CONGRESSIONAL.
? Washington-, Dec. 17.
bpNATE.--Mr. Wellcr gave notice that he, im
mediately after the holidays, would call up tho
I acilic Railroad bill under consideration 'last
session, and indulged the hope that this impor
tant measure would command tho votes of the
oenate.
The consideration of Mr. Rusk's bill, allowing
further time for the creditors of Texas to fill
tneir claims, was resumed.
After debate the bill passed.
Mr. James gave notice of his intention to in
troduce a bill establishing a navy yard nt New
port, It. I.
Mr. Seward introduced a resolution, which
was adopted, requesting the Secretary of tho
Navy to report whether, in his opinion, it is
piuctliAbli; L 4 J?
to be so constructed as to afford a grentef^ecu
rity against accidents by fire, than now exist
and submit such suggestions as he may think
proper for legislation on that subject. Adjourned.
House.?15,000 extra copiesof the Secretary
of the Treasury's report on the finances were
ordered to be printed.
lhe President's Message being under consid
eration, Mr. Cruniback defended the Republican
party from the imputations of the PrcriiUnt,
that they had assayed the institutions of the
country and sought to destroy the Union, by
overturning the Constitution. 'lie ventured to
say that if a resolution had been introduced in
the Cincinnati Convention averting that the
Union must be preserved at all hazards, il would
not have received a unanimous vote. When
the President, the great political physician, came
to doctor thcRepublican party for disunion uial
jfflSP' 'lu would commend hini to look at some of
the Southern papers which support the admin
istration, while they advocated a dissolution of
the Union. Tho.Republicans arraign the Pres
ident at the bar or this House for wilful mis
representation. They make no attack on slavery
in the States. They washed their hands of that
institution. But when he said vou attempt to
plant it upon the ground in wliich we have a
common interest, then if wo sulfer vou. to do it
we are responsible for the institution, not oth
erwise. He claimed: the Republican as the only
white man's party in the country.
Mr. Walker made comment o"n that part of
the Message which states the reasons for discon
tinuing diplomatic i elations with Nicaragua, and
expressed^ the opinion that this government
made a mistake from beginning to end concern
ing the whole Central American question. Wish
ing to refresh recollections or the past, he spoke
of the importance of having a peaceful passage
between the two oceans, to be secured by friend
ly relations with Nicaragua, and dwelt at length
ou intestine troubles In Central America, to
show England's ngcncy in fermenting the exist
ing warfare, she having supplied Costa Rica with
arms, to be directed against Nicaragua, whose
minister we had received. Ho insisted on tho
importance of having some settled understand
ing with Central America. lie should like our
government to abandon neutrality. Clouds
seemed lowering aver Walker, at whom the eves
of all the world were directed. No man has
been more maligned thnn General Walker. He
was endowed with all tho elements which made
a hero, ir not a statesman?young, bold thought
ful, scholarly, self-sustaining, lie went ^Ni
caragua with no vile purposo of plunder, backed
by no strong forces, but by iuvitation of those
who were fighting for freedom and seeking to
revive tho fortunes of that republic. The Pres
ident may hare acted wisely in discontinuinsr
diplomatic relations with Nicaragua, but Walk"
er was at the head of the only legal power au
thorized to rule the rein, and was the represen
tative and type of our own nationality, and the
instrument by which our rights in tho future
may be secured and advanced. If it was im
portant in May last to re-organize Walker's
government because of protection, necessary to
be afforded to our citizcns in that quarter, sure
y the subject is not less iiuportan t now.
1 he speeches of the Presidential canvass were
not true as charged by his colleague, (Cumback)
that the Democrats of Indiana in the Iatc~elec
Uon pandered to the spirit of freesoflism. His
colleague was the last man who shonld make that
charge. Did he not know that in his own ranks
there were not only freesoilers, but Abolitionists
proper, and that the lowest and most God-for
saken negro advocates, including black Win.
I Anderson, who was recently arrested at Louis
ville as ail Abolition emissary, were bis (Cum
back s) allies ?
Mr. Cumback?Do I understand my col
league as charging that Anderson stood by me
in the canvass in my district?
Saj that a negro made IHack
Republican stump speeches at the same time my
inide speeches,;
Sir. Cumback?I never saw hira.
mwcre sont ont t(>
meet Gov. \\ 11 lard, the latter canvassing on
brnad national ground?.
Mr. Colfax?I heard something about this
Anderson, namely; that he wiu gent to Kikhardt
county to make Republican speeches, and that
the Republican Central Committee repudiated
liira and charged that ho had been hired by po
litical opponents for this purpose. Does not
my colleague know that this is a mutter of pub
lic nationality? [Laughter.]
Mr. English said ho never heard the charge,
and did not believe in its truth. In the course
of his remarks he asked whether there was a
Southern man who would not vote for the ad
mission of Kansas into the Union as a free State
if thisWas the undoubted will of its people.?
(A voice?"not one."
Mr. Urookssoid he as a Democrat and a South
Carolinian, would vote for the admission of n
State excluding slavery, provided this be done
by a majority of actual settlers, but ho repudia
ted squatter sovereignty in tho Territory as ef
fecting Southern rights and did not wish to lose
the beneGt or the Nebraska and Kansas bill. .
Adjourned.
FROM WASHINGTON.
Dec. 17.?The truth of. the reiuo'val of .Judge
Locoinptc is noiv confirmed by 'the noiuinnliou

Supreme Court of Kansas. The removal was
contemplated at least forty days ago, and
which, it is said, that Judge Leconipte was aware
of; but up to this time nothing has been heard

Central America, which was ordered to be print

ing for indemnity losses sustained in consc
quencc of alleged unlawful detention of letters
at the Saii Krnnccsco Post OfOco, by the direc
tion and sanction of the P. M. General.

St. Lotus, Dec. 17.?Ool. Titus, of Kansas,

President of the Chicopee Nation has beo receiv
ed. The Affairs of the nation are in a prosperous
condition. Civilization progresses steadily, and
religion and education have received marked at
tention. The necessity of providing for the
payment of tho public debt is strongly urged,
also an increase in school funds. As a means of
accomplishing these objects, a retrocession of
neutral land is favored.
Respecting the complaints made against per
sons connected with the American Board of Mis
sions tampering with slavery, the President says.:
"Slavery being recognized by the latmgJjj^n
