The Earth is full of Thy Riches,

Our hymn of thankfulness and praiso,
I liai I huu hust given the huinnn ruco
So bright, so fair a dwelling-pluce.
That when this orb of rea and land
Was moulded in Thy forming hand,
Thy calm, benignant smile impressed
A Benin of ilea veil upon its breust.
Then towered the hills, and broa j and grecu
I he vales deep nutuway sank between,
Then stretched the plain to where the sky
Stoops aud shuts in the exploring eye.
And stately groves beneath tby smile
A row) on coulitient and isle;
Aud fruits came forth and blossoms glowed,
Aud louutal us gushed and rivers flowed,
Thy hand cut spread the billowy plains
Of ocean, nurse ol genial rains,
Hung high ihe glorious aim, and set
Night's cresceui ia her arch of jet.
Lord, teach us, while the nnsuted gaze,
Delighied.on thy work, delays
To deem the forms of 1 euuiy hero
But buriuw.H of 'i brighter sphere.

ile-roiling, grassy plain or prairie, which
mieichb8 westward e&me sis nuudied miles,
as the crow flies, to the fool of the Rocky
Mouutaius. The eastern slope of these
mouutains, for a distance of three hundred
miles north and south of a line run due
wrist f'Oui New York, Cincinnati, or St.
Louis, is drained by affluents of the Arkan
sas and the 1'laite, the Kansas and oiher
intermediate streams heading in the plains
a huudred to five huudred miles ibis side.
The great eoiigraul caravans to U hIi,
California, Oregon, Neveda, and ihe Min

in p oxiruity to the latter. For the first-
two or three hundred miles, thu water
courses are often deep and always pleuti-
iui; uua wueiever water, raus will wood
grow, iu spite of the desolating fires of the
pi all ies Uut gradually ibe brook-beds be
come shallower aud fewer; springs are
seen rarely and still more rarly ; tho thrifty
aud diversified forests of the lower Kansas

side ouly until at leugib only the detes
table Cottonwood most worthless of fair
s.& d trees is 6een, aud tbis at long inter

stuuted aud starveling Yellow Pines are
found along tho upper sources of the Kan

that this, with other trees, wus fur more

remote perhaps a century since but of

eight feet into the xniidy bed which the j
water had deserted and tonnd nothing

Passing westward n hundred miles or go,
you cross tbe northerly affluent of the Ar
kansas, (which heads further northward
than I ever saw laid down en a mad ;) and
this sircom also shows, quite early in Juue,
a perfect ly dry,, wide bed of course sand
for miles iu length, covered at intervals for
quite a distance wiib that wuiusu iuctusla
iiou 0' iffljicucence which ou so many
Western water courses pioclaiins the vicin

and ppriugs of seemingly delicious water are

thiifct-muddeued cattle were conswuuiiy

of more healtful though scantier nourish

The Pacific Railroad will doubllcs strike
the Platte near Foil Kerncy aud follow it
westward to its folks ; where 1 think it
will bend souihwesiward, either following
the South Platte to Denver or leaviug u
near the mouth of the C-chu ro Pondro or
some other Western tnbuiury, which it
will follow inio and partly through the
Rocky Mountains, till it interlocks with
the White r the Yampa tributary of thu
Ureeu River branch of "the Colorado. Tue
route up ihe only other coustderublo Wes
le.u ulllueut of tho South Platte knowu
as 'Lodge Pole Creek,' seems more direct
and facile on this side ; but it is opeu to
the muin objection of the North Platte or
South Pass route, tout it came the road
too tar north, making it longer lUun iUieed
be, aud takes it over the high aud d.flkull
ground, iuiersecied by very deep water
courses, which sepurules Fort Hi Uger from
the valley or tbe Bear River of Utah.
There ure of course difficulties to be over

Readers of thk Telegraph :
We hnve all heard of a "quiet on the
Potomac," and many comments have been
made upon if, by unthinking, misinformed,
people. Here on the Ilarpeth there is not
so ranch of quiet, although to day matters
have assnmetl ft Sabbath day q'lietndc; not
even an inspection to mar the tranquility
of repose and season of reflection. Aud
better than all, these Sunday resting spells
give the soldier an opportunity to write
let tors Look which ever way you will
there sits your lad with a shingle on his
knee, perhaps an upturned plate, busily
chalking down tho talk on paper to the
dear cue perhaps, the one above all price
nestimable. Or it may be to a mother
whose all of hope and joy he is, and whose
loss to her would make her evening of life
a chilling blauk, a woeful chaos of grief.
On the face of another scribe you may
note the glow of strong manly devotion for
the wife in the far off northern borne, and
the tenderness and truth of filial love on-
the open page of still another face. Such
is Ihe study of faces, tho lesson to be learn
ed from the tablet of each one's heart is
more difficult to get. Our private opinion
is, that many little romances could be read
from the heart histories of these letter wri
tcrs uud receivers. Those readers of the
Ashtabula Telegraph who fuel an interest
in tbe members of Southwick's Battery
could not much bettor please them thon by
writing letters. Of course they should be
kind and encounig ng ones, not hissing
with eoppcthead politics, or fault-finding
w ith the Administration, or any thing in
the least degree tuiuted with tieason. We
.re sure such will not come from Ashtabu
la, Luke, or Geauga counties, to this army.
But in this d,iy of our Nation's calamity,
ueh strange lliing3 happen. We are never
sure where tho sjrpeut will spring from.

June 14th, 1863. HARRY D—.
The President on Arbitrary Arrests.
Thp officers of 1 Ih C ippfrhesd meeting
at Albany transmitted to President
Lincoln a copy of the roolii'i n8 ad ni'-d
then and there, for his consideration. TIip
resolutions declare their purpose to sustain
the cause of tho Union and the Govern
ment in every lawful measure to suppress
the rebellion, and restore all the State nn
der the Constitution. All this is a mere
cover for what follow, which is a pointed
and severe censure of the President for per
mitting arbitrary . arretts, and especially
tbe arrest aud punishment of Mr. Vallan
digham. And finally thoe earnest patriots
call upon the President to restore Mr. Y.
to tbe liberty of which be has been de
prived. The President replies to these
rather nncourteoas criticisms and demands
in a kind and friendly spiiit, noticing their
assumptions point by poiut, overturning
them with his irresistible but homely logict
aud in fact completely vindicating his
course with respect to the arrest of sympa
thizers and the suspension of tho writ of
habeas corpus. He coucludes as follows:
Tbe name of President Jackson recalls
an instance of pertinent history After
the battle of New Orleans, and while the
fact that the treaty of peace had been coo
elide J was well known in the city, but be
fore official knowledge of it bud arrived,
General Jackson still maintained martial
or military law. Now, that it could be.
said tbe war was over tho clamor against
martial law, which hud existed from the
first, grew more furious. Among other
things a Mr. Louaillier published a denun
ciatory newspaper article. General Jack
sou arrested him. A lawyer by the name
of Moiel procured, the Uuited Slates Judge
Hall to order a writ of of habeas corpus
to relieve Mr. Lonuiller. Generul Jackson
arrested both the lawyer and tho Jddgc.
A Mr -Hollander ventured to soy that '"it
was a dirty trick." Generul Jcks.11 ar
rested him. When tho otlieer undertook
to servo tho writ of Inibeas corpus, General
Jack-ion ' took it from him, and sent him
awuy with a copy. Jluldmg the Judge iu
custody a few tl i y -, thu General tent him
beyond the limits of Ins cnc-tnpuieut, and
set him at liberty, with uu oid.r 10 rcmitii
till the rutiGcution of peace sboald be reg
tilarly nunouiiccd, or until the Biiiisa
I should have left the southern coast.' A
f . more eUpsed Uie raiili.ation of
- 1
the treatv of peace was regulurly auuoaii
ced, and the Judge aul others were fully
liberated. , A few days more aud the judge
called General Jackson into court aud fined
him a thousand dollars for having arrested
him uud tbo others named. Tho Generul
paid thu fine, und there the inatlor rested
lor nearly thirty years, wheu Longruss ie
funded piincipul uud lu.'crust. Tue fate

bled in this my nanve county, that, from
the days of my boyhood up to this bour, I
have been 'ranked with the , political party
known os the Democratic;' und I believe
iho time has never been known, from my
entrance into Its ranks till uow, thai I havo
eve wavered or been false to it. I am in
all things appertaining to the general pol
icy of the couutry, a Democrat today, and
ever hope to remain one, without mitiga
tion, without change, in all those great
p iuciples 011 which political parties divide.
But when a crisis of this kind Arises, it is a
principle of my Democracy aud I slill not
attempt to interpret other geuilemeu's De
mocracy for them that the first groat du
ty every man owes is 10 lus couutry, that
tbis is where the principles of bis party
oughi to lead him.
Although there is a President in office
that I did uot help to put there, and al
though iu all tinman probability I. would
not cast a vole for him lo morrow, yet iu
this grcut contest 1 eckuowlcdge him 1101
the head of a party, but as tue head of the
Government, us the Executive ollic-r of
the natiou. Cheers Aud, like a soldier
fighting in tho ranks, I hold it lo beuy
duty to obey him, my commanding officer,
in all things, without qnesiiouiug his p.licy
in this great contest. By and by I muy
have something, as a ciiizcu, to say on this
subject; but at Iho prcseut lime my duty
lies iu another directiou. It is true that 1
have differed with Mr. Lincoln on many
questions, but they are minor ones, aud
Mis is uo lime to cavail. It is uot whether
this or that man's lights have been iufriug
ed upou, or whether some cannou-wheel
has been run over v corner of iho Consti
tution, but the qiRS.ioii uow is, what is the
duty of every man to his Government in
this comest? L;l us first seillo with these
rebels, and, when we have done that, we
can begiu lo take matters ut homo i l baud,
and I hive uo doubt wo will be fully equal
to them.
Ilo then discussed tbo question of slavery
at considerable length. He ulleged that
as to its social uspect ho hud uo conceru
wiili it. Iu us political aspect, ho charged
it with being ut the bottom of the rebel
lion, lie traced tho course of parlies, the
progress of the demands of the South, their
linul disruption ot the Democratic party at
Charleston, referred to the peace Cougress,
.c, declaring that as a political power,
slavery died when the first gun was fired al
Fort Sumter. Of arbitrary urrests, he
spoke us follows: . .
But you have another objection to this
war, aud that is the matter of arbitrary ar
rests, us they are callci .ho arrest of cer
tain men who have not been content with
thinking treason, but have been talking it
rather loud. There have been about half
a dcZ3u men Juken dowu to Fort Lafayette
perhaps Mere is one down iu Dixie uow.

, L r- j -
I beeu taken without warrant in tho Consli
lutiou. Some legal monser bss-sttt down
and conned it ull over, and uot found any
thing to justify it.
He liui found that the fraajers of the
Constitution never expected any such slate
of thing-., und therefore nothing was put
into it lo meet these circumstances. Trea
son, il says, shall consist ofaii overt uct,
aud tulkiog is not uu overt act. li-ai wj
must not loi'gct the fundamental principle
of all Governments ou earth, which places
a lo-'ge discrettouary power in tho hands
of the rulers of the nation for cases of this
kind. The old legal mti.vm is Mat the
laws are silent in the pre;encj of nrms.
You hare very Imle cause to complain
here. If you bud been down South, I
think you would have had much more.
There is uo douot of ihe power of the Gov
ernment to protect itself, under any circum
stuuees. If you saw uu incendiary apply
the torch to your house, would you wait
until ' ho was caught uud convicted or
would you tuke a clu6 uud knock him down?
What tbe individual may do, Govenimpul
may do. It may say to 11s cntzeus, "You
are preventing tho enlistment of solders
In tho army; you are sowing dissensions
umong the people; yon are affording aid
aud comfort lo the enemy; therlo.e we
propose to pat you some pluce where you
! w m t
cau tain to yourseu lor a time." 11 m:s
power is not inhereut iu the Goverumout,
it is not worth a rope of sand; und tho
man who has tbe power, and does uot ex
ercise it, is not worthy of his place as a ru
ler. Applause
Suppose we admit that the Constitution
has beeu straiued a little: it is not strained
any further than old Jackson strained it
down iu New Orleans, wheu ho arrested
Judge Hall; and how we gloried over that
act; how we cheered, uud what bonfires wo
burned, when a lardy Government paid
buck the nnjust fine which the old hero hud
pai l, cbeeis Now, my Democratic friend
do not tuke that all back. I cau not do
it; upon my word I can not. ' Voices, No,
no, you are right Lot us culler say this
Govornmont is ail rig lit, in taking away
these elements of discord from among us, or
let us do tho other thiug postpone the
discussion of the question nil by aud by.
Is ibis a time lo be igbting the Govern

comes among the faithful? Would you

conditional Union men of this State Is Very
rnpidly settling dowu upon the basis ot'wi
mcditilc emancipation. Such is the ejftfres-
siou 01 uiut-teiiths of the loyal - nsiiers of

adds to the volume and weight of the testi
mony iu favor of such a policy. Ja.Wias
Lka these the popular mind iV p:!ii.-:o.t
rapidly, and rendered its conclusion. far in
advauco of those in power. Li the Stale
the peoplo are ready for the removal of
slavery now. Ar.d the people Bri richt.
Ihe popular instinct which recognizes sla
very, is tne root ot all our difficulties,! uud
its destruction as a prerequisite to a per
manent setllemeut of our uatiooal ..diflicul
ties, as correct. Slavery must go dowu.
It is a doomed ius'.itutioa'. Everything
eonspires for its overthrow. It is a con
demued criminal already on the ' way to
the scaffold.
But, we are told that tbe immediate ex
tiuctiou of slavery ia tbis State will be a
cause of great inconvenience to many slave
holders. Q iite likely. Bat the coutinn.
ance of siivery will prove a source of much
greatsr iuconvouionce to the whole people:
O.i the oue side is the temporary and vastly
exaggerated luconveieucus of a. fn tr.
holders, aud mauy of them disloyal at that
au 1, 011 the other, are tbe peace, prosperity
and welfare oT tbo great, misses of the
State. Which shall be consulted 1
Is ii nut time that the old rule of every-
thiug for the slaveholders and uotliiug foe
the eop'.e should " change ? Wo
think iiis. -Nobody in Missouri has
any interstt in . slurery except
a few slaveholders, while the great
mass of the people bare a direct aud - posi
tive mierrst ions overthrow. -. We believe
that the great mas of loyal . slaveholder
are themselves iu favor of immediate eman
cipation, The disloyal ones would like to
bavo slavery perpetual, or as nearly so at -possible.

Tbe truth of the matter is, slavery itd
