An exchan;c papersays: -- That a pelitiwn was presented to the Legislature of Mississippi, not long since, by Mr. B. 11. Rice, which amongst other things, pr3yed the Legislature, to hung all public agents who abusc their trust, and banish all swindlers to Texas." This how ever did not seem to quadrate with the views of that honorable body, fearing, probably, that it might tend to a too speedy depopulation of the country. No doubt Texas will mourn the rejection of a measure, that will deprive her of such a concourse of enterprising and valuablc citizens.

Miscellaeo s. Correspondence of the CharIcston Courier.. WASHINGTON, Feb. 18. The Supreme Court Room is now, and for some time promises to be, the most at tractive part of the Capitol. The Missis sippi slave case is on trial. Mr. Clay -and Mr. Webster are counsel on one side, and Mr. Cilpin, M r. Jones, and Mlr. Walker, oh the other. The constitution and laws of Mississippi prohibit the introduction of slaves into the state for the purpose of sale and traffic. The suits are brought to va cato the contracts of sale in such cases. Messrs. Clay and Webster sustain the va lidity of the contracts. Mr. Clay's argu ment yesterday was of surpassimg clo quence and power. Mr. Webster will probaWy be heard to-morrow. The Court Ias been crowded every day. The Am istad case comes up nexi. The House was engaged chiefly to-day, on the general civil diplomatic appropria tion bill. There was a Georgia war, dutiag the morning, which amused the house very much. Mr. Cooper, Mr. Warren, Mr. Al ford, and...

p6d in profottud stilh;ss-to have relapsed into the arms of her sweet "restorer." Just at this favorable moment, when all creation unites in fitting of the m.ind of the hermit for contemplation, I (in my night wander ings,) passed, in n'remote part of the vil lage of --, a very small cottage, or more properly hermitage; from which, while 1 was yet at a distance, glimmering rays of light seemed to escape. My curi osity was immediately on tip-toe. I be came curious to ascertain the cause of the light, at so late an hour, whether the habi tation was that of man, or an imaginary being; and why be, (as all nature did) should not refresh himself in the arms of repose. I therefore, with cautious step, crept slowly on towards this humble hovel, casting my eyes alternately from right to left, not knowing but their might be others as curious as myself, to make themselves acquainted with the inmate of this myste rious abode. However, the high pitch to which my curiosity had been wrought, hurri...

Miscellaneous. Extracts from " A Brief Review, of some of the points in the L'Anistad Case." The case of the slaves taken in the Am istad, from Haana, and the circumstances under wbich the district judge decided that they were not slaves either under the Spanish law or our own, is one of the deepest importance to the Southern States. When we reflect upon the important prin ciples that England has recently pronul gated to the world in the case of the brig Enterprise, and also upon the proceedings of the recent couvention, held in London, from different nations, on the subject of emancipation, connected with the mad and reckless movements upon the same sub ject in our own country, no man who is conversant with passing events can fail to be deeply impressed with anxious solici tude for the future. Many are so absorbed in the party contests of the day, that they seem to have forgotton that they have a country, and that she has been wounded in her most vital interests. The day was when m...
