Last night we had the greatest political demonstration of the season. It was the Jhrong ecasion fiJr, tfc of the new Oregon Senator, Col. Ba­ ler's welcome*.- Hi* friend* ra'l'ed in such in and about the American Theatre, ^js never were packed into, and spilled out any building in California, to hear any man before. Everybody was there, and hosts 9,f ladies beside. lie had hard work to make lis Popu'ar Sovereignty and his thorough %re Republicanism travel in harness togctb or without hitching, but he did it. He took back nothing of tha Popu'ar Sovereignty of lis Oregon speeches, nor ba'ed a hair of his lid irrepressible up-to-the-handle Anti-Slave ry. lie rode along the lin^s elrawn up fcr ie battle, assuring the timid, confirming cringeou". Ifo spoke for two hrurs an 1 a q-nrie:*, and not a fellow budged an inch from his seat till ha ended. He takes down and puts out of si jrht all the others cf our Pacific orators. He is merry by instinct, in his most serious arguments. How he sometimes carries awny his audience an in cident will show He had been saying that "even where despotism is rife, ideas of per sonal liberty are thriving. Even under shad ow of the throne of Russia—on the banks of the Seine, where the ashes of the first Na poleon repose—where the British Queen in majestic dignity presides over a nation cf freemen—every where a bread the great ideas of personal liberty spread, increase and fruc tify. Here—ours is the exception In this home of th? exile, in this land of constitu tional lib M'tv, it left for us to tench the world that Slaveiy marches in solemn pro cession that 1 nder the American stare, Sla very has protection, and the name offreedom must be faintly breathed— the songs offree dom be faintly sung Garibaldi, Victor Itmanuel, hosts of good men, are praying, fighting, dying on scaffolds, in dudgeons, oftener on the battle field*, f«»r Freedom.— And while this great procession marches §nder the arches of Liberty, we also shrink Itack, trembling and afraid, when Freedom is hut*mentioned." The audience cheered, of course, but a gentleman on the platform, whom all knew—an invilid—apparently carried away with enthusiasm, rushed to the foot-lights, and with extended arms, expres sive vehemence, and hollow voice, exclaimcd: "It is true it is true, gentlemen. We are slaves compared with the rest of the world. The Colonel is right !"—then, pale as a ghost, staggered to his seat. Possibly, some may think that the Colonel since his election may be a little lukewarm in his Republicanism— cooled by the fusion with the Douglas party, Let such read the following and judge for themselves. He had been talking about tbe Union, when pausing suddenly he said: "But here somebody recovers his wits and seems to address me 'Col. Baker, what say you to Seward's irrepressible conflict -ItVhy this: If Mr. Seward had that opinion, •t think he had a right to express it. And I apprehend it is your opinien, too.

You, Breckin ridge men, if there is a little vein of piety in you inherited from your mothers, [laughter,] not practiced by you perhaps—even you must hope that some day Slavery will be -.Abolished. Mr. Clay—and he was no aboli tionist—used to felicitate himself that, by the freed slaves of our laud, civilization wo'd yet be carried to the banks of the Niger.— Read Pone's Messiah—I dont know that Pope was an abolitionist—though poets are apt to be. Homer was, Shakespeare was, the Bible is, and Pope would be in very good company if he was. So long as there is a slave and a master in the world, the slave's heart will throb for freedom. Educate him and he will fight for it—and you, to save vour soul, can't help saying 'Hurrah for the weaker party [Cheers.] I would phoulder my rifle to suppress insurrection find yet in my own impulses, in the debth my own reflection, I feel that if Mr. Seward, looking forward with the eye of a great states man and philosopher, said the conflict was irrepressible—God go with him I indorse the sentiment.'

Tliere is no danger.— Disunion is far away. The he«rt of the peo ple is right. It is a plain, honest, simple duty you have to perform. All the omens are good, and the best of omens is a good cause. On the Pacific cost we have labored long—we have been scoffed, lje'.esgued and beset. One year ago, a few days past, I, your champion in your fair State, was beaten in a fair contest. With my heart somewhat bruised, my ambition crushed, one week la ter I stood by the body of my friend Broder ick, slaughtered in your cause, and I paid, 'How long?' [Sensation.] The tide is turned The wairior, indeed, rets. He knows no waking—nor word, nor wish, nor prayer can call him from his lone abode.

I Plizo I shall be extremely happy and extremely came forward, the log was brought in, and the song of "The Maul and the Wedge"— the anvil chorus—was well rendered. Then, with more cheers, thc meeting was dismissed, and the great mass of men and women thronged into thc street. ArUuiui Ward Visits Brig ha Ifonaiif.
