The fatal stars were pitiful,

A Noble and Christian Act.
.A Clevelandor who was in New York
city, and attended Hexry Ward Beech
er's church on the 25th nit., writes home
to the Cleveland Herald, an account of the
deeply interesting scene which took place
immediately after the close of the morning
service, a no writer says: . -..
After the morning service at Mr. Beech
er's church, yesterday, he slated to his
large congregation that ho was about to do
an unusual thing. Some two weeks ago,
he had received information that a colored
Uirl was offered for sale iu a slavo market
hy her ow n father. The circumstances of
hor sale were well known by one of the
slave dealers, and he took her at the price
asked, $1,200, and told her she should have
a chance f lmying herself. IL gave her
$100; another slave- trader gave Lcr $100,
and in Washington she raised $.500 more.
Mr. B. said that if she would come here,
lie would make an effort to raise the bal
ance, rifwsome negotiation,-- she came
on ; ami he asked her to come forward nu
the platform. Mio tniKte her appeaninee

very Mr. Beech.-r said truly "It was said
at tho Sonth that the abolitionists were

that if any church of minister had the repu

A fatal accident occurred on tho ' Mad
River Road Saturday night, four miles south
of Urbana. The iiisfbt passenger train from
T-a.. ' .1 , . 11'
uny ion, coming norm, ran into a tree w men
nau laneii across uie iniCK, at 1110 place
above named. Ihe locomotive was turned
from the track but not tip-t. The tender
pitched into the house of the engine, crush
ing the engineer, Mr. George Bryant, np
against the boiler, smashing his head, break
ing his neck and bruising him otherwise iu
a shocking manner. He was, of course, iu
stanlly killed. Mr. Rowe, a former engin
eer on the road, but now of tho Dayton and
V estern Road, was on tho engine at the
time. He was thrown underneath Mr. Bry
ant, and, with three Tibs broken, lay in this
dreadful position for some time till he was
rescued. Yet with most wonderful presence
ot mind, he closed the steam cocks, whicli
had opened with the concussion, and gave
orders for letting off tho steam, putting out
the hres, kc., to keep tic engine from burn
ing. All tins time the dead engineer was
pinned to tho Iwiler and his blood flowed
down over Mr. Rowe, whose endurance sup
ported him without fainting until he was
extricated. The fireman escaped with little
injury. The damage to the locomotive and
train was comparatively smalL
Mr. Bryants remains were sent East ves-
terdar, for interment- Ho came from Sa
lem, Mass., a few months since, and was
much respected. He was unmarried. Mr.
Rowe is w ith his friends at Carey, and, at
last accounts, w as doing well. San. R"eg.
On ono of the most conspicious corners in
Chicago, is a large six shry building, built
bv a ch'rk in the city, with funds purloined
from his employer. When detection be
came unavoidable, he left town, and sent
back an agent to negotiate. The matter
was finally arranged by the cmnlover takimr
the building, and raying the thief ten thous

RURAL SCENES AND PLEASURES.
The sylvan retreat is the locality for med

the wisdom of God in the brightest, loveli
est, and most intelligent characters upon the
broad bosom of tho liberal earth; in green
est leaves, in richest fruits, in beguiling and
delicate flowers. .. How much has the Cre
ator done, for man Ho lias given him a
home and surrouflded it with all the objects
of sense and sentiment, which are to supply
hi9 physical and moral necessities.'; Birds
sing in the boughs above, him, odors scent
tho air, and fruits cover tho -earth with a
glory to which that of Solomon in all his
magnificence, was vain and valuless.- To
His hand we owe these fair ' groves these
ranks of majestic trees these deep forests
these broad plains covered with verdure
the mighty flood and dark flowing river,
fertilizing the soil, winding through and
beautifying nature with the lovliest inequal
ities. . ....
Ungrateful man oftimes forgets the source
of all his blessings. How kind and benev
olent was Ho to dedicate, this great planta
tion to the uses of the human family.v He
prepared man's home supplied it with re
sources adorned it with every variety of
fruit and flower, and, checkered with abund
ance, man is conducted within its pleasant
limits, and ordained under the very eye and
sanction of heaven. , 0 ! how beautiful is
earth ! Its groves are instinct with lifo arid
purity, and the blessed tars rise at night,
like jewels in the distance, to keep watch
over the consecrated interests of man

a Federalist. But his Federalism was not
of that unpatriotic kind which characterized
that faction in Now England, and induced
it in the war of 1812 to oppose its own coun

had taken away tho power of re-creating

source of our national and individual wealth
after they had, by refusing the Bank on
the United States a continuance of its char
ter, embarrassed the financial concerns of
the Government, and withdrawn the on
ly universal medium of the country from
circulation; after the people had been un
accustomed to and of course unwilling to
bear taxation ; and without money in the
treasury they rashly plunged us into a war
with a nation more able to do us injuriry
than anv other in tho world. What was
the dreadful necessity for this desperate
measure? Was our country invaded ? No.
Were our liberties in danger ? No. Was
it to protect our little remaining commerce
from the injuries sustained by the orders in

favorite, and the merchants wished for no

Mr. Buchanan Squats on the Platform.
The Keystone State Club visited Mr.
Buchanan at his residence at Lancaster to
congratulate him on his nomination.
Mr. Buchanan made a short speech, and
thus planted himself upon tho nigger driver
piauorm. 110 said:
Gentlemen, two weeks since I should
have made you a longer speech, but now I
have been placed upon a platform of which
I most heartily, approve, and that can speak
for me. Being tho representative of the
Great Democratic partv, and not simply
James Buchanan, I must square my conduct
according to the platform of that party, and
insert no new plank nor take one from it.

Fiendish Outrage by Southerners.
A Kansas correspondent of tho Chicago
Jribune says: A few days previous to the
sacking of Lawrence, two young ladies were
violated by a gang of "law and order" ruf
fians, on a claim five miles northwest of the
They lived on the claim with their moth
er. Their father had recently gone East
on business. They saw four or five men
seize two of their horses in the field and lead
them off. They went down and protested
against the act. The ruffians seized them,
carried theni down to tho woods, and consu
mmated an outrage upon their persons. .
There is a day of retribution coming for
all this and that speedily.
A Fact for Old Whigs.
It is a fact which can never pass out of
the recollection of the admirers of Henry
Clav, that James Buchanan was tho author
of the atrocious charge of ''barcrain and
corruption" made against Henry Clay and
John Quincv Adams, in 1825. Never was
there uttered a baser, more malignant, or
more uufouuded slander, and it is safe to
predict that the remnant of that glorious
party who idolized the gallant Clar, will
hesitate long and reflect well before t hey be
stow their vote on a man v ho attempted to
assassinate his reputation.

Why Mr. MeGee's letter was not present
ed Jy the presiding officer of the convention
to that body, we cannot say, but it is fair,
to presume that the opinions held by Mr.
Buchanan in relation to foreigners, had
something to do with the ominous silence
which prevailed generally in regard to
adopted citizens, and particularly with ref
erence to the KeatiDg mnrder and Mr.
In a Fourth-of-July oration, some years
since delivered at Lancaster, Pennsylvania,'
Mr. Buchanan in speaking of the Demo
cratic Administration of James Madison,
held this language : .. , . :

to turn out of power, those weak and wick
ed men who have abandoned the political
path marked out tor this country by Wash
ington, and whose wild visionary theories
nave been at length tested by experience
ana tound wanting.
Aud then immediately following this
denunciation of tho democratic party, and
as a climax to tho above, Mr. Buchanan
spoke of foreigners thus: '

' 'Resolved, That tho American democracy

the creed and practice of federalism, nnder
whatever name or . form,' which seeks tf
palsv tho will of tho constituent, and whfcS
conceives no imposture too "monstrous for
the. popular credulity. ''.".''".'."""
How what said this Mr. Buchanan aBout;
this Democratic party when ho spoke for
himself, and when not dazzled with tho
hope erf office ' Ha spoke thus': : ' ' -
There was a powerful faction In the Lif
ted States opposed to the adoption of tho
rcderal Constitution, ihe" individuals of
which it was composed were called anti-federalist,
and were the founders of the Den
ocratic party. ' They . gloried in setting
themselves in array against our present ad
miirable form of 'government. Tho au-
thors of.this, operatiou were cLief.y dema
gogues, who might have raisen to the hea.
of a State faction, buf who' felt conscious
that their talents, would bo eclipsed, when
the' lumniaries of tho United States would,
bo collected around ' the ' General Govern
ment. . "To gratify their" ambition," they
wish that this country should continue divii
ded into a number of petty State sovereign
ties,' without any efficient governmetit, fiir
their control. , This they dcsire.l, although!
they had the example or an encient Geco
before their eves, and well tne the clash
ing interests of the State and their mutual
jealousy kept aliva by-alliances with differ
ent foreign nations, would have made this
country a perpetual theatre ' of contention!
and civil war, until it Lad fled for refuge
into tho arms of despotism. ; ' "
j Again the platform makes-Mr.Buchanari
say as follows : . -,-0
That the liberal principles embodied by
Jefferson in tho Declaration of Independ
ence, and sanctioned by tho Constitution
which makes ours the land of liberty and
tho asylum of tho oppressed ' of every na
tion, have ever been cardinal principles iri
the democratic faith, and every attempt to
abridge the privilege of becoming citizens
and the owners of soil among us, ought to
be resisted with the same spirit which swept,
the alien aud sedition laws from our statute
books.' :,.;.-' :-,.-.:.ivi
On the occasion when. Mr. Buchanan
spoke of the Democratic party as the ene
mies of our republican form of government
he uttered these words;.' "' , ' ' : ''
Above all, wo ought to drive from our
shores foreign influence,' and cherish exclu
sive American feelings. Foreign influence
has been in every 8go the curse of Repub
lics.' Her jaundiced eye sees all things in
false colors ! : The thick . atmosphere of
prejudice, by which she is. forever surroutt
cd, excludes from her sight the light of rea
son. ' ' .."- V ; .1 V -r.-t
But the most unpalatable morsel which
this platform puts into "Mr. Buchanan's
mouth, is this:.. ; .. , .)' ...
Resolved, That Congress has no power
to charter an U. S. Bank ; that we believe
such an institution one of deadly hostility
to the best interest of tlie country..- -'
Among the charges which Mr. Buchanan
once brought against the Democratic party,
was, that "it refused (he' United States
Bank a continuance of ill . charter and
embarrassed the financial concerns - of the
government, withdrawing tho' only univer
sal medium of tbo country from- oscula
tion." . - " -:!)

The affair occurred on the 14th. Casey
had bean arrested. Citizens . are muca
excited. A meeting of the old Vigilance
Committee was called. Placards, of as
inflammatory character, were posted, calling
on citijens to take tho law into their own
hands. On the 18tb,' 300 citizens, con
pletely organized into companies and divis
ions, and armed with muskets, marched
from tho Committee Rooms, and had taken
possession of the jail, and took thence Cas
sey, together with Cora, the gambler and
murderer of Gen. Richardson, and carried
them to the Committee Room. Here thej
were strongly guarded until tbe steamer
sailed. It is supposed they would bo hung.
Tho whole city was draped in mourning for
the death of King. Casey was formally
an inmate of Sing-Sing (N. Y.) Prison; a
statement of which fact, published in King's
paper, led to the aitncuity. ihe Vigilanco
Committee was fully organized, throughout,
