Tliey u uoLcrtd into the great council cbaaibcr, where they found the Covcrnor, a necond high offi cial, with the rank of Governor and exercising the office of Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and the Imperial Inspector, hitting on a platform covered with red cloth, before a table with a similar cover. Opposite to thin were a long table and a kind ot couch or bench, also covered with red cloth, intended for Captain Fabius and hit) offlcera, materials for smoking and a number of boxcA of sweetmeats being placed liefore them. Here Captain Fabius and hm companions took their Beats according to their rank. Between the table of the Governor and that of the Dutch officers another was placed, at which a Ja panese official took his seat. Enquiries for the health of the King of Holland and the Emi?eror of Japan and other complimentary expressions, having been interchanged, the Dutch officers were invited to partake of the sweetmeats and to smoke, and the conversation theu turned on politics, trade, Ac., the official sitting between the two tables act ing as interpreter and displaying a much better knowledge of Dutch than Capt. Fabius had found in any of the regular interpreters. The ComniHHtjiouer for Foreign Affairs put many questions regarding finance, taxation, import and export duties, entrejKits, Ac., which Capt. tabius an swered to the best of his ability, stating at the same time that the Dutch Commissioner has very recently si-nt a long letter to Jeddo on these points. His Ex cellency declared that the permitting trade and the formation of commercial treaties were matters of great difficulty for Japan, seeing that Japan pos sessed so little fitted for the European or Amencan market; that in Japan those articles which, leaving out of view the lacquer ware, were most suitable for the ? foreign trade were too dear, on account of the high price of labor, and that should the Ja panese government allow a great quantity of copper or the precious metals to be exported, the mines would soon be exhausted and the country reduced to poverty, as was the case formerly with South America. Captain Fabius observed that there waa not much chance the mines would Boon become ex hausted , but in his opinion there was a want in Japan of skilled persons to work them with advan tage.f#)n this account the Dutch government had sent a mining engineer to Nagasaki, who would be ready, whenever the Emperor desired, to take the mines in hand and instruct the people how to work thrin to the greatest advantage. The Commissioner highly approved of this, and thought the services of the engineer would be soon availed of. The Commissioner then asked Captain Fa bius why Europeans and Americans were always so anxious to procure Japan copj?er. and it it was better than that of other countries. In reply. Captain Fabius said that Japan copper was similar to that of other places? of England, for instance but that as. with the exception of lacquer ware and porcelain, Japan at present possessed so few other articles suitable for a wholesale export trade, copper was sought as the best return; that each country possessing its own natural productions and requiring those of others, the exchange or bartering of them constitutes trade; that as soon as the Japanese popu lation, encouraged thereto by the government, shall apply themselves to produce otner articles of export, such as wax, camphor, hemp, Ac., on a large scale, and prepare their tobacco in a manner more suited to other nations, these articles will certainly become returns; but that at present they are in general less fitted for that purpose, on ac count of the high prices required for them, and that if Japan wishes to purchase the productions of other countries at a cheap rate it must endeavor to pro vide articles of trade whicn will not leave a loss to the European or American merchants; that the lac quer rare and 'porcelain are more articles of cu riosity than fitted for a wholesale commerce. All appeared to understand these remarks and give their assent to them. The Commissioner for Foreign Affairs then asked if there were other countries besides Holland, Eng land, Russia, America and perhaps also France, which desired to trade with Japan, which Captain Fabius answered in the affirma tive, remarking that commerce did not retro grade, that industry and the spirit of enter prise was increasing over all the world, and had at tained a great height, and knew no bounds or limit; that his late Majesty William II., foreseeing this, and having in view the war of England against China, had then advi?ed Japan like a true friend; and that his present Majesty William III., adopting the policy of hiB late father, and believing that the rejection of this advice would some time or other in volve Japan in great difficulties, and desiring for Holland no exclusive advantages over other nation*, but the contrary, and Isnng sincerely anxious to pro mote the welfare of Japan, still advised that the sys tem which had prevailed for more than two centu ries should be abandoned for a more liberal one; that if Japan voluntarily adopted this course it would be in a position to direct the course of affairs, and would thereby be saved from great sacrifices; but if the Ja panese government remained obstinate.lt wonld soon lie forced to make much greater concessions than were at present required of it. The justness of these re marks appeared to be f?Jt by all the Japanese pre sent. Captain Fabius was then asked what he thought of Rimoda and replied that he considered it quite un fitted for trade, as the bay was so very uusafe and not at all suitable for merchant ships, and he advised | the Japanese government, now that the anchorage I at Simoda had lieen completely destroyed by earth ; and seaquakes, to listen to the request of those who j wished for another jMirt. He then pointed out the j I, ay of Hakodate, and *ai<L that in his opinion this j fine and safe harbor would become of great import- j ance through its vicinity to the rapidly advancing I eastern Russia, now in possession of the Amoor | river which ran through such a large part | of that country, and in connection with j which Hakodate would become the emporium for Asiatic Ruwda for all the productions of India and America, such as coffee, sugar, Ac. The conversation finally turned upon the subject of Consuls, and ls?th Governors inquired what the poeitton of the American Consul was aud how he i should be treated, seeing that the treaty with Ame rica contained nothing about Consuls. Captain Fa lil us answered that a Consul General, such as the American one stationed at Hlmoda, was always a high functionary and a man of rank, who represent ed his government, and mint protect the Interest* of those Americans who came to Japan, and see to tlie proper observance of the treaty; he must, therefore. 1* treated with distinction suita ble to his rank, and ?>eing placed by his government in communication with that of Japan at Simoda. he must conform to the manners and usages which were not contrary to his honor and, religion, and that, on the other hand, he had a right to enloy such privileges as were not inconsis tent with the interests of Japan or the Japanese population. Yes, said the Governor, but he wishes to pay for what he requires in our money, and not through the. medium of Japanese officer* in dollars, and we say that, according U> the treaty, he must pity in dollars; and as no Japanese, who Is not spe daily authorized, can receive dollars, he must pur chase everything he requires through the officers ap pointed for the purpose. Captain Fabius pointed out the hardship of requiring the Consul when ever he wished to procure a fowl or an e?g, to buy it through the intervention of a Japanese of ficer. and remarked that as far as he knew the American treaty the provision about the payment in dollars only applied to jiersona visiting Japan tern porarily. such as seamen, and not to those like the American Consul General who was established at Siinoda, who ought to have the right of purchasing what he required without the interference of a Ja tsMiene official. A long discussion ensued on this point, and the reasonableness of Capt. Fabius' ob servations was at last agreed to. ... The Japanese officials then adverted to what had been said hy Capt. Fabius regarding usages Incon sistent witn the honor or religion of others, and asked what he meant by this. He took the oppor tunity, in answering, to advert to the trampling on the cross as being a Japanese usage offensive to every Christian nation - as showing a hostile di"i?osition on a snhject on which they cher ished the most sacred feelings, and in which they not only mutually accorded freedom of worship, hot in which there was an established usage that there should be nothing in the practice ottheir religion which conld give oltence to others. Dnring these prolonged discussions a capital din ner in the native style was served up, which the two Governors joined in partaking. Afterwards It was arranged that the Governors should pay a visit U. the Medusa, and they requested that there should be practice with the great bum y well as with musketry, to which Capt. Fabius gave a readv as sent. Capt. Fabius having asked for a snpplv of rice, the Governor toMMphi him to make hi* indent as small as jxwsible. as nearly all the supply had been destroyed by the hurricane, and the quantity required having lieen reduced two thirds the Gover nor expressed hh obligation for the consideration (^"the following morning the Japanese officials visited the ve<*el and partook of a collation, in the course of which they particularly relished the coffee and champagne. A l<rtig conversation, lasting some hour*, took place, and many topics were discussed. Presents were Interchanged and the Medusa In spected, the crew exercised with small arms and a sakite of seventeen guns fired. After tlie departure of the guests the accounts were settled and paid in Mexican dollars. The anchor was then weighed and the Medusa proceeded ontsMe.

T., Dec. 15, 1?57. The Legislature haw now lieen a week in Region at Lecompton. The first few days were sjieut In ar ranging the business, appointing standing commit teen and waiting for tbe report of the special com mittee appointed to investigate the 1,/eaveuworth election raw;. The fr< e State men sent in their me morial to the Assembly. Three of the pro-slavery representatives, Messrs. Bartlett, Denmait and Arm strong, were present in the House, and Davis, of Wy andotte, and Judge Halderman, of leaven worth, were in the Council. They stated that they had not legally been notified of a contest, and refused to en ter into an investigation. The House committee re ported, on Thursday last, favorably to the five State men and the pro-slavery Kickapoos were turned out. This proceeding was not arrived at in the Council until Friday night, Dec. 11, "when Halderman and Davis were informed they might leave. The free State men in both bodies were sworn in, and the As sembly finally got to work. An important bill was introduced into the Honse on Saturday, December 12, and passed both branches to its final passage on Monday nipht. It will proba bly be vetoed by Stanton, but it will be passed over his head. It is a very carefully devised scheme, and if put into effectual operation will place the military arm ol the Territorial JHW? Mlt in the hands of the free State men. The Major (ieneral will be Jas. 11. Lane, and the remainder of the Board provided for be composed of such men a* he may approve. Ity this bill the Board can call out the military when they think it necessary. The task of the Inspector General in reference to the arms now belonging to the Territory will not be a very pleasant, or, I fear, a successful one. There were 3,(100 stand of arms appropriated to Kansas, all of which have passed into tbe hands of the Mi ssouri border ruffian militia, that in the past usurped the functions of our citizens, und to recover these arms will be a task worthy of a Hercules. Yesterday both branches passed unanimously the following preamble and resolutions relative to the felon's constitution : ? 1'KKAMBLK AND RE80LITT0NS IK RELATION TO THE BMiriniHW kkamkp at UCOMWOW, kansah TKKKITOKV, ON THB RKVBNTH DAY OK NOVKMBKH, 1857. Whereas, a small minority of the people living in nine taea Of the thirty -eight counties of tho Territory, availing themselves of a law which enabled them to obstruct ami defeat a Mr expression of the popular will. dirt, by the j ixl toils and oppressive application of tho provision* ami partizan machinery of said law, procure tho return of the whole number of the delegates to the Oonstitu ional Con retition recently assemblod at I?compton; whereas, by reason of the defective provisions of said law, in connec Hon with the neglect and misconduct of tho. authorities charged with the execution of the same, the people living within the remaining nineteen counties of the Territory were not permitted to return delegates to said Convention ; were not recognized in its organization, or in any case beard or felt in its deliberations: and whereat!, it is an axiom in political ethics that the people cm no-, he de prived or their rights by the negligence or misconduct of public officers; and whereas, a minority, to wit, twenty eight (i!9) only of the sixty members of said Convention have attempted, by an unworthy contrivance, to impoMfl upon the whole peoplo of this Territory a constitution, without consulting their wishes and against their wi?b"s; and whereas, the members of said Convention ban re fused to submit their action for the approval or disapproval of the votes of the Territory, and in thus acting iuive do fled the will of nine tenths of the voters thereo'; and whereas, the action of a fragment of said Convention re presentilg, an they did, a small minority of the voltes of the Territory, repudiates and crushes out the dUt'njtlve feature of the "Nebraska Kansas act," and violate ami tramples under fool the rights and sovereignty of thn people: and whereas, from the foregoing -staternsnt of lads tt clearly appears that " tbe people have hot been left Iree to form and regulate their domestic institution in their own way," but on tbe contrary , at every stage in their anomalous proceedings recited, they have been pre \ ented from ?o doing. Be it therefore Resolved, by toe tiovernor and i<ejislaiivc Assembly of Kansas Territory, That the jwople of Kansas being opposed to said constitution, Congress his no rightful power under it to admit said Territory into tbe Union as a State, and that the representatives of said Territory do hereby, in their name and on their behalf, solemnly protest against such admission. Resolved. That such action on the part of Congress would, in the judgment of the members of this Legislative Assembly, be an entire abandonment of tbe doctrine of nou intervention in the atlairs of the Territory ?and a sub stitution In its stead of Congrersioual intervention in be half of a minority engaged in a disreputable attempt to de feat the will and violate the rights of the majority. Resolved, That the people of Kansas Torrttory cla m the right, through a legal and fair expre-sion of the will of a majority of her citizens, to form and adopt a consti tution (or themselves. Resolved. That tbo Governor of this Territory be re quested to forward a copy of the foregoing preamble anil resolutions to the President of the I'mted Sutes, the President oi the Senate, the speaker of the limine of Representatives, alld to the delegate in t'ongreg* lor tbm Territory. The following resolution endorsing the Topeka constitution as the people's constitution also parsed the House and OMMli yesterday: Resolved, as the unanimous opinion of this House, That the constitution kuowti a- the Topeka constitution emanated directly from the people, under a necessity which demanded its adoption for the overthrow of a gov ernment thrust upon them against iheir will, that said constitution has twice been adopted by the people, and that as a measure of justice to a sovereign people strug gling against gross usurpation, it is the duty ol Congress to admit the Territory or Kama* ucder said constitution as one or the states or tbe American Union at the earliest practicable moment Today. December 14, 1 le^rn the Assembly passed a bill declaring the act of the late legislature, un der which the Asxiueun Convention derived its au thority, to )??< null and void and making it felonyto hold an election under it. A bill wbm brought into the House providing fur the election of delegate* to a new Constitutional Convention, to be held on the 4th of January next. It was defeated in the committee of the whole, chiefly on aeconnt of an ohiectlonable apportion ment which did not give a fair representation to Southern Kansas. It is supposed norm* similar pro ject will be flnnlly Adopted. A bill was also Inttv duced and read the flrnt time, providing for the elec tion of Htate officers under the Lecompton constitu tion, on the 4th of January next. The object of this is simply to gain possession, not to put into opera tion, of the power of the Leeoupton swindle. should we be admitted into the Union under it. It is pro posed to nominate the officers of tbe Topeka organi zation, and use the (tower they may gain for the benefit of the people.

TUB MILITIA BILL PASSED OVER STANTON 'fl VETO. ICorreepomlence of the St. Louis Domocrftt. j I.ecomiton, Dec. 10, 1K57. Upon the 14th inst. a law passed both branches of the Legislature providing for the organization of the Territorial militia. This law repealed all the militia laws enacted by the last Legislature. The new organization takes place under the supervision of a board of officers, consisting of one major general, eight brigadier ge nerals, one adjutant geueral, one inspector geueral, one quartermaster general, one commissary general, and one surgeon general. These officers are elected by the legislature. The Governor of the Territory is a member of the lioard, and is commander-in-chief of the militia. This military board has power to organise, equip, drill and pat into a serviceable shape the militia of the Territory. A majority of the board are empow

ered to call out the militia in any emergency, and to act independent of the commander- in-cliief. This militia bill, after passing both braucbes of the Legislature, was sent to Secretary Stanton for his approval. Alter considering the matter tip days, Mr. Stanton returned the following answer:? To niK Hoick or Rkpm?s?xtativibi or tub Tkhkitory or Kansas : ? Gkvtucmbm ? Herewith I return the bill entitled "An uot to organize and regulate the militia of the Territory of Kanpas,' ' which was presented yesterday for my appro val, but lrom which 1 urn compelled to withhold my sanc tion. No necessity seems to me to demand a re-organization of the militia at tbe present time; and such a meaeuro is not, in my judgment, legitimately connected with the ge ncral purpose, lor winch the legislative Assembly ig now convened. Moreover, I am deeply impressed with the importance of avoiding everything which, at this critical juncture of affiurs might serve to irritate the minds of the people, and arouse apprehensions such as might rutu ral'y be engendered by any military movement whatever. locking to the provisions of the bill itself, I dissent from that |*rt ot it which provide- for the olection of ge neral officers by the two houses or the legislative Assem bly. II any change should be mule from the present mode of appointment I am ol opinion that the officers in qiUMtmn should be elected by the people, or by those who are l.able to be called into service under 'be law. Out (he m<"-i lalal onjectmu to the proposed law, and that wliieh is entirely c jnc.lu<ive .to uiyimud, is to be l'oun.1 iu the aeventh seciian. which authoiires "a majori ty of the military board to call out the militia in any emergency." lt> tli"' organic act, the Governor of tin Territory is made commander-id chief of the militia, and w charged with the >'nty ol seeing ?h<> laws faithfully executed. The proposed law would virtually depone bun from his posi tion, and would place Hull m the power of a board, com posed of the general officers of the millti ?, including him self it is true, but in which he in gtu at any time be over ruled hy the majority In my judgment such a law would be in diieet conflict with theorgauic act. and would therefore be null and void. If. howeve r, it might be considered legally valid, it would bo hoetilefto tbe acknowledged principles of civil liberty, which require the subordination of the military to the civil power. To confer upon a majority of the general officers of the niilitm 'tie power to judge of the occasion when tbo military ion ot the Territory should be called into action, would be to establish a military despotism of the most dangeroiio and pernicious character.

TIh RnrhnUr HarOer-A trw Phase of Um Qane* (Vrotn the Albany J "irnal, flee M l In casting sh>ut for the motives whien induced the killing of Littles, tht- ? blowing theory is aug geated:- Stout , while living near Owegn. was sent to the Pennsylvania penitentiary. It is surmised that, previous to this, be nad married the woman known as Mrs. Littles, and uow represented as his sister; that, while hi r husband was In prison, this woman lived In the Stont family as a daughter, and ns such only was site known to Littles and became his wife. After Rtout was released Irom prison, he, of course, returned to his family , found hi* wife aeain married, c?msentod to keep uptho delusion with Lit ties, but finally (L tx rhaps having got an inkling of how things were) plotted his murder. This theory is plausible, and furnishes a motive for the murder, and it reason for the offensive and in delicate intimacy of the "brother and sister." If there is nay ground for this theory. It ran doubtless l>e proven. If Mrs. L. i* not a Stout, who is she? Those who were living in tlie neighborhood of the family at the time of Stont's sentence, must know ? -tough of the history of the family to he able to aid in * 'K ing this question. Wbetber well founded or not. there is onoitjrh of romance and mystery in the theory to render it interesting. There ? .is a rumor in Rim heati* on Thursday that Ira Stout hnd made a confession , implicating two other parties beside* himself and Mrs. Utiles. The only foundation for this story, however, pram to he thai some permits advised hitu to save himself and family by disrhisinir what other parti<? were con cerned in the murder. Stout, who is ouite as shrewd as his inquisitors, replied that there were two other jwrsans rnjraifed In It. They a?tod hint to disclose their MM, and he said he would " let them know about it to morrow.'' He told them nothing, howover, and marie no confession. It ia so evidently for his and Mrs. Littles' interest to have it lielieved others were encratred in the crime, that any -<n< h pretended reve lationsJiy them will l>e and ftbonld l-e received with grcut di-tru#t, Xltat Stout aud Mis. Littles are the Brw)ns who th?ew the body down the cliff', there < ;>n little doubt; for in the durkne>w, and by a falae *t*p, they both went down with their victim. Tltat full account)* for their brtilMW and hroki'ii liinbx, and they cannot 1m* natiafartorily accounted tor in any other way. Stoot'H ?pectaefea and Mr*. l.ittleH' ro H?'tt??H must have Uen loot in thi* fall, and in the darknew could not be found. Had there been more jR-rnon* engaged in the crime, it in not at all probable they would luive had any difficulty in throwing the body over or have fallen down with it. Nor would a wonian'i help have been needed if there had been three men. The circuniKtanccH which neem to ftwten the Kuilt upon these two indicate with aim out equal certainty that they were the only two who dragged the mur dered man to the precipice. PEIUOAAu.
