Tlic Senate to-day again "l Mf Denton's resolution tu appropriate thu sur plus revenue for purposes, of national de fence. Mr Buchanan concluded his pro tected remarks in favor of this resolution. He made one admis.-ion which may he con sidered of importance, lie said. that then; was every prospect that through the ac cepted meditation of the liritish govern ment, our difficulties with France would be amicably adjusted. IIo still urged the pro pticly of adopting measures of defence, and nf repairing and extending the fortification of the country. Mr Crittenden of Kentucky obtained the floor next to Mr Finchanan, and spoke for nearly two hours without notes to a crow iled and delighted audience. As this was the debut oi Mr Crittenden in thy Senate, much curiosity was ma.nfestrd to willies how he would acquit, himself, am! whether lie would come up to the high estimation which Mr Clay I as nii.veraiMy o.vr -"'-d oMus abilities.

As n speaker he unites the grace vivacity of Pres'on with much of the energy and .nlutitu iif Webster. His manner is rather courteous and tincere than vehement and ctnrtllmr. His nrrMiinents were enlivened with ninnv thshes of genuine wit, which encaged I bo attention and secured the good will of his audience.

Ill the Senate Mr Man-nun, ofN. Carolina, made on eloquent and able speech iu oppoMlmr to lieiuon's resolution for the disposal of the surplus revenue, in ii)i u '""n, was had upon a quetiuu ol relerence. A bill from th Seiviif nbrulgiug or regulating the tenure of certinn officers under govern ment came befure the House, and it was moved to rcler it to the committee on the Judiciary, where it might be conveniently Btiflcd without any questions being asked. Another motion to refer it to a select com mittee occasioned considerable debate, in nfra Itell. Sulliorlalid. Thomas. .i nt.,'1,.,, n,L- nnrt. Mr l'llllllps ol UIIU l llllli' i , Massachusetts made u spirited extcmpora neons speech in favor of the reference to a select committee. The day's sesnuii was occupied with this discussion. All fears of war with Franco appear to be dispelled by the acceptance ol the proffer of mediation from England. It is Bupprising to witness the revulsion of feel ing upon this subject. A week unco, and tho war-whoop was sounding loudly throughout tho administration wig warm. "Nov are our browB twined with victorious wreaths," Gentlemen who prated vehe mently of national honor and "all thai tori of ih'mg," have become wonderfully pacific and gentle.

Mr Calhoun presented a voluminous re port from Ihe Select Committee, appoint, ed to consider that part of the President's message in relation to the prevention of the circulation of ncendiaiv pamphlet sin re lation to slavery, by mail. &c. The report iu substance, slates thai the Committee, alter cnncuring with the President in his sentiments of regret at the efforts which have been mad-' by the laualies. in dissem inating their poisonous tracts, have come to the conclusion, that Centres cannot adopt ihe im a-ures recommended by him. I hev lake a comparative view ot the pnw ers resumed in the Alien and Sedition laws of 1 799 considering them to be identical Iv Ihe same and to be an interference with the rights of the several Stales' The Pre ident s rrcomtncndatmn in substance was to prevent the circulation in the southern Siates, through mails, nl incendiary publi rations intended lo instignto the slave to insurrection," The committee are ofopm inn that if they admit Ihe right lo prevent il would admit the nghi lo circulate and hence lollows ihe nihiu. inn of the right of Coii'r'cs lo abolish slavery, or interfere in Ihe internal condition of t lie slaves, a mat ter which cxclu-ivcly belongs to the States them-olves. Alter an nrj-utnentativc train of reasoning,! hey recommended to Congress in-tead of Ihe measure recommended by the President, a lull prohibiting Deputy Post masters knniungly lo receive and pul into mail any pamphlet newspaper, handbill or other paper, printed or written, or pictorial representation touching t he suliiect ol slave ry, nddressci! lo any person or po-t office, where bv the Lvs i,t the Slate, e. lie ir circulation is prnlnbiicu.

The bill was read, and ordered toascenni readniL'. On motion of Mr. 'aiiL'um, 5000 extra copies of Iho report and bill were or dered lo be printed. After which, Mr Davis said, ho de-ired In stale lhat he did not uss.-eut to all the view-in Ihe repo'l hut he did no! consider I he matter of siilli cieul importance to tender it necessary lor him to give his views mi it. i hero appear od to have been a difference of opinion on ihe par! o. ihe Committee, a majority ot wh.iin, however, had agreed lo various ir&riions of the report, and to the hill. Air .Maii'Mim made some Uriel reman; on Mr llenlon's resolution, nnd was fol lowed bv Mr Clayton, of Delaware. II differed from many ol Ins friends, advoca tin" the necessity of nulling the country in a slate of defence, with or without reference to th ) iilTair with I'rance. He considered ihe latter in a critical condition, beca ise Franco persisted in demanding Mich an i apology or such an explanation as was in limateil, they all knew the President nev er would assent to it; nnd although ho himself was not, now, nor would be, n par tisan of his, he was bound in his conscience lo say ho i vcr would consent that he should apologize or explain to any foreign power for any thing contained in his mcs sage lo Congress. The Constitution made it obligatory to t,cnd communications ol ihem, and 'although there were topics iu lho mes-acr'! which ho eeuld not approve. yet il was his right nevertheless to speak irnnkly, and be he friend or foe, he would ever s.laud by him in mainiaiuaiice ot that right against nny Ijreign power the princi pie, that they had a right to call for exam mations, was to surrender the independence of the govorment. Just ns well, he urged, might the French government claim the right to demand an explanation ef his or nnv other Senator's sentiments m Congress, as of tho President's. Even if tho result of tho mediation, which they hear of. was i t.,11 ilm Prpsn ent he should inalie tin. apology, who supposed he would nuke it r,,r them, or any power on carih? He contended that thu three million amend ment was unconstitutional, nnd ho asked Mr liuchannn, whether ho would consider an amendment grnnting ten times that, in tcrm, viz- "for the civil, military and naval service" constitutional.' Mr Iiiiclianan, however, blinked ibis question, not deem ing it necesarv to go beyond the present case. Mr Clayton went on to remark on tho hue and cry raised against Mr Web ster, for having said, because he believed llmt the amendment was unconstitutional.

IIo has thus taught us that while every natural object seemed dead, the principle of vcctnblo life was still unceasingly oper ating and preparing silently this earthly resurrection and that in his wise govern- there exists no evil.

Tho vcar of nature is an emblem nl the year of ihe soul, and while we see the wisdom of tho present evil to the plants and trees of the earth, shall we not also behove in the wisdom of afflictions to the soul? While the natural objects of sense aro annually dying, a man still lives and sees the beginning, life and end of miriads of the inanimate creature of God Let then, tho storms of Winter blow, and the ice mantle still cover tho earth; they are the signs ofthc same Father who beautifies the Spring and the Summer, "and crowns the year with hie goodness." They arc to us as evidences nf that kind hand which makes the "momentous evil productive of final good," and teaches to look througti Nature to its God. The natural winter is but typical of the moral winter, and ainnl tho weaknesses of age assures us that n pring shall visit the grave and every man nrio to be judged decor ding to tho deeds ilotio in the body, wheth er they be good or whether they be evil.
