A great sensation was created bj a speech by Mr. Funk, one of the richest farmers in the State, who pays over three o'housand dollars per annum taxes towards the support of the Government. The lobby and gHlleries were crowded with spectators. Mr Funk rose to object to trifling resolu tions which were being introduced by the Democrats to kill time and stave off a vote upon the appropriation for the support of the State Government. He said ; Mr. Speaker I can sit in mv seat no longer and see such by-play going on. These men are trifling with the beat inter ests of the country. They should have osses' ears to set off their heads, or they are traitors and secessionists at heart. I say there arc traitors and secessionists at heart in this Senate. Their actions prove it. Their speeches prove it. Their gibes and laughter and cheers here nightly, when their speakers get up to denounce the Administration, prove it. lean sit here no longer and not tell these traitors what I think of them. And while so telling them, I am responsible uij'self, for what I sa3'. I stand upon my own bottom. I am ready to mecr an man on this floor, in any nrinncr, from a pin's point to the mouth of a caunon, upon this charge against these traitors. (Tremen dous applause in the galleries.) I am an old man of bixty-fivc; I came to Illinois a poor boy ; I hac made a Utile something for myoelf and family. I pay three thou snd dollars a year taxes. I am willing to Yay six thousand, aye twelve thousand, (great checiing, the old gentleman striking the desk with a blow that would knock dowu a bullock, and causing the ink-staud to fly in the air.) aye, I am willing to pay my whole fortune, and then give my life to save my country from these traitors that aie seeking to destiny it. (Tremendous applause, which the speaker could not con trol ) Mr. Speaker, you must please excuse me. I could not sit longer in my peat and calnih Listen to these traitors. My heart, that cries out for the lies of our brave volun teers iu the Geld, that these those traitors at home are destroying by thousands, would not let me. My heart that bleeds for the widows and orphans at home, would not let me. Yes, these traitors and villains ia this Senate, (striking his clenched fist on the desk with a blow that made the Senate Jing again,) arc killing my neighbor's boys now fightiug in the field. I dare to say this to these traitors right here, and I am responsible for what I say to any oue or nil of them. Let them come on now, right here. I am sixty-five years old, and I have made up my mind to risk my lifo right here, on this floor, for my country. These men sneered at Col. Mack a few days since. lie is a small man. But I am a largo man. I am ready to meet any of them in the place of Col. Mack. I am "wge enough for them, and I hold myself ready for them now and at any time. Mr. Speaker, these traitors on this floor should be provided with hempen collars. They deserve them. .They deserve hanging. X fay the country would be the better for swinging them up. I go for hanging them, and I dare to tell them so, right here to their traitorous faces. Traitors should be hung. It would be the salvation of the country to hang them. For that reason I must rejoice at it. (Tremendous cheering.) Mr. Speaker, I beg pardon of the gentlemen in this Senate who are not traitors, but true loyal men, for what I have said. I only intend it and mean it for secessionists at heart. They are here in this Senate. I see them gibe and smirk, and grin at a true Union roan. Must I defy them ? I stand here ready for them and dare them to come xjn. (Great cheering.) What man with the heart of a patriot could stand this treason any longer ? I have stood it long enough. I will stand it no more, (Cheers.) I denounce these men and their aiders and abettors as rank traitors and secessionists. Hell itself could not spew out a more trai torous crew than some of the men that disgrace this Legislature, this State, and this country. For myself I protest against 'and denounce their treasonable acts. I have voted against their nieasmes, I will jo 80 to the end. I will denounce them as long as God gives me breath ; and I am ready to meet the traitors themselrei here or elsewhere, and fight them to the death. (Prolonged cheers and shouts.) I said I paid three thousand dollars a year taxes. I do not say it to brag of it. It is my duty, yes, Mr. Speaker, my privi lege, to do it. But some of these traitors here, who are working night and day to put their miserable little bills and claims through the Legislature to make money out of the pockets of the people, are talking about high taxes. They are hypocrites as well as traitors. 1 beard some of them talking about high taxes in this way, who do not pay five dollars to the support of the Government. I denounce them as hypo crites as well as well as traitors. The reason they pretend to be afraid of high taxes is that they do not want to vote money for the relief of the soldiers. They want to embarrass the Government snd stop the war. They want to aid the secession ists to conquer our boys in the field. They care about high taxes ! They are picayune men anyhow, and pay no taxes at all, and never did, and never hope or expect to. This is an excuse for traitors. Mr. Speaker, excuse me. I feel for my country in this, her hour of danger, from the tips of my toes to the ends of my hair, That is the reason I speak as I do ! I can not help it. I am bound to tell theso men to their teeth what they are, and what the people, the true loyal people, think of them. (Tremendous cheering. The Speak er rapped upon the desk, apparently to stop it, but really to add to its volume, for I could see by his flushed cheek and flashing eye mat uis neart was wun me grave and loyal old gentleman. ) Mr. Speaker: I have said my pay. I am no speaker. This is the only speech I have made, and I do not know that it deserves to be called a speech. I could not sit still any longer and see these scoundrels and traitors work out their hellish schemes to destroy the Union, They have my sen timents ; let them one and all make the most of them. I am ready to back up all I say, and I repeat it, to meet these trtitors in any inanuer they may chose, from a pin's point to the mouth of a cannon. I never before witnessed so much excite ment in an assembly. Mr. Funk spoke with a force of natural eloquence, with a conviction and truthfulness, with a fervor and pathos which wrought up the galleries and even members on tbo floor to the high est pitch of excitement. His voice was heard in the stores that surrounded the .square, and the people came flocking in from all quarters. In five minutes he had an'audience that packed the hall to its ut most capacity. After he had concluded, the Republican members and spectators rushed up and took him by the band to congratulate him. The Democrats Baid nothing, but evidently felt the castigation they were receiving most keenly, as might be seen from their blanched cheeks and rcsMess and uneasy glances. ble of air that warns him of the seal com ing up to breathe. A.d scarcely has the animal raised its nostrils to the surface before the hunter's harpoon is deeply buried in its body. This sport is not without the danger that adds to the excitement of suc cess. The line attached to the point of the Larpoon is passed in a loop around the hunter's loins, and should th,e aqimal he has struck be a large seal or walrus, woe betide him if he does not instantly plant his feet in the notch cut for the purposo in tbo ice, and throw himself in such a posi tion that the strain on the line is as nearly as possible brought into the direction of the length of the spine of the back, and the axis of his lower limbs. A transverse pull fiom one of these powerful beasts would double hitn up across the air-hole, and perhaps break bis back ; or, if the opening be large, as it often is, when the spring is advanced, he would be dragged under water and drowned. Accidents of this kind arc but too pommon. The principal seal fjshr ery ends by the disruption of the ice, and then the reindeers are again numerous on the shores of the Artio Sea, the birds are breeding in great flocks, and the annual routine of occupation which has been briefly sketched, commences anew. A PICTURE OF ESQUIMAUX LIFE. The ordinary routine of Esquimaux life in most localities is as follows : In the month of September, the band. consisting of perhaps five or six families, moves to some well known pats, cenernllv some narrow neck of land between two lakes, and there awaits the southerly migra tion of the reindeer. When these animals approach the vicinity, some of the young men go out and gradually dri?e them towards the pass, where they arc met by other hun ters, who kill as mauy as they can with the bow and arrow. The bulk of the herd is forced into the lake, and (hers the liers-in-wait in the kajaks frpcar them at leisure. Hunting in this way, day after day, as long as the herd is passing, a large stock of venison is generally procured. If more deer are killed in. summer than can be con sumed, part of the flesh is dried, but later in the season, it i merely Jajd up in some cool deft of a rock where wild animals cannot reach it, and should it become con siderably tainted before cold weather comes on, it is only the more agreeable to the Esquimaux palate. When made very tender by keeping, it is consumed raw, or after very little cooking. In the autumn also, the migratory flocks of geese and other birds are laid under contribution, and salmon-trout and flab of various kinds are taken. In this way a winter stock of provision is procured, and not a little is required, as the Esquimaux, oeiog consumers oi animal iooo only, get through a surprising quantity. Carbon is supplied to the system by the use of much oil snd fat in the diet ; and draughts of warm blood from tbe newly killed animal are considered as contributing greatly to preserve the hunter in health. No part of tbe entrails are rejected as unfit for food. Little cleanliness is shown in the prepara tion of the intestines, and when they are rendered crwp by frost, they are eaten without further cooking. On the return of light, the winter houses are abandoned for the seal bunt on the ice, sooner or later, according to the state of the larder. The party then moves off seaward, being guided in discovering the breathing holes of the seal or walrus by their dogs. In no season is tbe hunter's skill More tested, the seal being a very wary anjmal, with acute sight, smell and hearing. It is no match, however, for the Esquimaux hunter, who, sheltered from the keen blast by a MBU-circular bank of snow, will sit motionless for hours, watching for the bub- REPORT OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. OnAmtndment of Sec. 5,Art.2ofthe Constitution. Mr. President : The Judiciary Com mittee to whom was referred House Joint Resolution No. 5, to amend Sec. 25, Art. 2, of the Constitution, have had the same under consideration and submitted the fol lowing report. Tbe Section proposed to be amended is as follows : " All sessions of the Legislature shall be held at the State Cap ital, and ill regular sessions shall commence annually on the 2nd Tuesday of January." Tbe proposed amendment provides that the sessions of tbe Legislature shall be held biennially, commencing on the 2nd Tues day of January, 1864, and omits the clause requiring them tc be held at tbe State Capital. Your Qommfttee expressing no opinion as to the general policy of biennial sessions of tbe Legislature, are of the opinion that insuperable objections exist to the proposed amendment from its incompat ibility with other sections of the Constitu tion. Section 1, of Article J., of the Constitution provides that the Governor and other State officers shall be chosen at the time and place of voting for Members nf the Legislature, and shall hold their offices for two years. Jn pursuance of this provision, and the date of taking effect of the Constitution, the next election for State officers would occur on the Tuesday suc ceeding tbe first Monday of November, 1864. But if the amendment under con sideration were adopted, there would be no election for Members of tbe Legislature in Not. 1864, and therefore no election for State officers, unless, indeed, the anamolous measure should be adopted of electing in 1864, the Members of the Legislature for 1864. Your Committee are further of opinion that said amendment is incompatible with Section 24, of Article 2, of the Constitu tion, By this Section it is provided ; " No money shall be drawn from tbe Treasury except in pursuance of a specific appropria tion made by law, and no appropriation shall be for a longer time than one year." By this Section appropriations for the cur rent expenses of tbe State for the payment of its interest on its bonds, and funded debt, can only be made for the period of one year. Jf, therefore, biennial sessions of tbe Legislature only were held, the State Government would be without appropria tions for any purpose, every alternate year. Your Committee further report that the proposed amepdmeot is inconsistent with Section 3, of Article 11, of the Constitu tion, which prescribes that tbe Legislature shall provide epefr year for raising revenue sufficient to defray tbe current expenses of the State ;" if biennial sessions only should be held, this Section oould not be complied with. No revenue could be raised for the alternate years when no session of the Legislature should be beld. The result of adopting the proposed amendment without at the same time amend ing the other Sections referred to, would be to prevent tbe election of State officers to sucoeed the present incumbents upon expi ration of their present term, or else require tbe election of tne Members of the Legis lature fifteen months before their term of office would commence. It would also prevent the raising revenue, and defraying expenses of the State Government each alternate years. Your Committee see nothing to recom mend lbs adoption of measure so palpably inconsistent and incompatible with other sections of the Constitution. It would render the fundamental lav of the State incongruous, and greatly embarrass if not suspend the operations of the State Gov eminent. Your Committee therefore recommend that the joint resoluiioo be not adopted. D. P. LOWE, Chairman. BYRON SHEBBY, P. M. VALENTINE. G, B. PIEBXJE, D. BROCKWAY. GOT. BUTLER IN BALTIMORE. Gtxaad Oration to the General-His Sfcejch to the Feople-Thc Progress of the Union Cause, ftc, Sic. Baltimore, Feb. 19, 863. General Butler arrived here this morning at ten o'clock, and was escorted to the Eqtaw. House by a Committee of the City Coun cils and Union Leaugers. The reception of General Butler at the hall of the Maryland Institute this evening was a grand affair. The vast hall was splendidly decorated with hundred of flags ana aenseiy packed with a most enthusias tic assemblage. Thirty-four young ladies dressed in white, bearing flags, were on the platform, and sang patriotic airs. A band of music was also in attendance. The appearance of tbe General was greet ed with long continued cheering. In response he made a brief speech, thanking the citizens for Baltimore for their expres sions of regard and their enthusiastic greetings, which he took as an earnest of their unalterable devotion to the Union and determination, come what may, to stand by the Government. He alluded to his first entrance into Baltimore on the night of May 14th, 861, when, ainidst a violent storm, be marched his forces to Federal Hill, and formally occupied the city. He compared the coqdition ot Baltimore then, from the iofiuen.ee of secession, with what it is now, since with the aid and protection of the Government the true-hearted Union men of Baltimore had put down rebel sway. He warmly eulogised the loyalty of .Baltimore. Alluding to the progress of the war, he said there was much very much to encourage in the progress we have made in the past year. Let us post the books and see bow we stand. A year ago, when he passed through this city on his way to the Southern coast, how did we then stand ? The rebels had all of Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas ; all of Virginia, except that portion under tbe guns of Arlington Heights and Fortress Monroe. Now we have all of Missouri, all of Kentucky, two-thirds of Arkansas, at least half of Tenncssee,and Roscerans. thank God, was there and good for the other half. We have two thirds of Virginia, a third of North Carolina, all of Florida, a large portion of Louisiana and a large portion of what was left of the bogus confederacy : Texas intriguing with the French Emperor to get away from then) j Mississippi, Ala bama, Georgia, South Carolina and what remained of Nr'b Carolina and Virginia, very soon the Mississippi river, would be in our entire control, and thus the Confedera cy woqld be severed. Wight we nqt truly say, with some of the rebel Congressmen, that another such a year of progress would see the Confederacy annihilated? Truly, the folds of the great anaconda were tight ening around the rebellion and crushing it in its irresistible grasp. He alluded to the threats of foreign interference in our affairs. Let it come. The nation would rise to the emergency. Already Congress has clothed the President with the mighty power of the entire military force of the whole nation, and if that were not enough for the over throw of domestic traitors and foreign foes, we would arm every man in the nation, white and black, blue and gray, if need be. (Great phpering.)The nation was but in its infancy. The giant of tbe Western world bad scarcely begun to put forth his strength. These throes and agonies were but the pains of teething, and when tbe teeth aro fairly through Jet traitors beware and tyrants stand back everywhere. The General sac down amid long and continued applause. quarter the sound appeared to proceed, and stood silent. After a few moments of sus pense he agajn heard the sound distinctly, and convinced that it was from without, he opened the window, when tbe question was repeated full in his ear, which startled bim not little. Upon a minute examination, however, he observed that the limb of a large oak tree, which stood under tbe win dow, projected so near tbe bouse that every breath of wind, to a lively imagination, made a noise resembling the interrogation : " Do you w-a-n-t to be shaved ? Having satisfied himself that tbe ghost was nothing more or less than the limb of n tree coming in contact with the house, he again went to bed and attempted to get asleept bqt was annoyed by peals of laugh ter, or yolleys of oaths and curses f.om the room where the gamblers where assembled, and concluding to torn th.e ghost story to bis own advantage, he took a sheet from the bed, wrapped it around him, took the wash basin in bis band, and throwing the door wide open, stalked in, asking in a tremulous voice : "Do you w-an-t to be s-h-a-v-e-d ?" Terrified at the sudden appearance of the ghost, tbe gamblers were thrown into the greatest confusion, and tumbled pell mell over each other down stairs, in their hurried attempts to escape. Uur ghost beat a hqrried retreat to his room, and was troubled no more that night with gamblers or mysterious noiss3. In the morning be found the utmost excitement and alarm prevailing in the bouse on ac count of the appearance of the ghost, and in answer to an inquiry of the landlord's, replied that tbo ghost had not troubled bim, and departed entirely unsuspected, after quietly eating bis breakfast.

Eastern States, some years ago, called at a tavern, and requested entertainment for the night. The landlord informed him it was out of his power to accommodate him, as his house was already full. After much solicitation, the landlord consented to his stopping provided he would sleep in a cer tain room that had not been occupied for a long time, in consequence of a belief that it was haunted by tbe ghost of a barber, who was reported to have been murdered in that room some years before. " Very well," says the man, " I'm not afraid of ghosts." After having refreshed himself, he in quired of the landlord how and in what manner the room in which he was to lodge was haunted. The landlord replied that sburtjy after they retired to rest an un known voice wus beard asking in a trembl ing and prolonged accent, " Do you want to be shaved V f Well," replied the man, ff if Ije somes, he may share me." He then requested to be shown to the apartment, in going to which be was con ducted through a large room twhere were seated a grt number of. persons at a gam ing table. Feeling a curiosity which almost every one possesses, after having heard ghost stories, he carefully searched every corner of his room, but could discover nothing but the usual furniture of the apartment. He then lay down, and in a few minutes imagined he heard a voice say ing: "Doyoy va-R tto he s-h-a-p-e d? JJa arose from bis bed and searched every part of the room, but could discover noth ing.

It is not a civil war, It is a section war. It is a war between two people who are as distinct as the Russians and the Daqcs, or the Saxons and the Dutch. Nor do we speak the same language. The language of the North is English, Dutch, German, Spanish a compouud, in a word, of every known language and dialect in the world. Tbe population -of the South is homogene ous. That of the North is more hetero geneous than that of the Austrian Empire. Tbe great wonder is, not that tbe two sec tions have fallen asunder at last, but that they have beld together so long. It would be almost as rational to form the whole continent of Europe into a single state, and then expeet it to contiuue such. "Mr. Vallandigham takes up tbo old geographical argument on which General Webb used to diate with so mpek; upption, and which was adopted by Lincoln in bjs last annual Message. Nothing can form the boundaries of States, it seems, but great landmarks. All tbe communities living on a great river must belong to the same Government. Certain ejevations or natural watersheds control everything in the direction in which the water from them flows. Any man who knows anything of history and geography, lcpows that this style of argument is perfectly ridiculous. How many nations are there on the Rhine ? How many on tbe Danube ? How many on tho Po ? Where is the grand natural division between Spain and Portugal ? Between France and Belgium ? Between Bavaria and Austria ? Between Germany and Russia? As for the watershed argu ment, it is sufficient to know that Switzer land is tbe water-shed for all Western Europe. " The lines of demarcation arise from the character of tbe people. If they are hostile to each other, they do not want waters or mountains to separate them. If they are not, waters and mountains cannot keep them asunder. The idea that this whole continent is to be occupied by one people is simply preposterous. Jn fite thousand years tbe world has pever seen such a thing as 200,000,000 of people, speaking tbe same language and enjoying free institutions, all under tbe same Gov ernment. It is a dream of Utopian folly to suppose that it ever can exist. The separation has begun, and it will continue. America, like tbe Old World, is to be set tled by many nations. Such is its destiny." mals the same influence upon their action is to be seen j here, again, is perfect simi larity. Although the difference of the intensity of these actions may be great in different animals, yet the principle is the. same. " The animals gratify their appetites, and so do we, and in the same manner. For instance, everybody has seen dogs playing only for the pleasure of playing, just as men do. And what right have we to as sume that the motive which influences them is not the same as that influencing us? Again, animals have memory, just as wo have; and they can trace the connection between cause and effect; and this is reason. 4 But I will go further ; only mind can communicate with mind ; and if animals had no mind, we could have no intercourse with them. Animals can be trained, and this proves the existence of reason ; a con? nection seen between cause and effect. Tbe means of training animals are the same as those employed for training children j certain sounds re used as signals. This supposes a perfect logical process, tracing. iuu sequence ot encct irom ua cause. - --m m DEPTH OF MINES IN ENGLAND. An English journal, after valuing th total products of the mines of Great Britain at 41.491, 100 per annum, and computing that England's supply of coal will last at least seven hundred years longer, at present rates of consumption, gives the following, account of the depth to which the bowel of the earth have been pierced in England: 41 Tho depth to which we mine for coal is already great. The pit at Dunkengeld, in Cheshire, is 2,004 feet below the surface to the point where it intersects the " Black Mine coal," a seam that is four feet six inches thick, and .of the best quality for domestic and manufacturing purposes. From this point a further depth of 500 feet has beon attained, by means of an en gine plane iu the bed or coal. At Pepdle ton, near Manchester, coal daily worked from the enormous depth of 2.505 feet; and the coal of Wigan is brought is brought from 1, 773 feet below tho scrfape. "The depth of Tacsvin, a copper mine, is 2,810 feet. Many other other tin and copper mines are approaching tbesp depths, and under the Atlantic waye, man is pur suing his labors daily at half a mile from the surface. Winding machines, which aro masterpieces of Mechanical skill, are ever, at work raising the minerals from each dark abyss, and i( man engiucs," of considerable ingenuity .o called because they bring the wearied miners to the light of day, saving him from the toil of climbing on perpen dicular ladders aro introduced jb many of the mines. Our coal costs us annually one thousand lives, and more than double that number of inetaliferous miners perish from accidents in the mines, or at an unusually early age, from diseases contracted from tho condition of their toils. By tbe industry qf our mining population there is annually added to our uational wealth considerably more than 30,000,000. This, when elab orated by the process of manufacture, is increased in value tenfold." HAyE ANIMALS REASONING POWERS. Professor Agassis, in a recent lecture in Boston on ." ejepbaut," eaid : M It is a favorite saying thajt men are governed b? reason, and aniaals by in stinct; but I believe that is all wrong. There is no distinction of kind between the two, but only of degree. '.' As we come to the higher animals, we find the brain larger in proportion to the size of the body. But this does not prove a different kind of activity pf these parts, but only different intensity. " Now let us see if there is any differ ence in tbe mode of action of the brains of men and animals. Every sensation, to he felt, must produce a reaction. A)l animals see, bear, smell and taste as well as we do; therefore, tne reaction must be the same, and the operation, as far as the body is concerned, is the same.

It has secrets pe culiar te itself, but of what do these princi pally consist ? They consist of signs and tokens, which serve as testimonials of character and qualifications which are con ferred after due courso of instruction and examination; they are of no small value; they speak a universal language, and are a passport to tbe support of the whole world. They cannot be lost so long as memory retains its powor. Let the possessor of them be expatriated, shipwrecked, or im prisonedlet him be stripped of everything he has in the world still these credentials remain, and are available for him as cir cumstances may require. The good effects which they produced are established by tbe incontestible facts of history. They have stayed tbe uplifted band of the destroyer ; they have softened tbe aspirations of tho tyrant; they have subdued tbe rancor of malevolence, and broken down tbe barrier of political animosity and sectional aliena tion. On the field of battle, in tbe solitudes of tbe uncultivated forest, or in the busy haunts of the crowded city, they have made men of most hostile feelings, and the most diversified conditions, rush to the aid of each other with special joy and satisfaction that tljey have been able to afford relief to. a brother Mason. DST The appraiser of the slave property of the late Charles Carroll, of Maryland, one of the largest slave owners in tbe State, have made returns assessing tbe value of 130 slaves at an average of five dollars. This is the highest price they could name after consulting with numerous owners and dealers, and i considered a striking illustration of the depreciation of .-lave property by the rebellion, and will have a powerful influence in this State. -- m .The Joye of froth is the root of all charities.
