He produced a decided im pression on the Senate. We are approach- in the crisis.

He never had a greater subject; and, in some passages, he rose to sublimity. Mr, Butler's allu sion lo il was very happy. In alluding to a possible conflict, be said "I kn-v where m allegiance will be." Mr. Clay had, in Ihe most lofiy strain of eloquence, disclaimed allegiance to the South. Mr. Butler urged the Senate to retain the propositions before Ihem for debate, and to Rive every one an opportunity to express his views. Afterward, the Sen ate would be the better prepared lo devise some scheme for the occasion. We are in a common ship, and he, and all must Strive to prevent the wreck.

The following preamble and resolution were adopted by the late House of Repre sentatives a lew moments prior to adjourn llient: U'ltrrrtm, much lime and ingenuity has been exliatl-ued ilurini Ihe present r.ession ol the General Assembly, in devising n plan of Internal Improvements likely to be acceptable, if not to all, at least to n majority of the Representatives of the people, nnd nil such ell'orts have proved a lamentable failure, and a it is desirable that this Legislature should not adjourn without a manifestation ol some ceueral and popular sentiment connected with this sreal nubj"Ci, therelore, to test ihe sense of this liouse, 7Jc it fWeci.That n Railroad is a good thing in the abstract. Jusis.1 them' 'um. "A railroad is a good thing in the abstract!" Bute leiisla tion is "a pond thing in the al stract" speeches lor Buncombe are "good things in ihe abstract" and "four dollars a day and roasl beef" aint bad to take. What a world of meaning in that little resolution II is deep, nnd broad, and comprehen sive enough to embrace all lhat was said or done on Ihe subject of Interna! Improve ments during; the late protracted session. Ami if ii bad onlv been nassed at ihe com mencement, what mountains TRtbor would have bepn saved bow many anx ious hours of toil would have been avoided! And how many spasmodic throes members would have ben spared! But the genius that conceived it, like many others, was a little loo late for any practical purpose. Yes, ii was a little too late; yet the resolu tion itself is a "good thing in the abstract." Yes it'a that wny a9 a famous friend of ours says, by way of emphasizing his as sertions. ''Railroads are good things in the abstract" so nre petticoats but not "in the concrete." Hurrah for "ihe ab stract" Our defunct friend "Pry" could'nl have beaten that if he had gone through a regular process of incubation. Tun Nor.Tii ami S'oc th.

Hard to Beat The following is said to be an extract from a Railroad speech re :enlly delivered somewhere in Alabama, by Rush Montgomery, Esq., of Chatta nooga. If Parham don't take down his sign and retire after reading it, we would like lo know the reason why. After a very pathetic exordium, the speaker is reported to have continued as billows; "Nevpt eentler.ien, never let il ho said, so long as ihe vasl Mississippi shall roll the t'lndilv waters of a thousand irihuiaries ibroui;h the sen cirt shore of Louisiana Slate so bins ,is the rounding, sounding, bounding Ninara shall loam and mar nnd curl hk water into the cavern of the tcr raqueous earth so long as the transluce'il queen of niulil shall perambulate thiouch ihe diaphanous firmament on high all monuments ofcreative power never, gen tlemen, let It lie said that Alabama oppos e l this railroad but rather light down all opposition lo ii, like L-ouidas nt the bead ol his brave Unmans, when he whipped the Greeks in the streets of Thermopylae. Let inleroal improvements be promulgated until ihe " iron horse" is seen snorting forth (ire a::d stiare. brimstone in every nei.'hhoibnoil, and the very wolf forgets to shake bis tail in the brpeze!" Thus, says the correspondent of ihe Ala bama Times, concluded the Chattanooga orator, and the meeting vanished. CiiATTtNoooA Advertiser. We have received the (irst number of a paper with the above liile, published at Chattanooga by L. N. &. T. J. Eoud, nnd edited by J. W. Eciin. Ii is a large sized sheet, nraily printed, and lmue.r.uic in politics. We wish Ihe proprietors great success i I heir business; but must suggest to them to be very careful in regard to orthography, punctuation, kc, as their cotemporary ol ihe Gazette is a gentleman of nice critical perceplions, and if he once let's down on them they will wish themselves back again among the hills ol old Warren. Again, il in the course of events, Ihey shoulJ come in conflict with htm, we must insist ll;.4t they treat hint with great ten dernefs Parhnnl is one of the pioneers of Chattanooga, having located there with his press when all oulsiJa was n howling wilderness, and nought within sive ttag- nant ponds and pools lilled with green eyed croakers. lie took it into his special keeping in its infancy, and watched ovei and nurtured il until it has grown to its present magnificent proportions. When he first espied it from Ihe bow of the flat boat in which h'inself nnd chattels floated down the "noblest tributary ol ihe Missis' sissippi," it was but as a feeble glimmer, like an t'nus faluut burning over quag mires, rottenness and coriuplion, but he has fanned and coaxed it until it shines forth a bright and brilliant lijjit, as a city seton a.lull side, causing us vivifying nnd genial rays of trade and commerce to peue trateall the region round about. (Oh!) We repeat, the Editor of the Gazelle has labored long and arduously lo build up Chattanooga, and we trust thai now when balmly prosperity is beginning to dawn up on ii, he will not be permitted to decline for want of patronage. There is business enough for both papers, and we trust that both will be liberally sustained. Dimes. Our friend. "N. A.

Al com munities are unfortunately afflicted with a few individuals whose sole delight seems lo be in finding fault with every body, as well as every thing that is said or done, nnd making themselves and nil around them as uncomfortable and miserable as possible. Nothing pleases them. Some thing is eternally wrong; rnd looking through reversed glasses ihey continually see imaginary faults in others, yel are ex ceedingly blind to their own imperfections. I! an enterprise is started, ihere is some thing wrong about it it wont do. Every thing is going to wrack, when the proba bility is they dont know one thing of what tbev are prating -md giumbling abnui. If a lady with a new dress passes one of these incorrigible on the street, il furnishps him with a fruitful subject for the indulgence o( his favorite propensity, and what a ser mon he'll prcich you on the extravagance of the times! ''Just look," says old med dlebouse; "silks and satins, furbelows and flounces never do, loo much extrava gancehusband go to the dogs belore long, can't stand it much longer never do oughi'nt to be countenanced," and so on. Your giumbler too is a great declaimer (on ihe streets) against good living. If his neighbor furnishes bis lable with any thing better than small bone bacon and cabbage ftalks, it wont do loo much extrava gance, 'bliged to cave in, can't keep il up and make both ends meet, you'll see. Ano ther characteristic of your grumbler is, he is always complaining of hard timps. Something wrong, never saw such limes, country all going to wrack, taxation and starvation jui abend; when the truth is every man who is willing to labor can pro cure a comfortable subsistence. B it worst of all, your grumbler is generally a '"drone a consumer without contributing one cent lo Ihe general stock. The fact is, if these old inveterates who go about carping nnd fault-finding, and Hying to deprive their neighbors of the few brijrht and green spots which mark life's desert waste, and which all may enjoy if ihey will, would only go to work, nt'end strictly lo their business, and Ipi others do as they please, they would not only render themselves much more comfortable, but acquire ano ther sort of character lo that which ihey now enjoy. In the estimation of all right thinking persons, they are most intolerable pesis and bores, and we would as soon en counter any other disagreeable object as one of these everlasting croakers. Musical Academy. We would invite attention to lite advertisement of Professor Knare.

A tremendous conflagration broke out this morning shortly after midnight, which destroyed nearly Iweiity buildings on Cnmp street, and several in Bank PIiicp. They were niostlv stores. Tht office of the Pic. ayune is among those destroyed, nnd very little of its contents was saved. The total loss will probably reach half a million, nnd is mostly insured in this city. The lire is supposed lo have been the work of nn incendiary. Five Fire Insur ance offices were burned. There was insurance in the New York Sun and Mm lual offices to the amount of 8150,000. Ii is estimated that the total loss will be over a million of dollars. The sab s of Cotton yesterday nmounted in 4000 bales, at steady prices. The sales of the week were 23,000 bales. The re ceipts nre lOi.OOO bales behind the same period last year. A correspondent of the N. Y. Commer cial Metrliscr, wriiing Ironi San Francis co, under date ol 31st Dec. says: "There were one hundred cases of fever on the California, coming up from Panama; iwo proved fatal. There is more suffering, distress or misery here than in all the rest of Ihe United Stales. This ia not only my own opinion, hut lhat of many intelligent gentlemen, long resident here. The burnt district is covered with workmen, and bins fair to be built over in a week. A number of buildings are already completed, and occupied." A certain good deacon's hat blew offand led him a lonrj chase after it through the street. Al length the deacou became ex hausted in the race and pulled up against a post by the side of him. A gentleman came along, lo whom the deacon addressed himself thus -. "My friend, I am a dea con of the church, and it is very wrong fur me to swear; you will therefore greatly oblige me if you will damn that hat for me." Death of the Kentucky Infant. Andrew II. Brand, the Kentucky infant, died of pneumonia a few days since at the residence of his father, in this county, after a short illness.

VALEDICTORY ADDRESSES. Resolution returning the thanks of the Senate to Mr.Speakor (Mr.Fisher in the chair) unanimously adopted. To which resolution Mr. Speaker Henry responded, in substance, as follows: Senators : For the sentiments contained in the resolution you have just adopted, with such unanimity, Innsuagc is too feeble lo convey the thanks and gratitude due the compliment. In accepting the high honor you were pleased to confer, when we first assembled in the capacity as guardi ans of the public interest, it was not without a distiust in regard to my abilities fur the performance of the duties committed to my hands, nnd when Ihe curtain must soon drop upon the last act of our proceedings, 1 can only deplore the past, by regretting that my duties I avc not been more ably performed. Though long conversant with par liamentary law nnd the rules govern- irifr lnlilirrntivn linrlifS. I am too Well acquainted with the imperfections of frail human nature, to suppose no errors have been committed. I am consoled with the reflection, however, that none have been wilfully perpe trated. On each question presented fur my decision, I was governed alone by what I conceived to be equitable and just, having due regard for the rights of each individual mcmbo'-. I pray vou then lo cover mv past imncrlco t;o is with the mantle of charity. There must and ever will he diver- sily of opinion in deliberative bodies on 'important subjects which are pre sented for consideration. On the many complicated questions which have come before you, although each in debate contended for his point with zeal and warmth, I have not only been amused and edified to see intel lect contend with intellect, but nm proud to bear testimony for the due respect you have observed not only for your' presiding officer, but your courteous bearing towards each other. If during the session, I have, by word or deed, in an unguarded mo ment wounded the sensibilities of any Senator, I pray him to consider it unintentional on ir.y part. The polar star for the government, of my action has been a desire to preserve order and decorum, by which the dignitj of the Senate might be sustained nnd preserved, without presuming or de siring to trample on the rights of any. To each of you, respectively, with out distinction, I tender my thanks for your forbearance and assistance given in the discharge of my oificial duties, the kindness manifested, and the lenity by which my errors nnd iin perfections have been homo with, I shall hold in dear remembrance to the latest period of my lifo. Your legislative duties arc now about to eliise. In the discharges of the high trusts committed to your hands ly the sovereign will of the people, I hope the Slate may reap a rich reward, and each of you on re turning to your long nbsont homes, will receive the thankful plaudits of a confiding constituency. In taking leave of yon, probably for the last time, should wo never meet again, permit mo to declare that the social tie founded here in inend ship, shall be nourished nml still have a resting place in my bosom be pleased to except my best wishes for your health nnd Ivnpincss. The Governor bavins officially in formed us he lias nothing more to communicate, nnd having disposed ol cverv thing before us it is now made my duty, as your presiding officer, under the provisions ol the t.onstltti lion, to adjourn this Senate sine die. The two Houses having concluded the business before them, Mr. Nixon moved that the House adjourn sinedic. Mr. Speaker Ilaynes then rose and said : The last official duty which I nm called upon to perlorm. gentlemen of the House of Iteprcscntativcs, is to pronounce tho ndjotirnment of Ibis bmlv without dav. Uut before I pro cecd to the discharge of this dutv, I may be permitted to present to you. individually nnd collectively, mv sin' cere acknowledgments for the flatter ing terms of the resolution in which vou have been pleased to express your approval of my official conduct. On entering upon the discharge of the duties of Speaker. I was aware of the delicate nature of the responsibilities which were assumed. I knew that no legislative body could be entirely exempt from those feelings of excite ment which aic incident to conflicting opinions in regard to State policy. But I nm glad to learn that whatever of ill-feeling which may have been engendered, in this body, has passed away with the moment that gave it birth, and lhat we can separate as a band of brothers. Much has been done, gentlemen, during the present session of the Gen eral Assembly, for the benefit of the State ot large, while other proposi tions, of a general character, have failed. Dut it is a duty, which, I pre sume, you all understand lo bow to the authority of tho State with respect and submission. Much has been done in tho way of granting charters to public institutions of the State, nnd much in tho way of reform. Ucso. lutions have been passed for the a mendment of the Constitution, so as to give the Stale an elective judiciary, by"which every citizen, through the ballot box. may find his way up to the highest stations of judicial trust. You have opened a liberal hand to all the charitable institutions of tho State. The Deaf, whose cars have never been saluted by the voice of humanity the IJIintl, who have never seen a mother's face, nor a star of Heaven and the Insane, whose reason has shot from its place like a falling star all have been provided for. You have taken these children of misfor tune, with Ihe fondness of a mother you have drawn them to tho bosom of the public charities and made them to feel that they have n homo nnd an abiding place in their native State. Gentlemen, it is painful to part with you, because I know that, in this world, nil of us shall not meet ngain; but 1 trust that we shall meet in nno ther, and a better world in rt more beautiful city where life shall be end less. I feel, however, that tho pain of parting is to a great extent modi fied by the pleasing reflection that we are soon lo return to tho sweet circle of home where wife and children have their empire where the fires of do mcstio life burn upon the altar of wed ded love where those reside whose office it is to wipe away the tears of sorrow and smooth the brow of care to bring back lo the heart the sun shine of tho spirit nnd to point with tho hand of Hope to a brighter Future I return you, gentlemen, once more, my tnaiiKs for the indulgence ana support which I have constantly re ceived from cverv member of the House of Representatives. Whatever may be my destiny, wherever I may be driven on tho tide of the future, I hall ever cherish the recollections of this dav as the "Greenest spot on Memory's wast." I now pronounce the adjournment of this House without dav. A Sweet DisrovF.ttv.-The Cahocs Cataract savs that "the body of a small negro child wis found in a molasses hogshead in that place, a few days since, afier the molasses was all drawn off. No marks of violence was found upon him. Wo can vouch for the truth of this." The same phenomena have been often exhibited in sugar hogsheads, freshly emptied in this city but tho little neirrocs were alive, licking. Albany Atlas, Fatvt, Fom.v. Joseph Steele, a German, was killed at Rochester last week, under the following circum stances. Three or four men were looking nt and handling a gun which one of them had taken in trade. Two or three caps had been exploded on it, without firing the gun but one of them blew in the muzzle and said it was loaded. Steele siid, whether loaded or not it was good for nothing, and expanded his breast said, "Fire at me." The man who held the gun pulled trigger and the gnu went off; Steele received tho whole contents in his breast, which caused his death almost immediately. Inteiipiietation of Dreams. -To dream of a mill-stone round your neck is a sign of what you may "expect if you get an extravagant wife. To see apples in a dream belokens a wed ding, because where you find apples you may reasonably expect to find pairs. To dream that you nre lame is.a token that you will get into a hob blc. When a young lady dreams of a coffin, it betokens that she should instantly discontinue lacing her stays tightly, nnd always go warmly and thickly shod in wet weather. If you dream ofa clock.it is a token that you w ill gain credit that is tick. To dream of fire is a sign that if you are wise you will see that the lights in your houso nro out before you go to bed. To dream that your iios3 is red nt the tip, is an intimation that you had better leave ofTbiandy and water. Tod ream of walking barefooted de notes a journey that you will maka bootless.
