The Union, to-day. discourses 'f the recent ly-paased resolves of the Virginia Legislature, urging the admission of Kansas into the I nion on the Locompton Constitution, taking occasion to compliment tho State in so doing for her in variable adherence to democratic principle amid all the natations of politics and all the momentary storms in political affairs which so f requently drift other States from their politi cal moorings. The InteUigencer again returns to its con test with the Union upon the question of the precise meaning of the resolve? upon the Kan sas question recently adopted by the Indiana Legislature. ID" The message of Governor Randall was delivered to the Wisconsin Legislature on Fri. day. Among other matters, he discusses the banking law ol the State, and advises such action as Is calculated to check the evils growing out of it, recommends an investigation of the charges of bribery, corruption, and the distribution of the public lands under the act of 1?5Q; advocates the Pacific railroad by a northern route; discusses the slavery question at length, takes a strong States' right ground, and Is opposed to the federal en croachment for the benefit of the slave power. 1ET A mysterious murder has recently occurrcd at Memphis. An Irish woman, known as Big Mary, the keeper of a l?oarding house. Is living with her seventh husband Three of lier former husbands and her son have met their fate in ber gloomy abode. and her other husbands died by violence, The other night the nephew of this singular woman was mysteriously murdered in the same house, where his remains were found bv the police, surrounded by some twenty of the inmates of the bouse on their knees praying for the repose of the soul. The case Is involved in mystery. Dehaxd ior Damages.?Robert a. Craig, a British subject at Punt.i Arenas, lias demanded damages of the I nited States for losses sustained by him in the seizure of Walker's expedition by 1 ?m l*au!dii?g. He alleges that he rented to Walker a part of his premises, and that he had a large quantity of provisions in his warehouse, be longing to W alker, at a stipulated rate of storage per month. on each package; and al-o that head vane? d on the security of the provisions the sum of S50Q. The provisions, he alleges, were forci bly sei/ed by order of Com Paulding, and much of his private property carried ott'. Mr. Craig has forwarded a copy of his complaint to Lord Clarendon. The K.vxsas Llkcti<>s.?The advices from Karisdft relative to the recent election held in that Territory, says a telegram, continue of a contra dictory character. The Leavenworth Times of the iMh instant, nays the reports from the different parts of the Territory indicate the succcss of the entire free t*tate ticket; while the vo?e against the Lecomp ton constitution will probably exceed I5,W>0. The Lawrence correspondent of the St Louis Democrat says that as far as heard froin the free State party has secured thirty-one outof the four ty-four Representatives, and fourteen out of the nineteen Senators, and the vote against the con stitution is about equal to that polled at the Oc tober election. A gentleman who left the Territory on the 11th states that it was then believed that the demo oratic State ticket was elected The Robertson Case.?The prosecution in the case of John H Robertson, nuW ou trial at Rochester. N. ^ for an attempt to prison his wife, rested their case on Friday at noon. Coun sel opened the defence with a speech of an hour, in which he gave the outline of the defence. They will try and show ihit young Dr Bie?_'ler, backed by bis father, was :? conspirator ngiiinst Robertson, and that his motive was to avoid the payment of loaned and expended on his father's trial last spring. Several witnesses f..r the dtferce were examined tbi* afternoon, and among them were Mrs Robertson, lite wife of the defendant, her two brothers and several neighbor* and relations?all of wli'iu testified to the good characterof the defendant,and the hap py domestic domestic relations always existing between him ai d his wife Mrs R swore that her married lift had been the happiest part of her life, in every particular, ard contradicted much of Biegler's evidence. The Case or Suitu ?District Attorney Mann, in his opening argument argument for the Com monwealth, at Philadelphia, on Saturday, in the case of Thomas W. Smith, now on trial for the murder of Mr. Carter, President of the Tamaqua Bank, combatted the plea of insanity, but says that ??there has never been a case in which my duties aud mv sympathies have been so continu ally in conflict. I have never prosecuted a man whom I so sincerely pitied. The defendant ap pears t" be a man of very warm feelings?a sin ?ere /.???:?d and devoted husband. As such I honor b.ui; would that wc had more men in the community like him " Mr. Thayer, for the defence, who succeeded Mr. Mann, pre-ented the various points in the caae. especially those whi' h related to the al leged insanity of the prisoner. The case will probably be given to the jury to day or to-morrow David Paul Brown, Esq., for the defence, and District Attorney Longhead are yet to speak. The sympathy for the prisoner is very great and increasing. The statement of his sister has had the effect to deepen this sympathy. Ihpoitast FaoM Mexk The New Orleans papers bring fu-ther details of the Mexican news by the steamer Tennessee. The recent revolutionary proceedings at the capital have been most unfavorably received in many parts of the interior, a large number of States have declared violently against the new order of things Even a number of the principal towns, and among them Vera Cruz, which at first pronounced in favor of it, have since repu diated it. A formidable military coalition is already organizing against it; troop* are in uio t.on in many paits of the Republic, and a civil war. or another change in the executive poWer seem? to be imminent. The vio.^at breaking up and dispersion of the federal Congress wa* followed by an equally violent manifesto or protest on their part, couched In the niont violent and intemperate language. This curious document was signed by eighty-six P'i ies, itian ?(juoium, but many names have since been a.t? hed to It, doubtles, as mem ber. made up their mind, to uke sides with this party or with that It fallowed by a manifesto from the newly created him self, which was a long, dull a?rt . document.

All here who see beneath the surface of affairs, already realise that so far as any danger from tbeiu Is concerned, both these issues are practically out of the way, with not a tithe of tho trouble growing out of either of them that was anticipated two months ago. Jf Congress does its duty with reference to the Utah question, (and we can perceive no reason now to doubt that it will do so,) that matter, too, will cause the National Adminis tration little or no embarrassment whatever. The Military Committees of the two Houses are in possession of the plans of the President and War Department for solving that particular difficulty, so far as the co-operation of Congress in that work may be necessary; which said plans are understood to meet their hearty ap proval. We anticipate that in less than thirty days tho requisite legislation to relieve Con gress from any responsibility whatever for se curing a satisfactory end of the Utah imbroglio very early next season, will have taken place. Ihe only remaining difficulty that can pos sibly beset the path of the present National Administration will grow out of the restless ness of gentlemen who may aspire to tho next Democratic national nomination. As there are a doscn or so public men who fancy themselves entitled to it, or at least to scheme for it, as a matter of course embarrassments may grow out of their eonflicting efforts to achieve it. Such aspirations are at the bottom of nine tenths ot the political somersaults prominent Democrats have "thrown" of late, and will bo at the bottom of nearly all the political ex travagancies or ultraisms others of them may indulge in until the spring of 1860. There is no possible cure for that ailing, nor do we think it very dangerous to tho public interest. Experience teaches that the only suro result of effort* to secure the Presidency, based on schemes for thwarting the policy of tho Demo cracy in any particular, is political martyrdom J for the over-ambitious essaying them. The Extension of the Orange and Alex I asduia Railroad.?A friend tells us that there is doubt whether the Virginia Legisla I ture will appropriate, at its preseut session, I or the continuation of this now most important improvement under construction in the United States. We confess to skepticism as to the possibility that the State of Virginia will de liberately sacrifice her previous heavy in\est ments in this improvement after having pushed it t> a point when, with a comparatively very small additional investment, she can evidently make the whole perhaps more profitable thaL any other such investment made by her own or any other American State Legislature. The w-irk in question is the only link re maining to be constructed to afford continuous railway connection between this city and the Mississippi at Memphis, with many divergences by rail running through different portions o! J ennessee. Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana to tne Oult coast; and North, through different portions of Tennessee. Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, to the shores of the great lakes. When completed the line will afford not only a much shorter means of passing from east to west, ar.d from east to north and southwest than any other line of railroad now open, but through an almost virgin country, possessing a far more agreeable climate than anj other traversed by any line of railroad in the United States. Indeed it cannot be that the Legisla ture ot Virginia will fail to secure for the peo ple of the region of the State the road is to pass through the profits ot the immense passenger trade that cannot fail to accrue to the finished improvement, it is destined to b,- greater even than that of the Baltimore and Ohio work or the great I'ennsylvaiiia line from Philadel phia to Pittsburg. Its incidental drippings into the pockets ol the Virginians, a consider able portion of which must g.? into the Old Do minion s (State) treasury, will be worth an im mense sum annually. Should the Legislature fail to do its best to secure the completion of the work at the earliest possible moment, un der existing circumstances its members will richly deserve to be "cut for the simples'' on returning to tLeir constituents. Appointments bv the President?Jiy and the. advice and consent of the, Scuute. John Appleton, cf Maine, to bo Assistant Sec retary of Mate of the United States; Richard K.

Counting their Chickens Before Thev ARE HATCHED.-The New York Tribune i. calculating largely upon the advantages that have accrued and are jet destined to accrue to the Republican party organiration from the late political labors of Messrs. R. J. Walker and S. A. Douglas. That journal proclaims^ in effect, that the upshot of their opposition to he policy of the national Executive and the Democracy upon the question of the acceptance of the Lccouipton Constitution by Congress, is to be the election of the simon pure Republi can party 1 residential nominee in 1N?>0. What ?tssilly prognostication is worth, may be judged rom the f.ict that it at the same tine declares that the Scuth in Congress has abandoned the ?dea of seeking to compass the admission of Kansas into the Union as a State, with that Con stitution ; for which assertion there is no shadow of Inundation in truth, whatever. ' While its facta are so baseless, there is little fear that its tancy will prove more truthful. The Theatre.?To-night, Mr. Dion Bourci cault plays Sir Charles Coldstream, in bis own great comedy, "The Used Up Man."

A. b.. r^d -o jHq.ular at the North-Millv Senator Brow* has written to the New York Ilrrald denying the statement of that journal and the Tribune, that ho declined con tinuing his Kite apecch upon the Knnaa* ques tion because disposed to abandon his position in favor of the admission of the Territory aa a State into the Union. lie says he prefers dia eua'ing the question legitimately; that ia, on the direct proposition it.?elf. which must soon come up, to its discussion on an abstract pro position to refer and print the Message ; and henfce his declension He declares that hi?d those journals attributed his declension to pro ceed with his speech to the fact that he consid ers the question virtually settled in favor of his own views ot the fitness of things, they would have been much nearer the mark. The Soi'th o* William Walker.?We are glad to perceive that sober second thought is vindicating itself?its proverbial wisdom?in the altered tone of the great mass of tho South ern press, with reference to the filibuster Walker and his schemcs of murder, arson and robbery in Central America. Our Southern exchanges of all parties are now reaching us graced with unstinted praise of the views of the President's late message on the subject, and indignant comments upon the efforts of those mixed up with Walker's schemes to keep up the pretence that the interests of the South are involved in the success of his application of the "higher law'" theory.

By the America, at Halifax. The Royal Mail steamer America from Liver pool on Saturday, the lid instant, has arrived at Halifax. Among the passengers by the America are M i dame Lola Moutez, Countess of Land*feldt.( who was recently married lo the Prince of Shalosky. In Paris,) and suite. Col. Charles Hurgthal, of Philadelphia, bearer of despatches for the United States government from Paris, and Mr Aliibone and family, of Philadelphia. The America ha* one hundred and forty-two soldiers and two officers of the sixty-second regi ment for Halifax. M . Blondeel has been appointed Belgian Min ister t<> Washington. The political news by this arrival is not of an Important nature. Financially it is quite favor able. There was a continued growing ease In the Knglish money market, but no reduction of the rate of interest by the bank has taken place. The holidays had checked all kinds of busi ness. Little or nothing had been done since Thursday. The details of the Indian news by the over land mail contain little news in addition tn the dispatches from Trieste, reported by the North American. The loss of the rebels at Lurknow ?was esti mated at 7,(lfi0 men. The U. S. steam frigates Minnesota and San Jacinto, and the sloop-of-war Portsmouth, were at Hong Koug. Great Britain The British revenue returns for the year show a decrease in receipts for the last quaiter of about ?N*I,(V4) sterling, and a decrease oil the year of about ?I,P(KJ (HIO stciliug This decrease princi pally arises from reduced taxation, although the commercial depression had a material inttueuce towards the close of the year.

No new failures had occurred, and the year closed more favorably than was anticipated.

Utah Newt?All Well ! [From the St. Louis Republican, January 14.] We have received late intelligence from l7tah. The anny went through the South Pass on the 24th of September, and on tbe 25th hos'illtie* on the part of the Mormons commenced. They fired on the picket, who were guarding the mule herd, and then attempted to stampede the mules. The movement, temporarily successful, failed, as the entire herd was recovered on the*ameday. No cavalry being on tbe ground, however, the marauders escaped. Nothing more was seen of them until the 27th, when, approiching tireen river, some five or six Were observed, but they fled before the advance guard could reach them The army concentrated at Ham's Fork, and on the 3d Octol>er the Mormons burned three supply trains containing some of the Commissary store*. They also succeeded In running off the oxen. On the 2d and 5th, they burned the grass, but the army succeeded In extinguishing the Haines before thev reached the camp. On the llth, the party started up Ham's Fork to go to Salt Lake City, the train of mule and ox

wagons stretching out some six or seven miles, consequently moving but slowly. When within a mile of the Otegon road, a party mounted upon mules Was sent to prospect a load over to Hemy's Fork. This patty fell in with about fifty Mor mons comin ' toward the camp. Captain Marcy, who was in command of the prospecting party, approached near enough for speech with their leader before they were recognized as American troops, when they at once made oft?no harm being attempted toward them, such being the in struction of Colonel Alexander. A party which started later, in the same diiecticn. numbering eight men. met the *ame party, put them to flight, ate a < omfoitable breakfast the party had cooked but lefr in their baste to dy, and brought two mules of the routed larty into camp Tbe ,M?i mons t?eing mounted on pouie-, they outrnn the mules <if tl.e soldier* The first severe snow "form was on the nipht of the IGth of October.
