Shall tbe Feople of Kansas Perish! [For The Press.} This is the question wbieh the providence of the hour asks of the American people. From forty to fifty thousand of our follow-oitizens are to-day in a state of fearful destitution. The entire harvest if toe first year has failed. With no accumulated capital or _resonrces, resulting from the oareful industry and savings of generations, this calamity brings absolute desolation and utter want upon the poor pioneers of the youngest State In our American Confederacy. For months their touching appeal has been urged upon the twenty millions of tbe free States. They have asked, and they still ask, from the ample stores of their brethren, the bare necessities of living, till the harvest of 1861 shall again supply their wants. They seed 500,000 bushels of grain for food, whiob would be barely ten bushels to each person for aa many months —a bushel a month to each. They seed wheat, corn, potatoes, and other seed, to plant 800 000 acres of...

_WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE. Letter from ** Occasional. " [Correspondence of The _Pren._1 Washwgtoic, February 7,1881. Senator Johnson concluded bis two-days' speeoh last evening. He will be replied to by Gen. Joe Lane and Senator WJgfall, and possibly the young Vise President may deem it _neaesaary to open the lips which have been so hermetically sealed since the beginning of our troubles. Complaint is made in certain quarters that Senator Johnson should have made his speeoh in the absecoe of those to whose farewell addresses he replied, but the objection is absurd and answers itself. There were those present, however, to whom he referred in terms quite as strong as he applied to the absent conspirators, and while he used severe langaago in reference to the latter, his denunciations of Senators Lane and Wigfall were equally scorching. He fired a broadside into all the conspirators, and 1 can assure you that when he sat down, it was evident that he had produced the greatest con...

Henry Ward Beecher at Concert Hall * Last Evening. Concert Hall was again filled last evening, with a Brilliant _andienoe, to hear a lecture by Rev. Henry Ward Beeeher, delivered before the People's Literary Institute. The hoar of _commeneiDg was stated to be 1_\ o'clock, at which time precisely Mr. B. appeared upon the platform. Mr. J. W. White, secretary of the " Institute,' ' before introducing the lecturer, made an explanation relative to the failure of Hon. N. P. Banks to lectors before them, as had been announced. Under the direction of the managers, he said, arrange_, menta had been made to supply this omission by engaging the Rev. Mr. Bellows. Mr- Beecner then came forward, and said that he should speak a leotore, aa advertised, on " Yea, Yea; Nay, «ay." He who knew how rightly to me these two _words_. had little to learn in duty and _aonosty. He believed nothing was so perverse as these two little words; one of them was continually taking the place of the other. Instead...

Push on the Column. Thorenghly sronsed by the fearful nature of too impending perils which threaten to destroy oar whole frame-work of government, and. to render inevitable one of two dread alternatives—an extensive civil war or disintegration, anarchy, and confusion worse confounded—the American people and many of their chosen Representatives are rapidly rising above the mere passing prejudices and partisan bickerings of the hour, and be coming impressed with the paramount importance of making a final and desperate effort to preserve the Union, even if a sacrifice of minor political considerations becomes necessary. In a storm • t sea it ia important to preserve the lives of all the passengers of a ship, and all the freight it carries, if possible; but when the winds howl fiercely round the trembling vessel, or when a leak is sprung, and she is in danger of sinking, the instinct of self-preservation will prompt those on board to heave into the angry ocean »H mere merchandise, t...

Operatic Singers. Brooklyn has undeniably gone ahead of New York, of which it is an integral part, in the line of Italian opera. Three-fourths of* the Brooklyn householders really are New Yorkers, doing business in « the metropolis,'3 (as they affect to call it,) but residing in the City of Churches. Brooklynites got tired of crossing the East river—particularly in such abominable ferry-steamers as ply thereon—- merely to go np to the Academy of Music , in Irving place, New York, and built a handsome opetra-honse of their own, not far from Henry Ward Beecher's place of Sunday entertain. m«nt. What is more, the Brooklyn operahouse is well filled, while its New York rival is empty. It is said that the receipts of the last performances amounted to $300 at New York, and $2,000 at Brooklyn. Moreover, there are two new female vocalists now performing. Signora Elena, an Italian, is one. Of her the competent musical critic of the New York Tribune _^ says : "In Lucrezia Borgia we have he...
