The Black Sea. PAKTICTLARS OF THE BOMDABDIIBNT Of ODESSA. Full accounts are now to hand of the bombardment of Odessa. Ab surmised, the affair wss far from decisive, ! being mere destruction without result. The British ac counts report the attacking fore? as the English steam ers Samson, Terrible, Tiger, Retribution, Furious; French steamers Mogador. Vanban 1 escartes, and Caton; also, detachments of Fngllsh rocket boats. The mode of at tack was?the steamers continued for twelve hours to ssll round in a circle of half a mile in diameter, 2.000 yards distant from the batteries, snd each steamer deli vered fire as it passed, the rocket boats continuing to throw twenty-four pound rockets to set the town and shipping on tire. The steamers also threw red-hot shot. The Ru. aians fought with extreme bravery, replying to the fire of the ships. Towaids night, the battery be coming untenable, it- tire became slower, though regu lar; and at length, the shipping in the rear being on fire, it was silenced. J'uring the action, red hot shot from the steniuer Terrible blew up tLe Russian moga zines on the Imperial Mcle, and silence l a formidable bstirry. Three Russian frigates in the harbor took lire and burned to the water's edge, also twelve smaller ships, and two ships of war building. The rockets also set the lower part of the city on lire, and it burned for two days. Three of the attacking' steamers were disabled, and the Vauban wus set on Ore, but it was extinguished. The British estimate their loss at less than twenty killed and wounded. Ibu Rus it ns estimate theirs at twenty killed and sixty wounded. The British Admiral, after the actios, sent a circular to the fleet stating that he had inflicted retribution on the Russiaue for filing on a flag of truce. The Russian accounts look as like the truth as the British. Russia says that on March 27th the British steamer Furious approached Odessa. Two gens, without ball, were bred from the batteries, and the Furious or dered not to approach nearer. The steamer thereupon stopped, and sent s boat ashore with a flag of truce. The best was respected, and allowed to laud at the whsrf, when it was sent back to the Furious with the information that the British Consul had left. Hie Furl ous. however, again got up steam, and approached noar er |.<u if to survey, on which the batteries fired seven shots, not < n the boat with the flag of truce, but on the advancing frigate, which then left. On the 2d April, three of the allied steamers came to Odessa to demand an exploration Geneial Oaten Suc.ktn expressed in writii g b>s surprise that the allied Admirals should imagine that tin- Russian shots were fired at the flag of tin e?exi l ined how nflVre stood, and of course re fusal to deliver up the ?fcip.ang in the harbor, as de manned by tbe Admirals Accordingly the bombard ment took place.

Geo Barrundia, the apodal envoy from the republic of Honduras to the United Slates, has arriied in this city. The announcement in the HlRAUt of the arrival of Gen. Barrundia from Honduras in Mobile, on Ills way to Wash ington . charped with a mission involvinp nothing less than the annexation of that republic to the United States, has created quite a stir here, notwithstanding the all ubeorbing agitation and excitement on the Ne braska quest ion. It is said that the Ministers of France 1 and England hurried breathlessly to the Department of State, to know if such was the fact. They both seem to think that the United States will do precisely what Eng land ami France would be sure to do under the samo cir cumstances, vu.: settle up all little affairs on this side of the Atlantic while Europe is occupied at homo. What ccml'ort these worthy envoys may have obtained from Mr. Murcy, does not appear. But if It is azy consolation to them to know that Sr. Barrundia does not come charged with annexation, they may lay the unetion to thetr souls. His mission is the simple one of opening intimate treaty relations between Honduras and this country: such as shall adequately express the excellent | disposition wblch the people of that republic, the l stronghold of liberal principles, have always entertained ' towards the United States and its institutions. That the rela'lous which are now opened may ripen into a union, is not impossible; but it will only be when the people of both countries shall become convinced that it will tend to their mutual Interests. When this period | anives, as free and sovereign States they are competent to decide wl at rout re of conduct they sliull pursue, with out in any way consulting the wishes or prejudices of alien and foreign powers. The (layton and Bulwer treaty bicds both England and the United States from "acquiring dominion or exer cising soverignty" in Central Am.rica?a provision un constitutional and absurd; for the treaty-making power is cot competent to impose such a restriction on the the country; but, nevertheless, it is one to which the United States has, in good faith, adhered. England, ou the other hard, has not only continued to exercise a qilast dominion over a large part of Central America, but has Asserted and established unqualified dominion over the important islands belonging to Honduras, and cora ms nding the gulf of the same name. 1 refer to the seizure of Huatan and its dependencies, and their organi zation as a colony of (treat Britain, under the denomina tion of the "Bny Islands." Now, if England does not Abandon these islands, and restore them to their rightful owner, the United states will be justified in any act of extension and annexation in those countriea which may bo desired or sought by tlie governments established there And ultimately, I have no doubt the alternative will be presented to Great Britain, in terms equivalent to these:?"Abandon your piratical seizures in Central America, and observe your stipulations with us, or we will at once comply with the wishes of the Central American States, and take them under our protection as integral parts of the United Ftates." If annexation goes on in that quarter, it will be due to English aggression and bad faith, and the Bri tish government will have no one to blame for the result except herself. She is forcing Central America to take refuge in our arms. There are some items of political news from Central America of considerable importance. The State of San Sahador, the people of which are essentially libe ral, ?cro last year betrayed into the reaction ary policy of Cuatomula by a treacherous execulire. An election which has since been held has resulted in a return to her old line of policy, and a restoration of cor diality between her government and that of Honduras. The first result of this change will doubtless bo the re moval < f her present Minister in Washington, Dr. Don Felipe Molina. This will, no doubt, be acceptable to him, as he is already charged with the heavy responsi bilities of Envoy and 1 lenipotentiary from the important States of rosth Rica and Guatemala. The war of Guatemala on Honduras ilocs not prosper. Au invasion wan attempted by a refugee from Honduras (a notorious man, now In Guatemalan service,) named Guardiola, on tho l'lh of April; but It proved a misera ble failure, and Guardiola came near being assassinated by Ida own followers. He fled back to Guatemala on the 23d of the tame month. Vsri us pront.nciamentoe which were to have taken pl.ice in c< i tain parts of Honduras at tho same time wkli the invasion, were equally miser able failures. The result has been to strengthen tho actual government, which confines itself entirely to tho defensive, having long njo accepted, in good faith, the mediation of Nicaragua and Han Salvador. TflK FIRHERY AND RECIPROCITY TREATY VV1TIT THE BRITIsn PROVINCES?rOLICY OF TI1E GOVERNMENT ON TIIE SUBJECT?OPPOSITION OF THE SOUTH, KTJ. We understand that the "projet" of treaty ngreed upon by Mr. Marcy and Mr. Crrrapton. and sent to Eng land some months since, embrsces, not only a settle ment of the Fishery question, but ilso rccipri>cal trade with the British North American Colonies to a limited extent, namely:?AU the natural pro ducts of each country, with the exception of coal, to bacco and sugar. As regards coal, it is understood that article will be inserted, l.umber, broadstuffs, fish and cattle, are to be free of duty. The British government have acquiesced in the jrrnjet, provided the colonics af fected ngree to it also. Newfoundland, it is said, ob jects on the ground that nil the advantages are on the side of Canada, while the I.ower Provinces receive no equivalent forgiving up the fisheries. It wiU bo remembered that upon several occasions a bill for recij rocal trade, simibir to the above provision of the projei of tl.e treaty, failed to receive the aisent of Congress, and, t) ercfote, the idea now is to avoid going 1 efore the representatives of the people, and by a stretch of the executive power accomplish tho measure. The Inst administration declined to encroach upon the legisla te functions of the govcrnm' nt. nnd it was supposed Mr. Pierce would be equally cautious of pursuinga policy wl ich IroUd like a centralization of joscr iu the hauls of the Executive. Son'.l era Senators will probably regard the measure willi s< me . ealousy, and especially the exclusion of their natnisl product.-?-.gar and tobacco. We would not be surprised to find. If the treaty gne? in its p.- - nut form to the Senate, that tho reciprocity portion will ho sirickcn out, upon the ground that In a matter a Tooting the taiitf to ttic full exten' of Vur trnde wi:h the North Amcriinn vi l- nio the popular branch of the govern ment sh< uhl be consultvd. THE ATTITUDE OF SPAIN?V SFl.t'lAL V OMMISRIONFR TO PROCEED TO MADRID?THE NEBRASK A BILE IN THE SENATE.ETC. Al'hoogh nothing definite has transpired a< to the desf atchos just received frem Mr. Soul- . it is known they confirm the ataten ents that the Spanish government has declined to acquiesce in the peremptory demands made tij n tl.rm. unlit at least they can hrar from Cuba. Meantime, it has l>een proposed in the Cabinet, and Mr. Marcy has spoken of it to prominent gentlemen here, to send a special commissioner to Spain to assist Mr. 8onlo in bringing about an amicable settlement of the dlffieul ties if possible. Mr. Pallas, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. nowell Cobb, of Georgia, are spoken of in this counecticn. It is supposed that the positions formerly held by these gentlemen, will add weight to their appointment?the one Vice President and the other Speaker ofthe House. At the same time it is designed to issue a prm-lsmatiou against filibusters, especially directed at the filibuster movement now going on at New Orleans. The rati Male of these proceedings is that they will show the world that the United Hta'ev did not precipi tate matters, and that, if a war must result, Spain will le clearly placed in the wrong. We, of course, cannot say whether the Cabinet will ultimatekr decide upon this course. We merely chronicle the fact that such is their present intention. But will not the cohntry consider it a considerable backing down from the demand* first made npon Spain. Mr Soul, was instructed to make a peremptory demand for Ins'snt se*'?faetlen nn-ler a threat, at all events irn !>? .J IM ml o-i ;o . ...se-'j mtm the urgency of the demand, and send* a special commission, to smooth the matter mr, For the credit of the ymted ptatos we hope the mat tor will not take this humiliating course There is no doubt but that the Senate will acquiesce in the llonse amendment to the Nebraska bill, striking out the Clayton amendment. Some Southern Senators who , roted for the amendment originally will change their Totes, whilst other* ere prepared to change tbem if ne cessary, rather than hasard the bill la any way. It will not go back to the Houae. The rote will probably take place to-morrow. IMPORTANT DECISION IN THK SUPREME COURT?THE NKRKABEA BILL?FETE OF Till BRITISH MINISTER ?THE ECLIFNK, ETC.

Mr. Benjamin, (whig) of La., presented resolutions of the Legislature of Louisiana, on the subject of the Afri canization of Cuba. Mr. Benjamin said he agTeed witli every word In the resolutions. Though not desiring to discuss the subject while it was pending before the committee, he regretted much that the Senator from Delaware had denied the existence of facts going to show the Africanization of Cuba was really the design of the Spanish authorities. When the sebject caino bofore the Senate, he hml no doubt hut he could clearly substantiate the fact that such vns really the intention of Spain. Mr. Ciaytox, (*hlg) of Del , asked if the Senator was to be understood as saying he could exhibit facts showing a present design on the part of Spain to emancipate the slaves in Cuba. Mr. Benjamin said he did not suppose he would be able to make a mathematical demonstration of the fact, but he did expect to present facts sufficient to justify every unprejudiced mind that such a scheme is now in pro gress, and was to he carried into operation at the earliest possible time. Mr. Ci ayton said lie did not think the Senator would be able to substantiate any such thing. Every day's in telligence. snd the moie and more ho considered it, made him believe more strongly that the Spanish go vernment have no designs or desire io lose control over that island. But lie did believe th <t if Spain should find that it was to fall into the hands of any piratical expedition, sent from the United States or elsewhere, the would emancipate the slaves: and she would bo jus tilled on the same grounds that the captain of a vessel would, in seitiug lire to his powder magazine to prevent his ship falling into the hands of a pirate. This Spain had declared long since, and on frequent occasions. If the Senator could only prove this uesign on the part of Spain, ho will prove only what is conceded ; but. lie j (Clayton) utterly denied any faith in the impression j that Spain, under any other circumstance, will do any- | thing by which she will lose the island. Mr Gwi.n, (dcm.) of Cab, said ho knew the fact that j the Spanish authorities threatened, and were determined j in the event of anv revolt or insurrectii n by the people | of Cuba, to emancipate and arm the whole slave joputa tion, for tl.c extermination of the other race. Mr. Benjamin again repeated his surprise that tliedls- ! tinguished and experienced Senator from Delaware should iwrsist in his denial of the slate of facts in Culia, I which had been declared 1o lie correct by several Sena- I lors, who f pole upon reliable information. All knew ' the nature of ihe government in Cuba, and the heavy nnd oppressive laws in lures there. No man on the i island ran keep in hia family a sharp pointed knile. Ail | knew f< mething of the strict espionage maintained by , the authorities over all persons residing there. The do i crtes of the governmt nt emancipating the large number I of slaves now there?of Invitingand holding inducements ! to Afiican apprentices to be brought to the Island, &?: , I &c?whoever will look calmly at all these roots, m.d dispassionately weigh them with the wci) | I nnwn character of the government of the island, I will doubt but that the scheme is now rapidly prngre-a ing to motui ity. The effect of the late decree of regis- | tration was a stiong evidence of it. For years slates I have been translerrred from owner to owner by parol i sales. The recent decree declares and makes absolutely free all slaies when owners cannot produce a title tio tbem by some registered deed or pir chase. This act I alone will set free nearly one-fourth of the slave-son the island. Another decree baa emancipated all those who have been found on the island, and not contained in for mer acts of registration. Thus already have been eman cipated a large body of blaeks, who, "with arms in their hands, will prove strong auxiliaries to th? Spanish troops in keeping the population of the i-lsni in subjection. He thought that after the report of the committee the Senate could be satisfie d that these resolutions set forth no idle speculation or imaginative idea. Messrs. DoCGUr and Hi'nter begged that the disens shid proceed no further, but that the resolutions be now referred. 1 Mr. LTayto:* mid that when a Senator as distinguished ua tlio one just sal dow n uttered atntruientH with such confidence in the Senate, tt-ey would make (treat impres sions en the country, and he (riavton, would not be dis charging his duty If he allowed tfiem to go out without aneOort to nrreat at occe the alarming elfectthoy would naturally produce. He was not nor bad he ever boon insensible to the optire "ions and wrongs undsr which the j to] le of Cuha had long continue*!. At the proper time and in the proper manner, he woald ho na ready aa any one to sympathize with and nlleriato their condi tion. He again repeated, that he did not believe it pos sible for the Senator to substantiate the idea that the Spanish government now had in contemplation any scheme of emancipation of the slaves of Cuba. Ho could not bring his mind to any such conclusion. It was the duty of those at the < ther end of the avenue to nt'end to this alTair, and he did not doubt hut they would do so. They who were presumed to know all the facts upon this subject, as far as they conld he known, would have a fearful roapoosibllity noon them if they allowed this opinion thus tent forth from the Senate by the Senators, to go forth to the country uncorrected. Jle did not know what was the opinion of the Secretary of State as to the existence of anv design of emancipntion in Cuba, but be would risk the decision of the lasue between him and the Senator trr.nt Ix>uiaiann. on the opinion of the Mcrctiuy of State. lie did not think that the Sec retary believed Spain bad any i lea of Africanizing Cuba. However, fo get nil the State department knew on the subject, the Committee on foreign it evolutions had sub mittcd the resolution ndopted yesterday, calling for the information. He did not understand" as -the Sonator seemed to. that any great number of slaves have bcejn declared free under the reeent decree of Cuban the an. tberitics. Net over 5,000 had been made fr.-e during the Inst fourteen months?no such number as hundreds of thousands, hod been emancipated. He thought he had | shown to the sati-faction of the Sanate that to prevent 1 the introductien of Africans into Cuba, it was only ne cessary to prevent our own people from eugaging | in the burir'M under our own Hag, in Amerioau vi an Is. The Inst way to stop it was to take away trim our own ?amen the privileges under whbh I they do, and may carry on the trade. There it was that 1 lie proposed to strike, and there it was that Congress ) hml frill iov,?r, and ought to strike, lhe authorities of Cuba had only .'iclarfd tree those Africans who had been brought flare in American vessels, notoriously slave I tracers, in violation of treaties 1!" ridiculed the idea of the e barharioua Africans being converted Into Spanish troops He roi eatr d hi* -'cnial of any belief of any in Kntl< n by S(ain to < mandate rUves. and said be wcnld willingly submit tho fact to Secretary Mercy's opinion. Mr ,-Kw van. (free sod) of N . Y?When this subject was introduci d to the Senate, two or thre?? we?ks since, by the S niit< t from Louisiana, (Mr Midell,) 1 thought a vciy general desire was manifest* 1 by all | ai lies to have it referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations, un embarrassed by a dlsenasion prevlotts to Its reference, though tbe cmsent given to the r<feren e without pro test would e nvey the idea that the Senate generally admitted there was grave route ft>r such an inuuiry. But since that time other resolutions of Inquiry have hern introduced upon the subject, anl hive lei to more or Ices rtr bate, and to day '.he rcn lotion* of the State of Louisiana l ave le?n presented to tr< 1 certainly agree with the Senator from Louisiana. (Mr. Ilenjamln,) that the most appropriate time to discuss the matter will he when the committee shall have made a report. The dlscuaaion of this subject bv thosa who entertain apprehensions for the peace of the country, going out from Ihis place w ithni.t .pp. -iron i\r.p: so far as It was made by the Pcnator from Delaware, Is calculated to produce vcrv serous etfects. If produces alarm in mercantile circles, certainly premature and unnecessary new, own if it he not without sufficient cause. There is no necessity for Senators to give way to their imagina tiona until the grounds for their fears have been ex hibited by tho Committee on For. ign Relatione on the Fveontlvo authority For one, whenever a crisis in Cuba may come, I shall 1>* prepared to meet It, bat it is imp. ssible for me to see that circumstance* alluded to by the Penntnr from Isrulsiana form any ground for apprehending that a crisis Is at hand. 1 do nol now look merely at the facts relied upon by the Senator from I/rnisisna, hut 1 look at the condition of Spain, at tbe condition pf the l:nitc<l States, and of Kuro pean nations, and 1 see nothing to warrant any such apprehension For ourselves, we have a claim unset tled against Spain, and we are expecting the answer of the Spanish govwnment tc that elalra. We are sxpecti ing the arrival of an offirer prepared to treat on that subject, and on all subject* whatever. Why should Spain, deriving a million of dollar* income from Cuba, desire to renounce it f Why should eke bury in the ocean almost the last relic of the New World given to her t r r rIter , tgrnrle* xre as great row a* In t ?- ?... litkm li *;v;-,\1 .Ul i V ertunent is conmrwed^ ffcis I outer >ain no uouui toot If Great Britain oeeupi** In/ position in regard to thU question ooir, it is a position which inclines her to pevr*nt the extremities which are dreaded by the Seuatora from Louisiana. En gaged in a war which ie almost certain to become a con tinental war in Europe, which in to be a short war only in the case that Auatria an J Prussia abalt join their standards to thoaeot Great Britain and France,and which in to be an interminable war, a ruinoua and disastrous war in the other event; it eeema to me that Great Britain ia now under bonds to keep the peace with our govern pent on this question. 1 see no reason, therefore, to impair the confidence of the committee and spread over them a dread of evil# which may never oome. I hope then that tliir question may rest In tranquillity for the present. It strikes me that it is calculated to produoe apprehensions in this country in relation to our claims od f pain. on Europe, and 011 the nations of the world, for we know, and the nations know, that thia la regarded by some us the favored time to atrlke at the interest of fqnlu in Cuba, and at the interests of Great Britain. If thisquesticn (a one of the rising of the inhabitants of Cuba to assert the lr liberty, that is one thing; I shall de sire to know of the Committee on Foreign Relations,when they report on this subject, on what ground and to what extent they propose to intervene, if tbey propose to exert the influence of this country as it has heretofore been exerted In favor of efforts for constitutional free d(in, that will be one question; but if they purpose to control or supervise the local matters of Cuba, then, for one. 1 an decidedly against any such intervention. I have no doubt that the general popular sentiment, and I any action that may bs ndopte 1 on this subject,will turn u) on Ifae question whether what is proposed is a simple influence felt, and necessary, and justly excited in tavor of freedom, or an sttem pled regulation and control of the good of Spain In Cuba, in its lawful exercise of a right to meliorate the condition of lti people. The reaolutiona were referred. Tim NEBRASKA mil. Was taken np, and read the second time. Mr. Doi oiab said the bill was the same as passed the 1 Se nate, except that it contained that provision which hsd twi n stricken out on motion of Mr. Clayton. He hoped I ab the bill was understood, the Senate would now vote j on it. Mr Pearce, (whig) of Md.. moved to strike oat ; the provision allowing foreigners who may hare 1 declared their in'ention to become citi/.ens, to vote nnd hold ofllros in the Territories. lie said the He I nale had voted this amendment upon the Senate I bill. Tin- tearon of it was, to confine the right of | suffrage to American citizens, native and naturalized. The right of suffrage waa one peculiarly belonging to the character of the cilizena and none other. It controllud the interest of the country, and it ought to be exotciso t by citizens only He knew that practice, government in particular, had been irregular In the case of the North western Territory, citizenship was not required; but at that time there was no federal union, no constitution, no such thing ns citizens of too United States. There was then 1 nly citizens of respective States of the con federation. It was right, therefore, for them to give the right of voting to residents. It was coupled, how ev. r wi?h a condition of two yonrs residence, and free hold qualifications. The same privilege was extended to the Southwest Territory, anc afterwards to the Ter ritory of Mississippi. In 1808, Congress confined the right of suffrage in tho Mississippi Territory to citizens of the United States, who were property holders. The right of suffrage was confined to citizens in the Terri'ories of Missouri, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Iowa, Utah, and New Mexico. A different course was adopted in Oregon, Washington, and Minnesota. In these three last eases, however, the subject seemed to have attracted no atten tion, ana they ought not to bo considered as precedents. By the trims of the bill, aliens may vote immediately upon <?< wing into the Territory, while officer.-, JM. of tlie army and navy who may be there are not allowed to vote. Mr. Wai.kkr, (dem.) of Wis?The MB provides thit persons in the army or navy, having residences elsewhei e, shall not have the right to vote in the Territory fiom the fact of being stationed there. Mr. 1'kakce said the bill repealed the Missouri restric tion, and conferred upon the jieople of the Territory the right to settle 1 he question of slavery themselves. This bill gives to aliens just arrived in the country the right to vote on and determine the question which Congress, unable to settle, has. as a last resort, turned open to the people of the Territories. He was unwilling to let any tire hut citizens of the United States hivo the right to vote on this or any other question. Mr. Prouhfad, (dem ) of P*., said this was the same bill as passed the henate, with an important provision in it which the Senate had stricken out. It authorized un naturalized foreigners to vote and hold offices. It was dirrctly opposed to the practice of government. It ap pealed in effect llie naturalization laws, in existence since If 02, so fur as Nebraska territory is concerned. Mr. Mai-on, (dem ) of Va.?Not at all Mr. Broiiiik-vd said he found tho bill properly de nounced in the Union, for containing this amendment. This bill is in spirit a violation of the constitution of the United States, nnd of all good and sound )?>licy. lie had voted for ihe Clayton amendment to the Senate bill, and was the only Nor'thorn Senator who had so voted. The constitution declared expressly that naturalization laws must he uniform. Tboro cannot be one law for tho Stales anil another for the territo ries. This amendment would bo to extend natu ralization laws over Nebraska; for that reason he had voted for it, and would do so now. He quoted all the precedentsa of territorial governments, and gave the histoiy of naturalization. Ho said that foreigners did not themselves desire ibis privilege. The Irish aud Ge rman emigrant, who come hither for a home and pro tection. was willing to wait for the five years proscribed by law for the right of suffrage. Congress seemed to 1 rvo b?crime inrspablc of legislating upon slavery or nesttona 1 pi lainmg to foreigners. They seemed to be ) 1 '1 Bed ?u the one hand by abolitionists, and on the ifcer by those who sought to ufo foreign influence to pii nm'e their ow n ends?their own ends over the-extent e.r telling I' e.i t for gain. Whata scene was beheld daring lie last 1 residential elect ion I That old chief, who liad line--dully braved the pieril" of battle fields on tho nor he-rn frontier, 1 nd who in triumphant glory had carried ur l ag to the bails of Montezuma, went about the ountiy speaking of the- rich Irish brogue anil the sweet Get man accent Whs t a humiliating spectacle. lie hsd txenslenypu firm friend Of the rights of ns.turaliz.od itizena, nnd oppured to assaults npon them liv tho Na tive American party; but he did not believe foreigners asked this right, aud he hoped the amendment would revall. Mr. Toombs, (whig) of fia., said the error of the Senator, consisted in confounding naturalization, aud the right of suffrage. Naturalization mado no man a vote. The right of voting in regulated by State authority alone. The right to vote makes no man a citizen. After the re volution, for y-ars. not over one third of the free white male citizens did not enjoy the right to vote, for property qualification existed in most of thp Stales. The right of voting In territoriea had not for the first forty years been confined to cit'zena. and since that time practice has been variable. The Senate had put this provision out of its bill. The House bad put it in; but contained assertions of gieat principles, the aloption of which ought not to be endangered by this outside isatie. which involved no constitutional question. Though in favor of the amendment itself, he thought the friends of the bill ought to yield iu this case to the House. These foreigners were on our ahores. It was no time new to discuss the propriety of adopting them. As they were here, he was lor Americanizing them by the moat speedy method. Mr. ATCnnoM, (dim.) of Mo., said be had voted for this amendment before, and he believed it to be right. He did not believe any one should vote or bold office but citizens of the United States; but it I wo.--not a constitutional difficulty?and as the bill con tained other and higher principles he was willing to aliandoii the amendment. He wonld vote for this bill if it had a thousand other obnoxious features, because it repeals the infamous restriction placed on tno territory by Congress of 1820. When that great deed was done then would the Mouth have accomplished the repeal of that great wrong, against which it had struggled for thirty years. This amendment was of no practical im portnnce to the South. Foreigners were not pioneers in emigration; tbey remained in cities and villnger, and followed in the footstep* of pioneers. Foreigners were not generally agriculturists: they were mechanics, la borers and traders, lie bad been charged by abolition paiiers in Missouri with having been the author of this amendment, and with liming used the Senator from Ittlaware as a tool to offer it. He denied having had any knowledge of the amendment until it was offered. Mi.CutvTOK said he oiTi red the amendment witnout having liad any consultation with the Menator: and he had had no conversation with him on the aubject until after it had been disposed of. Mr. Wat Kf R made argument to show Congress had no power over right of suffrage of peoi lo of the .-'tatcs. Mr. 1 mrr, (item.) of In., opposed tho amendment. He rfgretted that it had tieen offered. If put into the bill, nil the ticuble. anxiety, labor, and so forth, of this ses sion would prove to hayc hern In vain. The hill. If sent hack to the Hoi se, might be defeated, an.l it might not be possible spa in, tor years to conic, to get into Congress a In dy of men who would settle this question of slavery a ? tl is lilil prop, n d to do. 1 ofeat this bill and let the ? ul ji c t go la k to the people, and the cauldron of agita tion would .-gain become heated, and Imil for years.

South of 8A 30 (.ho piojle of the"South could have slavery or not as they pleased. North of it the free people are denied the privHi ge accorded to tbeir brethren at the South. Th amendment was wrong, because it a'tei >v8 to ? thst certain residents of the count ; shoo I.', n t ve the right to vote. Cong-ess had n> | ? var t- n . iv therkhi of voting; each 3t.ito reg.-lit . the' r.,r rstlf, and the rule was various in the several Matr ii; .i assured hy honest old Cave Johnson, of Tennessee, that the first time that gentleman rarao to Congress he was elected by free negro votes. Free negroes were then alb wed'o vote in Tennessee, and Johnson was an Iron matter, having in his employ a large number of free negiors, 144 of whom voted for him and s-nt him to Congress. He believed women at one time voted in Now Jersey Mr. Caps?Ftrong minded women Mr rrrtTT?Ptrcng or weak minded women, they, ne vertheless voted in that State at onetime. He si oke some time longer in opposition to the amendment. Mr. Rrrt nr.

He woold vote for the bill Mr. Bt'lLKH, (dem 1 otH. C? argued in favor of the amendment; hot sain he would vote for the bill whether it was sdop.ted or not. Mr. I'mrr (whig) cf Md . said he voted for the amend ment before aud thought Its mover would have voted for the bill, which, however, he hod not done. He did not feel authorized to vote now for an amendment, which would give no strength to the bill, and would hazard its passage in the House. Mr. Hrtvntn.

Inanaaer to hie queations, Mesara. Hunter, Sutler, Badger. To< mhs, Peltit ami I'ratt responded, Baying the repeal of the Missouri restrictions Mr Ban continued, that repeal of the Miaeouri Com promise amouuted to no concession to those Southern men who bad always contended it waa unconstitutional, because it repeals nothing that in their opioion waa bind ing. It Would not restore quiet or peace. It had already alarmed and excited the whole country, particularly the North: and ita effects were yet to be seen. Mr. Tcx nr? said?If the Senator had defenJed his own course, which grea'ly needed defence, ami had not ar raigned that of others, he (Toombs) wo aid have aaid no thing. The friends of this bill ask no advice of the ? Senator aun desired none from him. The Senator had complained that he could not understand the great prin ciple contained in this bill, which induced Southern . Senators to aupport it. That principle was contained in i the amendment of the Senator from IUluoU to the Senate bill, repealing the Missouri cxnpro | miss, and clearing this question for Congresalona action. For tnat provision contained In that great prin ciple. the senator from Tennessee had voted and was res- > pousible. The senator tnroughent had acted with its I friends, had attended all meetings and deliberations of its friends. The senator was present at a meeting of I whig Fcnstors. at which the resolution wasadop'ed re monstratlrg with the whig organ in this city for opposi tion to this bill. The senator did not object to a resolu tion of the whig friends of the bill. The senator took a part in sll meetings of the friends of the bill, and waa understood to nulte with other whig sena tors, authorizing Badger to state, as he had done, that on the principle of the bill Southern whigs were united. If the bill contains any wrong, any Injus tice, any iiijurv to the South b_v repealing the Missouri compromise, then the Senator is responsible for It, for he voted to pnt that provision in the bill. The Senator aided what great principle was contained in the repeal of the Missouri restriction ? for if it was unconstitutional it required no repeal. The constitution throws a quad ruple guard around legislation. Senators, Representa tives, the Executive and the Judiciary were sworn to support the constitution. Each branch had to decide for Itself on the constitutionality of its acta. If all consti tutional questions were to lie left to the Judiciary, why, need Cot green or the Executive trouble themselves about the constitution at ali. To ask him to repeal an uncon stitutional law, waa to ask him to do teat which he , could not resist, though the law was eminen'ly wise and just In itself. Eor that reason he had cheerfully voted for the iepeal of the Missouri act. There were those at the North who lived by agitation, and the Senator wvs now hailed by them with rejoicing, as an ally and co laborer in the work of prolonging ugitation, by defeating this bill. Mr. Bm. spoke for nearly an hour In reply, but tad not, he said, more than fairly commenced what he had to say. He explained that a- regards the resolution adopted to remonstrate with the editors of the National Intelliptncer on Its opposition to this bill l.e was present at th t ni<cling, but merely stood within ibo dour with liis hut in Li.-hand, and never until recast!/ suspected that it was intent eo as a serious proposition The same metier Lao Men mentioned in the in.use by Mr Church well, who had read a certified copy of the min utes of the meeting, by which it was stated he was chairman of the committee appointed to wait on the AoittfioZ Jntetligenicr. This was wholly incorrect. As to the other meeting at whicn it was stated the Sena | tor from North Carolina was authorised to sU'e all Southern whig Senators agreed on the bill, he did nut consent to any snrh statement. Mr. Badger said that at the meeting of tho whig Sena tors, it was suggested that he should Rtate tlicv were t.nited in the support of all that he asked, if he should state the fact in his speech, and was answered in the af firmative. He did so. and at the time thought he was as much authorized to nay the Senator from Tennessee was in favor of the hill as that he (Badger) was. Mr Dili said it was ull a mistake. Mr. ClAYTON said he could explain the matter. It was agieed that the Senator from North Carolina should state that all the Southern whig Senators were in favor of the ie| eal of the Missouri restriction. Mr Beil interrupted?claiming the floor, and saying to Mr. Clayton, if you go on, I will instead of getting out of ore quarrel get into another with you. lie then said he was not present at any meeting, in which any body wnsauthoiized to say the Southern whig Senators were in favor of the bill. He repeated this over several times, and at 5 o'clock yielded the floor, and the Senate adjourned. Ilonsr of ItrprcaentnUvea. WAsiliiiOTdN, May 24, 1854. Tho House resolved itself into Committee of the Whole on the State of the I'nion, on ran pacific RAILROAD. The consideration of the speciul order?1he Pacific Railroad hill?was postponed till to morrow and tho com mittee took up TO] DEFICIENCY MIX. The committee resumed the consideration of the Senate amendment appropriatiig half a million dollars for the construction of works to supply Washington and George town with water. Mr. IIavek, (whig) of X. Y., said, that if the commit tee got afloat again on this water, they would hardly touch bottom to day, and appealed to the gentlemen to vote. The amendment was disagreed to. The Senate amendment appropriating $75,000 to huil-l a bridge over the Little Kalis of the Potomac, was de bated. Mr. Fr.irNTOX, (dcm.)ofKy., said the bridge which recently fell there, killing one man and breaking the head of another, was built of rotten iron, with holes in it so big as his fist, plugged with lead and painted to hide defects. Ho offered a proviso to place the construc tion of the new brir.ge under rami ete.it civil engineers. With this a Initio),al amendment, the amendment was concurred in. Hatingactad on several other amen- nts, Mr. Wai.hi. (dera.) of N. Y., moved the committee rise; there evidently was not a quorum without drum ming up. and be-idos. there a vie provisions in the bill which on) lit not to pass. The committee refused to rise. Shortly after, it being difficult to keep a quorum, owing to tho proceedings on the Nebraska bill in the Senate, the committee rose and the House adjourned. Free Democratic Conventions In Pennsyl vania. PnT8Hru?, May 24, 1854. The free democratic cousty convention met to day, and appointed delegates to the State convention, but adjourned without nominating a county ticket. They are to again assemble upon the call of the county com mittee The free democratic. State Convection also assembled to day: about forty delegates were present. E. D.

Stephenson, of Mercer, for Supreme Judge. The convention adjourned until this evening. Presbyterian General Assembly?Old School. Buffalo, May 24, 1854. Since our last report the Assembly has been mainly employed in considering a judicial case, involving the right of the church to strike from its lists elders refus ing to have their children baptised. The argument was not concluded when the hour arrived for hearing the report of the Board of Publication. The board have circulated ?8.000 broks end 90,000 tracts during the year. The value of the books distributed was 8130,000. The receipts bad increased over the previous year 812. 000 The balance in the treasury on the 1st of April was 818.000. This large balance was explained by the hoard. Tho Board of Domestic Missions reported in fa vor of building a church at Washington, on a li!>orsl scale, and recommended a collection of from 850,000 to 8100,000. Adopted. Tho report regarding the Danvillo Seminary then csme up. when a warm personal debate commenced. Dr. McMasltr, of Va., attacked bitterly the action of the committee of the last General Assembly, charging that they lind improperly suppressed information bofnro them, and induced the Assembly to adopt a report which 1 otherwise would not have been adopted The fight is I bet vein the lbinville and New Albany seminaries Dr. BrerkcnricJge opposes, and a warm time is anticipated.
