As soon a> It *u known th.it Senator Foote, of Mississippi. and Senator Down*, of Louisiana, had arrived la this city, on Saturday laat. In the steamship from Charleston. <n route to Washington, it wai proposed iliat they .should be welcomed to this metropolis by the i' nion Safety Committee, appointed at the (Teat meeting held a short time ago at Ca<tle Oarden. Those distinguished gentlemen were applied to on tin- subject, and we are happy to say that they at once expressed th gratification which it would afford them to meet tlie committee, of whom they had heard so much. These distinguished champions of the I'nlonwere received yesterday, at one o'cloek, at the Governor'j itoom. in th* City Hall, where the Mayor of the city atreduoei them to the v&st concourse of people which ! thronged th* building In every part. Mr. Kingsland the Mayor elect, was also present, giving his approval of th* proceedings. Among the other gentle m*n present we observed George Law. proprietor of the Southern line of United State* mail steamer*; K. 1C.

Tellow Cititens.- Mr. Foots, Senator in Congress Treat Mississippi, and Mr. Downs, Senator in Congress rorn Louisiana will now be addressed by Ogden Ilolu*a. K>'i of this city. and. when he has concluded, tbefe gentlemen will, probably, favor us with a reply. Mr. Hnrrtu* then addressed Messrs. Foot* and Down*, as follows : ? tientlemen -At a time when our country was coneidered in extreme danger, from the spirit of disunion and fanaticism which was abroad in our land, a meeting. without respect to party, wis called at Castle Harden, in this city. The objects of that meetlug were declared to be to footer and revive that spirit of union in-whloh tho constitution w** formed and adopted, and to resist any attempt that might be made to des troy It. -A committee was eppoiuted to carry out th* object of that meeting That committee is here assembled to me*t you. and on m? has devolved ths duty, as <k.U >?

Philadelphia, and other places in the North autuerou* meetings hire been hald, all breathing the same spirit, and all directed to the same holy end. We did hope that that metin< .might do some good ; we did hope that at thn North it might -iid in checking tbe spirit of fanaticism and folly which preached disobedience to the laws to be a autytoGcd. (three cheers.) We did hop- that atth< ^outh It might have a tendency to remove tbe error and mlsoonoption which did to a oertaln extent prevail. that the North was wining to trample on the constitution. and on tbe rights of the South. We dli hope that It might contribute something, no matter hoe ilttls, te give strength to the arm and po??r to the voto* of those gallant sons of the South who were nobly contending against secession, and disunion, and ? treason. , Three i hoers.) We did hope that It might leash both the North and the South, that we were bound together by fraternal ties?that we had but one hops aud on.- destiny common to us both ? that we were hr-Ihrea of the aanie household, and that a hodbe -divided agninst its?H must fall. (Applause ) It Is not for ma to mj how far those hopes have been > readied; and while I cann<>ih?lp Indulging In exprseeu'nf the joy which I expert-need, when, from the lint of a distinguished gentleman from Georgia, the Speaker of the House of Representatives?(three cheers fJt Jiffwsll Cobb)- to whom on a recent occasion thestm w>4co?e was extended, we were gratified with the assurance that that meeting had accomplished some good, and been of seme at ail in achieving the vietory which they won (Applause) You gentlemen, are personally strangers to the most of us. but we are not i strangers to the gallant tflorts. ths dlsttngntihed zetl ind the untiring devotion wl'h which on, the ft>or of I the s<enat?. you advocated those measures which we ^ l>eli*ved were neceaaary to the preservation of thtnlon and to the promotion of the causa to which we , have devoted ourselves.

Who doubt* thU.' It it not a fact, without mentioning names, that prominent champions of patriotiam in the North hare already declared, in express language, their determination to no longer continue the agitation which ha* heretofore distracted the oountry and our national oouncils ' (Qood) Is it not true that leading newspapers published In the cities of the North nave lately declared, in the judgment of the editors at least, that it is inexpedient to continue tbis agitation' Is there not good reason for btllevlng ron11 dentlT. that agitation In the North will now o?a*? ' And what is the oondition of public feeling in the South? Why. Maryland unanimously sustains the Union. Bo does Delaware. In the good Old Dominion, where repose the bones of Marshall, of Madison, anil Washington. of Uenry. and a host ot other patriots of the revolution, the language of secession ha? neveryet betn heard, and never will be heard. (Tremendous applause) The people ol Kentucky are equally unanimous?the people ol Mlseouri are equally unanimous- the people at Tennessee, whlgs and democrats, are at least equally as unanimous for the Union. There is but one voice in that State which has been raised in support of the plan of sxcesslon concocted in South Carolina twelve months ago. and f>ut in aotion recently by a gentleman whose name it e not delicate to mention. The voioe of tbe Hon. Hopkins Turney, I learn, wm the only one that waa ralssd in support ot tha plan ot secession eonooeted in 8outh Carolina. North Carolina. Florida, Alabama, Louisiana. Texas and Georgia, the proceedlagr of whose patriotic conventions have already reached you, have all declared in unequivocal language, their determination to adhere to the Union, and to pat down factionIsts and faetionism. I understand the intelligence communicated from South Carolina t>y telegraph is that they will await the action of the State of which I hare tbe honor, in part, to represent?the patriotic State of Mississippi. This la muth what I expected for two or three months past I am glad that they will postpone final action until then, for 1 am ascertain at that Ued reigns, and that this glorious nation exists on the face of the globe, tbat the people of the State of MIssIssIddI will, next Autumn, more unanimously declare in tavor of tii? Union than even the State ot Georgia, (three cheer* for Mississippi, and three more for Georgia ) I sprat: of what I know; and ret tht? ma; appear strange to some.and may need explanation. The explanation is easily offered. True, th* Governor of Mississippi ha* declared himself in favor of prompt seoession?tru-? it in. he la sustained at the present t me by nearly Ml the official influence oi the State, including the two house* of the Legislature, a majority of whom time decided in favor of the Oortrnor'i policy ot seoes?ion?that Is ell true, but 1 ran assure you; that In the county in which the capitol is located, there is an overwhelming majority ot the people of both parties in favor of preserving the I nion and in favor ol defeating any acheme of accession that may ba proposed. (App'lause.) Within the last seven weeks, fellow cltiteas, I have uone through nearly every populous county in Mississippi, and although I felt my own feebleness, yet, buoyad up and sustained by the Inspiring cause In support of which I engaged. 1 did, in every county which I visited, challenge controversy; and in every coutty >>ut on- or two, controversies did occur, in the presence of hundreds and thousand* of people And what was the consequence ' Why, at the very first meeting, two thousand parson* concurred in the adjustment bills passed nt the last session of Congress, and In support of the I nlon (Applause) In every other county that I visited, a result almost preclaely similar orcurrea. Never did I bear the voices rf more than six secessionists in the State of Mississippi, whea a vote was taken; and a Tote was takaa In every county but t>ae or two. \pplau?e) I.et me relate an anecdote to yon. In Talabatchle nounty a large meeting was ennrened. notice was given that 1 would address my fellow citizens cn that day. It being the first day ot conrt, a large rueetlig cf people took place, and on that day oflrrtd tor the adoption of the aMseml>led people, by a nioft prominent men In that section of neutral Mississippi. Those resolutions were offered by a nephew of the late dlstingubhed John C.

It wa* said, on a certain occeaioa, to my old friend. Gen. Caaa. by tome gentleman (three cheer* for Oca. Caaa) who waa consulting party palicv a little more thaa the interests of tbe country, that If the plan of adjustment waa carried out. Uenry Clay might become Preaident. i Now, Gen. Caaa had nominated Mr Clay a* chairman of that oommittee, and what waa the reply of the old patriot ' I will atate tbe reply; because, psrhaps. vou will hear it from no one elte. When he replied, that honest lace ol hi* became ' refulgent with the true aplrlt of a patriot da remarked, "Then; ?o be it It Clay's noble conduct, at the htad of oar oommittee.
