At?o a petition that the Senate would rrjeet the eifhlh resolution of the eerie* eubmltted by Mr. Clay ; and many other petition* of a similar character Mr. Ci it rose nnd said that he desired to call the attt nt ion of the Senate and the country to the rharaet< r and nature of the petitions just presented by the Senator mm N< w llamp hire (Mr. Hale). They were printid pl-iee of ps pi r. inbraoinic every variety of eubj. ct ii.ilcjad In this question of slavery, and were pripand at tome common coutrs. and scattered all over the ci unlry for > pnaturee and then returned here ex rvidi ucce of popular opinion.

Kentut ky He a.tyactcd to sueb a ramified scheme of daea'vlng this l>"dy or the country a* to the ep nlon of the country. He held ono of these po. tltlous in his hand and would ask tho Senate to examine it Mr. Hill called the Senator to order.

Mr. CiaV?Well, sir. let the Senator state hb point of ord r. Mr Hale?I am not to b disturbed In my duty by 1c ud talking, either from bch nd or before. Mr C. At?No one talk* louder than yourself. Mr. lltLi wa* about stating his polu* of order when Vr. Mixuta ro e to a point of order. If lb* Senator f < ui Kentucky was nulled to ord r for words, the words should be reduced to writing Mr. Hale suid that his point of order had not yet been stated. The Vice Peesidevt said the Senator from New Hampshire had not yet slated his point of order; and the chair c< u'.d uot tell vet what it was. Mr. Hale then stated hip ><nt of order to be?that the petition on which the Senator from Kentucky was spesking. was one of those which h- had presmtid. end one which the Senate had and ta'.d on the table. It was a subject on which the Senate had acted, aud thai no remarks now upon It were in airala-r.

Mr. Ciat aald that he understood the rule was directly the rercrse, The Y I' rsirRMT said that ho might he mistaken, and would tie happy to be corrected by th- Senate. Mr. Cur said that itvia a well established rule,that e?iry member having a paper to prosent or a motion to make, had the right, and It was his duty to state to the body. In brief and pertln nt remarks, the oh,eel and motive of the paper he proposed to pyeecnt. or the motion he desired ti submit If a member should proceed to make a long and Unix penary speech, he could he called to ord ir and coa-rtned to the subject, lie remembered the celebrated case of Mr Kewdfph who made a long speech upon a pfipi r which had not been presented to the IIiu<e Ue (nr. Clay, then Speaker) had called Mr Randolph (o order. An appeal was taken, and the decision was sustained Mr I;, then proceeded to the eitminttion of 'the character of the petitions and the m >de In which they were disseminated throughout the couatry fbr the purpose of manufWcturing public opinion Whenever there appr ared a pro.p.-rt of effecting a settlemi nt of the disturbing (juration*. those abolltlonista set on foot every scheme to prevent peace and b rmany and to inrreaee agitation and strife lie e vn? d red the *K lltlouists to be the gT< alet t enemies anil oppreasors of the negro race. They were later ated only in k eping the putlte mind in agitation. Th y were like the Centaur* of old. they u?unted the negro as a means on which they can ride into place and dt?tlucii'>n He again denounced the petitions as a schema to disturb and agitate the country by (Wisely manufacturing public opinion.

THE OIOCNABOKD BB?EWVt OPrtCB** Mr IIami.i*. from the Committee on Coinot'-ree reported against the restoration to the Herenue, of the officer* discharged some time ainee. which report we* concurred in. Ma. BBLL'a BBtOLL'TIO**. The Senate reoumed the ronaideration of Mr. BeU'a resolution* on the subject of Slavery which Mr foote had uiored to refer to a Select Committee of Thirteen, with instruction* to endeavor to report noma plan of compromise r< r toe settlement or ?U toe question* arising out of the institution of slavery. T.? this u?>ti<>n Sir. Baldwin had moved an amendment providing that t ho question of the admission of Calif >rtna should not be connected with the question* reported npon. The quiellon having been stated on the Utter ami ndment. Mr. Bintov briefly addreaaed the Senate citing Uct* in aupport of the poaition nwumi'd by him that in sixty yi ar* of legislation. Congress had never bsfsre coupled the admission of a State with any other question. Mr. Clav replied again citing tho rate of Missouri, and proceeded with some remark* for the purp >?. of showing that no indignity or injuatice would bo d jus to California. by referring her caae to the chet e >mmittie There were few point* in which Congress had any right to touch the queation of slavery at all and j of those few there were aeveral which he would not touch himself and would not. therefore, eend th >ni to any committee. He would never con-ent to couple California with slavery, in any way. He alio read the art for the admission of Missouri and rommouted upon the action completing that measure. Mr. Darros opposed tho connection of Oal f.irnia with the distracting question of slavery \V\* it n >t an act of injustice to California. to thus nmii 'ot har. and tbua hazard the defeat of her admission in tho h< pe of bringing in. with her. and carrying through, a more objiclioiiable measure, thus making h >r a sort of sugar plum, in the exportation that she w 11 sweeten, in some degree, a bitter doso. ami thus enable certain Individuals to swallow it? California hid rights upon this floor, and no such use as p-opned should be made of her The proposition was uujust also, to senators who desired to voto for Calif iru.a and who did not desiro to be forced to reject hor or else Tcte for measures which they believe to bs improper Mr Kivo advocated tho propriety of connecting two subject!. as proposed lie contended that California had no actual right to be received here, and that delay In that act. for the purpose of eecurtng the rights of the states of the Union, was proper snd could not be objected to by her She was a territory and o >uld have no rights as a State until Congress had m ido her a State. After some remarks on tho general question. 1 he expressed his attachment to the Union, and the ! hope that It would be preserved by a spirit of conciliation aVid compromise. Mr Doeci ass. as a test question, whether tho Senate would raise the select committee or not. moved to lay I the whole subject on the table but withdrew for i Mr WcMTxa. who expressed his rcadiues* to vote ! for the committee, but he could not commit hfra?'lf i to aupport any measure which shall make the adinie ion of California dependent upon any other muaiure. lie thought that the importance of tnn preceduuoo of mi'NHurt'*. van much overrated If Mr. Dougtaa ->h >uld get up hie State billa. it would be competent for nnjr 1 gcntliman to move to amend by inserting territorial I govt rnment, and ri>< verto. The queston up >n either ! or boih subjects could not bo avoided In conclusion he raid that be waa ready to vote for the admission of j California a* an Independent meaaore and that he wiuld vote for the propoaed committee a< .in eaporlnnnt in drference to the leading men in the H.-nate, who bad di/cueeud the queation. rather than from any confidence in ita results. Mr 1'oora. in compliance with n suggestion from Mr Wrbater. that the term in hla motion for the committee suggesting that the committee be appointed to consider and present lomi plan of compromise m xliflid hia motion by aubatituting for--plan of eompromiae." the words " scheme of adjustment." After come observations by Mr. Itaia and Mr. Poovg, Mr Bkwtow submitted some additional remarks, to shew that if the subjeet of California should b<- sent to the committee, her case would have boon already prrjudgid and contending that tha sense of the .Semite, upon the direct subject should be tak'in now? that a manifestation of the real sentiment might i be obtain* d while the whole subject waa on hand. 1 If m nl to the committee and brought bark again t > the Senate, the man who would dare to oppose the proposition of the committee, would he denoune,-* throng Rout the country ae a dlm.cgentssr and fhrttoatst. lie further objected to the Injustice of auy course by the Senate, the effect of which would be to make California buy off, or pay down, for the privilege of alavcry from her borders In reply to Mr Clay ho denied that be rrlled upon precedents in hl? opposition to miiing California with othar questions, asserting that hia coarse was founded upon reaaons which hava govt rem d those precedents for aisty years Mr Kiwo denied, for himself aud those who acted with him being governed In hla course by any consideration connected with the Introduction or eielusion of slavery Into California Mr. Dtn.-ct.ass renewed hla motion to lay Mr. foots'# motion on the table, which waa rejected ? yeas W. nay* 'it ae follower?
