.When other friends around the aland,
And other eyee upon thee saw,
tWbe. others warmly deep thy hand,
And fently whisper words of pralee.
.Tbea think of me ; and breathe a sigh
That I cannot thr plassure abara,
Bat let no war bedim thins eye
Nor salneei cluod thy brow to fair.
When happiness around thee fling
Har lovely mantle light and free,
When tome toft voice moat sweetly staff,
Id iong ef richer melody.
Then think of me ; for I most tread
Alooe tbs weary path of lift;
Vooe witnessing the tears I abed,
None cheering me through toil and strife.
But, oh! when sorrow's mingled eup
Wth thy trembling lip it pressed,
And joy and lore are crushed ; end hope
Hat AVd and left thine aching breast.
Then think of me ; that once t friend
Was thine ; whom fortune't smile or frown
Could never change ; whole prayers ascend
For thee, before the "great wu,:e Throne. ',
And if the "King of terrors" come
To thee, to call thee firm away
Te seek a belter, brighter home,
lu relmsof pti.-e unclouded da.
Then think of me ; and breath a prayer
That we may meet in heaven shore,
Where pain and sorrow, grief end care
Shall yield te joy and peice, end lore.

Mr. Robinson, the United States Marshal,
being loudly called for. took a posihon on the

crowd gathered in the Street below. 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

but thought nothing of them. He had gone
two or three blocks from the Magnolia House

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

'Mindful of the lessons of prudence which you
had learned from your parents, you commen

'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.

uC.'d crimes, bad weakened his sight, so that
he did no ?ee you till your fist descended up

"lou had beaten the arch-enemy of slave-

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

' And now, sir, allow me to present to you

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

'so that none of the wieked advocates of

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

unanimously adopted i
Whereae, At the recent festival in this city,
in commemoration of the birth of fPashington,
the Hon. 8. 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

sentiments :
(From the Mleeouri Democrat. )
Fery lately a pamphlet has been freely cir
port made to the Platte County Self-Defen
sive Association by a committee, through B. F.
Stringftllow, Chairman '' In that Report, on
page 30, occurs the following atrocious and in
famous paragraph :
" Negro slavery has a further effect on the
character of the while woman, which thould
commend the institution to all who love the white
race more than they do the negro. 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.

Mcsto it Hoik. 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
