    as candidates for United States Senator. Af
t(,r the election last fall, when the administra
tion party was so signally overthrown, all of
the previously talked of " old line democratic"
candidates, except Mr. Cameron, retired at
once from the field. The decided adverse po
litical character of the Legislature, precluded,
a , it W as supposed, the possibility of their el
ction; and they ceased to be spoken of as can
didates, and were no longer before the public
a< such. These, and others of this class, were
tiie meu, over whom, I had repeatedly expres
sed a preference for Mr. Cameron ; and it fol
lows of necessity, that such expression was
made, when they were understood to be candi
dates or " rivals" for the office Mr. Cameron
was seeking.
1 have said enough to show the infamous
means employed by Mr. Chase, to make me
the victim of his falsehood and misrepresenta
tion. A word as to the reasons and motives
of his conduct.
1 would not consent to co-oporatc with him
in a systematic course of fraud and deception.
I wonld be a party to no shams. I would not
display the banner of Freedom to betray it. I
would not make hypocritical professions of at
tachment to the principles of Freedom, for the
purpose of leading the masses into the support
of slavery propagandism. In short I would
not become a co-partner in his infamy, in pre
senting Gov. Bigler before the people, as the
candidate and friend of Freedom, when 1, and
lie. and every intelligent man iu the State and
County, knew that lie stood as the candidate
of the National Administration, and the repre
sentative of its principles and measures. If I
hud earned for myself a portrait, drawn in the
same colors, as that presented of him by a lead
ing Bigler paper, Mr. Chase to-day would have
been my friend ; and instead of devoting al
most his entire paper to misrepresentations and
falsehoods aimed at me, would have been ex
tolling me as a model of political consistency
and integrity.
The motive for the perpetrating of this au
dacious villiauy at this juncture, is too plain to
lie mistaken. It was intended for effect upon
the Legislature, and to influence the result to
eoiuc off on Tuesday next, the 27th inst. For
this reason it was held back until it was tho't
too late to expose and counteract the fraud.—
1 heard two weeks ago through a letter writ
ten hv Mr. Laporte to E. (). Goodrich, that
Mr. Chase—then in Harrisbnrg—was showing j
a letter from me to Mr. Cameron, containing I
expressions of kindness and personal regard, !
with a view to influence my friends to the stii>-1
pert of that gentleman. When informed of i
tin's by Mr. Goodrich, 1 remarked at once, that 1
1 cared nothing about it beyond the fact, that
Mr. Cameron had allowed so unscrupulous and ;
unprincipled a man as Mr. Chase to have pos-1
session of the letter. The result lifts demon- ]
;-trated, that this remark was not withoutfoun-1
dation. The letter was not written for exhi
bition or publication ; and yet if Mr. Chase |
chose to make this use of it. I cared not a ;
straw if it were published in every pajteriuthe j
Commonwealth, and read by all her citizens.
I thought, I confess, that it Was trenching up- j
on the point of honor and gentlemanly inter- 1
course, to place the letter in the hands of a
known unscrupulous enemy. This act justly
makes Mr. Cameron responsible ; and a sharer
in the infamy which attaches to the use that
has been made of it. The only apology he can
oiler for placing the letter in the hands of Mr.
Chase, is that he wished it to lie used in the
maimer, and tor the purpose it lias been used ;
a lid thai there was no man in the State, Mr.
Chase excepted, who would stoop to an act so
shameful and base.
But to the letter, and the motives for its
garbled publication at this time. So little
thought did 1 give the subject, and so little did
1 care about if, when I learned that Mr. Chase
was showing the letter in llarrisburg, that I
did not even write to my friend Laporte upon
the subject. 1 well knew that it contained
nothing of the least importance, and that it
could not fairly lie used to influence the action
of anv one.
The first use made of my letter, was to see
if the tone of personal kindness that pervaded
it, eouid not be used to win over some of un
friends to the support of Gen. Cameron. Mr.
Chase is the agent, employed for this (compar
atively honorable) work. This was a failure.
The letter, even in Mr. Chase's hands,- did not
prove me zealous enough in behalf of Mr. Cam
eron, to induce any of my friends to come to
his snppu t. The next use made of it, is to
present a garbled publication, on the eve of
commencing again the ballotings for Senator,
with a view to prevent the opponents of Mr.
Cameron uniting upon me. Mr. Cameron's
friends in the Legislature are comjiact and
organized, and within a few votes, number the
figure required for an election. It is other
wise with his opponents —they are broken and
divided between rival candidates, and agreeing
only in one tiling—opposition to the election
of Mr. Cameron. If they can only lie kept
divided, il is easy to see that the disciplined
forces of Mr. Cameron, must in the end prevail.
I had received more votes on the second and
!a>t ballot, against Gen. Cameron, than had
m en given to any other candidate—Mr. Bnck
aiew excepted, whose election his friends do
not count upon or expect. It was feared that
the opponents of Gen. Cameron (not including
the members who voted for Buckalcw) might
concentrate upon me, and thus present the
strength ol an united body in opposition to his
election. Mr. Cliase evidently feared this, and
contemplated with dismay the possibility of my
>urc>s. What so well calculated to prevent a
union upon mo, among a class of men whose
i'otnl of cement in action, was opposition to
* .macron, as to represent me to be really in
jha! gentleman's favor ? What better calcu
lated to excite against me, men so feeling, than
'V mc as declaring my preference for
'-micron, over those candidates in whom they
l;| ' bit an especial interest, and whom they
!iy a.Mije in uniting upon me ' Or in
u |)a' way could Gen. Cameron's success be so
'' 'I.J;! Y promoted, as by keeping his oppo-
H' l ken and divided '? LI -re lies toe true
" r ' ! 't this most infamous business : Fear of
d'ction, and a desire to promote the suc
ol (on. Cameron.
Mr. Chase, in his comments on my letter,
o characteristic, recklessness, asserts, that I
,;u ' ''barged Mr. Cameron with trying to bribe
'to> his support. It is false ; and no crcdi
witness can be called in its support. Were
,lot an impeachment of Gen. Cameron's

, 11 'ouciusion, l challenge Mr. Chase to
. 1 my letter in the hands of Mr. Grow, who
will beat home in a few days, that a veritable
copy may be published. Such publication, I
affirm, will sustain all, and more than all, that
I have herein charged against him.
SERIOUS LOSS. —A fire, on Tuesday after
noon, at Washington city, destroyed Colonel
BENTON'S house, furniture, valuable private pa
pers, and all his manuscripts, including a part
of his "Thirty Years," and much material for
it, consisting of original correspondence with
the earliest Presidents, and other public men.
The Sentinel fears that papers have been de
stroyed that were essentia! to the elucidation
and illustration of the History of American po
litics for the last half century. The Globe, of
Wednesday, adds:
"We think it worthy of note to write down
that we saw Col. Benton for a few minutes, at
a quarter past ten o'clock, last night, when he
was about sitting down to re-write, for this
morning's Globe, the sjieeeh which he made the
day before yesterday, on the presentation of
Gen. Jackson's sword to Congress, which he
had revised, but had returned to our office a
part only ; the balance he had left in his office
and it was burjit. He said he had it all in his
head, and it should come out before he slept.
"A\ e asked him if his house was insured,
and he replied, as near as we can recollect as
follows : "No it was not insured ; but I care
nothing about that; insurance could not have
saved all that I considered valuable—the bed on
which my wife died, on which I slept; her
clothes, Which were in a trunk sitting at the
head of it; the articles which she prized most,
around it—the last things 1 saw at night, and
the first in the morning-—and the papers in the
adjoining room, many of which cannot be sup
plied. But what I shall most feel—more than
1 now do—will be the loss of the memorials of
my wife, whose body, still above ground, it
will be my first care to remove to St. Louis,
when released from Congress, to buried in the
place in which I had collected the remains of
my dead—my mother, children, grandchildren,
sister, —to take the place by their side which
she and I had marked out. for ourselves.'"
CONGRESS adjourned on Sunday I.T-t, at 12
M. having passed the Appropriation bill in the
last hours of the session. Among its acts were
the passage of the Postage Bill, fixing the pos
tage for a distance less than three thousand
miles at three cents, and over at five, providing
that all letters shall be prepaid, after next
December with stamps; and that letters contain
ing money may be registered,though preserving
the irresponsibility of the department ; the
Ship Passengers' Bill supplies important addi
tional securities to the health and comfort of
the emigrants who crowd to our shores ; and
the Shipwreck bill furnishes new and most val
uable facilities for rescue in case of shipwreck,
or of serious danger upon our coasts. The Te
legraph bill provides for the construction of a
line of Telegraph to the Pacific, at tlie expense
of the grantees, giving a right of way two hun
dred feet in width, and putting the same under
the protection of tlw Government. The bill
fur the Reorganization of the Navy creates a
retired list and fhe Naval Discipline Bill. The
Court of Claims Bill establishes a tribunal for
the adjudication of private claims, which will
not only save the national legislature a great
deal of valuable time, but will secure a prom la
titude and justice in the disjiosition of this kind
of business.
We have received the annual rqiort of the
Pennsylvania State Lunatic Asylum, for 1854.
The institution is located near llarrisburg, and
the buildings are. extensive and commodious.—
The report informs us that of the whole number
of patients admitted to the institution during
the four years it has been in operation, although
a reasonable number have been discharged as
restored or improved, yet there is a remainder
which increases annually, and may be
considered as a permanent charge. This was
37 in the year 1851, and 10b in 1852,
and 182 in 1853, and 214 in 1854. During
the last year 111 patients have been admitted,
70 being sent by the public authorities and 74
by their friends, amounting, with the reraaiudcr
from the previous year, to an aggregate of 320
patients, of whom 112 have have been discharg
ed, .'27 as restored, 22 as improved, 30 as
stationary, and 22 by death. Of the remain
ing 211, the number of males is 127, and of
females 87. The report says that more than
three hundred patients cannot be accommodated
in the institution with benefit, and as applica
tions for admission are increasing, many must
necessarily be refused. In view ot this, the
managers recommend the establishment of
another institution in Western Pennsylvania.
Of the patients who have been in the institu
tion since its establishment, 333 were natives
of Pennsylvania, and 104 of foreign countries,
57 being from Ireland, and 27 from Germany.
GEN. JACKSON'S SWORIL —The sword which
Gen. Jackson bequeathed to the late General
Armstrong, of Tennessee, was, on Monday last
presented to the Government of the United
States, and accepted. On the resolution of ac
ceptance, bv Congress, Gen. Cass and Senator
Bell, made eloquent speeches in the Senate, and
Col. Benton and Hon. Messrs. Smith and Zol
licoffer, of Tennessee, in the House. The House
done a very unusual thing on this occasion.—
It gave the ladies permission to occupy the
floor of the Hall, in large numbers, during the
interesting ceremonies.
FOREKJ.V NEWS. —Since our last issue, the
steamship St. Louis and Canada have arrived.
From the seat of war there is little or no
additional news, affairs remaining the same as
at last reported. The Peace Conference was
to open at Vienna on the 26th of February.—
Lord JOHN* RUSSELL left London fur the
Austrian capital, to assume the [tost of Pleni
potentiary of the British government in the
conference. The Western alliance has been
strengthened by the accession of Naples.
of the owners of the Collius line of steamers to
get the extra allowance out of the public trea
sury for four years louger, without the power
of Congress to rescind the contract which it ex
pressly reserved, has very properly failed, thro'
the interposition of the Presidential veto, Go
vernment has been paying an enormous amount
of mouey, as the President shows, for this mail
service, without a corresponding public advan
tage. The fact is only another proof that
whenever government attempts to foster with
bounties-any particular enterprise, it is only
working mischief, interfering with free compe
tition, and paying a costly sum for service whieli
would be better and cheaper performed if pri
vate enterprise were left to perform the work
iu its own way, assisted only by its own ener
gies, and the necessary economy with which
service is performed when in such hands. A
grant of an extravagant sum by Government
is made the pretext for another still more ex
travagant, and the necessity for aid grows just
in proportion to the facility with which the mo
ney can be procured from the public treasury.
The President deserves great credit for this
veto, and so far as checking unjust legislation
is concerned, he is entitled to the gratitude of
the country. This veto, and the veto of the
Spoliation bill, shows that he is determined to
guard the Treasury against the schcmesof those
who make plundering a business.
elections were held in the towns of several of
the States. These contests have been particu
larly sharp and exciting, and their effects are
of more importance, than usually attend such
struggles. In every instance, we believe, the
question has been distinctly drawn between the
Know Nothiugism and anti-Know Nothingisin.
In New-York municipal elections were held
Tuesday in Oswego and Auburn. In the for
mer, the fusionists, composed of whigs and for
eigners, succeeded in electing their candidate
for Mayor by a handsome majority over the
Know Nothing nominee. In Auburn, howev
er, the Know Nothings were successful by a
majority of two hundred over a candidate of a
coalition formed of all the old parties and fac
tions. At Rochester, Norwich, Oxford, and
Sherburne, the Know Nothings were also suc
cessful. At Utica, the Whig ticket was cho
sen, while at Syracuse and Troy the fusionists
triumphed. At Newport, Ky., the American
ticket was defeated. Throughout Massachu
setts the Know Nothings have Sustained their
ascendancy, four-fifths of the towns heard from
having been carried by that party. At De
troit, Mich., a democratic Mayor has been cho
sen by a large majority. In Maine the Know
Nothings have carried everything before them.

upon the most peaceblc basis. To this Mr.

interest attaches to it, since, in addition to the

ANOTHER!—A gentleman living in JLussa,
Herkimer county, who was in this city yester
day, informed us that a horrible tragedy was
reported to have occurred in that vicinity a
few days since. As the story was told us, two
boys, aged 12 and 14, respectively engaged in
a quarrel which terminated in a threat on the
part of the youngest lad, that lie would shoot
his antagonist. He went to the house, asked
his mother to hand down from a shelf a pistol
which lay there, and told her he was going to
shoot a boy with it. She supposed that he
only joking, gave him the pistol. He took it,
walked out toward where the other boy stood,
and deliberately shot him through the head,
killing him instantly. The boys were said to
be both Irish. Our informant did not learn
the names. — I 'lica Herald, 2(i//
THE FUTURE OK EUROPE. —Kossuth closes
a recent lengthy letter to a gentleman in this
country, by summing up the present condition
of things in Europe, as follows:—"Our news
you kuow.from the papers. Their policy is: 1.
A small ministerial change here in men, but
not in policy. England's absolute nudity of
inherent weakness; England's aristocracy de
caying fast; the British empire drifted towards
a revolution scarcely to be prevented any
more. 2. BONAPARTE drifting from folly to
folly, and to fall. 3. No patching up of peace
possible, though everybody be bent ou it.—
4. The theatre of war soon to lie transferred to
the interior of Europe, and the contest gener
AFFAIRS IN CUBA.— The Havana correspon
dent of the National ItiteUigenctr says the
regular troops have nearly all been withdrawn
from tlie city of Havana, aud it? protection is
in the hands of volunteers and a safeguard
force, which is composed of tlie soldiers who
have been discharged from the army in Cuba
mi expiration of service for several years past.
This makes a very efficient force inapjtcarauce,
and the men have mostly had the advantage
of active field service—probably better troops
than those which have been thrown into the
country and forwarded upon tiie coast to pro
tect weak points, and to be ready for concentra
tion * wherever there may be necessity. He
thinks, however, that the indisoriminatinjr
arming of negroes has been an unwise measure,
and which, if continued to the extent proposed
will result in serious evil for Cuba, that Concha,
or any one succeediutr him will not be aide to
cure or remove. Tiie consequences are already
perceptible in the streets and in families.
