If it were the aim of tboeo who apply suca term3 of opprobrium to c ur Na tional Legislature, not only to destroy tbe confidence cl the popple in tho integrity of Congress, but also to impress upon that body the very character which is imputed to it, they could not have chosen a more efficient means by which to hasten and render inveter ate the very deterioration which they profess to deplore. Thus, when the Congas has once been stripped of the confidence repoeed in it bj tbo nation, it will be not uore&son*. ble to expert that only they who have but little character to lose will be forward in a5 piricg to its doubtful honors It is surely idle to hope that the honor and repute of Con gress can be raised by taking out of the way all incentives to honorable ambition, and by nndenninitg tbe very ground upon which ail pnde of character u built.

The Impeachment Case.?As a matter of interest to *.Qose who regard the bench and its purity af. subjects of grave concern, we re public, from the Richmond Emqnirtr of the l"<b inst , a few remarks, which go at once to the point. Speaking of tho impeachment of Judge Watrous of Texas, and the necessity of speedy despatch of tho case, tha Enquirer says : "No man who respects the bench can read the charges made by Mr. Spencer of Texas, and presented by Mr Boll, of that State, without feelings of indignation either against a man. who, wearing the ermine, deserves such charges, or against any man, or set of wen, who would make them falsely. Tha | ends of justice and the character of the ac cused, alike demand the proper settlement of the case. Although a matter of special interest to Texas, it yet affects the whole i oountry ; and now, while the enemies of law and the constitution are arraying them selves against the Supreme Court, Congress should be prompt to vindicate both." This article, from such a paper as the En | qnirer (and it seems to b? the centiment of the entire press) demands that an end shall be put to this matter by confronting the cccused and his accusera face to face. The sooner some steps are taken the better. it is only noee^sary for us to remark that the single charge published in the Enquirer is but one of many equally, if not m<?re ee vere, brought by others against Judge \Va trous, the Sovereign State of Texas being one <>f tbeso accusing witnesses. lue Minnesota Railroad Land Donating Bill.?The Hon Mr Hire, the de'egate from Minnesota, requests us to ropublish the letter to the Columbus (Ohio) Statesman herewith appended. We do a > with cheerfulness be ; causo rccGgniiing the propriety of affording the Minnesota friends of the bill to which it relates a full and fair opportunity to be beard by the public, as they allege that thair inter ests are compromised deeply in the charges with reference to the measure wlii'h havo given rise to the Investigating Committeo of the House now meeting daily. [Correspondence of the Ohio Statesman j Chicago, Jan 12,1857. i observe that during the session of tho House of Representatives on Friday last, the fo lowing r< solution was offered by Mr Kelsej : WLemaa, Certain statements have been pub lUhed, cberglnv the members cf this House with entering int > a corrjpt combination for the pur pese cf passing and of preventing the passage of certain inca ur<*s now before Congress ; therefore, Rriolv.d, Tbat a committee of live member* bs appointed by the Speaker, with pawcr to send for persons and papers to lnves igate said charges, and tbat the committee report the evidence to be I :: t .1 and what action, in their judgment, 1? mceasary ou the part of the House, wltbout un 1 necessary delay. The resolution wa? predicated upon some editorial articles whi'h appeared in the New York Times of the 6th, and I doubt not the articles were written and the resolution offer ed for the purpose of again ueteating the bill making a grant of land to Minnesota tor rail Kadi. New York railroad companies and New York land jobbers have heretofore formed the great impediment to the grant of land for railroads in Minnesota, and why I cannot di vine, as roads through our Territory would bo cf much advantage to the New York roads In this case it appears the bill will be kill ed with kindness, as the great charge appears to be that money was offered for votes for the bill?but why an offer of the kind should be made, except for the express purpose of get ting up a feeling against the bill, 1 am at a , loss to know Minnesota has an able, ener- ! gctic and efficient delegate in the House. ?om petent to represent the interests of the Terri tory, and nei her Minnesota nor her friend? wish tor the money or interference of the lobby ageuis of the New York speculators, and she certainly does not wish tho land to be placed under the control of any company outside the Territory. The bill, s: it stands now, gives the land to i the Territory, to be disposed of by the Legis ture of the Territory Why, then, this pre tended anxiety of certain parties in New York for the expenditure of money to secure the passage <f the bill? Because they are de termined to defeat its passage, and this is fcmoi.g the tactics used for that purpose. They do n t wi-li to see so large an amount of land dispcaed of where they can hope for no part. cipancy in its proceeds. But will Congrats be duped by this trick of the Now York sharks ? It is to be hoped not Lands have been granted to Iowr, W isconain, and Illinois, three great and prosperous States around the Territory of Minnesota, and in the name of justice we ask that the natural advantages the now possesses for political prosperity bo not legislated away from her Congress beckons her into the Union, and it is hard to suppose that Congress intends to cripple her, to check her settlement, to bind up her resources, and to limit her prosperity at the- moment she is ar ked to assume the respon sibilities of a State organization Like the States around her. Minnesota re quires the development of her rosourocg. She, too, has lands that should be opened to settle ment?she, too, wishes to increase her popula tion, and would provide employment for the laboring flashes within her limits?she, too, wishes to extend her commerce and provide additional agricultural facilities for the inte rior settlements. The States around her receive five percent on the sale of the publio land Congress has enablwd them to opan to settlement, and must Minnesota, in the mfat^y of her State organi z ition, I e debarred the benefit* she should derive from a fund obtained lrom the same resource ? Mu~t Minnesota bo legislated into the ne eefsity of building up towns in the States ud jciuir.g her. while her own commercial points I are doomed to decay and ruin? Wiil Con 1 gress biLd up hor prosperity while that of her j neighbors is bountifully expanded ? We ?an i.'.t believe that even the cunning of the New York land jobbers, and their agents at Wash ington. will be able to consummate so gross an act of ii justice Minnesota, although peculiarly dependent upcn Co: gresj, asks nothing that has not been fieely accorded to her powerful neighbors; but she does ask that the may have the satno privileges, the same advantages and the same benefits that the States around her have re ceived Minnesota has never asked for the expenditure of one cent that would not put a thousand fold into the United States Treasury. She has sever caused an expenditure for In dian depredations aud Indian wars, and no Territory has ever, in the same length of time, eo liberally contributed to the national fund She feels, therefore, that she is now entitled I to be placed by Congress upon the same foot ! ing, and that >he should have the same facili ties afforded for opening her lands to settle u?eut that has been afforded her neighbors. There is, there can be, no doubt that tho r*|u:%l cf Congress to aOord the facilities to Minuesota for opening the interior to settle ment will prolong her Territorial Condition |Iow can it be otherwise ? Wisconsin and low* both havo liberal grants, which will i fettlemeiUof portions of those States heretofore inaccessible to tho settler. They lc<,uc^nta for settlement, and ?

Will that enlightened b*dy be si grossly duped by a few unprincipled land tobbera7 It is to be hoped not. Let even itnded justice prevail-let the rights of our citiiens be protected?let our Territory have the same legislative advantages tbat has been bestowed upon her neighbors, and Miuneaota will soon become one of the finest States in tho West. A Mi.nmisotiak CoitoB-HooM and "Poet Office at Dflbaque Iowa ?The Secretary of the Treasury has purchased two lots on the corner of Ninth and Doust streets, in Dubuque, as a site for the new custom hou3e, authorized to be erected in that city, for the sum of $20,000 Thi? lot, being in an angle between the two prinoipal streets of the city, and eqai distant from the principal hotels, is peculiarly eligible. and cannot fail to give satisfaction to all classes of the citizens of that city. Land Warrants?The Financial Circular of Sweeny, Rittenhouse, Fantl Co., bankers, far January 24, says: " In consequenoe <>f the snow storm, no mails hare arrived for one week North or South, (until this morning,) which has prevented the usual supply of Land Warrants from coming into market, and the Western orders referred to in our last, not having been previously filled, prices have jumped up two cents per acre, and may be quoted active at the following rates, via : Butihs.

In tue House, on motion of Mr. Faulkner the Committee of the Whole was discharged from the further consideration of the bill for the relief of C . M R Kennedy. Mr. McMuilen moved to reconsider it Pending the question on this motion? The Sergeant-atArms appeared at tho bar with Joseph L.Chester, the W ashing ton cor respondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer, in his custody, arrosted for contumacy as a wit ness before the current investigating commit tee Mr. Kelsoy moved that he be interrogated by the Speaker, that if willing so to do he might purge himself of his contempt of the authority of the House. Mr. Letcher moved that he be required to answer in writing, and under oath. Mr Todd opposed that motion, and Mr Ste phens advocated it briefly; when it was agreed to. Mr. Wade asked leave to move a resolution | directing the discharge of Mr. Chester from the custody of the Sergeant-at.Arms, if he will answer such proper questions as the Committee may put to him.
