" The examination of witnesses before the Co
rode Committee at Washington, still proceeds
The proposition to make a witness of President
Iti cHASU, has sot only alarmed the old man
himself, hot created the greatest confusion and
alarm amongst his followers, ia Congress. . It
would be great saving ef . time if Xr. Bcchak
ax would consent to tell where and hew the
thousands and millions of Government jnonry
known to hare been used by him, directly and
indirectly, for electioneering, purposca, - was
spent. iBat a he refuses to do this, it as made
necessary to get this-information in a more tire-
way, from the recipients, and those through
whose' haads these' funds passed.' Some of
the witnesses trammoned hare fled the country,
others like Btchajay, hare refused to appear.
Still enough has Teen pumped ont of those al-
fready examined to show a most alarming state
of "things at Wnsaipgton eify.
i Potre ast' Dkmocsact. The House of
RepreaentatiTtea of the' TJ. States, after a spicy
and interesting debate, passed Mr. Kelson's bill
prohibiting and penishing - Polygamy in the
Territories, by the decisive rote o f 149 Teas to
60 Says. '- Were it not for theevidentreluetance
felt by the Pro-Slavery men-to establish' a pre
cedent co fraught with peril to'tbe peculiar in
strtution," the vote would have been practically
unanimous. Bat the "twin relic of barbnrmra''
held back sixty ef its trusty henchmen, though
we must say it did not rally its forces so fully
as fidelity and good policy clearly demanded.
Is not Polygamy a "patriarchal institution?"
Was it not practiced by the wisest and greatest
of the Hebrew rulers nnd sages? Why should
81avery turn its back on Its Siamese' brother?
It ia the cowardice of despair that counsels re
creancy in such a case. ' '
A coon Law.. A bill has passed both branches
of the Legislature, by a decided majority, giv
ing county Commissioners' authority to work
convicts imprisoned in the county jail. -' 'It pro
vides that whenever any person shall be con
victed of any criminal offense, committed after
the passage of the act; nil orrany part of the
punishment of which by law is an imprison
ment in the county jail,'; the ciart, in lieu of
imprisonment, mny snntence such person to hard
labor in the county jail of the proper county,
any length of time, not exceeding six monthaat
the discretion of the court. ' The labor is tp be
performed under the .direction of the County
Commissioners, whomay adopt regulations on
the subject; and the Sheriff is to pay the avails
of such labor into the treasury of the county.
' .... i , ;
GnnxmE co ox. The quiet, unobtrusive
way the Hon. William Helxick has of attend
ing to the business for which be was elected
dont seem to suit some of the gentlemen con
nected with the Locofoco press in his district,
and they indulge towards him all, manner of
dirty, false epithets.' Had ha gone there, and
.Eke Bcnssi' disgusted every decent man the
first day of his arrival, with his profanity, then
these gentlemen would have thought him a mod
el Congressman. To be a decent man wjth
these men, is a V tile more than they ever ex
pect to arrive at themselves, consequently , they
cannot tolerate it in others. But Helmick may
console himself under these attacks, as a Locofo
co of tliis town did a few day s since.' He'd Lad
a quarrel with, one of these vilifiers of jlfr. H.,
and meekly took much abuse of bim, remark
ing that a blackguard couldn't insult him, and
a gentleman wouldn't. .

Mr. Hooper said that at the proper time,
which would soon come, and when he could
be heard without prejudice, he would de
fend the pepple of Utah from the calum
nies which bad bees heaped upon them.
In the meantime he appealed to .the dis
passionate and unbiased judgment of the
House to ihi'ok better of. the 100,000 o(
their fellow creatures than they had been
represented by their enemies. It was pot
his intention to discuss the peculiar features'
of the bill, bnt he respectfully - asked the
gentlemen ;if they were prepared to meet
the coDseq-ience of its passage. Were we
not now emerging from difficulties with the
people at whom the hill was lereled. : He
warned the gentlemen that tho feelings of
Utah will be. easily aroused. .. The susnicion
ofhostinty against them, has been "allayed.
and he was clad to know that there was
better feelings now than formerly, hut if
this bill be passed, if its provisions be car
ried, those angry passions will revive and
wither al toe core. - lhenres which blazed
so fiercely while the fuel of persecution was '
heaped upon them had died out. i?.' he !
appealed to the Representatives, not of one 1
out oi alt parties, to say whether they were
prepared to rekindle the flame. As a
Delegate of all the citizens of Utah he had '
to remember that he could not allude to ,
the -division of sentiment among them on
tho subject f polygamy or any other. .. , ; ;
,. Mr. Clark.of Mo- asked to w lint extent !
polygamy exists in Utah ; wbft number has
more than one wife, and whether the regu
lation of such marriages :is binding on- the '
people -. ... , ; '
..Mr. Hooper replied that he was not prac
tically a pplygamist.;, From his observa
tion of ten year's residence in Utah, he
could - say not over one half the population
recognize polygamy, and probably not more
tnan one bait of these have- more than one
wife, each. He knew of no church regu
lation .which compelled a .man lo, become a
polygamisl; and of no church regulation
which compelled a woman to marry a man
except voluntarily. He" was . encouraged
to know that there were several gentlemen
on the floor who had been acquainted with
him for the last 20 years, and long prior to
his identification with the citizens of Utah.
They would he say was not capable of deceit
or dissimulation. He declared on his honor
thai the passage of this bill will not be un
exceptionable to the extreme-advocates of
polygamy m Utah, and it will unite all peo
ple ia common cause against the unjust
pretensions of the General Government to
put down polygamy by force. ,,-, . . -
.The . House' voted , and -rejected Mr.
Branch's substitute by 47 against 151. -The
House next voted on Mr. McClern-
and's substitute lo repeal the law organiz
ing Utah and dividing tbe territory between
Jetforson and Nevada, for which he propos
ed a temporary government.- Rejected
38 against 139.
Tbe House tabled the preamble to the
bill, which was passed, with verbal amend-,
ments 149 against 60.;
- Mr. Sickles submitted his -response to
Mr.. Williamson's memorial in his contest
ed casey and.it was read, and - after- some
debate referred to the Committee on Elec
tions. ' The House went into Committee of the
Whole-on the state of the Union. -: '

Mr.' Lovejoy said the House 'had been
engaged ' in giving : the death blow to
polygamy. By the Philadelphia platform
the Republican party stand pledged as far
as the Federal Government has the power
to Extricate that other Turin relic' of bar
barian slavery in the Territories. He want

together.' ' ' ' "; :Si ' -
' Mr. Lovejoy, warming up with his sub
ject, passed from' his seat to the area in
front of the Clerk s 'desk in ' full view of
all tho members and spoke in a loud tone

against the ground on which it was sought
tio justify slavery because tbe creatures are
poor and the strong have the power to op
press the weak.- - The rich oppress the
poor. , The spirit of slnvehelding being the

Mr. Levejoy odk the stand at the Clerk's

about Northern Christian women who went
t the South, to prevent the people there
from returning te barbarism., r: t :
, Mr Singleton said - that ha would not
allow such insinuations of Southern women
to pass if the members persisted in . that
course, of remarks. f ' He would hold him
personally responsible. : . , ( . .- , ,
Mr Lovejoy said that in the 4,000,000
slaves there was not one. legal husband,
father, wife or child, and spoke about a
Presbyterian Elder down South having the
Gospel whipped into him with the broad
side of a hand saw, and of a young girl in
this cky being ; whipped . udtil the blood
came ont of her nostrils,, and sent to the
garret to die.' " He had sworn to support
the Constitution because he loved it, but

Mr. Lovejoy 6aid when Daniel Webster
spoke of the imposition of Austra on Hun
gary he remarked that the earthquake and
.tornado have power, and .the thunder has
power, but greater than these was the pow
er of public opinion, and before this he pro
posed to arraign Austria.-, He (Lovejoy)
proposed to hold up to the retribution of
public sentiment i slaveholdiog ia all its
atrocity and hidepusness just as gentlemen
had here polygamy. ; Public seDtiment will
burn and scour out slavery. . The. proper
way is by the action of -the Blave Stales
themselves. He had endorsed the Helper
Book, because he wanted to do it. He did
so without asking tbe gentleman from
Missouri, or anybody else. You shed the
blood of my brother twenty years ago and
I am here free to speak. ., my mind. The
Republican party. would spring up-iq Ken
tucky, and gentlemen now here would find
themselves displaced .by mora .moderate,
and if it ware not offensive, he would add
more sensible men.s He wanted to. say .in
Charleston what be could here. . . . -. ;
-Mr. Bepham You, had better try it.., ;
! Mr. Lovejoy I can go to England and
there discuss the question of. Church and

don't harm you.:; If a mechanic from

Mr. Louejoy, in speaking of John Brown,
said he would not curse him; he would
pour no exertions uponold John Brown.
He condemned what he (Brown) did. -' He
disapproved of his acts; be believed, how
ever, that his purpose was a good one and
his motives honest and truthful. -John
Brown stood head and shoulders above any
man here until he was strangled. - Any
law to enslave man was as an estrangement

The principal news is important, but not
unexpected. Napoleon, with the intent of
making the Alps thejsontheastern boundary
of France, has "annexed" the duchy or pro
vince of Satey. Tbe King of Sardinia

important. ' . Cenlmritaly has almost unan
imously passed a vote of anexntion to Pied
rnoDt,aud it "was expected that when" the
fact was officially notified to him, 'Victor
Emmanuels, would march Piedmohtese
trooj)8 into his new possessions, including
the Romagna. Napoleon, has declared to
desire that he shall not thus occupy Tus
cany, but this is probably, a mere show of
opposition a seeming of carrying out the
agreement with tbe Austrian Emperor al
Villafranca, and tho provisions of the more
recent treaty of Zurich. . It is said that
should Victor Emmanuel annex the Ro
magna, he .will be excommunicated by the
Pope. Considering that he and his peo
ple virtually cast off all allagianco to the
Vatican several years ago, Victor Emman
uel is not likelp to be very greatly awed by
the PapaLBull. f Before eighteen months,
the chance is that Piedmont ; will possess
Venetia as well as Lombardy, together
with the Romagna and the three Duchies.
The Papal temporal power, judging by
present appearances, will probably last
much . longer, than .the present rale in
Naples. Thai appears on the eve of dis

' The celebrated Monsieur J allien, who
was incorrectly reported to have lately at
tempted to commit suicide, died, on the
IClh instant, in alunatic asylum in Paris.
Pecuniary reverses had so much affected
his mind that he was placed under restraint
about five weeks ago. At tbe time of his
death,: a subscription was being made, in
London, in aid of his family, who. were
loft wholly without resources. The London
Titnts says, fcFor Upwards of twenty years
the concerts- of M. Jullien have afforded
gratification to thousands upon thousands
of persons ;"and it was not his least claim
to notice that, in providing for the. amuse
ment of his patrons, he also contrived to
improve and elevate their taste, and thus
while establishing an essentially popular
entertainment to aid in the great work
of art-progress." M. Jullien, it will be re
membered, visited this-, country in 1654,
and gave Monster Concerts which wero
much more successful in an artistical than
a pecuniary manner. , -' -

The Philadelphia Gazette's letter says :
' ' It is evident from the failure of Mr.
Schell, the Collector, and Mr. Butterworth,
the Superintendent of the Assay office m
New York, to appear before' Mr. Covode's
committee yesterday, that they intend to
thwart the investigation by every available
means, and to throw obstacles in" the way
"of any further developments. -: This is one
of the immediate results of the President's
Message, for when Mr. Schell first testified
he stated thai thirty or forty thousand dol
lars had been raised in New York to his
knowledge, exclusive of other fundsy which
bad been paid over to Mr.' Pitt, to operate
in Pennsylvania. The undemanding was
that he should produce the list -of contri
butors at the next meeting, bnt in tbe
meantime the message. had been sent' to
the House, and he refused when interroga
ted. ; The committee have sent him anoth
er summons, and they intend to insist up
on the evidence required, even if it should
be necessary to invoke all the powers of the
House, and' to send him to jail as a compan
ion from Mr. Hyatt. It is proper'the
country should know who subscribed the
money in New York, and who received
it in' Pennsylvania.- ' If Presidential "elec

which read thus :
"SiK&The bearer, a worthy young man,
solicits yoqr aid in procuring employment.

Saugus, April 1, 1860." "
i Having fully identified their man, by his
receiving the letter and opening it, the
chief officer called tip five assistants and,
seizing Sanborn, put hand-cuffs on him
and hustled him towards a carriage. He
resisted, broke the carriage door, and be
fore they could get off with their prisoner,
a writ of Habeas .Corpus took him out of
the hands of the officers, and tbe result of
that we had by telegraph." '""-'' - " '
The account of the affair says: " ;
Mr. Sanborn's sister resisted to tba ex
tent of her power. " When they got him to
the door the sister ceased her resistance
and screamed at the top of her voice and
alarmed the neighbors, a score of whom
were soon on the spot. By the time they
got there Sanborn had been dragged into
the middle of the street, without his hat
and in his stocking feet. Sanborn at this
point held up his manacled hands over his
bead, and shaking tbem said : "Citizens,
look and see what the United States Sen
ate have done for me." His remarks made
a great sensation among the crowd, and
matters began to look squally for the U.
S. officers. In the meantime a messenger
was dispatched to ring the bells, and soon
they were pealing out the alarm upon the
evening air. - The crowd was momentarialy
increasing.. s. u : : r
Mr. Sanborn's sister, seeing the crowd
surrounding the officers and her brother, and
that she could do no more service thero,
seized the whip from the carriage and began
belaboring the horses-in good earnest,' but
one of the men took the whip from h-fr.
She then jumped into the carriage to pre
vent her brother being put into it, but she
was taken out with more force than polite
ness, having her clothes torn in the strug
gle. .':-,:- : - - -
- Tho boys in Mr. Sanborn's school, seeing
the peril in which their beloved mentor was
placed, acted - as scouts, end ran hastily
from house lo house, ringing door bells and
arousing citizens..; Men rushed to the scene
with clenched fists, some of which contain
ed effective weapons.' ' '. ,- Y
... The women, like the mothers of yore,
were foremost in the fray, and by every
possible means worried the officers. . Miss
Sanborn seized an officer by his beard and
compelled him to relinquish his' hold of
Mr. Sanborn. Miss Ann Whiting, daught
er of Colonel Whiting,- approached, oiheer
Tarleton, raised his ' hat, and looking bim
steadily in the face, 6aid, "Let me see what
kind of a looking man you are. ' You may
come here again some day, and I shall
want to know youl" ,: ! . : j
Mr. George L. Preseott seized the .arm
of an officer, beneath the coat sleeve of
which a "billy" was concealed, and held on
to it until Mr. Sanborn was released.,; M
. Nothing but the assurance that a "writ
would sonJ)e, obtained and Mr. Sanborn
released in a legal way, prevented the ex
asperated citizens from purameling the of
ficers and rescuing the prisoner.,. -v
Tbe citizens . generally, without distinc
tion of party, united in sympathizing wkh
Mr. SanbOrn. But three men were found
who defended the course of. the officers,
and one of tbem was Postmaster, an an
other an officer in the Custom House. vTbe
latter was roughly handled in the melee by
George Howard, Town Clerk, who laid the
democratic, official on his -back in a ditch.
