The Vegetable Garoex. Sow early varieties of English peas during the first lortnignt in .anuary, ana continue to sow a succession every weet during tue spring and early summer. ioe and earth them up in dry, warm weather, and set a row of sticks to support the vine as soon as they require it. Where English peas are wanted in large quantities for market, it will be found too laborious a task to stick them. For that purpose they may be planted in single rows 2 J to 3 feet apart, and left to Itamble on the ground. Amongst the score of varieties t of English peas, the extra early is one of the best, yielding a fair crop of good sized pods. Dwarf imperial, if planted at the sametime, will succeed them, and Prussian blue will come at last, and stand the heat better than most other peas. Cabbages, Lnttucc, Radishes, Salsify, Spinage, Parsnips, Beets, etc., may now, be sown on the ground properly prepared. Choose a warm exposure spade, manure and pulverize your beds, well, and do not plant your seed too deep. If you have cabbage plants saved during autumn in a pit; recollect to give them full air, whenever the weather proves mild, that they may not become too weak. By doing this, you will have plants ready-, for trans planting daring the month of February. Turnips should now be sown for spring use. As they stand a good cieal of cold, with a slight protection, the bed should be covered slightly, with pine tops. The flat Dutch and red topped Dutch are the best varieties for erly use. Colza or Rape Till f siioulu be sown now, it tne season proves favorable, you will nave a supply ot excel lent greens for the March. table in the beo-inninar of If onions (black seed) have not been sown vet, it should be done at once Irish potatoes may now be planted for early crops. Plant the sets eight or ten inches apart, on course litter, long manure or straw, in the bottom of deep trenches, three feet apart. Put a handful of manure on each set and cover it with five or six in ches of earth. I la nl the earth well, wall about the steins as they advance in growth but do not cover the tops with dirt. Prepare all your garden implements for use, this month; and your ground spaded or plowed thoroughly, turning deeply under all the manure or vegetable matter that you can obtain. Be sure never to stir the ground or plant any seed, especially on stift' land, when the soil is wet. Hot bets should be prepared the latter part of this month, in order that you may have a good supply of cucumber, cabbage, tomato and other plants for spring opera tions. The Orchard. Plant immediately all the finest varieties of apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, quinces, pom granates, figs, grapes, tee., giving the pref erence, in all cases, to trees and vines raised in the South. One tree set out now, is worth two set out a month hence. Strawberry beds may be planted any time before March, but the sooner the better. Ocu Receipt for Ci;rixo Beef and Pork. The receipt, which originated with us, and has now had many years of trial, we believe to be unsurpassed, as a pickle. Nearly all the modern receipts which have appeared in the different agricultural jour nals, partake in some" instances., almost identically of the ingredients and proportions set lorth in ours, which we first laid before our readers some fifteen or eighteen years ago. At this period in the season, when farmers and others will soon be putting down their winter's, and we may add their next year's supply of meat, it may be of service to re-publish the receipt, which, is as follows: Water, one gallon; salt, one and a half nnnrirls? lrnun cnn-. l,..ir t -i half i V v..n, u,iU pouuu; saipetre, in uuua, poiasu, nait ounce In this raito the pickle to be inerenso! in any quantity desired. Let these be boiled together until all the dirt from the salt and sugar (which will not be a little) rises to the top and is skimmed off. Then throw the pickle into a large tub to cool, and when cold, pour it over your beef or pork, to remain the usual time, say from four to six weeks, according to the size of the pieces, and the kind of mea- Th meat must be well covered with the pickle, and it should not be put down for at least two days after killing, during which time it should be slightly sprinkled with powered saltpetre. Several of our friends have omitted the boiling of the pickle, and found it to answer equally as well- It will not, however, an swer so well. By boiling the pickle it is pu rified for the amount of dirt which is thrown off, by the operation, from tie salt and and suo-ar would surprise one not acquainted with the fact. I Admission oz xvansa?. The report in the Senate on the Admission fff Kansas. ' The report submitted in the U. S. Senate on Thursday, by Mr. Green, from the ma jority of the committee on territories, on the Lecompton constitution, (and which was ac- Icompanied by a bill for the admission oT Kansas, is a very elaborate document, and gbBS into a full history of the movements in Kansas from the inception of the territorial goernment down to the present time. The Union gives the following abstract of it : After summmo: up the evidence, mostly derived from official sources, the committee say that appears to them, from the official evidence adduced, "that the opposition in Kansas to the Lecompton convention con sisted of persons eiiffaored in insurrection, rebellion . and revolution. Some few are knowiTT,tre citizen sjpfthe United States. Whether others are cifcizen?wiens, whether in allegiance or not, they are all known to be enemies of the government, and openly engaged in attempts against law and order i?i the territory, and against the peace and quietude of society. Many of them have been shown by Gov. Walker to be hired mercenaries sent out by the abolition so cieties of the, East; and ill working in con cert tu aecoplisht;4frhsas what t!fce Su preme Court and public sentiment have de cided Congress has no power to do; that is, to prohibit slavery in the Territory of Kan sas; and more than that, to prevent the people of the Territory from exercising the privilege of deciding that question for them selves in their own way; to do which they have gotten up military organizations of a rebellious character, have committed the most revolting outrages against persons and property, threatening to deluge the land in blood, alienating one section of the Union from the other, and endangering the exis tence of free government. Such are the characters, such are the objects and dange rous results of the opponents of theLecomp ton constitution. But without regard to these insurrectionary movements, the regular legal convention of Kansas, in pursuance of law, assembled and adopted the constitution now betore the committee, which is tho roughly republican in form. Out of defe rence to those who might be opposed to Afri can slavery, and to avoid all pretexts of complaint on the part of opponents, the con vention submitted the question of slavery or no slavery to a direct vote of the bona fide inhabitants of the Territory. That election was ordered for the 21st December, 1857, when it was accordingly held and resulted as follows" : . Constitution with slavery 6,22G votes. Constitution without slavery 5613 " Making an ao-rre2ate of G,795 " An opportunity has consequently been afforded to the people of Kansas to decide this question of slavery for themselves, and that decision is now before us with all the sanction of law. No real or valid exception can be taken to any other part of the con- has well said in his message : " In fact the general provisions of our recent State constitution, after an experience of eighty years, are so similar anu so excellent tnac id would be difficult to go far wrong at the present day in framing a new constitution. " The constitution conforms precisely to what Governor Walker said would meet his most cordial approval, and that he should devote his whole time in addresses every day to the people in the Territory to insure its adop tion. The committee further say that they do not approve the ordinance accompanying the constitution, and report against its accep tance; but they do not regard it as any part of the constitution, if the State be admitted into the Union as recommended. In con clusion, they express the opinion that Avhen a constitution of a newly formed State created out of our own territory is presented to Congress for admission into the Union it is no part of the duty or privilege of Con gress either to approve or disapprove the constitution itself, and its various provisions, or any of them, but simply to see whether it be the legal constitution, of the new State, whether it be republican in form, whether the boundarie3proposed be admissible, and whether the number of inhabitants is suffi cient to justify independent State organiza tion. Believing that the paper presented is the legal constitution of Kansas, that it is republican in its form, that the boundaries proposed by it are admissible; and, conced ing the sufficiency of its population the com mittee recommend the admission of Kansas into the Union upon the constitution pre sented, and report a bill accordingly. The bill as follows : Whereas, the people of the Territory of Kansas by their representatives in conven tion assembled at Lecompton, in said Ter ritory, on Monday, the fourth day of Septem ber, one thousand eight hundred and fifty seven, having the right of admission into the Union as one of the United States of Ame rica, consistent with the federal constitution, in virtue of the treaty of cession by France of the province of Louisiana, made and con cluded on the 30th day of April, 1803, and in accordance with the act of Congress ap proved on the 30th May, A. D. 1854, en titled "An act to organize the Territory of Kansas and Nebraska;" did form for them selves a constitution and State government, republican in form, and the said convention has, in their name and behalf, asked the Congress of the United States to admit the Territory into the Union as a State, on an equal footing with the other States : j Be it enacted by the Seriate and House of ty eprcscntativesofthe United States of America in Congress asspmhlnJ . That the State of Kansas shall be, and is hereby declared to be, one of the United States of America, and admitted into the Union on an equal footing with the original States, in all respects whatever; and the said State shall consist of all the territory included within the fol lowing boundaries, to wit : Beginning at a p.vint on the western boundary of the0 State of Missouri, where the thirty-seventh par allel of latitude crosses the same; thence west on said parallel to the eastern boun dary ol New Mexico; thence north, on said boundary to latitude thirty-eight; thenre following said boundary westward to the eastern boundary of the Territory of Utah, on the summit of the Rocky Mountains; thence northward on said summit to the fortieth parallel of latitude; then cast on said parallel to the western boundary of the otate oi Aiissoun; thence south-: with the western boundary of said State to the place oi Degmning. rrovidcd : That nothing herein contained respecting the boundary of said State shall be construed to impair "the right of person or property now pertaining to tne Indians m said .territory, so Ion- as such rights shall remain unextinguished by treaty between the United States and such Indians, or to include any territory which, by treaty with such Indian tribes, is not without the consent of said tribe to be in cluded within the territorial limits or, juris- diction of any State or Territory, but all such territory shall be excepted out of the boundaries, and constitute no part of the State of Kansas until said tribe shall sig nify their assent to be included within said State, or to affect the authority of the gov ernment of the United States to make any regulations respecting such Indians, thtir lands, property or other rights; by treaty, lawvpr : otherwise, which it would ave """Hn competent to make if " this act nad:Treh passed. - . j Sec. 2. And le it further enacted. That tl State of Kansas is admitted into the Union upon the express condition that said State shall never interfere - with the primary disposal of the public lands, or with any regulations which Congress may fmd'necessary for securing the title in said lands to the bona fide purchasers and grantees thereof, or impose or levy and tat, assessment or imposition of any descriptioji whatever upon them or property of the Unite$ States, within the limits of said State; aufl nothing in this act shall be construed as an assent by Congress to all or to any of the prop ositions or claims contained in the ordinance of the said constitution of the people of Kansas, nor to deprive the said State of Kansas of tjie same grants which were contained in the act of Congress, entitled "An act to authorize the people of the Territory of Minnesota to fona a constitution and State government, preparatory to admission into the Union on an equal foot ing with the original .States," approved Feb., 26, 185.7. i Sec. 3. And be it. further enacted, That until the next general cet-sus shall be taken, and an appointment of representation made, the State of Kansas shall be entitled to one representa tive in the House of" Representatives of the United States. Mr. Douglas presented a written report, giving, at considerable length, the reasons which induced him to dissent from the conclu. sious of the majority of the committee. lie states that he has seen no satisfactory evidence that the Lecompton constitution is the act and deed of the people of Kansas, or that it ern- the Lecompton convention was not clothed with competent authority to establish a con- itution w thout the consent of Congress, which had been expressly withheld iu this case; and hence the convention only had such power as the territorial legislature could rightfully con fer, and no more. That, was, the power to form a constitution and send it to Congress in the form of a memorial for admission, which could be accepted or rejected according as it embodied or did not embody the popular will. He argues that all the proceedings of the convention should have been held in strict obe dience to the authority of the territorial gov ernment, while in fact they were declared to be in force and to take effect in defiance ol tne authority cf the territorial government, as well as without the consent of Congress. He be lieves that the only lawful election which has been held on the adoption of the constitution was that held on the 4th of January, 185b, which was held in obedience to a law passed by the Territorial Legislature, that Legislature having been established by Congress with full legislative power over all rightful subject. with in the territory. The people of Kansas having repudiated the Lecompton constitution at that election, he cannot consent to the passage of a bill imposing that constitution upon -them against their will. Mr. Cel'amer submitted a minority report, embodying the views of himself and Mr. Wade, which expressed the opinion that :to admit Kansas into the Union under the Lecompton constitution would be "but to give success to fraud and encouragement to iniquity, and to turn over that people not to an election legally and fa'irly conducted, but such State- officefand legislators as said Calhoun shall hereafter pro claim, and on such contingency as he shall de termine; and his long, mysterious, and inexcusa ble indecision and reserve but encourages ex pectations in ootn parties, one ot wlach is cer tainly doomed to disappointment. " The several reports were ordered to be print ed, and Mr. Green gave notice that on some early day, after the Senators should have an opportunity to read the reports, he should call up the subject for consideration. . The Army and Navv of Spain. A Wash ington lettpr-writer, to show that Spain, is not the "sick-man" generally supposed, gives cer tain statistics of the eountrj'. The Spanish population is 11.000,000. The army numbers 160,000 men, the light rcgi.uents armed with Miuie rifles, and the artilery being one of the finest in th world. The navy is as follows: Two line oi oatiie snips, nu guns; 4steam frigates, 141: 1 steam brig, 2 pivot guns; 8 steam schooners, 16 pivot guns; 5 frigates., 183 guns; 2 corvettes, 54 guns; 19 brigs, 156guus; 5 schooners, 11 guns; 3 side-wheel steamers, 68 guns; 29 ditto, 168, guns, and nine store ships, 28 guns; besides gun-boats and the usual small craft belonging to a large fleet. Th foreign commerce of Spain amounted in 1855 to $114, 156,240. Her commerce with the United States for the year 1851 amounted to over seventy-nine millions of dollars, greater than that of France with us. I Statement by General Calhoun. l asihxgton City, Feb. 17, 1858. To the Editor of the Union : Sir : 1 have already commuuicated to the Committee on Territories in the Senate a fall statement of facts connected with the applica tidb of Kansas for admission into the Union as 'State. I need not repeat those "facts in this jjperas they will doubtless reach the public itf n few da vs. It is with reluctance that I refer to matters pertaining solely to the local politics of the Territory in which I live, and w;ith which, to some extent, I have been con nected; ; but the various and contradictory statements that have been made by unscru pulous and irresponsible letter-writers to the public pres, touching the discharge of my duties as president of the constitutional con vention, make the duty imperative. Excitement, conflict, and great confusion must nff.;s;irilv attend the organization of .- j government for a community brought together from all parts of the world, and actuated by different objects, motives, and prejudices. No Territory ever organized in the United States has suffered more from causes of this character than Kansas. The conflict about the shaping of our institutions, so constantly directed by persons and parties outside of the Territory, has forced within its limits a class of popula tion from every portion of the Union, most dissimilar iu character and with the strongest predisposition to collision. That disorder and eon fusion, the violation of individual and pub lie Wghis and duties, should Tesult from such causes, may be deplored, but couid not be pre vented Good men have sought the peaceful remedy to these controversies in the ballot-box. Bad men have leeH governed by no scruples as to' public or private action. In the periodical addresses put forth by the law-and-order or democratic party of Kansas every foreign in fluence has been repudiated, and every effort made to procure for Kansas the quiet, peace ful settlement of all cpustious of public policy by the fair and honest expression of the popular will. To the fullest exteut these recommeuda- ; tioi.s have not probably prevailed with their own party friends, who, in opposition to a party knowing and respecting no law, may have been driven to the extremity of wrong and the viola tion of public right and duty. But it is not my object to go into a full examination of this subjeet. My object now is to place myself right before the public on the subject of the election returns for members of the legislature in Leavenworth county, the statements iu reference to which have been so conflicting and contradictor'. . On the 13th of January, the day before I opened the returns of the Kansas elections for and under the constitution, I was called upon by several gentlemen from Lawrence, headed by Doctor or Governor Robinson, and asked if 1 would be governed, iu determining the result of the election in Leavenworth county, by the sworn statement of one of the judges of election at the precinct known as the " Delaware Crossing. " I replied, no ! That I couid not, and would not, go behind the election returns, it was then stated that the question was as to the legality of returns, and fraud was charged, on wha: information 1 did not learn, upon the ground that; the returns sent to me were not the true returns as approved and signed by the judges of election. To give the full op portunity of submitting testimony as to the legality of the returns, I toid the gentlemen that, as the legislature would have no duties to perform until after the decision of the question of admission, then; could be no necessity for the immediate issunng oTcertincaTesncnr tiexr- tion m that or any other case, ifud that the difficulty which they suggested couid, iu the mean time, be fully investigated. This statement I made the next day in the presence of the gentlemen who were present at the opening of the returns. 1 also authorized Gov Denver to state that if the judges of election wouhl furnish me, under oath, a state ment that the return made was false and fradu lent, I would treat such statement as a cor rected return, and be governed by it in giving certificates of election. I knew nothing of the Delaware Crossing returns, only that public rumor had given to the democratic party a ma jority at that precinct of some three or four hundred. I supposed the returns from that precinct were in my office, and was undeceived only when all the returns were opened and they were not found. 1 hese returns were ot great importance, as they determined not only the political complexion of Leavenworth county, but of both branches of the legislature. As they stood at the opening of the returns, with out the Delaware Crossing vote, the republi cans had a majority iu Leavenworth county, and consequently, a majority of both branches of the legislature. In order to ascertain the truth, I sent a mes senger to that precinct to see the judges of election and learn the facts as to. the charge of fraud -in the return lu the mean time, the sealed returns from that precinct were put into my hands by Mr. Diefeudoit, one of the com missioners for Leavenworth county, and on the same day that the messenger returned from Delaware Crossing precinct. I received the returns and the messenger's report at Weston, Missouri, on tiie 21st. day of January. The messenger brought to me the following sworn statement of the judges and clerks of the pre cinct iu question : Tekri.okv .of Kansas, ) County of Leavenworth. j The undersigned, judges and clerks of the election held for State officers and members - of the Statelegislature, held at the precinct known as Delaware Agency, on the 4th day of January, A. D. 1858, do hereby certify that the returns made by us of said election were correct and genuine, and that any statement made by any person as to ihe vole of said precinct can only be determined, as to its truth or falsity, by u reierence to said returns made by us as mana gers and clerks of said election at said precinct. r ks oi s.uu eiecuou at saiu JOXDA Y, ) )UE F.

Sworn to and subscribed before me this the eighteenth day of January, 1858. SAMUEL M.SALTERS. J. P. These depositions impressed my mind fully that the returns placed that day in my hands were true. I entertained no particle of doubt about the result, when, in 'die presence of Colonel Starks and others, I opened the re turns and found a majority of 319 votes for the democratic party. I concluded, as a matter of course, that the depositions of the judges and clerks were made with a full knowledge of the contents of the returns, then for the first time in my possession. The returns, together with the depositions of the judges and clerks, I sent to my office at Lecompton, by Mr. Brooks, one of the clerks in the surveyor-general's office. I am informed, in a letter from Mr. Brooks, that he placed them in the hands of General Maclean. the chief clerk in the surveyor-general's office, on the 27th day of 'January. It once said to my friends, and others who ap proached me on the subjeet, that the democratic party had a majority in the legislature, and authorized the publication of such a statement. I came to Washington with no particle of doubt on my mind as to the result. On the Saturday night after my arrival in Washington, I called to nav mv respects to an old friend, Jude Douglas, and before leaving he placed in my hands a paper he had just received from Kansas. The paper contained what purported to be the depositions of the judges of election for the precinct of Delaware Crossing; and in winch the judges de iosed that there were but f'riy three vote? polled at that precinct. I could not act, or form my opinion upon a newspaper pub lication; but I immediately informed my friends that if the statement so made should prove true, they must inevitably control my action. I have received and opened a return from the Dela ware Crossing precinct, which gives to the democratic party a majority of 319 votes, and would thus secure a majority to the democratic legislative ticket of Leavenworth county, and a majority on joint ballot in the legislature, under the constitution. If the judges of elec tion at that precinct furnish to me. as I inform- ed Gov. Denver before leavinir Kansas, a re liable and sworn statement that but forty-three votes were polled there, I should make myself a party to the fraud if I declined to be governed by the oaths of ihe judges. It is a question going to the legality of the returns. Of that I may judge and determine. I shall do so; and, in my determination, I shall be governed by u'.stice and trutn and the niriir. Jt it Fhai'. as it probably will, place the government of the State of Kansas in the hands of my enemies, no one will regret it more; but yet no one, not even a black republican, could perform the duty with more of the consciousness ot right than I shall feel in the honest discharge of my official duties. I have written to Gov. Denver to pro cure the sworn statements of the judges of this controverted precinct and to have them taken and unbiassed exhibition of facts. By the sworn statements,, so procured, I shall be governed in giving the cert ificates of election to the members of the legislature from Leaven worth county J. CALHOUN. From the Raleigh Standard. Governor Rencher. We have received t he-Santa Fe Gazelle of the 12th December, containing the fiirst mes sage of Governor Rencher to the Legislature dt New Mexico. This document, like every thing which emanates from Gov Rencher's pen is characterized by clearness and ability; and the suggestions and recommendations made therein appear to be well suited to the con dition of ihe people of the Territory. The Governor presents in a few words the correct idea of our federal form of government, and then proceeds to consider the vast undeveloped resources of the Territory, and to suggest the best means for bringing out these resources. We are pleased also to observe that he refers to the importance of public instruction and recotrends common schools for the masses. On this subject he sayes: "But I should do great injustice to this interesting occasion if 1 failed to bring to your favorable notice the great cause of education. 2s ot simply the edu cation of the rich, by the endowment of col leges; bat education of the masses by common schools. In a government like ours, depend ing essentially, as it "does, upon public opinion it is all important that public opinion should be enlightened. Public schools, therefore for the education of those who are not able to edu cate themselves, ought to be the first duty of every statesman and patriot. While rt is the best means of promoting every other improve ment in the State, it is the only sure means of preserving our free institutions, and of trans mitting them unimpaired to our ostcrity." . These are noble and enlightened sentiments, every way worthy of the man and of the State of which he is a native. A correspondent of the Washington Union writes as follows from Saute Fe : " Gov. Rencher stems so far to give entire satisfaction to all parties Indeed, that must be an unreasonable people whom he will not please, for a nobler old Roman I never knew His message is an excellent document, and shows a full appreciation of the necessities and capacities of the Territory. I fear there is little likelihood of its recommendation in regard to raising a revenue being effected. Like all com munities as this is, taxation is a bugbear which affrights all who contemplate it. In private, members of all parties admit its necessity, yet they have a mental determination uot to attempt it themselves, however glad they would be to see their opponents undertake it. No party has ever had the moral courage to attempt it, and the territorial bonds though a ridicnrously small amount, are not worth 30 percent. And, an ad zalortm assessment f one mill on the dollar would extinguish them, and establish the credit f the Territory. Speaking of the governor reminds me that he is ably seconded by his accomplished and amia ble wife. Polished, yet unassuming and char ming in conversation, 6he at once conciliates the good will of the most intractable." Fashionable Women. "Read the biogra phies, of oar great and good men and women," says an exchange ; "not one of them bad a fashionable mother. They nearly all sprung from plain, strong minded women, who had aboutas little to do with fashions as with 'the changing cloulds." - - SH1KE8FE1KE. It has been said that no man ever did so mach to excite curiosity, or so little to gratify it as Shakespeare. We believe this to be true. No man except Napoleou, ever was so much- writ ten about, or ever gave occasion to -the publi cation of so much downright nonsense. We have been told that he was indifferent to fame because he says nothing about himself in his. plays, as if it were possible to lug in himself in Ins dialogue that he wrote for money, as if all authors do not do the same that he had no education, as if the evidences of a highly culti vated mind were not ' strewed more thickly througout his works, than through any other productions of the human mind. The proof that he cared nothing about post humous fame is made to consist iu his not pub lishing his plays before his death. Now men who talk in this way seem to have overlooked entirely the preface of Hemingaud CondelJ, the players who published the first edition of his works, seven years after his death They say,, in their quaint Elizabethan style "It has bene a thing, we confesse, worthie to have bene wish ed, that the author himselfe had lived to have to get forth and overseen his own writiugs." 7'uere is the whole secret at once. The author died before he could publish his works, and that is the reason he did not "oversee and set them forth." It is probable as well he did not, for the omission has given rise to many volumes of delicious nonesense. The errors and obscuri ties in Shakespeare are innumerable. They are exactly such as are made every day, in every priuting. office in the countr', and such as would make obscure the most luminous work in the world were they not corrected by compe tent proof readers. We have no doubt the publication of Collier gave the true key to the greater part of them. It is really, however, very strange that noth ing is known of Sikespcare personally and that we and scarcely any mention ot turn in contem peraueoas publications. -Perhaps after all, he was "nobody at all" like Junius. We believe that somebody has undertaken to prove that. wr II lirt l .. .1 .l i 1 en, naieiy proeu mat mere never was such a man,as Napoleon. Richmond JVhii Beci:-icns of the Supreme Court Pearson, J.
