My Collcaguu speciliea a g.iihat Mr. Fillmore llius : " Al ihe commencement of the twenty ixth Congresa. Mr. H'ie, of Virginia, sub mitted a resolution lhat all petitions, memo riala, and resolutions, for Ihe abolition of slavery or the alave trade, in the Statea, Ter- 1 tiinries, or Districts, of ihia Union, should be 1 coiiRidered ns objected lo, and the question of reception laid upon the table without de I bate. Thereupon, instaiilly, Mr. F.Hmure, J of New Ymk, sliited lhal if it was necessary I lu ohjeel lo Ihe resolution, he objected. Up 1 on a motion to suspend Ihe rule for its in troduction, I find ihe name of W illinui (). Umler lecorded in Iho HfTirniiiiive ; an,: Ihe name uf Messre. Adama, ffiiidtng", Fillmore, &c., in Ihe negntive." 1 Now, air, the direct inference fiorn these remaiks i. that uiv Colieanuo ttiii.c.itlea jiita thn view of Mr. Wise, at presented by his resolution. That view denies to ihe citizen iho r 1 14 1 1 1 to petition for any legislation by Conjjri'.a respecting slavery or the slavn trade, because it is not in the nurpe'etuy of ( niinirss to act upon the qiesiion in unv aspi ct. It is clear lhal where Cong. is po sses 1 the power 10 act, Ihe constituent has a riyht I lo petition for action. The free etetcise of that right is consistent w ith the ilirrf In, 11 vested ill Congress, to determine ihe ep t), ency nf granting or refusing ih j . . n' the peii'ion ; for the dit nun f In- leeti ih right In p' tituui si.tl Ii ,t i n of cnticerimg the request if lb' pt.Hi 1 -r.

'I he istie heinj thu dialinctly formed up , on the conaiiiuiiofial power of Congiesa, may t we not asaisi our judgment upon Ihe correct- nes of Ihe reappiise conclut-ions of those gentlemen, by relerence to other passages of pulmcal history 1 j In the record of Ihe thirlv firt Congress, mntig thai enea of meusures known as "Ihe Compiomtae mi'asutes," 1 an act " to sup ptess Iho lme tud" in the Hitttict of Co. ; luiubta." It exhibit ihe actual exercite by Congress nf the identical power which n disiuied between Mr. Fillmore ad General liu ler, and the eicrcise nf that power, tun, over one of Ihe subject actually embraced by the lerma nf Mr. ise's res , lotion. Heie, then, t a stronger case for jj lnment ih.iu that aelectt tl bv my colleague, ll is tin pre limiiiary slep for ihe pai ii.nientsry disposi tion ejf a question, but an ncttial law- a b-g-i;aitve acl upon the tubject-inatter as to ' h ch hn case would on'y raise a qunitinn.

The iwenlv-first rule absolutely excluded ihe f.e ' dlion, ins'ead of making the disposition of it on the question of reception. The mullipli cation of examples, therefore, un this point has no furiher force than to indicate tho ms- lured and tueu conclusions aimed at in Messrs. Fulmme and I'ullcr. resuectivelv. upon the principle of the rule. But, sir, this llusiration is equa'ly uuforlunatc lor mj Co lesgue as the other. The twenty first rule was right or wrorg. If Ihe House did rent to adopt it, the House did wron" to rcneal it : because il asserted a principle and contained an exposition of a limitation upon tho constitutional power rf Congress. Adopted by Iho twenly-six'h Congreaa, it was repealed by lh? twenty- eigh h Congress. Adopted by a House con- (atning a Ddmocralic majority, il w.s repeal- ' ed by a House w ith a ) et larger Democrat- ic majoriiy ; and ihe latter dt ciston was con- firmed at the opening of the twenly ninlh Congress by another overwhelming Demo cratic majority. Who did right ? II is pa rt v has acnuiesced in the last decision, as that of" iis sober second thought." I must pie- sume, from Ihe approbation ol M r, 1 tllmore a sanction to the bill to suppress the siavo Inde in this District, which General But'er has given in his letter, thai he, too, wocJd now vote against tho adoption of the twenty first rule ; fur if he is not now w ii h M r.

The competitors for the Chief 'Magistracy were Hairison and Van Buicn, thai " noi'lhorn man w nh ruin her n pr iiie pies," whom the Deir,oc-acy so delighted lo honor.
