Maxitbrt Dentist?Papiw*? A!,d Walk an.?The 'higher law" of destiny baa had a ?orel manifestation in th? last month. The doctme of inevitable prtigrwe per Jag nttl 11 ffits?manifest destiny, has made a singular countermarch in Central Atneriea. in this affair of Walker and Paulding. After having col lected troop? and store? on our Southern coasts, stesnied forth from our ports, and landed them no thecoveted domains of Nicaragua, imperious Destiny seem? to have suddenly changed her mind, picked up her expedition again, and brought it back to the jurisdiction whence it set forth?relieving the "gray-eyed man of des tiny'' by another commander. Obeying her decrees. Walker had taken ike law into his own hands, fitted out and led forth bis expedition. Obeying the same inevitable fate, Paulding seems to have "taken the re sponsibility" in bis turn, and brought Walker and his command back again. If the authority of destiny may be pleaded against the statute book in favor of Walker, Paulding's sending back of the expedition in pursuance of the same preordained fate, must be welcomed with the same enthusiasm as Walker $ successful hegira was rejoiced over It is a poor rule that will not work both way? It would be monstrous to condemn Paulding for taking the law into his own hands in a single instance, while exonerat ing Walker for habitual, repeated and ruthless violations of the law. Paulding may, indeed, be censurable under the law. But surely Walker and his apologists, if nobody el?c, are estopped from invoking the vengeance of the law upon him The path of destiny is a devious an I tortu ous one at best, though it is probably unfair to cite the history of so unlucky a champion and incompetent a general us Walker in illustra tion of the fact. His wild-goose expedition into Sonera. and its iguoininiou.-t termination ; the auspicious begiuning and beggarly ending of his first expedition to Nicaragua, where imbe cile generalship, consummate folly, and mourn ful incompetency, wrought out so pitiable but so natural a conclusion of failure, beggary and misery: the loss of twenty days in inertness j?nd idleness at Point Arenas after this last de barkation, provoking a capture from some naval force possibly more ignominious than that which is now tho subject of so much arti ficial indignation in a few quarters?all prove either that tho star of destiny is a sinister one to follow, or else that her late leader in the central portions of our continent is as feeble, incompetent, and unworthy of command in her service, as fatally unlucky. The advocates of a belligerent execution of the higher law" of destiny, in opposition to the statute law and law of nations, must either repudiate their higher law, or else discard the incompetent chief who has assumed the leader ship in of its service. Even if the interests of the Southern States o this Union could be advanced by filibuster ag gression. conducted under authority ot the1 '? higher law ' or manifest destiny, it might be well for them to consider whether the unlucky General who has led their cause to so many dis astrous conclusions might not be profitably ex changed for another leader, not >0 identified with failure or so renowned over the world as a hero of defeats. Not one of the military leaders ot our Western border, who enjoy well-earned fame for prowess against the Indian and Span ish races, has yet countenanced the expeditions of TV alker, or endorsed his competency as a marauding leader, by enlisting ui.der his ban ner. One rather clever General (Henningsen) did. indeed, in ignorai c* of Walker's qualifica tions, join his first exjiedition ; but he seems to have avoided a repetition of the folly, and we believe was quietly sojourning at Washington when \\ alker consented to take pas-age home ward on Commodore Paulding's flag-ship. If the South should decide, we repeat, to adhere to the -higher law 'of destiny, in opposition to the statute law (if neutrality and the common law of nations, and to push her interests in Central America under the filibuster rather than the national flag, it would bo well, we think, for her to welcome the destiny which has brought Walker away from whence h* could achieve no good, as auspicious, and to commis sion some other leader of her fortunes Oo\erxor Bbowm's Speech.?Yesterday, Governor Brown, of Mississippi, added another to the list of speeches of great power and force of reasoning that Senator Douglas has drawn out, in reply to hia late onslaught on the policy of President Buchanan and the Democratic party, on the question of the admission of Kan sas with the Leoompton Constitution. In the course of his effort the distinguished Senator Completely demolished the plea of Governor Walker and his right-hand supporter, the hon orable Senator from Illinois, that in the ele - tion for delegates to the Lecompton Convention fifteen oounties of the Territory were disfran chised. We question much whether, upon any side of any debate, there was ever before de livered. in either House of CongTess. a series ot' speeches of so remarkable force of reasoning and power as have so far been delivered con secutively on behalf of the Democratic | arty cause in this great discussion. A Clither.?A Washington correspondent of the New York llnuld states briefly one of the arguments of the late speech of Senator Fitch, which created so great sensation here, by iU perspicacity and power on its delivery We quote his account of it. no less for the rtially strong point, than for fbe effectiveness with which the commentator states it. If ever there was a gun-oratorical spiked, the reader will perceive in it that Senator Fitch effectually spiaed the plea of -the distinguished Senator from Illinois that the Kansas constitution policy of President Buchanan and the Democracy is not in accordance with the spirit of the plat form of the Cincinu.iti Conventiou, on which he dwelt so pertinaciously. In the cours?; of th?r development of the Kansas imbroglio hi Congress. tint agitated t>y Jtid?/e Douglas when be ' ? nmd*- haste" to attack the ad ministration. there is, ru pasiMMf. one feature worthy <?f iiuttee?or.e which has evidently given I be Senator trout Illinois mm h annoyance and disappointment. I allude to the position talc 11 l?y the State of Indiana through her delegation in Congress,ami especially through her Senators, llr. I'itch and .M r Bright, in suppoit of the Pres ident.

I never saw the adroit Senator from Illinois, who I* beyond all question tik?. abhst "dodwei" In debate In the Senate, *0 eloeelv cornered and irritated as In the delivery of the speech of |?r. Fltcb, the new ^cantor from Indiana. The running debate be tween the two Senators wan strikingly character istic Dr. Pitch said tin- difference between the Senator from I'liuois and himself was. tbat Mr l>ont;las denied the president's conclusion lathe argument in that part l(f the message relating to Kansas, while he pretended to cointHde with htm In his reasoning and in the conclusion.

Dr. I-Itch replied, "The conclusion tbat the constitution of Kansas, If It come before as w it is supposed it will, from the convention directly without previous submission, will, nevertheless' be a constitution which we can legally accept' and, perhaps, under the circumstances, ought to accept " Here Is the gist of the whole matter In a few words. Judge Douglas, In the course of the de hate. quoted frequently tin* Cincinnati platform On this hi? opponent tema.krd that the Cincin nati pUtfo.m was 1-igged again and a^aiu info the controversy by the Scnatort He (Dr. FltcL) had some little, but not much faith in political pUUorm*, he knew how they were framed. A committee is appointed to diaft resolutiora they bring them forward, and because they do not happen to expremsly conflict with the sentiment* of the wise gentlemen then and there as* in bled, for anotherpurpose than to build a political plat fcftn to gui4e ait posterity, namely, to nominate candidates for pS-sldent and Viet* President, foriootli they ate to control the government and its policy from thencejbrth forever. He had no object i on to the Cincinnati platform; on the con* irary, he believed It to be an udmlrable one; and it recognised, In nlniost the langua^eof the Kan sas bill, the i light of the people to regulate their domeslh institutions In their own way. The people of Kansas have exercised that light In their own way? a Way deemed legal?a way the President deems legtrt. Whatever opposition there might be to that way, and whatever his wishes might be as to auy other way. he had nothing to uo but look at the laws and their exe cution Indue form. He ouly knew the will of the people through thetr laws, and knew of no right, except it be an arbitrary one, authorizing him or Congress to set aside or go behind their laws This powerful Indiana movement in the Senate In support of the administration and against the position assumed by Judge Douglas, seems to have been as unanticipated as it^was opportune. Th? Filibvster QrESTiox isthe Horse.? Throughout the past week the filibuster press have been predicting a great storm to have oc curred yesterday iu the House Hall.on account of Commodore Paulding's extradition of the filibuster Walker The reader of the proceed ings of the day will perceive that notwithstand ing their blood and thunder prognostications, it turned out to be " not much of a shower after all." The most noteworthy feature of the proceedings concerning the affair is the very general confidence manifested in the Presi dent e management of the matter. No one ven tured a hint even, of disapprobation of the doc trines of the Message relative to filibustering, upon which it is to be taken for granted Com modore Paulding acted Though all arc evi dently burning with curiosity to know all the President may be supposed to know on the sub ject, the self-evident sentimeut in the House Hall, as the proceedings of the day proved, is, that the President has not only been right upon the filibuster-Walker question, hut is destined to manage it hereafter entirely to the satisfac tion of the country on the basis of the doctrines of the annual message in that connection. Ihe nwi/rfis, that last evening there occurred much gnashing of teeth among the outsiders in Washington sympathizing with the filibusters, who for the first time realized how utterly un founded is their hope that the Southern mem bers of Congress are disposed to risk the hope of the acquisition of Cuba by compromising the Government of the United States with Walker's career of murder, arson and plunder in Contral America?as evincing official sympathy on their part would do, beyond all question. The subject cannot come up in the House again for a weok. unless ere then the President may unswer the moderate and reasonable reso lutions so unanimously adopted yesterday. As they embrace a very wide range of questions or subjects, we do not at present conceive bow they can he answered at ence. In the mean while, Mr. Wm. Walker may be expected to remain hanging around this city attracting as little attention as any other of the thousand and one folks invariably "on hand'' during a session of Congress with axes to grind before some branch of the Government or other Notwithstanding the efTorts of the wonder mongers of the press stationed here to invest his shoulders with the lion's skin of distin guished notoriety, we have to assure the Star's distant readers that already he and his case attract so little attention in the Federal Me tropolis. as that not one in fifty people here are a ware that he has not already taken bis de parture for the North, South, East or West. The trulh is, he is emphatically the hero of de feats.? .-nrreuders?of death and disaster for his followers; and all except chronic filibuster*, who are constitutionally as holiest victims as drunkards, some time since voted bim as small a pattern as a statesman and military com mander, as he is, physically, as a man !

Thirty-fifth C?a|Tfii?First SeiaUi, In thk Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, at the conclusion of the speech of Mr. Brown upon the Kansas question, the bill for the relief of George P. Marsh was considered and passed, ere they adjourned. In the House, a large number of bills, resolu tions, dcc., were introduced and appropriately disposed of, inost of them having reference to private matters. Proceeding* of To-day. In the Senate, to day. after the presentation and reference of sundry petitions, bills. Ac.? Mr. Fessenden moved to refer the French Spoil ition hill to a select committee of seven, which was opposed by Messrs. Mason and Bay ard. and advocated by the mover and Messr*. Seward and Hamlin, ere lining agreed to. and the President was authorized to appoint the said committee.

On motion of Mr. Davis, the special order, the Kansas question, was postponed until Monday Week, Mr Brown, who occupied the floor upon it, yesterday, being too unwell to go on with his remarks to-day Mr. Gwin moved a resolution directing the Foreign Relations Committee to inquire into the expediency of providing for an U. S. minister resident In Japan; which, on motion of Mr. Mason, was laid over for one day. The bill for the relief of Ab-xsnder J Atocha was then l.tken up, and was l>eiii:j considered when the Star went lo press. In thk House, after the reading of (he journal, (which occupied more than bslf an hour)? The Speaker called the attention of the House to the legal necessity of commencing novo the n msideratton of the bills from the Court of Claims, and asked permission of the House to have them all read twice and appropriately referred.'

After some conversation upon the proper dispo sition of the bills in question, In which the Speaker and Messrs. Bllliughurst, Stephen* of Georgia. Jones of Tennessee. Florence and Bo rock i-articlpated. the said bills were read twice by their st-veral titles, and appropilately referred.

Hound in black cloth and gilt lette<ed. Done up in a durable form lor permanent use. Pnce fl. This work is what its title purports to lie, an ex amination of i whht the author deems to lie; the po liticiti pi'l of the Court's opinion, avoiding any no lice or the indical pa?t. which rela'ed to theperso.-ml claims of the parties on reco>d. It is writen in a ? pint of entire devotion to the institutions of our country, and with total abstinence fr?.m all party views. The authors own words are: **l write for no party, but for all men who venerate the woiks of onr anoestora, and who wish to aee <?ur Government kept on the foundations on which they plaoed it."(p i3ii.' And it is l<elieved that this pledge nas Keen kept in the work, and which is considered, b? com petent judges, as the most original and profound of al' the author's works, and so treated as to present new views to the oldest readers, and in fact to ap pear as a new work on a subject supposed to have heed entrusted.
