Houston speak on the Nebraska Bill.
The Chair laid before the Senate a commu
nication trow General Armstrong, of the Union,
asking to be released from the engagement be
tween that paper and the Senate, for the pub

adequate. The communication was referred

The Senate then resumed the consideration

ment for Nebraska.
Mr. Houston then addressed the Senate in
defenoe and vindication of the Indians. He
traoed the history of the Cherokees from the
time of the treaty of 1785 down to their loca
tion in the present Territory of Nebraska,
which was guarantied them by the most sa
cred pledges of the Government^ that in the
enjoyment of this home they should never be
He aocused the Government of bad faith,
and asked when had the Government ever done
an honest act, or fulfilled any promise with re
spect to the Indians ? He advooated the policy
of furnishing Indians with food and the means
of prosecuting agriculture, in which they would
soon beoome civilized and christianized com
munities. The present policy of keeping up
armed posts, &o., cost more than would in a
few years christianise and civilize every Indian
oast of the Rooky Mountains. He elaborated
theee points at great length.
Mr. Houston had not oonoluded, when he
yielded the floor, and the subject was post
The Senate proceeded to the consideration
of Executive business.

Mr. Maee, to make investigations respecting

The Speaker laid before the House several

ing, reported baok, and asked to be discharged

nish publio schools with oopies of the Presi

The committee also asked to be discharged

ana 30,000, for the use of the House. Tbe lat
ter number was, on motion of Mr. Straub, in
creased to 50,000; and the resolution was
On motion of Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, the
House then resolved itself into Committee oi ,
the Whole on tbe Homestead Bill, Mr. Olds in
the ohair.
This bill is entitled: " A bill to enoourage
Siculture. commerce, manufactures, and all i
er branches of industry, bv granting to of
ery man, who in the head of a family, and n
oitieeu of the United State#, a homestead of
160 acres of land, out of the publio domain,
upon oondition of oooupancy and cultivation of ,
the same, for tbe period herein specified.''
Mr. Dawson addrossed the Committee at
length, in support of this bill.
Mr. Mace arose, and said that be proposed,
for the first time in his life, to deliver a speech
from the manuscript He said that he would
speak upon the bill whioh had been reported
to this House from the Committee on Territo- ,
ries, and which was identioal with that now
before the Senate in relation to Nebraska.
In order that he might not be catoohised in !
the oourse of his remarks, he said he would ex
plain his past oon rse upon all kindred ques
tions. He proceeded to do so, and ahowed that
he had never ocoupied a position antagonistic !
to the interests of the slave States.
Tbe Compromise of 1850 did not, in bis opin- I
ion, repeal the Compromise of 1820?a oom- j
pact that had been made in good faith, and
approved, sanotiontd, and re-affirmed, in all
the subsequent legislation of the country bear
ing diroowy or indirectly upon the subject.
The present is the first time, the speaker
said, thafe Slavery has formed the basis of par
ty divisions. In all former times the boast ap- ;
peered to be that one party contained more
Pro-Slavery men than the other.
It bad been said in the Senate that Mr. Clay
himself doubted the constitutionality of the !
Missouri Compromize. If this were so, all hia
tory in relation to it most be false; and if Mr.
Clay were now alive, not only would this state
meat not be made, but a proposition to repeal
that Compromise would hardly be made in any
body of whioh he was a member.
Mr. Mace related incidents of the history of
the Compromise of 1850, and deecantod upon
the nature of the conoeeKions then made. He
said they were made by tbe North in good faith,
and that their boasted finality was honestly
believed in. He was still speaking, when our
report closed. _

improvement in a oamphene lamp. He finds
a Bible engraved on oopper, hidden under the
ground : acoording to this revelation, he is the
inspired founder or a church. He is a prophet,
in direct correspondence with the Deity. He
dethrones, in the belief of o^rtnin foolish and
unprincipled people, the Saviour of Mankind,
and proclaims, in place of a pure and perfect
system of faith and practice, the worship and
unqualified obedienoo to a human being, and
the practice of a sensual usage which is revolt
ing to the principles, polioy, and prejudices, of
the Christian world. Suoh a Government is
no more a Republic than any other in whioh

mon would be preached that afternoon, by the
Rev. Mr. Furness, (Unitarian,) of Philadelphia,
at the churoh of Rev. Mr. Chapin, (Universal
it*,) upon the subject of " Practical Religion."
He said he supposed some people would think
it strange that he, an Orthodox olergyman,
should give such a notioe; but though Mr.
Furnees entertained a different system of the
ology from him, yet he was right on the great
question of human rights and human progress,
and an eminently practical Christian. He
added, that some men live bettor with a bad
system of theology, than many men did who
had a good one; and that lisome men could do
more with a jack knife, than other men could do
with a whole chest of tools "

Cookery as it should be ? Ah, well, that's a pretty
bold title! And a dubious one, too, exolaims another,
for if the authoress is going to tell us what it should
be, that will be nothing now, for we all know by daily
experience what it should and could be, but what it
is not. Well, she tells you what it should be, and
how to make it so; and in short, plain, practical, and
simple rules, suoh as the result of a long and constant
ly active experience in providing for the daily wants
of a large household, enables her to do in the very

To those persons who may visit Washington, and
are in want of a boot that cannot bo excelled, either
in uuality or workmanship, we would call their atten
tion to the card of Henry Jannoy, to be found under
tbe head of " Washington." A handsome and neat
ly-mado boot is not at all times a source of pleasure
to the wearer, but otton one of extreme torture; this
is caused by the bungling manner in which tho hoot
is fitted to tho foot. Mr. Jannoy has devoted much
of his time in studying the construction of the human
loot, in order to ascertain how a boot should be cut
and fittod, that will be perfectly easy to all parts of
tho foot. In this ho has succeeded, so that it matters
not what may bo the shape of. or the number of corns
on tho foot, his boot is jierfectly easy. Thps he has
combined beauty with comfort.
