DISSOLUTION- or ABOLITION'. AMiti-m, im

They and their bought traitors from the North
would be powerless. W'e aro ready for all the conse,

whatever consequence may he threatened, and ac
tually follow. Liberty i raoro precious than lifo,
and freedom than human blood. Let it Bow, if lt
must, but let us not dishonor humanity by combin
ing with despots, tu be rewarded with slavery. But
the idea of any bloody resistance is supremoly lu-1
dicrou. A mercenary spirit, a spirit of sect and
party and compromise, has made cowards of our
people, brave though they arc by uature, and made
to lie moral heroes. The bullies may rnnt.nnd rave
but if in good earnest w e desert them, for their
lives they dare not strike. Let us pitch upon somo
thorough measure like dissolution, and their sub
mission is at hand.
But we fear no such radical measure will be
adopted. Conservative opponents of the moasuro
will content themselves with uniting with tricky
politicians in tho cry of "rejical," with voting for
somebody to go to Congress, who says he is opposed
to this measure.

We differ wi:h tho Gazetlo in regard to

as the South pledged it?elf to maintain liberty,
pledge was sacred because of its nature. But
far as tho "compromise" went, it was diabolical,
becaiiHC it was a surrender of freedom. Noverlhe

But the Gazette is right when it proposes

KIDNAPPING IN NEW YORK.
On Tvrsday, three slaves, one the brother,
other two nephews of Rev. J. W. Pennington, were
seized in New York, and on Thursday they wore
adjudged slaves by the Commissioner, and com
mitted to the Marshal for return to slavery. They
made their escape from Sharpsburgh, Maryland,
on fhe Sunday previous. They were taken through
Philadelphia on the 27th, where they were met
the Maryland Marshal and returned to their chains.
How this seizure and mock trial was conducted,
our reader! will learn by the following, which
extract from the Trrbune'i account:
"A set forth in the affidavit these alleged.

authorities. (By what authority, or rule of
the appliances of our Corporation were thus
to subserve the interests of Maryland, we have
been informed.) About 8) o'clock, as near as
could ascertain, the Marshal of this Dlstriot,
Y. Hillier, carried the fugitives before U.
Marshal. George W. Morton, where the case
up for the most summary and hasty hearing
has ever characterised our judicial proceedings.
The claimants, Messrs. Grove and Smith, were
by the law firm of Dunning and
of this city as counsel, while the defendant

MORE KIDNAPPING IN BOSTON.
Slave catchers grown bold in their impunity and
success, havo made another descent upon Boston.
Last week they stealthily seized a colored man in
that city called Anthony . Burns. He was taken
before a V. S. Commissioner, and put upon trial
for his liberty. The claimant, Charles F. Suttle,
of Richmond, V., wbo alleged that Burns mod
hii escape in March last. The following are the
proceedings bad in the case, so far as w hay
seen them i
William Brent was sworn and testified I am a
merchant, residing in Richmond ; know Charles T.
Suttle ; he ii a merchant ; know the boy, Anthony
Burns; the prisoner is said Burns t he is Suttle'
slave ; he was born in Suttle's fnmily ; I hired him
of Suttle in 1847-'8-'9: I know he was missing
from Richmond about the 24th of March last:
have not seen him thero since ; hare bad no con
versation with him here.
Richard II. Dana, Jr., Esq,, being present, now
rose and suggested that the examination should be
postponed, to afford tho prisoner time to select
counsel and prepare hi defence.
Mr. l'arker replied by saying uiat nu view or
the fact was, that the prisoner wa willing to g
with Suttle. and did not wish to make a dofeus.
and that delay would be inconvenient and expen
sive to Suttle and his witnesses, lie did not sx-
filain how be was authorized to speak in tbat way
ur the prisoner, while at work for the man who
seeks to carry him off as a slave.
Mr. liana urged Ins point again, and maintained
that the consideration of inconvenience to individ
uals must sink out of sight when the liberty of a
human being is at stake. C. M. Ellis also spok
ably in favor of delay, and urged that justice could
not suner by sucn a course.
In answer to an interrogation by the Comm'.
sioner, the prisoner signified his desire for delay, -
that he might consider what course is best tor him
to pursue, to defcud his liberty. Accordingly
Commissioner Loring postponed the further exam
ination of tbe case to Saturday next, at nine
o'clock A. M. Meanwhile the zuan will be kept
imprisoned in the Court Boom.
The arrest was made on Wednesday eveiing
and the proceedings noticed above occurred on
Thursday. Boston seems aroused somewhat in
the spirit of '70. The following telegrnphie dis
patches contaiu all we hare yet seen in regard to
the affair. It seems thwt a V, 8 Deputy Marshall
was shot dead in an attempted rescue. W have

THE ATTEMPTED RESCUE OF BURNS.
On Friday evening a meeting was held in Fan
ouil Hall, in roferonce to the arrest of Burns. A
series of resolutions were adopted and the meeting
was addressed by several gentlemen, among them
Theodore Parker and Wendoll Philips. There
was much excitement at the meeting, and multi
tudes went from thence to join the crowd at tbe
On tbe abrupt termination of the meeting in'
Faneuil Hall, the excited crowd rushed for Court-'
square, pell-mell, shouting, " ltescuo bim !" "Re-'
cue him!" io. Entering upon the eastern avenue, -
in the space of a minute or two, several hundred
people had collected.- The officers in tbe building
closed tho doors, when some dozen people, some
of whom were colored,- rushed up the itepi and '
commenced pounding on the doors. A pistol was
fired by some one in the crowd. A pistol was '
shortly fired on the westerly side of the Court-'
House, when the crowd rushed around the building.
Here some two thousand people collected in a very
brief space of time. Several pistols were fired in '
Tbe crowd immediately commenced an assault
upon the south door, on the west side, with axes,
aud a battering-ram, in the shape of a' heavy beam, '
some twelve feet long, which was at ones ln'tmched
upon the stout oak dour, ihe battering-rm wa:
manned by a dozen or fourteen men, white' and
colored, who plunged it against the door untif

been thrown at the windows, and tbe glass rattled
in all directions. The leadors, or those who ap
peared to act a ring-leaden in the melee, continu
ally shouted i " Rescue him 1" " Bring him out I"
' Bring him nut V "Where is he 1" Ac., ic. The
Court-House bell rung an alarm at 9 o'clock.
When the door were opened, two or three per
sons rushed into the entry, but the officers in the
building, who were mastered in full force on the
stairs, gave the valorous) rioter so warm a recep
tion with clubs and swordbj, that they quickly li

in the entry, which appeared to ratixaidate the,
rioters somewhat, and they retreated to the oppo
site side of tho street. At this time, a large depq
tation of police from tbe Center Watch-House,,
arrived upon the ground, and in few moments
arrested several persons and took them to the
Watch-House. Stones were occasionally thrown
at the windows, and shouts continued to be made,
but the firm stand of tho omcen stationed within
the building, with the support they received from,
the police, prevented any furthor demonstration.
At the time the mob beat down the westerly
door of the Court-House, several man, employed;

Batchelder uttered tbe exclamation, "I'm tab

watchman Isaao Jones, expired almost immediate
