In the Senate, on the 14111, as we learn
from tIP; Globe, the Federal majority laid
nr. McDuffle's resolution on the table,
with Mr. Evans's amendmeni.a. We sup
pose this was the decision of a caucus. The
Federal party are unwilling to take the tax
es. which their !ate prohibit-ry tariff levi-s,
out of the coffers of their friends, the man
ufacturing capitalists, to put in the treisury
of a Government which with its patronage,
they look uprn as hostile. They are pia) ing
a politieal game, and they are resolved to
have the st ,kes in their own hands. With
regard to all responsibility—which, as hold.
ing the soverei2n powers of legislation, un
der the Constitution, they outfit to feel—
it is to be shirked, unrl r the pretext that
they rou'd to , t manage the President they

The Suit estimates the expenses of emi
grating tq Oreg On. and living for one year,
at $3OO. This, we deem, is $2OO more
than is absolutely necessary; but suppose
it a correct estimate, we still consider it
"trifling." W o do not believe, with the
Sun, that "not one in twenty of those who
are laboring under the Oregon fever have
this amount, nor are they able to procure
it." For our part, we do not know a sin

country, who would find it impossible
to raise 5300, if so much shoulil be rrqui

If we come to this, we can safely say,
that they could hve better there on game
and fish, and the spontaneous productions
of the e rib, much better than they do now,
when ''soup houses" have to be establish-

This is a mis ake. There are numbers of
