A House bill (nearly a copy of that of Mr. Douglas) having been reported January 31st. by Mr. Richardson, of Illinois, from the Committee on Territories, Mr. English, of Indiana--a most unflinching Democrat--from the minority of said Committee, proposed to strike out the clause which we have seen reported by Mr. Douglas to tom proposing any amendments or modifications whatever, when it is morally certain that, had they been permitted to do so, some such amendment as Gov. Chase's or Mr. English's would have been carried. The Free States contributed 44 votes — all cast by Democrats — to the support of this measure. From the Slave States, 12 Whigs an — total 120; Nays, 104 Democrats, 8 Americans — total 112. This amendment was rejected by the Senate, who asked a Committee of Conference; which, on motion of Mr. English, of Indiana, who had thus far acted with the Douglas men, was granted by 109 Yeas to 108 Nays. The bill reported from the Conference Committee proposed a subm
ey in hand, waiting till his door shall in due order present itself, labors under substantially the same hallucination, and is usually certain to cherish it until he awakes to prosaic realities — to bruises, self-reproach, headache, and remorse. Von Muller, one of the present King of Prussia's grave and reverend councilors of state, in his younger and wittier days, celebrated this inversion of the perceptive faculties, in verses still popular in Germany, and which have been rendered into English, as follows: Out of the Tavern. Out of the tavern I've just stepped to-night: Street! you are caught in a very bad plight; Right hand and left are both out of place-- Street! you are drunk!--‘t is a very clear case! Moon! ‘t is a very queer figure you cut-- One eye is staring, whilst t‘ other is shut; Tipsy, I see; and you're greatly to blame: Old as you are, ‘t is a terrible shame. Then the street lamps-what a scandalous sight! None of them soberly standing upright; Rocking an
esolution day in the House, was signalized by the broaching of several new devices for saving the Union. Mr. John Sherman, of Ohio, suggested a faithful observance, on all hands, of the requirements and compromises of the Constitution, with an immediate division of the territories into embryo States, with a view to their prompt admission into the Union. Mr. John Cochrane, of New York, revived the old scheme of dividing the territories between Free and Slave Labor on the line of 36° 30′. Mr. English, of Indiana, proposed substantially the same thing. Mr. Noell, of Missouri, proposed an abolition of the office of President of the United States, and a division of the Union into three districts, each to elect one member of an Executive Council, to which the functions of President should be intrusted. He suggested, moreover, a restoration of the equilibrium between the Free and Slave States, by a division of several of the latter into two or more States each. Mr. Thomas C. Hindman, S
