la 01 ax A. At a ratification meeting, held at Kushville,
Indiana. >11 the 25th ultimo, to mtify the nominations
recently made by the State convention, Hon J L. Jtobln?on
delivered an address 'flic nominations were duly {
ratified. and a resolution adopted condemning, "in unqualified
teuroi," the pro|Mjec?l State eonventiou of the
22>l hint ihe following resolution was also adopted :
lle*ilini, 'l'hat, concerning Kaiixo* utfuiix, we ugree with
the I'resident in his late annual message that th?y have
already occupied quite too large a share of public attentiuu,
and that the sooner Kansas is admitted into the
I'nion as a State the lietter for the (leace of the Territory
and of the country at large, and we have lull confidence
in Mr Buchanan and his constitutional advisers on this
subject ; we have no freedom-shrieks" to furnish the
Mack republican enemy in this behalf.
Speaking of the investigations into certain frauds in
1111 . in i Urol I > i s othce oi tin- city ol New Vork, now in
iouiw) of investigation in that city, the Herald says :
1'herc is one very striking circumstance in connexion
with all these charges of fraud, ami that is, that in 110
single instance lias the late mayor, who won asserted to
t? the father ot all the corruptions, theft, and wicked
inns of which this city whs the unfortunate victim, been
implicated Neither in the scrutinies of the investigating
committees, the mysterious developments of the ixrraptroller's
department, nor the charge* and counter-charges
oft'onover anil Devlin, has a |>articleof anytliing like an
imputation on the pnblir integrity of Fernando Wood appealed.
lire t rut It is, an we have already stated, the miaiuuued
tree-State" men of Kansas did not, and do not now,
want the slavery question settled They want it kept |
open till the presidential election in I860., and to keep it
open they would trample under foot all the constitutions j
ami .11 the laws In the universe. They have defied the |
law, from the beginning, aud they will defy them to I
the end If they can get the constitution referred I nick
to them, they will kick it about from year to year, anil
use every exertion to keep tiro slavery question open for
agitation throughout the North. The only chance for !
spoody peace lies irr the immediate admission of Kansas 1
imder the constitution the has lawfully formed. If that ;
cord it nt ion does not imbody the will of the people, the :
first State legislature that assembles can call a convention
to amend it, und the slavery clause, or any other
provision that does not meet the sanction <>f tire people,
can ho stricken out. If desired by the people, u new
loustitution, from beginning to cud, can be formed in
loss than three months after the admission of the State,
.lust as soon as Kansas shall be admitted, so soon will
ibis ilaugerous agitation cease ; and just as long us Kaunas
is kept out, so long will the nation's ears be split w ith
shrieks for freedom." All who want, speedy (reave
should go with the administration for the immediate admission
of Kansas ; and whatever timid politicians may
,lu, the bone and sinew of the democratic party of Pennsylvania
trill go with the administration on this question.

Tue Rraction on Ijccomptov.?We are glad to note a
healthy reaction in the public mind relative to the Leoompton
constitution. Gradually, in the face of all misrepresentations.
is tire fact working itself into the public
mind that the udmission of Kansas under that instrument
is the shortest method of settling the unhappy existing
difficulties. Tire people see that the Lecompton constitution
gives to the people of Kansas control of the affairs of
Kansas, and, thinking that stich a consummation is the
dire ot all others most devoutly to be wished, arc beginning
to wonder why it should lie apposed and delayed. We
predict now that in six months after Lecompton goes
through Congress, as we are sure it will go through, it
will lie universally recognised as one of the wisest measures
that were ever adopted by that Ixxly
(Steubenville {<).) Union
At a meeting of the democracy of Mecklenburg county,
North Carolina, to apjsiint delegates to a State democratic
convention, the following resolutions were adopted:
Jtetolved, That we eudorsu the course of our representative
in Congress, Hon. Burton Cntige, as well us that of
the entire democratic delegation from this Stale.
Resolved, That the administration of James Buchanan
ingots our hearty endorsement; that he has been tried
aud not found wanting ; and that, especially, we will
stand by tub man who stands by the Lecompton conMituHon.
We find in the " Kansas Crusader of Freedom," published
at Doniphan, Kansas Territory, by James ttedpatli,
the following letter. Hie Crusader is one of the most
ultra papers in the Territory, ami lielongs to the nonvoting
party :
Washington, D. C. Jan. 1, 1858.
My drab sib : Your favor of the 22d has just been re
my en. iou did well on the election any. Uur triends
are delighted at the exhibition of spirit made by our )>eo
pie on that occasion. It augurs wtill for the protection of
tlie ballot-box on the 4th. o e o o
In my opinion, the President ban thepowtr to pass this
measure. The Senate is yet doubtful, but in the House
lie has 40 majority on any question of slavery ; that is,
24 democrats, and lfi southern know-nothings, who are
democratic on the slavery issue?making in all 40. Many
northern democrats have bolted, and more will follow,
but I doubt if enough do to break down the measure.
In the event of this infantum conclusion, 1 think there
will lie no use of my remaining hrrt any longer. 1 shall,
therefore, unless advised to the contrary, return home
to take my lot with the people on the passage of this
measure. Much depends on the 4th inst. If you can
overwhelm this constitution on that occasion, it will help j
us materially. It is important to have a great vote. I
inquired yesterday at the Indian oftice touching the Delaware
lands. They say nothing is at present on foot in
tliat direction, but that the return of Gen. Denver is expected
to bring some information, &c. I have sent you
copies of Douglas and Cox's speeches, us u specimen of
" the stampede" that is taking place from the democratic
camp. Let me hear from you often.

The editor of the Richmond Enquirer ha* seen in the

in satisfactorily performing the duties of his office. His

ceu. is conceived in a very lieautil'iilspirit, and furnishes

ntier. He says :
I am liappv to state that the difficulties among some
rtions of the people, consequent upon the change in
r government under the new constitution, are rapidlv
appearing, and, with the exception of a few counties,
officers were all elected at the reecnt election. 1 rest
that there was a failure in any county. The general
luicil did their duty in providing promptly for the first
dsaiun on the part of the people to attend the election,
rust their second failure in a few counties will not
isc any inconvenience to the citizens thereof, and tliat
ey will patiently await the time when the proper auBrity
can assist thein to remedy the failure. The genii
council have provided the manner of taking the vote
the next regular election in August, 1x59, on such
anges in the constitution as were asked for by the
uple on Red river, and this should satisfy every one.

dried, step by step they had to recede until forced to
ik quiet ami a home in the land they now hold. The
i>le tells us that a house divided against itself is bound

We fiud the following letter in the St. Louis Republi
i nf the 30th ult.:
Wbstpobt, January 2, 18J8.
There exist s in Kansas Territory si branch of the Mor>n
Douites. They are principally Mormons and frccren?;
being compactly organized, ami having iutiucn1
members, they rule the destinies ami tlx the policy of
s free-State party of Kansas. They are making use of
[ inbred prejudices of people from the free States to
jpagatc their nefarious doctrines and accomplish their
asoitable and immoral designs.
That such an organisation exists there can be but little
ubt, and that they are now playing the desperate game
which they are banded together facts go to show.
A few days ago a fine hotel, which cost four thousand
liars, was burned at Islington, Johnson county. 'J'he
ivn is pro-slavery, and the house was owned by a provery
man?Col. S. L. McKinny, of this place. About
s same time a uumlter of cabins belonging to members
the democratic party were burned.
Last week an Indian by the name of Tally was shot,
body of Danites. who had tieen stealing his timber and
terwise trespassing on his laud, gave him gpotlce to
,ve, as they did Henry Koohtsu: uud Oary, Dutch Henry
1 others, whom they murdered. Sot long after notice
leave his own land liad been served nil this Shawnee
wag shot in an altercation with the trespassers.
Last night the Lipscomb House, at New Santa Fe, in
ssouri, adjoining Oxford, in Kansas, was burned down,
l'o-day a gentleman named Stofer was shot oti the
;liway. It is said that he wag travelling in a coach,
t far from Wyandotte, when lie was overtaken or met
some Don I ten. They asked his name : and, on learn
5 it, one of them shot Stofer in the month, cutting
ay part of the jaw and half of the tongue. Stofer
i democratic member elect from Leavenworth counJim
Lane, as chief of the Danites, lias ordered every
mocratic member elected to be hung, shot, or maimed.
(Jeneral Calhoun whose life has been threatened, was
be occoni|ianiod, from some point in the Territory toy
to Kansas city by an aruied escort. He is expected
re to-morrow.
Such is the effect of Lane free-lovelsm and Danite
unionism upon fair Kansas. What is to be the final
ult (Jod only knows. These are not idle rumors, but
ts ; and they are sufficient to show that unless govuncnt
speedily applies a remedy for the evil conseences
of tlieRe two, which are the worst ion* that aft
humanity, civil war must lie the consequence. Aliiigh
this law party of Kansas and its friends are convative
and forbearing, yet tlie time may come when

The same class of men (says the Rochester Union and
Ivertiscr) who now predict woes unutterable in case the
ommeiijatlons of the President are adopted by Con;ss
are the same prophets of ruin and disaster who have
ofteq mode the same predictions in regard to the adop>n
of democratic measures. The sume dire forebodings,
in the same sources, preceded the election of Qeneral
.ksoii, the overthrow of the United States Hank, the
option of the sub-treasury, the acquisition of Texas, the
mage of the tariff of 1846, and numerous other meas" H,
which the event has always shown to be baseless

Re-nAved, That we most respectfully request the often- j
lion of Congress to a memorial from thi* association, |
asking from the hands of tiie ia*t Congress a bank char
ter with such restrictions as they might deem necessary, ;
and which are now upon tiie tiles of the Senate.
RestUved, Tluit it is the opinion of this association that
the present hanks of this District have been of great assistance
to the citizens in tlu-ir business transactions, and j
we res[)octfully ask that they he rechartcred.
Rf*Jt*d, lliat a copy of the above resolutions, proper- I
ly attested, I*' transmitted to tiie lronorablu chairman of
the District OomuUtiSi, the honorable Messrs. Hunter
and Must hi, of Virginia, the Hon. Messrs. l'earce and
Konnedy, of Maryland, witii a request that they use their
influence to detent the bill rejsirted by the Hon. Mr. .Slidell.
A lengthy and discursive speech was made by Mr.
1'erry, with very slight bearing on tire question before the
association, wearying the listeners for an hour and a half.
Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Wall followed in brief speeches.
Mr. Dodson took this occasion to say that he was not the
author of the resolutions introduced at the lust meeting.
Mr. Wall considered that |wrt of Mr. Slidell's bill pro- j
hibiting the circulation of lunik notes in the District of u j
denomination smaller than lifty dollars as striking out !
ot' circulation six millions of money, and at least $250,000 j
of actual capital in Virginia and Maryland bank notes.
The resolutions were adopted, and the association adjourned
at lOj o'clock.
Smithsonian Institution.?Dr. Wynne, of New York,
delivered lust evening the lecture which was postponed
from Monday night on account of the storm. This lecture
was more pructicul than many. Whether from that
cause, or from some other, it was less numerously attended
than is usual. Its immediate subject was "the iuthi- j
ence of occupations upon health," especially with refer- j
eucc to the probabilities of insurance uud provident soci- I
eties. The lecturer exhibited an immense array of figures,
showing the averages of life among the members of ;
benefit societies in Kngland, from which it apjsNirs (although
contrary to the generally-received opinion) that
those engaged in industrial pursuits have a greater length
of days than the privileged or idle classes. Taking an
average of fourteen yean from the records of Mussachu- !
OiiHu K/? arro of whloV. J!_ t- fli "
.... .? ..i.nii aKnuiiiiiiiMi ni? is in ; gentlemen
at <>.'!; clergymen, '56; blacksmiths, 51; butchers and
carpenters, 49 ; sailors, 45 ; painters, 39 ; and printers, |
36. Farmers have, therefore, an advantage of fifteen or !
twenty years over printers. With this melancholy fact !
staring him in the true, how can any one have the heart j
to neglect paying for his paper?
Home curious facta were adduced in relation to mar- j
riages. The greatest numlier of matrimonial engage- j
incutsoccur, the world over, lietween the ages of twenty |
and twenty-five From the last-named age a lady's j
ehanees diminish rapidly, until, at thirty, statisticians ]
s ly (hnt we ean't lielicve it) her chance* for wedlock are j
hut one In ten. The time of the year has much to do j
with It. Massachusetts records testify that the fewest j
marriages are committed in March, and the greatest uutu- j
lier in November, which latter circumstance is attributed j
to the hallowing influence of thanksgiving. In Ken- !
tucky, on the contrary, where they have less to be (hank- j
ful for, or at least where thanksgiving figures less prominently
among their institutions, the greatest number of 1
celebrations is in the month of December. ('hristmas is
observed to have a hymeneal effect at the South. Kentuckinns
marry earlier than New Euglanders, some tive
years or so, according to the most abstruse calculations.
Many other statistics were brought forward to demonstrate
tliat health and long life are the result of fixed
laws ; and those laws should lie carefully pondered by
the framers and members of provident associations.

commenced business as u butcher by purchasing a hog, ;
which he killed and carried to market on a wheelbarrow.
Since then, until within a year or two, he has been the
leading butcher of the metro|iolig, and amassed u large
fortune, u portion of which he invested in the purchase
I of several valuable fishing-landings on the Potomac. He !
