The Krtc Soil Rlovcni4-iit_Dniigcroua Ten* 1 demy. j We understand that a number of ugitators, formerly belonging to both parties, but row united on the slavery and free soil question, intend to , 1 call a mass meeting of the people of this city in the Park, probably on Thursday, for the purpose of making a demonstration in opposition to the new compromise bill now before the Senate of the United States, in reference to the introduction ol | slavery into CaJitorniu and New Mexico. This movement, and the excitement attending ! it, are no more than what we had every reason to I p expect, judging from the developements that have 1 a been making in the Northern States during the I ^ last tew months. The proposition introduced into j the Senate, under the auspices of Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Clayton, whether it pass or not, will receive ( unmitigated opposition from a considerable and an 1 increasing jiortion of the old factions in the Nor- J them States, formerly calling themselves wliigs ( and democrats, including all the old abolitionists. The movement is increasing every day through the North. It was originally commenced as u 1 political agitation, about four years ago, und at the j first onset it >vas discovered that 111 the free States the abolition candidate for the Presidency, Mr. j Birney, had sixty thousand votes. Since that lime, urisir.g Iran many cuuses, the excitement { has increused ; the discontented among the whigs anrl have none over: and more recently. Mr. Vau Burm, with all his personal and ixditicnl ( adherents in Mew York iiud the .North, lias joined , the same cause?not f rom any patriotic or humane feelings towards the blacks?for Mr. Van Buren 1 never had any such feelings towaids any color? i but solely out of revenge towards the democratic j paity, because they did not nominate him for the Presidency, worth ?100,000 in four years, instead ^ of General Cass, who is now before the country. The friends of Mr. Clay?strong and warm as I they ever have been?tire thrown into the same condition by the nomination of Gen. Taylor in c Philadelphia. The abolition cause 111 the M'ortlu ii has, therefore, during the last year, or rather j t during the last few months, increased in intensity, o in breadth and in depth, far beyond what it has ever j J reached since the establishment of the republic, a Formally years past the two organized parties? whigs and democrats?have been contributing to Y build up a reputation for several great men, such m as Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren, John McLean, re and many others. The friends and supporters of fr these men havinL' been disappointed in the recent di nominations in Baltimore and Philadelphia, are w now endeavoring, under the mantle of the popu- v< larity created for them, to disorganize all the old o: parties, and to create a new pally?a party that ir may lead to the most momentous consequences, .1 affecting the durability of this Union, and the link tc that yet binds the Southern to the Northern States, ai These distinguished individuals, whose reputa- y, lion and popularity have been made for them by a their friends and by popular suffrage, seem, in a N moment of disappointment, to have thrown aside o all the feelings of patriotism which formerly controlled them, and to have engaged in the unwhole- c some business of creating excitement, and forming h a union on an isolated question of abstract hu- n inanity, which, if it reach a certain point, will as- fi suredly lead to a separation of the North from the ri fcfoutli, and to all the disasters that might be ex- 1 peeled to follow from such an event. We n<ver e will accuse Mr. Van Ilurcn, of Kinderhook, of pa- J triotism; for his whole life has exhibited nothing 1 but an utter disregard of every thine but his own r personal interests and personal advantage. If a there ever was a sellish politician on this side of t, eternity, lit is the embodiment of such a one : and t yet, f;om the popularity and position which lie has heretofore acquired, he may become one of the most important personages of this country, a re- i garde the late of the republic now c died the p United States. t The agitation of this que-uon in the Senate and c in the House of Representatives only increases ! t the movement among the jieople of the North. < The bill which is called the compromise, nnd which was introduced by Mr. Clayton, is very ge- r nerally objected to lor its cowardly character, f eitheroutlay orthe other. The people are getting t excited on this subject, and are leaving the usual t topics of a Presidential election almost ulone and p solitary. Tip mnss meeting called on Thursday S next in this city,will only increase the excitement, . Ii and spread rt throughout the North, until the great v convention meets at Bullalo, in the month of Au- 1 tl _ gust next" ^That body will then have the whole 11 -field-before thetn, with all this agitation to urge ; v them on; and the probability is, according to all e appearances, thut the nomination which they may ! ii put forth, will carry a inuch greater weight, and . I have u heavier force, than the two old parties j h imagine. We hear it said, also, that Mr. Van Bu- j s ren, notwithstanding his nomination by lite Utica t convention, will probably be set aside in the 13uf- ! s falo meeting, and that most likely John McLean, ot Ohio, may lie adopted?a man whose character i and reputation are less liable to the charge of selfishness and ingratitude, than that of Mr. Van Bu- t ren. Whatever nomination be made then, we much fear, from every thing we ?ee taking pi ice around us, thut the convention In meet at Buffalo , ' f will lead to result* of the inost extraordinary im- ' portancr to the future union and happiness of these 1 ' feutcs No one seems now to care much lor the , ' usual Presidential election?they arc waiting for ' the action at Buffalo. Thing* begin to look as if 1 I the next < 1m Hon i<u the Presidency were to |?c thrown info th< House of Representatives. lnt(-ltlg? nsiI Im : n*.?The (adJMH BsriNtMII IK to koM 1 > .Sale (Joavcuttonat Indianapolis on the Jill) ttjef. 1 M ismasaqkmknt oc the Mails.? For ihe nine- I l-ninth time w<- fin<i ourselves compelled to write 11 article with tl is heiidin ? because it is ur choice, but because Cave Johnson h:is aetully, a|?art from the Union at Washington, found d apologist for tlte remissness, carelessness and leglect which has characterised the Post Office >P?riinent since he assumed the direction of hat brunch of the government. This apologist is he organ of the hunkers, in this city, in which > l>er un article appeared yesterday, evidently vriiten for the express purpose of deceiving the >ublic 111 the premises, by giving them to understand that the complaints which we have over and igain made, are dictated by hostility towards the i'ostniuster General, more than by cases of his leghct. The insinuation is false, palpably false. In answer to the assertion that our complaints were so often repeated last fall, that Cave Johnson directed the Postmaster at New York to look into the subject, and inform the Department; that this tvus done for some months, when it appeared that thirty-one papers and two bundles were misdirect [ (] by those employed in the office ol the Herald, ,ind nineteen letters were nddieseed to the editor i)f this l'ujier, informing hint of these irregularities in our office?we have a word to say. It appears [hat this looking into the subject was continued for several months, with the above result; part of w hich may be true, for we have no means of contradicting it; but j?art of which we boldly assert is false. Two bundles, containing from five to ten rapers each, were not misdirected at this office ; an the contrary, for we recollect the circumstance perfectly well, one of them was misdirected at the >ost-offiee in this city, and it occurred in this way. It was directed to Augusta, Georgia; we believe w as broken by the severe handling which it received in the New York post office, and some one >f (lie uttaclics of that establishment undertook to eplace the cover injured; and, in doing so, misook the Augusta mentioned in the original label, tnd directed it to Augusta in some other Stute, or o Augusta, in purgatory, for all the good it did us ir our subscribers. So much, then, for the assertion that this number if mistakes were discovered after a careful examnation lor several months ; but what has this to lo with the broad assertion which we heretofore unde, and now reiterate, that the Post Office Delaitment never has been so badly conducted as it las been during Air. Cave Johnson's reign! We opt at it; and because Mr. Johnson, through hisor*an, asserts what he tells us is the result of a care"ul examination, namely, the discovery of acer:ain number of mistukes, half of which we have 10 means of denying, but the other half of which ve have mpart proved to belong to the Post Office; ve will detail the uumber of complaints which we lave received for the present month of July, a lortion of which is not yet expired, giving dates nd localities:? latavia, N.

Now here are the complaints which we have reeived for the month ol July alone, (part of which s unexpired) and can it be said that we charge he Postmaster General with carelessness with- J ut cutise ? We care nothing whether Cave I ohnson or his subordinates are to blame. It is I 11 the same to us and to our subscribers. As to the assertion that the Postmaster of New ork has written to us several times in some onths, we cheerfully acknowledge that we have ceived in the last ticclvc months, u lew letters om him of the character mentioned; but that oes not interfere with the general principle e contend for, particularly when he discourt ns tie nsnert* itiirtv.tlirsc mistaken in nnr Ilice in some months, while we find on file i our office twenty-three complaints received in uly, and thirty-two in June, less than two months, ? say nothing of the twenty letters, or therebouts, relative to lost subscription money, which e placed in the hands of Mr. Holbrook, the special Cent of the Post Office department, on the 21st mst. lor docs it weaken the assertion that wc have so lien made. We have a great mind to bundle off all those ompluints to Cave Johnson himself, to convince i111 of his incapacity to hold the office of Post mister Cencrul, together with the bushel basket nil of the same sort which we received in the nonths of March, April, and May. We really beieve that if we were to collect all the letters of oniplaint received at the Herald ollice since Cave ohnson has been at the head of the department, 11 one pile, and set fire to thorn, they would illuninate the country f rom this city to Washington, jid throw more light on ihe mismanagement of he Poet Ollice than any thing else. We may do his some day, perhaps on the 1th of next March. Sympathy for Ireland.?Put a short time since he whole community was deeply interested, aplarently, for the welfare of the oppressed and do wnroddeu peo| le of Ireland; and all manifested a Imposition to assist them in their escape from the hraldom of monarchy. That feeling has almost ntirely subsided. At one time there vsns a large amount of money aised, but what disposition was made of it we lave not been able to learn ; but without that, the line is fast approaching when that j>eople will rise n their strength, and break the chains of drs otism which have so long and firmly hound them. Jonie of their best and most patriotic men have ieen condemned and sent to a distant prison, while their children and families are left to brook lie insult thus cust upon tliein. The great leaver - ai work, and though the eagle eyes of British als are closely watching them, the work goes in ihntlvnnd surelv The harvest niuirnnrhcs nd with it the deadly struggle lor liberty. The irm determination of those who are fully able to ippreciate their country's wrongs is gathering itrongcr and stronger, until the time arrives to deiurc the severance of the bond which binds them, md liberty he sown broadcast over the island. If the ipirits are true, and defend boldly their ights, they can sing?"The harvest is past, the nminer is ended, ami we are saved from the j rani's power." \RR1VA1. OK THE f5!

GENEUAT. TAYIX>R AMI HIS ACCEPTANCE OF TUB Nomination?For some wot-ks past, th?* whigs have been in a state of terrible excitement, on account of their not having received un answer from Crucial Ta)lor to the Icitercoimnunicating to liim the fact nl his having been nominated by lite whig national convention at Philadelphia, as their candidate lorthe Presidency. Various were the conjectures as to the cause of the delay, and many were the rumors which were afloat concerning the mutter. The whole difficulty, however, is now explained. It ap|ieurs that the old General has been harrassed almost to dcuih, and his change most unwarrantably drawn upon for postage, by the dirty lioliticians of the day, in every part of the country. The old general got tired of this impudence, and concluded to let all letters sent to him, except those eonnnir from friends whose writing be re cognised, go to their proper place?the dead letter office at Washington. A whole bundle, numbering some forty-eight, reached that destination in this way; but it unfortunately happened that the letter informing him of his nomination was among them, lie accordingly applied lor the return, to the poet office at New Orleans, of the whole batch, and when they shall have been received by him,we shall, no doubt, have his answer in a short time. The long agony is, therefore, nearly over, and we may shottly look for the answer. Ocean Steamers.?Our neighbors in Boston expect that the new steamer Europa, Captain Oott, will urrive at that i<ort at noon to-day, thus giving her a passage ol ten days ! Since the America came over in ten days and ten hours, the jieople of Boston have become more ; enthusiastic in iavor oi their steam |>ackets, as I they call the Cunurd steamers. They are so wild' ly delighted when an American steamer is beaten 1 by one of tlietn; thut no one would ever have supposed that the tea was thrown into Biston harbor on the eve ol the American revolution. The steamship United States, Captain Hack | staff, is now in her fifteenth day, if she sailed from | Havre on the 10th inst. It is thought that she did not leave on that day. City Intelligence. Thk Reception of the Voluntf.ers.?Thursday next, the 20th Inst., Is set apart for the reoeption of the New York Volunteers. A boat will leave Castle Garden at 10 o'clock, for Fort Hamilton, and the volunteers escorted to the city. They will be received on the Battery by his Honor the Mayor, at which time the flag borne by that gallant band through the hardfought battles of Me xico will be presented to the city. Medals provided by the Corporation will be presented ! during the day. Extensive arrangements aro making I to give them a grand reception, as alio to provide them ! with seme means to place them in as good a position as ' when they started. Several bands of music will be in I attendance, and all the military of the city will parade ! to welcome the war-worn soldiers to their homes, i Takoet Exclusion.?The Washington Guards, one j of the finest and best disciplined military companies of | the city, passed the tltrahl office yesterday afternoon, | on their return from a target excursion on Long Island, and tho perforated condition of the tarI get showed the accuracy of their aim. several balls having struck the centre mark. They were accom panied by a fine band of musio. An incident ocruried while they were passing the office, which it is a pleasure to record, and which ut once shows the truo | devotedness of woman's love and kindness. They were met by a lady at the corner of Nassau and Fulton ! streets, who pressed through the crowd attending them. 1 until she found her husband. to whom she handed h . light glazed cap. knowing that the heavy uu.forru ouo . worn was too much for the heat of the day. A more . pointed, yet dimple instance of woman's true character, I was* never witnessed. Uud bless the ladies ! Jkkkkraon (ii'ard?This corps returned tothecity j about six o'clock yesterday afternoon, from Fortieth { street, where they had spent the day in an annual ! drill They are a liobb looking set of men, and well| disciplined. A Nohle Act ok Hcm.ixitv ?On Saturday evening j lust, one of the most heroic acts of humanity was pcr' fornu d by Caleb Lyon. Ks.j., of I.yousdale. A little girl about six years of age. by the name of Margaret McCoy, was playing on the llattery, near Castle Harden, and by some accident fell over where the water was very deep She had risen to the surface several times, I but then sunk to ilie bottom. udU the place where she lay wasonly indicated by the bubbles which rose to the suiface. Mr. Lyon was told that a little child was over, lie immediately plunged in where the bubbles rose, and descended to the bottom, bringing up the child in his arms, and conveyed her to the shore.? V lieu lie reached the shore he discovered that life was , almost extinct, and immediately procuring some st.umlauts, applied them effectually, and the child was ; soon resided 10 her parents, with such expressions of joy as to affect to tears those standing near. This gentleman, who is well know n to the community us a mail of great worth, has also shown himself a philanthropic t in performing an act worthy of the man. Tin lti?? riontJT i.v L'soaowat.?The work of lay ing the liuss pavement in broadwsy, was resumed yesterday morning, uud with the same spirit in which tlie late work was done. Already has one block of the old paving stones been removed, and the foundation undergoing a preparation for the reception of the sqnure blocks If the weather should prove favorable, the whole work to Vetey street will be completed about the last of September, when Broadway, between Iteade and Vcsey streets, will preseut the most beautiful piece of paving in the world, and the-advantage derived will so toon be discovered. that probably before two year? shall have passed. all ibat part of the great thoroughfare between I'nion Square and Bowling Green will be laid with the ltuss paveraent. Tiir. U'hthi h.-The excessively hot weather still continue?, and. if anything, seem? to be increasing. A csti rday was one of the most opprcsslv e days of the season. and there wan not the slightest probability of a change. Finn.?A fire broke out about two o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the stables situated at the corner of Seventh avenue and Twelfth street, all of which were destroyed They occupied nearly one-tbird of the ; whole block, and were occupied principally by rartmen, who had a quantity of hay and feed stored in the lofts, which was also destroyed The property belonged to a .Mr. Palmer. and was ni t insured !

He was taken home, where he died in an hour after. Srt'Rinus Bill* Foind.?A small boy found on Sunday. secreted in tonic bushes near 05th street, on First avenue, a tquare gluts bottle containing some $500 or $000 in spurious bills ou various bunks. With the bottle was also found a quantity cf bones, very like the bones of a man. and a pair of overalls. How they came there is a mystery yet unexplained.

Chatham Thkat*?.?Mr Chanfrau's complimentary benefit, last evening, was ijuite a brilliant affair; the house was crowded throughout, and the utmost hilarity and satisfaction was evident among the audience. Mr. Chmnfrau must have been highly gratified at the very handsome manner in whieh the public supported this benefit; and it is another mark of the great luvor he has met with in the eyes of his patrons, nud also of the estt em in which he is held by his professional brethren. Kvery actor did his best, and we do not know that we have ever seen the comedy of the "Honeymoon" better performed. Mr. J. Stark, Lester. Chaufiau. Mrs. Ilield, Miss Mestajrer.nnd Mrs. McLean, all appeared in it. and acted most capitally.

An iSla I benefit as quite a blight era in his professional life. 1 To-night a most interesting and praiseworthy ulTair ' will vi me oil at the Chatham. It is the benefit winch Mr. C. has determined to give to our brave New York Volunteers, who have lately returned from .Mexico, lifter having achieved moat glorious deeds on the field of battle. They are. however, (to the lasting infamy of those whose duty it is to have provided for them, be ' it said) more stocked at preseut with glorious rcrnin'scencts of their undaunted deeds than with tin sc ' actual necessaries required to support life. Chaufrau, . and louuyof his friends, have determined that they will do their part to assist these brave fellows, anil ac- , cordingly this benefit has been projected, it will be a free benefit in every sense of the word, as every cent that is taken in will be appropriated to the volunteers, and the prices for tills occasion have been raised to fifty cents to tho boxes, and tweDty-five cents to the pit. A number of eminent performers have voluti| teered their services, vix. : Me-?rs. Lester, T. Ilbtkely, 1 J. Mark, Jacobs. Yates, and Kloreutini. Mrs. liield, Miss Vestnyer. the Kihlopesn hand of Southerners, and till the Chatham company. The performances will be varied, and appropriate lor the occasion?they will consist of the comedy of "the Soldier's Daughter." "My Aunt," 4,A lilance at New York." and the singing of a patriotic welcome to tbe volunteers. We ' have no doubt iliat tbe kind virorts of all these promtncnt actors will be crowned with success, and that nn : overfli wing bouse, and a good round sum in cash will be the result of this, the first true solid compliment to ; tbe returned New York Volunteers. Tbe Chatham | will be tie-ed after this evening, tojopen again, how- j ever, in a few weeks, redecorated, und arranged in tho ! mii't modern and approved style. Castle Oakce*.?Then1 is indeed no place in our J city where one may breathe air so pure, and be do- ( lighted with such a fine performance, as is presented at ' this place of amusement. .

Birtom's Tur.ATBr.?This central place of amuse- i mi nt was well attended last evening, to tee the new j I drama, in two acts, founded on Dickens's novel, and ] , written by Mr. Brougham, called " Dombey and Son," which was well sustained throughout by the ezcellont j | stock company engaged by the active and intelligent : n annger of this neat nnd comfortable little Thea're. .

Mr* Hughe* and Mrs. Brougham enacted their characters well, and the piece pa*-cd off with I gicat trial. '1 he beautiful farce of Personation" j followed, and.

Meeting of the Irish Itepnbllcnn Union. A meeting of this society was held last night, lursuant to notice, at the ynukepeare Hotel, 1 inane street, to hear their delegate, Mr. T. O'Connor, jive a report of his mission to Canada, und the progress he hud made there 111 carrying out the plans contemplated by the society for rendering assistance to Ireland. The meeting was very numeiously attended, and appeared to be influenced by the greatest enthusiasm. A small gallery opposite ine platform was occupied by a uumber of the fair sex, whose patriotic feelings prompted them to come forward to grace the proceedings by their presence. On the motion oi Mr. T. Mooney, Dr. Ryan, of Brooklyn, was called to the chair amidst loud cheers. The Chairman, on opening the proceedings, Raid that he felt highly complimented by the distinguished honor they bad conferred upon him In nl?nin? ),lm in .kel. f U t>iavru^ UilU 1 II MIV IjUft'l Ull tUHt OC C S SI O II. Ili> wan happy to inform them that the work In which they were engaged went gloriously on. The good cause whichjjtbey had at heart, appeared to prosper well undir the auspices of Messrs. O'Connor aud Mooney, the former of whom had just returned from Canada, and would shortly give them an account of the pri gress he had made in fullilling his mission. (Cheers ) They were told that difficulties lay in their way, and he did not dispute it; but with the tact, talent, and experience of these gentlemen he did not despair ot success. (Cheers.) The bayouet might glance, but it must not dismay them?the cannon might roar. it must not affright them?the falchion might Nash, but it must not unuerve them. (Loud cheers ) The combined powers of the world might be arrayed against them, but they must not be intimidated from carrying on the glorious business to which they had devoted themselves, despising the sneers of those who misinterpreted their motives, and Bpurning the censure of those who misunderstood the ohjeots which they wire bent on accomplishing. (Loud i cheers) They must not despair, for they would have ; the smiles of the good to encourage them ; and the \ consciousness of the rectitude of their intentions, ' and the lioliuess of the cause in which they were embarked, would be a sufficient reward to them for all the exertions they made. (Cheers ) When the goal at which they aimed was the independence of Ireland, it wi uld surely be admitted that the prize was worth contending for. When Belgium rose in bur might to shake off the fetters which kept her in bondage, few wore her chances of success. When the Low Countries sought iheir freedom from the oppressive yoke under which they were held in subjection, few would have ventured j to predict their liberation. When Tell raised his hand i to strike down the Austrian despot, who would bare ! promised a triumphant issue for his valor? (Loud { cheers ) Vet they succeeded. Heaven smiled on their daring, and paralv/.ed the arm of their onnmsnor? In our own adopted couu'ry. too, need be tell them that i the Mime glorious results followed.' and, notwiilistaudlug the fraud, the violence, and the odds Kngland brought to bear against them, her armies were broken, her mouareh disgraced, and her power annihilated. (Cheers.) Later still the example of France ought to encourage them, and show them that nations only require to be led in order to be free. Almost all rhriatendoui had strtiek for liberty, and surely Ireland's day was fust approaching When that day did would be either triumph or annihilation for ?ver; and he ardeutly hoped mat at the close of the i druggie the sun would shed his raja upon a nation of freemen. Dr. Itvau resumed his seat amid loud 1 sheers. Mr. O'C'onnok then came forward, and was very irurmly received, lie said he told them some time ago hat if Irish independence was to l>e achieved, it would dc necessary to attack Kngland in her own dominions; .0 beard the lion in his own den. (Cheers.) This was 1 bold step, and particularly for oue who had been her >wn subject? to preach republicanism among her own lenple. and the downfall of her own tlag upon her own loll. (Cheeers.) He went, liowever. to Canada for bat purpose, and he did so without disguise. He told hem there the object of his mission; and that he had iO.OOO Titles at hi* back. If necessary, to carry it into fleet. (Cheers.) Mr. O'Connor then proceeded to rive an account of the labors of Tapincau and Mr. ! S'clson. in the attempts they made some time ago to sllect Canadian independence, which were deVated. he contended, iu consequence of their | legending on their secret organizations. the | iroceedings of which were perfectly well known o Kngland. through her spies und informers. When I ie went to CaDnda. he knew these thin s, and ho , therefore sought no concealment, hut openly pro- j daiiued that Kngland's power was gone?that the pre- I >tige of her glory and greatness bad departed?aud j uai it wan oniy necessary ror tliofc wUo were undi-r if r subjection, to take courage, and they could tear ifr felon llag to tatter*. (Loud cheer* ) lie had no ;reat difficulty in finding an audience for these ruths. for 0000 ardent republicana. in a short lime ;athered round him and gave the moat unwisakeable demonstrations of the feeling* with that they regarded them. 11c had no fear* for himeIf. though he recriTed a plentiful amount of friendly idvice as to what the officer* of the Kngllsti governnent would do if he did not go away, lie ?>a well tware. however, that if he had been IflwUd an rish brigade of 50,000 men would soon cross the line*, ire every house in Montreal, and annihilate British >ower in Canada.

And a* there mis no lack in this country of the sinews of war. ho limself had little cause to be afruid. He received the nost marked attention from several gentlemen in ,'anada Colonel tiubee. ia* we understood him ) an uljutant general of the province of Lower Canada, tad received him with great kindness, and. in fact, very one with whom he cnme in contact told him hat they looked forward with pleasure to the tappy day when their country should become iart and parcel of the United State*. (Loud heers.) He was happy to say. too, that the love of nonarchy did not appear to burn with excessive intcn>ity in the heart* of the British soldiers, with whom ho ame in contact there. As he passed up Notre Dame treet, he faw 50 men of the 10th regiment of the line, md singular to say. every man of them took o(T h.s npasbe passed (Laughter and eheors ) To each if them he returned his sincere thank*, and he had no lesitation in saying that they were all good men and rue (Cheer* ) Now, of the lO.OuO troops which were tntioned there altogether, it was his firm belief that >ot more than 3000 of them would pull a trigg-r for England; and if to these be added 1000 mere Of ofllce.oldirstind person* directlv In the nnv of Uo.m.w.i hey would eurely bo poor specimens of Immunity if it t'W of th< ir >>ri|<atlw.x could not crush th-ni nil in a sin;ie week.

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE.

The speech of Mr. Corwin, particularly, is said to bo on overwhelming effort, stripping the whole subject of all extraneous mutter, and leaving the question in the naked form of the admission or exclusion of slavery, planting himself on the compact of 17W, in regard to the three territories, saying,, w th the fathers of the constitution he would loll General Worth and Staff have arrived at New Orleans.

W ARM ASD PHUTIICTM DEBATE os the TERRITORIAL ill. Tbo Territorial Bill wa? discussed in the Senate today from a quarter paat 12 to 0 o'clock. Mr IIai i:, of New Hampshire, offered an amendment to tbe bill, in favor of striking oat the words " froe whites,'' se as to allow all persons to vote in the Territory of Oregon.. Mr. CiARki: opened the discussion with a deliberate statement of the amendments he had moved, and which had been rejected in committee, of the protest he bad put in against the bill; and after stating that hie purpoie was to guard against the encroachment of slavery, especially In Oregon, he offered his amendments to tbe Senate. Mr. Miller objected to the bill in regard to its provisions for all tbe territories. It left an opening for tbe admission of slavery into Oregon, and expressly provides against its exclusion in California and New Mexico. You deny, said Mr Miller, tbe power of Congress over slavery, and yet you legislate to proteet and extend it; and anticipate the wishes of the Inhabitants and their determination, if loft to themselves, to prohibit slavery, by declaring that they shall not, in California and New Mexico, have any jurisdiction over tbe sutyect. lie objected to the hill, because it guarantees slavery in New Mexico and California, and noes not secure Oregon against its introduction. Mr. Piielm followed.
