ers, who want to see, the actual inl

but one object in this Whig Fusioi
movement, viz. to secure the election of
State and County officers, thereby de
stroying the organization of the Demo
cratic party. Can they do it ? No,
gentlemen, your game is understood.
It is to build up the Whig party at the
expense of the Democratic party. We
cannot think that any Democrat will
countenance this polluting alliance. The
" sober second thought " of the Democ.
racy of this County, will be found in their
adhering to their former faith, and man
fully resisting every effort for the sub
version of their cherished principles.
No question of a day or an hour, will
separate a single Democrat from our or
ganization. .The masses, at the coming
election, will be found casting their votes
on the side of Democracy, and against
the guerrilla factions of the Whig party.
This has always been the case, when
any thing like a full vote has been polled.
The New York Evening Tost, a Free
Soil paper, and one that no Fusionist
will deny baring uniformly opposed the
Nebraska Bill and the Administration,
and which has been extensively quoted
by the Fusion press our neighbor, the
Times, among the rest speaks as fol
lows as to the impossibility of repealing
the Nebraska Bill :
- " It has been extensively proposed to
restore the Missouri Compromise to re
peal the repeal.
" Let us see what prospect there is
that this can be done. A House of
Representatives could probably be elec
ted, a decided majority of which would
vote for the restoration ; but it would
require many years to effect a sufficient
change in the Senate to get the measure
through that body. As, therefore, it
would be sure of a defeat in the Senate,
it seems hardly worth while to discuss
its chances of an Executive veto, for it
would never reach the Executive.
" Is it, then, advisable to go for a
measure which has no possibility of suc
cess ? Should we not lose the confidence
of the people in this practical, hard
working age, by wasting our time and
theirs in advocating a movement which
is absolutely certain to be defeated, and
the certain defeat oi which must be ap
parent to every "intelligent person who
will candidly examine the subject ?
"We believe that the clear impracti
cability of accomplishing the restoration
of the Missouri Compromise, will render
impotent eveiiy political organization
which may bef attempted on that basis.
It is clearly ofur opinion, therefore, that
it is utterly useless and idle to make th:s
tlie issue ."

expense of emigration, by maiUj,,
XUtamier tence. Tlie buildings are new,
tracts with the lines of transportation
Advertisements have been published to
forward 20,000 emigrants this fall. The
fare from Boston to Kansas will be only
$25, one half the usual rate. This is
practicable by having a responsible
moneyed company to make the contract.
In the next place, the emigrants will be
protected from the usual frauds. Fur
ther, the Company proposes to aid the
migrant after his arrival in Kansas.
The agents of the Company have ex
plored the Territory, and have full in
formation as to all its resources; also,
the Company has agents resident there
to receive the emigrants. In the nest
place, there arc to be rcceiving-hcusc?,
in which the emigrants to !e lodged
on the'r fijjl arrival. In tho meantime,
until the houses arc ready, there are
fifty tents erected, in which the first ar
rivals have been already received, and
which will answer for the next draft,
when the first have their log cabins built.
Further, the Company proposes to pro
vide everything necessary for a new col
ony in the mechanic arts, printing, ana,
perhaps, education, secular and religious.
A gentleman from Crawford county, Pa.,
is ready to move his power-press into
Kansas and to bring with him 200 fami
lies, no one of which is worth less than
82,000. The paper is to be called The
Herald of Freedom, and the gentleman's
name is Geo. Washiugton Brown.
Another advantage is, that persons
from the same neighborhood cau settle
compactly together, and bring with them
their own institutions. The morals of
the west sutler much from lack of schools
and churches; but, in this way, these go
in the same b oat with the emigrant.
Thus, the interests of the Company and
the emigrants are identical. The emi
grant is no way bound to the Society ;
no pledge of any kind is demanded from
him, and any aspersion of the kind is
false. To produce all this good; it is
evident that the Company must have
money, and be a stock company, to trans
act their affairs in a business-fike way.
The Treasurer is Moses H. Grinnell of
this City, and the Acting Agent, It. W.
Havens. Applause. There is no pos
sible room for any complaint on the part
of the emigrant ; the only operation of
the Company on him will be one of aid
and charity it never can make one cent
oat of him. Another result will be that
wherever the Company sends emigrants,
there a free State must grow up. Ap
plause. It is proposed to operate ou
Kansas for one year ; after which time
she will probably be a State, and and a
free one. Twenty thousand men can, to
a certainty be put into Kansas before
winter. Numbers of persons have writ
ten to the Company that they prefer
Kansas to Nebraska for the soil and cli
mate; but that they will go to Nebraska
unless the Company take hold in Kan
sas, as they will not expose themselves
to the vicinity of Slavery. Whatever
the papers may say, the Missouri slave
holders have not moved one slave into
Kansas, although they have staked
claims, and left men to watch them. But
they will never occupy them ; there will
be less inducement in three weeks or
months, than now. The report of chol
era on the route are groundless. Near
ly all the applications to the. Company
already made, are from native Ameri
cans. When the emigration once be
gins, it will be kept up in a constant
stream. The Company can send an
nually more emigrants to Kansas than
there are slaveholders in the U. States.
Applause, j The opportunity is the
best ever offered for investment, because
the Company immediately locates the
cities of the new Territory. :
T).e Company intends, after about a
year, to remove their operations from
Kansas probably to a more southern
point, because tho design is to make a
line of free States down to the Gulf.
Applause. The result will be a chain
of rail-roads and a southern route to
the Pacific. The moral dignity of this
mode of emigration surpasses that of
any on record. Those who have gone
were applauded in public when setting
out, and the gentleman who provided
them with outfits would only take 50 per
cent, in payment. A quarter section is
donated to every white male citizen, and
also to those who have declared their in
tentions with a few conditions. A gen
tleman in the audience questioned wheth
er such was the law, as he had only seen
it stated in Tho New Yook Herald, but
Mr. Thayer said he had seen it in an au
thentic quarter. If Northern blood be
shed in Kansas, it will spring up in
armed men who will annihilate their as
sailants. What the Company now wants
is a thousand leagues all over tho coun
try, of which many are already in pro
gress, each of which is to have a master
of emigration, to devote himself exclu
sively to the business. With him the
Aid Company corresponds. This divis
ion of the work is indispensable; the
Company have already hundreds of let
ters which they cannot reply to. Relia
ble information can be found in a book
by Rev. E. E. Ilale of Worcester.
Those who go should take their bibles
and their rifles ; not for aggression, but
prepared to stand on their rights. Ap
plause. Secret Societies. The Evangelical
Lutheran Synod of Ohio, and the adja
cent States, have passed a resolution not
to admit to church membership any per

SKILU1NG & BURNS
T" AVE the pjeamire of informing tne public
- in general, that they have ins received
ment. There is some mystery cffJect
ed with the operations of the Police
Courts and the " Tombs Lawyers .", I
was talking with an Irishman, buu(! up
for Assault and Battery for thirty days,
in default of $10 fine. He said that if
he had only three or four dollars to fee
a " Tombs Lawyer ," he could get out
the next day. I asked him how that
could be. He said that it was done ev
ery day, and hinted that there vas an
understanding between the ktwyera and
tho constables and turnkeys. I have no
positive evidence that it is so, except that
persons charged with Burglary, Assault,
etc., are shut up in the Tombs, and come
out tho next day with passes for which
they have paid sums of money, to law
yers, varying in amount with the nature
of the crime.
The Irishmen with whom I talked,
seemed to be a good-hcartcd, honest fel
low, and I was sorry for him. He had
struck a watchman while jolly withbad
liquor, and was now shut up with a pick
pocket and burglar, a young fellow with
a villainous, half-breed countenance, sen
tenced to State prison. He seemed to
see very clearly the evils resulting from
the use of liquor, and expressed en earn
est desire that there might be a Maine
Law. Drinking consumed all his wages,
ho could lay up nothing. And unless he
would drink himself and treat others, no
Irishman would associate with him. It
is this practice of treating? which is
the destruction of the Irish laboring
population. " The Germans ," said this
man, " are different. Among them, ev
ery Ji-n gets what he wants for himself
and pays for himselft But among is, if
one tries to lay up a little money ,7&nd
does not treat, they say he is the t05as
est Irishman thqy ever saw, anw-he
stands a good chance of being killed with
a brickbat. Tho only way a man can
save money is toeep close and know
nobody till he has saved $50 or $60, ar.d
then run awav ." It is. a pity that this
really genorous and noble-hearted peo
ple, cannot be taught a few lessons of
f jrcsigut r.ml economy. Till they learn
these, they must always continue to be
" hewers of wood and drawers of water .
I happened to be a witness to a splen
did conflagration in the lower harbor
the burning of the May Queen, during
this last week. You have probably seen
a detailed account of the catastrophe be
fore this time. I was on the Norwalk
returning from Covey Island, that curi
ous pile of scouring-sand, when a red
flame shot up, far out on the water,
which immediately attracted universal
attention, and the Captain of the Nor
walk, with praise-worthy promptitude,
immediately put out for the burning
wreck. It was a splendid sight. The
May Queen, a well known excursion boat,
had gone out in the morning, accompa
nied by two barges, carrying out, in all,
a paity of between one and two thousand
persons, from New 1 ork and Brooklyn,
on a pleasure excursion. There she lay
now, down upon the Statcn Island shore,
and burning nearly to the water's edge.
The whole beach was lined with specta
tors, and a long line of black beads, bob
bing up and down in the water between
the shore and the barges, told what was
going on. It was a funny sight, unmit
igated by any terrible circumstances, to
see scores of terrified ladies, plunging
frantically into the water and waddling
for the shore. The water was not more
than four feet deeD near the barges.
The City Inspector has presented an
immensely long report on the subject of
New York Milk, which is enough to turn
the stomach of any man, who is disposed
to consider, with any degree of fastide
ousness, the ingredients of his daily food.
There is a very profitable trade driven
by the New York Distillers, who feed
hundreds of cows on the distillery slops,
and feed half tho people of New York
on the milk accruing from these unsavo
ry animals. Tho cqws will not eat still
slops unless they are continually kept in
the stable, and given nothing else to eat.
Hence they become diseased, and die in
a few years.
The action of the Railroad Conven

come to the conclusion that it will be
best to postpone an exhibition this fall.
The pastures are burned up and our
stock men are not going to have their
cattle, sheep and colts in such a condi
tion as will make it a pleasure for them
to come up and exhibit them to their
friends and neighbors. They will keep
them at home. The fruit is shriveled

Claim Youe Bantling. The follow
ing gem is now afloat in the papers,
credited to the Columbus State Journal
a paper whicli is now fused with the
very party of " absurd dogmas " which
it then denounced :
What would the Whigs or the country
gain by an amalgamation of Whigs and
Freesoilers ? Certainly no desirable ob
ject would be achieved by such an alli
ance. No party in the State is more at
variance with Whig principles than the
Freesoil party. The platform published
and adopted by this party at their last
State Convention contains MORE ITL
TRAISM AND ABSURD DOGMAS
THAN ANY PAPER OF A PO
LITTICAL CHARACTER EVER
PUBLISAED IN THE UNION.
Will the State Journal say whether
this is its bantling ? '

of her stolen daughter, proceeded) the
house of the persons who had abducted
her and who were bringing her up as
their own and upon knocking for ad

Narrow Escape of the Russian Empe
ror from being made an English
! The Czar of Rnssia lately had & nios
barrow scape from being sent to" En
gland as a prisoner of war. The danger
occurred at Cronstadt. A littlo' En
glish yacht had ventured too yiear the
town, when a small Russian steamer, hav
ing on board the Czar Nicholas and sev
eral members of the Imperial family,
started off in pursuit. An English
steamer,seeeing the danger of the yacht,
came to its relief, which it accomplished,
but did not pursue the Russians, -which
it is supposed it might have overhauled,
on account of certain orders which had
been given the vessels of the fleet not to
venture too near the fortifications of
Cronstadt. In commenting upon this
occurrence, the London Times of August
5 th, remarks :
Could the English hut have knoicn
the. valuable freight which that little
yacht continued could the Euglish cap
tain but have knows that by capturing
her, or sending her to the bottom, peace
would have been restored to Europe; and
probably a million of human lives, first
and last, be saved, we have no doubt
that he would have carried one or the
other of the alternatives into effect, even
though his own destruction, that of his
ship, and of every soul on board of her
had been tlie inevitable consciiueuce,
Litils did hesuppose, at the moment t
that he had lost probably the greatest op
portunitp for obtaining personal distinc
tion wldch had ever been tin own in the
way of single man. The English nation
venerates the name of Lord Nelson for
the sake of certain little affairs iu which
he was engaged off Cape St. Vincent at
the Nile, at Copenhagen, at Trafalgar,
and elsewhere, but not all these wonder
ful, important, and heroic achievements
combined would have had such an impor
tant influence on the history of the world
as the capture of that little Russian ship.
It was given to the captain of a small
steamer to change the face of Europe in
tan minutes well emploj'ed, but in pure
innocence he missed the chance. .
On the political consequences of such
an event, we must scarcely venture to
speculate. The imagination of the his
torian who is called upon to write the
history of the events which did not oc
cur may fairly recoil from tho magnitude
of the subject. The little petty ques
tions, such as. those connected with the
Sulina mouths of the Danube, the navi
gation of the Black Sea, tho freedom of
the Circassian mountaineers, the restora
tion of Finland to Sweden, &c, sink in
to comparative insignificance by the side
of the chapter which might have been
written on tne result of the Jzar s
yachting expedition off Cronstadt. The
wonder of it is, that all this time we are
not dealing with a fable, nor with the
result of a drunkard's inspiration, but
with the sober and serious fact.. The
Czar of Russia, the Archduke Constan
tine and the Archduchess were, the oth
er day, as near capture and transmission
to England as it is possible to be with
out having actually incurred such a cat
astrophe. Such is life and history such
a strange mixture of chances and impro
babilities ! What an end to the Russian
war ! and to think, in all soberness of
thought, that it might really have come
to pass, had the captain of a little Eng
lish steamer known who were on board
the Russian steamer the other day off
