One witness testified that young Biegler had naid that .Mr. Rolwrtson had pressed him lor the money due from his father, but that he had cords ?o tight around Robertson's ne. k thai the moiier would come from the other way; also, that Bieg ler had said that if he couid but have his own wai he would l>e the only witness against thed? - fendant Mr Dunklee. the cashier of the Zimmerman Bank, was sworn He Mid that the defendant was negotiating to raise money and take the pres idency of the said Bank; and that th<- nlnetv, eighty and seventy days which appeared in the evidence of the prosecution doubtless, referred to the time in which the defendant must raise the money*. In the afternoon session the conversation of young B? igler, about ' having cords around de fendant's n??ck."' was corroborated by two wit nesses By another witness it was proven that the defendant was out of the city at a time when Biegler swears he was at his office for medicine to poison his wife.

Wise to the Tammany Society is one of the iuost unaccountable occur rences of the day. It has filled his enemies with exultation, the Democratic party with amazement, and the friends of the Administra tion, of which he was regarded as one of the warmest and most able supporters, with un speakable chagrin. The baneful agitation of the three past years, which has convulsed the country nnd shaken the Democratic organization to its foundations, hud arrived at its final crisis. A settlement of the Kansas question by Congress, and dismissal of it, in some form, from the national delibera tions. had become absolutely necessary to the public safety, and was about to be finally effected. The united South, and almost entire Northern Democracy in Congress, had settled upon tho proper action to be taken?not a course of action, perhaps entirely free from objection, or squaring in every particular with abstract theories of politics; but the best which the manifold complications of the ease practi cally admitted of. Fx-Governor W alker, who had lost the con* fideuce of the Democracy in the same degree in which he had won that of the Republican party, had raised his voice against this action, amid the applauses of the Abolitionists and the execrations of the Democracy. Senator Doug las, following in his wake and echoing his sen timents. had excited tho same manifestations of joy from the opposition and disappointment and mortification in his own party. The De mocracy had resented the conduct of Messrs. Douglas and Walker, not so much for the ab stract doctrines and arguments they advanced in support of it, as tor the conduct itself, which, in the pending emergency, was precisely that to entail the greatest amount of mischief upon their own causc, and to contribute the most elective aid and comfort to their enemies?con duct which, however patriotically inteutioned. was calculated to have all the rffcrt of vindic tive treason to their organization. Hut not even (lie defection of these Northern men had availed to endanger tho policy of the democratic party. Their appeals to their own section were so u>! ruptaihlKm, so repulsive to the sound sentiment of its conservative men. so acceptable to its factionists and abolitionists; and their motives were so open to question and imputation, that no difficulty was appre hended by tho conservative party in Congress in consummating the policy they had contem plated for the final dismissal of the Kansas question lroui the national councils. It was just as the difficulties that had thus been thrown into the path of the party by W alker and Douglas, had been trodden down under its heavy tramp, and as unex peetedly as a clap of thunder trom a clear sky, that this Tammany letter of Governor Wise, came to astound the Democracy and to extort exultations from their enemies. Coming from a profes-ed friend of the Administration, and not from a mere unfriendly coadjutor in the Democratic organization- coming from a Southern man in opposition to the unanimous sentiment of the Southern representatives in Congress and to the policy t?r which u North ern I resident and a laige Democratic repre sentation trom the North had incurred so much reproach and obloquy in their own section and not from a Northern man hard pres ed by abo litiondom at home and bending before a florin l;e dared not defy -c>.iuiiig from the Kxecutivc head of the mother State of the South as a gratuitous act called tor by no official duty and impelled by i,.. official oath binding u,h,? the conscience ; this letter, under all thecir .?um-t.mce under which it appears, i< one of 'lie most unfortunate occurrences that has hap pened since the advent ot the present Admin istration As a blow t., the brave National Democrat* ??t the North from a Southern coad jutor- as an assault n|MI? tho policy of the Aduiinistratien tr<.ui one of it? most valued and cherished friends, it is the, / t? ?t letters We shall not enter into any painstaking ex a mutation of the doctrines and arguments of this singular production, easy as it w uld be to re lute them; for it-evil and mischief are not in its theories and reasonings, but jn the fact that such a letter should have come fr?'*n Gov ernor Wise?an evil and mischief which the most conclusive refutation would not cure in the least No excellency of doctrine or cogency of argument can aflcet the issue now joined and closed between the Democracy and its enemies, one way or the other, and tho misfortune of the letter lies iu the fact that, at tho very mo ment of action, after the order of battle is de cided on. and the hostile forces arc arrayed [ lor the final and decisive struggle, an imjtor tant of! cer refuses to fight, files vff in a vain parade on m itral ground, and enters upon an elaborate harangue to the advantage o! the enemy. We repeat, we will not argue patiently with such a disputant in such an emergency. Gov ernor Wise plunges in the .dough ol abstrac tions and contradictions into which every one involves himself who espouses the absurdity of popular sovereignty in a Territory The ah surdity of his assumption, that individuals are sovereign before the S'.ate is sovereign where the population is yet incohesive ; where there is no family, or neighborhood, or consist ent community; where there is not a single fixed institution, or the first clement of stable serene sovereignty , where every public func tion ia performed by Federal agency, or under Federal authority and popilagr t? Co),cress is stamped uj?on every circumstam o and pro cedure, is too manifest to need giavc refuta tion. II such fine spun theories as these of Messrs. Wise. Walker and Douglas needed any answer, it would be easy to show that their whole ar gument agaiu-t the President'* |*?Iicy. predi cated upon the idea of squatter sovereignty, is fallacious and untenable*. How came the cit izens of Virginia, Carolina, Massachusetts, I ennsylvania, hngland. Ireland, France, Ger many, who live lor the moment in Kansas Territory, "sovereign people What poten tial efficacy is there in that happy region that constitutes the accidental and discordant as semblage of adventurers congregated there from all quarters of the jy?rth, a sovereign power, like those of \ irginiaor Pennsylvania or New ^ork?great commonwealths which won the high franchise at the end of seven years of war and indescribable suffering' The sover eignty of these gentlemen is a myth, a will o' the wi-p. calculated only to involve its follow ers, the wirie men and giauts. in inextricable quagmires.

Jim Lane may yet find that the practice of the theories of Messrs Doti"las Walker and Wine will cost him his neck. The renowned ISrigham Young claims the rights of sovereignty as belonging inherently to the in hnbitantsof I'tah ; and the chances are that for oirrying his theory into practice Hrigham will hang. The position of Governor Wise on the subject Is not uiore strange and deplorable in a public point of view than it is inconsistent with his own previously declared opinions. He de nounces the Leeompton schedule as a fraud upon ?he sovereigns of Kansas, from the fact of its hnving failed to submit the whole Constitution to the voters of the Territory; although he hituself hnd. in a letter of November Kith last, declared that it was optional with the Leeomp ton Convention to submit the instrument or not. We quote from hirf letter of that date : 4> But, if upon precedent, the Convention of Kansas adopts a republican form of government, and reports it to Congress, without submitting it to thr people. I agree with Mr Hunter in ac cepting it and voting to rettive Kansas asn State ?slave or fret?into the Union. And why? Be cause, first, of precedent; and secondly, whether it l?e accepted or rejected, it has to be submitted, or is rejected at last, in either event, to the popu* lar will If a majority do not approve of the constitution, they n.ay organise another Conven tion immediately, mid adopt any republican form, after th?y arc once a {State, without submitting it at all to Congress " .Such was Governor Wise's opiuion in No vember; and it not only shows that the action of the Leeompton Constitution, which he now denounces as a fraud, had his previous sanc tion. but in it he states the conclusive reasons why the action, if taken, could not effect a fraud. Contrast these sound and conservative utter ances of Governor Wise on the ltith of Novem ber with the following expressions of Decem ber 30th. We quote from his Tammany letter ; " That [I.ecompton] Convention was, tie jure, legitimate It formed a constitution, and had a right to form it. That was its function, and there its power ended, except to submit it. as a proposed organic law. to the fair and free elec tion of the sovereign people, to h adopted or to be rejected bv them They, in their organized being of legal voters, are alone sovereign The entire constitution ought to have been submitted to their lawful voices at the polls. " The power tray not delegated to thei Conven tion to proclaim and establish a State constitu tion ; it had to be approved by Congress, and much lll'?r* had it to he approvtd hi/ the sovereign principals tor whom the mere agent?the Conn n t ion?acted.'" * * # " What ! tell us that an instrument of this' dignity, that republican government itself, was not to be submitted, in its form and plan proposed, to the onlv lawful sovereigns, the organized people ?" # i # # "There wa* a usurpations Withholding from them of a fair, free, full, and equal election to eboose or not to c hoose their own constitution of self-government " * # # ?This was but the unveiled treachery and shameless fraud of a so called schedule."' Uu{ the Leeompton Convention did not abso lutely withhold the Constitution from the peo ple, as Governor Wise had conceded it the right to do. in advance, but submitted the very gist and pith of controversy?the slavery question? to popular vote. Nay, this clause was not only submitted, but was carried by a legal and con stitutional affirmative vote. The question of accepting the action of the Convention, has thus become more than one of formal proprie ty?has become a question of Congressional fair dealing with the South J ho whole Kansas issue is thuc resolved into the question whether the admi'sion of Kan -"as under the Leeompton Constitution shall be refused by Congress because the instrument embodies slavery?a -l ivery clause merely in the letter, although, in fact it i<. notorious that the clause can be voted out by the new State it it sees lit to do so. in the first month after admi-vion. It is a question simply of honor and principle with the South, and not of any substantial advantage. True. Messrs. Walker, Douglas ami -Wise, attempt to elude this issue by trying to create another based on the fiction ot popular sovereignty in a territory but the i-sue before the country between the Republican party and the Democracy is solely whether Kansa-' shall be denied admission on account of slavery m the letter of her consti tution. ihus the Kansas question has assumed pre cisely the form indicated by .Mr Hunter in one of his recent Virginia letters when. allu<ling to the Leeompton Convention, he said : I not conclude, however, without .ven turing the prediction, if any serious attempt should made in Congress to reject the appli cation of Kansas for admission as a State into the I iiion, because the convent ion did not submit the const it ut I on for a farther ratification by the I pie. it will only occur in the event of the adop tion of a pro-slavery organic l;iw. Is Virginia, then, prepared to reject the application of agister slave State to be received into the t nion. merely because its convention has exercised its undoubt ed powers in the same way with manvother States, which have act^d similarly, without prejudice to their claims for admission into the Confederacy' I do not doubt it for a moment." Notwithstanding Mr. Hunter's incredulity. Governor Wise has put himself in a position, if not intentionally and literally such as Mr. Hunter protested against, yet. wherein all bis personal. |?olitical and official influence enures to the benefit of the party opjmsing the admis sion of Kansas under its regular constitution, on account of the slavery clauso. We rejoice to sco that the Virginia Legislature without a dissenting voice, has relieved that great com monwealth from the imputation of occupying a position, antagonistic to the whole South antagonistic to the national democracy, antag onistic to the Administration Thf $*7,000 Cask.?Really, it is likely to appear to the uninitiated at a distance, that the House will have little opportunity to accom plish aught this winter but the vindication of its own honor. Its numerous select committees to investigate charges of corruption must look to them as if the great task of the National Legislature at present is to keep itself and those employed by it, straight We are quite sceptical as to the wisdom of so much fuss over irresponsible allegations, as nearly all of them are that are being investigated. The last com mittee raised seems to us to have been pre maturely authorized. The only basis for rais ing it is the allegation of a failing firm admitted to have conducted its affairs dishonestly, that $*7,000 of its missing funds went to compass the passage of a certain bill through Congress. The investigation into the affnirs of the firm by the creditor's committee do not show, as we understand the case, the discovery of the scratch of a pen going to prove the truth of the allegation. At the rate of $H7,000 expended in lobbying the bill through Congress by a single firm not more interested in its passage than a thousand others equally as active for its enact ment, what must have been the expenditure, or rather waste of money, to that end ' Js it not impossible that any such sum as $S7,000 could have been so disbursed here without at tracting * Mention at the time, with so many eyes and busy-pens upon nil persons who in these times es.-ay to get bills through by im proper influences' Not a whisper escaped concerning this affair at the time, which to our mind, with the other facts mentioned above proves clearly that the *87.000 story was man ufaelured of whole cloth, as the most conve nient way to avoid accounting for a fraudulent use of the money by some one counected with the failing house. Two or three legitimate legislative attorneys were understood at the time to lie employed in endeavoring to induce the enactment of the bill. There was nothing either concealed or improper in their connec tion with the business; but their pay could not have amounted in the aggregate to a tenth ol the sum which Lawrence. Stone A Co. profess *o to have expended. SrNATons Hr>reR ami> H.o.mond ?The New \ ork Jlrm/U promptly contnulicts a fool ish "Washington Correspondence'' story, at tributing to these two distinguished gentlemen view? with reference to the acceptance of the Leeoinpton constitution, at Tnriance with those of th? Administration and the Democracy of Congress. The Herald, we assure it. is correct in its idea that there i? no foundation what ever for the story. Senator Hunter ha* made a record upon the question, every line of which goes to disprove it, without the pc si tire contra diction he so freely accords to it. As for Sena tor Hammond, though not previously called on lo express his sentiments on the question, he belong* to the school of statesmanship slowest to give aid and comfort to the direct foes of the interests it represents. The public may put in its pipe and smoke all such stories concerning any Southern member of cither branch of Congress. Kcnt*cEi? Kates or Postage to Austria, Ac., via Frabcb.?We arc requested to give notice that a new Postal Convention was con cluded between the Governments of France and Austria on the 3d of September last, by which ccrt iin changes have resulted in the rates of postage upon correspondence, exchanged by the way of France, between the Inited States and Austria, and the countries to which Austria serves ns an intermediate point. The rates to be levied in the United States on and after the 1st of February, 1858, upon let ters addressed to the following countries and places, by 1'renr/i mail, will be as follows, viz: Ttrenty-one cuts, the single rate of % ounre or under, prepayment optional, being in full to tie* tination?Austria and its States, and city of Bel grade.

Montenegro Servia. (except Helgrade,) and cities in European lurkey, other than those enumerated above, or in the -'Table of Postages to Foreign Countries.'? Postmasters should note these changes of rates upon their tables of postages to foreign countries. The Paofic Railroad ?Perhaps the most important bill so far before the present Con gress, is the Pacific Railroad bill this morning reported by Mr. (twin, from the Senate's select committee of nine on the subject. It is evi dently prepared with great care, so as to make the measure Infinitely stronger than ever be fore in the ilalls of Congress. Its distinguished author, the veteran Califor nia Senator, and indeed the whole committee, deserve the thanks of all the friends of the measure for tho energy, and earnestness, and perspicacity with which they have labored to perfect it in so short a time. It will very soon come to engross the almost undivided attention of both the Senate and House.
