The Kansas Outrages.
We publish in this week's issue a Memo
rial of the Fie Slate citizens of Knnsus lo
the next Congress, letting forth in a calm
and ration ,1 manner the hislory of the recent
OUtttpt (we J-viil not call it an election,)
which occurred in that territory. Let not its
length deter any from a careful perusal of it.
Will the Democracy still say that there is
no use for the present Anti-Nebraska party!

tators." und "designing traitors?" Thepres
' ol lbs Slave Democracy nil over the country
is remarkable quiet under the circumstan

brow-b aten and insulted with the most ab
ject servility to the patriarchal institution.
Have they more love for the South nnd her

her free institutional Have they greater
I respect fnr the hand that boats them than
for the hand that feeds them! Verily, they
seem to have by their action in '.he premie
The present agitation in Kansas is clearly
traceable to the Democratic party of the
country. It is the legitimate and direct fruit
' of the repeal of the Missouri Compromise.
It is the result of that unholy action by which
( we cast a shnde upon the lair name of our
Union and repudiated a solemn compact.
Look at the result! Kansas is a battle field,
tho contestantf ate Freedom and the free in
stitutions of the North, on the one side, and
slavery nnd the traffic in human flesh and
I blood on the other. Who, in Ohio, can long
hesitate on which side to array himself!
Anti-Slavery sentiments are no longer out
lawed a', tie North. It is no longer dan
gerous to aland up in public places and pro
claim one's hatred of slavery, and love lor
freedom. Anti-slavery sentiments are guin
ling ground-and becoming popular, and
thtrefore fashionable. With these fact Le
fore them and the manifest d 2 sign on the part
( of the South and her sympathizers to spread
! still further the institution of Slavery, is it
strange tint myriad.-, of men have Inken a
stand und declared that there shall be no
more slave stales admitted into the Union
Ihat slavery shall be abolished in the Dls
j trict of Columbia that the Fugitive Slave
1 Law shall be repealed the Misouri Com
pron ise re-eatablisbsd and Ihut the General

I vorced Irnm slavery. Let it be confined
within its present limits, and let slaveholders
i j manage their own ufl'uirs, make their own
' luws, and calch tlirir own niggtri, we will nol
do it, nor can any court in the Union com
' pel us to. Theea things are what the Anil
Nebreskaill demand and whul no one will
deny but Congress has the power to do. II
n-iy man entertains similar sentiments let
him connect himself with the Auli-Ncbrssku
party ol Ohio, which will continue, wc hope,
through evil and through good report, to
work for tho realization if what will un
doubtedly be a "good time."

Australia and its Gold Fields.
By EDWARD H. HARGRAVES.
Mr. Hargruvcs is the discoverer of gold in !
Australi, and the cluc-l interest of th-s vol
ume csjiisists in hi description of the discov
ery. From New Sooth Wale he went to
California to eek his fortune, and, being
struck with the similarity olthegold coun
lry there to skveral districts in Australia, be
became convinced thai gold would be found
in the latter. He returned lo mak the die
ccveiy, and proceeding into the country,
this it the account he gives ol his
ll.e landlady of the Guyong inn, Mrs.
Litter, htd teen belter days. 1 had known
her during her husband's life lime. Shew-as
now a widow. It occurred lo me that could
not prosecute my plsns efficiently without
aisiilauce, and that Mra Litter waa 'a per
aon iu who a I could aalely confide, and h
would pro! ably furnish nic with a guide and
nil the BSeeSSry Imp'sMitS. Alter dinner,
therefore, I disclosed lo her ths object of my
visit, and begged her to procure n black fel
I v as guide lo the spot I wished to visit
Hi si; for, though this part ol the world wn
many years back, pretty well known to me,
it is a matter of no small dsnger to at
lempt to penetrate alone the dense lorcste
that cover the whole lurrounding country.
She entered with a woman's lieartineis into
my views, and offered me the assistance of
tier son, a youlh of about eighteen vears of
sgt, who he assured nie knew the country
j well. He was, therefore, mndo ncquuisted
j with my object, and at my request provided
' me with the requisite tool a spit,l! "pick, a
1 'rowel, and a tin dish for washing ihn
j After resting ono day at Guyong, 011 the
12lh of February I started thence, accom
panied by young Lister. Our course was
down the LsVBi Pond Creek, a tributary of
tho Macquurie river After travelling a dis
j lance, ol shout fifteon miles I found myself
: in Ihe country thai ( was so anxiously long
ling to behold again . My recollection ofit
1 had not deceived n,e. The resemblance of
j its formation to thut of California could not
I be doubted or mistaken.
1 My guide went for water to drink, and,
' after making a hasty repast, I told him that
we were now in the gold fields, and that tho
gold was under his feel as ho went to fetch
the water lor our dinner. He started with'
iucreilulsus amazement, and on my telling
him that I would now find gold wntched my
movements with the most intense interest.-
My own excitement was probubly far nnro
' intense than his. I took the pick and
, scratched the gravel off a schistose dykK
: which ran across the creek at right angles
1 wl.h its side; and with the trowel I dug a pan
ful of earth, which I washed in the water
1 hole. The first trial produced a little piece
of gold. "Here it is," I exclaimed; and I
then washed five par.luls in succession, oh'
I talning gold from all but ono.
I i No lurther proof was necessary. To de
scribe my feelings at that eventful moment
would be impossible. What I said on tho
instant though I must admit not warranted
as the language ofestm reflection has been
since much laughed nt; and, though my rea
ders may renew the laugh, I shall not hesi
, j tate to repest it, because as it was the natur
al and impulsive expression of Overwrought
- feelings at tho moment, so it is the onlyac
, count I can now give of what thoso feelings
I "This, I exclaimed to my guide, "i a mem

be disappointed. Mr. Hurgraves was made a
commissioner of crown Innds, and, on leaving
Sidney some time after for the land of Ophlr,
: this scene occurred:
DISAPPOINTMENT AND DANGER.
When ubout two miles from Sydney I mot
w ith b member of the Leg'tlstlve Council,
I who begged me to retrace my steps assuring
; me that I should lose my life if I ventured to
: proceed; for lhat there were hundreds of un
successful diggers not fur in advance, on
their return from the diggings, who declared
lhat I had deceived them, and that they we'd
1 put me to deuth.
Nevertheless 1 procpcdedon my way, and
cjr'.ainly met many returning from the
mines. Fortunately I as not known to any
of them. I t coot ted minj of them in pass
: ing, but was ahooked to heur at times tha
j most horrid imprecation levelled against
I what they called the i'curse of God," s man
j '-Who had brought them uc-oss tho mountain
I j in search of gold." in answer to my inqui-
; ries one said that there was a little fold, but
. j that it was ull dug out; he hud lest four
j pounds, sixteen shilling, and had not got to
I the value of n farthing, betides having to
I I cross and recross the mountains; another had
1 lost fifteen pounds, another twenty pounds,
I and another thirty p muds.
i But it would be in vain for me to attempt
I lo describe ull that I witnessed at this parti
! culur juncttre. Among other strange sights
IJsaw u blind aian led by a lame one, trudg
I inji across the mountains en route for tho

I I lams man wus hopping on crutches, and tho
I blind man hud hold of his right hond. -vhicli
I wus extended over the crutch. Thousands
j who stalled fro mi Sydney never reached half
wuy, und seeing as many com ng back as go
