profiling for going '"to the election. II believed the C"ntitutioii. which II wer iwuin l mi port, made it imperative va '.Iiis Legislature tu elect Senator. Mr. Stipp said, lie had pledged Imnat If tu Ins constitu ent I vtiin fur a W'lii United Statea Senator, ami be in tended tu du so, if he bud the opportunity. He bad mad the eiprcssion, some time since, that be believed the Democrats would go into an election but, since tltal lime, lie limi Lern lei lit iluutjt. whether such would be the caite. Th Senate bad postponed the subject of the election until iMonduy m il ; and, in order tu treat that tody respectfully, l.e would move to postpone the further consideration t hern. I unt 1 half pa-1! two o'clock on Alon djy neit. The Senate, he understood, from out-door conversation, had postponed the suhject, with 1 view of gettin up iiisirurtions. If instruction could be got up, he would be in favor of teeing the will ot the majority obeyed. After Monday nest, he could not consent tu see the subject postponed any longer. Mr. Gregory was in lavor of adopting the resolution. He would bo williug tu see the election put off, if the Democrat would take the responsibility. Mr. Wright of Switzerland remarked, that he saw no thing in the mo?, merits in this House, that should be calculated lo frighten gentlemen out of their senses. The House had, but recently, adopted a resolution for going into the election, without a dissenting voice, and sent it to the Venule. Thi-t House, said he, cannot alter the action of the Senate, by all the resolutions we can farce upon them ; and he thought it altogether inconsistent with the public inter-t tu be eternally agitating this question and wasting the people's money in useless dis common. Mr. Tague remarked, that as the hour for dinner had arrived, and the ayes and noes had been called, he might be disposed to act out of temper in giving his vote. For the purpose of reflection, and in order to be in a better Lumor for the vote, he moved an adjournment; which carried ; and The House adjourned. AFTERXOOX SE'SION. Mr. Simonson modified his motion, in relation to the resolution providing for going into the election of U. S. Senator, so as to provide fur an indefinite postponement. A call of the House was moved, and in a short time all the members appeared but Mr. Sullivan of Jefferson, wilb the exception of those excused on account of sickness. Mr Whight moved to suspend the call ; which motion did not prevail. It was now determined, on all hands, that a song should be sung; but before the singing commenced, Mr Handy moved to suspend the cull, remarking, that sufficient time had already been wasted on this occasion. The question was put and decided in the negative, ayes 4i, noes 49 by nearly a party vote. After further delay Mr. Wright of Switzerland enquir ed, what had broke, that legislative business did not pro gress. Mr. Rieb (tcmpoarilly in the chair) answered, that a wheel was locked. Mr. Simonson then moved to suspend the call ; which motion prevailed ; when he again modified his motion so as to aayve to lay the resolution on the table; which mo tion did not pro ail. Arts Messrs.

Mr. Tingley moved the previous question ;wbicb being seconded, Mr. Robinson of Carroll raised a point of order, setting cut with the fiict, that the House had already adopted a resolution, in nearly the identical words, and sent it to the Senate, which had been laid upon the table; and, therefore, it was out of order to adopt or entertain a simi lar resolution, until a message hail been received from the Senate on the suljcct. He brought forward a deci sion of the Senate, two years since. on a similar resolution. Mr. Blakcmore contended, that the time set fur the election, by the resolution of the House had passed by, and consequently it was in order to adopt another resolu lion. Mr. Claypool caid, he moved to lay that thing called a point of Older, on the t.ible. The Speaker (.Mr. Rich hating left the chair) decided, that the point of order was one of those delicate questions which it is not the province of the Speaker to decide. The vote cn the adoption of thorcsolution will decide the question as to the propriety of entertaining the reso lution. The previous question, having been seconded, was put, to-wit: Shall the main question now be put? and decided in the affirmative ayes 52, noes 43.

An impudent Lttle pug-no-e puppy once walked in to the spacious den of the King tit' .beasts, and was not content with making itself qtute at l.om-j there, but on the master's return undertook to deny his right there, and to growl and snarl at the lordly majesty and might of the old Lion to the utmost of its little powers of ferccity. I ,The attempts that have been undertaken by some japers which have very recently honored the Demo cratic party with their kind faor and patronage, to read Col. Benton out of it, reminded us of nothing so Rbtlv as the aliove niree of zoological impertinence. ' J - l r. ;.! . i it i .1 1 . Lven to condescend to .defend Bntox against the ior me present year, s.iaii Deine oniy amount rcjuireu barks and bites of these littl3 things at his heels, of the said company to be so annually paid, for and dur- ITIadison and Indianapolis ISnil Iload, The bill to amend the law granting this road to the present company, which was reported from the Com mittee on Canals and Internal Improvement?, and passed to a second reading, on Thursday last, provides that the said company shall be authorised and empow ered, from time to time, to borrow money on the credit of said company, to aid them in constructing end re pairing said road, or carrying on the operations of said Company, at a rate of interest authorised by the laws of the State where such loan may be negotiated. The Company may, at any time, open books for the subscription and tranfer of stock, in any city ia the United States. The payment to the State of the por tion of the net receipts of the road as required by law Union, who have tried him too well ai:d too long to be r fleeted for or against him either by uur praise or their abufie. And highly as they all do appreciate him and his countless and measureless services to the Democratic cause, in seme of its battles, when some of the Sighting men of to-day were not out of their cradles, few yet do render to that extraordinary man the full justice which is his duo. Why, he is as dis interested a man in all his public aims and acts as Si las Wright and what more can be said ! We shall take the satisfaction of saying more about Benton some other day,copying mcanwi.ile the fallowing from the St. Louis jjilisiourian of ths G'Ji instant. From the Mistourian. DisiSTERiSTr.UNESs is Pcblic Lire. Perhaps the strongest example of disinterestedness in public lile that has been exhibited by any man ol the times in w hich we live, is exhibited in the case of Col. Benton. He has been twenty five years in the Senate of the United Slates, and during the w hole course of that time has never accepted ollice from any administration, till.tr for himself or any of his relations. During the administrations of Gen. Jackson and Mr. Van Uuran, it is well known that for eign missions to the first Courts in Lurope, and Cabinet appointments were not only offered to him, but pressed upon him, which ho constantly refused. It is also well known that he constantly refused to let his name be brought forward as a candidate for either the Presidency or Vice Presidency; and all have seen, in his Boonville speech, his public declaration, and the reasons for it, in favor of taking the Democratic candidate for the Presiden cy from one of the northern States. It ia also known that a Judgeship on the the Bench of the Supreme Court was at bis acceptance, and w hich he declined cs all oth er places; and it is also further known that other offices highly respectable were equally at his disposal, and al ways refused. Some of the enemies of Col. Benton have the impu dence to assert that lie will not live in Missouri. Ve say, on the contrary, that Col. It. will not live out of Mis souri ! that the honors and emoluments of a foreign mis sion cannot induce him to go to any Court in Europe ! nor the honors and emoluments of a Cabinet minister in duce lutn to live in Washington! nor any ollice which General Jackson or Mr. Vau Buren could give him in duce him to quit the Senatorial service of Missouri ! And now while willing to serve her again as Senator, he cuts himself off from ever being placed on the list of Presi dential candidate in lS4d, by proclaiming the principles which require the President lo be elected that year to be taken from the north. Kiinnnsp Biii li nrmointnicnt as Col. Bccton Im refused had been offered to those who say he won't live in Mis souri. Where would they be, it they had his chance of going abroad ? Literally scattered all over Europe and America! Not one of the herd would now be in Missou ri. Try them with embassies and foreign missions, and see how they would fly ! There would not be the mark rfa hoof cf a single one of them to be seen in thr state at this day, if they had had Col. Beulon's chance of going abroad. , Col. Benton has relations as w elt as other public men, but none ot them have received oilices or contracts at the ing the term of eight years from tnd after the pass age of the act; Provided, that, if the said company ehall fail to complete the said road to Edinburgh with in one year, nd thence to Indianapolis within three years from the first day of July next, then the portion of the said net receipts to be paid the State shall be ascertained and paid as if the act Lad not become a law. After the expiration of the said term of eight year?, the company and State to have equal interest accord ing to the length of road completed by each. No al teration to be made in the charter fur f.fieen years from the completion of the road to Indianapolis the State to have the privilege of purchasing the interest of the company for twenty years. All matters of difference between the State and Company to be settled by the Courts the act to take c fleet as soon as accepted by the company and filed in the ofEce cf the Secretary of State. The Company have confidence that with these amend ments, means can te obtained to complete the read to Indianapolis. Indeed, as will be perceived, they make said'completion to Indianapolis, in three years, a part of the consideration for said amendments. The ad vantages asked, for the term of eight years, from the State, which are the only amendments cf a pecuniary nature provided for, are insignificant, when contrast ed with the general advantages to the State of the completion of the road ; particularly in a revenue point of view, for all will acknowledge, that the aggregate valuation of the property of seme fifteen or twenty counties will be greatly enhanced by the completion of tire road. The present Company will have entirely exhausted their resources cn completing the road to Edinburgh, thirty miles from this city. If the bene fits of a completion to Indianapolis were confined to this city alone, we should feel a delicacy in pressing the claims of this work on the Legislature ; but some twenty counties along the line of the road and around Indianapolis are directly interested, and the whole State indirectly in the enhancement of the general revenue as befure stated. 0The attack made on Jlr. Shanks of Washington, oa Tuesday last for introducing a resolution to facili tate business, providing that the HouiC will at two o'clock on each day proceed to the orders cf the day, demands a passirg notice at cur hands. At the time of the introduction of the resolution, the orders of hands of the federal government. He has nephews, and ; the day had not been reached for several days, and a son ; but none ol llinin Have been quartered upon tue government, either in the Army or Navy, or in any oth er public employment. His sou is now receiving his ed ucation in this state, upon Gravois creek, in this county, and growing up iu the stale iu w hich ho is to live. These are facts w hich silence calumny, and prove that Col. Benton is one of the most disinterested public men which the times have produced; and that instead or re fusing to live in Missouri, he cannut he induced bit all the honors and emoluments cj emLiissie and Cubintt rjt pointments nor by the attractions oj European Courts norbij all the attractions oj H ash tagt on Lily to Ute any uhere else but in .Missouri. about one hundred and fifty bills were on the files. The Senate had adjourned one or two days at an early hour for the want of business. Under these circum stances Mr. Shanks introduced his resolution, which laid over one day, according to the rules of the House. Doctors will difl'er. ' The courteous, polite, gentlemanly and c-iristi-m Whig Editor of the BrookviUe American, in describ ing the manner iu which the Governor of Indiana de livered his message to the Legislature at the begin ning of the present cession, says : "He aroee to deliver the message, in the most care less, disgusting composure, his mouth dUtorted with an ungainly large quanttiy of tobacco obstructing his utterance disfiguring his face insulting to de cent men ar.d disgraceful to a civilized people.' At j every breath he was compelled to stop and roll the monstrous, nauseating lump of filth in his mouth the saliva running from the corners of his mouth, like the overboiling of a pot of tobacco stems, when pre paring the juice to kill upon calves. Eijrhty- rtwo times, during the delivery cf the message, was fie compelled to stopand d.scharge the filth and saliva from his mouth. The scene would have been a dis grace to the back room of a doggery." The word used by the editor, in the above extract, and for which we have e ulstitutcd four stars, we have left out, for fear that some might think it & Loctfoco forgery of our ow n ; Whig editors, you know, never, use navfghty words. Besides, a man who would in sert such a description in a family" newspaper, must have more politeness, gentlemanly carriage, aud reli gious profession, than we can pretend to, to back him in such a licence. By the by, the Mr. C. F. Clarkson, w ho wrote that editorial, cannot of course, be the Mr. C. F. Clarkson, who, while he was formerly the editor of that paper, not only brought a suit of defamation ngainst a person, and had judgment cgainst him, but was also sued himself for defamation and had judgment against him, again, for above l ,000 damages ! We say it cannot be the eame Mr. Clarkson, because this gen tleman, as you perceive, never slanders people and is ve ry scrupulous in his language. The benighted locofocos may be thankful that they now have a chance of hear ing what "decency" is. Eut we cannot now bestow more of our time on Mr. Clarkson, we must proceed to the Whig editor of the Tcoplc's Tress, published in Crawfordsville. He also undertakes to describe the Governor's personal ap pearance in the following manner : "The stale cant of the arrant demagogue as usual! An attempt to embitter tho prejudices of the poor against the rich: and that too by an tlxecuUve whose orbit(?) is probably redolent with the odor of rich per fumes ; whase "ambrosial curls" glisten with the Etudied art of the barber, and whose refined olfacto ries would scent the garlic breath of the "rabble" as faros any other mouera "democrat living !" This last gentleman can never get it out of his "or bit" that there are tvo classes of men in this land of equality, one of which he calls the "rabble," and he is in a perfect shiver, for fear they have "frrjudices" against the rich. Set your mind at rest friend, they have no prejudices, they only want to keep from being robL-cd. Eut while from Mr. Clarkson's description, one would suppose the Governor himself is, in his appear ancc, one of those he calls "rabble," the last gentle man represents him as a supcrfiue dandy. This, al though a vide, must be an honest difference of opinion, for of course Whig Editors have all the politeness, all the learning and all the decency. They have no hatred, no prejudices not a lit That is all for those they call the "rabble." Gentlemen when you get together and agree in your opinion of the Governor, it will be time enough fur his friends to be called upon to answer the charge. SUPKE3IK COIUT OF 1XDIAXA.

The Providence papers state that Gen. Fessenden, of Portland, is in that city trying to get Gov. Dorr released from prison on a writ of error and habeas corpus. Gen. Fcssenden, says the Bangor Democrat, has re turned to Maine, and reports that he applied to Judge Story in the first place to ascertain what 6teps were requisite to carry Gov. Dorr's case into the U. S. Court by writ of error, and was informed that, an application must be made by the "prisoner" to which his signa ture was necessarr. To obtain this Mr. Fcssendcn proceeded to Trovidence, and requested admittance to the prison where Mr. Dorr is confined. His whig op pressors took Mr. Fessendcn's rcqucst'into censidera tion, and after mature deliberation, decided not to grant it, afSrming that Gov. Dorr was civilly dead ! He is not permitted to consult with legal advisers, is forcibly prevented from making an appeal to the highest tri bunal of the land, is shut up within the walls of a pri son, and treated like a felon, not being permitted to even see his personal friends. There is much injus tice and oppression in this "happy land," and much foul wrong and tyranny where the Whigs hold the reins of power. Ehode island is "whig all over," and Thomas W. Dorr is held in w orse than Fiussian bondage for asserting a fundamental principle of American Liberty. 0 The conductors of the Journal permit one of its anonymous writers of eilitorials, to speak sneering ly of us as the "mere second hand paragraphists of the Sentinel." We would just observe, that, whether Just before Mr. Shanks' resolution came up, a resolu-1 snccr bc applicable or not, we have certainly been (t7" We publish the fullowing good old song cf Jef ferson and Liberty, says the New Haven Columbian Register, as particularly appropriate at tins time, when the country has just emerged from a contest as important in its results as was that of l'fCO, in the triumph of Jefferson.

S. Senator on the ÜUth inst. Yet in the face of all this, Mr. Hazel rigg, the Whig Representative of a Democratic county, ro'se in his place and charged upon the reso lution of Mr. Shanks a design to defeat the wislies of the Whig majority, in adapting resolutious relative able to keep the old eel pot of the Journal in very un easy commotion ever since we began to stir it up ; and its own party has felt the necessity of some im provement on its part, if -e may judge by the numer ous changes which hav Deen made in its editors within two or three years past. As ire look at things, those changes arc no bad compliment to us, and out If to the election of a Senator.

Shame, shame, on such gross misrepresentation of the Democracy of our sister county. Even Gen. Stapp was constrained to eay that the resolution was in strict accordance with the rules of Legislation adopted years since in Indiana, to facilitate business. Wc have come to a pretty pass indeed when every thing must be tortured into a desire to cheat the Whigs out of their Senator. Their guilty hearts, in view of their designs to cheat the free eons of Indiana out of a Democratic Senator, so justly their due. leads them to 6uspect oven those, who, like Ca-sar's wife, are above suspicion, as being engaged in like dishonorable conduct. Gov. Dorr. We believe the case of Gov.. Don- now stands thus : Judge Story decides that a writ of error cannot be rrranted except upon petition signed by Gov. Dorr, and that his counsel are not authorized to do it in his behalf. Dorr's counsel have applied to the authorities of Algenne Khode lsland tor admit tancc to him to procure his signature. The applica tion has been refused . on the pretended ground that Dorr is civilly dead, and therefore cannot do an act to bo recognized in the civil courts of the land.

New Hampshire Valriot. ' TIic Deaf ami Dumb. On Thursday evening, wc attended the exhibition of the pupils of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum (no thanks to Mr. Tingley, by tho way, who endeavored to ex clude every body but such greenhorns as himself) and we were much gratified at the proficiency mani fested by such as actively participated in it. Taking into consideration the fact that most of the pupils have devoted less than a year to their studies, their attainments do great credit to themselves and to Mr. Willard, the worthy Principal of the institution. The exhibition may have appeared rather tedious, we are aware, to those who witnessed the more j lcasing or amusing exhibition of the Blind, recently given; but when it is remembered that the Deaf and Dumb have to overcome tiie obstacles of a deprivation of two of the f:vc senses, instead of but one, as in the case of the Elind, the interest to the reflecting is greatly enhanc ed. The performances consisted of various examples, euch as spelling words by tho manual alphabet, from the black-board, on which they were written, and giv ing evidence by signs that the pupil understood the application of the words used ; sentences communi cated by the teacher to the pupil by signs, and written out by the latter ; reading sentences from books and manuscript by signs, each word being explained by an assistant as the pupil progressed, &c, &c.

A Curious Fact. The Report of the Superintendents of the Indiana State Frison shows that there are now 103 convicts in confinement. Of these, nineteen are natives of Ken tucky. The balance are principally from other States, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, giving together 49. Kentucky, however, furnishes the largest number of any State. Eut look! Notwithstanding the hue and cry of the Whigs about the "rascally for eignere," while a good Clay Whig State givc3 us 19 of her scoundrels to support, the Kingdoms of France, Germany, England, Ireland, Scotland and Toland fur nish but ten! The ''Native Whigs" had better look round a Lttle, or they will find themselves with their brethren. if it has any in fact, should be the last to suffer it to be made ; for it is known to every intelligent person lere, as well as to themselves, that most of its own original matter of any merit has been prepared by other ands than those of its ostensible conductors while, on the other hand, it is very seldom that an original article has appeared in our paper as editorial which was not prepared and written entirely by our selves. We can safely say. that during and including the whole existence of the State Sentinel, not ten columns, put it all together, has appeared as origina editorial matter, in our columns, which was not pre pared exclusively by ourselves ; and further, that when ever any article prepared by another, has so appeared it has been done either at our suggestion, or has had our full approbation before it appeared. Can the Jour nal say as much as this? Nut in truth. Let it cease then to sneer at us, which it only can do to the greater discredit than it at present enjoys. So far cs the pub lic is concerned, the authorship of an article is a mat ter of comparative indilierencc.

COXUKESS. -- The Senate, on the 18th, passed a resolution at the in-' stance of Mr. Denton, instructing the Committee on Fur-: eign Relations to inquire whether any proiions are ne-cet-sary, in providing for the annexation of Tesav, to pro- " tect the United States from speculating operations in Texas lands or scrip, and whether any persona employed by the government are connected with such speculaltoos ;' and atso empowering the committee to send for person and papers, to answer in connection wiih this and other matters embraced in the resolution, or any others that may be necessary to promote, in the language of the re solution, "the safe, spet dy. peaceable, and honorable an nexation of Tfin to the United Slates." A resolution was also pissed, at the instance of Mr. Kites, callinr up on the Treasury Department to report as to the manage ment of the public funds. Mr. N. made tome remarks. showing the necessity of the call, and the importance of Congress legislating upon the subject, to lessen the dis cretion of the executive over the public funds. As it was, the whole revenues of the country were left to the control of the secretary a state of things brought about bv the legislation of the lug parly, who, in ISM, and subsequently, uttered such loud complaints against any executive discretion over the public depoeites. They should, he maintained, be subjected to the control of law, and not left solely to the discretion or the secretary of the Treasury. In the House, the first business taken tip was the bill to provide for the remission of the duty on railroad iron in certain cases; when Mr. tosteroi l enuryivania naa tne Moor from yesterdny, addressed the Ilou?o in opposition to it. Mr. I'ayne of Alabama then addressed the House on the subject of the tariff of 1642, and in favor of a revenue tariff; after which the bill was laid on the labia Globe. Emancipating a slave ix defiance of tiie owx- ee. Robert T. Lucas, the slave of Edward Fitzge raid, purser on board the U. S. frigate United States, was taken from the master on writ of habeas corpus, while the bhix was lyinjr at uoston. itie case was tried before the supreme court, chief justice Shaw pre siding. The slave had been received and entered as a landsman by written consent of secretary Upshur, deceased. There were two points raised. First, the claim of the commander of the frigate to the services of the slave : second, whether his bavin? been brousbt involuntarily within the limits of Massachusettes without the master's consent, who was about return ing to Virginia, the court could interfere to set him ree: " "Judge fchaw aeciilea mat although L.ucas was awfully entered and employed as a landsman on board the fnVate, the right of the commander to his services as a slave could not extend beyond the tento rial limit"? of slavery, and were at an end whenever the services to be performed took him out of these lim its. In relation to the second point, that the mas ter having voluntarily rlacrd his slave in a situa tion in which he would be liable to be taken within the limits of a free state, he could not compel him to re turn arcm to a slave state without his consent. Lu cas was accordingly discharged from custody, and be ing of full age, was left to return to Virginia or re main as he might elect. This decision greatly cn larged all the previous decisions in similar cases, and may be regarded as limiting the claim of the master strictly to tne case oi a luguive. The Law ix Relation to Mobs. Chief Justice Gibson, of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, in his charge .to the Jury in 'Philadelphia, in the case of Donahoe against the county, declared that the firing upon a mob was perfectly justifiable, when that mob was assailing a man's house. He said, in reference to that particular case, " If the assailants had been shot down, it would have been a case of justifiable homicide," and added, 44 Any attempt to commit arson justifies homicide in defence, especially in the night time. A man has a right to keep whatever arms he pleases in his house, and to introduce men to use them. And he can take them when he pleases, whether he apprehends danger or not. This is a freeman's priv ilege. Any man who cannot arrest another in the perpetration of a felony, has a right to take his life, as n , rfi t t a measure oi necessity. . ine mei jusuce. was particularly severe in bis . animadversions upon mobs, and observed that if it were treason to oppose a mob," as he had heard it said latterly, "he had lived quite long enough, and did not care to prolong his life another day."

Methought at eventide I paused, Oue cold November day, Wheie diy and grim an 44ah-pole" stood; Like gh st beside the way When on mine ear a wail arose, And slowly o'er mine eye, Wi h solemn tread a lengthened train, Iu fuucia) guise swept by. First with a face whose depth of gloom Ambition's blight had cast, The ".Mill-boy cf the slashes" moved Tbe chiefist mourner past ; And then to soothe his ibing grief, Willi yrr pathetic tear, Wi'.h solemn air, so meek and good. Walked Frchnghuysen near. With "bracding-iion" in each hand, From bis far travels come, Unsolaced in his deep despair, Milked -Itooilack," daik aud gluing And sadly leaning on his arm.

Then "General Edwards and his son," That "estimable" pair, Marched 'midt a troop of "juveniles,' And dandies with long hair ; While dolorous upon tbe breeze, All whcezingly and wide, Like his old windy belluws, the Pougbkeepsie blacksmith" sighed. And then that "coach expressly built," And decked with silk and gold, The gi eat "embodiment to bear, Wiih sullen n.olion rullid; And as along the dusky way Its daikening couise it kept. Beside it, wiih bis Clay "Tribune," Poor Greeley walked aud wept.

A great deal of opposition was manifested against printing $w0 worth of the Governor's Message in German, a living language; but when it comes to the cant or fash dog-latin of the law, the Whig, as well as too many of the Democratic lawyers, see no necessity for adhering to the English language. Oh no ! that done, and more than half of the pettifogging tribe would starve. Right, Mr. Garrett, let us have the laws in English, or at least some living language.

Editors: I desire to state to ihe Legislature, through the medium of your paper, that since the publ lication of my report, we have been advised by the Ordinance Office, by letter cf the 10th inst., that the quota of irms that will be due this State fur the next yeür, will be "about 430 muskets." Dy reference to the report, it will be seen that the rjuota fur 18-14, was 390 muskets. My object is to state the fact, that for want of a correct return of the strength of the militia of the State, we shall sustain in the single year of 1845 a loss of more than six thousand noLLAr.s. D. REYNOLDS, Adj. Gen. Ind, Militia. Law of Libel.- The Massachusetts Courts seem disposed to make a new and more reasonable con struction of the law of libel. The editor of the Low ell Vox Populi was recently sued for a libel, and the i - j . i j it i . 1 jury gave a veroict ior uie piamun oi one cent, oam- ages, and one fourth of a cent for cost. In the case the plaintiff sued defendant, and claimed $2,000 for damage to his "good name and fame," by the publi cation of a certain article. Defendant claimed the right to put in testimony showing the general reputa lion and character of the plaintiff in the community contending that if a man's character was notori ously bad, he would sustain less damage in strictures thereupon, than if his character was fair and good, and that, therefore, should the libel be proved, defend ant should receive a verdict corresponding to testimo ny of character. This was the ground taken by de fendant, and it has been fully sustained by the Court. So that, hereafter, it will be a well established prin ciple of law in the Courts of Massachusetts, that in actions for libel, the defendant may put in the gencr al reputation of the plaintiff. Texas axd Mexico. The Texas Vindicator, scmi- oflicial organ of the Government, in reference to the present crisis, remarks : " There are three alternatives now presented to Texas, one of which she will shortly have to choose and in future to pursue. The first is annexation to the United States. The second is an adjustment of our difficulties with Mexico by the effective mediation of a friendly power, based upon a pledge to maintain our national independence and individuality, and upon the formation of commercial treaties extending recip rocal advantages to the parties. I lie third and last, is the one presented in the despatch of the 0lh of June, 1MJ, addressed from the btate Del'rtment through our Minister abroad to foreign frjer' tj0v ernments, announcing to them. atifpcaceora satis factory Armistice w-s not conciuded with Mexico within areaso-able period, " Texas would assume a new attitud" anj that relying upon her own strength ani Vcsourccs, she would cross the Rio Grande, and raising the standard of conquest, offer to the chivalry and the enterprise which might come to join her stan dard, that portion of the enemy's country lying north of the Sierra Madre Mountains, and extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean. Annexation may fail Mediation may fail, as they have both already done. Nothing in that event will be left us but War. Tho only question which can then arise will be " shall it be defensive or offensive in its character 1" This will be the sole issue before the country." . fcy-Rcubcri M.

Governor Edwards of Missouri, deliv ered his Inaugural Address, on the 20th ult. His Excellency sets down 800,000 as the amount paid annually by the people of Missouri to the General Government. Through the effect of the Tariff, the expense of collecting it,at $800,000 more ; the amount paid forborne fabrics, over imported manufactures, at $S00,G00 more ; the loss sustained in prices by a glutted market, at $800,000 more. Thus he argues against the power wielded by the United Siates in employing a protective system of taxation. The Governor is opposed to the indiscriminate use of incorporation powers, and recommends the intro duction of individual responsibility clause in the laws. lie contends also that the power of regulating the currency is no where prohibited to the States, and that, consequently, it is constitutionally theirs. He recommends a limitation in the issue of bank notes, so as to prohibit the emission of any note under ten dollars. lie recommends the adoption of a plan for prepar ing and qualifying teachers for the Common Schools, of whom but few regularly qualified are to be found. The disposition and more equal distribution of the Common School Fund, he says, should occupy some what the attention of the Legislature, so that the poor as well as the rich may bc benefitted by it, and the Primary Schoc-13 be as well supplied with instruct ors as the higher ones. . Irish Whigs. The following paragraph, from the Lowell Courier of Tuesday (12th inst.,) shows clearly, not only that the Whig warmth about forigncrs is all theatrical, but that they love and laud even Catholic Irishmen daily, whenever they prove recreant lo Dem ocratic principles : The Courier says: What can be thought of the demagogue Loco leaders in this city, who brought McGee, the editor of the Pilot, to Lowell, on Satur day night, for the purpose of haranging the Irishmen of Lowell over to the Loco side. Thank fortune, his. efforts and their efforts have been in vain. The Irish Whigs of Lowell are not to be caugLi by fools or demagogues. They acted nobly. At the Whig meet ing in tiie Reading Room last evening, three cheers were given for the Whig Irishmen of Lowell. How does this Harney over Whig Irishmen contrast with the bitterness cf a portion of the Whig press , who are abusing Irishmen, and the Alolitionists, for defeating their pet, Henry Clay, and aiding to elect, as they say, James K. Tolk. Native Americanism. The Boston Atlas, in speak ing of the Wards that have done well, says : " So, too, has Ward six : thanks to our colored brethren in that Ward, who contended most manfully for the v big cause, and voted almost to a man, the whig ticket," Here we have a specimen of whig cons''"" Native Americanism : Th-' ,i Ar- .ks tor the sable Afncan ; curscs for. i0 white European, 03-The New Orleans Tropic, heretofore a whig paper, has raised the "American Republican" flag.
