ; because if a commit- tee were appointed to draft articles of impeachment of the Executive his whole official conduct would be be- fore them and all illegal acts of his would be the sub- ject of those articles.

l- the part of some of the most talented members of the House tolniintain that functionary to the utmost. v The question on the recalling the navy which would have excited animated discussion will verge in this ' and we think there will be some fine speaking before the matter is concluded. Then there are the measures to be proposed by the new administration recom- mendations of a policy different from that of the last which will have of course its supporters and Its oppo- nents.

right of the Consultation to make treaties of peace was declared upon and secured by the laws of nations. (He would read from Kent's Commentaries to prove his position.) The doctrine then. Sir. here laid down shows clearly" that the Consultation-had the right nay the authority for which ho had contended. That body not only made treaties of peace but declared war. It declared a war and drove from without our limits the invading enemy the country's common foe ; and that body too Sir has been sustained in both ; sustained by the people's representatives in General Convention in 1836 when they declared their Independence and by the people themselves when they at the ballot-box in the same year ratified it. He would ask honorable gentlemen then where was the necessity of such an amendment as that under consideration ? where the necessity of such minute distinctions as had been made and taken on this floor I For himself he could answer the question.

He said the feelings of the President had noth ing to do with this matter; he would like to see the matter discussed upon its merits. He said if the President had so acted as to subject him to impeachment the case would soon be before the House; he for one did not be- lieve the President had so acted. Mr. Darnell was disposed to sustain his preamble; when he had first consented to strike it out it was at the request of other gentlemen and not from any dis- position of his to avoid responsibility. Mr. Williamson was one of the committee who re- ported those resolutions and he was in favor of striking out the preamble and always had been in the commit- tee and he hoped gentlemen woeld not consider him as shrinking or equivocating; he was and always had been disposed to meet the President on the ground designated in his message where he says that if Con- gress did not appr...
