THD PRESIDENTS MESSAGE.
MILTON, Stark Co., Jan, 12, 1856.
Fkiickd Mahics: It should 1e remembered
1h.t it i universally admitted, nnd conceded, liotli
ly Whigs, Pcmociats, nnd Free Soilers, thnt the
Constitution of onr counlvy recngnires the legal
constitutional right of Elavcholding. Tlio mes
sage of the President, as Tar as I have observed,
receives from the press universal condemnation.
But the in mucli anatlieinatited niessago is a de
fence of the fame promises, A vindication of the
same doctrine; nnd I enn not nee how any one,!
holding the view generally adhered to by the
mass of even Republicans, enn but ovf n, on exam
ination, that his deductions aro Constitutionally
lair and legitimate. Himself holding, an do free
noil Republican, with the great mass of the, peo
ple, that tlio Art. in Uio Constitution, which pro
vides for the return of "fugitircf from service, or
labor," relates to slaves; how can we w ith these
admissions, object to the expediency, or the right,
' nrged by the Tre ident, to amend that clanso of
tha statute which relates to fugitives so as to place
this important particular under tho regulations of
the Oeueral Government. "Thus, relieving it from
the obstaoles raisod up by tho Legislation of some
of the States." But this amounts to a fugitive-slave-law-making.
And its character and features
, are left to the predominant influenco of tho two
sections of the Union. Under the Major Southern
Influence, the late fugitive bill war enacted.
The character of future regulations in this niat
. ter, must be decided in like manner, by tho con
tending, sectional interests of the people, compos
ing the different sections of the Union. Then, 1
' lepeat, it seems difficult to show why, if the Con
stitution provides for the return of fugitive slaves
, why the Genoral Qevernment, not the State Gov
ernments should not regulate this mattor.
And on the hypothesis of Government, the mi
nority should rendcra willing obedience. 2. Where
, the President contends that the Wilmot proviso is
subject to repeal as any othor enactment of doubt
' ful Constitutional authority, who can object upon
political premises T None. Ifdono.it muBt be
done upon the ground that the Nation has no mor-
' tlon of her soil to slavery. That we have no right
neither legal, nor moral, to permit slavery to exist
any where, within the control of tlio Government.
We are, says an eminent writer, one peoplo, one
nation; ami we have no right, Constitutional or
'moral to permit the enslavement of any part of
the nation. But lake in connexion with this, the!
position taken in the Message, namely, "that new
Territoiies should be admitted, and organized with
out restrictions on this disputed point; and loft to
judge for themselves, whether they do, or do not,
admit of slavery.
I repeat, as much as we may loathe the doctrine,
that slavery may or may not be introduced any
whore, at the will of the people, still if, as Repub
licans wo own its constitutionality; it does appear
difficult to show, why it should not upon Coustitu
. tional grounds, be left to the voice of the people
settling these Territories. And this should teach
the necessity of raising our banner higher; which

Let us see. If ono portion of the Union may
why may not another. Or, why may not Kansas

footing with tho original States; with or without
: If admitted at all, must not, should not, now

. rest? If the Constitution dues not provido for
two classes of States, ono with Constitutional pro

constitutional every where, are tho only persons
who dure hold that cvou Congress can havo power
to proven! any free State, old or new, when onccin
the Union from changing its Constitution eo as to
introduce slavery whenever it choose tn do so.
Very plainly it would be folly to attempt it. Very
plainly would it be difficult for them to maintain
such a position. Why, because it would be affirm
ing that Congress can suppress slavery in some of
the States of the Union, but not in others of them '.
Thon if this bo so, and none will dispute it, the
Republican idea of limitation of slavery, amounts
to only this, in its sternest and most favorable pro-
. portions. Namely, if it wcro possible which it is
jiot, to keep slavery out of the Territories; thus
compelling them to come in, as free States; even
. this would be with the understanding that they
can, yes, that they may by change of Constitution
become slave States at any moment thereafter.
Then the utmost of the limitation doctrine is, we
may admit of slavery, "local slavery" nil over the
Union, when "National liberty" would be allowed
the ballance. Look at it. What a farce for this in
telligent, Reformatory, and progressive age. Is
this, even this, the only hope of tho 3,500,000
'slaves of this country? Is the nation to discharge
' its duties, and secure national freedom by a pro
. eess like this
This is but a sketch of one of the absurdities of
'the limitation theory. Why the call on tho Gener
al Government fur Wilmot Provisoes against the
sproad of slavery, is answered by Fedoral Legisla
tion against freedom where it bas long existed.
And State Legislation may enact slavery through
out the entire North to-morrow, upon the present
ground of contest.

LETTER THE HON. D. R. ATCHISON OF
MISSOURI, ON THE AFFAIRS OF KANSAS.
We embaaco tho earliest opportunity of .present
ing to tho people of Georgia nnd the South, a let
ter from tho lion. I). R. Atchison, on tho subject
of the affairs of Kansas, addressed to the senior
editor of this paper. It is n letter we feel satisfied
will bo read with intense intereet by every citizen
of our Stats.
Tho distinguished gentleman who has penned it,
and by whose permission it is published, has occu
pied, for a quarter of a century at least, an emi
nently high position among tlio statesmen of the
Union; and, in the Senate o! tho United States,
over which he presided with so much satisfaction
to that body, at a very recent period, be fairly
earned a reputation of which we can boast, as an
able and influential Senator, and an ardent advo
cate of Southern Rights Upon the statement of
such a man, even Georgian can rely. To bis ap
peal every Georgian should respond. He speaks
of Kansas to the South, for the sake not only of
those who are fighting its battles there, but for
Missouri, our sister, whose doom is certain in tho
event that Kansas is Abulitionized,
Accompanying the letter which wo publish, we
received another from the same gentleman, from
which wo make i few extracts. He says :
"We are in a constant stato of ex
citement here (Platte City). The border 'ruffians'
have access to my room day and night. Tho very
air is full of rumors. We wish to keop ourselves
right before the world, and we are provoked and
aggravated beyond suflerance. Our persons and
property aro not for a moment safe: and jet we
are forbid, by the respect we owe our friends else
where, by rospect for the cause in which we are
engaged, to forbear. This state of things cannot
last. Vou aro authorized to publish the whole or
a part of what I have written; but if Georgia in
tends to do anything, or can do anything fur rs,
let it be d-ine speedily !
"Let your young mon come forth to Missouri
and Kansas! Let them come well armed, with
money enough to support them for twelve months,
and determined tn see this thing out; One hun
dred true men will be nn acquisition. The more
the better. I do not see how we aro tn avoid civil
war. come it will. Twelve months will not elapse
before war civil war of the fiercest kind will be
upon us. We are arming and preparing for it.
Indeed, we of the tiorder counties are prepared.
We must have tho support of tho South. We are
fighting the battles of the South. Our institutions
are at stake. You fur Southern men are now out
of the naive of the war, but if we fail, it will reach
your own doors, pei haps your hearths. Wo want
men, armed men. We want money not for our
solves, but to support our friends who may come
from a distance. I have now in this house two
gallant young men from Charleston, S. C. They
are citizens of Kansas, and will remain so until
her destiny is fixed,
"Let your young men oome on in squads as fast
as they can be raised, well armed. We want
none but true men. 'Yours truly,
"D. R. ATCHISON.
"P. S. I would not be astonished if this day
laid the ground-work for a guerrilla war in Kansas.
I have beard of rumors of strifo and battle at
Leavenworth, seven miles from this place, but the
ice is running in the Mississippi river, and I have
nothing definite. I was a peace-maker in the
difficulty lately settled by Gov. Shannon, I coun
ciled the 'Ruffians' to forbearauec, but I will never
again counoil peace. "p. r. a."
Who can resist such an appeal f What chiton
or State the in South can turn a deaf car to it, and

BRIGHTON, Jan. 21. 1856.
To the Editor of lie Bugle:
A. M. Powell, J. II.
and Mary A. Phillco, of New York, lately comple
ted a series of nnti-slavery meetings, in this, nnd
adjoining towns of Milford and Howell. Jacob
Walton, Jr., of Adrian, assisted them in making
arrangements for meetings ic. This being anew
field, nnd the places being some ways apart, his
assistance, as well a3 sonvcyance were the more
needed. It would be hard to say which of the
lecturers contributed most to tho advancement of
the cause. '
As a moral surgeon, Phillco has few equals.
He can probo an ugly wound, or lop off a leprous
limb with the greatest facility. ' Many physicians
would pronounce Milford beyond the reach of
surgical aid. Its case is indeed next to hopeless.
When Pbilleo commenced oporating, the sufferings
of the patients must have been excruciating, judg
ing from their cries and contortions.
So great was their dclirium,that they even seem
ed to regard the Surgeon as tl.cir enemy, nnd
seemed determined to striko a knifo to his heart,
while he was merely endeavoring to relievo them
of dead nnd useless limbs.
Milford is a priestly place a religious place
just about as religious as Jerusalem was 1800
years ago. It is a Republican town, yet its inhab
itants havo never dreamed of occupying tho only
availahlo ground, that of 'No Union with Slave
holders.' It would not be strange, if the hunker
democratic town of Brighton should go into the
kingdom of Anti-Slavery before them.
The agitation caused; by these meetings is deep
and general, and bids fair to renovnto this pro-slavery
portion of Michigan. Tho fallow has been
well broken, its futuro cultivation should bo cared
for. Yours, Truly,
DISSOLUTION OF THE UNION.
Who sees not that to protect and prolong slavery
the Union still continues, nnd that that is now
madn the chief end of its mission? Who knows
not that the slaveholders generally udinit the fact
that, without the Union, slavery con d not stand a
single year? Will the South, thon, cut its own
throat, by demanding, or even consenting to, adis.
solution of tho Union ? Never ! Let no anti-slavery
man, therefore, hesitate, on that account, to
drive the Mother of Abominations to the wall, or,
in other words, begin to think of laving tho oxo to
the root of the treo. Crccn Mountain Freeman,
The Freeman does not seem t bo awaro'that its
logic is two-edged. If it be .1. "fact," as that pa
per assumes and the slaveholders are said to ad
mit, that the Union is the chief bulwark of slavery
without which it "could not stand a single yoar,"
why do Free Soil politicians and newspapers so
constantly stultify themselves by their professions
of devotion to tho Union? Why, but for lack of
moral coinage, do they not como out openly nnd at
once for its dissolutiou ! If they are in earnest
in their professions of hostility to slavery, why do
they not come to the aid of those who seek to de
molish its chief bulwark? In that way they would
lay the axe at tho root of the tree most effectually,
if the slaveholders love the Union, should not nnti
slavery men every where dcspino and loathe it ?

union hath Liberty with Slavery ? A. S. Standard.

The Last Act or Gov. Me dim. Almost; the
last and crowning act of Gov. Medill's administra
tion, was the repriove of George Seitzcr and John
Zumstein, sentenced by the Court to twenty days
imprisonment, for violation of liquor tho law. The
reprieve of twenty diys, is equivalent to a pardon,
as the time for their incarceration will then be
past. In return fur this, some of our retaileryes
terday, made up a package of choice liquors, and
forwarded to Columbus by express, to the (now)
Ex-Governor, to sustain bis patriotism through the

What a commentary on Republican institutions!
The largest owner of slaves in the country occupios
a scat in Congress, and makes law for freemen.
It is such glaring inconsistencies as this that imikes

. DIED, At his residence on the 2th ins'4 , in Go
shen Township, Mahoning County, Jons. C. Suinn,
aged 32 years, of Pleurisy, he was taken ill away
home, with tho billious fever, and by frequent Vio
lations of the laws of health, death ctfne to his
relief. He has. left a young wife with two small
children to mourn his loss; and in him the slave has
lost a friend, as his purse appeared always open to
the relief of suffering humanity in whatever shape
it was preseuted. We cannot think his death was
designed by a just God, for his work was scarcely
begun, and the number of such men are too few;
but wo must try and bo resigned and endeavor to
meet him in a brigliterpnd better world than this.
