The National Intelligencer of Tuesday publishes In full the speech delivered by John C. Cslhnun, on the 3d April, 1830, pending the discussion for tlx admission nf Michigan. The main point nf thin speech la a denial nf power in Congress, or in ny State or Terri tory, toconfer the right of suffrage on aliens. The speech, which was not published In the Congressional debates of the dny, and wns first published in full In "Calhoun's Works," lie edited bv R. K. Crnlle, Esq., (Vol, II. pp. 4!)6.) is highly commended by the Intelligencer. Kentucky Legislature. It appears the American party huve s iniijority of one In the Kentucky Semite. Thirteen of Hint party held over, and they have elected seven, mak ing twenty; while only six Democrats held ov-r, m iking, with thirteen tliuy hnve elected, but nineteen. The Democratic mujnrity in the house is eighteen, and on joint ballot seventeen. I-" "Ion," of the Baltimore San, who Is always politically well informed, says that the question who ahull be Speaker of the next Mouse may he considered settled. Nothing, he says, has occurred to render the election of Col. Orr doubtful; but on the contrary it is more certain than it was at the end of the last session. At Peacr with all Mankind. The con dition of nearly all other nations on the globe, remarks n cotemporary, even nt a moment of comparative quiet, should inspire us with a deep sense of our own happy lot. England is ut this moment engaged in two expensive wars, each on a far distant theatre, each re sulting front aggression and ambition, and each draining at the vitals of the people, eith er by loading them down with tuxes at home, or bv offering them as sacrifice abroad; France, tied dirtvn at the foot of a throne, maintained only by arms, her great press muzzled.' her great orators dumb, and her people restrained by s policy which addresses itself to their love of pleasure In every other nation of the old world order is only main tained by the sw ord, and labor is only paid to keep it from starvation. Let us look at the one picture and then at the other. Let us contrast our own peaceful and prosperous people wiih those abroad, who suffer, atarve, and die, and then cease all petty bickerings mid stiifes. Hold Nothing in Contempt. Hold noth ing in contempt nothing contemptable ever came from the hands of the Almighty. The words which the microscope has revealed to ns in the drop of water are as wonderful and mysterious as the bright and beautiful world brought to our eyes by the telescope. The loathsome caterpillar which we long to srusli beneath our feet will one day be a beautiful creature with rainbows for its wings. The little pool ol dirty water into which we have stepped, upon which we pour our "vials of wrath" in many a deepmuttered anathema and malediction for having obscured the glo ry of our bunts, will be woven into s bright and beautiful embroidered veil, on the mi raculous sun, for the luce of the queen w ho trails her robe of light among the countless tars. The perusal and observance of a single book, called the Bible, every leaf of the new portion of which has had a sacred baptism iu the blood of Jesus of Nazareth, will lead the only immortal thing in the uni verse save its Maker out of the shadows and darkness of dust, and fit it fur an audi enco (yea, though it be the soul of a beggar) with the King of Kings. Woiithy of Nom. Daniel Fnnshnw, an old and much esteemed New York printer, recently presented the Typographical Society with two volumes of Pitt's English Alius, printed in London in 1683174 years ago with a statement to the effect that the origi nal coal price of the same, and Interest added to the present time, would anmuut lo more than thirty milliunt of dollars! A New Whitr Hquss The Washing-, ton correspondent of the Press, Col, For ney's new paper, says that "there can be but little doubt that the erection of new Pres idential luuuaioo will be one of the meas ures that will receive the iururable action or the next Congress." The propriety of the measure will not be questioned, we im.g. inn, by any one except those who may have a desire to make way . with the Presidents soon niter their election, (-gTThere were 13 battle fuught during the year 1836, with an average loss of 1,. OUU men iu each; more than 300,000 soldiers are ekliiuuted to have perished by disease nd buttles. The battles average more than one a week. The year 1855 was thus one of the bloodiest years in modern history. l-if Rasuality is on the increaae in the Western States, and the demand for mobs and hemp i looking op. The Southern Convention and Grr. Walker. Just before the close ot the late Southern Convention, at Knoxville, the fol lowing proceedings were had in relation to Cen, Walker and Nicaragua: Re$nlved tt, Thnl it is the sense of this Convention, that the course of Gen. Win. Walker, in Nicaragua, has been highly mer itorious, and that in our opinion the inter ference with his rels ions by the United Slates Muii-nl-Wnr, ''St. Marys" whs uncisj ed for and wrong. Resolved '2l, That this Convention aymps llilzca with Gen. Walker in his attempts un der the express invitation of the provisional government of Nicaragua, to institute a new order of things in that unhappy and distract ed country Retoked 3d, That the policy of Gen. Walker, to introduce a system of African slavery in Nicaragua be approved by this Convention, and that it recommend his enter prise to the serious and earnest considera tion of the Southern States in this Confed eracy. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be transmitter! to the Governors of the sev ers! States here represented, sod lo their rep resentatives in Congress, The question then was taken upon the adop tion of the resolutions, and they were reject ed'by the following vote: Yras Georgia 10, Louisans 6, Alabama 9,-25. Nats Tennessee 12, Mississippi 7, South Carolina 8, North Carolina 10, Virginia 15, Mnrylund 870. Mr. Dobbin. Ex-Secretary Dobbin, who died a few days since at Favettville,North Car olina, says the Fayeltville Observer, was born in 1814, and was in the 44th year of his age. He graduated nt the University of North Car olina, 1832, read law in the office of the late Judge Strange, was eminently success ful nt the bar; was elected to Congress in 1845, and declined a re-election; was elected to the Legislature from bis county In 1848 and 1850: was Speaker of the House of Com mons at the last session, and finally entered the Cabinet as Secretary of the Navy in 1853, serving through the entire Administration of President Pierce, which he did much to ren der successful and popular. Ilis devotion to the arduous duties of that station cost him his lire. He has passed away, but his mem ory will live ir. a community which both honored and loved him, and for whose pros perity his lust public letter breathed the most ardent desire. A Remarkable Votags across the At lantic. The Liverpool Post of July 80th has the following account ol a recent voyage across lite Atlantic, by a yacht of only twenty-three tons: "The arrival nt this port, yesterday, nf the yacht Charter Oak, from New York, furnish es u striking proof of what perseverance can accomplish, and shows to us English the sort of stuff our trans-Atlantic cousins are made of. The Charter Oak is a little vessel, forty eight feet long, eighteen leet wide, five feet three inches deep, and measures twenty-three tons. She was built and rigged by her cap tain and owner, Mr. Webb, iu Connecticut, and by him and one man brought safely across the stormy Atlantic in thirty seven days. She started with the captain and two men, but one of them was unfortunately lost overboard the first day. To most men, this would have been enough to frighten them oil' their perilous enterprise, but our t'vn un daunted navigators, (one of whom h (i never been at sea before,) were not to be frighten ed. Without a chronometer, (for no one would trust one in so frail a conveyance, and the captain was too poor to buy one, (with out a chart ortheesostthev wr- steeiin. for, the two men pursued their dangerous way through several storms, and reached Liver pool in the time mentioned." A Kicking Party. A party of gentlemen, in Massachusetts, being attracted by the cry for help of a lady whom a ruffian had insulted, chased him, dragged him out of the river in to which for refuge he find waded up to his chin, and, it being unanimously decined to kick him, a ring was formed, and the scoun. drel "booted" by s dozen pair of sturdy legs tili they could kick no more. Grand Juries Goino out or Fashion. A proposition to do away with grand juries, so far at least us London is concerned, is now beforu Parliament, and receives the support of government. A motion intended lo defeat the bill wus rejected by a large majority. That able lawyer, Sir F. Shesiger, defended the bill, and referred to the repeated repre sentations of grund juries themselves to the effect that they were not only unnecessary but absolutely un obstruction la justice. -f There is a curious fact said to exist few miles south of Greencastle, Indiana, where there is a family of six, all having the tame birthday.

It is a bud sign for a boy to be seen throwing stones at every dog or pig, or bird he sees in Ihe street. It shows that such a boy has an unfeeling heart. He don't cure how much suffering he may cause a poor innocent bird or animal. What If he breaks a wing or leg! he only laughs at the agony he has caused. , (yThe sentence In which Mike Walsh first used the term "codfish aristacrucy" is a very fine one. We quote from memory: "The aristocracy of tulenl I revere; the ar istocracy ol power fairly won and honestly exercised; I respect, the aristocracy of wealth I oaa tolerate; but the low, dirty codfish ar istocracy, loath and detusl," THE POSITION OF PARTIES. From Ui. Lynchburg, Virginian. We expressed the opinion, a few days since, that there would soon be a reconstruc tion of political parlies all over the country, hut particularly in the South. Indeed, the position of parties has already been material ly changed, within the last twelve months. One year ago the American parly of the North maintained a distinct organization and boasted of lis strength but it seems now to bs generally admitted that its organization is almost gone, and the great hulk of its mem bers have settled down either in the Drrno. era lie or Black Republican ranks. There are here and there, a few af them who cling to the shadow of their former greatness. But they ore impotent for good, and their efforts to accomplish their purposes ns fruitless and as profitless as the labors nf Sysiphns. - At the same time a serious schism has arisen in the Democratic ranks, North and South. Tha unholy union between the two wings of the party, with nothing in oommon-j but the mere party name, has been preserved us long ns possible and s rupture has be come inevitable. Thus, while the Southern wing is, naturally enough, dissatisfied with the Northern wing, by reason of its broad departure from the ancient Democratic land marks, it cannot yet express that dissatisfac tion without also producing a division in its own household. There are Democrats in the South or men calling themselves Democrats w ho profess themselves yet willing to trust to Northern Democrats, notwithstanding it has become the rarest circumstance thut they vote together in any measure of legislation, involving political principle, Hint comes to the consideration of Congress. These Southern Democrats are, necessarily, separating them selves daily from Ihe bulk of the States' Rights Democracy of the South. It is not, by any means, Walker's Kansas policy alone. that is causing the rupture. That is of too temporary a character to cause the disintegra tion of a great party. The cause lies deeper, and is founded on principle. The old strict construction notions of the Southern Demo cracy have been Invaded mid trampled upon, in repeated instances, by their Northern allies und thejssue between the two Southern wings of the party now Is, whether the North ern mid Western Democracy shall still be accepted into fellowship, notwithstanding their political heresies, and for the sake of the spoils or whether the Democracy of the South shall adhere to their traditional princi ples through thick and thin, and regardless of nil consequences. Iu the mean time the growing political power of the North destined, In be so great that we will be entirely helpless ifth- North choose to exercise it has alarmed the saga. cious statesmen of Uie South, Mr. Cultu.iiu, years ago; foresaw the result, and ndiiionished the South, at nil hazards, to maintain its po litical equality in ut least one branch of the rational Legislature. What would Mr. Cal houn think, were he alive now, of the pros pect of half a dozen additional Free States without a single circumstance of coiiipensii. tion to the South? And, In view of these threatening dangers, Southern men will for get party ullegiance, and will not hesitate to repel any association with Northern men, of w hutever party, wiio will not give the amplest and most unqualified assurance thut thu po litical power of Ihe North shall not be used to oppress, and degrude, uud plunder, the weak er section. . As for the American party now confined exclusively to the South there is no pros pect of division in its ranks. It has no North ern allies to propitiatu by concessions, even were it so disposed. It stands on its distinc tive principles. It resists the introduction of ignorant and debased foreigners, lo build up and populate the Free Soil plates of the Northwest. It resists the extension of the right of suffrage to Free Soil immigrants from Europo, before they become citizens. It resists the granting of the common Terri tory to Ihe Northwestern States, by which these States are, gradually overshadowing the majesty of the South. It loves the Union hut it must be that sort of Union which is a Union of equality. We repeal, that all the sign, of the times indicate a revolution in the organization nf parties, and the formation of new combina tions. Out of the entanglements nnd enm plleations now existing, will arise other par ties, with issues clenrly nnd distinctly defined. The doy of palliatives and compromises and concessions Is past. For the future, the issues which involve the safety nf the South will not be blinked or avoided but will he met boldly nnd without hesitancy. Let Ihe people of the South, who nre true and loynl, keep their weather eye open lo the tnachina. lions of politicians who would sacrifice every, thing to the success of party, for Ihe sake only of the emoluments that thereto attach.

The New York Journals have been sur mising and hinting that some further discov eries respecting the murder of Dr. Uurdell nre likely lo come out of the recent Cunningham farce. A New York eorrespundent of Ihe Boston Journal professes to give some of these new disclosures, cautiously, however, preceding litem with the declaration that he does not wish to be held accountable for their accn nicy, He says: Not to be held to ton rigid an account for the full correctness of nil III Veto state not willing to be held to strict accuracy, I hnve good niithoiity for saving thut -probably the veiled mystery of Harvey Burd.

All his old haunts have been visited, all his old nsso einUs found and examined, all the usual places nf resort searched, and yet no one snw or heard of himafier seven o'clock, till he Was seen to enter his house ut eleven o'clock nt night. The fact Was, he was tint then alive; he lay on his floor a mangled and stiffened corpse. He was killed soon after he entered his house .it aeven o'clock that evening. His probable murderer wan seen to go iulo tint house belnre he came Irom his dinner, in the closet he w ailed lor his victim; w itbcoal nnd shoes off he watched (or the return of ihe subject, with tlm intention to garrote him; his accomplice and accessory was in waiting in Ihe next room, with a dagger, prepared for n struggle, if needful.

And when it was said that he "was seen lo enter his own house at 11 o'clock that fatal night, through his front door his answer is, Hal, cane and cloak went in on the person of the assassin."

Sir E.
