llecllnlng ono night upon his bed,
Involving tho thought within bis bead,
And wishing himself married or dead,
(A wish which Is echoed. I've often red,
Hy ilmnly Inntting "neither" Instead,)
His body became as pillld ns leud,
Itesembllns n mesmeric doza :
When the household clock warned him to rise

Ucfore allowing (ho subject; to pass,
A timely moral we'll give each lass,
Always beware of a 'Snnko In tho grass,"
Or. like our Grandmother Eve.
You'll be compelled, alas, too late,
To tear your balr and mourn your futc,
And of deceptivencds to crate,
And fearfully wail and grieve.
Beware, young men, of Cupid's shaft ;
Let juveniles avoid the craft
Or wild, enticing girls 5
For when they've misled yon enough,
Aud filled your head with sickening stuff,
You'll find, nlas, they're "up to snuff,"
And will leavo you In a sorry huff,
To curse the silly churls.

The 1'. M. Steamer Sonora arrived at.San
Prnnflsco this afternoon, with the U. S.
malls to 3th March.
The Senate took the final vote on the ad
mission of Kansas under tho Lccompton
Constitution on Wednesday, 33d Mnrch, af
ter n debate almost unprecedented In dura
tlon nnd Interest. Among tho speeches
rm5ile against theldH was one'by Mr.Ifrod
erlck, which la represented ns of much fire;
and vigor. Mr. II. denounced tho repeal of; Mr. Orecn moved that Mr. Montgomery's
the Mlronrl Compromise and vindicated I amendment bo disagreed to, and tho Senate
labor from tho aspersions of Mr. Hammond, Sustained the resolution nnd adjourned over
of South Carolina, who averted that nit till the filh Inst,
manual laborers were slaves, whether white. in tho Scnato tho Committed on Tcrrlto-
or black. He opposed the Lccompton Con!
stltutlon, because he believed the charges of
fraud In regard to that Instrument were
' wholly proven, and that It did not represent
' tho wishes of Kansas.
j Mr. Crittenden, of Ky , spoke against the
bill, aud offered on amendment sending the
1 Instrument lu the people of Kansas tobc
tuiimitieti to a lair vote, una in case tne
people adopted It, Kansas should come in by
1 proclamation of the President; If rejected,
i a new convention should be calltd tojrnnie
, a utw constitution, to bo submitted to thu
peoplo for ratification or rejection. This
was rated down, and tho bill named 33
uyee to 2.1 noes. Ilroderick, Douglas and
Ptifth, Dems., nnd Messrs. Hell, of Tcnu.,
and Crlttcsden, of Ky., Amer., voted In the
negative ; Messrs. Hales, Davis nnd Held
were ah-scut, and Mr.
Cameron, of Pa., did;
not vote, hav.tug pnlretl off with Mr, Davis.
! Mr. Pugh voted against tho bill, under In
1 alructlonsfrom the Ohio Legislature, ngalnst
his own sentiments. Mr. Houston voted for
it ngiilnst his own views, In deference to in
structions of tho legislature of Texas, lie

may think proper to do so. This bill was
inttothe Iloitto, where lis merit were
iuiv.utn.-u nioro or less nil .pru ist, wiicr.
1 tho hour of one o'clock having arrived. Mr.
(Stevens, according to previous understand
ing, moved to tako the Kansas bill from Iho
table. It was taken up and read oncomore.
Mr. (ildillngs objected to a second reading,
nnd the question recurred back, shall the
bill bo rejected ? Mr. Stevens demanded
I the ayes and nnys, which wero taken, and
tho bill was not rejected j ayes OS, nays 133.
I Tho bill was then read a second time. Mr.
Stevens gave way to Mr. Montgomery, who
offered the Crittenden substitute, amended
in a few Immaterial particulars. On this
motion enrao the tug of wnr. Mr. Critten
den, of Miss., offered a substitute, an amend
ment to Mr. Montgomery's amendment,
which was tho ramo as the Senate bill with
tho omission of the clause declaring the
power of the people of Knnias to chango
their constitution nt any time. Mr. Stevens
deminded the previous question
Into was rejected ayes 72, noes 130. The
remit was applauded In the gallery.
The House then proceeded to vote on Mr.
Montgomery's motion to substitute the
Crittenden bill for tho Senate bill. Tbo
motion prevailed yeas 120, nays 112. On
the following vote which was to pass the
Kansas bill as thus amended, Ibe vote was
Thus terminated the long Kansas struggle
in the Hour-. The afiirmatlvo vote Included
al the Itepublicans, and tho following Dem
ocrats nnd Americans, viz : McKibben, or
Cal Morris, Harris, Shaw, rtoberts, Smith,
and Sainl Marshall, orill.; Eugllsli, Foley,
aud J. G. Davis, of la.; Underwood und
Humphrey Marshall, of Ky,; Hlcard, Har

Golman, of N. C; Clark und Haskln of N.
Y.j Hamilton, Ciroesbeck, Ccckerlll, Paul
Cos and Lawrence of Ohio, and Jones, Hick
man nnd Montgomery of Pa.
Only ono member, Caruthere, of Mo was
absent on thla important vote. Of tho ayes,
02 were Hep., 22 Dera., and C Americans,
making 120. Of the nays, 101 were Dem.
and 8 Amer.; making 112.
Tho bill was sent back to the Senate,
where that body refused to concur In the
amendments, Whether the House will ad
here to its amendments, or propose a con
ference committee, remains to be seen. It
Is generally believed that the difference be
tween the two Houses Is so radical that the
House -will not propose a conference com-
imlttee, but simply adhere to Its action, and
let the bill fall.
While these things are going on at Wajh
ington, Kansas, by tho authority of the Ter
ritorial Legislature, baa called a convention.
which is In session at Leavenworth, framing !
n new constitution. Gen. Lane was elected
President, which position he resigned after
the first day, and Judge Conway was elected
In his stead. Nothing had been done by
tho convention at latest date, beyond the
appointment of committees.
In tbo Scuate, on the 231b March, the bill
lo admit Minaeeits was sreeadrd to at to
allow ono member of the Houso of Repris
' sentatlrcs the one having the highest num
ber of votes; but ono hereafter if tho cen
sus Immediately taken shows that tho State
Is cntltlod to no more.
Mr, Douglass presented to the Senate, on
i tho 8th ult,, tho Constitution of Oregon, nnd
a petition for the organUution of the Tcr
I rltory of Dacotah.
Tho Sennto discussed tho volunteer army
bill. On Mr. Hunter's motion, tho number
of regiments provided for was reduced from
fi to 3 one of them being for tho protection
of tho Texan frontier. The bill thus amen
ded, and slightly altered in other respects,
was pMC(! by a vote of 41 to 31.
Pending this discussion the Kansas bill
came back from tho House. Subsequently,
ries rcfusid to unanimously report a bill for
i the organization of Arizona.
A contract has been entered Into for an

and Know Nothings, who have beeu predU
eating their calculations or the success or
their respective parties, at the next election,
upon the probable dlvlslou or the Democracy
in next summer's State Convention, have
slipped up awfully. The Legislature bos
postponed tho election of Congressmen, nnd
I of Clerk of the Supreme Court, to tho gen
eral election or 1600. As there Is nothing
' this year but a Judge or Ibe Supreme Court
to nominate, It la thought that the ussem
bllng or a Convention may be dispensed
with, if tonic other equally fair and satisfac
tory plan to nominate can bo fixed upon.
Thus there Mug no Convention, there can
bo no division. Wo pity tho mourners.

In South Ninth street, was called hiimo from

messenger who brought the melancholy In
telligence that bis wife, Hnrbara, had taken
arscnlo for the purpose of committing sul
clde, and was then on the point of death. Ho
hastened to her bedside, and found her in
more agony of mind than of body. She de
clared that thcre"waa something on ber
mind which she wished to confess to him be

1 Ing his forgiveness, Mr. Paine, with great
lemotlon, desired her to go on with the dis
closure, adding that she might assure her
self of his forgiveness befvre she had made
known her offense.
I ' Ah, Mordccat,' raid she, 'you remember
our large whlto pitcher was broken some
time ago. I pretended to you that tho cat
ibroko It, but that was false, for 1 did It my
