by onr governrctnt; and whereas, the his;ory of oar son
stituti n justilles the be lef that it was folly understood
by all its foundnrs, that slavery, though a g eat evil, wae
to remain tbe euree or boon of snob Slates aa ehesa te
perpetuate It; and, whereat, wa believe oar forefathers
never intended the extsnslon of the area of slavery, bat,
an jast men end patriots, ih?y loeked forward to that,
brig liter day when a people wboee liberties hadjeoet so
dearly would cease In the faoe of their 'auatsd blU of

ard, whereas, the instltntion oi slavery 1< at war with
every legitimate aad cberlshel instltntion of tbe land, aad
must ever mar the prosperity, Impede tbe upward and

B me idea miy be gathered of the for<-e of this
explosion, from the fact that a fragment of t?e boiler,
wtu'lu."K over one hur.dred pounds, was blown with j
push Violence the distaice of a square, that it struck

and cracked th^ w all, which is two brick-tthick. One
of the fragmei ts struck a dray borr.e Btauding on the
levee, and bled him profusely.
It is i m possible, at the time we are writing, to es
timate the exact loss. A gentleman who was stand

on his way to Springfield, Illinois, to which he had
been invited to deliver a course of lectuies. He was
dreadfully wounded; his skull fractured and his leg
broken in two places, be-ides the injury received by
Inhaling steam. Soaie of his friend* who went to

four o'elock yesterday afternoon. Mr. ti. came to thia
city from Georgetown, D. C , as associate rector of
St. George's Church, and in that capacity, and
afterwards ss rector, he had given much satisfaction
to his iieople, and endeared himself to all true
Christians in the city who had made his acquaint
ance. It is a slagnlar and sad lisson taught by his
sudden demise. Not two week ? sinoe he buned
from his church one or his cosgragation who bad

The Free Soil Contention at Fanentl Hall oa
Thursday had a fair Attendance in the forenoon, a
very foil one in the afternoon aiid a slim one in the
evening. It would bare been a much greater affair
but for the condition of the wea'hw, which was in the
fir?t half of the day '? mow above atd slush below,"
with the slush continuing. Cold*, influenzas and
ao forth, ore not to be lightly encountered, even by
the moat fiery eoalut The apeiklng was good ;
some of it very effective. There is to be a meetiog
of all parties on the question next week at the same
place, and meetings are called In other cities and
towaa. I aboald say, that with tbe increased chances
of thfcblll fceiLg killed in the House, the excitement
ia on the rise. Ten or twelve days ago, though the
opposition to the measure was perhaps as strong as
It Is at this moment, scarcely a person could be met
with wbo believed that the projsct of the Illinois
Senator could be thrown out. It was regarded as
booked for certain success. Now as naaay belie vs
that it will be beatei aa there are believers in its
success. Soma believe that the administration is in
reality and at heart hostile to the measare. As the
late Mr. Ritchie n*ed to say, we shall see.
The Nebraska resolves passed our Senate manl
measly, sixteen Senators being absent. Tae demo
cratlc members, ail of whom owe their seats to
the rotes of tit* soilers, are accused of having
" dodged the qusetion." I only know that not one
?f their number voted either for or agaiast the reso
lutions. Tbe House ad >pted them by a vote of 246 to
13. Of the 13 noes nine were coalitioa denosrata,
beaded by Mr. Whitney of Coaway, two were whigs,
and tbe other two were hunker democrats, eaeo'the
number belag Dr. Wales, the hunker candidate for
Governor. As there are about ten hunkers in the
House, the rust cither voted for the resolutions or
"dodged." There were fifty ab^ettees from the
Hoase when the rote was takea. At the final vote,
on the engrossment, the number of abscatses was
much larger. Mr. Whitney's course has astonished
Borne people, aa he his been a thorough going coali
tionist, holding office under It during the whole time
of it# existence, and elected by ite voters to the Le
gislature and to the constitutional convection. It
has always been understood that be was one of the
m<*t uKfal and pfflclsnt or those leading democrats
who had so mncb to do wUh bringing about the elej
tiou of 11 r. Bumrer to the Uu'ted States S.mate.
I understand that taere is to be aa editorial con
vention held here next we?k, for the purpose of
taking some measures fur raising priccs and otherwise
improrlBg the condition of tbe newspaper publishing
business. It is, if mv information be correct, to be
held at the Tremtti* Totep'e, on the !22d , ( Wednesday
?ext.) Something of the kinS would seen to bs highly
necessary, for while tke puces of everything ease
hsre been incretsed, that c' newspapers remains
where It was betore the placeis of California had be
come known to the world. There is likely to be a rev
olution worked ia the busiaess by thiB change of val
ues, and perhaps some establishments may go down
arnJer tbe erewuio. Itiasuppoeedjtbateffbrts will be
made, whether a convention shall meet er nr., to
raise the price of tbe tw?>-cent papers to three cents,
and that of tbe penny papers lo two cents. Noth
ing however, can be usefully done except through
concerted and conbined action. Mere individual,
disconcerted scion, except on tbe part of some few
powerful conoerns, would probtbly cause more harm
than good. 9'bere la not so much disparity, how
ever, between the Bostoa daily papers as theie is be

A case ef rural forgery, or serisa of forgeries,
bac lust come to light. A jwrson whe resides in oat
ef the Middlesex county towns, near by the New
Ma saps hire border, has been taking in some of the
banks at a fine rate. He had placed the names of
men af gaed repute oa hi# pap or and precured its
discoaiit, some at one of the Middlesex banks and
the rest at a bank in Worcester county. It seams
that some of the meney thas obtained had been uied
to take up othsr forged paper. Just before the sail
ing of the California steamer of the Gih of February
the IndiTidaal left his home, with a large amouat of
Iff f*(te, and has not since been directly heard of,
but there is a good deal of circumstantial evideaoe
that leads to the eenelusion that ha sailed in the
Geergia. The Middlesex bank did not learn that it
had discounted forged paper until the 13th of Feb
ruary. Had immediate actioa been taken, be might,
perhaps, hare been arrested : for when a despatch
was sent to Nerfolk, on the day that the California
steamer sailed thenee with the Georgia's passengers,
the Teste! bad only beeu gone three hours, it is
said that he will be " sent for,'' in spite of the dis
tance, ss ai fry are some of those who have been
swindicd. The forger had previously borne a very
fair character, and was last summer appointed
i'o^tmaster of his town, from which place he
was removed in November, though aet for any
cam* iell?cting on his private charaiter. It ia
not impossible that he mav have forged notes
that have not yet " turned up." He managed
tba whole business with a good deal of shrewd
new, and showed at much skill as aught to have
made him comfortably well off if applied to the
transaction of lmsest pursuits. I bare heard ef but
lour notes that he forged, two of which he paid,
while the otbere are in the condition of most news
^r bills of the old school? aot paid, and not likely
paid in a hurry.
We nave reports that Hr. Hildreth's nomination aa
Postmaster at Lowell] has been withdrawn by the
Presieent, and that tne same disposition has been
made of the nominations of Dr. Loring, as Poetmaster
at Balem, and of Mr. Josselyn, as Surveyor of the
Port of Balem and Beverley. These gentlemen are
said to be too much abotitloniz*d for the Senatorial
WlWl A a they are ceither better nor wor* in that
respect than fifty other persons whe have been ap
pealed to office ia New Eagiand, and eoafirmed, it
seems to me that the Senate and toe admiaistraiion
are getting to be mighty nice all of a suddea.
Mr. Bourcicault had a geod benefit at the Natioaal
last evening, and made a happy speech whea ca led
out. Miss Kobertcon had a " crammed and lammed"
boiwe the aame evening at the Museum, it being her
lah? appearance. Mr. Roberti will commence a
round of tragic characters at the Howard on Mon
day evening. He oomee here w th a high reputation.
In Lowell, the Maine law Ls to be enforced with
gr< al rigor, the Board of Aldermen naving passed
aa order directing the City Marshal to act promptly
atxi vigorously ia the business, and requiring all the
police oflicers aad watchmen of the eity to report all
sa?es of violation of the statute with which they
amy become acquainted. This moat be a consider
ate disappointment to the rum sellers of Lowell,
who believed that with the downfall of the coalition
there would he an eud of the law? an infereaoe that
aufht to have been somewhatdisturbed by facts that
pawed under tbeir own eyes. After the law
went iDto deration it was stringently enforced in
Lowell and that eity wan quoted Dy all the temper

provisions. In State politics Lowell was on the ooa

whig bands; ss that the laws existence was due to
one party, and 1U etifereemmt in Lowell to another.
Bat after the coalition went " down among the dead
men," the manicipai authorities of L? well, for soaie
reason or other, became slack In tbeir temperaase
movement* and rum was plentiful as sin; aad
its twin children, misery and crime, became ease
more abundant Thus things have remained
until now, when the temperance aeal of the
local government, like a fire that has bean raked np,
has biased oat, blue in its appearance and consuming
in iss wrath. It is, however, bat fair to state that
this zeal is by no means ooaflned to L iwell. There
exists a strong feellqg on the subject cf putting do wa
the liquor traillc a'l over the commonwealth, vary

Cirtera than in ethers. 1 issex county appears to be
sr?t of a mast animated war, carried en by the
reformers against the demons that used to labor at
"Daacen Hues' distillery," a fleet that ooxht to be
very gratifying to the Rev. Mr. Cheerer. The cases
three are umaaroos, the caa fictions not a fhw, and
the punishments the reverse of light. Cambridge

and several others sre more or less injured, but no
lives lost It is a miraele, toe, for several houses and

penter shop. Loss about $100.
Rice & Thompson's ctrpt Liter shop was a fine two
story building, 40 by 24 It was apparently a strong
built tOiop, but the wind (strange as it may appear)
blew the lower story from uaaer the upper story?
resBOviug the former some distance, and the latter
falling nearly on the fQiniation. The reef was en

ike fine steeple stands and is not much injured.
hoae who saw the storm say that the roof rose per
pendicular, and patsed off to the northeast, entirely
over tlie steeple, and was scattered over the neighbor

There were about fifty dwellings, stablei and shops
either totally destroyed or badlj injured. The storm,
however, passed evar that part ef the town where
most were email buildings. The entire lose will not
exceed $25,000.
? We have not beard from the track of the storm
from either way southwest or northeast, but we fear
much destruction is in the track.
In the storm bere to-day, one man was blown oat
eftbe street and landed in a lot Bags of wheat
were blown ont of a wagon. Sticks of timber were
whirled through the air like feathers. There is now
a large scantling or joist sticking into the gable end
of a name building, twenty feet from the ground.
It had been taken ?p by the wind and carried along
endways with such force as to drive it through the
frame and stick there. There are various hard
