In our paper of the 2dtb ult. we published Mr. Hciitdu’s speech iu the Senate of the U. S. on his resolution to appropriate the Surplus Reveuue iu the Treasury to the defence of the couutry— iu which the loss of the three million appropria tion of the House at the last sessiou is charged upon the Senate. This subject bus produced a great deal of excitement, iu Congress aud out of it; ami all are anxious to read the debate. We shall gratify public curiosity as fur as iu our pow er; to-day we give the remarks of Mr Webster; and shall publish the speeches of the other lead ing members as fast as wo have room. Whether we have war with France or uot, the aspect of our Foreign Relaiious; the exposed condition of our commerce & our seaboard ; the unfriendly feelings of the Indians aud of Mexi co, ju.idieJ tho 3 million appropriation on the part of tbe House of Representatives, aud will forever gain it applause for wisdom and patriot- ism: while its defeat will stamp the Senate (ibiit august uihunnl! ) with iufatny. That vote a- loue, is euough to braud Webster, Clay, Cal houn, aud Wli'tc as enemies of their country, aud wither forever any former laurels they may have earned. Nothing else could have beeu ex pected of Daniel Wcbstet, by any one who recol lected bis course during the most alarming crisis of tho last war ; but from '.he consistent patriot ism of Judge White and the burning ardor of llcury Clay and John C. Calhoun at tbe above mentioned period, something better teas expected. Tbe reasons given by «nch are far from being satisfactory. The boasted devotion of Mr Web ster to the constitution is a solcmu mockery, “lie would have voted against the appropriation if the eueiny had been at ibe gates.” for fear tbe constitution might he violated if the President bad all that money at, his disposal ! Aud supposing war had ensued, and the eucniy had ravished tbe country—would the enemy have spared the eoiisiiiutiunJ No! the constitution aud the country would have suffered together. ') he hypocritical excuse of Judge White, for voting ngaiust the appropriation, viz. “that the President had uot asked for it—aud that it would be eruel to place so great a responsibility in bis hands !’* accords well with some other of his pro fessions wo have seen of late. However great our veneration may heretofore have been for the Judge, and whatever confidence wo may hereto fore have placed in his wisdom, mid patriotism, charity now constrains us to belief c, since he has giveu himself up to the WFiigs and Nullifiers, that he has arrived at his dotage, and outlived his di> cretioo. The imaginary fears of Webster & Co. for the safety of the coustitutiou, have about as much reason in them, as there was in those of a little girl w o once beard or rend of: A girl of 14 was left alone in the bouse as tha oven was hea ting whilst her mother stepped over to a neigh - hor’s. When the old lady came back, she fouod her daughter in the greatest distress, aud sobbing as if her heart would break.

Extract ofletterfrom Mr. Wyatt, to a friend iu East Florida. “There has been a fatal error on the part of Government in relation to the strength of these indiaus. aud the facilities which they have for procrastinating tho war. The whole strougth of the Indiaus cannot now be estimated at less than 4000 effective warriors including the negroes.— Tho country they will occupy is about 300 miles long and about 125 broad: two thirds of which(thecentre) iscovered with a chain of Lakes studded w ith Islands and almost endless glades aud cbequcied with lagoons. & deep narrow streams, tnakiog iu all directions into the sea arched over as it were with mats nf ever greens aud high grass. That part which is out of water or rather subject to a partial inundation, may be considered classed as follow s : Spots of open pine woods, thick evergreen scrubs and grassy glades; and uow and then high and fertile hammocks. The open pine woods offer an inex haustible quantity of comply or arrow root, au excellent substitute for bread, and easily prepared. The high hammocks, a variety of fruits, whilst the waters every where arc filled with fish aud fowl, ami the whole forest with wild game. Three years ago when I examined this country I met with clans of indiang in Towns and fish eries. who seemed to know nothing about any white people except the Spaniards, with w-hoin they were intermixed. The Spaniards having Squaws for wives aud Indian men aud half- breeds engaged as fishermen and sailors. Many of those Indians, 1 was told were excellent sai lors and well acquainted ou the coast of Cuba ; That they had frequently passed in their large canoes at a favorable lime from the Keys to that Island. From these facts, and the strong partia lity they have had for these Spanish fishermen, I should not be surprised if they aie fed up with the vain hope' of filially escaping to some of these *V. India Islands, with all their negroes. If those Indians are not encompassed on the laud side by block-houses, aud on the water by armed vessels or boats, so ns to break up all communication between them and these Spanish fishermen, and our tunaway negroes, they may keep up a petty war with us for the uext 5 years, as Powell, the celebrated Chief insultingly" told the Agcut lie could do, a short time before hos- tilitics commenced.—ib stion o| sickuess.

Fell. 15 Indian Devasta tions.—The whole of the country south of St. Augustine, has been laid waste during" the past week, aud not a building of auy value left stan ding. There is not a single house now remaining between this city and Cape Florida, a distance of 250 miles, all, all. Jiave been burnt to tbe ground. On Sunday morning last, a dense smoke was, «<-en iu th« south, in the direction of Bulowville, and it was conjectured that the buildings on that plantation were in flames,{and it was known that there were none but Indians in that direction.— The smoke was seen in tho same direction on Tuesday. On Thursday, it was reported, that General Hernandez's houses at St. Joseph’s were ou fire, and in the afternoon, this report was confirmed by two of General Hernandoz’s negroes who stated that they had rode from Alala Com- pre to St. Josephs, that morning, and came within a quarter of a mile of the house, and had a full view of the burning buildings. They state the-houses to havo been fired about? o’clock that inorniug and that every house except the corn bouse wrs burning at tho time they were there.— The Indiaus had posted seutiuels at some dis tance from tho houses,-while the main body were dancing around tho. fire. The negroes can give I us uo correct idea as to the number of the Indians j but say there was a large crowd of them. The | plantation of Col. James Williams wa* also set i fire to and destroyed at tho same time. Mr. Du- j pout’s plantation of Buen Retiro, is also destro- [ yed. There now remains no doubt of the des truction of Buloivville. It is tbe opinion of inauy that after tho battle at Dunlawton tho Indian's procured a largo reinforcement pud returned to attack Bulowville. Tho amount of property des troyed is immense, at Bulowvilio alone, the buil dings are said to have cost 50.000 dollars. The property destroyed during the last week, on these plantations cauuot be less than 200,000 dollars. "St. Augustine. (E. F.)

Deep darkness reign’d tinoiigi.outtuedwelling. Hush’d, was the hdid storuioihout. Or iu low meanings sadiy swelling, When, hark! a groan unearthly rang Upon each Vatikoe’s tympanum, Spun out with doleful nasal twang. With curdlin* biood, each bearer dumb, . Stood list’ning, first with pale atl’right, ' Again the sound, when both as one, Sprung to tbe ashes for alight. No coal was there, the cold hearth stone Long had been cold, for want of embers. What should they do? A lot of matches One of then suddenly remembers, ls safe beneath a pedlar’s hatches, A Yankee pedlar’s rare without a flint And steel; in vain w-ere torn This time their knuckles, for no dint * Could draw a spark, the flints w ere horn. No doubt they thought of Yaukee tricks, Of wooden hams and pine knot nutmegs, How red paint they hud made from bricks, And crows eggs often sold for pulleteggs. No Yankee son can travel till He first lias learnt to cheat his father. Then he’s of age, and o’er the hill Prtts off with razor, strap and lather, To shave the world, and lie allows “He’s ’bout as slick as turkey gravy," These, thought of Hainan and the gallows Which he had built for Mordccai. Neither would get the brimstone lights atone, Or neither one would stay behind, For fear, perchance, the evil one, Might in one’s absence, have a mind To take the other, so both w ent, To seek their dearborns and procure a light, The storm was o’er, the wind was spent! Why stopp’d our heroes ? why their looks af- Aghast they stood, for not a speck, [fright ? _ Or vestige of their wagons left. Their stabling also, was a wreck, For sudden of its roof bereft. The whirlwind scarce bad left a pen, To shield the horses from the storm. Madden’d by loss, all danger then, None fear’d : no! not old satan’s form ! It was too dark, uncertain w eather, To hunt their scattering merchandise, So back they enter’d in together, When, staring red, a pair of eyes Glow'd with a burning lustre there. With beating hearts towards the place, Fxpecting each, with standing hair, To meet old Smootie lace to face. They close advanc’d, nigher, yet Higher, (’Twas in a corner of the room, Where late had roar’d a “ rousing fire,” But now immers’d in chilling gloom) When lo ! the eyes!—a pair of coals, That first, no doubt, were scarce a spark, But rak’d to air. their kindling wholes, .Seem’d burning optics iu the dark. Our herons would have laugh’d!—a shriek Burst on their ears, and quell’d young mirth, But uow intent the cause to seek, A fire soon blaz'd upon the hearth, Withlightwood torch, and “courage brac’d,” I’earles* each cranny tuey explore. Till by the groans increasing trac’d, The sound is heard beneath the floor, It was not nail’d and pegg’d at most. But lightly to the sleeper-logs; The planks are raised, and lo! the ghost! Booh! roar’d a frighten’d nest of hogs! All else I’ve got to say about it, Two dearborns were next morning found Ten miles off. Reader, do you doubt it ? For more, they were both safe and sound. Thus told he us, who told tho tale. But it is thought the rascal lied, And if he did, the slaud’rous male, Wilt be hereafter for it fri. d ! But hold! I’ve wandered from my text, Where was I ? Oh, I’ve found it, “Macon!” I heard a preacher once much vex’d By selling cotton low, thus take ou In angry strain about the same. Like “Mawworm” in the “Hypocrite," Ho storm’d cud roar’d with file and flame, And thmrqi’d aud bang’d the Holy Writ.

While r ght and left to hell he slung them. “Oh Cotton Avenue: thou dev’iish place Of thieves and rogues, a low-Iiv’d race!
