that Popery is receiving damage in one of

generally, the men of Belgium are generally
skeptical. Some families also doubt, who
do not feel sufficient anxiety about their

A NEW INSTITUTION IS to be founded
at Paris, where the education of younr , b la
dies from England can be carried on, free
from Romibh influence, and under the care
of faithful Protestant pastors. This move
ment is the happy result of the bigoted
movement of the Bishop of Arras, and I
trust . will become general throughout France.
A great work is doing by tracts there,

J. W.
Washington Correspondence.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8, 1856
One week has elapsed since Congress met, land
yet the first step toward the practical progress
of legislation has yet to be taken. Neither branch
has ordered 'the customary printing of the Presi
dent's Message and accompanying documents; so
that if newspaper enterprise had not lifted the
veil from official affairs, the public would still be
ignorant of the state of governmental .transac
tions during the past year. This dead-lock has
been occasioned by the revival of the same sec
tional questions which jarred the deliberations of
Congress at the last session, and served to stir up
that partizan strife which has so much tended to
alienate and embitter the feelings between the
North and South. The President's Message being
mainly devoted to self-justification, and to a de
fenee of his Kansas policy, necessarily excited
the resentment of those on the one side, who felt
his imputations upon their, motives and principles
to be unjust; and enlisted the warm advocacy of
those ou the other side, who approve his action.
Consequently, the Senate appropriated every day
in a discussion which has now only fairly begun,
and which may extend itself far beyond the an
ticipation with which it opened, under a passing
impulse of disturbed feeling.
In the House, Mr. Whitfield's case came up in
the nature of things, upon the presentation of his
credentials as delegate from Kansas. Objection
was at once raised by Mr. Grow, of Pennsylvania,
to his qualification, upon the ground, that the
territorial authority under which the election was
held was not valid, and therefore the election it
self was null and void. He argued this point on
the first day at much length, and with more than
common ability. Mr. Phelps, of Missouri, re
plied in behalf of Mr. .Whitfield, repeating the
train of reasoning which had been pursued when
the question was diecuSsed in August. After
these speeches, the House came suddenly to a
vote, when the friends of Mr. Whitfield were de
feated by seven majority. This was on Monday
last. The result was a surprise to both sides ;to
the. Democracy, who were confident of success
from expected divisions among their opponents ;
and to the Republicans, who had acted without
concert, and gained some support that was quite
unexpected. In order to clinch the triumph, Mr,
Grow followed up his first movement by the usual
parliamentary motion ; but his adversaries, who
had by this time recovered from the shock of a
tempbrary 'defeat, rallied their forces, and
rected their efforts to' a postponement of the final
test, until their absentees, who were numerous
enough to decide it favorably, could be brought in.
This game was pursued from Monday until
Friday, when, having recruited their strength,
the "filibustering" process, -as it is popularly
called, was abandoned, and the House voted on
Mr. Grow's motion, which was defeated by three
majority. Then the Republicans, who had been
compelled to bear the application of pirliamen
tary tactics, proposed to turn the tables upon
their opponents, in order to stave off the final re
sult. As soon as the announcement was, made,
that the Whitfield men had triumphed, Mr. Gid
dings moved a call of the House, one of the
modes of delay and distraction, which had been
practiced by the other side since Monday. The
proposition created universal good humor, being
the best practical commentary that could have been
offered, and one which called out a spontaneous
burst of merriment. In this temper, the House
concluded to postpone the last trial until Tues
day, and then it proceeded to draw seats by lot.
As luck would have it, - the name of James W.
Whitfield was the first drawn from the box,
then both sides gave way to unrestrained fun.
These little incidents, so unimportant in them
selves, have had the effect of distributing good
feeling around the House, and of relieving some
of that stiffness and reserve which recent politi
cal events had encouraged. The public business
will be much benefitted by such friendly disposi
tion. Little doubt is now entertained of Whit
field's admission. The vacancies at the last session,
since filled by Democrats, and the co-operation of
Mr. Fillmore's Northern friends, secure it beyond
reasonable contingency.
The recent course of President Pierce, in die-
missing some of the most obnoxious Fedora
officials in Kansas, taken in connexion with the
judicious parts of Gov. Geary's polioy, have in
spired confidence that peace will be at length es
tablished in that unhappy Territory, and the out
rages which disgraced humanity and a Christian
age, will be summarily arrested. If this policy
was extended so far as to embrace the dismissal
of Judge Lecompte, who has spread terror every
w,here by the exercise of judicial tyranny, it
would consummate the good work of justice, and
restore a reign of peace and security. This pur
pose was entertained at the last session, and only
deferred from the apprehension that it might be
regarded as a concession to the coercive measure
threatened by the House, in refusing supplies for
the army. Stronger reasons exist now than did
then; because, added to the great wrong of in
carcerating men for "constructive treason "—a
crime unknown to the Constitution or laws—he
has released upon nominal bail a desperado whose
hands were red with innocent blood, shed almost
before the eyes of the Governor of the Territory.
In all these angry contentions between sectional
interests, Kansas has suffered, whether one or
the other side succeeded. It is time she should
have repose, and that the superior advantages
with which Providence has blessed that soil,
should be so developed as to diffuse happiness
among an industrious population, and to con
tribute something to the aggregate prosperity
of the whole Union.
The rumor has been current throughout the
past week, that the Department of State had been
tendered to Gem Cass, by Mr. Buchanan. It is
unfounded. No offer of any kind has yet been
made, and the President-elect has . committed him
self against development in this respect, for
nearly two months to come. Still the impression
prevails very strongly, that this,seleetion may be
eventually adopted. Mr. Buchanan and Gen.
Cass were long competitors for the Presidential
nomination, an d it is fitting that, in the close of
their careers, Bo rne becoming
compliment should
obliterate any formor recollection of
It seems to he now settled, upon the best in
formation which has reached here from Wheat
land, that Mr. ,Buchannn has determined not to
invite a member of his Cabinet from Pennsylva
nia, as has been persistently urged upon him.
This determination proceeds doubtless from the
difficulty of discriminating satisfactorily betiieen
the host of friends presented, and of choosing
without manifesting what might be regarded an
invidious preference. Hence, he has decided to
avoid this difficulty, and perhaps wisely for his
own ease. Another point considered to be set
tled is, that he will bring into the Administration
one member from the old Whig party, which
united in his support at the recent election. Mr.
Preston, of Kentucky, is indicated as the repre
resentative man of that idea; but he has not, of
course '
been designated. Mr. Buchanan's recent
speech to the students of Franklin College, fur
nishes a key to his intended policy, and verifies,
literally, the suggestions contained in my last
letter. His aim will be to bring back the Govern
ment to its old paths and ancient dignity, and to
restore an era of moderation, which departed
when the excesses of party began to run riot
nearly thirty years ago. In this effort, Mr. Buchan
an will have the sympathies and the support of all
fair men, without respect to political bias.
Whether we be Whigs, Democrats, Republicans,
Americans, or anything else, we should be equal
ly interested in maintaining the honor and wel
fare of the country, and in giving the adminis
tration of the Government that elevated tone by
which the respect and regard of other nations
will be attracted and ensured. Mr. Buchanan
has passed that period of life when mere expert-
of state-craft offer any temptation to am
bition. Instead of dashing out in a hazardous
career, he seeks to pursue a quiet and dignified
course, illustrating it by his personal character and
In dispatching a special commissioner to New
Grenada, the Government here designed to em
phasize its estimation of the difficulties in dis
pute, and to promote a speedy settlement of the
claims occasioned by the bloody riot at. Panama,
in April last. It has become apparent, too, that
neither the central authority at Bogota, nor the
State of Panama, are prepared to afford that
security across the Isthmus, and at the termini,
which is necessary to American life and property.
Under these circumstances, Mr. Marcy has pre
pared a projet, proposing a grant of land along
the route of the railroad, under the jurisdiction
of the United States; to make Panama and As
pirivall free cities, obligated to furnish a munici
pal police for the desired security; to settle all
the claims and indemnity for losses sustained in

such a basis, as will relieve the onerous tax now
attempted to be imposed. The residentminister,
Mr. Bowlin, is not superseded ; and Mr. Morse,
the special commissioner, is instructed to return

Oua COURESPONDENCE.—We think that, our
readers will be well pleased with our letters
from Washington. The writer is a gentleman
well acquainted with men and things at the seat of
Government, familiar with our public affairs, and
of great independence and vigor of mind. He
may not always view things as we should our
selves, nor may he show, in every, case, the pre
ferred loadings and partialities of our readers.
But he will give facts, and reflections, and food
for thought. We shall be much the wiser for
reading him carefully, though we hold our own
opinions still.
Pressinzur's MESSAGE.—We present as
usual, this dochment in full. It may not be our
place to criticise it. Some parts of it we do not
like, as a State paper, emanating from the Head of
the Government. . The President may exhibit his
own policy and defend it, but as President of
the United States, he , should be neither a political
partizan nor a sectionalist.
THE STATE PAPERB.—It is our purpose to , give
more extended synopses than formerly, of the
Departments. Every man should be well informed
on such matters. Our boys now growing, are
soon to be the governing power : and to vote in
telligently, and make good magistrates, legisla
tors, and executors of law, they should be trained
in knewledge.
North Branch Canal.
This State improvement is so far complete
that boats pass through to the New York line,
and thence to Elmira. This affords water
transportation for the anthracite coal of Penn
sylvania directly to the interior of New. York,
and connects'the canals of the two States. We
give the following schedule of distances be
tween Philadelphia and Buffalo, by this route.
Schuylkill Navigation to Bowling, 64
Union Canal from Beading to Middletown, 77
Susquehanna Canal to Northumberland, 62
North Branch Extension to State Line, 162
Junction Canal to Elmira, 17
Chemung Canal to : Seneca Lake, 23
Seneca Lake to Geneva, 45
From Geneva to Montezuma, 21

Philadelphia is thus connected, by water cora

Lakes and Canada.
Tyrone and Clearfield Railroad
This important feeder to the Pennsylvania Rail
road is likely to be speedily built. The grading
of twenty miles, extending from Tyrone to Philips
burg, was let on the 21st ult. ' Work, it is sup
posed, will be commenced immediately.
The survey of the Lock Haven and Tyrone road,
which is to connect the Sunbury and Erie with
the Pennsylvania, has just been completed, and
a letting of the work is expected to take place
before long.

Nebraska Territory.
Hon. Bird:B. Chapman, delegate in Congress
from Nebraska, , arrived in this city yesterday,,
direct from. Omaha city, which place he left on
the 111th ult. He re: , orts eyerything quiet and
prosperous throughout the Territory. Emigra
tion is pouring in from all quarters, and the coun
try settling
,up very fast. The Indians, with
whom treaties have been made and reserves as
signed, are disposed to reside on their reserva
tions, and have this year done considerable in rais
ing for themselves cor,ri for the Winter's supply.
The Pawnees and Pinions, who inhabit the lands
in the Western and North-Western parts of the
Territory, never having made treaties with the
United States, and consequently are receiving no
annuities from the government, are a little dis
posed,to make some trouble by.claiming some of
the Wide ceded by the Otehha:s to the Malted
States. The Sioux on the upper Missouri, since
the chastisement given then by General Harney
last year, seem very friendly disposed, and no
further difficulty is apprehended from them.
Nebraska, with her fertile soil, and position as
the gateway on the great route to the Pacific,
must in a short time become one of the most
flourishing Territories, if not States, in the Union.
Washington Union.
Kansas News.
correspondence, published in the Washington
Union, conveys the intelligence that the United
States regular troops are about to be removed
from the Territory of Kansas. The reason given
for this is, that peace prevails. A letter from
General Persifer F. Smith, dated Fort Leaven
worth, November 11th, says that " the laws have
again been put in operation, and the administra
tion of justice revived." He adds:
" Deserted farms are again occupied, fences re 7
built, fields put under cultivation, and the ruins
of houses destroyed by fire, replaced by more du
rable habitations; the roads are covered with
travelers, unarmed and secure;.and the towns
thronged with persons,selling their produce, and
purchasing from the, stores... All these evidences
of restored order have enabled me, with the con
currence of the Governor of the Territory, to re
call the troops from the active duty on which
they have been employed, and to establish them
again at their proper posts, where they are to
pass the Winter. As.there are no secure prisons
yet built for the territorial authorities to use in
the administration of justice, at hie request :there
will remain, at, the disposition of the Governor, a
few men to guard prisoners in the custody of the
law, and for other such contingencies."

Terrible Railroad Accident at Affiance.
• We are called upon to record a terribly fatal
railroad accident, which marred on Monday
evening, the Bth inst., about seven o'clock, at
Alliance, Stark County, Ohio, the point where the
Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and, Chicago Railroad
crosses the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Railroad.
The passenger train of the former road, which
left Allegheny City at three o'clock in the after
noon, had stopped as.usual Alliance for sup
per, and was just starting Westward when the
train on the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Road came
up and ran directly through the other train,
smashing two cars and killing nine persons, sev
eral others being seriously injured.
The engineer of the Cleveland and Pittsburgh
Railroad had not been seen since the occurrence
of the accident.
One of the passenger cars ran through the ro
tunda of the station house, and another is now
lying in the puhlic reception room. The rotunda
is torn to pieces.
The accident is the most serious one, so far as
the loss of human life is concerned,, which, has
ever occurred upon this road.—Diapatch. '

Having had occasion to examine the Notes on the Gospels,
by the Rev. M. W. Jacobus, D. D., we have no-hesitation iii
recommending them, as sound in their doctrine, sudjudi
cious in their exposition. As many erroneous books' aru
abroad, we particularly desire this valuable Commentary to
hare circulation in our churches and schools.
• JOHN 111..K.REBS,

This work is characterized by sound learning, sound doc

serious spirit of piety. It is much needed.

I am especially delighted to find that you persevere with
your Commentary on the New Teetament; and from its ad•
mirable execution, I am not surprised, although.very happy

In my opinion; you are doing for the Church and the
cause of truth, a very valuable service, in the preparation
and publication of your Commentaries on the New Testa
ment. They fill a place which it is most important to have
Shed. They are read by the members of Bible Classes, and
by teachers. and by pupils in Sabbath. Schools, because in
them they find, in a few words, the exposition and informa
tion they
find a general circulation. N. L. lUCE.

This Commentary is destined, as we believe, to a very
wide circulation. It is the fruit of protracted and laborious
studies, by one who joins to a thorough Oriental and Bibli
cal scholarship, the spirit of a humble mind. It is full of
comprehensive, profound, and spiritual views of truth. For
purpose') of Sunday School instruction, it combines several
advautagee never before offered to the public in a book of
this kina, which will give it the pi &eminence in tho eyes of
Sabbath School teachers, while its correct exposition, and
simple, clear views of thAruth, will endear it to every pious
heart:—Genesee Evangelist.
To a mind vigorous by original endowment, he adds the
varied stores of sacred learning, analytical powers of a high
order, a sound judgment, a severe literary taste,e.deeptoned
piety, an earnest love'of truth, a familiarity with biblical
places, objects, and customs, from personal observation;
while the style in which lie clothes his thoughts is clear,
strong, compact, and epigrammatio.—Biblietheca Basra-
The good
.taste, the correct and varied scholarship, the
iound judgment, and the attractiveptety exhibited in them,
(the series,) make it not only a duty, but a pleasure, to com
mend the work to those who desire to study the record et
the Saviour's earthly life.—Princeton Review, Oct., 1865.
The literature of this Gospol (John) has, of late, become
exceedingly rich„and gives to a recent commentator rare
advantages. • * * Ile (Dr. Jacobue) gives tho result of
critical study, without critical details, thereby rendering his
Notes more generally useful. From our examination, we
hesitate not to pronounce it in advance of any other Amer
icon work on the subject —Southern Methodist Review.
This third volume, containing the Gospel of Jobn, has
been long looked for with eipectation, by all who have pe
rused the two that preceded it. The learned Profeseor has
woll maintained his reputation; his elucidations of the moat
important portion of revelation being marked by the same
extensive research, clear judgment, happy illustration,
comprehensiveness, and earnestness, which are so charac
teristic of his former efforts.—Tryroate Globe.
The large and increasing circulation of these Notes,
shows how much such a work was a want in our church,

These Questions, so highly commended. are acknowledged
to be the best in use. They draw out the sense of the pas
sage so as to interest the pupil. They also introduce the
Questions of the Westminster Catechism most attractively.
Such as have learned the Catechism are here exercised in
in connexion with the Scripture passages which prove and
illustrate it; while to those who know nothing of the-Cate
chism the questions taken from it are always of the best
kind. and can be answered in their own words.
" We have adopted the Plates and Questions in our Sab
bath School, and are just about finishing the first volume.
They have our most unqualified approval. The Catechism
is happily introduced, enabling many to learn and become
familiar with It, without making it an unpleasant task—
which is an important consideration. I hope it may have
anextenslve circulation in Sabbath Schools." —Ell. NEWKIRK.

, CURED, Without Pain or Surgical Operation.
The readers of the Banner and Adrccate will recollect I
published a notice last Winter, headed "The last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering Persons," in which Immure:ad
was the only chance they would ever have of getting cured.,
and all who desired the cure should either send for it by
mail or call themselves before the 10th of March, as on that
day I had made arrangements to resign my profession, and
retire from the practice. Since the 10th, I have personally
consulted forty, and sent the cure by mail to sixty hull
viduals, In every instance perfect satiefaction has been
rendered. In justice to all who are "so'unfortunate as to
stutter or stammer yet, I have thought proper to give
another opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to send me s2o,' irehich is less
than my usual fee,) and I will immediately send them my
cure. By so doing they save the expense of traveling. I
am a reeponsible man, and if my cure is not effectual I will
agree to refund the money. Recollect. this cure never fails.
Address Dr. WYCKOFF, Box 740, Pittsburgh Post Mice.
There has been a floating population of imposters travel
ing the country, profeseing to cure impediments of speech
by my system, and many have had the audacity to advertise
in my name
' and give the Darner! of men for reference whom
they .never knew or 'saw. When persons who stammer
called, those Men would represent me, and in several in
stances produce a certificate purporting to be mine, vesting
in them full power and authority to practice as my Agents.
I have frequently warned the Public of these men, as they
are not in full possession of my system, and cannot cure.
Through 'attiring perseverance, X arrested two of them,
and others will sooner or later share the same fate. This
cure for Stuttering or Stammering is one of my own
discovery, for which I have a copy right, secured by law,
and have successfully practised the same for the term of
nine years.
My references are of the highest order; such as the Medi
cal Faculty of New,York, Pluhtdelphia, and the University
of Virginia, all the Press of Pittsburgh, Washington,
Greensburg. and Uniontown, Pa., besides fifty thousand
persons in, different parte of the country.
This cure for Stuttering and Stammering is performed in
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
attending it. •
The beauty , of all this is, it will cure children of five, and
adults at the age of one hundred years. A person who is
cured by It, can, never again stutter, even if they try. I of
fer to forfeit $lO,OOO If any person can ever afterwards Stet•
ter, by application of the cure. •
It was formerly customary to announce, that no pay
would be required unless a perfect cure was performed.
That was done to show the people there would be no risk In
giving me a trial. But now, inasmuch as the leading citi
zens of Pittsburgh, know my cure never fails, it would be
superfluous to make another such announcement.
