Legislative Farmers’ and Mechanics’ Club. —The third meeting of this club was held in the Representatives’ Hall, on Thurs day evening, the President, Col. John H. Stevens, of Glencoe, in the chair. The attendance was not so large as at the previous eveniDgs, in consequence of a party at the Governor’s. The subject for the evening’s discussion was stock raising. Mr. Shrewsbury, of Hennepin, said that Providence had evidently intended Minne sota for a stock raising country—its natu ral meadows enabled the emigrant to com mence raising stock when be first made his settlement. The winters are so dry that cattle will do better here on hay alone than in other States—they will come out better in the spring than in Indiana and Illinois, where they are fed on turnips, hay and corn. Almost any farmer can easily winter from twenty-five to fifty head of cattle upon hay from his own farm. Mr. Hoyt, one of the oldest settlers in this section of country, made some interesting remarks upon farming in this country. He thought highly of the State for stock rais ing, but would not have exclusive stock or grain farms, but would raise everything that the country was capable of producing. He spoke particularly of the adaptation of the climate to sheep raising. The animals in the far north had heavier furs than in the south, and he thought the sheep would pro duce more wool here than in Missouri or lowa. It was his conviction that no pur suit would be more certainly remunerative than the raising of all kinds of stock, vege tables and cereals, on the same farm. Mr. Abbott, of Le Sueur, said Minnesota was a pastoral State. We should endeavor first to raise enough of everything the soil was susceptible of producing for the purpose of supplying ourselves, and then consider what we could raise that would be most profitable to export. We should never import any thing that we raise ourselves. He thought there was a necessity for raising all the wool we could. At present our great export staple was wheat, but on ac count of the high cost of transportation it was not nearly as profitable as beef and cheese—he thought cheese would be the most profitable export—much more so than butter ; and that next to beef and cheese, wool would be the best, because it cost but little more to transport a pound of wool to a market than a pound of wheat or flour— and that all our surplus cereal and vegetable crops should be tunned into that which could be most cheaply transported to a market. Mr. Langworthy gave an account of his starting a stock farm, which was not very encouraging. He brought one hundred head of two year olds, and it cost half of them to get the other half wintered the first season 001. Stevens suggested that probably Mr. Langworthy came into the country in the fall with his stock, without having made any provision for the winter. Mr. Abraham, of Hennepin, thought the reasou why we were so poor now in Minne sota, was, that we had been, ever since its first settlement, importing instead of export ing. He thought that no business here would pay better than raising sheep and wool—that we could compete with any body in raising sheep and stock. He thought it unwise to have any but the best breeders. He thought it useless to have a kind that would not yield more than three pounds of wool, when one that would yield six pounds would cost no more. Wool could be shipped to New York for about one cent per pound, and would there bring forty two cents per pound. The wool crop of Wisconsin last year amounted to over §400,000. There was another reason why we should turn our at tention to wool growing—it is because Minnesota has such superior manufacturing facilities. We have also to supply the vast country to the North and West of us. The speaker stated that the wool grown in the North was heavier than in the South—that Missouri sheep yielded one-fourth more wool in Minnesota than at home. Too much attention cannot be paid to stock raising, and to the care of stock during the winter— no Pennsylvanian farmer would think of tying cattle out of doors to posts and fences, if he expected them to plow his fields in the spring, any more than he would expect to go to Gibralter on a sled; with the same attention to this point here, cattle would come out in the spring twenty per cent, better here than there. It was good econo my to take good care of stock. The speaker said that hogs should also be better taken care of, as pork raising was only second in profit to wool raising. He had imported from Philadelphia, a breed known as the •“Chester County Whites,” which netted, when they were seventeen months old, six hundred pounds. The best breeds don’t eat any more than the long-nosed prairie rooters, and will return one hundred per cent, more pork. The speaker thought it would pay better for our farmers to put their corn, potatoes, and other surplus pro ducts, into pork, when they could get three or four per hundred for it, than to attempt to export He had imported six of the “Chester County Whites,” and was desirous that the breed should be extended over the State. He had known one of this breed to yield eight hundred weight of pork, at thirty months old. Col. Stevens stated that this year he had fenced in eighty acres as a pasture for his cattle, and that they had done better than when they had the range of the whole coun* try—the cattle got lean in travelling its wide expanse. He thought our common prairie hay equal, if not better for cattle than clover and timothy. Mr. Hoyt, of St. Paul, related his expe rience in providing pasturage for cattle, which showed that there was a great benefit in burning the pasture over in the spring— that the cattle would remain upon a tract of country burnt over, without fences—the grass was of the sweetest kind and highly relished by cattle. Mr. Abbott, of Le Sueur, said that timo thy grass was never expected to live in the ground over three or four years. No better timothy could be raised anywhere than in the Big Woods, where the sub-soil was a strong, tenacious clay—wherever there is a clay sub-soil the grass will grow better than anywhere else. Mr. Abraham said he thought no land east of the Mississippi would retain timothy over three years. Mr. Stebbins, of the Hastings Independ ent, said that the health of animal life in Minnesota was proverbial, and the question was, whether we possessed the elements for the sustainment of that life—in this connection he alluded to the different grasses that would do well here. Mr. Beatty of Sibley county, in allusion to doubts expressed about the profits of stock raising after the commons are feuced in, said that it was a settled fact that if stock raising was profitable now that it would be so ten years hence—and that stock would do better here on wild hay than anywhere else on tame. He thought the most profit able branches of business for the farmer in Minnesota at the present time, were the raising of pork and cattle. Several other gentlemen spoke, but we have no room this morning for a more ex tended report. We would suggest to the club the pro priety of taking up some particular subject and confining the discussion to it, until it was exhausted. For instance, let one even ing be devoted especially to grasses—another to milch cows, and incidentally, to the food which will produce the best quality and largest quantity of milk—another evening to swine, and so on through the whole list of subjects. The discussions of this club should be so conducted as to settle as far as possible some particular point, lor the benefit of the whole State—and the experience of so many gentlemen, from different localities cannot fail to be useful. The next meeting will be on Thursday evening next. St. Paul Wheat Market. —We recur to this subject again, in consequence of the persistent efforts made by people, who are interested in drawing away from St. Paul, the trade naturally tributary to it, to im press upon the minds of the farmers an idea that there is not a remunerative market here for wheat, and that good money is not paid for it when it is purchased. Even one of our own local papers, the limes, stated yesterday morning, that farmers across the river, in Dakota county, preferred to take their wheat to Hastings, because they could there obtain a better price for it. The writer of the above statement could not have made one calculated to do more injury to the mercantile community of St. Paul than this—and what makes the matter worse, we are assured by those who have the means of knowing, that it is untrue, so far as it relates to wheat bringing higher prices in Hastings than in St. Paul. As we have before stated, there are at least a dozen individuals and firms here prepared to purchase any amount of wheat that may be brought in, and to pay the highest prices, in gold, and as the river is frozen over, it can be brought in from all quarters without ferry or bridge tolls. Farmers may be assured that the above is a true statement of the case, and when they bring in their wheat, we can readily refer them to parties who will give them substantive evidence of its truth by purchase. We would say to the farmers who have wheat to sell, that they will here find a brisk competition among purchasers, and that so far from asking them to take “store pay” or depreciated currency, that they can gfet the gold for it, at as high rates as at any other point between here and LaGrosse —and further, that they will do much better to sell now, when it has reached almost, if not quite to the maximum price, than to run the risk of waiting until spring | before they sell. THE WEEKLY PIONEER AND DEMOCRAT Coroner’s Inquest. —Coroner Castner held au inquest on Sunday over the body of Rosa Scharf, who died on Thursday evening last, after a short illness. This person will he remembered as the main wit ness in the Bilansky case, she being em < ployed as a domestic in that family at the time of Bilansky’s death. The circumstan ces of her death as detailed by witnesses summoned on the inquest, are breifly as follows: Lorenzo Allis being sworn, testified : The deceased was a domestic in my family since August last. She came to me recom mended by Rev. Mr. Hank, of the German M. E. Church. Her conduct has been un exceptionable : kept no company : know of no one ever coming to the house to see her. Saw her last Wednesday evening about six o’clock : shortly after tea she went out and returned about eight or nine o’clock the same evening: spoke to her about getting up early the next morning : afterwards she retired. The next morning after waking, did not hear her about: got up and went to the stairway, and called her: no response: heard a hard breathing up stairs : returned and told my wife : she went up immediately and found the deceased in a convulsive state, and apparently breathing with difficulty : sent immediately for a physician: Dr. Wed elstadt come, also Dr. Willey: they both said she could not live. Dr. Willey said she had apoplexy : she remained insensible up to about six or seven o’clock on Thurs dav evening, when she died : sent for Mr. Hank who took charge of her body; after the body was removed, my wife found an empty phial in the room labelled “ Lauda num.” I then went to Mr. Hank and sug gested the propriety of holding an inquest. Mrs. Kilpatrick was sworn, but there was nothing in her testimony which went to show by what means deceased came to her death. The deceased had called afc her house the evening prior to her death’ and appeared in her usual health. She stopped there only a few moments, and then went home. Knew of nothing which would tempt her to commit suicide. Had heard deceased complain of being unwell; spoke once or twice of a pain in her head for which, she had taken pills. Andrew Kjlpatrgk sworn and testified that deceased was at his house on Wednes day evening; called there after a dress ; she was there about twenty minutes, and then went home.; this about eight or half past eight; deceased asked what they were going to do with Mrs. Bilansky ; did not eat or drink anything while at the house. Dr. Wedelstadt, sworn—Called to see deceased about ten o’clock, on Thursday morning; found her in a comatose state, eyes almost closed ; moved the eye-leds back and forward ; the eyes resembled those of a dying person. She breathed hard, and there was a rattling noise in her breast; told Mrs. Allis that it was an evidence that she was near her end ; similar symptoms would be produced by arsenic. When I first called, her cheeks and nose were very cold ; her pulse was fluttering at the rate of 120 pulsations per minute ; her eyes were blue and her lips were of a purple color. I called again in the afternoon, thought she looked better, but there could be no hopes of her recovery. Saw symptoms in her case which were similar to those produced by laudanum ; could not say what caused her death ; the laudanum in the phial appears to be unusually strong. C. R. Morrison sworn—Am clerk in Dr. Morton’s drug store on Jackson street ; recognize deceased ; sold her laudanum on Monday evening, 2d inst.; don’t remember the exact hour, but it was after six o’clock. P. M ; sold her an ouuce; she came in and asked for two ounces of laudanum; I asked her whether she asked it for a grown person or a child ; she said for a grown person. I put her up an ounce phial, and labelled it in the proper manner ; she took it, and as she was going out, she turned and asked me the dose ; I told her from twenty to forty drops, according to circumstances, which were detailed ; a Mr. Murphy was in the store, and remarked that she was one of the wit nesses in the Bilansky ease. The laudanum was of the official strength, as directed by the U. S. Dispensary. Recognize the phial (which was exhibited) as the one given her ; directions on the label are in my handwrit ing. When she asked for the laudanum she appeared well; observed nothing unusual in her appearance—nothing which led me to suspect anything was wrong ; there was sufficient laudanum in the phial to have killed her, if she had taken it. The jury returned a verdict that the de ceased came to her death from taking an over dose of laudanum, for the purpose of allaying pain. The opinion of the physi cians was that her death was occasioned by apoplexy. Doctors and coroner’s juries sometimes disagree. Another Interesting Row In Congress. The House proceedings of the sth inst., are very interesting. Mr. Montgomery of Pennsylvania, pressed his motion for a tem porary organization, in order to pay the mail contractors the four millions of dollars due them. It was opposed, on the ground that no business could be transacted until a permanent organization was affected, and the speaker and members sworn in. No action was had on Montgomery’s proposi tion. Two votes were taken for Speaker, but Sherman, on each occasion, lacked the necessary three votes. A debate then took place, of which the telegraph gives us the following summary: - Hickman gave notice that a motion was made to proceed to ballot, be should offer an amendment in the shape of a proviso for the adoption of a plurality rule, so that he would discover who are in favor of organization; and who are against it. The Democratic party as represented on this floor ought to be seen by the country. Gentlemen when they speak,express anxiety that tbeir remarks should go to the country. He wished the country could look in here and see the condition of the so called Dem ocratic party—representing the administra tion, ana a more perfect type of the admih istration could not be found. It was per fectly disorganized, and without coherence, and with no unanimity at any time; while in this despicable condition the House is kept unorganized and the country tortured. Mr. Davis, of Indiana, said for the five weeks he had been here he had carefully abstained from opening his mouth. (Voice's “louder.”) He would say to gentlemen, bold on and they would hear him. He would fain have contented himself with silence to the end of the contest but for the remarks of Mr. Hickman. He did not understand the right of any man to catechise him as to the vote he should give. He stood here as an independent Representative. He intend ed to represent freemen as become him. The gentleman from Pennsylvania had referred to the manner in which some anti-Lecomp tonits were elected. He (Davis) never de signed inquiring how that gentleman was elected. It was not his business. He de sired to tell the gentleman, the House and the country, that he was elected by a major ity of 4,000. He was elected as a Demo crat, and in 4 the seventy speeches he delivered, in which he declared himself a Democrat, he did not cross a “ t ” or dot an “ i ” as to his political faith. He challenged any man, any in his district, to say whether he ever made a speech in which he did not utter that declaration. He ran against the ad ministration, as a Democrat, as an anti- Lecompton Democrat, and had not chaged his opinion as to the policy. He had stead ily voted for an anti-Lecompton Democrat for speaker, and not for a Republican. I will not, he said, vote for Mr. Sherman, much as I respect him personally, though these walls should fall down. (Applause on the Democratic side.) When 1 fought this battle I never thought I was to be thrown into the arms and embraces of the Republi can party. (Renewed applause.) I never intended to be sold to the Republicans with their present doctrines. (Applause ) Mr. Hickman. The gentleman stated that he represented himself as an anti- Lecompton Democrat, and made that issue alone. I would like to know whether he did not denounce the administration of Mr. Buchanan a 3 a mass of lying, corruption, and dihonesty? I have raised no controver sy with the geutleman. I made the simple inquiry of the gentleman from New Jersey, (Mr. Adrian), but as the geutleman from Indiana chooses to take up the glove, I will compare records with him as to Democ racy. Mr. Davis. Very good. Mr. Hickman. The gentleman has not said whether he received the Republican votes. Mr. Davis. I did not denounce the ad ministration, except on the Lecompton question. Is that sufficient? I got the votes of a majority of Democrats, and, I believe, every American, and a large major ity of the Republicans, and if the election had been put off two weeks, I believe I would have got every vote. (Laughter.) Mr. Porter, of Indiana. I ask you, did you not openly denounce the Dred Scott decision before 2,000 people, at Indianapolis, and say that no man could carry a single township who did not denounce that de cisfcn. Mr. Davis. I thank thee, Jew, forgiving me that word. (Laughter.) I say that I did no such thing. Mr. Porter. I have the Indiana State Sentinel of November 19,1858, the organ of the Democratic party, containing a report of your speech on that occasion. Sir. Davis. I have no objection that the whole speech should be read here. The Sentinel, you say is my organ. Mr. Porter—l say the Sentinel is the acknowledged organ of the Democracy of Indiana. The report is correct, because I had the honor of hearing the eloquent gentle man, and I never knew any man to elicit such applause. (Laughter on the Republi can side.) Mr. Davis, as well as Mr. Porter, spoke with much earnestness and emphasis. Much confusion prevailed, and the words of the speakers often failed to reach the reporters’ gallery. Mr. Burnett expressed the hope that order would be preserved. Gentlemen could not hear, owing to the loud talking and walking about. Mr. Grow trusted the frequent expres sions of applause would be prevented. Cries from the Republican side to read the report. Mr. Porter’s voice above the din—My colleague refuses to let the passage in his Indianapolis speech to be read. (Renewed cries of “ read, read.” Mr. Davis to Mr. Porter—That’s my business ; take your seat. Mr. Porter—l ask— (Deafening roars from the Democratic side of “ Order, order.”) Mr. Davis said—l am glad he heard me make that speech ; I think it was tolerably eloquent, and I am glad he appreciated it. He says that I denounced the Dred Scott decision ; I say this is totally, wilfully and maliciously false, let the charge come from whom it may. (Applause from the Demo cratic side.) Mr. Dunn, after characterizing Mr. Davis’ manner towards Mr. Porter as rude, said he himself heard the speech, and it was gener ally remarked amoug the Republicans, that they never heard one so in accordance with their principles—“ you did denounce the Dred Scott decision.” Mr. Davis—l repeat with a full knowl edge of what I did say, that the charge is a falsehood aud a slander. (Applause.) I am responsible here or elsewhere for this declaration. (Sensation.) Mr. Dunn—No one regrets more than I do being involved in a question of veracity with my colleague, and I should not now arise if I had not felt it dae to my colleague who has beeu treated in a rude manner. The course of my colleague, Mr. Davis, was a very convenient way to ventilate his bravery. If the gentleman thinks I did him personal wrong, he can take personal satis faction whenever it suits his convenience to do so. (Laughter on the Democratic side.) Mr. Davis—Very well. Mr. Dunn—This is just the time and place to come to a settlement. Mr. Miles—l have the floor. Mr. Dunn—l have the floor aud insist upon it. Mr. Miles—l am not willing to yield the floor for endless controversy, whichis out of place. The Republicans again called for the reading of the extract. Mr. Davis—l am not to be intimidated by these men. I was never cooler in my life As far as the Sentinel is concerned, the editor and I have not spoken for four years. He opposed my election with a bitterness never before known. I never knew, till last week, that a synopsis of my speech was published in it. I then wrote to a friend to send me a copy of the paper. Although it is not a fair synopsis, I am not ashamed to have it read here. 1 would not take back a single principle for the Presidential, much less the Speaker’s chair. That synopsis was used clandestinely and meanly against the Democrats by certain gentlemen on the other side. Mr. Porter (interrupting)—One word. Mr. Davis—Not now; wait till I give you the opportunity. Various gentlemen on the Democratic side called Mr. Porter to order. Mr. Davis—The Dred Scott decision is right, but I do not give it the interpretation which the President does in his message. I said, in my opinion, that any man who takes the ground that the constitution per se es tablishes slavery in the territories could not carry a single township in my state. There is not a word in that synopsis which shows that I meant the Dred Scott decision. I only alluded to the President’s opinion. He (Mr. Davis) then referred to the canvass in the Second Congressional District of Indi ana, saying that he appealed from a packed convention to the majority of the people, and was triumphantly sustained Here there were repeated cries from the Republican side of “ Let the extract be read.” Mr. Porter hoped that Mr. Miles, who was still in possession of the floor, would allow the extract to be read. Mr. Miles wanted some distinct under standing, but the purport of it was lost in the general confusion. Mr. Porter—l understand the gentleman from South Carolina yielded the floor that the extract might be read, and in order that I might reply to the assault of my colleague. Mr. Miles—lt would not be fair to do by indirection what could not be done directly. Mr. Porter—l wish to say—(cries of “Go on, go ou, Miles.) Mr. Miles—lf the gentleman from Indi ana desires the floor, he will undertake to read what his colleague (Mr. Davis) objects to. Mr. Davis—l do not object to his reading it. Mr. Ruffin—l object to the gentleman from South Carolina yielding the floor for that purpose. (Cries from the Republicans, “Too late.”) Mr. Ruffin—lt is not too late. (Mingled cries of “go on,” to Miles, and calls from the Republicans for the extract.) Mr. Porter again arose. John Cochrane interposed a point of order. He had been recognized by the clerk, but had yielded the floor to Mr. Miles. If he did so, he hoped the latter would be permitted to go on. Mr. Ruffin—l think such proceedings disreputable. Let us adjourn till to morrow. (“No, no,” from the Republicans.) Gentle men can talk over their personal matters at another time. Mr. Porter said he would read the extract himself. Mr. Mcßae—Let the paper be read by the clerk, so that all can hear. Mr. Porter—the House will recollect— Mr. Mcßae began to speak, and was loudly called to order. Great confusion ex isted, and but little he said was heard. Mr. Porter, after order was partially restored, said : Did not my colleague, on the stump, in public meetings, in Indiana, state that be did not endorse the Dred Scott decision ? He says he did not make any such remarks. I then asked that the pas sage in the Sentinel, the organ of the Dem ocratic party and Judge Douglas, be read. Finally, the extract from the synopsis of the speech of Mr. Davis was read, to the effect that it was given out in high quarters that the constitution takes slavery into all the territories, in violation of the local law, but that the presidential candidate who so maintained, could not carry a single town ship in Indiana in 1860. If such doctrines are true, the Republicans are correct. The doctrine was advocated by Calhoun, and took him down the stream. <fcc. Mr. Porter remarked that he was willing that the question between him and his col league should go to the country. (Derisive laughter on the Democratic side.) There was scarcely a man on the floor but that would say that this was a declaration against the Dred Scott decision. He ventured to say that many of his colleagues and friends in Indiana, including the anti Lecompton men, will be surprised at his declarations that he did not denounce the Dred Scott decision. He was surprised that his col league, whom he had treated courteously, should attempt to divert the business of the House by attempting a personal issue. His colleague had intimated that he had exhibi ted this paper clandestinely to operate against the Democrats. One or two of his colleagues, knowing that he had it in his possession, called on him to see it, but he never exhibited it to mortal man without being asked to do so. Not more than four or five men had seen it from him. He always understood that when a public man makes a public declaration he was willing it should stand, and no men with those senti ments would shrink from an exposition of his position. Mr. Davis. As to responsibility for my district, I will take care of it, if my colleague will take care of his own. lam responsible to my constituents t alone. My colleagae said I had denounced' the Dred Scott decis ion, and this fact would be established by the Sentinel. I said it was false, for the word Dred Scott was not mentioned by me. (Laughter from the Republican side.) I never denounced that decision. When I was so accused, I said the charge was false, and put the brand upon it. I respect all the decisions of the Supreme Court, and will obey them ; but I have the right to put my own construction on them, and to differ from the President. Mr. Dunn. I won’t ask you to yield. The confusion now became worse than ever. The clerk endeavored to suppress the disorder. Mr. Miles. The debate has taken a bene ficial turn. I like to see this discussion. I like to see individuals announce their decis ions and define their positions, and state what they do not intend to do, and not, like tha gentleman from New York (Mr. Clark) show how we could not organize. (Laugh ter.) Mr. Dunn apologized to Mr. Miles for his apparent rudeness, in insisting on occu pying the gentleman’s time. He supposed he had the floor by leave of his colleague. Mr. Miles said that no apology was neces sary, seeing that the gentleman did not intend anything wromr. Mr. Dunn thought from the courtesy o Mr. Miles, and his knowledge of the rules, be would cheerfully give him an opportunity to reply to what Mr. Davis said was false. He had not been accustomed to hear such language. He begged to say to Mr. Davis that he (Dunn) spoke to the people of Indi ana, who knew both of them. Even in our courts of justice, by two witnesses, the truth may be established, and there was an addi tional one in the paper which had just been read. His colleague said he did not, in the canvass, denounce the Dred Scott decision; but there were thousands of living wit nesses who will read this debate with sur prise, and in due time will tell the country whai he said. He (Dunn) heard the speech of Davis on the occasion when the friends of Mr. Douglas were there in mass meeting, to express their feelings in regard to him and the administration. The hall was crowded to its utmost capacity. On the platform were men who had grown gray in the Democratic ranks, aud they used the language which is so familiar to Republican ears. The fiercest Abolitionist never de nounced the decision with more bitterness and force than did his colleague. As to the charge of falsehood, he (Dunn) would leave that to the people of Indiana. Adjourned. Washington, Jan. 3.— Miramon’s formal protest against McLane’s treaty with Juarez will be presented to Mr. Cass by Miramon’s representative in this city. Farther intelligence from Mexico states that Miramon has projected another move ment against Vera Cruz. Review of the St. Raul Markets, Preyared expresshj for this Paper, and corrected daily, by Beaumont and Gordon, Grocers and Commission Mer chants Third street. Saturday Evening, January 7, 18C0. tVe continue our quotations without any material change. Wheat is firm at figures giv en below, without, apparently, any immediate tendency to advance. Flour, which was down to a very low figure at one time this winter, is now looking up, and we notice some little speculative demand for it. Groceries are in fair demand, and without change in price. Trade, which has certainly been in a languishing con dition for some weeks, begins tc exhibit some symptons of a revival. Produce comes in slow ly, but with the present improvement in our roads, and the prices for grain which are now offered in our market, more liberal receipts may be looked for. As the season has arrived in which the sale of Furs attracts considerable attention, we give the current market rates of the different varie ties in our quotations. We derive our informa tion in regard to the price of Furs from respec table dealers. and consider it entirely reliable.
