The troubles or the Administration arc Ircin uing to be so numerous and complicated, that its organ lias been cnnipcllril to come down from Itetoneof bravado, and tall; to the Ueprcsenta lives of the people, as if they had some right to think and act for themselves. Mr. Preston King's bill, reviving the Wilmot proviso against the admission of the proposed Mexican conquests with Slavery in them, was the sign which the Executive organ rightly in terpreted as indicative of the intention of the North on that subject. I he day after Mr. King s bill was introduced, the Union came out with one of the most doleful jeremiads in which its ante diluvian editor ever indulged, and his beseech ing prayers to all the Representatives to forbear from prcslngllie " delicate question, were real ly touching. lie was conninined to set out the difficulties and griefs in which his master had become involved by his nefarious Executive war, and ho appealed with tears in his eyes, to the " patriotism," and " sterling, unvvaveringdi inocracy " of all people, to forget every tiling but the President's war, and thon whom he had made the public enemies. As far as was and is necessary to prosecute the war, and preserve the honor and safety of the Country, nil hands agree in sentiment and in action, and none more heartily than the Whigs, notwithstanding the cxccedinclv contemptible fling at them in the Executive -Message of .Mr. Polk. When the people of the United States behold Whigs in com mand of our victorious armies, and outnumber ing the braggart democracy in 1 lie enthusiasm with which they enlist in the ranks of danger, it will require feieral ob-curc gentlemen suddenly elevated by accident out of their appropriate spheres, to convince them that the Whigs are traitors, because like honest men they freely dis cuss the wicked scheme of a partisan Chief Magistrate. The boldness with which the Ad ministration has played the game of getting up The Cemetery. There enn now be little doubt that we shall see at the opening of Spring, the commencement of operations for the prepaiatlonofa new cemetery on the hill north of the faun house of Charles Adams, L'sq. A subscription is In promising prngrcs, on a basis both feasible and satisfactory, for the pur chase of the ground and the necessary expenses preliminary to the opening of the tract for its new use. It is not in any manner connected with any plan for the removal of the dead from the present burial ground north of the Unitarian Church, but is to bo thrown open on certain terms to nil, whether they may desire to remove their dead thither from any other resting place, or Inter them thcro at first. Embellishments will progress as the means may accumulate,and all the proceeds of the sales oflotsaroto bo devoted to the improvement of the ground", after the original subscribers shall be repaid the principal and interest of their advan ces. We rejoice exceedingly at the near prospect of realizing an object which has been so near our heart, but which we lately looked upon as yet a great way olF. We predict that the new cemetery will in a few vcars become the chief nlti action of otir beautiful village. The site is nlmost without an equal in our memory, for the purpose to which it is to be devoted. From its summit, the view is admitted by nil who have seen it, to exceed all otheis, in a town unusually rich in beautiful prospects. It slopes gradually toward the vvesti and is among the l.i-t spots tinged by the rays ol the setting sun. A thick forest overspreads it. which needs but the hand of culture to make it one of the mn-t delightful groves it was ever our lot to traverse. We believe that few will bury their loved and lost in any other place, when this landof waving branches is prepared for their reception. Death of Senator Peniij backer of Virginia, raveling that now prevails In Western Vermont, clearly the most feasible vehicle for locomotion A largo body of the Stockholders in the some what famous old "Rutland liva ," which has so long and so stoutly Braved the battle and the birczc. had assembled when we reached the village of Holland. They were the "hard-fisted" yeoman ry of the Otter Creek Valley, the real agricultur al nobility of the land, who were met to receive and exchange congratulations on the apparently successful termination of their efforts to secure to themselves a railway connection with Uoslon and the Atlantic markets. Wo have seen a great manv such assemblages of vankee in Vor mont, and on both sides of the Mountains, and we arc Inclined to the opinion that it is rare to see them anywhere chc! men who, having put their hands to the plough, ate quite unlikely to stop in the middle of a furrow, whatever the tem porary discouragements. The steady and per severing progress of all our Veimont liailroad enterprises that have been entered upon, illus trates the observation. The principal uKsinMftobc transacted by this Stockholder' .Meeting, was the election of a lioaid ol Directors. The following gentlemen having been nominated by a committee previous' ly appointed for that purpose, were unanimously elected : Timotjiv FoLtETT, Burlington, Savht.i. Strong, Vcrgcnncs, Paris Fi.inciiEn, liridport, (.'haei.es Lt.xst.r.v, Middlcbury, John A. Co.na.nt, Brandon, Chester Granger, Ptuford, Geo. T. IIonGEs, Rutland, Nathaniel Fcxlcuton, Cavendish, W.M. IIemiy, Mellows Falls, John Elliot, Keene, X. II., Nathan Bice, Boston, John Howe, " Br.xj. T. Uef.d, " Judge Follett was subsequently unanimous ly appointed President of the como ration. Mnlklus it of!. Wo find the following paragraph in the Bos ton Atlas : Otun.--11-t,a.1 T.l t .ATifiK-n rnnittilfltG for Governor of Ohio, declares to lie n candidate fur the same post in 1819, under nnv circumstances. The ijio statesman publishes a letter Irom nun uatu " Briar Hill, Nov, s, 1SIG" in the course ol which be says: " One great object In declaring is fo afford myiclf tunny nj ralhlng triroiifia ini viuic jium stump to stump entirely untramuielcd having no other or further interest in the rcutl than the most humble heater who may honor me with his presence. And this position I am icsoltcd to occupy in 1SB." If David sticks to his determination to "oc cupy this position" in 1813, the Wandering Jew will have to comedown. There arc more stumps in Ohio than he thinks of; and if he does'nt get heartilv sick of the very intellectual employment of visiting each of them, he will be the brightest example of a persevering Locofoco on record ! However, wo would'nt discourage Squire Tod from undertaking this patriotic pilgtimage. If lie accomplishes it fairly, and preserves the sta tistics of the "most humble" of his "hearers," he will make himself capital authority on field mice and bull-flogs.

Tho tunc has come when this Republic, should de clare by law that it vvill not ho made mi Instru ment In tho extension of slavery on tlio conti nent of America. That tho boundaries, Institu tions, mid principles of our Republic must and will extend, theie can bo no doubt. Tho pre sent war with Mexico must result in an exten sion of the territory of llio United States. A p?aco honorable to this country cannot be con cluded without indemnity from Mexico in terri tory. It is whispered that it will not do to pro pose a law tint any such territory should be free territory, because a Southern Administration will lake no territory unless it slnll be so arrang ed that the territory shall be opened to slavery. J vvill not listen to or hirbor so monstrous sin idea. livery inch of Texas was yielded to slavery. I know that it was reluctantly jiclded to tl'i- poscsmn ot slavery ny many wiiosiiptio-cil the acquisition of I exas might be hazarded by any dissension about the terms s0 strenuously insist ed upon by tho representatives of tlio slave Sta tes; but, with Texas, the extension of slavery. it was suppo'cd, would stop. It was ho, cJ tbh South would not dcsiie to carry it where it do-s not now exist. Is this so? Tho two millions are distinctly, urgently, and repeatedly rcconv mended by the President to be appropriated There is no other purpose for which this appro priation can be wanted except in connexion with a cession of territory bv Mexico. Mexico al ready owes us unpaid indemnities forncknovy. lodged and adjudicated spoliations on our coin mcrce. I repeat, wo must have territory from .viexicn; aim there can tie no harm or improprie ty in staling what circumstances and every ac tion of our Government proclaims to tlk- world as clearly and as unerringly as words could do. Shall tho territory now free which shall come to our jurisdiction be free teriitt ry. open to set tlement by the laboring man of tile free State or shall it be slaves territory given up to slave labor ? One or other it must lie ; it cannot be ootli. 1 he I ili.ir of the fieo white men and wo men, and of their children, cannot and will not eat and drink, and lie down, ai.d ri-eup with the utacK lauor ol slave ; tree vv.uto l.mor will no be degraded by such association.

There I mliinn ilonlit nf what U the duty of every good citizen of tho United Stales in a state of The enemies of ins country should tie his enemies her friends his friends. A cordial upport and vigorous prosecution ol llio war briiild bo msbiinnd while tho war lasts. Tlio war should bo terminated whenever an honorable pcaco can bo obtained, and tint before. l lio lull which i propo'cu, ami sun pnqiu-u introduce. looks to such a termination ofthe war. While its first feature tho two million appropriation more clearly discloses what it would be ill vuia to deny, or attempt to conceal, at Ilie acquisition of territory, nt leatof the tlifornias and New Mexico, as an indemnity for the war, as well as for previous vviong nnd lupines ag.nnt our Government and citizen, ill be insisted upon by the iiovornmem. oi tue ni cd States, but upon terms liberal and hono iblo to Mexico, it contains also a principle, in ie provision proo-e!.l by my friend from Perm hum iin.iortmt twitno war iiscn : a priu- c p'o with which Mo.vi.o, in arranging her terms of pptce, lias nothing to do, and with which I , In not understand tii.it it is proposed iiyanyoooy die should have anything to do. It Is no sub ject of treaty stipulation unless tlio treaty ma king powcrsof the powers of the two Govern ments shall, of their own freewill, choose to mtkoit so. It is a question purely our own, uid pertaining exclusively to the United States. This principle excludes slavery from any terri tory which may hereafter ho added to this coun try. This principle I deem to bo of v ital im portance-, and should be very much gralilicd ll it could receive the tin iniino'iis assent and nppro- ttion of Congress. This, however, I doiiot ex pect. 1 he same interest which pertinaciously initcil upon extending slavery oyer Texas still lesiies, I apprehend, its lurther extension, this -hnuhl not be so. For the existence of slavery in the United Stales the Government of the Re public is not responsible.

Kins, Of Xctr York, in the House of lleprcsentathes, on the war, Annexation, Slatcry. (I'loin the National Intelligencer Mr. Pi'.i'.ston Ixixc, asked leave to mako a per sonal explanation. Ieave lieiug unanimously given Mr. Kim, said : Mr. Speaker, I find in the Union of this morning a paragraph, alluding, I presume, to a bill which I ye'slerd iv asked leave lointrodiice. Tlio editor of the Union, it is very evident, mistakes tho purpose of tho bill. I de sire brielly to state tho reason and opinion which induced me to propose tho measure ; and, lb it I may mt be misunderstood, I have written what I propose to say. Sir, in proposing to introduce that bill, I had no intention to interfere with or to anticipate the action ofthe standing coumiitteo from which it came to the House nt tho la-t session, but was governed solely by the desire to bringthe subject presented by the provision of tho bill to the curly consideration and action of the House.. Tho bill embraces two principal features one pla cing an amount of money at tho discretion of the President, to bo use-d in negotiating a peace with Mexico, if an opportunity shall occur when tho President should deem it proier to use lhi mo ney in negotiating a treaty of peace; tho other excluding slavery from any territory which the United States may hereafter acquire, being llio provision offered by tho honorable gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Wilmot), and adopted as a part of l his pence measure by tho House of Kcpresentatives in August la't. I vvill frankly say thai, if 1 had not supposed that ihero vvas a disposition in home quarters silently to gite the free principle uf tho Wilmot propeisitiou ihego by.'and, by siuothcriiigand avoidingaclion upon ittogivo further extension to the dominions ol slavery at thoexponso of free territory, I should not at tin. timo liavo brought forward this lull The measure vv hich I had the honor to propo presented this subject lo the House. I cuntir an 1 of cour-e do not, claim any originality in the principles of the bill, one feature ol whicn come Irom tin earnest recommend ition ol the l're.- dent in Ids special mes-'igo to Congress oft! last session ; tho other from the motion of my friend from Pennsylvania, (Mr. Wilmot.) an the adoption of his proposition by tho House when the bill was considered and passed. The bill is again, in the annual mes-age of the Pre siuent at ino opening oi me present session strongly recommended to tho favorable attention of Congress. The history of the measure known to the House and tho country. It pa sed the House- of liepieientatives at tlio la-t so- sion, .i to on the Satiudav liitiht next nrecediii: .Monday, the 10th of Angu-t, on whiclnliy Con gross bad decide'd to ad enirn nt It! o clock noon. .Many other important bill- were still pending in that Senile, to be dicidtil in tl ; firenoun of Monday, and this bill, taken tip tho l.t-t hour of tb'o session of the Senate, jnolioceivo the final action of a vole upon it i P'ssage, but was lost by not having boon veted I upon, anJ without the'dici-ion ol the Senate. J This measure, in a timo of war, is recommend- I cd by tho I'rosidiMit. nnd should be neted oo bv Congress as a pcaco measure', and is evidence to the country and to the world that, however vigorously it may be deemed ju-t and proper to pro-ecule tho war, while war or cause of war exists, still the desire for honorable peace is a sentiment strong as ever with our Government ; and Ibis measure, recommended by the Presi dent, is evidence that no intention exi-ts, in ne gotiating a peace, to demand terms other than such as nre honorable both to this country and to Mexico. Ofthe causes of the war, or the manner In which it commenced, it would scarcely be pro. per for me now to speak ; even if it were, thee topics have been discussed nt very considerable length by those much more nblo to elucidate t ieinthan I am. 1 am oneof tho o who b-heve a war with Mexico was inevitable after the an nexation of Te.xa-, upon tho terms selected by President Tyler, should be consummated. Whe' tber llio alternative mode pre-enled by Congie-s, or any other mode or terms would liavo avoided war, it is now, perhaps, un-eless to inquire. The annexation of Tex.t to the United States was believed to bo desired by the people of both countries, and Texas wa annexed. Tho rigid of annexation by two independent natioiisran liotlsi questioned. But to obt liu poserioii ol Tatiiaulipas and Chihuahua, between tho Nue ces and tho llio Gr.tude, where the Mexicans held di-piited possession, and to get Santa IV, where the Mexican authorities und neonle hold I undisputed, possession, the use ef force w as ne-iCi'-n Tl.e ii i ! lo, m b."ivcvu nations to decide a disagreement between them is war. The n o of force and of military power wa ne'Cessary, 1 repe n, to expel llio Music in autho. rit ics from nil ol these province claimed by Texm, tilde1. .Mexico .should cede tln-in by i 6 giiti.ilion. But .Mexico not only refused to aban don Tamaiilipas und Chihuahua, b 'tween the Nueces and Ibo llio Grande, and Santa Fe, on tho north of Texas, but she even asserte-d it cl lim Government of the United Slates should be ins trumental in extending -I. ivory in any direction, oriu conveitmg Iree territory iiito si ive territory. lo avoiil Una result, it is ueco-ary lb it fongre hill iirovidj bylaw against the existence ol lavcry in any territory which bere.ilter tmv be- coms the territory of the S.ate, and which -h ill not be included within the limits of a State. Whenever any territory shall liavo obtained a population -uificieiit for'tiie formation of a State Government, and -h-M have formed a State constitution, and li.'cn admitted into the Union is a .state, then the rjrhin-ibihty of thel eder.il Government on the question ol slavery for tint territory and people, thus admitted a's a State, ceases. Then, sty they who oppose the enactment of tho Wihnot proviso, Why not let the question Hone, aim le tv o it to the States and tho people them-elvesto d "(ermine w hether the State sh ill bj a slave State or a free Stato 1 This inquiry and reasoning is spt cious and plausible ; but the simplest examination on the principles of com mon seii-e will show that it is unsound and f ilse. If left alone, slavot more or les will lie curled to the new territory, and if the country while- it remains a territory should be settled by a nopu 1 ilii ll luldiig slave, til o new nml additional que-tion ol abolition i pre-ented, and ill order to get a free Suite, slavery inu-t lirst iu abolished. This embarr.i-ineut in a new community, with out means to indemnify the owners, would bean obstacle almost insurmountable, and tho new State would lu very fir Irom luing free to choose between becoming a Iree Stato or a si ivo State.
