Tar foot !S?w York journals. Light Bbeaiisg ?Tbe brief speech delivered In tbe Senato on the day before yesterday by Mr. Dixon, of Connecticut, is tbe theme of the praise of all onr exchanges not devoted to tbe cause ol abolitionism on the one band, or to tbeeqaallj reprehensible caoao of tbe wanton destruction ol the Government on tbe other hand. Tbe infer ?<*??wn from It bv the press favorable to th? settlement of the difficulty la the Union, that i portion of th? Republican party of this Congrew are about to step forward to do their beat to rio the North of abolition political ascendency, la i ec.-rect one ; and hourly that wing of that party li becoming stronger here, we are happy to add. The Ster'? readers will remember that we havi persiatently held t .at the moment the people o the North became convinced that political a be liticnlsm must Injure tHftn as much as it has s far really Injured the South, that moment a rear tion Would commence there, which will tpeedil dethrone the monster everywhere in the North. The Act that Messrs. Corwln and Dlxoa ar 1- * ?them a nowerful win of their party in Congress, to labor earnestly an honestly for a satisfactory settlement of the threat n?d trouble, la Dot more significant of the correc neat of oar anticipation referred to above, tha the extraordinary result of the municipalelectior in Massachusetts that took place last week, wb< the tlx cities of the State each and all of the: overwhelmed the abolitionists with defeat. 1 everv one of them they were previously in powe apparently for all time to come. They were Bo ton, Lynn, Newbiryport, Roxbury, Charlctowi and laat but not least, Worcester, heretofore tl very hotbed from whence moat of the miacbi that now endangers the Union sprang. Such r suits tell more forcibly than can be otherwise tol< the fact that even Massachusetts is preparing ra] Idly to do her share towards the restoration of tl proper understanding between the two now a verse sections of the Union. His Budget or Exccsu.?Mr. Cobb's buda of excuses for running away from his charge noon aa he found It apparently in a draper Vinif, Win, WC applCUCUU, UQ au cuvvt v^| site to that of relieving him from the censure public opinion for the part be baa played in 1 work of destroying the Government, for the 1 month or two. Our own belief i?. that had 1 mind been as closely occupied in that time w. the exigencies of the branch of the public bu nsss of which he wu nominally the guardian, with the labor of aiding and abetting the w< of the oligarchic Immediate secessionists in the Gulf States, the latter would not have so succeeded as to beggar the former?the Treasi of the United State*?his charge. Our means observation here have satisfied us that he 1 done more than any other one public man in i country to make the settlement of the Slav trouble within the Union well nigh an impc: bility, If bat by persistently using the infiuei of his official position to strengthen the bands those who want disunion in preference to ent security of Southern tights under the exist Government. HU disunion labor* have beer the bottom of all tbe Imputations upon the In1 rity of the course of the Government here towa ita trust, which the opposition have of late ur| bo vehemently, to the destruction of the valu property of all kinds?stocks, labor, laittfs, negr produce, and goods, wares, and merchandl everywhere. Tub Aiik ii Slave Tiile ?If there be r yet sceptical of tbe purpose of the leaden of seccsslou movement of the Golf State*, to gra tbe desire of their negroiess followers for tbe opening of the African slave trade in case t succeed in breaking up tbe Union, they have c to come here and listen attentively for a few c to tbe conversation of tbe subordinate secessloc now in the Federal metropolis, who evide regard the rerstablishment of tbat trade as b< as certain to grow out of successful secession tbe night to follow tbe day. Indeed, one of leading causes of their disinclination to hsve An)/ tn on inln pniinrll ?>lh >K? hn alaveholding States, ia because they believe tbe latter may prove powerful enough to cU that darling purpose. Ia their conversation they by no means follow the wily advice rece given to them by tbe Charleston Mertury, nt broach the subject of reopening the African a trade " now."

It is now aa ordinance and law of the State. An anendmeat waa introduced Into the army THJ Mil, authorizing tbe Uorcrnor ?i souio i ironna r| to receive any aid that may proffer Itself frost any and all Southern Stefcs?tbat la from all alsveholding State*, for tbe word slareholding wu particularly eraph?slted by Mr Black, the author of tbe amendment In the House of Representati Tea, and when it waa suggested by Mr hd wards, tbe Chairman of tbe Military Committee, to atrlke out tbe word "slavehnldtng," be repudiated tbe idea, and declared tbat be wished no "Yankee 1 r! aid;'' tbat if any aid waa to be called In or to be A desired, or received when proffered, It was to be genuine Southern sld?aid from men whose prlnciplas wars la accordance with those of South Carolina. The amendment has created no lltt1? discussion in tbe House of Representatives Its opponents are composed of the democrat*, and they fought 1T1 the meaaure with bitterness One of them, a Mr J Tope, Jr., thought it would eittllj touch tbs liberties, of the people He fesred some future uovernor wuuia mrow inn ooaj w uirm uvuuu him * a aort of "prrlontn guard" and wltb It would "destroy the llbfrtin of tbe people" He openly denounced tbe meaaure In times of ITt trouble, when a military dictator aball rule, and when the powera of aoYereijtnty are vested in one man; when the fete of a people reata in the will of a mini <1 la tlma tn ho ImIoiu of dowcf. Again It waa refused when tbe umr bill waa la agitation before tbe Representative Chamber, to 11 comply with tbe democratic wlshea, and authorize tbe Inauguration of a Gubernatorial Council of four to advlae with the Executive and place a check upon bla will The gentleman who brought up tbl* question advocated it with earnest and ft. hon* ?t ab lity.
