THE CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS Ovci throw of the National Resolutions ? Adoption of ? Kew Plaulc in the Platform of tlie Democratic Party. The Democratic Congressional or Cabinet Caucus was beld in Washington on Saturday night. After its organization the following resolutions were intro duced by Mr. Stanton, of Tennessee: ? 1. Resolved, That the platform of the Democratic Na tional Convention of 186:1 not only reaffirmed the past policy of the tlemocra'ic partT, hut in resolving to "abide by and adhere to a faithful execution of the act* known as the Compromise acts including the fugitive slave law," did, in the ?rost solemn maimer, and under oir cumstarces of urgent necessity. give n renewed pledge of fidelity to the constitution aud ail its compromises, as the orly t-ecure hints of union and harmony, 2. Resolved. That the nomination ai.O-election of Frank lin Pierce to the Presidency were mainly the consequence of a univercal belief, derived from his pust liiHory and po litienl rm.o ia lions, th*the?oulu fultil the pledge thus given for the party in every way which the measures in vohed could be atrangtheued iu thoir mural force as well an in their legal authority. 2. RuBolved, That the inaugural addren of General Pierce was in perfect conformity with that profound national neiit a. mt which secured his triumphant emotion, and gave the ooti ntry good reason to eipect that both hie measures and leading appointment* would be consistent with the sound and patriotic sentiments therein avo.ved. 4 Resolved, That, in the language of General Pierce, " if the men o the North who have < tood by the consli tut ional rights of the South are to be ab*n Jone l to any time n?rvin?[ policy, the hope of the dernojrscy and of the Union mus'. sink together." ami that in the judgment of this caucus a policy wbioh would tocoguoe abolicionism or free soilinn as an element of the democatto organiza tion. and elevate leading tree soilers at tie -aorifictt of men at the North and at the South, whosn lives hare proved their Bcelity to the constitution, would not only be ittcon nirtent wilii the sentiment expressed by Gnneral Pierce iitfoie his nomination, as above quoted, bat would be utterly repugnant to the principles! and pledgee which prevailed with th j people in bringing the administration into power 6.

Now, almost every man in the country kncirs the fact that Mr. Kennedy framed the schedules, substantially, upf n which the ceruus was ordered by Congts**; that the return ? of the Marihal* were rendered over Into his hands as the head of the bureau, and that from 1850 to 18 S3 he war absorbed in tho work that the work was substanti ally completed when Mr. De Bow came into the cfllon, ap pointed by General Pierce, and that ths changes made by Mr. He Bow In the arrangement of the statl'tlcs hare sddeii i otbinpr to their value or their perspicuity.

Befot* this ranches you, tbe f(u?s',lon of the Speaker ship and the Cli-rkship will, most likt-ly, be decided. All is In doubt aboat tbe Speakership, but the prevalent Im pression tbis morning is that i'< rney will be Clerk by aaucus e'ecree. 11 is a rule that all who go Into caucus are bound by Its proceedings while they stay In. Ht?nce, ??bile s'me of the New York national democrats are lumlous to be present to put In tho-e resolutions, they do not w'.?b to be bound by the nomination of Forney, which isespected. Wn?n that question ocm*s op, therefore, ttey will probably leave, and I hear that certain high toi.ed Vlrg'nians will do the same thing. There is a st.c.ng under current of opinion running dead aprainst Frrney, but msny members are pledged, f.thsrs are fear ful o' offence to the r'aMuet, and most of them Icep their own counsels. Some tup pose that the vote will lav jive an Issue b< tween the Hbkaui and th? administration, and ;t is upon th?t issue that his friends are so confident of his re election. Were there no mucus he might be de feated; but as his nomination in caucus Involves the mi? pert in the House even of those voting against him in ranens, the caucus will probably save bim. Aineng the New Ymkere in town, as 1 learn, are John [ c, M?ywr, mmi v. et?7i wm* Connolly. County Clerk, Gro. HUr'er, who feel a lively Interest U> the position which CoBgre'* it bound to take on the New York question. John V*n Buren aud his branch of the partj judiciously keep off. They are in*g nanlmous ? they seek to throw oil upon the waters ? thev want harmony, you know and hnnoe they avoid all cause of exasperation ?* far ax possible. The lust depar ture of John from Wa'dilcgton was a sort of Hejira; but whether he will evor return again in triumph, like the 1'ropbet. is the very quentten In hand. W H. Sewaid is also in town, in high feather. It is really said that he eu4orde* the latest Interpretation of tie Baltimore platform by the Washington Union ?that it Is the true definition. Whether he will or will not confirm this position, by adhering to the Cabinet in the Senate, is a nice problem. He Is a slippery customer, and cunning ax Martin Van Buren himself ; and the harmony which he wl!l be most apt to sas'aln, is the harmony of demosratib wrargliug and agitation. Gen. Cass in expected to night? anxiously expsoted by his New York friends. It Is Haid that he has written no letters to anybody here for mmetime past on publffl affairs Very likely. But the administration, for leasons which they consider good and valid, count upon his support. What will he do ? lie roust do something; an<* if he takes bold ground apainst the Cabinet, the Cabinet may do some thing. Therefore, his friends here, especially his New York friends single handed, have been fighting his battles <or htm. It is to be hoped that be will boldly and emphatically ?efine his position, and Immortalise himeelt thereby." He must speak soou, or his buckwheat cakes will get cold. The national democrats are for hurrying up the cakes. Generals Husk end Houston, of TexaB, are confidently counted upon by the national democrat*. They are bota considered ac.ong the available* for the next Presidency. We are on the threshold of the business of that cam paign. It will be shaped out, perhaps, by this very res sion of Congress. New York is worth liokiug altar Tae national)- expect to have tie .Stare by 1850. It has somn weight in the Presidential vote ? New York, in fact, de ci 'ed the election of Polk aud Taylor at the polls, and of ' moFt of ibe other Presidents in convention, It is this very thing which gives i nch peculiar puogoncy to the Syracuse split atd tr,e Bronp< n and Guthrie Hquabb e. It is a nice bu'lnt as to throw New York overboard, and Pre sidtntlal asplrunts aud tie little oliqtMH. aroun \ them feel the force of this fact prodigiously, wfcl'e they al-io fuel the delicacy of trami log on the to?s of the President There ia a beautiful job of work before us, not unite so Urge, but quite a* perplexing aa the war bat ween Russia and Turkev.

As for the wbigi, they are pretty much in the position of Austria? they can't more because there is no adhe moo nmorg thetu at a distinct power ? they want to stay neutral. In othe words, the old heads of tie party here say that there is no longer any whig party ?

The natural tondenoy of the Southern whigs Is to a junction with the democratic nationals, and the suma calculat on will apply to the New York and other Northern natloal whlgs On the other hand the drift of the Van Buren free sorters is back agniu to the pariy of the BulTalt platform; and the great object is to cavo the administration from this ultimatum To do this some are disposed to drive Gen. Pierce headlor g to terms, or to a hand to band tight ftr life or death. Others, more prudent, are for a gentlt course. They ?i* for dealing with Gen. Pierce as a men of honor and of pride. They do not wish to wouod his renpibiiitles; but to convince his judgment? not to ccerce ".Jim, but to satisfy him of the true polity of the gnvemment cor tided to hU direction. The majority of the House are this way inclined, and the free sutlers ex pect a very great Influence In behalf of the mildest course from the measures and doctrines of the message. The campaign opens to night in oauous. M. TSE LATEST FROM WASHING TON'. TELEGRAPHIC. Era XAL CORRKHmNHKNtli OK THK NEW YORK HERALD. THE CiUCra ? TUB WATtlT WAS MANAGED? TIBS ATIS" FACTION ?

After nearly six years miserable slavery ia a British penal colony, the affectionate welcome yeu offer me on my arrival within this asylum and sanetuary of the tartb, cannot be otherwise than affecting to me. Tha leasure it gives me is mingled indeed with pain and umiliation; for the name of Irish confederates whlafc you fonclv perpetuate inyirur club of exiles, is associated. Heaven knows, with no glorious memories. With all tha bii'h enthusiasm and devotion of '4S ? with all oar slab*, committees and organizttions ? with nil t*>e fierv eloquenoe that warmed and thrilled us. and the loud deflane** that rtartled the British empire iaits imperial pride of pleoat the fact remains, glosi it over as we may, we wet* ntterly, easily, ana ignomlniously defeated ? our uaUve laad is half depopulated and the highest head amongst us is growing grey io the fori hi gaol of Van Dlamana I-aaJ Three are dreary reflections and quite sufficient to make us all seriously and anxi<<u?ly search out tha erases of that miserable defeat, in order that we may not orce more ;ive our mortal enemies so complete a triumph, and rur count? ? so sore a fceart: for our cause, my firivuds, is not linally lost, if there be yet justiee la H(*aven. Accept my heartfelt thanks for the oarsaoal kindness which pervadee your adrresa, and give me credit for tbe deepest sympathy with r.lt the hoj es and asplflb tiens which it breathes With fraternal ro:pect aud re gard, I remain your faithful friend, Bp.ooKt.vs, l)ec. iJ 1863.
