WASHINGTON CITY: nOKDAY. bepleinber 1.1*46. g^7* Aiwr!li#inrDi> should be handrd in by ll o'clock, in., otherwise they may not appeal iMtll the n??*t day. ?>V TUK KOBHIHG PRESS The Jnttfli^eneer commenting on the recent dead lock in Congress, says : " That the independence of the Ser.ato as a eo-ordinate branch of the National Legislature vai endangered by this attempt on the part of the House of Representative to coerce it? ac tion, and that the precedent, had it been suc cessful. would have been a dangerous one. can be questioned, we think, by none who duly weigh the relations which subsi-t between the two houses according to the theory of the I/O - stitution and the genius of our confederated Q vernment If the custom of affixing irdo^ pendent measures of legislation to the general appropriation bills, instead of passing each on its respective irerits, mast be pronounced at all times irregular and contrary to the princi ples of sound legislaiion, the vice of such a habit becomes st 11 more glaring when it is used as a sort of duress by which to coerce the rasssge of measures obnoxious to ono or the other of the two ocvks. As the Senate and House of Repreeer.tatives etch have a constit uency of their own which they severally rep resent, it is accordance with the theory of their respective functions and organizations under the Constitution that the trill of each should concur in the parage of every enactment. They cro both alike to be voluntary in their action upon every measure, and without such concurrence on the part of both a schism must be created in the body politic, giving to one member an undue preponderance over the ? ther Not only a majority of the people as repre?ci.ted in the lower House of Congress, but also a majority of the States as represented in the Senate must cor.cur in the passage of every law enacted under the Constitution of the United States, and it is easy to perceive that the complex symmetry of ourgovemmen tal system wou!d besulverted if a single House of Congress should be able to constrain the enactment cf measure* obnoxious to the other. 44 In the piescnt case, besides the general ir regularity cf all hgislation Iik~ that attempted by a majority (for the time being) of tLe House of Representatives, during its late protracted contest with a majority of the Senate, it may not be too much to add thut the nature of the proposed proviso itself was open to serious con stitutional objections By that proviso it was sought to impeso certain restrictions on the President as Commander-in-Chief of the army. It may well be doubted whether it is compe tent for Congress to assume any such power of control over the actions of tho President with in the sphere of Lis purely Executive duties Nor is it certain that any such proviso, if ac tually passod, would have imposed any other than a moral obligation upon the President, whe, after such a demonstration, might have deemed it his duty to conform his conduct to the will of Congress; though if, a? we think is demonstrable from the Constitution, the su preme command of the army is one of the at tributes of Executive prerogative, we are net clear in the opinion that Congress is warrant ed in imposing any restrictions upon this right: for if in rne case why not in every ense, until at last the power of the President as Con: mander in Chief of the aimy shall bo wr^tcd from b:s bands r?nd placed virtually and en tirely in those of Congress ?" The Union is delighted with tho defeat of the Republicans of tha House on Saturday la^t, and in the course of its remarks on that subject it essays to eh. w that "if the devil'' had a mortgage cn 44 Turn Walker" he cer tainly ha? a valid one cn the Republican party of the day. W^SHISGTcN KE\v9 AND GOCSIP The Policy of the Extra Session ?The action of the H"U?o on Saturday last amply vindicates tha wisdom of the policy of the President in calling Congress back to Wash icgt >n. Ihere is no estimating the evils that w. u'.d have immediately resulted to the pub lic interest from the failure to enact tho amy appropriation bill W? mean in this imme diate connection, the ultimate cost of such a calamity the national treasury Perhaps ten yean of time, and fivefold of the money appropriate! in the bill, might put the mili tary scrvice of the government in the condi tion of usefulness, discipline and preparation ftr the proper discharge of all its functions in wh:ch it niw exists, in esse of its lately threatened disb.mdment and utter disorgani sation. But the disaster' of that sort that w uld bars fl wctl from the triumph cf the r heme of vwlual revolution, which the Cim ness and energy of President Pierce defeated, are ts nought compared to those to have re sulted from the tuccess of the game of the Republican party in its influence on the polit ical future of the Union I Disunion, swift and sure, c~.uld not have failed to have been its c< nsequence It would have am< unteJ to proof that hereafter the Oencral Government's pjwtr and influence, despite the opposition of the Executive and the United States Sena'e. can at will be used by the anti-slavery majority of the House to work its will over law. constitution, justic, an 1 even common decency, against the guar anteed rights of tho slaveholdirg States. With such proof fetaring them in the face, and with the knowledge which they (tho South) now possess of the firm determination of the great Republican p litical party to carry out the purposes of abolitionism one and all If they wouid submit, it is not to be doubted thjt they would promptly haveaioptoi measures t" re sistance, which, in turn, would have produced a speedy dissolution of the presentrocfedera y It car n"t be tb it the President and his con stitutional advisers failed to comprehend all these facts. Indeed, th?ir firmness and en ergy. as displayed throughout the trying ?ti uggle, lati.-Hed us that their exerti ns were lo ward off the ur^nd contingency to which refer. We know that inoie r Ita-: Democratic mem ber-cf the H'.use, and a few f the Senate, anxious te be relieved from the irkeomeness of ;htir pr 'ractcd residence he-re, fretted and fumed n<t a P'tle nr. ier the restraint of the calle l ?*--m n c.ur e under the belief tlr<t it* pn.Wit c uli tvt i,e succe-sfulJy carried out, whi< h idea was the result rather of their own anxiety to g*t away, tnan of the want of wis d' m in the ul(1 inching determination ,.f the President to discharge his whole duty to his trust, as involved in the controversy The re sult, however, has satisfied?more than satis fied?ail whose hearts beat in unison with the principles cf the Constitution threatened by the defeated revolutionary scheme, embracing the 6outhern Klow Nothings o! Congress, a* well as Ul the Democracy. Fremont and Robinson ? The California papers by the last arrival comment in pretty plain terms upon the letter of Fremont pub lished some months sin:e endorsing the bo?U? Governor Robmpon of Kansas. As a specimen ?.f th*ir e. miuei.ts upon that letter we present the Stur'? leaders with an extract from the fcjn Fra .cuco GlnU, of tho 2*th of July ult , which, it will te perceived, substantiates to lie Trtter fc|| we said wh?n the miss vsin ques till" mw the I gl.t, o ncemug the Calitorn a history of Kobinaon, his disgracelul eonnaetton with Fremont's election to the United States Senate, F.'? political cancer in California. * Ac. The cxtract is as follow? : " Let as examine their relative positions at that time. In our judgment n? two porsons were so wido apart in feeling, in interest an 1 in sentiment, as theso two gentlemen Col. Fremont was considered then, by all classes, at the head of tho large Mearican Land Grant holders, while, on the other band, Dr. Robin son was at the head of tho Squatters or Set tiers. Everj person then supposed they hated each other cordially, and it was considered tbat they could as readily unite as oil and water Never did two factions become more embittered towards one ano'.hor than the fac tions which tiK.sc two gentlemen represented. Indeed they resorted tr? bloody war to main tain their power. Dr. Robinson, it was well known, was the chief of the Squatter forces in what was called tho Squatter riot or war cf 1S50, in Sacramento 4' In that bloody contest he was badly wounded, and for the part he had taken in it, no |was arrested, imprisoned, and indicted. Se\ eral of the bejt citizens in that city were killed during the progress of the fight. In the midst of the confusion which this orent crea ted in political parties, ho was, while a pri soner, elected to tho Legislature. When the tiir.o cause for tho assembling of tho members of that body, the friends of the numerous can didates for tho United States Senate, as well es those who wero anxious to carry through the \ tillrjo Capital and other measures, suc ceeded in having him bailed out that he might be able to take his teat in tho Assembly. There be played hiscard admirably until tho indict ment agaiust him was squashed. But it was a notorious fact that he refused every open overture made him by Colonel Fremont's friends to vote for that gentleman. Indeed, ha could not vote for him, without incurring the deepest indignation of the t>ettl?rs He soon, howevor, become thoroughly corrupt end for soldo reason unknown to us, fi nally voted for Col. Fremont for United Slates S.nator several times No sooner was this 'act known, .than the settlor* or squatters of Sacramento, and everywhere else in the State, disowned and denounced him They branded n:m as a traitor?charged bini with corruption, to great was the indixnatiuu of this class of our people that Robinson felt that his life wai not altogether safe a* long aa he lived among tnose whom he had so grea'.ly wronged and outraged, by voting for Col. Fremont, lie therefore surreptitiously left the State, cover mere to return to it. Iu proof of this fact we refer to Gov. Bigler, Gov. Johnson. Msj Har denburg 11 L Kobinson, L.-q ,L J.C Kcwen, Jv-q , Judgo Ualston anu otuers who can tes tify tuat Robinson did bring down on himself tne indignation of tho Squatters, for voting fur Lol. Fremont, and did leave the Siato because ho had lost the confidence of hie constituents, for this act. In tho faco of these taetj in the lace id Col. Fremont's expressed pro-slavery opinions in California, we find these two gentlemen on the Atlantic side of tho Continent, congratulating ea.-h othor that while in this State, they harmonized andco ope.ated together?together opposed the nul liners and ^ebrask;* men, and for sn doin~ they were proscribed?that for these and other reasons they are perfectly consistent in being now members and leaders of the Republican rariy. It is impossible lor these gentlemen to thus impose on the publia."
