The bnton regards the passage of the Toombs' Kansas Pacification bill through the Senate as a heavy " fire in the rear" on the Republican party and its schemes for the can vass. The Intelligencer contains nothing editorial to-day. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP General Gadsden ? Somebody writes, from time to time, paragraphs to the New York Herald like the following : "An intimation coming to the cars of the President that General Gadsden had hinted at a full knowledge of the mysteries surround ing the payment of the three millions of dol lars due M exico, the Minister was sent for, and the next day left the city for parts un known, but supposed to be for Mexico." Here is another mare's nest. All the docu ments on the subject were communicated to the Senate last April. They show that in De cember, 1864, nine months before the down fall of Santa Anna, the Mexican government began to draw on the United States for the three millions by letters to the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the Treasury Mr. Marcy and Mr. Guthrie of course refused to pay at that time, because the money was not yet due. Afterwards, in November, 1806, a change of administration having occurred in Mexico, the new President, stating that he had not yet had time to examine the subject, requested the United States not to pay the drafts until further advice. Very well, said Mr. Marcy, take your time, and let us know what your conclusion is. Tho Mexi can government did take its time to ex amine the subject, and the result was that, in March last, it withdrew its objection to the payment of tho^ drafts, and renewed its re quest to have them paid by the United States according to their tenor. That was done, of course. On what ground or pretext could our Government undertake to dictate to Mexico what she should do with her own money, or to oompel her to rep udiate her own engagements ? If anybody will read the printed document, he will see that all the imaginary mystery in the matter if mere moonshine. Kansas Roorbacks.?By way of showing the Star's readers how little confidence is to be placed in representations of occurrences in Kansas, concocted by those who have got to gether the testimony for the House Investi gating Committee?the correspondents of the Abolition press from that quarterfor the most part?we herewith publish an account of the arrest and incarceration of some of the notori ous Brown-gang of Free State murderers an 1 horse thieves?the nose-splittir.g, scalping party, who have amused themselves with dash ing out the brains of infants, and violating and murdering women when their protectors were away. It will be perceived that, accord ing to the sbrieker for freedom in Kansas whore account we publish, they were very much maltreated indeed, the poor suffering christians and publio spirited patriots. But Immediately following it will be fpund a letter describing the same transactions, written to the Albany Argus $ At/as by a Northern man?one of the thousands in the Territory who, though opposed to the existence of slavery there, is, nevertheless, opposed to the deeds of murder, rapine, perjury, Ac., being perpetrated in the Territory by some of the loafing " chris tians ' of the Yankee emigrant aid societies, in the name of " freedem'g cause" in Kansas. We invite to these two letters the attention of those members of Con gress who recently voted for the Topeka con stitution to any end whatever, except in order to make Republican party capital: THB PKISOXIIH I.V CHAINS RELBASBD. Liwri.-?ce. K T , June 2?j, 1856. To the Editors oj the Missouri Democrat. On Saturday last, a company of five men came into our city from Tecumseh, where they had been confined for some time as prisoners. They were captured by the dragoons on or about the 27th of latt month, near Osawatta mie Their arms were taken from them, chains put upon their ankles, and driven thirty miles under the hot sun with the irons upon them, in front of the troops mounted on horses They were hurried along cn foot all day, without time being allowed them to get dinner and water on tho road. One of them described bis sufferings on that very warm day as horrible. At other times they were treated very weil The dragoons were under the command of Lieutenant Iverson. a rabid pro-slavery man, who ha.* no sympathy for free State men in his power. They wore the chain* upon their limbs for nearly four weeks, and when brought beforo Judge Cato they were discharged, as nothing could be found against them Three of the party captured were, however, retained : *"rs- Partrilge. John Brown, Jr , und Wil *w? letter are members of the Air.cas legislature The former was released on bail, and arrived here this morning. Four indictments were found against Mr. John Brown, Jr.? one for "high treason," 41 kid napping a slave, " "conspiracy," and one for ?? horse stealing," Mr W illixuis for high trea son; Mr. Partridge for conspiracy ; theoth"rs nothing against them?they have been impris oned nearly a month for no crime. Mr Brown came to Lawrc^ce to asaiet in ita defence a few days prior to the destruction of the hotel and printing presses, and f..r d< ing that he is in dicted for high treason by Judge Cato ' KANSAS ArrAJaB-KBri tal of falsehoods. , .. . Alcasv, July 4, lb56. Jidttofs At/as q- Argun :?Dear Sirs * An ^demand' *#W ^ Time8 ?f thla ing demands a pM8IDg notiee at my handa ?Vrf. Rt'i?1 mD * th? treatuittnt received by of whil? ?n the hands of the authorities in Tecum-eh, ia a deliber ate lie from beginning to end. manufactured th* purpose that hundreds of similar ones have been, namely, that of makii/ tk.e\ ,^P,iUf 7 ??it?ng tho sympathies of the North in favor of the criminal faction, who have long been trying to deluge the plaint of my late adopted home with the blood of their fellow citizens. It is true that a number of prisoners were brought te Tecumseh for trial, before a United States Commissioner; it is true that they were chained, for security on the journey. But it is a lie that they walked sixty-fire miles, or any distance, on loot while chained. They traveled in a wagon, guarded by true and rentable specimens of the red shirted Border Ruffian. I was in Tecumseh when they arrived and during their entire stay, and can assert that they were treated far better than they deserved. They were, of course, strictly guarded day and night, in a room in the hotel; brought down regularly to their meals at the hotel table; in fact, treated with every indulgence consistent with safe keeping. All this time they were in the hands of those terrible Border Ruffians, so graphi cally described by the New York Times and Tribune, as blood-thirsty monsters, with hands constantly steeped in the innocent blood of Abolitionists and Free Soilers Two of those men were sons of that atrocious monster, John Brown, sen., better known in the Territory aa ?' Ossawatamie Brown," the captain of that band of ruffians calling themselves " The Army of the North," who bad so recently committed a number of the most diabolical murders, aach individual case attended with acts of barbarity far exceeding anything ever perpetrated by savage Indians in the worst time of border warfare In fact, all of the prisoners were w^ll known to have formed part of this monstrous company at the time those atrocities were committed : and I would venture to say, if taken and guarded by citi zens of California under similar exciting cir cumstances, would have speedily obtained their deserts, " a short shrift and a merry leap" from a limb of the nearest tree As to the case of Tucker of Topeka, who happens to be a lawyer and not a doctor, I was the person who arrested him in my capa city of Deputy Sheriff, in the act of removing a horse, which had been concealed the night before, in a thick piece of brush on th? lands of a settler living near Topeka. llo was caught at 10 o'clock at night removing a horse with a saddle and bridle, all proved to have been stolen on the previous day from a man named Le Hay, a pro-slavery man. living six teen miles east of the Abolition town of To r ka. Four witnesses proved to the fact of nis coming to remove the horse from its place of concealment, and tvo of his comrades from Topeka proved that ho had not left town on the night the horse was stolen, which was the night previous to the ono on which he was ar rested This is tho alibi which, according to the Times correspondent, was proved by live or six witnesses, lie was held to bail, with two securities for $500 oach, to answer the charge of horse stealing. Since his committal, three persons have been discovered who met Tucker and an accomplice on horseback, within a few miles of the seen# of the robbery, about nightfall, on the lfith of June On that night, two horses wore stolen from Le Hay. and the house of a neighbor of bis with all its contents, burned to the ground. The custom and example of Illinois and Mis souri in their early days, and of California and Oregon at the present time, would have justified us in hanging Tucker from the near est tree. Had a pro-slavery man been de tected in tho act of horse-stealing by a party of Free-State men, his doom had been a short one Such is the difference between the so called border ruffians," and tho^e much-in jured, innocent Free-State men Hio former party have simply endeavored to enforce the laws and keep peace and quiet in the country ; while the latter have been setting law and order at defiance, murdering, under cover of night, isolated and defenceless settlers, but never daring to meet their adversaries in a fair and open field. Lying and boasting of | their intention to resist the laws, hut whenever an official of tho law came with an armed party, resistance was no longer spoken of? their object was accomplished?a g'?od case for lying was made out for tho abolition pa pers. Those individuals who are keeping up excitement in Kansas, cannot possibly care one fig whether it becomes a free or tlavo State, each and every of their acts tell ag.iinst their own interest and the cause they pretend to have at heart. If they really wished to make Kansas a free Stato. they would have cultivated peace, and peace only Fighting is not ther forte?they know nothing of it, and had better never have commenced it. I remainyours, Ac., IVn OkoGHAn, M. 1>. The Merrimac'B Boilers ?As reports have been put in circulation against the boilers of the United States steam frigate Merrimac, w<: publish the following?these boilers being constructed on the same model with those of the United States steam ship Susquehanna: A letter has been received from tho Chief La gineer of the United States steamer Susque hanna, speaking of the satisfactory perform ance of her engines and boilers ; also, copies of her logs for four days steering against light head winds without any assistance from her sails. Her average speed was two hundred and nineteen miles per day, with an average consumption of thirty-ono tons of coal per day, showing a saving of more than thirty-three per cent, over her former cruising, under tho same circumstances, with her old boilers. Eeing Consolidated ?Tho varl<u3 offices (clerk's apartments) of tho different bureaus of the Treasury Department are being con solidated. Up to this time they have been scattered over tho Treasury building, and ?ome of them in other buildings in the vicinity of that one. The recent removal of tho Land Office bureau from the Treasury building has afforded the Secretary an opportunity to sys tematize the location of his subordinates, of which he is availing himself; drawing in his offices located elsewhere and placing the clerks of each bureau in immediate juxtaposition with each other, by which means much really unnecessary labor and many vexatious delays in the transaction of the business of the De partment will be hereafter dispensed with. Mr. Ball's Resolution ?We understand, from gentlemen engaged in the construction bureau of tho Treasury Department that they are glad indeed that the accusations against the integrity of their office which have been, as usual, whispered around by disappointed applicants for contracts and their drummcra uud agents, have at length assumed definite shape in the movement of Mr. Ball in tho House yesterday, which will enablo those sought to be implicated, promptly to set them at rest. The I"ine?The fine (amount) in which Mr Brooks, of S. C., was mulcted by the Criminal Court for this county, on tho day before yes terday. for his assault on Senator Sumner, was to a penny, the penalty in which Ocn. Sam Houston was mulcted by our District Court, many years ago, for his assault on Hon. Mr. Stansbury, of Ohio, whom he attacked for words spoken in debate, beating him severely with a cane, it will be remembered.

Our farmers are all busily engaged in the height of their wheat and hay harvest; the yield of wheat is much better than was anticipated some few since, but the hay crop is nbort, owing to the dryness of the weather. The oats begin to look better, and prospects are favcrable for an average crop; the corn looks tolerably well, but both oafs and corn want rain badly. Cmahtrlurnl Civilian. COWQSESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the debate on the resolution from tho Printing Committee for printing JO.ftOO extra copies of the Senate's Kansas pacification bill was continned by Messrs. Toueey, Wade. Wil son, Bigler. Douglas, Hale, Stuart, Fessenden, Toombs. Crittenden, Pngh and Foster; when at 9 p. m the laid resolution was agreed to without a division The Senate then adjourned. In the Home, the pending resolution for the printing of 100,000 extra copies of the re ports of the Kansas Investigating Committee, (majority and minority) together with the tes timony taken by the said Committee, amend ed so as to reduoe the number of copies to 10,000, was adopted. Mr. Ball offered the following preamble and resolution, viz : Whereas, in an affidavit made in January. 1854, by Cornelius Wendell, who now holds the position of Printer to this body, and which affidavit reads a9 follows, to wit: "That Alanson Sweet, of Milwaukie. Wis consin, informed me that it cost him $10,000 for the alterations made in the Mobile custom bouse contract; that it was necessary to fix Mr. Young, the architect of the Treasury ; and that the $10,000 thus expended would bo more than doubled by the alterations he (Sweet) had thus procured to bo made; also, that to procure said alterations it was necessary to fix a friend of Mr. Guthrie, and that he had made the necessary arrangements to have him right. C. Wbkdkll. "Washington,January 14 1854 Subscribed and sworn to before me, J. W. Beck, J. P." it is charged that alterations in the manner of construction of the Mobile custom-house have b?en made by the architect and others entrusted with the construction of said build ing, at the instance of the contractor and for a consideration in money; and whereas other statements exist which tend to corroborate the same accusation, and also to specify others similar in character and in numerous in stances; and whereas it is the duty of the People's Representatives to inquiro into the truth of such allegations, when sustained by evidence such as to render their truth proba ble : Therefore? Resolved, That there be appointed by the Speaker a select oommltteo of five members, whose duty it shall be to inquire into the gen eral management and expenditures connected with the public buildings, or works construct ed or purchased or in process of construction by tho I nited States, of whatsoever descrip tion, whether at the seat of government or elsewhere ; and that said committee be au thorized to send for persons and papers, and to examine witnesses touching the manner of construction and the manner of awarding con tracts ; whether any bribes or fees have at any time been taken by any officer in the ser vice of the Government as a consideration for awarding any contract, or for making any changes m the original termsof any contract, or for making alterations in tho plan of Tiny work, or for using his influence in any manner in obtaining any contract orextracompei sation for ai.y person for such work, or for being in any other manner instrumental in aiding to defraud the Government; and that said committee be authorized to inquire into the capacity, as well as character for integrity, of any archi tect, superintendent, or any other officer; and that they have power to appoint aclerk to aid in tho performance of these duties, and also authorized to report, in whole or in part, at any time ^ After some conversation between Messrs. Clingman, Houston of Alabama, and Ball, the said preamble and resolution were ordered to be printed, and to be laid over until the next day. Air Campbell, of Ohio, called up his reso lution for the expulsion of Mr Brooks, and to censure Messri. EJmundson and Keitt, on ac count of the assault of Mr. Brouks on Senator Sumner. Mr. Cobb proposed a substi'ute for it de claring that that the House has no jurisdic tion over the case, and therefore declines in terfering in it. The House wero then addressed at some length by Messrs. Campbell, of Ohio, and Binghani for the original resolution, and Messrs. Clingman and Orr against it In the course of the remarks of Mr. Orr, that gentle man said : He believed that tho object was to operate upon the public mind with reference to the approaching election That was the founda tion of all this clamor; for who had ever be fore heard of a personal controversy between two individuals being magnified to the extent that this had been f This inornir.gover eighty members of the Hou.^e had voted to print one hundred thousand copies of the reports of the cunmittee at the public expense, showing that this report ^ras intended as an electioneering document, to be scattered over the North to assist the Republican party. Mr Hickman. I voted against the amend ment ol tho gentleman from Georgia to limit the number to ten thousand. Does the gen tleman say I voted for it as an electioneering document to assist the Republican party ? I say to the gentleman from South Carolina tiiat I did not vote for it as an elcstioneering document, and for tho simple reason that I owe no allegiance to tho Republican party I am opposed to it. Mr. Orr. All I havo to say in reply to the gentleman is, that if ho has no affiliation with the Republican party his position is very much misunderstood throughout the country. Mr. Hickmau. And I say The Speaker Does the gentleman from South Carolina yield the floor f Mr Orr. The gentleman from Pennsylva nia can reply if I have said any thing" that touches him But Mr Nichols objected. So Mr Hick man was not r.ermittcd to respond further. When they adjourned, Mr. Comins was en titled to the floor. Proc??dl?u? ? ' To-JJay.

Elliott, Houston of Alabama, Greenwood' Ball, Barksdale, McMullen and Florence Mr M^Mullin moved to amend it by strik ing out the portion authorizing the committee to make reports in part from time to time ; not agreed to The said resolution was then passed. The Speaker appointed Messrs. Ball, Ken nett, Burnett, King of New York, and Cal wallader, on the said committee. The House then proceeded with the consid eration of tho resolution reported from the select committee on the Brooks and Sumner affair by Mr Campbell, of Ohio, when Mr Comins delivered a speech in furor of that resolution. Ihk National Convention of cigar mak ers which met in New York last week, after a stormy debate decided to have nothing to do with the slavery question. They resolved to take earnest measures against Senator James tariff bill. They also adopted resolu tions tending to equalise the prices of oigars and tobacco, and looking to the assembling of an annual National Convention. They also propose memorializing Congress for a tariff bill laying a duty of 30 per cent on all imported cigars, and admitting the unmanufactured ar ticle freo. There were also resolutions offered to establish a Trade Union for the protection of journeymen cigar makers and the trade generally.
