That difficulty drf not strike me tot when the amendment was suggested, but I auialiwl that it ia one whieb is filjitll fatal tn the proposition. There must be sowe offieets appointed by ihia government to Mta theh bouiidaues, 1 they could be understood by all the miners. and SO that each one way know that be is own land. I do not know. then, upo? the whole, ttot any system can be better than the one devised and in eerted ui the bill. It will a?.werths purp^. The machinery is not complicated, and it will enable the in dividuals to define their nghta in the tors* place, and then, at any time afterwards, to protect them. Bat this thing lends *o Una i We are now in the way of determin ing the question whether we are ever to realise anything from the sales of these lands or not. That, t think, wiR be settled in this bill. A? short as the time i* in which we have to arrange it, either we settle the natation whether we will ever have anything lor the* lauds, or, if we do, whether we must eell them to indi?id??l pur chasers, and thus get them out of the hands of the labor ers into the hands of large propeftyjie^era. or lease them to occupants. Now, if we sell ihem, they go into the bauds of property - holders j because the poor man Mils his placer, and the rich buys it, until, by and-by, all the lands will tie owned by a few. Thai will be the necessary consequence. I think there is but oae other mode resorted to; and that id, to lease the mines to the laborers, and let them hold tbein in that way. By this arrangement we will make something out of them. Either we must do this, or we must do as 1 have already stated?sell out the lauds, and make something out of " l'concur'in the opinion expressed by the senator from Michigan, tbat the United States ought not to accumulate a fund out ol auyihing of this sort. We have no busi ness to accumulate funds in this way.. But there is no possibility, so far as can see, of our doing it. We are in debt, deeply in debt, and we who are here shall none of us live to see the debt we now owe puid. It is a ques tion if even our children ever see it P*'"-. l?>e strong nrobiibiliiy is they will not. Now, we ought, as far as possible, to keep down the national debt of the country, and I do not think we ought to give away the valuable property out of which money can be made, and out of which it oujhl to be made, and levy a heavy buri-en upon the community to sustain the operations of the government. We must incur heavy expenses to regula ting these mines themselves, and in supi?orting tbe gov ernment of that country. That ia our chief resource-at least it may be such il it be properly applied i and i see no mode of aiH?lying it at all, unless something like the mode 1 have suggested, leasing the lands for a portion of the gold that would be deiived from them?leaving them in the hands of individual laborers?or else to sell the land and throw it into ibe handa of monopolist*. ? Mr. CASS, (interposing.)

I trust we shall many of us live to see that '"Mr EWING. Let the gentleman look at the appropri ation bill, and then at the revenue of the country, and 1 think he rousi be satisfied lhat we are making no progress in the payment of the public debt.

But we have not, in times past, been spending #50,000,000 annually, aa we are now. 1 ihink we ought to husband our resources, and endeavor to keep the debt down, so that we shall not have to borrow to nav the interest upon fhe money we liave already borrow ed? which ? know will be the ca*e by the way in which WeMr*n'ope we ehall have ?he question taken very soon.

We shall pay our tespecta to thia notable personage us soon as we can spate the space from more important mat ters. Our columns have been too much crowded for several days with the proceedings of Congress for us lo obtain u much room aa our expos* may probably re quire. How strangely ignorant is this opinionated sen ator of the position which he occupies in the eyes of the democratic party?("w*," as be professes to speak of them)?how "fallen never to rise again!" It is strange that he should talk of being a democrat! Look at the mischief he has inflicted on the party in the State to wboae favor he is so much indebted for the distinc tion lie has enjoyed. He has disorganized thai party in Missouri. He has, by his vagaries and follies, con tributed to throw three of the congressional dis tricts into the hands of the whigs. The only ser vice he has rendered the democracy of Missouri is, that by pulling down the temple itself, he has drawn tbe fragments upon his own head! As to the presiden tial election, (the word "again" looks to that event,) we state frankly that if we had done no more du ring the campaign to carry the democratic ticket than the senator from Missouri, we would blush even to speak of the presidential election at all. Is it not a modest and a graceful thing for this gentleman to speak of the democratic party, and the necessity of preserving it, who has done more to injure it than any politician living, and whote unslatesmanlike speech in 1844, struck off by thousands, and scattered throughout all the land, was employed by tbe whig orators upon the stump ax tbe text book of their speeches ? "O wad some Power the giftiegie us, To see oursels as others see us ! It wad frae monie a blunder free us An' looluh notion; What airs In dress an' gait wad lea'e us, And ev'n devotion!" The New York Globe thus touches up this nondescript politician: " Ma. Beuton.?This gentleman, having been rejected bv the people or his own State, is enrcraraged to appeal to the people of the United Siale., and has recently, as ap pears by his letter j>?st published, taken the Held lor the presidency. Haviug been repudiated by tbe democracy o Missouri, it is dtlBoult to ascertain upon what bu hopes ol SUCC JSS are founded. He has been acting during tho great er part of tbe present session of Congress in conjunction with Messrs. Hale, Seward, Cbase & Co , endeavoitng to defeat the settlement of tho slavery quostion. He is now strongly in favor of starting a new organ at Washington, having no hope, of securing for his support any ol tbe ex istina democratic presses. It U quite evideut that hi* de signs ere hostile to the welfare of the democratic party. Ho disorganised and broke it down In Missouri, end f. now evidently desirous of destroying IU union throughout tbe United Stales." (Corrsspondsncs of the Baltimore Patriot.] Maw Yoax, September 23. i The first arrest une'er the fngitlve slave bill recently I passed by Congress wa. made In this city to-day. It ap. p, ar. that a lady of Baltimore, Maryland, named Mary Brown, owned a number ol slaves, among whom was one named James Hamlet, wbo took it into bis bead to Uee to New York, two year, ago, since which time he has been living in this city. Mrs. Brown gave up all hopes of reclaiming him, but, as won as poslble after the passage of tbe act referred to, she instituted measures to secure him. She sent on proofs of ownership, end a warrant was issued for the arrest of the ?lave yesterday. Mr. Brown, the deputy marehal, took the matter in hand, aad look him into custody in Water He'was immediately conveyed before Mr. Gardner, the United Stales commissioner, aud bis identity proven by Mrs- Brown's son and .on In-law. An order wa. Immedi ately Issued f >r his return, and in all probability he is now on bis way to Baltimore. When Hamlet was arrested, he gave a signal to a num ber of oolored persons in the neighborhood, and, but for the presence of a number ot officer., be would have been taken from the deputy mar.hal by foroe. There Is very great excitement among our oolored populatiou on the sub ject, and several hundred are now around tbe Toombs, imagining that Hamlet 1. confined tbe-e. As soon as the decision a as rendered, be was locked up in the grand-jury room, and the negroes in the neighbor hood ol tbe ootumiaeionei'. office were put on a wrong Kent.
