Sheboygan Lake Journal (Newspaper) - February 1, 1854, Sheboygan, Wisconsin Biennial Sellout of the Legislators In his message the1 Sbvernof alflida 'to a eonstitntional amendment pending; hy which it is proposed to holtl BtennM Sn- of Annual sessions of the LfgitelaVuru, To tho, uninitiatedj the proposition ni'ay neem to be v mere measure of reform, the necessity of which is occasioned 'by the ex- cessive legislation with which Wisconsin IIM been cursed; but to those who have taken tho troubln to examine the causes which actuate the prime movers therein, n very different object is apparent. That the Legihlature should he more chary of passing bills of a local character, or of modifying or repealing existing enactments, and more economical in tho duration and expense, of their sessions, is a self evident fact which no reasoning can weaken. But what has nil this to do with the present movement? Nothing more or less than the election of a XJ. S. Senator by the present Legislature! Wriggle around it as they may, it is undeniably a movement to place some dissatisfied and dissappointed aspirant in the seat now so honorably filled by the Honorable Isaac P. Walker. A- while ago, the Ozaukee Times intimated that a movement of this kind had been set on foot, by the of Mr. Walker to his re-election this winter! This was but a "feeler" for the public pulse; and we mistrusted then what lias since proved to be the it was put forth by the malcontents to ascertain whether the peo- ple would cheerfully swallow the dose pre- pared for them by the railroad Tho bait did'nt take; the intimation was broadly denied, and the press and people manifested a very general determination to frown flown all such attempts to "steal a march" upon them. Hence, the system of tactics must be changed; the real attack must be covered by a feint. So this 'bien- nial sessions' project, which was brought forward at the late session of the Legisla- ture, and had been almost forgotten in its pile of rubbish, is raked up, the dust brush- ed from it, and the assistance of Tax-Payers invoked to its support as the only means of lessening taxation. Pass the bill and there would be NO regular session of the Legisla- ture in 1855! Then the Rail Road Spec- ulators, Land Grabbers, and disappointed office and place hunters, would say to the people: "We must elect a U. S. Senator at THIS session, or Wisconsin will be represent- ed but in part for a Now let the People watch the Legisla- ture! We pity the member who should attempt to foist an election upon the peo- ple at the present session; or who would aid in the movement to be effected by the passage of the Biennial Sessions bill. No Senator or Assemblyman who is in favor of a clear expression of the will of the people, in the choice of a U. S. Senator, can for a moment listen to the hypocritical professions of a clique of unprincipled poli- ticians who cling to the Democratic party only that they may catch some of the drip- pings of the public patronage, and whose only strength is obtained by the prodigal expenditure of the money they have dis- honestly acquired either from tha Govern- ment or from individuals who have unfor- tunately fallen into their power. A FITTING the fore- going was written, the Madison "Argus" of the 18th, has been received. That print thus authoritatively speaks of the design of the conspirators to elect a U. S. Senator this it is mentioned, we are not sure that it would not the very best thing that could be then goes on to urge the Legislature to make choice of some person to fill that office. We pause to see whether its recommen- dation will find an answering echo in eith- er Crescent. Washington, Jan. 22. The Cabinet was in session all day yes- terday, and to a late hour in the evening, discussing the merits of the Nebraska bill and the amendment proposed by Senator Dixon, repealing the Missouri compromise as applied to any Territory of the United States. It is understood Messrs. Jefferson Davis and Dobbin took strong grounds in favor of the abrogtaion of the compromise of 1820, whilst the other members of the Cabinet sustained the bill as reported by Judge Douglas. The South takes the position that unless the Missouri compromise is repealed, its provisions must hold good as far as Nebras- ka is concerned, that Territory having been expressly included in the act of 1820, and slavery prohibited north of 36-30. Mr. Douglas bill refers to the compromise measures of 1850, and upon turning to them it is found that in the act establishing territorial government over New Mexico, proviso is inserted, written by Senator Mason, of Virginia, declaring that nothing in that act shall be construed to invalidate the third clause of the second section of the joint resolution of annexing Texas. That clause recognizes the Missouri compromise line in distinct terms. It is therefore clear that the compromise measures of 1850 did not in fact repeal the Missouri Compromise but simply declined to extend it beyond where it already is, to terri- tory acquired from Mexico. The South feel this and hence their solicitude for a re- peal of the law of 1820. fST Major S. R. Hobbie, First Assistant Post Master General, is lying hopelessly ill, of Consumption, in Washington. It is said there was an affecting scene in the sick chamber of this gentleman on the 19th init. His daughter Mary was there, in the presence of her prostrate and almost dying father, united in holy wedlock, by the Rev. Mr. Butler, to Nathan Reese. Esq., of New- burgh, N. Y. The fond father apprehen- ding his tpeedy dissolution, requested that the nuptials should he celebrated before he bad Men the last of earth.

The London Observer says: "Agents are their way to the United States to purchase ships" and ammunition for the Russians.

Is Douglas asked permis- sion of the Senate to submit a report from tha Committee on Territories in relation to the Nebraska bill. The committee} have had their attention called to the Loutliern boun- dary of the Territory of Nebraska, as fixed by the bill already reported, which is on the line of 38 30. Their attention has been called by the chairman of the commit- tee on Indian Affairs to the fact that that boundary would divide the Cherokee coun- try J whereas, by taking the parallel of 37 deg. north latitude as the southern bounda- ry line would run between the Chero- k'ees and the OsagHS. We have concluded, therefore, to vary the southern boundary, in order not to divide the Cherokee nation by the terms of the bill. Then there are two delegates hero who have been elected by the people of that Ter- ritory. They are 'not legal delegates, of course, but they have been sent here as agents. They have petitioned us to make two Ter- ritories instead of one, dividing them by the 40th parallel of north Kansas and Nebraska Territories. Upon consult- ing with tho delegates from Iowa, I find that they think that their local interests, as well as the interests of the Territory, require that the proposed Territory of Nebraska should be divided into two territories, and the people ought to have two delegates. So far as I have been able to consult the Mis- souri delegation, they are of the same opin- ion. The committee, therefore, have con- cluded to recommend the division of the territory into two Territories, and also to change" tho boundary in tho manner I have described. We have prepared our amendment in the form of a substitute, to come in lieu of that which'we have already reported. We have also incorporated into it one or twp_ other amendments, which make the provisions of the bill upon other and more delicate ques- tions more clear and specific, so as to avoid all conflict of opinion. I propose to substi- tute this bill which I hold in my hand, for the one reported by the committee on terri- tories. I merely ask now that it may be printed, so tiiat Senators can see what it is. The motion to print was agreed to. jjtgi- Gen. Campbell, the Mexican boun- dary Commissioner, has arrived at Wash- ington.
