The treatv was ratified with that understanding. It came back from England with instructions to secure the construction excepting: Honduras. While this proposition for construction was pending between the negotiators, Clayton called on Kingpcrsonally and asked whether he should return it to the Senate. King teplied, f 'Dismiss it. The Senate never mil ratify it If sent back iiie whole treaty will be rejected." Clayton assured him he would dismiss if, and King supposed it had been dismissed, until the correspondence came m last week. It will be remembered tliat England, under a very old treaty with Spain, had a right to cut logwood at Honduras and the dependent islands. When Cass called oil King last Thursday inorniug he misunderstood King's statement. King diet write the letter to Clayton which Clayton publishes, i ' " j a. i it. i t!i iV .

As nollced in our tele graphic dispatches yesterday, the second trial of the caloric ship was regarded as eminently successful. The Tew York Express, in referring to the first trial, sums up as follows a few of the advantages Avhich caloric will be found to have over steam. Should the caloric ship ej:periment be finally stamped with complete success: "1. The. caloric engine burns about one tenth as much fuel as a steam engine; hence a caloric ship of the largest size, may circumnavigate iJie globe without stopping to take in coal; hence, not a sail will be seen on the ocean in fifty years after the success of the new principal is certain; hence ma chinery will be applied to a thousand arts which now require manual labor; hence, the possibility of that long desired machine plough; and hence the coming of that good time when arduous manual toil will absolutely cease under the sun. 2. The cost of the .caloric engine is about the same as the steam engine, minus the cost of the boilers. 3. Only one-fourth as many engine men will be required on board a caloric hip as are necessary for a steamer. 4. Uo smoke whatever will issue from a caloric furnace when anthracite coal is used, and conse quently no huge unsightly smoke pipe will be ne cessary, and the rigging will be as clean as that of a sailing ship. 5. There can be no bursting or collapsing of ooiiers, ior tne simple reason mat tnere win oe no boilers to burst. 4The worst accident that can hap- A- ' . "... . pen to a eaionc engine is ior il io stop; nor is watchfulness imperatively required, as in no case can a dangerous accident occur. 0. Owing to the extreme simplicity of the caloric engine me wear ana -tear win oe very slight, and the duration of the engine proportionably long." ly understood that the treaty did not include British Hon duras. While Mr. King deuies positively that he ever un derstood the treaty to admit any such rights of Giat Bri tain in Honduras as she claims, he insists that his letter to and conversation with Mr. Clayton referred only to this com mercial claim to cut logwood. This, of course, all occurred after the Senate had ratified the treaty. In confirmation of his statement, .Mr. King refers to thacl03ing paragraph of the same letter, viz: "Frankness becomes our government, but you should be careful not to use any expression which would -seem to recognize the right ,of England to any portion of Honduras." llr. Kinir asks what this latter clause could have .referred toA if he understood that the British claim to Hon duras was conceded. It was this he said, the Senate perfect ly understood, that there was no reference made in that con nection to fhe British colony. Mr. King denounces Clayton bitterly, and charges wrong intentions upon him. To show that Clayton took the same view of the treaty, Mr. King re fers to the former's letter of thcTth May, 1850, to Mr. Squier, charge to Nicaragua, w hich declares that after exchange of ratifications of the treaty, Great Britain would have no au thority ot any kind in Central America. Mr. King's friends admit that Mr. Clayton, when the trea ty was ratified, honestly believed that it excluded Great Bri tain; but they charge that when be negotiated the additional article of construction, he dishonestly kept it from the Sen ate, for fear he would lose the treaty in which lie. took so much interest, that he laid a trap for King, in his letter of July 4th, in which King replied as above indicated. Such is the explanation which Senator Mason will probably ina&c uu uenaii ui Jving. SLAVERY REMINISCENCES. The 'New York Tribune puts on record, with evident satisfaction, the following facts relating. to slavery in .New York. The law of 1841, upon which the vote is given, is the one under which theLem mon slaves were set free. This law was passed, it will be noticed, by whig votes. In the Senate, not ope democrat voted for it The entire affir mative vote was whig, while the negative votes, with but a single exception, were cast by demo crats. These facts go to prove, what we have all along asserted, and what southern whigs have now scarcely the face to controvert, namely, that the de mocratic party north and south, is the only natiorfal party, and the one to which alone the south must look for fair play and the observance of her rights. Wherever the subject of slavery is legislated upon at the north, the whig party will be found voting against the interests and rights of the south, and the democratic party to sustain them: The work of eradicating slavery from the State of Sew York was commenced in 1795 by John Jay, powerfully urged lorward by Daniel D. Tomp kins, and finally completed in 1841 under William H. Seward. The last vestige of that Great wron" namely, the law which gave pennission to slave holders to hold their slaves in this State for nine months was repealed by the legislature of that year, as follows: This bill came up on its final passage in the Sen ate on the 24th of May, 1841. After ineffectual and repeated motions to adjourn, to postpone, &c, the bill passed Ayes 11, JNocs 8, as follows: Ayes Messrs. A. B. Dickinson, Abram Dixon, James Gr.

The vote on its final passage in the Assembly was taken the next day, and resulted iu Ayes, 50; 2Taysf49 Among the Ayes we find Henry G. caton, beth C. Hawley, Geo. A. Simmons, Speculation. Two gentlemen purchased the other day, 300 acres of land near Newark, !N". J., for $150,000. In a few days after they sold .out one-tenth of the, land, in lots, for what the whole cost them. They expect to make two million of dollars by the speculation. M. DeMakcoleta, the Nicaraguan Minister, who has been dismissed by our Government, has written a letter to the editor of the Courier desEtats Unis, in which he says: "I have done nothing but fol low the instructions of my Government to the very j letter, and that with all possible respect; one day, my correspondence will be published, and justice will be done." Virginia Legislature. The house of delegates has passed a bill authorizing the citizens of Marshall to subscribe to the Marietta and Cincinnati Rail road; and a bill incorporating a company to con struct a railroad from some convenient point on the Manassas Gap Railroad to the Ohio river, at or near Letart Falls in West Columbia in the county of Mason. The New Hampshire Test. The lower branch of the New Hampshire Legislature has concurred, by a large majority, in the Senate's resolution dep recatory of the religious test in the constitution of that State. It is not improbable that the people of the Granite State will, within a year or two, efface this foul and only blot from their escutcheon. Mr. Badger's Nomination to the Vacancy in the U. S. Supreme Court. The Louisville Journal learns by a letter from .Washington, that, a few hours after Mr. Badger's nomination by President Fillmore to the vacancy on the bftnch of the Su preme Court, a Democratic Senatorial caucus, at which twenty-three Senators were present, decided, by a vote of twenty-two to one, to lay the nomina tion on the table; so that Gen. Pierce will have the privilege of making a nomination to suit him self. Pennsylvania. Gov. Bigler sent his message to the legislature on the oth inst. He is highly grati fied at the result of the presidential election. There is a surplus of 071,000 in the treasury over ex penditures the past year. The receipts for the next year are estimated at $4,G2G,500, and the expenses at $4,02S,670. The state debt is $40,000,000; the prcttilyv.rpught wreaths of laurel and white roses, ana a silver plate-bearing tlieinscription Benjamin Pierce- Died Jan. G, 1853. Aged 11 years and 9 montlts.

At 1A. o'clock the remains were conveyed to Con- cord in a special train for burial. Gen. Pierce is recovering rapidly-from his lame ness, and will jsoon regain his usual health. Mrs. Pierce's mind lias been restored to a degree of calmness and resignation which enabled her to attend the services this morning, and which in spires the most encouraging hopes of her friends. She will remain with her sister, Mrs. Aiken, until her health is sufficiently restored" to enable her to return to New Hampshire. Benj.Kitteridge,of Pelham, N. IL, who was' ta ken to the Andover Poor-House after the accident will probably die of his injuries. ' E. B. Bailey, of Dunbarton, N.H., who Is atLaw reflce, will also probably die of his injuries. ANOTHER DISPATCH. .Concord, Monday, Jan. 10 P. M. The fu neral cortege of young Benjamin Pierce has thismo ment passed on its way to the old North Church Cemetery, where his remains will be deposited. The procession was simple and unostentatious. In front was the hearse, on runners, flanked by four boys on either side, sixteen years of age, . as pall bearers; then followed four coaches on wheel-', and six large sleighs, containing relatives, friends and-neighbors of General Pierce, and from a dozen to twenty of young Pierce's playmates and com panions. . General Pierce rode in the first coach. Mrs. P. did not come on with the remains of her child. 110,503 65 -13.S17 87- 133,321 52 1,457 69 a. .

His inabil ity to comprehend may be, and certainly is, his mis fortune, but it just as certainly is not our fault We do not set up to correct natural deficiencies. Some years since there was passed a law of Con gress forbidding the transmission through the mails of incendiary and insurrectionary documents. Vn cle Tom's Cabin certainly comes within the plain proyisjons of this law. And if it be wrong to af ford mail facilities for its circulation, it surely is wrong for an editor to stimulate public curiosity to see it and thus produce the demand lor iL It is to answer to say that its statements are exaggerated and false. Falsehoods Save bea believed before now. Every principle ofSo&Uieni police condemns its circulation among us. Our neighbor says thac Uncle Tom's Cabin is harmless. just. ns the Spirit of the.Press is. This may be wit, but it certainly is noanswer to the arraignment we prefer against those papers which aid in giving reputation to a mischievous work. Cassius Clay's abolition paper in Lexington Avas full of falsehoods, but the people suppressed it and their course has been sustained. The True Whig has an article in reference to the number of democrats whose names have been sug gested for Governor. The best thing in the article is the quotation it makes from the Spirit. The fact is, the democratic party has more material to make Governors out of than, the whig, and of course Ike sensible men the democrats intend to examine it all before selecting.
