The introduction of the territorial bills in the Senate, has aVady verified this prediction. The adminis tration is acknowledged to be in favor of the pas-'-ue of those bills; and the test of faithfulness to tiw adjustment is about to be applied to ait preten Arr. Wliiie we regret to see the slavery question ajiin require a settlement, it is a little consolation ' that yo sJiall sec a touchstone applied to whigger . Tho Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune writes to that paper as follows: " Tlie "Vhi" papers hero say that if Southern Whigs vo'.e for Douglas's bill, it.is an end of all at- ie:np"s to keep np a Whig party." " There is tfuA in this assertion. And perhaps tins is the reason why Mr. Bell, of this State, is K't down as opposed to the bill If Southern v!i?"S should repudiate an alliance with the north nn ftee-soilers, there will be no euch thing as a w hi j party in 1S3G. And so, perhaps, southern !iig aspirants for the Presidency will shape their course so as to keepjalive the only question upon which the whig party'nbrth can again rally. We usball. watch the course of these politicians with a '"" curiosity excited by their professed fear of a vio lation of the compromise during the last year, but '" with neither dread nor alarm. The same correspondent of the Tribune gives a ' -ill- iwful, projpect for the passage of the bill. He says: " There is nothing talked or but Nebraska. A Vdistitiguisbed Representative says it is ascertained - ! tint there U a majority of seventeen in the Senate , ' In favor of the bi'.l, and if a vote was taken in the llouje to-da-, it would be found that there was a .majority in its favor ot trom eleven to inirtcen Htvsavs about four Southern VhiRS will vote against it three from Missouri. That is his opin ion." The "Washington correspondent of the Baltimore .' Sun writes that "The administration claims credit for having '" fbteseeri and prepared for the adoption of the non intervention policy. They rest the wisdom of the ro-Milion upon tins question. It they had excluded tiie Free Sorters from a share of the spoils, then, as l.-tihey now say, they would have had the whole - 'North against them on the Nebraska question. But, m matters ire. thev expect to carry lor the bill a large portion of the Northern democrats, and even those who acquiesced in, without approving, tho compromise of ISoO." The administration has formed no "coalition" with free sellers. It has simply recognized as democrats all who faithfully adhere to the Baltimore ' platform of 1850. We hope and believe that, as the Suns correspondent suppose?, the wisdom of that policy will bo proved by the course of the 1.01 them democracy in this crisis. The Baltimore Argus truly says: " The Nebraska bill is to be the test of principle, and the proof of fidelity to the Compromise and t:io Union. We eo thought when it was first intro- duccd, and subsequent events have more than re alized our expectations. We have said before, v.-e - tpj for the bill and against all reslrictwus. The tor , utories belonging to this Government should be ' alike free to all our people to make them other wise is unj'ist: and we have confidence in the jus tice, wisdom, and patriotism of Congress, that the principle? of the compromise will be sustained, and the hiiruieny ol the Union preserved, by abstaining . liom any interference with that arrangement which lhe voice of the people has so emphatically endorsed as a "finality.'' We believe that every friend of the country has had a surleit of the slavery discus Hm ; all have seen that such discussions are only proJuriive of evil, and all should desire to avoid i hem for the future. Let the Territories be free for every cilizon alike, and let them when they deter mine upon their State constitution, determine upon uhutiusututions shall be incorporated with itspro isions. This we think is the true republican creed, and the only safe ground to assume." Let U5 see how our whig neighbors meet this test, and keep in the whig organisation ! Ah! brethren! we told ycu last summer, when, the compromise being in no danger, you were so fear fid for it. that a time would come to test your own sincerity as well that of the men whom you were then assai'ing! We told you that you would be the first to sufiVr from the public judgment you were then forming. We told you that you were indulging too freely overnight, and to beware of the headache of the morning. And now, walk up and defend the compromise as a final settlement of tho slavery question, and see how many of your northern friends will stand by you! But do not, for the take of keeping togeiher the wretched remnant of yjur party, repudiate that settlement. r uir.TY-Tuinn congress first session. "Washington, Feb. 4.

NEWS OF THE DAY IN BRIEF. Fibes :x New York. From Saturday morning last to Monday morning, in forty-eight hours, there occured in the. city of Now York seven fires, by two of which at least one hundred families were rendered homeless! On Saturday night a fire occurred on Elm, Centre, Pearl, and Duane streets, by which some fifty poor families were turned out of doors. Tho 2imes says "Most of the sufferers lost the larger portion of their furniture in addition to being driven from beneath their roofs at the dead hour of night, with the thermometer at sixteen de gress above zero. It was intensely cold, and the wind blew such a gale as to carry the burning cin ders and sparks a distance of several blocks. The despair and suffering of the countenances of those robbed of their homos, and the suffering of the thin ly clad children, as the piercing wind came in con tact with their shivering bodies, formed a painful picture, that must bo witnessed to be realized, as it beggars description." Another occured in the first ward, in the vicinity of the Battery. By this conflagration there were probably not less than forty or fifty poor families turned into the public streets, and left to the mercy of their neighbors and the police. Many of the suf ferers were conveyed to the station-house, others were taken to the dwelling-houses in the vicinity and, finally, the balance of them were placed in a large room at No. 0 Pearl street, procured by the police, where they were kept warm for the night The loss by the fire on Duane street is estimated at from $150,000 to S175.000. The pnncipal suffer era are Peter Morris & Co., proprietors of the Columbian Foundry, about $100,000; Turner, Lane, & Morris, Glass Cutters, $15,000; C. D. Brant. Clock Manufacturer, S20.000. There was an insurance on the whole of about $50,000. We learn from the Lexington, Mississippi, Advertiser, that a destructive fire occurred at the town of Tehola, Holmes county, Mississippi, on the 22d ult, which destroyed two cotton warehouses containing 4,600 bales of cotton, and other proper ty to the amount of $200,000. The fire originated in some boys tying a pack of fire-crackere to a dog's tail, and the frightened animal ran into the shed for protection, and communicated the fire to the cotton, So rapid was the spread of theflainea, that only 27 bales were saved from the two sheds. The loss is confined mostly to Holmes county, and will be felt pretty generally among the planters of that county. Challenge. The New Orleans -Picoryinecontains an advertisement from Mr. ,Tex Brock, in which he offers to back the progeny of Boston against any horses that can be produced against them, on condi tions (says the Picayune,) which are very explicitly stated and which seem to bo quite fair. He first offers to run two of them against two of any other pedigree, two mile heats, over the Metaire Course, on the 24th ol March next, for $5,000 or $10,000; and then he offers to run the same match over New market Course at Petersburg, Va., on the 12th of June next for $10,000. He also offers to run four of the get of Boston, in "Post Stake," over the Me taire Course for $10,000 or $20,000 a side, two mile heats, March 24 th, three mile heals April 10th, and four mile heats April 24tb; or he will run a similar match over the Petersburg Course on the 12th, 17th and 24th of June; or lie will name the same fonr hores for $5,000, for an "inside stake" on the Cth, 7thorSth of April. Julia Deax ha3 accepted an offer of $20, 000 and expenses for sixty nights to appear in California. She will leave for the gold region from New York in March next A.8pecial telegraphic dispatch from tho town of London, Ohio, to the Cincinnati Columbian, states that a most destructive fire broke out there on the morning of the 2d inst, about 2 o'clock. Two whole squares were swept clean ; five dry goods store, two drug stores, the telegraph office, Odd Fellows' Hall, two shoe stores, and the Ameri can Hotel, besides two clothing stores, one printing office, one furniture store house, and several other buildings, were destroyed. The loss i3 estimated at $200,000, but cannot be definitely ascertained. It is supposed to have been the work of an incen diary, as several houses in different parts of the town were broken open. The amount of insur ance not reported. London is on the Cincinnati and Cleveland Rail road, between Xenia and Columbus. Tho rumors of revolutions in Bolivia and Peru are confirmed. In the former country the administration of General Beluz has been deposed, and the revolutionists have taken the management of national affairs into their own hands. In Peru the insurgents accuse General Echenique of inex cusable procrastination in the settlement of the dif ficulties with Bolivia, and declare their determina tion to compel him to abdicate. They are believed to be in possession of about half a million of dol lars, which will most likely enable them to carry their intentions into operation. Albany, Feb. 4, M.

This race promised some sport and came up to the expectation entertained; but the knowing onesVerc rather lo leeward in their calculations. Shadow was the favorite before starting, being blazoned as a "Boston," while the other two competitors, though very pretty "bits of blood," being home raised, were not (as is too often the case) thought very much of. At tire word go, they sprang off well together. The Equinox colt taking the lead, Shadow pressed him close, down the back stretch, Mary Brown pitched into the field and took the first place at the gate, Shadow being second, and the Equinox gracefullly bringing up the rear. In this order they came un der the string. On the back stretch the Equinox made a. sudden demonstration, and by a vigorous effort placed him self in the front, and in this style came by the, stand with Mary Brown close upon hi3 haunches, both under tho inspiring influences of the catgut. second heat. In the first mile of this heat Mary Brown led with the Equinox about two lengths in her rear, and Shadow at a considerable distance behind. After passing the string and entering the back stretch, the Equinox closed, then passed her, and his friends thought the race was his. But as they swung into the back stretch, a strupglo as for life and death commenced, and there was no telling the result At length, as they passed the string, the mare was1 a neck ahead the Boston filly hav ing so increased her Shadow as to be lost in the dis tance. toird heat.

At the hour of starting, the four came up to the string, all inconditipn, and evident ly prepared to bring out all that was in them .Ma donna had the track, Florence second, John Hop kins third, and the Maid of Edgecomb on the out side. At the word go, Florence dashed off in the lead, closely followed by the Maid; the other two several lengths in the rear. They went down the back stretch in a string, but as they neared the first gate they alt crowded toijethcrlike a (lock of fneht ened patridges. Hopkins then made a dash at Flor ence, who soon shook him oil, and led through un der the string. On the back stretch in the second mile, Florence still led the party, 'who were follow ing with a few lengths intervening between each.

The general hope now was that Hopkins would take this heat, and thus add to tho- interest of the race by prolonging the contest After the usual time for cooling off, the four again came up fresh as larK?, and at the word "go, dashed forward, Flor ence leading. As they rounded the turn into the back stretch, Hopkins increased his speed, and a beautiful brush for two hundred yards, succeeded with Florence, but he could not succeed in heading her. They passed under the string in this style, and on the back stretch Hopkins again exerted him self to obtain the first place, but "he could'nt come it," and the little mare came through, beating him about a length. recapitulation.

Mr. Farquharson moved that the Senate insist on their amendment, and went on to make an argu ment a favor of his motion, at the close of wliich the question was put, on the motion of Mr. Farqu harson, and the Senate refused to assent; the ques tion was then put, on the motion of Mr. Carriger, to recede, wliich was agreed to ayes, 18; noe3 7. So the Omnibus bill is a law. Then, on motion of Mr. Dunlap, of Shelby, tho Senate took up the morning business again, and the chairman or the Judicfary committee reported on the bill to change the name of.

On motion, the Senate adjourned until half past-l 2 o'clock P. M. HOUSE jiortsixo session. "Wednesday, Feb. 8. The House met pursuant to adjournment, and the journal of yesterday was read. Mr. Chambliss moved a call of the House, which was refused. During the reading of the Journal, Messrs Bailey, nubbard and Hall asked leave to record their votes in favor of postponing the Law Reform bill; and Mr. Cunimings to record his vote against the post ponement Of the same bill. Mr. Chamberlain asked for the reading of the proceedings had yesterday afternoon on the call of the House, and the absentees were read, which gave rise to some sparring among several gentle men whose names were recorded as absent; and af ter some excitement, tho House proceeded to the morning business. Mr. Farrington, and Mr. Richardson presented reports from their respective committees, which were properly disposed of. Mr. Wheeler introduced a bill to grant titles to land, and to legalize certain deeds. Passed first reading, and referred. Mr. Harrington introduced a bill to incorporate the "Congregation of the Children of Israel" at Memphis, and then withdrew it on leave. Mr. Smith of Davidson, introduced a bill to au thorize Commissioners to settle with G. A. Sublett Passed first reading. The House then proceeded to tho unfinished bu siness of yesterday, being the bill to establish a Criminal court at Chattanooga, the question being toieconsider the vote rejecting Mr. Co wart's amend ment, and the motion to reconsider was with drawn; and the bill wa3 rejected. Ayes 31; Noes 41. Mr. Cooke entered a motion to reconsider, which motion wa3 taken up; and Mr. Cooke urged a re consideration, both in view of the utility of the measure, and also for the purpose of increasing the salary of the Judge the pitiful sum of 500 could not secure a competent Judge and he believed many gentlemen voted against the bill on that very ground. Mr. Hebb replied he could not see the necessity for this court: the object seemed to be to create offices for the special benefit of certain individuals. Mr. Brown of Monroe, thought the gentleman from Lincoln, had a morbid fancy for looking at the worst side of every measure in which money was involved: and in every such case, he (Mr. Hebb) seemed disposed to impute selfish and improper mo tives to the advocates of the measures. He would advise the gentleman to cultivate a more charitable sp rit. Mr. Brown continued to argue the neces sity of the Court asked for, at some length. Air. Cowart thought that this bill had been fairly and fully discussed on its second reading, but the gentlemen seemed to have forgotten all about it The gentleman from Lincoln seemed to have an antipathy to every thing that had a dollar in it He would tell that gentleman; that if he persisted in that course, he would keep his county of Lin coln now fifty years behind the times- still further in the back ground. After some further remarks from Mr. Cowart, Mr. Maxwell called the previous question, which was sustained, and the main ques tion being put, the vote was reconsidered, and then, the question being on the passage of the bill, Mr. Chamberlain Rave his reason for voting again.t the bill, viz: the smallness of the Judge's salary. No gentleman of competent legal acquirements would accept that smallsum, lor duties so important, and mvolvinc: questions ot hie and liberty. Air. U. argued strongly in favor of the court, and he would rather have the court with that salary, than not at all. Mr. Chambliss called the previous question, which was sustained, and the mam question being put, the bill was rejected. Ayes J2; iNoes Jb. Mr. Hubbard asked leave to chance his vote. Granted. Tho House then took up the bill regulating the tax on Merchant's License the question pending being the amendment offered by the Committee on nays and Aleans, in lieu of the original bilL Mr. Sykes explained the effect of the amend ment, and Mr. Buford hoped the recommendation ol the Committee would be adopted; it would be unwise, at this time, to adopt any meaurc which would re duce the amount of revenue. He thought that the real question here was, not whether wo should change taxes so as to favor any particular class, but whether the effect of this bill would be to increaso or diminish the revenue. Mr. Lamb replied to the remarks of Messrs. Sykes and Buford. He was opposed to the recom mendation of the committee. He statod that the merchants of the State paid into the treasury $75, 000, whilst property holders paid $400,000, whilst the capital of the former was not more than ten, and that of the latter was st wo hundred millions. The disproportion was enormous and unjust. Mr. Sykes replied that the disproportion spoken of was not onerous on tho merchants, because the tax was iu fact on purchasers amifoonsumers, as had been conclusively shown bv the centleman from Giles. He also alluded to the condition of the rev- f"1 enue there might be a surplus in the treasury at the next General Assembly, but debts were falling due wliich would have to be met, and which would absorb all the surplus. Mr. Steele called the previous question, which was sustained, and the main question being put, the bill was rejected; ayes 3G, noes 37. Mr. Patton moved a reconsideration, which, on motion of Mr. Steele was taken up and agreed to. Ayes, 3S; noes, 35. And the bill being again before the House, the qucition pending was the amendment offered by the Committee of Ways and Means: and a discus sion again sprang up, in which Messrs. Lamb, Tem ple, Cheatham, and others participated. Mr. Temple opposed the bill; it was on!y""partial legislation in favor of the merchants but not a woid in favor of the farmers, whose taxes no one thought of reducing. Mr. Cheatham replied with caustic irony to Mr. Temple's remarks. He thought that the last speech must have been made by some gentleman from Buncombe; and Mr. C. then proceeded to discuss the merits of the bill, and showed its operation on the mercantile community. Mr. Temple rejoined, and said it wa3 easier to ridicule than to refute. His positions had not Ijeen attacked, and he still maintained them. He felt that he was in the faithful discharge of his public duty, and in that course he feared no ridicule. Mr. Temple continued with much earnestness to discuss the principles involved in the question. Mr. Sykes explained the action of the Commit tee of Ways and Means on this subject, and the ef fects which would result from their amendment if adopted. As to what had been stated by Mr. Lamb in regard to the surplus in the Treasury, and that no State bonds would fall due before 1801 if that were so, that was the very reason why we should begin now to make provision to meet those bonds. Mr. Bullen moved to amend by making the tax twenty five, instead of twenty cents; wliich was laid on the table. Mr. Hebb called the previous which was sus- taineu, and the ain question being on the passage of. the original bill, it was again rejected. . Ayes, So; noes, 31". a- And the House adjourned until 2 o'clock P. M. SENATE AlTERKOOJiflrStSSIOIf. j Wedsesdat, Feb. 8. The Seriate resumed the' consideration of Hou3e bill to.amcnd the county subscriptions to railroads bill f and the amendment offered this morning by Mr. Perkins ,was,adopted. Mr. Farquharson offered an .amendment in lieu of the bill 'after the enacting clause, repealing the act which tho Houso bill proposed to amend. Mr. Farquharson spoke at some length in opposi tion to the policy of county1 subscriptions to rail roads, predicting that, when the day of payment comes, the State will bo called on lo foot the bill, and that, as the county-bonds depreciate, the State will be ca'led upon to endorse them. Mr. Nelson replied, and ridiculed th alarm of the Senator from Lincoln. Mr. Nixon moved to amend the amendment, by providing that it shall not go into effect until the 4th of July next; which wa3 adopted The question recurring on the amendment by fMr. Farquharson, it being suggested that some of the Senators interested in the bill were absent, it was informally passed over. This bill authorizes the counties to issue their londs in payment of subscriptions to railreads; tho law at present authorizes them only to subscribe. A large number of House bills passed on the first and second readings, which will be noticed moro particularly on the third reading. Senate bill to authorize the purchase of ground adjacent to the Capitol, wa3 read the second time. On motion of Mr. Farquharseu, the bill was a meuded by providing that said ground shall not cost more than $7500. The bill was then rejected. And the Senate, adjourned until 10 o'clock, to morrow. House Evktiko Session. Wedsesdat, Feb. 8. The chairman called the House to order at 2 o' clock. Mr. Chamberlain moved a call of the House, and demanded the ayes and noes, and the motion failed. ' The House resumed, the calendar, when the fol lowing bills were disposed of on the third and la3t reading: The bill to amend the insolvent laws. Mr. Bullen moved its indefinite postponoment, but withdrew his motion by request, and the bill was rejected. Mr. demons moved to reconsider, and the mo tion was taken up. Mr. Winchester explained the objects of the bilL Mr.JBuford said that the gentleman had satisfied him that the bill ought to be rejected. And the mo tion to reconsider failed. The bill to change the line of Campbell, Ander son and Scott counties, passed. The bill appointing J. Shultz to settle with W. Smith and Alex. Campbell, Road Commissioners, &c. Mr. Ellis moved to amend by inserting "Circuit Court Clerk of Claiborne," in lieu of J. Shultz, which was adopted, and the bill passed as amended. The bill to authorize the extension of Wills' Valley Railroad to Chattanooga, or elsewhere in this State. Mr. Cooke moved to refer it to the Internal Im provement committee; which was refused. Mr. Cowart explained the bill did not ask any State aid. Mr. Lillard offered an amendment, and, Mr. Tibbs opposed the amendment, and spoke in defence of the bill. Mr. Cook replied, and urged the House not to act in haste; without having the hill duly examined, and for that reason ho wished it referred to the committee. Mr. Tibb3 opposed the reference, and was earnest in his support of tho bill. The discussion was con tinued by Mr. Lillard, who made a long speech against the bill; to which Mr. Tibbs replied at equal length and was followed by Mr Cowart, who cal led the previous question, and tho call was sustain- ed, and the main question being put, the bill pas sed third reading. Mr. Lillard moved to reconsider, which motion was taken up, and Mr. L. again opened the debate; which was participated in by Mr. Brown of Mon roe, and Mr. Tibbs; and after a discussion nearly a3 long as the proposed road, Mr. Morris of Cocke, called the previous question, and the call wa3 sus tained, and the main question being on the motion to reconsider, the House refused to reconsider.
