Delay, postponement, quietude, composure, are mailed on the face of that policy ; while under its smiling habiliments are hidden the blood-thirsty nd atrocious wishes of conspirators, who are de- j strous of provoking a portion of the generous people of this country to insurrection and violence, in I order that those conspirators in the cabinet nny retain their position at Washington, and their power over the unsuspecting generosity of the heroic chief who now lives in the White House. No other construction can be put on that policy than that it is fiendish, and emanates from those wishing to involve the Southern States in battle array, or goad theni into a state of insurrection against their brethren of the North, in consequence of the slavery question. Is our language too strong 1 Is our construction I the policy recommended by the cabinet improbable I I3y no means. This slavery question? which is now agitating the whole country, North and South, and which has been raised to the present pitch of excitement by such men as Seward, and Clayton, and Ewing, and their associates at ,he North and at the South?must be settled at this sestion of Congress, or brother's bloof! will be shed by brother, and insurrection will gradually be the result of the excitement now prevailing in certain patts of the country. A more daring, desperate and atrocious |*>licy than that which has been imposed on the President, by his cabinet, has not been exhibit*! in the history of this country since the time of the revolution. The fathers of the American revolution, in the last century, were driven into a similar position by the traitors and conspirators of George the Third, and they laid the foundation of our present glorious Union, which we still hope will continue long after the present parties shall have retreated iroin their places of power. Bui the cabinet now in Washington have no patriotic purpose in view in counselling a policy which can lead to nothing but excitement and insurrection Their purpose is to hold power, to maintain their ascendancy over the patriotic heart ot the Chief Magistrate, by leading the country into insurrection and blood, consequent on the *citeir.ent growing out of the slavery question. Something must be done?and that quickly. The Catasteoi'HK, Our Duty.?The heartrending accident, Hnd consequent loss of life, which, on Monday morning, startled every class of society, still remains the theme of thousands of tongues. In the first shock that rent saciety, all impulses, save those directed to the rescue of the dying and the recovery of the dead, were paralyzed; but, as we return to an appreciation of the contingent resul s of this disaster, in all their painful details, the sutlering families of the wounded and ot the dead demand more than ordi aty consideration. It may be that the philan- ! thropic among us have added already to the earnest j action .of the Mayor?which is to be highly cam- i mended?something of that kind of relief incident to the circumstances of the hour. This, however, | is not enough. The suddm ntlliction lias deprived i tuny a family of its chiei pride and entirs support; and the widowed and orphaned perceive, in this wondnful dispensation of Providence, anly the clouds adumbrating over a dark, uncertain future. It is not in our power to allay the natural grief excited in the bosoms of those who have thus been made to mourn; but we ran, m some measure, assuage tke pangs arising from a sense of hopelessness of ?:-i .1 i _i_. .1 . ' coaomon?we can mrow a nine ugui upon trie , path of the future?we can plant a few fluwers i where thorns only are anticipated; and, that we may do this effectually, let the whole community, while fully charged with the strong feelings en- j gendered by the catastrophe, come forward, each w>iih his mite, and according to his ability, to prove that the true brotherhood of civilization rusts in society, in spite of the sneers ol the lunatics! and restless Founerites. Let a subscription be commenced, to form a fund lor those who buve suffered, so that immediate relief m?y be ccnveyad to their desolate homes. Thousands are i ready to contribute. Let the good work be com wirncrd to-day . Thi KoiHMTan My.i any?Gratification of the love of the marvellous is still going on in the le- j gitimate quarters and with such a mock heroic gravity as to cause sober minded person* to laugh , most heartily at the farce. It is quite surprising that any one can be serious at such performances; : but as there are such, it may be well to hint at a | title of the lolly, chicanery and knavery which have astonished this globe in times past, and the credulity, stupidity and cajolery now practised upon the good people of Kochester Like-the baseless fabric of .1 vision, this snpernatura'ly konekiwg apparatus, alter knocking one way snd J another, will knock under, and no more b- heard j of. for a whoie generation at least This has been the history of every similar "spiritual" comm tni- | cation, and must be, to the rnd of time The apparition of Lord Lytfleton to Mr Andrews, Mrs. Itretton's ghost, Hir George Viltiera' ghost, and a hundred other similar circumstances, are all, j measure ably, of the same class a* those recorded by I>foe, with respect to Mrs. Veal?they are fab- : rications, to a certain e*rent.

It is a very curious fact, that while the American publishers have hitherto robbed the authors of the aid world of the fruits of their intellectual labors, and grown rich upon the spoils, English publishers have been in the habit of paying liberal sums to our own writers. Mr Irving, who acquired considerable fame in his own country, by P.rst gaining some reputation from the publication, under very favorable auspices, in England, ci ni? c>Kncn jjoor, ana one or iwo runer smui affairs, happened, in visiting ?pain, a^out twentyfive years ago, to fall in with Navarete, a Spanish historian, of great talents and learned research, who had just then brought out the " Life and Voyages of Columbus." Alexander Everett wad at that time our ambassador to Madrid, and he and Mr. Irving put their heads together, and the veteran Spanish historian's labors were coolly appropriated by Mr. Irving, who, a short time afterwards, brought out his " Life and Voyages ol Christopher Columbus," upon which I119 fame now mainly rests; and yet this book, which placed Mr. Irving in the front rank of American historians, never cost him one hour's research, and was a little more than a free and fanciful paraphrase of the great work of the Spaniard. Navarete deserved all the credit, but Irving got it, throughout the English world. It was understood that his American publishers paid htm fifteen thousand dollars for it here, and that Mr. Murray, of London, gave him a still larger amount. There was certainly no obligation, on the part of any publishers, to pay one shilling to an American writer; for he could legally pirate his book, without paying him a groat; tut there was a certain law of courtesy which prevented such an outrage; and let it always be said, to the praise of British publishers, that so long as the slightest hope was left in their minds, that our Congress would poes a law securing to them and their authors the right of their books on this side of the water, they never robbed Americans of their copyrights, but always rewarded them generously, whenever they published their works. In this manner Cooper received immense sums from his publishers. Irving, from first to last, has been paid, we understand, over a hundred thousand dollars, by his London publishers. Prescott, Bancroft, and other distinguished American writers, have been richly remunerated by the London houseB which have brought out their books. Even the flippant, kaleidescope, polka-dancing Melville has been enabled to line his pockets pretty substantially by the revenues accruing fromhts English editions. Hitherto our American writers have been almost as generously rewarded, by the publishers of London, for the works they have brought out, as they would have been if their books had been covered by the shield of a copyright. But this state of things has come suddenly to an end. The publishers of Great Britain, feeling that they have been long enough outraged,by the piracies of American houses upon tneir books, have suddenly tunied the tables; and we understand that mf goiaro streams wnicn were nowing iruni iiif great London houses into the pockets of our popular American authors, have heen suddenly checked. Mr. Melville started, we are told, some time ago, for Englund, with the early proof sheets of his last book, intending, on the avails ot it, to muke the fashionable tour over the continent, and luxuriate in the capitals of Europe, upon tne fruit of his labors. The revulsion came on. He was coolly luformed, by his former London publisher, that he could pay no more copyrights; and the aforesaid intellect quits the great metropolis in despair, with empty pockets, and turns his face once more towards his native land. So it is with a considerable number of other authors, who have recently sent their manuscripts or proof sheets to Europe. All at once their receipts have stopped. Ail at once the English publishers have discovered that tbey are great fools to pay oui large sum" of inoiiry to American writers, since they can legally publish any American book in their market, with- I out paying one copper to the writer. We are very I glad that this revolution has been brought about'; and we hope that, while a few ?f our great houses have grown rich upon the pirated hooka of Lamartine, Hallam, llulwer, Scott, Jamea, Thackery, Macauh y,and others, and have opposed most strenuous ly the passage of an international copyright law, hy our own Congress, that the same joke is being per I*trmed on the other side of the Atlantic ; and we hope that it will, sooner or later, hare its effect. Hitherto, such men as Irving, Prescott, Bancroft, Bryant, Halleck and a few others, who have grown rich and famous upon their copyrights, at home and abroad, have left the great mats of unpaid and unencouraged American authors to starve, without lifting a finger to aid them to find publishers for their books at home, or to get them republished abroad. Now, perhaps, these well fed gentit men may begin to see that they themselves have some interest in this question ; and we hope that all of ilit m now will unite, in throwing their efforts into the same channel, to bring about such a change in public opinion as will act upon Congress, and compel the national Legislature to pass a law which will protect the writers of all nations in the enjoyment of what they have honestly acquired a right to by their own exertions. It is neither to be disguised nor palliated, that the effect of thess piracies on the part of our publishers, has been, and will continue to be, injurious to the morals, the principles and national spirit of the tountry. By flooding this nation with the myriad works which bear the name of popular foreign authors, every man of sense must know that American producttona, for the most part, are crowded from the market, and our readers are conqielled to buy the works of foreign writers, or have nothing to read. The consequences of this system of policy are pretty clearly shown up, ia a book, which has recently been published, entitled the " Living Authors of America." In the article on Mr I'oe, the celebrated toper and poet, he uses the following bold language, ia attributing the success ot l'oe, as a writer, to the fearlessness of his criticisms i?

The r,^indl| well defined, and sublime |>oa'.(ion tak* n by Mr. Clay in the Senate of the Uulted ^'.ates, will have a much more powerful efleet upon the country at large, and upon his unsociales at Washington, than was generally anticipated. We think we do not see merely through our hopes, as many journalists do, when evidences of a truly thinking aiid judiring diepoiition apj?ear in the Senate, at once not only complimentary to the genius manliness, and patriotism of the great Senator from Kentucky, but, happily, for the settlement ot a question to which the force and character of (he cabinet were pre-eminently inadequate. Whatever ultimately may be the reali/.atiou from the labors of Mr. Clay, one thing is by no means equivocal?though the regulation of the disturbed political elements, at the centre of ourgovernmental system, be merely a subject for theory and speculation, Mr. Clay's vtews will act like the great forces of nature, which hold and sustain the planetary organization in their individual b'-auty and their collective harmony. Minor antagonistic powers may produce their phenomena, to derange and to retard, for a time, the great laws which intellect will create and fashion in this crisis; but from one source alone will proceed th it regularity and order so ardently desired by every true admirer of this nation and its institutions. The country will be awakened to a sense of its position by the course of Mr. Clay. Opinions and suggestions, almost infinite in number, will he started, and, like chryatalizations, will shoot in every possible form of eccentricity; but the general j character of these, as they become fixed into solid I deductions, will be in conformity to the line of j j reason marked out by the distinguished Senator, | whose mind first grasped the great necessity of the j case,and directed attention to its importance?out Binning, and casting into shadow, the contempt- j ble recommendations of the imbecile cabinet, whose btutesnffnshi)> is stupidity, and whose diplomacy is a thin veil of flimsy inactivity. Mr. Clay commenced to si>eak yesterday, about one o'clock, upon those resolutions which have | already appeared in the Htrald, and which every ! man ought to read attentively. When we received his first words, the precise character of the effort i he was to make flashed upon us; and we were j convinced that he was " spiritually wrapped" for a | more important effect than the mere tickling of ; ears, or stirring up the hair of the Senate. All the Rochester hocus-pocus is girls' work, compared to it. With what grace and force he turns the points i of arguments, when the country is endangered and basely deserted by those whom the President called to aid, not to impede, his admin*tration ' Tilers is something noble, elevated, and august in the manner in which Mr. Clay has brought his bril- j liunt and gigantic intellect to bear on the momentous question ; and there are only a few men, ! ... r- u.lw. ur'll h? Willintr to I wc I'll PUHir, til vvn^Krr, "* | ^ risk the odium which will fall upon them, should , they ba dis;>oetd to depart from the general spirit J characterizing the proposed compromise. i j Although we have only an abstract of this im- | t portant speech of Mr. Clay's, there is enough to , satisfy any rational man?any man not eaten up c with the canker of party?that the results from its j ' d? livery, assumed by us, will yet be realized. It t cannot be that anything very wide of the margin J proposed by Mr. Clay will be adopted, unless the I busy, meddling, small politicians, flung headlong | { by their passions, create that confusion so much | a sought by some parties for the purpose ol obtain- . J1 'ng capital to work outfthelr silly, paltry schemes, i t These pitiful aspirants for distinction will find that * the Union is not a child's dissected map, to be o pulled to pieces and refitted at the caprice of every * wanton mind?but one of the solid creations of g time, that has been baptised by two vast oceans, ' ? and wbna? head is sarred in the sight of liberty J and of civilization. I | d News from Wasalngtsa. / or* srxctAL t*i.eo*ai?hic coxkkspondevcx f Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 1800. li The rush of ladies to the capitol to hear Henry ? Clay, was such, that hundreds of then had to be ti admitted to the floor of the Senate ; they besieged J the main entrance in a solid mass, and there was t< no alternative but to let them in. The galleries J were filled three hours before the call to business, fc The speech of Mr. Clay was but an extension of * his argument of last week; it is evidently taking hold of the minds of northern men They begin to appreciate the humbug of the Proviso. Free r soil is losing caste; but the extreme South con- * tend that Mr. Clay's plan is substantially the Pro- J viso? that he surrenders the whole issue to the e North. The admission of California by itself gives the Senate to the North. Some compromise is demanded, but the impression is strong th it the j movement of Mr. Clay will lead to the settlement I of the whole difficulty at this session, upoa some 1 satisfactory plan. There is a strong body of Southern men in the House, who are resolved that not a solitary appropriation bill shall be passed until the slavery dispute is settled, because jf it goes over until another session, s comprninisejwill | be almost impossible. Something must be done; non-intervention will not answrr. Northern m-n are hacking out, and the South demands action. 1 learn that a satisfactory adjustment has taken place in the Nicaragua difficulties; that the trea'y ! will go to England by the next steamer, and that ! Tigre Island becomes the property of the Called j States, and that Mr. Hulwer has disavowed the whole of Mr. C'hatfield's proceedings. All this, with the exception of the statrmrni that the treaty is actnally made and complete, you have stated t before in the JViie York Hrrald. I merely repeat ' the statements, as they are again talked about. The mother of the Hon. Mr Venable, of North Carolina, died suddenly, last night, in consequence of her clothes taking fire.

Hi* object hud been to present the erasure which, in thi* spirit, would sITord platform I pen w hich both Feotlen* of the country o-'Old unite, rhe first resolution related to the admission of Callrrnla. with her constitution, into the Union Mr. 1. proceeded, by citation of precedents and eogeat argument. to show that such course was the only ireper one. and that it involved no concession on he one ride or the other. The second resolution lalled upon those who had set their hearts upon the ,doptIoh of the Wilmot proviso? In view of the larger which thriatensthe lulon Inconsequences! he agitation ot that measure for the sake of peaoe md good leeling. to yield up that measure in return, ie had felt bound, in the eplrit of mutual concession, 0 rffer something in return for the surrender of this avorite principle, or mea-ure Ha bad proposed heretore. in return, to declare twa truths, wnloh he onsidered clear and indisputable?first, that, by law, lavery no longer exists in the territories ceded to the ailed States by Mexico; and second, that. In onr opt lion, it would not go there under any circumstances ie proceeded to inquire whether these were truths?ariulng the affirmative of the proposition, from the hisory of the negotiation of the late treaty with Mexico, ,ud a reasonable construction of the operation of the institution, and other conceded grounds. The Intitution of slavery, in his opinion, presented two ntirely distinct grounds?slavery within the States, ind slavery without the States Congress had no tght to interfere with slavery in the States; and if be time could arrive wheu Congress attempted to so utertere with the institution, then bis voice would M tor war. Thru be would feel that the South were to resist so unconstitutional and aggressive 1 measure with all the means which Ood or nature iad placed in their hands He pictured the evils to eeuit iroma civil war arising from sash a state of hinge?stating that It would be one In which we rouid receive no sympathy from the world. The next ucstlon was. has Congress any power over slavery ont f the State*? He contended that It bad, and that ihlle a want of control over the institution In he States was Indisputable, its control out of the late* is. at least, a debateable question; onw upon hich men might reasonably differ; the decision of ihirb. consequently ee mattes hew Settled, should not ive rise to ill feeling and disunion.
