Tory?it was the purpose of the Pro-Slavery Men to plant it within their borders?there was sufficient reason to fear that they would execute their purpose. It was the duty of Congress, therefore, to interpose to prevent the abolition of Freedom in the Territories. If the policy of the resolution was sound and good, the introduction of it was well-timed. Congress had been in session one month. The question of Slavery Kxtensinn was to be (hr Question for its decision. Texas was insidiously spreading its net over New Mexico. The delegates of the latter and those of Utah were ready to ask admission on the floor of Congress. Members were fresh from their constituencies, which had just expressed their opinions on the Question, and it was desirable to obtain their votes on a test motion before corrupt managers and demagogues could have time to tamper with their integrityThe majority of the Committee on Territories was hostile to the establishment of Territorial Government* irith ihf Proviso, ami no bill favoring the measure could be expected from it, unless in pursuance of positive instructions. In view of nil these considerations, no true and wise friend ? -v 1* # Territorial Govern 01 me policy oi Wi?u.??B ruent*. with the Proviso, can, in our judgment, condemn the resolution of Mr. Root at) "illtimed." Regarded simply in the light of its probable etfects on the plan of the President, no supporter of that policy should have voted against it. Had every Whig from the free States sustained it, Southern Whigs uiight hare been influence J, eventually, to meet their Northern frieuds on the President's plan. Certainly, so long as they showed no disposition to concede one jot or tittle of their pretensions, it wm extreme folly for Northern Whigs, favoring concession in their hearts, to abandon outright their positions. It was playing a very weak game. It was giving nway at ouce, everything they dared giv$, without taking care to secure an equivalent. MrWinthrop charged folly upon Mr. Root and his friends for " showing their hands." The folly iHy at the door of those Northern Whigs who wore really playing a game: it was they who showed their bands, and from that moment their Southern friends had them in their power. The real advocates of Territorial Governments, with the Proviso, played no game?countenanced no tricks?had nothing to conceal. Their object was, " Slavsry R>strutionby Positive Law" and for this they promptly moved and voted.

The following official statement from the AraI to mi I Intellutntcfr of the 20th, confirms the statements made in the newspapers in regard to an invasion of Cuba: "Within the last few days information has been received by the Government, rendering it most probable that a military organization has been set on foot within the United States, formidable both in numbers and from the character of those engaged in It, for the purpose of attacking the Island of Cuba and revolutionizing the Government. "We are informed that the President of the United State*, immediately upon the receipt of the information, directed orders to be tamed for the vessels of the I lome Squadron, an also for the steamer Saranac and frigate (Congress, to proceed forthwith to the Isladd of Cuba, with a view to ascertaining whether any military force, organized in the United States, was proceeding from thence to Cuba, for the purpose of invading that island and revolutionizing the Government, with express instructions, in the event of such being the cose, to prevent the landing of any such force or the carrying out of any such expedition or enterprise; and with further instructions, in the event of a landing having been effected, to prevent the landing of any reiuforoements, or of any arms or provisions under the American (lag, intended for such expedition or enterprise. In obedience to these orders, we understand that the steamer Saranac proceeded to sea on Saturday last, and will probably reach Cuba by Thursday next, where it is expected she will meet the CJermantown, the Albany, and the Vixen. 14 It is confidently expected that the whole naval force will reach the Island of Cuba before any considerable number of those engaged in the enterprise can possibly have effected a landing, and thus prevent a violation of our obligations of amity and peace with Spain." FOREIGN CORRESPONDENCE. Paris, Mai/2, 1 S.'jO. To tin: Editor of itir National . The great capital of the political world has once more spoken, and in clear tones. It has said to the llo^aliat and Bonapartist factions which plot the destruction of the Republic,44 Thus far snail yuu go, uui no tinner. n uoo |>i uuvnuix u the condemnation of the men who would foment anarchy and civil war. The candidate of progress has triumphed ! A week before the election, the republican party was in despair: the Govern, ment was putting into exercise against them all the machiuery of the administration ; the troops supposed to be Socialist hod been sent off; an immense number of voters, some say, 3.1,000, had been struck from the the lists by the Government and police, the circulation of their journals was impeded in every way, large Rums of money had been employed to gain votes, the candidate against them was an honest and brave man who had signalized himself for heroism, and two of their own journals abstained from advocating the election of M. Sue, because of objections to the personal character of the candidate and the manner in which he had been selected. On the contrary, the coalition was confident of victory: an unlooked for chance had given them a popular candidate, their opponents were discouraged, their treasury full, their partisuns united and unflinching. " On the 10th of March" cried the Journal tlei Debats, " we did not go into battle with all our forces; this time it will be different." The night of the last day of the election, the leader of the ooalitlon met in their room in Bn^ert street to await the announcement of their viotory They had ordered a banquet to he served up at midnight, and intended to celebrate in bumpers their victory over (he enemies of religion and social order. Poor fellows! Courier after courier brought in dismal news, and at eleven their numbers began rapidly to diminish ; at twelve, the restaurant keeper looked around in vain for his guests. The banquet hall waa deserted. The victory was an overwhelming one. The Socialist vote has increased beyond the number at the preceding election, and the coalition vote has diminished several thousand. All attempts to explain away this result are useless. It speaks for itself. The coalition journals c > to plain that 100,000 voters staid away from the polls. This is proved to be false from the lists, 1 which show that not more than 70,000 did so. It is an exaggeration of 30,000. Some of the journals of the same party insist on a change of the , electoral law, forcing every man to vote under 1 penalty of a fine. This is a mere pretence to cover \ their defeat, as they are not half as confident as they pretend to be, as to the adhesion to their side of all the non-voters. Forced or not, the vast j ] majority of the population of Paris will vote for progress, reform of abuses, economy in the budget, literal institutions, a free press, public order, and quiet commerce, against prince Presidents who are ever balancing between their oath and treason i against royalist factions who are roady to plunge France into civil war for the honor of wearing the livery of somo brainless youth, whose only merit is that his grandfather or some remote ancestor governed the country very badly ; against the vexations of a police which would place a spy in every family ; against moneyless young adventurers, who would push the President to a coup d'etat and a civil war that would destroy commerce, fill the land with mourning and blood, and arrest the march of civilir.ition The people of Paris want peace and quiet with the development of republican institutions. They abhor civil war and its promoters. This is the meaning of the election of Eugene Sue. It is amusing to witness the confusion and consternation of the coalition camps. The Presidential papers abuse the Legitimixts, the Orleanistsi the Council of .State, the majority of the Assembly, the Socialists, and humanity geuerally They don't forget in their invectives the right of suffrage. The Legitimists lay hearty blows on the shoulders of the Orleanista, who cudgel them in return. Some of them say " to arms!" and are for a St. Bartholomew's day against the Socialists ; others call with great earnestness for the removal of the capital from Faris, and all unite in demanding a change in the electoral law. The Republican party is perfectly calm after its victory. It is assured of its final success at the ballot box, and is preparing itself for the management of the helm of state. The mildness and firmness of the opposition journals of every shade are admirable The discussion of particular forms of socialism is laid aside for the promotion of the great cause of progress. I f these journals maintain their present courts for a year or two longer, there is no doabt whatever of the success of their party at the elections of 1852.

The J third sees the reform a part and parcel of ^ 1 THE NATIONAL El national mind, modified and assimilated to the institutions of the country ; the authors, if alive, are laid on the shelf, as unpractical men, and, ir dead, become demigods. Well, the French Revolution is now in the second stage A new generation of politicians has arisen, which have pushed from the stage of action Louis Hlanc, Lanmrtine, Cremieux, Marie, and others, who founded the Republic. Success is dawning on the principle they advocated, but the time not yet arrived to place their busts in the niches of the great temple of Freedom. They have shared the fate of all Reformers, who are the first to he swept off by the Hood they have let loose. They are in prison, exile, or obscurity. The fate of the founders of the French Republic will be (hat, my dear sir, of yourself aud your colaborers iu the great cause of human rights.

Sir, there are no reformers on whoee name* the pen of the historian will linger more lovingly than on those of the early American abolitionist*. 1 beg pardon for this digression, if it he one to pass from the cause of liberty in the Old World to the same cause in the New. The defenders of each have a hard battle to fight, and have need of each other's syni|>athy and aid. The causes are identical. It is a remarkable fact, that Nhtidcher. i I'errinon, and other persons, who hare signalized themselves in France by their devotion to the abolition cause, are all socialists. The representatives of the liberated blacks all sit on the benches of the Mountain. "The election in the Department of Loire, took place also lost Sunday and Monday. The result was the same as at Paris?the whole Socialist ticket was elected by a majority of about twelve thousand. The Government is so much frightened by the repeated victories of the Republican party, that it is about to present a law providing that no more elections shall be held until the vacancies to be filled shall amount to fifty. This suppression of the popular voice will enable the Royalist sheets to misrepresent public sentiment at pleasure. We shall then have the old song of " This people will have a King." The Government is striking at every mode of "anifest.ation of public opinion Not only voting, ut the Press is to be annulled. An implacable war is now waged by the Prefect of Police, M. Carlier, against the republican journals. S.>me old law gives him the right of licensing the vendors of journals in the streets?his only duty being to see that they are of good character, and not likely to sell prints or papers of an obscene character. Rut M. Carlier claims and exercises the right to license not only street criers, but shopkeepers and booksellers to sell lournals. and to Stipulate the Conxion nPn no Socialist journal is to dc bom dj tnem. as it mis were not enougn, he arrests the curriers of Socialist papers, on the pretence that they are selling on their own account, throws them into prison, seizes their |?apers, ami, when they are tried neit day, it is too Igte to take the journal to subscribers. On Tuesday, five thousand copies of the Evaiemtnt were confiscated by the arrest of the regular carriers. This is M. Bonaparte's way of combating Socialism, and a rough one he will be apt to find it. The press, the popular rote, the right of petition, the right to hold public meetings, and every other check which the people should have on their agents, the officeholders, are terrible to the faithless men now at the head of the French Government. A great many reports are afloat as to the intentions of the ministry. Some say it will present very severe laws against every liberal institution ; others, quite as well informed, say that it will present none of these, without being well assured, in advance, of the disposition of the majority to pass them. It is said that the present ministry is to be dissolved, as soon as their successors can be found. A few assert that the President will make himself Consul, and assume the dictature. Your correspondent inclines to the opinion that little will be done besides an attempt to change in some points the election law. The greater number of the members of the Legislative Assembly are unwilling to follow the chiefs in extreme measures, and are already preparing to look on the opposition as likely to get into power, and, therefore, to be treated with respect. The attempt against the electoral law may give rise to* trouble, but that is the only serious danger. We may expect the ministry to present, in the coming week, some projects of law, designed to feel the pulse of the Assembly. They will act as Clayton does befbre ascending, himself, into the air?let off a few small balloons to find the direction of the wind. If all he right, we shall have their grand ascension. The Royalists are now trying to frighten Paris by agitating the question of removing the capital to Bourges or Tours. Several petitions have been presented to the Assembly for this purpose. The provincial Koynliat journals are out in full ory for this measure. To believe them, it would he the work of a few hours or minutes: the President would go down to Bourges on a mornings train, and, jirrstof Bourges would be the capital of France. One of the vitro journals cites the example of the United States, which never has a large commercial town for its capital. It says that Baton Houge, Albany, Washington, Frankfort, and Columbus, are all small towns, and therefore the French capital should be at some village in the interior. They will gaiu no votes by this agitation. The news has reached town to-day by telegraph, that the Erfurt Parliament has been adjourned. The King of Prussia declares that he adjourns it only for a time long enough to permit the different States to express their resolutions in relation to the Constitution adopted ; but fears are entertained that he intends to prevent its re-assembling, lie scarcely knows what to do, and is, most, probably, continuing the temporising, uncertain course lie has so long held on the same subject. The difficulty between the King of Prussia and the Catholic priesthood has been compromised. The latter make among themselves a written declaration that they do not consider the oath they ire about to take as conflicting with their duties to the Church, and afterwards take the oath withaut reservation. What is the preliminary paper but a reservation 7 The Austrian Emperor has just published some irdinancee giving increased powor to the Cat ho lie clergy in the business of public instruction. The late law in Piedmont, abolishing the privleges of the ecclesiastical courts, and submitting he clergy to the jurisdiction of the civil tribunals, in oommon with other citizens, has been the jtiuse of great disoontent ainoug the scollop-batted rentry. The Archbishop of Turin addressed a iircular to the clergy, urging them to rebellion. An indicternent was found against him, sad be was ordered to appear and answer, but escaped with the aid of friends. No great measure of mercy or policy has signalized the return of the Pope to Rome. One of the few items of interest from that quarter is the rej>ort of the committee of censure of the press, known under the title of 41 Sacred CoHfreqatiori of the Judex.n The particular duty of this committee is the maintenance and spread of ignorance. It has proscribed, in the Papal dominions, the works of Bacon, Pascal, Milton, Leibnitt, Dessartes, Malehranche, Locke, Montesquieu Kant, Bent ham, and, more lately, the works of M. Copierwl. the Protestant divine who votes generally with M. Montalembert, an Italian grammar of Knglish, a geography, and several Ureek and Latin dictionaries. Besides these, it has proscribed a large number of books and pamphlets suspecied of bad tendencies and want of respect for the holy and most tolerant Pontiff. The Austrian Government has demanded of Prussia the extradition of all Hungarians in her limits who took part in the late rebellion, and the expulsion of all others. Prussia has answered by giving up all of the first category, snd declining to expel those of the seootid. A scandalous story has been started in respect to the paternity of the expected heir to the throne jf Spain. Yon need not trust it too implicitly, as it Is circulated by the Orleanists, who are interested politically in having it believed. Louis Philippe profited so much by the suspicions which he formerly threw over the birth of the Duke de Bordeaux, that he has no objection to seeing his son, Montpensier, profit in the same way.

To the E it it or of the National Era : On* of the most open an>I unjustifiable outragts which haa ever l?een perpetrated here occurred ou Friday last ? the kidnapping of a colored man who had lived here for some year*, in the moat public streets, and in broad daylight. Four Kentuckisns, armed with pistols and clubs, Imre him off, after marching five full squares to the river and no resistance off ered?a few atone* thrown at thein by the crowd being the only mark of opposition manifested. The captive called loudly for assistance, but neither the police, nor any one iliMnnutvl tit Hhpratn Kim u?*rp within Knuwin? -~r?? ? --- -?) ? ...B, This occurred between one and two o'clock For the particulars, 1 refer you to the city papers, most of which hare noticed it. and expressed the stroDgewt indignation at the act. Researches hare been made to ascertain whether any evidence exists of his having been a slave, but without success. Those who have heretofore been active among us in efforts to bring the perpetrators of such outrages to justice, and rescue, if possible, the wronged, are taking the proper steps in the matter? with what success remains to be seen. The National Mkdical Convkniion held its annual sessions for the first time in our city last week. The attendance was large, and the proceedings of much interest to those of our citizens who had time to step in and witness the deliheraI lions. The personal appearance of the delegates was on the whole prepossessing; an intelligent, intellectual, benevolent body of men, intent on advancing the healing art. and promoting the welfare of society, had evidently assembled Among other distinguished visiters was the venerable Dr. Caldwell, of Louisville, formerly of Philadelphia, and more lately of Lexington. He is now in his eighty-seventh year, his gray hair and long white board (worn for protection Bgainst bronchitis) adding to his patriarchal appeumuce. There was a general expectation that he would have been chosen President of the Association, but I)r. Mussey, of this city, was elected. The opening address, by Dr.Warren,of Boston, was plait and practical, ; characterized by a great deal of common sense I le took a view of the great reforms which he said had 1 taken place in the medical science in the last halfI century, showing that it had yielded to the spirit I of pro^rrss. Several valuable reports, ?n elevating j the standard of study in the colleges, ?n surgery, I on medical literature, &c., were read and will appear in full in the published volume the Asm recommended by the Association was I?r. Drake's treatise on the principal diseases of the interior valley of North America, lately published ? a volume of great learning und value to tue medical | profession. It is a royal octavo of about J(M) pages, and is to be followed by a second volumv of equal ! extent. j The doctors were not so exclusively absorbed in the 'protlMutm c ... ihepleasures of social enjoyment. The evening before their departure they partook of a sumptuous supper, provided by the faculty of this city at Masonic llall. Including invited guests, about six hundred sat down ; and, from the aooounts we hsve from those who were among the favored number, it must have been a grand affair. Toasts, (drank w ithout wine.) stirring speeches, wit, and good humor, enlivened the feast. Of late years, since the "star of empire" has taken its way westward, our city has become common ground for conventions and national assemblies ot all kinds. One of a religious character, the Presbyterian General Assembly, is nigh at hand; of the doings of which you shall be advised in due time. The opening of the Burnet Hot sk, by a grand sotrf-e on the evening of the .'Id instant, was almost an era in the annalsof ourcity. The prejwrations for the occasion were in a style commensurate w ith the extent of the largest hotel in the West, (ami we might say in the Union.) and the festival, in all its details, was creditably sustained. All the interests of the city were represented in the company assembled, fifteen hundred in number, with representations from ottr sister cities, Louisville, Madison, Maysville, and other of the river towns, which the importance of the occasion had induoed to visit us. i cannot go into details, they are given ih extenso in our dailies, from which, if necessary, you can copy. 1 have before given your readers some description of this magnifiocut building, which may be justly styled the Astor House of the West. It is much larger, however, in extent, and in front makes decidedly a more imposing appearance. I know of no hotel at the Kaat to be compared with it in this respect. It has been opened with every sign of a prosperous and profitable career for its proprietors. Yours, P. CONGRESS. THIRTY-FIRST CONIiKKSS-FIRST SESSION. HENATK. Ti'km>ay, Mat 14, 18.V).

Al?ent from the slave States?Sebastian, Pearce : Butler, Mason. Badger ] Mr. Davis of Mississippi. I offer the following Amendment. To etrike out in the eixth line of the tenth section the words " in respect to African ; slavery," nnd insert the words "with those rights ! of property growing out of the institution of African slavery as it exists in any of the States of this Onion." The object of the amendment is to prevent the Territorial I.egislature from legislating in regard to the right* of property growing outof the institution of slavery. Mr Davis further explained that his intention was to leuve the Legislature at liberty to provide regulations for the enjoyment of slave property in peace and security. The object of the amendment is to restrict the Territorial Legislature from action hostile to property, but not from making necessary provisions for its protection ; so that, instead of saying that "no law shall be passed in respect to African slavery." it should declare that "no law shall be passed interfering with those righta of property which grow out of the institution of African slavery, as it exists in any of the States of this Union'' , As I stated, laws in respect to African slavery are i necessary wherever such slaves are held. The Senator from Kentucky knows that as well a* any | one can; he know 9 that there are police regulations I which must he enacted where that species of property is held. In reply to a remark by Mr. Clay, that it was not likely that slavery would go to New Mexico. Mr. Davis said? I am not one of those who hold that it is a settled fact that slaves will not go into these Territories. Little is known of the interior of this country, very little of a large portion of the territory included in the limits of I ieseret or Utah. We know, I however, by those signs which are never to be I mistaken by the geographer, by the character of ; the lower part of the Colorado river, that it must | drain an extensive valley, and that it must run through an alluvial spil; and we have, froin the accounts of hunters and others, reason to believe that there are wide spread and fruitful valleys in that country. 1 will say mora, although it is perhaps likely to increase the opposition to my amendment. 1 say, in a spirit of candor, that I believe i that the valley of the Gila is rich in gold, and that ; slaves will probably be taken there for the same purpose for which they would have been taken to California, if they had not l>eeu excluded by the failure to protect and the threats to prohibit that species of property by Congress. The debate was continued by Mr. Yulee of Florida, who sustained the amendment, and denounced the bill; and by Mr. Foote, who argued in favor of a spirit of compromise and conciliation. Tiiussdav, May 16, 18.10. Numerous petitions on the subject of slavery and other matters were presented. A bill to promote the progress of the useful arts came up for consideration. Mr. Turney moved to strike out the 8th section, and insert? M That in all applications to Congress or to the Patent Office for an extension of any patent, or an addition to it, or rr b?rs> tS the Xiao, the applicant shall give notice of such intended application | _ . I -1. - ' ? a 1 t-M ? ' mill, l?ll luin.iiu^nraiiinj mo uniinnuiiuu ui business at the Patent Office, be reduced to writing, and be open to public inspection, wm adopted. The subject wan laid over. Mr. Yuleo offered a resolution (which lien over) culling upon the President for information in regard to revolutionary movements in Cuba. TheNenato then proceeded to the consideration of the OmuibuH bill. Mr Clemens reeumed the speech he commenced on Thursday lent, and in the course of his remark* endeavored to fasten u[>on Mr Foots the charge of inconsistency. He opposed the bill strenuously. Mr. Foots replied, vindicating his consistency, and advocating the bill with great earnestness After a few remarks by Mr. Turuey, the Sen- 1 ate went into Executive session. TursoAY, Mav 21, 18-*>0. The resolution of Mr. Yules, concerning Cobs, < after remarks by Messrs. Webster and Clay, was laid upon the table. The Omnibus bill was taken up. and Mr. MonM of Louisiana innde a vigorous attack upon it, in all its parts. Mr. Clay replied, indicating a disposition to agree to any reasonable mollifications that might be proposed. He also took occasion to condemn the President's policy. IIOUSK OF REPHUKmTIVM. Tpbsimy, MAY 14, 1850. Mr. Htsnly of North Carolina moved the i usual resolution to terminate debate on the President's California Message, in Committee of the i Whole on the state of the Union, on the 22d inst.

The omnihus bill was taken up, and Mr. Davis, with a view to prevent all misconception, concluded to modify his amendment, by letting the section of the bill stAnd as proposed, and adding after the word " slavery," the following " Provided, That nothing contained in this section shall be so construed as to prevent the Territorial Legislature from passing such police or other laws, or providing such remedies, as may protect the owners of African slaves in Baid Territory, or who may remove to said Territory, in the enjoyment of such rights as they may possess under the Constitution and laws of the United States." Mr. Foote gave notice of his intention to oiler the following amendment Strike out the words " in respect to," before " slavery," and insert. " admitting or excluding, establishing or prohibiting." Mr. Clemens gave notice of the following amendment, which he intended to offer " 1 at. The Itoundaries of the said State of Texas shall tie confirmed and acknowledged by her law of limits, passed by her Congress in lHltfi.and the sovereignty over the whole of the territory included in said boundary shall tie reserved alisolutelv to tho said State of Texas.

That, for the safety and comfort of the white inhabitants, and to euaiile the GoTernment of the United States the better to repress Indian depredations, and otherwise control tnem in such manner as the peace of the country may require, the various Indian tribes within said .State shall be collected and removed to that part of the State of Texas which lies north of the M tth parallel of north latitude; and such collection and removal shall be made under the authority and at the expense of the United States" Mr. Foote resumed his remarks on the hill, and was followed by Mr. Clemens.
