EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: THURSDAY Jaaaary 29, 1949. inr Adrfr?lif?fiu shsald bf u?t la li ?'cl?ck m.i ?Urrwiwihry may Ml a f aatil Hie ant day. SPIKIT OF'THti MORNING PKhSS. The Intelligencer is to-day devoted to newt. The Union's leader, to-day, i? one of the ablest articles upon the Kansa* question =k> far appearing in the press of the country. It is an argument to show the responsibility resting on the Democracy in ami out of Congress for the epeedy settlement of the imbroglio, and a con clusive one, indeed The editor explains that the policy of the opposition being to keep alive the slavery issue until 1860, its every member ^Republican party) in both houses will, of course, vote against the reception of the Le compton Constitution, and then shows that for any Democrat to do likewise, will be for him to aid and abet the rebellious schemes of Lane, Robinson A Co., and to oppose the policy with reference to Kansas, to carry out which the present Administration was placed in power, and the present Democratic majority of the House were elected. The same journal also exposes the charlatan ism of the late speech of Senator Hale with reference to the deficiency in the appropria tions for the military service of the Govern ment for the current fiscal year caused by the state of things in 1 tah. Thus, it convicts Mr. Hale of stating that deficiency, and the aggre gate of the expenses in question, at five mil lions of dollars above and beyond the correet figures , and mnkes it quite plain that every dollar of the deficiency that docs exist, is the reeult only of a combination of circumstances for the existence of which no responsibility whatever rest* upon the President or his ad ministration, or the War Department, though upon them, up to the meeting of Congress, the responsibility for providing the proper reme dies for the emergency rested, as it now rests, on Congress ET The price of gas has been rcduced in Bal timore ten cents on the dollar.

De feated at every turn up to this point, their present game is to intimidate Northern Demo crats from fearlessly discharging their whole duty to their political principles, by maligning and otherwise misrepresenting the Lecompton Convention and those on whom has been de volved the duty of carrying out its resolves. Heretofore, they have made much by pertina ciously repeating false allegations of fraud and violence against the Democrats of the Territory, and in the hope of further profiting by pursuing the same line of policy, they are laboring with might and main to discredit the conduct of General Calhoun with the northern Democrats of the House. Fortunately, that gentleman is shortly to arrive here. His presence will at once defeat the schemes ot his accusers and in aligners. We know well that he will promptly satisfy all who are seeking honestly only to be satis fied of the integrity of his discharge of the du ties devolved on him by the schedule of the Lecompton Constitution, that injustice as well as under the strict letter of the law the Le compton Constitution may be accepted by Con gress with as much propriety as ever a consti tution of an applying (for admission) United States Territory was accepted by the Congress of the United States. "Divide and conquer," is in this case the policy of the opposition and their allies ; the latter having also stak'd their hope of future success in public life on weilding to their own advantage the anti-slavery senti ment of tho North. We cannot believe that with the experience which every Democratic representative has bad in the matter of the plots and counter-plots of the abolition opposition, and in the almost invariable result to Demo cratic public men of playing into their hands, that in this case they will be able to influence? to use?any really sincere member of the Demo cratic party organixation to their en ds. The Pacific Railroad.?This afternoon we manage to make room tor the publication of a synopsis of the Pacific Railroad bill, recently reported by Senator (J win, the chairman of the Senate's committee on that subject. Wo have caused this synopsis to be drawn out in the belief that the American public at large has n great interest in the subject: The first section authorize* the President fo make contract* for the transportation, by rail road, of mails, troop*, munitions of war. sup 6lies, Ac., from a point on the Missouri river, rtween the mouths of the Big Sioux and Kansas rivers to Sail Francisco, on the most eligible route?reference being had to feasibility, short ness and economy. Tbe second directs the advertisement for pro posals for constructing the road and performing the service required. These proposals are to specify, first, the time required for building and putting in operation the road, which must not exceea ten years. Also, what portions will 1>3 completed and operated progressively during each year. Secondly, the time when the road with all its rolling stock and appurtenances will be surrendered to the United States. Thirdly, at what rate (not exceeding $500 per mile per an num) the mulls will be carricd on said road for twenty years after its completion, and on the different portions thereof as its construction pro. ?jresaea. Also, at what rate, during a like peri. id, troops, seamen, passengers, military ana naval supplies, Ac., for Government purposes, will be transported ; which rales must not exceed what hrt< heretofoie been paid on other roads. It al?o provides that after the contract expiies the Gov ernment shall not be charged more for such ser vice than is paid on other first class roads Section three authorizes the President to open said proposals iu the presence of his Cabinet, and to enter into contract for the transportation and service specified above. It requires that the party with whom a contract is made shall de posit with the Secretary of the Treasury $.501 ,0U(t, or the value thereof In United State* bonds or certificate* of *tock, a* a guarantee for the fulfll ment of the contract. Thl* sum is to l>e subse quently withdiawu in sums of *10,UN), whenever the Secretary is shown that a J'ke amount has been expended in the construction of the road. The fourth section provides for the appropri ation ot a quantity of public lands equal to the alternate sections, for twenty mile* < n either side of said road throughout Its entire length. In case any of these lands may have l?een disposed of the deficiency is to be made up from any un appropriated lands within foity miles oil either side of said road The mineral land* of Califor nia are excluded from this provi*ion. and in lieu thereof an equal quantity of agricultural lands nearest the line of the road in those distiict* shall b? selected in alternate sections. Section five require* the contracting partv to proceed without delay in locating the route, nir n sh a plat and map to the President, who shall cause tue public land* within forty mlies on each ?ide to be surveyed, and the Indian titles thereto extinguished; and shall also extend the pre emption laws over all such laud* as shall not be appropriated to the use of the road The sixth section enacts that the road be di vided into section* of twenty-five mile* each, and that when one section is completed, thiee fourths of the appropriated lands appeitaimng thereto shall be conveved to the contracting par ty, and the other fourth held as security for the completion of the succeeding ;?ectlo:iT When this is finished, three fourths of the land apper taining to it, and the on "-four! h appertaining to the fii st see 11 on. which was withheld, shall ?>e convened, and soon progressively until the road is finished. This section also piovide* for the payment of ihe compensation which may be agreed upon for the transportation of the mails. The next section authoiize* tLe issuing to the contracting pa'ty, on the completion of the fi st twenty-five mile* of the road, United State* b >u<:a to the amount of fel ?,.yi0 p?, mile, which are to bear interest, payable semi-annually, not excetd ing five per c nt, and are t j be payable nineteen y ar* alter the date of s; Id contract Onlhe<om , letion of ttie second section of the road, a similar amount of bonds is to be issued, and so with ea< h aacceeding section until the r- ad is fit ished, pro viding the aggregate amount shall not exceed S25 ,(J0O,fJtJO. These payments are declared to be advances made to the contracting party, and to gether with interest, they are to be repaid in tran.spoitation and service, as provided for in the act, before any other compensation besides the lands appropriated, is to be given for such tians portation and service This section also pro vides that the contra* ting party shall pay duty on all Iron imported for the road, and shall give the preference to American railroad iron ii the latter of equal quality can be obtained at a cost not exceeding that from foreign countries. The eighth section enacts that in case the con tracting party fail* to prosecute the woik ?o as to secure its completion in compliance with the terms of the agreement, all their rights to the said road, right of way, lands or other property pertaining thereto, together with the unexpended amount or stocks deposited, shall be forfeited. In the event of such forfeiture, the President is authorized to relet the uncompleted portions of the work, on term* not exceeding those provided for In this act, and so as to secure its earliest completion. Section nine makes it incumbent on the con tracting party to sell, and unconditionally con vey one-half the lands received under this act, within five years from the lime of receiving the patents for the same, and that all tho-* lauds re maining the property or held for the benetu of the contracting party ten years after the date of the patent* ?hall recur to the United Slates The tenth section sets apait the Government lands, for two hundred feet in width along the entire line of road, for highway, telegraph and railroad purposes, under the diie<-tion of Con gress; and grants to the contracting party the right to take from thi* strip any material for con structing and keeping in lepair the road It also make* it incumbent on the contracting parties t<. construct the read in a substantial manner, with all the necessary drains, culverts, bridge*, via ducts, crossings, turn-outs, stations and watering places, and with all other appurtenance* inclu ding furniture and tailing stock, equaling first class railroad* when prepared for business; ihe rails to weigh at (east seventy-five pounds per yard, and the uuage to i?e urrifoinily six feet. Also, to construct a telegraph line of the most approved description along theentire line for Ihe ransmissiou of mesKage*, for the use ol which he tovernment shall not be charged higher rate* than are paid by Individual* Section eleven allows the contracting party to the two hurtd.ed feet set apart for rijihi of wav and iiiak* ? it their duty to allow other railroads to form connection with their track on fair ternw Section twelve provides that whenanyportlon of the road shall be surrendered to the United State*, so much of it as may be *itnated in anv State at all become the ptoperty of *och State subject to I lie use of the ('lilted State* for postal' military, and Government service, and *ul j?ct to such other regulation* as Congress may import, restricting the charge* on transpoitation . The thirteenth and last section enacts that while the contracting party are in any manner Indebted to the Halted States, they shall keep statement* of all disbursements, ex (tend)lures, and receipta. setting foith specifically the object* and source* of the same ; also, a record of all a<> oldents affecting persons or property, or causing delay on the roed ; end, that tbeae <wok? .hall be open to the inspection of the President ana any pernon appointed by him, and to the member* of Congress. And, likewise, that the contracting Dartv shall report on the first of October annually adetailed exhibit of the expenditures and proflts of the road and telegraph, which shall be atte*ted by oath and submitted to Congress at the coin mencement of each session. Tint Party Last Night.?The spacious rooms of Mr. Secretary Thompson's residence in the First Ward were crowded to excess last night, and in all respects the party was one of the most successful and enjoyable of the very many brilliant affairs of the sort which have enlivened the National Metropolis during the present gay season. The diplomatic corps was largely represented, and amongst others of that body present were M. iSartiges. Gen. Ro bles, Mr. Molina, Ac.k<Lc. Most of the Cabi net associates of Mr. Thompson were present; also, army and navy officers, heads of bureaus, and all the fashionables and bellea of note res ident or visiting the seat of Government. The hospitalities of the house were gracefully dis pensed by Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, and their neice, Miss Wiley. Good music was furnished, and by twelve o'clock, when the throng had somewhat diminished, the rooms were suffi ciently thinned, and the dancing was at its height; the " Lnnccr's Quadrilles'' being the favorite movement of the night. This party will be remembered with plcAsure by the guests. TnE Invitation to Mr. II. Winter Davis. It seems that the fHd that this gentleman has been invited to deliver the next annual address before the literary societies of the Virginia University has generated a terrible hubbub in that institution. The following letter from a student subscriber tells the story : University or Virgins, Jan. SI, 1MH. There is much excitement in college, arising from the fact that "the societies have invited Henry Winter Davis to deliver before them au address at the end of the session. It is customary for the three societies each to appoint a commit tee, and these three committees conjointly elect an orator for the final celebration. It is us'nal to select a man of distinction: and this time they selected and invited Mr. Davis, not being ac quainted with those special acts of his which have made him obnoxious to the South. It is usual, too, for the proceedings of the committee to be kept perfectly secret until some one has ac cepted their iavitaiiou. They then report to their respective societies that they have extended the invitation to such a man, and that he has accept ed it. Well, when it trot out that Davis had i?een invited, h large number of the students and all the faculty were furious; and last night the soci eties met to consider what was to be done in the embarrassing circumstances The result was that ont of the societies voted that Davis should lie made acquainted with the circumstances, and requested not to come ; but th? other two declared that in spite of the Pro fessors, the legislature and tne State, Davis should address them. And here the matter stands. The thing has b?en heard of in Richmond, and a day or two ago an article appeared in the "South'1 denouncing, in the strongest terms, the impropriety of the selection. The Legislature, too, has l?een applied to for an appropriation of a large amount of money to supply the wants of the 1'niversity, and the faculty have received letters from some of the members, declaring that unless the action of the committee be rescinded, they will use all their exertions to defeat the ap propriation bill, Ac , Ac I can't tell what will come of the matter, but I suppose everything will l*? published In the papers, and you wilt then get a full account. William Walker on the Government.? The readers of the despatches from the South giving account* of Walker the filibuster s ora tions. wherein he chargcs that the government wished him to filibuster against Mexico, should recollect that he also alleged that the President sanctioned his piratical course against N icara gua, going to the point of professing to have letters to that end, from individual members of the Cabinet. Vet, howev er much be might have strengthened himself here hy the production of those letters, the public have not yet managed to get sight of either of them. When in Nicar agua, it is notorious, be personally superin tended the bogus accounts of his proceedings sent from bis army to the press of this country all of which turue 1 out to be destitute of foun dation on truth, in their every really impor tant particular. Under such circumstances, his last allegation; ngainst the Chief Magistrate of the ( nited States and that functionary's constitutional adviser.-, charging them with bad townrds Mexico, can deceivc no one with common sense. . Tiik Coli mbia Institution.?It will be ob served in the Congressional proceedings of yef terday, that Mr. Hamlin, from the Committee on the District of Columbia, reported to the Senate a bill for the amendment of an act in corporating the Columbia Institution for the instruction of the deaf, dumb and blind. We understand that this amendment contemplates for the benefit of the Institution an annual ap propriation of $3,000. The at Judge Douglas s last night was yet another of the many lately at tended and gay affairs of the season. Dancing to ebcr s band was one of the features of the evening and here as elsewhere, the new dance, Tho Lancers, was in the ascendant. Sir \N in Gore Ousely wasamong the visitors here Removal.
