Life or Death.—A True Story of the Natural
Bridge of Virginia.
BY ELIHU BURRITT.
The scene opens with a view of I lie great
Natural bridge in Virginia. .There are th.ee or
four lads standing in Hie channel below. The

impressive by the Utile stream llmt runs from
ruck toroca, down the channel. I he sun is
darkened, and the boys have unconsciously

Slone atuuoenls. A new feeling comes over
(heir hear s, and their kn.ves are in nsnd in
en instant. "What man has done, mm) can
do," is the Walchword, while they drawthem
selves up, and carve then names a fool above
.those ol a hundred full grown men, who had
, been Ihere before them.
They are alliatislied with this feat of physi
cal exertion except one, whose example illus
trales peilecily the forgotten truth, that there
is a royal road to intellectual eminence. The
mbitioua youih sees a name above bis reach
name Ibat shall be green in the memory of
the world, when those of Alexandet, Coar,
nd Bonaparte, shall rot in oblivion. It was
the name of Wasbingt n. Before he marched
with BuiiUoek to the fatal field, he had been
there and left his name a fool above all his
predecessors. It was a glorious thought of a
boy to write bis name aide and side with that
of the Father of his Cuuniry. ile grasps his
knife wiih a firmer hold and clinging to a l.t
tie jutting crag, he cuts in ihe limestone about
foot above where he atands; butts he puts
ilia feet and bands into these gains, end finds
himself a foot above every name encircled on
that mighty wall, be is slill unsati&fied.
While hit companions are regarding Mm wiih
concern and admiration, be cuts his name in
buge capitals, large and deep into the . flinty

canra his name in large capitals. This is not
enough. ., Heedless of the entreaties of bis
coinpanious, be cuts and climbs again. The
graduation of hia asftendiug scale glows wider
apart.: Ha measures his height at every gain
be culs. The Toices of his friends grow
weaker, till their words are finally lust upon
bis ear. He now,, for ;he first time, casts a
look beneaib dim. - Had that glance lasted a
moment, thai moment would have been his
last. He clings with a convulsive shudder to
bis little niche in the rock. Au awful abyss
awaits his almost .certain fall, lie is luinl
(mm severe exertion, and trembling from the
audden view of the dreadlul destruction lo
which be is exposed. His knile is worn hall

. It is impossible to put his hands in I he same
niche with but feet, and retain bis bold a mo
ment. His companions instantly perceived
this pew and. fearful dilemma, and await his
fall with emotions that "freeze their young
blood." - He is too high, too (ami, to ask for
bis falber and mother, his brothers and sisters,
to come and witness or avert his destruction.
But one of bia companions anticipated bis de

A Religion for Mere Taste.
Thre is a class of minds (hat contemplate
religion chiefly aa a matter of laste. IMhtical
and imaginative, they see everything through
ihe golden haze of lancy. They talk mucti
ihe religious sentiment, ana appeal to the
feeling of mortal beauty as the persuasive to
virtue. We confess '.he charm ol their wri
tings, and often linger over their pages. But,
after all, what do we find in the brilliant rhap
sodiest It it tbe spirit of poetry, which silvers
the world wiih moon light; beautiful, but cold.
Such reverie may fascinate the niiud in i
drean.y moods; but they cannot conquer the
stormy passions, uor subdue the terrified de
pravity of a human soul. It is astonishing how
lilt let nracticle power a religion haa wmcn ue-
pendx en art, on painting and music, and ca
thedrals. Sentiments of beauty hare their
place in the worship of Cod. They may al
iraot to the porch of the temple, but when we
enter and become really interested, thtse
shght emotions give place lo deeper feelings.
Then we ate not merely creatures of taste, but
guilty and wretched beinga coming lo God for
mercy and salvation; no pieacning can ue re
ally powerful which does not touch these
mighty chords of the human soul. No man
ever preached with great effect who did not
feel that religion wu.i someiuiug more iiiuu
beautilul, end that life was more ihan a thea
ter for oclinf, or fnr the display of sensiuilily.
No man can preach with power who due not

Congre'sionul Globe ofSeptember 11,1850
In Senate oh U. S., Sep. 11, 1S50.
Mr. Underwood of Kentucky, colled up the
bill for lh aid of the American Colonization
Society The slovea that were recaptured on
the barcue Pons were turned over to the Uni
ted Sioies; sent to Liberia, ond there kept at
me expense ot the society lor one or two years
Most of thun were children from twelve to
fifteen, and sixteen years of age. The society
thought I ne expense of feedmg.clothing.arid ed
uculing these people which wa3 thus devolved
upon them by the action of the government
ought to be repaid them. It was certainly an
expense incurred by the society, thtough the.
oction of the government in throwing those
young negroes upon them lor maintenance,
instead of taking them, as the government was
hound to do by law, one providing lor them.
That is the nature of the claim. They simp
ly ask that to much shall be paid them as the
society, irom its own experience, pays in ref
erence to its own emigrants. The claim was
reported on fuvornbly two years ago. A simi
lur report has again been made, and as tie ne

Atrocities Committed in Kausas by the Lane,
Reeder and Massachusetts Emigrans Aid
Party—Freemen, Read ?
We invite the attention of our readers to
the following article, which we take from Ihe
Lecc.mpton (Kansas Territory) Union of the
19th ult. Tbe Lnisn says :
Mas. Wn.KMsos'i Testisiont Could the
masses of the people of the North have beheld
the scene we did on last Friday, the 13th of
June, we would no longer feel apprehensive
ol Kansas troubles. We speak of Mrs. vv ilk
ernon's testimony, the widow of Allen Wilk
erson, who, was so inhumanly murdered near
Osawattomie by five hired assassins of the Em
igrant Aid Society. Her tale was one of deep
sorrow and affliction. Near her tluod her
three little orphan children, clinging lo their
mother, as she related the incidents ot their
father's murder. She told of their leaving
borne, parents and fiiends in Tennessee and
coining to Kansas lo make them a new home
and new friends. On arriving in Kansas, her
busband found the country in commotion, and
a deadly hostility seemed maturing between
the two parties, (Pio-slavery and Free Slate)
in Kansas. Her busband had always been a
conservative man, and bad no desire to par
ticipate in such extraneous movements. He
was several times called upon by the "Free
Slate men," who had a majority in the neigh
borhood, and pressed to join them. He lold
them he was Pro slovtry from principle, but
was at the same time a strong '.'Kansas Ne
braska bill man," and would recognize that
Constitution pass-ed by a mojority of the legit
imate citizens of Kansas. From that time he
was denounced by them, and his life threaten
ed because he would not forsake his principles
and act with them under the order of the "Aid
Society," and their deputy 1'obinson. When
the March election come around .Mr. Wilker
son was elected a member of the House, and
proved himself a worthy and active member,
alwais standing upon conservative grounds.
This set another price upon his head, and be
was hunted down by these scoundrels who
were seeking his life. When our late trou
bles btgar, Mr. Wilkerson remained at home
to protect his family from the bonds of these
men who 4iod so frequently threatened their
lives. Mrs. Wilkerson says her husband had
not been out, or taken sny part, only as far as
the expression of his private sentiments. Il
Was found out he could reveal Some very im
portant facts before the "invtsligoting Com
mittee," and there now stands upon record
sufficient proof to estublish this as the grand
cause of this rrurdcr. He may have been kill
ed any how, hut perhaps these bloodhounds
would not hove been so soon "set on" by their
employers. This tended to hasten his death,
and on the night of the 25tli of May five men
visited liia bouse and dragged him from his
bed, his bouse and U.e bosom of his family,
and amid the screams of his wife and children
bore him off a short distance into a ravine, and
performed one of the mint cold blosdej mur
ders upon record. When Mrs. Vt ilkerson
came lo this part of ber testimony, every eye
in the room was filled with tears she several
times was stopped with sobbing, in relating
her appeals for the men to spare her husband.
We repeat if only this sorrow stricken
widow, suiroundcd by her little orphan chil
dren, Ihat have so suddenly and unmercifully
been thrown upon the world's cold charily, by
the hands of hired assassins, could present
themselves before the masses of the North and
East, as we saw them, and relate their simple
tale of truth, wbai a different feeling would
possess some who have been swindled into a
wrong belief about our troubles, by the lying
employers of thai damnable "New England
Aid Society." And this i not the only picture
we would like to show them hundreds be
sides, as inhuman, bs cold blooded and revolt
ing munlers, are daily occurring in our midst.
We are sometimes almost templed lo give up
in despair, hen we have exhibited daily tbe
foul ploy of our enemy. This is not a war of
principles; one party stands upon the platform
of principle, supported by the Constitution
and the laws, while tbe other disclaims all,
Ve have to comhat with an enemy who oc-
knowleuges otjciiience lo no power not recog
nized by the "Northern army" or Emigrant
Our citizens are dragged from their beds aud
butchered before their families, and we have
to wait the touly process of law to visit jus
tice upon the di.ers of such deeds; and that ia
not all, even outof their own deeds they man
ufacture for Northern consumption lying re
ports Foi example, in the murder ot Wilker
son they dare attempt, in the face of direot
proof, lo fabricate a case ot self delense, and
that "mouth piece-' of all "low bred isms"
al the North, (ihe New York TVi&ime,) is
sounding it abroad. But we can rend in the
political history of our country a change tak
ing pi ce with Ihe mosses, and Ibe day of
retributive justice is not far distant. Agog
shall soon be placed in the mouth of tnese paid
liars and disturbers ol our common country,
and their underlings, who have been hereto
tore successful in evading the law iu Kausas,
hung higher thJii "daman."
Have They Any Hope of Success?
While a great many of the lesser lights of
the Republican party are jubilant over the
nomination of Fremont, and profess sanguine
hopes of achieving a most overwhelming victo
ry, the New York Tribune, the leading organ
of the parly cannot delude itself into a belief
UiaKlie chances in favor of the ticket afford
any reasonable assurance of its election.

Important Speech of Mr. Fillmore at Albany,
N. Y.—His Denunciation of the Black Republicans.
We make the following important extract
from the lata speech of Mr. Fillmore at Albany
N. Y., Mr. Fillmore raid:
Sir, you bave been pleased to say (hat I
have the union of ihese States at heart. This,
sir, is most ttue, for if there be one object
dearer to me than any other, it ia the unity,
prosperity and glory of Ibis great Republic,
and 1 confess frankly, sir, that 1 tear it ia iu
danger. I say nothing of any particular seo
t ion, much less of tbe candidates before the
people. I presume tbey are all honorable
men. But, sir, what do we see? An exas
perated feelirg between the North and the
South, on the most exciting of all topics, re
sulting m bloodshed and organized military ar
ray. But litis is not all, sir. We ste a polit-
cal party presenting candidates for the Presi
dency and Vice Presidency, selected for Ihe
first time from the free Stales alone, with the
avowed purpose cf electing these candidates
by suffrages of ore part of the Union only to
rule over the United States. Con it be possi
ble that those who are engaged in such a
measure can hate seriously reflected upon the
consequences which must have inevitably fol
low, in case of success? (Cheers.) Cair
they bave the madness or folly to believe that
our Southern brethren would submit lo be gov
erned by such u chief rrsgistrotef (Cbeers.)
Would be be required to follow the same rule
prescribed by those who elected him in ma
king hi.) appointments? If a man living south
ol Mason and Dixon's line be not worthy to be
CresiUeut or Vice President, would it be pro
per to select one Irom the same Quarter, as one
of his Cabinet Council, or to represent the na
tion iu a loreign country? Or, indeed, to col
lect the revenue, or administer the lows of the
Uuiled States? If not, what new rule is the
I resident to adopt for selecting men for office
that the people themselves discard in selecting
him? These are serious, but practical ques
tions, and in order lo appreciate them lull),
it is only necessary to turn the tables upon
ourselves. Suppose that the South, having a
majority of the electoral votes, should declare
that they would only have slaveholders lor
President and Vice President,- and should
elect such by their exclusive suffrages to rule
over us at the North. Do you think we would
submit to it? No, not for a moment. Ap
plause. And do you believe that your South
ern brethren are less sensitive on this subject
than you are, or less jealous of their rights?
Tremendous cheering. If you do, let me tell
you thai you are mistaken. And, therefore,
you must see that if tins sectional party suc
ceeds il leads inevitably to ihe destruction of
this beoutiful fabric, reared by our forefathers,
cemented by their b ood a'nd bequeathed to us
as a priceless inheritance. I tell you, my
friends, that I speak warmly on this subject,
for I feel that we are in danger. I am deter
mined to make a clean breast of it. I will
wash my hands of the consequences, whatever
they may be; and I tell you that we are tread
ing upon the brink of a volca o that is liable
U any moment to burst forth and overwhelm
the nation. I might, by soft words, hold out
delusive hope, and thereby win voles.
Prophecy of Clay.
Doth Clay and Calhoun foresaw Ihe lament
able conclusion which parties in this country
have now reached, and predicted Disunion as
the inevitable result of such a state of affairs.
Mr. Clay, i:i his speech in the Senate, Feb
ruary 7, 1839, thus daguerreotyped tbe very
aspect of affairs in the year 1856:
"Sir," said Mr. Clay, " am not in the habit
of speaking lightly of the possibility of dissolv
ing Mils happy linoii. The Seuaie know that
1 have deprecated allusion:?, on ordinary occa
sions, lo that direful event. The oountry will
testily that, if there be snything in the history
of my public career worthy of recollection, it
is the truth and sincerity of my ardent devotion
to its lasting preservation. Hut we should be
false iu our allegiance to it, if we did not dis
criminate between tbe imaginary and real dan
gers by which it may be assailed. Abolitionism
should no more be regarded as imaginary dan
ger. The Abolitionists, let me suppose, sue
ceed iu their present aim, of uniting the in
habitants of the free States, as one man,
against the inhabitants of the sieve States. .
Union on our side will beget union on the
other, and this processof reciprocal consolida
tion will be attended b) all the violent preju
dice, embittered passions, and implecable an
imosities which ever degrnded or defotmed
human nature. One section will
stand in menacing and hostile array againstthd
other. Thecollision of opinion will bequickly
followed by the clash of arms. I will not at
tempt to describe scenes which now happily
lie concealed from our view. Abolitionists
themselves would chrink back in dismay and
horror at tbe Contemplation of desolated fields,
conflagrated cities, murdered inhabitants, and
the overthrow of the fairest fabrio of human
government that ever rose to animate the hopes
of civilised man."
Politics in New York.
We hove no doubt that the Democratic
union will be consummated in New York, and
that but one Buchanan and Breckinridge e'ec
toral ticket will be run in the State. The
New York Next, the organ of the Hards, ad
vises (heir committee to reconsider and change
the time of Ibe Hard Stale Convention from
the 6ib of August to the 30th of July. The
Fellow Democrats, we must have I union
ticket this (all; we must carry New YorkState
for Buchanan and Breckinridge, and we must
have n Democratic Governor and Legislature.'
We are willing to concede the point at to the
dty, and change back to the 30th July.
