Colonisation Southward shows ap the fallacy of the idea that the late filibustering expedition!* of Walker are of the same character with the series of oc. currences which resulted in the independence ami annexation of Texas. and urges forcibly that to aojuire the privilege of constructing milways, canals, acJ roads across the isthmus by treaty; to settle the region* of Country traversed by these routes with peaceful trades men. farmers ami mechanics ; to thus gradually occupy the eountry by a growing and thriving population of our own blood, welcomed there for the wealth and prosperity they create around them?would scorn ihe only sure and infallible mode of planting our institutions per manently in those region*. In conclusion it says: 44 If. contrary to nil our policy. we must need* extend our in?titntioii? southward by force, let it '*? done by honorable war. and not by piratical foray. * r 4 It is Impossible to lielleve that the Congress of th* Iniifd SUitm wili consent to sanction, by Indirection or roanivaare, aclandestine system of warftrr. condemned by the I twof nations and public opinion all over the world, while show in<r itself to be wanting In the frankness snd bold* ness to declare open and honorable war for the a. >mpl i^hment of the purpose* avowedly aimed at by these expeditions." The Tritetfi^-nerr is occupicd with news mat ter*. * WAS J 11NG TO JW NEWS AND GOSSIP. Kassag.-l-Wo take pen in hand at this time? Saturday night?to write our impressions upon the tendency of affairs in Kansas, as .-ecu through latest authentic accounts from tbo Ter ritory. Our belief is that the imbroglio is over The great majority of tho non-slavchold;ng State party voted, we have every reason to be lieve. on the 4th instant; thereby acknowledg ing the validity of the Lecompton Constitution, and endorsing the propriety of the admission of K?n?as into the Union upon it. Lane and his followers it is true, are still the opponents of that policy But they amount to a very small fraction of th* population, indeed. To so small ?a proportion a; that their opposition cannot pwaibly be of any avail. We know well, from information in which we confide, that at least nine-tenths of the voters of the Territory must *ve participated in the election of the 4th Wcr the provisions arranged by the Leeomp tou Convention This fact sweeps from under the feet ot the opposition outside of Kansas all honeat pretence, too, for further demurring to the admission of the Territory into the Cnion under the Lecompton Constitution. It destroys a!? chance of the sueccas of the plans of the Re publican party to keep alive the Kansas issue lor I860, as well as those of the nominal Demo crat* who have of lafe deserted their party on this great and really only issue between the parties of the country The free?or. as we should term them, non-slaveholding? Statc jarty ot Kansas thus endorse the propriety of the prompt transfer of all the Kansas issues to the people of the Territory alone; which is the policy of the present Administration, as well as of the Southern Democracy Who of the North can longer reasonably holdout against the wis dom of the Kansas views of President Buchanan ' M* months ago the Washington Star wns in dustriously engaged in efforts to make its Sou th em friends comprehend that the line of policy ot the President, in this connection, simply meant, not hostility to the South as was per sistently alleged, but a rigid adherence to the principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act, as in terpreted in the platform ajopted by the Cin cinnati Democratic National Convention. That was all the Sober-minded of the South de manded. The crazy people tJf the South, and those there who seek to make agitation on the slavery question a trade for their personal ad vancement. asked more : and though few of them have dared to attack the President and hia administration, they have kept up a run ning fire upon all who were conspicuous in their support of the cause of the Democracy from that time to the present moment. All others of the South of all parties, from that time to this, have been gradually coming to appreciate the fact, that in the success of the present Na tional Administration is locked up the perma nency of the American I'nion. because its ]>oli cy is founded on a rigid adherence to the prin ciple of non-interfercnce of the General Gov ernment upon the slavery question, to the extent of defending the weaker section against aggressions of the stronger wherever that may be nee^sary to the vindication of the true principle of the Constitution of the United Mates as enforced in the Virginia and Ken tucky resolves of 179H- W. Thai struggle has been of short duration, notwithstanding the labors of those there who desired to make an opposition party inside of the Democratic organization, for the sake of the local profits of opposition alone subsequently a Democratic opposition has grown up in the Democratic party of the North lor a similar end precisely. It meant nothing more nor less than to oppose the policy of the I resident and the Democracy fur what might be made by that course locally. The determi nation of the free State party of Kansas, or the vast majority of it, to vote on the 4th inst.. ta, kicked over their bucket of milk, leaving triose who have essayed to make personal capi tal at the expense of Democratic principles in a very deplorable position, indeed. They nre to be pitied il ever politicians were so ritualed. The upshot of the whole Kansas imbroglio is that those iu all sections of the country who ?"?ycd to make personal capital out of it. North and S uth. have been most woefully dis appointed have burnt their lingers. While ine President and his Administration l.y their foresight, firmness and energy in the premises have satisfied the whole country that they are guided and governed by an abiding patriotism ar,d sagac;ty in the conduct of American public affairs that are not only to result in the harmo nious settlement of the momentous Kansas is sues but to advance the glory and inter*, of oar common country immeasurably in thT? ture conduct of American public affair,.

No other engine to affect the popular mind of the civilized world has done as much to generate the insanity upon the subject of African slavery with which the ao-calied philanthropists of va rious enlightened nations have been afflicted of late years, mm the London Tim**. That jour nal has been almost up to the present moment the leading patron and director of the anti African-slavery crusade in both hemispheres t is, in truth, responsible for much of the great sacrifices of property civilization which Lngland has encountered in the last twenty-five years in the West Indies, as well M for much of the decrease of fraternal feeling between the two great sections cf this Confed eracy, which in all that time has been growing less and leas until our North and South hnve, under the influence and effect of prejudices against Alri*n slavery, generated and stimu lated irn.re by the Time* than aught also have coine to regard each other with quite as much jealousy and bitteroea as was mnniftrrtH between the people of England ?UI Prance ha!f ? oeutory ago?with moet threatening conse quences to the future of the ciriliied world. too But lo. tbe Tun'* has ?t length discovered that " Cotton u King ' Or, in other word?, that it? anti-slavery policgj# rodllv d-ath find destruction to all interests which havo ynssed under it* influence, and that ]|e continuance threaten* still greater disasters to tht indus trial interests ot Britain, and cannot hereafter effect the industrial intare't* of other countries as injuriously as was intended in its inaugura tion by England, which country (Government) in inaugurating it. sought, by making what it hoped would be a very inconsiderable English sacrifice, tooiferup upon the altar of England s insatiable thirst after commercial gain, the competing interests of other nations in which a thousand fold more disastrous consequences to them would be involved than could possibly be involved In her (England's) pretence of a sacri fice by way of initiating the new philanthropic policy for an advanced world. The thoughtful reader will recognize in what we quote below from the Tunta, confirmation, strong indeed, of our own persistent views upon the eflect of anti-slavery labor on tbe substantial interests of this land, ns well as of the value of African slavery to all interests in society in the United States-North, South. East and W est?to those of the African race here as well as the Caucasian. [From the London Times. December '2ri ) It requires no great fo-eslght to perceive that a grent contest is approaching on the subject of Sla very and tbe Slave Trade. The battle of the Negro will have to be fought by the philanthro pists with a ?reat diminution of prestige, the re salt of falsified predictions and blasted hones I lie Broughams and Wiliierforces of the present day will have to adopt a somewhat humbled tone. The manifestoes of Exet*r-halt must for once be defensive and apologetic, for the world is now wiser than when pulpit and platform resounded with indignant appeals to humanity tive-and The touching descriptions of philanthropic novel writers willgo for little now a* <ar as regards our owu colonies. Those who are old enough, may recollect the traditional por traits of the Went India proprietors, tl eir wives and children, which are to be found in the " m?ra* t51'*8" of the last generation. The owner of a Jamaica property was always lying 011 a sofa, drinking sangaree and swearing at'Sambo, a tine mulatto youth, whose quivering lips and flashing ejre told how much he felt. w The lady of the house, alwavs represented as a faded iiesuly with her brow wreathed with pearls, was. of course, being fanned by two fe male slaves, wliMse delicate forms bore recent traces of the lash. The youthful heir wandered about the house exercising a whip given to him by his mother expressly lo beat the little Negroes with A faithful and ^ioiis I'ompey, exposed to every kind of ill u.?age Vcause Dinah, who loved him?oh, how fervently '?would not listen to the unmanly proposals of Drive, the overseer, com pleted tht- picture. By such representations as these a body of as hardworking and loyal sub jee,s as England ever possessed were held up to obloquy, and Negro emancipation was effected without regard to the interests of men who were popularly supposed to be revelling in Ill-gotten gains But politicians and the public, and even the friend* of the slaves themselves, have now begun to see matters in a clearer li.'ht Our own colonies are impove,i.-bed, but the sum of slave ry is not diminished ; it has only bee,, transferred from us to more grasping, pillles#., and unscrupu lous hands. Never was the.prospect of emanci pation more distant than now that foreign slave owners are establishing a monopoly of all the great staples of tropical produce. The islands which in the old times supplied so mn^h ornr ^ u-ro?^"'.frf coin- o?t of cultivation! while Cuba, thelnihd State# and Biazil are every day extending the area of their cultivation and the number of their slaves. So valuable, ind.ed, is the slave in Cuba that, in spite or trea ties and penal laws, cruisers and blockades, thousands of Africans are yearly carried across the Atlantic to work on the sugar and cotton plantations. The wealth of the island is -neb than, in spiteof misgovernment, oppressive tr.xe* and a Spanish army ofmen, its proprietois are among the richest in the world As to the United States, it is. indeed, folly to expect any change in that quarter Slavery on the North American continent has extended is extending, will extend As long as the supplies of cotton are below the demand in all the mar kets of the world so long will slave labor be t<w> valuable to 1* parted with.

If England has ruined her owu colonies that is no reason why she should seek to check CiPffrw"? American continent. Such is the kind of reasoning which is becom ing more and more common every d:iy- and we may depend niwn it that in some f?r?, ?r ?nder some pretext the slave owners of the other hemi sphere will again attempt to obtain a supply of n-groes from the coast of Africa The recent Importation info the French colomes has natmallv ?UC!r u "J1?1'?". ai,d U in no wonder that we hear it asked why a few cargoes o. such ?? emigrants could not be biought to New Or leans or ^avannab. there lobe settled according to the domestic institutions ?f the State.

Smith, the proprietor of the Seaview House, stands before liod with the brand of a perjured sinner on his brow, more than Don nelly docs. 1 have some questions to put to that tuan ; I ain not carried away by the realities of my |>o*ition. but I have some question* to put to that man, which must be answered before he leaves this world In the west passage of the Seaview House there were tracks of a bloody foot; Donnelly, the alleged assassin, could not not have ni.ide them, for he was not in that part of the house. Albert S Moses was not there on lliat morning Who do we know Was there that morning iu his bare feet? Who do we know was there in bin shirt and drawers that morning ' ?William W. Smith." Ilis speec h consisted, for the most part, of a lame attempt to demonstrate fiom the evident r that he was unjustly convicted?that the witnes ses were jmrjured, the prosecution prejudiced, and tbe Court not impartial. The Governor, too, was bandied without gloves, and the icfu*at of the Court of Pardons to commute his sentence, was ascribed to political motives. When shak ing of the conduct of Smith, the Judge, and the Governor his voice rose to a scream, and seemed beside himself. He briefly ailud*d to bituself as '?a poor young man, brilliantly educated, the hope and support of a doting father, the idol of bis sisteis, alwut to lie sacrificed by perjury to appease the law." On one or two occasions he touchingly alluded to his friends, but hisspeech was mainly a reiteration of the same story. It lasted about two hours and ten minutes Toward the clone, tbe excitement under wbich he had la bored gave way before the cold, biting air, and he became somewhat hysterical. The latter part of the address consisted of broken ejaculations and prayers. The Sheriff suggested that he must be brief. He turned around fiercely, and ex claimed, "For Hod's sake let me have my time ; don't hurry me if Island here and speak till 4 o'clock to-morrow morning " He thought Gov. Newell, in conveying to a dy ing man the announcement that he could not in te.fere, ought not to have quoted Shakespeare men he would break out Into ?? Receive my soul, ob sweet Jesns; receive the tears of myself and of mv family to drop at thy feet oh Jesus; Lord I implore thy help; I offer up thee, oh Christ, this sacrifice: vou see my heart; you are my judge; 1 ain Innocent; In a few moment* I will have to plead my cause before you ; I have no fear; Christ will save tbe chief of sinners; oh have mercy, have mercy, have inercy upon me.'' The miserable man, as he uttered these broken word*, shook almost as in an ague fit. Having kissed his friend* and the priests, he folded bis bands and lifted them up, saying, 44 God bless you iny friend* ; you brlieve me innocent. F are well, oh, mv dear relatives, and those who ar now sonowing afar off And oh, f bat pure, nn gelic cieatuie, who Is at this moment on her knees imploring for my salvation?on her liend* d knee* to implore God to sustain me; she will ntver htllevt* in my guilt; oh. no! my dear Lizzie! Good bye, sweet iove; you will see that my remains repose In Oak Hill Cemetery. In my own loved home. Farewell to you all ' He then knelt down and kissed the crucifix. W hen he arose he looked up at the gallows and cried, '* Oh God ! aud have I got to die * Oh. what a wr.uld rather itjn?tin? the is out of the pinioned, l<e about to put bomb!? d^tbV rfbit a trtrttteTtt ?' 0b Ood,! help me r* The Sheriff then pnt lb? rone around hi* neek, when Donnelly united arouna and said. lercely "How mil I lo -j :~*iiifll i iaap op <*r down?
