wicked in us, but the fact is nevertheless
true, that the death of one bill usually
gives us more -pleasure than the intro
duction of a dozen. The mania of Leg-
isliitors, 'evcrywhcfe Vcems to be to mul

think it jp pretty safe rule to vote for
almost any: proposition to repeal, and
agmnsl most of the new projects proposed
to be enacted. ; The Legislature has
been in fission three weeks, and there
have been introduced into the two
Houses about a hundred and fifty bills.
a dozen of these ought to be passed for
their merits, j Two dozen more proba-
"bly will : pass, out of complaisance to
their authors, to be repealed at the next

. i A most determined anc? persistent ef
tort will be made to destroy our School
law, under a very plausible, but very fal
lacious pretext. It is generally known
that under the present system the State
levy for the support oFCommon Schools
is distributed throughout the State, in
proportion to the number of youth in
each District, with out regard to the loca
tion of . the 'property taxed.' It there
fore happens that those conuties which
have, more :roa.terial -wealth than chil
dren, pay into the Common School Fund
more 'than they-'receive back, while other
counties receive' ranch more than they
pay : This is claimed to be unjust, and,
Lai firstsight it would seem to be so.; But
rfo our minVI it 'appears to be the only
principle" of eojuity upon which a system
ofCommon.ScJiools can ever be main-
ained.: .A-;: .z. ;
The only i theory TipoiT which we can
justify a tax at all for the purposes of
education is, that the Mate being sover
eign,7 has a right to tax. the property of
the State, for the purpose of educating
the" people of the State.- If1 this theory
be not sound,; then the whole " system is
.bju.Ut jipen a fallacy. . and., ought; to "fall.
But if the' principle is right,, then the
moriey,herever- collected, ought to bo

Editors of Telegraph: Since writing
iny last letter for your excellent paper,
I- have had the exquisite' pleasure of
Scaring' the roct-Traveller; lecture at
r' - mith & ixons Hall, on the "Arc-
tic Regions." This world -renowned lec
turcr and "traveler was. escorted on the
s ta trcJy a in a STeTw ce r em o ii lT?iCa n d In -troduced
to aTIafgSaitd intelligent audi
ence, who , greeted the speaker with a
round of applause, when he commenced
his lecture by saying t'i. t eight years
ago he stood upon the banks of the Nile,
among palm trees, whose lofty, tops
waved their grateful heads as if to in
vite the weary tra veler under .their cool
ing branches. ...... .';
After giving a vivid description of the
Torrids, which thrilled the vast audi
ence with delight, the Speaker ith un
surpassing beauty, contrasted , the "spicy
breezes of Africa with the ,icy blasts of
Sweden and Lapland, where, the inten
sity of the cold was so great in winter
that it penetrated to the bones through
two suits of fur clothing, and so thick
that itcould be sccu.. In these ice-bound
regions, he said, the inhabitants were
genial in their intercourse with each
other, and hospitable to strangers. ' He
said that the reindeer, the Laplander's
main dependence, are almost as intract
able and unfriendly as the hyena. ' For
instance, the speaker said, when he
trailed in latitude seventy north, with
that animal, fifteen miles an hour, over
snow and ice, on a trougK-shaped sled,
with a line fastened to the base of its
horns, and the other end around his
Lwrist, the deer would frequently , upset
the driver in a huge bank of snow, and
instantly wheel about and stare him in
the face, as much as to say, "what are
you goingto do about itr'. t
Bayard Taylor spoke without notes,
and was easy, graceful, conversational.
He treats his subject so that it can be
comprehended by the least apt of hear
ers; yet his lecture was gilded by the
sunny gleam ot poetry. Nature has be
stowed Tipdn him the natural advantages
of a graceful person and an intelligent
and prepossessing countenance. He has
acquired that easy elegance of deport
ment which travel and intercourse with
the various nationalities of the world
can alone furnish. His lecture teemed
.with the gorgeous imagery of a lively
faney a warm and glowing vein of the
richest poetry ran ; through it, and was
embellished with the finest touches of
humor. His unequalled descriptive tal
ent painted a landscape upon the mental
vision of his audience, and his genial
disposition found an echoing chord in the
hearts of the people. His varied and
universal traveling in the world may be
summed up by saying that .he has seen
but two sorts people men and women.

Deinoeratic establishment purjt-ased,two
months ago, one of Col. Hoe's four cyl
inder power presses, for foui'tech -thou--sand
dollars. Some of the advanages
of this literary engine of thought over
the hand press consist in its acearacy of
execution, iu its enabling publishers to
hohl ppen their columns for the recep
tion of news up 'to 3 o'clock at night,
and . then have their ptipers ready for
city distribution and the mails before
daylight In the' morning. The proprie
tors of the Cvmmercicil introduced the
first four cylinder press into this, city a
few years ago, and then the Editors of
the Enquirer got one, and now 'their
neighbors of the Gazetfe are paving a
six cylinder power press made to order,
which will he the largestand the only one

Business generally is dull owing to
the scarcity of; money, over stocks of all
kinds, and to thousands flocking here
from this and other States for employ
ment, which makes a surplus population
of consumers. Hundreds of mechanics
and other laborers tire out of employ
ment, others arc workinir for small Wages
and scores for their board. -A majority
of clerks in stores are only getting six
dollars a week for their services, and on
that sum they dress fine, pay, from three
to four dollars per week for board, go
nightly to theaters or other places of
amusement, have oyster suppers, smoke
fine cigars, and are otherwise decidedly
"fast young men." How such extrava
gances are' supported on small salaries,
no human computation can tell, unless
the frequent bankruptcies of their em
ployers can solve the mystery. The
way fast young men live here, it costs
them from five to fifteen hundred dollars
a year according as they can get money
to spend.

Wc have bad two long speeches', one
by Xoc.l of IMo., another by Babbitt of
Pa; . ' ,
Mr. Sherman has j ust interrupted Clark
of Mo., and made a very spirited speech,
repelling the accusations made against
him, and again declaring that he should,
if Clark's resolution was withdrawn, ex
plain fully his views ou the Helper book,'
but that unless the resolution was with
drawn, he would never offer another
word in explanation, lie said that he
never did anything under menace, and,;
so help him . God, he would never be"
coerced into any such action. Mr. Sher
man's remarks were at times warmly ap
plauded, both on the floor and in the
galleries. Clark had said that his ob
ject was to get an explanation from Mr.
Sherman, and ,Mr. Sherman gave him
this chance to get it. Clark absolutely
refused to withdraw the offensive resolu
tion. ' VsH!OTOlt,, Jan. 21.
The debate in the House yesterday,
was one Of the most exciting ol'the ses
sion. Mr. Sherman rose to a personal
explanation, when the whole House, lie
publicans and Democrats, gathered about
him. In clear and distinct tones he an
nounced that if Clark's, of Missouri, of
fensive resolution was withdrawn, if only,
for a moment he would express his opin
ion fully upon the Helper book, but
would not do so while a menace was held
over him. It was not in his blood and
could not be put there. This remark
elicited loud applause. Clark of course
declined to withdraw his resolution.
The last thing the Democrats desire,
is Sherman's opinion, JThcy know that
it wbuld explode all their theories, and
defeat all their calculations. I think,
however, that the matter is pretty well
understood by. the House, and the bug
bear has lost its intimidating power.
The intelligence of Clark B. Cochrane's
illness has. aroused a painful sensation
here, where he was much respected and
valued. Private letters' do not confirm
the published accounts of his insanity,
but represent him as having voluntarily
sought the advice of the ' distinguished
physician of the Utiea Asylum, for re
lief from the cerebral excitement, which
his friends apprehended afforded threat
ening indications.

Washing ion. Jan. S3.
There is a progr;'.mc on foot to appeal
to the Kepublicans to withdraw Mr.
Sherman and try E. Joy Morris, of Pa.
Anierican-Kcpublican, for Speaker, but
the mass of the Itepublicans will not con
sent to it. Some of the Americans have
i been' appealed to vote fr Larabce, of
Wisconsin, put not enougn oi-inem can
be induced to consent to give any shadow
of hope of success for this plan.
The Bepublicans are constantly in re
ceipt of most encouraging letters in sup
port of their course here.
JJarksdale made a heavy and labored
speech in the House to-day, which emp
tied the. benches like a panic. When he
closed, there were not over fifty Bepre
sentatives in their places.
Mr. Corwin was called out by a re
mark of Mr. Barksdale. He said his
object was to move that the House pro
ceed to ballot. They had done such
things before, which he admitted, with
very little success.
If ever tlie House was organized it
would be by voting. If the gentleman
from Mississippi, (Barksdale,) who had
advocated secession in the event of the
election of a Bepublican President,
should be elected Speaker, he (Corwin)
promised to stay in the Union. This
farce which has been acted here for sev
eral weeks, very v uch to the amusement
of the members themselves, was some
times for the disturbance of the temper
of the gentlemen, had begun to be looked
upon as ' a serious uiatter. Every gen
tleman should, therefore, conscienciously
think what he shall do. -. "
He was reminded by friends the other
day, that there was something greater in
the election of a Speaker than he sup
posed, viz., that in a certain event the
Speaker might become President. He
confessed he was'a little puzzled by the
suggestion. It might be so, but he did
net think this should be incorporated
into their thought as one of the contin
gencies. ' It was not probable that either
the President or Vice President would
be amiable enough to .die, that the
Speaker might succeed to their place,
lie does not know, however, what Prov
idence has hi stove for us. He did not
know why the Helper book should be
driven into their line of thought; it might
be the product of the liberty of the press,
which is called in classic language, the
palladium of our liberties.
No free government has existed in
modern times without a free press, so we
must be content to take the freedom of
the! press as we have it, with all its
abuses as well as its blessings.
The House and galleries were crowded,
and he was surrounded by nearly every
member, who listened attentively
throughout, to his remarks. The Dem
ocrats writhe under his speech terribly.
"The dog goeth back to his vomit and
the sow to her wallowing.!' Douglas
has done both to-day..; He stood up be-1
fore a vast concourse of peopl
ie who had i
assembled to listen to him. Every avail
able inch ol room was occupieu, cxpeci
insr him to repel the assaults that have
been made npon him by the Democrats.
But no! ; He stood there lor two mortal
hours and ate dirt for the aniuement ot
Southern master?. Perhaps in this; way
he may win the Charleston nomination
but those who listened to him were sore!

. The speech of Douglas on Monday,
promulgating his desire for the establish
nient of a slave code, has placed the ad
herents of that gentleman in the House,
and elsewhere, in a . very bad predica
uieni. They say a slave' code can only
apply to the Territories, while Ddtrlaa!,!
theory for the protection of slave prop
erty in the States Iocs not apply to the
Territories, and iiereforeit is not a slave
code. .-:: '
This is too fine a distinction to admit
of a distinguishable difference. ;
Douglas had a hundred thousand
copies of his speech printed in advance
for circulation intheSouthcrn States and
Illinois. ' ;
Mr- Corwin, of Ohio, resumed his elo
quent speech. i You will, of course, obr
tain it complete.. He was listened to
with unbroken attention by every mem
ber for two daily sessions. .' Tt . was the
speech of the scs'iion, if not the greatest
speech of Mr.: Corwin's life. The lle
publicans are in eestjacics over this great
speech. The only fault, if it is a fault,
is that he is too generous toward his ene
mies. . Toward the close of Mr. Corwin's
remarks, nearly every Senator,' and Vice
President Breckinridge, came into the
House, while outsiders pushed into every
available corner. The drop which he
gave Mr. H. F. Clark was a terrible let
ting down of that proud no-party gentle
man. The applause which followed it was
uproarious.
Keitt, of South Carolina, pitched into
the speech cf Mr. Corwin most vehe
mently.- He plucked the feathers from
the "American eagle, and tore the Union
in tatters.
;, . Washi kotos, Jan. 26.
As might have been expected, the very
first thing which the Democrats did this
morning was to fillibuster and break over
the agreement proposed by htlieridgc, of
Tennessee, yesterday, that there should
be no more talk; to which they then gave
their assent, and when the Bepubllcans
attempted at last to, hold them to their
agreement, they finally repudiated the
whole thing, and declared they had not,
aud
j'ould not give their consent to such
an arrangement.

and never will when anything is to be
gained by doing otherwise. It is now dem
onstrated to the country beyond a ques
tion, that the Democrats arc the real dis
organizes and disunionists.
A very significant fact was developed
on the first ballot for Speaker. Mr
Hamilton in withdrawing his name, said
he thought tlie Union was already being
dissolved. .
He approved of a dissolution, and
thought it would l.e better than the elect
ion of Sherman; and then he said that
his views on all political subjects were
well known, and that he had never made
any attempts to conceal them. Thus it
would appear that the Democrats and
Southern Amerieans, who voted for Ham
ilton, voted to elevate to the third place
in government a man whose record and
aims are for disunion. In face of this
fact, how hollow and false are all. the
windy ' pretensions .of- the Democratic
party, that they love the Union, that they
are conservative and national. They
stand in the face of the nation branded
as disunionists, disorganizes, factious
men, who would sacrifice the interests
of the government and people to advance
their own ends and the interests of South
ern ultraists. .
Everything has been given up by the
Northern Democrats to the demands , of
the Southern Democrats. They have
conceded to them the control of the ex
eeutive and legislative departments of
government. J,hey have -allowed the
feupreme Court to be made the . partisan
supporters of infamous laws, and the ex
ponent of forced constructions, and the
falsifier of history.
They have, when bidden, eaten their
own words in favor of universal freedom,
and abjured their solemn declarations
against the growth,.nay, the existence of
slavery; and now, when the demand is
made, they confirm disunionist ministers
and vote for ' a disunionist Speaker.
Their motto seems to be, "The union of
the Democracy must be preserved, at the
expense of the union of the States."
The amount of cash iu the treasury
has accumulated to more than eight mil
lions of dollars, and yet a dollar of it
cannot be disbursed until Congress gets
to work. The citizens complain bitterly
of it. . t

Washington, Jan. 27.
In the House, yesterday, the Demo
crats generally voted for W, X. H.
Smith, of North Carolina, American.
lie was not elected. Messrs. J. W. Da
vis, of Indiana, Allen, of Ohio, and II ol
nian. of la., ,lid not vote for Smith, but
all the other Democrats did. Bigss and
Adi ian, Autji-Lecompton . Democrats, of
New Jersey, did not vote for him. The
Democrats are mad beyond conception.
They dec-lured themselves sold, i heated,
and totally destroyed. The test vote is
past. The adjournment until Monday,
which the Bepublicans supported, was
carried. They desire to consult. Mr.
Corwin now has friends, and Mr. Pen
nington his. It is doubtful which has
the majority. Mr. Sherman appointed
a caucus at U o clock to-movrow. unnn
his own authority.
The near approach of Smith to elec
tion does. not. surprise me. Late last
night it was confidently stated in Demo
cratic circles, that the conservative cle
ment, as they term it,' were a! out to con
trive and endeavor to elect a Speaker to
day. Tljeir intention was to effect "a

It looks now as if the Democrats will
"split up bn : Monday. MrV Smith is in
favor of a slave code; if he were not, the
south would not vote for him. No' free
State man can vote' for him. '
; The Pennsylvania men who voted for
Smith and left him, did it to catch the
Democrats. TYttTfuse succeeded. The
result of to-day has been a glorious Re
publican triumph. : i -'.ii 'J-

has the best chance.
