spin PIBIB88 Mil. WCUSTER'S SPEECH. Wo extract from tho N. Y. Tribune tlio following which is tlio most important por tion of Mr. Webster's spcoch at Baltimore to which wo referred last week. Tlio spoecb was reported by Mn. Henry J. Raymond assistant Editor of tlio Tribune, wlio is justly regarded as one of tlio best reporters in tlio country. M. Pkesipiht! I am sum tint I receive with pe culiar gratification this nntk of your respect for well intended efforts to serve the eountry in tho office of the Government which I havo filled. 1 give you my thanks and 1 feel especially obliged to you, sir who, I know, coma into public scents rfluctimly for do ing mn tho honor of tilling tho Chair this evening. And the occasion, Mr. President and gentlemen is tho more gratifying to me, as t havo heard you say, sir, that tho gentlemen comprising this very respectable meeting come hero actuated by no ptrtymotive, by no sinister or nblinuo view tending to blind them to important truths because t know I think I know that in the absence uf such a motive wo hate the as surance that Ibis mectingis what it purport to be a compliment loan honest purpose to serto the country, not innltendod, if we can judge correctly from the ev idence wuhuve, with a certain degree of success i nnd conscious a 1 am that, in this endeavor to ervc tho country, I have been free free from and far above all party, all local or sections! objects or purposes I need hardly say that 1 receive this as a compliment not altogether inappropriate, Mr. President and Gentleman : I scarcely know how best to return to mikn you some not unbecom ing return for this proof of your nnd regard. Hul l feel myself to be in one of the principal cities of this Union, a city distinguished for its commercial enter prise, fur its rapid career, for its patriotic character s and as I feel the piescnt moment to b.; of great inter est to the commerce of. the country nerhans I could not do boiler than t occupy the few moments which are permitted to ni", in adding some suggestions touching our commercial all nrs. It is a truth quite tnte, but not the less important, mat too great inter ests of .Society are all harmonious and united; that tho Agrinilluial interest, the Comniercinl interest, the Manufacturing interests, are all entwined, if we may sv so. around the same stem, sunnorted bv the same trunk, to he nourished together or to fado together: and he i-n fnond to neither who would itlcmpt to set up an opposition between one and another of them. This truth, hoivover eommon, is one which cannot hero be too often rcnested : b 'cause in contents of interests. - in the stnignlc fir preference by law in favor of one or against another, this general union -I may siy this cimmon destiny, is not always liinlcrstooit, or it un Ccrstoo I it is not nlwavs regarded. Wo live in a country in which tho arcatcr part of the inhabitants IhkI their sustenance in the pursuits of Agriculture : in which there are also ureal masses fed and clothed nnd housed by Manufacturing: other treat masses till the marts ot loinmcrce wnoso houses aro on the seas; and the very first proposition of the American Statesni"n is tlio essential connection btween the interests of these various persons, nnd 1 the hinh imnortmee, tint thev should al vs I c re-1 carded as essentially the same. If we loofi to the dutir I. Tint it Is not neecss ary to gu on the ides thai if wo came to an understanding with governments on tho rntes of duties, that understanding can only bo ef fected by means of a Treaty ratified by tho President anu two minis ni ino ncnuio according 10 inu uiiiim of the Constitution j because, following tho example of the government in what now sxists the arrange- meni netween ine unucu aiaies anu r.ngianu luueii ing tho colonial trado is practically to give to an un derstanding between the two governments the force of law by ordinary acts of legislation. You all know mat me present Dasis ot trauo Between ino umicu States and tho British Colonies rests on tho concur rent acts, the concurrent or conditional acts of legis lation of the two countries. Remember that the Sen nto and tho Hnii60of Representatives have passed up on tho terms of intercourse with tho Hritish Colonies, and so havo both Houses of tho British Parliament j and if the Mecuttve department enter into any nego tiation on the subject ofdutics, then in '.ho same man ner mav there bu undo terms in tho aerccmcnt that if one party pass a law providing certain duties, the other sltoti'd provide by law for equivalent duties. I mention this because! havo seen it oitcn staicn that to regulate duties by treaty would ho to deprive the House of Representatives, tho great popular branch of the Legislature, of its just authority. It is true a treaty is the law to Congress; but as the whole business of revenue, and the finances, of providing for all tho wantsof the country is peculiarly the bus iness of the Houof Representatives, I am of opin ion nnd always have been, that there should be no encroachment by tho nvocutivo power on tho Legis latureby the President and senate under tne treaty niokinL' nower ovcenl in unimnortant cases, such ns the treaty with Franco in regard to wines, nnd some others. Well, then, gentleman, if it be a constitutional mnlo of arranging the snbj'ct by means of negocia- Agriculture of a country, we find that it furnishes tion. what is therein tho present state of our rcla tions with England which ma'.cs it desirable that such nn attcmnt should be made? All of us know that the principal interests of the United States nre all under a considerable degree of depression. The enmmcrcia interest isdenrossod. and so far as I am able to perceive, the agricultural interest of both North and Pouthis equally depressed, If I look at the price current in the grain-growing States of the vvcstorin the plantation stales oi tne nouin, l per ceivo nmin a ureal denrcssion and no great encour agement to activity and emulation. What is there in our condition whai is thero in the intercourse be tween tho two c iiiutries, to justify nn attempt at the arrangement I have mentioned t Well, gentlemen, on this subject I speak without any authority. It is not for me to assume to speak of sentiments of persons abroad upon this subject. Hut it is true tint tho opinion Ins become somewhat current that with Rnglaml an arrangement niiohtbe made fivorablc to our great agricultural interest. That agreement must of conrc be founded on nn adequate consideration. Hut as to theobiccts nf the agreement which it is supposed may ho f ivornble to the United States, I may mention the admission intt Unglnnd for consumption at lower rates of duty of snernl of our large agricultural products, ft Ins been snnnoscd. fore.Taninle. tint I'niland may be induced to make important reductions in her duties on tobacco. I confiss I havo never been able to see why not. Tho tobacco duty in England is a mere nntterof revenue. Thero is no collateral or ulterior object in it. The question, therefore, in the minds of linglish Slatesm.n as it seems to mo can oniy nc whether a reduction of the duty will diminish the nggrrgKe of revenue. We all know that it often in creases tins agaregate nnd in regard to thisnrticleif a reduction nf duty one-half should an ment minor l.lr :1 : -l r ..1 t.nn,fit tl,n mransnf sustenance In human leinjs; but it does rnlil, ,,....,,, It is supposed, too, that tho duty on nco may un; not furnish the means nfehenn anil comfortable chilli ing. What llin will be the fortune of Agriculture if there is no demand for its surplus in the consumption of masses, Mantif ictiinng or Commercial, without Agriculture 1 Tho Manufacturing mti rest what would become nf it, if thero were no consumers of mantif iclurcd articles ami commercial artie'es ! There must be comiiioilnies to be transported; ex changes to be accomplish' d, brforc tlio destined trans porters or the ng. nts employed in exchanges can find suppott or employ. .Mr Presiimt and Oomlemcn Allow moon this occasion to express w h it I feel to b undeniable that it is to the commercial interests, it is to tliensso anion, and sphit and entcrpri.so of the commercial citizens of the co'intiy that is to ba attributed in the first place the orL'ina'l movement in fnor of these great works of internal improvements now so ex tended all over tho I ind. Tins results'ccrtoinly from natural causes. Tho capital is in this class: the means, the stimulus are with ibis class. Where were tho canils and the railroads and oil tho sreit works which distinguish modem times, but for tho activity of the cuininercial c'asscsl And whoreis the indi vidual treasure poured out like water, not on the ground of a rich return of interest in dividends, but in the advancement of business and tho general accom modation of society 1 I.omr, long since hallu- mag nificent enterprise been encaged in, and this railroad worthy of Rome when Augustus stood at the head of K'npiro worthy nf llouaparte, as great in peace she was in war ivorthy nf any civrnment and any IviropMii piwer, by which shoul. I be connected the waters of the Chosnpe ike and of the Ohio river; a work which proposes, to surmount some rideos of lha Allcglnnies, to penetrate others, to proceed from tide water by steam piw-r on land till tho power of steam on land shall y tel. I to the piwer of steam on tho water, and connect the great Valley nf tho West with the Great Oce in that lies aloiiL' our Eastern bor der, is in process of completion. The prosperity the com ii"rce of a co miry iho l a connected with individual hippincss, with the growth of cities, with tho revenue of a country I may add, and as connected with all works of interim! improvement which con nect by r many ties the North and South, the East ami tho West, the prosperity of this commerce is one of the highest anJ must important eonsideiations which could enrage the attention of all public men and of all intelligent citizens. I miy be permitted to stale that we hear allaround us, in every part of tho country, that thero exists a conviction of lins truth. Wo are now at tho end, I am incorieci in that expression, for wo havo not I trust re iche.1 the end, I was about to say we are now at tho end nf a universal peace of 25 years ; I meant to say that wo arc now at a point of time when 2" vears of universal peace hid elapsed. Du- jing that period all civilized nations havo been turning their thuuifhts from war to neace, They have given their attention to their own im provement, to ihcadvanceincntof their own interests, B'Ticidtural. commercial, or inanuf.ieturing; so that while there is not now a contest about the power of any nation, there is a evercand well maintained con troversv on many sides in reirard to the progress of arts, the furtherance of lha pursuits and products of labor, and tho general improvement of all rnnl.H of society, in short, we hvo in an nge u is our goon fortune to hvo in an age in which government and individuals are flunking more ot tienentiing tiicm selves than of destr. vinir or annoying their enemies This appears to me, geuilemen, to have led to a very general teiliug, not couiincd to this country rmi per vsliii" 2ieit nart of Europe, of this kind. Men, nubhc and Drivatu men. have taken a stroiiz opinion that the interests of the prinripal nations of the leirld may be maJe mbjicts of treaty stipul id'on I mean tho com nercial interests, to n greater extent than is yet granted. It isfound to bun common sub ject of discussion in the two houses of Parliament, in the Chambers of France, in our own Halls ofLciris- lat'on, and through the whole commercial world. It seems to have its origin in the idea, ils"lf n just one that if a nation seeks its own intt rests that of Rev nue or those inlercats called I'roUHire interests, by a regulation of duties, it is wise, before unions resort to indenonilenl leL'islation with a tiewon the part of one to countervail the acts of another, to consider if it be not inoru cxnedient for the narlic to attempt to come to an understandine without the aid of this what we may call almost hostilt legi.slat on. The commercial inlertsts of nations arcalT'cledinourday almost in every thin?, by two considerations : litre nut and the Encouragement and Production nml Pro tection of the Homo Industry of tho country. These two may be of various importance soinelimes one BPPermodiaiia sometimes me oilier, nut mi nauou miliar nt tho Dre&eut moment to be mnnifc&tin: treat degree of ncutenssin ihe perception of what their mteiest is; whether in the financial or indus trial sceno of operations. Wu know that between F.ngland and Hussia there Ins lately beenn commer cial treaty Ibrm'd, not very important, I think. We know attempts have been made to accompli. li a treaty between Kntrland and Portugul; but they hate not succeeded. Wu know that n recent attempt has been made, in a case very important to us, or which in iis res ills may bi nf impoilanretonur Commerce, to form a couiinerci.il treaty between England and Brazil. The fnhire of fins may inspire a doubt ns to the practicability of this regulation of commerce by treatv stipulation. I do not mean to speak now with much confidence or distinctness on t lint subject. But I am nf opinion that with respect to ns here in America ihe experiment is worth the trial, But at the samo lime it is to be remembered that nn too san guine confideiiceshould be entertained as to the result ; because, pending the existence of such a confidence and before the results hate been attained, there may bd a stagnation in commercial ufiYtrs produced by that yery concern. The tiarliculnr nointinourown forriirn relations nf eommerciil interest, which in this regard lias latterly attrneted most attention i between tho United Sinus and England; and this in two respects In the first place tlieduties now tobe imposed upon either sideon products subjeefsof dirfct importation; nnd ne.xt,the fate of intercourse between the United Slates, nnd the Coloninl possessions of England on Ibis Conti nentnnd the West Indies. Tho direct tradebettveen us and England is formed upon tho real principle nt reciprocity, nnd I do not know there is much differ ence in favor of either; it seerns to be fair, equal and lust. Tho trade between the United Stan sand British Cdonies, on the continent nnd in the West Indies' is of nntn a different character. But I do not propose now to go into that matter, But with regard to the direct intercourse between us and Emrland. many wishes have been expressed, and the opinion hnB been strongly rntertniner" in favor of nnnf tempt to settle tne dunes ny treaty or agreement : 1 say, gentlemen.'the arrangement of aTariffdiiliesby nnreemcnt, and I use tbn term by design. The Con- limii'in nf ihe United Slates leaves to Coneress lha irreal business nf levying duties for Ihe support of O.ittiininent It seems especially to ne mnde tho du ir of the House nf Repre-rutalivcs lo originate all dcrgn a material and beneficial change. And this is an nrliclo now as much depressed as tiny other. 'I lion anain, is tins great product of our ow n in the United States .Uu're, or, as it is called, Indian Corn. I hate not heard a suggestion from any quarter that England would be inclined to a modification of her Corn I.ntys, properly so called I mean her duties on Wheat and Flour. But it has been suggested I know not with how much plausibility and I beg it may he received as merely a suggestion of my own, I havo heard it suggested that'in regard to iiiia ar ticle of wholesome and cheap food, England might Isi induced to place upon its importation a low and fixed raleof duty. Now it is at least worth inquiring what will bo tlio value of this admission. Corn is the great Grain product of the United States. The statistical tables show that five bushels of Indian Com are raised in tho United States for every one of Wheat; and tho surplus of this article beyond the wants of the consumer at home, even if it were but small surnhis. if it could bo introduced at lower rates of duty, would make a wido difference in the ggrc2iie. I am aware rentlemcn. (and many nf von know all this subject better than I do,) thai this is nn nrticlo of heavy freight ; and yet it is brought irom .tiaryiam: nd Virginia nnd Carolina to Boston and even to Maine. The question is whether it would not be worth whi e to ontertn n inn nurnose, to irv ine ex periment, of arranging with England for a diminution nf iheduiv unon this nrliclc. In considcrinL' it. every bodv asks what is the omit rro mo what is the eninvalent for this concession 1 Kir what induce ment mav wo hope that even this concession may be nlilninml 1 Undoubtedly, undoubtedly, the only in ducement wo could bold out to Ensland would he n modification of the Tariffof the United States. This ironosition may seem unwise, because the larillis not for Hev(nueniilv,butfor Protection also; and how both oreilhcr of these objects could bo hrmly main tainsd under any modification of tho T.irifl, is a ques lion of great delicacy and great difficulty, .uy ex perience has not iritcn me clear knowledge of it, but this I do know that by making the Tnrifl'stable nnd firm, we shall render it healthful and judicious, if by nny operation Mint should unite the interests nndopin ions of all narts of the country, we can place Ihe pro tection of American Industry and American Labor on a permanent lonnuiiiioii, uiui is a iiiucn neuu imiivr rani co is uerai o o i liiu n c ure'ree iu wiueii i nine' ion may Pi extended.

MR. GLADSTONE. 1 By the way, there is tlio rising hopo of tho Con scr talives, and PcePa right arm William Ewart Glad' stone, Vice President of tho Board of Trade nnd Mas terof the Mint. 'That young man t what a disappointment I In person he is of a good stature, anil, like Stanley, has n pretty, good natured, rather pouting mouth, while the upper part of tho face, like Stanley's has a 'knit ted,' if not a frowning aspect. But wh.it disappoints me most is the smnllncsj of the head. Under Stan ley's cnrclcss locks, you can see hidden a good solid mass of forehead ; but this noted young man- this philosophic worker out of church principles I want for him capacious skull and breadth of face. Can such a small head carry all ho knows 7 ' Wo must take men as they are. anil not as wo im aginc them. The head is small but it is well shaped. You notice tint tho upper part of the faco rather ex presses severity; and I am told that old Gladstone, and the family generally, havo lieen noted in Liver pool for what is callodl a ' crusty' temperament.

We attended on Tuesday last the funeral of a most eminent lady, whoso death has caused many a heart to bleed, and which was invested by the circumstances under which it occurred with peculiar solemnity. A argo assemblage was present on the occasion, and a silence, only exceeded by that of the rave, pervaded the whole house. Just at this moment, when the heavinc of each bosom was subdued, when the Minister of God was about to break tho doath-liko silence, an old family clock, which stood in a corner of the room and was hidden from view by the white drapery that shrouded it, atrtick out in tones of awful distinctness the passing hour. The effect was electrical. 7'here was a genera! sensation and movement, as if each individual present felt how striking a moral lesson was convoyed by that simple incident, it was a sermon within itself.

Long will that day be remembered among us for tho strange spcctaclo it presented of a sober celebration of" Independence." And wo trust that we may bo permitted to live its scenes over again, on many a coming fourth. MORE TYLERIZATION. C. G. Eastman, the brilliant poet, learned scholar, accomplished gentleman, and dis interested patriot, who presides over the "Spirit of the Age" at Woodstock, has so far overcome his lato horror of office holding (manifested toward certain Whig incumbents) as to have been prevailed on, doubtless not without importunate and pertinacious en treaties, to burdon himself with the cares of the Post Office at that place. Thus is John Tyler, regardless of party predilections and political bias, sedulously seeking to fill all tho offices of tho country, with the choi cest specimens of its great and good men. Flinging behind him tho unworlhy motives and base desires of a partizan, he is disarm ing criticism by the gradual but marked im provement in tho character of his appoint-ments.-Washington Irving to Spain-Edward Everett to England, nnd Caleb Gainnge Eastman to the Post Office at Woodstock ! ! !

MR. VAN BUREN'S OPINION BANKRUPT LAW. On the 13th of August, 1840, a let was Btiurcsscti to Mr. Van Huron, by Mcssr a. u. Maniiciu, win. 11. brasher, and oth- pr. ritl'.nns OI lOtV lnil. iiilnrrnnulinrr , ----- 1 .-b......B him as to his opinions with reference to a general Bankrupt Law. Extracts from his reply dated Washington, Sept. 14, 1840, wo present below from which it will ap pear that, notwithstanding all tho clamor of tho Loco Focos against this mcasuro, Van Burcn is in favor of a Bankrupt Lav? of tho most odious kind, restricted in its oper ation to " bankers and traders." " The subiect. as now nendinr h,fnrf. iIia ,fumt and as embraced in your questions, presents iueif in several points of view. " irf, As to a ucncrai isanxrupt Law, apphcabli to bankers nnd traders only. , Cxond, As to the propnety of subjecting corpori tions to its operation; and Third, As to (he propriety of embracing volunts rily, or involantarily, all other classes within itspro vision. It is a rule, tho sacred observance of which is in dispensable to tho well-being of Society, that Oov ernmcnt should never interfere trith private contract) even when the authority to do so is conferred by ths Constitution, except upon the ground of evident public necessity and then with a degree of caution and circumspection which shall guard in an effectual manner against fraud and injustice. That occasion! may arise when those who Inve the rightful power to interfere, may do so, and are required to do so, by a regard for the best interests of the community, Tiir.nE c.tN nr. so boudt. 1 thought there was occa sion for such interference in 1S27, onti gate my tot for a general Ilnnkrupt Law, applicable to bankers ana traders, classes wtncli all must agree, were in tended to bo embraced by the clause of the constitu tion relating to this object. An occasion of at least equal urgency for such a law exists at this time. Th ( embarrassments caused by the pernicious expansion ' 01 ino currency, anu 1110 consequent facilities or credit and cash enterprises, which have unfortunately characterized the last few years, are such as to render an interference of this kind greatly conducite, tr nor oLUTr.LY necessahy to the la-rate good.

"It would constitute no objection with me, if cor porations were, in proper form, embraced by the pro visions of such a bill." " Objections to tho power of Congress to pats a voluntary bankrupt law applicable 10 all classes of debtors, have been principally founded on Ihe follow ng considerations." Following in this connection he enu merates the points of argument both for and against it, which wo of courso omit a foreign to the illustration of his own posi tion. - " The evils of a Bankrupt Law, with such extended range, would, it is justly to bo feared, more than counterbalance the benefits it might otherwise pro duce. I am not aware that any government has deemed it ttiseor safe to extend the operations of bankrupt law, to all these classes of its citizens or subjects. I am well aware thnt these latter objec tions are sought to be obviated by making the opera tions of this part of the law voluntary only. Uut it well deserves to be remembered, that such a law would be but the entering edge the first move ment of Congress in a new direction, under a gener al power, and no one can tell what might be lha next." Thus it is apparent that Mr. Van Buron is for a worse Bankrupt Law than that which passed Congress. Ho is for a " gen eral Bankrupt Law, applicable to Banker and traders" (embracing of course, mer chants, factors, and many other classes of private citizens") including " banking in corporations." But excluding other clastet of citizens, equally meritorious, such at farmers, mechanics, &c, from its opera lions. Ho is opposed to oxtending tho law to " all classes of debtors," but agrees to embrace a few favored and generally mon eyed classes, to tho exclusion of all small debtors. This odious distinction he seemi to wish to palliate, when he intimates that were the law, ns applicable to farmers, me chanics, and other small debtors, made " voluntary only," (the precise condition of the law passed) it would be unobjection able, only as it might prove an entering wedge" to something worse hereafter. But it must be allowed that he no wiicrc distinct ly approves such an cxtention of tho law ta " all classes." The extent of his wishes ht. general Bankrupt Law, applicable to bankers and traders."
