The House of Representatives passed the Nebraska and Kansas Territorial Bills, on Monday. May 22d, by yeas 113, nays 100 --20 absent or not voting.

Agricultural Meetin- On Monday, the 5.1, of huZ there will . i be a meeting ol the members of the Agri- cultural Society of this county, at the Court House, for the purpose of receiving reports and to prepare resolution., &e for the reg - ular meeting upon the second Monday in the seme month, enjoined by an article in the Ooi;Hi"Uion. .-ii persons who leei an, interest, or have become identified in the bei.cfits of this Association, are exhorted to attend. Those individuals and officers to whom power was given to obtain subscri bers, it is expectxiJ will have full reports tt that time made out. Without this be ac complished, thorough satisfaction cannot be given by the Secretaries to the Board at their regular n.eetinf. There is now a spirit of animation deployed upon this sub ject which if permitted not to t'xert a prac tical influence, will throw the prospects of the Society in a more gloomy position thnn it occupied during '.he past effort for its success. Let every friend of the cause be present. J- U'Hjrr, ee'y. Boone County State Senator. Under the Inst apportionment, Boone Mid I Howard were thrown into a Senatorial Dis- j triet, and will be represented in the net LeEislature. bv lion. Owen Rawlins, of this ! county, he beitip one of the holding over Sen ators. It 1 as been a long lime since Mr. Rawlins was elected, and if public senti ment has not greatly changed, his District has, and we presume no one will pretend to assert that his views and those of a ma jority of his constituents harmonize. Boone county never voted for him at all, and per haps never will; but when Mr. Rawlins was before (lie people, we recollect distinct ly well that he dwelt largely and strongly upon the subject of instructions contended that the will of the majority should govern the representative, and that the represen tative was bound to carry out that will, or resign. Chariton was a part of this Dis trict then, ami voted for Mr. Rawlins. She is thrown into a new District, and will assist to elect a new Senator, in August. By the change, Boone has no voice, in this Senato rial election, except she give it in the way of instructions. There arc Important mat ters to come before the next Legislature, and it is by no means certain that a major ity of the voters of Howard will agree with Mr. Rawlins on many poin We wilt I mention, by way of illustration the election of United Slates Senator. Mr. R. can neither represent the Whigs nor the Benton men truly, if he vote his own preference and if they do not constitute a majority of the voters of the county, good calculators are at fault. But add to the whig! of Howard, the whig voters of Boone and it is apparent he will not reflect their ! views, on the Senatorial election, Internal Improvements, and other questions that will come up. which need not be recapitulated, We. should like to hear from our Boone fricn(s Qn lhJ fU, . . , from R I ! Una himself. What do they think of it. and what docs he think? Will he obey inslruc- tinns? We pause for a reply. St. Louis Rail Road Tax. Our citizens arc already advised that the citizens of St. Louis voted to tax their real estate $1,200,000 lc-bo invested as' stock in : to help build the road. They were willing for others to do it, and give them the bene tit of the appreciation of property, and an increase of trade, but would not pay a cent themselves. The proposition for the tax however was carried, and the old fogys threatened a resistance, and an appeal to the Courts. The friends of the measure readily agreed, and the case was at once laid before the Supreme Court, which gave a decision in favor of the validity of the tux. This de- Chariton CoontV. C. W.

M. Eoitob When in Brunswick a few dnys sitree, T saw Mr. MoWrly, who has btn considerably spoken of as die Whip candidate lor the Senate in this district, and in an interview then heM with him, lie in formed mc that he had fully decided on not becoming I candidate, and that a card to that effect would be published in the next Brunswicker and Times. In view of Mr. M.'s. declining, it be comes us to be looking around and selecting some other good and talented Whig, (and we have a great many such, Mr. Editor,) to bear the Whig banner in this race. It wiFl never do to let Frederick Rowland, a mere hmt straw man, run over the district without opposition. The next Legislature will be one of infinite importance to the people of this State, and Whigs and Demo crats feel the necessity of sending such men to represent us as will be able to render us some essential service and benefit to the country. The democrats have tried to fur nish a candidate, and the effort is a failure, ns every one who knows Mr. Rowland must admit. Though a good man enough, as a citizen, yet no one who has any pre tensions to a lodgment, would say he i fitted for th? office of a legislator. In can vassinr? the roll of names. Mr. Editor. I know of none who could probably be induced to run, and who would be so incept nblc to ' the people as Judge Lucit s Salisbury, of Keytesville.

Preparations for the Invasion of Cuba Ej tract of a Letter lo a mercantile house, dated New Orleans, May 12, 1854. We give such facts and rumors as are cur .. . ............... ... rent with regard to difficulties brewing with , Cuba, the results of which are bound to have a great effect upon the sugar niarkel, . and consequently upon Louisiana. Let us i commence by saying that wt are strongly : opposed to all "iilhbustcnng,' or to any governmental lnuucnce in uuua, as iikelv lo produce anarchy and confusion and blood shed there, and to bring disaster and per haps die-union to (hie Republic, without any chance of doing good to any parly. There is, unuoubteuly a strong 'lUubv party in this country, and there is, doubtless, very extensive preparation making in money, men, &c; and the present move of Slidell in Congress, if it produces no other effect, will cause nse confidence among those engaged in the s scheme, who are not deeply enough in- teresleil In hpcintidnut in nriviitiprilon that may be made to enlist their means and ncrsons. The matter has rnnc so I'or ainoiia. thorn who are rnithnaiaitifl nnd intaatf that the prospect of its realization has cans- ed lately another party to join in it; and it is this new addition, which we have just heard of through a most reliable source, that has caused us to think the matter of sufficient importance to address you upon, that you may watch its course and commercial effect. The planters of Louisiana have naturally been adverse to the annexation M Cuba, us likely to injure the Sugar interest; but most ol them arc now convinced, that any demon slration against the Island, will result in im mediate anarchy and confusion, and deatrue- (ion to the productiveness of the Island, and .1 .1 .... . . consequently remove the competition against the sugar interest ot this country. It can he only with this view and expec- tation, that some parties are now affording meaus privately, and giving their influence openly, to the "fillibusters," for among them we know ol influential and wealthy plan- ten, who have heretofore bitterly opposed their schemes. publicly and privately. Some oflhese persons are well known as public influential men in Washington, and the fact ol their entering into purchase of sugar es- larva, negroes, eve., i.uieriy, sausr.es us Hint nig on u.e nirntoi line now acquisition, on I hey have great confidence in an early and ly that it is an old acquaintance with me, etlectual demonstration upon llie Island of Cuba, which will produce the result men turned above The active preparations for an expedition are kept as quiet as possible.

A general conviction of the near approach of such difficulty in Cuba would imparl firm- ness, and might produce a speculative ad- vance in sugars; but we would not be wil- ling to speculate on it prospectively, or lo ;ict on it upon the first demonstration; be - .,...,., ;i ...;l,i .,,! .i ji .

I I A - J '.I .1 I ... Benton's Second Speech Cuba and Mex ico. Oft the 26th alt., Mr. Knox of Illinois, gave way for Benton, who spoke in reply to Mr. Seward of Georgia: Mr. Benton. I concur in the truth and justice of everything which the member from Georgia has here said, but differ from him in the conclusion to which he arrives that of voting for the bill; and find in his reasons for that vote, additional reasons for my own vote against it, but lie votes ss a southern man, and votes sectionnlly. I also am ft southern man, but vote nationally on nation al questions. He sees in it a principle set up which is false and useless in its applica tion to Nebraska, but w hich is to be asser ted in future, and which is put into the bill as the basis of some grand impending move ment in this country. Of the n!ure of this movement, which is to be so grand, and at the sametimc sectional, the member declares himself to be ignorant; and that ignorance I would suppose, should be a reason for hol ding back from a hill which commits its sup porters to great unknown things. That is the way it works with me. I am also ignorant, that is to say. uninfor med of this grand movement which is to be in this country, but I believe in it. and so believing nm (he more against the bill; I am airainst airy thing that I do not understand and which nobody will explain to me, and which, according to my own short and du-1 VUn. 11.M. la ...... l t1, A 'I C.l ....

In this search I naturally look about into the tigns and rumors of the times, and into the contemporaneous events w hich may con- ncct themselves with the granu movement i in question; and think I find in them two diplomatic missions, of which the country has heard much but not all. I speak up- ' on rumor, but neither tell, nor believe, the half of the half of what I hear; but believe enough to excite apprehension, and to justi- fv inonirv What is a State secret in the ' city of Washington is street talk in the city of Montezuma. 1st. The mission of Mr. Gadsden tn San. i la An-.ia. It must have been conceived about 1 the time that this bill was; and, according to transpiring accounts, must have been a grand movement in itself $5,000,000 for as much ; Mexican territory as would make five or six ' states of the first class. The area of the 1 acquisition, as I understand it, was to extend : from sen to sea, on a line that would give 1 us Santander, Monterey, Saltillo, Parras, Sonora and all lower California. This was cerlainlv a larce movement both In naint of money and of territory, and also large in no - Htloif eontequemV and clearly furnishing a theatre for the doctrine of non-interven- l.l :r .1 .U...1.1 l. J : . . tion, if there should be any design lo con - vert the newly-acquired territory from free soil, that it is, into slave sou, mat it might be desired lobe. Here, then, I believe I have found one great branch of the grand movement; and although Mr. Gadsden re- turned from Ins mission with a small slice only of the desired territory, yet he has re - turned to his post, and may have better luck on a second trial-if Santa .Anna escape from the speckled IneJianslLos Indios Pmtos)who have him at bay in the Sierra. I say noth- having lirst nearu ol it in JNovember, l4b and arterwards in March, 1848 at which: latter lime it was proposed in the Senate ! (by Mr. Davis, of Mississippi.) on the rat- i float ion of the Guadalupe-'.Iidalgo treaty ami rejected by the Senate. I voted against the San under and Monterey line then, and have not teen C8Ufl to change my opinion. ( Here Mr. Benton rend lite article proposed by Mr Davis fur the new line) 2d. The mission of Mr. Smile to Madrid, also a grand movement in itself, if repuris be true two hundred and filiy millions lor Cuba; and a rumpus kicked up if the island is not got. Here again might be found a a case lor the non-intervention principle;biit of thai I say nothing, because I know noth' ing and wish to know something.

Mr. Chairman, I discuss nothing in rela- ' ,'n to those rumored acquisitions of the Is land of Cuba and a broad side of Mexico; I only call attention to them as probable in dexes to the grand movement of which the member from Georgia gave us the revela tion, and which no one has denied. Accor ding tn him and according to my rwn belief this Nebraska bill M only an entering wedge to future enterprises a thing manufactured for a particular purpose -a stepping stone to a grand movement which is to develop it self in this country of ours. I wish to know what that movement is. I have a right to know, to enable me to discharge my duties understanding!'; and I respectfully crave the information from those wlio have the conducting of the bill. Mr. Smith of Va. I would like to know Mr. Chairman, how much of this time con sumed in the remarks of the gentleman from Missouri is to be taken out of the hour allot ted to the gentleman from Illinois. The Chairman--The gentleman from Mis souri occupied about, twenty minutes. As a matter of course, that lime must be taken out of the hour nil-sited to the gentleman from Illinois. It is distinctly understood (lint the Chair did not authorize the gentleman from Missouri to take the floor from the gen tleman from Illinois. Mr. Knox I am very happy in having yielded to the gentleman from Missouri so much of my time, because what he has said is of far great interest, and of far more im pbrtonce to the country, than any poor re marks of mine would have been. (This declaration was greeted with warm applause.) JEfExCITEMTNT IN THE TERRITORIES.
