We make the following extract from a speech by for. Hassa Urek at Springfield. Illinois but air the pretended friends and special advocates of popular sovereignly soon dropped their disguise. The popular sovereignty delusion was of very Short duration for those who had honestly in it. Born As it was As a Scapegoat and a pretence by a treacherous Mother who did not intend that the poor baby should live pressed into a Cradle which was too Short and narrow for its dimensions entrusted to the abominable care of Missouri wet nurses fed on whisky instead of Nilk and receiving a Stone or a Leaden Ball or a Bayonet when it asked for bread openly denounced and disowned by president Buchanan who had originally agreed to be in god father it was killed and dissected before it had regularly died by the doctors of the supreme court at Washington. Being of doubtful and illegitimate legislative birth it met with a dreadful judiciary death. The poor puny Pale and forlorn infant was regularly sentenced to death by the supreme court and ended its Short and unhappy life on the Gallows of dried Scott Hill grim or Buchanan with his yearly message wrapped around him acting As executioner and or.

A civil War is prevailing among the turks in which a Low order of Mahometano called ruses appear to figure prominently. Amid the commotions the ancient prejudices of the moslem have been aroused and christians have been attacked and hundreds and thousands of them have been butchered. Demascus Beirut and several Small villages have been attacked and the inhabitants put to the sword until the purifying dead bodies lie in the streets in such numbers As to whole prevent a living being from inhabiting them. The English. French and american consuls have done All in their Power to protect the christians but can not save them from the fury of their ene Mia. It is to be hoped these govern Mente will speedily take measures to put a Stop to such horrid Slaughter. Chi. The new Albany Ledger in a notice of the result of the Kentucky election says general Combs is elected clerk of the court of appeals and major Breckinridge has the proud satisfaction of knowing that through Bis Agency a slate which one year ago was democratic by ten thousand majority has been thrown into the bands of the opposition by More than that number of votes. That is Cool enough to have been written with a piece of ice in a refrigerator. The Breckinridge men Are charged with the election of Combs. Hear what the Louisville Democrat an Able Douglas paper and generally supposed to be about As Well posted in Kentucky Pofit ios As any Indiana paper can be says on the same Point they the Douglas men were free to vote a they pleased. Some voted for boiling some for Hopkins and the major for Leslie Combs. We have no word of untre for them for doing so if anything commendation. They wanted to kill Dis unionism and they took the most Elf actual Way of doing it. Between or Mcclarty As a disunion is and Comba As a unionist aside from their other opinions we would not have hesitated a moment to have voted for the Friend of the Union. We rejoiced and do rejoice that Mcclarty waa beaten and Elf actually beaten Bis party crushed out. We do wish democratic organs could agree but it seems they can t. They Don t even cry in Indianapolis journal. Pot tit of Bright As Jesse d. Bright said the other Day in his speech at Indianapolis that everything John Petit said always breathed truth the Douglas papers quote the following from Pettit on Bright there is no complaint of my course and the question a shall i beaten to gratify the imperious dictation of one Man shall the whole state cower to him whose chief qualification for a place is Low cunning and treachery and a hatred of everything that is greater and nobler than himself the Sbat a a a a Stich. Under this caption we find in the Indianapolis journal the following Able article which Well deserves a careful perusal from All oar readers the democracy proclaim the doctrine that slaves Are property and then that the Constitution of the United states protects All property and hence slave property can to into the territories. Why not say also into the free states now the simple undeniable truth about the matter is just this. The Constitution does not itself nor for itself recognize property in slaves but it does recognize the fact that some states recognize this species of property and it protects those states in the enjoyment of that property and limits such enjoyment to such states. At the same time it recognizes the fact that other slates deny the existence of such property and it equally protects them in the use of that prohibition and limits it also to the boundaries of such states. The term Quot slavery Quot is not in the Constitution. But there Are just three places where slaves Are meant. First in Art. 1, Sec. 2, Quot adding to the whole Ninaber of free persons three fifths of All other persons Quot a to. This Means three fifths of All slaves. Secondly in Sec. 9 of the same article we read Quot the migration or importation of such persons As any of the. States now existing shall think proper to admit shall not be prohibited prior to 1808."�? these persons of course mean slaves and the reference is to the slave Trade. Thirdly Art. 4, Sec. 2, Quot no person held to service or labor in one state under the Laws thereof escaping into another shall n consequence of any Law or regulation therein be discharged from such service or labor but shall be delivered upon the claim of the party to whom such service May be this refers to the giving up of fugitive slaves and the allusion is made to Laws and regulations of free states against slavery. It is perfectly obvious upon the very face of this language that the Constitution itself does not recognize property in slaves Hgt. a Tietz Liitt run m Hoim mra Quot ii Quot persons not slaves per sons Soi Chattha a is proof that the constitute Ioji fairly interpreted puts the Burthen of proof and the Burthen of establishing slavery on the institution itself. A Law of a state is neb Essary before the Constitution will recognize Quot any person owing service Quot a slave services in any locality. Now the democracy make great Parade of the Constitution. And the Mac Stith Tiosh clearly and undeniably proves them to be false interpreters when they hold that it a carries slavery into the territories. They May mean right but something has perverted their mind for they Are wrong in constitutional Law wrong in morals and wrong in policy. And the quicker the party Dies standing on these grounds the better for the country. In Ochoa.

The Lawrenceburg Republican tells the following capital Story of Ben Spooner the Iron Republican of that place Ben Spooner on boarding the cars Here the other Day for Vincennes found a southerner voc iterating vehemently in favor of Southern institutions and against Quot the did abolition Spooner remarked that he could get off at Aurora and he would pay his Herriage across the River and be would then be out of the state. Southerner proceeded to say that he was an alabamian and that he did t allow people to talk that Way to him and further remarked that the slaves of his country were better than the poor White trash of Indiana. Ben remarked that that suited his Case that he was a poor Man and that he did not allow Southern negro Drivers to talk that Way in Bis presence and proceeded very deliberately to administer to the Southern gentleman the chastisement he so richly deserved. He planted his right a 7a Hee Nan beneath the left Eye which caused that gentleman to retract the offensive language and beg the Pardon of our Friend Spooner. Bea Soas for Laa Viag Douglas. In Logan county Illinois we. P. Randolph a leading Democrat has come out for Lincoln. He made a speech a few Dayn since explaining his course. Among the reasons assigned for renouncing Douglas were these 1. The Baltimore popular sovereignty platform endorses the dred Scott decision. The dred Scott decision declares that slavery legally exists in All the territories. There is then no difference Between the policy of Breckinridge and Douglas. 2. Or. Douglas in a recent speech affirmed that the practical operation of non intervention had been to convert new Mexico which was formerly a free territory into a slave territory. Thus through popular sovereignty the South had gained from the North slavery had snatched from the North an area equal to five state of the size of new York. If such is the effect of Quot my great principle Quot or. R. Declared his unwillingness to support it further. The Totag Hoa for Liao la. The Newark n. A Mercury says it is an encouraging indication of the Campaign that the. Young men Are rallying in great numbers and with unbounded enthusiasm to the support of Quot honest old thousands who in 1866, were deluded into the belief that Millard Fillmore could he elected Are no longer willing to support a Decoy ticket besides the Youns men have every confide each in Abraham Lincoln knowing that one competent to rain himself from the humblest and most obscure to the most elevated and influential position in society is fit to be trusted with the Reina of government and will not hold them amiss. Lincoln is emphatically the Ordice of the Young men and their Earnest enthusiasm will contribute largely to his inevitable Success. The guard says that the proposition of a deput state officer to bet �600 that Breckinridge and i be would not get 10,000 votes in Indiana will be taken up by another gentleman at any moment and that tse 9600 Haa been deposited in that office for that purpose. It also says to in it the Zaoie gentleman ill bet �600 More that Breckinrid will get 20,000 votes in Indiana. Here is a Chance for an Indianapolis Joar. Calls a now the term Quot person is the proper Chipmon and respectable title of a free i. It is no disrespect to Call a company of intelligent gentlemen the Constitution Speaks of Quot free persons Quot and of Quot All other persons Quot and of a slave Only As Quot persons held to service Quot in particular states. Now the presumption of the common Law and the Constitution is that persons Are free that All persons Are free and in the United states All persons Are free except those who Quot owe service in one state under the Laws so far is the Constitution itself from holding to property in Roan that it Pio tests More than half the states of the Union in Quot Laws and regulations Quot against slavery limiting these Laws to the citizens of these states while at the same time it profit cts other states in Mainu ining Laws to sustain slavery. Of course then the Constitution itself is not thei direct Law for slavery. As Well say because it protects some states in maintaining Laws prohibiting slavery that therefore it is designed to abolish slavery. Theoflice of the Constitution is to Sac redly guard the several states each in the enjoyment of the institutions of its Choice. And As Sac redly does it limit the regulations of each state be they against slavery or for it to that state. And each state under the Constitution is bound to respect its sister state. If a slave escape to a free state and Bis master come and claim him he shall not have the Benefit of free state Laws. But the master Mist respect the Laws of the free state and take Bis slave to his own state. This is precisely the relation which the Constitution of the United states sustains to Slavey. Its great office in that respect is to protect the states in keeping it or in prohibiting it. Now can this institution be carried into a territory under the Constitution one thing is certain. There is not in the Constitution the slightest allusion to any such thing As slavery in a territory. When the Klave Trade existed it was to be carried on by states and not by a territory. There is no permission Given to a Territo but Only to states to import slaves. In Art. 4, 2, on returning fugitives it is Only those that Quot owe service under the Laws of a state Quot not a territory that shall be delivered up. The Quot three fifths of All other persons Quot to be enumerated for a basis of direct taxation and representation is Only in Quot the several states Quot not in the territories. There is no fugitive slave Chi use in the Constitution for territories no three fifths enumeration in it of slaves for territories. But the territories Are under the sole government of the United steles. All legislation of the general government must be according to the Constitution of the United states not of slave states or of free states. Now the services of the Constitution in behalf of slavery begin and end in protecting states in having slavery. If it would be unjust to the slave states to refuse to protect it there so it would be unjust in the free states to Grant that Protection. In territories it Cando neither because there is Fyt no state government there. It is Clear then if the office of the Constitution be to protect Stetes. Some in shutting slavery out and others in maintaining it that it cannot legislate it or permit Congress to legislate it into a territory. It is a controverted kind of property. More than half the Stetes of the Union deny the justness or propriety of it and the other portions uphold it. Congress Sac redly protects the two classes of Stetes in the enjoyment within their own Borders of their respective property is not subject to this denial horses cattle &c., Are property everywhere but human beings Are not property every where. The presumption is that human beings Are not property. The great mass of the people in this country Are not property and in More than half the states they cannot be property the Laws of the land will not allow it. And the fact Fiat the Constitution will not Call them by the name which the institution gives them but Calls them always Sony not Minyu a Obard at bomb still. From the dial of the 9th just on tuesday the republicans Bod a grand rally at Connersville. A Quot party of wide awakes went from Indianapolis and were joined by different delegations along the route. At Cambridge City they loft the Central Road and embarked on a canal boat. The experience of this part of the excursion was new to Many. It was their first canal boat ride and they will not be sorry if it is their last. The Day was sultry and the boat closely packed but notwithstanding this a Good Deal of fun was manufactured while navigating the raging Waters. In. One of the locks a swarm of Humble bees had made a nest and As the boats passed through the bees took Occa Sion to Quot plug Quot several of the excursion lists about the Tecer producing a species of swelled Heads not often seen in Republican groups. The democrats bad let the water out of one of the Levels of the canal the night be fore thinking the wide awakes would go Down at night but the mischief was discovered in time to fill the level sufficiently to enable the boat to reach Connersville. The excursion lists reached their destination As the procession from the town was marching to the fair grounds and leaving their boat joined the thousands of republicans who had reached Connersville before them. On the fair grounds they were served with a Bountiful repast by mrs. J. A. Wadley mrs. Samuel w. Parker mrs. Joseph Justice mrs. J. M. Wilson and other ladies and during their stay in Connersville were treated in the most hospitable manner. Nothing was to pay any where everything was free. The same Liberal treatment was extended to the Lincoln rangers of Union county and All other organized Republican bodies. The speeches at the fair grounds were made by col. Lane and Hon. Caleb b. Smith and were received with the a most rapturous applause. At the conclusion of the speaking three guns were fired in rapid succession for half an hour producing Quot Republican Thunder Quot that sent dismay into the hearts of All the democrats who heard it. At night the speaking was continued by col. Farquhar of Brookville presidential elector for the fourth District William Wallace and Charles Coulon esqs., of Indianapolis the latter in the German language. Before the speaking a torchlight procession was formed under the direction of Geo. L. Ferris grand marshal which exceeded in extent and brilliancy the grand procession at the Republican stale ratification meeting in 1866. The demonstration was the most imposing and cheering of any yet seen in the Campaign inspiring the republicans with Hope and Confidence and incr wait g the despondency of our already dispirited opponent. The crowd was estimated at 10,000 people which considering that Connersville has no railroads is a political gathering that has had but few parallels in size. The Indianapolis wide awakes speak in glowing terms of Connersville and her live Quot republicans. The visit of our Lincoln Quot boys Quot will be returned on the 29lh inst., on the occasion of the state ratification. The White water Valley republicans will make an Effort to get the Banner that is offered to the largest delegation visiting Indianapolis on that Day. Nth has i Sib. In trying to Point out in hit is True k will some Jaaes become necessary to look beyond the decisions of Courte and the statements of judges. A few Dys ago in the presence of a Small number of bystanders Alderd Cut and a Republican were discussing the question of the Power of Congress Iver the subject of it slavery in id the territories of to United state the discussion was carried on in Good temper and one of the closely disputed Points was disposed of substantially As follows a i Republican you will of course admit that Congress did bar the ordinance of Quot i787, prob iut slavery 4n the Northwest eni territory democrats certainly but you will admit that the ordinance of 1787 was passed before the adoption of the Constitution of the United Stetes Republican so it was and the first Congress that met after the adoption of the Constitution confirmed the Force of the prohibition in the ordinance by a special Law. Democrat Rabat was All right. It was the dirty of con a to pass such a Law in compliance with the conditions imposed on the United Stetes by Virginia m her deed of cession. Republican to Yon cannot defend that assertion. The Virginia deed of cession con teens no word or sentence that relates in any manner whatever to the prohibition of slavery in the Northwestern territory. On the contrary about a month and half after the deed of cession was executed by Virginia and accepted by Congress messes. Jefferson Chase acid Howell brought before Congress a proposition to prohibit slavery in the territory and the state of Virginia voted against i democrats sir that must a a mistake because in the dred Scott Case Jude Catron he admit Quot that Virgin could and lawfully did prohibit slavery Northwest of the Ohio by her charter of cession Quot and judge Taney in delivering the opinion of the court said that the territory ceded was Quot within the acknowledged limits Quot of the state of Virginia. The of a facial statements of a judge of the supreme court of the United Stetes ought to be received As Good authority. Republican i admit that the official statement of a judge of the supreme court and especially the opinions of the court Are worthy of the special respect of the United states except in cases where such statement a and opinions Are beyond All doubt based in error. The Virginia deed of cession is set out. In full in the 4th volume of the old journals of Congress commencing on Page 342 and there is nothing to be found in the deed that refers either directly or remotely to the prohibition of slavery anywhere. With respect to the declaration of the court that the territory was Quot within the acknowledged limits Quot of the state of Virginia you will find on the 22nd Page of Tea Saie volume some views,.nt for committee of Congress which will convince you that the court has been at least very careless in the use of . at Tolfe Organ place has thus far Quot Rafii question As t9? dental into is hot wa1arf.o Loag a a Dent upon that.

Judge Terry who murdered Broderick coolly and Deli rarely shooting him Down after Broderick s pistol had accidentally gone off was lately put through a trial. He had obtained a change of venue and on the Day of trial the District attorney Benham who was Terry s second in the foul murder announced that the witnesses for the state were not on hand and the Case went to the jury without any evidence and As a matter of course the murderer was discharged. So the blood of poof Broderick goes a avenged As it was supposed would be the Case when Benham was nominated by Buchanan and ratified by the Senate for u. S. District attorney for California.
