P'pecial Despatch to the Chicago Tribnne.l VTabhisotos, March 25. TLe Constlmtiou of the new State of Deseret, cmliraonc the present Territory of Utah, was laid before Lorgress last week, with the prayer of the General Assembly lor admission to the Union. It i» accompanied by documents showing that the proposed State has fourteen counties, and, on the 4tb of last February, on the question of adopting the Constitution, cast 14.055 votes, all but thirty Being in its favor. The Constitution, In its gene ral features, resembles those of other States. No oUtlncLiou of race or color is made, but any citi zen of the United States may vote or bold office. The only clause bearing upon polygamy is the following from the Bill of Rights: Src. 3. All men have a natural and inalienable right to worship tied according to ’he dictate? of their own conscience, and the General Assembly shall mate no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or to disturb any person in his religious worship or sentiments, and all persons demeaning them selves peaceably as good members of this State shall lw equally under the protection of the laws, and no subordination or preference ot any one. sect or denomination to another shall ever be es tablished by la*, nor shall any religions test be ever required for any office of trust under the Constitution. . , The Union members of the Maryland Lcgtsla lure have sent Congress a long memorial praying for Immediate acilon on the question referred ten days ago to the House Judiciary Committee, viz.; Whether ibeir State has a republican form of government. They recite acts of the Legislature this winter tending to give ex-rebels sod sympa thizers corap:ete control, saying that among other things that ihe State tnmi-bed about twenty thousand men for the rebel army, the great ma jority of whom have already returned, and are made voters under the new registry law. Toe memorialists ask the interposition of Congress to give them a loyal government under the Military Deconstruction Bill. A VOICE most ALABAMA. Lewis E. Parsons, one of the Senators cleet from Alabama, in writing home from this city, used the following language respecting the Mill* tary Reconstruction Bill: “Why should our peo ple hasten to make this monstrous act of Con gressional usurpation their act before its consti tutionality has been passed on! As know stands it is forced upon na. If we adopt It It becomes oars, and from that moment we preclude oor- Belves.” *gw toek custom norsß teapot.

We have no reason to believe, nor do we believe, that there has been an over-issue of a single dollar." A TEMPERANCE MEETING IN JAIL.

The change of front ou the adjournment qncs tlon made by both branches or Congress this toomlup, took Democrats and outsiders by snr piisc. A Jeiv words will explain the matter. It app< are that two or three prominent gentlemen call* d «<n i* t Sicreiary of War last evening, aud luend that he thought, in view ox the possible questions that miglt come np under the Military IJeo'EStruciion would be unwise for Con* frees to tie its own liatids tor nine mouths. The rcpoit of hie opinion was circulated In the proper quarters, and this morning it wa« reinforced bya Eteti ment that General Gram held the same Tjcwa tf the situation. The latter visited the Capitol about nooit,acd was on the floor of the House jnei before action was taken on Mr. Pchenck'e resolution, and it may be said that he thet suggested to more than one gentleman, that a provision should be made for getting Congress together on one or two specified days before next December, If it was deemed advisable to re-as- semble when those days trrired- The Scbenck. revolution baring been passed. the Senate thought best not to lake farther action to-dar. *tet there shonld eecm to be a dead lock, warrant ing the interference ol the President, and accord li-glylbe tnatier treat over till to-morrow.

Other gentlemen also spoke of the necessity of work In the South, and It was resolved to reach all see tionß with documents. If possible.

Reprieve of the Murderer TPUUamson on the Day Appointed for Hl* Exe cution—Disappointment of the Popu lace—Exciting Threats of Violence— The Murderer’s Confession—Arrest of Supposed Accomplices. [Prom Ihc Peoria (111.) Democrat, March 23.1 The execution of Thomas Andrew William ton, for the murder of Charles Koch, in July last, near Delcvan, Tazewell County, was sot for Friday, the 22d instant. Rumors had been afloat that all applications for Execu live clemency had failed, and that the exe cution would certainly take place according to the sentence. On the previous evening it was stated that a reprieve had been granted, but was not generally regarded os having any good foundation, and a largo number of pci eons assembled, probably five or six iliousand, to sec the dying struggles of the victim of the law. The cars ol the Peoria, Pekin & Jacksonville Railroad were filled as they were never filled before, and Peoria turned out a crowd to witness the spectacle thot only such an occasion could get to aether. About nine o’clock, while the streets wore filled with the unxlons expectants, a procla mation was issued by Sheriff Myers, ol Pe kin, conveying to them the unwelcome in telligence that a reprieve had been granted the condemned man until the 21st of June not. Several threats were heard in the crowd that the execution should take place, il not according to law, In defiance of it, ana it was feared at one time that violence might be invoked to work out the programme. But better counsels prevailed, and no out break occurred. The officers were on the alert, and special policemen were ready to act, bat, fortunately, their aid was not need ed. The crowd did not disperse until night, and theu some of them went off with the air of men who had been defrauded of a valuable privilege. The gallows had been erected on the east side of the jail. It was a rough concern, con* tlstlng of a platform about twelve feet square. With ft drop three ondabalfleet square, and two uprights aud a cross beam supi ortlng a hook about seven feet above the plultoim. This was the subject of much ctu loslty, and tender looking women anxious to see how the thing worked, for that purpose crowded upon it, under it, and over it. it stood until lute in the afternoon, when it was taken downwind store in the cellar for future use. The prisoner was notaware that a reprieve had been granted, until about noon, though it vaguely hinted to him that such a thing was possible by his spiritual adviser. When be "us informed of the arrival of the reprieve he burst into a passion of tears, and wept forscvctol minutes before he could ar ticulate a word.

A Secessionist in tho Senate. Philip Francis Thomas and Charles I). Drake. The Latter Reads a Sermon to the Senate. [Special Correspondence of tbe Chicago Tribune.] •j Washington, D. C.. March 23. iThe Judiciary Committee of the House bis been ordered to do what never be fore was done—give an interpretation of tbe constitutional phroso “a republican form of government.” In other words, they have , been instructed to inquire whether Maryland has such a form of government; and U they conclude tbat ehe has not, they must, of course, report what, In their view, is the dut yof Congress la the premises. That the country will wait for the report with some curiosity, not to say anxiety, may be safely assumed. Of course It will not he made till next winter. PHILIP FRANCIS THOMAS, the sew Senator trom Maryland, is not of the men with whom one falls in love at first eight. In general appearance he Is Southern to the last degree; hatred of the North and of free institutions lies in his blood and bis temper. Looking at him, you notice, first, that his eyes are set very near together, that his ears are particularly prominent, and that bis forehead is exceedingly deficient in the upper part. These three points of bis out ward mao arc bound to strike you as soon as yon sec him. For the rest, he is a weak faced mao, with lips and nostrils that show passion and intensity, brows that de note insight, a hawkish nose, a broadlsh and scowling forehead—a man who looks about fifty years, but is probably older than that, a man of medium height and slightly corpulent tendecles, of brown hair, leathery face, quick motions, rather pompons manners, and a sort of easy nervous ; uddiess. in South Carolina he would have been an intense fire-eater; in Maryland be could show malignity but not boldness, and so was nothing but a neighborhood seces sionist of the bitterest type. A Republican Is a traitor in his eyes, and he stands ready to swallow the iron-clad oath without gulp* Ing or winking. During the debate on his case last Mon day, Mr. Thomas and two or three other prominent Maryland Copperheads sat on the lounge In the corner of the Senate Chamber. He found it very difficult to keep still, but got up every few minutes to go and speak with Keverdy Johnson, and toward the last he imitated Saulsbury and walked up and down the area hack of the Democratic desks. Seeing that the Senate was determined to have on investigation, he made a virtue of necessity and finally asked Mr. Johnson to move that his credentials be sent to the Ju diciary Committee, of which Judge Trum bull is chairman, if the session runs over to the middle of next week, 1 presume a report thereupon will be made before adjournment. Some Senators want the committee to go back to the ‘'election returns and qualifica tions,” and inqmre into the character of the Legislature, even Into the loyalty of the electors by whom the members of that body were chosen. To do this would practically be to take up the question referred to the Judiciary Committee of the House—to con sider whether Maryland has 'a republican form of government. If the case Is reported noon at this session, no such range can be given to the investigation; and 1 know no reason for thinking that the committee will feel warranted in making It* anywhere near 60 broad, even if the report Is postponed till next winter. CQAItIXS P. PIUKE. The new Senator from Missouri has already made his mark here. So much, at least, one may say, without expressing aa opinion on the course be has seen fit to pursue. He has put himself In a position that few men new lo Washington life would covet—he makes himself the target for the keenest ridicule ol the entire opposition of the country, and sots himself up for the criticism of very many Republican papers that arc, at least, quite as sound in the faith as be Is. His ac tion is satirized by the stately Intelligencer , ridiculed by the Times, condemned by the Evening Port, commended toy Mr. Sumner. The World is engaged in showing up his po litical record prior to 1802, and a score of journals arc reminding him of the fable of the frog that wanted to be as large os the ox. Possibly you may not very clearly see the cause for this cross fire uj>on Mr. Drake, for the press reports of the Senate proceed ings lately convey but little Idea oi the de bates in that body. Ho took a very prominent part in the dis cussion of the Supplemental Reconstruction Bill, and offered twice os many amendments os any other Senator, only one of which, however, was adopted. New Senators are so generally diffident or reserved, so much In clined to lei their older associates fashion the legislation, that the prominence be gave himself wonld alone have subjected him to some not wholly friendly comment. But he did more than metcly take an active part in the debate; be read the Senate such a lec ture as 11 has had from nobody but Sumucr since the days of Toombs and Mason—a lec ture that would have been quite creditable, indeed, to Mr. Sumucr himself. He had been, on the whole, quite unsuccessful with his propositions for amendment, and bis po sitions weie criticised rather sharply by sev eral of the oldest men on our side of the Chamber. At this juncture he allowed him self to speak as follows: “Ido not hesitate to avow in open Senate, on the Cist occasion when 1 have undertaken toad dress this aucoft body, that I come acre as a representative, not of a Conservative radicalism, Put of a Radical radicalism, widen believes la doh>t sad not in half doing. I regret very ranch, ittdied, .Mr. President, to have discovered, or thocebt 1 bad discovered, in the brief time I have been bore, that there is each a thite on the floor of this Berate as Courcrvattve radicalism; and X tell any gentleman who Is nursing Conservative radicalism ibat that Is not the radlcall«m.or the people. We might as well tar removed as we arc from the people by oar position as Senators, re mcmhtr that there Is a people to whom every man in this Chamber is sooner or later to bo account able. And, sir, there la among the people a pro found radicalism, a radicalism which hasa strange and new lasbloueo way of shelving those who vaa dilate or slnggcr, as well as those who desert. Some gentlemen nftbis body have had experience of that. Perhaps it is not wltboat the range of possibility mat some others may have similar ex perience m the not very distant future.” This to such men as Trumbull, Fessenden, Conkling and Wilson, who were opposing h!s motions, and to the dozen more Republi cans who did not favor them. It was ex actly in the style of Mr. Sumner, yon see. The Massachusetts Senator Is only barely tolerated In such language, though his radi calism is life-long, and his service in the Senate covers more than a dozen years. Mr. Drake bad been lathe Senate just ten days when he made this speech, and his political record is well enough known in the West. It is safe to say that he has not put himself in a position calculated to give the greatest weight to his counsels and bis judgment. Mr. Drake impresses you at sight with the fact that ho is a lighting man. ills manner is repellent and aggressive, ond his lace is decidedly suggestive of pugnacity. In per son, he Is rather under medium size; in bearing, he Is careless and nervous. He re ceives you with courtesy, but entirely with out geniality. The lower part of his face is something like General Grant’s—that is, he has the same short stiff whisker; the same straight-lined mouth, and very much the same square under jaw. Here the likeness code. HU faceis wcazcnish,hls eyes are small und deeply set, bis forehead is broad and low, bis brow is very much wrinkled ; he has an eager, intense, restless, unsatisfied expression. His general appearance shows that the mental man is wearing out the physical man. He is round-shouldered and sunken-chested, and his faceis old and fur rowed, far beyond his middle-age years. Has his whole life being a conllict ? You would say so, and then would add that you expect him to be hard at work as long as he lives. Quietness and sluggishness are foreign to h’s nature. Iseapl.
