Salmon P. Chase, U. S. Senator Elect.
Tbo Stat of Ohio bai given Governor Oh as
another syidsnoa of hat estimate of hit worth,
by restoring him to offiolal position. As Got
ernor, bs adorned hi oOoe. At Senator of
the United SUte he was the repreMntatire of
the political sentiment of his" State, fir a
very large majority of Totas jirsn in the Gen
eral Alterably Tsiterday, he wu eleoted for
the leoond time United States Senator from
Ohio. Mr. Chase M emphatically a man to
serve in publio station. . This we can say" of
him without having any thing to say of his
politics. We beliere him to be a conservative
free-soil politician. , He was a student at law
at Annapolis, ML, and wu at one time in the
law office, at Washington City, of the United
States District Attorney, the celebrated Wm.
Wirt.
Mr. Emerson, the Thinker and Lecturer.
This favorite of cultured people of Cincin
nati lectured with success last night, and do
signs to lecture on "Saceets," at the First Con
gregational or Unitarian Church, to-night.
The man oomes round at the light time to
magnetise and idealise men and women who
are much engaged in many things, and diverts
their mental activities toward those manners
whioh are more potent on character than the
laws. The feast of Candlemas was observed
by many a silent votary who came to have his
farthing rush-light blessed with a lighting up
from the toroh of this great illuminator. II
lamlnees, in early church times, at the cere
mony of baptism received a lighted taper, as a
symbol of the faith and graoe they had re-
csived by that sacrament So with those who
partake of the lecturer's literary banquet each
bears away a lighter heart and enlightened
mind from such communions.
The "Helpers" to Make a Speaker.
Mr. Clark, of Mo., introduced a resolution,
eight weeks ago, in the unorganized House,
that no one who indorsed Helper's Book
ought to be chosen the presidios- officer. This
protracted the choice of Speaker; but, in a
round-about-way, have not the candidates of
the three parties indorsed tha indnm of
Helper's Compendium? Mr." MeCIeraand, ef
Illinois, indorsed Mr. Smith, of North Caro
lina, by giving him his rote. Mr. Smith gave
his vote to Mr. Briggs, of New York Mr.
Briggs indorsed Mr. Pennington by making
him Speaker, and Mr. Pennington indorsed
Mr. Sherman, and Mr. Sherman was the In
dorser of "Helper." Have not the candidates
all been helpers to make the Speaker? Have
not all the members of Congress in this way
indorsed the Helper book, for all have in
dorsed the indorsers. This is one of the odd
. things of politics.
Good Percentage.
We have heard the remark that rich men
can't spare their money to build for the pub
lie, while they lire, a public edifice for
benevolent purpose. So far as making money
isconoerned, arloh maneould save at least
25 per eent. of the amount he leaves in his
will, by being willing to build and superintend
the work himself. A merchant could honor
his name and evince his sagacity best by
orecting a Merchants' Exchange and Young
Men's Mercantile Library Association while
he lives, than to defer its erection from funds
left by devise. Mr. McMicken might have
had hit orphan schools and university in op
eration, if he had net delayed it onto lawyers
and relatives could quarrel over the money he
had bequeathed.
It should be the spirit of all who wish to do
good, to do that good in their daily life and
conversation.

"A Minute Man."
There is to be a monument erected at Lex
ington, Mass., capping which is to be a figure
of "a minute man.J flnoh a man represents
those who rushed with the accoutrements of a
huntermusket-pouch and powder-horn to
the defense of the colonies against the Red
coats at Lexington Green, April 19, 1775. All
those in favor of contributing dimes and dol
lars to bnild this monument say aye. An as
sociation hai been formed to raise the funds
and do the work, Edward Everett is Presi
dent, Charles 0. Whitmore, of Boston, is
Treasurer, and every true-hearted American
may and ought to be a stockholder, if build
ing monuments be at all in order. We believe
in ereotinga monument more enduring than
brass, and firmer than marble, in the adaman
tine virtues of every true American. A noted
priest was rebuked by one of his dram-selling
parishoners, for his eloquent advocacy of the
cause of temperance. The father turned to
the audience and said: "If yon will be eating
and drinking and goiag your own road, you
might as well spend your Hps with Barney
Coyle as any ether man." We say, if monu
ments are to be built, aid the one to honor the
heroes of the first battle of the Revolutionary
The Millennium.
One of the guests, after witnessing the ev
idences of fraternity between differing men of
different sections, and of the conoord and am
ity evinoed with soon a bounteous flow of
splrita at the "citisens"' grand re-union in this

WASHINGTON, February 2.
SENATE. Susdry communications were
received irem the Xxeeutive Department
On motion of Mr. Gwln it was resolved that
on aad after Monday next the Senate meet at
twelve o'clock.
Mr. Gwln gave notice that on Monday he
would move to go en with the calendar..1
The first bill upon the calendar was for the
construction of a railroad to the raeino, and
he desired to take that up.
- Mr. Sumner introduced a resolution, request
ing the Committee on Commerce to inquire
into me sxpeuiency or repealing the Hospital
tax en seamen, and abolishing the present svt-
viiu oi marine nospitais. Adopted.
Mr. Wigfell gave notice of a bill for a rail
road and telegraph between the Atlantic
States and California.
Mr. Lane offered a resolution insturuoting
the Committee on Naval Affairs to inquire
Into the expediency of establishing a naval
station on Poget's Sound. Adopted.
Mr. Davis introduced a series of resolutions
relating to the obligations imposed on the
States by the Constitution, to protect the
rights of the people in the Territories, Ao.
Mr. Davis said he referred to these resolu
tions for the purpose of having a vote
taken on them separately. He would be glad
it they could be adopted without debate and
with unanimity. Ordered to be printed and
made the special order for Wednesday at one
P.M. I ' .:!. . , '
t Mr. Wilson introduced a bill appropriating
a million acres of the public lands for the bene
fit of the free schools of the District of Colum
bia. -
Mr. Poster Introduced a resolution of Inquiry
whether the appropriation for tho new post
office in New York is now in force, and whether
further legislation Is necessary. Adopted.
Mi1. Brown's resolutions were taken up.
Mr. Fitch discussed the Territorial question.
He thought the new doctrine of popular
sovereignty a departure from the views of the
founders of the Government. lie defended
the course of the Democratic Senators in dis
placing Mr. Douglas from the Chairmanship
of the Committee on : Territories. Mr. Fitoh
then examined the Dred Scott Decision, con
tending that it sustained the views he had ad
vanced. He also claimed that thoy were
supported by the Cincinnati Platform. He
thought these were points, however, on which
Democrats differ without feeling that they
were judioial, not legislative questions.
Mr. Douglas said4nat it was not necessary
at this time to go into any controversy with
the gentleman from Indiana. : He might have
used these arguments with more propriety
in his own State bofore the meeting of the late
Democratic Convention.
Mr. Fitch replied that the action of that
Convention might add to the Senator's vote at
Charleston, but according to the rules govern
ing former Conventions, it did not give him
votes enough to secure his nomination. Did
he then expect to transfer or sell them to
somebody else?
Air. uougias said teat tno action oi ths re
cent Convention showed that the Democrats of
Indiana could not be bought.
Mr. Brown wished to press a vote on the
resolution, but yielded to a motion to post
pone, and after an executive session the Son-
ate adjourned.
Trial of Stephens.
CnaiLSSTOWH. Vi.. February 2. The town
is thronged to-day to witness the proceedings
of the trial of Stephens, one of the 'Harper's
Ferry conspirators.
At eleven o'clock the Court opened, Judge
John Kenny, of Rockingham, presiding, Judge
Parker being engaged la holding the regular
wwn ieurc in nampeuiro iounty.
The Grand Jury, of whiob R. V. Shirley is
foreman, was sworn.
The J udge delivered his charge, and, in re
ferring to the Harper's Ferry invasion, ssid:
"It is known to you, end is now a part of
the history of the country, that on the nieht
of the 10th of Ootober last a band of traitors,
murderers and Incendiaries, stealthily made a
descent on the soil of Virginia in the oountv
of Jefferson, and wantonly murdered several
of our citizens and people with the design to
incite our slaves to revolt, and to subvert our
Government. Some of these desperadoes, and
others, the dupes of designing cowards, were
captured and punished according to their
deserts; but there are some engaged, or sup
posed tq.have been engaged in this foray who
nave not as yet been apprehended, and others
who are believed to have been actively en
gaged in this tragedy, but who are not yet
known to the publie.
It will be your duty, and I believe your
pleasure also, to Inquire who wae guilty of
polluting our soil and attempting to dishonor
the sovereignty of Virginia, I deem it un
necessary for me to recommend you to con
duct your inquiries with that coolness, justice
and good sense which has distinguished your
predecessors in their inquisition, and which
has met the approbation of the good and pa
triotic citizens of our eommon oountry. So
conduct your inquiries that the bright escut
cheon of your beloved State shall not be
dimmed by passion or groundless suspicion,
and also let them be conducted without fear,
favor or affection as you may elioit the truth,
the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
The jury then retired to their roomi and the
witnesses in the esse of the Commonwealth et.
Aaron D. Stephens, were sent up.
Before the jury retired, Mr. Harding, Dis
trict Attorney, made an address to them.
After an absenoe of an hour, they returned
with a bill against Stephens, charging him
with murder and treason, and conspiring with
slaves to create a rebellion.
The witnesses in the case of the Common
wealth vi. Hazlett were then sent up, and an
Indiotment of the same character was shortly
afterward returned against him.
' The work of empannelling the jory in the
ease of Stephens was postponed until to-morrow,
in order to allow counsel time to examine
the indictment against him. Stephens and
Hazlett will be defended by Mr. Bennett; the
Commonwealth is represented by Andrew
Hunter. It is deemed unnecessary at present
to lnoreese to any extent the military force
now here. Thelonly addition that has been
made is a company of twenty cavalry from
Shepardstown. No fear Is entertained of an
attempt at rescue.
Republican Caucus.
Wash motoi, February J. The Republicans
held a caucus to-day. Many seekers after
plaoee were gathered in the lobbies impatiently
awaiting the result. The rumors from time to
time created muoh excitement among them.

Henry W. Hoffman for Sergeant-at-Arms of
the House. '
These gentlemen were recommended, but not
elected. No definite action was taken on can
didates for the offices.
Some difficulty was occasioned by there
being two candidates for Doorkeeper from
New York, Captain Darling and Ira Goode
nough, while George Marsten, of N. H., is a
prominent candidate for that office.

ARRIVAL OF THE AMERICA.

The object of Lord Cowley's mission to
London was to resume negotiations between
England and France, which ' were instituted
by the former and interrupted by Count
Walewski's proposition. The principle of
these negotiations was nonintervention in the
affairs of Central Italy. Franoe, adopting the
same basis, is desirous that the whole of
Europe ehould give its formal assent to the
principle. . . ..
With this view Lord Cowley was solicited
to sound the feeling of the British Cabinet as
to the advisability of addressing a collective
note to the European Cabinets. In this note
an Infraction of the prinoiple of non-intervention
was to be treated as eaiuibelli. Ths British
Cabinet, while expressing its readiness to
support the prinoipal of non-intervention,
either at the Congress or in its communication
with the foreign powers, pointed out the im
possibility of pledging itself without the con
tent of Parliament to a course of policy which
might possibly involve hostilities. The feel
ing of the Northern Courts give rise to some
fear that Europe would not passively submit
to to threateaing an intimation, and which
also implied the adoption of principles opposed
to the Independence of every State whioh pos
sesses the right of forming alliances as it may
think proper at its own risk and peril.
The British Cabinet having thus declined
the proposition to enter into engagements hav
ing suoh an important bearing, an early meet
ing of the Congress was again revived.
There was a doubtful rumor that the Em
peror of Austria has invited RussiaTlnd Prus

The London Times editorially criticises the
financial statement of the American Govern,
ment, and points out that allowing for tha
South of one State and the maturity of another,
lore is tho strongest possible analogy between
tne respective proceedings ot .England and
America. Iu another leader the same journal
expatiates on Mexican affairs, in connection
with the Presidents Message. It says: "There
is not a question but what the Amertoans, if
(boy plwaad, oould march to Mexico, nor is it
to be doubted that the advance would be at
tended with at least the temporary benefit of
tranquility.
"Saving British interests we should look on
such a proceeding with the least dissatisfaction;
but If Mr. Buchanan's description of Mexico
Is a faithful ploture, it will require far more
than one casual intervention to restore the
country to the rank of an organized State."
