y Th ' Ziveiyool cvrrespmdent of tie
'Boston Daily Advertiser gives tlie follow
ing account of a new necrojnancer who lias
been astonishing the French, and is Coming
to Astonish tLa Londoners: - ' .- A
. '"The London swells, ever like the peo
ple of Athens, craving for some new ex
citement; are esgcrty anticipating the visit
of Signor Rigawni, a magnetizer of such
txtraonlinw? powers, that the Italians call
him the "Mtm DeviL" or the "Detilman,"
I forget exactly which, nor does it matter
muctu "The Signor, from an extreme dis
tance, or from another apartment, can, it
v k said, strike senseless any one whom he
selects as his patient or perhaps I should
say, his victim. - He is the first whose
power has been strong enough to stop the
pulsation of the heart. At St. Cloud, in
the presence of the Emperor and a large
eircle of visiters, he performed, the other
day, some, of his supnsinff experiments;
He ' placed himself at the end of a long
gallery ill the palace, and tipoh receiving a
memorandum ' in writing irkhcalinr the
persorl chosen from among the company
to be ah example of his power, ou tstretched
his hand towards the victim, who instantly
fell as if struck by lightning, stiff and sen
Seless to the floor, and thus remained to
willed. Another gesture on the part of
the magnetiser, and the patient rose, star
ing with ineffable amazement around, and
wondering what the whole tiling fa- about,
staggers to his seats The most curious
experiment at St. Cloud was made upon a
tounp; Italian sitifrrir (female) just arrived
from Florence, who was introduced under
the anspices of the Princess Mathude, and
who sang, with great celat, the andante of
accars bravtirs "Le Korneo. In the
allegro, which follows, the singer was in
the act of executing some particularly bril
liant passage, when tine Emperor, who was
seated at the further end of tlie room, made
a sign to Bagazzoni::; The latter stretched
forth his hand towards the lady, when sud
denly, as if some infernal power had seized
her within its grasp, she stopped, wit h star
ing eyes and mouth tnde open. lhe un
finished note died away, and after two or
three gulphmg efforts, she gazed round in
terror, and then fell forward on the piano
and burst into tears Her voice was par
lyzed, and in answer to the kind solici
tations of those around her not in the se
cret, and who thought she was ill she cotild
.tonly point to her throat with a piteous ex
pression of countenance, nnl shake her

CoL Fremont is not now, nor has he ev
er been, & Roman Catholic His father
dying when he was five years old,, he was
educated exclusively in Protestant schools,
and at the age of sixteen, was confirmed, of
his own motion and sincere conviction, lu
the Protestant Fpiseopal Church, of which
he has continued ever since to be a member,
Not one of his own children has ever been
sent to a Roman Cathohe school, thoiifrh I
believe an adopted daughter attended for a
short time the Seminary at Georgetown,- of
which the pupils are generally largely
Protestant. 1 his ought not to be construed
to his prejudice, even by the most zealons
Protestants, is sufficiently showir by the
tact that Mr. J? ulniore sent his own daugh
ter to a Catholic Seminary at Buffalo for
the purpose of special instruction yet no
oiie ever inferred from this circumstance
that he himself was not a Protestant.'
CoL Fremoht's marriage was celebrated
by a Koman Catholic priest; but this was
in consequence of the difficulty, if not im
possibility, of procuring any other clergyman
to perform it The cefehibrJy was in a pri
vate room, was tery short and simple? and
did not imply any assent on his part, or that
of his wife, to tlie doctrine of this Roman
Catholic Church ; nor was either of thetrl
required, or requested, on that occasion, to
give any pledge that their Children should
be bronght up iii that faith; They hate
all been baptised and educated1 m the Pro1
testant Episcopal Church;
The statements which Alderriian Follnef,
of this city, , is said to have authorized 'to
tlie effect that in March, 1852, he saw CoL
Frenwnt joining in the religious services of
a Aoinan auionc nurcu at asmngion,

The True Issue.
: The Democrats of the South fn tie pres
ent canvass cannot rely on the old grounds
of defence and excuse for slavery; for they
teet not merily to retain, it tehere it is, hit
to extend it into regions 'where it is vn
lnown. Much hss can they rely on the
mere coiistitutiohai 'guarantees of slavery",
for such reliance is pregnant with he ad
mission that slavery is wrong, and but for
the constitution should be abolished; ' The
constntional argument" Tor slavery, stand
ing alone fully justifies the abolitionists.
They are clearly right if slavery is moral
ly wrong, for "to get " rid of it tinder the
constitution, or by amehding the constrtti
tion, . is confessedly . impracticable.
In truth the Constitution cannot help
slavery, if it be a violation of the laws of
God and morality; In that case the con
stitution should be changed, or the free
States should secede, rather than continue
to guaranty what they consider immoral
and profane; ... The constitution cannot
help slavery for another reason: That ih-stitntior,-
extending through fifteen States,
and interrnmified with the interests, the
feelings and the very existence of many
millions of inen is much stronger than the
constitution. It would be far easier to
change Or -violate the constitution, than to
abolish slavery. Besides slavery is older
than the constitution, existed before it, aud
independently of it. We derive no right
to our slaves . from it ' and weaken -.our
cause by seeming to rely on it
: Nor will - it avail us aught to bIiow
that the negro is most happy and best
suited in the condition of slavery; If we
stop there, we weaken our cause by the
very argument hit ended to adtance it; for
we propose to introduce into new territory
human beings whom we assert to he unfit
for liberty, self-government, and equal as
sociation witlt other men.. We must go
step furllter. - We must show that Afri
can slavery is a moral, religious, natural,
and probably, in general, a necessary in
stitution of slavery.' This is the only line
of arawnent that will enable southern
Democrats to maintain the doctrines of
State equality and Slavery extention. -
For if slavery be not alegitimate, useful,
moral, and expedient institution, we cannot
without reproof of conscience and the
blush of shame, seek to extend itor assert
our equality with those Elates 'having no
such institution. ' - :'
- Northern Dh'mdcrols rieed hot go thus
far; Thiy-do not seek to extend Slavery,
but only agree to its extension, as matter of
right on mirparL : They may prefer their
own social system to - ours. It is best
that tliey should. Our friends are con
servatives at home, and conservatives of
the Union conservatives of religion, of
marriage, of property, of State institutions,
and federal intitutiou. But whilst they
may prefer their - own social system, they
will have to admit in this canvass that ours
is also tigldfid and legitimate, and sanc
tioned alike by the opinions and usages of
mankind, and by the authority and express
injunctions of .Scripture. They cannot
consistently maintain : that slavery is im
moral, inexpedient and profane, and yet
continue to submit to its extension; '
We know that we ntter bold truths.
But the. time has now arrived when their
utterance can be rid longer postponed.
The true issue should stand out so boldly
and clearly that none may mistake it. .
Pennsylvania for Fremont.
The Washington Organ, tho "authora-
tive exponent" of principles of the Fill
more party, m its issue' of Monday last,
contains an article, reviewing Mr. rill-
more's prospects, in which it comes to the
following sensible conclusion in regard to
result in Pennsyvania and Massachusetts :
"In Massachusetts and 1'ennsyvauia
things at present look dark and gloomy.
It seems now more thftn probable that Fre
mont . will carry Pennsylvania, unless the
Buchanan men will unite upon f ulniore, sc
it is supposed that State pride will prevent
them from doing this," even hi tie w "of the
now obvious truth, that there is no other
mode of saving Pennsylvania from Fremont
It will be for the Democracy of Pennsyl
vania to decide betweeh Fillmore "and Fre
mont A few days will enable us to make
more definite calculations as to Massacba-
setts. Three or four days ago we believed
Fillmore Would carry Massachusetts; bnt
the course of fcioveruor tiardner and his
friends renders the condition of political
affairs there more uncertain than they were,
and we can only hope for the best in that
Tho Organ says that the mformation oft
which its conclusions are based is from "re
liable sources," and wo have no doubt of it,
The gaiue'the Democrats here are trying to
play to save the State from Fremont is to
effect a union with the Fillmore men, while
the only hope of the latter party at Wash
ington to obtain a similar result is to effect
a union with the Democrats. This unwil
ling admission from the Orgaii goes to
cbnfirm onr previously oppressed opinion,
that the friends of Buchariaii and Fillmore
intend to play a bold game Mich will open
the eyes of those who now think "Fillmore
is as safe for Free Kansas as Fremont"

Which is the Sectional Party?
. Upon thisquestion the N. Y. Herald says i
Upon Kansas, our modern niggerized
democracy, from Mr. Buchanan at Wheats
land, and Mr. Toombs in the United States
Senate, down to all the little organs and
stump orators of the party throughout the
country, are proclaiming that "Fremont is
a sectional candidate," and that "his elec
tion will and ought to be the end of the
Union;" How sectional ? Is his position in
favor of Ksnsas as a free State in any de
gree more sectional than the position of Mr.
Buchanan in behalf of the admission of
Kansas as a slave State f . But we are told
that in lis election fifteen States of the
Union will be ignored. How so ? The ans
wer, is, 'Look at tho South not even a
Fremont electoral ticket in any Southern
State, excepting Kentucky." But we ask
again, Why not ? And we are answered."
Because the Fremont abolition parly dare
not attempt it they would . be lynched,
tarred and feathered, or hung up on the
first tree, or drummed out of the State;
and. they know it"
Admitting all this to be irhe, we cannot
see that it proves Fremont to be more a
sectional candidate than Buchanan. On the
other hand, We think it shows the boot to
be upon the other leg; aud that tlie present
Buchanan party of the South is seriously
the most ultra and deplorably sectional party
that lias ever existed among us Mr. Cobn
of Georgia, and Mr. Senator Benjamin of

we believe,- and both in favor of the election
of Buchanan and the admission of Kansas
as a slave. State, and both in favor of seces

mont's election have just been enlighten
enihg the people of Maine on democratic
principles, and on the sectionalism of Fre
mont and his masses of northern supporters.
Mr. Cobb and Mr. Benjamin are free to go
and speak in this way, in every hole and
corner of the North- free to yilii y Fremont,
his party, his platform,- his supporters,. and
free to preach secession as the democratic
alternative should the will of the people
be against Buchanan ; but how is it down
in Georgia or Louisiana! Very likely if
a Northern man in Savannah were to mount
the stump for Fremont he would be stop
ped by the fighting "democracy" of the
place, as Mr. Brooks stopped the mouth of
Mr; oumner in ine cscnaie cnamoer; ana
very likely,, if Mr, Cobb were present he
would not interpose to save the audacious
intruder from the vengeance of his fellow
citizens. - And as with Mr. Cobb, so with
Mr. Benjamin. Is not this, then, the real
sectional party tin's ultra-despotic, and
sectional democracy of the South, which,
upon Kaiisas affairs throughout the South,
seals the month and the press of the oppos
ition at the peril of Lynch law ? .
Salem Horse Exhibition.

that the third Exhibition of tlie Ohio and
Pennsylvania Horse Association will be
held at Boston on the 8th, 4th 5th and 6th

upon tho part of the managers. The ex

C ASABA iNtfBPESDEtfCE. A Toronto
correspondent speculating on parties m
Uanada, savs: .
"Amidst the Rriot of little" guerilla sec
tions that now forrii onr body political, s
keen observer may perceive the germs of
two parties, which will number- between
them the whole population; and whose ral-
lynig points respectively -will be" the inde
pendence and non-independence of Canada.
I say this in no spirit of hostility to Great
Britain. ' It is but the natural end of things
nothing else. To nearly all practical in
tents and purposes we nre now an inde
pendent nation; AH we want is an " army
of our own ; and through the medittfn of
the militia bill we shall soon have that-
Then the first angry word-he first con
tempuous expression from home-will act
like a spark; Men having arms in their
hands are not generally very forbearing un
der provocations, and once provoked, the
contest I speak. of will begin. This may
not occur for a dozen years perhaps much
longer ; but I dare say there is hardly a
man in Canada who does not believe be
lieve passively, and urn-hap withont much
desire ono way or another 4 hat tlie inde
pendence of Canada is but a mere oftestion
of time.- Amongst those who now give
tiwmisoives any thought about tho matter,
1 think the prevailing impression is that
when the time for such a step does como, it
will be taken with tho perfect acquiescence
ot England. As to what may come after
that, may form the subject matter of fu
Mors Evidence. The following is the
language of Mr. McWillie, of Mississippi :
