SENSIBLE!
We find in the Louisiana Courier'
the proceedings of a Democratic meet
ing in Marshall county, Mississippi,
one resolution of which presents an ad
mirable summary of political truth. It
is as follows:
"Resolved, That we believe the
great Democratic party of this country
is fully competent to correct whatever
mischiefs may lequirc correction, with
in its own organization. No new par-
ty is needed lor any sucn purpose.

defective, we believe the Democratic
paity, as now organized, will correct
them, doing full justice to all parties
interested, both natives and foreigners;
and while we are in favor of every
man's doing what he may believe to
be right, and impute improper motives
to none, e would respectfully ask those
Uemocrats who are becoming distrust-
lul to their party, to ponder seriously
before they leap, by hastening to join
an organization to break down foicign
influence, as it ii termed. Is there not
danger that they will put in power a
lass of Jt cleral politician;, entertaining
rincitiles w itli which they have been
at war all their live;? There is not
the 6hadow of doubt but wlul hi 'h ta
riff, bank, internal improvement and no
extension ot territory politicians will
rule the secret order of Know Nothing--,
Americans, or whatever name they
give it; therefore to join it, to put out
one spark of fire, ttiere is danger ol
becoming enveloped in the flames ot
Federalism. All othet paities are an-
tagonistical to the Democratic party
and a party that has succeeded in
bringing forth a prosperity unparalleled
in the history ot nations, should not
be abandoned, lor light and transient
reasons."

The Boston Traveler says that during
the forenoon of the StU inst., when
shocks of earthquakes were felt in
Maine, New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia, telegraph lines in different sec
tions of the country "were more or less
disturbed by extraneous electric cur
rents, similar to those that vniformly
accompany manifestations of tlie Au
rora Borealisfabut the disturbance was
slight, compared with that which ac
companied the eruption of Manna Loa,
volcano one ot the Sandwich Is
lands, in February, 1852, at which
time every telegraph line throughout
the country, from Halifax to New Or-
leani.and Irom XVcw York to at. Louis

the President cf the UniteJ Slates, in
forming the House that he had vetoed

Mr. Orr proposed that the nwtssge be
read ind printed, ind considered on
Monday at one o'clock.
Mr. Baily suggested Tuesday next.
Mr. Haven suggested, without in
tending any disrespect for the President,
that the reading of the message be die
pensed with.
The proposition called forth boister
ous cries oi "no! read! read!" The con
fusion increased, ind a point of order
was raised lhat the bill pending must be
disposed of before the message could be
acted on. This was acquiesced in.
Another amendment was adopted,
making b n appropriation lor the Ocean
service this year, the bill for that pur
pose having failed last tession. The bill
then passed 92 against 83.
The veto message was then read. The
President refers to bis duties under the
constitution, and discusses the principle
underlying the approval or disapproval
ofbilla; theu rsviews the history ol
claims; comments strongly on the fict
that never, from the beginning of the
present ceulury, has any administration
recognized these claims or deemed them
worthy of recommendation to Congress;
nor is ileven alleged uour, that new ev
idence has been brought to light, calcu
lated at all to fix lb liability of thir-
Government. He argues the whole que
lion of our treaty liabilities with Frar.ce
and declares onhesilalingly his convic
tion that the United Slates havealread)
in the most ample ind completes! man
ner, discharged their whole duty to such
citizen! as miybave been al any time
aggrieved by the acts oi the French Got
erumeol. For these reasons, the bill
ought not to meat the Executiie unc
tion. , -'
