Some of the opposition papers whicli had commended Mr. Webster so highly for his great speech in behalf of the Union, suhse ipien'ly manifested much nlarn least he should recede frmn iho high ground ho had taken, It may have been that the desire wns In 'her to the thought. Ue that as it ir.sy.it isipntu evident that there was no necessity for the extreme nervousness of some of hi.' Democratic culogizers on the iccasj iu. Mr. Webstorisn.it tho man to iniij ground hastily, nor recede from il when once taken. In this connrclion, we copy the following paragraph, from the Charleston Courier, of the :21-t: The Hun, Daniel .U'ebsler.h will be seen by one of our Washiiiginn letters that this disi ingui-lieil statesman stands firm in iii-1 posftiui! he has both advocated and voted f r Mr. Soule's nmemlmenl, declar ing that New Mexico nnd Utah, when fur meil iuio Slates, shall come in'u the Union, wi h or without slavery as their constitu tions shall severally proscribe. The galle ries applauded him whin he reiterated his intention to persevere in the course required of him (to use his own words on tho oceni si-.n) by eiiuouness and steadiness of purpose;" and, the passage of tho amend ment, by tho largo and gratifying voto if lid lo I'd, wns doubtless greatly owing to the bold and determined attitude of this Co lossus of ihe Senate. Wo may even sny thnt ho has taken a step forward; for, while adhering ill the main, lo his previously ex pressed opinions onanist the extension of tdiivery, except so far as required by tho an nexation compact with Texas, ho declared that, if ho qualified thoso opinions nt nil, It was lo nckuewledgu that "A'l 'hat is Tex as, is, by tho legislation if ll.o, thrown under iho general character of Texan Tcrri. tore nnd if, for want of defining the boundaries of Now Mexico, by any proceed- j ing or process, or by any events, hereafter, any portion which he and others did not be.' lievo 10 bo Texas should be considered to b"comu Texas, then so far ho. qualified his remark of March 7th," viz; "that every fnut of tho Territory of the United States has now a fixed cliarneter for slavery or no slavery." After this, wo moy well regnrd Mr. Webster's fugitive slnve bill, concocted in February last, nnd lately brought to light, as a tub thrown to the Northern whale, and we hope il.o monster may be allowed to play with it ad libitum. Rf.v, LorEz, Sumo of Ihe presses, and a portion, a very small one wo hope, of the people in some of the cities, are disposed to make o homo tipd lion of the 'iliuslriou' Lopez. Wo cannot see any thing con nected with the lata expedition that ought not rather to bring disgrnce than praise up. on him. The following paragraph, from the Florida Sentinel, is to tho point on the subject. Thnt paper srys: The getters up of this expedition are everywhere overwhelmed with Inudntioiis l.y (ho public presr! What evidence is there of the purity of the mo tives of tho lenders uf this expedition! What evidence that they sought liberty for tl.o people of Cuba, rather than revenge and plunder on their own account? And surely, if we concede the justice and pat li itisui of their objects, some mercy and bowels of compassion one hi to restrain the American press from pulling up such des perate adventures ond adventurers, and in ducing hundreds of well meaning citizens lo peril their necks upon such entcrprizes. Tim New York Sun, in particular, has a fearful responsibility in this business, and ought to tli'.w that il has clean hands Men may shout over liberty fo Tuba, and get drunk over it in the bar rooms of" New York or Savannah, without much harm to any body; but when, by a course of mis representation or facts, they persuade other people tu peril their lives on n rash and hopeless undertaking, they are jusily amenable to something inoro than a headache. Getting jealous of a woman is sure lo put the devil in her head, if he wasn't there before. We never saw a wife charged with doing wrong without her being guil ty of it m a week. If you fear that things are going on ill, the best method you can pursue is to get up a counter irritation, and make her jealous of you. As for blowing your brains out with a pair of bellows, or hanging yourself with a trammel, don't thiuk of it. The grand levee in ihe Parish of Point Coupee broke loose on the 10th, sweeping every thing before it, destroying houses, slock, &.C., Irom Point Coupee to Ber wick's Cay.

The proceedings of-Congress, during the last week, have been very interesting; still, not much progress has bepn made in the adjustment hill. In the House, amend ments have been discussed and the South ern men have timed the division of the ten rilory hy the parallel of thitty six thirty. .Mr. Soule ollered nn amendment, in the Semite, on Saturday, which, if it pass, will render the adjustment hill prelerahle, in the opinion of some of Ihe Southern men, to tho Missouri line, at least so far ns regards ihe territory east of California. The amendment provides that the territories may be admitted ns slaveholding Suites if llieir people so determine. Mr, Clay has expressed his purpose, it is said, lo retire from the Senate as sunn as his adjustment hill shall pass. lie does not intend, herealter, to lake nny part in ihe demonstration in favor of a revival of the American system. Washington, June 10. The information from New-Orleans iliat the Captain General of Cuba has released the Contoy prisoners, gives great satisfac tion here. Il was previously known that the Spanish Minister, who is an enlight ened and humane man, had recommended Iliat course. Mr. Clayton was, hy no means, confident of n favorable result, even after he had dispatched his letter of the 1st lo Gen. Campbell, advising the Count ol Alcoy iliat if hs shed a drop of American blood unjustly, it would provoke a sangui nary war. The letter Wes dispatched to Havana by Ihree different channels, so as lo ensure its enrly reception, and it is pre sume,! thnt it hastened the action of Ihe Spanish Government. This Government will thus he confirmed in its policy in re gard to Cuba, and lestrain those subject lo its laws from hostile expeditions against it. This mailer being at rest, the next thing to he talked of is ihe affairs of Si. Domin go, and Ihe probability that an expedition will be organized in Cuba or in the United States, for the relief of the Dominican; and the conquest of t lie Ilaytiens.
