OEO. S. C. Dow, WM. HALL, V. E. PLTXAU, John T. KIN *, IIESIIV AITMANT, County Central Comniittee. The arrogance ol Republicanisms, The Abolition members of Congress comj»obed of thoao 4'«lyed in the wool' ami a few dcHerters from the Democrat io ramp, talk as if they had the entire Democracy of the North under their control. To read their speeches one would suppose tho whole people of the Northern States are now marshalled un der the hlaek flag of Abolitionized Re publicanism. They count upon eighteen millions of the North, presenting un broken front, bearing down upon eight millions of the South, with the view of .subjugating the people of the slave-hold ing States or driving them into the sea. Bftt there is another side to this picture which, if exhibited, wili show the facts as they do Btand. In th recent dectiono,at a tine when Abolitionism was at its zenith, its vote did not represent much ovor one half of the people of the North. Kveu assum ing this as a data from which to calcu late the relative numerical strength of parties in the North, and with the entire population of the South in one body, we have at least sixteen millions of the peo ple of the Union on the sido of Democ racy, and ten millions on the side of Ab olitionized lief ublicanism. But there exists not a doubt that the Republican party is in a numerical SEWAHP, minority in tho North, and will 60 be found if the embodiment of its principles, WILLIAM H. be placed in nomination (or the Presidency. Tho bombast of the Republican organs in claiming a majori ty of tho people of this countiy as their friends is very apparent, when yon cast glance over the trhole Union. Mr. Vallandigham, of Ohio, made a very appropriate reference to theso facts in his speech, delivered in the House of Representatives on the 15th inst. lie said, in reply to Arnold Hickman And row. one word to tho gentleman from Penimlvunia, (Mr. IIICKMA*,) who took refuge the other .lay in the "engine room" of the oth er side ol tiiis Chamber whence, throng!) new and rudely constructed port holes, to send his missile* whittling into the cauip which he eo lately decried. I admire his discretion—the better part of valor. Sir, he spoke ul/out pre.** ejpitatinc: eight. n millions of people upon eight millions. W hence doe* he propose to got his eighteen millions Did he iiuttn to include us of the Norf i.west lKrs he imagine that we ar. militiamen to be dr tiled, or conscripts to be enrolled, an 1 march fortli at the sound of bis drum or to the note of his biij^le I tell him that, if he means to raise the black stand ard of internecine war,he must find his recruits Dearer home. Mr. FLORENCK, (in his seat) He will not find them there. [Applause in the galleries The reaction in the North, which is 4wtined to exterminate the power of Abolitionism, Las already commenced. The expose of its principles is so com plete that hereafter no one can bo de ceived. The hypocritical cant of its ad vocates has had its day. The bullying braggadocios who have been unexpect edly elected to positions through misrep resentation, will not intimidate those against whom their threats are made, particularly when it is borne in miud (bat there is a power at home quite able It subdue the boasters. CSreely and the Davenport Gazette. Tho Abolition organ, in reply to one •f our articles a few days ago, stated that no portion of the Republican organiza tion of the North designs to make ag gressions upon the South. We would like to have the Gazette and nineteen-twentieth* of hit co-de fenders of freedom in Kansas, were and are republicans, and migrated there oader the impulse of republican ideas and convictions." Henry Clay ati Abolitlonized-Repab licaaisau The "cool impudence" of the Aboli tion organ in this city, in its frequent at tempts to make it appear that CLAY, man. lass' Ptpcr, to state, if it does not view old Brown's foray as an attempted aggrestion upon the rights or institutions of the Southern 8tates Tkat veracious sheet will hardly have the assurance to answer this interroga tory in the negative. If then old Brown's raid was an aggression, it was the work of a reoognized Republican/for the leading organ of Republicanism of the North endorsed him as such. On the 13th day of October, 1858, Ureal John Browa, ol OssewaUmra HENKV if alive at this day, would be found within the Abolitioned-Itepubli •an organization, is worthy of the per sonification of efTrontery who writes for its culumne. The whole life of this dis tinguished Kcntuckian was marked by hostility to sectionalism in every form. Just as he WAS stepping from earth to Hc.tven, he cant a glance upon the gath ering elements of which the modern Republican party was to be formed.— Among the last words delivered to the people of his own Stato were the fol lowing "But if that Whig party is to be merged into a contemptible Abolition party, a :d if aboli tion'sm is to be ingrafted on the Whig creed, from that moment. I rei.ounce the party and cease to be a Whig. 1 o yet a step further. If 1 am alive, 1 wiil tjive my Lumiile support to that man for the Presidency who, to what ever party he may belong, is not contaminated by fanaticism, rather than to one who, crying out all the time that he is a Wh g, maintains doctrines utUrly eulneraive of the Conblitu tion and the Union." In the face of this proclamation of his determination to desert that portion of the Whig party which was led into the embraces of Abolitionism and to pursue the course adopted by his sur viving political friends, CIIOATE, UEKD and many others, the Abolition organ in this city would have us believe, that the immortal CLAY would, if upon earth, be now found in companionship with Seward, Greely and a host of minor lights in the ranks of the Republican party. This effort to cast a stigma up on the reputation of one whose memory is revered by every lover of freedom in the land, will be frowned upon by the sincere friends of the Patriot and States- Btithusiasan. Eloquent and earnest as were the speeches at tho great Union meeting, they were not above the sentiments o! the audience. No words could have ex pressed a loftier patriotism, a more de viated love for tho Constitution and the Union, an intenser hatred of sectional istsand agitator*, than lived and burned in that vast concourse of citizcus. They caught and applauded ideas before they were half out of tho .speakers' mouths No clay tier was needed, to give the sig nal from the stage or other conspicuous part of the lious There was no little picked chorus about the speakers' stand, to do the plaudits cf the evening. At the talisinanic word*, ''Union," "Consti tution,'' "Fraternity," "Justice to th South," at every expression of love for our common country, and for our Southern bretlueu, there was a spontane ous burst of aj.plunst! all over the house, breaking out in the parqnette, the box es, family circle, and the ainpithcatre, at tho same moment, leaping from six thousand throats in one vast volume of sound. Of a'l the excellent sentiments that received tho immediate and unani mous approval of this great popular tribunal, none were more enthusiastiea! ly applauded than those in which the tribe of Abolition preachers were re buked and denounced. The cheers at these points werj always fierce and pro tracted,—indicating, beyond a doubt the deep hatred and disgust with which the preachers of a political gospel are regarded by the intelligent, industrious, law-abiding masses of the people—SUCH people as were packed into the Acade my of Music en Monday night. It would appear from the evidence on that occasion, that, outside of the fanatical congregations whish these preachers of the "Sharpu's rifle" school have collected about thorn, the *lChoevers," the "Beech ers," and the humbler specimens of their class, are justly despised and execrated The ftrong, healthy, wel.-regulated pub lie mind rejects and resents the moil .strous teachings cf such men. Instead of making converts to their atrocious theories in this most conservative city they are building up, day by day, an in dignant opposition to them and their churches.—Ar. il Journal of Oomutcrce Letter from Fred. Douglass* The last number of Frederick Don contains a letter from the fugitive editor, who has arrived safely in England. Douglat-s confesses his sud den journey was undertaken in fear of arrest, lie says: "It is probably quite well known that I sailed not from the United State?, but from Canada—not from Boston, where I bad intended to take passage, but from Quebec. Nor is it necessary to state that the Harper's Ferry troubles, and the evident purpose of Messrs. Ben nett and Buchanan to involve me in them, caused mo to take my present journey, for that I was already deter mined upon more than a year ago, and the arrangements partly made for it." Of John Brown, he says "Had John Brown pursued his origi nal plan—avoiding a fight altogether, keeping himsc'f and his men scattered abroad in the ravines, caves, and the ten thousand Sevastopol to be found among the Alleghany rango of mountains—ad ding to his number all such as desired to be lree, and were willing to suffer hard ships and perils to gain it—the insurrec tion would not have seemed the mad and fruitless thing it now seems." The Skaneatelas Y.] Democrat gives the first chapter in "a story of real life," by saying that Miss Harriet E. Smith, daughter of Horace Smith, of Spafford, Onondaga county, will start soon for Washington Territory, away in the Northwest, beyond the Rocky Mountains, to marry a man she had never seen—Mr. David Splading, Jr., son of Ms. David Splading, of Spafford. The friendB of the partios are intimte, and a correspondence between them has continued for two years, and has resulted in a marriage contract—and the young gentleman being engaged in a profitable business which he cannot con veniently leave, he has remitted foinds to the lady, with a request fitr her to join him there.

There has been a full and free discussion on all points, and now they are ready to go to the tinal passage of bills, or perhaps will be obliged to return to the old law as it now stands, and make a few amendments.— Nothing can be dune till more harmony prevailf, but there are indications to day of greater unity of sentiment.

THE COUNTRY GIRL.—The country girl is a favorite theme with the poet, and when she is what ^he generally paints her, she is more than worthy ot his verse. What a picture of frech and charming beauty does the mere men tion of her name call up before the minds eye! Those noble contour.-,that full and rounded bust,those sweet, frank, maidenly features those deep, clear eye», so full of sweet expression those health-tinted cheeks, with their diffused and peachy blootn—all conspire to form a combination which no mortal man has either the power or the will to withstand. Such a being is queen in her own right, atid all men are her willing slaves.— This is the ideal country girl—the conn try girl as she ought to be, and might be. Seek her among the corn-fields, and or chards, and in the cottage-homes which hide themselves among the apple trees! If you do not find her, you will fiud in her place, the actual country girl of to day, with perchance a crookedj spine, a contracted chest, a diseased liver, and a dyspeptic stomach. Neuralgia, general debility, 44 decline," chlorosis, prolapsus uteri—the whole train of female disease in short—are now almost as common in the country as in the city. It is fash ionable to be sentimentally pale to have "delicate health and alas to be consumptive and die young.—Hints to OF BRAZIL.—A Rio de Janeiro correspondent of the New York Courier says The diamond mines of this splendid country contribute to "the mineral wealth of the world. A few days ago. the roy al mail steamer Tyne left here for Southampton, having no less than $75U,OUU worth of diamond?, collected, within a very brief period, from the ex haust!es» treasures of Brazil. The great er part of this shipment is from the cel ebrated mine of Siera-de-Frio, a rocky, barron locality, which is guarded with great vigilance. In IT94, a diamond weighing no less than one thousand three hundred and eighty-two carats, was taken from Frio, and at'diff erent periods since, very large ones have been found there. Indeed, few nations send more of these precious stones to England and the United States than this—a fact yon do not often think of when admir ing breastpins and bracelets. The New Ilampsbiere Patriot states that on Friday morning, seven teen well-dressed young ladies were seen inarching up Main street, in Concord, drawing a berrcl of flour on a hand sled, walking in couples and drawing by a rope, with the odd one for a leader. Uponinquiry.it was ascertained that they were the girls employed in a tai loring establishment, whose proprietor had proposed to give a barrel ot flour to a poor woman, on condition that the girls should draw it to her in thia man ner—a proposition very readily accepted by the girls, and very handsomely per formed. WE see stated that Mr. David Straus of Ottawa, this State, has sold this year $75,000 worth of beef cattle from his farm, $48,000 worth ot which were sold to one finm in Chicago.

The Massachusetts Senate has adopted an amendment to the law which removes the dis ability to receive the testimony of atheists in oourts of law.

The latter clause to the amen^« ment was adopted by a vote of 10 to 7. The vote upon the amendment, as amended, was 13 to l:i, and it was adopted by the casting vote of the President.
