Wcclip from the New York Uernld ofThursday
(for which we are indebted to a friud its
special Washington Dispatch!
Washington, Jan. 4, 1860,
There are no indications of a speedy organization
of the House. The simultaneous response
today of at least fifty democratic
members to the appeal of Mr. Kilgore for the
plurality rule, that it would never be allowed
to operate, looks like an organize*] determination
to resist nnv election, uulee* it is obtained
by a majority front those who were clected by
republican votes. On the other band, some
of the gentlemen who thus obtained their election,
and announced their intention to vote for
Mr. Sherman before Congress assembled, now
refuse to do so, declaring they never will do it,
ii/l (liat alandinrv nnt tliotr will nnnr/vA tlio
V..?v """"."b v - ? the
democracy to submit to the plurality rule.
It is evident that the democrats will not be
dragooned into any such thing, There is a
report currcnt to-day thnt an election will b?
prevented until after the Charleston Convention.
The republicans are tnlking to- night abut a
cancu* to determined what their future policy
shall be in recard to the speakership. The
mnin object is to prevent speaking and
insist upon balloting.
Messrs. Sickles and Revolds were the only
absent members ?'f tbe House who had not
paired off. In a spirit of accommodation Mr.
Taylor to-day paired with Mr-Sickles. The
absence of Mr. Reynoldn, without pair, accounts
for the change in the relative vote for
Mr. Sherman, who lacked tliiec votes of on
Senator Douglas is reported sick to,day. He
may yet be obliged to go South,
The delegate from Utah will, after the organization
of the House present the application
of that territory for admission into the Union.
They adopted a constitution several rears ago.
He represents that Utah has a population of
100.000, and that if the Mormons were allowed
to elect their officers the would be almost
as well satisfied with a Territorial as a State
organization, and probably be willing to pay
the cxnetifes of their government besides.
A member of an extensive furnishing house
in New York arrived here to day froiu a tour
south, and reports that Richmond, Va., merchants
refused to continue their trade with his
house, because lie and his partners voted ior
Fremont. It is 6aid to be the fact that such a
feeling is stronger in Richmond that in an}'
other Southern city, because of the d?sire of
busioes men to oinpete with the great Northern
citiee of Baltimore, Philadelphia, Now York
Voluminous despatches were received at the
Department of Stat* from Minister McLane today.
No material change in aspect of affairs
had occurred. The liberals were maintaining
their position, notwithstanding the embarrassments
under which they were laboring. The
main thing necessary to secure their permanent
ascendency is material aid, and unless something
is speedily done, they will be compelled
to yield up the power they nowposBcss. Tha
ratification by our government of the treaty
negotiated would, in Mr. McLane's judgment
be of immense benefit to them, and might
ultimately place them beyond the reach of the
various parties who arc now waging war
against the liberals. The British bondholders

1 last paper writine froui Charleston, trivea somi
interesting information relativo to the tru<

goods in Northern markets upon as lavorabl

* ;n the subjoined extract, explains this poin
; vary clearly:
'j A movement is oo foot, with a fair proa pec
of success, to put on a direct line of steamer

' is ample, and the facilities extended to met

ter. Already a much larsrer amount of irood

commercial importance in the country, an
large'cargoes are 6b the way to swell tlie su[

- here must be assured of the earnest co-operi

The Vtyr Yor)^ Jvutnaty>/ Cotn^ttee, closes
an arlicle on the effeota of tbe non-intercourse
movements in the Soutl), with the following
"The South has been making gradual pro*
grens in the mechanic arts for many years
past, and factories for the' coarser cotton aud
woolen fabrics bore been put in operation in
many State*; so that this movemeut is r,o new
thine, but h*s simply received an'unusual find
marked impetus, for reasons already given.?
The chief diffioulty of the South in extending
her efforts to successful pjactical result*, bos
been her laek of mechanical skill. She has
been almost wholly an agricultural producer,
ller laborers (slaves) are chiefly farmers; the
whites, merchants and professional men.- She
now looks for operatives to aid her in carrying
on her mechanical enterprises, and already has
she engaged the services of many such from
I the North. Northern mechanics, aud all who
are willing to engage iu ? legitimate and honorable
occupation, are most desirable acquisitions
to tliu South, and are cordially welcomed.
We learn that never before was so large an
emigration of this class to the South known.?
The iuducemcnts to go South are unusual; for
not only are the wages considerably larger
than are paid here, and the expenses of living
somewhat leas, but in many parts of the Notrh
complaints of hard times have begun to be
heard. Some arc out of employ, as is always
the ease iu tlie winter season, and others are
working at reduced wages. The Chelsea
(Mass.) lierald reports dull times there, 'the
best carpenters being glad to get work at J1.26
per dny, and good workmen commanding only
7ft cents. Painters, it is said, will not average
60 cents a day the coming winter; ship-earpeuters
are out of employ, and masona have
gone into the country.' The prospects of all
such would be improved, at least for the pre
sem, oy going souin.

We owe It to*our patrons and friends,',*? weJ|
as to ourselVeft, to stata tliiii publicly the roa?ou
why many or our customers have been; and others
may be, disappointed in'ihfc fulfillment or their
" orders rt brought un by servBiiis for spiritous
Some time ago we wore waited on very politely
by Mr. J A&tBi M. rEUKIN, who
said he was directed by a 'Vigilance CJlnmitteo"
recently organized inthis place, to say
to us that^r.e had no right to sell %pirits in
any quantity, to any man, if the order ftH
the same was Irought by a Nogro, even by
tho slave of tho individual who Bonds the
order. Being thus admonished we, as all
good citizens ought, have ever since complied
with said instructions.
Many of our friends have advised us to the
contrary, thinking do doubt, we had the right in
law to let a master have three gallons or more,
through his servant, especially when that servant
brings an order signed by him. Dut be
the matter as it may, it affects the public more
than it does us; and it may be best, under present
circumstances, to require every one who
wishes to buy spirit* to come for tho article in
"proper person"?at least) so it would seem
think the " Vigilance Committee."
Wc are young men, but recently started in
huttineBS, and comparative strangers in this community.
Our object is to do right; and admitting
(or the moment that wo had the law on our
aide, we are nevertheless witling, and cheerfully
promise, to obey the wishes of the orderly and
respectable portion of the community.
