You will not expect that, in unking th's com munication, 1 array before you many topics. So simple is the form an 1 so easy the vvo'l.ing of our Stale government sotpnetlv do our civil ti uJ political institutions move on in their cour ses o seldom, in our com;"ir,i'ive spclit-ion. is the surface of pnjiul.ir cout'iit ru'llod lint u erystiin cut exigence for legis'ialive interpo. Fitiou rarely occurs. Our municipal polity still io. I, mainly, on iU first principles, and few am i ig I'.s, if is believed, me disposed to disturb tho fiund.ilion.

Thn pro if-, lint a government origin ated by and atlniini-teied for the puople is prac ticable, are thickly spiead on the iages ol our history: and we aie living witnesses to the em inent success of the experiment for the enlarge, mi nt of the hapiuos. ol the ric-", on which om in .

The -I'titniipnt of rcv crenre ol it -hould beeaily cultivated. No one. v.'Ih iovmg ins children, loves al-n Ins couniri V. ill neglect to tesch ct his lire-si le the doc lmit of rip?tt and of obediencu to the 1 iw- . I he land. ltistiutli, hiving intimate conn 'clion with the idea above epre-'e., that the sen-e of ob ligation to honor the laws and enfoice their miic'ioiis is weakened by very frequent ching es in them. The first conccp'mn of a stab'.' j'overninent is that, in the nature of thing-, il iiilesof duty are to be con-taut, alterable, at un-t, only on imperative neccs-lty for conform ing with the miteri.ll changes that grow out ol the irogres- (if sooiety. ll i- to be kept in mil) I licivover, that no code can be m ule to Meet and t-'iti-fy at once ereiy eimrpiucy in the all'iii oflife. The leading irmi-ions of all stitutc are to be deemed, in ien' view ol them, mere jiiincipk-, in the adaption of which to ca-es a tbey arise, the tendencies and rll'-cts of those provisions will be elicited. Time and careful study are i in!is;en-ab'o to the duly ailliiij with the geneial lav.' a Iip.v stitute, lie-ides no habitual obser, or n the ditr -rent source.s ol lpg.il controv.'r-ies inn hive fiiled to dUcvrn. that some ol iVmii owe their exi-tence to the linceit'iinty which veils the construction of some lecent act not jet judicially expotinled. Yield tug to the fjree ol tho coiuiderathms thus brief ly s'.'iled, and others o! much weight omitted. 1 submit the proposition, which, I think, should hive continuil pie-ence and uutlioiity in every law-making body, lint no en lctineiit'be t'i-s-'d until it shall have been cloarlv shown that the harmony of the general law of the main subject would not be ilureby broken. The iintiui'J ex perience of others su-taiis my c mfiilencp in tho opinion, that weie the rule inlinrited adhered to, conjectural emendations t the statutes would less frequently bo tried, and so our lejjil sy.-teiu would obtain time for consolidation. Tho subject of Popular IMocitinn is one that must not jii's unnoticed.

Recent events, of vv Inch none i f us are igno- .nit, have placid in iiuusii ll prominence before the public eye a subject which it i- impo-sihie to touch without Stirling the si n-ibilitie.s of the whole Union. One ol th eU'ects of the war With Mexico, U the acqui-iti m ol 1 irge poitions of her domain, which aie no,v waiting lo he placed by the United Stiles under teriitori.il government. Of the diameter of that war, or the jiislne-s of that acqni-ition , I do not jirnpo-u hole to 'peak, being unbidden so lo do by the respect due unto the opinion? of others, and by the rules of olliei il decorum. Hut, the territory isllie common projietly of all the Slates, anil up on tho point of the di-ios,il, or of the in lingo. m 'nt ol it, erinont is in'.ukd to b heard, ami to act. ll is, therefore, a niatli r of doiii -stic in teres', and, as such, claims our atleutio i and vigilance, Tho countiy viebli'd hvoursi-ter republic being contiguous 1 1 tho slaveholding States, and much of it being siippoed to bo nat urally stiilid lo the libor ol the Mac!; in m. it is iu-isied that slave owners should bj allovvcJ to carry their si ive- into it and there hold them as I properly : lint Congress, in providing ii govern- limit for it, should expres.-ly legilizo silvery , tlie'i'iu.

I In relation to the point of .Slavery, tho posi tion of this State cannot be misunderstood. That , institution was interlaced with the fabric of the federal constitution, anil it miy not be violently extracted. Yet, as it injuriously affects our reii rcncnt'ititc rights, no further similar encroach.' tnent the reou will bo consented to. For a sufli-' ciem poiuicai leasou.iiien, tins State objects to the rxten-ion of Slavery. There l, however, n "profonndcr cause forlier itncmnproinUing opposition to it.
