Senate, Friday, Feb. 10, 1854. * ^roni 'b? Committee on Private Land Claima reported back House bill extend ing the time for presenting certain private land olaims in California, and the same was consid ered and passed. ? a b.U1 confirming a private land olaim in Wisconsin; and the same was passed. -fcb,Af0Woke1,tef ?f th? hei'" ?f "f011 <?f Mr.' Douglas, the considera tion of the private oalendar was postponed, Senate proceeded to the consideration of the bill to organise a Territorial Government for Nebraska. Mr. Smith resumed the remarks commenced by him on yesterday. He quoted, as the plat torna on which he stood upon this question, the words of Mr. Webster, in which that gentle man declared himself opposed to all agitation, Worth or South. He was opposed to all Anti Slavery agitators, and Pro-Slavery agitator? No man could say that in opposing this bill he was actuated by seotional motives. He had wted against this bill at the last sesaion, when it oontained a sanction of the Missouri Com promise. He and some few other Northern Senators voted with the South, and killed the Nebraska bill of the last session. He was surprised to soe some of those Northern Senators now sivinir then- support to this bill. He oould w* no oause for the change, except that this bill oon tained a Slavery clause. If it were not sweet ened by the Slavery clause, the bill oould not live in the Senate half an hour. This bill re enaoted the Fugitive Slave Aot; but if it re enacted the Missouri restriction and the Wil mot Proviso both, he would not vote for the Dill. When the bill was first reported, it oontained a twenty first section, of which no one knew the meaning, and whioh a jury of nineteen Phila delphia lawyers could not decide. It remained in that state one week; when Mr. Dixon offer edI an amendment repealing the Missouri pro hibition. The Senator from Illinois, in five days after that, marches fully up to the Bcratoh. Senator then reported a new bill, declar ing the Missouri Compromiso void and inope **tlTe;, Th" we* not suffered to remain : but alter that a council of war was held, in which was prepared the amendment now pending. . nat amendment is a novelty in the way of legislation. It is an enaotment with an exor dium and a peroration. All the South deeired was the repeal of the Missouri Act. If it was to be repealed, he would prefer to have it done in positive terms, and in none of the squirming and twisting displayed by this bill. If it was to be repealed it ought to be done in a separate motion, and not put here to carry through another measure whioh, without it, oould not reoeive the South ern vote, and whioh was voted down at the last session. The country had expected nothing of this measure. It will be remembered-, the newspa pers had said nothing of Nebraska, until after Congress met Sinoe that time, however, the notes of the present or^an had been most dis cordant. In the first place, the Senator from Kentuoky was denounoed as an agitator be cause be proposed the repeal of the Mimouri Compromise, and the Senator from Illinois was lauded for his middle course. In a few days organ oh&qged it* tune, and the very mean ur?, for professing which Mr. Dixon was de nounoed, was hailed as the very one required and called for. He examined the oharaoter of the Missouri torn promise, and contending that it was adopt an<?D'lb M ?d*?'emn oomPa?'> b? forever kept The Senator from Kentucky placed his sup port of this proposition on the ground that it was offered by the North. He donied the au thority of any one man to offer that proposi tion in the name of the North. If it should turn out that a majority of the Northern Senators should vote against the biil ?^P?ot *b? Senator to vote against the He .thou8ht lt Hkely that a majority of r.L'TT"66 0,1 Territories wore not in favor of this bill. Mr. 8. was still speaking when this report wm closed. House of Representatives, Feb. 10, 1854. The Deficiency bill having been yesterday defeated, and a motion to reconsider the vote defeating it having been made and laid upon the table, an soon aw the Journal had been read to day a general desire was manifested to bring the bill again before the House; bat the Speak* or decided that the vote of yesterday was flna', and that the bill oould uot now be taken up. Much excitement prevailed throughout the Hallon the subject, and for about half an hour there was an almost tumultuous demonstration of inquiries respecting the order of business, I motions, remarks that were ruled out of order, objeotions, &o. The Speaker was clear, oool, and inflexible in his decisions. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, moved to reconsider the yote by wbioh the -motion to reoonsider j was yettforday laid upon the table. The Speakor ruled the motion out of order. Mr. Jones appealed from this decision. Mr. Hamilton moved to lay the appeal upon the table. This motion was decided, by yeas and nayp, : in the affirmative?134 to 35 The House then proceeded to consider seve ral'private bills from the Speaker's table, re- ! portod from the Committee of the Whole, on Friday last; and after some time passed therein. On motion, the House resolved itself into j Committee of the Whole on the Private Cal endar A bill to indemnify the State of Indiana for the failure of title to a township of land, grant ed to said State on her admission into the Union, in 1816, was taken up. Mr. MilUon arose and addressed the Com mittee at length, in opposition to the bill. A Piiopkr Distinction.?Our Indian inci dents are fruitful.

DEFERRED FOBBIGN ITEMS A private letter from Florence, of the 6 th of January, Bays: " Our Government it) rendering itself perfectly ridiculous by its persecution of all those who speak in favor of Turkey. Two boys were arrested some days since, for having given an Oriental salute, by crossing their arms on their breasts and bending their heads. The word 'Turkish' has been erasod from the sign board of the Turkish Coffee-house, and the word 'coffee-house' remains. Crowds asBcm* ble frequently before the house, and laugh im moderately. Several children amuse them selves with wearing a crescent on their breasts, to annoy the polioe.7' A letter from Milan, of the 9th of January, states that " the polioe authorities in that city are beooming every day more arbitrary. The inhabitants are forbidden to quit their houses or walk the stroets, without a pass from the Prefeotof Polioe; otherwise, they are imprison ed and fed on bread and water. There is a special carriage attached to every railway train, which is exclusively reserved for the po lioe, that they may examine everybody who travols. The same vigil anoo is exercised at the theatres." Advices have reached Paris, from St Peters burgh, of the 12th of January, whioh describe the position of affairs as affording little hope for the maintenance of peace. The ?mperor is described by thorn who have an opportunity of observing his movoments, as living in a state of religiouH exaltation, regarding himself as the chosen instrument, under the hand of God, to drive the Moslem fr<jm Europe, and only re gretting that he should have allowed so many years to pass by without fulfilling his destiny. The allegod unconstitutional interference on the part of 1'rinoe Albert has been further dis cussed in London. His Tight by marriage to bo at the Privy Council is established by a unanimous opinion delivered by the judges in 1765, and it is shown that the acta lor natu ralising Prince Albert wero oopied word for word from those for naturalising Prince Leo Kld when he married the late Prinoess Char ;te, in virtue of which ho was made a Privy Councillor on the 1st of July, 1816, with the sanction of I*ord Eldon, then L6rd Chanoellor. The preoedente of Prince Leopold, (though the Princess Charlotte was only presumptive heir ess ) and of Prince George of Denmark, were followed in the case of Prinoe Albert, both of whom were introduced, and took no oaths. Of the strictness of the passport system, and the danger from now-oomers which haunts the Neapolitan (ffioial mind, a good story has just been told. A lady, expecting hoTconflnem -nf, was at Capri with her husband. Wishing that the ohild might be born on the main land, they sailed across the bay; but the youthful Nea- i politan having unexpectedly made his appear - anoe during the three hours' voyage, they were j not allowed to laud, because the infant was not in the passport! Some month* tince, upwards of twenty thou sand natives of the Punjaub assembled at Um ritsir, to hear the Governor General's order on the subject of infantioide. Hitherto the hill ohiefr, and many of the Sikh tribe?, have adopt ed the ornel practice of murdering their female children, rather than boar tho great expeose of their marriage oercmonies. Government has now limited thoso expenses to certain sums proportioned to the rank of the parents In the evening the whole oity was splendidly il luminated, and fireworks broke out on every side. It appears to have been a remarkable display of Oriental magnificenoe. Some one has discovered that leeches, when drank, will bite until sober; and, therefore, when they show a disinclination to bite, he makes them drunk ; he puts them into a little warm beer, and directly they begin to kick about, he takes thorn out, holds them in a oloth, applies them, and find* that they will bite im mediately and vigorously. This is ono of the vert few cases wo (Household Words) have met with, of a personage being more useful when drunk than when sober. Tho surgeons at the Hotel Dieu, at Paris, are said to bo a little more delioate in their practice; they intoxioatc their sluggish leoches with a little warm wine and water, instead of boer. Count Bruno Rronskl, a Pole, has discovered the art of crossing silk-worms, a process < through whioh he obtains silk of a splendid I whiteness. Baron Meyendorff has made him I brilliant offers, for the purpose of soeuring for I Russia the benefit of his invention ; but tho | Polish emigrant has refused, through patriot ; isip, and has offered his aocret to the Indi i Com pany. The entire profits of some popular Londim | publications are likely to be out off by the firing prioe of paper. ANTI-SLAVtKV WOUkS FOR SALE AT THIS OK PICK, BT I.UWIS CLKPHAM. Lifo of Isaac T.
