No party it responsible fon this movemont, as it wat tho joint act of Dom otrata, Americans and Republicans. Novor tholots, it it all wrong, and it equivalent to an indufmito postponement of discussion on tho President's most extraordinary Mes sage. Tho Government organ, (the Union.) tii'ioro the recess even, sounded a nolo of triumph, that tho Message had not boon as failed by tho Opposition and drew the natural inforenco thorofrom, thut it wat im pregnable in all ill positions. When Con greet ro-asscmblot, wo thall bo told that "thero it no titno tor long tpoechet against tho Message; that alroady ono-third of tho session it passed, and noilher tho Appropri ation Hills nor tho privato claimt againtl tho Government have boon under considera tion nt all and that cxclusivo attention to thoso it indispensable." Thoso considera tions will bo doomod a sufficient apology for letting tho IYosidont and hit Cubinot go uncastigntod fur tho atrocious doctrinot of tho Mussago, and for allowing hit friends, tho 1'illibustoit and Cuba pirates, to have thoir own way, without exposition or robuko.

I ho tlimculty with tho Democratic party is not that its .Voi'Mcra members aro-not many uf thoin in I'uvor of protecting home industry, but that they dure not push this measure, against the wishes of their slaveholding associates. Tho Free Stato Democracy are dependent for oflicn, on tho Southern Democracy; and hence they neither havo, nor can have, any praetirul pnncidra, uilvorso lo the interests, real or imagiuud. of the slaveholders. The mission of thii Fren State Democracy ii, to aid tho Southern Democracy to obtain the dispensation uf the Gorui"iinei:t patronage; and thoir roward is, to receive such of it as their masters may see fit to dolo out In thorn. Iloyoiid this, Ihny daro not go, cither for a I'rotoctivj Tariff, or for any other measure distasteful to the .Southern politi cians.

On Wednesday, tho Senatn of the United Statot romovod from thu old II a!!, which had been tho scone of to many intellectual con tests, into tho new. Wo givo a telegraphic summary of the proceedings of that body, upon thu interesting occasion : Tho Senate met at noon in tho old hall, from which the desks had boon removed, but a supply of cane boimmuj chairs had been provided for their accommodation. The galleries and floor wore crowded not withstanding the falling snow, it having been understood thut tho Vice President, Mr. Crittenden, and others would speak. Thu proceedings as usual opened with prayer mid tlio reading of the Journal, after winch Mr. Stuart of Mich , mured thut as many ladies wuro enprovided with teats in tho cutlery, would bu admitted to the tlnor. Mr !l.:mliii, of Mo, objected to tho ground that tho admission of ladies would embarrass thu Legislative business, conse quently tho Indies wuro not admitted, Mr. Davis, of Miss., submitted the roport of tho Cnnimiltuo stating that tho new Chamber was ready. Mr. Crittenden moved tho adoption of tho roport. The parting from the chamber he thought wus uu event of much solemnity.

Ho then nurrated the burning of tlio Capitol by tho British army. The assembling thereafter of the Congress In Modioli's Hull, on tho lito now occupied by the geuerul Post Office, and finally the assembling in 1813 in the present building. He then went into an interesting compaii. son of tho character of tho Senate in tho early days of thu Government and now. Thou it' was almost wholly an Executive body, and much ot itt business wus transac ted with closed doors. Thu President ofion took part in dub.iies, and it wat nut .for many yean that galluiiul wuro provided fur spectators.

Ho taid ho would mako ao effort lo obtain an early voto upon Mr. Mallory also Introduced a bill to raiso the pay of tho officer! of the navy.

That thu trudo in slaves Irotn thu African coast is revived in our country thero seems to bo little doubt. The Savannah Republi can states the fact without reserve. The blacks brought in the yacht Wanderer from Ati ica have hueii landed, carried off into the interior, and dispersed among the planta tions, where, doubtless, the government will never find them. The sumo method has been udoptod hero as in Cuba ; a clmidos tino approach to the coast, a lauding effect ed at siiinii itnt'roqiiiiiiiuil spot, anil a r.pid partition of the naves among dealers, who uro notified beforehand, and are ready with securo plnces for bestowing the human cur go. Our governinent.uf'ter all this has been accomplished, sends its agents and arrusts three men, who will probably escape con viction, us most rnguos do, aud will then be ready fur another speculation in African negroos, which find a much butter market here than in Cuba. All ihis is precisely what might have boon expected. Southern politicians havo begun lo clamor fur the reopening of the African slave trade Southern politicians are con lending that Congress hut no authority to make laws prohibiting or restraining that trallio. Ii is a righteous, humaiiujegal.con stiiutionul trullio, according lo them, wrong fully ami unconstitutionally obstructed. Whure this doetiiuu is pruache). Ihuie will, ofcourso, bu tiiund men who 'ill practice according to it. Thoy will take courage from iho public avowal ol such doctrines j thoy will understand that they have friends and backon in high placet, in legislative bniliet.purhupi on the bend) and among lice officers of justice ; thoy will expect thai thero defenders ot their innocent and laud able vocation will do their best to screen them from punishment. Such aro the enc.iuragoinonts which havo given rise to tho enterprise of tbo yach: Wanderer. The cause assigned fully ac counts for tho eff.ict. - Other cargoes of Af ricans aro probably even now on thoir way to our southern coast ; whoro the traders expect to find ready markots.securo lurking places, zealous udvocules, lenient judges and friendly jini-s. Thu other day Mr. Buchanan said in his Mussago that with thu posmissiun of Cuba by thu United Status, " the lust relio uf the Alrican slave trade will disappear. The worus were scarcely roiirinled in this citv when wo hail news of thu appoaranco of the Alrican slave trade nn the coast ot the Cut ted States. How can nur government put down tho sluve I radii in Cuba when it can. not prevent il bore? It is now pretty cer tain that if we should possess Cuba, with such Presidents its we have lutoly had, the irano in slaves win continue to hu asuctivo ly carried on us it lias boon under the gov ernment of Spain. V. '. Eve. Putt. Troubles in Southern Kansas. The St. Louis Democrat has a letter Irotn Ossiwatomie, of Dec. 23, which gives its version of the lute Fort Scott troubles as follows : During the last few months there lias been contiued in Fort Scott, a young man by the mime of Ben Rice, for some of bia Jay-hawking peccadiloes during the past cnuu. nn menus nau uejtrminea to release him, and accordingly lam Thurs day evening, the 16th inst., a large num ber of his pattisans made their appeal ance at Kirt Scott, demanded hi release, which being reluxed, the door of the prison was smashed in, his chuius, by which he was fastened to the floor, were chopped loose witu an axe, ana men a chisel was pro cured, with which his chains were cut loose from his limbs, and he. with his manacles flung over bis shoulders, was paraded oil' lor home. - During the affair a Mr. John Little was killed by a Shape's ime unii, Buimig mm in uie lorehead, tearing it 0)en and leaving htm a most horrid and bloody spectacle. Several other allots wore tired, and two of the at tacking party wero wounded, and a store pillaged ol its oontents.whicu were carried oil by the assailants. One story bat it, that Mr. Little was a United States Marshal, or a deputy, and that he was killed while defending the prison; another report is thut he was in his store when killed, and that a sister and his affianced wife were by him, or in an adjoining room, screaming for his safety. Il ll is true that he was not defending the prison, il will be readily seen that the na ture of the offy nee is changed.

In June last, at Columbus, Conrad Siebuld stabbed Henry Korrell with a large butcher knife in the region of tho heart, and John Fronenbcrger struck the victim of ihefr violence on the bend with a stone. I lie murder was an unprovoked one on the part of Korrell. Hit murder ers have been in the Franklin cptmty jail awaiting trial, and a week ago Sunday they escaped with eight other prisoners. Siebold remained in the vicinity of Co lumbus, and on the 1st was discovered and pursued by three police officers. He ran across a field, and when the officers came nertr he turned upon, and with pis tol in each hand held them at ly, threat ening lo kill the first nvin who attempted, the officers firing several sho t from small pistols at him without eirect. The chase lasted some hours, a number of people joined in it, and the bloody finale is thus given by the Statesman : Seibold finally got on the track of the Central Ohio Kailioatl, aud took refuge in the first bridge over Alum Creek, about three miles eatl of this city. Seibold went ever to the east side of bridge, slop ped and swore he would kill the first-man who attempted to cross the bridge, at the same time pointing his coi ked pistols at the officers, who attempted lo persuade him to lay down bis arms and submit, promising lo treat him kindly and using every possible argument. Seibold told them he would give them twicethe amount of the reward il they would let him go, and that he would never be taken alive. Jlalf an hour was spent in thui parleying, when the officers sent to a neighboring (arm house and procured a loaded rifle, with which they hoped lo intimidate him. Bui the dcHprratu man was not lo be in timidated. Officer Whito took the title, aud called upon him to surrender, saying that they were determined lo arresl him dead or alive. To Ihis Seibold made no reply, but stepped to the end of the bridge, where the stone embankment i about twenty feet high. As the officer was about, to raise the gun to his shoulder, Siebuld turned his back to the crowd, placed the muzzle of his single barrel pis tol between his teeth, tired. MnJ fell head long down the precipice dead ! The officers and a number of others who wit nessed this terrible scene, rushed to the spot, but the desperate man was convuls ed with the mortal agony of death ; a slight tremor wus nil thu evidence of life he exhibited alter he was reached. An immense amount of blood gushed from his mouth and nostriU. So ended the life of the desperate and hardened murderer and a more shocking or terrific end could not be imagined. Seibold was a butcher in Columbus, aboul filty years of age, and left a Urge family in the most agonizing distress at ins terrioie crime ana eud. Uevtlanu Leader. End of the Cancemi Trial. The c iso ot the Italian C.tiiuumi is ono of Iho most remurkublo criminal trials on rec ord.

M.irderuus Assault. Two despera does in Cheri T Valley, assaulted Dr. Les lie, also of that lowi.ship, ()n iho evening of the 2-Itii iust., with murderous intent. The circumstances as we learn them are these : The doctor was traveling on one I of the streets in his sulky, and was met ny ono oicL'iughlin and amther confeder ate who engaged him in some personal conversation, and while thus engaged one of the men stepped behind the doctor and dealt him a blow with a heavy club, aim ing at his head but which fell on his shoul der.
