MHL- ? -*"1* ? I. i/'fc II' Ml 1 V%g??MINOTOJ*i MONDAT AFTERNOON, DECEMBER 1. 4^-Hour ?/ Four, p. j^y-For the Lift of Arrivalt, see third page. Cou|rH?. Senate.?After an appropriate prayer by Dr. Butler, the credentials of the Hon. Hamilton Fish, of New York; Benjamin Wade, of Ohio ; Robert F. Stockton, of New Jersey ; Charles J. James, of Rhode Island; Henry S. Qeyer, of Missouri; and Charles Sumner, of Massachu setts, Senators elcctfor six years from the 4th of Maroh last, were severally presented, and Messrs. Fish, Wade, James, Qeyer, and Sum ner were sworn in. Mr. Morton presented the certificate of the Governor of Florida of the election of the Hon. S. R. Mallory; also a copy of the Journal of the Legislature, containing the proceedings of the election, which record, it was maintained by Mr. Yulee, entitled him to a Beat. After a long debate, in whioh Messrs. Clay, Foote, and Hale maintained that Mr. Mallory, having the Governor's certificate, should be sworn, and Messrs. Seward, Berrien and Mason the con trary, the Hon. Stephen R. Mallory was sworn in; and the contesting papers were referred to ? select committee of five Senators. Mr. Gwin gave notice of a number of bills relating to California. Mr. Foots gave notice of a joint resolution providing for the reception and entertainment of Louis Kossuth, governor of Hungary. After adopting the usual orders, the Senate adjourned. Housh op Representatives.?The roll was called, and 213 members answered to their names. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, moved to proceed to the election of a Speaker viva voce, and nom inated Linn Boyd, remarking that he would vote for him because he was a true and tried Democrat and a tru6 Compromise man. Mr. Cartter would vote for him because he was the candidate of the Democratic caucus. Mr. Campbkll, of Ohio, nominated Thaddeus Stevens, and said he was as pure a friend to the Union as any man. Mr. Brooks spoke of the Whigs having agreed this morning to a Compromise resolu tion, which the Democratic caucus had refused to do; whereupon a spirited debate arose, in volving the course of the Whig and Democratic parties on the subject of the Compromise mea sures. Mr. Giddings, in conclusion, said that in less than sixty days every gentleman would have an opportunity to give his views, and urged an organization forthwith. The House then proceeded to an election, and Linn Botd received 118 votes out of 212. Eighteen or nineteen other persons were voted for. The Speaker was then conducted to the chair and made a short and appropriate speech. At 2 o'clock the members are being sworn in. Later.?Colonel Forney is elected Clerk of the House, having received 129 votes; and the following officers are elected by resolution, viz: Mr. McKnew, Doorkeeper; Mr. Glossbrenner, Sergeant-at-arms; and Mr. Johnston, Postmas ter. No Chaplain has been elected. A joint committee was appointed to wait on the President of the United States, and the Message will beyond a doubt be delivered at noon tomorrow. The Hoyse adjourned at a quarter before 4 J o'clock. Caaensing. We refer to our first page for remarks con cerning the Democratic caucus. The Whigs?only thirty in number, as wo are informed, met at 9? o'clock this morning, and adopted the Compromise platform, we know not how unanimously. Sooth Carolina Legislation.?A telegra phic despatch from Charleston, S. C., dated the 28th ultimo, states that a bill was before the Legislature of that State proposing to pre vent the citizens of the variouB States in which the action of the Fugitive Slave Law has been obstructed, from using the courts of South Car olina to collect debts. We feel assured that of many States, equally as desirous as South Carolina to witness the enforcement of the Fu gitive Law, and all others required by the con stitution, none will be found to approve of so ab surd a prohibition as that proposed. We do not imagine, however, that South Carolina her self can ever be induced to adept it. Editorial Banquet to Kossuth.?The prep arations for this affair, by the press of New York, are being duly made. The Mirror under stands it to be the intention to make the ban quet perfectly unique affair, by confining it ' to the profession. The President and his Cab ' inet will be invited, also the Governor of the ' State, General Scott, Captain Long, of the 4 Mississippi, and the Mayor of the city. These, ' with Kossuth and three or four in his suite, | ' will oover the invitations. There is already a ' strong pressure for tickets from the outside, 1 ' as high as $100 having been offered for a ' single ticket. But the members of the press ? must be served first." " *A>e world is governed too much." The aphorism is true, and we should study it well. Our republic is very large, and has in terests as diversified as it has apparent differ ences in climate, soil, agricultural productions, and psouHat-itiea in the condition of its society. In the attempt to govern too much lies the greatest danger before as. The tenure of our Union and its harmony are to be determined by the degree of consideration this saying re ceives. We may exist and prosper by leaving undisturbed those things upon which general agreement is impracticable; but once declare them to be essentials, and dangers arise. A Smash.?Mr. J. B. Wilson's horse ran off this afternoon, with his dray, on the Avenue, and came afoul of Mr. Dant's hack, No. 40, from which it tore the hind wheels, and whioh was otherwise considerably damaged. Nobody hurt. The reprint of the Edinburgh Revieto for October is before us; also, the International for Deoember. These are books full of interest, of sterling merit, and published at low rates. We heartily oommend them to public favor. Taylor ft Maury have them for sale Mississippi?Tun Union.?The State oou- J ten turn of Mississippi,, vhioh recently asaem bled at Jackson, passed resolutions declaring that the people of - Mississippi abide by the se ries of measures sanctioned by Congress in I860, and usually known as the Compromise; they also declare the opinion of the convention that the people of Mississippi will abide by the Union as it is, and by the constitution of the United States without amendment. A declara tion equally strong is put upon record againBt the pretended right of secession on the part of a State?affirming that such a principle is sub versive of the Union, and involving in its effects a civil war. " Thus it is," the Baltimore American truth fully remarks, 14 that the integrity of the Union, ' wheresoever the question is brought to issue, ' rises paramount above all other considerations; ' and the American people in every quarter, ' wherever the occasion is offered, pronounce ? their judgment against the political suicide | < which Disunion or Secession would imply. ' Let us make up our minds, onoe for all, that ? we are to live together as one people; and ? that when the time comes (which we trust < never will comq) that we cannot so live, it will ' matter but little to the world whether we ex 4 ist at all." The National Intklliuknckr.?This vener able journal appears before us this morning with its armor newly burnished for the opening Congressional campaign. \ We quote from its columns : " If, at the opening of each session of Con ' gress, and especially of each new Congress, ' we have regarded with complacency the con ' tinued triumph of representative government, ? we may honestly exult in the now recurring ' evidence of the strength of this Union, when ' it is accompanied with such proofs as we have ' lately had of its still firm hold in the heart of ' the people. All that the friends of the Con 4 stitution have now to ask of the Senators and ' Representatives in Congress is, that, adhering ? to the established institutions and policy of ' this Government, they shall faithfully reflect < the sentiments and the affections of their con ' stituents." We unite heartily in this demand upon the statesmen and patriots now assembled at the capitol; and we rejoice that the experienced, able, wise and benevolent conductors of the Intelligencer are still among us to aid by their counsels the important legislation of our coun try. Many years and many changes have passed over this nation since they entered upon their present field of honorable toil, and many trials and temptations have surrounded them; yet has their good name never been successfully impeached, nor their dignity, magnanimity, truth and justice obscured, even amid the se verest conflicts in which they have been forced to engage. Their present influence, and the bright future that we hope is still before them, and their own glorious record of the paBt, are regarded with pride and admiration by their countrymen, and with pleasure that knows no alloy, save the unwelcome reflection that, in the usual course of nature, ere many more years shall pass away they may cease to adorn their exalted position. The star that enlivens the evening of their days, however, is not less beau I tiful than was the splendor of their noonday sun; and, In its final descent, the halo that shall encircle it will linger long in a nation's l memory, and perpetuate forever the well-mer ited respect and affection of a grateful people. Monuments may be erected to our warriors and statesmen, and poets may adorn their graves with fancy-wove garlands; but the pen that has for long, long years enlightened and guided the mind of a people has erected its own mon ument, and one that will exist in beauty when every column of granite or marble shall have crumbled and perished away. Criminal Court* The Criminal Court for the District of Colum bia this morning commenced its December term. There are many cases on the docket, including the United States vt.

The steamship Alabama arrived at New Or leans on Friday morning laat, in nine days from San Juau de Nicaragua," with 240 paaeeugers, and news from San Francisoo to November 1 two weeks later than previous advices. It was brought down by the steamer Pacific, from San Francisco. (\Tst "UrtlinK inteUi?eno? by this arrival (if true) is the murder of eleven of the passen gen| and crew of the New York clipper ship Challenge, by the captain and mates of the ves sel. Ihis deed, it is said, had excited a thrill of horror, and had caused the most intense ex citement throughout San Franoisoo. The mates had been arrested by the authorities, but the captain had succeeded in making his escape. V lgilant efforts had been mode to secure his ar rest It is stated that ten of the crew of the Chal lenge had died on the passage, and six more were taken to the hospital in a dreadful condi tion, in consequence of the treatment received from Captain Waterman on board the ship. Passengers by the Alabama report that the shipments of gold by the Bteamers of the 1st instant would reach nearly three millions of dollars, a large portion of which would go for ward by the Oregon. The steamers Cherokee and Prometheus had arrived at San J uan de Nicaragua. The steamer Paoific arrived at San Juan del Sud on the 16th, with 490 passengers, many of whom came by the Alabama, the entire time of travel between San Francisco and New Orleans being 27} days. Col. J. W. Barbour, U. S. Indian Commis sioner, arrived in the Pacific, having succeeded in making treaties with forty tribes of Indians, who have hitherto been at open war with the whites. The disturbances and outrages in the Indian country have ceased. ? Tj 6 .a?counts ft"0? mines say that the yield of the precious metals shows no abatement Dut rather an increase. The rainy season had begun to make its ap pearance. r In the markets, during the past fortnight, a fair amount of business has been transacted, and the tone of trade generally is good. Heal estate continues in demand at advanced rates. State atocks are firmer, with an active demand. Gold dust commands $17 per ounce for clean parcels. Another Arrival. * ork, Nov. 30.?The steamer Cherokee, with full California advices, (but to the same f xt ? f4 of November, as by the Alabama, at New Orleans,) arrived here at a late hour last night. She brings three hundred passen gers and upwards of $2,600,000 in gold. The convention for the division of California met at Santa Barbara on the j1 Only four counties were repre sented, and but thirty-one delegates wer? pre sent. ihe convention adopted a resolution proposing the line of division, which would in clude in the southern section the counties of aan Diego, Los Angelos, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and about half of Mari posa, which is two-fifths of the entire area of the btate. A committee was appointed to pre pare an address on the subject to be presented to the legislature. A convention was also in session in San Fran cisco for a division of the State. Nearly all the southern counties were represented, and reso lutions were passed in favor of division, after a considerable opposition as to the manner in which it should be effected. The terrible tragedy on board the ship Chal lenge, resulting in the murder of ten of the crew, is still enveloped in mystery. The ex citement at the wharf, when the vessel arrived at San Francisco, was very great, and an at tempt was made to lynch the oaptain and mate, both of whom, however, escaped. A reward of *600 was offered for their arrest. It was ru mored, when the steamer sailed, that the cap tain had surrendered himself. California was generally tranquil, and the Vigilance Committees were becoming extinct. Ihe Indians on tho borders were quiet, but it was rumored that hostilities had broken out among three tribes on the Lower Colorado Great discoveries of gold had been made on Queen Charlotte's Island, off the coast of Bri tish Oregon. Trade with Oregon and the Sandwich Islands was rapidly increasing. The accounts from the mines were of the most brilliant character. Quartz mining at ?cts considerable attention. The estimated on?rw2! gS duurir? tb? present ?ear is *'5, 000,000. Ihe health of the miners was good. Ihe ship Dodalus, sent by the British Gov ernment in search of Sir John Franklin, had arrived at San Francisco without discovering any traces of his expedition. The storeship Southampton arrived at San r rancisco on the 18th of October. From Orboon.?Accounts from Oregon state that the immigrants, with the exception of about fifty wagons, were all in. They we're unusuallv healthy, and in excellent spirits. The miners were reaping a fair reward. Flouring mills are in process of erection at Portland and Milwaukie. Business generally was active. From the Isthmus.?The dates from Panama aro to Novembor 18. The rainy season was nearly over. 'flic railroad had been completed from Navy bay to a point three miles this side of Gature and the cars are now running daily. Difficulties at San Juan.?Accounts from San Juan del Sud represent everything as in a state of anarchy and confusion. Gen. Munoz has collected a large force, with a supply of arms and ammunition, and had determined to prevent the landing of passengers by Vander bilt's line. About 100 Americans had joined Munoz. Much sickness prevailed at San Juan. Pro visions were scarce and high, and business dull. % - ? Tue Treason Case.?-The district court at Philadelphia appears to be progressing well with the case of Hanaway. Five witnesses were examined on Saturday morning, among whom were Dickenson Gorsuch, the son of the gentle man who was killed, and who was badly wound ed himself; Joshua Gorsuch, cousirf of the do ceased; Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hutchinson all of whom accompanied Mr. Gorsuch to Lancaster county, in pursuit of the fugitives. Their tes-1 timony establishes the fact that the prisoner Hanaway was early on tho ground, after the ?ounding of the horn, and was^mmedintely fol lowed by a band of negroes ; that he refused to assist in the arrest of the slaves, and that his presence gave encouragement to them, as shown by the fact that the firing commenced from the house of Parker, as soon as those within saw him in the lane. Turku, th* Vocamst.?This gentleman, who is to appear to-night before our friends of Georgetown, will to-morrow night appear at Canui't, and sing a number of his favorite bal lads.

JKf J ust received and for sale by J. B. WILSON, nov 26?6t Late firm of Morsell A Wilson. CIBCULAB. Washington, Augtul 1,1861. OIR: After consulting many person* interested In the O principal Railroad* in the United States, the under signed propose to establish agencies in this city and in New York, for the purpose of collecting full and authen tic Railroad statistics and such other information as will enable them to serve persons desiring to invest In Rail road securities, or to procure information of any matter* connected with the construction and administration of llailroad*. They also propose, especially, to urge upon Congress a modification of tho laws relating, to contracts for carrying the mail, so as to authorize the Post Office Department to contract for the perpetual use of Railroads, and, instead of paying, as now, quarterly on contracts for four year*, to advance In five per cent bonds of the United State*, chargeable upon the revenues of the Post Office Department, an amount, the interest upon which at 6 per cent, would equal the payments now mado. The Government now pays $.100 per mile for carrying the mail on first-class Railroads. This is 6 per cent, on $6,000. The undersigned would urge that, Instead of pay ing $300 a mile, per annum, the Department should de liver, on a contract In perpetuity, five $1,000 bonds, hearing an Interest of five per centum. At this rate the charge upon the Department would be reduced from $300 to $260 a mile, per annum, and the $60 a mile saved would create a sinking fund, which will, In a few years, pay off the bonds, and give the use of such roads forever thereafter free of all charge; thereby effeotlng a vast saving 011 the present annual expenditures of the Post Office Department, and a consequent reduction of the rates of postage. The effect will be no less advantageous to Railroad com panies than to the Government. For Instance, such a contract would give to the Baltimore aud Ohio Railroad Company more than $2,000,000, which would enable that company to complete Its road at an early day, and greatly Increase Its business and profits. But to meet otyections and Impress the public mind with a proper sense of tho benefits to result from this measure will require concert of action and continued active effort, through tho press and otherwise. The un dersigned tender their services to your oompany, expect ing a reasonable compensation, partly contingent upon the success of tho measure; and respectfully suggest the propriety of your sendlog one or more delegates to this city, on the first Wednesday In December next, to confer with delegate* from other Railroad companies, as to the details of the proposed arrangement and the best mode of bringing the subject before Congress. Should it be your pleasure to accept of our services In this matter, we will promptly attend to all other business, which yon, or your Oompany, may have with the Post Office Department, or other branch of the Government. Hoping to hear from yon at your earliest oonvenlenoe, we are, respectfully, your otiedlent servants, DUFF GRKF.N. nor 20?tf BEN. E. GREEN.
