To vote against, or to withhold a vote in favor of, this motion, could not be excused by even the miserable and sneaking pretence of the r.vjirine of printing. The motion was simply to rrfcr. lint Southern ' democracy " tolerates not even such a conces sion to the free "prejudices" of the North, and the motion was immediately made by the tlami eraif Mr. Idnd to lay tho memorials upon the table. I lere again, thanks to that terror of m litical triinmer.s and dodgers, the call fur the jess and nays, we are able to fee how Vnr.MoxT stands in the battle for 1'iiedom. .lAror, Col. i.AMCtt, Soi.oj:o I'oot and (!i.oi:or.

It was an agreeable surpriso to the lovers or music to witness tho deep interest with which a kirgo audience, composed of the ' Iran ton,' (anglice, upper ten thousand,) awaited the hour or commencement. They evidently expected ' something tho quantity whereof was before them, albeit tho programme was bilent as lo its quality. The importance of a proper cultivation of music, tbo cider of the Triune (Jodesscs of the more ennobling sensibilities or human nature, is, unfortunately, but little known, and Ics3 properly aprteciatcd among us. The rapidly increasing size of our village the hxitlc or va rious seminaries of learning of both sexes ; and the enchanlingly beautiful scenery which en compass it, should long since have originated a design like this of the " Iliirlington Handel and Haydn Society." Docs not severe study demand a relaxation ? what to harmless as music I Docs Hot the endless panorama of nature's beau ties, tho ever-varying view of land and water, induce to love and sentiment ? What so charm ing an adjunct as music ? In this busy, hustling age, among this busy, bustling, thriving people, the Want of attention to a refined taste for the Pino Arts for all ideal creations, whether in Poetry or Music, Sculpture, Painting, or Archi tecture, is justly said to bo otic of our mt ch ir-actcri-tic and cherished faults.

Wo would gently hint to some of tbo tn ilo tfngor.s, that one of the chief nrti of vocal music is to team lo sing with real or at leat apparent cao; for thereby will bo prevented all those laborious, contortions of tho facial mtfcli s, which di tract m much from the eiioymciit ol that portion of an atidienco which join tho senes of right und hearing, to gain a plenitude; of delight. 'l'heso arc all blemishes requiring simply practice and a little judicious care, to etlbct a full correction ot them. Wo must not forget to find fault, not with the courtesy that gave but with the .selection of tho Concert Koom. It u too small, and tho stage is altogether too high, too contracted, and consequently was too crowd ed, utterly precluding that freedom of action to necessary to a good performance. If it is Ihun now, what will it bo when tho .Society in creases ? On the whole the f Concert was exceedingly creditable and universally rati-factory, as it evinced a degreo of talent and application, wo presume to say, entirely unexpected. When wo entered and saw the well filled seats and tho deep attention of the company, wo knew that ho f ir as our citizens are concerned, they will do all that can Iw desired towards the full Mipport of the Society. Ill fact, each denomination rc riJing among us derives more than an amplo return for the trilling expense, in tho improve ment of the choral music, so important in tho services of the sanctuary. To those ladies who have so assiduously given their time and talents in furtherance of this really charitable il-iign, our thanks as tho expositor of tho public feeling, aro heartily given. We fondly believe in tin1 pro-penty of tho .Society, nud are conlideiit of its improve ment; lor the eye of faith can trace its onward progress through tho labyrinth of many delight, where heart and ear an 1 voice are all attuned tu harmonica which thrill with sweet vibrations.

' The I'iiif. nt I'u.utt) tiii: SjrAvt-im' Mtsts. sit'i't. On the night nf the 2d .Inly, about 10 o'clock, shortly alter the oflicers and crew of tho Mis-issippi had turned in, an alarm was heard from the engine room, from one of the engiw or, calling eartii'-tly to tho liiemen lo bring buckets of water. The order had shortly lu'lore l;cn given to hivo steam at d.tvItL'hti tind the lire i h id just been kindled. Smoke was ut the salnd timo seen to rise from the ni-igbborhnoil of tho steam chimney, and a smell of burning pmu vvood was perceptible throughout the ship. The Commodore immediately s.lvu order to Iioat to quarters, mid proceeded With t.ieut ('nmniind- , itr,' Sydney Smith I ,oe to the cng,,. m ,. to a-ccrtatn the scene and cau-e of the fire. Tho otlicers and crew promptly repaired by divisions to their stations for extinguishing tho fire, Pre. p-ir.itions were at once mule lor flooding thu magazine, and lines of men were formed to pass water in buckets from the gangway and iort to the deck aliove the boiler, Iroiu mult r which tho smoke was i-siting. The getting iqi of steam was accelerated to coiiiinani! the aid of the engine iu pumping water when it might be needed, and thus mike tiro light tire. Iho ' pumps and tire engine, which a day or tw bi fore had been with their hose examine I and found in order, were quickly riguod and streams of water ioiireil iu the direction of the smoke. It wa- the cnnjpcturo of the engineers that tho felt above the boilers was nn lire, and igniting the deck above it. Tho deck above the boiler was promptly scuttled, and the water directed through the holes thus made. The stnnko and smell of tho turpentine still continued to increase in the engine room, rend- . eriii" the atmosphere almot too nilliic-itini: for endurance. Me'intime tho uncertainty that ex- i-ted as to tho cau-e and locatum of the fire, evidently not at the point from winch the stnnko and smell proceeded, occa-ioneil the nllii ers vi-it every part of the ship, and ( I carefully with the hand for the place of the greatest heat. This was at la-t ili-covered to lie in the star lioaril coal bunker, amulsliiji-, the inner side of which wa lieited niton- -ly, as was, in ;i less deoree, Ihe wood-work in immediite contact vviTli it. Aliout the same time, on lifting tho slates over the wan-hole-, in the spir deck, by order of the Commodore, who from the fir-t had cotiiectttred that the cm! bunker wa- the real scene of the fire, -moke was found to issuo from the man-hole in the starlnurd vv i -t, near est the part of the coal hunker whit h was found to lie- heated Mow. Streams of water from l.uckrM anil hose were at ouco pound down through tho man-hole and through a seutt'. nit in tho deck above the point of greatest he-it and the suffocated smoke, heat and odor ill the en-gin- room was found to diminish sensibly.
