think it comp'tent for CongresR to seek this in formation, and as it seems to 'be -assumed that sooner or later a road munst be constructed, I thin*k it, therefore, wise and proper that we should have all the information on the subject. Be sides in another point of view, it may be neces sary as one of the means of tulfilling our oblin .tions under the treaty with, Mcxiio; tilat we should have a military road'throngh the territo rv lying between Texams and California. Whether that will be nccess:ry or not will depend very much upon the information to be gathered by the-sorrey contemplated in the amendment of theSt-%nator from Pennsylvania. And what may -e the kind of such a rond must depend upon - t* same information. If in good faith, a road for military purposes, looking to an actual state uti'war for its employment, I could well justify myself in that view -of the subject. to vote for any road to subserve the ends contemplated: and whether a railroad or any other kind of road, would depend mr re upon the purposes in view than upon any thing else. I now speak of a road running throuh the Territories of the United States; and ir such an one should be a highway for passengers or a channel for commerce, there would be no objection to it, beeause it may be used for more purposes than one. According to the siews of the honorable Senator-from 11 i' nois, no.military road, such as tihe one proposed ii. this 1111, will ever-be necessary in times of peace. and whether Ienn regard it as a military road, for war, must depend upon information and a conj*uneture of a ffairs which has not yet Been presented to my mind. But the fact cannot be disgnised, and ought not to be, that this rn.td is intended to open a commercial communication between California and the Mississippi river. It is a rond for tihe benefit of some of the States of this Confede racy, and by money to be contributed, and by a charter to be conferred. under the Federal Gov ernment. It may be th:tt if we have full infor mation, such as might be procured under the amendment of the Senator from Pennsylvania. no such rond as the one proposed here wot!d ever be built, or one of a very difftre:t char.c ter. and liable to fewer objectia'ns. This survey might be regarded as no more than an explora tion, which is fulv warranted by precedents. Mr. President, I have thus in a earsorv m:tn ner thrown out my views, both upon the eN.t sure itself and nmn of the topics that htave been brought under the diseuion in connecti'n with it. I have appeal-d to the spirit of the Cinstitution of our forefathers. I have referred to the authority of1-rent- nnmes. I have intimn ted the dangers or disregarding tie provisions of the written Co.nsthution. I have intimated the necessily of some amendinent of it, with a viw to accommodate it to thie-progress of events and tle developments of Utle age. The worst ot despotisms would be an irresponsible Demoer.a cy, left without restraint to consult the tempta tions of interest, or-to he influenced by the ex eitement of passion. Some one has quaintly said " that constitutions and laws are deliber ately made by the few when sober, to restrain the madness of the many when intoxicated." Republics may become as tyranical, under an unrestrained majority. ns any other form of gov I ernment can be. Of all despotisms, there is nothing so dangerous as the dominion of an in. terested majority. It is said of the Roman peo ple, that they felt themse,-es more disposed to indulge their freedom, because they knew they would be restrained by the veto of their tribunes. Now, sir, what do I behold: This Govern ment, once simple in its admministration, mnd comparatively confined in its operation, throw. ing aw:ay all the restraints and disregarling all the limiintions which gave it a proper direction and confined it withini its proper .sphere. It i:s abhout becoming, in my opinion, a Govertnment of legishittive discretion; to become an agency to colleet the people's money to be distribute~d for any purpose thma' may be effected by. the mere prpr~ition ofimoney; and I fear, in ad dition,, L m:'v saty thamt the President's veto can affr no security, and that hi's election is to be looked to as a mere prize combat for office. Wi:h these convictions on my mind, I want sonme greater "ecenrit y for the regulation of com merce", tunder a systein of internal improvements, th n the tit.t of a ninjorty-.Ifearatemted mna If it were a new qnest ion, I would say as much. The grent and paramount indtneement foir the formation of the Federal Constittution was to regulate commerce, by reconcilinmg the hostile and conflie ting legislamtion of the States upon the same subject. The great object waus to hamve utniform rules and r'gultat ions applienble to all the Sttes. A-nd eveni this pow~er thuns to be conferred wa~s jealously regarde-d in the Con vent ion bty the represetltives of the rural and agricultural interest of the country, and tuntil very nearly the close of the Convent ion there was a elamuse in the Constiintion requiritng a vote of two-thirds to pass a'y measure regulating commerce, and thamt, too, by declaratory laws merely, a:nd not looking, :as the history of thme country and the debates of thme Convetiin show. to an appropriamtion of tonetiy for that purpose. The paroposit ion to regulate commnierce by diht ging canals or building roads was made a~nd ecx pres-ly rejected in the Convention. If thme vote of two-thirds, lookingu to the kind of regulat ion I have referred to, w:: required amt that time. wvit h fewer adversary interests involved, how tmnuh more tnecessary is it now, when prepon derat m interests have aet nally takeni possession of thte Govertnent ? They niav be sublserve-d, but it will be at a dreadfui cost, if the Constitu lien ha~s to be broken. I tell gent lenmen, with deep sincerity-, that I am. in reality, a better friend to the Cotnstit n tion of t his coutry, by Opposing entlargenments of power, thani those who resort to thenm for temporary purposes. There is no datnger so great as that which blinds tus to the consequtences oif the iture, aund no right has ainy security tun less it has the guarantee of protection. Thme lamst resort which an intelligent people should make is to revolution for the vindication of their rights, atnd the greautest danger of 'ineh a resort will be a disregamrd of the organie law of existence. When it shal:l be ascertained thaut this Confederacy, in the tnamte of its Union, shall have survived the Constitution of its existetnce, it deserves to perish.

ARTHUR SIMKINS, EDITOR, EDGEFIELD, S. C. WEDNESDAY MARCH 2, 1853. Zatal Affray. WE regret to learn that a serious difficulty occurred near this place on Thursday night last between a re spectable citizen of our neighborhood, Mr. CARsoN WARREN and some up-country wagoners, in % hich one ofthe latter was killed by Mr. WAR REN. Upon the most reliihle information we are enabled to state that 31r. W. will surrender himself in a few days, having determined to undergo his trial at the coming term of Court. We are informed that his surrender would have been made before this, but for the severity of the wounds received on the night of the unfortunate occurrence. Of the- circumstances of this case we forbear to speak, as they will he brought to-the public view in the course of a few week%.. Judge Butler's Speech. In accordance with our promise of last wcek, we present to our readers in this number the entire speech of lon. A. P. BUTLER, to the exclusion of our usual variety. We regard it as the greatest political effort of our Senator's lire, and are pretty certain that the great majirity of our readers will agree with us after a careful study of its merits. It is a source of grati fication to its all, to know that our old wheel-horse not only wears well but gets better and better the further he goes. Gen. Bonham. THE Palmetto Banner (Columbia) states upon the authority of the - Southern Patriot" that our fellow citizen, Gen. BoNl.s1, has been on to see Gen. P:ERcE and is to receive the Consulshipappointment to Liver pool. A portion at least of this statement is incorrect. Gen. B. has not been absent from home of la:e. nor do we believe that lie lns received any assurance (if such appointment. Yet we should not be surprisud to hear at any time that it had been conferred upon him. From his card, however, in antuier column, it will be seen that ie proposes to give his attention to the practice of Law ani Equity. More Agricultural Papers. LAST week we noticed several Journals of an agri cultural cast. This week we find several nore upon our table, which deserve attention. The first of these we shall mention is Tu FARMER AND PLANTER. Tius old friend has given us, for Fehruary, a very excellent feast of substantials-just such an onte a a " Farmer J Planter" should always serve tip. May Messrs. SEAnORn and GIrLMAN continue to prosper as long-as Agrioulture continues to he the " art of arts !" What next ? Nothing less than the SOUTIHERN CULTIvATOR. Tiis is a work of high standing and large circula tion. The number before us contains a large, yes, a rcallyt large amount of very useful information. It is published in Augusta, Ga., an excellent latLitude for Carolina farmers. But here also is TuE COTTON PLANT. Titis paper is publiled in Washington City aml'iii edited by C. G. BAYLoR.

WE refer our agricttlturai friends to a commuunica tion on our fourth page-nut so much for the advan tage to be derived fromiiw perusal as to give themn ati idea of the very extensive correspondence witich our recent call upon11 the farmers of Edgefield has broutght intto being.- Without hesitation, or circumlocution, or grevica'aniieinggeration;-we. now enphatically announce the fact--(and does it not speak volumes for the public spirit, intelligence and edifying meittal industry of oitr planters ?)-we say, we announce thte fact that, in consequence of our urgent appeaul made three weeks ago. one single entire article, n ithot a line antiss, htas already reached our san':tumn, which sail article is the identical onie. on otr foturtht page, to which we nowy refer each astoutishied reader. Aul we ask, fellow-citizenis, is that you won't conme crowding its int thtis mantner, until we get ready for you. Our intention is to give our innumtertable agricultural cor respondlents a full and fair sihowing. To this end, we are having a long rosy of pigeon holes conistrtuctedl in our office for the receptioun oif their mutituinous ravors. We'li have each one of these htoles marked in a way to designate what kind of dissertations it contains; and then we'il put thte articles all in accord ing to thie (date of their arrival; and it may he thlat we will huave~ an eye to some aiphabectical arrange ment. (we donit know whlat ;) andi, furthermore, we think of htaving three great big compartmettts labelleid " good," "very good" and "exceilenit," so as to locate these articles according to thieir respective mserits. But stop-let's see-this woitld lplay thuntrder with our pigeon htoles, and that would not do.-Well, we are a little " flnsterated"' at present and dotit kntow exactly what we wvill do. But when we get over the effects of this battalion rutsh tipont our colutmtt, anid come to our senses properly, we'll lhe certain to do the very best we catn antd meet thte pressing emergency like very veteratis ofthte craft, even abough we shmud be reduced to the necessity of -nmploying clerks and doiulinig tihe size of ouir paper. But. in earnest, wec ore mucht oblligedl to ottr friend from Saltila for the good example lie has set to his lrother-farmners by leading off as lie has done.

THr present is an age of extravaganzas. At least it is the case in the Republic bf Letters. In all the departments of literature this peculiarity is very ob servable. It is especially so in newspaper love-lyrica. The amount of abominable stuff spread before the public eye in this trashy garb, partakes, as toquantity, of the character of an inundation. With the rest, we, perhaps, have sent abroad through our columns about as much, in proportion to our size and circulation, as most other papers. But we have a strong notion of crying out "peccari" and of doing a little better for the fut,;re. There is certainly not one in a hundred of such productions worthy of being termed respecta. ble. The great majority of them are absolutely stupid and ridiculous. Here, now, are three of the tribe upon our table, Fent by the last mails to a'dorn the pages of the Adeertiser. The authors, doubtless, consid er them quite as touching and as tender as Anacre. on's best. That all may see how near they approach that standard of poetical composition, we will give a sample or two from each. The first seems to he a husband's rhapsody upon the perfections of his " cara sposa," and begins thus: Oh loveliest of the hump.n kind, My precious spouse Elian No mortal tongue can tell how mucha Thy husband's love doth prize her." What a pity the uxorious poet could'nt " prize" out of his brain a better beginning. But we suppose he thinks the change of pronoun in the last line is amply compensated for by the next verse, in which he flies off thus: " In the far desert or the sea Though I should e'er he stranded 1ll think myself, if but with thee, In blissful Eden landed." Well really that is stubline-far above all comment. So we pass on to another verse, which improves upon the foregoihg-one as follows: " I'd sink into the ocean deep, Care not if ne'er they found me, So I could know that thy sweet arms In love were lucked around me." Only see how the fellow " throws himself away" as lie grows warmer upon the engrossing theme of his devotion. Verily Sappho was nothing to this enthu. siastic ".ER aY." Ile surely must he right in the middle of the 1loney-moon. But hear him once more. " Il tend thee on through good anal ill Like some sweet-scented flower When'er I eense t do it well. Then blasted he the hour !" Confound the fellow! take hm out and kill him. "Tend" the mischief! You would do much better to go and " tend" your corn field or your ganlen that you!may he certain of same " bread and taters" against the time when you will have a set of squalling ba. hies around you. But enough of our amorous Bene dict.-Let us turn to another " kitten" and obrerve how he " cries mew." The signatira stuck on to the production we are now about to notice is " AYNTous," from which it would appear that the author is somewhat classical as well as sentimental in his tastes. The appositeness of the " nom de plume" we are unable to dircovere unless it he that Antinous of old sacraficed himself on account of a man, while this modern " ANTINOUS" is ready to do the same thing for a woman. With this slight sraining of the genders. it may pass. It seems that the beloved object of our poet's affections is giv ing.lhim the " cold shoulder" just at this time, which will account for the strange intermixture of reproach as. oaths aon I vows exhibited in his ode. The nieas ure seems to be an alternation of the Sapphic and Adonic. And thus it goes: "Thou, who wast late so kind to me, Poor slave of thy beauty Ilear me once nore, while swearing to thee Love's ceaseless duaty ! " Are all the 'orighat charms' of'a truthiflu laeart, (Which I have thought thine,) About to take wings and forever depart From this ruina'd shrine?" We are compelled by an overcoming sense of both cratioun to stop here andi ask ourself and each reader the question, " what can 1e. meant by, ' this ruined shrine I'" It may be that allusion is had to some im aginary altar which the lover has erected,.ini some secluded grotto of Fatncy's realm, for the worship of this dear, inaconstanit one-* Or, as this interpretation inavolves a rather outrageous potfc~i'1iRfes,ihweti8 perhaps be~fairer to -suppose -that lie meant his own heart. If the latter, he should have written a preface to Isis effusion, particuilarly requesting every one to imagine that, at the fourth line of his second verse, the right hand of the writer is placed upon his. left breast while hsis eyes are upturned to high heaven, as much as tosay, "This heart of mineu Is the rrrined sharinue." Taking it for granted then that this is the proper exj.lantation of this difficulty, let u.s now go on with a fewv more verse.s: " Oh ! list, mnaden, list ! and hear me vowv 'That. for thtee, thee only, Mvy snail's in a bright Idaz xof love-And now Wilt thou leave me bitehy I" There now, lhe has fairly castlhimself into purgatory. Ihis very soul has been mn a " barighit blaze" nowv for nearly a weelR, according toi Ihis own acrcotunt. (The piece is dated Feb. 23, 1853.) Poor man ! if that souil uf Ihis he material, as some mtaintain, it rat be well nigh hturnt to a cintder by this time. Bitt hear hims again in his last verse-: " Bitt whiether I meet wvithi thy love or scorn, Oh let me assure thee, This u inchianging bosom. thsoughi tatter'd and torn Will ever tadore thee." "'Tautcr'd and torn," quoth lie ! Those terms wvould certainaly be more appropriate to the nian's shirt bosom thtan toa his bosom of flesh and blood. We grant how :ver that it is perfectly legitimate to employ these par. ticiples in. a figurative sense, especially when they 'etm to bie takeun from a source so proximate ns the ratter coveritng of his immiolated breast. Poor " An. mious!" your fair Delilah has butchered you, and in return, you: hare butchered the Muse of Poesy. You tre a very tamc-sr.irited Icarus.

Of the thirnl piece we have room to say nothing, -xcept that at strikes its as being a very badly executed .heft froim a very so-so originsal.. Tlhe "original" :lor of the fair " nymph's" hair was brown. But the :opyist, preferring trusth to rhyme, has substituted ' black," there by matching the " crown" of the next ine most euphioniously. Here is thme piece: TO MISS MARY C. -. Thtere is a beauteous little dame, Cathu'rinae is this ntymph's narme; Shte has eyes like some young fawn's, Tripping wild o'er Southern lawnts.

It is a sheet of minimum size, 01 coarse paper, but well enough printed. One D.

AndI, thus tr, we find no reason to decide against onsr old fa orite. Btu.wrsa is certein-y, in his "Alice" and sler novels, more watrmflr innhginative, anid his latn g may be richter a't rima sthasn than of old Sir VALTR.

Our Opinion of Ole Bull. We know very well that it is a matter of no en sequence. nniong the " dilettanti," what a connti eiitor may think or say of the 'artistie" merits any great " master."
