The Senate lias been organized, and
the different cimmittces appointed. As
was (expected, these committees have
been 60 arranged, as to give all the fcd
Tsntage to the Administration pro-Slavery
party. Where northern men, mem
bers of the opposition party have becnap
pointed at all, they have been tacked on the
tail of the committees, and the chairman
always taken from the Administration
party, in nearly every case. !
In the House, do organization has yet i
taken place. The ballottings, since the
withdrawal of Mr- Campbell's name,
have ran for Mr. Banks 105, Richard
eon, 11 ; Fuller, 33, and a few scatter
ing necessary to a choice, 113. Fifty
ballottings have been made, and the or
ganization of the House seems no nearer
than on the first day of the session.
Those men from the free States, who
were elected as Republicans, and yet
defeat the wishes of their constituents,
and the Republican party, to gratify
their own private ends, are digging their
own political graves. They will be
marked, and consigned to the oblivion
their acts merit. We regret to acknowl
edge that two of them are from this State,
John Scott Harrison and Mr. Moore.
These men may act conscientiously, but
we doubt it. No man has a right to de
feat the accomplishment of great and
worthy ends, either, to gratify personal
friends, injure personal enemies, or for
self aggrandizement. When summoned
before the bar of public opinion, some
other and better excuse, for these acts,
will be demanded than thatcf having
their own axes to grind.'
Kansas Matters.
It is not in the Free States alone, that
the actions and doctrines of Stringfellow,
Atchison, and their horde of ruffians are
viewed in the true light ; but in Mis
souri itself, a portion of the press, (sus
tained we doubt not by the honest, and
reasoning men of Missouri,) speaks sen
timents upon these subjects, which does
honor to itself. It looks upon the Kan
sas question with patriotic eyes, and
states the facts, and their consequences
fairly. We give below an extract from
the St. Louis Intelligencer, a Democratic
paper, published in a Slave State, but
edited by a man, and not ruffians.
The first news of the affair that reach
ed Jefferson City, where the Missouri
legislature is in session, was by a dis
patch from Mr. Boone, a citizen from
Jackson County, Missouri, to Mr. McCar
thy, a member of the Missouri Legisla
ture. That dispatch contained this sen
tence :
' "We want help. Communicate this
to the friends."
Now, in the devil's same, who is it
that " ants help ?" And what do they
watt that "help for ?" Do the citizens
of Missouri want "help?" Who or
what is putting the citizens of Missouri
in peril so great that the legislators and
the friends" at Jefferson must "help?"
. It is not the Government of Kansas
that wants help ? If so, let them call on
President Pierre for assistance. Kansas
is under the care of the Federal Govern
ment. Missouri has no duty to perform
in the premises. If the National Gov
ernment cannot take care of its own pets
and appointees, it'! Reeders and Wilson
Shannons, why let Pierce resign and 8
new Government come in. The people
of Missouri are not the ones to be called
on to back up the miserable political
puppets that Frank Pierce shall send out
from the Eastern States to play the fool
and introduce blood-shed and anarchy
in Kansas. If the imbecile of the White
House had possessed the good sense or
the justice to put over Kansas, at the be
ginning, a Western man of high chaiac
ter, courage vnd experience, there nev
er would have been a particle of trouble
in forming the community there into a
quiet and thrifty State. But, instead of
that, we had Reederand his FreeSoilism,
then Shanuon and his Pro Slaveryism
all wretched, time-serving, place-seeking
demagogues, who have played out their
wrecklesa games for political arnan
dizement and drawn upon poor Kansas
the curse and lawlessnes and blood I
If the people of Missouri would take
the advice of the Intelligencer and let the
people of Kansas alone, Presiden Pierce
would have no occasion to senitle fed
eral troops there. If they persist in their
bullying and insolence towards the Free
State settlers, God only knows how and
where the thing will end.

The Legislature.
The Legislature of this Slate, meets
on the first Monday in January.
It will have a vast amonnt of business
to perform, and but a short time to per
form it. There are reforms which are
imperatively called for. The burden of
taxation should be lessened. The ten
per cent, in erest law, which has made
usurers and shavers rich, and impover
ished needy and honest men, should be
changed. Short annual sessions should
take the place of biennial, and measures
to alter the Constitutionin this respect, by
bringing it to the test of. a vote by the
people, should be taken immediately.

A Nest of Counterfeiters Broken Up.
Police officer, Hague, of Pittsburgh,
having learned from counterfeiters arres
ted in Washington county, Pa., of abogus
factory in this slate, after obtaining as
sistance of Michael Gallagher, formerly
Marshal of the city of Cleveland, pro
ceeded to Natchez, in Licking county,
about eight miles irom Newark; The
Pittsburgh Gazette says :
"There they made a descenl upon lhe
house of a man named Robert Sears, ar
rested him and search the house, where
they found a lot of materials for manu
facturing bogus coin, and a galvan
ic battery. Him they sent to Zanes
ville in charge of U. S. deputy Marshall
and the Marshall of Zanesville, who they
had added to the party, while Hague
and Gallagher laid over to watch the
premises, satisfied that there would be
further developments. They staid on
watch all of Saturday night, and about
daylight on Sunday morning saw a man
come uui iu me c.fuu-nuii . i-iyci us
in his hand. They followed him, and,
as he w as hiding it in the wood, they
sprang upon and secured the man and
the carpel bag. The former proved to,
t, a a man TiflmpH T Yirrr. V Ttrnvn n.-lin
was the galvanizer for the concern. In
the latter was found $100 in spurious 2
gold pieces, a handful of bogus gold dol
lars, a lot of halves, quarters, and ten
cent pieces all counterfeit, and a consid
erable quantity of the material for manu
facturing the same. It is said that Sears'
house is the head quarters, from which
not only the Washington county counter
feiters, but numerous oihers, both in
Pennsylvania and Ohio have procured
their supplies. The whole affair of the
arrest has been very cleverly conducted."

" Wheal. The price continues at SI.

counties of Bradly, McMinn and Monroe,

WASHINGTON CITY, Dec. 11, 1855.
Editors of the Chronicle : There is at ;
this time much feeling existing in this;
city in relation to Speaker. I regret lo ,
say, that the forty-first ballot has just
been taken. Banks, the Republican can- j
didate, received 107 votes. This is the j
fourth lime he has received that number, j
Six more votes would elect him, while j
there are fourteen members from the j
fiee States, elected on the Anti-Nebras-j
ka issue, who now refuse to f-uslaiu the i
AnU-Nebratka candidate. I am sorry j
to say two of them are from Ohio, John ;
Scott Harrison and Mr. Moore, from the j
Scioto dii ti ict. Th- re are also two from j
Indiana, Messrs. Dunn and Scott. Beside
he5e, there arc from New York and
Pennsylvania, len members, elected on
that isue. These gentlemen doubtless
act conscientiously, and are responsible
to their constituent. On them, I would
cast no censure, while 1 ay very frank
ly, that their course has excited some
surprise and much regret. I have nev-

The Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Gazette thus shows up the
unconstitutional financiering of this Ad
ministration :
The lrst session of the Democratic
Congi ess under Mr. Polk thought thai
$1,500,000 was sufficient for the expen
ses of collecting the public revenue under
the incoming Whig administration of
General Taylor, and accordingly appro
priated only that amount, though Mr.
Walker had upwards cf two millions al
lowed to him for the same purpose, and
Genera! Taylor's administration was to
have all the additional expenses to pro
vide for on the Pacific Coast. The re
duced amount was, of couise, entirely
inadequate, as was well known at the
time, and the only object was to embar
rass the new administration ; but at the
first session under General Taylor the
amount was increased to 82,250,000.
With this sum Mr. Meredith under Gen
tral Taylor, and Mr. Corwin, under Mr.
Fillmore, managed tomb along, always
keeping within the appropriation, not
withstanding the great addition for the
expenses of the different Cuftom Houses
on the Pacific, wheie all the salaries
are at least two-fold what were paid on
the Atlantic, and other expenses three
or four-fold. But the present economical
Democratic administration have been
unable to make both ends meet, and it
appears have been " running ahead of
tlie constitution" ever since they came
int(office, in the item of expenses, and
have actually been expending for the
expenses of a cm rent fiscal year, the
amcun's appropriated for the next fol
lowing year ; so that when a new fiscal
year commenced, (the present one for
instance j a large sum belonging to said
year jiad a-rtady been expended for the
preccding year, and now it is understood
lh. v are uriwilJinir any lonzer to contin
ue this system, or probatory unable 10 do
so, from the constantly increasing defi
ci-ncy ; and the Secretary therefore in-
,ends lo av lhc slate oJ tne affair bofore
Congress, and to ask for an additional
appropriation in the deficiency bill.
What the present Congress will say to
this excess of expenditure without their
previous sanction, over the sum appro
priated, it is hard to predict, and stiil
more, what they may think as to the il
legality of the proceeding, in taking the
money intended for a future year to meet
expenses incur.ed in u previous one. It
, is in diRct Violation of the Constitution,
Varies and expenses. When there was
a short session and tho appropriation for
the ensuing u sea I year mu-tbe passed
by 3d March, four months before the
fiVcal year commenced, it was all smooth
sailing on the plan they adopted, but it is
otherwise in a long session, when the ap
propriation bills will probably not pass
until the new fiscal year commi-nces,
and when the fund may be entirely ex
hausted probably three or four months
previous to the 3p:h June next. What
an outcry and clamor thi3 would occa
sion if done under a Whig administra
tion. What extravagance as well as
illegality would be charged aain.-t
them !

True Version of the Kansas Affairs.
In the New York Timcx'ii Mondny, we !
find a letter frcm L-iwrcnc-, K. T., da- i
teil Nov. 27th, iVum which we take the'
following succinct account of the origin
of the Ktinsas difficulty : ' j
Last Wednesday, oiib Mr. Dow, f:om !
Oiiio, discovered that his neighbor, a!
Mr. t-oh-man, lo:merIy from Missouri,
was cutting down tru s and preparing
t burn a limekiln cn the claim belong
ing to him, when he went to him, reques
ted hi.n to de.-ist, telling him i.ht he had
burnt one kiln on I is claim, nnd that he j
could not bum ano'her. There was aj
man helping Mr. Coleman at tlu time by j
tin; uame of i'uokley, and a neighbor of j
Dow s ntimed br:inon. wen! a;ong with
him as he wen? up to order Coh-uinn off.
After having : otne pretty sharp words,
Coleman and i.uckh-y left and went away,
whereupon 1'ow and Branson returned
home, they boMi living in one house,
Dow being single and boaiding with
I'-ranson. Soon alter, IhesatLc day, Dow
had occasion to go by the house of Cole
man to a blacksmith's shop on buMiicss.
Before he went, Branson urged him to
take some kind of weapon, as it was sus
pected that a gang would be at Cole
man's, where a low grocery was kept,
but Dow refused to take any, and said
he was nolafraiJ it'auy of them. He went
up to the shop, iud there he found Buck
ley, who commenced abusing him by
words and daring him to step out of the
door and fighl him. Bucklev, in the
meantime, stepped out aud cocked his
oun, threatening to shoot him. Dow
paid litile attention to him, but as boon
as he got his business done with the
blacksmith, which was getting a piece
of iron fixed, he stepped out and started
for home.
Some little distance ahead cf him he
saw Coeman sitting beside the road
with a shot gun in his hand. Dow came
up and passed him ; Coleman raiding up
aud taking deliberate aim at Dow, snap
ped a cap. On hearing this Dow turn
ed about lo see what il was, when Cole
man re-snapped his gun, raised it to his
eye, and shot Dow dead on the spot.
Several buckshot en'cred his breast, kil
ling hini at once. This was all done in
sight of Coleman's house and the groge
ry, and happened at 1 o'clock. No one
ol tho-e gathered about Coleman's house,
and there was some eight cr ten, went
to remove the body or to inform any
one of the murder. So the dead body
lay by the roadside till five o'clock, when
Branson somehow or other heard of it,
and went and had the body taken care
The following night Coleman and
Buckley escaped to Missouri. Some say
for one purpose some for another. One
rumor is that he has gone to give him
self up to the proper authorities. But
nothing has up to this date been heard of
Yesterday a public meeting was held
in the neighborhood, when the testi
mony of several persons was informally
taken, which went to show that Coleman
wilfully and coolly murdered Dow, with
out any other cause than having this dif
ficulty with him about burning the lime
kiln. Resolutions were passed expres
sive ef lhe sense of the meeting, and a
salute fired over the grave of the lamen
ted Dow.
Coleman and all engaged on his side
are rabid Pro-Slavery men, and this is
not the first time ihey have outraged
public sentiment by their acts. They
have driven several Free-State men off
from their claims ne-ir by, fired upon
them, fcc. Dow and his friends are for
a Free State. I am personally acquain
ted with Mr. Dow, and have been for
about a year, and have always found
him to be a very peacelul and moderate
man. This public meeting numbered
about eighty men, among whom was a
part of a military company, armed with
Sharp's rifles, who live between Law
rence and the place of the murder, which
was Hickory Point, some len miles south
of us.
On the return of this company in the
night, tiny discovered a parly of horse
men at the town of Blanton, coming up
in their rear, and, in accosting, a voice
was heard "iJranson is here a prisoner,"
nd, upon furl her inquiry, il was made
known that the Deputy Sheriff, who
lives in Missouri, had taken a Dosse. aud
in the evening after lhe company had
left Hickory 1 oint had arrested br.inson
on the oath of three Pro-Slaveiy men,
friends of Coleman, that they were af.aid
Branson would kill them. Ncbody had
ever heard of this, aud nobody believed
it now. Il was got up to help Coleman,
Ti.e company then told Branson to come
with them, when the Sheriff threatened!
to shoot him if he moved, but Branson;
got off his mule and joined the company,
when the Sheriff left, saying he would
go down and get 10,000 men and come
up and see what he could do. The Sher-

'for the benefit of commons school ;"
an I by further cuni.ing maneuvering one

Heavy Verdict.
A verdict was rendered in the Court
of Common Pleas yesterday against Da
vid Clark, for the" sum of 13,700, be
ing the amount, with interest, taken from
the Dayton Branch of the Stale Bank, for
taxes by Clark as Treasurer, under the
Crowbar Law. The suit was against
Clark a an individual trespasser, and
not as Treasurer of the County.
The Supreme Court of lhe United
S ates, as lhe reader will remember, has
decided the section in the Constitution of
Ohio, under authority of which the Leg
islature j ased the laws taxing the Siate
Bank, as inconsNtant with the Constitu
tion of the United States, which forbids
the passu ge of any' law by the States ini
P'ring the obligation of contracts, the
rate of taxation for the Stale Bank hay
ing been fixed by ils charter, which the
Stockholders accepted, made a contract
between them and the State of Ohio,
which was violated by the new Constitu
tion in the laws passed by the Legisla
ture. Dayton Journal.
Five Times Married.
A few days since an old man of sixty
one 3'ears applied at the office of the city
registrar for his fifth marriage certificate.
His intended bride is but twenty-four, it
being her first marriage. This is the
only case within the knowledge of the
present registrar of a fifth marriage.
Last year one man applied for his fourth
marriage ceitificate, and during that
year more men were married for the
third time than females. There is, how
ever, a woman in this city of about forty
years who is now living with her sixth
husband. She was first married at the
age of thirteen, and when fourteen was
a widow. At the expiration of the third
year the was married to her third hus
band. She has had but three children.
