Mr. Smith resumed the remarks commenced
by him on yesterday. He quoted, as the plat
torna on which he stood upon this question, the
words of Mr. Webster, in which that gentle
man declared himself opposed to all agitation,
Worth or South. He was opposed to all Anti
Slavery agitators, and Pro-Slavery agitator?
No man could say that in opposing this bill he
was actuated by seotional motives. He had

He and some few other Northern Senators
voted with the South, and killed the Nebraska
bill of the last session. He was surprised to

oause for the change, except that this bill oon
tained a Slavery clause. If it were not sweet

live in the Senate half an hour. This bill re
enaoted the Fugitive Slave Aot; but if it re

When the bill was first reported, it oontained
a twenty first section, of which no one knew the
meaning, and whioh a jury of nineteen Phila

in that state one week; when Mr. Dixon offer

All the South deeired was the repeal of the
Missouri Act. If it was to be repealed, he
would prefer to have it done in positive terms,
and in none of the squirming and twisting
displayed by this bill. If it was to be repealed
it ought to be done in a separate motion, and

The country had expected nothing of this
measure. It will be remembered-, the newspa

Congress met Sinoe that time, however, the
notes of the present or^an had been most dis
cordant. In the first place, the Senator from

lauded for his middle course. In a few days

A private letter from Florence, of the 6 th of
January, Bays: " Our Government it) rendering
itself perfectly ridiculous by its persecution of
all those who speak in favor of Turkey. Two
boys were arrested some days since, for having
given an Oriental salute, by crossing their arms
on their breasts and bending their heads. The

board of the Turkish Coffee-house, and the
word 'coffee-house' remains. Crowds asBcm*

A letter from Milan, of the 9th of January,
states that " the polioe authorities in that city
are beooming every day more arbitrary. The
inhabitants are forbidden to quit their houses
or walk the stroets, without a pass from the
Prefeotof Polioe; otherwise, they are imprison
ed and fed on bread and water. There is a
special carriage attached to every railway
train, which is exclusively reserved for the po

Advices have reached Paris, from St Peters
burgh, of the 12th of January, whioh describe
the position of affairs as affording little hope
for the maintenance of peace. The ?mperor
is described by thorn who have an opportunity
of observing his movoments, as living in a state
of religiouH exaltation, regarding himself as the
chosen instrument, under the hand of God, to
drive the Moslem fr<jm Europe, and only re
gretting that he should have allowed so many
years to pass by without fulfilling his destiny.
The allegod unconstitutional interference on
the part of 1'rinoe Albert has been further dis
cussed in London. His Tight by marriage to
bo at the Privy Council is established by a
unanimous opinion delivered by the judges in
1765, and it is shown that the acta lor natu
ralising Prince Albert wero oopied word for
word from those for naturalising Prince Leo
Kld when he married the late Prinoess Char
;te, in virtue of which ho was made a Privy
Councillor on the 1st of July, 1816, with the
sanction of I*ord Eldon, then L6rd Chanoellor.
The preoedente of Prince Leopold, (though the
Princess Charlotte was only presumptive heir
ess ) and of Prince George of Denmark, were
followed in the case of Prinoe Albert, both of
whom were introduced, and took no oaths.
Of the strictness of the passport system, and
the danger from now-oomers which haunts the
Neapolitan (ffioial mind, a good story has just
been told. A lady, expecting hoTconflnem -nf,
was at Capri with her husband. Wishing that
the ohild might be born on the main land, they
sailed across the bay; but the youthful Nea- i
politan having unexpectedly made his appear -
anoe during the three hours' voyage, they were j
not allowed to laud, because the infant was
not in the passport!
Some month* tince, upwards of twenty thou
sand natives of the Punjaub assembled at Um
ritsir, to hear the Governor General's order on
the subject of infantioide. Hitherto the hill
ohiefr, and many of the Sikh tribe?, have adopt
ed the ornel practice of murdering their female
children, rather than boar tho great expeose of
their marriage oercmonies. Government has
now limited thoso expenses to certain sums
proportioned to the rank of the parents In
the evening the whole oity was splendidly il
luminated, and fireworks broke out on every
side. It appears to have been a remarkable
display of Oriental magnificenoe.
Some one has discovered that leeches, when
drank, will bite until sober; and, therefore,
when they show a disinclination to bite, he
makes them drunk ; he puts them into a little
warm beer, and directly they begin to kick
about, he takes thorn out, holds them in a oloth,
applies them, and find* that they will bite im
mediately and vigorously. This is ono of the
vert few cases wo (Household Words) have met
with, of a personage being more useful when
drunk than when sober. Tho surgeons at the
Hotel Dieu, at Paris, are said to bo a little
more delioate in their practice; they intoxioatc
their sluggish leoches with a little warm wine
and water, instead of boer.
