Montgomery bill submitted the question to the people of
Kansas whether they would some logo the Union with the'
Leeomplon constitution or not. The Calderone* bill sub •
mhe precisely the same question to the people of Kansas. I
The only linguist difference between the hills is this: that
by Ow foram, if the people of Kansas voted against id,
minion with the Lememipten ormsetitation, they wore enabled
to proceed it ones and Three another constitution; by the
lather, if they rots against admission with the Leeomplon
oonatitation. they are enabled to melte another constitution
when their population ruches the Federal ratio of repro
agitation. This le the only material difforenee between
the bill/ The Federal ratio of representation is 93,520.
It is the opinion of Secretary STAaTOIII, recently expresstat ,
tbat the population of Kansas during tog present emigra
tion season will reach one hundred and twenty thousand?
Mr Cox, of Ohio, stated in the House an Friday that hi
had conversed with Oov. W , and that it was the
Ootertior's opinion that by next fall Kansas would hairs a
population equal to the Federal ratio of representation
If Munro. WAtAta Lod STANTon do not en' in judgment,

Bat while it is the fact that there Is no material difference
between the Wilk—which fact forecloses the black republi
can* from assailing the Conference hill, since all their
members of Congress voted for the C.ritteadeti Mootgurnery
Wll r "eternal slavery and all,"--while, we say, this is the
fact, the Conference bill is none the more meritorious on
that acoouct; for, it IS entirely within the discretion
Congress to say when Kansas may come tato the 1 ait.n,
and we hold, and we have all the while held, that it is a
wise eserctse of that discretion to slit that she shall not
come in until the has population enough to entitle her to
a Represeotati•e under the r a tio It to what Congrei•
ought to say to all the Territories, and we beliet e it is
what Congress will hereafter say to all the Territories
We are told that if Kansas is admissible now with the
Lecompton constitution she ought to be admissible with
any other constitution that she wants Were this stated
as a general rule, applicable to the admission of States, it
would be eminently correct. When a State is &Irbil/Able
she Is of course entitled to any constitution she wants .
provided it be . republican. But, and thu is the grand
point, remorse is not really admiseible. Since, however, a
eneetitution has been sent to Cc ogress, made In pursuance
of the forme of law, and since an unfortunate controversy
has prevailed to Congress and throughout the country over
ibis constitution whether Kansas ought to be brought
in with it or not, it has been concluded by a majority of
Coogreas that, for the purpose of settling this controversy
amicably, the matter of the population of the Territory
shall be overlooked so far as to admit with thut constitu
tion, about which there btu been so much tr..uble, if the
people by their votes, at a fair election, shall say they want
to he admitted with it. If they do not want to be admit

has been asserted that it it not upon " the iluesitun

answer that assertion by coottagthe bill. In the firit sec

namely. that the Or snuissium, with the follow
ing proportion in lieu of the ordinance framed at Lewomp

KANSAS, " &C.
We shall be told—and over this the black republicans
will shriek themselves hoarse—that by the bill Kansa s
ran come in as a slave State with fifty thousand popula
tion, but that to come In sea free State it must have ninety
three thousand. Let on see what there is .•1 thi.. With
the 1.-eotapten constitution Kansas would be Ilelave State,
to be sure—os paper! but is feel, it would be a free St atq
Nobody is so insane, we suppose, in any part of the country
as to apprehend that there is any longer any doubt about
the slave question in Kansas. It is settled. Mr. Sewaan
said so to the Senate little while agu. Rut the black
republicans do not mean to disclose tears that their bre
three in Kansas are going to vote themselves into the
Union with the Leoompton constitution, "eternal slavery
and all Whatever their (ears in this regard, and what
ever may be the event, Katmai has but one destiny; she
will be a free State. There is, then, no subalanoe in the
shriek about fifty thousand population fur a slave State
and ninetysthree thousand for a tree State.
SORRY TO SMIT.—Wo are very sorry to see that
General Houstonintion, relating to the establishment
of • protectorate over Mexico, noticed by us last week,
has been laid on the table of the Senate. The condition
not only of that country, but of the Central American
Btatu, is such as to require some action on the part of our
government. We bays ever been among those who ads°
gated a bold, and decided policy in our dealings with the
petty nations on this °endpoint. We would have prompt
ly pi:sighed the outrages upon our claim's at Panama, and
we would have tolerated no interfersnee with our rights
in Nicaragua by English agents. The Transit route
should have been free, and our trade uninterrupted by
either native or foreign emissaries. Oar country has
way, been too lenient in its foreign policy. Mexico was
allowed for many years to insult our flag, rob oar citizens,
and violate all ter treaty obligations, until she 6 oally
tame to think that we ocorld not be kicked into a war--
So vEth the old worn out despotism of Spain. Her agents
al Cuba have repeatedly insulted and maltreated our
sena, and our government has been content to negotiate
* and palaver with her diplomats, instead of promptly de.
mending and exacting reparation. So also with the pretty
states of Central America. They have been instigated
by English emissaries to commit outrages upon our citi•
lens, to trifle with their rights, and to violate the •eknow
lodged law of nations: All this has been overlooked, and
our government has apparently been much more anxious
to protect them from private enemies, than to protect our
eitisens from their rapacity and lawlessness. We hope
this too indulgent spirit is drawing to a close.

LIIINfINTNNE7S Th'ArrLs IN AFRICA" -We
are indebted to the Publisher, J. W Da•oi.nv,4B. N. Fourth
street. Philadelphia, for a Copy Of this interesting work.
There Is no depertmeot of our literature that has bad so
many rich contributions of late years as that of geography,
and none that promises co much for civilisation and christi,
anity as the explorations or Dr. Livingstone Ills work,
whenever read, has'awakened the liveliest interest in the
undo' eloped resources of Africa. Especially is it so In
the country, for here the question of the capabilities of the
oegro race for a high Jerke of eultivation Is constantly
being &primed. It has entered into our polities—it btu
- beeome chronic, as it were—and the body politic is infret
ing therefrom. Any work, therefore, that reveals the ekes ,
trier of the negro in his home, exhibits him as left by the
hand of nature, meets with eager tenders, and interested
thinkers This is just what the work of Dr. Livingstone
does. It shows that Africa bas immense resources, but
that the hand, sod energy, avid brain of the white man
must be used to develope them. The condition of the
African may be bettered, but it will require the strong arm
of a humane race to do it. The Book is issued in good
style, contains 440 pages, and is very finely illustrated, and
is offered at the extreme low price of $1,25.
AN ACT Or JU.VTIOE —Not many weeks ago, says
the Philadelphia Jourvio/, Edward G. Loring, of Massa•
cbusetu, was removed tram &judicial position, by t h e
teat. party of that.abolition locality, fur haying faithfully
discharged his duty in the enforcement of the federal laws.
We see by a telegraphic despatch from Washington that
President Koehanan, with a graceful appreciation of the
fidelity of the Judge, has nominated him to All the cacao ,
oy in the Court of Claims, occasioned by the death of the
lamented Gilchrist. Mr. Loring is an old Line Whig, and
bas always been a political opponent of the President--
We are confident that his appointment will be cordially
approved by the country Whatever may have been the
consi-deration which determined Mr. Buchanan's action in
thl cave, the majority will give him credit fur this act of
jurtice. The removal of Mr. Loring was an set of fairiatt
cum, which would nullify the laws of the land. It wee
due to the victim and the outraged majesty of the law that
the federal goverodient should of the seal of Condemns
tiNt upon the infamous deed.
IA Y.—The month of "smiles and tears." blooming
May, has thus far kept up its reputation. The sun, genial
and warm. has ever and anon peeped down upon us from
behind a aloud, and then, like a eoy maiden, has bid her
face and wept "dere, tears." We do not know, not being
versed in the mysteries of poetic inspiration, but the idea
bas just suggested itself that the rrasun poets so often "sigh
like a furnace" over the month of Kay, is because, like
themselves, it is very, very—green' The very earth and
air smell of greenness: the gre., sprouts like ■n incipi
ent monstachie on the upper lip of a modern Byron ; the
trees deck themselves in the most elaborate vesture, while
little calves and lambs, like little poets, draw Inspiration
from lowing bards and bleating flock a. Verily, If we bad
nu mooch of May, we should have no country Byron*, and
without those useful articles, what would our Matilda Anne
and Bash Janes do for album poetry, or the
newspaper fsr "our own eorrespondent."
Per The Western A yw, of Westfield, makes the
announcement that its nett number will be issued at

JIIIr• It is a trite remark that one half the world does
not know low the other half live; and here is a ease in
point, as related by a Buffalo paper. A family named
Rom, living in a miserable hovel, was arrested in that
city for vagrancy. The hovel would hardly admit a per
ono mending upright in it, and was in an oirtreetely filthy
Condition. No food but a morsel of dry dour, no furniture
pf any sort but' a rickety bed, covered by rags, upon which
was a drunken mother and three children, &linearly nude,
•and no fire or means of making one. The husband and
father was at work, bet as his wages went for run, he sad
his family were arrested. Ile was sentenced to the Penis
tentiary tor two months, and the woman and her offspring
were sent to the Poor Boos.. We are se eding every year

happy to meet you on this auspiciolis occasion,
and to mingle my congratulationi with yours and
those tof our common countrymen, that a goes
tionffruitful'of controversy and strife amongst
those who should be friends, and amongst those
who have bees friiinds--a subject which bad for
a long tune engendered strife between widely ,
separated sections of our great country, and which
for four months put has occupied almost exolu.
sively the time of Congress and interrupted the
public business—bas been finally, and, as I trust,-
most happily disposed of and adjusted forever.
[Applause.] I congratulate you on this happy
event : and, I trust my fellow citizens, that the
measure adopted yesterday by Congress for the
final settlement of this Kansas question may ex•
ereise, as I believe it will exercise, a most salu
tary influence upon the future 'peace and pros- I
perity of our common country. [Applause.] I
regard it as a measure of peace not only for Kan
sas, but for the whole country—a measure of
Union for the States and union for the democrat.
ic party [Applaupe ] When in Decearber last
this issue was first presented, I little anticipated
all the difficulties which we have since encoun
tered ; but I adopted the course which I have
since pursued from a high sense of duty, and an
abiding belief that the admission of that Territo
ry as a State was the best means of settling this
endless feud which was agitating the country.--
I adopted that policy, I say, because it accorded
with my convictions of duty, and, in addition to
that, I was enabled to cooperate and sustain our
wise, prudent and sagacious Chief Magistrate
I rejoice, my friends, because that' policy has
been sustained by Congress I have no spirit of
exultation, and I know you have none, because
those against whom we have contended on this
subject have been defeated. No such contracted
partisan policy brings you here to night; and no
such motive moves we in what I have to say to
you. A far more patriotic impulse moves you
and me—we are gratified because the right has
triumphed—[cries of "good "good !"] —be.
cause principle has prevailed—because a mess'
ure just and right in itself, and fraught, as I
believe, with blessings to our common country,
has been adopted I shodhi weary you were I
to attempt on an occasion like this to discuss the '
measure itself. That 'I will not do, for it is fa. ,
miller - to you all. This much I may say, how
ever, that after a controversy of four months,
the question has been settled on the broad basis
of principle, and a principle which the Demo
cratic party have maintained—to wit, that Can
greet lists no right to interfere with the institu•
Lions of a Territory—that Congress had no tight
to judge of the constitution or State government ,
made by a Territory, but we must take it as it '
came to us That principle has been maintain
ed, and at the same time we have paid due re •
spect to the wishes of the people of Kansas on
the question of becoming a State or remaining
a Territory, by placing within their reach the
decision of that question. [Applause ] Con •
gram has disposed of this feud, and all else that
remains to be done belongs to the people of Kan
They came with a constitution and State
government and asked admission as a sovereign '
State upon terms of perfect 'etrality with the
other States of the Union. It e accepted that
government without qualification and without
criticism ; but their demand for land was caul-.
bitant. It was such a demand as was never made
before, and could not be granted by Congress.
We accordingly struck it out, and said to the
people of Kansas, if you take the same amount
of lands which we gave to Minnesota, than you
are in the Union, and the controversy is over.
If not, you must remain a Territory until your
population is equal to the ratio for one member
in the House of Representatives. In all this
Democratic principle has been preserved, and at
the same time the will of the people of Kansas
is to have unrestrained sway as to whether they
will become a State at this time or not. (Cheers
Fellowacitizens; permit me to say here, that,
when we reflect on the mighty influence which
the Democratic party has exercised in thitecoun
try ever since the organization of the govern
meat, it is difficult to determine which we should
most rejoice at—whether-it be that-this measure
is to reunite the Democratic party and secure its
future ascendancy, or whether it be that a mea
sure that has so long divided Congress and in
terrupted the public ;business has been perma
nently disposed of. - .For I believe that- the sue
(seas of the Democratic party and its liberal prin.
ciples involves now, as it has done for years,
the stability of our national confederacy—taps
plausel—the progress of oar great country, the
rights of the sovereign States, and the interests
and rights, religious and political, of all classes
of the inhabitants of our wide spread country
On this °catalpa it would be unbecoming in me
to go further into these topics. 1 feel deeply
that nothing which I have done in this struggle
has entitled me to the attention which you have
extended to me to-night. I feel how much I am
your debtor for this call. What I did was from
a sense of duty, coming from the State of the
President—the first President which Pennsylva•
nia has ever furnished to the Union. While I
was fully determined to act conscientiously and
vote according to my convictions of duty, I am
fieeto confess that I should have deferred much
of my own judgement rather than take an issue
with that venerable and wise man. From the
first of this atingle I felt a pride in sustaining
Pennsylvania's first Irreeident. [Applause ]
believed than, as I am sure now, that no man in
the land understood this question better than Mr
Buchanan, and upon no man's judgment could
the country more safely rely. [Applause ] In
a public career of forty years, beginning in the
I.4olifture of his native State, passing through
the lower house of Congress, and through the
Senate to a foreign mission, and finally in the
Presidential chair—in all these positions we have
seen the evidences of a calm, clear, disinterested
judgment and patriotic will ; and in them the
country had a guarantee that his action would be
governed by an anxious desire to do just what
the best interests of the whole country required
[Applause.} tederday was the anniversary of
the birthday of the American Government, for
George Washington was sworn into office on the
80th day of April—the day on which this bill
was passed. [Applause.] And I believe that
few measures have been adapted by the Congress
of the United States relating solely to our do
mestic affairs so fraught with common blessings
to the entire country as this is. [Applause )--
With these remarks, fellow-eitisene, which are
entirely impromptu, without reflection or *fedi.
ration, I return you my sincere thanks for the
Compliments yon have extended to me. [Cheers ]
