The bill introduced by Mr. Douglass in the
Senate on Friday last, provides for a board of
five persons, appointed by the President and
confirmed by the Senate, to make an enume
ration of the inhabitants of Kansas, and a
fair apportionment of the members, of the
Convention to form the new Constitution.—
The election to be held on a day to be desig
nated by the board to be not less than ninety
nor more than one hundred and twenty days
after the passage of the act. The board is to
be entrusted with the appointment of judges
and the selection of places of voting, the elec
tive franchise to be confined to every free
white male citizen of the United States over
twenty-one years of age, who may be bona
fide resident of the Territory on the 21st of
December, and who shall have resided three
months prior to said election in the county in
which he offers to vote. The Convention 'to
assemble in not less than thirty nor more
than sixty days after the election of delegates.
The Constitution to he submitted to the legal
voters for their free acceptance or rejection,
and unless adopted by a majority of all the
legal votes cast, shall be null and void. The
bill also secures the personal and political
rights of the people, including those of speech
and the press.
An official inquiry, instituted at 'Manches
ter, England, shows that, out of sixty-seven
cotton mills in that city, employing 24,294
work people, only thirty mills, employing
10,273 persons, were in full work. Of the
remainder, twenty-five mills and 8,439 peo
ple were working short time, and twelve mills,
with 5,532 hands, were totally unemployed.
Of the fifteen silk mills in the city, none were
fully employed, and two of them had ceased
to run. In the surrounding districts the re:
turns were to the like effect.
The steamer Canada has arrived at Halifax
from Liverpool, with dates to the sth inst.—
The English Parliament was opened by the
Queen in person on the 3d. In her speech,
she rejoiced at the successes of the army in
India, deplored the commercial distress, com
mended the affairs of India to the earnest at
tention of Parliament, promised Parliament
ary reform, and declared that no fears are
entertained for .the peace of Europe.
At the time of the departure of the Canada
from Liverpool, the markets were heavy,
with a declining tendency.
Some additional failures have occurred at
The commercial crisis at Hamburg is fear
ful, business being entirely suspended.
The Kansas letters to the St. Lonis Demo
crat say that an attempt is making along the
border counties of Missouri to form compa
nies of voters to control the election to be
held in the Territory on the 21st inst. At a
mass convention held at Lecompton on the
7th inst., resolutions were passed indorsing
the proceedings of the delegate convention
held at Lawrence on the 2d, and pledging
themselves, individually and collectively, to
oppose to the utmost the constitution adopted
at Lecompton, and to resist every attempt
made to put into operation a State govern
ment under the same.
Important intelligence has reached us from
Florida. The Indian war has assumed a se
rious aspect. The troops have been able, by
forced marches, to come up with Billy Bow
legs' Seminoles, and several smart engage
ments have taken place. In one of these con
flicts Capt. Parkill was killed and several
soldiers were badly wounded. Attempts are
being made to bring on a decisive action.
It is stated by the Washington. correspon
dent of " The Press" that the Senators and
members from Missouri, with many Southern
politicians there, had written to their friends
in that State to prevent any invasion of the
territory, or interference with the election
held in Kansas on Monday last. Those who
favor the Lecompton Constitution use evey
exertion to have the slavery clause stricken
from that instrument, for it is acknowledged
amongst themselves that unless this is done,
they will not have even a shadow of pretence
for sustaining the views which they now en
tertain. A resolution has been introduced
calling upon the president for the correspon
dence between the executive officers of the
Government, and the officers of Kansas, since
the adjournment of the preceding Congress.
This information, when communicated,• will
enable members to vote understandingly on
the vexed questions hereafter to be presented
for their determination.
The Warren (Pa.) Ledger, gives the
following ten reasons why every Democrat in
Congress should vote against the admission
of Kansas until the whole Constitution is sub-
Mitted to the people :
1. Because the Cincinnatti platform was
explicit in the declaration that the "people,
acting through the legally and fairly-express
ed will of the majority of actual residents,"
might decide what kind of a Constitution they
would or would not have.
2. Because Mr. Buchanan's Inaugural and
the President's instructions to Gov. Walker
expressed the sentiment that the 'majority of
the people should have a fair chance to decide
all matters pertaining to that Territory.
3. Because the election of a Democratic
President in 1856 was secured by adopting
the principle of popular sovereignty.
4. Because Governor Walker promised the
people of Kansas that they should have the
privilege of voting upon their Constitution ;
and his course has been approved by every
Democratic newspaper in the Northern States,
and a large number in the Southern States.
5. Because the Calhoun Constitution is no
more the expression of the people bf Kansas
than was the Topeka Constitution; which
lacked legality-in adoption, and was rejected
by Democrats on that account.
6. Because the Democracy will insist upon
5, precedent being established in this case to
govern like cases in all coming time; thus
disposing of a vexed question.
7. Because nineteen-twentieths of the peo
ple of Kansas desire to vote either for or
against the Constitution, and the Calhoun
Convention will only allow them to vote for
8. Because the method proposed of " for
the Constitution with slavery," or " for the
Constitution without slavery," is an anomaly
in American politics, and a dangerpus-piperi
men t. )
0. Because the Calhoun Convention didnot
represent the will of the majority.
10. Because the Democratic party is fully
committed on this question ; and " backing
down" at this time would only please a few
fanatical fire-eaters, and would destroy the
only party which has stood by the people in
The latest news from this region indicates
a continuance of the same excited feeling on
the part of the Mormon people. The leaders
talk as belligerently and absurdly as hereto
fore. The Governor and Legislative Assem
bly "in solemn assembly convened," have
adopted sundry resolutions, with a prelimi
nary of twenty whereases, by way of memo
rial to the President, respecting the Territo
rial officers. They have sent a list of names
of Mormons, from whom they request the
President to select their officers, and threaten
dire vengeance upon any others sent there,
in case of their doing what Brother Brigham
says they can't avoid—make false statements
concerning, and act contrary to the wishes
of the Saints. This really amounts to a re
fusal to yield submission to the officers select
ed by the Government, and a determination
to persist in open rebellion against the con
stituted authorities. The following selections,
from speeches made by the leaders, will indi
cate the true spirit which breathes through
Heber Kimball says—
"We are the people of Deseret; she shall
be Deseret; she shall be no more Utah; we
will have our own name. Do you hear it?—
We are the kingdom of God ; we are the
State of Deseret, and we will have you, Bro
ther Brigham, as Governor, just so sure as
you live. We will not have any other Gov
Elder Stewart, in a sermon, rejoices as fol
"I feel to rejoice that the time has come
for this people, by the sanction of the Al
mighty, and according to the diet. tion of his
servants, to take an independent position,
and throw off the yoke of oppression."
Kimball again says :
"And we will he free from this day hence
forth and forever; and we never will come
under that yoke again. 'I tell you, as my soul
lives, the bowpin has dropped out of old
Bright's bow, and the bow has dropped out,
and the yoke is now on old Buchanan's
And the great Brigham himself lets out as
"It is a pretty bold stand for this people to
take, to say that they will not be controlled
by the corrupt administrators of our general
governMent. We will be controlled by them,
if they will be controlled by the Constitution
and laws ; but they will not. If the troops
are now this side of Laramie, remember that
the Sweetwater is this side of that place.—
They must have some place to winter, for
they cannot come through here this season.
We could go out and use them up, and it
would . not require fifty men to do it: But
probably we shall not have occasion to' take
that course, for we do not want to kill men.
They may winter in peace, at some place
east of us ; but when spring comes, they
must go back to the States, or at any rate
they must leave,t.lo mountains."
The probability is, that the government
will not be required to make much of a cam
paign against this Utah difficulty. The indi
cations are that Brother Brigham will make
a compromise of his difficulties, and as he
can't be Governor any longer in Utah, he
will remove to some other region, where his
official dignities will be better insured to
him. The presumption now is, that his course
will be southward instead of northward, and
that Mexico will have the honor to count him
its subject. The distracted condition of that
nation will give brother Brigham a fine field
for the development of his administrative tal
ents, if he becomes disposed to look beyond
the Saints, and it will prove altogether a
more favorable locality than the inhospitable'
British or Russian dominions. We think a
little resolution. and military preparation on
the part of the general government will dis
pose of this matter.

A Double Murder in Lancaster county.—
On Thursday of last week, some time be
tween 12 and 1 o'clock, two women, Mrs.
Anna Garber, aged 55, and Mrs. Ream, aged
60 years, were murdered in the house of the
former, about three-quarters of a mile from
Neffsville, and three or four miles from Lan
caster. They were horribly butchered, hav
ing their throats cut from ear to ear and
their skulls crushed in. Two- negro travelers
were suspected ; arrested in Lancaster, and
upon, their persons money and other property
belonging to the women were found. They
were committed to prison.
Shocking brutality of a Step-Mother
From the Lancaster (Pa.) Express
One of the most heartless and shocking
cases of brutality we were ever called upon to
record, came to light this morning. A woman
—a fiend—named Rebecca Jane Tomlinson,
residing in East King street, above Church,
at the house known as the Indian Queen tav
ern, was brought before Alderman Leonard
to answer the charge of cruel and barbarous
treatment to her step-child, Jane Tomlinson,
aged ten years.
Officer Gormley, in whose hands the war
rant was placed for the woman's arrest, on
proceeding to the house, found every door and
avenue leading into it barricaded, and it was
with the greatest difficulty that he finally se
cured her and brought her to the alderman's
The child was brought into the office and
presented so sad' and terrible a picture that
no pen could portray the ghastly spectacle.—
Its face was frightfully emaciated, its eyes
sunken far in their sockets, and there was
scarcely a square inch of its face and body
that was not black and blue, and scratched
and scarred by its unnatural and fiendish
mother. One of its eyes—the left—was black
and cut, and swollen almost shut from a re
cent blow, while the other was black and
bloodshot; the lower lip was cut and bleed
ing, and two of the lower teeth knocked out.
The child could not stand without the aid of
a crutch, which lameness is said to have been
caused by its ill-treatment.
Some eight or ten neighbors were present
to corroborate the complaint. It was testi
fied by one of the witnesses that on passing
the house lately, he saw this woman go into
the house, and seeing the child sitting on a
step, she snatched it by the hair and dragged
it around the room several times, beating
and maltreating it in a most frightful man
ner. Another testified that on several occa
sions she tied the child's hands with a rope,
and compelled it to remain sitting in a chair
all night. Other testimonies were given, all
of which exhibited the process of refined
cruelty by which helpless little Jane was re
duced by blows and starvation from a strong,
healthy child, to almost an idiot.
Mrs. Tomlinson, this fiend in human shape
was required to give bail in the sum of $3OO
to answer the charge, but the wretch found
no sympathy anywhere; the avidepce of her
brutality was too plain to every eye.
Terrible Scene in a Theatre.
A writer from Europe gives the following
description of the scene at Leghorn, where,
in an agony of causeless alarm, one hundred
men, of a crowd, were trampled to death,
and five hundred wounded
"The house was crowded. The play 'The
taking of Sebastopol.' The first acts went off
well ; battery after battery exploded, and the
thrilling spectacle made the theatre ring with
applause. All eyes were turned to see them
take the Malakoff. At last it was stormed.—
The soldiers rushed in, then the explosion,
amid the wildest cheers. At that moment a
spark caught the scenes, they blazed, the au
dience thought it a part of the play and
cheered the louder, the scene was so natural.
Alas! it was too perfect. Another moment
* - they,sayi their mistake, a wild cry of misery
, - di. owned the applause. Higher and higher
it rose, maddening the spectators withfright.
'Five minutes more and the fire was eXtin
guished, but the spectators, like a herd of
buffaloes, like a panic-stricken army, like a
flock of sheep before wolves, like passengers
from a sinking ship, losing all thought but
of self-preservation, rushed from their seats.
The shrieks of women, the shrill cry of chil
dren, the hoarse voices of men, all struggling
for life, presented a scene not describable.—
Some threw themselves from the boxes into
the pit, killing themselves and crushing those
beneath them. No judgment, no forethought;
out of the windows, over the lodges, stamp
ing each other to death. The sentinels were
ordeed to stop the passage with bayonets.—
They planted, and those in the front ranks
were run through and through, and the sol
diers, with the rest, were mutilated with the
feet of hundreds."
Life in California---Thrilling Adventures.
In a late number of the Washington Re
view, we find a letter from Geo. 11. Hornish,
now of Marysville, California, but formerly
a resident of Canonsburg, Washington coun
ty, to his sister, in which he relates some
rather startling adventures which he has re
cently had in the land of gold. It appears
that, investing his money in a claim which
did not pay him one cent on the dollar, he
concluded to leave the place; and after pro
curing a remittance from . , San -Francisco,
where he had some money on deposit, he
started South again; accompanied by three
comrades named Moore; Jackson; and An
toine, the two former, as we judge from the
tenor of the letter, being natives of Pennsyl
vania—perhaps of Washington county.,
The party had to cross a high mountain to
reach their destination, and the second day
had ascended its slope a distance of nineteen
miles, when, almost dying from thirst, they
found a spring and encamped by it for the
night. They got supper and lay down to rest,
but were soon afterwards awakened by the
cry of a "Grizzly Bear." Hornish ran to the
nearest tree, and succeeded in getting An
toine and himself up it; but Moore and Jack
son were attacked by two animals, which
proved to be painthers - instead of bears, and
almost instantly killed.' Hornish fired three
times frordthe - tree and killed one of the
Brutes, but not until his comrades had both
fallen. In bii letter he exclaims "I would- to
God our assailants had been bears, for then
I think We should haVe all been saved." .
Hornish and Antoine resumed their jour
ney next day, and reached a point known as
Thompon's Bar, without molestation. Here
they were seized by Indians, of which there
was a camp . in the vicinity, robbed of all
their effects, and turned bare-headed and
bare-footed out of the camp. They hurried
away from the place with all the speed they
were possessed of, but had not gone more
than two miles, when they heard the-Indians
behind them, in , pursuit. Believing that they
intended Mardermg them, they took refuge
in the bushes, each in a different place. Hor
nish remained concealed during the night,
and in the morning ventured to crawl out,
when the first object that met his view was
the lifeless body of Antoine. The scalp had
been taken off, and it presented a ghastly
He was now alone, but nothing daunted,-

made him useful and beloved—that he had died and gone
down into the depths of the sea—we hoped and continued
to hope that lie might be saved. 'We have continued to

lost an active and useful citizen ; his profession has lot one
