THE NEBRASKA BILL PASSED.
By reference to the news in this clay's paper, it
will be seen that the Nebraska bill has passed the
Senate in the same shape in which it had formerly
passed the House, and that itis now the law of the
We have, by the Washington papers, lull reports i
of the action of the House on the passage of the
bill in that body. The southern members proved
themselves greatly the overmatch of their northern
opponents in parliamentary tactics. By an old
parliamentary rule, when an enacting clause of a bill
is amended in committee of the Whole, no other
amendment can be offered to the bill, which must
then be reportel to the House. Accordingly, Mr.
Stepetss, of Georgia, offered to amend the enact
ing clause, which was carried, and then thero was
nothing left to do but to report the bill to the House.
The House put the head on again, and then the tail,

turn, is nothing else but Judge Douglas' bill with

came from the House. The great principle of Con

FROM HAVANA IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING.
Our opportunities for obtaining reliable informa
tion from Cuba are better than those of mostof our
contemporaries of the American press, having per
sonal friends among those having business relations
with parties on the island, who, while they scrupu
lously refrain from forfeiting any obligation of their
political position of mere spectators of passing
events, are in everyway capable of forming cool
and accurate opinions of what may be transpiring'
around them. We have more than once already
spread before the readers of the Star information
reachintr us from such sources. Again we have been
I favored by our friend in New York with a sight of
important Havana leiiers, 10 me ioin iusi., wuku
say that "it is difficult to describe the apprehension
prevailing through the city, and, I understand,
throughout all the interior towns. The various in
cidents related of the growing insolence of the ne
groes is startling. The Marquis goes by the name
'Papa Juan, the patron of Liberty and Equality.'
One sees them in knots all over the city, discussing
the decrees. The alarm and excitement is as great
in the interior as in the city. The cry trill soon be
revolution, and to arms; and, rest assured, will be a
bloody and horrid warfare. A high officer of the
government has just told me that he knows of a
comincr decree which will cause bitter tears to
From another writer to the same commercial
source in New York, we learn that "the registra
tion to the end of setting free all negroes arriving
since 1820, is being pushed with unexampled vigor
throughout the whole island. England, while pre
tending to oppose the slave trade, has withdrawn
all her ships from the African coast, and openly per
mits extradition as apprentices, to Africanize Cuba."
According to the last information we can obtain,
we shall by no means be surprised if it turns out
that the government decrees all the negroes of the
island virtually free, after a short term of years,
except about 150,000. The signs of the times point
to this result of their present labors and plots.
This, we presume to be the "coming decree" which
is to "cause bitters tears to flow," referred to above.
And well it may; the free citizens thus to be made,
being nine-tenths of them African born negroes,
almost as barbarous, and quite as incapable of suc
cessful self government, as on the days on which
they were landed from the slave ships.
It is a curious and interesting problem with us
to know how far the government of the United
States will permit Spain to go with the work of
making Cuba ninety miles only from our Gulf
coast a second St Domingo. We have no idea
in the present condition of popular and Congres
sional sentiment that three months will elapse be
fore the Executive branch of the Government of
the United States, will bring the progress of this
English policy in the island to a dead halt, at all
risks and any hazard, self-preservation on our part
being the first great law of nations, as well as of

The enemy taking advantage of the heavy calibre
of his guns, and particularly of his paixhans, of G8
and 9G, kept for the most part out of range. For
this reason the fourth and fifth batteries, being dis
tant, took litt'e part in the contest, although they
were within the range of the enemy's guns; but
the sixth, or left battery, placed on the extremity
of the pratique port, fought at first with four guns
and afterwards with two one of its guns being
dismounted, and the enemy being out of the range
of the other. This battery, commanded by Ensign
Stchegolew, of the reserve battery of the 14th
brigade of artillery, maintained a contest of six
hours against the e'nemy's steamers, which towards
the conclusion of the battle were seven in number.
In addition to these, they had a screw steamer of
the line, carrying 24 guns. The battery at length
ceased firing, and Ensign Stchegolew only drew
off his men when the vessels which were in the
practique port behind the batteries, as well as the
fortifications, caught fire. The coolness and self
denial of Ensign Stchegolew spread themselves
amongst his artillerymen, and at the end of the bat
tle three of the enemy's steamers were obliged to
be taken in tow.
In virtue of the powers which have devolved
upon me, I have honored those who particularly
distinguished themselves in the above mentioned

THE FREKCn ACCOUNT OF THE BOMBARDMENT-
Nothing is spoken of here (Paris, Saturday even
ing, May G,) but the successful issue of the attack
on Odessa, and the gratification felt at the news is
enchanced by the uncertainty which prevailed on
the subject for some days previously. A telegraphic
despatch received in Paris to-day gives intelligence
from Constantinople to the 25th ult, and fully con
firms the accounts already received. This despatch
adds that the combined squadron had sailed for Se
bastopol, with the intention, it was supposed, of
merely blockading the place. The following is the
account given by the Moniteur of the proceeding at
Ville de Pap.13, Odessa Roads, April 25.
On the morning of the 22d, eight steam-frigates
three French and five English proceeded to the
imperial port of Odessa, and at half-past six four
of them had opened their fire on the land batteries.
The two moles as well as the intermediate batteries
warmly returned it At ten o'clock four other
frigates joined, and then the action became general
It continued until five o'clock in the evening when
Admiral Dundas made signal to the frigates to join
the squadron. The fire had gained the battery of
the imperial mole; the powder magazine had blown
up; fifteen vessels, with the exception of two or
three, were either sunk or on fire. The naval
establishmento were also on fire, or very much in
jured from the shells. The town and the commer
cial port, where a number of vessels of all nations
were moored, were respected, beveral ot these
vessels took advantage of the confusion and got out
and among them the only two French vessels
that were there.
THE WAR PREPARATIONS OF TnE ALLIED POWERS.
The Paris Moniteur contains the following im
portant announcement in reference to the war, and
the intention of the two Powers to undertake still
more extensive operations against Russia.
The French and English governments have
agreed in the adoption of all the measures of pre
caution which the present war may render neces
sary. With this object the Emperor has just de
cided on the formation of two camps of manocu
vering. The first, consisting of 100,000 men, will
be established along the shore of the Monache, be
tween Montreuil and St Omer. The second con
sisting of 50,000 men, will form near Marsailles
The English government, on its side, are preparing
troops, and fleet capable of transporting, in case
ot necessity, the torces which they may judge ue
cessarveither in the Baltic or in the Black Sea.
The Paris correspondent of the London Times
It is not difficult to guess for what object the
camp of 100,000 men is formed, and there is little
doubt that the opinion of superior officers of the
army with reference to an expedition to the Baltic
is well founded. It is said that both Revel aud
Helsefors will be occupied, and the shutting up of
the Gulf of Finland completed. The object of the
establishment of the camp in the south is to have
reinforcements at hand for the army of the East,
and very probably to make a descent on the Crimea
w hile the combined fleets attack Sebastopol. The
government naturally keep their plan of operations 1
enveloped in secrecy, butny one who is aware of
the determination of both England and France to
act with utmost vigor, and thereby shorten as much j
in error in 111s supposition as to the ultimate desti
nation of these forces.
The establishment of the camp between Mon
treuil and St. Omer is thought to be quite as much
as possible the period of the war, will not be much
directed towards Prussia as towards the Baltic or
the Gulf of Finland, and, in case Prussia showed
symptoms of foul play, it is not imposssible that
that army, joined by a formidable Belgian contin
gent, would find its way to the banks of the
Rhine. It is whispered that the Emperor reserves
to himself the command of this fine army and that
he will establish his camp at Pont-de-Brie. where
his uncle had once his headquarters. He will have
his Guards with him. The corps of 50,000 men at
Marseilles will, it is said, be commanded by General
THE ENGLISn WAR BUDGET.
In the House of Commons on the 8th inst, the
English Chancellor of the Exchequer brought in
his war budget He proposes to meet the expen
diture of the war by increased taxation and to
avoid having recourse to a loan. The following
from a daily London paper gives a succinct account

Whether the mode of raising so large an amount
of revenue be the best that cau be devised, it is,
perhaps, difficult to say, but we think that it ts as
free from the charge of obstruction, to the trade
and industry of the country as any plan which tax
ation to the same extent may be inflicted on the
people. We trust that, through our increased and
increasing trade, as shown by the official returns,
of which we gave the substance on Saturday last,
the additional demands thus necessarilyjnade upon

IMPORTANT FROM PERSIA.
Under the title of "Rupture between Persia aud
Russia;" the Journal de Constantinople publishes the
following on the incident mentioned in the dis
patches from Constantinople:
According to the letters from Teheran, written
by persons in a position to be well-informed, the
Russian ambassador extraordinary, Count Kanicoff,
who had been sent to Persia to extort fresh conces
sions from the Shah, and force him to declare him
self against the Sublime Porte, and who, from un
favorable circumstances, thought it prudent to stop
at Tiflis, is said to have sent from that place to M.
Dolgorouki, Russian minister at the court of Per
sia, an order to call on the Persian government, by
means of an ultimatum, to declare within 2 hours
whether it intended to take part with Russia
against Turkey. Tno same letters announce that
the Shah of Persia is said to have replied to this
arrogant ultimatum by giving orders to 50,000 men
to proceed to the Turco-Persian frontiers, under the
command in chief of Mehemet Kahn, his minister
of war. The Shah is said to intend to demand
from Russia the restitution of the provinces which
have been taken from him at different periods. If
this news be confirmed, it may be considered very
favorable to Turkey and her allies.
ATTITUDE OF AUSTRIA.
It is stated on good authority here that Russia
recently notified Prussia that she had determined
to address an ultimatum to Austria, calling upon her
to explain her conduct, and summoning her, rather
peremptorily, to declare herself either for or against,
but, at all events, -todeclare herself. The Prus
sian Minister replied, that he Emperor of Russia
need not give himselt'Tiny trouble of addressing an
ultimatum to Austria, as he (the Persian) well
knew and could not tell beforehand the nature of
the answer that would be given. Nearly at the
same time Austria informed Prussia that she also
was to address an ultimatum to Russia, calling upon
her to account for her intrigues and her revolution
ary attempts in the States of neighboring sove
riegns, and particularly Monte-negroJ' when she
(Austria) was determined to piitilown by force the
revolt Sho also'reproaches Russlafwith her con
duct in the Principalities, and insists upon their
evacuation. When ultimatums of such a kind are
passing to and fro, we may soon expect something
CONSTERNATION AT ST. PETERSBURG.
A letter from the Baltic of the 2Gth ult, in the
Moniteur, says: The thaw Of the Neva is expected
in two days. The ice has already broken tip in the
Gulf at a little distance from Cronstadt, which will
be very probably accessible at the end of the month.
The approach of hostilities is strongly felt at St.
Petersburg, and measures are being taken with a
view to dangers which are profoundly apprehended,
though denied. Four batteries have just been es
tablished at the entrance of the Neva. The trea
sure in the fortress was sent eijjht days ago to
Moscow. From the 27lh, the command of the
town will be divided between four military govern
ors, and.the stale of siege will be applied.in all its
rigor. Many persons are leaving for the interior
of the country. The departure of the Emperor
foa Peterhoff, where the court was to have gone
onthe27th, is adjourned. The displeasure (me
conientemeht) caused by the policy of Austria was
everj day expressed morp "openly. It had been

Dr. Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial.
If It b Inquired how this great restorative ts accomplishing
uch extraordinary cures, we can only reply that in the Ara
bian herb that forms 1U cardinal Ingredient, have been
blended, by the Omnipotent Phylcian,alarge amount and
greater varieties of curative properties than had heretofore
been supposed to exlal In an ha ml red different articles of
the pharmacopeia. A whole medicine chest of remedies, so
to speak, seem to have been combined In this herb; and In
the Elixir or CordUl we hire their concentrated essence.
It Is the effect however.not the cause, with which we have
to deal in the practical application of tbe medlclLe. The
victims of dyspepsia are cared, the nervi are relieved ,
the half jural jzed resume tholr activity, the sufferers from
head ache are tormented no more, the weak become vigor
ous, the tint of jaundice leaves the complexion ofthe bil
ious, the depressed In spirits become bouyant, the sick In
almost every condition of disease derives Immediate benefit
from the use of Dr. Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial.
These facts, supported by irrefragable proof, are presented
to tbe attention of Invalids, who can verify them by a single
bottle of the medicine.
This Cordial Is put up, highly concentrated, in pint bot
tles. Price threedollarsperbottle, two foruve dollars, tlx
for twelve dollars. C. II. RING, Proprietor,
