The Indiana Statesman and the Lafayette Conner at Lafayette, edited by W. R. Ellis, a brother of the Audi tor of State, are the perfect and willing echoes of all the vituperation and slander which appears in the Madison Courier against Hon. Jesse D. Bright and the State Sen tinel. Not another Democratic paper in the State has joined in the warfare. The Whig press generally sym pathise with Garber. This is very natural. If they aid the Garbers, the Ellisesand the Spanns to break down and destroy the influence ot Sanator Bright, to that extent tbey weaken and divide the Democratic party. A con sumatioD, with them, most devoutly to be wished for. One of these articles, which is republished in the last number of the Statesman, concludes with the following recommendation: "The best way to compromise the mat ter would be to han Bill Brown." Now we can tell these gentlemen that before they could control the Democracy of Indiana and fasten it to the tail of the abolition party, and make it shout hoxaunas to Julian and free soil, they would have to hang about fifty thou sand Democrats in addition to Bill Brown. Besides this is a law abiding community. If we are guilty of any crime worthy of death, our disinterested peers, and not M. C Garber and E. W. H. Ellis, are to be the jury. That they would take our life without crime, we have already theevidence, in their recommendation to hangus. With five thousand subscribers they cannot drive us out of the State. Their threats cannot overawe us, and now they propose the gallows as the shortest mode ot getting rid of ns. Circumstances alter Ca-e. Some time since the New York Tribune contained a vary severe article on the late democratic administration, charging them with the secret design of producing a rev olution in the island of St. Domingo, in consequence of the appointment of Benj . E. Greenes commercial agent,' taking the fact of his appointment and his subse quent acts as sufficient evidence to identify Mr. Polk and Mr. Buchanan with the scheme of revolution and annexation. Mr. Green in reply informs the Tribune that he was appointed by Gen. Taylor. To which the Tribune replies: We are glad to learn that Mr. Green was sent out by President Taylor and Secretary Clayton, and not by their Locofoco predecessors. This proves at least that tba Administration by which he was appointed was not privy to any private speculation in which he may have been engaged either annexatioual or commercial. If his appointment by Mr. Polk would have been proof that the Administration was identified with and privy to his schemes, by what rule of evidence does his appoint meat by a Whig Administration prove the reverse? The Crawfordsrille Review. This excellent democratic paper has changed hands. Messrs. Masterson and Engle retire. The paper in fu ture will be published by Snyder and Bowen.

Speaking of Garber he says: " As to the cbargAf treachery, we sincerely believe that there is more "nuine democracy this day in our neighbor's little finger than in the editor of the Sentinel's whole body."

Millions of their fellow men still held in chains ! Strange that these disinterested Philanthropists could not, in their own City of squalid poverty, hunger want, and starvation, find some objects for their charity and benevolence. In the very city of Cork and at the doors of these kind and benevolent men, are thousands of poor, miserable human beings, of their own kith and kin, in a state of absolute want and destitution; whose condition and future hopes, if they remain there, are in finitely worse than the slaves on any cotton or sugar plantation in the South. These meetings are composed ol the nabobs and aristocrats, who think they were born already booted and spurred to ride their poor and desti tute neighbors, and whilst thoy send up prayers for the slaves on this continent, on the same breeze is wafted the groans of the dying and the cries of ragged misery from their own. By millions we have rescued their poor and destitute, given them homes, happiness and freedom. '.Then famine stalked over that green isle, we sent our ships ladened with the staff of life, which we gave cheer fully, and in return our political and social institutions are derided and contemned. UTThe new Postage law went into operation yester day. The rates are now as follows: For single letters, weighing one-half ounce or under, under 3.000 miles, 3 cents ; over 3,000 miles, 6 cents. Double letters are those which weigh over onnee, and not exceeding one ounce, and are subject to double the above rates. Weekly newspapers circulate free in the county where publish ed; when sent under 50 miles the postage is 5 cents per quarter; and when over 50 ami not exceeding 300 miles, 10 cents per quarter. Transient newspapers weighing 1 ounce ami under, when sent any distance under 500 miles, have to be pre-paid, at the rate of one cent each One cent stamps, having on them the head of Franklin, printed in blue ; three cent stamps, having the head of Washington, printed in red ; and twelve cent stamps for Foreign letters, all well executed, were received at theHure at its is- s-.-ssmS; sanJ agaihtt the repeal of the Indianapolis Post Office this morning. !C7 The Democratic Mass Meeting, which assembled in Madison on yesterday, nominated the following county ticket: For Representatives -John A. Hendricks; DdlnJ Bridges. For Sheriff John Chambers. Associate Judges Nathan Robinson; Jos. Woods. CThe Brookville American rejoices that the contest in the fourth District is between Parker and Julian. The Editor says: The battle is to be between Parker and Jnlian, and July will be a hot month in that District. The contest now comes in the shape we like it. In the first place we have no fears of the result. And in the next place the Democratic party in that District will be so thoroughly scattered, destroyed, transferred and swallowed that they will never be found again, and in the approaching Presidential contest, their loss will earry the State for Fillmore or Scott, whoever may be the Whig candidate. This is distinctly understood by Whigs and discerning Democrats. Every man that votes for Geo. W.

Prom the Alexandria Gaxette.l The Union Canse. A great battle for the Union is now going on, both at the INorth and the South. In both quarters of the coun try there is disaffection and ultraisra. In both sections tru patriots have taken the field to combat prejudice; error, and fanaticism. In both divisions of the country the contest will have to Be decided on the soil where the issue was joined, and where the parties reside. At the North, disunionism rears its horrid front in the guise of opposition to the Fugitive Slave Law, and con tinued threatened aggressions upon the rights of th South. This form of quasi rebellion and treason, we have always contended, is more dangerous than any that lias yet appeared in the country. It wants the boldness and manliness of open resistance, whilst in its conse quences it undermines, not only the Government, but the tabric of society. At the South, disunionism shows itself in morbid jeal eusy and deep-rooted prejudice in complaints at some real wrongs and injuries, and in loud-momhed declama tion at many imaginary evils. It is bold-fronted and de termined in its purposes. Against this spirit of disunion, thus two-faced, and thus dangerous ; against these factions of different as pects but of one soul, the great party of the people, in favor of the Union of the States and the rights of the States, has risen up, and stands as a bulwark of protec tion anu delence. There is, however, as we have said particularly, Union parties at the North and Union parties at the Sonth. the High Priest cf Slavery, upon the altar of this pro Each of these parties has, in its own section, a great I slavery administration. Julian will outride this sea of uty to perform and great responsibilities to assume : and their leaders ought to be sustained and upheld, no matter to which of the political parlies they may have blonged, or do now belong. I be question is, shall this great, happy, glorious L nion be preserved, or shall the machinations of Abolitionists at the North, and Secession's. at the South, prevail? Upon this question, surely, mere temporary political party differences may be allowed to sink and disappear. When the Union shall have been saved, partisans may divine their movements, and renew their schemes. But first let us save the Union. Pennsylvania Whig Convention. Among the resolutions adopted by the Convention on Tuesday, (92 to 27,) one declared " that the adjustment measures of the last Congress shall be faithfully observ ed and respected by the Whigs,'' but from the' remarks f Gov. Johnston and others, it is evident that the acquies cence thus promised, is only to last until such time as a mo dification can be effected. An amendment offered bv Mr. Scott, ol Pniladelphia, " that the provisions of the Con stitution in reference to the rendition of fugitives held to service or labor, demand and shall receive from our par ty a faithful, manly, and unequivocal support," was shut out by the previous question ; yea 71, nays 48. Are we to understand that a majority of the Convention will not agree to givo a faithful, manly and unequivocal support to the provisions of the Constitution in reference to the rendition f fugitives? If so, Hsiiawlvania Whfgyiry is in a bad way. Looking at these votes, and at the tact that almost all tho Whig members ol the Lecisla- i5 enactnent which forbids the use of its prisons for the temporary lodgment of fugitive slaves when claimed by their masters and arrested under due process of law, we are compelled to believe, either that the feelinp among the Whigs of Pennsylvania on the subject of the Compromise is not what it should be, or else that, under the lead of Gov. Johnston, thev are playing :i game with "h rlew to secure the votes of the Abolitionists. Gov. j Johnston, in his speech before the Convention, sta.cd 1 that ' if the Fugitive Slave Law could be amended, or made perfect," i. e. abolitionized so as to defeat its own objects, " he would, if called upon to vote, support the amendment." He said, "the people were told not to ask the amendment for fear of disunion; but he did not think that any one Act of Congress would dissolve this Union.'' And again, " He esteemed it the duty of every man to teach his neighbor the impossibility of dis union." This is so exactly the lingo of the Sewardites of this State, that we cannot doubi there is a concert of action between the parties. They are in favor of the "essential modification " of the law, and lest there should be any misgivings about -it on the score of public policy and safety, they proclaim that the dissolution ol the Union is impossible! Can we believe that they are sincere in such declarations, at a moment when one of the original States is avowedly anxious for a Southern Confederacy, ami when all the Southern States declare that upon the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave ! Law depends the continuance ol the Union. The nomination of Gen. Scott by the Convention, in exact chorus with the Seward organs at Albany, and elsewhere, is another evidence of a foregone conclusion. All the other Whig candidates for the Presidency are avowedly in favor of the compromise as it is. But Gen. Scott is supposed to be uncommitted, and the Seward and Johnston Whigs have therefore pitched upon him as a man who, with adroit management on the part of the .-ire-pullers, may receive the votes of the Abolitionists. They are evidently shaping their course for a coalition, with that miserable faction , in the choice of Presidential electors. If the Whig party sustain this course, we hazard nothing jn sayinjr they will be whipped out of house and home. ' The Democrats will take advantage of the blunder, and elect their own candidate with a rush. Brouglrt leMiWtler such auspices, Scott will not eet the vote of a single sfaveholding State.

David Brier, whig, of Fountain county, has been nominated for Congress in the 8th district, and James Wilson, of Montgomery, for Prosecuting Attorney. Gen. Scott. The presence of Secretary Corwin seems to be infu sing into the whig ranks of Ohio a decided anti-Scott feeling. Two months ago, a whig convention in Ohio would have nominated Gen. Scott lor the Presidency. Now the leading whig organs oppose any nomination. The Cincinnati Gazette says: ,.- We concur .with the Ohio State Journal, that no nomi nations for the Presidency should be made. Nc such purpose was indicated as among the objects of tbe Con vention, and should a nomination be made, no matter ol whom, it cannot fail to embarrass us at the Stale elec tion, and will do no good to the person named. Let us come up to the State election as one man, and make our strength known. Let ns cultivate harmony in our ranks, elect whig State officers, and in due time show an undi vided front for a good, sound, able and experienced whig for President. We have enough to do now without weakening ourselves with that distracting question. The same paper thus speaks of the nomination in Pennsylvania. NOMINATION OF GEN. SCOTT IN PENNSYL. VANIA. It will be seen that the Whig State Convention of Pennsylvania presented the name of Gen. Scott to the wings ot the Union, as " ueyona a question me cuoict of the whigs of Pennsylvania," for the Presidential can didate for 1852. We regard this movement as injudicious and ill-judged one that will be followed with injurious consequences to Gen. Scott himself, and to tbe whig party in the Key stone State. The next election in that State, will be important and warmly contested. The whigs being united a strong pull and a pull altogether lid in- are saccess which would give the whig party and the candidate ol the party in laoz, a guaranty 01 success 1 gy. tms premature nomination ol Gen. Scott, the lnends of other candidates will be dissatisfied,. their interest and exertions in the State election very much lessened, and if the whigs are defeated, the potency of Gen. Scott's popularity will be seriously impaired in the National Whig Convention which is to nominate a President. We therefore expect that this movement, in its conse quences, will he injurious to Gen. Scott and the whig tarty in Pennsylvania. We hope and trust that tbe Vhi'g State Convention of Ohio, on Thursday next, will exnress no preference for anv particular Presiden- tial dandidate. We desire to go into, and nght tnrough. the next State election, as united whigs, uninfluenced by any preference for, or dislike to, any Presidential candidate.

While Lewis and Clarke proceeded up the Missouri, : and thence to the Pacific. Mr. Jefferson entrusted to General Wilkinson the selection of the offictr to explore the sources of the Mississippi. Gen. Wilkinson Wat at I that time the Captain Geueral of the -. a-t territory j known as Louisiana. He selected Lieut. Zeboloo Pike. He bad under his command a Sergeant, a Corporal and i seventeen privates, compoHOg the party. He bad DO subaltern officer, and no surgeon. It v as a paltry out- I fit for such an important expedition. He left St. Loots, I August 9, 1805, in a keel boat, seventy feat long, and with four months provisions. Trapper and burners doubtless had ascended the river previously; but there 1 were no accounts published, nor auv chart of this un known river. He reached the source, as he Mipposed, on February 1, 1806. Thus be was peiloimmg uia lour in the depths of winter, in latitude lony-seven degrees north. The exposures and hardships suffered by tba party, have been equalled orHy by the party under Col. Fremont. Since that period, a more perfect exploration has led to the discovery of other sources. 1 be head waters of the river consist of a labyrinth of lakes. Id the e remote regions, he met several Indian traders, belonging to the British Companies, from a bom he re ceived the utmost hospitaliiy. After a short stay, ha commenced his journey home, and arrived at St. Louis on the 30th April, l806. So well pleased was General Wilkinson with hie i labors, that he immediately ordered him on another ar 1 duous tour. The second expedition embraced the ex ' ploration of the source of the Great 0age, the Arkan sas, and the Kcd Kivers. He lelt St. Louis, on July 15 This region was at that time as little known as ibe inte rior of Africa. The only traveleis had lieen French tra ders, who carefully kept their information to themselves He traced these different rivers to their sources, and published charts of them and of the Mississippi, which were made from direct observation. He inadvertently crossed the boundary, and found himself in the Spanish Territory. This originated from his crossing the waters of Red River, and taking the Rio Grande fur that river He was immediately waited on by a superior body of Spanish soldiers, and escorted, under honorable surveil lance, down the Valley of the Rio Granae to Chihuahua, thence by San Antonio to Natchitoches, which place he reached on July 1, 1807. His party consisted of two Lieutenants, a Surgeon, two corporals and sixteen pri vates. A comparison ot his tour with the observations of gentlemen, lately from the Valley of the Rio Grande, proves that but little change has occurred in tbe condi tion of the country since that time. Pike and his party encountered difficulties in this expedition, for want of food and hardship, quite equal to those which attended his first adventure. The publication of his Journal a ss at a most epportune time, just when the excitement of the Burr expedition and trial was at its height. He was promoted to a captaincy in 1809. ard shortly after was made Lieutenant Colonel of the Fourtn Regi ment, which acquired so much glory in the battle of Tippecanoe, though he had not joined it at the time At the approach of the war he became Colonel, and, in 1816, was appointed Brgadier General. He was killed at the taking of Yorktown, by tho explosion of a maga zine. He was a man of superior education to either Lewis or Clarke. Iti youth his indomitable perseverance and capacity of endurance, recalls the character of Fremont, whose more extensive explorations were made with am ple mean. His early death doubtless retarded the im mediate continuance of expeditions to the western coast of tbe continent. CT-Tbe following extracts from a report made to Con gress, in February, 1S36, apply well in discussing the "Exclusion Clause" in our proposed Constitution. The committee that made the report consisted of Messrs Pinckney, S. C; Hamer, O. ; Pierce, N. H.; Hardin, Ky.; Jarvis, Me.: Owens. Ga.; Muhlenberg, Peon., Dromgoole, Va.; and Turrill, N. Y. "And here let us ask, loo, what would be the condi tion of the non-slaveholding States, themselves, as re gards the blacks? Are tbey prepared to receive myri ads of negroes, and place them upon an equality with the free white laliorers and mechanics, who constitute their pride and strength? Will the new States conet that their territory shall be occupied by negroes, instead of the enterprising, ietelligent and patriotic white pope lation, which is daily seeking their borders from other portions of the Union? Sball the yeomanry of those States be surrounded bv thousands of such beings, and the white laborer forced into competition and association with then.? Are they to enjoy the same civil and politi cal privileges as the free white citizens of tbe north and west, and tobe admitted into social circles as their friends and companions? Nothing less than nil this will consti tute perltet freedom, and the principles now maintained by those who advocate emancipation would, if carried out, necessarily produce this state of things. Yet. who believes that it would be tolerated for a moment! Al ready have laws been passed in several of tbe non-slave holding States to exclude free blacks from a settlement within their limits, and a prospect of general and imme diate abolition would compel them, in self defence, to re sort to a system of measures much more rigorous and effective ban any which have yet been adopted. Driven from the south then, tbe black would find no plata of refuge in the north; and as before remarked, otter ex termination would be the probable, if not the inevitable, late of the whole race. Where is the citizen, than, that can desire such results? Where is the American alio can contemplate them without emotion? Where the abolitionist that will not pause, in viea- of the direful consequences of his scheme, both to the whites end lacks, to the north and to tbe south, and to the whole Union at large ? "If there is a feature by which the present age may be said to be characterized, it is that sickly sentimental ity which, disregarding the pressing claims and wants of bis on immediate neigbltoroood, or town, or State, wastes and dissipates itself in visionary, and often very mischievous, enterprises, for the imaginary benefit of re mote communities. Troc philanthropy, rightly nnder stood and properly applied , is one of the purest and most ennobling principles of onr nature ; bnt, misdirected or perverted, it degenerates into that fell spirit of fanati cism which disregards all ties, and tramples on all obsta cles however sacred or vererable, in the relentless prose cution of its horrid purposes." - mi anu Affair. Two weeks ago we noticed the case of a supposed sui cide by a roan found suspended to the limb of a tree, a lew miles over the river, near St. Marys. The Inquest at tbe time gave a verdict of self murder. Among some clothes found near the spot, was a pair of pantaloons, which, on being washed since, were found to have boles through the waistbands resembling marks of a bullett This circumstance with others created suspicions that all was not right. Two days ago the neighkmrs to tbe number of one hundred and fifty assembled, and had the body disenterred, when on examination by Dr. Hogue, of New Goshen, two holes were found if the shirt, still on the body, corresponding with those in the pantaloons, leaving no doubt by any one present, that the deceased had been murdered, and then suspended to a tree, in or der to do away suspicion of any foul deed. Tbe body was too much decayed to show any mark of a bnilett Tbe teeth were also broken in a manner which indicated a blow on the face. Dr. Hogue on further examination found a handker chief tied mood the body nnder the ebirt, which contain ed a Land Warrant with a receipt from D. S. Danaldsoa for the purchase money The variant is assigned by D. S. Danaldson to Rufns Reeves, and the receipt given in the name of Rofns Reeves. It is now sseertained that a young man of that name, recently lived with his uncle, Sol. Franklin, near Terre Haute; left home for the west, some six weeks since, with this very tame Land Warrant, in order to locate hie land somewhere ia Illinois. It is said he had a difficulty with some person or persons in Terre Haute as he passed through, and the supposition now is that he was murdered, and then suspended to a tree, in order to create tbe belief of sui cide, and do away the suspicion of death by other hand The matter will undergo further examination.
