FROM WASHINGTON LecomptonUe Troubles—Duelling—British Ship Letters—Sun' g Parallax. [Correspondence of The Press.J Washington, Feb. 21,1858. There is an unexpected, and it may be insurraountablp _^ difficulty to the speedy execution of the programme of _Senator _Gvefctt and the Le«6lnp~ tonites. It was their intention, and is still, so far a.i I can learn, to press the Lecompton Constitution through the Senate without the least delay, and then, that it shall bo as hurriedly rushed through the _IIouso. Unfortunately for them , howovor, there exists the widest difference of construction amongst the Leoomptonites in respeot to the power of tho people of Kansas to alter and amend their frame of State Government prior to 1864, the time which it prescribes. Some Northern Demf_^_rats, who have gone with them thus far, refuse to go _pnp _atej) farther, unlesa the people there 4re empowered by law, jn a manner admitting no contrariety of opinion, to throw off the incubus of a hateful...

PUBLIC _ENTERTAINMENTS With extreme regret, we notioe the withdrawal of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Davenport frem Arch-street Theatre. Thereby, Mr. Wheatley loses two of the best cards in his hand. It is said that they nre engaged for Boston. Without doubt, they occupy the foremost place, not only here, but in England, in the thentrioal world- Having rented WAlnutsrreet 1 heat re from Mrs. Bowers, on Wednesday evening, with the use of her company, Mr. and Mrs. Davenport will there take a farewell benefit; the performances being "Othello" and "The Serious family." A finer combination than Davenport's Othello and Conway'a Iago cannot be witnessed. This must be a bumper benefit, for tho parties are eminently entitled to it, having won golden opinions, in and out of the profession, while in this city. It will be extremely difficult to fill the void in the Arch-street company, made by tho secession of Mr. and Mrs. Davenport. We perceive that Mrs. Farren and Mr. Vezin are engaged. Wo do n...

On Thursday evening, at half-past five o'clock, while the convicts in the State Prison at Sing Sing, N. Y., were filing into the mess-room for supper, five of them made a rush for the river, which is frozen over, thinking to escape on the ice. They were pursued and fired upon by the guards, and all Drought back, when three were found to be wounded; John 8pence, tbe wellknown oompanion and pal of Mable Hodgeg_, _fcatf received five balls; Pete Devlin, sent up for receiving stolen goods, two balls, and Quinn, a Fourth ward burglar, got four bullets. The other two were not _injured. Spence and Quinn are badly hurt, and will probably die. A private letter from Berlin, "Wisconsin, dated Feb. 9, gives the following extraordinary low rates for produce in that place: • 'Wheat is selling at 40 centa par _bushel; oats, 17 <?eute per bushel; corn, 20 eents per _bushel ; potatoes, 12i cents per bushel; butter, 12i cents per pound; _eggH, 11 oents per dozen; white beans, 62i cents per b...

WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY. More than a century has elapsed since this Western Continent received the impress of that primal fact which was to make its memory sound through " the corridors of time.33 Inseparably as the name of Washr>"QT0N is connected with the very mention of America—looked up to over the whole world as a beacon of hope by patriots struggling, through long agony and despair, into the atmosphere of freedom—held as the synonym of chivalric courage anil martial dignity unsullied by the slightest stain of dishonor—it has kindled an enthusiasm of admiration for its glorious wearer which makes all eulogy trite and commonplace. As Mount Vernon has become " a Mecca of the mind " for the martyr-pilgrims who worship in the creed of devotion to the people' s liberty, so the anniversary of the birth of Washington has been marked as a white day in the annals of history. Commemorating the initial point in the political regeneration of a Continent, it was no unfitting or unw...

SHALL HIGHWAYS BE OWNED BY RAIL _WAVS ? The course of the Common Council at theii last meeting, in regard to the question of city railways, has excited our surprise and regret. We have always been the consistent advocattof the passenger railway, believing that its introduction, under proper restrictions, must meet ivith the approbation of nine-tenths of our cjtiz_?_us, Uttij at the same time _> irti arc yerj far from believing that there is any neces»ity whatever for the city parting with the entire control of certain highways to the sole use ol any railroad corporation, however great the advantages supposed to be conferred may be. We are always disposed to be chary of granting special privileges to any _organiutsd G6tnpanies, believing that true Democracy is hostile to all kinds of monopolies.

PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD. A. New York paper of yesterday contains an announcement, ¦which we copy, in order to correct its error: Show in Pennsylvania.— It is stated that the -mow storms in the eastern part of Pennsylvania have been so heavy as to cause considerable delay ! n the delivery of eastern freight at Pittsburgh. West Of Harrisburg the Pennsylvania Railroad is in many places completely barricaded by the snow, and the company are obliged to keep men constantly employed in removing the snow from the track. The simple fact is, that no detention, by snow or otherwise, has occurred on the Pennsylvania Railroad., now or at any tim e* This road and its Western connexions were never in better condition, or more fully prepared for a heavy Spring trade, (which is fully anticipated,) than at present, and parties sending goods by this route may be assured that no detention will occur.

Mr. Hofer wields a ready and spirited pen, and the announcement of his mounting the tripod and devoting his entire energies to its editorial department meets with a hearty welcome by his countrymen throughout the great North-West —Cleveland Plaindealer. Mr. Hofer is the same accomplished gentleman who labored so efficiently and spoke so eloquently for Buchanan and _Breckineidoe in 1856, by invitation of the Democratic State Central Committee. He made hosts of friends by his willing etforts in the good cause, and by his manly and modest deportment.
