OUT IN THE COLD.
BY JOHN S. ADAMS.
With Mue cold liands and stoclciliglcss fee'.,
Wandered a child in tlio clieeilcds street,
Children wcro many, who, housed and fed,
Lovingly nestled, dreaming In bed,
Caroled their Joy In a land of bliss
Without a thought otU caro of this.
They wero warm In Humanity's fold
But this littlo" child was out In tho cold
Bleak blew 'tho tvlnd through tho cheerless
Dashing along the merciless sleet
All furred and shawled, man, woman and child,
Hurried along, for the storm grew wild,
They could not bear the Icicle blast
Winter so rude on their pathway cast.
Alas, none pitied no one consoled
This little wanderer, out In tho cold
Out in tho cold,
Sho had no father she, no mothorj
Sister none, nnd never a brother.
They had passed on to star-world's above,
She remained here with nothing but love.
"Nothingbntjlpve" ah! men did not know
What wcaltfftf joy that child could bestow.
So they went by and worshipped their gold,
Leaving, the little one'out In tho cold .
Outin the cold.
Wandered she on till the shaijesof night
Veiled horshiveiing form from jsighO
Then with her cold hands over her.brpast
She pr.ivoil to her Fatherin Heavcu.for rest.
When hours had fled, 'ncatli tho world's dark
Hungered and chilled sho laid herself down
Lay down to rest, while the wealth rolled
In carriages passed her out in tho cold
Out in the cold.
Out In tho cold lo! an ancel form
Brought her n hltc robes that were rich and warm.
uut in the colli, on the sleeping child,
The sainted face of a mother smiled.
A sister pressed on her brow a kiss,
Led her 'mid scenes of heavenly bliss:
And angels gathered into their fold
That night, the little ono out of tho cold
Out of tho cold.

The Dangers of the Republic.
It is asserted nnd probably believed by
soiiio Hopublicnns, that the threatened t.e
eession of porno of thu Southern States,
is only a teporary excitement mid passion,
or a little brat; and bluster of politicians.
that will pass away in a short time. That
there is no foundation for this assertion is
evidenced by tho fact that in somo of the
Southern States the determination to t,e-
cede is almost unanimous among the pco
plo and that they aio now coolly and de
liberately instituting measures to accom
plish this object. The trouble is upon iss
and already is heard throughout the South.
the calm but dotorrriin'ed prepnrntfon for
deadly strife, the exciting and warliko
scenes of military organization and dis
play, and the marshalling of armies, while
in tho North is heard tho threat, tho taunt,
tho sneer nnd attempted intimidation.
This is tho situation of tho country, and
God alone in His Iufinito wisdom can dis
place the threatening cloud of danger that
hangs liko tho pall of midnight over the
uepublic. A timo Iilto this brings vividly
to mind, those warning and almost proph
etic words of Henry Clay, uttered as long
ago as Ibci'J. llo then said:
"Sir, I am not in tho habit of speaking
lightly of the possibility of dissolving this
happy Union. Tho Semite knows that 1
havo deprecated allusions, on ordinary
occasions, to tlint dircn.il ovent. 'lhe
country will testify that, if thcio bo any
thing in the history of my public career
worthy of recollection, it is tho truth and
sincerity of my ardent devotion to its last
ing picservatton. But wo should bo false
in our allegiance if wo did not discunu-
nato between tho imaginary and real dan-
gors by which it may bo assailed. Abo-
ltiomsm should no longer bo regarded as
an imaginary danger. Tho abolitionists,
let mo suppose, succeed in their present
aims of uniting the inhabitants of tho Irco
btates, as ono man, against tho inhabi
tants of tho slave States. Union on one
side will beget Union on tho other, and
this process of 1ecipric.1l consolidation
will bo attended with all tho violent prcd-
judice, embittered passions, and implaca
ble animosities winch over degraded or
deformed human nature.
Ono section will stand in menacing and
hostilo array against tho other. The col
lision of opinion will be quickly followed
by tho clash of arms. I will not attempt
to describo scenes which now happily lio
hid from view. Abolitionists themselves
would shrink back in dismay and horror
at the contemplation of desolated fields,
conflagrated cities, murdered inhabitants,
and tho overthrow of tho fairost fabric of
human government that over rose to ani
mato the hopes of civilized man."
Wo havo arrived at all but tho last Fceno
of what ho prcdictod would bo tho result of
tho spread of tho sectional feelings to
which ho rofers; all has como but tho ''clash
of arms." Nothing can bo done to nvort
tho dread calamity tho "desolated fields,
conflagrated cities, murdered inhabitants,
and the overthrow of the fairest fabric of
human government tlint over voso to ani
mato tho hopes of civilized man," unless,
at once, some assurance bo given tho coun
try that all parties founded upon mcro
sectional ideas shall bo put down, that tho
constitution shall bo fulfilled in Icttor and
spirit, and tho rights of all sections res
pected. To do this sectional organizations
must bo abandoned by all conservative,
union loving inert nnd thoso must unite
upon somo common ground of settlement,
just, alike to the North and tho South.
DEATH OF DELAZON SMITH.
ofDelazon Smith, at Portland, Oregon,
on the 18th ult., is announcod. Mr. Smith
was formerly a United States Senator from
Oregon. Ho was formerly of this State

younger days published a hook callod
"Oborlin Unmasked," giving a horriblo,
yet apochryphal account of tho doings at
that institution. As o political orator ho

Gen. Jackson's Proclamation.
Tho following is tho concluding por
tion of tho Proclamation of Gen. Jack
son, issued in 1833, at tho timo and on
tho occasion when South Carolina, by hor
celebrated Ordinance attempted to nullify
tho Laws of Congress. After picturing
tho blessings of fico government under
our Union, ho said:
"And then add, if you can, without
horror ami lemorse, this happy Union wo
will dissolve this pictttro of peace and
prospciity wo will deface this fieo inter
couibo wo will interrupt thoso fertilo
fields we will dclugo with blood the io-
lection 01 mat glouous ling wo denounce

what do you throw away theso inesliinablo

and a vilo dependence 011 a foreign power.
If your leaders could succeed in estab

situation? Arc you united at home are

discord, with all its fearful consequences?
Do our neighboring Hcpublics, every day
suffeiing somo new 1 evolution or contend
ing with some new insurrection do thoy
oxcito your envy? But tho dictates of n
high duty oblige mo solemnly to announce
that you cannot succeed. Tho laws of
tho United States must bo executed. I
have no discictionary powor upon the
subject my duty is emphatically pro
nounced in tho Constitution. Those who
told you that you might peaceably pre
vent their execution, deceived ynu thoy
could not have been deceived themselves.
They know that a forciblo opposition
could alone prevent tho execution of tho
laws, and they know that such opposition
must bo let. died.
Their objects is disunion; but bo not
deceived by names; disunion, by armed
force, is treason. Aio you really leady
to incur its guilt? If you arc, on the
head of tho instigutois of tho act be the
dreadful consequences on their heads be
tho dishonor, but on yours may fall tlio
punishment on your unhappy State
(South Carolina) will inevitably fall all
tho evils of the conflict you force upon tho
Government of your country. It cannot
accede to the mad project of disunion of
which you would be tho first victims its
fiist magistrate cannot, if he would, avoid
the performance of his duty tho conso-
quence must bo fearful for you, distressing

it was a standing refutation of their
slavish doetu'nes, and thoy will point to
our discord with the triumph of malignant
joy. It is yet 111 your power to disap
point them, lliero is yet timo to show
that tho descendants of tho Picknevs, the
Sumpters, the Rutlcdgcs, and of tho thou
sand other names which adorn the pages
of your lovolntioimry history, will not
abandon that Union to Mippoit which so
many of them fought, bled and died. I

as you lovo the canso of freedom, to
which thoy dedicato their lives as yon

of your country shall float over you
that you will not bo stigmatized when
dead, and dishonoied nnd scorned while

destroyors you cannot be. You may

cotirso of its prospciity you may cloud
its reputation for stability but its tran
quility will boiostored, its propoiity will
return, and tho stain upon its national
character will bo transferred and remain
an eternal blot on the memory of thoso
who caused tho disorder.
Fellow citizens of tho United States tho
threatof unhallowed disunion tho names
of thoso, onco rcspoctcd, by whom it is
uttered tho array of military forco to
support it denoto tho approach of a
crisis in our affairs on which the continu
ance of our unexampled prosperity, our
political oxistance, and perhaps that of
all tree governments, may depond. Tho
conjtinctui'0 demanded a free, a full and
xplicit enumeration, not only of my in
tentions, but of my principles of action;
and as tho claim was assorted of a right
by a Stato to annul tho laws of tho Union,
and oven to secodo from it at pleasuro, a
frank exposition of my opinions in iela
tion to the origin and form of our gov
ernment, and tho construction 1 give to
tho instrument by which it was created,
seemed to bo proper.
Having tho fullest confidence in tho
justness of tlio legal and constitutional
opinion of my duties which has been ox
piosscd, I rely with equal confidonco on
your undivided support in my dcloimina
tion to execute tho laws to preserve tho
tho Union by all constitutional means
to arrest, if possihlo, by moderato but
firm measuios, tho nocessity of a rocourso
to force; and, if it bo tho will of Heaven
that tho recurrence of its prinioval curse
on man for tho shodding of a biother's
blood should fall upon our land, that it bo
not called down by any offonsivo act on
the part of the United States.
Fellow citizens! Tho momentous case
is before yon. On your undivided sup
port of your government doponds tho de
cision of the great question it involves,
whether your sacred Union will bo pro

which that decision will be expressed,
will bo such as to inspire now confidence

Tho Republicans tell us that Mr. Dotn?
las, by this election, n politically dead.
Thov forgot that ho has four years to
servo in tho Senate of tho United Stales
and that in that' capacity ho will stay
there until Lincoln leaves the Presidency.
In tho Senate of tho United States for tho
coming administration Mr. Douglas will
be a master spiiit tholivo man of Con
giess. If Sir. Lincoln does not pursue a
correct policy, Mr. Douglas is in a posi
tion to ciiticiso it, and hold up his errors
to tho country a duty which ho will
fearlessly and oohlly discharge. It
would be much more coriect to say that
there is no future for Lincoln than to op
ply tho leinark to Mr. Douglas. Lin
coin's administration will make a finish
of him mark that! He will probably
leavo the Presidency hated and despised
by most of those who voted for him.
while Mr. Douglas, if ho lives, has thirty
years of political eminence beforo him.
It is absuid to tulle of a single reverse
killing such a man as Stephen A. Doug
las. Tlio Republicans should lemcmber that
Lincoln himself was defeated by Douglas
for tho bonatoin Illinois in 1858, nnd if
he can stand ono beating. Mr. Douglas,
with his siipciior talents and energy, can
stand a dozen. Mr. Douglas, although
1 uniiing against the piejudices and pas
sions of both exti ernes of the Union, who
had been mutually inflamed with hostili
ty to each other by tho acts of demagogues
and knaves, has received a greater number
of votes than any other man who was ever
beaten for the office. The Republicans
four years ngo were proud of tho race
which Fiemontmadc, who gotl,300,000
votes. Mr. Douglas has beat that, re
ceiving one million and a half. His vote
is moicthan double that of Breckinridge
or Uell. It is within fifteen per cent, of
that of Lincoln. It has this gloiious
psculiaritx.jQO.jiajLit i. distributed in
every otato 111 tiie union. urccKinnugo s
votes nro about all in the south; Lincoln s
aio about all in the Nnith, but Mr. Doug
las has thousands and tciis of thousand of
votes in both Northern and Southern
Statps. Ho nlono got a national vote.
His opponents leceivcd the votes of sec
tions. It is, all things considcrcc, a
paoud triumph for Mr. Douglas to havo
received one million and a half of votes
against two sectional candidates, ono of
whom had tho assistance of the federal
administration. Events will prove that
Mr. Douglas is just about as near being
Hilled politically as was General ilacKson
when the politicians defeated him in 1824
for President. Enquirer.
Away with such Folly.
In the dark days of 1850 when tho Re
public was on tho evo of a disruption,
Clay and Webster and Clayton, and o.h
ers on tho ono side, and Cass, Dickinson,
Bright nnd others representing a different
policy life long political enemies, struck
liands nnd rallied to tho rescuo of tho
country and saved it in its hour of peril.
By tlio madness of fanatical Abolition-
ists uio uonstituiion anu tho laws aro
nullified and fifteen of the States of the
Union denied their equal lights in the
common property of tho Union proper
ty bought with tho common blood and
tho common treasmo of all, and yet now
tho cry is no moio compromise no nunc
concession to tho slavo power. Away
with tho folly of calling justice a com
promise of calling tho doing away with
a wrong, concession. Givo the States of
tho South but their just l ights, thoy ask
nothing moro, they will submit to noth
ing less. "Let iustico bo done though the
Heavens do fall," is a maxim as honest
in politics as 111 morals. Abulo by the
Constitution uphold its compromises,
and all will yet be well. Havo tho oppo
sition no Websters, no Clays, no Clay
tons now as in 1850, to do away with
party for tho sake of tho country to do
right even if paity leaders run counter to
jnstico? Wo fear tho raco of giants and
of patriots in high places in tlio opposi

Escape from a Ten Year's Captivity
Escape from a Ten Year's Captivity with the Snake Indians.
A man calling himself Jarnoi P. Kim
ball, accompanied by his wife, arrived in
this city last week, in destitnto circum
stances, and was generously afforded
lodging and board at the Pennsylvania
Homo by Mr. Stino. Kimball iclates
that ho has just escaped fiom ten years
caplivity with the Snako Indians in Ore
gon. His narrative is published in the
Review. Wo condenso tho main facts:
In 1848 ho loft the homo of his father,
Col. Mewell Kimball of Syracuse, N. Y
for California, by the overland route, in
company with his father-in-law and three
unmarried daughters. When the party
with which ho was traveling reached Chil
licotho Valley, Oiegon, Juno 15th, thoy
woio attacked by about 4,000 Snako In
dians, but defended themselves for sever
al hours, killing 400 Indians and losing
ol their own number, leaving only 9
men and 4 women alive, who surrendered
to the savages.
They weie taken by the Indians to Min
eral Spring, at tho head of Chillicotho
Valley, wheio a council of twenty-font
biavos decided that they should run tho
gauntlet. Tho next day Kimball ran the
gauntlet twice, with half an hour's inter
val between each time first for his wife
and next for himself. Thesame day Mr.
Neal, his father-in-law, was also compell
ed to run tho gauntlet, but was knocked
down beforo reaching the centre of the
tivo lines, when he was sentenced to bo
burned at tho stake, which sentence was
put into execution tho same oveninc, in
tho presence of the party.
Another man of the party was likewise
buined at the stake, after which the In
dians proceeded to Faundecr
Washington Territory. The captive
wcro washed in a stream of water by
squaws till it was thought the white
blood was all washed out of them, when
the chief adopted them as his children.
riom mat tunc till nitcen months ago
they lived with tho Indians, wandering
..... . ... r. ..
with them through diffeicut parts of the
country. Kimball became their "Medi
cine Man, or doctor, and professes to
havo learned many remaikable ctuei for
cancer, iheumatism, etc. How ho finally
escaped Le does not say; but after fifteen
mouths tiavel he arrived in this place
last week, and expects to return to New
York as soou as ho can obtain the neces
His narrative is a strange one, and we
picsumo it is true.
The Infatuation of Lotteries.
The Philadelphia Piess, in an article on
the lottery offices of that city, gives the
following lemarkable instauco of their
fomfnlly deleterious ofToo'ii;
In the immediate vicinity of a certain
policy dealer the son of a country clergy
man resided. This vouth, the hope of an
estimable parent, was a journeyman at
somo branch of carriage making. He
came to town with a few bundled dollars
in cash, and the enticements of his neigh
bor over the way woio soon made known
to him. Straightway he became a patron
of policies. At tho first venture ho won
few dollars. Theso ho doubled and
staked again, and lost. Again he staked,
and again lost, until more than half of
his funds were taken from him. Made
desperate by failure, but still confident of
success, he staked all that remained, and
was penniless. His destitution made
him insane. Surviving a long illness ho
resumed his trade, but had no mind for
work. All his energies wore concentrated
upon the policies, and tho sad scene was
witnessed of tho errant lad sweeping the
pavement and doing menial service for
the man who had robbed him. His re
compense for (his debasement was the privi
lege of choosing three numbers gratuitously
in the policy list. Wo beheld him lately,
changed and dejected being, the weekly
recipient of n small sum from the policy
dealer. Ho occupies the position of copyist
that worthy's office, and his wasted
energies aro crazed into tho single lust of
winning. In a few months some moneys ,
loft him by a deceased relative will be re
ccived. It had been more direct for the
dead man to havo willed tho cash at once
to tho policy dealer. A few days ago, as
an evidence of returning mind, tho son
tho clergyman begged somo gentleman
"back" him as a policy dealer. To
such high expectations has tho child of
the Gospel herald aspiicd.
Getting His Dividend.
Yesterday a Wide-Awake went into
tho offices of one of our brokers, and
wanted same western money exchanged.
unfoitunately happened to bo bills of
somo of the refused Illinois banks, and tho
broker told him ho would take it at 30
per cent, discount. This demand appear
ing exorbitant, and ho demurred in lather
strong language. The broker then asked
him if ho wasn't one of tho fellows he had
seen around only a fow nights ago, with

Getting His Dividend. Well Put---Can't Throw Stones.
A leading Massachusetts politician, in
discussing tho disunion question, thus
looks at it properly from a Massachusetts
point of view. Ho says:
"It avails nothing for us in Massachu
setts to discuss tho question of tho expe
diency or inexpediency of secession, and
to endeavor to impicss on tho Southern
States the bacredness of the Union. So
long as tho Stato of Massachusetts main
tains a system of legislation plainly con
trary to tho Constitution in the very mat
ter of the special rights of the Southern
Slates, all cars are closed to appeals in
behalf of the Union from us. To such
appeals tho answer is ready, that when
we duly regard the Constitution ouuclves,
anil not until then, it will be competent
to us to exhort Slates to icspect and ob
serve it; that otherwise wo aro but mean
ly enjoying the benefits of tho compact
without discharging its obligations; and
that our laudation of the Union is alike
odious and tidiculous, whilo wo cling to
it only ns tho means of exerting the pow
er of the Federal Government to the spo
liation, oppression and wrong of fifteen
States of tho Union."
