Jackson, of Georgia, which was adopted by the House of Representative on Minil;i V. by vote ul 101 yens to 01 cays: Rrxolced, That we recognize the bind ing efficacy of iho compromise of the con Utution, ond believe it to bo the inten lion of the people generally, as we here by declare it to be ours individually, to abide such compromises, ami I sustain the laws necessary to carry them out the provision for the delivery of fngiive slaves and the act of the last Congress for that purpose included and that we deprecate all further agitatinu of ques tions growing nut of ihst provision of the question embraced in the acts of the lust Congress, known as the compromise, and of questions generally connected with the institution of slavery, as unnecessary, useless and dangerous. Mr. II il Iyer offered the following ad dition to the above resolution, being the samosslhat which was offered by Col. , Polk, and voted down, in the democratic caucus of the House, at the beginning of the session) Resolved, That the series of acts pas cd during the first session of the 3 1 nl Congress, known as the compromise, are regarded as a fionl adjustment and a per manent settlement of the questions there in ombraced, and should he regarded, maintained, and executed as such. This was also adoptej by a vote of 98 to 61. It may be a mutter of curiosity, f not of profit, to publish an analysis of the Vote, sectional aim political The Wash inglon Union furnishes the following: Affirmative Northern democrats, 35; ' Southern democrat 30; Southern whigs, 20; Northern whim, 7 total, 101. Negative Northern democrats, 22; Southern democrats. 1 1 ; Southern whig, 1; Northern whigs, 30 total, CI. Mr. Hillyer's resolution was adopted by the following vote; Affirmative Northern democrats, 36; Southern demooruts, 30; Southern whigs, 22; Northern whigs, 10 total. 93. Negative- -Not thorn democrats, 20; Southern democrats, 1C; Southern whig, 1; Northern whigs, 27 total, 04. It will thus be seen that 42 northern nd 52 southern members voted for the original resolution and 52 northern and 12 southern members against it. For the amendment, there were 46 northern und 50 southern members, and rgni list it, 47 not thorn and 17 southern members. O I. I .t . T . ? .L . ou muqu lor mo vine, ma ramei cu rinua that some members, who think one generation has no right to bind a succeed ing genetation, even with a constitution, should suppose that they can declare i measure of Congress a "finality." Nev ertheless, as we consider the compro mine measures as a "fixed a. id happy fact," at loast for many yssrs, there is no great harm in members of Cot, gress imu ing theiiHolves with the idea that they have the power to make things "perpet ual" I. S. We notice that the name of the Reptcsenlative from this district is not recorded among the yraa and nays Mil. Stanly and Uen Scott. The Hon. Edwaid Stanly, of North Carolina, is out in a letter in yesterday's Republic, in relation to the Whig candidute for the Presidency, the comjuomiai and the po aitioo of his Slate. He slates that Mr, Fillmore ia the fust choice of Ninth Carolina, and that no one not known to ' be iu favor of the compromise as afiimli ty can receive its vote. He says, how evor: "Hot it is due to myself to say that I have never said, aud will not now say. that 'I cu n't and won't go for Scott.' On the contrary, I have always said I knew be was as.eurneat, B'denl and Zealo is a friend of the compromise mensutns as there was in the United Si at en. I know, nf mi own hnnwleilge fie van so, before their jum;e through Cangress and after varth. I heard him reprove Noithern men who were opposed to them, before they passed Congress, in such strong terms that I thought would offend them." No Doubt or iT.--Sir'n.s, the Colum bus correspondent nf ihe Circleville Watchman, iu continuation nfhis spicy letter of laut week, is of the opinion that the present ia a very unfortunate Legis lature, and to its peculiar construction attribute! tho late cnup d'bridgo, the printing question and vanoua other matters, which makes democrats exclaim in tiie expressive language of Dr. Olds that they ore ashamed of the present con di lion nf the pat ty. Instead nf doing up the public business, lie thinka they pay too much attention to the spoils.

This will be suf. ficint,"we understand, to lay the track from the Linle Miami Railroad to this city, distance of ninety miles. It is to he delivered in New York and New Orleans. The recent unfavorable weather hss.to some extent, retarded operation! in the neighborhood of this city; but every prep aration has been made to progress rap idly. There is now a force in the vicin ity of this city, another three miles west nd a third in the neighborhood of Aman- la. Near Circleville, some two or three miles of the toad have been graded. In a few days, the force will be largely in creased and the woik pushed to a rapid completion. It will be finished, it is generally understood, in the stipulated time, and it will be noticed that no delay will be caused fur want of iron. RrjoiciNu. The Eagle, upon the re sult of the olection in Greenfield, ex claims, "Greenfield township is redeem ed." We don't believe a word of it. The good Whigs of that lowiiahip wil, not permit it. Upon the eve of a presi. dential contest, let the "Centre" show itself sound to the core. The Circleville Watchman cornea to us with the "coon" down and the "rooa let" up. The cut ia expressive, but the Herald says the Whigs might have car lied the town, but didn't. That is like wise expressive of duty neglected. A Man Drowned. We clip the fol lowing announcement from the Circle, vil'e Herald of Friday last: "A young man named Geo. Luckard, engaged in the employ nf Mr. Robinson, a cattle dealer, was drowned in Scippo creek, about four miles south-east of this place, on Monday last, while attempting to ride across the stream. It is under stood that he formerly resided in Bremen, Fail field couuty, and has a brother in California, and a married sister in Som erset, His remains have not as yet been found." Women and Newspapers. The facetious editor of the Hoston Republi can ia warm in praise of his lady subscri bers. He says: "Women are the best subscribers in the world to newspapers, magazines, etc. We have been editor now going on for eight years, and we have never loat a aingle dollar by female subscribers. They seem to make it a point of conscientious duly to pay the preacher and the printer two classes of the community who suffer more by bad pay, and no pay at all, than all the rent pin together. Whenever we have a women's name on our book, we know it is just as good for two dollars aud a half aa a picayune ia for a ginger cake." Moreover, be asserts that ladies read Ihe newspapers to which they subscribe, aud concludes by declaring that he would rather have a dozen ladies on 'his book than one maul" The Lunu Auonv is Over,! After a moat painful and protracted labor of one quarter of a year ami one week, the Leg-i-dstureof Ohio has finally famed a law for pulling the priming out to the lowest bidoVi! We repeat what we said some days since, that this thing has been well managed. After the House had slept over the bill about six weeks, it passed, and went into the hands nf Senator Mull gen, who permitteil it to aleep some weeks in his desk. He then inported another and entiiely different bill, which the Senate paased Bfter a long time. The House refused ihe Senate bill, and the matter has been hung up very conven iently between the two Houses ever since). 1 he timo has now come when It will he imnnsihlH fur anv ennlrr et to be made durini this session, and it was safe lo naas it.

O. S. Journal. California Emigration. It appears by tecent accounts from California, that every occupation in which labor is re quited iu that new Stale, is overstocked, so that the thousands nf poor young men in Ihe old Stales, who have lately left comfortable homos, will, it is feared, endure much privation and distreaa.

At last (latet the engineers of England were in ihe eleventh week nf their strike, and there ia no prospect that it is likely to terminate at present, the weekly ex peuditure nf the Amalgamated Society for the support of members out of work, and linn society men, is nearly three thousand pound); consequently, some thing like thirty thousand pounds have already been distributed by tins society since the commencement of the strike, on the 10th of January. More than one- half of this amount was voluntarily con tributed by different trades unions and societies, anil further assistance is promts ed from all quarters. By such nid and with the funds ol the Amalgamated Society, (composed of different trades,) the men are enabled tocootintie on strike. The society now proposes to borrow the sum of ten thousand pounds from the trade societies, for the immediate re lief of the men, so as to give time for the organization of a proper aystem of con tiiiunus support through cooperative work shops. Tub Tobacco Trade. By reference to our commeicial report of to day, it wil be observed that unusually large transac linns have taken place in tobacco within the pas', few days. About a fort night ago salea were made to the extent nf two thousand hogsheads Ohio tobacco, for the French market. During the present week il will be seen that two thousand bogheads more have been sold, mostly no French account. The entire value of the sales noticed to-day is about one bun dred thousand dollars, and of that allud ed to, previously sold, another hundred thousand, thus making the very handsome amount on wo hundred thousand dollars, brought into use within two weeks, in exchange for the single commodity of Ohio tobacco.

It has recently been stated that the health nf Louia Napoleon is in a most unsatisfac lory state; and some private letters say thai the French President has beon so seriously ill that he was unable lo appear In public. Reports to this etiect were probably circulated to account for his non-oppeariiiice in public, wtnrli sorne journals have attributed to hi.i fear of as sassinatton. It ii known, however, that Louis Napoleon is afllicted with a severe complaint iu his head, which, nt times cause great pain. It is staled tnai. these attacks should continue, he will be altogether unlit to transact any publi business. Tiinm Cent Coins.

Armv Speculations. A recent court maitial held in California, against some army officers who had been accused nf speculating off the Government, resulted in their acquittal on the ground that thp Court was of the opinion that "it was not unbecoming an officer and gentleman to engngo iu such speculations." It np peared uponthe trial thntLu't.Col. Honk er had purchased 1.70 tons of hay at $35 per Inn and had cleared $12 per ton in the transaction of buying for and selling to the Government. Tho Secretary of War has reported the proceedings to Congress and has very wisely issued stiict orders to prevent, on tho pain of dismissal from the service, all such speculations in the future, on the ground that they are highly deroga tory to the character of the army. He has also invoked Congress to psss a law on the subject. We hope he will sue reed, as in thut case one leak hole of the Treasury, which has been transmitted Iu the present Administration, will he stop pod. CoNNrcTicuT, The following ia the result ofthe recent election in this State The Maine Law had more to do with it than politics, Thomas H. Seymore Democrat, is elected Governor hy the people over all others, by about six hun dred majority. The democrats have al so elected fourteen Senatots and the whigs seven. In the House the demo crats have 35 majority, and 42 on join hnllot. This secures a United States Senator to fill tho present vacancy, Rhode Island. The Whigs have done much better than they did last year Governor Allen, the Democratic candi date for Governor, is elected over Har ris, whig, by about 300 majority; but the whig candidate for Lieut. Governor is elected, over Lawrence, democrat, the present incumbent, by a large majority The whigs have two majority in the Sen. ale, and eight in the House, giving them 10 majority on joint ballot, which secures lo them the United States Senator in place of Mr, Clarke, whose term expires on the th of March, 1853. There was no choice for two Senators and four rep rcaenlal'ves. The city of Providence gave a consid. erable whig majority and elected nearly the wholewhig ticket. In Washington county the vote for Governor stood Har- ria, whig 1.194; Allen, dem., 1,013; be' ing 304 whig gain since last year. In this county the whigs gained three Sena tors and three Representatives, Kossuth's Residence in Enoland. We find the following paragroph in a London paper, in reference to the con templnted residence of Kossuth in that city: It was liis intention with about fnrty of bis countrymen lo reside in Belgium, and there quietly watch the progress of events in Europe. The sole reason why Kossuth would have pielerred Uelgium lo England was the greater economy practicable in the former country. The altered state of alTuirs in France has, however, satisfied him that the Belgian government would not sanction his resi deuce in Belgium at present; and, there fore, he haa fixed on England as the place nf his residence for a season. His course of procedure, we learn from one of his most intimate friends, will be lo assume a passive attitude for the present, in the assured beliet that events are rap I idly hurrying onward to a great crisis bjlh in Gormany and Italy.'

Cleveland Herald. A M kip. ha nt's Honor. The land occupied by the public institutions of this city at south Uoston, comprising originally sixty acies, was purchased in 1 S3 1 lor six thousand dollars. 1 he ac count of the purchase is given to the following efleel in Mr. Quincy's recently published History of Boston: Mr. natnuei uinwn, a lioston mer chant of the "old srhonl," waa the owner nf the land. When the plan of tha Houses of Industry and Correction wae projected, the chairman nl the commit tee appointed for his business, applied to Mr. Brown to know hts price. He men tioned one hundred dollars an acre, A vote of tho town was obtained for the purchase of the land. Mr. Brown, when applied to a second time by the chair man, sairl, "Mr. Quincy, you know the agreement was veibal.and not binding in law; and since our interview, I have been offernd 500 dollars an acre for my. land, making a dfferonce to me, over your ofler, of twenty Jive thousand dollars. However, sir, I like the object. I think the lam! uncommonly well adapted to it. You have my word, and I am not dispos ed lofall buck from it;- you shall have my deed." It may he added that the value of the land in that neighborhood immediately rose to 1000 dollars an acre, so that Mr. Brown, in fact, made a gift to the town nf nearly 60,000 dollars. Mr. Quincy adds "Samuel Brown had beon the archi tect of his own fortune; was active, judi cious and punctual as a man of business; of a high sense of honor , distinguished fur his readiness to assist his friends witb his advice and his fortune; public spirit ed, without ostentation or any selfish views in exliibitihg it. Respect for hia memory should ever be cherished by the citizens of Boston." " Mr. Brown died about ' twenty-five years ago. His residence was in the upper part of Hanover street, opposite EbiTs Coffee-House. Boston Courier. The Sandwich Islands. Mr.Wyil lie, the Hawaiian Minister nf Foreign Aflairs, has published a letter, in which it appears that the Hawaiian Govern ment relies upon the United States for protection against those who may feel disposed to appropriate a position eo im portant to the commerce of Ihe .world. Fears it appeals are entertained of an invasion from California. The energy displayed by Captain Gardner, of the U. S. ship Vandalia, is highly spoken of. We notice also that the United Statea officers at Honolulu have been drilling he native troops in military exercise, that they may I e better able to protee themselves. Thirty years ago the late James ' Amroy purchased a tract of land situat ed between the Sixty third and seventy third streets, containing about sixty three acres For this tract he paid $4,400. Within the past month this properly has been sold at auction, having been divid ed into nearly 1,000 lots, and the pur chase money amounts to a trifle over $300,000. Thus the original investment has doubled every sixty dayt for the patt thirty years. This is almost equal to the famous Sonora quarts mines of Cal ifornia, where they pick up gold in luropa of two or three thousand dollars, if we may believe the last accounta from 1 Dorado.
