te Inquire into the expediency of repealing so much
of the act for the organisation of the Territorial
uoreruujeuis oi new siexico ana utan as require all
lairs passed by those Territories to be submitted to
longreaa for approval or rejection.
Mr. liale said it wai not in order to proceed to
legislative business prior to tbe organization of tbs
Mr. Pugh stated that he desired to reply to the re
marks of the Senator of Georgia, ( Mr. Iveraon) which
be made the other day, and he cared not whether he
spoke on the resolution or on the point of order. He
desired to defend the Democracy for the oharge ef un
soundness, which did not come with good grace from
moee in tne puuiit, woo nau not none o mucn ior
the narly aa tbe Northerners. He anoSa of tha diffi
culty In theNortb. of battling against sectionalism
and defending tbe rights of the South. Tbey never
elected the S.uator from Georgia to be a judge of the
soundness of their Democracy, He repudiated the
sentiment that ihe position of Senator Douglas on
Territorial rights waa akin so the Wllmot Proviso or
Anti-veinocratic, ana read irom aapaecb In tbs Con
gressional Globe, showing that Cas sustained the
same position.
Mr. Pugh also quoted from tbe speech delivered by
Mr. Iversonlu the House sloven years ago, which
was aa strong in support of non-intervention views
a.i Usee's famous Nicholson letter or Douglas's Free
port speech. He referred to the instructions sent by
the Georgia Legislature to her Benatora Vhen the
Kansaa-Nebraaka bill waaup in favor of non-intervention,
and he said he stood on the Georgia plat
form. He proceeded to reply to the remarks of Air.
Gwln that he understood the Eanasi bill when he
voted, as expounded by Douglas. He would never
have given that vote by laying that Mr. Gwin did
not vote of his own notiou, but was Instructed by the
California Legislature to give that vote, and that the
Legislature wrote down for him in tthat inatructlon
wimt it tnoiigbt tne siantaa-Nebraaaablll meant.
Mr. Gwin 1 voted before the instructions got
Mr. Pugh I do not suppose the Senator pretends

His Legislature is. Now, having read the non-inter
vention piattorm, 1 propose to reau tne squatter sov
ereignty platform of California. Ha theuwintonto
remark, that this odious epithet, siuatter sover
eignty, which has been used to frighten the people
irom meir property, was inventsu ior tue oenent oi
California, and wai applied to her in the formation
of her State Constitution, in which Mr. Gwin him
self took an active part. The Lecompton Constitu
tion was squatter sovereignty. He did not see any
afo ground upon which the adrocatea of tbe Le
compton Conatitution can occupy for one moment
Tne doctrine ot or, iverson 11 to oe me uocirine ot
tbe Democratic party. Having quoted the senti
ments or the California Legislators while the Kaniaa
Bill waa up, Mr. Pugh then proceeded to read tbe
uomoorrtio piatrorm auoptea in uaiuornia since tne
last sBMSion of Congress, which is almost literally
copied from the Uhio platform drawn np by Mr.
pugn mmaeii.
hestated what he understood the Kansas-Nebraska
bill meant, adopting for that purpote the language of
tne presiaent, woosignea tne 0111, proving nis own
interpretation aa found in the Message of. January
21,1816. He also quoted the resolutions adopted by
the Florida Legislature in Decsmbsr, 1847, In support
of his position. He said that his object was to snow
that varions attempt are being made contrary to the
opinions formerly entertained by the Legislature of
the Southern Btates, to breakthrough the principle!
of the compromise of 1850, and to break through the
covenant of the Kansas bill, and on that text to
preach eermons on the soundness or unsoundness of
the Northern Democracy. He quoted from Mr.
Gwin' speech at Grass Valley, Cel., where it Is
ar(i that Mr. lionslas waa denoted from the Chair
manship of the Territorial Committee on acconnt of
bis View on tne jvansae uui. xie wouia pot siana
nn tare to defend Mr. Douglas, who was an able
speaker for himself. If he waa expelled from tbe
Committee lor that reason tney mignc inereny oe
compelled to expel ninety-nine out of a hundred ef
tbe Democracy is every siave-aoiaing state, it was
Ln..i a niiaation of individual, but of nrincinle.
and instead of assailing a man who waa absent it
would be more maniy to uo aa mr. jtveraon. ana
arraign the entireparty.
He could see nothing in Ihe Lecompton cast that
ought to divide the Democrats, or to maks it neces
sary to make e change in the Committee on Terri
toriea; but the faotof tbe case seemed to show that
Mr. Douglas was not removed ior mat cause Alter
he bad made his speech in the Senate, denouncing
the Lecompton Constitution and taking issue with
the Admlniatratioei and almost the entire body of
the Democratic Senators North and South, tbe
Senate proceeded again to put him at the head of
the Territorial Committee, and he remained there
until the Lecompton controversy was dead and
buried. Now the avowal is that lie was not removed
for that course, bnt became he had the misfortune
to entertain opinions which are entertained
almost the entire Democratic body in the Nortb.
would appeal tonis oretnren in tne nortuern mates,
.harhnr thev refloffnice thia a a test of Democratic
fellowship. If, as the Senator from California has
ploclaimed, you are parties to thia act of decapita
tion, do you mean to nave it go forth to the country
that whoever entertain these opinion is nnflt to be
a member ef the Democratic party?
Mr. Alee, of M inn. I was a party to the transac
tion and I uphold it.
Mr. Pugb went on to refer to the osage of the
Senate on the subject of Committees. Finl-Never
to displace a Senator without bis conssnt, and
second never to promote any one else over him. He
was soon going out of the Senate, and eould frankly
declare that this usage was intolerably bad.
It was a ussge wnicn nas operated to give tne sen
ator from slave-holding Slates the chair on every
single committee cantrolung public bueiuess. The
Senator from Illinois was tbe only exception, and
wasderapitated now. He thought the simplest way
out of all thia controversy, was to do justice and put
down all tnB attempts irom one section oi tne
Union or the other, to disturb the platform of the
Democratic party. He regretted the excitement pre
vailing at present on the slavery question, Tbe pro
ceedings lu I he House of Representatives, aa well as
in some of the State Legislatures, ought to admon
ish u that we have fallen on evil times. We hear
defiance and threats from one quarter and tha other,
which are fraught with danger to Ibis glorious
Mr. Tveraon said he would lake some fntnra occa
sion to respond to those remarks of Mr. Pngh wbiob
were applicable to himself, and also to ventilate some
other subjects which had been touched upon by the
Senator from Ohio. '
Mr. uwtn expiameu tne action oi tne uauinrni
Legislature; reference to those resolutions referred

cats of Senator Douglas he said it waa the doty oi
that Senator to ne nere wnen tne senate was organ
ised, and he also contended that it waa right tbat
the majority of the Democratic Senator, who were
the majority of this body, aud wbo were responsible
for its organisation, shonld no longsr place a man at
tbe head of the Territorial Committee holding opin
ions In direct conflict with the majority ou the sub
ject of Territorial power.
Slllf IVRini iu.uhibi. rui, Mm Willi
gard to ninety-nine out of a hundred of the Democ
racy and every qon-alaveholding State agreeing with
Mr. Douglas, Mr. Gwln said Mr. Pngh might spsak
for Ohio, but that waa not the doctrine of California.
That question bad been tried befoie the people by
an overwhelming majority. Those who agree with
Douglas bave been condemned. The maintninence
of that dootrice was dangerous to the Democratic
party. A long colloquial debate ensued between
Messrs. Gwin and Pngh, in which Mr. Davis also
participated, presenting no points of pecial interest.
Mr. Hale hoped tbat, inasmuch as the question of
order be raised, this morning bad boon elucidated,
tbe Chair would now decide that point, '
Mr. Lane, of Cregon, desired to any a few words on
Ihe question which had beetbup, If Mr. Hale would
Mr. Hafe-1 will withdraw anything tho Senator
from Oregon desires, lLaughter.1
Mr. Lane remarked II ws not bis purpose to pre
scribe rules or lay down a platform of principles for
the Democratic party. He had nothing to do with
tho case of Douglas, and he had no doubt tbat there
were many good Democrats In tbe Northern Btates
who did not agree upon this question of Territorial
right with the majority of tho party.
He would not say they were not good Democrats
because they disagree with him, nor would b say
that not holding the views of Mr. Douglas would
have been a reason for him to oppose that gentleman
a the Chairman of Committee on Territorial. He
waa sorry to find hi own views on the Territorial
question differed very materially from Mr. Pugh's.
He held that a Territory is the common property
tbe whole people, in which every Stet.iiu the Union
hsa equal rights, and that while in a Territorial slate
tbe people could by unfriendly legislation or by
ayitem of unequal taxation, infringe the rightaof the
people of any State of the Union.' In the case
Arlionia, for instance, which waa wall adapted
slave labor, he would submit to it that the people
the South should go there and by unfriendly legisla

""fir! Brown,' of Miislppl. oteted against the
assumption on which Mr. Pugh' resolution was
baaed, that there are no laws In New Mexico estab
lishing slavery. Slavery went there under the Con
stitution a horses, dry goods, or any other property
went, and then tbe Legislature, under a aoleoan duty
made lawa protecting ft. These law did not abolish
'klr.Tene remarked that he would, lubmit to
wrong, nor did he eeek to do any, but he only desired
to carry out the principle of securing Io every section
of the country equal right.
Mr. Brown commended Mr. Pngh' speech for
broad nationality and cononrred most heartily
many thing he had taid. It seemed to him tho
view of the different Senators could be harmonized,
and In order to do so he would give bis own position,
First, he bald that slave wer recognised aa property
under the Constitution.
Mr. Pngh-Aciording to the law of the State.
Mr. Brown Does it not go further ? Does not the
Constitution Itself recognise themes property in
broadest possible sense. Is there any ot.ler property
you can pursue Into another state and reoapture it;
Mr. Pnh The Uon.titutlon says persons held
service or labor in a Bute under the lawa thereat.

Mr. Brown -Slaves were property before the Consti

H008B- Mr. Gilmer, or K. C, caused to
(read a newspaper article commenting on an ex
tract from the Boston Tract Journal, associating hi
name offensively with Helper' book, and sarin,
among other things, that the South should look
about to see whether there were no traitor oo her
own soil Ht said that so far as thiaartlcle applied te
him, it was an infamouaand malloious fabrication,
and a falsehood from beginning to end. If he had
received Helper's book, aa charged, It must have
been through the mail, but he bad no knowledge tbat
the book ever came into his possession, certainly be
never reada solitary word of It. Krer since bs had
refused to act with the iemocrata oa Leoorapton,
wlilcb lie believed an infauioos fraud and swindle, he
bad been pursued with th ferocity of the tiger and
malignity of the devil. He repeated that tbe whole
publication, so far as it was intended to effect him, is
a lie from beginning tnend.
Mr. Singleton, or Mis., replying to Mr. Hiskman,
emphatically denied the letter's charge tbat the
South had violated all compact and compromises.
Where aud when had tbe South demanded anything
more than she was entitled to under the Conatitu
tion? Whenever aggressions bad been made they
were by the stronger on the weaker lection, and the
South wasobligod te take her present stand with a
view to preserve fraternal relations.
air. Hickman said he would reply by asking a
Mr. Singleton remarked that tbat waa a Yankee
way be did not like.
Mr. Hickman said If bs understand the history of
legislation iu 1860 and 6t, there was a demand made
from Ihe South tbat tho Missouri Compromise line
should be repealed, inasmuch aa it prevented slavery
north of 36 del. 3o;min., and waa unjust to tha South,
which went almost in a body for Its repeal, and with
tbe aid of a few Northern Representatives accom
plished It. In return they gave the North what he
(Mr. Bickman) thought waa a distinct pledge, vl:
that the question of slavery from that day forward
should csase to be agitated in Cengreas.and the set
tlement ot the whole iiueition be left to the people of
tbo Territories for their determination.
After further debate, in which strong langnage
was used by Mr. Singleton, of the intentions of the
South, he reminded the Republicans that thachlv
altic son of the Honth, J enerson Davis, kad been a
leader in the war with Mexico and tbat he again
might lead aa antif.
A cal I of the House waa then made and the eleventh

BACON'S BUILDING, December 17.
President Haseltlne In the chair. Hiautea of the
liattnsetlng read and approved.
Mr. F. U. Cary opened tne debate upon the subject:
"Doe the cultivation of the pear promise to be remu
nerative In this Iccality ' ' ' l observing tbat, from
Ihe barrenness of our mm.'' in pears, there is need
f someenlighteumeut si -t-tireassion on their cnltl
tation. He considered ti v? iivarf-pear culture had
hnen pretty thoroughly it-' i'M upon in our Society'
ome time ago. Mauy bad tuutlnued since to cnltl
vale them; they clung lo them, and both be and
they could not by any mesne say that they were an
profitable, although their profit tot market bad not
,e! been entirely decided.
lie believed that no fruit promised better In this
locality than the pear. For seven year past he ha
had hue crops, particularly from the Bartl-tt; and
Mineral ly every other year he and his neighbor nave
bad pretty full crop of those kinda wnlcb suit in this
locality. Three and a half lo four dollars per bnshsl
was obtained for good fruit of some kinds, and five
cents apiece formaay; and frequently from standard
fifteen to twenty dollars are obtained from one trot.
Mr. Allen, of Black Rock, New York, having been '
Introduced, favored the members withe few remarks
on the pear. Mr. A. regarded the pear as capricious
111 its choice of climate and toil, and even en lu the
name locality. Bom places will not produce the
fruit. They were In different situation, or even in
jpots in r nch loealltieseilbsr very enduring or short
lived, or between the two. On the Detroit Kiver,
Jto., there were seedlings three hundred years old,
1 wo feet in diameter, and bearing from thirty to forty
busbels, nearly every year. Us did not, for his own
nee, think that grafting the pear on the root a good
method. There was a certain refinement and deli
cacy in the pear wood, and he would prefer a seed
ling, and gralt branch high. If he wanted one thou
sand trees, be would not nave more than six to eight
varietlee. He would choose the Bartlett for one.
Ae there was an organic- difference in the woods of
tbe pear and tbe quince, he would not put e very vig
orous growing kind on the quince, in order to pre
vent injury from th winds, a the two weeds do not
unite vary wail with good ground, and deeply pre
pared and cultivated, be would bave ome dwarfs,
but for market he thought it would not pay. lledlrl
not think that tb pear taking root would make it
Mr. M. Kelly said that In pearcnltnre there mutt
he a proper aoll and locality. The seedling pears that
did so a ell on tbe Detroit Bivvr and elaewheis, did
not produce fruit that would bilng $1 a bushel.
Mr. Allen, of Black Bock, New Tork, then gave the
Society aome account of hi Seedling Raspberry the
Allen. He had found It by accideut-a native and
had grown it sueossfully. He planted it in roas six
feet apart, and four apait In the row. He bent to
gether and tied th top with twine, it ripen- gen
(rally pretty well, according to tbe season, w hether
inoiat or dry. It la perfectly hsrdy and five flavored,
lie bad purchased a very large Black Cap from a Mr.
Ooolittle, which baa done very well with bitu, and
he considers it a remarkably valuable berry, im
mensely large, and ten days earlier than the Allen.
The canes grow very stout and eight feet high. They
lake root from the ends of the branches.
Dr. Taylor said tbat he had botb the Allen Tied and
Ihe Allen Prolific. Tbe Allen Bed do not perfect
their fruit, bnt the Allen Prolific do. They should bo
planted together to fertilise.
On motion, it wa
"Resolved, That the Corresponding Secretary bo

cieties, upon and near this parallel or latitude, with a
view to advising them of question brought before
this society lor discussion, and asking them for the
