This nation has a fair and goodly heritage, Whose variety of soM, and climate, and pro ductions scarcely any other people can boast. Her saili whiten every sea, her flag is kndwn in very land. Her mines of precious and useful metals give an abundant yieldt her beds of coal and granite hills are no mean sources of wealth, and her innumerable rivers are crowded with the riches of her produc tion. The hoarse murmur of the northern lakes tell of her prosperity. The roar of the Atlantic on her eastern shore is responded to by the dash of the Pacific on her western coast. She is a great, a mighty a growing nation ; but with all her manifold advantages, with all her natural and acquired wealth, she has not even so much as one single acre of frte soil! Free soil! free soil amid the wilds of C'a lafornla, free soil in the wilderness of New Mexico! Belter first make Ohio free soil. Dettar have at least one City of Refuge with in, her bounds where the panting fugitive may be safe, not from the Avenger of Blood, but from the Enslaver of Man. Free soil in New Mexico! free soil in Calafornia ! are now the watchwords of a political party. Do its ad herents mean free soil when they say it, or do they only design making it free as Ohio ie free 1 free for the tyrant to come and drag back his escaping bondman, free for the man dealer to refasten the broken fetters upon his victim ! Such is not free soil ; and we alas ! can have no soil within all our borders that is truly tree, until slavery is abolished or the Federal Union destroyed. Graham's November No., is embellished with two steel engravings " Edith Mau rice" and "Supplication." The first is a fancy portrait, and illustrates a story by Arthur. For our own part we would rather look on the likeness of a real bona-Jidc per son, or on the personification of a feeling or passion, than a mere fancy sketch. " Sup plication" is exquisite- The expression of countenance and the attitude both silently tell of the spirit f prayer; and the moonlit hour, the placid lake and the dark rocks all harmonize admirably with them.

Whig gery seems determined to carry Ohio either by hook or by crook. It is pouring its stump speakers into the State from the South and from the East ; the former probably design ed lo represent Taylor's slaveholding princi ples, the latter to stand sponsors for his Vi- mot Provtsoism. from now until the 7th of November, political speakers and political documents will mightily abound, and will be scattered over the Slate by the Central Committee and Life Preservers of Taylor ism, and this, too, without money and with out price. We are sorry for it, for we don't like to be reminded of tho ugly things that were sent as a plague upon ancient Egypt, but we suppose it will have to be borne. There is, however, consolation in the fact that their efforts will ba " love's labor lost," for that Taylor will not get Ohio is just as certain as thai two and two make four; and this the Whigs will soon have to admit. But then if they choose to waste their breath and money in trying their luck that way, they must e'uu do it. We suspect they had a foreshadowing or presentiment of their de feat when they issued a hand-bill, calling a Taylor meeting at Columbus, with the fol lowing heading; " Go it with a rush, boys! Go it ' double-jointed ! ' Time enough lo damn boys, When we're disappointed." j i I ' i I : j ' Ex. Committee to of or Will meet on the 5th of November, at 2 o' clock P. M. at the usual place.

The Louisville Examiner. This paper which succeeded the "True American" of Cassius M. Clay, does not, as most of our readers are probably aware, oc- tupy the highest position on the Mount of Anti-slavery Reform, though it doubtless says as much against slavery as would be tolerated in Louisville, and as much as its conductors think it their duly to say. Their Views of the evil and remedy are not such as aro held by Disunionists ; hut the editors are able men, and do their share in producing the agitation which is now rocking this hn tton. Tho " Examiner"" was admirably eon dncted'by its former editor (John 0. Vaughn) and those who at present have the control of it (F. Cosby, John H. Heywood, and Noble Duller) will undoubtedly db-as well for the diffusion of anti-slavery knowledge. It is a paper eminently abounding in valuable statis tics, and any one who wishes to become ac quainted with the phase which is assumed, or rather is being assumed by Kentucky An- li-slavery, cannot do Better than pay s-J the " Examiner." The publisher savs: " I his paper has been in existence nearly a year and a half, and has been slowly ex tending iis circulation in the slave States. It is the ad vocate of emancipation in Kentucky, and has kept this one object constantly in vlew, seeking by calm reasoning, and bv the evidence of figures and facts, to show people of K-ntuckv the inanv irrievous osses they are obliged to hear in consequence of slavery. Those connected with the Exami ner have not espoused any one of the many plans of emancipation submitted from time to time, nor have they urged their own views in this particular, but have confined their ac tion to efforts intended to arouse the public mind to reflection on this vitally important subject, feeling sure that when their fellow citizens shall have determined to rid them selves of slavery, they will find a Way that a plan of emancipation, just, humane, and practicable will be devised and agreed upon, and that enough wisdom and courage will be found in this beloved old Commonwealth to carry it out siiccussfuly. Such a plan will, doubtless, be agreed upon at a meeting of the friends of the cause, to be held at some con venient point, shortly after the Presidential election, and will be advocated by the Exa miner w ith whatever ability it possesses. "The Examiner does not participate in par ty politics. It calls on the good and patrio tic of every party in the State to unite in one concentrated effort for the redemption of Ken fctiiny iiihii too mini ui oiuvbi). "The time is at hand in which the effort is to be made. The subject of Ihe Convention is beginning to occupy the minds uf all Ken tuckians, and it ie of the first importance that we be well informed on a subject that so vi tally concerns us. The conductors of the Examiner, therefore, call upon the active friends of Emancipation in Kentucky, to aid them in their efforts to extend its circulation, and Iruftt a hearty response will prove that the call is not made in vain." r i Slave Trading in Georgia. A correnpondent of the " Independent De mocrat," writing from Atalanta, Georgia says : When I came to this place, from Savan nah, I slopped at a fuggy little town, built on the South Carolina side of the Savannah river, called Hatnhurg, notorious as a "hu man market." The Slate of Georgia prohi bits the introduction of slaves into the State, fur sale; and ihe consequence is, Hamburg was built up just opposite Augusta, for the purpose of furnishing slaves lo the planters of Georgia. Augusta is the market lo which ihe planters of Upper and Middle Georgia bring their cotton; and if they want to pur chase negroes, they step over into Hamburg and do so. There are two large houses there, with piazzas in front to expose the "chat tels" to the public during the day, and yards in rear of them where Ihey aro penned up at night like sheep, so close that they can hard ly breathe, with bull-dogs on the outside as sentinels. They sometimes have thousands here for sale, who in consequence of their number suffer most horribly. While at Hamburg I saw "a drove" of these " human cattle," passing along through the street towards the market-houses. They had been brought up in the country, and were destined for Texas that Democratic addi tion to " the area of Freedom." They wero , I.. .i: . . .. l. .

Added to this was the lash of their cruel drivers, the gnawing of hunger, and other hardships usually expe- rienced in such a tramp, which had made them the most miserable looking objects ever saw. One beautiful young creature, who would in the land of freedom pass for white person, was among the number. She observed me gazing with attention upon her, and undoubtedly thought that I wanted purchase; and clasping her hands and fixing her tearful eyes upon me, with a look of the utmost supplication, she said : " For the love of God, massa, do buy me! I good cook, nurse, ironer, washer cheap at eight bun- dred dollars do buy me!'' I afterwards learned that they asked eight hundred dol lars for her, which was probably on account of her beins white.

The llrazihan Steamer Pro videncia.cominandtd by a Spaniard, has late ly brought into this p'nl from the coast, a full cargo of the unfortunate Africans, 1200 in number. It is reported that she originally look in 1500, but the horrors of their pent-up condition were greatly augmented by constant ly recurring deaths amung them, resulting in the loss of not less than 300, it is said, before arriving here. "There is much and loud-expressed dis satisfaction. among many residents, especially foreigners, at the continuation of this inhu man traffic by Brazilians, in spite of preten ded efforts, in concert with others, on the part of the government, for its suppression. The general belief is, thai if there is not, ere long, some energetic action on the pari of this go vernment, correspondent with its stipulations for preventing the introduction of slaves from Africa, serious consequences will follow.
