In a receni It-ciure delivered in Uruok

entire abolitien of the office of Vice
President of the Urjii-d t-tatrs was
urged with a good deal of force, Mr.
Dugla-s said :
I am fcr the Abolition of the Vice
Presidency. There in no need of any
extra, ready nt.ide President kept in
the cold wailing to ronie in. No inore
fieed of elcung a Vice President than
there is of eleciir g a second liusd nid
for otir dauj;h'-is in case the first hus
h.uid dies. I would ahtdh the Vne
Presidency and renKjve so thin a veil
as assassination L-lween a man and
ihe tfiiiptitiv p'ace of Pisident tf the
United Siates. A Vice President is a
standing menace lot fie life of the. Prcs
iileul. 1 believe your president will
?it more safe at.d secure when the
shadow of the Vice President erases to
fall upon hiia iu the Pretiden.ial

A UTTIaS: TOO FAST.
Two or ihre days ago the Washing

Judres of ihe Supreme Court had de
cided ili.ii the "iron dad" oath estab
lished by Conyre- for ihe proiecti ui of
ihal body against the possible adum-ion
nf rebels, was unconstitutional, ; and
therefore void. All Copperheaddom and
all Rebeldom rejoiced indecently al thi
uniiouncpiiieri'; wh ch proves to have
be n a little premature. This is the only
raw material out of which ihe sia'.emeni
itiuld have been manufactured: Ai
the commencement of ihe present term
of the Supreme Couii, wver.- from
ihe Ilebel Slates -were permitted io
come in and practice atier taking the
customary oath to support the Federal
Con.-iiuui on The opinion of a ma-
jorny of the Judges that ihey could not
deprive a man of his right previously
acqt.ired to practice in that court in r.e
half of his clients if he would lake an
oath to support the Constitution and
laws. But thi- opinion m no manner
afTecis the right of Congress to pre

On Tuesday last, while the wind
was blowing a gale from the south.-ea.-i.
three men started off in a frail kifT
from the shore al the lower end of tlie
inner harbor of Newport, to rescue a
she"ep which had by some tneans got
adriftt but owing to the gale they were
neither able to reach the sheep or re
turn lo ihe shore, and were fast being
swept off" into rough water, where their
skilT must inevitably have swamped.
In this situation they were discovered
by Mis Ida Lewis, dptirrhter of Cap
tain Hosea Lewis, ueeper of Lime

hou-e boat and put off" to their relief.
