ANOTHER VICTORY I
Jfoecomptoii Beaten Again! On Fridty last, Mr. Bullish presented tlie report of the Conference Committee is the House —(Messrs. Seward aud llow ari dissenting) —and read a heavy Union saving speech in support of the report; and wound up with a motion that it be printed and assigned for 1 o'clock Satur day. Motions were made to postpone for one, two or three weeks, to give time to con sider the proposition, and to take the aocae of the country upon it. Sir. Howard spoke in favor of postpon ing for two weeks. A motion made by Mr. ITi!!, of Georgia, to postpone till tire second 3lon •day in May, was adopted by a vote of Yeas 108, Nays 105. The Leeomptouites were completely tak •eu aback by this, to them, unexpected vote. They supposed their triumph was certain, and Cabinet officers were on the floor, aud their families in the galleries, to witness the triumph they were counting on. The entire wrath of Southern Sre • eaters and Northern cringers is directed against Quitman, of Miss., Bouham, of is. C., Shorter and Stail worth, of Aia., and Hill and Trippe, of Ga., who, Southern men as they are, could not he driven or pressed into sanctioning a scheme even worse than the Lecompton Constitution itself —a position which there are eleven Representatives from this State too base to assume—too servile to even approach The 1 atest action on the matter vtu find in the following dispatch to the W. }'. Tribune ot Saturday, and which confirms the action of the House of Friday by lay ing the motion to reconsider on the table. "We say, in concert with the dispatch— JIURRAIi I WisaiSQTOx, Saturday, Aprii 24. 1353, The vote on the motion to reconsider the vote postponing the consideration of English's beeompton swindle to the sec ond Monday in May, and to lay that mo tion on the table, haiju-t b *eu taken, and resulted aa follows : Yeas, lus ; Nays, 101, Hurrah ! Yo Education Anion? Slaves. AY e alluded recently to one of the dark *a; features of annihilation of the marriage relation. No slave woman in all the South has ever been, or can be married. She lives with a man just so long JLS it suits her mx-ter's picasure, and no longer. Many Ministers of the Gos pel at the North, who are horrified at the idea of church members dancing, have not a word to ajtv against this open and suameh-ss adultery which the Southern i church sanctions aud defends. What kind , .ut a revival would such a minuter be like ly to awaken ? But we sat down to call the attention ■of our readers to another dark feature of American Slavery. So far as it Las the power, it destroys the intellect of the slave. In most of the slave states it is a crime 1 to teach a slave to read the Bible. Why ? Because the body can only be enslaved, . -by surrounding the spirit with mental < darkness. " Permit a man to understand the duties which he owes to himself, to mankiud, and to God, and he cannot be a alave.'' lience, said the lion. J. R. Giddings. I in his grand speech in the House of Rep- resentatives, Feb. 26: '• The whole policy of shareholding Govern ment? is arranged and adapted to the purpose 1 cf fir-it en-laving the minus of their bondmen. < |a BM it alavchoi'liag communities, it isaztat- ] utorv offence, punishable by fine and impris- , onment, to teach slaves to rrid the go-pel. They are not permitted to read tlie words of ' '• Ilim who spake n? never man sp ike who declared His mission on earth •• to procla,r< liberty to the captive to raise up the bowed down; enlighten the ignorant; who taught His disciples and followers " to do unto oth er? as they would have ethers do unto them.' A 4i#tiog-uiahed jurist of North Carolina, while discharging his official duties, declared, " a •lave (3 one doomed in his own person and 1 posterity to hr< without knowledge.'"' He is not permitted to understand the object of human existence. He can have no conception of Jus lire, cr wisdom, or purity, or truth. Slaves can ' have no,correct idea of the duties which chil dren owe to their parents, nor of those which ' are due from parents to children. The parent gs not permitted to teach or govern his child, ' nor is the permitted to honor orobevhis parent. " 1 " Tie right of legal marriage i? unknown awioag tii# liaves.

It was discovered in a bed room attached to the store of Brown Broth-! ers. The Store, with its contents, the | entire block, and the adjacent dwelling of Seymour Johnson. Esq., were destroyed. The goods of Brown Brothers were par tially insured. IVoi. Pooler owned a part of the block—los- 82,800; insured for 81, 600. Miss Lydia Chapman, part owner of the block, lost 51.50 U. but was fully in sured. The other losses were—Seymour Johnson, $500; W. B. Earned 8200; Mark AY. I-'ulson, library, locs not compu ted. hope our farmers will pay more than ordinary attention to their crops this season, in order that there may be a proper exhibition of the Agricultu ral resources ot' this county at the Fair projected for this fall. It is not expect ed that everything exhibited will be of a first-class character, nor that there will be a very extensive exhibition at this first Fair; but there should be a concen trated effort on the part of our farmers to make the exhibition as extensive and creditable as possible. A little effort on 'the part of each Vice President, will pro cure a creditable Fair—-and a little effort on the part of each farmer and mechanic will add much to the prosperity of the county, -ml thereby to his individual in terests. Farming will soon take the place of lumbering as the leading inter est of this county, and it is time, even now, to begin to pave the way to so hope ful a change.
