The Branch city prison.
The benevolent have foi long time desired
reform in the mode of punishment of the
vagrant women committed to the City Prison.
The style in which they lire inside of the
place of confinement hu been to congenial
to the depraved, all being in one room, en
couraged by the vile language of each other,
that they batten on the relishing reoitala of
each other's crimes and on the boastings of
tlteir special offenses. Ko wonder, then,
when discharged from Jail, that they again
steal, for they long to return to the great Va
grant) Exchange; there they meet their as
sociates and agree upon new plans of villainy.
This routine has been permitted so long that
the dissolute olaim quarters thus provided
n s vested right. Now, change this; sepa
rate the parties; give each a olean prison gar
ment; eompel cleanliness of person; give them
daily instruction; put them to wort. This
will bsso disagreeable to them,sourjamiableto
them, that either they will reform, or else leave
town, not returning again to so unpleasant a
place. Council has selected a place to try
the proposed experiment. The residents of

Chiuib MoMicmn, Esq., of this city, who
died in March 1858. By the language of his
will, he declared that It long had been the

taught not only a knowledge of their duties
to their Creator and their fellow-men, but also

extent that the same are now, or may be
hereafter taught In any of the secular colleges,
or universities of the highest grade In the
country, and he accordingly gave, devised,
and bequeathed quite a large real and per
sonal eatate to the city of Cincinnati, for the
purpose of building, establishing and main

General J. B. Clibki, of Missouri, who

HOUSE Mr. Kllgore, of Indiana, explained
and was understood to say that he condemned
as strongly as the gentleman from Missouri
possibly oould, the avowal of suoh sentiments.
He bad never seen the recommendation to
scatter it. His name, however, appeared to a
proposition to publish and circulate a pam
phlet containing matters taken from Helper's
book, together with the remarks made by gen
tleman on slavery.
Mr. Clarke, resuming, foil it to be his duty
to say, If this Government is to be prostituted
and men placed In position, holding such sen
timents, the people ought to know to what a
humiliating position it has come. The Chair
they were now about to fill had been occupied
by Clay, Barbour, Cook, Wlnihrop, gentle
men who had drawn light from the sources of
the Constitution, who bad elevated self-respeot,
and who would not advise treason, murder
and dissolution. He said that he had 'bat
otrcular. In reference to the circulation of the
pamphlet before him
Mr. Clarke B. Cochrane, Interrupting, ut
terly oondemned eaoh sentiments as these
which the gentlemen from Missouri had re
peated. Mr. Palmer said, "Let us have free discus
sion. Our friends on the other side have thrust
the negro before the House. We may as well
finish the discussion and then turn hliu out
as quickly as possible."
Mr. Clarke replied, that the negro never
would have been . thrust upon the House but
for the action of the gentleman's psrty, and
for the advice gentlemen bad given. If gen
tlemen made themselves the equals of the
nogro, the effect would be to drive out an

XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION. [CONCLUSION OF MONDAY'S PROCEEDINGS.] [ TO-DAY'S PROCEEDINGS.]
Wabbinoton, December o. SENATE Mr.
Mason's resolution, offered yesterday, to ap
point a committee to inquire into tho Harper's
Ferry Invasion, came up.
Mr. Trumbull, of 111., said it would receive
bis cordial support. Whenever murder is
committed, let us ascertain who are guilty, and
hold them responsible. He hoped the inves
tigation would be thorough and complete.
He believed it would do good by disabusing
the public mind, especially in the South, of
tne idea that Bucn a movement receives any
countenance or Bupport from any considerable
number of the citiiens of the North. No man,
who is not prepared to destroy the Constitu
tion, subvert the Government and resolve so
olety into its original elements, eould justify
it. No matter what evi Is, either imaginary or
real, exist in the body politic, no one indi
vidual, or twenty out of twenty million,
oould be permitted in his own way, and in
deflanoe of the laws of the land, undertake
to correct them. No government on earth
could subsist if that was allowed. Anarchy
wdd be the consequence. As for the mis-
guraed man who led the insurgents, he had
already expiated on the gallows Bis error and
gone before the final tribunal.
Mr. Trumbull said, let this investigation be
Impartial and thorough. The effeot on the
country would he most salutary, and had a
similar Investigation been Instituted when a
similar transaction occurred in 1845, It would
have been better. The arsenal at Liberty,
Mo., was then broken Into and Ibe public pro
perty taken away. He briefly recapitulated
the facts of that occurrence as stated, by Capt.
Leonard, In eharge there. That, however, was
for the purpose of forcing slavery into Kaunas,
while at Harper'aFerry the effort was to abol
ish slavery. He then offered an amendment
to the resolution, extending inquiry to the
Mr. Mason replied that he would not stand
in the way of the inquiry suggested, but the
very document read contained all the faets
offiolally set forth. If the Senator wanted to
prevent the recurrence of such transactions, he
would not stand in the way of applying the
proper legislation; but now, when four years
had elapsed, and neither that Senator nor those
wno sot with mm nnve asked an investigation,
It Is a little strange to be as anxious to cou
ple these transactions.
The Committee oould not examine both at
once, and therefore, time and money would be
lost by adopting the amendment. He wanted
to know from whenoe resources were derived
for the Harper's Ferry invasion, who supplied
the money, munitions and counsel ? Congress
would not act on the subjoot without offioial
information ; and if it Bhould turn out that
Congress had the power to prevent auoh trans,
actions, it is the duty of the Southern States to
take proper measures for their protection. He
alluded to the remark of Mr. Trumbull respect
ing the shrieks from Kansas not being heard
in Tirglnla, by saying that no shrieks would
be heard from Virginia, happen what may In
tneir political relations with others, tie did
not know what a man's political education
oould be to lead him to use suoh expressions
in reierenoe to tne recent eventa.
Mr. Trumbull answered, that nothing the
Senator might say oould get him to Bpeak dis
respectfully of Virginia or any other State of
the Union. He spoke the term "shriek" as
used in regard to the people of Kansas, but
not witn tne view ot easting ridicule on any
portion of theoountry. Mr. Mason's Impres
sion was that the term oame from the political
associates or Mr. Trumbull. At flrst it was
shrieks for freedom.
Mr. Hale followed, denounoing the Supreme
Court of the United States, and defined his
position generally, in regard to the slavery
Mr. Hunter expressed surprise at the man
ner this resolution had been reoeived. It was
proper in itself and made eminently necessary
by the ciroumstanees of tho recent occurren
ces. The South was not so much startled by
the foray of Brown and bis few followers, but
at the sympathy openly expressed in the
North for him, and at the apparent indiffer
noe of the groat mass at the North at such
manifestations of sympathy.
The Senator from Illinois proposes to turn
tne matter into a party issue, noes ne sup
pose that the South regards the peace and
safety of the community as a party matter
They are loath to beliove such things oan be
treated with Indifference by those bound to
them by ties of oommon government ; but
such Is the oaso It is time they were made
aware of it. Upon suoh an occasion as this,
which has no parallel In the history of the
country, the levity displayed by the Senator
from New Hampshire is like the laugh of the
inebriate at the bed of death.
The South can take oaro of themselves, If
no remedy can be found in the general gov
ernment, let the South know, bo that they ean
take action. Js tnis union to oe used only
stay the arms of States for self defense , and
give no protection against suoh Insurrection!
If there be in truth such alienation of feeling,
and this simple resolution cannot pass without
being smothered by party issues, let us kaow
It at onee.
Mr. Green remarked that the purpose fur
which tbe arms were taken at Liberty was not
to force slavery into Kan.as, not to subvert the
SoYernmont or laws of the United Stale?, bat
to resist the unlawful acts of the Emigrant Aid
Society, which had prevented an execution of
the laws of the Territory. Although an un
lawful act, it was for a giod purpose, and in
order to support law and order. The truth
ought to'go fprth in connection with this mat
tor, and not let it be supposed that it was an
atrocious act like that at Harper's Kerry.
This affair demands the Interposition of the
Federal Government. While tlfb soenes In
Kansas, whether right or wrong, have passed
by, those acts are recorded for posterity to
judge, and let them remain undisturbed.
Mr. Crittenden thought that the amend
ment could do no harm and would only
oooupy a few days more time. He hoped it
would be adopted.
Mr. Wilson said that he should vote for the
resolution and the amendment. When this
intelligence first reached the north It was re
garded merely as a Btrike of worklngmen. On
learning its real oharaoter it was received
almost unanimously with disapprobation and
rngreta; but elections wore pending in New
York and New Jorsey, and one or two leading
papers In New York, for the purpose of afoot
log those elections, made moat violent, false
and Infamous oharges against publlo men and
the masses of the people of the tree States.
HOUSE The House met at noon; Mr.
Clarke's resolution being under consideration.
Mr. Crawford made an Ineffectual motion to
submit a resolution lor the adoption of the one
hour rule, it being evident that after Mr.
Clarke eoncludes his remarks, a reply will be
expected from the other side. It will be re
membered that In the thirty-fourth Congress,
one gentleman occupied the floor for two days,
and hence his proposition.
A resolution was adopted that the dally
hour of meeting be twelve o'olook.
Mr. Olarke caused to be read the list of
thoso who recommended the circulation of Mr.
Helper's book, and also the olroular itself,
stronilv reovatlve of slavery,
Mr. Olarkeoriefly reviewed the prominent
recommendations In Helper's book, strongly
condemning those who signed the circular,

Governor Wise's Message.
Richmond, December (.Both Houses of
the Virginia Legislature were organized to
day. The Govrenor's Message reviews the Harper's
Ferry affair at great length. It speaks of tbe
spirit of fanaticism, and the one idea of the
Abolitionist which hu seemed to madden tbe
whole masses of one entire section of the
country; whloh enters into religion, education,
polities, and prayers, courts of Justice, ana

bers, murderers, and traitors, whom It has
sent to felons graves. Unless the namerioal
majority will cease to violate the confederate
faith and cease to disturb our pace, to de
stroy our lives and property, and to deprive
as ot an protection and redress unaer me
perverted forms and distorted workings of tbe
Union, we mast take up arms. Tne Issue is
too essential to be compromised any more. We
oan not stand such insults and outrages as
these committed at Harper's Berry without
suffering what is even worse than the death of
our cltitens, without suffering dishonor, the
death of a State.
It Is not to be denied that we have many
sound and sincere friends in tho non-slave-bolding
states, but the conservative elements
are passive, while the fanalloal are active ;
the former are fast diminishing while the
latter are increasing with numbers and force.
With regard to the Insurgents, the message
says : It is mockery to call them monomani
acs. The leader himself spurned tbe plea and
it was not put in upon the trials. They were
prompted by the evil spirits of incendiarism
which demoralized numerous hosts behind
them who now sympathized with their deeds
before the world. These men lived without
themselves incurring the risk of their crimes,
and no wonder thoy sympathize with them
even to madness, and that John Brown des
pised the hypooritical cant of their pretence
that he was insane.
