Natcral Compass.?It is a well-known fact that in the vast prairies of Texas a little plant is always to be found which, nnder all circumstances of rlirnate. change of weather, rain, frost, or sunshine. invariably turns its leaves and flowers to tbe north. If a solitary traveler were making his trav across those trackless wilds, without a star to guide or compnss to direct hnn, he finds an uner> ring monitor In an humble plant, and be follows its guidance, certain that it will not mislead hiin. Drowxkd Withoct Sinkisu.?A singular death occurred at Cairo on Wednesday, whfch is without a parallel. A gentleman who was a cabin passenger on the steamer Platte Valley, fell overboard. The life boat was immediately sent after him. and he was picked up after floating some distance, but was found tojbe dead. He may possibly have been stricken with appoplexy, causing him to fall overboard, but tbe prevailing opinion is that he drowned without sinking, or at least without sinking very far. as he went under one or two times, but only for a few seconds,?Louisville Courier, 19rA. From California ?San Francisco dates to the 3<th of January have been received at New Orleans. The telegraph line was completed as far as Fresno. 160 miles from San Francisco, on the Butterfield mail route. Rich surface diggings had been discovered near Georgetown.

TnsJon.N Priim n Committer?The Senate Committer heard the testimony of Augustus Wattles. on Monday, and Hyatt, of \ Y , was reported as refusing to appear, which is a case of contempt Mr. Wattles's testimony showed the activity of Brown in running off eleven slaves from Missouri, as he said, ' without tiring a gun or snapping a cap*" Said Wattles: He was then told that another company went to another place and brought away four, and in do.ng so. had killed one man to save their own lives. Brow?; replied tb?t he -regretted it exceedinglyj but.' he continued, 4I have considered the matter well?you will have no more inroads from Missouri, the poor people of Kansas hive suffered enough; my heart bleeds for them; I now see it to be my duty to draw the seme of tke excitement to .*t>me other pa^t of th? country; you may never see one again hareweil?God bless you ' And he departed " 1 hi* hist allusion, no doubt, had reference to his Intended raid upon Virginia. Wattles being sick. Brown called to see him, when V\ expressed regret that he had been into Missouri and taken wives, and especially condemned the killing ot Cruise. Brown replied thnt he was stopping at a house on the Little Osage when the ni-n went down to Fort Scott to liberate Ben Rice. Personal. - Hon. W. W.

Thk Socthkbx Coxviktior PiorontioR ?The observations we were able to make in the course of a few day s sojourn in Richmond, Va., la* week, led to the conclusion that there is no pro* pect whatever that the Virginia legislature will comply with the request oi the legislatures of South Carolina and Mississippi, that she {Vlr ginia) shall send delegates to a convention of the Southern States, to devise measures against the Increasing encroachments of the North upon the ?f thI ,lav*-holding State* under the Const. tution. The opposition party of the body is understood to be against the proposition, to a man; while so far, a majority of the democracy of the body is also against it, preferring the recommendation of Mr. James Barbour, in favor of separate State action, by pasaing laws tending to repress and discourage commerce with the North and as a consequence, to bring about the speedv Increase of manufacturing of all deLriptlons throughout the South. An effort was made to talk the recent Virginia Democratic State convention into resolving that the democracy of the Old Dominion approve the Memrainger (South Carolina) scheme; but the old birds of that body were not to be caught with chaff; and having set their faces against it, the movers beat a retreat?covering up their defeat under flaming resolutions to the same end,passed by a mass meeting after the convention adjourned Whether so intended or not, it was understood in Richmond that the proposed convention looked to dissolution. Virginia wants no such remedy for existing disabilities; nor is she willing to commit herself to anything of the sort under the lead of a convention or organization, for the existence of which there is no warrant of law. and the action of which must necessarily tend to strengthen the disunion sentiment of the South, ere other remedies for the current state of things shall have been tried in vain. The plan of Mr. Barbour (which is being s-verely denounced throughout the South by all there famous for going off half-cocked) looks to SQutbern commercial and manufacturing Independence in as short time as possible, and to temporary sacrifices of money, luxuries, comforts, and some necessaries of life, on the part of. indil vid.ial citizens of the South, to achieve that Independence. Hence its unpopularity with so many windy '-dear people's" men. Nevertheless, it will bear the test of the severest scrutiny. That is to say, reflection upon it will sitisfy persons of common sense, who are looking only to cure the evils of abolitionism, that, energetically pursued, it will accomplish that end, and at the same time in many.other wayseventuateln great benefit to the South?diversifying her industry and developing her mining, manufacturing, and mechanical resources as though by magic, and to the immense pecuniary advantage of all classes of her citizens. We have no hesitation in preferring it a thousand times over to any convention of politicians without legal constituencies, two thirds of whom will be avowedly or secretly in favor of disunion for disunion's sake. When the South may be able to supply her own absolute wants in the way of manufactures, Ac., she may- snap her fingers at abolitionism; for she J will have starved it out in becoming thus independent. ? j The Lkvkb Last Night.?The fourth public reception of the season at the Executive Mansion last evening, was very numerously attended by all classes of citizens. In the absence of Marshal Selden, Deputy Marshal Pnillips oftVnated at the side of the President, and Dr. Blake near Miss Lane, while Capt. Goddard, Chief of Police, and his aids, exercised general supervision over the ! thronging crowd. Among the persons of distinction present, besides those officially congregated at the metropolis. arid consequently frequent habitues of tb*- Levees, we noticed the Hon. Mr. Reed, late V. S. I Minister to China. Mrs. Judge Roosevelt, of N. York, who is now the guest of Miss Lane, at the \Y bite House, remained near that ladydurfn? the evening, and received the cordial salutations of many of her old friends. Mrs. Siidell was also present, in company witti senator rsiidell and, us usual, held a levee as it were of her own large circle of friends. Mrs. Senator Yulee was also present, and was one of the most promlI nent among the ladies for matronly beauty and intelligence. Senator Mason brought with him several of Virginia's fairest daughters, and the Hon. Williamson R. W. Cobb was followed bv a bevy of Alabama beauties, while the Hon. Tbos R tiffin and the Hon L O B Branch, of North Carolina, were accompanied by two of the most beautiful and accomplished ladies present. Fi*e Ti.mb.-Mr. Charles O.

Pm??dii|i mt TatUrday ifUnm. ? lit the ssnatr, yesterday, Mr. Mason from the Harper's Ferry Investigating Committee, reported a resolution that the President of the Senate issue a warrant for Thaddeus Hyatt. who had refused to appear before the Committee on its summons. Mr. Hale would not object to the consideration of the resolution. When a similar one was reported the other day, he had been found in the small minority of four, yet he thought then and stiil thought that it was a very dangerous precedent, regarding it a most gigantic stretch of Sower on the part of the Senate, calculated to strike own all the barriers thrown around the rights of the States. * Mr. Pugh had roted for the former report but on considering the question more closely be ha<{ come to the conclusion that the Senaie' had no power to compel the attendance of witnesses beyond tbe District of Columbia. ** Mr. Collamer defended the report, claiming that the Senate had power to compel the attendance of witnesses where the testimony was necessary to subeerve the public business.

That the select committee to whom was referred the subject of the printing expenditures^ the House of Representatives hand over to the Committee on Public Expenditures the books and papers, and such evidence as they may have taken relating, to said subject, and be discharged from the further consideration thereof. After some discussion the resolut.cn wes agreed to?ayes 92, noes *29. b The election of printer was postponed until Thursday. * The House resolved itself into Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, (Mr. Wasbburne of 111., in the chair.) and resumed the consideration of the President's annual message. Mr. Lamar, of Miss , proceeded to address the committee. Mr Davis, of Md., next addressed the Commit tee. The Legislature of Maryland, he said, had decorated him with its censure, and it was his purpose toacknowleduethat compliment It was long since the party which now controlled and gave character to the Legislature had before been so fortunate as to have a majority in both branches, and it had now so conducted itself that it would probably be long ere it would be so fortunate again. As regarded the vote of* censure passed upon him. he would say he knew his constituency and the people of Maryland better than these dabblers in eternal agitation; and be said that, right or wrong, wise or unwise, this day the vote begave for .Mr. Pennington was not only approved, but honored and applauded by every man whose opinion he regarded. [Applause ] And he would be willing to meet his people upon any explanation of that vote, in the face of the whole body of that Legislature, bonded and banded into one man. What were the circumstances of this election"' He had no apologies to make or excuses to ofter. What he did he did in his judgment, and did not look across his shoulder at his constituents to see what they would say. He told his constituents before the election that he would come here a freeman or not at all He told them that if they wanted slaves to repiesent them they could get a plenty, but he was not one. He foresaw then exactly wh?.t has happened?that tbe time might come when be would be obliged again to take an independent stand, unsupported breast high by men of like sentiments, and he wanted his people to know it, so that if they preferred a representative who would bend like a willow when the storm came they could choost' material suited to tbeir work. But they had preferred to send him, and he bad done what he knew they would approve. without any apologetic stitementor explanation. That approval was not a reason for but a consideration after the doing. The gentlemen of the Legislature did not know so much about the gentleman who was elected Speaker as he and his constituents knew Th-y charged him with being f;ilse to the South in not voting for Mr Smith, of Nortn Carolina. That showed the rapidity and certainty of the transmismission of news to Annapolis, and the vigilance with which those honorable gentlemen made themselves acquainted with ait<ilrs upon which to It was not to be supdo-s' u that those pcutlcuiru coulU iHt-lltifv nil Pennington with Governor Pennington, whose broad seal this same Democratic party had disregarded in this Congress when they usurped the inauguration of the House. Tbat disregard of the prima fncxe evidence of the legal right of members they did not know?but he and bis constituents knew?had now been properly punched They dia not know that Mr. Pennington held high offices under Cien. Taylor and Miliard Fillmore, and that his appointment in both cas;-s was approved by the Senate of the United States They could not be supposed to know tbat he is a Whig in his principles, and in favor of th? enforcement of every law in which a Southern State is interested, and especially that law in which Maryland more than any other State has a practical interest?not a mere political one. The Legislature did not know, but his constituents did that Gov Pennington is opposed to this agitation] and hence was the very man to be placed in that chair as a signal of peace to the country. Mr. ^VlcPherson, of Pa., obtained the loor.when the Committee rose. Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, moved that when the House adjourn it he to meet on Thursday nextwhich was agreed to. At ten minutes past fire o'clock tke House adjourned. russian war illustrations at thk ODD FELLOWS' HALL, TO-NIGHT! (fe22) TO NIGHT! THE THEATRE! THK THEATRE ! THE THK.ATRE !
