Dead letters, instead ol being returned here wllhln six months, as heretofore, are now returned within half that period of time, thus proportionally facilitating.the reitorallon of valuables to their own- ers', as well as preventing the Inconvenient accumu- lation of such letteisat the various post-offices. This new arrangement works well. The n- eral suggests an alteration law, to return thi m within a itlll shorter space of time. The official documents lubmltted to the Senate on the call of Mr. SPUMES embrace the correspondence of our Minister to Rome with the Papal Got eminent, concerning the outrage on the family of Mr. Pin- and Jtrs. at Perugia, and show ttie rmnl settlement of that affair by Cardinal ASTOHILU.

SENATE. Wednesday, Jan. 25. Mr. LIKE, of Oregoh, presented Ihf pro- ceedings of the Union Meeting 'in New-York, and read a letter from the Secretary of the meeting, stal- tog that the citizens of that City are true to the Con- stitution and the Union, and wish the fact known. Mr. LABB expressed the pleasure It gave him to pre- these resolutions, though he might not agree wtth errery word therein contained. He hoped these Meetings were Indicative of a sound sentiment at the North, and that they would continue to be held. He uored that the be read. Mr. HALS, of New-Hampshire, objected to fhetr reception, on the ground that the Senate bad heretofore refused to receive a mere record and ex- pression of opinion which required no action al the hands of this body. Ha made the objection In no feeling of unklndnees. He was as mucb gratified as any one at the expression of patriotic sentiments. Mr. Lias said if It was not in order to receive the resolution, he honed they would be incorporated in tte remarks he hacTmade. Mr. BALI suggested that the subject be laid over till to-morrow. If the practice of the Senate bad not been what he bad supposed he would withdraw all objection. Mr. DAVIS, of Mississippi, thought Hcoiild wrtpropeily go on the flics of the Senate.

They knew, und the world knew, thut 11 was only by a uEionof tlieue three organizations that they could I hope to beat down the Republican Party, to which they all, no doubt honestly, professed opposition. Com I bincd together, they had a majority anil the power In their own hands, and yet they bad failed to carry out what they professed anxiously to deelie. This wnsbecaiife ibcy had allowed party prejudice and party prlile lo Interfere with their patriotism. There would be no election resulting in the success of that side of the House, unless there was a cordial and a hearty union. They were all on the same glorious old ship whlcb their fathers built and launched on Ihe sea of national existence. Their fa- thers furnished a chart anJ sailing directions, and they had differed honestly among themselves as to the best way to sail the ship, and the meaning of Ihe chart They all agreed that the ship was originally built to be, under frovldcnoc, the of the world, and they had been, from time to time, saving (lie poor nrctchtB who came to Ihcm upon rafts and plunks from the wrecks of jtlic old world.

Not more than a rifle shot from his own rebldrnce was tbe rendezvous of those gallanl men, at tbe base of a hill, w here a beautiful spring wells up in the sunshine, and there, on tbe 10th of June, 1775, assembled that hand o( heroes, and ihelr rallying cry was, A bee line Boston." Their own homes were safe, but a elsler colony was In pcitl. and they marched to the rescue.

Mr. BtBvass, of Pennsylvania, proceeded to rroly (o Mr. BOTILBA, CM to Mtww what be coa- nldered rcpruaehes Wr He that tbe Southern men were the Democratic Pany, lhat those acrtog with them were parasites. Mr. VAUUNDIQIIAII, ol Ohio, called him to Older for using such language. Much conluilon prcvjiUed during this part of the proceedings. Mr. Bravura replied that If he knew what language Mr. VjioABDiaBAii preterrcd be should use It Bui If the language was offensive be would withdraw it, and say that ihoce acting with the Southern men are satellites, revolving them according to the law of gravitation. [Laughter.) After stating how unfair It was to ask Ihe Republicans lo disband, he said that Mr. BUCDAJIAB was a politician as well as a states- man, who thought the only way to aid the Democratic Party of ihe Norlh wag for the South to frighten them into the belief that )f they ventured lulo the election the Union would be dissolved, and all Uieir indui- lilal and pecuniary interests sacrificed. He be- lieved this whole programme was drawn no In the While llouse, anil followed out, as he repeated, to aid Ibe Democrats of the North by frlght- tiilng old women aiad men In peltlooats. Wnen Ihls programme It sulflolently used, a word from the White House wUl organize the, House. We should, he said, stand by Mr. BUBMAH If the House do not organize till the crack of doom. C Cries of Good" fiom the Republican tide.] He proceeded to state the principles of the Republican Pany. They are founded In the love of universal liberty and hostility to Slavery and oppression throughout Ihe world. If they had the legal right and physical pow- er, they would abolish all servitude and overthrow all despotism under the sun. Out they claimed no such belonged to tbe Father of men. Tney claimed no right to Interfere wlUj ihe IruUtudoDS of foreign nations or tbe Institutions of Ibe sister htatcs of this Republic. Tney could wish that Russia and Turkey would liberate their serfs and tbe South her slaves. But Ihe laws of nations gave them no tucb power in the oue case nor the Constitution In the other. He denied that there ts any desire or Lnttnllon on tbe part of the Republi- can Party to Interfere wllb those loilttutJons, and II Is a stern, Inflexible principle of Ihe Republican Party that every law mint be obeyed unless II becomes so Intolerable as to justify rebellion. While Ibe re Is liberty of speech there Is no power which can preveat tbe utterance of these whenever they msy deem pioprr to do so. While they would not Inter- fere with Slavery In the States, they do claim that tac power to regulate and abolish til.-tvery In toe territo- ries exists In Congress aud nowhere else. We are resolved lo slant! by thcte principles until they be- come triumphant, and we cbeerlully submit ibem to ihA judgment of onr fellow-c.ountiymen and to the civilized nations ol the earth, and to posterity. Mr. GABNETT, of Virginia, aikcd the gen- tleman If he held It expedient to exercise power to abolish Slavery in the District of Columbia? an I would he apply It to arsenals, dockyards and coav.- wljc ccmme-ce? Mr. SriVBSs could fct no difference In the jurisdiction over the District ot Columbia and the arsen.ilH and He wan not prepared to eiy the fame of corntw FC commerce.
