Whereas, The people of Georgia, on the

elected a majority of both branches of the
General Assembly, opposed to Mr. Van Bu

And tohereas, The Van Buren party of
s thp-Senate, from accidental causes, grow
ing out of the sickness and absence from
qifoer necessary reasons, of a considerable
of Senators, had this day a niajor
ity/’in that body, by aid of which acjpdental
(Majority, they sought to postpone indefin
itely the election of a United States Sena
tor, and theretby defeat the wishes and ex
pectations of a large majority of the good
people of this State.
And whereas, The Senators of the State
Rights party, (having no other rightful 1
means of defeating the consummation of
this outrage upon the popular will,) vacated
their seats with the iatent to prevent the
same, by reducing that body below a quo
rum : ; !1< !
Be it therefore Resolved, That we cordi

Milledgeville, Wednesday, Nov. 25.
The Senate bad taken a recess yester
day when I closed my letter. At the hour
cf 4 P.M. the body again met in their cham
ber, and after an ineffectual attempt at any
.reconciliation, the Senator from Walton
persisted in his motion to lay the resolu
tion on the table for the remainder of the
Session, when the Hon. A.J Miller arose and
made a brief, most'powerful, and eloquent
speech in defence of the position of those
yvith wham he acted, and. concluded with
tke suggestion that the JJprrison Senators
retire from'the Chamber, which they imme
diately adopted, and the Senate found itself
again, without a qUortiWvfcnd took a recess
till this morning, 9 o’clock.
The Senate this morping again met, and
after another ineffectual effort to adjust the
difficulty, took a short recess, during which
the Senators of each party Convened in'the
Senate committee rooms, with a view to
produce a recpncilation, which was eventu
ally most happily obtained in. the following
manner : The Van Buren Senators sent the
following proposition to the Harrison Sena
tors, that the Hon. Thomas H. Dawson
shdßld, when the Senate again assembled,
move a suspension of the order and the post
ponement of the resolution for the present
the effect of which would be to place the
matter percisely where it was prior to the
diflpnlty. This proposition was accepted
on the part of the Harrison Senators—the
Senate immediately convened. Mr. Daw
son submitted the proposition, and it was
adopted by a vote of 63 yeas 18 nays—the
knays all Van Buren men. Thus has ter
minated, for the present at least, this vexed
question, and the legislation of the county
will now proceed, unless the
Walton obstinately persists in his efforts to
prevent the election of a United States Sen
The only Bill of general interest passed
by the House yesterday, was a Bill in rela
tion to the laws of Usury, which provides
that in all cases when usury is plead, the
plaintiff shal recover his principal and legal
interest instead of the juincipal alone, as
stands. This morning the
Bme refused to reconsider this Bill.
Since the adjustment of the difficulties in
the Senate, that body has proceeded to the
Special order of the day, which is the Anti
U. S. Bank resolutions of the Senator from
Hall, upon which he is while I write occu
pying the time of the Senate with a speech.
The Governor this morning, submitted to
both Houses a communication announcing
the fact that one of the under keepers of
the Penitentiary had resigned, and made
charges of mal practice against the princi
pal keeper, Gen. Charles H. Nelson ; upon
which his Excellency asked an investiga
tion by a committee, which *n the House
was referred to a special committee of

for the consideration of the bill foe the re
sumption of specie payments, which, ques

readers sets apart the first day of February,
1841, as the proper time.
Mr. Crawford of Richmond presented the
petition of many citizens of Augusta, desi
ring the postponement beyond the time fix
ed in the bill, which was read and laid on
What will be the result of the action of
the Legislature upon this question it is im
possible now*toconjecture, but I should not’
be surprised'if the time-was extended be
yond the first of February next. Yours,
On our first page we commence the
fourth annual report of Prof. Cutting, the
State Geologist, to which we would invite
the attention of our readers. The subject
is one in which an interest commensurate
vt ilh its importance has never been Mani
fested by our people, probably because
their attention has not been drawn to its ad
vantages. And we have beeti one of the
number who regarded the ertiployment of a
State Geologist as a useless expense to the
State. But on examination ot the cabinet
collected by Professor Cotting’ which we
were permitted to make a few months since,
completely changed our views—we were
surprised at the extent of Lis discoveries,
and the sources of mineral and agricultu
ral wealth possessed by our people—and
determined to raise our voice in favour of
prosecuting the work, until every county
in the State should be thoroughly examin
ed. When this is done, (should the Legis
lature continue to afford the means,) the
book which will be published describing
the different varieties and qualities of our
soil, the localities of valuable minerals, and
the other information which Mr. Cotting is
charged with collecting, will be one of
the most interesting and valuable volumes
to the people of Georgia, that has ever ap
Although the most rigid economy in the
management of our State finances, is impe
riously demanded by the situation of our
Treasury ; and though'rhany items of ex
penditure should and probably will be cut
off: we trust that no false views of econo
my will deprive us of the advantages to be
derived from a completion of the survey
now progressing. If the members of the
Legislature would go back to the old price
of $4 per day for their services, enough
might be saved in a week or ten days to
pay the Geologist’s salary ; and who can
doubt which would benefit the Slate most ?
North Carolina Senators. —We have the
high gratification of informing our readers
(says the Fayetteville Observer of Wednes
day) that Willie P. Mangurn and William
A. Graham, both of Orange county, were
yesterday elected Senators in Congress, in
place of Messrs. Brown and Strange. The
election was first held for the six years
term, from 4th March next, and resulted,
for Mangurn 99, .for B. Brown 65. Man
gum was then elected for the unexpired
term of Brown (till 4th March next.) A
ballot thewtook place to fill Judge Strange’s
place, (till 4th- March 1843.) Graham re
ceived 98, Strange 64.
Col. Barringer, R. B. Gilliam and Mr.
Mendenhall are spoken of for Speaker of
the House in place of Graham. Mr. Eccles

THE CENTRAL BANK.
The report of the President of this insti
tution is before us. At an early day, we
shall present it in full to our readers. At
present, we design saying but little in rela
tion thereto. Those whose proper busi
ness it is to take the affairs of the Bank into
consideration, are prepared to do so, and
will no doubt act with an eye to the public
weal in ail that relates to the institution.
The ‘■'distributivepolicy" 'is all that we have
warred against; and whpther that has been
the policy aloneofthe Directors, or whether
it was sanctioned by the “will of the last
Legislature,” it was, and is, all the same
to us. We were opposed to it, and the re
port, which we have just read,, only, con
firms us, in ouropinion, that the distribution
was an unwise one.
The bank has now in circulation. $992,
336 of its own notes. It ows adebt in New
York of $263,000. To provide for the
payment of bills in circulation, and the
payment of the New-York debt, the bank
relies on $1,809,307,43 of discounted paper
and $381,090 of the stocks of the Bank of
the State of Georgia and Bank of Augusta.
Now, we apprehend that the $750,000 late
ly loaned to the people had better have been
employed in assisting to defray the expenses
of Government. For we cannot see how it
is possible that even with a.sale of the stoc
ks, and collections exceeding even expect-’
ation, the Bank can possibly sustain its
credit, and supply the Treasury with means
to defray the expenses of the State. Let
us see. Suppose the stock is sold. Well,
that, at par, will be just $381,000. This
amount deducted from the amount now in
circulation, leaves $611,336 of notes still in
circulation. Now let us suppose, as does
the President of the Bank, that with this and
collections, in the course of a few months,
the circulation is reduced to $300,000, we
would here ask, if, in all this, calculation,
there has any notiee been takennf the a
mount that the bank will have to pay out
for defraying.the expenses of the Legisla
ture, aiuithe other necessary expenditures
of the Government ? The truth is, the sto
cks of the State will have been sold, the mo
ney arising therefrom used, and the Central
Bank will have, upon the most moderate
calculation, about $500,000 ofits notes in
circulation, with the expenses of the Gov
ernment to defray and its debts to liquidate,
and nothing to do it with but discounted pa
per, or collections made thereon. Now this
is indeed deplorable ; and while receiving
it as such, we yet hope that such action
will hq had in relation to -thisinstitution, as
shall redound, at once, both to .the. interests
of the Bank and the people, who are its
owners, We perceive. that a resolution
has been introduced by Mr. Shaw of Put
nam, calling upon the Directors to. know
when the bank would be in a condition to
resume speciepayments. When this reso
lution it responded to,’ wc shall probably
then better understand the policy of the Di
From the Standard of Union.
Cfcirln the examiriationbefore the Legis
lature of the claiinttiOf James Hunter, for.
Legislative clemency or pardon, for the
crime of murder, committed upon the body
. of Burton Lovejoy, Mr. Jones, Senator from
the county of Paulding, made the following
statement, which he said he had not heard
After the conviction of Hunter, he was
visited in his prison, by his wife. During
one of her visits she clad herself in his ap
parel, and he dressed himself up in hers ;
and in that disguise made his escape. Af
ter some hours the affair was discovered,
and the Jailor detained the wife in prison,
as being accessory to the escape of her hus
band. Hunter, hearing in some way, that
his wife was kept in Jail, came forth, vol
untarily, and gave himself up to the proper
authority, to suffer upon the gallows, in or
der to relieve an affectionate and confiding
wife, from the walls of a prison. Such
conduct is truly enobling, even in a felon
—and die mention of it created a deep em
otion in the Legislative halls. Hunter was
pardoned by the Legislature, and has been
restored to the bosom of his family—and
we sincerely hope that his subsequent con
duct will prove him not unworthy of the en
joyment of those civil privileges to which
he lias been again restored.
Duel on the Tapis. — A new weapon.
—-The preliminaries of an affair of honour
were settled on the Levee last evening be
tween a couple of gentleman of the school
loafer. Harder looking samples, or more
perfect specimens of the class, could not be
found in any city in these United States ;
yet there was an air of dignity, a hauteur
about one of them, “which ill-accorded with
his shabby .attire-, and showed’that he had
seep and felt better days. The other was
constitutionally,.a loafer by birth and edu
cation ; and during an animated discussion
he threw out some hint which touched his
companion to the quick.
“1 don’t exactly understand you, sir,”
said the offended individual.
“Who cares;” retorted the other.
“Honour, sir ! honour!” said the first
speaker, swelling out his breast and giving
it a violent sjap with his left hand. “Hon

Hamburg, Nov. 21 .-Mail Robber caught.
—A young fellow named John Sasseen,
who had been for some time past deputy
postmaster at Morristown, in Jefferson Coun
ty, Tennessee, on the” stage line between
Knoxville and Joriesborough, was arrested
a fortnight ago, off” a charge of stealing
money from the maH.’S The mail, itappears >.
was opened by Sasseen, at'Morristown,
both going and returning, at night, and as
the post-office was in a small store build-
had a fine opportunity t ofeel for inter
esting letters—and it is understood that he
has frequently thrown aside'packages ad
dressed to Knoxville and other places, from
the mail for more particular examination
than the legal time for detaining the mail
allowed him. The loss of several letters
from the banks in Knoxville to gentlemen
in Jonesborough,’ eontainihg trioney, indu
ced the postmaster at Jonesborough, Dr.
Chester, to snake a secret but though investi
gation in relation to these thefts which re
sulted in the complete detection of young
Sasseen. DrVC. prepared a cunning de
coy package for the rogue, and with a
mail key iri his pocket, set out to follow
and watch the package. He was accom
panied by a merchant of Jonesboro, on this
secret mission, and after passing each office
on the rout, together they examined the
mail. After passing Sasseen’s office, the
package found—not to be in the mail!
Another was prepared at
Knoxville forthe returning mail, and its
similar disappearance at Morristown fixed
the crime fully upofi Sasseen. He is now
in prisontat Knoxville, awaiting his trial at
the next session of the District Court. Dr.
Chester is entitled to much praise both from
the cmm unity and the post-office depart
