withstanding ttie Whigs have been well scared SAETY IN RAILROAD TRAVELLING One of the greatest dangers in Railroad travelling it well known arise from the difficulty of suddenly slopping the train of cars when in rapid motion in case of danger brine descried ahead It is accordingly provided by a law of Massachusetts that every passenger train shall be at tended by a certain number of brakemen But brakemen however great their number give but an imperfect security since when the signal is given their attention may be wandering so that they will not instantaneouslyapply their whole forcb to the brakes or what is still worse if they apprehend that the train cannot be stopped in time they are liable and very naturally so to consult their owni safety by jumping off and this they are apt to do in a panic even though the danger by so doing iis greater than iq remaining at their post Some certain method of stop ping tbe train in the shortest time possible Without giving a shock and in a way that might be always relied uion has been a great desideratum in this species of travelling! and transportation This has beep finally attained in Mr band and pulley brake which has been in occa sional use for four month past on the Bostop and Worces ter Railroad and its operations satisfactorily tested The superintendent of that road for the purpose of testing the this brake soon after it was introduced upon the road made an experiment with it on a freight train of sixteen car on a descent of 30 feet to tbe mile moving at the rate of 15 mile an hour and found that two set of brakesof this description applied to one double car so forcibly and easily checked the train in going a little more than iU length tllat tie was satisfied that two double cars soi provided (both of which would be under the commandr of one man) would have prevented any collision of ihisit train that could threaten it under any circ*mstances with an obstacle on the The brake can be instantly put in gear to stop the train the moment the danger is discov i ered or the signal is given 1 It ischeaply constructed and! can be applied at small expense to the cars: now in use arid as the power of one brake is estimated ti be equivalent to at least six brakemen the use of it besides the safety thereby secured is of material importance in point of eco4 namy since a single brakeman can thereby have a com plete command of the longest train of cars! i Having wit nessed the operation of this brake and also understanding itsicharacterfrom those who have tried it I considered it due both to the inventor and the Public to give this short account of it 1 The Members 'of Congress are coming in rapidly by every conveyance THe newly elect ed Representative Mtj Jameson is already here and all the members

When this resolution was readHn the Senate a Whig member got up and gravely proposed a substi tute in the words following to wit: Retained That a corporation is muchafer than auy in dividual agent however responsible he may be because it consist ot an association of individuals who have thrown together their ageregate wealth and are bound in their corporate character to tbe extent of their whole capital stock fdt the deposite and lhat it is the opinion of this General Assembly that the heaviest security which the wealthiest individuals can giv would not make the public deposit safe at the point ot' a large collection A mingled expression of wqiider andcon temptjfor'tlie audacity of the mpver Mr An derson rested upon the visages of the major ity and some of them even smiled at what they considered his folly in proposing that which ho must know would be instantly voted down but the smiles were quickly changed to blank looks of chagrin and confusion when i was whisper ed about that the resolution wasiverbatim a re petition of a certain declaration lonce made on the floor of Congress by no less a person age than his excellency Governor Polk now the mbst strenuous denouncer of all corpora tions as unsafe and irresponsible )Vhat was to be (lone The majority could not in conscience repudiate the doctrine so boldly1 advanced by their file leader but nei ther could they vote favor of the amend ment because if they Jid they voted against thiej sdb Treasury There was silence among thm for a time while the mbthievous Mr ANDtrisoN looked gravely oni enjoying his joke and their dilemma but al length a Mr Yoak um whispered lay it on the The hint wits caught at and the perplexing substitute was lain ou the table accordingly Iput jMr Anderson waj ready 'with another 1 Resolted That we have cunifidence ill the ability and capacity of the State banks to alf the duties of Cs caltageiiil for the Government 'fl'Iiis time the majority members Were suspi cious land by rubbing up their memories a lit tle some of them called to mind the origin of the one of General annu al messages Lay it onthe again mur mured Mr Yoakum himself scarcely able to miutain his gravity and laid on the table it was But Mr budget was not yet ex hausted He was on his legs in a moment with this resolution as a substitute hesolted Thai the Independent Treasury is disorgan izing arid revolutionary and subversive of the fundament al principles of our Government and of it entire practice fropi 1793 own to this day and that it is' a palpable a the sun that the effect of the scheme would be to bring tbe public Treasury much pearcr the actual custody and con the President and expose it to be plundered by a hupdred hands where one under the (ate system could reach itJ In such even' we shoeld feel tbalthe People had judt cause for alarm and ought! to give their most watch ful attention to such an effort to enlarge Executive power an4 putin its hand the mean of corruption Where does that come from queried one ofhhc majority to his neighbor and the vexa tious answer was from: the columns of the Globe the official paper ri the organ of the par ty at This time risibility could nojt be (restrained a snigg*r ran through the house and Sir Yoakum's it on the ta wps scarcely audible iio whimsical was the dilemma in which he and his friends were in volved: They succeeded however' in it on the and after that in passing their whole batch of resolutions i i It would seem moreover that some of them were disposed to make up for theft past annoy ances by giving a finishing touch to their tri umph It was not enough to endorse the sub Treasury but they must needs tack on another resolution endorsing the whole policy of the Administration past present and to come dhe sic tolo sic jubeo of the President being the essence of theft political creed as became faithful knights of! the collar So they completed their batch withi the following: 11 Resolved That this General Assembly doth heartily approve of the leading measure and policy of the adminii tration of Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren and our Senators jin Congress are hereby instructed and our Rep 0 rescnlalive requested to support in good faith the lead ing measures and policy a brought forward and advocated by the present President the United State and to use all fair and proper exertion to carry put and accomplish the But the instructors werej not yet quite out of thei woods Mr Reneau a Whig member had got: another shot ready for them and he let them have it just before the vote ws 'taken on the whole series in the following additional pream and resolution in the year 1826 at the suggestion of the vener able NatJMacona committee was appointed in the Senate ofttie United Stales totake into consideration the reduction of the patronage of the General Government of which committed Thomas Benton was chairman and Martin Van Buren and Hugh Whit and other distinguished friends oflGen Jackson were members: and whereas said committee made a report accompanied hysix bills which report and bills are recognised as the soundest principle of Jeffersonian Republicanism: 'EherefareResolved That our: Senators in Congress "be instructed and our Representative requested to uie all' fair and honorable means to have the principle of lhat re port carried out in the administration of the Government and lalso to secure the passage of said bills which are of the following title to wit: i 11 A bill to regulate the publication of the laws of the United States apd the public advertisem*nts 2J A bill to secure in office faithful collector and dis bursers oflhe public revenue and the displacement of de faulters i 31 A bill to regulate the appointment of postmaster 4 A bill to regulate the appointment of cadets A biU to regulate the appointment of midshipmen 6 A bill to prevent the military and naval officers from being dismissed at the pleasure of the President This was worse than either of other amendments practical although less percep tibly in the teeth of what the majority were do ing and' proposing at the moment It was a blow at Executive patronage and influence a shaft aimed at the very vitals of the party in power and feathered from the wings of the par ty's1 largest birds What to bq done wifh it 'f imove the previous Shouted one of the 'Menibers

on the part of the directrifs to abide by their resolutions' The following particular we cbodense from an extra of the Republican: Ori riday Borning President Smith wa waited on by a number of our most respectable and wealthy citizen wtio proposed to hjai tbefollowing: 10 '1 (1st That the collection paper falling due within the wit sixty day should be paid to the Bank or to any agent thereof in: the same description of funds heretofore re coned at the Bank i I i 2d That bq butinett paper discounted by the Bank tojihe present time should a far as possible be placed on tbe footing of accommodation paper the curtailment and diocotiut being paid in epecie or the note of specie paying iwnks i I These propositions were well received tiy Mr Smithad on Saturday morning MessrsChoteau and Collier waited on the President and they understood from him that the principal if riot the only ground of objection to lb proposition was the apprehension of loss which might etwee from the depreciation of tbe note of thei Illinois Bink if received in payment for the collection paper unualing to 278000 It being conceded thatlwas ttie uiy objection to the measure Mr Collier at once proposed Mr Smith to obviate it by offering to furnish twelve citien who would join in guarantying the Babk against eej loss which might happen in the process of collection fr lhe'depreciaUon df the notes of the State Bank of Iliiuois a This seemed to satisfy Mr The Board of Di Hctor was 'again assembled and in the meanj time Mr Collier obtained twelve of the wealthiest and most respect ril citizen to sign the indemnity Mr Collier and Mr Choteau were in attendance at the Boak io makeany explanation which might be deemed necessary Non8 such however were asked and after in hour or two delay President Smith appeared and in armed them that the Bank could do nothing in the matter Ths injunction of sccresy not having been removed no thing else of tbe proceedings can be known Mr Collier then informed Mr Smith that this was the last effort at a Compromise on the part of tbe people MICHIGAN ELECTION rom the Detroit Daily Advert i linstant we learn that returns of th' Michigan had be'en
