Tire house again ref rived itfelfinlo a committee of the whole on the bill f-.p ----phmeotary to the slt fixing the naval jx ace dlublifiiment. “ Much difeuffion took place on the details of this bill, and particularly on augmenting the number of officers be yond the number fixed by the aft of ißot. Various motions were made to reject the parts ot the bill having this effeft, as we!! as to make an appropria tion sot building frigates to replace the Philadelphia and General Greene ; all of which were disagreed to—-whea the bill was read a third time. Mr. Chandler spoke in favor of, and MefTrs. J. Clay and ‘J- Randtfph again!! its passage, which was carried —Vea6 58 Nays 28. Saturday, April I (j.

The bill is coafcquently loft. The house went into a committee of ihe whole on the bill authorifing the set tlement of the accounts of William Ea ton.

AfRIL 21. The mod important measures adopt j cd this day were j The passage of a bill lor continuing j until the end of the next fiffion the Me jditerrancan fund, d,/tonnetied from the j repeal of the fait tax, the Senate having [adhered ta their disagreement to the last F’bjcdt of the bill. j I’he passage of the naval peace dia | blifemeut bill. j The passage of a bill for the tetnpora {iy relief of Harriet Caramalli, allowing j him 2,400 dollars. | Ihe paffagi of the bill for the pay ment of all the witntlfes summoned on the trial of judge Chafe—the house of Representatives having receded from ‘their amendment. The indefinite postponement of the i report of the committee of enoviiry on j ithe official conduit of Gideon Grc 7 , l’oft Mailer General But that ku line is, which cxJ-.-J ; . t attention, mingled with, perhap , l . ,- n ing warmth, was the prtfentaiion by !r. Quincy of two memorial: , one Sa mutl G. Ogden, the other from William Smith, of the city ofNew-Yo k. 1 he memorials arc very long, and give a minute detail of the circutnftances al leged to have attended the expedition of Miranda ; acknowledge the participa tion of the memoriaiit!9 in the cuter prize ; and declare it to have been tticir impression that the expedition \va3 coun tenanced by the implied fanilion of the president and lecretary of state. The memorialills further complain of the un just and illegal proceedings of the circuit court ot Ntw-Yoik. The memorials are couched in language uncon monly a crimonious, and alcribe to the public a gentn unworthy end impure motives. After the reading of these memorials an intert fling debate ensued, whose length forbids its insertion iu this day’s paper. We ffinll only, at present, at tempt a brief (ketch, referring its full detail for a future paper. Mr. Lyon repiobatcd the style and | contents of the petition, and moved that the petitionees iliould have leave to with draw their petition. Mr. lliltiiimt, of New-York, in- veightd in terms of tlrong indignation, ngainft the nature and teudancy of the attempt. He pronounced it unprece dented, while a prosecution was car am ju due, tor the accused to come forward, and attempt to wrcll their case from a legal irih unal ; declared his total dilbclicf of the charges criminating the executive, and spoke with the greaidl emphatis of the enormiiy of the effort ol men thus htuated to uidemiuate fulpieion with re gard to the m< lives of the executive go vernmeut, and laid it was ridiculous to imagine tha* any legiflitive enquiry could be made on the very lall day ot the fe*. lion. Nr. Quincy rose to explain. He said j he deemed it his duty to prelent the me* ; mortals, dilclaimed all intention to call a ’ cenfurr on the adminillration ; but he j thought, coniidering the fails alledged hy the memorialills, it was pioper to make an enquiry ; and added that from circumiianccs known by gentlemen on the door, the executive had been advised ot the fitting out of the Leander time e nough to have ■prevented her fading- Mr. Quincy was followed by MelTrs. S i.tile, and Rhea ofTenneifee, who dc* j lltvcrcd opininn* nearly the fame with ■ tii; ot Mr. Williams, ?>fr. ffatlfim then rose, ‘• . pronoun ced the memorial! a liffue of fcluhooda snd calumnies bofely intended to defame the government, and denied that the ex ecutive had pofteffed the iuformatiou da ted by Mr. Quincy. After a tew remarks from Meflrs. Mumfoid, Mailers, and Bidweil, Mr. Early offered the following refolutton. Refulvea, T’hat the charges contained in the memorials of S. G. Ogden and William Smith are, in the opinion of ‘ this house, unfupnorted by any ! which in the lead degree criminates the I executive government of tins country— ! that the said memorials appear to have j been preiented at a time and under cir- j cumftances insidiously calculated to excite 1 unjust suspicions in the minds of the good j people of this nation again!! the existing administration of the general government —and that it would be highly improper hi this house to take any Hep which might influence or prejudice a cause now depending in a legal tribunal of the U. S.—therefore, Resolved, that said memo rials be by the desk of this house retur- ned to those from whom they came. Mr. Clark required the previous question, which was taken by Y r eas and Nays, as follows : “ fhatl the main ques tion be now pu.”—Yeas 74— Nays 13. The question was then taken by yeas and nays on the fcvrral members of the resolution as divided by dailies— On agreeing to the Ift member, tlie Yeas were 75 —Nays 8. 2d Yeas 70 —Nays 13* 3d— Yeas 84 —No Nays. iall—— Yeat 71 —Nays 14. We ffiall not retrain from exprefling our fatisfaftion at the completely abor tive iflue of this miserable attempt, view ed either relatively to time or substance, to impair the confidence of the peop'e in the purity of the motives and the fair nefß et the conduit of the executive, and particularly of the president and secretary of llate. Tlie objedt was undoubtedly to sow suspicion, to fcattcr misrepresen tation, to call a cloud over the fair fame of men whose names and fcrvlees have be come identified with republican princi ples. But the poison has been met by its antidote, and the blow menaced at them has recoiled with double, with o veiwhclming force 01 the heads ol its authors. The attempt has extorted from the Reprefentativts of the people a vote of confidence, alrnoft unparraiied in the annals of legifiativc bodies—a vote of fcvaMy to thirteen.

NEW.YORK, April 16. Onr corrtfpondent at the city cf Walhicgtoti, has forwarded to 11s, for publication in the Mercantile Advertiler, the SPEECH of the hnn. G. G. Mum xorp, in the house of repreferiativts ot the United States, on the 14th March, on the lubjeCt of Brititli fpoliatior.a. “ Mr. C'rtirmin —lt is with great ■ t'.iiiiJence 1 rife to fptak on th ; * qncs- I lot.

Sir, juo not with to ex'enuatc thecondudof any nation. I hare no predc'idion for one foreign nation more then another. I iliall endeavor to speak the language of an independent Ameri can. Sir, I had indulged a hope that the ninth congress of the United States, had aflcmbled u> deliberate on the morr.eti tiious affairs of their country, as Ameri cana ; but, fir, it gives me pain, and 1 rrgret extremely to fee gentlemen so far forget the interests of their own country lin defending the pretended rights of o thers. That there should be a difference of opinion refpeding their own regular tions, was to be expeded : but when your lawful commerce ia attacked, by what the honorable gentleman from Vir ginia so emphatically terms “ the Levia. than of the ocean and attacked too i contrary to their own acknowledged } principles, as laid down in the concs t pondence between your late worthy j miniller, Mr. King, and the British min uter, lord Hawkdbury, I beg leave to call on the clerk to read that part of the B lion memorial which relates to that correspondence. £i ne clerk read the article.") This is 110 fidion, fir ; it is a mere matter of fad. After all this, I mull confefs 1 am affonifhed to find gentlemen in an American congress palliating the ixpreffment of our lcamen and the in cileriminats condemnation of our vcffela and cargoes. Are we prepared to pre ierit an humble aidreis to his raoft gra cious inajefly on the throne, praying he would Youchl afe to take us into his holy keeping, pardon our former tranfgres— lions, and accept of us as leige iubi.ds who have erred from the right way ? No, Sir; wc arc not coionifts, we arc an independent nation. Y our ads and laws iptak of thirty years independence ; I wife we could 1 or.qocr our prejudice* as easily as we did our enemies. Shall we never get rid of the idea of colonift* and dependants on Great Britain ? I fnall now commence ray obfervatiom on our unfortunate fellow citizens in Britife bondage j and, in answer to the honorable gentleman from Maryland, whom I very much refped, do frankly acknowledge that amongl! ail the peti tions presented to you, by the merchants of the United States, taere is not one word about our impressed featnen, Sa lem and another port excepted. But, fir, I beg leave to inform this committee-, and that honorable gentleman, that be fore we enter our vt ffJs at the cutlora house, we are called upon to witness the recording of this talc of human woe be fore a notary public, Rating all the fea< itnprcli’ed during the voyege. This is immediately tranunitted to the secreta ry of ilate, fur the correftnefs of which, 1 refer you to the document from inat department now on your table. Sir, is it decorous, 16 it candid, is it Liberal, is it refpeftful to, to impute luch unworthy motives to the merchant* as wc heard expressed on this floor ? they are men, hr ; and I believe candor wiif allow them their share of fenlibility, and that they fympathife for fuff.ring human ity as much a# a planter, a farmer, a law. yer, or any ether clnfs of the community. Sir, 1 feel as much as any man for the bufferings of this meritorious class of ci tizens, having been an eye witnefj to the barbarous treatment inflicted by tp e cers of the British government, o[l oni , of them. lie was iafhed to a f - a ffold on the gunwale of a boat, and w hipp-ti ihip to fliip, until he had reC eiv and five hundred Ufh:. ! !

There is but cne , f ir . de. ™ a “ d for the p3 (l, an d _ rc moke 7 our flag P ro *eft your citi z-n5 > at lead on the high fens, the com* n ‘° 1 road of all nations. Your merchants can insure their property a gainst this “ Leviathan of the ocean,” but there is no alternative for the poor faiior—he is inevitably doomed to cruel slivery. I now come to fpcak of foreign na tions. We are told that the American merchants cover Gpanifn property. This may be the case : I believe it. But it is to a very limited amount. The Span ifn merchants have little capital at present to dil'pofe of. Their government owes them coulidcrable sums of money, and the paper currency of that government is at such a difeount (I believe from 40 to 50 per cent.) that they are not able to extend their commerce, if they were ever so much disposed to do so. Refprfting the French merchants, a great proportion of them in France are bankrupts in consequence of heavy tp.x es, contributions, forced loans, and all the impositions of imperial ingenuity. That country depends not on commerce for ber revenue ; she collefts one hun dred and twenty millions of dollars per annum, of which twenty millions only are levied upon commerce, being et ten per sent, on the whole revenue. Their merchants have it cot in their power t< extend their bufinef* for w-ntof a capi tal, which is a fnft that will be acknow ledged by all commercial men. They are by no means the favorites of (lie em peror ; he grants them no indulgences, of which the late trac.faclions at the na tional bat k are a futneteut’
