The argumint of Mr. Calhoun’s speech on the re- ♦eption of CaWoriita ’oto the Union, is thus stated by the W aih’ngton ooire-pondent of the Journal of “ Mi.CalhouL.'s u-tended speech has, I see, been already, every where, answered in the papers, so far jaliforeia His giound of objection is probably __ understood it is not that the people have no right to exclude slavery, if they please, but that the ssata has not been formud with the consent of, and under the laws of. Congress :—that Congress is the judge of the propertlme of her admir-'— • - -------- ' pre'serib ir admission ; that Con- These are Mr. Calbcnn’s position* as given by a frienA W e do not see how he can construct even a tolerable argument on so slight a basis. Let us ex­ amine them separately. T h a t the state of California has not Lem formed by leave of the federal government, and in pursuance of a law passed by Congress, is true enough, but it does, not follow that Congress should refuse to receive it into the Union. Search the constitution throi and yon will find no such previous condition • f any new state asking to be recognised as ui confederacy. In his own resolutions, presented in 1847, Mr. Calhoun expressly declared that when a territory is erected into a state, the will of its iuhabi- ;ress, is the foum ------ — ____ __ __________ — J that Congress 1 0 right to require any qualification but this, that they should present a republican constitution. Wc do not go quite so for as Mr. Calhoun in this respect, but it is clear that he cannot with any consistency to his own. declared principle, make this> objection Granting that Congress has the power to require that the new state be organized in porsaance of a law of Congress, it is clear that Congress has a right to dispense with this formality. If there be a want of the usual preliminaries in bringing the new state into the Union, Congress may, if is pleases, overlook them ; Congress may remedy the defect at its own good pleasure. I t ’s rostia'med by no rule of the eonstitution from doing so. A stranger presents himself without a letter of introduction ; if we taow hi* character and approve of his errand we have a right to waive th a t ceremony ; we make ourselves ridiculous if i profess tbemsE the prohibition of slaveryr in the territories, sai 'ould bo an atroeions viola- ntion. In largo cities, thieves and together, and form r.galar associa­ tion c f the constltntioi pickpockets come together, ai tions. In large cities, political knaves seek each other out, in liko manner, enter inlo a mutual under- standing, call meetings, and present and pass resOln- i* the only member who receives any compensation. As Speaker he is allowed per annum, nearly ?5000; at least that was tho sum allowed to Mr DaUas, by a law passed la 184S. and I think no change has been made in that salary since. I am the more confident of th'a, from a circumstance which occurred in the Kcu^c only two or three days ago. Some of the friends of Morales brought forward a propositioii to adraaee the SpeakeFe salary, wUcn h member rose and with crushing eSect produced the' joomal of the House of somo previous year, in which Morales’s vote was recorded againiit advanced the Speaker’s salary to i1 upon the ground that tho old salary was high enough. Of course the proposition met with no fa- Ihia, nor ings, and present and pass 'thing extraordinary in all 11 should our Uhester County correspondent be astonish- 10 prepared, and who have laid to be adapted at tbe- ed a t it. If the persons who published, the resolutions sai< Philadelphia meeting, call themselves democrats, it cannot be helped. People of ^that class often take fancy to call themselves by fine names. The public opinion of tho oitiieus of Fhiladtlphia remains-precisely wnat it was before, notwithstand­ ing the passing of these resolutions. It is said, how- 'over, that these resolutions go a little too far, in one respect, to please some of those who were concerned in getting up the meeting. Mr. Buchanan, it is well known, has been all along in : line of the Misaouri con 'hibiting slavery to tl ing the southern part of the territory open t< rfodaction of slavery. Tho fourth, fifth and liio resolutions adoptod at the Philadelphia r in favor of extendinj npromise to the Paoifii Corresponaence with the question of ala- is puts a direct ba way Of Mr. Buchanan’s scheme, and if he lOrlh of that line, and leav- , kod at the Philadelphia meeting, deny the power of Congress, under the constitution, to meddle, in any manner, with the quest; in the territories. This puts a direct barrier in in urging it, he must procure another meeting to got np, and provide for it a fresh set of resolutions. Meantime rest assured that everything proper time. W e have t a d democrats who weroibr the national bank ; we have had democrats, calling themselves democrats, who were for the worst and most objectionable schemes of internal improve­ ment* ; we have had democrats who ware against the sub-treasury ; we have had democrats in favor of almost every political heresy; but they have been successively beaten, got under afid silenced. This new form of false democracy, whiifh allici itself with slavery, cannot have a long existence. U E T T S a S E R O a i JAM AICA. SpANisHTowN, January 30, 1850. St. Jago de la Vega, now and for more than a hun- red years past,called Spanishtown by the people, is tie political centre of the island. It lies about east of Kingston, and is reached by traversing twelve out of tho only fourteen miles of railroad in Jamaica. The inhabitants do nothing here in a hurry, and it is that the average by the trams between the two cities, is not loss than 6 time made not surprising therefore, by the tram s belt forty-five minutes, or fifteen miles the hour, for which passengers are expected to pay the sum of seventy- five cen*s. Spanishtown is one of the oldest.plaoes on this c< tinent. Itt N supposedupposed too haveave beene( founded by Uiogt I N s t h b rho visits tho place that all the bonses at'presi fore Diego left the island, so old Columbus, the brother of the discoverer in 1523. No ,ho place now, will dispute iriOhce much difficulty in belie' will d its anti- lent standing, were b uilt be- and ruinous is their lernor’s residence is here; here the Parlia­ ment holds its session uniformly, and the superior courts occasionally; and here are the government offices and public records.

I had expected to find there, as in the United States and as in England, aU the troubles of the island finding expression. 1 supposed the reports, debates and legislative formulas would have revealed the activity, the tendencies, grievances, and in general the public sentiment of J a ­ maica, instead of which 1 found a body of men in no respect representatives of tho people, bolding lemslar tive office without the vital functions of legialatjirs. 1 will reserve the evidences of this statement and what else I have to say a bout the politics of Jamaica, for aaother communication. o f the E v e n in g Post.

The reports of the Commissioners on the Ce& of Pro- eednre lie piled up in tho garrets of the captiol. Tho last report has never been read, even, in tb s commit­ tee to which it was referred. Special acts of legisla­ tion seem to ocenpy the attention of the members, and among other grave subjects Is a bUl in the Senate, “ introduced by Mr. Johnson, and acsording to the journal of tho Senate, read there and referred to tho Committee on the Internal Affairs of Towns and Counties—reported favorably, with amendments from said committee, and committed to the Commit­ tee of the 'VYhole.” it is “ T o incorporate the New York Hotel Company.” It is proposed solemnly to enact that five persons, named in (ho bill, shall constitute a joint stock com­ pany, who^e business it shall be to erect and faraish a hotel in the city of New York. They may com­ mence business with a capital of $100,000, on which per cent, is paid in. They may increase the oa-* pital to half » million. W hen tho capital is paid in, five trustees are to be elected, who are to estimate tho value Of the hotel and grounds, when completed, and divide it into five thousand equal shares, to be distributed among the trustees in proportion to their subscriptions. The title to the property is to be in the trustees and their successors, h u t no provision is made for the election of any after the first board, and restriction is placed upon them, except to forbid tho selling or partitioning the property without the consent of the holders of the majorities of tho shares. ; do not dwell on the details, because they are unim­ portant, or defeative, except so as to bo easily reme­ died—but to show what business occupies the repre­ sentatives of the people a t Albany.

T h a t Mr. Webster is preparing himself for a set ech upon the admission of California, is certain ; sport that he has drawn up any partieular soheme of adjustment is probably without any foun­ dation. The soheme of the free puhUo buildings an them, represent the i about industry of the city. I did not see a store in the place, though there may have been one or two perhaps ; it has not a single respectable hotel, nor did I see a dray-oart or any similar evidence of activity and thrift, al­ though a population of 5,000 people ii laid to be lodged within its precincts. The oity is supported mainly out of the public treasury. Those that have anything, are generally oonneoted in some way, di­ rectly or indirectly, with the public service, and those that have not anything, wait upon those who The public baildingsdorm a quadrangle, one side of which is the “ King’s House”—the res donoe of the Governor—opposite to it is tho Parliament House, and the other two sides are devoted to the public efficea and courts.

The great impor­ tance the latter attach to thi* system of tactics is shown in the concerted a ttem p t which seem* to have been made lo operate upon the northern mind through the means of those despicable assemblages miscalled ' inion meetings.” It is shown, also, in the prompt- up to merited contempt, in a much more forcihla manner than had been done by any body else, the has endowed him with and genial humor, and moro than ordinary exe­ cutive tiients, which, with the aid of higu culture and rare experience, hiVe made him a tleoidedly notice­ able man.

Congress will stand nponan equitily idl«tpunctilio, if it excludes Califor- i>i* for the reason that she does not pTCSeut herSCif vith the formalities on which Mr. Calhoun insists. But it Is certainly not tho fault of the no stata, that it was obliged to frame its constitu. tloa without tho usual preliminary law of Con­ gress ; it is the fault of the federal government. C ^ g r e » refused to provide a territorial government fot California, which was therefore compelled to organize a government for itself. The inhabitants of|GaIifomia perceived that the dispute concerning slijTCty In the territories, prevented Congress from, giving them a government os a territory ; they saW th a t tho same cause might operate for years ; tHoy tr«Fo told 1 ^ the majority in Congress, and by Mr. Osjlhoan, th a t whenever (hey formed themaelvea into a ^ t o , they were entitled to decide the question of tol|Br»tiDg slavery for themselves; they formed them- «elYos intq^a state j, tk«y decided that question; they toqk the most obvion* method of satisfying the ma­ jority in Gongregs.

Humanity, sir, cannot fail to acknowledge its gratitude to having thus spared many a life to numerous f some of whose members become every year tim of their imprudeuoe. Having been from my boyhood a lover of field sports, having always taken the utmost precaution, in order to avoid any accident in the use of my weapons, and having thus, up to tho pe­ riod of the applioatiou of the principle of per- cusaioo, avoided even the accidental discharge of a gun while in my hands, 1 was astonished at ikQ nu­ merous calamities that are dally caused by the usd of percussion fire arms. It is true th a t ! have es­ caped uniojored ; but frequontiy owing to a fall, or while leaping a ditch, or riding through a thicket, my gun and pistols have acoidontally exploded.— Like most persons who meet with similar aocidanta, I thought 1 might have left my weapons cooked, a position which would, however, hare been much loss . dangerous than to allow (as 1, in common with tho generality of sportsmen, did,) the hammer to rest on th® cap. 1 never met a sportsman who did not re­ sort to this unfortunate practice, when ho Wished to place his gun in a safe position, instead of leaving it at half-cock, which is tho true mode of avoiding dan- ^ In order to prove the truth of this assertion, take an unloaded gun, place a cap on tho nipple, and bring tho hammer down on it. It will bo seen that the upper extremity of tho hammotia liable to catch every object which it encounters; that very little force ia suflacient to raise it, and that the objects which it may thus catch will almost always fioe them­ selves before it describes tho arc which it must tra- verbO in order to bring it to half-cock ; it oonsoquont- ly falls upon the nipple, and almost always explodes tne cap. This can readily be demonstrated by rais­ ing the hammer with the thumb, so as to bring it nearly to half-cock, and then allowing it to fall upon the nipple Try tho same experiment with a gun a t half-cock ‘.he result w»u eitber bo to cock it or bring it back its original position o f half-cock. It COQ thui HUSlly be demonstrated that half-cock is the only po­ sit, on which gives the sportsman the necessary pro- lion against tho accidental discharge of his piece. Hence, it is evident that a gun when at half-cook, is in a far more safe condition than when a t off-cock entirely ; for in order to discharge it when in tho latter position, it is necessary that some motive force should act on the trigger. Mow this force will al­ most alwavB act in tho first place on tho guard which protects the trigger, and if, by chance, it should touch tho trigger, it will almost universally do so ob­ liquely. and in many c ^os the trigger may bo forci- imps, and which is said to and a t the same time, to be cheaper stable, lard o give better light, ue, to be cheaper than either sperm, seed oil. It emits an odor while book with tho barrel, so that the latter transmits siir; t'L.it.psn;.’; raiee tho hammer, which will seldom fail to fall with sufficient force to disohargo the weapon. These truths cannot be too forcibly impressed on the minds of sportsmen, especially of the young, who arc SO ufteu the victims of lamentable accidents. 1 would suggest to tho manufacturers of fire arms to adopt tho use of four checks or rests, or throe at least; this addition would, 1 am sure, render the piece more safe. 1 venture sir, to hope that my oommnnieation will be more favorably received by you, than it was in 1847, by tho principal organa of the provision press, (the National, the Frosao, tho Dobats, and the Con- Ititntional,) whoso editors declined to insert it.

Hoffman, Esq , one of our most respeota- blo citizens. Mr. HoiTman was recently removed from the Euitom House, under the plea of retrenchment, to irMch he had been altaohed for several years, was in perftet health this morning, and while riding in tho railroad oar dropped from the seat and expired intly. He was universally respected by all who V him, and his death will bo severely felt by his family who, within tho short space of three months, ivo boon deprived of both their parents. Tho house No. 2 Little W ater street was discovered to be on fire last night, about half-past nine o’clock. The fire was caused by tho bursting of a eamphene lamp. The damage was trifling. A gentleman named Augustine Looks vras fined ton dollars, yesterday, for fast driving in Broadway. It served him right. 'Fho friends of those who are about to proceed in the steamer “ Wilson G. H unt,” to San Franoisoo, California, made a trial trip in her on tho 25th inst. 8he left the dock foot of Beckman street, about 12 o’clock, noon, making a circuit up the East River above tho Dry Dock, and then proceeded to sea, going about five miles beyond where the light ship was for­ merly moored, and returning to her berth by six o’clock, P. M. Tho whole company were delighted with her per­ formance, and but one aontimont prevailed, which was, that sho was so fitted up as to combine strength, ity and expedition. A fine collation was served when tho vessel was in the lower bay, when, ong others, tho following sentiment was offered by H. Willisti.n, Ocean House; to what the ■ould divest it _ irch and oongrogation, bei ____ plaster cf shoemaker’s wax, applied French call the crupion of an infant, v ________ of “ original sin” and “ total depravity.” Out friends have thus got tho ‘'w h e n ’ and \w h o re” Lord Bacon said it ; and. may Ho down and go to sleep eonlented.

In the District Court, yesterday, considerable ex­ citement was created by the reading of an indictment against the captain and officers of tho steamer New World, which left this port for California a short time since. It seems that a Sheriff’s officer had had poasessioD of hor for several days previous to her sail­ ing, on an execution for debt, inonrred in the process of building and fitting up the ship. But ODO day tho vessel suddenly raised steam, pul out into the bay, beat up a crew which had before boon concealed, and after landing tho officer on Platen Island, put out to sea. If this be so, tho offence is a serious one, as by too act of 17fHj It is defined to be piracy, for which the punishment declared is death. There was a curious moveir ent in the Board of Supervisors at an extra meeting held last evening.— Jndges Dener, Paine, and Mason, of tho t>uporiOr Court, and Ingraham and Woodruff, of the Uommon preside, and Mr. Talli ), passed in December, 1817, I shall be selected by a person ■0 was not a eommis- York, 2d see., ohap. 495, which enacts that jurors shi to be appointed by the Supervisors of tho city of New Y o rk,fee Judges of the Superior Courtandthe of the Common Pleas, and who shall be known lommissioncr of Jurors, and be anthorisod to appoint one or more assistants. The Supervisor of the Thirteenth ward wished to know if* they were qualified to appoint a commission­ er under that a ct—whether there ■ Alderman Franklin then rose and offered a resolu­ tion that Mr. W. A. Walker be removed from tho office he holds as Commissioner of J urors. This sadden and strange movement produced a hot debate, when Franklin, at the instance of Duer, withdrew the motion. Lain December, the Fhenix Bank of Westerly, bode Island, was broken into and robbed of about sixteen thousand dollars, mostly in coin. The police of this oity have sinoe been upon the look-out for the robbers ; but it was not until the 8th of this month that any clue to their wheraabonts was obtained. On that day officer Bowyer, of the Chiof’s office, toek into custody in tMs oity, a man named Thomas Ka- luse, and, assisted by Sheriff Lane, of Paterson, id officers Cole and Reed, of tMs city, arrested at Paterson, Lari Cole, on suspicion of being thegoUty ken, on a requisition from the Governor of Rhode Island, to Westerly, when arching examination, they were commi prison for trial in the Supreme Court, which sit* in August next.
