While, as all the world knows, the President was firmlj and openly eppoaed to th? French spoliation bill, the Union was doing its beat to compass i s enactment. In its number before ua we Col copied a long communication, designed to effect he full rebanishment of the Memphis Suvj Yard; ye' it ia well known that the te*d of the Navy Department has substan tia.'^ declared to Congress that no good end cou<d be att.iinei by its being kept up as tbe communication in question proposes The Preaidant is known to have been oppose! to P^'fic Railroad bill, which the Union advocated We mention these facte, only by way *?f showing that, of late, the Union't opinions on Governmental matters here are not to be relied on as implicitly as wbon it was in the haVt of reading the views of the Democratic National Administration, and thoeo of the raajori'y of the Democratic pirty Congress. We seriously doubt, under thc?e c'rcu^iatances, whether its opiniens of wha1 i~%y hapren here in time to come, are really worth mu?h more than oura For the sake of the future of the great Dem o:ra ic pnrty of the ooun'ry. we (the senior eli or of the Star,) long for the arrival of the t me wher. a disolation of the official connec tion of Col. John W. lomey with the govern nent witl enable h?m to assume tbe duty of guarding the Union s halm off the breakers on to which that Journal eeemi Jist now bam Ou dashi-.g tbe interest with tin protreli o of w),iob U is ohsrged; it beiDg evidont, to our apprefceaaloo, that tho present policy of the Union oncnot by any means be hla The Texas Bonds Question.?To-day being set for the oonsideration, in the House, of the bill appropriating $8 500,009 to pay the debts of 'ho Republio of Texas, wo proeeo?l to give the Sii '* reauer- some Hea of the fa-ts involved in thia prypo^itkn and its true oharaeter Tie Congress of the United States, in settling tho Texas boundary question, agreed to give Texas $10,000,000, one half of which wa^ duly paid tj her, and the remainder reaerved, as by a provision in the law, for tbe payment of the outitanuing bonds of tho Texan Republio It was also agreed that the Unitea States ahould pa' interest on thia aura until they pay it to the bond holders, which is to be dene wiien they and Texas agree as i? its divisions amorg them They have not yet agreed, most of tbe ben J holders refusing to submit to the method of sealing that Texas propose s and therefore decline executing toiler the re lease the United States law requires. They olub togetaer. however, and c^me to Congress, asking th^t $%,*03,000 shall be paid instead of the $j,000,000 ; whioh first mentioned sum is supposed to be sufficient to enable Texas to pay nearly all her debUs at par. The question is, is there a shadow of liabil ity ou the part of the United States to pay more than the five millions originally agreed to be paid, and interest on it to the time when paid? The plea of the bond holders is, that by the aot of annexation they were deprived of the security of the revenues of Texas from oustoms This is shear nonsense. Texas never had a dollar of revenue with whioh to pay the inter est ol these bonds; aad had ebe remained in dependent of us. she never would have had any such revenue sufficient to that end. The ac t of annexation, instead of impoverishing her, has gradually relieved her from the state of *otual and notorious bankruptcy in whioh she then was, and has given value to her means of herself paying her creditors the balance of her debt. That is. it has made her eitiiens prosperous, and haa caused the de mand for her publio lauds which has made them worth something, instead of being prae tically worthless, as heretofore. It has, in truth, made her able easily to pay the differ ence wbieh she, not the United States, is bound to do, if these demands are just. United States receive, through the annexation, but about $40,000 per annum in d'JUes collected in Tsxas-the iaterest ou one million dollars. Yet they have agreed to Fiy fire million,, and interest, wheaever ***** *** w*th her oreditors how they -?-9 to be pa:d. Now, in losing tbe $60,000 ?cr annum, (not a dollar of which c<hld they have touched until after the expenses of the 1 adopend?nt m?rnue-!t wore paid,) tb?i Iloes was small, in teed Ye: they demand ou that aooount, to be paid from tho National rieasury every farthing they olaim as due from Texas, though tho la'ter, In sealing their olairas, pronoaooad much of them improper to be paid at par. They say that the General Government is unjast towards tbetn In de clining, so far, U pay mora than five mlilioLS, ?nd intereet to date, though for the balance ihey have still tha obligations of a substantial and thriving State, instead of a barren pledge of preoarious revenues for the payment of the whale. Now seriously, there is not tha least jut ice in this olaim against the Genera! Ojvern ment for Increased compensation. The oaly plausible pretext we hava aver heard urged for tho proposed gratuitous paynent to these parties of two millions of the money of the tax payers of the United States, is that ihere is a surplus in the Treasury, and it might as well be circulated among the people as hoard ?d by tbe General G overnment! We have seen that reason Substantially sat forth iff an argument in favor ot tha enaotment of tha bill as it stands 'Ihe General Government, it strikes u? have ;>aid sufficient already on account of Tex*a, without stepping forward to make persons holding her bonds (many of which did n<-t cost more than ten cents on the dollar to theii present holders) a present of two millions oi dollars at a dash, which no one pretends is due in law or equity from the United States to them. There would be much more justice in their giviog the United States two millions of dollars in return for tbe substantial wealth? ability to pay her debts?which has been con ferred on Texas by the annexation. As, with* out that, they *over would havo realised the first dollar of their claims. Mo one disputes the obligation to pay the five millions agreed to be paid. .Many are willing to pay interest to date, because it is nominated iu tho bond, though the General Ujverninent is by no moans reiponsible for its accumulation, innsmuch as it has always oeen ready to pay up whenever called on so to do?the delay being against its wish and under U* pro'est We regard the Idea of de manding the payment of $3 000,0 ;i) extra from the i'ederal Treasury only \>j way of making the psaoe between Texas and h?-r creditors, as perhaps the saost monstrous and flagrant ex ample of a disposition to empty the National Treasury by hook or by erook, in the shorten possible time, tha< was ever devised in an American legislative b.dy, as full of 6uoh preoeder.ts aa American legislation has become in the last decade.

Latcher, Bayly, Zollicoffer, Eigji ton, Olds, Preston, and Peokham, when the teoond resolution was referred to the Judiciary Committee, and the first was passed.
