Senator Wade's jpoecb . of which ihc Hkkald has al ready had a brie' synopaid, an I of -which it will imn di ately have a full report, Is receiv ed as the text of rej ub liean faith and Cdelity. It is <!et ^unccd by the th, including many I'niou men. at lb s head of whom m tho Vice President of the United St? cs, as tho gloomiest ,r<> duct ion that has yet appeared from the republican 'arty. It closes forever any hope of pa Ucutiott, aud, u v at- de clared to-night by one of th-> most prominent of the Southern representative men, it will unite the South within twenty days. The threat of colonizing Mexico and Central America with free blacks is deemed to insulting to Southern pride and repulsive to Southern feeling in all grades of society, that they will, with one voko, unite in Indignatt denun ciation of the sentiment and to arms rather tlian submit to it. The tone of dissatisfaction :unoug thin is more decided, and more compact, general, end revolt) tionary if p'?-sib!e, than heretofore. The speech will produce vehement excitement in !l ? Southern States and at Columbia, S. , where the seceding Cenveut:on i.-? being held, It will net only tiro the hearts of tho delegates, but, it is feared, ] !ut g>5 them inte rash measures of retaliation. Mr. Wade ha- been boiling over with this spec> h for several days, ever s.nco .Senator Wigfall delivered h-t speech on behalf of tho South. It has been with the ut most difficulty Wad - was restrained from n&kiug a more violent exp!< sion Uian he h-is. While there Is but one vaieo famong repabtkvm in favor of the speech, there Li but one among the South erners and democrats generally in &4i<icnuuiiuiu ??' it. Heiiator Wade expects to be the CYomwell of Uh North ern re> -i?,j0nary lnuv<ment for tho extinction of slave ry, and be wouir. inaugurate it by planting ?n the Jlexi eau borders of the rep..'.i,<? colonies of free blacks for tl.e purpose of melting ?nink<| among the slaves of tho Southern States, and ot '-r^eninK fugi tives who may escape. The Senator hinted that t i Bv.? | would aid the North in thia dialxJical n<oven ent. Is tbbr - not a fit matter for the Investigation of the government,. If we have a government? I no Senate In executive* session conilrmed tie nomination nf .ludj r as ??te rtiary of State, and also sundry minor appt ut meats. The attempt in tie House to adjourn over for the l"? days signally fa -led. Tie re is very little fir the Ami rf can people to rejoice about in these days, and still 'cm when we Uko the jcntiment prevailing at the -.'-at of government as the standard of public feeler. The Meeting of the Pennsylvania <b lecatioa at the Ave nue Hotel was ai, nifleant for several reasons ?First that the proposition for the enforcement e.' all laws, fede ral and local, should emaiiate frm Mr Campbell, the republican member of the CooaaaiUee of Thirty-thr?-e, second, that Mr. Orrrde, republican sh?? ] adopt the re commendation of Senator Bigler, uemocm. , and agree to strike out the wwds that their enforcement should < ? secured at all haards; third, -Hat the said Mr. Gampl>ell should propose the restoration of the M^soori O tnpro mise line; anl fe rth, that the en'ijeet of dividing the Territories ieto St. ties should not have been introduced at all. All these prepositions were pr<vcuted, and they were rejeaiod after a free and .'aim conversa tion and ccneiderai/sn. Messrs. B i-ier and Hickman proposed vi rbal sexndmeute to the retxdctiont as uii uly paened unanimously. Mr. Crow objected to the fourth projxeition, lw?. much as it gave aa anduo repmentatior in the Sot t?, for with a population of half a million the Territories would have the sotce representation *, i_ilf A dtuci Sf the old States.
