The Legislature Adjourns.
l.t:core•ms, K. T , Dec. 17, 1557.
The Territorial Legislature hue closed the
work of the special Emission. What they have
done I will sum up very briefly. They repeal
ed the law authorizing the Convention that
framed the Leeompton Constitution ; vetoed
by Stanton—passed over his veto. They pass
ed the Militia law; vetoed by Stanton—passed
over hie veto. They elected officers under it.
They provided for submitting the Lecompten
Constitution to a fait vote of the people on the
4th of January ; approved by Stanton. They
passed a low to punish election frauds; appro
ved by Stanton. They passed a joint resole
thin protesting against the Lecompton Coesti
tution, setting .forth the facts in connection
with it, and, as the representatives and Duvet u•
or of the Territory, demanded that Congress
shall not admit Kansas as a state under it;
signed by Stanton. They proposed a concur
rant resolution, re-affiirming the Topeka Con
stitution. declaring it to he the organic law
for the future State, chosen as such by a tow
jority of the people, and demanding admission
urger it as a Suite of the Union. This wan
placed in the shape of a concurrent resolution
to relieve Stamen from necessity of signieg
it. Both of these sets of resolutions me to be
tient by the Speaker of the Muse and Presi
dent of the Council to the President and each
Ipresiding officer of Congress. I
The Legisiature rejected the bill for elect
ing delegates to a Constitutional Convention.
They aeglected or refused to take any steps air
atibmitting the Topeka Constititt:on together
with the Leetimpton Constitution. They re
jected the bill providing for electing officer.
under the Lecompton Constitution in January,
to be the officers in case of the acceptance of
said Constitution by Congress.
Stith is the auto and substance of their la
bor.. They w.mid have done much more but
for their pludie to Stanton. The people will
be very much dissatissed with their action.
They I;ave'done some good things, however.
The Northern Democrats.
...Long before the meeting of Congrese we
foreshadowed the divison of potties pretty
much as things have turned out. '1 he subser
vient instruments of party will, who were cal
t u ,sting upon the whole body of northern Dem
en ratio representatives as merely so many
make weights in the southern ecale, have dis
covered that they were egregiously mietaken.
lt has surprised them to find that a portion a,
least of the Northern Democrats really have
opiiiiens of their own, and are net to be shifted
about to suit the convenience of anybody.—
Whoever carefully observed the eenditon of
parties in the Congress which repealed the
Missouri Compromise must have arrived at the
same conclusion. The Democratic majority
then was immense, and yet large numbers of
with.) Democratic members retorted to obey
the direction of their leaders.
Mush as we are in the habit of tenting yf
national parties, the thing at present, seems to
be almost imaginary. While the Democrat.

the one being the southern State rights organ',

minority of the whole, conquered its way

abject submission of the northern masses coup

When the Demoerhtic and Whig parties
were in their prime, each contained two tae•
tions in the north on the slavery question.—
One 01 these was more or less opposed to the
peculiar institution," and the other did not
care a button what was dune about the tiegroes.
The course of events has greatly strengthened
the former element, as the ground which the
northern Democratic array is beginning to oc.
copy clearly indicates. Indeed, the north has
been all along fur more anti slavery than has
been generally supposed. The old conserva
tives on the subject were possessed of a latent
feeling, which every day is developing. It is
clear that our free institutions breed up an ir•
resistible aversion to all phases of oppression.
It has been less strongly manifested in the
northern Democrats, than in other portions of
of our people, hence they hove assumed the
position of mediator between the extremes.—

Capture of a Huge Panther.
On the ult., Mr. Samuel P. Hart, of Ap•
pleton, weut out with a neighbor to look fur
stray colt, taking with him his trusty rifle, for
the puipose of killing any wild game he might,
chance to see. After travelling seine two miles
or more, ho came upon the fresh track of some
wild animal, and as the tracks were large and
singular, ho gave up looking for the pony, and
with hie excellent dog tramped off in search of
an adventure. In a short time the dog treed
the game, but before Hart could reach the spot
they were off again. Pretty soon, however,
they stopped, and when Hart came up, the dog

glue on the Kansas question.
Nei/ PAY TO Cotionesnmeir.—The New
York Pinter understandii that the members of
the new Congress wiil probably draw nine
months' pay tin the meeting of the first session
thin week. The members of the house are hal.
cried at $:3110(1 per annum. The term. of the
present Congress times from the 4th of March
last, and the construction put upon Ole law is
that three fourths the first year of the term;
will he payable, it demmated, nu the tom-
nienceinent of actual service, the first Nlontlay
in December; if so, the treasury w••ill be drawn
upon It once for $500,060 or itiOU,ooo fur
this object.
snatch from Washington says that Mr. Nacre•
tary Cobb hue decided to adopt three per cent•
as the rate of tautest for the Treasury totes.
Six millions are to be issued immediately, iu
sums of three different amounts, viz: one hun
dred, five hundred, and one thousand dollars.
The engraving of the plate for the first will Le
executed by Carpenter, of Philadelphia; those
for the °there by Hatch, of New York.
Kansas question begins to look critical. It
is understood that three Democratic Senators
will adhere to Mr. Douglas. According to the
Democratic computation, the Senate is now
composed of 27 Democrats. 20 Republicans,
and 0 Americans. If the last two classes go
together on thia question, it makes twenty
five against thirty seven. Transfer MO. Dou
glas and his three admitted colleagues, and
the roost stands twenty trine to thirty three.
A change of only two more creates a tie, giv
big the casting vote to the Vice Preaident.
The !liaise to composed of 12$ Democrats,
92 Republicans, and 14 Americans. Of the
Democrats, 03 are from the tree States.—
Should one half of the latter refuse to go with
the South, and the defections already are said
to be pretty numerous, the Adteinistration
would find itself in tt minority. They had bet•
ter be careful how they ''read out of the party"
at this rate.

the Mauch Chunk Casette, gives the condi.
lion of hfrairs in the Locotoco party, in Penn
