The examiner of yesterday contained a two column reply to our article of the previous Day in which we stated As a Well known and indisputable fact that Quot so far As the Black lie publican party As a distinct political organization is concerned there is no evidence existing of any intention on part As the examiner alleges to employ any and All Means to extirpate slavery from the Southern states whether by the Bayonet of foreign enemies or by the Torch and knife of the rebellious we added that of such purpose had Ever been Signi fied by the Republican party Atid no such threat Ever made a or do we believe that any such purpose has Ever been or Ever will to entertained by it or that any such silly threat towards the South will Ever escape the examiner to think is a singularly unfortunate in the Mode of reasoning it employs to show the republicans As Sparig propose to themselves Quot to extirpate slavery irom the Southern states Quot by Viola fat Means. It overlooks entirely the National and state platforms of the lie publicans in none of which can be found a single seat enoc line word or syllable remotely squinting towards congressional or executive interfere Bce with slavery in the states where it exists. Their platform of principles As put Forth by the Philadelphia convention which nominated Fremont has been read and reread by the examiner and the whole Southern people. Is there anything in Liat platform looking to the abolition of shivery in the Southern states ? will the examiner assert that there is ? the respective Satel Jila forms of the a publican Par. / have Ben also perused by the examiner and the whole Suthera people la there anything in any of those platforms which indicates a Purpo a or conveys a threat on the part of the party Quot to employ any and All Means to ext Iii ate slav by from the South tin states whether by Bayonet of foreign enemies or by the Torch and knife of the rebellious negro Quot will tie exam inner assert that there is ? we affirm that there is not a word in either the National or the slate platforms of the Republican Pirty which can be tortured by any ingenue in of construction into Shad Owins Forth the idea of a purpose on their part to interfere with slavery in the states where it exists. And if there be nothing in any of these numerous and repeatedly adopted platforms iwo Kingto such interference is it not just and reasonable to infer that no such design is harboured in the beasts of tie republicans As a party ? is it not incredible even to presume any such fully and madness on the part of a Large body of reflecting intelligent shrewd men no matter what their horror of slavery in in be ? we submit that the examiner has signally failed in efforts to sustain Broad and i sweeping charge against Hij lie publican party. We submit too that it will fail much More Sisr Nally in Misc ii Evious Endeavor to fill the mull soothe Southern people with needless Appi Hension of a violent attack on their institutions by tiie republicans of the North. We Feci it our duty to whisper in the ear of the examiner that it is sadly mistaken in supposing tie Southern people to be fools and ignoramuses and in taking for granted therefore that it can induce them to believe that the lie publican party meditate the overthrow of slavery in the Southern states. It is equally mistaken in supposing that the great mass of Southern people Are not As familiar with Tho principles purposes and designs of the Republican party As itself is. Being Able to read and being in the habit of Reading they have Long a Ince acquainted themselves with the fact that there is nothing in the world in the teachings and avowal of the republicans As a party which indicate the atrocious abolition intent which the examiner obviously for party purposes imputes to them. But overlooking and passing by the National and state platforms of the Kepubli-�2ans, the examiner turns sit Tention to the declarations of some of the Republican leaders and claims to have found in Liose declarations positive and convincing proof that the Republican party is committed to the idea of Quot employing any and All Means to extirpate slavery fron the Southern states whether by the bayonets of foreign enemies or by the Torch and knife of the rebellious it quotes in the first place the a Quot irrepressible conflict Quot declaration of Seward a with which our readers Are Queady familiar and argues that that is an evidence of the purpose it attributes to the Republican party when in fact it professes to be Only an opinion a a belief on the part of Seward himself that slavery and Freedom cannot exist together. And yet in that same s Cecii is found the emphatic declaration of Seward that As of ugh As be desires the abolition of Swery in the Southern a Tats he does note pet or Hope for such a result except Throin a the cuon of the people of the slave fittes Andin Confori mity with their respective constitutions Quot a and which declaration in the Antnio Augousta to nth the died Pebet Fladt hts every where when the morning Paperel a announce i the death of Quot a.

Everywhere it was the same Story Quot he died his family and his friends thought so As they gathered around the bedside of the dying Man and you Reader would have Tho t so too if Vou could have looked around that chamber into which death was entering with his dumb footfalls and his ghastly presence. Of it was a princely room rare pictures flushed the Walls that Winter a Lay with the glory of Arcadian Summers the fairest blossoms of Southern Mays were piled thick upon the costly carpet and the daintily embroidered drapery fell in soft crinkled Clouds from the massive Bedstead. And the owner of All this a if Cence Lay there dying and through All his life of More than Vears he has toiled and struggled for this to die Rich. And had bought lands and sold them he had sent richly it weighted ships to foreign ports he had owned shares in railroads and Stock Banks and now a there was an Angel who stood at the bedside of John Russell in that dying hour and the Man had nothing out of All his life to give him no generous Noble sacrificing deeds which would have been pearls and Gold and All precious jewels in the hand of the Angel so he wrote Down at the close of the last chapter of John Russell s life Quot file a led Quot he died a very few persons said this of an old Man who Lay in a Back chamber of a Small dilapidated building whose solitary window looked out on the Back Garden of John Russell s residence. The floor was Bare and there were Only a few chairs a table and a Low bed in the room. By the Side stood an old woman whom the dying Man had occasionally furnished with an armful of Wood or a loaf of bread. She moistened his cold lips with water or held the tallow Candle close to his dim eyes so that he might see once More the Light of this world. He had riot a Dollar upon Earth his Fortune had taken wings and flown away his wife and his children had gone before him his friends had deserted or lost sight of him and now none remained to watch with the old Man till death called him but the grateful old woman whom he had saved from starvation. But the Angel with the Book stood there too and looking Over the old Man s life he saw How Many Good and gentle and generous do cd brightened Here every year Liow he had been kind to the suit eng. And forgiven such wrongs As m Ikima i Friend and striven through All the trials and of his Long sad life to be True to god and himself. A the Angel wrote under the last chapter of this old Man s life every letter shone like some rare setting of diamonds. Quot Jle die4 and the old Man knew it too when he stood at the Silver Gates of a he eternal City and they led him in and shored him the a to which he was to Ere was the House not made with hands with columns of Pearl and ceilings of Jasper with pleasant rooms and mighty organs from which peals for Ever the notes of Praise to our god.

Then the fiends in human shape rushed upon the unarmed defenceless Brown and actually hacked him to pieces with their hatchets. A slaveholder named Gibson dealt the fatal blow burying a Hatchet in the Side of Brown s head splitting his Skull 4 inches and scattering his brains.

Y. Times contains a very thorough and scientific description of a trial trip of the great Eastern from a special correspondent whom the times describes As an american Engineer who has taken a professional interest in the matter. The general conclusion is that while the expectations of the Public unduly wrought up by incompetent authorities Are disappointed those of the projectors Are abundantly verified. Thus while the vessel be advantageously employed for a Mere transatlantic service it is perfectly adapted to the Long australian voyage for. Which it was designed. It cannot attain a Speed of 20 Miles per hour but it can accomplish a rate of 15 Miles. It cannot make a trip from Liverpool Quot to new York in five Days but it can in 10. It does not wholly obviate the discomforts of a sea voyage. It does not go through the Waves instead of Over them but it does pitch and Roll so slightly As to cause Little serious distress to the passengers. Other Points of interest Are developed by the trial. The Security of the vessel is imperfect. The bulkheads Are neither fire tight nor water tight. Important valves Are not As they should be automatic. The apparatus for super heating steam is Only to be availing at the Cost of great peril. The machinery is very far from having that completeness and that proportion people have been led to anticipate. The boilers Are inadequate to furnish the Power required by the engines and the Donkey engines Are by no Means As serviceable As certain american inventions of the same kind. The machinery for raising and handling the anchors is likewise of indifferent the other hand the vessel is under perfect control of the Helm with no greater a mount of Force than is required by a first class irrigate. The consumption of Coal is moderate and the engines work with none of the stiffness of new machines. The inn Loh Formis by the writer is thu amp upon the whote hot in amp Morable to clubs. Indeed he does not hesitate to pronounce it a Success. He says that her trip to this country will not be delayed till of it ring. The directors have determined to Des Patti her on or soon after.

The Pari. Constitutional of the 14th, publishes an Articie signed by Secretary Boris each stating that the Only question to be settled at Zurich is the Lombard debt. The contracting Powers being agreed on All other Points. The question will be submitted to a Congress. Chart Estow in the storm of last evening prevented the transmission of the latter part of the proceedings of the court. The court finally refused to postpone the trial and the whole afternoon was occupied in obtaining a jury. Brown occupied a cot on which he was carried into the court room. The trial will be resumed this morning when a counsel for Brown is expected from Ohio. New Herald series of letters Cool.
