Dear Ttlegrapk As you me aware, 'o Juft I'oineroy yesttenlny morning, on 4)ieiiUamef 'Mv-y West." Hy a foituiiuli fcfi iiootion v i ; Ii ll.te earn nt Cincinnati, we liavo rcftfTiert our (leiiti nation in ypoil time, iin'i in lVe:itli rind biilVty, and from our horvie nt tlie Goodiilc, send greeting., The House is not in session to-dtiy, liaving adjourned over from Friday until Mml:iy next, at three o'clock. The mem bers' liavo nearly all left the city on visits to their several homes, which makes il rather lonesome; but with plenty of books Riid iileB of papers accumulated during a "week's absence, the case is not so very desperate. .,. 4. , ' . , Several measures of importance have been noted on in tho House sineo our last letter. The bill repealing the ten per cent, interest law was defeated on its third read ing, the vote standing 50 to 50, the Corp Btiuuion requiring 54 votes, to.pass a bill. It may, however,. come ujvagain, in -wotlier . form, as there re several bills still pend ing which rebite t the bame subject matter. It is nt probable, however, that any change mil be m.tde during the pies ent session. . The celebrated Militia Bill, of which some account was given in a former loiter, has been defeated. This was a favorite measure with the epauletted gentry of the State, .and was urged with great, earnestness by Captains,. Colonels, Ma jors, liencrals, &c, in. the LLju.se; but a majority of the members oould not ap preciate the intense patriotism which in npircd their war-Iiko souls, and conse quently the deeds of chivalry that would have been performed if the bill had passed will not be "did," and all for the want of those 6.mie five dollars a "soger." It do-'s seem strange that the Representatives of the "tierce Democracy" should fail to pass such a bill; but, strange as it may appear, it is nevertheless true. ' They fought long and hard for it,, but as there was "nary" nii'trer in it, the Caucus had no jurisdiction, and the members were left free to vote as they pleased. Perhaps the explanation may be found in these two im portant facts, the first of which is, the Constitution makes the Governor the Com-mauder-in- Chief of the "A rmy and Navy" of the State; and the second, that S. P. Chase is Governor. I he bill repealing the law to "prevent slaveholdingand kidnapping in Ohio" has passed the House, and is, therefore, a law of the State! The day cannot be far dis tant when gentlemen would, give more than they will make by the transaction to have the dishonorable record blotted for ever from 4thc archives. But, alas! for the fair-fame of our noble Ohio, this can never be done. True, the next Legisla- voto rejecting the bill was then reoonsid- reJ. thabi!l.ngain put.tipon its. passage, i:d carnal! : Will.it be belieVtd iii flfler itnes that such an nc could' have been passod under such cir.cumsta.nccs? :-In? iiodille as it miiyseebi, ic 'is, nlsr true! Look at ihe thing. Members publicly and privately denounced tho bill as' ono -of unmixed Rorvilt! y, 'meanness, ' despotism ind folly so entirely indefensible that it would not bear discussion so utterly ab horrent to them, that they would leave their seam and secrete themselves to avoid a vote on it; and yet, wlien ferreted out of their hiding places, and. brought into tho House in custody of the officer, quailed before the frowns of their leaders, fore swore their manhood, and against their convictions of right and duty, voted for tho bill, and in doing so, Voted themselves Having thus secured the fngitives, and effectually broken them in, it was thought to be a good time to put through kindred measures 'he bill to repeal the Habeas Corpus Act. So lalo as . it was, that bill was called up, the previous question sprung, the gag applied, and the bill nmsHii bv the same vote! We have , spoken of this bill iu former letters, and shall not venture to characterize it now. If the people of Ohio are pre pared for this series of acts, they ought not object to the Lecompton despotism Let them at once' renounce all pretense to State sovereignty write "servile upon her escutcheon and advise Texas and Aluhnma that thev need not co to Africa for their slaves. Let them say to their Southern masters that Sena tor Ham mond spoke truly when in the U. S. Sen ate, the other day, he pronounced all la borers slaves. If acquiesced m, then, indeed, are wo slaves! Columuus, 0., March. 22d, 1858. Dear Telegraph In our letter of Sat urday, the defeat of the Militia bill was duly noted, but an incident somewhatcon neeted therewith, and worth putting on record ns a part of the history of the times, was committed. Among the great ones of the earth, and figuring largely in the lato Military Convention, and as a lobby member demanding its passage, was Gen. Cha. II. Sargent. It seems that thecor rtfspomtent of tho Cincinua'.i "Couimor cial," Mr. Smith, who is a very small yemig man, had in his letters said some soreastic things about the bill, and had in some way named the mighty Gen. Smart ing under the defeat of a sch( me which he had nursed all w inter, and acting on the theory that war is the legitimate busi ness of warriors, the said Gen. nccoidingly went to war. The, follow ing is the ac count of the battle as given by Smith him self, which we cut from the "Commer cial" of this morning: About two o'clock yesterday, I wns standing in front of the Neil House, iu conversation with Messrs. Harrison and Hubbell, of the House. Mr. Harrison had just turned to go to the Stale House, (I ture will doubtless undo the deed, but the i liaj not tiuished talking with Mr. Hub stain is lnenaceauie. it lias oecome ins- bell, as we were makinir some nrranire- proot" of a House re- tory, that in this noon of the nineteenth ceutuiy, the Legislature of Ohio invited I ho sooundrelism of the world to make her meuts to read the port that night,) when Judge Safiin, think ing that they both had lelt, and who was i standing on the stens of the Neil House. soil, once-consecrated to f.ecdom, a grand to inc. 1 turned my face toward hunting-giound, where the game coiisis;s'him, when, feeling some one touch me, I of men and women, and the chase urged lurwd - back, and received a blow just . . .... . . inhiiviul li tl.fl left nf llifl l.'I't. eve u-itli oi! lv thfi commtittrl incentive-: ol avarice . - .

I immediately averted my heoI h -it, it will bo found to be in perfect 1 ar an unprotected ai'd unresisting man, by an armed bully. The fcts jirthis cuho are bt'Wrly thetfet Smith was iianding in front of .tho Noil. House talkig; with Messrs. Harrison and Hubbell hih members of tho House-iwhen S;irgcnt camo along on tlie. Oth v.t side of the street, and meeting Collins of Hamilton, nuked luni who "r. C." of the Cincinnati "Commercial" was. Collins pointed Smith, out to Sargent, just across the street, when ho passed over Harrison and Hubbell 'being in tho not: of leaving Smith and came up buluad..h'iu laid his hand on Smith's shoulder, he said, "G d d m you! 111 show you whether I'm a fighting man or not!" and as Smith turned toward him, struck him with a slung-shot across the eye. Smith turned and commenced backing " rapidly toward the street and into the street, Sargent 101 lowed and striking nt him furiously with the slung-shot, till Hubbell succeeded 111 InyiiiK hold of him. ' He then turned fu- nously on uubbeii, Duiaiunot buikb huh. It did not appear in the evidence, but it may be well enough to state here that Hub bell is a large, muscular man, who can't run verv fast, and who, notwithstanding any christian forbearance ho may be pos sessed of. does not show any very decided marks of a non-resistant. 111 tact, lie rather looks as if he might have stomach for a "muss" on very short notice. Harrison probably had a speech last 111 his head he does not seem to have been actively engaged in any way. Probably Sargent moved the previous qnestton so auick he had no chance. Collins also was a witness on the trial, and went so far out of his way, on being questioned as to whether he ktrew ot bar crent's purpose when he inquired for "P SI 91 nl,l!,!nn fs. I. ta Mintv 1 fli fi t jt na 10 any 11 nuuiuvii iw mo vJ,j he did not know that it would have made any difference if he had known, as he con sidered this the only way 01 answering such things." Now, whatever excuse there mav be for such an expression from a born blackguard, Mr. Collins, who has every outward appearance of being a gen- t f man. is totally inexcusame in maMnjr such a remark, and I have no doubt felt ashamed of it the moment it was uttered. It was entirely a volunteer statement, not called for by his duty as a witness, and not sustained by any reasonable construc tion of the facts in the case. The article in the "Commercial" was meie idle ban ter, and General" Sargent was foolish in trettinr angry nt it in the first place, and an arrant coward to attack an "unresisting ' man in the way he did, afterward, All accounts agrco thai tho attack wns unprovoked, and daatardly to the last de gree. It is, of course, applauded by the few congenial spirits who know no argu ment but the bludgeon, and who look upon tho weapons of the assassin ns the badges of tiuo chivalry. The " Commercial" touches them off gently in this style, but the editor ia said to be a larger man than Smith, and is therefore probably safe. He says: . . : Wo publish in another column a state ment made by our Columbus correspon dent, of the assault made upon him by Gen. Sargent, of this city, Friday last; 'We also L'ive the testimony of another ce'ntle- " . nil. r mnn. concerning this matter, ine net 01 Sargent was that of a poltroon and an as sassin, tie wasonenueaaioureciiiorinis, it appears, as well as our correspondence. ... - -i- . 11 -1? l-.l u . .

Collins, a member of the Bar of this county, and a member of the Legisla ture, acted the part of a hound for Sargent He pointed out our correspondent to tho Brigadier with the slung-shot, and enjoyed the fun which followed. This'he did, he 6Ute8, because he thought Sargent was using the best means left the public to protect itself from this paper and its correspondent. His position is, if possible, more despicable than that ol fcargent The Senatf then took a recess until seven o'clock.' Mr. Stewart having the floor'.". Seven, oio.& i if.

The manner of doing the deed was 111 perfect keeping wish the act it .elf. The bill had bcuii taken from the Committee of the Whole without discussion, by gen eral consent, under the deliberate pledge of the Democrats, publicly given, that those opposed to the measure should have a fair opportunity to be heard. With this distinct understanding, several members (the writer among them) had prepared speeches, which was known to tho oppo site side. Relying on this pledge, you may imagine the surprise of those not iu the secret of the Caucus, when tie bill was suddenly. called up, and the previous question sprung upon the House. The Republicans ; appealed to their sense of nii.l tried to escape, the blows bt ing repeat. id rnj idly on the side and back of my head. The first thing 1 knew afterward, I saw Mr. Hubbell twinging General Sir gent around on the pavement raiher lively, and high words were passing between them. Sargent thieatened Hubbell if he did not let him alone, and II. told him to pitch in, which General S. thought, from H.'s size, it was not best to do. I passed to the State House, where I was kindly ad ministered to. Messrs. - ltobinson, of Union, and Parsons, of Cuyahoga, and a score or two of friends, whom it is impos sible for me now to remember, immedi ately took the matter up. I will give no moie details. Messrs. Harrison, Hubbell, and Snfh'11 were my witnesses, or rather witnesses for the State, and their ev idence more than substantiates the sim ple charge of assault and battery. The Justice said it won!'.! have substantiated a much li.ore ktH'Us charge and, as we know, one that would have sent him to the Penitentiary.' ' ' ' In his remarks to the Court he said that COW G K ESS 1 ON A L..

' He pointed out the mistake, adding beloved the Union, but loved ' the itrhu of his Stale more, and there might be contingencies when, ho should, advo cate a dissolution of tho Union'. Mr. Wilson then explained. Mr. Broderlck hoped the Senate would adjourn. There were several who desired 10 speak: Messrs, Dixon, vvitson, uaynru, Douglas, Stewart and Grow; and he him self might have somethiuing to say, but did not wish to stay listening to speeches when less than a dozen Senators were present; therefore, he hoped they would adjourn until Monday. l he motion was reiecieu. Mr. Wilson said that some lawyers had achieved a reputation' on account of their success in rtefendin'' criminals; but he said thai nobody would gain an enviable notoriety by amending me notorious Kansas -swindle. He proceeded to re ply to Mr. Hammond's speech. He saw nothing nejf in that speech; 1110 same doc trines' hattjbwi enunciated by Calhoun, McDuffie, 'arid other,. South Carolina statesmen. South Carolina, he said, had always led the Democratic pariy, aud he held that the Administration was responsible tor these doctrines; that State had always taken the lead in the efforts to extend and perpetuate slavery . As to Mr. Hammond's compar ison ot the relative strength ottheJNorth and South, he (Wilson) proposed to show by facts and figured how freedom has worked in the other. . He also'commented on the condition of the poor white meu of the South, contrast ing it with that of the laborers of the North. He (Wilson) had been an em ployee and an employer. Whatever he possessed had been obtained by the la bor of his hands and brains . He had hundreds of men at work for him, many of whom were equal in intel lect aud morals, to himself or the other Senators around him. The mechanics of Masachuseltss live in better houses and read more books than the slaveholders of the South, vet Mr. Hammond calls them slaves. The Senator.. also says that our slaves vote.

Mr. Stewart, of Michigan, said that he would not discuss the question on the ab stract piinciples of slavery, but. 011 the ground thai the action of the Locorapton Constitution was an intentional traud upon the people, and did not express, the will of the people. He then followed with considerable) closeness the President's message, contending that its reasoning in some cases was fallacious, and in others absurd. He was astonished, he said, that the President would, in his special message, say that Kansas was in a sta to of rebellion, and yet propose that this re bellious State should be admitted into the Union. He (Stewart) would not recapit ulate the history of Kansas; that has al ready been done. The Senator from V ir ginia, (Hunter,) the other, day, by way of disreputable contrast, alluded to the eagles ol Europe gathering to the spoils of empirewhile we ars wrangling over the frauds ot Delaware Crossing, lhat oeu ator here unwittingly described tho differ ence between the nations of . Europe and this Republic. There, empire is extended and the people governed by the strong arm of power; while here, they are governed through tlie purity ; pt the ballot-box.
