I would say to gentlemen from , - c - . the free States, tuat thoso who i make compromises with others, to enable those others to enslave their lenow-men anywhere, or ior any purposo but Hi punishment of crime havo no reason to expect ; ufh rnmnrntmanv tri I l.n iilnanrvPtt w inn I in m- terViu .Tf the enWl.vnr; ITin 7 ,, (, vi.l, .

Iscariot did not bargain for the crucifixion but nicroly to tho extent of showing the chief priests whoro their victim might bo fount' ; still, tho vordict of mankind has condemned tho traitor m tho guiltier of the parties to that world-abhorred compact of tho thirty pieces of silver." Sir, when tho people of the free States tell the black man's freedom to the hbivcholder, it is not strango that tho latter insist on guaranty of title; and when this guaranteo is most easily effected by a broach of the contract of guaranty, tliis infraction becomes the na'ural and characteristic remedy ; and herein gentlemen of the free Sta'e3 hnve" a practical illustration of the proverb "what is got gver the Devil's back j.ies under bis belly." ilns yue ana dicker -on , tno part ot northern men with tt.o black mans inal.enahle rights, nearot km, in nn immkic way. to that renowned ! compact, impudently proitered oy the arch op pressor of mankind to tho Oreat Kmaneipator, by which "all tho kingdoms of the earth, nnd the glory thereof," were to be transferred to their rightful owner in exchange for the adoration which the prince of cheats and kn.ies owed but impiously withheld. Sir, will northern statesmen never loam, even by experience, that slavery is an incurable ulcer on the body-politic, weiring out the very bfo of free dom 1 th it it is aceaseloss aggression upon justice, nnd from its very imlurc, eieni.illy opposed to law and order? that it and free loin never, never can bo so fraternize! as to dwell together in unity y ii... i iia .-,!.,,.. tu it... ......i;. ..I i..i;.... wliic'h'is tho foundatii.il of h'w? Why not "luck this mere surface truth in the fa'-o. and cease these vain attempts at tinkering up alliances r.r.d com.' pacts botweou interests in their deepest nature etc:'- j and irreconcilalily hos.ile ? Why talk ufcuiu-1 pacts, when we know that slavery lives nnd has its being in broach of faith ; that iis fell and h.uei'ul spirit, tho very soul of it, is aggression, violence. I nnd the gratification i f its owr. unbridled wiil? j Hence, the seizure of Texas, the dismemberment Mexico, tho' eager coveting of Cuba, and now, lastly, this attempt to thrust its exe.-rablu tell , upon Kansas and nobraskn. Sir, the spirit of nla - very is tho deadly enemy of human rights, tlio enemy of tho human race. Compiuinises with it are as impious as they are foolish nod vain. ihn spread ot this spirit, like the march 01 the;' -.!i ...i. . ii. ..I. : .1 i . :.. .1.. . . pestilenco "that walketh in darkness," is the terror ot mankind. 1 no spirit ol liljerty and tno spirit ot slavery cannot co-exist in uarnuny. Aiicmpis to unite angels of light with "goblins damned" 'would be no more audaciously impious. Sew usj'hat many pillions under tho armholcs of oppression , and injustice, daub them with the untempered mortar of "compacts nnd compromises," as mud: as you win, your atii-nip to join logoir.cr wnai u-jo i Almighty has put asunder, ought, and must, nnd srill. lull to pieces as a miserable botch of t.scudo statesmanship, lit only for the scorn and doriaiou of mankind.

" Compacts and adjustments" have been "weighed iu tho balance nnd found wanting," nnd tho issue between liberty nnd sla tery, so long "staved off" by self-glorifying states men, aspiring politicians, nnd " lower law" divines, must now be joinedj thanks to tho restless little and would-be great men, who commenced clubbing tho applo of the Presidency so long before it was j ripe, and wniio tiicmscivcs, niso, wcro cquany grcon. 1 ThO political crimes and follies of every fctrug - gle Tor the ''residency, tho distriuutiou ot the snoils when that struggle is over to incompetent and worthless political fortune hunters, ns a reward j for the frauds atid falsehoods, tho tiicks nnd cheats; practiced on the r.i.-.sses of the people j of the freo States, to decov them into tno support of some impotent tool of tho slavery propagandists, art just beginning to open their eyes to the fact tliat our partisan politicians are neither patri ots nor statesmen, but rather a gang of political prirateors and freebooters, who havo navigated tho ahin of Stato on to tho outer circuits of the great whirlpool of universal slavery; nnd that, unless this piratical crew are cast ovcrboaad, nnd the i-htp's helm put hard over with a stern nud defiant hand, her cargo of freodom is lest forever. " Liberty for the slave, or slavery for tho free laborer," is now tho dilemma into which tho Union is forced by tho cupidity of tho slaveholders and the corruptions of free Statos politi. ill adventurers; and, as non-si. vvtiioLDKiis, thcro is no choico left to us but to submit to the iron dcsr.otirm of the slavery propagandists, or suffer thu North and the South, like Abraham and Lot of old, to part as friends rather than to lire together ns rival ene mios, in a hopeless and embittered struggle to harmoniie systems so utterly, fatally irreconcilable, as ustitTT and SLAViay. Tho gentleman from Georgia, Mr. Stephens, the other day, seemed lo imugiue blinsolf fighting over again the great compromise buttlo of 1H50.; and inasmuch as uorthnm gentlemen at that tim! cither were, or affected to bo alarmcJ for the safety of the Union, the gentleman is under the delusion that the like bluster now will produce the liko etl'ect upon the prest ut Congress. That gentleman (and r. i t.v no m.na (Via onlv ono in tha samu dark" nen) ov'dontly did not then understand the eanses which led to that ruinous and disgraceful surrender nf northern prinoiplos aud northern honnr ; and he j mutt Imvo been trtauttU( ftuui that tano to Ihis. j j I I ll:"e !'"'

About one-tenth. or 1,100, are slaveholders, the balance, 9,800 aro "poor white folks," (I believe they aro so termed at tho South.)

Tho "prejudices" of my constituents, for instance in favor of tho "golden rule," and the Declaration of Independence, added to the univer sal instincts of humanity the teachings of reason the voice of conscience ns woll ns tho invincible biases of a Christian education, all constitute a Gibrnltar of difficulties, which I confess would he sufhoicnt even to dampen tho chivalry of tho veri est of the Quixots among the slavery propagandists. Besides, in my case, with the exception of some two or three hundred Government officials, whose "prejudices" on these subjects are not vincible but vendible, I havo of mulo constituents, of twenty years old nnd upward, over twenty thousand capa bio of reading nnd writing, together, with a like number of women, equally well instructed, intelli gent, and, if possible, of still more unconquerable love of justice, liberty, and Christianity, and a corresponding abhorrence of slavery. All thoso, Mr. Chairman, constitute a nhabinx of oninncina- tiiinists, whose "prejudices In favor of universal liberty, under just and buuinnc laws, I have neither the inclination nor the audacity, oven to ntk to "v nqucr. ."i 'iri "n 1 eoute thst l I.,it nn I t ! i : j ! , ! ! i !

" 11 ": The recent conduct nf not onlv the Abolitionists, but of the belter portion of tho pcoplu of Boston also, should oneu tho eves of thu South, nnd prompt her citizens to take proper steps to main - tain tl.eir rights and to prepare for the crisis which is fast approaching. Wo havo been often told that the great body ol the Northern people are disposed to stand by" the compromises of the Constitution, and to oby the laws of the land iii relation to tho rendition of fu- gitive slaves but w? have seen no evidence of such patriotism on their part. It may bo true that a roafority 0f tbcm are not slarc ,1'alers : but tLe n.,.t ,lmt ,,lc bH(. ,,c,ltiniout of tie Xorth doe ll0t enforce a prompt and ready obedience to the enactdfor the protection of ?uutllorn ! I". " w"1' P""" honesty ou tlicir lips they nro willing to see Ui rohhed, and that tlicy stand Ly and permit it robbed, nnd thiU they su.nd by and permit it tube,, done, -without rinsing a hand to prevent the summation of the outrage. Can any one believe that there would have been nuy necessity for call ing out a portion of tho United States army to ex ecute the law, if the people of Uoston hiid been disposed to do justicu to tho South ? If tho law abiding portion of her eitisens nro unable to keep the abolitionists in check, they must be in a minor ity. If, on the other band they nre strong enough to enforce the law, hnving failed '.o do so, they show their sympathy with the abolitionists to such a degree as must satisfy every mind that the South need not expect justke at their hnnds. In cither case, we have no security for our rights, and the sooner our people shnll set about to devise some adequate means for tho pi enervation of their interests, the letter it will bo for thrui. I am ne alarmist, no disunionist t ut I think it must be apparent to every thinking mind, that our connection with the North eniinot bo muintaincd, unless the people of the North will do us justice. There can be no confidence between the two sec tions of the country as long as it shall be required to call on the armed forces of tho C'cncrul Govern ment to enforce a rolucHaut and constrained obedi ence to tho laws which havo Lccu passed for our protection. Our Northern "brethren for such I will still call them presume too much on our known devotion to'lbo Union. They should know, however, that there is a point beyond which forbearance ceases to ho n virtue, nnd at which patriotism itself, no less than self-interest, may require of the South to sever a connection which is maintained only for their oppression and degradation; Until this crisis is forced on us wo should be thinking nbout " the mode and measure of redress." What can wo do to teach our enemies that we will not al ways submit to their aggressions? Iu view of the recent verdict in tho case of SrooNEn rj. Daniel, which I regard as one of the greatest enormities yet committed on tlio South, 1 would hife our people r.''mc to sul'milc to am journal ;.o(i'.yiO!? in a jrVre .V.'o.'c. And, ns our .Northern brethren aro "warring to tho knile against Southern labor, let us dismiss from our employment all northern men who have not given unmistakable evidence of their devotion to our institutions. Kspecially would I invoke thoso who Imvo the directiun of our public tcoi k.i to lot.tf no time in casting off nil such individuals'. Were 1 the Hoard of Public Works, I would call on every State Director to uso influences in carrying oui this policy. Why should we nourish vipers in our bosoms, who sting us whenever an occasion odors? The recent arrest of one of their Northern em ployees on the Virginia nr.d Tennessee Kail-road, for his insurrectionary efforts, shows that the nbo- Ijtioiiis'.B have their secret agents among us ; and the frequent Cncai.es of our slaves along tho lines f impruv"!!. cut, loaves no doubt on the minds of tnose wtio imvo given an attention to tno suhiect lnc;!0 ngcnls ato judiciously distributed ou our public works. Let us, then, look to our own safety, and apply tho proper remedy for the evil of which w o com plain. Let a lofty patriotism, and not a blind party spirit, guido us iu all our delibcraticus and iu all our actions. Let tho people of the South unite as brotbrcn in defence of their common rights and common inte rests; and wo will teach thu people ut tho JNoito that the y must do us justice tciihout Ine intervention of the armed forees of tho United States; or that they mny regard us no longer their brethren, but as enemies who aro nut to be despised.

MASON. The following curious narrative terms part ot a letter of an occasional correspondent of the Ao- 'ttonal ura. LONDON, April 29, 1854. For many years there bad been connected with' the American legation iu Paris u negro of remark able qualifications. He was r.ot a Virginia negro, for they seldom speak French, nud w ould make themselves awkwardly objectionnl at French courts, lie was nn unostentatious man, a great linguist; clover diplomatist, nnd wns respected by all whey know him for his nffahlo manners. Ho had. fut" many years been the main staff of tho legation i and several times during Saufurd's absence prove" himself not to bo worst nxjger connected w itn ir: Americans knew him, respecting him, vaulted hint for his attention to the duties of the ofiiee. He had! shono through several administrations, watched their changes With interest, given a welcome recep tion to every new minister, had been treated kind ly in return, and bad trained his 'boss" iu the' ctiquettical performances, of preparing fot court. Ho had proved himself quite expert in tho passport to American citizens. But John Y. Mason, a gen tlemnn who'left his French in Virginia, and brought only his prejudices with him, brenme the Ameri can minister who was to astonish tho French court wiih his rtfinement, his brilliancy, his greatness, everything bnt his I'rtnch, the thing mcBt cssentiaD The question of clothes arose, nr.d the good sent of the "nigger" being opposed tof. ggery, n qaar' rel was the result, nnd tho favored negro himself was summarily discharged. Tho following extract from a IcIliT which t ro-' .' ceived from a friend in Paris, a few dairs anOc touches rn the affair; " Our legation here is m sad situation. Tho negro long connected with it , and thoso who was tho main staff of the minister as well iu deplomacy as m tho miuoruutios of tha office, has quarreled with him, nnd l.e has leff. :..'... 1,1.. ., rl.l in,ii.,i ti.

Wa must add. that there seldom is a great foe without a small gain, and, in this instance, nor minister to Kussia became the gainer.

It is hoped tba. Gen. tV'ebb and Mr. Buchanan's remonstrance having f&i.ea inducing Mr. Seymour to proceed to bis pott. the negro will succeed. " 1 A Scocestios.
