Ha was understood to tay. that from the remarks of the member from Maryland (Mr MeLane) in relation to the eompoaitlon of the eommlttae*. the free sailer* could not expeot to ba heard upon any committee, if tha member from Kmsacbusetta, (Mr. Winthrop) had been elected Speaker. They therefor* were justified In not voting for him. Mr. WiwTiisor eorreoted the gentleman In a matter of tact. The Committee* on Judiciary. District of Columbia. and Territories, were composed of flv* whig* and four democrat*. And owing to the death of one member and the absence of another, these oommlttee* stood In fact four to four. The gentleman from Maryland waa correct in stating that in the great committee ot Ways and Means and others, six whigs to three democrats had been piaeed. Ills predecessor. Mr Davis, ot Indiana, bad sat bim a preoedent. and ha did not know but such had been the rule since he (Mr. W.) bad beea a meteber of the House, now for ten years Another reanon for the course was probably to prevent, IbMHII the ah?ence of a member, the very state of sffalrs we now hava in the House, namely, a division, or an impossibility of action. Mr. McLsivi explained, that he did net in the leaat mean to reflect upon tbe lata Speaker. What he had laid was to impress upon his own party, that no closenee* of vote, or tie, should induce them to elect a Speaker of the opposite party; for of what party tha Speaker belonged to, no matter by whom obosen to that patty would be given tha majority on the oommlttee*. Mr. Allkn then concluded hi* remark*. Mr. Hillurd considered the gentleman from Mmlarbnsetts. who had Just oonoluded (Mr Allen) aa ooul md as calm a man aa aver be had listened to in hi* life. While no passion was betrayed. It wa* still there. Ma (Mr H ) bad no passion but what was evident in tils language lie wished the people of the oountry, tud particular!* of the North, to understand that tlie reeling shown Is not altogether a dramatie affair. It iras a feelipu tbat must be shown. The gentleman fri ra tieorgia iMr Toombs) had spoken with oonsiderihle feeling, but it fu with a feeling that could not bar* been suppressed, aud It be had uot spoken as he liail to-day. hi* people would have spoken that fouling for blm II* would tell gentlemen. calmly and deliberately. that there never was such feeling on this sabect at the South as exists now. I tell geutlemen, that f tbey pass the Wllmot proviso, the best friends ot .Lis I niin must part It wat no part ef his purpese ;o calculate the value of the Union, that oould not be i sonceived But once let it be dissolved, and when aud ! low can it be bound together again? He would say to (entlrBx-n trom the N orth and South, that If the Wlloaot proviso be passed by both houses of Congress, then this nion must be dissolved. We all remember the elojueut speech of the gentleman from Vlrgiuia, (Mr Mc'owcll ) delivered at the close ot the last eem-ion upon the beauty of the Union, and the motto : '-The Union Host be preserved " He (Mr. H ) had borne that bantu r during the past year; he carried it with him around uis diMtict; he bad spoken to bis peoplx upon it, had battled for it; bad told thera that be knew there wu too niurh justice In the people of the North to attempt to degrade them ; that the Wllmot proviso could never pass both tbeee bouse*. Speaking of these things, he >lt compelled to say that if these measure* were perlisted in. the I'nion Is gone He was struck with the Jgure used by the gentleman from Massachnsetts, thmt hey who spoke of dissolving this Union, oould not Ten remove one of the marble columns of this hall. Fie vould remind that gentleman that the hand of a child night throw a torch into the temple which would uoaiume it. Mr H explained at length hts course lu the raucuawtiich had nominated Mr Winthrop, and said his >ason for not separating himself, and for nUbing his political friends not to separate from the whig party in .Ms election, was a belief, and one which he still entermined that by remaining with them, their moral loflu nee would be greater than a separation. He called ipon gentlemen to atop; to pause even < n the brink of he precipice and contemplate what they would do. If not, atid this course of aggression upon the South sas continued then they would ge down and take the South with them, to ruin. This Wllmot previso was ,e be pressed upon them. What is this Wllmot prertso ' It is a proviso which is to exclude the people of be ftonth from the pommou terrtiory of the Union; a erritory acquired by the expense ol the common blood ind treasure, as well of the South as of the North, la t the territory of the North ' Is It theirs by purohase, >r by conquest * Have we no share in it ?
