On Friday Inst, it being ascertained that
Cassivs M. ClIx, llie (ralluut and gifted
son of Kentucky, would address the Re
publicans of Fairfield aud adjoining
counties, the people, without distinction
of party or sect, turned out to see and
heat him. At an early lioui the crowd
began to pour into thy city, and contin
ued to penr in, nntil the stroats were li.e
rally flooded with people. It seemed that
the whole country had turnel out en
At half-past twelv e o'clock the crowd
formed in prooession at the Court House,
and headol by the Lancaster Brass Buud,
marohed to the depot to receive Mr. Cluy.
who arrived by th 1 o'clock trtn from
Washington. As the ears came up, the
crowd numbering tome two or three thou
sand, unable to i est ruin their enthusiasm,
boilod over. Cheer after cheer, went np(
eltout aftor shout, drowning the khrieko(
the locomotive and beggaring desripct.on.
At Mr. Clay appeared upon the plat
form of the oars the shouts ngin broke
foitb and three hourly and sluuuing oheers
were given for "Clay and Fioe Teiiiio
l ios." Tlio procession again I'm mud
proceeded by the Lancaster D.ind, ear
lisgo containing Mr. Clay aud committee,
Circlevillo Cornel Band, Logan "Wide
Aw&lcs," nnd proceeded up High sheet
to Main, down Main to the Tallmadge
House, whore Mr. Cloy had been provi
dod with comfortable (luuiers.
At 2 o'clock the niassos assembled in
the Publio Square on the Kant tide of the
Court House, when Mr. Cly was iuiro
ilucod to tbt people by Win. P. Creed,
Esq., in a nest, eloquent aud fiucible
- Mr. Clay's speech was clear, strong and
eloquent. For three hours he held his
large, audionce, numbering at hast five
thousand, spell-bound; hundreds uiiablt
to hear, bung around llie edges of tht
orowd out ol curiosity Id h the man.
With uncommon e'euru-'ss and power, Mr.
Clay laid bare the evils e',' yhtvery; show
ed how by its poisonous ouniuct it degraded
fret labor; how it IdigSteJ the energies of
a people; how it rent rained development;
bow it corrupted month; how it crushed
out freedom; how it stilled fret-doin ol
Hpeech, freedom of press, sad l'rodoiu of
eonscioncs; how it built up un oliiiri'liy
in tht South' and coucontrated political
power in their bands, and how it stripped
the laboring musses of their independence
and of tLeir civil, social, utid poliical
Mr. Clay showed the great wrongs of
slavery not with a view to encourage in
icrt'trenoo with it wheie it exists ty. v!r.
tue of locsl law and State rig It, but to
show why it ought not to be fattened up
ou Urtitoiy now fise; why it ought not to
be iccreased in political power.
Mr. Clay shewed where the fathers
stood upon the eh very quesilun; that
they weie for freedom rather than slave-
rj; for fico labor rather than sluvs labor;
that tLsy looked upon slavery as a gra
moral, social sod political wrong; a cures
alike to the oppressor and ihs oppressed:
that tliej ear'y and tartesily sought
means to lid themselves of it; that to this
end they abolished the slave trade sud
- declared all the Territories of tbt Nation
'fret forever. He showed low this ooliov
lad been changed, how step by step the
. slave power Lad advanced, until free
dom bad become a cypher.

power Ho appoint tbeir Governor, lo ap
point their Judges, and Wgarixe their
Conrii; to Appoint their Marshals and
clirks, thus stripping there of eight-ninths
of (heir soveitigoty. He ehowedhow Mr.
Doaglas by Ins speeches and his platform
had str'wkto down the one-ninth part, so
far as IV relalsd lo slavery In the Terrlto-
ries, by endoning the Dred Scott decis
ion a d by toting sgsinst Chase t propo
sition to give ti e Territorial Legislature
power to ''exclude slavery during the ter
ritorial existence." He showed how .Mr.

.e bad labored to subserve. lleir interests;
how he had effected the lepeal of the MU.
souri Compromise, thatshveiy might pos.

bis "great principle" the everlasting cures
of human bondage had "extended itself
ovrr the Territory of New Mexico," a ter-
itoiy sufficiently large to make five States

In short Mr. Clay's speech was Com
plete, bristling at every point with strong
facts and irresistible conclusions. "'

We shall not enter here into the merits
of the contests before the Committee on
Credentiils, at Baltimore. Il is suffi iout
to say that tho minority report irom that
Committee, drawn by Uovernor bteveii",
of Oregon, has never been pnblUhed in
siiy Di.uglas paper within our knowledge,
and that no attempt lo refute it has been
madu, because it is impregnable in sta'e-
mciit and argument, and clear as the so

THE AGE OF V1UTUE. No. 2.
The legitimate object in printing books
und periodicals is, to spread upon paper
the knowledge gained by man, as well rs
his thoughts, bq that others may make bis
knowledge and his thoughts theirs. This,
let it be affirmed, is the only tstional or
profitable use that can be made of took
making or journalizing. The faot then, is
at once obvious, that none but the most el
evated and pure thoughts and truths
deduoed from honest, unselfish motives;
and facts, the result of tho most careful
and rigid investigation, should be placed
upon paper. The propriety of a merciless
censorship, whioh would sweep from the
world indiscriminrtely every production
that did not cenform to some prescribed
sectarian view, is ot called lor. in all
tho affairs of life, in familiar phraseology,
the good and the evil, or vico nnd virtue
are presented together, or alternate each
other. It is notour business to argue
the necessity of evil to develop the good.
If evil be a necc&saiy attendant upon vir
tue, it will come spontaneously.. Let all
our efforts be given on the side of virtue
and the right. Constant effort in the
ri"ht direction is tho only means by which
man can elevate himself. The moment
the boatman ceases lo pull the oar, or pulls
it in the wrong direction, his bark begins
to descend the current. The "Age" will
avoid lhat(which is manifestly wrong; and
labor to direct the current of thought in
to tho pursuit of wisdom that eoduroth
for moie than A day. To fetter iho mind
or set limits to human thought will le
unhesitatingly condemned. The only av
enuo to tho exalted position which man
may altain in his earth life, is through the
unlimited exeiciss of Lis thoughts, and the
of Lis loisijninir faculties. The
"Age" therefore, will not imperatively
prescribe what ihall he written, or what
thttl be read but will hbor to direct the
way to an elevated standard of thought.
There aie many moral tales written,
whose incidents are all inside of possihili
ties, and though bearing the character of
fiction, will yet be weleome to the columns
of the "Age;"' es Hids to the end in view
Such aro the writings olT. S. Arthur and
a few others. No harsh denunciation- o
that which seems to be wrong, shall find

It must be admitted that there is just
the least possible taste of the remotest
suggestiou of variety in the doctrine of
that vole and that speech. Let us try

The Missouri Compromise had it orig

desired to preserve and perpetuate the
blessings of our glorious Union an orig

remove for ever tho only danger whioh
seemed to threaten, at ssme distant day,
to sever the social bond., of. the Union.

upon that question. I brought in the

Just sd interesting degree of varioty in
the "doctrine" of thesi two speeches may
be detected, we think, by one whose taste

As Judire Douglas, when he was here
on Thursday last, declared with strong
emphasis that as a National candidate for
the Piesideocy, he bad oo opinions lo
conceal, none but he was willing to avow
in snd part of the Union, a very respec
table citizen of this plar, who was invited
to sseat on tl.eciand with him, put into
his hands the following question, which
he was most respectfully requested loan
twer in the course of his remarks. Iho
Jutk'9 on receiving it, (it was before h
rose to speak, ) read it very attentively

"In other words:

can judge what ns well as I he not only
did not auswor the question, but very

We submit to the Louisville Democrat
whether there is not enough variety in the
