FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, Jan. 5. We are now looking for the responses of the Legislative bodies in Hie Northern States, to the resolutions of the Slate Leg islature of the Souih. on iie subject of Isvery. The message ol Governor Fish, of New-York, now commands attention, because he is supposed to represent the sentiments, not only oNie Whig party ol New-York, but also a very large portion of . the Democratic party of ,l,e Empire State. Ii commands attention, also, be cause New-Yoik is the most populous of j the States, and ihe most influential ol nil the Northern States; a State loo, which tolerated slavery, until within some twenty years, and whose earlier settlers, the Dutch, re entitled to the credit, lor being the first importers of slaves from Africa into the A tnerican colonies. Governor Fish's mes sage is moderate in its lone, but it claims, on political grounds, an exclusion ol slave ry from California, and other portions of Northern Mexico, and it asserts that the people or the Empire Stale, are opposed , to the extension ol slavery into the newly acquired territories. The Message in fact asserts, thai under no circumstances will he assent of the people of New York be given, to the extension of slavery into these territories, from which it is now excluded. have no doubt that similar sentiments , itul in a manner less conciliatory, will be Expressed by all the Northern Legislatures. But it is to be noticed that no Governor ora Northern State, and no Legislature ol a Northern State will undertake to say, thai livery is to be abandoned in the District b! Columbia, or that ihe internal traffic in and transportation of slaves should he pro. hibited. or that the constitutional provision for the arrest and recovery of fugitive slaves ahall be annuled. The prospect is, that Congress will not legislate at all, upon these subjects, at this aession. Cor. Char. Cour.

The exports amounted to the large sum of 8145,755,820. The 1 domestic exports alone reached Ihe sum of $132,666,955. Our exports to England amounted to 869,101,992, or nearly one half of the entire exports of the country. Two-thirds neatly of ihis amount were ex ported in American vessels. In addition to this, we sent to Scotland exports in value 33,549,960. Ireland 83.916.312, British " East kidies 8332.9C2. British Guinea . $662,415, British West Indies nearly four ..' millions, British American Colonies three millions and a half, so that our export trade With the countries, of Great Britain and j dependencies amount to over eighty-four i million of dollar. To the British West; . Indies the erporls are almost entirely in, " - American vessels, to the British colonies one third, and lo Canada more than one 'iVfjir. Our exports lo France reached g 12,- , -000,000, of which over ten millions were I v ia Araerieaa vessels.

The Washington correspondent of ihe N. York Tribune, has the following statement in reference to the dissatisfaction felt by Mr. Cobb's friends, in relation to the or. ganizalion of some of the Committees: "The Speaker of the House ol repre sentatives has created more dissatisfaction among his own party friends from ihe South, in the lormation he has given sev eral ol his Conimiitees, than has yet been expressed by any ol the Whii'S." The appointment of three notorious Abo liiionisisGiddinas, Allen and Hoot, on Ihe three important coiiiniiiie' s ol th- Judicia ry, Territories and D:lru:l of Columbia, surprised us not a lime, and we have been patiently wnitins to see what the organs of the democracy at the South, who have been so vociferous in their nflecied devotion to the South, would say on the subject. But as yet, no murmuring of discontent has escaped ihe:n some even of the most blustering, have expressed themselves per fectly satisfied Willi t lie constitution of the committees. This is not at all strange to uo, for we have long been satisfied that these brawling demagogues only sought to make political capital out of the slavery question; hence any act performed by a Demociat must be ncquieed in silently if not approvingly; while il a Whig had been guilty of th" same act. the thunders of their denuncia tions would reverberate through the country lor months. No term of invective or re. prone Ii would he too strong to have I rpplied lo a Whig Speaker who hail con stituted those rommi'iees as Mr. Conn Iris. It may be that the intelligent nu n ol the South may beguiled yet n Imle longer with the hypocritical professions of these dem agoaues, who nfleci such devotion to her rights and institutions, hut we greatly mistake the tone of public sentiment if their career is not a short one. The Free Banki.no System The Siate of Tennessee, it would seem, is about to adopt the Free Banking system, now in operation in this Stale. The outline of the system is stated as follows: An association of person", or a single one, purchases 100,000 or more of Stale slock. This is deposited with a f. ommiisi.ir.er of Comptroller, appointed for the purpose, who shall cause to be ensraved and prin ted at ihe expense of the party npplyins, notes of the nature of bank notes to the amount of said stock, (in some projects only 90 percent, of such stock,) counter sinned by himself", and lo he signed by the officers of ihe bank wherp the same nre payable. Then follow various provisions ofspcutity. The advantases to the banker is as follows; He draws his interest on the State stock deposited, say 5 per cent., and loans nut the notes based on this slock at 0 or 7 per cent. sufficient lo hear ex penses of banking home, officers, &e, The security lo the note holder is, that the Comptroller will be always able lo pay the whole issue in State or U. S. stock, the law so euardins P""ttl a nreater issue than is provided for by il. This sys tem, while it is the most saTe of any yet devised for the note holder, is more profit hie lo the banker, and more hrneficinl to the country, by making Ihe State stock a safe circulating currency capital for Ihe business of the tieople. The Tennessee bill provides a payment ol 25 cents on every 8100, for school purposes in lieu of every other State lax. Mission or the Wiiio Partv. We copy the following sentiments, which nre as just as they are happily expressed, from iIip Oifdensbtirg Forum; "The mission of the Whig partv is identified with the high hopes and aspira tions of the great intellects of llie age. It embrace-a those thought and sentiments which burn in the bosom of patriots and nhilanlhrotiists. Improvement. "Eccel- sior," is their motto. They seek to de vdope tbe natural resources of our soil, to facilitate social intercourse and commerce by improvements in communications; to pimuoie the advancement of skill and in dustry by suitable protection and encour-gemr-m; to expand the human mind by ample lacilitiei for acquiring knowledge and llie protection of bis rights in life, lib erty and properly. And, fcllow-cilizens, ire not these objects worthy of your seri ous regard and attention worthy of the name you inherit of the ancestry you boast? If tuey are, give them your sup port, and let it not be said that any personal disappointments or private griefs have alienated or even cooled the ardor of a Whig elector. We saw a chap on Thursday morning, a sir der. dangling, pale face boy, about 10 years of age, standing inside a sugar hogshead, hands in pocket, and licking Ihe sides of the hogshead.

I take no part in the general question of the relative claims of either of the three sections of ihe State. My purpose is to show that it is the duty of all to aid each other, that they have a common interest, and that instead of creating burdensome taxation, a judicious system of internal im provement will increase the wealth and resources of the Snite. I have made East Tennessee my study, and proposed lo illus trate my views in tefrrence to that section, because the same lacts are, to some extent, applicable to Middle and West Tennessee. II iheir proilueijors are ni-. the t.noe, ihe same fnds are more or less applicable to the condition of each.

The re turns of the census of 1810 cive as the an nual product 10,20!),08 bushels of corn; 1,341,713 bushels of wheat; 21 3, 1 7.5 neat beef cattle, and 733.192 hogs.
