On motion of Mr. Ewing, the Senate took up the resolution submitted by Mr. Bestos, for printing — copies of the report of the Committee of the House of Representatives, on the affairs of the Bank of the United States, and — copies of the report and documents ac companying the same, and the resolution hav. ing been amended on motion of Mr. DALLAs, se as to include the reports of the minority of the committee, the first blank was filled with the number of five thousand, and the second blank with one thousand, and the resolution was agreed to. Mr. Dallas gave notice that he should, on Tuesday next, call up the bill to recharter the Bank of the United States. On motion of Mr. Smith, the bill authorising a subscription to the stock of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road Company, was taken up, and Mr. SM11 h addressed the Senate in its support but before he had proceeded far in his re msrks, a message was received from the House of Representatives by Mr. Clark, their Clerk, informing the Senate of the death of the Honorable Mr. HUNT, a member of that House, from the State of Vermont, and that the funeral would take place to-day at four o'clock. Mr. Paev tiss, of Vermont, then rose, and af. ter a handsome and appropriate eulogy on the life and character of the deceased, submitted the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted. - *... . Resolved, That the Senate will attend the funeral of the Honorable Jonathan HUNT, late a member of the House of Representatives, ftom the State of Vermont, to-morrow, at four o'clock in the evening, and as a testimony of respect for the memory of the deceased, they wiligo into mourning, and wear crape round the left arm for thirty days. On motion of Mr. Webstan, the Senate then adjourned over to to-morrow, at eleven o'clock. In the House of Representatives, yesterday, after the reception of a message from the Senate, with various bills, Mr. H. Evenett, of vermont, rose and announced the melancholy intelligence of the death of General Jonathan Hunt, a representative in Congress from that state. Mr. EveRETT briefly, but impressively, performed this painful duty, and paid an eloquent tribute to the memory of his doceased friend and colleague, whose talents and as: siduity, he observed, during the years which he had sat in that Hall, were alike honorable and useful to the House and to his constituents. His place there might be filled, but, it was in the bosom of his family, and amidst the circle of his friends, that the irreparable loss which they had sustained, would be most deep. ly felt. He concluded by moving that the House testify its respect to the memory of the Hon. Jonathan Hunt, deceased, late a mem. ber from the State of Vermont, by wearing mourning during the remainder of the session. The resolution was unanimously agreed to. Mr. Eva Rurr, of Vermont, said, he had no further notice to submit. It was the desire of the deceased that his funeral should be private,

from his late residence. Mr. Evrastr, of a Massachusetts, said it had been the invariable practice, since the adoption of the Constitu. tion, to pay a public homage of their respect to i ; the memories of those members of Congress : *. who had died whilst in the performance of thei: ) is public duties. . He moved that a message be it: sent to the Senate to notify them of the death ir of Mr. Hunt. The motion was agreed to a Mr. TAYEon alluded to two cases which had to occurred wherein members, previous to their & decease, had expressed a desire for a private funeral, and in which the House had nevertheless attended the funerals. It seemed proper to to him that a committee should be appointed to . make the requisite arrangements for attending to the funeral of their deceased friend. Mr. L. ... Condict suggested a modification that a reso- or lution be off. that this House do testify ..., its respect to the memory of the deceased, by attending his funeral to-morrow, in body, with , its Speaker and officers. The resolution, as so modified, was agreed to, and the committee was appointed.

Sir–I have seen with regret, in a letter from your correspondent at this place an unwarrantable attack on Col. Richard M. Johnson, of Kentucky. His course throughout the whole investigation was strictly honorable and uninfluenced by any particular transactions with the Bank of the United States. He was uniformly in favor of full inquiry into the proceedings of the bank and of introducing into the report every matter of sufficient public importance, and every transaction, the propriety of which might be questioned. Col. Johnson and myself concurred in every amendment to Judge Clayton's report. a - Your correspondent has also done injustice to Mr. McDuffie, whose course was, as it is always, fair and honorable. I must correct another error—whatever opinions the members of the committee may entertain of some of the transactions of the Bank of the United States, it is proper to cor. rect the impression that Messrs. Thos. Biddle and Co. were improperly favored by the president of the bank—such was not the opinion of the members of the committee generally.— They considered that the bank consulted its own interest. A majority of the committee doubted the policy of such large operations with any one house, as opposed to the ‘reneral interests of trade. I am, very respectfully, Your most ob’t servant, G. C.

Frtons. The GLohr. INDIAN HOSTILITIES. Information has been received from the Head Quarters of General Atkinson, dated the 27th of April, stating— “That the conduct of Black Hawk and his associates, reriders it necessary that he should at once take the field, and, as far as possible,

prevent them from doing any mischief; that Mr.

Gratiot, Indian agent, has just arrived from the Prophet Village. Black Hawk and his part

were there. Yesterday, they set out, in com: pany with the Prophet's band, for the purpose of taking a position on Rock River, some fifteen or twenty miles above Ogee's, now Dixon's fer. ry, where they are determined to hold out, in defianee of any force that can, they say, be sent against them. They have the British flag hoisted, under which the war-dance is constantly exhibited. They must be checked at onee, or the whole frontier will be in a flame.” General Atkinson proposes moving by Galena, and taking a position at Ogee, Dixon's ferry, on the

Fort Clark Road, and await there the ariival of .

The Globe, of the 17th, undertakes to demy the truth of the allegation that the Presi dent had used language relative to the assault

saults upon other members of Congress, for words spoken in debate. President's remarks, and it is possible that they may have been exaggerated; but certain it is, that the impression in this city is, that Houlton’s attack upon Mr. Stanbery received his appro bation—that he denounced Stanbery as a slan deter of private character; and said that if five ot six more members were treated in the same way, it would have a salutary effect upon the proceedings of both the Senate and the House. We do not pretend to give the words; but we have heard the names of Mr. Barringer, of the House of Representatives, and of Mr. Danforth, a respectable Presbyterian clergyman, and also that of Mr. Danforth's father, and another Pres. | byterian clergyman of this city, vouched as the persons who were present, and heard what did take place. We have also understood that Mr. Danforth conceived it to be his duty to remonstrate against the language of the Presidens; and that he manifested great excitement on the occasion. The friends of the Presidentinue House, having refused to permit an

way, undertaken to deny it, we conceive it to *our duty to name the individuals who can Eve the truth. These rumors have assumed a *pe which should make it as desirable to the President, if he be innocent, as to others that they should be investigated. - . .

P. S. Since the above was prepared for the Press we learn that Mr. Barringer asked to be ocused from voting on a proposition for inqui. o, on the ground that he had heard the remarks of the President. If rumor had done "Justice to the Chief Magistrate, it was the du. ty of Mr. Barringer to have contradicted the ' ' 'sports. As he did not do so, we must believe s that they are founded in truth.

Fito M. The Moni le Regist ER.

“Highly important to settlers on the Choctaw Lands.-A letter from the Choctaw agency in the State of Mississippi, addressed to a gentleman in this city, under date of April 8th, states that - o

“An order has just reached the agency, ordering all the white people out of the

Choctaw nation, and advising the approach

of troops up the Yazoo, to enforce the order.” It is estimated that from seven to eight hundred, and perhaps a thousand families from A

negotiation of the Choctaw treaty, and have commenced cultivating the lands under the expectation of acquiring titles when they shall be brought into market. If the order of the Government is enforced, it will occasion the most disastrous loss and distress to these emigrants. It will be recollected, however, that, by the provisions of the treaty, it is stipulated that no white persons shall be permitted to enter upon any of the lands for a period of three years from the date of the negotiation, and the settlers ought to have been aware that it would become the duty of the Government to remove them—at any rate should the Indians require it. It is understöod that many of the Indians have encouraged the settling of the whites among them, as it afforded them the opportunity of disposing of their effects to advantage. We cannot but indulge the hope that some compromise may be effected that will protect the emigrants from the utter ruin that must await their expulsion.” “Interesting to settlers in the Creek Nation.—" The marshal of this district has received instructions from the Secretary of War to repair to the district ceded, by the late treaty, and give notice to all persons, except those allowed by the treaty to remain till their corps are gathered, to remove within as short a period as practicable, having due regard to their local position and other circumstances. The marshal is instructed to fix the period, and make it publicly known. In the execution of this delicate trust, the marshal is directed to be as conciliatory as may be compatible with the object to be attained, and to apply force only when necessary, and after having fully explained to the parties their own duties, the rights of the Indians, the obligations of the government, and the instructions he has received. Should it become necessary, the commanding officer at Fort Mitchell is directed to aid the marshal with the military

was certainly the interest of the Indians to in-
vite emigration and consequent competition for
the lands. They are compelled to sell in a giv.

are permitted to explore them? It seems that

The answer is obvious. The policy is to
place the settlers at the hercy of the Indians,
or rather of those who control the Indians, and
thus enhance the value of the Indian reserva-

fovored speculators.

they will deserve, as they certainly will receive,
the censure of their constituents. There is

is opposed to favoritism and fraud. -

The Nashville Republican says :

“A coalition apparently of such heterogeneous materials, would require for its justification causes of the most vital and imperious nature to the welfare of the country. It is possible, in the history of a government, that an exigency might arise, when duty and patriotism would require of political leaders, who had before been opposed to each other, on principle and in feeling, to change their course and combine their efforts to effect some great good for, or avert some great evil from, their country. The object for which they had thus, for the time, lot aside their usual principles of action, and accustomed hostility, must be. obvious, must be of the highest nature, demanding at once in the estimation of the nation such a sacrifice. Is this the case in the present instance Who would outrage truth and decency so far as to pretend that it is "

This is a comment upon the charge that a coalition had taken place between Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Clay. The admission that “an exigen: cy might arise when duty and patriotism would

not require such a sacrifice offeeling, But the error of the writer belongs to his school. It tests the interests'of the country by OFFICE 3 as if the prosperity, the happiness of the Anjerican people depends upon the question of whether Gen. Jackson or Mr. Clay be the President of the United States. We notice the article for the purpose of denying, first, that there is any coalition between Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Clay, or their mutual friends; and of 'denying, likewise, the inference which the writer would draw from this fact. We deny that it follows, as a matter of course, that, General Jackson ought to be re-elected, because Mr. Calhoun and hisfriends have not entered into the support of Mr. Clay, as a rival candidate. We notice it, also, that we may say, that we consider the question of who is President of the United States, to be of small importance, compared with the great question of TAX. ATION, which is nothing, more nor less, than the question of liberty itself. Upon this ques: tion, Mr. Calhoun and his friends are opposed to both Gen. Jackson and Mr. Clay. Upon this question, Mr. Van Buren, the favorite candidat. of the Nashville Republican, and Mr. Clay stand together. Between them there is a coa: tition resting on the combination of ambition and monopoly. . . we consider Gen.
