lu C'ongr?-?*, Yc?crdBy.
In the Senate, Mr. Clay presented a me?
morial in favor of a modification of the
present Tariff, and ."'gave his views on the
subject, favoring the prayer of the petition?
ers. Mr. Gwin introduced a substitute for
Col. Fremont's bill for the settlement of
Littutl titles ana claims In California, and
the Senate adjourned till Thursday next.
In the House, Mr. Richardson of Ill
made an exceedingly amiable speech about
The Tribune and one of its Washington
Correspondents, which will be found
sketcht d in another column. The House
passed the bill prescribing the mode of tak?
ing testimt nv in regard to contested Elec?
tions, and then adjourned over till the day
after Christmas.
* Fi'irmlH of ilio Admin"miration.'
It setms hut. a few months ago?(* seems,
Madam ! nav it >.-')?that we were com?
pelled to show teeth against a bevy of
place-hunting letter-writers at Washington,
who, with some confederates outside, insist?
ed that every Whig who deemed it advisa?
ble to favor Mr. Clay's plan of Compro?
mise, ur even to entertain the idea of a
Compromise at all. ..ere "opposing the
Administration." Yes. it was zealously
contended last Summer that, to differ from
the then President's view of the expedient
course with regard to a grave and difficult
subject of National legislation purely. w*as
to "-.oppose the Administration" and evince
hostility to its venerated Chief!
Gen. Taylor has since died, and a fix-up
far less palatable to us than Mr. Clay's
much abused ? Omnibus' has been effected,
with the concurrence, as is well known, of
the succeeding President. It is by no
means so bad an ' Adjustment' -as it might
be, though we never catch a glimpse of
that monstrous hump on the back of Texas
without thinking how it might have been
better. Supplementary to ? the Omnibus,'
though no part of it, Congress passed two
bills abolishing the Slave-Trade in the Dis?
trict, of Columbia and providing more sum?
marily and rigorously for the capture and
restoration to Slavery of alleged Fugitives
therefrom?the former, very agreeable to
Northern feeling and sentiment; the latter
decidedly otherwise. This was to be ex?
pected, and not to be avoided. Every in?
telligent person must have anticipated a
popular ferment in the Free States as like?
ly to result from the passage of this Fugi?
tive Slave Act, and to be revived or in?
creased from time to time by proceedings
under it. We think no such, law was
needed?that the facilities for negro-catch?
ing which had sufficed for the last half cen?
tury would have answered for the next like?
wise. And if this act does suspend the
sacred right] of Habeas Corpus, (as the
hullabaloo now set up at the Vermont leg?
islature for presuming to pass an act re?
affirming and securing that right would
seem to imply,) then it will be impossible!
to enforce it without exciting a still more
determined ami general clamor for its repeal.
? All this, however, is quite aside from
the usual and natural subjects of party dif
ference in our Country. A portion of either
party concur in upholding the Fugitive
Slave Law ; another portion are quite as
heartily united in detesting it. And no
candid, intelligent man can deny that a large
majority of the opponents of this law are
Whigs, while a majority of its supporters
vote in the Opposition. To talk of this
law as a Whig measure, or make its sup?
port a touchstone of fidelity to the Nation?
al Administration, is practically to make
the President the head of the party which
opposed and the antagonist of that which
supported his election.
Yet what do we see ? First, an attempt
to commit the Whig party of New-York
to the support of this and other mr-a=ures
which a great majority of its members con?
demn? an attempt which, had if succeeded,
would have put the Whigs of New-York
where those of Pennsylvania and New
Jersey now are?then a like attempt to
shoulder off Horace Mann in Massachu?
setts, which did not harm him, but succeed?
ed in defeating Gov. Briggs and Senator
Winthrop, and upsetting the Whig ascend?
ancy in the State; and now we see the
same fatal course peristed in by the leading
Cotton journals of that State, backed by
The Republic at Washington, which can
have no result but to nail and perpetuate
the prostration of the Whig party in Mas?
sachusetts, and injuriously affect it in all
the Free States. We refer especially to
the concerted attacks on Mr. Scudder, the
Whig candidate for Congress in the Ne/.v
Bedford District, who, because he has
avowed himself hostile to the Fugitive
Slave Law and all measures of kindred
bearing, is marked fur proscription and de?
feat. We cannot say how many of the
Whig candidates for Congress in the seven
Districts where no choice was effected in
November arc in substantially the same
category with Mr. Scudder. but we cannot
be wrong in assuming that a majority of
them are so.
The logic resorted to in justification of
this proscription is substantially this:?
1 Mr. Eillmore is President, and the offi
1 cial head of the Whig party ; Mr. Fill
' more thinks the Fugitive Slave Law ought
?to be acquiesced in and sustained as an es
?sential element of a series of measures
?calculated to repress agitation and restore
?harmony to the Union: therefore, Mr.
'Scudder [whose devotion to old-fashioned
? Whig principles nobody questions] won't
' do for a Member of Congress, because he
' does not .sustain but condemns the Fugi
! live Slave Law.'
Here we have the worst feature of Jack
sonism revived?the testing all opinions by
the standard of conformity to the judgment
of an individual, and treating as heretical
al! who in any point come short of that
standard. It is not asked?' Is Mr. Scud?
der a Whig ?' but ? Is he a Fillmore man ?
?Do all his opinions accord with those of
the President ?' and, since he fails to satisfy
the requisition in one particular, he is to be
proscribed and defeated by Whig votes.
This is the identical spirit which defeated
five Whig candidates for Congress in thi3
State and elected Loeo-Focos in their stead
from Whig districts. Can any one believe
that a great party is to be held together
and maintain an ascendancy on so narrow
and unstable a platform as this?
We do not find an intimation that Mr.
Scudder was unfairly nominated ; and it
?eerns obvious that to drop him because he
dislikes the Fugitive Slave Law will not
! secure the election of a Whig. To pro?
scribe him on the ground taken by his ad
I versaries is to proscribe at least half the
I Whigs In the District, and how can they
I be expected to turn round and elect a Web
I sterian substitute ? The moment Whigs
< begin thus to cut each other, they seal their
j own overthrow. We can stand this if
i the office-holding, patronage-enjoying sec
i tion of the party can ; but is it worth their
I while thus to saw off the limb whereon
they are not uncomfortably seated .' We
trust they will think twice before deciding
to do it.

City were held yesterday and las: evening, for the
results of which see Advertising columns.
Thk G.vie.?The wind yesterday morning at
sunrise was from the South-west, with a mode?
rate breeze, which afterward increased to a gale ;
an? about 1 P.M. shifted to the North-west and
blew a hurricane for a ahort time. From the
effects of tl wind the tide fell very low. so much
so that the Hnmiiton-avenue and South Ferry
boats were aground in the slips, and the crossing
tor an hour or so was interrupted, causing great
annoyance to persons doing business in this City
and residing on the other side of the river. The
Staten Island boat did cot make the 2 or 6 o'clock
trips; leaving many of the residents of Richmond
County to lodge away from home.

Post-Office Robber, ?John P. Wellington,
K clerk in the Post-Office at Bamror, Maine, as
we learn from the Wkig and Courier, has been de?
tected in breaking open letters and stealing money
therefrom. lie is a young man, about 1!) years of
age, nnd had always been attentive to his duties in
the office and borne a good character for integrity.
About $1,200 which he is supposed to have stolen
Was found in his trunk. Several bill* found in his
'possession were identified as bavins been mailed
at Old Town for Boston. Wellington savs he
has never taken any money from letters mailed at
or directed to Uangor, but from letters passing
through the office, and that he usually detected the
fact oi letters containing money from feeling coin
:u them, not into remittance! by w?y of -nakinj

is good and safe in onr institutions, with a cier-ry
iLterpretitg that Bible, not in the fear of mar,, bat
in the fear of God. The clergy are the l?ngs of
the country, and their business is to brinL- the
country into contact with the iree and pure air of
God. There ou'.'lit to be no misunderstanding be?
tween the Church and State. He held the Bible
which he had in his hand (one brought over in the
Mayflower of no less account because it had been
twenty % ears in Georgia. But his discourseshouid
cot be long, but resemble a kiss which had been
said to consist of two heads and an application ?
Mr. Bellows concluded by hoping that the office of
the clergy would be always regarded with reipect
and appreciation in this country.
The Chair nest read the ?th tout:

Continent.
To this toa?t Pp.e-ton Hall, Esq. appropriate?
ly responded, justly eulogising the cause of the
New-England lathers for the establishing a sys?
tem of free public instruction. A palpable allu?
sion to Mr. Webster in the course of Mr. Hall's
speech drew forth long and warm applause.
The Ciiair then introduced with suitable re
maiks a feast which he said was not on the cata
logue among the regular toasts, but which he
doubted not even- one would place there with his
wl., le beert. It was ns follows :
The Constitution and :ie i'niun and their Chief Defend?
er. [Prolonged Chefr?.]
Hereupon Mr. Webster rose and replied at
length as follows t
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the New York
New England Society. Ye sons of New-Eng
lar.d, ye brethren o. the kindred tie. I nave
that I might behold a congregation wnose laces
bear the^lineamt-r.ts of New-Eogland origin, and
wiese hearts beat full with New England pulses.
I an. not a joung man. with very young blood in
my veins, but I thank God, stiil pretty freely
flowing, and I ha\e come here some hundred
miles to meet this Pilgrim Society, an orlshoot
fn m the Pilgrim Society of Massachusetts, to
wish \ou all. all sorts of happiness and prosperity.
Gentlemen, this has been a stormy, cAd, mhos
i itable. boisterous and inclement day. The winds

Plymouth on the S2d of December. 1620 ! In the
delivery of this passage. Mr. Webster's voice

the sea and obey her helm. [Loud cheers.] We
have hardly begun to realize the importance of
that little vessel freighted tjs she was with
the gems of civil and religious liberty and with
the Bible, the word ot God. Those gems have
taken root and thriven over the vast expanse of
this country. New-England Ii as transcended the
Alleganics, capped the Rot ky Mountains, gained
the shores of the Pacific, and I have not a doubt
that a year from this day a Pilgrim Society will
celebrate this same anniversary in California.?

Laughter and cheers.]
But, Gentlemen, I trespass too long. [No, no!
Go on. uo on !j Mine is not s new voice, nor the
voice ol a young man. and all that 1 have thought
on the subject of the New-England Colonies lias
been before expressed in this place and else?
where. But jour sentiment, Mr. President, is of
a larger and" more comprehensive nature. It
spebks of the Constitution of the Union which has
made us associates?fellow-citizens of those who
settled at Yorktown, of those who took rirst pos?
session of the Mississippi, ami now of those who
?rem all the corners of the earth have settled Cali?
fornia. I have had my doubts, I frankly confess,
whether our Republican system could be so vast?
ly extended without danger of its becoming weak?
er and falling to pieces. But the.se apprehensions
have not yet been realized. The distance is vast,
but the principles of our Government and the Re?
presentative system seem icdetinitely expan?
sive. And it even gains strength from it* exten?
sion. The parts become less separate unit*, and
more numbers of the whole the larger that whole
becomes. And the expansion of the system draws
after It everywhere attachment to the Union. I
lelic-ve that in California and New-Mexico a n.'w
life has inspired everybody on becoming united
t\ iih this confederacy. The people there are no
Ii uger the men they thought themselves. They
now lind that they are members of a great United
Government: they are proud and happy tobe
hailed citizens of the United States ol North
Amtrica. And I hope it will still hold good :hat
as our s> stem is extended it is made firmer and
strut gt.-. So it would seem it must be. Local
agitations produce iess disturbance. Why, I
venture to say. that if there has been any agitation
anywhere South of the Poromac?I will not define
n ore exactly?[laughter]?it has not been felt in
California- "All such agitation is localism. Our
system is not tobe destroyed by localism North
or South. Over all our local ideas, submerging,
absorbing them all, there is a great sentiment and
that is that we are Americans. It i? oar duty to
cherish this American sentiment, to go on united,
earrj it.g with us in our course those gr-.-at English
principles, (turning to Sir Henry Buiwer,! I mean,
Sir, Anglo-Saxon, English American principles.?
; Our children on the shores of the Pacific wiil in
? herit those principles with the language of Milton
i and Sbakspere Our ideas will penetrate still
i further, and the Mexican, the Spaniard, wiil learn
j the trial by jury, religious tolerance and the seen,
j city of individual rights. lApplause.j
Gentlemen, the day-spring from on high has
visited us. There is no longer any danger ofdis
1 union in these United States. The time for that
I has gene by, not to return. And those who sup
1 posed they could sever us, whether by talk of
; secession or by metaphysics, [laughter] "wiil rind
j themselves mistaken. Let the mind of the sober
i American peopie remain sober. The sun st
coarse to satisfy those who meditate disunion is
iust to leave them to themselves, and see what
they can meke of it. Laughter: North and
South there has been some veneration of senti
ment. We tee and feel that we should gain
nothing by beim; separated. For, what should
we be then 1 We should be New-York men,
Ohio men, Rhode Island men. But we know
that it is hi finitely better that we should remain
hand-in-hand, Americans, united cow ana united
for ever ' In un judgment, all opposition is dis?
sipated, and we shall henceforth march forward
together with one heart, under the banner ol one
country'
After the enthusiastic cheering which followed
Mr. Webster's speech had subsided, the President
read another toast, also not on the catalogue, as
follows :
Ctld F.m.Ur. J .1 d l'.e.-y ,i**r:. ?Bound together by a
common language and a common lineage, may tcey b?
This brought oat Sir H ? ?? ? t$ I ?? I et in an elo.
qnent and witty speech. He too had ome some
distance to be present on this occasion, b-cause
he knew that tbey did not exp. ct in him tiie but?
toned up Diplon.atiit, the mere Representative of
the English Government They knew that be
would exrne in the capacity of the Englishman,
open-banded and open-hearted, to teD them of the
sentiments c! his countrymen, lie was 'out a
very slender representative of John Btili. but he
was* an hi nest and true one. Ai d be told them
honestly and frankly that there was no sentiment
in bis lo*cm which did not respond to the Anni?
versar,- here celebrated. This was not merely
beosase the name and language of En-iand
bad b<.en spread by the descendants o: the
New-England Colonists over so great and
so fiourilcmg a Territory . but, also, because
the freedom and iaws which were the glory of
England, were carried with tbem. He had a
National price in these things. The speaker then
dwelt on the ctsembarcarion of the passengers by
the JJaj ficwrr. after which he said that having de?
scribed the Pilgrims .sncixg. :t was now time to
consider the Pilgrims progress. Thisheil,ustxated
by exhibiting the luxurious bill of fore for the
dli r.er. and contrasting it with the tirst dinner of
the i'tlgrtms. a comparison, which drew forth
heartv lsughter. The difference, he said, illus?
trated the advance made in the condition of trie
I ei pie. Then he took up the progress of New
England in population, means of transit, news
papers and literature, exhibiting an intimate ac
quaintnnce with the facts in each case. To Long?
fellow, Ticknor, Sparks, Bancroft, Preseott and
Everett be paid compliments of cha-miag ele?

Marshal Walch, who, with officers Brown, ??
Angeles and another, went to the Pacific Hitel
accompanied by Mr. Parker, about 1 o'clock;
went to the dining-room, saw the man. who ttu
pointed out to them by Parker, called hirn out, u
rested him and immediately brought hiuitotha

apron as when attending table. Mr. Whiteheid,
a gentleman connected in the office with M ma
Jsy and Field, bearing of what hail occurred", tp.
peered in behalf of Long. Mr. Lewis Ttppia
and some other gentlemen also were present.
An immediate examination and dispisa! of the
ens.- was demanded b\ Mr. Parker, and it pro?
ceeded.
Mr. Parker testiiled to being 26 yean of tgS;
resides in Richmond and practices medicine there;
the man Henry, here, belongs to Mr. Smithof

know Henry waa a Slave, except from what he

Air. Whitehead was deiiroui of postponing

timony of a man who is a waiter at the
New-E::e!an.i Hotel, who will prove that he lived
in New-York while he is claimed to have re- j
sided in Richmond. Long, in his affidavit to that
efi'ect, also claimed to be a freeman- Mr. Parker !
was opposed to any delay, and urged immediate
action, as the more summary it was. he said, the
more in accordance w ith the law. He thought
the man might be brought up in 1^ minatei u
well as 15 -lay?. Mr. whitehead urged to the
Commissioner the propriety of gi. tog him at leaf
one hour, or longer, if necessary, to get the a/it
teas. It is a boon granted in the most commoo
case, to say nothing where liberty and life are at
itake. He wished, too, that Messrs. Jay ind
Field, his elder counsel, were here, and that the
ease should be adjoarned till next day.
Mr. Tappan. aiio. suggeated an adjournment till
to-day, but Mr. Parker thought Mr T. bad co right
to isy anything. Thia produced a severe r>'b<ik?
from Mr T. who stated also that he did not think
the Marshal. Mr. Talmadge, a son of Co' Til
macge, who was an aid-decamp to Gen. Wash?
ington, a:-d whom it was kis pleasure to kno#,
would wish to hurry a man claiming to be a free?
man off to Siavc-ry without giving him a chance to
be heard.
The Commissioner was to doubt as to biaposrer
to adjourn the examination, when Mr. T. alluded
to the fact of fudge Grier, to Philadelphia, having
done so, and that adjournment sav ed the man from
going to slavery. , . .
The Commissioner said he was desirous to*)
everything proper in the case, as Mr. Parker tun
Iv sa'id he "waa, and it was concluded to ad/mni
to this forenoon. Mr. Jay then came (in, and the
hour of adjournment was fixed to 10 o clock.
Mr. Tappan asked the Manhai if he would bail
the man. but the Marshal thought he had no power
to do so. and Long was placed in the custody o<
the Marshal to be broueht up aeain this tor.--BCoa.
The examination was held in asmall iuoeroffice
occupied by the Clerk of the U.S. Circuit Court.
A number of persona were present, smocs: wcoai
was Rev Mr Hav. a colored minister, and two or
three ether colored periona. A nomberoi colored
men were to the cuter entry', the door to which
was locked. , . ,. .
The man claimed is a live!y"?*mg black man,
about 30 -.ears of a.-e.
The report above states that the waiter was
called out of Ihe dining room; a gentleman who
saw the arrest ia>s that he was seized and drag?

upon the mode of arrest. there is no limit to the
