Tlie jol lowing is a speech delivered by
Kos.-uth to the Germans of Pittsburgh on Wed?
nesday of last week:
[Translated for the Pittiburs/\ Gazette]
Laiuks and (Untlemen \ I esteem this
respectable meeting too highly, the motives of thi,
demonstration are too dear to me, and the assurance
that the German population of Allegheny County
will cooperate in the furtherance of European liber?
ty, has given mc too much pleasure not to inspire me
w:th the wis.'i to leave you some token of remem?
brance. i also well know that an address is doubt?
less the best means of making such an impression as
will cause you to cherish the recollection of this be?
nevolence, for the sentiments he may utter remain
longer in the heart than the countenance of him
who has been honored by your benevolence. But
alas! indisposition, exhaustion, und want of time
have made it impossible for me to prepare mvseif as
i had wished, and as you have a right to expect
Therefore, I thank you, that your orator (by his
declaration that you do rot expect a long speech,
unCer such circumstances,) has relieved me from the
duty of asking your forbearance. And truly who
ever wishes to con'er benevolence on any person
has reached his object so soon as his benevolence is
bestowed. By this demonstration, (which, I am told,
will be accompanied by "substantial aid" to my
country; you have given to my heart that consola?
tion which it so much needs.
1 came to America with great bopet ? and I have
no reason to ke?-p this secret. My faith in princi?
ples kept those hopes alive, anl w.thout it I would
lui j since have slun bircd in the grave That faith
Bl.mcs as firm in my breast as my belief in God him?
self. Consequently 1 believed liberty was a prin?
ciple also in the hearts of the citizens of fiese Fnited
Slates, and m this belief I expscted to find aid for
mv bleeding country.
But to you, ladies and gentlemen of the G rm in
tongue, 1 am bound by peculiar ties. I know you
are American?but i also know, that you cannot for?
get those ties of blood which bind you to the Eoro
i< in continent, where the ashes of your ancestors
ret t. und where your living relatives sigh under the
oppression of cruel tvrants. The Germans will
always remember their country with feelings of at
ta< kment, friendship and love?a land to which
Fmope- is so much indebted for her civilization.
Ai d Germany is connected v ith my own country by
runny a tie of the past and the future. From her
ii ngary received tne Christian religion; hardly had
our anceitors gained foot hold In Europe, when this
blessing waspresenttdthem in Germ.my Thiscon
nectiun lasted for centuries, for God h is destined us
to be the bulwark against the encroachments of the
? ist. At that time the soil of Hungary drank the
blood of many a Germ in licro.
It was Germany, again, which brought the refor?
mation to Hungary/, and whence the latter derived
much of progress m science. JNo country has re
Cetved it more willingly what decree of knowledge
I myself enjoy, has been derived Irom German
schools . my teaokora weie all Germans.
In later times, German and Hungarian w arriors
fought under the allied Princes of Europe against
.Nhj.>o!coii Iioiriparte?the man who threatened to
absorb the world , they bled for the same cause, and
together learned that they had served as the blind
tools of the despots . nnd when peace was restored,
received the "Holy Alliance," Instead of the
promised liberty. Certainly there was never a
l ie more cruelly abused than ms word " Holy"
ioihntcoriiiecii.nl. Again were we united by the
tics of common deception and common oppression.
And four years ago, when Hungary, among all the
nations of Europe,had yet a shade of constitutional
liberty, and when we were assembled in the '? Land?
tag," (Congress,) I felt the necessity of Germany's
liberty, to support th?t of Hungary . yes, I felt it in
such a degree that 1 raised my voice and stimulated
ii.\ ration to prevail upon the House of Austria to
give back to its German Provinces the liberties of
which it had robbed them. Often has that speech
appeared to me like a dream but as a dream full of
:i :i ations?and 1 almoitbelicvethat 1 wastheorigin
of the German revolution.
W hen afterward the German representatives sat
deliberating at Frankfort on-the-Maine, I immediate?
ly sent ambassadors thither, as an evidence that
Germany would always have a true friend in Hun?
gary . and when Russia came, the fall of Hungary
proved likewise the fall of the hopes of (jermmy.
Hivtrry is the book in which Cod icveals Ins coun- I
edit by deeds. 1 have read the hutory of Germany
carefully. She forms the heart of Europe. Wne.i
evtr the heart is tick, the whole body It sick, and |
whenever the heart is sound, tho whole body may
be i onsidered healthy, although some other pans
may be diseased?for the healthy heart furnishes
the whole body with healthy blood?with fresh
nourishment. Jfdo not undervalue (lermany.
But, on the other bead, the healthy heart (rcer- !
many) requires a breast to protect it against exter- i
nal, foreign, destructive impressions. Hunger] ;s
this breast? this breast hone?which is destined to
proteit the heart ol Europe, Germany, In this,
th< n, there is another tie ol union
As soon as Hungary snail have regained that poei>
tion among the nations of Europe to which she is
justly entitled,?and trhieh we. by means of your
sub t.u.tia! uid, endeavor to BOOomplUk, (sue Will
never be e great na Ion, of that we are well awarej
?so soon will it be our duty manfully to keep the
I rood nrrnraii&e of Russia in check. To tins end
is e must become the executors ot the Willed God,
we must reol out Austria?not the good people of
Austria, oh, no ! many a holy and dear tie bin Is us
to them?but the blood-stuntd dynasty of Austria , J
and 11 sides, it w ill be our dut> to prevent the ktnp;
dom of Prussia from leaning on Russian aid. What
would Gerintmy then have to fear' She then could
dispose of her thirty old petit princes in less thin
twenty-four hours. She could then ba free, and
guarantee the liberty and independence of the other
European nations
!i i.rethc ties which unite Germany and Hun
gaiv. Well, I have the honor of speaking before
(.< nnaa ladies ai d gentlemen, who in their davs of
happiness cannot ignore nor forget the misery of
their consanguinity, if. therefore, I irould not that
my mission should turn out a failure, I ha I t> and
did eouit on the German citizens of tne Fnited
States, knowing well that they feel the deepestsyin
pHihy, it or.ee they Ice! interested in a cause.
\ ou, German inhabitants of Allegheny County,
have this day transformed the blossoms ot my hope
into a beaut.ful fruit, by organizing yourselves into
an Association cf Fnends ol Hun:; try, and by prom?
ising mc still more tubstauti il Bid. May God bless
you for it! |
Wliatevt r may he my fate? that metiers not The
life of ewe man has tittle weight In ihe scales of na
lions and ot their lale. Ci rcs have impaired my ,
Strength, but by the principles of liberty, i shall re- |

It is my people whom you bon>r, for my he. 't 1? a

Af-out four years ago. when wc had not as yet a
r?K ? ar mm), we nevertheless felt a desire, (from
gvatitttde toward N iei.it ?.) with 3 1,000 men, to make
tne attempt to r.use the icge of ta it city, against

But to you, gentlemen, 1 can faff the present ex
piess cnly by woids the thanks ol my country for
yoni kind, substantial aid. Happy would 1 feel,
were yon to furnish me with the names of th?se who
have coi.uil uted to this work. In order thit, (if God
should giant me the bleistng to breathe only ote
boor rn that country, where the ashes of my an es?

EaoU Pias, (Texas,) Thursday, Jan. I, IKl
Sir : 1 lit,; |0 tiansniit to }ou the follow?
ing account of willful murder, perpetrated at Ragle
Pass, Texas, on the evening of the t!7th ult., at abaut
7 o'clock, of John Clatk, a private soldier, of Com?
pany D, First lafantry. The circumstances are
briefly as folloas
Cl ok, the ( creased, in eompanv with three other
privates from the garrison, proceeded to the null
ceneed tavern of Richard MadtOOtt,(lately appointed
<i Ju; tied of the Peace for the County of De Bexar,)
a- ( usti mary, to procure some liquor. While Clark
v as standing at the bar, a notorious loonodrol named
Alortitnei Cook, supposed to be a native of Mans*
field, Ohio, ai.d a late discharged soldier from the
q.trriton, (Fort Duncan,) ruined into the bar with a
loaded six-shooter in his hand, took deliberate aim
nt ( lark, and shot him de td, at the same t me calling
him abusive names. The ball first mangle 1 the fore
fngcr of his left hand before entering tits rigtit
Ueast, where it loc'ged. Thj decased was a native
Ol the city of Dub'in. [reload, an t a baker by occu
i ation, and a most inoffensive man. Ho wee, et the
time, under the iciluen e of liquor.
Cook then aimed his pistol at one of the o'.her men,
named MeCoaneLL Two capiexploded, but, fortu?
nately, the pistol did not go off, when hes'.ruc't
Met. a blow with the pistol, which knocked him
down . he then jumped on and kicked kim.
The officer of the day, with a fi:eof tic guard
from the gairlson, repaired to the scene of the out?
rage and, in half an hour after, succeeded in arrest?
ing Cook, and had him safely lodce-1 in the guard
house Ht the garrison. The officers of the garrison,
with a lew respectable citizens, (disinterested men,)
are of the opinion that the deceased came to his
death by the handi of Cook, as described . who
prowled about ever sincedischarged the lervice,
ictkir g revenge for imaginary nij iries done him,
wh.le Serving as a soldier. It appears from his
threats iepeHt(i\ that his commanding officer, or
lODd of the non-eomiiiKMoned offic-rs had been the
object01 Lis diabolical design, having reduced him
frcm lit sergeant to the raakofl prua'e for re?
peated acts of indiscipline, Ac.
[| may not be amiss, however, to remark that some
o! ihecitizei.s of the village above cited met (the
day previous, the MlhJ at the house of Mch ird
Mason, J. P., and passed the following resolution
unanimously, in the prelenee of Cook, who was in
consequence, stimulated thereby to commit the fa'.al
deed, to gratify his thus mg desiro for revenge.

1 |s vil'any?Madison has raised hiruxeif to his pres?
ent position from the sale of liquor, in a common
tent, to roldiers who spent th^.r money freely with
him. Cook has since boon set at large, and escorte 1

tv Ml Malison, who etaixni the right as a mat'.er
of OOtUoOf aoifll oAoor. What may turnout from

It is quite evident that tbO forenoing reiotutions,
pOraed by Mr. M. rnd his ass<-ciates. have had the
deiired effect to -timuUte Cook to commit the atro

In oornmencinr; the Third Lecture of his
course on Tuesday evening, Dr. Detrey remarked that
he had on a former occasion considered the Sohool of
Man, or rather he might say, the school-house, and
he now wished to call attention to the pupil himself.
He propored to discuss the subject of human organi?
zation, regarded in its connection with the formation
of character and the development of mind We un?
derstand by the very term organization, a system of
means adapted to specific puiposes. I wish, said Dr.
D.. to look into the philosophy of this system, al?
though the word philosophy is so much abused in
modern times. Now-a-days we have a philosophy
of everything. The most superficial treatises of
shallow sciolists are dicniried win the title of phi?
losophy But the true nim of philosophy is eleva'.ed
and rational, and intimately connected with the pro?
gress of humanity. Let us, then, examine the differ?
ence betweon the orgam/a.c n ? f man and that of
the lower animals, in regs-d to it influence on the
tiaimns: and perfection of bis spiritual nature.
Consider the faculty of tou b This is aa import?
ant distinction between man : - ! beast. If man had
been born without a skin, With a hide and hoofs for
insiance instead, it would h ive essentially changed
ell the relations of his being. He now receives his
earliest impressions from the sense of touch. It is
rekitt d lo the development of the sweetest ifoetions
The indulgence of kis-ing is au interesting ex.rrei.-e
of this faculty. But this is peculiar to man. The
beasts arc shut out by their very organization fron
the.i'harm of oseulatory blandishments Tnis is one
of the high privileger of humanity The delicacy of
the skin is a criterion of the general fineness of or?
ganization. A coarse skin is almost incompatible,
with a refined mind. If I knew a man who could
let a fly creep over his face without feeling it, 1
should be cpt to set him down as harsh and eoarss
gninicd in his spiritual nature, and destitute of no?
ble, expaciive and ?ympathitic scnsibilttte?. The
ekin in mnn, then, is an efficient means of his spirit
ual education.
Another important element in hu training to higher
ends is the faculty of laughter. The animals ere
net endowed with this power, unless the grinning
of monkeys is an excepticyi. This is not merely an
expression of the stese of the ludicrous. Laughter
is the symbol of a contented mind, of a Rental fel.
lowihip, of a comfortable reuse of satisfaction,and
tends to unite the scattered elements of society in a
common feeling of fraternity. Its influence on health
is not to be overlooked. An explosion of laughter is
an excellent aid to digestion. Superior to old wine,
or old cheese, or other celebrated peptic persuaders.
The gift of peech is a noble characteristic of the
human organization So essential is its possession
to the elevation of man, that many havo regarded i;
as the immediate bestowal of the Creator. But we
should not multiply miracles without cause. They
lose their effect by frequent repetition. Speech is
no less w onderful and peculiar, if regarded ai the
natural j roduct of the hum ai Off IWtiattffiSj, I have
known two children, who played t >getber for
a Min.n.ir, form a language (or themselves. But
be this as it may, there is nothing greater or
mere imprerstve m the wt.olo compass of crea?
tion. The sounds which aro 0 BS toted from the

Dr D , I regard the soul as thecorru^ter of (be body,
rather than the body as the con up er of the soul.
The exercise of ambition, hatred and rn thee pro?
duce worse effects thaB the indulgence of the appe?
tites. Indeed the bod) mipht ray to the soul, tnat
before they came together it had known no stain or
sin. It had passed through an infinity of modifica?
tions, but for the first time was acquainted with evil
by its connection with the soul. In illustration of
these remarks, Dr. D. considered at length tho appe?
tite of hunger. This may bj taken as tne type of all
the appetites, which in their remilar normil indul?
gence produce nothing but good, while evil and ta
ci nrerierce come only ffbm their abuse.
The lecture waa concluded with a glowing des
cription of the pleasures of sense, especially those
which are received throJgh the median of the eye
sLd the ear. TL? inspiring charms of the landscape,
and the ra\ .slung harmonies of music proceeded
from the sensitive nature, which need* only to be
cultivated in purity, in delicacy, and in accordance
with the Divine laws to reinstate roan in ike delights
of Paradise.

liberately upou the ground, and pulling the muszle
