I1 trough tbe ecertiocH of Henry Clay the question waa fluUly settled hy a compromise, a bill being passed tor tbe adaswswet of Missouri without any restriction as to ?*htv?ry, but prohibiting it throughout tl.e Dulled Plates north of latitude thirty sis degrees and thirty minute*. It was not until August. IH21, however, that tho State waa declared an independent sovereignty. Previous to this, the people had formed a Htate constitution, one pro risioti of which required the Legislature t? pass a law ?'to prevent iree negroes frtm coming to and settling in the State." When presetted to Congress tula provision was Mrcnuouidy opoosed, but Missouri waa finally ad mitted. on condition that no law should be passed by which any citizen of either of tbe States of tbe Uni< :i should be excluded from the enjoyment of any of the privileges and immunities to which such citizen ia en titled under the constitution of the United states. The vote upon the paassge or the bill In tho I louse was M to M, several members from non-slavcholdlng Stales voting for it. In tbe Senate it was passed by two to one?2(8 to 14. Thus was settled the diatracting question, am) peace once more restored to tho councils of the country, but the agitation of the subjeit or silvery then commenced has never ceased, and it is-not difficult to traee to that period, through a long line of closely connected events, the origin of our present troubles. INDIAN TROUBLES IN CFORGIA?1825. From tbe earnest periods of the colonial settlements it had been the policy of the government, by successive ^ purcharee of their territory, to remove tbe Indians fur ther and further to the West. Under this policy in ' the Northern and Middle States they had bo * come nearly extinct; in the South and West ., they still remained numerous and formidable, and owned w vast bodies of land?In Georgia, nine a half million of acrea; In Alabama, sores and a half million; In Missis sippi, fifteen and three quarter millions; in tbe Territory of Florida, four millions; In the Territory of ArkanRas, fifteen and a half millions; In the State of Missouri, two aailllona an<l three-quarters; In Indiana and IUinola, flf 9 teen millions, and in Michigan, east of the lake, seven millions. All these States were naturally anxious to get posseaalon of there lands and be relieved of the unwel conic red m?n within their limits. Georgia held the United States bound by a compact to relieve her, by which the general government agreed, in consideration of Georgia relinquishing her claim to the Mississippi territory, to extinguish at the national expense the Iudlan title to the lands " whenever it could be peaceably done and upon reasonable terms." 3ince making that agreement the government had extinguished the title to about fifteen ?IMion seres, and oonveyed the same to the estate of Georgia. There still remained 8 537,000 acres in the pos session of the Indians, of which 6,2?2 000 acres belonged to the Cherokecu and the remainder to tbe Cre< k ration. Shortly Wore 'he termination of Mr. Monroe's idiuiois tration. the State government became very urgent for the entire removal of the Indians, and at the solicit ttion of the Governor two Commissio-ens were appointed to make a treaty with the Creeks')or tbe purchase of tlr-ir lands. This was a treaty negotiated on the 12th of l<Vbruary, 182ft, th famous Chiet, General William Slulu tosb, signing it in the presence of Mr. Cro*rell,1he United Statin Indian Agent, by which all the Croek oount-y and eeverai million of acres in Alabama wore coded to the United State*. Complaints followed it to Washington us having been concluded by Mcintosh without the autho rity i f tbe nation. The ratification of the treaty was opposed, but was finally carried by the strong vote of thirty-four to four. This Function on reaching tho ears of the dieoo.itfntei Creeks product d great excitement, an<l a secret OJuncil of the nation being called, th'y resolved not to accept the treaty. The death of Mcintosh was determined on, and on the 30th of April his house wa* surrounded by a party who shot him and another chief, and burned his pre mie or. This presented a new question, onl Georgia, deter mining te execute tbe treaty at all hazards, by taking possesion of the cedo l territory, a controversy resulted between that State and the general government. The new President, Mr. Adams, b icame impressed that lite treaty had been made without doe author it?, and th%t its execution ought not to beenf 'iced, and seut Goa. Gaines with federal troops to the con (lues of Georgia. All Georgia was >n a flame at tt's view of foroe, and the neighboring Stati s sympathised with her. Moin while, the President treated tnrthor, and assembling the head uiuu ?f the Creeks at Washington, in January, 1326. concluded ?anew treaty, which was substituted for tho oli one, whereby all the lauds in GoorgU wore cedel.but none m Alabama. Notwithstanding the opposition of the Georgia dckgetlca in Cbagrees, the new treity was ra tified by the denote at the ensuing ee^aloo by a vote of thirty to seven, and the appropriations wr re made by the House of Representatives by a voto of tno hundred end sixty seven to t<n Tbus w.is carried into effect, after a dc'ay of a quarter ef a century, and after great and Just Complaint on tho Krt of Georgia, the compact between that State and tbe iMed States of 1*02. This disturbance was In a measure renewed in 1830, when th) Indians claimel to be an Independent peiple under the treUy, but by the energetic action of the Georgia Legislature It was speedily quelled and order restored. THE NULLIFICATION TR0TTOLE8 OP 1B32. Few event* of a logislatlve character more disturbed the general government than illd those growing ont of tbe celebrated Tariff question, anil finally resulting in the passage by South Carolina of what bave since been .known as the Nullification resolutions of 1*32. The agitation of this question commenced In the year 1828, the bill introduced in Congress that year being -ohiofly tho work of manufacturers an t politicians, and designed for thebenoflt of the woollen interest; but it was ?vectually made to include a suflleient > ?rlaty of manu facturing to give It tbe strength necessary to its sueecss. Introduced in the politics of the day It became an administration measure and an Issue in the Presidential cent est between President .tackson an I Mr. Adam*. The South,'believing itself impoverished to enrieh the North toy this system, strongly manifested their opposition, sod the topic which became the leading feature of the debate wiii'.h followed, (in which Daniel Webster, of Massachu sietts, and Mr. Hayne, of South Carolina, were the cham pion speakers,) was that of nullification, or the right of a Wtate to annul an act of Congress. About this time, April 13, 1X80, the anniversary of the toirtbday of Thomas Jefferson was celebrated by a do ?serous company lit Washington city, among whom were the President and Vice President of the United States, several members of bin Cabinet and a onm areas attend *nee of the mernb rs of Congress. With the prnoinlga tton of the toasts the feeling began to spread that the dinner was got up to inaugurate the doctrine of nullltlcv eten and make Mr. Jefferson Its fathnr, ho b ius the author of the oe'ebrated Kentucky reaoh'tlSM of 1798, in which the idea was claimed to have been tnt set forth, and which have bei n herein)>efore quoted.

Though an i&signiflodnt affair in its natural a^pec>r, as regards either extent or influeiice, Dorr's rebellion in Rh<>de Island may be racked nmoi.g the "shocks" which h?ve i Ih?d expt r ifnco.l by the body politic ainco its crgauzition, and as such a brief history of the fame is here inserted. Tbo circumstances were briefly these:?Tbo government of Rhode Island, in 1833, was based upon a charter granted by Charles II., in 1608, and the apportionment of representation In the Legislature was greatly at variance w.ih the distribution of population. The elective I franchiso wus limited to the holders of a certain araoun ( of real estate and to their elilcst sons. About one-third I only of the cltize&n were voters. About this time I Thomas W. Dorr, a lawyer, born In rrovidence, ap j peared upon the stag'), and, being ejected a mem j bir of the Assembly, exerted himself for a num | ber of years to procure the substitution of a lihoral constitution in place of the old charter; but his movement for reform obtained In the VgisNi'ure only wv< n out of seventy votes. H'' then resorted to popu I lar rgltatlon, nnd organized a suffrage party In opposition I to the charter pwrty. Afier holding rs/ernl Urge mass i conventions in 1841, this euifrsge party culltxl a ddogite State Convention to frntn<i a new conatitutlim, which vr.is ; submltto i for ratification to the popular vile. It' re | ccived fourteen thousand votes?a c'oar majority of the cltlxens of the State. The charter party, however, con teudod that the whole proceeding was seditions, and that a largo proportion of those votes wero fraudulent. Mr. Dorr^tbought differently, however, an 1 a^'iming I that the constltmkin was tbi; fundamental Uw of the i State, proceeded in aeordancn with It to hold au election . for State cfllcera. Mr. Dorr was chosen Governor, and a legislature composed exclusively of his supporters was ele ted. to meet at l'rovidence on tli>- tirst Monday of ! May, 1.S42. The chatter p*rty aU-> hold an nhvtiin for State ollie<rs, piling 6,700 votes, while the snllriigo party claimed to have polled 7.3C0. On the Sd of May Dorr's government attempted toorgan lze at l*rovii>eiK.o and seize the reins of powor. They were resisted by the legal Htatc governaent, which assembled | at Newport on the seme day, and at ttio head of which whs tiov. Hamoel W Kinr Itoth side" appealed to arms. The excitement wus iutenfe, and tb_> pi>ple flocked to ! the r< spective standards in Urge numbers from various New 1'ngland f*tat<?s. Oov. Kthg proclaimed the Mate und*-r martial law, call 1 cd oat the nnHtia and ashed and obtained the ail of the I United States to suppress tbo treison. On the I9ih of i May a porticn of the sudrage psrty af?emh!ed at I'rovl i den< e under arms anil utt-mptod to seise th? arsenal, but | were dispersed by 4Jov. King and a military force. Tliey assembled again, to the nun l>cr of soviVnl kndrM, Ma fb, ISIS, at Cbepachat Mill, tan miles f rom ; Providence, but again dispersed on the approaoh of the HUte foicis. Three <Uys olterwa-da the aiCiir was over. ! Itorr fled from the Mate, nnd took refuge first in Con ! necticut, and then tn Now Hampshire. A reward of beiDg offered for his apprehension by Rhode : Itland, he voluntardy returned home, w.u tried, con victed of h'gli tr?n?on, and sentenced to ImprHonnvnt for life. In 1847 ho w is pardoned, and in 1868 tbele gislature reatired him to )iU rlvll rich's, nnd ordered tbe record of tats sentence to be expaiifed. He lived to see a liberal coo*) itutiou and bis party In possession of the j reins of government.

Within two months s'.x Ststeshave seceded from the Union and formed a confederate govern "mentor their own, which has gone into aotlvo operation. Others are wavering. A new administration is about coming into power, and all eyes are anxiously turned to the individual *'im whom Is expected to emanate the sentiments that are to determine the weal or woe of oar country. The Inaugural has already boon given to the cwntrv, but while it is rlaimnd to be Orm and conciliatory on the one hand, on the oth< r, in the minds of the people of the South, it brratbrs naught but coercion, and has driven 11,? m to measures of preparation for defence. The prepent is d.a>k nnd lowering. The future liis not yet r< vealed a single ray of sunshine.

Our well known fellow citizen, Sign or Gsjanl, delivered a very interesting lecture on this subject at eight o'clock Thursday evening before the Geographic*! and Statistical Pociety, in Clinton llall, Astor plaee. There was a very re spectablo attendance of the intellectuality of the city. Mr. tiajani began by sa] ing that the polit leal greatness of Italy bail always dt|>ended upon her geographical po sition. Italy was independent of all other nations, having in herself the elements of national prosperi ty. The time was near at hand wh?n this land would tike the lead in once more opening" up the ancient road of commerce to the Ea*t. Italy had never been united except under the Romans, an4 it iras nearly fourteen centuries ago since she had lust her dis t.ncl nationality. But the Italians hid always felt that hey should be an independent nation. For this ilea iliey fcavo lived anil striigglo.1, ami fought and ill id. And to thu Joy of the liberal worli, (be day of Italian freedom had come at last. The lecturer went on to consider th ' state of parties ii Kuro) e r.t the present time.

FORTS SUMTER AND PICKENS TO BE RE ENFORCED. Washington, March 8,18G1. The statement that Mr. Roman, one of the Com missioners from the Southern confederacy, had arrived here, is untrne. Up to this evening he Lad not reached Washington. Mr. Crawford has in formation that he left New Orleans some days ago, and therefore he is hourly expected. As soon as he arrives here it is expected they will have an interview with President Lincoln. The preliminary steps to that end have already been taken. It is pretty well settled tint their mission will prove a failure. Mr. Lincoln has de cided upon the policy he intends to pursue, and it will be fully carried out by (Jen. S:ott, through the War und Navy departments. General Scott, Secretary Holt, General Came ron and the Secretory of the Navy were in confe rence for several hours to-day. They were ar ranging matters looking to the reinforcement of forts Sumter and Pickens, and it will be carried out very elaborately. General Scotthas been studying this matter fully for some time, and it is understood, lias arranged it to his entire satisfy lion. He is of the opinion that reinforcements can be thrown into Fort Sumter easily and with bat little loss of life. Ma jor Anderson, however, is of a different opinion. He believes it would be useless to send less than fifteen or twenty thousand m>n to Charleston har bor. This number would bo able to silence their batteries aud other means of defence, and suc cessfully reinforce Kumter with men and supplies. Both arms, the Army and Navy, of the govern ment will be actively employed t>r some time to come in ?arryhig out the policy of the n?w ad ministration. Orders to this effect have, it is be lieved, already been issued; and it was for this reason that Colonel Cooper, Adj'iiant General, through whose department all orders have to be issued, resigned his position in rL- army. There will bo other resignations of distinguished officer* when this matter is fully known. The events of the next two wei-ks South will be exceedingly interesting and highly important. The border slave State influences, it i? said, are operating upon the administration for the aban donment of Forts Suin'.er and Pickens. IMPORTANT MOVEMENTS IN TIIE NAVY AND ARMY.
