Although his sentiments were well understood by his fellow.citi7.ens who cast their votes for him at the last election, there has been since such a whirl in the political maelstrom that they might either , tear that bis own position had been changed, or possibly they themselves niigh have been unable to withstand the might) efforts made to draw them into tht w hi 1 I iV either event, it is proper and 1,oll??ble that he, as their representative, ?h 1 nuke open and frank avowals in ; .icj o the political movements which ,, take place in his State and d,^!i,f nct to should consider it a most ignoble act win the support <fr endorsement f an> , man bv the least concealment or diet ... Z, ">? ?""w ?? ,iof * T" i ? us, l>y liyi?K-rlsj- and fraud, to i lwat him of his sentiments, , Mr Harris then continued as follows . then, sir, declare that in principle now , .stand as f st<*?d before the war ; as I stood after war was declared*, as 1 stood m the last Congress, when 1 received its crown of censure ; as I stood in prison and beiori , that infernal instrument of tyranny, a eonrt .martial. Awl as I atand in i-rimu |,lc so will 1 stand in practice whenom occasion may require. When 1 indicate that there has been no change in my principles, this House and! this countrv, possiidy ? tor the avowal o them has been attended by an unexpected notoriety ? may infer what my jiosition now is. I am an old line Democrat, ami believe in the doctrine of secession. I believe that the several States of this I nion have a right to separate from it, each act - , inn for itself. 1 believe that abuses and usurpations had been practiced and threatened to so great an extent by their asso- ? c'utesand partners in this governmental compact that the southern States were .|iistilicd in going ofit ; and, sir, 1 further believe, by their ordinance of secession, that ' thev did go out, and thcn*?y became to . ! this Union foreign States. These convic- , tions I cannot change, and I do not expect , will ever be removed ; 1 will most assured- 1 |\ proclaim them and stand by them as j long as a single citizen of the Confederate States is in chains or subject to penalty lor asserting them. There is no political or personal consideration which would prompt i me to such a desertion. As the tjglit ol secession is the only thing that secures them from the charge of treason, mv voice ' shall ever accord with my convictions, and never join in that verdict against them. 1 should consider myself as assuming a most , infamous position if 1 did. AN hat, wr, 1 that helieve them right; I, that would have joined them if the sovereign State of Man land had said so, to desert them now in their utmost need, when 1 can legitimately give them such protection as it is in my power honestly to give ? Ne\ei . In the course of his remarks the speaker said he was adverse to the President's specific policv of reconstructing this Union. Ill his view the southern seceded States have no right to Representatives on this t|.H?r or in the Senate, and by his vote he had heretofore invariably rejected every application which has been made by any person claiming such a right ; and not onl\ j did he believe that they have no right in their present position to send Senators and Representatives here, but he did not think they have the right to furnish us with a President or Vice-President, although there are many, here and elsewhere, who, while agreeing with him that these States areout of tJic Union and not entitled t<? representation any where, have been so fraternal in their feelings, and so magnanimous in their conduct, as to go before the line in order I to obtain *t lie services of the gentleman , who at present tills the Executive chair of j the United States. Being a citizen of se- ] ceded and unreconstructed Tennessee, lie is, as also upon their theory, only President tie f ado, forced uptii the country by their votes, attended by that very e fleet in e implement, their bayonets. The speaker argued that the southern States could only be admitted by act ot Congress and with the assent ol the people, and he never would vote to admit them so long as tho odious test oath remained on the statute book. , Referring to the secession ol the southern States, the speaker said : It was not the Constitution they fell out with, but the perversion of it by their Northern associates, and their persistent designs to violate and destroy important rights winch , were secured by that iiwtruinent. Ihose rights have been destroyed, and call ne\ci be a source of discord between the north and the south. Slavery has been abolished, and the seceded States have acquiesced in it ; and the negro is placed in the position which you desired him to have when vou provoked the war. It agonized ) ou to think that he should be subjected to compulsory and uncompensated labor, and your agon v has been removed, Ihe idea of the free white northerner working by the side of or in view of a negro slave m the Territories of the Union, which seemed to horrify you, can now* have no place i in your minds, and your people and the free negro can mingle together, both socially and politically, in a manner to suit vour tastes. This is the full extent o your expressed desire; and why, when you have all you desired when the war "broke out, do you now* throw obstacles in the way of reunion ( Vou even professed to go to war for the Union, and now, when free negroism is obtained and reunion is offered, you refuse it, and decide it to be highly important to use the negro in vanous other phases for the purpose ol enabling you still further and still longer to oppress your brethren of the south. j You wish to use him as a lever, in order to increase and preserve your overgrown political power and diminish that of the south, without, in the least, affecting au\ improvement in the condition of your pretended pet. You know your proposed amendment to the Constitution cannot be adopted if the southern States vote against it, and 1 think you must believe ^ that it will never receive their assent. You win never hope for such a result, and thev would be slaves should they aid in bunging it about. They will reject, with scorn, the terms of your proposed amnesty, and will await awhile the caliu and considerate aetiou of the people of this country to aid them again in honorably becoming members of this Union. You must answer to your people why it is. What is to be gained, under the circumstances, l>y keeping those out whom you afe unwilling shall Stay out, and who are willing to come in? You will certainly not try to humbug your constituents by pretending o any fear of tho physical strength ot the south. The Confederacy has not uudcr its control a single cannon, a single musket, or a single round of ammunition. Referring to the majority in the House, the speaker said they were bent on schemes whicn seem to contain nothing but the elements of mischief and revenge, leading to a continued and indefinite separation ot the Union, and aimiug at tlfte degradation of the white people of the south. 1 his last you will not, and I say it in the name of the American people, you shall not accomplish. But there is something iu the spirit of tho southern people which will thwart your designs. If they have lowered tho standard of their Confederacy, they have not lowered the standard of their pride--a becoming pride in the estimation of an honorable enemy. The southerner has around him, without ?pooklug of the merits of the

late contPRt, tokens of the endurance, con- 1 rage, and prowess of hi* people. Sad spec. Ucle though it be, it tfill not diminish his toue that he can on his own noil walk over the graves of nearly three hundred thou, wind of his courageous enemies : and ?? Rtiindh g on fh* Tank#?'? Kr**".,, lie will not ile?in hitn*?if a ?u*vo. The schemes l?y which you will bring about some of the results I have alluded to arc now before Congress and the country. You twist and turn, and go through all the contortions of a seri>ent, in order to make the negroes the fellow-citizen# and equals of the white man, and yet you are nut .satisfied that yon can do it. In the Civil Right* bill you boldly declared them to be citizens of the United States. I admired the boldness of the declaration, because it was known to come in direet j conflict with the highest judicial authority in this country, nnd which rendered such a congressional declaration perfectly null and void. The amendment of the Constitution now submitted to the country, and doubtfully reiterating the fact of negro citizenship, and otherwise in an equivocal manner struggling to bring about an equality of the races, will be spurned IVom their presence by the southern States ? and, thank Heaven, there are southern States enough to make southern contempt for it effectual. It will hardly prove an annoyance. The States will still retain control, and govern in their own way, that portion of their population without leave asked of the United States. Mr. Harris continued at some length, and concluded by arguing that the leaders of the rebellion were not guilty of treason, for the reason that secession, he asserted, was a right reserved to the States under the Constit ut ion . Mr. Le Blond, of Ohio, .said that as he understood the gentleman from Maryland, lie intended to be understood as maintaining tiie right of the southern States to go out of the Union. He would ask him if he recognized them as out of the Union, and that they had the constitutional riglht to go out. Mr. Harris. ? Yes, I mean that they had the right to go out of the Union. Tlio I'eiiiaoH? Trial of the Prisoner* in Canada Postponed. Toiionto, June 13. ? Strenuous efforts are being made to procure the release of Lums. den, the Episcopal clergyman who was taken prisoner at Fort Erie. The authorities assert they have strong evidence im- ! plicating him with Fenianism, and peremptorily refuse to entertain the idea of letting him go. , The prisoners will not be brought up for trial until the excitement shall have com1 pletely subsided. Montreal, June 13. ? Instructions as to the disposal of the Fenians are expected from Ottawa witliiu a very few days. The returning troops are to be received with a grand and costly civic ovation. Tohonto, C. \V., June If. ? It is not decided whether the Fenian prisoners will be tried by the civil or military court. Some of the Ministry favor leniency whilst others think that an example should be made. General A. McCook, of Ohio, while visiting the Canada side at Niagara Falls yesterday was arrested by some Canadian volunteers guarding the suspension bridge. On proving his identity he was released with many apologies by the commanding ollicer. WASHINGTON ITEMS. THE PRESIDENT ORDERS THE RELEASE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS. I believe I am safe in saying that the President has written the order for the release of Jefferson Davison parole, and that it will be immediately sent to General Miles. The President announced his intention to do this to the Cabinet on the 8th instant. But he was aware at the time that there was an effort being made, not by the counsel of Mr. Davis, but by Horace Greeley and several other influential members of the Republican party, to get the prisoner admitted to bail. He knew that this application would be referred by "Judge" Underwood to Chief Justice Chase, if, indeed, it would not be made directly to the latter. He desired to wait, therefore, to see what action the Chief Justice would take in the matter. But now that the application to admit the prisoner to bail has been refused; and now that the trial has been postponed nominally till October, really till December, the President is not willing to take the responsibility of keeping Jefferson Davis in prison any longer. It is no secret to those who are behind the scenes, that there never has been any purpose on the part of the Radicals who control matters here, or on the part of the Chief Justice, or on the part of the Attorney-General, to have Mr. Davis tried in the civil courts. They know too well that the result of such a trial would be a full and honorable acquittal. Hence the various obstacles which have been thrown in the way of a trial for many months past. Hence the recent postponement of the trial, under the most flimsy pretexts, till October.- Washington Correspondence New York News. We give the above for what it is worth. We have little faith in the truth of the statement that Mr. Davis is to be released at once. BAIL FOft MR. DAVIS. A wealthy Baltimorcan, writing to a friend here, says that bail to the amount of two million dollars can be procured for Jeff. Davis in that city on five hours' notice ; already twenty-five thousand dollars haye been quietly subscribed there towards defraying the expenses of his trial, and that a hundred thousand more can be raised if necessary. T11K CASE OF 8EMMES. No further progress has been made in the case of Semmcs, and he feels like giving up. The difficulty with him was that he was too great an oU'ender. Spkc tlatioxs upon Cholera. ? Dr. Swan, of Providence, has published a communication in the Boston Medical Journal, in which he expresses the opinion .that the cholera, in its present development in Europe, is in many respects unlike the epidemic of former years. Though severe in some places, it has not been so wide-spread and generally prevalent ; it did not continue to show itself through the winter in England and France as in the winters of 1848 and 1853 ; as the spring opens it has not appeared in England, and has not appeared so generally in emigrant vessels as in those years. If it does obtain a foothold at all in this couu. try, he believes it will be to a limited extent only, and will not be severe except where the local causes arc unusually bad. The Crops. ? In New England the crops are generally reported good ; hay will be abundant, and the fruit yield millions of dollars in advance of last year. In the south the general report is that the crops will turn out well, although in some quarters excessive rains are complained of. The wheat throughout Georgia has been harvested, and although the crop is by no means excellent, it turns out better than was anticipated some time ago. Along the lower Mississippi frequent crevasses have caused great destruction. In southern Illi. nois the wheat crop is said to be a failure, but corn is promising well. In Ohio and Indiana the wheat promises very badly ; but in Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, it is excellent. In Maryland and Pennsylvania it is only moderate. Ax Impossibility.?

A committee was appointed to investigate the facts of Mr. Rousseau's assault on Mr. Grinnell ; to report the same, with resolutions looking to the vindication of the dignity of the House and the protection of members. Mr. Bingham submitted a concurrent resolution, requesting the President to inform forthwith the governors of the States of the passage by 1 Congress of the proposed constitutional , amendment, so that the Legislatures may act on it at onco. The resolution was objected to by Mr. j Le Blond. Some remarks followed, which led to a decision by the Speaker that the joint resolution did not have to be submitI ted to the President for his signature. After some debate on the special order, ; viz: tlie bill restoring the southern States to political privileges, the House adjourned. [Mr. Rousseau will possibly have to walk the plank.
