tinder very different circumstances.

that place, and not its merits.
We are told by the Arrow that w
iii.l nt ay wlt "peculiar rights and priv-ih-cs"
their "highly favored place" was
cut o(T from, or when it was rejected.
Tor their beiiellt, wc will endeavor to
make up that deficiency now. In the first
place, it is mt olT from the privilege of
having been ihe first to be chosen. Il is j
rut oil from having a right to claim natural
upcriority of location, and resources.
Ai to the qiKStinnof time when this
rejection took place, we have shown that
it lock place mure than thirty years agm
when, as the Arrow sat,, the '-before
Jneirtioned honrables-' made choice of Jielle-
iew instead of Omaha. The. Document
ure found in the age of the settlement, and
in the settlers that have lived there from
that day lo tl.ks.
It ppear from the following extract,
that our friends think themselves rising in
public estimation, from the fact, that some
who "formerly favored oilier and les fa
vored points bove and beLw," now de
clare Omaha to be the spot. W e are as

have probably seen a detailed account of
the catastrophe before this time. I wai
on the Norwalk, returning from Covey
Island, that curious pile of scotiritig-sand,
when a red ILme shot up, far out on the
water, which immediately attracted uni
versal attention, and the Captain of the

immediately put out for the binning

Sarpy a portion of the debts due him.
They acknowledged themselves indebted

K is a notorious rnd cci:ediiigty lameiita-
'. that ihe iirmies and navies of cverv

cim.i..I country on earth, are the nur-
snies of drunkenness. Mr. Smith's
amendment was aimed at the heart of a
great rwl, and if adopted, would rU'.-el
a radical and blessed reformation. No
one can deny (hat a sober mm makes a
better cilien, a better legislator, a better
soldier, and is better in every relation iu
life, than a drunkard.
Sober men know what they are doing;
and where d-i inen need to know whit
they are abctit if not amid the peril ol

to have our army and navv resneeled 1 in.

which it will command the resiiect of the
world, and accomplish the obj-ct of its
establishment. Drunken sol hers and sai
lors, inspire neither terror nor refpect in
I ho minds of enemies ag.iinsl whom they
are enlisted in behalf of their country.
This reformation would have a wholesome
influence over every department of civil
life. If ihe army and the navy dispense
Will- the use of intoxicating liquors, the
legislative and judicial department of the
government, would be ashamed to contin
ue their use. Thousands of fathers and
mothers would rise up to bh ss the day
when this need.? 1 reform is effect ed, by
ihe authority or the N-ition d Government,
then their hardy sons m iy enlist in (In
service of their country, and, have no en
emit's to contend with, except such as in
vade their countries rights.
The amendment was adopted, tut after
war is reconsidered, and rejected ly the
casting vote of the speaker.
WILL t( riE!"- Thus
writes a Kansas correspondent of the N''
V. Tribune. We never doubted but that
such would be the result of the free emi
gration movement. Shivery can rut stand
free labor. The very aot of wron :ho
violation of nation,.! f.uih by the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise has given
impulse to free emigration, that will
result in the organization of the free Strte
of Knnsas ten or fifteen years sooner than

. ffinp'ted aggression of the slave power.

scarcely a piece of the boilers to bo found.
We have seen several boats lifter
their boilers hav e e;,,i I,:J, but ncrer
have wc witnessed siiel. H wmk of a
steamer befoic. More llun lialf the
li nght of the boat, from the bow L'avk, is
nothing but ft imsj of fragments.
r -1 the confusion yesterday, wc wtre
unable to procure a list of the unfortunate
suffers on board this illfatud steamer.
This morning Mr. Mr 1'hcrson, the thuf
clerk furnished us such a list of the sur
vivors, and the k 1 l li 11 Mid wounded, as
lie could mi ke out most of the books
have been blown to atoms, ;.nd preventing
him from making out a correct list.
Fortunately there were very few cabin
passengers on board, and it is thought
most of them, if riot all are saved.
The following is tho lijt of the kiLLtn

Mr. Dix survived his injuries until this
