We publUh this morning, the first part of the speech of the Hon. Andrew Stew art, of Pen 11 fylvania, delivered a few days ago in the House of Representatives, and to-morrow we shal give the remainder. We claim of our readers a careful perusal of this speech; it is true it is somewhat lengthy but we. hope no one wil pass it over on that account. Of its contents we need not say more than this, Mr. S. al ways speaks by thebook. Tht facts, dates and figures he gives', are from the documents, and cannot .be denied, and in this brief speech, cut Khort by the rule, he gives facts in relation to Gen. Cass's receipts from the Treasury, which the people should understand. Tkoops Returning. Every boat from New .Orleans brings up troops on their way home.- -Souwr-of trie-OTüoVrennfvlrapia, and Kentuckv Volunteers have passed up In the last few days, but we believe none of the Indiana regimen's have yet returned. A great deal of sickness exist among them, and take them altogether they look pretty well used up, in numbers, ppmt and flesh. What a diiicrence there is in their going out and returning home! Then they were in health, and full of life and hope, now they are sick, broken down and dispir ited and careless of life. Ingoing out it re quired tiro large steamers to take one regiment returning one low water steamer furnishes ample accommodations for tico regiments! Many of the returning. regiments have never seen a battle field, yet it would require three or four of their companies to make one in numbers. The Tennessee regiment which was stationed at the mouth of the Rio Grande, which numbered upwards of eleven hundred men when it left that State returns with lit tle oex'Jhrec hundred, aud they so worn down and diseased as to be perfectly helpless, and many of them must remain a burthen upon their friends forever. The Indiana regiments we learn, have suffered greatly by sickness.

Some of the officers " would not vote, and of those uot voting, some who have always been warm Democrats, de clared emphatically they would not, under any circumstances, vole for Cass. Our informant an officer in the corps, states that among the men, the preponderance in favor of Taylor was greator, but no direct vote was taken.

House op Representatives, June 20. 1 The House being in Committee of the Whole on the bill making appropriations for the civil and diplomatic Service, and Mr. Fe a- therton having addressed the committee, (as already published.) Mr. Stewart, in rising, said he did nol propose to answer the remarks just made by the gentleman from Mississippi (Mr. Feath crtou) upon the subject of slavery a sub ject bn which he never had made, and per haps never would make a speech upon this floor. It was an evil, and an evil without a remedy, on that portion of the country where it existed; but it was an evil to which he was opposed to extending to any country or ter ritory now free. He thought the discussion of this question had the tendency to give rise to "geographical lines,1 which would divide the great parties of the countrv. and might in the end subvert our happy Union. lie regretted the drawing of'sucli lines; he thought them dangerous to the harmony and perhaps the integuiy of this great confedera cy. 'Ihey were divisions against which we were warned by that great and good man, the t alher of his country, in his farewell address to the people of the United States; whose voice hs could never hear with indifference, and to which he trusted the people of this country would never torn a deaf ear. There had, however, been introduced in to the present discussion another great ques tion the Presidential question; a question which he regarded at this tune as more 1 portant than any question of the kind which had ever been presented to the decision of ihe American people, involving momentuous consequences 10 the welfare of the country present and prospective. It involved this question, among others: Whether, under the Government as it was now administered, al power was to be concet.tTed in the hands 0 one man, or whether, under other auspices under the administration of another illustrious man, whose narr e was before the country we were to be brought back to the puror an better principles and policy of the lathers o the republic? It was a quostion whether al power the power of the purse and swoid the power of peace aud war, was to be exer cised by the President, whether with th: veto potter in his hand, he was to become suureine in this countrv. more arbitrary an despotic than any crowned head in Europe save Nicholas of Russia, and Congress an the people, were to dwindle into perfect iu significance; or whether, under the policy o that other great and good man, Gen. Taylor tho people and Confess were to be restore to their legitimate powers, just rights am proper influence, whether tho voice ol th people was to be heard, and they tube treat ed with respect, or whether wo were ta be controlled and governed by "oncmanP Was it to be tolerated that, when across the waters, in Europe, the old world was digg ed iu putting dowo the "one man power, we 1 were to be putting it up here, by ßiTin all pjwer to the Executive; and that whilst Eu tope was engaged in building up and cstab lishing republics, we were tobe employed in tearing down our neighboriug republics of the South? He trusted that we should take a different course, that under the auspices of that illustrious man whom the Whig party had presented to the country, wo should give an example to tho world not of war and conquest, but of peace of a people united, prosperous, peaceful, hnppy. That was the example we owed to the world, and tl at was the example which we w u'd boon set to the world under a different Administration from this. Dut coinir on as we nor i-re. un der the head ol the ''one man power' party, we must soon become a warlike people, go ing on conquering and to conquer. Not on ly Yucatan and Cuba, but Canada, too, and all other territory we should happen to fix our avaricious eyes upon, must be conquered and 'Swallowed" under the gtoat chiefiaiu whom the Progressive Democracy had select ed as their leader. Was this to be the policy which was to be sustained by the people? No, never! A different result .was approaching; the mis named Democracy had selected a leader, and so had the Whigs; the former a generaj that always surronders, the latter a general rthat never surrenders. Under such leaders could the result be doubted? No, it was certain; the contest had in fact been given up. The Uuion, the "orgin" of tho Admin istration, Father Ritchie himself, had given it un. What did the Union tell us? It headed a recent article with" Will the people endure the cheats?" Ho went on through half a column telling how they were cheated by the Whigs; and in other columns it wa cheated, cheated, cheated! Now, he would liko to know what man or party ever cried 4ichtated" tint was not beaten? "Cheat' meant "beat." In 1810, when the Whigs beat the Locos, they cried out "cheated ;n in 1813, when the Locos beat, that was the cry of the Whigs; aud so when tho Union cried "cheated" itadmiited they were beaten. "Cheated,' was the language of the loser, never of the winner. Mr. Hammond wish to propound a ques tion to the gentleman, but Mr. Stewart dtclincd 10 yield for want of time. He proceeded to read from one of ihe articles referred to 111 the Union, in which it was s iid that it was unfair for the Whigs to take Ta. lor. If they had taken Clay, Web ster, Scott, McLean, or any other known Whig, he would have been satisfied ; but they had selected Old Zick, a 'no party man, and they (the Democracy) could not keep their men iu the ranks; that they could not stand fire; that, like the Mexicans, they were not only retreating, but going over to Tay lor, in companies aud regiments; that they had not only Btrnburners in the North, but Barnburners in the South the Van Buren men and the Yancey men, the 'Alabama platform men,1' and the "New York platform men," North, South, East and West, their men wore 'boiling,1 bolting, boltiRg. Now, this Mr. Ritchie said was not fair; "it was a palpable cheai;"tho Whigs ought to have nominated Mr. Clay a man they had often defeated, and could, he supposed, defeat (representatives fairly expressed they talked gain.

War was a barba- mot proviso. He was once for protective tariff, but now opposed to all protection. The time was when Gen.

Now, the Baltimore. Convention declared that internal improvements were unconstitutional, and Gen. Cass, Amen; he agreed to every word in that nlatform. He was a man who had be?n on all sides of all questions; a man of no principle, no consistency, oui a iime-serviug, vacuum ting, weather-cock candidate, and that had se cured his nomination for the Presidency. But he (Mr. S.) thought his.party now 'felt very much like Father Ritchie did very much like tiiving it up.

Gen. Cass was once a great lover of the vol unteers. He was a volunteer himself, and was sometimes called the "old volunteer. But now it was on ths records of Congress, and there was no escape from it he put it to gentlemen on the other side of lha House that at this session of Congress, on December 20:h, n the Senate of the United Stales, Gen. Cass iitroduc-d a bill reducing the pay of tht vol- untecr8 for commutaticnfor thtir clothing one third. Mr. Wick interrupted; but Mr. Stewart deciintid to yield the floor, as bis hour was fast running away. He would show gentleman the bill; here it was, as it ap- ttfared on the records of the Senate: " the Senate of the Vailed States, Dec. 29,1 Ö17. 'Mr. Cass, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported the following bill, which was read and passed to a second reading. "A bill to provide clothing for volunteers in the service ot the united btates. Be it enacted, öc, That in lieu of the mon ey which, under existing laws, is allowed to voluuteers as a commutation for clothing, the President be and he is hereby authorized to cause the volunteers to be furnished with clo- thingin kind at the same rates, accordingly to grades, as is provided for the troops of the reg ular army." The bill provided "that inl'uu of the money" 'clolhins in kind be furnished to the volun teers at the same rates according to Erade as was provided for the regular army. Now, here wasa letter which he had received from 63 SO per month for clothing? Not. enough to purchase a hat or pair of .boots. Would Old Zack have done this? No air; he would have given, his hat and shoes both to an old ssldier father than take a single cent from him justly or unjustly. : . . " ' coxcixpEti TO-MOBRÖW.. DENTAL SURGERY. DR."

V "Sir: In reply to your inquiry of the 15ih instant I respectfully inform you that the av erage-alowance of clothing per month to 6ol diers of the regular army is about 62 35. I en close herewith a copy of "General Order No. 10." current series, iu which you will find spe cified the articles of clothing, and their value for each year of the term of enlistment. Respectfully, K. JONES, Adj. General. . "To the Hon. Anijbew Stewart, "House of Representatives, Washington.' This 62 35 was to all grades, dragoons, ar tillery-men.&c: but, by examination of lhe "general orders' referred to by the Adjutant General, he found that the whole amount o; clothing for infantry for five years was 611 55J, which by computation,, it would be seen gave 61 dl per month to the inlautry, and no more, thus it appeared mat ints out oiueu Cass reduced the allow ance to infantry volun tcers for clothing from 63 50, allowed by the act of 1816,61 'Jl, the amount allowed to the infantry of the regular army. The "Union, it was true, and Air. Cameron said the volun teers could have their option; but the language of the bill was express; nobody could mistak t: it was that this clothing in kind should be urnished "ii lieu of the money which under existing laws is allowed. rvow, could you find any option there? ltie bill provided mat clothing which cost 61 91 oet month, bhould be furnished in lieu of the 6 oU allowed un der yrevious laws. isir. mcclelland interposca, and was un- de i stood to speak of the construction put upon the; law by the Adjutant General; but what tie faul was not caught by the reporter. Mr. Stewart dec lined to vield, and said he cared not what consfr-tfitat the Adjutant Gen eral had been induced to give to the law bv Gen. Cass or any bodv else, there was the law as it was reported by Gen. Cass, aud as it pas sed. He knew it was said lhat Uen Cass had 3en the Adjutant General and got him or the resident to nulify by construction, or veto it export facto; he might have found it would not uo to strip tne voluntee rs oitneir cioining; lanztns and burning in effuv might have been unpleasant; and the Adjutant General might lavebeen induced to construe this law ol uen. Cass directly contrary to its provisions; still, here was the law as introduced bv Gen. Cass and cha bliouki be furnished "it tier or the amount previously allowed, which was 63 50. If it w as intended, w hy did not Gen. Cass say so in his bill; why not say lhat the volunteers should be allowed to draw 61 91, the amount of clothing allowed to regulars, which should be deducted out of the 63 50 to which they ..A . I ... were entitled, and not as the law declares "i ieir of lhe 63 50. The 61 91 was not to be in part, but in full. The law was too plain. Ingenuity could uot mvslify it. It was not V . i r . i . i I only outrageously uniust. iut it was cteariy unconstitutional and void What right had Gen. Cass to report and pass a law "impairing the obligation of contracts. The Government has contracted to pay the volunteer 63 per month and 62,50 for cloth ing; the volunteers had agreed to take it, and had gone to Mexico. What rieht then bad Geu. Cass to reduce their piy to one-third? If he could constitutionally take away one third, he could take away the whole. No; the law was unjust, it was unconstitutional and void, and, when opposed and spurned, and its author hung in elfigv, it was abandoned and - ... .i i-ii given up. uut weareaskrd how irns diu came to pass both houses without opposition? He answered, because no one knew the amount received by the regulars; this was fixed by an army ordVr, and, it being staled that it was a bill "for the benefit of the rolunteers," U pas sed at once without inquiry or opposition. Such is the brief history of this shameful and uni'ist law.

A common consequence of this affection is a kind of tenesmus, or bearingdown sensation, as it is tamüiarly called; there is also heat, tension and throbbing in the part, varying from a moderate de gree of these sensations to the not exerueiating suf tering; these are caused by the great How of blood to the parts.
