Hon. O. A. Grow The course of this gentleman in Congress, has g iven very genera ] satisfaction to his constituents, and indeed to men of all parties, if we except a few Northern men with Southern principles. His vote and his voice against the passage of the Nebraska infamy were nobly and fearlessly given, and earned him the gratitude and respect of every friend of Freedom. At the approach of another election, it is proper to speak of our next representation in Congress. It was Socrates we think, who remarked to his pu¬ pils of one who was passing—" Behold an honest man and a faithful friend'." Upon being interrogated, he said—" You wonder that I speak so confidently—I will tell you why: I have proved bim." Now the freemen of Ibis District can say of Mr. Grow—" He is a true man—we have proved him." We cannot believe they will decide to drop him now, in the present important crisis of national affairs, to take up another, untried, it may be a convert of fear, and al the lost ...

Letters from Messrs., Darsie and Smyscr, corresponding in,sentiment with Mr. Pollock's have also been received : j J - Milton, June 19th 1854J, Gentlemen ;—Your letter of the 27ih ult'., with accompanying interrogatories has been received. To -your first question I reply; that, regarding the passage of the Nebraska Tiill as reckless and ill advised—as a wanton breach of National honor and plighted faith —and as an open and undisguised attempt to extend the institution of Slavery to territories now fiee, I am in .favor of ro-ennciing that portion of the Missouri Compromise which prohibits Slavery in the territories of Nebraska and Kansas. To your second question, I say that the reenactment of the provision referred to, would necessarily exclude sl...

Crime Jn ^ Califorifin. The Daily California Chronicle of ihe 14lh ult., says : " The ' violent deaths in this county (Son Francisco) average one per day. Within four years there have been twelve hundred. How many of ihem have been murders we do not know—probably one-fourth—perhnps only one-eighth—one hundred and fifty persons—murdered. Only one man has been eonmcted and executed for all this ocean of crime, and he, we sincerel y believe, nfoffr because he was a friendless creature, who had not the power to excite sympathy, nor money lo buy counsel or jury. So he was hung like a dog, hung probably, as he asserted with his d ying breath, For killing ihe man who attempted to rob him. This is & specimen of criminal justice." " Nearly all these who havo been accused of murdertfiave either been admitted ' to bail —straw be il at that—or allowed to slip thro' the fingers of the law by some other means a^ ite as effectual in encouraging crime and saving the criminal.

Marking Ciihinau.—An English writer once suggested the marking of criminals by dyeing the nose black by chemical process, and keeping itbjack until the expiration of their tferm of imprisonment In view of the prevailing brutility of woman whipping in London, a correspondent ot the Times some little time ago, suggested that the noses of womatlwhippers bo dyed black" also. This writer says, that under the most stringent laws, no less tban ten or twelve, eases occur weekly in. London; Undoubtedly tho nose blacking process would put an end to such brutality by transferring the villain mark from the heart to the nose. • Just now it occurs to ns,-that this mark ofdislinction might be bestowed with- good effect even in this country. Just imagine h' ow those men in coramuni. ty who leave their families to starve and freeze while they make beasts of themselves in some three cent groggery, would look with their nasal appendages clothed in mourning, every other day, for instance.

Extraordinary Counterfeit. Some months since lha Secretary of the Treasury gave ins tructions to Iho United States Mint to collect specimens of counterfeit coins in circulation, for the purpose of examination and report. Thw has led to the discovery of one of a very singular character. The Washington Union, which makes the affair public, states that the piece purports to ^ a Mexican dollar, coined at the city of Mexico in 1851. Two pieces have been assaved, and g ive an average fineness of 776 thousandths, and a consequent value of 91* cents in silver; bui, strange to say, the amount of gold contained in them is sufficient to add 12 cents to the. value of each, after, pay ing-ihe charge of separating, making a net value of 103i cents; and if to this the usual premium on silver is addedj the worth of this counterfeit coin is actually 109 cents-. The quality of the silver in these dq.lla.TS proves them to be a spurious issue. There is also an irregularity in the letters Mexicana, ...
