tgencies of the case appear to ret[uire. 

A brief exposition of the circum- 
stances referred to, and of iheir causes, 
will ba necessary to the lui+understaid- 
ing of the recommendations which ic is 
proposed to submil. 

The act to organize the territories of 
of Nebraska attd Kansas was a manifes;- 
atation of the legislative opinion oLG’oi*- 
gress on two great, points of constitution - 
al construction — one, that the designa- 
tion of the boundaries ol a new territory, 
and provision for its political organiza- 
tion and administration as a territory, 
are measures which of right fall within 
the powers of the general government; 
and the other, that the inhabitants of 
any such tenasery considered as an in- 
dicate State are entitled, in the exer- 
cise of self-government, to dete: mine for 
themselves what shall be their own do- 
mestic institutions, subject only to the 
constitution and the laws duly enacted 
by Congress under it, and to the power 
of the existing States to decide accord- 
ing to the provisions and principles of 
the constitution at what time the terri- 
tory shall be received as a State into the 

Union. Such are the great political I States which lias so long disturbed the 
rights which are solemnly declared and ! repose of our country, and excited in- 
affirmed by that act. - dividuais, otherwise patriotic and law- 

Baaed upon this, theory, the act ot i abidinrv, to toil with misdirected zeal in 
Congress defined lor each territory the the attempt to propagate their social 
outlines of Republican Government, - theories by the perversion and abuse of 
distributing public authority among) the powers of Congt ess. The persons 
lawfully created agents — executive, ju- and the parties whom tiie tenor of the 
dicial and legislative — to be appointed i act to organize the territories of Nebras- 
either by the general government or by 



from the office of chief executive mavis- 
trate of Lne territory. 

Before the requisite prepa ation was 
accomplished l'orelection of a territori- 
al . legislature, an election of delegate 
to Congress had been held in the terri- 
tory, ou the 20th day of November, 
1004, and the delegate took his seat in 
the house of Representatives without 
challenge. If arrangements had been 
perfected by the Governor so that the 
election for members of the legislative 
assembly might be held in the several 
’precincts at the same time as for dele- 
gate to Congress, any question apper- 
taining to the qualification of the per- 
sons voting as people of the territory, 
would have passed necessarily and at 
once under the supe; vision of Congress, 
as the judge of the validity of the re- 
turn of the delegate, and would have 
been determined before the conflicting 
passions had become inflamed by time, 
and befoie opportunity could have been 
afforded for sympathtic interference 
of tiie people of individual States. 

This interfence, insofar as concerns 
its primary causes and its immediate 
commencement, was one of the inci- 
dents of that pernicieus agitation on the 
subject of the condition of the .colored 
persons held to service in some of the 



ed

: t recognizing the body as a duly elect- 
and constituted legislative assem-

kaand Kansas thwarted in the endeavor 
to impose through the agency of Con- 
gress, their particular views of social 
organization on the people of the fu- 
ture new Suites, now perceiving that the 
policy of leaving the inhabitants of each 
Sate to judge for themselves in this re- 
spect, was ineiadically rooted in the • of some prohibitory or incompatible pr 



objection may 
he: L-on&ise.ed 

dod all that* superstructure 

plainly against law, which now threat- 
ens the peace, not only of the territory 
of Kansas, but of the Unidn. 

Such an objection to the proceedings 
of the legislative assembly was of ex- 
ceptionable origin, for the reason that, 
by the express terms of the organic law, 
the seat of government of the territery 
was "located temporarily at Fort Lrven- 
werth,’’and yetthe Gov. himself remain- 
ed there less than two months, and of his 
own discretion transferred the sc-atof gov- 
ernment to theShawnee Mission, whore it 
was in fact at the time the assembly 
wero called to meet at Pawnee Citv. 
If the Governor had any such right to 
change temporarily the seat of Govern- 
ment syll more iiad the legislative as- 
semblyi The objection is of exception- 
able origin for the further reason that 
the place indicated by tho Governor, 
without having any exclusive claim of 
preference in itself, was a proposed 
town siie only, which he and o hers were 
attempting to locate unliwfally upon 
land within military reservation, and 
for psrticipation in which illegal act the 
I commandant of tho post — a superior of- 
ficer of the array — has been dismissed 
by sentence of court martial. 

Nor is it easy to see why tiie legisla- 
tive assembly might not with propne- 
ty pass the territorial act transferring 
its sittings to the Shawnee Mission. Ii 
it could not, that must be on account 



be, it requires to I f.. iD i*-'*K..tal or any other federal law, 
ause upon it is foun- 1 to * e authority of tho general law. 

; sjjr -. an event, the pa..h of duty 
fcF fiveiixecutive is plain. The consti- 
tuiion requiring him to take care that 
thelawaof the United States be faith- 
fully executed, if they be opposed in 
the Territory of Kansas, he may, and 
should piace at the disposal of the mar- 
shal anr public force of the United 
States, winch happens t« b« within the 
jurisdiction, to be used as a portion of 
the posse corriitatus, and, if that do not 
suffice ro maintain order, then he may 
call forth the militia of ono or more 
Stales for that object, or employ for tiie 
same object any part of the land or nav- 
al force of the United States. And if 
the Territory be invaded by citizens of 
o .her States, whether for the purpose of 
deciding elections or for any other, and 
the local authorities find themselves un- 
able to repel or withstand it, they will 
be entitled to, and upon the fact being 
fully ascertained, they shall most cer- 
tainly receive the aid of the general gov- 
ernment. 

But it is not the duty of the Presi- 
dent of the United States to volunteer 
interposition by force to j reserve the 
puiity ci elections either in a Stale or 
Territory. To  !o 60 would be subver- 
sive of public freedom. And whe 
a law be 

a question for him 



pecee which may become requisite in 
the execution of the laws, or the main- 
tenance of public order in the Territory 
of Kansas.

The city was thrown into much ex-

formation that a party cf slaves, sixteen 
in all, had made a stampede from Ken- 
tucky to this side of the river. Other 
| circumstances, however, whichl after- 
wardjtranspired, have imparted a degree 
of horrible interest to the affair different 
to that which usually attends a 
stampede of negroes. The particulars 
are as follows: Three of the slaves, who 
bore the relationship of Father, Mother 
and son, the two foirner apparently 
about fifty years of age, the son twenty- 
five, were the property of Mr. James 
Marshall, of Riehwood Station, Boone

Marshal, and the son of the old 
couple with whom he ran away. It 
seen s that about 10 o’clock on Sunday 
night the party took a pair of horses and

years in this city. Young Kite was

known to be untrue. The fearful act 
I lies between one or the other of the mis- 
erable parents, perhaps both, but doubt- 
lees, the truth will be brought viw by 
tho Coroner to-day. 

The old c©u p j/jare Ihild and rather in-

of the children is a good-locking, hearty 
negress, while her husband bears the 
appeal ance of having beon well eared 
for, in fact, young Mr. Marshall stales 
that he haa always treated him moie as a 
companion than a slave; they have been 
playmates in childhood and have grown 
up together, "and now,” said he, "if 
money can save him from the effect of 
any rash act he has committed I am 
willing to give it to any amount.” Af- 
ter the United States Commissioner had 
adjournnd the hearing of the case until 
this morning, a couple of hackney 
coaches were procured for conveying 
the fugitive* to the Hammond-street 
Station house, but a crowd was assem 
bled in the street, whose threats alarm- 
ed the h&ckmen for the safety of their 
carriages, and the prisoners wpre walked 
under the conduet of a strong escort. 
Some threats were made by a portion of 
the mob, but no violence or attempt at 
rescue was made; subsequenth*, they 
were lodged for safer keeping in the 
county jail. 

In the meantime the leading aboli- 
tionists busied themselves, and a writ 
of habeas corpus was procured, com- 
manding the United Stiles Marshal to 
produce the fugitives before Judge Bur- 
goyne of the Probate Court; they, how- 
ever, were allowed to remain in Jail, 
and w i i 1 be brought before the United 
States Commissioner, as previously ar- 
ranged. 

At the time of the flight of Messrs. 
Gainss and Marshall’s negroes, a gang 
of eight left Covington, six belonging 
to Mr Levi F. Dougherty, five men and 
one woman, and two men owned by 
John W. Stevenson, Eeq, both residents 
of Covington. The Marshal of Coving- 
ton, with several officers of this city, 
supposed they were upon their trask; 
but after a fruitless search, they found 
themselves at fault and at a late hour 
last night no clue had been obtained of 
their lurking-place. In the meantime 
there is much excitement existing, the 
bloody episode having invested the af- 
fair with _a tinge of „ fearful, although 
romantic interest. The Abolitionists 
regard the parents of the murdered 
child as a hero and heroine, teeming with 
lofty and holy emotions, who, Virgiuius- 
like, would rather imbue their hands 
in the blood of their offspring than al- 
low them to were the shackles of slav- 
ery,* whiie others look upon them as 
brutal and unnatural murderers. At 
any rats the affair will furnish some 
employment t* lawyers as well as of- 
fip»rs, an extra for^a ©T tEa latter being 
necessary to prevent ahRscue while the 1 
case is pending. — Cin^Enq., Jan. 28.

Those decisions of the returning offi- j rightful subjects of legislation consistent

appoint the lime and place of the first | by its nature, one appertaining exclu- 



meeting of the legislative assembly. In 
substance, the same duties were devolv- 
ed on the Governor of Nebraska. 

While by this act the principle of con- 
stitution for each of the territories was 
one and the same, and the details of or- 
ganic legislation regarding both were as 
nearly as could be identical, and while 
the territory of Nebraska was tranquilly 
and successfully organized in due course 
of law, and its first legislative assembly 
met on the 16th of Janua y, 1855, the 
organization of Kansas was long delay- 
ed, and has been attended with serious 
difficulties and embarrassments, partly 
the consequence of local mal-adminis- 
tration, and partly of the unjustifiable in- 
terferance of the inhabitants of some of 
the States foreign by residence, interests 
and rights to the territory. 

The Governor of the Territory of 
Kansas commissioned, as before stated, 
on the 28th of June, 1854, did not 
reach the designated seat of hisgoveru- 
ment until the 7th of the ensuing Oc- 
tober; and even then failed to take the 
first step in its legal oiganization — that 
of ordering the census or enumeraion of 
its inhabitants — until so late a day that 
the election of the members of the legis- 
lative assembly did not take place until 
the 30th of March, 1855, nor its meeting 
until the second of July 1855. So that, 
for a yea i after tho territory was consti- 
tuted by tho act of Congress, and the of- 
ficers tc be appointed by the foderal ex- 
ecutive had been commissioned, it was 
without any legislative authority, with- 
out local law, and of course without the 
ordinary guarantees of peao  and public 
order.

Accordingly, the Governor, by pro- 
clamation, convened the assembly thus

City; the two houses met and were duly ! more general character. Persons con- 
■' " ” ' 1 fessedly not constituting the body poli- 



organized in the ordinary parliamentary 
form; each sent to, and receieved from, 
the governor the official communications 
usual on such occasions; an elaborate 
message opening the session was com- 
municated by the Governor; and the gen- 
eral business of legislation was entered 
upon by the legislative assembly. 

But, aftera few days the assembly re- 
solved to adjourn to another place in the 
territory. A law was accordingly pass- 
ed, against the consent of the Governor, 
but in due form otherwise, to remove 
the seat of government temporarily to 
“Shawnee Manual Labor School,” (or 
Mission) and hither the assemblypro- 
ceeded. After this, receiving* bill for 
the establishment of a ferry at the town 
of Kickapoo, the Governor refused to

for reason of refusal not anything ob-

Fht Fugitives Still iu Custody of the 
U S. Marshal. 

As we notified our readers yesterday, j 
a writ of hapeas corpus was issued on 
Monday afternoon by Judge Burgoyne j 
to the Sheriff, but which, upon exami- j 
nation, was of about as much *se to 
that functionary as so much waste pa- ! 
per would have been. The writ, in- j 
stead of being addressed to the U. S. ] 
Marshal, was merely directed to the 
Sheriff, instructing him to deliver the | 
fugitives before him. Now, this was *o 
eggregiously abpurd that even our lim- 
ited law experience was sufficient to 
prove conclusively to our sense the ut- 
ter u*elesBness of the document, and so 
it turned out, far long after the judge 
who issued the writ was posting on the 
lightning train of the Little Miami to 
consult, as it is said. Governor Chase 
upon his future proceedings, the Sheriff 
discovered the error, and candidly ac- 
knowledged to the Marshal thaUbe held 
no legal jurisdiction over the runaways. 

It was funny to read in some of our 
cotempcraries yesterday, who adverted 
to this affair, flaming notices of "the 
Sheriff triumphant,” and sr.ch like noti- 
fications of the defeat of the representa- 
tive of old Uncle Sam, when ia fact, 
had the Commissioner felt disposed, the 
parties could have been bought before 
him, and in all probababilily, but for 
the charge of murder now pending, have 
been returned to their owners without 
reference to this famous writ of habeas 
corpus, about which so much cry has 
been raised and so little wool produced. 
But neither the United States Commis- 
sioner nor Marshal felt disposed to 
avail themselves of official ignorance, 
and so the hearing of the case has been 
postponed until this morning, when it 
will assuredly come up before Commis- 
sioner Pendery. In the meantime we 
commend the attention of our fellow cit- 
izens who take an interest in this case to 
the following decision of the Supreme 
Court of the United States. 

“PrijrK vs. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 
(XIV Peters. 539.)— The clause in the Constitution re- 
plates the existence of a positive, unqualified right ou 
the part of the owner of the slave, which no State law or 
regulation can in any w,iy qualify, regulate, control or 
restrain. Any law or regulation which interrupts, lim- 
its, delays, or postpones the rights of the owner to ths 
immediate command of his service or labor operates pro 
tato a discharge of the slave therefrom. The question 
can never be how much he ia d scharged from, but wheth- 
er be i3 discharged from any service hy the natural ar.d 
necessary operation of the State laws or State regulations. 
The question is not one of quantity and degree, but of 
withholding or controlling the incidents of a positive 
right. 



Coronsr Menzic-s immediate hastened 
to the spot where the dead body of the 
child was found, and summoned a jury, 
when, after exaiiweing five of the par- 
ties who first buri?4 into the house, nsl 
one of whom, however, could throw any 
light as to whether the father or mother 
of the child had committed the bloody 
deed, the further heat ing of the testimo- 
ny was postponed until this morning. 

The only information derived from 
the oldest boy, ia reply to who had in- 
jured him and the other children, is

Assault upon Horace Grselev. 

Washington, Jan. 29. 

As Mr. Greeley, of the New York 
Tribune, was coming from the Capitol 
this afternoon, he was attacked by Mr. 
Rust, of Arkansas, who with his fists 
inflicted several blows on Mr. Greeley s 
head, and afterwards as he was ap- 
proaching the National Hotel, Mr. Rust 
struck his arm severely with a stick. 
The assault, it is presumed, was incon- 
sequence of certain strictures in a M ash- 
ington letter in the Tribune, of Monday, 
on Mr. Rust’s p-oposition in the House 
requiring the candidates for Speaker to 
withdraw from tho contest.

poor corporal of ours won’t last long 
anyhow this way.” Tiie Captain shook 
his head. "My lad,” said hs, "tl.e ship 
scarce make* any way in this head »*a; 
there’ll be no smooth water for the next 
twenty-four hours.” Then God’s mer- 
ey be with him,” said the boy, and he 
turning away. The captain criled »f.er 
him — "C eerily, cheerily, my lad! isn’t 
it ail taut and dry below? and the doc- 
tor’s with your mate; all the ship’s 
comforts are at his service; doe* he 
want anything?” "Faith, an’ it’s not 
long lie’ll want anything,’ was the re- 
pi}'; "ho wont live below at ail at all! 
lie tiever could stand the say by no 
means, even when he wai the man he 
used to be; he says now, an’ it’s all his 
cry, 'give me the fresh air and I’ll die

said the Doctor, who canoe up at this 
moment; “we must have the poor fel- 
low on deck; it’s the only chance; he’ll 
die below.” "Then bring him upon 
the quarter-deck," said the Cap ffin; 
and in a tew minutes, under one of the 
quarter-deck boats, a bed, »» comforta- 
ble as possible under the circumstances, 
was provided. I assisted in his re- 
moval, and when he waa lying on hi* 
bed, with the winds shrieking around 
him and the salt sea foam splashing on 
his face, he revived for a time, and said 
he felt better, and hoped that he should 
still weather the storm. L ascertained 
from hi3 comrade that he had been one 
of the first to enter the Redan on the 
memorable 8th of September; that he 
was amonga'/the number who occupied 
unmolested those enormous woiks, 
hoping momentarily that a rush of rein- 
forcements would come to their aid — 
hoping; until thousand* of Russians,

trench over the glacis 
in several place*. He had r^^sny re- 
ooverad from his wounds when disen- 
tery seized him and now oa the quar- 
ter dock ot the he was dying. 

His face and lips were as pale as wax, 
his eyes sunken in their blackened sock- 
ets, his features sharp and bedewed 
with the damps of death. A tew sick 
•men of the 97th, stood near lnm. "God 
bless you, mv boys!” said he, “and the 
ouli 97th! it’s no use — I’ll never, I’ll 
never see home/ 1 ’ and at the last word, 
his chin fell upon his breast. "hey 
thought he was gone, and ooversd hi* 
lace; but he moved his head again, and 
attempted to raise his hand, now cold 
as ice. The lad before mentioned, a 
six months’ recruit, grasped ths fingers 
so feebly outstretched, and bent over 
him, tl.e tesrs streaming down hi* 
cheeks and mingling with die *prav of 
the sea, which flew around this strange 
bed of death. "Mike,’, said the corpo- 
ral with convulsive energy, hslf raising 
himself, "Mike! they say the 97th ran 
back! Will any man say I did sot do 
my duty? God bl»83 the Queer.! and. 
bless ould Ireland, too!” He fell back, 
and never spoke again. 

In a few hours we were off Scutari, 
and blew off steam whilst ike ship’s 
boat went ashore. Ono of ths hatch- 
ways was lowered into the jolly-boat, 
and on this rude bier rested a figure — 
the unmistakeable outline of death — 
wrapped in a union jack. Tiie sea was 
still running high. “Turn the hatch- 
way round,” cried the Captain , “or you- 
have him overboard.” Tiieboy in the boat 
clasped the something in the union jack 
with one arm, and with the other turned 
the hatchway round. He lifted him 
tenderly. So light was his frame now 
(three months ago a Redan hero) that, 
the cabin boy of fifteen years raised him 
and laid him down as if he had been a 
child. The b  at put off towards the 
shore in a heavy surf, and it appeared 
every moment as ifsho would bo swamp- 
ed. I thought I had seen death in eo 
many forms that nothing could ever 
touch me again; but the misory and 
grief of the young recruit, the faithful 
comrade was a 6ight no mortal nsrve 
could endure without the relief of tears. 
Ho stood leaning over the ship’s lad- 
der; his eager glance strained after the 
receding boat as she encountered each, 
threatening wave, weeping ail the time 
as if he were beside a household grave 
at home, h caring the dull earth fall upon 

thecoffin. \V. C.

to this subject, will be found in the Con-

the facts and figures. 

The Fugitive Slave Case.

JfyOur neighbor of the Citizen is 
greatly offended that we should express

knucks” — we feel profoundly grateful 
to our neighbor that he has concluded 
“,o allow these gentlemen to rail on as 
much as they please.” This extraordi- 
nary concession on his part is as won- 
derful as it is gratifying at this particu- 
lar juncture, when all his associates are 
breathing nothing but vengeance upon 
the democratic party. We feel deeply 
this forbearance of the lion, in_thus al- 
lowin'* us, who are but mice, to run 

O 

over his gigantic paws withjmpunity, 
and brush his beard and burrow in his 
shaggy mane, without notice or moles- 
tation, while other and larger game 
would be immediately chastised for dar- 
ing even to appear in his royal pres- 
ence. 

In order that our readers may more 
fully appreciate the obligations wo are 
under to our neighbor for his forbear- 
extract from tLe last 

t rea- 

t lum, 1 1 1 til it am uge«l

guage used.’’ 

We are gratified to learn from the | 
above extract, lliat our neighbor’s pon- I 
derous intellect and peifect equanimity | 
of mind are not in the least disturbed ! 
by our puny railings. We are much 
edified at being thus' informed that we 
have, in our immediate vicinity, a Gib- 
raltar rock, upon which we may incess- 
antly hammer with our mallet of cork- 
wood, without affecting its massive s®- 
liiity or even disintegrating its surface. 

Again our neighbor says: 

•‘The fact In thm about th- only principle 'hey poiaes 8

» Tit they have ia al u»-. of the kn -w nothing*. We are 
not ditpoted to d^uive tliem of either tlieir principle* or 
t-hclr vocation.” 

He is not mistaken in regard to a 
leading sentiment of the democratic 
party. Ho only mistakes its object- 
Democrats do not hate know nothings, 
but their principles. A very clever and 
gentlemanly person may entertain very 
objectionable sentiments. The truth of 
this proposition is amply justified in the 
case of our neighbor. That he is both 
clever and gentlemanly is sufficiently 
manifest in the very condescending man- 
ner in which he allows us to do as we 
please. That his sentiments are very 
objectionable is equally clear to any 
one who is a regular reader of the Citi- 
zen. We shall endeavor to profit byf 
these excellent and amiable qualities o 
our neighbor. 



T::e Lcuiiviile Jcu its!. 

inis paper, now the ablest, most fear- 
less and unscrupulous organ of the 
know nothing party in Kentucky, was 
oaee au able and most powerful oppo- 
nent of the- whole doctrine of secret po- 
litical organization. About ten years 
ago a secret pol ftical party sprang up 
in Louisville, possessing nearly the 
jsamo system of organization, and advo- 
I eating about the same doctrines of the 
'present know nothing party. This se- 
cret union was them weak, numberin'* 

O 

only about twenty persons. Prentice 
’took ground against it, and in a most 
masterly argument, exposed their so- 
phistries and demonstrated tho danger- 
jous tendencies of sscret political parties 
jin all organized governments. As a 
sample of his reasoning upon that oc- 
casion, we refer loan article on the out- 
side of to-day’s paper, taken from the 
Louisville Journal of Oct. 28th, 1846 

It will be 6eeu that Prentice then 
took the same viewofthe question, that 
tho democratic party does now. He de- 
claied that secret political organizations 
“Are both unnecessary and dangerous.’’ 
lor avowing tit® cams sentiment now, 
men are called all sorts of bad names! 
and are considered as offering personal 
insults to the members of the know 
nothing party. Even Prentice not only 
repudiates the sentiments he once en- 
tertained, but abuses the democratic par- 
ty for adopting them. His change of 
opinion, combined with his incessant a- 
buseof those who sympathize with his 
former sentiments, leave but one con- 
struction to be placed upon his con- 
duct. He was dishonest in the express 
sion of the sentiments contained in the 
article alluded to, or else he is so now. 
An honest change of sentiment would 
be accompanied by a considerable meas- 
ure of charity for those who had not yet 
been able to goo the subject iu its new 
light. 

We still say as Prentice said in 1846, 
“That it is wrong, unwise and dangerous 
to establish secret political societies 
where diecusaion is as free as light and 
air.’’ When he made that statement, 
the secret political society of which he 
spoke numbered some twenty persons. 

W hen lie changed his mind on this 
subject, and took ground in favor of se- 
crecy in politics, the society numbered 
its thousands, and had absorbed a largo 
portion of the party with which ho had 
been accustomed to act. He was no 
pioneer in tty ranks of Hindooism, but 
came in among the stragglers, after the 
army had been organized, preferring to 
swallow his own words and do violence 
to his own convietions of right, rather 
than to join the democratic party and 
forfeit the many good things which the 
new party temptingly held out to him. 

IIo has been well paid for acting the 
traitor to his own conscience, if money 
and flattery cau compensate a man for 
the loss of his self-respect. The know 
nothing eounoilshave taxed their purses 
to extend the circulation of the Journal, 
and have taxed brains in order to 
indite complimentary letters to its editor. 
These letters he has modestly spread be- 
fore the public, in the columns of the 
Journal, with as much freedom as if 
they were not filled with the most ful- 
some flattery and exaggerated com 
mendntion. Some men live too long for 
their own fame, and the editor of tie 
Journal seems Fkely to rank in this 
category. It is better not to write at 
all, than to take positions on all sides of 
all subjects. 

We propose giving a number of these 
extracts from the Journal, in order to 
show what a steady luminary it has 
been, and how safely the know nothing 
party may rely upon it in the day of 
their greatest need. Reduce this party 
again to twenty, and the Journal will 
come back to its old sentiments, and de- 
nounce all secret political societies as 
"wrong, unwise and dangerous." 



Liberty or Death. 



; The State Treasurer in a Fight. 

“We understand,’’ says the Cinciana- j By an act of the Kentucky Legisla- 
li Commercial, “that Kelso, author of] ture, approved March 9th, 185-1, an al- 
‘ Danger in the Dark,’ is dramatising uu- , lowanceof §500 per annum was grant- 
dor the above title, the late exciting ed to the State Treasurer, to enable him 



M ion. giving f cqueff 
IIo is earnestly and wi 



tragedy, of the slave mother murder- 
ing her child." 

Our readers will remember that 
‘Danger in the Dark’ has been one of 
“Sam’s” favorite text-books, and has 
been industriously circulated by him a- 
mong the ignorant and bigoted, to ex- 
cite their jealousy and hatred of our 
Catholic fellow citizens. If we are not 
mistaken, this egregious piece of patrio- 
tism is at this time advertised in our 
public places by mammoth cuts, repre- 
senting a fiendish looking giant dressed 
in pontifical regalia, bearing aloft tbe 
Cross and Keys crushing the American 
Eagle and the Goddess of Liberty under 
his feot, and crimsoning our national 
ensign with their blood. We suppose 
that “Liberty or Death” will be herald- 
ed by pictures of Uncle Tom’s martyr- 
dom, slave drivers burning negroes a 
the stake, the “Slave Oligarchy” forc- 
ing heroic mothers to murder their own 
offspring, and other truthful representa- 
tions, in which Mr. Kelso will be about 
as just to the Southern people as lie 1ms 
been to the Catholics. How would our 
Pope-fearing Iriends on this side of the 
Ohio like to catch this patriotic aboli- 
tionist prowling around their negro 
quarters after night-fnll ? Would it not 
remind them of real “Danger in the 
Dark.” 



Another Escape of Slaves. 

Eight slaves made their escape from 
this State on Thursday night, among 
whom were four belongin'* to Mr. A. K. 
Gaines, one of the claimants in the fu- 
gitive slave case at that time ponding in 
Cincinnati. In recording the fact, on 
Saturday, the Commercial said : “They 
are ere this beyond tbe reach of cap- 
ture.” The Commercial no doubt was 
well posted in regard to their move- 
ments. 



to employ the services of a clerk to aid 
him in the performance of his duties. — 
It seems that the sum was not ueeded; 
for Mr. Wintersmith has continued to 
pei form all the duties of the office with- 
out the assistance of a clerk. He has 
nevertheless drawn the §500 per annum, 
and added it to the 81,700 which is al- 
lowed for the Treasurer’s salary; 'I 1118 
raising the salary of an office uot at all* 
laborious to the round sum of $2200,00. 
In calling attention to these foots’ Se De 
Kay, the correspondent of the Iouis- 
villo Courier, said that Wintersmith had 
acknowledged having appropriated the 
$500 to his own private use without pre- 
text or authority. He has since ac- 
knowledged this to be an error; his in- 
formant having misapprehended the 
conversation in which he understood 
Mr. Wintersmith to make the acknowl- 
edgement. Mr. Wintersmith has de 

O 

manded of the proper authorities an in- 
vestigation of his official conduct. 

In the meantime the press is investi- 
gating his conduct in assailing Se De 
Kay. It looks very much like an at- 
tempt to stifle investigation into the con- 
duct of public officers by the press. — 



the rencontre.: 

1 was passing into the State House, and when opposite 
the office of the President of tho Board of Iotcrnal Hu 
proTcment, was called by -Mr. Wiuteramith. He ex- 
tended his land, passed the salutations of the morning, 
and asked mo to step in the room. I compiled, and he 
closed the door, lie then exhibited the obnoxious arti- 
cle in tile Courier, and asked me if I was Uie author- 
I replied affirmatively, and he rejoined with an oath that 
it was false. I remarked in answer that I understood it 
to be true, whereupon he began the assault. This pleas- 
ant little scrimmage lasted about half a minute, when Dr. 
U:l"eurd President of the Board of Internal Improvc- 
mefit, interfered, and the hostile parties were separated. 
Wintersmith then pulled a paper from his pocket and 
peremptorily ordered me to sign it. This paper was a 
brief acknowledgment of having wrilteu what was false 
concerning tlie said Wintersmith. As au alternative, 
pistols and other direful consequences were threatened, 
with an intimation that 1 should be immolated on the 
spot. Notv, these suggestions were not very pleasant, 
and especially since Wtntersmith lad brought a friend 
and was prepared for tile encounter. 1 declined signing 
any pa|ier, or making any retraction, and then ensued 
another gust of bravado and threats. Very soon. Sena- 
tors Harris, llaggin and Ripley, with Mr. W. K. Thom- 
as, lull ing heard of the difficulty, came in. Their pres- 
ence immediately put another aspect on Uie mutter; and 
after the writing of a great many statements and correc 
tions, all of which I refused to sign,  lr. Wintersmith 
and his friend withdrew, leaving myself and friends tlie 
room. And thus ended the hostilities. The only men 
ument or token of this engagement that I have, is a 
slight scratch, a quarter of au inch long, under tlie left 
eye. I have not heard whether the Treasurer has even

Congressional Proceedings. 

Washington, Jon. 30. 

House. — Mr. Crawford offered a reso- 
lution providing for the election of Speak- 
er by States: each State having one vote. 
He said the House was absolutely bring- 
ing itself into cunlemot. 

There was less anxiety on the part of 
the people relative to tbe organization 
now, than there was four weeks ago. — 
He appealed to the States Rights men to 
sustain his pn position. 

Mr. Todd remarked that the proposi- 
tion was repugnant to the constitution of 
tho House. The members were here 
to represent the people, and not inde- 
pendent sovereignities. It was also 
unjust because it would give a power to 
o*gari ze the House. 

If the gentlemen were anxious to or- 
ganize, they should give way to the 
great majority of tbe North. 

On motion of Mr. T-dd the resolution 
was laid on the table — 135 yeas to 72 
nays. 

Mr. Clingman offered a resolution pro- 
viding for the election of Speaker by 
plurality, if there shall be no choice 
made during the next three trials by viva 
voce. 

Clingman explained that if the resolu- 
tion was adopted, a majority must con- 
cur in the election. 

It is necessary now to organize after 
two months spent in vain expedients, 
and it would devolve upon the American 
party to make choice between Orr and 
Banks.

Death in a Sleigii. — I t is stated 
that a young lady of Cumberland coun-

She had complained to her companion 
early in the evening of being very cold, 
but there being no public-house near 
them they did not stop. Soon after, on 
coming to a tavern, she refused to get 
out, saying that she felt very comforta-

shortly afterwards expired.

George Bennett, alias George Huffner, 
was hung at Locisville on Friday last, 
for the murder of Mullen. He profess- 
ed to be penitent, and to have found 
peace with his Maker, through the met its 
of the blessed Savior; but lie protested 
to the last that he was innocent of the 
murder of Mullen. He admitted that 
lie and another robbed him, and left him 
lying dead-drunk in an alley; but de 
nied that he knew any thing about his 
death, or placing his body in the river 
where it was found. He admitted also 
that he had lived a life of crime, espec- 
ially theft and robbery. The following- 
is his last declaration as written by him

Illinois Central Railroad Land 
Sales. — The New York Tribune of the 
18th, conveys the following informa- 
tion on this subject: 

The total transactions amount to $5,- 
598,577, which is largely in advance of 
the expectations of the managers, both 
in tha aggregate and in the price per 
acre. The average price of the lands 
appropriated to the construction bonds 
is 811 73 per acre, and the free aud 
bonds §11 54 per acre. The lowest 
class of construction bond lands sold at 
§10 20 cents per acre; which is §2 20 
per acre above the maximum price fixed 
by the schedule. The aggregate sales 
oi lands have been 528,863 acres, leav- 
ing 2.C66.136 acres unsold, which at 
the average of the sales already made 
would yield about §24,000,000 making 
an aggregates ol §29,500,000. The 
remaing lands, hewever.are held "higher 
than the average of the 6ats which have 
been made, and a considerable portion 
have been withdrawn forconsiderablyad-

rality resolution, but tlie House, by foi 
ty-five majority, decided the motion out 
of order. 

Mr. Payne moved that the House 
adjourn. [Hisses in the gallery follow- 
ed.] 

Mr. Orr said if the House was to be 
organized by hisses from the galleries, 
he would move to clear them, excepting 
those occupied by ladies. 

Mr. Payne made an effectual motion 
to recind the plurality resolution, and 
the House then proceeded to ballot for 
Speaker, with the following result; 
Banks, 102; Aiken, 93; Fuller, 14. — 
Messrs. Barclay and Hickman, demo- 
crats, voted for Mr. Wells, and Messrs. 
Dunn, Harrison, Moore and Scott for 
Mr. Campbell, of Ohio — necessary to a 
choice, 108. 

The next vote, with the exception 
that Mr. Fuller lost one, was the same 
as th® first, and the third vote the same 
as th® second, except tliat Mr. Aiken 
lost one. 

Mr. Fuller, of Penn., repeated what 
he had said on two former occasions 
namely, that he was not, and had no de- 
sire to be a candidate. One hundred

Washington, Jan. 31. 

House. — Cox =ubmitted a preamble, in 
the true spirit of patriotism, that the 
members should waive some of their po- 
litical principles, in order to secure an 
election of Speaker, reserving the right 
to insist upon them practically hereaf- 
ter. 

A resolution annexed, proposes that 
all who thus agree vote for Orr, and if 
h* be not elected, then vote for Fuller 
of Penn., inviting ail conaei-vat'Ve men to 
unit® in this arrangement, with the reser- 
vation herein contained. 

Clingman, in explaining his reasons 
for offering the plurality resolution ves- 
ter..ay, said, nothing was larther fr®m Ilia

Mr. McMullen vindicated the Demo-

he was not the choice of the majority of 
this body; on no other terms or condi- 
tions would he take that position. 

Mr. Barclay remarked that he had 
been adverse to anything like a coalition 
with know notliingism, whether it came 
from the north or the south. lie asked 
Mr. Aiken whether he stood on tha 
democratic platform, and whether he 
had not written a letter to Humphrey 
Marshall, making pledges to the south- 
ern wing of the know nothings. 

Mr. Aiken — I am not a candidate. 
If my fiiends think proper to place m 
in tho chair I will sc: ve them to the best 
of my ability. 

Mr. II. Marshall — I have only to say 
tliat Mr. Aikens has addressed me no I 
note whatever. [Applause and cries j 
of “Call the roll!” while the most intense 
excitement prevailed.] 

Mr. A. K. Marshall, during the call- 
ing of the roll, congratulated his Amer- 
ican friends that they had fought the 
good fight aud conquered. There was 
no democratic candidate in the field 
with the offensive caucus platform. It 
was in performing his duty as a patriot 
and not as apartizan, that he voted for 
Mr. Aiken. 

Mr. Walker voted the same way, es- 
teeming Mr. Aiken a man with no stains 
of mere partizanism. 

After explanation the roll was called 
amid unusual excitement, and the re- 
sult was announced by the Clerk as

Richardson called attention to the 
fact that while one American ( Marshall) 
proposed a union, two others of that 
party, Whitfley and Cullen, said they 
could vote for no Democrat. Frankness 
required him to say that if the National 
Americans desire a connexion, they must 
conte to the Democrats. 

Marshall withdrew his resolution. 

.Stewart offered a resolution with the 
concurrence, if no Speaker shall be 
elected before the 15th of February, 
the House adjourn until the 15th of 
May. 

This was tabled, and the House vot-

count Esterhazy, that he was not author- 
iz«d to enter into a discussion; but if the 
note was not accepted unconditionally 
■before the 18th, he and ihe Austrian Em- 
bassy must leave St. Petersburg. 

To prevent this, count Nesselrode com- 
municated with Vienna direct, and Prince 
Gortschakoff, at Vienna, had a talk with 
count Buol, in which the former produced 
a memorandum, expressing the general 
inclination of Russia to negotiate, but 
proposing certain alterations. 

Count Buol received the document, 
but inasmuch r.s it did not contain an 
unconditional acceptance of propositions 
Austria could not reply without the con- 
currence of France and England. 

The ambassadors of these powers ac- 
cordingly sent to Loudon and Paris, and 
received in reply, despat lies stating that 
the Western Powers had no motive to 
change their decision, already carefully 
considered, and further, that if Russia 
did not accept by the 18th, count Ester- 
hazy and the Austrian Legation would 
leave St. Petersburg, and Austria seek 
the armed co-operation of the German 
Diet. 

Vienna papers represent affairs as 
most serious and alarming, and that all

and Walker. 

The oath was administered to Whit- 
field the pro-slavery delegate from Kan- 
sas and he was allowed to take his seat. 



Dr. Kane 

The February number of Graham’s 
Magazine contains a long and well writ- 
ten sketch of Dr. Kane, by Dr. Wm. 
Elder, which is a well deserved tribute 
to the enterprising character and useful 
labors of this gentleman, whose romantic 
adventures and philanthropic enterpri- 
ses form an honorable chapter in the 
history of this country, as well as in his 
own life. Dr. Kaue went a surgeon in 
the first American embassy to China, 
and while absent explored the Phillip- 
pian Island on foot. He was the fiist 
man who descended into the crater of 
Tael; lowered more than a hundred feet 
by a bamboo rope, from the over-hang- 
ing oJLff, and, clambering down some 
seven hundred more through the scoriae 
he made a topographical sketch of the 
interior of this great volcano. Before 
he returned from this trip, he had as- 
cended the Himalayas, and triangulated 
Greece on foot; ho had visited Ceylon, 
the Upper Nile, and all the mythologic 
region of Egypt. He has been in Airi- 
est; was sent to Mexico during the war, 
with despatches to Gen. Scott; was em- 
ployed in the Coast Survey, in the Gulf 
of Mexico, and finally has penetrated

HOLLOWAY’S PILLS. 

WHY AHEWE SICK? 

I T has been th* lot of th ? human race to he weigh 
ed down by disease uni suffering. HOLLO- 
WAY'S PILLS are specially adapted to the relief of 
tiie WEAK, the NE RYOT’S, the DELICATE, and 
the INFIRM, of all climes, ages, sexes, and consti- 
tutions. Professor Holloway personally superin- 
tends the manufacture of hi* medicines in the Uni- 
ted States, and oflers th*m to a free and enlightened 
people, ns the best remedy the world ever saw for 
the removal of disease. 



THESE TILLS PURIFY THE BLOOD. 

These famous Pills *re expressly combined to 
operate on the stomach, the liver, the kidneys, the 
lungs, the skin, and the bowels, correcting any de- 
rangement to their functions, purifying the blood. 
th - very fountain of life, and thus curing disease in 
all its forms. 

DYSPEPSIA AND LIVER COMPLAINT. 

Nearly half the human race have taken thes? 
Pill*. It has been proved in all parts «»f the world, 
that nothing has been found equal to them in cases 
of disorders of the liver, dyspepsia, and stomach 
complaints generally. They soon give a healthy 
tone to these organs however much deranged, und 
when all other means have failed. 

GENERAL DEBILITY, ILL HEALTH. 

Many of the most d'-spotic Governments have 
opened their Custom Houses to the introduction of 
these Pills, that they may become the medicine of 
the masses. Learned Colleges admit that this medi- 
c.ne is the Pest remedy ever known for persons of 
delicate health, or where the system has been impair- 
ed. as its invigorating properties never fail to afford 
relief. 

FEMALE COMPLAINTS. 

No female, young or old, should be without this 
celebrated medicine. It corrects and regulates the 
monthly courses at all periods, acting in many cases 
like a charm. It is also the best and safest medicine 
that oan'-be given to Children of all ages, and for any 
complaint; consequently no family should be without 
it. 



Holloway’s Fills are the best remedy 
known in the world lor tho 
following diseases : 

Asthma, Debility, Venerial Affcc- 

Bowel Complaint Fever and Ague, Worms cf all 
Coughs, Female Compl’ts, kinds. 

Colds. Headaches. Stone and Gravel, 

Chest diseases, Indigestion, Secondary Symp- 

Influenza. Inward Weak- 

Inflammation, ness, 

PUe*t Liver Compl’nts.

would treat the subject-

i ii-.ro have been speculations of all 
go :s, some as to how he would be r«- 
caived on his first appearance on 
plat 'inn; som3 
which he 
whether ho would prove plucky to the 
Southern or plastery to the Northern 
predictions; aud a great many as to 
which portion of the community would 
be most largely represented at the lec- 
ture. at the rate of fifty cents per head 
— the pro-slavery, the abolitionist, or 
those who don’t care a snap either side, 
and merely wish to see the Honorable 
Senator. 

All, howurer, were agreed that the 
advent of Mr. Toombs, coming as it 
w ire to board the lion in his den, and 
that too at the said lion's special invita- 
tion, was, to use a homely but appropri- 
ate word, "funny;” and as there are e- 
nosgh in Boston who like to have fun 
no matter of what kind, whether it be 
in religion, politics or prize fighting, tht 
result was as might have been expected 
the tremont temple was crowded to ex- 
cess this evening. Those, however, 
who wont with the expectation of see- 
ing a disturbance were disappointed, 
for with but very slight exceptions the 
dissent from the opinions expressed was 
manifested by a respectable silence 
wluie throughout the lecture there were 
many passages which received hearty 
appl.'iuse. 

At half-past seven Mr. Toombs ap- 
peared upon the platform, accompanied 
by Hon. Win. Appleton, Nathaniel Ap- 
pleton, Esq , ar.d some of the committee 
who have been instrumental in getting 
up the the course of Returns. He was 
greeted with applause on his entrance, 
and without any introduction took the 
stand for the purpose of commencing 
his remarks. Oadoing so a single hiss 
was heard from the centre of the ha.ll, 
which was quashed immediately by 
cheers from ail parts. But upon the 
subsiding of the latter, the same snaky 
demonstration continued. T\ lis, how- 

ever, was soon siienced by Mr. iZoombs 
himseif, who, perfectly at home, remark- 
ed that it made no dilference with him. 
People migntohoose their own moans to 
express their feelings. Good humor 
prevailed, and the speaker proceeded. 

It is piobable, said he, that the ma- 
jority of the sentiments advanced on 
this occasion would be oppossd to the 
honest convictions of most of those 
present, but ho trusted that what might 
be said would tend in a manner to mod- 
ify the asperity that now prevails be- 
tween the North and the South. What 
he had to say would be expressed with 
all respect and deference to the opinions 
of others, but w.th firmness and sincer- 
ity. afhe first portion of his lecture 
was ocoupied entirely with the history

known. The progeny is, however, pret-

beneficial. The people of the North 
draw indi.ect compaiisons in regard to 
the condition of the negro in the two 
sections of the country, both as to the 
action of the individual to himself and 
to the whites, comparisons, which, 
when drawn, have never been sanction- 
ed by reason or justice. You say that 
all the slaves should be emancipated 
immediately, and that no harm can be 
done by the act, to prove which you 
cite the condition of your free colored 
population. But how would it be if the 
million of inhabitants of Massachusetts 
consisted of 600,000 free llac.ks aud 
500,000 whites ? Would your boasted 
prosperity be as it is now, and would not 
there be some disposition to look after 
the interest of the African in a different 
direction from that at present? Your 
prosperity as a free State, is not that 
you are exempt from slavery; it is ow- 
ing to the absence of the race from your 
midst. When our country first started 
the slaves were not fitted for self-gov- 
ernment. They might be or might not 
in the future. There are no instances in 
history that will prove that the African 
race ever took the first step towards self- 
civilization, but there are multitudes of 
cases to prove that when once elevated 
in the human scale — being left to them- 
selves — their tendency was to fall back 
into barbarism. The principles of our 
government are based upon the axiom 
that Democracy is a government of men, 
republicanism a government of laws. — 
Massachusetts adopted this sentiment 
at the outset, and so did Georgia. The 
laws therefore must be the governing 
principle; and as negroes were unfit to 
make laws for themselves, as experience 
has shown, the Southern whites, having

of the Constitution of the United States, 
and the consideration of the elements 
which led to its formation, and the op- 
inions of the men who contributed to 
its oonstruction. He maintained that 
this instrument doe9 not contain one 
single article that tended to prohibit 
slavery, but that, on the contrary, the 
institution was protected by it, though 
of course, not prompted especially. — 
The rght to hold slaves is left to the 
people of each State by ts provis ons 
aud no one S!*t9 could 1 dictate to the 
other what they should do n the matter. 
II. story tells us that the Const tut on 
was formed by the consent of thirteen 
slaveholding colonies, and at a time 
when the slave trade was practised as a 
brunch of lawful commerce. There 
were anti-slavery men in tho3e days as 
well as now. Mason, ofVirgnia, Thos. 
Jefferson, and others equally great, had 
advocated the aboi l on of slavery; but 
it could not be done. It had been forc- 
ed upon them by England, and emanci- 
pation was morally impo3s ble; and un- 
der existing circumstances it is so at 
the present day. I am not responsible 
for the Constitution as it stands now pro 
tecting slavery. The South is not re- 
sponsible. It is your fathers — my fath- 
ers — the founders of this glorious re- 
public, that are responsible. They made 
the. constitution as it is, allowing each 
State to have its own inst Unions, to 
hold slaves or no!, as they saw fit. And 
I think they did wisely. If the Consti- 
tution is wrong, endeavor by all means 
to change it. If it conflicts with ycur 
views as to religion, politics, justice or 
morality, use your energies towards 
making it confotm to your standard. 
The speaker asserted that in fact the for- 
mation of the Const'iutien increased the 
number of slaves, and that, too, by the 
consent of Massachusetts and every vo- 
ter in New England. This was proved 
by the provision that the slave trade 
should exist twenty years from the time 
of its adoption, until 1801, and that 
there was au extension to 1 808. During 
the time large numbers of slaves were 
imported, and a rapid increase was the 
consequence; and all this, too, brought 
about by Massachusetts votes, and a- 
gaiust the protestations of many South- 
ern anti-slavery advocates. Laws made 
since then by wise statesmen also sus- 
tained the views of Mr. Toombs, and 
an allusion was made to the Fugitive 
Slave law. 

Here there v,i 3 an interruption bv 
hisses from various parts of the hall, 
which were taken by the Hon. Senator 
with  h« utmost solf-posie 8 sioa and 
coolness. 



them with them, must make laws for 
them. 

The slavery of the American race 
has been existent with their creation. — 
Othei races may have for a time been 
compelled to bear the yoke, but they 
only are the ones that have always been 
subject to masters. So far as the South 
is eoncerned, the slavery institution has 
made them happy. So far as the free 
dom of the North is concerned, it has 
made them degraded. 

The former and present condition of 
Hayti and Jamaica were alluded to in 
support of the position of the speaker 
and in remarking upou the Iroedom of 
the negro in the northern States he 
said : 

It is true that he is lord of himsol 
and his heritage. But is it not a hem 
age of woe, excluded from all civil rights 
with but few exceptions, and looked up 
on with contempt almost universally 
llis history is written upon the records 
of the jails and penitentiaries. Mr 
Toombs contended that the South was 
right in the belief that equality in the 
two races is impossible, and therofor 
restraint was neoessary. The laws of 
the South gave to the slaves great p: iv 
leges. I do not pretend, said he, that 
all are granted that should be, but earn 
estly hope that soon all that are prop 
should be allowed to them. I say this 
in Boston — 1 will 6av it in Georgia. — 
The most enthusiastic applause greeted 
this remark. 

The conclusion of the address of Mr. 
Toombs was mainly a consideration of 
the condition of the South in a commer- 
cial point of view, and he drew a far 
more favorable picture of its condition 
than many who pretend that the peculiar 
institution of that section of the United 
States is dragging it down to destruc- 
tion. At the conclusion of the lecture 
three cheers — qualified of eourse — were 
given for the Senator; and as far as could 
be judged from the expressions heard in 
the crowd while leaving the hall, there 
was a general expression of approbation 
towards the lecturer, not of his opinions, 
but of his candor and bearing. The 
audience dispersed quietly, although oue 



family for *ne mother. 

To such associations as these we 
conceive that every right-minded and 
well-thinking citizen must, on full re- 
flection, find himself earnestly and con- 
sistently opposed. They are both dan- 
gerous and unnecessary. We should 
not be surprised at the formation of'such 
associations in Laly, Austria, or Swe- 
den, when a bigoted tyranny crushes 
the first development of free and liber- 
opiniou. Thure a natural right *f 
mental expansion and discussion is de- 
ied the mind, and men are justified in 
protesting the holiest of the right* of 
the altar and the pen, by silently array- 
ng that power which is suddenly to 
ndicate their freedom. 

Do*» a similar state of things exist 
in this country? It were a libel on a 
land hallowed by the holiest freedom to 
say it, In connection with this w* as- 
sert that it is wrong, unwise and dan- 
gerous to establish secret political soci- 
eties where discussion is as free as light 
and air. If the principles, the estab- 
lishment of wliieh is sought, are truths, 
men here pbsses3 minds and the nation 
is not dishonestly bigoted. If the prin- 
ciples will not bear the light of discus- 
sion they are Dot truths, and to form * 
ociety for their propagation is to at 
tempt to force or cheat the people iuto 
their snpport. A secret society is es 
tablished. It remains silent as th* 
sepulchre as to its objects, and enforces 
and preserves its secrecy by the obliga- 
ion of au oath or a solemn promise, 
which are the same to an honorable 
man. The candidate knows nothing 
of its real ends (else, it were not a secret 
society, or at best a very ridiculous o«o, 
the very existence of which would be a 
standing joke) until he lias thus bound 
himself. 

Then, should he disapprove of the 
objects of the society, he cannot detatch 
himself from it without incurring th* 
enmity of a powerful and secret organi- 
zation — an snnvity which he must re- 
sist alone, for he cannot as an honor- 
able man revoal the character of the as- 
sociation, and without such revelation 
no assistance conld be efficient. If the 
fascination of seoresy and association 
are insidiously held .out to him, or if a 
friend induces him to join, he is caught 
in th» fowler’s net almost beyond es- 
cape. Such political means are unwor- 
thy of a thinking age, a free country, 
aud a high hearted humanity. Other 
secret societies allege the dispensation 
of charity and the necessity of guarding 
it as their justification. To this a po- 
litical society caasot reso|^ it- is cs- 

tain ends, and must require money, not 
give it. We say it is a faction or a plot 
in contradistinction to a party. A par- 
ty is essentially open to view, not secret 
in its machinations. W hone ver political 
union becomes secret it ceases to be a 
combination or a party, and becomes a 
faction or a cabal. In all history there 
is no inslar.ee of such an association, 
unless conceived for the purpose of 
forcible revolution, and lhat surely is 
neither needed nor designed here, but 
dangerous and destructive. The Jaco- 
bins were such an association; and their 
history is written in blood and desola- 
tion. Secret political associations have 
torn from Spain the very heart of her 
life, and made it quiver in unendurable 
agony. The mere fact of a political as- 
sociation being secret, shows that it has 
not. a free and hearty sympathy with th* 
people. To the theory aud practice of 
our government it is irrevocably op- 
posed. Every individual is expected to 
canvass men and measures whose char- 
acter is darkly hidden beneath a solemn 
and sworn secresy! Secrecy in a po- 
litical association is prima facie evidence 
of wrong. 

We consider the principle of this 



richest portion of the State of Kentucky.

FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A 



FAMILY PHYSIC. 



ThBRE has lang existed a public demand for a* 
effective purgative pill which could be relied on af 
sure and perfectly safe in its operation. This hag 
been prepared to meet that demand, and an exten- 
sive trial of its virtues has conclusively shown witc 
what success it accomplishes the purpose designed. 
It is easy to make a physical jnll, but not easy to 
, make the beat of all pill * — one which should hav* 

5 none of the objections, but all the advantages, ot 
: every other. This has been attempted here, anl 
! with what success we would respectfully submit to 
I the public decision. It has been unfortunate for 
i the patient hitherto that almost every purgatire 
medicine is acrimonious and irritating to the bow- 
els. This is not. Many of them produce so much 
; griping pain and revulsion in the system as to more 
than countei balance the good to Ye derived from 
them. These pill* produce no irritation or pain, 

1 unless it arise from a previously existing obstruc- 
tion or derangement in the bowels. Being purely 
vegetable, no harm can arise from their use m anv 
j quantity ; but it is better that any medicine should 
| be taken judiciously Minute directions for their 
i use in the several diseases to which they are ap- 
j plicable are given on the box. Among tbe csra- 
| plaints which have been speedily cured by them, we 
; mav mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms 
1 of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Ap- 
| petite, Listlessness, Irritability, Bilious Headache, 

; Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side 
and Loins ; for, in truth, all these are but the con- 
sequence of diseased action in the liver. As an 
aperient, they afford prompt and sure relief in Cos- 
tivcncsR, Piles. Colic, Dysentery, Humor*, Scrof- 
ula and Scurvy, Colds with soreness of the body. 
Ulcers and impurity of the blood ; in short, any 
and every case where a purgative is required. 

Thev have also proaucod some singularly suc- 
cessful cures in Rheumatism, Gout, Dropsy, Gravel, 
Erysipelas, Palpitation of tbe Heart, Pains in the 
Back, Stomach, and Side. They should b* freely 
taken in tbe spring of the year, to purify the blood 
j and prepare the system for the change of seasonc, 
j An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and 
bowels Into healthy action, and restores the appe- 
tite and vigor They purify the blood, and, by their 
stimulant action on the circulatory system, reno- 
vate the strength of the bodv, and restore the 
wasted or diseased energies of tbe whole organism. 
Hence an occasional dose is advantageous, even 
though no serious derangement exists; but un- 
necessary dosing should never be carried too far, 
as every purgative medicine reduces the strength, 
when taken to excess. The thousand cases in which 
a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but 
they suggest themselves to the reason of every 
body; and it is confidently believed this pill will 
answer a better purpose than any thing which ha* 
hitherto been available to mankind. When their 
virtues are once known, the public will no longer 
doubt what remedy to employ when in need of a 
cathartic medicine.

such as might have been well copied by 
one or two of another complexion, who

Preservation of Game. 

The law of Illinois, for the preserva- 
tion cf game, took effect on Tuesday, 
every person in 



the £2d inst. It fines 



eircumfeience of a few secret societies! 
What magician has done this.? It re- 
minds us of a passage of the Arabian 
an Nights, in which, on a bottla’s be- 
ing uncorked, a terrible Genius arises 
out of it, threatens \ery extensive de- 
]n * jStruction, and then quietly sinks back 
into his bottle. lu these secret socie- 
ties the native party will very effectual- 
ly “bottle itself up,” and may be labell- 
ed “warranted not to effervesce.” 

The Louisville Weekly Journal, of 
October 28, 1846, says: 

A gentleman called on us yesterday to 
remonstate with us in regard to what we 
have said about the secret political as- 
sociation in this city, the members of 
which call themselves the “bons-of Lib- 
erty.” We have said ouly what we I

This remedy has won for itself such notoriety 
from its cures of every variety of pulmonary disease^ 
vy j x,u, Til. wc ■ii.M.-rwreu W n„ Wlt ( that it is entirely unnecessary to recount the evi- 
vorvbest, anil also polite and attentive alien- deuces of its virtues in any community where it

fulness, and so numerous the cases of its cures* 
that almost every section of the country abound* 
in persons publicly known, who have been restored 
from alarming and even desperate diseases of the 
lungs by its use. When once tried its superiority 
over every other medicine of its kind is too appar-

known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote 
to employ for the distressing and dangerous affec- 
tions of the pulmonary organs which are incident 
to our climate. And not only in formidable at- 
tacks upon the lungs, but for the milder varieties 
of Colds. Coughs, Hoarseness, &c. ; and for 
Children it is the pleasantest and safest median*
