In selecting their agent for this shame less purpose, they manifested some jndg; ment. Thomas F. Marshall, who, in smneof his wild flights, had attracted mach attention, by his high and truthful compli ments to Mr. Adams and to New-England, was taken up by them, and flattered till his judgment gave way4 under the delicious intoxication, and he consented to be their tool. . - v.-:"fr- The southerners came into the House this morning with looks and movements, which, to the 'commonest eyes, betrayed their consciousness of some awful and terrible movement on their part, which, in their weak fancies, was to overwhelm and crush Mr. Adams and his cause forever. They; looked dark enough some pale brown, some yellow, some blue, and some black- with lips compressed and breath drawn hard. Thev sralhered into stouds by themselves, nnd couversed in deep whispers; 1 and the whole aspect of the scene, at 12 o'clock, was that of a con spiracy, just about to burst into a revolu tion. lhiy waited impatiently for the reading of the journal, to opeu the battery ; but Mr. Filmore secured the floor, and asked leave to make some important re ports-from the committee on Wavs and Means, with a view to have the bills print ed and referred to the committee of the Whole for future action. ,.- Mr. Marshall then rose before a crowd ed House and galleries. Conticuere omnes, intentique ora teneb&nt. , I shall not attempt to crive a summary of what was then done and said. The full, accurate, rich and admirable report in the National Intelligencer, ought to -be copied entire, if your limits will admit; and 1 do not know what literary or com mercial matters, or what news, foreign or domestic, should be allowed to weigh against the vitally important details of these scenes, big as each hour is with the fate of the nation. Marshall felt the historical importance ot his position, and laid himself out in it, to his utmost ability. He spoke in a tone of solemnity and coolness most unusual with him, and 'attempted to take a high magisterial and judicial elevation, from which, in the insolence of his conceit, he thought to pour down the thunders of con demnation on the venerable object of his attack, a? a judge pronouncing sentence on a convicted culprit in the sight of ap proving men and angels. Warming some what with the imposing silent attention of the vast, unrnoving concourse, he expand ed and inflated into an exhibition of his own past relations to tiie ex-President, and represented him-selr as eminently qualified to act his chosen part of the prosecutor, judge, and executioner of him who had long been the object of his veneration, af fection and support. When he concluded, and the Speaker announced to Mr. Adams that his posilton entitled him to the floor, I thought of a parallel scene, Then Agrippa said unto Paul, it is permitted unto thee to speak for thyself And Paul stretched fonh his hand and said perpetual balance produced by excess should legislate in T6 Ihioui ioviw"-, - o-- - . -.,lnta iIip rorrpner. Tain io iguiu.v - lhope we may be able to get through i tariff which will not leave our industry entirely at the mercy of foreign capital J though I confess 1 hope almost against hope. The compromise of 1833 was a pat mistake. We yielded ground which it is not easy to recover; and what is more, we taught the Souththe efHcacy of threatening. The 'compromise must be rblaud. It is impossible that all our tnanofactures should be sustained with a "horizontal" tariff of 20 per cent. In deed we must not permit it to descend lo 20 per cent. ' But the moment we tomb ihe "compromise" we put a .match to a ipjazlne. There will be terrible explo siocs when we come to grapple with this great question.,' But the North are coin- in" bdtcrto understand the meaning of Southern blustering, and the South begins io tee that we better understand it. I da hope and pray that the time may come when the North will be united upon itie "round of their true interests when ire shall have few, if any, Northern men with Southern principles. Slavery has ruled this great country long enough. 1 hope the lime is not far distant when its kiinion will-cease. The great Anti Slavery movement is destined to accom- fliah what would have remained long unac com pli shed without it. The bearings o it great movement upon the whole o u national polic will bo immense. The I fot'h are beginning to see it. The hand , Vitir.g upon the wall troubles them.

A strong exhibition of the facts in the case, mostly in cold, calm, logical, "mea sured sentences, concluded Mr. Adams's high-loned appeal from the profane bab blers of the slavish generation, to the saint ed fathers of that system of revolutionary liberty, of which he is the coeval and the noblest champion and representative. And then he sat down, vindicated, victor ious. Mr. Everett, of Vermont, a grave, quiet, unexcitable man, eminent for his prud ence and good sense, then spuke briefly in condemnation of the atricious assault which the proposed resolution made upon the venerated Mr. Adams, and concluded by moving a postponement till Monday. Then got up Mr. Henry A, Wise, and in his own peculiar inimitable ridiculous style of solemn, empty-headed pomposity, set himself to do away the evident effect of Mr. Adams's procedure, by calling upon the House to 'listen to a voice from the tomb ! ' He called for the reading of the Farewell Address of Washington. When the Clerk read ihe famous passage Frown indignanttly,' &c. Mr. Wise screamed out in the style of a tragedy hero Read that again I ' The feeble'imita tion.vvastoo palpably ridiculous. It was almost killing. The whole " audience burst into merciless laughter at this real ization of the fable of the frog and the tx. And the poor frog seemed for the monent to have actually exploded with the shock. He sat with such a face as I did not sup pose any man was capable of putting on ; and, lo punish the House, he made the poor Clerk read a dozen tedious passages of the atJdres?, in spite of the remonstrances that all were perfectly familiar with the admirable document in question. It put me in mind of Hark from the tombs a doleful sound.' Mr. Adams increased the roar of laughter by calling on the Clerk to re;id the repeatead clause again; and he pointed out its proper application, by saying That shoold have been thought of when the gag -lav; was passed. -. Wise then went on with redoubled bitterness, and for two hours lavished every species of malignant impertinence upon Mr. Adams. He called him a vampire, an abuser of his father, &c. n his inco herent .ravings, he talked of an English party, a French jacobin party, with one or both of which he identified the modern abolitionists; and so on, reading column after column from the Emancipator and other abolition papers, till his friends moved and carried an adjournment, to en able him to continue to-morrow.

Thursday, Feb. 10, 1841. In the House, Dr. W. B. Durgan, of duiucy, submitted ihe fo!lotf incr order, which was passed in concurrence, not more than six or eiffht voting in the nega tive. We -shall look with much interest, for the report of that committee, which is to express the sense our Legislature enter tains of a subject so important io Massac husetts. The order is as follows : Oidered, That the Committee to whom was referred the petition of Francu Jack son and others, be instructed to draft re solutions expressive of ihe sense which the Legislature entertains of the insult and indignity offered to Massachusetts, in the attempjn the House of Representatives of the United Stales, to fasten upon her venerable and worlJ-honored citizen and distinguished representative, John Quincy Adams, the charge of subornation of per jury and high treason, for having present ed, in the faithful discharge of his duty, a memorial from citizens of this common wealth., j,. Also that this Committee furthermore be instructed to inquire whether this as sault upon ex-President Adams for main taining the right of his constituents to " as semble and petition Congress for a redress of their grievances," is not one of a series of aggressions upon tne rights and in terests of the free States, on the part of ihe her own maid, once a slave of Judge Up shur to the trader, for a trivial piece of impertinence. Rumsellers put ta their Trumps. One of our citizens being in Gray a few" days since, learned the following factj. A few days since, a traveller called at a temper ance tavern in that place, kept by Mr. Foss, and ordered-his horse to be put up. Soon after ilus was done, he inquired if this was a temperance, tavern; being told that it was, he replied that he could not stop there, and must have his horse. He, then drove to Dea. BarrelPs and had the precaution to inq iire if that was a tem perance house. Being answered in the affirmative, he turned thort about, and drove io the tavern, where rum is yet sold.
