In 1829 the Democrats in the Legisla

vote for the Abolition o Of Slavery in the
District of Columbia.
In 1862 the same kind of resolutions

In 1829 the Democracy locked upon
slavery, ,as an 'evil. In 1862 they bow
down and worship at the heathen shrine
as unitedly as their fathers were opposed
to it. Degenerate sons of worthy sires.
Shame on Them.
Twenty-two Reßiesetitatives from the
Free States voted against expelling Sla
very from the National Capital:` : The bill
was no mere abolition scheme. It pro
posed compensation to masters. It scru
pulously respected the interests of holders
of negro stook. It was framed in express
accordance with often-repeated petitions
of the (great mass of the people of the
District, and yet uien represetaing free
constituencies opposed it ! Why ? Will
it be contended thatthe continued exis
tence of Slavery at Washington is desira
ble Will any one pretend that the
right of making the Federal Capital free
does not exist ? Will ik be claimed that
the rights cf loyal citizens' areastailed in

Below we copy from the Harrisburg Tel
leuraph its description of a Cane lately
presented to Hon. ISAAC BENSON. The
presentation is a mark of the high respect
with which our able Senator was regarded
by his brother officers, and a cotnpli
ment not only to him but also to the
trict which be has so faithfully represent
ied. His course in the Senate l has been
marked with superiOr legislative ability.
Not content with the more showy and too
much practised career of speech making
upon every eiivial subject, he has - been
1 foUbd among the active , workingmem
bers ; although, when needed, his voice
has been heard always in maintaining
what he conceived to be just 'and right.
His promotion to the head of ,the Com
mittee of Finance during the Session was
the highest and most honorable position
'in the gift of the Speaker. Tho motto :1
"All men are created equal" may not suit
the fancy of some of our "union" friends;
but this will not be very surprising as
truth has never been one of, their partic
ular fancies. He has now returned home
with 'the thanks and well-wishes of his
constituents as well as of those with whom
he has been more intimately Connected
during the past three years. "Honors
await the faithful steward." ''
SERIOUS CANING AFFAIR—This morn
ing, while Senator Benson was engaged as ,
usual in the discharge of his arduous du-1
ties as chairma!n of•the Finance . Commit-1
tee of the Senate, he was approached in 1
the Senate Chamber by several individ
uals armed with a large bludgeon, who,
after a few parliamentary demonstrations,
caned the Senator most handsomely. The
bludgeon, upon examination: proved to be
a fine piece 'of eiony, surmounted with al
gold top, elaborately carved, upon which
was this inscription :
HoN. ISAAC BENSON,
From the officers of the,
* • Pennsylvania Senate. *
* "All men are created equal." *
The Honorable Senator at last 'accounts
expressed himself .kighly pleased.:with the
affair, and May we not hope his leasure
will increase when, in returning to his
constituents vfter a three years campaign
in defence of their rights. he is welcomed
with the hard•seined salutation of gg well
doue, good and faithful servant.",
By-the-way, it was two of Fremont's
gun-boats which saved our whole army,
engaged' in the Pittsburg Battle the first
day, from being captured by the Rebels.
Remember that, ye cavilers of Fremont,.
Is it not a fact that the patent.Demo
antic Papers are now much more con•
cerned about abolitionists than they are
about their country, and have more to
say against Wendell Phillips and his
handfull of followers than they have of
the leaders of the rebellion ?
Chairman of the Committee of Ways and
Means in Congress, calculates that, if the
war is prosecuted energetically, our army
can be reduced to one hundred thousand
men by the end of the summer, and that
the revenues of the country will be large
enough to pay the interest
,on the public
debt and establish a large sinking .fund.
If the Government should conclude to lay
the burden of the war upon the men who
are now in the rebellion against it,. by a
confiscation act, be was sure that no more
taxes would have to be laid upon the loyal
people•of the free states. ,
Synopsis of Latest New l s.
From the Valley of the Shenandoah
we have news of the retreat of Jackson
and Ashbv with their rebel forces. It is
doubtful whether or not they will have
any more fighting in that valley. 1
A fierce skirmish occurred beforeYoi•k
town on the 16th, in which.q . uite a [Mal
her of the Vermont boys were killed and
woinded. There have beetrno 'very de
cisive advances on either side. - Our
sharpshooters are picking off thhir gun- 1
ners and barrassiog them in various ways,
while McClellan is perfecting his prow
atlas for a general assault. It is stated'
that the Rebels have a force of 100,000,1
and that they are commanded by. Jeff.
Davis. Our force is estimated at from
150,000 to 200,000.
. We have details of the opening of the
attack on Fort Pillow by the squadron
under Com. Foote. A correspondent,
who dates his letter Sunday, the 14th
inst., says there were, acoording to vari
ous accounts, from 6,000 to 8,000 troops
at the place, butrthat they had only one
heavy gun on the water batteries. This
Fort is three miles above Memphis, and
should it be taken—which we have no
doubt it will—the city falls into the
hands of the Unionists.,; After Fort Pil
loW, there are no forts that will prove
any serious inconvenience to Cum. Foote
entering New Orleans.
The Mobile Advertiser, of April 5, says
ofour Gulf Fleet: "They now directly
menace New Orleans with attack. The
newspapers from that city have •
gence that between twenty and thirty
Yankee men-of-war are in the Mississippi
river below the city, and of courso below'
its defensive works. Beside this formid
able flotilla in the river, a majestic fleet
rides under the lee of Ship Island. These
vast preparations are not being perfected
to remain unemployed, and we may rest
assured that the bl6w, strong and heavy,
will soon be struck."
Gen. Fremont has intelligence from
Gen. 11.1ilroy that the rebels, numbering
about 3,500 strong, \ with two batteries,
including two rifled guns, are construct
ing fortifications upon the crest of the
Shenandoah. Reliefs of 500 Men are
working day and night.
