policy he will adopt In regard to the question of

to throw out hints and tUKKeetlont at feeltr$ of
the public pulse. The problem whether the Pope
or Vicroa Emanuu. la to be sovereign at Home
it aurrounded with difficulties, of whleh no tat
isfaotory solution bat yet appeared.
Tbo invasion of Turkey by Russia It thought
to be an event that must shortly transpire.
Since tbe time of Peter the Great, Russia has
never relinquished the Idea of tbe occupation
of Turkey. The Csar baa recently signified
hit approval of, the- continued 'Qouupatlon of
Syria by French troopa, Tbe opinion prevails
among foreign politicians tbat an agreement
has been entered Into by France and Russia, by
which Egypt and Syria are to be yielded to
France, while Turkey Is to come into, the pos
session of Russia. - ..
' Sinee the opening of the present parliamentary
session, tbe British Ministry have sustained two
defeats one on the Income Tax, and the other
on tbe Naval Expenditure. " In both caaet,
a Committee of Investigation waa appointed
Beside, the elections, 1 within the last eight
mouths, have given strength to tlie anti-Minis
terial party. Tbe Irish Catholics, remembering
(hat Lord John RoisiLL, In 1850, denounced tbe
ceremonials of their Church at the "njummer-
.ies of superstition," cannot forgive the Govern
mcnt for countenancing tbe revolution in Italy
by which the Pope hat been deprived of large
portion of hit dominions, and his temporal sov
ereignty itself endangered. A few more de
feats In the Bouse of Commons will probably
teal the fate of the Palmirston Cabinet, and
cause its reeignation or reconitruotion.
ETTbe Secretaryof the Treasury of the Con
federate States hat issued proposals for a loan
of five millions dollars, bearing eight per cent.
Interest. The stocks can be taken in sums va
ryiog from fifty to one thousand dollars. .The
t ix of one-eighth of a cent on every pound of
cotton exported Is pledged for the payment of
the Interest on the loan. Tblt tax, it is confident
ly anticipated, will not only suffice to pay tbe in
terest, bnt to constitute a sinking fund sufficient In
a few years to pay the principal. Tbe coupons,
when doe, are made receivable id payment ot
the duty on cotton, and arc thus made to an
swer tbe tame purposes at coin everywhere in
the Confederate Sfatee. -
WEDNESDAY, March 27.
. The discussion of Mr. Schleich't amend
ment was resumed Mr. MoCall't motion for a
division of -the question pending.
Mr. McCALL said, tbat after hearing tbe dit
ctnslon be had concluded to withdraw bis mo
tion. Be had thought the appropriation un
necessary, but had changed bia opinion.' He
had supposed the Republicans snore peaceful
than they prove, but on the floor they seem to
be imbued with a more warlike spirit than the
other side ot the Iiouse. The gentleman from
Crawford had compared Mr. Lincoln with Mr.
Buchanan, and bad intimated - that the former
exhibits the same nerve that the latter did. . Jf
this it fact, be could not admire it. s lie was
in favor of the maintenance of the property ahd
laws of tbe Government, - - '
. The motion waa withdrawn on leave.
Mr. JONES offered tbe following substitute
for tbe lines In tbe bill making tbe appropria
tion, vis: rn .' r;vr v:-"
"For tbe purchase of fixed ammunition for
small arms, and for rifling cannon, and tbe pnr-
rha nfnhot. shell, nana and canister shot.
three thousand dollars, to be expended nnder tbe
direction of tbe Governor, and paid on bia cer
tificate." .. .
Mr. SCIII.EICEI said, when he made his mo
tlon, be had ne idea that the debate would take
such a wide range; but be now proposed to dis
cuss the question, not in a 1 partizan view, be
cause be did not believe any of ns are able clear'
ly. to define oar partizan status. But as a citi
zen of tbe United States, which are embroiled
in controversy upon constitutional questions, he
wonld address himself to tne subject.
If he clearly understood tbe constitutional
and ircumstantial argument of tbe Senator
from Brown, be agreed witit mm, but fee assent'
ed to tbe truth of the argument of the Senator
from Trumbull, that the Senate has the power to
make the appropriation asked for. So far as the
charges of the latter affects the Democratic par'
tv, be knew they were unjust. Bnt 10 far. ns
this question effects our relations wltk seceded

185f eoetaln a renort en tbe subject ot tbe Vred

which illustrates and proves inisensrge. in
that renori. this decision of your Supreme Court

This is tbe literature of the Republican par
ty, pat forth as solemn legislative action. There
Is, therefore, tome ground for asserting tbat the
Republican aarty u ia favor 01 resisting legal
antbotity. The cardinal principle ot tola de
cieion, to be resisted, was tbe utterance of
prinoiple recognized year j before. The eon-rl
mlttec complained that tbe doctrine of Ibe ma
jority of the Court declared slaves to be proper
ty, like other property, and Abie they proposed
to resist. The first announcement oObie doc-
trine was io 1833 by Chief JastteeTarker, In

Mr. SCHLEICH If the gentleman ia satisfied
that the adoption or the Border Statet or Peace
Hnnrnrenee cdrnDromlsa would preserve the
Union, would he give, np the peculiar doctrine
aF Ma nartvt : ' " a ' ". ' '
Mr. GARFIELD If so small a matter could
preserve the Union, It is hardly worm me pre
servation. Be had on the first day of tbe ses
sion declared himself in favor of conciliation,
and he would do ail that was just to preserve
the Union. Be bad aloce taken that position, and
he saw no reason to retreat from It. But tbe
cemtleman attribute Hbe crisis to tbe discussion
nf the abstract moralltv of slavery. This It t
terrible admission aealntt tbe character Of
slavery. If It Is to vulnerable that the dtscut-
inn of its abstract morality Is mischievous,
how ntterlvlndefensibleit Is. ' But the Senator
has reallv touched the truth. Be (Mr. U 1 be
lieved tbat it wat because he bad diBOUssed the
abstract mertlity of the question that the South
is disturbed. But the Republicad literature re
fearred to bv the Senator from Fairfield, In tbe
Journals of 1857, recites that tbe detestation of
the committee who made tbe report, was against
a decision which seeks to force upon Ohio tbo
Institution ' of slavery. " They believed tbe
doctrine of the Dred Scott decision would force
slavery on Ohio, and therefore tbey declared
resistance to that decision. If the Senator from
F.irlleld held taoh an epinfo noon that deel
lion, would not he denounce Itl Or would be
like Valltndiehaae, announce himself now ' and
fnunr hareafter a Beo slavery man.' '
The Senator also cites Judge Story In support of
hit Indictment, end yet sit determined hostility
to slavery is notorious The decision cited by
the Senator hat no effector application whatev
er to tbe argument.' ' And here, said
Mr. G.. be was reminded, while discussing Re
publican literature, ' that about six weeks ago
tbe bill to repeal tne rersonai kioeriy taw was
referred to tbe Judiciary committee, and tbey
hive not seen fit to report it back.
Mr. SCHLEICH said the committee had not
teen It- - ; ' "
Mr GARFIELD did not intend to charge tbe
committee with neglect of duty, because every
Senator know how faithful tbey are in dis
charge of business, bnt he thought the omission
to report a utile tignincsni.
But gentlemen have seen fit to arraign Mr.
Lincoln for omission or neglect of doty. They
forget that the Democratic Administration left
him powerless -without money end without
troons.so that he Is now reduced to the humili
ating and despicable "military necessity" of
evacuating Fort Sumter an act which he (Mr
G.1 despised as much at any mm can.
Mr. Garfield, In conclusion, said thaljcvery time
this winter thai any proposition has been made
to BtreDEtben the arm at the Government, eve
ry thing looking like an energetic course, in re
lation totheoondition of the country, gentle
men who profess to ignore party have beld up
their bands in deprecation of It, and for thii be
arraigned them be Tore the people.-
Mr. SCHLEICH said, the gentleman will not
ibrget that he bad advocated tbe militia bill;
and if he remembered Aright, be found It as
difficult to get tome Republican Senators to vote
for it, as be bad in getting memneri or bis own
paHy to vote for It J '"'' u-..,
- M. GARFIELD admitted tbe fact, alleging
that he merely asserted the general principle.
Mr. MOORE proposed to confine hie remarks
to the policy to be pursued, bnt he would first
bestow a Utile attention to tbe military eystem
proposed to be Introduced into Obio.
1 . ; . Mr. Moore announced that he
had voted steadily against all militia bills, and
had not misrepresented bia constituent.' It Is
sought to build np a military. system in Obio,
when there is no necessity for It. Its advocates
assume tbat it may be necessary in this crisis.
He denied that : this is the tree policy. How
ball the ship of State be extricated from dan
ger 1 It seemed sound -wisdom that peace
counsels alone should be adopted to restore har
mony The difficulties have become too great
to suppress by arms, w 111 you war witn broth

these cannon and thol are wanted I If you do
conquer, what bare you got T Peace and loveT
No ! What ia this Union worth without them?
If we cannot, without war, preserve this Union,
we should separate in peace. i
, Mr. JONES Is not tbe gentleman in favor
of defending the Southern fort T If the-sece-
ders thonld attempt to drive us out at tho point
of tbe baronet, would he not resist?-.-,. ,lir
. Mr. MOORE. -replied that if a surrender
would accuse pfetable separation, he would re
commend It. Be was not in favor of applying
force in the solution of present difficulties.' lie
waa a peace man. - He would exhaust all peace
ful means, before resorting to violenoe. An at
tempt to collect revenue by force will drive out
the border States; bence he opposed the em
ployment of force in any way or In any sense
whatever. He opposed the appropriation, be
cause it looked to a policy which . be regards as
entirely wrong '-: . j
Mr. CUPPY offered the following amend
- For the purchase of "fixed ammunition" for
the nee of Senators upon this floor, tbe sum of
fifteen cent.
Tbe Cbalranoeptcd it as rhetorical, not a be
ing of the substance of tbe subject matter. '
- Mr1. PARISH wonld not participate inwtbls
discussion at. all, but for misrepresentations
Which had been so prominent tbat he could not
overlook them; -Charges had been bronght
against Abolitionists and snti-lavery men. He
took pride In declaring himself a member 101
that class, and. therefore,, he wanted to reply.
Fret, tbe Garrison party and tbe Gerritt Smith
artyjrertco operating with tbe Democratic and
against ths Republican party. Then tbey were
charged at disunlonists, solely because tbey
opposed tbe fugitive slave law new, tne truth
aa. thev 0 noosed that law because or their rea
eration for tbe Constitution, wbiob they believe
is contravened. Bat. bad as that law was, un
constitutional a it was, they would yield falio be
dience to it Just sa-farse they could, without
oewi milling an immoral act, themselves!' But
before personally committing an immoral act
by obeying tbe law, he would inbmil to any
pooUbment. Tbe Senator from falr&eld bad
held tbo anti-alarerj men responsible for tbe
present situation of tbe tountry, because of thelt
aisonssions of the moral aspect of the sis very
question. He did not se regard it. - If men da
right; and F'cked men get mad about it, who
fault ie ill There is a standard of right, and
those 1 who ocewny : that are sot responsible) for
the fault of others.: He bsd a full right to dis
toss Abo morel aspects of slavery.. Hut 'tbe
slavery discussion had lasted many years.- The
fear in ths South sras that tbe views of tbe
anti-slavery men would gel hold of tbe eotv-
oieoces ef weak 1 vboluVrt , and lead to tt ah
olltioo of slavery; 1 But bow came thii excite
ment to arise jnst after a Presidential election,
if due to tbe discussion of anti-slavery menl
Did it not show that tbe mortification of defeat
had something to do with ill a r ;n . v -Al
to the divlaioos of churches, which had
beea charged upon anti-tlsvery men, the Metb
odiste South were not latUfied with being , fel-;
lowsbipped by brethren North,, but tbey de
manded eboroa Indorsement ot alavery, which '
the Methodist North would dot grant. Hence
the eeparation-'ia of the Baptist and other
churcbrsv One party had controflet the
offites and emolumentsioi the governmentnow,
henausa Lincoln wan elected and tbeV bad lost I
thee berth, they were seceding. ' :
Mr. SCHLEICH confessed these remarks
grated harshly on bit eart. His relation were
mostly "southerners, and ne naa aiways iouju
tbcra ot villted and christianized. ' .
Mr. PARISH certalnlv agreed with his irlcnd
from Falrflold on tbil point. Be bad high re
spect for many Southern Christiana, but none
at all lor those JNortnerns-wno -went uowu
there, married rbh widows, and became furloui
slaveholdorj..' He would not even want to have
the same heaven with such neonle. Publio opin
Ion would by and by correct tbe Dred Scott de
cision, as it has already done others. ThsPrigg
ease deciskn would yet be revereedby tbe same
court that gave it. If this were not so, the sun
or this country would so down, ana nnerty do
come extiart. He called the attention of Demo
cratic Senatora to the faot that decisions going
to help- slavery were always inif tly And seai
ously maintained by their party. .
Mr. SCHLEICH maintained that the Demo
cratlo nartv nlanted Itself on the Constitution,
and on tbe maintenance, ot sil tne nrancnet 01
tbe Government. '
Mr. PARISH Instated that the party de
nounoed decisions of the Supreme Court on bank
taxation, but applauded such decisions at mat
in tbe Dred Soott ease. Senator! had In
duleod tn Republican literatures he would treat
them to a little of tbe Democratic iiamp. , ne
OJmmenced readins: oertatn resolutions, when
Mr. SCHLEICH explained that it had never
been adopted, at anted, by a Democratic leg
islaturO. "
Mr. PARISHwould nevertheless read It, tt It
wat tbe production of good Democrats, at any
rate. Tbe speaker here read several extracts
from a renort on States' Rights, bv Ralph Lcets,
as specimens' of Democratio literature, on this
sublect of obey Inr the decisions of court.
' Nominee for nlaees on the SuDreme Bench
had been rejected because not "right on the
goose" a to the law of 1793. Chancellor Wal
worth, of New York, wat of the number. Be
favored what wa rich! lu these decisions,
whether about bank or slavery, whether with
tbe Demoorat or against them.
The ameudmentof Mr. JONES wa substi

by Mr. soblelch to strike out, waa lost yeas

Mr. JONES replied tbat it was designed to

make a requisition upon the Governor of Ohio
for assistance In maintaining the Government.
Mr. SCHLEICH bad nothing to say, except
that the Conduct- of Senators la this matter it
rather strange. It appeared to him that this look

Mr. STANLEY said the money is to remain

Mr. HERRICK opposed the renort, and ai-
gued tbat tbe Agricultural Interest wat ot a
character that did not need protect ion or en
couragement. The bill, bowerer, doee not pro
pose to withdraw ell encouragement from tbe
county agricultural societlet, but to to reduoe
the amount or money so appuea, aooui tnree-
fourths. ' Betides, these are inuipensaoiesoois

doing much service In promoting the prosperity
of agriculture, that received no money from

Mr. STIER3 opposed the bill, at likely to
break up the whole eystem of agricultural so
cieties He regarded these new Yeung Amer
ican aooietiee as everywhere coming Into
competition with tbe county ocitles, thn
me main stay ot agricultural Improvement.
Mr. BILLS thought tbat, as agrloulture 1
the great and controlling Interest of the coun
try, mat tne idea or protection Is Inverted wben
it is applied to It, rather than the weaker Inter-
eats of other pursuits and trades. He thought,
too the natural tendenoy of wealth to aggregate
itself into monopolies is now mainly lo the ag
ricultural interests.
Mr. McCLUNG defended the report, and il
lustrated the manner In which tbe whole country
la benefitted by the little machinery in use to
promote that Interest. But the House had just
appropriated a sum out ot the uouuty Agricultu
ral Fund for an agent to the World's Fair; and
it would not now be proper to Id.ien that fond.
