Expulsion of Senator Bright Thn *atc acuon of the United State* f ctiftte. in the etpfibino of Senator Bright, will be bard;y regarded iu these times as an extraordinary incident. Bui it is 11 ujthelcrs, a little ei‘r*uruioary. it i< tree, the Sruate of the United States ia invested by law ttiih (he power to deride ail question* tecring upon the i jf membrr'-hip, hut, it U likewise true, that the framora of tlad law never contemplated it* perversion to eiieh ma lign and unciv ilifid usee They never inenit.d the! it should hr* used as an instrument of Inrul npfwesruin. nor did they contemplate its adaptation to pur po*-* purely sectional ot political In ra.l and hippo r dayT. It r flpplicatiot was not imfr*quntly in vogue, but. we remembe*. even-handed justice. u t [M)diical affinity, was then the stan dard by which its construction was guid ed. Wo w*U remember the day, when whig voted for democrat and democrat fnr wrhiig in instance* iu which this law was cvnkftd; nor could the press or the mas**, ot evm the fear of political peo*riplion. drive members of the old American Senate from the course of rec lirudc or the path of honor. Now, let us take a glance at the case of Mr. Bright and examine the causes atcigr.od for lam expuhton. It is charg ed. that, about the first of March last, he gave a Mr. T. B. Lincoln—a loyal cit- we presume, from the name—a Utter of introduction to Jefferson lavis. in this Utter, a new and approved pat tern **f fir- arm w.i rtv.uuincndud. ami Mr Lincoln alluded to as its inventor Now, it may be #.aid that trouble* were brewing at that time, and. that it was unpatriotic m Bright to write such a letter i bu\ when wc remember that the letter bore dale anterior to the outbreak of the Southern “rebellion,” how can it bo regarded as a treasonable paper V Wherein, tleo, ha# Mr. Bright tinned and upon what ground ha* hu been pro scribed as a traitor ? But he ho* done more--even worse than this -say the ad vocate* for his expulsion. By his own k-dfOvctiou* he is a traitor at heart, for he admits that he voted hr John ('. Breckinridge 1 This may bo very good logic, but, if so. wo ask, upon what ground do the supporter* of Mr. Well hull owl Bell became ft “rebel/' whilst Breckinridge was still true, and was hounding on the Tcnnsssraus to the work of resistance, whilst Breckinridge was still laboring in the cause of recon struction Why, then, seek the degra dation of Mr. Bright, and honor am? applaud Mr. Garret Baris ? Bat, w forget, the one Ka* fully apo.-'tatixcd to tyranny and oppression, whilst the orb er, pcahap*. alili entertains some *Ugb >*!>er*uun tor (ho Constitution and the pas*. Indeed, it to as. a coalition la* been formed, from which, under the com pact, th- democracy‘-Mr. Andy Johnson scepted—ban been excluded. And, thin coalition, it further seems, ha* woikcd much good both to, It* members and ibe Government. It has gone further in the good work of subjugation than oven McClellan and his Marshals.

I The general principle is now strongly urgeu that the American war has been tf long duration without practical results, and that the mean** of warfare adopted, such as the stone blockade, for example, are contiary to the moral sense of the great powers of the world. The urgency of the Abolitionists to declare the freedom "of; the slaves and thus create the horrors ofi servile insurrections, is now regarded by their old allies, the English, as an evi dence of the tendency of Americans to! barbarism, and is used as an argument, to | Induce national interference in oar affairs { Wo cannot but feel tb melancholy fact j that America is rugurded in Europe as a I weakened power, with whom ii is pass! blc lo dcal os with riu inferior.
