By order of Mayor 8qnidge, the habi
tation of our.-slave population has been
searched, and all incendiary implements,
documents, and combustibles have been
removed. His habitation was a loft over
a stable, and all the furniture was an arm?
ful of straw, a three legged atool, and a
fish-pole.. General. Bomb L. Bee said
our slave population might use' the straw
to fire bur houses Mayor Sqnidge said,
'Burn It." The general suggested that,
with the stool our slave population 'might
knock out onr unsuspecting brains in our
innocenf-'sleep. Mayor Sqnidge said,
"Burn it The general hinted that with
the fish-pole 'onr'slave population -might
break the jaws of our lovelywive, and
with the fish linehe might hang onr prat
tling babes on lamp-posts. Mayor
8quiilge said, "By U1 means, burn 'em!"
Sothey were removed, under a strong
escort, to thepn.blie square, andburned,
our slave population kicking nphis heels
with apparent, delight he thought some
one would give him a new stool and an
other fish-pole.
So far Bnngtown has nobly stood np
for her rights and has taken care of her
own safety. What shall be thenltimate
result of all this, remains to be settled by
correspondence with Lincoln". If Lin
eoln will purchase our slave population,
and set him free ; if he will recognixe
Bnngtown as the metropolis of the conn
try, and if he will give Bungtown'men
those prominent positions. in the national
council to which thy are by right entitled,.
Oungtown will cotueut. to remain a mem
ber of the confederacv. If he will not
do these things, let him take heed to him
self on his own headcbe the awfnl con
sequences, for then the cry will be "Sa

will secess Bungtown will disune the
stars and striDss will be trailed in Bung
town mud, and the Bungtown flag (one
clam, rampant, in a sea-green field) will
wave o'er the fragments of this dissever

There is at present a" cessation of tele
graphic hostilities ; but the Bungtown
ers are awake aud stirring. As soon as
General Bomb L. Bee received the last
dispatch, from Lincoln, he called out the
railitarv'sgain and made a. speech. In
the midst of the exordium, a terrified
meisenger rode up, and gasped outj
"Strychnine poisoned -stares 1" and
then fell down in a a fit, previously thrus
ting into the .hands of the general a box
of some white substance. He had found
it concealed in one corner of(the habita
tion of our alave population. Every
body was horror struck, for everybody
thought our, slave population had receiv
ed from some bloodthirsty abolitionist
poison enough to destroy ns all. One
universal ery -of .vengeance arose against
our slave population, and a simultaneous
rush was "Tnado by our gallant soldiers
and our population upon onr slave pop
ulation. He was found curled up in a
corner of the fence, fast asleep. The
amiable propositions to, hang him and to
burn him alive were vetoed, and Mayor
Squidge' suggestion, to make him eat
tbe poison, was unanimously acceptea.
Our slave population was confronted by
Gen. Bomb L. Bee with a drawn sword,
and eompelled him to swallow, the box
of poison, oi . '
He did it without objection.
After he had done it, ha made a re
mark.. It was supposed to be his dying con
fesion, and General Bomb L. Bee
stooped over bim to hear it. It was as
follows :
"Guess de white folks all done gone
mad. Dey burn np nigger's1 fiddle and
bow, and den make him eat de roznm."
Onr slave population was right. It
was: not strychnine; it was rosin. He
was permitted to go to sleep again.-
Here ends my last dispatch from my
friend, the general ; but I Have heard
from other sources that the Bungtonians
are nrenared to secede. Theyareto.be-

Outrages in Southern Kansas. '
A correspondent of th New' York'
Times, writing from Mapleton, in this
Territory, thus describes the outrages
committed riot long since upon the Cher
okee Land settlsrs :
It is told bymany citizens that .tbe
agent manifested the spirit of a brute
throngh the whole affair. He" is said to
he a native of Georgia, and whenever-he.
was assured by any settler that he was
from a Slave State, or would prefer a
slave State to any other, he was not mo
lested and his house was passed by. Thus,
for a space of ten miles over the burnt
district thero msy be seen a house burnt
on the'left, one saved on the right one
burnt here, another left there, as if all pow
er was in the agent's hands to save or de
stroy. One incident is related that must
be embalmed. I beard the, same from at
least ten different gentlemen, and the facts
will be sworn to if desired. An old gen
tleman with a large family had ( watched
the progress of these incendiaries throngh
the day, ana tney naa approacnea near
his own house before encamping for the
fent- .. "'"",:', .,
In the evening he walked over to the
camp and tried to prevail on the colonel
to spare his house and home, as he was a
poor man without it, but with it he was
in good circumstances. The colonel was
cold and crnsty towards him, and gruffly
replied that he would have a visit in the
The man returned home, sad and de
jected. Sleep afforded him little conso
lation that night, but be talked over with
his wife the misfortunes they were about
to share. He suspected ;tha cause of dis
criminations made in favor of certain fm--
ilies previously, and resolved to try the
experiment rather than submit willingly
to the Federal ordeal. In the morning
he called upon the agent and renewed his
'Where were yon from when yon came
to Kansas T" inquired the colonel.
"From Missouri," was the answer.
"Where shall you 'go to if yon are
driven out ?"
"To Arkansas, down on Soldier Creek."
"Have yon friends living there?"
"Yes, all the friends I have anywhere
are down there."
"Well. Sir you had better go hack
home, and I'll come along there soon,
and we'll talk the matter over but
you need not pnt out your things until I
The man went home, hut he found that
his' wife in her alarm had earned out all
the fnrnitnre before' his return. Ho let
if remain, however, and in due time the
Colonel and his posse came along.
"Well,"say the Colonel, "what is
all this for ? I told yon not to get yonr
things out till I came."
"I know yon did. but, my wife had.
them all out before! got back."
"It's no matter ; just get in and ride
with me a little ways, and we'll talk the
matter over."
He did so ; and, after a very social
chat, the colonel remarked, among other
things : "Now, if these people had all
Seen of vour irrit. ther would not be
driven out."
"Just so," was the reply.
They soon, parted ; the house was not
molested, and, his . farniture soon. stood
u firm as before. The best of the story
Ti. the man was from Wisconsin, and
his relatives are living in Canada : but
he wanted to prove the sincerity of this
J. B. decree, and he had done so. I
was slow, to believe all thisuntil I had
evidence unmistakable.
Another instance is given where they

DECEMBER 20, i860,
'Another etory is told of the agent, that
seems in keeping with his other acta. The
Oiage Indians, situated farther west,
have a similar tract, of land, on which
the, whites have settled to some extent.
The same instructions have been issued
to the agents of the respective tribes.
The Osage agent c wonld not moleat the
inhabitants .on their land, .and when Col.
Cowan ascertained this, he volunteered
to put them all off, on condition that he
could have the full pay for doing it.
Money, then, has something to do with
this outrage, on the part of the agent,
but on the part of the Government there
is another motive, no lass infamous.
In conversation with a very worthy gen
tleman, Col. Cowan remarked that if the
inhabitants now on tho neutral lands
would consent to make the northern lim
its of those lands the southern boundary
of, Kansas; and also if the people of
Kansas would consent to the. same boun
dary, they might all go back and stay
on1 their farms, and he wonld not molest
them thus making his own edict supe
rior to a law of Congress.
Precisely here is the whole cause" in. a
nrit-sheli. Slavery "is "warring against
free territory on every side: Kansas has
conquered a peace, still the South now
seeks to wrench from ns a strip of our
consecrated soil, under' the subterfuge of
an Indian treaty. They want it to go
with an Indian Territory on the Booth,
where Slavery already exists, and seem
to think that if our Territorial officials
will'ssnction tha scheme tha't the sover
eigns will give up the contest. It may
prove unfortunate that their slight ac
quaintance with the people of Kansas has
led. them into this delusion. We want
no bettor evidence that this grand design
moves' the whole mashinery. Senator
Green's speech last spring told ns as
much, but less openly. The irrepressi
ble siens from many of the Sonthern
Statesarapointing at the same'resnlu
Well', if they are not done with Kansas
yet, it is time to know, it.. One thing
may be relied on. After all the other in.
salts and approbrium the oligarchy has
sought to inflict upon ns, we shall not
quietly permit our State to be dismem
bered to aggrandise the South.
Democratic Dirge Away
The following is from the Fonda
Y.) Democrat :
There is a blessed country a little be
yond Borriboola Gha. The wicked Re
publicans cease from troubling there, and
weary Democrats are at rest. An anti
quated Dobbin, whose bones ought to be
picked as clean as those of Democracy,
(in "charity for Dobbin wa say it,) drags
an antiquated boat, every four years, to
that' country, and the boat is laden with
disappointed office seekers, voters, cold
victual, and country editors. It may.
be that tho cause of the voyagers was
right ; but a generation of wipers defea
ted it. It may be that they look with
sorrow on their venerable uncle, Samuel,
saying, with no intention of irreverence,
"How often would we have gathered our
selves under your wing, O, old boy, and
yon wouldn't do It."
We are bound for the political Dixie.
Dobbin is fastened to the forward end of

A Short Sermon by Capt. Montgomery.
My brethren, let me here, once for all,

Text : Luke, 10th chapter, beginning
at the 25th verse. "A certain lawyer,
tempting him, said, Master, what good
must I do to inherit: eternal life f And
he said,, How readest thou ? Which is
the greatest commandment? And he
said, Thou shaltlove the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with
all thy mind, and with all thy strength,
and thy neighbor as thyself. Thon hast
answered well. This do and thon shalt
live. Bat he, being willing to justify
himself, said, Who is my neighbor?
"A certain man iourneying from Jeru
salem to Jericho fell among thieves, who
stripped him, leaving him naif dead.
And a certain priest chaneed to pass that
wy. who when lie saw him, passed by
on the other tide. And also a Levite,
when he saw bim, looked on him and
passed by on the other aide. .But a cer
tain Samaritan, when ho saw him bad
compassion on him, and bound np hi
wounds, &c.
"Now, which of these threesayest thou,
was neighbor to him that fell among
thievos ?"
And ho said, "He that had compassion
on him." 'Thou hast well said. Go
and do likewise 1' "
The text, bsing long, is not fully quo
ted. The question asked by the lawyer i
one that concerns ns all. "What good
mnst I do to inherit eternal life ?"
The answer teaches tha nature of true
religion ; that it is something to be done.
A system of active benevolence. In a
word, it is tfotn right ; and "he that tfo
eth right it righttous."
It is that system which is illustrated
by the Goldon Rnle; whatsoever ye
would that men should do nnto you, that
do ve even so unto them.

This do ana thou snait live ; ana in
ooiw right wp will allMi right.
The Savior savs a certain man ; not a
certain Jew, nor a certain uhitt man
bnt a certain man. Nothing said about
his nationality, or his color.
To inherit eternal life, then, we must
love God and love our fellow man ; onr
brother. "For if a man say he loves
God, and loves not his brother, he is a
liar;" and "all liars have their part in
the lake that burns with fire and brim
stone ;. which is the ttcond death, the op
posite" of eternal life.
All this is very plain; but doe love
to man, or in other words, compassion
on him, require us'to harbor and protect
fugitives 7 xes.

The Sonthern Grievance.
, .Whoever wades through the columns,
of Southern diatribes against the North,
which wo daily publish, and the still
denser columns thereof furnished by some
of our cotemporaries, mnst perceive that
the master grievance therein heaped npon
ns is our deficient alacrity in catching,
and returning runaway slaves. Of course,
the especial target of malediction is North
ern legislation against kidnapping; bnt
that is merely a casual exhibition, nnder
the spnr of the Fugitive Slave act and of
the Nebraska bill, of tha invincible North
em repugnance to playing tho part of
blood-hound on the track of a frightened
and flying woman, who, having had
three or four of her children torn from
her and sold to Mississippi or Texas, is
flying to save the last of her brood from
a fete mora abhorred than death. We
repeat that the gravamen of the offense is
Northern' repugnance to slave-catching,
tbe particular manifestation givon to that
repugnance being accidental and inconse
quent. The vital, honest, naked truth is,
that the mass of the people of the Frco
States never did heartily co-oporata in
negro catching, and never will. Had
they been inclined to do so, tho original
Fugitive law of 1798 would have answer
ed every purpose; since they were not
and are not, the act of ltioU, savago as it
is, amounts practically to very little. Of
the fugitive slaves who manage to cross
Mason and Dixon's line, nine-Untha gat
afely to Canada if they really try, as they
always did and always will. All tbe
State anti-kidnapping laws have not add
ed a dozen to the number who. have thus
made good their flight; and if they were
all repealed to-morrow, the Sonth would
not he profited one stiver. If a fugitive
chooses to hang about our cities from
month to month, hi master, if he earnest
ly tries, can often hear of him and recov
er him: but u he makes a itraigbt pull
for Canada, he is almost oertain to get
away; because nearly or quite all of oa
are anxious that he should. Now and
then some poor tool of a Rynders or De
Angelis will embark heartily in tho wort:
of elava-catching for the sake of tha mon
ey to be made by it ; but there is no man
reared in a Free State, and gaining his
livelihood by any form of honest industry,
who does not feel an intense loathing of
the whole business of slave catching, and
say of it, with Haxasl, "Is thy servant a
dog that he shonld tlo this thing 1" The
very dry goods jobber who declaims
againit Personal Liberty acta would
loathe himself if he were to join in hunt
ing a fugitive, and would feel a sense oft
relief and gladness if that fugitive were to
get safely off to Canada.
Southern politicians uo not compre-
hand this at least, they persist in talk
ine as thonjtb thoy did not. They recog
nize no difference between hunting a fu
gacious negro end hunting a strayed or
Stolen norse, anu lanoy mm ait rapugunuc.
to slave-catching is impelled by hatred
or envy of the South, or somo moral ob
liquity, whan in fact it spring directly-
Irom reverence to mat jjjtiqb law, auaa
of Nature and of Revelation, which says,
'Remember those in bond as bonnd with
thm;" (St. Paul.) "Break every yok.
and let the oppressed go free;" (Isaiah.)
"ihou snail not aeuver unto mi maiiar
the servant who has escaped from hia
master unto thee; he shall dwell with thee;
even among you, in that place which ha
shall choose in one of thy gate, where it
liksth him best; thon shalt not. oppress '
him;" (Dent, xxiii.15, 16.)
Hence wo say to thoia intent on daub
ing the crack in the Union with the nn
fjsmnered mortar of a new Oompromue.
Yon must not ignore Human Nature.
You must pay some respect to the law ot
gravitation, moral a wli a physical.
All tha Personal Liberty acta may be r-.
pealed forthwith that is a small matter
and you may make ever so solemn a nw
bargain for the capture and restoration
of fugitive slave; but the upshot will be
that not one in ten will.be caught, and af
ter a few year, not one in a hundreds
Hence will remit reproaches and crimina
tion, charges of broken compacts and
bad faith; and the South will ba more'
excited and alienated becauao of tha bar
