II lack . Kcpnbllean Interpretation of
the Kansas Conference Hill Mr.
There are a multiplicity of interpretations
of the Kansas Conference Bill extant, pro
mulged by the politicians and the newspaper.
It is by turns a cloud pimply , then a camel, a
Church, a weasel, a whale." It is a trick, an
artifice, a bribe, a threat, hocus-pocus, ltger
denaio. It is a -concession of everything to
the freesoilera ; it concedes to them nothing ;
it jrjvea tho South the shadow and the North
the substance ; it gives the North the shadow
and the South the substance ; it is a resub
mission of the Lecompton constitution ; it is
not a re-submisf-ion at all ; it is a complete
backing down, of the Lccomptonites ; it is
Lecompton over again; it is a settlement of
the Kansas question ; it reOpens and staves
off the question indefinitely ; it is a triumph
of .freesoil fanaticism; it is a triumph of
slavery propagandL-m ; it is nothing; or it is
anything; or it is everything. It is a sort of
quintuple Janus, with about a dozen faces..
These constructionists are all sincere and
honest to say otherwise would be, at least,
ungenerous and for the present we call them
bo. But after all, the milk in the cocoa-nut
is slavery and anti-slavery. Kansas was en
. titled to admission under the Lecompton con
stitution as a slave State, because that instru
ment was formed by a convention embodying
the sovereignty of the people ; and by it the
people were bound. But she was not so ad
mitted, and it was ascertained that she never
could be upon the direct application. The
conference proposed a new scheme, whereby
there was another chance ofl'ered to attain
that result. It was opposed upon the same
radical and anti-slavery grounds, by the ma
jority of its opponents, to-wit. the black re
publicans, in both Houses of Congretw. They
were willing to admit Kausas under the Tope
ka constitution without its siilmiissioti to the
people, because, it was violently anti slavery;
they were willing to admit Kansas under the
Lecompton constitution, provided it could be
done so as to transform Kansas immediately
into a free State ; they were and are willing
to vote in any firm, on any principle, pro
Tided Blavery shall thereby lie circumvented
and weakened. From this stand-point we
have viewed this entire controversy. And
though we have opposed the whole Kansas
radmintstratiou of Mr. Buchanan and his pre
decessor; and though we might have preferred
a different policy by the Lecompton conven
tion; and though dissatisfied with the confer
ence bill, we could not lend ourselves for a
moment to the views of the black republicans,
or to be a party by accident or otherwise, to
a deliberate and systematic attempt to deprive
the South of rights which she claims under
the Federal constitution the regular crea
tion of the territorial laws of Kaunas.
More to preserve a clear and connected re
cord than for any present practical good, we
Bubjoin a few extracts from the speech of Mr.
Seward, in the Senate on the 30th April,
pending the conference bill. These disclose
the true ground on which he and his party
associates have resisted the admission of Kan
sas, and verify the correctness of our views:
"Mr Presidnet, the use of equivocation, or
the double entendre, is un act of immorality in
legislation, deserving of severe consure.
What respect, what submission, what obedi
ence can you expect from the citizen, if legis
lators resort to such a practice in making
their laws? There are worse consequences
beyond this immorality. The measure Ufore
Congress will draw after it, not only the in
tranet of Kansas into the Union as a slave
State, but all the cotwetpieiues which will
follow from tlie erUdlihment of a sit ire State
in lite centre of litis continent on lliu high
way between the Atlantic and l'acilic north
of 30 deg. 30 min. a slave State that we are,
for our present purpose, to consider is to bo
perpetual and immortal. You have only, by
this or by any other course of action, direct
or iudirect, to introduce slavery there, and
extend it across our whole domain from
North to South, to raiso a lmrrier between the
Last and the West, ln-tween the Atlantic and
I'aciHc portions of the Republic, I was going
to"say as enduring, I will say more insur
mountable that thej idges of the Ilocky Moun
tains or the snow-capped range of the Sierra
"Sir, it amuses me much when I hear pat
riotic aud sugucious men pretending the
removal of this capital from the falls of the
l'otomac to the junction of the Alleghuny and
the Monongahcla, or sometimes, wiiu a broa
der forecast, to Cincinnati, the queen city of
Ohio, or further on to St. Louis, and so set
tling the centre of Federal power in the valley
of the Mississippi. Sir, if you will only con
fine this institution of slavery within its pre
sent boundaries, give it no further room nor
verge, the capital of thiscountry may remaiu
where it is, but the centre of the Union will
be nearer the valley of Mexico than the valley
of the Mississippi. Then that power will
grasp the equator on the one side and the
northern polo ou the other. But no such
hope awaits the Republic if you separate
the free Atlantic States froiu the free l'acilic
"Sir, while this bill ignores the real question
it suppresses, with double care, the great,
leading, actual political fact, w hich lies every
where just beneath the surface of the whole
debute. If Kansas tomes into Uiis Union un
der the Lecomjiton Constitution, she comes as
a slave State. If she conn s under any other
constitution, it is hotx.d, by those who advo
cate freedom, that she will come as a free
State. This bill gives Kausas the choice of
lieing a slave Slate, and only that choice.
You have already induced the Supreme Court
of the United States to expound your Consti
tution so that the President, on their authori
ty, declares that Kausas, so long as she re
mains a Territory, Is a slave State as much us
South Carolina. The change you offer her is,
that if she will accept the Lecompton Consti
tution rhc shall Ik' recoguied in form, as well
as iu fact, as a slavu State. Sir, your bill
gives no alternative but ttiK ItUont indeed
sav that in the future f!od knows how far
olf it may lie if slavery be now recognized
there, the people of Kansas may make anoth
er constitution, and send it to you here for
your consideration. Sir, the postponement is
a mockery. When they come here with a free
constitution, they will do only w hat they d d
two years ago; you refused them then. fh y
will only have in that constitution what they
had la the Missouri prohibition, thirt v-eigbt
yeacs ago; and you struck that prohibition
frrn the statute book. They will only rejs-at
what they demand now, to be admitted as a
free State; you n tusu now to admit them In
this character. Sir, it is offering a wager
against chance, backed by device and fraud.
Here U a piece of silver of the coinage of the
United State. Ou the one side is the eagle,
on the reverse is the emblem of liU rty; jou
say to Kansas choose, wager, whether the
eagle of liberty i uppermost; Mill slavery
wius the wager. Sr, Uum btU is nothing but Lit
compto mt agmn. Lteemyton with a "etc varia
tion, but the abhorrent air pervades the eutire
arrangement of this composition.
- -Upou what grounds ka this bill, thus shown
to be so deeply objectionable, recommended
to us? FlrstU is r coim-ii-nek el as a compro
mise. ' The honorable Chairman tell us that
when there U a difference there cau never be
a settlement unless there is a compromise;
the House of lieprem-utives has pvcu away
something, though everybody, except myself,
has failed in finding out what there la given
or gotten. Still we are to accept it as a com
promise. If it is a comprombw at all, to I
urged on tue, it must be a compromise that
(fives me BOUTthluj of freedom in exchange
for much of slavery. What do I get for free
dom in Kansas ! The privilege for that p. ople
to make a constitution when they shall have
population jof one hundred thousand, aud
otniuff here and preseuuug u wj
1854 when the original iwana-.ei
w i..lvH had that urlvilege ever
fciuce. We would always wake
Very well, what then T l U to be m &ut
then? No. Then it shall be' -admitted free
or slave, just exactly as the people shall d
sire." : Well, sir, that is iust what we had to
tion, and come here and obtain 'admission,
free or slave as we pleased, according to the
text of your statu te-book,- bt t w have com?
here and demanded freedom, and have been
contumeliously spnrned from your' presence.'
They refuse to be admitted w a slave State,
and they are remanded home to try it over
again, and reconcile .tbemsel ves to slavery, on
the penalty of coming no mere, or not until
they number one hundred thousand souls. If
Kansas shall do this, and be docile and quiet,
you think yon will admit her when she comes
as free State, a half dozen or a dozen years
hence, but you hope, nevertheless, that in the
meantime she will be demoralized, and come
at last a slave State. , I tell you moreover,
that when she shall come as a free State, . as
as site will, you will be unableto satisfy your
selves upon the forms she has gone through
with in attaining that happy condition.
Sir, we shall not deceive ourselves. . Tliere is no
freeilomfor Kansas under this bill.
It is therefore, just no compromise at all;
it is a pretense of compromise. Sir, I was
lorn suspicions of legislative compromises.
That temper has grown on me more every
day of my life. I have seen the dangers and
the evils that have followed them; and I made
up my mind when I came here, that I would
harden my face as a flint against any com
promise whatever between freedom and
slavery. This compromise, however inspires
me with hope unknown before. I look on it
with more complacency than on any other,
for it is such a miserable imitation of the com
promises -which have been hallowed in the
resject and affections of the people of the
people of the United States for generations,
that it will bring the whole system of. com
promise henceforth and forever into ridicule,
and of unmitigated contempt.
" Sir, your Lecompton government of Kan
sas will be afloat on the Missouri river; when
it begins. The Missouri river will not be wide
enough for it; it must go down for safety until
it reaches the broader channel of the Missis
sippi, and when you next look for it, you will
find it strandwl on the beach of the Gulf of
Mexico. There is to be no Leropipton Stale, no
slave State in Kansas. Nevertheless you enact by
this law, that tliere 'hall Ije a slave State m Kansas,
and there thall be no other.
"Mr. President, while I am speaking, I
learn that this bill, of so such evil omen, has
passed the House of Representatives, and
that the battle there is ended. I confess to
you, sir, that it produces on my mind, if some
disapixuitmtut, no discouragement. I con
fess that I was prepared for this conclusion,
and that now w hen it has come (for what
remains to le done here is a matter of course)
it is to me utterly indifferent. This I have
known all the while; that this was to be otir
last defeat or our first victory. Either result
would have been welcome. For Kansas, for
freedom in Kansas. I have not so much con
cern as I have about the place where I shall
sleep to-night, although my home is hanl by
the place w here I stand. Kansas, sir, is the
Cinderella of tthe American family. She is
buffeted; she is insulted; she is smitten and
disgraced; she is turned out of the dwelling,
and the door is locked against her. There is
always, however, a fairly that takes care of
the younger daughter, it sue oe me most
honest the most virtuous, the meekest, and
the most enduring inmate of the domestic
'Kansas will live and survive your perse
cution; she will live to defend, protect, and
sustain you, and the time will come when her
elder sisters, now so arrogant, Louisiana. Vir
ginia, and Pennsylvania, will repent all the
injustice they have done her. lb r trials have
not been imposed on her for naught. She has
been made been to take the position, the dan
gerous and hazardous position, of being the
lirft to vindicate practically by labor, by toil,
through desolation, through suffering and
blood, the principle that freedom is better for
States and for the Republic than slavery.
She will endure the trial nobly, and as she
has lsen the first, so she will le the last to
contend and to suffer. Every other Territory
that xliall ojrne into the Union hereafter, projitiny by
the sufferings and atotttment of Kaiwis, will eimte
into the Union a free Slate. Sir, this unneces
sary strife draws to its end. The effort to male
nhive States within our d'-min is ayaimt reason,
and against nature. The trees do not spring up
from the roots and s 'tds scattered by the pa
rent trnnks in the forest more naturally than
new free States spring up from the roots pro
jected and the seed scattered by the old free
States. New stars do not form themselves
out of the ncbuhe in the re cesses of space and
come out to adorn the blue expanse alove us,
than new free States shape thrmsedves out of
the ever eleveloping elements ef our lienigu
civilization, and rise to take their place in
this great pedilical constellation. Reasen and
hope rejoice in this majestic and magnificent
process. Let, then, nature and reason and
hope have their heaven appointed way. Re
sist them no louger."
The demand forinsuranee in this city is so
great, our home offices are unable to supply
it, and applicants are compelh el to go abroad.
It would ls lie-ttcr for the interests ef all. if
this could lie avoided if there were home ef
fices and agencies enough here to supply nil
applications. Properly conducted, the busi
ness eif insurance, w hilst it is a ble-ssing to the
public at large, is remunerative to the steck
holder, yielding him ample profiits upon the
capital invented; and it is strange that in a
community where there1 is so much surplus
cnpital sen-king employment, that the nunilsT
of insurance ofliee's in Nashville is so limite'd.
The Legislature has heretefeire lieen liberal in
granting charte rs wheneve r de-sireel; anel they

was a charter, however, granted at the session
ef 185.-1, te the "Home Jnsutatwe Company of

Is-e-n maele. Il-re, then, is the nucleus of a
company to take the place of the several cem

the controversy as to sever party ties and an

support of the Constitution. So alarming was
the crisis as to produce in the minds of many
serious apprehensions of the integrity and
permanency of the Union itself. Doctrines
were fearlessly proclaimed and boldly urged
upon the occasion by the enemies of the South
in antagonism to. -and violation of the Consti

one-half of the confederacy, and wholly sub

Cotton the Best Investment.
Since the 1st of September last, an unusual
number of causes have operated to depress
the price of cotton such as the great revul
sion of last Fall, the numerous anel large
failures, the prostratiem of many manufactur
ing establishments, the prevailing alarm of
capitalists, the continuing restraint upon
credit and speculation, the over-estimate of
the cotton crop of last ye-ar, and the unpre
cedented prewpect for an immense: and early
cot (ou crop feu- the pre-sent year, which existed
until within the last four we-eks.
In spite of the'se various depressing causes,
the price of ceitton has not only Is-en main
tained, but has shown an unconquerable ten
dency to advance.
The chie-f reason for this, is. that the ron
m mpt ion of American Cotton in Foreign countries
since the first of Siptanifr last has been at the rate
of about 230,000 Wei jr month!
That rate of consumption in Foreign coun
tries is demonstrated as follows:
Since 1st of Se -ptember last op to May 1st,
(a pcrioel of eight months,) the exports of
Ani"rican cotteiu toForeigu countries, amount
te nearly 1,!I00,(J00 bales: anel notwithstand
ing these large exports, the stock ef cotton in
Foreign countries at the late.-st dates is about
the same it was on the 1st of S -pte-mber last.
Hence, it is clear, the? Foreign consumption
since 1st Septcmlier last has be-en about cental
tei foreign exports; otherwise the stock in For
eign countrie s woulil have materially incre-as-eei
over the stock on hand ou the 1st of Sep-te-mls
It may safely be assumed that the rate of
foreign consumption of American cotton, for
the next four months, will lie fully as large as
it has been for the last eight months; for it
seems plain, that the re have lieen more dis-conrage-ments
to consumption during the last
eight months, than there can probably be for
the ne'xt four mouths If the; rate of foreign
consumption for the next feuir memths shemld
Is1 as large as that of the last eight months
that is, about 230,000 bab.-s per month that
of itself will take lor foreign countries aliout
920.000 bale's feir the next tour months I It
But the total stock in all our ports, on the
1st of May, 1858, as shown by the price-s cur
rent, is but little over 600.000 lle-s; and it is
now regarded as certain that the receipts from
1st May to lt September, 18."R, will not ex-ce-ed
300.000 bales. It thus appears that the;
total supply eif cotton in the United Stab's
(including all that is in the port as we-11 as In
th ceiuntry) is now about 900,000 bales!! !
This supply of 900.000 bab.-s is not e qual
to the elemand feir foreign consumption anel feir
home con.iiimjttion!.'! A struggle; must take
place between emr Northern Manufacturers
and Feireiirn Manufacturers, as tej the 900.000
bale's; anel an advance in the price must bo the
Up te the- present time, capitalists have been
afraiel te give very lar-re credit te manufactu
rers, or to invest iu cotton. Up to the pres
ent, the belie-f has generally prevailed, that
the supply of American cotten was greatly
in excess of consumpl'on eir de-manel. Up te
about the 8ihef April, the lie-lief was univer
sal, that the; cotton creipof this year weiulel Is1
far tie; largest eve r raised. All thewe things
contributed until now te k--ep ebiwn the price
of cotton; tliey have hael an undue influence
in keeping elejwn the price1: they have ceased
to operate unduly, anel a reactieni is now com
ing on. This reae-tiem will lie epiie-ke-ne-n anel
strengthened by the abundance and cJieapness if

We ure awurc. that there are niMitional

A. Spanish Cavalier BTaklng Love to
the Daughter ofan American Bank
er The Father Challenged, and th
V (Correspondence cf the S. T. Express)
"r- - - Warhixgtox, May 4th, 1868. - "
An nnpleasant affair has recently occurred
here, which causes no little excitement in
diplomatic anel fashionable circles. , An
attache of the Spanish Embassy has long been
an admirer of the only daughter of a retired
Banker of Washington, or, at least of the
'beaux yeax de sa cassette." The , father,- for
reasons easily conjectured by all prudent pa
rent", forbade the Spanish Cavalier his house.
The Cavalier rerireel to bis lodgings, and
wrote the Banker a challenge, but could find
no one to deliver it. .. r-.
On Tuesday night last, the Banker was
dining with Mr. Slidcll, who occupied the
next house to his own on Lafayette square.
While partaking of Mr. Slidell's hospitality,
