For What Purpose?
The editortof the Ohio Stat Journal hae
txhnmed the AboHHoa epeech of Joh Qomei
Antm. delivered In Congress, April 14th and
J5th, 1842, and eupplted their readere in jee
terday Issue with coploue sxtracta therefrom,
rhi. .neech made reference to the Incendiary
vmoIuiIodb Introduced Into Congress by Mr
-i...n and fnr which he wee ceninred. In it
Mr. Adams goee erea further than Giddinos had
gone, and not only denlei that there It any on
ligation on the part of the United State to eup
press a eervile Insurrection, If one should occur
among the glares In the South, but that inch
id event beinsT war, the States wbere Slavery
exists would cease to have the exclusive man
arement of the subject, and "not only the Preti-
f of tht Vnittd Statee, but the commander of
tht army in that case kae the power to order the
unitereal emancipation of tht tlave.
For what purpose doe the Ohio State Journal
now rummage the debates in Congress In 1842,
and reproduce these incendiary remarks? What
motive can It have? The President of the Unl
ted States has assured the people in all parts
of the country, in his Proclamation of April 15,
cailloc for seventy fire thousand men to put
down rebellion, and retake and possess the pub
lio property, that in the contest the right of
TtaPiinna and nronertv shall be protected. In
r i .
that Proclamation the President uses the follow
"I (Item It proper to say that th first service assigned
to th forces hereby nlM forth wHI probably bo tor)
hmm. th f.irta. niicee. and Dronerlv. which hav boon
cited from the Union, and. In every event, the utmost
ore will bo observed, consistently with the objects efort
eald, to avoid any devuUlien, any .destruction of or
interference with private property, or any disturbance
of peaceful citleena in any part of the coon try.
More recently, Mr. Siwaid has spoken very
significantly in relation to slave property in
Florida, one of the States that has sece
ded. On the 7th of May. the State De
partment bad under consideration the com1
plaints of certain slave-owners at Key West,
whoso negroes are now In the employ of
the Government, nnder a contract of some
years' standing ; the masters claiming that the
negroes were hired to labor at a specific place,
and the Government agents claiming that, nnder
the contract, they can be employed any place
In the State of Florida The following extracts
from Secretary Siwaid' " memorandum " will
give the points in controversy, and the views of
the Administration about slave property:
It appear., from the loformatlon thai obtained, that
certain slaveholder at Key West, In the State of Flori
da, a long time ago, hired the publio agents of the Gov
mines t a nnmber of slaves at very remunerative prices,
to be employed ea laborers In the forttncalione of the
United States, for a term of twelve years yet anexptred.
Of these, aoertain nnmber, not. It la believed, exceed
Ine twentv. were emoloved In the fortification at Tortn-
'gms,when Col. Broun arrived then, Rod having need of
their help In reinforcing and tnpplying fort rattens, be
took them to Pensaoola, and employed them there la
landing stores from the Atlantic and the Illinois at fort
it is not complained In the papers before me that the
matters sre not paid or to be paid, for the labor of the
elavea. and. on the contrary, Caps. Meigs distinctly an
dcrstands that the Quarter-Master la to pay the wage to
the mietere of the elaves at Key West, as heretofore.
It is not pretended that the Quarter master has violated,
or Intends to violate, the contract of hire in any way.
It mast be entirely immaterial to the matter whether
the slaves work at the Tortugas, or whether they work
at fort Plckene; both the placet are situated la the Start
. of Florida; they are alias sire nnder the government In
both ciaeri. and thonld the contract be broken by the pub
lie ai-enta. tha Pnti lent will take care to See that due re
drew is afforded. I am sot able to nnderstsnd that than
1 anything wrong or centarable In this matter.
We again ask, why does the Ohio State Jour
nal produce and publish the remarks of John
Qoirct AsaJts, made in Congress more than
nineteen years ago 1 They have so binding
force. - They are merely the opinions and views
ot man who was full of hatred toward the
Sjuth, because of his defeat for re election to
the Presidency in 1823, by the vote of the South
ern States, which carried Jackson triumphant
ly into'the White House, and expelled Adams.
From that time forward Mr. Adams became the
most mad and fanatical Abolitionist, and to the
day of his death used his power and great intel
lect to . create an estrangement between the
North and South on the slavery question.
No patriotic, law-abiding or Union-loving
impulees Induce the Journal to publish such
Incendiary matter at this time. Its chief de-
lire is for a servile insurrection in the South,
aod it would rejoice with fiendish joy, if it could
see the white population of that seotiot exter
minated by the negroes. The editors of the
Journal are the fit representatives of John
Brown, except that they lack his courage.
They are as malignant and fiendish as Baown
himself, but they are coward, and will never
be found exposing their persons, either in
honorable and patriotic defence of their coon
try, or leading a gang of desperadoes to incite
The law-abiding and Union-loving people
. Ohio should require the Journal to cease
, incendiary course. That paper is without In flu-
, ;uce for good-, but yet may do, and does do,
much barm; and it should be required to keep
Its fiendish and disunion sentiments from tue
public view, or be abated as a nuisance by the
withdrawal of the countenance and patronage
of every loyal citizen now contributing to
' All such abolition articles as the Journal is
the habit of publishing can have but one effect,
and that is to consolidate the entire South
in thie rebellion, and hence it must be viewed
an enemy to the prompt and speedy settlement
of our present national trouble; and those who
have gone into the field to serve in tha war
should regard it, and all other journals like
as their worst enemy.
HTWe learn from the Ohio Stale Journal
yeeterday that the appointment of Joshua E.
Giddinos as Consul General in Canada has
been received there with universal satisfaction.
If this be so, a great many people are pleased
on both sides of the line, for his absence from
Ohio is a very gratifying circumstance to all the
loyal Union-loving men in the State). ' 1
E3 Tht Taunton (Mass.) Oatdte, referring
to the attentkaa which Gov. Sprague receives
from the ladies at' Washington, remarks '
'follows: ' :" ',' . !

patriotism, has already one 'engagement on his

A Danger to Which Our Country is Exposed.
War is at all times a terrible evil. ' But It Is
useless now to dilate upon tha magnitude of its
horrors. , A civil war. for a shorter or longer
period, seems Inevitable. It Is, therefore, the
put of wisdom to prepare for the dangers that
must arise from such a state of things to the
These dangers are great and manifold. One
of tha most serious is the tendency In the time
of war, and particularly of olvil war, towards
the zeroise of arbitrary and unconstitutional
powers. The plea for the exercise of such pow
er generally Is the necessity of the case that
It is necessary in order to maintain and preserve
the authority of the government.
But this is the plea which oppression always
makes for its inroads upon the rights and liber
ties of tha people. When a people can patient
ly submit to wrong and outrage upon civil
rights and personal liberty, and justify snob
arbitrary proceedings upon the ground of ne
cessity, they are gradually being prepared for
the iron rule of military despotism
Our boasted free Institutions are now under
going a new and terrible ordeal. We have
passed, since the formation of our Federal
Union, through two foreign wars, though not
wholly unscathed,, yet without serious detri
ment. But now we are involved In a domestic
war, in which about one-third of our people
may be said to be arrayed against the other two
thirds an Intestine war, which, it is to be
feared, will be prolonged and bloody. 'r
In the midst of our excitement, aod "appro
(tensions, we should pause and take warning
from the lights of experience. We have, as
people, do experience of a similar trial of our
own to take lessons from. .But other nations
and governments have had such trials of their
wisdom snd virtue. Their united testimony is
that prolonged and constant civil wars almoat
Invariably tend to the establishment of arbitary
governments or military dictatorships.
This is the rock before us upon which our
ship of state msy be foundered. The wise
mariner will look out cautiously for the first
appearance of danger, when be knows that it
lies almost directly in the ship's path, and give
warning in dull season. He who refuses to heed
the warning Is as reckless of the lives and for
tunes of the crew as though he were bent upon
betraying them into the hands of pirates
ETA writer in yesterday' Journal, over the
signature of "Star and Stripee,' says we have
men in our midst, "the business of whose
lives has been to advocate the supremacy of al
leglaoee to a State over allegiance to the United
States, a pestilent heresy, which eradicates all
true patriotism from the mind, and prepares it
to nourish treasonable sentiments as naturally
as mullens and thistles spring up and flourish in
a vitiated soil." That is all true, as evidenced
by tha conduct of the followers of Chabc.Din.
SON, BslNKIIHOFF, WoLCOTT, GlDDlNOS,
Plumb, Pick, snd others, in their resistance to
the execution of the fugitive slavs law. But
the recent uprising in favor of the Union, so
powerful and overwhelming, makes it neces
sary for all such men to keep shady. Many
of them even profess now to be loyal citi
zens! 07 The Republicans in the Richland District
have nominated S. T. Woscistu, of Huron
county, at present Judge on the Common Pleas
Bench, as the candidate of that party for Con
gress, to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of John Sanaa am.

The Gun—boat Discussion.
Every' reader of the Cincinnati Commercial
and the Oautta has . been amused at the silly
discussions of these two papers on the subject of
Gun Baals. The Cincinnati Prete, of Wednes
day, thus treats the silly editors of tha Gazette
and Commerei alt '
Having confined our praotloe in gunnery
principally to weapons of a less destructive
character , than guns, revolvers, Derringers,
howitzers, Liatlgrens, fowling-pieces and Co-
lumbiads, wa ubould do wrone to profess to
speak experimentally upon a matter so abstruse
at once ana so important as tbe Uun-boat ques
tion) but as we have read prayerfully, and we
trust not witnout aa vantage, toe articles or the
Vommeraal, we may venture to lay down a few
elementary points wbioh will be beueficial to
tbe lese instructed readers of the Prrtt, in case
tbey should ece fit to pursue the sub eot in tbe
more proiouna polemic or our cotempor&ries.
We will begin with the definition of a Gun-boat,
What la a Gun-boat 7 r
A gun Is a gun, and a boat is a boat: combine
tbe two, and tbe product. In fact as In terminol
ort. is gun-boat. Any boat, with any gun in it,
is, pre Mara, a gun-boat; while a bug vessel of
multitudinous tonnage, witn Duiwarks rendered
invulnerable by massive plates of iron, and oar
rying aeveral ugly-looking and worse-behaving
piece ol tubular pot metal, is still a gun-boat,
ana no more man a gun-noat.
A profound thinker of Mew England was
wout to sum up the result of his philosophical
researches in the following brief sentence:
There's odds in deacons " Tbe GazttU, with
equal protoundity, haa reached tht conclusion
that there is, or may bo, odds in gun-boats.
1 bis fact,or principle, tbe Commercial disregard
With a sublime uoconsciousnes, of minor dis
tinctions so common with lofty Intellects, the
Commercial reasons we give it in a paraphrase
a gun is a gun. and a boat Is a boat: therelore
a gun-boat is a cun-boat, A auu boat can do
thus and thus: for example: Let A. B. be the ob
jector attack a battery of sand-bags or a lort
of log of palmetto; and o. U. tbe gun boat
whose business it 1 to destroy It. A. B. can go
to B. C , aryal B. C. must go to A. B. Every
thing 1 in readiness; tbe universe bold its
aerial and other fluids In an agony of expecta
tion; bang goes B. C. and duwn comes A. B
Nay, but, says the Gazette, lugging out its
discovery, and remembering ita scripture at tne
same time : as one star dillerfllh from anotner
star in glory, so one gun-boat differeth from an
other gun-boat in what shall we call it to turn
tne sentence properly 7 sop-ularuv.
Besides, ear tbe Gated! -now fairly under
way witn ita logio there' a difference in forts
a well as in gun boats.
To the Dovil with your differences, ears the
Commercial, growing alarmed at these fioe-ppun
distinctions, and trying to get into deeper water.
And tbe Government, safe tbe Commercial" still
harping on its old strategic paint bad but two
or three gun-boats at fort Sumter
How big 7 puts la the GattHe.
D the odds, says the Commercial
Beside reading up for this article la the Com
mercial, we have been glancing at the Ency
clopedia lor materials, We iouked for guu in
G., and for boat la B., and combined tho iulor
nation. Treatinor ita auhiAnt miflcllAhpnaalv
and, as it were, hysterically, tbe Cummer cud
does not supply those strictly coientihc formula
necessary to a full elucidation of all it practi
cal aspeota. Its fundamental proposition a
gun is a gun and a boat is a boat, therefore a
gun boat Is a gun boat perbap renders tbi
unnecessary. We bave, however, been seeking
for some rule by which the relative power of
gun boats and batteries may be determined
mathematically; and have lound it. It is as
follow, and we submit it to tbe Commercial,
confident that Its consummate military geniue
will not fail to eee in it all that is desirable.
We subjoin it, confident of its approval, giving
it full permission to use the same in lis future
controversies with the Gazette:
As the square of tbe exposed surface of tbe
boat, added to tbe calibre of its gun, is to the
cube of tbe sand-bags composing the battery,
so is the ratio of the sbots fired by tbe former to
the sum of the killed and wouuded lo tbe tat
Tbe conclusion to which we have arrived is.
that although there may be things in which size
ana weignt ot metal make no ditlerence, gun
boats are not one of them.

all traitors, their alders aud abettors, that their
rebellious acts must cease, 1 nereoy, Dy tae

Department of Annapolis, of which the city of
Baltimore forms a part, ao now oommaau auu

are hereby requested to report to me forthwith,
so that the lawfulness of their occupations may

No transportation from the City to the rebels
of articles fitted to aid and support troopsinthe
field will be nermittcd. and the fact of such
transportation, after the publication of this
proclamation, will be taken and received ss
proof of illeiral intention on the part of the
consignees, aud will render the goods liable to
seizure and confiscation, the government being
ready to receive all euch tore and uppnes.

facturers of such articles of equipment and

are desired to nut themselves in communica

that their workshops may be employed for loyal
purposes, and the artisans of the city resume
and carr on their wonted profitable occupa

Commisiiary of subsistence of the United States
bere stationed has been instructed to procure
and furniah at fair nricei fortv thousand ra

of Maryland, and aoting under tbe orders of tbe
Governor thereof, for drill and other purposes,
are 1 Jtbidden within the department.
All officers of the militia of Maryland, hav
ing Command within the limits of tbe depart
ment, are reauested to report through tbeir offi
cers forthwith to the General in command, so
that be may be able to know and distinguish
the regular commissioned and loyal troops of
Maryland from armed bodies wbo may Claim to
be suoh. Tbe ordinary operations of the corpo
rate government of tbe city of Baltimore, and
the civil authorities, will not be interfered with;
but, on the contrary, will be aided by all the
power at tbe command of the Uenerai, upon
proper call being made; and all such authorities
are cordially invited to co operate with the
General in command to carry out tbe purposes
set forth in the proclamation, so that the city of
Baltimore may be shown to the country to be
what she is in fact, patriotic and loyal to tbe
Union, to the Constitution and the laws.
Noflig, banner, eosiga or device of the so
called Confederate States, or any of them, by
evil disposed persons, will be deemed and taken
to be evidence of design to afford aid and com
fort to the enemies ot the country. To make
it tbe more anoalent that the Government of
the United States by far more relies upon the
loyalty, patriotism and zeal of the good citizens
ol Baltimore and vicinitv tban upon any exnioi-
tioo of force calculated to intimidate them into
that obedience to the laws which tbe Govern
ment doubts not will be paid from inherent re
spect and love of order, tbe Commanding Gen
eral has brought to the city witn Dim, oi tne
many thousand troops in tbe immediate neigh
borhood which might be at once concentrated
here, scarcely more than an ordinary guard; and,
until it fails him, be will oontlnue to rely up
on that loyalty and patriotism of the citizens of
Maryland which has never yet been found want
ing to tbe Government in time of need. The
General in command desires to greet and treat
in this part of bis department all the citizens
thereof as friends and brothers, having a com
mon purpose, a common loyalty and a common
country. Any infractions of the laws by the
troops under his command, or any disorderly or
unsoldierlike conduct, or any Interference with
private property, be desires to bave immediate
ly reported to him; and be pledges himself tbat
if any soldier so far forgets himself as to break
those laws he has sworn to defend and enforce,
be shall be most rigorously punished. The
General believes that if the suggestions and re
quests contained in this proclamation are faith
fully cairied out by the co operation of all good
and Union-loving citizens, and peace and quiet,

Shocking Instance of Indian Superstition.
Th British Coloniet, published in British Co
lumbia, relates tbat a Dydah Indian boy, wbo
bad been employed as a scullion for several
month at a hotel, was recently missed, bat af
ter some time was discovered In close confine
ment in a ledee of tbe Stickeen Indians. He
was boond hand and foot, and was reduced to
mere skeleton from want of food and water
The boy's version of tbe affair is that he was
clandestinely seized by several Stickeen Indi
ans and taken to the lodge where be was discov
ercd by tbe police, where he was shown a sick
Dydah, and told tbat until that man recovered
he would be kept in close confinement without
food; if tbe man died, be would be killed;
he lived, be would be set at liberty. Tbe
captive was then bound with ronos and
gagged, so as to prevent bim from calling for
asKiatance, and placed in a corner of the
room, where be remained without food
water for nine days! Daring tbis time the
Indians occasionally tantalized him by removing
tbe sac, placing rood to bis lips, and tben jerk
ing it away, and by offering him salt water
driDk.. If he sought to sleep, be was tortured
till he awoke. The excuse given for this bar
barous treatment was that the boy bad bewitch
ed one of their tribe by burying a quantity
herbs near bis house, tbat tbe Indian was taken
sick, and the only means through which he could
ultimately recover was by treating tbe boy
they had done; they also add that be some time
ago bewitched a child that afterward died, and
that the whole tribe stood In dread of the spells
he was enabled to throw around them by bis In
cantations It was their intention to have burn
ed bim on the tenth day, and use his aabes
tbe preparation of a cordial that should heal the
sick man, and tbe pyre was nearly reaay lor nis
reception when tbe polios fortunately discovered
bis locality. . '

LETTER FROM GEN HARNEY.
To the People the State of Missouri.
MILITARY DEPARTMENT OF THE WEST.
ST. LOUIS, May 14, 1861.
Ou my return to the duties of the command
of this department, I find, greatly to my aston
ishment and mortinoaUon.amostextraoratnary
state of things existing In this State, deeply
affecting tbe stability of tbe Government of the
United States, as well as the government and
otber Interests of Missouri itself.
As a citizen of Missouri, owing allegianoe lo
the Uuited states, ana having interests in com
mon with you, I ieel it my duty as well asprivl
lege, to extend a warning voice to my fellow-
citizens againBt tha common dangers that
threatens us, and to appeal to your patriotism
and sense of justice to exert ail your moral
nower to avert them.
It Is with regret that I feel it my duty to call
your attention to tbe receut act of the General
Assembly ot Missouri, Known as toe muuary
bill, which is tbe result, no ooudc, oi tne tern
porary exoitemeut tbat now pervades the publio
mind. I bis bin cannot do regaraea in any oia
er llcht than an Indirect seeeistoa ordinance, ig
noring even the form resorted to by other
States. Manifestly, its most material provisions
are in conllict with tha Constitution and laws of
tbe United States. To this extent it is a nullity,
andoannotand ought not to be upheld or re
garded by the good citizens of Missouri, There
are ODiiuauons ana uuties resume uuuu iuo ucu-
pie of Missouri under the Constitution and laws
of the Uuited States which are paramount, and
which I trust you will carefully consider and
weigh well before you will allow yourselves to
be carried out of the Union, under the form of
yielding obedience to tbis military bill, which
Is clearly iu violation of your duties as citizens
of the United States.
It must be apparent to every one wbo has
t tiU en a nrorer aud unbiased view of the sub
ject, that whatever may he the termination of
tbe uoiortunate condition oi tnings id respect to
tbe so called "Cotton States," Missouri must
share the destiny of tbe Union. Her geographi
cal nosition. her soil, productions, and in short,
all her material interests point to this result.
We cannot shut our eyes against this controll
ing fact. It is seen and its force is felt through,
out the nation. So important is tbis regarded
as to tbe great interests of tbe country, tbat I
venture to express the' opiuion that tbe whole
power of the Government of the United States,
if necessary, will be exerted to maintain Mis
souri in her present position in the Union.
I express to you, in ail frankness and sincer
ity, mv own deliberate convictions, without
aasumintr to sneak for tbe Government of
the Uuited States, whose authority here and
elsewhere I shall at all times and under
all circumstances endeavor faithfully to up
hold I desire, above all things, most earnestly to
invite my fellow citizens dispassionately to con
sider their true interests as well as their true
relation to the Government under which we
live and to which we owe so much.
Iu this connection I desire to direct attention
to one subject, which no doubt will be made the
pretext for more or less popular excitement. I
allude to the recent transactions at Cams Jack
eon, near St, Lnuis. It is not proper for me to
comment upon the ofBoial conduct of my prede
cessor in command of this Department, but it is
right and proper for the poople of Missouri to
know that tbe main avenue of Camp Jackson,
recently under tbe oomraand of Gen. Frost, had
tbe name of Davie, and a principal street of the
game camp that of Beauregard; and that a body
of men had been received into that camp by Ita
commander, which bad been notoriously organ
ized In tbe interests of the teceieiomete tbe
men openly wearing tbe dress and badge distin
guishiog tbe army of the so-called Southern
Confederacy. It is also a notorious fact that a
quantity of arms had been received into camp
which were unlawfully taken from the United
States arsenal at Baton Rouge, and surrepti
tiously passed up tbe river in boxes marked
Upon facts, like these, and having in view
what occurred at Liberty, the people can draw
tbeir own ioferences, and it cannot be difficult
for any one to arrive at a correct conclusion as
to tbe character aud ultimate purpose bf that
encampment. No Government in the world
would be entitled to respect tbat would tolerate
for a moment such openly treasonable prepara
tions. It is but simple justice, however, tbat I should
state tbe fact tbat there were many good and
loyal inou in the camp, who were In no manner
responsible for its treasonable character.
Disclaiming, as I do, all desire or intention to
interfere in any way with the prerogatives of
the State of Missouri, or with tbe functions ol
its Executive or other authorities, yet I regard
it bb my plain path of duty to express to tbe
people, in re?peotful but at the same time decid
ed language, that within tne neia ana scope oi
my command and authority, tbe surKbraiv
LAW of tbe land must and shall be maintain
ed, and no subterfuges, whether In the form of
legislative acts or otherwise, can be permitted
to harass or oppress the good and law-abiding
people of Missouri. 1 shall exert my authority
to protect their persons and property from viola
tions of every kind, and 1 shall deem it my
duty to suppress all unlawful combinations of
men, wbetber lormed under pretext of military
