For freedom ftni NationAlity.
H. :. ffUCHt Editor. SUNDAY MORNING. JULY 27, 18C2. The I.ereraf flcbcl PoWr. Th memberi of ConRrePi wlio pigned tlie reply of tlio majurity to the Presi dent's Address on the subject of emanci pation, nay in (he coursef their remarks: "Nor do we (permit us to say, Mr. President, with all respect to yon) apra that the institution of slavery is ''the lever of their (i. . tbe rebels,) power," but we are of the opinion that "the lever of their power" is the apprehension that the power of a common Uovernmeut, created for common and equal preten tion to the interests of all, will be wield ed axaiiiHttha institutions of the South ern Slates." Now an alarming inquiry forces itself right here upon every reflecting mind: If demagogues and reckless odlce-hunt-ers have been able to deceive the people of the .South into the belief that the Fed eral government intended to destroy slav ery.at the very time when the government was fostering and protecting the system in everyway possible, will it not be just as easy to do so in the future? Why the most potent weapon ever used against the venerable CHiTTr.rUT.fl himselfj whose name is on the majority reply, was the utterly abnurd charge that he was un souud on the slavery question, that he was lukewarm on the Southern question, and was not to bo trusted. The ablest politicians of Kentucky themselves slave vwuert such as Mouehkad, Guthrie, and IIcnrt Ci.AF himself, have all been branded as Abolitionists by their ad versaries. Slavery has been the stock in trade of Kentucky politicians fur years past, and has excluded almost all other topics in canvasBes both for State and Federal offices. The reason is obvious; of all questions it is best adapted to inflame tho fears, prejudices and indignation of a slave-holding population, and it is most unreasonable thing to, suppose that olIico-huutiTS will drop so potent weapon voluntarily. Men who have been victimized as often as most of tho signers of this Kcporthavebeenughicertaiuly to know that slavery is terrible " lever of power" in the hands of a mob leader, and admirably adapted to precipitate tne State Into a civil war. In lad tho nu merous and uiiuute laws and regulation on the statute, books of Kentucky in reiereuce to tlie regulation ot slavery, prove how explosive a muter, al her legislators have always reminded it. If peace were made on the bnnia of tlie recognition of llw .Southern Confederacy, and Kentucky u-ro a constituent pari ot it, neittier Air. CniTTh.Nm'.s-, nor Mr ISUtxtrnv, nor General jAutnOK, nor Mr ViUKLim!, though all t,Uve-holdein, would ataiid any better chance of being elected to the humblest nllice than we do of being Minister to Fnylund; they Would be branded socially and politically as Abolitionists. Nor, again, if the Union were restored to-morrow, with the system of slavery untouched, would these gen tlemen faro any better al the liiiiuls of tho Southern Itights men. Whenever they wight ofTcr themselves ns randidates for ollice, their loyalty to slavery would be called in question, just as it has been a thousand limes iu past days. Can any sane man doubt the truth of this? Is there the faintest shadow of a hope that unprincipled oflicc-hunters will ever reaso to appeal to the fears and supposed in terests of slave-holders so long as the System of ulavery exists? Experience too, has shown clearly that tile slave holding interest is more easily con solidttted than any other. Other inter csts may divide nud act separately, but tho overwhelming mass of slaveholders act and vote together. Tho few excep tions to this rule seen in the occasional isolation of a Congressional District in Virginia, Louisiana, or Tenueseo, or per haps half a delegation iu Maryland orKen tueky, only go to illustrate our position more forcibly. It will bo found even iu these rases that the successful candidate out-heroded Herod, and proved himself a " better Southern man" than his rival Now, of necessity, this consolidated iu t-erest, wovin?, thinking, and acting to get her; as inseparable as the Siamese twins; at all times linked together by self intercut, cni.n inns nyoAik aud ii ,uiut ever form the controlling head of a polit iral party. liu-s any man hope that tho Millennium is at band, nud that office hunters are all going to be honest? Will a nolitical caucus or convention cast aside a watchword which ha rallied from ten to fourteen Kink's, in many i political contest, and made eight I resi dents of the L'uited Stale ' We think not ; just from our own acquaintance with human nature. It is unreasonable to ex peel any such thing. Here, then, you have the element of a rebellion perpetu ally brewing; it is a uug:uine that may explode, cither from a foreign or domestic spark; it is a volcano whose thunders though imprisoned, will not be hushed, and may, at any luouient, voiuit out its torrent of lire. I II Jill lilt I I ullol . Tho Louisville Dnnih-rat report that a party of guerrillas bad crossed theOnio river from Union county, Ky., to atiack Mt. Vernon, luduna. We wtiuhril two citizens of Mt. Vernon, one a roomy offi cer, and the other awtll kmnti indi vidual, d' not kuoW Something of thi Iiiatltr? We hear. I a eci-ii,ui bmst last Opting th' ,wo 4'f bei luuuls the Soutu hadlivod iu Mt. Venom, aud Were helping- the reb'.e liberally. U lllZAU. We have ori,e large real estate holders in our city who srs as wise as doves and ns harmless as serpents. Thvy meet on the street corners, and in back room, and at one auoi hers bonces, to bold long and earnest conferences as to the best mode of aiding Forrest, M t.oav, War nth, and other guerrilla leaders, in mak ing raids through this county and ad joining ones; in destroying property, in burning bridges, in cutting o(T communi cation between tho country aud our city, and in filling the minds of the people with alarm and perpetual excitement. Ten days ago these men exulted in the belief that Nashville would be captured by tho rebels, and it is even reported that In numbers of our elegant mansions sumptuous tables were spread for the en tertainment of the guerrillas when ihey should enter the city. Wo ask these people whether tho oscillation of Nash ville from tlie loyalists to the rebels, and from the rebels to the loyalists, indcQ nitely, can bring anything but ruin, upon upon us. It can benefit us in no possible way unless it be to enrich a dozen or so of contractors on each side. No man but a fool can believe that if Nashville was retaken by the rebels, it could be held three weeks by them. At most, it would amount to tumultuous raids, resulting in the destruction of property, tho advent of a larger Union force than ever, a substi tution of severe measures for the le niency which has heretofore been shown by the Federal authorities to the re bels, and a rule more rigid than ever over a desperate, prostrated and infatu ated city. We can account for the con duct of many of our wealthy men only on tho supposition that they believe all their property will be confiscated, and before this shall be they wish to make it as worthless as possible. It cannot bo that their course is dictated by attachment to the Southern cause, and desire to aid tho rebellion at any sacrifice, for if the-e were the motives which actuate, them, they would go where they could join the rebel army, and fight in its ranks. Now we say to these men, the time has arrived when you must take the severest conse qucdccs of your folly. The Federal Government has been so unwilling to be lieve you were bent on your work of trca son, that it has held tho sword of retri bution over your heads for months to give you tiniu for reflection, and instead of repenting, aud ankiug forgiveness for your enormous sin, you have laughed it to scorn. If you want to bankrupt your selves you can do it by continuing in a causu which has no harvest -i but thorns and thistles. You will be driven from the city, to mako way for honest and loyal men. Patriotic immigrants will pour iu and make the houses you have abandoned alivo with industry, and loy al Nashville will ere Ions be far mnro flourishing than she ever has been tinder the malign influence of a i-cllisli arisluc i acy. A I. "Jill r'resb, li-rlmi I'll per. Ihv. Gi:oimF. Fkaskii, for a Ions time a popular and able minister of the Presby terian Church in Southern Kentucky, has, nt the request of many of the lead ing Ministers and laymen of that deno ininaiioti in Kentucky, issued a prospec tus for a loyal church paper, to be called the Preibytrriiin Guardian. The prospec tus sta'es that the Guardian will be de voted primnrily to the interests of Christ's Kingdom, to the doctrines and polity of the Tresbyterian Church, Education, etc. It states distinctly that the paper will bear a true allegiance to the Constitution of the United States, ami sustain the Government in its present struggle for the life of tho nation. The terms are S'J.(X), aud the first number will appear in Sep tember. We can cordially commend the proposed paper to the public, as one that will be a sound and patriotic Christian journal, and eminently worthy of all lov ers of a united church and a united country. A very disloyal Presbyterian paper was published for a short time in Louisville, by liev. Sti'aht Koiiinson, but has been suppressed, while its editor was put in the Military Prison. The Guar dian is recommended by such loyal Pres byterians as llev. I'rs. Giikkn and Ili'M rnm;Y, of Danville. Wy bid It God speed. lA Northern secession exchango at tempts to be severe on Military Gover nors, and says that Governor Ioiisson must know that he is " violatiug bis old principle in holding Lis present office, which is not recognized in the Constitu tion I" Uravo! .1 i kk. Davis did nothing but argue about the Constitution for ten years before he seceded; so did Ma-ox, Kkitt, Witii Ai.L, et id imnc genus. It is a suspicious sign to hear a parson eter nally talking about his doctrines, or a politician talking about his coiihtitulioiial scruples; in the one case, piety, and in the other patriotism is apt to be lacking. Put what would this natrow-minded, dough-face do with Tennessee? Would he plate her under martial law? Or would he bold an election at present? Or would he leave her to 1-siiau Hauuis and his rebels? Wo incline to believe that this caviller is for the latter plan, and that he i to great a stickler lor the Cotiftitutioii that he would like to se the Military Governor of Tennessee driven out by Gov. ll.viu.is.

Among luto items of foreign gossip we find the following : An Knglish clergyman, beautifully got up, and tlie pink ol propriety, goes to Antwerp with a friend. They only go tor the day from Urussels, and so leave all their luggage behind. At Antwerp they go to see tho castle, and at tho cas tle they were shown the apartments of lien. I basse, who was then just dead, and was the hero of the place. Their guide goes off to receive another party, and Ihey are left alone. In tho lat lieu eral's bedroom they find a pair of mili tary truwsorx, unit a disuusiiou arises as to whether they would or would not be too small for the clergyman, He himself insists that he could easily get them on, aud oilers to show practically that he can do so, He takes oir hi black trow sers, ami is well into the leathers wheu the noise of an advancing party of sight seers scare him. llo and his friend re tire to an inner chamber, and the friend gently peep out to sea what happens.- The party turns out to be composed of ladies only, led by a fierce aud douiinoer ing old maid. She sees black trousers, and at once announces to her friends that they are "relic of Ueneral I'hassu." Further, she i not going to let such an intrrebtiug relic escape her; so hlio pulls out a pair of gcisrs, and cut out a patch a a keepsake. The other are in fluenced by her example and by the greatness of the prize. First one and then another petition fur a soiivnenir. One want to make n pen wiper, another a pin cushion. Tho an h tinel herself wants to get leggings out of these ilevoled garments. At last, all is cut away but a lew strap and buttons, and the ladies depart.

Asaii.Miincii offlercral nutlet's giu trous appiTciati'in of a true lady anil bis treatment of such, I will rolafe a little incident that occurred lait mouth. Mrs. Sloe'imb, very weallhy and respectable lady, who has a fine, large hon-io- on St. Charles street, opposite LaUyette riiare, solicited a pans lor herself' and family (consiiling of two married daughter's and their children) to their country reesi denee, but frankly slated that she. could not take the ont'li of allegiance to the I' nilcd States. The ( ieneral renlied that he would make her an exceotion to the rule, and grant, her a pass as a favor, if she would reciprocal, bv a favor to the United States iu allowing biui to appro priate her town house as bis resilience during her stay in the country. Mrs. Slocumb and her daughter, Mrs. I'npt hart, called upon tho Oen. ral and staled that up to the commencement of the war their hopes and wishes were for the main tenance of the Union, but that now near ly all of the mule members of their fami ly were in the Confederate army. One son of Mrs. isloctimb had been killed in the war, and their hearts were unalterab ly devoted to the cause of the South, which they believed to be just anil holy. Mrs. Uiuiihart, a noble, ilignilied lsdv, expressed, with the utmof-t candor, the above seiiliinenls, and commented upon the conduct of tho won of New Oilcans in allowing the capture of the city, in a manner not highly Haltering to them, but with nil her candor, sho never Torgol that she was a lady, and any one, who bad seen and listened to her could not but have been convinced that she would never descend to a dishonorable action, even for lb cause which is dearer than her life. Mrs. Slocumb, with the tears streaming down her face, spoke of tlie associations connected with her house, now more tender than ever before, nnd said she. did not see how she could give it up. Thg General in reply, told the ladies that he experienced peculiar ptansure in meeting ladies who, while they were enemies to his countrv, were so frank. so fai'hful, and devoted, and remarked that if New Orleans hadlxen defended by an army of such women as Mrs. Urtii hart he believed the Union army would have had considerable trouble in captur ing the city. In regard to their bouse ho assurjMi them that, althouli he had the power to take it, yet without their permission il should not bo occupied nor a brick of it be molested, unless the city should bo ravaged by yellow fever, iu which cause he might be obliged to take every house suitable for hospital pur poses; and, be added, if I can lin (I any other reason for making you an excep tion to my rule, prohibiting passes to any who refuse to take the oath, 1 will do it.
