little to do with the opposition to the admlf

speeches of the black republicans in Congress.
The texts given above are from the debate in
the House of Repr-entative8 on the Ztltb

ings and motives which govern the op
position to the I.ecompton constitution
In the North. Hatred of slava y, hos
tility to the South, underlie and give
sharpness and asperity to all that is 6aid
and done by them against the admission of
Kansas. They allege fraud, irregularities, op
position to the wishes of the people, and nu
. merous other objections; but the real objec
tion is that the constitution authorizes do
mestic Blavery. What care they for fraud, for
irregularities, for the wishes of the people?
Have they not attempted by the grossest
frauds, by violence and blood shed, by collect
ing armed bands of emigrants in the Northern
States, and pouring them into Kansas, paying
them to remain there to carry out their de
signs, and by corrupting the ballot box, to de
prive the emigration from the South of their
constitutional rights? It is too late in the day
to deny these things they are a part of the
history of the Kansas imbroglio and al
though it may beconvenient for some persons
to forget them, they remain upon the dark pa
ges of Kansas annals to be read of all, who
are not too blind to see them. It is idle to
deny that the real issue is slavery or no shivery
in Kansas. All other issues are mere adjuncts
thrown in to cover up to deceive tofurnir-h
excuses for those who would take advantage,
like Mr. Douglas, of the controversy to pro
mote ambitious aspirations. We would warn
the people of the South against permitting
themselves to be diverted from this real issue.
It should ever be kept prominently in their
minds. If the South divides on such an issue
no matter what the subterfuge or plea and
the anti-slavery sentiment of the North is per
mitted to triumph, we may never expect to
see another slave State added to the Union.
Colfaxes, and their confederates, having once
triumphed, and tasted the sweets of power,
will not forbear to exercise it. whenever the
occasion presents. " would nut vote for tlie ail
mission of Kansas if the whole peiiple came here
with a slave constitution." Let us Ix-nr this de
claration in mind, and when appeals are made
to us, based upon the supposed wrongs of the
free-soilers in Kansas, let it nerve us to resist
them, and to discharge our duty firmly and
unflinchingly. The declaration is opportune;
and presents us, in a single breath, more than
a volume could tell of the respect entertained
by the freedom shreikers for the opinions,
rights and privileges of the people. It strays
the fact that they have no respect for the rights
of the people.at least when in conflict with their
hatred or envy of Southern institutions ; and
removes them from the pale of our forlearance.
It exposes to us the true object of their attack,
and should lead us to the proper exertions to
meet and overcome them. Will not the
united South take advantage of this exposi
tion, and beat back our enemies ?

We are gratified to state that Mr. Mxynard
made a speech In the House of Representa

IpS We transfer below an article from the
New York Herald, of the 15th inst, on tlie
positions and prospects of Mr. Dorisi.ia. Al
most every day the Herald rais-.-s up its horos
cope and takes a peep into the future. It in
remarkable for the number of Its predictions
and lis utter disregard of its own prognostics.
If it keeps any files at all, it is not probable
that it would be guilty of the self-humiliation
of referring to them. The edition of to-day
seems to be the only concern of its political
editor. Nevertheless, iu the multitude of its
prophicies, it frequently happens that some of
them are fulfilled. It has never failed to 1e

Position and IropTl of 71 r. Sena
Some ten or fifteen years ago a small, osn
vessel, with a collection of live stock on Ismrd,
including a In-ar, several gee, nnd some pigs,
was turned loose from Navy Maud to run the
gauntlet of the fearful ui.uu rapid, aud falls
of Niagara. A large crowd or seetaton
, lined the Canadian shore to h itness the results
of the cruel but interesting experiment. Th
vessel at first sailed as smoothly over I he

thing in order, if he can, for his rM-nalotlaJ

Cairn or 1 two. Nor can we discover, from
t prrtx'jit position, Low he it to play any
other part in that momentous battle than the
part of Birney in 1844, of Van Buren in 1848,
and of Fillmore in 1856, as the chief of a third
party, holding the balance ot power, but with
out the power to turn it to any personal ad
' The present position of Mr. Donglas may
be likened more particularly to that of Martin
Van Buren in 1844, w hen be was thrown over
board by the democracy at Baltimore. Van
Buren, however, consented to an armistice In
1844, in the hope of another nomination in
1818. But, then, with the nomination of Gen.
Cass, the Little Magician" declared open
war upon the party, set himself up as the free
soil Buffalo platform candidate, and carried
oft half the democracy of this State with him,
by which defection the State was lost to Cass
and General Taylor was elected. The Wilmot
proviso, sprung upon the democracy in Con
gress in 1846, bad ripened into a great sec
tional agitation in 1848, so that Van Buren,
with his Buffalo platform of "no more slave
Territories," "no more slave States," was pos
sessed of the necessary Northern capital for
the achievement of his great revenge.
Mr. Donglas is not in a position to attempt
anything greater in I860 than the secondary
work of a disappointed ambition. He cannot
expect, even in a full and complete union with
the republicans, to supersede all the great guns
of that party, for its nominee for th succes
sion. He must consent, in eoinir ver tn th
republicans, to be absorbed, in the rauks, at
lea.-t for a campaign or so, before he can hope
to rise to the distinction of a leader. He will,
therefore, prefer the more prominent position
of the leader of a third party wielding the
balance of power. To this end he seems to
be deliberately directing his present move
ments, and to this end, also, the co-operative
labors of Governor Wise, Ex-Governor Walker
and Colonel Forney seem to be methodically
The Cincinnati Convention of 18 f treated
Mr. Douglas as cavalierly as did the Conven
tion of '44 deal with Van Buren. The latter,
as a Northern doughface, had done all that was
asked by Southern men on the nigger question;
but his crushing defeat in 1840 was superior to
all other considerations. It was self-evident
that if nominated again, he would be defeated
again, and so he was coolly set aside. So
with Mr. Douglas. The Northern groundswell
of 1854-'5 against his Kansas-Nebraska bill,
rendered it clear as the eun that neither
Douglas nor Pierce could touch bottom in the
North in the I'resideutial election of 1856 ; so
they were both set aside, and an available old
regular was taken up, who, besides being
sound as a national man, could prove the
most satisfactory alii a iu reference to that
Kansas-Nebraska bill. The task before Mr.
Doujjlas, therefore, is the revenge of Van
Buren, and his provocations and his pro
gramme are of the same pattern.
But there are yet two years intervening to
the campaign of 1KG0, and in these latter days
there is no telling the political changes and re
volutions that may he crowded within the mar
gin of two years. The political powers and
principles ot this country and of Europe may
all undergo the most momentous changes with
in this margin of two years. Within a few
months Kansas will le removed into the back
ground, and the important contingencies fore
shadowed in the present relations of Mexico,
Spain, England and France toward each other,
and towards ourselves, may soon be made, to
engross the attention of ull parties, sections
and factious. In view of our present relations
with Spain and Mexico, nnd considering the
present suggestive crisis in the subsisting al
liance between i ngland and France, it is pos
sible that, upon the basis of the Osteud mani
festo, and yet within the limits of internation
al good faith, quite possible that Mr. Buchan
an may initiate a foreign policy upon the heels
of this Kansas agitation, which will override
all other questions and issues U lbre the coun
try. North and South.
While, therefore, the Kansas imbroglio may !
afford just now some plausible grounds for this '
project of an independent balance of power
party on the part of Mr. Douglas, we must not
forget that in the interval to lt;o parties and i
party isues may undergo a complete revolu- ,'
tion and reconstruction, and that the power t
etlect this cn
tiange is still in the hands of the

and they were betrothed. Unfortunately, tin '
young lady's father entenrd his protest against .
this pleasant arrangement, and accordiugly
the young people put off the happy day in-
definitely. Alxnit a year afterwards she re '
ceiveda most tempting proposal, which, urged '
by her father, she accepted, and to the eternal t
despair of poor Robert, was married. But 't
alas fur the poor bridegroom ! Senrccly thret j
months had elapsed when a kick from a vi- )
clous horse kilted him. Itnltert consoled the
widow, and determined at the end of a year'
or so to marry her. He had too much respect
for her to press his suit inimi-diatcly, und did
not for fifteen months, when he proHsfd. To i
his horror, she inform) d hint that she w as al
ready engaged, and that iu three months more
her second marriage would Imj consummated.
Two years passed.
In the meantime, the widow and her bus-'
band had removed to Syracuse, N. Y., and
Robert, possess)-d by some strange hallucina
tion, followed tin tn. That season tin- cholera
swept that city, and among its victims was
the second husband. Robert allowed a year
to puss, and was ou the point of ur"iiir his
claims, when he received an invitation to her
wedding ! She was to he marrhd to her late
husband's partner. Rlrt remonstrated.
The lady assured him that her present step
was not one of love, hut purely of necessity.
The partnership affairs of her late lamented
were in such a state that settlement was'i
impossible, and to save immense losses she
had detcrmided ujon marrying the surviving
partner. She assured him, also, that her sen
timents towards him were unchanged, und
that should she ever become a widow again,
she would give him the preference. She was
married, and in a short time removed w ilh her
third husband to Detroit, Michigan. But a
fatality seemed to pursue her. Herself and
busltund were ou Ismrd a steamer that wus
wrecked near Buffalo some years since. The
husband erished, and she escMjicd only thro"
the superhuman exertions of a friend who
happened to Im on lsird. This friend was
young, unmarried, and his gallantry inspired
such sentiments in the breast of the widow,
that she married him U fore Robert hail time
lo claim her. When he h urutl the state of
affairs, he was souiew hut indignant, but she
toM him the cirr um-tances, and managed to
satisfy him with the promise that if ever she
oecame wmoaeu again, ne would most posi
tively marrv him. The lady with her fourth
husband settled upon a farm m ar Bucvrus,
while Roliert removed to Maustleld that he
miht be near her.
In the course of a year they removed to

i:-ape of the Adriatic.
Her 1 'off aye Arrosx the Atlantic Interesting Nar
rative Her Safe Arrival at Savannah.
From the Savannah Rrpubliean we condense
the following account of the escape of the
Adriatic, and her adventures up to the time of
her arrival in Savannah :
The American bark Adriatic, which became
famous from her disastrous collision w ith the
French steamer Lyonuais,in November. 18.6,
and still more an object o! interest from her
recent seizure by the French authorities at
Marseilles, her confiscation by the Court of
Admirality, and her sulisequent escape, ar
rived safely at this port at uu early hour yes
terday. The circumstances attending the collision
with the steamer Lyonnais.are already famil
iar to the public. Capt. Durham is very posi
tive that it grew out of no fault on the part
of his own vessel, but result) d, as he alleges,
from culpable mismanagement by the officers
of the steamer. The judgment of confisca
tion was reudered by the Imperial Court of
Aix iu December last, and as soon as a copy
was served on Capt. Durham, believinjr that
it w as impossible, in the excited state of the
public mind in France, to ohtaiu justice, he
I resolved to make his escape if possible, and
place the w hole matter in the hands of his
Government. Of course he had to resort to
strategem to accomplish his purpose,
He had her caulked all round for about five
f''t above the water's edge, under the pretext
that she was so open she would sink right
there in the harbor. What provisions they
got, were put on board another vessel and
from thence transferred to the Adriatic during
the nigut. the crew was also shipped tor an
other vessel, and sulsequently taken onboard
the Adriatic, when they were so much intoxi
cated as not to be conscious of what was go
Capt. D. commenced preparations to leave
on the evening of the 8th, his force consisting
of Capt. , two mates and a Ixvy. The
vessel lay in the middle tier, with both anchors
ahead, and moored with a hawser astern. The
vessel ahead was made fast to the chain, and
when the Adriatic slipped they let go the
other vessel, aud when the Captain awoke and
found himself adrift, he cursed the d d Yan
The crew were got on board by four o'
clock on the morning of the JMh. When the
Adriatic got abreast of the guard ship, her
lsat came off and demanded the fort-pass of
the former. Capt. D. when asked for his pass,
replied " prenez garde la," and threw the of
ficers a bit of paper with two sous wrapped
up iu it. The paper and money however,
went over the lsat and into the water. The
oflicer then inquired for the name of the ves
sel, when Capt. D. replied that she was the
American ship Luna, that hail cleared the day
before. The Adriatic then proceeded ou her
She arrived at Spezzia on the morning of
the llith ot January, anil anchored with the
kedge, having cut loose Ixith anchors and left
them at the wharf in Marseilles. Having no
bill of health, the Sardinian authorities would
not permit her to laud. Capt. I). then went
ashore himself, to the partrique oflice, where
he met the American Consul, who informed
him that intelligence of his escape had reach
ed there and that the French Government had
telegraphed to all the ports in the Mediterra
nean to stop the vessel in whatever port she
miht be found. Soon after her arrival, or
ders came from Turin to seize the vessel, and
the officers actually placed a gun lsat under
her stern, with two guns mounted, having re
ceive)! orders to tire should any attempt be
made by the Captain of the Adriatic to move
from the spot.
Col. Long, the U. S. Storckeejerat Spezzia,
kindly furnished the vessel with all she want
ed. Just as she got her provisions and water
ou IkiuiiI, there came on a fresh blow from the
north-ward, and the vessel was ridiug by the
kolge aud forty-five fathoms of chain, with
one of the chain Istxes tilled w ith stones to
hack it, aud a hawser bent to the other chain
The vessel kept drifting until Capt D. was
compelled to run a hauser ashore to the laza
retto, w here he made out to her, until he went
to town aud got his papers. Returning to the
bark, he put to sea.
The day follow ing the Adriatic boarded the
ship ElizaU-th Denuison, from w hom she got
more provisions ami an anchor.
The voyage from Madcria to the United
States was a long and tedious one, she having
encountered, alternately, claims aud head
winds, nearly throughout the passage. The
crew finally exhausted all their provisions
except a small quantity of beef, aud it e
caine necessary for the ship to make the near
est American port (Savannah) which she
reached iu safety, asts-fore stated.

The popular belief or opinion entertained
of spirit and miracles constitutes a positive
proof "of Divine revelation. Season witliout
imagination can create nothing, or should any one
prefer another formula of this idea, such as,
reason hat no creative power, we will not demur.
And, perhaps, it is equally true that imagina
tion cannot literally or-truly create anything.
Its materials of operation are not supplied by
its own power or providence. Give it materi
als and it can fashion and mould them indefi
nitely. An image always implies a previous
positive entity or existence. It could. not
make nothing the parent of something, any
more than it could create a sun, a moon, or a
star. Reason compares entities, but it cannot
compare non-entities. It must, too, have a
plurality of entities before it can institute a
comparison. These are incontrovertible facts
or principles which cannot be overthrown or
The Drama of Creation reported by Moses is,
therefore, incontrovertible. Creation implies
a creator and a creature. The human mind
can repose on nothing else. Each of these'
terms implies the other. There could not be a
crestor without a creature, nor a creature
without a creator. The first chapter of Gen
esis is wholly incontrovertible. The highest
reason, and the most fruitful imagination can
not entertain one objection to it. It is, there
fore, superlatively Godlike, It gives to man
in his origin a transcendant glory. He is a
miniature of God and of his universe in one
personality. Every thing reported in the
drama of creation is infinitely worthy of the
hight conception possible of the grandeur
and majesty of God. . So much so. that no
sage, no philosopher, no Jew, no Gentile, of
any school, has ever found one rational ob
jection to it. No imagination has ever con
ceived wherein, in any one point, it could
have been improved.
There Is not an automaton in all creation.
Where there is no will there is no power. We
talk and write of a material primum mobile.
It is a chimera of a disordered brain. All
true and real power, in its original and true
conception, is found in tcilL Hence the pro
priety of the word fiat fiat lux. " Let there be
light, and light was," or light began. But the
identical will that commanded it into being
continues it in being; and what is true of
it Is true of every other creature or creation
in the universe. This is the only true and re
al pillow for an aching head. The primum
mobile is the perpetwim molnle of the uui verse.
Or, in other w ords, the same trill that created
the universe continues, aud upholds it. This
is just as true an Oracle as that man "lives
and moves and has his being" in and by God.
There is nothing above him, beneath him, or
tievond him who inhabits eternity and who
fills immensity. Reason, all true reason, re
poses upon this pillow, and upon none else.
Paul, in Athens, affirms this grand oracle en
auto gar zrnnen. kai kinoumetha kai exmen. ' In
him, or by him. we live and move, and have
our iH'ing" "for we his offspring are" as
Aretas, a Grecian poet sang tou gar kaigmos
Christianity is wholly supernatural and Di
vine. No man or angi 1 ever had capacity or
knowledge adequate to its conception or in
vention. It is " no cunningly devised fable."
for one good and impregnable reason no man
had genius, imagination or erudition to conceive and
crtcule, or create it. Its claims, its moral and
spiritual power has brought to their knees
the Newtons, the Lockes, the Bacons, the Mil
tons, the Youngs, the Luthers, the Calvins,
the Washingtons, the Broughams, the Jetlreys.
the Jenyns, the Maeulays, of European and
American fame. The martyred legions of
Asiatic and European story are immortal wit
nesses of its eternal truth aud divine authen
ticity. But it is no mere theory, no pure philoso
phy. It is a Divine life seated in the heart of
man that transforms his heart, his spirit, his
life, creating him a son of God, and heir of a
glorious immortality, and fitting him for an
eternal life for an inheritance incorruptible
uudetiled and unfading as the throne of (rod.
Freaks of Fanaticism.
A man calling himself "Elijah, the Prophet,"
made his appearance in the streets of St. Louis
a few days since, dressed in a red robe, aud
drawing great crowds after him. He wore
his hair and beard long, both reaching nearly
to his waist. For fear of a disturbance, which
at one time seemed imminent, be was invited
by the police to sojourn at the Calaboose, du
ring his residence in that city. After the
excitement ceased, the Prophet was dischar
ged, and left the city lor some genial lati
tude. The people of Johnstown, Orange Township,
Hancock County, Ohio, we see, are violently
exercised by a report that an angel from
heaven has made a descent in that vicinity,
and Ik'cii holding converse with human beings.
This is the story (aud we give it with the
assurance that it is perfectly reliable, and
eutitled to confidence):
'Sometime in August last, a bright and
intelligent little girl, aged five years, and
daughter of Mr. Charles, who resides in the
locality decriled, while playing near the
well in the yard, atsiut uoon of the day,
seemed to discern something high up. in the
air, anil descending towards her. The attention
of the child was so much drawn to the object
that tier gaze became riveted upon it and, as
it drew nearer, she was observed to make
frequent attempts to reach it with her hands,
anil form a closer acquaintance with the
strange visitant. When the mother of the
child was called to the scene, the little girl
then informed her that she was now in the
presence of an Angel; that she had talked
with it; that it had made communications to
her; and furthermore, gave a description of it,
according in every particular with the gener
ally received impression of the uppearance of
these messengers from above. To satisfy
herself thai there could be no delusion iu the
matter, the mother entered into conversation
with the stranger, and after being satisfied of
the reality ot the interview after having tern
and talked trith the Any I, face to face and after
receiving information from it of the precise
time when her own death would occur she
retired from the spot, taking her little girl
with her, and the Angel, waring its bright
wings, returned Heavenward."
The story further runs, that the death of the
little girl took place on a day that had been
predicted by the angel and that all the
facts" have been sworn to before a Justice of
the Peace, Ac. Now, what next?
AmoEXTAiXT Shot. Yesterday morning
Mr. Williams, a merchant of lancey ville,
Tenn., was shot by the accidental discharge
of a pistol a revolver he had In his breast
pocket or waistband. He hail taken passage
to Memphis on the JtJm Iiaine. and went into
the larljer-sbop to wash, and while in a stoop
ing itosition the pistol fell from his breast, and
striking the marble slab that forms the wash-
ttciicli, it w as discharged ; the Itall, singularly
enough, ranging upward, striking bira full in
the throat, where it lodged. Dr. Flint, aud
others, were called ou, but we believe the ball
could not lie extracted.
Mr. Williams was in a very critical condi
tion up to the time the John Jiaine started to
New Orleans last evening, with but slight
hopes of his recovery. lie was utterly pros
trated, and it was thought be could not sur
vive the wound. H had been to Philadel
phia, w here he had purchased some 3,000
worth of goods, and, together with friends,
arrivtd here yesterday morning, or rather tbe
nigbt previous, on tbe Jteob Strader. He baa
