TIic Compromise Bill.
Tfre Nalioiial Intelligencer of Satuaday last,
i says: Quite contrary to our expectation upon the
introduction into the Senate of the bill generally
called the Compromise Bill, (from its leaveihg the
question of free soil in newly acquired Territorets
of California and New Mexico, as well as in Or
egon, to the decision of the inhabitants, and final
ly of the Courts of Law of the United States,) that
bill, aTter harin passed the Senate, on coming up
in the House of Representatives yesterday, recei
ved at once the coup de grace. By a yote of 112'
to 1)8, in a full House, jt was ordered to lie upon
the table, from which if will not be taken up during
the present session of Congress-. .
at an early age to get in. He has become very
wealthy in two ways first, by official salaries,
holding for a long time two well-paid, offices at
once ; yet, not content with this he trumped up a
claim, in 1836, when his friends were in power
and the Treasury flush and open, for extra Services
to an enormous amount services alleged'to have
been performed while he was in the receipt of
these two salaries-which cla'im was lobbied through
Congress and the amount paid over to him.
At this time Gen. Cass was a very rich man,
having made one fortune by office and another by
Land Speculation facilitated by office. ' The Cass
farm,' just below Detroit and now mainly included
within the limits of the City, was sold by him for
more hundreds of thousands than it cost him hun
dreds of dollars. And it now appears that he was
at that time dipping into farther and gigantic Land
Speculations. The Louisville Journal of the 20th
brings us the following :

1836 Lewis Cass, Henry Hubbard, Francis O. J
Smith, Francis Markoe, Jr. and Ramsey McHen

certificates of stock has been sent to us. It it as
follows.

"Be it known that Lewis Cass, Henry Hubbard,
Francis O. J. Smith, Francis Markoe, Jr: and
Ramsay McHenry, on the 58th day of April 1836,
enteied into an association, with the combined
capital of 220,000, for the purchase and sale of
Public Lands, in certain Western States and Ter
ritories of the Union, according to certain articles
of agreement bearing said date, and signed by said
parties ; and that is proprietor ot

BNo intelligent man, who feete an interest in
the welfare of his country, has the right to with
hold his vote at.any important election. One gen
tleman of this class, and only one, we' have heard
declare that he could not vote for Gen. Taylor ;
and that he would not vote' for any opposing can
didate for the reason that he preferred Gen. Tay
lor to either of the nominees- of the' other parties.
There are, doubtless, others- who entertained si
milar views, though we hope the number, after
lull time is given for calm and' deliberate reflection,
will be few. It is the duty of every qualified elec
tor to exercise the right of suffrage. No sufficient
- excuse can be given for withholding a vote, es
pecially when grsatund important interests are in
volved in the issue; and ine person who refuses
on slighfand untenable grounds, or because his
particular favorite did not happen to Be" placed in
nomination, would have no just reason to complain
if he w6re debarred the right of voting ever after
wards. N
The following extract from a letter written by
Laroartine in 1838, explaining his motives for en
tering political life, tells the whole story in few
words. It may be read with advantage by those
who prefer Taylor to Cass, but who, propose to

Washington Cityy -i 1636. t
Secretary: President."
This Association for purposes of land-specUla-tipn
was formed when Lewis Cass was Secretary
of War under Gen. Jackson. Cass himself, the
ciflef of the speculators, paid in $20,00, and oth
ers paid in S 100,000, making a total of $120,000.
The contemplated capital of 220,000' was not ob
tained. The plan of the Association was to enter
lands in the West and hold them up for a vast in
crease of value. Cass being Secretary of War,
and, in virtue of his official station, having import
ant advantages over private individuals, the Asso
ciation gave him the control of the whole business.
He appointed the agent to make the entries of land
selecting his own agent and agreeing to be "re
sponsible for his acts. The- agent went to" the
West and made purchases, all undei1 Cass's direc
tion, and the latter, directly and through his agent,
continued to have the management of the lands.
After several years' delay, the members of the
Association began to have strong suspicions- that
there wa3 little or no probability of their ever get
tins anything for their money. All their applica
tions to Cass for information' were of no avail.
Nothing satisfactory could be learned from him.
After consultation with each other, they appoin
ted Hoh. Henry Hubbard, one of their own num
ber, and then or since U. S. Senator from New
Hampshire, to look after their interests and ascer
tain if Cass and his agent had dealt by Hhem fairly
and honestly. Mr. Hubbard" opened a correspon-i
dece with Cass, but1, failing in every effort to get
any satisfaction from him, he wrote a final letter in
forming the Hon. Secretary of War that he was a
rascal, and the Hon; Secretary was quiet and si
lent under the charge. Mr. Hubhard charged him
with swindling his associates, and the Hon. Sec
retary, instead of exhibiting resentment or attempt
ing to prove his innocence, admitted by his silence
the juitce of the accusation, apd even to this day
the Association has not been able to gel anything
out of him.
We are authorized to make this statement by a
member of the. Association; a- gentleman who paid
S10,000 into the hands of Cass or his agent and
has never received'anvthmg whatever in conside
ration of his money. Our informant requests us.-j
11 me viuainy is aenieo, io can uir xiuu. xivmy
Hubbard for a statement of the truth to demand
of him a publication of the'letters that passed be
tween him aid-Cass, particularly the letter to'the
Hon. Secretary of War, charging him with viU
lainy in all its forms. We shall enclose a' copy of
this paper to Gen. Cass, and, if he ha3 anything
to say, let him speak olit ora'uthorize some of his
organs to speak out for himi Mr. Hubbard; the
public are aware, is a prominent Loco-Foco,'and
was the man that nominated Mr. Polk in the Bal
timore Convention four years'ago.
It was bad enough in all conscience for the head'
of the War Department to become a member of an
association for speculating in lands lo usie the
advantages of his High office, one of the very high
est in the Government, for monopolizing lands,
through the use of an immense Capital, to the great'
disadvantage and detriment of the poor emigant.
Such an operation on the part1 of a Secretary of
War would have been m the extremest degree
censurable, even if there had been nothing dishon
est or unfair ip his treatment of his associates; but
if it is a fact, as charged, that, to the monstrous
impropriety and sharrtelessness of entering into
such a speculation, the Secretary added the crime
of cheating or over-reaching his associates, he de
serves an immortality of infamy,

Mr. Meagher's apprehension caused the ut'
most excitement in Waterford. The chapel
bells were rung ; thousands of confederates as
sembled, and it required all the authority and
influence of the gifted and chivalrous captive,
aided by the Catholic clergyman, to prevent
ihe people from falling upon the military and
police.
As it was, they stoned the authorities and
cut off one body of troops from the other. They
erected a formidable barricade which impeded
the progress of the escort, and for miles hunted

lives were lost. .
