There will lw a strong outside pressure on the Southern Know Nothing members to make them vote tho demo cratic ticket. On the clear slavery issue we presume the House is very nearly balanced. The democratic organs all over the country a:o unanimous in advising the ad mit is'rntion members to he firm In their position. We do not consider that there U any prospect of a set. ticket tor the opposition. Mr. Cullom has said in so maty words, that hR. would not run as the candidate o, env party, while there does uot appear to be a man mcn tloneo f,r Quaker who could get v>te? enough on the first ballot.

It 1* underetood that Mr. Trumbrill has no eomrulsaioii fr< m the Governor of Illinois, and, therefore, that lio claims a teat as Senator by virtue of an eleuti n by the Legleltture. but which theGuvsrn >r dtellnes to reoogolre as legal under the constitution of the Sw.e.

Congress did pass an act iu 1842, requiring district elec tions, but California was admitted in 1850. and tho now apportionment act, passed that year, 6'ies not require that the States shall bo districted. Congress hisalwiyx recognised the Calilornia members, elected on general ticket, and the attempt to ran out Denver aad Herbert is absaid. In the first Louisiana district, Mr. Albert Fnbre, demo crat, will contest the seat claimed by Goorge Hustle, Jr. Thtfio con'est* will not pribably amount to much?th*? are genei ally- settled by giving the seat to the member having the largest number of political friend* la the House; but the contest between Reader and Whitfield, both of whom claim to represent Kansas, will make ttoulde; an) in order that it uiay be understood, we give a brief retvme of the points.

Thla liae continued n lull tflect until 1863, when Mr. Dougloa iatro dured a bill In the Senate, providing for torri to ial government for Ktii.n and Nebraska. The act was similar to those always estab'ished for In ril trial g> veiiments, with the exception that the line shove sp->k?t of was repealed, leaving Kansas, through which it | asses. open to slavery or not, as the j.ir| It: might tlect. lheprt clp'e lnvol-ed was that of "iqiatter sovereignty," so called, and Congress declined lo li g islate < n the subject.

There wore some ii regularities in the electl >u ot delegates to the iAgisla tnie. and a'ter it had met it removed to another place, agviust the Governor's wishes.
