Bold Bank Robbert. The Portland State of
Maine gives the following account of the robbery of
the Central Bank of New Brunswick:
On Sunday, June 28th, the Central Bank of New
Brunswick was robbed of a large amount of gold
and five pound notes. The amount is not stated,
but we presume from $15,000 to 20,000 in gold,
and a still larger amount in bank bills.
The robbers got into the basement of the build
tog, dug through tne masonry and got access to
the Ibck, an old fashioned one, bolted to the door
by screws. Tbey cut off the heads of the screw
bolts, and left the lock hanging in its place, and
forc-d the door. They selected their gold and bills,
and left the silver on the floor of the banking room,
apparently intending to return for it. No one con
nected with the b ink visited it from Saturday after
noon to Monday morning, so that tbey had ample
time for arrangements.
IX r. IHarcy'a Last Portrait.
Mr. Marcy appears to have died from di-iease of
the heart. De was not of an apoplectic habit, and
the suddenness of bis death the heart ceasing to
beat, while be was lying on bis couch reading a
book, which dropped upon his breast as he expired
together with the naturalness of his expression
and absence of distortion in his features, counten
ances this supposition, Although it was not gen
erally known that be was surject to heart disease,
Mr. Marcy on one occasion, during his last visit in
this city, evinced in an unmistakable manner the
symptom of the fatal disease. While baring his
photograph taken by Brady, he was requested by
the artist to stand, io order, we suppose, to corres
pond with roost of the other portraits of eminent
men io the gallery. Mr. Marcy, however, attempt
edit in vain, the palpitation of his heart requiring
bim either to sit or move about. His restlessness
was so noticeable in the effort of standing for bis
picture, that be was finally t.iken sitting in his chair
a pot-ture rather more familiar to the old min of
late years than aoj other. At all events, the like
ness itself, which is the last ever taken of the great
statesman, is perfect. 11 is garments are a little
more glossy and fresh than in the original, but the
face, the features, and what Shakespeare calls the
"visage of his mind," is there. The shrewd, wise
half smile with which, when in a jocose and amiable
mood, be would at once please and bide those of
bU friends who tried to know more of bis mind than
be chose to reveal an expression which sent the
quidnuncs of Waahington empty, but not wholly
diuHatUfied away is here caught, and perpetuated
with a grace almost beyoud the reach of art. iV.
Decision In the Habeas Corpus Case of
the United State Marshal.
The Cincinnati papers of Friday contain the fol
lowing: "Judge Leavitt, of the United States District
Court, yesterday made a long and alle decision on
the application of the eleven United States Deputy
llarvh.lU who bad been arrested and held in custo
dy by the Sheriff of Clarke county, Ohio. It is a
document which meets fully every question raised
in this extraordinary case. The riht aud authori

Judge Leavitt unhesitatingly decided that the

the community against the act of Congress relative
to fugitives, it was the duty of all good citizens to
obey the law, and it must be enforced. This duty,
the obligations imposed by the Constitution, the

another, were most eloquently dwelt upon and il
lustrated. The conclusion of the dechioo was, that the
Deputy Marshals be released from the custody of
the sheriff of Clarke county.

the free Statee, the freesoil sentiment is grad

to a marked degree, in Missouri and Kentucky,
and more recently in some portions of Virgin
ia. "Wherever the foreign element has its
widest sway, this seDtimeDt finds its strongest
expression. We Lave often referred to such
facts es these to show that,oDe of the dangers
to be apprehended from the swarms of for
eigners constantly coming into this country,
and of allowing ttem the rights of suffrage,
was that it would have the effect to strength
en the fanatical freesoil eentimeDtcf the North;
still more to unsettle the country in reference
to onr domestic institutions, aDd to give the
enemies of the South a controlling kfluence
in our affairs and government. This has been

reckless Democratic papers of the South, have
even denied it as a matter of fact. We r.ow
have it in our power to present the fact in
such form that it cannot be denied.
On the 7th inst. a Republican Convention
was held in the town of Newport, Ky., for
the purpose of nominating a candidate for
Congress. From the proceedings of that meet
ing, as published in the Cincinnati Gazette of
the 8th., we take the three following resoln
"Resolved, That the existence of Slavery in Ken
tucky is to be deeply regretted, and that, however,
much differences of opinion may exist in regard to

ciples, if applicable at borne,

of the great American Republican party, namely:
non-interference (on the part of Congress or the

These Southern Black Republicans may well
"hail with open hearts and open arms that
"surging tide of emigration that is setting in
" vpon us from the old world;" for it is through
them that their strength in the South is to
come, and it is through them that the diabol

consummated. And yet, in the face of such
overwhelming facts as these, we have a party

Walker Sustained in Kansas.
Warfare opon Walker will of course now
cease, and those presses in the country disposed to
keep up the clamor on this WaLKER-Kansas ques
tion, must direct their batteries against the admin
istration and against the Democracy of Kansas.
Gov Walker has thoien that he has acted wider in
structions from the Rresideut, and we hold that it
is unmanly to make war upon the servant when he
is pursuing the instructions of his master. We
moreover hope tbat the Presideut will give no
heed to the demands for Walker's re-call from
the Territory. Memphis Appeal.
We present the above to sho with whtt
ardor, the lately denounced course of Gov.
Walker, is now being supported. Whatever
may hereafter be said against thatoourse must be
levelled at the administration, at the President,
the "master''' and not at Walker "the servant.''''
The language of this paragraph is strong and
a propriate. It indicates precisely the rela
tion between the President and his instrument,
"mastern and "servant." Will our neighbor
of the Union and American reiterate what he
had the boldness to declare a few days ago, to
wit: " We again repeat, that while we heartily ap
prove the instructions ot the Executive, as we un
derstand them, and ai stated by Gov. Walker, in
the extract above quoted, and while we also cordi
ally approve and endorse the exposition of Mr.
Buchunan'a views, as authoritively announced by
th Washington Union, we deeply regret the
course, and repudiate, without qualification, the
policy Gov. Walker has thought proper to inaugu
rate." There is now an admirable opening present
ed for Southern democratic enterprise. The
thing is in your own hands and you can take
whichever side you like. You have repudia
ted the course of the "servant;" what have
you to say of the "master." Indeed, it is a ques
tion of some little importance to know whose
master the President is, besides Walker's.
Will you take the advice, "authoritively" given
by your colleague of the Appeal, and "repudi
ate" ,the President "without qualification,"
re-adjust and "direct your batteries against the
administration aud ugainst the democracy of
Kan-as?" We insist t hat you nhall do oue or
the other. If it shall aid 300, in coming to a
conclusion, or give you any consolation, we
will present you to some of the company, you
have in case you shall determine to "repudi

that the President was free from any comp'ic-

what the Delta says since that fact is known;
after enumerating the progress of Kansas af

"Thus stood matters when the OUT Gammon of
the Administration assumed the reins of Govern
ment. Like the Territorial Freesoil demagogues,
he saw that the Southern immigrants would carry
their point unless he could throw the weight of b:a
official and personal influence into the scale against
thvm. Slavery was virtually an institutioo ot b.an-
saH, and the Governor knew it. He. tberelore,
proceeded before it should be too late, to put
slavery out of Kansas. It we are to believe the
oft-repeated declaration of Gov. Walker, that bis
'views were well known to the President and the
Cabinet, and approved by them," then the Admin
istration, at tbo outset, knew, also, that Slavery
would be incorporated in the Kansas Constitution,
oiilcss that instrument rould be put down by the
voice of the "actual resident settlers" that is to
say, submitted for ratification to every squatter,
who might come into the Territory next Fail, and
declare his intention to become a permanent cit
izen. "Thus it is that Kansas, through the irstrumen-
tality of the Administration, promises to become
the prey of the Freesoilers. Its constitution once
submitted to the thousands who will purposely pour
in and squat upon a piece of Government land and
claim to be "actual bona fide resident settlers'' ac
cording to Gov. Walker, or 'bona fide citizens ac
cording to the official journal, will likely go down
beneath the blows of the Northern people aiuea

Shaking- in their Shoes
We notice in the Democratic organ in this
city an announcement that a banner will be
presented to a portion of the democracy of
Sumner at "Fountain Head" on the 30th of
this month, and that Gov. Johnson, Andrew
Ewing, Esq., and Col. S. R. Anderson, the
Post Master of Nashville, nro posted for speech

We republish this morning an article from
the Richmond Examiner, one of the ablest
Democratic journals in the Old Dominion, to
which we invite the attention of our Demo
cratic readers in particular. The Examiner
lias been one of the warmest supporters of the
Kanpas-Nebraska bill. Its present position i
a bitter commentary upon the Democrat
fraud and mal-administration in Kansas.
From the Charleston Courier, July 10th.
The Georgia and TIiasihippi Diinocra
cy pronounced hasty ", 'harah", aud
There can no longer be any doubt that tbePrcs
ident and bis Cabinet, in which there are four
Southern men and three Northern men, have en
dorsed the Walker treason against the South.
The official organ, the ministerial journal, bight the
Washington Union, has put forth an elaborate de
fence and justification of Gov. Walker's inaugural
address to the people ol Kansas, and rebukes the
Democratic State Conventions of Georgia and Mis
sissippi, as "hasty, harsh, and ungracious." In
one place it says "we are constrained to think
that Ihe Georgia and Mississippi democracy have
pronounced their judgment rather hastily;" and, in
another, in allusion to the action of those portions
of the democracy of the Union, it adds "with
sucb a battle, raging in his (Walker's) front, it
waa harsh and ungracious to open this fire on his
rear." We feel no doubt that the voice of the
two portions of the Southern democracy, which
have already spoken has but given expression to
the general sentiment of both the democrats and
the Old Line Whigs of the South; and that the
patriots of the South, without distinction of party,
will be ungracious enough to withdraw their confi
dence from both Mr. Buchanan and the Southern
members of his cabinet, unless speedy and ample
attonement be made for the late betrayal of South
ern Rights an interest".
It is too palpable to admit of question, that Sec;
retary Stanton and Gov. Walker, either by the
instruction or with the sanction of President Buch
anan and his Cabinet, have growfy, offensively,
and dictatorial iuterferred to render Kansas a non-slave-holding
State, by either procuring the adop
tion of a Constitution, ignoring the question of sla
very, or by encouraging popular opposition to a Pro
Slavery Constitution, and threatening its rejection
by Congress, unless submitted to the people, or
rather to the actual residents of Kansas, for ratifi
cation or rejection ; and all this accompanied with
an elaborate argument to show tbat nature has for
bidden the domestication of slavery in that region.
This we hold to be in direct violation of the great
and cardinal principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act,
which is won interference with the question of sla
very, or, in other words, "to leave the people of
Kansas perfectly free in. adopting a State Constitu
tion, to decide the question of slavery for them
selves." What freedom is left, when the Execu
tive appointees of the Secretaryship and Chief Mag
istracy of the Territory, backed by the Executive
authority of the Union, declare to the people of
Kansas that the edict of God and Nature has forbid
den the introduction of African slavery among them;
that it is their inherent, fundamental, and unaliena
ble right to give the final vote on the State Consti
tution, which their Convention may adopt, and
that, If that Convention (which it was well known
would be a pro-shvery body,) should dare to vio.
late the inherent, fundamental, and unalienable
right of the people, Congress should interpose for
its vindication, by rt jeetiog the Constitution. What
is this but Executive dictation of the niot gross,
offensive and objectionable character and its im
propriety becomes only the more flagrant, when it
U considered that the dictatorial interference in
question ia exerted iu behalf of, or as a concession
to a party, in open contumacy and rebellion against
constituted authority. We have not time, at pres
sed t, to review the special pleading of the Execu
tive and Cabinet organ ; il ia sufficient to say thai
no special pleading, however skilful, can afford even
a decent apology for such monstrous interference
with popular rights and State Rights, and for such
gross betrayal of the confidence of the South, by
the administration of its choice and its creation.

The obvious principles oi poncy wuicu ououiu
govern in the education of a territory and its erec
tion into a State, (and they were the principles ob
served in the early p-riod of the confederacy.) are
two. 1. The territory should remain, up to the
hour of its admission into the Union as a State, in
the condition of absolute waroship aud subordina
tion to JCongrefs; in order to which it is requisite
that the whole territorial organization. Executive,
Judicial, Legislative, shoull be derived directly
from the federal fountain of authority; that Legis
lation lor the territory should proceed from Con
gressonall subjects but those of police and probate;
and that legislation on these local surjects should
be entrusted, not to a territorial Legislature, elect
ed by territorial voters, but according to the early
practice, to a legislative Council composed of a
Governor and of Judges appointed by a Federal
Executive. The whole theory of the early forms
of government for the territories was, that the
emigrants into tbem were too new, transient and
unsettled, and too deeply engrossed in the extra
ordinary labor of planting their individual fortunes
in their new abode, to afford to spare the time re
quisite for the government of the State; not to
mention the loose organization of society and the
utter impossibility of making a judicious selection
of public servants, from a horde of heterogenous
strangers and adventurers. The theory was, that
no stable government could be erected before a so
ciety bad been planted and bad taken root in the
soil; before the institution of the Family had had
time to spread out us branches and by a thousand
matrimonial and social embraces and intertwinings
formed a community of consistent fabric end com
mon purpose. To expect a popular government to
flourish before the Family was founded or the first
elements of fixed Society were visible, seemed to
the early statesmen of our confederacy as idle and
vain as to expect a forest tree to grow suspended
in mid air without roots in the soil; or to expect a
boy not arrived in his teens to be endowed with
all the atributes of a matured man, such as are in
our modern day ascribed to the precocious scions
of Young America.
2. The other measure of policy which our early
ly statesmen observed towards the territories, was,
to discourage a change from the territorial condi
tion to that of the sovereign State, until the popu
lation bad arrived at a number proportionate to the
dignity of a commonwealth had approximated, for
instance, the constituency represented by each
member of the popular branch of Congress. The
effect of this conservative policy, in securing tran
quility to the territorial population, and shielding
them Irom the arts and practices of demagogues,
aspiring to new Senatorsbips and the offices and
honors of a precocious State, can readily be imagin
ed, and can be realized with a more lively apprecia
tion if we contrast the territorial history of any of
the early territories, Ohio for instance, with that of
What, but the scenes we have witnessed in Kan
sas, might have been expected from the new poli
cy, of entrusting nearly all the high functions of
government for an immense and beautitul country,
with the loose, migratory raooie 01 squatters, spec
ulators and adventurers, contemptible in number
as violent in character, who occupy that ill-starred
It is a wise and conservative principle we have
adopted, to refer the determination of the domestic
institutions of the new States to the people of the
territories in organizing their state governments ;
but we bave abused, outraged and prostituted the
principle, by allowing in our latter day. the specu
lating, rowdy rabble in the territories to conduct
popular governments of their own during the whole
iufancy of these communities, to emerge into the
condition of Slates before society is hall matured,
and thus lash themselves into such a pitch of parti
san excitement during their premature exercise of
sovereign prerogatives, as to be incapable when
about to frame their organic institutions, ot acting
with the dispassionate deliberation and judgment
essential to the work.
We of the South are cutting high, fantastic capers
over the speeches of Walker, ascribing to him the
results of radical errors committed by Congress in
the beginning, and making him the scape-goat of
sins in which the whole nation are implicated, of
which he is only the expression and embodiment.
What is the state of the case in Kansas? Before
yet the country contained a hundred residents, we
set it off bvtuetesand bounds, erected it into a ter
ritory, ordained a Legislature to be elected by pop
ular vote, referring the high functions of sovereign
ty to its prospective inhabitants, and turned over
to their hands the sectioual question which, more
than all others, convulsed the Union. Emigrants
went there indeed to settle, but the two sections of
the Union sent their volunteers there to fight on its
soil the battle of the sections, for a tune the prox
imiiy of Missouri gave us the odds and we oui-vot
ed, out-bullied and out-iought the North. As long
as the battle was between hundreds on either side,
the ascendency and the victory were with the South
But the South had not emigrants and political sol
diers to spare by the thousands, and the very troub
lev of 'Kansas kept out of and far away from its bor
ders the emigrant slaveholder having a personal
stake iu the institutioo.
The populous North in time oat-vied the South
and put a larger number of political soldiers into
the territory than tne bourn was aele to over-rial
a nee. It did more ; its emigrating foreigners
who fell no interest in politics, poured in also, iu
tent upon cheap lands and grand speculations. The
fever of politics soon began to be outstripped by
the fever of gain and tbiilt. The seal of the South
ern champions for slavery, in which they had no
personal stake, cooled t;ff apace. The Squatter
Sovereign, ahilora organ ol the "border ruthana.
was sold out to abolitionists and the proceeds in
vested in land "claima lustead of negroes. A
noted border rufhau leader went into a business
partnership uh the notorions Jim Lank. The
lion aud the Iamb lay down together. The political
soldiers of the North refusing to vote in the elec
tions ordt red by the uws of Congress, two seta of
candidal, a presetted themselves from what had
been the "prc-slavery" party, but what was now
more fi ly d-scribeU by the anti-Topeka party
Each of the two sets of candidate became vtry
"sweet" upon the free Sute voters. A the abo.
litioniats claimed the Tope ka constitution to be the
law ol the territory, though it had beeu ratified by
but 1.700 votes, the D -mocratic parly, protesting
that seventeen hundred residents of last year should
not cive law to thousands of the rerident ot this
year, proposed, as a popular eath, to aubmit the
constitution they should trams to all the ionts fide
residents. Such are ta radical issue 01 me can
vass, aud such the belter-skelter scrub-race of par-
tie, to abicb the ill-lated t ruory u given over.
The South fancies at has a party there when she
has noue; and she ia looking on at the farce and
humbug wiib anxiou concern akin to that with
which unsophisticated coadtrymen behold Peter
iunk mock auction la liroaaway.
Nothing good can come out of ibis chaos. There
is but one remedy for the trouble, and that bgin
at the begiuuiag. Judge Uoagtas na propoaea i
abolish the Territorial government ol Utah and put
that country again under the guardianship ol Con
