Tke Ctoestead LawATko are its Eaemieat Hon. Q. A. Grow, of Pennsylvania, made one of the best speeches ever de Hrered ia Congress, or out of it, in de fense of the policy of "Free Homes for Free men," on Wednesday of last vreek. It is a subject that he has carefully ex amined and one in which he has taken a deep interest for many years.

As an introduction to the discussion of the main proposition, he gives an historical sketch of our Public Land system, which shows a good deal of research, aud is at once interesting and valuable. From this sketch it appears that the Federal Government, by cessions from the original States, and by the purchase of Louisiana, Florida, California, New Mexico, and Utah, has acquired, exclu sive of water, 1,450,000,000 acres of public land. Of these, there have been sold 147,088,274 acres; while there have been granted and donated to individ nals, companies, corporations, and States, 241,770,052 acres. -This leaves undisposed of, and now in the possession of the National Government, one thousand and sixty-one one hundred and forty-one thousand six hundred and seventy-five acres, (1,061,141,675.) Mr. Grow then proceeds to show, which he does with a heartiness that shows that his whole soul is absorbed in it, that their vast domain could be dedicated to no more worthy object than in furnishing homes for the honest, rthard-working yeomanry of the country.

-And then states why this wise and hu mane policy has not long since become law. He says "Three times, within seven years, a bill has passed this House, and been defeated each time by the uemocrauc majority in me senate. On the vote on the homestead bill in the House, last Congress, out of" one hundred and thirty Democrats, but thirty-one voted for it; and in the Sen ate, on the test vote between taking up the homestead bill, after it had passed the House, and only required the vote of the Senate to make it a law, so far a Congress was concerned, or to take up the bill for the purchase of Cuba, but one Democrat voted lor the home stead, and only six at any time; while every Republican in the Senate, and every one in the House, with a single exception, was for the homestead. Of all the Representatives of the Slave States, but three in the House voted for it; and but two, at any time, in the So the Democratic party, as ra party, arrayed itself in opposition to this beneficient policy. The Republican party, on the other hand, is com mitted to this measure by its votes in Congress, by its resolves in State Con ventions, and by its devotion to the great central idea of its existence the rights and interests of free labor." Let the people, and especially the laboring masses, whose support the Sham.

Cassapolis, March 10th, 1860. The LnttE Dodger. Douglas has liit upon a new plan, whereby to make friends at the South. Some time since Mr. Lincoln'made a speech in Cincin nati, proving that the "small giant" was An enemy to the North.

The speech was a powerful one, and created serious apprehension in the minds of Mr. Douglas1 friends. But he, nothing 'daunted, set to work and had a large "number of copies, of the speech printed, which he franked to voters in the Southern States. content with ihis, he has followed them with 300,000 copies of bis Sedition Law Speech, in which the allegations of Lincoln are Admitted by Douglas himself. This is certainly a epth to which no other modern politician has stooped.

Statk Prisox at Michigan City. The Chicago Journal learns on good authority that the Commissioners appointed by the Legislature of Indiana 4 1 VS VI 1 1 JJUJV Vl new State Prison in the Northern part of the State, have determined to locate the institution at Michigan City, and the Governor hasapproVed the selection A pite comprising one hundred situated, has been.offered to the Cotrrjiooers for Douglas' Reply to No sooner had Gov. Seward pronounced the last word of his great and masterly speech in the Senate than the little demagogue from Illinois, smarting under the crushing and overwhelming exposure which the great orator had made of the acts and purposes of the pro-slavery Democracy, and especially of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, popped up and commenced one of his characteristic harangues in reply. It must have" been rude shock to the solemn stillness and emotion of that greit audience after such an effort as that to which they had just listened. But it was a time for Douglas to show his zeal to do service for the South by rudely and coarsly attacking the great champion of the North and of Freedom.

This pretended reply of Douglas to Gov. Seward is entirely characteristic of the man and recalls the occasion when in times past he has played the same part for Slavery by barking at Gov. Seward, Gov. Chase and Charles Sumner. He has now fully returned to his first works.

Gov. Seward never, in all his speech, spoke his name or alluded to him personally in any manner; but Douglas must needs his expec torate his vile slang upon him. It would be gross nonsense to dignify what he said by calling it an argument. Gov. Seward did wisely to pay no at tention to it, although Mr.

Trumbull could not resist the temptation to impale the little juggler alive on the hooks of his own logic, which he did most admirably. Nothing more is needed to show that Douglas is a traitor to the North and to liberty than his almost findish chuckle which he cast into Gov. Seward's face over the fact, as he claimed it, that the shoemakers of New England were starving in consequence of the withdrawal of Southern orders. He in this way fairly leered out his contempt for Northern labor and his sympathy for bouthern blavery. National Horse Association.
