Political. The Kansas Outrages--Interview of the

Kansas Committee with President Pierce--Opinions of the President, &c.
A number of "Kansas shriekers," for po
litical Buncombe purposes, visited the Pres
ident lately, and -had a conversation with
t him refpectipg Kansas' affairs. Bv their

timcnts, w hich will rcceivo the concurrence

of astonishment that they promulgate ac
counts of their own discomfiture. Head

' To Iht National Kansas tiommitl-'e : The
undorsigned,' In obedienco to your instruc
tions, waited on President Pierce, on" the
30th August, and prayed his interposition
ngainst tho threatened sluvo oligarchy of
Kansas. The following is a summary of results:
VIEWS OF THE PRESIDENT.
The opinions expressed by the Executive
ore substantially as follows :
"While government has been exhausting
its constitutional powers, (which are limit
ed) to maintain order, Kansas Aid Socie-
' ' ties have been actively stirring up rebellion.
A factious spirit oniong the people of Kan
sas, respecting Institutions which they need
not havo concerned themselves about, and
which would have all como right in time,
has originated the troubles. From tho na
ture, habits and education of tho border men
it was nntural to find them excited by such
an agitation. At this crisis, tho North, in
stead of sending in armed men, Who went
about boasting of their ability to protect
themselves, should have sent in order-loving
and law-abiding citizens ; should have sent
in peace-seeking men, who would havo pro
moted concord by nmrwl ogeneies by Hi
bles, rather than by Slmrpe s rifles. Such
a course would have strengthened the hands
. of the President, inctea J of tying them up

their desitrninir and restless
I leaders, ngita-
tion would cease, and a speedy end be put
to the disorders.
The interposition of tho Executive is
claimed by both sides, each party urging
ogainst tho other exactly the same charge.
At this distance from the scene of strife the
President cannot determine between them.
His action must be guided by official reports.
General Smith communicates a very differ
ent condition of things from the exaggera
ted statements which have gone abroad.
No apprehensions of an armed invasion need
.. be entertained. But. should it happen, the
is whole power of tho Government will be ex
jk.erted to repel it, come from ichutcvtr sourct
l may. The army in Kansas is not there
f0Co V prevent or correct outrages unless they
8r0urinount to invasion or insurrection. The
thf civil power alone is compcierit to this.
Application should to made there. Gen.
Smith had no power to redress the wrongs
of Mr. Strawn. Ho applied to the wrong
quarter. He should have gone to tho courts.
As to granting him an escort, 'Gcn. Smiih
ihoughtif Mr. Strawn was smart enough to
find nis way safely to him without one, he
ouglit to be able to find his way back ! "
The courts are open to all classes of citizens
without distinction. ' No authentic informa
tion has ever reached the Executive of an
individual who has ever sought a redress of
wrongs at the hand3 or the civil power in
Kansas, and failed to obtain it. If ono such
case had been presented, he would at once
have removed the offending official. If the
majority of the people in Kansas had want
ed peace and quiet, they could have had it.
The way to get it was for the settlers
among themselves to frown down all agita
tion growing out of differences of opinion as
to local institutions. The Executive had
always ft It solicitous about the. territory,
and had exerted his constitutional powers
to their full extent to preserve order. The
affair at Lawrence Lad given bim great
anxiety, and he at that time telegraphed
both to Col. Sumner and Gov. Shannon,
besides sending a special messenger. (Here
the-President produced copies of his tele
graphic dispatches, which, we believe, were
made public at the time.) ; Thft outrages
at Lawrence Were not done bv authority.
The Pres't admits that mistakes have been
made, as is evident by his removol of Shan-
- non.- But an'impartialman has gone there,
- who will see jjstioe done to both parties.
. If he should catch either party in acts of vi-
- olertce, they ihall be hung up on the spot.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESIDENT.
1. That Government hag not tlie power
to protect emigrants cn routo for the terri
tory, because of the jurisdiction of the States,
consequently, outrages committed on the
highways of the Dution can only be redress
ed by the Courts of the respective States
on whose soil such outrages were committed.
'2. lhat Government has no power to
prevent or redress outrages committed with
in the Territory, except through the civil
arm, or by martial law. .
3. That the military , can only aid
the civil power as a posse comiiatus: consa-
4. : Government having- provided, a legal
mode of redress for the settlors. and strength-
oned it by a posse at all times avi ilnble, the
mint is with the settlers where they have
fuiled to get it, either becauso thev were
not Iaw-abidinc citizens, or because thev
made application to the military, wliuh was
tho wrong source from whence to seek it.
5. That tho mcro possession of arms by
emigrants entering the Territory is not pri
ma facie evidence of threatcued invasion,
aim timt the mere possession of arms by set
tiers within the Territory is not prima fac'u
evidence otthreatencd insurrection that tho
bearing of arms is a Constitutional vrtvil
tgt which distinguishes American citizens ;
and that ev(n Government ilulf has no ri'ii,
under such circumstances, to disarm them.
Such, gentloiuen of tho National Kansas
Committee, is tho substance of our inter
view with President Pierce. Tho duty of
commenting on tho fuels here stated we

The attempt opposition to

Jackson had not confidence in the honor and
political integrity of James Buchanan, who
was one of the pillars of his administration,
and who rcccivci' from tho old hero the most
substantial proofs of his confidence in the
shape of hinh appointments, has had the ef
fect of drawing out on important historical
disclosure. Jud"C Catron, of tho United
States Supreme Court, has written a letter,
dated Nashville, September 17, 1836, in
which he states that, in 1814, beforo the
meeting of tho Baltimore Democratic Con
vention of that year, General Armstrong,
himself and several other gentlemen, dele
gates to that body, had a cuiivcrsation with
General Jackson as to tho proper person to

I am, of course, as yon know, politically
disfranchised : but till in sentiments, in
conviction, I am a DISUNION ABOLI
TIONIST, AND I REPUDIATE THE CON
STITUTION OF THIS COUNTRY, for.
thin H, stronger reasons than my frit-nils cere
lias given. Yet I wish John Charles Fremont
elected. If I had no other reason, the dim
pie fact that the South hates him would be
a reason w hy I should suspect him to be an
honest man. But it is not because the South
hates him it is becauso I believe he lutes

Spanish proverb which is a pretty good test
of character. "Tell me the company you

Would you infer from this that all the
Abolitionists and Disuniouisti were rallying
around the standard of the Constitution, the

To show the rank infidelity bf the Repub

cassionally the blasphemous sayings of some
of its leading spirits. We do not say that
all. or even a majority of those who fisht un

tured with such sentiments, but we arc per
fectly safe in saying'tlfat most of those who
direct the movements of the party, including
Greeley himfelf, are worse infidels than Torn
Payne and equally bold in avowing their in
famous doctrines'. ; They belong to the same
class of infidels who flourished during the
French revolution the men who renounced
God and renounced anil.rorshipped the God

Rev. Theodore Parker says:
"I do not believe in the miraculous origin

nor even Jesus of Nazareth for my master.
lie is my best histoiical dial of human great;

men without sin exist only in the dreams of

In commenting on the above ebulition of
ltev. Pttiker, Loyd Garrison uses the follow
ing startling .language;
"I have carefully looked over my last arti

extract. I said, if Got) had tTie power to

very great scoundrel.' Now, did I recognize
the existence of an infinitely holy being, and
then should speak of him in such a manner.
you might call it profanity; but as I believe
in no God, my statement amounts fcimply to
Any being whatever, having the power to
strike the chains from the limbs of the slave,
and should refuse to exercise it, is a scoundrel
I should have sa id devil. And if there is
man, not a fiend in human shape, whd
does no' respond to this sentiment it is be
cause his nunnnity is swallowed up in his
'theology.' No doubt you would argue with
me, that the man who will not do all in his
power for the abolition of slavery, has more
of the devilish than of the divine in his na
tore; but God may be deaf to the Cry of de
spair, may even command his serviles to rob,
ravish and murder, as did labled. .'Israel's
God,' and we must yield to this omnipotent
fiend unlimited reverence. This is one of
the pernicious effects of belief in a God. He
may do w hatever he pleases.whetlier it be right
or wrong, angelic or devilish, and it is Tight

Justice is no recognized. Right, justice,
truth, are arbitrary affairs not the present
will or opinion of a changeable being now

whose word, whatever it is, recognized as
law involves a contempt for the eternal, 1m
mutablo principles of justice and truth." -
Hon. Aanson P. Burlingame is riot open
in his avowal of infidelity but no one but
an unbeliever, who ha9 no reverence for sa
