The effect of the moonlight on the eyes in

tho natives toil you, as I afterwards found they
did in Arabia, to always cover your eyes when
you sleep iu the open air. It is rather strange
that the passage in the Psalms—“ The sun shall
not smite thee by day nor the nioon by night"
—should have been thus illustrated, as the ul

strikes and effects ths jight, when you sleep ex

and Mr. Crumpton, tho British Minister, and
the .English Consuls at New York, Philadel
phia ami.Cincinnati are nothing more than
private subjccls of Victoria. After as ample
an apology by Lord Clarendon as any honor
able man could offer, it has been decided by
the Pierce Cabinet to beard the English lion,
in order to woo conclave. Ilow
will Enghtml receive tljo news, and how will
Parliament'sustain the British Ministry In'the !
course they may adopt, are questions asked on
all silks. The decided tone of the London
pTc3s ; (Vjnch is ibTruth almost the sole political

theft all the remomberance of the I'act that :

to this plan last year was that Russia was

If war is to lie the policy, however, it be
hooves usas men to calmly view our exact po

in our midst who believe with all sincerity that
foraii internal complaint there is nothing like
au exterhai remedy. K !l, ! sas fever, they think,
can only be cured by English ointment "or
court piaster. Our scepticism oil this point
is very great; iu the first place we think tiie.
fever was bred in Washington, and will lust as
long as ignorant pruetiti mors are sent there ;
and in the second case, we fear that the pro*
posed remedy would prove worse than the dis
ease. To declare war With this j
boar would ensure the renewa of the active .fi
lm nee between her and Franc -; indeed this is.
probably apart of the progra. me which Louis ;
Napoleon ties written for h;s action in file.- i
Let us recall the scene which will substantiate j
Wliilcthe Russian war was at its height, ]
the man who bad alone caused that smguina j
ry contest. and who had taken upon himself’!
the responsibility of planning the Crimean ex- i
peditkm ajjd the inode of attacking Sebastopol, j
decided that he would deceive tic proiii! guest \
of England. To suggest was almost to com-!
mam), and Windsor Castle was prepared for •
his reception. Not. Windsor Oastle alone, but j
the Quit!kali of 'Lonfioti, tiie banquet chamber i
of the merchant princes ol that city, was deck- j
ed gaily to bid him welcome. Through the j
streets of the great Commercial capital of the i
world, slowiy passed the Emperor as countless \
thbifskiitTs jrJzed on his narrow brow, and cheer- j
etl they knev/ not why; self-pressed, deadly!
cold and stealthy in his tread, lie made.his way j
to the hall, and having partake!) 6f the repast j
rose to deliver the speech that he had enfihed ■
in every sentence. His theme was the alliance
between England and France, and tiie object j
of that alliance lie proclaimed was to put down
slavery all over the world, lie who one mur
derous night stole away the liberties of thirty- i
five millions of French people, coolly said that j
Anglo France alliance meant'the sftppTessiun j
of slavery all over the wolrd.
•Shall we attempt to delude ourselves, as i
doth’General James Watson Webb, and pre- !
same that he intended to refer to all the world |
with the exception of the United States? Far j
better, we think, is it for us to meet the dan- |
ger boldly, and decide that he most probably !
spoke the words after deep deliberation. His \
plans were matured in a prison, and have little
of health in them-, but I hey are as stubbornly
adhered to as are the links to one another in
the stoutest chain. lie doubtless means war
aghinst the liberties tff England aud the Uni
ted States, and to accomplish this he can see j
no readier way than to take part witii the j
former against America. To destroy every ;
bond of union between the two, to weaken i
both and then to invade England and avenge
Waterloo, are designs that seem not improba-|
hie, when we closely study the character of the j
man. As lie decided Russia would bo most j
vulnerable in the South, perhaps he lias deter- !
mined that America is the same. If so, his
wordt at Goidhall had a strange significance.
Be this as it may, if England and the United \

think, be playing blindly into the hands of the j

Our neighbors of the Times can see no use j
for a farther existence of the American party. ;
We presume not; pud that he ever saw any
good in a party opposed to the modern “dem
ocratic cohesion,” we do not believe. But it is
so ordered in tho decrees of Providence that :
men should not agree in all particulrs ; aud in
politics they are farther apart than, in any
other features of faith. Americans South, as

the dark stream cf Freesoilism and Black Re

j A Minnesota correspondent gives tiie New
York Herald some details regarding the pro
posed buffalo huntand expeditieff to the salt
springs of that Territory. The region in
which these springs arc found lies between the
47th and 49th degrees north latitude, and 97th
and 99tl> degrees west longitude. Our first in
formation regarding it was derived from a sol
di.-r in the expedition, spilt.'put to explore it
[.froth Fort Saelling, by Maj or. 1 Long, in 1822-
He says.that they had been traveling sev
i cn|| days over ‘a vast rolling plain, with no
i trees or water; the troops and horses were al
most famished with thirst, when they came
j suddenly upon the shore of a beautiful lake
about half a mile r, diameter, sunk down in
j the deep plain. It resembles a vast sink hole.
tFrom a height above the waters a vast snow
joank appeared to lino its shore ; but upon our
examination it appeared to be an incrustation
of salt as pure and white as snow. The wa
j tors ,of tho lake were like the strongest brine.
| So etrirfg was it bathing in it, upon
j coming out, in a few mmV.tes V oid'd be cover
jcd with a white crystalizrtion of saTt. If this
salt region be as it is supposed to be, a rail
road : projected into it would prove the best
stock in the country, There are mines of un
developed wealth, more extensive, more dhra
ble-e.nd more important than all the gold re
| gions beyond tho Rocky Mountains. A char
j ter, granting excellent corporate privileges,
| has been obtained froth the MiiihcsPfa. Legis
lature this winter, for the salt Company, which
Jis already organized. Many of tiie members
j of this company will accompany tho expedition,
and add interest to the buffalo hunt, in more
I’iill y exploring and investigating these salt re
gions. It was»tlie intention to commence, this
expedition on the oth of June next. Y|ut as
many frbm abroad who are desirous ofaaccoin
| panying it, are delegates to the democratic
J convention at Cincinnati, it will be postponed
until immediately after the adjournment of
; that body, or until more definite letters as to
their intentions are 'reebE’ea.

We do not purpose to repiy to the Georgian
! 4 Journal's menagarie article of yesterday, but
j as it seems to think that, in our “hunt” alter
freesoil Nebraska Democrats, Tve. flushed up j
' “small game” in the Coos Democrat, wo have i
no objection to trotting out” a few' animals of j
| n larger breed. There are large “coons,” friend |
I Georgian, whose paws” have been thrust into j
j the “Black Republican oyster,” as we shall!
proceed to show.
| Perhaps Senator Dauglas, the most prcrab [
neat candidate for the Dornocrrtic nomination ;
! at Cincinnati, is large enough, game and if so. |
j we invite attention to his construction of the j
j Nebraska bill, as sot forth in his great (Jhica-!
jgo speech. Ho says :
| “I to the consideration of those 1
| provisions of the Nebraska Bill, which have:
! been most forcibly assailed. It lias been said, j
! and every wliefo repeated in Jjhe Slave holding ;
States, that it was the intention and legal effect
■of the measure to extend slavery, and to legis- j
late it into the territory now free. It is cer
i tain that those who make this "charge have'
never read the bill, comprehended its principles ; I
otherwise, they stand convicted by the law it-j
self of slating that which is expressly contra-;
d:< t:d bv the'tcrms of the act.”
Hdrc it is expressly declared that the man
who says that it is either the intention or the
legal effect of the Nebraska bill to extend slave
ry into free territory, has never read the bill
or does not comprehend its meaning. He
goes on to show from history, that the bill not
only does not enconrageiflavery, bnt must op
erate to its exclusion. He says :
“The, people of California, when left perfect
ly free to do as they pleased, formed a consti
! tution prohibting the introduction of slavery.
I California, therefore, became a feel* Sure, not
! at the bidding, or b} the dictation cf Congress,
1 but under the operation of the principle of the
j Nebraska Rill.”
! “Again-'Slavery was abolished in New Hamp
| shire, Rhode Island. Connecticut, N. York,
| Pennsylvania an<L New Jersey under the ope
j ration of the principles of the Nebraska bill,
\ which under the Constitution of the United
States, leave the people of each State free to j
! form and regulate their domestic institutions |
I in their own way.’ ”
So much for Douglass, Wo never lend onr
ammunition to the enemy, but should the)
I Georgian wish to see the speech from which :
wo have quoted, lie will find it ill the N Jional
Intelligencer. Nov. 730th, 1854.
General Shields, Mr. Douglas’ colleague in
the Senate.at that time, and over whose fr
eer; tre feat roTnatiy tear* wrfe shell by anti-
American orators ami editors till over the

bn the.same grounds. In a Fpeedi made by
him at Springfield. Illinois, after the passage
Os the bill, hs said : ■
“Kansas and Nebraska were now free and
the people there would keep them free. *
* * * * the establishment of slave
ry'in these Territories was not only improba
ble, but impossible, * * • * •*

These gentleman can hardly beclassed ns;
“small game,” yet, tp- convince our eotempora ;
ry beyond all question that we do not waste 1
our energies in a hunt for sparrows, we would :
refer him to an interview between the Presi
dent of the "Unjicd States,' 'FttiHdi'T. Fierce, j
and the Hon. Jure (,1?...cr.5. of Alabama,!
in which the former gave the deliberate opin
ion that the Nebraska bill was a measure in j
behalf of freedom, and expressed his utter as
tonishment that any Northern man should be
found voting against it. This* statement has
been made by Mr, Clemens over his own signa

*•' In nothing, then, need tiie Sooth shrink in j
comparison with the Northern portion of this
Union. Not only has it been built up and en-1
riehed* by the products of Southern industry,
but some of the principal nations of the world j
are dependent on the Southern States, not only j
for their commercial but their social existence
and stability. I [(.■:(' in fact, resides the goose
which lays the golden eggs ; here is the foun
tain which originates the wealth of modern j
nations, and especially of the Northern part ol j
this nation. Her merchants, her manufactures,!
her shipping, her seamen, all derive employment!
awl wealth from these much slandered Southern !
States. A hurricane, or a late or early frost
that destroys the cotton crop of a considerable •
portion ot' the South, is felt in ail the markets
of the world to the extremest range of civili
zation. Drought or floods, which materially
injures the cereal crop, causes gaunt famine to
stare millions in the i'ace[ at;d becomes the har
binger of frightful pestilence.
“ Nor arc there any sound grounds for the
opinion that the South is not as susceptible of
a dense population as the North, The capa j
city to sustain a large population depends upon I
tiie productiveness of the soil for (hose articles j
which arc necessary to support human life, ami j
this inis been shown by the extensive prc-va- j
ienee of its capacity to produce every species j
of the cereaiia in such eminent profusion ; and I
the question might be safely left here. But |
there is scarcely an article that nourishes mail!
which is not more easily and abundantly pro-1
dneed jn th:; South than in the North. In the j
more Southern portion, where two crops of'
grain (as before said) can be produced every j
year oil thr same sod, and garden vegetables ;
and fruit ii the utmost abundance, they do not j
always exist of tho sume quality iu the South |
as at the North, merely because we are not j
compelled to exercise the same eare in their
cultivation for a livelihood, and because the
larger and more important staples are more
profitable and we have not to depend for sus
tenance or comfort on the minor productions,
as those in less favored regions.
“In the South we are comparatively free
from sectarian disagreement, no bigotry, no
ridienlou humbugs about women's right.-[ false
philanthropy or pseudo-religion; each attends|
to his o’, a business, and is contented under the

Wasmsotok, May26.—The House Commit
tee of Investigation waited on Mr. Sumner to
day in discharge of their duty regarding the re
cent, ersa'lt, He was in ted, bus gave 'Kit
testimony and v;aa atco cross-examined. He
was unable to sit up during the visit of the
Committee, but did so a short time to day. Ho
is st.il very weak, and his physicians counsel
him not to move cut of the house for a week.
The following is Mr. Sumner's statement on
oath:—“l attended tho Senate as usual on
Thursday the 22d of May. A ftef some formal
business, a message was received from the llousp
of Representatives announcing the dentin of tr,
member of that body from Missouri. This was
followed by a brief tribute to tho deceased front
Mr. Geyer, of Mo , when, according to usage
aniV out of respect to the deceased, the Senate
adjourned. Instead of leaving the Chamber
with the rest on tho adjournment, I contiuued
in my seat occupied with my pen.
While thus intent, in order to be in season
for the Mail, which was soon to close, I was
approached by several persons who disked to
consult with me, but I answered!Them prompt
ly and briefly, excusing myself, for tire reason
that I was much engaged ; when the last of
these'persons left me, 1 drew my arm chair
close to my desk, and with my legs under the.
desk, continued writing. My attention at thin
time liras so entirely drawn from ail other ob
ject-, that though there must- have boon many
persons- in the Senate, I saw no body. While
thus intent with my head bent over my writ- .
ing, I was addressed by a pcition who approach
ed the front of my desk, so entirely unoliscfV
e.tV-at f was nut aware cf MS presence, until
1 heard my name pronounced. As I looked up
with my pen ’in r.iy hand,- I saw a tall man,
wliose countenance, tvas not famiiliar, standing
direel ly over me, and at the same moment I
caught these words: ‘T have'read your speech
twice over carefully -it is a lihei on South
Carolina and Mr. Butler, who is a relative of
mine.” While these words were still passing
from h's lips, he commenced a succession of
blows with a heavy cane on my hare head : by
the first of which 1 was stunned so as to loose
I no longer saw my assailant nor any other
person or object ill 'lre rttom. What”l did
afterward was dvtre, almost unconsciously, ac
ing under t're n.'irStS of self-defence. "With
my head already bent down, I rose
scat wrenching up my desk which was screwed
to tka floor and then pressing forward while
my assailant continued lus blows. 1 had no
other consciousness until 1 found myself ten
feet forward in front of my desk lying on the
fioor of the Senate, with my [deeding head
supported on the knee of a gentleman whom I
soon recognized by voice and manner as Mr.
Morgan, of New York. Other persons there
were about me offering friendly assistance, but
I did not recognize any of them. Others there
were at a distance looking on and offe ring no
assistance, of v/hom 1 recognized only Mr.
Douglas, of Illinois, Mr. Toomts, of 'Georgia,
and. I thought also, my assailant standing be
. t.veen them. I was helped from the floor and
conducted into tire lobby of the Senate, where
I was placed upon a sofa. Os these who help
ed mo there I have no recollection. - - v
As I entered the lobby I recognized Mr. Sli
dell. of Louisiana, who retreated, but I recog
nized no one else until I felt a friendly grasp of
the hand, which seemed to come from Mr.
Campbell. oT Ohio. 1 have a vague impression
that Mr. Bright, President of the Senate, spoke
to me while 1 was on the floor of the Senate or
in the lobby. 1 make this statement in answer
to the interrogatory of the Committee, and
offer it as presenting completely all my recol
lections of the assault and of tire attending cir
cumstances, whether immediately before Or
immediately after. I desire to add, that be
sides the words which I have given, as uttered
by my assailant, I have an indistinct recollec
tion of the words "old man,” but these' are so
enveloped ill the mists which ensued 1 freju .the
first t, low. that 1 rim net sure whether they
were uttered ernot.
On cross-examination, Mr. Sumner said tliat
he was entirely without arms of any kind, abd
that he had no notice or warning of any kind,
direct nor indirect, of this assault, j
In answer to another question: Tiff. Sumner
replied - that what he had said nos Mr. But'cr
was strictly responsive to Mr. Butler's ‘speech.’
