Even the Whig does not deny the facts set forlh in the Herald, bearing upon this point the question of jmtice. Quincy influ ence and Quincy power are relied on to sus tain unjust claims but power founded on injustice is transient-even now il U gliding from Quincy.

We give but a small portion of the debate that occurred. To gel clear of the prolix debate at tha eleventh hour of tha ses sion, the Senate finally voted to lay the motion lo take tip, on the tabic. The speech of Mr. Atchison, the Mittovri (!) Senator, is remarkable. He confesses that he hid oppoted taking up the measure earlier in the session; when he must have known that it would be utterly impossible to mature and pass so important a bill, l ite in the session. And when he did move to take it up, what time was il? At the break of day on the 4; h of March, and within "fivi or six hours," according to Senator Bell, of the close of the scfsion!

Then, as lothe logic : Mr. Atchison ulleees that he had opposed the organization of Nebraska bvcatise he feared that the slavery restriction of the Missouri Compromise would not be repealed, and conse quently lhat slaves could not be laken lo Ne braska, And thereupon Air. Atchison indig nantly exe'aims ; ''Now, t r, 1 am free to admit, at tint moment, at this hour, and for all time to come. I should oppose the organization or the settlement of that Territory, unless my constituents, and the con stituents of the whole south, ol the slave Males of the Union, could go into it upon the tame footing, with equal right! and equal privileges, carrying that peciei of property with them as other people of thit Union." But in the next breath, Mr. Atchison admits lhat the Missouri Compromise cannot be re pealed I And yet he urges, or pretends lo urge, the organization of the Nebraska Territory, without one word for "my constituents and the constituents of the whole South" who cannot take their niggert to Nebratka ! What hat be come of the magniloquent avowal of Senator Atchison t determination "At this moment, at this hour, and for all time to comer" Mr. Atchison is against Nebraska, with the Slavery restriction, "for all time lo come." Bui as ihe restriction cannot be repealed, he it for Nebraska immediately ! But this nonsense of Mr. Atchison, wat oil thrown out ot signals lo the "extreme South," what string to pull on. The Southern Senators rall:ed at ihe hint, and Bell, Rusk, Houston, Borland, and Adams of Mississippi, all went dead against Nebraska, ond made speeches and motions against il. Atchison's speech, pre tending to be for Nebraska, only put arguments into their mouths against the bill; and such all the circumstances incline ut to belive, wat Atchison's intention. The statesmanship of Atchison's speech cannot I. il to elicit observation and remark. The organization of a new Territory the initiative for a new State of the American Union a new star for the galaxy of the Republic h was inclined to oppose, be cnuse it would interfere with ihe business of a few of his constituent who live on the frontier, and rni.e "fond for uiulcs, and for oxin !"

TKZ NEW MAINE LAW. The chief object of the new law is, ns the committee intimate, to add facilities ol enforcement to the enactment of the origi nal law, rather than to add toils in tensity . Still it has been mads more efficient, and at the same time features of doubtful con stitutionality have been removed. It allows farmeis to manufacture and sell ciderin certain quantities, but furnishes no facilities for its sale in tho grog shop. It has abolished the double penalties to which the appellant to the Supreme Court was liable, and allows the same rights as in other cases of appeal. Instead of voters and residents oi town, it provides thai "three persons who are competent to be witnesses in civil suiu, residents within the county," may ei'ier (.omplaiu's. When ever un u;ilavlul sale is alleged, and a de livery uoved, it iliall not be necessary to pr:ive a payment, hui such delivery diall be sufficient evidence of sale.
