WhUethe question, relating to the organization these territories is exciting so much interest, the followiniifjlescription of the country and its capaci tiiTbmraunicated to the Washington Union, will cratify our readers v . Tij Nebraska and Kaxsas. North of the Marie de; Seine river, and ;adibinmr the Missobri line, the L Miami tribe of Indians are locafcd. This is a small k tribe of raixed up Indians, with same of almost a! t .p border tribes, ha -Dreeus, anu jrencn, woo 'have intermarried wjlh them. They are partiaUy civilized; live in houses; and cultivate Uio soil to a stnaU -extent Their, principal reuance ior support . is tinon the bovernuient annuities, which to them, as well as mo't all other Indians, liave proved a enrse. They a'reMdle anil dissolute in tlieir. habits; ilrunkehiiess'prerailing to an alarming extent, the consequence of which is they are rapidly on the decline. Their country u goou, wen waiereu aim timbered. -The v are anxious to selL Somo would 'etime iinder the- laws, and the balance scatter among other trilios.' Adjoining them, on the north, are the Weas Piankeshaws, and Peorian, who are iiiurU- tlie?ame people as the Miamis, small tribes depending mainly upon, their scanty annuities for ii support, 1 hey own uuia sruau Biusiii ui cuuii irjirhic i fertile, wefl 'watered and timbered; Iiae a mission established and 'trading house; n-nnlil sell, and nro'bnblv locate with other tribes. To' tlie west of the Peoria is the Ottawas, a Fmall tribe, 'numbering about three hundred and titty souls, who aro in a rapid slate of improvement Thev- have comfortable log houses, snug little farms, raise stock- and do very well They owe much to a missionary who has long resided -with them, and done a vast deal of irood. They have a code of laws similar to town corporations. Their land is h'rtl-, Well watered, and timbered on the streams. They would sell a portion of their land-', but would desire to remain and become citizens of the Terri tory. Still west of them are the Sac and Fox In dialv.'who own a considerable extent of country bordering on both sides of the Marie de Seine de Seine: ate the same as the Osages in their habits and customs; adherins? strictly to their heathen cus torn1-: never changing even ,in tlieir dress. They live in villages; depend upon hunting and annuities winch aie large ior a living; are an nonesi, honorable people, in their way; and taken all in all very good Indians. In number about two thou sand souls. Have six trading houses, blacksmith shops, &c Some portion of their cc untry is quite good, whilst others are not, being somewhat, scarce of timber. They wish to sell and envgrate south, pomtswhere on or beyonu the Arkansas. Si.vtv or seventy miles west of the Sac and Fox Indians, at a place called Council Grove, are the Kanas Jndiaua a lazy, tnieving irmes, noteu throughout the land as princes of horse thieves and beggary are totally uncivilzed; live by hunting the btilUio anu preying npon travellers passmg me plain?, and a small annuity from the government. The country occupied by them is most beautiful, well .watereu, umoereu, ana leriue, caving me au vantage of tho great Santa Fe road passing directly through it The Neosho river runs through the heart of their territory, and there are numerous small creeks and branches in every direction, with the purest and best of water, clear as crystal The bottoms on all these streams are large and good. The bottom land on the Neosho river cannot be ex celled, varying in width from three to twenty miles. Many fields of a thousand acres with a soil sir to eight feet deep can be obtained, without a wash as deep as a common wagon rut Council Grove is the general rendezvous for Santa, Fe and mountain traders, preparatory to launching on the boundless plains. Here is the last good timber, the last opportunity for obtaining supplies, of which there is an abundance. At the Grove are five or six trading houses, a missionary establishment, shops, &c Here is a most beauti ful location for a town. So soon as the territory is organized it will be the City of tho Plains. The Kansas Indians will readily sell out, and would move to the Cottonwood, just beyond, or go south, in order to get out of the way of their much-dreaded enemies, Uie Pawnees. Whether the territory is oiganized or not, these Indians should be bought ou, and removed at once as far as possible from the travelled roads. As now situated, they are a great nuisance, to the trade and travel of that important thoroughfare the Sante Fe road. AMERICA. A SHORT WAY WITH THE FREESOILEKS. The New York Day Book adopts the following short way with the freesoilers, who now pretend that the Missouri Compromise was a solemn com pact, never to be violated. The facts' stated In the dialogue are useful for reference here: A Dialogue. The following dialogue took place yeHerday, between a noted freesoiler and a Ne braska man: IWrsoiler "A compact, sir, a solemn compact; how can you go for violating a solemn compact?'1 . Xehrashu "What is a compact! Who violates a compact, s'u?" Ffeexoiler "Why, sir, the Missouri compromise was a solemn compact; it was an agreement enter ed into between the North and South, that slavery should never be established North of 30,30." Xehrasht ''And that it might be established ouih of that line;'' Freesoiler "Yes, sir." Mnasl-a "Why, then, did yon and your nartv voie ugainsi u in .-vrKausas, ew Mexico, Texas, anu all, iluring the excitement of 18-18, '49 and i.0, ami piolnbitit in California south of that line? Freesoiler "California, sir! why, California had her own way about it. fche came to us wuh a con stitution made by her own people, and we all agreed to admit her. Aelrwd.a "I know we did; we agreed to the principle mat eacn oiaic might have her own way about the matter that is our last agreement, and that I will stand to. l ou came in with your nro visa, and refused to be bound by the Missouri com promise, and got California. Ve gave up to you and agreed to your last olTer, and now -ou want to back out ot that ami go .back to the compromise! Tins won t (to. l ou must give as well as take. My advice to you is, that when you make another compromise, j ou sticK to it. - J2f The Legislature of Georgia recently passed resolutions instructing the Senators in Congress from that Slate, and requesting her Representa tives to vote for the bilL These resolutions passed the House by a unanimous vote,, and only met three dissenting voices in the Senate. The resolution ofiVred by Mr.. Stephens is in the following words: llesolctd, ly the General Assemhly and Stale of 'eorim, That opposition to the principles ot the Nebraska Bill, in relation to the subject of slavery, is regarded by tho people of Georgia as hostility to the South, and that all persons who partake in such opposition are unfit to be iecognized as com ponent parts of any party or organization not hos Ide to the South.

A short debate occurred -in the" Senate on. the 20th jns ant, on the merits of the' NelraikjtfbHI) It was -commenced by Mr. Hawser, who, previijus to presenting a petition froai 'some' If his.constit uents, said: ' -v -Southern Kentlemen had taken up. the idea that the amendment offered by him, ("Providing that nottiingjn the Act shall revive m Uie teiritories any laws existing prior to 1820; protecthigi prb- hibiting,or oooiisning slavery j j was ueinmeuiat to the southern interest,- and that impression nau gene forth in consequence, giving an unfavorable tone to BOJtheru sentiment. He would say, as he had said on, a former occasion, that, in his judgment as a prolesMoual man, tho act itself would have the ettoit ot leaving the Territories without any Jaw In regard to slavet-y; its efleci was not changed in the least by his amendment, ilut as lie ueeiii d it important that frankness should characterize all their legislation, and in order that the possibility of misinterpretation of the act might be prevented, he had submitted his proviso, guarding against the' revival of the Louisiana law. He submitted further remarks on this subject, saying that in the .Nebraska bill Congress simply desires to confer the right of self-legislation on the subject of slavery entirely upon' the people of the' Territory, It was thought by some of his friends that, In voting for this bill, he had conceded the right of squatter sovereignty. This, however, ho denied. The bill implies only that, under tho cir cumstances in which the people of these Territo ries were placed, it was proper and right that they should be allowed to control their own internal af fairs. Mr. Butler said that, by the Nebraska bill, Con gress had conferred tho legal power of legislation ,upon all subjects upon the people of the Territo ries. Was there a reasonable man, who had read the bill, who would say that it intended to revive the French or Spanish law of slavery? By desue tude, if nothing else, these laws had gone out of etlecL If a custom grew up under the Missouri xomnromise, by which these laws were disregarded, they became a dead letter. It was his opinion that the operation of tho bill would bo that the territo rial legislature would take no action upon the sub ject, but leave it to the American citizens who re side in the Territory, to act as they please In regard to the introduction of slaves. Thj3 bill was a re cognition that Congress had exclusive jurisdiction in the subject of territorial government, and that Congress could give to the Territories no more than was authorized by the Constitution of the United States. Jle had voted to give this power to these Territorio3, because he had full confidence that they would impress the principles of the American gov ernment upon the legislation of the Territories until they were ready to assume the powers of States. It there wa3 any questions to ne maue in relation to the freedom of a slave in these Territo ries, and he should demand his freedom upon the ground that he was free under a territorial law, the answer of the master could be that he held the slave as nroDerty under a higher law than the eri actment of a territorial legislature under the great fundamental law of the country. Mr. .Mamjx rpmarked that the bill which had re cently nassed the Henste would be received by the American people as one of tlje mo3t important measures that bad been adopted lor many years. The south had not corae halt way, but had ad vanced to gire tho north t'lP hand of friendship. The north had boldly, manfully, and in the spirit of true Americans, come lorward to repeal an obnox ioii3 law. The amendment in question was inserted in order to make it clear that the south had no in tention to extend slavery into these Territories. He was willing to yield nothing of the rights of the south, lhis odious measure, the Missouri law, was annulled, and the Territory was left una flee ted by any law on the subject of slavery. It was too much 'that those who profrs.- e I a regard for the Union should reject this opportunity to cement it forever. This bill would send lorlh to the world the great principle, that Congress disclaimed juris diction over this subject of slavery. When this bill shall go into effect, sectional division and agita tion will be quieted and settled forever. While the principle of the bill was so salutary, it wai idle to contend about details which, did not effect that principle. Isdiax Narcotics. Bayard Taylor recently de livered an interesting lecture in New York on the Arabians, in the course of which he had occasion to mention the habit ot using a certain narcotic drug, which prevails among this people, and de scribes its effects in some experiments he made up on himself. His description was as follows: While in Arabia, I had one very remarkable ex penence. There is a drug- in the East whose ef- lect is like opium, that which is prepared from the Indian hemp. It was much used by the Saracen warriors, when about to enter a battle, as a stimulus. It produces on the imagination a double conscious ness; one part of the mind seems to study while the other part iooks on. irom motives of curi osity, I was persuaded to try the effect of it upon my own system. I was in Damascus at the time. Soon after taking the drug, the effect began to ap pear. I saw the furniture in the room, talked with the company, and yet I seemed to be near the pyramid of Cheops whose blocks of stone appeared to me like huge squares of Virginia Tobacco. The scene changed, and I was on the desert in a boat made of the mother of pearl. The sand seemed to be grains of lustrous gold, through which my boat ran as easily 83 on the waves of the sea; the air seemed filled with harmonies of the sweet est music; the atmosphere was filled witlf light, with odors and music. Before me there seemed to be a constant series of arcades and rainbows' through which for fifteen years I seemed to glide. The liner senses were developed, and all gratifica tion was single harmonious sensation. Hence we can easily conceive the origin of the Arabian Nights. My companion, a huge Kentuckian, tried the drug with 311 amusing effect. After looking at me awhile, ho suddenly started with the exclama tion "'I'm a locomotive," and began to cut off his words like the puff of an engine, and to w'ork his arms like the moving of the wheels. At last he seized the jug for a drink, but set it down with a yell, saying, "how can 1 take water into my boiler, when I'm letting off steam?" LATE 11 FROM CALIFORNIA. New Orleax3, March 24.

Tub Northern Democratic Press In reply to the assertion of the Dubuque Tribune, that Iowa was the only free State in which a majority of tho democratic papers had not declared against the Ne braska bill, the Iowa Capital Reporter says : "The democratic press of Michigan, comnrisinf many among the most able country newspapers in the Union, are almost unanimous in their support of Douglas. " In the State of Maine, as in Iowa, but one democratic press is found on the hostile ground. - ''Twenty-five of the most influential papers in Ohio are arrayed in advocacy of the measure, and also the prominent journals of Wisconsin and Jn diana. "In Massachusetts ten democratic papers, with of the bill, opposed to four presses, with a circula tion of 4,350. "In Vermont, the hot hole ot whiggery and ab olitionism, .every democratic press has spoken in favor of the bill. ''In fact, the entire democracy of New England comes manfully up to the support of Douglas and his bill "We think that we have shown sufficiently the prevoiling sentiments of the free States, to con vince any one that Iowa is not the only one of-the sisterhood in which the maiority of the democratic papers do not denounce the bill" LAM'S OF THE IJNITKD STATES.
