PEEL UPON PALMERSTON The ineaslon of democratic principles into the effete and aristocratic Institutions of the old European sovereignties, though gradual; has been 'sufficiently apparent. Steam, after all, is a great revolutionary agent. It enables American citizens to run from New York to Liverpool in ten or twelve days—to fly along the 200 miles to London in five hours—to rush from London to Paris between breakfast at 0, and dinner at 7 o'clock—to traverse Europe with equal rapidity, and every whore to exhibit the go-ahead action of free and independent men, who choose their Chief Magistrate from among themselves, and acknowledge only ono su preme majesty all over their groat land, name ly the Majesty of the Constitution, protected by the Law. Now and then, (and the instances are not so rare as to bo wondered at), we find the American free-and-easy manner of speaking Of public men and public things, followed by British politicians. There was a time when it would have boon a sort of petty treason against the dignity of Parliament for one Member of the House of Commons to speak his mind about and against another—and he a Cabinet Minister. Had he dose so, the cry of " Fair Play" would have been raised, and con ventional people, turning up the whites of their virtuous eyes, would have said "How dreadful ! to attack a man behind his back, when you might have met him face to face on the floor of the House of Commons, and received a reply within flve minutes after you made the attack." True enough; but a thing of this sort is not fair play. Sir ROBERT PEHL, for example, at a public dinner in his own bo rough, at Tamwortb, has been freely comment ing upon the conduct or misconduct, the cha racter or want of character, of that jauntiest of ail public men, HENRI' VISCIOUHT PALMERSTON. As there were newspaper reporters to take down his speech, it really was delivered to the Tatuworth voters, but generally to the world, and particularly to PALMERSTON himself. Not a tithe of such a speech would lie have been allowed to utter in Parliament. Before he had reached the terminus of his sixth sentence, he would either have been coughed down by some of the Ministerial myrmidons, or have-had his words drowned in cries of " Order, order" from some of the ancient fat headed legislators who, themselves unable to utter two consecutive sentences clearly thought and intelligibly expressed, have a cruel 'delight in watching for holes in other persons' coats, in order to enlarge them. The House of Commons, assuredly, in the t ime of PREL 1173tc,1 Pansmawrox, the Ortinfflf would have been non-suited. In tte Court of Com men Sense, the result woind have been, and Is, wholly different. Seated on the Trenaury benches, with his Working majority to cheer him through, Peanuerwee would have pooh poohed PEEL. At Ta.mworth, where Pram is paramount, the result would he otherwise. Some of our modem maybe curious to know what manner of man this Sir ROBERT PEEL may be. Ho is the eldest son of the late Sir Itcperm the man who granted Catholic Eman eipaelon and Free Trade—wholly against his ' , Wit. He is now about thirty-flue years old, r.id,had some experience, in the diplomatic line, from 1844 to 1850, when he succeeded to his father's title and vast wealth. At the same time, he was elected M. P. for Tam worth, (a borough chiefly owned by himself,) which his father had represented for twenty years. 'lle- is brotberdn-law to thares°l4 DrikiksarkiVidlinitenOtitil" nected with the highest nobility of England. He is a smart, clever, garrulous young man, utterly fearless, and so uncertain a politician that, however he may speak on a subject, no one is sure of him until he votes. Eccentric, dashing, and hasty, the general impression is that ho has got what the Scotch call " a boo In his bonnet." At all events, be is odd, clever, and capricious. Some cause, never ascertained by the public, induced ParmEasrox, nearly three years ago, to make this young man a junior Lord of the Admiralty—his principal qualification for such a place probably was the fact of having nar rowly escaped shipwreck in the Gulf of Spoz• zia, a short time previous. As a member of the Administration, ho was muzzled, to a certain extent, and committed no oratorical escapade, for some time. Last year, being a man of vast wealth, able to spare the expense, ho was sent to Moscow as secretary of Lord GRAN viitm's special mission to attend the corona tion of the Czar. Me spent his money freely, but, some time after his return, being called upon to speak at a public dinner, astonished his auditors by giving a ludicrous account of hie adventures in Russia, ridiculed the Prince nx LIONE, laughed at Admiral Name, accused the Count DE Moßxr of being a swindling speculator on the Bourse at Paris, and wound up by plainly intimating that Rus sia, where he had to •pay $1,500 for ono dinner for himself and two servants, was an extended den of robbery. Of course, such declarations as these, pub lished not only in England, but all over Eu- rope, created a groat sensation. They led, wo believe, to Sir ROBERT'S resignation of office, On the principle of a well-bred dog voluntarily quitting a house by the door, when he saw preparations on foot for kicking him out of the window. It may be presumed that Sir ROBERT PEEL has some cause for dissatisfaction with Lord PAIABRSTON. If so, ho works It out thus, Ho commented in a facetious speech, sur charged with bile, upon PALmEnsrox's political short-comings. First, as respects the revolt in India, which the Administration, for a long time, instated was only "one of the periodical emirates which occasionally excite, the people of India." Now, said PEEL, this so-called mints that had taken place had shaken the Anglo-Indian empire from ono and to the other, and in throe months it coat the lives of more ofticors than perished during a similar period in the hardest months of the Crimean war. No loss than two hundred and seventy officers bed either been massacred or had died, or had fallen in the field—two hundred and seventy in throe months. That was certainly a greater proportionate lose than during the severest trials in the Crimea. After the mid denness of the blow, the Government resolved to send 40,000 armed men to India, and never in the history of the world did any country send 40,000 men and maintain them ten thou sand miles away from her shores. But hero, adds Pen, comes blame to the Government. ct They sent these troops by way of the Cape, and surely every one knew who had common sense that the best route to take would have been across Egypt. They had the means, and yet they did not adopt it." A few battalions went from England to Calcutta, via Malta and Egypt, in seven weeks; the time occupied by the passage round the Cape of Good Hope would bo 130 for sailing vessels, and 75 to 85 days for steamers. None of the troops thus sent round had reached in time to share in the assault on Delhi or the relief of Lucknow. This is a strong complaint. More followed. Peer, declared that Lord PALMERSTON was humbugging the people—that the corporation of London was composed of a set of fawning sycophants—that the Duke of Cambridge had not earned the honors that have been heaped upon him—and that the speeches delivered during the recess have, for the most port, been slavish and slavering effusions on the Prime Minister. On one of these speeches, PEEL delivered the following amusing comment: "Another gentleman addressed his constituents at a county meeting. Ho is a very warm suppor ter of the Government, and he _said he , was not a friend of Lord Palmerston's oik but h'e was then. Be said, 'Lord Palmerston, lemon, is ono of the greatest men in England ; be gets up at six every morning, and writes till twelve—(ail this was In the papers)—l know it, he said; oh, I know it. Ile goes out shooting—more of scums for sm. else than amusement, know It; and while shoot log he receives the Government despatches, takes off his hat, steps aside, and writes the answers while Polite is reeking up partridges. (Loud laugh- PHILADELPHIA, TV F :,DAY, DECEMBER 8, 1857. ter.) He writes till twelve at night, Ana then,Aeas to bed.' " ( Applause) , Further, PEE; said that it was PAisiit- TON'S Way to stand by those whom he 10;9- pointed, and that, therefore, he had probed' Lord CANNING, the Incapable Viceroy of ;in dict. Why, PEEL asked, a why had not RA I 4- LOOK, NEILL, and NicitoLsou 'boon pratO? Look what the British troops had done, 11Itd Lord CANNING anything to do with the' tore of Cawnporo, tho storming of Delhl4or the relief of Lucknow ?" Lastly—and thir , was perhaps the. unkit4est cut of any, seeing that his Royal niglit4ss bad not greatly distinguished himself injho Crimea, though ho is cousin to Queen Q. alA—ho laughed at the folly of the city oti r n don giving, and the Duke of Cambridgilre sumptuously receiving, a sword, on the bigf which was engraved the baton of Field-hfli a rank ho has not yet received, though:W*lllf conferred upon Prince Amnia at tho naati4 age of—twenty years Altogether, there can be no doubt illießfr .

Of course, then, this same Paris is the centre, the cradle, of continuous plots and oonspiraoles—boot len all, sine they have effected no more than the restoration of "the Empire."

We do not pretend to follow M. do la Bride through ble book, but may quote some of his da• guorreotypes. Bare is LEDIIII-ROLLIN. M. Ledru-Rollin is generally thought to bo a furious revolutionist, ferocious and indomitable, while, in fact, ho is merely a man of sanguine tem perament, a lover of noise, fame, and enjoyment. lle is a miniature edition of the irregular and Ott tenons Mirabeau. Tho Reform one day, wanting a standard-bearor, and especially seine one to ad vance the needful, set him up aschlof of the Repub. Bean party; and as Madam Lodru-Rollin, an on-, Rimini:tie Lit& woman, who had married her hus band from political inclination, urged him forward , to Assume a brilliant position, ho yielded to the double pressure as well as to his own impuises,and rushed at all hazards into a revolutionary earner. The history of a man stumbling headlong down a mountain's aide towards unknown preeiplomiwas his from that moment. It was in vain that basest I a piteous look amidst the darkness and dangers that surrounded hint, for the impulse bad boon giv en, and flounder on ho must, abutting his eyes in order not to see, and uttering loud cries to drawn his fears. In the Chamber of Deputies he endeavored to make himself terrible, roaring and panting in the moat rarified atmosphere of domooratio opinion. The auditor would listen to him for a moment with curiosity, and then shrug his shoulders. Ho gave forth emphatic harangues. of which the press nay. or published two words, always excepting theißr form, which, it was well understood, received a consideration for singing his ptalsos. But the adulterated incense of the hungry journal blinded tho eyes of the poor orator; every swing of tho cen sor hit him a stunning blow. Ile sold his place as advocate at the Court of Cessation in order to do. fray the expenses of his artificially acquired glory. The proceeds of the sale wore soon swallowed up in all sorts of political gulfs. Ile then had recourse to speculations in land' but these proved a failure, and consumed the rest of his fortune. To avoid en trenching upon tho fortune of his wife, ho gave his signature to the usurers and gambled in the strata, making use for this purpose of the servioes of the I respectable M. Orandmenil. It was on account of this irregular mode of life that his rival, lli. Mar -1 rant, let fly a well-barbed arrow at bins, the arrow being sent back to the Marquis of the Republic, tipt with poison, and thus tapping the gall-blad ders of both of these magnanimous democrats. The National attacked him not only as a spoon later overwhelmed with debts, but ever as a patrl otic notability; chuckling with malicious glee over the airs of the Capita n, and the empty rhetoric of the Tribune. With the men of the Nation:lf, this great men was nothing leas than a mere intriguer, seeking for his own personal advantage, to ruin a rival newspaper. Hero are companion sketches : H. PROUDIION. 1,1. Prouditon is a man of thirty-five yea roof age, of a robust constitution, and with a large bead firmly sot upon his shoulders ; his prevailing trait being a strange sort of avidity, consisting of belt and half of the energies of the bull and the greedi ness of the ostrich. His greedinota, however , counts in the devouring of adversaries' arguteeets and ob j ections . Unpollehed, negligent in his dress, and laboring as he goes along with a heavy, awk ward gait, his gaze Is always peering through a pair of lunettes, and wandering off in search of paradoxes and economic humbugs. Venus herself might brush by him without hie eeeing her. The true riches of this wretched world, such as women, works of art, and magnificence of all kinds, he values about as much as he does the heavy pingo of the poor M. Pierre Leroux.

LOUIS BLANC The person of 24. Louie Blew 001:141bli/3 of Iwo ergo black oyes, oalrooulouely undo:loured by • pair of thick lips, and fixed upon a body about the height of an hostfor's boot. It is an eternal source of despair with this groat man to find that hisglory is shut up in an envelope not more than four feet eight inches in height. lie has, however, the most refined manners, the most aristocratic distinction, and knows very well bow to put on the insipid smile of dealers in court holy-water. On witness ing his gentle elegance, mixed always with a ear tain' degree of personality, one suspects a character not exactly symmetrical, and that within that lit tle body there lies a tittle man. A workingman, on hearing him make a speech onoo, said to a com rade "That'd a 'malicious little fellow. that And I am of the workingman's opinion : N. Louis Blanc has never shown anything else but malice. Sines the production of his lliotory of Test Years, which gave him a pretty high stand in radicalism, he has carefully abstained from becoming connect ed with any coterie, well knowing that the on tranoe into ono would close the doors against him of all the others. The men of the Reform die pleased him by their vulgarity, and those of the National, by their aristocratic bourgeois preten sions; but, whenever one of his volumes was to make Its appearanee, he had a very affectionate shake of the hand for both. The tactics of this lit tie man Were to raise himself by means of the pa pets, but withoutoonnivance with them. Ills plan .was to dazzle the upper classes by his brilliant works; and the lower classes by appearances of communism; and his object was, anything or every thing, so that he was not confounded among the crowd. As M. do Lamartine prevented M. Victor Hugo at that time from sleeping, so M. Thiers gave wakeful nights to M. Louis Blanc; he waspassion atelyjeateus of the historical, oratorical, and states man-like abilities of that celebrated conservative. Like the foolish serpent in the fable, ho gnawed away upon the steel of the bourgeoisie, merely be cense M. Thieve was the personifieation of that capital force of :modern society. The intercoms() of M. Louis Blunt with the people having been lludted to a few intervtews with the more learned of the workingmen, who collect upon him with COO gratulation! for his historical and social doctrines, and his reserve with regard to the papers having kept him removed from an active part in intrigues, he could not well have, nor indeed had he, any 'fi red influence in the events of February. After perusing this book, one reflection is awakened by it—What have all the secret plot. tinge really done for France? Were Louis XVIII. and CharleaX. better for that country than Napo leon? Was Louis Philippe an improvement on the Bourbons? Is Louis Napoleon a bettor man for Franco than the poor Citizen-Kt ng ? We think not, though we have never fallen into the common practice of underrating his undoubted ability—of declaring, in effect, that because he indulged in some of the exoeSses which youth, Motion, and wealth exposed him to, he is not, in middle age, a well-conducted, moral man. Looking beyond the present, we see the insecurity of civil liberty in France, and shrink from contemplating what lies, half-veiled and half-revealed, in the shadowy ['atm. Franco—or rather Faris—has an unhappy apti tude for plots and conspiracies, and secret moie ties.. They elle hoe Ho natural yv °loth oft pre country, and therefore. while France is afflicted by them, they take no root in the United States. How could they?—with a groat Constitution, Which secures to every citizen the fullest liberty of thought, speech, and action. How could they!— frith a free press, to give wings to unfettered speech, No! Secret Societies form no element of our political system. They are alien to it. There May be circumstances, there may arise occasions, Where roonarehloal or oligarchical rule is demi nant;when Secret Societies may bo not only al lowable, but useful and praiseworthy. But in this free Republic of ours, such organizations are un necessary, unwarranted, and 'unwarrantable, and it id the duty of good citizens to eschew them. Even in France, as Monsieur de la Ilodde shows, they have boon next to useless—so far as the resto ration of free and liberal institutions is involved. THE BOARD OF TRADE ON BANKING AND CURRENCY. Emroa or The Pamis I have not for along time met with anything quite eo amusing as the proceedings of the Board of Trade on Mon day evening last, filling nearly two columns of your paper of Tuesday. The crude and queer notions and ideas oa the subject of banking *lttatrreney put forth , on that occasion were ',44ooldediy rich; , Well, it takes all sorts of pee -1 4 10 , =U FOOT* and tho s qtolons" of the , of:fittettiettilMojnseent ofethe, "genus r:rtori *Nig _ b r Ottli!-: .1 • " 104 44tia 4int 'llll% • 4, it would be entertained by that comervalare body." The proposition I allude to is con tained in the following passages of your report of the proceedings. "Mr. E. M. Davis said, ho did not believe that the old system could bo patched up so that it would work. • • • • Among the first things we should do would be something like this, although ho did not expect much support in a conservative body like this. Abolish the usury laws,' • • charter no new banks —reeharter no old ones; • • • allow all banking of discount and deposit to be as free as any other ordinary trading by individuals or combined efforts as partners." This, I re peat, was the only common-senso proposition made at the meeting referred to, and there is much in it. There is no earthly reason why credit, in the shape of notes, drafts, bills of ex change, should not, like everything else, be bought and sold at its fair market value, and it is so bought and sold every day in spite of the usury laws. Tho only practical effect of which is, to put the parties to an additional charge of a quarter of one per cent. for the employment of a broker, in order to evade them, and giving to a certain class, some of them unscrupulous and without souls, the entire monopoly of the ‘, street "—excluding from competition with them another class of men with large means, who will not, from conscientious motives, evade the law. A repeal of the usury laws would doubtless greatly extend and increase private banking and bring out mein competition. It is notorious that oven now, in spite of the monopolizing features and special privileges of our chartered banks, and without attempting to manufacture currency, hosts of private bankers are spring ing up in every direction ; nay, I have heard it repeatedly asserted, that there is now more straight-forward real legitimate banking busi ness done In the streets of our principal cities every day, than there is in all the banks; and how much snore dependable has it been throughout the panic. It has saved thousands from the inevitable ruin that would have befal len them with no other dependence than on our rotten and wretchedly managed incorporated banks. If the Board of Trade would seriously take up Mr. Evans's proposition, digest and examine it in nil its various points and bearings, they might accomplish some good, but all their other schemes and nonsense will end in smoke. [Tim above has been in typo for several days, but, owing to a press of matter, omitted until now,) CITY POLlCE—DEcoinra [Reported for The Prom) UNEXPECTED SETTLE I IENT. Mrs. Norah MC- Givens is a lively widow of Live-and-forty, fist enough to take the eye of the most voluptuous Mussulman, and possessed of a complexion the rich bloom of which rivals that of the best French brandy. This charming lady keeps a house of refreshment In South Front street, near the navy-yard. At her establishment you may have an elegant dinner, or supper, for a York shilling, end no extra charge for liquor. How ever, boar in mind that she does a cash business, and has never given a " ha'pworth " of credit to any man or mortal, except Larry O'Brady, who, we regret to say, scarcely deserved that especial mark of the widow's fever, if no may judge from the account of him given by the lady herself. "He has been acing mo up for six months," said Mrs. MeGivens, "taking no less than two males at ivy table every day of his life, and making a baste of himself by drinking up all my sperits, and whin I ax'd him to pay me like a man, he curb's] and swore like a tiger or a catamount, and ripp'd and tore like a hurricane, or any other wild quadruped, doing me enough damage to hang him six times over, if there's any law or justice for an unprotected fainalo that's doing her best for a dissent living." "What damage did he do, Mrs. McGiven "' "Damage is U v lie broke the very heart of me, besides my best lookingglass; two splendid glass decanters. ; Jim Mctionegul's hoed, and four stone china dinner-plates." Tho author of all this mischief, Larry O'Brady, is a fuse-looking fellow, fully six foot high and well proportioned. Its listened to the widow's charges with a placid smile, and when asked for his defence, said . . . "oh! it's a mighty May tnatter to tot all this to rights." "Don't be too sure of that, Mr. °Trudy," said the magistrate, with some severity. " bet any iintioinan a treat," answered O'Braely, "that I'll straighten it all up in loss than five minutes by the State-house 'sleek." Then, turning to the window, be gave her a melt ing glance, which wined to penotrato to her soul, " Sure, a Mil can do no more than make ripara tion," said he, " and I'll' do nil that for ye wid out any compulsion. I broke your dishes, your looking-glass, your bottles, and your bar-keeper's head, just as you say.

Of ours° this generous and noble offer of settle ment propitiated the angry widow on the spot. Her complaint was withdrawn, and she and the contrite O'Brady left tho Mee, arm-in-arm, to gether. W. SEVERE FIGHTS WITH THE INDIANS. I Interesting News from New Mexico—Colonel Benuevilles late Expedition. The Santa Fe Gazette has particulars of the re cent expedition of Colonel Bonneville against the Apeches. The number of savages killed was 40. The depot of the expedition was established °alio west bank of the Gila river, nearly west from the "Adobe Wall," on the Rio Grande, and about twelve miles northwest from the San Lucien Springs. The northern column was -under com mend of Colonel Loring ; the southern column was under command of Colonel Miles. In the canon of San Vicente, Colonel Loring's command struck a mr t li a ng h l o : u 2,0 (which through ohu she ep ghhad and e : n no d a v seert party t os o a f bny i v n the d k i c ans ite . In diana,) and to the valley of the Safe river, they, on the 24th, name fresh upon the trails ascending a slight elevation between two ridges. Indians and sheep wore discovered in the canon, and the ap proach of the troops was a complete surprise. Or, seeing them they commenced flight. Permit was made, and eight Indian men killed—among them the celebrated chief, Outhillo Negro—end one squaw accidentally. Five squaws and five chil dren were captured. On the 13th of June Colonel Miles's command started to the Coyotero country. They marched south and southwest from the depot. On the Ist came to extensive ruins, supposed to be of Aztec origin. There wore also evidences that the Coye toren had farmed there in former years. The ruins seemed to indicate that a population of 2,000 or 3,000 must at one time have resided there— probably two hundred years heel' On the 24th the spies discovered an Indian camp a short dis tance ahead. Captain Ewell, with twenty infantry and forty mounted dragoons, with all the officers under his command, except Lieutenant Edson, en deavored to surround the camp. The guidessod spies captured a woman, but the command vise discovered. In this march Captain Eweil'e com pany suffered much, having to sustain Itself by killing some of the Indian pontes they had cap tured. On the 27th Captain Evroll's wing, In ad vance, proceeded towards the Rio Gila—the Pueblo spies in advance. About three o'clock of that day the spies reported Indians about, and told Captain Ewell to "goon with his people." They proceeded but a short distance when they came upon the Apache clamp. The battle-field extended for a mile on both sides of the Gila, and covered with a thick under growth. The battle commenced at 43 o'clock, and lasted till sundown. There were forty warriors engaged in the conflict, two of whoa only are blown to hare escaped. There were but twenty four found dead on the field. Two women were killed—one while fighting with a bow and arrow. There were twenty-four women and children taken prisoners. The wounded of the troops were Lieutenants Davis and Steen, and live or six of the soldiers and one Pueblo Indian. Besides the havoc among this party of Indians, tgo troops destroyed about Biz hundred norm of corn, and captured a large number of sheep, horses, &o. Lieut. Whipple's account of a scout to the head. waters of the Gila is very interesting. Re de scribes the country as rough generally, with en occasional fertile valley, and mentions the appear. anon of a bear, a large number of eagles and tur keys, the latter being so unaccustomed to the sight of taste that when shot at they would not fly. Fish wore caught In great abundance out of the river. Bit march was exceedingly difficult, and many of his men, including himself, were poisoned by a poisonous plant. Ile captured in this scout about 250 sheep from the Indians. Ho was accom• palsied by Limit Steen. Captain Ewell gives a very interesting report of a scout under his command, to the Cheichebue mountains. After giving an account of a skirmish with some adieux, in which some of them were wounded and probably killed, he Bays : "I reached the (lila in a valley, the lower end of which was out of sight, but evidently twenty.five or thirty miles long, and from throe to five wide The soil is rich and lies well for irrigation. There was enough arable land passed through to support twenty thousand people, surrounded by fine prairie for grazing. Broken pottery was everywhere so plenty that it amounts to a puszle. A great many ruins, some of large villages or pueblos, are to be seen, and at points the marks of whet must once have been a noble acequia, cut through such hard, strong banks, that it is difficult to believe no iron was used in Its construotion. The Pim° Indians say those were the homes of their ancestors." This expedition has resulted most successfully, not only in bringing to notice this heretofore un explored country, but in teaching the Apaches a most salutary lesson. The prisoners and stock captured were taken to Fort Thorn, Shortly after the arrival of the command there, three of the Coyotero Apaches mime into the fort, to negotiate for their women and children, who were held in captivity.

Is Congress Bound to Receive a Territory Into the Union as a State ender a 413011Slittl. lion which has not been Ratified by the People This question is thus ably argued and con clusively settled by the Chicago Times : 4 , In August, ISM, Congress passed an act to enable the people of Wisconsin to form a Consti tution and State Government, with a view to ad mission into the Union. On the 16th of December, in that year, a State Convention adopted a State Constitution, and forwarded the document to Con gress, asking for admission as a State. This Con stitution was not xubinitteel to the people, and though the slavery question was not mooted at all, thorn were other domestic institutions' which the people desired to form for themselves. "The Territory was divided in opinion; the Convention sought to block the business upon cer tain local matters, just as the Kansas Convention has done with respect to banks and railroads, capital of the State, ko. " Congress refused to force that Constitution on the people, but by an not entitled an act for the, admission of the State of Wisconsin into the Union,' approved March 3, IW, by Mr Polk, BENT TEE CONSTITUTION BACK FOR POPULAR RA TIFICATION. ,‘ We give the preamble and first and fourth amanita' of tho not: ‘, 1V eas, The people of the Territory of Wis consin did, on the sixteenth day of December, 184.6, by is Convention of delegate=, nailed and assembled for that purpose, form for themselves a Constitution and State Government, which said Constitution is republican; and said Convention having askod the admission of said Territory into tho Union as a State, on an equal footing with the original States: "'Beit entietcel, An., That the State of Wiscon sin be, and the same is hereby, declared to be ono of the United States of America, and is horeby ad mitted into the Union on an equal footing with the original States, in all respects whatever. • "Szertoir I. And Le it lin ther enacted, That it is made and declared to ho a fundamental con dition of the admission of the mid State of IVis. consin into the Union, that the Constitution adopt ed at Madison on the sixteenth day of December, in the year ono thousand eight hundred and forty-six, shall be assented to by the qualified electors, in the manner and at times prewarib cd In the ninth motion of the twentieth ar tiolo of said Constitution. And as soon as such assent shall ho given, the President of the United States shall announce the same by proclamation; and therefrom, and without any (nether proceed ings on the part of Congress, the admission of said State of Wisconsin into the Union, on an equal footing in all rospeots whatever with the original States, shall ho considered complete."' "At tho election upon the ratification of this Constitution (says the Ti»tts) the people turned out and rejected the instrument. Ifere was a di rect recognition by Congress of the right of the people to vote for or against their Constitution; it was a direct refusal by Congress to force upon the people a Constitution which they had nut had an opportunity of passing upon by a vote at the polls. The question of elavery was not involved in this Wisconsin case. But Congress thought that no form of State flovernmont ought to bo he posodi upon the people without their express consent. "Another Convention rens held in Wisconsin; an other Constitution adopted in February, ISIS; the pooplo voted upon and ratified it, and by act ap. proved May 21), 1818, Wisconsin was admitted into the Union. "litre is gesso directly in point with the Kansas ease. We hope Congress will act as promptly and as rigorously with the latter as it did with our neighboring State. The people of Karma aro as free, and as capable of self-government, and 49 much entitled to it, as the good people of Wiscon sin. Lot them have It."

Her Majesty and the Prince Consort are stated by Mr. Butler to have boon much interested in this remarkable specimen of the dug, his gigantic proportions and symmetrical bonuty, with which are combined dauntless coursgo and perfect dociiit,y. Several photographs were taken of this fine animal in the ralaoo-yard, by Mr. Bambritlgo, photographer to the Prince Consort; and a eensation was produced in the Royal Barracks, at Eton College, and throughout the town of Windsor, on the appear ante of this extraordinary visitor.

Another Destructive Fire—,-Great Loss of Properto—Narroy, Escape of Valuable Built lugs—Fell Details.—la TUE Posse of yesterday we recorded a succession of destructive Area whle occurred in different parts of the city during Sun day morning, the aggregate loss from which was very considerable. The firemen were constantly engaged in the discharge of their voluntary but arduous duties from three o'clock In the morning until daylight yesterday, and worked with a hearty good will and energy that are deserving of all commendation. '• Misfortunes never come singly." The exemplification of this trite • adage was certainly witnessed during Sunday and yes terday morning. Between ten and eleven o'clock on Sunday night a frame coal shed in the Nine. teenth bard, belonging to Manes* and Neaffte, was set on fire and destroyed, loss $6OO. An ad joining brick dwelling, belonging to Mr. George Hough, was damaged to the amount of $3OO. ha insurance in either ease. As the companies were returning from this fire, about one o'clock yesterday morning, a fire was disco vered in the extensive forwarding house of Davis & Steel, formerly Bingham & Co., No. 810 Market street, above Eighth. The building ex tended through from Market street to Grape, and the fire, when discovered, was about midway of the first floor. The flames ran with greet rapidity through the forwarding house, and communicated to a quantity of combustible goods stored in it. Among these geode were seventy or eighty barrels of whiskey, which, taking fire, burned with uncon trollable fury. A general alarm was strnek upon the State Mouse bell, and the firemen hastened to the spot from all parts of the city, but they did. not succeed in chocking the spread of the flames until they bad extended to and destroyed other valuable property. 'The members of the °erasable Engine Company brought the first apparatus to the ground; and rendered moat elliolent service. Ire gave in yesterday's FRESS as full an ac count of the progress of this fire as the lateness of the hour would allow. The full details, es we subsequently ascertained them ate es follows: The burning depot was two stories high on Grape street, and three stories on Market street, with wide fronts upon • both streets. The entire first floor was appropriated to the use of the forwarding house, while on Market street, the upper denim wore occupied by other parties. Benjamin Rogers, steel plate printer, occupied the around story, and 11. Holler, career, occupied the third story. The building, with all its contents, was entirely de stroyed. Adjoining the depot on Market street, on the eastward, was the large four-storied building, occupied upon the first Boor by Mr. John P. Sloan's clothing store, on the second floor by H. L. Fryer, manufacturer of fringes, &a. and upon the third end fourth Boors by Barrett e s binned and bowling saloon and gymnasium. The Are soon communicated to the upper part of this build ing, and it WAS destroyed from the second story ap . ward. Mr. bloan's stock was got out with little or no I damage, and Mr. Fryer's property, in the 'Mond story, was mostly destroyed. Mr. Barrett saved nothing from his apartments but a set of pistols. Next. kelow this building is the large five.storted structifre, owned by Mr. Cuthbert, and °deny/led I by a number of tenants, which was slightly damaged in the upper part. Some of the occu pants sustained some little loss (tom water. Im mediately wort of the freight depot is the Alle gheny House, a large tire-storied buildino occu pied as a_botel by Mr. C. I. Bush. This building took fire in the rear, and It was only saved with great difficulty. The window frames in the back end of the building were mostly burned out. There were about one hundred boarders in this house, and the utmost consternation was caused among them by the fire. Nearly everything movable was carried out of the hetet, end the fur niture, /to., was broken, and otherwise damaged. Mr. Bush declares that many of the goals wore stolen. The freight depot of Livingston & Co. is imme diately west of the premises occupied by Davit & Steel This establishment had an outlet on Market street, under the Allegheny House. The goods in tho depot of Livingston & Co. sustained some damage from water, and their building was slight ly burned. Grape Court, small thoroughfare running north from Grape *tree, contains a row of seven foursto riod dwellings, which are thickly populated by trror families. The rear of these dwelling* was exposed to the full fury of the dames in Davis & Steel's depot. The roofs took dre and were mostly destroyed. The tenants removed their effects as hastily as they could, and much distress was occa sioned among them. , Twenty or thirty families were thrown Into the street from these dwellings, and all sustained more or less loss by the hasty re moval of their goods. There were our long eight-wheeled cars in the depot of Darla .t Steel. Some of them had some on from the West late on Saturday night, and others were ready to start to Harrisburg 10-day. These oars were all piled withgoods but the Ann have no knowledge whatever of their contents or their value, , Noe 888,, Vihiels was almost totally. deate4ed, OlnkVad-3 41 4 Ttl!rnd , tis_.....6.l.a Bttiltsideell, ' tippa • es b tli He had an insurance of $l,OOO upon Ma goods. - The Allegheny Rouse is owned by Mr: John Ridgway. 'The damage to it is about one thou sand dollars. Mr. Bush, the occupant, estimates his loss at five thousand dollars, All insured. The houses on Grape court are owned by Mr. Townsend Sharplese. The loss upon them is covered by insurance. The aggregate amount of the loss by the fire will probably reach 530.000 to ¢10,000; but any estimate at this time is necessa rily conjectural. The origin of the fire is not known. Messrs. Davis and Steel attributed it to incendiarism; but the place appeared to be se curely closed when the fire first made its appear ance. Fire Detective Blackburn was very promptly at the scene of the fire, and made a thorough examination of the premises, with a view to ascertain the origin of the fire. The firemen worked manfully for several hours, and streams of water were thrown upon the smoulde ring rains of the depot daring the entire forenoon of yesterday. We regret to state that two of the Fourteouth ward policemen rendered themselves very obnoxious to numerous firemen and eitisene by their overbearing and insolent conduct. In one case they arrested a young man at the corner of Eighth and Market streets, on a false charge of drunken and disorderly conduct, and took him to Spring Garden Hall, probably with a view of col lecting half of the Imposed fine to divide between them. They Mated en excuse for their conduct, that they were ordered to make the arrest by the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department. Tbat official, Mr. 8. P. Fearen, emphatically denies the truth of this statement. The officers of the Sixth Police District, under sergean ts smith and Thomas, preserved the best possible order in the vicinity of the fire, and wore instrumental in saving some errprop y Pilfering was extensively carried on at the fire. Three fellows wore seen in the street in the not of dividing the contents of a pocket-book among themselves. They were arrested and taken to the lock-up. The pocket-book proved to belong to a boarder at the Allegheny House. The offenders gave the names of Michael Rey, Arthur Henry, and Daniel Henry. They were committed by Al derman Eneu to answer. The Girard College.—Ono of the greatest boasts of our city is the number of its institutions of learning, and foremost among these may be ranked the Girard College. It cannot be doubted that the yearly and continued diffusion, through the various occupations of trade and mechanical pursuits, of youthltrained in this institution In moral and industrial habits, end possessing tho ac quirements derived from a careful, practical edu cation, must exerolso a sensible and valuable in fluence, enlarging itself more and more widely from year teyear. It may, indeed, be regarded as a peculiar ad vantage of this institution, that the details of ar rangements may be modified and improved by the lights of experience. While the comprehensive mind and clear intelligence of Stephen Girard es tablished the general plan with perfect precision: while he has so marked the outlines of his system of enlightened benevolence as to prevent either misunderstanding or deviation ; he had yet left to those to whom he has entrusted its practical management and supervision, the opportunity, as indeed be has imposed upon them the duty, of ac commodating its subordinate provisions to such changes as may take place, front time to time, in the number of the peptise, in the enlarged means of maintaining and instructing them, in the in clinations which they may severally exhibit, in the varying habits of trade anti industrial ocoupa tions. and in the modifications that science and improvement :hay make In the different classes of pursuits into which he designs that the objecta of his bounty shall to fitted to enter A number of needed improvements have recent. ly been made in the main^lego building. A solid partition wall has bet, —acted across one of the largo rooms on the first floor—that situated at the northwest angle of the main edifice. By this it is divided into two commodious apartments, each twenty-five feet in width by fifty feel in length, affording space amply sufficient, In one. for the instruction of the pupils of the Principal Department in Natural Philosophy, and in the other, for the Chemical Lectures. As these studies have been hitherto conducted in the neatens out building, this change has the additional advan tage of removing an inconventenoe, by no means inconsiderable, which has been beretoftwo occa sioned by the distant separation of particular dames, at certain hours, from the places in which their other studies are conducted A similar alteration has been made in the two largo northern rooms on the second floor. By this, they are now divided into four apartments, each et which is also twenty-five feet in width by fir:greet i n length, thus conveniently extending the present accommodations for instruction in the primary de partments, and also increasing its efficiency. which has been heretofore, in some degree, impaired by the necessity of placing together, in the same room, so large a number of the younger pupils, and, in some instances, more than a single instructor. In making these neeessary changes in the main edifice, the occasion has been taken to endeavor to obviate the serious defects, in heating and ventila ting the apartmente, which have at times led to apPrehensions that the health of the pupils might be impaired. The walla and ceilings of massive masonry, and the marble floors, have occasioned at times a condensation of moisture, and produced a chilliness of ntmosphoro against which it has been impossible, by any precautions, always to guard. Alterations hove therefore boon made in the posi tion and construction of a portion of the furnaces. Some of the flues have been so enlarged as to form a wide shaft, into which a heated pipe has been introduced. so as to rarify the air, and cause its rapid change and ascent. Connections with this have been arranged in some of the lower rooms, and the walls have been covered with thicker hangings and the floors with matting. The four large and beautiful rooms, en the third story, have been heretofore almost useless, from the want of any external opening which might counteract heat arising in summer from their proximity to the roof. It has been found quite practicable to open a communication from them with the Ventilating shaft, and this has been done experimentally in one of them, and changes }are been made in the construction of the doors, which will themes the admission and circulation of ironceie - • 00impones ts ts boons phi phase Ise Is cam Me 0,034.1 Mal • ITV/ wri ouiLlstkla 84 1 4 is'ilarlsba kit 11 . tun or the ' velai.
