According to a telegraphic dispatch from Washington, which appeared in yesterday's Evening Picayune, the Nebraska bill, divested of the Clayton amendment, passed the House of Representatives, late on Tuesday evening, by a vote of 113 yeas to 100 nays. Twenty members were reported absent. As the long agony is over we trust Congress will attend to the legitimate business of the country, which has been grossly neglected for months in consequence of this impracticable measure. Its passage can do the South no good -- the North no harm. Now that a correct, yet absolutely barren principle, has been needlessly re-affirmed, we trust agitation will cease. If Abolitionists will rave, let them rave unheeded. They will soon exhaust themselves if unnoticed by the Southern press and Southern statesmen.
