1 he Apportionment Bill. 1
We re-publish Senator Goudy*s Apportion- \
meat bill with corrections which we fiad io
the official report of tho State Journal, The 1
cot y which appeared in ouryesterday's issue' J
was takeu from the Chicago Timu and con- \
taioed the radical errors of making the whole '
-number of Representatives seventy Sve in
stead of eighty—giving the Districts of La 1
saUe, Winnebago and Boone, and Adams one 1
representative each inHtgiftd of two, and omit- ]
ting several counties altogether. The whole 1
number of Senators It twenty-five, and of Re- !
presentatives, eighty.
While thess corrections remove some of the 1
grosaest features of unfairness and illegality 1
in tbe proposed gerrymander, the scheme re
mains, as a whole, more unjust to tbe major
ity of the voters as shown in the State elec
tions of 1856 and 1858, than the apportion
ment which we arc now suffering uuder—fit
ted to a population existing ten years ago.
Every one familiar with the geography of the
State will comprehend this by glancing
at£ the thirty-third Representative District,
where Champaign connty is linked in a mon
strous oblong with Effingham county—the dis
trict extending from north to couth through
nearly two degrees of latitude 1 By this ar
rangement it is hoped to e&bctually crush
the Republican majorities in Champaign, De
Witt and Piatt countie?, which are represent
ed under the present law by a Republican
member, A similar fraud is perpetrated on
the oountles ot Coles and Edgar, and u like
swindle is sought to be improved on St. Clair.
Cook county is butchered by dividing the
town of West Chicago into West Chicago and
South- West Chicago—the latter precinct being
a novelty not laid down in any of our maps.
"South-West Chicago " is believed to co: tain
niberniaoffsnough to overslaugh the Repub
lican majority in the south half of the county.
To oonsummate this fraud it becomes neces
sary to enact a special law creating the town
of *'South-West Chicago," which is being
doue as rapidly as may be.
We do not apprehend anything more dire
ful from the introduction of this bill at thin
eleventh hour of the session, than a relapse to
the former status quo. A new census will be
taken next year, which the constitution makes
tSc basis tor still aaother apportionment.
Ihe returns will probably- bs ready at
the next meeting of tho Legislature
in 1&C1, or if not, a Fpcciul session
will be necessary, to re-district the State for
Representatives In Congress, and both jobs
can be done at the same time. There is so
sufficient reason why the people should be
j<bu£Bed out.of their accustomed places for a
6ingle elec iou. The population oftbe Stale
has undergone great changes cince 1855
the census of that year being the basis of the
present bill. The Democracy cannot gftin
more than two or three members even by
this shameless carving. So small an acces
sion is not worth the battle they will have to
make to secure the enactment of Mr. Goudy'tf
IrilL They will be no more able to defy the
people and trample down constitutional privi
leges then, than they arc now.
We subjoin the sections of the Constitution
having reference to Apportionments for mem
bers of the Legislature:
A&txcle 111, Sec. B—ln tbe year one thousand
eight hundred und tifty-five, and every tenth
year thereafter, an eouaitr&uon of all the in
habitants of this State shall be made ia such
- manner as shall be directed by law; and in the
year eighteen hundred and fifty, and every
tenth year thereafter, tbe census taken by the
authority of the Government ot the United
States, shall be adopted by the G neral Assem
bly as tbe enumeration of this -State; and tbe
namuer of Senators and Representatives shall,
at tbe firat regular session holdeu after the re
turns herein provided for are made, be appor
tioned among tbe several counties or districts to
be established by law, according to the number
of white inbabitauU.
0. Senatorial and representative districts shall
be composed of contiguous territory bounded by
county lines, and only one Senator allowed to
each aenatorial, and not more than three repre
sentatives to any representative district; Pro
vidtd, that cities and towns containing tbe re
quisite population may be erected into separate
oistricta.
10. In forming senatorial and repressntative
districts, counties containing a population of
not more than one-fourth over tbe existing ratio
shall form separate districts, and the excess
shall be given to the nearest county or counties
not having a Senator or Representative, as tbe
case may be, which has tbe largest white popu
lation.
The Debate on tbe Slave-Trade.
Our readers will remember a telegraphic
Fynopeisol adebilc on the African Slave
Trade ia the llsuse of Representatives last
Wtdaefcday. The Congressional Globe of the
27th brings us the debate in full, embracing
ten columns of unusually spirited discussion,
io which the slave traders exhibited a numer
ical strength eutitlcd to grave consideration.
The subject came before the Eoase ia Cotn
mitte of the Whole, in an amendment to the
Consular and Diplomatic bill offered by ilr.
Singleton ol Mississippi, in the following
words:
And provided further t That no part of said ap
propriation shall be used tor tbe support or ed
ucation of any Africans heretofore retorned, or
hereafter to be returned, to their native conn
trv. under tbe provisions of said act of 3d March
1819, after the same are delivered into the bands
of the agent or agents appointed to receive
them from the United States.
The section iu the act of 1810 referred to
if as follows:
" That the President of the United States be,
ami he is hereby authorised to make such regu
lations and arrangements as he may d?em expe
dient for the safe-keeping, support and remotal
beyond the limits of tU United Utates, of all such
negroes, mulattoes, or persons of color, as may
be so delivered and brought within their juris
diction ; and to appoint a proper person or per
sons, residing upon the coast of Africa, as agent
or agents, tor receiving the negroes, mulattoes,
or persons of color, delivered from onboard
veaaels seised in tbe prosecution ot the Qlave
trade, by commanders of the United States
armed vessels."
The first speech was made by Mr. Crawford,
of Georgia, who opposed the appropriation
vehemently, aud declared thai though the
South had been formerly unanimous la con
demning tbe slave trade, she wai now becotn
. ing divided on it j and that" unless the war
" upon slavery is stopped, fifteen years will
** witness the trade open for the South, and
" our then Mexican possessions reaching to
'' Guatemala oertainly, and farther south."
Tbe next speaker was Mr.Stewart, of Mary
laud, who supported the appropriation aDd
defeuded the President for his action in the
Echo case.
Mr. Moore of Alabama, followed, venting
heavy Alabama thunder against the Coloni
sation Society. He deemed that organization
an.Vabor;ion," and be would'not vote a dol
lar which could by any indirection get Into
its sauce pan and kneadiog-trough.
Mr. Millson of Virginia,
State) did not think the condemnation of the
elave trade involved any reproach npon
slavery; on the contrary it rather justified it
and made it respectable. Mr. Millson held
that the President was obliged either to libe
rate them here, (which could not for a
moment be thought or,) or' hold them in
slavery (for which no precedent could be
found) or carry them back to Africa aocord
ing to law, as he did.
Mr. Case, of India**, contended that it
was whslly inconsistent to undertake the ed
ucation of negroes abroad, while wo had
manylaws making itcrimindl to do so at home.
"Moreover," continued Mr.. C., "'this educa
"<lon of free negroes and teaching them the
"arts of civilization, seems to he at war with
" that eentiment which we «•'. told has come
" down to ns from rHVolutiouary times, de-
M coring that 4 the negro has no rights that
44 the white man is bonud tc support •' or
" which was more forcibly expressed by a'dis
" tiaguished Northern Senator, when be told
the citizens of Memphis that only as be
" tween crocodiles and negroes could the lat
" ter claim his preferfence! a. nartTiumi
" which, I. thank God, was uttered by no
. " Southerner."
Mr. Kcitt, ofSouth Carolina, noted' for his
assaults on the American Eagle, gave way to
Ihe. utmost enmity against that useful hen.
Said Mr.Kcitt:
hoar wheu the question
a;id tbe policy 01 parties,
«Uiod aside md lei deetbj Uk. fu fc
the mm time, 1 woold eweeo (ram
hook ereiy interference itrmld
r^the tawdectarieg »h..
I would withdraw onr aire tqradron
coast of Africa; and 1 would leave slavery unin
tervened against, wherever the power of the
conntry stretches." »
Mr. Seward, of Georgia, came next with
the following amendment, which bo fought
for with gTe&t animosity, but whioh waa Anal
ly stifled; (
ProtuUd further, That all laws heretofore
passed, prohibiting the slave trade, be, and the '
eama are hereby repealed. And that tbe policy 1
of restricting the foreign slave trade, be lett 1
with eech of the States, as affecting their own ,
local policy. j
Mr. Seward desired the slave-trade question .
to be left to the Slates themselves as a " do- j
mestic institution/' lie did not know that {
hie own State would care about taking a hand ,
in, Irat be thought quite likely Texas would, 1
and he was for giving Texas the privilege.
Mr. Barksdale of Mississippi thought the <
difcaiaiou ill-timed, but ho fully endorsed the
eloquent remarks of tbe gentleman from |
Georgia.
The most energetic harangue, however,
and quite the mo<t logical, came from
Mr. Miles of South Carolina, near the close
of the debate. We extract tbe following:
•'lt U impossible to escape theSnevitableJtojric—
the logic which the senior member from Ohio,
[Mr. Giddli'gsJ 1 believe, U:es; if the slave
trade be now piracy, it always was piracy; if
tbe slave trade be now a crime agaiust mor
ality and religion, it always was; and the
pirates that you would bang to-day,
stand on the fame footing with my fore
fathers, who employed and encouraged their
predecessors. I will never consent, if I can
possibly help it, to allow this stigma to remain,
which degrades and puts a slur upon tbe people
of my part of the Confederacy. I believe, Mr.
Chairman, that these are questions that ought to
be left, as gentlemen have said, to time; and to
be controlled, moreover, by the sovereign States
themselves. I have grave and seriouß doubts
about the constitutionality of the laws lor tbe eup
prcasion of the t-lave trade. I have very grave
and serious doubU whether the cenrtitutional
power " to define and punish piracy" given Con
gress the light to say that anything else shall be
piracy than what the laws oi nations had previ
ously nude so."
The debate finally came to a olose, and the
Committee rejected Mr. tiugleton's amend
ment by ayes 34, o»es 91. He must have a
blindness beyond the treatment of hospital or
a.-ylum, who sees no design ou the part of the
African Democracy to revive tbe trade in
black men between the Bight of Benin and
plantations of America.
Sant St* Mary Canals Repairs Needed*
Tbe Board ot Control of the above Canal,
in response to a resolution of inquiry by the
Michigan Legislature, have sent in a communi
cation from which we obtain the following in
teresting facts:
About one thousand feet of the Canal, directly
above tbe upper lock, is in imminent danger ot
being washed away by a sadden rise of water*
The banks at this place are composed of loose
sand, and elevated only four or five feet above
an ordinary stage of water. Should the water
at any time break over the top of the embank
ment at this point, the entire embankment, for a
distance of nearly a thousand feet, would be
liable to be swept into tbe river. The water of
Lake Superior at iis outlet, without any appar
ent cause, frequently rises to a height of from
three to five feet in tbe spaceof hour, and
as suddenly subsides; and, as the water from its
sudden rise washes into the Canal, there is great
danger of its overflowing the embankment di
rectly above the upper lock. Upon several oc
casions of this phenomenon, the water has risen
to within a few inches of tbe top of tbe embank
ment. The frost of winter also has a tendency
to iocrease tbe danger. It penetrates the em
bankment to the depth of from five to seven
feet, and as it disappears in the spring leaves it
in a poor condition to withstand the pressure.
The Bourd recommend the following improve
ments:
In order thoroughly to protect the work against
all contingencies, the undersigned are of the
opinion thut a substantial wall should be built
upon either hide cf the canal, slong the entire
tlisiecce above mentioned, commencing at the
tipper lock. This wall should be built upon the
ouiside ot tbe embankmeet, and resting upon
tbe solid rock that underlies tbe canal, ana cf
sufficient strength and height to confine the
water, under all circumstances, within the ca
nal. Such a wall should be built of rough
stone, ana by building it upon the outer side of
, the canal would not in tbe least retard tbe navi
gation. We are also of tbe opinion that guard
locks should be built a short distance above the
upper lock, so as to more effectually secure on
interrupted nbvi^ation.
Tbere are other improvements that it would
be well to make, such as building an open pier
at the upper end of the canal, and removing a
crib of stone now sunk near the east end. The
1 former Superintendent, John Burt, Esq, who
is a practical engineer, and familiar with »uch
> work, has, at ourreouest, furnished us with an
[ estimate of the expense of the m&uy improve
> menta necessa:y to be made upon said canul,
1 with a view of efiectually securing the same
1 against all accidents, and at the same time fecil
-1 itatingthe navigation.
The estimates of Mr. Burt are aB follows:
For the proposed wall $34,000; for open pier at
head of canal $20,120; for guard-gates £39,-
COO; for removing crib of timber and stoce
from front of entranoe to lower lock of cana' f 1-,
t 500—in all $95,220. To meat this expense there
, is in the hands of tbe Superintendent belonging
> to the canal fund $i0,153 -being the excess of
P tolls over expenses since the opening of the
canaL For raising the deficiency. Gov. Wisner !
' recommends the issuing of seven per cent. 1
canal bonds, running twenty years, tbe State
being pledged for their final redemption. It is
' his opinion that the tolls on the canal according
- to the present tariff will be amply sufficient to
meet the bonds at maturity.
£ Tbe legislature has not acted apon these sug
gestions. It is to be hoped that t e magnitude
of the interests involved will lead to prompt
and adequate measures for the preservation of
[ this very important work.
J Mortality ia flew York City.
t> The population of New York city is about 700,-
000, and, though no sweeping epidemic prevailed
3 there the past year, tbe total of deaths reached
tbe very large number of 24,492, which is one
death in every 29 of the population. Among
I the deaths were nearly 15.000 children. Of this
army of dead children, 1,055 died of infantile
convulsions, and 1,503 of cholera infantum - the
total mortulity frcm tbe two diseases number
ing S.ISS, or about one eighth of all tbe deaths
* during the year. Tbe most fatal of diseases
was consumption, which alone swept off some
1 8,194 victims. There were 45 cases of murder,
* or killing, which is a little less than one marder
8 a week. Tbe whole mortality of 1553 shows an
increase ot 1,259 deaths over 1857.
1 The New Senate Cnamber*
« Already fault is found with tbe new United

OUR SPBISGFIELD COREESPONDESCE.
The Itcompton Charter—Democrat* tick of th*
Swindle Legislative Apportionmerit u'rou
Partisan Unfairnttt. 1
SmxomiD, Jan. 29.15®. 1
All aides agree that the New Charter is a dead <
cock in the pit. The decided action of the Re
publican members of the House has had its
salutary effect. It is seen that the iniquity can- ]
not be consummated without a straggle which ,
will imperil the success of every other measure
before the Legislature, perhaps without break*
ing up the session in a general row. The game
is not worth the candle, say the rural Democra
cy who have their own locations to look out for, i
and who do not care to hazard their reputations
at home, and destroy their usefulness here, for 1
the doubtful obance of making Bridgeport and
Holstein component parta of Chicago. More i
than this, the Chicago outsiders have qnarelled
among themselves. These fends are prndently
veiled from the knowledge of the pnblie; but
enough is known of their dissensions to make it
certain that they cannet hereafter agree. The
cause of the rapture is prndently kept in the
dark; bnt that they have bad a blow-up in
which strong language and fierce threats were
freely used, there can be no doubt. Sherman
and Company have left the field for home;
Dyer is nursng his shin-bones; Sheahan, after
& flying visit, is preparing to throw up his hand;
and on Monday, when the bill comes back to
the House, Nat. Allen, Col. E. D. Taylor and
S. S. Hayes will be the only engineers left to
pnt it through. The opinion is now expressed
that it will be quietly laid on the table, where it
will repose undisturbed. I shall bespeak a
copy for the Historical Society.
Two Apportionment bills have been drawn—
one by the Democrats and the other by the Re
publicans, though the first-named only has been
presented to the House. By it, the nnmber of
Representatives is increased to eighty, as is
provided in the Constitution. Of these, Chicago
has six members oi the House, and two Sena
tors. I send you a copy of the bill; as yoar
readers outside of Cook County may be glad to
see the new combinations which the Democracy
have made for their benefit. By a compromise,
the bill was brought in last evening, read twice,
and referred. The Republican bill will take the
same course, and the whole subject involved is
made the special order for Wednesday next.
Great ingenuity has been displayed, and gross
unfairness in the divisions which the Democracy
have made for the presetvation of their power.
The counties of Coles, Edgar, Clark and Cum
land are made into one district, with three Re
presentatives. The reason is obvious: Coles
and Edgar are Republican, and if combined, or
each made into a separate district, would send
two Republican members. Add Clark and
Cumberland to them, and the result is changed.
The large Democratic vole in the latter wil*
work the virtnal disfranchisement of the former.
So the XXXIII: Champaign, Piatt, Dewitt—
all Republican —are coupled with Moultrie,
Sheltrf and Eflingham, and the six send three
Representatives. So of Wabash, Edwards and
White. Fearing that they may be carried for
the Republican ticket, Wayne is hitched on as a
Democratic make-weight, and the result will be
two Democratic members. Look at St. Clair,
one of the moat populous counties in Illinois.
She has two Rspresentatives here now, both,
thanks to German love of Freedom 1 Republi
cans. In this bill, she is hitched to Monroe
and Washington-both largely Democratic. St.
Clair is overslaughed —disfranchised. Ran
dolph and Perry are shaky in their faith to
this modern Democracy. They are tied to
Jackson, to keep them steady, and the Repre
sentatives of the district will be Democratic to
all time.
Sangamon Connty is mide into a district with
Christian. Under any fair arrangement,
Sangamon shonld constitute a- district of itself,
and by the ratio adopted, would bs entitled to
two Representatives. Christian is entitled
to one. But Sangamon is debateable ground;
Christian iB largely Democratic. The two are
coupled, and three Democrats will profit there
by. The St. Clair Representative and Senato
rial districts occupy the same area—three conn
tics. It cannot be that the Constitution con
templated any divisions like these, it was
probably the policy of the framers of that in
strument to make donble districts legal only
when their erection could not be avoided. But
the growth of the Republican party will set the
calculations of the Democracy at defianee. Un
der any bill that they can constitutionally con
trive, the next Legislature must inevitably fall
into the hands of the "Republican party.
The Yonng Men's Christian Associa
tion of Chicago*
Editors Press asd Tribune:
It is a little singular that, while your paper,
as well as others in the city, is eager to report
to your readers everything of interest trans
piring in our midst, whether judicial, political,
or religious, all have seemed to overlook the
operations of one of our most beneficent enter
prises. I refer to the Young Merit Chrittian
Association.
This organization, now about six months old,
has been mvving along quietly, attracting very
little of popular attention—nevertheless, as I
believe, doing a noble work, and wielding a
salutary influence over many of the young men
of our city. They have fitted up two large
rooms very pleasantly and tastefully in Jonts
k Lloyd's Block, at No. 205 Randolph street,
which are thrown open daily (Sundays excepted)
to visitors, from the hour of 8 in the morning
until 10 at night. Io the large room are to be
fouod, for the free use of those resorting there,
the leading newspapers, both political and re
ligions, of the principal cities ot the Union, all
properly atranged on files convenient for the
uee of the reader. Also, lying upon their spa
cious tables, numerous secular and religious
Fieriodicals published in our own and foreign
ands; and besides these, thtre has been already
selected the uucleus of a well selected religipus
library, numberi g about 125 volumes. So that,
\ on the whole, there is presented in this room,
to the young men of our city, wbo have their
evenings to themeelves, and w bo may be m9re
or less at leisure'during the day, attractions
not inferior to those found in other cities like
this: pleasant rooms, well lighted and warmed,
a large and varied amount of valuable reading
mutter, all free of expense to the visitor. One
or more of the members of the Association are
in constont attendance to welcome visitors,
whether our own citizens or strangers, to the
rooms, and impart to them such isformation
concerning the Associationitind the various
churches and religious interests of our city, as
may be within the knowledgeof the Association.
There are now about three hundred young
men belonging to this organization, represent
ing the various evangelical denominations of bur
city, of whom there are:
Pre«bjlerlac« 1(0
Baptists
> MttticdkU
Eulicopailioa
Keormed Datch.... 5
1 Easlkh Lutheran 3
and others whose respective denominations
bare not yet been entered upon the Kegister.
Besides these, many have joined tbe Associa
tion under the head of associate and life mem
bership* good moral character, election by a
majority ot tbe Association, cnTnfl initiation
fee ot two dollars, constituting an associate
member, and thirty dollars a life member.
Many of our citizens have manifested an inter
est in the Association by contributing to its
treasury, without otherwise connecting them
selves with it-of whom an estimable citizen on
South Water street has subscribed and paid in
one hundred dollars.
The Union Prayer meeting, held every day
(Sundays excepted) from twelve to one o'clock,
noon, at the prayer meetiog room of tbe As»o
--' ciatioo, is under the auspices of this organise
tion, and a prayer meeting for young men ia
also held at tbe same place erery Saturday eve
ning, conceded by all who be one of
the most interesUngreligiouffJ u v BOW t e ld
in the citv. Besides these tfl£*£Kfociation has
organized prayer meetings in two of the Fire
men aod Engine houses; ooe held at No. 5.
West Jackaon street, every Tuesday evening
and one at No. 8, oorcer of Wells and Kiuzie
streets, every Thursday evening. The public
1 are cordially invited to these meetings
Tne Association have had a course of Monday
< evening.lectures, (wjich is «4iU in progress) dt>
' livered semi-monthly, principally by the clergy,
men of our city, which, though thus tar,
> meagrely attended, owing to the extremely in
i clement weather that has prevailed almost every
I Monday evening during the autumn and eafly
winter, were of an exceedingly high order, both
in style and matter. The gentlemen who
> have tbna far kindly responded to tbe invita
tions of the Association io this behalf are Rev.
Dr. Rice of tbe North Presbj'teriau, Rev. Drl
- Howard of the First Baptist, Rev. Mr Banmaof
, the Methodis, Rev. Dr. Patterson of tbe Second
t Presbyterian, aod Rev. J. M. Ferris of the Re
formed Dutch. j .
Oa the 7th proximo the Association intend
having a or Tea Party at their ro ms,
1 in which all the members, and such other young
1 men members of onr various churches and con
-1 gregations, as the Association shall invite, to
( gether with their lady iriends, are expected to
participate. The Committee of Arrangements
• are pUnniog this affair upon a most delightful
scale; and it promises to be one of the most
agreeable occasions ot the season. Tbe princi
j pal object ot it is tor tbe mutual introduction
I ■ ar-d acquaintance oftbe members and friends ot
tbe Atiociation.
! In the sprin. tbe Association contemplate
taking rooms in tbe nefr .:iodist church

when they expect to start witt. .. newed energy
in their various fields cf oli .i ian labor anil

Important Railroad Convention—-A
Mew Tarifl Scheme, Ac*
[Special Dispatch to the New York Timed ]
Washi9QTo9. Jan. 23.
The Railroad Convention of the four great
lines from the seaboard to the West, now in ses
sion here, does not get along very smoothly.
The chief points in dispute are the advantage
to Baltimore growing out of the Baltimore and !
Ohio Railroad's course of redeeming fof that I
place, and the violation of the St. Nicholas j
tel agreement by the New York roads. The Erie
road is charged with a violation of the eleventh
article, by allowing drawbacks on freight
through the BuflaloA Hornellsville road, and
the Central is charged with a violation of arti
cle tiftb, in securing freight by allowing the dray
age charges to and from the Hudson River Rai!*
road depot in New York city-
Mr. Garrett, of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, moves a resolution that these articles bs
rigidly adhered to, and declares, as an alterna
tive, that his road will withdraw.
The discussion on this became so animated and
personal that the meeting to-day was broken up,
and adjourned until to bight. They are now in
session again.
Corning and the Central are backed by Dean
Richmond, Superintendent Hibb&fd, and seve
ral of the ablest Directors.
Some of the knowing ones declare that while
the New York roads seem disposed to maintain
the agreement now, they will abandon it when
their lake connections open in the spring.
Col. Forney on the Next Presidency*
[From the Philadelphia Press, Jan. 23 ]
There are two classes of politicians, of mere
partisans, in our happy country, who are con
stantly distressing themselves about "the next
Presidency." This same thing of "the next
Presidency o intoxicates more weak ambitions
and addles more dilated brains than the thirst
1 for gold itselt. The present phase of the disease
(for such it deserves to be called) is the anxiety
o f certain newspaper prophets on the subject.
They are as necjous as if each one had, in his
own bands, the disposition and the eolation of
1 the great secret, wbo will be the next President?
They are extremely enrions, for instance, to
( know what coarse the Democrats will take who
agree with the Prut. If we know these Demo
crats, we think we can say that they are the fol
-1 lowers of no especial candidate. * * * *
Looking over the political field, it is amusing
to see fa ere and there a party brigade fighting
1 under the little flag uf some liflfr leader; and
it will be a no less interesting Hgnt to see these
contending factions overwhelmed by the great >
wave of pnblie opinion which is now organizing
1 itself opon principle, indifferent for the time
1 being to the man who shall be the instrument
1 and the embodiment of that principle. In the
i confusion of tongues that prevails at Washing
> ton on every mooted issue, and especially in re
-1 gard to the heresies whieb the present Admin
-1 titration would erect Into the gospel of our
faith, we recognize an example which teaches
' us the virtue ot that celebrated phrase ot Mr.
1 Calhoun, the virtue of "masterly inactivity."
1 Nut, indeed, that we should be inactive in oh
-1 servation; we advise the most vigorous vigi
lance ; but that we shall atoid those prepara
tions which come after the creed is ascertained,
aud which relate merely to the 'selection ot one
or two mortal men, who will perish when t&at
creed shall survive "amid the wreck of matter
and the crash of worlds." We do not belong to
the party of Antony nor to-the party of Cssar -
we are tor Rome. If the inquiries of the pres
ent Administration are to De woven into the
framework of the Democratic party, we would
1 not wish ur worst enemy, much less onr best
friend, to stand upon the scaffold that would be
held together t>y such bonds as these.
It will require the efforts of all patriotic men,
> of every party, to rescue the ship of State from
1 the tempest that bowls aronnd it, and to save
1 her from the breakers upon which she is Tush
ing without helmsman or captain. When doc
trines against which the whole history of the
conntry, not only of the Democratic, but of
every party, is a living orotest doctrines dis
carded by the fathers oi the Republic, and doc
trines repudiated by every organization that baa
aspired to popular confidence, and boldly assert
ed and made tests upon the people, itis no time
to think ot men—it is time to think of the meana
of deliverance from impending evil.

The Cold Terms or 1810 and 185 T.
Sir. E. Merlon of Brooklyn Hlghts, gives tbe
following mformatioa in answer to a correspond
ent from Clarcmont, N. H., respecting tho 44 C01d
Friday" of January, 1810, as compared with the
same cold weather in 1657. Hr. Meriam Eaja:
In tho last half of tbe month of January, 1810, '
1 was at a place called Med way. on tbe Green *
Mountain*, Vermont The cold Friday was the
19th of January of tbat year. Oa tbe 18th, tbe
weather wta not unnsaally cold, but daring tbe J
night a violent wind came from tbe north-west, a
accompanied by intense cold, and tbe temperature «
fell to 57 deg. below zero. The forest trees split .
. and cracked throughout the nights of tbe 11th 1
and 19lh, with detonations like tbe ccntint&s
discharge of volleys or musketry. Bo great was 1
the noise, that our party e-uld not sleep. About
midnight a tremenduouj explosion was beard and
felt, which we subsequently found to have been ]
tbe cracuug of tbe thick ice of a large pond-* .
the opening was six Inches wide and half a mile
long. Tbe bnow in the mountains was very deep 1
at the time.
In tbe City of New York rain fell most of the ,
days of Tuesday, tbe lGth, and Wednesday, the
17th of January, 1810. i
In the morning of the 18th, wind was S.W.; at i
2 P. M. 8., and then came round to the N. W, and
blew a gale in the night of 18-19, and at fu arise
of the 19th, the temperature fell to zero, and did
not rise above 8 deg. during the day. Saturday
morning, at 8 o'clock, the temperature 5 deg.
above zero. Sunday A. IL, same hour, only 2
deg. above, and Monday morning 6 deg. above at
8 AM. The temperature did not rise above the
freezing point till the 21th, when it was 34 deg.
above zero. '
Tbe cold ih January, 1857, was intense, and of
long continuance. Between the hours of 4 and 5
P.M., of December 30,1856, the temperature at
anv place of observation'on Brooklyn Higbts fell
below the freez-ng point, and continued below
that line until tbe 27tb of January, 1857, when it
rose above that line and to 39 deg. accompanied
by rain. On the 23d of January tbe temperature
here fell to 5 deg. below zero.
At Franconia, N. H.,on the 24th it fell to 49
deg. below zero; at Bath and Lisbon, N. H., to 52
deg. below zero; at Montpelier, Vt,to 60 deg.
below zero—lowest line marked oa tbe scale of tbe
spirit thennometers—and at a town in NewHamp*
sbire, near the Connecticut River, above Su Johns*
bury, tbe temperature jell to CO deg. below zero.
Tbe mercury thermometers were congealed in
almost all the'places Among the mountains bor
dering the Connecticut' Biver Valley—freezing at
39 deg to 40 deg. below zero.
Lynching—A. Negro Burned Alive—
Horrible Allair.
The following account of the burning of a ne
gro at the stake by a mob, for the murder of
his master, is given by a correspondent of the
Maysville Eagle. It took place at Troy, Ken*
tacky:
On New Years' day the annual negro sales
took place at Troy, tbe county eeat, and tbere
was quite a collection of people there ; every
thing went on smoothly until about 3 o'clock in
the evening, when Mr. James Calaway, a broth*
er*in-law ot the deceased, mounted upon an old
goods box before a store door, and addressed
'.be people for about fifteen minutes. He said if
the mass of tbe people felt as he did, and would
do tbeir dnty, which he believed they would,
that tbey would take the black murderer out of
jail and burn bim at the stake,| in the presence
of all the negroes that were there, to set an ex
ample for them, and show them what will be tbe
result of all such condact if tbere ehoaid ever
be such again. Then he closed by saying, "All
tbat feel as Ido will follow me." He then
leaped from tbe stand, and there was a general
shout given, and he led the way to the jail, and
nine-tenths of the multitude followed. Oo ar
riving at the jail they found tbe sherili and jail
or, who did all they could to suppress the mob,
but all to no purpose. They th6n commenced
with sledge hammers, crowbars and axes, and
in abont an hour entered the jail and brought
forward tbeir victim (tbe negro murderer.)
Tbey marched bim to tbe centre of tbe jail
yard. drove down a large stake and chained him
in an erect position, hand and feet faat to the
stake. There was an abundance ot shavings
and fine split wood piled aronnd bim -this con
sumed some half honr. Daring this time tbe
negro talked to the negroes that gathered ronnd
him. ne told them that he bad a good master,
and that he was always treated too well and giv
en toff many liberties, aod for ttiem to take
warning in time and never do as he bad done.
Then the torch upplied, and be aeemed to be
entirely indifferent About it until the flames' be
gan to burn as high aa his knees. Then be be
gan to twist and snort) aod groan, and in about
a minute more he commenced to scream. He
gave soae of the most hideous screams that I
evtr heard come from any human being. 1
conld not stana to see any more,- and left.
When 1 left, tbe flames were burning as high as
his bead. I waa only a spectator, took no band
either for or kgaiost. I think tbat there were
some 1,500 or 2,000 people to witness this
dreadful scenb, and 200 or 300 negroes.
Crime and Suicide in Prussia and
France.
The following is a compilation of the statistics
of crime and suicide, from official documents, iu
PrussiA and France, for the year 1553:
In 1855, the population of Prussia numbered
16 923.721 souU. During this year, 0,772 persons
were airested upon various criminal charges. Of
these,49 were condemned to death, and 427 to
various which the lightest sentence
wai five years' imprisonment at hard labor. An
anilysis of the above xhotvs that there was ooe
accused out of each 2,500 inhabitant*} one con
demned to death out of every 345.352, and one
sentenced to bard labor from every 3,962 of tbe
population.
1 The illegitimate births averaged ooe to each 307
inhabitants, and it is stated by the Vdksblalt, of
Ilalle, tbat in tbe city of Berlin alone, 856 divorces
were granted within the year.
Of euicide?) the average lor Berlin is slated to
be one for each 750 inhabitants.
The population of France, the same year, was
35.751,628 Fouls. Daring that year, 6,480 ]>erson3
were arrested, of whom 56 were condemned to
death; 5,760 to various penalties; or for each
1 038,957, one was condemned to death; for each
5,i21, one was accused; and one in each 6,212 was
sentenced to penalties other than death.
Ttic illegitimate births were as one for every
476 inhabitants, and divcrce is not legally permit
ted. In Paris, suicides were as one for every 2,700
inhabitant.
Thus it appears that the number of suicides
proportionately In Berlin, is four times as greatas
, tbat of Paris. Iu both countries the police regu
lations are very perfect.
Ilsavy Forged Checks Detected in New
i Orleans.
[From the New Orltam True Delta, Jan.2oJ
On Tuesday a forged check oa tbe Citizens' :
! Bank for SIO,OOO, purporting to have been <
drawn by a well known and wealthy commercial
firm in this city, and to have been endorsed bv
another commercial firm of high standing, was
' presented to Mr. Cammack, the paying teller,
for payment. Tbat lynx eyed bank cfficer in- !
atantly delected the forgery, and requested the ,
party presenting it to step into tbe cashier's
room, until a member of the firm whose same 1
waa to the check aa drawer -who waa sent for ,
—should arrive. On his arrival at tbe bank the
1 paying teller's decision as to the bogus nature of
' tbe check was, of coarse, confirmed. Yester
day another forged check of $1,500, and ooe of
' $3,000, purporting to be drawn and endorsed
by the same parties, were aUo presented to tbe
1 bank. It may be well to add tbat these checks
were negotiated in Louisville, and sect do*s.
here for collection by the commercial bouses in
that city, who bought them in good faith, but,
we think, with a great want of circumspection.
1 How many more of such checks may be afloat it
ia impossible to say. The fellow who could so
easily make a raiae in Louisville of 14,550, has
no doobt tried his hand at tbe eaxna profitable
game elsewhere.

—The Washington correspondent of the Louis
villc Courier, predicts that the K. N. Convention
which will assemble in Louisville 4? February
"will take bold, National, Sjuthern ground on the
subject of Territorial legislation against Slavery."
"Our Convention, '* says be, "committed a great
blunder in not making a better, sounder, and more
Dcunwratio platform. But we Dtmocrats of the
old school must remain in the party, and work in
it unul we got it right again. Our party permit

—ln his retume of Chess for 1853, Herr Loweu
thall has the following passage:
"la India, Mr. Green, still keeps Chess alive,
and if we may rely upon his judgment, tbere is
au Eastern as well as a Western prodigy. He bas
been pbyiug a series of games with a Brahmin,
named Rliumcbuuder Kurranchicer, who, Mr.
Green thinks, could give odds to any living play
er. Wc can hardly expect the Brahmin to visit
the West, or Mr. Morpby to journey to the East,
but il the iatter conquer* all the Occidentals who
venture to oppose bim, only one thing remains to
be desired, and tbat is, to S'.ethe East and We-t
pitted against each other.
—The correspondent of The United Stales Ga»
zette, writing from Wathlngton upon the subject
of the Tariff, says :
rbe*Republicans have held a caucus, and unani
mously agreed to vote for a modification of. the
Tariff. Their s'and is clear, positive and unquali
fied, as will be seen whenever the test shall be
made in the House. On the other hand, the Dem
ocrats in that body will hardly muster twenty
votes, including the Pennsylvania delegatiou.
1 This significant fact tell* the whole story, especi
ally when.connected with tbe position of the Dem*
' ocratic majority in tho Senate. Tbere is no diffi
| cully in knowing what political interests in Con
gress arc lor and against the policy oi' reasonable
protection."
—The Washington correspondent of the Eve
ning Post says:
"The Republican Senators and Representatives
of this Congress have opened a subscription pa
per, which was speedily filled up, tor the purpose
of raising between SSOO and &U0 to purchase a
magnificent service of plate, to be presented to
the venerable Joshua R. Gidding* as a testamonial
of tbeir appreciation of bis public labors in the
councils of tbe nation. Toese labors have extend
ed through twenty years. Several Democrats are

—Tbe succession to Judge Irwin's place is indi
cateJ'in the following passage from a Washington
letter to the Ph-.ladelphii Press:
"It is stated here tbat Ja<:ge Irwtn, the United
States Judge tor the Western District of Pennsyl
vania, now In course or luvestigatiun, will resign
his place, and that Auotney General Black will
al*o resign lira place in tbe present Cabioet, and
take that vaca ad by Judge Irwin. Judge Black
is tired oi bis position. It is really haul to bear.
He bai innumerable difficulties to meet. Tbe
President is a bard taskmaster. Be really allows
Biack no patronage. Every little office in
ourSta'e which of right oujbt to go to Black tbe
President monopolizes and disposes 01. If Mr.
Buchauan were a young man, and had ten thou
-1 ?and hopes for re election to the Presidency, be
1 could not be more exacting in regard to the dis
pensation of these little places. Judge Black bas
had no power to bestow, though many promises to
* fulfill."

that city, on Sunday last, on cnarge of assault
with intent to murder his unc!e. Mr. E. D. .

Nicholas is from Rhode Island, and haa been '
visiting bis uncle. It appears that he chastised
one ofliis uncle's children, for which Mr. Mick- '
ley very properly collared and shook him;
whereupon Nichols drew np a gun and ahot at
his uncle, Mr. M. The first shot not taking ef

time not going off. He was bound over to the

feet deep, for the purpose of getting a bucket,
while climbing down tbe stone wall bis weight
loosened the stonees, and tbe earth around be
ing soft«ned6y the late rains, tbe walla and all
caved in upon him. Tbe alarm was soon given,
and tbe neighbors commenced digging away the
mass ot eanh and rock, which was found to oe
nearly twenty feet deep above btm. On Satur
day morning he was taken out alive, althogh
much icjared. His body, half bent over, was
found pressed against tbe wall, tbe left arm on

short distance from its moutb, shortly after thia

struggled a loog time in vain effort to regain
the top of tbe ice, and finally sank. Whatadds
to the sadness of his death was the fact that
some men were at work not far off and heard
him hallooing, it is for more tban two
hours, but they supposed it was merely boys
playing on the ice and paid no attention to it.
His body was not recovered until the following
Wednesday, no uneasiness having beenieltat

Bridgs at Cuntox.—Some of our people on
Tuesday evening extemporized a small demon
stration in honor of tbe bridge victory. It was
gotten up on short notice, and without any pre
arranged programme. About eight o'clock a
magniticentbontire was built on the bead of tbe
Island, and a torch light procession marched
across the ice to tbe spot where, by tbe light of
tbe tire, tbe '* driver "was at work " sending
home" the piles tor the first pier. Fire balls
amused tbe more juvenile portion of the crowd,
while their parabolas of light defined against
a moonless sky, add edbeaoty to tbe scene. Ev
ery one seemed in bigb spirits, bud ready to
swell the repeated and prolonged cheers, which
rent tbe air continually, until tbe huge pyramid
of combustibles was nearly consumed. When
the crowd returned they were gathered before
tbe lowa Central House, tbe front of which was
illuminated, and were addressed by several
gentlemen who responded to the calls made
upon them.— Clinton {lowa) Herald, 29fA.
