Mr. W alias rejoined that it was void according to the decision of tbe committee, and that that was prop?-rly the question for the action of th* Sonata Mr -Hals: destrad on* word. Thar* was no aeowwlty for say ether proceeding than to inform tbe Uoe?raor of lil noie of the vacancy la thn 8*oat* by th* reeignation of Qonarnl Shields.

Mr. Hi sa supported tbe views of Mr Hale. Whatever wa may do now oan have no binding effeot upon tbe State of lllitoie And as for tbe necessity of n decision it is already mad* by the constitution. Mr Maoush argued, that this was not a qnsstlon of C*urt*->, hut a *onstltutlonal question. H* should rot* against th* resolution ?>f th* Senator from New Henipehire. and in favor of the report of the committee. If this election Is a nullity, taere Is nothing to rss'gn.

It would then appear that what la Crime facie a title Is do title at ail. aad that there ha* sen a vseeney from the 4th Marsh. He objected to th* rraointtou toneMng the raslgnatien, for it preaumistebaae the offloial action of the Ooveraorof IUlno a epon it, a* if the resignation vac a bona fide act of a o ember rightfully holding a seat. The true course wee to eot upon the repot t of the committee. Mr. Ri>x oootended that tbis esse vac, in point ef fact, ti e same aa the caae of a dead man, upon which there could be no possible neot-siitv of action The R-uetor b?? r'lliiird and there ie nothing upon which to not. and tber*foro no aotioa i? neceiearj Mr Downi in hi* uaoai animated atjie. pleaded the plea of Mr Dongtasa, Mr. Foote and Mr. Hala, and M>gg?rt-d that ? eourne of g"?Deroui notion wae ana to ?en.

Mr Diitus waa surprised at tbe excitement wbiob this question bad awakened There appeared nnottwin lor it at all it waa a simple question of tbe constitution nothing more; and tbere were Senators, and be among tbea. whose sympathies ware with Gen. Shields ; but the constitution admitted of no accommodation htie. He war astonished to bear the Senator from Illinois (Mr Douglass) say that tba Senate ap?tared resolved ta kick tba member out of this house. only wish the Senator from North Carolina had iaetsted upon his call to order. And if Gen 8blelde had been permitted to take the oonxse which hie own Jndgment dictated, mneh of thle trouble would have boon avoided What 1# tbe question?

Mr Fool k vaa glad to bear It. We are ot the came nee. We are both Impulsive; and what be eau excuse In ire, 1 can allow to kin. Mr Bl'tlib bore testimony to the great services of Gen.ttbitld* to tbe country, but appealed that the oentliluiional question here admitted of no aet of genrroatty except tbe act of adhering to Ita requleitleae. Mr Whitii-Question en tbe amendment. Mr Us ds swoon next teok tbe floor, la a cloce and ne'hrdiea) argument in support ef the view* of tbe minority?that tbe resignation of General Shield* did away with ibe necessity fur aay farther proceedings. He gave nay. at length to Mr Wcasitn. who moved that this subject bs laid as de tih te-morrow, and that tba Senate go into Executive session. 1 te moMon was loet?16 to 20. Mr. UnocawooD resumed end finished his argument ?tlat (ftmral Shields was admitted as a Senator; tba-,as susb be bad tbe right is resign; and that, in resigning, tba re was nothing else sft bat his resignation upon which to set. l'be election was voidable, buti otvild till so decided.

[From tho Now Or lea as Croeoent, March I ] We have received our (ilea ot Mexican papers to ihe 10th ult. We find by these papers that there is a very general impression pervading the publ.c mind that Santa Anna entertains a design of leturtiing to the republic. A primumaammto in his lavor had been made by one ot the officers ot Bustameuie'satany, which threatens t<>assume a formidable iharactet . El Monitor ot February 8d, tbue speaks ot the Santanista movement, in an article headed "Alert:"?"Tho tyrant?the vanquished in all hia encounters with tbe Americans, Gen Saata Anna, hasde'ermined to return to the republic. Be on the alert, then, Mexicans I dis before per* nutting this fatal man?this eause of ail our misfortunes and our humiliations before the enemy, to povnn us. To his vanity and inability alone, Scott owes all his triumphs." On the 2Mb of January, a revolution, headed by Diar. Norisga, broke out in the 8tate ot Jalisco; but it was discovered m time, and by the vigilance ot the Governor and Commandant General, it was soon suppressed. The rebellion of Temascalteuec has also lost its alarming character, and its leader, Estevan Leon, returned to hia alleiriance. On the 25ih of January, the Congress ot the State of Jaliaco closed its session. Petition* against the toleration of religious sects continue to come in.
