An Appeal to Kentuclttans.
14 t BT TIEBMIXi:.
These stanzas arc from the pen of a gifted lady.
a native of Louisiana, and a daughter of one of our
most distinguished Generals, now in command of an
important post in Virginia. Born in the camp and
nurtured amidst Jhe stirring scenes of our south
western border, her muse early caught the inspira
tion thich flows from deeds of valor, and. from the
first blow in our war for independence, has nerved
the patriot arm to strike for freedom.
Tha lines were suggested by Gn. Ecckxeh's late
fervid appeal toTTentuckiartf

Lincoln and llnscln against England.
Among the phenomena which the war for in
dependence has brought forth to the eyes of the
world, very prominent, says the New Orleans
Picayune, isihe political reactionism against Ameri
can principles and policy, whichlias been so rapid
ly and signally developed in the States of the
North. We do not speak now of their internal af
fairs and their conduct in tho prosecution
of the war, wherever they have shown them
selves to bo staunch followers of a lawless
despotism, for the destruction of the liberty of
others. It is the total change in foreign con
nections and foreign policy generally, which tes
titles to the radical change to which they have
subjected the character of their own Government
If there were two principles more than any other
emphatically settled as the rule for administration
in tho United States when it was a republican gov
ernment, they were these r That the sympathies or
America are always duo to tho liberal governments
abroad, and especially to thoso which have, or are
struggling for, constitutional forms, and that the
systsm liere is so distinct from any which exists in
Europe, that whatever oursympathies may be, we
could never enter into political alliances or engage
ments which would make us component parts of
an European system, or entangle us with the rela
tions of European State a towards each other. It was
the fixed American puryose that we should be a
rebublic to ourselves, moving in our own orbit, un
der the attractive form of the harmonious parts of
our own system of republics, not to bo made tj re
volve in eccentric patlu under the constraning
force of huge bodies which need us as compensa
tions in tho effort to maintain a constantly disturb,
ed equilibrium among themselves.
Thi3 has been the traditional policy of American
Republicanism so long that it had come to ba held
. law of its nature. It seems to ba so, in fact,
-;,, i,n sudden abandonmeni at the North of
the essential doctrines of republican freedom.tbese
maxims of foreign policy were instantly repudiated
na obsolete. The Government of a Lincolnised
Union finds itself at conflict with every Govern
ment in Europe, which has madeiany proems, or
nossessei an element of progress, in constitutional
government, and is found to be a craving petitioner
for alliance with tno most unnuugaieu m uP,-
isms, and purchasing its support by the sacrifice of
csnsistency, principle and acll-respeci.
Within six month3 after the proclamation of war,-
on tho principle of eelf-government In tne faoutn,
the Government at Washington finds itself on the
point of being embroiled with the Government of
England, approaching a crisis with the Government
of France. &3. At the same time, it is devoting it
self to the propitiating of Russia, as its main reli.
ance for support in Europe, and laying down at the
feet of an absolute military autocrat the most cher
ished maxim3 of the founders, and all the trusted
statesmen of tho American Republic. Not. to en
largo on the craven abandonment, in the exigencies
of an unnatural war, of the American doctrine of
the right of privateering, as the cheap defence of
commercial nations, tha most fhgrant of the expo
snrcs of the foreign reactionary pulse cf
piv:o oaaiguvi. --, j ' iZC.
sia,in bis celebrated letter, which exalted hira to
ber the: idol of tho North. In that letter, no some
what generally and obscurely pronounces the Fed
eral concern to be "cn elmeTit," essential to the tmi.
versal political equilibrium, and appeals to "a nat
ural community of interests and sympathies; by
which two young and ascending nations should be
brought to co-operate with and help each other.
How this is understood in tho North may be-
gathered from the expended commentary given to
it by Mr. Edward Etirett, in that elaborate letter
with which he has recently glorified in and wel
comed the proffered alliance of Russia. The great
principle of a universal political equilibrium ex
pounded by Russia, Mr. Everett represents as the.
basis of the peace of Europe. In that equilibrium
the military powers of Europe need the naval pow"
er of the United States, as an essential element in
order to keep down the naval supremacy of Eng
land, lie states it thus broadly :
But while this eouilibriura is for the most part
easily sustained, by the well-balanced military"
strength of tae lour greti conrnvntai powers tlie
insular position and naval superiority of England,
with her almost boundless colonial empire, form
a disturbing element to which, within the limits of
Europe, there is not sufficient counterpoise. It has
accordingly, from the first dawn of American In
dependence, been a cardinal principle of continen.
tal politics, and eminently on tse part of Russia, to
favor the growth of the United States, as a com
mercial and naval power, wbich famished -precisely
what Europe could not afford, fx: this essential
element of the general political equilibrium." What
Mr.tCanning valued himself to much upon doing.
wnen, "to redress tne oaiaoce 01 power," aisturoea
by the French occupation of Spain, he "called into
existence." to -use nis own rather lofty expression,
" a now World in the West,'' by the recognition of
the independence of the Spanish American colonies.
has on a much larger seal; bee. done by the course
of events, for all the continental powers and tne
general equilibrium .of Europe, in the growth of
the United States.
This consideration has, at all times, had a tradi
tion -1 weight with Russia and France, and no doubt
greatly influenced tha last named government, in
the masterly policy ot tne American alliance of
1 I'J. Tne Emperor Aiexacoer now is weu aware
that if the United States are broken up into hostile
fragments, with the necessary exposure to eternal
border wars, their ioflnence in the world, as a great
integral power, wilt be senous.y impaired, ana
their weizht as counteroohe to England, for some
time, at least, lo3t "to the universal equilibrium."
The policy here recognised as Russian, and ac
cepted for the Lixcolx Government, is that the
Federal Union is a necessity to Russia as "a coun
terpoise to England" a means by which Kussia
and the other military Empires may be assisted to
keep down the influence of England on the conti
nent. It amounts to the avowal of tho desire for a
coalition with Russia, to employ the Federal powfira
of the Union, if that can ever bo restored, for the
purpose of maintaining a political system in Europe
friendly to the views of Russia, and hostile to those
of Eagland that is, despotic against representative
Government. It is in this sense that the Emperor's
language is taken by the Lincolnites,. and the pro
posed coalition of the Northern Republic with the
colossal despotism, is hailed with exultation by the
voice of the whole North.
It could net have been .expected that Tmgland
would be inattentative to these approaches of the
Liscolsized Republic and the wily despot into close
alliance with each other, on the basis of a common
resistance to British progress. The first appear
ance of the Czir'8 letter was received with a great
deal of rceentmcnt, as the proclamation of an un
friendly policy. The greedy acceptance of its over
ture, and the bold avowal of the unnatural coali
tion and itsjprlce.will not tend to soothe the natural
retentmsnt of England, at the combination, and her
disgust at the profligacy of the terms.
Why should there be any surprise, after these
developments, thatEogland armed herself in Can
ada, and is gradually preparing herself to meet the
efTecta of this animosity, which has grown into
such a eettled policy that there is scarcely an effort
to conceal it?
A Clirtpter tn thn History ot tlie Revolu

The Bowling Green correspondent of the New
Orleans Ticaywt, writing on the 1st inst , furnishes
the following interesting chapter in the political
history of Kentucky :
I have iust received, from a source known ta be
entirely reliable, another chapter in tlie history of
the revolution in tnis oiaic, wumu wiujusuiy most
fully the action of the Confederates in occupying
liolumbus, while fastening on tha Federal Govern
ment and the tory leaders here the conspiracy for
tho violation of the neutral position taken by the
State, and tho subjugation of the people, and illus
trating the character of the authorities against
which the people have at last revolted, and the po
licy that drove freemen to resistance.
Premising that the State of Kentucky through
har Legislature, her Governor, and the action of
the people in their primary assemblages and at the
polls, was committed to a neutral poeition in the
pending war, and pledged to maintain that position
against either belligerent, and that the adherents of
the Administration here msintam, as an excuse for
their conduct and treason to the South, that the oc
nf Columbus by Gen. Polk on tho Cth of
Saotember, was an invasion of the State in violation
ot our neuu-auiy, - w

Kentucky in rebellion and to suspend the mailser-

among the few Union men in mat uisinct, wuusu

the Federal armies to tho same section of the Stata,
became virtuously indignant, and were for violent
measures to vindicate the neutrality of the State
against the Southern invaders. The friends of the
South, ignorant of tho facts, were, taken aback.

A Desperate .Encounter twitlx IadlanA
Scouting Party Badir Cat up.
The Houston Telegraph of the :4th publishes the
following letter from Hamilton county, on the fron
Lactasis, Ost. 24, 1S6L Editor Telegraph A
terrible conflict occurred in Hamilton county, about
torty miles, above this placs, about twilight on Sat
turday evening last, between a scout of seven or
eight citizens and a -party of Indians, twelve or
thirteen in number The scout hid stopped for the
night, when Witcher,. who had ridden some distance
from camp, was discovered by the Indians, who at
once gave chase, ani pursued him so closely that
he was compelled te abandon his horse-, and save
himself by Jcoacealment in the thick shin oak thicket.
Grundy Morris, another of the party, who was
about three-quarters 'of a mile from camp, afoot,
saw the chase, but not recognizirg Witcher, sup
posed they- were in pursuit of a beef, and giving
notice to his comrades, they were soooin tho sad
dle and after the Indians, who promptly turned
upon them and gave battle, which raged until dark
with great fury, when the scouts hsvinsr, exhausted
their fire, were'compelled to retire. Upon catting
together after the fight It was found that Robert
Carter, an old and highly esteemed citizen, was
missing. The next morning he was found dead
upon the field, his back scalp taken, and with
twenty five wounds upon his person; his horse was
lying dead near him, . An arrowpassed through tho
calf-of Morris' leg, and punctured the sweat leather
of his saddle literally pinnin7 him to it Mr,.Hurst
was shot through the side, the spike of the arrow
lodging in the spine, and 10 firmly was it embsdded
there, Drs. Ryan and Douglass inform me, that in
extracting it, the whole bady was raised before it
gave way the arrow had previously been broken
off near the spike, in an attempt to withdraw it.
Lloyd's horse' was wounded and died the next day.
To wnsends, received an arrow in thelfore shoulder
and one in the hind leg. It is supposed that several
cf the Indians were wounded, but they managed to
cling to their horses. They were subsequently
pursued into Comanche county, where they scat
tered and made good their retreat.

The Tdegraph remarks upon the above :
We have received other accounts cf Indian forays,
which led ns to believe that Pika'a great Indian
treaty is an unmitigated humbug. 'The Indians are
certainly becoming as troublesome this fall as ever,
and at least two regiments o( rangsrs will bere
quired to protect the frontier this winter.

take the folio wiag from the latt San Antonio Herald :
During the Utter part of last week a party of 25
Indians virited Atascosa county, committing serious
outrages. At S o'clock on Friday evening they
rode through tha village of Plcasanton, ia the. vi
cinity of which they killed Mr. Harrington, and
wounded Mr. Anderson and Mr. E. O'Brien, citizens
of the county. They took from Mr.Childreea about
123 head of horses including several valuable ani
mals. From Penaloza- they took 29 head. They
killed three pegroes, belonging to Marcellus French,
who is in the Confederate army in Virginia.
Mr. Wallace, as we are informed, a citizja of At

and at last accounts he was but eight hours behind
them. Thirteen of Mr. Childress' horses were re
covered on the trail. Upon being Informed of the
