A CONSTITUTIONAL PA LIT V.
There are various indications in the po- i:

country mav yet be transferred to those i
who have higher flints and holier purpo* '

party is needed by the country,
that the ici;-.s of power may for once be taken
from mere traders in politics, whose |
chief objects seems to be nothing greater |
than the approbation of the spoils of office, j
and to pursue a policy that will keep ,
them in power.
What is it that, has made Free .S'oil the

Why is it that "coalitions' have become
the ruling policy of both parties in that
latitude? What, in short, has begotten
that Rcctional excitement which threatens
? and wVi<:h will, if successful?eventu- ,
ally produce a disruption of the federal ;
I nion ? The baseness and dishonesty of
party politicians?the malicious envy of)
Martin Van Bnren?first gave Free Soil
that distinctive character as a political
organization, which now pollutes both
parties at the North. It was the uuright- \
eous promptings of ambition to grasp the

it is this unhallowed thirst for place and
power which, wc feel assured, actuates
by far the larger portion of the poltlic'ans j

must the honest masses of the people
pursue to put an end to this dimgerous
and degrading state of alVf*irs'? The New

SKNATOK HOUSTON.
This gen tie .11 an has written a letter in
reply to one from Col. Gadsden, hoth of '
which arc published in the 7'exas papers. |
A largo portion of the letter is grossly |
personal. 7'lie concluding paragraphs
affirming his opinions nnd purposes in relation
to the Wilniot Proviso we copy as
a matter of interest at the present time.
"I have been charged by some unenndid
persons with being in favor of the Wilniot
Proviso. The charge I pronounce
false. No one is or can be more opposed
to the Wilmot Proviso than I am, and
ever have been. This Proviso, by its
very terms, applied only to territory hereafter
to be acquired by treaty or otherwise;
and not to that airraid v lwl<l l>v tli<? TTni.
tod States. It had 110 connection, with, 1
or bearing upo'i the Oregon Hill nnd in
guiding my notion upon that measure,
the Wilmot Proviso had 110 inlluence. I
regard itas of mischievous tendency, and
doubt not that it originated with those
who cared more for their own advancement,
than for the harmony nnd well-being
of the Union.

"Legislation by Congress on the subject
of slavery in tlie territories, is, in my
opinion, useless and injudicious. The line
of demarcation between free and slave
states is fixed by the compromise. Tho
right of States, lying south of the line, to
be admitted with the institution of slavery,
if tliopcoplo n&king surh admission require
it, ennnot be questioned.

Opinion be Cnfiintfcd, should Con^resH hy ,

T r.ssoi t the principle that Congress has
110 light to legislate upon the subject of
slavery in any of the Territories of this
I'nion. It is an institution exclusively of (
domestic regulation, subject alone to the
control, jurisdiction and authority of the i
several Slates, each acting in lependently
for Itself. ConjjrGss Would have the same
ri^ht to impose slavery upon a State un- t
willing to receive it. as to exclude it from
one desirous of retaining it. The ndoption
or abandonment of the institution, in .
like manner, refers itself cntiielv to the
choice and option of each independent
member of tlie Confederacy. Should
New York determine to revive the insti- I
tut ion of slavery within her limits, or Lo- 1
uisiaua nesolvio to abolish it in her own, so
1on<r as each retained a republican foim
of government, I lie National Congress
could no more rightfully interfere with
the action of cither in this "behalf, than
the Kliati of Tartarv or the Pa: ha of Kgvpt.

importance were an action for a breach of a

a verdict of nix hundred and twenty-dollars,? I
and a case against William Young for passing i
counterfeit Bank llills, in which the Jury re- I
twned a verdict of "guilty." In the first case

He was also indicted for nil assault and 1 lattery

The stirring intelligence from Europe

the probable occurrence of a general war,
in Km rope, gro.ving out of the Austria
Russian quarrel with Turkey, produces r
general belief that our own petty dispute*

settled, by the acquiescence of those now

wards tliis country, on their part, the
United States may dcsiie. "".Tie co-operation
of the United States in a war against
Russia, in support of the Porte, is already

The following is n letter dated at Hotel

To surrender these patriots to the
brutal demands of their persecutors,
i would be cowardly concession and last'nS
disgrace to any country, and we are
rejoiced to sec, through the press, that
the Sultan has adopted tlmt honorable
course which meets the applause of civil
izcd men, nnd which will ndorn the
brightest pagus of his history. We just

however, that the cord would bo ruthlccsI
ly applied to him v> ithout delay, in order
I to insure his ignominious death, by way of
! example; ami that a similar fate, or tho
worse terrors of Siberian exile, would
overtake the rest. We are sure that the
American Minister will not allow any
other diplomatist to take the lead, nor
' hesitutc in going to the uttermost for it
seems that the population of the Union
' have risen cn nmsxc to sympathise with
