Sentiments of S. A. Douglas.
- Mr. Douglas mnde a speech at Chicago
tbe other day, in the Republican Wigwam,
. which has been rechrisloned "National Hall,"
' in the course of which ho said :
I have struggled long for a peaceful solu
tiyn of the difficulty. 1 have not only ten-
' dared those Slate what was theirs of right,
but I have gone to the very extreme of mag
nanity. The return we receive is war, ar
mies marching upon our Capitol, obstruct
ions and dangers to our navigation, loiters
of marque to invito pirates to prey upon our
commerce, a coooorted movement to blot
out the United States of America from the
map of tbe globe. The question is, are wo
to maintain tbe country of our fathers, or
How it to be stricken down by those who,
when they can no longer govern, threaten
Th tlavery question it a mere excuse.
The election of Lincoln it a were pretest.
Tbe present secession movement is the re
sult of an enormous conspiracy formed more
than a year since, formed by leaders in the
Southern Confederacy more than twelve
months ago. Thank God, Illinois is not
divided on tbe question. (Cheers.) I know
tbey expected to present , a united South
against a divided North. They hoped, in
the Northern States, party questions would
bring civil war between Democrats and
Republicans, when the South would step
iu with her cohorts, aid one party to conquer
the other, and then make easy prey of tbe
victors. Tbeir scheme was carnage and
civil war in the North. There is but one
way to defeat this. In Illinois it is being
m defeated by closing up the ranks. War
will thus be prevenetd on our own soil.
Where there was a hope of peace I was
ready for any reasonable sacrifice or com
promise to maintain it. But when the
question comes of war in tbe cotton fields
of the South or tbe corn fields of Illinois, I
say the farther off the better.
Mian aq i and Ririiim--The Hon. Schuyler
Colfax reports the following message from the
rebels and s prompt repartee in the St. Joseph
The Harper' Ferry aoldiera sent word to
Washington by travelers, that they hoped the
Massachusetts troops would be sent there against
them, and, if to, they would make the Potomac
smell of codfish for the next six months.
Some of the Massachusetts Fifth, who heard of
this, sent word back, if (ten. Scott would allow
them to go there, they would guarantee that the
Potomac should taste of tobacco and whitiky for
the remainder of the year.
Appropriate and Just.
New York Tribune says: "On Monday morning
two excellent photographic likenesses of the
President of the Southern Confederacy and ex
President Buchanan a Secretary of War were
placed in the Rogue's Gallery, at Police Head
quarters. At the bottom of the likenesses is
written 'Jefferson Davie, the Traitor,' and 'John
B. Floyd, the Robber.' M
Romance of the Nunnery.
A Belgian journal, La Productour de
Lonre, has the following:
Some time ago a young woman named
Baudry, bulongmg to a respectable family
in the town, became a nun, under tbe name
of Sister Theresa, in the convent of Haot
rnge, near Mens. During the last two
years the members of her family, though
they called repeatedly at the convent,' wore
not allowed to see her. Recently the Tu
mor was spread that Sister Theresa was
sequestered and ill-treated, and, on bearing
of it, bcr brother aud sister, accompanied
by a medical man and jug de pais of the
district, went to the convent and peremp
torily demanded to bo allowed to see her.
This domand evidently caused a certain
consternation among the inmates of the
convent; but after some delay tbey were
admitted to the cell of their sister, ; To
their painful surprise they found bor wast
ed to a skeleton, and having the Appear
ance, though young, of quite an aged per
son. She was crouching in a corner of the
cell, as if in stale of great suffering. She
stated that she had long been kept without
sufficient food ; she said also, that her bed
ding and her room had been dreadfully
dirty, but that, ou the arrival of tbe visitors,
the former had boon hastily changed and
the latter cleared out. The Superior, of
the convent alleged that the woman was
mad, but she answered with perfect intelli
gence all the questions put to her. She
whs at once removed, and sent maisou de
i tanta, and the authorities of tbe district
have commenced an investigation into the
affair. . ; ....
Condition of Southwestern Virginia.
While Western Virginia north of the
Great Kanawha is thoroughly Union, the
people of the Southwestern cornerof ' the
State, between that river and North Caro
lina, are almost as rabid secessionists as the
inhabitant of the sea coast. The Wheel
ing Intelligencer publishes a letter from a
resident of Washington county, who says:
In this part of the commonwealth, but
one opinion is now tolerated. Please give
me a line informing me whether you are
secure in your Union position in the North
west. I can not write to you with freedom,
for reasons that you will understand.
Tbe intolerance of our revolutionary leaders
equals that of the French Revolution. - The
violent few rule the order-loving many. I
am a slaveholder, and identified : will the
South by both interest and affection. ' My
children aro Southerners "to the manor
born." 'Yet if I had voted against the
Ordinance of Damnation, I should to-day
be an exile or a corpse. Tbe vote through
out tbe State is worse than mockery; it is
The Federal Troops.
Tbe Richmond Examiner, of May 81st,
has this choice bit of description of the
"Take them all in all, their forces are as
precious set of rascals as could be scraped
together with fine tooth comb from the
pot-houses ' and hell-holes of the ' North.
Tbey have been fertilized by flth and grown
up, fresh and 'uomitlgatedly wretched from
the mire of municipal corruption."
AxoTHim NrwWoaD. The Boston Post says:
"The prevslenee of patriotism at the north, in its
entire ignoring of partisanship and politics, sug
gests the coining of a new word for Its proper
expreasiion, vis: UniotnaUTT."
What Secession Has Done in Texas.
Extract of a letter received from oiatv-

unfortunate as well as., unpopular. The
Oregon Argus states that Geiv; Lane bad
accidentally shot himself near hi TeaieUncs
in Douglas county. The ball entered 'the
lower part of the breast and came ut of
the shoulder. The wound was not consid
ered mortal. , .. .i . ...
Suffering at Norfolk.
The New York Herald says: . ..
There ia no doubt but that the people of
Norfolk and soldiers encamped there-are
suffering for want of the Cora moo necessa
ries of life. . In ce-Bsequeote -of the drought,
tbe springs have dried Vpj'sad the) ekternt

exception of garden ' truck- they bare rery
