It snvs "Without seeking to intcrfero with tho action of Congress, the President bus frankly aud unroserv cdly expressed his conviction in favor of tho prin cipled Congressional noii-iutervciitiou to ull w ho ham sought his opinions. As to the form of tho proposition, ho has not cared to interpose his pre Icruucus; but as to tho substance oi the proposi tion, he h is consulted freely aud anxiously.

Wo inaUo this remark with emphasis, bei'suso wo have been painod to see it iutimatod that tlio 'distinguished Senator from Illinois (Mr. Douglas) had brought forward bis proposition not only without the approval of tho President, but for the sinister purpose of embarrassing tho Adminis tration and promoting bis owu ulterior views of promotion.

At every turn the North has been outraged, robbed nnd spit upon j and over vvhon this witching word has been pronounced, sho has forgotten hor wrongs and insults and obsequiously kissed the hand that has inflicted all, and begged for union with bcr oppressor on any terms ho should pro scribe. But notwithstanding all this, wo arc not without hope tli.it there is a point somewhere, beyond which even northern servility and slavish submission can- not rench. Wo do not despair of the success of -'r- Douglas and thoso w ho shall succeed him, in convincing Yankee traders thut it is of no use to mnko u bargain with tho scamp who will always repudiato his bond. They will seo that it is a car dinal principlo w ith the elnvebolding Jesuits w ho rulo this nation, that no faith is to bo kept with the heretics of freedom, and that no lying, religious Jesuit was ever inure firm and pructicul in ihi opinion than are those same slaveholders. A union for liberty and justice is tho most sncrcd of bonds. But a union which under hypocritical preleuH of these, is always tho friend and minister of slavery, is tho most infamous of ull relations and its bonds should be at once and forover repu diated and independence declared, The slaveholders deem tlio Uniou, intrimically, as nothing. They so treat it so spouk of it. Bot the Uniou is everything when it can be made a means to support their despotism over their black slaves or their white confederates. Let us learn from them a lesson. Lot us, in any confederation we form or continue, use it as on instrumentality to advance freedom, and defend justice nnd right. Any other union let us denounce, repudiate and forsake. If this L right, then are we bound to repudiate and renouuee the American confederacy. It is a confederacy on the part of its controlling members for hianstevling the worst of piracy ! A confederacy which its whole history proves to have boon piratical in purposo and act. And the Nebraska bill is its Inst proof that it is as perfidi ous as piruto ever wus or ever can be. Shall we be longer confederate 'with these pirates and par takers of their guilt and dishonor? If we so con sent our ruin is sealed and inevitable. This nation may talk as it pleases, but no other remedy will save it. .The slave power will never believe us in earnest with them, till with calm and solemn de termination, wo propose to thorn the alternative of emancipation or dissolution. When this propo sition shall come from the North, with an ernestucss which shall secure a conviction that we mcno whnt we say, slavery will indeed speak great' swelling words will rago, then qunke and disappear. How determined slaveholders look at this question of the Union, and how all should look at it, lot our reader learn from the following extract from the speech of Mr. Krr, of North Carolina, mado lust week in tho House of ileprosentatives, on this Nebraska question lam. as rnv rollauue.s well know, at home!l?i,e considered one of the most ardent of Union men. : niU'iiuunniliisuiwiniiii i.jmunv ....... n..ww tho world; an the best and surest means of elevating .: . 1 j -1 1 11. . .........

SALEM UNION SCHOOL. character, and make it blow tell effectual- A petition has recently been in circulation for an election again to test the opinions of our citizen in reference to the I'nion School. The motives for opposition are various, but whatever they may bo, thoso influenced by them seem disposed to combine to overthrow tho School. Soctariun preferences control! some the money that it costs, others others again dislike the Teachers, or the Board; or their children havo not boon iu their estimation treated with propriety. Others aro not pleased with so promiscuous a gathering. They want something select. Now any one or all of theso offer no good reason why tho system should bo set asido. Tho School is but in its infancy, nnd liko all such beginnings h is to encounter numerous difficulties. Those who havo had the control of it hnvo labored diligently nnd faithfully, They will in future grow wisor, and we doubt not nianago better. At least thcy sbould, however well they havo done in tho past. Let us not discontinue it, at least till the system has had a full und fair tost. To suspend it would bo a great calamity to tho educational interests of Salem. In no other way can as good schools be obtained as cheaply. Wc bear of grnis misrepresentations in regard to the school, especially in reference to expenses. On this point the Homestead Journal give the follow ing figures, which we presume aro correct. We challenge any othor system thnt has been tried in the county, to give cvidenco of having afforded as good a School as has been the Union School thu fur in Snlem, for as small an annual cost por scholar. Wo could have no Select School as com prehensive in tho branches taught, that would not havo averaged more than double tho cost. And then many would have been shut out from attend ance upon such schools.

Public attention has of lute been moro than ever turned to the outcast children of poverty and crime, in our largo cities. And happily tho friends of these hitherto friendless ones, have hit upon tho most auspicious means for their rescue and improvement. Among the instru mentalities of awakening attention to this subject, is the "Ragged School Reporter," a neat little monthly paper published in New York, at SO conts per annum. Its object ia to awaken an interest in the sufferings and necessities of destitute and abandoned children. It bolioves that those hither to hopeless ones can be saved from the life and fate of ignorance and crime, and converted into the livj ing, practical friend of pure ordor, sobriety and industry. For this, like a good Providenco, this little paper labor. Those who would inform thomsclvcs of the sub jects and mean of thi reform, would do well to send their names, accompanied with a half dollar, to Augustine Duganne, No 49, Charubers-St., New York, and thus obtain tho Reporter.

Dear Marivi: Wore it possible for mo to do the subjoct justice, a good theme for a letter would be, Life on Board a "Royal British Steamship." But that word Royal lifts it into region to me out of sight. So you must be content with a few sketches of things as they appeared outside The ships aro strong and massive, and under ordinary circumstances, nbout as safo a an old Fcudol Castle. The new and improvod idea of abandoning the altar of Safety, and acrificing only at tli shrine of Sjxrtl, is a species of idolatry into which John Bull will no more come, than a Jew would have bowed down in the temple of a Samaritan. Ho still thinks it is better to arrive an hour later, with a tehole neck, than a half hour sooner, with a broken one. And as lung as it must bo "neck or nothing," thero are a few othor left of the same opinion. On board the America, we wero rung up at eight. Then breakfast lasted from half past eight, an hour or more. This wns in importance, tho sec ond moal of the day, though first In the order of tune. M e had to do tho best wo might, on coflce, two or three kinds of tea, oat meal gruel, very- thick, beef steak, mutton chop, ham aud eggs, minced fish, fried herrings, sausages, and cold meats of all descriptions, w ith warm biscuit, dry toast, plain bread, butter and cheeso. On these fete things wo wore required to slag our stomachs. until twelve. Thon wo had lunch. The table wero all laid as in tho morniug, nnd tho meal was much tho snme excepting that it dispensed with the teas and coffco, and a few other articles, but still with somo additional dishes, making a rather sumptuous affair. At half post three the first dinner bell struck after which wc had a half hour for dressing, or any other preparation. At four, we were rung in to the tables. Sinco Henry C. Wright has so often given in tho Liborator a westorn farmer's table treat and treasures, in his letters to Richard D. Webb, and othor foreign readers, I will revenge thsm upon him, by giving a dinnor "Bill of Faro," under British supervision. Then it will appear that peoplo out of tho great west, have at least "ctkimIw of comfort" too. I procured a printed bill of faro of tho steward, and will hero transcribe it. Recollect it is for dinnor only. Soup, Fish, Beef, Mutton, Lamb, Veal, Pork, Pigs, Turkeys, Gocse, Ducks, Fowls, Curric, Stows, Fricassees, Made Dishes and Calves Head. Thon under the head of Pastries, aro, Applo Pics, do. Puddings, Raspberry Tarts, Strawberry do., Cranberry do., Plum do., Damson do., Gooseberry do., Roll Pud dings, Plum Puddings, Rice Puddings, Pancakes, and Omelettes. All these particular preparations wero never served nt tho samo dinner. But tho duplicates and various changes of such as wero on tho table, would keop the number well maintained. Ou the Bill given mo jy the Steward, there wero served that day under tho meat department, eighteen dishes, and under the pastry, sixteen. And noth ing of vegetable is mentioned, nor yet of condi ments ; though of theso nothing was wanting. The courses wero flvo : Soup, Fish, Meat, Pastry, and Dossert, with climigo of furnituro every timo. Of tho Dessort, tho fifth course, tho "Fifth and Last Act of the Performance," I havo said noth ing as yet. Tho tables were all cleared, tho cloths removed, and then came plates, knives, and nut crackers. Tho dossert consisted of Oranges, Olives, Apples, Figs, Raisins, Prunes, Almonds, Waluuts, Filberts, and nobody know w hat, though I am suro thoso wore not ull ; nor was there any change in this course, at least of any consequence, from day to dny. Such wa tho Dinner of a Day, except that, which to some, I am sorry to ss.y, secmod of the most consequence, and that was tho drinks. The nicest Cochituato water, with Ico, wa froe for all. For the Liquors, I must havo recourse again to the Steward. On his Bill, wero two brands of Cham pagne, Claret, Hock, Tort, Sherry, Maderia, Bran dy, Hollands, Whiskey, Rum, Ale, Porter, Soda water, Cider and Lemonade Aud all the prices were put down, for the glass, or quuutity, up to the bottle or the quart. And I must confess novor be fore to have scon drinking reduced to such a sci ence, fior did I ever know beforo, that mortal man could imbibo so much, and yet remain per fectly ober. But we are not getting on very fust, for there aro two more meals yet to bo disposed of. Dinner detained us about an hour and a quarter by which time, candles had long been lighted. Then at half past seven, came supper. This consisted mainly of tea, toast, butter and cake not much accouut wa made of it by most of the company, and so a great deal bettor justice wa done to tho Luueh at half past ten. The last meal, was this, of the day, and we could have what we called for, I observed that Lobsters and Oysters, toasted cheoso, poached eggs, cold fowl, bam and sandwiches, were the most in demand, and Alo, Porter, and hot Whiskey Punch and Slings, washed them down. At half past eleven the saloon was closed, and at twelve, the last candles were extinguished. So went the day and every day except Sundays and then the only change made, was, that at half past ten, we had the English church servico read in the large saloon most of the eompany, and the ship' crew also, giving respeotful attention. Nearly all the passonger were from Canada. Three only wore from the States, and one or two nt most, were all who live this uido of the waters. I have never seen a more civil and agreeable com pany of person ; except that some of them in tho matter of devotion to the "good things of life," as they are called, over did the matter, to an ex tent uuheard of to me bofore. But novor was thore an irregularity in word or act, so far us re lated to soeiul intercourse, ami wo had really a pleasant as well as prosperous voyage. But have I not wearied you out f How a story will grow on my hands! And now, not half has been told, even on till! topics 011 w hich I have touehed. Next time my subjects shall be more) important, and I hope my letter more interesting. Till then I remain ns ever, Most devotedly vours and readprs', PARKER PILLSBURY. FROM MICHIGAN. ANN ARBOR, Feb. 15, 1854. I reached Adrian on the day I left Salem, and was thenco conveyed by a friend to Livonia, where was being held tho first Convention culled by lh Michigan Stnto Anti-Slavery Society. The jolting over fifty odd mile of ordinary road, w hich consti tuted my first day and a half txperienco in th State, made me moro than over thankful for the in vention of the iron track. And vet railroads bar) by no means attained n sti-to of perfection 1 for though the managers of the various companies have dono much to sccuro the comfort of their pas sengers, there is still Mom for further improvement. 1 have heard of smoking cart being attached to some trains, for the benefit of those who were unable to exist without cignrs, or perchance for tho comfort of such ns object to being fumigated by r tho vile weed which is used by nlmost every other man and boy you meet. And in so far separating the impure from the pure, such action is good, hut . the principle demands a further extension. A line of demarcation should bo drawn between thecnf' frs and non-chowcrs, the spiltcrt and non-epitter. And every one who witnessed the condition of th car in which I took passage from Salem, would have been convinced thnt such is tho fact. The floor had no mats to absorb the expectorations of the ruminating animals w ho had, or who then occupied1 the car t so that the amount and consistency of h liquid thus disposed of could have bceu accurately ascertained by tho curious. Somo of the more en ergctic ehewers bad created a perfect Lake Superior with hero nnd there a used up quid towering aloft like on island in its midst; others had formed In numerable miniature lnkcs; hero ran a stream as intcrniinnblo as the Mississippi, nnd there had fallen a deluge scarcely inferior in quantity lo the) eatnrnct of Ningarn. Quito a number of women took passage in the ears, nnd it was a pitiable sight to sec them with their skirts cnrcfnlly gnthored npf wandering nbout, vainly seeking for a decent place in which to tit. And after they wero soatcd, the wero not out of danger, but had continually to guard against the foul water-spouts that were con tinually descending and breaking nt their very feet, I don't know but girls hnvo just as good a right to uso tobacco as boys, but 1 confess I was poinewhat astounded to bo told by a teacher in a village in fills Slate, that not long since, two of his pupils, girls between twclvo and fifteen years of ago, chewed, and several others smoked. But enough of the weed. " W " has, I presume, given yon some account of tho Convention nt Livonia; sinco then I havo held a scries of meetings in Wntorford, Wayne Co., the peoplo of w hich plaeo nro mostly unconnected with any church organization, and more than usually interested in questions of moral reform. At Ypsi Innti I joined J. W. Walker, and w c held there two meetings, neither of which wero very lurgoly at tended; after another meeting at a place six mile distant, we wont to Detroit. We had sent appoint ments thoro for the 13th, l lth nnd 15th, nnd as the 'Frco Democrat" had seemingly complained that' thoso in connection wiih thnt paper bud not been applied to by somo who hnd previously held meet-' ings in thnt city, we wrote them a request to secure a hall for us, and notify tho meetings, (in our ar rival iu Detroit, wo immediately visited the Demo crat office, nnd were informed they hnd secured the City Hall for Monday and Wednesday evenings, but wero unable to procure a pluco for Tuesdny j they informed us we need gio ourselves no further trouble about the Hall, und wo did not. Wu had some bills posted announcing our meetings, and then patiently awaited tho hour. At 7 o'clock a friend accompanied us to tho Hull, which we found in darkness nnd with closed doors; mine of our disappointed auditors informed us that it was not only necessary to secure tho grant of tho Hall, but tho services of somo pcrsou to opou, light aud warns it. I do not know whether tho Democrat folk wero ignorant of this, or w hether it was a coso of neglect. Taking into consideration tho fact that Dr. Cutchcun was giving a course of lecture on physiology, that on Wednesday evening (tho only night wo could be iu Dotroit when we could have hall) a very popular temperance lecturer was to speak, and that Undo Tom's Cabin was being playod tocrowdod housescvory night, we concluded to withdraw our remaining appointment, and dufer our labors thero to n more propitious timo. As we could not ourselves talk anti-slavery, wa thought the next best thing wns to go nnd hoar it from Uncle Tom nnd St. Clair. Although I was never in a theater before, I could readily seo that the one in Detroit was of au inferior kind. Tbo company were not strong enough in numbers to do just ico to tho piece, and several of tho character wero indifferently represented. I cannot conceive, however, how Unelo Tom could huve been better played j and Eva wo Eva' self, as puro, as gentle, and ns childlike as Mrs. Stowe created her. Indeed it wa almost impossible to realize thut it wa not Eva bodily, as it was spiritually. Topsy too, wa admirably done ; and Cassy, St. Clair, and Misa Opholio wore passable. It is but seldom that one can hear a much of tho Gospel of Humanity from, tho pulpit, as was preached that night from the theatrical boards ; and there aro not many anti-sla very conventions that put furth moro ultra doctrine in rotation to slavery than was there ennunciated, aud received loo, by the audience with the loudest demonstrations of applause Uncle Tom's pathetio words, and Eva's sweet and angol-like tone a thoy sat in thoir favorite bower, and the one read of the son of fire and of glass, and tho othor sang of spirit bright, tnoltod the entire audience into tear. And in other part of tha drama, the lan guage of these two frequently so appealed to the sympathetic feolings, that the response wa in tear. Success, ay I, to Uncle Tom' Cabin, w hether itbe read in the word painting of its originator, speak from the canvass dioramas, or is embodied by hi trionio art. Had tho anti-slavery ngitatioa ef the past twenty years dona nothing more thun to pre paro the public mind for the reception of Mr. Stowe' work softoning its prejndices, enlighten ing its perceptions, and infusing into it an increased) love for freedom tho labor of the abolitionist would have accomplished a great work. But in preparing the way for Uncle Tom's Cabin, they havo also boou preparing the wny for an anti-sla-vory reform in Church und in State ; and who can doubt that tho work will speedily progress, until the principles of anti-slnvory are ns practically familiar to politicians and ecclesiastics, as is the creation of Mrs. Siowo's genius to the families of B.
