[From (bo WasHi?glou Union.]
simet. Boners sfbkcu ox iimas,
We laid before our readers lately the eloquent
speech made hi the Senate some days
ago by Judgo Butler., oo the questions connected
with Kansas affairs, 'ihere are two
or three points in this speech which maue a
powerful impression in the Senate chamber
when it was delivered, and they have been
admired by the whole country for the lofty
patriotism of their sentiments as we]l as the
ehiilling eloquence of their lauguage. We
refer particularly to his earnest and impassioned
vindication of tho character of Ueneral
Atchison, and bis equally earnest and
impressive rebuke of the assault made by
Mr. Iiale upon tho Supremo Court. In
the course of the speech of Mr. Harlan, on
Thursday last, lie alluded to the remark of
Mr. Butler made in the speech referred to,
in which he said that ho would rather that
the Union should be dissolved in preference
to be in tr in h flnion wiihmit ilia nmiiwiini.
? o fiv?iv%ivu
of a constitution which gives him equality.
Mr. Harlan construed this remark to lUwan
that Mr. Butlor preferred a dissolution of
the Union rather than that the people of
the Territory^should have the power to exclude
slavery from it. Mr. Butler was absent
when the allusion was made; but after
Mr. Harlan had concluded, the following
remarks were made:
"Mr. Butler.?Sir, I say now calmly,
that when a northern majority shall acquire
such a control over the legislation of this
country as to disfranchise the slaveholding
States in auy respect in which they have
an equality under tho Constitution of the
country, L will not agree to live under this
Government wlieu the Union can survive
the Constitution. Tlint is my sentiment. 1
am not a slave to mbmit myself to legislation
controlled by mere discretion. Mr.
Piesident, if Goorgo Washington ami Benjamin
Franklin, and the wisest men who
ever lived, were to come hero and attempt
to legislate under tho dictates of mero discretion,
aud should do me an injustice, 1
would bo n craven and a traitor to the
principles of Afuy/ia Ckartu?to everything
which I have learned fi-om tho highest
sources of history?if I could submit to
any measure that would place my children
the ninety-nine hundredth pait of an inch
beneath the cbildreu of the Senator from
"Mr. Boll, of Tennessee.?I do not wish
to interfere in this matter, but 1 will state
what I understood the Senator from Iowa
to say.
"Mr. Butler.? I did not hear his re- '
n-.ark; I was not here when ho inado it. f
"Mr. Bell, of Tennessee.?The Senator
from Iowa took the distinct ground, that tho
interpretation of the views of tho gentleman
from South Carolina was, that tho 'equality*
of which ho spoke consisted in the citizens
of tho Southern Slates having the
right, duiing the whole period oftcriilorial
governments I" the Territories, to go there I
with their slaves before a constitution i
wai formed. I understood the SeiKw'.,r
from Iowa to say that the Senator from
South Carolina had denied that the people
of the Territory of Kansas, under their j
organic law, could exclude slavery, if they
should think proper, at the commencement
of their territorial government, but mu.-t
admit slavery until the Territory shall be
admitted into the Union with a Stale constitution.
That is what I understood him
to say.
"Mr. Duller.?This is rather an ambulatory
kind of issue. I cannot find out what :
is the meaning of tho Senator.
"Mr, Harlan.?I will state to the hon- 1
orable Senator from South Carolina what 1
said. The honorable Senator from Teunessce
has fairly presented the argument; but
my view was based on the statement of the
honorable Senator from South Carolina,
and tho honorable Senator from Georgia,
[Mr. Toombs.] It was argumentative
merely. 1 quoted, as nearly as I could roniember,
the substance of the remarks ol
the Senator from South Carolina; and then :
, 1 interpreted the meaning of his phraseulo- j
gy uy quoting troin tho speech of tlie
Senator from Georgia.
"Mr. Halo.?That is it, exactly.
?. "Mr. Butler.? Well, sir; 1 want no copartnership
with anybody in making
speeches. If the Senator from Iowa were
on tho tripod to morrow at the Delphic
oracle, I would not take his interpretation
of my speech. lie might place a Dythia
.there, and instruct her, and l'hilipiso her,
if he chose, but 1 would not take bi? interpretation.
Why, sir, I avoided that very
question in regard to the powers of the
territorial government. Ho cannot find a
word in iny speech upon that question.
The potential faculty of a territoiial gov
eminent is one over which I should exeiciso
a very 'delicate control. I u ver
contended that I desired a law to carry
slavery into any Territory, and I never
wanted a law to exclude it. All that 1
have contended for is, that tho common
domain of this government, acquired l>y
the common blood and treasure of all parts
of tiie United States, shall he just ns free
to one class of citizens as to another. When
the people of a Territory are in the process
of approaching what may ho called the
maturity of their territoiial existence?a
Slato government?1 say mr.cli is to he
paidoned to the opinion which prevails at
the lime. But, sir, ifan insulting intcrfer
?iice wete to l>o made t?y u majority of I
*.'ongreps, or rirh an ' crfcfrence as would
cscludc a slaveholder on tho broad ground
(lint he wftj unworthy if equnhly with a
non-slaveholding population, do you suppose
I would stay in the Union if I could
get out of itf
"That is th? titie docttine. I do not
wish to live under litis government when
tho constitution perishes. 1 believe the
gentleman is or has been in the church.
| Mr. Harlan. Yes, sir.] I have very
yrent respect for the church, and for the
Senator; but I fear lie contends that, while
tho letter killeth, the spirit cannot give

The New York Courier, commenting
upon ft charge delivered by it judge of that wj,
city to it grand jury, makes some remarks |)VI
relative to the responsibilities and the uiifaithfulness
of jurors that may be read <
with advautago 111 other localities than that full
for which they wero specially designed:
Judge Capron dwells wifh just etuphnsis j.
upon the sanctity and supremacy of law, Jr;
and nobly vindicates ils claims upon its lo
own sworn ministers. lie hits not spared
the jury-box itself, which judges arebultoo m0
apt lo tront as if, like the throno, it was _ef
"hedged in with divinity." llo tells the '
grand jury plainly, that petit iurors, like j, J
other public servants, are capnble of being nei
actuated by bad motives, and that their j9 (
conduct is justly subject to inquisition. We gl;1
are glad at least to hear this stylo of speech. |,j8
It is r. positive fact that one of the principal
causes of tho great iiupunily of criino in ;n
this city has been tho unfaithfulness of pe- pOI
tit jurors in wilfully preventing an agree- i
meat upon a verdict. The juror in tho late
Ebling case, who, according to tho publish- wc
ed statement of oue or his fellows, refused p}-1?
to consult, with the declaration that til! tho j,ja
City Ilall rotted down ho would never ujj
agree to a verdict which should send Eb
ling to tho State prison, was but one of a ^
contumacious class of jurors who have for ?el
years weighed liko an incubus upon the
administration of justice in this city. Ho ,no
flagrantly violated his oath to give a true ^,ol
verdict according to evidence, and as richly 1 on
deserves the Slate's piison : s any perjuror |,j4
now within its walls. Nay, more; for the 1 on
false words of a witness upon tiieslaud may jy,
bo neutralized l?y cross-examination or overborne
by other evidence; but tho false con- r,.?
duct of a juror utterly and inevitably NVft
thwarts and foils lire end of justice in the ^j|
ponding trial. ! \p
It is a difficult and invidious task, wo '
know, to judge between tho firmness of a , ^ur
conscientious conviction and thccontumacy I
of a foregone conclusion; but it is a subject ycj"
upon w hich tho law has a right to make j ?n
inquiry and pass judgment, and upon wj,
which public opinion, too, lias a right to
express itself. There is nothing in the
function or character of petit jurors that cre
should any more shield them, in the case t]0
of unfaithfulness, from public nnimndvor- , re,
sion or from legal punishment than any j
other class of public servants. In fact their i roj
guilt, if guilty, is deeper, for .: is propor- i nn<
lioned to tho sacredncss of tho responsibili Im
ty intrusted to them; and what civil re ,
sponsibility can be like the juror's? Who |
like hiin decides upon character,life, liberty |nj
and properly? Lord Brougham said that j?.,
"tho whole machinery of government - ' ,jK
King, Lords, and Commons?is simply to j nc,
get twelve men into a jury-box," and the cr|]
expression is not too strong to those who
believo as we do that tho highest interest
of human society is justice, and that even t|K
freedom is secondary to it. Our jury boxes p0
have been open to evil influences in a way t|,c
they should not have been; their character | 0jp
must be redeemed, and Judge Capron lias i as|
entitled himself to the public thanks, in . C|K
baldly declaring the necessity*. i jnv

A debate in the Senate on Wednesday ' ^
last discloses some precious facta touching i
the expenditures of the Government in tho |
matter of printing and publishing book* ~
and inapt in illustration of tho navels of ^
naval gentlemen and other officials. What j
will the reader think when he i< told that ' ^
the cost of publishing Lieut. Wilkes'book,
which grew out of the Antarctic exploring ,
expedition, has already amounted to a .
million and a quarter of dollars? So says 1 j.
Mr. Clayton* in the debate to which we 10- ' ,
for. lie also stated that Coinmodoro l'er- ,
ry's book on Japan has cost the Government
two hundred thousand dollars, whilo ' ,
threo hundred is the estimate for printing
the teports and engravings of the rcconnoi- ; J'J'
sauces of tho l'.icitio railroad routes. These j -j-|
expenses, ioi it ue remarket!, arc not ! ,*|ia
any work tlono in expeditions referro I to,
but are simply t!?o co>t of getting an ao- j
count of them upon paper, in readiness for *10
circulation. Was there ever such aboini- ! j
liable extravagance and waste of the public W,
money a* this? Su|
No wonder that Mr. Chittenden exclaims j (
that the Senate of the I'nited States has1 ant
l eionte a great publishing house, outvie ; eat:
ing even the Harpers in tho extent and J ?? '
magnificence of its publications. The rocognition
of the fact, wo aro glad to see, eon
disgusts him wilh-tlio wliole busine-e, and kim
leads him to declare that he wish* s to see ; v'?l
an end put to it. It is tlie same with Mr.
Clayton, who is not less emphatic in his r ,a
denunciation of these schemes of individual <l.*.
profit and glory. Wo should like to know '? ?<
how mueh money the various individuals
connected with the-o several publishing en- ||i|M
terprisea have made. It would he a cm ions n?,|
exposure if they could be anatomized ami by i
laid bare to a wondering public. Vet these j
aro but samples of works of tbc same d?s
criptioti done by the same authority, and y
at the same prodigal cost. There will be liu*
but too much rejoicing if tho venerable 'I
Senators from Delaware ami Kentucky do 1 '
not become mollified by time and familiarity
with these particular expenditures, and |.
allow their spasm of economy to subside., n???
It takes a flinty nature to resist tho bland c,,:"
seductions of the federal capital in the in it;'
tcr of tho expenditure of money for what ,,'r |
ever purpose; and we confess, not without ficc
emotions of regret, that it is not such gen lion
tlcir.cn as the Senators we have named to 11
w hom we look for consistent devotion to 1,11
the maxims of frugality. Of our eminent "
public men, it is true, that we find their be u
impulses often light, and their spontaneous wen
sentiments as frequently just; but it is also ;
true that neither stand the test of a vigor j lo*
ous press inc. "Greatness," said Mr. Duike u?,|
"is never exact." No doubt the apothegm T
was invented by him to cover just such
cases as public life is constantly affording (i j
of a generous disregard of tho vulgar mat- j.,,M

As France and Europo are intoxicated
;h joy at the birth of an heir to the iin ial
throne of Napoleon, we may be parked
for the following details of .he event.
L)n Sunday morning, a few minutes bee
three o'clock, the sutferings of her Maly
assumed so decided a character that
was deemed advisable to call :n the
uces and grand dignitaries of the empire
witness the birth of the imperial infant.
At a quarter to 3 o'clock on Sunday
riling, thti 10th, the child made his apirauce
in this sinful world, and the Paris

hop of Adras, after which the Abbe Ueco
preached a sermon from the text
lesscd is he that comelli in the name of

in these term: "lieslow on him tho
litis and magnanimity of his father, tho
idness and inexhaustible charily of his
ther, the sincere faith and devotion of

him a heart worthy of his destiny and
name!" A naino was then bestowed
tho infant?"Napoleon Eugene Louis
hi Joseph, Jils tic /Vance."
This appellation was entered in tho Paris
;istors and signed by the Emperor, being
ncased by Prince Murat, tho Duke oi
!ia. Marshal Yaillant, Minister of War,
Troplong, President of the Senate, and

The objeclious to representation at Cincinuut,
are daily becoming more feeble. The South Car- tin
v/ictcs, wloch * the on'vet vrry* in decided opposi- po
tiou, yields to the current, and floats Into tbc meas- j iui
ure wiili u qualification that Mr. Pierce ulotiv shall ' leg
have ihe support of this State. Well, we have no we
sort of objection to tusking the present Executive oui
. h? r tiiat choice, though wc do most earreslly ex- tnt
hurt our State Convention to prevent the adoption
j of instructions of so narrow a character as to pre- on
elude support of sonic one else. We arc perfectly act
satisfied that Mr. Pierce will fail ol nomination,and not
that another must he chosen. It is useless to nr- ' cat
guu who that other may be. The Carolinian con- | noi
tends that wc shall show devotion to principle best sin
by adhesion to Mr. Puree. To our mind the very ; roi
reverse will be established by this course we only ! oil'
| show how closely we are wedded to the man. The | of
policy of the present administration is the policy of ' coi
j the party, and ramifies its whole extent. Except j W
j that Mr. Pierce is chief, the cabinet illustrates the [ W
coastitut oml integrity of llio paitv quit*- as cfTi- lev
ci -ntly as the Preaidelil?rs the voice of the lntt?-r is ! ing
no mo t potential than each of If* heads of depart* wc
mi*ut in a ccjiictl of government. Assumingt ' kn
I then, that the cabinet is a unit?the principles of the ! tin
administration are but the principles ot the cabinet j '
and party, and only repieseiitativcly the emanation ; tat
of the Executive. j to
It is also held that if we cannot succeed before hit
tlio piop'.e with Mr. Pierce, neither can wc with j coi
another name. We opine that this is fallacious. If coi
men were so constructed as to banish nil selfish rtn
considerations from their mind* >n election enn- , c.i|
tests, wc should concede* the tluim. Hut this is in
not to be ixpcctcd. Other elements will operate !
