The usolhefed fires in the Democratic fur
nace spilled over in tbe Senate of the United
—States on Wednesday last, and raged with uo
~ -fierceness* for the epaoe of ecvcn
1 labours, '"dielittle "matter which kindled eo
a fiODflagration was Mr. Hale'a amend

Tho only, report of tbo debate which has reach
ed us, is tjiat telegraphed to the New York pa
per®., whiah gives merely a blur of the di6cus
... eion; but it is plainly manifest that the ring
leaders of the party,—Hunter, Brown, Davis,
Mason, Green, Slidell and Gwln—put Mr.
Dbuglas and his dogma of "unfriendly legis
lation" through tbo hopper without much
ceremony.
Tbo debate was opened by Sir. Seward in a
calm, close defense of the amendment. Brown
cf Mississippi followed with an ultra pro-tJarc
-17 harangue,in which be took pains to repudi 7
ete Fqaattor sovereignty and all the heresies
which grow out of it. Mr. Donglas came up
■: next with his Freeport doctrine, that Terri
torial Legislatures may do what Slate Legist
latures may not j that is, nullify the Consti
"tution of tbe TTaifcd States. He repeated
the word swindle about the rights of the peo
ple or a Territory to-confiscate intonating
liquors, which all our readers have heard so
olien—omitting to mention that the Supreme
Court have nover declared intoxicating liquor
to be property. At tne Fame time he re-en
dorsed tbe Bred Scott decision, but held that
its effect was simply to give the right of
transit to slaveholders emigrating to the Ter
ritories—to establish their inalienable right
to march through .Missouri, but whibkiug
away the moment they reach the Kuusas
boundary I In the course of Mr.
remarks be tripped up the clumsy Senator
from Pennsylvania on bis substantives—Mr.
Bigler having accidentally alluded to ne
groes as citizens. Mr. Douglas brought bim
to the right use of the vernacular, to wit, in
TwbUanis. Mr. Davis of Mississippi, next took
op the cudgels end went over the whole
ground, repudiating "unfriendly
as something abhorrent alike to comuiou sentc
an<2 the Constitution. Mr. Green OIMO., follow
ed in about the same vein,adding bis decided
testimony against the recent act abolishing
Slavery, in tlib Kansas Legislature. Mxson of
Virginia loomed up near the close of the de
bate, and put in two or three hard blows at the
■ -Ulinoifl Senator, as lor instance : That the
right of properly is something clearly kuowu
and defined in the Constitution, whereas the
" people of a Territory " arc not—that fbe
. doctrine promulgated by the gentlemtiu from
Illinois could uot receive an electoral vote
south of the Potomac, etc. His colleague.
Hunter, affirmed that when the Nebraska bill
ww passed, it was his clear uudersluudiug
that under it the Territories could no! exclude
slavery, and he read from his own speeches in
1854 to prove it. And so tho cauldron bub
bled. Broderick and Stuart sided with Doug
las. Pugh of Ohio, with his customary clear
ness and d.cision, spoke one way aud voted
the other.
This is but a foretaste of what tbe Democ
racy of the Free States have yet to swallow-
The' Charleston Convention will givj "au
friendly legislation "to the dogp. A deal ol
nselets mouthing was gone through with Ly
ilr.Donglap, in the debate we have reviewed,
touching his solid standing on the Cincinnati
platform—as though that was an argutneu!
In his favor, or bad any bearing on thecal.
Mr. Douglas is a.greenhorn, indeed. What
ever suits the deminds of a
oligarchy is good Democracy. Whatever
--conduces to tho Africanization of the conti
nent fquareswith the Cincinnati platform.
Whatever does not, Is the roundest liercsv.
whether coming'from the pen of Mr. fi.tle oi
the mouth of Mr. Douglas. But iu the case
nnder review the overseers have both tic
power and tbe argument. " Uufriei.'dly lci:is
lation" is a efupendous wham, hardly ujuaiti
by " Popular Sovereignly." The latter vas
coccocted to defraud tho Free Stales—the
former to eavo a domagoguo by defrauding
tbe Slave States. Each is bald-faced aud iu-
Fuiliug in tbe last degree to theconmiou M*Dhc
cf the nation. Like icebergs driven by oppos
ite wind* and current?, they are closing upoii
each other, and Mr. Douglas' craft is between
them.
JBr. Bottfc' New York Speech*
Tiie very elaborate and able speech of Hon.
John Minor Botts, of Virginia, in Nen* York
a few days ago, is deservedly attracting the
attention of political circles throughout the
Rortli and Eist. More heed is givcu to liii
cpiuioQs and positions from the fact that it h
nuden>'o'l that he is the mouth pit ce of the
able aud influential, if not numerous, party
to which bo belongs—the Wblg-AnierkaL
party of the South aud Soutbwcti. Hei*
supposed to rc rcho tbo viewe of such m.*n as
Critteudenol' K-utueky, Bell of Tcnne.-.-'-e,
Sayuerof Xouh Carolina, and oibor les* dis
tinguished but hardly less powerful leaders
in the organizations cf the pa<t, i>s well us
the views of journals like the Richmond JF%,
the Louicvlle Journal, and tha St. Louis
Evening Xacs— influential exponents of the
political opinions of the day. The spu-ch
is to be treated as on overture of the minority
parfy of tho South—tbe opposition, no mat
tc-r how designated—tojbe majority, the He
publicans of the North,'loran union by uhlc'j
the Democracy may be dispossessed of tbe
power in the nation which it has po aud 1-
cioutly abused. The pivot upon which Mr.
Botts turns toward bis would-be Northern
allies, is his inextinguishable hatred of the
Sham Democracy, which blazes out in every
paragraph of bis lengthy harangue. With
that, and with the conviction which most en
lightened men riiaro with him, that there mu«-t
be a speedy change in the managomeuf of
our national affairs, or an end of our attempt
«t self-government, he comes bvfore a Nor
thern audience, and indirectly, though not
In term?, asks their co-operation in the work
of national regeneration which he proposes
to commence. Mr. Botts, with less oUcuiify
cn that vexed subject which divides the North
from the South—that everlasting Slavery
question—might mike bis way eaav aud bis
triumph certain. North will demand or
Lim, and his co-laborers, if we understand the
petition of Northern Republican?, the fol
lowing :
L An admission of* the power of Congress
over Slavery iu the Territories.
IL A concession of tbe right of the majority,
in Congress, when fairly constituted, to exer
cise its power in any way not incousis-t. Nt
■with the constitutional rights of the North tr
South.
nL A denial of the Dr«d Scolt dogma/hat
th«e is, by virtue otlbe Constitution, ana in
defiance, or lack of, local law, property in
man.
These points conceded, tho nn'on which
Ur. Botts desires is easy. They embrdy all
tbe principles to which tbo' Antl-Slaverv,
anti-Democratic feeling of the North, has,
dnco the subsidence of the wild excitcrc-nt
raised by tho repeal of the Missouri Com
promise, fallen back. They cany us back to
the days in which the North and. South.
Wbigs and Democrat*, were substantially
united in tbeir views of the proper, politic U
treatment of this Slavery question-to a time
anterior to the rise of the pernicious heretics 1
by -which, tbo North and South have befcn 1
drawn asunder, and the integrity of the'Rc
public seriously threatened. The principles |
which once commanded tbe devotion of Vir- '
£inia and'Kcntucky, and which have given re- ]
sown to tbeir most eminent statesmen and '
patriot*, may be re-established in tbo.»e States.

p Unemployed Steamships#
There are now lying idle at the port of New
York no lesa than eighteen Ocean steamships,
not one of which has been used during tbe win
' ter. They are tbe Ariel, America, Adriatic, At-
lantic, Baltic, Canada, Daniel Webster, Erics
son, F&lcon, Georgia, North Star, Northern
; Light, Ohio, Ocean Qaeen, .Victoria, Yander
) bilt. St Lorn*, and Star of the West. And of
nil these, the New York papers say, there is
r prospect of employment, ortalk of employment,
immediately, Tor but five—the America, Canada,
Northern Light, Star of the West, and Osean
j- Queen. These Steamers, for the most part, be
loogto the ColKnb 1 line, to Commodore Yander
bilt, cod to M. O. Roberta L Co., and their ag
-1 gregatc value, according to the estimate of their
' owners is |7,550,000.
M oft of these Steamers have heretofore run
' in tbe various Ocean Mail lines established by
• act of Congress, but have been withdrawn with
. the hope of obtaining larger subsidies. The
Adriatic, Baltic and Atlantic were withdrawn
, trom the Collies line in April, 1557, on the
ground that $19,000 the trip—tbo amount paid
for carrying the mails—was too little for the eer
rice. Some of Commodore Vanderbili's Steam
ers hare more recently been withdrawn from the
New York, Bremen and Havre line for a similar
pretext.
The owners doubtless hone, by keeping these
1 vessels idle in port, to induce Congress to pay
\ enormous rates for mail service, by which they
I will more than make good the interest on their
cost and their depreciation in valae while unem
ployed. If there were no each expectations in
dulged, these vessels woald at once be put in
commission and made to earn something for
tbeir owners. It is to be hoped that Congress will
not be frightened into compliance with the un
re&Eonable demands of these Ocean Kings. The
1 gratuities already paid them have led to propo
' aitioss for a return to high rates of postage to
sustain the Post Office Department. It will be
i well enough to let Steamship building rest upon
the legitimate demand for that description of
craft. If Ocean Steamships are not profitable
j as an investment without taxing the people of
tbe country for their support, let us do without
them. If they are eelf sustainiog they need no
gratuities from the National treasury and should
' have none. Let tbe Steamships rot in the port
of New York, if their owners so will, but place
no additional tax upon the diffasion of intelli
gence and the general correspondence of the
country.
National Sunday School Convention*
A National Sanday School Teachers* Conven
tion assembled in Philadelphia on Tuesday, tbe
22d, which was organized by the election of
lion. Joe. Pollock, ex-Governor of Pennsylva
ciu, as President, The Convention is folly at
tended and the business before it important.
The following is the list of subjects proposed
for dibC'J&sion:
I. Is the Sanday School competent, as an
agency for bringing the entire youth of our
ecptmtry under tne saving infloence of the Gos
pel t
ti. Should not erery teacher avail himself of
the facility of access to families which his posi
tion piveshim, by visiting bis scholars regular
ly at tbeir own homes; and thus not only in
crease his influence with tbe child, but secare
ibe co-operation ot tbe parent?
S. What should Sabbath School Teachers be
wiliinj; to accept as a test of their faithfulncr* 1
. 4. Wlmt are tbe requisite qualifications of u
poud Sunday School Teacher? What are some
of the particulars in which failure is most fre
quent?
5. Is not tbe sentiment of tbe Church and of
Sabbath School Teachers, in regard to tbe early
convtrHiica cf children, far below Bible history
and B:b!e teaching j and ought not teachers in
all their infractions to keep this object eteadily
io vintv. as the great and only truly satisfactory
tueir labor.
6. Would not the organization of Snnday
School Teachers' Associations add greatly to
tbe illi.:iency of tbe system* and what is the
best means of organizing them ?
7. Wbat are the qualifications of ft good Su
perintendent?
8 Uowcanwe remedy the great deficiency
throughout our tchools in tho matter of com*
the Scriptures to memory ?
9. IJow fcbail we promote the spirit of benev
olence among children, bath witb reference to
prftFent obj .cts and habits of future beneficence ?
10. How can we secure tbemembcrsbipofour
churches ihut cordial encouragement, pecuniary
t-uppon, cud personal service which tbey owe to
Sanaay Schools?
11. How far are Mission Sunday Schools con
tributing to tbo evangelization of oar destitute
population, and what can be done to give a far
ther increase to their efficiency, and bow far,
and ia what way may such schools be made
more terviccable in elevating and improving
tbe social condition of the families represented
in theni ?
IS. How csn a larger attendance of our grown
up youth of both sexes be secured ?
The consideration of these questions occupied '
a large share of the second day; and no decis
ion of any one of them bad been reached at the
hour of adjournment. Thcro ore many distin
guished clergymen of all denomination in at
tendance.
Commerce of the Lake*.
Pending tho motion in Committee of the
Whole on Friday, en the Army Appropriation
bill, that tbe appropriation of 175,000 for the
snrvey of the northern lakes be stricken out,
Ur. Hatch, of New Vork, said that there were
over one thousand six hundred vessels navi
gating the northwestern lakes, of which tbe ag
grcgate burden was over four hundred thousand
tons. They were manned by overtbirteen thou
c;md seamen, navigating over five thousand
miles of lake and river coast, and transporting
over six hundred millions of exports and im
ports; being greater than tbe foreign exports 1
and imports of the United States.
The Opposition Nomination in Ken
tucky.
Tbe Opposition State Convention of Ken- <
tuckr, that met at Louisville yesterday, nomi- •
nated Jofbua F. Bell for Governor, Alfred H. 1
Allen for Lieutenant-Governor, and James liar- 1
Inn for Attorney General.
Tbe Convention conld not have put forth a
bntcr ticket, or one embodying alareer amount 1
of ability and popularity. Joshua F. Bell is a 1
statesman of tbe Whig School, and was never a '
rcembtr cf the American party, though be has, i
for several years, earnestly co operated with it
in opposition to tbe Democracy. He baa large
experience in public affairs, is popular in bis !
address, and is as formidable an antagonist on 1
the hustings as any Democrat need desire.
Alfred Allen, of Breckenride, is, like Mr.
Beil, an old Wbig, and will prove an efficient 1
! colleague in tbe canvass. He is better known <
I abrotd as tbe Attorney for the Commonwealth <
in tbe Matt Ward trial, that csme off a few
years ago, at Elizabethtown, on which occasion
he proved a foeman worthy of tbe steel of Crit- £
tenden, Ex Gov. Helm, and Tom Marshall. i
Mr. liarlun has been Attorney-General twice
before, we beijeve, and stands a good chance of ,
fiiling the office tbo third time. *
The whole ticket has sore of Wbiggery than 1
Americanism in it, and will make a powerful t
appeal to the old spirit that made Kentucky tbe
uoiwerving supporter of tbe Whig faith for
j twenty yeara.—Louu Eanleg Stat. 1

g. On Wednesday morning, February 2Sd, the
l r whole city of St. Joseph was astir, and every
body seemed animated with the enthusiasm
which the important occasion was so well c&lcu
lated to inspire. Delegations had arrived from
l ' St Louis, Qaincy, Hannibal, Palmyra, and
other towns, and the country waa largelr repre
i" sented by people on horseback, and by every
d sort of conveyance at all adapted to the seas of
•g mud which tbey were forced to navigate: At
it half-past nine o'clock, the procession, composed
>t of the different delegations—the Quincy Blues,
ie citizens of St. Joseph, wagons, carta, drays,- etc.,
etc., with boncers 'and bands of music, moved
' Q through tbe principal streets, presenting a fine
appearance. The procession, preceded by an
e express wagon containing "the waters" to be
l * mingled with the Missouri, finally assembled on
the levee at the foot of Francis street. As tbe
is Qaincy Bines were obliged to leave in tbe after*
T noon train, Capt. Prentiss tfsked to introduce
N. Busbnell, Eiq, of Qaincy, who, on tbeir Se
half, returned thanks for tbe courtesies extended
to them, and referred to the interesting occasion
n which bad brought them all together, in a nest
S and appropriate speech,
i- CoL Thompson, of St. Joseph, then introduced
t- Mr. Joseph Bobidoax, the founder of the city,
t- He selected the site on which it stands for a
n trading post with the Indians, in 1799,
while tbe territory of Louisiana was
'f etill the property of France. He settled
8 here permanently inlßo3. Tbe Platte purchase,
■» embracing the site of St. Joseph, was made
>, from tbe Sac and Foz Indians, by the United
0 States in 1886, and the territory was added to
tbe State of Missouri. Mr. Bobidoux, in 1843,
'• entered his quarter section and'obtained his ti
;• tie from the United States just forty years after
r be had settled upon it. Col. Thompson also in*
trodoced Mr. Joseph Cohen, one of tbe found
a era of St. Louis. The presence of these veter
r ans, looking hale and hearty, tbongb far ad.
2 vanced in years, added much to the interest of
e the exercises.
3 THK MINGLIXG Of Til WATB&S.
e After tbe introduction of these venerable
1 men, Col. Thompson commenced his address by
* referring to tbe remarkable facta which were
i- part and parcel of this celebration. The saluta.
e tions of tbe Atlantic, and tbe lakes, of the llli
r nois and tbe Mississippi were presented to the
river of tbe Mountains. Tbeir waters bad been
e gathered here from thonsanda of miles to min-
Y gle in joyous greeting. That meeting was a fit
y libation to the genius of tbe age. Of that ge«
r uius the locomotive was tbe liviog exponent,
t- .and though it might rest here for a season, it
i- was simply gathering strength to leap over the
i Rocky Mountains, and would stop only on the
r shores of tbe Pacific. That great fact would be
11 realised much sooner than the most sanguine
* would now dare to predict.
e CoL Thompson then took the waters of the
i- Atlantic and mingled them with those of the
o Missouri. Those of the Mississippi followed,
e with which he baptised the Missouri her great
a est child. He then took tbe waters of tbe lakes,
f the great central seas of the continent, and
e threw tbem into the Missouri, following them by
f those of tbe placid Illinois, a sister stream of a
t great and prosperousßijiter State. The speech of
0 CoL Thompson was in excellent taste, and the
1 entire ceremony was handsomely done.
t Thomas Cohen, Esq., then made a few re
b marks, saying that he h&d bunted the buffalo
and dodged to escape the Indian in all the rich,
b beautiful country by which we were surrounded.
Hon. Willard P. Hall, of St. Joseph, was then
introduced, and, in the main, made a capital
speech. He referred to the completion of the
- Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad as-a most im
-3 portant era in tbe.history of the valley oftheUis
' soori. The traveler eanjnow go from St. Joseph to
* St Louis, heretofore a journey of several days, in
" eighteen hours; to Chicago, the Qaeen City of
the Lakes, in twenty-six, and to New-Vork and
most of the cities on the seaboard in sixty hours.
This was truly a woaderfal fact, even in this a2S
[ of wonders. The speaker then gave a short his
tory of the Hannibal and St. Joseph railway;
of western emigration; and of the settlement and
progress of north-western Missonri, all receiv
ed with great satisfaction by the entire audi
ence. He deemed it bis duty, however, to ex*
1 press his deep anxiety for tbe welfare of the
Union, and as usual with politicians sec himself
vigorously at work to save itbnt as Mr. Hall
bad doubtless acquired this habit while a mem
-1 bcr of Congress, be was cheerfully forgiven for
the digression. As a whole, his speech was able
and eloquent, and received with great applause.
At tbe conclusion of Mr. Hall's speech, the
chairman gave a sentiment complimentary to
the city ot Chicago, to which Alderman Bross
w&s called upon to respond. In behalf of the
members of the delegation, he presented the
congratulations of the city oi Chicago to St. Jo
seph. We bad been accustomed to point onr
children to the records ot tbe past to find a his
tory of great achievements, bat the future his
torian would regard this aB the age of wonders.
We bad been introduced here to the founder of
Su Joseph, and to one of the earliest settlers of
St. Louis. We had gentlemen among our guests
who had seen Chicago, now a city of
a hundred and thirty thousand inhabitants, a
mere trading post among the Indians. Great
cities and a great empire had grown up under
the observation of those who were here ming
ling in these festivities. All history cannot fur
ni&h such examples of human progress. When
the speaker first earn* to Chicago, little more
than ten years ago, there was not a single mile
of railway leading to or from the city. Now the
Chicago system of oompleted railways numbers
four thousand five hundred and sixty-nine miles.
The State of Illinois, containing in 1650 only
ninety-five miles of railway, now had two thou
sand seven hundred and seventy-five miles.
Among these we had always regarded the Chi
cago, Burlington and Qaincy as one of our most
important roads, and the citizens of Chicago re
joiced that tbe Hannibal and St. Joseph, vir
tually an extension of the Qaincy and Cbicogo
line, bad been extended to tbe Missouri Onr
trip had brought us through a country unequal
led in richness and beauty; the very garden of
tbe Mississippi Valley. It was fitting that the
Chicago delegation consisted largely of the
members of the Board of Trade. They repre
sented the great interests of Commerce, which
next to our holy religion had tbe most powerful
infloence to elevate onr race; to unite all man
kind in one brotherhood of peace, prosperity
and progress. Commerce would extend, in a
few years at most, this line of railway to the
Pacific, and tho genins of America would in ef
foct, realise the splendidconceptionofyonrown
Benton by oarving one lofty peak of the socky
Mountains into a statue of Colnmbns, and the ,
opposite into one of our own immortal Wash
ington. while the commerce of the world was ;
rolling at tbeir feet. (
Hero an approaching steamer gavo a wild <
piercing scream, and as it ceased the speaker paid
he couVl not pretend to compete with such a ,
voice; but his friend* Mr. Tan North wick, the
president, and Mr. Hall of the Chicago, Burlin
gton and Quincy, ro<l Ur. Hunt, of tbe Hannibal
and St. Joseph Railroads wielded a power greater ,
than Fulton, for as a means of travel, thousands ;
of men still live who have seen tbe steamboat in-
\anted, become the admiration of the world, and, ,
a? a mean- of rapid transit from one portion of the .
eonntry to tbe other, pass away forever. Tbe
6peak*r referred playfully to the opinion which
some of b'B hearers mifbt have formed of the citi- j
zens of Chicago. He assured them that we had ,
come with no covetous or unworty desires towards <
the more sable portions of the pODpIe of Missouri; j
but there was one thfrs of which ho wgnld gird
tbem special notice. These Yankees, if they did
not keep a sharp look opt, would steal all their *
best and prettiest girls. [Laughter and applause ] f
They were terrible fellows in this respect, aud fi
would bear very close watching, but they would j
bo an settle down, improve these magnificent lands
and in the end, make the best of citUens. In con- j
: elusion he gave " Health, prosperity, and heav
en's richest blessings to the citizens of SU
Joseph." ,
Mr. Seay of St. Louis, and Mr. Hatch of Hannf* i
bal, each responded to a .compliment to their re- g
spectlve cities, in an appropriate and excellent c
speech. Dr. Dyer of Chicago, was also
called to tbe stand, and convulsed the i
audience with some of his best hits, winning 8
golden opinions from all who heard him. At the t,
close of his remarks the company adjourned for 0
dinner. t
EXCTB£IO>'B, INCIDENTS, ETC. P
Dinner being over a large nnmber of the stron
ger aod guesti accepted an invitation from the T
gentlemanly Captain of tbe St. Joseph and Bel- £
moat steamer to visit Belmont. During tbe ex- >
cur&ion speeches were made by Gen. Pomeroy and
others, and a capital time generally was enjoyed.

Notwithstanding the utmost efforts of all or
nearly all the best men in the Territory, tbe bill
> for abolishing slavery in Kansas did not finally
i pass in such a shape as to effectually do its works
f The late House of Kepresentatives was decisive
-1 ly in favor of an enactment which would sweep
slavery from our borders without days of grace,
but the Council elected more than a year ago,
) by a minority of the Free State vote, defeated it.
We are done, now and forever, with the demor
» alizsd and swindling H Free State partj"—ita
frauds upon the friends of freedom, its pcrver*
sions, its Minneola thefts, its old hunkerism
and its pro slaveryism. A call has already been
issued for a Territorial Republican Convks*-
Tiostobe held at Osawatomie on the 19:h of
May next, 'J for the organisation of a party
" based on the platform of principles adopted by
"the National Republican Convention held in
"Philadelphia, in June, 1558." The call is
signed by ell our leading men, by those who 1
have the confidence of the people, and who will
be able to carry the movement through to a cer
tain triumph. It will sweep the Territory, from '
end to end, at the first election. 1
We had a slight renewal of the Fort Scott ex
citement a few days since. A poise cruising '
around the southern part of the Territory with 1
a kind of " letter of marque," arresting here and 1
robbing there, arrived injour city with four
prisoners-or rather, they had got wind of tbe
passage of the Amnesty bill, and released their
prisoners a few miles south of Lawrence. A 1
large crowd gathered around the new comers
who were headed by Marshal Campbell The !
latter took fright and started off at a pretty
lively pace—the crowd at their heels. After a (
run of half a mile or so, ail parties came to a
stand, and Campbell k Co. were disarmed and 1
brought back to town. After some explanation [
and speech-making, in which Gov. Medarypar
ticipated they were released and started home- v

j most every object of interest in the city was
* visited yesterday forenoon, and as the day was
remarkably fin#, we were all delighted with our
/ rambles.
St. Joseph hu improved very rapidly within
the last three or four years, and is now a city of
seven thousani inhabitants. It has a number
of fine business blocks, built of brick, which
a. would not do discredit to any city. The Odd
n . Fellows' and Masonic Hall is truly a splendid
p. building, and a very large hotel, costing some
it hundred tbonand dollars, is enclosed, and we
p. believe nearty finished. The city stands on a
;n plateau, sone fifty feet or more above the river
eB surrounded on the east by high hills, a
e f spur from which divides the town nearly in the
to centre. The court house is built upon this hill
rs and from the cupola the sight is truly msgnifi
•d cent On either lide is the city, the streets filled
at with citizens and strangers moving about in all
bo directions. In the rear of the business streets
nestling upon the sides and in some cases crown
0. ing the summits o! the beautiful hills that sur
ie round the city are the neat and often elegant
li- residences of the people, while in front, at yonr
i a feet, rolls the muddy, ever-boiling current of
g . the Missouri Directly opposite is the to«n of
Elwood, whoie neatly painted housesspeak wel l
of for the thrift and enterprise of its inhabitants*
r> while far io ihe distance are the beautiful hills
0 f and high rolling prairies of Kansas. If the
tourist is in the mood to re fleet upon the im*
0 f mense extent oi the valley of the angry river
of at his feet; to trace up its windings for two
ie thousand miles to its springs, among the snow
0f capped summits of the Racky Mountains; and
gt withal to combine the teachings of his judg.
m ment with the conceptions of his imagination#
;e and contemplate this mighty valley, as it scon
|e will be, filled with millions of intelligent, enter-
Q f prising, virtuous freemen, he will have themes
t. of suggestive thought that will well repay a
visit to tho Missouri.
i 6 The busiaees of the city, and the character
and appeannce of the people who were throng.
a ing the streets wero matters of much interest to
ic n8 aW » and «pecially to those of our older citi
zens, who were members of oar party. Men
snd women on horse-back wero in town from
the viciniy, apparently fitting out for a
Lq Western toar. Covered wagons were moving
alongthe streets, and eTerything seemed to in
dicate that Bl Joseph is a frontier city where
Io emigrants prepare to penetrate further into the
.j rich prairies that lie towards the setting sun.
Oar fellow-citizen, S. F. Gale, Esq., remarked
that St. Joseph yesterday was a facsimile of
lm what Chicago was in 1836. Chicago nt that
,y time was scarcely larger than St. Joseph is now,
2„ audit certainly had not so many large and sub*
a stantial buildings. In twenty.three years Chi
cago has beeeme a city of 130,000 inhabitants.
t. Considering the rich country that surrounds St.
e Joseph, though of coarse its commercial post
re tion cannot be compared with that of Chicago,
I in twenty-three years we shall expect to see this
1. city contain at least from thirty to fifty thou*
, r ssnd inhabitants.
j. In the afternoon, by invitation of the owners
y of the large steam ferryboat, our party took an
n excursion to Belmont, six miles from St. Joseph,
e in the Territory of
1 KAXSA3.
We were fortunate in having the comrany of
Gen. Pomeroy, of Atchison, una geveroi other
gentiemen trom Kansas and St. Joseph, who
entertained us with many iacidents illustrating
the early history and settlement of the country.
From the high bluffs in the rear ot the town we
could see Troy, the county seat of Doniphan
Coanty, twenty miles west, and the town of Bon.
phan eighteen miles from the Missouri. The
beautiful rolling prairies fixed the impression
upon the minds of the company that this is
ruly a •'goodly land." After feasting oar eyes
j ta the fall, our company assembled and gave
three times three cheers for Kansas, loud, Jong
and thrilling, and thre* for Cjen. Fotaeroy, who
: acknowledged the compliment by giving us a
most cordial welcome.
Belmont is a new town and its enterprising
' projectors are determined to make it a principal
' slartiDg point for the Western emigration for
* the plains and the new gold fields. It is well
situated at the base of snd upcu the bluffs at
, the point where the Missouri River leaves the
x Kansas side to run across the bottom lands to
} St. Joseph.
We wero pleased to have the company daring
f the d-y of Mr. Geo. B. Hog®, a con of our fel-
T low citix&n, A. H. lioge, Esq, who has for some
T time been a resident of St. Joseph. He is doing,
t aa we learn, a very successful lumber business,
j bringing bis stock by caaal and river from Chi
j cago. It is really a marvel in modern commerce
I that the pineries of Michigan and Northern
Wisconsin should be laid under contribution to
L build up a city on the Missouri, fire hundred
miles above St. Louis.
The guests were wisely permitted to spend
, the evening in quiet, affording time for rest and
' better preparation to enjoy the festivities yet in
< store for them. B.
Where to get Seed Wheat*
JAMSTiLur. Wis., Fib. 24,159.
Editor* Pre is aad Tribune:
We notice in your paper of this date, under
the bead of " Commercial," an article in regard
to "Seed Wheat," and we think your remarks
on that very important subject are sound.
It is a matter of the very first importance to
the West that great pains should be taken in
procuring Seed Wheat of the v«ry choicest
kinds, and thereby averting a recurrence of
short crop, and " stump tail" at that, which has
been the case this last harvest. We think the
farmers throughout the Northwest do not afiix
saflicient importance to the changing of seed*
We do not deny but the weather was one of the
causes of the crop failure last year, but think
the farmer is more to blame than either coil,
weather or wbaat. We know of several farmers
in this immediate vicinity who, last year, sowed
wheat brought from Canada within one or two
years, and have got to learn that any of it did
not give a big yield. We know of "Canada
Club" imported and sowed last spring, which
yielded over thirty bushels to the acre, and of
"Scotch Fife," imported two years ago, and
sowed last spring, which yielded thirty.five bush*
els per acre.
But what we started to say was this: Robert
Gerrie, Esq., of London, C. W., shipped last
fall from Btyfield, Huron County, C. W., by the
schooner " Sarah Hibbard," a cargo of the
choicest varieties of wheat, for seed, consisting
of " Canada Club," " Scotch Fife," '* Dundee,"
etc.; we have seen this wheat, and find it a very
superior article indeed. It is for sale by Hslli- j
well, Bro., Milwaukee, Wis., and B. F. Pixisy & }
Co., Janesville, Wis. Any orders addressed to
either of these parties will recAiva prompt at- '
tention. ,
The foregoing remarks were suggested onsee* I
ing the article on " Seed Wheat," asking where '
it might be found. j

The Flood on the Ohio. c
[Froa the Marietta tatelOseneer. S3ll 1
The water commenced rising here on Thnrs* !
day, the 17tb, and reached ita maximum height 1
last night about midnight. The rise above low I
water is not far from forty feet, making the depth *
of water in the channel at the culmination of the J
flood, forty-two or three feet. The back water *
over flowed several of the lower streets, and came
up into the lower stories of a few houses. Front £
street was under water from the upper bridge to
nearly opposite the Post Office. The ssme back £
water cut off Second, Third and Fourth streets, f 1
so that the only means of communication, be*
tween the Point and the town, on and beyond a
Putnam street, was by boats. The gas works *
were submerged and several thousand bushels 0
of coke were ioated c£ The back water from
the Muskingum came up across Front, Second °
and Third streets, between Putnam, Scamznell e
and Wooster streets, to the rear of the Baptist r *
Church. w
We have not been able to learn particularly of
the amount of damage done. A good manycel* °
lars huve been flooded, but tho rue of the water P'
was so gradual as tofcive time for the removal of -A
perishable goods. We presume the chief irjary * {
done is to buildings trom the presence of water £ r
in them. Along the enaller streams, consider
able loss has been sustained in the wishing avay
ot bridges and fenees.
The meteorological report, published else*
where today, shows the amount of water that
has fallen dnriogthe week ending last night It
is nearly four and a half inobes in five days,
which is an unusual quantity in so short a space fn
of time. hs
Everything in the shape of a boat is brought
into requisition to-day for the conveyance of er
passengers and pleasure parties. The day is foi
very mild and still, and ladies and gentlemen
are making the most of it in the way of boat th
rides. 80;

K searcli has been carried out iu a re

i charged clerk of Pine, who came here with charg

- forwarded from Chicago a charge against Maitiu
i of hjviug purloined valuable official pipers from

• search-warrant to ferret out the same. It hap
pened that while the officers were executing tbe
i warrant, Mr. Fitch, 0. S. Dlitrict Attorney from
f Illinois called to ate Martin and sent his card up
. to Martin's room. He was invited to walk up, and
i complying, found the officers at their work. Mar-
I tin alleges they read private letters from his wife.
[ Mr. Filch says he kuew nothing of what was go
i ing on before he got to the room, and refused to
, t*ke any part ia it after he got there. Mr. Chand
Senate, and a friend to Marlin and Douglas was
present, and jocoslr invited the officers to search
t his room, iu tbe s ime hotel, saying that the mis
sing papers might be there. At the same time he
[ invited Mr. Fitch to come also. He went, and it
[ seems that tbe same searching process was gone

_ charge Mr. Fitch with being a party to it. Ue
. says he had nothing to do with the proceeding,

tee consists ot two Republican?, two Democrats

all but the name. Therefore the Committee can

evidence, and that will contain abundint proof ot*
the corruption and bribery attending ulinavaldis

k and Secretary or War had a guilty knowledge of
the trauduleat practises ferteied out by the

his old assostates. He has lost bis election, and
l will probably do all in his dower to screen Sear,
ing. The lacts in this case are simply these.
Two Virginians, named Thomson aud Fitzhugh,
were employed by Mr. Cullom, when Clerk of
the Home, to lurnish upholstery aud furniture.
They produced a bill ot $9,000, whioh the Be.

It came up before the Demoaratie committee of
the present Congress, who referred it to Sear
ing. He neglected to act upon it until near tbe
close oi tbe last session. Fitzhufth Fays that he
then went to him vnd offered Searing S6OO if he
would report the sccount to the committee with
« recommendation to pay it. Searing agreed to
do it; bat reported only $6,000 as due, which
the committee ordered paid, aud then Searing
demanded his S4OO. Fitibugh refused to pay
until he got his money on the account. This
Carter, tbe disbursing clerk, refused to settle,
because there was no appropriation, which was
undoubtedly tbe fact, and the matter should
have gone before tbe House. Tbe claim was
then assigned to Thomson, who declared pub
licly that tbe refusal to pay tbe account waa
because his late partner had not paid Searing
the S4OO bribe which he had offered him. Un
der this implied threat of exposure Carter agreed
to pay the money, proved that Thomson would
in writing exonerate Searing from the imputa
tion of having demanded a bribe. Thia Thom

I think I can assure yoa that the President
has resoljed to apply the veto to the bill voting
donaiiona of public lands to certain agricultu
ral colleges, and also, that be ia bustile to tbe
homestead bill. If that great measure should
pass the Senate, it is destined to die of a Pre
sidential negative. Tbe course of tbe particu
lar friends ot the Administration in both
brancheß clearly indicates tbe determination of
the President to apply the knile to these two
great reforms. Upon what grounds he will base
nis objections to the agricultural bill, I can
hardly divine, unless ha aasumea the ultra doc
trine of the Southern extremes.
Mr. Senator Iverson is named as the disunion
candidate for President by an Alabama paper,
and Mr. William Lowndes Yancey for Tioe Pre
aident, on the same side. This indication,
tbongb earning from a single newspaper, ia sug
gestive of the purpose of the fire-eaters for
IS6O. They have two strings to their bow; they
will either insist upon the endorsement of a
Congressional code for the protection ot slavery
iu the Terriiorics. or withdraw from tbe Con
vention at Charleston, should tbia tribute be
darned them; and if a Republican ia elected,
they will nu>ke an issue against him ou the
ground that tbe hour for disunion haa come.
Mr. John Mitchell, the great Irish patriot, now
in Washington, from wnence he publishes bis
journal, is the central organ of this movement,
and 1 am told does not hesit.te to advo
cate tbe overthrow of the Union, should the
demands of such men as Iverson and Yancey be

The thirty-million bill, for the acqoision of

weaker every day. A number of tbe Southern
papers continue to denounce and ridicule iL
This may be set down as tbe last Administration
failure. Another movement will be made to
morrow in the Senate to compel a vote upon it,
which will be the last, iu my opinion, during
this session. Ur. Slidell is said to be very
much incensed at the refusal of the Senate to

Pounds of (Gunpowder at one Chnrue
—HuildingsFolverized—Etlectsof the
.Explosion.
Oa Friday morning, about 9 o'clock, the good
people ot this vicinity were startled by a terri- •
tic explosion, which shook every building like
an earthquake, shattering glass iu stores and
dwelling nouses. It was seemingly tbe voice
of one of the 44 seventeen thunder*." The Pow
der Mills! was t e first exclamation, as people
thronged to the street. Looking northeastward
ly, a heavy shaft or column ot smoke was seen
shooting upward and falling over in fleecy rolls,
aa Vesuvius might look at ita summit, iu an
eruption. Even at the distance of a mile and a
half, and partly hidden by tbe hills, it was a
spectacle.
The drying house of the Austin Powder Co.'a
Works, situated in tbe valley of the Little Cuy. 1
ahega, about a mile east ot the limits of Akron, 1
; and near tbe line of Tallmadge, had gone op. <
In our village of course there was instant and >
intense excitement, for sueb exploaion com
monly involves tbe loss ot life. Whether any
—how many—who—were questions nobody
could answer. There waa " mounting in hot
haste"—hundreds, on foot, ou horseback, in -
wagons, hurried to tbe spot, to aee with their }
own eyes, and ha natifiHedl
The drying house had dissppeared. The spot *
where it had atood waa a blackened bole in the
ground; no remnant of the atructure on its site.
Overanarea olTseviral hundred yards radius e
were strewn splinters of tbe almost pulvarised 1
lumber and hundreds of broken empty kegs
from the warehouse. A tree some eigbt or nine
inches in diameter, twiated off at the height of
perhapa fifteen feet, aa one polls a roae from .
the bush. Another large tree ia aaid to have
disappeared. No trace of trunk, bougba, stump
or roots discoverable. The buildings in the
neighborhood (there were none near) were aU
injured. Windowa broken, doora unhinged,
roofe lifted—a achool-honse upon the bill some
forty rods off was, we are told, pretty much de
molished. The machine or wheel-mill of the &
Company unroofed. j*
Hapnily no person was hurt. CoL Sidney «
Edgerion waa passing along the road driving a E
baggy and saw tbe building on fire. He gave
tha alarm, of course, and urged hia horse to hia B
full apeed. Tbe workmen took shelter in eel- **
lara and awaited the event. It was five minutes
after the alarm before tbe explosion. One man **
who was wheeling two barrtU of potedtr from 14
one ahop to another, at a distance of not more ~
than an hundred yards from the drying house, £
did not hear tbe alarm. Hia barrels did not
explode, and he suffered no serious injury. He
remarked to us half an hour after the explosion,
that "hit head ached tomt /"
CoL Edgerton got acroaa the creek and at a
distance of comparatively aafety before the ex
plosion. He describes the sight as magnificent.
Another person who witnessed it from the hills
says tbe umbrella-like canopy of smoke and
fragments, lurid with tbe glare of the fissh, waa J
be thought, about five acre* in ctiait.—Atron "
Beacon.
