In the louse, Mr. Adams, of Massachu setts-asked and-obtained leave to make the following statement,.which is deemed here of vast importance. He stated that he was not an abolitionist in any sense of that term. He asserted that he had never ..been, and was not now, in favor of the- abo Jition of slavery in the District of Columbia, If such a bill were brought before Co -gress, he would vote against it. He said he had read every thingthathad been written in favor of -the abolition of slavery in the District by Congress, and he had maturely weighed the subject, and the result as a deliberate and strong conviction of its inex itency..

The following spirited lines from the No ickerboeker are from the pen of W. G. Simms, Esq. the popular novelist: HATTEtAS 'By these soft breezes, by the odorous breath From groves of pine. I know that we have past The stormy cape!' Exclaiming thus, I leapt From the close cabin to the deck, with speed, And there, his wrath subdued, his ire at rest, Lay the fierce god of cloudy Hatteras, At length, along the deep. Our vessel ran Beside him, fearless; and the forms that oft Had trembled at the story of his storms, Look'd on him without dread. Yet.in his sleep, The sun down-blazing on his old grey bead, There was a moody murmur of his waves. That spoke of ruthless power. and bade us fly To our far homes, with wings of moving fear, Not less than hope. We might not loiter long. Like thoughtless birds, improvident of home. And wand'ring. by the sunlight still seduced. O'er treacherous billows. No half despot he, To spare in mercy in his wrathful hour. A thousand miles, along his sandy couc...

far less than it would be, should the pre sen rsystem be continued. But there may be some who may admit thia to be true, and yet object that the advantages which I anticipate from, the measure would be purchased, on the ppjof the old States, at too great i sacrifice. It would be pre mature to undertake to answer this objec tion before it is ascertained what portion of the proceeds should he left to the States, and what paid over to the Government; and this cannot be done till after a labori ous investigation, as has been stated. All I maintain at present is, that. the portion allotted to the States should be not only just and liberal, but such as would inter est them in preserving the arrangement. Thus far it would be obviously the interests of both parties, as has been shown In the meantime, I have suggested an equal division of the proceeds, under the belief -that it would be satisfactory to the new States, and probably not far from the di vision which a rigid investigation would ...

FOR THE ADVERTISER. "Her's was a life pure and serene, Mild as the summors breeze, Pleasant as the air of evening That floats among the trees." With prospects bright, on future life, She held a vig'rous claim, When, "in the twinkling of an eye," The great destroyer came. Tier hours of racking pain, tho' few, -With fortitude she bore, Then closed her eyes, and hade adieu, To pains she'll feel no more. Tho' worms destroy her mould'ring flesh, Beneath the silent soi, Her happy soul, divinely fresh, Will soar away to God. "Peaceful be her silent slumber, Laid in the grave so low; On earth no more she'll join our number, No more our sona will know." 'Twas her eternal gain to leave us, The lots we deeply feel; But 0! 'tis God that doth bereave us, He'll all our sorrows heal. "Yet once again, we hope to meet her, When from this life we've fled, There in Henven, with joy we'll greet her. Where ne'er a tear is shed." "Still green be the turf above thee, Friend of my better days; flere none k...

Domestic Nvws. EXTRACTS From the Report of the Committec of"fays and Means, on the state of the Treasury tid the erpenditures oJ the Government, P"vmiitted by Mr. Vambreleng, to the H. of Representatives, January 24, 1839. By the 63d rule of the House of Repre sentatives, it is made the duty of the Com mittee on Ways and Means to "inquire into the state of the revenue and expeudi tre, and to report, from time to time,their opition thereon." The condition of our fitances renders the discharge of this duty particnlarly necessary at the pre'enlt time. Our extraordiniary expenditures have, within a few years, been unavoidably large,and our revenue has rapidly declined since 1836. In that year our income for customs and lands was more than forty eight millions; in 1837 (including the post poned bonds) it was about twenty-lour millions; and for the past year (deducting the postponed bonds) anout fourteen mtl lions and a half. The revival of trade will increase the revenue both from custom...
