Leas terrible in death than in life, though. —The Harper'* Ferry oonepirators were pot on trial and a orowd assembled on tbe 2d. The Qrand Jury found a bill against Stephens and Haslett. They will be de fended by !4r. Sennott. No fear is enter* tained of attempted rescue. The military force will not be largely increased. JLtffiktati ve.

A bill was passed amending an act for the relief of pre-emptors of school lands. Ilottss.—An aot was reported as engrossed which provides for the amendment of the Constitution in each a manner as to allow the Legislature to regulate the number of judicial districts. A long debate was had oo tbe propriety of giving a bounty for tbe destruction of black birds. Mr. Gillett said blackbirds had de stroyed 20 acre* of grain for him in one year. Mr. Lacheur said he would not have a bounty. He thought the birds a benefit— tbnt all birds, insects and beasts were so, except the rattlesnakes. If gentlemen would get some good brandy,—ho bad not been able to, in Des Moines,—[laughter,] or some good old rye, and soak the grain in it, tbejr would see the birds reeling and tumbling in *11 directions and they could then pick tbem up. No bounty was reqnietf, Blackbird* •truck out of the bill. A bill to repeal part of section 2705 of the Code, which provides that no prosecution for adultery should be allowed except upon com plaint of the husband or wife, was debated at length and finally laid on the table. A concurrent resolution was introduced to tbe effect that the Legislature is not preclu ded from the right to change the rates of pay for printing after the election of State print er, so as to bind the officer. Mr. Hall introduced a resolution that the committee on Des Moinee River Improve ment report as to tbe condition of the dams In the Des Moines River, and tbe obligation of mill owners to keep tbe same in repair. (fySome of our Democratic friends are consoling themselves under tbe election of Pennington by stating that he ie an old lina Whig. W© do not blame them. They need consolation. But we are compelled to de prive tbem of that little bit of comfort.— Mr. Pennington is not an old line Whig. H# was such, in days past, just as Fremont, Trumbull, Cameron, etc., were Democrats. But he now is a staunch, distinctive, 'straight backed' Republican, as firm and sound as any in the Houee. Of the New Jersey mem bers, Nixon and Stratton are counted aa Republicans, but were elected by a fusion of the Republicans and Americans,—were the recognised candidates of both parties.— Adraio and Riggs were elected by the joint efforts of the Republicans and Anti-Le compton Democrats. Mr. Pennington was run as a distinctive Republican candidate.— And in tho House, every Republican sup ported him with entire satisfaction, and en thusiasm. Tbe Democracy on tbe other band, observed evidences that tbe Republicans were about to triumph, through him, with somewhat of dis-satisfaction, and almost groaned in agony as his election wae an nounced. rc*t r» m. AUW vuiuuauu lasts, we are happy to say, notwithstanding the threats of tbe Democrat ic members to brenk it up, in the contingency mhinh has occurred. Iastc4i The telegraph brings us tbe news of great rejoicing at Washington over the election o Speaker. Washington rejoiced at the elec tion of a "Black" Republican What are we coming to i All parties, it is said, par took in tbe pleasure. All parties! Where were the Disunion Democracy? We thought they were going to "rend the Union from turret to foundation" if a Republican were elected Speaker. Some spoonies really seemed to think they would. Does "all parties" include then Spooney wouldn't be glad to bear that. foa|ri'»»»V« Mouse not in session. •'FE*NAT*.—Mr. Gwinn gave notioe that tie should call up tbe Pacific Railroad bill on Monday. Mr. Wigfall gave notice of a new bill for a railroad and telegraph line from the At lantic to the Pacific. Mr. Wilson introduced a bill appropriating a million of acres of public lands for the benefit of the free schools of the District of Columbia. f^The contest for Speaker tbtryear was of almost tbe exsct length of the oontest wbtoh terminated in the election of Mr. Banks in 1856.

Rejoicing* it( Wfiktkinfriou, npeecbaa from l'eaBlD|(un and other*. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. [Herald Correspondence f%e«Hy has been wild with rejoicing da ring the night, over the election of a Speak er. It is participated in by all parties, who have suffered more or less financially in tbe delay of organising. Speaker Peunington and Messrs. Sherman and Hickman were serenaded at Willard's by Withers' Band, nccompunied by a large company of citiiene and residents of the Dis trict. Wiilard's Hotel was thronged with people, nnd the Speaker, Messrs. Sherman rind Hickman were bold and decided against the extension of slavery. Tbe sereuadcrs proceeded to tbe residence of H. Winter Da vis, but did not find him at home. They then proceeded, about 1 o'clock, to the resi dence of Mr. Grow and called him out of his bed. He responded in a short speech. The CoauaUtee*"Th« InvMilfatlBg €aianiiu«e***rrintluf raud. [From Washington Correspondence of Tribune-] WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. The Committees will be announced next week. Mr. Sherman will be Chairman of the Ways ani Means and leader of tbe House. Mr. Grow will be at tbe bead of tbe Territories and others who wero members of tbe 34th Congress, will probably be re stored to the positions they then occupied.— Nothing is yet determined, however. Mr. Realf in discharged by tbe Harper's Ferry Committee. Mr. Hyatt will appear to morrow. Mr. Wendell has refused to answer cer tain questions propounded by tbe Printing Investigating Committee, and is allowed time to decide whether he will adhere to bis purpose. If be persists, imprisonment may be the consequence. Elsetlse of Chass*'BtJslelaft. CLEVELAND, Feb. 2. Ex Gov. Chase was elected U. S. Senator on the first ballot vote. Chase, 75 Pugh, 54 *, Corwrin, 5. NKWAEX, N. J., Feb. 1.—The election of Mr. Pennington was received here to day with general satisfaction. This evening the Mercury office is illuminated, honfires are biasing in the streets and 118 guns are being fired. The Governor's political friends are passing compliments freely. Mr. Penning ton is a popular man at home. Adulterated Liquor. Dr. Hiram Cox, official Inspector of Liq uors in Cincinnati, in a recent report on the adulteration of liquors, relates the follow ing "I called at a grocery store one day, where liquor also is kept. A couple of Irishmen camo in while I was there and called for seme whisky, and the first drank, and tbe moment he drank the tears Sowed freelv, while he at the same time caught his breath like one suffocated or strangling. When he oould speak he says to his companion, H)oU, Michael, bet this is warmin' to tbo stomach!' Michael drank ami went through like oontor tionr, with tbe remark, 'Wouldn't it be foine in a cowld frostby morning V After they had drank I asked the landlord to pour me out a little in a tumbler, in which I dipped a slip of litmus paper, which was no sooner wet than it put ou a scarlet bue. I went to iny office, got my instruments, and examined it. 1 found it bad 17 per cent, alcoholic fpirits by weight, when it should hfivo had 40 per cent, to be proof, and the difference in per oentage made up bv sulphurio acid, red popper, pslit ry, caustic, potassa, and brucine, one of the saltsjof nucis vomicte, commonly called nux vomica. One pint of saoh liquor would kill the strongest man." the President of the Mexican Republic, with wi^om thoMaLane treaty was made, is thus described "The Constitutional President of Mexico is a pure Indian of that Tolteoraoe, of whose history we have some account as far back as tbe Hoventh century. President Juarez is as much a self-made man as ex-Preaident Van Bureo, Gov. Banks or Senator Wilson. He was born in tbe State of Oajaca, and when running about tbe streets of ()»jaca, a ragged urchin selling fruit, bis intelligence and good nature attracted tbe notice of a Mexican gentleman, who took him into his honeeaaa servant. The young Indian evinoed so muoh fidelity and capacity in his new position, that his patron sent him to school, and finally gave him tbe best education the colleges of Mexioo afforded. The Indian Juares rose to be a lawyer, and by the suffrages of the peo ple was made Judge of the Supreme Court of thn Republic, in virtue of which he became President under the Constitution when Com onfort abdicated. In private life Juarez is without reproach, and ae a patriot he is with out Htain." Though in favor of the eequestration of tbe churob property and the suppression of lu& iuuimsliu liouacM, Juarea is a I'atnoite. CSTThe sporting fraternity talk of noth ing else than the great fight between lieenan and Sayers, on British soil, April 16th. A larger amount of money is being put up than was ever before staked upon the uncertain issue of the prize-ring. John Morrissey, Heenan's old antagonist, has bet heavily and is still betting against the American repre sentative, and has also received from Savers himself $2,500 to be disposed of to the best advantage. Morrissey will go over, March 26th, and Sayers agrees to take all tbe bets be may have made ou bis own acoount, if, I upon seeing him, the. American ie dissatisfied with his appearance and prospect*. Morris i «cy will also carry $25,000 to invest in Eng land for himself and other parties. If Ilee nan wins, Morriasey declares upon his oath that neither shall set sail ngain for Amenoa uutil one or tbe other hug triumphed in a new TB JM EUROPE AKRIVALOrSTEAMEB AMERICA. Intcreatlng News. 4 The European Congress says the object a# Lord Crowley's mission to London was to resume negotiations between France which were instituted by tbe former and interrupt ed by Count Waiewski's proposition. The principles of these negotiations were no in tervention in the affairs of Central Italy. Franoe, adopting the same basis, is desi rous that tbe whole of Europe should give its formal eftsent to tbe principle. With this view Lord Crowlev was solicited to sound tbe feeling of tbe British Cabinet as to the advisability of addressing a collective note to the European Cabinets. In this note an infraction of the principle of non-interven tion was to be treated as casus belli. Tbo British Cabinet, while expressing its readiness to support the principle of non-in tervention either at the Congress or in its communication with the foreign powers, pointed out the impossibility of pledging it aelf without the consent of Parliament to a onurso of policy which might possibly involve hostilities. The feeling of tbe Northern Courts gave rise to some fear that Europe would not pas sively submit to so threatening an intima tion, aiid whiob also implied tbo adoption of principles offered to tbo independence of ev ery State which possesses tbe right of form ing alliances as it may think proper, at its own risk and peril. The British Cabinet having thus declined the proposition to enter into engagements having suob an important bearing, so early meeting of the Congress was again reviewed. Thi re was a doubtful rumor that the Em peror of Austria has invited Russia and Prussia to defend tbe legitimate rights of Monnrohs. The London Times editorially critioiiee the financial statement of the Ameriean Gov ernment and points out that allowing (prtbe youth of one State and tbe maturity of an other, there is tbe strongest possible analo gy between the respective proceedings of England and America. In another leader the same journal expa tintes on Mexican affairs in connection with the President's message. It says there is not a question but what the Amerioans, if thoy pleased, cnnld march to Meiioo, nor is it to bo doubted that tbe advance would be attended with at least tbe temporary benefit of tranquility having British interest we should look on such a proceeding with the least dissatisfaction. But if Mr. Buchanan's description of Mexico is a faithful picture it will require far more than one casual inter ventmei to restore tbe oountry to tbe rank of en organised force. The Paris correspondent of the Post saye the Papal nunoio has said tbe Pope will give up tbe Romagna provided tbe rest of his do minions be secured to hiss. Cardinal Antonelli's resolution not confirmed. It was rumored that Garibaldi bad gone to Sicily. The Vienna Gazette publishes an Imperial decree, enacting that the testimony of Jews shall be regarded aa of the same value as tbat of Christians. The measure is consid ered preliminary to according full polical and oivil rights. The Government dispatches from Oode confirm the complete overthrow of tbe rebel army. All tbe leading rebel* bad been ta ken except tbe Begum, and he could not hold out alone. Mr. Villenort is publishing a pamphlet, in which be advocates the territorial rights of tbe Pope. It is rumored that a majority of the French Bishops have expressed themselves ready to launch into publio. But Rome hesitates to give the signal to Vienna. It is fully believed the Government intends openly and sctively to interfere in the Central States in favor of the exiled Dukes and the Papal Government. Tho pastoral of tbe Arch-Bishop, pub lished in the Weimar Zeitung of the 11th, confirms the fear. The Universe announces tbat the Bishop of Parigua is about to publish a pamphlet in answer to tbe Pope and the Congress Tbe monthly returns of the Bank of Franee show a decrease in cash of 45,000,000 franesi, and an inorease of discounts of 46,000,000 frsnoa.

(^•"Oeoetfotref writes to tbe Philadel phia Press: When Jefferson Davis said, in tbe debate of yesterday, that he would submit to the election of Senator Foot, of Vermont, as President of the United States, he did not reflect that he may have presented a Presi dentinl candidate for the Republicans. Mr. Foot is one of tbe handsomest, moat agreea ble, and most polished gentlemen in the Sen ate. He resembles Millard Fillmore more than nny umn I know. He looks like a Pres idential candidate, but he is tbe representa tive, in all respects, of Mr. Seward's "irre presfible conflict," and comes from a State in which the Republican doctrines are more intensified than they are even in Massachu setts. Pare* COLLARS.—We beard a young man comrlalning tbuw: "Went and bought a DO* N paper COIIHTS—thought they were very nice, sir, and so chcap, sir.

The woman, although in tbe prime of life, had beoome so weak from loss of blood that pulsation was at times imperceptible. The blood of a friend was injected into a vein in one of her arms, and tbe most cheering results were immedi ately manifested. She continued to improve rapidly, and at last accounts was oensidered beyond danger. AMOTHRR IMPERIAL ENTRRPHBS.

It has been reported, latelv, that the London Morning Chronicle be had been bought op by some distinguished up power, not named, for apolitieal organ. It is now alleged that the French Emperor has added this to his other literarv adventures, having bought the paper for $50,000, to aot as his London organ to promote friendship with England.
