Senate.?Mr. Bmjaman addressed the Ser
ate at considerable length on Kansas affair*.?
He said: "Three times within the short history of
th^ Republic, had its internal peace been ihir
periled, and each time the disturbing dement
had the same effect. When in 1854 it was fi
nally agreed to repeal in terms that, which for
more than a quarter of a century had ceased to
have any active effect, that was used as aground
for vituperation towards the South. She was
accused of violating her plighted faith with very
much the same regard to truth as that which"
we recently observed here in the mandacious
tales in regard to Kansas affairs. The seeking
for compromises other than thbse in the
Constitution was a mistaken policy on the part
of the South?and thank Heaven, the South has
at length become aware of her error?she has
no longer any compromises to offer or accept.?
She will adhere to the Constitution, and then if
its provisions be violated to her injury she wi.l
calmyand resolutely withdraw from the com
pact all obligations of wjiicHv she is expected
scrupulously to fulfil, and from all the benefits
in which she is so ignominiotislv repulsed.?
The crusade against slavery on the part of the
North is merely a struggle for'the power. They
have been so persistently led by perversion to
truth as to induce them almost to hate the South
ern white man and love the black in preference."
In condemning the American party he remark
ed that it was now power!es for.ought but mis
chief The contest now being narrowed down
between the latter and the Democracy, and the
Whig party being extinct, he declared his pur
pose to join the .Democratic party and use hi.-,
utmost efforts to insure its success. Following
the example of better and abler men than him
self, he predicted that in its triumph the Consti
tution would be secured, good feeling restored,
intolerence rebuked, equality of States main
tained, the national corner stone of our Govern
ment fabric preserved in tact and peace and hap
piness smile upon the land.
Mr. Cass complimented Mr. Benjaman, saying
that the sentiments just uttered ought to tind ;?
response in every patriotic heart- His ob
ject in rising was to say to his friend of Missis
sippi that Brown has assailed the squatter sover
eignty of his old friend (laughter) and several of
Brown''sscattSTng weapons had hit him. (Laugh
ter.) This squatter sovereignty he called right
self government It was dear to our fathers of
*7t?, and dear to their decendents of MR. and he
wanted to rescue it from the misrepresentations
cast upon it and asked the lioor on Thursday ,
for that purpose. (Cries of agreed, agreed.)
Mr. Seward in replying to part of .Mr. Uenja
man's remarks affecting himself, said that the
gentleman might have defended his own parti
san history and future course without bringing
him before the Senate and country. Seven years
ago, when he entered the Senate, ^being aware
that every word he said here was recorded at
the exf c lseof seven dollars and a half a column,
he had announced that on no occasion and un
der no circumstances should any member draw
from him a statement or words by which inde
pendently of the measures he maintained or de
fended, it could be known whether he was a
Wliig^ Democrat oir Abolitionist, or belonged to
anyone party or aiother. He thought it un
dignified thus to elevate a party and give it a
p!ace in the history of the Senate, lie had not
risen to asign the objects or purposes of his pub
lic actions. They explain themselves?if they
do not he was willing to re>t under all the re
proach which posterity might cast upon him
Mr. Hale alluded to what he said were grossly
personal attacks upon him in Clay's speech, ami
remarked that he had but one word to submit in
reply?that it will take something beside malfe
nity to redeem imbecility from contempt.
Mr. Clay sprang to his feet much excited, an 1
said: 1 defy the Senator's malice as much as J
condemn his baseness. Xo man shall assail my
rights or chase my constituents, and escape the
responsibility by skulking behind the plea of
non-combatancy. If he had been animated by
those heroic -feelings which lie professes, he
would not come upon this floor and under pro
tection of its rules seek immunity for his inso
lence. I know he is pleased by this attention.
There are those of his class, who. like the Lon
don attorney, Mark Meddler, in the play, are am
bitious of a kick. (Sensation.)
He concluded by remarking that ho had noth
ing more to say to that Senator,having twice de
clined his acquaintance. 11c Asked that patience
of the Senate for consuming so much time
about a Senator wlso soils the carpet on which
he treads.
Mr. Hale replied lie had never songht an in
troduction to him hut once, and that was on pro
fessional business.
Mr Clay thought he shonhl not suffer in aeon
(lict with a man who had repeatedly eaten his own
words.
Mr. Hale replied, that if he did cat his words
he would have a more palatable meal than the
Senator from Alabama, if he should undertake
to eat his. (Laughter.)
House.?Mr. Ritchie presented a memorial
from Judge Irvin, of Penn'a, in response to tm
charges of the Pittsburgh bar against his official
conduct, and asking for a bill for foil investiga
tion. Referred to the Judiciary committee.
The House then proceeded to the considers
tion of the private calender.
The House passed 13 private bills and then
adjourned.
FROM WASHINGTON.
May 3.?The President sent a message into
Congress yesterday enclosing the correspondence
of the Postmaster General with the Panama
K. R. Co., relative to the compensation for car
rying the mails, the latter claiming a greater
rate than has been hitherto allowed, The De
partment offered 18 cts.* per pound, .but the
Company?insist on 22, which would make for
the year ending in March last, nearly {?I33,0f;0.
The Postmaster General says he mu.'t unwilling
ly yield to this unjust demand rather than risk
the consequerces which might -follow the cse*
cution of die Co.'s threat of throwing down the
contract for carrying the mails. The Post en
dorses the Postmaster's recommendation, that
he had better be authorized to contract with
the Co. for the conveyance of the mails across
the Tsthmus at a price not exceeding' $.10,000
per annum, and a!so for a semi-monthly convey
ance of mails from New York and New Orleans
to San Francisco, via Nicaragua, alternately at
regular intervals, with the present line via Pa
nama.
The total number of land warrants Issued un
der the law of March, 1855, is about 127 thou
saud, requiring 15 million ncrc*. The number
of claims is 245.700. Upwards of 14 thousand
warrants, for 1,700,000 acres, were issued iu
April.
A communication from the State Depnrtineut
to the House, in repty to a resolution, says that
the Georgiana and Susan land eases, with others
for indemnity from Spain, are still subject-? of
negotiation.

GREAT ANTI-DYSPEPTIC.
I Dr. Hosteller's preparation H not nn old granny's recipe,
i nor the m&ro experimental result of some Amateur Wiy?l
i dim's verbal investigation. It Is this r*?nli' of a profound
i and elaborate study of one of the most scientific clicuiisb of
the present century.
I?r. Hosteller submits his invaluable llltters to any qhemi
cal testis or what is still better, a personal trial upon your
own constitution. The true properties of these miters' will
be found by the first analysis, an?l the full force of their great
medicinal effect* will l>e uiade manifest in au almost incredi
i blv short space of time upon the system.
! Are yoa Dyspeptic? Then take thece celebrated Stomach
Bitters.
Are yon nilious? Try one bottle Of these Bitters, and be
f relieved at once.
Are you annoyed by indigestion? Remove the cause by the
, free use of these Bitters.
Have you Fever and Ague? How many thousands in the
West ami South have been cured of this constitution destroy
I ing disease, by the use of these Bitters.
All should try this great antidote. W* veuturc to affirm
that while Hostetter's Bitters are used, a case of fever and
ague cannot occur.
One wine glassful, taken three times a day before meals,
will be found a great Ionic agent, which all will appreciate
j when personally satisfied of the fact, as they will be by giv
! ing the Bitters one trial.
j There are other Bitters, represented to be the same, which
j are comparatively worthless. Our Bitters are without a
i rival for their medicinal qualities. They are put up in

was taken with Fever and Ague. For eight long months I
suffered with this dreadful disease. The greater part of this
time I was unable to work, and spent at hast fifty dollars
for different medicines, but I found no )>cruiuncut~ relief.?
Three weeks aco, one of my friends insi-ted upon my try

Improved Artirtoial Teeth.
DR. J. ALLEN, !ate Profcttsor In the Ohio College ofDcB
tal Surgery, invito attention t? hU highly Improved
method of constructing Artificial Dentures, w hlch combine - .
the following advantages:
1. There arc no -ieRiu? or crevice* for the lodgment of food '
! to vitiate the fallen or infect the breath, as not even the -
1 slightest moisture can get between the teeth and-plair^
if. An Artiiicial (iiun, a hlch Is as fl rut and IndcstruetlWe as
1 the teeth, infused at a high beat betw een and around. tbvlr ;\>,
! whlcftlfnlte!* them toea'ch other arid to the |4atr upon '
which they are set. This sum imparts to UieUtlh that pe
! culiar expression and life-like appearance which characterise
i the natural organs.
| Great strength is obtaiuedby thus uniting the teeth . -
zum ami plate, aud no ordinary force of masticating, can 3
| break tiiem from their base.
I 4. A clear and distinct articulation of speech la restomT. ?. *
This important change Is effected by having the Inside or the
1 teeth and gum of a natural Term. To this form the tongue hi yr
readily adapted. This perRvt adaptation of the tongue to %
the denture, prevent* the hissing or muffled sounds In Speak- t
Ingor singing, so often observed in persons wcartn^arflir- , ^
clal teeth.
? 5. The natural forth and expression of the mouth and jfactirc.
can be restored, la caseswhefe they have become sunken.?- ,
This 1* done by means of additional attachment^ to Urn .
frame-work supporting the teeth. These attacldbent* ar*>iL
formed as to bring out the sunken portions, and sustain Uitrn
i in their proper position. They are covered with the abave
\ named gum compound, and become component parts of U10
denture, and whin rightly formed canuot be detected by the -(
closest observer. This method of restoring the cheeks to
their original fullness, and also the natural form and cxprte- 7
sloti of the mouth and lips, has been well tested, having been ?
made a special feature in the author'.* practice for several
years past. A variety of Photographic and Daguerreotype
Likenesses, whlc-h have licen taken of persons without this
improvement and also with It, can be seen at his office, *h'o* -
[ lug the great change in appearance which Is produced in the ^
: countenances of individual* now wearingdcuture&construct- . .
1 ed upon this principle, ? hich the public are invited to call
, and examine, together with other specimens of his work, not ..
i requiring the alwvc attachments.
| b. The plates usually employed for this work are platina, ..
I tlie purity of which prevent* even the slighust tarnish or un- ^
? pleasant taste in the mouth. In i>hort, this system eiubracis 4
? many new aud Imjtortant features, which are readily appre*'
j eiate?i by those wearing artificial dentures n|?on this pruicf
| pie. " With reference to the utility of this method, numL-ruua. %
