Mr. Ogle ef Feen. repretented fanners bat ot men who wished person to labor for them at a certain low. Would any respectable farmer, himself, Mr. O. asked, agree to leave bis farm to manage itself, when he knew that if he did, he and hi family would become beggars? Certainly be would not t he pay those who work for him, and would expect to be paid himtelf for hi sacrifices and labor in the discharge of pub - lie duties) and it wa a correct principle, he added, that public officers should be paid for their service. In regard to th sort of talent necessary for congrees, Mr. O. luggetted that a graduated scale of compensation might be made, ii, by trepanning, th brain or all tn members could be taken out, and their actual value ascertained by weight in which case he did not know but b might himtelf come in for small pay. But niae dollar a day, he humbly thought, wa a compensation mU enough for a just recompense for attendance here ; and, though he represented farmer, he had never heard it tug - getled that that wa too much. On thi subject, Mr. O. mid, he had no instruction from bis constituent! he should vote, therefore, not for popularity, but for what he constitutionally believed was just " Ha most sincerely believed, he repeatd,that men who served th public ought to be paid; and did - not consider it n reasonable expectation that men were to devote their lives to thi object purely from patriotism. The question wa then taken en atriking out nine and inserting six, tbe daily compensation, and negatived. .. Some merely verbal amendment were made to the bin, and the committee rose and reported the bill. The bill being immediately taken np by the house - - ' . On uggetion of Mr. Goltton of Va. th question wa to divided, at t tak it separately on th compensation and oa th mileage. So th motion was negatived.

So the daily pay wat fixed at eight dollar. Mr. Little then moved to reconsider the vote by which the travelling expances had been reduced to six dollar, with a view to fix it at eight; which would make it stand on th tame footing at heretofore, but at a little higher rate. Mr. Comstock, of New - York, taid be should vote in favor of the proposed reconsideration Hit mind had arrived at the conclusion, that the compensation ougltt to be eight dollar per diem for attendance, and eight dollar for every twenty mile travel. When the question wat between 9 and 6, he had voted to ttrike out nini, but with the with that eight should be ultimate - lv substituted for it ' Mr. Pitkin, of Connecticut, declared himtelf of tha opinion that the allowance for pay and for mileage ought to be the same. This principle bad been loug settled, approved, and acquiesced in and he hoped woulJ not now be varied. He hoped, therefore; gentlemen would not be deterred from voting for a reconsideration of the former vote on this point, by any consideration fo. reign to the merits of the question. The quettion on reconsideration was than taken, and decided in the sffirmatire, and the' al lowance for mileage wat died at eight dollar for every 20 miles by a considerable majority. After an unsuccessful motion by Mr. Cobb to adjourn, and an equally unsuccessful attempt by Mr. Morton, to have the yea and nay t ordered oa tne question The bill wat ordered to be engrossed for a third reading to - morrow, without a division. Mr. Wendover, from the committee on the subject, made a report, accompanied by a bill. to alter (he flag of the United States ; which wat twice read. The bouse adjourned. wcDivasnav, tairuaar 7.

After breakfast thi mominir, Georcre, a cer - vant, came into the dining roirn, and told me that a gentleman wa in my room, waiting to w . 1 . J ee me. t lieppea into my iwm, sua sui cuiui Anderson wa there. He handed me a letter, observing at the aame time, that he had prepared that letter, for me, and that perhap it would require some explanation. I read over the letter with attention j and, having done to, observed to Col - Anderson it was a very surprising communication. I then started to Mr. Wilson' room, immediately adjoining my own.. When in the. act. or opening my own door, he begged I would not show the letter, l maue no rcpiy to mis, out sicppcu into air. Wilson' room, and asked him to do me the favor to walk into my room. Thi Mr. Wilson did, following: on immediately behind me. After we bad rot into my room, in the pre sence of Col,. Anderson I handed the letter to Mr. Wilson, and, observed that it wa a very extraordinary communication, requested bim to read it When Mr. Wilson bad read, or was nearly done reading the letter, I told Col Andsrton that I repelled with indignation and contempt the otter he made me m tne letter. Col. Anderson said, he asked my pardon ; that it wa designed only as a small compensation for the extra trouble be expected to give the committee or claim in examining the claim from the Michigan territory, and exposing the conduct of the British during tire war ; that it wa foreign from hi intention to attempt a - ny tiling like a bribe i and requested me to burn the letter or give it to him. I told him I should do neither that hi offence wa unpar donable, uch a I could not forgive; and or dered nun to leave the room instantly. Col Anderson then begged pardon and asked for - givene with excessive earnestnes. I told him I should not listen to none of hi apolo - Piet ; that hi offence wa an attack upon the imcgniy ui iwiongrcii generally, suiu upon mine personally t trial no one thou ia ever nave my pardon or expect my forjrvenet who should suppose me capable of uch an influence at he had attempted to practise upon me. Again I told CoL Anderson to leave my room. He ad vanced to the door, where be stood for some time, endeavoring to obtain my pardon, at he said. ' 1 told him it wa in vain to ask it ; that as a member of Cortgres and of the committe of claim it wa my duty to examine hi claim and, if just, support them i that hi offer was an attempt at bribery s wa an attempt to influence my mind in opposition to my duty, and a such could not be fortriven. He then desired me ei ther to burn the Fetter or give it to him. I replied that I should da neither, and again ordered him to leave my room. Whereupon he did leave the room, Mr. Wiuoit, after talking on the ub jeet of the letter for ome time, suggested to me the propriety of calling in Mr. Win. P, Maclay but, a Mr Wm, P. Maclay was not in, I asked Mr. William Maclay, the room mate of Mr. William P. Maclay, to come to my room. He complied with my request i and, shortly after he arrived in my room, Mr. Wm P. Maclay, were in my room.tt tbe time the servant called to Mr. Wilson, and said a gentleman wa below waiting to see him. Mr. Wilson walked out of tbe room, and was gone a few minute. After be returned, he observ ed that Col. Anderson was the person who sent for him i that CoL A' busmest wat to obtam hit interposition to put a (top to further proceeding on the subject of hi letter to me. The precise conversation between Mr. Wil ton and Col. Anderson can be related by the former with minuteness. . LEWIS WILLIAMS. Januaiyltt, 1818. Tbe naner navine been read throurh. Mr. W. rWilson, of Pennty Ivaoia, referrod to in the above narrative, handed in a statement or the facts which 111 under hi observation, eatirelycorTob rating those ttated by Mr. William at far at they came under .the observation of the former. Mr. Forty th, of Georgia, moved that the House ao come to tne following resolution s Resolved, That the Speaker do ittue hi warrant, directed to tbe Sergtant at Arm attending the House, commanding him to take into cutto - dy, wherever to be found, the body of John Anderson, and the tame in hit custody to keep, tub ject to the further order and direction of thi Mouse. Mr. Harrison, of Ohio, rose in consequence of ins name having neen referred te in vol. Anderson's letter. He bad met with coh Anderson be said, in f course of bi military service, and had ahvayt heard him regarded a a highly respectable man t and, well knowing bit services and the tuiTerinsiof hi family durinx the war, he had felt a warm interest io hi tavoi. In the course of tins morning col. Anderson had seat for liitn and hit friend col.

The had informed him. Mr. H. (aid, that they weald not justify bis cooeact t nor, were it brought before - the boose, could they tay any tniog m extenuation oi it. M r. Jofantan, of Kentucky, exprejeed hi sin cere regret on account of the occurrence which bad iftst taken place, not on account of the indi vidua! implicated though wraly be wa to be pitied but oa account of the' gee tie man from North - Carolina, who on thit occasion had taken that court dictated by a just sent of hi own honor and th dignity of hi official station and on account of the suffering inhabitant of Detroit ad Michigan generally, that they should hart misplaced inetr confidence I a one, whoa, until this day, Mr. J. taid, he had himtelf held in tbe highest estimation. It mutt have been infamy of motive, or the gromett ignorance of the nature of th representative character, that could have produced this unsrarrantaclt conduct. iAfr. Terry, of Connecticut, enquired whe ther, according to our forms of pneeedings and to our oonsbluljoual provmo - u, a general war - raat, as proposed, could be issued ! Wat it not opposed, in it nature, to the principle of civil liberty? . Th Speaker observed, that, ia th practice of the nous, napptly, instance were extremely rare, where such a warrant became accessary ; no such cat had occurred within hit observa tion. But, tbare could be no doubt, when offence wat coaamitted against th wivilege or dignity oi tn boot, it was perteetly m ill pow er to itsu a warrant to apprshatid the party of - Moding. Mr. Forsyth turned to a cat on record and be was sorry there wat rack a case on rscard where this proceedint; bad taken pracs, ia the yeul795, to which a bribe fa land had been J offered toon or more member., Mr. F. Uin conformed hit motion to the term of that precedent (a above ttated) fpm which it h4 befor a little varied. ' - v - " : ; Mr. Livermore, of New - Hampshirtj, atked, for information, merely, whether the focUou which the warrant wat to ba issued, should uot first be lubttantiated by oath. Th ttatement came, he knew, from a moat respectable tourc ; but wat not an oath necessary to justify snoh a warrant? ' The Speaker said. Certainly not. Th quettion on Mr. Fonyth't motion wat then taken, decided ui the affirmative and ordered to be entered unanimously. , The warrant wa forth with issued. " ( Anion? the variety of mode in .which the kidnapping of free negroes, for the purpose of selling them In the southern Mates a staves tor life, it carried on in thi part 'of the world, we have been furnished by one of our respec table correspondents wiUi the following ae count of an attempt recently made in this city. On the last Sabbath,, notice was given to a gentleman from whom we have received the account, by a tree biacc woman living in una city, that her daughter, a girl of about 15 year of age, bad gone early in the morning to assist another black woman, belonging to Charleston. South Carolina, in putting her bag. gage on board of a vessel which waa to sad that day tor that port uiat not naving return. eL the became alarmed, and upon enquiry. the found that the girl had accompained the woman on board, and sue supposed tne vessel had Sailed. It wa however discovered, that the vessel still lay in the stream i upon which notice wa given to the owner, whodetired measures murht be taken for her rescue. En quiry was soon made on board for tbe girl, and an answer returned that there was no girl there, except the daughter of the Charleston black woman,' The woman and the girl being found and questioned, the woman declared . t . . i - i i j i . i .l - tnai tne gin was ncr uauguicr, suv wc gin claimed the woman to be her mother. Upon being informed, however, that they must go ashore, the girl to her mother, and the woman to answer for her attempt at kidnapping, they both acknowledged the facts the woman say. ing that she only intended to take the girl to Charleston, to pass the winter, meaning to bring her back in the spring, and that. she therefore considered ner as ner daughter. The girl was returned to her mother, and the woman lodged in bnd wall. It it but justice to the gentleman who owned the vessel, and to the captain, to state, that the moment they were informed of the trantaction, they rendered every assistance in their power, to prevent tbe meditated miccniel from taking el - feet Daily 4d.
