position to the bill, and Mr. YY'ORTHINGTON

Mr. GRAY spoke in favor of the bill. 

Mr. II ELM would vote for the bill if, upon fur- 
ther consideration, he found he could do so with- 
out violating his oath to support the constitution; 
but he must have a little time to investigate and 
consider, and that was the reason he had this 
morning moved to re commit the bill to the com- 
mittee on the Judiciary. He was against all lot- 
teries and all gambling, and only wished to be 
satisfied that me bill did not violate the consti- 
tution, and then he would vote for it. 

The motion that the bill have its third reading 
to morrow at 9 Tj o’clock was then adopted. 

And then the House took a recess until three 
o’clock.

The Naturalization Laws. — The following is 
the bill for the modification of the Naturaliza- 
tion and Immigration Laws, which has been in- 
troduced in the U. S. Senate by Hon. Stephen 
Adams, of Mississippi, who was elected as a 
Democrat,- but who will hardly be henceforth 
permitted to enjoy full fellowship with the for- 
eignized Democracy, who seem to think that one 
Dutchman or Irishman is worth a dozen native 
born Americans. It was read twice, and referred 
to the Committee on the Judiciary: 

“Be it enacted. That no alien who may arrive 
in the United States, after the passage of this 
act, shall be permitted to become a citizen of the 
United States, unless he shall, on making appli- 
cation to be admitted to the rights of citizenship, 
declare on oath, and prove to the satisfaction of 
the court having jurisdiction of the case, that he 
has been a resident of the United States twenty- 
one years continuously prior to the time of ma- 
king such application; and he shall not be per- 
mitted to make his declaration of his intention to 
become a citizen of the United States, until he 
shall have resided in the United States ten years 
at least. 

Sec. 2. That any alien, being a free white 
person, who shall have proved a residence of 
twelve months in the United States, shall be en- 
titled to all the protection of the Government, and 
be allowed to inherit and hold and transmit real 
estate, so long as he remains w ithin the limits of 
the United States, in the same manner as though 
he were a citizen of the United States. 

Sec. 3. That from and after the passage of 
this act, aliens shall be admitted to citizenship in 
a Circuit or District Court of the United States, 
in some one of the States or Territories of the U. 
States, and in no other Court. 

Sec. 4. That it shall not be lawful for any 
captain, master, agent or commander of any mer- 
chantman, or other vessel sailing under the laws 
of the United States, or of any foreign vessel 
coming to the United States, to bring into any 
port or into the waters of the United States, or to 
land on any of the territories of the United 
States, any alien or person of foreign birth, un- 
less such alien, or person of foreign birth shall 
deposit with such captain, master, agent or com- 
mander a certificate, properly authenticated, 
from the United States Consul or Commercial 
Agent of the port from which such person em- 
barked, certifying that he is of good character, 
and has never been convicted of any criminal of- 
fence, or been a public pauper; and any captain, 
master, agent or commander of any vessel who 
may violate the provisions ofthis act may be deem- 
ed guilty of misdemeanor, and upon conviction 
thereof by any Court of competent jurisdietion, 
shall be punished by a fine.of five hundred dol- 
lars for each offense. 

Sec 5. That all acts and parts of acts con- 
flicting with the provisions of this act, be and the 
same are hereby repealed. 



[From tbs St. Louis Republican.) 

The case of Drcd Scott vs. Sanford, a suit for 
freedom now pending on appeal in the United 
States Supreme Court, was before our own courts 
under the name of Scott vs. Emerson, and will 
be found reported in 15 Mo. Rep. p. 576. The 
facts are briefly as follows: Dr. Emerson, the 
owner of Dred Scott, was a surgeon in the army, 
who being ordered from St. Louis to Rock Island, 
in Illinois, took his servants with him, and de- 
tained them in servitude from 1834 to 1836, and 
then removed them to Fort Snelling, and detain- 
ed them until 1838, when they were returned to 
St. Louis. 

Our Supreme Court, Gamble dissenting, held 
that the slave returning to this State, although 
he might have been illegally held in slavery in 
Illinois, or in the Territory, and might perhaps 
there have sued for and obtained his freedom, 
vet upon his return, he was remitted to his status 
in this State, and that our courts would not en- 
force the laws of Illinois, and would not confis- 
cate the property of her own citizens at the com- 
mand of a foreign law, and that the fact of the 
suit for freedom showed that the defendant had 
not assented to the freedom of his slave. 

The suit now pending upon appeal was brought 
in the Circuit Court for this district in the usual 
method of trespass for an assault. The defendant 
pleaded, in abatement of the jurisdiction, that the 
plaintiff was his slave, and was not a citizen of 
the State of Missouri, and therefore not entitled 
to bring suit in the United States Court. This 
plea was overruled upon demurrer, and the facts 
submitted to the court, which followed the decis- 
ion of the Supreme Court of the State, and from 
this decision an appeal was taken. 

The question, therefore, arising upon the rec- 
ord before the court would seem to be: 1st, Is a 
negro a citizen within the meaning of the Con- 
stitution so as to be entitled to all the privileges 
of the several States, and thus entitled to sue for 
his freedom in the Courts of the United States! 
2nd — YV ill the courts of the United States under, 
take to give force and effect to the laws of one 
State within the limits of another, by deciding 
upon the status of the party as effected by the 
laws of a foreign State, or will it hold that the 
party returning in slavery, his status must be de- 
termined by the laws of the State in which he 
resides, and that the domestic and social condition 
of the persons domiciled within its territory must 
be decided by the laws of the State, except so 
far as such laws conflict with the Constitution of 
the United States, and does not touch the sub- 
ject? 

The last view was that taken by the Supreme 
Court in the case of Strader vs. Graham, 10 How 
R 72, and from that opinion the courtis not like- 
ly to recede. Consequently the constitutionality 
of the Missouri compromise is not necessarily 
involved in the case before the court, nor likely 
to be decided. The important question would 
seem to be, can a negio be a citizen within the 
terms of the constitution, so that a negro from 
Massachusetts can live in South Carolina, if he 
sees fit, claiming that, being a citizen of Massa- 
chusetts, he is therefore a citizen of the United 
States. This position has been denied by the 
lower courts in several States, but wo are not 
aware that it has ever been decided by any court 
of last resort. YV’a await, therefore, tho decis- 
ion of the case with a great deal of interest.

American Ratification Meeting. 

Pursuant to public notice, the American 
members of the Legislature, and many other 
Americans, assembled last nigkt in mass meet- 
ing, in the Hall of the House of Represen. 
tatives, for the purpose of ratifying the nomina- 
tion, recently made by the American National 
Convention at Philadelphia, of MILLARD 
FILLMORE and ANDREW JACKSON DON- 
ELSON as candidates for President and Vice 
President of the United States. 

Tho meeting was called to order by Col. Brad- 
ford, of Bracken, upon whose motion, Gen. Hus- 
ton, Speaker of the House of ReprosenUtives, 
was appointed chairman. 

The chairman, having taken his seat, announ- 
ced the object of the meeting. 

On motion of Senator Conklin, of Grayson, 
Senator Kohlbass, of Clarke, was appointed Sec- 
retary . 

Senator Wadsworth, of Mason, moved that a 
committee of five be appointed to prepare resolu- 
tions expressive of the sense of the meeting; and 
the motion being adopted, the chairman appoint- 
ed Messrs. Wadsworth and Sudduth of the Sen- 
ate, and Messrs. G. F. Lee, Bodlcy, and Worth- 
ington of the House, to constitute said commit- 
tee. 

In a short timo Mr. Wadsworth, from the com- 
mittee, reported the following resolutions: 

Resolved, That the members of the General 
Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, 
belonging to the American partv, hail with satis- 
faction the names of Millard Fillmorz and An- 
drew Jackson Donklson, and accord to the nom- 
ination their unqualified approval. 

Resolved, That Millard Fillmore, our candidate 
for the Presidency, for assurance of his wisdom 
in government, his devotion to the Union of the 
States, his purity of purpose, and tho nationality 
of his principles, can point to an administration 
onlv less illustrious than that of Washington. 

Resolved, That Andrew Jackson Donelson, our 
candidate for the Vice Presidency, brought up in 
the family and confidence of the noble patriot 
whose honored name he bears, has already proven 
that he inherits that patriot's love of the Union 
and detestation of its foes. 

Resolved, That with such a ticket, and the 
platform upon which it is preseuted, we may 
surely anticipate from the past history and public 
virtues of such men, a steadfast adherence to the 
Union and the Constitution, and the rights of the 
States. 

Resolved, That “full high advancing” the 
American banner, “not a star obseured, not a 
stripe polluted,” wc pledge ourselves to carry 
the names of Fillmore and Donelson before the 
people of Kentucky for their ratification. 

The resolutions were read, and received with 
lively demonstrations of approbation and de- 
light. 

Mr. Wadsworth being then called for by the 
assemblage, came forward and pronounced a 
most eloquent and just eulogium upon the nom- 
inees of the party — Fillmore and Donelson. 

Mr. Hanson being called up for a speech, de- 
clined to address the audience, haring, he said, 
been speaking all the winter upon all subjects; 
but moved that the Chairman (Gen. Huston) be 
requested to address the meeting. This propo- 
sition was received with rapturous applause. 

Gen. Hustbii rose and said he had not read a 
speech since he wa9 a boy, but he would read one

ively, the patriotic letter of Hon. Garrett Davis,

astically endorsing the nominees of tho National 
Conventioni re-affinning the principles of the

that we will do everything in our power to secure 
them the electoral vote of Kentucky.

ality and patriotism of the American party; and

and disseminating their political principles. 

The Council then adjourned. 

JAS. MONROE, Pres't. 

G. W. Lewis, Sec. 

O' The Black Republican papers are endeav- 
oring to make it appear that the platform adopted 
by the American Convention, was carried by a 
sectional vote. An analysis of the vote, pub- 
lished by ttie Newark Eagle, shows that the dele- 
gations from New Hampshire, Rhode Island, 
North Carolina, Arkansas, and Illinois, were 
equally divided, one-half voting for and the other 
half against the new platform. Of the 13 Mas- 
sachusetts delegates, 5 voted for nnd 8 against 
it; of those from N. Y., 32 for and 1 against it; of 
those from Pennsylvania, 13 for and 14 against 
it; of those from .Maryland, 4 for and 3 against 
it; of thoso from Virginia, 3 for and 5 against it; 
of those from Louisiana, 1 for and 3 against it; 
of those from Tennessee, 10 for and 3 against it; 
of those from Kentucky, 8 for and 5 against it; 
of those from Ohio, 4 for and 19 against it; of 
those from Indiana, 2 for and 1 against it; and 
of those from Missouri, 3 for and 1 against ii. — 
The delegations from Delaware, Florida, New 
Jersey, California, Michigan, Wisconsin, and 
District of Columbia, voted for it, and those from 
Connecticut and Iowa against it. Of the 125 
delegates from the free States, 72 voted in the af- 
firmative, and 53 in the negative; and of the 58 
from the slave States, 36 voted in the affirmative 
and 22 in the negative. It was, therefore, nei- 
ther a sectional vote, nor a sectional triumph, 
either as regards the candidates or the Platform. 

Covington Lectures. — We see by the Coving- 
ton Journal that Rev. J. P. Safford of Frankfort, 
delivers to-night the concluding lecture before 
tho Literary Association of our sister city. His 
subject is, “Isabella of Castile and Elisabeth of 
England, the Catholic and the Virgin Queens.” 
It is a rich morceau of the illustrious by gones, 
and wo may hope it will meet its desert at his 
hands. 

This winter course of lectures hus been entire- 
ly successful in winning favor and patronage. 
Lectures have been given by Rev. Dr. Butler of 
Washington City, Rcr. Dr. Fisher of Cincinnati, 
Dr. Harrison of the Ohio Medical University, 
and other distinguished men of different profes- 
sions. 

Shall another winter pass over, without inau- 
gurating a full course in the Capital city of Ken- 
tucky? 

Colonization Notice. 

A vessel chartered for the purpose, will leave 
Baltimore on the 1st of May next, with emi- 
grants for Liberia. The Legislature of Ken- 
tucky has appropriated Ji5,000 a year to aid free 
colored persons residents in the State, and those 
who are bom of such, and now free, to go to Li- 
beria. The aid is to pay the passage of such to 
Liberia, six months support there, bouse rent 
free, and physician’s bill, if sick, during that 
time. The Colonization Society gives to each 
adult emigrant five acres of land, or a town lot, 
if he, or she, prefer it. The emigrants settle in 
what part of Liberia they prefer. They have 
houses of worship to attend, and schools to send 
their children to. Aliy lawful business can be 
followed. The government is like that which 
the white people enjoy in this land. Be ye there- 
fore men, and care for your children. Try that 
land, and if it does not suit you, you can leave 
it when you please. The passage from Balti- 
more is from 25 to 35 days. No lives have been 
lost on any passage heretofore by storm or ship- 
wreck. For further information about Liberia, 
aRd what is needed to take, and for engagement 
of a passage, write to Rev. A. M. Cowan, Agent 
of the .State Colonization Society, Frankfort, 
Kentucky. The emigrants wilt meet me in Lex- 
ington, Ky., on the 22d of April next, to leave 
for Baltimore in time for the sailing of the ves- 
sel. Free colored persons in each county in Ken- 
tucky can apply and share in the appropriation, 
and the donations of friends to the Colonization 
Society. Executors of estates having in charge 
servants emancipated bv will to go to Liberia, 
will give information that they have such to Bend. 
Such emancipated servants cannot draw a dollar 
of the $5,000 appropriated by the State. 

Papers published in the State will please give 
this notice several insertions, and thereby aid tho 
Colonization cause.

Butler defended Atchison from alleged interfer- 
ence in Kansas affairs — Toucey, also, on similar 
grounds. Hale replied — drawing sketehes from 
some New England politicians, who seemed to 
think that the curse, originally pronounced upon 
the tempter, belonged to them, namely: “upon i 
thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shall thou eat.” 
[Laughter.] Thus they bow down before the slave 
power, which dispenses a large share of the pa- 
tronage of the country, making pretensions to 
devotion to the Constitution themselves, they ac - 1 
cused every man of treason who dares assert his 
manhood, and claim the right to speak and act j 
for himself. 

After further debate the Senate adjourned. 

House — Mr. Hickman, from committee on 
Elections, made a report presenting reasons for 
renewing the demands for authority to send for 
authority to send for persons and papers in the 
Kansas contested election case. It starts out by 
representing that an allegation on the part of 
Gov. Reeder is that the Legislature which passed 
the election law under the provision of which 
Gen. Whitfield was chosen, was imposed upon 
the people of the Territory by a foreign invading 
force, who seized upon the government and have 
exercised it ever since. That the people there 
are in a subjugated state. It then discusses at 
length the following questions: 

1. The necessity of having an investigation of 
the facts in dispute. 

2. The effect of the act of Gov. Reeder in is- 
suin'; certificates of their election to a portion of 
the Legislature. 

3. Whether evidence to establish the facts can 
be had satisfactorily by depositions. 

Upon the first point it is urged that State affairs 
there have excited the feelings of the whole peo- 
ple of the Union — that it is the theme of a Pre- 
sidential message and proclamation, and that 
sovereign States in different portions of the Uni- 
on have considered the propriety of interference 
by men and arms — that the question to be settled 
is, whether a military power has seized upon 
territory and governs it by a strong hand — that 
this question involves the existence of self-gov- 
ernment, and cannot he settled by groping among 
assertions and denials, but only of facts proved. 

Upon the second point, it contends that the peo- 
ple of the Territory cannot be prejudiced by > 
whatever Reeder did as Governor; that the peo- , 
pie are now contesting the seat through him, and 
that, if it was not so, still Congress could and 
should investigate it, if a reasonable doubt exists j 
as to the right of Gen. Whitfield to a seat. 

Upon the third point.it argues a commission to ] 
take depositions wouldbe fruitless; that the Presi- 
dent regards the presence of the army there as 
necessary to preserve peace, and the execution of 
the commission would bring the belligerent par- 
ties face to face, and incite hostilities; that it | 
would be equivalent to an effort to obtain Terri to- \ 
ry on a battle-field, and that commissioners would 
be powerless to preserve pence. 

In tile course of the argument the committee 
allude to the fact that ordinarily in despotisms . 
their subjects enjoy some degree of peace and 
quiet, while in Kansas the settlers are not only 
alleged to be reduced to State vassalage to a for- 
eign power, but that' personal safety is unknown 
and murder and outrage arc said to be almost the i 
daily record of its history. The report is vol - 
uranious and argumentivc, and is concurred in by 
Washburn, of Me., Watson, Spurries, Hickman, 
Colfax aud Bingham. 

After reading the report, Mr. Stevens submit- 
ted a minority report — same committee. 

Tbc minority report says that Reeder’s sole ob- 
jection in his application seems to be to devolve 
on the committee the enquiry into the validity of 
the territorial law under which Whitfield was 
elected, the members who passed that law were 
not themselves properly elected as is to be estab- 
lished. Fortbis, Reeder wishes to send for per- 
sons and papers, thus making the House not only 
the judges of the qualifications aud returns of its 
own members, butof members of Territorial and 
State Legislatures, which of course follows. This 
wouid be assuming a position not properly per- 
taining to the House and establish a precedent of 
dangerous tendency. If the House conclude that 
the examination shall be gone into, the end 
would be obtained by sending Commissioners to 
Kansas to take such testimony as may be perti- 
nent and competent, whereas, sending for persons 
and papers would occasion much delay, incon- 
venience and trouble, if not prove impracticable. 

Accompanyingthe report is a paper from Whit- 
field, who submits that Reeder lias no right to be 
heard, not having been a candidate when Whit- 
field was elected, nor was Reeder a candidate in 
any election authorized by law. The testimony 
proposed to be taken is not competent to prove 
the truth. Reeder was Governor when the mem- 
bers of the Legislature were chosen. The elec 
tion was conducted by Judges appointed by Ree- 
der and who took the prescribed oath to reject the 
votes of non-residents. 

Tho members of the Kansas Legislature took 
their seats without cavil or complaint from Ree- 
der, who commissioned those very members, by 
whom the law was passed, under which Whitfield 
was elected. Tile pretext of Reeder’s, (that the 
members of the Legislature were illegally elect- 
ed,) stops in view of the facts stated. Signed — 
Stevens and Oliver, Missouri; Smith Alabama. 
A consideration of this subject was postponed 
until to-morrow. 

The House then went into a committee of the 
Whole. 

Grow assailed the President’s special mes- 
sage upon Kansas, maintaining that the peo- 
ple had aright to call a Convention to form a con- 
stitution, and earnestly condemned the effort to 
extend slavery over a free territory. 

Cadwallader argued that legislation under the 
Constitution has always been to make a mutually 
beneficial partition of territory between North 
and South, or to leave the people free to mould 
their own domestic institutions He defended 
the Kansas-Nebraska act. 

Washington, March 5.' 

The foreign mails by the America contain 
nothing concerning the difficulties with England 
of any moment. 

Advices from our foreign ministers induce the 
conviction that peace will be consummated at 
Paris by a full understanding betweeu France and 
Russia and Austria, although France at the out- 
set may favor the demands of England 

The probability is that when they aro claimed, 
persistently, France will decline further prosecu- 
tion oil their account. If Mr. Craropton should 
immediately send the required explanation in an- 
swer to Marev’s demand, and Lord Clarendon be 
still detained at Paris, Mr. Adington, permanent 
foreign secretary, will doubtless answer for the 
British Government under instructions from Lord 
Palmerston. 

There is evident disposition in England to cre- 
ate divisions here, through the influenco of the 
press or Congress, and thus weaken the cround 
of the Administration. 

Lord Palmerston is understood to bo prepared 
for any point 9hortof Mr. Crampton’s deDarture, 
which involves tho whole present issue. 

Mr. Buchanan has not written that he would 
withdraw before his successor’s presentation. He 
has said positively that ho must be at home by the 
first of April, to attend to his private affairs’ It 
is not improbable, therefore, that he mav have 
said, “before Dallas arrives.”

The Suction and Force Pump. 

A most excellent Pump, upon the same principles of tne 
Atmospheric Pump, capable of lifting water thirty -three

by trial to bo most admirably adapted for preserving the 
mortal remains, the decided preference given themtver 
the eld fashioned wooden box, the increased demand In 
the city, county, and adloiulng counties has induced us

any number of CAKR1AGES ordered, will atteud all

Tar, 



I T is well known that there is great ecouomy iu crushing 
or griudiug the kernels of all graiu before feeding it 
to stock, ami that there is much nutriment in the cob 
wheu properly broken or ground. And the ouly reason 
that mill* arranged to produce these desired results have 
not beeu more generally introduced among planters and 
farmer*, has beeu their complex arraugeiueut and high 
cost. 

In the Kentucky Coro and Cob Mill, of which toe 
above is au uccurale eugruviug, we claim to have pro- 
duced a machiue at once efficieul, substantial and cheap, 
while It* arrangement is so simple that the most ordinary 
hand can adjust and operate it. This machine, unlike 
any other, is regulated by means of a single setscrew 
which i* easily moved by hand, and is applied directly 
under the centre of the mill. 

Any one using these Mills will find a clear saving of 
oxr ^carter of their corn over the old plan of feeding. 

We warrant these Mills to give entire satisfaction. Pur 
chaser* may use them for thirty day* and if not satisfied 
can return them and get their money.

following rate per hour, with one horse:

STRAW-CUTTER QUESTION. 

II ESSRS. J. B. FORD dcCOs, of the city of New Albany , 
iflin the State of ludiana, claiming to be the ow ner* of 
.San d ford *s pa teu- right to manufacture w hat is known a? 
Sandford’s Straw -Cutter, have sold the right to manufac- 
ture the same to various persons for ccrtuiu prescribed 
territories, and they have warned the public against pur- 
chasing the Straw-Cutter manufactured by us. We nave 
been for a long time satisfied that the so -cal led ‘Sanford 
patent. is a fraud, aud that it is void, being a palpable pira 
cy and infringement of the patent-right of John Boynton, 
which bears date 25th day of September, 1833, and has 
expired. Wo have been' satisfied that the machine de- 
nominated Sanford's perfect Straw-Cutter is constructed 
uolaccordinglo the specifications contained inSandford's 

L atent, but according to the specifications contained in 
oynton’s and all this has recently been decided in the 
U. S. Circuit Court for the Middle district of Tennessee 
Some months since, we sold to B. S. Weller, of Nash 
villa, several of the so-called Sanford Straw-Cutter*, 
which were taken by him to the State ofTenneasce and 
there sold. Ch's M. Alexander claimed to be tbe assignee 
of Sanford’s patent for the State of Tennessee from J 
B. Ford & Co., and sued Weller on infringement. Wei 
ler defended and insisted that Sanford's patent is void 
and a piracy on Boynton's, and, as we before said, court 
and fury so decided. 

V\eare prepared, as heretofore, to furnish all orders 
for the Straw-Cutters manufactured by us, and to defend 
any and every person in selling or usiugtbcm.

We do not propose to make unqualified statements or 
to force a nostdum before the public, but simply to re

and not only read the testimony of those who have ex- 
perienced its in valuable curative powers, but to write 
to, or call upon, the convalescents, so that the statements 
may emanate from the Fountain Head — a oour.se which 
w ill satisfy the most incredulous, and one by which the 
refutation of tho Remedy is certain of beiug sustained. 
\\ rite also to the proprietors, who will accord every in- 
formation, und furnish names of undoubted character 
from every section of the Union, numbering among 
them some of the most emiueut Physicians. Clergymen,

what resulted from the insurance ou hi* life, which he 
had beeu so thoughtful in making.
