whole countrv will eay: "Let them fight it

We auote the following article from the7Vi'
H of Wednesday, as a sample of the efforts of
the Republican diseunioniete, to prevent any
compromise from being agreed on in Congress:
Certain men at Washington, of whom the Re
publican party has a right to demand better
things, are doing their utmost to induce Repub
lican members of Congreei, to vote for the adop
tion of Compromise measures, which will hum
ble the Free Spirit of the country. And cer
tain Senators and Representatives, whose con
stituents do not dream of their lack of fidelity
to principle and duty, are yielding graollJ to
these seductions. Let the People of the North
ply their servants at Washington with borne In
fluences, that shall encourage the faithful,
strengthen the faltering, and recall to their
senses those who mediate defection. Theontis

that the term " Personal Liberty Bill " Is a
title or designation given to certain laws passed
in a number of the States of the North, through
the Influence of rabid Abolitionists, since the
enactment by Congress of the fugitive slave law
of 1850,and which, under the pretence of guard
ing and protecting the personal liberty of the
citizens in the States passing eucn taws, were
In fact, designed and intended as laws under
which to resist the execution of . tne fugi

of no effect, within the limits of such States.
Iostead of being called "Liberty VtntnalU
their titles should be Acta to nullify the Constitu

The Democratic Legislature of 1858-9 re

Mr. BROWNE, of Miami,' eaid he bad no In
tcrest in the matter, for be would go home
whenever it suited him.
Mr, VORIS said we have been here for only
two working days, when It Is deliberately pro
posed to adjourn over two working days, thus
leaving the business of this body for that period
of time to take care of itself I do not ap
prove of such action. An honest discharge of
our duties here demands the deloatol the whole
proposition. j ,
What is the ex juse offered for this procee
dure? i We are told it is to go home to confer
with our constituency; this is hardly an excuse.
now many oi our constituency could we corner
with if we did go home? .We were not sent
here with the view (but we should go from the
place or duty so soon, upon such a weak pre
text as this. Such conference would most likely
indicate that we hod better stay here and at
tend to our duties aud discharge them speedily
and faithfully. We were sunt here to labor for
and look after the interests of the State, but
the resolution proposes to take a holiday Irom
Friday till Monday at 3 o'clock p. m., which in
effect would be till Tuendav morning, thus iu
terrupting the busincw of this body before we
have fairly got at work.
We felt the evil effects of such a course last
winter, when we adjourned over every third
Saturday and Monday, yet every Saturday and
Monday we were in session It was almost
impossible to transact business on account of
the absence of members. I confess that I am
not entirely free from blame for the evils of
that session, but having seen the evils, I shall
not consent to the adoption of a course that
will bring the same evils upon us at this sit
ting. Our constituency expect us to be here they
expect a faithful uttuntion to our duties which

Vf the Speaker, from R. P. Spauldingand 29
for tne enrollment oi
troops is made upon tbe State, and offering to
6Vi t regiment or snob recruits.
Mr. ANDREWS moved that the memorial
was insnlttng to the Honse. - ' '
Mr. STEADMAN replied and assured the
House that the petitioner wat serious, and from
his blgb character at,home, It it Impossible that
he could intend an Insult to the House.
Mr. VORI3 made tha earn assurance, and
defended the right of petition aa saored, and
attributed tbe treatment or petitions to con
gress, muoh of the trebles now threatening tne
country. : : t
Mr. BRUFF thought the memorial not pro
per to be received, as It asked the House to as
sume the prerogatives of the executives.
Mr. BROWNE, of Miami, thought tbe me
morial was rsspectlul, and the eharacter of tbe
memorialist, he thought forbid It.
Mr. FLAGG depreoated tbe object of this
memorial. He said there waa enough of inoen
Sisrv materia.! nranoaed to be used acaintt the
unhappy people or tne ooutn, now in oreaa oii
tbt auxiliaries ol the abolitionists and'those whd
sympathize with tbem here, and make them-l
. - , .
selves the Iricnos oi jonn Drown. i
Mr. BROWNE. of Miami, resented the ohargeM
from tbe Democracy, that Republicans were in
sympathy with the John Brown raid, or any
Who would resort to revolutionary vr iruaouua
ble acts against tbs country; while tbeii party
warn in .vmoathV ana D.nv leuowsaip witu
the traitors of the South, who are the source of
to much trouble to tbe oountry.
Mr. BURR thought It was a simple matter ot
right to accept this petition, as it was perfectly
respectful in its language ana meaner.
Mr. STEDMAM read the memorial and de
fended its author from any attempt to insult any
party or the Legislature.
Mr. VINCENT said, without the discosaion
wbloh bad beeu had, be would bave the memo
rial reoeived : but since tbe matter bad taken
the turn it had; be should record hie vote against
it most gladly. He could but regard it as in
tended a burlesque upon tbe resolutions adopt
ed, on Saturday last, and otbor efforts to raise
military force in the State.
Mr. VORIS reassured the House that ben.
Bierce was serious, and did not intend a bur
lesque. He thought the vote on receiving this
memorial, involved the right of petition more
directly than the quality or object of tbe memo
rial Itself, lie was ior tne reception, ior me
sake of the right of petition. .
M. FLAGG regarded the proposition of the
memorial as an intuit to the people of the South
who are remotely supposed to become tbe ene
my against wbom the convicts might be em
nloved. It would be an insult to any foreign
nower with whom we might be at war. He de-
deprecated the effeot of entertaining such a
subject, here at this time, npon the pacifications
of tbe South.
Mr. MYERS obiected to the proposition of
this memorial as unjustifiable and worthy of
what discountenance we can give it.
Mr. HILLS thought there was merit in the
suggestion of Mr. Flagg as to the effect on the
South, now so excitable; yet ne wouia receive
'.be petili on, and report decidedly against it.
Mr. JOiNrJS. ot Hamilton, regarded tne
right of petition as eminently seored. But
the effect of receiving tbe petition was to be
avoided now; and he must vote against it.'
Mr. THOMPSON of summit defended lieno
rs! Bierce from any intention to insult the
House or to do anything wrong in the premises.
Mr. PLANTS said this memorial only pro
posed to raise such a regiment in case revolt
and treason made it necetsary. i or nis part ne
would not regard men ot tbe south who are ar
rayed against tbe governmeut, as his brethren.
In the South there are good men, whom he was
prond to call themselves as brothers. They are
for tho country. But those who were in treason
against it are not his brothers, and not entitled
to his sympathies. And be would say here,
that be believed that those traitors would not be
so bold now, If they did not believe that they
had sympathies here. He did cot propose to
adopt the suggestions of (the memorial, but it
should be respectiuiiy beard tor the ngnt oi
Mr. DEVORE opposed tbe memoriel as offer
ing to employ a force that is not needed, and
which all good citizens mus,t deprecate. - it was
not known that we snail neea troops, it is too
soon to talk of it; and when it does beoome
necessary, we can bave a volunteer foroe to do
all that is necessary.
Mr. SCOTT, of Warren, said be did not ap
prove tbe object of tbe petition, but be regarded
the right ot petition too sacred to be violated by
tbe rejection ot a memorial couched in respect-
mi language, and onered in good uitb.
Tbe Speaker, (Mr. PARROTT in the chair)
regretted that this petition had come before the
House, but since it had been presented, be
could uot vote lot its rejection; though be would
in no CA9e vote lor the object or the memorial
It was in bis view an Improper object, and should
not be favored; but tbe right of every citizen to
respectfully petition tbisHcuse, be must always
sustain by his vote.
Mr. iJRUrr, having moved tbe previous
question,' tbe vote was taken upon sustaining it,
whioh resulted yeas.a, nays 4U.
The vote then being on receiving the memo
rials, tbe jaes and nays were demanded, and
resulted yeas 53, nays 42.
Mr. KOBINSUN said be voted ror tbe recep.
tion of the memorial, but disapproved of its ob
jeot. He therefore moved that it lie on the
table. The yeas and nays were demanded and
resulted yeas 52, nays 43. '
Mr. NIGH presented the proceedings of a
meeting of the working men of Lawrence coun
ty.ln relation to the condition of the Union,
wbloh were read at the clerk's desk, and refer
red to the committee on Federal relations.
Mr. FLAGG moved that tbe rules be bus
pended, that he might move that the House
adjourn till noon on Monday next, at 3, P. M.
on which the yeas and nayB were demanded and
resulted yeas 39, nays 41.
Mr. FLAGG Insisted afterwards that thiB mo
tion was not necessary and took an appeal
from tbe chair which was not sustained.
The same motion was put again and lost.
Mr. FLAGG then moved that the House ad
journwhich wonld be till to morrow which
motion was rejected yeas 18, nays 71.
Mr. PARROTT took the oath of office as
Speaker pro tempore, which was administered by
Mr. Converse, who Is a notary publio for

No Fiction, but Truth
We are aware that It is customary to speak of
many of the remedies of the day In a light and
frivolus manner. This may answer where tbe
case to be cured is of a trifling character, and
the remedy preseu d simple, although perhaps
adequate to the case required. But when we
are called npon to prescribe for disease, endur
ed only by excruciating pain, and whoee termi
nation is often fatal, we leave jesting aside, and
proceed with earn eat noes to utter faots that will
perhaps resoue a fellow-being from a bed of
sickness or the grave. It is thus that we would
introduce to our readers Kennedy' i Medical i
cetwry, and state that for the cure of humors
there is nothing in the world can equal this pop
ular and extensively used medicine. ,
