The Locofoco Senator.
The Carlisle Democrat hoists the name of
--Allot. B. Anderson for the Senate, as agreed
upon y four out of sit of the Conferees, but
thePerunteer does not concur. The Volunteer
is fiery much astonished and indignant that
Perry' woe not allowed the man of her choice,
Mr. Baily. The Volunteer ,hopes that some
_arrangement may be made for the withdrawal
of Anderson, but declares
s eery plainly that in
the event of Baily and Anderson both remain=
lag In the field, it will take
,its stand for the
former and maintain it to tholast. In this in.
terestingetate of things a good many of our

. The roosting of the Whig County Committee,
which is °ailed in to.day's paper, we hope will
-be fully attended by the' members. It Is - high
time the work of thorough organization in our

'altar:lent exists in the political world, that it Is
mach to be feared there will be a very email

this happens we have generally observed toour
sorrow that Ike falling off on the Whig side is
usually about double that of oar opeonente.-

On Saturday the California bill was taken
up, carried triumphantly through every stage,
and finally passed by a vote of 150 yeas to 56
nays. Being the same bill that came from the
Senate, it does not, of Course, go back to that
body.l It only needs the President's signature to
become a law. That, it has, doubtless, already
•received ; and California, therefore, the golden,
the glorious, the free California, is now ti new
'star in our national constellation. ,
The Utah territorial bill succeeded; anrw as
passed in the same way, and almost with the
same facility, all amendments being rejected,
the Wilmot proviso as readily as any other,
and very excellent humor seeming to prevail
among memberi—the victors and the defeated
alike—with the exception of Mr. Seddon, of
Virginia, and Mr. Toombs, of Georgia, between
whom there weft a email passage at arms on the
very interresting question whethe the admis

The Triumph of Texas.
Tho North American remarks, with g real
truth, upon the passer, of the Texan boundary
bill by Congress, that there aro many of the
truest of our country who will never
cease to regret the circumstances under which
this bill was carried through Congress. It was
clearly the result, net of changed convictions,
but of fear and coercion. The South has tri
umphed ; the majority has yielded to the mi. -
nority ; Northern men have laid down. their
wishes—end even their •principhr and pledges
-on the altar of conciliation. But thews is no
merit of magnanimity. All was done under
duress. It was because the South hectored that
it surdebded. It was because Texas threatened
rebellion and civil war, and the disloyal citt
