If the const tution ot the United fctaten had made such a provision, any State constitu tion could net trammel those provisions. As to the pro pjiety of dividing the State, he believed that, it mutt be dnne ?cm- time or other. There is a sufficient amount ?f teiritory, and he believed a division into thiee States was insvit&hle. l.ct them have the agitatho upon toe -whole question, an<l not upou the question of two States Irst and ene State afterwards, but let the nubject oe wholly diicusted and finally settled. It was only a ques tion of t me, and lie t<)ld them that it was a "foregone ecBclurrn" that the great TacSc coast, wito its futuro miliioDa of yople, would demand a division of the Stare; and that the idea of one State would bertpuioant to toe view* and wishe* of tvery man who represented toe peo ple. Then what could be tbe objection to agitatisg tbe <|n?sticn tow?

He did not know how far gentlemen might lie influenced by tho wow coaalera lion* now, but for liis part be waa unwilling to risk ano btr agitation on tbe slavery question without hot ter teaaons for it than ex lit at present. The portion Sepoaed to be set off to cocetUuta Ihe Stite of Colori i, would net contain nuar the requisite number of inhabitants to be admitted at a Stat*, nor are they in a condition to meet tbe expemes of a new State govern ment. He would therefore vote agairat the bill, for th>) reai- on that tbe imasnre wa* premature. and fiaugbt wi'b danger to the quiet and p>ace of society . Mr. l>orc.ns aaiii he had introduced the bill in goo.l faith He believed that If a man took either side of the question, it would ruin him politically Tbey claimed to bel'seiHc iMnerlc?r.s.

It was or t singular that tbe people of the so'itli-rn portion of the Pt?t? should feel as tbey did. Tho eea'.kern portion o! tbe State sbould be separated from tlie northern porlion. Bills bad hten introduced into tbe Legislature which were inapplicable to both tho aortbtrn and southern potttou* o? tie State. The <;?d of Nature lia< made the aorth?rn and touiliera portien* cf the State various in tbelr physical and grogripbicel character.

Mr. fntMiffio* bed an amendment which he wished to ?fier to the bill, which was to submit the whole muter to the peop'e. 11a was in favor of the people expreeelag their v<ewe en this subject, and he wixhed this Houee to understand tuat be was not like some others on this finer, lor be fully endorsed the prn'lples laid do-va >n the Nebraska bill.

He. therefore, hoped that the bill would not be indefln tely poetponed. Mr. FLOtRNOY remarked that at tvery election the pso ?le of Manpoaa ?m nty had oaat tt?e?r vote in favor of a division of tbe Htate. He never oace beard tbe worl ?' slavery" in the f.gbt.

The Nebraska bill had settled th? question, that wben a State by its constitution excluded slavnry, that qaeation was settled forever. He cared net whether tbey clvided tbe BUte late two nr three PtaVs, but be prr wired to bare twoStaiae.

Ihe Philadelphia ledger, ot the 18th tost., says Gen James Hamilton has addrenied a circular to the people and creditors of Texas touching the adjustment of tbe Ttxas debt, la which, among other tbings. he avows his intention or asking the Legiihture of tbat fcute to accept, "without modification or amendment " tie law recently paeaed by Congress la relation tboreto. 1 he credi ors of Ttxas here will bo gratified to re id this aocouncoment over tbe General's own signature, as his at heron to the plan proposed by Congress omplotes the entire li*t of Texas creditors who really desire its accept ance by tho Slate. It may be sa'oly affirmed now that no era. itor will object, anl that all would unite in a pa tition to tbe I-eglalatiiro to accept this law at once, and thereby put to rest forever, this long, tedious and irrlt a ting controversy between the State and her creditor!. Tbe prompt acceptance of It by the I.?j|l*l?ture will do much to elevate the credit of the State, and remove from her earutchton the tarnish left upon It by the scaling law of 1862. Stock Buhaage.
