"We copy to-day an extract from the correspond ence cf the Baltimore Repullican'ior tha compli ment it pays our excellent Representative, S. A. Smith. We havo on file an admirable speech by Mr. Smith, which wo shall print press of leghlativeiinatter is over. as soon tho WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? . Nathaxisl P. Bahks, Jr., a member from the State of Maisachinetts, was.elssted Speaker of the National IIou3e of Representatives, on Siturday, the 2d instant. One hundred and thirty three ballots were taken to achieve the result. The struggle has been unprecedented in our annals. The new Speaker 13 said to be n mau of talents and of distinguished Parliamentary ability. Never " theless we regard his election a3 a great calamity, J6incehe is -the chief and representativo of a party, advocating doctrine dangerous to public liberty. Mr. Bakes was formerly a member of the National Democratic Party. When the knownothing par ty was first organised he left tho democracy, took" the prescribed oath?, and wa3 regularly installed into one of their councils. During the last Congress he wa3 their champion on the floor of the House of Representatives and made an able speech in defence of his party. When the party split he went with the northern or 'black' wing, and is not now recoj nised by those who call themselves "national know-nothings." , The democratic members were vehemently op posed to the election of 3Ir. Bank?. They placed in tho field against him, first Mr. Richardson, then Mr. Oek, then Mr. Aikku. These gentlemen are all National men. The election of either would have been a fatal blow at "Black Republicanism." The democrats were not able to -elect because they were in the minority. A faction of thirty odd members, sometimes called "National know-nothings" and again designated a3 "South Americans' 'held the balance cf power. These gentlemen pro fessed to be extremely hostile to Mr. Banks on ac count of his well known sectional views. Their first nominee was Humphrey Marshall, of Ken tucky, who after a brief straggle yielded to Mr, Fuller, of Pennsylvania. This gentleman has been represented as a National man in the broadest sense of the word. We do not so regard hint Mr, Fuller was elected over II. B. Wriout, a demo cratic member of the list Congress, who voted for the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and was defeated on that issue. Mr. Fuller states that he would have voted against that bill, but that he is now opposed to any attempt in the House to restore the Mis Bouti restriction. Why ? Because the Senate and the President are both hostile to such a measure. He leaves us to infer that he would vote with the Black Republicans if they had the Senate and the President Mr. Fuller did not even vote for Hum phret Mariiall, but for Mr. Pexnixgiton, a Black Republican from New Jersey, who had all the time supported Mr. Banks. Tho "South Americans," -from the first, had no idea of electing their man, They knew, and the country knew, the contest was between Banks and the democratic candidate. In the debates they admitted that Mr. Richardson and Mr. Orb were truly National men and emi nently fitted for the position. Why then did they eo obstinately for sixty days refuse to vote for eithei? We will state their reason. On the 1st day of December, the democrats met in caucus and adopted the following resolution: "The following resolution, introduced by Hon. J. Glancy Jones, of Pennsylvania, was unanimously adopted : " Resolved, That the democratic members of the House of Kepresentaties, though m a temporary minority in this body, deem this a fit occasion to tender to their fellow-citizens of the whole Union their heartfelt congratulations on the triumph, in the recent election in several of the northern, eas tern, western and southern States, of the princi ples of the Kansa-Nebraska bill and the doctrines of civil and religious liberty which have been so violently assailed by a s;cret political order knoirn as the know-nothing party; and though in a minor ity, we hold it to be our highest duty to preserve our organization and continue our efforts in the maintenance and defence of those principles and the constitutional rights of every section and every class of citizens against their opponents of every description, whether the so-called republicans, know nothings, or fuBionist?; and to this end, we look with confidence to the support and approba tion cf all good and true men friends of the con stitution and the Union throughout the country." ''The Southern Americans" refused to vote for Mr. Richardson, because, asthey said, this resolu tion was intended to repulse them. The excuse is a flimsy one. Mr. Glanov Jones, the author of ths resolution, and other equally distinguished gen tlemen, time and again on the floor of the House, distinctly stated that such was not the object and intention of the resolution. Well, at length Mr. Richardson was withdrawn and Mr. Ore, of South Carolina, nominated in his place. Mr. Orr is an old member of acknowledged ability as a presiding officer. Personally there could bo no objection to him. Indeed, while Mr. Richardson was tho democratic candidate, Mr. Sheed, a know-nothing member from this State, offered a resolution declaring Mr. Orr speaker, or calling him to the chair temporarily, wo do not re member which. We mention the fact to show his standing with tha know-nothings. We presume no man doubts Mr. Orr's soundness on the elavery question. Well, the know-nothings refusedto vote for Mr. Orr because, when he was nominated, the following resolution was adopted: " Resolved, That, adhering to tho principles an nounced by the democratic caucus that nominated Mr. Richardson for Speaker, and in view of his withdrawal as a candidate, wo hereby nominate for the office of Speaker of tho present House of Representative the Hon. James L. Orr, of South Carolina. " They said Mr. Or.R stood on the platform of the 1st December, and therefore, they would not vote for him. Again and again their leading men stated that their party would vote for any nation al democrat who was not nominated on tho cau cus resolution. Were they sincere? At length Mr. OnR withdrew. Tho democratic party declin ed to meet in caucus. They made no nomination, but cast their votes for Gov. Aiken, of South Carolina. He i3 a national man ; his abilities are unquestioned; he did not appear as the caucus candidate; Lo was not present when the resolu tion of the 1st of December was passed. Tho plurality had been adopted. The contest w3 now natrowed down to Aiken and Banks. One or tho other must be elected. Banks received 103 votes f'and Aiken 100 votes. Four more votes would have elected Mr. Aiken. Six of tho bo called na tional know-nothings threw away their voles on Fuller. What did that gentleman himself do? Ho has becn'represented by all the know-nothing papers as an intensely national man. Here was an opportunity for him to show his hand. His vote and influence would have elected Aiken. Ue refused to vote at all. There could be no indelicacy in his voting, for on the 24th of January he had positively and distinctly withdrawn his name and was no longer a candidate. Mr. Richardson and Col. Orr occupied precisely tho same position with him and they both voted for Gov. Aiken. Heaven deliver us from all such national men as Henry M. Duller! If he had voted for Aiken the six know- nothings who voted for him (Fuller) would have gone with him and thu3 elected Aiken. We think we have clearly shown who is respon- sible 6r tho, cVction of FelloVwt:: the Prelidenliat cintos upon vUiichrvo aro jnsten teriawill he in-mjR.rjjp?Jts 5ik3jthe.contc3t for the Spsakenhi?.

Hereafter wa will show" by afgiiment and evidence which cannot be met and denied; that the hones of the country rest oa'.tho triumph of the democrats party in the-next contest. Enough for to-day. , : TUB KNOW-NOTHING. PLATFORM; . ." The following is tho platform adopted by tho know-noth'mg State-Convention held in this city last Tuesday: , 1. Resolved, That we re-affirm and proclaim the platform adopted by the Philadelphia Convention in June last, believing the . principles therein set forth, neceisiry and proper for the best good of the whole country. 2. Resolved, -That a3 regards the question of slavery, experience has shown that it is a subject upon which the American people have always dif fered. As ardent lovera of the Union, and of the peace and harmony of the country, we deprecate all agitation of the subject, us the woist foe to the perpetuity of the Republic. Always entertaining the most profound respect and regard for the com promises of the Constitution, and laws of the land, and feeling that all ot our rights of liberty, religion and property are amply protected" by them m all parts ot our common country, as patriots, we will accord to them, as we have ever done, a patriot's obedience, asking nothing but what is right, and admitting to nothing that is wrong, 3. Resolved, That we will abide by and main tain the provisions of tbo Constitution of the Uni ted States, and (ho existing laws of Congress upon tho subject as a final settlement thereof; and there fore, wewill oppose any and all further agitation upon this question. In making this declaration, we deny that Congresa pose"s3es any power to leg islate upon the subject of slavery in any way, and wo equally deny to the people of the territories any such power until the formation of a State gov ernment, opposing the odiou3 doctrine of squatter sovereignty, or in other words, the applicition by the people of the territories of WilmotProvisoism. 4. Resolved, That our delegates to the National Convention, to be held in Philadelphia on the 22d oi ueornary, mst., be instructea to use their intlu ence and procure tho repeal of all ceremonial ofinl tiation into thaAmericen party, and allobligations of secrecy or otherwise. 5. Resolved, That the education of the youth of our counuy 13 the best means of perpetuating its liberties, that the States should provide for that education by establishing common echools through out their limits, and that the Protestant Bible, as tneir text boot, should never be excluded from them. C. Resolved, That this Convention, feeling justly indignant at the gross misrepresentations of their principles ana motives by their opponents, and tho organs and leaders of the exposition, recommend to their friends everywhere, in all future contest to maintain their positions with dignity and firmness, but to tolerate no longer in silence, any unjust war upon their rights as American freemen. 7. Resolved, That the present administration of the Federal Government, by the appointment of uitrasectional men to leading Cabinet and Judicial omces ty its open interference with elections, and by its rrholeaale proscription of larce masses of theAmerican people forno other teason than their support of the time-honored doctrines of their fathers, has violated every principle which brought : . 1 t. 1 1 tii? , j ujuiupuwer. imab uceu vofciuiaung ana insin cere, and has forfeited all claim to public confidence, and deserves the condemmnation of all conscien tious men. The first resolution endorses re-affirms and pro claims the Philadelphia platform, which platform expressly " pretermitted" any expression of opin ion on the power of Congress to establish or abol ish slavery in tho Territories. Slid: a pin there. The second resolution embodies the idea of the article of the Washington Union, which has been the subject of so much censure by the know-nolh- ings of this State. It mako tho farther admission that all our rights of liberty and religion are amply protected by law. In the name of common sense, then, what does the southern know-nothing party wish to do ? If the existing laws aro sufficient, no new legislation can be proposed; and here we have a party, admitting the adequacy of the pres ent laws for the protection of liberty, religion and property, making no complaint that tfceso laws aro not fully executed, and yet keeping up a secret organization and raising a fury of excitement to accomplish nothing I The third resolution is an admirable hnow -noth ing commentary on the first The first, by re affirming and proclaiming the Philadelphia plat form, pretermits any expression of opinion on tho power of Congress either to establish or abolish slavery in the Territories. The third denies the power of Congress to legislate on the subject of slavery in any way. They resolve not to express any opinion, and then proceed to express one. And what is this opinion ? It looks sound on the face. But if " Congrkas possesses no power to legislate on tho subject of slavery in any uay, what, Measrs. know-nothings, will you do with the fugitive tlave law ? Giodixos and his crew deny the power of Congress to legislate on the subject of slavery in the States, and therefore ES3ert that the fugitive slave law is unconstitutional. And the question is, was the expression in this resolu tion a blunder, or an attempt to harmonize with Giddings ? Tbo fourth resolution asks the Philadelphia Con vention to absolve the members from oaths which they aro tired of. An admission that these mem bers are now bound by oaths which they cannot rid themselves of but by the action of a National Council. What worse d&ej the greatest bigot charge on a Catholic than that be is bound by oath to carry out the dictation of the Pope? and what worse impiety is charged against the Pope than that he claims-power to absolve men from oaths " registered in Heaven ?" But it was a bad busi nesE, the taking of theso oaths; and if the Phila delphia Pope has the power to grant absolution, by all means let the know-nothings pray for it. The fifth resolution pronounces a favorablo opin ion of the Bible ! The Bible will unquestiorably be able to sustain this endorsement. Tho sixth resolution notifies democrats to he careful or they will get thrashed. It can mean nothing e!s8. The threat has now been 1! -co times repeated. We presume it will excite surprise in some quarters to see sensible gentlemen passing such a resolution. We cannot suppose that it will excite, any where, any other or more serious feel ing. The last resolution is devoted to tho administra tion. A larger amount of rank injustice cannot bo crowded into the same space. It i3 a shame, when this administration is contending, for the protec tion of tho South, against a fanaticism which has grown strong enough to seriously endanger our rights, for a southern meeting, instead of strength ening the hands of this administration, to assail it with a malice so vindictive nnd a hostility so blind and wanton. If the spontaneous feeling of the honest masses of the south does not rebuke and silence such assaults, then it is worse than useless for any statesman to risk any thing for their pro- tection. JCS?"

EE TheNevTor!irreone.6n theidult., publish j jii a letter from GuY Ti. Pelton, of? tha ;third Dla- trict of New Yoik, to his CoastitueBta, not orignsl ly blended for tho public eye, but' published at the solicitation of frienVs. Mr. Pelton defends his vote for Bankj, not so much on the ground that Banks Is a Republican "as that ho is a sworn 1 ber of tho Order of Know Nothings, of ' mem-. which "Pelton himself 13 a professing and persecuting leader. - We quote a passage from Mr.' PiLTON's letter .definTngMr.Bics position: '. It was finally discovered that men of ell parties who were opposed to the breaking up of the Mis souri Compromise line and oppossd .to the Adrairi istr3tion, must unite upon someone who would re present the anti-Ncsbraska and American centi mentof the House. I in turn voted for Fuller, Campbell, of Ohio, and Pennington. After I had learned thatFuller wholly abandoned the anti-Ne-hraska platform upon wbioh ho ireu elected, and held the identical position of Richardson & Co., in regard to tho issue before us, I felt that I had un wittingly voted for ono who could not be endorsed by any Northern man, and then voted for Penning ton until it became evidentjthat tbo only man whomj we could elcctl was N. P. Banks. Every Northern man, with some six or eight humiliating exccptionSjthonghtand did as I did; and wehaTenot yet any gcod reason presented to us for acting differ ently. Mj Banks, if hi3 position and principles were well known, certainly cannot be objectionable to any American north of tho slavery limits. He ia a firm anti-Nebraska man, and 'as firm an American and more eminently fitted to discharge the duties of Speaker, than any officer on the floor of tho House. If, through newspaper misrepresentations or otherwise, any friend of mine has conceived for one moment tfiat he is an Abolitionist or ultra anti Slavery in his views, let ma assure him that no man ever mora misjudged. He is conservative in 1 his views, and should he 1$ elected, his administra tion as Speaker will be conducted ina.manner that will jastity cur vole3acd satisfy all parties (exept thoso who regard the extension of slavery 3 the sole object of Federal legislation) that a better Speaker for the emergency could not have been named. The Councils should not forget that it was Banks who so gallantly led tha American force in tha last Congress, and that dunn? the late can vass in Massichusetts he proclaimed and defended himself as an anti-JMebraska American, lie is now a member of the ''Ordnr," in good standing at home, UM3 much for his Americanism. On the day previous to tha election of Speaker at Washington, that portion of the Fuller vote claiming to bo " national Americans " from the North, wa3 cast for Mr. Aiken of South Caroli nia; thus creating the impression that Mr. Aiken could be elected. On the following day, when tho plurality rule was adopted and an election fixed upon beyond avoidance, every mother's son of theso same so-called " national Americans " from the North, with Fuller at their head, withdrew their support from the national candidate, and thus secured the election of Banks. Wo desire to contri bute this much to the Banners next article upon the "ignoring" question, in further proof of the perfect rottenness of all so-called " national Amer icans North. " 5T" The slavery question was studiously " ig nored ' by each of tho speakers at the recent know-nothiDg grand council in this city, from Sam Turney down to our old friend Ament. We knew that it was a delicate and -dangerous subject with our know-nothing friends one upon which they must agrea to disagree but still we could but re gard it as somewhat remarlxibh that some one of their numerous speakers had not per chance, a least, siumlled upon this, the great and paramount ques tion of all others, not only lo tho South, but the entire Union. We think every one will concur with us in saying that it was at least singular. Wo venture that such a thing has never occurred be fore in the history of parties in this or any other State since slavery first became a political question. Wa might institute inquiry, and make many plausi ble conjecturcs.as to the reasons that actuated these gentlemen. But trusting to the caurtsy of cur neighbors of ths Banner and Gaztlte, we shall await their explanations, rather than venture upon our own suppositions. 2? The grand Stato council of the know- nothing party that assembled in this city on Toes day last was measurably a failure. We tru3t that in making this declaration we do not become amenable to tbo fighting resolution of their plat form, for we assure our friends that we do not in tend to be understood as saying that each individ ual member of this party is a failure no would not for the world be considered as regarding our old friend Ament as a failure by no means. But in point ot delegates, save and except Davidson county ; in point of enthusiasm, earnestness, satis faction and harmony, we do think it was a failure, Many of the speeches, even fur know-nothing speeches, were admitted failures. Of course that "one hour" speech of our old friend Ament is ex cepted from the number, for it is impossible to tell what it would have been, could the audience have tolerated him that long Wo trust, that among the prepared speeches yet to appear as a part of the proceedings of this occasion, to have a literal re port of the "one hour orator, witlitiit any omission of the euihusiasm and deafening applauso that grested him in the middle and at tho close of every sentence. Girretpondeace of tie Jialtimore Jiepvllkan. Washington, Feb. 3, 1850. As we predicted, a Speaker of the House of Rep resentatives was chosen yesterday. The long agony is over, and the public business, which has been neglected for nine long week?, will now be attended to. It is true a man lias been chosen, whose senti ments aro repugnant to n great majority ol the American people ; yet after the long struggle, un der existing circumstances, nothing better conld be done than adopt the plurality rule.. It is better to have Banks, as repulsive as his doctrines are, and organization, than no Speaker and disorganization. While Mr. Banks will make an admirable presiding officer,-his own peculiar political notions and those of his party, will be of no avail, unless approved by a majority, which would bo the case whether he was Speaker or not. The thanks. of tho country are due Hon. S. A. Smith, of Tennessee, for introducing tho plurality rule at tho time it was introduced, and for the firm and decided manner in which ho maintained it, In introducing tho resolution, Mr. Smith stated ho had heretofore oppcaed the plurality rule, but tha time having arrived, judging from the proceedings of the previous day, when he thought a sound na tional Democrat could be elected Speaker under its operation, ha felt it his duty to offer it, and trusted that-when' the moment arrived to make tho selection, those of all parties, professing to be na tional men, would unite and chcose a man who knew-nothine but the Union. And had those, who had previously .stated they would look upon the selection of Mr. Banks as a national calamity, pre ferring any sound national man to him, have cast their votes for Mr. Aiken, the Black Republicans would not now be rejoicing in the triumph of their candidate for Speaker. The course of Mr. Smith, in offering and supporting the plurality rule, must not only meet the approval of the Democracy, but the friends of law and order everywhere. During nino weeks, every means, every expedient to elect a Speaker had been tred, but ia vain. That por tion of tho know nothing party, professing to be national, had manifested a disposition to unite up on Mr. Aiken and had all done this, who said they would, he, to day, would have been Speaker and not Mr. Banks. Hurley's Compound Sarsaparilla is universally admitted the best remedy ever tested. No matter, how invetcrato tho disease, or of what duration, it is certain to exercise a very salutary influence, if not a permanent cure. It is a most powerful tonic and alterative, and willjie found invaluable as a restorative in depraved conditions of the system, though its most extensive and reliable application is to the cure of scrofula, rheumatism, dyspepsia, cutaneous diseases and all affections consequent on an impure condition of the circulating fluid. It .3 largely used throughout the country, and fully me rits all that is claimed for it. (Lou. Courier?) Alr.Scovil agent for this popular remedy. New York. FeK 13.

Mr Smith's bill, to secure to married women the right and use of their ownproperty, coming up Mr Smith said he had lived under the operation of such a law, preventing reckless men from spend ing the wife's property; and it had given general sitisfaction. It was in force in Mississippi, Ken tucky and South Carolina. He had never heard of a preposition to repeal it Mr Cavitt opposed the bill It was an old prin ciple in legislation, that the husband is the head of the family. He, therefore, should have tho con trol and management of the property. It was as much outof the sphere of woman to manage prop erty as it was for her to vote and legislate. Mr Smith replied, that tho proposition was not to makaihe woman ruler over tha man. The very reason, that woman does "not vote and legislate, was an argument that the law should secure her in her property Mr Cox stated that tho gentleman's bill wa3 the law now, so far as real estate is concerned. The previous question cutting off debate and forcing the vote, the bill was rejected yeas 18, nays 43.

Mr Temple replied, by reading an affidavit of Mr Strickland lrom which it appeared, that he was appointed, and served as other nssistants, and had received nothing never having been able to call the attention xif the President of the Board of Commissioners (M. Bass) to the subject. Mr Dunnington suggested, that the action of the last Legislature on this subject was, prima facia. against, uie ciaim. Mr Holmes, chairman of the Capitol committee.

Mr Temple said tho House waB in possession of ail the mlcrmation that could be obtained from that source. Mr Runnels inquired of the Chairman of the committee, whether the Commissioners refused to pay Mr S , on a mere legal technicality, or whether it was because they regarded the claim as noju3t. Mr Holmes. Tho Commissioners considered tho claim oughtnot to bo paid, because Mr S. wa3 not employed by them.

Mr Travis proposed to amend the amendment, by adding, that the emancipated slave shall make his application for tha benefit of this act within one year after the act of emancipation. Mr Gleave3 accepted the amendment, and then withdrew the proposition. Tha bill then passed tne second reading. Here the House took recess till 2 o'clock, p. m. There are somsnersoBS who soeck of the in or tne ra ana southern Know-nothings as it they were two distinct parties. They make a mistake on this point. They aro still "one party recognise each other ta belonging to the same party and act together as one party. This 13 proved by their voting- together for Cul lorn for Clerk. By their uniting in making" war upon the Ad ministration. By their mutual hate of the democratic party. And by their uniting in sending delegates to the Philadelphia Convention in which Southern know-notbings will lovingly taka seat3 upon the same benches with XJampbell, Grow, Banks, and Tom Spooner. Sautiern know-nothings may talk as much as they please of cutting loose from their Northern brqthers but their agreeing to meet with them in the Fhilanelphia Convention, ia conclusive that their tal': is decsptive and hypocritical.

Marshall may talk of reading Banks and Campbell out of tha know-nothing party; but when the Kentucky know-nothings ap pointed delegates to meet in National Convention with thesa Northern abolitionists, they recognized them as brothers, and proclaimed to tha world their willingness to affiliate and act with them. And in thu3 acting with them, let the country bear in mind that they are together trying to put down those tried national democrats who have so long stood by the Sooth and voted for and defend ed her rights.
