What mi(ilit bo done if men were wise Wli.it glorious deeds, my suffering brother, Would thev unite, In love nnif right, And cease their Ecorn of one another? Oppression's heart might he Imbued With kindling drops of loving kindnesi, And knowledge pour, From shore to shore, Light on the eyes of mental blindness. All slavery, warfare, lies and wrongs, All vice and crime tnifjht die together; And wine and corn, To each man bom, Bo free as warmth in summer weather. The meanest wretch that pver trod, The deepest sunk in guilt and sorrow, Might stand erect, In self-respect, And share the teeming world to-morrow. What might bo done 7 This might be done. And more than this, my suffering brother More th.in the tongue Ever said or sung, If men were wise andloved each other. Deaf Uncle Mfcvn, And the Liltlc Old Maid. BY ABBOT LEE.

OLD IIONKCUISM IN NEW YORK. A Locofoco Congressional District Conven tion, for the appointment of a Delegate to the National Convention, was held in Troy (N. Y.) on Thursday of last week. Tho Hon. Jon Pierson, former! a member of Congress from that District, and an Old Hunker of the purest descent, was selected to carry tho fins of Rens selaer County Locofocoism to Baltimore. A series of resolutions, glorifying the Administra tion, the War, Secretary Marcy, Senators Dix and Dickinson, and tho gallant General Wool, (not a syllable in honor of the noble old vete ran, Scott !) was passed, from which we copy liic following, and respcjtfully, yet urgently, in vt;e Ihe notice C'tftC Ji'jrllnirton Dnily iSmttml to iU declarations. Here it is, taken, " body nini breeches," from the Troy Com. Adicrlifer: ' Rrsohed, That ns democrats, in favor of a radi. en! and strict construction of the Constitution, wc hold sacred the npht of every portion of the people under the protection of the United Slates, to determine for themselves their own local laws; nnd that ice hold ttery attempt on the part of Congress to dictate to any sectioM whether they shall or shall not establish t later j, al a usurpation of poicr alike repugnant to theprovirions of the Constitution and to the principles umn which our federatite tnittem of nor, nmtnl is based." Now, then, will the Scntinrl, or any other well-informed commentator on Locofoco politics, be so very cood as to Inform us whether the lo cofoco party in Vermont, " as democrats," hold that it i " a csuRrATioN or ro we r on the tart or Congress, alike repugnant to the provis ions or the Constitution, and to te irinci-r-LES upon witicu OUR federative system of GOVERNMENT IS BASED. to " ATTEMPT " to prevent the introduction of slavery into the ter- ritory of this Union ?

The government of Yu catan offers, in case protection should be grant ed, to transfer the dominion and sovereignty of the peninsula to tire United states. Tlis mes- sago and documents were read, referred to the Committee ctt Foreign AflVirs, and ordered to be printed. The following Is an extract from the remarks of Mr. Calhoun, on the reception in the Senate of tire President's Message above referred to.

It is a just tribute to the scarred veteran, Winfield Scott, vtho will receive honor from his country men proportioned to the contumely and disgraco that is attempted to bo heaped upon lum by the I're'idetit and his minions. The interrogatories below referring to Gen. Worth, cover charges against that Odicer tint are perrcctly overwhelming because they aro undeniable true. With all bis unque-tioncd gallantry and impetuosity in battle, General Worth is about the hut man in the Army who should present himself in rontrat, in any les- p.'ct, with lien. ocon. The position only serves to magnify the littlenesses of his character. lyike a noble lion at bay, worried but not intimidat ed by the snapping and barking ol the canine pack let loose upon him by some royal huntsmen, the Com-mander-in-ehiel ol our ariny is presented to the twen ty millions ol his admiring and gratehil MIow. citizens, in the attitude of n criminal on trial in the capitalcap turcd by hw genius and vitlof.
