In-undertaking this we depose with : confidence in friends, and till who are interested in the; prosperity of Niningvr, that our exertions will be met I with corresponding encouragement, until the improving, state of affairs shall assume its wonted strength. The lueoi*»M»ra«ilioi* ot our City. We are requested to state that on Saturday evening next, at 8 o’clock, a meeting of our citizens will be held j at the Tremout Hail, to take the preparatory steps fori btaining a City Charter. A drift of a Charter will be j read for amendment and adoption by our citizens, MCj need scarcely enforce upon our people the importance of; this matter. « ’ * Muinger vs. Hastings. j We suggested iu our last that a good tight might serve to enliven a tedious winter, and it seems the Hastings Independent is of the same mind. We must beg, how ever, that the fight, if fight there is to be, will be a clean and au intellectual one. Uwe arc to take to stig matizing each other with words that are forbidden by tbfo rules of polite society, and that make their appearance iu print only in the shape of iuitial letters and dashes, we must decline the contest. We have vividly before us the fouplet of Huai bras : * Quoth he, that man is sure y lose, That soils his hands with dirty foes.’ We have no disposition to find ourselves at the end of the contest iu the condition Of the chevalier that enter ed in' - a rough-and-tumble fight with the sweep,—al though ho eauie off victor he was so begrimed with filt h that his best friends did not know him. Decency, de cency, Mr. Independent ; ‘Assume the virtue though you have it not,’ and avoid all words that cannot bo printed. Let us premise a little. First : A large portion of the people of Hastings W;e ; respect highly and would de sire always to retain their good opinion. We have found among them some of the very first of western people,-r --liberal; entei prising, intelligent and high minded. Some few of them we count among our best friends. Even ‘he Editor of the Imlependent before he commenced To quote his profane bull against u* we looked upon as one of the best men in the county. This contest has not been begun by ns. We have uniformly treated Hast ings wit i courtesy ; we have proffered the hand ol friendship to her; we have toasted her at our public dinners ; we have poured the unction of flattery over her, and her name has been received with rapture ot ap plause by our people. W e sought to make a pair of Siamese twins of the two towns, with the Hastings branch of the Niuinger and St. Peter Railroad as the vital ligature between them. But alas ! the Dakota Serenuders and the Hastings Independent with rude hand have severed tiie cord of life, and all our visions of a new Chicago must be indefinitely postponed, to the serious detriment of Elder Creasy’s farm. In the next place : When we challenged to combat ':be whole host of Hastings, ‘Cast the gauntlet down at once, To northern wit and southern duuce,' we expected, as we before said, that the contest would be conducted in accordance with the regulations of civil ized warfare, and unless it is so conducted we cease at once. A discussion such as is already commenced in the Nininger Journal may serve to draw out the merits mid advantages of both places before the public eye ; one such as ;s begun by the Independent would only 's rve to illustrate biiiingsgate and furnish a new argu ment for the establishment of Sundiy schools. * Immodest words admit of no defence, i or want of decency is want of sense.' Casting a critical eye over the article of the Independ ent we find little to take hold of. He compliments us on our rapid growth nnd commends our energy. May hi 3 shade u nc-yer be less ! He regrets that the Dakota Serenaders have disturbed our equanimity, but hopes that it may serve the same purifying purpose that the winds do to the ocean, ‘ keep us from stinking ’ This highly classical allusion we receive in good part, and con gratulate ourselves that it was not accompanied by a few half printed expletives. We must add, however, that as the Serenadera were no doubt instituted to afford the same humane relief to Hastings, and as they have been performing their deodorising functions in their midst without avail for some time past, we may be pardoned if we hesitate to take the recipe. We are much of tlfe same mind with the youth who finding inscribed on a tomb stone the couplet:— _ , „ ‘ Oh, Christian friend, when this you see, Prepare for'death astfflpllfiw Jtt*.' - T ; r r ] Wrote under it:— 4 To follow you, we’re not content, Unless we know which way you went.’ In the same spirit we must decline sdoping the Dakota Serenade?? as a new element in our Pbarmacopise, until we see it work a cure wfeero first established. In the mean time we would recommend the liberal use q* chloride of lime in the streets of Hastings on wutj dsy*» and we know not if it would b? amiss to sprinkle a lit tle over the Serenaders themselves ! The choicest part of the whole production is contain ed in the following lines : 4 We do not claim to be your rivals. We hold that our city occupies a position which will uot for a moment tolerate the idea of entering on the lists with a village whose population at most does not exceed seven hun dred. We shall ever commend the enterprise tha»*Jhur acterizes the people ot Nininger, but the idea of hex ever becoming our j-ival is too much like Brooklyn vic ing with New York, to call forth a serious fernark.* Well done our metropolitan friend. The'fra St nig* Independent occupies Ihe position of the New Yprk JJpr aid we have not a doubt in this modern Manhattan’s Island. Hastings and New York Ye Gods. I, 700,000 versus 2,000. The Battery represented oy that lonely levee, where a melancholy poet might undisturbed write odes to solitude. The Cuaard and Collins’ ljnes represent ed by that forlorn looking flat-boat that thrice a liny per forms its dangerous voyage to the island opposite; The metropolitan and Wood police represented by those few ill paid watchmen that on dark nights frequeut deserted streets or resounding groggeries. And last and best Button's inimitable humor, Nib Jo’s enchanting harmo nios, Barnum’s collected wonders, and Christie? unlir iug wit, all finding-their exponent in that small, dirty rehearsal of stale jokes, discordant tunes and lamentablf contortions, yclept the Dakota-Berenadcrs. 1 ' The presumption cd’ a totfff numbering seven hundred in* •; bikinis entering into competition with a town num bering tvro thousand. Think of it 1 In Minnesota teq where towns date their ancestry from the flood, situ where they grow at the rate of one per cent, per year 'dark the position of things. In September lSofcp just sixteen months ago, the town of Nininger number ed about a dozen people, now it numbers jab-mi seven hundred ; and because u has met with such a sudden ri-se, carried sway by its own success, it presumes to en ter into the lists with a town which had two thousand people in it when Nininger started, and has ever since y/ith solid consistency stuck to the same number. We would ask the Hastings Independent which will wifi the race, the race-horse or the mile-stone ? Me would also propound for its solution this preblem : Is a town that advances with rapidity to be darned the rival ot a neighboring town that, stands still wifn rapid ity ? Also this : Nothing multiplied by itself for one year equals seven hundred. How long will H taite se\en hundred multiplied by itself to equal two thousand When the Hastings Independent has solved jhese questions we may have a few words more to say. In fijnf we will ruuupatc ovar bio * * I * Niainger Lyceum. Notwithstanding the unpleasant *t«te of the weather and bad' fctfndition of the streets, the turn-out at the hiecting last Monday ev ntng'was highly oonpiimentury io tie Lyelui. ; the room was so full u* to mike it uo e'u-isary to b«*ve larger 40a iter.- provided. The cbuuge ei ro' i! wiil not take place, however, until after next meeting night; the aocio*y wi 1 therefore meet ns usual in Trameui lilock, n-t Monday evening. Soilie delay occurred in opening the meeiing hy ♦he uiiawdvje.h'e absence i t tho worthy President and Vice President After falling the society to ot*U-r, and the ira***OJng w<Uiiw.. usual preliminary business, the chairman upinuieed that at\ ps-say would be read Ly ,los. iiriwwevEsq The gentleman thou came lorw; rd ayd any otVtbe »Mia! common,place and silly excuses, usual on such occasions, stated that he would invite the attention of the audience ff>r a few minute- m some remarks on ‘ Human Nutyn\ and 1 u man Passions.’ The subject''wu'V handled with great skill, and its prae ieal hints were of a kind to be usefully applied in every-day life; the gintlura-m sought rather to instruct than amuse his hearers, ur I the satisfaction express ’d by them 'justified : his expectations, that his efforts wore appreciated; We cannot speak of the subject just now. but expect to present, it in full at some future time. The debate followed the reading of the essay ; the question for the evening, “ Is the Doctrine of Popular Sovereignty iu its extreme bearing, tenable ?” was then stated, and ti e . hair called Mr. Donuelly to the floor as the leading diaputaut on the affirmative side. Mr. D. preferred to assert, iu opening the debate,-that the ppsitinn he was to uui’n’ain was impregnable, and was the foundation strine of our government, and inherently jbst end right, and iu maintaining this, it was for his op ponents, and not him, to show that the doctrine he ad vocated had any ext>eme beating untenable, Mr. Ueswick, theu .led off on the negative side, tak* ground that popular Sovereignty iti its extreme tendency was a fallacy—;m ahsurdity.;, he cited tie position of Kansas where the majority at one time had made laws to maintain their authority after another and larger influx of emigrants should have placed the con trol iu the hands of their opponents. In this case an accidental majority might, make laws that should give the power forever thereafter in the hands of a minority —and they could by enacting odious laws drive from their borders the large class who might seek to enter and form different institutions. . Contaminating vices aud vile practices ci.uld at any time be established by an extreme interpretation of the doctrine of Popular Sovereignty, by a few misguided or wicked parties, and forever hold in lawless subjection a large cases that were to be cited in the career of Kansas and Utah. ? These, he held, were instances of tho doc trine that were untenable. • • » Several gentlertien followed on either side, but they had evidently left the main weight of the argument to be advanced by thsir Respective loaders j what they did say was to carry out points already stated, without aiding in the exposition of the question.. Mr. Donnelly rejoined, and with adroit language ap peared to have disposed of all the. objections ; and from them even sought to strengthen his own side. A new speaker, by permission, gave it as bis view, that a mob might over-ride constitution and laws, because in a tem porary majority, and were justifiable, if the doctrine ot the affirmative were right. This aud kindred illustra tions were disposed of by the affirfiiative as excrescences —warts and wens on a well formed body—and not pro perly pertaining to the system. IJHt a declaration of one gentleman on the affirmative could not be overcome : he thought that the abolitionists should not be allowed to rule even if they were in the majority. When the question on the merits of the de bate was put to the audience, it was given to the nega tive. Some fine sallies of wit and repartee enlivened the debate, and caused peals of laughter from the audience. So delighted were they all that the hour of eleven ar rived before they broke up. Seventeen new members were added to the Society. The following question was selected for next week’s jdebate, “Is Capital Punishment justifiable ?” Dispu tants—J..H. Carle, affirmative ; Anthony Feed,- nega tive—with six assistants on each side. Henry Caleff was invited and accepted to deliver an essay at the next meeting. Among the audience were some ladies, many others were deterred from venturing out on account of the ,siiow that had just fallen. Mean Temperature at tit.

We cut the following paragraph from the Philadcl pftia Enquirer, which first appeared in the New York Tribune , and is going the rounds of the Press at the East: **At St. Paul, Minnesota, the thermometer on the 3d inst., had sunk to 2:.° below zero, and there had been good sleighing for a fortnight.

The French Moniteur contains a report to the Em | peror Napoleon from M. Billault, the Minister of the j interior, in which he says that in spite of all the pru* ! denee of persons engaged in commerce in France, and nil the-solicitude of the Government, several branches Of industry have, in consequence of the present com mercial and monetary crisis, been compelled either to stop their manufacture or to diminish the hours of taovk. As, at the approach of winter, many workmen and their families may be exposed to sufferings, the Minister.pro* -poses -to-gra at att«xtr-asrdinary-erediV ©i-one million for the purpose of affording relief uuder those circumstances, by enabling the communes to give employment in works of public utility, and to establish cheap food kitchens.. General Edgar Ney has been invested with the title of Prince de la Moskowa. The Belgian elections had resulted in a large Minis terial majority in favor of the liberal policy. Taere were 108 members to be elected ; of these, 70 of the new Deputies belong to- the Liberal side, and only 38 to the Opposition. John Edward Stephens, of the late London and East ern bank, had failed to appear before the Bankruptcy Court at Edinburgh, after several days’ examinatiou, and a warrant was issued for his apprehension. Henry Smith Bright, formerly a large corn merchant at Hull, had been sentenced to ten years’ penal servi tude for forgery. No further progress has been made in the launch of the Leviathan steamship. The steamship Niagara, arrived at New York on the 4th inst., and brings the following news : Great Britain. —ln the money market on the 16th there was a further decided tendency toward relaxation among the discount houses, and selected bills were readily negotiated from 8f to 9 per cent. The demand at the Bank was vt-ry light. The funds were buoyant, owing to the continued influx of gold (o the Bank, and a consequent expectation of a speedy reduction iu the rate of discount. Telegraphic advices from Hamburg reported a farther considerable improvement in financial affairs. Operations were resnmed upon the Leviathan on the 16th ult,, but with the most tremendous pressure, the vessel was only moved about three feet, when the work was suspended sine die; no less than three hydraulic rams, one powerful arab or windlass, and the double chains which drag the vessel toward the river, having been all burst, and brok en. The Times thinks that half the hydraulic presses will be required to overcome the difficulties. The Bank of France has reduced its rate of discount to six per cent for all descriptions of bills. Additional confidence was inspired by this, and the funds closed on the 18th at 67f.20. It was stated that instructions had been sent to the French Minister in China to co-operate effectively with Lord Elgin and the English naval and military com manders. The Amovican brig Silver Keys, having on board the engineers and machinery that were to have been em ployed in the raising of the vessels sunk at Sevastopol, ha c returned to Constantinople The said vessels are reported by the divers to be so. thoroughly buried in mud and earth, that any raising of them is out of the question ; the difficulties and expense of doing so being estimated to exceed the probable proceeds of salvage..
