MESSAGE OP 1KB PRSSI0KRT. To A " n'' rf R,PeOTUUT xh United 8u t r deem it my doty to submit to Centres series of resolutions adopted by the Legis latere of VirRiol oo the 19th Instant, having io vis peaceful settlement of the f listing questions which now threaten the Union. They were delivered to me on Thursday, the 24th Inst., by K President Tyler, who has left his dignified and honored retirement in the hope that he muy render service to his country in tbis its hour of peril. These reso lutions, it will be perceived, extend en Invite, tion to all each States, whether elaveholdinff or non slaveholdiog, as we are willing to unite with Virginia in an enrnest effort to ndjnst the present unhappy controvereaties in the spirit in which the Constitution was orin'inilly formed, and consistently with its principles, so as to afford to the people of the slaveholdicfl States adequate guarantees for the security of thi-ir rights, to appoint commissioners, to meet on the 4th rloy of lVhnsry next, io the eity of Washington, similar commissioners eppoioted by Virginia, tu consider, and, if practible, agree upon some suitable adjustment. 1 confess 1 hafl this tbis movement on the part of Virginia with Kret satisfaction. From the past history of this ancient and renowned commonwealth we have the fullest assurance that wbtt she has undertaken she will accomtnplish, if it can be done by able, enlightened and persevering ilTurts. It is highly gratifying to know that other patriotic States have appointed, snd lire appointing commissioners, to meet those or Virginia in council. When assembled, they will ennstitutu a body entitled, in nn eminent clearee. to the confidence of the country. The (Jeneral Assembly of Virginia have iilsn resolved that ex-President J orbit Tyler is hereby appointed, by the concurrent vote of each branch of the General Assem bly, a commissioner to the President of the l.'nited States, and Judge John Ilohison is lierebv appointed by a like vote, a commis tvoncr to the State of South Carolina and the other States that have seceeded, or shall secede, with instructions respectfully to re. quest the President of the United States and the authorities of such States to agree to abstain, pending the proceedings contempla ted by the action of this General Assembly, from uny nnd all acts calculated to produce n collision of urms between the Stales ami the government of the United Stales. However strong may be my desire to' enter into such an agreement, I am convinced that ! do not possess the power. Congress, and Congress olone, under the war making p.iwer, can exercise the discretion of enree me to abstain from any and all acts calcula ted to produce a collision of arms between this or any other government. It would therefore, he a nrsurpation for the executive to attempt to restrain their hands by an agreement ituejsard to 'matter over which I. e has no constitutional control. If he were thus to net they might pass laws which he should be bound to obey, though in conflict with bis agreement. Under existing circumstances, my present actual power is confined within narrow limits. It is my doty at all times to defend nnd protect the public property within the seceding States, so far 09 this may bo practi cable, and especially to employ the constitu tional means to protect the property or the l.'uited States, and to preserve the public pease at this the seat of the Federal govern ment. If the secedng States abstain from ny all acts calculated to produce a colli sion of arms, then the danger so much to be ileprecnted will no longer exiBt. Defence, nnd not airgression has been the policy of the Administration from the beginning Hut whilst I can enter into no engogement Fiich as that proposed. I cordially commend to Congress, with much confidence that it will meet their approbation, to abstain from pasting any Ibw calculated to produce a col lis'n.n of arms, pending the proceedings con tenplated by the action of the (Jenprul Assembly of Virginia, I am one of those who will never despair or the Kepublie. 1 yet ch-rish the belief that the American people wi:l perpetuate tho Union of the States on some terms just and honorable for all sections i.f the country. I trust tbot the mediation of Virginia may be the destined means under Providence of accomplishing thin iiiestima bin benefit. Glorious as are the memories of her past history, such an achievement, both in relation to her own fate and the welfare of thu whale conntry. w-mld surpass them all. JAMKS BUCHANAN. A Man Kim.kd by a I-io.n at Asti.ky's 'I iikatrk. A Thrilling Scene. On the 7th inst.. all the lionj at Astley's Koyal Amphi theater, in l.tindon, and owned by Mr. Crock en. escaped from their den. The London 'Aries says : Several men who were at work in the build ing were stat tied by the loud roaring of the lions, and in a few minutes they were horror struck at beholding one of the lions strut? tiling with a man named Jarvey, a yard helper in the establishment. Oo the arrival hs Mr. Crockett he rushed on the stage, lier th lion waa running about with the iiiifurtoDale man Jarvey io his mouth, to H uppoarance quite dead. Mr. Crockett in stantly seized a stable fork add dealt the lion h heavy blow on the side of the head, which caused it to lt the man go ; but instead of running away, be tornod rouud, uud seemed inclined to spring upon his master. Another powerful blow, however made the enraged animal luru, and run away. Medieal aid was immediately brought for poor Jarvey, but on the arrival of the surgeou, life was found to bo extinct. After the body of Jarvey had been removed Mr. Crockett went in search of the lions, who were now roaming about the theatre. One was seen running at a re mote corner of the alage, another was in the urena, and the other could not be seen. The lioness was the. first that was attempt ed to be secuted, hut this was a work of ex treme danger and difficulty, os the assistants were all afraid of even approaching the beast. OnseeiugMr. Crockett, the lioness made a dash through the pit saloon, whence she rushed up tbn box stair case and entered one of the private boxes, and took op a most threatening attitude. Nothing daunted, Mr. Crockett entered the box, placed a leathern collar around her neck and having secured her head, she was hauled out of the place by ropes, and finally placed in security. From tbe private box Mr. Crockett saw another of the animals playing on the stage with quantity of rib bons and stage properties, and, with compa ratively littla difficulty, it was placed again in tbe cage and, after a few minutes search, the third was recaptured. At half past seven yesterday morning, tbe watchman of tbe theatre, wbo la oo doty all night, left, at which boor, be ssyr, ell waa perfectly quiet ud safe. In consequence of tbe large lion being onwell, it had been parted from its companions, and, it is supposed, that in en deavoring to join it, one of tbe three lions in the other compartment of tbe cage must bave broken down the partitioo and thus displaced iba iron ban. The greatest excitement and consternation prevailed for some time In the theatre, and it required Mr. Corkett'a ut most perstiation to convince the attendants that no further danger need be apprehended. Dki-iuudlt KxrBKssivc. A correspondent eodiug os marriage notice, says t "SieWi may go out of the Union, bat men and woman will go io. Tbe Lord bate mercy on both parties." Punch of Wai.u Queen Victoria has just purchased e tine little piece of Highland property io Gletigary es a summer residence ( tbe J'rince of Wales. aK ETCH OF MR. KTIICRtDOE't REMARK. Mr. EllirrMge. of Tennessee, laid if a jury of twelve honest men could be' sworn to try tbe issue joined between the two contending factions, and bi longing to no political party, with nn motive bat to subserve the country, he conld submit the case to them without argument, and have a unanimous verdict. But anfortunately a disinterested jury cannot be procured, and tbe people are silly ennogh to appeal to this tribunal for peace. There are two hundred end thirty-six members of the House, but an eqisl number of es wise men can bo found in any Congressional district in the country, and yet w are told that because this Congress, elected wllhnnt reference to the present issues, will not Instantly stoy the tide of revolotion, therefore there is no nope for a free people. He proceeded to show the the madness and folly of subverting the government to secure any right without, that may not be enjoyed in the Union. Tbe personal liberty bills are not without excuse, hut it was due to the truth to express his belief that they would bn soon swept from the statute books, and, if unconstitutional, they are already null and void. If constitutional, there is no right to complain. As to the fugitive slave law, from the commencement or the present century till now not one dozen slaves nave been rescued from the State authorities. Why, Mr. Orr himseir.of l he kingdom of Carolina f laughter said it was strong ns anybody wished to make it. and would the I ugitive (Slave law be any more stringent, and the people more willing to execute it out of than the Union? The northern people have always, and will ever bn opposed to slavery, and you can mailt- no man in the north n pro slaverv man. The strougest slavery men in the south are Yan kees, and they no sooner go south than they marry a negro. I Laughter.) He begged pardon, they marry a woman with negroes, and then they commence to talk about the rights or slaveholders. There wos not a man iu this body who claims to bo an abolitionist. As on evulenco of his disposition Tor peace he would submit eight veurs longer to the Administration of President lluchanan. I Laiightrr.l He would assent to anything to the Crittenden, or the Horder States' Compromise, or the resolutions which he had himself sought to introduce here. He would go for the recommendation of the Select Committee of Thirty-three, before he wonld go nut of the Union. Failing in this, he would meet the disunion!! with a torch in one hand and sword in tho other: nnd so long as the stars nnd stripes wove over Ten. nessee, he wonld never snbmit to disunion. ApplnnseJ He proceeded to show that everv sluve act or Congress which has excited public notice and discussion has been dictated hy Southern statemen, or advocated by them. In every instance whore southern statesmen demanded concession and guarantees, the north has been yielding everything that was demanded, though it might be reluctantly. He referred to tho acquisition or Louisiana nnd Florida a Tew years ago. In 1819 before ha lived even the clamor was so great thut tho Federal Government had to purchase that territory, because the peninsula must not bn in tho hands of a foreign power. I cost five millions originally, and fifty millions mora werespenltn suppress I hostilities and millions more to build fortifications guard our commerce. After all, Florida, with not half ns many people therein as were in his district which can't master enough men to destroy her alligators assume to separnte from ber sisters. She walks out ef the Union not only with our fortifications and public lands. That is not the worst. She leaves nn prestige of the nnity of the States. Why Florida cannot protect herself from alligators without tho Federal government. Laughter Mr. Ktheridgn said it was known that the peopltt of the South are liko a tempest. Tney were insane, and in the language of Scripture be would answer them as he would a fool, "according to their folly." If the people or one section are misled, in the name of Heaven would it bo just to any that those of the other section should not do what is right to disabuse their minds. In the course of his remarks, he read en article from the Mont gomery Mail, in which tho editor says that the policy of tho Republicans is to turn the negroes loose and compel them to inter-marry with the poor whites, etc. Was it not true that Riteit had alleged that Mr. Hamlin was a mulatto? And did not Memininger an nounce on the Pine hills, to persons high and low degree, including "philosophers" end "short boys," that Mr. Hamlin was really a mulatto ? It is well known that throughout tbe South where the disunion sentiment predominates, there exists a reign of terror. While tbe conventions are in session in Charleston, Montgomery and elsewhere; while men are deliberrting on the fate of an empire, the military are being drilled. Mr. Leake, of Virginia wanted to know where the gentleman stood, by tbe nortb or south T Mr. Ftheridge I speak on the side which has but few representatives am tpealing fur my country. Applause A flor alluding to the tearrul condition or alTairs in the Sooth and the alarm which tbe military movements occasion, ne sain nn would vote Tor any pro' position that could for a moment relieve (tie public mind. I will, he added, return to Tennessee to resist the wave of disunion. If tbn worst ciroes to tbe worst, and I sbonld be dragged th the fearful precipice and made on unwilling observer of my country's. ruin, I will wash my bands of the same and crime which will attach to those who would over throw the public liberty and make our coun try a despotism. 1 will cling to the flag of my country in tbis darkesr hour of her peril, and cling to it as tbe saint would cling to bis Ged. Applanso.J Dr. Winsihp Outdone Dr. Winship, the celebrated Massachusetts uthlele, who' was asserted to be the "strongest man in the world," has met a superior in the person of William Thompson, wbo is connected with the Chicago Gymnasium. Tbe test of strength occurred iu tbat city one duy last week, at a gymnastic tonrnamuut, at which Dr. W inship performed his great muscular teat of lifting uine kegs of nails, weighing 1000 pounds, and raising, with tbe aid of barnets ou his shoulders, 1517 pounds. He was succeeded by Thompson, wbo commenc ing with tbe last lift of the Doctor, then went on adding weights aud lifting, with harness on shoulders sr.d hips, until the number stood successively 1536, 1G3G, 175G, 183C, 1036, 2036, '2136 pouuds very remarkable lift the latter, to be sore. lie also experiment ed with dumb-bells weighing 100 and 165 pounds. Another competiog gymnastic, named Cnrtis, "pushed" first 130 pounds, and then 150 ponnds in each baud wilb tbe pulley, and lying down upon his back, put op 110 pounds in each band. Hut tbe feat of the evening was tbe great lift of Thompson, and tbe judges so considered it in tbe award of tbe '.'00 prize to bitn. Orders from tuk South. Tbe Boston Journal states that orders continue to be re ceived in Lyon from prominent merchants of uoarieston, a. u aud Augusta, Ga., for goods upon tbe old terms, six months' credit. Last week a prominent dealer received orders for aboea from a Cbarlrsloo firm, wbo, like bit brother merchants io Georgia, said not a word aboot secession, tbe dissolution of the Union and civil war- Tbe manufacturer very naturally returned no answer to the effect that ir tbe cash, or its equivalent in a reepon sible draft was lent, tbe goods would be ship ped, and not witbont.

Tbe New York Timet says : "There is great excite ment at the West consequent on the ereo tion at Vicksbarg, by the Governor of Mis sissippi, of batteries commanding tbe pas sage of the Mississippi river at tbat point, wan orners lor the detention end examine' tion of aft Northern vessels. This hich band ed proceeding is an outrage oo Western rights wnicn win arouse universal indignation np me river, and be likely to provoke a signal chastisement. Tbe Western people regard the free navigation of the Mississippi as an indefeasible right bestowed on them by the God of nature, and they will never brook its Interruption. If the federal government will protect them in this right, the? wonld doubt less prefer protection by its authority ; but if me government should rail to act, they would wrest tne mouths or that noble river rrom hostile occupation by their own valor, and on tneir own responsibility. "If the South provokes a contest of this kind, it will have its hands full. Our West. em popolation, originally like all emigrants of an aaventuroos spirit, nnd nurtured by fron tier life, are the hardiest and bravest in the world. The boatmen on the Mississippi, in particular, srn the most daring navigators inai ever trod the deck o; a steamer, as Is attested by their racing on that snag beset stream, by the frequent boiler explosions, collisions, sinking of vessels and the whole sale destruction of lite and property which make river steamboats a terror to under writers. An army of Western pioneers, with a strong infusion of those dare-devils and the Mississippi boatmen are themselves an army would be, by all odds, the uglist customer the Southern rebels could deal with. And the upper valley of the Mississippi is as formidable by its numbers as hy tbe charac ter on its population. It could pour soldiers down the river like en inundation, which would sweep and lay waste all before it. New Advertisements. "WJL paper!"
