House or Representatives, March 24. The above resolutions being taken up, Mr. Burnet moved to lay them on the table. Mr. Bradley demanded the yeas and nays on said motion; which, being ordered, were had; and trie j house refused to lay the resolution on the table yeas 26, nays 31. The question was then on agreeing to the resolu tions. Mr. Moore demanded a division of the question, viz: That each resolution be considered separately. Agreed to. The first resolution was then agreed to yeas 52, nays 10. Mr. Fee moved to amend the second resolution by placing before the word " repealed,"- the words, ' mod find, amended, or so as to read that the law should be modified, amended, or repealed. A Tier some opposition tu the amendment by Messrs. Kent and Plumb, the question was taken on agreeing to the amendment, and resulted yeas 28, nays 28. So the amendment was disagreed to. Mr. Harlan moved to strike out the words " can never," and insert the words "ought never," so as to read "ought never to receive the sanction," &c. ; which was agreed to.

Modification in this case means repeal; for the men who voted for the first Resolution, and the people who sustain them in it, will never be satisfied until ihej can engraft upon that law habeas corpus and trial by jury for the escaped slave. ' The second Resolution is a tissue of falsehoods, and, on that account, if for nothing else, is disgrace ful to the State authorities from which it emanated.

' . . Sec'. 13. This act shall take effect from and after its passage." It remains to be seen whether this bill will become a law. We suppose, of course, it will. It is too much like Massachusetts to allow the hope that the result will be otherwise. ' ; The New York Legislature is expected soon to pass a series of Resolutions demanding the repeal of the fugitive law ; and as soon as she comes op for mally to the line of opposition, and announces her wish on the subject, we shall have the empire State of the North, the empire State of the West, and Massachusetts and Vermont, arrayed in deadly hos tility to the Constitution and to the continuance of the Union of these States.

The successful candidate it seems is a Free Soil Whig and a determined oppo nent ot the Fugitive slave law, but adds the Tribune " has never perceived that h'is Free Soil principles could be promoted by abandoning and opposing the Whig party." A sensible man truly. We wonder how any body else ever could perceive that his Free Soil principles could be promoted by abandoning and opposing the Whig party. That party we take it, is of all things the best contrived instrument now in being, with which to make successful. Free Soil schemes'. ' 'An early and decided supporter of Gen. Taylor" too!

Of course this upward turn 1 is not, Strictly speaking,- attributable to the increased receipts ; but as those statements were accompanied by such positive and absolute advices that the whole crop, notwithstanding the large receipts, would not exceed the former. short crop estimates, has given confidence and an upward tendency to prices.

Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun. Boston, April 4. A fugitive slave named Symms, from Savannah, was arrested here last night. There was considerable excitement on the occasion. Offi cer Bateman, who arrested him, was stabbed severely in the groin by the negro. He was committed to prison to await an investigation. The owner of the slave is James Porter, of Chatham County, Geor- gia, Second Despatch. Boston, April 311 P. M. The warrant for the arrest of the fugitive, Alfred. Symms, was granted ut 1 o'clock to-day, by Georsre P. Curtis, Esq. Po liceman Asa A. Bateman's wound in the groin is to the depth of three inches, but is not dangerous. After bis arrest the fugitive was placed in a carriage at the Mansion House, and driven at a rapid rate to the court-house, ' where he was committed for the night in the iock-np under the court-house.

Symms, the negro fugitive ar rested yesterday, is claimed by James Porter, of Chat ham county, Georgia.' The claimant's testimony was heard this morning in court, and the case adjourned till to-morrow morning. A meeting had been called by some abolition incendiaries to denounce Symms' arrest. A man was arrested last night for tinging King Chapel bell, with a view, it is supposed, of collecting a crowd to rescue the, fugitive. He was held to bail in the sum of $200, to answer the charge.
