Congressional Extravagance. 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 ' to "miscellaneous," tho $14,000 which ; each Uoncres'sman does not exactly pock- fc ., , , . , ' . . et, may easily tie iritterec away, abu why not? Will any patriotic and sensi ble citizen dare, in this free and enlight ened country, to affirm that $ 14,000 is t. . 1 ;n w..,ttfi.i tlia too ,Uucu iU ' ' iamj. fJrbiJJca traffic.

Nay, verily. "The people can not wish this. They desire decency in all things, but profuse, wanton, wild, imperial ex travagance they do not desire, and they will not countenance." This may be so, 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.

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.

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, 1rm-itt n n A nri t n n I 1 It i ("1 r a I in film 1 6 J " J fa 6 po.t.u u iavi "'". -...-l-v.v-w- veracity.

W U mv .tb.ttjf ..... ..v 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, ir j .i .f i. i.A . u i 1 lie auu luc piirijr ui wuivu ub jd i.u uu 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 tiit tlej hold dcit ! Detroit TriLune.

A bill for preventing and punishing the selling of liquor to slaves has pasfed both Houses of the Louisiana Legislature, and will become a law. Would it not be a good thing to extend the law to white f.jlks to all slaves to intemperance,actual or possible ?

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 New Castle (O. S.)

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."

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 , ? .ii . .u . r have been too loog known to the traveling e public to need any commeudation. In- deed, so swift and sparkling are our trains, that some have called it "The living ar- . ,.,., . ,. t tillery of hell let loose on earth. lick- , ., .v ets must be obtained of Mr. Mix, at tbe Drinker's Hotel, where you may sec tho following extract from our charter from the government : Licenced, to make a strong man weak ; Licenced, lo lay a wise man low ; Licensed, a wile's fond hart lo break. And make her children's tears to ll,,w. Licensed, lo do thy neighbor harm ; Licensed, to caiiie hate an I stnte ; Licensed, lo nerve the rolibei's arm; Liccused, to whel the niiird'-rous knife.

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 : is-n. isr.
