We ehall approach the settlement of the great question now before the country, a little nearer in the conrte of the ensuing week. Mr. McClernand, of the House, will bring forward his compromise resolutions, which will substantially agree with those of Mr. Bell, of the Senate, with this difference only, that he confines the territory of Utah, inhabi ted by the Mormons, to a, much smaller space, and by that means enlarges that of New Mexico, which may afterwards be sub " divided into two or more States when they " shall have the requisite federal population. "The Northern limit of Texas and the South ' em limit of New Mexico and the Indian Ter ritory, would bo a lino drawn from El Paso ' to a parallel a little north of 34 deg. ThU ' would give Texas enough territory still for ' four Slates, which, when they shall have the , required federal population, may be admitted ' into the Uniun by the proclamation of the ' President. The territory thus cut off from ' the constitutional tenitory of Texas would ' be about two-fifths of the whole, and the sum to be paid for it would probably be fixed at the rate of $15,000,000, (as in Mr. Benton's .' bill,) to be paid either in annual instalments, or by a five per cent, U. S. Stock redeema ble in ten years. So much for Mr. MeCler nand's plan. Air. Douglass' plan contains, in the mami tho same provisions, only in separate bills, .which is, ol course, far less acceptable to the , South. Both Mr. McClernand and Mr. Doug lass make the admission of California with .her present limits and her present constitu tion, a conditio sine qua non. Gen. Cats' .views difler very little from those of Mr. .McClernand, or from those of Mcssts. Bell and Webster. So then, if you look round, .you will find all the prominent men of tho nation pretty well agreed on some plan of eettlemeut, and entirely agreed on the ne cessity of having that settlement now. On the other hand, it cannot be disguised that all the presses and letter writers in favor of the Administration (1 here distinguish be tween the Administration and the Whig parly proper) endeavor to impress the public mind with the idea that the question cannot be settled, and that it will necessarily go over to another session perhaps to another Presi dential election. Now, I can assure yon, neither Clay nor Webster, nor Cnss will con sent to such an arrangement; and they hap pen to have a greater influence in bolhllousrg than all the members of the Cabinet put to gether. Mr. Clay says he will not vest till the question is settled. lie lias no oilier ob ject in life than to restore peace and quiet to tho country, and will no doubt give Mr. Sew ard a rasping which will tell on the Whigs in tho Empire State. It is pretty well ascertained that General Cass was right, when he gave it as his opin ion that neither the Wihnot Proviso nor the Missouri Compromise could pass bothllouses of Congress. The Wilmot Proviso cannot pass the Senate, and the Missouri Compro mise cannot pass the House. If Mr. Disney's able argumentative speech of last week is an evidence of public opinion among the Demo cratic party in Ohio ; if his vote is conformi ty with his speech and I have no reason in the world to doubt Mr. Disney's moral eleva tion as a statesman all will go right. Mr. Disney will have contributed more toward tho peaceable settlement of all questions in difpute, and will have a better right to the appellation of :peaee-make" than, thus far( any other member of the llouso of Represen tatives. Observer. INTERESTING FROM MINESOTA. The St. Paul's (Minnesota) Chronicle, an nounces the return of Governor Ramsey, on the 12th of February, after a three months absence in the Eastern States. He reports Minesota stock high among tho Eastern people, and tho prospects are flatter ing that we will have a largo immigration next season.' , The St. Paul papers are filled with letters asking information from persons intending to migrate, which would seem to corroborate the statement of Governor Ramsey. I A tract of land north of St. Paul, recently sur veyed, says the Register, produces about five hundred dollars worth of cranberries to tho acre, and the streams and lakes swarm with the finest trout, bass, pike, pickerel, Sec. . White sand of excellent quality being very abundant in tho vicinity of St. Paul, some of it was taken to the Cincinnati Glass Works by way of experiment, and with it most ex cellent glass was made. The experiment was so successful that a company is forming in Cincinnati to go into the manufacture of glass at St. Paul this season. , A matrimonial fever, the Register also tells us, ha seized upon all the bachelors in that region, and wives are scarce and in demand, being the dearest article in the Minesota Market.

Christman's School took place on Thurs day last, in the Lecture room of the Ger man Reformed Church. We understand the scholars acquitted themselves with much credit. In the evening there was an exhi bition according to the published program me of exercises, consisting of declamation, reading of compositions, &c, accompanied during the intervals with vocal music, at which we were present. The room, which was handsomely decorated by the ladies was crowded to excess, and the exercises seemed to give general satisfaction. The declamation of the boys, with a fewexcep ceptions, was too rapid and indistinct in enunciation, a fault we know, to be almost impossible to prevent in youth, who find it difficult to maintain their self possession. The composition of the young ladies was highly creditable, even beyond expectation The young ladies of our Borough have al ways maintained a high character, in this branch of education. The music was well executed and highly entertaining, as we had a right to expect from the performers, Messrs. H. D. Wharton, Jacob Youngman, Martin Luther Shindel, accompanied with the splendid deep toned bass voice of our young friend Dr. Charles S. Weiser. The concluding address of Mr. Christman, on the subject of Poetry as the hand maid of civili zation, was a well written well delivered and a highly entertaining effort. THE CHAMPION OF "EnEELAND." A few weeks since we hastily threw to gether some remarks in relation to the pro posed new county of Freelaud, in a vein of pleasantry, comprehensible, we thought, to every mind of ordinary capacity. These re- marks, however, havo excited the ire of some Solomon, who gives vent to his indignation in the columns of the last Miltonian, in a strain of the "Bomhastes Furioso" style, that is really shocking to a nervous temperament. We acquit the editor of any part or lot in the matter, and we are sure the senior editor, had he been nt home, never would have enliven ed his columns, with such a wonderful ema nation of fancy, froth and fustian. Have we, indeed "held up the private opin ion of an olil tf oman No, no! we have too great a regard for the sex, to dignify such nn ama.nn in breeches, with the title of woman Though we may strip him of this title, we are willing to let others judge of the npplica bility of one, suggested by the following couplet : What tho' the genr-ona cow give me to qoaT The milk nutritions ; am I then a calf We have too much respect for the intelli gence and good sense of the members of the Bar in Milton, to suppose that any, except probably the smallest fractional portion of them, could endorse such u tissue of balder dash and nonsense. And we know ihey would regret, if they were even suspected of such an absurdity. But of this there is no danger, for the paternity of the article is made as obvious, by certain characteristic features, as if tha writer had placed hii imprint A.S.S at the bottom. We need not say, that for the members of the profession in Milton, and for the citizens of the upper end generally, we have always entertained the best feelings. For this among other reasons, we should very much regret to be seperated from them. ttT Baltimore Conference M. E.

Hall, of Sunbury, now in Califor. nia to the editors of thin paper. It will be read with interest not only by hie immediate friends, but by those whe are unacquainted with him: K7" The Pittsburgh Mercury and its Harrisburg Correspondent, handles Jesse Miller of the Keystone with great severity Jesse is determined to effect the nomination of a favorite for Canal Commissioner, and therefore launches forth his abuse against all who are likely to he in his way. Hence his abuse of Gen. Cameron, and other dis' tinguished democrats. The Mercury, we presume, Jesse classes with ourselves, among the papers with "anti-democratic tenden cies." The Mercury in regard to this mat ter says : "But who is this Jesse Miller 1 Is he a man whose intelligence, or whose character should entitle Ins opinions to any extraordina ry respect f We leave his past caieer, char acterised, as it has been, by the meanest sy cophancy, and the grossest inconsistencies to answer these questions. But ho must bo dictator! He must tram pie upon Democratic Conventions, put up hi own nominees and woe be to all those who do not obey that mandates of Jesse Miller Jesse's candidate for Canal Commissioner i now Mr. Nimrod Strickland of Chester coun ty. Jesse's candidate '. and woe unto the Democrat who breathes a word against Jesse candidate." The Electric Churn. The editor of the Howard (Aid.) Advocate, saw one of these operate, a shoit time ago, on a gallon of milk, fresh from the cow, and it produced butter in about u minutes. Finding the above going the rounds of th papers, it may not be out of place to say that we saw one of Francisco's Patent At mospheric Churns in operation one day last week, about noon, on three quarts of milk taken from the cow that morning, whic produced butter in 2J minutes, and from cream in two minutes. The butter mad from the new milk cannot be equalled I that made from cream, no matter how sweet or how well it is kept. Hence th superiority of the Goshen and Orange coun try butter, which is made from the milk, and which is often kept perfectly sweet a whole year. The right for the manufacture and sale of these churns, in Northumberland and Co lumbia counties, has been -purchased by P. B. Masser & Co., of this place. Horrible Reve.nce. Skinnino a Man' Alive. The Galena JefTersonian says, among the overland emigrats for California last spring was Mr. Green, of "Green's Woollen Facto ry," Fox River, and two of his sons, the youngest a youth. It is reported that while passing through a tribe of Indians, this young man, naturally full of mischief, killed a squaw The tribe having become well advised of the faot, hastened after the company and over took them, and demanded the murdeter. At ' first the demand was resisted ; but after the Indians had informed them that they would destroy the company if their request was not granted the youth was surrendered into their hands. They then stripped him, and in the ; presence of his father and the whole compa ' nay, they shinned him from hit head to his feet. ' He lived four hours after he v. as thus flayed. The Pittsduro Chronicle says the girls wear to much scarlet this winter, that they seemed clad in blushes, like modest worth or a boiled lobster. One we saw yesterday even went so far to have Vermillion slippers and ted hair r Ne wonder the fire bells rang. Another Union meeting was held in Philadelphia a lew days since, which took grounds against the proceedings of the meeting of the 22d of February, at the same place, in regard to the slavery question. The last meeting is opposed to the further extension of slavery in territory now free. Hon. John M. Reed addressed the meeting. His speech, it is said, was an able argument on the subject, showing the right of Con gress to impose such restrictions. The Pennsylvanian, we observe, is finding fault with these proceedings, advocating, as usu al, the Southern side of the question. Al though, Pennsylvania may be willing to make almost any sacrifice for the take of the Union, there can be no doubt, but that there is an almost perfect unanimity with the people, in favor of the restriction of slavery to its present limits, though they may be willing to waive it for the sake of peace and harmony. C7 Coffee. The high price of cofiee has induced a number of substitute that we tee recommended in the papers, such as rye, beans, &c. There is, however, a tub. stitute much cheaper and infinitely superior to any we see recommended, that is seldom noticed we mean good cold water. Coffee we believe, has more to do in causing dys pepsia, than any thing taken into the sto mach. The great rise in cofiee is princi pally owing to the tyrannical conduct of his sable Majesty Faustiu the 1st, the Em peror of I lay ti. UAnnisnuiio a- siivninv rail road. We see that considerable opposition is made to the passage of the supplement to this act, by the Philadelphia interests, on account of a clause which permits the com pany to connect the road with any railroad now constructed or to be constructed, through Perry or Cumberland counties. This they allege, is but a trick or fraud, to make a connection between the York and Cumberland road and the Pennsylvania rail road, for the benefit of Baltimore, which is 26 miles nearer than Philadelphia. When this same argument was used to persuade the Philadelphiant to make the Sunbury and Erie Road, it was not heeded, and now forsooth, they are opposed to any improvement in that direction, for fear Baltimore will overreach them. Since the above was written, we received the follow. ing letter from a correspondent at Harris burg, with the gratifiing intelligence of the passage of the bill in the House. The bill was so amended as to confine them to the county of Dauphin, and to cross the Susquehanna river above the junction with the Juniata. IUnRisnuRG, March 20, H50. . B. Masser, Esq The supplement to the Harrisburg and Sun bury Railroad Charter was taken up yester day and although considerable opposition was manifested, passed first reading. It was again taken up this morning, and on motion of the Representative from your county (Mr. Packer) passed second and third readings. It will now go to the Senate and will, I think, past that body at toon at it can be taken up. Yours, &e., E. Y. B. W The bill for the election of the Judges, passed the House on Friday last, only three members, viz : Judge Porter, Cornyn and David Evans, voting against it. To make it a part of the Constitution, now only requires the sanction of the peo ple which it will receive at the next elec tion. The next legislature will then pro vide for the election of the judget at the next ensuing election. KJ The Forrest Divorce Case. The New York Mirror alluding to the fact that the Senate reported a bill in thit case, says, that "judging of the character of that body from their conduct on similar occasions, they would not be surprised that the report would be adopted." Our legislature, we confess, has become somewhat notorious for its liberality in granting divorces, especially to pretty and interesting women.

Harrisburg, March 19th, 1850 A new interpretation of the resolution which recently passed both branches of the Legis lative to the election of Judges by the people, has been given, in a written opinion of Walter Forward. The resolutiou declares, that not less than three months after its passage, the amendments embodied in it shall be submit ted to the people It is the opinion, so I am informed, of Mr. Forward, the intention of the framers of the Constitution was, for any amendment to be voted for at a special elec tion, as the people could then vole without any bias. In view of this, a bill will be in troduced, providing for the special election to come olf tome time in July, which, if pas sed, will give the people an opportunity of voting for their Judges at the October elec tion. It is to be hoped no impediments will be thrown in the way of a consummation to devoutly to be wished for. Auburn, California, Forty mills north Sacramento City, I January 20, 1850. ) Since the commencement of the rainy sea son, we have been barely paying expenses, which is quite contrary to our expectations. We, however, work every favoiable day. Another treat thing against us is, the tcaroity of gold in this vicinity. We have all along been at work in the ravine which we started at, working out the sides, which pays not more than 4, 5 and 6$ per day to a man.- As soon as the rains are over, I am going far her North to work in the dry diggings, and will remain there until the rivers are low enough to be worked. The winters here 1 would prefer to our cold ones at home, if it were not for the fre quent rains. When we have a clear day, il is delightful neither too cold, nor too warm I am far from believing this country to be as unhealthv u it is represented. It is true we hear of a great mnny deaths; mil this is in a majority of eases, bronchi iiIhuiI by ex posure tha few in the "Old Thirteen'' rould undergo. The little sickness I have evperi enced since here, was produced by exposure that would have laid me up for months nt home. Sacramento city hat turned out, at many persons predicted --a miserable location for a town. Being very low, the greater part of the city is overflowed whenever we are viei ted with a heavy rain. There was a ball at Sutlers Fort last week Quito a large and respectable company were present to engage in the merry dance. Al though we cannot number, in proportion to the population, as many of the fair sex as you ; slill there are some here, and, I can as sure you, Ihey are good specimens of the sex In fact, they are perfect heroines; and, in coming to thit distant land, to share the fate of the sterner tex, in a lottery more hazard out than those which infest your cities, they have exhibited a tpirit ef devotion and disin terestedness that deserves the highest com mendation. Those at the ball were not only handsome, but some of them were very in telligent. I never saw a company of persons eniov themselves more, although many of them had met with nothing but miafortuu since their entrance in thit land of "golden dreams." This re-union had a very happy effect on all present. The unfortunate turned to their arduous labors with renewed energy and spirit, hoping, with the smile o fortune, to be soon able to commingle with their friendt al home in the same happy mm ner as they did at the Fort. But few letters mid papers reach me fro home. The Post Office nt San Finnrisco in a very confused condition. Many of the letters are never delivered ; and when we do get them, they cost us a sum that would not be considered low postage with yon. From San Francisco to this place, the carriage of a letter is $2.00 to San Frnucinco 31,00. The express lider was drowned en his way to this place, and all the papers he had with him were lost, among which were, I suppose, my anxiously looked for letters. The Indians are still stealing cattle, Sic., from the Americans, both North and about these diggings. Some 20 miles North of this the Americans burnt their village, anil killed several of thrni for it. They, as is natural, retaliate, ami there i now a married man, with a large family, missing. Drer have been very plenty nbout here, until the prem'iit month. Grisly Bears are in rathpr loo great numbers for comfort. A number of them, with their cubs, have been killed in thin ueiuhboi hood. The Wolf, or Kuyota, are around us as thick as bees. They are a pretty animal about as large as a com mon sized dog, and perfectly harmless. I like to hear them howl at night. They do it to perfection. Christmas I spent quite plensaully willi Mvshik. Rubin and Markley, ol Weslmorelaiul Co , Pa.

It hat been u high, however, as 81,25 per pound by the barrel. Fortunately for us, if even the dust is scarce at the present time, we have on hand a good supply of provisions. We were visited with snow the other dayi which lusted but a few hours, the tun being too hot to leave it lay any time, snow is teen distinctly all around ut on the high mountains. Yours truly, E. M. HALL. CHEMICAL AFFINITY. - Thit law in Chemistry it remarkably illustrated in the equilibrium between the supply and watte in diseased animal matter through the agency of G. W. Merchant't Celebrated Gargling Oil. It it well known that chemical action takes place only under certain circumstances; thai tome bodies have no tendency lo unite pro periiet. The fotmer are said lo have no if riNiTY for each other, ibeir mixture it mere ly mechanical, and no change laket place. The latter cltu of bodies, in which it inclu ded the Gargling Oil in its application lo mor bid animal matter, act by their affinity for each other, their action being productive of chemical phenomena, and Ihe properties of one or both are altered. Hence the ttiong affinity of the constituents of the Garbling Oil to unite with the elements of the moibific matter, may be referred lhe beneficial influ ence exerted over so great a variety of disea ses, most of which were considered at incu rable.
