North and South, snch are the carious excresenees which spring up from the "prolific •oil of our popular institutions, from thd inquiring and restless'Splrit of the age, find from the shifts and crotchets of desperate politicians and self-sacrificing fanatics. But it appears that in General Henry 8. Foote these southern Atrican slave traders ai Vioksburg caught a regular Tartar. Ho was prominent among those great statesmen and patriots who supported and secured the pas•sage of, the compromise measures of Henry Clay, and has always evinced a true and loyal devotion to the Constitution and the Union, to which he is still heartily attached, as his late speech abundantly proves. He has always been opposed to Jefferson Davis, and his comments upon the speeches delivered by Davis in New England and Mississippi, last year, an particularly severe. A man of this temper, of this enlarged experience, and holding this independent position as a southern statesman, says the S.Y.Acrald, was the very man wanted at VIokaburg to take the starch ont of those rampant fire eaters.— And it was some lucky Inspiration that brought him into this Convention, and nerved him to the task of demolishing poor Spratt and his clique of African slave trade engineers. B«ad the speeches of General Foote, and then, reader, answer us, was not Foote the giant among those pigmies, striding about among them, sad trampling them an angry Gulliver among the Lilliputians 1 The programme of Mr. Spratt comprehended, it seems, a report in favor of the revival of the African slave trade among the Southern States, in defiance of the laws of Congress. It further appears that the Convention was asked to give a sort of semi-official endorsement to this report hi ordering it to be printed, which at onqe brought General Foote to the rescue of the constitution and the laws; and the basting which he administered was terrible. Spsatt had his allies, his confederates on the ground. They came np to his relief.— They boldly defended his policy of importing niggere from Africa without leave or license, and at all hazards and to the last extremity; but they failed to save Spratt. Hor did the terrible wrath of Foote stop with Spratt. All the Spratt clique, of slave traders came in for a roasting, and W. H. Seward and Barnwell Khett, as unscrupulous sectional agitators, were skinned alive. The Convention did resolve, notwithstanding all this, thai the laws of Congress interdicting the African slave trade ought to be re- repealed ; but we have every reason to beliere that, had not General n Foote stirred np the fire-eaters with his long pole, they would have resolved upon the revival of the African glflve trade as recommended by Spratt, in defiance of law, of the government and of public opin- of the speech of Mr. Spratt, of South Cwoli- . , -. a e we. ftna, and spre»aing before him wrenl page* j »ent tlmej in snob a condition aa not to behos- followa:. ~f: , A graver occasion thu the fcreaent ofte e«fi- -not weUbeimagined to &&• among » pBOple .

It !is. I assure you affected modesty, thrtIaeknowladge, painfully aokBBwledKe, »y ow^ooaioloBsneM «f not being ready, of aot being prepared.thus suddenly called upon,.,to discuss the great question before you In the manner worthy of the audience, and in harmony with tlie dignity of the subjects involved. I shall endeavor calmly, patiently, and—Jf I can do w—mel Ihodioally, to turn my attention, and to Invite your attention to the most prominent of those topics that have been discussed i» your hearing for the last two day*. May I ask of my' own friends to withhold any tokens of applause. I need them not, and they would interrupt the course of debate. It has always struck me that the very btghwt compliment a speaker oan possibly receive from an audience is that of profound silence while Jie addresses them. I congratulate myself, Mr. President, that a very extraordinary proposition, which was made this morning, has been voted down. (I mean the proposition to restrict speakers to half an hour ) Had U been adopted it would appear to the whole American people as If a dominant majority in the body, having discussed a subject on tbeir side, had dre aded the effoot of an honest reply. J shall endeavor not to be tedious, but I hope to be indulged it that-freedom of remark consistent with all (£• courtesies of debate, which the occasion demands and the state of the country requires. I told yon last evening that I was no partizan I belong to no political party under toe sou. I do not know one under the sun that would .be willing to claim me. f Laughter.) I ask the sympathies of no regular partizan on earth. However others may &el, I rejoice in being entirely free from party trammel*. I thank God that I am allowed to think for myself, to act for myself, to feel like a free man, entitled to exercise the highest faculties of human nature on such questions as may address themselves to my mind, without any man having a right to call me in question—that I can only declare my opinions, but act according to my own Judgment, and to that conscience which, under the direction of the Doitr. shall ever control my actions. Therefore", what I say will be understood, not as uttered in a par- tizan sense or with partisans intentions. I care very little for snch parties a* now exist. I know they are ephemeral. I know they are not founded on principle. You know it.— Theirs is a mere 'struggle for the spoils—a poor, vulgar, contemptible straggle for thu spoils. I never had any appetite for such a contest. (Laughter.) 1 never had a taste for it, I abhor such a contest. I recoil from it instinctively with .horror. I care not what the drawling striplings of the press or others may choose to say for the entertainment o'f ftetr' not know that It r J"" 11 " to pwve It. tsble^ asserts the " feat the pre- one ground, to wit : thesu *"":*""5?™Vl!? onec * meaupremaorof the •outb, ai d to limit th* polltio.itpow>r of this _ T nm frvuvvw«M>£rv *•**,•• wt. axuisB ,. .- „,* *"» •oqwOnted with agentteman— » v «y ?3iTO»Ue^,o certain political satats, who took a tr p to iNew ^England lrtt«mimiWa tt»n of riry sagacious Intellect, of great aonte- a«ss of mind, of much cloaenew of obsem- tipn, andi who, for weeks and months, sojoara- *A in the, bosom of Sew, England sorfety, to the midst of ths jabolitkm forces of Jfew E«Rland. - Hjt did not hesitate' to praise teem to their facei ; 1n language of extravagant, oommen- - '" _ dation, I, jperbays, men of somewhat del- ioate tasfcj in onr own section would have recoiled from. Not only that; bat When he came to.hta own tome, he proclaimed in the ctpital of the State and here that the whole bulk of. northern;, democracy bad become so thoroughly enlightened on the snbj-ot of do. Bustle; slavery that there was no longer any Janatio hostility in the north to that system ; that toe whole body of democrats there conld be as fully relied on as the people oi the sooth themselves. I rejoiced at reading that dee-lar- aifon of Colonel Davis, because I hollered U Was founded on fact. I was willing to receive thai declaration even at the hand* of an adversary, and I did not withhold my approval and applause from Its utterance. If the democrats there are sound, there are others very sound too; Th« Fplmore men are sound ;— and proposes to ycjn armed resistance to the | Uws of your gotre yon know that. fUlmore was th« only n,an who was rdn for the Presidency in 1856 on a sound slavery platform. Buchanan was ran on« squatter sovereignty platform, one of the propositions of which asuurted, in language which no man can question, the right of the people of a territory at any tine, by legislation, either to exclude or to admit slavery, as they chose. Away yo-ndSHi, on Ihe shores of the distant Pacific, mindful of the rights of my couutrj- meu, and seuing the danger to which they w»re vxpoaed by that most damnable heresy incorporated most imjii.'aaly in the ancient democratic creed of tin- country, I d«red iu every part |of the State, in every village and ion. For the present we have but little further to say upon the subject than to eipress the hope that General Foote's plain speaking to these Yickslmrg commercial gentry done them good. We consider him entitled to a full hearing, and we cheerfully accord it, in the belief that hi« v-iflira will ojMratu to attract the public sentiment of the north in the right direction. II General Foote has not demolish«-d the underpinning of these southern political slave traders, we are somewhat mistaken. Was there ever snch another gathering In all this world as the Vicksburg fire eaters' Con rention ? Let Garrison and his motley crew of old women in breeches, and would-be-men in petticoats retire from the field. Tbfy .ire tame, flat and stupid compared with i^ts* fiery, fussy, belligerent and terrible southern salamanders. We hope that no one will fail to read this speech, as it proves that a bold, courageous man may -denounce nullification, disunion, treason, and the re-opening of the slavo trade, in their stronghold, if they have any. readers, in regard to me or my course of conduct. 1 intend to speak truth, honestly and bodily, too, and I intend to ntter nothing that I cannot maintain by evidence. If 1 am able to maintain the position which I assume, then 1 expect my countrymen, without regard to pjrty—not uuch as are tied down to party bondage, bat those who are moderately free from party thraldom—to approve, to some extent, the humbl* suggestions that may ffell from my lips. It is proposed to the body, and through this body to the Southern people generally, to open the African slav« trade ; and there ere two modee snggHSted One ie ths apprentice system, and the other is the importation of Africans for th<> purpose of holding them in bondage. 1 shall not discuss the apprentice system ; I shall only allude to Urunningly. Uta sufficient for me to know that th»t system (as the gentleman from South Carolina,Mr.Spratt, very correctly gtated yesterday) is a- strongly and clearly and unequivocally forWddeu by the laws of the Union as tht- other gyst«m. In " Squealing and Kicking. The Sentinel has been " squealing and kicking" for some days, " but whether it was the squealing that made it kick, or the kicking that made it squeal," we were unable to determine until yesterday, when it spoke " and let the worst be known." It hi now quite evident that ont gallant cotemporary has got it Into his head, somehow, that the Adminirtra- tion actually appointed s man to some beggar, ly office, without consulting Judge Larrabee. It probably has refernce to the office recently vacated by Mr. Shaw. If we have been correctly informed, the Administration did appoint Mr. Ferguson, of Fox Lake to succeed Mr Shaw, on the sole recommendation of Judge Larrabee, and on his declining to accept, another -individual was appointed, without consulting any one ia this part of the State, for the reason, we presume, that it was important to have a person to fill the place at once. We have not taken the slightest interest in any appointment of late, except that of Superintendent of Schools for Milwaukee, which is an office worth having. It pays the incumbent 82,000 per annum, for doing nothing. As Esquire Seymour wonld say, U is not an office of honor nor labor, but of " emolnmatlon." other words, "the importation of persons held to soi-vW from abroad, is expressly prohibited under heavy penalties, and has bean prohibited for more lhan'fcrty years The courts of the country have enforced th« law. and there never has been but one opinion among lawyers and jurists as to tha meaning of it. 1 •oggvst- ed yesterday to my friend, Mr. Moody, that th» apprenticeship system was -at variance with the laws oi Mississippi, and I asked hrm whether those persons to be brought in as apprentices, would be, in his judgment, Uoiid or free—would they be freemen or slaves? I w»o aot answered satisfactorily They must b* either slaves or freemen. J know of no middle condition. Now, if they are brought in ae slaves, of course all admit that th* present laws forbid their Importation. If they are brought in as freemen, then the statutes of Mississippi forbid their beingbronght here under heavy penalties. The importation of free persons of color w exprwjgly forbidden by the plain statute that is lying there on the table and with which every intelligent man here is familiar. Therefore, u I (a id yesterday, « is better for us to correct the condition of our A ElSIBO IB BUSOABY.—A Paris correspondent says: "It ig said that proclamations have been (or areto be) circulated in Hungary calling upon the people to throw off the domination of Austria. Perhaps Hungar* will be offered as a bait to Kuswa.- Itis certain, however, that the Cabinet of Vienna .professes to feel no sort of alarm about Hungary, and disbelieves the possibility of a rising." If the Hungarians allow the present opportunity to pass by without asserting their Jnde- *na when LOOM Napoleon is prepared to back I them With the armies of France, ft proof jwsUive ^ tha 8ympathy for them «, this .country in 1851, when Kos- •utb was tore, was undeserved. own household before we apply to the general government to do so. But again, my friends, I would like to know what would become of these apprentices after their contracts had been served out? If fifty or a hundred, or l«ro hundred thousand of these free negroes—<Jemi savages from Africa—chon to distarb the ani- etjof our community, they would bring upon us all those desolating evils which we had hoped to have guarded against by the wtse legislation to which I have referred,and which absolutely prevent the entrance of free persons of color from abroad within the limits of this State or Confederacy. Again.what would become of their posterity 1 Wonld they not be free? I suppose so. The gentleman, Mr. Moody, said yesterday, a father can- bind his child by contract. Hot to shivery, I think.— But suppose he conld bind him to that sort of servitude spoken 6f, could a father, tea yea's before his child was born, make any snch bar-' gain that wonld be effectual? 1 think nol I put these points for the purposs of exploding a theory which i* not entitled to any respect at all, however respectable its author may be,— The apprentice system, in my opinion,, fcae vanished into thin air. It neve/ had any solid ground on which to rest among rational creatures. * * * And now to the qnesttoni which come np in the speech of the gentleman from South Carolina, Mr. Spratt. These, Mr. President, are extraordinary resolutions : Buolved, That slavery l> right, and being right that can be so wrong ID the satiral means to Iti forfca- tloo. Now I undertake to say that for tie hist two thousand years anoh a proposition has never originated before among rational creatures — "Resolved that slavery is right." Understand olty -of |hat coast, to dt-n ounce the heresy and to prevent the evik which have since arisen in thu country. Mr. Buchanan's letter of acceptance endorsed, in the most unequivocal phraseology, the satbe princi file, dangerous as it is Am I denouncing anylK«iy?

Mr. Lawton, of South Carolina— Will the gentleman be kind enough to explain the recent declaration of a loader of the great Dart? of the north—Mr. Seward—who said in his Erie speech that the destiny of this country was either tor slavery or freedom ? How can the gentleman reconcile that declaration wiUi what he has just said 1 Mr. -Poote—My dear air, take your seat and I will explain it. I am astonished the gentre- man shonld ask such a question. 1 have yet to learn that that accursed monster, called William H.
