After an effort of nine weeks, the House of Representatives has succeeded in electing a Shaker, by a purality vote. A Resolution to elect by plurality was often presented, but as often defeated by Administration members, Southern Amer icans and Doughfaces. But on Saturday of last week, the indications of the day previous having been decidedly favorable to the election of Mr. Aiken of South Carolina, a Slaveholder owning a thou sand slaves it was adopted, and Sir. llauks was elected by a vote of 103 to 100 for Aiken. The Doughfaces, not daring to go quite so far as to vote for the million aire Slaveholder, scattered their votes. And thus has ended a contest, wholly without a parallel in the history of the country for its protracted length, and which should have ended on the very first day of the Session. The people snpposed they had elected a decided Anti-Nebraska majority to the House ; and they did, in f iet, elect a majority who professed, at the time, to he firm Anti Nebraska men. But some dozen or fifteen of the number lave proved recreant, as Northern mem bers have frequently before done. In deed the misfortune to be betrayed by the Kepitftentntive, seems to be peculiar t the North. Whoever heard of a South ern member's being elected on a distinct Wne, as were these latter-day Dough faces, and there proving false and treach erous to his pledges ? The thing never was known, and never will be known. And we honor this trait in the Southern character, as much as we detest its oppo site as exhibited at the North. Had Northern members, in years past, proved as true to the convictions of their con st!', uenls and tu the just expectations that were formed of them, as they of the Souh, we should never have come to the present pass in relation to the Slavery question. It Li treachery, downright treachery, that has brought us where we are; and if we arc to suffer still further defeats and in dignities, it will be because the race of Traitors and Doughfaces is not yet ex tinct ; and that it is not, the present House of Representatives affords a damning proof. According to predictions, wc suppose the Union is to go to pieces, now that Mr. Bunks is elected; for it was gravely proclaimed i the debates during the con test for Speaker, that if he, or any one of his sentiments, were to be elected, the " Union would be seriously endangered !" Whenever the schemes of the Slavery txtensionists are likely to be thwarted, they set up this disunion bng-bear, which lias become too senseless and and stale to frighten even old women and children. 1 low many times have we not heard this hue-and-cry within the last dozen years! In every single instance when the South have had up any one of their numerous schemes to strengthen or extern! the " preuliar institution," and such scheme has met with resistance from the North, the cry of "disunion" has been sounded in our ears ; and, we regret to add, that so effectual has it been, that the South have eome to believe that this pitiful scarecrow is the one thing needful tocarry them on from triumph to trtumph, until the whole boundless Continent shall be one great Slave field. It is strange, passing strange, that at this late day, there should be any left at the North who do not see through the trick! "Dissolution, of the Union," in deed ! Well, if the bond of Union be no stronger than this all comes to, then " let the Union slide !" If the interests to be oenelited by ttie I nion, are so sli"ht if the attachment to the Union is so frail that it may be dismembered by any of the turtisand-nd-one things that have been proclaimed a fcwfik-ieiit cause for its dis uliUion, then the sooner it is dissolved the VetUr it will be for all concerned. It tlw Union is held together only by a " rope i sand," then it is not worth pre serving. And. w- will add, that if is to exist simply to strengthen, extend and perpetuate the institution of Slavery then it cannot be dissolved too soon for the credit of the North. But we have no fears of a dissolution f the Union, and cannot sufficiently detest the craven spirit of those who tremble and cringe every time this miserable bug-bear is hld tip before them. Sensible men despise and defy it. We rejoice at the election of Mr. Banks, as a substantial Anti-Nebra-ka triumph. And we have the more reason t rejoice, as the Speaker has been eject ed in the interest of the Slaveholders for the last twenty years, with the single xception of Mr. Winthrop's election 8 years ago, and as, thus far, the- Speaker in office at the time of the Presidential election, ha? been of the tame politics as lUt W13Uil CIVJVICU IU lUttk UiliUV. 11 C augur some good from this omen, though it may, of course, fail this time. And, then, the Speaker has the appointment of all the Committees of the House; and on this account the election of Mr. Banks is a triumph, for the Committees will now be so constituted as to give a respectful hearing to such projects as are calculated to subserve the interests of Freedom, instead of being kept back or. entirely suppressed in Committee, as in times past. Any measure looking to the inter ests of Slavery has always received prompt action ; and we rejoice that, for this once at least, the friends of Free dom can have a proper hearing before the Committees of the House. It begins to look as though there may, ere long, be a North. All honor to the noble band who stood firm in the support of Banks during the protracted contest. The South has not been wont to witness such firm ness on the part of the North, but we trust this augurs a better future. President's Special Message. President Pierce has made another bid for the Presidency, by laying before Congress a special message on Kansas. Fearful lest his last annual message might not be considered strong enough on the side of slavery, he has lately doubled Mb own bid. We had hoped when we published his annual message, that we should not sooa be called upon to publish such another abject document. But our hopes are blasted ; the first has been eclipsed by this special insult to the north. The greater part of the message is de voted to abusing and misrepresenting the people of the free States, in which the Free Emigrant Aid Societies, come in for a liberal share. According to the President's views, these societies are lit tie better than so many bands of marau ders, whose only object is to disturb the public peace. He seems to think that the people of the free States are the only ones in fault in the disturbances which have taken place in Kansas, and that the Missouri " border ruffians" have been and r...i. i t i-, tt uic penecuy iamD-iiKe. lie calls upon the government to appropriate money to Uetray the expenses of keeping order in that territory. "What the President's in terpretation of the word "order" is, we know not, but suppose that it means the slave-holders of Missouri shall be allowed to continue their depredations, and to override, rough-shod, the free settlers of Kansas We apprehend that Congress will not sink itself so low as to assist the Missourians, and their leader, the Presi dent, to cut the throats of the anti-slavery men ot that territory. A considerable part of his message is devoted to venting his spleen upon Gov. Keeder, who, he would have us believe, has been the chief instigator of the dis turbances. How true this statement is, each of our readers is capable of judging for himself. Gov. Reeder to-day stands higher in the estimation of the people of the whole country, than does President Pierce. The south may love the Presi dent's treason, but they must despise the traitor w1k has thus wantonly betrayed the expectations of his friends, for the mere bauble of the Presidency The President recommends that when the people of Kansas shall desire it, a convention of delegates be chosen to form a Si&te constitution, fmd that they School-House Burst. We learn that the School House in District No. 13. in Derby, was destroyed by fire on Sun- day morning last. The fire was discov ered about six o'clock in the morninj. How it originated is not known. Loss $400. Insured in the Vermont Mutual for $200. Still an other fire is Derby. The Blacksmith Shop including tools be- longing to E. K. Hammond, of West Derby, was destroyed by fire last Mon day evening. TriAXKS. Our thanks are due to Hon Justin P. Morrill, of the second Con gressional district, for valuable public documents. Congress. The past week has been (like the eight preceding ones) devoted to the wrangling for Speaker. The day after the election of Speaker was occu pied in administering the oath to mem bers ; which is the latest up to time of going to press. be admitted into the Union. This is wc enough. The message is altogether too long for publication in the Standard, else we should give it to our readers through its columns, tliat they might know from his own lips to what low depths of political baseness Mr. Pierce is capable of descending. Miserable, however, as his course has been, treacherours as has been his line of policy, truckling as he has been to the interests of the south, still there are those in the north, in our own State, and in our own county, too, who can be found to ad vance his claims for a re-nomination to the Presidency, lending their influence whichever way he may pull the string. It is disheartening to think that there are men in our country whose highest ambi tion is to dance attendance upon all men high in office, hoping thereby to receive a crumb that falls from his official hand. Such men, had they lived in the time of our Savior, would have underbid Judas Iscariot and delivered Lira up for halA me money, which history tells us that individual received. We have received from Mr. J. II. Graham, principal of Northfield In stitution, a very neatly printed catalogue of that school, from which we learn that it is in a very prosperous condition. The whole number of students attending the past year, foots up 692. Will the preceptors of the Tarious schools in Orleans County inform us as to the condition of those under their charge? It will ba of interest to every person in the county. From California. From the mines we have the most cheering accounts. The rains have given the miners plenty of water, and plenty of work. The exports of wheat the past year have been quite large equivalent to 132,560 barrels of flour. The total amount of wheat raised in California is estimated as high as 2,525,554 bushels, The election for Alderman in the 4th and 7th wards in San Francisco, resulted in the choice of II. D.

The gold exported during the year, as shown by the custom house books, was S45,182,C31. The total value of exports from San Francisco during 1855, including quick silver, but excluding' gold, was estimated at $4,189,611. Among these exports were 22,443,800 pounds of flour, 8,271,- 400 pounds of wheat, and 7,221,500 pounds of - barley. The exports, exclu si ve of gold, to New York, were estimated to be worth $833,062. OEEGOS. The latest dates' from Oregon are to the 20th ult., brought by the Panama, which arrived at San Francisco on the 24th. Previous accounts gave the intelligence that Col. Kinney was marching with his command to attack Fort Walla Walla, which was then in possession of the In dians. No intelligence has been received from the expedition, up to the date of the sailing of the Panama, and fears were entertained for the safety of Col. Kin ney's party. SANDWICH ISLANDS.

Christian Messenger, glf The Lake froze over last week, Wednesday, 23d. For several days after, streaks of open water were visible to the North and South, but the ice seems now to be tolerably firm though the snow which fell apon it yesterday and last night does not promise the best of crossing. The average time of closing, for our Lake is about the 7th of February. Last j ear it closed on the 5th. Free Press. George W. Woodhouse and Chas. W. Little were brought before Justice Hollenbeck, Monday, charged with dis turbing public worship in the Methodist Free Church. The acts complained of consisted of uncouth noises, card-playing and " carrying-on " of various sorts in the church during the services, and haVe been continued for a number of evenings. Woodhouse was fined $10 and costs. Little escaped with a severe reprimand. The punishment might have been more severe without particularly shocking the feelings of the community. No gentle man will be guilty of deliberate and per severing attempts to ridicule and inter fere with religious worship, and lovers of decency and order will be glad to see the law applied in its utmost rigor in all such cases. One or two other vounsr men. - O 7 whose names have not been furnished us, were also concerned in the disturbances alluded to. They, and all others similar ly inclined, will do well to take warning by this transaction. Free Press. fiT A drunken row took place Sunday evening, on Lake street, in the course which a young French woman, was knock ed down and terribly beaten by a man named Wood. The woman was in an advanced state of pregnancy, and was much, perhaps fatally, injured. She re mained insensible this morning. Wood is in custody to await the result. David Minor, Joseph Robear, Jo.

Some time since, a preacher and a most excellent man, be came much concerned on account of the spiritual condition of one of his female flock, a very exemplary lady, and hug ged her so zealously that he broke her ribs !

Indian Troubles iw Florida. A dispatch from Key West, dated Jan. 21st, says the Indians have commenced the in discriminate slaughter of the whites by murdering two of the settlers'twclve miles from Fort Adams. Two men, Peter Johnson and E. Ranall, were killed by them on the 7th. The U. S. troops were sent in pursuit of them, but after scouring the country for several days they could not succeed in falling in with them. The settlers were in great trepidation, and were coming in, demanding the protec tion of the troops. The U.

On account of the Indian disturbances the erection of the Light House is postponed, an the materials of the Delaware will be sold.

Without that parental restraint which follows the chil dren where ere they go, but little can be done for their improvement.
