Story, ami we new find that it was a ma'i'-ious fib
riotion and totally without foundation, HHthp read
er will nerceive by the annexed extract of a private
letter from an cfficer of the ship, dated at Rio de
Janeiro, September 20:
"A fil?e and malicious report pot circulation on
6ncrf here to the fleet that a 'mutiny occurred on
board the St. Lawrence, and eo great was the out
break that the Frer.ch and Enclish vessels f war
ha i to nend men on bord to quell the riot ; that
eijrhte. n f t!e ringleaders were confined, and that,
bv s n'enc of a court martiai, they are to be hung,
Alth' uii the c-ffieer had repeatedly heard this
Biorv -iii 'he rounds on i-hnre and as often denied
it, it 8u'; q'lently Mppeared in one of the pp 'ra of
the city, mul ciused a ereat sensation. It bi came
nerer.sary to correct t-0 unfounded and base a re
port, and a paragraph wae written and sent to the
editor Ftatinr th it the rumor was false in every
particular, and that the author was a base calumni
ator. An flectual 6top was therefore put to the
B?anddl, and we are now endeavoring to ferret out
the author. The truth is that five of our men pot
intoxieat d on 8b re on the 7th inst., the anniver
sary of the Brazilian ind- pendence, and after they
pot on board were unruly and noisy. When they
were ordervd tobe con lined and the master-at-arms
attempted to arrest them, they threw ehot and
marlin-f pik- a at him, but with the assistance of the
serg- ant of marines and ship's corporal, they were
soon overpowered and put in irons. The Commo
dore wjis on bo.'H and heard nothing of it. Two
days afterwards it was mentioned to him; he had
all hand-i summoned on the quarter-Jeck, and there
admoirihed th.- crew of the consequences of re-Bi.-tin'
tin- police of the phip, and that in future he
woul i hoM theru all responsive for any such occur
rence ui.lers they lent their assistance to ferret out
and to secure any one guilty of insubordinate con
duct. It was this haruigue, I presume, that gave
rise to the report. We have five other men con-
fined for a inot heinom ciime, which cannot well .
be surp-sed in the catalogue of crime, for which (!
they are now undergoing trial by a naval court mar- ;

painful residence in Jersey, has a face Bpeckled
with freckles, the result of the sunlight on
the sandy Boil of that monopoly domain is
and has been, and always will be a dog fan

of every variety known to man. His great

Joe keeps a tavern, a few miles in the rear
of Camden, upon a dismal sort of a by-road,
which, by virtue of crossing the Camden aud
Am boy liailwaysever.il times in its zigzag
course, is sometimes culled the "Short Cut to
Eternity." The bitting room of Joe' tavern
wits large, airy, couif irtlcss, aud there was an
old-fashioned lire place, which occupied au en
tire hide of the apartment. The two bull ter
riers, in cold weather, were continually roast
ing themselves at each end of the hearth,
bCiirccly ever stirring, uulesa tempted by hun
ger to hunt up a stray bone or two. One
evening a stranger stopped for the night, and,
ttfter his horse was cared for, Joe ushered his
gticbt into the bittii g room, aud weut out to
do up the chores." The stranger erew up a
chair to tlie center of the broad hearth, ai.d
then, for the tirt time, noticed that he was
the ohject of an intense norutiuy from two
ugly canines, one each bi Je of him.
Presently the stranger gave vent to a vio

wagged their stumpy tails, looted at each

'The Constitution of Kansas.
A copy of this document has, at length,
been given to the country. "We have met
with it in the colums of the St. Louis
Democrat of the 2nd inst. Whether it is
an authorized and correct version of that
instrument, we are unable to decide. It
has neither certificates nor signatures; but
inasmuch as it was first communicated
through a Kansas paper, it is presumed till
the contrary is shown, that it is veritable
and true. And since it has come to light,
what is it? Upon subjects outside of the
slavery question, it is, as we supposed,
simply a rt.-hash of those of various other
States. It divides the elementary powers
of government into three departments, the
Legislative, Executive and Judicial the
duties of each being carefully and specifi
cally defined. It contains liberal provis
ions for the encouragement of education
and internal improvements prohibits the
creation of a State debt exceeding five
hundred thousand dollar authorizes the
creation of banks of deposit and exchange,
but not of issue, except, one with two
branches, and that not until the act crea
ting it shall have been submitted to and
ratified by the people secures to married
women the separate right of property
make3 all officers of the State, executive,
judicial and ministerial elective by the
people and generally seeks by all the
usual constitutional means, to foster and
promote the happiness and prosperity of
the people. "We have been unable to find
in its general provisions anything partial,
tyranical or oppressive. Many things
occur, as matters of State policy, about
which there mkrht be honest differences of
opinion among sincere and patriotic men,
perhaps; but nothing which would warrant
such a degree of objection and opposition
as should precipitate violent or revolution
ary measures nothing which could not be
remedied by easy aud peaceful means at
Outside of the body of the constitution
and preceding the preamble, the Conven
tion assumed to dictate to the General
Government how much of the public lands
lying within her borders, should be relin
quished to tlie State. In this they were
quite liberal enough. They propose to
take four sections out of every township of
thirty six; also two entire townships of sev
enty two sections, for a seminary of learn
ing; also each alternate section for twelve
miles ou each side of a line of railroad the
whole breadth of the State, from North to
South, aud the same for another line of
railroad, the whole length of the State
from East to "West; also all salt springs,
and gold, silver, copper, lead or other val
uable mines, together with the lands neces
sary for their full occupation and use; also
five per. centum of the net proceeds of the
sales of all lands in the State, sold by the
general government. In consideration of
all which they relinquished the taxes which
would otherwise be justly due from the Fed
eral government to the State upon the pub
lic laws in the State! This we deem simp
ly a proposition for a trade a bargain
involving nothing more than dollars and
cents, which may, and doubtless will be
rejected by Congress, without a moment's
hesitation. We have never seen a more
extravagant proposition it quadruples
the usual school aid to townships, doubles
the customary railroad aid, and throws in
the salt-springs, mines, etc., and tlie forty
six thousand acres of "Seminary" lands for
rood measure and all this over and above
the ordinary five per. cent, quid jro quo,
for taxes ! If the Convention could
obtain the acceptance of this proposal by
Congress, Jim Lane nor Gov. Ilobinson,
in their most violent and convulsive fits of
opposition to bogus laws, &c, could not
object to this part of the work! But this
may be, as it unquestionably ought to be,
stricken out by Congress, and yet leave
the Constitution entire and effective. AVe
therefore see no reasonable or insurmount
able objection to the present adoption of
the Constitution. The people of the ter
ritory have it before them, and they can
live under it without bloodshed, or even
very great inconvenience.
Hut it has been suggusted by the negro
worshipers that the Convention has only
made a feint of submitting the question
of slavery to a vote of the people; and
though they vote "no slavery" as provided
in the "schedule," it is yet, and would re
main notwithstanding, a pro-slavery con
stitution. The other provision than that
of the schedule (which we have already
published) relating to this suject, is as fol
"Section 1. The right of property is before and
higher than any constitutional sanction, and the
tiht ot the owner of a sl ive to such tdve an 1 itt
increase, is the sirue and hs inviolalde as the riht
of the owner of any property whatever.
See. 2. The Legislature eh. ill have no power to
piss laws for the emancipation of slaves without
the coneeut of the owners, or without paying the
owners previous to their emancipation, a full equiv
alent in money, fur trie sUve4 so emancipated.
They shall hae no power to prevent emigrants to
the ttate from briuin with tin m such persons as
are deemed slaves by the lws, of any pcrsou of
the same ai?e or description shall be continued in
sUvtry by theliws of this sUte, VotAiJ, That

to pars h a to permit the owners of slave to
en aucipale them, satinir the rights of creditors,
and prcventtug them from becoming a public
charge. They shall have power to oblige the own
i rsot tdve to treat them with humanity, to pro

limt'j aud In cars of their nehct or refusal to
comply with t ic tiirecliou of such laws, to have
such tdvo or slaves suld for tlie beutCtol the own
er or owners.
Sec. 3. la the prosecution of tlives for crimes

it ail i4vs no power t deprive itu-m of au impar
ti 1 ir 1 by a pen ,1 ry.
vC. 1. Any periu ho shall malicious? dis

puuiaiiuirnt as would be ittiicli d m case lbs Iks
uU'.-iiso bad beeu couiibklcd ou a free while persou,
aul ou the like proof, etc.pt iu casj of iuurro
tOJ of such slave."
That U the whole of it uo other part of
the constitution refers to or squints at it.
Theu what is thid other provision which is
fatal to the constitution and which iu the
sisrht of the.se lours of freedom, would jus
tify revolution, bloodshed and every other
evil that could afiiicta couiiuouwealth. The
sum and substance is, that the right of
property in slaves now in the territory 6hall
be respected and protected, and that no
prohibition shall be made against the in
troduction of such persons as are recog
nized by the laws of the State as slaves.
The State may free such slaves as are there
by paying their owners their value, and
whenever that is done, there can never
more be any slavery in the State. Less
than this the convention could not have
done without an open and ruthless disre
gard of the rights of property, and there
by violating the constitution of the Union.
Such disregard and violation, no man but
he who is fatally bent on mischief, could
tolerate. The abolitionist or frce-soiler
may talk to their hearts' content about
the abstract rights of the negro and the
sin of slavery, and the slave-owner
will heed them not; but when his right,
secured by the constitution of the land,
is invaded, when these men seek to de
prive him of his property, without com
pensation, he will never submit. And
this may be understood now and for all
time to come. "We do not make this state
ment in any spirit of defiance or threat,
but as the deliberate determination of men
who will stand by legally ascertained rights
under every circumstance, and defend them
at all hazards. There is nothing in the
Kansas constitution in this regard that is
not lawful and just, and opposition to it is
unlawful, unjust and unpatriotic.
Another objection which the free-state
men urge to the constitution, is that it can
not be altered or amended for seven years
to come. This is unfounded in fact. The
"Declaration of rights," incorporated into
the constitution, is its sufficient refutation.
It is therein declared:
"2. AH political power is inherent in the people,
and all free governments are founded on their au-
thoritv, and instituted for their benefit, ami there
fore they have at all times an inalienable and inde
feasible right to alter, reform or abolish their form
of government, in such manner as they may think
"25. Thia enumerition shall not be construed
to deny or disparage others retained by the people,
and to gurd airainst any encroachments on the
rights herein retaiued, nr any tsansgreegion of any
of the higher powpr herein )elegtQd, we declare
that eventhing in thi article is excepted out of the
general potrers of government, and shall forever
remain inviolate, mid llnit all Ijws contrary there
to or to the other provisions herein contained shull
It is therefore evident that the objections
propounded by the free-state men to this in
strument, are unfounded in fact and unrea
sonable in law. And their only object is to
perpetuate agitation and strife. They
could not possibly have been pleased with
any thing the Lecompton Convention could
have done. If it had adopted the Topeka
Constitution and left a t uncrossed, or an i
not dotted, they would have voted it down.
Their opposition is purely factious and
such being the case, we repeat that the
convention should be sustained that Con
gress ought to admit Kansas as a State, if
the constitution shall be ratified by any re
spectable portion of the peaceful aud law
abiding citizens of the territory, and thus
defeat the unholy purposes of these mis
chievous agitators, and put an end to the
evils which they have brought upon the
country, and which threaten the precious
existence of a proud and prosperous Re
public. The Chicago Time Stands Fire-List of

A Steamer in Collision with a Whale.
On the last trip of the steamer Columbia from
Oregon, an unusual number of the species of whal
known us 'humpback, were observed sporting in
the neighborhood of Humboldt Bay, as the only
monster of the deep can sport. The steamer, with
wind and steam fair in her tail, was running at the
rite of ten or twdve knots an hour, when, savs a
passenger, a huge whale raised to blow within half
a rod of the ship's prow, it body Uing at right an
gles with her course of sailing. Full thirty feet of
the monster s back must have been exposed, and all
were expecting an old fashioned
"Crash, the cruel coulter passed out thro' thy cell,"
when Mr. Fish eank almost like lead, but not quick
enough to "sive his bacon," for he was not at suf
ficient depth to be out of reach of the sliip s keel.
When the fish rose the wter for some distance
around was cria coned with its blood. Though with
diminished force, the ship struck with great vio
lence, turning the monster completely on its beam
ends, in which position it came to the surface, ou
the larboard side mid just in time to receive anoth
er severe ' thump" from the eteamer's paddle. But
it was not killed, for it was seen making its way to
ward the land some moments after Sacramento
Xbc Art of Condensation.
The art of condensation is something that every
one should cultivate ministers especially, it is
the lack of this art that leads ministers into long
winded sermons, and Editors into writing col
umn-long articles when their entire substance
could have been condensed into a Eingle par
agraph. It is by cultivating this art that Henry
Ward Beecher has achieved his present success a
success which is rarely attained by men having no
more brains than bi. In Philadelphia there is just
such another person, except in point of abolition
ism Rey. Dr. B . Dr. B was coming
down Chestnut etreet the other day, dressed in his

him: "Sir, can vou tell me how to find the Sher

the doctor walked on hs calmly aa though he had
just partaken of the Communion, leaving his ques
tiouer to stand gapiDg upon the sidewalk. The
latter wns a etrangertrom Pittsburg named Miles.
As soon as Mih'S regained his wits, which had
been scattered by this etrance reply, he (allowed
and overtook the doctor. Having done eo he hur
ried on to th t. Lawrence Ilottl, at which he
staid, and called mine host Campbell to the front
door just as Dr. B rame by. "Who is that
man, Camptiel ?" "l'hat? Why that's the Rev.
Dr. B ." The d 1 it is 1" "Certainly; why
do you d iubt ii? You should hear him preach."
''Is he some in tlie pulpit?" "Yes, indeed tell
you more truths than you could get outof any for
ty other meii'd sermons boiled into oue." "By
thunder, old feller," faid Miles, "I believe if. I
asked him Low to find the Sheriff's office. You
see, I had hOine papers to get there; well, I didn't
exaetlv know where it was, and how to pet to it,
and -o I asked him." "Aud h"a told you?" "Not iu

PittaburiMT said no more at that time, but he went
down to Bailey's and ordered a solid feilver cup,
richly chased, as a present to the reverend gentle
man, and on it was inferibed, "To Rev. Dr. B n,

meetings lave Lten lately held by the planters
of Waehii!iton county, to consider and dis
cuss the rroject ef slipping cotton direct to
Liverpool. At the last tneetiLg, it was pro
poed that a practical experiment should be
made by a nuincer of the plinters, 'ten tr

by the 20lh inst., from ten to fifteen bales of
cottou each to Savannah, to be shipped by h
common facter (Messrs. Evans, Hakui Si Uo,)

MORRIS & WILLIS'S
HOME JOURNAL FOR 1S5?.
riELISnED WEEKLY ATTWO DOLLARS A YEAR.
THE FIRST NCMBKR CF THK NFW 8Kk:iS WILL BE ISSUED ON Tn
FIRST Or JANCART NEXT.
ThrHoms Journal has becone universal. There are
few families of cultirat d hnbits (few of those who seek
lo enliven and make home the most intelligent and at
tractive place) who do not now reci ive it. It is read, we
believe, wherever run the gold threads of domestic hap
piness and true moral refinement, which are woven so
thickly into the stronger and coarser web of our country's
industry and energetic prosperiiy. The Home Journal is
the speaker to the hearts of this busy nation, in the hours
given to happiness and relaxation.
The first number of the new series will be issued on the
first of January next. New tub crihers can le sifpplied
from that date ; but immediate appl;cation will be neces
sary for such as desire to begin at the begirning. A home
isharily complete, we think e may safely venture to say
without the Home Journal, which, besides being a chroni
cle of the times, abounds in intelligence deig ied to en
liven an American Home. Its editors (Geo. V. Morris and
N. P. Willis) devote their entire time, skill and experience,
to the task of giv ing, each week, everything worth know
ing. They particularly keep an eye on all the whims and
novelties of the day. The utmost pains are taken to pre
sent the faets and outlines of all news. In the literary
depar: raent, we aim at sketches and readable criticism,
and in our condensailons cf the productions of the va-t
newspaper orldcf Europe, we mdeavor to avoid the
tiresome and the local, and trantfer to our columns the
pick of English information and brilliancy, while we endea
vor to felect with a true sense of ture morals, true wit,
and genuine humor.
The new feature for the comiDgyear isone that we have
long thought of presenting to our readers the Corr'S
pondknck of Jour very brillitint icemen who tenf us reju
Itnly the Gossip or thk Gay World. We hae prudued
exceedingly the keeping of these most readable matters to
ourselves feeling certain that it was precisely the Socitty
gossip, which our fucscriber required as effervescence to
tlie otherwise brtirming cup and, wi'h some difficulty,
we have obtained tl e c msent of our fair correspondents
It was only on one condition however that the invtmnittt,
for each, should be strictly pre-erved. We airreed 10 this;
but, as it was important to distinguish between their several
Let'era,e ventured to suggest nonisde plume, such we
thought would be somewhat descnpiive of their several
veins of humor. Thn four laiiies will therelore be intro

The d:s":nFu'l. d aut!.ores, Mrs. Cowden Clarke,
has given an analytical diMjui.-i Hon of the most notf d wo
men that have t'Kurd in the i rid Irom the j ear 6'.' B C,
down to the preenl tinie. hl.e says in her pief.iee: It ia
Interesting to con-ider the individuality niarkif ge.ich,and
the curious varety cf refpective distinction which has sei
tho?e per.-onaf.es apart as either renowt ed or notorious,
above ti e ordinary range of t! oir tis eihood.
Ihey are not so much types cf a class f women, as t pes
of pai ici.lar womanly attributes; and far from Them all be-
ng lcoktd upon as modes they are In some instances to
be beheld as beacons of warning. With this I orne in mind
it affords a facinating study to contemplate a lonn like
Cleopatra that "Serpent of Old Nile," she who held Mark
Antony's heart in thrall, ar.d "imu'tM 1 im in her strong
toil of grace," or a woman like Isabel!, of Catile, ho was
Tirtuous as she was wise, mode-t as she w as illustrious.
The drawings for this work were executed by the
same artist who desig-.ed !he tplendid work entitled "Wo
men of the Iiible," the silei f which has beeu so large.
This work is even more splendid, engraved on steel by the
flr-t artists . The six- is the same as the republican Court
of Washing' on.
