The Committee of Thirty-three have been engaged all day discussing tbo proposition of Mr. Davis, of Mary *?d, relative to tie Fugitive Slave law, the substance of wt?*h has been frequently published in the Hrauij.. Upon this point a general discussion arose on tho whole question agitating the country. Mr. Tappan announced that Kew Hampshire was ready to yield to every other State in the Union al] tho nghta to which they wero severally ontitled under the constitution, but when any one or more of those 'tlU* demanded more than justly belonged to them or could be honorably granted by his State, she would're s>et all such demands, at all times and under all circum stances. Mr. Tappan read a letter from a distinguished member of the old whig party of Bascowan, X. H breathing strong constitutional sentiments, which Mr.' Tappan said reflected the views of the poople of bis State. Beyond this ho couM and would not go. Mr. Washburn opposed so much of the proposition of Mr. Dav.s as provides for the taking of a fugitive from the State whore be is ensured to the jndicLU <:n?trlci of the State from which he escaped, boforo he has a h.^r tog upon the charge of being a slave. He offered an amendment, that the rngit ve should havo an ei.-ur. --i tion in the placo where ho is arrested before being sur rendered to tho claimant. This was voted down. Mr. Seliocg, of Hiirni?, then offered an amendment, that tho fugitive, npen being taken to thi district from which he escaped, sln.'l havo tho benelt of a jury trial witnesses and a con: i, the cxpen. o of which trial bluUi be paid by the rjtuted Stater This amendment was carried, and Mr. Dav!?' resolu tk.n, ,s amended, wM adopted, nearly every member of **' Preient voting for it, except Messrs Adams, of Massachusetts; Wiwhburn, of Wisconsin I'hetps, of Missouii; Morrill, of Vermont, and r.innao o' Wew "ampf h?re. - w*vma'? A *:rrirt? effort is N It p made to carry the pr' f>*~.t'-m adoptejj>y tho Border titate Oommittoe through the two houses of Ooagrws. The Senate will undoubtedly adopt *t, but It is believe<l that there may bo found enourb aecowionmts to rote with the republicans to de feat it in tho Tie- ??. \n argument is presented to tho secessionists to induce them to support the plan, to tho effect that under it they need not ab.ui don but only postpone secession nnt.l Mexico con quered at the exr of the United States, and then the Gulf states c ui go out, tarrying Mexico with their and thereby not only hold the key to Gulf, dictato terms to the great grain growing West, wd control the transit across the Isthmus, but, with a v.at territory washed by the two great oceans, they can e tablish themselves as the France of thts continent and reopen ;ind carry on the African slave tra !o. This programme sounds very pret ?y, and If the secessionists will believe it long enongb to aave the Union somebody elso will have something to say about it afterwards. The secession speech of Senator Toombs, In the Senate to day, produced no particular sensation, as evwybod; went there to hear exactly what was said. A decided sensation was produced 11) the House this afternoon by the decided endorsement by that body of f.he conduct of Maior Anderson, and of the President, In sustaining the gallant commander of Fort Aimtcr The fact that nearly the whole Seuth voted against tbe pro position, and a united -Vorth was in favor of it, excite considerable comment in political and other circles this wning. The Senate, in executive seas>on this evening, hid Vide.- oons deration the nomination of Mr. Mrlnttre as Collector of Charleston. Tho subject wan referred to th ?I; r..pr?te committee. N*o test v >te was bad Tbe republican members of Oong.-ess learn ?hat It is the teunuoa of the s*eeesl?ni*ts to resist the paswge of the As.?.y and Navy Appropriation b.Us. ft is believed that the siui.e influences arc k-ep'ng tho Detk- eney bill from pass ng the Senate.

Tbe people la tie .Vorth are becomtnf aroused The vote of tbe Senate to day to go Into executive see sra m regarded a? very significant, and as Indicating a disposition to confirm the Charleston Collector no s<K?n a tho Vimmerci' Committee report it back to the ?Vmata Mr Hay,of Alabama, who is Chairman of that committee hav ing just returned, can def*af'&tion .by refusing to can the eemmiuee together; and even when they do meet there it a majority of Soot hern men on the com mittee.

In view of the statement to th?' country that the senti ment of Kentucky for secer^on is paramount, I am re queued to state, by Mr. Moore, representative of tho Ninth Congressional district of that State, that such ia not the fact with reference to his district. He has re ceived letters from the leaum*; men it, and resolutions passe J at moss mo< tinRS in diuerunt counties of his dis trict, all in favor of the Union, and expressing the opm" ion th.it whatever grievances Kentucky, or any other State m the South may have, cau be healed bett ;r inside tlan eutBidc of tho Union, and when redms cannot be obtained within the Union, it will be time enough to go out. Among iho letters received by Mr. Moore is one from Mr Cot, who represented tho same district in the Tuirty cmrth Congress, bicathing the strongest Union sectl n its. Mr. Cox says ? I tmo nn doubt the result will be a resolution on tho part of the people of a taj g<> lunjority of the Southern States to stand tlrm by 'he In ion and eon'iltut ion until time shall be given "nr Northern br< tbren io consider of their duty In this trying crisis. Mr. Moore received a series of resolutions, adopted at a meeting of the citizens of Maysville, in his district, one of which is to the effect that secession is the remedy for no evil, but would .iggra\ ate all the grievances of which we rem plain. The remarkable fact presented in the House this after noon, in its action supporting '.he conduct of Mr. Bu ' nan in sustaining Major Auderson, in that every rep, >i! r.-n voted for the President, and every democrat, ci(. pt a few unti secessionists, voted against him. The refusal of tho House to-day to suspend tlie ules to admit a Berios of resolutions offered by Mr. Etherldgc, embracing in substance the proposition agreed upon by tho Border State Committee, is viewed by some of the Union nscn of the South as a bad omen. Besides, the adoption of the resolution supporting the policy of Mr. Buthanan in sustaining M^jor Anderson is viewed as A declara ion in favor of coercion. INTERVIEW OP DUFF GREEN WITH MP*. LINCOLN ON THE CRISIS. WxranNCTo*, Jan. 6, 1841. Since my despatch of the 4th I have soon and conversed with Duff Green upon the subject > f bis viaH to Spring field. He speaks of Mr. Lincoln with much rospect, and believes that he fcincercly wishes to administer the government in such manner an to satisfy the South; that ho will not favor emancipation in the District of Colum bia, nor in tho forts or dockyards in the Souttiorn States, i.or will he favor an interference with tho trade in stoves between the Southern States; but says that liaving resided so long in a nonslaveliolding State, Mr. Lincoln lias taken an active part in opposing what he terms the extension of slavery Into tbo Territories, and believes that this constituted one of the chief issues in the late canvass, and is thereforo firmly and unequivo cally r< Ived to make no concessit n on this point unless it bo adjusted by an amendment t > tnn ? ^tKution. Mr. Lincoln, uo fur as his views are indicated by the journal supposed to be a. i vised by him, bulicvos that secession is r bellirn, and is resolved to iuo faroo to suppress and numth it. In reply to the inquiry Of wh.V will gptisfy the South, Mr Green rlaood in his hands a copy of Mr. Cirttonden's resolutions, and said that he hot! boon told that,although Messrs. Davis, of Mississippi, and Toombs, of Georgia, votct' iptlS't 'V. e resolutions as being unsatisfactory to them ? or '1 \ 'h > had both ?a!d in tho Senate's com mitt*'tii tri'i c J by tho other Side in good faith, ? = L is of : jiu- ."Ot, they would accept thetn for Hi. Mr. Grocu endeavored to satisfy Mr. Lincoln th.it the !no\eiii-.ni ui the South to not tuo ie ult of any personal objection to hlK>, nor i>f a ur a pmrpnHc to dixso.'vo tiio Union; t ut or an eai nest belief of the n* ;est:ity of ad ditional c "nt'ti.'iornl guarantees for tho pro toction of their rights In the Tnion. He Baid the South believe that the federal governments a oonp* t between independent sovereign Hate?, which, at the time of their aooopuncc of tho con stitution, by refusing tocreatc an umpire with authority to decide questions arising between them and the common government, and reserving the powers cot delegated or inhibited to them by the constitution. had each reserved the ri?;ht for itself to judge of infractions of the constitu tion, snd of the mode and measure of redress. That at the time of the adoption of the constitution all the States h? iu slaves. Thai the constitution not only recognised ihorijilit of property in slaves, but authorised the con tinuanee of tho African slave trade, and made an express pro v si ion for the surrender of fugitive slavep, that no one at that time could have anticipated thai the time would comc it hen. having sold their slaves to tbo South, and received pay for them as property, ont.tiod to the protection of the federal government, the Northern ftatos would organise a sectional major'ty and obtain the control of tho fedora! government up >na pledge that tho whole in fluence nnd patronage of that government will be ex/?rtcd in a continuous, and persevering ?(fbrt to ?naaotp*to the slaves, ' ho have so n.oJi incroa^ed in numbers and in value tliat tho Southern cannot consent to rema n as members of a government which is to be permanent ly nndT the control of a sectional majority, organised is a political sectional party, on the bas s of a warfare on the institutions of the South?that the efleit of re naming in such a will be the same as 'f they had b<M*n a conquered urovinee?that if they had been conq terod by the sword, and held subject to the despotic will of a national government, that government aw Id Impose no heavier or more disgraoetii bupl.-ns than be impose', upon them by tbesaite sectloiiil government which, having conquere?l them through the ballot box wtelus the swoi d to enforce their will an l compel them to pay the taxes and to hear the burden* imposed under tbe !? uis oi laws penned l.y the same inflexible *> initial Northern ma jority? that *uch a condition of the go, '.rn mmt f' prives the South of sll tbet is valuable In govern ment, ?nd subjects tlem tc the .iprice of the worst pos Mbio form of de*pot'? ?that ho hat! become satisfied that Uio members of Congress, who had beer elected as i embers of that scctiorai msjori*/, ue using the pre ?en-- that * ey nr? uppo I'd to the extension of slave-y nttie7<" ? s as i iu ?ns of preserving their nection al srira' cvtion, hecanse they see thai If they reVnquish ?.,at preteneo and permit the question of slavery in ho Territories to be adjusted, then tho Booth will bee une a pait of tho I nited States, and have if? 1uo pro portionate ;P floe nee in tbe government; that It * a then tie a psrt of the wl ole, instead sf being as it id now and Duet forever remain, a mere gr jtionai minority, with no rignts, or powers, or influence m tho government except b' arh rdcas and pay so long as opp-<sjtion to slavery j! made tbo text of political ascendency To ? bo suggestion that if the present agitation be quieted by th-' extoitkin of tb" )L?Mifi compromise nno to the Pa cific, tbe question wlli bo revived by an attempt to ab -orh i'exlc i and U) "Xteod thi system of s!avery info Mox!"0. Mr Orson irg?d that since Cain slew his brother 'lie great question of soclcti bad b??wl>it part of tbe Joint prodtieta of capital an<l labor shall go to capital .ind what to latrtr. that this question bad resoired itself into two syt'lems?wages labor and slave labor; that Mr ?<ewiird had admitted this tnitb.and had emioavored to arra> the North and tbe wages labor of the North igauwt tbe South by assuming that there is an "irrepressible conflict" between tbe two systems; whereas, the truth is, that the conflict Is not between tbe systems, but between the capital and labor which constitutes the system of wages labor; and irged that this truth is forcibly illustrated by tho sfTe t of wages labor m Kugland and Wales tad of slave labor in tbe Jloutb that after the eon at <e? of the nunneries and mot arteries which, ondei a. Papal system, were barged with providing for the poor, that duty was devolved spen the pariehoF; i ad the con filet between capital which gavo employ ment snd U? wage* ujor of Rof uu.4 and wale* wu* such ware by oflU-W rtUrB\J? 1'arl.aineol) that .11 thirty eight years, from 1?1> to l?W? inclusive. iho sum levied in England and Wale: ukrao as tor rates wtf more than one thouwnd it roe hundred ,d . igbty-eight millions of dollars, showme that th.

In England ami W.iWs, when oapUal pays labor the stipulated w ai-ff ujwr has no further claim on capital short of the workhouse nd the poor rate*. tu tho South, wlwn the slave child W born or tho skive is purchased, iho law creeK* a contract between the slaves and the mailer,and as they arc required to labor, so he is required to provide for to feed,? . .he and protect them in infancy and old age' in sickt.e. and in health; and the mantor who falls to d ischarge th duty is not only pur diable under the laws, but wpul be put under the ban of public opinion, tia d that the measures and policy ''' land I,-,e dictated hy her commercial interests; t n ?? uu" facturcs were the sourco of her wealth aud prosperity; that having a loflslutivo contract over parts of Africa and India, she exchanges her manufactures for the tropical products of Africa and India, which products she sells to other European nations, hav. ing few or no tropical colonies, aud tbuscollectsa tribute in shape of commercial protlts from those w ho would other wise be her competitors in the markets of the world. That such being tho interests of England, the influence of her pulpit, her pres., bor schools, her poet., her phdoeophcre aud her statesmen was exorted in fur iherance of her policy, dictatod by her necessities. s she ha<l the legislative control over the conitncroe or parts of Africa and India, and could regulate that commerce so as to monopolize its profits, whilst having no controlover the products of tlavc labor in Cub., Brazil and the United States, and therefore could not monopolize its profit?, It became her interest to make a war of public opinion against African slavery. Kew England Is a servile copy ist of Old England. Having transferred her slaves to tho Southern States, it was a natural anl easy procoss for John Q. Adams to organize a sectional anti-slavery party in New England, which, originating in an abstract idea that slavery is cruel, unjust and sinful, although confined at first to a few fanatics, has progressed until it has in come a powerful political sentiment, which, availing it scK of other cxcitlng causes, has becomo a majority, uot ol he whole but of the Northern States, and having thus placed the power of tho government in the hands of a minority of the people, are resolved to enforce the absolute control of this minority by a civil war, under the prctcnce that they are a ma ioritv and therefore authorized to enforce their party platform by the sword. To this he said the South will not submit. She will not become a subject pro vince. conquered by the ballot box She will not rcmam part of a government which is plodgedJU. exert its power Mid influence to disparage and deprive her of tho right? wi ioh it is the duty of that government to protect. In reply and comment on the idea of the excellence of Northern civilization, and the barbarism and sinfulness or aUvery aa enforced hy Northern schoolmen, philosophers wad tiartlzan presses and p.dpits. Mr. Green urged that there is an iuscrutlble law regulat.ng all created things, which provides that wherever the stronger and the weaker are brought in conflict, there is no alternative but war and extermination, or else subjection and pro tect .on. 1 or ii the iKgii nins tho earth brought (orth urass and herb yielding seed after his kin-, and the tree yielding fruit whose seed wux in itself aft / its kind; and God created great whales, and every living creaturc that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundant |y a<"tcr their kuid. and every winged fowl after its kind; and (ion made the bet of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and eyer-thlng thit creep*I. on the earth after 11* kind; and Ood created n::..i in R. own image, and gave him dominion oyer tho l*h of the ?ea and over the fowl of the air. aud over ovory . v.ng th ri?-Vh?t ?or,.,h ..r- ?-?'? ?'??

They will not consent to he a conquered province, whether that conqucst bo by the ballot box or the sword. The leaders in Congress are clamorous for civil war.

Much of this may be quite correct, but a \ ery groat dea' of it is extremely exaggerated, ami not a little totally fic titious. Ho m;iny startling rumor1, conflictmc with and often contradictor) of each oth r, ore borne :o th.s city along the wires, that the public, unable to disci imuuite between the false and true, arc kept in a perpetual f'jver anxiety.

All these reports fan the popular lire into flume, and htnoe the no tice token in tlie Senate to day of a system of misrepre sentation, not less detrimental to the public welfare thou annoying to individuals. No despatches, however, sre more deserving of censure, as unjust and mischievous, than those sent from this city to the Charleston Mercury and ihe Columbia Caroimiign, during the time "ibe Commissioners'' honored us with their presence. They were calculated to m if load the peo ple of South Carolina, and drive them on in their career. 1 have K, however, trom reliable authority, that Messrs. Barnwell and Orr, at least (if not Mr. AiUuns), would exert their influence, on their return homo, to prevent any attack upon Fort Sumter, and generally to stay all proceedings that would precipitate armed collision with the federal forces. And this intelligence has contributed to allay somewhat the painful solicitude which the bogus despateitbs of yesterday were calculated to produce. \ WiSHrfoww, .Tan. o, 1861.

It seemed i to liHto uece j-ary. lu the distracted Btate of the public councils it would be better to submit tho question to tho people thenn elvec, and he saw nothing improper in It. It does not conflict in any way with the constitution. Ho referred to the proposed amendments to tho constitution, and argued iu favor of their adoption, lie contended that the establishment or a lino dividing tho Territories was not so much ft compromise as a fair adjustment of rights. He ask'-d ir statesmen and Senators would rather encounter rivil war in .ill its horrors than make a fair compromise, and recognise th.' existence of slavery lu n Territory till it becomes a State? Was It a parly dogma that no slave Slate shall be admitted to tho Unlou? And will Senator J sacrifice the country for a mere party dogma)' The territory was acquired as tho aommon pro perty or all, and now a few attempt to ex clude a |iortion from their Just rights, because they have conscientious scruples on the subject.. Were ?eiittt>irs willing to sacrifice the country rather than yield their scruples? Hut as a matter of right, have Senators any right to exclude any properly? The constitution was founded by men who well knew we had differ ant Institu tions in dim-rent parts of the country, and no ser.tlou of tho e "t.trv has o. right to set up a particular minion as H nil. for all the rent. Suppose the different sections bad diUereiil religiuns, would one. section try to establish h reli';iut for the other?

What doee this rebel demand v That these States bare eqnal rights to go late the common Territories and rsmaM there with their property, and be protected by the government till such Territories shall became States We have fought for this Territory when blood was ita prtoa Wa have paid for It when money was the prloe.

We demand that a common goveri. talent shull use its power to protcct our property aa well as yours. We pay as much as you <lo. Our property hi subject to taxation. Wo claim that that government which recognises our property for taxation should five it tho game protection it dot r to your property. Shall it not do it? You i<ny no' You in 'ho Senate gay no! The House says not And throughout the length and breadth of j our whole conspiracy ? "t the constitution there Is one phout of uol It .16 price or my alio giance. Withhold it, and you don't get my obedience. There is the philosophy of the armed men that have spring up in this country, ami 1 luid rather nee tho popu l&tion of mv own, my native land, beneath the sod, thwi that they should support for ono hour such a govern tueut. 1'rotertion is tho price of obedience every where, In all countries. It is the only thtng that makes "govern uxmts respectable. Deny It, and you cannot iiave free Subjects tor eitiwns. You may have slaves. I demand, thirit, that persons eommttting crimes against ';Uvo pro perty in one Statu ?nn.U be delivered up by another State to which they may have fled. That is another of tho di aiands of mi extioiiiiot and a rebel. Mr. Toombs then referred to the fourth article of the constitution an support nig thi* demand, and proceeded. But the nen sUvehoiding 1-tateg, regardless of their oaths and compacts, have steadily refused ui return the men who have Etol?i nrgrous, if th..f?e u.groos were slaves. This was done long ago in Maine We remun erated and appealed lor fraternity. But tills article of the eonstiiution ha.- been a dead letter to us from tli.it day to this. The Hon.uor from New York (Mr. Seward) also, when Governor, refused this right to Vir ginia. Jle "aid it was not against tb? laws of Now York to steal negroes, and he v .i < not deliver tip the man. And tnese arc our C"ufei rated?our sister States. There is a bargain and a compact. l%ey swore to it, but you canuot. hind them by an oatb. They have a higher law. I suppose you wiU under take to whip freemen into loving such brethren as that. You will have a good time of it, no doubt. Wo want that provision of the constitution carried out. Of course you look out lor pretexts. I never knew s<> bold a per jurer that would not invent somn pretext. The next de mand is that fugitive slaves dull bo surrendered, accord ing to the act of I860. The constitution he. provided for tub, rendition. (He read that article of the constitution.) But the Northern States Lave tried always to evade this. First, they got up the Action that thoy wore entitled to the habeas corpus act in the States to which the fugitive had flod. Thoy did not require that for a white man. White men might he delivered up e\ ory day, but not slavey. He then referred to the speech of the Senator from Vermont (Mr. Collamer) in reply to his own, and read from the act of Vermont, in 1S58, declaring slaves free, whether coming voluntarily or involuntarily to the State. Mr. Coixamxh, (rep.) of Vt., said he did not refer IOMrlT^MMsaid, by ft miBUkfi 'nr.^'rencp, he M made to rerer to a prior act, and the Senator took ad?" tagt of that mistake. It was adroitly or iguorautly done, I don't know which: and this la another of ?<*?; for whom we arc to liave so groat an attwUment. There was a i It'&r act, but in the oourao of the I Dgrim n Pro gress ihey came to niako this refusal without any act at all Tbey can subvert the constitution now without narking iWonal liberty bills 1 undertake to nay here that no black republican legislature will ever say it Is their dutyto renier ha.:lc fugitive slave-. rbey^t ? U-nd to do it. They intend U> get potion of this vernment, and to use their power against us. The Mvt demand is, that no State slull paw any Uw intended to disturb tho peace and tranquility oilier State.
