Studied MisbbpRbsektatiok ?By way of breaking the force of public opinion against the act of Senator Douglas in seeking to get his recent report before the country in advance of the official publication of that of t4 Sen ate's Committee on Territories made by*Sena tor Green, many writers for the press from this city, now sympathizing politically with Mr. D., and many Republican-party editors, are just now engaged in misrepresenting the facts involved in the case; which is a very plain one. According to their story, a pledge was made to Senator D. by the Committee, that the reports should not be made unlil last Monday. We are informed, en the best authority, that this is not so. Senator Green was urged by Senator Douglas, as early as last Monday, to have his report ready on the following day. He did finish it by that time, but its rendition to the Senate was delayed that it might be copied. On that day, the minority. Me-srs. Collamer and Wade, had their report ready. Then it was that Mr. Douglas first alleged that his individual report was not completed, and asked " until Thursday, if not until Monday'' last, in order to complete it. He also requested to see or hear read the report of the majority As under no recognised construction of parlia mentary law bad he a right to demand that privilege, of course it was not accorded?all reports being properly the views of those mak ing them upon the questions reported on, and not arguments to be rebutted in minority re ports from the same committee. The fact that Mr. Douglas plead a want of readiness with his report at that time induced Mr. Green to have I the majority report that he bad prepared, co pied off; thus inducing tbe majority of the committee to consent to a deliy until Thurs day last, when all the said reports were pre sented to tbe Senate. On Tuesday Inst, when Mr Douglas asked to have tbe time oxtended until last Monday, no specific action was taken to that end by the Committee. Subsequently the majority insisted that they (the reports) .should be made on Thursday, and Mr. Green immediately notified Mr. D. of that determi nation by note, so that he might not proceed with the preparation of his individual report under the impression that he was expccted not to be ready with it until Monday. It therefore seems that, instead of being in tentionally cheated, as is alleged, as to the time of its rendition, by the majority of the committee, he had ample time in which to fin ish it: and also to have it copied at least for tbe New York Tribune, which journal boasts that it was mailed to its address on the night before the day of its presentation to the Senate. Under these circumstances, the public can judge of the justice of the charges in the Republican party press against the majority of the Senate's ( Territorial Committee, on the ground of want | of courtesy on their part in forcing Senator Douglas td be ready with tlu> expression of his i individual views upon the Lecompton Consti | tution, without allowing him due time (under tbe domestic circumstances by which he was surrounded) for their preparation. According to parliamentary law, the only report from a committee is that of the majority; what are by oourtesy termed minority reports are, in tbe eye of parliamentary law, but the views of in dividual members?of the minority of commit tees. By courtesy alone, can they present them in writing. Under these circumstances, it strikes us that the majority of the committee instead of treat ing Senator Douglas with rudeness or want of due courtesy in insisting on presenting their own report on Thursday last, as alleged by writers for the press notoriously sympathixing with that distinguished gentleman, were them selves the victims of parliamentary tactics of questionable propriety on his part, in his act of dispatching to the New York Tribune a copy of his individual report on the night before its presentation to tbe Senate.

In his communication to the Post Office and Post Roads Committee of the Honse of Repre sentatives, on the subject of an overland mail route to California, in answer to a resolution of inquiry, the Postmaster General, lion A. V Brown, starts out by referring the committee to hit elaborate report made to the President on that subject; which, he says, contains bis best convictions, after the moat patient and laborious research, as to the proper route to be selected in order to carry out the true interest and purpose of Congress. Although constantly met with the suggestion during his investiga tion of that Bubject, that, owing to natural ob stacles lying chiefly west of the Rio Grande, the scheme was impracticable and the service desired by Congress could not be performed, the route was established, the contract duly executed, the foreboding disappointed, and the practicability of a four horse coach service, carrying passengers and traveling with the re quired speed was practically demonstrated. This was along the route established by Con gress. from San Antonio, by El Paso, through the Gadi>den purchase or Arixona, passing Port Yuma to San Diego. Many trips have since been made, and that, too, with the happiest results. This line is the same with that from the Rio Grande near El Paso to Port Yuma, or the Colorado, and is to be discontinued when ever the latter begins. ? This is an established route, anil to abandon it lor another yet untrod. would, the Postmas ter General thinks, be giving up a certainty for an uncertainty. And, he asks, what is pro posed to be substituted for this assurance to the public and the Departmont that the ser vice can and will be well performed ' Nothing, except that the whole field is thrown open to contractors to go here or there ad their own in terests may suggest, or as they may be influ enced by such large sectional or railroad com binations as may appeal to their cupidity. The Postmaster General does not assert that any such combinations will influence the contractors, but considering it bis duty to point out the c?n [ sequences almost certain to attend the confer ring of such unlimited power ou a company who owe no responsibility to the jUiblic, he says: In this very case, if the action of the execu tive government is to be disaffirmed by conferring the power on Messrs Butteilield, Fargo & Co , what will be at once their condition ? The Sooth Pass and Salt Lake route was zealously advo cated, and great railroad interests and the in terest of cities lying above St. Louis were in voked to sustain that route. \\ ell, suppose tbrse cities and railroad companies combined shall apply, not to Congress, not to your committee, not to the executive of the I'nittd States, but to Mr. Butterfleld, Mr. Fargo, and the rest of them, in the txertise of their durrttion, to start on the Mississippi above, or even at St Louis, and thence by the South Pass, Salt Lake, Ac. What antwer would they make ? W hy, that the route was utterly impiacticable f.om snow, ice, and mountains, for at least four or five months of the year. The reply to this may be, and according to all the laws or human nature would be, "we know it, but we have such a large private interest vest ed in our railroads, town lota, &c., all alone much of thia route, thit if you select it, we will promptly pay all the fines and forfeitures which the Post Office Department may impose " This might satisfy ,lthe bond" it Is true, but in the meantime, for the four or t?ve mouths, the public would have no mails, and the means of trans portation of passenger, as well as mails, would be eutirely lost." The impracticability of the Salt Lake route the Postmaster General considers fully demon strated ; as shown in his report, and also by the present situation of the army in Utah. He insists that the route to be chosen should be positively specified by Congress, and that the proposed contractors, Messrs Butterfield. Fargo A Co., should not be set up. not only above the President and the Department, but above Congress itself, by being left to their own discretion, lie urges that all the present mail routes are established by law, and inquires : What would be thought of a proposition to over turn all these routes established by law. and specified in every contract, and turn the whole looae, dependent upon the selfish interest of tho contractors themselves? Such a proposition would startle the whole country ; but on prin ciple it would not differ in oue jot or tittle from' the one now under oonsideiation. Reference is also made to his report to show that the different parties bidding for the con tract on the route named in this communica tion bid for the route specified, and asked no discretionary powers to select a route for them selves. By allowing this discretion in the bill the Postmaster General contends that Congress not only commits a wrong to itself, the Depart ment and tho country, but confers a privilege which the contractors would not have asked. He notices the criticisms which have been ut tered respecting the route selected by the De partment. and answers them by reminding the committee that he was not selecting for a rail road, but for a stage line, to be put in opera, tion within twelve months, and to be run in twenty-flve days. The complaints made relate to it as a selection of a railroad route to the Pacific. The desired service related to popula tion, to present correspondence, to the imme diate transportation of passengers, and not to the facilities of a railroad, which could not be constructed during the entire period that this coach service was contracted for. The true cause of eomplaint he attributes to the supposition that the successful operation of this stage line, and the settlements made along it, may have a great influence on the future location of a railroad, if one shall be con structed prejudicial to the interest of some par ticular railroad corporation, or certain rival jities. These conflicting and rival interests now press forward with their objections to pre sent the initiation of a policy which they fear may prove injurious to them. He urges, however, that in his action he was governed by a desire to discharge the duty de volving upon him in a manner most advan ageous to the country under the circumstances. The concluding pages ot this very able and in. cresting report art devoted to a concise oom >arison of the Mveral routes mentioned.

asking that the title to land* bequeathed by the late John McDonough to that city and Baltimore may be confirmed by the United States; also, presented a petition from the same city, praying Congress to relinquish the interest of the United State* in certain lands bequeathed to the cities of New Orleans and Philadelphia by the late Ste phen Gtffird; both referred The bill to incorporate Gonzaga College in the city of Washington, District of Columbia, was re.td a third lime and paased. The explanations between Messrs Bell and Johnson, of Tennessee, on the subject of resolu iutlons of instructions from the Legislature of that State, occupied the Senate after our report closed. Finally, the Army bill was taken up, and with out action thereon, after an executive session, th* Senate adjourned. In tiik Horse. after our report closed. Mr. Goodwin mad'' a lengthy sj>eech iu the Commit tee of the Whole, in opposition to the Lecotnp ton Constitution. Mr Miltson addressed the Committee on the rej?eal of the Missouri Compromise. He contend ed that Congress had power to regulate the ter ritories. A State could not make a Constitution for a Territory, nor could a Territory make a con stitution for a State. Mr ChaS'ee opposed the l.ecompton Constitu tion on the ground that it had not the sanction of the people of Kansas. Mr. Davis, of Miss., advocated the admission of Kansas tinder tne l.ecompton Constitution. He regarded It as an absurdity to say that it was ne cessary to submit a Constitution to the people in order to make it valid. M r. Kenton opposed the Lecompton measure, and, although in favor of peace, would not have it purchased at the expense of right and freedom. He had no feats of dissolution of the Union. Mr. Sinlth, of Tenn , obtained the tloor, when the Committee rose and the House adjourned. Proceedings ?( To-day. In thk Senate, to-day, Mr Mason introduced a resolution tailing on the Secretary of the Navy for a list of vessels lost and destroyed since 17V?. together with the names of prizes captured. M r. Ci ittendeu presented the credentials of Mr. Shields, as a Senator from Minnesota, together with that gentleman's petition that he should be allowed a seat before the admission of the con templated State Into tU* Union The discussion was in progress when we closed. In the Horsi, the Chair submitted a commu nication from the Secretary of the Treasury re specting the fitting the old Saloon of the Patent Office for the reception of models, and the ap propriation of ?40,14)0 for that purpose. Also, communications from the Secretary of the Inte rior. in answer to resolutions of inquiry. Mr (.{uitman, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported a bill providing for the organi zation of a regiment of mounted volunteers to de fend the frontiers of Texas; also, authorizing the President, in case of emergency, to call out four additional regiments of volunteers. M r. Faulkner, from same committee, submitted a minority report on the same subject; both of which were referred back, ordered to be printed, and made the order of the day for Wednesday neit The resolutions for the expulsion of Mr. O. B. Mattenon?the special order for the day?were then called up by Mr Harris. Mr. Harris proceeded to speak on the subject, when he was Interrupted by? Mr. Seward, who asked the gentleman to give way and allow him to move to refer the matter to a Special Committee, as he did not believe this House had the right to act in the matter, as the resolution contemplated. He was willing that the resolution should pass so far as concerned his regard for the party censured. Mr. ilanis said that he bad discharged his duty by presenting the resolution*. He thought the House had a right to act ti|>on them, but be was not particular as to what disposition shall be ariived at. Mr. Keitt explained why he had been led to move a postponement of the consideration of this subject. It was because he was led to believe that the wife of Mr Matteson was in such ill* health as to require his presence at home. It had been said that the excuse of Mr. M. was a mere feint, but the testimony in possession of Mr. K substantiating the alleged sickness, pre ponderated over the contradictions. Mr. Seward opposed the resolution, on the ground that the Tuirty-fouitb Congress had til d, convicted and punished Mr. Matteson, and this Congress has no power to visit on his head an other penalty for the same crime. VInee the pun ishment was inflicted Mr M has returned home and the people of his district have re-elected him j and thete is nothing in the law to Incapaci tate him from holding his seat here Mr. S'anton took the same view of the matter, and moved to lay the subject on the table. From the New York Times. We would commend the following letter froiu Dr. S S Fitch of this city to the attention of that class of invalids to whom it refers. It cer tainly contains interesting and, we doubt not, important suggestions: Sudden Deaths from Heafrt Disease. To the Editor of th* N Y. Times: Deae Mik: Will you permit me to lay before the readers of The Times a few suggestions in relation to the sudden termination of life from what is usually supposed to be Disease of the Heart. Instances of sudden death, in which the vic tims are stricken down while apparently In full health and strength, and, as it is generally sup posed, without a moment's warning, are fre quent. The cause of these deaths we almost In variably find stated to be Distnso of Iks Heart. But I aui confident that, In a majority of instan- , ces, such is not the fact. True, sudden deaths do occur from organic disease of the heart alone, but they are comparatively rare, and are always F(receded by a certain course of symptoms pecu lar to this disease. In many of the cases refer- I red to, these symptoms are absent, end often post mortem examinations reveal no traces of a disor- , dered heart. What, then, is the true secret of these mysterious deaths? I answer, simple iadi- ( festtoa, accompanied by gr. ater or less degr** of , feebleness is the action of the heart. In very | many of these cases death results from a stop- t page or detention of the undigested or partial y c digested food In the stomach, or IntherfMadc- " num, and a consequent evolution of gas or flatus 1 In those organs. Tnev become distended, the 1 circulation of the blood is Impeded, the heart is pressed upon, and being chronically weak, is smothered, as tt were.

It* symp torn* usually art: a feeling of preat fullne** at the stomach, with a languor and dullness. par ticularly after eating even a moderate meal; slug gish circulation of the blood ; often sn unpleasant, dull, dead feeling in the left breast and side; aometime* severe pain, perhaps severe palpita tion or fluttering, or a thr?l>bing at the pit of the stomach ; a tendency of blood to the bend, slug gish condition of the bowels, ete. Sometimes the appetite is poor, sometimes even too good Persons affected in this way are. oftener than they suppose, on the very verge of eitreme dan ger.
