THADDEUS STE VENS for copies of his late speech in Congress, on the California question. He discusses first, the right of Congress to legislate for the Terri. tories, and vindicates it. In this connexion he rune foul of Gen. Cass' doctrine, which "denies to Congress the least power over the Territo ries," and says:— ' , lt is only since our dismemberment of the Mexican Empire, that this ques tion has been opened, and found able and apparently sincere statesmen to deny the power. Those who, half a century hence, shall be led to examine the archives of the nation, will naturally inquire what new light had been shed on this subject— what new event had happened to disturb this well settled opinion. It may possi bly be found, that even in this free and enlightened Republic, men, statesmen and demagogues, were actuated by the same cupidity, lust of power and office, which governed the people of the old and corrupt nations of the world: That an independent nation, without treaty and without warrant in the Constitution, by the mere act of Congress, was corruptly admitted into this confederacy for the avowed purpose of extending the do minion of slavery ; and that California and New Mexico were acquired for the same object. But that it was - found that Congress, unexpectedly to the South, was determined to exclude slavery from them ; and had actually passed a bill through the House of Representatives; and it was lost in the Senate only for want of time. Then southern statesmen discovered that the only chance they had of carryi: g out their original design was to deny the power of Congress to pass such a law. They abandoned the position assumed by themselves, and by the prescription of sixty years, and bold ly assumed this new attitude. ..But to be successful they must bring Northern aid to this new doctrine. - They put in requisition the means which before had always availed them—the political weight of slavery. A Presi dential election was approaching. He, alone, who was willing to receive this new light, and surrender his conscience to its illuminntion; could receive their support. Among the most. prominent of the aspirants to that high office, was a gentleman of distinguished talents, of great scientific and legal attainments, who had reached the mature age of three score years end ten. Hewes par ticularly versed in the Constitution and laws which regulate the Territories.— He had grown up with them. He had filled several offices and among them the highest in territorial Government established by Congress. He acknow ledged the exclusive power of Congress over them, and its power to exclude slavery from them. Ile was prepared to vote for the Wilmot Proviso, and ex pressed great regret that he was depri ved of the opportunity by n debate which was protracted to the end of the session of 1847. There seemed but little' hope that his judgment, thus matured, his opinion formed with care, and consoli dated by the action of a long life, could ever be so changed as to entitle him to Southern support. But miracles have . not ceased in the moral whatever may be the case in the physical world.— Southern alchemy was applied; straight way a shaking was seen among the dry bones, and he stood up regenerated, if. laminated and transformed. The scales fell from his ancient eyes, and he saw bright visions. Ile now denies to Con. gress the least power over the Territo ries! To vindicate, not his consistency, for that is hopeless, but his honesty, he has devoted thirty odd mortal pages of a speech, to show the error indulged in for the last sixty years by Congresses, by Presidents, by Supreme Courts, by Constitutional writers, and by himself. ill shall not attempt to follow his la bored argument, especially as very few of his southern allies now endorse it.— All, however, must feel sincere regret that he changed his opinion under such peculiar circumstances." After arguing this point with a power which can easily be conceived by all who are acquaint ed with the talents of the Speaker, Mr. STE VENS proceeds to consider the power of Congress to prohibit or establish slavery in the Territo ries. Here he in part agrees with, and in part differs from Mr. CLAY, concurring with that distinguished statesman that Congress has the right to prohibit, but denying, in contradiction to him, that it can establish slavery therein:— He then proceeds to consider the Southern doc trine that "Slavery is a blessing." On this point he makes the following references to cer tain members who had assailed him for his as saults upon Slavery in a previous speech:— "When ! ventured some time since to give my opinion freely of the real con dition and evils of slavery, expected to be assailed by the defenders , of that in HUNTINGDON, PA., TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1850. stitution. While that greatest, most honest, and most fearless of modern statesmen, who was stricken down by death in this hall, was almost unaided, defending human rights, and denoun cing the horrors of human slavery, we saw him, from year to year, the object of the bitterest personal abuse in this House, and by the slave press every where. No motives were too foul' to impute to him ; no crimes too atrocious to charge upon him. It was sought to expel him from this body; and it was prevented only by his own gallant de fence. Sir, I trust it will not be suppo sed that I have the vanity to expect to be touched by any of the rays of that glory which will forever surround his name, on account of the calumnies, the insults and the persecutions which he endured in this high and holy cause.— But if I could indulge such hopes, gen tleman from the South, and those who are no gentlemen from the North, are kindly contributing to my ambitious as pirations. My late speech has been deemed of sufficient importance to at tract attention, not to it, but to its auth or. Sir, our acts and our remarks here are legitimate subjects of c3mment and rigid examination ; at.d when any hum ble effort of mine shall receive such no tice in the only tvay which gentlemen will pursue, it will give.ma pleasure to retract what I am convinced is wrong, and calmly to defend the rest, however severe may be the criticism. "1 do not remember one of the numer ous gentlemen who have referred to my remarks, who has attempted to deny one of the facts or refute one of the ar guments; they have noticed them mere ly to vituperate their author. To such remarks there can be no reply by him who is not willing to place himself on a level with blackguards. 1 cannot enter that arena. 1 will leave the filth and the slime of Billingsgate to the fish-wo men, and to their worthy co-adjutors, the gentleman from Virginia, (Mr. Mill. son,) from North Carolina, (Mr. Stan ley,) from Kentucky, (Mr. Stanton,) from Tennessee, (Mr. Williams,) ad all that tribe. With them 1 can have no controversy. When I want to com bat with such opponents and such weap ons, I can find them any day by enter ing the fish market, without defiling this hall. "I beg those respectable fish ladies, however, to understand that I do not in clude my colleague from Bucks County, (Mr. Ross,) among thc4e whom I deem fit to be their associates. I would not so degrade them. "There is in the natural world, a lit tle, spotted, contemptible animal, which is armed by nature with a fwtid, volatile, penetrating virus, which so pollutes whoever attacks it, as to make him of fensive to himself and all around him for a long time. Indeed, he is almost incapable of purification. Nothing, sir, no insult shall provoke me to crush so filthy a beast ! "Mr. Chairman, I crave your pardon for this unprofitable digression. I trust I shall never be betrayed into a similar one, even to brush off these invading vermin." Returning to the consideration of Slavery as n "blessing," Mr. STEVENS inquires why, if that be true, it should be confined exclusively to the African race 7 and in reply to the suggestion that the white is not fitted to enjoy that condi tion like the white man, says :—."Certainly, at first, it will be so. But let not that discourage him. Ile may soon become so." This he fol lows up with the following racy paragraph:— "I will not Ey into a discussion as to the original identity and equality of the human race. lam not learned in those things, nor, unfortunately, in any other. But I appeal to the learned men of this House, the gentleman from Alabama, (Mr. Hilliard,) from 'Massachusetts, (Mr. Mann,) from Vermont, (Mr. Meech am,) to say if the ethnological research es of the pest and present ages—wheth er drawn from the physiology or the philology of tribes and nations of men— do not all corroborate the recorded fact that "He haat made of one blood all na tions. of men ;" and that their present great variety in color, form sa d intel lect, is the effect of climate, habits, food and education. Let not the white man therefore despair on account of the mis fortune of his color. Homer tells us that the moment a man becomes a slave he loses half the man ; and a few short years of apprenticeship will expunge all the rest except the faint glimmerings of an immortal soul. Take your stand, therefore, courageously, in the swamp, spade and mattock in hand, and, uncov ered, half naked, toil beneath the burning sun. Go home to your but at night, and sleep on the bare ground, and go forth in the morning unwashed to your daily labor, and a few short years, or a generation or two at most, will give you a color that will pass muster in the most fastidious and pious slave market in Christendom. Your shape will also gradually conform to your condition.— Your parched and swollen lips will as. sume a chronic and permanent thick ness of the moat approved style, Your feet unconfined by shoes, and accustom ed to a manly soil, will shoot out behind and sideways until they will assume the most delightful symmetry of slavery.— Deprived of all education, cut off from all ambitious aspirations, your mind would soon loose all foolish and per. plextng desires for freedom ; and the 1 whole man would be sunk into a most happy and contented indifference. And all these faculties, features and color would descend to your fortunate poster. ity : for no fact is better established than that the accidental or acquired qualities of body or mind are transmis sible or hereditary. True, ycur de scendants will be black, stupid and ugly. But they would only be so many incon testible proofs of their natural right and fitness for the enjoyment of this state of moral, political and personal happiness. The tone and tenor of the speech is strongly anti-Slavery throughout. The pop-guns of Lo cofo,oism, who glory in the feat of "firing pock et pistols at the rock of Gibraltar," will no doubt discharge themselves in full platoon at its author; but there Is a stern, sturdy, defiant Northern spirit about it which shames their doughfaceism, and has taught the arrogant slave power that there are men who dare to beard it to its face, and who can lash •it with a severer instrument than the overseer's whip. MISCELLANEOUS Murder of Smith O'Brien. The following bold exposure of the cruelties practiced upon Smith O'Brien, and denunCiation of British tyranny, from the Dublin Nation of June Ist, must thrill the heart of every Ameri can, of every lover of liberty and worshipper of heroism. Alas that Ireland can produce only writers and talkers : If there be tenderness in the women, and rage enough in the men, left in Ire land, there is news to-day to flood the land with tears; to fill the air with cur ses. They are killing Smith O'Brien by slow murder, in Maria Island. We have been silent for two weeks, believing that his aristocratic and parliamentary friends would interpose effectually on his behalf, as they promised to do. But they have paltered with his interest, ru ining it with faint, hesitating help, and quenching hope among those who were manlier and more devoted. Meantime a voice of remonstrance is again heard across the ocean, demandingos O'Brien to be murdered 1" Cruelties the most terrible—cruelties which it tnaddens to think of, and shames to mention—are inflicted on this defenceless inan by the executioner of British vengeance. He is caged in the closest solitary confine ment. His food is scanty and loath some. He had no comforts, no atten dance. He never sees the fare, nor hears the voice of a friend. He is deni ed the requisite decency. For months he has not been allowed a change of rai ment, or permitted to change his dress. This will be questioned, disputed, dis belived. No wonder : for it is mon strous and incredible. But we write every syllable of it on the authority of one as incapable of falsehood or exag geration as of murder. It is the literal truth. In solitude, in privation, in filth, lives this Irish gentleman—this noble man—who lost liberty, home, family— all—for Ireland. Nor is this the whole. In the foul den where he is thrust, like a chained reptile, one generous girl, of the age of ten years, daughter of the Gov ernor, sought with the instinctive char ity of her sex, to solace the captive's care and lighten his suffering by kindly offices : and forthwith, on pain of new privation. O'Brien was forbidden ever to speak to her again. He lost this inno cent familiar, whose childish beauty and guilelessness, perhaps, spoke to his fath er's heart of the orphaned darlings who wept for him at home. What -multi tudes have melted into tears over this very incident, in the prison relations of Silvio Pellico ! And here we have it re-inacted in the life of a man from whom no creature ever suffered a wrong.— These atrocities are inflicted by the Governor of Maria Island ; an official, whose brutality has earned for him, in the colony, the title of “The black Ser pent ;" a tyrant, whose name is a terror, and whose presence is despair to the hapless vietitns of his infernal cruelty. In this monster's power—tortured, out raged, maddened—lives your country. man, the son of your kingliest house; 'the generous patriot who fought and fell for you and us all. Is this law 1 is this justice 1 Who is so brutal here as to defend such barbarity 1 What partisan of British rule—what representatives of British authority—dare stand up in these islands and vindicate this dark coward ly, and hellish persecution 1 Does the law of God justify it 1" Does the law of man ordain it 1 Will the people of England sanction it Am/44 Will the people of Ireland endure•it I It is a crime horrible enough to provoke the indignation of humanity. What won der if the burning manhood of Ireland arose in arms against the government that thus sins against justice and our race—that thus murders by slow death a dear brother—the stainless, heroic champion of our liberty. Men of Ireland—and let God and men, and time and eternity, witness the swim nity and truth of our invocation ! whether you be Protestants or Catho lies—whether you are ranged beneath the green flag of our fathers, or under the crimson banner of St. George— whether you desire Irish independence or cherish a union with England, your sacred duty is identical. You must In terfere, and save tins ntan's life: for we tell you, both arc threatened, We say this advisedly. No humane constancy can long withstand the torturing cruel ty O'Brien suffers. No bodily stret.gth can triumph over the privations O'Brien endures. If you will not be accomplices in the murder which is designed—if you would not have O'Brien's blood red in judgment on your souls—we say to you, interfere. Denounce this iniquity. Ter minate this dread agony. Expostulate with this cruel, tnaligant, assassin gov ernment. Save this man from death, or worse than death. These tidings have produced a profound impression in Dub lin. They have excited intense indig nation. A committed is being formed of men of all parties; and, if we have not mistaken Irish hearts there will be a denunciation that shall ring through the land like the judgment peal—s re monstrance which it n ill not be prudent for any government to despise, or 'safe for any government to disobey. We hear, indeed, that the Queen of England, comes to Ireland again this summer—comes for the ovation that monarchs love from petted slaves. But we warn her and her minister's, that 9s surely as she sets her foot on Irish soil, while O'Brien is thus tortured and de ' graded, so surely, wherever she turns, shall it be thundered in her ears, as a melediction—so surely shall his blood be flouted in her face. This promise we will see fulfilled. The Sun's Distance from the Earth. It will be recollected that Congres, at the last session, appropriated a sum of money to send a scientific expedition to the Wrest Coast of South America, for the purpose of making astronomical ob servations to determine, if possible, the sun's distance from the earth with great er accuracy than has heretofore been done. The distance is generuliy believ ed to be about ninety five millions of miles; though some observations have made it not more than ninety millions. A gentleman, in this city who hits discovered a new mode of determining by the laws of motion, the mean distance at which gravita ing bodies shall revolve around each other, has mule the calcu lotion upon his principles, and finds the distance from the centre of the earth to the centre of the sun to be 92,287,598 miles, (ninety-two millions two hundred and eighty-five thousand, five hundred and ninety eight miles.) In this calcu lation which requires but a few min utes labor, he takes the diameter of the earth at the most commonly received measurement, 9212 miles. The gentle man from which we derive the above particulars has examined the calculations alluded to, and discovers no mistake in them. He se, s, "The fact that his (the , inventors) method, which is entirely in dependent of all astronomical observa tions, and calculations, comes to a result which is nearly a medium of the dis tance, heretofore found by observations is in itself almost a demonstration that his principles are correct, and if correct he has certainly made a most wonderful and important discovery. We trust the scientific world will ere ion! , receive more light on the subjeet."—Jr. Y. Com. TAVERN INCIDENT.- , . What are you about you black rascal !

Why Massa if you isn't goin' to git up, I must hab de sheet any how, case dey'r tvaiten for de table clof !" AN OBLIGING JUSTICE.—Many years ago, in Conneticut, a certain Justice wns called to liberate a worthless debtor, by receiving his oath that he was not worth £5. Well, Johnny," said the Justice, as he entered,"can you swear that you are not worth £5, and never will be 1" " Why," answered the other, rather chagirned ut that question. "I can swear that I am not worth that amount at present." " Well, well," returned the Justice, "I can swear to the rest—so step onward Johnny." VOL. XV, NO. 28. The Pipe and the Cigar. The habit of smoking, is, we believe one of the most injurious us it is one of the most seductive in the world. Dr. Ilaycock asserts with truth, that it has the must baneful effects upon the stom ach, the lungs, the heart, the brain, and the nervous system. ahe tobacco con sumed by habitual smokers varies from half an ounce to twelve ounces per week ; the usual quantity from two to thre oun ces. Inveterate cigar smokers will con sume from four to five dozen per week. The first morbid result is, au inflarnma• tory condition of the mucous membrane of the lips and tongue, then the tonsils and pharynx stiller, the tnucous mem brane becoming dry and congested. If the thorax be examined well, it will be found slightly swollen with congestive veins meandering over the surface, and here and there a streak of mucous.— The action of tobacco-smoking on the heart is depressing, and some individu als, who feel it in this organ more than others, complain of an uneasy sensation about the left nipple, a distressed feel ing, not amounting to faintness, but al lied to it. The action of the heart is observed to be feeble and irregular. An uneasy feeling is also experienced in or beneath the pectoral muscles, and often er on the right side than the left. On the brain, the use of tobacco appears to diminish, the rapidity of cerebral action and check the flow of ideas through the mind. It differs from opium and hen bane, and rather e,cites to wakefulness, like green tea, than corn' l o,es to sleep; induces a dreaminess wlAch leaves no impression oa the inemiry, leaving in great susceptibility, indicated by a trem bling of the hands and irritability of temper. Such are the secondary results of smoking. So are.bluckness of teeth and gum-boils. There is also a sallow paleness of the complexion, and irreso lutioness of disposition, a want of life and energy, and in constant smokers, who do not drink, a tendency to pulmo nary phthisic. Dr. Wright of Briming ham, in a communication to the author fully corroborates his opinions; and both agree that smoking produces gas tric disorders, coughs, and inflammatory affect:ons of the larynx and pharynx, diseases of the heart and lowness of the spirits, and in short, is very injurious to the respiratory, alimentary, nervous system. A SHORT ORATION FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY FOR UNPREPARED ORATORS.—A Western orator being 'unexpectedly cal led upon' at a 4th of July dinner, deliv ered himself as follows: Feller citizens—the great bird of American liberty is dewed aloft, and soarin' upon the wings of the wind, is now hoverin' high o're the cloud capped summits of the Rocky Mountains, and when he shall have penetrated the un known regions of unlimited spare; and then shall have duv downward, lit on daddy's wood pile, I.shall be led to ex claim, in the grand, the terrific, the sub lime language of Paul, the apostle, in his celebrated epistle to the Aboriginees little pig, or die!' tri=-A schoolmaster in a country town, as we-learn by an old paper, having by his exertions in the school room, made himself rather thirsty, opened his desk to refresh himself with an apple, which he had, not long before, deposited there. To his disappointment it wasgone. Con jecturing that his wife had purloined it, he instantly despatched to her the fol lowing: 7 , Your mother Eve an apple stole, But ate It not alone; She gave a part to that dear rout Of whom she was the bone. I'd have my Eve at least as kind; I therefore beg, dear Madam, You will another apple find, And send it to your Adam. How GLUTTONS ARE MADE.—"An ex cessive and diseased appetite is com monly created in earhest childhood, which is never bully conquered. Does its healthy instincts revolt against ban dages ut hich are stifling out its life, or an atmosphere which, through stagna tion stud exhausting respiration has be come noxious and insupportable, it cries are hushed with needless food. " * • The sad result too comet• nly is that the child arrives at the knowledge of good and evil—if it be so fortunate or unfor tunate as to survive the severe probation of infancy at all—completely depraved in all its instincts—a ready mady sen sualist—n miniature glutton."—Greeley. DIDN'T WANT TO tio.--A Jerseyman was very sick and was not expected to recover. His friends got uround his bed, and one of them says— John, do you feel willing to die 1" "John "made an effort" to give his views, on the subject, and answered Aral-. his feeble voice-- "I—think—l'd rather stay—w,;lere I'm—better nerinninted."
