Washington, June 2.
' Sbsate. Mr. Bright being absent, Mr.
Stuart presided. - He laid before the sen
ate a mossago from the President, about
Central America, which has been published.
A resolution was adopted, that when the
sonata aijoura n Thursday next, it bo till
the" following Monday. '
The presiding officer laid before the sen
ate, a kttor from Preston S. Brooks .in
which he disclaims any intention of offend
ing against the privilege of the senate, by
nis assault on Sumner, but said he felt
bound to chastise Mr. S. for hi insults to
his state, and to his relative. He doomed
it proper to inflict that punishinant in the
senate, and did not think he was commit
ting any breech of privilege. Tho letter
was read and laid on the table, and ordered
to be printed. . Tho senate then adjourned
till Thursday. . . . . . .
HorsK. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, from
the select committee on the assault on Mr.
Sumner by Mr. Brooks, made a report, con
cluding as follows:
- "'vYhereas, the senate of tho U. S. trans
mitted a communication to this House rep
resenting that Preston S. Brooks, a repre
sentative from South Carolina, committed
on tho person of Chas. Summer, a senator
from the state of Massachusetts, while seat
ed at his desk in tho senate chamber, after
the adjournment of that body, on the 22d
cf May last, a violent assault, which disa
bled him from attending to his duty in the
senate and dc-claring that said assault was
breach of the privileges of that body;
and whereas, from respect of the privileges
of this House, the senate further declared
inasmuch as said Brooks is a member of
this House, they -cannot arrest or punkh
him for a breech of these privileges, nor
can they proceed further m the case, than
to make complaint to tlio House, and that
tho power to arrest, try and punish devolves
wholly on this body; and whereas, on lull
investigation, it appears to this House that
the said Brooks has been guilty of the as
sault complained of by tho Senate, with
the most aggravated circumstances of vio
lence, that the same was a breach of priv
ilege, not only of the senate, but of tho
senator assailed, and of this house as a co
ordinate branch of tho legislative depart-
ment of the government, in direct violation
f the Constitution of tho United States,
which declares, that senators and represen-
tatives for any speech or debate in either
house, shall not bo questioned in any other
place, and whereas this house is of the opin
ion that it has tho power and ought to pun
ish the said Brooks for said assault, not
only as a breech of privilege of the senator
assaulted, and of tho senate and house de
clared by the Constitution, but as an act of
disorderly behavior; and whereas, it fur
ther appears from such investigation that
Henry A. Edmundson, a representative
from Virginia, and S. M. Kcitt, a represen
tative from South Carolina, some time pre
vious to said assault, were informed that it
was the purpose of said Brooks to com
mit violence on the person of Sumner for
words used by him in debate, as a senator
in the senate of the U. S. and took no
measures to discourage or prevent the same,
bnt on the countrary, anticipation the com
mission of such violence, were present, on
one or more occassions, to witness the same

- Resolved, That Preston S. Brooks be and
is hereby, forthwith expelled from tho house
as representative from the state of South
Resolved, That this house is hereby de
clares its disapprobation of said act of H.
A. Edmundson, and S. M. Kcitt, in regard
to said assault."

... Mr. Howell Cobb, representing tho mi
nority of the committee presented a minor

The investigating Committee of the
House have prepared their report. It gives
a synopsis of the evidence taken, which cov
ers more than sixty printed pagss, and con
cludes with a resolution expelling Brooks

reported, that there has been no breach of
privelego, and if there had been such a
breach the House has no jurisdiction."

In the House to-day, an ineffectual effort

The Convention of tho Southern branch
of tho American party held its State Con

of the Sons of Temperance. The attendance
was slim, but few being present from the

that a State ticket was nominated, consist

was nominated for the Board of Public
Works, and John H. Kelly, of Perry, for
Coinmisioner of Common Schools.
The nomination of Commissioner was
first tendered Ui Mr. Anson Smyth, Editor
of the Journal of Education, but declined
by that gentleman for the reason that he
could not consent to weaken tho movement
toward arresting the violent action of the
slave power, by lending himself to the sup

upon tho great question of the dav but ex
pressing no preferences concerning the Pres
idential candidate. Ihey commit tho Em
pire State "immovcably to tho policy of sla

ahhorance of the recent outrages both in

no effort shall be spared to punish tho

not room for the resolutions at length, but
quote the following, as containing the germ
of what will soon expand into a leading po
litical idea the reserved right of States to
protect their individual representation in tho
national councils from anything in the Con
stitutions of tho new Stites seeking admis

R6solteo That the rights of the States, nud of tlto peo

and support, and we condemn the effort niakine in our
dav to fuse all Dolitiral power into one indiscriminate and
overshadowing nationalism, as contrajy to the fuith of
our fathers and perilous to Republican Institution. -
The character of the Convention, the num
bers and characterof those in attendance, the
harmony of its counsels, and decisiveness of
its action, are all most cheering indications
of an unity and persistency of purpose,
which are sure to triumph. . In tho present

This paragraph is ffoing the rounds of

several reasons ho is not worth money

Keating had no children, we beleive, who
needed any such relief. Thus a letter

Our intelligence is up to Tuesday evening.
No ballotings had taken place. Resolu
tions were to bo reported Wednesday morn
ing. The rules of the previous convention
were adopted for their government There
were two sets of delegates from New York
and Missouri. Both delegations from N. Y.
excluded, and the committee'arc still inves
tigating tho case. Tho " anti-Bentonians,
from Missouri, when refused admittance,
knocked the doorkeeper down and fought
their way in. Tho committee decided that
they wero tho truo delegates. It is impos
sible to guess who tho nominee will bo.
Tho opinion, however, is that Buchanan's
chances are tho best . - .
Wo do not profess to know for what ex
act purpose tho Messenger was established,
but wo suppose it was intended to bo a
weekly newspaper. For all practical pur
poses, however, tho subscribers to that sheet
might as well receive a series of old alma
nacs. Tho country has been ringing from
one end to tho other with the news of Law
rence sacked and burned, and of Sumner
assaulted and nearly killed on tho floor of
the United States senate. But tho Mes
senger furnishes to its readers only an ob
scure intimation of these events. No clear
statement of tho facts, as they are known
and admitted by ven of all parties, is made
in that sheet Wo presume none will be
made. Tho Messenger does not wish to
have its readers know that Douglas stood
by and saw Sumnor assaulted, and did
not interfere "least his motives might be
misconstrued"!- Nor does it wish them to
know that tho town of Lawrence has been
sacked and destroyed, and some of its in
habitants murdered in tho name and by the
authority of the government of tho United
States, as administered by President Pierce.
With a like disposition to cheat and con
ceal, the Messenger does not and dares not
tell its readers that every democratic mem
ber of tho lower House, save ono or two,
voted to suppress all investigation of
tho murder of Keating. Does tho Mes
senger really suppose that this courso of
suppression will win f and that its readers
will never know the facts Tn tho above stat
ed cases ? The Messenger practically puts
this estimate upon tho intelligence of its
subscribers. For our part wo shall set
them a peg higher, and believe that they
will read the Journal, or hear somebody
talk that has read it. . And this is tho pa
per that appears as a new light in Sandus
ky county ! This is tho sheet which is to
supply food for tho unterrilied democracy;
which is to satisfy a great want beyond the
ability of tho Democrat to meet V e sug
gest that in case the Messenger should be
unable at any time to supply its multitud
inous subscribers, it may find a lot of last
years almanacs at Bucklands or VVoosters.
Tho Sandusky County Democrat, in
times past assumed to have some compunc
tions of conscience, but now it has none, and
will go any thing that is required by tho
slave democracy. It has no sympathy to
express for tho persecuted freemen of Kan
sas, the wives mado widows, tho children
orphans, through tho murder of their com
panions and fathers, by tho Missourians un
der tho order and protection of President
Pierce. He cannot say one word in regard
to one of tho most inhuman outrages that
was ever perpetrated, by the assault on Mr.
Sumner by Brooks. How boldly and open
ly tho Democrat proclaims for freedom
only it don't Wo would not bo surprised
to see it, in a week or two from this time,
endorse the assault on Sumner and the sack
ing of Lawrence, as justifiable and right
g3T Two weeks since tho Messenger as
serted that a white man had been killed in
Soipio township, Sc-ncca county, by a black
man, and that tho "black republicans,"
helped to run him away from justice. Tho
Tiffin Tribune says:
"Whether you are the author of the above, Mr. Botcfur,
or not, it is a uiistrable falst-hood.
There has not a man been killed in Scipio
iu three years. The Tribune further says:
"Speaking of Scipio. the charge made in this paper some
time ince, that the blark-lorofuros electioneered for and
voted for a negro, hl.ick ns night, at the last spring elec
tion, remains uncontradicted and is a well known filet.
You nili make but little in stirring np tho "colored gen
tleman iu the fuel" down ai Reimblic."
g3T Wo neglected to state in our paper
hist week that, Mr. Jeremiah N. King, of
Rollcrsville, in this county, was ono of tho
persons killed by tho late railroad disaster
on tho Isthmus.
The Subjugation of Kansas.
Tho subjugation of Kansas, and tho in
famy of this administration and its support
ers, will go down tho stream of time togeth
er. : In the name of the Union and by the
power of its arms, a crime has been commit
ted which can only find its parallel in tho
persecutions which have been endured by
tho lovers of liberty and religion in by-gone
ages. A grand jury in a U. S. Conrt, un
der the instructions of a U. S. judge, have
declared a printing office a nuisance, solely
because it advocates tho formation of a free
state ; a hotel a nuisance solely because it
was built and owned by a freo state man;
a bridgo a nuisance solely because it exacted
toll of border ruffians; and under the order
of tho U. S. court, the printing office, the
hotel, and the bridge have been destroyed.
With a natural extension of these powers
of destruction, the mob which a U. S.
marshal called to his aid, havo pillaged
houses, robbed travelers upon the highway,
murdered free state men, and shot at wo
men. Do our readers realize that while
they havo been resting in their houses under
the protection of law,' the inhabitants of
Lawrence have been driven from thoirhomes,
their women and children flying to the woods,
and ravines for safety? Do they under
stand that in this year of our Lord 1856, in
this republic, a whole community has been
subjugated, and placed under mob law, sole
ly for loving liberty too well J Do they
know that tho blood of free state men, with
out trial and without oven a charge of crime,
has been shed on tho plains of Kansas f
The men who bavo committed those
crimes, beginning with thoso who planned
and contrived the legal frame in which they
havo been clothed, in tho language of James
Watson Webb in reference to tho murderer
Brooks, "deserve instant death." Pierce
and Douglas with every man from the north
who has aided in the attempt to force slave
ry on Kansas deserve tho halter; and
though they may escape a literal felon's
death, posterity will hang them on tho gib
bet of its unmeasured execration. Pierce,
Douglas and their helpers havo achieved
immortality, but it will bo tho immortality
of Judas Iscariot and Benedict Arnold.
Had any man or body of men under the
English government committed like crimes,
their heads would have inevitably fallen.
But our readers will ask what is to be the
end of these things i Is Kansas to be a
slave state ? Is the reiarn of terror which
has been inaugerated in Kansas ami in
Washington, to bo rendered perpetual by a
triumph of tho slave democracy in the com
ing presidential election ? We confess that
the prospect is dark. Men are found at the
north, and at our own doors, who justify the
sack of Lawrence, tho subjugation of Kan
sas, and tho assault on Sumner.
In Sandusky county a paper has been
established with the very end and purpose
of sustaining tho mon who planned and
have executed this crime against the people
of Kansas, and against hnman liberty.
Whether this peculiar visitation is on ac
count of our sins we can not say, but the fact
remains. Douglas, tho arch villian in this
plot to overthrow freedom, is weekly lauded
and his lying speeches published in this pa
per called, by way of joke wo presume, the
Such is tho madness of party. So utterly
has the truo spirit of liberty departed from
the leaders of what is called democracy.. The
friends of liberty are indeed a vast majority
iu tho north ; but they are divided and it is
to bo feared that they cannot be brought
to unite their forces in tho coming contest
Their opponents will present an undivided
front Thousands who do not mean to vote
against liberty will yet do this by support
ing tho democratic nominee. Such is the
strength of party ties. They havo been
told that Kansas could never beasiave State,
that the intent of tho repeal of tho Missouri
compromise, and the Kansas-Nebraska bill
was to make these territories freo states.
And now, when these lies and frauds are
no longer tenable, others will bo found
equally deceptive, and perhaps equally ef
fective. Still wo do not despair. If tho friends
of freedom vill unite, the victory is certain
ly ours. If every man who hates slavery
and would shut it up in its present limits,
and divorce tho general government from it,
would vote according to his convictions, tho
sham democracy and its villainous leaders,
would bo buried beneath an avalanche of
public hatred so deep that tho seven last
thunders would not disturb them. In tho
mean time with strong confidenco in tho
right we shall still do battle for liberty.
If tho slave democracy triumph in tho com
ing presidential campaign, "they will so
abuse their victory, ho lash of the slave
drivers will bo so brandished over tho heads
of tho American people, that long beforo
its four years' lease has expired, its last sup

The Messenger cannot inform its subscri

Indignation Meetings. There is scarce
ly a largo town in tho State, but what has
during tho last two weeks called mass meet
ings, that the people might express their
feelings in regard to Kausas matters, tho
weakness and imbecility of tho president
in allowing civil war to bo so long raging
there. Tho attack upon senator Sumner
has been characterized as it rightly deserved
cowardly and despicable. Wonder if tho

The State Ticket.
We this week put forth the Republican
State ticket for tho suffrages of the people.
The nominations made aro most excellent
and cannot fail of pleasing tho mass of the
freemon of Ohio. Tho remarks mado bo
low, we copy from the Sandusky Register:
The nomineo for the Supreme Bench,
Judge Bowen, of Marion County, is well
known in this section of tho State having
been fourteen years upon tho Common
Pleas Bench, a part of the time on this
Circuit For untiring industry and eminent
judicial ability he acquired a high reputa
tion; while he enjoyed the esteem both ot
tho Bar and tho public, for his many admir
able personal qualities. Politically, he has
ovory claim to tho confidence of the people.
As long ago as 1839 ho suffered "in free
dom's cause," at the hands of a mob of
slave-catchers and their too-willing tools,
for his consideration tor a fugitive from "the
peculiar institution." Tho North West in
preferrinji his name for Supremo Judsre,
strengthened their claim to a representation
on the ticket by the character of the candi
date presented. In recognising that claim,
the Convention have made a judicious selec
tion. Josiah Scott, of Butler Co., the nominee
for tho long term, as ono of tho Supremo
Judges, representing tho Southwestern part
of the State, is one of tho best and truest
men of that section. His extensive legal
acqirements, and unsullied rectitude of char
acter and purpose, eminently fit him for the
responsible post which tho Republicans of
Ohio will undoubtedly decree ho shall fill.
The nominee for School Commissioner,
Rev. Anson Smyth, posseses the requisites
of experience in the science of teaching, sin
cere devotion to the cause of education, and
administrative ability. As Superintendent
of Public Schools in Toledo, he has acquir
ed a deservedly high reputation, which tho
Teachers of the State, last winter, endorsed
by placing in his hands the principal editor
ial charge of tho Ohio Journal of Educa
tion, a publication which has done more
for the advancement of common schools in
this state, and for tho elevation of tho
standard of teaching, than perhaps any oth
er single instrumentality.
For Member of tho Board of Public
Works tho Convention made an excellent
nomination. - Tho candidate, John R. Wad
dell, of Ross, is a practical engineer and
posesses just tho right kind of experienco to
fit him for the intelligent and economical
discharge of his practical duties as Member
of tho Board of public works. In tho Sci
oto Valley, where he is best known, ho will
command an unprcccdcnt vote.
The Presidential Electors at Largo, Messrs.
Caleb B. Smith of Hamilton, and Jacob
Perkins of Trumbull, are faithful represen
tatives of the Republican sentiments inOhio,
and aro in every way worthy of tho. confi
dence reposed in ti.em by the Convention.
With the above state ticket we go heart
ily and cheerfully into tne contest, assured
of success not only because tho principles
we uphold are right but because the men
who represent these principles are true.
To Ont PaDKKP. With this- number we finish the
speech of Hon. S. A. Douglas on Kansas aJTaira. We know
it has done good it has pot to rest the unfounded asser
tion, that the democratic party were in favor of etend
ing the area of slavery," it has placed matters in the
hanls of the democracy with which they have been able
to put down the false assertions of the black republicans
it nas strengthened the party and weakened Che opposi
tion Messeager. r ,
We can scarcely conceive of tho small
amount of common sense that man has who,
having read this speech, and being convers
ant also with tho facts in regard to the
workings of Kansas territorial laws, would
believo anything in it The administration
have been executing tho laws. Pierce,
Douglas, Shannon, Atchison, Stringfollow,
and all those who would bow to slavery,
have striven might and main to plant slave
ry there. They havo driven some of tho
freo state men out others thev have killed.
They havo burned their property and rob
bed them of every thing they could. , Yet,
the Douglas Advocate, has the impudence
to declare that they "know it has done good."
Not satisfied by such brazen-f;iced asser
tions, it pitches into the editor of the Dem
ocrat in this manner:
"And it would have been better for our party. In our
opinion, had other democratic papers done the same."
Brother Flaugher, will you stind such
imputations as havo been cast upon you by
these men who declare you aro no demo
crat?" ' ' ......

MR. BROOKS TO SENATOR WILSON. FLINT'S HOTEL, May 27, 1856.
Sir: In the senate to-dav, when referring;
to tho collision with Mr. Sumner, you spoke
of my conduct as "cowardly," thus making
yourself an arbiter of true courage.
In deliato in the senate heretofore, you
declared yourself responsible for what you
might say there and elsewhere.

I have never entertained or expressed in

responsibility in the sense of the duelist.
