Two amend infills were inude, and iu lhal cundilion the House left llio htll At adjournment. One of those amendments makes the bill take eifeel, if mloplutl, frnin ami afior (lie first of July next. The other proposes inslend of a unilorm rale, five cents on Icllrrs conveyed under three hundred mile, and ten cenli for ail distances over and above three hundred miles. These amendments will, we belie e, receive the sanction of IhcSenalc, w hen submitted to thai body, if necessary to the success of the bill. The National Intclligcnrer of Wednesday espresscd ihe opinion that the bill would pass the House as amended, during the forenoon of thai day. Ominous Sn.KNir.

The reader is referred to ine Iciirr of our Washington correspondent, for a graphic sketch of Hill Allen's speech in the U. 8. Senate. It would have been a treat worth a day's journey, In have seen and heard ihe man. How he must have spread himself how warlike he must have looked, when shaking his head and fist at (imnl-Britnin, and denouncing her "mouopolixing schemes." To borrow n phrase from a Sunilor nearer home, it must have been "rich, and racy." (treat danger will threaten our pence and quiet when Eng-land, under the direction of Wellington, gets her howitzer btiileri' planted on the highlamls that form the Maine boon-d.iry! When tho Senator descended to tin) plain, and discoursed about commerce-, tonnage, and commercial rivalry, what a pily that ho eould not have been iuvested with his favorite garment, a petticoat it would have served instead of the toga, and he llieu would have looked the Roman. The Baltimore papers spy that Hill concluded his spcerh on War and Annexation, with the significant remark "That he feared this great measure was In fail by one vote if io, lie prayed God that il might not be a democrat's " Thai he should pray (iod fur anything is strange but if (or anything, llieu Jusi such a wicked, graceless thing as this of Annexation, might be expected to form Ihe burden of his spasmodic ejnculnlio.is. Il is Democratic, is it T lu preach the lac redness of imtructioni, and then to invoke tho Deity that no "democrat'1 might be permitted lo obey litem! Il il alio Democratic lo esiend the boundary of Slavery in the iinme of Freedom, and io Into Representation on Properly in prnnt! This is Ihe end of tho Demagogue.

They now discover the deception thai wn praclired, and irn-y are giving a forrlasle nf what they intend lo do at tliu bnllulbox next lall, to vindicate l hemic Ives. Vt lis pujm the Pstty t There is a wilful stublKirnncss in llie free-trade theorists on this qnciliou, which at least entitles them lo llie credit of perseverance, however bills il may contribute to elevate them in Ihe scale of dilute rcusoncrs, or sound political economists. The New-York News, in its commercial article of a recenl date, renews ilg dogma on this subject with the demonstration which follows: "The theories thai have been promulgated, lo the effect thai the foreign manufacturers diminish the price of the arli. clei taxed on ibi nn of I lie water, lo the extent of the lax, are sumricully absurd in themselves mil to require any sen. ous aptieitl lo fnets such an are niauifexl in Ihe case ol iron. Il would of ihelf sollice lo bring ihu matter home lo our own producers. Th cotton mnuu fm-Hirers ol Knglnud are luiior-mg to undersell the world in lubnes made ol a raw materitil grown only in the United Stales, but they pay their own government a lax of U cr cent, comumplioii duly on ihe article. Do our piHiiters in consequence of thiU lax, deduct B m cent, from ihe price of the cotton 1 Surely such an idea never was enieriained fur a moinrnt." This is lagging the question on a proposition of its own, and does not meet the case When plain facts are passed by, on which the friends of protection are willing lo rest the question, ill vain having clrjllcuged controversy, why cite such a caso as the above ? There is no room for difference here, and it may be taken as a concession of the whole ground. No one knows belter than tho News, thai the Kuglish manufacturers are at Ihis lime petitioning Ihe Hritijh Government lo abolish all dulic on raw Cotton, for the plain reason thai I hey have to depend on fortign supply. Did they produce llie article for themselves, would lliuy do ilf By no means, as il demonstrated by their Com haws, and llie numberless provisions fur the prottctiim of (lie produce of their Colonies. The duly on Cotton was for revenue ; and as long as ihe d'owr employed in our manufactories was unprvttettd, their manufacturers could afford to pay it. J)ul fhotixtion has enabled American manufacturers to enter inio conielilion will) the ltrilmli manufacturer, and how the duly on tho raw material il demanded lo lie taken off for whose benefit ?

The following facts, in addition to those furnished a lew days since, have been gleaned from the Report of the Coiumiaxioner uf Patents, Hon. II. I. Kli.swuiitu, by die Baltimore Hun.

IxTEHrsTtna Dklision. -The Court of Sessions of New York, has decided in Ihe caic of Samuel Adanis.of ('hillico-the, iu this Slate, that the Court had no jurisdiction in the case, the offence (if any) having been committed in Ohio. The Kccordur delivered die opinion of ihc Court. The question of jurisdiction would be carried up to the Supreme Court, on n, ease agreed upon by ihe counsel of parlies.

Those who liocucd lo hi lectures in ihis city, w ill recoiled the argument that preceded Ihe aualyiis of llie play, designed lo account lor the painful imrel excited by porlious of the drama, and to rescue art from the weakened judgment of ihe undemanding. Tim appropriate interest, he contended, of a work of arl is neither lhal ol the unreal, nor thai of the actual, but'tunply that of (he ideal. The proper antithesis of Ihe ideal is, not ike real, bul the actual " The ideal," according to Mr. II., " is even more real than Iho actual, inasmuch as ihc former esi'U for all limes aid all places, whereat ihe Ullet ran only have a kical and temporary niitence-There is a ituih of Nature, and a truth uf Art ( a Iwauly of Nature, and a beauty of Art. These, though analogous, are hot identical ; and, as ihey are not ihe same in themselves, so they mny not addressed to the same faculties. We contemplate alistract irwb only with an intellectual interest in dividual life only wiih a sympathetic interest. The idral of Art unites the interest of Imlh. Indeed, il is the harmonious equilibrium of the abstract and Ihe individual, thai (lie ideal, which is the province of Arl, consuls. Hence Art, in some respects, is, liir us, superior even to Nature : inasmuch as lite former unites an iniellertunl and a sympathetic interest in one and the same process ( where is Nature, of hcrsrll, secures but one of them al once."

Now, it is not difficult to see lhal ennfi-ienee in such a report, would do much In weaken the opposihonto Texas in the Senate. Such a policy on the part of (ireat Hiilnin would have a tendency to awaken a corresoudiiig spirit and policy in the tinted Slates, by producing a conviction that conquest and aggrandisement are necessary iu self-dcfwice. The conviction is now forced on the mind that the Texas bond holders and other ditinttr ttttd friends of Auueialion, havt let these report! alloal as powerful appliance lo compass the success of Annexation.
