David Wallace representative elect from this District left for Washington on Friday last to attend the called session of Congress which commences on the 31st inst. The members from this state we presume Are All on their Way. Messes. White and Cravens passed through Cincinnati a few Days since. Supreme court. The supreme court of this state convened in the Capitol on yesterday the 24th. Judges Blackford Sullivan and Dewey were present together with gentlemen of the bar from different parts of the state and persons interested in the business expected to occupy the attention of the court. The Hon. Charles Ogle died recently at his residence in Somerset a. His Public life was marked by great Energy of character. Pennsylvania Small notes. The Philadelphia Gazette Speaks of some elegant specimens of one and two Dollar notes engraved for the Harrisburg Bank and expresses great pleasure at the Prospect of Pennsylvania once More having Quot a currency of her the Gazette adds Quot with notes clean and sound and handsome As these and with the certainty that Pennsylvania is no longer destined to Supplicate a ragged and Greasy circulating medium from elsewhere and that she consequently stands upon a level with her sister states in these pecuniary respects the time is not Many Days Distant when a citizen of our Commonwealth May look at its currency with Confidence and from the Cincinnati Republican. The next Congress. The result of the elections for members of the new Congress in Twenty one states renders it certain now that the whigs will have the largest majority that has Ever been held by any party since the adoption of the Federal Constitution. The following is the result As far As ascertained compared with the last Congress new Congress. Old Congress. A ii hrs Locos whigs Locos. Or. Jefferson s opinions. The Reader will find in our columns of to Day a highly interesting letter on the subject of appointment and removal from office written by or. Jefferson nearly forty years ago. As the subject of which it treats has lost none of its intrinsic Merit by the lapse of years or other circumstances it will doubtless be read at the present time with renewed interest As Well As profit. The application of such a remedy As that suggested by or. Jefferson is it is believed the Only one after so Long a period of misrule which can restore the government to its wonted purity and atone for that proscription which has been indulged in with impunity for the last twelve years. In View of All this it is not a Little amusing to hear the doleful complaints which Are now rung through the land by the Locos whenever they happen to be superseded in stations which they have so Long and which Many of them have so Unworthily filled. For journal. Messes. Editors when the retailing of liquor has reached such a pass in its effects upon the morals of the Community As to have deservedly called Forth the solemn presentment of the evil by the grand jury of Marion county which is in your paper of to Day it is certainly time that every citizen should make the inquiry Quot what ought to be Donev it May be difficult to say what should be done but of one thing there need be no doubt and that is that it will be a burning shame on the citizens of India a Apolis and of the county if they sit easy and contented under such a presentment by the grand jury especially when there is every reason to believe the charge so made is True and More especially when it is known that it is in their Power legally to be relieved from the charge and at the same time promote the real Good of All and do real injury to none.

Old Congress. Maryland election. The election in Maryland took place on the 17lh inst. For eight members of Congress. The Patriot of the 18th, remarks we have the pleasure of announcing the redemption of the Baltimore City District and the election for the first time since Locopo Chism reared its head among us of two whig candidates to Congress. The individuals elected Are messes. Kennedy and Randall. The same paper after contrasting the returns As far As received with former votes in the various districts remarks Quot we May then set Down six whigs and one Loco Foco As certain leaving the sixth District As doubtful and to be heard from. This is Good for old presentment by the grand jury of the county of Marion on the subject of licensing the Sale of ardent spirits. The attention of the grand jury has been necessarily and particularly directed to the Law which authorizes the licensing taverns and groceries and the evils which arise from the too frequent Extension of that privilege have been made Manifest although not indictable. The establishment of Public seems to have been intended to afford places of rest and refreshment for the weary traveler and not an Asylum of immorality or crime and the grand jury think they have had sufficient evidence before them to produce the conviction that most of he offences such As gambling betting assaults and batteries amp a. Are committed in or about the retail groceries of the country Offen Ces which give More trouble to the grand jury and the courts than All others against the penal Laws. The remedy for this growing evil is not within the Power of the grand jury All they can do is to present the evil the remedy whereof seems to be at the discretion of the courts doing county business. They can increase or diminish the number of retailers and the grand jury entertain the Hope that the March of Good morals and the steady Force of the Public judgment will so regulate that , As to entirely cure the evils Here complained of.

The Raleigh Register of May 14th, says a our election took place yesterday and was More quietly conducted than any we have seen for years. The polls were not closed till dark before which time it became necessary to put this paper to press. We shall be Able probably by our next tuesday to communicate the result in some half a dozen Dis its. Disclosures at hand. By the following remark copied from the Boston Atlas of the 15th, it will be seen that Steps have been taken to examine thoroughly into the management of he new York custom House. Quot the Secretary of the Treasury has appointed Hon. George Poindexter late u. S. Senator of miss Alfred Kelley Esq. Of Ohio and Hon. David Russell late m. C. From new York commissioners to proceed to new York and investigate the management of the custom House under Jesse Hoyt with Especial reference to the fraudulent passing of goods arid the stealing of goods from the Public stores the a rats that eat the malt Quot will now be exposed to the gaze of an indignant or. Dyott who was pardoned a Short Lime since by gov. Porter has been retaken by a police officer at the instance of some one or More of his creditors. He will probably be recommitted. Loss of the Schooner Convoy. The Schooner Convoy which cleared at Mobile on tuesday 4lh inst. In ballast for Atta Kapas was struck by a sudden Squall of wind on Friday 7th instant when about 43 Miles Southeast of Mobile Point Light House and was immediately capsized and lost. There was but one passenger on Board or. Mitchell of Louisiana who with the Captain and Crew took the Small boat and arrived in safety at Mobile Point on saturday 8th inst. At about 3 o clock p. M. The Schooner upset so suddenly that not a thing was saved except one trunk of clothing belonging to or. Mitchell. According to the Nantucket enquirer there was imported into the United states during the month of april 1841, 19,9.52 barrels or 628,488 Gallons of sperm Oil and 37,056 barrels or 1,-167,264 Gallons whale Oil by 21 ships 3 barks and 1 Brig. The return Home of the med Terra. Nean Squadron. Our readers will doubtless be surprised at the return Home of the United states Squadron of vessels i f War from the Mediterranean. So should we certainly have been had we not received information some Days do that advice had been transmitted by our minister at London to the commander of that Squadron of the great excitement in England on receipt of or. Pickens s report accompanied by some indication that the immediate return of that Squadron to the United states was advisable the station being one which in the event of a War with great Britain it would be entirely unsafe for it to remain in. We have no doubt that our information on the sub act though unofficial was substantially that the circumstance of so precipitate a return of the Squadron to port at Home leaving the immense Commerce of the United states unprotected in the Mediterranean is very much to be regretted and is besides calculated to spread an unnecessary alarm amongst americans abroad elsewhere As Well As in the Mediterranean cannot admit of a doubt. We Are admonished by the fact of such advice having been deemed necessary How much nearer we have been to the Point of actual hostilities with great Britain than was supposed in this country for nothing certainly but an absolute conviction of the probability of such a conflict could have induced our minister at London to take the responsibility of advising the return of our ships of War from that sea. What a lesson ought not this to be against such indiscretions As the report of or. Pickens ill considered and heedless As it was and a sustained either by the people or the executive of the United states what a warning against constituting committees of such importance As the committee on foreign relations out of Mere party men having no idea of any policy but what is suggested by party feeling we do not mean to apply this observation to or. Pickens particularly but to the party majority of one vote in the committe on foreign relations which sustained him the chair Man of it in making such a report not Only gratuitous in itself but under the circumstances of our pending relations with great Britain positively mischievous. The immediate consequence of the return of the Squadron under com. Jull will we presume be to expedite the departure of the Squadron under com. Morris which was understood to be fitting out for the purpose of relieving the Squadron now returned. A Nat. Intel. Dii. Dott Porter has pardoned or. Dott who it will be remembered was sentenced to three years imprisonment at Cherry Hill prison Philadelphia in the fall of 1839. The doctor has served about one half the time for which he was sentenced and is now More than seventy four years old. His release was petitioned for by numerous citizens of Philadelphia from the Louisville journal. The Gigantic wonder of the animal creation has at length arrived in our City and will be exhibited at the Washington Hall As soon As the Bones which Are now contained in fourteen Large boxes can be put together. This the proprietor informs us will be near the close of the week. In the mean time we will Endeavor from data furnished us in a printed description of the Skeleton to give our readers some idea of this mighty wonder of creation As such it May Well be regarded for in comparison with the Missouri us mammoths mastodons and All other hitherto discovered monsters Are but Small affairs. We have already Given some account of this animal and of the circumstances under which it was exhumed we have now before us an accurate Meas Urc Meni of the principal inn of of Trio Olio Otora Tel Iii will serve to give a belter idea of its immense size and huge proportions. The Skeleton measures 32 feet in length and 15 in height. The Siead measures from the tip of the nose to spine of the neck 6 feet. From the Edge of the upper lip measuring along the roof of the Mouth to the socket of the Eye is three feet from the lower Edge of the upper lip to the first Edge of the front tooth 20 inches. Each jaw has four Teeth and the upper jaw has besides two enormous tusks. The Teeth Are each four inches Broad. The nose projects 15 inches Over the lower jaw. The tusks Are 10 feet Long exclusive of 1 foot and 3 inches which forms the Root and is buried in the Skull. The right Tusk was found firm in the head and remained fixed in its socket during its excavation and its transportation to st. Louis which fortunate circumstance enables us to know the exact position and situation which the tusks occupied in the head of the animal during its life. They were carried by him almost horizontally bending somewhat Down and then coming with their Points up again making a sweep from extremity to extremity in a straight line across the head of 15 feet. The longest rib measures 5 feet 6i inches in length the shortest 2 feet 3 inches. The Scapula or shoulder Blade is 3 feet 1 Inch in length and 2 feet 7 inches in breadth. The length of the humorous or fore Arm is 3 feet 5 inches and its greatest circumference 3 feet 3 inches. The femur or thigh Bone is 4 feet and Inch Long and inches in the feet of the animal appear to have been webbed. The four foot has four toes and a thumb. The longest toe measures 1 foot 8 inches the shortest 1 foot and the thumb 7 inches. All the Bones of the animal Are firm and contain no marrow. The cavity of the brain is quite Large. The proprietor or. Koch in his printed description of the animal makes Tho following remarks on its supposed habits and nature. The animal has been without doubt an inhabitant of water courses such As Large Rivers and lakes which is proven by the formation of the Bones 1st, his feet were webbed 2d, All his Bones were solid and without marrow As the aquatic animals of the present Day 3d, his ribs were too Small and slender to resist the Many pressures and bruises they would be subject to on land 4th, Bis legs Are Short and thick 5th, his Tail is Flat and Broad 6th, and last his tusks Are so situated in the head that it would be utterly impossible for him to exist in a timbered country. His food consisted As much of vegetables As flesh although he undoubtedly consumed a great abundance of the latter and was capable of feeding himself with his fore foot after the manner of the Beaver or Otter and possessed also like the hypo Pota Mous the faculty of walking on the Bottom of Waters and Rose occasionally to take air. The singular position of the tusks has been very wisely adapted by the creator for the Protection of the body from the Many injuries to which it would be exposed Wiiilie swimming or walking under the water and in addition to this it appears that the animal has been covered with the same Armor As the Alligator or perhaps the Mig therium. Prospective duties their extent. As the time approaches when Congress will assemble to discuss among other things the question of an increased Tariff it May be Well to give some definite Ness to our ideas touching the extent to which the proposed changes in our system of import duties should go. The term. Tariff is vague it May mean a system of High duties or of Low. When or. Clay delivered his celebrated speech at Hanover last summer that masterly production was regarded As a True and Complete exposition of the policy contended for a the whig party. It is so regarded still. The views set Forth in that address concerning the Tariff were referred to by or. Tyler in a letter written by him before the election. We published an extract from this letter not Long since in which the Tariff doctrines of the Hanover speech were fully adopted. The following is the passage in or. Clay s speech referred to 3d. That the policy of protecting and encouraging the productions of american Industry entering into Competition with the rival productions of foreign Industry be adhered to and maintained on the basis of the principles and the spirit of the Compromise of March 1828. Protection and National Independence Are in my opinion identical and synonymous. The principle of abandonment of the one cannot be surrendered without a forfeiture of the other. Who with just Pride and National sensibility can think of subjecting the projects of our Industry to All the taxation and restraints of foreign Powers without Effort on our part to counteract their prohibitions and burdens by suitable countervailing legislation the question cannot be ought not to be one of principle but of measure and degree. I adopt that of the Compromise act not because that act is in repeatable but because it met with the Sanction of the nation. Stability with moderate and certain Protection is far More important than instability the necessary consequence of High Protection. But the Protection of the Compromise act will be adequate in most if not As to All the Twenty Fer cent which it stipulates Cash duties Home valuations and the list of free articles inserted j in the act for the particular advantage of the manufacturer will ensure i Trust sufficient Protection. All together they will amount probably to not less than thirty per greater extent of Protection than was secured prior to Tho act of 1828, which no one stands up to defend. Now the valuation of foreign goods is made not by the american authority except in suspected cases but by foreigners and they assess the value and we the duty but As the duty depends in most cases upon the value it is Manifest that a Hose who assess the value fix the duty. The Home valuation will give our government what it rightfully possesses both the Power to ascertain the True value of the thing which it taxes As Well As the amount of that tax. Will it not be found when All parties come to a fair understanding on this subject that there is in reality very Little difference of opinion among the representatives of the different portions of the Union no new ground is proposed to be taken the basis of the Compromise act remains As it was established in 1833 and the new modification of the system on that basis is expected to include nothing that was not provided for by the terms of the act. An exigency has Arisen which it was foreseen might arise a necessity for an increase of Revenue. Will it be said that the principle of Protection is to be included in the new modification Well it was fully recognized in the settlement of 1833. It has never been abandoned and it never can be without an abandonment of National sovereignty. In re modelling the Tariff upon the basis of the Compromise the principle of Protection will run throughout the framework of the system Pari pass with the principle of Revenue but it need not go . Arner. In after life has made a Home for himself happier even than that which his childhood knew. There Are certain feelings of humanity and those too among the Best that can find an appropriate place for their exercise Only by one s own fireside. There is a sacredness in the privacy of that spot which it were a species of desecration to violate. He who seeks wantonly to invade it is neither More nor less than a villain and hence there exists no surer test of the debasement of morals in Community than the disposition to tolerate in any Mode the Man who disregards the sanctifies of private life. In the turmoil of the world let there be at least one spot where the poor Man May find affection that is disinterested where he May indulge a Confidence that is not Likely to be abused. The Are not the times better Quot ask the Loco focus. Quot did you not Promise us better limes As soon As Harrison should be elected Quot say they. Well we premised to Reform the government to Stop the squandering of Money and to restore Public Prosperity but we promised no miracles. Be addressed men of sense not fools. The mischief which the country suffers were brought on by a series of bad measures and can no More be repaired in an instant than a patient reduced almost to a Skelton by quackery can be restored to vigorous health and strength in a Day. The Van Buren system is Yei in full operation so far As the Laws Are concerned. The sub Treasury is the Law of the land and must remain so until the meeting of Congress. The Locos denounce the extra session As unnecessary they wish us to go on with the same Experiment Ivsich has failed in their hands with their sub Treasury their hard Money exaction of duties their suspended slate Banks their no currency and no Tariff and no National Bank and yet hold us responsible for not making the times better. We cannot do much under their we must abandon it and return to the old one under which we formerly prospered. We Hope Congress will lose no time in doing this. There can be no sound currency till in is done and until there is a better currency business cannot revive but journal. Ohio currency and Trade. From the third number of a series of articles in the Ohio state journal upon the currency paper Money the Banks amp a. We extract the passages annexed they deserve consideration Quot currency being the agent of Commerce and of All the various transactions of bargain and Sale among men it would certainly not be advisable to increase it Over and above these several kinds of transactions nor is it believed that any disposition has Ever been evinced by the american people to produce a redundant currency except perhaps when they May have been seduced by improvident measures of the government. The question however which we propose Here to consider is what would be a proper amount of currency this we think will at All times depend upon the circumstances of the country from 1 year to year. The Standard by which we would regulate it would be the amount of the import and Export Trade of the country. Presuming that a proposition so reasonable will require no argument to enforce it but will at once be agreed to let us proceed to ascertain the amount of our imports and exports for the last year and compare it with the amount of currency known to exist. By reference to the official reports of the Treasury department at Washington it will be seen that the average annual imports into this country greatly exceed exports but we shall be Content to consider them As equal. The same reports discover the fact that of the whole amount of specie which finds its Way into the United states one half is always absorbed by the Banks. The Board of canal fund commissioners at their recent cession have ascertained from a careful inspection of official documents that the exports of Domestic produce from Ohio during the year 1840, have amounted to $19,600,000. This sum added to the probable imports during the same period will amount to $39,200,000. Hero then we have a Trade amounting to the sum of $ 39,-200,000, and requiring an equal amount of currency to sustain it to say nothing of the immense additional sum that would in the mean time be Indis sensible for carrying on the dealings Between individuals through All the various relations of the Domestic Circle. Let us now proceed to inquire what has been the of our currency during the same time. On the 20lh of december of last year the Bank commissioners made a report to the legislature from which it appears that on the 30th of september preceding the specie in nil the Banks amounted to $1,265,000 this however cannot be regarded As currency because it was locked up in the vaults of the Banks but adopting the estimate of the Secretary of the Treasury it will authorize us to set Down the circulating specie at an equal the Bank commissioners also report that the paper of the Ohio Banks then in circulation amounted to $4,357,000. These sums added together will amount to the sum of $5,622,000, which is All we have had with which to carry on a Trade of $39,200,000 except indeed a very scanty sum consisting of All the notes of Banks of other states a which in All probability did not exceed the notes of Ohio Banks circulating out of the state. Here then is presented an Ormy of facts which ought to be conclusive in the Case and which if carefully examined and decided upon dispassionately by men of All pursuits and occupations but especially the men of business to whose judgment they More particularly commend themselves the result cannot be otherwise than a conviction that compared with the necessary demand there has net at any time been in this country a redundant currency and that All the clamor about expansion inflation &c., has originated with political mount Ebanks alike ignorant of the subject and reckless As to consequence. Upper Hannibal journal says that Northern Missouri May safely Challenge any other part of the United states in producing the articles of tobacco and hemp. It is believed that from one thousand to fifteen Hundred Hogsheads of tobacco will be shipped at Hannibal alone the coming season. The of Tea is carried on to a considerable extent in England. A trial lately took place in London at which it was ascertained that the individual arraigned had an immense assortment of a spurious article made of Blackthorn Hawthorn and Fern leaves. He had a regular manufactory with dying apparatus and All. Various samples were exhibited with different proportions of pure Tea which it was said were extensively sold. Extraordinary journey and is stated that an English traveler. Sir George Simpson who recently set out from Liverpool and left Montreal on his wild route a few Days since is now engaged in one of the most extraordinary adventures of modern times. He is on his Way round the world and expects to travel in All 36,850 Miles. Thus he left Liverpool and arrived at Halifax and Boston by steam packet a distance of 3,500. Thence he went to Montreal by water a distance of 370 Miles. He left the City in a Canoe and intends to visit French River lakes Huron Superior White fish Lake of the Woods and Winnipeg until he reaches the red River settlement being a distance of 2,150 Miles All by canoes. He then proposes to travel on horseback and on foot to the Rocky mountains a distance of upwards of 1,300 Miles. He will then proceed Down the Columbia River a distance of 1,110 Miles by boat until he arrives at fort Vancouver. He will then travel on the Pacific Ocean by Steamboat and ships upwards of 15,000 Miles will visit the Sandwich islands Kamchatka and various other places. He will proceed to Siberia and travel 800 Miles on horse backs then along the Lona a distance of 2,640 Miles in boats. He will take horses and after visiting the regions North of Europe will visit Perm Orza Moscow st. Petersburg and prox need Home through Europe being a distance of 9,500 Miles in carriages and on horseback. His calculation is to be absent the whole of this year and the greater part of . Tribune. From the st. Louis Republican of tie 20th. The great forger arrested. Yesterday our City was thrown into. I great concur Sion by a report that Parker j alias Draper alias Orr the great forger at Louisville Cincinnati and elsewhere was arrested. The whole in our opinion �5 an entire mistake and we feel Well satisfied that the Man arrested has no connexion with the matter the arrest and facts against the accused Are about these an English gentleman who Calls himself Scott who had been boarding at the Astor House n. Y., left there in april taking with him a horse he had hired. At Doylestown pa., be sold the House Saddle and bridle and receipted for the Money under the name of Jno. Williams from thence he came Westward through Harrisburg Pittsburg amp a. To Sti Louis. A or. Snyder who had resided at Doyles town and who had suspicion of Williams went to. Philadelphia where he gave a description of a s person which was believed to agree with the person who had attempted to pass the forged Check on the Girard Bank. From Philadelphia he followed to new York where the description also agreed. From Nevi York he pursued him to this place and yesterday he was arrested at thai City hotel. Williams upon be ing arrested confessed to his connexion with the horse affair but denied Oil participation in the alleged for Geries and gave up a letter which he had written but had not mailed to one of the partners of the Aston House in relation to the horse. This Williams we saw at the Astor it ouse at a period which totally excludes the idea of his being the forger. He is we believe the natural son of or Sutton late speaker of British House of parliament and has spent some time in new York under the name of Scott. That he is a wild Chicken and not entirely Clear of blame in the affair of the horse and changing his name we have no doubt but that he is Parker of the great Forderer we do not see any thing to justify nevertheless the recorder thought proper to hold him. To bail in the sum of $10,000 in default of which he was committed to jail. Few of our citizens Are aware of the amount of business done on that part of the mad River and Lake Erie rail Road Between Sandusky and Republic a distance of thirty Miles the Only part of Tjie Road finished. A gentleman has shown us the report of the treasurer from the 12th to the 30th of april and Al so for the first eight Days of the present month from which we take the following amount received from 12th to Solh of april passengers $194 00 freight 984 00 $1,178 06 amount received the first eight Days in May passengers $108 75 freight 696 88 this certainly Speaks Well for the Urbana citizen. Home affections. By or. Hawkes. The heart has memories that never die. The rough rubs of the world cannot obliterate them. They Are memories of Home Early Home. There is magic in the very sound. There is the old tree under which the Light hearted boy swung in Many a summer Day yonder the River in which he Learned to swim there the House in which he knew a Parent s love and found a Parent s Protection nay there is the room in which he romped with brother or with sister Long since alas Laid in the Yard in which he must soon be gathered overshadowed by Yon old Church whither with a joyous troop like himself he has often followed his parents to worship with and hear the Good old Man who gave him to god in Why even the very schoolhouse associated in Youthful Days with thoughts of Ferulla and tasks now comes Back to bring pleasant remembrances of Many an occasion that called Forth some Goi serous exhibition of the noblest traits of human nature. There he Learned to feel some of his Best emotions. There perchance he first met the being Olio by her love and tenderness the Washington Globe howls most piteously Over the removals from office that Are taking place under the new administration. The Globe when its own party was in Power defended the most indiscriminate proscription no Man no matter what had been his Tho country who entertained political sentiments Adverse to the party in Power was permitted to hold an office he was removed to make room for some noisy bar room politician and the Globe pronounced it All right and proper. Even the venerable general Solomon Van Rensselaer who had fought and bled for his country and who bears the Marks and evidence of his service and his bravery upon his body was thrust from the Post office in Albany and a hungry partizan put in his place. This infamous act of party proscription did not Shock the feelings of the editor of the Globe nor of his party but now when the whig party comes into Power and removes Loco Foco office holders for cause for converting their offices into political engines or neglecting to perform their duly these modest leaders of the Guillotine party affect to be thrown into spasms of grief at such awful proscription. Shame upon the vile hypocrites a Hudson River chronicle. Counterfeit notes Cairo Bank. The Public have been several times cautioned against receiving counterfeit notes on the Bank of i Cairo of the denomination of $5. They Are now in common circulation. Two of them were shown to us to Day and a very Little scrutiny will detect the counterfeit notes Are neither so Long or so wide As the genuine ones the paper is oily and bad the president s signature is too heavy the engraving of men on the Vignette is scarcely seen though Plain enough in the genuine notes and the representation of a face under the figure 5, is bad and close scrutiny should be observed in taking the five Dollar . Louis Gaz. Luminous body of general Wayne who died 80 or 40 years ago at Erie pa., and was buried near the Lake was disinterred and removed by his son and was found to be in a very perfect slate of preservation. Those who known Genera Al Wayne recognized his features at once.
