Whig majority in the State on the Congres sional vote, full 3GO0. The Question Settled. The House has passed the Texas boundary bill, including a territorial bill for JYcv Mexico, without the Wilmot Proviso. The Proviso we regard of less consequence than the boundary, as Slavery may be excluded without the Proviso ; but it is outrageous to give thousands of miles of free soil to Texas, and pay her ten millions into the bargain ! ' The only excuse for this act is, that there will be civil war without it. We don't believe a word of it; and if true, we don't believe in buying rebellion off: it ia too much like treating a spoilt child to sugar plumbs, in stead of the scripture rule " a rod for the fool's back." We are therefore sorry to say that 24 Northern Whigs voted or this bill: so did 31 Northern locof. The majority of the Northern Whigs voted against the bill, and only 13 Nor thern locos. The majority of the Whigs were right ; the majoiiiy of locus were wrong. We shall give their names next week, aa a keep-sake for future use. The Vermont delegation voted right nnan imously Ao. The California bill, we aro glad to .say, was passed by a grand majority 150 to 57, after the rejection of the amendment to give half of it to Slavery. The Vermont delegation right a gaiu unanimously Aye. The Utah bill was also passed, but by a close vote 97 to 85. Vermont delegation unanim ously A. Nothing now remains to be acted upon, touch' ing Silvery, but the bill to abolish tho slave trade in the District of Columbia, which will probably pass without much oppos.tion. fXyThc Vermont Patriot ia endeavoring to slide itself and the coalitionists back into the ranks of tho old line, by classifying the old liners and coalitionists under one name as "demo crats. Theru is then no "fiee soil" party, no "free democracy," according to the Vermont Patriot. Well it is pretty much used up, as might have been expected when Eastman, Bar ber and ViUs got the management of tho con ecru. It is to be seen wiieihcr the old line will commit suicide, by taking them back. RICHMOND. We are told that the voters of Richmond, after voting allTuesday night for a representative in vain, assembled again Wednesday forenoon and made choice ol lidin D Mason Esq., High Democrat, to represent the town for the ensuing year. Uurhngton Sentinel. Mr. Mason's chincc fur a seat on such an election is not good enough to warrant us in en tering his name on the roll.

Objections made. Mr. Green n.oved the suspension of the rules, whxh was agreed to, and the resolution adopt ed. On motion of Mr. Boyd, the Texas Boundary bill was made the special order of the day for every day at twelve o'clock, until it shall be disposed of. Mr. Stanton of Ten n., asked leave to introduce a resolution for the adjournment of Congress on the 4th Monday of September. Objection being made, he moved the suspen sion uf the rules butthe motion did not prevail. 104 to 60 not two thirds. Mr. Vandyke asked leave to introduce a reso lution, instructing the committee on Ways and Means to report, as speedily as possible, a bill to modify our present revenue laws, and to in crease the duties on foreign articles which curue in competition with our own products, so as to give lair and reasonable protection to the labor and industry of the country, and that such duties be made specific wherever it is practicable to do so. Objection being made, motion was made to suspend the rules, which was disagreed to yeas 89, nays 97. Mr. f restou King asked leave to oiler a reso lution n.siruciin tne committee on Ways and Means to leport a bill making the duties spe cific, and equal to the ad valorem at the time the Tariff bill, in 1840, became a law.

The bill to create tne offico ot Sur veyor General ot Public Lands in California. and to grant donations to actual settlers tiieicoo, was taken up, and the various amendments re ported by the Committee on Public Lauds were ill-posed uf. Mr. Davis, ol .Mass., moved an amendment. giving the President of the United States pow er to exclude from the lands to be granted to settlers, such territory as be may think expedient to reserve for military and naval purposes. Air. Douglas showed that this amendment would tanotion previous acts of army otEceis, by which improved lands in Astorii have been seized and appropriated without compensation to the use of the United btates. Mr. Davis coniended that the settlers had no ri"lit to the land, and that the trovernment in living away the lands had a perfect right to re erve hat they chose. The debate was continued until 1 o'clock, when the bill was laid over until tomorrow. On motion of Mr. Clay, the bill to abolish the slate trade in the district of Columbia was taken up. Mr. Clay briefly explained and advocated the bill. Its object was to abolish the foreign slave trade in the District, the bringing of slaves and placing them in depots here, nut for the pur pose to sale in the District, butlorsileand ship ment to Southern States. The bill did not pro pose to interfere in tho lesst decree with th sale of slaves by one inhabitant of tho District to another, nor 10 prevent such inhabitant going out of the District to purchase slaves for his own use in the District; 11 was in fact a simple revival of the law of Maryland upon ihU subject, as that law existed at the time of the cession of a portion of her territory for the seat of govern- inpnt it nn4 Rimnlv tn pxrtnrli n tmftir in tha District, which had no connection whatever with that District, its only enect upon which was to brimr upon it the ouium which attaches to that trade, which has been condemned and denounc ed to ollcn and so justly. Alter some verba! a- mendinents, proposed by Mr. Clay, had been adopted, Air. r oot moved a substitute lor the bill, plac nt; the entire subject under the control and di rection of the corporate authorities. Mr. Hunter opposed the bill as the bcxinnini; of a series of measures of aggression upon the South, and as unconstitutional. Us referred to tho celebrated case of Graves rtrjiu Slaughter observing, that Mr. Ciay then as counsel arg ued with much ability and force that Congrets under the p.ier to regulate commerce, has uo right to prohibit any branch of it, and contend ing that if his argument was then a good one, it establi.-hed the unconstitutionality of this bill ; so also with an argument made on the same case by Mr. Webster till the Supreme Court ruled a gainst these gentlemen. But he contended that they did not overrule upon the points represent ed by them, upon which he Hunter relied in his opposition to the bill. Ue feared that tins measure as but an entering nedge to the abol ition of the slave trade between the States. It would encourage a species of sentimental legis lation which would result in disastrous conse quences, lie had the kindest feelings towards the black race, and would do whatever he could to promote their comfort, consistent with what he owed to his own race. Mr. Pearce moved an amendment to the a mendment giving the authorities of tbo district power to enforce the authority conferred on them by tho bill. Mr. Clay briefly replied to Mr. Hunter, that this was the last of a series of measures leport cd by the Committee of Thirteen. It did not look at all to the abolition of slavery in the dis trict, as Mr. Hunter had intimated. Tbo Com mittee had no such design, and his own opinion was, that its effect would be quite contrary. He contended that the Senator had no right to cite the arguments made in the cose of Graves and Slaughter. The question was not what did the counsel argue in behalf of their clients, but what did the Court decide to be the Constitu tional law ? The decision was against the po sition assumed by the Senator from Virginia. Mr. Clay also made some genera! rcuuiks iu support of the bill aa a constitutional and ap propriate measure, and expressed his sincere desire that it should pass without additioual a mendmeut. Mr. Foote accepted Mr. Pearce's amendment, Mr. Downs booed that the Senate would not 1 waste its time in the discussion of the amend- ment to this bill, but would dispose of it at once, . aud proceed to the other important business of the country, lie did not Consider this measure pressing or important, and moved that it be post poned until Tuesday next. Mr. Clay thought that lime would be saved by acting on this bill now, and asked the yeas and nays on tne motion to postpone. Mr. Foote advocated immediate action. A portion of his amendment was designed to afford proper means for the punishment of acts, such as those recently perpetrated by Cnaplin. The motion to postpone was rejected yeas 23, nays 27. Mr. Pearce moved to amend the original bill, by the addition of provisions imposing sev ere penalties for inducing, aiding, or abetting the escape of slaves, or harboring runaways. lur. viajr aam uiu provisions oi uie aiuenu- ment were very proper ia themselves, and he I would heartily support them, If presented as a separate measure, out be hoped that in this act having for its single object the abolition of the' lave trade, the Senate would not, at this late period of the session, attempt to embrace a Code of Black Laws. Mr. Pearce opposed the bill, contending that the slave trade does not exist in tho District by law. After further debate, the question was taken upon Mr. Pearce's amendment, and adopted by yeas 4i, nays l.. Mr. k oote then withdrew his amendment, ami the Senate adj. House. Sir. Strong, from the Committee on Rules, .reported a resolution authorizing thn Clerk to contract with Mr. French, formerly the Clerk, to compile and prepare a parliamentary annual, for the use of the members, and he show, ed the importance of such a work. Tha resolu tion was laid on the table. The special order, beinsr the Texas Botindnr bill, was then taken up. Messrs. Daniel, of North Carolina, and Vr. Dowell of Virginia, made speeches against th W ilmot Proviso. Mr. Holmes contended that there was an error in the formation of the Constitution it should have provided for a balance of sections as n ell as an equality of Slates, and from this proceed ed to show how majorities may act detrimental!? to the interests of the South. He urged that no Southern country -has ever flourished without slave labor. Mr. Williams obtained the floor, but "ave wer to Mr. McClernand, who withdrew the motion heretofore make by him to commit the bill and amendment to the Co.nmiltee of the Whole on the state of the Union, and with this fell Mr. Kool s instructions to report the Wilmot Proviso. Air. Williams moved the previous question. Several questions of order were raised, and in reply to a gentleman, the Speaker said if the the previous question was sustained, it would bring the House to a vote, first in Committee; if that failed, on the amendment pending. Mr. Giddinirs renewed the motion to re-com. mit the bill, but the Speaker said the motion was no' in order. Mr. Featherstone appealed to Mr. Williams to withdraw the demand for the previous ques tion. He wanted to offer a substitute for the bill itseU. The Speaker, in reply to Mr. Schenck, said that if the previous question should be sustain ed,tbere will be no chance of amending the bill. Air. Carter moved thai the House adjourn Lost, yeas 48, nays 132. The House refused to second the demand for the previous question yeas 76, nays 92. There was great conlussioH in the hall. Mr. McLine then mo Jed to commit the bill to ihe Comimttee of the Whole on the State of the Union. M.-.Root I renew the instructions on the Wilmot Proviso. Mr McLane said he was anxious to ascertain I the strength of tho bill as it now stands, and hi moved the previous question. 1 Mr. Preston Kintr said if the previous cues- , 'ion was ordered on motion to commit, he hid no objection, it on the question on the bill he had. The Speaker again stated the effect of th? previous question, if seconded. Before further action, on the motion of Mr. Vinton, at A o'clock, the H juse adj. Wednesday. Sept.-!. Senate.
