To this the North raised a strong opposition and aided by a number of so called democrats, combatted every inch of ground. Judge Doug las at the head and front of the Democracy, was doing buttle for right and justice. Tho contest was warm and bitter. To be President did not proscribe those who thought differently with him, upon this important point, but lie took a lively interest in the success of the territorial bill. Among the many political dogmas that were dragged into this contest was the right of suffrage in the territories. John M. Clayton took ground against persons of foreign birth having the right to vote in the territories until they had been residents of the country five years, and become naturalized; many thought they shuuldc grounds that tho citizens of Lousiana did. Mr. Blatherskite, following i Clayton, stood upon the him, and made speeches in favor of ment that would have the tendency to prevent of foreign birth having the privilege that had been granted to the citizens of Lousi d other territories—tho right of electing own olflcers, and through them, make laws.

These men, how in their lives tried their hands At anything hut murder, and such work ns they did not come kindly to them. Their reward to be the profit on the articles manufac tured ; hut the manufacture was so had, nnd the profit, in consequence, so small, that the labor bccame first discontented, then disgusted, and then enraged, at their having condescended to anything at once so mean and unprofitable as regular industry. One day, in order to make end of the business, they set fire to the whole plant, and burned it to the ground. Here they had reckoned, however, without their host, Lieutenant Brown; for the circumstance only made him the more determined and per emptory. He turned out the whole village morning and evening for six hours, to make bricks sufficient for a shed eighty feet by forty; and having completed the building, he borrow ed £50 from the government to roof it in.

From the year 1840 to 1817, this establishment has increased tenfold; it has now upwards of twenty large workshops, built in good style by the Thugs themselves; and among the hands are 150 hoys, most of than ordinary workmen in the town.

Wo have hut their leisure trait to add to this cheering picture. The question Is no longer how to induce the attendance of the children nt the factory ; hut, on the contrary, the ad vantages derivable from permission to do so manifest, that the superintendent is able to make a condition with their parents.

In the account already referred to of the Dundee School of Industry, we gave tails of the previous habits of the objects of the institution ; but a picture of the same kind in the present case, besides being infinitely more painful, would have no compensating utility, referring, as it would do, to a state of society so widely different from with reference to the above history of their reform, wo must say enough to dispossess readers of the idea, if any of them have formed it, that the Thugs were mere ignorant nnd bru who murdered from an innate correspondent de I, Still, tal wretch« ferocity of character.

The patie ingenuity they of civilized life, receivo a remarkable illustra tion from tho following anecdote related by Colonel Sleetnan himself : , perseverance, and isingin the arts "A stout Mogul officer, of noble hearing and singularly hundsomo countenance, on his way from the Punjaub to Oude, crossed the Ganges at Giirmiiktesur Ghat, Meeruth, to paBS through Moradahad and Bareilly.

They accosted him in a respectful manner, and attempted to enter into ersation with him. He had heard of Thugs, and told them to ho off. They smiled at his idle suspicions, and tried to remove thorn ; but all in vain ; tho Mogul mined : they saw his nostrils swelling with in dignation, took their leave, and followed slow ly. The next morning he overtook the number of men, but of a different appearance, all Mussulmans. They accosted him in tho same respectful manner; talked of tho danger of the road, aud the necessity of their keeping together, aud taking advantage of the protec tion of any mounted gentleman that happened to bo going the same way. Tho Mogul off' -'r said uot a word in reply, resolved to have a o companions on the road. They persisted : his nostrils began again to swell, and putting his hand to his sword, lie bade them all be off, lie would have their heads from theirsbouldes. Ho had a bow and quiver full of arrows bis shoulders, a brace of loaded pistols in his was!belt, and a sword by his side, and was ol togetlier a very formidable-looking cavalier. In tho evening, another party, lodged in They were going ^the road : and as tho Mogul overtook them iu tho morning, they made their hows rospectfully, and began to enter into conversation with their two friends tho groom and the butlor, who Hinting up behind. The Mogul's nostrils began again to swell, and ho hade tho stran gers he off. Tho groom and butler interceded ; for their master n grave, sedate they wanted companions. All would not do ; and the strangers fell in tho day, when they had got to tho middlo of , and Tho next extensive and uninhabited plain, the Mogul i ndv rants a few hundred yards behind, he up to a party of six poor Mussulmans sitting weeping by the sido of a dead companion.

Tho Mogul dismounted ; the body had b* placed in its proper position, with its head i.

He th knelt down, mid began to re pent the funeral servico in a clear, loud voice. Two of the poor soldiers knelt by him, each side, in silence. The other four went off a few paces, to beg that the butler aud groom interrupt the his devotions. All being of the four, in a low-under tone good •Samaritan ready, gave the shimee (signal;) the handkerchiefs thrown their necks, and in a few minutes all three—the Mogul and his servants —were dead, and lying in the grave in the usual manner—the head of at the feet of the one below him. All the parties they had met on the road belonged to a gang of Junial dehce Thugs, of the kingdom of Oude. In de spair of being able to win the Mogul's confi dence in the usual way, and determined to have the money and jewels which they knew he carried with him, they had adopted this plan of disarming him ; dug the grave by the the side of the road, iu the open plain, and made a handsome young Mussulman of the party the dead soldier.
