He brought a pocket full of extracts from the
Commercial along, to prove that It does not fa
vor Mr. Lincoln's1 Administration, and 1 that
hence its advocacy of Chase's claims should not
be heeded., His efforts bad no better effect
thau to persuade everybody he citne in contact
witb.that hie boring oapacities. to use the lan
guage of a prominent Illinois politician, are
eqnai to one hundred and fifty gimlets. t
The Commercial, in commenting editorally
upon tbe above, denies that it baa advocated tbe
claim of Mr, pmsi to a Cabinet appointment.
It would; prefer, as it says Mr. dual would
himself, that be should reuuiu tn the Senate.
Bat most strenuous efforts are being made by
some Ohto and New York politicians to get Mr.
Cum to take the Secretaryship of the Treas
ury. The New York anti-8ewardite have
been rccentlv on the wine from New York to
Columbns, and from Columbus to Springfield,
and from Springfield to Columbus again. They
want to'plt Chasx against Siwn in the Cab

trend, those who want office and think Mr
max can serve them better In tbe Cabinet
than in tbe Senate.
But the Commercial, In opposition , to' both
these, thinks it will never do to have Cas
and Siwaud both in the Cabinet.' It eaya there
are marked and strong antagonisms, in charac
ter and principle, between them, and the pres
ence of both in the Cabinet would be a weak
ness. It would presently become "a house di
videdgainst Itself." . The question as to which
would go out, would certainly be intensely in
teresting, but might not be veiy profitable to tbe
Republican party or tbe country: '
Senator Seward as a Member of the Committee
of Thirteen.
The New York Herald thinks that the jour
nal of the Senate Committee of Thirteen fur
nishes an explanatiou of " the true intent and
meaning" of .Mr. SiwaRI) late concilatory
and amiable speech. He was one oi that Com
mittee.' Tbe Chittenden Compromise was the
first thing tried by the Committee, and how
stands Mr.' Sxwaao upon the record ? Upoo the
proposition reestablishing the Missouri Compro
mise line", the Committee was thus divided: -

Crittenden, denying to Congress tbe power
Interfere with slavery Io those places over which
tbe Federal Government has exclusive jurisdic

tbe power to abolish slavery in the District
Columbia while slavery shall continue to exist
in Maryland and Virginia, or either of those
States; bis feurth proposition, declaring that
Congress shall have no power to binder
transportation of slaves by land or water from
one State to another, or to a Territory In which
slaves are permitted by law to be held; and
fifth proposition, for, Indemnity to owners
fugitive slave rescued by mobs, or smuggled
by underground railroad agent in tbe free States,
were all equally unacceptable to Mr. Seward,
gainst every one of these proposition In tbeir
order, and even against recommending a repeal
of the antWngltive slave law Personal Liberty

1. Ritold, That In the present crisis of onr
aountrv. the first and paramount object of every
patriotic oltizan should be, the preservation ofl
tbe Union, evot by eoerokM, but by mutual iacrl-1
ficaa. concession, oonoilliation and eompromiaov

dissolve its connection with the other States of
the Confederacy, or to absolve her citizens from"-
their allegiance to tbe federal uovtrnment and..
liiws, except by tbe right 01 revolution, as pro
claimed ' and sanctioned by the" Declaration of

selves unqualifiedly opposed to coercion in the
present state of the couutry, and until every "!" '
reasonable meant to bring about a oompromlsu, j
fair and honorable to every section of our oom- "
mon country shall have beeu exhausted, we
further declare that the Union muat and ahall "
be preserved, Dot by an appeal to arms, but by
an appeal to public sentiment, and the patriot.
ism ol tbe American people, and through tbe
Instrumentality of the Ballot Box ' ' ' '
4.- Retohed, Tbat having examined carefully
all the proportions which have been presented,"
eitnerin or out oi uongrese, with a view to
a compromise, and differing as we may upon
their respective merits, yet looking alone to
the preservation of the Union, and seeking to , .
recommend that which seems to be most aocep.
table, and likely to harmonise the conflicting
elements in tbe ditrerent sections thereof, we
unhesitatingly deolare ourselvee iu favor of
what is known as tne urutenaen proposition, .
and therefore urge upon The Democraoy every -where,
and tbe conservative men of every sta
tion of the Union, to unite upon tbis proposition, ,
and not cease laboring for tbe adoption of it, or
aome similar proposition, uutil by tbat means .
tbe flre brand ot slavery agitation it removed
from tbe Halls of Congress, sectional warfare
terminated, tbe troubled waters of the eonfeder
cy stilled, and the ship of State made to move
on smoothly and calmly, at In the better dayt of
tbe republic. . ,
6. Retolotd, Tbat every high aud honorable
contlderation of duty and love ot country, de- -mandt
of tbe present ConeresB. tbat it Immedi
ately submit to tbe people of tbe Union lor
tbeir adoption, in kcoordanoe with tbe provisions
of tbo Constitution, such amendmente to the
tame at embody tbe Crlitenden.or tome similar
proposition, believing at. we dq, tbafby this
meant aiooe, civil war can be avoided, and tne
Union saved and perpetuated. ' v ' 1 . i
I 6. Retolved, That if party and teotional politi
cians shall by obstinancy and pride of opinion, ,
prevent all necessary and proper efforts to oom-
Sromlte and adjnst our Impending national dif
cullies, by defeating a submission under the ,
Constitution, of all fair propositions for compro '
mise, to a vote of the people of tbe Union, and .
a disruption of our Government follows, the
people ot this country will hold such politicians
and their adherents responsible for the downfall
of our liberties, and if in consequence of their
Illiberal and unjust action, fratricidal war
should ensue, tbey will deserve as they will re-.
ceive, the unqualified condemnation of the civ
il lied world.
7. Retolved, That whilst we are Inflexibly op
posed to State secession, (except as a rtvalu-
tlonary right, and for causes justifying the
same as expressed in our third resolution,) we
oinnot sanction tbe introduction df .military
force. Yet if all efforts to compromise aud ad
just our present difficulties shall fall, (uo matt
ter tor wbat cause,) to prevent tbe horrors ol
civil war, whioh in our opinion would be likely '
to result In the overthrow of our Kepublioau in -ttitutlone,
and the establishment of a military
despotism, we are opposed to tbe use of force
to coerce a sovereign Stare into submission,!
and any call from any authority, for volunteer
re-inforcements for such purpose, would not be
considered an appeal to which we could re'
! pond. '
'8. Retolved, Tbat to the end that a more kind
ly feeling may be brought about between the
people of the different section! of tbe Union, we
recommend to the Federal Government, that it.
nte all fair and reasonable precaution, to pre-.
vent collision between any of the Departments
pf the Government and tbe people of any of
the States; to Senators and Repretentaves in
Congress to cease all crimination and recrimi
nation, to lay aside tbe partlzanaod put on Ibe
patriot; Io the people of the South to desist
from all further measure whicb look to seces
sion, In order that wben a proposition to amend
the Constitution Is submitted, calmer reason
may prevail, excitement and passion be allayed,
and the people enabled to act with a spirit be
coming tbe importance of the subject under
consideration. . , J I -
Tbe above resolutions weie thoroughly and
ably discussed, by Hon. G.W. Belden, Gen.
Samuel Labm, Seraphim Myers, Esq , and oth
era.whose eloquent and patriotic appeals seemed
toeleolrify the entire audience, creating inch
a unanimity of feeling and enthusiasm , as to
strike terror to the hearts of a few straggling
Republicans, who bad the courage to listen to
a rehearsal of their politioal misdeed! and the
sacrifices tbey as a party, have made for tern
porary power."' Tbe resolutions were: patted
with great unanimity and enthusiasm "J ' ' '

Result of the Labors the House Committee of
Thirty Three.
The House Committee of Thirty -three, ooo
from each State, from the secession of two oi
three members, proceeded to business in a bro
ken oondition. At the conclusion of their pro
traotcd and fruitless labors, they came into the
House in three or four detachments,' eaoh with
its report. That of Mr. Corwin, the Chairman,
considerably diluted, embodies the compromise
scheme of Mr. Crittenden. The report of Messrs
Tappan and Washburne declares in favor of tbe
Constitution as It it, and urges tbe enforcement
of the lawa. Mr. Charles Francis Adams, (son
of Jobn Qulncy Adams, and politioal represen
tative of bit fttber) waa disposed at first, to
make aome concession of principle to appease
the South; but the members from that section
in the committee having refuted their support
to a resolution declaring "a peaceable acquies
cence" in Mr. Lincoln's election, the duty of
every good citizen, Mr. Adama takes back his
proffered olive branch, and has no compromises
whatever tn propose.f-JV. IT, Her aid. a y r .
The Albany Argus tays "W repeat it dis
union must ' come, let It ' come without war.
Peaceable separation, is a great calamity but
dissolution, with the superadded horrort of In-'
ternal war, Inoludlng the ruin of business, the
destruction of property, oppressive debt, grind
ing taxation and sacrifice of millions ef lives, it
a scourge from which, let ui pray, tbat a mer
olful Providence may protect us."
