H.FORTKH,- UUITOU. BROOKVILLE. MAY, 7, 1858 Lecompton Triumphant - The Kansas swindle passed the House as reported by the Committco of Con ference and 'BlacV Democracy triumph ed over "popular sovereignty." Eog lish aud Foley of our Stute, Grocsbeek and Pcudleton of Ohio, with other vreuk-backctl Dawjogucs, who at the iiiitmtton of thia question hurled back ihj "dastardly insinuation" that they could b6 tampered with, under tho in fluence) of proper manipulations were nicutlc and coy as maidens not yet out ot their teens. Tho influence of the administration which brought to bear on this question every possible ort pue within its power, has provod irre mftxtHt, and tho right of the people to "yotcrn themselves in their oirn icay" is trampled once more, under the heel of asurped authority, despoticully excrci bed. The proposition adopted, does not, as did tho Crittenden and Montgomery amendments, refer back to the people of Kansas the Lecompton Constitution to bo by them accejitcd or rejected, direct ; but it submits to them a and ordinance, which may bo celled tho English "at tachment," and if they vote to accept thia ordinance, then by proclamation of tho President, Kansas becomes a Stuto of tho Union, with the Lecompton con stitution recognizing and authorizing slavery. If the people reject tho ord i nance, then Kansas is refused tho privi lege of admission as a state until her population entitles her to one Represen tative in Congress, which will probably require after the next census 120,000. Thus virtually, theso "Black" Demo craU, pretended advocates of popular sovereignty, say to tho people of Kan sas, yoa may come now intotha Union under this flare constitution with only 40,000 inhabitants, and we'll givo you 11 tho lands offered you in tho submit ted ordinance to induco you to come; but if you refuse to accept tho Lecomp ton ilare constitution, you shan't bo ad mitted as a Stato until by a govern mental, border rufilan censu., it is shown yoa have a population of 120,000. And what is this bribe offered to in duco the free men of that beautiful ter ritory, on which th unmistakcablo An gara of creation has written, that no Slave Stato shall organize. It is First, That sections No. 10 and 30 of public lands in every township bo gran ted them for school purpose. Second, that 72 sections of land bo granted fur a state University. I'hird, Ten sections of land are giv en for the purpose of public buildings. Fourth, All salt springs not exceed ing derive, together with ix sections of land to each aro granted ''fonts use." Fifth, Firo per cent of net proceeds of talc of all tho public lands sold after her admission, for purposes of Internal Improvement. AH theso things will I givo theo if thou wilt full down and worship mo !" Tako these liberal offers, and slavery, ay tho Black Democracy nud wo'll con tinue to agitate until your population reaches tho representative quota. Take these, say tho minions of slavery, or tako tho Border Ruffians' rule of .Sheriff Jones whose hands are reeking with tho blood of freemen of Lecowpte, of Cato and that hoard of murderers whose inno cent victims spot tho fair fields of that beautiful Und. What say you freemen of Indiana ? What say you Democrats of otd Franklin ? Will you full into line and bo led by tho sycophants of executive power, at whoso bock and bid you must respond as submissively as tho Negro slave of the cotton field ? or will you in imitation of your great Douglas, the acknowledged champion of "popular sovereignty" follow whero ho leads? adhering to your every whero avowed principles, that tho peoplo of tho territory should bo permitted to mako "their own laws in their own way T We must stranglo political trickery and tricksters forgetold party animos ities, and unito as ono man in honest, determined efforts to restore tho gov ernment to prcstino purity and from the vampires who pray upon Its vitals. ttSTTho Rising Sun Visitor says that a band of somo thirty or furty (iip&ics vrero camped a short distanco below town during tho first part of last week. During their stay, tho femalo portion of .th band were busily engaged in 'for tttnO'tolling," by which they succeeded .!n relieving a number of weak-minded 'Men and women of a considerable sumo of money. Verily, "the foola aro not .all dead yet." It is understood that tho Administra tion will havo to call for a loan of thir ty millions, to redeem, in part, tho treas ury notes out standing.

Corporation Election. Tho election for officers of our town came off on Monday last, and was quite spirited. Thecxciteracnt however seem ed to bo all on ono bide. About two years sinco when it was found necessa ry to enlarge our grave yard, somo were in' favor ot removingjt entirely outof town, while others thought it best to purchase lots adjoining tho old grave yard and thus mako room for tho dead. There' was, however, but ono direction 1 in which tho graveyard could be exten ded, and that was towards tho west. But a btrcet intervened between the graveyard and tho lots lying in tho west. It was proposed that tho intervening street should bo vacated aud another opened on tho west hide of tho lots pro posed to be annexed to tho gravo 3-ard, and our town trustees passed an ordi nance to that effect. A new fence U about to bo built around tho gravo yard including the new grounds purchased. It wus thought by some that tho corporation ought not to yield a portion of their purchase to tho formation of a street. Property holders in that vicinity claim that the street having once been opened cannot bo closed without their consont, and ho riously object to having the gravo yard brought so near their property. The anti-street party brought out a ticket which met with but little opposi tion from tho pro-street party, tho latter being composed principally of persons interested in tho property thereabouts, who throw themselves on their legal right, for which they aro disposed to contend.

On Tuesdny last our town wa thr:wn into considerable excitement bv the arrival of ome half a dozen young ladies from Mctainora in the custody of Constable Kennedy and deputy Sheriff Lino. It seems that the ladies, who by tho by arc of tho most respectable class in Mctainora, had n neighbor woman who kept, as they thought, a rather dis orderly house and had more frequent gentlemen calls at unseemly bourn, than sho would perhaps havo had if her hus band had not been in California. On Saturday evening last some six or seven of tho young ladies, as it is nlledged, called on their neighbor woman, and rath er riotously put both her and her chat tels out of tho house. Tho lady thus unccrimoniously dis possessed, came hero ami after obtain ing legal counsel, got out a warrant for her neighbor girls, and it was in obedi onco to this, and not because our young friends Kennedy aud Line had any no tion of committing matrimony, that they thus escorted such a bevy of young ladies into town. Tho girls gavo security for their ap pcaranco on tho trext day and went home. Wednesday morning they re turned accompanied by about half tho citizens of Mctamora, who had been subpojnaod as witnesses. In the mcantimoan affidavit was filed charging tho prosecuting witness in tho riot ease, with a crimo much more pen al and shocking than tho ono for which tho girls wero arrested. Several other suits wero about commencing somo criminal and others civil, when a kind of a general compromise was mado of tho matter. Tho girls plead guilty to tho ehargo of riot ono was fined fifteen dollars and the remaining five, one dollar each with costs, and thus was smothered sundry examinations which would havo been a great nnnoyanco to tho citizens of Mctamora very expen sive a great tax on their timo by com pelting them to attend some half a doz cn or more sessions of Court give somo wives a more correct understanding of tho fidelity of their husbands and made many relations most shocking to a mor al and civil community.

Ma. Editor: Is thcro any police ar rangements in Brookville sufficient to protect peaceful citizens frcm midnight marauders? Is thero any protection for young ladies from tho indecent lan guage of vilo and drunken young men highly respectable young liieti who stagger about under cover of darkness to do their filthy deeds, rnd say their filthy sayings? Somo of your readers Mr. Editor, havo been very much dis turbed of lato by tho hideous midnight yelling of the pot-house scum of the town, and if tho sheriff hua any regard for tho public, peace, and will do his dut3- ho will populate tho guard-house with some of their carcasses before thev aro much older. ' CITIZEN. " Wo believe there in no special police force e tublishcd in this plaeo, but we have a town Marshal, whose duty it is to attend to such matters, instead of tho Sheriff. It is true that, as a peaco officor, the Sheriff has power to arrest such per sons, but in eases of tho kind montioncd, when perpetrated within our corporate limits, it moro directly devolves upon the Marshal. Tho conduct of somo of tho fast young men ol this placo of late, has bc como tho subject of very general re mark. Scarcely a night passes, but that crowds of ui ruly young men may bo seen in different localities, rendering the night hideous with their yells. This could bo endured to somo extent was it not for other depredations which they commit tearing down, and defa cing signs, disturbing chicken roosts, upturning out-houses, and other equ ally reprehensible things. "There is a time when patienco ceases to bo a virtue," and if our authorities do not tako tho matter in hand our citizens arc determined to put a stop to it, and wo would advise persons engaged in such conduct heretofore, to desist nt onco, as they will bo watched and brought to punishment, if they do not. We do not mean to intimidate any one, but wo do think that the peaco and quiet of our citizens fihould be protected from such intrusions. Wo need not say to you young men that your conduct is not right. You know it without being fur ther told. Would it not bo far better to look about you and grasp tho means of intellectual and social improvement that are constantly within your reach ? You were intended lur a far moro noble and glorious work. Now is tho time to sow the seed of intellectual honesty, and prepare yourselves for future usefulness in life. John L. Robinson's Speech. Saturday, May 1st, was the day ap pointed by tho illustriousMarshul oi In diana, to expound Lecompton to our citizens, lie was hero in due time, and it the appointed lioiir began bis expla nation, exposition, expostulation and excommunication. The court-room was probably two-thirds tilled, with a few Lcconiptonitcs, more Republicans, and still more Douglas men. John L. U a nice speaker usually fluent ami sophis tical. We cannot givo even a synopsis of his speech, as it was somewhat lengthy, and wonderfully mixed, lie considers lluchanau as a patriot, sage and Ktatesman; while Douglas accord ing to tho Marshal's notion is a fanatic, fool, knave, ivc. l'oor four lather Fo ley caught "fits" generally, and John L. emphatically declarod that this District has been misrepresented. It certainly was amusing to witness tho effort the speaker mado to infuse enthusiasm into the ranks. Hut it was a total failure. Not one chwer, not ono shout, not one sign of approbation greeted tho oar or cyo. All was as still us if tho occasion wr.s a funeral, rather than a political gathering. What a contrast between this and tho last timo wo heard Lardoil in the name place. Then tho building fairly shook with shouting, and there was a roar as of a tempest squatter sovreignty was then beiug explained and defended. Now this doctrino was being ignored and resisted. So palpa bly wrong was tho orator that his usu ally fluent tongue was Komctimes refus cd to obey its owner, and a painful em barrassment ensued. In a word, the speech was ft fizzle, vVo talked with several staunch Democrats alter the speech, but they were mute as mice in regard to tho merits or demerits of the harangue. John will have to come back before the election and trv to re pricvo his character as a speaker and as a successful whipper-in. lie did, how ever, the best possible for so bad a cause. Probably he can write some articles for his "Jacksonian," and get Hubert to fa ther them, and send them here for the party to digest If ho will beg tho De mocracy to Kt.'ind by him as hard as he begged them on Saturday, ho may per suadosomo of his friends to sustain him and the Administration through sheer pity. Tho Republicans desire him to come often and stay longer, as ho works for them "free gratis fr nothing," while Uncle Sam, or James Ibichanan prob t bly puts 10 per diem into hispurso for services rendered. Wo doubt very much, however, whether ho will ever visit us again, unless tho weather grow warmer, as it was certainly very chill ing to his feelings to find hinisclt in the wrong box.

Fur th Brooky& American. Young ti5ji,Uas Boyi, Alias Rowdies. Wo have in our midst a great many almost young men, and soine of theso boys are forming habits that will quali fy them for tho gutter, for tho jail, for tho penitentiary, auj finally for tho gallows. Do you cnqui.o what theso habits are ? Staud on tho street and to tho swagger of tho young b'hoy as he goes by under tho influcuco of liquor. Listen to the oaths as they issue in a stream from hi mouth, and then an swer for voursolves what theso habits are. Thero .are somo bins, that aro comparatively decent; suoh as horse Bteal ing, gambliiiJtc, but there are othors that aro very low, vulgar, and indecent, such as pilingboxes, wagons &c, beforo the doors of respectable persons, and overturning tho houses, and defacing tho property of quiet, inoffensive citi zens. Boys or men who aro guilty of such dirty tuiJcs as these ought to bo cowhided, or tarred and feathered and rodo on a rail. Such young mcn(f) aro poor, contcmptiblo excuses, and no po lito or inleligcnt lady will nssociato with such, if they aro awaro of their low lived conduct.

As a people wo tiro certainly highly favored in having so many litem ry privileges us we enjoy. Wo cannot be too grateful for the many educational facilities offered us in acmmunity, and ns a county.

Hut while all lovers of education rejoice in tho present prosperity of this Insti tution, there i )ct vuom for complaint and regret. How few nrt here in at tendance compared with tho number which ought to be here! It is true that somo of our good fanners in this County, and others, aro sending their children here, but not us immy do (end us ought to. Too many of our citizens K'nd their children elsewhere. Why this is the ease, we caunot com pre bend, unless it bo that these children are so bad that the parents desire to get thorn as far out of their sight as possible. If co, wo say send them and keep them away. But wo seriously think it far wiser and better for parents to send their children to school w here a strict oversight may bo kept by the parents over tho children. Jo man in our County, or in tho Whitewater valley can plead necessity for sending his chil dren away" to distant schools or Colleges, for none better can bo found than these in this town. But a very great majorityof our sub stantial farmers send their children to school nowhere. Not very long since wo visited ono of tho wealthiest town ships in Franklin Countv, and visited a very wealthy farmer, ile showed us his large barn with it windows and green shutters, nnd his warm stables, and his rainproof and well regulated pigpens. Ilo spoke highly of his stock, Lain, farm ivc. When we went into tho house wo saw peroral bright eyed children, and naturally we asked about their education, iVC Wo soon found that tho children had less attention paid them than tho horses, hogs, &c. The next day we hu-iM up tho School house, aud wo found an old log building in tho woods, nearly full of intelligent looking children, with a young girl as teacher. Tho owls and tho bats made tho school houses the jdaoe of rendez vous at night, and the childun of wealthy farmers congregated there in daytime; whilo tho slock on their fath ers' farm hail nicer stables in which to stand. It was a burning shame, a disgrace to any community. Somo far mers say, when asked to send their liyn and girls t a good school, "we cant afford it;" but they can afford to spend hundreds of dollars in a few months or years on' fine stock, such ns hog, cat tle, sheep, horses, mules, le. .No won der then, that so many of their children prove in tho end only tobe a poor rtock of wn'.. A man who fvhis children will Cihtratc them, and expend more money .on them than on his animals. A man who loves biutes belter than his own children will ca. c for bruto ; au I his children may gather what little in formation they can from a young "school-marm" snmmonded bya swarm of children, in a house unlit for decent hogs to live In. This may kccrn extravagant, but is true to tho letter, and not half has yet been said. But wo purpose saying mote on this subject soon, and will con. cludo by Faying to all, semi your chil dren to Brookville College, whero tho buildings are good, where tho deciplino is good, w here the teachers are better, ami whero tho care taken of tho stu- dents is the best. 1 AtilT litt. FROM WASHINGTON. Washington: April 30th Senate. Mr. Doolittlo offered a resolution that a wagon road be constructed from Fort Benton to tho navigablo waters of tho Columbia Bivor at Wulla Walla. Bo forred to tho Committee on Military Affairs. The consideration of the report oKho Committco on Conforenco on tho Kan Bill was resumed. Mr. Broderick said that after tho mat ter had been so ably discussed, ho would not mako a lengthened speech. Ilo was opposod to and would voto against tho bill reported by tho com mittee of conference, lor several rca- sons, a no mosi voicnt oi wiucu jb that it jrohibits Kansas from coming into tho Union as a frco State during tho continuance of tho power of tho present administration. That tho Ter- ntory has but yo,uuu population now, and if sho does not swallow iheLccomp ton Constitution fivo or six years must elapse before sho will havo requsito pop ulation to entitlo her to a representa tion. Tho original bill was even less objectionabloto him than this conforenco Substitute. IIocse Mr. English, of Ind., called up tho regular order being tho conside ration of tho report of the Committco of Coufercneo on tho Kansas bill. 31 r. Clark, 2s. Y., said that he bad in tended to give his reasons for voting against the substitute, but a night's sick ness left him phyeicolly unablo to un dertake tho tusk. Ilo would merely now say that ho regarded this now schomo as eminently objectionable in form and still moro dangerous in sub stance llo would seek tho floor on somo future occasion to define his views upon tho subject. Mr. Bryan ot Texas, gave tho reasons why ho had acted with the little squatl of southern members on that subject Aüer alluding to the remark of Senator Seward that ho regarded tho battle be tween slavery and freedom as already fought, he said he would do nothing to jeopardize tho union of the south for tho protection of tho South, which is much needed. Mr. Shorter of Alabama said ho bad, with some live or six southern demo crats, uniformly resisted tho previous question. Jlo wanted time lor discus sion, in order to arrive at a correct con struction ot the substitute bill, llo now found that the general construction was, that it did not refer the Lecompton Con stitulion back to the people of Kansas; if ho thought it did, ho would voto against it, even with the Black Kepub licans I Tho gentleman from ticorgia (Stephens) -aid the Constitution was not to bo submitted; and tho gentlo- iiii.h lioiii Indiana, (hnglish) oy his si h-nce, acquiesced in that view there- lore ho would now co-operate with the friends of the measure and veto for the previous micr-lion. Mr. Campbell of Ohio said that his colleague, Mr. Cox, at the commence nicht of the session took tho bannerol popular sovereignty in hand, und tri umphautly defended it; hut not. in full view id victory, he beats a retreat. Mr. Cox wished to say that bo thought the amendment which the Jlou-o pas soil to bo the best ; but, US this Could not become a law, ho was willing to take the next best, under the circum stances. Mr. Campbell then asked Mr. Cox a " 1 . 1 1 Ml whether ho understood the mm present ed by tho CommiiUo of Conference as submitting tho J.ecompton Constitution to a voto ot the people ot Kansas. Mr. Hughes of Ind. objected to Mr. Cox answering tho question. Mr. Cox replied, however, that al though tho Constitution was not sub milted diroctlv. vet in effect tho people of Kansas will have an opportunity to say w hether they want it. Mr. Campbell wanted an unequivoca answer. Jlo then prouueeu a letter written by Mr. Cox, dated Keb. 0, in which the latter staled that while he hud a vote it should never be dragged into tho Lecompton iv.iro, and, so help him (iod, he never could tlo otherwise. Yes, said Mr. Campbell, my colleague said ho would voto for no proposition which would not submit the constitu tion to a voto of tho people. Mr. Cox said he still endorsed that letter. Mr. Campbell referred to the fact, that about twenty nnti-Lecomptou Demo crats wero pledged, on a high point of personal honor, to stand to tho end bv tho Montgomery Crittenden amend ment in company with tho llepubli cans. Mr. (Jrocsbeclc, of Ohio, replied he had mado no such pledge, und bad no such undci'htanding.or construction. Mr. Camnbell retilied that he did not . r . i i i . . mako the observation with reference to that gentleman, and asked Croesbock whether ho understood tho bill as sub mitting the constitution. Mr. (Jrocsbeck said that, In effect, it docs. Owen Jones, of I'enn., remarked that ho had never given a pledge to Mr. Campbell or any body else that he would stand Ly the Montgomery or any other measure. Mr. Campbell asked whether ho did not meet with what weroknownas anti Lecompton Democrats, and whether or not a committee was not appointed with power to represent aud speak for them to another boiiy. Mr. Jones replied that ho had met, on ono or two occasions, with certain lemociils, but no committee, of that kind wys appointed, or nuthori.cd to pledge his vote on any suhiect. Mr. Campbell then asked him wheth er tho bill submitted the constitution to a voto of the people. Mr. Jones replied that ho was willing to let tho people coiistruo that for them selves. Mr. Bonham moved tho previous ques tion, but tho Hoiiso refused to order tho call of the House. -Mr. llaskin obtained consent to mako a few remarks, and said that Cox, at a certain time, was not only opposed to tho Lecompton constitution, but on Monday last, late in the afternoon, came to his desk anil road a letter which ho had written to tho Ohio Statesman, de nouncing the report of the Committee of Conference us tho most infamous that could bo made, and denouncing tho chairman for having made such a re port. Mr. Cox earnestly, 'That is not true.1 Mr. llaskins 'I can prove it by the gentleman from Illinois, Mr. Harris.' Mr. Cox '1 can lurnisu tho letter. Cries of 'Order. Tho Speaker requested gentlemen 1o tako their seats, and reminded Mr. Has kin that his remarks wero assuming a personal character, lie could givo tho reasons for or against tho bill, but must not deal in personalities. Mr. llaskin said ho was simply givg ing tacts in connection with tho Le compton fraud, and could provo what ho bad stated. 1 wenty-threo Demo crats 6tartcd out against thcScnato bill, and only twolvo wero left, equal innura bcr to tho apostcls.. lho gentleman from Ohio had seen now light, aud he asked now to givo it to the country. Mr. Cox replied that ho had stated yesterday that his first impression was against tho Uonlcrenco Committee s re port, and now repeated that it did not entirely meet his views. In tho letter to tho Ohio Statesman ho gavo his opin ions and objections, and that his first impressions wero against tho report, bo- causc ho thought it discriminated against free and in favor of 6lavo States ; but ho had conferred with Gov. Walker, and on learning from him that Kansas will next r all havo a population sufficient under tho Federal ratio for a member of Congress, ho took tho report as tho best that we could get. Ihe gentleman from Xew York should not insinuate that ho was a Judas ; that gentleman unew lull well that no ono from the Ad ministration or any other source had darod to approach him on tho subject. Laughter on tho Bepublican side. llo had acted with an honest mind und a puro heart for himself, and any man who insinuated to tho contrary was not worthy a placo on that floor; nor would ho (Cox) bo if ho bad betrayed confi dence and proved recreant to all he had heretoforo said or done. Ho appealed to heaven for the rectitude of his inten tions. The Constitution was practical ly, though not in form, submitted to tho people of Kansas, nnd they havo n chanco to kill it. Ho asked llaskin whether i hero nau been lalsehood or recreancy cn his part. Mr. llaskin lI leave that for the country to judge.' Mr. Cox, with earnest and excited gesticulation, mado a reply, which was lost in tho greatest possible confusion. The Speaker loudly rapped, and said ho would prohibit an- language ap proaching to personalities. The demand for the prcvi previous question was scconcd. Tho Speaker repeatedly rapped and called to order, lbiring tho roll call tho House was unusually quiet. The result on adopting tho Kansas report was yeas 11-, nays 1I.5. Applause, ae companied with hisses. Mr. Bnglh-di moved to reconsider tin voto by which the report was agreed to. and to lay that motion on tho table Mr. Washbiirne, of 111., demanded the yens and nays. Motion agreed to IB! against loo. A message was received from the oenato witu tno announcement ol tho concurrence of that body in tho report of the Committee ot Conference on the Kansas hill.
