The Commissioners in accordance with the true
spirit and, meaning of the law, we understand,
awarded the contracts as they were bound to dri, to
the lowest bidders who %vete considered rubstan
tial and competent to do the work. This was cer
tainly right, and it is expected the contracts will be
rigidly enforced, and in case of abandonment the
per centage retained. The experience incontract
ing is now so genet.d, that there can be but little
excuse for men bidding below what the work
can be done for, anti then abandoning it and
procrastinating its completion. In all such cases
the penalty ought to be rigidly enforced. We hay.
been informed th.ii the bids are nearly, if not quite,.
30 per cent. heluw the estimates of the engineers,
and that, at the same rate, 0 would not cost a mil
lion of dollars to complete the whole line in the
bett and most substantial manner.
We never doubted for a single moment that the
work would be comple , ed, if funds were provided
to carry it on wish proper economy, within the es
=awe; of Mr. Foster, and we are now mote than
ever sanguine in this belief. The apprehensions
which has been generally entertained, that this
work would cost the state double the amount of.
the estimates : and involve an extravagant and Un
profitable expenditure, the public may rest assured t
is-wholly unfounded, as the result will prove. "If
the funds are provided for its completion, and the
work carried on as it ought to be, it will prove to
be the best improvement. It will soon return the
amount of money to the treasury now wanted to
finish it, and create a permanent sinking fund in it
self, of not less than $.300,000 per arnom. A few
years are only necessary to test the truth of this
opinion, and we voluntarily stake any little repute
lion we may have on the result, if it is properly'

much'the same results. The Free Soil vote has
been given to htesers. Root, Tuck and Wilmot, al.
temately, - IVre Non' eTerrW and Campbell,
otiVritiny A'oefi for Winthrop. Still; unleriethe
party lines are broken, no Speaker can be elected
who is obnoxious to the Free Soilera. We hay() a
report that on Friday night, a caucus of the Demo-
rratic members ‘ras held, and Mr. Cobb withdrawn.
Should this be the case, and an unexceptionable
man be substituted, it is probable that a speaker
was elected on Saturday.
The small band of men who have stood so firm
in this struggle, have earned themselves high hon
or, and deserve the gratitude of the North. For
-the first time iii the last few years, the Slave Pow
e. has been unable to effect its purposes. A few
determined and uncorrtiptible men have held in
check the influence which heretofore has been
accustomed to ride-over and dictate to the councils
of the nation. The outset of this contest was mark
ed with the usual arrogance -Which characterizes
the South. They went into the cau c us with the
express determination to support no one for Speak
er who was not pledged to them. They have been
signally -, foiled and baffled in the undettaking.—
This check is soon to be followed, we trust, by oth
er and more signal demonstrations which will
overthrow- the power which has controlled.. and
dictated the Dermnratic party so long. The men
who at the outset of the present Congress—so pr g-
oath with good or evil to our country—have learn
ed the Slave Power that it is not all potent, have
earned the highest praise. •
. two Binghamton Democratic papers—the
Democrat and the Courier, have been Purchased

Mr. Clay In BalUmore.
Hon. HENRY CIA• arrived in Baltimore on Fri
day, and was warmly welcomed by thousands o
his friends. He addressed the people from Bar
num's Hotel.
He said that he always felt at home when hi
Mariland, the Sate being the birth-place of his
better half. He felt afraid - that the importance of
his return to the Public Councils of the Country
was over rated by his friends. • He still felt his old
devotion to the service of the public, but, at the
same time, he felt the weight of time upon
which unfits him fur the active' senrice of - his ear=
tier rlays..,
He they, alluded to the slavery question, and
said there was unnecessary agitation upon the sub
ject. The evil could never exist in California and
New Mexico. The Cool climate, the business of
the country, the habits and pursuits of. the people
• forbid it.
He then spoke of the importance of the Union,
and said that, contrasted with it the slavery ques
tion sank into nothing. Under all circumstances,
he would stand by the Union. •
lie considered that nu ono question could be of
sufficient imporance to cause a dissolution, and
let the storm-come from what quarter it may, he
should deknd ;he Union, fight or wrong. •
If it should be dissolved, our country would re ?
quire no historian. Men would.arise and play the
part of Philip and Alexander.' There would be
foreign alliance, and foreign* lad domestic. wars,
until every trace of liberty be lost in this past of
the world., • . .

with feeling and powerful effect. He thanked the
people for the .affectionate kindness they. had

Armitsw Jmussou of Tenn. oflere the following
resoluti ,, n
Resolved, That on the next vote, the individual
receiving the plurality of votes shall be Speaker,
and be so declared by the'Clerk.
Mr. .brasc E. Holmes of S. C. moved to lay it on
the table.
Mr. Joinnes said that he was aware that a long
established custom of the House w 4 to vote viva
core, and he was disposed to comply with this cos.
tom now; but Congress was convened *o dispose
of the public business, and none could be transact
ed until the House was organized. Mr. J. eonsid
ered that a Speaker el cted by a ph:sulky of votes
would answer all useful purposes, as far as business
is concerned. as if elected by a majority. Mr. 3.
was desirous that a Speaker, whether Whig or Dem
ocrat, aboakl be elected at once, to suable :he
House to dispose of the public business.
Mr. Houma opposed the resolution. He said
that .he Constitution of the United States was form
ed and ratified by majorities. History teaches as
the dangers of being controlled by a minority. A
House, composed of two hundred and thirty-mesa
bens, might be broken into fractions of twelve or
fourteen. Dersiiigoguism is abroad • it cannot be
sesisted . .; it is one of the spirits of dm age 'it is
not tot us, continued Mr. H, to , silvance the spirit
which threatens to;overthrow all that is conserva
tive pd valuable to the Union.
Geoaria Aeneas of Mass said that he wis
smiling the proposition; -but if il Should be adopted,
he wanted it followed up by another, namely.
we voter by_ballott. -
Mr. A. W. Vessetz of -N. C. was opposed to
both propositions. He paid he never knew ial

needed namely to state the! the only authority
which, the Clerk kossinees to exercise the (unctions
of Speaker, is by 'the acquiescence of the body
atone." The Clerkieenly responsible es Clerli.— .
In regard to the individual mentioned the member
from Florida, and Mr. hfcClernand, had talked the
matter otrer, and agreed to decide who should be
mentioned to the noon for temporary Chairman.
The Mines of Patton and Boyd were put into the
hat and Boyd's was drawn out first. .
Mr, Wmusx Dues, of New York, said that it
the Hobad already expressed its opinion, it
termite no great sagacity to see that the tempts.
ry chaff an would be speaker.' Once in the chair
he would continue there. A more liberal proposi
tion werild be to place the Speaker of the last House
in the chair, until one was elected. This would be
a fair compromise: (Laughter.) Itwould not be the
extreme of liberality 'to give the administration a
Speaker friendly to it.
Mr. Timms 11 BAIL; of Virginia, asked him
withdraw his motion.
Mr. Dues refused became he would have to al.
low others a similar privilege to debate.
Mr. Remy, however, vote in snpport of the pro
position of Mr. McC. The only object of Mr Doer
to it. was that the probabiity was that the tempo
mry chairman would be i effect the Speaker.
Mr. Does-1 did not ay probability, • but that
i f .
once in the chairman could not be got out. •
Mr. Basta—That would depend onthe manner
he discharged his duly ; and for this he might be
continued. Mr. Duer seems to object to Mr. Boyd,
who is senior in service in the House. During,
27th Congress the House elected Mr. Adams,by
universal consent, to be Chairman until a Spe aker
was elected. Mr. Boyd would have no other pow
er but to keep order. His conduct could not effect
the administration in any respect.
Mr. ALEXANDER Evans: of Md. then offered a
resolution as rienbatitute. It was:
That Mears Boyd and Vinumehould-preeide al
ternately as Chairman until the electioe of a Speak
Moe. of i. Agreed.")
Mr Roam. C. SCHENIIK, of Ohio. moved an
amendment to Mr. McClemand's resolution. which'
was accepted :
That the acts of the Chairman should have no
connection with the legislation
Mr. Joseph M Roar. of Ohin-11 the r e is to b e
a compromise. all parties should be represented.—
(Laughter.) He should like to see Boydruid Vinton
sitting aide by aide., A "spoken team" would
suit him well. Redid not know whether the House
would like it. but he would like to have with those
gentleman Joshua R. Giddings. [Laughter .),He wa-,
however, indifferent as to the fare of, the 'esoteric,' .
They will stand or lie flown together, and look Well
anywhere. [Laughter i
Mr. Dsvin Wit.irivellaid he hart never intern the
House so orderly as now. and he telt assured that
the forbearance and cool-headnesa of the House
could be relied on. ff the resolution be adopted
the etmtect would he prolonged for a week. He
believed the controversy near an end.
The question was then taken. and the pmpori
tions were laid on the toble. Vent 116 Nays 104.
Mr. FREDERICK P Srantrox of Tenn then propos
ed the same resolution, substituting the name of
Vinton for Boyd
Mr. Vinton of Ohio, hoped it weak] be laid on
the table.
Mr. SvAnvon withdrew it.
On motion of Mr JOHN Weirryvoiern of 111. the

It is *Waisted that during the whole of the pug

Fronithese and other alleged facts, such suspie
ions:tier& aroused, that, in the Professor's absence
last evening Mr. Ephraim Littlefield, whO has the
care of the -college Wilding and grounds, was to
dueed to break the partition wall to the vault under
the rrivate labgratory of Prof e ssor Webster, in the
basement of the building, and there discovered one
Teg and a portion of the trunk' of a human corpse!
—in a condition which -made it apparent that the
remains hatknot long been there deposited.
This discovery, with the fact that Prof. Webster
is not an anatomist or surgeon, but simply a chem
ist. and haling nothing professionally to do with
the dissection of bodies, was ample to give rise to
'the astounding suspicion that Dr f ) arkinan had thus
been most foully and diabolically murdered..
Prof Webster was accordingly arrested at his
residence in Cambridge, by officers Clapp and Rice
and liskted in Deverett street jail, there to await
Writer development'. Wejtear that he was inten
sely -excited on the occasion and gave way to vie
lent exclamations, some of which, if reported cor
rectly would seem to etre, giber the chain of
minimal:ices pointing to the deepest guilt. Among
other language of a similar import, it is currently
stated that he need the following;—" Can it be that

immplice) has betrayed nu I" He was lodged in
Lereren-st. goal on :Friday night. In the morn

Officers were despatched to-make further inres

but no additional evidence was elicited. " The Med

Among other eirromstanee which have confirm
ed the suspicion against Prof.: Webster, smite his

stout tin, soldered tight, with the exception ot - the
cover which wias to be so made that it could' easily

about three feet in length by one foot and • half in
depth and breadth, and was to have been seat to-
Prol. Webster on Friday, the day of hie wrest.
The facts as thus far ascertainedehougheompelt
ing the moat painful suspicions, it tepreinmed will
not be deemed sufficient to afford a legal proof of
the guilt of the accused. The body of Dr. Parkman
has not been irdentified, andloin the mangled con
dition of the remains this must be difficult if not
impossible. We have, moreover, nothing but the
imperfect version oldie story, rendered in the Jour
