Such a Bill though it May be satisfactory to shaky demo Crata and afford men who wish to Retreat ground for so doing unless there is something More in it than we now know will not receive the support of the republicans. We will not however on the of any positive information of the character of the Bill speculate on it. We have not been from the beginning Over confident that All the Douglass democrats would stand tire and while we Hope that our auspicious mar a Rove groundless we tear that enough dough head a May be found among them to secure the part age of some Dodge which if not a objection j Able As in Compton will be unjust to the people of Kansas and to the country. The latest news about the doings of committee it con trained in the following dispatch copied from the Tribune Washington correspondence. New Yux april 21. When or.

No greater error could he enter 77 on wednesday of last week we were in a dred. On entering the court House we observed that 8. Allene a. Of Kittery was making an Appeal to the jury in behalf of the Cole roys who were on trial for an attempt to murder. Or. A. Was remarking upon the pernicious influences under which the Boya had been brought up their father having been a drunkard for Yeai to besotted As to be be tial and to lost to the common parental feelings a to be willing to be a voluntary witness against his own offspring and the the question whether a new state added j swered that they were Twenty one year to the american confederation Ahall be a tree on the tame Day in March last. Old or slave slate is the same As to a a whether it shall present the cheery aspect of Busy factories railroads marts of Trade Well tilled acres covered everywhere with the school House and Church or Fields of dread Monotony tilled by hordes of driven and manacled aleve and showing at every Angle the signs of premature decay dilapidated and forsaken like.

Omli Iii la a san kit it or Oil Quot i w wuss a i # trained. The present democratic party has no Mother equally with the father a victim of identity either in name or principle with tin party of which Jeffer on was the that party was the party. Jeffer son net or called himself a Democrat and never called i party the democratic party lie did always Call himself a Republican and always styled Hia party the Republican party. A the democratic party i a pail almost a modern in Ita name As in its principles. In Stead of its history being a the country a his Tori a and instead of its having Quot been in Power forty one of the fifty seven year since the Days of Jefferson a it did not come into exist tace ant it after Jurf freon a death. This statement we know will strike Many intern Crance. The two boy. The oldest we should not think waa More than Twenty one years of Aga were in the prisoners a Box their countenances indicative of that character which immoral training always give and seemingly indifferent to their Fate. Or. A. Said that the act for which they were on trial was committed if they were really guilty of which there was some doubt under the influence of liquor and although a did not pretend to dispute their general bad character yet he hoped the jury would take All the Cir Ith Surprise. It in nevertheless True. The cum stances together in making up their ver party which Jefferson founded and which Tri i Dic the jury brought in a verdict of guilty hich so far As we could observe was received w Ith indifference and subsequently were sen umphred in his election to the presidency in re elected or. Jefferson and afterwards Electr eel James Madison James Monroe and John Junry Adam. Subsequently the Patty w As divided Between or. Adam and Gen. Jackson both of whom were nominated and run a a Republican Quot candidate. And it was not until alter general Jackson s election in 1828, that the a democratic party a As a National part had an existence in Thia coun re. Thea democratic party Quot whoa history according cases of crime tried at this court rum had to the palette a is the country history Quot in to Day therefore in than thirty year old tented to several years to hard labor in the state prison. We were told that the person who waa found guilty in setting Are to the buildings in Shapleigh was when the act waa committed under the influence of rum Aud indeed with a single exception in All the or about the same age a a the whig party which originated at very nearly the same time. The Only history of which the democratic party have reason to be proud is that which derives it Lustre from the name and of a the of Andrew Jackson who gave it the Prestito of i honesty courage and patriotism. With his retirement from the presidency commenced the downward career of a democracy a which has been going More and More downward Ever since. Actuated by no principles or by very bad principles its history from that time Down has been Little eur than an alternation of blunders and crimes. Its aim if aim it had a been to tear Down and obliterate All the old Freedom landmarks Ere it try by the fathers of the Constitution Ami of the Republican party and to set up in their Stead slavery absolute ism and violence. The Republican party a founded by Jef Ferson and illustrated by Madison and Monroe was the Foo of every form of tyranny. It was the advocate of the to Lotical Equality of All men under Law and of the Tinalu liable Righta of All men to life Ltd Luty and the Pursuit of happiness. It had Faith ill the a Copie Aud was pc Anu of the encroachments of government. It to it believed in tree , free speech free thought a free press and a tree country. It hated slavery and sought to Check prohibit and overthrow it. While a a National party it could not reach it in the states it hesitated not to regard it As u great evil which it was the Fiir to duty a the gent ral government to exclude Triever from the territories. Such was the Republican party under it founders. Such were its principles mid it general policy during the first Twenty years of i a i Wistem c. It first deviation w us the adj a Tiou of the Compromise a measure n get More disastrous to the country than to the Republican party which May Date the commencement of it dissolution from the a Lav that Cora pro me Taco gluing the tight of slavery in the territories became a Law. That act worried through an unwilling Congre by the threats and bullying of the slave Power broke the Back of the Republican party is later and Tuoro atrocious acts have since broken the Hacks of the whig and democratic parties. From that hour it commenced to saas�4 n Lew Lautt it to Ltd a til Tell in till Wing and democratic party grew up on its grave. We do not propose to write their history now. Neither of them Learned Wisdom from the past. Neither of them shunned the Rock upon which their predecessor Hail split. They both became the bound vassals of slavery. They both a set need to it ruling the country and planting its learn us feet on the territories of the Union. And both Are gone or a re go ing last to that political grave which know no resurrection. In the mean time the principles of Republican Liec Dom and hatred of tyranny have moved the hearts of the people to cell the Battle Roll anew of All the old Republican party. That party animated by the sane old spirit of hatred to oppress Ion and Devotion to Liberty which stirred the heart of the father is now buckling on Ita Warinor re Olvid to re torn the government to the Early policy of Ita founders and to Realise the Triumph of Thane principles which constituted the soul and spirit of the old party of Jefferson. More or let a to do with them. We had the curiosity to make enquiries Relativo to the increase of crime in our county and Learned that it was nearly four fold greater in 1857, than it was in 1851 and 1855. The jail in the county has been overflowing with criminals and a vast proportion of this increase is directly traceable to the pernicious influences which the almost unrestrained Sale of intoxicating liquors have had Over the Community. The expense which the tax payers Are subjected to growing out of this increase of Chitue a very Large sufficient a by to to cause alarm and Call for some Strin gent Means of Relief. Any person who w ill take the trouble to make the enquiry i 1 Fin 1that seven eighths of All the expense paid bythe Public for the detection and condemnation of criminal originates in Tho intoxicating cup. We merely Nitako mention of those things now that Tho tax payers in our county i every one of whom is called on to pay his pro-1 portion of this unnecessary expense should Ponder Over the matter ask themselves if a i state of thing which not Only preys in their houses but spreads far and wide Tho most demoralising influences ought to there Ean be no question that the traffic in intoxicating liquors is at the Bottom of nine tenths of All the evils that affect and Scourge he Kinnity. Shall it be continued longer a this is the question the people of Mastic Are to decide on the seventh of june a . Beecher at the old theatre. At a prayer meeting held recently in blur ton a old theatre new York Henry Ward Beecher Cam Forward and among other Good things gave utterance to the following Good thing i do not think there is an intelligent Man in this congregation that is not abundantly qualified to Day before the aun goes Down to become a True Christian in the spiritual and experimental sense of the term and i do not aay that every Man who Haa been brought up under religious instruction should come in Here with this impression a now i suppose i must be three or four Davs serious and then i suppose there in about a a week s time in which i shall he very anxious then i Ahall go through hell Gate and come nut into a Safe Anchorage having a Christian Hope Quot a i aay it a a shame that any Man should Lay out such a course As that for a work that ought to be done in a moment in the twinkling of an Eye. More than that there a an impression that unto a there has been Tome kind of an official touch a Man s conversion is scarcely Complete that unless some appointed class Leader some eminent minister unless they have talked with him explained it to him upheld him in Thia hour encouraged Hia Hope and brought him Clear out he Doea not feel As though a was born whatever May be the Hope he enjoy there a Atill the it Prev Aion that the work of Grace requires the interposition of some official instruction. What 1 wish to say it this we wish to get rid of this impression and try to leave the impression upon your mind upon the mind of every youth of every old Man that the work of salvation is a matter Between Hia own heart and the lord Jesus Christ that there a a Between them a sympathy so there is no need of any interference. You May become a Christian now and go Home to your household and be enabled to ask n Blessing at your table to Day you May stretch Forth your hands to the amazement of your Wile and children and like a Christian Man ask a Blessing of your dinner though it be the first time in your life you May go Home to night and begin family prayer where the sound of your voice in prayer was never heard. I am going to urge you to this course and to take it at oct. But what does being a Christian mean a docs it Goar Anlee a Man that to shall never Ain again or Desiro to tin ? not at All. It is not a guarantee of in other words. Well is it to lie a Christian ? i Don t know any Way to define it better than by that Luw of love in which Christ declares a thou tilt Sci Iii Ralic in Urov history it it gut. The Dover Gazette quite recently mail the following statement a the i sat history of the democratic party is the country s history. It has been in Power forty Oua of the fifty even years since the Days of ast Larson and every great political measure that Haa contributed to Advance and elevate the country a. We brought Forward sustained and carried through a the democratic party. Thia statement than which nothing is More common or More false is frequently to w met with in democratic papers and among men who Are ignorant of the Ulory of this county or who wilfully misstate it not unite Quentlyn passes As current com. We have Hoard Meu claiming to a intelligent and Poe Tad up in political affairs Mako it but Wau avs Ort Limi slaves. The slaves of the Southern oligarchy Are not Only the coloured men Aud women who toil on their plantations. Thousands of them Are found in All the free states wherever the influence of government patronage extend. The number is happily rapidly diminishing but so Long As there Are Post office and custom houses to be tilled by a administration controlled by the slaveholder the race will not become extinct. They submit without murmuring to All the indignities put upon them by their Southern masters and submissively perform All the degrading offices required of them by those to whose favor they Are indebted Lor present or to whom they look for future Reward. Many of these abject beings have heretofore held seats in the state and National legislative bodies where their services Hare been of vital importance to their masters but a fearful mortality in the past few years has so thinned their ranks that they Are now unequal to the services at their bands. Resides this class of Northern slaves there is another lower in the scale of humanity and of which the class we have adverted to arc the Drivers and overseers. Thia i the class to which senator Wade of Ohio alluded in Hia speech in the Senate March 13, which he adverted to tha remark of senator Hammond of South Carolina in Tal Tiou to Northern slaves. Said he a Allut Tho senator spoke about a degraded a in the great commercial Citie. 1 Havo to confess there is some truth in that. To have a degraded class in the Citie. They a re the of co tiring generally of Tho old world men who come Here reduced to in Gary by their ignorance reduced to Beggary by their vice ignorant vicious dangerous. I do not deny it. They Art incident to All Large cities but the senator should not com Plain of them. They Are the chief Corner Stone of your political strength in the North. me the vicious Ward of any City that does not uphold your system of slavery vote for Ita candidate support Ita the Vaures and labor for its men. No air you should not complain of this vicious population. In truth and in fact they Are about the Only stay and support you have there now and you ought not to Traduce them. From their very natures they attach themselves to you and i do not think by any treatment you will he Able to drive them off. They Are naturally with you they were Alavo a in their own countries they do not know anything else than to be the unders trappers of somebody and when they Bear that Here Are Alava hold Houck report going the round of the papers Liat Greely of the Tribune has been recently converted a incorrect. Or. Etc Ely he been for Many years n j believer in the religion of Christ a doer of its work publicly and privately und we be Lieve a communicant in the Church. We wish j the world was full of such practical a Well As theoretical christians As or. Freely. Not Man in this country bus paid a higher tribute to Terible than be and no Man obeys More literally the command of our Saviour. Weie All men like him conversions would almost be needless. Another part was that several of them according to Tho a Alende of the jailor have been boarded at the expense of the county for a time patted. The clerk of a he Courta tha county attorney and the cashier of the Alfred Bank the latter gentleman being the standing candidate for Purser for the people of York seemed to be so a onners for the managing foreigner before referred to and it not themselves subject to tha spiritual influences so apparent on the occasion and which to pervaded the atmosphere of the court room appeared to he fully satisfied that Auch spiritualism when manufactured into american Citi Tena would Aid tha cause of Sham democracy. It a to be hoped that tha fund of the county having Hoen already somewhat diminished by paying the Board Bills of some of these manufacture i Isena at the county institution at Alfred will not a further diminished by the expense of their naturalization. It is bad enough to pay the Board of foreign rowdies but it would be Atill worse to pay tha expenses of making american Titi tens of such foreigner As have become Pesta in their own country and Are thrown upon the people of Thia country not Only to be supported but to become the aids gamblers and Hore Jockie in their Endeavor to Bear Rule Over us. Alfred april 20, 1858. Reminisce Knob or Cal. new York correspondent of the Boston journal in writing of col. Benton relate tha following incident illustrative of Hia devoted affection for Hia family a for a Long time before her death mrs. Benton had been an invalid. By the softening of her brain her mind was greatly in feel. Rut from the Timo of her sickness to the hour of her death her husband tended her with All the care of a Mother towards an Only child. She sat by his Side Whilo he wrote and at times the old smile would come Back to her pallid Cheek. Never did or. Benton appear greater than on the Day his House was consumed. He saw unmoved the work of a years destroyed. But when he knew that with his property and Hia valuable papers other things had vanished More valuable than Gold the fountains of feelings were broken up and bitter tear flowed. Some of his friends anxious to know How Tho conflagration had affected his property made some inquiries about the pecuniary damage to had suffered. He said Little of Hia loss of goods but with deep feeling alluded to those treasures which could never be recalled or replaced lie opened the secret Chambers of Hia heart.
