It rejects the land-grab ordinance, and punishes illegal voting or fraudulent re turns with severe penalties. It declares that if Lecompton is rejected, and a new Constitution ratified by the people, Kan sas shall he absolutely in the Union * thus preventing any factious resistance to her admission next Winter, or any demands for compromises as conditions of admis sion. The Americans of Washington areas rejoiced at the result as the Republicans and the Douglas Democrats in Congress. The Buchanan men mourn and threateu alternately.

From a Special Correspondent. WASHINGTON, April 1, 1858. When the action of the House was made known to the Senate, it receded from the determination to adjourn till Monday, which had been previously made, and Mr. Green moved to non-concur in the amendment. This motion will be adopted to-mor row, and then the question for the House will bo whether it shall kill the whole affair. The usual proooedlng is to insist and ask for a Committee of Conference; but uo such inclination is entertained. No conference is required, because the two Houses radically disagree in principle. Therefore the bill as disagreed to ought to be laid on the table, whence it would require two-thirds to take it up, or a mo tion to adhere should be carried, which would give Lecompton its effectual qui etus. The Senate has kept back Minnesota with (Resigns of usiug it in the present contingency, and it is uot improbable, if the House should adopt the course sug gested. that Kansas may be put on as a rider; but such scheme will bo defeated in the House. From the Tribune of April 3d. The Senate yesterday ooniidered the House amendment to the Kansas Admis sion bill, and rejected it by a vote of 32 to 23. This is as we expected. Mr. Stunner was hastening to Washington from this City, but had not arrived when the vote was taken. There were, of course, other absentees on both sides, but their presence would not have affected the re jSijlt, Mr, hreeu wished to reject the Amendment off-hand, without debate, but Mr. Bigler, as a Northern Senator, whose constituents would like to know why so fair and just a termination of the Kansas strife iu Congress was rejected by thos c who profess the greatest anxiety to settle the question somehow —anyhow—thought it necessary to sty something; and this called forth remarks from Messrs. Doug las and Hugh. No Republican deemed it advisable to speak, though they would all doubtless have been glad to have awaited Mr. Sumner's expected arrival before tak ing the vote. Thc bili now returns to the House, where a motion to lay it. ou the table ts likclv to be made on its reception, which, we presume, will be defeated. We hope the House will then proceed at once to voj£ too .AOJJERi:, though the probabilities are against this. If we do not mistake, the motion to Insist (which will doubtless also be made) lias preference bv Parlia mentary law. If there are any weak brethren an the anti-Lecompton side, they will doubtless betray the infirmity by vot ing to insist., and ask a conference, Should this motion prevail, we .-hall have serious apprehensions as to the final result; other wise, we have sanguine hopes that the reign of Border Ruffianism in Kansas is at its last gasp. We shall soon sec wheth er the noble phalanx of One Hundred and Twenty numbers in its ranks any who can be induced to open a passage for the foe. We await the issue, not without appre hension, but with earnest hope. COMMU N ICATIONS. )f'gr the Potter Journal. A PLEA FOR POTTER COUNTY. No. IV. We will now take a view at some of the Other branches of industry; and without 'attempting to follow in a local order, we will at once begin with MECHANICS. Ere we enter on this subject we might make i a remark, which it would perhaps have been better to have made it before, namely, ; that nearly everything which is produced ; in a new country, costs more than the same i things, produced in old settled places. I There are several causes for this. First, ! the lack of faculties. Second, the iucreas- ( ed obstacles which beset all persons who! live in new settled countries. Third, the) | limited sales of things manufactured, In i nearly all cases the sales are /ore/,-conlined , tt the immediate neighborhood. The diffi-1 culties, and expenses of exportation make this so. Besides, as all men ought to live by their profession or handicraft, they must, jive out of the profits of that portion of their j ; industry which they sell. To explain my meaning, suppose a Mechanic who works at a trade, yet his time is not constantly | employed by orders for the articles which j he makes, but still he as to spend all his time in his shop, to wait upon customers when they come. Nor does it happen, al ways, that he can use the unemployed por-; tion of his time to a useful account. The same might happen with a Store-keeper, Physician or Lawyer. But all of these! must live, uud how can they unless the j means come out of their business ! The | answer is not found by saying let them! change their business unless it yields them a living; for somebody must just do what they arc doing. Nov could any of them tell when they could leave their shop or place of business or office in order to do other things. A man must be at his place of business in working hours at all times, or the public will not patronize him ; and very justly too. These things we trust will show why things cannot he made j and sold as cheap as they could be, were, it so that any amount could be disposed oj: just as soon as they wore read// for sate. We will now take a look at some things which strongly tend to keep this state of things up in our community longer thau is necessary, llcre is a Shoemaker work-, iug at his trade, hut look at the opposi-. tion which constantly presses upon him i bv Merchants bringing in ready-made j boots & shoes, (which are made to sell , and j not very often to uear.) Now altlio' the; Merchant who does this may be charged! with a want of encouragement to home' manufactory, still the peoplewhobuy them arc not altogether innocent. We know that men very often plead that they have! a right to buy where they please and sell I what they please. It will be enough for; our point to confess that no law of the : land forbids them doing this, so far us the things under discussion aro concerned; but still there might be some things which the law allows men to do, which might be prudent not to do. A shoemaker has to! contend constantly against a flood of cheap articles in his line, which are always oifer-! cd lower than he can a good article! for. It may be said here; well no shoe-1 maker can supply the demands, because j they are very often without stock. Well, how come they without stock ? Let me tell. lu most cases, those who call upon him for hoots or shoes, want them and wish to pay for them in things which vrill not replace stock. This is not the case with those brought fruqi abroad. The [cash must go to do (hi*. No Merchant sends Buckwheat potatoes; nor cord wood fur this, Theu if the cash goes to j pay for those boots & shoes which aro' 1 brought in, why UUt pay the cash to the Shoemaker here: If he gets it, his stock ; can be kept up and the demauds can be; met. Other trades suffer in the same! mauner. The Blacksmith finds hor>e nails of a yyry inferior quality and also ; tuyned shoes; now we assert that neither !of these tvill add anything to his profes sion, nor will they be as cheap to the pur i cluucr, in the long run, as articles well made from good material. So the 1 Yag |ganwufcer. They seem to be mure like | rcpnifers of old waggous, sleds, &e., thau makers of such. I low much hotter wovbd it have been, had those cutters , which we have seen about Coudersport the past wiu ter, come from the shops iu that place; and how incomparably better would it have been to have had the money, circu lating arouud the county, which must go oat of it, to pay for them. The an who uses the cutter may be benefitted by it, but many might have been, had the pay for it been kept in the county. We are by no means dictating to men how they shall spend their money, but we ask them to look at the results which follow from a certain way of spending it. Why should men who come and settlo in the county and open shops and start business, not be encouraged; and to whom should they look for encouragement, if not to the iu- | habitants among whom they dwell ? Think you that if one is forced to shut up his ' simp for want of being encouraged, that i lie is the only sufferer? By no means. The Carpenter too, lie must suffer by the | sash, blinds, &c., which merchants keep for sale, brought into the county. And strange to say these get sold altho' carpen ters live here and often have but little to do. We feel inclined to ask the Mer chant a question here. Suppose you are indebted to me, would you not desire that [ should purchase goods from you, so that you could get out of 1113' debt, especially, since I may be buying those articles else where and perhaps abroad ? Most cer tainly you would. AVcll now just reverse it, and suppose I am in your debt is it not likely I would think the same? By such a process you may make a little, but, we are fully convinced, not as much as you ' would make by encouraging home man i ufactory. Thesame might be said of those | plows, sleigh-shoes, &,, which you keep. ; Cannot such be made here ? And would it not be better for all if they were ? Let us see, A farmer buys a plow from the j store, without looking ahead, but in a j short time his points are worn out, and it 1 often costs hi.u more to get another than ! a plow comes to, Or his mould-hoard] breaks and the whole thing is useless. l Now this is not supposition, for we could j j refer tu a goodly number who have exper iencoi] this, Did they purchase those! macje here, they could at any moment re-. ! place any part which might be wanting, jAt first it is saving pennies to be paid ■ back with dollars. We know that it is hard to make men feel and believe that it is not the best polic}' to buy plows which jure brought from abroad, but just as soon !as they are in difficulty with them, then! they admit all. And Store-keepers say J we must sell what we can make something! • by. Well if this is the rule, namely, make \ something, who would not, if they fob' lowed this rule, send elsewhere for their j goods? We state here what we do know, that there is not an article which we buy from ! the Merchants but what we could seud for it and get it at a less price than what, we pa}' them for it. But this is against j our principle and we don't do it. We buy from them because they ought to be en-, couraged, it is necessary there should be stores. Were our object to bu}* where we j can bit}' cheapest, we would never buy a single article from Merchants here. What we do buy, we do it with the full couvie-j tiou that we are paying more for it than j it would cost, were we to send off for it. i We are expressing ourselves here not by! guessing at it, but by knowing it to be I true. Should you ask why then do you \ buy at all, especially when you are doing! it at so dear a rate? We answer, our principle is to encourage our neighbors in ; that which, in reference to the whole, is a good. Stores are necessary, and they! should be encouraged. So it is with shops: and Mechanics. Besides we advocate that : the cheapness at which au article can be bought does uot determine the fact that 1 j should buy it. But my present article is | already long enough.

Titus \\\ Burt of Pennsylvania, fell in with two sharpers yesterday afternoon, in front St. Paul's Church, who success fully operated on Kurt by means of the confidence frame, doing liioa out of 8100 in gold, and giving in exchange a worth less 8100 bill un the City Tnist and Bank ing Company. Burt, on finding that he had been swindled out of his money, soon jound his way to the Mayor's Office, when two otfieers went in search of the rogues.—-A r . V. Tribune, April 2<l. Mr. BURT, is, we believe, a resident of Ulysses township, in this county. We were not before aware that there was a man in Potter county who could be "tak en in" by those New York sharpers. Tlie Motive of the Struggle. We give on our first page an article I from the New York Ere. Post, which ac counts for the apparently insane course lof the National Administration in at tempting to coerce a State into the Union i against the wishes of the people of the [proposed State, and why fraud and out | rage have marked every step in the work iof coercion. The motive of the struggle j was to keep the control of the Govern ment in the hanih of the Slave Power where it has boou for the past sixty years. j The men engaged in this work, pay no' regard to the claims of justice, or the rights of men at home; why should they in their dealings with National questions ? Is it any worse to deprive a citizen of Kansas of his vote, than a southern Slave of himself, his wife and children ? We think the crime committed against the' Slave is a hundred fold worse than those committed in Kansas, and therefore that no person has a right to bo surprised at' the Kansas frauds, murders and house burnings, for these are the legitimate [ fruits of the attempt to extend and per-1 pctuate American Slavery ; hut read the ! article from the Post for a close exposi-| tion of this Kansas struggle. SLX iTOil CUILROX. A letter was recently addressed to [Senator CAMERON by the senior editor of the Harrisburg Telegraph, advising him that there was a disposition on the part of his friends, in the Legislature and out of it, to censure hint for not voting on the Lecompton bill, but pairing off with Sen ator DAVIS, of Mississippi. In reply to that note Mr. CAMERON has written the following letter in explanation, which we liud in that paper of March iilst: Washington - CITY, March 28, 1848. My Dear Sir;-* Your kiud letter of the 25th has been received. My "friends in and out of the Legisla ture, ' you say, "censure lue for pairing off with a sick mau who, they say could i not be there." 1 certainly would have been censurable if it were true that Col. DAVIS could not have been present to vote; but such is not the fact, lie had determined to come to the Senate, against the advice of his physician, and notwithstanding the fears of his family. To prevent him from do ing so, a mutual friend came to me with an appeal. It was a bad day; I had been on intimate terms with him since 1 euter eu the Senate in 184-3, and L could not hesitate to do an act of grace to a friend, knowing that the result could in no man ner be affected by the loss of a vote on each side, while my refusal might endan ger his life ; and believing too. that 1 had character enough, won in the contest thus far, to do a good act without incur ring the censure of good men. While I have omitted no exertion to defeat this '•Leeompton swindle," ami while I shall faithfully and zealously act with my party for the common good of my country, I will not permit myself to be one inch behind my opponents in the courtesies and civilites which deprive politics of their harshness, and invite men of kindly feelings into the service of the State, where such courtesies will produce no injury to the public). I prefer, great ly the grace of tho infidel Saladin, in car rying, at the risk of his own life, to the tent of his foeuian, tho pruud Coeur De Keen—the talisman which restored his health, to the Scottish reformers who killed the persecuting Arch Bishop on his road to church, rather than let him live and repent. 1 hope, therefore, that our friends will uot feel that X have neglected my duty or committed any fault by according a fa vor which, under similar circumstances, I should feel that 1 had a right to ask for myself. Very truly your Friend, SIMON CAMERON, MR. GEO. BKRONER, Harrisburg FA. As we last week took occasion to cen sure Senator Cameron in roferonoo to the; matter of "pairing off' at a time when, as the only representative the anti-Le comptonites of Pennsylvania had in the U. S. Senate, the demand for his vote against the iniquity was most, imperative, ; we but do him justice in giving his ex planation a place in our columns. But wo are, at the same time, compelled to acknowledge that the explanation of the lion. Seuator is entirely unsatisfactory to us, inasmuch as he is not the repre sentative at Washington of personal i friendships and courtesies, but of the voice of the people of Pennsylvania in all matters concerning the policy of our na tional government, having a bearing upon the welfare of the commonwealth or con federacy. It is certainly very impolitic to allow personal friendships to stand be tween the voice of a large majority -jf the people a of this State and the recording of that voice against the perpetration of a great wrong; and thai, too, wheu the minority voice of the State was doubly represented. We are opposed to* the whole system ef "pairing off," for the reason' that, whether it be exerted in either House- of Congress, it deprives-a constituency of am inhereut right—tins right of a voice on questions immediately affecting them.— I No man has a right to u*k so great a eour i tosy us the suppression of the voice of a constituency.—much less has a rep resentative the right to grant it. Om the whole, we are inclined to believe that however sick Senator Davis uiay lave been, the real object of procuring the courtesy from Gen. Cameron was to neu tralize the Senatorial voice of Pennsyl vania against the iniquity which its first representative in the Presidential Chair of the nation was endeavoring to emu r? p? necr through Congress, and to thus alle viate t he remorse which he was inevitably destined to experience from the actio* of the lower House. The courtesy was, os tensibly, to save the risk of Col. Jeff. Da vis' valuable (to southern uullifiers) life, but actually to accommodate the feelings of President Buchanan. Senator Camer on, no doubt, feels perfectly justified in throwing away the voice of this State in the way he did, but he will find it a very difficult task to justify the act before an intelligent constituency. The vote on the Army Bill was bad enough, but this last act has nearly exhausted our charity for him. I*. S.—Why didn't some of the Le j coiuptonites "pair off" with Mr. Harris, whose life was endangered by his deter ! initiation to vote ? We say, because that : would have been too great a courtesy to ! the friends of fair legislation. W hat has Heroine of Popular Sovereignty ! The Scnateof the United States, at the request of the President has voted to force Kansas into the Union with a Constitu tion which nine-tenths of the people of that Territory loath and detest. And this has been done by the sauie party which repealed the Missouri Compromise for the sole reason, (as the leaders said) that it prevented the people of forming their own institutions in their own way. And, in the Senate of Pennsylvania, this same party has voted that Congress has power to coerce a state into the Union without the consent of the people. This position is so at war with the whole gcu ius of our Government, so contrary to the pl&ljes made by the triends of Buchanan during the campaign, that we put it on ■ record unci ask every voter to read audi ponder. In the Senate, March 24th, the resolu-i --tions relative to the admission of Kansas, into the Union as a State, came up in or- - dcr on their final passage, as follows : Resolved f>y the Senate, <£c., That this State lias viewed with deep regret the troubles heretofore existing in the Terri tory of Kansas, productive as they havo been of differences among the organized States— that their continuance is to be earnestly deprecated and their termination sought for by all justifiable means; and that this General Assembly, confiding in the ability and patriotism of the present Chief Magistrate of the I nited States, and impressed with the wisdom and jus tice of his recommendation to Congress in favor of the immediate admission of Kan sas into the Union as a State, do heartily approve that measure, and endorse it with whatever of authority and influence per tains to them. Resolved , That any defective or objec tionable provisions, it such exist, in the Constitution of Kansas, (now pending be fore Congress,) are for the consideration of the people thereof, and that their pow er to amend, alter or liiodity the same, it they shall think proper, in a regular and lawful manner, immediately upuu admis sion as a State into the Uuiuu, is umjaesx tiouable, and stands upon solid eoiisjitu-. tiuuul principles and the practice of Arner-. icau States. 31 r.
