General Taylor has it in> hte fo w tr to save the Umen ^ the use o f the veto. There are only 'two ways by which he can save it, in the oircum- Btances sapposed. Those two ways are by the veto, ■ - • imedy and wiU Oj and pro-supposes civil war with all its tirea^ coosequences. The constitution gives him the veto pow'er, to be used on sneh an occasion. In his message he is made to say, that he will preserve the Union. W e appeal to our countrymen, of all classy and parties, and ask them i f he ^ o u ld not preserve it by the peaceful remedy. “ And ihoaM bo not, in this crisis, declare the al- tom a tixe which he will select 1 Should he not let hi* coontTymen know, before they are pushed by crimination and recrimination to the very verge of civil war, which course he will take to prevent such a catastrophe 1 Should ho not let the country know whether ho # iS preserve the Union b y the veto, or by a resort to conquering armies, whose march will be oyer the dead, bodies, &o., &c. W ill the people oi America submit to snob remedies in ;order to pre­ serve the Union, when i ( Can be effectually saved by the p eaceful veto J “ I t is, indeed, time for General Taylor to speak This is the way in which men, who are sapposed te he weak and irresolute in temper, are approached.— If, however. General Taylor should look back ailitUe Wfsj amohg his predecessors in office, he will seq that when a s tate refasei submission to a law of the Union, it doss not necessarily follow either that the c raoy'khoald recede from the law m question, gage in civil war. W h en South- Carolina was going no doubt,— fully put down by the the hands of Andrew and there was ground then i t doss not necessarily follow either th a t the confede- n to resist the ezeention of one of the w< ■ o l4 tariffs,— very objeotionablo law no doubt the contemplated resistance was fi civil force of the government, in tl J&okson. The revenue was collected, i no marching over dead bodies. The taken by Soul Qalhonn in the other southem states, was that all duties levied for p rotection were nnoonstitutional.— Since that time South Carolina has submitted very quietly to the levying of duties for protection, not only w ithout a resort to force, but without even rais­ ing in tho courts of the United States the question of their constitutionality. The tariff of 1842 was as Ba­ leded it,t, yetet thehe Southouth Carolinaarolina politiciansoliticians grantly unjust and protective as any of the tariffs ■which preced i y t S C p kept themselves warily within the limits of constitu­ tional opposition. It would it tber inal opposit lylor, instn sented to him. It w not surprise us if General ly this example, should not think 1 himself to be tossed on either of the horns of the dilemma which is so courteously pre- Taylo r, instm oted by this example, sboidd not think it necessary to allow himsdlf to be tossed on either of The attem p t of the fVashingUmRepublic, a journal high in the confidence of one wing of the whig party, to persuade General Taylor that he has made no such pledges as have commonly been attributed to him by friends and foes, is even more amasing than the one we have already noticed. A t the last previ- ton. Gene y to allow that he had positively engaged, before 30tion, to remove no fit and oempoteint •ffioe merely on account of his political views, but ready no ous dates from W ashington, General Tayloi ready to allow th a t he had positively engaged, I hU election, to remove no fit and oempote man from olaimed that he had strictly fulfilled the engagement by removing only* for misconduct and incompetency ■ Now that the proof is likely to bo-produced, that hun­ dreds of removals from office have been made,uirdor bis administration, upon mere partly grounds, it becomes necessary to adopt some other line of apology. It is therefore to be made out to General Taylor’s satisfac- - : tioa, that not only did he never make the promise attributed to him, but that, on the contrary, he posi­ tively engaged to turn the democrats out of offi ce and put Whigs ia tbeir\places. This is demonstrated by tho Republic in the fol following most satisfactory “ It was under these circumstances that the ^ whig •ooid be placed before the country aig the candidate of their convention, with due regard to the* usages s i t ?d mission to read a statement frem the delegation of Louisiana, in reference to the poBition of General Taylor. T h a t statement settled the controversy ; without it, General Taylor would not have received the nomination. From that stat<|ment we copy a • ^GenerafXylor, we are also authorized to eay.wil! choice of thit conTention ehoaldfall on another, if Gea- “ ^Ry this statement made to the convention, under these ciroumstances. General Taylor, in the face of the whigs and the whole people o f the country, was eommi^fed to a change of men and measures, if judge Saunders was authorized to act for him in the prem ista. * * The acoeptanoe of this nomination, i i Saunders’s statement to the cc tess promii Juntiy by itratioE This demonstration is woundup most satisfactorily, by sbowmg that General Taylor, in a letter to the independent Taylor Urgaoization in Masyiand, de­ clared that he hadidgivei given Messrs. Webster and Saunders houldei act for him, and that he would “ take upon his sihoulders the resyonsibility ol the Louisiana delegation, and stand by the consequences in their length .and breadth.” A fter this the Republic proceeds to say that Gene­ ral Taylor “ eonld do no less than he has done and authorized in the piatter of removals from office,’’ and that “ if any party has reason to complain it is the Whigs.” W e hope that General teful for these disooverit :ld o f embarrassment, rest o f the political world, have been under a most ex­ traordinary delusion in this m a tter, till we were freed to m .it by the friendly aid of the W ashington prmt A ll that'w a s said in General Taylor’s letters about nbt d istsrting worthy mon in offiefi for political rea­ sons, was meant not to bind him to any course uf The true intentions of General Taj not from his own explici ieolarations made in the whig convention by d u p in a genei and obscure phrase, which was uttered, not by hi but by a man professing to speak in his name, and from whioh.no suoh inference was made a t*the time as is now atlempted to be drawn from it. These are the arts of modem piditicians which are practised without shame. The people voted for General Taylor because they trusted to his engagement not to regard party differences in his Qovais and appointments-^the whig politicians nomi­ nated him in the expeotationt that he would make a sweeping change of men in office. The people ha -boon cheated ; the politicians have been gratified. lOn his sihoulders the resyonsibility ol t acts of th« grateful world o f embarrassment.

It is difficult to conceive that such an institution is a bank in any proper souse of the term, or that an act of the legislature ereaiiog such corporation, would ho ‘ granting a special ohar- ‘\n- for hanking purposes ’ ” This, probably, is a just construction of the oonsii- ition, but leaves still open the question of a general 1 paper has not yet ting all this, the Richmi made ont its case. The real distinction between the n o rth and tho south has not yet been touched. T h a t distinction is simply this; that the evils of society a t the south are syste­ matic, direct, and positive, sustained by both opinion and law, and proceeding inevita*bly from the very structure o f its insti^tions; while, on the other hand, the evils of society a t the north ate mostly inciden­ tal and illegal, and such as proceed from the feetion, rather than the direct action of our stUutioDS. If there are three thousand profligate children in lig c ity, it ia not because the state has not provided th4 means for their better edaoafion b erected institu- c a ^ e private benevolence has is unwillingnwilling too erectrect suchuch institutionsnstitutions ; butut itt is tiohs where they may be taken eare of, or, if it has not, is u t e s i ; b i is simply owing to the overcrowded state of our popnla tion, mainly of foreign i origin, and the destitution in- oidtof, thereto. B a t nbw that the evil is known, onr newspapers are filled with plans for its removal. Public sentiment is shocked by the fact, and chari­ table persons are already devising schemes lor the prevention of such a state of things for the future. Bat there is also this difference between the north and south—that here we are not afraid to admit the evils of our social condition, and to look them in the face, while at the south, the poor victims of condition resort to afl manner of paltry or the terrible •room even, resound with disouE insane shifts, to hide themselves from iniquities and dangers by which they are surrounded. Let any vice be discovered in the werking of our free ixstitutions, and instantly the press, the pulpit, and tho drawing-room even, resound with diiouMons of itsnatqra and causes, and probabit remedies. No ‘ man is pfraid to utter his sentiments in regard to i t ; ibabl# remedies. No no one shrinks from the task of attempting its re­ moval. But south of the Potomac there is a forced stagnation and stillness on tho fearfnl peouliarity of their social arrangements. There is not a man, editor, lacher or statesman—the poor cowards—not a man the subject. express themselves freely on the master preacher or statesman—the pi who dare* t? open his mouth 1 people, the lives freely c south. There is nothing in their treatment of their own social evils to preclude them from the most un­ limited criticisms of slavery. They do not spare their own sins ; and as the bearings of southern despotism are forced upon tion, it is perfeo their a ttention by theirifederal rela- t is perfectly consistent for them to speak and write of its results with the same free spirit in which they handle all other topics uov. r isn, in piacu oi xiaTiu nuoi, nuo m vo oo jj to the Senate the port of the Health Officer cf New \'otk, which is j Amount eolleeted .............................................. $18 122 60 from coasting vessels ............ 1 704 00 Expenses—Salary of deputy ............. $3,000 00 Six boatmen...................................... 1 020 00 Expense of collecting fees ............ ... . 483 OS ^ $12 422 81 ■Which with house and grounds, and victuals and drink, is a comfortable sum. DELTA C o r respondence o f tile E v e n i n g Fes$. W ashinotom , Jan. 20, 1850. 30 story that the President intends soon to send to Congress a special message on the slavery ques­ tion, is no donbt a piece of special humbug, i thiok it grew out of the fact that a message now lies on the Speaker’s table, and has done for a week, con- lying the answer to Venable's resolution about alifornian affairs, in which tho President may have taken occasion to iterate and amplify his views on the let alone policy. Still, General Taylor might do a less sensible thing than the sending a message to both Houses, inform­ ing the platters against the I 'nion what the consti­ tution requires him to do in a certain contingency, and that he is ready and determined to do it That an organized scheme for breaking up the tinion exists, and that eminent and powerful men from the south are ooncomed in it, is matter of every day averment. The controversy between tho general go. vemment and the owners of slaves has assumed a very serious aspect. All the politioiaos in the slave slates are either holders of slave neys and agents for those who are. Finding themselv es not likely to obtain all their imands, under the ^ present state of things, they wish to leave,the confederacy. A southern conven­ tion has been called by this class, to meet at Mem­ phis in June neit. Many of the delegates to that body will go there with a determined purpose to 30ut the secession cf their states from this t, including in its C o r r e s p o n d e n c e o f Uxa E v e n i n g P o s t.

The- T»ta upon this proposition was J00 to 98 Tho mo­ tion was to postpone a n t t j ^ ^ 20th March, 1851, and it was supposed by those who voted for it, that the effect would be to keep in office during the rest of tho Congros.i, the present doorkeeper and postmaster. But strange to say, a Tennessee member, a xMr Savage, was not eonteut with this construction, but immediately made the point of order, that officers of a former House could not act in their respective ca­ pacities for the present one, unless by common ac­ quiescence, and he, therefore, objected to Mr. Horner, the door-keeper, and hoped ho would be excluded from the floor under tho rule If this point of order be sue tained, the House will find it nooeesary sfill to go ei with the effort to elect the tn o officers not yet chosen Tho queatiuu will come up to-morrow morning on a motion to reconsider the vote, and it may occupy the whole of the week or th* month following.

The Concerto by Vieuxtemps, with which ho began, was executed with great taste, but without that decision and cer­ tainty of touch which marks the m a ster; at tho same tim e, it was evident that this was owing rather to the apprehensions of the young performer than to auy want of skill. He was foUowed hy Madame Stephani, announced to the bills as a native Hongarian, who sang a de­ lightful aria from tho Magi* Plate of Mozart. Her voice is a clear soprano of fine quality, a little un­ manageable to the lower note*, b ut deliciously sweet to tho upper, and controlled with a groat deal of dis­ cretion.
