The figures re rather star tli tig. Three
Thousand dollars a year, with mileage,
and the franking privilege, does not seem
to be an inordinate price for tho highest
legislative labor. Yet when wo come to
! multiply the pay, mileage and franking
privilege of a single member by 300 (the
number of member in both Houses) and
find the cum total fonts up Fiec ilillluiu,
l.'ihi-Tlire Tli'iitmnd Five Ifumlretl ami
I'ututy-Thrce Dullnn, tho revelation is
rather startling. Hut thero is a way of
looking at this subject, which is not only
6tartling, but astounding. Divide S5,0S!,
53 by 300, ue have, as "the anuual cost
of a Member of ( 'nngress, the snug little
sum of 510,901,05," which xarather com
fortable. l!ut is it not our business to
make, our great men comfortable? Sure
ly it is. Yet the question is asked,
'How does all this money go 7" Deduct
tho 53,000 which the Congressman pock
ets from $10, Dot, 05, there remain nearly
814,000. What becomes of it 7 It ap
pears that this $14,000 per member is
spent in "contingencies," a term not very
intelligible until translated into such
words as "correspondence, post offices,
postmasters, pages, clerks, managers, wri
ting paper, horses, police, newspapers,
carryalls, hacks, souir, documents, bufla-lo-combs,
bindiog, toilet soap, fuel, mir
rors, oil, Telvet carpets, folding, looking
glasses, black kid gloves, and miscellane
ous." Altogether, it will be seen, at
least we hajie it will be seen, that with I
the aid of the items above given, added '

but profuse, wanton, wild, imperial ex

but we beg leave to remind them that in
an unusual, nay an extraordinary age like
the present, it would be unwise as well as
useless to attempt to hamper the towering
and luxurious inclinations of s Congress
man with the narrow-minded notions of
economy which prevailed in the earlier,
and as some will persist in affirming, the
better days of the Republic. What I re

A Warning to Boys.
John Capio, who was shot in a fire
man's riot in Philadelphia, died of his
wounds on Wednesday week, at the age of
27. His father was Joseph Capie, an
Englishman by birth, who at one time
held a responsible position in the British
navy. He afterwards made his home in
Philadelphia, and married Miss Maria
Ervin, of Southwark. They bad several
children, who were brought up in the old
district of Southwark. Capt, Capie en
gaged in the merchant service, and was
lost off the Cape of Good Hope, leaving
his wife with several yoang children to
enpport. Mrs. Capie made every effort to
rear her family respectably. John re
ceived a fair education ; but when quite a
youth became associated with a rowdy fire
company, and acquired very vicious hab
its. About six years ago, while on a de
bauch, he wantonly murdered an inoffen
sive man, named Christopher Soohan, for
which be was convicted and sentenced to
be hanged, but was pardoned about eight
een months ago. When he first came out
of prison, he made a feeble attempt to
mend his life, but soon fell into bia old
habits, and mingled with his old associates.
His story is fraught with warning against
the perils of bad company and the use of
ardent Bpirits. John Thompson, charged
with shooting the deceased, is at large.
Rev. Howard Malcom, P. D., has re
fused an offer of 3,000 dollars from a
Southern publishing house, to strike out
of bis Rible Dictionary some allusion to
the d.ffurcuce between Hebrew servitude
and Anglican s'uvory.

Two Cases Contrasted.
The tendency of the government of this
Republic, was Dcrer more faithfully illus
trated than in two recent trials one at
Charleston, the other at Cleveland one,
the trial of a gang of desperadoes and cut
throats, who were engaged in reducing a
cargo of innocent men to slavery ; and
the other, the trial of one of twenty or
more Christians for assisting ono enslaved
man to regain the freedum of which he
had been robbed. In the first, there is no
doubt that the charge unwillingly urged
by the Government against the crew and
officers of the schooner Echo, was fully
sustained. The Captain of the U. S.
ISrig Dolphin, by whom the Echo was
captured, was on the stand as witness,
lie testified pointedly as to the arrest of
the prisoners on the high seas ; to the
feet that they had a cargo of half starved
Africans on board ; that the marked chart
on the vessel showed their track from the
coast where their slaves were shipped, to
the spot where the eaptura was made ;
that the blacks were in irons and in the
hold ; and that the outfit of the vessel,
the nature of her
cargo, the admissions of
her crew, and the story of tho slaves, left
no doubt that the Echo was a slave trader,
and that the prisoners were willingly,

fence offered no rebutting evidence what
ever. The attorneys for the accused knew
what tbey were doing, and that they
' might depeud upon the indisposition of
i the Government to convict. The case
went to the Jury, and that body, sworn to
' act according to the law and the testimony,
! hesited only to make a show of delibera
tion before they returned with the verdict
of Not Guilty I There is not a boy in
the streets of Charleston who does not
know that the finding in the case was a
lie; and that an outrage has been inflicted
upon law and justice.
The other case, is that of tho Oberlin
rescuers. The "man John," an escaped
Kentucky chattel, was arrested in Ohio
by a slave catcher, who does his dirty bu
siness on shares. The arrest was on a
warrant issued by an officer who had no
Jurisdiction in the dittrict, and of course,
tens icilhoul legality ; but the Marsual re
fused to give the prisoner up. An ex
citement arose among the free men of the
neighborhood, that so shameless a thing
should be ; and, without violence or in
timidation, they terrified the cowardly of
ficials so much that they suffered John to
escape. The rescuers were lately indict
ed. One of them has just been tried by
a Democratic court, and an exclusively
Democratic jury ; though the testimony
was lame and inconclusive, the Govern
ment had made such extraordinary exer
tions that a speedy conviction was had,
and bo is sentenced U a fine of a thou
sand dollars, or a year in the Penitentia
ry! Twenty others not pirates, cut
throats, slave-traders, but men of charac
ter for integrity and virtue are in prison
awaiting a similar trial and a similar sen
tence 1
And yet, we hear from no Democratic
journal a word of condemnation for the
proceedings in either case. Editors and
orators are sending up jubilant shouts iu
consequence of the "vindication of law"
in Ohio, but we havo yet to know that
they bava uttered a murmur at tbe defi
ance of law in South Carolina. Tbe same
power that ctupanoelled the jury by which
a crew of pirates were turned loose and
invited to repeat their crimes, held the
key to the jury box in which sat the men
who have punished the lovers of freedom,
in Oberlin, with tbe extremcst penalty of
the law I That power is the Federal Gov
ernment, wielded by James Buchanan,

must be held responsible for verdicts like
these. Let the people know that iu this
era of tho Republic, the slave-trade is no
crime ; but those who laugh and shout in
approbation of the act, when an escaped
slave is recovered into the clutches of the
boand by whom bo is pursued for a price,
shall feci that slavery reaches with a long
arm and sharp talons into the heart of ev
ery Free State. The trials of which we
speak, will have widely different results.
South Carolina will become more blindly
and criminally devoted to the Sham Democ
racy which yields to all her demands.
But we shall be mistaken if Ohio and
her freemen do not speak in trumpet
toues in reprobation of that Democracy
which docs not hesitate io outraging all

The Southern Prethyturian gives an in
teresting account of the dedication of Zion
Church, Charleston, S. C, a very large
new house of worship just erected, chiefly
for the use of the colored people. Mr.
Girardeau, one of the ablest and most
popular preachers in the South, is the
pastor. Rev. Dri. Smyth, Adger, Kirk
patrick, and other ministers were present,
and took part in the exercises. The con
gregation varies from 2,500 to 3,000.
Jeffrey Droin, who died recently in St.
Joseph, Mo., in his 5Sth year, waj one of
the "lions" of the West. The St. Joseph
(Mo.) Gazette says he was born in St.
Louis, (a slave of Joseph Robidoux, Sr.,
founder of St. Joseph,) and passed nearly
the whole of his early life with the Indian
tribes, became an expert trader, and real
ized sufficient means to purchase bis free
dom in 1835. lie was then employed as
the Government interpreter for many
years. In 1344 he accompanied a num
ber of Iowa and Sas and Fn Indian
chiefs to Europe. His interpretation of
their languages was so clear and intelli
gent that ho not only made a favorable
impression upon the dignitaries of the
foteign courts at which they were received,
but, it is said, fascinated a lady of high
title. D israeli and ether literati showed
him marked attention. lie spoke French
as fluently as he did English, or dozen
Indian tongues, with which he was fami
liar, lie left a wife and children, and
several thousand dollars worth of property.
He purchased bis wife some time ago.
Johnson, Turpin Si Dunbar, a linn of
colored men in New York, have bought
the ship Alcndi, which is intended as a
regular trader between that city and Li
beria. A King in Abyssinia has recently be
come a convert to Popery. He has some
three million snbjects,"blaek but comely,"
of noble, athletic, Grecian forms. They
hold slaves, bnt can not be themselves
enslaved. x

The Texas Outrage.
Our Western exchanges all comment
indignantly upon the outrage committed
in Texas upon Bishop Janes and the Tex
as Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church. It was one of those incidents
which, in themselves, portray better than
any language can, the wickeduess of Sla
very and its utter disregard of tho rights
of thoso who eomo in conflict with it.
The Christian Advocate, of St. Louie,
uses, in this connection, tho following
strong language :
"Has it come to this, that in our great,
free and glerious country, a Bishop of
our church is to be arrested whilo cos
ducting diviue service, by a worthless mob
of Border Rulfiaus, led en by the Church
South, and oar ministers required to aban
don their work ? This is not a question
of mere JioWism, or local interest. It
is a qaestion in which are involved the
principles of civil and religions liberty.
We assert and maintain the doctrine that
we have the right to ga into any Stale or
Territory, North or South, and preach the
Gospel, and administer our Discipline,
without 'let or hindrance.' We hope our
brethren in Texas will stand by the
church. They have our sympathy and
prayers; we know what it is to pass
through tbe fiery ordeal tbey arc called to
expeneoce. Tbe oonflict in reality is not
with the citizens of Texas, but with tbe
Church South. That church is banished
on the arena of fair argumentative con
flicts. The decisive proof of this position
is. she has to have recourse to physical
force pistols and bowie-knives. The
Church South, after this Bonbam affair,
can not say, 'The weapons of our warfare
are of ettrnal.' Wo hope our brethren
throughout tho chureh will pray for the
brethren on our border work. It is a try
ing time. Our trust is in God the God
of our fathers, the siine God that sustain
ed them during persecution and death,
while engaged in planting our beloved
Meihodisui m this laud. This is the hour
of suffering, but Ihe dy of triumph is not
for ditUut."

Destruction Railroad.
The Directors take pleasure in re assu
ring numerous friends and patrons that
the road to Ruin is now in good order.
Within the last three months it has carried
more than three hundred thousand pas
sengers clear through the town of Tem
perance to the city of Destruction, while
the number of way passengers is encoura
ging. An enormous amount of freight,
such as mechanics' tools, household furni-
lure, and even whole farms, have gone
forward; and the recetpts of the year
have been so large that tbe directors have
resolved to declare a dividend of five hun
dred per cent. The track has been much
improved and re-laid with Messrs. Dia
bolus & Co.'s patent rail. The grades are
reduced to a dead level, and the switches
brought to such perfection along the route
tr. b .r ;n . mnmnt from il,.
main track, to avoid collision with tbe To-
..i iiiii, oS.. uv, .u
trains which recently ocrasioned so much
trouble. In short, we have spared no ex -
pensa to mk it onpeiiur to any other
I road to Ruin ever established. It gives
. ti .l r
us great pleasure to call the attention of
. , ,. , .
the public to the improvements in our
engines and cars. The old favorite loco
motive, Alcohol, has a fire chamber of
double capacity, and patent driving wheels,
after the fashion of oid Juggernaut. Our
Wino cars are models of luxurious convey-
ance, after the pattern of the far-famed
London Gin palaces, where ladies and
gentlemen of the first water can have all
attention. To keep op with the spirit of
the times, our Whisky, Rum, and Bran-
, . i iii i
dy cars have been greatly enlarged, and
fare reduced to half price. Our Cider,
Porter and Beer cars are exciting great at-
tention among the children. Our experi-
enced engineer, Mr. Belial, and our polite
and gentlemanly conductor, Mr. Mix

public to need any commeudation. In-
deed, so swift and sparkling are our trains,

Drinker's Hotel, where you may sec tho

Bird Wilson died in New York on :hc
14th ult. Mr. Wilson was a IVntisjlva

and for a while practiced at Nurristowu
and Philadelphia. He wis appointed, by
Gov. Snyder, President Judgo of tbo Ju

Delaware aod Bucks counties, which posi

One of the greatest soc'ul evils in tbi
country encouraged by the iasane p-.-li
cy of Free Trade is the rage that per
vades all ranks fur Jre4 and luxury. Al
most every article of appirel f ir either
sex must be of foreign manufacture, or it
is "not the thing" "not fit t . wear"
"common" "vulgar." American goods
are scouted in fashionable circle. So
wide spruad and universal has this f d'y
become, that many of our s'irewJ Yankee
manufacturers have found it necessary, iu
order to f t rid of ll.eir good at all, to
pats them under a forilyn label whilo
others, more honest, aro compelled to
close their establishments and relinquish
business. This, while operating as a deal
weight upon our domestic industry, is
leading to habits of ruinous extravajrtneo
in every family. The following figures,
setting forth the importation of woven
fabrics into New York from the l?t of
January to the 1st of April of ths threa
last years, shows to what extent this evil
is practiced :
