Douglas purposes now to bring up the Nebraska bill forthwith, and to "cram it down," as one of his friends remarked. He or Cass will move an amendment repealing the Missouri restriction, absolutely. I also learn that the Rhode Island delegation in the House and Senate are sure against the bill on its final passage with its present features, with the possible exception of Gen. James. It is apprehended that several Northern Senators will be satisfied with a very strenuous opposition to the pro-Slavery provisions of the bill, but, after being voted down on those, will quietly vote for the bill on its final passage. Such at a least are the "givings out" by the leading friends of the measure.

Your correspondent is made to say in his last dispatch that Richardson of Ill. is opposed to Douglas's Nebraska bill. He intended to say that Richardson's Committee (the Territorial Committee) would not make a majority report in favor of the bill. Richardson is in favor of the bill, of course, but a majority of his Committee, at present, are not. As I understand it, the Chairman brought the matter before the Committee a day or two ago, but was able to obtain the sanction of but four of the nine members of the Committee.

The great and gallant compromiser Foote ofMississippi, got here to- day.
