meats of the Government, and upon every
eitizen of the United States.
Congress, however, must, from necessi
ty, first act upon the subject, by proscri
bing the proceedings necessary to aseer
tain that the person is a fugitive, and the
means to bo need for his restoration to the
elaimant. This was done by an sot passed
during the first term of President Wash
ington, which was amended by that enact
ad by the last Congress, and it now re
mains for the Executive and Judicial De
partments to take care that these laws be
faithfully executed. This injunction of the
Constitution is as peremptory and as bind-
ing as any other; it stands exactly on the
foundation as that clause which provides
for the return of fugitives from justice, or
that which declares that no bill of attain-I
der or ex post facto law shall 'be passed,
or that which provides for an e.tuality of
taxation, according to the census, or the
elausa declaring that all duties shall be
uniform throughout the United States, or;
the important provision that the trial of
all crimes shall be by jury. These sever
al articles and clauses of the Constitution,
all resting on the same authority, must
stand or fall together. Some objections
have been urged against the details of the
act for the return of fugitives from labor;
but it is worthy of re.nark that th e main
opposition is ai.ned against the Constitu
tion itself, and proceeds from persons and
classes of persons, many of whom declare
their wish to see that Constitution over-
turned. They avow their hostility to any
law which give full and practical ef-
feet to this requit;ment of the Constitution.
Fortunately, the number of these persons
is comparatively small, and is believed to
be daily diminishing, but the issue which
they present is one which involves the su
premacy and oven the existence of the
- Cases have heretofore arisen in which I
individuals have denied the binding author- '
ity of acts of Congress, and even States
have proposed to nullify such acts, upon
the ground that the Constitution was the
supreme law of the land, and that those
acts of Congress were repugnant to that
instrument; but nullidcation is now aimed,
not so much against particular laws as be
ing inconsistent with the Constitution, as
against the Constitution itself; and it is
not to be disguised that a spirit exists and
has been actively at work to rend asunder
this Union, which is our cherished inheri
tance from our revolutionary fathers.
In my last annual message I stated that
I considered the series of measures, which
had beau adopted at the previous session,'
in reference to the agitaion growing out
of the the Territorial and slavery ques-I

and substance of the dangerous and ex

for no human legislation can be erfect.—

Doings in Congress.
Congress assembled on Monday the first
of the present month and the House of
Representatives organized by the election
of Lynn Boyd, (Dent.) of Kentucky as
Speaker and John W. Forney, Dditor of
the Pennsylvanian, as Clerk. The various ,
Standing Committees have not yet been ap
pointed, which is likely to be a difficult
task, as there appears to be discordant ele
ments in the Locofoco party. The Whigs
of the House met in Caucus, before the
organization and passed a resolu
tion in favor of adherence to the Compro
base measures and against further agita
tion of the slavery question, while a simi
lar resolution was defeated in the Looofe
co caucus. The Locefocos are courting
the abolitionists and have got the princi
pal part of them, and are regulating their
course in such way as to conciliate both
the Free Sellers and the Ultra slavery
men, for a harmonious run in the next
residential election. It is niece than
probable that the Union will be saved as
long as the government has anything to
steal, which is a most powerful bond of
union. The Texas, Arkansas, California
and other distant members of Congress
will stick to it, as long as they can plun
der the Treasury of three or four thousand
dollars a year in the shape of constructive
Mileage. There has been no business done
in the House of a public nature.
The Senate has been doing more than
the House. Tutee contests the seat of
Mallory from Florida, which is a novelty
in the Senate. Several members have What We Thmt .

Arrival of liossuth—llis Splendid
Kossuth arrired at New York on Friday
morning last, in the Limbolt, and on Sat
urdy was welcomed into the city of New
York by the most magnificent display of
pageantry and enthusiasm that has boon
witnessed there, since the memorable visit
of La Fayette. The Hungarian and Amer
ican flags were flapping from every window
and house-top —arches and festoons and
all manner of gorgeous decorations were
thrown across the streets through which
he was to pass—ladies waved their
snowy handkerchiefs and scattered their
laughing blushes—gentlemen swung their
hats and yelled like Stentors—bands play
ed, drums beat and cannon thundered—the
military were out in all their glory and
with all their gewgaws and baubles—ora
tory and rhetoric wore pruned for intel
lectual boquets to be thrown on the ima
gination and heart of the illustrious visitor
—poetry pavilioned the scene with the
splendors of her seventh heaven—and two
hundred thousand people marched with
him in procession through the streets.
Our readers will naturally ask for the
cause of all this enthusiastic idolatry.—
Austria attempted to absorb the former
independent Kingdom of Hungary and
govern it by Austrian law, as a province
of the empire. Hungary resisted the de
struction of her nationality and raised en
army to maintain it as an independent
Kingdom, to be governed by the old laws
and usages of the monarchy.
Kossuth was appointed governor of Hun
gary for he purposes of the revolution,
several battles were successfully fought.
Finally Georgey the commander of the ar
my, turned traitor and surrendered to
Austria and the struggle was over. Kos
' suth and Lis companions fled and threw
themselves on the generosity of the Turks,
who kept them in custody for about • two
years and refused to deliver them up to ilte .
Emperoi of Austria who thirsted for their
blood. Ile is now here by the aid, in part,
and request of, the American government.
He started out, with tne intention of pre
serving a monarchy, and from his recent
speeches, he is likely to end in a republi
can. Ilis triumphant return from exile,
not to his own country but to this, has im
pelled the European republicans to him as
the most intfluential embodiment of their
principles Whatever respect shall be
paid to him here, will be in consequence of
our sympathy with thos3 principles.
