The Ko"uth resolution passed ihe Senate lost evpningby m vote of thirty three to six, at I informed you by telegraph. It passed in ihe form proposed by Mr. Seward, as a joint resolution of Congress, welcoming Kussulll to llie Capilcl and the country. A debute sprung up in the Hntie the other day, upon the policy of the grants n( " public lands to the new Siutes fur ihciT Rail Roads. This policy is now so well estab- lished that it will bo difficult to resist it. Large grants will bo made this session, it it supposed. The old States, by way of rcc'ivlng a 1:110 share in ilia benefits of the publie domain, mny possibly combine their influence in favor of some grants fur their own improvement. flcxt week Mr. Foole will, as he lis given notice, nrge his eompmnsise resolution.

We are members of one great fmiily; we re traveling the same road, and shall ar rive at Ihe same goal.

Mr. Po"te'e resolution confirming the Compromise will crime Up today, and Mr. Fuote has but four working days left of the lime which he had assljned for hts contin uance at his post in the Senate. Ho will press his proposition With his oeci)9tomed ardor, and endeavor to reaflh his great ob ject a Vote oft it by J'eas snd nays in full Senile. His purpose is, as he has stated in his remarks, to obtain a vote on the sub ject of the Fugitive Slave measure to obtain a renewed pledse of the faithful ex ecution of that net from Senaiors of the non-slaveholdiiiS Slates. That is the main object of his resolution, as he states, for he considers thnt the other adjustment meas ures have been carried into cxpeuiion( and are beyond ijuesilort. After Mr. Rhett and others hall have spoken, a motion will be made to lay Ihe subject an the table, with doubtful success; for while there are many Senaiors who are opposed io retriving the question, or to recording their votes either in approval or condemnation or the Com promise measures, there aie some slso who covet the opportunity to give a vote direct ly Hgainst them, or for them. The number of parties and interests rep resented in the Senate will afford a source of 0 flood of debates, for a long session, even should not new questions arise, to furnish a fresh supply o( material. There are also thrf e permanent candidates for the next Presidency In the Senate, Gen. Hous ton, Gen. Cuss, nnd Juibe Douglas, and also the representatives of nt least five oili er candidates, and none of these will be snnrin" of words or of lirciects. - 1 n The rumor is revived, and with some plausibility, that Mr. Fillrnote intends to withdraw himself, by some public declara tion, from the Presidential contest, thus leavina his friend Iree to lake up any olher candidate who may represent their princi ples and interests. The inte tests of commerce will receive, at this session, special attention from Con sress. Several appropriations for deepen ing channels, nnd improving harbors, and removing obstructions from Ihe navisation of rivers may be expected at this sessin. Mr. Corwin has not yet presented his Treasury report in consequence of indis position. The value of the Cotton exported during the last year, I stated the olher day to have been ascertained b; correct returns, to be 812,50 per hundred pounds. I now find that the averaae Cost was 12 16-100 cents a pound. The quantity was 2,003,507 bales, averaging 444 pounds a bale. The amount and cost do 1101 exceed ihe first re turns of ihe Collectors, which was thought to be exaggerated or erroneous. The amount of Cotton exported was. therefore, over 8 U 1.000.000. Mr. Clay was well enough to attend the Supreme Court on Friday, and on Monday he will, il Ins health permit, close the ar gument in an important Kentucky case, in which he is counsel. The Christiana trials have resulted, as was expected, in the acquittal of those ar raigned from the charge of treason; but ihey are to be nied by ihe State CouMs on lite charge of riot and murder. It is quite necessary that the laws of ihe United Slates defining crimes intended to be nude punishable, and prescribing the punishment to be inflicted, should be revised and per fected. The President urgently recom mends this in his inessige. Cor. Char. Cour. D iston, Dec. II. TsnRiet.B Mukoek. An insane man, nann-d Carrigan, living seven miles from St. Johns, N.

Henuv Clay's Health. The Fotbre Horace Grcely, ihu ardent friend and admirer of Henry Clay, writes as follows. Who will not read it with a fueling of sor row? Wasitinoton, Dec. 3. 1951. Henry Cln? did not attpnd the sitting of yesterday and I did not see him in the Capitol to-diy. JjiH, seein? him in his own room, I wa pained by his neral ap pearance.

Clny'ii determination is .1xd and unalterable, that no persuasion or enlreavty shall induce him to be: njain a candidate for ihn presidency.

The Rio Giiande Frontier A new phae in the revolutionary movements on the oilier side of ihe Riu Grande, presents itself. Tho Rio Grande City correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune, under date of No" vember 22. communicates ihe fact that Gen. Jaurrqui, with a force of 030 mixed soldiers and Seminole, nnd two pUces of artillery took up his quarters in the Plaza of Mier the night previous, and commenced fur'i'ying the town. Carvujal had despatched a cour ier to Rio Grande City, with orders and men who might be on this side of ihe river, to join him at once. Gen. Carvujal marched through Camargo on the morning of the 22ci wi ll -'HO cavalry and 100 infantry for Mier lie would he joined in the evening by about S00 111 on from Rio Grande City, Alamo and K 1,111a.

Elegant Comparison The following beautiful extract we find floating like a waif upon the waters: "The American Constitution Like one of those wondrous rorkius stones reared by ihe Druids, which the finger of a child might vibrate 10 lis centre, yet Ihe might of an army could not move from 11s place, our consiiiurion is nieelv poi-ed that it seems to sway with every breath of pas sion, yet so firmly based in ihe hearts and afTeclions of Ihe people, lhat Ihe wildest storms of treason and lunaticism break over it in vain. California Milking. It requires two or tliree men 10 milk a California cow. They set to work on horseback, and first lasso her, and tumble her lo the ground. They tie her head to a post, and then bind her feet together tightly in pairs.

You may rely upon your present poessin, or on your future prospects; but the riches may fly away, or Hopes may be blighted; and if you have no place of your own, iu such ease ten to one you will find your path beset with thorns. Waal may come opon you before you are aware of it, and. baring o profession, you find yourself in anything but an enviable condition. It is therefore important lhat you should be something. Don't depend upon fortune, forsh is fickle support, which often fail when you lean opon ber with h greatest confidence. Trust to your own zeruoo. Desolation. A 11 immigrant just arrived across the p ains r iveg the following decep tion of the memorable jarnado del uiucrlo" on which so many thousands of animals nnd so many persons of tho lost year's emigra tion perished ! If there is n section of country in God's wide-extended creation that can surpass that largo scope of country lying between Suit Liko Vallev on! Cnr-on river for sterility of soil, scurcity of timber, and every thing that has a tendency to cheer up the spirits of the we iried traveller. I am sure that I don't care to see it. From the sink of Humboldt rier acros the desert 10 Carbon river my heart was sickened at seeing the great destruction of property, viz: wngons. carriages and buggies, dead horses, mules, and catlle whose carcasses lio thick all over the ground in a stale of preservation, the sain and a 01111.I deal of the flesh being dried to the bones the water, iiiarshns, ami air boing so strongly mprcgnaied wild alkali that il 'baa a tendency to keep off ihe devouring prjscets and birds of prey.

There ore few families, we imagine, any wl.cre, in which love is not n bused as furnishing a license Tnr impoliteness. A husband, father, or brother, will speok harsh words to those whom he loves the best, simply because the security uf love and family pride keeps him from getting his head broken. It is a shame that a man will speak more impolitely, at times, to his wife or his siier, than he would c'nre to nny female, except a low vicious one. It is thus that the holiest nirectiohs of man's nature prove tu bo a weaker protection to woman in the fjtnily circle, than the restraints of society; and that a woman, usually, is indebted for the kindest politeness of life to thosu not bo longing to her household. Things ought nut so to be. The man who, becauso it will not '.e resented, inflicts his spleen and bad tempisr upon those of his hearthstone, is a small coward and a very mean man. Kind wods are the circulating medium between irue gentlemen nnd trim Indies, nt home, and no polish exhibited in society enn atone for tho hard and disrespectful treatment too often indulged in between Ihosa bound to gelhnr by God's own ties of blond, nnd the still more tacred bonds of conjugal love. Sign of Character. A man who ha bitually speaks disparagingly of the female 'character gives conclusive evidence that there is something wrong in his own, and also shows the class of IjhuIch with whom ho has been in the habit of associating. A true man alwr.ys has a high ideal of female excellence, and cherishes it with a rcp ct bordering on worship. Wo must perhaps make some allowance for old bachelors who cannot get wives. Intemperance in Scotlanp. Rev. Dr. M'Clelland, late Professor in lite Reformed Dutch Theological Seminary, at Nw.Eruns. wick, is writing a series of very interesting letters to ihe Christian Intelligencer, from Scotland, in one of A-hich he says : 'Scotland expends in one year, at least snvemy five millions of do lar in guzzling. With less than throe millions of people, they expend everv year d"iihle the revenue of ihe American Government drink more than would suppor; a hundred thousand misi"narie. and more than would raise her whole Gffilic population from mi-ery and degradation, with millions lo spare." Stephen Hall, a queer genius had made frequent promises to Ins) troubled friend, that he wou'd put an end to bims!f. One stinging euld night, he vowed he would go out and frPe2 lo death.
