Washinoios, Feb. 27, 18o9.
At the close of a weary day, I learned
that the Senate was still in session on the
Cuba bill. I entered the gallery just when
Mr. Wade, of Ohio, cot the floor and
moved an adjournment, so that be could
'peak to-morrow. Uut the Democrats,
i having determined in caucus tbat they
1 would take the final vote on the bill at
that 6ittinjr, though it extend
inte Sat -
, urday night, refused to adjourn.
Mr. DoohUle now moved to lay aside
! Cuba, and take up the Homestead bill.
The few Cubans who favor this latter, im-
' plored Doolittle not to injure the Home-
'lead, by antagonixing it with "this great
measure cf foreign policy." He warned
them that the country would regard this
as a test vote. They winced, and the
skirmish went on.
Trumbull struck the admirable point,
'tat it was wiser to tako up and pass a
on one wnica proposed to cuy more.
a ouu wuie-u pre'posea to uuv more.
Seward pronounced the Cuban foray a
icre partiz in scheme, whose friends knew
could not by any possibility pass the
it could not by any possibility pass the
lower House, while the Homestead could
become a law, by the action of the Senate,
in ten minutes. He briefly contrasted
tue two policies one to eniarga the ao-
aiain of the Slave power, and restore and
maintain the supremacy of compulsory
labor ia the tropics the other, to give
land to the landless, and furnish homes to ;
tne ffee laborers of our own country. He

held their breath. Now, some feet came
down with one determined stamp upon the
fl)or a few hands smote together but
the Kits, in the gallery and in Senate,
shouted with a mingled roar of laughter
and cheers the President throwing dowa
the ravel in despair. Having, in this
phrase, compressed the whole argument j
into the smallest possible compass, Wade
went on roasting the Democracy about
their "niggers."
Mr. Fessenden was more deliberate. In
deed, he was persistently calm, and pro Jo
kingly cool. Ho told Toombs that Re
publicans did not aka'.k or shiver on the
Cuba fU.tion, but only meant by this
course to take their own time, and teach
gentlemen that the Senate was to be gov
erned by its own rules, and not by the de
crees cf a party caucus, and that tbey
should permit the vote to be taken on the
bill when they bad said all they wished
j tj on the subject, and no sooner.

thoughts on his face, knew he was biding

Death of a Flodern Nero.
A late mail fr -m the West Coast of
Africa brings tidings of the death of Gezo,
the notorious !ave King of Dahomey,
wh-i, fir upwards of twnty five years,
upplied the demands of the Spanish, I'or
tug 'se and American slave dealers who ia
fest the Uight of Benin, ravaging and de
vastating the interior far and wide, by hie
slave hunts, to obtain victims f-r his L'a
ropcan customers.
l.ivingrton, llartb, T?owen and other re
liable travelers bear witness to the im
mense tjutakt cf fijurishing towm laid
waste by the slave trade, and to the com-p-rative
happiness cf the interior, where
the clave trade does not exist. There ara
the sites cf eighteen sacked cities within
the distance if sixty miles between Bada
gry and Abeeckuta. At the taking of
one cf tb.se, Geij killeJ or captured
ttrm'y tViKyinif people. The whole num
ber destroyed in this section of country,
within the last fifty years, can not be less
than ILi'jii M'Uiin of souls I The result
cf this was t) build up towns on the coast,
er slave marts, which of course were ver-
itable hel.j. A.gicrs, in its worst cays,
was a Qaaker vi.Iage to tucn piacei as
V.'hi low, Uadairry and Lag-. Murder,
; torture, and all the superfluity of such
' atnoniae Vice as cur iangjaQ, wants
Dame :.r, ani our worst i.nners aaow-
' lodge cf, ran riot in those places with
'jtto, the bead devil of ttiit modern order
j of things. Ia short, the slave trade, for
which we have heard clergymen express
1 thanks, and which ignorant and besotted
! politicians of our own country aeet witla
enormous blindness to reerl as a part cf
the a Ivancing progress otJo sge, has had
j the effect of turning estern Africa to
veritable inferno.
