hopes that ho uttlillettye :Abe' matter in

tire disposal of it, uninfluented bY,arl eifireg'
don of opinion by,idm..l. - 41is a ; question alone
for Congress, and when theleiompton Constitu
tion comes before that body we cannot doubt its
fate. It will bo rejected—thrown out with indig
nation and worn. The great principle of " popu
lar sovereignty'.' has not only been attempted to bo
abridged, but to be actually violated, and that at
the hands of professed, friends in Kansas, to whom
it was - . intrusted. je our issue—week before
last—we stated that although the people of
llahstirhad been denied the right of voting
for or against tho,Constitation under whioh
they werele live; yet that the shivery question
littd been fully, and;.. as we supposed, fairly sub
'milted to' them. But, - Since then, we have re
eared the Constitution, and find that oven that
'question -has' not,b4ien so submitted. But even if
it Were, that is no apoidgy . or OiCUSO for violating
the prinoiple'ef
,theßanscts.blebreeka Ad. Popu
lar. sovereignty inibraoes 'more than the mere
questionef slavery. It was not Intended to con
fine ft to that alone.
Trifles are said to make up the sum of human
enjoyment or human misery. Even such an
InidgniffiCaitt matter as sealing-wax may hive
A decided influence on a man's happiness. We
are told the Postmaster of San Francisco has
given notice that many, letters arrive at his
• office from, the Atlantic States via Panama,
which ate found adhering so closely together
by sealing-was, that ft is , impossible to separate
them without mutilating, and in many cases
entirely destroying, the addresses.
It has been suggested that, , letters for Cali
fornia and other parts of the Pacific coast,
via the Isthmus of Panama, should not be
sealed with wax. If the - adhesive stuff on our
envelopes (simply a solution of gum-arabic)
be the only protection, letter-writers lean on a
reed indeed, for, on being damped or steamed
such envelopes can readily be opened,without,
any trace of the perfidy, and can as ea.sily be
re-closed. Sealing-wax, in addition to the
gummed edger! , of the envelope, is the only
security, There iongli as been manufactured
biEngland a pirticular sealing-wait, specially,
I used for, letters for India; which has the, ad
vantage of not being softened by ordinary
heat, certainty not by any atmosplierie heat.
Such a boon as this sealing-wax. 'would be
appreciated, 'no doubt, by—the ladies. Nor
by them aline, inft by-au who confide' secrets
fo .ftmisaitti, or 411t,eilged,and ;communicate
coft nothings by
,of the post-office.

Ma. Manarialm's 13Exam.—This evening, the
hist of Mr': Marshall's season at the Walnut Street
Theatre, he will take a benefit. The performances
include,,wilt , Sperry's comedy of " Extremes"
(with songs 'and dances), and the second act of
‘, The Enchantress," with the cymbal dance.
Among the performers who will assist on this own
sion;may be mentioned, Miss Etchings. Mrs. John
Sefton, Mrs. Silsbee, Mr. Etchings, Mr. Chapman,
Mr. Showell, and Mr. Daly. As Mr. Marshall has
fought the theatrical battle, this season, with bet
hope than fortune—mainly, indeed, for the sake
of the many persons who depend on the theatre
for their support—he deserves, and we do hope be
may receive, what will indeed be a substantial
benefit'to him. Every seat in the Walnut Street
Theatre ought to bo filled on this occasion. Mr.
Marshall has been liberal on all oceasions, publio
or private, on which the gratuitous use of his
Theatre could he benefistal, and the publio ought
to acknowledge the obligation, now, in the most
sttbstanttal manner. , We expect to see a crowded
and brilliant house to-nlght.
• 'ARCH STREW? TnEATB3.—Mr. 0. S. Leland's

'" Speed the Plough," with " The Carpenter of
Rouen" es an afterpiece, Mr. Thayer is each an
established and deserved favorite, that the mere
annonneeteent of hie appeal to his friends, the
Dahlia, will certainly draw a great number of them
around him.
ISITIONAL TnEATEE.—There is to bo en after

'country, after completing her musical education in
Italy, and his appeared, with marked success,
before large' and initial audiences in New York,
Washington, and Baltimore, intends giving a con

Signor-Morello, baritone, and Mr. Harry Sander
son, the pianist, this being his first public appear-
Vice In this, bii native city. It is known that Miss
May fp highly connected in Washington, and that
not any pecuniary Neoesnity, but high aspirations
for tame, with a naturally fine musical organiza
tion, has induced her to aim at the difficult dis
tinetioned becoming a world-famous prima donna.

, The concert given at the Academy of Idusic, last
evening, for the benefit of the St. John's Orphan
Asylum, was most ,successful—the horse being
crowded in every part. The Misses Heron, who
kindly volunteered ,their services, wore the prin.
'iftpOttreetion. These young ladies, who are
widely, known as talented vocalists, and deservedly
popitlar in this their native city, appeared for the
-first time on the boards of the Academy, and were
Most enthusiastically greeted. They possess voices
,of tesepeasing power and sweetness, and the manner
in which they eaguitted themselves on this occasion
gave additional assurance that they will both ere
long ocettO r Prominent and enviable positions in .
,mueleal world. ~We, particUlarly noticed the
rendition of "A foree',p 111 W! from Traviata, by
Miss Agnes Heron, which was exceedingly fine, as
WAS , also the drinking song (Libiamo) from the
f 4 nue 'Plieri;which, else sang in an encore.
Mis 4 Fanny fferen sang a covetina from the
Opera of Baffo with, great effect, and was ,enthu
siestically encored- when eho sang the drinking
song from Lucretia Borgia. This song completely
carried" the audience; who evinced their gratifica:
tion in loud bursts of aPplense. These young
ladles merit all the commendation we have heard
tiestswed on them. We understand they intend
giiing a - ,Concert shortly at the Musical Fund
A terrible tragedy was enacted at Ncatsville,
Adair county, Indiana, recently. It appears, that.
a. r ßAdmmukeesteralweuter, at4leativille, had
oloioatal - report against a party of men,ono of
whom waste young was, named Kr, Whetter, the
eon of.!a highly respectabloeitioni, that they were
counterfeiters. 2holeard of this, Ond laid as plan
totiecoy Redmond front his home and murder him.
Mr, W horter divulged this to. Redmond. Oa Fri
day the party made an- , .attack on Redmond cad
his friends in Nentsville, among whom was Red
mond's. eon and Mr..Whorter. Nearly fifty shots
were Axed- The elder Redmond was that through
the heart and instantly killed. Mr. Whorter was
.shot in the book of the heed, and it it thought
cannot recover. The affair has created a tremen
dous excitement.
Wmi Allmon ,was tried recently in Beaufort
county, N. 0., for bigam,y; he *having married a
wife in that State When he had another living In
Efampton, Va. This ease 'excited agood deal of
'sympathy, owing to certain mitigating einem
stances ; yet be was convicted, sentenced to re
ceive thirty-nine lashes, to be imprisoned one day,
and appearance at
on his personal recognizance for
hit appearance at the next court, then to be branded
on the left cheek with the letter B in presence of
the court, and to receive smother thirty-nine
lathes. Et it hardly to ho supposed that he will
appear at the next court.

Important Intelligence from , Utah—Report of
Colonel Johnston to General Scott—A Pro
tracted War Inevitable.
Mummr" December 11,1857
The following important report from Utah PM
received here to-day :
Ileausgraitnine Ann' UTAU. SOU TIT PASS,
en route TO SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 18, 1857.
DEAn Bin : Accompanying this communication
I received your two letters from Colonel ALEXAX.
non, the commander at present of the Main leidy
of the army of Utah. In his letter of Bth of Oc
tober, Colonel ALEXANDER questions, by the hesi
tation with which he assumes his right to
exercise fully all the duties of commander,
but hie authority to exercise them without
restriction is clearly granted by the 62d arti-
Me of war. Moreover, general orders, No. 12,
head quarters of the army, specially direct who
shall command in the absence of General Han-
Noy, and suMoiently explains the. objects of the
expedition; but no question for the decision of the
commander, under his ordinary military duties
could arise before the arrival Of Governor COR
IUM Misapprehending the, authority with which
he is invested by law and the orders of the Gene
ralain-ebief, that portion 'of his letter respecting
command would be, if ho wore correct In hie view
of hie own position, a merited reflection upon his
superiors, and it is therefore that I have advert
ed to it.
Pursuing hie design indicated in his letter of
October Bth, he, you will /earn from his letter of
October 14th, has advanced up Ham's Fork of
Green river thirty-five' miles. above the atoning,
and there directs the movements to be made by his
own immediate command, and the troops in his
from erroneous sup-
rear to fuse ajenotion - ,
positionswould be wholly impracticable.
First, ho evidently. believes that Colonel SMITH,
°stetting tberousainder of the supply trains, in
all alMht nine, including three settler's trains, is
advancing on the lilt:Mei 'load, or out olf, with the
foreinamettin Conoral HARNEY'S order of Au
gust 18th, andef coursohne not received the oeun,
termand of that order. Ito assumes that the oom
„Maud hi the roar is capable of a more rapid
movement than hie own, anti therefore, after wait
ing one day at the point indicated, will resume his
'march.' In this also Ito would have been distil).
pointed, as the trains in the roar, suffering from
fatigue and scarcity of sustenance, and without
horses, which the teams with him have had, could
not overtake him.'
'These r are the facto, and if known by Colonel
At,exopprt, his disposition, as determined in his
letter of:October Bth, wou!4 have been wholly dif
ferent. ,Col. Sutra is here at this clamp with 50
memof his regiment. I overtook him the day be
fore yesterday (the 16th inst.) about twenty miles
east of this, and have added my escort, ilfteen
dismounted, dragoons, to his force. Lieutenant
Snout, in command of a squadron of dragoons,
and fifty of the 10th Infantry—a force of about two
hundred men-an:my be oefeeted hero in three or
four days. He is aware of the necessity of prompt
neee, and lam sure will lose no time. Mr. Wit
matt lifeatcam, superintendent South Pass wagon
road, with a patriotism highly creditable to him,
placed et the disposition of the Government as
many employees ee will yolunteer. He thinks
fifty or sixty will organize, and I have weed to
accept their sortie°, and have them mustered in
I for 3or 6 Months, as they may select, and he has
also leadmed 15 good teams of mules and wagons
which I have also accepted, and directed them to bo
received Ph- common delivery. Feersupply trains
oontairdne pleating, of which the troops now in
advance, Zam informed, begin to need, ordnance,
medical, and subsistence stores, are still in ,the
rear, and may be ogpectod in two or three
days. The ' storm of last night may have
destroyed mome of their oxen, and en that
account there may be more delay then I
estimated. Eleven mules of Col. Surrn's train
perished from cold last night. The thermometer
this morning at remise was at sisteen degrees
above zero. The sky is now clear, end the thora
mometer, at one o'clock, stands at thirlysfour de
grees, and the small quantity of snow which foil
during the night is melting, so the animals
can graze fully. lem thus minute that the resents
for the order transmitted to Colonel ALEXANDER
yesterday morning herewith may be fully com
prehended. His intended movement, if met
with opposition, world have so retarded his
march as to have made it impeeetienble, and
would have probably so entangled hint in tine
midst of'the deep snow of the Fork of the Bear
River, which I understand never fails to tall there,
and usually early in the season, as to place him be
yond the means of extrication. Our most potent
enemy at present is the snow, and constitutes at
present our chief embarrassment.
The mew:went of Colonel ALEXANDER, for the
reasons I hate mentioned, and of which he could
not be apprised, would have separated hind from
supplies indispensable to the comfort and safety of
the army, and deprived him of the assistance of
the force which will hi concentrated here in a few
days, which, however small, being partly of caval
ry, is of vital Importance.
• In ordering Colonel Atm:rta:Den to the mouth
of Fontonollo croak—a position about thirty miles
from his camp, on Ham's Fork—l did co with the
design of making a junction practicable. It is
about seventy miles honee, and he can reach it by
a good road, and without any danger of surprise.
There is there an abundance of grass, and it is the
point from which I can reach the region I
intended Ito occupy this winter, without risking
the loss of our animals. (As soon as the snow falls
auffieientlyon Green river to prevent the burning
of the grass, I will marsh to Henry's Fork, and
occupy that valley during the winter. It is a
commanding pbsition, and accessible two months
earlier for reinforcements and supplies by Che
yenne Paso than any other, and will enable um to
march to Fort -Bridger, and on the most direct
route to Salt Lake, as soon as practioahla in the
prime. At this position, also, Colonel COOKE can
join, which I still entertain the hope ho will be
able to do.
I greatly regret that the impossibility of eon
centrating the troops destined for this service and
their supplies, will prevent a forward movement
before spring. It is now manifest that before the
force can be united the autumn will be too far ad
vanced to move with a probability of success,
though not opposed by the itformons.
You are already apprised by the proclamation
of Baletatal YOUNOan— his letter to Col.
DER, which transmitted on the 15th Inst•, of
the political attitude SUMO by the Mormons,
and the resistance they meditate to the just au
thority the Government desires to nacre;so in that
Territory, and the General-in-Chief no doubt hue
already considered tho necessity of a conquest
of these traitorous people, arid has estimated the
force necessary to aceomp,i4 the object, with a
fall view of the whole subject before him. Ills
great experience would not be henefitted by any
suggestions of mine. I will, however, mention that
unless a largo force is sent hero, from the nature of
the country, a protracted war on' their part Is In
evitable. The great distance front our stores of
supply makes it impracticable to operate with a
small force.
It, la fact; requires the employm sat of rush forge
to guard numerous trains of supplies, leaving but
a small portion, if any, for offensive operations.
A movement of troops from California, Oregon, and
by this route, would terminate a war with the
Mormons speedily and more economically, than if
attempted -by Insufficient means. 'This ground
was taken in the Washington letter of Tne PRESS
some days ego :- 7 1.4?„ PRES SA
In five or six days I . think we will have all the
tome available here for %forte aril movement. By
that thee the trains will all l) 'They should
a bott,berstsoteseia In twelve clays from this time I
expect to join Col. Abe:tato:ma ct or near Fonte
' netts Creek. Tho General May be nesured that
no retrograde movement will be made by this forte.

The following Is the additional evidence:
Dr. S. P. Brown, sworn.—Rxtinelned the body of

cheek bone ; the upper jaw bone, and lower jaw,
cheek, and nasal bones were broken up to the eye,
above which there was no wound ; I opened. Had
examined the brain ; there were clots of blood be
neath the dune meter ; I believe it would kayo
been impossible for any one to move after re
ceiving such injuries . The prominent part of the

A general stagnation continues to prevail in the
stook market, and the absence of encouragement
from outside operators keeps prices steady for the
moment, but altogether uncertain as regards the
In the money market there is also no change to
record. Those who are fortunate enough to bold
undoubted paper are able to realize upon it readily,
at prices not greatly in exam of bank rates, but

a drumhead. But little improvement In this re•
spout is likely to bd felt until the return of active
business after the opening of the new year.
Counterfeit Ave-dollar notes on the Merchants'
Bank, letter A, are in circulation. They may be
easily detected by the quality of the paper, which
Is coarse, and has a dirty appearance.
Counterfeit two-dollar notes on the Newark
Banking Company are also in circulation. They
are photographs, and may be deteoted by those
familiar with the genuine by the stiffness with
which the name of the cashier, J. D. Venally°, is
written. The execution is &tarter than that of the
genuine, but it is calculated to deceive all num
, quainted with the bills.

7 per cent first mortgage loan, of $600,000, Issued

Correspondence of The Pp m]
Hsa Tomr, December It, 1857
The delay in the arrival of the Er "pa, from Eu
rope, with three days' later news, et. lee a general
holding off, and hesitancy to do busicess of any
kind. Bed news is apprehended of ,the great
American houses, and rumors were rife to-day that
the munificent aid recently given to a large Ameri
can banking elm' by the Bank of England, will
not be =Blatant to put them In smooth water.
There is also a rumor that one of the largest,
wealthiest, and most respected of our private lank
log houses, in this city, is going to wind up Its af
fairs, rather than Oontinue to Lear the heavy bur
den it has Lorne for some time at such heavy lose.
The house I allude to has given notice of dis
missal to a number of its clerks, and one of the
firm is said to have stated that " We have borne
this long enough we had better stop while we
can." I have been unable to trace the ranter to IS
positively authentie source. but I believe that
there is some foundation for it, although a favors
change of wind may alter the resolution. The
anxiety is intense, and if the news should be favora
ble, as I hope and believe it will, we may expect s
better tone to-morrow. There is cot the least altera
tion for betteror worse in the money market, if that
can be called a market where nothing is bought or
sold. The same delusive tale of abundance of
money at easy rates, on the " right kind of secu
rity," and the impregnable position of the banks,
and the truthful story of no money to Le had by
those who want it, except at a sacrifice to the note
shavers. The same thing day after day ; every
body complaining who needs assistance ; and every
body afraid of transferring his wallet from one
pocket to the other who has money, lest the trans
fer might lead =lose, from an unforeseen weakness
in the trusted pocket.
It is really unaccountstbie, bat it is so; and the
Lest evidence you can bars of the effect this state
of things is producing, Is to be found in the dimi
nished revenue. Could we got even a partial re-
stormion of confidence, the Improvement would be
immense; but when are wo to got it, and where ?
Contraction, liquidation, lawsuits, sheriff's silos,
suspensions, dismissal of workmen, are the events of
daily occurrence, in any quantity; but no tendency
to reviving commerce or industry.
This is a deplorable picture ; the more so when
we know we have abundant means, and are blessed
with every element of national wealth in agreeter
degree than any other nation in the world. bold
is flowing in on - us in million.,. One bank, it is
said, roamed half a million in one parcel, and
another steamer is due from California with SI,-
500,000. Tho salutary effect" of this in Wall
street, alluded to by an evening paper, is not so
apparent as that sheet seems to think.
