The honorable Senator trom Ohio [Mr Pugh] his companion in arms too seoma to have forgot- ten him. Mr. Pugh, Mr. President, I desire that the tieoator from Iowa shall not misrepresent me. JmwJp no remark whatever not a syllable in rtferruce to the gentleman who brought this pe- tition here, I aWktained carefully from anything Of the sort; and tho Senator will BO find in the of my remarks.

I think, if honorable Senators will suffer me ot proceed, thoy will lind that I do cot differ from them us to what they did elate. Mr. Toucy. I did not pay one word in regard to Col. Lane. I did not allude to him. Mr. liarlan. It is this death-like silence [luuglt- UP] that, 1 caused the honorable Sena- tor from South Carolina to inquire of tho Senate who was the bearer of the petition? All his friwuls had forgotten him. The honorable frnator from South Carolina asked, Who is this Junes H. Lane} lie told us ho did not know him. The honorable Senator from Ohio made no response. Mr. Pugh. I heard no such question. If tho Senator himself, or any one else, had asked mo vlto WAS Col. LHIIO, I should huve given all tho Information in mj power; and if the Senator do- tiro IDC to giso it, I will do so now. Mr. llurlan. Foi Innately now, by reference lothc records nud the history ot tho country, I tolerably well posted up. If the infomation had been given on Thursday last it would hnve been very acceptable. Mr. Pugh. Then the Senator does not wish to from inc. Mr. Uutler. 1 never mentioned Lane's name. Mr. liarlan. By reference to the printed of the Honorable Senator from South AJwoliita, he will lind that he propounded tho question. How did this petition get here? and ho toW us that ho did not know. The honorable from Michigan, too, who presented the petition was uuablo to answer tho question. It iMiucd just at that time that his memory was ebliviout, and that ho had forgotten the author of the letter addressed to himself at Paris, die- Uled and drawn up, 1 bcliovo, by this Jamoa II. Urne. Mr. Cass. Does tho Senator mean to say that I w do any allumou to him at all? Mr. Harbin.

Why, sir, you have fio right to require every man to get up here, answer every question put in that way.

Tho time has been, nir, when the Whig jour- nals aijd chjirgod cgrruntiph on tho Democratic party for elevating tnott to place and power who were destitute of honesty and moral integrity. The charge made on Thursday last, by Democratic Hcnators. against a gentle- man who has been the champion and standard- bearer of the Democrutic party for years would have furnished them tho occasion for Buy- ing that "it wan just as they that he had been trained in a bad political school." But sir, when the virulent feelings that sometimes accompany party contests subjide; and espe- cially when increasing jcars bring ex- perience and wisdom, we learn to make less (Jis- tinotion between tho honesty of men on account of their political affinities. I have long since learned tlmt men may be my most bitter political arid yot be honorable, upright, and truthful. Although Mr, Lnne IIHH been a politi- cal opponent of mine all his life, so iarns I know, he is still a man of integrity and truth. It seems to mo to be a very severe school of politics that uBSttilu all its old war-worn soldiers aa morally dishonest and corrupt, who cunnot endorse its every erratic dogmti; but a much severer princi- ple of legislative policy, to deny all such the right pf petition the right to relate, in their own language, the narrative of their own ances. Should they make the statements tlmt arc un- true, tho Committee on Territories arc compe- tent to investigate their credibility. If a petition should bo received and referred, on doubtful evi- dence of authenticity, the committees of thib body, elected by the majority, arc competent to entertain that question, and to report as they nmy tho facts to warrant. It seems to me that there WHS no pressing necessity for stopping tho ordinary business of legislation to enable tlio Senate of the United States to go down into a committee room, and take from the of the committee a paper previously referred, for the purpose of re-examining its chirography. LIKE is glimpse of manners and customs in Dubuque is got from the following tern, which we clip from the Republican. As we were passing along Main street, near taventh, Sunday night, we met a gent with a "ady swinging to each arm, puffing away with ihcir cigars, and putting on as many airs as a French dancing master. This female smoking .ipon the street is a new feature in the history of If this habit becomes general, our jigar merchants will have much cause for re- 'oicing, as their trade will much improve. KKIUOUK serious accident oc- curred to the Chicago train when some five miles East of this city on Monday morning last. The water bad been rising Sunday and was in many places up to the track and nt tbe point where the accident occurred, bad washed the earth from ono side. ThoJJmaehinc went oil' and the trunk was forced on the top of it, while the baggage car was tipped over. The fireman was very serious- ly crushed and cannot long survive. We could not learn his name, The Engineer was severely uud'hruiscd about the head, but is notconsid- dered dungcorus. Mr. Conductor Howard was n the baggngo car and was thrown or jumped out and hud a leg broken. A brcakman was slightly injured. The passengers, beyond a few jruises, were uninjured.

Don't ct mad about it. It is all fair enough. Looking at the fact that Mister Jones has been ten years in the Senate never before opened lis mouth, it does look a little hard that he should feel called upon to fee Administration papers for jiving currency to hia maiden speech.

In ase it should come out that Jones had been palming off ono of Deans old political sermons iipon the Senate ns a speech of his own would he not bo liable to arraingmncnt nt tho bar for con- tempt Just now that dignified body is not only sensitive, but very sharp upon the subject of forgery and imposition.

DODY Thursday, while a son of Mr. living five miies north east of this place, was nding across the prairie in search of cattle, he discovered the remains of a human body near a quarter of a mile from the main road, and a little further from the residence of Mr. Meek. Intelligence of the fact was convey- ed to town on Fiiday morning and justice Wood- stock summoned cqro.ner'sjury, and proceeded to examine tho remains. The body bora every appearance of having lain there for several flesh was en- tirely gone, and the bones scattered about. It appeared, however, to be the remains of a young man of rather a small stature. The clothing con- sisted of black cloth pants, a greenish cloth short coat or roundabout, black lasting vest, cotton fihirt, strong lineti under-shirt, a black bombazin scarl or neck-tie a Kossuth hat, and a pair of bro- shoes. A single barrel pistol and a kind of dirk knife wcro lying on the ground a trunk key and a smaller one, apparently belonging to a carpet sack, were found in the vest pocket; also the romuhia of u cuuplcs of apples and a small red card, but BO obliterated that nothing could be made out. No clue could be obtained as to name or residence of the deceased. A scrap of newspaper which appeared to have been around tho pistol, boro dato of St. Louis, August 1855. From the appearance of the remains, and oth- er circumstances, the absence of everything val- uable, tho fact that one of the pant pockets turned wrong out, and that all the clothing vest, and both perforated about the middle of the back, apparently with a ball, the jury was of opinion that he camo to his death by violence some time last autumn, and gave a verdict Press, May 7th.

He run his fingers through his hair twice, then grinned, then he cocked hift eyes up at the ceiling like a monkey hunting Hies, then down came one of hid fingers, and I heard a delightful sound similar to that produced by n cockroach upon the tenor string of a fiddle. Down came another, and I was reminded of the wind whist- ling through a knot hole in a hen coop. He touched his thumb and I thought I was in an orchard listening to the braying of a jackass. Now he run his fingers along the keys, and I thought of a boy rattling his stick upon a picket fence. All of a sudden he stopped, and I tho't something had happened. Then carnc down both fists, and oh Loul! such a noise was never heard before. I thought a hurricane had struck the house and tho walls were caving in.

Before that fool instrument of torture came into the house I could enjoy myself, but now every darned woman in the neighborhood must be invited to hear the new pinno, and every time it shrieks out like a locomotive with the bron- chitis, I have to praise its tone, and when the invited guests arc playing I have to say "Exqui- delightful I Heavenly! and all such trash, while at the same time 1 know just asmuch about music as a codfish.
