No Southern member would dire to take iich a step and venture to show himself in the South agajn.

The keeper of this horrid den is called in that paper, the old lady!!" and the following sentence will serve as a specimen of the morality as well as the style in which these accounts are written: "Beauty and innocence talent and accomplish ment, such as are seldom seen commingled together, gave up its existence when tlie fatal axe penetrated the alabaster forehead of Ellen Jewett." For the credit of the other papers of that city, we ought to mention that the "Herald" is the paper which gives these dUgusting details. Robinson is in prison.

Gov Spaight has drawn down on 'himsrlf the lust indignation of the WrSteVn peopl for depriving the 12lh Congressional D'StrTct of a Representative for the remainder of this session. The Carolina Gazette, pub-fish; d in the District, and both the Salisbury papers, speak in language not to be misunder- L stood They tell the Governor, what no one can doubt, "that the utter hopelessness of electing Newland, is the true reason for the postponement, and "hat he has violated the spirit of his sqle'mn obligations to support the Constitution by L his decision The Watchman cites some prece- dt is which strongly exnioit me impropriety oi the Governor's course. . Two years ago, a special election was ordered in South Carolina to take place as late as the 3d of June. The memb-r e-lected took his seat in the House sometime before the session closed on the oO'h ot June On that occasion the vacancy occurred on the 1st day of rAjiril, and the Governor of South Carolina was much.censurel, by the Jarksnn party, tor not issuing the writ of election at once and fixing an earlier day than the' 3d of June The censure would have been just, but tor the tact which the (governor made known, that he did not receive the official -notice of the vacancy, on which alone he was at liberty to act, until about a month after t occurred. Still, when it did reach him, he im mediately ordered the election. Look at the conduct of our Governor, and contrast it with the hove. The vacancy here occurred on the 29th March. The official notice of it doubtless reach- ... :.U-.. r .1..... . fl If aim nl me-governor wmnn mur wji- - take the long session of the last Congress as he nrobable length of the preaent, there were almost three mouths of the session remaining, and nearly every important measure, it is well known, is finally disposed of within the last week or two f the session. It may be sain that tne present session Witl terminate earlier than that did. What right have we to suppose so Is it hot notorious' hat theeeijs more business betore it than was ever hefore"knownrTfce Governor had no reason to suppose, that because a resolution was before the Senate to adjourn on the 23d May, that therefore Congress would adjourn at that time. The same idea was held out in 1834. 1 ne UDserver oi jz- flril 29 of that year contains a letter from one of tnr mentbers- of Conirress, dated April -J4tn, in urMrh an adjournment was anticipated "early in ... . .. . ........ lone." and yet it did not take place until tne last Uy of June . Another case is cited bv the Watchman. When Gow Spaight was. elected to his present station lurinr the last session, thougone legislature ua not sit one month afterwards, an election was held, nd the new member took bis seat. In everr view of the matter, it ia clear that jus tice to Ihe State, and especially to the people of that District, who have. no representative to present their claims to Congress, or lo assert their rights and interests, demanded a speedy election to fill the vacancy. TEXAS.. The accounts from Texas are so contradictory and imperfect as scarcely to be worth republishing; but in One particular they appear to concur, that Santa Anna has carried all before him, so fir. The statement, copied into our last, that Col. Fannin had cut his way through the Mexican army, and joined Gen. Houston, is not confirmed; but it is now asserted that he had an engagement with a superior force, which continued severtl hours, and as some accounts say, every man was killed in battle but others, that he finally surrendered, with 3 or 400of his men, under an express pledge of protection, and that o the next morning, after being disarmed, they were dclibtrultly shot Only hree are said to have escaped. Much interest has been felt in the fate of this officer and his men, from the fact, that they were Georgians, having marched some months since from Macon, Mdh dgrville, and Columbus. Whether murdered or killed in battle, it seems. to be certain that Fannin and his whole corps of 500 men have per islu-d. The families of the Texians are flying from thr neighborhood of the monster Santa Anna, who v. said to spare neither age nor sex. but butchers in discriminate!)' all who lull into his Hands. Several vessels have arrived at Nc w Orleans filled w ith wo men and children. Gen. Houston was retreatinr, and the I exians had burned several of their towns, and destroyed the plantations, to prevent their giving aid to the enemy The following extract of a letter from Texas, gives some interesting particular of the tall ol San Antonia: Our force in tho Alamo at the tune of its being stormed, amounted to one hundred and eighty-sov- en, every soul ot whom was put to death extend. 1 ing mercy only to a femalo, tho wife of ono who nobly lost his lifts in tho engagement to tell the melancholy news. The Muxican fierce was six thousand, having bombarded the Alamo for two days without doing any execution, a tremendous effort waa made to take it by storm, which they succeedrd in doing alter a most s inguinary engagement, lasting near an hour. History, neither ancient nor modem, can give evidence of euch brave, ry and horoisin as whs evinced on the occasion. No ouarters were called for until every soul had perished savo seven, who on otsking quarters, and being told none could be give, again commenced the work of death, and the lust died as did the first, without yielding :m inch of ground th condition or discriminntion. We reeret rapid Halo ot ine public domain, and toe premium which it costs to convert such paper into the inn. diu'ii in which our remittances ure made, will not permit us to continue to do so. He pleased to let us hoar from you in reply, as' early as pr-ictic'ablo. In the mean time, we have directed the Re.' ceivers who deposite hnre, not to receive, after the' 29th instant, tho paper of any bmk of the Stnte, (other than the deposite banks,) unless liereafier instructed to that eftect by this institution. Very repect fully, J. UELA FIELD, Jr. Cashier. Mr. Ewing offered a resolution on this subject, calling op the Secretary of the Treasury to inform tho Sonate whether this arbitrary course oftho De posite uank was hi pursuance of instructions. He wanted to know, too, whether Ihe public money w is withdrawn from Ohio for the purpose of pla cing il in the pets in New Yofk and other large cities. He desired to know whether the Receivers of Public Moneys had boen instructed net to receive the notes oftho other specie paying Banks in Ohio, unless they would agree to pay them in drafts on the Northern cities. He said ruch drafts were worth from ono to two and a half per cent, ndvnncn, and this was the tax which the Deposite Bank levied upon its neighbors, un said that the other B-mks in Ohio wore old institutions, of cx cellent standing, whilst the pet was a new Bank, nd nearly halt its stock owned out ot .tho Mate. Such, however, is the power conferred upon this institution by the aid of the Treasury, that the other B tnks wern afraid lo como in collision with it, and in forwarding the abovo Circular to Mr Ewing, had requested him not to let it be knovn from wJiom he received it. The Banks, he said, would be obliged lo refuse the demand ot the De posits Bank, and their notes would then bo dis credited, though they arc always ready to pay specie for them.. lie wont on to show that the effect of this cxlraordinary requisition ofthe Bank would be, that the people who might want to pay for government land with other Bank notes, would tiHve to get thorn shaved, at the loss perhaps of 5 on the $11)0. And he predicted, what ha already -oine to pass, that there would be a shaving shop very near to the Receiver's office. The Gold Humbug. Mr. Benton has introduced a resolution declaring that "after in the ye ir 1836, nothing but gold and silver ought to be received in payment for the public Lands." This would be an effectual mode of slopping the sale o tho Lands House of Lords; it whs very dark, and he could, with difficulty, read it. v lie made any mistakes, and called to Lord Mel bourne, 'Melbourne, what word is this?' At ast, he said loud enough to be heard by the reporters, 'Melbourne, why the d 1 don t thev bnns in candles? At last one wax ta-per was brought in; the King then told the arliament that a he had not, h feared. been able to make himself intelligible, he must commence reading the speech de novo, which he did."

COMMERCIAL RECORD. The General Appropriation Bill has passed the House, and been twico rci.d in the Senate.

On that occasion, Mr. Wise noticed an attack on him in the Globe, by Whitney, by reading from the Bank report of 1832, showing ih.it Whitney had perjured himself, and that he had sworn allegiance to Great Britain during the last war, whilst in Canada Mr Wise asked if it did not justify the suspicion that something is rotten in the Treasury, when such a man as this was connected with it, I and was attempted to be screened by the people's x r . in i . m I airl.
