Citizens of Washington Territory ! Are you prepared to submit without protest to that indignity, which, while you willingly contribute your taxes, though denied a vote in Congress, even takes away from you the privilege of con trolling your elective franchise ! It -member that the acts organizing our Territory, and inviting its settlement years ago, conferred the express right to delinc the qualification* of electors, and opened the public lands to i -inlr settlement. After fourteen years acceptance of these fundamental laws, without o'Tc: on our part, Congress litis dcj• riv<• <1 lis of those privileges. Without our consent and against our will, it lias forced upon us negro suffrage and has opened the door for all races and col ors to vote in our Territory, ami settle in our midst. Those who favor repeal of sticli op pressive Congressional Legislation, come fur ward now, and let your voice be heard in earn est protest against such interference in our affairs. I}. S.

Such a sentence could only bo pen ll '.'(l liv one accustomed to [ijiy m-'tv attention to leading-strings than to itllv thins; else. It is the old •• O • l'adieal digmit, under which fools set themselves upas (lie interpreters of Providence, and endeavor to make the :;-rc;it and wise look as little as them .'elves. When those lladieals who favor an Amendment to the Constitution f>j Cmu/rcxs, for the pur pose »if depriving the Executive De partment of a portion of its powers and giving it to the legislative, are told that it is contrary to the teach ings of the Fathers, tliov <;eiieni!lv i- » » o %/ reply that the Fathers were either knaves or fools, just as they claim that all who now tjucstion their or thodoxy are foots and traitors. We might show, if it were of any use, thut (ieorgij Washington thought that the habits of thinking, in a free - country, should inspire caution in those intrusted with its administra- ■ lion, t\> confine themselves with- ] in their respective constitutional, spheres, avoiding, in the exercises of the powers <>t one department, to en- j crouch upon another. The spirit of encroachment, tends to consolidate the power of all the departments in ; one. and thus to create, whatever the form of(jovernment,a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of pow er, and pronencss to abuse it which predominates in the human heart, is sullicient to satisfy us of the truth of tins position. The necessity of re ciprocal checks in the exercise of po litical power, by dividing and dis tributing it into different deposito ries, and cot s itnting each the guar dian of the public weal, against in vasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments, ancient and modern; some of them in our own country, and under our own eyes. To preserve them must ho as neces sary as to institute them. If. in the opinion of the people, the distribu tion or modification of the constitu tional power lie, in any particular, wrong, lot it be corrected by an amendment in tli<> way which the coiitd trillion designate*.

Tl.i-re she is ; behold lior,and judge I">r yourselves There is her history; the world knows it hy heart. The genius of American freedom, which was roeked in the old cradle of liberty, whose youth was nurtured and sus tained by the sturdy patriots of the Revolution, still lives in the strength of its manhood, and full of its orig inal, in this the oity of its birth. i have been to hear the big organ, one of the institutions of the city, the largest organ on the continent, and I believe, aa large as any in the world. To say that I was charmed and delighted wo ihl be too feeble a mode of expression. 1 was iilled full of music, and came away from the performance with the same sen- siltiou of satisfaction that one expe riences after it grand banquet of all tin: rare an*l costly viands. The full power of the organ was not as I expected, a stunning sound, like tiie noise of a score of steam-whistles, accompanied by heavy thunder, but was a volume of melody strand ar.d overpowering. What falls of Niagara are in sublimity com pared ♦villi other waterfalls, so is the grand organ ol Uoston as compared with all other organs on the continent. N. I'. Willis, the poet, is dead, lie died at Idlewihl, his residence on the Hudson, and his remains were conveyed to Uoston, his native place, and were buried nt Mount Auburn, after very impressive sitid solemn emu services in the King's Chapel, corner of School and Tremont streets. His death occurred on the 20th inst., from paralysis, and the funeral took place on the 24th.

Whether tlic end is a ripe's end, or the end of a vial of medicine, or of a bottle ofCape Mad eira.—wliether it i-; the end ot one of President I' ivis'.; messages or of Mr. Secretary Mctuinger's reports, we have inrver been told. Hitter enough has h«-en a good deal of Southern ex perience, but none of our wayward sisters ever told us what they meant bv a " last ditch" or a " bitter end." The truth is, that they borrowed the phrase,—as the did most other 111i11ii" =, —from New England, and. as O in ino-i cases, did not know what to do with it when thev had it. A CI oiieester fisherman would teil the editi r of the London Times, that a ship's cable has always two end*. The end which is attached to the an chor suffers more or less in use, —is gradually rotted and worn perhaps. I>lll the other end, which is secured within the vessel, remains*].- sound as when it was made, —and in the nau tical phrase of two hundred years :it least, has been known as the " Let- ft')' cud." "When, in a gale, a vis>el has paid out ail her cult lit. her cable has isin out to "the better end." Then comes the tug, of course, mid then it is decided, whether tin storm will be too TII nel» tor the cable, or the cable too mui'li f>r the s o.'iu. The is |Toperly used therefore to designate a crisis, «»r i!ie .inoniei t of an extremity. Tin 4> extremity" of the cable in fact, is its "better end." As long ago as Uohiuson Crusoe's first voyage, when that, terrible storm stuck them in Yarmouth Roads, lie says, "wo rode with two anchors ahead, and the cables veered out to the better end." Hence a phrase, which is nearly without meaning, which has crept even into the pulpit, which talks in extremity, the '•Ac/fcreud." Pretty good for the " respcetahlo daily," as that journal is termed. liostoniaus are awakening up to the importance of having aline of steamships ivith Kurope.
