Whatever disappointment you must feel at tho failure of the General Assembly to concur in any scheme lor terminating the unsatisfactory relation* now subsisting b< - twecu the States of the Union, your determination. I tru*t, to insist on some early and adequate corrective, ha* undergone no change. You cannot,and if you would, your associates of the South will not, consent to remain i't r years to come, exposed to outrages daily repeated for years aud years past, with constantly increasing aggra vations, until, at length, they have broken out into actu al invasion and bloodshed. \ou have still at your com mand abundant means of redress without withdrawing the State Legislature ftom the engrossing piusuite of pri vate, local,or party object*. ^ ou will iustruet your rep resentatives in Congress; or, as the rightful possessors ot ull power, take your own affairs into your own hands,and in your primary assemblies or special conventions carve out some reinedv lor wrongs you have proclaimed in the fiee ot the world you will uo longer endure. In this hope, permit me to recall yonr attention to the different plans submitted to the General Assembly. And first let us recur for a moment to the bill design ed to inaugurate the new system of commercial indepen dence—by non-intercourse with the North and direct trade with Europe. “.t hill making regulations concerning Special Li censes." This scheme was thought to have been finally con dgued to the grave some weeks ago. Its vital spit it, however, wus not extinct, and it speedily passed by a metempsychosis into the body of the tax hill. It again however received its guietus, but as it may rise again aud again in the same or some new form, it may be well bri tly to consider its merits. I shall not at tempt to discuss these at large. Such a discussion would require a deeper insight into the future workings of an untried experiment; a profounder knowledge of political economy, aud especially ot the laws ol trade, thin I shall ever affect to possess. I shall content myself with sim ply sta'ing the conclusions to which niy own mini! has come, aided by the arguments attd opinions of others who have more fully examined, and better understand the subject. J udging from the lights before me, the measure ap pears to be one of doubtful constitutionality, to say the least; and ot more doubtful expediency. The objections to it on this 1 ist score, are, 1. That while it would fail to establish State commerce, or manufactures, on a secure aud profitable basis, it would iudirceth- impose now burtheus on agriculture— the great interest of the Commonwealth—bv enhancing the co-t ol articles imported from the North as well as from abroad; the necessary result of attempted prohibi tion and monopoly—while at tho same time it would di minish a i ieultural resources by withdrawing, to Rome extent, its already too seamy labor, and narrowing the markets for its products. •I. That instead of fostering our commercial indepen dence it would most probably defeat it by overtaxing the capital employed in tiade with tiie North; driving it into new channels* or expelling it from the Commonwealth. ;;. That through means of the proposed 'Minus on the exportation ol imported uitides, our own consumers would be -uhjscted to higher prices than consumers in other States. !. That these results would generate both in the com mercial and agriculturol class, feeliugs towards their own government adverse to the objects contemplated, and subversive indeed of the great ends of all free institutions. 5. That it would keep alive and aggravate the dissen sions between us aud the Northern people, without les sening their disposition or means ol annoyance. tl. The waut of cordial support; the probability indeed of decided opposition, not only from our people, but from oar sifter States of ti.e South. 1 And, finally, what appears to me absolutely fatal, the probable interference ot the Northern States aud of the General Government. The futility of anmttempt by a single State to inaugu rate anew system of commercial restriction, unsupport ml bv a large portion 01 ns own citizens, ns wen u- uy t'loso of o.iu-r States having similar grievances to resist; against the wishes aud intea. sts, if not the constitutional claims of eighteen inimical States having power lo tnh the reholep diet/" of the Federal government, is too manifest to require argument. Let us suppose the new system carried out, and in the ‘•full tide ot successful experiment" Manufactures, sty, C- other needful articles of consumption, are imported di rect front Europe; cheaper aud liettcr than heretofore f otn the North. The North controls the House of Rep r»sentat‘ves and the Senate, and nt iv, at all times elect th*> President. 11 nv long would it be before a Tariff to protect American industry, which always means Uorth e u industry, would be adopted, operating the entire ex c! :-ion ot competing manufactures from abroad, and wrecking ut'.erlv the fortunes of all embarked in this di rect trade? Prohibition of Northern imports would be met by prohibition of Foreign imports; free trade with the North would be annihilated by our laws, and direct trad' with Europe by theirs. It the scheme, owing to its own ii.hcreut d. fects, should fail, there would be a chance that serious lo-s might be avoided by a timely w ihdrawal of the capital employed; but if it should *«<■ f, 7,t <• adventurtr- might !>•• sud leuly and irretrievably r -1 bv a ‘-j.i ii- '■••it Tariff." Tno system, in a word, w ati’d be at t ■• merev of those nt whom it was level!- d. Eor these reasons, jartiji ib'e as the measure in question nt g!tt be, by way ot retaliation against States which hab itually disregard the Federal compact, it seems, viewing i: us it i lleots our own interest-, or as an initiatory step towards an adjustment, every way exceptionable, li. tiik sorrurits conference. Th-> advantages, indeed, the necessity of this measure, arr too apparent to have escaped your attention, 1 will not attempt to discuss them. No argument 1 would of fer would be more than a feeble repilition of the views recently and most elaborately presented by the commis sioner from South Can li ia and others.—and the impolicy ot its rejection by the General Assembly, is demonstrated b, the gratification of our adversaries, no less by the dis satisfaction of our friends. THE MISSION TO THE NORTHERN STATES. Both the lat- a id present Governor recommended that a demand should be made ou the Northern Slates, to repeal their statutes obstructing the Fugitive Slave law. Governor le tcher considered that the object justi !i, t a special mis-ion. Not only w as the object import ant; but, after the rejection ot thi-Sonthern Conference, and up-hi the eve of the Northern elections, the time was peculiarly propitious. A temperate remonstrance might have led the ’misguided' of the North to seethe law •s-uess and injustice of their conduct towards us: — might have paved the way to un amicable adjustment; or, 7 nor, woul I have strengthened our positiou by put ting our adv« r-arics more in the w rong. All these Executive recommendations, however, and one va'dv iuoic important yet to be noticed, were lieutd unheeded, i . the anxiety to bring into the world the 1» vori e -\ sp in of commercial independence. But this - heme l a- proved au abortion; the General Assembly, after bro i ling over it for mouths, in a House divided i-aii-t itself, have- finally closed their deliberations bv overlaying inieres-s of the Commonwealth more impor tant ttiun any which ever claime i th« ir attention, and do* tiling—nothing, I mean, d-dnitedly nettling or tending to -eftle them on a ’Van-factory basis.” The "tlvvinite m n.vren" which the joint resolutions on the Southern Conference recognize as uvrennarg in reference to “onr rial ions with the nou-slavehohJing States,” arc indefi nitely postpoticd, “in view of the development* of up proa-king event*."

Tin* frieuds ol Judge Douglas have gratifying news fro a the South this morning. It Is said that lion. Win. L. Vaneev, a delegate to Charleston from Alabama, will oppose the i.ommuliou of Douglas iu a foul-day’s speech; but as the main ground of his opposition to the Senator from lllii ois is because h is election may prevent a diso lutioi of tbe Union, the Douglas men are willing that he shall go ahead. Vr. Buchanan’s candidate lor Chare-ton is undoubt ed y Gen. Joe i.ane, of U.egou. The Huuter movement w a.s a blind. Hon. George W.

F’rotu what I can hear, it is one of the most overwhelming aud splendid productions which have ever beon presented to au American Congress.

Mr. Clay, lrom the committee on commerce, to whom was relerred the joint resolution from the tiousc of Re presentatives, constituting Macon, Ca„ a part ot entry lor the time being, for thepurpu-es therein specified, and for oilier purposes, reported it without amendment, and asked its immediate consideration, which being agreed to, the resolution was read a third tune and passed.

Hunter moved to p< s'poue the homestead bill for half an hour, in Older to dispose of the Indiau apppre priation bill. Mr. Johnson, of Ark., regarded tbe homestead hill as ati altohliou measure, iuleu led to till tip the unoccupied lauds of the (’idled Stutis with Abolitionists, aud secure more tree States The question being put, the motion of Mr. Hunter was not agreed to—jets go, nays .in.

Mr. Green argued that the provisions of existing pre emption laws should be extended for two years. After the cousideiation of executive business the Sen ate adjourned. HOUSE OF KK.’RU'KN'TATI VKS. Mr. Sherman, from the committee of ways aud tneaus, reported the postoflicc appropriation bill. The House again resitui *d ilic consideration of the bill to suppress polygamy in Utah. Mr. N'elsou resumed his remarks in support of the bill, expressing the hope that its passage would upproaeh li near as possible to unanimity. He saw a /manifest dis tinction between interfeiing with the rights of property a id the right to declare criminal an act which is so de clared In the law ol G >d. The i xistcucc of the institu tion ot polygamy in Ut ih is uu insult to the moral feelings of the whole imputation ; an insult to the wives ami ding liter;, of gentlemen here, aud those of their consti tuents It was a r. 11 •di.m on our national character that it should exi-t under the protection of American law. Mr. Hooper, the delegate from Utah, remarked that a the propei time, (aud event-were now hastenit g it,) when h • could be heard without pojudice, lie would defend the peep •• ol Utah tioni the calumnies which had been lieap ei upon them. In the meantime, lie appealed to the dis* passionate and uuhi.is-ed judginent ol the House to think better of the nue hundred thousand of the fellow-crea tures than they had been represe nted bv their enemies. It was not his intention to discuss the different featur .« of the bill, In.' he n pectfullj asked gentlemen whether tlicv were prepared to meet the consequences of its pas sage? Were we not now emerging fiom difliculties with the people at whom this bill was leveled? He warned gentlemen that the feelings of the people of Utah would b ■ easily aroused. The suspicion of hostility against them has been allayed, and he was glad to know that there was a b • ter feel ug now than formerly. But if this hill be pas-ed, and if us provisions be carried out, those an grv pn-stons will revive aud wither at tbe core. The fir* - which blazed so fiercely while fuel of persecution wsls heaped upon them have died out, aud he appealed to the representatives, not of one party, hut of all par tie.-, to say whether they are prepared to rekindle the fiames. As the delegate of all the citizens of Utah, he had to remember he could not allude to the division of sentiment among them on the subject of | otYgamy or any otlu r. Mr t*l irlv. of Missouri, asked to what extent noheimv exists iu Utah? What number have more t: an one wite. and whether the regulation of such marriages is regarded us binding on the people ? Mr. Hooper replied he was not practically a polyg - mis'. From his observation of ten years’ residence in l’uh, he coaid say not over half the population recog nize polygamy, ami probably not more than oue-haif ol these have more than one wife each. [Laughter.] He knew of no church regulation which compelled a man to become a polygamist, and of no church regulation w hich compelled a woman to marry a man except voluntarily. He was encouraged to know there were several gentle men on this lioor who have been acquainted with him for the last twenty years, ami long previous to bis identifica tion with the citizens of Utah. They would say he was not capable of deceit or dissimulation. He declared on his honor that the passage of this bill will not he unex ceptionable to the extreme advocates ol’ polygamy in Utah, and it w ill unite all the people in a common curse against the unjust pretensions of the general government to put down polygamy by force. The House then made a verbal amendment to the hill, and then voted on and rejected the substitute ol Air. Branch, which proposed to repeal the law ol Congress establishing the Territory of Utah, ?o far as to take from the people the powers of legislation, and vest it iu a leg isltiire council to be appointed by the President, anil disappioviug and annulling the law establishing the Lat ter Day Saints Church. The yeas were -17, nays 151. The House then voted on and rejected the substitute of Mr. McCleruand, proposing to repeal the law estab lishing the Territory of Utah, and to divide the Territo ry between the Ten itories of Jefferson and Nevada.— Yeas 85, nays 159. Th,i bill was then passed—vo>8 149, nays GO. It pro vides for punishment on conviction ol polygamy, a line not exceeding five hundred dollars and imprisonment not less than two uor more than five years; and annuls the ordinance of the provisional government of the State ol Desi ret, incorporating the Church ot Jesus Christ ol Lat ter Day Saints, passed in 1851, Li , and annuls all acts and laws which establish, maintain, protect or counte nance the practice of polygamy, evasively called Spirit ual Marriage, however disguised by legal or ecclesiasti cal solemnities, sacraments or other contrivances. Air. Sickles btought before the House the subject of his contested election, and made certain complaints against the contestant. Air. Williamson. After a brief de bate the subject was referred to the committee on elections, The House went into committee of the whole on the state of the Union. Mr. Sherman moved that the tariff’and loan bill be ta ken up. Mr. Branch said lie was opposed to action on the sub ject, believing that that the present tariff’bill was suffi cient to meet the wan's of the government. The bill having been taken up, Air. Lovtjoy, of Illinois, said they had been talking about pologamv to-day.— Now, in accordance with the republican platform, he wanted to help to destroy the other “twin relic of barba rism,” slavery. And, accordingly, he mude an anti-sla very speech. It caused niueh excitement, aud caiue near leading to a wide-spread collision. Southern members were particularly excited by his hold and denunciatory remarks against’ slavery. The committee rose and the House adjourned.

JAMES K. PAULDING. James Kirke Paulding was a native of Dutches* coun ty, N. Y-, and was born August 22, 1770. During the war of the Revolution, Mr. Pauliling'ii fam ily were driven from Westchester county, and to that county they returned after the war. lnlii*early manhood Mr. Paulding came to this city, where he resided most of the time until about 1844. In 1*07 Mr. Paulding was connected with Washington Irving in the publication of •'Salmagundi.” In 1*18, Mr. Paulding published “the diverting History of John Bull and Brother Johnathan," and the next year he published several other book*. In 1815, having passed the sum mer in Virginia, he wrote “Letters from the South.”— Other books of his were the “Bickwoodsman," “Konings marke,” “Jehu Bull in America," the “Three Wise Men of Gotham,” the “New Pilgrim’s Progress,” "Tales of the Goodwomao," “The Dutchman's Fireside," “Westward Ho," Ac. In 1885, he published a “Life of Wa-hington,” andmore recently “Slavery in the Uuited States.” In public life Mr. Paulding has had considerable expe rience. In 1814 he was secretary of the uavy commis sioners at Washington, ami at a subsequent period navy agent in New York. From 1837 to 1*41, he was Secre tary of the Navy, under Marlin Van liurcn. Latterly, Mr. Paulding has withdrawn from the public eye, and has been living quietly at his home on the Hudson. His writings are best known in this country. His col lected works comprise 25 volumes, and his uncollected writings would probably make as many more. A Patriarch Go.nk.—Capt. William Beatie, the oldest man perhaps in Southwestern Virginia, departed this life At the residence of his son, Madison Beatie, near Glade Spring, in this countv.on Wednesday morniug last. Capt. Beatie was about 100 years old, and was the last surviv or of the King’s Mountain veteran* from Virginia. He was an honest, upright, kind-hearted Christian geutleman, and was beloved and venerated by all who knew him. He had bteu blind for many years.and for that reason had lived very retired.—Abingdon Virginian. Gov. McMcllNi.—This gentleman, says the Jefferson ville Advocate, attended the Circuit Court of Tazewell last week, where he announced himself a candidate for Congress, declaring that if there were no other candid ate in the field, his majority over Mr. Martin would be up in the thousands. The Governor might be slightly mistaken—but time and patience will settle the question. —Ah. Virginian. Di.strksriso Mortai-Itt.—We published in our issue of the w eek before last, the death of Mr. Rufus K. Wil liams, of Sinyth county, on the 25th ult. On the 7th of the same mouth, his son Beverlv died, in the loth year of his age. On the 2d of the same month his daughter Margaret died, aged four years.
