THE COBURGS. Public opinion in England is excessively ex. asperated against Prince Albert, charging him with extending his influence from tho royal drawing room and chamber to tho Cabinet Coun cil, and even with divulging to his German kind red and friends the secrets of the government concerning tho momentous Eastern question. He is accused of being devoted to Russian inter ests, opposed to war, and cold with regard to the French alliance. - Prince Albert is charged with doing ell this, if not for the further aggrandizement of his fam ily, at least for the consolidation of the Coburg8 In the various positions occupied by them thru', out Europe. These Coburgs are petty princes belonging to the innumerable sprouts of German ruling families, who traco back their common origin to Wittikind the Saxon, for long years an undaunt ed antagonist of Charlemagne.

The Missouri compromise had in its day effect ed the settlement of an exciting and dangerous controversy, and he would not have proposed to disturb it; but the proposition having been made, he would have to act on it. lie made a long argument in suport of his frequently assert ed doctrine that all political sovereignty in Ter ritories was in the people thereof, and not in CoDgress. He denied the doctrine of Southern Senators, that under the equality secured by the constitution ...
