J3v c " THE UNION OF THE STATES AND THE CONSTITUTION OP THE UNION" VOLl.HK 25, NUMBER 31. CARROLLTON, CARROU MONTY, OHIO, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1857. WHOLE MIRER, re Miscellaneous Reabing. THE PLUNDERIN080F THE TREASURY FACTS FROM THE RECORDS. Tito lU developemeots relative to tbe manage meat of tbo Treasury of this State, are bat tit finish to the series of frauds and pluoJerings which Lave disgraced tbe administration of tbe Locofoco party in Ohio. They show that corruption is not confined to oSa or two department, but that it extended to almost every branch of the State ser Vice. Let ua for a moment refer to facta which have become a part of our history. For a series of years prior to 1856, the Locofoco parly had entire control of all branches of the State government. Under tbe biennial system there was no session of the Legislature in the win ter of 1854-6. During the year 1855 the officer of Stale should have conducted tbe affairs of gov ernment with the appropriations of the previous year. But, with a presentiment that this was their last grab at tbe Treasury, these men squsn dered the people's money to an unprecedented amount. By reference to the official reports tbe following facta are made manifest: Tbe total amount of expenditures of 1854-5 beyond tbe appiopriations, and which were of course totally unauthorized, was 8617,378. It was in substance and reality a debt of that amount contracted by tbe Locofoco officisls.and was thrown upon tbe Republicans to pay. Our opponents had spent the money, squandered it, stole it, used it up iu various ways, and we were left tbe privilege of coming in and footing their bills. The details of this expenditure are given in the message of Gov. Chase, January 5th, 1857, and in tbe report of tbe Auditor of State, and are as follows: Disbursements of 1866, to pay debts incurred prior to Nov. 1 6, 1 855. Superintendence and repairs of ca nals. Nw State House. Doafand Dumb Asylum. Blind Asylum. Columbus Lunatic Asylum. Dayton Lunatic Asylum. Newburgh Lunatic Asylum. Payments for Swhu's Revised Stat utes. ha retired, and suleequent developements have bown that he took from the County Treasurers in tbe last boon of his term, about 9550,000 more than he baa ever accounted for to tbe people of tbe Stile. We present this record to the people of Ohio for their consideration. With all these difficulties and debts thrown upon us by the men who had squan dered the money, the affairs of the State have been well managed, and every interest carefully guarded . The total amount of taxes levied last year, as shown by the report of the Auditor of State, was 9-944,997 97 less than that of the family, and kindly treated, because a faithful and estimable domestic. This conduct on their part may have been, and probnbly was strangely mis construed by Lcefner. Tht murder cf Francisca Lcefner. The manner of the murder of Mr. Jjefner by her husband is wrapped in mystery, although it appears she was either strangled or amoibered. No one knew of the fatal act nntil the door of tbe room occupied by Mrs, L. was forced, and her body half nude, and her face discolored and livid, was discovered upon her bed. What tbe unfortu nate woman suffered on that fearful night from bcr demon husband, no one can tell ; but tbe lone liness of the hour, her inability to obtain aid, tbe terror she must have endured, the horrid manner year previous, and the taxes of this season will be 0f her death and tbe mystery that surruunds it, less than they last year. The actual expenditures call up a picture no tragedy upon the stage could for 1856 were $380,665 71 less than that of the Hj" ' T,,.e lmtfnfoa need,( not l, gf .' . . . cued here: s-ive on v the circumstance to a think- lArr ..1 1.

We call upon our friends in every section of the State to lay these facts from thi mcobd before the voters and tax payers of Ohio. It is essential that they should know them. The idea of calling back again to places of power and trust, a sot of men who have so miserably mismanaged the business and plundered tbe Treasury of tbe State, will not for a moment be tolerated by the honest and iudustrious masses, when they see and know tbe truth. 0.

The Alleged cause of the Murder. Lcefiur and bis wife bad both been employed a, domestics in the bouse of Mr. Horton; the for mer for nearly two and tbe latter for three or four Tl.v often quarreled, and Lcefner was m Ibe habit of abusing her, which rendered him dis- KL, . the fa-nilv of Mr. U, wlio repnmanu- J v,;m tm his conduct. Lcefner had married bis wifo,formerly Francisca Koabler.about nine months Among the host of siecUtors at the late inter eating ceremony at Bunker Hill was Mr, Wlilis. who has furnished to his paper the Home Jour nal some glowing descriptions of the impressive scene. As was natural, bis swelling emotions found expression in his most felicitous msnner, as the annexed excerpts from his second letter will exemplify: "My last letter told you of Mr. Everett's elo quenceon the seventeeuth; and you will easily couCeive that it was like a sea bird's toss upon the waves ater a storm, "with the swell on, to sit and realize the "Pt ai:d its associations after such .tirrinir of patriotic memories. The military band followed after withasolems march while tbe stat ue was unveiled, tie heroic mfirble telling Us own story to the multitude as the superb canopy nf tWs was slowlv drawn aside. And I retiiem- - , her to have seen nothing in my life more dramat ically effective. It warms a statue wonderfully in to expression to have ten thousand eager admi lers gazing at it with the same feeling at tue instant; and I must own to a thrill of emotion very strange under that multitudinous magnetism. I tried to say something to the friend at my side, but could uot; for there is a gate somewhere be tween heart and brain that proves too small some how for tbe passing of a thought ten thousand strong! Why should these best throbs of our whole existence so choke off the most emotional gift human utterance? Tell us, oh, Agassis! "While thus powerfully impressed, by eloquent speech and eloquent marble, with a representation of the men we haie had, it was both apt and grat ifying to see, upon the stage before us, in the elo quence of life and reality, a representation of the men we have got . Fifty of the most distinguished gentlemen of our countiy occupied the seats of boaor upon the platform, and I studied their phys tognomies with very great interest. "For fino studies, artistically speaking, tha tculplor would hove chosen two heads nearer to the speaker Mr. Masou'e, of Virginia, and Mr, George Peabody's both men of large stature and full person, but alike remarkable also tor tuaimas Bive nobleness of feature that 'cuts well in marble.' Ou opposite sides again, and next to those gentle men. were two younger men, whom it was impos sible not to classify as you saw them within reach of each other, a pair of intellectually model heads of indomitable firmness Governor Garduer and Speaker Bank3. Then theie was the embodiment of th Pilgrim ideal in the apostolic and scholatly features of the President of Harvard; and there was the large-hearted humility of a Howard in the .,v0,l 11 ii naanla and self forcetful air of the munificent Cooper; and there was Robert Win throp, with his inheritance of the air gubematori al; and healthy Burlingame, the well-woven trip licato of fun, fluency and fire; and Col. Aspinwall, l. Wnllinotnn lookincr veteran who was chief tUU v""'!- o marshal of the day; and the straightforward and prompt President of the Bunker Hill Association, Mayor Warren, wh -, as tue oecenaani oi me ue io in marble, was the occasion's proper spokesman known Senator from Virginia, my cariosity was naturally increased his position, before that audi ence of seven thousand, ( very nearly at aa odda, political and sectional, of on to six thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine,) being mm of rather formidable embarrassment. He arose and 'tepped forward to tbe table,and I io vain scrutinize! hie features, retting very near to him as I did, for any trace eilher of composure or defiance. II m calm c e made the circuit of the pavilion, while be collected bis thoughts for reply to a summons wholly unexpected. "Of bis speech, in giving tbe substance, the re porta make an imperfect representation. The tln- eucy, the deliberates ol accent, the dignity and well balanced measure of tpiUit and ruytm admirable under any ciicumtlancca ia an extem pore speech were li-re even rurious in their per fection. But it was in the air and besrinz of the man that his conscious quality of soul, M in stinctive will, character, acd purpose were most eloquently eipressed. Of intellectual repose, and of the calm c -urte-y of in inline kept habitually in training, bis whole pretence was the type un deniable . Dignity so absolutely lauiuess, bom of mien and tone fine as it would b with tbe most elaborate study and preparation was, in this critical impromptu of the Virginian Senator, very remarkable. "And of the young lady ol seventeen, wno sai within a few feet of Mr. Mason, (if 1 my be per mitted to say 80 of apparently tbe same stock and breeding,) let me venture to record also my impression. "By accidental detention of her father, a grand son of Gen. Warren, Miss.

Intelligencer. JUDGE LEVITTS OPINION. fW The equality of the negro as contended for by the piesect Fusion party, will, if carried out, amalgamate the races and make this a gov ernment of Minks and Monkeys. Its legitimate faults are well illustrated by a case in point, which we take from tbe Chicago Times. Plaindea'er. One of the legitimate fruits of tbo Democratic Party is illustrated iu tens of thousands of cases in tbe South io tbe shape of one-half of tbe mu latto population, who are the offsprings of the Ius1 of their masters and their masters' sons. Hun dreds and thousands of instances are known of . ..u;n d.eir cliildren into slavery, ouch masioio Democratic politicians as the late Senator Butler, nf South Carolina, and Richard M. Johnson, ror merly Democratic Vice President, have had chil dren bv their own women slaves. Rev. Dr. Ross. is another instance of the amalgamation of the white and black race as carried ou at the South. In the Democratic State of South Carolina the fact of a white mao's having a harem of negro women and mulatto children, is not considered a bar to his admission to good society, or what they call good society cjown there. These are stubborn facts, but locofoco politicians have a happy faculty of blinding their followers in regard to the truth of the matter. To prevent such a system of amalgamation, illi cit amalgamation, from spreading, is one of the reasons of the Republican party tor opposing me I rec ti is sot our purpoa to comment at larga Judge Levitt's opinion. But it may U of sorrios to point oat the defects of that opinion, that tbey may be thoroughly examined by the younger members of tbe Bar. 1. Ia the first place, Tha Judge dcaa of, for he could oot, say that tbe United States Courts can take men from the criminal juridictijo of th State Court. U proceed upon a different ground that tha habeas corpus issued by th State authorities was illegal, and therefore the Deputy Marshals bad a right to raiist it. I. To arrive at this, he goes back, and inves tigate all ihe preliminary proceedings; ia other words trying both parties, which w bold, und r t simple writ of habeas corpus is, at least, stretch ing jurisdiction. S. But, thereby to crown tbe whole, be ssys the Stat Courts have no w right to issue a writ cf habeas corpus fir a prisoner ia custody of a United States officer. This argument, on this point, we report for the sake of reference: Without a critical notice of these eases, it may be sufficient to remark that the doctrine seems now to be settled that State Judge h no jurisdiction to issue a writ of habeas corpus for a prisoner in custody of an officer of tbe United State, if tbe fact of such custody is known to him before istue- ng the wiit. And it is well settled, that if upon the return of tbe writ it appenrs that the prisoner is in custody under the authority of the United Slate, the jurisdiction of the State Judge is at an end, and all other proceedings by him are void. In tbe case of Sims, reported in 7th Cushing's Rep. 285, the Supreme Court of Massacbusets de cided, that in all cases "before a writ of habeas corpus is granted, sufficient' pi obable cause must be shown, but when it appears upon tbe party' own showing that there is no sufficient ground prima facie for his discharge, the Court will not issue the writ; and again the Court says: "It is not granted as a matter of course and tbe Court will not grant the writ of habeas corpus, when tbey see, that in the result, they must remand tbe party." In the case of Noma vs. Piewton and others, 5 McLean 92, Judge McLean says, "I have no hesitation in saying that tbe judicial offi cers of a State under its own laws, in a case where an unlawful imprisonment is shown by one or more affidavits, may issue a writ of Aaoea! corpus and inquire into tbe esse of detention. I he learned Judge, it will be noticed, has reference to an imprisonment under the authority of the Uni ted States, and decides as tbe condition of which a State Judge may issue a writ of habeas corpus, that It shall be first shown by sffidsvit or otherwise, that such imprisonment is unlawful. And he holds, that when it is known to theJu ige, that the imprisonment is under a law of the United States, bis jurisdiction ceases and all fiumer pro ceedings in the case will be coram norejuatce. On this, we remark that there is a mistaken idea at the bottom of this. What does a writ of habeas corpus relate to? It does not relate to tbe conflicting jurisdiction of CoutU at all. It relates the rights demandable of course, and has no rela tion whatever to tbe respective jurisdictions of tbe State and Federal Courts. It is a writ which an imprisoned citizen has a right to demand of any Court, and which no Court, has a right to reiuse. That tbe Gevarnment of lb9 United States is par amount, in its Iwrilimate Constitutional functions, f mism not to be denied. But, is all that the ministerial officers of United SUtes assume to be their functions really so, not to be inquired into! Are citizens of Ohio to le kidnapped, and no ouiry made into tbe fact by State Courts.' We think not, and they who undertake to mantain that doctrine will be likely to find full employ, meot for both their beads and their hands. Cm. Gazette.
