l!,.., .. nJ Imlilnn. Tl took nlaco. ns nil know, iii Annapolis, in May of tlio 6nmo vcor; hut it wos thinly iitlcmlcil, tinil its niomlci. vory wisely, adopted measure to bring nhuiit n fuller nnil more gcnorttl cun vunlion. Their loiter to the Stales on thin occasion is Fit 1 1 of inRtruction. It shows their sense of the unfortunate cnndi ' tion of tho country In their meditations on the subject, they saw tho extent lo which mo commercial power mui nui-u Ban v extend, "he f atrncit v ol New .lor Bey had led her. in agreeing to the original proportion ol V irguna, to enlarge mo oo jeet of tho appointment of commissioners so as to embrace not only commercial reg illations, but other immrlanl mutters. This suggestion the commissioners adopted, bo tlmv ilininrlit. ns thov Inform ih 'that tho newer of regulating: trade is of such comprehensive extent, mid will enter so In r into the ironcral system ol the l'od cral Government, that to give it efficacy, nnd to obviate miction nod doubts con corning its preciso yilnro nnd limits, might rcnnire a correspondent niiiutmMit ot tit li cr parts of tho Federal system." Merc you see, sir. that oilier power, mch ns are now in the Constitution, were expected to branch out of tho neccasary coinuiercia power; nnd, therefore, the 1c tor of tho commissioners concludes with recommend. inu a general convention "to take into con Fiderntion the whale situation of the United Stala, nnd to devise snob further provi ions ns should appear necessary to render tho Constitution of the Federal Govern mont adequate to the exigencies of the Union." The result of that convention was tho present Constitution. And vet, in the inid-t. of nil this flood of light, respecting it original objects and purposes, and with nil the adequate powers which it confers, we abandon tiie commerce of the country, wc betray its interests, wo turn ourselves nway from its most crving necessities Sir, it will bo n fact, stamped in deep nnd dark lines upon our nnnals ; il will h truth, which in all time can never be denied or evaded, that if this Constitution shall not, now nnil hereafter, ho so administered ns to maintain a uniform svstcm in nil mat tors of trade; if it shall not protect nnd regulate tho commerce of the country, in nil its groat interests, in its foreign inter course, in its domestic intercourse, in it? navigation, m its currency, in every thing which fairly belongs to the whole idea of commerce, either as an end, an agent, or nn instrument, then that Constitution will have failed, utterly failed to accomplish the precise, distinct, original object, in which it had its being. In matters of trade, wc were no longer to bo Georgians, Virginians, Pi'nrisylvani nns. or Massachusetts men. We were to have but one commerce, nnd that tho com morcc of the United States. There were not to bo soparato flags, waving over sep arate commercial system. There was to bo one flag, tho n rr.unmus unum; and townrd that was to be that rally of united interests nnd affections, which cur fathers bnd so earnestly invoked. Mr. President, this unity of commercial regulation is, in my opinion, indispensable to the safely of the union of the State, t hcmscl vcs. In peace it is its strongest tie. 1 care not, sir, on what side, or in which of its branches, it may be attacked. Every eucccssful attack upon it, made anywhere, weakens the whole, and rendors the next nsnult easier and more dangerous. Any denial of its just power is an attack upon it. Wc attack it, most fiercely attack it, when ever wc say wc will not exercise the pow crs which it enjoins. If the Court had yielded to the pretensions of respectable States upon the subject of steutn naviga tion, and to the retaliatory proceedings of other States; if retreat ond excuse, and disavowal of power had been prevailing eentimcnts then, in what condition, nt this moment, let me nsk, would the steam nav igation of the country be found? To u. fir, to us, his countryman, lo us, who feel eo much admiration for his genius nnd so much gratitude for his services. Fulton would have lived almost in vain. State grants and Stnto exclusions would have covered over all our waters. Sir, it is in the nature of such thing that tho first violation, or tho first depar ture from truo principles, draws more im portant violations or departures after it; nnd the first -tirrender of just authority will be followed by others more to be deplored. If commerce bo n unit, to break it in one part, is to decree its ultimoto dismember ment in all. If there be made a first chasm, though it bo small, through that tho whole wild ocean will pour in, and we may then throw no embankments in vain. Sir, tho spirit of union is particularly lia blc to temptation and seduction, in mo mcnts of peace and prosperity. In war,: this spirit is strengthened by a sense-ol common danger, ami by a thousand recol lections of ancient efforts and ancient glory in a common cause. In the calnu of a long peace, nnd tho absence of all apparent causes of alarm, things near gain no nscou d'ency over things remote. Local interest nnd feelings overshadow national senti ments. Our attention, our regard, nnd our attachment, nre every moment solicit ed lo whnl touches us closest, and wo fee) lss and less the attraction of a distant orb Such tendencies, wc arc bound by true patriotism, and by our love of union, to re sist. This is our duty ; and tho moment, in my judgment, has arrived when that du ty is summoned lo action. Wo hear, every day, sentiments and arguments, which would become n meeting of envoys, em ployed by soparato Governments, tnoro than they become the common legislature of a united country. Constant appeals are made to local interests, to gcogrnplncal dk tinclions, and to tho policy and tho piiilo of particular States. It would sometimes appear that it was, or ns if it were, a set tled purpose to convince the Pooplo that our Union is nothing but a jumblo of differ cut and discordant interests, which must, ere long, be all returned to thoir original atato of soparato existence ; as if, thoreforo, it was of no great value while it should last, and was not likely to la&t long. Tho process of disintegration begins, by urging the fact of different in terests. (Sir, is not the end obvious, t0 which all this leads us ? Who docs not see that, if convictions ol this uinu tauo possession of the public mind, our Union can horenfter bo nothing, while it remains, but a con- I tinxinn without. Iinrmnnv ; n linnil wittinlll ! affection ; n thratrc fur llio angry contest of local fooling, local objects, "nnd local loHou.-tosr J'jvun wImiq it. continues to exist, in name, it may, by those menus, be come nothing but the more form of n united Government. My children, nnd the chil dren ofthoso who sit around me, may meet, pcrlinp., in this Chamber, in the next gen eration ; hut if tendonctc, now but too ob vious, bo not checked, they will moot ns strangers and nliens. They will feel no sense ofcommon interest, or common conn try ; they will cherish no common object of patriotic love. If tho smite rfaxon lan guage shall fall from their lip, it may he thn chief proof that I hey belong to the same nntion. Its vital principle exhausted and gone, its power of doing good tannin nteil, productive only of strife and conten tion, nnd no longer sustained bv a sense of common interest, the Union itself must ul tini.iiely fall, dishonored nnd unlnmenird. Tiie honorable member from Carolina hiniclf. habitually indulges in charges of usurpation nnd oppression ngninst tho Gov eminent of his country. Ho daily denoun cos its important incisure, in the language in which our Revolutionary Intliels spoke of the oppressions of thu mother country. Not merely against Executive usurpation, either real or supposed, docs he utter these sentiments, but against laws of Congress laws passed by large majorities, laws sanc tioned, for a course of years, by tho People. Those laws ho procluim. every hour, to he but a series of nets of oppression. He peak ofihein as if it were nn admitted fact, that such is thci'" truo charnctcr I Ins is the language which he utters. these the sentiments lie expresses, to the rising feneration around him. Are they sentiments and language which are likclv to inspire our children with the love of nn ton, to enlarge their patriotism, or to tench them, and to mike them feel, that their destiny has made them common citizen of one great and glorious republic? A pr in cilia 1 object, in his late political movemonts the gentleman himself tell us, wn to unite Hie entire South: and atro'iist whom, o against what, docs he wish to unit.-" the on tire South?

While the gentleman thus wisho lo unite tho en tire South, I pray to know, sir, if he expect.- me to turn toward the polar-star, and, act ing on trie same principle, to uticr n ory of Rally! to tiie whole North ? Heaven for bid! To the day of my death, nei'hcr he nor others shall hear such a cry from me. Finallv, thn honorable member declares that ho shall now march off. under tho ban nor of Slate Right!

We have been struggling to maintain I lie liber ty nnd to restore tho prosperity of the country; wo have made these struggle-! here, in the national councils, with tho old flag, tho truo American flag, the Eagle, and tho Stars and Stripes, waving over the Chamber in which we sit. Ho now tell us, however, that he marches ofF under the State-rights banner ! Let him go. I remain. I am, where I ever have been, and ever mean to be.

Yes, sir, I would act as if our fathers, who formed it for us, and who be queathed it to us, were looking on us as it I could sec their venerable form, bending down to behold us, from the abode above. I would act, too. sir, as if that long lino of posterity were also viewing, whoso eye is hereafter to scrutinize our conduct. Standing thus, as in the full gaze of our ancestors, and our posterity, having rcceiv. cd this inheritance from the former, to be transmitted to the latter, and leeling, that if I am born for any good, in mv day and generation, it is for the good of the whole country, no local policy, or local feeling, no temporary impulse, shall induce me In yield my foothold on the Constitution and the Union.

The following account of the manner in which the body of Napoleon was made ready for tho tomb, will bo new, wo sus pect, to many of our readers, if not to all ; at least wu have never met with it before.

The body of tho late Gennrnl Napoleon Huonaparto, in full dress, was deposited in a tin coflin, which was I lined with wllito fiilk Mid cotton His cocked lint was laid across Ins thighs, nnil on tho loft breast of hi coat was o gold star and cross, and several other medals of tho Fame metal; several pieces of com, ol various sizes and diflerent value, were also put into the coffin.

Helena Artillery. ' CO.NGKHSS. In the Senate, Mr. King of Ala. some timo since offered a resolution for an ad journment on the -1111 of June. He seems to have become frightened at finding the Whigs all in favor of it, and voted to put his own resolution to sleep on the table, where it now lies we presume, pernm ncntly. For our part, wo regret this, and can fc-co no good that Congress will be likely to do by sitting even so long as the period indicated. Il would be better for tho country if they would but pa.3 tho Appropriation Hills and adjourn next wool Tho principal achievement of the Senate for n week past is the passage of Mr Grundy's bill to punish the reissue of the notes of the late United States Dank char tered by Congress by the United States Hank of Pennsylvania. The vote stood leas 27, Niys 14. The penalty imposed on such isuc is only a fine of ten thou-and dollars and imprisonmnnt from one to ten yours inr eacn oikiicc : Jiaiiier severe upon Messrs. Diddle &. Co. Should this act pass tho House also, tho Supreme Court will doubtless bo called to pas upon Us constitutionalitv, of which there urc grave doubts. Should the law bo pronoun, ccd valid, and enforced, tho notes will depreciate, and the Dank may, if it choose, make a pretty saving by buying them in ul a discount, at distant places. Il seems to us the true remedy for the grievance com plained of is for those who distrust or dis like, these notes to refuse them. (We are very glad to get them, though they nre here nt a discount ; nod we see that at Mr. Grundy's place of residence Nashville they nre 19 per cent, above par. J Who ever now takes these notes, takes Ihrnn on the faith and credit of the new Dank; if that is deemed insufficient, relu'so them. Wo see no necessity for fire and faggot, and distrust tho policy. The Cumberland Road Dill has passed the House. A motion to lay it on the table was lost: Yeas 03, Nays 109. On the final passage, the vote stood Yeas 90, Nays no. On Saturday last, the Committee on the late Duel made its Report on that unhappy nfnir. The majority consider the course of Mossrs. Graves and Wi-c highly censu rablethat of Mr. Jones (Cilloy'd second) nlso censurable, but in n less degree and recommend that Mr. Graves be expelled from the House. They declare also that James Watson Webb has been guilty cf a breach of the privileges of the House. A bare majority of the Committee concur in this Report three members dissenting, and presenting two counter reports. Here is work cut out for a month's most unpro fitable and irritating discussion, calculated only to inflame the passions and deepen the prejudices of thousands out of Congress, to no salutary end. Mr. Cambrcleng has withdrawn his two Treasury Note Dills from tho Committee of tho Wole, and introduced a new bill, merely giving the President nnd Secretary of tlio Treasury power to issue new Treas n ry Notes in place of thoso cancelled. It is very brief and general in its terms. In the House on Monday, the old subject of our difforcnen with Mexico camo up on a report from the State Department on what is called the 'late Mexican outrage,' (firing on a U. States steamboat coming out of a Texas port, by a Mexican block, tiding squadron. In reply to a suggestion from Mr. Adams, Mr. Howard, Chairman of tho Comuiiiteo on Foreign Affairs, slated that ncgnciations arc now pending bat ween tho United States and Mexico, with every prospect of an amicablo ar rangement. We hope this may prove true, nnd that there is no Texas intrigue- at tho bottom of it. On Tuesday, Mr. Preston addressed the Senate in a very able and eloquent argu ment in favor of the annexation of Texas to the Union. His speech is said to have been one of tho most forcible that has been mndu this session. On Wednesday, tho IIouso spent the wholu day in n debate on the motion to print the Report of the Committee on the late Duel, being tlio fourth day time un- profitably wasted. It was thought the question would bo taken on Thursday. In tho Senate, the day (Wednesday) was devoted to a bill providing for a Board of Commissioners to nudit Privato Claims. No decision.--JVeio Yorker. ATLANTIC STEAM NAVIGATION. Tho nrrival of tho two British steam boats, the Siriut and tho Great Western, has strongly attracted the public attention lo the subject of Atlantic slcani navigation, and to Hie establishment of regular lines of steamers between thi country nnd Europe. Steamboats were first successfully em ployed in the business of river navigntion. Tho Hudson and the Mississippi wore the si renin upon which boats impelled by steam first came into competition with the more ancient water craft. Day nnd arms of the sen wore next successfully naviga ted; and of late for many of the purposes of a coasting navigation, steamboats have been able successfully to compete with vessels impelled by sails. Wo have lines of boats along the const, from Dnngor lo Savannah; and the trip between N. York and Charleston is regularly and successful ly made. In Europe the employment of steamboats in sea navigntion is more extensive than with ih, and there arc regular lines of boats along the coast of that continent, from St. Petersburg to Constantinople. Hut there remains yet one step lo be taken. In former years, steamboats hive occasionally traversed thu Atlantic, nnd tho Indian oceans ; but these experiments have not been encouraging, and regular oceanic navigation by steam, is a thing that remains to bo accomplished. For some tune past, the subject of nn intercourse by sloam, between Great Dri lain nnu tuts country, nas uecu a maucr ni great interest to the British mercantile community. Il usually happens that new undertakings of this sort nre set on foot by llio incorisn. wnnc me innovation is ret-is-tod and ridiculed by tho practical men. The present case however is different. .Most of the scientific men have expressed opinions unfavorable lo the enterprise. Dr Lardtier has undertaken lo demon! rate that it is impossible to navigate ihe A1 lati no by t-leam to any advantage ; nnd lie hn been seconded by the author of n very elaborate article upon the subject. In n late number of the Edinburg Review, and by many others. The argument is, that the amount of coal ncccs-ary for tho voyage, would more than fill the entire vessel, leaving no room for freight or passengers; and that thu nverngo length of the passnjro would bo very li'tle short of the average passage by the packets, so that nothing of consequence would be gained even in point ol time. There arc several other minor objections. The results of tho two experiments already tried, so fur as they go, have cer tainly n tendency to provu that the objec tions of Dr. Lardnor aro unfounded. The Sirius made the passage from Cork in ltJ days. She encountered much rough weather. Her stock of coal was -100 tons, and the consumed at the rate of about 20 tons per day. When she arrived, she had but two day.-.' supply on hand. This, to be sure, is running pretty close. A heavy storm might have delayed her for severnl days longer, winch would not havo been oil her convenient or agreeable. She is said to have stood the rough weather cx trctnelv well. But if the result, of thi experiment is not perfectly satisfactory, we must recol. leel that the Sirius is not one of thoso new nnd superior boats built on purpose for thi enterprise. sUc wns built to run between London nnd Cork in which bu-iness tdie has answered well, and has been for some time eninloyed Her tonnage is about 700, and her engines 3-20 horse power. But whatever may be thought of the uccess of the Sirius, and her capability to be u-ed as nn Atlnntie tonni packet, the voyage of the Great Western, so far as one instance can go, seems to put the success of i ho enterprise beyond question. The Great Western is a new boat, of a class superior to any thing hitherto known, nnd built nn purpose for ocenmc naviga tion. She has a burden of 13 10 Ion ; her longth is 2.1!) feet. Sho has four boilers, estimated to weigh with the water in them, ISO tons, and a stowing room capable of containing in iron boxes, nearly 900 tons of coal. As tin coal is cnnsuincd these iron boxes arc filled with water, so preserve the trim of tho vessel. She ha two engine., each of 225 horso power, and weighing 290 tons. Deducting Ihe weight of boilers, engines nnd coal, there will .-till remain a space of about 170 Ions for goods and passengers. She has four low maMs, riL'geil somewhat in schooner style, nnd able to add considerably on occasion lo her speed. Her foro cabin islG feet long, her ,-taic cabin !!2 feet, nut! in both cabins together llietc are berths for MB passeu. gors. She was expected to accomplish the passage out from Bristol, under average circumstances, in fifteen day, and the pns snga home in twelve days. Thus far bhe ha fulfilled or nearly so, thoso expectations. Her voyage from Bristol wa accomplished in fifteen days, though perhaps Ihe favora ble circumstances of tho pillage wero somewhat beyond tho average. She made nlmo-t a straight line of il across the At lnntie. The weather wns good: but the sen was rough, and tho wind gcnornlly ahead. She had so little motion that it was not necessary lo put battens on the table., und only once was there motion enough to up.ct lite cups nnd saucers. She took in GOO tons of coal, of which Homo 200, equal to seven days supply, were rctnniiiiug nt the lima of her arrival. Her daily consumption of coal appears to have been about 2d or 27 tons. The experiment of Atlantic steam navi galion will now either be carried into suc cessful operation or its impracticability will bo fully proved. For be.-tdes the Grent Western, thero is still another bont, the Victoria, now filling out in London, for this eitlerprifO. Shu exceeds tho Drbtol bont in size, being tint less than 1 1100 tons burden. Sho has two engines of 250 horse power each. The calculation is that sho will tako out 500 ptissciigurt. of diflerent clnsecs, nnd 1000 tons of measurement goods. This calculation ubout the goods. seems to bo rather extravagant. It is upon passengers that these boats must principally rely for support. Supposing tho GOO pas 80iigersto average twenty pound, passage money, that would give go0,000 a trip, which might be supposed to cover 'he ex penses even of such a boat as I lie Victoria, and to give a profit bestdo. Boston Atlas. New York, Arntr, 21. Tho Steam Ship performance is nil' the talk of the city. Thousands and thousands rushed to tho Battery yesterday afternoon, as soon as the long low black volumo of smoke from the Great Western was telcgruphed as nfTtho Hook, for the smoke was seen long before the hull. The Forts dtschar ged their artillery ns she swept into the harbor; nnd tho crowds on shorn, wrnpt in astonishment, ruin nded mo of Frving's de scription of the nmaz"tiicnt of the native when thu little caravel of Po'n, with Christopher Columbus on board, first hove in sight of Ilispnniola. The great Wes tern is, indeed, n monster, being by far the largest steamboat ever in our water-, and our boats all dwindle into insignificance beside her. The mob yesterday evening were ravenous lo ret on board of her. The little British middies had hard work to keep ofl'tlie boys, and John Hull got some hearty curses from some of I hem because John would not permit Brother Jonathan's youngsters to roam at largo about tho monster. Indeed, so much ex citement wns created at last, that a con siderablc political capital might hnvo been mado out of the aff.iir, if the Administra tion newspaper prcs here had the faculty the Globe hn in making monsters, for il would have Globe logic to reaon--lhis is a Diddle monster that the Baring have sent out, &c. and, therefore, Democrats were in danger, tec. &.c John Doll's boys were under admirable discipline nnd they took nil the hard word Joiinihno ooys gave tliem, without a reply. It nnj J ill feeling could thus be created, it will nil . bo atoned for by the hearty nnd generous ; enthusiasm with which l ho whole cuv, n a city, and the Corporation, as it organ. nre about to welcome, to-day, in form, the great event ol tho b'-giiining of a Packet A'lnntic Oc an steam navigation.

The Investigating Committee appointed by the IJouso of Representatives to take testimony as to thu facts attending the duel which resulted in tho death of Mr. Ciltey havo undo, no less than three reports. The Chairman has made otto for the majority, two other members have presented u report from themselves as the minority, one other, the remaing member, dissenting from the views of both, ha. made a report "on his own hook'l being us tho New York Gazette wittily expresses it, the minority of the iniiwity. The IIouso refuse to print tlio Comninteo'6 report, nnd it was hud upon llio luble. The nclton recommended by thi report was the expulsion of Mr. Grnves and the censure of .Messrs. Jones and Wise the seconds, nnd this on the ground of hav mg cnminiited a breach of privilege. As H happens that Mr. Grnves fought Mr. Cilley not for what ho said in the House, but lor an implied imputation cast else where upon tho challenger's veracity, wo do not see by whai rule of construction the meeting ami its results can bo tortured in'o a breach of privilege for n member to titter talehood or plunder, nt all tunes nnd in all places, without being called to account for the license of his longuo. There is no probability however I lint lite recommendation of iho Conimiltoo will bo acted on in the House, nor tho slightest danger that Mr. Graves will bo expelled. If such an extreme measure wore resorted to it would bo probably immediately ren dercd a nullity, by tho return of Mr Gravos ro elected by his present constituents. A Sanguinahv Scene in Kentucky-.
