V- 1 admit that (he Republican party it re-
tfjasibi for the action of the leglal.tlu.re, and
thi ia an additional reason, with me, why we
should laks such action in the preuiitei at
will receire the sanction of the people of the
Bt'te. but I believe they will most likely ap
pro our course if we do jutlice.
I would do nothing which will demoralise
or disorganise the republican parly, unless
impelled bv a sense of duly to the Stale, for,
in subordination to that, do I hull my allegi
ance to any ana every pany, l relieve not
only that iho Republican party hat accomplish
ed much of good in the part, but that in the
future, the welfare, the honor and the true
glory of the country are indentified with ita
perpetuation and its liiumpk. If there waa
cause for its original organizttion, that oause
til 1 exitis in undiminished force. It had itt
origin in a new devttopement of democracy,
at is cropped out in the Kansas-Nebraska
Bill, Thit waa not pra-slavery Democracy
run mud, at tome supposed, but pro-slarery
in full flower, or rather, 1 should say, bear
ing legitimate frait. And the aud.ioiiy, the
falsehood and treachery in which that bill waa
coaeeived, and which triumphed in ils passage
is about to culmiuate in tlt establishing of
slavery in that region which our fathers
thought they had secured as a heritage of .free
dom. Every indication points to this result,
with unerring aim. And Ibis question seUled
and that region secured to alavery, the incom
ing aduiicislratiou will be disembarrassed and
free to engage in its career of slave halting
aggression in another quarter, 'a caieer fully
foreshadowed in that brigand document, the
"Ostend Litter." Its only check iu its pro
slavery aggressir- policy, is the Uepublican
party. And I deprtcale any action on our part
which will divest this party, whose great ele
mental priceiples are truth, justice, honesty,
right, of half its power, which bv lowering ils
standard, will weaken it boll! on the publio
confidence and ti e public heart. If it would
avoid this, it must avoid all collusion with
public plunder, and all sympathy with public
fuunaerern, and preserve itself intact from po
itical corruption, in no other way can it be
trus to iu mission and fulfil the hopes and
redeem the promises of its fi lends and foun
ders If it now, in the gristle of its youth, shall
fall into the embraces of its avowed enemies
and folse friends, and be guided by their
'treacherous counsel, its history will soon
nave been written, its decay will us more
rapid than its growth. But on its ruins some
other organization will arise, which uill b true
to the demands ot tho age, and will illustrate
ita living ideas af justice, of pi ogress and o

PRESIDENT OF THE CLUB
Colimdus, 0. March I Oth '57.
Mbsfr. Editors: On Saturday, the 7th inst,
the bill to provide for the establishment of a
Reform School in the State of Ohio, presenud
by Mr. Monroe of Loram Co., was read and
considered in committee of the whole, at which
time Monroe made a brief explanatory speech
in favdr of the hill. His sneech contained
some very appropiiate appeals to the honor cat-;
culated and intended to induce the house to !
pass the bill. The probability it that the bill
will pass; some of the more prominent features 1
of the bill there shall he a board of j
commi6sioneis who shall exercise a general su
pervi ion over the Institution, that said institu
tion shall be located in th country ronne place
near the centre of the Stale as theio may he
land enough got to make a farm sufficiently
Urge to give iaoor at any time to all the in-
mate tllat nay iir way there accordinir
Ii - 1 Ti.. l lift .1
to law, The bill also provides that the land so
bought shall not cost over twelve dollars per
acre, it is desirable lo get such land as have
but little improvements in the form uf buildings.
This institution is designed as a place for juve
nil offenders, and a place where they may be
taught better things than to offend against the
law. It is not with the young offender as il s
with the 0I4 and hardened criminal. Whilst
it is exceeding difficult to work a reformation
upon the individual who say have indulged
in any vice for the grester part of their life, the
young and nea beginner in error may bs
taught and restrained with comparatively little
labor 01 exertion, and wherever we can do the
most good there we should labor.
A bill has been introduced in the hours
to sell out the entire interests of the State in
all the public works of the State a very good
proposition in the opinion of many g00d men,
It will be opposed no doubt by many, and par
ticularly tluie who desire to have the manage
ment and control in some way or other of the
publio works, and who as a general thing here-
loforehaye defrauded and cheated the State ;
and the probability is that it will ueverbe much j
bt(er, man is but man, and it is too true that !
men are too nearly alike upon a certain prin
ciple, (I presume I will be understood.)
The house had passed a bill prohibiting the use
of the county jails within the State for the im.
prisoning or confining of any person qf ihe Uni-!
ted Statet who it aoi charged with the
mittion of crime; this law will apply 10 fuiri-

in any manner endanger Ihe peace of the Ter

I derive ray appointment, to pursue this course
of policy. The true interest of the people ol'

personal matter, and resented by cursing Gov
ernor Geary and spitting upon him, with the
supposed intention of killing himi if hd gave
him the chance bv resentinz the insult. The
coolnes and self-possession of ihe Governor un
doubtedly saved his Ufa. He passed on witL
