PRESS AND TRIBUNE.
KOHDAY KOKNIKG, JAOTABY 17,1869.
The TwoXrcomjrttm?.
Tbe public are fkroWar with the argninents
employed by the Adtn?nteiraiu*a to torce the
Lecompton Coutliiution upon tho people of
wayfaring juan though a fool did not
therein, and falsehoods glaring that indig
nation was lo?t iu aramemont at contemplat
ing them : Ist. The Lecompton contrivance
was the act of the people of Kansas. 2d.
Its opponent* were traitors and fanatics of
tho Toptka breed. 3d. If the people didu't
like the Constitution they could cbungo it
when they got ready. 4th. Tho practice cf
submitting constitutions to the people was
by no meana-nnivetpal and would be attend
ed with matufefit inconvenience in this case. |
It will be remembered also that the publio ;
were for a long time kept in ignorance of the
exact chaxacter of the swindle, though all
knew Jt to be a swindle j that tho first elec
tion after its adoption by the Convention
was held under a villain apportionment
that the returns were Fnugly caudle-boxcdby
Calhoun, aud that the certificates played
hide-nod seek in the breeches of that illus
trious patriot for some time afterwards.
If the engineers aid apologists of tha Dyer
charter for the city of Chicago had drawn
their argument*, word for word, from the
messages of Buchanan and the speeches of tbo
LecomptonHes in Congress, and if they had
daguerreotyped the tactics of the Lecompton
ites in Kansas, they could not have presented
a more perfect fac simile. They are as like as
two peas, or the same pea twice over. Tbe
Stale Jlegislfr ol SpriDgfield has put forth the
only plea in faror of the Dyer contrivance,
which amounts to a defence iu detail; yet the
Register it seems had not the impudence to
give it an editorial sanction—prudently shield
ing itself by appending three asterisks (***)
to its two columns of mendacity and inis
roprosonuitlou. The Chicago 2im(s copies
this with only a subdued endowment,
as though the thing was being cut
pretty fat, by Jove I It says merely
that " the article transferred to au
" other column of this paper from the State
"Register, presents the whole subject in a
" clear and irrealtiiblo light. No reader cer
" tainly, can be in doubt as to tho intentions
"of the friends to tue movement, nor a# to
u the nature of the amendments contcmpla
" ted; and no reader, it should seem, can
" question their propriety and necessity."
As to the subject being presented in an irre
aistible light, and as to there being no doubt
concerning the intentions of the friends of the
movement, all people will agree. As to tbe
similarity of the bill itself aud the apology
put forth to sustain it, with the Lecompton
Constitution, being so cloeo as to compel tbe
belief that tbey erijoy the same pedigree and
are entitled to the same fate—we shall pro
ceed to show :
I. " The Lecompton Constitution was the
act of the people of Kansas." The Register
article says that a certain bill was prepared
by a committee consisting of Thomas Dyer,
William H. Brown, Flavel liloseley, Hugh
Mahcr, Walter L. Newberry, John H. Kinzie,
Daniel Brainard, Sylvester Liud, S.S. Hayes,
Thomas Iloyne and others. Perhaps so ; but
it was uot this bill. The Register leaves the
iufereuce broadly, that all the gentlemen
named above helped to lramc and actually
approved the Dyer Charter. The facts are,
that, deducting those who are nominated for
office under uuder it, not one of them have
ever had anything to do with the contrivance
at Springfield, and we are assured not one of
them approves it,but all loudly protest against
it. So the sum total of our population, who
demaud the enactmeut of the contrivance,
amounts to about the aggregate of the nine
tailors who addressed a petition to Parlia
ment under the caption, *We, the people of
England V- We utk this question again, If
it is believed that the Tom Dyer Charter em
bodies the will of the people of Chicago, wh»
not have it fairly submitted at the election to
be held six weeks hence ?
11. '' The opponents ot Lecompton are To
yeka traitors aud fanaiicH." Though the Re
publicanism of Chicago has not beeu made a
reason, in print, why the people should be
defrauded and di-fiunchir'id, it is notorious
that this is the chief argument depended on
at Springfield to mak'j tbe Dyer bill a caucus
measure, und thu* drive it through by a party
vote. This is the very essence of Lecomptou
ism. It ineaua tint no crime against consti
tutional rights is too great to be justified by
the needs of a few hungry politicians.
111. "If the people do not want the.C«n
stitution, they can alter it at their pleasure."
At this point the likeness is at fault, and the
original Lecompton has an immeasurable ad
vantage over the Illinois thing. The Dyer
bill is framed with an express view of never
being changed. It is self-perpetuating. It
givesno promise of alteration, however odious
to the voters and property-holders, unle.-s re
versed at some future time by another Legis
lature ] and even then the alteration will be
made by men liviug from one to four hun
dred miles from the Interests at stake—the
people of Chicago having as little to say iu
the premises, as the dwellers around the high
hills of Bagdad.
IV. '* Submiesion to the popular vote is
not essential to the justice or legality of the
measure and might beattcuded with incouvc- j
nience." This was the most llagraut feature j
of Lecompton, aud is the most shameless :
falsehood enveloping the , ( Dyer charter.
Basing all their hopes on a' scheme to defeat
the mnjority of the voters, its advocates un
derstand that a submission to the people
would be as profitless as playing penny-poker,
right hand against left. They have got 100
old to find amusement in pulling a sled up
hill to ride down on. The farce of passing a
law known to be odious to the people and
then giving the people a chauce to vote on
it, is not the entertainment to which they
have invited themselves. Therefore they
Wisely avoid any discussion or this point,
when brought down to it, not only argu
ment but impudence fails them.
But let us see wherein the tactics of Cal
houa have been copied by Dyer and Co. Ia
the lirEt place the bill has not yet been intro
duced, and therefore its provisions are al
tered from day to day, to blind the public
tight and forestall publio oj.lulou aa to its
real character. Herc.w Lecompton again.
In the next place, it apportions the Wards- in
Euch a way that one-third of the population
•hall inevitably rule the ether two-third?.
Here is more of Lecomploa. Next, it pro
vides for a Board ol Police Commissioners
antecedent to any election whatever, to l>e
appointed by the power which eaacts tbe
charter. Here is a feature corresponding
with the Dictatorship conferred upon John
Calhoun. Lecompton from first to last, from
top to bottom, lrom inside to outside*
But tbe likeness does not end here. The
Lecompton Constitution was so repulsive
and criminal in all its bearings, that the peo
ple of Kansas resolved never to live under it.
In this resolution they were supported by
both political parties in Illinois. Let Dyer
& Co. succeed in their undertaking, and then
see whether the citizens of Chicago are mora
craven iu spirit than their brethren beyond
the MisEouri River, or Blower to profit by the
teachings of the late campaign.

Nrtv l ine of Strnmors to ran in Con
nection with the (Jrand Trunk Rail"
vfH y from Galway, Ireland, to Que
bec.
In giviug some account of the n#w lines ot
railway to the seaboard oa Wednesday morn
ing of last week, we spoke somewhat at
leugth of tbe gigantic schemes soon to be
realized by tbe completion of tbe tubular iron
-bridge at Montreal, and tbe opening of tbe
Grand Trunk RaTlwuy of Canada to Detroit.
Wo bare before us a pamphlet of thirty-two
pages, marked •' private and confidential,"
getting forth tbe reasons which have induced
tbe formation of tbe 44 Atlantic Royal Mail
Steam Navigation Company," for the purpose
of u placing & line of first-class and power
ful steamers between the nearest ports of Eu
rope and America." Tbese ports, as stated |
in tbe pamphlet, and indicated on the map
published with It, are Galway in Ireland, and
Quebec and Portland on ibis side of tbe At
lautic. It is known to our readers that a line
of largo and very .fioe screw eteamers is es
tablished between Liverpool and Quebec, aud
those who have noticed oux telegraphic dis
patches will remember that fcr the last year
or two a very considerable portion of our for
eign news has pome by this line. Galway is
on the west coast ol Ireland, has a fiue har
bor, and is directly west of Liverpool. A
railway connects Dublin and Galway, so that
tbe shortest possible time could be made be
tweeu tbe two cities.
The pamphlet urges tbe establishment of
the new line, from tbe fact that lour compa
nies have been established since tbe Cnnard
liue went into operation, and yet the latter
Company is now more prosperous than ever,
and all of them are doing a lucrative and
rapidly increasing business.
The writer eutere into a critical, elaborate
and highly interesting statement of the pre
sent condition and prospects of the British
American Provinces, and of the American
States bordering upon tbe valley of tbe St.
Lawrence. Statistics are given in abundance
showing tbe extent and the value of their
commerce, and the astonishing progress they
have made in wealth nuU population during
the last few years. These figures would not
be new to the readers of tbo Fbess and Tri
bune, but the liberal and in the main accu
rate manner in which they are introduced,
shows the kind of argumeut which Eaglish
capitalists use and appreciate. Tbe vast ex
tent and the untold advautages of our lake
and river navigation, seem to have been well
understood by tbe writer, and the importance
of a connection with that inland navigation
and tbe rich commerce it will yield is cor
restly and forcibly stated. The fact that the
Grand Trunk Hallway is so soon to be com
pleted to the ceutre of tbe continent, and its
mineral and agricultural riches rendered
available to European trade by this, the
shortest and the quickest possible route, is
also used to. urge the early establishment of
this new lie of steamers.
But the facts and the figures of the writer
are not bounded by that portion of tbe Amer
ican continent now under cultivation and
settlement. The accompanying map stretch
es entirely across the continent to Pnget T s
Sound. Speaking of tho territory between
Lake Superior and the Pacific, the writer
says:
It equals in size tbe whole of Europe, and
there is every reason to believe that in the
greater portion it will be found that tbe land is
as fertiLe as in either France, Italy or England.
All around and tar beyond the Columbia and
tbe IVazer Hirers, are territories which reauire
only colonization to rival in fertility tho most
favorable spots on tbe g.obe. There is no want
of water or timber; there is plenty of coal, and
there is less winter than in Great Britain. All
the serials that grow in France, Spain and Eng
land, grow there luxuriantly.
One thing only is wanted, and that is a short
cut across this, our own territory to tbe Pacitic
—a distance of only 1,t>50 miles. Tbe passage
then from England to Canton would only occu
py from thirty-tire to forty days. Attention is
particularly drawn to this route, as laid down in
the map in this pamphlet.
In the Jforcing Post of London, Angast IS,
it is stated that an important pnblic meeting
was held in Toronto, Caoadu, on tbe SOtb July,
at which Mr. Allen McDonald stated that be
had spent many years of bis life west of Lkke
Superior, and could, therefore, give bis opinion
with contidence oa this important subject.
Leaving the gold question aside, be could speak
from experience, that tbe coontry, tor agricul
tural purposes, was unrivalled—far better even
than Canada itself.
He also stated, that a Companv formed in Ca
nada, of which be was a member, and a bill to
incorporate tbe Company, had passed the sec
ond reading in tbe Canadian Legislature, tbe ob
ject ot which was to re-establish a commuoica
tion with the Pacific shore. This Company
hoped to be t»b'e, almoit imrntdiattly to cfier to
emigrants lor .New Columbia, -a short and cheap
route.
The ronte was from Pembiaa down the Red
Hirer into Lake Winnipeg; from theoce they
would be able to go up tlie Saskatchewan Hirer,
which was navigable by steamer lor the distance
of 1.400 miles. If the ronte ot the Northwest
country were Btruck, and tbe course of the
Peade Hirer followed, it would bring us within
375 paces of the Frazer aad Thompson Hirers.
There was no country in-the world that had so
complete a chain of navigable waters as this.
From Lake Superior to tbe Lake of Woods,
there was not a portage over three miles in
length, some of them were not more than six
teen yards.
The Company which be had mentioned pro
posed to build a class of boats which could
readily be taken out of the water, and by means
of tramways convey over these portages with
out breaking bulk.
On tbe Saskatchewan, west of Lake Winni
peg, there was only one portage, about a mile in
length.
Mr. Hops, a gentleman introduced by the
Chairman as having been lor a long time in tbe
employ of tbe Northwest and Hudson's Bay*
Companies, next addressed the meeting.
< lie had travelled to tbe Pacific via Fort
William, liainy Luke, tbe Lake ol tbe Woods,
Lake Winnipeg, down tbe Atbabaaka Hiver, and :
across the Hocky Mountains. He crossed tbese
mountains in tbe winter; their tops.were cover
ed with snow and ice, but when be arrived in
tbe valley of the Columbia, there waa a com
plete chang'e, the cold entirely "disappeared. To
sbovr the mildness of the climate in New Cale
donia, he might mention that he had bathed -in [
the nrertbe whole year round; At the conflu
ence ot tbe Frc3er and Thompson Hirers he bad
also wintered. . They bad no snow until Febru
ary,and then it fell to the depth of two or three
feet, but disappeared in three weeks. With re
spect to tbe time the journey would occupy, we
could go from Toronto to Fort William in four
days, from thence to Lake Winnipeg *in eight
days, and np the Saskatchewan to the Rocky
Mountains in twenty day*. Tbe country through
its whole extent was as fertile as it had been
described, and means ol conrerance were plen
tiful- When he was on the banks of the Colum
bia Hirer, be knew one Indian chief alone wbo
owned 1,200 horses. A horse there might be
bought lor a blanket worth about 6s. Gd. sterling.
A gun which in England cost 22a. Gd. t be had
himself sold for twenty large bearer skins, each
oae of which was worth ss—f 100 for an article
which cost '22s. tid. in England. [Cheers.] Tbe
Indians on this side of tbe Rocky Mountains
were pacific, glad to 6ee any white man, and if
the pipe were banded to them, would cfor the
best their lodge afforded. On tbe other side
they were eaid to be rather hostile towards the
people who were now entering tbe country.
This is bnt one uraoug a thousand examples
to show that English capitalists and states
men arc beginning to understand the value
and the extent of their possessions weflt of
Lake Superior. With the returing tide of
prosperity which the immense amounts of
idle capital in the moni< d centres of the
world must soon diffuse through all the chan
nels of trade and progress, the completion of
a railway across the Am rican coutiuent
through the British poe-esfions, inay be
among the mighty work? which the intelli
gent, restlere energy of the Anglo-Saxon race
shall accomplish. It would b.» a far more
worthy achievement than any conqueror has
ever been able to hand down to after ages.
The Proposed Kew Territory ofColona.
The Washington reporter lor the Associated
: Press might have saved, himself the trouble
j of sending forward a dispatch Baying that
I Mr. Buchanan wonld oppose the organization
I of the new Territory of Colons. Mr. Bn-
I chanan's antecedents and his close aflilifl
tion with the Slavery Propaganda long
ago fixed his position; and in the matter
which Mr. Colfax has taken in hand, and will
press villi all possible haste, the Prcsiuenfs
aid was not expected ; on the contrary hie
early, persistent and vigorous opposition was
lookei for; and now nobody is disappointed
in finding that it has already commenced.
Thsdayfertbe exercise of influence by tbe
Administration in power, has passed. "Brute
force " In the shap? of the veto, is yet at the
President's disposal; and he may wield.that
for tbe denial of 6ettlcr's rights ; bnt let the
author of the bill for the organization ofCo
lona push forward, and he will compel our
venerable Dictator to make another and more
explicit declaration of hie hostility to popu
lar sovereignty and Territorial rights. Mr.
Colfax already deserves the thanks of every
man who will emfgrato to the hew gold fields,
for his timely action. _ Let him adopt "the

Illinois Judiciary-Pay of the Judges*
T1 je defeat in the Senate of tho proposition
to Vox each suit at law a docket fee of one dol
l&c, for the n*e and benefit of the Judge iu
whose court it Is commenced j and the defeat
at the same time of Underwood's bill, by
which tbe Judges of tbe Supreme and Cir
cuit Courts were constituted a body of Com
missioners for the revision of the laws, make
iFappareuPthat" nothing will be tloie - during
the present session of the Legislature for the
relief of tbe ehief officers of our judicial sys
tem ; and that, they must contlnne as hereto
fore to discb arge their difficult and delicate
duties for about the salary of an ordinary
salesman in a city man-millinery establish
ment. While we regret that this action has
shut off all hope of increase of pay for the
able and faithful body of men who ore now
on the Bench, we are compelled to commend
that fear of violating tbe constitution, by
which the majority were controlled. Their
votes did not proceed from a niggardly spirit
or a desire to make the Judiciary leel the
weight of the legislative arm ; but from
scruples in regard to the constitutionality of
the action proposed, which they could not
overcome. As their dissent was probably de
clared after full examination of the points in
/ volved, we may not hope that their action
will be reversed. The Judges must continue
to give their time and talents to the people
for a ridisuloasly inadequate compensation
or they will resign.
An Officer Murdered.
We learn from the Oqnawka Plaindealer of
the 13th inst. tbe particulars of a shocking
tragedy in Henderson County, resulting in the
death of David Welch a constable of that place,
at the hands of Jacob Yeder, aided by Enoch
Hollingsworth. It appears that the father of
Enoch Hollingsworth owns a mill near Oqnaw
ka, and some time ago made an arrangement
with another son of his, Addison Hollingswortb,
to take charge of it and run it on his own ac
count. Subsequently the elder Hollingsworth
changed his mind, and desired his son Addison
to give up tbe mill which the latter refused to
do. On Monday last, Addison left home, and
his brother Enoch, at once moved his family
into the mill, taking possession of it on his fa
ther's account, end having with him Jacob
Yeder. On the return of Addison a violent al
tercation took place between him and the parties
in possession, ending in blows,in which the for
mer was worsted. He at once proceeded to
town, got out a warrant for tbe arrest ot his
brother and Yeder for assault and battery. This
was placed in the hands of David Welch, who
on attempting to execute it was shot by Yeder,
the ball taking effect in his leg, shattering it
horribly. The leg was amputated, bat Welch
died the next day. Hollingsworth and Yeder
are in custody.
Frees and Tribane's Annual Review*
We made a note of it last week, but it was
crowded out, that tbe Prist and Tribune has its
Annual Review of the great branches of busi
ness ot Chicago, for 1853, and snch an one as is
decisive of two tbingß.
Firtt—'That there isnosuch newspaper for en
terpriseand. business in sight, in all tbe North
west, and none Southwest, the St. Louis Repub
lican excepted. It must have taken as much
work to get up this old year's exhibit as
made a dozen regular dailies. But tbe paper
does the same every year. Such a power in
Chicago as that united press, is a matter of
pride and joy to all except political ioes; and
even they must concede its great value as a
business sheet always alive to the interests of
the country giving itsupport, to say nothing of
its ability as a newspaper in a literary and po
litical capacity. It deserves to thrive beyond
any contingency of the hard times, and may it
find that its Annual, for 1659, shall include a
large prosperity for tbe Press and Tribune. j
S»conily—This Annual exhibit of three or
four pages of tignres, that cannot lie, shows
that Chicago can make a conclusive answer to
all such Eastern strictures as 4 * ho owns Chi
cago ?"—"Chicago to let"—-"Her bottom dropt
out", etc. These are all answered in tbe same
way that' Webster answered Hajnes about Mas
sachusetts, viz: "There she is, with her Lex
ington, her Concord, and her Bunker Hill."
So the Press and 1 ribune points to her balance
sheet and says, of 1655, "there it is, and thongh
less than some years showing, there are ber
shipping, ber trade, ber building, her Btrest
improvement, ber manufacturing, ber popula
tion, etc."
It iqifibt have gone on and said—'"There she
is with ber hotels, enough to feed, a 8 she does,
half tbe travelers of the Union—there are ber
Public Schools, ahead of some Colleges, even at
the East—there are ber half a dozen noble en
dowments of Colleges, and Theological Semina
ries, and nobly manned; there are her new
Churches, marble and v;ist, ornate and lofty,
and beyond the growth and of the same strength
and beauties in tbe sanctuaries of any other city
Ei9t," Weßt, North or Sonth, in tbe same year ;
there is ber newly touched, enlarged Court
House that would grace tbe Capital ot many a
State; ber Natural History Society, with a li
brary of 16,000 volumes; ber new Law Library,
free to alt the Bar on pitying a pittance ; and
last, but cot least, ber great Railroad interests
—one citizen having subscribed $1,600,000 to
the completion of one of ber dozen roads of
equal extent."
. Foreign capital may be in these—as where is
it not? and to the question—"Who owns Chi
cago ?*' sha may answer, •' We don't care who
owns it; here it is,vaster than St. Louis in area
—the equal of New Orleans in population, and
as busy as New York on 'Change, and every way
more like that liabel in its style of life—too fan
though it be -than any other city in tbe Union."
She can affird to be slanilered ; aud reposing
meauwbile in her rautcble*3 position,'tvvixt her
like of water and lakes of land—the one the high
way of her ships, and the other of her studs of iron
horses—and trusting in the virtue and prowess of
her 123,000 and more of people, and in the "good
time coining," with the coming good crop, she
will, in the next twelve n.onths, tell the taunters,
Ea«t and South, that *' her bottom" is ad sure uni
deep as that which holds her great waters. "Her
ownership" is like that of h°r people, where every
man owns himself, and as to being 44 to let," fhc
will open her gates to let half the East, in its un
rest aud disquiet, come in. or go through to the
repions beyoud, but only to return to pay her
tribute.—Aurora Btaeon, i3f/i.

A Letter from Pike's Peak*
tfrom (be Ho. Republican, 12th.]
Capt. Geo. J. King yeaterdoy received a let
ter from Mr. John Q. Harris, a well-known Mis
souri Hirer pilot, who was lately seized with
[ the gold ferer. and emigrated to Pike's Peak,
from which we make tbe following eztraet: -
Ariuaji. Not. 19,15G9.
I bare arrived at Cberrv Valley, and tied it

Fort Kearny. We have built a bouse and ex
' pect to move into it to-morrow. Our trip out
was pleasant. A word about the mines. A man
can make from $3 to $lO per day. There is gold
all over tbe country, and old miners say that if
a man will work, he will do well at mintng any
where. Ie n well pleased with my trip, and am
pertectly satisfied that I made it.
- I think this will prove a gocd coontry for

Railroads in the West.
The Cincinnati Railroad Record sums up an in*
teresting article on the Railroads of tbe West at
.the close of 1858, as follon-s:
Thus we have 0,424 of Railroads finished
in nine States, comprehending over 400.000 square
miles.- In one of the»e SUtes (Ohio.) the pro
• portion' Is one to 14 square miles. In another
(Indiana,) one in 23. in a third. (Illinois,) one In
24. In*fourth (Michigan) one in 100. Iu a
fifth (Wisconsin) one in 85. la lowa, ono in 210 ;
in Kentucky, one in 170; and in Missouri, one in
155. We may safely assume, that in a few yean,
this region will have a proportion as large as one
in 25 square miles; in which case the Central Eall
£tyd sjtslem will contain 16,000 squares miles,—

Since my last letter, the Republicans of this
Btate, through their members of the Legislature,
' have achieved the glorious triumph of electing a
thorough Republican to the United States Senate
in the place of Charles E. Stuart, whose term of
office expires on the fourth of Mirch next. His
successor, Ex-Governor Bingham, is too well
knawn tolheicaderg of the
and to the people generally, to require anydntro?
duction at my hands. His popularity In this State
is wsll attested by tbe fact that he received a
handsome majority on the first informal ballot in
the Republican cause. Stuart will unquestionably
be taken care of and provided with a place by tbe
Administration, to whose dictates he has so dis
gracefully succumbed Governor Bingham gives
his levee at the Benton House on Thursday even
ing of next week.
Since the excitement incidental to the Sena
torial question has passed away, the Legislature
has gradually settled down to the work of the ses
sion. No bills of importance or of interest out
side of the State have as yet been introduced, with
perhaps the exception of a bill to establish an emi
grant agency abroad, for this State ; also, a " bill
to provide for ascertaining the annual cereal pro
ducts of the State," which is popular with tbe
members, and will paas without any opposition.
Under this act, information as to the number of
acres of wheat, com, oat 3 and barley sown and
planted in each township and district in the State,
will be given to the people on or before tbe first
day of Jnly of each year. This is a step in the
right direction, and one, it is to be hoped, that
will be taken by every wheatrgrowing State in the
Union.
There is a strong disposition manifested among
the members, at this session, to pr&» forward the
long talked of question of ceding back to the Gen
eral Government the Upper Peninsula of this State,
with the hope that a new State will be erected
therefrom. I have no doubt but that the first
active measures on the part of the National Ad
ministration to acquire Cuba, will be the signal
for its lull and final accomplishment. More anon,
however, on this subject.
Charles E. Stuart was the Locofoco caucus can
didate for United States Senater, which body alio
endorsed fully the Administration of Buchanan.
So much for Stuart's betrayal and repudiation of
Douglas and his doctrines. Peninsular.
The Public Execution of Criminals.
Editors Press and Tribune:
The number of murder trials now before our
Courts calls our attention to the subject of public
executions. Must the moral sense of this com
munity again be outraged l yone.or more of these
revolting and inhuman exhibitions? Cannot our
present Legislature pass a law by which these
expected executions can be made private? Ia
my opinion the cauie of morality calls londly for
such a step. A, IL G.

Some of the Female Celebrities of
Washington.
The New York correspondent of the Spring
field (Slasa.) Republican gives the following pen
and-ink portrait ofa'few ofthe lady celebrities
of Washington, full' length photographs of
whom may be found at Brady's on Broadway:
First stands Mrs.*Dougluß; her pbyisiqne is
splendid— not so;t and pliant, but proud and
queenly, after tbe Roman modeL Dark hair, blue
eyes, classic features, brilliant complexion, with
a commanding rather than winning expression.
The picture does not do ber justice. Her
dress of black silk is not becoming, and is made
in a fashion which robs somewhat the grace of
her perfect form. Next stands ilrs. Conrad, all
grace, clad in black velvet with pearls. A wily,
a subtle, a beautiful Greek, with far searching
eyes, peach-tinted cheek, and wavy, goldeo
brown nair. Mrs. Conrad, is a young and rich
widow, " who (another has said) has too good
sense to marry." She is calied the
greatest courtier in Washington, and ex
erts no small influence over State affairs.
Beside her, stands Madame Le Vert of Mobile,
lone a habitoe of Washington, who for he social
genhu Is pre eminent ahove all American women.
Madame Le Vert, withoutbcinff beautiful, either in
form or featute, has reigned aa a "belle" since she
was ten years old. She has traveled widely, has
v sited nearly all foreign courts, can carry «n con
versation in six diftercnt languages at one time,
and be equally charming in all. Yet not in b«r
talents, oor in ber accomplishments, lus her fasci
nation,but iu the genial sweetness, naturalness,
and perfect simplicity of her maunere, which
feems to give her possession of all hearts. Her
dear, blue-eye overfiows with the exuberanco of
kindness, while around the «rene mcnlh all gen
tle affections seem to have found dwelling. She
wears a dread of brown silk with gorgeous bordered
flounces, and a crimson ro»e in ber hair. The sweet
est compliment I ever heard for Madame Le Vert
was uttered to me by one or her personal frieuds
—"She i.s like a flower out in nature." Next her
. is Harriet Lane, of the " White House," Mr. Bu
chanan's niece. A blonde', cold and sfatoesqu?
pure, and passionless as marble-bone's verv ad
: miration tives them a chill. She stands in'a ve
randah— the Capitol in fight. A spray of flowers .
in her fair hair falls low upon her bare and bean
tiftil neck. She looks a model of repose, the very-
Miss Lane, whom the papers assure ns •• receives •
with great digultv." And then, Lady Gore Oase-
Iy,the Yankee Eoglish woman, who had seen lit
recently to dip ber fingers, in Nicaraguan affairs,
who, according to the New York 'Jimet, rules not
only her dear " Sir William," bnt our lady-like
old President. Well! she is coarse and homely
enough; and according to the notion of yonr
, " own correspondent," is dressed in horrid
taste. She wears a string of jets around ber
head, of the size of walnuts; another around ber
neck of equal rotundity. She d«e«-not seem to
care for an ample skirt, and has utterly discard
ed tho "line of beauty" in ita "fall/' for it is
" skimped" shorter behind than before, and the
finances curve up on the sides.. Bnt she has a
falcon eye, and ber whole bearing indicates, in
even morethan an ordinary degree, tbe woman's 1
penchant and power to rale.

In lieu of straps across the instep, each skate
is provided with a patent leather boot. These
boots are firmly attached by a strip of plated
B silver to tbe clogs, which are of satin-wood,
highly polished. Tbe skate irons terminate in
front in tbe appropriate and graceful neck of
a swan, and both sides are elegantly chased.
The cup that forms tbe receptacles for the heels
is silver-plated, and chased with the design of a
rose, shamrock and thistle. The same design is
• embroidered in white silk upon the black patent
f leather, to which it forms a pleasing contrast.
The size gracetully corresponds to the small
9 foot of her Mejesty, and when mounted on
r them, 'tis said sue looks elegantly.

—Tbe Paris correspondent of tbe Boston

-1 ing in regard to a late visit of the venerable

"Lord Brougham is ot present in Paris. The

tboogh eighty winters are upon him and all his

missary apologized for the otficious zeal of bis
underlings, and Mr. Lee was set at liberty. The

hat like that which Mr. Lee habitually wears,
without being a lied Republican.
—Tbe Lowell Xttca tells " how on authoress
did it," in tbe following paragraph:
"Miss AnnaT. Wilber of Newburvport, by
1 her contributions to j-eriodicals, attracted th«i
attention ol an educated farmer of Ohio, who
• opened u correspondence with her. At length
they agreed to meet at u half-way point, atul if
• ' their fmpressiocs, on Reeing each other for the
first time, were not agreeable, they would sepa
rate again 5 if otherwise, wbj—we'll let her tell
the story herself:
" 1 need not tell how an Ohio farmer first bad
bis attention attracted to an occasional contribu
. tor to the Eistern periodicals, or what motive
first prompted bim to address a note of interro
gation to said writer, to be followed br mutual
' questions and replies, till the parties became
i desirous of meeting, met, and—were married.
| Tbe annals of romance narrate few briefer
; courtfbips, and 1 may say few more sensible
one?. No " meetinga-by moonlight alone no
frowns of opposing relatives; no jealousies ol
rivals, or lovers' quarrels. Pust the day-dreams
; of youth—by tbe world around termed old
bachelor and old maid—we had not yet relin
quished our faith in human goodness, or lost the
lervor of feeling, that intercourse with the world
too often chills. So, having fully made up our
minds tbat we were congenial, and ougnt to
love each other, we met, and did love each
other. The experience of three years of married
life b9S satisfied us tbat the majority of mankind
are ia the wronf, and we ore in the right. 1
1 mean to say that we should learn to love men
: tally and morally first, and personally after
wards."

I. S. L. McGill on Tuesday mortlng last, Jan. 4th,
d nrar a stable. JobnCorbett, Esq, summoned
a a jury to investigate the cause of the death, ard
s they rendered a verdict of accidental drowning,
t From the evidence, it appears that quite a num-
ber of small boys were engaged in disturbing
[1 a staging school in the Son's Hall, and some
q one of tbem giving the alarm that they would
be caught, as tbe movement ot some one icside
indicated a pursuer, they scampered off in all
0 directions, each one for himself. Several of
them started to get across the enclosure ot Mr.
e McGill, the deceased among tbe and
the cistern being in the track, wide open, with
same fire feet of water in it, received the tugi
c tivein its cold embrace and drowned him at
, once, probably. The boys next morningmissing
> their companion of the night before, and think
s ing perhaps that he was drowned, went to the
cistern and found him.—Jtrstyti'.U Prairie
