As we have prognosticated, not without hope, Mr Webster seeuis determined to trample down the weed* of disunion and anti-slavery which have sprung up s) abundantly for eouie time past in "Western New York lie has now fairly got the start of Mr. Fillmore, anil all the other candidates for the Presidency, the people of Buffalo ha\ in<* in vited him to a complimentary dinner, while the President and the rest of hi-' cabinet have decided to break up in admired disorder, and take the back track for Washington. This is rather curious and hasty news, and may indicate that there is some thing in the back ground, worthy of some remark ben after. At Savannah, Mr. 1 Iowell Cobb has made a speech in favor of maintaining the Union. Thus it gov.. North and South, and the ul raisms and ul trai. ts of the day will be forced from the:r bad eminence. In the same city, we perceive that a uevere sentence has been passed on J. Orville Brown, a clerk in the post office at Augusta, for robbing the mads. The prosecutions of the go vernment, ofdate years, for this crime, have been Btaele with a great deal of vigor, and the poliee de partment connected with the mails is much more efficient than at any former period. Later from California and the Sandwich Islands. Fy the arrival of tae stcainer El Dorado at this port, yesterday, from C bag res, we have files of Califoruia papers which give u; deles fifteen days luter tLan these heretofore received. The commercial accounts from California are highly encoui aging. Rain, which hail long been desj-ed, had fallen, and proved advantageous to ruining operations ; and the steamer Panama is re ported to have brought down from San Francisco gold dust to the amount of a million of dollars. The social, political and financial condition of Cali fornia ai pears to be in about the same state as by previous advices, and our columns contain extracts from the California journals on the principal items ef intelligence on these anl kindred subjects. The most iinportaut news by the arrival, how ever, to which we have to <lircct attention, is the petition in which the government of the Sandwich Islands has been placed by the threats of the French government, through its agents, and the disposition ?f the Hawaiian population to place themselves under the American flag. We cannot view this ratject with indifference. The Sandwich Islan Is are important to the United States, and would form that grympi in the great I'a-ifl;, which it will be necesraHKr the United States to occupy at an early day, as a kind of half-way house between Ca lifornia and India ar.d China We trust oar go vernment will not neglect this momentous subject. ,W'e give a very full account of all that per-ains to the history of the French disposition to blockade the prineipil port, and we commend the whole to the careful perusal of our intelligent readers, who cann it but be interested in a subject which may lead to very serious consequences, aud possibly to a war with France.

WEBSTER INVITED TO \ PUBLIC DINNER. Arrangements for the Departure of the President for Washington, fcc., Ac., Ac. OlER BAIN'S LINE. SECOND SPEECH OP MR WEBSTER AT DUNKIRK. D nkibk, May IS?P. M. It was announced that Mr Webster, wh'> had been detained by the sickness of hi. son, would address the citizens this evening This announcement brought a targe number down to Dunkirk, who, with our citizens, repaired to the large dining room of the Loder House. Sir. Webster commenced speaking at 7 P. M .and said although the event which had separated him from the rest of the party, and caused his detention at Dunkirk, was a painful one. the detention itself bad been very pleasant. He them adverted to the subject of riv-r and harbor improvements, and showed the absurdity of the ar guments used by those who opposed the appropriation bill. Mr Webster then took up the subject < f the New York and Erie railroad, and spoke of the magnitude of the under taking. and the er.ergy and perseverance required to sus tain and carry forward such an enterprise to a successful oomph tion. He dwelt with enipha.U on the public spi rit lithe Dunkirkers. lie said that no enterprise in this country, or in the world, could be brought in comparison, lie referred to the railroad being constructed between St. Tetersburgh and Moscow, at the expense rf th ? whole Russian nation, as the only enterprise in Europe that could be brought in com pari.- a with it. au<l that line was not as long, nor did it pass through such a rugged and uneven country The Erie railroad is a work that confers honor on the State and nation Mr Web ster said be could not unit the subject without pay ing a pa-sing tribute to the memory of one of ihe early friends of internal improvm at* ? De Wilt C linton lie talked of his enlarged and states manlike views on the subject of internal improvement. Mr Welg'.er raid he was m>t a New York man but he was an American, and as such he was free to say that too much honor could not be paid to the memory of I'lintnn He then made an elegant allusion to the advantages of our system of government over any other in the world and contrasted the hupplness of our people with til ise of other governments, and spoke warmly ou the subject of ! the Union, and its advantage, to the whole country. 1 Mr Webster clo-edhis remarks by thanking the citizens < f Dei kirk for the hospitable manner in which he had been entertained The meeting was then closed with three cheers for Daniel Webster. and three for the Union. THE X II11' FROM DUNKIRK TO BI I I A L O Birr*Lo, May 17,1831.

Mr Filflhcre replied, and thanked the Mayor for th" cordial reception given to him He said he knew it wan not Intended for htm particularly, but that it was a ho mage paid to him by hie old friends and asaoelat"*. to the institution* of our common country. A* such ho re ceived It. and he begged leave to -ay U> the Mayor, and thr< ugh him to hi* fellow eitisens of Buffalo, tuat n?> elation In his life afforded him so much pleasure as a r. union with his fellow citiaeaa of Buffalo (Applause.) He was happy to ?ce them all. and ^ un'bw their protection He concluded -fl^hgaiu rcturuing thanks The May Flower then put to sea with Bar? flying, and baud* Playing, receiving as she passed, a national salute from theTuited State* steamer Michigan, which steatned up and escorted the May Flower to Buffalo.

Pi*?It is with generous emulation and honest pride, that your fellow citimna have come forth, to-illy, to w< let me to his home the chief magistrate of the nation.

The pleasure which your return affords Us. is greatly augmented by a eonrideretion of the imoiedi.ite object of your visit to Western New York. A gigantic work of is just accomplished.

The sacctions of the legi.-lative body of the nation are in the line of illus trious precedent, aod the chief actions and duty of your fellow citizen? prompt them to desire that your future administration may be peaceful, brilliant, useful, impar tial and honorable to its close.
