You said I did not make my theory manifest, you did not tell mc how. Would you mean mc to publish it too one or two pa pers, or call a few together and tell them all about it. In that case how would the farmers, tho mariners in Europe and America know it. Did Franklin or New ton Fend their theory to bo published in a newspaper? Did Lieutenant Marcy send his theory on Navigation to newspapers? not at all, he published books, you see.

Last spring I called on tho Governor and other authority of this State to point out the way, they took no notice.

Editor Aih-crtUer, and other gentlemen. The letter was directed to Secretary Mc Lei laud, he said his department had nothing to do with such things, ho Kent it to Lieutenant Marcy, of the National Obser vatory, he said I proposed to do that which he was in duty bound to consider as much of an imbosspability as to judge of the mass of the universe before Newton's t'uiie, but recommended mc to meet the American Association, at Albany next summer, '55, and submit my theory fur their consideration. I wrote back to Lieut. Marcy if he wish to order me in his pre senee, I would lay tho matter before him, he answered and said he had no official jurisdL'tim, there the matter stands at present. Will the people of Michigan bring this matter to the notice of the Leg islature? I would pledge my life, my for tune and reputation to support my theory if neccssarr. Honor to the first move. W. W.

TUc Latest I'hfisc of Popular Soxcrcia'j . The doctrine of Popular Sovereignty, as practically and theoretically illustrated by the Slavco -racy, a--sumes as many differ ent aspects as Proteus had shapes. Tho h- t explanation of the doctrine which we have seen, we find kith:1 lat number of the Paw Paw Fir.n 7Vm; in an article head ed "Popular Sovereignty" from which we quote the fallowing remarks cxpro--ive of the Editor's vIctts as to the mnn- 77 T ri Kansas is to bo ascertained :!nd deter mined in reference to their State Consti tution. Speaking of the doctrine of Popu lar Sovereignty, tho Editor remarks r.s follows : " The whole democratic party are united 'in their views in support of this doe " trine. President would never sanc- '' ti )ii the forcing of a Constitution upon 'the people of Kansas against their will; and whether the Lecomj ton Ctmstitu ' tion is in accordance with, oc opposed t the will of the people of Xan-as, is a 'question for Congress to decide, and th" President hai left it to tludr discretion. Here we have it, in fo many word-, that the question whether the people of Kansas are or arc not in favor of the Le eompion Constitution, is a question for Conyi'mx to decide. The editor of the I'ree Prcs is no generally remarkable for clearness in stating his doctrines, nor is ho noteJfor being very explicit in defining hispositions ; but surely no one can complain that the above is not suffieientlyclcar and explicit. Wo had supposed, and we have no doubt that the people of Kansas supposed, that " whether the Lecomptou Constitu tion was in accordance with, or opposed to tho will of the people of Kansas," was a question for the people of Kansas them selves to decide, by their voters upon that direct question; but it seems that editor Yan Fossen and President Buchanan take a different view of the subject. The President will not sanction the for cing of a Constitution upou them atnuts? titir u-il. O no. But then "whither the constitution is in accordance with or opposed their will, is for Cwjm.s to thriilc" and if the President, by tho force of the patronage at his command, can induce Congress to decide it in favor of the Lccomplon Constitution, as he is endeavoring to do, then, of course, the people have nothing more to say; for Congress will then have decided that tl at Constitution " is in accordance with tho will of the people of Kansas j" and that being a question for Congress to decide, their decision musV, of course, be conclu sive. This is the latest phase of tho doctrine of Popular Sovereignty, and perfectly in accordance with the course pursued by the Administration, and the democratic members of Congress generally, although very different fiom tho views expressed by Senators IVdgta and Stuart. mm .

As is common with everything in that paper, a cloven foot stuck out of the article. The whole tiling stirred up tho folks over the river, and the Windsor Herald thereupon comes out as follows : " Had the account been written an a matter of news fcimply, wo might have given credence to it; but it is so mixed up with the prejudice always shown in that paper to the cause of abolitionism, that little reliance can be placed upon the statement. It assumes Young to be a ne gro, which is not the facias there is no nejiro blood in his composition ; and that he bad been protected by tho negro-worshipers. Young was convicted on col on d evidence, and uonc were more disap pointed at his escape from jail than the colored people. Wo must, therefore, have further information before wc can believe thi story."
