With a basis of eighty members, the ratio Is 16,332 inhabitants to each representative. By this ratio the Republican counties are entitled to 39 members, the Democratic counties to 30 members; and the close and doubtful coun ties to 11 members. But instead of 30 members to which tlie Democratic counties are entitled, the Appor tionment bill is so framed as to give them 41 members, and the Republican counties only 33. Indeed, by conceding to the plotters the 60uth district of .Coolc County, which they think they can carry under their gerryman der, the Republican districts only get 30 members, while the Democratic districts get 44, leaviug districts electing six members in the " close" list. The bill is so framed that should the Re publicans carry all of the twelve close coun ties named in the table, and all of their own counties, they would only elect 39 members, while the Democracy would have 41 seats in the House! The Republican counties contain....OiMSpeop'c.

This is called, carrying out the pure princi ples of * 4 Popular Sovereignty," of giving ! every white man an equal weight in State leg islation, and of respecting. the voice of the people. When tbe Republican members talk of effi ciently opposing this monstrous outrage upon popular rights, they are denounced as revolu tionary. If they possess tbe power to defeat this infamous scheme, and fail to exercise that power, they will be held responsible by their constituents. Let this swindle be de feated at all hazird*, anil tho*conscquenees will take care of themselves. The Financial strife at. Washington. The general government is at a dead lock •vcr the question of Ways and Means for shouldering itself through another twelve month. The Secretary of the Treasury is at a dead lock with the President} the Northern Democracy are at u dead loek with the South ern Dcmooracy; the Committees of both Houses arc a dead lock; the Republicans are braced square against the Democratic cau cus; and all parties and people arc waiting to see where the timbers will break. The strain comes heaviest on tbe Pennsylvania Democrats and their scattering allies who have stood out against the caucus decision of their party, and as we Lave no doubt there will be a smash somewhere before the ad journment, whereby the South will carry her points without yielding aa inch on the tariff, we look confidently to see it come in the very "Keyetonc" of the federal arch. But three weeks remain to settle the question, and in that time, what cannot be done in the way of bullyiug and excommunicating, will, undoubtedly be accomplished by parliament ary address in staving off aoy change in the revenue system till the hour when the XXXVth Congrcs shall cease to be. On its naked merits the case etands thus: The receipts into the treasury'from legitimate sources are some forty millions per annum below the expenses as footed up by those lo whom the nation has entrusted the Sixty millions have been added to the nation al debt since those eminentfinanciers, Buchan an, Cobb (author ot several "new stories,") Floyd (tbe successful peddlar of military res ervations) andToucey (the celebrated ectno mist in ship stores and marine engines) took ; tbe national funds and national affairs in i their wise keeping. Yet there is no money | left to go on with, and Congress is thrown upon the expedients of goiog still deeper in debt, or makinc a few 'modifications of the tariff to fill the treasury, clear off the debt aiifl go on with a clean balance sheet. In addition to those reaions whfch would impel a private citizen to adopt the latter, tbe manufacturing interests of the country, but especially tbe operators and ar tizans in iron, arc suffering beyond anything known lor years, for the incidental protection which would be afforded by the specific duties proposed by the Republicans and Northern Democrats in Congress. * Which -course, we ask evety iatelligeot citizen, is the one to be pursued by a sagaciom body of badness men! Clearly that which at the same time brings bona Jide cash into tbe treasury, and relieves an important branch of national in dustry. The course of the TlUnois Democracy on these questions is a little peculiar, and seems to have been dictated tyy Mr. D&oglas witi a view of regaining his lost position , among the alave drivers. The action of the-Demo •ratic delegation .from UinStale in-separatiag themselves from the majority of their paity i& the North and supporting Cobb's treasury policy throughout, may be taken as a vote of confidence in the Charleston Convention.

A curious fact in relation to the stolen checks passed off upon the Fond Commissioner's office, _hasJo«U)een developed. One hundred and eight of tbem aie of one date and issue, of the denomina tion of SIOO <cach. Of these, runriy-nme or* marifc td with ccmxecu&ti imitbert; commencing, say, with No. 300 and reaching m regular order to 399. . This Tact is deemed important by the Committee as chawing that the packages in which they were -si»dc op by the Secretary of the Canal Board, when he -checked them off on his register were never disturbed untQ they went into the Fond Commissioner's hand Cor redemption. That being established, the idea that they were ever in circu lation alter their abstraction from the boxes in which they were packed byMcßoberts and Kehoe in Chicago, in Hay, 1853, is rendered highly im probable. It is now fonnd that there are $3,000 of the checks which bear on their backs special endorse ments to William H. Crown, Cashier, without re endorsement to any other party. These have been paid by the Boat d; bnt after payment could, not hare been pot into circulation again, because without that re-endorsement they were not nego tiable. The purchaser of such paper was cer tainly very careless of hi* dollars. The Committee are somewhat embarrassed in Jiieir action by -tbo absence of Mr. ilcEoberta, late State Trustee, who left home for Washing* ton a day or two after this fraud was discovered. No one accuses him of complicity In the affair; nut there is a general expression of regret that be is not here to add his testimony to that of the other witnesses. Ee has been summoned by tele , graph, but it is feared that the despatch will noi reach him, and that his account of the sending of the boxes to Springfield, his recollections of their contents and of the authority by frhlch he acted in surrendering such an important part of his trust, will not be heard until after the Com mittee report, Mr. McEoberts is universally e?. teemed; his integrity being without Impeachment. If be knew what was going on here, he would hasten back to goard his own reputation from harm. Gen. Thorntoo, Gen. Fiy, Col. Archer, and Col. McClemand, all old Commissioners are .here, as are Mr. Manning, the Secretary of the Board, and Mr. Bay the State Trustee now in office. Mr. McEoberts, Bay's predecessor, would make the party complete. The other Trustees and Commissioners are dead. I wrote you yesterday that a certain amount of the back interest on the funded checks was paid in interest-certificates. Farther examina tion of the books in the Governor's office, shows that these certificates have all been fund ed under the act of-1857, and non interest pay ing bonds issued in lieu thereof These bonds have all been purchased by the Governor, under the law empowering him to buy State indebted ness out of the proceeds ot certain funds. As they do not bear interest until 1660, they were bought in at 97 cents—s97o for each SI,OOO band. The amount so purchased is $91,241.50, for which ex Governor Matteson received the . gold I .It was hoped that the payment of these bonds could be stopped; bnt, to use a slang ex pression, they are " past redemption 1" This makes the sum, in gold, already paid on this transaction, $115,615.50. This, in addition to $107,000 in Illinois 6 per cents, is quite a res pectable fortune, even in these days. The business of the Benate lags unaccount ably. The Democratic leaders of* that body seem determined that nothing shall be done until their purposes are accomplished—that they will hold back bills in which Bepublicans of the North are specially interested, until their party schemes are suffered to go ahead. In compliance with this purpose, the Chairman of the Committee on Engrossed Bills has neglect ed to report qack the large accumulation of bills in his hands. Yesterday a movement was made to compel him under instructions to act j and to-dsy the effort was renewed. Hon. Mr. Bryan, of Marion, heretofore thought to be a fair man, justified his inaction by a line ot argu ment which every Republican was surprised to hear him hold. But he was sustained by the solid vote of his party, and though powerfully pressed by Blodgett, of Lake, who originated it, the movement failed. The entire morning was spent in the squabble, which was not un profitable, as it fixed the responsibility of the delay where it properly belongs. This afternoon, bills on their second reading were in order, and among them one of great locel, and the other of general importance were reached. I refer to the bill creating the town of Sonth-Weßt Chicago, and the bill declaring that the Illinois Central Railroad shall pay to the State out of its gross earnings, seven per cent, no lessand no more! Both were referred, ttu first on motion ot Mr. Jndd, to the Judi ciary Committee, and the latter to Committee on Banks and Corporations. The Chicago bill will be passed probably in spite of all the resist ance that can be made. What fate is reserved for the Bailroad project, only a necromancer could guess. In the House, the morning session was spent in a wrangle over the proposition to make llli nois stock-secured bank notes receivable for taxes. The bill is on its third reading; and at the hour of adjournment, no vote had been bad. Mr. Greene, of Massac, has the floor. This afternoon, an appropriation bill for the Deaf and Damb Asylum and Institution for the Blind, at Jacksonville, after various unimpor tant amendments, was passed. The amount ap propriated for two years snpport of these, is $31,000. On motion of Davis, of Montgomery, the Vote on the Penitentiary bill was reconsidered, and the bill was made the special order for to mor row at 4 o'clock. This was followed by an at tempt to reconsider the vote by which the bill remitting the collection of the two-mills tax was defeated yesterday; but the mover failed, and that bill may be acoounted dead ! The tax payers who feel themselves oppressed by *>»■ onerous and unnecessary burden, are compelled yet awhile to carry the load. This is to be re gretted; but as the opponents of this, one of the most important measures of the session, are doubtless actuated by the best of motives, it is not for us to complain. ' After the passage of a few unimportant bills, a fight arose over a bill in relation to the pub lication of notice of Sheriff sales, and the act authorixing such pnblicstion was, so far as the action of the House can effect it, repealed! Political Resolutions in the Legisla ture. Since Martin's Democratic resolutions were voted down in the Democratic Senate, all ex planation of those resolutions are important Parks, of Will Co., a talented and useful Sen ator, but an incorrigible Black Republican, offered the following as his idea of Martin's " tiuc intent and meaning but they were I not adopted. They are as true as the/ are I biting: # As the true intent and mesning of the foregoing resolution, indorsing the Dred Scott decision, that, by the theory of our na tional government, its powers essentially and ultimately reside in sine gentlemen of talent, respectability and worth, composing the So- Sreme Court, not appointed by nor responsiole to the people, and holding their offices during life; that these gentlemen, or a majority ot them, are by the federal constitution recognized as the proper authority to prescribe rules of legislation and lines of national policy to Con gress, and to settle and determine issnes be tween the great political parties of the country* and that when any fiTe of these gentlemen agree upon and annouooe their opinions upon any matter of party or sectional controversy the menu or demerits of such opinion are not legitimate topics for further criticism or pablic discussion, and it is revolutionary for any citi sen or party to act upon the presumption that it will ever be reversed, or to straggle through any of the usual modes of political action to ac complish that result. Uttolvtd, That we utterly repudiate the distinc. tion sought to be set up and maintained between different parts of the Dred Scott decision, assign ing to one the character of bindiog judicial auihor lty, and to others the distinction ot obiUr dicta, or mce expressions of tbe individual eentimeuts of the judg» b upon points not essential to the ndjudi „?n °» cause; that we recognise and adopt all the tiews in naid opinion, as well as those per suing to tbe decision of the cue at law, as those designed to settle the issue between tbe political parties of the day; and that we especially an. prove that part of the opinion by which it Is de monstrated that Congress and the Territorial Legislature alike have no constitutional authority to exclude slavery from the Territories of tKe Uojon—an old and well established doctrine or the Democracy of Illinois under the eloquent and con sent teachings of their gallant leader, Stephen A. Douglas. ' r The following, offered by Davis, or Mont gomery, In the House, is au emphatic re affirmation of the " unfriendly legislation" doctrine, which he as well as Mr. Douglas may some day be anxious to repudiate: * Uttolvtd, That all territory owned by the United States is the common property of all the States and the citizens of each State have tbe right to' emigrate to any such territory or territories, snd their property become street to, and must de pend upon, tbe local laws oi such territory or ter ritories for its protection. -rThatfew York Tribn*says that William 'Wells Brown, a colored dramatist, aad an aa*. grateful fugitive from slavery, is meeting with peat success in tbe western part of that State in publicly reading dramas of his own compoci tion.

What Is the best grass for a large ; lawn; also to seed down a permanent pasture 7 | "AreysbesßndJlmenTa&y-valae fara&p-Ofcsging? | 1 on get any quantity of offal from the slaughter house; are they of aoy valoe and how shall 1 use tbem? An early answer will much oblige au old friend. Respectfully yours, . J. As these questions' are of almost every day oc currence, 'we will answer them in a public way. First cf -. . . GEXFS FOE TEX LAWK. Oar Agricultural and Hortlcultorel- jooraals have said much on this head and have recom mended an infinite variety of mixtures, which - bare only served to perplex and disappoint the planter. In the first place these see as are not to be had except through Eastern seedsmen who im portthem from abroad. But we have here in great abundance one of the best grasses in the world for this purpose, and that is the "Blue Grass" of onr prairies. It furnishes a carpet soft as can be desired, even, perennial, green and com pact in growth, and were we to mix anything with it, it would be our common White Clover, from which the bee would take up stores of the purest honey. The ground should be deeply | plowed, at least a foot deep, and if partially shaded, as a lawn should be, the Blae Grass will be none the won* for it. There is no mystery about this sort of lawn, at .least in the making, but a deal of mystery in those sown with foreign seeds, not only in jthe want of germination bat subsequent beauty. OBASS FOB PZB3CAKENT FASTU&E. Experience is said to be a wise teacher, and if we tftfrp this for our guide, We shall find, in Central Illinois at least, that Blue Grass has proved the most valuable for permanent pasture. But when a system of rotation with grain is de. sired, Clover aod Hurds Grass will prove valuable. Col. G. N. Brown of Sangamon County, is now wintering six hundred head of cattle on Bine Grass. This grass was allowed to grow up in the autumn and now presents a valuable winter feed of succulent green grass. There is no other varie ty of grass that can fill tbe place of Blue Grass for permanent pasture and where winter feed Is re quired. This grass' likes shade and so do the stock that feed upon it. Capt. B. has already planted many acres of locust and other trees not only in groves but in belts and scattered over his vast lawns of perennial verdure. AEBE3 A2CD LIKE. Ashes is a valuable manure for all grass lands, as well as lime, bat experience has not yet fixed the value to Hn»> for onr prairie soils, but it is otherwise with ashes; these should not be w&sted but spread upon the meadow or pasture lands. OFFAL FBOH SLAUGHTER* BOU6EB. It is a matter of surprise that this valuable manure should have been so long neglected. For meadow and pasture land, this is one of the most valuable, the blood is rich in elements of vegetable growth, and a few loads of it on a lawn would show a magical effect. We will point to a case of the use of OCCII manure near Chicago. Mr. C. Beers had several hundred acres of prairie land on the South Branch, south of Bridgeport; on this he hauled several thousand loads of offil, and it is now, probably, the best grazing farm in the State, and capable of feeding more stock than any other farm of Its size. This farm is ' nearly level, with a day subsoil; but the slaughter house offtl has Twada a wonderful change, the prairie grass has given place to the Blue Grass, Hurd Grass and White Clover, and instead of being like most of the land about Chicago, tax-eaten, it has brought in a handsome revenue to the owner. February 7th, 1859. Rural. Letter from lowa* Chtap Seal EtlaU—Moundt and Sort—Deranged Women Frozen to JkatA, (to. [Carreocaiaaae of the Press and TribantJ ■ TooLESDoaorcß, lowa, Jan. 26,1559, lam now in Tooleaborough, lowa. I have been in quite a number of cities and towns in lowa, but find none with a more beautiful and apparently healthly location. This town is sit uated on a bluff of the lowa River, about two miles from the Misaissippi. The lowa is good for navigation to this place at all stages of wa ter. The citizens appear hospitable, temperate and Industrious, also intelligent; the evidence be ing in finding the Faiss axo Tbibukb here; in fact there are but few places in lowa where it is not found. Hard times has made its mark here as well as in most all other locations. Bnt with the first dawn of improvement in business, this plaee will no dout-t spring into new life again. Property here has got down to very low figures, and improved farms in the neighborhood, are now offered at almost incredibly low prices, the owners having become alarmed at the continua tion ofhard tunes. I believe this is the place for investment at the present time; and if our eastern cousins would send or bring some ot their hoarded gold here for investment, could now secure the foundation lor a great fortune, through tbe pur chase ol real estate in this town aod viciui'y. This opportunity to secure great bargains in real estate here, or in any part of the West, will not continue long, therefore those who wish to be benefitted should act quickly. This has been a favorite spot of the red men. I find here an old ;Indian fort of curious con struction ; also, several mounds of very large size. I find here, also, several springs of pure, healthy water, enough to aupply a large popu lation, aod aa the town grows in eise tbe water of these springs can be conduoted in pipes to all parts of the town for the accommodation of its inhabitants. Pore well water is also secured here at various depths, varying from ten to for ty feet. Tbe winter, so far, has been mild where I have been in lowa, although there have been some few very cold days. And amoog tbe things tbat 1 have heard, is that of an old Irish woman being frozen to death near here, an en tire stranger. She is represented to have been about fifty years old, of ordUury size, and in ap parent good health; partly deranged or a mon omaniac, fancying sba was beset or surrounded with invisible foes. She came into this vicinity but a Short time before she was found dead. She appeared to be in search of a brother, and sometimes spoke of a husband and children in Dubuque, and that they once resided in or near Galena. The people here generally treated her kindly, but she would seldom remain in a house during the day, but would start early in search of a brother and to avoid her imaginary foes, and perbapsfailed to reach a house—this last un fortunate day to ber—and became chilled and frozen to death. Her eorpse was found in tbe morning and properly taken care of and bnried. Her friends in Dubuque and Galena may now be grievlog at ber long absence, not knowing where her insane wandering had led ber to. This brief statement may give tbem tbe first ti dings where her wandering mind had led her, and of her aad death. As an offset to hard times, it appears to be quite healthy throughout lowa, and the farmers generally are preparing to esgage in their work for 1859 with determination. 1 hope they will be richly rewarded for their industry and per severance, and that the panic of 1857 may be entirely forgotten in '59. X. Whittling* at the Fines, XaiK QnscT, UL. Feb. 2,1559. Editors Press and Tribune; With your permission, I propose to give yonr readers, in a few abort articles, a description of the country surrounding "The Pines," includ ing t&e city of.Qubcy, and its advantages for those seeking a pleasant and healthy home. I will here state that I have no '* axe to grind" by these articles; as I have no lots in the city, and own no land to sell in tbe county. The city of Qoiney and the country surrounding it for miles, is undoubtedly the most beautiful and picturesque in the West. High, rolling prairie, not to much broken as to render a foot of it un fit for cultivation, bnt enough so to present a series of beautiful landscapes from every hill top, aad whioh are rendered still more grand and beautiful by abundant groves, belts and points of timber throughout the whole Isnd •cape, which for miles is spread out to your view. From "The Pines," which is three miles north of thPcity, and two miles east of the " great river," a glorious sight is spread out to gladden the eye of all who delight to behold Nature in her magnificent robes of verdure, leafy.shade, and all the golden tints of tbe sun light upon the ever-varying scene. Looking to the west, the high bluffs with tbe " bottoms" in the fore ground, in Missouri, all thickly covered with the grand old forests in all their primitive and simple grandeur, with tow and then the white farm house of the hardy settler, which can, Irom this distance of some ten znileß, be seen peeping out In strong contrast to tbe sur rounding forests. While still admiring this view vast volumes of thick smoke rolling up from the tall ehimneys of the almost constantly passing steamboat, add to the grandeur and animation of tbe scene. To the northwest, some ten miles distant on the Missouri blofl; the village of L*. grange is thrown in bold relief against the sky. The eontrast between the dark forest on the bluff of the Illinois side, and tbe bottoms, and the dark waters of M our" by, and the steeples and neat white dwellings of the village, is both pleasing aod instructive. To the north and east asnooessioirof fine groves and belts of timber, where glimfftea of the rolling prairie are seen, dotted thickly with the dwellings, cattle and" stocks of gram of the settlers, the whole view being one of rare rural beauty and quiet. Look* ing to the south and east, tbe vast rolls of the prairie assume a more conical shape, andre •smbling mounds. They < present many fine sights for future homes ot elegance, where all cf combined with city life, will be enioyed. Prominent here is the resi denoe of the family of the late Rev. Dr. Blatch ford, who, years ago, wu pastor of the Pnt of jpmr-dty. 1 \ with me and look to.tfa® v aoathwa«t, andtbß *sSI I fpirea of thei* chnrchqp are penoiUed against tht | sky aa clearly as I have ao often*seen the spirt and rig of onr lake craft in a mirage or loom, as tbe sailor's say. The surface of the country falls nwav gradually from there, until within a miieof the eily, when it gradually rises agsin: to the plain upon wbioh tbe Qui Citt or thb 'W'xst is located, making is vact and giving a ffne vlew*of'tb4 city,now some-* ' what obstructed by a belt of intervening tim ber. The roar and shrill scream of the locomo* tive roshing between ns and tbe city, tell yon that no scene, however beantifnL everarreata ■the keen eye and practioal skill of tbe railroad engineer. .in my next, I intend to address those who may desire'to rnrallze, either'for plessnre or profit, and point ont a lew of the advantagea for each pnrposes, of the eonntry I have here de* scribed.

J Sm: la response to the resolotion of the House of Representatives adopted on the Blh last., call* ing upon tbe Secretaiy of tbe toterior to commu nicate to the House "tbe present situation of the military reservation of Bock Island, in the Missis* Eippi river; whether the gam a has been transfer red by the War Department to the interior De* partment, and if so, when; nod whether the same nas been trespassed npon by persons claiming Ere emptlon rights, and whether any decision has een made by said Department of tbe Interior in favor of snch pre-emptions to purchase the said reservation at tbe minimum price of one dollar and a quarter per acre," I have the honor to re. Eort the following brief sketch of facta, disclosed y reference to the flies of this department, hav ing a bearing npon tbe " present situation of tbe military reservation," and explaining the answers i which I propose to give to the inquiries addressed 1 to me by the resolution. Bock Island is situated In the Mississippi river, within the limits of the State of Illinois, in frac tional township 18 north, range 2 west, and frac tional township IB north, range 1 west, of tbe 4th principal meridian.. It was snrveyed in 1833, and the survey was approved November 23, 1838. It cootains 896 91-100 acres. A military post, known as Fort Armstrong, was established aud occupied on the island as early as 1815 or 1816. On the second of March, 1825, Secretary Calhoon addressed a letter to the Commissioner of the General Land Office, in wbich be said, ** the island is deemed necessary t Tor military purposes, and I have to request that it be ac cordingly reserved for snch purposes." _ On the Bth ot April following tbe Commis sioner addressed a letter to the register of tbe land office at Sprine&eld, Illinois, in which he says, "it is deemed necessary by the War De partment to have this island reserved for mili tary purposes. No survey of it having been returned to this office, tbat is to advise you that the island is to be considered as reserved, lor the nse of tbe government." Secretary Cass afterwards, on the 11th of September, 1685, addressed a letter to tbe Com missioner of the General Land Office on the subject, saying: "I have to request that in structions may be given to the proper register and receiver—l presume at Galena—not to offer at public sale nor to grant pre-emption rights to any of the public lanaa on Rock Island so loog&s the position is required for military purposes. I am decidedly of opinion that tbe whole island shonld be kept in possession of the troops." Tbe Commissioner accordingly, under date of the 15th of the same month, instructed the register and receiver at Galena that "the De partment of War had apprised this office tbat Rock Island, in the Mississippi river, and which has been in tbe occupation of the public since 1816, * * * ia essentially necessarv to be reserved forthe use of that garrison. If on are, therefore directed to reserve the same irom any public sale, and if any individuals who may have occupied by sufferance any portion there of, should attempt to acqaire a pre emption right on said island, iu virtue of the act of June 19, 1934, such claim cannot be recog nised." 6 This proceeding, in my opinion, did not extend the reservation, and make it more complete than the correspondence of 1825 left it. Fort Armstrong was evacuated by the troops on the 4th May, 1836, in pumiance of general orders No. 9, dated January 28,1836. Afterwards, some of the dilapidated Jog buildings were sold, and the "remainder, together with the island, were l 1®3(5) placed in charge ot an agent" of the \\ ar Department and have so continued up to the present date, &% I am advised by a letter of tbe Secretary of War, of December 20,1858. 1 would remark, however, that Secretary Poin sett, on the Bth November, 1838, addressed a let ter to the Commissioner of tbe General Land Office, from which I make the following quota tions : u lt is at present deemed advisable not to dispose of it (the reservation), and this depart ment will, till it be otherwise determined, still bold it under its control; when it shall no longer desire to continue this control, it will be surren dered to the jurisdiction ol the General Land Or* fice, to be disposed of according to Jaw, as ia view ot the construction put upon tbe act of Match 3, 1819, it cannot be sold under that act by this de- Under tbe circumstances, it is left to the General Land Office to take such measnres for the survey of the reservation as it may deem pro* per, und required by existing iaw." "Instructions have been given to the Marshal lor ttie district of Illinois for tbe removal of-in truders, as directed by the President." Oa the 11th February, 1848, Secretary Marcy addressed a letter to tbe Secretary ot the Trea sury, saying: "Tbe Department has hereto fore (on the 80th December last) reported, in answer to a resolution of the Senate, that the site is no longer required for military purposes, and it is therefore hereby relinquished, and placed at the disposal of the Department which charge of the public landa." Notwithstanding these communications ofthe War Department last quoted, tbe department in charge of the public landa has never taken any action for the sale of the reservation of (Rock Island, under the general laws, regulating tbe disposal of the public lanilp. On the contrary, it is understood that the Department of War has, at various dates since 1848, tuken mea sures with a view of selling thia reservation, under provisions of the acts of Congress of March 2, 1819, and March 3, 1359. (See Stat, vol 3, p. 520, sod volume 11, p. 203 ) These measures were not however carried out. Under date of the 29th May last, tbe Secre tary of War informed me tbat he had 41 post poned the sale of tbe military reserve at Rock Island, in order that tbe question of tbejigbts of pre-emption in these lands, now claimed by sondry individuals, may be passed on in the ordinary course of proceedinga" in this depart ment. Soon after this, "all laws authorizing the sale of military sitea (excepting tbe provj sions of tbe act, August 18, 1856, relative to certain reservations in Florida) were repealed, and it was declared that said lands shall not be subject to sale or pre-emption under tbe laws of tbe United States." The policy of the War Department in taking measnres for the sale of the Rock Island mill tary reservation after it had become useless as a military site, and that of the department in charge of tbe public lands in declining any ac tion except to survey the island, has been in ac cordance with the executive policy in other sim ilar cases, and was, in my opinion, warranted by asound construction oftbe laws then in force. Lands which have once been reserved as mili tary sites, or for military purposes, have been regarded as severed from tbe mass ofthe public lands, and thereby withdrawn from the control ofthe Commissioner of the General Land Office, and the legislative power has not provided aoy law or prescribed any conditions according to which such land can be relinquished and placed again at tbe disposal of the land department. Coogress has, however, since the act ot March 3,1819, was passed, repeatedly, by special laws, authorized the sale of particular tracts through the instrumentality of the General Land Office, thus sustaining and aacctioning the policy of the executive branch of the government on this subject. My conclusion, therefore, in reoly to the in quiry whether tbe military reservation of Rock Island has been transferred by tbe War Depart ment to tbe Interior Department is, that it has not not.been so transferred. As responsive to tbe inquiry whether said | reservation has been trespaased upon by per- ! sons claiming pre-emption rights, I have the honor to state that at one time Colonel George Davenport claimed the southeast fractional quarter of section 25, township IS north, of range 2 west, but bis claim was declnred void by the General Land Office. Congress, however, b? private act for bis relief authorized him to enter the land at $1.25 per acre, and to have a patei£ issued therefor. k Stat voL vi, p. 908.) In August, 1833, Lewis C. Underwood sought to enter the northwest fractional quarter of sec tion 81, township 18 north, range 1 west. His claim was allowed for the south portion of tbe quarter section, wbich was aituated on the south bask of the river, but was rejected lor the north part, being 49 91 100 acres, lying npon the isl and, across the narrow channel separating the ialand from the south bank ot the Mississippi river at tbat point. Montgomery Blair, Esq., has recently advised the Commissioner of tbe General Land Office tbat he appeared as attorney for J. H. Langley. Henry W. Cbamberlin, James Lackey, W. O. B. Sbelton, Jesse H. Kennedy, Cyrus Conckllng, Henry W« Adams, and Benj. O. C. Smith, claim* ing tbe right of pre-emption, in virtue ot settle ments made in April and May, 1657. He atates that bis clients appeared at tbe land office at Springfield, Illinois, on the 7th April, 1553, and that the Register and Receiver refused to hear proof of their rights because the Secretary of War had advertised tbe lands for sale as a mili tary reserve. The above mentioned are believed to be the only claims to tbe right of pre-emption on this island, of which the records of tbe department furnish information. In reply to the concluding inquiry of the reso lution 1 would respectfully state that 00 decision has ever been made by this department in favor of persona claiming pre-emption rights in tbe lands on Rock Island. Such claims hare been rejected bv the General Land Office heretofore. My predecessor, on tbe 3lst January, 1555, in a leiter to the President of the Mississippi and Missouri Railroad Compacy, expressed tbe opin ion that *'tbe disposition of tbe publie land on Rock Island is entirely within the control of the War Department." I have no hesitancy in say ing that 1 concur in that opinion, and that the sale of Rock Island, after it had become useless as a military site, was exclusively under the di rection ana jurisdiction ofthe Depirtment of War until the laws authorizing its sale were re pealed in 1858. Since then it has not been subject to sale or pre-emption under any of the laws of the Unit ed States. 1 have tbe honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servsnt, J. Thompson, Secretary.

The American and GaztUe has the following'speculations as to the applies* bility of this invention to steamships: A most important question arises in regard to the applicability of this improvement to steam ships. In all its leading elements it appears to be the desideratum for steamships—saving coal, and space, and tbe terrors of explosion. There is no apparent reason adverse to such applica tion, though, of coarse, no large pover baa yet been tried. It may be said that all tbe requisite guards against undue heat in the coils exist, since, if tbe beat of the steam rises too high, the engineer checks it by turning on more wa ter, and if it sinlu too low, by taming the water eupplyoft -Half a dozen stacks of cjils might be placed aboard a large abip. and the intense heat of the gigantic boilers and tierce fires now in use, might be wholly avoided without any diminution of motive power generated.

Heat is lost in forcing impossibilities from tbe mass of water the boil* ers roast hold, and tbe resuit is tbat great waste of fuel and space, costly repairs and terrible dis. asters attend tbe steam engine in its present use on any very large scale.

Ineffectual Judge Sinclair to Jlain jiJain the JLaxct lor able Condition of the 1 trritonj. [Correspondence of the N. Y. Times] Grut Silt Lack Crrr, 1 Utah Territory, baturday, Jan. 15,1839,J An event of tbe utmost importance in connec tion with the interests of this Territory has occur red daring this past week, namely : Tue adjourn ment of tbe United States District Court, In con seqacnce of tbe evident futility of endeavoring to sustain tbe dignity of tbe law in tliia Territory. The Court uaving been in session thirty-one days, during which iu time was wholly taken up in endeavoring—quietly and with the utmost de • cotum and dignity—to establish itself upon tbe footing, and with the authority to which it is en titled, tbe Judge, the Hon. Clias E. Sinclair, on Thursday last, the 13tb inst., announced that tbe Court, having transacted all tbe business before it arising under tbe laws of tbe United States, was now prepared to consider business arising under th'» Territorial laws. He, however,-went on to state, further, that the Legislative Assembly had made no provision whatever to defray the expens esof the Court while exercising Territorial juris diction, and has thus failed to comply with the spirit of the Organic act, and receive legally the Courts of the Uaited States provided for them by Congress. That consequently he coald not pro ceed, under ttiese circumstances, to prolocg tbe term of the Courtpand take up the consideration of public business. He then went on, and, in a mo«t earnest and emphatic manuer, addressed tlio>e connected with tbe Court, and told them that he had, in tbe hope of promoting the best interests of the legal profes sion ; in the hope that justice might finally tri umph and prevail over ignorance, error and crime, borne with them patiently, bad extended to them every courtesy and assistance within his power, but that in return for his efforts ho had been re sisted at every step, had been opposed by every trick and device wbich they had it in their power to make uso of>»aud bad been met with a deter mined purpose to catch or take advantage of bis lenity. Tbat, consequently, after mature reflec tion and deliberation, and with a fall sense of tbe responsibility of bis action, be discharged the travel se jury without going into the consideration of any of tbe cases on the Court docket, and adjourn ed the Court until Monday to bear the motions and xoind up the business of the Court previous to final adjournment. Whilst tbe juries are composed of Mormons, tbe laws cannot be administered impartially. The Church—exercising as it docs complete control, not only over the souls and bodies of its follow ers, but also over their minds and judgments—con trols the verdicts of the juries, irrespective of any law or evidence before tbem. The Grand Jury in tbe United States District Court—a Grand Jury of which a majority were leading Mormons of; this District—have ignored the biU of indictment against the murderer Chris tiansen, who was bound over tor trial by Judge Sinclair for shooting, and in cold blood catting toe throat of the deaf and dumb boy Bernard. Chris-* tiansen shot the poor boy tbree trails whilst be had him alone up in one of the gorges of tbe Big mountain. Cut the boy ran, aod succeeded in reaching u but on tbe maiu road, where he found protection. He was then placed by Cbnstianaeu, wounded and bleeding, on a lumber wagon, to be brougut to the city, but. at the mouth 01 tbe can* on they met Epliraim Hawlu, who is noted as a "destroying augel," and tbe boy was then placed on Hawks' waguu.and taken to a *p<>t about half a mile from tbe road, under the preteuce of huut iug some money wbich, as they reported, the boy stated was tbere held. Here, as llauk* testifies, Christiauseu cut the boy's throat iu selfdtfenee— the poor wounded deaf and dumb boy, wbo was entirely uuanned,having attempted to take his life by throwing rtones at him. NolrcithsiandJLg all this wan proven belore them,aud notwithstand ing Christiansen himself acknowledged tbe kil ling of the boy, yet the Mormons on tbe Grand Jury, being a majority, refused to indict him, aod thus sustained the action .of Uie '-Danites/' even in a United States Court. It is nojv proven beyond a doubt that tbe Courts here arc powerless, and serve to shield rat her tban punish the worst criminals to be found in tbe Ter ritory. Tbe Church has full control over tbe Jnries, and of coarse exercises that control as best suits its ends. Tbe proceedings in the Grand Jary-room must remain secret. Bat a Grand Juror informed us tbat if tbe proceedings which took place in that Jury-room could be made public, they would as toind even tbe "Gent les" residing here. As ft is, however, it is well known such a pilch did the dissension between tbe two parties on the Grand Jury arise, that coats were pulled off and pistols drawn, fur a general fight, wnich was only prevented by the interlerence of tbe U. S. Mar shal,who hearing the noise rushed into the Jary room in time to quell the disturbance. Governor Cumming is at present annoyed and beset by tbe Legislature an badly as the Judge was previously in tbe Conrt.

He has expressed his determination to veto also, ail acts Involving the payment of taxes into the Church treasury.

Feb 1 The finalty compromise between Mr. Buchan an and Mr. Coob waa concluded at the White House yesterday, and appears in the Union this morning. The Uuion newspaper has been fluc tuating between Buchanan and Cobb for some time past. The Buchanan-Cobb Manifesto cor rectly styles the present rate of expenditures which have been inaugurated under the present Administration, at an extraordinary class. It declares that they grew up in great part during the period of redundant revenue and surplus treasure, which resulted from tbe tsriff act of 1846, operating upon the inflated importation of the series of years wbich hsd their climax in tbe notable one of 1857, These extraordinary ap propriations were in grest part for works of permanent construction, which are not yet all hnished, many of whieh require for completion still further appropriations. This last seotence is a cool mode of shirking the responsibility which belongs largely to tbe Executive, and throwing it upon Congress; it is a lesson from which it is hoped Congress will become wise. The Homestead Bill—lts Prospects* Tbe Washington correspondent of tbe Phila. delphia Press says: "Tbe depreciation in the price of bounty land warrants in consequence of tbe passage of the Homestead Bill through the House of Repre sentatives, occasions great solicitude, as to the fate of that bill in the Senate. There is, no doubt, a large majority in its favor, but inas much as there is no previous question in the Senate, and as the biU will be bitterly opposed, the. only way to secure its passage would be lor Senators to set it o"ut, which at the present ad vanced state of tbe session is not probable. Tbere are so many other measures, including appropriation bills of Government, tbat muat be passed, or that will be straggled for by their respective friends, thst 1 do not think the advocates ot the Homestead bill can put it through. Doubts sre entertained whether, in the event of its passage, the President would sign it. He is not willing to meet the issue, and, of course, will labor to secure its post pouemeot, which will be equivalent to.its defeat, at le&st for a year.
