Again, it is contended that the sin of I
Adam was suflicieiit to daimi the whole hu-1
man race, and that but for the intervention
of Christ this penalty must liuve been suf

not take the inheritance upon hiuwell, und
shed his own blood to wipe away the de
pravity into wliich man had been precipi
tated by the disobedience or his first pa

Him und his teachings save himself from the

commands his Apostles to " Go into ull the

Free Negroes. The proposed subjec
tion of free negroes to slavery lu the South
ern States is arousing increased and grati
fying opposition, and in qnnrters even sup
posed to be deaf to any appeals of justice
or conscience in behalf of tlrs poor and
despised race. Judge Krum, of St. Louis,
a prominent lawyer and a leading Admin
istration Democrat, following the lead of
Judge Catron, of Tennessee, has published
an able and earnest remonstrance against
the bill to enslave the free colored people
of Missouri, then pending before the Legis
lature of that State. The Missouri bill is
more barbarous and summary in its provis
ions than that proposed for the same pur
pose in any other State. But happily
Gov. Stewart vetoed this outrageous enactment.
Mobs are like the man kicked out of
a coffee-house by Col. McClung, the famous
Mississippi duelist. Some time after the
Colonel bestowed the kicking, he saw the
recipient of the operation kicking some one

Didn't I kick you out of the other day?1'
" Yes, Colonel, certainly," was the reply;
" hut don't say anything aliout it you and

Bepreseututives nt Wadiington on the
1 2th of January, John B. Hm-kin of New
York, nn nnti-Leconiplon Deinoerat, whilst
engaged In scnkiug, nccidcutully let a pis
tol drop from his pm ket, causing a greut
excitement. The Herald's correspondent
thus descrilM'a the scene:
" Beelzebub was let loose In the House
to day in consequence of the sight of a
pistol. The single crock of nil instrument
during the excitement would liuve resulted
in a bloody scene, nffectiug not only the
life of men, but ulso of the nation. It is
lielifvcd thut most of the members of the
House go to their daily duties with deudlv
wcupoiH, ns men go to battle. For a few
moments the scene ou the floor was un
paralleled. The click of pistols was llis
tinctly heard, tho most ungry words wcr'
uttered, and the wildest passion displayed
The nppenrance or the Scrgciint-nt-Arms,
w.tli h:s up'inecl mace, crying 'Order!
gentlemen, order!' brought harmony out of
linos, bo (I sgraeetul wus the scene, thut
members have been heard to regret that u
free press existed to publish the facts.
" The House owes much to the cool ue
tinu nnd patriotic uppeul of Mr. Harris, of
.M irvlautl, who brought it buck to a sense
of its propriety, nnd restored peace. Tho
throng of people iu the spacious galleries
hissed the conduct of their Bepresentulives
luring the a Ilia v. 1 he explanation of Mr.
Ilaskin, that t lie pistol displayed fell nct-i- '
dentally upon the floor, satisfied the House.
The Tribune corrcspondeut, iu writing
of the same nffiir, says:
" Mr. Ilaskin inquired of Mr. Mr Bur if
Horace Clark, n professing uiiti-Lceoiniv-
ton man, had nurecd to the programme by
which Mr. Hickman's plurality proposition
was to be voted down. Clark interrupted,
suying it was none of his business. Sub
sequently Ilaskin obtained the floor, and
deiiouuci'd (.'lark's answer us impertinent,
witli other comments not henrd iu the con
fusion. Iiiiuiediutely calls to order were
vociferated from tiie Democratic side, and
ush made toward Ilaskin, who contin
ued loud and vehement denunciations.
ihe Clerk rapped violently, and finally
cdled the Scrgcant-at-Arnis, who appeared
in the midst ot the confusion with uplifted
mace. At one moment the whole House
was intensely disturbed, but tho principel
confusion was among the Democracy, who
urged toward the center urea, near which
Ha-kin stood. While speaking, his re
volver accidentally drnpiied from his pock
et, which added to tho excitement from n
misapprehension thut it hud been drawn for
a hostile purpose. I was a careful specta
tor of the whole scene, and saw the pistol
Iron. Ilaskin was evidently unconscious
of w lint hud occurred until the weapon
struck his foot. While the
Democratic side affected such sensibility nt
the nnienrunce of this weapon, tho fact is
well known that most ol them have t.een
nrm:d ull the session, nnd more than half
the House go prepared Tor such contingen
cies as were threatened to-day. If a col
lision which Appeared imminent Tor u few
minutes hud occurred, there would lia
bc'.'ii a serious reckoning. After constant,
insulting and unprovoked mennccs, tho It
publicans mean to defend their persoiu 1
rights in their own way, whenever ussailcd."

An interesting articlu in Blackwood, on
the fight ut Pcilio, has the following pas
sage: "An American bout visited one or our
vessels, and on wishing to IcuVo her, the
oflieer round nil his men hud got out or the
bout. After some delay they were found
looking very hot, smoke-begrimmed, nnd
fiy'ilitli. 'Holloa, sirs,' said the officer,
with assumed severity, 'don't you know
wo tire neutrals; what have you been do
ing?' ' Beg pardon, ' said the gallant fal
lows, looking very bashful; 'they wen:
very short-huiidcd nt the bow-gun, sir, urn!
so We giv'd them a help for fellowships
suke.' They hud beer, hard at it for im
hour. Gallant Americans! you and your
udmirnl did more that day to bind Eng
land and the United States together than
ull your lawyers und pcttifoggersjioliticunj
liuve ever done to purt us."
fifMr. Jacob Barker, an old and es
teemed citizen or Xew Orleans, nt the Pil
grim Celebration iu thut city, iu alluding
to the Southern bluster about disunion,
told some unpleasant truths to his South
( rn brethren. He suid:
"We know full well Hint our slaves
would not be worth the clothes they wear
ir the Union should be dissolved. Their
value consists in tlie preservation or South
ern rights, as giiuruntccd by the Constitu
tion. Shouid it be Vucuted by a division
or the Union, the Northern section would
imitate their cousins, the British, making
all free who should put foot ou their soil.
This would depopulate the border Stutcs
of their slave population, and they would,
one after another, become Free States, un
til not one would be left to tell how it had

lamented Mr. French, lute first oflieer or
the wrecked sU-amer Northern, has been re
covered and will lie brought to this city for
interment, by the steamer Columbia on her
r lurn. It will be remembered that Mr
French, after effecting a safe lauding, re
turned to the wreck in the hope or sa','..
the lives or others, and in his heroic- kwd. un
wlfi-h attempt, Imt his own, existence
Ite was a man with a Wg family; but
even that great consideration did not deter
him from endeavoring to rescue the families
of others. l(ia own home affections taught
him their Inappreciable value, and he sur
rendered up Itit lift! while trying to do to oth
ers as he would that they should do uuto Lin
