His 'establishment' was upon Pennsyl vania avenue, between the National Hotel and the capital. Let us approach and look in. You enter by a door of variegated ttaio- ed glass, which, bv gasa light, reflecU all tbe colors of a rainbow. Ascending night of rlairs, you reach a door, pull the bell, and instantly a small aperture opens and you are greeted with a pair of red eyes, ana a double row of ivory, ttt in black, which nominally belon to Sambo but which, in fact, are the property of tbe proprietor. A glance suffices. You bave filled Stmbo't eye, and are deemed passa ble.

If vou pass thit rubicon without tasting iU sparkling but dangerous waters, it is not from anyideartb of hospitality on tbe part of your persuasive host. The spa cious 'Sporting Hall' ia now visible. Tbe floor is covered with carpeting from the Orient of immense coat and marvel ous beauty . Tbn walls and adorned with superb paintings of tbe old roaster and the new, while pendant from the windows bang curtains of embroidered lace, cover ed witb golden tapestry of Oriental mag nificence; with mirron of mammoth tizt reflecting voor form and features from a score of gleaming embrasures. Along tbe ball, at convenient distances, are ranged circular tablet of polished rose wood, and tround which sra seated num bers of thoughtful, anxioua, dark visaged men, who heed you not their eyes hav ing another and stronger attraction. One would naturally suppose thit to be a thea tre for jests, drollery, snd song, or bachan alian revelling, or pugilistic encounters. Far from it. On tbt contrary, all it hush ed, silent, sepulchral. No real voica or sound Within these cheerless wills ire found. You are oppressed wilh the fearful still ness and awful silence which peivadtt the place. A laugh, a joke, or even a curse would be a sensible relief. But you bear nothing of this. A n occasional long breath or half subdued sigh it all that tells the ear tbat these mad devotect are possessed of luegs and life. An hour's inspection satisfies your curi osity, and you are about taking your de parture, wben a soft band taps you ou tbe shoulder, and a low voice aayt: Please don't leave, air, tupper will be ready io a few minutes." At precisely half put ten o'clock, the doors of tbe dining ball are thrown open, and "supper ready' proclaims an immediate arroialioe between the combatanU, aodjn vitea to a more healthy and rational duty. The long tables groan beneath their burden of gold and tilver plate, and the heapa of delicacies which surmount and adorn them.

Proas the Ohio gtete Journal, Thomas Jefferson. Randall ia bia life of Jeff non, says be finds the following passage iu Mr Jeffer son's celebrated instructions prepared for the guidance of tbe members of Congress from Virginii: 'The abolition of of domtstic ilavery it the greet object of desire, in these colonies here it was, unbsppily, introduced, in thtir infant UaU. But prtviout to the ecf anchisement of (he slaves we hva, it it necessary to exclude all further im- porlstions from Africa.

' Will it bo believed tbat ttt this ago of orld the propagation of domestic slavery, and not its abolition, it 'the great object of desire' of a large portion of the party hich Jefferson founded, and which calls itself democratic! James Buchanan; who tilt in the teat once occupied by Jeff erson regardless of tbe 'lasting intereata of tbe American Stsieetceks to make slavery National and iU baleful interests perpetual Not only so, but a large portion of bis supporters in the southern States clamor for the reestablish ment of the piratical Slave Trade. A late number of the Lou isiana Central Organ thus expresses tbe desire of tbe South: 'Next in u.gency and fully equal in im portance to an attack upon the North in iU commercial relations with the South, oy impoung specmc taxes upon mormern goods and products, and to the supplying oi toe present utraauu auu want in me .L .

Comment on this it unnecessary. When the North tball content to these demands, despotism will hsve prevailed over freedom and the Revolution will bava to be fougbt over again, Squatter Sovereignty. The Washington Union is furious on Squatter Sovoreisuty. In that paper of tbe 7tb, we find an artie'e 'The Question tf Sovereignty in the Ttrritoriss,' com mencing: 'One of the great meriu of tbe Dred Scott decision it tbe total extinguishment it givee to tbe dogma of Squatter Sover eignty in the Territories- It utterly neg atives the idea tint there it tny original jurisdiction or legislative authority in the Territory, and asserts tbit all authori ty therein ia derivative, coming from with out, and not inherent in iU inhabi tants or tribunal. IU whole theory in regaid to authority in the Territories ia, what Congress cannot do with respect to tbem therefore their own tribunal, which are the mere agenU and creatures, cannot do; tbat the supreme ultimata authority or" the Territories resides outside of them and not within. Thus the Supreme Court takes direct issue with tbe advo cates of tbe Squatter Sovereignty doctrine tbat the prime ultimate source of authori ty in tbe Territories is in the' people with in, tnd not in tbe v nited states, win- out." Tbe 'true ides' of squatter sovereignty, (iys the Ubioo, is, that sovereignty it sn attribute af tbe nation and not ot tbe in dividual, and tbat each individual, and that etch individual person is an integral participant of that sovereignty only as a member of the nationality.' At for tbe idea of Squatter toveieignty prevalent among radical politicians, tbe Union pro nounces it 'Red Republican,' and declares iU source to be found: In the Red Republican doctrines of ab solute individual sovereignty, inherent in the integer individual, and cot dtprivative from his nationality. It haa its origin in tbe same set of doctrines whieb give the negro slave the right of running away, married women the liberty to obey tbe alluremerU of passional attraction, and make all government the mere creature and.bauble of tbe mob. Tbe dogma of squatter sovereignty derivet the tupreme authority in new Territories from tbe few scattering adventnren therein, good and bad, including tbe vagabonds and outlaws wbo bave fled tbete from Jear of puniah- NO. 48. ithment, quitted organized goverameaU from rsativtstsa under iu conservative re trtinti or taught thst fortune beyond ths limitt of society, which their impru dence, improvidence, wsat of thrift, or want of honesty hsd lost them m ithia it.' Further tbe Union affirms: ' Wa have rest) thst squill r sovsrsigs ly cornet from lbs asms fraternity with red republicanism, abolition n r, woman rigbtntn, tt id mm genus of abominations snd that it will not do to allow insulations in lbs Tetvieartet, ,tbf toowfoejt oo- st ereurn assies oi in uewn, to grow up trom such a tonrce. After procssding to show thst Con gremonal Sovereignty readily does prevail in every Hep taken in the gcvernmsqt of a Territory, tbe Union remaiki io conclu sion: Ihutwsbtve explored the source of tht dogma of squatter sovereignty; and tracing the progress of each Territory of thit Union, we Lava aeen that dogma oeg alived in every set of tn hittory.

A Lesion for Suicidal Lovers. Richard Gould, a journeyman harness maker, of this city, has himself been hsr nessed by Cupid and driven to the very gates of desperation.
