Every intelligent and Quot reflecting Man who has become acquainted with the doctrines taught by abolitionists must feel and know that such doctrines Are diametrically opposed Constitution of the United states and to the spirit of the Laws and institutions we a people and a nation live under.

What More rights do Tho people want than they now enjoy slavery is As it were a sore of the body of Uncle Sam and if it cannot be without endangering by Tho treat me life of the old gentleman then it will to Best to let the disease take its course.

The foreign news is important it is paid Ful to know that so Many Gallant men from co and England Havo been sacrificed to the Folly and arrogance of their respective governments but we feel great satisfaction at the defeat of the allies. We wish them to to soundly thrashed by Russia and driven in Ignominy from the Crimea. They Havo refused fair and honorable terms of peace and have been for some time prosecuting a War of aggression to humiliate Russia. To Are Happy to observe a great change in the tone of Manj Quot of our exchanges in reference to to subject we regret that Tho Success of the Russia was not More decisive it was Only eur us to wound Tho Pride of the allies aliasing their Amiga us. Gov Wright s a lilt to a washing i we present our Road Era this morning Tho decision of the Secretary of the Treasu Tyi upon the subject of the three per cent fund due the state together with the briefs and argument of the governor. We Are glad that the governor has asked the opinion the president upon this question. In this Way to will doubtless obtain tie opinion o the attorney general of the United states.

If it is right to refuse a state admission because its Constitution sanctioned slavery would it not a right to turn out of Tho Union All the slave states the truth is if abolitionism is Iuit checked. And a Muawad to get the Ascendancy it will either drive the South to secession or the North being abolition will secede from Tho South. If suit could Only to brought about no doubt to abolitionists would be perfectly Delight d. Soon however in Case of a dissolution of Tho Union the North and the South would boat War the people would b. Course heavily taxed to support such a railroads school houses churches., would cease to be built Tho South would not 1. The Yankees have Cotton to keep their a. Tones going nor would they buy shoes hats clothes agricultural Imp lenient or any of the thousand things they Are now in the habit of buying of the North. In the end the North might whip and conquer the South and set All the slaves free Niter which event Tho negroes of the South would naturally Fly to the embrace of their friends and Breth Rou of the North when a general Jubilee and into Minkung of the race would Tiko place perhaps would come or Porad Ventiere it would not for the free slaves ight forgot to work and become in Many ses a tax on the Whites or perhaps they iving never before been paid any wage for air Walior save food and clothing they ight work at very reduced Prii a which uld of course Iii do Ioji poor White Lahore in the free Stales. After All things lion old have taken place Yot would the Black be a slave not a slave under the Law but a slave to custom and the Laws that govern society. I to name of the roae would be changed yet t would Quot smell not the a Mere Biango othe condition of the slave is not that should be desired but it should be the Hellering of the condition of the poor slave that a hat Oveis Good Man have at heart v a that to to accomplished la the great question involved in the whole subject is Tal and physical difference be race which produces a natural instinct of dislike and Una Lonesa for cach Ather s society on terms of Equality if there is then Tho Best advice we can give Tho Blacks is to Odis of Thom to separate film to o hits who if from no other cause being in the majority must Ever be the masters or rulers of the Blacks. If such is the Case let every philanthropist then go in for colonization which will be to the Blacks free glom in deed and in truth. It is strange that Abolila Ionata should oppose emancipation and also say so Little of the wrongs inflicted by Tho Whites on the free Blacka of Tho free Statica. It would seem from their Alonco Aud oversight of the wrongs done to the Blacks it Home that All their pretended philanthropy consisted in nothing More nor less than their envy and hatred to slave Lei a. If such is the Case the quirk or they cease establishing underground railroads and in establishing abolition presses for the sole purpose of abusing and column rating slaveholders Tho better it will be for the country for there is no Good sense in stirring up the passions of men to commit wicked deeds and in preventing them being Good neighbors. If Tho Constitution and Pur present form of government were destroyed and All Tialavea Sot free and the Baoliu nista wer. Allowed to make and fashion new Laws and customs to suit themselves in nil probability they would make to improvement on of present Constitution and system of govern ment but All the Laws they would Maki would be a imperfect is themselves that Clouds would again arise and at most the world to wag along As usual. Tho foregoing remarks have not been penned or prompted Mth unkind feelings to disc rap. Tho Bio a peace must to a crushing blow. Perhaps Tho death of Louis Napoleon ight have Tho effect of scouring peace.

A writer in the citizen indulges in some very alarming rhetoric on what he Calls Quot Tho Throat toned doom of to infers that the words of a speech recently made by Prince a beet foretell Tho intention of a royalist coup d rial in that country. Ireland has certainly suffered great injustice from the English Govoni ment and her sons Havo Good right to complain but their exaggeration often degenerates into Absurdity tie idea of n grand conspiracy among Tho aristocracy to overthrow the Cor Stitmon of Tho realm is worthy of the Fertile fancy of an irishman.

The object of Tia exhibit of said fund is to present to the proper department the question of the propriety of withholding said funds believing the state of Indiana to to a Mere trustee for Tho people of Tho state the counties in Indiana having the control of said fund by their boards of commissioners the state acting Only in a fiduciary character and by virtue of the act of Congress of 1810, said fund being at the disposal of the legislature for the purpose a Foresaid.

The prosaic a lion and Sotu Pelion of this work has added t the wealth of the United Stales enhancing Ali value and increasing the sales of their land and As a further Vemuri Ealion for said Grant is Quot provided that Tho said canal when con plated shall to and forever remain a Public Highway for the use of the Gove Romeril of the United Stales free from any loll or Olber charge whatever for any properly of the United Stales or persons in to Weir Sarvice passing through tire we submit however that the state never received for the building of amount of lauds contemplated by the Grant.

If a computation of these items were fairly made the stale would still to fou Iid entitled to a Quantity of lands not less than 500,000 acres and it is pert Iuone Here to re state that Ever the gift she did receive was in due time brought Forth in tire Days of her Ami adversity As the roman matrons surrendered their jewels to the state and honorable Given to her creditors rather than the least imputation should rest upon her Good Falth in View of what has been above suggested we submit that Congress should pay to the state the amount due her by solemn compact of the three per cent fund so called that the obligation viewed by itself is Nain. Fringed and in full Force. And further thai the excess of equivalent rendered to the general government by the honest Demeanour of her Zens in the Purchase of the Public lands w out consequently at advanced prices by the stipulated exemption from taxation of All lands sold by the faithful construction of highways and Bridges and the super added and unaided construction of her railways fairly entitle her to the generous treatment of the government with reference to Tho Bonds of the stale which she holds. And when in addition to these considerate.

They cannot but ask whether they in turn suffering Pniler some imagined or real wrong of the Geu Oral government touching a foreign matter would be justified in retaliating by appropriating the in obeys received from the three agree per cent fund to some other end than that which Thoy Are pledged. And yet they 1 alow to see any More Mirulo in like action on part of the general love moment than on in own part and they find it hard to believe la the general love moment will persist in a Cou on the one part which Tho Jwo ple of Indiana could never for one moment think of adopting month Solhei. To Are Well aware that the action of Thi general government in the three mounting on the 3lbt Dav of. Si01,0c0 7. I was adopted As an offset for the of interest by the state of Indiana on her Bonds which had fallen into the Possession of the Federal Treasury. But in regard to this to respectfully Imit 1. That if the state has been guilty of an aseged act of bad Faith in one transaction it is a very doubtful justification either in Law or morals for Tho United state to violate her Good Faith in another and distinct Case. 2 that even if such offset is Ever allowable it is at least suing that regard should be bad to the analogy of cases. In the transactions alluded to no such regard in seemingly had.
