The eulogistic remarks pronounced by Mr. Benton upon Judge Porter, in seconding the re solutions of respect offered by Mr. Barrow, on announcing the death of his late colleague in the Senate on Friday, were among the most touching and appropriate we ever had the melancholy plea sure to listen to in that Hall. He who can utter sentiments expressive of such deep sensibility, in language glowing with the warmth of private friendship and high esteem, has a heart suscepti ble to the finest impulses, and capable of harbor ing all those generous feelings, which, when per mitted to have full play, elevate and adorn human nature. We have entertained prejudices against Col. Benton, believing him to be cold, austere, selfish, and destitute of the finer feelingo of humanity ; various circumstances, however, have of late led us to believe we have formed a wrong estimate of his character. As a politician he is firmly at tached to his own principles, and inflexible in maintaining thein ; and yet fair and manly in his course towards his opponents, never seeking to gain his purpose by anything like unfair strategy, and scorning to take any undue and unmanly ad vantage. in his opposition he is open, franfc, bold, and above board; pursuing his object, however, ?' with an eye that never sleeps, and an energy that never tires," he heeds no ob stacles, listens to no remonstrance, fears no oppo sition, and sets at naught public opinion, content to attaiii his purpose, and, so he can accomplish that, caring, apparently, for nothing else. These qualities fit him to be, as he is, the lead er of his party, and render him at times the ter ror of the timid, the indomitable commander, and the acknowledged chief of that party, as he is its soul and embodiment. The following is Mr. Benton's beautiful, elo quent, and feeling eulogiutn upon Judge Porter, his early and cherished friend, though political opponent, to which we have alluded. ? The resolutions having been read, Mr. Bextos rose and said: i rise, Mr. President, to second the motion which has been made to render the last honors of this chamber to our deceased brother Senator whose death las been so feelingly announced' and in doing s< , I comply with an obligation of lriendship, ab well as conform to the usage of the Senate. 1 am the oldest personal friend which the illustrious deceased can have upon this floor, and amongst the oldest which he can have in the United States. It is now, sir, more than the period of a generation?more than the third of a century?since .he then emigrant Irish boy Alexander I'oRTErt.hnd myself met on the banks "?e Cumberland river, at Nashville, in the State of Tennessee, when commenced a friend ship which death only dissolved on his part We belonged to a circle of young lawyers, and stu dents at law, who had the world before thorn and nothing but (heir exertions to depend upon. First a clerk in his uncle's store, then a student at law and always a lover of books, the young Porter was one of that circle, and it was the custom of j all that belonged to it to spend their leisure hours m the delightful occupation of reading. His tory, poetry, elocution, biography, the ennobling speeches of the living and the dead, were our so cial recreation ; and the youngest member of the circle was one oi our favorite readers. He read well, because he comprehended clearly felt strongly, remarked beaut,fully upon striking pas sages, and gave a new charm to the whole with his rich, mellifluous Irish accent. It was then that ! became acquainted with Ireland and her children, read the ample story of her wrong* learnt the long list of her martyred patriots' names, sympathised in their fate, and imbibeu the feelings tor a noble and oppressed people which ^extinction of my own life can aline extin Time and events dispersed that circle. The young Porter, his law license signed, went to the Lower Mississippi; I to the Upper And years afterwards, we met on this floor,' Sena tors from different parts of that vast Louisiana which wag not even a part of the American Union at the time that he and I were born. We met here in the session of 1833, '34?high party times and on Opposite sides of the great party line ; but we met as we had parted years before. We' met as friends; and, though often our part to reply to each other in the ardent debate, yet never did we do it with other feelings than those with which we were wont to discuss our subjects of recrea tion on the banks of the Cumberland. I mention these circumstances, Mr. President, because, while they are honorable to the deceased, lr,Larl, 0]V,8!l,!ICat0,'y t0 m*Relf for appearing as the second to the motion which has bee.Vmade A personal friendship of almost forty years g.ves me a right to appear as a friend to the deceased on this occasion, and to perform the office which the rules and the usage of the Senate permit, and which no many other Senators would so cordially and so faithfully perform. In performing this office, I have, literally, but little else to do but to second the mniioo of the Senator from Louisiana, [Mr. Barrow.] The mover has done ample justice to his great sub ject. He also had the advantage of long ac quaintance and intimate personal friendship with the deceased. He also knew him on the banks of the Cumberland, though too young to belong to the circle of young lawyers and law students, of which, the junior member?the young Alex ander Porter?was the chief ornament and delight. Hut he knew him?long and intimate ly?and has given ev deuce of that knowledge in the just, the feeling, the cordial, and impres sive eulogium which lie has just delivered on the life aud characier of his deceased friend and colleague. He has presented to you the matured man, as developed in his ripe and meridian age: he has presented to you thefi' ished scholar, the eminent lawyer, the profound judge, the distin guished senator, the firm patriot, ihe consta?t friend, the honorable inan, the brilliant con verse^ the social, cheerful, witty companion. He has presented to you the ripe fruit, of which I saw the early blossom, and of which I felt the assurance, more than thirty years ago, that it would ri. en into the golden fruit which we have all beheld. Mr. President, this is no vain or empty cere monial in which the Senate is now engaged. Honors to the illustrious dead go beyond the dis charge of a debt of justice to them, and the ren dition of consolation to their friends: they be come lessons and examples for the living. The story of their bumble beginning, and noble con clusion, is au example to be followed, aud an incitement to be felt. And where shall we find an example more worthy of imitation, or more full of encouragement, than in the life and cha racter of Alexander Porter ??a lad of tender age?an orphan with a wiuowed mother and younger children?the father martyred in the cause of freedom?an exile before "lie was ten years old?an oceau to be crossed, and a strange land to be seen, and a wilderness of a thousand miles to be penetrated, before he could find a resting place for the sole of his foot: then edu cation to be acquired, support to be earned, and even citizenship to be gained, before he could make his own talents available to his support: conquering all these difficulties by his own exer tions, and the aid of an affectionate uncle?(I will name him, for the benefactor of youth de serves to be named, and named with honor in the highest places)?with no other aid but that of an uncle's kindness, Mr. Alexander Porter, sen, merchant of Nashville, also an emigrant from Ireland, and full of the generous qualities which belong to the children of that soil: this lad, an exile and orphan from the Old World, thus starting in the New World, with every thing to gain before it could be enjoyed, soon at tained every earthly object, either brilliant or substantial, for which we live and struggle in this life. Honors, fortune, friends; the highest professional and political distinction ; long a su preme judge in his adopted State: twice a Sen ator in the Congress of the United States wearing all his honors fresh and growing to the last moment of his life?and the announcement of his death followed by the ai\j<>urnnient of the two Houses of the American Congress! What a noble and crowning conclusion to a beginning so humble, and so apparently hopeless! Honors to such a life?the honors which we now pay to the memory of Senator Porter?are not mere offerings to the dead, or mere consolations to the feelings of surviving friends and relations : they go further, and become incentives and in ducements to the ingenuous youth of the present and succeeding generations,' encouraging their hopps, and firing their spirits with a generous emulation. Nor do the benefits of these honors stop with I individuals, nor even with masses, or generations I of men. They are not confined to persons, but I rise to institutions?to the noble republican in I stitutions under which such things can be ! Re publican government itself?that government which holds man together in the proud state of equality and liberty?this government is benefit ed by the exhibition of the examples such as we now celebrate, and by the rendition of the honors such as we now pay. Our deceased brother Sen ator has honored and benefited our free republican institutions by the manner in which he has ad vanced himself under them ; and we make man ifest that benefit by the honors which we pay him. He has given a practical illustration of the work ing of our free, and equal, and elective form of government; and our honrirs proclaim the nature of that working. What is done in this chamber is not done in a corner, but on a lofty eminence, seen of all people. Europe, as well as America,' will see how our form of government has worked in the person of an orphan, exiled boy, seeking refuge in the land which gives to virtue and talent all that they will ever ask?the free use of their own exertions for their own advancement. Our deceased brother was not an American citi ven by the accident of birth: he became so by the choice of his own will, and by the operation of our laws. The events of his life, and the bu siness of this day, show this title to citizenship to be as valid in our America as it was in the "reat republic of antiquity. I borrow the thought, not the language of Cicero, in his pleading for the poet Archias, when I place ihe citizen who be comes so by law and choice, on an equal footin" with the citizen who becomes so by chancc. And, in the instance now before us, we may say that our adopted citizen has repaid us for the liberality of our laws; that he has added to the stock of our national character by the contributions which he has brought to it in the purity of his private life ?the eminence of his public services?the ardor of his patriotism, and the elegant productions of his mind. And here let me say?and I say it with pride and satisfaction?our deceased brother Senator loved and admired his adopted countrv with a love and admiration increasing with his ago, and with his better knowledge of the countries of the Old World. A few years ago, and after he had obtained great honor and fortune in this country, he returned on a visit to his native land, and to the continent of Europe. It was an occasion of honest exultation for the orphan emigrant boy to return to the land of his fathers, rich in the goods ot this life, and clothed with the honors of the American Senate. But the visit was a melan choly one to him. His soul sickened at the state of his fellow man in the old world, (I had it from his own lips) and he returned from that visit with stronger feelings than ever in favor of his adopted country. New honor awaited him here?that of a second election to the American Senate. But of this he was not permitted to taste; and the proceedings of this day announce his second brief elevation to this body, and his departure from it through the gloomy portals of death, and the ra diant temple of enduring fame. OPPOSITION POST OFFICES AND MAIL I ROUTES. The establishment of an opposition post office arrangement by a private company whose head quarters are in New York, aud who propose to carry letters, for a much less sum than is charged by the United States, between the principal cities on the seaboard, is, to say the least of it, a very extraordinary movement, and we hold it to be one which should be arrested by the strong arm of the Government. It may be said there is no law to prohibit men from travelling with a trunk full of papers or letters, and that therefore the plan cannot be broken up. If there be no such law there should be, and the sooner if is passed the better. There is a law authorizing search to be made for smuggled goods?let Congress pass one authorizing search to be made for smuggled mails ; for, without the power of self protection and self-defence, it is impossible our Post Office establishment cau be maintained. It is upon a few routes, those between the principal cities on the Atlantic border, that the Government is able to make profit enough to meet the losses sustained upon those in the inte rior and sparsely sallied sections of the country. The Post Office establishment, as a whole, barely sustains itself, and, if deprived of the profit derived from the routes beforementidned, it must either become a heavy burden upon the Treasury, or be abandoned altogether. Will the people agree to either alternative ? Will the West and South consent to dispeuse with Government mails, and take their chance of get ting letters and papers by private mails? If not, then must they clothe the Postmaster Gen eral, and other officers of the Government, with the power necessary to arrest and punish those who may attempt to break up the establishment, or who shall carry letters for hire on any mail route in the United States, or on board any steamboat, rail car, stage coach, or other con veyance, running upon such mail routes, river, lake, railroad, or highway. It is singular what notions prevail in regard to cheating the Government. Few think it a crime to smuggle, for instance, and he who can successfully defraud the General Government, not only does not think himself guilty of a crime, but plumes himself on having been extremely smart. This attempt to defraud the Post Office is an act of the same character as smuggling. [?7* Having given a sketch of Mr. Barrow's truthful and touching eulogy upon hia late dis tinguished colleague, Judge Porter, we this morning copy that of Mr. Benton. The Senate recently confirmed, " nemine dis sentient e" the nomination of Lieut. Colonel Bennet Riley, 2d Infantry, to a Brevet Colo nelcy in the Army. This distinguished mark of consideration, by the Senate of the United States, has been awarded to Colonel Riley, for his gallantry on several occasions on the Canada frontier, during the war with England, and for his uniform obedience of orders, and faithful service from that period to the present. Maine Election.?In the seventh district of Maine returns from 78 towns gave Robinson (Whig) 3,364 votes, Cary (Loco) 3,183, and 118 scattering, leaving Robinson 63 majority over all. .There are yet 17 towns and settlements to be heard from, the votes of which were very small at the last trial. In these places there were for Robinson 66 votes, for Cary 104, scattering 49. If Mr. Robinson has gained 25 votes in the places not yet heard from, he is elected. Since the above was in type, we have learned through private letters received in this city that Robinson is elecied in the 7th district of Maine, and that Abbot is also elected in the 3d district i of Massachusetts. The New Orleans papers of the 26th ult. say nothing of the election of a United States Sena tor in the place of the Hon. Alexander Porter, deceased, 60 the resolution we referred to as pending at the last advices could not have passed the Legislature. Mr. Clav?The following letter from Mr. Clay, addressed to a committee of the Clay Club of Montgomery, Ala: ama, will afford his friends some information with regard to his route through the Southern States: New Ok leans, Jan. 6, 1844. Gentlemrn : I have received here your friendly letter, inquiring ihe time of my arrival at Mont gomery, m my route to the southern Atlantic Statep, and I take great pleasure in communi. eating the desired information as far as practica ble. I purpose leaving this city towards the 25th of February for Mobile, where I shall remain a few days. 1 wish to take my departure from that city the 1st, 2d, or 3d of March, according to cir cumstances. You can 'judge better than I the requisite time to make the voyage to Montgom ery. I shall be most happy to meet and exchange friendly salutations in that city with any of iny fellow-citizens who may be desirous of seeing me. I am, with respect, your friend and obedient servant, II. CLAY. Messrs. R. D. Wake, and others, Committee. Effect of the Tariff.?The Washington (W ilkes county Georgia) News says?"A rumor, which we believe to be true, as it comes to us well authenticated, says that a wea'thy English Company have purchased a large tract of land (about 8,(XX) acres) in South Carolina, seven miles above Petersburg, Georgia, on the Savan nah river, including great water privileges, for the purpose of entering largely into the business of manufacturing cotton goods, tic. It is intended, it is said, to import all the requisite workmen from England, who aro to be settled on the land ; thus forming an English colonv in the borderc of the Palmetto State. [All right, go ahead!] The Weather.?At Montpelier, Vermont, on the 21st inst., the thermometer indicated forty degrees bf.low zero?mertury frozen. Wonder? how cold would it have boon, had the mercury not have frozen 1 On Sunday morning last, at Hollis, Maine, the mercury stood at 30 degrees below zero At Troy, on Sunday, the mercury stood at 20 degrees below zero ; at Pittsfield the same. At Poughkeepsio 19 below. At Troy on Monday morning, 12 below. Neither on Sunday nor Mon day did the mercury rise above zero during the day. At Portland, Maine, tie mercury, as indicated by several thermometers about town, lell to 9 de grees below zero. At Saratoga, on the 27th ult., the thermometer fell to 38 degrees below zero. It ranged from 29 to 38 for the three following days. At Whitehall it marked 20 below. At Dover, N. II., on the '-i8th ult., it stood at 28 below. A Fatal Occukrfnce.?The Vicksburg Sen tinel records a tragical affair, which took place on the 16th ult., at the wood yard of Mr. Thos. Mason, in the upper part of that county, and by which Mr. W. B. Richards, a clerk of the 6t.eamboat Yucatan, lost his life : " It seems that the ? Yucatan' stopped to wood at Mr. Mason's yard, which i? under charge of Win. Kinchelo, and a dispute occurring between Kinchelo an 1 Richards, as to the quantity of wood in a certain pile, Richards struck Kinchelo sev eral times with a stick or measuring rod, which he happened to have in his hand at the time. Kin chelo retreated alter having received the first blow, and kept doing so until he had receded some twelve or fifteen feet from where he stood at the time of the assault. Some one, probably one of the officers or hands of the boat, cried out repeatedly to Richards, " kill him, shoot the ras cal," and Richards was in the act of advancing again on Kinchelo, when the latter drew a pistol and shot him right through the heart. Richards lived only a few moments after being shot. Mr. Kinchelo at once surrendered himself to the captain of the 4 Yucatan,' requesting to be brought to Vicksburg for trial, and exclaiming, ' Oh, that I had not carried a pistol !' The boat being on her upward passage, the captain said he could not take him to Vicksburg, but had him taken to Princeton, and delivered to the authorities." Important Arrf.st.?Two respectable look ing men, named Charles Botsford and George Gage, were arrested on Wednesday night last, in New York, charged with uttering altered Treasury notes, knowing them to have been altered. A few months ago, the sum of $2,100 in Trea sury notes, consisting of one $-300, and the re mainder in $50 and $100 notes, were mailed at Van Buren, Arkansas, bv a gentleman named Campbell, for St. Louis, l>y the way of Louis ville, and were purloined in one of the Post offices on the route, so that :hey never reached their destination. On the same night that the package was mailed, Mr. Campbell was assas sinated at Van Buren. He was a lawyer by profession, and a partner of Judge Parshall, who is now in New York. The numbers of the Treasury notes were retained, and a good look out since kept for them. Within a short time some of the same notes, altered, (as making 450, 458, &c.) have been placed in circulation, which led to the arrest of Gage and Botsford. It appears that Botsford was an assistant Post master at that time at Fayetteville, Arkansas, (about fifty miles from Van Buren,) and the fifth Post-office from it, on the Louisville route. He left there some time afterwards and came to New York, where he joined his old friend Gage, who keeps a kind of broker's office in West Broadway, near Leonard street. He boards at present, or did previous to this arrest, at No. 46 i Hudson street, and has a wife and child. He was poor, it is said, when he left Van Buren, and on his first arrival here, but has been well in funds since. Gage and himself hare been very intimate. Mr. Baker, broker, testified to Gage passing upon him some treasury notes, which have been identified as those mailed, and Mr. Secor, broker, corner Broadway and Canal street, on the examination yesterday afternoon, testified, that the prisoners came to his office together, and that Gage got him to change a $500 and a $100 Treasury note. In relation to the murder of Mr. Campbell, it is feared that it was connected with the mailing of the package, to destroy his testimony as to mailing, or something of the kind, but, of course, thai is all conjecture.?N. Y. Sun. From Buenos Avres.?The Rosabella, at Sa lem, brings dates to November 18. The papers contain bulletins of five battles, the principal one of which gives an account of a decisive victory gained by the Buenos Ayrean General, Gomez, over the Montevidean General, Silvia, with 1,200 men, at Cerro del Palado. The latter is reported lo have lost 300 killed, with 70 prisoners. Go mez reports only 8 killed and 10 wounded. The other bulletins are accounts of small vic tories and massacres. Tbe latest intelligence represents Rivera as having been driven nearly to the Brazilian frontier, closely pursued by Gen eral Urquiza. The Buenos Ayrean papers entirely in the in terest of Rosas speak in bitter terms of the course of the British commodore Purvis, with regard to the blockade, as having been the means of pro longing the war; and among the intercepted let. ters to Rivera from his fellow rulers within the vails of Montevideo, which they contiue to pub lish, are some showing that the Montevideans looked on the commodore as a friend Rosas, by a decree of November 9, requires the Consignees and shippers of vessels exporting any articles of provisions to give bonds that those articles shall not reach Montevideo. We wore visited yesterday at our sanctum by a most extraordinary personage. He presented a voluminous manuscript setting forth his claims to the Presidency of the United States. He is from Illinoip, Tazewell county, and was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and appears to be about. 70 years old. His name is "Peter Sprinkle." He calls himself the backwoodH can didate, and really believes that he is the only man that should be elected. Says " Van is the great est rascal now living, that he cheated him out of eighty acres of good land." He thinks even " Mr. Clay has no chance if lie can get tome pa per to give him a start." Clay he says is a great man, but can't be trusted."?N. O. Fashion. Slavery in Oregon.?A Methodist iniuiod* ?iry in our far western territory, in a communica tion published in the Western Christian Advocate, says that slavery in that country has existed from tiuie immemorial. The stronger tribes make war on the weaker, take prisoners and enslave them. And "many of the settlers, both French and American, buy and sell slaves. By these most of the work of farmflr is done." A correspondent of the Cincinnati Chronicle says: In Ohio there are 1,559 miles of railroads and canals, built at a cost of $15,920,328. In j Cincinnati there are butchered about fifty acres ofhosrs. It exports also about the same num ber of acres of whiskey?deep enough to float a canal boat, and owns nineteen-twentieths of 67 - | steamboats, costing $1,017,000, 11,298 tons em ploying 1,250 hands. The increase of the West is indeed astonishing; there have been more ! buildings erected in Cincinnati during the last , four years, than any fifteen years previous This year there Ijave been built 1,003 buildings, 736 | of which were brick. fa Port Wine.?As the consumption of wine has evidently decreased, it probably is not of much consnquence to inquire into its component par s. Dr. 1 racy, in one of his lectures, said that tn one year the quantity of Port wine im ported into Guernsey from Oporto, was 135 pipe9 and 20 hogsheads, and in the same year there were landed in the London docks alone, from I Guernsey, 2,345 pipes and 162 hogsheads. Some years no wine is imported into Guernsey, and yet hundreds of pipes are shipped thence to London. The Doctor read a recipe for making Port Wine, which comprised red beet root, [ brandy, sugar, logwood, rhatany root, See., and related an anecdote of a carpet manufacturer, who, on hearing the list read, exclaimed?" Oh] now I understand why, when I have gone to the J docks to purchase logwood, I have always found I one of the principal wine merchants there, pick ing out all the choice pieces." Immense quan tities of logwood, likewise, are imported into Marseilles.? N. Y.
