Never in the history of the Ameiicm Con- gross has there b'-vn witnessed so intense an anxiety 0 bear a speech asth.'.t which prece ded thedilivery of Mr. Seward's, on iiatur-1 day afternoon. This absorbing interest was not confined to Washington, hut extended throughout the Union. T'-lcf-ranhic dis patches denoting the drift and points of the spe ch were teli graphed every fifteen rnin ntes various cities. Mr. Seward ha bis remarks printed in advance of lh"ir delivery,! and copies were sent to the 1 'adin:r papers in s»aport cities, simultaneous!}* with its ut terance here. No speech ever received in this country so wide a perusal in so brief n! time. Millions have already read it and! cviTV word and sentence has !ecn weighed and "considered. The effect that it will pro- remains le seen. What gave so mu 'li interest nnd weight I to the Senator's words, was tqe belief that it was equivalent to a speech from Lincoln him self, lie sp ike on the great cri-i.s as the I Premier of the new Admnistra ioi\ and au 1 thoritatively indicated to thc country the full extent to which Mr. Lincoln is prepared to go in the direct:on of concessions to the Oli garchy, and the dicy he will pursue in re Mst'ng secession and ujdioMing the Union. Mr. Seward spike not for himself, or #s a Sena!or, but as the Prime Minister f*r the new Administratis n. Hence the importance which popular belief attached to his oracular utterances, and the irrepressible desire to hear the speech. Men came here from Bos ton, Buffalo, New York, Richmond, Balti more and elsewhere—too impatient to wait a few hours or minutes to read it in the papers. Hours before the Senate met, the galleries were 'full to crushing and fainting. The lobbies and clork rooms wcrelitcrally packed with an anxious throng. The floor of the Senate was invaded by hundreds of ladies who were the wives and daughters of mem ber. an.l Cabinet Ministers. But so offens ivc was their presence to thc immaculate nnd sensitive Toombs, that he grullly insisted on the enforcement of the rules in relation to priviled *d persons, which expelled them from thc chamber. They unanimously voted him a brute as well as traitor in which verdict few of the nt&les declined to acqui esce. Long aft the surging crowd had jammed the halls and entrances and blocked the ap proaehes to the chamber, the living stream continued to flow towards the Senate wing of the Capitol. A part of the overflow swept into the spacious House naileries, tilling them w't'i a disappointed audience to witness the withdrawal of the Mississippi disunion mcni IKTS, and the passage of the Navy Appro priation bill, which Sherman by skillful ma I neuvcring managed to get through the House. Mr. Seward commenced speaking at twen ty minutes to one, and consumed over two hours in the delivery of his discourse lie spoke slowly, making frequent pauses, and often with much pathos. When he drew Iiis grand picture of the greatness and glory of the Union, and ther. drew the dark outlines of a dismembered Republic, grave Senators freely shed tears, and thc stillness of death reigned in the chmaber, as the vast audience strain 1 their caiv and eyes to catch every tone and gesture. The scene was deeply impressive, as the great man, clothed with authority to.speak in behalf of a powerful nnd vict trious party to the defnted minority who refuse 1 to submit to the popular verdict, plead for Ahc Union, and depicted thc evils and horrors that would befall those who were madly bent on its destruction. The whole diplomatic cirps were present, and gave the docpest attention to every word. When he concluded, many of them anxiously inquired of Senators to know whether his views would be accepted, and if the difficulty would be healed? Thc foreign ministers, without exception, regard the Secessionists jas palpably in the wrong. They can see no .just or sufficient cause for the wicked course the Disunionists are pursuing and such is the verdict of all civilized nations. All Eu rope dedan s that the alleged grievances of thc .slaveholder are unfounded, and their i demands for "great concessions" unjustilia-, hie nnd preposterous. But how was the speech received The Toombs and Wigfall school of politicians rid-1 icule it. and scornfully repel the proffered olive branch. No compromises with the North, no union with the free States, are their declarations. Crittenden says it will do as a first step towards conciliation, but there can be no peace until the Republicans give up their principles, and accept his slave code propositions. The reconstructionists, of the Hunter and Breckinridge school, say there is 110 use in talking of compromises until after the Union is dissolved. A Southern Con-' federaey must first be erected. When it has made a Constitution to suit the slaveholders, then such of the free States as will accept such Constitution will be admitted into the Southern Confederacy. Crittenden's slave code compromise is put forward to distract and divide the North while the wark of dis union is being carried forward. It is for this base purpose the poor, frail, old mnn, i now verging on second childhood, is pushed be the crafty, cunning conspirators. i With all moderate men Mr. Seward's! speech must produce a happy effect. It 1 cannot be ot.herw'se. Some of the more' radical Rej ublicans consider it a letting down, and complain, that if not an abandonment of principle, it is too temporizing in the face of treason. But thc majority view it differently, Mr. Seward being about to enter the Cabinet, and believing that civil war is eminent, de termined i.i behalf of Mr. Lincoln and the i Republican party, to offer as liberal a propo-1 sition to the slaveholders, as could be done without an abdication of cherished principles and a betrayal of the rights of the free labor i masses. He went to the utmost verge of con 1 cession short of humiliation and dishonorable surrender. Could he have gone an inch far- ther without abandoning the platform of his own party "and of conceding away a part of the platform of the Northern Democracy He offers the South a faithful observance of1 the Fugitive Slave Law, with such modifier:- i tions of the lan- as will not oblige citizens I against their will to chase fugitives, nnd as i 1 will protect free men from being carried off, 1 into slavery. He proposes the repeal of all Personal Liberty bills contravening the Con stitution or the laws of Congress. He pro perly isks also to have repealed all Southern police regulations for the imprisonment and selling into slavery Northern seamen of color 1 whose vessels may touch Southern ports.— As it is unscrupulously charged that the 1 I Republicans intend to interfere with Slavery* in the States, he proposes a Constitutional I amendment denying that power to Congress or States, forever. lie proposes after the) admission of Kansas, to pass enabling acts 1 admitting all the residue of the territories in i two States, with whatever Constitution they i may adopt, with provision, if it be constitu-' tional, for future subdivision into more States. He proposes the construction of two great] I Pacific Railroads, one of which shall connect. I the ports around the mouths of the Mis.sis.Mp I pi, for the benefit of the South and the, other to connect the towns on the Mississippi river and on the Lakes with the harbors on the Pacific coast, for the benefit of the Free States and, lastly, he is in favor of calling a Constitutional Convention, one, two or three years hence, when the present eccentric movements of secession and disunion shall have ended, and the public mind calmed down to the reasoning point, to consider and decide whether any, and what, amendments of the organic national law ought to be made. Once iu a century he thinks it may become necessary to revise the National Constitu-' tiou. Now, what more r.wld he have offi-red What other concessions have the Northern people to propose The slave-holders demand that slaves shall be recognized as property by the Const.tution that free Territory shall be converted into slave territory that a slave «Ufii (jyiiillfty^ mmmm code shall be extended ing to dismember sai'd-k"* over thc public main that they shall thc do­ have tho that right to take their slaves with them into tho free States an 1, finally, the African slave trade shall be re-cp-ned, as that legitimately and ine vitably follows thc other concessions. Now, these demands can never he complied with. a^ccpt State*, at*! thc la vSmade Itt p.tr,,Mnec tl.vre- of, are the supreme law of the land, a a- foundation.
