H 



(jy One oi the most important matters of pres- 
I ent disagreement between the Southern people 
I and a large portion of those in the ^k'orth is 
■ unquestionably the fugitive slave law. We think 
A there is no good reason why there cannot be an 
K amicable adjustment of this. The object which 
H the law is n/.ei.ded to accomplish, the actual 
restoration of actual slaves escaping into non- 
I^»Jt »levebolding States, is one which those States 
ha\e do right to oppose orresi-t. If the people 
h   ' of the free Stutes say that our slaves, escaping 
| to their soil, shall not be returned to us, they set 
the constitution and our rights under it at open 
defiance, and it is not worth while to reason 
with them or even to expostulate with them or 
attempt to comprom se with them. But, if our 
Northern brethren are willing that there should 
be provisions for the effectual restoration of real 
fugitives from slavery, and, if their whole ob- 
jection to the present fugitive slave law. as some 
of them allege, is, that it is unconstitutional in 
some of its features, that it is unnecessarily 
harsh, and that it puts in peril the liberty of 
freemen, and if they merely desire to change 
the law without impairing its bgitimate effec- 
tiveness, we do not believe there can be any in- 
superable obstacle to a fair and right adjust- 
ment 

We ki.u». Out iomo honest and enlightened 
patriots of the South think that the law might 
in .-ome things very properly have been made 
less offensive to the public sentiment of the 
North than it is. Two or three months after 
the close of the Congressional session during 
which this and the rest of the com- 
promise measures were adopted, we had 
, a long conversation upon the subject with 

Mr. Clay, on his return from Cuba, at the 
house of his relative Mr. Thomas Smith in this 
city. Upon that occasion Mr. Clay expressed 
much concern at the discontent of the North 
or. accrunt of the fugitive slave law and re- 
** marked, that, if he could have remained at 
Washington and acted upon the committee by 
which the bill was reported to the Senate, he 
could, he f dily believed, have caused it to be re- 
ported anti passed in a form far less offensive 
to the North and perhaps entirely satisfactory 
to both North and South, but that, after his de- 
parture for Boston on account of ill-health, an 
influential member of the committee, who was 
opposed to the whole system of compromise 
measures, proposed and carried provisions ap- 
parently designed to make it obnoxious. We 
asked Mr. ' Clay what he himself would hav e 
proposed if he had staid and acted on the com- 
mittee. He replied, that he would have pro- 
posed a provision that a person claimed as a 
fugitive slave should, on being remanded to the 
place whence he escaped, have a jury-trial 
there to test his right to freedom if he desired 
it. We suggested that the fugitive could have 
I this under the law as it passed. Yes, said Mr. 
Clay, but the people of the North suppose, and 
it is to a great extent true, that a negro, claimed 
and held as a slave, does not, as a general rule, 
understand his legal rights; that, either by his 
own ignorance or by his master's authority or 
management, he is prevented from taking 
* the necessary steps for obtaining legal re- 
 M dress; or that he is hurried off and sold 
it. some remote part of the country where 
proof of his right to freedom is out of the ques- 
tion; and I would have proposed that prov ision 
should be made in the law for the slave's being 
taken back to the very neighborhood whence he 
should be alleged to hav e escaped, and for ascer- 
taining whether he actually claimed a right to 
freedom, and, if he did claim it, for having the 
question of his right brought immediately before 
a jury of the vicinage without any actke agency 
of his own. And the old patriot added that 
many of the people of the North understood, 
and the rest could easily be made to understand, 
that the rights of a colored person would be in 
no danger from such a jury, there being nothing 
in the human shape that the people of the South 
more abhor than a kidnapper or a man who 
claims a free person as his slave. 

We could certainly wish that the present fu- 
gitive slave law, though no doubt fat from per- 
fect, might, for the sake of peace, be it alone, 
but we repeat, that, if the true men, the genu- 
ine patriots of the non-slaveholding States, en- 
tertain a sincere and honest conviction that the 
raw in some of its features is either unconstitu- 
tional or harsh and perilous to the freedom of 
free citizens or to the rights and the sovereignty 
of the free States, and if they desire to procure, 
in a proper spirit, modifications not at all incon- 
sistent with the prompt and effective accom- 
. plishment of the rights guaranteed to the South 
by the Constitution, we have little doubt that an 
'km amicable adjustment might be made, and that 
MP the Northern and Southern members of the great 
American party might, through their delegates, 
agree upon the terms. 

We had intended to speak, to-day, of 



be pleased t» hear f iom others upon the subject. ' 

(^"The following is a gush from such a 
fountain of poetry as dwells in the depths of 
but few human spirits: 

[Fur the Louiiville Bulletin. J 
THE MAIDEN'S INHERITANCE. 
Br bAH Gkauame. ' 
I know a dream, that is not quite all dream, 
Which jet fall sadly lies 
On my enchanted eyes. 
And trail* a sorrow o^er the day supreme. 

1 know a rich domain, on fertile ground. 
Begirt with granite lulls: 
And reined with fl •jhing rilli, 

Where high the laurel-forests wave around. 

There tnnny wilds unnumlxred blooms infold, 

With red .len. e of balm; 

And groves of Syrian jalm 
In rank luxuriance fleck the dreamy wold. 

Among the hills there yawns a wird seats. 

With i. : i alauting over, 

And knitted hemlock cover 
To mortal line and plummet measureless. 

Red poppies flaunt in that unholy place, 
And sunless «hadowa lie, 



heirs are born to one unhappy race. 



a dome that rests on pillars tall, 
With roof of gorgeous arch, 
As blue as hearen in March: 
With fretted gold and arabesque o er all. 



glancing chambers mildly trickles day. 
On pictures old and grand— 
The noblest in the land, 
imagery, that lines the way. 

A banquet stands untasted on the board. 
As guests were there to he— 
In lordly revelry— 

By human hand the wine haa not been poured. 

Dv human hand the c .ns.rs an- not fed— 
The censers nil of gold. 
And car»ed in antique mould, 
, like a violet bed. 



There have been t. roups in that ancestral palace, 
That live to-day in rhyme; 
But empty now. sublime, 

Thoae halls of silent song descend on Alice. 

Beware! a doom o'erhangs the arching grand, 
That nameless here must be; 
Alas, for one like thee 
: there without a warning hand. 



My lips arc sealed, as once iu Palestine 

Adrcaiful was set, 

By Him of Olivet, 
Who brAe the death where Jairus" child had been. 

Like thee, the olden throngs were fair and gay: 

But only one was true; 

How madly I may roe 
She lies beneath the sodden earth to-day. 

The deathly damp among her crow ning hair, 

Ti:e n:£ht upon l.er eyes— 

Her soul in Paradise: 
The genUest «oul that ever sli ded there. 

City Council. — The board of aldermen 
last night transacted no business. Communica- 
tions were received from Mr. Speed and Mr. 
Barbee. Mr. Speed, who holds the office of 
Mayor now, sent in his former message, and Mr. 
Barbee, in his communication, stated that he 
should take immediate steps to regain posses- 
sion of the office to which he was elected, by 
application to the Court of Appeals for a su- 
persedeas until the question can be finally settled 
by that tribunal. 

In the board of councihnen a variety of busi- 
ness was transacted. An ordinance was passed 
to endorse the bonds of the Fort Wayne rail- 
road to the f l'owing amounts and under the 
following •• ons: As soon as the road is 
ready to recei the iron between Jeffersonville 
and Charlestown, the city to endorse her bonds 
for $100,000; between Charlestown and Lexing- 
ton, the city to endorse her bonds to the amount 
of $124,000; from Lexingto to Paris, $100,000; 
and from Paris to the Ohio and Mississippi rail- 
road, $88,000; provided that the road shall not 
cost more than $12,500 per mile, and that 
the bonds shall not be appropriated to any other 
purpose than the purchase of railroad iron. 

Communications from Messrs. Barbee and 
Speed of a similar character as those to the board 
of aldermen were received. The decision of 
Judge Bullock was read and ordered to be 
spread upon the proceedings. 

The salary ordinance from the Board of Al- 
dermen was amended as follows: Auditor from 
$121)0 to $1100, assessor from $1200 to $1500, 
engineer from $1200 to $1400, physicians of the 
Eastern and Western district from $400 to $500 
each, alms house keeper from $600 to $500, 
clerks of the council from $800 to $700 each, 
and watchmen from $1 50 to $2. The ordi- 
nance passed — 12 to 3. 

Various accounts were allowed. 

An ordinance to tax hucksters $100 annually 
was passed. 

Mr. Pennebaker, from the revision committee, 
reported against an ordinance introduced by 
Dr. Raphael permitting tavern-keepers, apothe- 
caries, livery stable keepers, confectionaries, 
bakers, restaurants, and barbershops to keep 
open on Sunday. The report was not concurred 
in, and the ordinance was referred to a select 
committee consisting of Dr. Raphael and Messrs. 
Dirxlap and Beatty. 

Th*. council meets on Thursday evening next. 

Another Quick Trip.— The A. L. Shotwell 
arrived last night, making the trip f rom New 
to VJjis port in 5 days 3 hours and 38 



Orleans 
minutes 



-the quickest time made this season. 



We have received by her New Orleans papers 
to last Saturday evening and a copy of her mem- 
orandum, which gives the particulars of the 
trip. 



Consumption of Iron at Sebastopol.— If 

the Russian war shall have the effect to dimin 
ish the manufacture of railway iron in England, 
it seems likely to create a demand for iron in 
the shape of cannon balls and shells, quite equal 
to, if not exceeding, the diminution in the 
amount required for railroads. By the last 
steamer's news we learn that the allies have five 
hundred guns playing on Sebastopol, firing one 
hundred ai,.2 twi-.-ry .o ;,:.i.i t.Aly. Vc •». 

. .-!,./ ': !!s wei^h 

one ton. At every round fired, there will be 
of course ten tons and each day twelve hundred 

tons weight of cannon-balls and shells tt»T0w€; 
into Sebastopol. The bombardment at the latest 
dates had lasted twelve days, and of courill 

there- had been thrown into the town, in that 
time, fourteen thousand four hundred tout of 
iron. It is probable that the Russians may 
have hurled back at th* allies nearly the same 
weight of metal, and it is safe to compute the 
total consumption of iron in the seige of Sebas 
topol for these twelve days at twenty-five thou- 
sand tons. This iron, thus thrown away and 
wasted in war in '.he brief period of twelve 
days, would furnish the metal required to con- 
struct about 2,-2i)0 miles of railroad. 

How convenient the editor of the Journal finds 
it to make assertions. "Why is a," says •fce, 
"that you never said a solitary word against** 
doings in Kansas?" The readers of the DenSsV 
crat know how much truth there is in the im- 
plied assertion of the Journal. — Democrat. 

We certainly find it easy to make assertions 
and not difficult to maintain the truth of those 
we do make. If the '-implied assertion of the 
Journal" that the editor of the Democrat had 
not said a word against the doings in Kansas 
was an error, let him show the fact by citation 
of date and paragraph. We are open to con- 
viction. 



Counterfeiters Arrested. — The Cincin- 
nati police, on Wednesday, arrested a man named 
Geo. H. Cady on the steamer Bostona, and on 
searching his stateroom and person found $5,- 
535, in "fives" and "tens" on the Farmers Bank 
of Charleston, Va. The police proceeded to a 
house of questionable character, kept by a Mrs. 
Williams, where they found a man named Ar- 
nold. On searching the premises, they discover- 
ed about $20,000 of tha same description of 
money; mostly in sheets. Mrs. Williams and 
Arnold were taken into custody. 

Shipments of Pittsburg Coal.— We learn 
from Mr. Watson that the boats lad en with 
Pittsburg coal which have passed through the 
canal this season number 90, or 45 pair. They 
averaged 26,000 bushels to the pair, which 
makes the total quantity shipped 1,170,000. bush- 
els. The boats were destined for New Orleans, 
Natchez, Vicksburg, Memphis, St. Louis, and 
other towns. 



The well- " .Washington corres- 

pondent of the f3a ;r Sun gives in the fol- 
lowing letter a new view u f the purpose of Gov. 
Reeder's visit to Washington. If this view is 
correct, the Governor is a firmer a ml more ftar- 
le-s public functionary thaa either his enemies 
or his friends have believed him t o be: 

It has been generally. biU^erianeorxs, under- 
let ot Gov. KeeUer's visit lo thi» otv, at tne 
present time, is to lay Oeiore tne Executive Gov- 
ernment some questions in relation to his official 
conduct. This is far from being the fact. It is 
not necessary for him to make any appeal to the 
•Federal Government, either for a decision upon 
legal questions or for protection. 

He has acted in conformity with the laws, and 
Bit fully carried out the principles of the Ne- 
braska bill, sa far as his action was concerned-. 
He left no undecided questions, and it is for the 
disaffected, not for him, to make an appeal to 
the President from his decision of acts. "Ebe 
fact is that the President has takm no cogni- 
zance of any question on the subject of Guv . 
Reeder's administration, and has not been called 
upon to do so. 

No question whatever ia regard to this matter 
has been referred to the law officer of the gov- 
ernment, though Gov. Reeder suggested to those 
who objected to some of bis decisions, as to the 
legality of the election returns, that they eoukl 
have the question referred to the U. £ . Attorney 
funeral. 

tlov. Reeder is heee to receive instructions 
and money for carrying into effect several libe- 
ral acts of the late Congress for military po^t 
road- and other improvements in the territory. 
When be returns he mill take with him hi  fam- 
ily, which I mention as a proof that he has no 
doubt of his ability to maintain his authority 
and preserve law and order in the territory, not- 
withstanding the threats of some of his oppo- 
nents, on the Missouri border, to eject him by 
Torce. 

The new election which Gov. Reeder has or- 
dered on the 22d will not probably be attend • d 
with any disturbances or irregularities. The 
Missiurians have no motive to interfere in that 
election, because they have already secured a 
majority in the Legislature, independently of 
the vacancies to be filled at the coming elec- 
tion.

We suspeefcthat *his re what the editor of th' 
Southern Democrat is in the habit of saying 
when the bar-keeper is pouring out liquor for 



him.

what it has said before venturing upon specula- 
tions as to what it will say hereafter.

The R. J. Ward. — This great steamer reach- 
ed Portland at 15 minutes after 10 o'clock last 
night, making the trip from New Orleans to this 
port in 5 days 4 hours and 45 minutes^ She was 
crowded with passengers, and has- proved bv 
this run that her speed corresponds with all her 
other good qualities. We thank Messrs. Wool- 
folk and Gray, her attentive clerks, for New 
Orleans papers of last Saturday evening and a 
copy of her memorandum. 

The following statement was furnished by the 
officers of the Ward: 

1 he Ward left New Orleans with no prepa- 
ration whatever for a run with any boat, having 
been advertised for that day and hour some time 
in advanee, and paying no attention to the de- 

f arture of any boat, and she is now advertised 
or the balance of the season and will leave as 
advertised, and, although her officers desire it 
to be understood by all parties that they do not 
wish the Ward to "be considered a racing boat, 
yet they shall not be deterred at any time from 
showing that, in addition to the comforts which 
she lays claim to, she has speed equal to any 
boat on the river.

Whereas, The property of John Hughes, 
amounting to several millions of dollars, will 
avert to his legitimate issue when he dies: there- 
fore 

Resolved, That all the property of John 
Hughes which will avert to his legitimate heirs 
when he hies, be and is hereby, taxed, like the

Viiual of the city.

Know-Nothings.— The Nashville Whig, of 

Wednesday, says: 

The rumor was pretty current yesterday that 
there was a State convention of this Impalpable 
party in town, ami tnut they had unanimously 
nominated Col. Gentry as their candidate for 
Governor. That liie city has been lull of 
strangers daring the week is certain. 

[For the Louisville Bullet iu. ) 
PROTRACTED MEEri.Nt.. 

Rev. D. P. Henderson, of Mo., is still iu our 
city and is continuing his interesting meeting in 
the Christian Chapel, corner of Walnut and 
Fourth streets. The audiences are large and 
attentive. Many are being converted to the 
Christian religion under his labors. He is a 
very argumentative and popular pulpit orator. 
He speaks with great ease, fluency, and effect. 
It is very evident that he has studied logic with 
much care. He repudiates the modern notion 
of rev ivalism, and urges on his audience calm- 
ness, composure of mind, and a firm determina- 
tion to sacrifice everything for the truth of the 
Christian religion. The very best aud most in- 
telligent of our citizens flock to hear him. He 
is now delivering a course of lectures on "The 
True Church of Christ." This evening he will 
deliver his 4th lecture on the "Family JSame and 
Creed" of the Church of Christ. We under- 
stand that he will remain in the city until next 
w*ek. 

Rev. Mr. H. belongs to the corps editorial, 
and is publishing a monthly periodical called 
'The Christian Evangelist," v/hfyjf is printed 
at his office in Fort Wayne, Ind-fwid is issued 
simultaneously at that place and Desoto and 
Canton, Mo. He is also the founder of Christ- 
ian University in Lewis county, Mo., which is 
destined to be one of the most splendid edifices 
in the valley of the Mississippi. We understand 
that Mr. H. has procured $110,000 for this in- 
stitute and that he is still making efforts for 
$100,000 more. Success, therefore, to such 
praiseworthy efforts, and success to this able 
and philanthropic Divine. • 



Hotel Prices and Profits. — It has been 
officially announced by some of our leading 
hotels, that, on and after the 1st of M. y, the 
charge for board would be $3 per day. The 
Astor, St. Nicholas, and 2vew York have raised 
their prices on account, we believe, of the 
high price of beef, pork, and potatoes. The 
Metropolitan Hotel continues the old charge of 
$2 50 per day, and it is the intention of the 
proprietors to make no change, under any cir- 
cumstances short of famine. With flour at $12 
per barrel, potatoes at $1 50 per bushel, and 
other articles in proportion, It does not pay 
very well at $2 5li per day, but the proprietors 
of the Metropolitan believe that for tne year 
through the old prices will be sufficiently remu- 
nerative, and they also believe that hotels should 
take their chances with other kinds of business, 
good seasons with the bad. Uniformity 
prices is an important matter with the traveling 
public, and the Metropolitan will adhere fo the 
old rate'tnrough summer and winter.

The Roebuck Committee continued. T1m£ 
Duke of Newcastle had been examined, and hisj .

ENING BULLETIN 



FRIDAY EVENING. MAY 11, 1855.

Stephen H. Branch— Outside Secretary of 
the Police Investigating Committee of the Board 
of Aldermen, City of New York. — The city of 
New York is blessed at this time with an alder- 
man named Briggs who is worth his weight in 
gold to those who can make anything by laugh 
Ing. As chairman of a comn it.ee to inquire 
into the nativity of the members of the 
police corps of the city of New York, he has 
flayed antics for some time that were decidedly 
frich. We hope that he is related to the Briggs 
♦who has been immortalised in Punch, by the 
 burin of Leach. He should have some consan- 
guinity with that hero. 

Alderman Briggs has just made a new de- 
monstration of his talents which is worth repub- 
lishing in this region. The alderman enters 
into such minute particulars of the history of 
his chum, Stephen H. Branch, as to show that 
Prescott and Bancroft may as well look to their 
laurels. The history of the said S. H. Branch 
is of some interest to some people in Louisville, 
and we give him the benefit of a republication 
of Alderman Briggs's report to the board of 
New York aldermen, made on Monday last. 
The alderman broke loose in the following 
style: 

Report of the Special Police Committee Respect- 
ing the Salary, $c, of Stephen H. Branch, as 
Outside Secretary. 

Alderman Hendrick recently offered the fol- 
lowing resolution, which was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the chairman of the special 
committee employed in investgating matters 
connected with the police department be, and 
he is hereby directed te report to this board by 
what authority he has employed an outside se- 
cretary, what compensation is to be allowed to 
Stephen H. Branch, Esq., the historian and trav- 
eler, for his services, aud who is to pay the 
same." 

In response to the above, the, special police 
committee will observe that in consequence of 
the recent labothJus duties .of ihe cje/ks of the 
common councii^hey det#rmihe,d.tG f mjilo'jL ari

luctance, the valuaBlejfcrJtpeii jo^ilpafriotic 
American gentlemai, mci^thW etJlinanlyT dis- 
tinguished as a phreuo-mnemotechmc, anft as a 
fireman, scholar, statesman, and jurist, aud as a 
mirthful traveler in perilous lands. That he is 
a native of Providence, R. 1., a State that reared 
tile ''Rhode Island Line," a band of courageous 

Jstriols, on whom Washington relied in the 
arkest hour of the revolution — a State that es- 
tablished the first cotton factory on this conti- 
nent, and gave birth to Green and Perry, those 
illustrious soldiers on land and sea. 
' With such a pedigree, and with such intelli- 
gence and experience as he possesses, the com- 
mittee lost no time in earnestly requesting him 
to become their outside secretary. On request- 
ing Mr. Branch's bill for his patriotic, protract- 
irdnon«. and faithful services. *b»y voe* 
amazed to learn that he magnanimously besought 
the committee to give to Alderman Herrick, the 
Inover of the resolution, whatever they consid- 
ered a fair equivalent for his services, as a slight 
testimonial of regard for that gentleman's unde- 
viating fidelity to the municipal treasury, and to 
the tax-payers of the city and county of New 
York, since be has been alderman of the nine- 
teenth ward. 

Respectfully submitted by 

JOHN H. BRIGGS, 

Chairman 0 f the Special Police Investigating Committee. 

Alderman Briggs is either not fully posted up 
on the history of his hero, or he suppresses val- 
uable truths respecting his career. This huge, 
black-whiskered S. H. Branch came out Wes' 
once for a career, and diddled a number of the 
fcitlxens of Louisville each out of five dollars, 
ale signed a pledge to Professor Gouraud, in 
Mmiuon with hosts of others, setting forth that 
he would not attempt to toucli the Professors 
eTyiftem of phreno-mr.emotechny, which he was 
about to learn, without a certificate from that 
gen&einH.n that he was able to teach the science. 
But ■efore the course of lectures was comple- 
t|fVk New York, Branch came out here and 
undertook to teach what he did not know him- 
self. \ number of persons paid him in ad- 
vance Ar his instruction, but, when the news of 
bis attempts reached the city of New York, the 
press of ^hat city unanimously denounced him 
as a scoundrel. The Courier and Enquirer and 
the Tribune were especially severe upon him. 
The Hon. B F. Butler, a member of Gouraud's 
class, reached here one Sunday morning, about 
the time that the New York papers came out 
with these denunciations, and Branch made an 
effort to get that gentleman to hide the stain 
jipoii his character, but Mr. Butler treated him 
unmitigated contempt. Branch assured 
ras going to make a temporary 
to inflict public chastisement 
upon Col. Wfrfcjknd the editor of the Tribune, 
and he would theWet urn and fulfil the engage- 
ment which he had mad^with his class, and for 
which they had paid ht$V But the said Ste- 
phen H. Branch has never tea bis face in 
Louisville since his flight, and -ieSsfts fortunate 
for him that he did not, for his plmifWed and 
humbugged class had made up their rhinde to 
give bun a coat of tar aud feathers immediately 
upon his return to Louisville. 

Such is Alderman Briggs's hero. We should 
scarcely have supposed that he would risk him- 
self befogs New York public after the wett- 
founded derivations of the N«w York press, 
denunciations »%frhich he quietly submitted at 
that time, and whicVstiil bear upon him heavily 
enough to exclude him from the society of all 
decent and honorable menV^How his cheeks 
must have burned when Alderman Briggs called 
him a phreno-mnemotechnistr 



823r"An Irishman named John McCart'hV 
killed at a German drinking saloon, at Chiei 
on Tuesday, by its proprietor, Charles Adler- 



(£3^- The St Louis Intelligencer, the St. Lou- 
is Democrat, the Boonville Observer, the Han- 
nibal Messenger, the Glasgow Times, the Ful- 
ton Telegraph, and other respectable papers of 
Missouri are exceedingly severe upon the late 
Parkville mob and upon the violent proceed- 
ings that have since taken place in and near that 
place and the threats of still further and great- 
er outrages. We copy the following from the 
St. Louis Intelligencer of . ^t Tuesday: 

The light that is breaking upon the Western 
horizon looks very much like the lurid flame of 
civil war. It is a solemn crisis that now im- 
pends over the country. We know that agents 
are out, from western Missouri, striving to ex- 
cite the people of the rest of the State to join 
them in the violent proceedings they have al- 
ready started in Platte county. 

If they succeed, Missouri will soon be in a 
flame. It will spread to the South, and the 
Union itself will perish like a burnt scroll! 

It is a time for every patriot to be cool and 
firm. Our country must not perish thus. Our 
homes, property, wives, and children must not 
be given up to civil war, to mob law sod anar- 
chy, to serve the purpose of a few desperate 
politicians. But there is great cause of alarm, 
and we warn our friends throughout the State 
that a volcano will speedily burst under their 
feet, and destroy the State and the Union, un- 
less the) have virtue, prudence, and courage 
enough to resist approaches that will be made 
to them. 

We are glad to see that the occasion is calling 
forth men suitable to meet the crisis. The 
Hannibal Messenger leads off in an article, 
which we give below. It is worthy of Mis- 
souri. Let its spirit be adopted; and peace, 
law. and the Union may yet prevail. The pr ss 
of the State, that wields a wide and wholesome 
influence, should encourage the support of 
"LAW AND ORDER," and strengthen the 
hearts of those citizens who do not think that 
the time has yet come for Missouri to plunge 
into civil war and destroy the American Union, 
on account of the Territory of Kansas, and the 
recent broils there. 

The same paper- of the following day con- 
tains some strong and just reflections upon the 
consequences which the citizens of Western 
Missouri must inevitably bring upon themselves 
by the course of lawlessness and ruffianism they 
are pursuing. We copy a few brief para- 
graphs: 

Who will go willingly to settle down in a 
community where the arm of law is pals.ed, and 
the right to be heard on trial, the right to defend 
against grave accusations, and the right to ap- 
peal against unjust judgments, is silenced in the 
loud fury of a mob, thirstinsfor blood and life? 
Who would willingly remain in a community, in 
which a secret, inquisitorial organization exists, 
which hears charges against men in secret con- 
clave at night,decrees the hanging of the men and 
the destruction of their property, and actually 
details and commissions agents to go and execute 
the decrees of the Inquisition, and pledges life 
and money to stand by those agents and save 
them from all harm resulting from the execution 
of the bloody decrees? Are the people of 
Western Missouri ready to meet the conse- 
quences to themselves, to their own peace and 
security of life and property, and to their own 
temporal prosperity, by plunging into a state 
of anarchy like tbis? 

It is easy enough to raise a storm of human 
passion, but who can ride and rule it, when its 
fury is at its height? 

We are well aware that it is useless to talk to 
men, when they are highly excited, about the 
pecuniary loss they must sustain by their vio- 
lence. I'hey declare that it is principle, not 
3?« y feat guttles their aeti ns. This :s arcB 
enough, when there is principle enough involved 
and danger enough imminent, to threaten the 
loss of liberty and estate. But such a crisis is 
not at hand in Missouri — and still the people of 
the Platte country are destroying themselves. 
Why, even slaveholders would not willingly 
emigrate into a country and settle down and 
buy property, where the laws are set aside, and 
men are mobbed, driven away, and hung with- 
out trial by law and appeal to juries. 

If the people of Weston, Missouri, do not, of 
their own accord, proclaim peace and law in 
their midst — if they permit violence aud disre- 
gard of the regular forms of law and trial by 
jury to prevail, as they have lately done, they 
will ruin all Western Missouri for twenty years 
to come. 

No peaceably disposed person will go there to 
live. Lands will depreciate in value. Remov- 
als from the country will be frequent, and no 
incomers to take their places. Farms will be 
se n everywhere for sale, and no buyers want- 
ing them. The commerce and business of the 
whole State will suffer a serious and rapid de- 
cline. 

Indiana University. — We have received in 
pamphlet form the addresses of Governor 
Wright and the Rev. W. M. Daily, D. D., de- 
livered at the installation of the last named gen- 
tleman as president of the Indiana University 
August 2, 1854. These orations are productions 
of marked ability and eloquence, highly credi- 
table to the gentlemen by whom they were de- 
livered. That of Gov. Wright contains some 
reflections and advice that it will be well for the 
faculties in the colleges and universities of the 
various States of tbis Union to consider and 
adopt. Of this character is the following sen- 
tence, which will serve as a specimen: 

The systems of political economy taught in our 
colleges do not, it seems to me, sir, attach suf- 
ficient importance to the interests, rights, and 
duties of e:ir State governments. A wise ad- 
ministration of the affairs of the State 
governments will impart wisdom and strength 
to the national councils; and that is a 
wise p&licy which in all ordinary cases 
throws the several States of the Union upon 
then own resources, and confines the 
action of the General Government to the 
•sereise^f those powers clearly granted to it by 
th».Censt&alion. The desire to foster strong 
attachments* to ^ur State interests, and to fix in 
the minds of students a true appreciation of our 
Staterigbta, should never be permitted to de- 
generate into a feeling of prejudice against any 
other portion of the Union. The instructors of 
the VTVita\jf the present day should labor to es- 
tabnsh "f e\ue;s of friendship, harmouy, and 
peace amon^Le citizens of our widely extend- 
ed republic* I ^he richest promise is to the 
pesee-makerj arM^his promise extends not only 
to individuals, bu\jo communities, States, and 
nations.

which have been distributed uuhe Middle and

Bbeckinridge Cannel Coal.— We copy the 
following from the New Orleans Crescent of 
the 4th inst. When the writer says that one 
barrel of the Breckinridge coal will last as long 
as two barrels of the Pittsburg, he does not 
I mean that this will be the result if equal quan- 
tities in bulk or weight of the two kinds of coal 
are kept in the grate. But a small quantity of 
the Breckinridge coal makes as much flame and 
heat as three or four times the same quantity of 
Pittsburg, and thus a barrel of the former article 
will last much longer than a barrel of the latter: 

Breckinridge Cannel Coal. — We received a 
visit some days since from Mr. John J. Ange- 
vene, agent of the Breckinridge Cannel Coal 
Company, who favored us with a specimen of 
the article he has to dispose of. This coal has 
been spoken of very highly by those who have 
tried it la Kentucky, aud has been pronounced 
by competent judges unquestionably the test in 
the country. In the first instance it burns well 
and clearly, giving a strong, brilliant heat, with 
but a small residuum of ashes. One barrel of 
it will last as long as two of the Pittsburg coal, 
and burn with the damper down, while the 
Pittsburg needs to have it up. The flame is like 
that of a candle, clear, bright, and steady. It 
burns to clear white ashes and leaves no clinkers 
on the grate bars. It is infinitely cheaper and 
more valu* ble for families, and for steam engines 
having boilers with large flues, than any other 
quality that can be found. 

We speak advisedly with regard to this mat- 
ter, and, after giving it a fair trial, pronounce it 
the best and cheapest coal we have ever used. 
We look upon its general introduction here as a 
matter of great importance, feeling satisfied that 
when a fair trial is made it will in every instance 
give satisfaction. 

Courtship and Marriage in France. — 
A forthcoming work on "The Ins and Outs of 
Paris, or Paris by Day and Nigh'," by the Baror- 
ess de Marguerrittes, has the following about 
courtship and marriage in France. It is full of 
novelty for this latitude, and will be read with 
interest. We quote from the advanced sheets of 
this new and interesting book, which have been 
politely furnished us by the publisher, Wm. 
White Smith, li#5 Chestnut street, Philadelphia. 

This is the way they court in France: — One la- 
dy says to another: 

"My daughter is eighteen. She has so much." 
( Every girl has a dowry if it be but five hundred 
francs. ) You see so many young men — cannot 
you think of one to suit her." 

Of course the lady can, for men are as eager, in 
France, to marry, as the girls are to get hus- 
bands. It is an increase of fortune, and a patent 
of respectability, in all stations, in all professions. 
The young man is spoken to, and of course the 
young lady named to him. A party is given, and 
they meet. Or sometimes the girl is taken to 
the Opera, and the lover examines her through 
his glass. If satisfied with the survey, he is al- 
lowed to pay a visit. Then the girl, supposed to 
be in entire ignorance up to this point, is asked 
how she would like so-and-so for a husband. 

Now, it is but just to say, that/if the girl does 
not approve, the negotiation goes no further. 
But as she has never spoken to this suitor, and 
knows she will not speak to any future suitor, if 
the man is tolerably good-looking, and the tail- 
or has done his duty, why she — being assured by 
her parents that the money is all right — gener- 
ally says, "yes." Then the mamma of the bride- 
groom comes one evening when the hou-e has 
been set in order and every one dressed in his 
best. And after the first salutation she rises, and 
in a solemn voice asks the hand of Mademoiselle 

Estelle ,for Mons. Achille . Then the 

mamma on the opposite side of the house accepts 
the offer; Mademoiselle Estelle weeps, and 
throws herself into her future mamma's arms, 
whilst the son-in-law embracps the mother of his 
intended. The papas shake hands; the betrothed 
lovers,relea ed from the maternal arms, mutually 
bow to each other — and the servants bring in tea. 
Then the lawyers set to work to draw up the con- 
tract; the mamma orders new dresses, etc., for 
her daughter, and puts new caps and dresses on 
herself. The bridegroom comes every evening 
with a grand bouquet, which he offers to Made- 
moiselle — flirts an hour or two with the mother 
— bows to the daughter — and goes off. The 
bride elect has only to embroider quietly by her 
mother's side, to smile, to blush, and simper. 
Then the negotiating lady comes in grand state, 
preceded by an enormous trunk. 5lamma and 
the bride receive her — never, of course, heed- 
ing the trunk. Then the lady makes a speech, 
opens the ti unk, and presents the bride with the 
corbeille — namely, the wedding dress, veil, and 
wreath; two or three cashmere shawls; ditto vel- 
vet dresse ; a set of furs; a se' of lace fl Junces; 
a set of diamonds; a watch, a fan, a prayer book, 
and a purse of gold. These come from the 
b:ideg'Oom. In return, the lady gets a b'acelet 
from the bride, with many thanks for the pres- 
ents and the husband. The mother scolds the 
intended for the recktess magnificence displayed 
when he comes at night. The bride says, "ah, 
monsieur!" blushes and throws herself into 
her mother's arms. Then the mamma gives 
her present to the intended — six cambric 
shirts, and six white cravats, the whole trimmed 
with Valenciennes, chosen with an eye to the fu- 
ture pocket handkerchiefs of the bride; fe r, after 
the wedding day, what man will be bedecked 
with lace? At last comes the signing of the con- 
tract. The bride takes one step into the world — 
she receives her visitors, and speaks, nay conver- 
se, with all except the intended — that would be 
improper. She gives tokens of affection to her 
unmarried relations bought from the purse in the 
corbeilU. The wonders of this corbeille are dis- 
played in one room, while the trousseau of the 
bride, given by the mother, is exhibited in anoth- 
er. Embroidery, linen, cambric, laces, etc., are 
here lavished on the personal under-clot 1 ing of 
the bride, made up in dozens and dozens of each 
article — with piles and piles of table-cloths, 
sheets, towels, etc. — all marked with embroider- 
ed marks, and tied with pink and blue ribbons. 
Then comes 'he civil ceremony; and two days 
after, the last scene of all; at which we have "as- 
sisted," in the church of St. Sulpice [the reli- 
gious ceremony.] 

This is the way they manage marriages in 
France. Love is out of the question. But ic 
comes after in more cases than it lasts in other 
countries, where it is supposed to come before. 
There is great liberty after marriage on both 
sides, but a strict observance of outward forms. 
Wom-n are devoted mothers; and if they do not 
always esteem the man, ihey invariab.y respect 
the husband. The family tie is stronger in 
France than any where else. If in France 
there are few model marriages, where happiness 
and love are ever blooming, there are certainly 
much fewer really unhappy ones. 

Grapes for Consumption.— Ths use of grapes 
as an article of food is much recommended 1n 
cases of consumption. They contain a large 
quantity of grape sugar, the kind which most 
nearly resembles milk sugar in its character and 
composition, which also is very useful for con- 
sumptives, it having a great attraction for oxy- 
en, and herefore readily affording materials 
r respiration

Godey's Lady's Book for May, 

JpLM.L of the latest Fashions and interesting reading mat- 
Bachelors' attentions are particularly invited tothis number. 
They should notfail lo read what Miss Bremer says about mar- 
ried men. 

Reader, are you a bachelor? If you are. remember marriage 
is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms aid fills 
cities and churches. Celibacy, like the fly in the heart of an 
apple, dwells in perpetual sweetness, but sits alone, and is con- 
fined, aud at last dies in singleness; but marriage, like tho 
useful bee. build* a house and c:\th-rs sweetness from every 
Mower. Come with me, saw "bachelor readers, "I have 
made up my mind to 6tart." If you would be useful, hap- 
py, prosperous, and honored, journey toward the land 
ol wedlock, and when circumstances are favorable, take some 
partner by the hand, enter its precincts, and with an abiding 
confidence and pure desire, 'settle down" in the midst of its 
sprini'ina delight- ' 
babies.

An Interesting Occasion and Correi 
The Grand Master of the Grand Lodge (Mason- 
ic) of the District of Columbia, Dr. Charles S. 
Frailey, has recently received a letter from 
the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge in 
Pai is, asking that a delegate be appointed on 
the part of the District Grand Lod^e to attend 
a congress of the Masons of the Wor d to as- 
semble in Paris on the 1st proximo, to take into 
consideration the condition of Masonry over the 
G!obe, and to adopt for the benefit of taf order 
whatever may be appropriate and lawful. The 
Grand Lodge of this District rinds itself unable 
at so short notice to send over a suitable repre- 
sentative, but has directed the Grand Master to 
send to the Grand Master n Paris a commission 
in blank to be accorded to some worthy Ameri- 
can Mason, who may be attending the World's 
exhibition in Paris, to act on the occasion ex- 
plained above, as the representative of the Ma-

Steam Engine Without a Boiler. — A friend has 
exhibited to us the plan and drawings of an en- 
gine of this kind, of which a successfully work- 
ing model has been built and is owned by Wm. 
O Brien, Esq., who is staying for a day or two 
at the Weddell House. We are informed that 
the model works exceedingly well and that Mr. 
O'Brien is desirous to connect himself with 
some party so that a full and fair trial shall be 
given to so novel and interesting, and, it may 
turn out, important invention. We have seen a 
notice of it by a leading Philadelphia paper, 
where the model has been exhibited, and deem 
the matter of sufficient interest to our intelligent 
citizens at least to invite a call upon Mr. O'Bri- 
en and listen to his views and representations.

Bo- ton. May 19. 
A Canton dispatch, dated March 14, received 
via London, and telegraphed from Trieste, says 
that there is no change in the markets. No teas 
for the United States.

Letters from Leavenworth announce the ar- 
rival of the Salt Lake mail. 

The Sioux Indians had driven off the mules 
from the mail station m Devil's Gate, also all 
of the animals belonging to the traders. The 
. people at Sweet Water had quitted the settle- 
ment for safety. All was xquier this side of 
Leavenworth, but the Indian* were making 
threats against the mail party. ' Fifteen persons 
arrived. They traveled only at night, and were 
not molested. 

The April and May outward mails were fal- 
len in with in good condition.

The K.iow-Nothings have elected their candi-

The Know-Nothing State Convention is stili 

in session here. 

Boston, May 10. 

A m^ssase was received in the House this 
inoimng from Gov. Gardner respectfully d - 
clining to remove Judge Loring. The message 
is rather iensrthy. The House refused to refer 
the message to the committee of federal rela- 
tions, and it was laid on the table and 5,000 
copies ordered to be printed. 

The Senate to-day passed to the third reading 
Uie persor.al liberty bill, which nullifies the fu- 
gitive slave law. 

The Governor's decision appears to give satis- 
faction in Boston, b.it will probably act against 
the future political propects of Gov. G. in the 
State at large. 

The Kinney Expedition steamer is advertised 
to sail on the lv»rh. 

St. Louis, May 10. 

The cholera continues its ravages among the 
emigrants on the Upper Mississippi. The boats
