Attempt to smother the read Era will have seen by our yesterday s daily paper of the 26th, that an attempt was made in the Senate on tuesday to smother the Villany of our whig financiers until some time next year i or Parker submitted a Resolution giving the chairman of the committee authority to take Quot them papers containing the records of the Villany into his own Possession and to make such a report As he might think advisable to the governor in time to be printed for the next general Assembly or. Parker is not disposed to give us a Chance to make any a a political capital Quot out of Quot them papers Quot it would seem but the whigs in the Senate were not prepared to Back him up in this attempt to withhold from the people a Fuir development of the abominable and corrupt proceedings of the fun mongers and therefore the Resolution was Laid on the table. The pretext for offering it was that there would not be time to finish the examinations provided the legislature adjourned upon the Day fixed. Messes. Vest and Chamberlain therefore desired that the session might be prolonged. Not doubting the motives of these gentlemen in the least we differ with them in this respect. If it be impossible to conclude the examinations by the a list let us have the results so far As they have progressed and Trust to another occasion for further developments. Or. Parker s particular anxiety to smother the Rascal ties until next year we presume grows out of the fact upon which he dwelt with so much vehemence at the whig caucus held on the same evening that the state senators to he elected next August a would be required to vote not Only for one but for Ito u. S. Senators before the expiration of their terms of service. But although Euch a a amp Noou Yre might be very Well received among the whigs a Nodi Anapolis he would very soon be taught that the honest people of the state whether whigs or democrats Are not quite ready to justify such a procedure.

By which it will be seen that there will be realized upon polls and assessments at 20 cents tax on the $100 valuation and 50 cents poll tax $203,550 00, and the expenses for civil list $100,000. And to be App red to the redemption of Treasury notes and interest $100,000, leaving at the Clos of 1843, $3,550 01.
