AVe'coJiy blow extracts, from two influential
louthern" whijfpfeas'es, from which the tende'ncy.of
. . s-fr r :. ' , . . . J ,r
Ihewhig'presS or the south may be judged of. The
first fs'from" the Rilffmord American, and fs emphatic
in in condemnation of She Nebraska bill. The
second ia from tho Raleigh (N. C.) Reglsler and
though less decided. It, too, breathes a spirit of op
po?ition to the bill. '
The" llMimore.A merica n says :
"A 'calm "endued, (after 1S50,) but tho ambitious
polilieik'nsvilled-uiat the calm should be of brier
duration. iThey-ihave! now ro-bpened the slavery
question and set, the -ball of -.agitation in motion on
ihe Nbroka territorial hilL Why was it necessa
ry to so frame that bill as to cause a clause to be put
in ii us repeal, or to ueciare superseded and made
nulliand void, the Missouri Compromise of 1S20,
which ..fomjiromise forhade tho introduction of
slaveryjnto any tcritory, acquired with thepurchase
of Louisiana, north of 3G deg. 30 .minutes of north
latitude?' Nebraska lies north of that line. It is
said that the compromise of 1320, making this res
triction, in unconstitutional. If it isnot unconti-'
tutional, it Js at least rcpenlable. Jf it is not tin
coujtitutipualj it cannot prevent the people of Ne-bni-k
i fiom holding projerty in' slavis, if ther
chooie to tako slavery there with Iheni. If it is
ii'IalsbV, and thfr-people of-Nebraska shall decide
to ak for n.lmijsion inlo the Union, as a slave State,
it will be tune enough for Congress to agitate and
;ict on llin i-ubject, when'lfie necessity for such
uyitatiou and action fari?es. Why could not, aud
. why should not, tlie Nebraska bill be framed as were
the territorial bills for' New Mexico and Utah?
Thoae bills contained no clause relative to the Mis
souri Cotupivmise, or to the question whether
slavery mightpr might not go there. That vexed
question was wisely deferred to the futuru decision
of tfic'people or those territories. "Why could not
the sairie -Vexed question be deferred to the future
decision, of the people of Nebraska? Because the
ambitious political aspirants Of the Democratic party
would not tufler it lo be t-o deferred. They waut
more agifalioD; they court it, and they mean to
have it, that they may
"ltiilo iLe whirlwind and direct the storm."
Tho Raleigh lleyislcr says:
"With these views of die matter, we confess that
wo somewhat doubt thu.utility of disturbing the
Missouri Compromise, which was acquiesced iu by
the South' as the condition or the admission of Mii
souii Into tho Union though wo' hardly know
what modification our views may yet undergo.
iiio jNorui may say, imt, uy attempting to repeal
the slaver' restrictive clause, the South has violated
a solemn compact, and it will be difficult to repel
the charge. They will claim, as a matter of course,
to beTeleased frorii that and the more recent com
promise, and. will attempt to introduce the Wilmot
Proviso into the territorial Governments now ex
isting, or which may be in future organised, South
of 30 deg. 30 minutes.
"This bill, at all event', will be tlie rallying cry
for another anti-slavery agitation which will throw
all that have preceded it in the shade."
When shall we bo able to quote the opinions of
the Nashville liauner and True Whig?

t ... Fkidat, JFeb. 10?
The subject beftrellhe -"House being Mr. Bailey's
resolution, ;nndi ajnaotiOtt'pendiiig:.to--indefiniteIy'
pojtpono it,,,, u . v
Jlr. Sykes. leing entitled to the floor, resumed
.his argument "against the views" embodied 'in the
preamble nnd 'resolution -now'befbTniie tlouse.
The point on which' he (Mr. S.).mainly relied, was"
this: that if -Mr. Bailey's construction of the law was
correct, it would result in manifest injasticcto the
East Tennessee and Georgia Railroad, for it would
grant eight thousand dollars per mile to the Mem
phis and Charleston roadr and to other-roads, and
deny the same to the East Tennessee and Georgia
roai If the geutk-mans interpretation of the 10th
section was correct', it would nullify the Jfuh sec
tion; if it did not do this, the gentleman's interpretation-was
incorrect. Mr. Sykes proceeded tb en
force and elucidate the position he liad assumed. :
It matters not that this road had received aid f'om
the State j-cars ago that bad nothing to. do with
this question. The plain intention of the Legisla
ture in 1S52 was to put this road on an equal looting
with.tho other roads embraced in tho act, and that
intention w 11 not be carried out under Mr. Bailey's
interpretation of the law. The 10th section was
inserted expicssly 'with the view of giving Uie
State aid to that' portion of the road south of Ten
nesse.river. .He thought this ought to be c6nclu
iiveof the case, and he believed this was tlie true
construction, and he believed the,Goveriior.had not
erred. Mr. S. closed' by deprecating the introduc
tion of any party or sectarian bia into discussion
of tliis question, but let it be decided on broad and
Mr.'Bailcy arose in reply to Mr. Sykes. The
gentleman had objected to the phraseology of some
parts of the resolution. He had no objection to
striking out all that was objected to, and let the
resolution merely provide for a suit to be. instituted
in order to bring the matter to a judicial, test. Mr.
B. then combatted the objection that the passage
of the resolution would lend to break down tlie
system of Internal Improvement. On the contra
ry, he thought it would have the opposite effect,
fur it would show a fixed deteimination. to protect
and uphold the law, and secure its correct applica
tion. Jir. u. ainuied also to the remarks made by
some other gentlemen who addressed the House
this morning. He was glad those gentlemen seemed
to be satisfied; and yet more without boasting
that they were, as he believed, unanswerable. He
denied that it was the intention of the last Legisla
ture to put all the roads in the" State on an equal
footing, for many roads were not embraced in the
act at all. .No argument could bo drawn from this,
and it was not the proper way to approach the
question. The language of the act must be inter
preted in its proper connections, and not otherwise;
and Mr. B. proceeded to discuss the force and bear
ing of the 10th and 11th sections of tho act, re
affirming his positions as laid down this morning,
and combatting the interpretation of Mr. Sykes.
Where then, he would ask, was the error Jie had
committed in his interpretation? He called on. tlie
gentlemen to divest themselves of all "feeling, and
construe (he statute according to its lanmiarre.
-Mr. urown, ot .Monroe, loiiowed : alter having
.heard the arguments on both sides, he wished to,
make a few remarks. , lie thought the policy of
"resolutions 'such as' that now under discussion, and
their tendercy Injurious to the credit of the State.
it looked somewhat like repudiation, which was al
ways sought, to be polored by .a pretext that .tho
debt had been illegally contracted in the beginning.
TKe verir same plea is. put "forth here; he thougbt
die whole policy was bad, and that no good could
come of it-JIe'also thought the measure- unneces
sary at any rate;,, this State could not, lose any
thing by the issuance of theso bonds; for the-State
owned one hall ol tnestock-,(aua,tne company at-
wavs had paid, and would continue to pay porapt-
ly the interest on the bonds,' and 'tho measure in
