The following Afi eating account of a visit to the barn near Hempstead Beach where were collected tie dead of the barque Mexico was written by a gentleman to his Friend in Boston. We copy from the Boston mercantile journal Quot on reaching Hemstead i concluded to go somewhat Oil Quot the Road to look at the place where the barque Mexico was cast away. In half an hour we Camelo Lou s tavern some four or five Miles this Side of the Beach where the ship Lay and Here in his barn had been deposited the bodies of the ill fated passengers which had been thrown upon the Shore. The it or3 were open and suf a a scene As presented itself to my View i certainly never could live contemplated. It was a dreadful a frightful scene of horror. Forty or fifty bodies of All Ages and sexes there lying promiscuously before me Over the floor and Frozen As stiff As Marble and Allex a Rcpt a few in the very dresses in which they Peris income with their hands clenched As if of warmth and almost every one with an Arm crooked and Bent As it would be clinging to the rigging. There were scattered about among the number four or five Beautiful Little girls from six to sixteen years of age their Cheeks and lips As red As roses with their Calm Blue eyes open looking at you in the face As if they would speak. I could hardly realize that they a Vic dead. I touched their Cheeks and they were Frozen As hard and solid As u Rock and not the least indentation a Ould be made by any pressure of the hand. I could perceive a resemblance to each other and supposed them to be the a fighters of i a passenger named Pepper who perished Togetti with his wife and All the family. On the arms of sumo were to be seen the Irti it cession of the rope which they had Clung to the Mark of the twist deeply sunk into the flesh. I saw on Pooi lie Gro Sailor a tall Raan with his head thrown Back his ups parted and his now Eye balls to Refl Ebward and his arms roiled Over his breast As it. Imploring heave ii for Aid. This poor fellow evidently had Frozen whose m the act of fervent in feral a had or my which had bound her to the rigging and another Little fellow had been crying and thus Frozen with the Muscles of the face just As we see children when crying. There were a brother and sister thrown on the Beach locked in each other s arms but they had been separated in the barn. All the men had their lips firmly compressed together and with the most agonizing expression on their countenances i Ever be held. A Little girl had raised herself on tiptoe and thus was Frozen just in that position. It was an awful sight and such a picture of horror was before me that i became unconsciously fixed to the spot and found myself trying to suppress my Ordinary breathing lest i should disturb the repose of those around me. I was aroused from the reverie by the Entrance of a Many a Coroner. As i was about to leave my attention became directed to a girl who i afterwards , had come that morning from the City to scarch for her sister. She had sent for her to come Over from Liin glance and had received intelligence that she was in this ship. She Camo into the barn and the second Hody she cast her Eye upon was her s. Slie gave Way to such a burst of impassioned grief and anguish Tiitu 1 could not behold her without sharing in her feelings. She threw herself upon the cold and icy Faco and neck of the lifeless body and t jus with her armis around her remained wailing moaning and sobbing till i came away and when some distance off i could hear her calling her in the most frantic manner. So Little time had Uliey to prepare for their Fate that i perceived a Hunch of keys and a half eaten cake fall from the bosom of a girl whom the Coroner was removing. The cake appeared As if a Pari of it had just been bitten and thrust into her bosom and round her neck was a ribbon with a pair of scissors suspended. And to observe the Stout rugged sailors too a a Hose Iron frames could endure so much hardship a Here they Lay masses of ice. scenes show us indeed How powerless and feeble Are All human efforts when contending against the storms and tempests which sweep with Resistless violence Over the fico of tie deep. And yet the vessel was so near the Shore that the shrieks and moans of the poor creatures were heard through that bitter dreadful night till towards morning the groans died away and All was implied in death and the murmur of tie raging Billows was All the sound that Mot the ear. N o v e l c111u u m s t a n c e. A Young planter in the upper part of the state lately married a Beautiful and highly intellectual lady. After the honeymoon was passed he was pained to observe that his Young Bride looked thoughtful at times and appeared to suffer much from Seimui. Thinking this might be caused by the absence of female companions he induced several Young ladies relatives to make his House their Home in Hopes thereby to Render her completely Happy. This arrangement had not tie desired effect. His beloved thou Gli apparently joyous and cheerful while conversing with him As soon As the conversation lagged evidently relapsed into the melancholy mood. Surprised at this lie fell to pondering the cause and after a length ii Reinie Cimon he came to the determination of sending to new York for a piano to is forwarded by the first ship bound for Natchez Vicksburg or grand Gulf. Well the musical companion arrived and a splendid one it was of Beautiful mahogany ornamented and polished to the value of a five Hundred Dollar note. And then it discoursed such ravishing Melody As the snowy angers of the Young Bride pressed the keys a the Young planter was in raptures and congratulated himself on having procured the identical one thing needful to his Angel s Felicity. Poor Man he paid but a poor compliment to his amiable partner s intellect if he Tho t she could contentedly pass her Leisure hours in strumming a piano Forte he was mistaken. Though music hath charms like love it is not the Only Desideratum in the world for awhile it touches the ear and pleases the heart yet ministers not to the mind the lady courted Apollo but Seldom and the husband Iliad the mortification of feeling that he had not made his Domicil a Paradise to her he adored. At last to solve the Riddle of her discontent he asked her if she did not at times regret having entered the marriage state. Quot of no indeed Quot she replied with earnestness never have i been for a moment other than your Happy wife but sometimes Quot Quot Well sometimes what Dearest Quot i nest Tell you then sometimes j Tygret that you Don t take the newspapers a takes tuscan Oman.

He contended Thatev-1 conduct and to condemn his acts freely Chenev cry Man could not but see that it would be utter or i consider them to be in violation of the Laws ruin to Tiv a who had borrowed Money to specs a and of the Constitution. I Asa senator May late in the system was not to go in judge him he can never judge me. A Lornier part of your Speerli As re period you my object is to Avail Iny Seloff the occasion to say Quot the speculation which a particular state of reiterate a hat i said As broadly and filly As i has Given Rio a to had been produced by tired them on a former occasion Here in my those in Power. They had profiled by that state a place where alone i am responsible and where of thing and should this Bill be passed it would the friends of the pre is Ilcent will have an Opp Ortu Only cons mate their wishes amp a. Amp a. J nity to Correct my statement if erroneous or to knowing the liabilities of reporters to err in la refute my conclusions if not fairly drawn. I King Down and writing out the speeches of Mem spoke Wuh out Notis us it May be i vat May of Bors of Congress i have made inquiry in rela j Mit something which i said on the former Occa Tion to the accuracy of this report and have Sion that May to deemed material or to express been furnished with certificates of gentlemen who myself less full and strongly than i then did. If heard you affirming that Quot it is substantially Cor so i a ill thank any senator to remind me so that i get. J my statement now May be As Strong and full As you cannot but i to aware sir that the impute alien. Tons which your language convey Are calculated j if my memory serves me i opened my remarks if believed to destroy my Cliar Acter As a Man and a when i spoke formerly by stating that so Many that the charge is one which if True ought to produce my impeachment and punishment As a pub Aud so Subtle were tie devices by who were in Power could in la Csc which those times ilecc3 lie officer. If i caused the removal of the depos the people without their knowing that it was ites for the base purpose of enriching myself or j almost enough to make a Lover of ids country Demy friends by any of the results which migh Spair fits Liberty. I then stated that i knew of grow out of that measure there is no term of re no measure which could better Illus Rute the truth proach which i do not deserve and no punishment 1 of Liis remark than tie one now before us. Its known to the Laws a hich ought not to to in Ilic professed object is torn strict the of Public Ted up a me. On the contrary if tie whole in land in order As is avowed to prevent Specula Eulatio i both As to motive and fact be a Fabrica Tion and by consequence the Accuu Patton of a Tion and calumny the punishment which belongs surplus Revenue in the Treasury. The measure to me if guilty is too mild for him who wilfully is under Sooil to be an administration measure i then stated that so far from preventing Specula makes it. I am aware sir of the constitutional privilege under which this imputation is cast Forth and the immunity which it secures. That privilege it is in no degree my purpose to violate however Jross and wicked May Piave been the use of it. But i exercise Only the common right of every citizen when i inform you that the imputations you have cast upon me Are false in every particular not having for the last ten years purchased any Public land or had any interest in any such Purchase. The Bolo charge unless explained must to con Sidra fid the offspring of a morbid imagination or of sleepless malice. I ask you sir As an act due to Justice Honor and truth to retract this charge on the floor of the Senate in As Public a manner As it has been uttered it being the most appropriate Mode by which you can repair Ibe injury which might otherwise flow from it. But in the event that you fail to do so i then demand that you place your charge before the House of that they May inst st tute the necessary proceeding to ascertain the truth or falsehood of your imputation with a View to such further measures As Justice May require. If you will neither do Justice to yourself nor place the matter in a position where Justice be done me by the representatives of the people i shall be compelled to resort to the Onu Quot remedy left me and before i leave the City give publicity to this letter by which you will stand stigmatized As one who protected by his constitutional privilege is ready to Stab the reputation of others without the magnanimity to do them Justice or the Honor to place them in a situation to receive it from others. Yours a fee. Andrew Jackson. To the Hon j. C. Calhoun u. S. Senate. Now assuming that the Quantity on hand is thirty millions of acres there would be six years Supply in the hands of speculators even if the land offices of the United states be closed and that if the Bill did not pass accordingly it would take double or treble the time to dispose of the lands which in that Case will be in the hands of the speculators. All must Sec the certain ruin in that event of those who have borrowed Money to speculate in the land particularly if the sales of Public land should be free and open to every one As it now is to Purchase to the extent of his Means i next showed that the contest was Between the government As a dealer in Public land and a he speculators that they held in Market at least an equal Quantity in value to that which the government now has offered for Sale and that every restriction imposed upon the sales of tie government land must of necessity in crease the i Tatien showed that very onerous and oppressive restrictions of an odious character upon the Sale of the Public lands would be imposed if the Bill should pass. No Quot one thereafter could Purchase land of the government without License a License in my opinion As offensive and odious As would be a License on the press. To obtain this License the oath of the applicant was required and then it could Only be obtained on payment of one Dollar and Twenty five cents per acre for which the citizen May now re Cevic a Grant in fee simple. After he had made his Purchase under authority of his License the purchaser has to comply Vith the condition of settlement and cultivation and must within the period of five years prove to the satisfaction of the Register and receiver who Ara made High judicial officers a compliance with these conditions before he can receive his title and if he failed to comply by Accident or otherwise he forfeits both his Money and the land. I stated that this was a virtual increase of the Price of the Public lands to actual settlers so Neh so that any sober minded Man would prefer to give the speculators two dollars per acre for land of the same Quality to giving tie government one Dollar and Twenty live cents for a la Cense with these oppressive conditions. Having established this Point i then undertook to show that it would in crease vastly the Power pm award River at Philadelphia. Of the government in the new states if they chose a a Delaware was to Cher disc this patronage for political purposes a 4 pole Chain on Tho that they Aronld so use it. We have ample proof in the past conduct of Tho administration and in tiie principles which have been openly avowed by ter this chamber with an armed Force disperse the members and imprison them but we. Must submit without murmur or complaint and patiently wait until the majority of the House of representatives composed of his friends shall vote an impeachment against him which if it were possible for them to do there stands Here a majority composed also of his., friends ready Tofu acquit Hirn. Let those who have contributed to produce the present unhappy state of things who have script the other branches of the government of their Quot Powers one by one and piled them on thee ecu Tive until it has become practically the Supre Hie Power answer for what they have done. Under Quot All the responsibility with Avrich they stand to our god and our country it them respond Foi this flagrant violation of the constitutional privilege of the Senate. As for us the poor privilege a Jitia in i Amin Hii Uius to Nix to the states that the Senate once a great bulwark of the Public Suberly by a succession of encroachments is now placed at the mercy of Tho executive exposed to every insult and outrage which the unbridled passions of any president May prompt him to offer. A following Noble sentiment occurs in the will of col. Geo. Mason Fvirginia a main distinguished before the revolution for Liis patriotism and chivalry. Such was the spirit of our fathers. Talfey believed that the noblest of inheritance they could transmit to their children yet Ras a quench less Zeal in the cause of Liberty and their country. Hov has this inheritance been Steve Ardd Quot i recommend it to my sons from my own experience in life to prefer the happiness of Independence and a private station to the troubles and vexations of Public business but if either their own inclinations or the necessities of the times should engage them in Public affairs i charge to ice on a Lar her s Blessing never to let the motives of private interest or ambition induce them to betray nor the terrors of poverty and disgrace or the fear of danger or of death deter them from asserting the Liberty of their country and endeavouring to transmit to Prosperity those sacred Iii hts to which themselves were Tiju it would in fact but consummate the greatest speculation which this country has Ever witnessed a speculation originating in a state of things of which those in Power were the authors by which they had profited and which this measure should it by coca Law would but Complete. I then asked what had caused such an extraordinary demand for Public land that the sales should have been More than quintuple within the last three years and said that to an or this question we Mast look to the state of the currency. That is was owing to the extraordinary increase Orbank paper which had filled to repletion a channels of circulation. The Secretary had estimated this increase within that period from six dollars and fifty cents per individual to ten dollars. I believe the increase to be much greater a the effects of which have been to double the Price of every article which has not been kept Down by some particular cause. In the mean time the Price of Public land has remained unaltered at one Dollar and Twenty five cents the acre and tie natural consequence was that this excessive currency overflowed upon the Public land and has caused those extra Ordin try speculations which it is the professed object of this Bill to prevent. I then asked what had caused this inundation of paper Tho answer was the Experiment. I love to remind the gentlemen of the word which had removed the Only restrictions that had existed against the Issue of Bank paper. Tho consequence was predicted at the Lime it was foretold that Banks would multiply without plumber and pour Forth their issus without restriction or limitation. These predictions were at the time unheeded their truth now begins to to realized. The Experiment commenced by a Transfer of the Public from where they were placed by Law and where they were under its safeguard and p. S. I herewith enclose you the copies of Protection to Banks which Avert under the sole two notes verifying the correctness of the re and control of the executive. The of port of your speech in the Globe of the 6lh in a feet was a vast of executive patronage the following is an admirable parody on Brutus address to the romans after he had murdered Casar a a Toper s address to his companions.

If then that Lover demand Why Slingo Rose against ardent spirits this is my answer not Itiat 1 loved ardent spirits less but that 1 loved health and a sound Constitution More. Had you rather that ancient spirits were ruling to die a ruined Knave than that ardent spirits were condemned to live a Stout Hardy honest Man As ardent spirits were pleasant i lasted them As they were exile i rating i sipped them As they recruited my spirits i drank them but As they were ruinous i spurned them i Here Are tastes for their pleasantness sips for their exhilaration drams for their recruiting Powers but banishment and detestation for their ruinous tendency.

And the opening afield of speculation in describing which in anticipation i pronoun Riccy it to be its friends. A former senator from new York High in the Confidence of the parly and now chief magistrate of that stale had openly avowed in his place on this floor that to the Victor belongs the spoils for which he was reprimanded at the time by the senator from Massachusetts or. Webster in a manner worthy of his distinguished talents. Assuming then that the Power would by exercised with a View to political influx acc i showed the it it would place a vast number of the citizens of the new states probably not less than one Hundred thousand in a condition of Complete dependence on the receivers and of Vassalage to the government. These Are the sentiments which i the Liverett on a former occasion and which i now reiterate to the fullest extent omitting nothing that is material As far As connected with the letter of the Tho president and for the delivery of which my privilege As a senator and those of this body have been grossly outraged. Or. Grundy and or. Walker Rose and stated that they had been attentive listeners during the debate alluded to in the president s letter and corroborated the correctness of or. Calhoun s statement of what he said on that occasion. Or. Clay Rose and said that he had waited under the expectation that the senator from missis Sis Sippi or. Walker who had just resumed his seat or some other Friend of the adminis radon would make some motion founded upon the letter which had been Laid before the Senate by the senator from South Carolina. And if now added a or. Clay pausing and looking around the Senate if any Friend of the administration has it in contemplation to submit any such motion i will with pleasure give Way that it May be made. That most extraordinary letter continued or. Clay has filled me with the and mortification. Regret that the illustrious citizen at the head of the government should have allowed himself to address such a letter in such a spirit and in such language to one of the representatives Ofa Sovereign state of this Union mortification that the Senate of the United states should be reduced to the Degre Dalion in which we All feel and know it now to be. That this let no. 1. cite feb. A 18.37. At the request of the president of the United slates 1 hereby certify that i was present in the gallery of the Senate of the u. States of saturday the 4th instant during a discussion upon the land Bill and heard some of tha remarks of a or. which it afforded Ved to be. I he administration Lias profiled by this vast a Irona fic and the prejudice which i it Luas excited against be Lian Kiis tie of sustaining themselves ill Power. It is unnecessary to repeat the remarks in illustration of this. The truth of the statement is known to All the senators who have Calhoun upon in which the president j daily witnessed tiie party topics which have been was charged Widi being a Speculator in the Public drawn from this Fri Laid source. I then remark lands. On coming out of the Capitol the in it Jet was mentioned to me by a Friend of the president. And my Recolly Tiou of tiie words used accorded with what he understood Hail been said and which Are substantially the same As reported in the Globe of the 6th inst. Signed Arthur Campbell. No. 2. Washington i a Fol. 7, 1837. La in answer to your inquiry of me Wilether or. Calhoun in his remarks on the land Bill on saturday last used the words attributed to him by me in the report which appeared in the Quot Globe Quot of yesterday Viz Quot was it not notorious that the president of the United states himself had been connected with the Purchase of Public lands Quot i would slate that i have referred to my Short hand notes and find that Sulci was the language he used to card ing to the Best of knowledge and belief. , very respectfully signed w. E. Drake. I certify that no. 1 and no. 2 Are True copies of the originals. A test a. Jackson or. I do not intend said or. Calheim in Arhat i propose to say to comment on the character or the language of this extraordinary letter. It has excited in my bosom but one feeling a that of pity for the weakness of the author contempt for the so ample that a a Otiis Cluid himself might envy the ter is a palpable breach of the priv Deges Apper a �?�>�?�1 such it has pro tailing to this body by the Constitution is beyond All controversy. It has not Bce denied and cannot be denied it is such a letter As no constitutional Monarch would dare address to any member of Tho legislative body and if he could so far forget himself As to do it it would make the throne shake on which he sits. We or president who belong to the opposition have no Power to protect the privileges of this body nor our individual privileges. The majority alone is now invested with Aih homily to accomplish those objects. On that majority rests exclusively the responsibility of maintaining the dignity my the privileges of the Senate. And i has e seen with great Surprise that not one of the majority has risen or appears disposed to Rise to vindicate tie privileges which belong to the Senate. All of them on the contrary sit by in silence As if they were ready to acquiesce in this new invasion of the rights of by the president of the United states a co ordinate Branch of the government. I heard with satisfaction from the senator from South Carolinas that to intended himself to make no motion founded upon the president s letter but should leave it to the Senate to protect its own Righta. How can any member of the minority offer any motion with that View after tie doctrines which were brought fora Tel by the Friend of the administration during the debate Vycichl amp to Rose on the removal of the deposits and which have Heen More Recei uly maintained during the of the expunging Resolution and supported by the Vole of the Senate such a the Laine table condition to which the Senate a now reduced How can the majority itself bring up any Stich Iho Tion a a cording to Tho do a ring a t i�s0n by ing the tribunal to try he vent of a a impels come that to express any a Pic in Ivy Fey of that Trumor were to be trusted it was not Only in a political Point of View that those in Power Lead profited by Tho vast Means pm in the lands of the executive by the Experiment a they had profited in a pecuniary As Well As in a political Point of View. It has been frequently stated and not contradicted that Many in High places Are among the speculators in Dands and that even an individual connected Vii the president himself one of his nth a Hows was an extensive adventurer in this Field of speculation. I did it name him but 1 now fool called upon to do so. I mean or. Mclemore. Having established these Points i next undertook to show that Titis Bill would consummate those spot ulalious and establish the political Ascendancy which the Experiment had Given to the administration. In proof of the former i availed myself of the declaration of the chairman of the committee on Public lands who had stated that the speculators had already purchased and held a vast amount of Public lands not less As i understood him than Twenty five or thirty millions of acres and that if this Bill did not past the scenes of the last two years Widd be., repeated in this and the coming year. I Tihe Tyml arlook to show from the showing of the Chi Afeman himself that these speculations would prove ruinous without the Aid of this Bill lie had stated that the Anidi demand for Public land Resu ipg from our increased population exp a de five millions of acres.
