By reference to the news in this clay's paper, it will be seen that the Nebraska bill has passed the Senate in the same shape in which it had formerly passed the House, and that itis now the law of the land. We have, by the Washington papers, lull reports i of the action of the House on the passage of the bill in that body. The southern members proved themselves greatly the overmatch of their northern opponents in parliamentary tactics. By an old parliamentary rule, when an enacting clause of a bill is amended in committee of the Whole, no other amendment can be offered to the bill, which must then be reportel to the House. Accordingly, Mr. Stepetss, of Georgia, offered to amend the enact ing clause, which was carried, and then thero was nothing left to do but to report the bill to the House. The House put the head on again, and then the tail, which is Mr. Richardson's substitute, which, in turn, is nothing else but Judge Douglas' bill with out the Clayton amendment, and then passed the bilL In the Senate, the bill was easily passed as it came from the House. The great principle of Con gressional non-intervention with slavery is thus established; and the vocation of the abolitionists, as well R3 the hope of their southern allies, are thus annihilated. The Washington. Union furnishes the following abstract of the vote of the House on the passage cf the bill: On the passage of the bill (H.

Our opportunities for obtaining reliable informa tion from Cuba are better than those of mostof our contemporaries of the American press, having per sonal friends among those having business relations with parties on the island, who, while they scrupu lously refrain from forfeiting any obligation of their political position of mere spectators of passing events, are in everyway capable of forming cool and accurate opinions of what may be transpiring' around them. We have more than once already spread before the readers of the Star information reachintr us from such sources. Again we have been I favored by our friend in New York with a sight of important Havana leiiers, 10 me ioin iusi., wuku say that "it is difficult to describe the apprehension prevailing through the city, and, I understand, throughout all the interior towns. The various in cidents related of the growing insolence of the ne groes is startling. The Marquis goes by the name 'Papa Juan, the patron of Liberty and Equality.' One sees them in knots all over the city, discussing the decrees. The alarm and excitement is as great in the interior as in the city. The cry trill soon be revolution, and to arms; and, rest assured, will be a bloody and horrid warfare. A high officer of the government has just told me that he knows of a comincr decree which will cause bitter tears to flow." From another writer to the same commercial source in New York, we learn that "the registra tion to the end of setting free all negroes arriving since 1820, is being pushed with unexampled vigor throughout the whole island. England, while pre tending to oppose the slave trade, has withdrawn all her ships from the African coast, and openly per mits extradition as apprentices, to Africanize Cuba." According to the last information we can obtain, we shall by no means be surprised if it turns out that the government decrees all the negroes of the island virtually free, after a short term of years, except about 150,000. The signs of the times point to this result of their present labors and plots. This, we presume to be the "coming decree" which is to "cause bitters tears to flow," referred to above. And well it may; the free citizens thus to be made, being nine-tenths of them African born negroes, almost as barbarous, and quite as incapable of suc cessful self government, as on the days on which they were landed from the slave ships. It is a curious and interesting problem with us to know how far the government of the United States will permit Spain to go with the work of making Cuba ninety miles only from our Gulf coast a second St Domingo. We have no idea in the present condition of popular and Congres sional sentiment that three months will elapse be fore the Executive branch of the Government of the United States, will bring the progress of this English policy in the island to a dead halt, at all risks and any hazard, self-preservation on our part being the first great law of nations, as well as of nature. CONGRESSIONAL. THIRTY-THIRD CONGRESS FIRST SESSION. Washington, May 25. Senate. Mr. Gillett, Senator elect from Con necticut, in place of Mr. Smith, resigned, appeared and was sworn in. Mr. Clayton, from the Committee on Poreign Relations, reported back the joint resolution re questing the President to present a gold medal to the officers of the British ship, and the sum of $100 to each man of the boat's crew of that vessel who rescued Lieut Strain of the survey part-. Passed. The Nebraska bill was resumed from yesterday. Mr. Bell continued the speech commenced yes terday, against the bill, and rebuked Mr. Toombs for personal remarks made yesterday. Mr. Bell was very severe on Mr. Badger for un "dertaking to commit him for the bill. He said he never attended the meeting of the Southern Whig Senators, which authorized Air. Badger to say that all of the Southern Whig Senators were for the ML. He had never said he would sustain the bill, but cautioned his friends frequently not to rely upon him; and he had never talked to Mr. Badger on the subject He said no one liked the Nebraska bilL He sympathized with the deep agony with which the followers of Mr. Douglas walked in his foot steps. He charged the Nebraska men with a con spiracy, by which Mr.jChurchwell was to attack him in the House, and an assault to be made on him in the Senate. The statement that he had declared himself in favor of the Nebraska bill was false, wherever it was from. I Mr. Duubar presented the resolution passed the 1 Louisiana Legislature relative to Africanizing Cuba, j Mr. Orr asked leave to present the proceedings I of a public meeting held in North Carolina, in re j gard to the imprisonment of Capt Gibson. 1 Mr. Knox objected. House. The House went into Committee of the 1 Whole on the consideration of the Pacific Railroad bill, which was again postponed, and the deficien 1 cy bill was resumed. A number of amendments were debated, and the one increasing the salary of the Mail Agent of California to $5000 was rejected. Washington, May 20. Senate. The Senate continued in session till a quarter past 10 o'clock this, Friday, morning. Alter a most exciung ueDaie me senate concur red in the House amendment, excluding the Clay ton amendment, passed the Nebraska bill, and then adjourned until Monday. Immediately after the passage of the bill a salute of one hundred guns commenced firing from Cap itol Hill. j The following is the closing scene : ; At a quarter past 12 o'clock Mr. Douglas defend I ed the bill and repwitid his denunciation of the ' blasphemous sermons and memorials of the clergy. I He replied at length to the intimation that this" ' bill would be resented, and henceforth a stern op position to all laws uptn the subject of slavery wi lid be universal to the North. I Mr. Toucey said he had expressed his views on 1 a former occasion, and that he now fully concurred 111 all lie bad expressed, lie nati been instructed by the present Whig Abolition State of Connecti cut to vote against the bill, and after mature re flection he had come to the conclusion to disobey the instructions of the legislature, and obey that of the Constitution.

On the 9tti (2lst) instant an Anglo-French .squad ron, composed of six three-deckers, thirteen two-, deckers, and nine steamers, carryitig altogether 1, 900 gun?, anchored at the distance of three verets from Odessa About 4 P. M., Admirals Dundas and Ilamelin sent me a flag of truce, with a letter demanding me to deliver up with the least possible delay, the Rus sian, Eoglish, and French vesseb in the pnttlque and quarantine ports. I gave no answer to this presumptuous demand, as they might reasonably have expected. On the 10th of April, about G A. M., nine steamere of the enemy, one carrying 54 guns, and eight carrying for the most part 32, having passed be yond the reach of the first or right band battery, at tacked in turn, the live others, sending at the same time shells into the town, and then the whole stationed themselves in front of the mole of the pratique port Our batteries on the bank mount 48 guns, as fol lows: The 1st carrying G mortars, calibre, 9G, 48 24 24 48 24 24 and howitzers, guns, 2d, 3d, 4 th, 5th, 0 1G 8 " G howitzers, 4 " 6th, The enemy taking advantage of the heavy calibre of his guns, and particularly of his paixhans, of G8 and 9G, kept for the most part out of range. For this reason the fourth and fifth batteries, being dis tant, took litt'e part in the contest, although they were within the range of the enemy's guns; but the sixth, or left battery, placed on the extremity of the pratique port, fought at first with four guns and afterwards with two one of its guns being dismounted, and the enemy being out of the range of the other. This battery, commanded by Ensign Stchegolew, of the reserve battery of the 14th brigade of artillery, maintained a contest of six hours against the e'nemy's steamers, which towards the conclusion of the battle were seven in number. In addition to these, they had a screw steamer of the line, carrying 24 guns. The battery at length ceased firing, and Ensign Stchegolew only drew off his men when the vessels which were in the practique port behind the batteries, as well as the fortifications, caught fire. The coolness and self denial of Ensign Stchegolew spread themselves amongst his artillerymen, and at the end of the bat tle three of the enemy's steamers were obliged to be taken in tow. In virtue of the powers which have devolved upon me, I have honored those who particularly distinguished themselves in the above mentioned battle with the order of "Military Knights." When the battle was finished, I reported to his Hifihness the Field Marshal the brilliant exploit of Ensign Stchegolew. The hostile steamers, being built of iron and drawing very little water, were enabled, in spite of opposition, to round the mole and approach the bank one of them going towards the suburb of Perecipe, accompanied by boats, from which they threw congreve rockets, which burned the vessels in the pr"tique port and the houses in the suburb. They then attempted to effect a landing, but were repulsed by the grape shot of four gun3 from bat tery No. 3, garrioned by the 14th brigade of artil lery, and covered by six companies of the reserved battalion of Tomsk and Colyivansk (chasseur regi ments) placed in ambush. Driven back to their vessels and exposed to a cannonade during their retreat, they suffered a sensible loss, whilst we had only a few men killed and wounded, and two gun carriages destroyed. During this time the enemy's line-of-battle ships left their line and drew near the country house of General Luders to fire broadsides into it. They were received, however by the fire of the batteries 1, 2, 3, and after exchanging a few shots retreated to their line. This manoeuvre they executed sev eral times. The battle lasted about twelve hours. About seven o'clockinthe evening the line-of-battle ships and the steamers leftourleftside, regained their position, at the same time that the vessel which was opposite batteries 2 and 3 withdrew to the line. The relation of the brilliant manner in which the officers and troopa conducted themselves in the best proof which I can give them of my lively gratitude. May we always then, aided by divine grace, con tinue to serve God, our Emperor, and our country as conscientiously as we have done to-day. Signed by the Aid-de-Camp of General Baron Osten-Sacken. THE FREKCn ACCOUNT OF THE BOMBARDMENT- Nothing is spoken of here (Paris, Saturday even ing, May G,) but the successful issue of the attack on Odessa, and the gratification felt at the news is enchanced by the uncertainty which prevailed on the subject for some days previously. A telegraphic despatch received in Paris to-day gives intelligence from Constantinople to the 25th ult, and fully con firms the accounts already received. This despatch adds that the combined squadron had sailed for Se bastopol, with the intention, it was supposed, of merely blockading the place. The following is the account given by the Moniteur of the proceeding at Odessa: Ville de Pap.13, Odessa Roads, April 25. On the morning of the 22d, eight steam-frigates three French and five English proceeded to the imperial port of Odessa, and at half-past six four of them had opened their fire on the land batteries. The two moles as well as the intermediate batteries warmly returned it At ten o'clock four other frigates joined, and then the action became general It continued until five o'clock in the evening when Admiral Dundas made signal to the frigates to join the squadron. The fire had gained the battery of the imperial mole; the powder magazine had blown up; fifteen vessels, with the exception of two or three, were either sunk or on fire. The naval establishmento were also on fire, or very much in jured from the shells. The town and the commer cial port, where a number of vessels of all nations were moored, were respected, beveral ot these vessels took advantage of the confusion and got out and among them the only two French vessels that were there. THE WAR PREPARATIONS OF TnE ALLIED POWERS. The Paris Moniteur contains the following im portant announcement in reference to the war, and the intention of the two Powers to undertake still more extensive operations against Russia. The French and English governments have agreed in the adoption of all the measures of pre caution which the present war may render neces sary. With this object the Emperor has just de cided on the formation of two camps of manocu vering. The first, consisting of 100,000 men, will be established along the shore of the Monache, be tween Montreuil and St Omer. The second con sisting of 50,000 men, will form near Marsailles The English government, on its side, are preparing troops, and fleet capable of transporting, in case ot necessity, the torces which they may judge ue cessarveither in the Baltic or in the Black Sea. The Paris correspondent of the London Times remarks: ru It is not difficult to guess for what object the camp of 100,000 men is formed, and there is little doubt that the opinion of superior officers of the army with reference to an expedition to the Baltic is well founded. It is said that both Revel aud Helsefors will be occupied, and the shutting up of the Gulf of Finland completed. The object of the establishment of the camp in the south is to have reinforcements at hand for the army of the East, and very probably to make a descent on the Crimea w hile the combined fleets attack Sebastopol. The government naturally keep their plan of operations 1 enveloped in secrecy, butny one who is aware of the determination of both England and France to act with utmost vigor, and thereby shorten as much j in error in 111s supposition as to the ultimate desti nation of these forces. The establishment of the camp between Mon treuil and St. Omer is thought to be quite as much as possible the period of the war, will not be much directed towards Prussia as towards the Baltic or the Gulf of Finland, and, in case Prussia showed symptoms of foul play, it is not imposssible that that army, joined by a formidable Belgian contin gent, would find its way to the banks of the Rhine. It is whispered that the Emperor reserves to himself the command of this fine army and that he will establish his camp at Pont-de-Brie. where his uncle had once his headquarters. He will have his Guards with him. The corps of 50,000 men at Marseilles will, it is said, be commanded by General Rostoran. THE ENGLISn WAR BUDGET. In the House of Commons on the 8th inst, the English Chancellor of the Exchequer brought in his war budget He proposes to meet the expen diture of the war by increased taxation and to avoid having recourse to a loan. The following from a daily London paper gives a succinct account SSAC- 1 .!, .

The in crease in taxation, therefore, already proposed for the pi esent year will, with the former grant, amount to 10,157,000, Whether the mode of raising so large an amount of revenue be the best that cau be devised, it is, perhaps, difficult to say, but we think that it ts as free from the charge of obstruction, to the trade and industry of the country as any plan which tax ation to the same extent may be inflicted on the people. We trust that, through our increased and increasing trade, as shown by the official returns, of which we gave the substance on Saturday last, the additional demands thus necessarilyjnade upon 113 will not be very severely felt. IMPORTANT FROM PERSIA. Under the title of "Rupture between Persia aud Russia;" the Journal de Constantinople publishes the following on the incident mentioned in the dis patches from Constantinople: According to the letters from Teheran, written by persons in a position to be well-informed, the Russian ambassador extraordinary, Count Kanicoff, who had been sent to Persia to extort fresh conces sions from the Shah, and force him to declare him self against the Sublime Porte, and who, from un favorable circumstances, thought it prudent to stop at Tiflis, is said to have sent from that place to M. Dolgorouki, Russian minister at the court of Per sia, an order to call on the Persian government, by means of an ultimatum, to declare within 2 hours whether it intended to take part with Russia against Turkey. Tno same letters announce that the Shah of Persia is said to have replied to this arrogant ultimatum by giving orders to 50,000 men to proceed to the Turco-Persian frontiers, under the command in chief of Mehemet Kahn, his minister of war. The Shah is said to intend to demand from Russia the restitution of the provinces which have been taken from him at different periods. If this news be confirmed, it may be considered very favorable to Turkey and her allies. ATTITUDE OF AUSTRIA. It is stated on good authority here that Russia recently notified Prussia that she had determined to address an ultimatum to Austria, calling upon her to explain her conduct, and summoning her, rather peremptorily, to declare herself either for or against, but, at all events, -todeclare herself. The Prus sian Minister replied, that he Emperor of Russia need not give himselt'Tiny trouble of addressing an ultimatum to Austria, as he (the Persian) well knew and could not tell beforehand the nature of the answer that would be given. Nearly at the same time Austria informed Prussia that she also was to address an ultimatum to Russia, calling upon her to account for her intrigues and her revolution ary attempts in the States of neighboring sove riegns, and particularly Monte-negroJ' when she (Austria) was determined to piitilown by force the revolt Sho also'reproaches Russlafwith her con duct in the Principalities, and insists upon their evacuation. When ultimatums of such a kind are passing to and fro, we may soon expect something more serious. CONSTERNATION AT ST. PETERSBURG. A letter from the Baltic of the 2Gth ult, in the Moniteur, says: The thaw Of the Neva is expected in two days. The ice has already broken tip in the Gulf at a little distance from Cronstadt, which will be very probably accessible at the end of the month. The approach of hostilities is strongly felt at St. Petersburg, and measures are being taken with a view to dangers which are profoundly apprehended, though denied. Four batteries have just been es tablished at the entrance of the Neva. The trea sure in the fortress was sent eijjht days ago to Moscow. From the 27lh, the command of the town will be divided between four military govern ors, and.the stale of siege will be applied.in all its rigor. Many persons are leaving for the interior of the country. The departure of the Emperor foa Peterhoff, where the court was to have gone onthe27th, is adjourned. The displeasure (me conientemeht) caused by the policy of Austria was everj day expressed morp "openly. It had been affirmed in some saloons, that the government wa3 preparing to place that power, by an ultimatum, under the necessity of pronouncing for or against it R.C. ANDERSON H. STOXEL.AKE.
