Van Wyck of new York and says portions of it were gravely false and uncharitable if he meant to convey the idea that cruelty to male slaves in the South was the Rule and kindness the exception. Kindness was the Rul a cruelty uie exception. Quot but Quot a says the news Quot but nevertheless cruelty exists and slaves have been burned at the stake in slave Stales. No longer ago than last summer a negro Man committed an infamous outrage in Saline county in this state and he was instantly seized by an infuriated mob composed it is said of the Best citizens of that county. He was tied to a stake. The faggots were piled his around him and lighted. And there in Broad Day Light in a land of Law courts and civilisation in presence of a Christian Community the infuriated throng pressed around the fiery Circle and looked with approving emotion perhaps not with Savage Joy upon the shrieking victim who leaped at the stake and yelled in horrible pain As the flames licked his quivering thews and Muscles and finally swept his charred body to the new of the hoax state bul the Richmond whig says of the Homestead Bill which recently passed the House Quot never was there a More odious and iniquitous Bill passed by any deliberative body on its objections of course Are sectional in their character. This is the whigs decisive argument against the measure thus under the provisions of this Homestead Biu the Public lands comprising Over one thou Sud millions of acres and belonging equally to a the Sites Are Given away to ail manner of persons and for the exclusive Benefit of the Northern Sites. They Are Given not Only to native bom citizens but to Ali Gerrans who my file a declaration of their intentions to become citizens at a future Day thus embracing in the terms and benefits of the Grant the hundreds of thousands of foreigners who annually land upon our shores. And thus goes the vast and magnificent Public Domain to the strengthening and enriching of the Northern states at the expense of the Southern Virginia included. If the South will set up a general howl on the subject or. Buchanan will be sure to veto the Bill if it is not strangled in the Senate. The final Triumph of this measure is probably reserved for the Days of a re publican administration. -tatal.$184,996,372 to Jumiov or Asai. Brats As bin mated m 1859.

Pittman of the ship James Guthrie has sent the following interesting extract giving the particulars of an immense water spout which he saw on his outward passage. His journal says sept. I 1859, lat. 4u Deg. 30 min., Ion. 59 Deg. 34 min. West at 2 p. M., took Strong Breeze from the South East which put us under double reefed to sails with the mercurial column at 30 at 5 p. It ran Down to 29 5 the wind increasing close reefed and furl id All Light sails and courses. Observed in the South West a dark cumbrous looking Cloud which approached the ship with an amazing rapidity while the wind continued to increase veering to the opposite Quarter. When the Cloud was within Abdul three Miles of the ship the wind suddenly fell to a dead Calm and the phenomenon presented a terrific appearance. The Cloud now assumed the form of an inverted Cone and gradually descended towards the sea which also formed itself into a lofty Peak until the two Points met completing a water spout of Gigantic dimensions. Around this Moun Uin of water a whirlwind immediately commenced earing and scattering the sea in every direction detaching and carrying in its course Large masses of Clouds. The appearance was like a vast horizontal wheel turning around this Mountain of water with the spout for its Centre with an amazing velocity and As tha sky near the horizon was perfectly Clear the revolutions of this wonderful wind and water wheel were distinctly visible making its revolutions Complete in 26 seconds and with a regularity and precision that were truly astonishing. This continued for about 20 minutes dui ing which Lime the connection of the Clouds with the sea was several times broken off without reducing the Ahi tude of the sea Mountain but immediately became reunited until finally it terminated with a splash agitating the ship and passing Over her ending in torrents of rain. Very soon the sky became beautifully Clear the wind set in fresh from the South West and All nature As Well As myself seemed rejoiced at the destruction of so formidable a machine the Sun peeped out from behind the broken Clouds sending his streaming rays through the heavens and singing the Fleecy Clouds with colors far exceeding anything that my eyes Ever beheld. I could not help exclaiming with the psalmist Quot How wondrous Are thy works. Lord god almighty Quot according to my judgment the diameter of this wonderful wheel was at least half a mile. If so the Force of the wind in hat Circle must have been 200 Miles an hour a sufficient to have destroyed the ship in a few hours. Tend. Lack take. .$302,418,472 .�117,422,100 Anaa or All tax Mes.

La Arbter to emf a Badu aaa s we extract the following from a Pun gent article in the pm Ludelphia press on what it terms Quot the great treason Quot of the administration if in the midst of this canvass any one had dared to Prophesy that before the close of or. Buchanan s administration the two governor of the two territories of Kansas and Nebraska appointed by himself would interpose their veto in order to defeat the Law of the Legislatures of those respective territories abolishing slavery he would have been denounced Assn enemy and ridiculed As an impostor. And yet what have we seen within the last few weeks Samuel Medary governor of Kansas and Samuel w. Black governor of Nebraska no doubt instructed by James Buchanan and his Cabinet have come for Ward for the purpose of giving a practical evidence hat ten thousand Pledgee made in the name of or. Buchanan in 1856, and based upon his own voluntary com Mintals have All been falsified himself less ing the Way to show that he did not mean what be said and that his whole object was to deceive and to betray the popular sentiment. The excuse for this treason to principle is As bad As the act itself. The president and his Myrmidon not Content with flying in the face of his record and the record of the whole democratic party in 1856, now set up the monstrous Ahe gation that the supreme court of the United states Baa decided that slavery exists in the territories and that because it does so exist there it must be protected by the executive or by Congress. In the very face of the most authoritative declaration to the contrary this idea is sought to be interpolated into the democratic Creed and the very men who do so Are conscious that they Are putting a i insult upon Tea supreme court of the oni ted states and demoralizing that tribunal in the affections and Confidence of the peo pie.

He is a Republican and nothing else. He is just As Good or bad a Republican As Seward or Chase or Lincoln is. He is a Republican pure and simple. As such of course the constitutional Union men of the South will scorn to touch him. He has by a single blow severed every tie of Confidence or of sympathy which connected him with the Southern the same paper after copying our political article of tuesday remarks a Tew hours after the publication of All this or. Bates if the Telegraph my be credited addressed a letter to the Chicago delegation of Missouri disclosing on his n political character every one of the Marks which he Gazette Here so distinctly Points out. He foots the line to a hair. He exactly fills the Bill. We take it for granted that the Gazette will oppose no further objection to or. Bates on the score of excessive conservatism or of deficient republicanism. Unless the Telegraph does him cruel injustice he has levelled at one fell swoop every conceivable objection of this sort Quot the Terre haute express Bas the following Quot or. Bates Haa declared himself firmly and positively with the republicans and having done so. Becomes at on left in our judgment the most prominent candidate for the Chicago nomination. No Republican however Ultra he May be can refuse him his support and he will rally around him the conservative men of the entire a Quot Liberty guard Quot paper in Indiana Days of or. Bates recent letter which would make nearly tvo Volt int in that Sheet that Quot it is too Brief to give general if you regard it Aseo very Quot Brief Quot Pray have the courage to let your readers see what the life Long opinions of if. Bates in regard to slavery really Are. The Cleveland Herald says that Quot judge Bates is Square and Flat flooded on the eur publican platform As regards slavery in the the Dayton Gazette. Which Bas heretofore expressed distrust As to the position of or. Bates admin As to Bis late letter Quot this is sound Republican Cincinnati Gazette. The old Plas or form big a new sort Ukoh state old project of forming a new state out of Northern Mississippi Western Tennessee and the extreme Western Point of Kentucky Haa been revived and the Tennessee legislature Baa Given it in Sanction. The proposed state would be bounded by the Tennessee River on the East through the states of Kentucky and Tennessee and by the Mississippi on the West and would contain a population of about 700,000. Among the Many excellent hits in the speech of senator Wade and there Are plenty such in All his characteristic speeches the following to which we append the Albany evening journal s comments especially deserves to be Quot kept before the people Quot Quot it is a Little remarkable that the loudest complaints come from those who have had he Power and administration of the government for Many years and have folded ils policy and been in Possession of its vast revenues. The party to which i belong have been for Many years without any Power to control in any Way in the policy of the government. It is a singular fact that those who have the army the Navy and the Treasury under their control now stand complaining and they come Forward to Tell us that their Mal administration is such or their principles Are such that it will be better to tear Down the pillars of the government and involve us All in one common ruin. The question might Well arise How happens it that you who have been in Possession of the Power of the government for at least seven years should have so conducted it that you Are now apprehensive of ruin a senator Wade s speech. The strongest commentary on democratic administration is to be found in the a present position of the democratic party hey have squandered and mis governed until the country will tolerate them no longer and their Only Hope of retaining Power is based upon their ability to terrify the people by threats of dissolving the Union if they Are red out of office these threats they undertake to justify by the pretext that the two sections of the Union have been brought into but if so who brought them into that condition with All the civil and military executive legislative and judicial Power in their own hands to. Declare that Quot the country is been brought to the verge of civil War Quot is to admit that they themselves have done in. Nor does it need More than a momentary glance at the history of the past few years to perceive that All the troubles the democracy complain of Are of their own making. The Kansas difficulties would have had no existence but for their uncalled for repeal of the Missouri Compromise. So it is with every other Point of difference. Every one is the direct result of a perversion of the Federal government from its legitimate duties into an engine of slavery Extension. Had the slavery question been left where the founders of the Republic left it Sll would have been peace and there would have been no necessity for the new organization which now arises to take the reins of government from the incapable hands that hold them and bring it Back to the path so unwisely and unnecessarily Albany eve. Jour. Colonel Bowie in Mississippi a Triue Dael it tween forty Koa. An old mississippian furnishes the following 0 the Woodville Mississippi Republican the famous Duel in which forty or More gentlemen were engaged in 1828, is still remembered in Natchez. Colonel Jiin Bowie the famous fighter and inventor of the knife which bears his name used to spend a great Deal of his time in Natchez. He was challenged by a gentleman of Alexandria Louisiana whose friends to the number of Twenty or More accompanied him to Natchez to see fair play knowing Bowie was a desperate Man. And had his own friends about him. All parties went upon the Field. The combatants took heir places in the Center separated from their friends in the rear far enough not to endanger them with their balls. Behold the Battle array thus Twenty armed Louisian ians fifty Yards behind their Champion and his seconds and surgeon and opposite them As far behind Bowie and his seconds and surgeon Twenty armed mississippians. Behold the hights of Natchez thronged with spectators and a Steamer in the River rounded to its deck Lack with passengers watching with a deep interest the scene. The plan of fight was to Exchange Shou twice with pistols and to close with knit is Bowie being armed with his own terrible weapon. At the first fire both parties escaped. At the second the Lonis iranian was too Uick and took advantage of Bowie who waited the word. At this Bowie s second cried Quot foul play Quot and shot the Louisi Anian dead. The second of the latter instantly killed the Slayer of his principal. Bowie drove Bis knife into this Man. The surgeons now crossed Blades while with loud Battle cries Cama on the two parties of friends the Light of Battle in their eyes. In a moment the whole number were engaged in a fearful conflict. Dirks pistols and knives were used with fatal effect until one party drove the other from the Field. I do not know How Many were killed and wounded in All but it was a dreadful Slaughter. Bowie fought like a lion but fell covered with wounds. For months he lingered at the mansion House before he fully recovered. Tax Lafayette courier says that on Friday night the s3d ult., an attempt was made to bum the town of Attica. It waa fired in three places at the same time and in the confusion and alarm produced by the fires several private boosts were entered and robbed. Christian Stylo of vomit Appa Ial it is stated that the latest fashion announced from Europe is that of dressing very plainly when going to Church. Some of the ladies of the first Quot Circle Quot go up to worship in Plain Calico. It is thus sought to encourage the attendance of the poor who have hitherto withheld Bair presence for Lack of Quot sunday a sensible not to say Christian idea and will be More powerfully conducive to the promotion of religion among the masses than any other outside movement we can conceive of. Not to speak of the influence it will have upon the upper Clasara themselves in removing from their immediate Eye the surroundings of vanity which Abo Minate our Quot fashionable churches Quot Aud preparing them to Quot receive with meekness the engrafted word which is Able to save their Over the portals of every Christian Sanctuary it should be written Quot the Rich and the poor meet together the lord is the maker of them Robert Dale Owen and Horace Greeley Are discussing through the columns of the new York Tribune the question of marriage and divorce. Or. Greeley is opposed to divorce except upon the single ground of adultery Asha is also to unworthy marriages. In reply to or. Owen s second letter he says i. The established express unequivocal dictionary meaning of marriage is Gintoa for life. Whether any other sort of Union of Man and woman be or be not More rational More Beneficent More moral More Christian than this it is certain that this in marriage and that other is something else. Ii. That this is what we whore legally married at All events if married by the ministers of any Christian denomination uniformly covenant to do. I distinctly remember that my marriage covenant was Quot for better for worse Quot and Quot until death do i presume yours was the same. Iii. That Jesus of Nazareth in opposition to the ideas and usages current in Bis time alike among jews and gentiles expressly secured adultery to be the Only valid reason for dissolving a i marriage. In. That the nature and in Hering reason of marriage inexorably demand that it be indissoluble except for that one crime which destroys its essential condition. In other words no marriage can be innocently dissolved but the husband or wife May be released from the engagement upon proof of the utter and Fli rant violation of its essential condition by the other party. And now allow me to say that i do not see that your second letter Success fully assails any of these positions. Tou do not and cannot deny that our Standard dictionaries define marriage As i do and deny the name to any temporary arrangement you do not deny that i have truly stated Christ s doctrine on the subject whereof the Christian ceremonial of marriage whether in tha Catholic or protestant churches is a standing evidence and am willing o let your criticism on Christ s statement pass without comment. So with regard to Moses i am Content to leave Moses s Law of divorce to the Brief but pungent commentary of Jesua and his unquestionably Correct averment that Quot from the beginning it was not but you say that if my position is sound. I make Quot a sweeping assertion Quot against the Validity of the marriages now existing in Indiana and other divorcing Quot states. 0 no sir nine tenths of the people in those states i Trust ninety nine Hundredth so were married by Christian ministers under the Law of Christ. They solemnly i covenanted to remain faithful until death and they Are fulfilling that Promise. Your easy divorce Laws Are nothing to them their consciences and their lives have no part in those Laws. Your state might decree that any couple May divorce themselves at pressure and still those who regard Jesus As their divine master and teacher would hold fast to his word and live according to a Quot higher Law Quot than that revised and relaxed by you. I dissent entirely from your dictum that the words of Jesus relative to marriage and divorce May have been intended to have a local and temporary application. On the contrary believe he unlike Moses promulgated the eternal and Universal Law. Founded not in accommodation to special circumstances but in the essential nature of god and Man. I admit that he May sometimes have withheld truth that he deemed his auditors unable to comprehend and accept Bat i insist that what he did set Forth was the absolute unchanging fact. But i did not cite him to overhear reason by authority but because you referred first to christianity and the will of god and because i believe what he said respecting marriage to be the very truth. Can you seriously imagine that your personal exegesis on his words should outweigh the uniform tradition and practice of All Christendom you understand i presume that i hold to separations Quot from Ira a and Board Quot a As the Laws of this state allow them Only in cases where the party thus separated is in danger of bodily harm from the brutality of an insane intemperate or otherwise brutalized infuriated husband or wife. I do not admit that even such peril can release one from the vow of continence which is the vital condition of marriage. It May possibly be that there a Quot temptation Quot involved in the position of one thus legally separated but i judge that evil far less than hat which must result from the easy dissolution of marriage. For Here is the vital truth that your theory overlooks the divine end of mar if the is parentage or the perpetuation and increase of the human race. To this end it is indispensable at least eminently desirable that each child should enjoy Protection nurture sustenance at the hands of a Mother not Only but of a Fath a also. In other words the parents should be so attached so devoted to each other that hey shall be practically separable but by death. Creatures of appetite fools of temptation k vers of change As men Are there is but one Talisman potent to distinguish Between genuine affection and its meretricious counterfeit and hat is the solemn searching questions Quot do you know this woman so thoroughly and love her so profoundly that you can assuredly Promise that you will forsake All others and Cleave to her Only till death Quot if you can your Union is one that god Bas hallowed and Man May Honor and approve wait till Yon can thus pledge yourself to some one irrevocably invoking heaven and Earth to witness your truth. If you Rush into a Union with one whom you do not thus know and love and who does not thus know and love you yours a the crime the shame Urs be the life Long penalty. I do not think As men and women actually Are this Law can be improved when we reach the spirit world i presume we shall find a divine Law adapted to its requirements and to our moral condition. Here i am satisfied with that set Forth by Jesus Christ. And while i admit that i divid i bold that thera is Seldom an unhappy marriage that was. Not originally an unworthy one Hasty and heedless if not positively Vic Bitts. And if people will transgress god can scarcely save them from consequent suffering and do not think you or i can. Hoback it Ixam. In the Quot Paa we noticed some Days ago that Tea proposition had been made in the Pennsylvania legislature to open negotiations with Virginia for the Purchase of the Quot pan As it is called the Long Spike of Virginia territory protruding upwards Between the Western line of Pennsylvania and the Ohio River. Whether the propos Itin was anything More than a joke on Virginia we Don t know but there is enough fitness in Stich a Transfer to make the scheme sensible if not practicable. Any one who Bas been there knows that both the situation of the territory and the condition of the people assimilate it More to tha state it adjoins than the state it belongs to. But we should take it to be tha most unlikely thing in the world that Virginia would listen a moment to any proposition to sell it. The Energy and vitality of Tea state Are collecting of Tea Testara Border and the time is not far off when Quot old Virginia Quot will be worthless and help Lesa beside the Quot new the support of the state government must come in a Large degree from the Thrifty farms and furnaces of the West where slavery has not mildewed labor if the East is to retain her aristocratic right of owning property without paying axes on it. The East understands this Well and hence while she denounces the Quot abolitionism Quot and Quot treason Quot of the West she clings to it with the desperate grasp of a drowning prude to Lusty servant Man. Quot Eye is too much real so id Good in having slaves taxed As Quot persons Quot instead of being rated at a fair value and taxed u other to be lightly thrown away and if the East is left to herself slave most be taxed As property or the whole Stata Revenue would t pay the interest on her Bonds. The Wear in fact under the present arrangement of representation and taxation is merely a Cushion on which old Virginia Sita and takes ber Case. And the pan handle a a very Inni Octant Section of the hence Virginia will never sell the pan handle. She will tax it and cheat it out of Ita rights and save her slaves by Means of it but she will hold it first. The Wheeling intelligencer to which we owe our Best Hanks for its kind allusion to us recently says Quot it will be Many a Long Day before a intern Virginia will consent to part with the pan handle though every Man in it were the blackest kind of a she does not Bate republicans half so much As she loves Money. And we confess though the intelligencer appears to be indifferent that we should rather see the pan handle remain As it is. The Ware that Lias started from that Remote Corner of the state will sometime Roll Over the mountains if the original impulse be not withdrawn and we want the pan handle and the intelligencer to remain where they can keep up the work they have both begun so ind. Jour. Tha bul the Tipton Democrat says it Don t know much about the circumstances of the veto of the embezzlement Bill in 1859. We will Tell it. The Bill passed in connection with two or three others creating a new financial system for the state. One of this series largely increased the salaries of officers but the embezzlement Bill provided that the officer should get nothing but be salary. The governor vetoed it and thus secured both the new High salaries and the big old stealing. To do this successfully he had to play an adroit game. It was close to the end of the session but not close enough to allow him to Quot pocket Quot the Bill. He bad therefore to veto it or prove it. If he had vetoed it right away it would have been passed Over his Bead and if be had allowed it to be understood that he would veto it. The members of the legislature would All have stayed to the last moment and passed it Over Bis head anyhow. So to avoid both these difficulties his friends circulated the report with great Industry and apparent sincerity that a meant to approve it that nobody need stay on that and thua got away so Many members that it could not be passed Over the veto and then after night on the last Day he sent in his veto. This is the True history of the thing. Indianapolis journal.
