not disposed ot. It will of course pass that
body, though Messrs. Crittenden and Bell,
Douglass, Stewart, Frederick, and all the

The Housa has again defeated the Defi
ciency Bill, by refusing to agree to Senate
amendments- which will probably lead to
another committee of conference. The bill
proposing to grant pensions to the soldiers of
the war of 1813 haB been under considera
tion iu committee of the whole and its au
thor, Mr. Savage, of Tenn., made an elo
quent appeal in favor of its passage, but
nothing had yet transpired to indicate its
probable fate. The report of the Kansas
conference committee was also at last advi
ces before this body, and was probably dis
posed of yesterday. It is a miserable jug
gle and doge,' but supported as it is by the
Administration forces, and having been ac-
cuesced in by, a number of the anti-Le-
compton Democrats, it will probably be a
dopted, unless, as there was some probabili

The split id the ranks of the Democracy

There were recently two State Conventions
held at Springfield one by the Douglas men;
the other by the Buchanan branch of the
party and the antagonism was so great that
the speakers of the respective bodies abused
each other without stint in the most approv
ed style of Tammany Hall blackguardism.
The Douglas men nominated a ticket, and
the Buchananites resolved to meet on a sub
sequent day for that purpose. The Douglas
assemblage was far the most numerously at
tended, and the counties represented greater
by three to one than those of the opposing
body. The Douglas men, however, stultified
themselves and injured their cause by passing
resolutions eulogistic of Buchanan. If they
hope to get Republican aid to return tlieir
chief to the Senate, we opine they will have
to change their- tune materially in that re

The enactment of this bill will go far to

been convicted of manslaughter t at
Vicksburp, Mississippi, . for : ki line a
slave, and has been aealenceittosea
en years hard labor ia the penitentia-
ry. ; The counsel for the defense urg"
ed that the fatal blow was rfven iwhile
the slave was resisting the authority
of the overseer, but, Judge Terger"
charged the jury to the efiect that the;,
slave, when his life was threatened or '
endangered by the infliction of cruel
and unusual punishment, had the right
to resist even the master,' and that nis
resistance under such' circumstances
would be no justification for killing,
him. This is proeress Southern
judges have generally ruled th.t kilU ,
ing a slave by "moderate correction" a
was no offense against the law; .ut
