SMITH. Poflly autumn winds were 'sighing Over pule, sweet fluweralg dyino;, A I roamed the garden, trying There to find one lingering rose, 'Mid ihe briery bushes creeping'. Under faded leuflels peeping, Here and there, still vainly keeping Hopeful search, till daylight's close. Disappointment theu stole o'er me: Thoughis of Winter gloomed before me: Time, said I, may ne'er restore me Summer's bligyful scenes again. Had I ouly prized its roses. Priced its days ofcloudless closes. Prized its bulmy eves' reposes, Lens were now my grief and pain. But, alas 1 those hours went stealing Like veiled beauties by. concealing Half the charms whone full revealing Might have left this heart aglow Might have left fond mem'rics beaming On the spirit's after dreaming; Tender beacons, suflly e'euming Where Life's darkeo'd wavelets flow. List, ye mnids now dancing lightly, List, ye youths so gay and rprighilr Us your summer moments rightly, Gather roses while ye may. Life hath but one Jane, remember; Quickly comes its chill November, Followed soon by wild December Sweeping all fair flowers away. Think how sad, when summer closes, And great Nature's hear! reposes, This fond searching; after roces. When the roaes are all dead J Widely, then, while Spring smiles o'er ye. Pluck the flnwers that bloom before ye Flowers whose sw eetness shall restore ye You! h'a delights, when youth has fled. of to he plo out if said fact i' that From the N. T. Independent. WASHINGTON.

After hav ing poured out the most violent, unmanncr ly, and disgraceful speeches against Mr, Sherman nnd other Repnlilicnns, occasional ly taking brenlh by a ballot, which they knew would not elect a Speaker, they no find themselves about used np in the talk inff line, and orenare for earnest buttle. They, to the number of forty or flftv, sign a written agreement to prvent a vote tipon the plurality rule, even if it is necessary for them to keep up a call of ayefl and noes on dilatory motions till Mnrch 4, 1861. Some or these gentlemen have boldly ndmitted that they have siicnrd such nn agreement. and I believe no Southern Democrat hns disavowed connection with this secret at tempt to disorganize the Government. It will be perceived that we hnve here the first practical attempt to dissolve the Union, nnd that the .Northern Democrats in the House lack the courage to separate from these Disuuifiiists. The crack of the planter's whip is in (he enr of these trcmli ling menials, and they areafrnid to do what they would. Few of these gentlemen real. ly approve t tie course of the Sonthcrn Dum ocracy, some of them groan in anguish over the position which they are forced to occu py ty tliuir RlHVeholding brethren, but they arc ro feurful that unless the South is up- ptBsta sue will nominate some Ann-Don his man at Charleston, and thus secure the overthrow of the Northern Democracy, mat they dure not speuk out their reul sen timents. The compromise which Mr. Douglas is trying to make with his Southern friends also interferes with the freedom of will among his Northern friends in Conirress. This compromise is intended doubtless to cheat the Northern people who vote the Democratic ticket. The terms nre us fol lows : Inasmuch as tho Northern and Southern Democracy are at swords, points on me territorial question, Mr. Douglas proposes thut the question be referred anew to Ihe Supreme Court, and if that Court shall decide in favor of the Southern poli ticians, then the Northern Democrats will nnite with them in giving Congressionnl protection to slavery in the territories. The beauty of this scheme of reconciliation is this : it curries Mr. Douglas and his friends hnndsomely over the chasm which lies be tween this and the close of the next Presi dential election. The people of the South will be assured that the decision will be io their favor the people of tho North thut they will surely triumph before the Court : and when the election is over, if a Demo coret is elected, just as iu the famous Dred Seott case, the new Detuocrulio President caD in his iuaugural foreshadow the deci of the Court, as the new platform of the party in power, that Congress is iu du ty bound to give slavery protection in the territories. Nebraska at this time furiiHli es such a case which can be made up for Judge Taney nnd his judicial brethren. This is the iext step iu the programme of the great Pro-Slavery Democratic party. The debate during tho week lias at times been very excited, personal, and unparlia mentary. 1 he representatives of the South, who constantly claim the superiority of their peculiar civilization over that which grows out of "free society," certainly bio very careless of the specimens which they exhibit to the world of thut civilization on the floor of Congress. To ndopt tho role a bully seems to be the great ambition some of the so-culled uble men of the South in Congress. To reply to a damag ing argument by giving the lie direct is the Virginia mode of carrying on a debate. Air. Pryo.-gnvo i n example of this when replied to Mr. Hickman's unanswerable argument, and tilm-li made no reference whatever lo persons, "Your statement you to be lulse" This was all that the gallant Virginian oxild say, ami every Southern fanatic iu the House gave him frenzied cheers when he said it. It was everywhere understood here as a deliberate attempt to drag Mr. Ilicktnau out of Con- grees, where lie was au overmatch for the Pro-sluvery Democracy, into the ield of combat, where the bullet of an assassin might dispose of him, as it already has done Senator Broderick. Mr. Hickman, how ever, possessed the moral courage to declare that he wf uld not be drawn into duel fight ing by these personalities, and that a resort I hem wa-s no answer to his argument. The day after this scene occurred in the House, Mr. Carter, a new member from New York, came out very finely iu his own defense in voting for Mr. Sherman, and io defense of the general principles of the re publican party. An attempt was made by Southern men to frighten him from his speech, but the white-haired old man prov ed lo be made of Revolutionary stuff", for maintained his right to the floor free from interruption, and when tis regular speech was finished he put himself iu the bands of Southern interrogators, and tr uinphaiitly sustained himself and ihft peo uf the free states Ho was not content with doing this, but he proceeded to smoke the political dodgers in the House. He called upon the Southern Americans; to say they were not in favor of a Congression al slave code lor the territories, and they they Mere. He then referred to thu that his colleague from New York, Mr Hriggs, had been steadily voting for meu titer taiuing such opinions. He then show by thu admission of Southern Democrats the so called Douglas Democrats had been voting for men entertaining simi ultra views ou the question of slavery the territories. The facts which he so skillfully elicited furnished au abundant rea tou why he, an old Democrat, nnd elected an independent member of Coiio-re should cast his vote for Mr. Shermau, who a conservative Republican. Yesterday the debate took a new tnrn Mr. Shermau was the object of sever al most violent attacks. H-j was called once for a few moment, s when he de feuded himself with lofty eloquence, which the moment at least, put bis enemies to blush. The week's debate has closed In this man ner,"nd, so far as I can hear, the determi nation of the, Republicans to adhere to Mr Sherman, if need be, till the ith of March ia inflexible. Their reasons are ma ny and satisfactory, but I will only state of tbem."They will net abandon Mr. orierraan; llrst, because no other . Kepubli poywitbstsudlofr all tba contrary as- in to er . lo al er i Q it so ing to by the at a dom in ed all his to sernons or the Democrats, can command so many votes as he ; and, second, because ne nas been so infamously abused by Demo cratic speakers who now demand his aban donment. If for no other reason, the fact that Mr. Pryor dtmanlt that Ihe Republi cans shall drop Mr. Sherman and take up Corwiu, Pennington, or E J. Morris, fs suiiicieiuiy to justuy persistent adherence to their candidate. And here the contest stands. There can be an organization only through a plurality rule. The Southern Democrats will forci bly prevent a vote on that rule, "go there may be no organisation of this Congress and if there is none the Pro-slavery Demo cracy will be wholly repponsiblu for it.

TV .1 .. - I ... ... ... iy, xst-iavtare, out always retained a sin cere love for irginians; he was well known Washington, aud between them a mutu esteem existed ; as also with many oth distinguished Virginians. 'During the severe trials of our Revolu tionary war, Warner had free access toand through both armies ; and when, at the battle of GermantOAii, many Virginia offi cm and meu were taken prisoners, on hear ing or tbe event-, W arner, or his brother Daniel, or both, repaired to Virginia for ne special purpose ot visiting the several families of the prisoners, procuring money, linen, blankets, &c, as well as cheering news. Both oflicers and men were astound ed when tho two brothers arrived in Phila delphia with so many comforts for them. I meution this only as a trait of the genuine Quaker character, whether applied to the warrior or the slaveholder for all these oflicers were slaveholders. And yet the uaker, as every true one will, administer ed to them most affectionately when in ad versity. 'Now, friend Editor, to give an illustra tion of the private, and also present the true character of a Quaker Abolitionist, permit me to relate an anecdote of Warner MifU n several years before the Society of Friends adopted a rule of discipline, 'That would be a breach of unity to longer hold men in slavery.' Daniel Mifflin, of Accomac county, Va., the father of War ner, manumitted one hundred slave. Well, it happened, at some day or two previ ous to the munqmission, an officer levied an execution on one of them named Thomas, about fourteen years of age, a fine promis lad, for a recovery of a military fine of 12 orjClS (which Qnukerspay not), and, being prior to manumission, poor Tom had abide the law, and was sold and bonght Col. C , one of the officers taken at battle of Germantown, and administer ed to by Warner, as before stated. 'This, of course, was a severe trial to Thomas, to be thus separated from his brethern ; but Col. C was a kind mas ter, and Thomas was a faithful and favorite servant. Warner Mifflu visited bis father least yearly, and when there being but few hours' ride from Col. C 's, he sel failed to make at least a friendly call, which he always more or loss remember, Thomas. He would say to the Colonel: "Well, now, my friend, bow about poor Thomas he has served thee faithfully for some sis or seven years be is uow of age, bis bretherea are free, as ray dear fath er intended he should be; be cost tbee but some .15. Kow, my friend, doo'l thee thiuk he ba well paid thee X15, and like brethren set at liberty by falber, ought t free V : i , v.-,... ., as ' 'Well, well, Mr. Mifflin,' the Colonel would say, 'Tom is a good boy; he appears wen satisfied, and really I don't kauw bo i could well spare him.' And so ronc-h in this manner did the Colonel answer Warn er, year after year for some five or six years fter Thomas was of ngc. 'At length, when Thomas was some twanl v a a m r .wen.y -seven years ol age taniar aumin having spent a day or two with his kind and hospitable friend, Col c, - "nd family, renewed his old concern obonfpoor Thomas. "Well, my friend,' said Warner, 'I have heretofore at times taken thu lihorlw in speak to thee, I hope, nlways in Christian love concerning Thomas thee understands the merit of the case that it w m fail.. er's religious concern he should be free Now, my rriend, has he not amply paid thee all the purchase-money T and, if so ny not let him rare as his brethren ! May I not appeal to thy own iudirmenr, and gain solicit for his freedom ?' This was expressed by Warner in close, lovintr ear neatness so much so, as to awaken a little ne, perhaps, in the Colonel, who replied ; 'Well, well, Mr. Mifflin, you know how myself and family esteem yon, and how very hnppy we always are to see yon, but really, sir, I should be ple tsed if vou would in miu.-e waive any mention of Tom be is a goo.1, faithful servant, appears content, and, really, l don't know how we could do well without him ; and in future, I do trust, sir, you will be so kind as to waive any mention of concern abont him.' " ' 'Well, very well.' says Warner to Col C . 'as thou reonests. so it shall bo I will never mention the name of poor Thorn- as to thee, provided that before I go thou in permit me to once more see him and converse with him in private.' l,oi. c . of course, do itelr acmilesp. ed. Tom was called in. and l.-ff nlrmo wuh his young master, Warner. Well.' savs Warner 'Thnmo. T spoken to thy master since thou 'wast of age in regard to thy freedom, but in vain ; he seemeth disposed to retain then . a slave. This beinor the case. 1 aal-prl him for this lihcrty to see thee once more, that, as I could not accomplish thv freedom. I nigni. impart such counsel and advice to thee as wonld be of use to thee in thv fu ture walking through life, not knowing uiai i may ever see thee more. And now, Thomas, this my counsel is, that thou be honest and faithful to thy roaster, dutiful and obliging to thy mistress, and kind to their children ; and, above all, Thomas, love nnd serve thy Maker, doily pray to Him for strength to perform all thv dutv. and ever keep in mind that thou must die : and, if thou art good while here, thou will oc as happy hereafter as thv master can be. for oar Heavenly Father is no respecter of persons. And now. Thomos. at our partiiiff. let me take thee by the hand.' An affection ate shake of the hands took place. Warn er says, 'Farewell, Thomas, farewell.' But poor Thomas could not articulate a word ; he retired in a flood of tears. But now the most movinir scene of all : the rigid, unbending slaveholder, the warrior who had braved the tug of war,' very soon entered the room in an entirely subdued tone, being little better off for speech than poor Tom. At first he could only exclaim Tom is free I' After crossing the room two or three times. Colonel C repent- ed twice more 'Tom is free,' 'Tom is free!' and then proceeded to explain to bis friend warner that he had been walking in the adjoining room, and distinctly heard every word he had said to Thomas : that where as be fully expected he would have advised Torn to come up to his residence in Kent, and that he would secure to him those rights which his master so unjustly refused. lint when I beard your angel like advice to Thomas, in which mand my family were so teuderly recommended to bis duty and kindness, I said I must reciprocate his goodness; ray heart yearned toward yours; remembered you had administered to me when in prison, nnd ray heart said. 'Tom is free.' 'And now, Mr. Mifflin, write the manumission ; for though you are ready to leave us, von must, before you depart, now that lorn may joio his brethren in freedom from this day.' 'Ihe paper was prepared and signed : poor Tom was full of gratitude; nnd though told he was at liberty to go, he said : "No, no : I will slay till my master's crop is secured,' which he did, his master remunerating him therefore. there is an exemplification of the true Quaker Abolition.' Love can, and noth ing but love ever did, or ever will, accom plish a righteous reformation." ' To People of the United States. The attention of Christians and all lov ers of liberty is respectfully called to the following facts aud considerations : We, the undersigned,' residents of Be- rea, Madison county, Kentucky, ou the 23d day of December, 1859, were waited upon by sixty-two or the most wealthy and In fluential citizens of the county, who inform ed us that they had been appointed by the people to remove ns from the State, and that, if we were found within its borders t the expiration of teu days, they should expel us by force. We were charged with the violation of law, but told that the spread of anti- lavery sentiments (which we held) endan. gered their institutions. We were engaged farmers, artisans, teachers and ministers. maintaining ourselves by our own Industry, two oi us as ministers receiving a partial upport from the American Missionary As sociation,) with no heated zeal for any ism," but endeavoring quietly to promote the cause of Christ. We believed, and did not hesitate to declare, when tbe occa sion demanded, that slavery was a moral and social evil, which it was the duty of all goou men to oppose. We set ourselves gainst the spirit of caste, and labored to suppress all feelings of hostility between non-slavebolders and slaveholders, between slaves and masters. In all things wa sought wUdoin from above, and aimed to exercise that wise discretion which is especially ueuded by those woo bold uupopuUr opin ions. . ' . , By the testimony of slaveholders, many whom w reckon among oar personal friends aud well winner, our presence and labors bad so changed that part of tbe county, that It bes become as noted for th) ojirighi nnntinnt nf lie lV.l.t.. . ... ..,ur.ull.,a as u nsd once or ior norse-rscing and Intemperance. ve nao founded a Literary Ju.titntion which wa receiving a liberal patronage from all classes. The settlement at Berea was Increasing in numbers and importance, when, at the news of the Harper's Ferry foray, a won- uenui panic seized the people or the conn ty, which was increased by printed an nonncements, that it had been discovered that an insurrection was soon to break out in Kentucky, that a box of Sharpe's rifles directed to one of our "number, had been intercepted, and by otherdeclarationsequal ly false, until a perfect torrent of rage was stirred up against our community, already obnoxious because of its influence in favor of freedom. Honorablo men, many of them slaveholders, and the mass of the non- pie within a few miles of ns, opposed this noe, Diu were unabje to diminish its power. Findiniv themselves unable to check the rage of infuriated men, and that there was no protection for as by law, although we were not charged with the infringrnont of a single statute, they with perfect unanimi ty advised us to retire for a time, before the storm. Thinking it tbe part of wis dom to yield to the united request of our friends whose counsel had the greater i weigni irom me met that our departure would be to their pecuniary disadvantage, and learning from, various reliable sources that a rabble, beyond the control of the Committee who waited upon ns, were pur posing to take the lives of some of us if we remained, we believed it to be our dutv though in mid-winter, to leave the county. Accordingly we find ourselves to-day, with our wives and little ones, homeless, and separated from the people with whom ' we hoped to live and die. ITJ .1 : . . . u uuci mast; circumstances we feel c.nn. strained to address to you a few words. We oo not desire to stir np your anger against our persecutors, for we feel confideut that they know not what they do; nor do we ibii especially to ass yonr sympathies in our behalf, but rather that you consider ycur duty as Christians and patriots, to that multitude of other persons who in va rious ways are the victims of the system of slavery, There are still out.spoken anti slavery men and churches in the South, like our selves unprotected by law. They, as well os ourselves, have in vain sought the pro tection of magistrates and courts, and are daily liable to banishment, or as the alter native, death. Thousands, if not millions, are deprived or the privilige of free soeech on the subject of Slavery, because of that incubns which rests npou them by reason of the support given to thj? system by the Church and State. .Wa ask you, if you care for freedom of speech, or Christ in the person or his poor, to remove this incubus which is fast becoming a burden too heavy to ue uonic. It is a humiliating fact that even yet in the .ortb, some of the largest denomina tions or Christians are in actual complicity with this system of ontrage and iniiistioe They give to tho iniquity position, and bid it God-speed, by ecclesiastical fellowship. The same is true of many of the benev- olent associations. If ull tho churches and assooiations would treat slaveholdino- a they do other gross immoralities, soon re spectable men would cease to defend or practice the iniquity. It would die of dis grace. Albert Barnes has correctly said "Slavery could not live a single day out side of the church, were it not for the fact that it lives iu the church." Men at the North, then, have somcthinor to do with Slavery. They have lonir triven character and support to it by donations and associations. Let them brintr forth fruits to meet for repentence by usintr eve ry righteous means for its removal. Let no one remain silent. Christ is in bonds in the person of his, poor. Men in the North as well as in tbe South. can use another potent instrumentality political action. Let them repeal every enactment that in any way gives sanction or support to the system slavery is not a natural state of society. It lives only by statutory protec tion. Let this protection be taken away nnd it falls. Let the Federal Government be' pat in to the hands of tried and true friends of freedom ; the Federal offices in the south will be filled with men who will aid in the canse of liberty, and give facilities for the spread of truth and tbe administration of justice. The prestige of government will be on the side of freedom, and tbe incubus of a pro-slavery administration remove 1 from thousands, who uow are silent because they see no way of hopo. These thousands will then speak out the true impulses of their natures. Iheir voice will be like the vo'ce of many waters and their movements like mountain avalanches, irresistable. This foreseen fact but increase our de sire to return and preach the gospel of love to all, that the people may he saved from violence. In all instances where a gospel of love has beeo fully proclaimed, slavery has quietly passed away ; but wherever this gospel has been rejected, it has gone out in blood. Tbe call then is not for protection to the colored man alone. That would be suf ficient to enlist the teal of all good men. But the call is that you should so act as to give protection to white men also ; men who have gone there from free states to do good, and to thousands of native citizens who deiire protection in the freedom of speech, aud tbe full exereise of their con scientious convictions. If then the lovers of righteousness, north and south, shall at once do their duty, ec clesiastically aad politically, lost privileges will bo secured to us, freedom to the slave, security to tbe master and prosperity to all.
