Too-ns voted for the reception nf Aboli tion l’eii'iims in Congress, and has promised tIn,i the Colonel n ill scum “put h rnseif right before the country upon tit's subject.” As il,e first Monday in January is near at band, nod there is no prubtibility that the promised expos itinu «ill be forth coining in time for a reply to be circulated before the election, mo will join issue upon the denial of the Patriot, and proceed to prove the charge. The charge is. that Col. Towns voted for Pinck ney’s resolutions ill 1836, which admitted tlm re ception of nbulition petitions. Now for ibe proof. In Niles' Register, vol. SO. page 250, we find the yeas and nays on each resolution repuried by Air. Picluiey. \Vo will quote the second and third resolutions. ‘■2-1. Resolved, That Congress might not to in terfere, in any way, with siuvery in tito District of Colitiuhia, 3d. Resolved, That all petitions, memorials, res olutions, propositions or papers, relating in any way, or to any extent whatever, shall, without be ing either printed or referred, be laid upon the in- hie, und that no further action whatever shall he bad thereon.” Col. Towns voted for each o( these resolutions —-it least, so says the authority to which reference has been made. But, Col. Towns will nut deny having so v >ted : Is nut then the charge sustained ? Winn says iho 3J resolution ? “That all petitions, memorials, resolutions, pro positions or papers, relating in any way, or In any extent whatever, to the subject of slavery, shall, without being either printed or referred, lie laid up on the table.” But how could they he laid upon the table unless they were first received l Tltev must he received, and ho in possession of the Mouse before any disposition could ho made of then,. 1 the District ol Columbia, according to their represen tative population. Air. VV. moved iho previous question, and the reso lution was adopted nem. con. A law in compliance With this proposition lvili no doubt, ho enacted. The same rule nf appointments already applies to Midship men and Cadets. 1 Mr. Wiuihrop of Mass., offered the followin''' series nf resolutions, and gave notice that lie would call them up lor debate. Resolved, That the difference between the United Siaies and Great Britain on the aueject nf the Oregon 1 erritory are still a fit subject^for negotiation and com promise ; am! that satisfactory evidence has not yet been afforded that “no compromise which the United tiiales might to accept” can he offered. Resolved, That it would be a dishonor to the age .n "hich mo live, and in the Irghesl degree discreditable to both nations concerned, if they should suffer.them selves to be drawn into a war, upon a question of no im mediate or practical interest to either of litem. Resolvid, Th it if no other mode for the amicable ad justment of this question remains, it is due to the prin ciples of civilization and Christianity that a resort to ar bitration be had ; and tiiat this government cannot re lievo itself from all responsibility which may follow tlio failure to settle the controversy whdethisresort is still untried. Resolved, That arbitration does not necessarily in volve a reference to crowned heads, ami that if a jeal- ousy of such a reference is entertained in any quarter, a commission of able and dispassionate citizens, cither horn the two countries concerned or front iho world at large, offers itself as an obviouB and unolqectiunable alternative. Mr. Douglas of III., offered the following resolution, which lie said he would move as a substitute for Mr \V. when they came up. Resolved, That tin-lit In of the United States to Ore gon up to latitude 54= 4(j' j s nut a subject for corn- promise. Resolved, That said title ought not to bo submitter] to arbitration. <£eovijfa ZLcflteTatttvf. SENATE. Mondav. December 22, 18,45. [As we give in another part of our paper tito list of acts passed bo'li branches of the Legislature, we have then the charge against Col. Towns that ito voted - 11111 '[ied the “bills passed” and “bills lust" an i| le , )ro . for n resolution which admitted n reception ofahul- j " f '' ad ' , . itiuil petitions fuiau ? And is it false, that nbulition „„, 1* 0 ro '" l " ulw ' ,lll! ^npropr0,||_h-av- . . , r , 1 mg added numerous muter appropriations ‘oy way of petitions were actually received bv the House un der lliut resolution 7 Hu cannot pretend to say so. Surely the Albany 1’ntriot in denying the truth of the charge “by autbority” did not receive tlmt “au thority” from Col. Towns. It must have been re ceived from somo imprudent friend of the Col’s. But it may be said that tlie 8J resolution was harmless, inasmuch us it forbid any action mi nbol ilion petitions tiller they were received, otlie to lay them on the table. To this wo have replies to make—First, that in the South we object to the reception of abolition petitions nl all—they are upon n subject upon which Congress has no right to legislate, and therefore it is wrong to receive them : and, second, if received, to be laid on the table, a bare majority could at any time mg - amendment. RESOLUTION, Mr. Cone offered the following resolution ; Whereas the warlike preparations and movements in Europe, make it necessary, to preserve peace at homo, or in iho event of war to sustain ou r honor and our country, that we also he prepared— Therefore be it resol red, That ourSeuato rs be *“Ol- and our Representatives i. quested, to urg. j the , peedv ’ her than equipment amt completion of Fort PulasLi, on Cock ave two spur Island, below the city of Savannah 3 and, in the , Sm.ii, event ol necessity, to authorise His Kxce llencv to re ceive into the United Slates service such number of volunteers as be may lluuk capable of -defending the i eeacoapt ol Georgia. b 1 he Senate refused lo take up tin* resolution—yeas j 8. nays 32.

Culh-v Mime n 1 1 • 1 j-n- j. . . in .v time Hackett, Jackson, Martin, Stell, Wlntfieidf and w.l’ call them up, I wish a different disposition ofthem cox. “ VVl1 —if it is right to receive, them und lay them the table, it is right to receive them and’ refer them to a Committee.—Once in the possession of the House, lilt) House can dispose of them us they see proper. To nllow the right of Congress lo receive abolition petitions, is to allow the right of Congress Tuesday, Dec. 23. KESOLUIIIINS. Mr. Hardeman offered a resolution declaring that, as tlie decisions of the Supreme Court to the United Siates contain the most authentic oxpusitirns of the Constitution and laws of the United Slates, they ought legislate upon the abolition ot slavery—if it is l,e |,ubllsl,t ' J under iho aiUlmniy of Congress, and at . ? ... . ■' .. .. .. . tints the public expense, am tbstrmutad in <»h light lo receive them, the right to legislate upon them follows ns uu inevitable consequence. The right may not be exercised—it may, or it may not be, and therefore, it is unsafe for tlie South in yield it in nny shape whatever. All who yield the right in Congress lo receive such petitions, yield the right to legislate upon them, for it would he absurd, foolish and idle lo say that Congress Ims a ri'dit lo receive a petition, and not iho power or right to lake into consideration the propriety ofgrautiim or refusing the tiling petilioued lor. To yield thu re ception of nbulition petitions is to yield tlie whole question. It is fur that reason that* the vole of Col. Towns is obnoxious. It is not that we bo- 1 ?. epubl ,f ... , , ,, • -.j lieve tlie Colonel is in favor of the abolition of sin- j r!,',', ‘ S |' « Massachusetts and the States “--i.™.. «.

Hut it may perhaps be said, ihttt iho writer has placed a wrong construction upon the resolutions. Lei us s c wlmt others thought of the report und resolutions while under consideration in tlw House. •‘.Mr. A. II. Sheppard of North Curoliuu, sutd, the report conceded every thing—it conceded the •emu cipation or slavery in the Disuiet, und that was conceding tiie whole,” Mr. Robertson of Virginia, moved lo recommit the report to the Ceraaiiltce with instructions to re- d>ort u -resolution (lecturing tlmt Congress has no n '.'.or under the Constitution to nbolish slavery in the i)i#tri<Jt,Or in tlio territories, and spoke at lengtlt in opposition lo the report, maintaining that since, [containinga q'mtatiimfrom M7.’i>olk’s message,] it surrendered, in effect, the rights and protection | was iHknn up.
