Patrick Henry's SpeeclL We bare just closed" the reading'of ,'pATEick Hxbt's celebrated speech ; ! the House of Delegates, of y irnnia, on the question of war with England..,, The grievances and condition of tne people of Kansas are very similar to those of the American colonies: at the time: the immortal Henry was promulgating the --. . . . . - ,,r T : glorious sentiment, uivz xs l.ibektx oa give me Deatu Had he been liv ing in our day instead Of the revolution, and were he occupying, a seat in our State Legislature which is about to as semble, he would, no doubt, have deliv ered himself as follows : 'This, sir. is no time for ceremony. The. question .before the house is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery. . And in proportion to the magnitude of the subject, ought to be the freedom of Via Aohtta It. w nn!v in this wav fhir. we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at this time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty to ward the majesty of Heaven, which I re vere above all earthly kings. v4Mr. President, it is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful - truth,-and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men en . gaged in a great and arduous struggle tor liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who, having eyes, see not. and havinir ears, hear not. the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation ? . For my part, what ever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am know the worst, and to' provide for it.

Is it that insidi ous smile with which our "Treaty ".has been lately received ? Tru?t it not, sir ; it will prove a snare to your fet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. 'Ak yourselves how this gracious reception of oursettlercent comports with those warlike preparations which cover our borders and darken our land.

The troubles at Easton, an account of which we gave in a-telegraph dispatch last week, did not result in any general disturbance. That part of the dispatch which represented a company from Lawrence as being on the ground,, was untrue, as we have it from a dozen disin terested cuizens, that no one went from Lawrence, whatever. The occasion of the fight was an attempt 1 made by a par ty from Leavenworth to destroy the bal lot box at Easton, where an election was being held under the Topeka consti tution. Persons were kiLed on both sides of the contending parties. Whatever opinions may be enteitained of the revolu ionary movement by pro- slavery men, and no one has denounced them more emphatically than we have, it does no good to the cause of the South, to remove the wron-r bv mobs. If we. expect the world to give a verdict in our favor, we must present our cause unstained before its tribunal. If la.vless men, who have neitl.er reputation, property, or any permanent interest at stake in Kansas, are allowed to embroil the people of the To ri ory, in murder ous foravs, inciting agitation .where the facts are not known, or misrepresented good men will not enlist their means and efforts any farther. . Let the law deal with those who violate it but never can the citizen take it in his own hands with safety the recoil is inevit able. . It is the violence of bad men on both sides, that has given to the history of Kansas, thus far, a character pain ful to patiiotic men every wheie, and itwi.l re qiure every effort to alLiy and keep in subjection the elements which menace its peace, the law and ti:e law alone mut govern, and incendiaries should be put down. We shall excue no vio lation of law, but the world will look lightly upon outiage so long as men are with impunity allowed to aggravate ajid incite to rapiue and revenge. That the attack on the ballot box at Easton was initiated and caried out by irresponj-ible and lawless men, we can not 'doubt and emph&ticaly condemn. But human nature is human nature ii .if. i . ana nowever uie ajciates oi ii-'tic or policy may deprecate it the great fact that the alleged cause of the attack oriir inated in aeit!ed,jiiaturely planned, and persisted effort to repudiate the laws and authority of the country, will go far in men's minds to lessen the enormitv, which under oinerent circumstances would have attached to the proceeding, It is an unhappy condition of things but it is too true. Let the people ot the Territory without regard to party consid er these facts. They demand instant and earnest reflection. There never was a controversy yet, where one side was entirely right and the other entirely wrong intelligent, patriotic men, can remove all the difficulties in the way of peace in Kansas. Will they act? Kan sas City Kiderprise. Public Land Matters Kansas Terri tory.

Dear Brown : I 'speeb tide like to know my 'pinion of the Kansas trubble. Wall, I'll tell you. In the fust place the old man is a letle like uncle Gid's old wheat fan arter it was all gone but fans it made too much wind for' the ballance of the 'shene. Now if the old man had cum by my house Fde told him lots of things that wo'd bin useful to him ; an' in the moruin I'de gin him a shorteued dodger what couldn't bin bete in Old Kentuck for I tell u our wimen is sum on dodger makin'. And then I'de sed to to the Guvener, "Guveuer," says I, "du u no what kinder fellers them ar' over there in the Teritory, cos if yu don't ude better change work with me an' plow com for me, an' I'll jitt step over an' set things to rights kinder." Wal, if the Guvener had 'seuted to of ier, I'de jist step'd over to uncle Gid's and a boned his old regimental coat what he wore down there in the Florida du ings, and I'de started right strate along for Kansas, an' as sure as I'd cross' d the Misury river I'd jist steped aside an' I'd pr.t on the coat jist to make me kinder prelite uid auticious like. Then I'd went rite up to Lawrence and took rooms and I'd isiiuud myproclamashun commanding thepeple and the varmints to cum lite iu to here a speech. Wal, when thade al cum I'd steped out, au' I'd looked over the crowd lor a minet; then I'd sed, "Ladies and Gentlemen," then I'd sloped an' looked ortul sory. Then I'd 'mencedagiu, and I'd told 'em of ol there sins and iransgresshuus. I'd spoke very low at fust, but I'd got lowd er and I.owder, till tinally Pd hollared, and yelled, and jumped, and pitched like a wild buiialo bull. Wal, by this time thade a thortme a rael &ixiy-no.-s power, an' thade looked onuliy bkcaied. Wal, when I'd seen um skeatedanuff I'd droped off a ieile steem au' 'ruined a more plaintiff strane, an' a dug rue iuio tiiare 'fec.ions like a craw-hsu in Uie mud. " Wal, usee the lighting wod a bin over then, fur them ar varmints wod no more dared to cum over from Misauiy than a tode wod dared to jump in a snake hole. But the Guvener leit tu big kind er to cum by, tho' Frank and ol hi j cab in tho't he wod, else thade gin him 'ttructious afore he left, as Ty;er did wheu he sent him to cary tiiat ar letter to Sally Ann, who was was, boss in Mexi co. Now u see fokes thinks that Tyler ellthim down to whip Sally Ann any how; but that wuintit; he sent him with the letter and the letter told' Sally Ann that if he dideut keep scarce in Tex as and fork over every tip he owed the Yankees that hede send down old Zack and Scott wi:h their wild cats and lick him till hese as smooth as a rat's tale in a sope barrel So u see ol that al the Guv ener had to du was to giv Sally Ann the letter, and if JSally Ana turned a cherry red to leve fur hum an' lell John, which he did. But the way them ar red skins sarved the Guvener . wornt rite; fur hede hardly got iti Mexico when them ar var mints rcbed him of ol his nvmey and backer and then went off larhn and left him standing in the rode bear-he ided, in the offulest hot sun in ol creashun. When I hern it I was so mad I hollered and jumped fur. an 'our; then 1 kinder cooled ,orf, but it makes roe feel kinder pepery yet.

Tta Assault upon Rer. Wia. C. Clark by tne Border KuSaos. - S. Euot, Mae, Jan. 17, 1856.; v Fbhdcd BrowsSir : This " is the fourth attempt that I have made to reach you with the account of my voyage with tne Aigennes oi America on, the roiar Star. I wrote and sent you' a long and full account the first thing I did after I was able to sit up. I should write more, but the hope of this ; ever reaching you seems so small that 1 am almost discour aged in trying. ; Yours Truly, , ' .. , WA1. C. CLARK. The above, . with the following slip from an Eastern journal,, is the first dir red communication we have received from Mr. Clark since he left this c;ty in September last, for New England. Ed. Herald or Fresdom. Messrs. Editors : Some of the pub lic journals, for a few weeks last past, have been presenting to their readers a part of the history of a personal out rage which 1 received from a company of Missourian slaveholders on the 20th of September, on the Missouri river. Unfortunately for , myself, I was taken sick a few days after my arrival in New England, and have thus been prevented giving the public a full account of the affair, as far as I understand it. After having traveled for seven weeks in Kansas, and having witnessed the richness of its soil, the abundance and purity of its water, the . unequalled beau ty of its scenery, with other advantages,' superior to those of an)r other portion of America, if not of the world, and hav ing accomplished the object for which I went out, 1 turned my course homeward. I arrived in Kansas City on the 18th of September, and the same day took pas sage on the steamboat Polar Star for St. Louis. I soon perceived that among the crowd of passengers on board the ques tion of liberty or slavery in Kaneas Ter ritory was one of deep iuierest and much conversation. The passengers being mostly from slave States, the reader can readily judge oft which side their sym pathies were. ' I heard several state ments made, of "the sayings and doings of the Free State party in Kansas, which I knew were not true, yet, not wishing to have a controversy, I let . them pass without correction. On the second day of the passage, in the afternoon, as a company werej by chance sitting togeth er in the cabin, some one brought up some iheoh4rkal questions for discus sion. I think the first was' the modes of baptism j the 'next the perseverance of l ' . TV. ...1, me saints, cue. rinauy one geuueujau present objected to the divine authentic ity of the Bible, on the ground that the five races of inen never could have had one common parentage, objecting espe cially to the Indian and Negro races. Feeling an interest when 1 hear the Scrip tures assailed, I took the liberty to reply to him, giving my views of the origin of the Indians found on this' continent by Columbus, which seemed to be satisfac tory to those present. His objection to the common origin of the ftegro race was, that their minds hal not a capacity for cultivation, and by nature were al most destitute of intelligence; and hence he thought they must have had another and inferior ori -in. I called his a'ttMition to Hannibal the Great, who for years was the terror of Home and the aJmiration of the world, he having been of Negio decent, and not of Phenician as mo-t of theCarihngenians were ; al so to Hamilcar.'the great mechanic to Euclid, the fa. her of mathematics with some other illustrious minds that belong ed tor that oppressed race. The above defence of the Bible gave rise to suspicions in the company that I held anti-larery sentiments. . When questioned upon this point (I have too much frankness in mynature, as well as respect for the honest views I hold, to dissemble on a plain point,) I frankly admitted that I was 'opposed to me' ex tension of slavery, and in favor of Kan sas becoming a Free S ate. One of the company, sUiriing forward from his seat, with an earnest expression of counten ance, a-ked me if 1 did not believe the Bible sanctioned slavery. Why, said he, good old father Abraham held slaves, and God never rebuked him for it. Without stopping to explain the differ ence between ancient servants and mod ern slaves, I then told him that Abra ham ha.l a son Ishmael by his wife's servant-maid, and that the Lord never rebuked him for that, eisher; and that David, a man after God's own heart, had a number of vices which were hardly condemned under the dispensations of his lime ; but when the light of Christ ianity shone more brightly , upon the world, wherever it went, servitude, poly gamy, tkc., were swept away, being suit ed only to the dark ages. I also called his attention to the important fact that for two hundred' and-fifty years after Christ, wherever Christianity was receiv ed the reLiiijn batween master and slave ce;ised, and they were brethren: - They offered no further Scripture arguments in favor of the patriarchal '.institution; and the conversation touk a political turn; the doings of various public men, the repeal of the Missouri compromise, fcc, were discussed, apparently with the best humor. J As the compmy were about to disperse, I learned that, some of them were members of that body of Solons which had been in session at'the Shaw nee Mission, rfc-enacting Draco's bloody code for the benefit of ihe people of Kan sas. Knowing the feelings of that body toward all Free Siate men, and knowing how several innocent men of anti-slavery views had tared, I felt some fears, which were increased by observing that I was pointed out by members of ; the circle to other passengers. - Not wihiug: to be come an object of notice, 1 retired to my state-room, to read,' and to let the; inter est pass oi : .' . ' .' J uat a j the stewards were lighting the cabin for die evening, I went out of my room to write a business letter lor Kan sas. v nue writing, three men seaiea themselves by me, referred in very flat tering terms to the discussion of ihe af ternoon, and gavei me an invitation to lecture that .evening before the passen gers, on Uke same ' subject, viz : J tlie probable origin of the Indians, the capa city of the negro miutl 'for .. improve- csct, sad my religious and political views of slavery. , Seeing at a glance the impropriety oi sncn a svep, iuougu re- atediy urged, I positively re rosea, ad I been induced to lecture, a Mis sourian prison would probably have been my doom, as a preacher of insurrection among slaves'; for I learned that some of the stewards on board were slaves. One passenger said, in St. Louis, if they could have got the lecture out of the -; Yankee, they would have; tied him. The evening passed quietly, to all appearance, isext morning, caving w resign my seat at the breaktast table 10 a lady, I walked out of the cabin, on the fore deck," where some twenty or thirty were discussing the affairs of Kansas, Gov. Reeder's course, &c . After seve ral had given their opinions of there suit of Uie Governor's course, I observed that the safest way would be to wait and see what the result would be. Immedi a:ely a man, who had been looking in tently at me, to wlu m I had not spoken during the passage, asked me what I said. As a matter of courtesy, I repeated my words, on which he gave me a blow on my face with his list. Almost at the same instant, a person behind me gave me a blow ia my side with a slung shot, almost depriving me of the power of breathing or of seli-defence, and during this time of my helplessness my assail ant improved the opportunity of beating my face in the most brutal manner. A host of demons," let forth from Milton's hell, could hardly equal in spirit and lan guage, those choice spiiits which were present, as they yelled "Kill the Yankee I the abolition son of a !" I stepped back between the chimney and cabin, so as' not t be favor ed with a dirk in my back, when the cap tain of the boat appeared, and, refusing to hear any explanation, ordered me to go to my state-room, and be ready to leave the boat at Providence, the next village below. As I was doomed to quit the boat, and not having had my break fast, I stepped from my sia'eroom to the table for a cup of coffee,' where I was again assailed. An attempt was madV to strike me with a chair, which I seized with my hands, and in the 'contest the chair was broken in pieces. Thecapiain now came again, restored order, and re newed his command for me to be ready to leavei still i-ei usingto hear any expla nation. A moment's reflection convinced me that it would be unsafe for me to land at Providence, with the marks of violence on my face, as slaves and their masters would be there in great numbers to ship and receive freight; and it was probable that the cry of "abolition Yankee" would follow me from the boat. We were then at a woodyard, taking in wood for the boat's use. I took my valise aud coat and started for the shore; not knowing what might come next. As no house was in sight, I took a road, or path, wind ing along the bank of the liver, and soii reached a. log house. Calling at the door, I frankly told thft man who 1 was, what had happened, &c. lie welcomed me to such conveniences as he had, bid ding me stay as !o! g as I wihed iOW, oieSMrs. IJltors, since 1 Was six - teen vear.s of age, I have mingled with almost all classes of society, f.ora the pi- , , , , , . .
