neeotiau.—Wo. T. A TRIP TO PARId. Editors Minn ksotian— Having concluded to extend my journey to Paris, I took the uecessary steps to get my passport, without which you cannot travel in any of the coun tries of Europe, with the exception of Eng land. Iu the first place, I went to the office of the U. S. Ambassador, No. 24, Portland Place. This is iu a rather aristocratic part of London, and the way the houses are num bered is a caution, it is something after this style : 71, G 2, 1,2, 13, 14, 30, and so on up to 24. On iny gaining aduiissiou, 1 found three or four Americans iu waiting for vari ous purposes, and I must say that / think the Americans cure the most tjcutlcuuiidy in their ways and actions of any jtojde 1 came across', they arc independent iu their bearing, and free and easy iu their manner, whereas most of the upper class of Lnglish are haughty and reserved, until you get to be intimate with them and then it wears off in a measure. After 1 got my passport, which is given free and contained a thorough description of my person, including my height, age, color of mv hair aud eyes, shape of my nose aud mouth, Ac., lie., 1 was told in order to save some trouble. I had better get it vised in London, as 1 should have to get it done there or at the lirsi port I landed in France. 1 therefore went to the office of the French Consul, who-o charge for visiny (which is merely stampiug it) was $1.02. This is one of the many ways of fleecing travellers. 1 took the cars at Loudon for Folkestone, it was a very tiue morning when I was at the latter place, aud the coast of France was to be seen quite plain with the naked eye. The distance across is about tweuty-five miles, or about 25 hours voyage in the steamships that ply across. I landed at Bologne. On our arrival all the passengers weie conducted to the Custom House through a path made by the officers holding ropes, so that none could escape without the onleni of Custom House scrutiny. In the Custom House the passengers have to produce their passport, which is handed to a clerk who copies a part of it. and then it is returned to the owner. The baggage is thoroughly examined. The appearance of the houses in Bologne are much more like the houses in the United States than those in Eugland. The wharves here are also very wide aud well built; the English 1 mguage is spoken at nearly all the hotels. The railroad depot here is a very tine building; 1 think it is built of glass and iron: one end is fitted up as a restaurant, and one thing very noticeable is, to see wine in such general use—almost every one that sits down gets a bottle. On entering the cars. I found them built in the same style as the Lnglish cars, with the doors of entrance at the side. The second-class cars are much better than the English—being altogether more roomy—with places to hang up a car pet bag. hat or umbrella. The sets and backs are also cushioned, but covered with common t eking. 1 observed that many of the French ladies wear caps instead of bonnets. Some of the female passengers went from Bologne to I’aris. a distance of ISO miles without bon nets, and I afterwards found it was quite com mon to do so, especially among the poorer class of females, and I should judge from what I have seen since, that more than one half of the French females never wear bon uets. Caps a.o in general use among the .. ang as well the old, although many ol the former are gay and have them fixed c* r with ribbons. Tie country between Bologne and Paris not near so fine or so well cultivated as in England, and the houses as a general thing have not so comfortable appearance, and I noticed that there are a great many wind mills all through that part of the country I have been. Paris is built on a very level part of the country, and has therefore re- j quired but litt'e grading, and I think taking I it altogether, it is the prettiest city I was ! ever in. The houses are built very uniform, the streets are pretty wide, with some splen did sidewalks, and splendid public walks and carriage drives. At the hotel where I stop ped, I was given to understand that all the waiters could talk English: but some of them put me forcibly in mind of the Irishman’s French, which was this way: Last summer Prince De Joinville was on a tour through Great Britain and Ireland, and at one of the cities in the latter, a deputation of the city authorities waited on him, and as the sheriff had Mattered himself that he could talk French, he was appointed by the deputation t< > welcome the Prince in the French tongue. At the proper time and place he commenced his address, and had been speaking some minutes when the Prince interrupted him, «aid, that unfortunately he did not under stand the Irish language, and as he would be 1 probably expected to make a reply, he should fe>! much ohliged if he would speak it in English, as he understood a little of that lan guage. Thi* was the way some of the wait ers could talk English. The morning after my arrival at the hotel cue of the female waiters come up and ask ed me for my passport. I pulled out the im portant document and handed it to her, at tb*‘ -amc time asking her how long she would keep it, and she replied, “Monsieur can go along with me.” 1 followed her to an of tice in the Hotel, over the door of which was the word “Bureau.” A lady was seated at the desk, and my passport was handed to her. "While opening ; t said, “this passport sys tem is a very great trouble to j ou, Monsieur, but ou see it is uot our fault, a? we are only doing our duty.’’ On opening and reading it she says. “Monsieur G., an American I see.— America must be a tine country, they arc all such gentlemen.” After copying down a part, it was returned to me. The Hotels are kept much after our style, only that many of them only serve up two meals per day, which is dinner and breakfast. The dinner is generally a very good affair, but the other meals are generally taken at the Restaurant or Cafes, which places are very numerous in the city, and in tine weath er most of the people eat and drink out side the restaurants in the open air. The Gabs and Omnibuses are much superior to the English, and the omnibus system I like better than the system practiced in the Uni ted States, as all the lines of Omnibuses con nect with each other, and passengers can go to any part of the city for one fare, even if they have to change busses seven or eight times ; to do this the conductor gives ticke: s called correspondence to such as want to change. Iu the top of each Omnibus is the name of its starting point and its destination, and this is so fixed that its destination al ways appears in front, which I think is very convenient for strangers. When the Omni bus is full on the inside the word “complete” is put up, so that you are always able to tell if there is room without stopping or hailing the driver. One thing that uu American would notice, j would be to see so many soldiers on duty, and lounging around the City. You can see them standing iu groups from three to twelve all over Paris, and they are also on duty at all the Public Buildings, and quite a number of them were dressed in Turkish Costume. I was told that there were near 60,000 sol d.crs on dnty and in the Barracks in Paris at the time I was there. Most of the Barracks and Military Schools is located near the Chomp Mar*. 'lho champ Mars is a very large place nicely laid off, with trees shading the walks, and is used almost solely for Mili tary reviews, &c. The Police of Paris is a fire body of men. They all wear swords and cocked hats, and they are always in groups of three or more, or that is when I saw them. I noticed that they wore the figures of three ships on the skirts of their coats. In many parts of the city there are short streets rooted over with glass. These streets are not used for carts, cabs, &c., hut just for those on foot, and arc of course dry in wet weather. The stores in them are nicely fit ted up, but are chiefly devoted to the sale of fancy articles. In tact all parts of Paris a bound with stores of this kind. In some of the finest streets the second story of the houses projects over the side walks about twelve or fourteen feet and resting on pillars, making it also dry in wet weather, and under these projections are somo of the finest stores in Paris. Mr letter U already longer then I expected, and I shall therefore have to defer the con clusion of iny trip to Pari* uut.il n:y next let *er. Your®, a.c.. E. (t. CoiisrenioMl- Deb>t« on Yaking up llirniuiieauia Bill—A Connection wMh Kansas Iniquity Foreshadowed. Washington, Feb. 1. Sknatk. —Mr. Doolittle presented a peti tion of 97 citizens of the United States, praying that measures be taken for the pur chase of the Hand of Cuba and its annexa tion to this country. Mr. Bigler introduced a joint resolution for the completion and preservation of the digest of the statistics of the mines and man ufactures, takeu at the last census, which was referred. Mr. Collamer introduced a bill to alter the times of holdiug the Circuit and District Courts of Vermont. The consideration of the Army bill was resumed. Mr. Houston opposed it. He said no ne cessity existed for the large standing army in time of peace. At one o’clock the Pacific Railroad bill was called up. it being the special order at that hour. Mr. Davis expressed a hope that the Army bill would not be postponed, as it was of the utmost importance that speedy action should be taken upon it. Mr. Wilson had an amendment to offer, and wished to have an opportunity to have it printed. Mr. Stewart argued a question of order, maintaining that the Army bill being un finished business had propriety over all spe cial orders. Mr. Stewart trusted that by unanimous consent the gentleman from Texas would be allowed to proceed, as it was very unpleasant to Ikj cut oil' In the midst of one’s remarks. This was agreed to. Mr. Houston resumed, aud advocated the raising of volunteers to meet all necessary emergencies, saying that they were no more expensive than regular troops, decidedly more peaceable. Mr. Wilson gave notice of an amendment of the army bill in the form of a substitute, to the effect the President, for the purpose of enforcing the laws of the United States, maintaining peace with the Indian tribes, and protecting citizens in the routes of emigration to Utah, to be employed only iu said Terri tory, be authorized to call for aud accept the services of volunteers, uot exceeding ;*>,ooom all—officers and men to serve twelve month uuless previously discharged—and appropri ating blank dollars for the purp >se of carry ing its provisions into effect. The further consideration of the bill was postponed till to-morrow. Mr. Douglas moved that the Senate take up the bill providing for the admission of Minnesota into the Union, saying that he was in favor of the Pacific Railroad bill but thought the question of allowing Senators irom new States ought to take precedence of other business. The Pacific Railroad was a measure in which those gentlemen were deep ly interested. Mr. Gwinu was anxious to consider th.e ’ a ciGc bill. The Senators from Minnesota, he was inclined to believe, could not got their seats before the passage of that measure. Mr. Green said there were several consid erations which should necessarily be brought to bear when the Minnesota bill was taken up. The question of representation would depend upon questions of fact not yet deci ded. All the returns of the census were not yet received. The bill would, therefore, be prejudiced by prematurely considering it. Mr. Chittenden thought that respect for Minnesota and the two agents who hud beer; selected to repiesent her on this lloor made it a primary duty of the Senate to consider the subject. They had to take seats and be heard on the Pacific Railroad bill. Mr. Seward was in favor of the Pacific Railroad bill, but should be obliged to vote against taking it up this time. Ilc believed, with Mr. Chittenden, that the Minnesota case presented a question of privilege and that loose two Senators ought to be allowed to take their seats at the earliest day possi ble that would give an increased vote for the Pacific Railroad bill, and he was afraid there would not be strength enough to carry it without them. Mr. Fitzpatrick, member of the Commit tee on Territories, objected to taking up the Minnesota bill, not having an opportunity to read the report on account of sickness. Mr. t.Jreen did not want a collision between the two measures. He thought the reason assigned by Mr. Fitzpatrick sutlicient for postponing the Minnesota bill. Mr. Mason said there might be circumstan ces when it would be found necessary for the Southern States, in order to determine where they stand in this Union, to take up the Minnesota and Kansas question together. Mr. Wilson spoke of the injustice of such a course, and gave notice that he and his friends would avail themselves of all legisla tive means to resist the admission of Kansas into the Union under the Lecompton Con stitution. Mr. Hale said there had never been a proposition that so seriously threatened the disruption of the Union, as that ol the Sena tors from Va. T t is contrary to the genius of our institutions. Mr. Chitluulen opposed the connection of the two subjects, and made an eloquent Union speech, eliciting applause from the gallery, and without taking the question the Senate adjourned. IToi-sk.—Mr. Stanton offered a tesolutioa that the Speaker issue‘his warrant for the arrest of J. B. AVatson, of New York city, who has been duly summoned and refuses to appear before the Lawrence, Stone & Co. In vestigating Committee, and that he be brought before the bar of the House for con tempt. Resolution adopted. The House is engaged in a discussion up on the bill to supply accidental omission in the army bdl of last session, to make an op propriatiou for the support of the national armies. The hill passed appropriates S’°'6o,ooo for that purpose. Mr. Boyc<> offered the resolution which was passed providing for the appointment of ;> elect committee of seven to inquire inlo and report on the following subjects, viz : A reduction of the expenses of government; he navigation laws of the United States ; the existing duties on imports, and the expedien cy of a gradual repeal of all duties on im ports, and resort exclusively to internal tax ation. The House then resumed its consideration of the Printing Deficiency bill. During the discussion it was stated that the printing for the Thirty-third Congress was a million more than that for the Thirty-fourth, and that such extravagant expenditures resulted from the ordering the printing of works to the extent of which nothing was known. Several gen tlemen emphatically condemned such a waste of money, but they contended that the $790,- 000 proposed to be appropriated was necessa ry to meet existing contracts, pay these and let Congress guard in future against such abuses. Others said that if this system of public plunder for the benefit of party edi i tors was to be continued, they should have ; an opportunity to place their names on record i against it, and to wash their hands of all such corruption. The committee then rose with ont coining to any conclusion on the subject. Mr. Laue presented the State Constitution of Oregon, which was referred to the Com mittee on Territories. Mr. Parrott asked leave to present certain joint resolutions of the Legislature of Kan sas, with a view to have them laid on the ta ble and printed. Impatient exclamations— “ What are they ? Read ! read ! Mr. Craig objected, and raised the ques tion that the papers could not be read. The Speaker said the question was whether they should be received. Mr. Craig appealed from the decision of the Chair. There was much confusion during these proceedings. Mr. Washburn, of 111., moved to lay the ap peal on the table, which was carried. The resolutions were read, strongly ccn uring the action of the Lecompton Conven tion ar.d the odions and oppressive party machinery of law under which the delega tion was assembled, saying that the Con vention repudiated and crushed out the dis tinctive principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act, in not leaving the people free to legislate on the subject of their domestic institutions in their ortm way, but at every stage had been prevented from so doing, and strongly protested against a hnission into the Fnion under the Lecorapton Constitution as violat ing the rights of the people ol the Territory. A second series of resolutions from the Kan sas Legislature was read, asking to be admit ted into the Union in spite of the Lecompton Constitution, and saying that the first Legis lature was seized on by fraud and violence, re volting to a large majority of the voters of the Territory. The resolutions were laid on the table and ordered to be printed. Ad journed. Tito Lecompton Couatltutlou. Washington, Jan. 31 Mr. Clarkson, with the Lecompton Con stitution, arrived last night. Ho immediate ly placed it in the hands of the President.— The Constitution is accompanied by a letter from Calhoun. Clarkson says that the vote of Delaware Crossing Precinct, had been re turned to the Commissioner for Leavenworth county, was in his possession at the time when the returns were opened and counted in the presence of the Speaker of the House, President of the Senate and the Governor, and that it amounts to something over ,'too votes. This gives the Democrats a majority in Leavenworth county, and consequently a majority in both branches of the Legislature. Calhoun is expected to arrive here in a few days. The Union is informed that the Free State vote, said to have been rejected by Cal houu because it was returned to Denver, was the vote on the Constitution alone, not for the State officers, and was therefore rejected. Washington, Feb. 1. The Cabinet is in extraordinary council this A. M., having for the first time an au thenticated copy of the Lecorrpton Constitu tion betore them. The President’s special message to accom pany its transmission to Congress is already prepared, but may not be communicated till to-morrow. The Missourians temporarily in Washing ton, numbering about fifty, paid a visit of courtesy to the President this morning, who, for a short time absented himself to give them audience. New York Herald correspondence: It is reported to me on good authority, that Mr. Buchanan contemplal ■ - withdrawing :be troops from Utah. Mr. Bernheizel, the Mormon Delegate, has submitted proposi tion to the Administration showing the wil lingness of the Mormons to vacate Utah, and colonize on some of the islands of the sea, outside ofthejurisdiction of the United States, provided they will purchase, at a fair value, the Salt Lake City improvements. Mr. B. asks that Commissioners be sent out to arrange terms and details. The Administration confidently expects that Kansas will be admitted as a State with the Lecompton Constitution, ,-.nd that there will be less opposition from the northern and western Democratic members than is gener ally supposed. Great calculat'ons are made on the consolidated vote of the South. It is understood that the Lecompton Constitution will be referred to the Territorial Committee in the Senate, and may be reported upon with the bill for the admission of Minnesota attached, and that they will be passed to gether. Similar arrangements have been made in the House. An exciting time is an ticipated in both Houses to-day. New York Tribune correspondence : The statement in the Herald about the tariff investigating committee is a mere fabri cation, made up from conjectures and floating rumors. Nothing in Mr. Stone’s testimony implicates Mr. Bunks in the least. The Hfraid's 7000 dollars is the old affair of the 700 dollar loan, magnified ten fold. Kansas* .Hatters In Coiigretts. New York, Jan. HO. The Times' correspondent says :—The lat est canvass of the Senate gives reason to fear that Lecompton will have a majority of 2 in that body, including both the New Jersey Senators, Jones of lowa, and the protested Senators from Indiana. Private dispatches received here, state pos itively that Calhoun has backed out of his rejection of t' < returns sent to Gov. Denver. The administration concedes that the Penn sylvania Legislature will vote against the Le compton Constitution. If the direct ques tion is reached, their friends design to smoth er the resolutions in the Select Committee to which they an; referred. The Tribune's correspondent says: The Douglas Democrats held a caucus last night, and counted the Anti-Lccompton force in the House. They make out a majority of seven a gainst Lecompton ; but they rccon upon mem bers who, I know, will not vote wtth them. As things now stand, the Administration will have ten majority in the House on the Kan sas question. The Union cracks the whip vigorously this morning, and the stragglers are falling into the ranks.

In Parton’s Life of Aaron Burr we find the following in regard to the “mysterious” stouo that marks his burial place. We ex tract as follows— As all iu the life of Aaron Burr had some thing of straugeuess and peculiarity, it is not surprising perhaps, that a stone could not be placed over his grave except hi an extraor dinary manner. Some efforts were made, and some money was subscribed, soon after his death, to procure a suitable monument, but the project failed,through the inattention of an agent. For nearly two years the spot where he lay was unmarked, when one inor ing it was discovered that a small, very sun stantial and not expensive monument of granite and marble had been placed, during the night, over his remains. The Cemetery at Princeton is situated in a somewhat thick ly inhabited lau*, and is overlooked, iu every part by people living upon its borders. The principal gate is kept locked. No one in the town saw the monument erected, or knew, or knows, anything whatever respecting it. Nor was there any stone-cutter in the vicinity competent to execute such a piece of work. No relative to Col. Burr, cor any one of my numerous informants, explain the mystery.— Ihe person who did the pious deed is known, however, and lives. Need I say that to a wo man s liberal hand Burr owes tic stone that i commemorates his name ! A newly married couple, riding in a chaise were unfortunately overturned. A man came to their assistance, and observed that it was a shocking sight. “Very shocking, indeed,” replied the gen tleman, “to see a new-married couple fall out eo soon.' Hoclmiuuii’m nieuage Transmitting the Lecompton Constitution. Washington, Feb. 2. Senate The Senate resumed the consid eration of the Army bill. In the midst of the debate upon it, the President’s message was received and read, as follows: The President opens with the assertion that a great delusion seems to pervade the public mind in relation to the condition of parties in Kansas. This arises from the difficulty of inducing the American people to realize the fact that any portiou of them should be in a state of rebellion against the government un der which they live. The dividing line then is not between two political parties, both ac knowledging the lawful existence of the gov ernment, but to those who are loyal to this government and those who have endeavored t<> destroy its existence by force and usurpa tion—between thoso who abstain and those who have done all in their power to over throw the Territorial government established by Cougress. This government they would long since have subverted had it not been protected from assaults by the United States troops. The President then cites Governor Walk er’s despatches as evidence to the existence of a revolutionary movement in Kan sas. and gives the history of the Topeka government. The very first paragraph, he says, of the message of Gov. Robinson dated the 7th of December, to the Topeka Legislatu re con tains an open defiance of the laws and Cons titution of the United States. The Topeka government adhered to with such treasonable pertinacity is a government in direct opposi tion to the existing government prescribed and recognized by Congress. Such a princi ple, if carried into execution would destroy all lawful authority aud produce universal anarchy. From this statement of facts the reason becomes palpable why the enemies of the government authorized by Congress have refused to vote for the Kansas Constitution al Convention, and also afterwards on the question of slavery. It is because they have refused to sanction or recognize any other Constitution than that formed at Topeka.— Gad the whole Lecompton Constitution been submitted to the- people, the adherents of this organization would doubtless have voted a gainst it, because, if successful, they would have thus removed the obstacles from the way of their own revolutionary Constitution. Such being the unfortunate condition of af faire in the Territory, what was the right, as well as the duty, of the law-abiding people ? Ware they silently and patiently to submit to the Topeka usurpation, or to establish a Constitution under the organic law of Con gress. That this law recognized the right of the people of the Territory, without an enabling act of Congress, to form a State Constitution as too clear for argument. It is impossible that any people could have proceeded with more regularity in the formation of a Consti tution than the people of Kansas have done. It is necessary first to ascertain whether it was the desire of the people to be relieved from Territorial dependency anp establish a Slate Government. For this purpose the Territorial Legislature, in 1855, passed a law for taking the sense of the people of the Territory on the expediency of calling a Con vention to form a State Constitution at the general election to be held in October, 185 G. The sense of the people was accordingly ta ken, and they decided in favor of a Constitu tion. It is true that at this election the enemies of the Territorial Government did not vote, because then they were engaged at Topeka, without the slightest pretext of lawful author ity, in framing a Constitution of their own for subverting the Territorial Government. In pursuance of this decision in favor of the Convention, the Territorial Legislature, on the 27th of February, 1857, passed an act for the election of delegates on the ?>d Mon day of June, 1857, to Irame a State Constitu tion. This law is as fair in its provisions as any that ever passed a legislative body for a similar purpose. The right of suffrage at this election is clearly and justly deiiued — every bona fide citizen of the United States, above the age of twenty-one, aud who had resided therein three months previous to that date was entitled to vote. Tn order to avoid an interference from neighboring States and Territories with the freedom and fairness of the election, a provision was made for the registry of bona tide votes, and in pursuance thereof 925 votes were registered. Gov. Walker did his whole duty in urging all qual ified citizens to vote at this election. The President argues thai the Topckaites by refusing to vote for the electiou for dele gate to the Convention, authorized those who did vote to act for them. The conse quence of their refusal to submit to the law ful authority and vote, may yet prove to be of the most deplorable character. Our only safety consists in obedience and conformity to law. Should a general spirit against its enforcement prevail, this would prove fatal to us as a nation. Mr. Buchanan continues —from this review it is manifest that the Lecompton Convention was legally constructed and invested with power to frame a Constitution. lie justifies the Convention for submitting only the slavery question 10 the people. It was of a character as param mnt in respect to the condition of Kansas as to rivet the anxious attention of the people of the whole country upon it alone. No person thought of any other question. For my own part, , when I instructed Gov. Walker in general j terms in favor of submitting the Constitu- j tion to the people, I had no object in view j except the all-absorbing one of slavery. In ; whatever mauner the people of Kansas might regulate their other concerns was not the subject which attracted my attention. It was never my opinion that independently of this act they would have beeu bound to sub mit any portion of the Constitution to a pop ular vote, in order to give it validity. Had 1 entertained such an opinion, this would have been in opposition to many precedents, com mencing in the very best age of our republic. It would have been in opposition to the prin cip’c which pervades our institutions, and winch is every day carried into practice, that the people have a right to delegate to the representatives chosen by themselves their sovereignty—power to frame constitutions, enact laws, and perform many other impor tant acts, without requiring that these should be subjected to their subsequent approbation. | It would be a most inconvenient limitation of their own power, imposed by the people on themselves, to exclude them from exercising their sovereignty in any lawful manuer in which they think proper. It is true that the people of Kansas might, if they had pleased, (Required the Convention to submit the Con stitution to a popular vote, but this they have not done.. The only remedy therefore in this case is that which exists in all other j cases. If the delegates have u. any manner i violated the will of their constituents, I the people always possess the power to ! change their constitution or laws according to their own pleasure. > The question of slaver}' was submitted to the election of the people on the 21st of De cember, last, in obedience to the mandate of the Constitution. Here, again, a fair oppor tunity was presented to the adherents of the : Topeka Constitution, if they were the ma jority, to decide this exciting question in their own way, and thus restore the peace of this distracted Territory : but they again re fused to exercise the right of popular sover- e *& n tyj ar >d again suffered the election to pass by default. I heartily rejoice that a wiser and better spirit prevaled among a la r ge majority of these people on the first Monday in January, and that they did on that day vote under the Lccompton Constitution, for a Governor and other State officers, a member of Cong Tess, and members of the Legislature. This elec tion was warmly contested by the parties, and a larger vote polled than at anv previous election in the Territory. TV e may now rea sonably hope that the revolutionary Topeka organization will be speedily and finally abandoned, and this will go far toward a final settlement of the unhappy differences in Kansas. If frauds have been committed at this election by oDe or both parties, the Legisla ture and people' of Kansas under their Con stitution know how to redr« ss themselves an 1 puuish these dotestable but too common crimes without outside interference. The people of Kansas have then in their own way, and in strict accordance with the organic act, framed a Constitution and State Government,have submitted the all-important question of slavery to the people, and have elected a Governor, a Member of Congess, members of the State Legislature, and other officers, and they now ask admission into the Union under this Constitution. Republican iu its form, it is for Congress •to decide whether they will admit or reject the State which has thus been created. For my own part I am decidedly in favor of its admission, thus terminating the Kan sas question. This will carry out the great principle of nou-intervention. Sanctioned by the organic act which declares iu express language in favor of the non-intervention of Congress with slavery in the States and Ter ritories ; leaving the people perfectly free to form and regulate their domestic institutions in their own way, subject only to the Consti tution of the United States. In this manner, by localizing the question of slavery and con fining it to the people who are immediately concerned, every patriot anxiously expected that this question would be banished from the halls of Congress, where it has always exerted a baneful influence to the country. Mr. Buchanan further suggests: It has been solemnly adjudged by the highest judi cial tribunal that slavery exists in Kansas by virtue of the Constitution of the United States. Kansas is therefore at this moment as much a slave State as Georgia or South Caroliua. Without this, the equality of the sovereign States composing the Union would bo violated aud the use and enjoyment of territory acquired by the common treasure of all the States would be closed against the people and property of nearly half of the confederacy. Slavery can therefore never be prohibited in Kansas except through the means of constitutional provision, and in no other manner can this be obtained so promptly, if tiie majority of the people de sire it, as by admitting her into the Union under her present Constitution. On the other hand, should Congress reject the Con stitution under the idea of affording the dis affected in Kansas a third opportunity to pro hibit slavery in the State, which they might have done twice before, if in the majority, no man can foretell the consequences. If Con gress, for the sake of these men who refuse to vote on the 21st of December, when they might, as they claim, have stricken’slavery from the Constitution, should now reject this State because slavery remained in the Consti tution, it is manifest that the objection upon this subject will be renewed in a a still more alarming form than it has ever before as sumed. Mr. Bigler moved that the message be printed and referred to the Committee on Territories. Mr. Trumble looked on the message as a perverted and incorrect history from begin ning to end on the difficulties in Kansas. He said there was no usurpation in Kansas fur ther than that committed by the President and the army which had been ordered there without authority of law. He argued that the admission of Kansas under the Lecomp ton Constitution would be a violation of the Kansas Nebraska act. Mr. Douglas would not now go into an argument relative to the questions raised by the President’s message. His opinions had been cleady expressed on previous occasions, lie thought the better course would be to re fer the message to the Committee on Territo ries. Hoping that course would be adopted, he asked leave to present a remonstrance signed by certain gentlemen, as the Governor and State officers of Kansas, against the re ception of that State into the Union under the Lecompton Constitution, which he moved be referred to the Committee on Territories and printed. Mr. Toombs expressed his hearty approv al of flic President’s policy. Adjourned. House —Mr. Harris, of liliuois, gave no tice that he would to-morrow move to take up the contested election case of Vallanding ham against Campbell, in order to dispose of the preliminary question involved. The House resumed the consideration of the Printing Deficiency bill. The House spent several hours in consid ering the bill appropriating )$BO,OOO to sup ply the printing deficiency, and it was finally negatived, 67 against 135. The President’s Message was received and read. Mr. Stevens moved its reference to the Committee on Territories, and as the hour was late, thought it better to adjourn. Mr. Harris, of 111., moved to adjourn—lost 105 to 109. The friends of Lecompton gen erally voted in the affirmative. After a strug gle for the floor, Mr. Hughes moved a refer ence to a select committee of 13. Mr. Do cock moved an adjournment—negatived by seven majority. Some sharp words opeurred between Mr. Hughes and Mr. Harris, of 111. Mr. Hughes made a speech fully endorsing the message. Mr. Harris, of Illinois, offered a resolution that the message of the President and the Lecompton Constitution be referred to a se lect committee of thirteen, to be appointed by the Speaker, to inquire into all the facts connected with the said Constitution, and the laws, if any, under which the Convention was held, and if so, whether the provisions of the laws were complied with ; also wheth er said Constitution provides for a republican form of government, whether the population be sufficient for a Representative in Congress under the present ratio, and whether the Con stitution is satisfactory to the majority of the legal voters of Kansas—also the number of votes cast for the Constitution, the places where cast in each county, the caucus or reg istration under which the election of delegate was held, and whether just, and in compli ance with law, and in relation to all other matters on the subject —pending which prop osition the House adjourned. from the Home Journal. Joilii Anderson, IVIy Jo, Amended. This exquisite ballad, constructed by liob ert Burns out of a different and somewhat exceptionable lyric, has always left some thing to be wished for and regretted ; it is not complete. But who would venture to add to a song of Burns’ ? As Burns left it, it ran thus : • John Anderson, my jo, John, When we were first acquaint, Tour locks were like the raven, Your bonnle bow was bent; Hu now your brow, is held, John, Your locks are like the snaw ; But blessings on yourfrosty pow, John Anderson my jo. John Anderson, my jo, John, We ciamb the hill thegither; And many a canty day, John, We’re had wl* ane anither; Now we maun totter down, John, But hand in hand we’ll go, And sleep thegither at the foot, John Anderson, my jo. Fine ns this is, it does not quite satisfy a contemplative mind ; when one has gone so far, he looks and longs for something more— something beyond the fotft of the hill. Many a reader of Burns must have felt this, and it is quite probable that many have attempted to supply the deficiency, but we know of only one in so hazardous an experi ment. This is the added verse : John Anderson, my jo, John, When we have slept thegither, The sleep that a’ maun sleep, John, We’ll wake wi’ ane anither ; And in that better warld, John, Nae sorrow shall we know ; Nor fear we e’er shall part again, John Anderson, my jo. Simple, touching, true—nothing wanting and nothing to spare ; precisely harmonizing with the original stanzas, and improving them by the fact of completing them. This poetical achievment is attributed to Mr. Charles Gould, a gentleman of our town, whose life has been chiefly devoted to the successful combination of figures—but not figures of rhetoric. The verse was written some years ago, but it has not hitherto found its way into print ; yet it well de serves to be incorporated into the original song in some future edition of Bnrns’ poems, and we hope some publisher will act on this suggestion. • Why is it ?—That the St. Paul papers ar rive in weekly installments, when we have a daily mail from that city ?

Lawrence, Jan. 20,1858. The Territorial Legislature has decided not to give way for the Topeka government, but to go on and pass a full code of laws, and let the Topekaites suit themselves. The com mittee iu the House made the following re port upon the resolutions presented by the State Legislature te the Territorial Legisla ture for their concurrence. The report is significant of the split shown by the Territo rial Legislature towards the State organiza tion duriug the whole sitting, up to this time: REPORT. The select committee to whom was refer red the concurrent resolutions of the State Legislature under the Topeka Constitution, would, in accordance with the instructions of the House, respectfully report the following resolution: Resolved , That we have every confidence in the wisdom, patriotism and prudence of the Free State Legislature ; that we believe the movement it represents had its origin in a public necessity, and that it is in their pro vince to take such action in their own capac ity as they may think legitimate and proper, they being responsible for their own action, and we not for them; and as the Territorial Legislature is not legitimately in a position to dictate to or concur in their acts, we have only respectfully to reiterate to them the course of action which we shall at present pursue, as clearly indicated in the resolutions passed by this body to the effect that we would proceed to the enactment of an entire code of laws, which shall supercede laws or protended laws passed prior to the special session of the present Legislature. S. S. Cooper, £. N. Morrill, John Speer, H. Miles Moore, W. P. Badger. There has been sent to Congress the fol lowing MEMORIAL. To the Honorable the Senate and the House oj Repre sentatives of the United Staten in Cong rent asnani lle d: The undersigned, the State officers elected under the provisions of the Constitution of the State of Kansas, framed at Lecompton, would most respectfully represent: That the Constitution under which they were elect ed to the various offices with names append ed, is not 4 the creature of the popular will, but that on the other hand, it has been aud is re garded by an overwhelming majority of the bona fide citizens of the Territory of Kansas, as a fraud. This Constitution was framed by a Convention elected by a bare majority of the people of Kansas, under an election law, a caucus, and an apportionment, that utterly disfranchised the whole people of one-half of the counties in this Territory, also deprived the great bulk of the citizens of the other counties of the right of suffrage. Of the delegates thus elected, but a bare majority met to accomplish the work for which they were elected ; the few that assembled pro ceeded to frame a Constitution for the peo ple of Kansas, which, in many of its most important provinces, is repugnant to the wish es and opinions of the people, and in their opinion is hostile to the best interests aud prosperity ol the State. This Constitution, thus framed, was never submitted by the Conveutiou, to a lair vote of the people, for their ratification or rejec tion ; but on the other hand their judgment was insulted, and their rights trifled with by the pretended submission of what is called the “slavery clause,” in such a manner as to present no question except that of the im portation of slaves into the State in future, and forcing every one who voted to give his sanction to all the other provisions of the Constitution, and to take, if required, a test oath , to support said Constitution, if adopted. Under the provisions of the schedule provid ing for said election, those who voted a ballot marked “Constitution with Slavery,” neces sarily gave their sanction to the whole instru ment, and those who voted “Constitution without Slavery,” necessarily gave the sanc tion of their vote to all the provisions o( the Constitution, except the slavery article, and in lieu thereof, substituted an article prohib iting the introduction of slaves into the State in future, and confirming those now in the Territory, and their posterity in slavery for all time to come. This was tho simple ef fect of the vote. It is scarcely necessary for us to say that the privilege of voting on one proposition, thus beset with conditions so utterly inadequate and unjust, by the power of deciding upon a single, and as submitted, by no means au unimportant question, pro duced at the expense of giving the sanction of our votes to many provisions that our judgment condemned, was and is considered by the people of Kansas no boon, but on the other hand, the offer is justly held to be an insult to a people who know and appreciate the rights of freedom; aqd hence eight-tenths of the people rejected the offer with con tempt, and refused to participate in an elec tion, the terms of which thus compromise the dignity of an American citizen. In view of these facts, tb~ Territorial Leg islature, at its late extra session, provided by law for the submission of the whole Consti tution, on the 4th day-of January, 1855, in three distinct propositions, viz: “Constitu tion with slavery,” “Constitution with no slavery,” and “Against Constitution.” The returns of this election are not yet all recor ded, but enough is known to warrant us in saying that the vote cast against the Consli tution is about 11,000; for the Constitution with slaverj', 150; the Constitution with uo slavery, 24. This large vote against the Con stitution was cast at an election held on the 4th da}' of January, 1858, by the authority of a law parsed on the 17th of December, 1857, which the necessarily short and imper fect notice thereof, no doubt prevented thou sands in the distant interior counties of the Territory, where the whole people are oppos ed to the Constitution, from casting their votes against it. Inasmuch as the pro-slave ry party refused to participate in this elec tion, wc present the vote polled on the 21st of December, as provided for by the schedule of the Constitution, which is as follows: Constitution with slavery . 1,266 Constitution with no slavery Majority Of this majority more than than one-half was obtained in those very sparsely settled precincts on the Missouri border, two of which, Oxford and Shawnee, arc in the Shaw nee reserve on lands not yet open for settle ment, viz: Oxford.. Shawnee Kinkapoo In all From a personal knowledge of the settle ments in and about the above places, we feel that we hazard nothing in saying that the great balk of this vote is fraudulent and ficti-. tions ; and talking into view other palpable but less glaring frauds in other precincts, we feel justified in assesting that not over 20,000 of the ttona fide citizens of Kansas cast their votes for the Lecompton Constitution on the 21st day of December last. The frauds in the election as well as that on the 4th of Jan uary for State officers, &c., will be laid before your honoroble bodies in a few days in the report of a board of commissioners authoriz ed by law to investigate the same. We present the above facts in support of onr declaration previously made,that the peo ple of Kansas have rejected the Lecompton Constitution by an overwhelming majority. The object of your memorialists, and those who support them, in participating in the el ection for State officers, etc., under the Le .ompton Constitution w'as not designated to have the slightest sanctions to that instru ment, but on the other hand to destroy it, in case Congress should admit us into the Union, and thereby force upon the people an organic law against their will, and that is repugnant to their feelings. Our position will be read ily understood upon this point, by reference to the following resolution, adopted unani mously by the Convention, by which we were elected, viz : Resolved, That the candidates nominated by this Convention on accepting such nomi nation, will be considered as pledged, should Hie Constitution be approved by Congress, to adopt and exeente immediate measures for en ahUng the people thrciu/h the new Constitutional Convention, to obtain such a Co,mlit>aion as the ~ man •’am ove. 4,000 voles were committed, and under judg es of election, who in many precincts de manded a test vote to support the Constitu* tiou, in direct violation of the Constitution itself, by which many who would otherwise have voted the Free State ticket were pre vented from voting, and under the additional and great disadvantage of a strong antipathy on the part of many of our friends against any participation in an election under the au thority of a Constitution framed and sub mitted, as was the Lecompton Constitution, by which thousands were induced to with hold their suffrages from us; and yet, in the face of all these disadvantages we have se cured a majority of all the votes cast giving to our opponents the advautage of the ille gal and fictitious votes returned. In view of these facts—that the Lecomp ton Constitution was framed by a hart major ity of a Convention, elected by a small mi nority of the people of Kansas ; and that the Convention refused to submit the Constitu tion thus framed to a fair vote of the people for their ratification of rejection, and that the Territorial Legislature did provide by law for its submission, under which law it was sub mitted and rejected by an overwhelming ma jority of the people ; and for the sake of the peace and prosperity of this Territory, as well as the harmony and integrity of the Union, we, the officers elected under said Constitution, do most respectfully and earn estly pray your honorable bodies not to ad mit Kansas into the Union under said Con stitution, aud thus force upon our people an organic law against their expressed will, and in violation of every principle of popular government.

Robertson, charged with the crime of an attempt to poison hi 3 wife, has resulted in the acquittal of the de fendant. Of course the J ury believed that young Doctor Beigler formed the plot to ruin and imprison the defendant. The wife of the defendant, and the friends of both parties, have stood by him in full confidence of tlfe wickedness of the charge, and, so far as we can judge, the popular sentiment of Mr. Robertson. The Buffalo Advertiser gives some admirable comments on this case. It says: Now that the trial is over, it is a proper time to look back upon the causes which have led to its events and may have had no small share in begetting that spirit of intri gue and crime which is so rife in the city of Rochester. Home years ago, the elder Beigler was en gaged in practice in the city of Rochester, and was the family physician of many of the “best people” there. Ilis name was not then without blot. There were rumors, perhaps untrue, accusing him of the murder of a for mer wife, and it was known that he had been engaged some time previously, to a young la dy in Albany, where he had a wife yet living in Germany. The sudden death of the wife and the disruption of the engagement by the youug lady, had given rise to many unpleas aut reports. Nevertheless, there was nothing tangible, and Beigler was taken into the full confidence in Rochester. Subsequently he commits the crime of arson, and is sent to State Prison. 1 he disgrace of this crime did not prevent him from still retaining the confidence of his patients. Delicate and pious ladies sought the felon’s cell for medical advice, and the scoundrel was finally pardoned out on peti tions of the good society of Rochester. Judges, clergymen, bankers, and merchants joined in the application for his release, and, iresh from the cropped head and stripped clothes, this snuffling, hypocritical victim of persecution came back to Rochester, and was again the medical deity of the town. At that time new rumors of his licentiousness were constaully in circulation, but they ap parently increased his popularity. He was again arrested for a most revolting and hein ous crime, and again sent to State prison.— Still did the fair ladies of Rochester cling to their pet Ksculapius, and among them Mrs. Robertson is found declaring that she “can never recover without Dr. Beigler’s tinc tures.” Her husband and brother, moved by her entreaties, find means to bail the crimin al, and advance large amounts in the vain ef for to procure his acquittal. * * * * * * The moral of this history is simple. The relation of the physician to his patient is one which requires integrity and honor. No re putation of professional talent or skill should induce a man to employ a scoundrel as his family physician. And so long as a man so notorious as IJeigles was the sworn friend of the “best families in .Rochester,” there is no wouder that others, looking upon this exam ple of impunity in wickedness, should have followed in his steps, and gived to that city a most undesirable reputation for great crimes.

The groom discovered it just as he was about to put on the ring, lie was much annoyed, but concealed it out of respect to the holy place. But as soon as services were over he got into a carriage with his lriends and drove otf, announcing to the bride's father that he was leaving Lyons, and she might do as she pleased. Nothing could change his resolution. He paid the forfeit (2,000 francos) stipulated in the marriage contract, and went to Belgium, where he has a situation as foreman of a tobacco factory.

We have been accused of extravagance in speaking of matters and things relating to our much loved Minnesota, but we beg of such of our readers as have made against us this charge, to say if they have ever seen in any of our statements anything half so ex travagant as the following statement of a re port current in Ohio. It is given in a letter received from a friend in Ohio : “By this time I think you must be satisfied with your experience in Minnesota, and be ready to return. We learn here that twenty three children have frozen to death in Minne sota during the present winter.’’ Isn’t that a little extravagant? Who in Minuesota that has had a single child frozen to death here this winter ? Nobody. The assertion is a naked falsehood, without a iluui (i"U of fact for its support—a falsehood got ten up, like thousands of others, by interest ed parties, to injure the emigration to Minne sota. Let our friends look at the statement, ccurred to elsewhere in our columns, of one of these interested land speculators, to the efiect that winter in Minnesota spreads over some nine months!
