STAGY. i THE CITY 0FJT1IE DEMONS. In days of yore, thero lived in the flour ishing city of Cairo, a Hebrew rabbi, by name .Tochonun, who was the most learned of his nation. Ilis lame went over the 11 ist : rind the nuisl distant people sent their young men to inibibo wisilom Irom Ins hps. was deeply skilled in the traditions of the lliers ; lind his wold on a disputed point s decisive. Hu was pious, just, tamper-1 , mid strict; but he had one vicu-u love gold hud seized upon hi heart, nncl hu lathers was ati of ci opened not Ins baud to the poor, let lie was wealthy above most, his wisdom being to him a source of riches. The Hebrews of (ho city were grieved at this blemish on the wisest of their people; but, though the cldeis of the tribes continued to leverence him for his fame, the women and children of Cairo called him by no other name than that of Uubbi Juchonan the miser. None Unew so well as ho the ceiemonies necessary for initiation into the religion of Moses; and, consequently, the exorcise of those solemn offices was to him another source of gain. One day, lis ho walked in the fields about Cairo, conversing with a youth on the inter pretation of the law, it so liapp"hod that the n nee I hi death smote tlu voting man sudden- i ly, and he fell dead before the feet of the rabbi, even while be was yet speaking. When the rabbi found that the youth was dead, ho tent his garments and glorified the Lord. Dot his heart was touched, and the thoughts of death troubled him in tho visions of the night. He felt uneasy when lie io llected on his hardness to the poor; and. he said, " IJIeised be the name of the Lord ! The fits' good thins that I am nsked to do, in that holy name I will peifomi." lint be sighed, for he fe.ued that some one might ask of him a portion of his gold. Whilu yet lie thought upon those things, there came a loud cry at his gale. 'Awake, thou sleeper!' said tho voice, ' awake ! A child is in clanger of death, and the mother hath sent me for thee, and then niayest do thine office.1 ' The night is ! irk and gloomy,' said the rabbi, coming to his casement, 1 and mine ago is gi eat. in C.i ii o V Are Iheio not 3 ounger than 1 1 Tor thee only, Ilihbi Joelioiian, whom soiiie call wise, but whom others call IJabhi Jochon in the miser, was I sent. Hole is gold,' slid he, taking out a puise of sequins. ' I want not thy labor for nothing. 1 nd'piio thee to come, in the name of thu living Cod.' So the rabbi thought upon the vow he had just made, and be groaned in spirit, for the purse seemed heavy. 'As then Inst adjured me by lint name, I go with ihi'o,' said he to the in in : ' hut 1 bone the distance is not far. Put up tbv gold.' ' The place is at hand,' said the stranger, who was a gallant youth, in magnificent at tire. 1 I'e speedy, for time presses.' Jochon in aiose, dressed himself, and ac companied the stranger, after having Gain fully locked up all the doors of his house, anil deposited bis kovs in a secret place at which the stranger smiled. 1 I never remember,' still the rabbi, 1 so dark a night. I'e thou to me us a guide, for I can haidly see the way.' ' I know it well,' replied the stranger ilh a sigh: 1 it is a way much frequented mid travelled honily by many. Lean upon mine arm, and fear not.' They journeyed on ; and, though the darkeoss was great, yet tho rabbi could see, when it occasionally brightened, he was in a pi ice strange to him, ' I thought,' said he, 1 I knew all the country for leagues about Cairo ; jet I know not where I am. I hope, young man, said he to his companion, ' that thou bast not missed thu wav.' And bis heart misgave him. fear not, returned tho stranger; ' your journey is even now dune.' And, and ns he spoke, the feel of the labbi slipped from under him, and he inlleil down a gieal height. When ho recovered, be found that Ins companion had fallen also, and stooil by his side. 'Nay, young man,' said the i alibi, if thus thou spoitest with tho grey baiisof age, thy days are numbered. Wo unto him who" insults thu hoary head !' Tho slianger made an oxcuse, and they journeyed on some little further in silence. Tho darkness grow less ; and the astonished rabbi, lifting up his eyes, found that they hud come to the gates of a city w hich ho had never before seen. Yet ho knew all the cities of the land of Ivgypt, and ho had walk ed but half an hour fiom his dwelling in Cairo. So he knew not what to think, but followed tho man with trembling. They soon entered tho gates of the city, which was lighted u, lls ifiheio was a festi val ill every bouse. The streets were full of levellers, and nothing but a sound nfjov could bo hoard, Hut when Juchonan looked upon their faces, they were the faces of men pained within ; and ho saw, by tho maiks they bore, that they wcro M.izikin, H. vvas le.r.iied ,n i.s soni ; and, uy the light ol of lllB co51i sll0m) ; 0 t ot ol.-l "lit . as if the torches, ho looked a so upon tho face" oH ,lnv Wero tho fanciful work of Host.

The rabbi feared excessively ; al-1 0Ver tho brim. most to fainting; hut ho thought it better to! 'Thou hast dono men sorvicablo act, liosilont; and sadly ho followed his guide, 1 rnbbi,' said tlio demon : 'take of (huso what who brought him to a splendid house, in lliu ihou pleascst ; nyo, wmo it tho whole.' most magnificent quarter of tho city. I I cannot, my lord,' said Jorlionan. 'I ' Enter here,' said tho demon to Jocho- vvas abjured by thee to coino hither in the nan, ' for this house is mine. Tho lady and nanio of Cod ; and in that name I canio, tho child aro in tho upper chamber.' And, not for feo or reward.' accordingly, the sorrowful rabbi ascended ' Follow mo,' said tho princo of tlio Mazi- 1110 stairs to linil them. Tho lulv, whoso dazzling beauty was shrouded by melancholy beyond hope, lay in tied : tho rbild, in rich raiment, slumbered on tho lap of iho nurso by her side. 1 uavo Drought in thee, light of my oyes I' l lio treasures ol tlio Kings ol tho earth would said the (lemon, " Ilubocca, bolovnd of my not purchaso one of tho four-nnd twenty ves soul!

I shall ft iitcli n in all things nticessary ; for ho is in haslo depart,' He smiled bitterly as he said these words, looked at the labbi, and left the loom, fol lowed by the nurse. When Jocbonan and tho lady wero alone, she turned in tho bed tnwnrds him, and said : 1 Unhaiinv nun tint thou art I knowesl i thou where ihou hast been brought?' ' I do,' said he, with a heavv groan; ' 1 ' Know III it 1 am in the city oi the .m.izimii, Know then, luitlier,' said sue, aim mi I'lt Called (mm her eyes, bii-litar til. l.'"i""l,-' know then, blither, Hint r "u ''.'ought here unless he hi. fineJ boforo lliu L.or.1.

' The rabbi dashed Ilis tin ban on the ground and (eating bis hail, exclaimed, "Wo is me I Who art thou, woman, that spenhest to mo thus V 1 1 am a Hebrew woman," said she, 'the daughter of a dorior of the laws, in the city of Magdad ; and being brought hither, it mat ters not how, 1 am mariied to a pi hire among thu Muzikin, even him who waSsenl for thee.

And ho laughed aloud. So ihe poor rabbi was taken into a cham ber, looking into a beautiful garden, where bo passed the remainder of the night and ibe day, weeping, and praying lo ihe Lord, that he would lb-liver him from the city of the demons. Hot when the twelfth hour rime, . and the sun was set, tho prince of the Mazi- Mn came again itiiio nun, and sai.l ' L it now, I pray thee, for the day of thy vow is past." And be set meal before him. ' Pardon again thy servant, inv lord,' said Jocbonan, 'in this ibing. 1 have another vow lor this day also. I pr.'i this day also.

So ihe rabbi sat another day in his cham ber by the garden, weeping and praying. Ami when tin- sun had gone behind the lull tho prince of the Muzikin again stuod before linn, and said ' Lit now, for limn must be an hungered. It was a sore vow of thine.' And ho offer ed him daintier meats. And Jochonan felt a strong desiro to eal ; but ho prayed inwardly to tho Lord, and tliu temptation passed, and he answered ' Lxciiso thy servant yet a third time, my lord, I oat not. 1 have leneweil my vow.' 'lioitso thou," said tho other: 'arise, and follow me.' Tho demon took a torch in his hand, and led tho rabbi through winding passages of his palace, to iho door of a lolly chamber, which lie opened with a key that he. took from a niche iu thu wall. On entering the room Jochonan saw that it was of solid silver floor, ceiling, walls, even to the threshold and tho door-posts. And tho curious carved roof and borders 1 Km ; and Jocbonan did so, into an inner ' chamber. It was of gold, as tho other was of silver.

Thu room was lighted bv a carbuncle, which, from the end of the hall, poured its ever-living light, bright er than thu lays of noontide, but cooler than the gentle i.idiiince of the dewy moon. This was a sore ti ial on the labbi; but lie was strengthened liom above, and ho refus ed again. 1 Thou knowest me, then, I perreive, O Jocbonan, son of Hen-David,' said the princi f m JI.cJi,;,) I am a demur . u bo would , t ,,,,, , l1.,ll,,(.lio.

' Close thine eyes,' said the demon. He did so, and, in tho space of a moment, heard the voice ot the pi men of the .Mezikin ordei- itig him to open them again.

Gentlemen, it is one of Hie peculiar circum stances which seems to alleml oar political in stitutions,, though the country may lie pro, porous iu all its relation;, we aio yet called upon, from day to d.iy, to enter into eonleMs, ar guments and (Inquisition?, as though neither urosporily, nor lensDn, hi'l touted any thing. Cuiiiineico and ngriciiltuie, and the mechanic arts, are now tluuiihuig, two of them iu an es. pecial degree. And Hie agriculture of the North, anil the plint.itiou interest ot the youth, though perhaps not in so bright and palmy a stale as they might be, are yet in a highly io speclahle condition. And vet, at this vorv tune, ll0n "ur I'-J'crity as a nation tar tran-cenil, the prosperity of any other nation to which we cm lie compared, we are threatened with a change, a total change in till the policy which baa contributed to produce suclp4sp.inty. (Cheering.) Fellow citizens, it is proposed l'n-t to change our territory; to extend its limits by the annexation of a Inreign ciMint.-y. Second lo change our constitution ; lo en graft, upon that instrument what I had'abno.-t ij thought the repudiated doctrine of state inter- ler-'iice. Third to change the whole policy of ptotcc- tiou to domestic industry. Up m tho-n p mips I desire to express inv p i . t. .it .i . r' -.i:, .mo i mi.ui un so in veiv lew words, ,0,r t() ilu uiid-rslocd tint 1 sneak with no relereoce lo latitude or longitude, wilA no Idi ot' either norileyin men nor southern men though with entire r-spect lo both but as be longing to the whole country, on questions, which, as I conceive, affect the whole country. And, lbs', as to the enlargement of our terri tory by tlie annexation n Texas. Tor whose i-i-tuieat is it ! On what ground ought ilmt to be cliectod ! My opposition to thai nieas'iiro is i-either temporary in its nature nor character. It would be the same if .Mexico were agreed to l the annexation, as ills now it would be the simo weio I exas toenst us nothing, as though il cost us much. It is loiinded, principally, on the sentiment which lias been illustrated and enlarged upo-, here, to-duv. The gieal, funda mental, eveil.istmg objection lo the annexation of Tex is, is that it is a scheme for the exten sion of the slavery of the African race. I sub. nut to geiitli-i ion from the south here present, ami I see in my, w bother any sensible, judicious and wise men there, Ins wih"d, or now w ishes, for the agnation and ih-cii. .am o tins question, at tho same time that I subnet to the people ol the north, as lovers of hurrly evoivv.hore, whether they desiio or approve of it. Aiine,aliori brings witii it the creation of states w ith a slave population. Disguise it as you may, thcobjivl, the motive of its advocatess i hi'a been, and is, the extension of the slave in. IcrcM, the slave market, and shoe control. We m iv ju-t its well come to the truth at once. The public, documents before the people, garbled as they havo been, show this fact that Ihe annex, ation of Texas is sought lor, fiom fear that, ll it be not annexed, it will bet 11: a free tcnitory. This is expressly avowed by the .Secretary of State (Mr. Calhoun) who" urges annex-a'tioii from tins very fear, tint otherwise Texas might boa free country. And, gentlemen, this fear is not al'ogether unfounded. It is within my knowledge that representations have been made th the government of Texas btalin-i- that bir-'e ' emigration to tint country was nine Ii thought of among the people of the north of (le; erut inv : tint tbe.-o emigrant Cierinaus would brui" in white labor, white principles, white vote.t, and would finally acipiue power enough to prevail over the adverse principle and interest; and thus wlio can bear to think of it ! thus Texas would become a free counliy. Tins, I know, has been represented to the Texan government. And it is to sociire.tlii) institution of slavery agiinst that result in Texts tint wo are called upon to annex that country to o ir own. (Applause.) Hut, fellow citizens, I do not believe that the intelligent mind of the South wishes for any such thing. (Cheers). ibu unihiiiking portion of the people there should anticipate gieat advantages from the ac qiiisitiou of so large a tern'ory, adapted to their own prodiiclnis, with a fresh'aud unexhausted soil, t is very natural 1h.1t those who do not deeply reil-'ct upon consequences-, who do not regnd matters in their political baring, should 11 01. e iy 10 g.'i 110 an enthusiasm among I'leni-elves on Ibis siihi"cl of annexation. Hut I it is my firm bol.of lb it the mind, the thought of tho South does not wish it. If I thought it wero not so, 1 should bo vorv sorry. Gentlemen, so far as regards slavery in this counliy, I agreo entirely w ith wh it has- already been said lo you, and with the motto on one rif your banners, to which allusion I ins been made. 1 6iy 10 slavery, under the constitution, llius far, and 110 farther." Tlio constitution, at tho time of its adoption, found each state with the power 01 regulating its institutions, 111 this respect, for itself; and tho constitution so loft the matter. L.ich Statu could contiuiiu slave. ry, if it should so choose, each could manumit tho slaves within its borders, each could render itself entirely a frco State. And both boforo tho adoption of tho constitution and since, many States havo actually acted for themselves iu re gard to the institution. Some havo manumitted their slaves, others have not. And there havo been instances, aniung tho present bl.ivoliolding States, vvboro eniaiicqi ition vvas formerly much nearer at hand than it seems lobe nuw. ' I well knew that, about fifteen years ago, pulilic opin. ion on this point, in various puts of Maryland and Kentucky, vvas greatly iu advance of its present state. Now, gontloniun, as tho consti. union left this matter of slavery, I am content it shall stand. (( npplau'o). I can see 110 benefit to cither parly tu this question in breaking up tho constitution. (Anplauso). And I advise the South not to risk that breaking up by the attempt to force moru slavery into thu constitution, with thu saino sincerity with which I would adviso Ibo north against tho foolish at tempt to force out what Is already In. I'ho con. Etitutiuu has nruvided nothing for tho iierpotua. tiou of slavery. It loaves that with tho States ineinseivcs. selves. And It appears- to mo one of thel foolish oxtremcB into which tho minds of very men will sometimes run, to talk of thu dissolu tion ofthn Union and overthrow of the constitu tion, fnr either purpose -he one ol the ahull- I lion, the other of the perpetuation of blave insti tutions. I shall not argue before this assembly of In 'tclligpiil citieiu, that Mr. I'o'k was noiinii itcd at lliltiinciro expressly for Texis. It is sull'i I cient to remember that- whenever we hear ol one, wo likewise hear of the other that lliey are always together that, like Castor and I'ol lu.v, when one is tnontioticu, the other follows or cotiri-c. It is ex htont, on the very face of it, that I'dI li was nniniiialed because he was tho man on whom tho leaders- of lb" annexation project could most confidently rely to carry out their scheme, and for no utber reason, And thi leads my mind to a reflect inn which fills tin- with pidfniind humiliation. The gentlemen who represented tho New England and Northern Stales in the Ihltinmrc (-'nine nt ion, went to secure, most of them instructed to insist on the nomination of Mr Van Iturcn. lb- had avowed himself against the annevatiou of Texas they were against it also. And had ho succeeded, tjioy would now lie as loud ii any ill nppo--lum to tiie project. Jrtit Mr. iu ISuicil vx.ts otil-j x ntuil or out-nninuuvred, I -mow not w liich, (laughter and cheers) and -Mr. Toll; was nomi nated. And nuw, at once, as by a miracle, a change is wrought in all the sentiments ol these gentlemen, and wo hear from them almost a nniver.-al shout lor the annexation ol Texas. Il does appear to loo that this Is all in-tauce of the abandonment of principle, and a lack of self-respect, which I know not where can be leled. I agree entirely, gentlemen, with those who say, and have told you that Polk is ibo syn- onyttu; ol I exa. It is indeed aid, in some i (.iont lemon, there is a sound heart in M 13 icliii (iii.irlers, lliat because I'olk is elected, the an- sells there aresuind heads in Massachusetts; mt.xation of I e.vas does not access inly, and 1n.1v , not actually, follow. I!al let us not bu beguiled 1 by pretences so Ibmsy.
