A pair oJ ooal boats, belonging W'Co- rey reietront George, Humberson, pilot, enooo'atered the storm, about eleven o clocH tow Liveroool. Ohio, and in at tempVmg to check up struck the bank. J V uen several' hands jumped ashore. One oi tne boats eunk, but the other was saved, - although somewhat damaged. mr. James iorey was on board, and was severely braised in the face by the part ing ot an inch and three-quarter line air. iiumoerson, tne pilot, recovered a a skiff which had been taken ashore for VT . .1 . a the purpose of fastening a line, but the men who had jumped ashore were no where to be seen. One pair, .belonging to John Penny, of ol Keesoort,- Daniel Pollard, pilot, was sunk near Line Island, and' four men drowned. Their names are: Robert Munkittrick, William Say, and George Pilgrim, from (he vicinity of M Keesport, and George Pinkering, who resided near Sawmill run. The men, we are informed left the boat in a skiff,' which was swept by thewell in the river under the steam er Jacob Poe, lying a chute at the bead of the Inland. Doe man who Was in tne skiff, succeeded in reaching the shore. A pair of boats, belonging to Riley Rupert, were reported sunk at Millareek, and five men lost. We did not learn their names. John M'Qnilkin, pilot, was on board, intending to take charge of the boats from Louisville. 1 M. Dravo & Sons, lost a pair of boats, in the same neighborhood. 1 George Hun ter, pilot. No men lost." Two coal barges Van Reed pilot of one, and the other owned by Snutley & Co. were also reported sunk. 1 A telegraphic dispatch, from Wellsville, was received by the press on Thursday afternoon, stating that a pair of coal boats, belonging to Peterson & Corey, were sunk near that place, and twelve men drowned. Further that seven of the crew escaped, who reported that the boats were in a sinking condition when last seen. James Corey, Wm. tlumberson, Thomas Brown, Thomas Fagan, Jacob Mangus, John Baker, the cook, and two others, were supposed to be lost. This dispatch is discredited, from the fact that James Corey is in the city, and has ho knowledge of the drowning of any of the hands. He says he left Huiriberson at Stenbenville all right." We learn from Mr. Blasdell, one of the bands on the boats, that when in the midst of the storm, between Wellsville and Liverpool, all hope of landing the boats was given over.several lines parted iu attempting to do so. Nine of the hands jumped into the skiff, and succeeded in making the snore, Mr. Humberson, the pilot, accompanying then. Mr. II. and one of the hands, staited again for the boats in a skiff, leaving seven men on the shore. Mr. Blasdell says he seen noth ing more of the boats or the men on board. Those on shore were instructed to walk along the bank, which they did, and see ing the lights disappear, inferred that the boats had sunk, drowning the men on board, twelve iu number. 'J he dispatch alluJed to was doubtless based on the statement of the seven men who were landed in the skiff, and who were led to believe that those remaining on the boats were lost, from the fact of their not seeing or hearing of them af.er wards. We are led to believe that the report of the drowning of Mr. Humberson and others named in the dispatch is un true. . The boats encountered thes'.orm about seven o'clock, and it conlinued with fear ful violenee until about eleven. The cries of the boatmen were heard by per sons in Liverpool, Wellsville, and at dif ferent points along ihe river. - The storm is said to have been the most terific one which ha3 prevailed on the Ohio lor s numbet of years. Pitt.Dis. Newspapers. The Faribault Herald, in the course of an able article on the subject of newspa? pers and their influence upon the towns in which they are published, says : "The announcement that a newspaper is published in a town, at once gives ti a reputation of importance. A newspaper adds to the value of town property in a town where it is published. This is a fact not generally appreciated, but a fact, nevertheless ; and hence every property holder in a place is personal'y interested in sustaining a paper; no money that ha expeuds during the year returns him such a per cent., as that which he pays for his home paper." There are a number of rich property holders in this place, who are not sub scribers, for either of. the papers publish ed here, but who read them regularly every week, but get them by begging or borrowing from their poorer neighbors, to whom we commend the above para graph. They are the very ones, too, who would regret to see our papers dis continued, whether they like them or not, for they are satisfied they are an advan tage to the place and to them, but their narrowness of soul prevent them from paying a few shillings a year to sustain them.

J'ffersonian con tains an account of an elopement case occurring In that vicinity some tune since, when a nun named bilas May absconded with a Mrs. McK.ee, a married woman. The finale of the case is as fol lows: ,''.- -': On Saturday last,' May ' returned to ibis county, with a view of running off his negroes, it was thought; and when his presence was known, it created an unusual degree of feeling in the neigh borhood, of which be was once a promi nent and conspicuous member. Ihe people assembled in large "numbers in that vicinity, and organized a meeting to i i mi . 3 take a sense oi tne people, i ney pasaea a resolution that May should be notified to leave the neighborhood,' and that he J .'. .lT. . C l. musi uo ii in mirxy minuies micr u if ceived the notice. The neighbors, then started to scour the neighborhood, and find May. Most of them were unlucky in getting upon his track, but Mr. F. M. Bell, an energetio and persevering young man, in company with man by the name of Barnes, finally struck' his trail about" two miles from May's house, and chased him from ten o'clock in the evening until three o'clock in the morning. After a search of four hours most' of the company gave up the hunt, but Bell and Barnes stuck to their work. Finally these two energetic men came in sight of May, who was wt mounted on a fine, active young horse. But so wore his pursuers, who gave chase nnderwliip and spur, over a hard road and after mile or two close running, the pursuers finding the bottom and speed of i at it tne three nurses aoout equal ana aemon fllrating that they could not get any near er to Ihe well mounted May, they hailed him three tunes to stop and surrender, which he refused to do. ' ' ' ' '. Bell and Barnes then opened a fire up on May with Colt's revolvers, firing above bun, which May returned gallantly. Finding that he showed fight, Bull and Thrnes lowered their shots, and two balls having passed through May's hat, he bawled out at the top of his voice that he would surrender, which he did. His horse was soon taken possession of by the Marshal, who will sell it Under the execution which he has ilevied upon his fine estate and personal property, in favor of McK.ee. An outraged community gave the des troyer of domestic happiness his life, and turned him loose upon the cold world, packing off his saddle, as the last vestige of a fine fortune that has now passed from his possession forever. Freedom's Champions. The National Era, of Washington city recently gave a brief sketch of the history of those political men who had bravely stepped forth with the almost forlorn hope, in the struggle between freedom and slavery in this country. It surprised us to find in how many instan ces, even already, the most substantial rewards of popular approval Lad been achieved by northern men, most of them of comparatively little fame, hitherto, whose sense of duty hud led them to sever old party associations rather than be coun ted with the doughfaced allies of slavery. Banks, Summer, Wilson, Burlingame, Hale, Hamlin, Seward, Chase, Lovejoy, the gallant veteran Giddings, (he three brothers Washburne, and a host of others, bf.ve been thus borne up in the arms of freedom to the high places in their own states, or in the national councils, while those who studded policy, and bowed to the behests of party and slavery, have gone down to obscurity as the former rose to preferment. The lesson should not be forgotten by the people generally, nor, above all, by those who seek political honor and success. The man who has not sufficient dis cernment to see that doughfaceism and pro-slaveryism are ''dead dogs" in the free states, is too blind to be called a pol itician. He trusts in nothing beyond present success, and when his party is defeated, he is undone. The mn whose chief concern is to be right to have con science and truth as his counsellorsis hut for a moment cast down in defeat, and rises up to a stronger confidence of ultimate triumph. The people are never long deceived as to the real value of those who seek to be their public servants. Soon or late, fear less and trne hearted men like Hale, Chase, Giddings, Seward, Banks, and others of that class, are put forward as the standard bearers in the people's battle, and the rewards of victory are immeasu rably enhanced by the consciousness which such men have that they have not licked spittle nor crawled in the dust to win the favor of slavedom.

The Press says jl should not be sur prised if, "at the end of another year, the re-opening oi the slave trade, under the joint auspices ol Messrs. ioombs and Green and blidell, is made the new test of Democracy." Sometime during the ast8ummer in an article called out by an editorial in the Washington Union, we expressed the conviction that belore the year 1800 the re opening of the slave trade will be made a test ot Democracy It is an inevitable sequence to the Urod Scott decision, which opens, constitution ally, not only all the territories but the States to (be introduction of slaves. ' .The necessity for re opening it yyll be found in the laws of trade regulating supply and demand. Ihe slave breeding states will bo unable to furnish the requisite ' slave muscle and brawn, and the planters must look abroad for it. Within two years the African slave tradd will not only be re opened, but the Democracy will be called upon to lend it their politico,! sanction and "Therb Shk Blows!"

' II (Preferred to the right of the people to govern themselves as a grbat principle and, applicable to the present circumstance.' The President he said, has recommended with unusual earnest ness, the admission of Kansas under, the Lecompton Constitution. It was a ques tion in his mind only of facts, whether the Lecompton Constitution comes with such authority and sanction as to oblige us to recognize it as the constitution' of Kansas; ; He' thought it did not.' The evidence of Gov. Walker and Mr. Stanton show that it is against the will of an over whelnjing majority of the people.. ; Mr. Crittenden recapitulated the state ments of various frauds at the elections, and then examined' the legality of the Lecomptou Constitution, declaring that it was not the constitution of the people of Kansas, but Only of 1 the Convention which framed it. Tho vote of ten thous and on the 4th of January, shows that it was not the Constitution of the people. They tell you that it i's particularly obnox ious to them, because tainted with fraud; it is one of a series of frauds instigated for the purpose of getting and keeping poisession of the goverment of Kansas, from the first election carried by armed invaders from Missouri, down to the present day. Hence, , he concluded that to impose it on Kansas would be a plain and palpable violation of the rights of the people to govern themselves ; but ; con tinued Mr. Criteiiden, Lecompton carries on its face evidence of corruption. Those who framed it knew it contained provis ions that the Free State men could . not assent to; therefore none were allowed to vote, unless iwom to support its slavery provisions ; 'anJ all the six thousand votes shown in favor of it were put in with the view of exhibiting a suitable majority, and in order not to make the fraud too monstrous. They went just beyond the line, the fraudulent intent was apparent throughout; and how he asked, can gentlemen ignore these frauds in the face of interual evidenco and concurrent testimony. The people of Kansas say that it is not their constitution, and they ask us to send it back to them to be submitted to the vote of the people. Can we, he asked, refuse such request? Can the Senators turn from such evidence to legal technicalities and presumptions of laws. Tbey ought to look to truth and principle without looking to presumptions and precedents. Holding the principles he did he could not put his hand to the admission of Kansas under the Lecompton VJonsutulion. Mr. (Jntteitden then asked what can the truth gain by the admission of Kansas under that Constitution. No Senator believes tnat 6he can be a slave state. The laws of climate and geogra phy forbid it. In support of this view he quoted the sentiments of several members af Congress, including Mr. Keitt. Mr. Hammond Did Mr. Keitt say so ? Mr. Crittenden It was so reported. Hammond Mr.Keitt quoted a passage to that etlect, but did not endorse it. Mr. Crittenden resumed, contending that a majority of the people of Kansas hould be allowed to make such a constitution as they please ; that, he said, is the great American principle ; that is the principle of the south itself. He was according to the terms now used, a southern democrat ; he had lived all his ife in a southern climate, and was ready to defend his rights there, but the same resolute spirit in which he would defend us own rights be would defend the rights of others. He repeated that he did not believe that Kansas could be a slave state. The south was deceived in that respect. ltefernng to the Missouri Compromise, he said it would have been belter to let it stand. The south could gain nothing by it, nor the north, but it was hallowed as a bond of Uaion. House' Mr. Quitman appealed to the House to take Up the Army Bill and debate upon it until it was disposed of, which he supposed would be to-morrow. Mr. Pendleton: advocated an increase in the regular army, stating its necessity if wo expect Ihe Executive to perform emciently the duties invested in him by the Constitution. Mr. Pendleton spoke forcibly of the necessity of defending our extensive possessions against, the Indians; some of whom are enlisted to war by the Mormons who are themselves in rebellion. Inci dental to the present necessity, Mr. Pendleton referred to the future, when these possessions, will be largely extend ed by the acquisition ol Cuba, Central America, Mexico,, lie. He thought it was the duty of the government to demand peremptorily from Spain indemnity for the past, and security lor the future, and lor lailure to give it. to take Cuba. The othor countries alluded to would all come in good time. ; Mr. Humphrey!. Marshall replied to to Messrs. Faulkner and Pendleton, complimenting the regular army for its bravery, and chivalry, and sense ol honor, but favoring the employment of volunteers in th present emergency as the most ready and efficient force. Mr. Bingham was opposed both to the majority bill for volunteers, and Mr. Faulkner's substitute , for additional regu lars as at present advised, and would vote against tie proponed. increase either of volunteers or regulars, for he did not believe that the condition of affairs in Utah, Texas, or any where else required it. The Mormons .were . told by the Democratic party that they might regu late their domestic institutions in their own way, and they established polygamy He wanted Congress to start in the right direction ; , let tbem hrst pass a law prohibiting polygamy in the future, , and let all peaceful remedies he first exhausted before resorting to the arbitrament and vi olent measures of the i word., , II these fail then resort to the conflict of arms. He thought that under the present circum stanoes, the house would be more within its line of duty in preferring articles of impeachment against the President for high crimes and misdemeanors, than voting for five regiments to put under his control during the recess of Congress. Mr. Giddings said a few words in de fence of the Indians, who, he contended would not injure the whites, if the whites did not molest them. - The IJouse adjourned. - ' MarcV I8f &war: (Owing to the fact that the wires were blown down Wednesday evening the conclusion of Mr. Crittenden's speech was not received. The press uponour columns renders a brief abstract of it, and other proceedings necessary.) . .... , Mr. Crittenden maintained that the re peal of the Missouri Compromise hailed on its conpumnation as a bond of union has brought nothing but trouble to the country, and the reverse of peace. Turning to Kansas, he said he would vote for her admission under the Lecomp ton faud if it yrould lead tq peace or lo calize the question of slavery. '..He did not belieye it would, Ho advocated cool ness and. courtesy in debate. Were this discord but lulled, what a summer sea 'lies before us of boundless prosperity. In conclusion, he said he should vote on the question as a Senator of the United States,1 and not as a sectional man. He owed allegiance to no ' section. The course would approve, would be to poss a law bv which the constitution shall be submitted to a fair, untrammelled vote of the people, and if it be ratified, he would then admit Kansas into the Union. .', Mr- 'Trumbull,' of 111., complimented Mr. C.'s speech and slated his objections to Lecompton. J He predicted that the admission i'of Kansas 'under it would lead to civil war and federal dissolution. He held the Kansas Nebraska act responsi ble for present troubles. He reviewed the Dred Scott decision, and denied the doctrine that the Constitution of the Uni ted States extends slavery into territories, contending that the constiutipn does not itself operate over territories excepting by an act of ' Congress. He thought it the power and duty of Congress to prevent the recognition of slavery in the territories. The Senate adjourned, pending the dis mission. In senate this morning a communica tion was presented from the Secretary of War, stating that Kock Island w.as no longer required for military, purposes, and urging the propriety of taking steps for the sale of the property belonging to the government. Mr. Wilson, of Mass., urged that an evening session beheld, which was agreed to. Mr. Gwin, of California, presented a resolution of inquiry as to what steps bad been taken lo punish the perpetrators of the massacre of one hundred and eighteen emigrants in Utah. He said an expedi tion from the Pacific coast against Utah would pass over a scene of massacre, and he thought every wigwam within a hun dred miles should be searched. He had heard of massacres directly charged on the Mormons, but he wouldn t believe it without proof. He contended that im mediate action was necessary, otherwise the Indians wouldn't leave any emigrant routes unmolested. Mr. Houston was opposed to indis criminate warfare on Indians, and was perfectly willing to vote if offenders could be identified, but objected to proceedings without inquiry, and Ihns provoke war in retaliation. ' . . Mr. Gwin asked only that the murder ers be punished. ' 1 ' The Kansas discussion was resumed by Mr. Toombs, who said, he agreed with Mr. Critienden. 1 his was not a section al question; it involved the rights of fif teen States, and principles worth more to tbe others than the union of these States. He believed the anti-Slavery Shibboleth, that there shall be no more slave States, the secret of opposition in the Senate to the Lecompton Constitution. He enter ed into a long discussion of its constitu tionality as a priciple, taking in a general view of the slavery question. Abolition- ibis since me aumission oi an siave oiates; then they sowed to the wind; they were responsible for the whirlwind. He advo cated ihe admission of Kansas under the Lecompton Constitution its legality, find the duty of Congress to pass it. The alleged frauds depended on the testimony of Walker and Stanton, and there'' was nothing in their characters elevating them beyond the credibility of ordinary citizens. Air. Crittenden thought he had done his duty in resisting the admission of Kansas under the Lecompton Constitu tion. The couth could gam nothing in forcing its passage. He was old enough not to take the part of a paftizan but a patriot. ' i ' Mr. bell alluded to Mr. I oombs Ian- guage that he "had weighed the value of the Union." There is time enough said Mr. Bell, to estimate the value of the Union, when the powerful North takes a deliberate stop; when, for instance, sho refused to admit a territory in which sla very exists, unless it should first liberate slaves.. He must see such an issue actu ally made before he considered it, but ho believed it ould never come, if the South were prudent. He, like the Sen-, ator from Kentucky, would . not take a sectional view of the question. . Washington, March 18.

He denied that the parties in Kansas were seotional. 'The free State party contained many from , the. South, while .the pio slavery party, he was ashamed to confess, numbered many adherents from the" North the great border ruffian leader Calhoun, himself being from Massachusetts. Yes, the very worst class of border ruffians in Kansas were from the free States. He waB sorry truth and justice required the admission but it was no new thing; slavery had always done her dirtier work through Northern men. Of the members of the, Free State Leg' islature of Kansas, four !were from 'Vir ginia alone, while only five' were from all the New England Stales. This, and similar facts, he contended, furnished sufficient answer lo the assertions con cerning Northern Abolifjqn" emigration to Kansas. . . , .. Mr. Bayard, of Del.,from the committee on Foreign Affairs submitted a report and resolutions relative to matteis between the United States and China, which were laid on the table. . ' . ' ' Mr. Simonp, of R, 'I., followed. 1 Mr. Foote. He argued against Lecompton. Mr. Wright, of N. J., followed. . lie ferring to , the policy of ' udmltting new States he said each State in the union has to beat the burden of its own support, and why pot Territories when they have the abilitv. He lho't that when Territo ries applied for admission Congress should grant their petition, and then coerce mem into the union . by all the fair appliances known Vo the constitution.'. The admis sion of new States was a relief to the general government in a pecuniary sense, bul theie were higher reasons :' the ad dition of each State added strength and stability to the union, riviting more firmly the bond that makes ns one people, and giving us increased respect abroad. The general policy, therefore, being in favor of the admission of Kansas, what . valid objection can be nrged against it. He then examined various objections advan ced, replying to each and concluding by expressing his own opinion (hat the spe diest way to settle the difficulty wonld be its admission under the Lecompton Constitution which, if the people' do not like, it can be changed. Recess till seven o'clock.' ' Seven o'clock, p. m. Five Senators were present. " 1 Mr. Toombs, of Ga., made some fac tious remarks touching the vacant seats, Mr. Brown, of Miss.) complained that in bis former speech Mr. Wilson had done him injustice and attributed to him disunion sentiments.. He pointed out mistakes, adding that he loved the union, but loved the rights of his State more, and there might be contingencies when be should advocate a dissolution. Mr. Wilson explained. Mr. Brown hoped that .'the Senate would adjourn. There were several who desired to speak, namely : Messrs, Wil- Dixon, Bayard, Uouglas, Stuart and Green, and be might himself have some thing to say, but he did not wish to stay listening to speeches when less than a dozen Senators were present. He hoped that they would adjourn to Monday, He had made no bargain that tbe vote should be taken on Monday. The motion was hot carried. ... . , ; House 'Tbe House went into Com mittee of the Whole on the Deficiency Bill. . - Mr. Farnsworth, of III., argued against the Lecompton Constitution, and against the doctrine of ihe no fangled Democracy. That Constitution carries slavery into the Territories, and Congress has no right to prohibit Us extension thither. , , : Mr. t arnaworth concluded by, saying, that so help him God, another slave State shall never enter the Union by his vote. . Mr. Maynard, of aenn., said that no sufficient reason had been shown against the admission of Kansas under the Le compton Constitution.,' He had been told by reliable authority that Kansas contain ed 100,000 people; her Constitution is republican. . .Why is her admission op posed T Mainly because her Constitution recognizes slavery. .The discussion, he contended, would not hasten the settle ment of this question.. The true issue had been defined by Mr. Farnsworth, that no more slave Stales should be admitted into the Union. .We might as well meet lhat issue af once like men of nerve; ' jet the final vote be taken and Kansas reject ed. : The intelligence will go over the wires lo every corner of the North and the answer will be we have triumphed; we hiv crushed the slave power' and have it under our feet. He alluded to several features in the bill which said were in accordance With the doctrines of the American party, and met his cordial approbation. 1 Referring-' to the reoent' re moval of Commissioner Loring in Mass achusetts, he attributed it to abolition hate lhat would would surely provoke' retalia tion from the South.- 1 ' ' ': Mr. Giddings,' of Ohio, replied to a passing allusion made by Mr. Maynard to him. tie said he baa on a iormer occa sion, appealed to all governments and nations to stand up in favor of humanity, no matter how degraded; no matter what coloi. He acknowledged every man to be his brother. Alluding to the treaty of Ghent, negotiated by Mr. Clay and other patriots, he said that provision was made therein for the abolition of the slave trade. This government, however, has violated the compact, He would ask the gentle man from Tennessee,, Mr. Maynard, would stand by it. i' '" 'i'-. i Mr. Maynard said that he could not believe that those patriots while "negotia ting with' Great Britain could invoke ajd in' putting down slavery in this country. He held it lo be a calumny On' their mem ory; they never could have done lt.'"1 '.' Mr. Giddings replied v'tbat this' pledge of Mr. Clay and his associates was on behalf of the United Slates; and not Eng land. ... ,, i Mr; Maynard asked if 'sjavery' was UJ. :'.:'?-t To .'. it'iii J.-V.t. i intended, , why was it not stated in the treity. Mr. Giddings answered because our govervment has no power to suppress1 slavery in Tennessee, or any other slave State, but has power t suppress slave trade t .Mr Barksdale, of Miss., sanTthat tho emigrant ajd' societies sent rnen to Kan sas to defyithe powjer of the general gar ernment abd the territorial -legislature, iwufnuug. w general government to senq an army there to protect peaceful voters. He agreed in favor of Lecomp ton,' contending that it was the act of ihs people oi inansas, under which, being Republican in form, they bail a right to be admitted.'! He wtfuld ask thai Repub lican sidtf whether they -would vote for the admission of Kansas if one hundred thousand desired admission with slavery T Mr. Giddings raid that he would never consent that Ohio shall associate with another slave Stale. , r r i -Mr. Carksdale wanted to know Whether Mr. Giddings jpoke for tbe whole Repub lican party. Mr. Giddings answered that he spoke for the independent, reflective portion of mankind generally. Mr. Barksdale The Black Republican portion you mean. He then asked Mr. Bingham, 'of Ohio, whether1 "hiwould vole for the' admission of another slave slate?.,, ..... .,.,...vt;.;1t, ,.,,,.vv, ... Mr. Bingham Certainly not; by no means. ''.''" ' ' " ' Mr. : Barksdale The opposition tp Lecompton then,- is based on the ground, that it tolerates slavery. Mr. Stanton of Ohio, thought (hatha might safely say thai' the Republicans, would never vote for a slave elate north, of 36, 30. ,i .-.', Mr. Barksdale Will they yote for, slave states south of that fine ? Mr. Stantod believed that some would. Mr. Barksdale said,' if no, more Slava States were to be admitted, Ihe South ought to know it. She has been ponstantly yielding in point pf territory, and has suffered from Northern aggression. Mr. Colfax, of Ind., in respqose to Mr. Barksdale said, that he would not vote for the admission of Kansas if the whole people came here with a slave constitution, He had made that declaration when the Missouri Compromise' was repealed, bat he placed his objections on even graver grounds. He reviewed; the Lecompton Constitution and besides the objections previously argued, contended that it was contradictory in declaring that property was higher than any constitutional sanc tion, and yet giving corporations power to take privme property against the owner's will that it was inconsistent in prohibiting the" Legislature from passing bank laws unless ratified by a popular vote. Yet refusing ta submit their own still more important work to a similar test ; that it was unconstitutional in Suspending the habeas corpus in cases of insurrection, in addition to rebellions and invasions, the ' only exceptions of the federal constitution, . and provided for extra taxes' on persons following occupa tions or trades, which he denounced as unrepublican and intended as a discrimi nation against free labor. He read the Utah and Kansas laws to show that Utah has precisely Ihe same authority lo come into the Union with or without slavery, and her legislature is clothed with the same power of rightful legislation ' aa Kansas, and that the Lecompton argument if correct, would, authorize ' the State constitution in Utah and the consequent overthrow of territorial authority, which is being maintained at such an enormous expense. He closed by ' declaring that peace could not be obtained by forcing a hated constitution, by a military power, on a protesting people, but was easily secured by releasing Kansas from the grasp' of her dictators, . and asking her people the plain honest question: "Do you desire a constitution lo ratify Lecomp lon ., ... ,,; . . .. .-. -, v - Mr. Adram, of N.

The Democratic party was the party of truth , and principles but the Lecompton movement was a gross depar ture : from them, i The constitution had not been submitted to 3 direct yote of the people and he would vote; against it.. : Godey's tLady'a, Boojc for April has been on our table for .'several days..
