If it has pow er to control aud restrain, it mu4. have the name power to protect, ait aud I icilitate; and if it denies the jurisdiction in the one mode of action, it must renounce it iu the other. :. That in cousejueace of the peculiar dau- gers of the uavigatiou of the Lake, arising from the want of Harbors for ahe.ter. and of the Western Kivers from u.iga aud other ob struction, there are no parts of the I'nited tale more emphatically demanding the prompt md coutinued care of tlie Government to di minish those danger and to protect the proper ty and lii exposed to mem; and that anyone who can regard provisions for those purpose a sectional, local and not national, must be want ing iu information as to the extent of the com merce carried on upon those lakes and riv.rs. and of the amount of teeming population occu pied or interested in that navigation. 10. That having regard to relative popula tion or to the exteut of commerce, the appro priation heretofore made for the interior rivers and lakes and the streams connecting them with the t k-eau, have not been in a just and fair pro portion to those niade for the benefit of the At lantic coast; and that the time has arrived when this injustice should be corrected iu tlie only mode Iu which it can be done, by the uni te.!, determined and persevering efforts of those s hose rights have been overlooked. 11. That independent of this right to protec tion of "Commerce among the States," the right of "Common Drfnce" guaranteed b the Constitution, tntitle those citizen inhabi ting the country bordering upon the interior Inkee aud rivers, to such safe aud convenient harbors as may afford shelter to a avy w henever it shall be rendered necessary by hostilities with our neighbors; and that the con struction of such harbors ranuot safely be de layed to the time which w ill demand their im mediate use. 1'i. That the argument most commonly urged against appropriations to protect "commerce among theStates," and lo defend the inhabitants ot the frontier that they invite sectional com binations, to insure success to many unworthy objects is founded on a practical ditrut of the Republican principle of our Government, aud of the capacity of the ieople to select competent aud honest representatives. That i! may he urged with equal force against legisla tion upon any other subject, iuvolving various and extensive interests. That a just apprecia tion of the rights aud interests of all our fellow citizens, in every quarter of the I'niou, disclaiming selfish a ad local purposes, will lead intelligent representatives to such a distribu tion of the means in the Treasury, upon a sys tem of liio-lcratiou and ultimate equality, as will in time meet the most urgent wants of all, aud prevent t jose jealousies and uspicion w hich threaten the moet serious dangers to our confederacy. 13. That we are utterly incapable of perceiv ing the d life re nee between a harbor for shelter aud a harbor for commerce, aud suppose that a mole or pier which will afford safe anchorage and protection t a vessel against a storm, must uecessarily improve such harbor, and adapt it tn commercial purpose. 1 1. That the revenue derived from imposts en foreign goods being the roinmon property of the people and the public lands being the com mon heritage of all our citizens, so long as these resources continue, the imposition of any spe cial burden oil aay portion of the people, to ob tain the mesas f accomplishing equally w ithin tlie duty and the competency of the General Government, would Ik- unjust aud oppressive. 1 j. That we disavow all and every attempt to connect the caase of internal trade and ot "Commerce among the States" with tlie for tunes of any inditical parly, but that we seek to place that cause upon such Immutable princi ple of truth, justice an 1 constitutional duty, a shall command the respect of all parties, and the deference of all candidate for public ft- vr. The following Resolution was adopted: RrmalrfJ Th.it far thn nuroose of making known to Congress the principle and view oi this Convention, aud the important matter con Dxtel with the subject of it deliberations, a committee of two from each State and Territory be appointed by the President to transmit thu proceedings of t!iis Convention to the President of the I'uited State, and both Houses of Con gress, aud to communicate to them such infor mation as the committee may he able to collect, to guide intelligent and just legislation. And that such committee be requested to collect ac curate information of the nature aud extent of the trade and commerce on our Lakes and navi gable Kivers, ani the. amount of the losses of live, property aad vessel by storms, for the want of adequate harbors, or in consequence of obstructions in tlie navigable Kivers oi the I'm ted States. And that such sub-committees as may be deemed necessary to carry out the ol- jects of this Resolution. The author of these, Joh C. Srncta. ex plained the iewt of the committee, in a compact, well considered argument. He sustained the resolutions by authority, A:c. &c. Mr. Gard ner of Xew York followed, and lengthened a little. He wa for a rail-road to the Pacific ! Mr. Field, David Dudley, of New York, like a sensible man that he is, gave in his adhesion to the resolutions, with a rrrjr slight modifica tion. Mr. Carts, of Cincinnati, wished to hear Mr. Field ; but Mr. Bigham, of Pittsburgh, wanted to get home ; and Mr. O'Haaa, of Toledo, (Ohio,) protested against every thing, and hit sway at every body. He must be of the O'Flim school ! Faith said the founder of it. there is no laming to be got by agreeing with every body, and no fun to be had without contradic tiaa. So nrotest. bovs !

Judge TiioMaa, of Illinois, now proposed that the resolutions be acted npou seriatim ; which suggestion was carried ; and they were adopted naanlnioaaly, aicept tha 5th which waa slightly opposed, and tha 14th which waa amended aa It reads.

Ct.xTo.N, 31st May, 1 47. tlrsn i MFX : Your circular inviting me to attend "a North Western Marhor ami Kiter Convention" to lie assembled at Chicago on tiie lirst .Monday ol July next, was duly rin-eivrd forwardi-il bv Mr. W'liitnev of your Coiiimil t.-e. My attention had Imcii previously railed to the same subject by the invitation of a friend, at your city, to attend tbe Conveniion, aud gener ously teiutering me quarters m uK Umile durimr Is sitting. I was forced, from the state of pri vate business, to inform hint that 1 could not make the journey, ut the time named, uud the period which has elapsed since I declined his in- itation, has only teudsl to conlirni the conclu sion pronounced to liim. ere it possible for me to attend the proposed Convention, with out an unreasonable sacrifice, I should most gladly do so, as my location give me a strong feeling iu reference to the prosperity and safely of the commerce 4lf the lakes. The subject of he iinprovemetit of the lake Harbor is one. w hich my service inl'ongre has rendered some w hut familiar to iue lu a 1-gislativs asjiet-t, while my personal travel upon th-' tw o low er Lakes tins n.ide t,je uecessity for these improvements man-f.-st to in y senses. 1 am nuare that question of Constitutional power have been raised iu ref- rence lo iipproprintious of inoncv l Congress, for tbe improvement (.f the Like II irlnirs, and 1 am well convince.! that hunest men huve siu- erelv entertained strong scruples upon this point, but all my observation mid eM-rieuce lave ia.luced I lie to b-lirVi-tiles.' scruples, whore he individual admits the power to improve the Atlantic Harbors, arise Irotn the want of an ac quaintance with the Lakes and the ro.nmerre upon them, and au itmliility lo believe the facts it relation to tint commerce, when truly stated. It i not easy for one. familiar with th Lakw tnd Ihe Like cotnui'-rce, to realize the degree of ncredulitv, as to the mngnituue and importance of both, vvliich is found in the luiu-ls of honest au.i well informed men, residing iu r-iuote por tions ot ine t u ion sun riaving no personal ac quaintance w it!i either, while I do not recollect au instance of a memtn-r of Congress, w ho had ravelle.l tlie Itkes niiii observed tlie commerce upon them, within the Inst ten years, renuiriiiij any further evidence or argument, to induce him lii admit the Constitutional power, and the propriety, of appropriations for the Lake Hir- ors, as milch as for those of the Atlantic roast. I have long lieen of the opinion therefore, that to impress the initios of the jieople rf all portions ofthel'uiou with a realising seiim; oftheficts as they are, in relation to these inland seas, ami their already vast and rapidly increasing com merce, would lie nil that is required to secure such appropriations lis tlie state of the ationl I reastirv will, from tune to lime, permit, lor the improvement of the like llarliors. 1 mean the iiinmveiiirnt of such Harbors as the Imdv of the Lake commerce rnjitires for its convenience and sfrty, as coiitra-ditiuuished from llie Humer us apjilications for these iui'iroveiueiits, wliii-h the various cnict in local interest upon t!i shores of the likes iiiiv prompt, and I make. his distinction, because my ow n oliservation has ' sliow u that applications for Harbor improve ments, at the pi.hlicexpeiiseafe made and passed, w ithin distauces of a very few- miles, ami nt lo- atioiis, where, from the natural position of the Lake n mi coast, a good Harbor at either point would secure to the Commerce of the Iake all the convenience and safety of duplicate im provements. Much of the diltieulty of obtain- ng appropriations, grow out of these connict n; applications, and the sternness with which all are pressed as n'essary to the Lake Coin- ueree, impairs, the confidence of strangers to the loral claims and interests, in the importance if all. It is the duty of those who nrje those im provements, for I lie great objects for which alone they should lie made at the etiiieust' of the na- iott. v ii : the convenience and ssfety of the laike roiiiuif.'-e, lu is iioncst Willi Congress, anu to urge appropriations only at points w here these ronsider.it ions demand them. The River improve ments constitute a much more dillicitlt subject, and the ronncrtion of them with the Lake Har bors, ha ofteu to my knowledge, fatally preju diced the former. There are application for im provement of Kivers, about which, a a matter of principle and Constitutional power, I have no more doubt than about the Harbors upon the Lakes, or the Atlantic toast, and there are those, whirh, iu my judgement, come neither within the principle nor the constitutional pow- r ; but to draw a line between the two classes of cases, I ranuot. I hare witnessed numerous attempts to do this, but none of them have ap peared to my mind to be very sound, or very practical. The facts and circumstances are so very variant, between the various application, that I doubt whether any general rule can be laid down, which will he found just and practi cal ; and I think the course most likely to se cure a satisfactory result, with the least danger of a violation of principle, would no lor t. ongresa to art separately aud independently upon each application. There has appeared to me to be one broad distinction between these cases, which has not always lieen regarded, but which I think always should be. It is between the applica tion to protest and secure the safMV of commerce upon Rivers, where it eit ami Is regularly carried ou in defiance of the obstructions sought to be removed, aud iu the face of the dangers they place in its way, and those applications which ask for improvement of Rivers, that commerce may lie extended upon them where it ' . . i. is not. 1 ne one Class appear to me io asa v. on er res to reff-ulate and protect commerce upou Kiveri where commerce in fact exists, and the other, to create it upon Rivers where it does not exists. This distinction, if carefully observed. might aid in terminating some applications of both classes, but it is not a sufficient Uiviling line for pro. iical legislation, if it is for the set tleincnt of the principle upon which all uch ap plications should rest. 1 ue toe term . om nterce" in this definition, as I do in this letter. in its Constitutional sense and scope. 1 must ask your pardon, (.entlemen, for troa. blintr vou with so Ions' and hasty acommunlra tion. i n reply to vour note. It is not made for any public list', but to express to you very iin perfectly some of my view upon the interesting subjects you bring to iny notice, which I shall not have the nleasure ol communicating in par- sou, aud to satisfy you tliat I am not indifferent to your request. lie plaed to accept my thanks for your po lite invitation, and to believe.

We find various matters) of general interest, aud we proceed to nolire theia. Dr. UowaiG, in the House of Commons, en quired whether Oreat liritain had offered her friendly interference to aettle existing ditlieullies between the United State and Mexico. Via count Paijicksto replied, it had been done twice, unofficially, by Sir Robert Peel; more formally by the preaent ministry. Both offer had lieen declined by the United States and Mexico. Ketrrnts were ex pressed : but as no other steps could be taken, the mailer was droptsed. Steamers are becoming common. The Of ret lreMf(oe, the first American )ceau Mail Steamer, had reached Southampton; she made her passage, so far, in fourteeu days. The pro peller Sarah Saudi waa to leave Liverpool on the Ilth ult., and the Gmadalquittr on the 20th. A line of steam-ahipa is to be established lielween Europe and America. Active negotiations are going on between the Ooveromeut and the He- roult and Lehandel Company, for the trans-At lantic Steamers. While main lines of Steamers are maintained first, from Bordeaux to New Orleans, stopping at Havana, with a branch al Mexico; second, from Marseille to the French Caribee Islands, with branches to Porto Rico, Hat ti and Santiago, and the Continent ; third, from Havre to Kio Janeiro the haven of Nan test would have no line of Steamers, but it would obtain an auxiliary line to Lisbon and Madeira, corresponding with Ihe Havre line to Kio Janei ro. The monthly line of Mail Steamers is to touch at New Orleans. The arrangements are all made. The Kreat Britain is still in her bed. Mr. Iirttnell's breakwater has protected her exceed ingly well throughout the winter, and' now she is to be forthw ith taken in hand by Mr. Br.Mn ner, the eminent engineer, w ho is charged with the duty of releasing her from her long impris onment. Iu the first place, her entire hull is lo be lifted full six feet out of tli bed in w hich she at present reclines, in order that her bottom may be thoroughly examined, and any injuries there in' repaired. Tin contrivance for raising her stupendous bulk are at once simple and ingen ious, and, so fir as we can judge, certain to prove effectual. When it has been ascertained that her bottom is ound, she will be cradled on a sufficient number of air-tight boxes, buoved up by which she will, on the first favorable op portunity, be lloated into deep water, and towed aw ay to some place of security. The election for the House of Commons take place soon. A very large number of the old members retire. A large infusion of new men w ill go into the new house: men who know the social wants of the F.nglish people. The old war party cries are faintly heard. The lines of party are well nigh rubbed out. Public men are looked for who wilt consecrate tiieiiu-.U &u the sacred altnr of human brotherhood, and es chew partisan strif- and host de division. ' We must have," says an English statesman, " rep resentative thoroughly imbued with practical knowledge of the wants and aspirations of our social elate. " Two matter, little in themselves, yet impor tant as showing the better tendonry" of things iu Great Britiiu, may be especially noticed. The first is, the Carton monument. William Cuxton W'ns the enrlis-t English Printer. Xo monument had been erected to hi memory. The time had route, w hen he should be thus honored; and, at a meeting, over which Lord MoarrrH presided, it was resolved that one should be erected in Westminster. Kiugs, war riors, and the great, sleep there. In it front, just where tin last ray of the western sun ligut and linger, the monument to William Caxton will be planted! Thua ever let those associat.-d with the real advancement of the human race be honored! Tlie second is a testimonial to Mrs. CxTitta ivr Wilkinson, of Liverpool, the founder of puMic Wash-houses, and, at present, matron of tin Liverpool Bath and Wash-houses. Her aim wus to relieve the poor, and give them employ ment. She succeeded. And now, gentry, and i people, rise up to do her honor! The te,tuno- P ' n'1' w as presented amid a large crowd. Airs. Wilkiuson waa led to arhair, haudsome ly decorated with dowers, by Mr. Lawrence, who pleasantly observed that though it wa June, he would crown her Queen of May. The day being line, tables with refreshment were laid out upon the lawn iu front of the house, after which the testimonial was present ed, consisting of a silver tea-pot, rrc-m-jug, spoons, and china tea service, and tray, inlaid wik pearl. On the tea-pot and cream-jug there is the following inscription: Presented by The Queen, The Queen Dowager, And the Ladies of Liverpool. To Catherine Wilkinson. 1M6. Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself." What an exalted praise, and how loudly does it proclaim improvement in Great JJritaa. When the really noble, however poor, are thus remeinbetvd. Happy the people who treasure up aa above all price, the gtotl! Cheap postage is helping on this tendency. No letter is more than a penny postage! Every body writes; home feeling are kept up; friend ship's ties strengthened; all the social virtue kept bright lAerefcs. Why, the number of let ter that pass through the Post Office annually, for London and ita environs alone, i 3,0tK),(si0. They average four inchest in length and three inches wide. If this immense number of let ters were laid down in a horizontal position, lengthways, they would reach to the extent oi 5,734 mile; if laid so as to form square feet, the whole would cover 142 acres of land. They average in weight one-third of au ounce. The whole would weigh K7 tone. The postage of these, at one penny each, amount to i.3l'2,jK'. See what cheap postage does! Let us have it. Two cent is enough for any letter to pay The ureal event, however, ia th passage of the ten hour bill, by Parliament, and iu ratifi cation bv her Majety. It i an acknowleJg- ment that laborers mut not be over-worke-J that they have a right to reat. Heretofore, they have had no time for aoclal pleasure or for im provement, and, eonaayjnently, they were worn down early, and their families lett destitute An hour to God, and an hour for recreation, were denied thorn. But a change ha been or dered; the nobility of the land, and its law giv er have said, that this oppression cannot be any longer; and very soon we -shall find them marching on, jiving to labor wider opportu nities, and to laboring men a higher rank In aociety. Thia act of Parliament will give it a name hereafter. IaxxAJiD. There is one gloomy tone of sor row In Ireland over O'CoxxtLt'a death, i he i.i.k ...m him aa their chief.
