Iu tbo whole history of the public affairs of the States of tho American Union, there never appeared a body of legislators on the stage, who have earned such unenviable fame. as tht?e The present legislature of Pennsylvania are bid enough in all conscience, being notoriously en gaged nearly altogether in buying and felling in the dischage of the trust confided to them, giving out bank charter: to irresponsible in dividuals, snd enacting any and all sorts of special legisla fen at the demand of any and all persons willing to pay for having their in terest. rubeerved at the expense of the people at large. The Boston J'ott gives very amus ing accounts of the entire management cf the Massachusetts Legislature by the outside agents fo prccu e just such lcg; slatim, until the amount of cash ->.nd the dinners and wines requisite to gel a wharf privilege a bridge privilege, or a joint stock charter for this cr that purpose, is new as freely quoted on change in Bo ten, as th<i prices of railroad and established bank stccks A3 bad as all this is the ut:er want of -'hamster presented by the great mass of the members cf both of the M-.ssachusefs Legislature in other par ticulars it, if po'sib'e, w-^rsc. Though their present session has baeu a remarkably long one, they have accomplished literally nothing but the enactment of special legislation; thus bough- through, except the recent passage of a law making it a crime in their St?.to to e.<e cute the Fugitive Slave law. the establishment of the infamous committee on nunneiies, and the subsequent expulsion of the great projec tor of ihat Cvmm.ttee. Mr Joseph Hiss We need net commen* on the history cf the doings 0 that committee; as hiving b*en fully brought io light tbey tell the tale cot only of the infamous purpose of it? origin but of the fidelity with which the men rf bad hearts and grovelling minds, or which it w .s composed, carrie I ru; that purpose to tbo best cf their ability, and to the eternal shame of the State of Massachusetts. In the ca-e of Mr iliss the reports show that it was first intended to screen him Whoa the intensity of public opinion even there and his own recklessness, rendered it impossible to carry out that in tention, tea next move of the majority was to make hiui the scaj egoat of the body. To this Le demurred, boldly proclaiming that if he hEd proved himself a hypocrite, a debauche. and an ingrain scoundrel, he w.? L-y no means the only one of the body who had -o unworthily crept into tbo confidence of the people, and that he stood ready to prove that at least one hundred and eighty of hie fellow members, including m re cr less of the seventy clergy, men, were in each and every respect quite a? unworhy. cf public confidence, and as infa mous iu their personal characters ss himself ? There-poo, to put a gag oa his mouth, he was immediately (zpelled, so as to plice it beyond his power to spread before the world the pr.of of the truth of Lis as ertion They were true to themselves in that acticn only, having be trayed traces of their guilt in the vacillating course or their legislation on Lis ease. It will be reme be red that there are actually seventy c'erg}iiien at present in thit body?seventy clergyman ! lias the presence of so many per son.- nominally dedicated to the cause cf the ever living God?to the cause ol pcaca and good will t^all?to the cause of good morals and equil and exact justice, elevated the char acter of the tody 1 We say that it has not, but that the conduct of thai Legislature tells the tale of ths impropriety cf the interference cf cleTgyn-en in politics, iu terms stronger than ean be otherwise communicated by the most iloquent pen Does tho history of that Legislature bear cut the proai.o of sweeping reform in all thirg* to be acted on by it, on wbioh it was elected *;'u so great unanimity, the people of Massachusetts having suddenly taken it into iheir heads that their former Whig legislators, who had so long controlled their State mat. ter? were incompetent ? If ever a people were taught a practical leseon worth treasur ing in their memories, that lesson Is to be drawn from the history of the action of the b-4y ot hypocrites. Uols scoundrels, bigots aLd incompetents through ignorance, who hav^ irar.aged by a sweeping imposture to ob tain tue temporary control of the affairs of the once proud, respectable, and enlightened com monwealth of Massachusetts.

OWE Win LATER FROM EUROPE Arrival of the Steamer Baltic. IMFOliTANT FROM SEHASTOPOL. Attempt to Aaaaaiaate Nspaleon, ftc The Steamer Baltic arrived at New York yesterday evening, between five and six o'clook with Live pool dates to May 5th?one week later than previous dates. FROM THE CRIMEA Tho latest dates from Sebastopol are to the 4th inss., one day preceding the sailing of the steamer, received per telegraph. The allies were gaining ground, all the Rassian ont works having been taken Sanguinary en oo inters were frequent, and the loss on both sides was immense. There was nothing, however, in the seige jet to warrant an assault, and the bombard* mon* had maoh slackened, not having pro duced tho result anticipated. Indeed, the po sition of the allies was regarded as critical, notwithstanding the advantage! they had gained. Lord Raglan admits that th* bombardment of Sebastopol had net produced the result looked for. The list of casualties to the allies wa3 not heavy. The general impression ia England is that the siege will be abandoned for the present, and the whole of Ramiescb and Balaklava left to the defence of a few corps, while the main position of the allies try to penetrate the in terior and cut off the supplies of Sebaatopel and then oompletely invest the town. Numerous reinforcements were constantly reaching the allies, and the French reserve of SO,000 men, near Constantinople, were expect ed to be sent to Balaklava. Russian official accounts to the24th alt. rep resent the damages sustained aa bat of little account, and all were actively repaired, while the skirmishes were generally successful. The loss sustained by the garrison from the 11th to the 13th alt was 7 subalterns, and 436 men killed; 6 superior, 34 subaltern officers, and 1,809 men wounded. The English captured the first Russian rifle pit on the night of the 17th, after a desperate encounter. Col. Graham Egerton, the field officer, in command, was killed. On the 20th, an attack was made on the sooond Russian rifle pit, which was almost im mediately abandoned. ENGLAND. Dispatches for the Crimea we*e reaching the British Government in a lew hours by tele graph, tut their purport was not generally communicated to the public, although nightly questions were asked in Parliament for infor mation. The ministers declared that thev should exeroise due discretion in the public*, tion of the news Lord John Russell had reappeared in his seat in Parliament, and stated the substance of the negotiations at Vienna, intimating that protocols wonld he submitted to parliament The new loan bill of ?16,000,000 sterling, passed on the 1st in the House of Commons, and on the same night was ordered to be com mitted in the House of Lords. . Metals in the English markets have expe rienced a great decline, owing to tho dimin ished demand for iron from the United States. Sir John Burgoyne, as a witness before the Roebuck committee, gave important evidence in relation to the eonduct of the war on the Crimea. The budget ha? virtually parsed both houses with but little opposition or modification. Throughout the country a strong feeling against the ministry has been manifested by indignation meetings regarding the condoct of the war, held at various places. A meet ing of the Inhabitants of London was to be held, at whioh an administrative reform asso ciation was proposed to bo organised. Similar meetings were promoted by tho principal men of all political partie , and would be held at Liverpool and other towns. FRANCE. The Emperor of the French had a narrow escape from assassination on the evening of the 2$th ult., while on bis way to join the Em press in her usual ride in the Champs Elysees. ihe Emperer was accompanied by two officers or )bis household, and when near Barriene de 1 ttoile he was approached by a well dressed man with the action intimating a desire to rroscnt a petition. He advanced within fivs or six paces of tho Emperor, who did not ob. serve him, when he was discovered by a po liceman. r As the policeman was proceeding towards the man. a cab was driven rapidly between them; and in the interval, the individual drew a double barreled pistol, and aiming it point-blank at the Emperor, discharged both barrels without effect. Immediately he was seiied by the police, but not until he had drawn another pis ol and made a second tt tempt to shoot. It is said that one of the balls graxed the Emperor s hat. The would-be-assassin is an Italian named Pianosi. He was a volunteer in Girabaldi's army ; and he was in London while the Emperor waj? making his visit. He would have made the attempt on the life of the Emperor if he had not been prevented by the concourse of people. The Emperor proceeded with his ride, and visited the opera in the evening, where he wag greeted with immense outbursts of loyalty and enthusiasm. The Emperor decided not to receive the for mal addresses of congratulation on his esoape, though an exception was made in regard to the British residents in Paris The corporation of Londcn has also prepared an address of congratulation. Pianoii was in close confinement and would be tried about the middle of May. , Th?Fusionist and Orleanist papers publish the official accouns from theMoniteur without a word of comment. The oause of the attempt is understood to be personal revenge, and nothing of a political nature. r THE LATEST. Dispatohes per telegraph, from the Crimea, report a sharp engagement on the night of the lit or May, in a rrout and left attack, which ended in the whole of the Russian riflepiti be ing taken, together with eight light mortars and two hundred prisoners. The whole af fair was a brilliant one for the allies Sbbastoi-ol, May 4th?On Wednesday *nght (2d io3w.,) the Frenoh troops under Gen Pelissler attacked the advanced works of the quarantine bastion and carried them at the point of the bayonet, taking twelve mortan ana establishing themselves in the positions. On the following night the Russians made a sortie to regain the positions, but after a san guinary encounter were driven back. An insurrection in Ukraine, Russia-Poland, had broken out and extended to three other governments. Twenty landed proprietors with their wives and families have been des troyed. The following is gathered from the latest papers in addition to the above: Theeondition of the allies is deeidedly more oritioal than that of the enemy. Fifty thousand Russian reinforoements had arrived at Sebastopol. The allies thus far bad not destroyed a single Rusiian battery. Six thousand Tnrks had been sent to join Omer Pasha, at Balaklava. "RUSSIA. Appearances at St. Petersburg denoted great activity, and an energetic continuance of war The Ciar dsvotes his whole time to militarv preparations ' The peasantry ot the Russian province of Ukraine hau risen in insurrection. TURKEY AND RUSSIA. It was rumorod that a separate treaty would be signed between Turkey and Russia, formin* part of a European treaty of peace.
