WASH IXUTOX ITEMS. Ill the Senate on the 7tli, Mr. Dixon of fered a serieH of resolutions mssetl by the Connecticut Legislature, asking for tho equality of all men before the law, and par ticularly the right of BtifTragc for the negro. As that Stale has. emphatically repudiated the negro-equality doctrines of the resolu tions t-inec the Legislature waft in pcsmoii, the attempt to force them ujion the consideration mil action of Congress would seem tho height of ofliciousne?M and impertinence to anybody but a Jilack Kcimbliean.

Concerning the bill recently introduced by Mr. Sumner into tho Senate, "to carry out the principles of republican government in the District of Columbia," oilers a curious example of the old maxim that "extremes meet." TIiom? of our fellow-citizens, says the r":t'..;.(i Intelligencer, who have here tofore feared that the distinctions of color would be tolallv abolished in the District of Columbia, so that there would be no differ ence what color judges, lawyers, jurors, etc., should have, will learn with satisfaction that the opposite principle is to have the power ful support of Mr. Sumner, who is not only in favor of preserving the discrimination by law, but of fixing it in the very sanctip nry of justice, the jury-box, to which Mr. Hurke said all the constitutions nud laws of England were but acexwory. Due Motion of Mr. Sumner's bill, in con formity to the principle of abolishing all dis crimination on account of color, would make It illegal to know whuthcr a voter was white or colored, and in order to force this oblite ration of the distinction, another section provides that the jury who arc to try the violation shall be half white and half col ored. That is, to denv the distinction of color we shall affirm the distinction of color; that the law may ignore the diffircniv, the law shall recognize tho dillurencc; that color shall cense to be known in court, color shall enter into the vcrv constitution of the court.

Tho escape of Stephens, the Irish " Head Centre," from his prison in Dublin, news of which was received in this city yesterday, has created quite a commotion in the ranks of 'he brotherhood. The Union Square headquarters were brilliantly illumina ted last evening in honor of the event, and there was quite a display of fireworks from the roof of the building. Notwithstanding the success which tints far, apparently at least, has attended the do ings of the Fenian, there appears to be trouble foincwhero in the organization, if wc may judge of the following documents handed to as for publication by a committee of the Senate, That body, it appears, has been in session at 731 Uroadway for several days, and transacted considerable business tendins to promote the objects of the Feni an movement. The financial condition of the organization lias l)ecn discussed, at length, and as will be tieen by the following resolutions, gome decisive action has been taken in regard to the bonds of the "Irish Republic," quite a number of which have been issued by unauthorized parties. The annexed preamble and resolutions ehow that no bonds have as yet been issued, nor will any be issued until the agent of the " Irish Republic" has been regalarly appointed by the Senate, in accordance with the rules laid down for the government of the broth erhood bv the convention which met in Philadelphia last month. The following are the resolutions adopted by the Senate yesterday: . . Whereat, The Senate of the Fenian llroth cihood has received authentic information that bonds to the amount of sixty-eight thou sand dollars (CSjOOO,) purporting to be issued on the credit of the Irish Republic, are about to be put iu circulation; and have in some instances already Iieen sold and issued to par ties as genuine and valid bonds of the Irish Republic; and Wntrea, These bonds bear on their face the name of a part v as agent of the Irish Re public, who not only has never been confirm ed for that position by the Senate of the Fenian Brotherhood, as required by the con stitution, but on the contrary was rejected by that liody when submitted for such con firmation; and, Wfieretu, The Senate of the Fenian Broth hood has been in session at No. 791 Broad wav, New York, for some davs, and has duly notified the President of the Fenian Brother hood of such session, without receiving from lnm anv nomination for the liosition of aeon of the Irish Republic, and as any bonds so issued arc invalid and issued in violation o the Constitution : therefore. Tho Senate of the Fenian Brotherhood hereby notifies members of the Fenian Brotherhood, aud the public at large, that all such bonds arc invalid, and illegal, and that the issue and cale ol such bonds shall be dealt with as a fraud on (he organization, in accordance with the annexed resolution adopted by the Senate, a copy of which has been furnished to the President of the Fenian Brotherhood.

It is stated that the Uovcrn mcnt received a dispatch from Washington stating that a raid on New Ilrunswick had been planned. Jt is generally believed that nothing more than a plundering expedition is thought of, and measures have been taken to guard the banks and other property, both in the city and on the lrontier. niooily Truiredy In MIsslsslpplA Son Murder a I'limlly Tlie Mother, Nun, anil Tlirce SMers Dead-The Fiitlier mill n Sitter AVoiiiiiIod. From tho Memphis Appeal, Dec. 5.J Tames Thompson left his home eight or ten vears ago. About a vcar,smcc lie re turned to the home of his father, near IsrooksviIIe, on the Mobile and Ohio mil road. .Tames exhibited to his father what appeared to be authentic and oflicial letters troin i'eru, showing that lie was a citizen of that countrv, and had been in the Peruvian armv. hen tins man arrived at home the Federal armv was approaching Hrooksville, and young Thompson persuaded his father 1 11 . . .. ! .1 .1 I, io ueeu ins property io nun, so mat ne could legally place it under the protection of the 1'eruvian Hag. James lias recently been organizing a col ony lor J5ra7.il. ile sold stock from that place, and his last act was to place one hun dred bales of cotton on a Hat boat on the Tombigbce river, which Hows within a few l e ii i n.. nines ui imrjKsviuu The father became nlarmed, and, it ai- pcars, left home on Tuesday of last week, for liaincsville, to obtain legal advice as to the proper steps to take in restraining hU son. It tippears, however, that this n:ovc was made quietly, and that the relations of .lames with the family, which consisted of lils step-mother, three half-sisters and a half-brother, were entirely cordial. There is ali-o a full brother, named Joseph, who it is feared is accessory to .lames. On Sunday morning .Tames approached the house anil inquired of the negroes in the yard if all were well, lie then entered the'house, and it appears, shot his nster Margaret with a shot-gun, as she was in the act of dressing herself. She had one stocking on and had another in her hand. The shot took effect in her right shoulder and side, nearly tear ing the arm from the body, and mangling the side most horribly. The mother was heard by her daughter Jemima, who was up stairs, to beg her son mot piteouslv not to shoot ; but a second report followed, and the mother was found dead, shot in the right shoulder and side, on the lloor back of the boil. The mother and daughter must have died instantly. The murderer then entered the room of his brother, Clay, whom he shot in the forehead, killing him instantly. Clay was also heard by the girls above stairs beg ging his brother not to shoot him. The two girls up Mairs clo-ed and lwlted their door: but the terrible man ascended the stairs and forced it open. Jemima slipped by him, rushed down, nnd was on tho threshold of the door, when che was seized bv tho shoul der and flung back into the room, and shot in tlie Hack ol tho head with a pistol. She mu-t die. From the direction of the fatal shot she must have Wen on her knee, beg ging for her life. The murderer then again went up stairs and shot the last and voung cst sister, named Emma, in the shoulder and breat. She got under tho lied, wjiere ho fired two shots at her. She abandoned this position and placed herself liehind a ward robe. Here she received two shots, one in the side and one in tho left thigh. This young girl may recover. James now left the house and proceeded to the river, where his cotton Wit was moored. He met his father and the sher iiTof the county. He aimed deliberately at his Cither, but the cap snapped. Ho tired the second barrel, but it was knocked up by a by-ct.uider, and passed harmlessly over the father's head, lie then drew his" pistol and fired twice, one shot taking ctTect in the body of the father, who now clenched the deperado, and after a fierce struggle he was tiound. The hue and cry wa raised, nnd citizens from Itrooksville followed the ruffian to the river, wiio were with ditiiculty restrained from burning him. He i in "jail at Ma con.

He tells them the Government has no lands in Texas to give them, even if it intended to inakcsucli donations, which it does not. Thev must work, be honest, industrious and morai, and obey tlie laws, or else the laws will sure ly reach them. He dispels the falsehoods- told them that thev were to have a errand distribution of white people's property made to tlicm at Christmas.

Ihe General announces a fact of which the readers of the Courier have already been advised that the Constitutional Amend ment prohibitine slavery has been adonted by the requisite number of States. The in stitution having been thus abolished in all the States bv virtue of this action. the question need be no lonecr a subiect of discussion and irritation in Kentucky. It has been done without her aid and assis tance and against her protests : but the action having been consummated by a power to which all must yicld; it now" becomes our people to realize our situation, and like good citizens, conform thCir arrangements and ac tion to the new order of tliiucs.

Whatever doubts may hare heretofore ex isted on the subject, slavcrv luis now ceased to exist in Kentucky, and with it fall all the laws of the State hcretoforein force intended for it supports General Orders number thirty-two (32) and forty-nino (49) and all other orders from these headquarters, relating to the is suing of parses to colored people, having be come unnecessary, are tlieretorc rescinded. rrom henceforth colored people will be un der the protection of the general laws of the land, and if the owners or operators of boats or railroads shall disregard their undoubted right to travel at pleasure, upon conforming to reasonable regulations, they arc adviicd to apply promptly to tin courts" for redros.

Diaphanotypcs arc painted by the minia ture jiaintcr on jirocclain, which ha first been impressed with the exact features of the sitter through the photographic process. This requires first that the photographer should be skillful ami a true artist, and next, that theminature painter should have all the gifts which would make his pictures on ivory beautiful and deirable. The translucent surface of pot&lain thus conveys to tho eye a moro elegant picture than could have been procured on ivory, and by far a more exact protrait than the artist'n pencil could alone produce.
