Vonrfoy, Uarrh 1 1 .In the Sbxatb Mr. Sew
ard mado (rest speech on tht question of the
slay. It wu emphatically On speech of the na
tion, bold, manly and vigor. W shall give
wxtrsct next week.
lb the Hotjsb Mr. Stanton of Tennessee and
, toiler of Massachusott made epeochee ;
the former tor, the latter against Slavery. Mr.
fowler Is an Orthodox Doctor of Divinity, rs
ther ambitiously inoliaed, whom the Whig put
forward a a wool-pigeon to catch the vote of
MaaMchusctta Piety for Oen. Taylor. His
apcecb, we confess, though in tome place a Ut
ile doughy, is much better than our anticipa
tion. He said I
The extension of Slavery would be a wrong to
the friend of humanity, and w cannot and
will aot do it, come what may. The trainer of
the Constitution, from tho North and the South,
acted on the principle that Slavery should not
be extended beyond the State where it then ex
isted, and that in no long timo it would come to
an end. This, he endeavored to show, had beou
carried out by tho North, which ho rid itself of
Slavery, and been disregarded by tho South.
The work has been going on for twenty years
to acquire Taxes, Now Mexico and California,
to increase the area of Sluvcry and this has
aroused the peoplo of tho Free Stntc, who have
but one pulse, from Maine to Oregon, and that
pulse was for liberty and to allow Slavery to
go thither, would bo an outrage on justice and
humanity, lie would make an ctfbrt to apply
the Wilmot proviso to every acre which we now
or may possess. Ho would apply it to Green
land, Nova Zomblo, Cuba, Yucatan, around tho
Arctic and Anturclic around every part ol tho
earth's surlace, provided it belonged to tho Uni
ted State. Ho wo determined to do this, not
to wound any man' feeling or pride, but be
cause it was right. If the proviso bo not ap
plied to New Mexico and Californii, they will
be Slavo States. Sink or iwim, live or die, let
who will abandon the proviso, he would adhere
to it lit all places and at all times, and under all
circumstance. In no case would he participate
to extend Slavery into territory now free ; no,
never. He condemned Slavery in strong terms,
and said it was absolutely and totally opposed
to the precepts of the Son of Uod. Hebrew, Ro
man and Grecian Slavery was liberty iUclf com
pared to Slavery in thi country.
March 12. In the Sbnatk, Mr. Footc' reso
lution to refer the matter in controversy be
tween the North and South (including the ad
mission of California) to a select committee of
thirteen 4 from each lection and one chosen
by the 12 was taken up. Clay and Cass wero
in favor of the proposition, Halo and other op
posed. The question was not decided.
In the Hoiis Slavery was discussed, aa usual,
but no approach wa mad toward voting on the
admission of California.
March 13. In the Sbsatb Mr. Seward, by
calling the yea and nay, got sovrrol petition
praying for the exclusion of ilavery from the
territories referred to a Committee. Butlor of

such wss his opinion, be ought never to nave
come to the Senate. t'o man ought to eonw hen

Tho President' California message was next
Mr. Douglas addressed the Scnnte. In com
menting upon the cause which had produced
the present dilficultic upon tho Slavery ques
tion, he said they resulted from tho doublo deal
ing of the Whig party who represented General
Taylor at the North as in fovor of tho Wilmot
Proviso, and at tho South as the friend of non
intervention. The Senator from New York,
(Mr. Seward,) among others, had pledged Uen.
Tavlor not to veto tho Proviso.
Mr. Seward denied that he hod pledged Ocn.
Taylor to anything ho had told the people in
his State that he believed Uen. Taylor would
net veto the Proviso if introduced into a bill by
Mr. Douglas said it amounted to the same
thing, and asked Mr. Seward if Oen. Taylor
could have rocoived the vote of New York if tho
people there had not agreed with him in rela
tion to tho probable action of Uen. Taylor, if
Mr. Seward replied in tho negative.
Mr. Douglas, in rosuming, said tho result was
that tho peoplo were cheated. Tho Legislature
of New York, wa curried in conscquoiu-o of tho
eheat; and Mr. Howard has been elected to the
Senate of tho United States by that Legislature
a a fruit of the cheat. Ho proceeded with somo
remark upon th Proviso, and said that the
truth was, the names of tilings had been chan
ged whilo themselves remained the same, tor
tho purpose of relieving the Whig party from
the odium of the Proviso, which rightfully at
tached to them.

March 14 In the Sematb Mr. Feward pre-
sontcd tho petition of citizen of New York,
asking tho rght of trial by Jury to alleged fu
gitive from lalior.
Mr. Pratt objected to tho petitions, and
hoped they would not be received. They
related to a subject upon which, abovo all oth
ers, tho public mind wa now most excited.
Every ono know that the granting of tho right
of trial by Jury was equivalent to denying the
master tho .o -session of his slave, if once bo
yond the limits of the Slavo States. Ho asked
tho Yeas and Nay on the reception.
Mr. llulo expressed his astonishment at tho
remarks mado by Mr. Pratt. If he had been
rightly informed, there was not a Slave Stntc in
tho Union in which an individual claimed n a
Slave, and disputing uch claim, had not right
or legal trial, anil he Dciicvea a mot oy ury,
to ascertain whether he wo a Slave or not. If,
then, thi right wn accorded to Slave in Slave
States, why should it be ucmcu to freemen in
Free States? Under tho bill now pending in
the Senate, any individual desiring a victim,
miirht Durchoso an affidavit, and, upon this ex
narie assumntion. toke awav tho free citizen
without law or ceremony, to n fnto compared
with which the crave itscll would be prelerable,
After somo debsto Mr. Pratt moved to lay tho
question of reception on the table, which wa
rejected, yea 14, nay 37.
The question recurring on receiving tho peti
tion, Mr. Underwood replied to Mr. Hale, ask
ing whero he proposed that tho claimed fugi
tive shall be tried, whether in the State from
which he fled, or that in which he was arrested?
He wished the North to consider this question.
Tho petition was then received.
Tho California mcssago was next taken up.
Mr. Douglu concluded hi speech, and declared
himself in favor of the admission of California
independent of all other questions. Mr. Footo'i
motion for a Select Committee was taken up,
and Mr. Cost concluded his speech mainly in
reply to Mr. Calhoun. Tho consideration of

We havo not been ablo yet to givo this work
a critical perusal, but we know enough of tho
author's views and of his modo of presenting
them to enable as to say with entire confidence
that it deserves the attention of all inquiring
minds, and especially of thoso who, deeply sen
sible of the fogs and mists of the popular theol
ogy, are just emerging into tho clear light of tho
Sim of Righteousness. That it is entirely free
from error, or that tho truths it contains are in
all cases presented in an unobjectionable shape,
is more than we should dare affirm of this or of
any other human production ; but we ontortain
no doubt that, in spito of all tho faults which a
rigid criticism may detect, it will bo extensively
useful, by tho light it sheds on the most impor
tant problems of Human Life, and by stimula
ting thousands to investigate, ss they have nev
er done before, the true sourco of morid obliga
tion, and the rclution of mankind to God and
to each other.
