1 1 S Contrary notwithstanding Thnt the result of the lesson should be exhibited iu the coun cils of the nation, is one of the bkss-d fruits of the political regeneration, and more to be approved than rejected. "Shoot the deserters," was the malignant and savage cry of detested Loco-foeoism. whenever a member of the party attempted to draw the breath of freedom, or to speak the language of the conscience. So now, if they do not anticipate, they commend the same infamous policy to the friends and sup porters of Gen. Harrison- No sooner had Mr. Wise begun to express a doubt as to the propriety of some of the measures of his friends, than the Globe and Richmond En quirer clapped their hands with delight, judging from the discipline of their own camp that "to doubt was to ba damned." "The' tomahawk is raised to strike," ex claims the enraptured Enquirer: "Mr. Wist; has committed, the unpardonable sin," and all that, the whole of which we pronounce an un worthy7 attack and libel upon the Dem ocratic Harrison party, and upon Mr. Wise. They have not yet adopted the intolerant and intolerable isciplineof Loco-focoism which frowns upon every dawn of a free , thought, and denounces every, man who ; dares express an independant opinion, a de " sorter, to be ignomini usly shot No. The i discipline of camps and courts martial isnot the disci plme of the American people, nor dries it belong to, or. is it to be countenanced - v the enlightened genius of her free insti tutions. When the day comes that opinion 'is no longer tolerated in this land, the spirit of liberty will have lied, and we shall ha'e become a nation of slaves. The members of the Democratic Harrison pmy, ia and out of Congress, are freemen ini they are not to be seduced from the co nscientious :ischarga of their dut es by tie devices of bankrupt Loco-focoism, wi.ile tJeir o n good snse and the fitat experi- eice of Mr. Van' Wren's party,, will pre- serve them, we trust. f to n sclfd-?nuucution ani self de trillion.. The efforts of the Richmond Enquirer to. stir up sedition and Ifacaon, will be as fruitless as thev are ua Iptitiotic. Mr. Wise, in our opinion Wl 11 ViooU upon them with the contempt they nerlt. Madisonian : THE SENATE LAND DEBATE has rnded at last, in the passing by large ma ority, of the permanent prospective pre-emp tion bill, as origina ly proposed; and the bill has now to uniergo the ordeal of the House or" Representatives. The proposition, originally Mr. Calhoun's hnt moved as an amenJment to the bill by Mr. Young proposing a conditional cession of public-lands to the States within which th'rv li was rejected by a large majority. The amendment moved by Mr Cnu n dm. for coupling with the pre-emption prin ciple5 tn- ui5?nau:ion of the proceeds oi tae Public I.j'-m Is'-among ail tiie St ite?, in pro poition to their right of propp.it v therein, was negatived by a small majority; -a m i i irity produced, probably, by the uppretn-n-s'wn en thp mia Is of somi St-nators thattue in- ro In :tion of th it en actment intj tliii mi?'abe. the means of defeating tiie biil f-.r prt-rniption, which they are iu fivor of on its own merits, and therefore not willing to connect with any other project. Wu cannot but hope, howevev, that the two measures will at last go hand in h;t- d, and that, if they be male the subjects of different acts, the one act witl not lag feir in the rear of th other whether it piss at this sessionor the next. The f.xtent of the majority in favor of the permanent prospective pre-emption law may perhaps surprise some oi qur reaaers, vvuu are not prepared for what, at first sight ap pears to ve so radical a chinge in our Land system. AThefact is, however, as we under stand, thi principle of that bill is already as effective! jr a part of the Land system as if it had been in legal existence for forty years. There is a conventional law, stronger than any temptatiou to break it, which now protects" the actual settler against any com petition at. sales of Public Lands. And this bill has pasVed the Senate by such a majori by under the infltience of the argument that .it is better to legalize what is incurableand inevitable, than to keep on the statue-book a provision which is a dead letter. Of the con clusiveness of this argument we say nothing; but it certainly was not without its effecteon the Senate. Nat. Int. B THE DEAD NAPOLEON." The Paris Correspondent of the New York Commercial, gives the following sin gular anecdote connected with the funeral honors paid to the great Emperor? "You are aware, lhat theWnvoi reaehed - Courbevoi cn Monday afternoon.

In the United States Hos.-se of Repre sentatives, on the 25th Dr. Duncan, in a speech upon the Treasury -note bill, made some remarks which were deemed an impu tation upon the courage of Gen.
