On the first inst., the Senate Kansas
Bill came up in the House to be acted
upon. Mr. Crittendeu's amendment was
adopted, by a rote of 120 to 112, and the
bill as amended, then passed the House
by the same rote as that on the adoption
of the amendment. To all intents and
purposes, this vote seals tho fate of the
measure. It is not likely that the Senate
will accede to the amendments of the
House, nor is it at all likely that the
House will recede from its amendments;
so, in any event, tnis whole matter win
be sent back to the people of Kansas for
settlement. Tho Crittenden amendment
to the Lecompton bill, as passed by the
House, provides that the State of Kansas
shall be admitted upon certain conditions
precedent, namely :
i 1. The Constitution (Lecompton) shill
be submitted to a full, fair aud deliberate
vote of the whole people.
2. That a Board of Commissioners,
composed of the Governor aud Secretary
of the Territory, the Speaker of the
House, and the President of the Council,
shall order the election at which the Con -
stitution is submitted, appoint the day on
which it shall be held, divide the Terri
tory into election districts, direct the man-!
ner of voting, and count and make returns '
of the ballots cast.
3. If the majority of the votes be 'for
the Constitution, the President shall issue
his Proclamation, and Kansas at onco
shall assume the duties and re-ponsibiii-ties
of a sovereign State.

Dear Coubicr: -My present impres
aion is, that there will be no new Land
District created on the riillte Valley. 1
find that the Secretary of the Interior,
the Commissioner of the General. Land
Office, and the Chairmen of the Commit
tees on Public Lands in both houses of
Congress, are opposed to the measures
but are all of them strongly in favor of
removing the oflice from Omaha City to
the interior, at a distance of from forty
to sixty miles from the Missouri river, an
order for which will) in all probability, be
issued in a very short time, S3 that the of
fice can be properly prepared jor the Pub
lic' Land Sales which are to take place in
September next. At all events, I am
satisfied that the interest and convenience
of the numerous settlers of the Platte
Valley will not be verlooked. Either a
new district will be created, (which I bare
no hopes of.) or the office will be removed
from Omaha, certain

Major West, of Pennsylvania, has
been appointed to the office of Marshal
of our Territory, in the place of Rankin,
removed, and his appointment will doubt
less be confirmed by the Senate. The
Major has the appearance and bears the
reputation of a high minded, honorable
geirtlertftfn, and is said to be in every re
spect well qualified to fulfill the duiies of
the office. I think that the people of
Nebraska will be well pleased with him,
and that his appointment will g.ve gener
Owing to the press of other matter, no
further appointments for our Territory
have yet beei made ; they1 will be attend
ed to, however, rery shortly most likely
this week. Mr. Welch will unquestion
ably receive the appointment of Secreta
ry; and I think it quite probable that
Gen. Bowen will be selected to fill the
place to be made vacant by the removal
of that consequential egotist and consum
mate demagogue, Esiabrook ; excellent
appointments, both of them none better
could be made certainly none tha wo'd

Mr. Cobb, of Alabama, Chairman of
the House Committee on Public Lands,
told me a few days ago that he should
certainly report against creating a new
Land District on the Platte, arid recom
mend tha removal of the office from
Omaha City. However, our Delegate
w,u J a M can tj procurft ,hc e
im'iitot a new district, in which, of
he has the cordial co-operation of the
friends of Omaha, but I fear that they
will not succeed. If they do not. the of

The House or R eta es est a tines.
The House is composed of 211 mei.ibers,
including delegates from seven Territo
ries. Of these, 22 have cray hair, and
29 bald ; 17 wear full beards, 5 the mus
tache alone, and 113 have whiskers of
different fashion., from the " goatee" to
the mmton-chop'' s'yle. The appear

the members are generally medium sized

build of the renowned Jack Fa! staff, and
of these Kentucky has a representative
who shows the beat living.
Of the members of the House, 85 are
accompauied by their wives; 25 by their
wives and daughters, and 5 by their
daughters alone. About one-fourth of
the members aie single men, and of these
one-half are confirmed old bachelors, and
the remainder want to get married when
ever they can. There are probably
about two dozen " handsome men," in the
opinion of ladies, in the House, and about
the same number who are, in the opinion
of the samo judges, " hideous."
There are five members who speak on
every question which comes up, aud par
ticipate in all the legislate done, both pub
lic and private. Three always speak for
the ladies in the gallery, and are never
happy unless some " bright eye" are
cazinjr at them. About half the House
, are talking men, and the 4 may be divid
ed into seven classes, as follows: 1st,
j Eloquent and logical orators. 2d, Logi
I cal and eloquent. 3d, Sound reasoners.
4,1. i;0oj utters.
6ih, V ituperative de

clss.es, I may add, are very small, while
the last three are large.
Hon. Johua R. Giddings, of Ohio, is
the oldest member aud the olue.t man in
1 tjte House, lie has been here, I believe,
! about twenty years. Mr. Orr, of South
Carolina, the Soeaker. has represented
. t constituents some fourteen years, and
Mr. Houston, of Alabama, has
the House n arly as long.
A "bird's eye view" of the House
does not strike the observer with a con
viction that it is very great creat in
intellect, great in patriotism, great in soul,
i nere is very nine gen'us 10 emu nasnea

act for calling a Southern Conveu' ion, and
appropriating ten thousand dollars, out of
any monti in tht treasury, to defray ex
peuses, in the event of a rejection of the
Lecompton Constitution by Congress.
Thus it is proposed to take the initiatory
steps for a disolution of the Union. ' The
joke of the whole thins? lies in the fact
thai there it not a dollar in tht trtatury
It is entirely bankrupt, ine state is
compounding with its creditors. Her
politicians are casting about for the iner
est shadow of excuse for repudiation. In
v;e v of the fact that Texas came into the
Union like a spendthrift child, only when
the guardian would consent to pay his
gambling debts, we think it very possible
that the fast " young un is trying to bul
ly Uncle Sam into making another ad
vance, to put him on his lees again. It is
notorious that Texas was absolute)
bought at the compromise of 1850, but
that is no reason why it should be purchas
ed over again at every new controversy,
The vaporings about disunion are only got
up to distract atteution from per barren

convention, has about as much moonthiiu

cannot raise money enough to pay her
