After our report had dosed yesterday, Mr.
Franklin, of Maryland, gave at length the
reasons which induced him to vote fir the com
mitment of the Nebraska-Kausas bill of the
Senate. Although he was in favor of the prin
ciple of non-intervention by Congress in tho
Territories of the United States on tho suhjeot
of Slavery, yet the provisions of tho bill were
so odious, that be voted to consign it to tho
deep bosom of the Committee of the Whole,
from whenoe it might possibly never arise. Ha
i did this, he said, l>eeause, although the bill
professed to oarry out the doctrine of non-in
tervention, it did, by the Badger provino, inter
vene upon the subjeot of Slavery in the Terri
tories. This point he argued at length, and
also to ehow that under the bill the proposed
Territories must bo forever free.
The Committee then rose, and the bill of tho
Senate,-making a grant of public lands to the
several States of the Union, for the honetit of
indigent insano persons, was read twico; and
pending a motion to oommit it to the Commit
tee of the Whole, tho House adjourned.

The question pending was on the amend
ment requiring all invalid pensioners to renew

civil salaried office shall be paid any pension
as an invalid.
This amendment was debated at length, and
supported by Messrs. Hunter, Stuart, and

house of Representative*, March 29, 1854.
Mr. Henn, from the Committee on Publio
Lands, reported hack Senato bill No. 92, with
a recommendation that it pass. This hill

jeas 62. nays 93,
Mr. Booook's motion was thereupon adopted.
The House then resolved itself into Commit
tee of tho Whole on tho state of the Union
Mr. Hamilton in the ohair.
?And Mr. Barksdale addressed the Commit
tee in support of the Kansas and Nebraska
hill. It was not hie purpose to discuss the ab
stract question of Slavery, whatever may l?o
its benefits and blessings to tbe master and tho
slave, in tbe slave States, and in the North,
where theiY produots are consumed. It wan
sufficient that the Constitution upheld and
supported it. He would not discuss the gene
ral provisions of the bill. They would meet
with no opposition upon principle.
The bill is said to be promature. This ob
jection will no^stand scrutiny. Bnt it is now
before ns, and we have oniy to examine it,
and to act upon it.
There are Amerioau citiaenw in the Territo
ry, and they have elected a delegate and smt
him here. Mr. Barkwlale here read a letter
in proof of tmoh election. Ho also re-ul from
the St. Lout* Republican an extract setting forth
tho fact that emigrant* were pressing on to
that country. All, however, liad admitted that
thiii was a mere question of time. Tho people
will noon create a Government, if Congress
does not give thom one. Mr. Barksdale read
from the speoeh of Mr. Evorott, in the Senate,
to prove that tho question was but one of time.
Ho was still Hpoaking, when our report
