'areal Rojoioing, by Rev. R. W. Ruvraa.
127-The sermon of Rev. B. W. IIviTER,
deliVered on Thanksgiving day, will be read
by his many admirers and. friends with great
pleasure. It is one or the ablest and best of
that popular young divine.
When we supported the Kansas-Nebraska
bill in 1864, we did so upon the solemn under
standing that cc the will of the majority should
prevail in - Kansas." The repeal of the Mis
send Compromise (which asserted Congres
sional rade) excited the fanatics of the free
States to madness, and 'the idea which called
for that repeal, that the people should
control in Kansas and Nebraska, was scouted
and' denied. In the whole history of
American legislation, no measure 'was
snore distinctly based upon this indestructible_
principle, than the Kansas-Nebraska -bill.
And yet - , notwithstanding that the will of the
majority was declared to b 6 the main purpose
of this Kansas and Nebraska bill, and the re
moval of the whole question-of slavery from
the hails of Congress a -leading essential
to z its enactment into :8; law, the northern
factionists arrayed against it, a most for-,
addable antagoniarm and, from 'lB5l to 1866,
the Deraocracy_in the free States were do.'
feated upon nearly every trial. When Mr.
lincgasext was elected, however, the Admin
istration of Gen. Purees having made' every
honorable eifort to adjust the difficulty in Kan
sas without success, the Democracy rallied
anew upon,the principle that the majority
Should, rule, and with the advantage, of
a mule illustrious in our annals, the
name of one, who, while always true
to the South, bad not been a party to
the repeal of 'the Missouri Compromise line,
and was known to be in favor of fair play in
Kansas—the Democracy triumphed after a close
and fearful conflict.' The first fair election in
the Territory of Kansas took place on
the 6th of October, 1867. Those which
preceded it, though legal according to the
forms, were' controlled by the minority in
the Territory, but were submitted to, inas
much as no' other alternative was left to those
to them. It is a remarkable
fact, that immediately after this election of
October 5, 1857, the Kansas Constitutional
Convention elected in June of the same year,
and elected, too, by some 2,000 out of 16,000
Voters in the Territory, should have proceeded
deliberately to defy the will of the majority in
all their action. Conscious that of their whole
number there was scarcely a single represen.
tative of thermajority in the Convention, that
sentiment being strongly hostile to the institu
tion of slavery—conscious that the minority
had just been defeated in an election for dale_
gate to Congress and for members of the se
cond Legislature—conscious that the Demo
cratic party had been committed in every State
of the Union in 1866 to the principle that the
will of the majority should prevail—they pro.
ceede,d to construct a Constitution which not'
only defied the majority, bat so fettered that
Majority in reference to the only vital
issue at stake In the Territory as to leave
the votes
,of the people on the subject
of altvery to a set 'of men who could,
and in all probability would, reject those
votes, if they happened to be against that in
stitution. The Democracy of the country are
now called upon 'to endorse a - Constitution
thus framed—to approve the action of this
minority' Convention, in regard to the slavery
question—and failing in this, to accept the dis
grace of being identified with abolitionism and
sectionalism. Such is the hard measure
proffered to the men, who for more than three
long years have patiently submitted to aggres
sions of a minority in the Territory of Kansas,
and who, bearing these aggresslops upon their
shoulders in the great conflict of 1856, never
theless carried their flag in triumph, upon the
distinct assurance,' Made by all their organs to
the people, that the will of the majority should
prevail in that Territory.
We deem this recapitulation all the more
necessary, because recent Berg-official de
apatches from Washington announce that the
Bon. B. J. WALann, Governor of the Terri
tory of IcansaS, hag arrived at the federal'eapi
tal, and, in his interview with the President of
the United States; has taken position against
the minority Calhoun Constitution. The oppo
nents of the Deinocratic party are greatly de
lighted at the alleged prospective difficulty
between the Democratic party of the free
States, and the DemocratiC party of the South
ern States.
We do not know how far these despatches
reflect the opinion of Governor' WAmtzu,.
although we feel abundantly certain that he is
resolved to stand by his repeated pledges to
the Whole people of Kansas, that they should
be permitted to vote upon the whole Condi- .
batten Of Kansas ; nor are we enabled to speak
for the A.dralnistration of Mr..l3uouarrAn upon
this question. As yet, there has been no
known authoritative enunciation of his policy
since the adoption of the Calhoun Consti
tution. What we do know, however, is; that
the Democratic party of the free States, so far
as we can ascertain their ; sentiments, are in a
large - degree, inexorably opposed to this Con
stitution. :A recent visit to'onr native county
of ' Laneister, and the adjoining county of
York, and a somewhat free intercourse during
our stay with the people of those counties, as
well as an, intimate knowledge of their senti
ments, induce us to declare that on this sub
ject there is (cutely to be found a dissenting
opinion. We are, well aware of tho difficulties
which Burl idifference as UNIX referred to may
precipitate, upon the country, and we are
desirous now, as we have alwaya been,
to promote the union of the Democratic
party'," and to extinguish every attempt at
sectionalism, whether that attempt originates
in the South, or whether it originates in the
North. -We trust that the two great states
men now in consultation at the federal capital,
may agree upon
. a censervativtl ground in,
this issue ; and we have no doubt that if the
spirit which has animated them during their
long-career, and especially while they corn
batted for the principles of the Constitution
In the Senate of the United States, and
while they .. stood shoulder to shoulder in the
Cabinet of Ants K. Pomt, that they will
not fail to reconcile the elements which aro
now threatening to dash tho hopes of the,
people, at the veryanoment when the Kansas
problem seemed about to be settled by the
application of the indestructible principle, that
the will of the majority shall prevail.

[Correspondence of The Wass.)
Wesintratow, Nov. 27,1857
Reports have been circulating in this city and
elsewhere that governor Walker sustains the sche
dule adopted by the Loompton Constitutional GOTI.
vmation. I ant nowablo to deny the truth of those
reports. governor Walker no more favors the
withholding of the Constitution •framed by that
Convention from a negative vote of the people of
Kansas than does Ttin‘PRESS, or the independent
Democratic press generally.
The principle of self-government, as always math
talned by him and as clearly enunciated and en
forced by the President in his Inaugural, and in
his instruotiohs to Governor Walker, authorizes the
people to vote for or against a State Constitution
entire, and is not confined to the question of slavery,
even It that had been fairly submitted. Conven
tions are the servants and delegates of the people,
and not sovereigns by representation or otherwise.
This is true, as a general , rule, but surely must
prevail, where, as in Kansas, half its counties were
disfranchised, and would not and did not cast a
single vote for delegates to the Convention.
These aro not only the sentiments of Governor
Walker, but they are also the sentiments of Sena
tor Douglas. • Both of these gentlemen are indig•
nant at the unfair proceeding of this Leoompton
Convention. bir. Douglas Censures it, and will
censure it from his place in the Senate, es Using
altogether in opposition to that great principle of
poptdar sovereignty for which he contended in the
passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Dill, and which
was afterward endorsed by the Cincinnati Con

From Washington
Wasnuraverr, Nov. 27.—As far as can be ascer
blued, the Cabinet aro united in sustaining tho
action of the Nouns Constitutional Convention.
Whatever preference there way have been for
submitting the entire Constitution to the people,
it is understood all aro agreed that the mode pro.
posed for the inhabitants to settle the question of
slavery as ono of their own domestic institutions
for themselves, is in accordance both with the let-
ter and spirit of the Hanses.Nobraska act.
Governor Walker has had another long inter
view with the President on the subjeot of Kansas
Affairs, and these, also, to-day occupied a largo
share of cabinet deliberation.
No arrangement has yet been made in regard to
the transmission of the President's message, in ILO
wince of its delivery. It is probable, however.
that the newspaper press will be supplied with
espies, by the moans heretofore adopted.
All the reports of the beads of departments are

The prudent measures adopted by the Go ,
vomit:tent in giving authority to the Bank of Eng
land to relieve the eons mental intereste of the coun
try by a relaxation of the Bank Charter Aet of
1844, has been received throughout the kingdom
with unmistakable marks of approbation, and a
renewal of confidence hes been estaldished. The
supply of gold by the screw steamship Ewr, from
Australia, (duo here next week,) amounting to up
wards of half a million sterling, has added to the
improvement in commercial circles. The accounts
from the United States, received per the Kenge
root have boon as 'satisfactory as could have been
anticipated, and it is believed the next advises will
be still more favorable.
The money Market, it is almost unnecessary to
state, has been extremely tight, and very high
rates for discount demanded. The drain of gold
to the Scotch and Irish banks during the week
has been excessive, and on Wednesday and yeas
terday tbo pressure was heavier at the Bank of
England than at any period in 9.817. The timely
arrival of the Avon, from Australia, with £260,000
in gold, and the supply by the Emen, will have a
good tendency upon the market.
In the manufaeturing districts trade has been
paralysed, but it is hoped that the relief afforded
by the relaxation of the bank act, and the more
favorable tone of the American advice's, will lead
to an early resumption of business. At Man
chester both spinners and manufacturers are free
sellers, but cannot find purchaser's, no reasonable
soncession in price being sufficient to induce husir
near. In the woollen trade the transactions have
been extremely maegro, and operations have been
all but suspended. The accounts from Birming

is reported in pricee.—Eferopean Times.

Friday, Nov. 13.—The 11Tuxtteur publishes the
monthly balance sheet made up to last night. Tho
October return showed a decrease of 4000,000
sterling in the Mock of bullion as compared with
the previous return in September. The return of
lastnight shots% a further decrease during the past
month of 4'1,440,4100. The total coin and bullion

The British force was small, and terribly dispro
portionate to the work to be done. Hardly any
troops but our own woul I have ventured on such
an eosault in such eircurestances The Europeans
arnouoteij to less than 5,000 ; the rest of the
army consisted of notice auxiliaries, whose con
rage was untried and sylesco allegiance was doubt
ful. The city was large, strongly fortified, and
defended by an army three times as OUDIcrDUS AS
the besiegers. To storm the place and to drive
out the enemy, would be difficult, while failure
would be the signal for a general outburst of the
fire which was Smouldering far and wide. Yet the
resolute generals who commanded the British
force did not hesitate. Out of their small force
they could spare, it seems, only a storming party
of 3.500, and wit h this knot of men they attacked
the city, which contained within its walls the chief
arsenal of Upper India.
With what devoted courage our men mug have
fought may be judged from the greatness and rie.
pidity of their success. The details of the conflict
we have yet to learn, but within a few days they
will no doubt be given to the world in the de
spatches of the General and the private letters of
the officers. Enough, however, for the moment is
the fact that the headquarters of the mutiny ara
in our possession, and that the enemy is flying iii
various directions, followed by Moveable columns
of the victorious army. The unhappy old man
whom the rebels placed on rho throne of Delhi sur
rendered to a detachment of cavalry, commanded
by Captain Hodson Ills two sons, and the grand
son, were , also captured, and very properly shot at

The Residency is situated at the extremity of
the large and straggling town. This accounts for
the fact that the whole place was not occupied at
once. On the•2sth the ltesidenoy was relieved, on
the 28th the enemy's entrenchments were stormed,
and on the 20th a largo part of the city was taken.
The loss on our side amounted to 450 or 500 mon.
To the tong list of fallen commanders we must add

opshuhur; but the Government despatch speaks of
two columns having been sent out, ono or which
reached the neighborhood of Allyghur and the
other of Muttra by the 20th of September. It is
possible, therefore, that the whole body of rebels
have. taken a southerly or south easterly route, and
that General Graathed`s column had consequently
changed its direetions-nnleas, indeed, three
tinot fort ellt were sent out. The rest must be briefly
told. Nona Sahib was said to he near Ronda en

well-affected Rajahs immediately to suppress the
movement. It is a good sign that the Madras
troops have attacked and defeated the mutinous

and his won suffered death. It was thought that
perhaps tho Madras troops might be infected with
the mutinous spirit, but this event seems to dispel
any such apprehensions. The Punjab in quiet, or
eopt that some robber tribes have been infesting a
Ran of the country. Seindo is also quiet, but the
frontier requires watebing, and General Jacob has
been sentup accordingly.
The Bombay presidency is only slightly dis
turbed; the Madras presidency', the Southern
Mahratta States, and the Deccan are all that
could be wished. On this whole, we may imngra
tulate the country on the danger being past.
There Is, no doubt, still much to do, for 100,000
armed men cannot be disposed of in a month, or
oven in six menthe. But we have no longer before
us the apparition of a beetile empire, capital, and
army. All that remain is a not of ieolated bands,
ravaging the country without purpose, system, or
hope of meccas. To rout and exterminate this
ruffian rabble must be the work of the troops who
have by this time poured Into the country, but who
will have found the maip strong th of the mutineers

Livoneeob, Nov. 13, 1857.—1 t is quite impossi
ble to exaggerate the state of depression that has
pervaded every branbh of business during the past
wee k. Th e difficulty experienced by the conunor
cial community in obtaining discounts, even for
the best paper, completely paralyzed the produce
market, and it was impossible to effect sales to any
extent. The total business in cotton for the week
ending last evening, only reached 10,000 bates, at
prices varying from Jul. to lid. decline on the
quotations of last Friday.
nest evening it was announced that the Govern
ment bad suspended the Bank Charter, enabling
her to issue notes beyond her limit by the Act,
with the restriction that her rate of discount du
ring such suspension is not to be under ton per
This alone° created a bettor feeling, and all mar
kets have improved, prices have become steady,
and cotton has been saleable at an advance of
per lb. on the low forced sales, placing our quota
lions at id. per lb. below the currency of lest week.
The sales to-day aro estimated at 6,000 bales, at
the following prices: Middling Orleans, lid.; mid

Deetrtichee Fire to Franklin Place—Bunt
ing of the Athenian Buibting.—Abont four
o'clock, on Thursday morning, an alarm of fire was
mowed by the discovery of flames honing from a
third-story window at the northern end of the large
strueture on the west slide of Franklin Platte, above
Chestnut street, known as the Athenian Building.
The alarm was very promptly given, anti an effort
was made to got a sithestreant from an engine
directly upon the fire by taking the hose up through
the building. Before this could be accompliehed
the flames had attained Ruch headway that the
firemen were compelled to beat a retreat and direct
their efforts from the street.
The Athenian funding, which was four stories
in height, wee occupied in the three upper stories
by Wagner k 'McGuigan, lithographers, and by Mr.
William F. Goddess, printer. The fire spread with
great rapidity through the combustible material in
the structure, and the flames soon raged with per.
feet fury, pouring out of every window and sending
aloft showers of !Turks, anti flakes, and masses of
burning paper, which wore carried far to the east
ward by the wind.

boarders peeked their trunks hastily, end many
of them conveyed them away to places of safety.
By extraordinary exertions the flames were sub

any damage more serious than burning out the
upper tier of the milldam, and 'damaging the
A general alarm was struck upon the State l'onso
bell, and the firemen hurried to the spot from all
parts of the city, but they could accomplish very
little. Franklin Place being very idrrow, and the
walls of the burning building being in danger of
falling'out, the firemen could not operate from the
front, and there Was no deceits from the rear. Side
streams were thrown on the building from the
street, at the northern end southern extremities of
the building, but even this scanty supply of water
was:much of It, blown back by the wind, add, as
a consequence, the entire building, with all its

To Americana, perhaps the most important fea
ture of the late news from England, is the rapid
decline le the price of cotton. The total cessation
of the usual demand for this great staple in Eng
land for speculative purposes, and the falling off in
its consumption abroad, necessarily produced by
the unsettled state of the great markets for menu.
feetures,erould be sufficient, of themselves, to greatly
reduce the price of the raw material ; and, when
to this is added the competition of the New Eng
land manufaeturers, who stopped their mills and
sent their supply of thirty thousand bales of cotton
abroad for sate, it is not unlikely that the price of
cotton in England will touch a lower figure than at
any time in a Boron years.

tho rapid deterioration of the machinery Itself.
The fall in the price of cotton will necessarily
cause heavy losses upon the stocks of manufac

The general impression of sound thinkers upon
the extension of privileges granted to the bank is,
that, though it may bring temporary relief, the
measure will, in the end, prove disastrous to the
English commercial and manufacturing interests.
The restriction which has been removed from the

the sum of X 14,000.000 secured by the Govern
