BROOKVILLE, APRIL, 30, 1859
Tha Xamai Swindla.
It tt a thought after tlo decided ma
oritics agnimt it, na Indicated by the
rot l.i favor of the Crittenden, Mont
gomery amendments, it would "bleep
tbo sleep that kuows'no waking." Tho
Anti-Lecorunton men regarded it con
ferenco comwittco a meto furin,from
which "no evil" would como. Tho im
portunities of a corrupt onbcciU and de
feated administration triumphod, with
thoso protending auti-Lecotupton Dem
ocrats, and a Committeo of Confcrcnco
ws appointed on the purtof the IIouso,
with EnglUh of our SStato a its Chair
man. Wo thought from tho flrt, though
under MM of courtly towards the
Sonato, that all might thereby bj lost.
It wai just so with tho Kansas Nebras
ka bill repealing tho Missouri Compro
mise, and wo Hadder now for tho con
oquencca that may follow a similar mis
take if not corrupt morcincnt.
"Who in nil our State, that has known
personally "Bill English" and hU polit
ical history, believed lor a moment that
ho was defcignatod for tho important pout
for other than corrupt purpose? Tho
only wan of tho old lino party who
dared to adhere to his preavowed scnti
monta favorublo to tho repeal of the
Missouri line, that wa returned to Con
rrcsa front our Stato in iB5 1. Tho suh
tlo tool of Jcsic I). Bright, and by him
put forward to do tho "dirty werk" of
their common maitor. And well has it
been done. Such a compromise, befit
ting its pusillanimous authors -"con-coined
in siu and biouLt forth in in
iquity." How long is tho country tobe
thus tried for iu hott comings? And
how soon is to bo demonstrated that the
"God first make mad thofte whom they
would destroy V
By virtuo of this free conference com
roitto compromise, or aa it is called
'English'" tho LanJ ordinance ac
companying tho "Lccompton Constitu
tion" after being amended so as to
give to Kansas about 3,000,000 acres of
land for internal improvement and
other purples, is to bo sub
mitted to ft veto of the Atopie of
Knns.n, and if adopted, the statt to be
admitted by Proclamation ot tho Pres
ident. If tin ordinaneo in rejected,
Kansas is to remain a territory until by
an cjfficuil census klio contains at Icut
03,000 inhabitants.
To what ahifta will not this wilting
administration resort? It first defraud
ed, then .threatened, then coaed and
now' would bribo the pcoplo of Kansas
to accept and adopt a dlavo constitution,
und yet they will not succomb.
English, this new born states
roan this freo slato tool of tho slave
power, in imitation of his great proto
type, holds out beforo them almost a
'kingdom of the world," and promises
in tho namo of his masters that nil this
land will they giTO unto them if they
will but full down and worship their
elaro idol, but truo to their inntinets,
and common humanity, they answer in
thunder tones "get theo henco Satan."
Tho South with their northern allies,
pretend they want peace that they are
tired of eternal agitation of th
Kansas question." Why do they
refuse to submit thia Jjccomjiton
Constitution icith slartry and the Lcavhi
worth Constitution vcithout shivery to a
voto of tbo people of that Territory?
Why do they reeewe Minnesota and oth
er territories a States with Ivm number
than the Federal quota for a Represen
tative to CongresH, and refuse to receive
Kansas n a Stato autil sho has that
population unless sho will consent to
como in under Locompton as a slave
state? Why in short, this utter aban
donment of the nowly inaugeratcd
theory of "nquattcr sovereignty? ' It is
that under tho popular namo of "De
mocracy" they may shift their position
on every question of tho day as may
suit tho wishes and dictates of the South;
to extend and perpctuato slavery at
whatever sacrifice, and give to tho slave
power permanent control of tho policy
and destiny of this Union.
It is timo tho workingmcn of the
Country, tho real, genuine Democracy,
look to theso matters as thoiAUO is fast
nssumming that of Slice against free
Ulor. When they do, tho tottering
thrones of Demagogues mnnt turnblo as
, x cob house before thcoverwhclming tide
cf popular feeling. Tho issuo is fairly
joined, on one sido of which is the Pres
ident of tho United States with his
hoard of oßico holders and seekers,
allied to tho slavo olegurchy of the
ÜJouth, and on tho other, the great ma
of the working men, tho truo lovers of
tbo Union, tho real Democracy of the
Country. With thia isfeuo and these
parties who doubts tho result and its
consequence to tho whole Union?
Ia 1855 Tvo were told to repeal tho
Missouri Compromiso line And let the
people of tho several territorienlncrrpo
rat In or rejoct slavery from tho organic
law of the now States to be formod, and
peace and quiet would follow. It was
done, and anarchy, and confussion, mur
der And border ruffianism prevailed.
We are now told in the teeth of every
pooploof Kanflus should regulato their
own airiirs in their own way," that for
tho sako of poaco and to get rid of this
eternal Kansas quostlou" just admit
Kansas with tho Lcmccmjdon shivery
Constitution and all will bo well: and
ono of our own dough faced, Dema
gogues ia to bo made tho willing tool by
whom tho people of Kansas are to be
offered with ono hand a bribe aud with
the other a threat.
Kansas can neither bu bought or
seared, they havo already given cvi
denco "that tho blood of ''mnrtvra is
tho seed of tho church." Over her
dowered Prairies has already flown too
much blood of freo men to ever sutler
tho "dunk of chains cr tread of the
foot of slaves" on her soil ns u virgin
State.
Washington City.
Erom tho proceeding of Congress
wo learn that tho city of "magnificent
distances" U about to bo demolished
and its citizerm robbed and murdered
by what wo supposo to bo a deputation
from that hoard ot border rufllans,t'd,
paid and supported by tho administra
tion to thwart and override tho popular
expression of tho freemen of Kann..
It was utatcd in debato on a pt opo.sition
to authorize tho employment of a po
lice force of one hundred men to protect
tho city, that already hinco tho organi
zation of tho present session of Con
gress thcro had been thirteen, nttompts
to murder on tho tritt, a part in day
light, and) several succes&fal. Ono of tho
objections urged wan, that tho appoint
ment ol tho chief of polieo was to be
made by tho President, aud that Mr.
Bu';hanan would probably ajjoint from
among his partisans tlicro present, who
might bo one of thoo "border ruffian."
It is well known and humiliating, that
the notorious Calhoun was followed to
Washington by a servilo pack of his
banditti, who have been hangers on
about Cdngress, as advocates of the Lc
compton Constitution.
From the duto of their arrival Wash
ingtoti City has ceased to bo safe- from
the nsfwiiin wenjvw. Is it retnarka
blo that gentlemen should object to the
appointing power in the President, as
that chosen chief of Police would have
tho selection of his ono hundred subal
tern? Such is really the want of confidence
in tho chief executive of this gnat na
tion, that honorable, candid men fear to
entrust him with this appointment.
What a lesson to men in, aud (seeking
political power ! Bewaro of tho rnek
on which tho the President has wreck
cd his future, and unliko him, frown
down nil evil, r.lthongh you may think
that prose: t good' may ' spring from it.
OenL Janes Foley.
Tho member of Congress from this
District greatly to the surprise and ap
phm'so of his former political opponents
hereabouts, was found arraying himself
on the side of tho pcoplo on the Kan
sas issue, and disregarding tho impor
tunities of Bright Fitch and Robinson.
With u clean record on Mm question we
regarded Cicnl. Foley as a mo?t formid
able man fortr-clcction. Tho late news
from Washington reports his diversion
from tho real Democracy to tho slave
power. Wo sincerely regret thn, as
Foley is a clever man, and will unques
tionably by this treachery to his con
stituents dink politically beyond tho
arm of caucus ' resurrection.
Leconiptoa and Anti-Lecomptoa Conven
tion. Tho Buchanau and Douglas con von
tion met at Springfield, III., on the 21st
instand organized separately. In the
former twenty-eight counties wcro rep
resented, and resolution strongly en
dorsing tho Administration wcro pass
ed. In the latter ninety-eight counties
wero represented, and resolutions en
dorsing the courso of tho Illinois dele
gation in Congress wero passed without
a dissenting voice. W. B. Eon dry was
nominated for Superintendent of Pub
lic Instruction.
The Buchanan Convention postponed
nominations until tho Sth of June.
fciytfenator Hale announced in a ro
cent speech, that it ivan tho intention of
tho Government to ask, beforo tho pres
ent session of Congress, authority to
borrow S30,00ö,00ö, iu order to meet the
exigencies beforo us. Tho Socrctarj' of
the Treasury thinks he might bo ublo
to get along with $20,000,000, but had
better, while his hand is in, havo thirty,
so as to bo sure. What an additional
commentary upon tho aversions of his
party only a year ago, that we had
millions of surplus in ourvavlts!
saTBoth Nouses of Congress luvd
agreed to adjourn the session on tho 7th
of June, but the correspondent of the
Philadelphia Frew thinks that unless
tho appropriation bills aro considered
and passed soon, tho Senate requiring
timo to consider and amend them, if
amendments be required, the day will
bo put as distant as July.

Rev. Allen McFarland.
; Mr. Editor: Wo noticed in tho p:o-
cccdingaof "Whilo Water Prcfcbvtcry"
as reported by 'Spcotutor" in your pu
per of last week, tliat they had appoint
ed a Commission to inteHtiguto charge
made against our old friend nnd former
pastor of the Presbyterian church of
this placo, which appeared in an article
over the Rignaturo of Charles Raymond
Bsq., and published in tho "Indiana Bul
letin" of Cambridge City. Wenrogr.it
ified ns a personal friend of Mr. McFur
land, that ho has taken this coureo, us it
is duo to him and tho church of which
hu is a minister, that tho matter bo
fully ami fairly investigated. v
. Tho artido of Mr, Raymond professes
ostensibly to correct erroneous or mista
ken Impressions, but virtually attacks
thn christian character of Mr. Me.Far-
land, and at tho sanio timo endorses
him "us an honorable upright man."
It is not to defend Mr. McFarland from
imputations of want of christian char
actor, from whatever source; ns that
character is too well established cud
known in this community and within
tho bounds ot his Prtsbytary U ie
quiro defence from Ud, but to disap
prove the nnti christian course chosen
und spirits manifested by Mr. Raymond
to adjust difUcultics or misundestand
ings with his late minister. Tho "Bul
letin" is a secular newspaper published
at Cambridge City in this stale. The
church of which Mr. ' Raymond is n
member and Mr. McFarland was minis
ter, provides ample remedies for parties
at difference, and to these tribunals and
not through a sccvlar newspaper beforo
tho vnrerj filtrated public, wo think Mr.
Raymond should have summoned his
brother and lato minister, it in aught
ho had offended. "Daro any of you, hav
ing a matter against nr.other, go to law
beforo tho unjust and not before tho
Saints?
Of tho particular matter in didVrcncc
or tho motives that prompted tho courso
of Mr. Raymond, wo cannot speak
knowingly, but wo havo known Mr.
McFarland pcnonallyauil intimately from
Ids first arrival in our midst, nnd from
daily intercourse as our neighbor, and
frequent attendance on his ministry
whilo here, unhesitatingly eniorsc him
a thorough gentleman and model chris
tian. We sincerely regretted his remo
val from our place and expected, that
among our ojd friends at CambrMgo ho
would receive a cordial welcome, a permi
ncnt and pleasant abiding place.
Wo aro gratified at tho course of
Presbytery, and feel confident that a
full and fair investigation of tho char
ges will in no wise lessen our estimation
of Mr. McFarland 'as a christian rainfi,.
ter and social gentleman.

The Union Prayer Meeting
Is still in piogVess holding its meet
ings alternately nt tho Methodist and
Presbyterian Churches each week.
Tho good churchmen of our town have
secured one important point, they have
broken the ice and knelt in prayer to
gether. Wo wero present at tho last
meeting and favorably impressed with
tho pcnsiblo interrogatory propounded
at tho clo-o of the service, by the lead
er Mr. Jackson Lynn, tow-it: "Did you
ever know a family of children assem
bled around tho common hearth stone
ufraid of each other?" It was a chris-
tain but severe rebuko to those wanting
in christian fellowship, and wo hope
will induce churchmen to examine care
fully their own hearts.
Wc tli ink thcro is yet hope for this
seemingly benighted town, but that
hope hangs on the efforts of the church.
Just so long ns thechurch is itself un re
vived, tho world around it is without
tho Comforter.
"Don't givo np the ship is a motto
not ur worthy even tho causo of Christ,
and wo would exhort our friends to
cling but closer to tho horns of tho al

Commercial Failures this Year.
The New York Herald this morning
publishes a list of tho failures during
tho past eighty days of the present
year in tho United States. It loots. up
the wholo number at 1,105; nnd tho lia
bilities at S3O,C20,0n0. The greatest
number of failures, and tho largest lia
bilities, belong to tho State of New
York, footing up as it docs 2."i7, with
debts to the amount of $3,41G,GOO. Of
this total, 74 of the failures ocenred in
the city of Now York, and S'J.fiSl.OOO
of tho debts arc their consequences.
Illinois is tho next largest defaulter,
with 10.") failures, and $3,743,000 liabil
ities. Pennsylvania is set down to 131
failures, with $2,270,000 debts. New
Jersey has had 23 failures, with liabili
ties to tho extent of $230,000. The
winding up of theso concerns aro but
tho legitimate offspring of tho recent
panic, and wcro only Mavcd oT n. the
timo I13 tho grace of extension. It is
urged by tho Herald that tho passago of
a general bankrupt law is tho only rem
edy to prevent ftill further suspensions
and revivo a health action in trade
If it would havo tho effect to check the
insano speculation in stocks and wes
tern lands, which is already commenc
ing and to which we rro indebted more
than anything else, for the resent panic.
Congress would accomplish at least one
meriotrious act by its immediato pass

Death of tho Eov. Dudley Tyug, ,
By Telegraph from Philadelphia, lat
evening, wo received the painlu! Intelli
jroneeof tho death of Rev. Dl'DLn A.
Tyno, formerly ltectorof Christ Church,
in this city, and lately Pastor if a new

in Philadelphia. An accident, which
led to this end event, happenedon Tues
day morning last, near hi residenco tit
Brookfiuld, Montgomery Co.. Pa., while
witnessing the operation of a corn-shcIN
ing mac ni no. . lluving stepped on the
inclined plane, ho placed his band on
that portion of the instrument known
ns tho "mule." when his dressing-gown
became entangled iu tho wheels of tho
apparatus, which lacerated his arm in
the most rrigiiuui manner, noin mo t i
btv to tlo bbouldcr, severing the main
artery uTT a vein, and inflicting- the
most excruciating pain.
, On Satdrday morning, tho condition
the of wound "was eo bad, (symptoms
of mortification having appeared) it bo
camo evident that imputation was nec
essary ns tho only means of saving Iiis
life. The operation was accordingly
performed by Dr. Alice, who took otf
tho right arm, closo to tho shoulder
joint.
Tho many menus oi .ur. xu in tins
city, will deeply lament this melancholy
occuriw- He was u young man of
frtpttUhvati as a astor and preach
er,' ho had fwW equals in tho Church of
which ho was a minister, llcwas quite
liberal in his views regarding other de
nominations of Chistiuiis, following. In
this respect, tho example of his distin
guished father, Dr. Ty.no of Jfew York;
and while ministering in this city he,
on several occasions occupied tho pul
pits of other than Episcopal Churches.
IIo moved above and outside tho rango
of sectarian bigotry, or cclesiastical ex
clusiveness; nnd ho was generally re
garded as ono of the most promising
minUter cf tho ago.
His loss will bo most severely felt in
the field inwhich he has recently labor

t)""'Tho United Synod of tho Pies
byterian Church in tho United States of
America, vssembied ul kuoxvillo on
Thursday oveninir, thp 1st of April. A
list of delegates h given from the "Sy
nod oi Virginia.," "Synod off ennessee,"
Synod of Vc:d Tennessee," and "Sy
nod of Mississippi." Tho "United Sy
nod, lies prayers, hymns and sermons,
adopted a delegation of principles.
First win a preamble, reciting tho
causo of tcparation from the (icneral
Assembly: Slavcholding is of course,
tho great Humbling block. Concern
ing thi?, they declcare that:
As slavcholdiiig, or the relation be
twieti master and tlavo is not referred
to in the-Confession of Faith, cither di
rectly or' indirectly, ns un offence, it

the liissis of discipline.
Thcja affirm tlnt .slaveholders were
aimiKal into the' churches organized
by the Apostles, and as neither they nor
their muster though living in the
midi-t of slaveryhad ever intimated
that tho relation was sinful, but gave
instructions how they were to bo treat
ed, that therefore any attempt to ex
clude slaveholders from communion, is
an attempt to legislate where tho great
head ol tho .church has not legislated.
They declare as the sense of tho Synod
that .the. agitation ot the question ot
slavery, except so fir as relates to the
moral und religious duties arising out
ot it. is inconsistent with tho design of
their withdrawal from Use (icneral As
sembly. They ignore tho discussion cf
the question:
Douglas Victorious in Illinois.
It lias hardly been doubtful for a mo
ment that Mr. Douglas would carry
with hira, in his opposition to the Pres
ident's policy, the bulk of his party
in Illinois; but wo doubt if any body
anticipated so decided a preponderance
iisisbhown to day by tho telegraphic
report of tho Stato Convention at
Springfield on Wednesday. Tho Bu
chanan men, it ieeiiis, found tho pros
pect of getting tho control of tho Con
vention in their own hands, hopeless,
nnd just gave up tho effort rt once,
without making a fuss about it. They
organized a separate convention, with
twenty-eight counties repre-ented.
Tho Douglas men represented ninety
Seven counties. The proportion of
strength in tho Stato is not far different
Irom this proportion of representation.
Douglas counts about thicoor four to
one. His men mado tho regular Demo
cratic nomination, and hold tho "pres
tige" of tho regular organization, thus
driving tho President's party into oppo
sition -lIlO fust time that feat was ever

they might as well extend indefinitely,

FROM WASHINGTON.
. Washington April 22
On Thursday, tho Hout.0 proceeded to
thy conidcralion!of Morrill bill grant
in.i hinds to the several States fvr the
benefit oK Agriculture and t'.'C Meenau-
io Arts.
Tho bill grants six million'' three
hundred und forty thousand acres ot
land to bo apportioned to each Stato,
equal to twenty thousand acres to each
Senator und Representative in Congress,
to which they uro now respectively entitled.-
i
Tho money derived from tho sales to

hu uiwsii'u 111 uimeu oiaics, oiaie, or
of her safe stock, yielding not less than
live per centum.
Moneys thus invested, to constitute n
perpetual fund, tho interest of which is
to be inviolably appropriated to the en
dowment, support and maintenance of
at least ono college, whoo leading ob
ject fchall be, without excluding other
scientific or classical studies1, to teach
such branches of learning as aro rela
ted to agriculture- and tho mechanic
arts, in such manner as tho Logical uro
mat' consider proper to promote a libvr
al and practiced education of tho indus
trial classes in tbo several pursuits and
professions In life. Among other con
ditions upon which thegrunts are made,
is ono requiring each State to provide
no less than ono college, within five
years.
Tho bill was passed: Yeas 101; nays
IUI.
WAPHixnToN, April 23, House. At
nine o'clock, on motion ot English, tho
Committee rofio when he mado a report
from tho Committee ot Uonterence on
tho Kansas bill.
It is signod by English nnd Stephens
on tho part of the House; and Green
and Hunter, on tho part of tho Senate.
Seward aud Howard dioscnt.
Tho report was read.
Tho majority report provides for the
admission of Kansas nudor the Leeomp
ton Constitution, dependent on tho ac
ceptance of tho ordinaneo submitted.
If rejected, provision is to bo made for
the formation of a now constitution.
English aked that the report be prin
ted, and further consideration postpon
ed until to-morrow.
Howard suggested postponmont un
til Thursday eck, for reasons stated.
Hall moved to postpone further con
sideration till tho second Monday in
May. Agreed to yeas 1()S; nays 10.").
Pending a motion to rooonsider the
vote, and to lay that motion on tho ta
ble, the House adjourned.
Senate. Green asked loavo to make
a report from the Co'nmittco of Con
fercneft on the Kansas Bill.
Stuart raied objections, which pro
voked a long discussion, 011 tho point
that parliamentary law gavo to the
IIouso possession of tho bill, and the
Scnuto not having tho bill b fore it,
could not proceed to a consideration.
Stuart asserted his belief tlv.'.i 1! ob''I
was beforo tho House.
Broiierick inf-rnied tho fj n .to ti.ra
within tho last four miii'iws li.e bill
had been laid on Green's desk, a mem
ber of the House, (Hams, of III.,) hav
ing informed him (BroJerick) that it
win surreptitiously taken oat of the
IIouso.
Green Faid that tho bill was on his
dek, having been brought front tht
Sccretary's ofiice.
After further discussion, Stuart moved
that tho report be not received at pres
ent.
The Chair decided that Green had
tho floor to present tho report, which
ho did with a few preparatory remarks
He said that tho report might not come
up to the expectations of everybody.
out it was tounded on mutual conces
sion.
It was proper that the Senate should
not be dictated to by the House, nor
tho House by the Senate. 1 ho Commit
teo therefore, met in a spirit of concilia
tion, and tried many propositions;
whether it has arrived at the best, he
could not say, but it sacrifices no prin
ciple. It harmonizes with what the
country demands, and opens tho pros
pect of peace and a settlement ot the
pending difliculties.
Vasuingto.v, April 23d.
In the House to-day, English, in pre
senting tho report, said that in view of
the state of rublie business, and tho fact
that this subject had already been more
thoroughly uiscusscJ than any proposi
tion ever brought before Congress, he
did not propose to make any extended
remarks. In consulting for a compro
mise, they were deeply impressed with
tho responsibility resting upon them,
and whilo adhering to what they believ
ed to be a groat principle, thoy had en
deavored to dischargo their duty in a
spirit which would not endanger the
passing of a great measure, and hazard
tho poaco of tho country for unimpor
tant points T unmeaning words.
This report was tho very last which
tho committeo could agree on, in view
of the embarrassing circumstances sur
rounding their action.
It is truo that tho report proposes the
admission of Kansas on a certain condi
tion, but in this respect it does not differ
from tho Senate Bill or tho House
amend ments.
Ho referred to tho Lccompton ordi
nance to show that tho proposition was
unadmissiblo.
By that ordinaneo Kansas would re
ceive 2ü,500,OUO acres of land, worth at
a maximum price, 829,500 0UO exclusive
of benefits.
Tho amendment proposed to give
grants similar to those mado to most of
tho now States, 20,000,000 acres le than
by the Locompton ordinance, making a
differenco to tho United States of
0HU.0ÜU
Tho report agreed upon might not be
fair, but if it fail, it is fair to presume
that parliamentary expedients will be
exhausted, and the question still be open
engendering sectional strife, and en
dangering the peace and prosperity of
tho country. If tho report is adopted,
tho question will depart, it is hopcu and
believed, never to return. This is a
proposition whero much is to bo gained
and nothing lost. So far as tho results
aro concerned, if lost, it will be unfor-
tunato for tho country, and ieril the
blessings which flow from tho Union.
Washington, April, 24, House.
Tho pending motion to reconsider the
voto postponing tho discussion of the
j report of th Conference Committee on.
tho Kansas Bill, and laying tho motion
on tho table, coining 11 p for considera
