But we deny to the 1-edt ral (government aU right to interfere with iia existence in those State, where it ha" a1e?al ex i! tence; We deny to the citizens of the Free any moral right to prescribe those of the Southern States because they are Slave holders We feel certain that Slavery is agseat mistake as well as a wrong?that i t curses and impoverishes those States changing th. ir natural fertility to barrenneM We mean to show this from time to time to the Smith ii thi y will hear us ; if not, the lattlt will n?e k Z". >' ?"? ???. were out of the way, we should have aangume hones of a apeedy change of opinion and ol atti tude ob Una subject in the States still laborina uo" der the inoaioolthle eviis of Hum BoM&gif But while we insiat on the right of the Slave holding States to be exempt from any other inter ference wi'h theii institutions, save by argument and the force of opinion, we insibt also that the oouth shall respect the opinions and feelings pro per to the North. Let our Southern lriends argue to ub that Slavery is right and Free Labor wrong; let them bring forward their cogent facia and argu ments; we will hear all candidly and in good tem >er, as we ask them to hear us on the other side, if they should convince us, we will Irankly admit the force ol their reasonings. We claim nothing that we will not cheerfully concede; we will do nothing that we would complain ot if done on their part. But should we, or any one, atk them, while holding their present opinions, to undertake to involve our common Federal Government in a course of measures intended to overthrow Slavery, the South would have just right to complain ol n flagrant invasion of the spirit and intent of the Federal compact. So Bhall we complain?so ought the Free States aaone man to remonbtrate?against any engagement ol the Federal Government in action calculated to extend, fortify and perpetuate Human Slavery under the flag of the United States The Federal Government has no rightful power to do any thing ol the kind. Whoever asks it in vokes the government to commit a gross usurpation. Is the Annexation ot Texas calculated, intended to strengthen, extend and fortify Slavery T This is a plain question. Can any well-informed man really doubt that the aflirinative is the true an swer 1 We cannot. The unbroken evidence of history and of daily transpiring events is stronger thau any possible array ot logic. The champions of eternal Slavery, the advocates of Universal Freedom, all the world over, instinctively recog nize their respective positions on this question. John C. Calhoun end John Quincy Adams? Mc Duftie and Slade?these names alone would tell the story, ltely on it that Slavery and Freedom are not both utterly blind as to the bearings of the Texas Question. What, men, means all this afterthought of the apolo gist* of annexation that the success ol their project would lead to the speedy abolition ol slavery throughout the old slave State* 7 It mean* simply that the black pill must be mgared, or at least floured, over for some Noith ern throat*. It ia a chtat which every one see* through who can see through any thing ; and none more clearly than it* author*, slavery will exist in any and evory region, so far as it* existence depend* on the will of that region, juit so long a* it shall seem to be profitable?not a day longer. Where it has exhausted the virgin itrength of the soli, it will exist just so long as a market ahall be afforded elsewhere for it* annual surplas of fl^sh and blood. When that market closer the end ol slavery is nigh at hand. If Napoleon had abolished slavery in Louisiana Torty-lour years ago, and it had never been re established in that vast region, slavery must have died out of Virginia and Maryland ere this time. But let us annex a new tropxsl region, fitted to be overrun with slavery, every twenty year* lor the next century, and wo believe slavery will continue to curse Virginia to the and of that century. But, say* an apologist, Slavery exist* in Texas, even without annexation. True, it has a sort ol footing there, but it is a diseased, deareplt, tottering existence. It is confined to a small corner of the Texas which appears on themsp. It cannot extend itself boldly southward, west ward or northward, lorthebeat of iea*on*. The slave who runs away from that small corner to any other part of the world become* at once a free man. He is free in the United State*, or on board any of our vessels out ol the water* of Texas. With annexation, ail thi* would be changed, and our national veasel* and even our free State* would be turned into (lave catchers and slavehold er* for Texas. Probably free citizen* of 'he Northern State* would be put in jail at Galveston and sold (if un claimed) on account of their color. Sbtll it be so? But wo deny that Slavery has any rightful existence in Texa*. ft ha* once been legally and explicitly abo lished there. It has been smuggled into a new existence, but it ha* just as much legality as the confinement of a a pirate'* prisoners. In thi* respect it differs radically from Slavery in our own Slave States. Why shall we take this heavy load on our own skoulders? But it is urgxd that the condition of the slave* in our Northern Slave States would be meliorated by their re moval to Texas ! There i* not a negro from the Cheia paako to the Sabine so stupid that this story ceuld be im posed on him for truth, or any thing like it. ft is notori ous, alike to freemen and slaves, that bondmen have the hardest life of it precisely where they are most profita ble to their owners. Who does not know that a Louisia na Sugar or Alabama cotton plantation is the oeaseless horrorof the negroes of Virginia and Kentucky 7 The average life of a Virginia slave would be deemed one of ease and luxury by the great mass of plantation negroes on the Mississippi- . As to the matter of additional power to the Slave States, it seem* to u* unimportant when compared with the great moral and social aspects of this subject. We are not afraid of the power of the Slave State*, tor we are not addicted to weighing and balancing Kree against Slave State*. But that Anuexation would greatly in crease the Slave Power?that it is sought on this express ground?we have mountain* of evidence. The disposi tiou to grasp for power on thi* pound seems to us more dangerous than the power itser. And when we see it urged on the other side that the Northern States would not consent to admit a slave State unless a Iree State were ready to be admitted along with H, we see that the danger is Indeed great and immiuent. Suppose Texas, annexed as a Territory, were to claim adr?U?ion as a State and they should combine to resist it, saying, " You must wait till we can make a Northern State to balance you"? how would the South regard this 7 How long would the Union stand the strain of such collision* 7 We know no tenable ground on which the adtniss ion of a Sta e can be refused or postponed extraneous from its own intrinsic fitness to assume and maintain the position of a member of the Confederacy. But this article is growing too long. Briefly, then, we stand on the ground of opposition to the Annexation ol Texas so long as a vestige of slavery shall remain within her borders. It is with us no question of less or more : we csnnot consent to become a party to a great wrong or a small one And if slavery in Texas were abolished to-morrow, and the South should then object to Annex ation, (as she probably would.) we should oppose it as heartily as now. The Federal Government is out of its orbit whenever it angsge* in measures calculated te strengthen one portion ol the Union ut the expense of the other. We are happy to learn that, in accordance with sugges tionsand information furnished by the Consul General of Texas, Mr. Kennedy, the British Government has, through the appropriate department, published a new end correct chart ofthecoast of Texas. Wo have frequently, however, called attention te the fact, that the navie* both of the United States and Great Britain were supplied with charts of thi* coa*t which are either erroneous or defec tive in the most important particula-s. In some of these charts the harbor of Galveston is laid down at least a de Jree to the we*t ot the true position ; in other*, of older ate, but until recently, and perhap* in *ome ca*e* even yet, in u*n, it i* not laid down at all, and the exsat posi tion we beliave i* not given by any of the chart* most commonly in use, published prior to our revolution.? From these incorrect charts, from the employment of some bad navigators as masters of vessels, and of bad ves Me!*, several English ships have been lost on our coast, and great difficulty h** of late been experienced in effect, ing insurance, to Texas in England. The publication of thi* chart, giving a correct representation of thei onst, will, we hope, contribute materially towards removing this difficulty. There is one other measure that might be adopted, contributing to the safety of approaching our port, and the consequent reduction of the rate ol inau ranee, as well as to the preservation of life and property. We mean the e?tahli?h*nent of a light at the entrance of the harbor. Thi* measure could be effected and support ed by a tax upon vessels, without increasing the present cost of freights, and the expense would, we believe, be cheerfnllv borne and regarded as money well expended by the owners of vessels. Legislation in Vekmont.?The Legislature of Vermont hus passed an act for the geological sur vey of the State, an act abolishing the military system, so far as rrgsrd* the enrolled militia: an act relating to deal ers in spirituous liquors, to innkeepers,kc., providing for the election of th-eo commissioners of each county, in themonth of January,to hava control of thi* subject of license; an act modifying the act of 1849, relating to capi tal punishment, to that sentence of death should not be executed short of one year, and making it the duty of the judge to order execution within three mouths after the year. _ Population or St. Louis.?According to the census taken under the direction of the State, the county of St. Louis ha* a population of 47,009 souls; the city S4 140 In the city there are 17,340 white males, and 14,289 white femal-a The number of free perron* of color in the county i* 693; tho total number of *laves 1* I 4,613.

The second session of the Twenty-eighth Con gress begins next Monday. On Tuesday the last annual message of President Tyler will probably be delivered. We have compiled a table of the members of the present national legislature; and also, so far as was iu our power, of the Twenty-ninth Congress. It will be seen that the complexion ot the next Senate is pretty well known, but what majority the demo crats may have in the House is not yet ascertained, as there are eighty-eight members to be elected. It is fair to suppose that they will have a majority but not as large a one as exists in the present Con gress. American Legislature JOHN TYLER, JAMES K. POLK, President of the U. Stain.

Mr. W. in thu courae of his statement, went an to sty that he would be able to show justltiiition for the alleged ilander, by proof of the fact | of arrcit for the charge contained in the declaration, and produced l'orlkat purpose the following witness .? IsiACCocxtrAiR, iwor.i, examined Djr Mr. Wilson.?I am a police officer; I arrested Mr. Crommelin on the charge . , Mr Bbadv.?Stop awhile. What do you mean to prove by this witness ? Mr. Wilson ?The fact of Mr. Crommelin having been arretted on the charge a* alleged. Mr. Bbadv.?You can't introduce such testimony. Mr. Wilson ?I am entitled to introduce it by the Eng. liih law*. Coobt.?Not bv our law*. Mr. Wilson.?I am aware that I can't nut in n plea of |unification, to the extent that would oblige me tochurge the nctual committal of the murder. I would not lie *uch t fool a* that, altogether ; but I um entitled to introduce what will bear directly upon the case, and show by this witness that he wa* actuully airested. Mr. Bbadv ? You have no right to introduce such t< ali mony. Even a newspaper, on taking up n mere >t parte statement, and not reporting the same in full and giving the leading facts, could be held liable. Mr Wilson.?I contend that I am entitled fo prove the Justification by shewing the fact of the arreit. I Coitbt.?The lact of the arre*t, or any moh charge, does not justify the utterance of a slander. Mr Wilson cited 8 Wendell in support of hi* position, and read the letter of Mr. Crommelin, showing the ad million, by the plaintiff, that the witnesses varied in their statements as to the express words The variation in the to timony, at to the fact of whether defendant had said in Court that Crommelin waa "actually engaged" in the murder, or that be had been "arretted nn the charge," entitled him to put in the fact of the arrest, on the charge at juitification. I Court?We are bound to go according to the interpre tation of thewitneti, showing the tine Import and mean ing of the word* used, which have beeu distinctly pro ven by the first witnes* Mr Wilson?I do not mean to introduce such testimo ny in justification, hut in mitigation of damage*.

I am one of the justices in New York, end I wax in July last; I recollect a case tried in filly latt,in which the Corporation was plaintiff, and that the plaintiff w in u ft li nes* ; I do not recollect particularly that It wnxthe case alluded to, but it wbj in some case during the inmmer ; does remembers atiit aga'nst Mr Laforge in favor of the Corporation; I do not remember any disturbance during the trial by which butinei* wa* impended.

Alderman Born called, but not answering, the defence rested. Mr Wilion sum mod up and wa* followed by Mr. Bba dv, who defined the character of slander, dwelling parti cularly on the manner in which ex parte statement* found their way into the newipapeit; be contended that every report furniihod to the ptpei* by the Police Reporters rendered the papers liable in law, Iieing purely ex parte statement*, the truth or untruth of which the partiei had no fair opportunity of atcertaining. and the Journals were therefore liable, aa they reported inch case* at their ritk. . The Cot a i charged strongly in favor of the plaintifl, against whose character r othing had been imt forward to justify the slanderous chaises w Inch had been utteied against him. The law was always most jealous of the truth in all cases, and particularly In caaea of alander ; *nd in the pretent case there was no attempt made to jus tify. The question therefore wu* not to contider whether or not the plaintiff wa* entitled to damagea bat to estimate the amount they should give. After dwelling on the po sition and circunsatsrices of the parties?defendant being * truckman, the Court concluded, and directed the jnry to render a aealed verdict at I'i o'clock this day, when the Court adjourned.

Other witnesses, and Behan himself, who has not yet recovered lrosii the injuries, proved the brutality of the assault. Kor the defence, it was shown that Michael Hays and Quinn interfered after the row commenced, as it was urgad lor the put|>o>e of separating them.

The complain ant was a stout, hearty looking man, and gave his teati mony something in the following style:?" I was aatand ing about the l(Uh of August last, at the corner of Caroline street, opposite the store of Mr*, lngal hoof and her husband, where she kept athrowing out musk melons, and spattered me with mud: 1 was told to look out, when she hove one out of the door, and hit ma right ill the side. 1 said 1*11 make you suffer for th:s, when she called her husband, and they both tackled of me, and the hit me a blow in the teeth, and cut me inside the mouth and on the lip. Counsel?Sho tluew out these melons, did she 7 Witness?Yes, the did. Counsel?And do yen mean to swear that one of them struck you on the side 7 Witness?Yes, I do. Counsel?

Hough, with stealing a small saw, worth only a trifle. A. witness also testified that he saw her with the aaw in her hand in the More while Mr. Hough waa engaged aeil ing. and after asking the book keeper the price, she han dled the handle ol the saw a good deal, ana finally put it under her cloak, where it wus found before she (alt the store.

Recobder ? She had better have paid for it then, be fore she concealed it under her cloak. Terhonk,?But, your Honour, let us state thecaae? Fhn had this saw in her hand, and I presume that she had the same clonk on that she has now, and it accidentally slipped round and covered it; quite unintentional on her part, 1 have no doubt.
