MR. WEBSTERSLETTER.". ) The following letter from Daniel Webster to the trreat Union Meeting in New York City was read nrVid loud applause : Fbabklin, (N. H.) October 28, 1850. Gentlemen: Nothing in the world bat regard, for the state of my health prevents me from accepting at once your invitation, and assurm? you of my pres at the "Union Meeting " at Castle Garden on Wed nesday evening next. I rejoice to know that such a meeting is called ; I rejoice to know tha i will be attended by thousands of in elhgent men, lovers of their countrv party men doubtless, but abject slaves oTo pani 7anWo will not suffer either partya mor or party discipline to dry up within them all the fountains of love and attachment to the constitution of their country. The voice of such a meeting will he heard and respected ; it will rebuke disobedience to the laws, actual or threatened ; it will tend to check the progress of mad fanaticism; it will call men who are honest, but who have been strangely misled, back to their duty; and it will give countenance and cour age to the faithful friendsjof Union throughout the la nd. V s r When the commercial interests of the great me- . if ttio pnnnirv Rnenks. with united hearts and voices, exoressing its conviction of the presence of the ereat danger, and its determined purpose to meei that danger, to comoai wun u. ana ofw,,,s exainnle"is likely to rouse good men everywhere; and when the country shall be roused, the country will be safe. , I concur, gentlemen, in all the political principles contained in the resolution', a copy of which has been sent to me ; and I sfcrhd pledged to support those principles, publicly and privately, now and always, to the full extent of my influence, and by the exertion of every faculty which I possess. The eminent men whom you mention, and with whose names yon have done me the honor to associate mine, are well worthy of the praise which yon bestow on them. I shall never forget, and I trust the country will never for eet, the patriotism, the manliness, the courage mani ftst'ed by them in an hour of difficulty and of peril. The peace measures of the last session are : the Texan boundary act, the act for establishing the two Territorial Governments of New Mexico and Utah, the act for the abolition of the slave trade in the Dis trict of Columbia, and the fugitive slave law. ;This last measure, gentlemen, is not such a measure as I had prepared before I left the Senate and which of course I should have supported if I had remained in the Senate. But it received the sanction of the two Houses of Congress and of the United States. It is the law of the land, and as such is to beTespected and obeyed by all good citizens. I have heard no man whose opinion is worth regarding deny its con stitutionality, and those who counsel violent resis tance to it counsel that which, if it take place, is sure to lead to bloodshed and tome commission ui -pi.i offences. It remaims to be seen how far the deluded and deluders will go on this career of faction, folly, and crime. There were honest and well meaning mem ers of Congress who did not see their way clear to suppon .tuJnrmi and leading measures of the last session. Yon are quite right in saying that the motives of these gentlemen ought noi 10 De unpeacneu. um ic measures have been adopted ; they have become laws, constitutionally and legally binding upon us all, and no man is at liberty to oppose them. No man is at liberty to set up, or affect to set np, his own conscience as above the law, in a matter which respects the rights of others, and the obliga tions, civil, social, and political, due to others from him. Such a pretence sips thi foundation of all gov ernment and is, of itself, a perfect absurdity ; and while all are hound to yield obedience to the laws, wise and-well-disposed citizens will forbear from re newing past agitation, and rekindling the flames of useless and dangerous controversy. If we would continue one people, we must acquiesce in the will of the majority, constitutionally expressed ; and he who does not mean to do that means to disturb the public peace, and do what he can to oveituin the Government. Gentlemen, I am led to the adoption of your last resolution in an especial and emphatic manner, by evpry dictifte of my understanding, and I embrace it with full purpose. of heart and mind. Its sentiment is my sentiment. With yon, I declare that 1 " range myself nnder the banner of that party whose princi ples and practice are most calculated to uphold the Constitution and to perpetuate our glorious Union." j Gentlemen. I am here to recruit my health, enfeebled i as it has been by ten months of excessive labor and indescribable anxiety. The air of these my native hills renews my strength and my spirits. I feel its invigorating influence while I am writing these few lines; and I shall return shortly to my post to dis charge its duties as well as I can, and resolved in all events, that, so far as depends upon me, our Union shall pass through this fiery trial without the smell of smoke upon its garments. I am, gentlemen, with very sincere regard. Your obliged fellow-citizen, and obed't serv't. DANIEL WEBSTER. To Msssrs. F. S. Lathrop, Gerard Hallock, Chas. G. Carleto.v, P. S. Durvee, Commettee, New York." It must be cause of regret among Southern men generally, without respect to party, that this letter from the " great expounder" should have been mar red by the manner in which allusion is tnade in it to the Fugitive Slave Law. Mr. Webster says : " This last measure, gentlemen, is not such a measure as I had prepared before 1 left the Senate, and which, of course, I should have supported f I had remained in the Senate. " Mr. Webster would, in all probability, have voted for the present law, if he had remained in the Senate; but it is known, and he alludes to the fact, that shortly before he left that body he had laid' upon its table a bill of his own on the subject, pre pared during the month of February, 1850. Thai bill gave to escaped slaves, in so many words, trial by jury in the free Stales ! And that is the bill which Mr. Webster says he would have supported, if he had remained in the Senate. This fact is but another evi dence of the strength of the anti-Slavery and aggres sive feeling of the North. Mr. Webster, it seems to us, might have omitted all allusion to this bill of his ; and we cannot see that there was any reason why he should have pursued a different course. UNION MEETING AT THE NORTH. It is stated that a call for a Ufiion Meeting, similar to that held in New York City, is circulating in Philadelphia. It ia expected to be held soon,"and will speak in thunder-tones the sentiments of Phi ladelphians against the fanatics and their accursed leaders. A large Union Meeting was also called at Geneva, New York, on Saturday last. Senator Dickinson and others were expected to address it. The destiny, of the Union is now in the hands of the Northern people. They may save or destroy it. Their deci sion must be rendered soon. Fanaticism, like time and tide, " waits for no man." The Turkish Ambassador, Amin Bey, has been re ceiving the hospitalities of the citizens of Massachu setts during the last few weeks and exmining the va rious factories at Lowell, the celebrated Quincy gran ite quarries, the hospitals, prisons, poor-houses, and all other institutions of note, and has expressed him self highly delighted wih the admirable manage ment of all. He spent three days at the hospitable mansion of the Hon. Daniel Webster, at Marshfield. The Charleston Mercury states that a quantity of castor oil, manufactured from seed grown in the vi cinity of that city, has been shipped to Baltimore. The article, which is represented as being of a su perior quality, was prepared by Mr. C. Alfs, who has gone extensively into the business. The seed from hich the shipment under notice was made yielded thirty bushels to the acre, and sold at two dollars per ushel. The Mercury thinks that quite a lucrative business, both to the planter and manufacturer, will spring up in Vnia new article of export. ; INTERESTING CORRESPONDENCE. It will be seen by tha subjoined correspondence, aajs the Elizabeth City Pioneer, that the Democracy of Gates have tendered to Gov! Reid the compliment of a public dinner for his " perseverance, energy and untiring devotion to the tnreat principles n of the De?. mocratic party, and which contributed so much to the brilliant victory achieved by that party in August last..

Getiilemen: Your letter of the 6th ultimo, invit ing me on behalf of a large portion of the people of uatea county to partaite ot a public dinner, at such time during. the present month as may suit my con venience, was mis-sent, and did not reach me till j to-day. My arrangements are such that I have been under the necessity to decline similar invitations from my friends in other portions of the State, and for the same reason I am reluctantly compelled to forego the pleasure of partaki of the hospitality tendered by my fellow-citizens of Gate9. Mr reerret on this account is enhanced, from the fact that the names to your letter call to mind scenes and associations of " by gone days" upon which my memory delights io linger, x trust, nowever, that on some other oc casion I may have the pleasure of meeting my friends in your county. It is to the purity and patriotism of the people we are indebted for the late political triumph. For the part I have acted I have the satisfaction to know that 1 was prompted by considerations of public duty; and for the repeated marks of confidence and consid eration bestowed upon me by my fellow-citizens throughout the State, I feel most profoundly grateful. Identified, as I am, with North Carolina, and hon ored by her as I have been, I can but feel the deep est interest in her progress and destiny ; that she may pursue such a course of policy as may advance the welfare and happiness of the people, is my most ar dent desire. With my best wishes, I am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, DAVID S. REID. To Messrs. W. Stallings, and others. The Fugitive Slave Law. The papers, North and Sot lb, are filled with the momentous bearings ot this question. It seems to swallow op all other con sideratioi s for upon its perservation, we candidly believe, depends the existence of the Union. The extreme Eastern horizon is dark enough. Indeed, we shouW not be surprised to hear the human blood has crimsoned the streets of Boston. The villainous, detestable fanatics seem bent on bringing down upon their lawless heads, the indignation of an insulted people, ibe strong arm of the civil and the military power itself. If the President and the Federal offi cers do their dqjy, this law will be executed, " at all hazards, and to the last extremity." Threatening as that view may be,-we are pleased to see a few bright er streak in other parts of the horizon. The glori ous Union meeting in New York, with its tens of thousands of patriotic spirits clustered around the country's altar, speaks out thunder-tones of rebuke to miserable fanatics. We trust that the patriotic strain will be caught up .and run like fire over the whole Ndrth, blasting the traitors, and lighting up the torches of the Constitution and the Union. If this meeting falls dead, the Union itself will be gone forever. Rich. Enq. A Reverse of Fortune. The Milwaukee Ad vertiser, furnishes a remarkable instance of the changes which sometimes occur in a man's lifetime. Congress, at its late session created a new office in the Attorney General's bureau that of " Copying Clerk," with a salary of $2000, which has been giv en by Crittenden to Ex-Chancellor George M. Bibb, formerly a Senator of the U. S. from Kentucky, and for a short -time Secretary of the Treasury under President Tyler. How strange are the- vicisitudes of life and the vas ciilations of fortune. "Mr. Crittenden was a law stu dent in the office of Judge Bibb, at a time when the latter had acquired high professional and political dis tinction. Judge Bibb now, having served with em inent credit in many of the highest offices of the state and rfation, at an age, if we are not mistaken, above four score, finds himself in the humble office of clerk to his former pupil. - Getting Insured. The Troy Post relates a " good joke " of Jacob Barker, the Quaker, who, hearing the loss of one of his vessels which he had omitted to get-insured, wrote to a broker, with whom he had spoken on the subject, as follows : Dear friend : If thee has not filled up the poli cy which I bespoke on Saturday, thee need not, as I have heard from the vessel." The broker, in fact had not filled up the poliey, but nresuminc from the tenor of Jacob's note, that the ves sel was safe, and tempted by what seemed a good chance to clutch his percentage without risk he filled it up forthwith and sent it,to Jacob, with the assu rance that it had been made already for him on Satur day. On monday morning, the first thing that met his eyes on opening his newspaper, was tne loss oi Jacob's vessel, which he had so wickedly insured on Sunday. Then also he discovered the cunning am biguity of Jacob's note, " he had heard from the ves sel!" A BtACTiroL Flower. A friend presented us a day orw0 since with a curiosity in the shape of a r f "ch we think i8 one of the greatest wonders of the floral kingdom we have ever seen. It is about the size of a walnut, perfectly white, with five leaves, resembling Yery much indeed the wax pianU Upon the b.ooming of the flower, in the cup formed by the leaves is the exact image of a dove, lying upon its back, with its wing extended. The peak of the bill, and the eyes are plainly to be seen, and a small leaf, before the flower arrives at maturity, forms the out spread tail. This leaf bti raised or shut down by the fingers without breaking or apparently injuring it until the flower reaches it, fa bloom When it drops off.. We regret our inability to give a technical description of this curiosity at this time, but hope to do so shortly as one has been promised us by a per son every way qualified to write it.

Search for Slaveowners. Theodore Parker and other members of the committee of safety went through some of the rooms of the United States Ho tel, in search of persons supposed to be in pursuit of slaves. They were soon told, however by the propri etor, that such conduct would (not be allowed in the House, and were very politely invited to suspend op rations and attend to their own business.

There was a severe frost at Natchez on Friday night, destroying the Cotton crop,and doing material injury to vegetation generally. The ground in the vicinity of Natchez, under the hill, continued to give way, and it was supposed that three houses above the steamboat landing would be carried away during the night. The weather here is clear and frosty. Springfield, Oct. 31. Messrs. Hughes and Knight, the persons who cre ated so much excitement at Boston, by attempting to recapture fugitive slaves, passed through here to-day, on their way to New York. They left without their slaves. ' i : " Cleaveland, Oct. 29' A large meeting has been held here, to express its disapprobation of the Fugitive Slave law.

A cor respondent of the St. Louis Union has deluded him self with the idea that Col. Benton will receive 159 out of 295 electoral votes. He claims for the Color nel, Connection t,New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan; Indiana, Illinois, and the slave States ot Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, and several other States. Ths writer must be a person of sanguine temperament and considerable imagination. Old Hickory. In the difficulty with France, the French Ambassador at Washington, hoping to fright en General Jaskcon, asked of him, when he demand ed his passports, " What shall I tell the King of the French, Monsieur President 1" " Tell your master, the King, that Andrew Jack son says he must pay or fight!" There was no misunderstanding such diplomacy and the money was soon after forthcoming. Telegraphic Despatch, from the mayor of Colum bus, Mississippi, October 30 : " Killing frost last night." " E.
