He com menced by saying : "We, in Ohio, mav well be proud this day that our sovereignly as State has been maintained, by vindicating the Bovereicrnty of Kentucky." (Applause.) He then denounced in good round terms,, the ab alitionisla of Ohio spoke of his own person al courage, aud his deteimioation to do his duty. He did not claim that he had in thi aatt done anything more than his duty. MS. FINNELL' S SPEECH. Mr. Finnell was next called out. He said that though Mr. Robinson claimed no credit far doing anything but his duty, yet in doing that.be had well merited the commendation in the good book, of Well done good and fsith- fit servant." ( Applause.) He then said he loved the Union, and that it was far dearer to him than it was two hours ago. (Applause.) You may talk as much as you please about the chivalry of Kentucky, I tell you the salvation of Kentucky and of the South, and the contin uance of our domestic institution, depends entirely upon the continuance and integrity of our Federal Union." ( tremendous applause. J MS. (JUNES' SPEECH. Mr. Oatnea said, "I'm ten thousand times obliged to you. gentlemen, for your diligence in preserving the lawa and carrying them out ; but I am no speech maker, Mr. Flinn will speak for me." Jacob Flinn then said he could assure them that no mercenary motive actuated Mr. Gaines in pursuing these slaves. It was a pun matter of principle with him, for they had cost him mora money than would boulder that whole street with woolly heads. THE ASSAULT ON OUSSEPORTES. At it was getting dark and the crowd began to disperse, our reporter then left. While he had been standing in the crowd, with his pen oil in his hand, he frequently heard auch re marks at, ' see mat d d abolition reporter'" " What business hat he over here from Ohio?" but thought nothing of them. He had gone two or three blocks from the Magnolia House toward the River, when he waa suddenly struck behind. Ha turned around, but waa immedi ately surrounded by a orowd, struck by a num ber of persons, and knocked down. One re spectable looking man remonstrated with the arewd, but with no effect.

Home has a claim for tbem found no where else. The harsh asperities of nature are softened, and the heart is moulded by the associations to love and mel ody. I will defy a lover of children, birds and flowers, to be a bad man, The heart that can appreciate and love them is too fine and refi ned a texture to entertain a bad motive, or to prompt a bad action. Low, gross and sensual actions, are the result of low, gross and sensu al associations in infancy and youth. If parents then would have their children lovely, beautiful, respected and intelligent, so let them make home beautiful and lovely. Akron, Jan. 1856. L. V. B. A Medal to Rait, the Ruffian. The people of Eastport, Mississippi, on the receipt of the intelligence that Rust had assault ed Houses Qauxar, immediately held a meet ing in order to raise money to procure a gold medal which they intend to present to the Ar kansas bully. The medal was engraved and sent to Mr. D, B. WuanT, representative of the first Congressional District in Mississippi, who was delegated to make the presentation. We have heard of rewards of merit, and of rewards of services : but thit it, we believe, the first inttante in which a bully waa ever presented with a medal for striking a weak and half-blind man without giving him a chance to defend himself. The medal cannot beintonted at a reward for ttriking Horace Greeley ; for any ruffian might do the tame and there would be no end to the medals : it mutt be intends i at a reward for the bravery displayed on the occasion, for the heroic cour age which inspired Mr. Albert Rust, and bore him ip during the exciting moment. Coming, at it doss, from the cititent of another state, we are forced to the conclusion that the tlare owners consider Mr. Albert Rust, of Arkansas, aa the bravest and moat chivalrous man in the South, Wa have no disposition to ridicule the South ern standard of bravery ; for it it already low enough to excite astonishment ; but we tbink the ptvfie of Beftpxwt wwmiited eeiions fSSUai J .U-:-l ....... . r - "WE UWIOH OP THE STATE!

But as this appropriate se lection was not msde, and as the speech was not delivered, we may be pardoned for imagio ing what it would have been. He would have said : "Sir. hv a iliananaiin. r .

"In an hour when the fortunes 'seemed darkest, and when the of slavery courage of e.l is omer men was snasen. you, sir, invoking th sal m w smuss oi Heaven on your efforts, assaulted the fiercest and most malevolent of our foes. 'Mindful of the lessons of prudence which you had learned from your parents, you commen 'oed the terrible combat with the caution of 'one who was conscious of the claims of his 'country on his precious life. You excited no 'suspicion by your manner. Your adversary was not aware of danger till it feel upon him. 'A just Providence, in punishment for bis man- uC.'d crimes, bad weakened his sight, so that he did no ?ee you till your fist descended up on him. Before he bad time to recover' from -his surprise, you repotted the blow. He reel ed under the stroke, and, as if in defiance of his power, you struck him again without giv ing him an opportunity to resist. "lou had beaten the arch-enemy of slave- 'very ; you had achieved the proudest victory of your lift; you had established an imparish able reputation in the law-abiding and Bible 'loving South ; yon had struck Horace Greeley 'with your fist. Any other man would have been satisfied . but you, like lb holy warri 'or spoken of in the book of inspiration, deter mined not to put off your armor while your enemy breathed. Following swiftly in his footsteps, and this time armed with a trusty 'club, you renewed the perilous fight. He was utterly unprepared to resist the fury of your attack and staggered beneath your well-di-'rected blows. His arm was bruised, his head 'was cut, and his spectacles, with which he had 'impiously sought to cheat the judgment of 'Heaven, were broken in pieces. And had not 'envious fate interposed, and brought to the 'resoue of the wicked man arms which were toostiongforyou, we might this dsv rejoice 'that out beloved country was freed from the presence of the great mischief-maker. ' And now, sir, allow me to present to you HI lis testimonial from the pious citizens of E ast port. It commemorates an event of which you may well feel proud. Mississippi is proud 'of you. Arkansas is proud of you. The whole South is proud of you. Your praises shall he 'sounded wherever the facly institution of slave ry is cherished, and by the voices of those 'yet unborn. May you live to win other 'medals, and may your arm be strengthened, 'so that none of the wieked advocates of 'freedom shall ever be able to prevail against you. Clev. Leader. Kite-Tails and Cook Talis. The Ohio House contains at least two char, acters, distinctive and marked. One is the especial champion of the rights of the People the oppresaed and down-trodden masses. A tall, straight, whiskered cadaverous city gentle man, intensely Frenchified by travel in foreign parts and red republicanism, he is the orator of the Assembly gifted, learned, exuberant in words and fancy, with a very tlight dash of e-gotism- He mounts tbs tribune after the fash ion in the French Chamber of Deputies, bows gracefully to the Speaker, risea to fall purpen dieular, looks around with an air ef " I am Sir Oracle, And when I ope my lips, let no dog bark I" and with great unction pronounces "Rsfre- SSNTATIVSSl" The other is a plain practical, bluff old sea- dog from the country, honest, earnest and sharp set. But ho knows the ropet in the House at well at on the Pacific, and can spin a yarn or strike the harpoon anywhere. This char acter had a bill before the House on its final passage, bis own bantling which be bad watch ed as the Pole-star, and on which his benevo lent heart was act. The city representative moved to recommit it for amendment, and har ragued as usual. He boasted of hie deep pen etration into the profound, his sagacity, and practical knowledge on all subjects, and took occasion to poke fun at the limited sphere and unpretending acquirements of the rural member He said the gentleman lacked imagination, but thought "that by the close of the session ha might become a very respectable kite to iy oYsrbnrn yard," The orator t down eelf, THE COHSTITUTIOH OP TO IBM..- Satisfied, and tk ,.A ..I. -- -" L a - . ihn o""-j rjtcieo usnes ruuwe, aea to ataae sack talee ewearmg qeid . were he ant etrietly temparate aad gea. 1 pw.,.haWe by state U of the flute Courts, rT" T ,n "" h" hbiu- H " woaM place , person twice in jeopardy tor the ..J,l! !,elBlj eon'"d,rW mW-coelreryto the eor.aut.Uon of Oh,o ere the objections urged to hi. bill by lb.

P. Chase, the Governor of the State of Ohio, who was present as a guett, was treated with less consideration than was due to his high character and position ; and any imputation of discourtesy to him under such circumstances, would be a stain on the fajr fame of our city ; therefore, 1.

A Noble and Devoted Woman. The un happy wife of the miserable Movrob, who re cenvly met his fate at Charleston, in Coles Co., Missouri, addressed a letter to him, a short time before his death. It adds another to the record of faithful women : Charleston, Feb. 12, 1858. My ever dear hueband : How miserable you must be. My heart aches for you. I have not given op yet I still have hope.

Littler, Flowers, Hume,' Haines and Mills, reported back with out amendment, the bill introduced tome time since, by Mr. Flowers, prohibiting State Courts from exercising jurisdiction under the Natn raliiation laws of the United States, and recom mended unanimously itt passage.

State Journal. k Few Apology for Shwy. We suggest that the following be printed by way of appendix to the Rev. Dr. Adam's next edition of " South side view of Slavery."

It is a shield to the virtue of the white woman. " So long at man it lewd, woman will be hit fri l" , nciun loose woo are lorcea to occupy a me nial position, bsve ever been, will ever be most tempted, least protected ; this is one of the evils of slavery ; it attends all who are in that abject condition, from thebeautiful Circattian te tht table daughter of Africa. While we admit the selfishness of the sent.ment, we are free to declare that we love the white woman to much, we would save her even at the sacrifice of tht negro would throw around her every shield, keep her out of the way ef temptation. ', Such are the effectt of Negro Slavery upon the individual character of the white race.'' An Ac count Closed. The triumphant election of B. F. Wade to the Senate finishes the political programme as laid down last fall. Never in the history of political parties has there been such an over turning at in Ohio by the last two annual elec tions. The arm of the people was raised in its might, and it struck down political sinners, doughfaces and traitors. The voice of Free dom spoke and the political slaves of southern task mastera hid themselves away in their dens. Republicans, see the victory you have won ; give one cheer for the past : solemnly vow that for the future the same spirit of conciliation, the same forgetfulness of personal and political prejudice shall prevail, and rest assured a fu ture, illuminated by the brilliancy of your late conquests, will guide Ohio on to an unexam pled prosperity and an unclouded destiny.

Music serves to make home pleasant, by engaging many of its inmates in a delightful recreation, and thus dispelling the sourness and gloom which frequently arise from potty disputes, from mortified vanity, from dis content and envy. It prevents for the time at least evil thoughts anievil speaking, and tends to relieve the minds of both performers and hearers from the depressing effects of care and melancholy. Voung people need and will have amusement. If innocent and improving a muse meets be not provided at home, th.y will seek it elsewhere. If they find places more a greeable to them than home, that home will be deserted ; and thus (he gentle and holy influ ences which ought to.encircle the family fireside will be in a great mtasure lost.
