which developed itself last week, in the per

She had been employed in the family of Adam

companying this loathsome disease brought
on delirium, under which she wandered off,
and could not be found for several days.—
One night she remained out with nothing for
shelter but a friendly hay-stack, and the pale
moon and stars as her silent watchers. Re
turning to town, she concealed herself in the
stable attached to the Central Hotel, where,
by her groans and sufferings, she was discov

An Old Man's Heroism
Let us turn, says the Evening Journal,
from the political excitements and selfish
schemes of the hour, to contemplate an ex
ample of heroism in age. A venerable tat e s
mall is stretched upon a bed of agony at
Washington. A virulent cancer is gnawing
at his vitals. The disease is mortal—the mo
ment when it shall still the pulse of life is
alone uncertain. The incessant labors and
excitements of fifty years of public activity
have worn and weakened that aged body.—
Under such terrible circumstances, the mass
of men would plead for rest and languish
through the days between them and the grave.
But is has ever been the rule of this great
man to toil. His whole career has been a
wonder of energy and industy. His moder
ate mental gifts were, from his youth, assid
uously cultivated. If he could not be the
most brilliant man in our national councils,
be was resolved to be one of the most useful,
and he accomplished his purpose. Oa many
occassions, during his Senatorial life, the
vast stores of practical knowledge he had
managed to accumilate were brought to bear
to determine difficult questions in a way to
benefit the nation. When the war of faction
drove him from the halLs which he had
adorned, he did not whine over the ingrati
tude of republics, but devoted his talents
with characteristic ardor to a work of im
mense magnitude and of the first importance
to our legislators and the people. The work
is still unfinished—and the old man, racked
as he is with deadly agonies, labors with but
little intermission, hoping only that his breath
may linger long enough to enable him to
give the work to his countrymen in a comple
ted form. We are speaking of THOMAS HART
BENTON. The toiling and suffering statesman
ought to have the profoundest sympathies of
those to whom ho is endeavoring to render
an inestimable service. His most unrelent
ing political foes must yield their admiration
to his indomitable spirit as the awful shadovi
of death approaches that bedside. All must
be anxious to see his present desire gratified
and his task finished before the dread sum
mons arrives. Other hands may complete the
"Abridgement of Congressional Debates."
The eagle may be mortally struck in full
career. But when it is known that the
aged statesman has so set his heart upon
the work, who does not pray that the heroic
toiler may live to see it a finished legacy to
his country I , Ho ! all ye who are studying
to " kill time." Turn your eyes to - Wash
ington, and learn how precious a day may be
to a man of noble purpose.

The Threats of Disunion
In reply to one of the numerous threats
and prophecies of disunion, which, now, un
fortunately, are so common, Senator Critten
den, of Kentucky, a. few days since, made
the following truthful and eloquent remarks :
"With all these arguments and. views, and
in almost every argument and controversy
that I now witness on this floor, are mingled,
to give them strength and point, other prog
nostics of the overthrow of this Government
or threats against its'existence. This is now
the common strengthening means thrown in
to every argument here. While we prize the
Union, while we would, lam sure, and the
very gentlemen who use this language, would
do all they could do to preserve and. perpetuate
the Constitution and the Union, there is nut
a day that we are not doomed to listen here,
over and over again, to threats of its over
throw ; predictions made, little prophecies
thrown out, that to-day or to-morrow, or some
day near at hand, this Government, is to be
no more. Sir, this is the most unfortunate
and ominous sign that exists in the whole
country, in my judgment. If such language
can be familiarly used and thrown into every
argument as a make-weight—as a dust in the
balance—if these threats can be made, against
the existence of the Union, and if they can
have any effect upon the people of this coun
try—then, indeed sir, we may well appre
hend that it cannot last long. I hope it will
last forever. (Applause from the galleries.)
" Yes, sir, and it will last much longer
than gentlemen here, by continual repetition
and reflection, and meditation, believe to be
so near at hand ; and it would last much lon
ger, but for these meditations. They prize
it so highly that the remotest danger effects
them, and they forthwith begin to prophesy
that its end is near at hand ; or they are pro
voked at something which is done, which
they think is adverse to the interest of the Re
public and the Union, and then they threat
en ; but all this is promoting the very purpose
and the very end against which, I know in
their hearts they are-opposed, and with their
hands would oppose.
"We should do well, I think, to throw out
of all our ordinary course of argument, these
threats and these prophecies. I believe the
Union is to live, not because I wish it, or
you wish it, sir, hut it is to live for ages. I
believe it is enshrined in the hearts of the
people, and they will be its sustainers and
maintainers, even if we should. be recreant to
the part we are to act, and desire its over
throw. It is not in our power—thank God
it is not in the power of the Senate, or of the
Congress of the United States—to overthrow
this Government, and I rejoice in it. (Ap
plause in the galleries.)"
From Washington
[Correspondence of The Press.]
WASHINGTON, April 8, 1858
Despite the prophecies of the Union and
other Lecompton organs, the House voted to
adhere to the Montgomery Crittenden amend
ment without a solitary change from the vote
of Thursday last. The vote was 119 to 111.
Mr. Marshall, of Kentucky, had paired off
with Mr. Bowie, of Maryland, who was ab
sent; and if both had voted, the result would
have been the same noble vote of Thursday
last, of 120 against Lecompton, and 112 for
This morning it wag reported about the
city that, if the House adhere to its amend
ment, the Senate would do many terrible
things—the utter annihilation of Douglas,
Broderick, and Stuart, being the smallest
and most good-natured of them. The House
has done the deed, but the feelings of those
who made these threats have calmed down,
and they look upon matters as they are in a
more philosophic mood, and entertain senti
ments of a more enlarged Christianity than
before, and I should not be surprised to see
the steps in the pathway of right entered as
far as the enactment into the law, at a very
early day, of the Montgomery-Crittenden
amendment itself.
I have just learned from a source of un
doubted authority that the President is un
derstood to be in favor of the House amend
ment, and that he has advised that the Sen
ate recede, and adopt it instead of its own
bill. So far, some Senators have been stub
born in their opposition, but it is expected
that they will relent. When this is done,
there will be an end of this vexed question
of a State Government for Kansas, or, rather,
it will be relieved of all its embarrassing and
controversial parts. •
