We inadvertently stated yesterday that it wis behoved tbe fishery and reciprocity treaty would nut he wot to the Senate this session. We meant woul.t not bo report ed. It has been laid before tbe Senate, but It is not tha present intention of the committee to report it back im mediately, if this session. Mr. McDouf all's bill for an increase of the mall com munication with California wan killed to-day, without an effort. As amended it sought to sustain and increase the Aspinwall monopoly. Mr. Sumner's sophistry was exposed to day by Sena tor Butler. The debate throughout ms very ably con ducted. An evening paper attempts to quibble about our state ment a week ago that Judge Douglas could not sunceed in getting a petty appointment for a political friend under the Nebraska bill. We reiterate in precise terms the fact then stated. Aa to how Judge Douglas Tiews the matter we neither known or caie. Wo presume he has ioi? much good sense to allow any act of the present administration to annoy him. In consequenoe of pressing California business Mr La tham will not be able to address the democracy in Tam many Hall on the Fourth. Hon. Gilbert Dean will accept the Judgeship. Congress will loee in Mr. Dean one of its most energetic and ta lented yon tig members. It 1* believed, now that tbe Ten Million bill has been disposed of, that the House will devote the morning hour of eueh day to the reports of oominittee* .'^o far this session but two committees besides the stand ng committees have had an opportunity of reporting. THIRTY-THIRD CONGRESS. FIRST 8K8SI0N. Senate. Washington, Jane 28, 1851. MORE EXPLANATIONS. Mr. Pbtitt, (dem.) of Ind., said that on Monday, in de rate, he had referred to Mr. Sumner'* open fllsavowal of bu obligation to the Constitution, and to his oath to sap port it, in no very complimentary terms. In tbe official report of that debate, that Senator was represented as Tiaving said as follows:?"I said, I recognise no obligation in the Constitution to bind mo to heip to reduce a man to slavery." These words, said Mr. Petit, were not made in the Senaip. If the Senator had said them they would have been false, and I would have noticed them. Mr. Scmnhk. (free soil) of Wans ?I call the Senator t > ?order. I say tliey were uttered by mo here in the Sen-ite Mr. Puni?I will prove right In his teeth that what h<s <uys is false. (Cries of ?' Order, ordor.") I say he did not make use or the remarks here roported on the floor, tiut after the u'l'ouroment he went to the reporter and had them interpolated into the report of my remarks He then argued that the Senator never had the floor t nuke any such remarks, and if it was made privately and not heard by Senators, it ought not to go into the re port. It was unfair in any Sons tor to interpolate re marts into reports which were nut actually made. HI* speech new contained this remark, and no reply to It ap peared from him. He maile n-j reply to it because tho remark was never made. He di scussed the rights of Sen ators to revise their remarks. He said that when proof sheets of bis speech handed he saw this interpolation, and pronounced It false, and directed it to be left out. The for%riHi' of the Globe offlco, however, had put it in. He read a letter from the reportor of tho Qlabe to the effeot that this letnark did not appear in the shoit hand notes of Monday's debate, but that when Mr. Sumner called to revi his remarks he had put the report in the shape it now u pears. The Senator had said in answer to ? remark, that he wonld not execute the constitution, that he rt cognise 1 no such obligation. The Senator sai<t -that he would not return as fugitive slave, and asked, " Is thy servant a dog that ho should do this thing.'' Hie man who first used that remark was a fitting person for the Senator to quote He hwl proved himself a lying ingrate, a dog. He was a happy prototype of the Senator from Massachusetts in all his couduct. The interpolation by the Senati r was fal?e, because he could not have said it, and false because he did not say it. Mr. Sumner?I repeat that thr remarks were made by me substantially as reoorted. I made them in my seat, and did not snp'po.;o they would have reached the re porters ear. He then explained that the reporter volun tarily showed him the report, and finding It did not cor respond enact ly with what he had said, corrected it. As to all else which llie Senator had said, he had not one *rord to reply. Ihe subject, which had consumed an hour, then ?dropped. LAN1>8 FOB MINNESOTA. The House bill to aid Minnesota in constructing a rail road therein, was tuken up and passed. The motion to refer the Boston petition for the repeal of the Fugitive hiave law, was then taken up. THBFl'OmVK SLAVE LAwj Mr. Dix, (wlvg.) spoke for an hour in defence of the Fugitive Wave law, denouncing opposition to it. Ho also declared the whig party of the North had become abolitionists as a party, and t enounced any political connection with them* while they remained so. He re ferred to the platform of the Whig State Convention of New Hampshire, and said if tho tests laid down in that body were to be made hy Northern whigs, he desired to be fore ver disconnected with them. An effort was then made to postpone the subject until "Monday, but, after considerable debate, was voted down. Mr. Maiiorv defended the Fugitive Slave law, and in "the eoureo of his remarks referred to Mr. Sumner's dif Avowal of any obligation Imposed by his oath to support the constitution. Mr. Scmnkb?I call the Senator to order. I never said so. Mr. Mallort said he would not even put into a (log's south any statement which was not true, but he woui'l be glad to knon what the htnalor did say. Mr. ScM5vw.?I said I recognized no obligation \ non me to help to return or reduce to slavery any man. Mr. Clai Laid he could not keop silent and hour vho Pfr>ator, will. insolence of manner and unMiiahiiii; faoo, deny, after having unqualifiedly disavowed his con Htu tlonsJ obllghi oim. uitcinpl to throw tbe responsibility on the rep< -ev. lie then defended the reporter whose character he said, wonld compare favorably with Mr. Mourner's aiuong persons who i.ncw both; but among stranger*- wonld, perhaps, be treated as inferior to the person who s'-'d en'ally oceup'ed a seat in the Senate. Ihe Senator did make the remark imputed to him, and th~o Senators all anux.d, him cofruooraUid "the report. The qualification pnt en the declaration by "the interpolation in the renort was an Afterthought, and done to shii k and avoid the responsibility of appearing to the world ns a man havinir desecrated the Senate chamber with his presence and the Htly Evangelists with his iliui. II tbe Senator had not disavowed any ob ligation t?- lie constitution, would he have been charged with bavin done so, by the two Senators sitting nearest him? He i.osired to suggest to Senators a means ? of remed} ing this conduct?though there were no means to res^h i person guilty only of crime in thought, <still there was a mode ot defe ding that body from such jiersons.

If the opinion of tho Su pren.e Court covers the whole ground of this act, it ought not to control the co ordinate authorities of this government. The Congress, the exeoutive and the court must ^oh fot itself he guided by its own opinion ?k * constitution. Each purpllc officer who lakes an oath to support the constitution, swears that he will support it as ho understands it, and not as it is under stood by others. It is as much the dutj of the House of Representatives, of tho Senate and of the President to de ride upon the constitutionality of any bill or resolution wi ich may be preaentod to them for passage or approval, as it ia of tbe supreme judges when it may be brought be fore them for judicial decision. The authority of the Su Court must not therefore be permitted to control the Congress or the executive when acting In their legis lative capacities, but to have only such influence as the <<i- reau,*?nin5 deserve." Mark these ?d r- P"bl'C officor who take-i an oath to sup port the constitution swours that ho will support it a* he understands it, and not aa it is understood by others " roes any Senator here dissent from this rnle? Does the ^enator from \ irginU? Does tho Senator from South Carolina? At all evontc, for myself I accept tbe rule as just and reasonable. In swearing to support the constl tution at your desk, Mr. President, I did not swear to Mipi ort it as yon understand it, aa tie gentleman from Virginia, understancs It, or as the Senator from South Caiolina understands it?with a blood hound, or at least dog in it, in purnuit of a slave. No such thing sir I oworc to support it oh I understood it. Now, 1 will no', occuw i our time, uor am I disposed at this moment, nor does the occasion require, that I should go intoMMiy minute ciitlciatn of the clause of tho constitution fcr the suirender o.' fugitives froru ;?bor?assuming, In tho facc of commanding roles of inUrprotation, all leanlnc to ward freedom, that in the concise language of this clause paltering in a double sense, the words employee} j1u'"ciaUy regarded as justly applicable to fugitive slaves, which is often and eainostly de nied, but on which I now exprosa no opinion?as summg, I say, these thin#* are hoatilo to froodom then Id* sire to nay that as I understand thoconstltu tion, this clana*does not impel me to any personal obli gation especially it does not impose upon me any obli gation to render any personal assistance in the surrender ? a fugitive slave. As a Senator, I have taken the oath to support the constitution as 1 understand it;and un derstanding it as I do, I am bound by my oath to oppose all enactments by Congress on tho subject, aa a flagrant violation of the constitution, and e?peci?lly must I op pose the last act, as a tyrannical usurpation. Here my duties as a Senator, under tho oath which I have taken end. In no respect, by my oath as a Senator, can I be constrained to duties in other capacities, or as a simple citizen, which are revolting to my conscience, even though required by positive enactments. Now, in this interpretation of the constitution 1 may bo wrong others may differ from and will act according to their un derstanding?lor myself, I shall act according to mine. On this statement of my constitutional obligations I stand; and to the inquiry whether I would render any personal assistance in surrendering a follow man to bondage, I rcplv again?"Is thy servant a dog, that ho should oo this thing)'" And in looking around upon this Senate1, I might ask fearlessly, how many thore are in this bedy?if, indeed, there is a single Senator, who would atoop to any such service. Until some one rises and openh confesses bis willingness to become a slave hunter, I will not be'.levo that there can he one; and yet honorable' and chivalrous Senators havo been prompt to judge mo because I openly declare! my abhorr -nco of a seivice at which every manly l>osom must revolt. "Sire 1 have found in Bayonne brave soldiers and good citi zens, but not one exocutioncr," was the noble reply of tl.e Governor' of that place to Charles the Ninth, of Fiance, when be ordered tho massacre of St. Bartholo mew; and such a spirit, 1 think, will yel animate tho people of this country, when pressed to the service of dogs. To the Question wliinh has been proposed?whether Massachusetts will, by State laws, curry out the offensive clause of the con&tituMon? I reply that Mn Pacini setts nt all times has been ready to do her duty under the constitution as she understands it, und, I doubt not, will ovor cont'nu" of ibis mini. More than tiiU I cannot -ay. In quitting this topic I cannot forbear to remark that toe assault* on me for my ditclelmrr of all constitutional obligation to render per (onal nssistnrce to make a man a stare, come with an il grsce fiom tho veteran Senator of Virginia, a State which by its far fumed resolutions of 1798 asBumod to determine its constitutional obligations, even to the extent of nulli fying an act of Congress; and also with an ill grace frrm the veteran Senator of South Carolina, a State which at a later day arrayed itself openly against the federal authorities, and which threatens nullification nn often as bal-ies cry.

Sir, the Senator, fresh from the Nebraska bill, can speak of 1 the good faith of slaveholdlng communities only in iroay; I and let me add, that, when he says that American indo , l endence waa won by the arm*, and because of slave j holding communities, he spoke either bHrony or igno I ranee.

I will not dive into the bowel* of history to aneail Massachusetts. I will never be the vsmpire. He then defended S.Carolina. Tha Senator had Catlj denied that the imtoiendence of tie country was achieved by sUveholding State*. All the States of the confederacy at the time of the Declaration of Inde l*ni!ence were slavehoiding S'ates. Massachusetts was tlaveholdiug If the people did not buy slaves they sold them; they carried on the traffic in slavery. Otis, Han oi ck, a; (I the Adam's, were the representatives of slave bf'lding Massachusetts. Was not Massachusetts a slave holding State ? Mr. M'MNM.?Not in any just sense. Mr Bcttlbk said the Senator always assumed facta to fiuit t'je Issues he presented and which he argued. It was now assumed that Massachusetts at that time was not a slave State in auy just sense, because it suited the argun'eut of the Senator; but history proved the con trary. Ccnnecticut was a slave State, New Jersey, Penn nylvoiiia, Delaware, were slave States. Was not New York a slave State" Mr. St.ireBR?Tba Senator from New York can answer. Mr. BinriR?'The Senator from New York would doubt less answer trulv?Uiat would not suit the Senator. Ifc. Ss'wsiu*?It is uuo to candor to state, that at the tfme of tho revolution every twelfth man In New York was a pIave holder. Mr. B;htee repotted? On saying that the independence war, gained by slf veholden, he did not menu the Caroli na* alone, in addition to those he had named were Mary land and Virginia. These all were slaveboiling States, and could the Senator ook him in the face* and deny it? Mr. SnMMiK ta!d. that in speaking of slavehoiding States they il'd not includo '.hose where slavery existed more by accident t:.an as part of the settled system of civilisation of th< State. It was understood to mean onlj States wlisre slavery was essentially an institution of the Slate. Mr. Bptikr taid this was another of those assumptions of fnct to meet the issue presented hy the Senator him self, and on which he sent out to the country his rhetori cal and eloquent declrmation. The fact, however, that the Stat) s at the time of the revolution wero stavehold ing communities, was so palpable that it was useless to argue it further. The statement of Jihe Senator was rhetorically false. He denied having at any time assailed Boston or Massachusetts. He always abstained from making any comparison between different States or sec tions. Boston and Massachusetts have vindicated them selves, and neouted the Constitution, in spite of their miSTCpreoeotlnc advocate IIo teolied to Mc. Sumner's remarks about Sr. Hoar's case, and referred to a pathetic appeal Hf>?' - by ? - Boston captsto Ikcant-e two n^gr>j seamen were nnpr'?>nod in Cbarleii ton this captain abandoned hi* comrades, returnol to Boston, and wrote a most affecting essay upon the suf ferlrg* ol his companion*, and yet npon t avment of two dollars he could havo had them released, but he would not sympathise with them so far as paying that amount. 'Ill* fnoestion as to what Mr. Sumner did say on Monday as to his recognition of the authority of the constitution was then commented upon. Messrs. Fessesmw, Rcwk, Ci_*t, Giujit, all gave their recollection of what took pluce. Tho reports in the Gldbr and the New York papers were read over and ores again. Mr. Sdiner said be understood the question was pnt to him whether he would personally assist in the arrest or return of a slavey and to that, bad answered that he recognized no xucli obligation as iiuposod on him by the constitution. Mr. Butus resumed, and for some time warmly and eloquently defended his State. Mr Pkitit again addressed the Senate npon the subject of what Mr. Sumner actually caid on Monday. Mr. Tot'CKY ?aid ho would l>e unwilling at any time to bold any man responsible for a hasty word, but he do sired tho Senator from Massachusetts would now state whether he recognized any obligation imposed by the constitution to return a fugitive slave? Mr. Si'mnib?To which question, I answer emphatical ly, No. Mr Ci>v?I hope there will be no doubt now as to what the Senator says. 'the motion to refer was agreed to, and at nearly five o'clock the Senate adjourned. Home of Iltprrwnfaitlrri. Wa."uisoto?, Juno 28,1864. rrOTWTlO.T FOB SHll'PWO 0!l THE COAST.

The attendance at the Nation il C<ane yeattr d %y was fuller than on any day during th' ?wk, tbi' attraction being great and ?? uv impale* havi ng been g Ten b* the beautiful ru niag of th* pixvi *>ua days, and The great orde aid deooraai iuaii ti ^?ed on the ground by the rig 'a-.oe of tka ent rgct ^ officer baring charge of th ? | o loe.

This is a very liberal arrangement in reapoot to ladies, and will mo doubt bring t^toa> out in scores. We would aufflge.st ax. improvement to the proprietor* of the ewiMbe. We heard it ^snvrally complained of yesterday that the trees ioaide th* enclosure, although Highly ornamental, w&re neverthelee* a gieat ebBt' option to a perfect view of the running? st certain pet uts the horses not being visible at aft. No doubt this srill be remedied immediately Two race? weae announced to sone off yesterday, oAly one of which was contested, in the otber, twa of the horses were with trawn, on account of other enphgemenU O0P of t^c thieo which ectered^ howsver, gallopped round and toob the parse. Tha horses ia the C'lnb Purse, three mile heats, were Blonde, by Ulencee, daaa by Wacrner, 4 year* *ld? and Dl Clapperton, *>y Host on, dam by Monaroh; f years old. Blonde, to oar eye, is the beau tdtal of a race mare. Nothing cam exceed the beauty and symsao* try of her form and her fair proportions. He* owner had intended to enter her in th* great State Rtet Stake at NewOifeans last spr'ag. but free* Borne reason which we at present cannot recollect* she was net entered, aad Highlander was substi tuted in her place. Blonde bears a near reseat* blance to lllghiander. combining all hu. ^roalneat racing points in a fine? degree?-as might he looked for in a filly. We do not remember her being ran finished but once, and that was by Wade tfaiapte*^ last winter, at New (Means, in a single dash at two miles, she being then out of condition, and, laboring under severe cold, which she contracted oat the Mississippi river, from exposure. Bhs ? teeee ered, however, quickly, and in a few days after beat the famous horse At row. Her condition yesterday was so fine, that her owner was sanguine that a* horse living could boat her ia the present race. Kvery person seemed to be instinctively aware of her superiority, and the odds offered on her wera very heavy?the whole of Wall street to the da? funct Plainfleld Bank. Di Clapperton is a beautiful mare, and combiaea high qualities as a racer, but we do not think that she ever will become a rival to Lexington, High lander, Lecomte, Blonde, or Arrow. In the preeeat race, Betting aside other considerations, she labeled under the disadvantage, on account of her age, ef carrying seventeen pounds more weight than her competitor, Blonde. In addition to the stables now on the ground, others from the Bourh would have been here, bat were deterred by fear of the abolition inoendiariee and underground railroads?Southern grooms and riders being principally negroes. We can asiar* our Southern friends that they have nothing to fear in that respect. There never was but ono instance known of a negro being enticed away from a racing stable?negroes being proverbially fond of horses? and he belonged to O. P. Hare. After an absence of a few days, his morala were so contaminated by abolition culture that lie committed a theft, and waa sent to Blackwell's Island for six months, and his owner refused to take him home after his term of imprisonment expired. ? The hour having arrived for the race to commenoe, the bugle was Bounded for the horses to appear* After the usual ceremonies of weighing ana in strutting the riders had been '/one through with.tha horses were saddled, mounted, and came up for thn First Heal?Di Cluppertou on the inside, ridden by a colored boy, dressed in blue, one of the beak riders we have ever known, riding as If part of the horse. She took the lead at the ?t ut, followed by Blonde, both hand in hand. They continued on with a gap of about half a dozen lengths, bctwten th<m until they had ran about three fourths of a mile. When on the turn of the home stretch, iilonde ran up very close to the bay . mare; but her ridertaking a new pall, she slackenen | her speed, and Di C'lapperton led by the stan i about | three lengths in advance, taking the first mile la | 1:54$. They continued in about the saute position, with an occasional falling burk on the part oc Blonde, until she was in front of the Mansion House, on the beck stretch. Here her lider gave her bee head, aud accelerating ho pace she rapidly dashed in front, about a couple ol lengths, and then loped steadily along, passing the stand three length} in advance, in i:5M(. The running now became exci ting, for, as they reached the btckstretuh, Di, steal ing a march on Blonde, suddenly dadied by her, and was a rouple of length' ahead in a moment. A shout now went up from l>i's backers, who, in fan ciful imagination, lingered the odds they had been betting against. B:.t the triumph was short lived; hardly had the echoes died away before Blonde was trgain in front, and going at a rate that gave no hopes of her being overtaken, before -he had reach ed the goal. DiV rider was as much surprise i an ; some others, and laying on the whip, cnde*vored ta recover his lost ground. Alas! poor darkey! his case was hopeless, for Blonde came in a winner under n hard pull a length ahead, in 1:544, making the three miles in 6:42J. Srcond Hi at ?The time between beats having elapw d, the horses were again started, Di Clapper ton leading. Blonde trailing, as before, who did not make Hn effort to change her position during the first mile Tune 1:66. Di, increasing her speed, was about forty yarns in advance when she came in vit w Jrom behind the trees: but going down the back stretch and around the lower turn Blonde went trp to within a oonple of lengths of her. whoto she lay until Di had passed the score and entered on the third mile. Time of the second mile 1:514. Ascend ing the upper turn, Blonde increased her speed, went up to Di, where she lay, until, in front or the Mansion House, she passed her in gallant style, and came home winner of the heat and race in 6:431, making the third mile in 1:57.
