The Old and New Hall of the United
On Wednesday, tho Senatn of the United
Statot romovod from thu old II a!!, which had
been tho scone of to many intellectual con
tests, into tho new. Wo givo a telegraphic
summary of the proceedings of that body,
upon thu interesting occasion :
Tho Senate met at noon in tho old hall,
from which the desks had boon removed,
but a supply of cane boimmuj chairs had
been provided for their accommodation.
The galleries and floor wore crowded not
withstanding the falling snow, it having been
understood thut tho Vice President, Mr.
Crittenden, and others would speak.
Thu proceedings as usual opened with
prayer mid tlio reading of the Journal, after
winch Mr. Stuart of Mich , mured thut as
many ladies wuro enprovided with teats in
tho cutlery, would bu admitted to the tlnor.
Mr !l.:mliii, of Mo, objected to tho
ground that tho admission of ladies would
embarrass thu Legislative business, conse
quently tho Indies wuro not admitted,
Mr. Davis, of Miss., submitted the roport
of tho Cnnimiltuo stating that tho new
Chamber was ready.
Mr. Crittenden moved tho adoption of tho
roport. The parting from the chamber he
thought wus uu event of much solemnity.
Many associations many of them pleasant

The Slave Trade in the South.
That thu trudo in slaves Irotn thu African
coast is revived in our country thero seems
to bo little doubt. The Savannah Republi
can states the fact without reserve. The
blacks brought in the yacht Wanderer from
Ati ica have hueii landed, carried off into the
interior, and dispersed among the planta
tions, where, doubtless, the government will
never find them. The sumo method has
been udoptod hero as in Cuba ; a clmidos
tino approach to the coast, a lauding effect
ed at siiinii itnt'roqiiiiiiiuil spot, anil a r.pid
partition of the naves among dealers, who
uro notified beforehand, and are ready with
securo plnces for bestowing the human cur
go. Our governinent.uf'ter all this has been
accomplished, sends its agents and arrusts
three men, who will probably escape con
viction, us most rnguos do, aud will then be
ready fur another speculation in African
negroos, which find a much butter market
here than in Cuba.
All ihis is precisely what might have boon
expected. Southern politicians havo begun
lo clamor fur the reopening of the African
slave trade Southern politicians are con
lending that Congress hut no authority to
make laws prohibiting or restraining that

Troubles in Southern Kansas.
The St. Louis Democrat has a letter
Irotn Ossiwatomie, of Dec. 23, which
gives its version of the lute Fort Scott
troubles as follows :
During the last few months there lias
been contiued in Fort Scott, a young man
by the mime of Ben Rice, for some of bia
Jay-hawking peccadiloes during the past
cnuu. nn menus nau uejtrminea to
release him, and accordingly lam Thurs
day evening, the 16th inst., a large num
ber of his pattisans made their appeal ance
at Kirt Scott, demanded hi release, which
being reluxed, the door of the prison was
smashed in, his chuius, by which he was
fastened to the floor, were chopped loose
witu an axe, ana men a chisel was pro
cured, with which his chains were cut
loose from his limbs, and he. with his
manacles flung over bis shoulders, was
paraded oil' lor home. - During the affair
a Mr. John Little was killed by a Shape's
ime unii, Buimig mm in uie lorehead,
tearing it 0)en and leaving htm a most
horrid and bloody spectacle. Several
other allots wore tired, and two of the at
tacking party wero wounded, and a store
pillaged ol its oontents.whicu were carried
oil by the assailants.
One story bat it, that Mr. Little was a
United States Marshal, or a deputy, and
that he was killed while defending the
prison; another report is thut he was in
his store when killed, and that a sister and
his affianced wife were by him, or in an
adjoining room, screaming for his safety.
Il ll is true that he was not defending the
prison, il will be readily seen that the na
ture of the offy nee is changed. All ac

The Tragic End of a Murderer!
In June last, at Columbus, Conrad
Siebuld stabbed Henry Korrell with a
large butcher knife in the region of tho
heart, and John Fronenbcrger struck the
victim of ihefr violence on the bend with
a stone. I lie murder was an unprovoked
one on the part of Korrell. Hit murder
ers have been in the Franklin cptmty jail
awaiting trial, and a week ago Sunday
they escaped with eight other prisoners.
Siebold remained in the vicinity of Co
lumbus, and on the 1st was discovered
and pursued by three police officers. He
ran across a field, and when the officers
came nertr he turned upon, and with pis
tol in each hand held them at ly, threat
ening lo kill the first nvin who attempted,
the officers firing several sho t from small
pistols at him without eirect. The chase
lasted some hours, a number of people
joined in it, and the bloody finale is thus
given by the Statesman :
Seibold finally got on the track of the
Central Ohio Kailioatl, aud took refuge in
the first bridge over Alum Creek, about
three miles eatl of this city. Seibold
went ever to the east side of bridge, slop
ped and swore he would kill the first-man
who attempted to cross the bridge, at the
same time pointing his coi ked pistols at
the officers, who attempted lo persuade
him to lay down bis arms and submit,
promising lo treat him kindly and using
every possible argument. Seibold told
them he would give them twicethe amount
of the reward il they would let him go,
and that he would never be taken alive.
Jlalf an hour was spent in thui parleying,
when the officers sent to a neighboring
(arm house and procured a loaded rifle,
with which they hoped lo intimidate him.
Bui the dcHprratu man was not lo be in
timidated. Officer Whito took the title,
aud called upon him to surrender, saying

M.irderuus Assault. Two despera
does in Cheri T Valley, assaulted Dr. Les
lie, also of that lowi.ship, ()n iho evening
of the 2-Itii iust., with murderous intent.
The circumstances as we learn them are
these : The doctor was traveling on one I
of the streets in his sulky, and was met
ny ono oicL'iughlin and amther confeder
ate who engaged him in some personal
conversation, and while thus engaged one
of the men stepped behind the doctor and
dealt him a blow with a heavy club, aim
ing at his head but which fell on his shoul
der. The doctor received one or (wo se
vere blows when he jumped from the sul
ky and engaged in his own defense, his
horse at the same time becoming (l ighten
ed ran off. The doctor was pretty severe
ly handled, and so stunned that he lost
conscousness lor a time; but on recover
ing found himself without hat and over
coat, the ruffians having fled. Our infor
mant says a hundred men of Cherrv Val.
ley turned out in search of the ruffi ins,
and had succeeded in arresting ihem.
The result of the examination we have not
learned. A gang of desperadoes have
long been a source of annoyance to the
law and order citizens of Cherry Valley,
and no doubt this murderous assault was
planned In reveuL'c for the Doctor' . m.
cieut and resolute efforts lo rid that c m
munity of the rascals. At the last term
ol Court one of these was arraigned for
crime, and another of the gang perjured
himself and was sent to the penitentiary.
