Comtakt C ills BoMETniKO to 8ay. Com
pany C, Washington Light Infautry, assembled
nt their armory on Monday evening, the -17th
instant. Tho endorsement of certain resolu
tions previously adopted 4Vompanies A and
B, of the battalion, expressive of their deter
mination " to stand by tho stars and stripes so
long as a shred remained," was proposed, upon
which a discussion arose, when they wero laid
on the table by an overwhelming vote, because
a clauso in the Constitution of the company pro
hibits any political discussion, and also be
cause the true interests and prosperity of the
company demand that said clause of the Con
stitution should be observed, and for the further
and more potent reason, that said resolutions
wero inappropriate under the existing affairs
of the nation.
Personal. Capt. Floyd Jones and A. Pi
per, U. S. A., are at VVillards'.
lion. James A. Stewart, Col. Mercer, and
Major T. J. Hall, of Maryland, are at the Na

afternoon, the funeral services of the lamented
young clergyman, Wentworth L. Childs, took
Dlace from St. John's Church, in the presence
of the officers and parishioners of St. Albans, of
which he was rector, and a large assemblage of
Episcopal ministers ana members generally
of Washington, Georgetown, and neighboring
Maryland. The impressive services of the Prot
estant Episcopal Church were conducted by
the Rev. Dr. Smith Pyne, rector of St. John's,
after which the funeral procession proceeded to
Rock Creek Cemetery.
A Burglar Killed. On Monday night, Mr.
William Jones, who resides near Four-and a
half street, on the Island, heard some one en
deavoring to force nn entrance into his resi
dence, lie instantly seized a gun, but, finding
that it was unloaded, he abandoned that, and
took up a stick, and went down stairs. As he
reached the foot of the stairs, he found that
the burglar had succeeded in hoisting a window.
As soon as the latter heard Mr. Joues coming
towards him, he tried to escape, when Mr.
Jones struck him with the stick several times
upon tho head. lie was then arrested, and
taken to the Central Guardhouse.
Yesterday morning, the prisoner, whose
name is Joseph Sayroke, was brought out for
a hearing, on a charge of burglary.
When the cell was oponed, a shocking spec
tacle presented itself to the eye, a large pool of
blood being npon the floor, resulting from the
wounds in his head. The trial was then had,
when the facts above stated were elicited. Dr.
Toner was sent for, who administered alt the
relief he was able ; but soon after the trial, and
before he was taken to jail, to which ho had
been sentenced by Justice Donn, Sayroke died,
and was laid out in the Guardhouse.
It appears that this Sayroke is the same per
son that attempted to commit suicide a year or
two ego, by cutting bis throat with a butcher
knife, nearly severing the windpipe.
He is a German, and was formerly a profes
During the morning, jury of inquest was held
by the Coroner, which fully exonerated Jones,
who was accordingly discharged,
"TiieTJnioh Forever." Yesterday morn
ing a beautiful (lag, " the stars -and stripes,"
was hoisted upon the staffover the Perseverance
engine-house, in Centre Market Space, and with
it a streamer, upon which was imprinted, in
legible charaters, " The Union Forever." The
market being full, they attracted much atten

dreds. The flag was elevated by order of the
company, which passed a resolution to this ef
fect at a recent meeting.
The Franklin Fire Company, which, on the
day before yesterday, bad their flag at half

of our Union hereafter shine brighter than ever.
Public Schools. Examinations of candi
dates for teaching in our public schools wero

Lincoln, of Boston, and a large number of the
members of tbe Boston city councils, with their
ladies, arrived here the other uight, and put up
at Willards'. Their visit is partly for pleasure,
and partly to examine into our mode of doing
up corporation affairs. If Ibey had visited our

There is no othor Republican paper In tbe

such a paper an important sphere of useful ef

Resolved, That we, the delegated representa
tives of tho Republican Electors of tbe United
States, in Convention assembled, In discharge
of the duty we owe to our constituents and our
country, unite in the following declarations :
First. That the history of the nation daring
the last four years has fully established the pro
priety and necessity of the organisation and per
petuation of the Republican party, and that the
causes which called It Into existence are perma
nent In' their nature, and now, more than ever
before, demand its peaceful and constitutional
Second. That the maintenance of the principles
promulgated In the Declaration of Independence,
and embodied In the Federal Constitution, " that
all men are created equal ; that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain unalienable rights;
that among these are life, liberty, and the pur
suit of happiness that to secure these rights,
Governments are Instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from theconsentofthegoverned,"
Is essential to the preservation of our republican
Institutions; and that the Federal Constitution,
the rights of the States, and the Union of the
Statos, must and shall be preserved.
Third. That to the Union of the States this
nation owes its unprecedented Increase In popu
lation ; Its surprising development of material
resources ; Its rapid augmentation of wealth ;
Its happiness at home and Its honor abroad; and
we bold In abhorrence all schemes for disunion,
come from whatever source they may ; and we
congratulate the country that no Republican
member of Congress has uttered or countenanced
a threat of disunion, so often made by Demo
cratic members without rebuke and with ap
plause from their political ssociates ; and we
denounce those threats of disunion, In case of
a popular overthrow of their ascendency, as de
nying the vital principles of a free Government,
and as an avowal of contemplated treason, which
It is the Imperative duty of an indignant people
sternly to rebuke and forever silence.
Fourth. That the maintenance inviolate of
the rights of the States, and especially the right
of each State to order and control its own do
mestic Institutions, according to its own judg
ment exclusively, Is essential to that balance of
power on which the perfection and endurance of
our political fabric depends ; and we denounce
the lawless Invasion by armed force of the soil
of any State or Territory, no matter under what
pretext, as among the gravest or crimes.
Fifth. That the present Democratic Adminis
tration has far exceeded our worst apprehensions
in its measureless subserviency to the exactions
of a sectional Interest, as especially evidenced
In Its desperate exertions to force tbe infamous
Lecompton Constitution upon the protesting peo
ple of Kansas in construing the personal rela
tion between master and servant to involve an
unqualified property in persons In its attempted
enforcement every where, on land and sea, through
the intervention of Congress and of tbe Federal
courts, 01 tne extreme pretensions or a purely lo
cal interest, and in its general and unvarying abuse
of tbe power intrusted to it by a confiding people.
Sixth. That the people justly view with alarm
the reckless extravagance which pervades every
department of the Federal Government; that a
return to rigid economy and accountability Is In
dispensable to arrest the systematic plunder of tbe
public Treasury by favored partisans; while the
recent startling developments of frauds and cor
ruptions at the Federal metropolis show that an
entire change of Administration is Imperatively
Seventh. That the new dogma that the Consti
tutioa of its own force carries slavery Into any
or all of the Territories of tbe United States, Is a
dangerous political heresy, at variance with the
explicit provisions of that Instrument Itself, with
cotemporaneous exposition, and with legislative
and judicial precedent; is revolutionary in its
tendency, and subversive of the peace and har
mony of the country.
Eighth. That the normal condition of all the
territory of the United States Is that of Freedom ;
that as our republican fathers, when they bad
abolished slavery in all our national territory,
ordained that " no person should be deprived of
lire, liberty, or property, without due process of
law," It becomes our duty, by legislation, when
ever such legislation is necessary, to maintain
this provision of tbe Constitution against all at
tempts to violate It; and we deny the authority
of Congress, of a Territorial Legislature, or of
any individuals, to give legal existence to sla
very In any Territory of the United States.
Ninth. That we brand the recent reopening of
the African slave trade, under the cover of our
national flag, aided by perversions of judicial
power, as a crime against humanity, and a burning
shame to our country and age ; and we call upon
Congress to take prompt and efficient measures
for the total and final suppression of that exe
Tenth. That in tbe recent vetoes by their Fed
eral Governors of the acts of the Legislatures
of Kansas and Nebraska, prohibiting slavery in
those Territories, we rind a practical illustration
of the boasted Democratic principle of non-intervention
and popular sovereignty embodied in
tbe Kansas-Nebraska bill, and a demonstration
of tbe deception and fraud involved therein.
Eleventh. That Kansas should of right be Im
mediately admitted as a State under the Consti
tution recently formed and adopted by her people,
and accepted by the House of Representatives.
Twelfth. That while providing revenue for the
support of the General Government by duties
upon imports, Bound policy requires such an ad
justment of these imposts as ts encourage the de
velopment of the industrial interests of the whole
country ; and we commend that policy of nation
al exchanges, which secures to tbe working men
liberal wages, to agriculture remunerating prices,
to mechanics and manufacturers an adequate
reward for their skill, labor, and enterprise, and
to the nation commercial prosperity and Inde
pendence. Thirteenth. That we protest against any sale
or alienation to others of the public lands beid
by actual settlers, and against any view of the
free homestead policy which regards the settlers
as paupers or supplicants for public bounty ; and
wo demand tbe passage by Congress of the com-
Slete and satisfactory homestead measure which
as already passed the House.
Fourteenth. That the Republican party is op
posed to any change in our naturalisation laws,
or any State legislation by which tbe rights of
citizenship hitherto accorded to immigrants from
foreign lands shall be abridged or impaired ; and
In favor of giving a full and efficient protection
to the rights of all classes of citizens, whether
nrtlve or naturalized, botb at home and abroad.
Fif'.eirth That appropriations by Congress
