THiaTVTHiaD COMUaXSS?-FiaST SKSSiON. Senate, Monday, Feb. 13, 1854. The Secretary read a letter from the Hon. D. R. Atchison, requesting Mr. Bright to pre side fur the day. No objection being made, Mr. Bright took the obair. Mr. Everett presented the memorial of over fourteen hundred citizens of Worcester oounty, Massachusetts, against the passage of the Ne braska and Kansas Territorial bill. He said that among the signers was the present Gov ernor of the State, and the Hon. lohn Davis, l?te Senator of the United States, also the Hon. Levi Linooln. He said that he had no doubt but the memorial truly presented the unani mous opinion of the people of that section of the country. - Mr "Seward presented the remonstrance of ninety legal voters of Niagara oounty New Ycrk against the ropoal of the Missouri Com promise. Also, two similar petition* from oiti Kens of Pennsylvania. Mr. Foot presented a like remonstrant from oitizens of Windham oounty, Vermont. Mr. Clayton, a like remonstrance from citi zens of Delaware. Mr. Sumner, the remonbtrance of two hun dred and thirteen oitisens of Concord, Massa chusetts, and seventy-three citizens of North Taunton, in the same State, to tho same effect. Mr. Chase presented six memorials from citi zens of Ohio and Indiana, and the proceedings of a public meeting at Cleveland, Ohio, all agaiuBt the repeal of the Missouri Compro M*. Biodhoad presented eleven like petitions from citizens of Pennsylvania. Mr. Benjamin presented the memorial ol cit izens of Indiana, praying for leave to institute a suit agaiuftt the United States, to teat the lui bility of the United States for the debts of Texas. . . Mr. Bell presented the memorial of oitizens of Tennessee, in favor of a repeal of all duties on railroad iron, or the extension ol time lor the payment of the same. Mr. Badger introduced a bill moviding for the removal of obstructions in the mouth ot Cape Fear river, North Carolina. Mr. Fitspatriok and Mr. Clay introduced bills granting land to Alabama to aid in the construction of railroads in that State. Mr. Fish presented the memorial of oitizens of New York, asking a modification of the revenue laws, so far as they provide for the forfeiture of the vessel Irom which shall be il legally landed goods valued at $400. The Senate then resumed the consideration of the bill to establish a Territorial Govern ment for Nebraska. . x. ^ . Mr. Waller said he had no intention to reply to the extraordinary speeoh delievered in the Senate on Thursday and Friday. The rarsonal relations existing between him and the Senator from Connecticut prevented any controversy between tliem in the Senate. He believed the organization of these Territorial Government in Nebraska and Kansas as absolutely indis pensable to the safety and protection of the numerous emigrants who annually cross them to the shores of the Pacific. The great annual emigration from Europe to this country would find homes in these Territories, and build up States in the oentre of the Confederacy, lhe faot that of the Indians now inhabiting the territory a large number had been removed there nnder a promise of a permanent home, was a serious objection j but it was one which oould be easily provided for, in a spirit of jus tice and humanity, by this bill. It was a mel anoholy reflection that the Indian race was to be swept away, but it was nevertheless true The question whether the Ordinance of 1 - 87 was effectual over the territory to which ifcwas intended to apply, had been muoh controvert ed He knew that the people of Indiana and Illinois made frequent appeals to Congress to withdraw its prohibition of Slavery, and that Congress refused it The Senator from Ohio IMr. Chase) plaoed this refusal on the ground that Congress considered the law irrepealable, and had quoted from a report made by the celebrated Mr. Randolph. He thought the Senator should have reaa more of that report, and then it would have been seen that it was refuted on tho ground that Slavery would not be proper for the soil and climate of these States. Between 1810 and 1820, the number of slaves in Indiana and Illinois was greatly inoreased ... , _ Ho wa? no party to the Missouri Compro mise, which was adopted at a time wuen dan ger to tho Union was threatened. He was in no way bound by that act. He was under no obligations to abide by it. It was adopted by men who had the fame political power, ana no more, than he now had The Compromise of 1850 was adopted under like oiroumstannoc', and by it he was in no way bound. They were inconsistent; and if oompclled to choose between them, he would prefer the latter, whioh had received the approval of the poople of the United States in the eleotion of 1852 Those Senators who now so strenuously maintained the inviolability of the Missouri Compromise, at the last session voted to violate the Compromise of 1850, by repealing the Fu gitive Slave Law. No man oould deny but tke repeal of that act would dissolve the Union When the time srrived when the North would tell the Sooth that it oould not pursue and re claim in the free Stat? its escaped property, then the lime for the dissolution of the Union would have arrived, as it ought to. He was born and educated in a free State He deprecated the existence of Slavery, but*r had no prejudices against anything but wilt was unconstitutional. He denied that he had ever seen anything demoralizing in Slavery. He oompared the morals an J patriotism of the South with the North, and held that the former was equally higl", whether with reference to its males or females. Slavery existed in Vermont and other n-ee States in 1800, and he d?d not believe it would have ever been abolished there, had it not l>een found to be unprofitable. The proposition to exclude Slavery north of 36 deg 30 min. wan no more just than it would be if the South was to propose that Slavery should never be ex oluaed north of that line. This was not a contest between Slavery ami Freedom, but whether the people should be allowed to decide for themselves. It would be a mockery to give them the power when a State, and, deny it during the term of the Ter ritorial organization. He was a native ol Ohio, and some cf hi* dearest, feelings were oonnected with her interests, but he considered she had committed an egregious error in send ing to tho Senate two Abolitionists. He denounoed all political Abolitionists. He never knew one, who was a practical political Abolitionist, but who, in social life, was an in tormeddler with his neighbors' affairs. He was not a Northern man with Southern prin ciples He was one who believed there was no safety fop this union, exoept in the mainte nanes of the Constitution. Mr. Houston got the floor, but said he was too indisposed to go on to-day. The subject was postponed till to-morroW. Mr. Gwin gave notice of a Deficiency bill. On motion of Mr. Slidell, the Senate pro oeeded to the consideration of a bill granting land to Louisiana, to aid in the construction ol a railroad ib that State; and a debate ensued on a motion by Mr. Bayard to p^tpone it. The Senate then went into Executive ses eion, and, after some time spent therein, the doors were opened, and the Senate adjourned. House of RtprtitiUalioes, Fib. 13, J 854. Mr. J. Glanuy Jonei, < f Pennsylvania, mem ber elect from the 8tb District of that State, to supply the place ni*<U vacant bv tbe death of the late Hon H A Muhlenberg, ap K&red, aud wan qualified a* a member of this dy. Mr. Washburne, of Illinois, asked leave to present the memorial of oitstons of Savaunah, in that State, against the admission of Nebras ka and Kansas, in defiance of the stipulations of the Missouri Compromise. Objection being made, the memorial wan not received at thin time. The Speaker announced that the committees would now be called upon for resolutions, &o. Mr. Breokenridge moved a suspetmion of the rules, to euable hun to present a Deficiency bill, which he explained to be substantially the s line as that origiually presented by the Com mittee of Ways and Means, but without the amendments made in Committee of the Whole Oj the submission of this motion, a soeup of indescribable excitement, confusion, and disor der, arose. The Chair wus addressed and in terrogated by several members at a time. "Order" wus repeatedly called Speakers woto interrupted?gentlemeu arose to^ order, &ix Messrs. Breokenridge, MoMullen, Taylor, Stephens of Georgia, Campbell, Hamilton, Orr, Peck ham, Disney, Robins, aud others, partici pated in these proceedings. At length, the question on the suspension of the rules was taken, and decided in the nega tive?yoas 107, nays 72?there not being two thirds in the affirmative. Mr. Breckenridge then mov^d a suspension of tbe ruled to enable him to move to take up the motion to reoonsidor the voto by whioh the Deficiency bill was rejected, which was laid on the table on Thursday last In other words, the Deficiency bill was, on Thursday last, de feated on a motion to engross it for a third readiug; aud u motion to reconsider that vote was, on motion, laid on the table. Fhe object is, by successive steps, to got back to and take up the defeated bill, for renewed consideration. Rejected?yeas 102, nays 77. Mr. Clingman moved a suspension of the rules, to enable him to present a resolution, askiug information relative to custom-houses the revenues of which do not exceed expenses. Refused.

Mr. Stranb asked leave to present a memo rial from the Friend* ol Pennsylvania, New j Jersey, and Delaware; which was refused. Mr. Florence asked leave to present the same j memorial; whioh was refused; but he was permitted to make an explanation, which he did by saying that he was opposed to theobject of the memorialists, not believing that Slavery would be introduced into Nebraska in conse quence of the passage of the bill named in the memorial; but that the people from whom this memorial oomes are of the highest respectabili ty and worth, and merit the most respectful hearing. Mr Booock proposed a ioint resolution, to the effect that no oontract shall be made by the Navy Department with any person not a reg ular dealer in or manufacturer of the articles contracted for.

To those persons who may visit Washington, and are in want of a boot that cannot bo excelled, either in quality or workmanship, we would call their atten tion to the card of Henry J.-inney, to be found un?4cr the head of " Washington." A handsome and noat ly-mado boot is not at all timus a source of pleasure to the wearer, but olten one of extrowo torture; this is caused by the bungling manner in which the boot is fitted to tho foot. Mr Janney ha* devoted much of his time in studying the construction of the human loot, in order to ascertain bow a boot should be cut and fitted, that will be perfectly easy to all psrts of the foot. In this ho has succeeded, no that it matters not what may bo the shape of. or tho number of corns on the foot, his boot is perfectly easy. Thus he hu combined beauty with comfort.
