At toy rater.it shows that the prin cipal men of the SenaU are independent of all party lies. The defeat of tbe Arm Bill wet felt as a heavy blow by tbe Administration, and it is expected that a new bill will be con trived aud if possible pushed through. A motion wsa made to reconsider tbe vote hy which the bill was defeated, but Wash ington date of the 26th express the opin ion that the motion will not prevail. The correspondent of tba Timet writea on the 85lh: Tbe notable event of the day is the re jection, by the Senate, of the bill for the increase) of the army. Tbe amendment,' which in fitct decided the fata of the en tire measure, was one substituting vol unt'er for a regular force. TLis wsa car ried by two majority, and then the Ultra Lecompton men voted for its at solute re jection, and it was lost by a large majori ty. Tbia course, by the gentlemen who are so earnest in the effort to forco Kansas into the Union, in violation of "Popular Sovereignty," established the fact that they, at least, desired tbe army increased for service in Kansas, rather than in Utah, and indicates that they dared not trust to vo unteers to carry out their tyrannical bidding.

The JJreJ Scpt decis ion, that (be colore l man of African de cent baa no rights, finds a fitting exponent in the Democratic party ofth.it State.

There is no limit to this sort of selfish ness. nd all chracteriitionsof it are tamo in comparison with the stunning and stu pendous villianiea which men under its influence will perpetrate. Of course, finding this wicked measure before tho people, we took occaion to refer to it in o-ir speeches through the State. From tho tone of public sentiment, we should judge that if thi bill passes, it will La dead letter in most of the State of Ohio. This is only n mitigating circuin tance.

As sentinels on the wtcb tower, wo rnodeatly inquired, whit was in the wind wht was wrong what were "the dem agogues wl o now rule in the ascendent" doing, or bout to do, that put our neigh bor all at once on the qui vive, and incited him to appeal so stirringly to the people. We wished to ascertain the aubject of fear for two resons. First, that as public jour. naliats, we might furnish it as a matter of tel.' the country that it was made by, and news to our readers.

Official Curruptlon. The leaders of the Buchanan wing of the Democratic party, are just now making a great adieu, and severely lashing an old man a Republican member of Congress named Mattesni--on charges of corruption and bribery that are made against him Thi is ri.'ht so far a an iuvcatiLMtinn iuto the charges themselves is concerned. tt i should bo Ihe wish of every Renublican. I that their organization be kept pure; and if Mr Maltcson has done wrong in his offi cia capacity, or if he has yielded to corrupt s - overtures let him suffer for it, ami that keenly. But why do Democratic members of Congress flare up so extravsgautly, and demand investigations so quickly, into chai" ges of this kind against Republicans, when at the same time they vote against investi gations, and desire to cover up charges of this character when they are preferred against Democrats. 1 A short time since the books of a mercantile bouse in Boston fell into the hand of other paities, and it was diacovoreJ from an entry in one of them, thst 187,000 had been paid to secure tho passage of an act through Congress. That body felt itself insulted. It ordered an in. vestigation. but as soon as it was discover ed that n portion of the money had gono into Democratic pockets, tbe whole matter was amoliiered, for W, we suspect, that it would be ascertained, (hat the ballanco had also found n place iu the tniue political household. Since then, a motion wns again made in Congress to appoint a committee to inquire into the charges made by tb0 correspondent of the New York Tribune, tbat Mr Burnt, the member of Congress from tbe adjoining District, bad been in duced to vote with the Lccomptonites on the promise from the Administration, that his ton in-law should be appointed Pot master at Keokuk. Also that Mr Burns sliqald be appointed Marshal of the Nor thern Diatrict of Ohio. This motion wa tabled by the decisive Tote of yess 108, nays 88. No investigation could be had. No inquiry into tho subject allowed. Mr Burns wss not to be exposed. But at the aaine time Ihe Democrsts were clamoring loudly for the expulsion from pongesa of Mr Matieson, whose criminality is not half to pointed as is tbat of Mr Burns. Con- sistency thou art a jewel indeed! 1-1 (MPTO COXSTITl'TlOX --.Ot'HA.GE I TILL 1904. Tbe only argument that is now urged by Northern Deraocrata for tbe admission I f Kansas under the Lecompton Constilu lion is, that if that instrument is obnoxious to the people they can change it to suit themselves iinmedistely after being recei ved into tbe Union as a State. Was there really anything in this, it would still be an j inglorious surrender, to tbe South and the Administration, of tbe point at issue. Mr Bucbanan pledged himself lo the country in 1850, thst tbe people of Ksnsas, should at the proper time, appoint delegate to a Conveution that should frame a Constitu tion, and that Constitution thould be tub- milled lo the peoplt of Kantat.for their ratification or rejection. There wa no ntiat about this. The pioposi'ion was a distinct on. It waa allied with no mess ure, and depended upon no contingency. They were to vote directly on the Consti tution, and if it suited them, they were to accept it, if not, they were to reject it But bow doea the case preaent itself now ? Del egates were aelected to the Constitutional Convention through a process that prevent ed a Urge majority of the people from participating in their election. Tbey euf- r j . i mi : . . . J i ry . I ierHi mis. Aiiey permiueu lue vaiuyou- , - . tion to do its work, believing tht they would have an opportunity of voting upon the Constitution as it came from the hands of those who made it . Tbey surely had ev erything to warrant this belief; for in ad dition to tbe pledge of tbe Piesident, that they were to exercise this privilege, they bad tbe word of Gov. Walker, that he was in structed by the President to see that this right wa uot infringed upon ; and more over that "if the Constitution was not sub mitted to the people he would join them in opposition toil." Could stronger assu rances have been given them t Could they have asked for anything more? Well wht was the result? The Convention framed a Constitution. It established slavery against the well-known wish of three fourth of the people of the Territory. It wa not to be submitted to them for rat ificttion or rejection, and Mr Buchanan sanctions this treachery, and endeavors to force tbe iniquitous thing, called a Consti tution, through Congress, and insultingly 'can change it after they are admitted iuto the Union under it. This is the point, then, ami th only one, that Northern ! Democrats cling to. If the Constitution my be changed immediately, say they, I why not admit Kansss at once? This, they j continue, will settle the trouble, and bo- . .... fore another year passes, Kansas will lie a free 3wle ,n() quiet will reign within her ' i,orjer. Vain delusion! A clause in the Lecompton Constitution declares that no cUtwgt shall be made in that instrument prior to the year 18t4. Nw it this Con- gtitutioa is put through Congress by Mr M.,cbtiian. it will necessarily follow that ,u atkola machinerr of government an law will be put in force under it. It will likewise follow, that every legislator, every judicial officer, and every governor &c. will take a solemn oath to support that Consti tution. How can they then make .an ef fort to change it, or part of it, when they have sworn to support the whole of it?

If it c m the doc trine will hive been get up tbat the servant js greater than his u.aster that tbe thing cieated is greater than the power that cre ated it. But again. Were a change in the or ganic law of Kansas practicable, we can as sure our readers that no such change would be made. Th argument of clunge be fore 10 J4 is not the Argument of ihe South, It repudiates it, and at tho present time there is not a Southern Democrat in either branch of Qongrest, but wbst laughs at the idea, tint the Constitution of Kansas wjll undergo a change before tbe tjir e spe cified on iu face. They aro unnimous in thi, and as if to nail thi Southern opinion upon the country, the Majority of the Sen ate Committe, reported a few days ago tht tbe Lecompton instrument was "a Conttitntion which they (the people of Ksnsas) cannot change, without retort- ing to revolution, until the gear isqi. What remains thou to be done ! If the people of tbe Northern States desire to aid tbe hardy fraeinen of Knas, tbey must protest stoutly and quickly, against the passgof thi ill-conceived and changeless Constitution, through Congress. As we have repeatedly urged before, meetings should bis held, resolutions adopted, aud s united voice sent to Congress in opposition lo this glaring and stupendous wrong. Okn. Shield. This distinguised Sol dier and Statesman, who has lately been electee' United Statas Senator by the Democracy of the new slate of Minnesota, has lately written a letter, denouncing in most uniiiistkeabla bwguage.the Lecomp ton Swindle.

By referring to tbe article below it will be teen that a Mat Meeting of lb Democ racy of Ohio, who are opposed to the Le compton fraud, will be held at Columbus on the lOtb of this month. Hon Henry B Payne, the Democratic candidate, last year for Governor, head the call. Hun dred of others hv tppeuded their name to it, and among them many who have hitherto stood at the head of the Demo cratic force, and wbo for years have con. ducted, and borne the brunt and scars of tbe political battle of Ohio. Tbey can and will accompli!, much. They consti tute the main strength of the Democratic I party in the Slate; and right glad are we tbat their eye have at length become open' ed to the double-dealing and treachery of Mr Buchauac' Adminitrtion. Right glad are we that tbey have the moral cour age to take up arms in defence of great. principles, and in the defence of the right of a noble band ofheroe in Ksnsas. Gov Wise of Virginia; Gov Walker, Hon F P 8tanton, Hon George Bancroft, Hon John W Forney, Gan Harney, and Itogetber likely, Hon S A Douglas, will be there to addres their fellow-Democats on the occasion. It will doubtless be one of the largest, as well as one of the most momentous political gathering ever held within the limits of Ohio. THE STATE BALE STAHT- Eli: LET THIS I'Luritf. KILE. A Mass Convention of tba OhioDemoc rscy bus been called, to be held in Colum bus on Wednesdsy, tbe loth of March, to protest againsj the Lecompton swindle. The call which appears in tbe Ohio States mrti of the 23d, i beaded H. B. Payne, which ays We are unable to make room for more than a small number of the names attach ed to the call, iu this issue; but we shall publish them hereafter, from day to day. From the name to this cll it is apparent that the opposition to the Lecompton scheme is deep-seated, wide spread, and universal. Tr.e largest Democratic assem blage ever held in Ohio may be confident ly looked for upon tbe 10 of March to protest against it. Governor Wise, of Virginia, Gov, Walker, Frederick P. Sianton . Oeorge Bancroft, John W.For ney, and Col, Harney.of Louisville,will be here to address the people; and it is nearly certain that Senator Douglas will also be with us. He will be unless his pretence is imperatively required in the Senate. The call for the Convention is pointed and peppery , and w hve no doubt it will be overwhelmingly responded lo by the undragooned and unterrified. It is as follow: "TII RIOHT OF THB STATES, AND THB BOVSUKIONTV OP TIH P0PLI." The undersigned, National Democrats of Ohio, believing that the rights of the States the liberties of the people, and the welfare of the Democratic parly are serious ly menaced by the attempt to force upon the people of Kansas a Constitution repudiated by the majority, conceive that it is time for tbe Democracy to assemble in mass, nnd denounce this abandonment of principle and breach of faith. Becsuse tho Lecompton plan contravene ihe cardinal principle upon which thi Gov ernment wns founded by our revolutionry fathers because it subject the great majority to the fraudulent devices of a small minority because il has created a temporary Dictatorship, and set up a renegade in it, to admit whomsoever he pleases to scats in the Legislature, and offices in the Administration department, in defiince of the note legally cast by the people becnuse it proceeds upon the heresy, that the bare majority of delegates in Convention may clothe themselves wilh abtolute power, at will, in the forma tion of the organic law and original com pact, under which the people are to live because it pejmits no appeal from the fiat of these few individual, even though all the rest of the people opposed it be cause it infringes the Nebrask Act and tbe Cincinnati Platform because it con tarns n anti-Republican and oligarchical provisian, and is clearly at war with tbe letter and the spirit of the Constitution of the United Stares because it attemp to interpolate into the Democratic creed, Fedcrslisui in it most odious form--because itiaouire the Democracy to forfeit the pledges every where made by them during the Presidential canve because it re quires them to become the instrument of ballot-box stuffer forgers and perjurer, and finally, because it is utterly indefoosi bio as a Democrstic measure and not to be tolerated even as a matter of expediency J we are unalterably opposed to itsconsuma tion, and the admission of Kausas under it. Fully convinced that such are the sentimenta of the Democracy of this State, and desiring thai they should be heard upon this subject, we invite our brethren from every town ship in the otaie, lo assemble in Mass Conventi in, at Columbus on Wednesday, the 10th day of March, 1858. AfafTOoL Harney, editor of the Low ville Democrat, the only Southern Demo cratic paper bitterly opposed to MP Le compton swindle, bandit the fellows who pitch into bun, with adroit strength, am. disposes of them with a facile ease that must make their head swim, tits posi tion on this Lecompton swindle, thus pow erfully sustained, will make him a man of mark.

During my affliction I fortunately beard of Dr. John Clark, of Berea, Cuyahoga coun ty, Ohio, and to him as tbe instrument in the hand of Providence I am indebted for my life. Dr. Clark is a regularly educa ted physician, lie studied Surgery in Ire- i' J j a i i land, ana l am un.ier lue nupressiou lie brought hi knowledge of Cancer treat ment from that country. His charges si moderate. He is candid, honest, kind, courteous and sympathizing with bia pa-, tients. And having been engaged ib tbe treatment and cure' of Cancer for more than forty years, bis well trained eye, and discreminatii:g judgment gives him advan tages that few, very few, possess. Should this meet the eye of any one suffering with ibis distressing complaint I would earnestly advise them to call upon Dr. Cltrk. And (bey should be admon ished that if they hope for a cure, be must have the case in due time. I believe that Cancer in its incipiency is purely n local disease. While it sus tains this character Dr. Clark can certain ly cure it, but if it is permitted to advance unlit the whole system becomes contami nated, it will as certainly prove fatal. ROBERT GEORGE.

Ninety days ago the Democratic party of this great nation was a unit. The Administration wns tbe pride of it friend and the envy of it enemies.

The telegraph bring us accounts of great gatherings of the Democracy st Pbt'adelpbia, New York, Columbus, Indianapolis, and a prospective great Nortb-Western Convention at Chi cago; all protecting against the admission of Kansas tinder the Lecompton Constitu tion aa a measure indefensible oo principle or policy and one which if peisisled iu will sweep the last vestige of the Democrat ic parly from this whole Northern country.
