An I.mpoutant Debate. There was
a debate in the U. S. Senate one day last some Courts. It was a caso of alleged as

Senators, which showed that that party j no impertinences or useless talk was pcr-
is demoralized and disorganized. The de- niUtcd io lawyers or witnesses ; the latter
j bate arose on an amendment to an appro-: were discharged as soon as the Judge coa

ding for striking out the English restric-!
tion against the admission of Kansas. ;
Messrs. Toombs, Davis, Mason, G win and !

and insisting that the Democratic policy '

The Bar of Northumberland is certainly
str.ng in numbers, and very respectable in
point of legal ability. Judge Jordan was
compelled to request the Commissioners to
bring in half a doicn extra chairs, to ac
commodate the member, of tha bar, who
were standing within their wooden walls
with a very tired look. Notwithstanding
the present abundance, another lirge

as baggage, than to be put in passenger
cars. No sensible person objects to any
ono's riding because he is a lumberman,
or poor, or coarsely clad ; but watermen
as well as others can be clean and civil,
and can keep their tongues, their breath,
and their eyes to themselves. Kaiiway
cninrianirs have nnt the riht to fill a rtas-
r o i
seugcr car with men whose dirtiness,
whiskey, tobacco, and rude and violent
conduct disgust and annoy other men and
render women and children fearful for
their personal safety. Ye men of the
North aud West ! you would be ashamed
aud afraid to have your own neighbors,
your mothers, sisters, wives, or daughters
see you as yuu sometimes exhibit your
selves. Be warned and no looger disgrace
your homes and yourselves. The Al
mighty's eye is upon you everywhere, and
the world sees and despises your silly
sport. If such conduct is continued, you
will have to be carried like swine in a
' pcu fitted up for just your condition,
for such nuisances must bo abated from
i public cars.
j From some typo, travelers we nevcr fail
; to bo informed of the "gentlemanly con
ductor This," and tho "polite Col. That"
just as if any conductor were entitled
to especial commendation lor being a gen-
tleman-or as if any Company would dare
to contiuue a conductor who was nut a gen
tleman at least outwardly I While all
men should be kind and accommodating,
those especially in a public capacity must
be so, or be expelled ; and for doing only
every .day duty, well paid for at that, no
one deserves extra pay or especial thanks,
cards, canes, or gold watches But we
must say that our afternoon's conductor ,
was the least disposed to wound the feel
ings (through the pockets) of any of the
"gentlemanly' fratcruity we ever saw. He
twice passed five of us without insinuating
any desire to see our tickets, but when four
expressed their resentment by volunteer
ing the tickets at being thus compelled
to appear as "dead heads," he "kindly"
accepted them at their hands. It wa. the
first time we were ever "overlooked" by
the money takers an act so "gentleman
ly" as to extort this favorable notice con
trary to our usual custom. One, however,
