Butthere is that young man, with dejected visage, who sibr next to him eee, the fire of intelligence still flickers in that eye of his; the traces of early education have net yet-been. wholly -obliterated from that intellecrual "forehead by the demon of dissipation ; and although it is evident his peregrinations latieirly have been through the very sewers and puddles of life, and the horizon around hint has been murky and lowering, it- is equally apparent that he commenced life's jpurney under, fair different and more favorable auspices. Troops of friends clustered round him;-his presence was bailed in public, for his intelligence shed a light on every subject which he touched ; and he was welcomed to the social .circle, for his wit and vivacky made the gay gayer and infused .spirit of mirth and liveliness into the more dull and sullen- Why did he, placed as "he was on the thornless path of iffe, plunge into the abyss of" intemperance ? Was it disappointed, love or blighted prospects that diJ it ? Did his early dreams of fame and ambition end in a fleeting show,' or dissolve before the sun of reality like the morning vapor ? He is now an inebriate, that is certain ; but 'tis certain that other than physical or constitutional causes have- made him what he is. Instead of meriting rebuke he claims pity. Kind counsel and friendly admo nitions might win him back from the error of his ways throw him into that augean stable of moral 'corruption, the .calaboose, and -you extinguish for ever the lost epar.k of early-imbibed pride and self-respect which still burned, though dimly, in his bosom.

" " . , Washington, Wednesday, Aug. 18. To.the EdiUrt of the Picayune : ..'..' In writing this letter I am compelled, in the outset, to acknowledge that I have been guilty of a hieh misdemeanor I remained in the.Senate Chamber during an entire Executive 6eion! The way it happened, was as follows : In the early part of the day, 1 took my customary pla e in the rear gallery ot the &enatecnamDer,aireci- - n ' Iv behind the huge gilt eagle which spreads its wines over . the chair of the President of the Senate. A drowsy debate upon the Land Dis tribution Bill, proved too much for me, and I fell asleep, sinking upon the bench. When a motion was made and carried to go into Execu tive Session, there was no other person in the gallery, and tha door keeper, thinking it cer tainly empty, locked the door. A thundering burst of eloquence from Senator Clay, awoke me a moment after the door was closed: Dis covering mv situation. I saw it would be better , for me to remain perfectly quiet, rather than make a rumpus. I'soon found that the norai nations of President Tyler, for a new Cabinet, were under consideration. As the claims of two of your fellow-citizens were freely discussed, I do not hesitate to send yeu a sketch of the de bate, because I know it will he read with great interest. I ' , When 1 first awoke, Mr. Clay was oppasing with singular zeal and earnestness, the noraina tion of Alexander' McLeod, (recently escaped from the New York authorities,) for Secretary of War. But it was useless. ' McLeod's suc cess in bis Caroline exploit carried the day, and his nomination was confirmed by a vote of 50 to 1. The same with the nomination of Justice Wiley, of New York, for Secretary of the Treasury; John Smith, for Secretary of State, and Orator Emmons, for Attorney General. When the nemination of the " Great I Am," for Minister Plenipotentiary and Envoy Extraordinary to the " Celestial Empire," came, a scene of violence and' disorder ensued. Mr. Benton declared he would "consider his legislative career at an end" if that nomination was confirmed.' Mr. Rives said that for one he concurred in all that had been said by the Senator from Missouri. He could never be induced to sanction so improper an appointment. He bad been ridiculed for bis adhesion to Virginia ab stractions, but be had been 'born and brought up on Virginia abstractions, and he intended to live and die by them, unshaken, unseduced, un- terrihed. The appointment of the " Great I Am" would be a fatal blow, at State rights. Much as he admired the courage and determi nation evinced by that distinguished son of Vir ginia, John Tyler, at tbe present crisis, he felt himself compelled to denounce the attempt to I'uwt the " Great I Am" upon the Celestial Empire, as totally unauthorized and unwarranted hy the Constitution. That sacred instrument did not say one' word about the " Great I Am" or the " Celestial Empire." . , The most powerful and eloquent speech of this eminent statesman, undoubtedly defeated the nomination, for it was rejected by a vote of 26 to 25. The nomination of your friend, of the Advertiser, the Judge, for - Secretary of tbe Navy, was next acted upon. " The Demo-thenes of the West," .Senator Allen, of Ohio, slowly arose and said he bad almost concluded to vote against this nomination. He said he had no personal knowledge of the gentleman, but he had been informed that when' upon tlie bench he had given many erroneous decisions. Before he. Would vote for him, therefore, lie wanted evidence that he possessed tbe proper i - . - mi - i .i quaiincaiions. x nis npeecn arouseu ine lion of South Carolina, John C. Calhoun. His de fence of the Judge was thrilling in eloquence, destructive in argument,' and annihilating in its sarcasm. He said he was proud to know that the Judge was a native of .South Carolina, and to call hi.n his friend. Here,' said he, taking a roll of paper from the desk, is his portrait, and he unfolded it and held it up to the view of the" Senate. " You have made' a mistake," said Benton, " that is.Stillman's." " Excuse me," continued Calhonn," don't you think I know Stjlhnan from the Judge ? Look at that face, Senators, -tt . T,e front of Jove, himself; An eye like Mara, .to threaten and command; A stature like tbe Herald Mercury New-lighted on a heaven-kissing hill; .. A corabiaation aod a form, indeed, . Whore every god hath net his seal -To givethe world assurance of a man " ."Thaf poetry has done my business,'1 said Allen,-jumping up; "I'll vote for him if it breaks .my back." , Mr. Merrick said he was not to beeatisfied so easily. " The Judge has abased me like a pickpocket," said he, "be cause I wouldn't vete for Clay's Bank, I .should like to have that explained."-. "Vote for him and subscribe for his paper, and it will be fixed nicely," said Rives ; " that was the way I did.',,?? V " N. C noff ced," replied Merrick. ' Mr. Gerrymander, of.Connecticut, said tbeJ recent enquiries upon agricultural subjects. propounded by the Judge in the Advertiser, had satisfied bim that no man was capable of doing more for the country; - Besides, said he, did be not report the speech of Gen. Harrison at Dayton? that act alone entitles him to the eternal honor and gratitude of hia country. The allusion to agriculture and to the Dayton speech called forth a loud cheer,' from eight of the Senators the most enpial violation of decorum ever witnessed in tne Senate chamber. - The vote was taken and the nomination unan- imoutly confirmed, ifler which an adjournment was carried. There was a little fracas between Behtorfand Clay, which I ought, not to forget to mention.. While 'the last appoiutment was under consideration, -Benton said he " did not; care two skips of a louse " whether or not the the nomination was confirmed. --Mr. Clay re- marked that that was the second time the Sena- or from M issouri had used that expression he believed ho Mcr'atched hit head for it this time. BenloD7-( 'fiercely) Did you mean any-thrag personal What, sir r T 1 n00! Awred7yi-Oh, pot at all, sir. Well, "replied Benton, raanmin hia aeat. it is darned well for yotf, you didn't." .

S. -The bill was signed on the 25th, being the 11th day after its presentation. .So long had the President retained it,the apprehension of a veto became very-eeneral, and, after the tenth day had elapsed, it is said that one of the Committee oa Enrolled Bills waited upon General Washington, and very eagerly exclaimed rIVow we have you! i ne mil nas oecome a law bv tbe Constitution!" But the President that dav finally decided to Bisrn the bill, and rc turned it accordingly. The President bad great difficulties in regard to it, and a veto mes- ... i at m-j: sage was actually preparcu uy .nr. aitiuisuu, Dy request, ana is now exmui. The bill to renew the charter of the old bank n 1811 was defeated by the casting vote-of George Clinton. The remarks addressed to the Senate by him on the occasion were pre pared, it is said, -by a distinguished member of tne present senate, wno iook a prominent part against the bill in the debates at that time. Mr. Clinton said, among other things, "In tbe course of a long life, I have found that government is not to be strengthened by an assumption of doubtful powers,, but by a wise and energetic "execution of those which are incon-testible." The charter of the Bank of 1815 passed Congress on tbe 20th of January, and was vetoed by President Madison on the 30th of the same month. The charter of the Bank of 1816 passed Congress on. the 5th of April, and was approved by tbe President on the 10th of tbe same month. Tbe bill to renew tbe charter of the same bank was presented to President Jackson on the 4th of July, 1832, and was vetoed by him on the 10th of the same month. While the charter of 1791 was before President Washington for consideration, he required tbe opinions in writing of his Attorney General, i Mr. Randolph) of the Secretary of State, (Mr. efferson) and both reporting the act to be unconstitutional, the President called for the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury, (Mr. Hamilton.) This was adverse to the first two, and contributed to induce the President to-sign the bill. Mr. Jefferson's opinion was concluded with the following paragraphs relative to the veto power: " The negative' of the President is the shield provided by tbe Constitution to protect against the invasions of the Legislature: 1st, the rights of the' Executive; 2d, of the Judiciary; 3d, of tne. states and State Legislatures. Tbe present is the case of a right remaining exclusively with the states, and is, consequently. one of those intended bv the Constitution to be. placed under his protection. " It must be added, however, that, unless the President's mind, en a view of every thing which is urged for and against the bill, is tolerably clear that it is unauthorized by tbe' Constitution ; if the pro and the C0n hanr so eveu aa to balance hia judgment, a juat respect for the wisdom of the Legislature would naturally decide tbe balance in favor of their opinion ; it is chiefly for cases where they are clearly mwicu uy error, amouion, or interest, mat tne Constitution has placed a check in the negative of the President." a vKHirrr.RwiDe menmond Star says: When they wish to send a special express' out South, they fasten a sardine box to the tail, and a long clawed tom-cat to tbe back of a stout dog, and let him go. He generally does up the despatch-en as he goes along." Cor poral, you never told a bigger one in all your feprn days. . B3" It is stated in the United States Gazette that the directors of1 the United States Bank nave re-appointed Samuel Jaudon, Esq., to proceed to England, and act as agent for that .institution. We do not learn whether the agency is general or special. The same paper remarks, that the stocks in England, held from the" bank as collateral security, render necessary the presence of some well informed agent to represent the interests of the bank, and to expalin the true character of the various stocks! Found at Last. The grand jury of New York city have indicted one Mr. Justice Wiley, who, as an attorney at law, obtained, for pay, Ihe money stolen from the Frederick. County Bank (Md.) This JUstice Wiley is supposed to have confederates, whose names' may come out upon the trial. He is a justice of one oC the ward courts that have the jurisdiction of petty cases. He is held to bail in the sum of f 30,000 for his appearance. .
