VOLUME XII. PRESS AND TRIBUNE. FRIDAY MOB KING, FEBRUARY 11,1850. The Apportionment Bill in the Senate. An arrangement has been effected between tbe Republicua and Democratic members of the State Senate, by which the Apportion ment bill shall be takeu up and discussed to morrow and a vot« reached on Monday. Tbe quid pro quo for this concesstou was an agree ment on tbe part of tbe Democracy to let the business of tbe session proceed. Opening an Oyster. If may not be generally Known to tbe peo ple of Illinois that John Calbono, late Sor- ' veyor-Geucral of Kansas and Nebraska, en gineer-in- chief of tbe Lecompton Constitution and Grand Master of tbe order of the Candle- Box, (together witb Mr. Uriah Manly and Mr. R. 11. Ridgely,) has been holding office aud gettiug a salary of one thousand dollars per annum for nearly eleren years, isJTritstee of tbe old State Bank—commissioned, to set tle up tbe affairs of tbut institution, and pri vileged, it would Feom, to digest (or drink up) its assets. These persons were appointed ou or about November Ist, 1848, by Gov Frcucb, under ait act parsed by the Legisla ture in February. 1847, il for finally closlog the Affiiirs of tbe State Bank of Illinois." They were authorized to fc'ie charge of all tbe as-utt; of tbe Bauk, and to maintain suits at law to collect all debts or demands, and iu loose tettns to '• wind up its affairs." An act was pas-sud the following year to com plete tbe winding-up, in which tbe provisions for putting tbe bank in liquidation were ex tended to January Ist, 1851. No further meutiou is made of tbe.se officers iu the £fu futo book until Feb. 15lh, 1555, wheu au act was passu! dircctiug the Governor to i&uc Slate bouils 10 them to the amouut of s4,* 538 79, on home uutettlcd transaction. Messrs. Calbouti, Manly and liidgdy have kept cl<* • ns clams during Ihe past eleren year*, having never reported on their success in '• winding up.*' When Gov. Bissell cume into oflicc be iippolotrd Gu-tavus Kaerncr aud two associates to receive the balance, if any, in the ba'ida of the Trustee?, and make an exhibit of tbe affairs to date. But the old Trustees bel»l on to their rubbish, and the Supreme Court decided that they were not removable. A resolution offered bvj Mr. Mack, of Kankakoe, and adopted by the Leg Mature, bids fair now to opeu the oyster aud tee what is insid'-. The resolution call.- for an investigation, and icquires tbe keepers of the great State Bank secret to divulge forthwith. The asxjts of the institution, ' when placed in their bands, are Mated at Kjveuty or eighty 1 bousand dollar.-. It appears , that they surrendered to the Governor, April j 7th, 1831, boii'l- and herip umounting to $311,700 70. Their salaries since 1848 will 1 probably cover any balance. : Amendments to the School Law. 1 The amendments to the School law, which ' were pfli-svd iu the House en Tue?da3' cveuiog j last, are thus stated by the Springfield correspon- ' dent 0! the Joxwnul: I The* bi I as it passed provides lor the distribu tion ot the School fund among the di.-.tri t«, half J 011 fclicdules and halt in proportion to the number J of children over five aod under twenty-one years • of age; tne election of tbiee Dueetors, to hold 1 office fur three years ejeb after the first election ; : provides for the fortnatiou of Union Schools, and « the trausier of pupils from one district to another; ! the election of Directors is held ou the first Mon day iu September instead of tiic first Monday in 1 OctoW; provides that no person may vote to levy taxes lur auy purpose, unless he shall have ! lived ia the di>tric! thirty days previous 10 said * election ami be a tax-payer; the Directors may levy taxes without a vote of'the people lor the j puipo.-c of raising money to continue schools for the term or wx luou'hs, when tbe public funds , are uot huflicieut, and for fuel, lunrture and re jmirs ot school houses, and puichisiuL' the ueces- ! sury books, but no tax ior purcbasiu^ grounds or building a school bouse shall be levied . without a vote of the i-eoplr; and tlut no person residing on tne 1.

The Attempted flock Island Mvindlc. t l»om the Bock I.l&nl Arpni.] Much indignation exists iu the community ut large, eioce it has beeu ascertained tbat Gen. Jones has succeeded in prevailing upon the Congressional Committee on l'ublic lj*nd«, to report a bill in Congress in favor ot giving the j tetand to the pre emptors Xo well informed * man about here has ever auppoeed for a moment tbat tbe squatters would get poeseßsion of it by paying one dollar and twenty five cents per acre. The very idea has been b j uosurd, that it has really received but little consideration. No 1 one at all converauut with the history of tbe isl- , and doubts its being a (miliary reservation, sub ject to the same conditions that other property f belonging to tbe government is subject to. Gen. t Jones may succeed in getting a favorable report trom tbe committee, there is certaioly jus tice sod honor enough remaining in the ilouse i to reject so unjustifiable a recommendation. All < tbat is desired by the people at large, iato have tbe island laid off in lots numbering several 1 acres each, and a dinj>omtion made of tbe prop- * erty to tbe highest bidders. This is the only < mode ot procedure tbat will render generel sat isfaction. ■ 1 ! Feeling of the Liberals in Germany. ' Tbe Strabian Ulrrcury,' one of the organs or J the LiU'ral party iu southern Germany, has cntrr- ' ed a violent piutest against the in'eivention of 1 France in lUtly. The article ia too long for trans lation, but one or two of its more remaikab!e pannage* must be quo ; ed. The Swubian paj»er , says " We Germans have for many cent ries known aud felt the con*tqueuccs of complications iu 1 Italy. They have aitvavs becu injaiious to us; 1 but it would be Infinitely woisc for Germany 11 Frauce were to have the supremacy iu Italy in stead of Austria.

Probable Subsidence of the 'War Flurry in Europe. [Prom tlie London Tlrces. Jan. 19.] We may now venture to hope tbat tbe prin cipal danger of an Eatopean war baa for tbe preaent p»e>ed ««ay. li would be well if we could tliftt utter tbe bloving over ot this storm-cloud the world might indulge in visions of permanent chlui and sunshine.

It wtll appear w any one who baa w*tcbed tbe euurtiti of there events that, afwr a!!, there ia a moral power not wholly unable to oope with Emperors and Ktags. Tbe decided and unwavering judgment of tbe English Gavernment and Press has, it is ad mitted on all bands, been chiefly instrumental in checking tbe madness of tbe Bonapartut clique] Austria has receive'* a support on which she hardly counted, and France has been met with a resolution which ber rulers deemed wholly impossible. We sincerely trust tbat tbe former of these Powers will appreciate tbe be havior of a nation which bears co-good will to Ultramontane absolution; that Francis Joseph will recoguite that, after all, a tree people may be a better ally than auy dear orotber of tbe Imperial class; end tbat'be will endeavor to re store in bis dominions the kindly authority wbicli diß'iogotahed tie old German Empire, in the place of thak military op[>r*»bioa which bis fauiilv bur - ltr<trnt from tbe Rjmincfla. As for tbe French people, we congratulate them on tbe clearnesa wih which tbey have at*n that their advantage in this cue- coincided witb the claims of justice. Tuev have not wtstedorgaos to aa sure them tbatEogland was too much exhausted by tbe Indian war to think of contravening the pehemes of France, and that, even if the Queen's Government desired to interfere, tbe Kogliab Liberals would cheek aoy Anti-Italian policy. They have now been uodeceived, and for tue sake of all*parties to this dispute, for tbe safce of France and Italy moat ot ull. we rejoice tbat the common sense of mankind baa won tbe day. Tbe war so recklessly invoked would probably in six months bave made a combination against France aa formidable as tbat of 1815 Italy in any eaae conld onlv gain a change of masters, and substitute the Ktng Stork of a French Vice* roy for the King Log of an ordinary Austnan Archduke. Now we are happy to believe tbat there ts no danger bat irotn tbe folly of the Sar dinians, who, having Jong kept up an army en tirely dispropnrtionate to the extent and wealth of their kingdom, bave looked to war as an es cape from tbe financial difficulties which other wiae threaten to overtake them. Unless these, however,in sheer desperation, break tbe peace, we have no doubt tbat the danger ia for tbe preas&t over.

Every foot of room in Me g tropolitan Hall was occupied, and large numbers ) were turned away unable to obtain entrance. £ Mr. Taylor introduced bis theme by ailnd iog to bis risit to Sgypt seven years ago, where t he determined to visit the Polar Zone, and from j which he derived a warm background for his , Arctic picture. He suggested that oar knowl , edge of the Polar Zone is very limited, and that we generally presume its inhabitants are Esqui maux and Samoyeds, and that the year consists of nine months winter, and three months cold weather. He had little confidence at first in his power to endure the severity of the North, but his misgivings melted under experience. He noticed the curve of the isothermal lines to the northward along the western coast of the Scan* dinavian peninsula, which kept the Norwegian ports open all the year, while the ocean in the same latitude on the American side was solid ice from October to Jan;. It was no wonder , that Russia coveted these ports; her geography was incomplete without either Tarkey or Lap land. There was snow in Germany before he left it; he entered Stockholm in a snow storm, and tbe thermometer gradually sunk as be went North, until at lost he found the mercury and bis nose frozen at tbe same time. Mr. Taylor was especially surprised at tbe brilliancy of the Arctic skies. Nothing conld exceed their magnificence. They were superior to any he bad* seen in Italy, Spain, Greece or Egypt. That these appearances are not pecu* liar io Lapland, but are common to the whole Arctic region, he proved, by referring to tbe observations ot Sir John Ross and Dr. Kane. In winter the forests seem a world of alabaster, the glorified forests ot the Norseman's Valhalla. Tbey rtflect every hue of tbe sky. In summer, Swedish Lapland scenery presents no remark able feature, and are tame, but in winter, tbe white bearded Magician of the North trans* mutes these common objects into marvels. All color vanishes, and everything becomes spotless white. The anow-clad forests do not exhibit a single speck of green; each tree stands there as white as ivory, hard as marble, end brittle as glass. Tbe snow lodging upon tbe twigs and branches, and freezing, bridge one tree to anoth er with fairy arches, and transform the com monest things into fantastic and beautiful forms —festoons, candelabra, gothic pinnacles, looeb curtains, fbwera, palm leaves and colloisal spir its, in a bewildering confusion, d«zzling to the i eye. The rose color at dawn, deepened and changed through all shades into orange at noon* No living forms of vegetaiioi were half so love ly. There tbey stood, cileot, unmoved by tbe wind; not like tbe trees of the earth, but like the old forests of the Scandinavian mythology. To him, tbe discovery of such exquisite and unexpected beauty was solemn and touching. It was as if God had designed it as a compensa tion tor the absence of warmth and light. "Not for you," he says to his Arctic children, " the kindly nursing of night; not for you the beauty of tbe pregnant earth, the genial processions of the seasons, the costless service of tbe sun; but I will cover your desolation with the purity of Eden; I will spread the colors of tbe rainbow over tbe whole arch of the sky, and tbe march* - es of my armies shall make your darkness beau tiful." Discoursing upon meteorological features, Mr. Taylor said when the thermometer stood thirty live to forty degrees below zero, tbe sky was clear and there was no wind, and riding was very comfortable; but when the sky was over cast and tbe wind whistled it was dangerous. Ue had felt quite as cold at home as at any time < in Lapland; and be remembered having beard Dr. Kane say, on bis lost return from tbe Arctic Sea, in a raw Octeber day, that he suffered more then from cold than at any time on his voyage. Still, the cold was not to be smiled at. Sleep in it was death ; the beard froze to the face; the cheeks were sometimes covered with ice, and the eyelashes cleared themselves only by i incessant wickiog. The sensation of ccld wus felt mostly on going into a warm room. He bud 1 experienced tbe counterpart of this in the trop ics, wben, after having borne tbe burning heat of tbe day without difficulty, he found himself roasting in the diminished temperature of the night. TBS XOSRLAKDI&S. , The climate influences the character of the , people. He first began to discover a difference in tbe Scandinavian people, attributable, be 1 thought, to the influence of cold weather, in the ' province of Norrland. Toe Norrlandera ecjoy splendid health, and are fairly formed men, though not handsome. Their oearing is cold, but only through superior self-control. One rarely bears from them-.a word of affection. Lave is silent, because eternal. He thought tbev do not koow tbev have such a thing as a , nervous system. lINLAND. Io Finland be found many things that were Ori ental ; among them tbe vapor bath, the love of pipes and coffee. The Finns are as moral as tbe Swedes. Although the two sexes use tbe vapor bath together, and tbe usual naluatiou is an em brace witb the right arm, yet their sense of pro priety is so acute that kissing is not tolerated. A F onish woman expressed great surprise on being told that is many of the countries ot Eu rope men kissed their wives; and said that if her husband should kiss her she would box bis ears so tbat be would feel it for a week. YBB LAFLANDSE3. Tbe Lapps are taller than they are generally supposed to be. Their Paganism left them tilty years ago. and tbe old man who is well acquaint ed wiih the old legends and superstitions, is now shut op in a Norwegian prison, for having committed a murder while under religious ex citement. The clergy have great influence over the Lapps. Most ot them came from Southern Sweden and Norway, and their lot is no envia ble one. They live iu huts scarcely better than tbe average, and they officiate in churches in which fire uever was kindled. Siid one of the pastors to bim: "The werds seem to freeze as they leave my uiouib, and tbey fail on the con gregation like white snow." The reindeer, which is to the Lapp all tbat tbe camel is to tbe Arab, can never be tamed. Tbey are always liable to turn ronnd and stare at you, end there is no way to start them but by gettiogout of the sledge, turning them around, and taking one's chance to jump in as one conld. But the Lapps have infinite patience with them. Ue has known a Lapp to start a retodeer fifty times in a day, without loiiog bis temper. Mr. Taylor concluded with a graphic descrip tion of the dw«rf lie ot the vegetable kingdom in tbe North, and the sudden coming of tbe Northern cummer, delightiog his audience with that oeautifut word piloting which long ago distinguished bis composition. A more satis factory oecauut of Arctic vegetation, however, may be lound in Dr. Kane's volumes. At tbe close of the lecture it was announced, tbat in consideration of tbe fact that so many were uaable to gain admittance, Mr. Taylor would repeat his leoture at tbe same place on the 3d of March.

Mrs, Uarkhax Wheeler's Lectures —Mtstrs. k Editors:—Attracted by jour editorial notices of a lecture upon Anatomy and Physiology, to be i given by Slrs.Markham Wheeler at tbe Third Presbyterian Church,'l dropped in on Tuesday eveniDg, and found myself one of a delighted , audience of tome cicht hundred, who listened for an boar, with the moat breathless interest, to a lecture rarely surpassed in deep scientific research and elegance of finish, interspersed with the most eloooent and touching appeals to those of her own sex upon the importance of the subjects upon which her lectures treat. No person could listen to Mrs. W. without feeling fully assured that tbe lady was perfectly home iij her subject, and fully competent to instruct those who might at tend ber further course of lectures. We An but hope that tbe ladies of other portions of our city will avail thenwelres of tbe tact that Mrs. Murk bam Wheeler has become a readent of Chicago, and secure ber services for a course of these he tares. • We understand that Mra. Wheeler, In response to many urgent appeals, will give a course of lectures on the South Side, and perhaps on the North Side, should ber time permit. Chuuch op the Ascension* Festival. This festival takes place this evening, at Metropolitan Hall. The intrinsic merit of the appeal to the liberality of our citizen* should call together a fall and generous attendance. But aside Mb this, they offer attractions which ought to be regarded as a more than recompense for tlis small sum asked for admission. It will be seen by an adver tisement under our amusement head, that tbe fes tival is to include a grand concert, in wheh Ma* dame Danzi, the eminent and popular German soprano, with many well known amiteurs, will take part. In tbe course or the concert, Madame Danzi will sing Casta Diva, from the celebrated opera of Norma, MUs SlcEroy, the accomplished Harpist, will also take part in the concert. We think we may safely say that'this will be one of tbe most attractive festivals ot tbe season. Fob Pike's Peak.—The emigration to Pike's Peak truin this part of tbe country lias already commenced. The Iwa City Republican sars a parly of three young men from Chicago passed through that place a few days tince rn route for the gold regions; and also that Mr. B. Sopris, of Michigan City, acting in behalf of the Indiana and Illinois Pike's Peak Miuiog Company, is expected there toon with two companies for tbe same des ; tination, one of twenty-five men, and ths other of from seventy-fire to one hundred.

XXXTTQ COXGREiS—SKCOSD SESSIOX Wassixgtov, Feb. 10 Ssxatx.—A commu nication was received from the Secretary of War, forwarding information respecting the claima of Britiah to propriatory righta in Washington and Oregos. On tbe reaolution to permit Lieut. Maury and Prof. Bache to accept medals trom tbe King of Sardinia coming up, Meacra. Crittenden and Shields expreased tbe opinion that no sovereign better deserves tbe symoatby of tbe American people than the King of Sardinia, tbe hope of Italy. The resolution waa adopted. Mr. Clay, from tbe Commerce Committee, aiked to be discharged from the consideration of tbe subject of marine signals, but at tbe in stance of Mr. Seward, tbe motion waa laid on the table for further consideration. Mr. Groen, of Miasouri, from the Committee on Territories, reported adversely on tbe peti tion of Measra. O'Reilly, Speed and Shafiuer, who asked tor means to coaatruct a teleeranb line to the Pacific. Mr. Seward atked tbe Senate to take up his resolution, submitted some daja since, to per mit Lane and McCarthy, claimants of the seats from Indiana, to have placss on the floor and to argue their case. Mr. Bavard spoke again&ttbe proposal, and contended that the Legislature of Indiana had been guilty of disreaptct to the Senate of tbe United Statea. Mr. Seward replied that all that Mr. Bayard bad reported did not chang* tbe nature of tbe case. He considered that 0/ all lawa of parlia mentary usage, claimants bad a right to be I heard. He moved, therefore, to poatpone the 1 consideration of tbe report \ptil after his reso lution thail have been discussed as preliminary thereto. It being notr one o'clock, tbe tpecial order (Mr. Btgler's resolution in relation to tbe taritT) came up. Mr. Clingman, of X. C., took the ilsor and spoke at great length in opposition to Mr. Big ler's Protection views. Mr. Clingman said be had been instructed by the Legislature of bu Slate to oppose any increase of duties and to insist upon the importation ot railroad iron free of duty. The President in his message had recommended specific duties and ihe friends of taxation had seized the oppoatunity to ask for protection. The Senators from Pa., ask ing the one fifteen dollars and tbe other eight, cn dollars per ton, which ou iron worth £0 per ton w equivalent to 50 per ceuL The Pcnsylvanuns re mined hiinof Falstaff—" When thou art King,rob my exchequer HaL" He could not assent that the iron interval was so oppressed. It had increased three-fold in the past, eleven vears, a ratio not equalled by any other branctf of industry. Hesbuwedby numerous illustrations that tbe succession ot tariffs has acted unfavorably on production, and also from tbe statistics of the last thirty-eight years, that all branches of in dustry prosper under a low tariff and languish under a high one. lie did not attribute the last revulsion to the tariff of 1657. The country is fast recovering from the depression, and the pres ent revenue will be sufficient if unnecessary ex penses are cut off. Most of those great ex penditures had been caused bf tbe votes of the opposition. Mr. Simmons, of R. L, replied in a lengthy speech. His views were generally in favor of a fixed ad valorem duty; the price to be deter, mined by law, and not by tbe importer. He was opposed to an increase of postage, which would be putting the burden of the whole cost of the transportation of the mails upon the letter wri ters. He was convinced that there was no pos sible meaos to raise the requisite amount of revenue from the paesent tarilll In the course of his remarks he said the Presi dent had recommended specific duties. He bad no doubt that the President was sincere, for he had been in favor of specific duties for forty years, but tbe enunciation of that one honest sentiment of bts heart had so metamorphosed him that nobody knows him, and like Acunn he is set upon by his own hounds. The suHsct was postooned until to-morrow, when Mr. Hun ter has the floor.* Mr. Seward attempted to procure the consideration of his resolution respecting the Indiana Senators. After much debate the Sen ate decided not to take it up—2o against 19. Tbe Cnba bill was then taken up. Mr. Foote, of Vermont, moved an amendment that no payment' shall be made until the treaty shall be ratified by tbe United States. He said the purpose of the amendment is to inhibit pay ment to Spain until tbe bargain shall have been completed by both parties. However desirable the acquisition ot Cuba may be or is on commer cial and political considerations, tbe question whether we would have it if we could is not pre sented in this bill; the only naked alternative ts shall we appropriate $30,000,000 from an ex hausted treasury, or by superadding to the public debt aa a bribe to Spain to make such a treaty, and as a compulsion to the American Senate to ratify it. The Senate is a co-ordinate branch of tbe treaty making power without whose assent all treaties are null and of no account. The bill is a legis lative assumption of a prerogative of tbe ifen ate, and is therefore unconstitutional. It is an invidious attempt to invade and get aronnd the treaty making power, and thus to remove one of the strongest safeguards of the public welfare. Cuba, moreover, is not for sale, and cannot be purchased bt any price, except that of blood. It 18 idle to appropriate a vast sum of money tor its purchase, when Spain regards the idea that she would sell it, as an indignity to her honor to her weakness maybe. He would not say that tbe bill was a transparent humbug or an experi ment in political chicanery, but would sar that taere bos not been in the past forty years a more ioopportune time to offer to purchase. Mr. Pugh offered a substitute for Mr. Foote's amendment, to the effect that no payment shall be made the end which shall involve more than one hundred and fifty millions. Mr. Pugh spoke for over two hours, reasoning that how ever appropriate the Spanish possession, Cuba, it is no longer so, inasmuch as she has let every inch of Galf coast and that no power on earth has now so mach reason for in possession a* the United States, aa we own, prac tically, the wtaob commerce aod much ol ihe coast of the Gulf and aic entitled to the key which locks and unlocks it. Moreover, the gov ernment of Cuba is not *uch as can be tolerated by any liberal government, and is one which offers no redress for outrages on oar cit'zens. lie would insist that &pain should arm the Captain General with deliuite powers, and would notily tier that for the uext outrage redress woald be demanded ou the spot and exacted at the cannou's mouth. He bad no doubt that the people of Cuba really de.«ire annexation to the United Sta'es, excluded as they are from all participation m the management and emoluments of the govern ment. There is no affinity between Spain and Cuba, except In affinity or blood, which did not prevail in her in Mexico, in Texas, nor in ours, in the Revolution. Moreover, Spain has never exhibited any friendliness towards tbe Uuired States, but, oa the contrary, our relations for tbe past ten or tweDty yeaw have been those of semi-hostility. England and France have no legitimate business wiib tbe question. Mr. Benjamin, of La., obtained the floor, when tbe Senate, at a late bour, adjourned. Honsi —The House resumed the considera tion of the Nebraska contested election case. After tbe debate, tbe whole subject was, on motion of Mr. John Cochrane of New York, ta bled by six majority. Mr. Stephens, ot Oa., lrom the Committee on Territories, reported back without amendments the Senate bill for the admission of Oresoa into tbe Union. He said there could be no question that there is sufficient population in Oregon to allow of her admission into the Union under the "uting law and eompact. It must be at least 60,000, and in bu opinion it was above 100 . 000, according to ratio of increase Mr. Stephens §poke briefly i a favor of tbe ad mission ot Oregon. Mr. Gro», referring to tbe Kansas restric tion, said the population of that territory waa much greater than that of Oregon, and that be wooM never give his sanction to such an unjust restriction as was now proposed in favor ot Ore gon. Mr. Hughes of Ind., charged the Republi cans with opposing the Oregon bill because tho territory was Democratic. Mr. Nichols of Oaio, advocated the admission of Oregon, and repudiated its being a oartv question. Mr. Granger of N. T., opposed the admis sion, objecting to the principle in the Constitu tion allowiog unnaturali vd foreigners to vote. He also opposed the provision which prohibits negroes from suing in the courts. Mr. Maynard, ot Tenn., opposed the bill be cause it granted tbe right of Suffrage to un naturalized foreigners. On motion of Mr. Stephens the vote on the It was fixed for Satnrdar at noon. The House went into Committee. No quorum being present the Committee took a recess un til? o'clock. Erasure Sa&siox.—Mr. Keim, of Penn., made a speech in favor of Protection. Mr. Taylor, of La., spoke in favor of tbe ac quisition of Cnba. Mr. Abbott, of Me., opposed tbe bill which 1 passed tbe Senate at the last session, repealing the Fiahing Bounties. Several other speeches were then made on Tarioos subjects, when the House adjonrned. From Cherry Creek. LxATunrosTß, Feb. I.—Mr. Lawrence, an old Calitornian, has just returned from Cherry Creek, and bringa very favorable accounts of tbe prospects at the mines.

Wasaixgtox, Feb. 9.—ln Executive session yesterday an exciting debate arose on tbe ap pointment of Berjamin Briggin of Maine, as commissioner under tbe reciprocity treaty with Great Britain. Tbe Senate declined to confirm tbe appointment, and tbe case was laid aside for future action. The Aouse Investigating Committee on Print ing bavin? have discovered another fraud of between $20,000 and $30,000 in a contract with a Philadelphia house for paper. Wben the Oregon bill comea np to-day an amendment will be made repealing tbe popular restriction clause in the Kassaa conference bill of last session. Private advices from Jacksonville, Fla., state that a vessel lelt that port a few weeks ago for Africa, to take in a cargo of slaves, and that a brig sailed tbe day previous to meet her at sea and transfer the cargo. A letter 'from Pari*, from a prominent sourc?, btate* (on iofoimation from Madrid) that it ia not lirobabie that Mr. Preston will be received as U. S. Minisier, but if he should be, that tbe first loti umtion from him relative to tbe purchise of Cuba will be deemed sufficient groncds for giving him bis passports. Our Government Is, however, not in receiptor anytfficial information from Spain on that fcn' ject. It U stated in well informed circles that ihe re instatement, by Miramon, of Zuloaga to tbe Presi dency in Mexico was at tbe instigation of France and England, who have an especial ioterest in bis admiuistratiou, in connection with debts due to those Governments. The eflect of the Tote in the Hon*e, to-day, lay iog the Nebraska election case on tbe table. Is to continue Judge "Ferguson in his seat as Delegate from that Territory. The impression prevails that the proposition to place money at tbe command or the President to negotiate fur the acquisition of Cuba, will pass the Senate, but will De defeated by a large ma jority in the House.

A debate took pl&ce on the various proposi tions, and fiaally the resolutions of Mr. Phelps were adopted. A noticeable feature in the proceedings was the defeat, by a vote of two td seven against •weuty five, of Mr. Crawford's resolution de claring it inexpedient to alter the tariff of 1857. It was understood that the members present were not to be bound by the action of tho cau cus. Arrival of the Utah Mail. LiAvsNWOBTn, Feb. 9.—The Utah mail, with dates to tbe 19th uIL, has arrived.
