The States volunta rily entered the Union alter an able discus sion of its advantages and disadvantages Ltl t-ar of the opposition was that the federal government had too much power; that under the constitution it possessed ihe means to ab-soro within itself all the pow crs reserved to the States, and become in the end, Dot a Republic with limited pow- cis, out a consolidated despotism of a ma jority. It is a democratic principle that a majority should rule where there is a community of interests; but it is obvious that, in a country as extended as ours, there can be a community 0f interests in a few things, and therefore i; is not reasona ble nor democratic that the arbitrary will of a majority should have unlimited con trol. No one would contend that a major ity of Indiana should govern Kentucky, or mat the majority of Kentucky should gov ern Indiana. Rut it is not Worth while to di.-ctisS so plain a point. The merest typo to politics understands it, but the importance of the subject is not now every where appreciated. A!! ISM LotigterS should havo power to do was attempted to be specified in the fede ral constitution. Construe that instru ment strictly, and perhaps no improper en croachment upon LStatc rights can take place. Hut the virtue of all Written con stitutions must depend upon the wisdom and virtue of tiie living power that inter prets and executes them. We can bard y see in advance what a written constitution will become in practice. Time changes written constitutions, and it has changed tho constitution ol the United States. The tendency to Consolidation cannot be dis guised, and it is a fatal looking tendency, liad the area of this Union remained what it was when the constitution was formed, its interests would not be so diversified, and the evils of the discretionary will of the majority would not be so great. Had the framers of that instrument foreseen the last extent to be embraced in the Union, they would have been even more cautious, and granted the federal government less power. Will their posterity be equal to ihe task of appreciating the changes in their situation, and providing for its necessities? On this subject we have some apprehensions. The love of power, its tendency to increase, the profits of successful domagoguery upon local and sectional interests and prejudi ces, are potent causes of mischief. If it Here true that the lederal government has a right to force a S ate into submission to its laws, and that a State ha no peacea ble redress, is it wise now to proclaim and insist upon n? I-. it not the part of wise and philosophic statesmanship to let each a power die out of the opinions and sentiments of men? We deny that ihe power exists; but suppose it could be pro ved to the contrary, as fairly as such a prop osition, involved in doubt as it is, could be, is it not too late now to talk of its exer cise? Is it not best to proclaim at all times that this Union is voluntary on the pari of the States, bound together only by the tics of blood, of interests, of national asso ciations; by common hopes and a common destiny? VT hy talk of exercising a power which, should it ever be resorted to, must end in disasters to the common hopes of all? Suppose the States on the shores of the Pacific should resolve to seco'e from the Union, would the States on this side be guilty of the insanity of employing co ercion to prevent it? An error in sentiment on this subject may lead to consequences that all would deplore when too lae to apply a remedy. We need not be told about the weakness of a government that depends upon volun tary consent. The States came volunta rily into the Union; they have voluntarily remained in it; and the reasons for remain ing have only grown stronger by time A State by seceding, supposing the right acknowledged, cannot change its location. It must remain associated with the other Stales from the necessity of its situation. It will have only the rights it has the pow er to maintain. The law of nations is of little avail to a small State in a conflict between large ones. It can make no cal culations upon its independence. There are no limits to the encroachments of pow er but power. If a State assumes that its rights are sacrificed by the power of the federal government, when it has the guarantee- of the constitution, how will it fare when it has no such guarantees to plead? Will a State be treated with more consid eration out of the Union than in it? If the federal authorities aie unscrupulous and tyrannical toward States they are bound to respect by the solemn obligations of ofRo cial oaths will they not be less regardful of rights which have no such guarantees? These considerations will induce all sane men to adhere to the Uuion; to recti fy abuses, if they exist; never to give up the ship whilst there is a plank left. If wrongs exist, right them. The ballot-box is the means to correct evils, and the pow er is not exhausted. We believe that a sense of justice will prevail in the great majority of these States; to it, let the ap peal be made against political wrongs. A few failures will not discourage the brave, and drive them to remedies a thou sand times worse than the disease has yet become, or than it ever will become, as we fervently hope. We do not surrender the riht of seceision; but it is a right to be used only when revolution would !?e advi sable! We do not apprehend that secession will vr bp. resorted to under any deliberate .iiiiUtion of the political advantages. Tt.A threats of force may provoke ex col-Hreme measures; they "v ' . 1 can oniy ao evu. Disembarass the subiect from any such theory of government, and the main incen tive to secession will be taken away. A Week's work.

From the Charleston Mercury. Under which Kin;? We have been struck by the change of ph aseology in tho l ist invitation of the Co-operation party, from that which they first adopted. At the outset, they only in vited to their meeting those who were op posed to sece-sion "under existing circum stances;" and we understood that a large portionof them were pledged to resistance finally, even if there could be found no field of resistance but the narrow confines of South Carolina; that they abjured and scorned the suspicion of tending even by a hair's breadth towards submission, and held themselves, of all resistance men, to be the most true, effective and unconquer able of all those who set themselves against the recent aggressions of the Federal Government, and had devoted themselves to its overthrow. Have they mistaken their opinion? Have they only recently found out what tliAV were aiming at? We find in their test call that they simply invite those who are opposed to secession; not seccssiou under existing circumstances," but "se- cession" absolutely. The simple negation ol separate State action, appear now as tho sole bond of the party. Is that the posi tionthey dssire to occupy? Have they nothing better to ofier to a people living under a sense of wrong and danger? Have they wouuj up all their infinite parade ot wrongs indicted on us, and indignant re tent men! of those wrongs, by the lame and impotent conclusion of opposition to separ ate State action? Do they appear before the District in the undisguised character of submisiiouists? We do not ask these questions unmeaning ly, ar d still less in the spirit of taunting. If we are not deeply deceived, a large pertion of the Co-operation party were men pledged in every way to resistance. They simply bound themselves by that name, to seek the object in the form of combined resistance by several States of the South. But lesistance was the object and aim of the ir union with the party. Where are they now! The reliance of co-operation has continually rece- deu in our opinion it has receded precisely in proportion as the prospect of the separate action of Soum Carolina has been clouded by internal divisions and the recent vote of Mississippi has closed the last door of hope that our State could commence resistance in concert with any one of her sisters. It is now, when there is no hope or chance of co operation from abroad, that the so-called Co operation party assumes its character of a party merely combined to prevent separate State action, to obstruct resistance in the only form in which there is the faintest pros pect of giving to resistance a substantial form. Have they really smothered their re- sentments; have they buried tneir snarp swords; have they again folded the flag of . 1 1. Unionism around them, and consented to serve that Government they have so bitterlv denounced, till it shall have the folly to com mit acts to flagrant enough to arouse people who have been deaf to its past denunciations, and insensible to aggressions that put in peril the dearest and greatest interests involved in their social organization? We leave them to answer these questions not to us, but to their own hearts. It they are not sure tney are benefitting the State, they incur a fearful responsibility in opposing its carrying out their own principles. Later fbom Costa Rica Gen.

Ihe'acific reached her wharf about 8 o clock yesterday mornin at which eaily hour a large concourse of people tiad assembled to welome ihe fair songstress to our shores, which they did most enthusiastically by shouting the swinging of hats, waving of handkerchiefs and almost every other conceivable mode of demonstration.

Arrangements were made by the New York Musi al Fund Society So?iey, to give Miss Hayes a serenade on her arrival. Hut in consequence of the fatigue of the voyage across the Atlantic, it was surest ed by her friends that it had better bd de ferred until tonight. The suggestion was complied with, to the disappointment of a large assemblage who collected on the spot last evening but no will no doubt admi the judicious nei of the pos'pouement an 1 be on hand again to niht with a (arse increase of their numbers.

The price of tickets was five shillings sterling each, and the total receipts were $200, which, being handed to Miss Hayes, she passed over to Capiain Nye and requested him to distribute among his crew. In personal appearance, Miss Hayes is rather above the ordinary siz. She has a fine eye which lights u4j with great anima tion when she converses upon agreeable topics. Her whole faco beams with intel ligence, and a profusion of auburn hair adds greatly to her other attractions.

Evacuating the Foutuess. When the Prussian army entered Paris, one of the officers made particular interest to be quartered in a certain hotel in the lau bourg St. Germain, the residence af a widow lady of rank. On taking possesion of his bil.et, the colouel at once haughtily refused the apartments offered him; and, after a survey of the premises, insisted on having the best suite on the first floor, then occupied by the lady of the house herself. She protested and entreated in vain; the colonel was harh and peremptory; the lady had to abandou her sitting room, boudoir, and bed room, and content herself with the chambers intended for tho officer. From these, however, she was radely dislodged on the next day, the colonel demanding them for his orderly; and the lady had to creep into a servant's garret. This was not all. On fust taking possession, the officer had summoned the moitre T hotel, and commanded a rich dinner of twelve covers for the entertainment of a patty of his com rades. They came; the cellar had to yield its choicest wines; the house ivas fill ed with Bacchanalian uproar. The orgy was repeated both on the next day and the next following. On the morning afterward the efficer presented himslf before the la dy. '-You are perhaps annoyed at my proceedings in your hotel?" "Ceitainly," was the reply, "1 think 1 have cause to complain of the manner in which the law of the strongest hs been used here, in defi ance of the commonest regard due to my sex and age I have been roughly expelled from every habitable room in my own house and thrust into a garret; my servants have beeu maltreated; with my plate and provisions, and the best of my cellar, you have forced them to wait on the riotous feasting of your comrades. I have appealed to yojjr generosity, to your courtesy, but in vain. protest against such conduct, it is unwor thy of a soldier." "Madam," replied the Prussian, "what you say is perfectly true. SucA conduct is brutal and unbe coming. I have the honor to inform you mat wnat you navejusny compiamea 01 for the last three days is but a faint copy of the manner in which your son daily behaved in my mother's house in Berlin for more than six months after the battle of Jena.

Several newspaners have gravely anndun ced that during the temporary abence of Mr. Fillmore, Mr. Corwio, Secretary of the Treasury, is "Acting as President of the United States." Mr. Corwin may receive papers and answer questions, but he can do nothing as President mere than any messen in his department. 'The powers of the President are not transferable, and there is only one case in which any individual not elected can act as President, and that is when there is a vacancv in the office of President; add there it but one person who can "act" in case of vacancy, and that is the President of the sonata. No man should part with his own indi viduality, and become that of another. HVE ME A FAITHFUL HEART. BY ELIZABETH A. BLINN.

That look so fair to view, I ask not for snch diadems, But for a heart that's true.

When Mcdonough was First Lieutenant of ihe Siren, under the command ol Captain Smith, a circum stance occurred in the harbor of Gibraltar, sulficieutly indicative of the firmness and decision of hia character An American merchant brig came to anchor near 'die U. S. vessel. Macdouough. in the absence of Captain Smith, who had gone on shore, saw a boat from a Britten frigate board the brig and take from her a man. He in stall Iy maimed aud armed hi gig, and lUrsued the British boat, which he over took just as it reached the frigate, and without ceremony took the impressed man into his own boat. The frigate's boat was twice the force of his own; but the act was so bold as to astound the lieuten ant of the press. tariff, and no resistance was offered. Wh'en the aff tir was made known to the Iriiish Captain, he came on board the Siren in a creat race, and inquired how ie dared to take a man fiom his boat. Macdonough replied that the man was an American seaman, and was under the pi otection of the flag of the United States, aud that it was his duty to protect him. '1 he Captain, with a volley of oaths, swore lie would bring his ingate along- id e the Siren and sink her. "That you may do," said Macdonough, but while she swims the man youshul1 not have. The English Captain told Macdonough that he wa a young hair-brained fel.ow, and would repent hts rasl ness. ' Suppo sing sir," said he "1 had been in that boat would you have committed sue an act?" "1 should have made the attempt at ail iazards," was the reply. What sit!" said the English Captain, 'would you venture to interfere if I were to impress men from that brig?" "You can try it, sir," replied Macdon ough. The British Captain returned to his vessel, aud manned a boat and steered for the brig; Afacdonough did the same, but here the affiir ended; the English Captain took a circuitous route and returned to his ship. There was such a calmness in the conduct ofLieutenant Macdonough such a solemnity in his language such polite ness in his manner, that the British offi cer saw that he had to deal with no ordi nary man, and that it was not best to put him on his mettle. Industry. A lazy husband, or lazy wile, though rich as Crrnsus, is a bad bar gain in any rank of society, but unspeaka bly so in the ranks of our operatives. Here everything depends upon effort. You cannot help the mechanic or laborer who will not help himself. Indolence, like drunkenness, cannot be elevated. The proverb of Solomon has beefi verified in all ages "The drunkard aud the glutton shall come to poverty, and drowsiness shall cover a man with rags," and not only men but women too: for here, as in a 1 other thing?, you will sure ro have the same sauce (or the goose and the gander. Hun dreds of families are now in the most ab ject wretchedness, solely through their sloth and idleness. We would have ail young men inquire what time their sweet hearts rise in the morning, and how they spend their days; aud the young women to be just as inquisitive concerning their swaius. It ma not be very poetical to be thus prying, but it may save a world of trouble by-and-bye. Paul's rule, was, that "if people would not work they should not eat;" and it will not bo a bad addition to prohibit them from marrying, not by any law, but by every person refusing to be yoked with such useless and heartless mon sters.

Hundreds of voting men are flocking to the city, impatient to encounter the peril which overwhelmed a portion of their coun trymen, and avenge the murder of their brothers. There are at this moment not less lhan 300 in this ci V, who burn to meet the blood thirsty minions of Spain, and who only need means of transportation to proceed to the island forthwith.
