Senate.—The galleries of the chamber were
densely cioirdvd in anticipation of the re
demption of the debate upon the Nebraska
MIL The Sminte then resumed the consider
ation of the bill providing for the organization
of the Now territory of Nebraska.
Mr.lChase having the floor, spoke at length
la reply to the remarks of Mr: Douglas. Ile
smiled, in the course of his remarks, an
@amendment to the bill to strike out the words
feelarie g the Missouri compromise repealed
by the sets of 1850.. These words, he said,
were intended to demonstrate, and contained
as assertion historically and in foot unfounded.

Meeting of Congress there was .no agitation.
Oe annual message of the Provident Inform
ed the country that agitation had'heen

aresid be directed to preserve it in a state of
quiet. A fell doubted the accuracy of these
statements—they doubted whether the acts of
21550 wouldprove•toies a permanent adjust
ment of ,mho various questions 'growing out of
the institution of slavery. Those few thought.
Ski only way to settle the question ,waa too.

great Mistake. They were of factionists.---
Ile said that nt the begin Mg of

subject forever settled. They propose that a
sacred compact, that boa hndured throughout
a • whole .geoeration_, of men; _shall now be
rescinded. What tae the excuse for this?
Why,' that the compromise of 1856 superseded
the compromise of 1820.; • Now,' he ventured
to assert that no man beforo the •Sonatof from
Illinois (Mr. Douglas) proposed it; ever dream
, ed that such results had been accomplished' by
06 note of 4850. - The authority of Mr. Clay
•- had been quoted 46. Salida such a position,
but that great statesman had never, in all be
had said, suggested such a monstrous propo
sition. He referred, also, to the speeches of
Mr. Atchison, who had said at the last session
that the Missouri compromise had_ not been
repealed, and he never expected it would be.
He added also on this point, that neither Mr.
Douglas' bill of last session .nor that intro
duced and referred on the 4th of January last,
provided for the repeal of the Missouri com
promise. Ile then traced the various muta
tions of. the bill now in course of committee,
and held that never until the 224 of January
last was the bright idea entertained by any
one, that was then for the first time expressed
by the Senator from Illinois. Mr. Chase then
proeee4ei\to refer to the address that had
been i ued>and which the .Senator from Illi
nois [Mr. Douglas] had so freely commented
on. to said lie was willing and ready at any
time to maintain all the assertions of that ad
dress against any attacks upon it, which the
Senator might choose to make. When Mr.
Chase had concluded, Mr. Dixon obtained the
floor. It was moved to adjourn until Monday,
but the motion was disagreed to. The Senate
Ilouse.—Some little unimportant business
was disposed of. Several private bills passed
Committee of the Whole, and being reported
`to the House, were with others considered
and passed finally.
WASTIINGTON, Feb. 4
Senati—After some unimportant business
the Senate proceed to the oonsiderntion of the
Nebrnska bill, and Mr. Dixon, of Ky., having
the floor n'thlressed the Senate in support of
the bill. -He commented at lengtl3,upon the
statement in the address of the independent
democrats, in which it is said that if slavery
were allowed in the territories, it would pre
vent their settlement by the people of the
North and European emigrants, and held, that
this statement in substance declared that it
was moral pollution for the people of the
North and foreigners to be obliged to settle
down at the side of slaveholders. If the ad
mission of slaveholders would exclude for
eigners, ho would say let it exclude them. lie
then examined the subject of slavery, deny
ing it was an evil or injurious to the nation.--
It was the very life of the manufactinfing in
terests. Ile contrasted the condition of the
slaves with that of the free negiOes, and held
that the former woe •infinitely preferable.
The social and political freedom possessed by
the free negroes was but a mockery of free
dom. After Mr. Dixon concluded the further
consideration of the bill was postponed 'to
Monday, Mr. Wode, of Ohio, having the floor.
No 'session of the House.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6
Senate. —Mr. Shields, from the joint com
mittee, made report acknowledging in warm
terms the services, rendered by the rescuers
of the San Francisco. The report recommends
that each of tt'ir.ttiree Captains be, presented
with 'a gold ffiedal,liearing suitable devices,
and also that theitum of $lOO,OOO be appro
priated to enable the President to reward in a
proper manner the officers and crew, who
hororably distinguished themselves on that
occasion. The NebraskO bin was then taken
up and Mr. Wade spoke against it, followed
by Mr. Jones, of Tenneswea' is its favor. A
vote was taken on the 'nation of Mr. Chase to
" strike out the declaration that the Missouri
Compromise line was•superseded by the Com
promise of 1850.:1 1 •The amendment was re
jected by yeas 18, nays 81. This is an indi
cation of. the strength of the bill.
House.—No business of importance. A
similar report to that of Mr. Shields, was
made in relation the San Francisco. •
TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AND LOSS OF LIFE.-
French's Ball Cartridge Manufactory, at Ra
venswood, Long' Island, near Now York, ex
ploded last Saturday afternoon a week, with
terrible effect, shattering the building to
atoms, and shaking' the houses for miles
around. All tee persons at work in the

instantly killed, except two, and they wore so
badly injured that they survived • but a short
time. The number killed Was seveitieen. The
bodies of the unfortunates ware blown to
,atoms and mingled with the fragments of the
building, timber and machinery. 'Minute por

taming three tons of powder, 'narrowly escap
ed. The houses and windows in the village
adjacent wore much 'rlddledibut - out of the
factory, no lives were lost. The oxplosfen was
occasioned by aspirit lamp used to heat the
gtease In which the cartridges were immerse.
The details, given at great length in the New
York papers are shocking in the extreme.
Several barrels were filled with mangled por
tions of' the bodies of the victims.

STARTLING FOR TAX-PAYBRS 1
The Democratic Union, at Harrisburg, pub
lishes tho startling fact, taken from (ho re
port of the Auditor-General, that the whole
receipts from the Dahlia Works, during the
last fiscal year, were $1,893,261 19, while the
expenses reached $2,780,850 79. Excess of
expenditures over receipts, $887,589 66! It is'
very certain that the whole syspin has become
ono of shameless plunder of the public money;
and it is strange that there should be any
opposition among the
. peoplo to the .proposi
tion to sell these works. We do not wonder
that the loaders, who have their hands in the
Treasury, should 'oppose.. the measure; but
that the great body of the lieople should sub

they are, is indeed strange

ANOTIIER AUSTRIAN OUTRAGE:
A fresh outrage has been committed by the
Austrian authorities on an American citizen.,
It seems that the Rei. James Cook Richmond,
a Presbyter of the Episcopal Church, who has
been travelling in Europe lately, as a corres
pondent of thiii - London News, was' without a
shadow of reason, seized and feloniously treat
ed by the Austrian authorities while at Keosko
met, and not even allowed to telegraph the
American Minister at Vienna. His passports
.were all in perfect order, and nothing being
discovered against him, he was, after violent
detentiou and brutal treatment, graciously
permitted to depart.' Mr. Richmond sent an
account of these proceedings to the President
of the United States, through Mr. P. B. Drink
water, an English merchant at Liverpool, who
forwarded:likevvise a Copy to Mr. Buchanan at
London, and himself also addressed to the
President a letter. In the letter to the Presi
dent, Mr. Driukwater uses the sharpest lan
guage towards the
. American Minister at Vi
enna, whose conduct he characterizes "as de
grading in the extreme."
It is with a glow of pride that we read in
the London Times tbo.deolaration that " Mr..
Richmond has tho good fortune to be an
American citizen; and though the Minister
of his nation now at Vienna would appear to
have been neglectful of his duty, all the ante.
oedents of the American Government load us
confidently to anticipate that our friend will
hove justice done him."

Du. Manny ON THE TURKISH WAIL-MO
Rev. Dr. Durbin, in the course of delivery of a
highly interesting missionary sermon, at Wash
ington, on Sunday morning, clearly showed
that the warpow in progress between Turkey
and Russia had its origin in a reeliglous policy
on the part of the Czar, who is apprehensive
that "tolerati)n" by the TurkishlgovernMent
of all Christian creeds, may encourage a think
ing and investigating spirit which may extend
to the heart of his dominions, and thus imper
il the stability of his empire. Ton years ago
,while the doctor was at Smyrna, a young man
a Christine, for the purpose of Securing. by
marriage, the heart and hand of a lady of that
olty, apostatized to Mobammedism. But three

returned openly to his first lovo. For this ho
lost his head, which was thrown to the dogs!

stantially true, though po .sibly exaggerated.
What is certain, is that the Turkish troops
and officers still, maintain the reputation for
excellence which they acquired in the earlier
conflicts of the war.
Il information is yet wanting, but sifting
as carefully as we can the accounts that are
published. it would appear that on January
Gth, a Turkish division, "15,000 strong, with
15. pieces of artillery, attacked the entrenched
position of Citalt,.not far from Kalefat, end
took it by storm, The Russians lest 2,500
men. Ti o Turks, learning that a reinforce
ment of,, 18,000 Russians were on the march
fromKaraul, threw themselves in the way,
and after a brief but sharp attack, forced
them to retrace their stops, leaving 250 dead .

The steamship Arabia arrived at Halifax on
Saturday, with ono week's later intelligence
from Europe, which was immediately tele
graphed to New York. Up to the sailing of
the Arabia, there had been no definite intelli
gence from St. Petersburg, ne to the decision
of the Czar in regard to the last note of the
Four Powers. Europe was waiting with great
anxiety for the final answer of the Czar, which,
it was apprehended, would be of a character
equivalent to a 'declaration of war against
England and France.. ills answer was hourly
Further modifications in tho'noto of the
Four Powers have been made by the Porte,
stipulating that tht Principalities shall be
evacuated within fifteen or twenty days after
the acceptance by Russia, and that the renew
al of treaties is to be with special reference to
the integrity and independence of Turkey.
These modifications were approved by the
Powers, and sent to St. Petersburg, together
with a demand by the l'orto that the note ho
definitely accepted or rejected within forty
days from the 2.1 of January, and the Princi
palities evacuated within from twenty to thir
ty days of the Czar's letter of acceptance.
The whole of the allied fleets were in the
Black Sea on the sth of January, and intima
tion of the fact, with the statement that they
were there to protect Ottoman territory. from
aggression 'or hostile acts, was forwarded do
the ItUssian Government at Sebastopol by the
'British and French Ambassadors at Constan
tinople. who express the hope that the Admi
ral in command of tpe Russian forces maybe
so instructed as to prevent any occurrence
calculated to endanger peace.
Tho Czar was also informed of this- fact by
the British and French 'Ministers 'at St.
Petersburg on the 12th January; but up tc
the' departure of the Arabia, his reply had
not transpired:- Nothing short of the with
drawal of his Anibassadors from France and
England, and a formal declaration of was, was
looked for. •
The details of the battle- of Citalo, which
occupied from the Gth to the.l.oth of January,
show a deoisi've victory for the Turks, the
Russians, it is said, confessing to 4000 killed,

THE RISE OINNEWSPAPERS
The Boston Post furnishes some interesting
facts in regard to the rise and early progress
of newspapers. In James lites'dny, in Eng
land, news was occasionally circulated in
small Pamphlets. T. o earliest ono preserved
in the British Museum, is entitled '• News out
of Holland," of the date of 1619, and•printed
by N. Newbery, and there ore others of the
date of. 1620, 1621, 1622. In 1622, those
quarto issues were converted into a regular
weekly issue, entitled "News of the present
week," edited by Nathaniel Butler—and thin
was the first weekly newspaper published in
in England. In Charles lot's day, these news
pamphlets multiplied grea•ly. In 1622, the
"Kingdom's Intelligencer" was commenced
in London, which contained a greater variety
of matter than h'ad been customary. .14 a
few years the advertisement feature began.--
It. was not until Queen Anne's time, its 1700,
that the Londoners had the luxury of a daily
journal" The B oily Couraiit." Scotland had
a news taper in 1653; Ireland in 1611 ; Ger
many in 1612 ; the American colonies in 1704
The earliest country that then had them is
supposed to be Italy.
ALOIMOTII 13111 DAL CAKE.---At a wedding
celebrated at Louisville, a short time dace,
between a lady,.of that city and a gentleman
of Cincinnati, the bri lel cake prep .rod fur the

A Poultry Show
The Volunteer suggests, and we hope the
idea will be oarried into effect, that a Poultry
Show be held in Carlisle, some-time in March,
at which the different breeds of domestic and
imported' fowls in this county may bo.exhibit
ed, and small premiums be awarded for the
best and largest varieties. The Volunteer
mentions Mr. G. W. Hilton, S. Ensminger,
James Callio, and Messrs. T. & L. M. Biddle,
and many others, including our neighbor him
self, as luiving specimens of fowls that would
make an attractive exhibition, and who would
take pleasure in giving the public a glance at
thorn. The exhibition could'be held at trifling
expense, and a small admission fee would rfe'
doubt secure a sufficient sum to cover all the
cost. Wo heartily second the suggestion.
