It explains whatever there might have been of obscu rity or uncertainty in the Dred Scott dic tum, and sheds a flood of light upon the tendencies and purposes of that judicial outrage. tT he Ohio State Journal, which by the way, is now one of our best exchanges, thus comments opon tho new 'Democra tic Test": "The new southern claim of Congres sional inlerrention in behalf of slavery in the Territories threatens to interfere seii- iiously with the success of the overtures now being made for re-uniling the Demo cratic party. The Washington Union cordially accedes to the demand, and for mally accepts it, as a new issue. On tho other hand Mr. Douglas and Forney's Press, without committing themselves manifest a strong anxiety to postpone the question until after the next Presidential election. The Chicago Press and Tri bune says that it was given out by the friends of Mr. Douglas, in advance of his speech on Wednesday last, that he would define his position on this new issue ; thnt he would take ground against it, planting himself upon the doctrine that the Terri torial Legislatures are supreme, and that Congress has not the power under the Constitution to enact a slave code for the Territories. But to the disappointment of all, his speech avoided a direct refer ence to this subject. The Philadelphia Press, in its issue ot the 17th inst., im plores the Southern Democracy not to force upon their Northern brethren any new test ; begs them to cease to "agitate for mere political effect" and in return promises that all agitation at the North will die out. and that complete harmony will be restored. The Press is cautious to utter no protest against the principle in volved in the new party test. The Ro chester Union, however, boldly utters its determination to resist it. Says the Union: "The time has at length arrived when we Northern Democrats must decide whether we are willing virtually to ignore or repudiate as subordinate, all other is sues, and go into the campaign upon the single, or at least, the paramount and only practical isaue, that the Federal Constitu tion, by its own proper vigor, carries Slavery and the law of Slavery into all the territories of the United States ; and that it is the s?cred duty of Congress (in default of local protection) to pass laws and to constitute tribunals and officers in the several territories, for the purpose of maintaining, protecting and upholding Slavery, and the "rights" of Slaveholders in each and all of said territories; To givi' practical effect lo these doctrines, the Federal Government must itself become a Slave Government, as fully and unqualifiedly as South Caro lina is a Slave Slate. It must have its Slave code as South Carolina has her Slave code. It must have its Slave po lice as South Carolina has her Slave po lice. It must have its Slave tribunals as South Carolina has Ijer Slave uibunals. Are we Northern Democrats ready to go to our people on the affirmative of this doctrine and these several propositions 1" The Cincinnati Enquirer also finds it a difficult matter to take the further step required of it. It ha3 managed to get over the Dred Scott dictum, but hesitates at the "logical sequence" so graphically por trayed by its Democratic cotemporary, the Rochester Union, and so strenuously urged by t'le Southern presses and politi cians generally. The Enquirer denies "that the right and duty of Congress to enact a Slave code for the protection of Slavery in the Territoties, is a logical sequence of the Dred Scctt decision." Whether the Enquirer be right or wrong . in this assertion is of very little conse mience. The fact still remains, that i Congiessional intervention is demanded ; and in relation to that demand, the North era Democracy must assume an unequivo cal position, for or against it. It cannot be denied that the theory of the Dred Scott dictum only receives a practical embodiment in the Congression al legislation asked for by the Southern Democracy. Such legislation would only crystalise A legal abstraction into a tangi ble reality. It is very natural that many of those who have weakly yielded assent to an at trocious theory, should shrink from its application. But the same weakness which tetrayed them into the commission of the primary error will paralyse their efforts to escape its consequences. The Southern body of the Democracy will probably persist in its demand ; and its Northern apendage will yield the point, as it lias always done, on similar occasions. Republicans can ask for no better Issue ' oo wbL-h lo rally the opposition to further Slavery' emroacIiinontB. It will do more Arthur's Home Magazine. The December number of the Home Magazine closes its most successful vear. While nearly every other literary periodical lost ground duiing 1858, as a natural conse quence of the depressing influence of the times, the circulation of the Home Maga- ine has increased beyond that of any pieviotis year. A lad HKe tins speans volumes in its favor, and shows that the people ore looking for a work that always blends with a pure literary taste, high moral excellence. The publishers announce for the com ing year, among other leading attractions, a new novel from the charming pen of Miss Townsend one of the Editors, enti tled 'Wait and See." Il will be com menced in January, and he continued through six or seven numbers of the Magazine. A rare treat is m store for its readers. Increased care will be given to all the departments of the Home Magazine, so as to make them as h.ghly instructive and useful as possible loall classes of readers. As heretofore, there will be a Mother's Department; a Boy's and Girls' Treasu ry; a Housekeepu's Department ; and a Fashion Department. Each will contain mallei s specially appropriate, and valua ble to mothers and housekeepers. No other periodical attempts ti meet the common want like this. It is the Home Magazine of the country. The low price of this Magazine brings it within the reach of every household, Only 2 a year j or two copies for $3 In clubs of four subscribers, which are furnished at the low price of Si"), it costs but $1,25 per annum.

The Delegates from several Counties in the State met in Convention at the City Hall, Columbus, on Wednesday Nov. 21th, nnd organized by the appoint mcnt of Dr. Wardsworth of Hamilton County, President ; and Dau'l Worley o Fiankun County Secretary. By request, the Secretary stated that the design in calling the Convention a this time, wa3 to take early and active measures for the completed rc-organiza tion of the American party in the State A friendly inteichange of opinion anion the delegates showed that there was still a decided American sentiment in the Slate of Ohio, notwithstanding the reverses against which as a party we have had to contend for some years past, some ques tion arose as to the authority of the Committee by whom the call for this Convention had been issued ; when the Chairman of the Committee explained, that under the supposition that the Amer ican Slate Central Committee had ceased to act, a number of Americans who met in Champaigno County, desired this Com mittee to act temporarily fur the party and take measures for iis reorganization it an early day ; and that accordingly the authority of acting for the parly at large was not claimed by them, their duty haviug been fulfilled in the meeting of this Convention. The Convention were pleased to learn that the State Central Committe still kept up their organization. With entire unanimity the following resolution was then passed : Resolved, That the Stale Central Com mittee appointed at the last American State Convention in Dayton, be requested to call a mass State Convention of the American party to meet in the City ol Columbus on the 22 d day of February next. On motion the Convention then adjourned sine die. Dan'l Worley, Secretary. A Eravk Act. At a Lincoln meeting in Carthage. Ill, Capt.

Indianapolis, Nov. 25th, 1858. Editor of the Journal :-The spe cial session of the Legislature, which has been looked forward to wiih so much interest in Indiana, and concerning whose probable action there has been so much speculation, is at last fully' organized. The intense commotion caused by the sudden assembling here of nearly ail the noliticians in tho State, has partially sub sided since the organization and the dis posal of most of the 'places" in the gift of the Legislature. Old members who are experienced, and new ones who are not so; Lccomptoiiites, Douglas men, anu publicans, office holders and oluce cckers, have been for ten days past in a state of while heat excitement. In short, not for a long time has -there been here nch a general and profound interest in the action of a Legislature at present The two Houses organized on a com promise basis; the Douglas men and Republicans uniting and snaring tue otu- mi . - . - . . I. .1 ces. rue anti-L,ecoinpioniics nave uius far utterly iefused to act with their late enemies and denouncers the Lecempton men, The latter are daily making pile ous appeals for harmony, but it is ex tremely doubtful if the Douglas men will consent to bury the hatchet. On one point the Opposition are inexorable, viz : the repudiation of the bogus Senators, Blight and 1 itch, the Uay3 ol Jesse s political existence in Indiana, where his boldness, frauds and money have so long sustained him. are numbered. Never have I seen any determination so mani fest in the facos, the words and the actions of men.as the resolve in the present Legtolaturo to repudiate, condemn and scout these high handed usurpeis; Yes terday an exciting scene occurred in the Scnato upon the introduction ot a resolu tion condemning the election of Bright and Fitch. The . Lecomptoniies clung consistently to the villiany which two years ago they conceived and executed. I he Opposition voted to a man lor repu diating ihem. And so the resolution was passed by a vote of 30 to 24 declaring the ''election of Bright and Fitch to have been ill'iral, unconstitutional and void and that they were in no sense recognized as RepresentaiiV" s in the United Males Senate of the sovereign Siate of Indiana." A similar resolution was introduced in the Lower House, pending which the House adjourned. There is no doubt it will be passeJ on to morrow (Friday) and in a few days these men wilt nave the satis faction of knowing that they have been regularly and officially spurned and de nounced by the General Assembly ol the state which they have so foully disgraced I here is very little doubt that the Im position will elect two United fcjtates Senators lo contest tho sea's there. The U. S. Senalo having decided diat Bright and Fitch are entitled to their seats, will not be likely to reverse that decision, even to act honestly ; so there is little chance of the new Senators succeeding. But (hey will be elected, they will go on, and, in person, will declare to the country that Indiana dues not indorse nor know these men who have stolen her scats in the Senate. Henry S. Lane and Judge Wm. M. McCurty are the men now spoken of for the new Senators. The former you know by rcputatien as one of the most ardent and eloquent Republicans of the West, chairman of the Philadelphia Con vention which nominated Fremont. The latter is a Douglas man with a back-bone like an oak tree, and who hales Bright nnd Fitch with ns hcly and inveterate a hatred as any man in the State. I think the Legislature will go into' this election within the next fortnight, and beyond a doubt the Opposition will unite lo a man on whatever men are selected. The Lecumpton men held a mee;ing last night in the Representative hall, to which all Democrats were invited, "who stood by the organization and who voted the party nominations." Of course Douglas men had a "poor show" upon such a call as thai. Gov. Wtllard, Judge Leeoinpton Hughes, and others, spoke. Some were disposed lo be a little concil iatory, talked about sinking minor differ ences, about tolerating variety of opinion on the President's policy, and about the "high and holy mission of Democracy" being paramount to all temporary or sec tional questions. Bui Hughes, with the pluck of a mau who sticks (o his rccoid, be il good or bad, declared that he was an Administration man, and that he fully indorsed the English bill and Buchanan's general policy. He had his speech re duced to writing and it will be published to snow, in his own words, that though defeated in his Congressional canvass he went down with his colors flying, and without having deserted one of the meas ures he had supported while there." is not yet settled what the President wil give him, since he has lost his seat in Congress by devotion to Lecomptonism but doubtless he will be provided for.

Important from Washington. The government has recieved from Cal ifornia full official accounts of the judicia proceeding in tho Limanton and Almedan land cases which have been decided in favor of the United Stales. The former claim in located in the vicinity of San Francisco, nnd with tho improvements is supposed to cover $-10,000,000 worth of property, while from the Alamedan mines, il is slated $8,000,000 worth of quicksil ver were taken out during six years. The Attorney General, with the view of bringing these long pending cases to a close, employed Mr. Stanton of I'ittsburg, to prosecute them. In the course of the trials, the most stupendous frauds wcie exposed ; the signatures of Docenegro and other distinguished Mexicans were obtained to apparently genuine titles, but the documents were ante-dated, as neces sary to consummate the ingeniously con nived deception. Much skill was shown n the forged seals, on whish the cheat was established, Eminent jurists consid er these the most important cases on re cord, involving ti'lo to lands while tho extent of forgery, all things considered is without a precedent. An Alligator is & decielful crealure,and yet he presents an open countenance when in the act of taking you in, Breakers Ahead of Douglas. Some of Douglas' most influential Eastern backers are becoming alarmed at the breakers they sue in his course, some of which they dread will shipwreck his Presidential chances. The New York Times for example, fears that the Republicans are going to introduce a bill to abolish the English bill ot last session, so as to admit Kansas whenever she may choose to apply with out regard to the number of her popula tion, which, it says, will afford a party lest, and compel politicians to define their positions. It also fears that the slave holders will bring forward a slave code to protect their human chattels on the ground thus stated : . That slaves as property must be pro tected by law of Congress against the possible inlerlerence ot a territorial Leg isliiture, or rather against the possible neglect of those Legislatures to make any law upon the subject. This is to be brought forward as a fundamental princi pie of political faith. No candidate will be considered "sound according to Southern quarantine regulations, who does nol come up to Virginia high water mark upon this point, lhe device is ingenious and is clearly aimed at Douglas The point now is to require Mr. Douglas to vote upon the proposition that toi grest shall legislate upon (his subject, for the protection of slave property within the limits of the federal territories. And the Evening Post, and other Republican papers are already chuckling over the dilemma in which the Illinois Senator will then find himself involved. Of course, ho prominent and formidabl a candidate aa Senator Douglas must not be sntlered to escape, lie win Dave a sorts of tests offered for his action, by a sections snd all parlies, and it will be and an undoubted and ever present hope of inseparable reunion ; while Faith cher ished and maintained in life, lights the dark pathway of the dead through the grave to a bright and blissful Fuiure.
