The future observance by th? North In good faith of the constitutional obligation to return fngttivec from labor, to be brought about by a repeal of all eiistlng personal liberty bills, and the amendment of the fugitive slave law so as that its particularly objectionable features (to the North) shall be expunged, while it shall not be weakened in its effectiveness. 'id. The Incorporation Into the Constitution of a provision declaring that Congress shall never abolish or leglslste upon slavery in the States 3d. Immediately after admitting the territory that now stands lawfully ready to come Into the Union, and to the admission of which?Kansas? as a State, no one longer seriously objects, to divide all the remaining territory of the United States through to the Pacific, by the parallel of 34' 30, and to form of it two States, one north of that line, and the other south of it; both to be ad mitted into the Union as soon ss their inhabitants can laupi cuutiikuuoui, auu wnu bu^u tuiiiwtu* tSoot as they may please to adopt, so far aa slavery la concerned. (a his speech, Mr Seward wisely forbore to es snme to Initiate the measures necessary to carry oat thos* views; Insomuch, we take It for granted, as because the fact that they could be charged aa being kis measures, would tend greatly to weaken them at the South, while the fact they *e*rt his would be very likely also to array agalnat thein all at the North who must necessaiily be disap pointed In the composition of the incoming Cab inet, of which he la to be the premier. Thus, he haa but stated to the country the terms upon which be evidently stands ready to do his best to restore to it internal peace We flrmlr believe that In a week, or at most a fortnight, auch demonstrations will come from every northern State as will make It plain beyond denial that it ia universally accepted there, except by the radical a&ti-slavery party, to be swelled perhaps 200 000 voters larger i through dlssatlsfac tlon with the proposition) of the class of Republi can party voters represented bv Messrs 9uinner, Wade, Lovejoy, tt al. We also believe tbat by the 4th of March It will be well regarded by an overwhelming majority of those at the South really anxious for the contin uance of the Union Or, in other words, we be lieve that tt will be accepted by the country as the basis of a settlement of the slavery question upon which all the States will continue together in peace, happiness, and prosperity, quite as long as they have been under one government up to this time. Elsewhere in the Star to-day the reader will find our synopsis of tbat portion of his spetch nokfn ftfter u> w#nt nr?u on 3jtt?rd*ir liat a whole, no more powerful effort wn ever mad* In the Senate of the United State*, nor one more truly patriotic. In It Mr. Reward abandons much Indeed of the dogmas of hla party, aa be avows, to tba end of saving the Union. Mr bile ba baa 'bus given mortal offense to the extreme republicans, ba baa set an example to thoee at the Soatb who value tLe Union, wbicb they will, we earnestly hope, be swift to emulate Hia every word towarda the South breaths peace, concilia tion, and concession. We need hardly say that bis speech has had the bappleat conceivable effect upon those of the Soatb bare disinclined towards the proposed ex parlment of the destruction of the Union, and that bis argooient to ahow the danger* Involved In Its destruction Is overwhelming In Its conclusive ness. As a whole, Mr. Seward's effort fails to meet the approbation of but two classes of men in public life: of those North and South whose only remedy la the aword?of the sbolltlonists pn *?, and of the disonieatsts j>tr js?both of whom comprehend clearly that a peaseful and satlsfac lory aett emeot of the troubles of the times will involve the Instant destruction of their power to work further miacblef The Ailicid Mk?s is the Tkzascsy Depart mist ?The Waahngton hbtei hall* wrre agog yesterday with a story about the stoppage of th< payment of a printing account by Coinptrollei Medlll.

Opposition to It takes two lorms?one European, which la simple, direct ab olition, effected, if need be. by compulsion; the other American, which seeksto arrest the African slave trade, and resist the entrance of domestic slavery into territory where it Is yet unknown, while It leaves the disposition of existing slavery to the considerate action of the States by which It I I n <u4 im ivtaiuru. It la the Union tbat restricts the opposition to slavery In this country within these limits. If dissolution prevail, what guarantee shall there he against the full development here of the fearful and uncompromising hostility to slavery which elsewhere pervades the world, and of wnich the recent Invasion of Virginia was an illustration? Practically, the loss of safety involves every other form of public calamity Dissolution would extinguish the greatness of our country. If separate confederacies could ex 1st and endure, they could preserve no share of the common prestige of the Union. The stars, whether scattered widely apart or grouped in smaller clusters, will *hed forth feeble glimmer ing and lurid lights. Nor will great achievement* be pcssible for the new confederacies Dissolu tion would signalize its triumphs by acts of wan tonness which would shock and astound the world.

How could our auccesaors proaecute these noble objects in the midst of brutalizing civil conflict?

What lelaure will thv citizen find for atudy, or Inven tion, or art, under the reign of conscription; nay, what interest in them wifi society feel, when fear and bate shall have taken possession of the na tlonal mind?

Tbe case ll different however, in regard to tbe other subjects which I have brought in this con n tlnn tltlfl As uruiivu uvtwiv iui? ij?iia?V' Beyond a doubt, Union Is vitally important to the republican citizens of the United States, but it is Just as Important to the wbele people. Repub licanism ana Union are, tbermre, not convertible terms. Republicanism is subordinate to Union, as everything else is and ought to be?republican Ism, democracy, every other political name and tblny; all arC subordinate?and they ought to dis appear in the presence of the great question of l<nlon. 80 far an I am concerned, it shall be so : it should be so If the question were sure to be tried aa It ought only to be determined, by the peaceful ordeal of the ballot. it shall be so all the more since there is on one side preparedness to refer it to the arbitrament of civil war. I have such faith In this republican system of ours, that there Is no political good which I desire that I am not content to s*ek through Its peaceful formsof administration with out Invoking revolutionary action If others shall Invoke that form of action to oppose and over throw government, they shall not. so fir aa Jt de pends on me, have the excuse that I obstinately left invself to be misunderstood. In such a case 1 can afford to meet prejudice with conciliation, exaction with concession which surrenders no principle, and violence with the right hanu of peace. Therefore, sir. so far as the abstract question whether, by th? Constitution of the (J nlted States, the bondsman, who is made such by the laws of a State, is still a inan or onlv property. I am*>r that, within that State, ita laws on that subject are supreme; that when be has escaped from that State into another, the Constitution regards him an a bondsman who may not, by any law or retru lation of that, be discharged from his service, hut ahall be delivered up, on claim, to t* i party to whom his service is due. When prudence and justice would combine in i>ersiiading you to modify the acts of Congress on that subject, so as not to oblige private persons to assist in their execution, ana to protect freemen from being, by abuse of the laws, carried into sla-' very, 1 agree that all laws of the States, whether free States or slave States, which relate to this class of persona, or any others recently coming from or resident in other States, and which laws contravene the Constitution of ihe United States, or any law of Congress passed in conformity thereto, ought to be repealed Domestic slavery, existing in any State, is wisely left by the Constitution of the United States exclusively to the care, management, and disposition of that State; and if it were in my power, 1 would not alter the Constitution in that respect. If misapprehension of my position needs so strong a remeiiy, I am willing to vote for an amendment of the Constitution declaring that it shall not, bv any future amendment, be so altered as mj coiut uu lyuujiicM a |x)v?n 10 auuiisu or in terfere with slavery in any State While I think that Congress has exclusive and sovereign authority to legislate on all subject* whatever, in the cnn.mon territories of the United States; and while I certainly shall never, dlrecily or indirectly, give my vote to establish or sanction slavery In sucn territories, or anywhere else in the world, yet the question what constitutional laws shall at any time be passed in regard to the terri-' tories. is, like every other question, to be deter mined en practical grounds I voted for enabling acts in the cases of Oregon, Minnesota, and Kan sas, without being able to secure in. them such provisions as I could have preferred; and yet I voted wisely So now, 1 am well satisfied that under existing circumstances, a happy and satisfactory solution of the difficulties lu the remaining territories would be obtained by similar laws, providing fur the organization, If sucn organization were other wise practicable. If, therefore, Kansas was ad mitted as a State, undxr the Wyandot constitu tion. as I think she ought to be, and if the or ganic laws of all the other territories could be repealed. I could vote to authorize the organiza tion of two new States which should include them, reserving the right to effect sub-divisions of them, whenever necessary. Into several conve nient States; but 1 do not find that such reaerva 1 tiona could t>e constitutionally made Without them, the ulterior embarrassments * which would result from the hasty incorporation of States of such vast extent and various interests and character would outweigh all the immediate [ advantages of such a measure But If the measure 1 ware practicable, I should prefer a different course, namely: when the eccentric movements I or secession and disunion shall have ended In I whatever form that end may come, and the angry - excltementa of the hour ahall have subsided, and 1 calmness once more shall have reaumed its acctis i tomed sway over the public mind, then, and not until then?one, two, or three years henc?? 1 i should cheerfully advise a convention of th< people, to be assembled in purauance of the Con ' stitutlon, to consider and decide whether ar.y and r what amendmenta of the organic nitlotia'l law e ought to be made. i A republican uow?as 1 have heretofore been t i member of other parties existing In my day?] e nevertheless bold and cherish, as 1 have alwayi done, the principle that this government exists it r its present form only by the consent of the gov i erned, and that it is as necessary as it is wise. t< resort to the people for revisions of the organii r law when the tioubies and dangers of the Stat I* Obft 4lnlir trunc^Ah/l tVi* nnwars A l.1 A \... ?* *.

Perfect aa It t(, It ought ti be expected that It will, at least aa often aa ono In a century, require tome modification to adapt It to the changta of society and alternations of em plre. I hold myaelf ready now, as heretofore, to vot for any properly guarded laws which shall b deemed necessary to prevent mutual Invasions o StaU s by citizens of other States, and punishihos who shall aid and abet them Notwithstanding the arguments of the gallan Senator from Oregon, (General Lane,) 1 rernali of the opinion that phyalcal bonds, such aa higb ways, railroads, rivers, and canals, are vastl more powerful for holding civil communitif togetber than sny mere covenants, though writte on parchment or engraved upon Iron I remai therefore, constant to iny purpose to secure, I possible, the construction of two Pacific railway! one of which shall connect the porta around th mouths of thn Mississippi, arid the other the town nn lk> ?/l I- 1 1<U .L? 1? ? vu *uv i?i ipovuii mm ?uc, wjvu VUC UOTUOI on oar Western coast.

We must b content to lead when we can, and to follow wbe we cannot lead; and if we cannot at any time d for our country all the good we would wish, w must be satisfied with doing for her all the goo that we can. I shall lend to the government my best supitoi In whatever prudent yet energetic efforts it stia make to preserve the public peace, and to mail tain and preserve the Union; advisinir, only, thi It practices as far as possible, the utmost moden tlon, forbearance, and conciliation We already have disorders, snd violence ha negun etui my riitb in tbe Constitution and 1 the Union abides, because my faith In ttie wlsdoi and virtue of tbe American people remain* ui shaken Coolness, calmness, and resolution ar elements of their character.
