ty. Cynthia had always called him " Prank" before, but consciousness made her now reject the old familiarity. •' Oh ! that is somebody very wonderful.— Everybody is afraid to speak to her. She has written a book. Frank seems to be right down flirting with her, doesn't he ? I declare, now he always wanted somebody out of the way. Nobody here was good enough for Frank. Have you heard he has been offered a profes sorship and is going away ? He is going to live in the same place she does. I shouldn't wonder at his courting her—should you ?" " I don't carc," said Cynthia in her heart, " 1 don't care. Oh ! yes I do. I care that he should have weighed me in the balauces so calmly this afternoon, nnd found nie so un worthy that he takes back the love he has of fered me. Has he judged mo very cruelly t or am I quite unworthy of his attachment ? Oh ! think that this morning I had it in my power to be happy all my life, w hen I refused him ! Oh 1 how can any one compare any oth er man with him ! And he loved me only to day—and now, to-night, his reason says I atn not good enough to be his wife ; and he is afraid of being unhappy with me. Indeed, I am not good enough—bnt I would try to bt>." " If you would snip it.'' It was Frank Hntidy's voice, J-he caught the word, and looked up eagerly. Fr ink saw her, and stopped embarrassed. He wa? hold ing up a toru fold iu the dress of his partner iu blue. "If I knew where to find n needle and thread," said the authoress, with a half look at the bridesmaid. "I know. Let me sew it up for you," said Cynthia. Her pride had left her. She felt humbled to the dust. It would be a relief to do some thing for this woman— better than herself— whom Frank preferred to her. " Let me do it," said she earnestly. " Mr. Handy, I shall depend upon your escort." Frank nandy bowed, and the girls went to gether into a bed-room. Escort?—was it his escort to the city ? He hail told her 1 he should go there. Cyn thia sewed up the hole in the blue dress, very sadly and quietly. The animation faded from the young author ess's face, as she looked down on Cynthia's quivering lip, and saw a big tear fall upon her sewing. She had heard some one say she had been the victim of false hopes raised by Seth Taggart, and had in her heart despised her for it; but she felt as if the sad, heart-bro ken love bestowed on him endorsed him as far better than he looked. It was a woe, however, to which she could not openlv allude. But, as Cynthiu set the last stitch in her dress, she stooped down and kissed her. Every sorrow has its lesson," she said, •' as every weed has a drop of liouey in its cop. Blessed are they that suck that drop, and store it for good uses." She had gone, and Cynthia was left alone. Yes, she had much to learn. This night's ex perience had taught her that her reign was over, and her career of bellchood run. She, who was not good enough to keep a good man's heart when she had won it, would set herself to her new task of self improvement.—• She would have her dear old father's love, and live at home, and little children too, should learu to love her. Ai.d then, perhaps, some day, when they both grew old, Frank Handy might, perhaps, see that he had judged her hastily, and not be glad as he was now, that she had rejected him. At least, every im provement in her would be due to his influence, though unseen ; and so, even in her lonely life, he would not be altogether dissociated from her. She sat in the dark, with her hands clasped tightly over her bnrning forehead. She heard voices in the passage. The par ty was breaking up. People were beginning to go. Oh S why had she staid alone so long ! Perhaps during that hour Frank might have changed bis mind. She had deprived herself of the opportunity. She started up and hurried out amongst the the Company. They were all getting their cloaks and shawls on. Frank, in his great coat, was standing impatiently at the house door " Please to tell her that my buggv has come up first," he said to some one, as Cynthia presented herself in the passage. " I am ready," said the lady in blue, pre senting herself. Frank raised his hat to the company, and took her on his arm. "Shut up that door," said someliody, "and don't let the night air into the house."" So the door closed with ajar that went to Cyuthia's very heart. She turned aside and tried to help some of the girls find their shawls and hoods, " Every lassie had her laddie," Cynthia had no one to take her home. She asked Tommy Chase to walk home with her, and he said lie would as soon as he had had some more cake and some more supper. Cynthia went back into the empty parlour, and sat down by an open window looking on the yard. She hid her face in her hands. All sorts of thought went singing through her brain ; but the one that presented itself oftenest was an humble resolution that she would try to be such a woman as Frank Handy wisely might have loved. There was a stir among the vines that drap ped the window frame. She did not look up. It was the wind. She hoard it sigh. She felt its warm breath near her cheek—warmer, sure ly, than the night wiud. She lifted her head quickly. '* Snip !" said Frank's voice at her side. It trembled ; anil he trembled as he stood with a great hope and n great fear contending in his breast. llis self-possession was all gone.— The struggle had unnerved him. " Oh ! Snap !" cried Cynthia suddenly.— And then, droopii.g her head, crowned with the hop bells, lower and lower—more and more humbly, till it rested on the window sill —she said, in a broken voice, " I know I am not worthy, Frank ; but you must teach me." A FrncnoxATE I\iiAXd.—A delegation of the Chiefs from the Pawnee Italians held an interview with the Secretary of the Interior at \V ashington.a few days since. Upon leaving, two of the chiefs,after shaking hands embraced and kissed both the Secretary and Commis sioner of Indian Affairs, ami a portion of their war paint besmeared the face of the latter, giv ing it a grotesque effect. tST Ellis Hummel, of Mifflin eounty, for merly near New Berlin, met with a serious if not fatal accident, by the fall of a tree upon him in the wooJs where he was cutting. The gang of counterfeiters caught in >Villiams|K)rt, it is stated were engaged to try to rob a rich old farmer named Lusk, at Lin den, on the night they were arrested. XXXVTH CONGRESS. FIRST SESSION. WASHINGTON, Wednesday, Jan. 27, 1358. SENATE. —In the Senate, Wednesday, Mr. WILSON introduced a resolution, which refer red to the Committee TI Military Affairs, au thorizing a Commission to inquire into the con dition of affairs in Utah before force is resort ed to. The joint resolutions of the Legis'a ture of Ohio, relative to Kansas affairs, were presented by Mr. PUGH, and after some debate were tabled and ordered to be printed. A substitute for the Pacific Railroad bill was presented from the minority of the Select Committee on the subject. The Army bill was then considered, and a substitute provid ing for five new regiments, according to the recommendation of the Secretary of War, was rejected, 38 to 8. The debate on the bill took a somewhat wide range, and was not conclud ed. HOUSE. —In the House a resolution was adopte I, calling on the President for informa tion relative to the origin of the Utah expedi tion. After a rambling debate in Committee of the Whole on the Printing Deficiency bill, a partial report was made by the Committee on Elections iu reference to the Ohio contest ed-election case, declaring it inexpedient to al low Mr. CAMPBELL more time to take testimo ny. By resolution of the House, Mr. YAL LKNDIGHAM is admitted to the floor and allow ed the privilege of speuking during the pen dency of his claim. THCRSDAY. Jan. 28, 1848. • SENATE. —In the Senate, Thursday, Mr. FOOT, of \ crinont, introduced a proposition as an amendment, or rather addition, to Mr. DA VIS' Pacific Railroad bill, providing for two routes, northern and southern. A bill was re ported from the Select Committee on the Bank ing System of the District of Columbia, pro hibiting the issue of notes of a less denomina tion than SSO iu the District by corporations located without its limits. The Committee deem it inexpediei t to authorize the establish ment of banks of issue in the District. The Committee on Commerce were instructed to inquire into the expediency of abolishing the Lighthouse Board. The bill providing for an increase of the Army was taken up and debat ed, with slight intermission, until the adjourn ment. The special order of the day was the resolution providing for the presentation of a medal to Commodore PAULDING, but after a brief consideration the matter was postponed until the 9th of February. No question was taken on the Army bill. HOUSE. —The House immediately on assem bling went into Committee of the Whole on the Printing Deficiency bill, but after an un successful effort to enforce the rule confining members to the subject under consideration, the Kansas question became paramouut, aud was debated until the adjournment. News from Kansas. ST. LOUS, Thursday, Jan. 28,1858. The Kansas correspondent of the Democrat says that the Territorial Legislature have de cided not to give way for the Topeka Govern ment, but to proceed to the enactment of an entire code of laws to supersede all laws pass-1 ed prior to the special session of the Lcgisla- j ture. A protest to Congress against the Coustitu tion lias Ieen published. COLIN CI.ARK.SOX, with the Lecompton Con stitution, left here this morning for Washing ton. CALHOUN, LECOMPTE and PATE will prob ably reach here to-morrow. [From the St. Lonia Democrat, Jan. 21 ] From several gentlemen who reached the Planters' house last night, direct from Kan sas, having left Leavenworth City on the 20th we have later news from the Territory. Our informant traveled from West port to Booneville, in company with a messenger bear ing dispatches from General CAI.HOLN to the Cabinet at Washington. The dispatches were telegraphed from Pooneville. The tenor of these, as derived from the messenger, is that General CALHOUN has thrown out the votes re turned to Governor DEWES, alleging, as a reason for so doing, that such returns were not made in accordance with the Lecompton schedule, and should have been delivered to him. and therefore are illegal and void. This high-handed measure gives the Pro-Slavery party a majority of one in the Council, and a majority of two in the Lower House ; besides, elects the Pro-Slavery State ticket throughout. The Free-State men in all the Territory are much excited about the matter, and say ifC'AL HOUN persists in rejecting snch returns, and if Congress admits Kansas under the Lecompton Constitution, they will resist to the bitter end. We learn also from the gentlemen mentioned above, that the notorious JACK HENDERSON is still in custody at Lawrence, more scured than hurt. We also learn from Mr. If. C. HEMINGWAY, who left Lawrence on the 2()th, that every thing was (juiet in that section. One man, the father if SHOULER, who shot the Shawnee Indian, had been arrested. Tite election of the free State ticket had been couccdcd— Legislature and all Mi. STOVER, one of the Pro-Slavery mem bers elect of the Legislature, had been shot in the stage while on his way from Wyandott to Leavenworth. The affair is thus related STOVER was in the stage, when a horseman rode up and called his name ; on his answer ing, the person fired at him, the shot taking effect in his face, and, as is supposed, mortally wounding him. The affair created much ex citement, while the party firing made his es cape. ST. LOUIS, Monday, Feb. 1. Messrs. CALHOUN, CATO, CARR, HENDERSON, and several others, arrived here yesterday from Kansas, en route for Washington. These gen tlemen state that the Democratic State Ticket is elected, and that the Democrats have a ma jority of one on a joint ballot in the Legisla ture. ° The Lebanon Valley Railway is now complete, and takes much of the travel between llarrisburg and Philadelphia, via Reading.

In the IJjuuse of Representatives at Harris burg, on Thursday, Mr. MILLER, offered the following preamble and resolution. WHEREAS, it is the imperative and indispen sable duty of the government of the United States to secure every inhabitant of Kansas the freeaiul independent expression of his opin ion by his vote ; t > leave the people of the Territory free from all foreign interference, to decide their own destiny for themselves ; and to protect them in the exercise of their right of voting for and against their constitution without the fair expression of the popular will heiug interrupted by frauds or violence—and whereas the organic act under which the Ter ritory of Kansas is now governed, expressly declares its true intent and meaning to be : " to let the people thereof perfectly free to form and regulate their domestic institutions in their own way, subject only to the Consti tution of the United States'' : thereof. J Resolved by the Senate ami House of Rrpre j sentives in General Assembly met, Tliat our Sen ; a tors in Congress he and they are hereby in structed, and our Representatives requested | to resist the admission of Kansas into the j Union as a State until a constitution is rep resented that has been fairly represented to the people, and received the unqualified sanction of a majority of the bona fiue citizens of the territory. The preamble offered bv Mr. MILLER is in the precise language of Mr. Buchanan's in ! structions to Gov. WALKER, upon his assuming the executive office of Kansas. These resolutions were referred to a se lect Committee of three, where they will re main, and not be reported upon. Various motions were offered instructing the Commit tee to report within a stated period, but they were all voted, down, by a strict party vote— the Administration men voting against, and the Republicans for an early report. There is, unquestionably, a majority in the House,sympathizing with DOUGLAS, but they are not the kind of men to take a position of an tagonism towards an Administration which has such great power to reward frieuds and punish enemies. To expect an outspoken, honest, expression of principle from the bogus Democracy of Pennsylvania, is preposterous. They may, privately, express their personal feelings, as becomes honest and independent men, but when the party whip cracks, the leaders wheel into line without the least re gard to principle or consistency. We prophesy that the Democratic State Convention to be held on the 4th of March will unqualifiedly endorse President BUCHANAN and the Lecompton swindle, though we have as little question that three-fourths of the peo ple of the Commonwealth sympathize with FORNEY and DOUGI.AS, in their endeavor to carry out the principles of popular sovereign ty. Tho'leaders are too servile and too pow erful for the masses at the State Convention. The Administration will be endorsed and ap plauded, and the delegates will adjourn cn masse to Washington, and clamor for their re ward from the President. MIRDER TRIAL AT MONTROSE. —At the late term of Court in Susquehanna county, WAL KER GEORGE ARCHER was tried for the murder of his brother WILLIAM ARCHER, on the 20th of November last, by shooting him with a gun. He was found guilty of murder in the second degree, and sentenced by .Judge WII.MOT to 3 years imprisonment iu the Penitentiary. The evidence in this case revealed a most lamentable and shocking state of unbridled passions on the part of the deceased. His father testifies that on the occasion of the shooting, " William (the deceased) began to cuss aud swear," and when lie reproved him, rushed upon liini, and knocked him down, and afterwards W'lliara took down his gun, and said lie would stop his father's career. In a short time he also knocked his mother down, and finally the disgraceful affair ended by his being shot in the back by the diseliurgc of a gun in the hands of his brother George. The manner in which lie was shot was not clearly shown. The defence alleged that the gnn was accidentally discharged, but the probability is that it was intentionally done—a fitting finale to the brutal scene, where a sou knocks down Loth his mother and father. SPECIAI. COURT.— The Special Court held bj Judge WHITE, terminated 011 Thursday last, after a session of ten days. But a single cause was tried, that of SMITH VS KEM.UM, an action of ejectment to recover certain property in Durell township. The cause was conducted with great ability on both sides, and the jury rendered a verdict for plaintiff for 30 acres of land and mill property. The case goes up to the Supreme Court. O. BARRETT, of Ilarrisburg, has been appointed by Gov. PACKER, Superintendent of Printing, and unanimously confirmed by the Senate. STILL LATER FROM ECROPK —The Canada mail-steamer, which left Liverpool on the 10th iust., arrived at Halifax, on Monday moruing. She reports the safety of the Vanderldlt steam ship Ariel, which left Southampton for New- York on the last day of 1801. When a few days at sea, she broke her main shaft, and had to go back to Cork 011 the loth. Some ap prehensions for the safety of the Ariel had been entertained for several days. Apropos of steamship, the Leviathan has been pushed, by hydraulic pressure, almost to the end of her launching-wavs, and was to be left there until the strong spring tides of last month would enable her quietly to float. The Hank of England had still further re duced its rates of interest, from six to five per cent. Money was easier. The cotton and breudstuffs markets continue to show declining prices. Consols were still rising. Neverthe less, some further commercial failures are re ported. The Kinperor of the French had been shot at. He was unhurt, but his hat was perforat ed. Assassination is the worst argument that can be employed against a public man. Later news from India had been received, but the postal comniuncation between Horn bay and Calcutta being interrupted, there is no further intelligence from Cawtipore. DISCHARGE or ECKEL.—JOHN* C. ECKEL, was indicted in conjunction with Mrs. Ccx- NINUHAM, for the murder of HARVEY BIRDELL, has been discharged. His counsel stated that all the circumstances attendant on that trial i had tended to brigh ten the innocence of Mr. j ECKEL. He hoped that the order of this r Court would restore Mr. ECKEL to the eonfi dence of the community, or place him in the same condition—as far as possible—as he stood before the murder had been committed. The order was then entered for a nol. pros, and for the discharge of the recognizances. PITTSBURG IM.FCTION\. —The election for As semblyman to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. BACKHOUSE, came off on Tuesday, and is represented a very tame af fair. There was no euthusiatn or excitement, and but little interest taken in the result.— The vote out will, consequently, be very light, probably but little over half what it was at the Presidential election. In twenty-one dis tricts heard from, Scorr, Republican, leads SALISBURY, Democrat, 214 votes, Mr. ScoTr is probably elected by ">OO majority. XKW YORK LEGISLATURE. —This body has at length succeeded in effecting an organization, after four weeks unsuccessful ballotings.— The plurality rule was adopted, and under it Mr. THOMAS AI.VORD (Democrat,) was elected Speaker, and Mr. DAVID L. WILSON (Ameri can,) Clerk. The minor officers were also elected. The Republicans, it is said, might have had the Speaker if they would have voted for an American Clerk. Advices to the 14th of December have been received from the Utah Expedition. At that time the troops were engaged in making their quarters as comfortable as possible for the Winter, and their health was good. The great want was salt. Captain MARCY, who had been dispatched to Xew Mexico for a sup ply, had not been heard from, but a quantity sent from Fort Laramie was on the wav. fiiC" Mr. Thomas Alibone, late President of the Bank of Pennsylvania, has published a lengthy letter in the Philadelphia pa|>ers, de fending himself from the charge brought against him ; denying that he was ever en gaged in speculations during the term of his bauk Presidency ; stating that lie went abroad solely on account of the state of his health.— The fact that he was the largest stockholder in the Bank is almost sufficient to lead one to believe that he acted iu good faith and for the best interests of the institution. fteyThe Seventh Lecture of the Course was delivered on Monday evening last by Hon. DAVID WILMOT, on " Ancient and Modern Phil osophy? It is hardly necessary to say that this attractive and interesting subject was handled with great ability, and the lecturer showed a great familiarity with his subject. The resignation of Mr. MARKET has been sent to the House, and a resolution adopt ed calling upon the Canal Commissioners, for his rcjiort. A bill has passed the House, re storing the management of the work to the Canal Commissioners, and appropriating $50,- 000 for rebuilding the Horse Race dam. T. O. of O. F. CELEBRATION. —The Odd Follows of the Eastern part of the County, hold a celebration at Lcllaysville, on the 22d inst. Hon. E. S. SWEET, will deliver a lecture. Permission has been granted to appear in re galia. 4®°-The Grand Jury of Northumberland county recommended a county loan of SIOO to the overseers of the poor of Mt. Carrael. (For the Reporter.) MR. GOODRICH : —ln addition to those al ready mentioned in your paper of the 21st as being in Forty Fort at the massacre of 1778, there is EUNICE SATTERI.EE, of Smithficld, now 81 years old, whose father, John Peircc, was killed in that battle. The day after the bat tle her mother saw an Indian dressed in her husband's clothes. She like many others travelled on foot, carrying Eunice in her arms, to the Delaware river, where Geueral, then Captain Simon Spalding, famished a Conti nental wagon to take them to Connecticut. J L V j®"The Kansas question iu Congress is ap proaching its cuhninatiou. CI.ARKSON, the special messenger from Gen. CALHOUN, having [ the Lecomptou Constitution iu his care, to gether with the official canvass of the votes cast on the 2lst of December, when that in strument was first submitted to the people o r the Territory, has arrived iu Washington, and delivered his charge to the President, who it is thought, wonld send it in Monday, accom panied by the Message, which has been some time prepared. This will undoubtedly lead to the most exciting debate of the session, and the proceedings of Cougress will be looked for with intense iutercst. Mr. STANTON, late Secretary of Kansas Ter ritory has issued an address to the people of the United States iu vindication of his conduct while occupying that position and that of Act ing-Governor. He sets forth at length the condition of affairs at the time and justifies his course in assembling the Legislature, for which act he was removed, on the score of im perative necessity. hose carriage purchased in Phila delphia by Lin ta Hose Co., arrived this week, and was on Tuesday " shown up" to our citi zens. fit is universally pronounced to be a very beautiful affair. The prevailing color is blue, releived by gold, and it is embellished with several flue paintings. The Concert of the Towanda Brass Band, given to aid in paying for the carriage, was in every way successful, both as to attendance and enjoyment of the rich musical treat given. ftajT The fire at Mouroctou, which we brief ly announced, did not prove as disastrus as was feared. It was confined to DOCGHF.KTY'S Hotel, from which most of the furniture was saved. An insurance of $2200 will nearly co ver the loss. How the fire originated is uot certainly known, but it is supposed from a light which was kept burning all night in a sick room. teaf An adjourned meeting of the Towanda Lyceum will be held on Saturday evening of this week. An essay will be delivered by B. S. IlrssEi.r., Esq., ; Subject, " Currency and Commerce"—after which the following resolu tion will be discussed : Resolved, That women should be educated in all the sciences that men are. flgr We are requested by the Towanda Brass Band to return their thanks for the libe ral patronage bestowed upon them at their Concert at Troy ; and also for the many cour tesies and attentions they received at the hands of the citizens of the place. LIAR Hos. WM. A. PORTER has been ap pointed Judge of the Supreme Court, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Hon. JOHN C. KNOX. [From the Washington Union.] Official Appeal " to Every True Demo crat, North and South—ln and out of Congress—ln the United States." The Government is now in the bands of the Democrats. Its President, its Cabinet, its Congress are Democratic, and have been made so by the voice and vote of the individual Democrats throughout the nation. A common responsibility, therefore, rests on all Democrats, as well in office as out of office, to quell these rebellions , and to restore law and order to both Kansas and I tah. There is no escape from this responsibility on the part of the Democrats whether they are in public or private life. The President placed in power by the Demo cratic party says to Congress, quell the rebell ion in Utah by sending there a powerful aud efficient army to subdue BRIGHAM YOUNG and his leading coadjutors, and bring them to a just and legal punishment. As to Kansas he says that after having gone through many tribulations and trials while in the midst, of re bellion, and all the impediments which LANE and ROBINSON, the secret aid societies, and the Black Republicans everywhere, have created, she at last stands at the door of Congress with a Constitution admitted on oil hands to be eminently " Republican"—formed by legal con vention ; admitted by Walker, and Stan ton, aud Douglas, ami almost everybody else, (but Jim Lane,) to have been a legal Conven tion—a Constitution voted for, as it relates to the only disputed subject embraced in it, by every bona fide inhabitant who had a mind or wish to vote—a Constitution which' can be moulded and shaped after admission into the Union just as the people from time to time may determine. Kansas, standing at the 'door of Congress with such a Constitution as this : the President advises, should be admitted into Union on terms of equality irith the other Stales l of the Union. MR. BI CHAN AV is a Democrat ; BE was pi t at tlie head of the nation and the party byDein ocruts. As President of the United States, he lias been bra veil in Utah and Kansas by James Lane and Brigham Young, lie has met their treason with great forbearance and kindness ; but the time has come now when, in the dis charge of his imperative duty, he is obliged to to appeal against them to Congress and the coun try. What Democrat that represented, or was present at Cincinatti when ho was nomi nated ; what Democrat in all this broad land that voted for him in his election, can now draw off from him and go over and stand by the side of Lane ? Yet, to vote against Mr. Buchanan's recommendation to let Kansas in to the Union—is it not to join and vote with Lane and his associates, whose perpetual cry is " Vote against her P' "Keep her out " Keep her out There is no unsoundness in this argument. The Democrats are right on this issue, or the Republicans arc right ; James Buchanan is right, or James Lane is right. And no good Democrat will catch at nice and unnecessary distinctions in order to eurol himself, in or out of Congress, on the side of Lane, the traitor and rebel. There is not (we believe) One Dem ocratic district, north or south, in this Union, when history shall duly record the great facts in this case, that will support, by Democratic sanction, the exclusion of Kausas on the Le compton Constitution. What would l>c the fate of any Democrat, in or out of Congress, who should ref vote supplies or soldiers io crush t| (e rebellion in Utah ? The Black K.J enemies of Democracy and her Preside Brigham Vouug, and put their opposjj l the gronnd of undying hatred to and all its ways ; but kmc can any y ; ,' < hold up his head and look one moment' Conrention at Cicninatti, and the. platform which it ordained, and then r,-- firm by Jam-s Buchanan ? We re[x u no Democrat iu these days of obvious ffmJ of law and order in Utah and in in many other quarters, will fail (i n our merit) to stand firm and unflin bin® /.' principles—firm and unflinching to the p dent of his choice—firm ami unflinching\ National Democratic Party, which i,' amid the loosening ties of aocial order, and only hope of our country.
