From tho Cincinnati flnzclto,

any power to legislate on the
Slavery , in tho TerritoriuM. It is not
enough that we point them to the fict thnt
tl)6 first Congress, assembled after the
adoption of the. Constitution, composed
largely of the great and good men of that
period, who made tho Constitution af
firmed and prepeluated, by positive legis
lation, tho. Ordinance of (787, which
pressly prohibited Slavery in evory fool
of territory then hel. nging to tho Gener
al Government.,-It avails nothing when
we sho w I hem that Gen. Washington, who
was President of the Convention which
framed' the. Federal Constitution, was
President ol" the fjuited Stalet at the lime
I his ordinance of freedom was IcgaJi&d
by Congressional action, and under tho
oanctiou of an oath to support that iiiBtrii
rnont, gave that law his official approval.
It is not enough that we point them to the
historical I'aot that every President, from
Washington lo Polk, recognized the pow
er of Congress to legislate on this ques
tion uy signing acts winch directly as
sumed control of ibis question. It is not'
cnotigu inaiwe csuiDiitn uio tact irom lhf
ecord, that Chief Justice John Marshall
clearly affirmed the power of Congress,
under the Constitution, to legislate on this
subject and that tho various State Courts
of most of the slaveholding States have

Government in reference to it, for more
than sixty years they yet contend that
we are wiser than' out fathers", and under
stand better than they (lie "true intent
and meaning ot the Constitution."
But what will they say if it shall ap-'
f ear,rom the record, that as late as June
1850, Senator Douglas, the min who now
denies, so vehemently, that Congress may
constitutionally touch this subject ol
Slavery, admitted that in his opinion Con
gress could pass laws excluding negro slaves
from the Territories? Tho following ox
tract from pages 1 1 1 5 snd 1116 of the
Congressional Globe for 1849-50 shows,
beyond dispute, that Senator Douglas
was once a believer in tbe doctrine that
Congress has the power .under tbe Con
stitution to prohibit slavery in the Terri
tories. The CurriproruiH bill of 1 850
was under discussion in the Senate, and
Mr. Douglas in reply to Jefferson Davia
of Mississippi, Raid: ,
, "But, eir, 1 do not bold the doctrine
tlmt to exclude any species of property by
law from a Territory, is a violation of any
right to properly ..Do you not exclud

It would soem from the above that Mr.
Douglas wai not in 1850 so much ' of a
Squatter Sovereignty as he now is, He
was ihcri willing in admit that Congress
might constitutionally prohibit tho intro
duction not only of banks and gambling
tatiUs ana whisky, but also HEORO
LA IjSj iiitothe Territories of the Uni
ted. Stritcr;.. ' .,' ,v ,.
But this is not all. Mr Douglas was
chairman of the Committee on Territories
in the House of Representatives (of (.'.on
gress) in 18-IC, and introduced the Oie
gun Bill on tho 23d of December of that
year. Th 14 th section of that bill ex
tended the principle of the Ordinacc of
17B7 over Oiegon, which expressly pro
hibited Slavery. Mr, Douglas, also Voted
for a cluso in ihat bill rthich reads us fol
lows: "All lairs passed by (he Legislative As
sembly shall Is submitted to ths Congress of
the United Stales, and if disapproved shall
He null and void!''
Mr. Douglas also reported (in Ilia Sen
ate) aji, amendment to tbe Oregon Bill
as follows: .
. "Provided, That no act of the Terri
torial Legislature shall become a law un
til approved by the Governor!'
Thus giving to the Governor an ab'o
hit), Unqualified vote, "anil enabling' him,
although appointed by the President, to
defeat the will of ihe "Fqnatter sover
eigns" of that Territory upon all ques
tions of legislative action, even if passed
unanimously by their Rfpresntatives
in the Legislative Assembly. This last
proposed amendment the House re
fused to agree to, and during tho last
hours of the session the Senate, which
had adopted i', receded from it. It is
proper io remark, to prevent misapprehen
sion, that Mr. Douglas was a member of
the House when the Oregon Bill was orig
inally introduced, but took his sunt in the
Senate before it passed that body.
We leave his fiienils to ausirer how
muoli of popular sovereignty uni mn-in
terrention pre evinced by his speech in
the fcienale in 1 8;i0, and Ins action on the
Oregon Bill in I81G' '47 and '48. . His
"gtir real pnr rineiple had not been copy
righted at the period of. which wo epnik.
But U is rot strange that the mnn who
once said "Tho Missouri Compromise lea'
stored iiislrtiinent canonized in the hearts
of the American people, and no ruthless
linnu will ever daro disturb it, and tuilv
. - --. ,
lwo .vo-i's afterwards destroyed that

hand," unasked even by the South-it is
not strange, wo repeat, that sueli a man
should change somewhat upon ihe gravo
question of die right of Congress tu leg
islate upon th question of Slavery in the

LANCASTER, OHIO, THURSDAY, AUGUST 237
Garibaldi's I'rojreM-Tbe Buttle of .He
lazo. The Government of the Dictator Gari
baldi hai caune'd the two following bulle
tins to be published:
Nahonal Camp of Mkri, July 20-
This morning at six o'clock an ox
change of musket shots took place. It
was thought at first to bean affair of out
posts, but it soon became a geneial ac
tion. The Royalists had artillery, on our
side there was none. The struggle was
terrible the Royalists being under cover,
while our men were fighling unprotected.
At ono moment the, position appeared
difficult, but at the m'sgio name of Gari
baldi, our men rushed on like lions and
carried the poeiiion, and at twenty-five
in a barrel of anchovies. Our men then
took the first gale of the fort and a bastion,
anu our Uag is floating over one lower.
Wc have a heavy loss to deplore; that
of the Royalists is enormous. The sue.
n-nder of the fort and tho entire column
is considered certain. A reinforcement,
with rifles and cannon, hasj this instant
arrived for us. The soldiers of Spadtifo
ri are retiring upon Gesso.
July II. 'Yesterday, at G A. M., tho
bittle commenced at Meluzzo, and was
not over before 8. P. M. The struggle
The field of battle,. covered with dead bod-
ies of the cnemv. and with liarrairftnf av.
ery kind, and .five guns, was at last con -
que red, amid cries-of "Uorig live talj!
'Long live Garibaldi!"
Our young men vied in enthusiasm
with the brave men ol Garibaldi's legion,
which was the first in tho combat, and the
9 - a . t ... . . '
nrsi io cnarge with tho bayonet, to storm
Melazzo, au'd alsoseiz the first and see
ond redoubt of the fortress, still pressing
the Bourbonists close with the bayonet.
Our loss has not been excessive. The
legion of Garibaldi has had a few of its
men wounded: our yountr men have also
suffered very little, but the loss of tho
continental soldiers has been considera
ble. Enormous loss, enormous damarra
has been inflicted upon the enemy, who
in flying wis driven into the rest of the
fortrees. He was pursued thither, and
the water conduits were cut off.
This mdrninjr, the 21st. Bosco Drcs-
ented himself to the Dictator, and re
quested leave to quit with the honors of
war. No, replied Garibaldi, "vou
shall leave disarmed, if you pleaso."
Kabrezzi and Interdonato have marched
to Gesso, by order of the Generalissrno.
The enemy occupying the position with
drew immediately to Messina.
The Dictator, in a cavalry engagement
nt Melnzzo, cut off wiih a blow of his sa
ber the sword arruof the Neapolitan oorps
that was pursuing him after which the
Neapolitan cavalry wero dispersed and
destroyed a just punishment of their
"Lony live Italy! Long live Victor
The Fresse publishes a letter from M.
Alexandre Dumas describing the engage
nieutnt Mplazzoof which he was an eye
witness. The following arc extracts:
At dawn on the 20th all the troops
were in movement to attack the Neapoli
tans, who had come out of tho fort and
villa;; of Melnzzo, which they occupied.
Mitlancliirii eomnisnd-d the left; Geiioial
Medici and Cofenz tho center; while the
rigiu was composed oi a lew companies
only, intended to cover thp cenlor and left
wing fronY n surprise. Garibaldi was in
the center, where the action was expect
ed to be the sharpest, The firing began
on the left from the Neapolitan' outposts,
concealed in a rced-bed halfway between
Meri and Melazzo. A quarter of an hour
later the center attacked the Neapolitan
line, and drove it from its. first position.
The right meanwhilo dislodged the Nea
politans from some houses wbioh ihoy
occupied. As the difficulties of the ground
prevented reinforoemcnts from arriving,
Doseowitn u.uuu men, turned upon the
.500 or GOO who had driven him back.
The latter were at first obliged to, retreat

the others were killed or wounded. The
gun which had done all this misohiof was
taken soon after. Then the Neapolitan
infantry opened snd gave passage to a
charge of 50 cavalry for the purpose of
retaking the piece. Colonel Donen's

REGULARITY" OF NOMINATIONS.
When all other expedients fail, we
reminded Hint the nomi
and Johnsofi is entitled
ination of DuutHas
1 to support over
rity andIhaveob -
the other for its regularity,
naUo" no 8lSn ,l0 8Uow. nor shadow
of regularity. The delegated Convention
!at Charleston had not power to adjourn
( to Baltimore distance of hundreds of
miles, in another Slate, and nearly two
months afterwards. No such thing was
ever contemplated, no such power or
discretion was delegated even by the most
r-P il-J; a
"" 'cieueu implications, a good noun
nation at Baltimore would have been en
titled to respect and support, but not on
the semblance of it. The regular Dele
gations for a large number of States were
rejected, and bogus contestants, spme of
them without pretence of resrulantv or
delegated authority, were admitted in
their places; while regular Delegations
from uumerous oilier States, because of
this outrage, withdrew, and this Dreiend-
ed regular Convention was a mere frac
tion ot one partly but not wholly filled up
with unauthorized persons front the out
side. It acted in Violation of ihe uniform
rule of Democratic National Conventions
which u had itself adopted, requiring
two-thirds to nominate, and then d'sre
garded it in making the nominations, for
fit net time, bogris Dclejratcs incluJed,
did the vote reach a two-thirds voie. Its
nominee for A'ice President was Mr.
Fitzpalrick, who declined lo accept such
a nomination, and the regulariiv of Mr.
Johnson, who now runs, as Vice-Presi-
deutwith Dou'glNfJ, eonsisis ia the re
quest of some ha!f-doz-n individuals, after
the adjournment, that he should run, , and
in which request it seems he cordially

not interlere with them. I now found it
prudent to take the advice ol some of my
neighbors, and keep inside my house.
The street past my hour,e is about the
shot test road from the Shughoor and the
Meedan, the two wjrst districts in thp
city. Soon after I went into my house

see and hear oflbe flumes and tumult and
pluoder, are very limitod. , We overhear!
a good deal ot their talk in the street, and
some of the talk of our Moslem neighbors
on the roofs.
I believe il would not have needed a
great effort on the pitrt of the Irovernment
io prevent all (his, but not the slightest
effort has yet been made. There were
soldiers in the Chrisiiuq quarter and
neighborhood; others were sent in (he eve
ning with four guns, and more ihis, morn
ing, but they have not at all interfered
with the ruffians, Yet a majority of the
miscreants aie actually women, boys and
girls.. I wuuld affirm ihat there are uot
in all more than a few hundred men say
600 mostly the lowest of (the low, and
miserbly armed. Not one in twenty has a
gun. A very large number, have only
sticks, the rust swords, pistols, daers or
axes. . Opposite my door is a sertpi stop-
fiing p.lne for them, and we cm over
year their talk;' and 1 can affirm that from'
die first, and all through, they havo had
ihe greatest dread, of the interference of
tlie soldiers, and , constantly ask one anoth
er as they rpeet, wliodie .ih.e eoldiefs in
such and such a direc.inn are stopping (he
murderers or opposing them; and this al
though during seventeen hours ths boI
dicra, have been passive. I firmly believe
tlisjt Oro huudrea, c'r at most t w"o hundred
soldiers, or armed, resolute men not sol
diers, could have put down' the insurrec
tion at the worst moment. Of course, it
would . have been easier to do so within
the first hour or two.
Tnis meager account does not give any
thing like an adequate conception of this
most horrible and most disgraceful affair;
that words could hardly do. Horses, don
keys and mules are employed . to carry
plunder, and some of the soldiers help
ihemaehes to a share. There were sev
eral thousands ol poor widows, orphans,
and other plundered and ruined refugees
here, depending on ths charity ol the
Christians for food,' shelter and clothes.
They are now burnt out ifiri. amid the
