VKUY RUGLE. tation of tho arrival of a son-in-law of tlio Judge, who was to bo the agent in carrying her lioek to slavery. A lung exper'once in tha habits of slate owners, slaTCcatchcrs, and their apologists, 1ms satisfied me that neither tlio word nor tlio oath of such is to be believed in any case where tha free dom of a human being is at stake. Ho may how" ever bo innocent in this regard, and wo need hold liiiii only to that which is admitted. The plea that Luanda became so fiendish, the family wore afraid of their lives on her account, 1ms a tery sus picious look in connection with her admitted pro vious good character, and the one she sustained when I knew her. What but tlio treatment she was tucciviiig, transformed the gentle nurso into a fiend, admitting this report of her to be true ? Mr. Harlan says "one night this girl left and Mrs. McLean was happily released." I con testify if this bo bo, that to all appenranco the joy at the separation was mutual. Singular, however, it seems, that tlio Judgo nnd his family should have endured tho perils of their situation for a moment' when the remedy would hato been so easy, by ending Luoinda away, without compelling her to resort to the painful measure of slipping down a rope, as a part of tho means of her transportation. The charge of ingratitudo now brought against lier for merely claiming her natural rights, evin ces the animus of the accusing party. Tho at tempt to blacken her character adds nothing to the presumption of innocence in her accuser, in the minds of thoso who have impartially observed the various means employed by tho oppressors to con tinue their domination over this long suffering people. The defence which has been put in goes far towards corroborating the girl's whole story. I take no pleasure in holding the conduct of Judge McLean up to the publio as meriting repro bation. His official character as I'ost Master Gen- 'oral inspirod mo with a regard for him which I 'should greatly liavo preferred should have remain ed unimpaired. But justice is due to tho weak, and the oppressed, as much as to tho influential, and the popular, and especially docs the cause of Freedom require that all violations of human rights shall bo remembered against their perpetra tors. To mo, nnd to tho slave, by whoso sido I dc ire ever to stand, it can mako no possiblo differ ence whether John McLean docs, or does not, re ceive the nomination of tho Republicans for the Presidency, but in the education of tho American people into tho possession of a conscience which ball render slavcholding impossible), it is highly important that the personal connection of nil dis. tinguished characters with the Bin of slavery shall be publicly and persevoringly proclaimed. A. BROOKE. MARLBORO, Ohio, May 2, 1855. MARRIED AT A SPIRITUAL GATHERING. Peter T, Grat and Amanda M. Lewis appeared at a circlo on tho 13th. ult., appointed for tho purposo at tho house of Thomas Gray, I'onn township, Jay county, Iowa. A notice of thoir in tention being road at a public meeting tho week previous; there was quito a largo company con vened on the occasion after very appropriate sipg. ing by tho parties and others, they then aroso to their feot, joined hands declaring in the presence of God, his angels and this Assembly, that they took each other to be husband and wife until death should seperate them. A very appropriate certificate provldod for the occasion was road and signed by the parties. The whole performance was grand and imposing. Communicated HIGHLY IMPORTANT FROM KANSAS; LAWRENCE UNDER MARTIAL LAW— MILITARY ENFORCING THE BLOODY CODE. "Tho Westport correspondent of tho St. Louis Republican, telegraphs that Dr. McKee, Sheriff UonkV physician, wroto to him on the 2Glh ol April, that the patient would recover. No fear was entertained that tha wound would prove fatal, and Jones was resting easy. "Colonel Sumner arrived at Lawrence on the 25th, with his wholo command, nnd threatened terrible vengeanco against thoso who had fired into the tent of his Lieutenant. IIo was very stern it his boaring and demands, nnd expressed a deter mination to reduce tho people to obedience. Roin.s bos and Keeder charged the act on the pro-slavery party, and maintained that they had instigated every act or vio!enc. Colonel si'mner 6aut that the charge was utterly false, and that if Governor Shannon would leave the whole matter to him, he could very quickly settle it, and teach the restless and headstrong people a salutary lesson. LATER. "The correspondent of tho Si. Louis Democrat writes that, on the 25th of April Sheriff Jones was removod from Lawrence to Franklin. Ho was accompanied by Stringfcllow and Whitfield, who pretend luat tucy Unro not stay in .Lawrence ; though the town wns in the possession of troops ont there to force the free State mon to obey the laws passed by their Legislature 1 A CUNNING TRICK, Stringfcllow went before tho Congressional Com mitteo of Investigation, nnd demanded the privilege of procuring counsel and examining certain wit nesses in relation to tho commencement of the Kansas troubles. Mr. Howard, Chairman of tho 'Committco, said that it would be impossible to ; grant such a strango request, as the oliiect tor 'which the Committee camo, was, not to establish an inquisition, but to examine tlio condition of affairs, and to investigate the alleged election ' frauds. There was no time for delay ; nnd if tho 'Committee constituted itsolf a Court of inquisition, -it would defeat the object of its mission, without 'making any progress whatever in the business. MARTIAL LAW. "Another correspondent of the Democrat writos 'under date of the 20th, that Sam. Lnttus. Dumitv Sheriff of Douglas county, has prepared writs for the arrest of more than one hundred citizens of Lawrence, charged with disobeying tho territorial laws. A military forco will be kept at Lawrcnco til. all the proposed arrests are made, and till the prisoners are conveyed to Lecompton, w here they are to be confined till their trial. Colonel Sumner has declared that ha will, at all hazards, reduce trie people to cueuicnce, a PUBLIC MEETING. "A nicotine of the free State men was held on the evening of the 25th of April, at which, sneech- .) i i ,. 1 i i i i , ircru uuuvereu vy iouuur, iooinson,anu Others, in which tho shooting of Jones was severclv con demned. Robinson offered a reward of five hun dred dollars for the arrest of the guilty parties. It jsauiu linn ma teat in wiiiuii oones was snot, was guarded by troops when tho act was committed, and that no free State men were permitted to come near it. This circumstance is a little suspicious. It would seem probable that some hired tool of -Shannon or btnnglellow, tried to take the Sheriffs life, in order to cast a stigma upon the character of the tree state men." li-icnda. is to A MEMBER OF CONGRESS QUOTING SCRIPTURE. Hon.

Will renders please refer to the passages f Pittsburgh Journal. INCIDENT IN THE SENATE. The Washington Correspondent of the New York Examiner, a religious weekly published in New York, gives the following curious story of a recent incident in tha Scnato : "Nor is this tho only instance of getting up a reputation in the Senate by tho learning of others. An amusing instance ot tins sort occurrod no lon ger ago than Wednesday last, when Mr. Jones of lowa mado lus 'maiden speech,' which ho was al lowed to make, in reply to Mr. Harlan's speech, entirely out of order, but inasmuch as it was his maiden speech, and ho wanted to mako it then, the Sen.ito graciously granted his request. Tho Hon. Senator cot on very well with read ins tho speech at first, but soon it was apparent he could wl read his own handwriting. Tho manuscript was very nau, and at tunes tlio senator was quito unablo to make out what it was. This recurring so often, excited tho surpriso of Senators, when soon it was whispered about that tho Bpecch wns not his own, but'thq Rev. Mr. Davis's, the Senate Chaplain from Iowa, who was brought hero by Mr. Jones, probnbly to do him this very service. Tlio Senate Chaplain stood behind tho chair of the President of tho Senate, in great trepidation at tho halting manner in which Mr. Senator Jones wns getting on with his speech. Ono of the Senators who was let into tho secret cf tho paternity of this speech, went behind the chair of tho President, nnd coming up to the Rev. clergyman, said to him: 'How iB it, Mr. Davis, you allow your Senator and friend to make himself so supremely ridiculous by such a speech as he is now delivering?' The Rev. Chaplain, reddening up to tho hair, stammered out: 'What have I to do with Mr, Jouo's speech I I don't see him very often 1' " A Ciu-Rcn Militant in A nvsiNNiA, The fol lowing is from the Triesto Zeitung, of tho 7th of April: "A Christian by the namo of Theodoms has conquered tlio Kingdom of Abysinnia and nbolish ed polygamy and slavery. A letter from a protest ant missionary, Dr. Krapf, confirms this news and adds, that all foreign missionaries have been exiled by him. Only tho Roman Catholic mis sionaries, who had possessed great influence in this country, had been exiled. They were the objects of general dislike among tho population, whom they insist upon baptising again, (though christians for over 1500 years) and the native priests also were required to bo baptised. The protostant missionaries have great confidence in this Theodoms, (if wo are not mistaken tho Impe rial Austrian Consul in Chartum, Dr. von Henglin is personally acquainted with him.) He is mod erate in eating and drinking, and has but one wuo ; no is pious, attentive at church and 13 very charitable towards tho poor, priests, usonks and strangers. lie is a brave soldier, prepares himself tlio plan ot the battle, nnd alter, oiten rushes, personally, into tho thick of the fight with his Abolitionism in the East. Tho Trosse d'Ori ent of Constantinople, says: "An event of a cer tain ucgreo of gravity has taken place at Amasia. A slave brought into the town from tho frontiers of Georgia wns incarcerated in tho village of kouizkeui, occupied by Circassians. Tho slave was a Christian of tho Armenian church. The bishop of that church demanded that he should bo s't at liberty, but this was refused except on pay ment ot a sum of money. After a good deal of discussion, tho bishop, seeing that thcro was no other moans of -Heeling his release, paid ,C50 sterling, nnd tho slave was given up to him The prelate then appealed to the members of his church to contributo the sum which ho had paid, so as to emancipate tho slave; but thev refused, on tho ground that slavery is abolished in Turkvy. We are assured that a foreign consul has demanded tho slave from tho Pasha of Amasia, and has also demanded that the man who sld him shall bo punished. One erf the Austrian Lloyd's eteanieis which recently left Constantinople, had on board a female slavo sent to Samsoun. Tho proprietor of tho slavo presented himself to demand her, but she refused to disembark, saying that slavery is abolished, nnd that she meant to remain free. As he persisted in her resolution bIio was carried buck in tho steamer to Constantinople." Dr. Bi.edsoe, of tho University of Virginia, has published a volumeon Slavery. lie contends that tho sciipturnl injunction, "servants, obey your masters," implies a corresponding right in the mas ter to the services of tho servant therefore Slave ry is right. As tho Now Testament says "do good to them which hato you," the doctor no doubt con siders it right to hato good Christians. As it is also commanded to "Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that dospitefully use you" "unto him that smiteth thee on one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also." The receiving a blow on one cheek makes it a Christian duty to tender tho other; this necessarily implies a right to 6trike again and the fact that a thief has despoiled you your cloak gives him aright ("n divino right according to Dr. B.) to your coat nlso. Such logic taught by a professor of Mathematics in tho university of Virginia! The Issue. Tho Now Orleans Bulletin, the chief commercial and political journal of that city, and supporter cf tho Filluioro ticket, says of tho campaign : "The man is as blind as a bat, and hopelessly stupid who does not vee that there is one overshad owing question which overwhelms and swallows up all other secondary issues; the fundamental and vital quest ion of slavery, lilink at it as we may. complicate or confuso it as much as possiblo, the fact cannot bo disguised, that slavery is the one real element of party divisions, and to organlxe a party with the expectation that the members of it North and South would unite and harmonizo Upon this main point ot dispute, is only short ot moou-struck madness." Confessing: the Truth. In the St. Lsuis Re publican, of April 30th, there was a lottor from a Westport correspondent, from which we make an extract for the gratification of our Democratic it must be born in mind that Westport in Missouri, nnd its citizens have no more right lioia oiuco in Kansas, than mtizens ot Cleveland have to hold office uudorthegovornmentof Indiana. correspondent says: "Gen. Whitfield seut a dispatch by an express ridor to Col. Boone, of this place. The latter received it this morning early, and immediately left in a hack for Lawrence, with Mr. Jones, the wilo or the unfortunate sbontr. It sincerely hoped that she will got there bofore the brave fellow dies." And this, is the Democrat ic sheriff who was sent by a Domocrulio governor make arrests in Kansas!

Whilo many of tho free StatC9 have enacted shameful nnd brutal laws, under the influcnco of the stunt of caste, it has been remarked that JVow Enirlaud wns uu execution in this matter. But this is not true. Connecticut, no longer ago thnn last year, refused to amend her Constitution so that tho dusky descendants of soldiers in tho con tincntal army miirht be rccouniscd as voters. Mas sachusetts has tho honour of possessing much cleaner statuto books; nnd last year tho Legislature lorccd jsoston to rccogmso our Common school system as eommon.and put an end to casto schools. Still, there is in Boston a too frequent exhibition of this menu prejudice. If Boston does not de scend to the level of Now York and eject from the omnibusses men of Inch chnracter like tho Rev. Dr. Pennington, there nro still among us people who see nothing unchristian in sucli acts, loll lustrato this matter. Only a day or two since, a coloured gin, ot this city, and hor sister, lrom an other town, seated thempelvcs at a tnblo in a con foctbnnry saloon in Court street, nnd proceeded to order some refreshments, when they wero scorn fully informed that they would not bo wnitcd upon and tho girls were constrained to leave tho place with suppressed indignation, while tho insolent spirit ot tho whito scorners glowed on their laces in ugly wrinkles of contempt for "niggers." It may bo ndded that tho girls in question are nearly white; that llioir characters and manners nro irre proachable. They nro both highly respectable members of n church in this city. Those who, in this case, despised nnd insulted them are their in feriors. At this samo placo the colored penplo of uoston buy annually some thirty or lorty dollars worth of confectionary for their Fair; and Mrs. C, a colored confectioner of Belfast, Mc, buys three or four hundred dollars worth of confectionary yearly cif this same Court street confectioner.

FEMALE RIOT IN CATTARAUGUS COUNTY The Jamestown (New York) Journal gives the particulars of a novel riot which occurred at East Randolph, in Cattaraugus county, on Fiiday evening.tho 11th inst. A party of the most respect able ladies of tho place had assembled at a 'sur priso party," at tho rcsidenco of Hon. Benjamin Chamberlain, -when it was suggested that a tavern kept by a man named Wheeler was an intolerable nuisance, by reason of tho liquor dispensed there and they resolved to abato it. Bofore they arrived at the place of attack, tho landlord, having got wind of the movement, had secreted his lipuors and barricaded his doors, his wile had provided a rupIv of hot water, to irii-o ttm assailants a warm bath. Nothing daunted, the feminine stormors broko open tho door.and nl- tiiougn mo tomes ot not water did some execution rushed upon tho foe. The landlord took refuge in tin garret, but he was bound, and taken toward toe creeK to be converted into a "cold-waterman' by dipping, but ho finally succeeded in breaking his bonds nnd escaping. The women then returned to his houso nnd de molished his iucs nnd casks of lionnr. nnd ln win. dows, and were about to make a similar onslaught upon two other establishments, when the enemy saved themselves by a capitulation. Tho women justify themselves for resorting to these extreme measures on the ground that the landlord contin ued to sell to tho brutalized husbands of a portion of them, despite of entreaties, and that they could obtain no other redress.

THERE is no longer a question, or a doubt in tho minds of those who nro best acquainted with the advantages tho Cleveland Wool Depot offers for tho sulo of Wools, of its importance aud practica bility. .Located, ns it if, at the outlet of the ereat wojI- growingWest, boing of easy access to wool-grow ers, nnd merchants, aud within twenty-four hour s ride of the most distant manufactories of New England, it posscses great advantages. Manufacturers (excepting those who aro engaged as speculators in wools,) speak in the highest terms of this system, nnd tho many satisfactt ry letters wo ore receiving lrom our wool-growing frionds, have stitulated us to increase our cffoits to make this house what it should bo a safe nnd reliable chan nel for tho sale of their wools. It has surmounted all tho difficulties and oppositions that could well he brought against any cnte.-priso by a class of speculators opposed to it, nnd it now lias more and stronger recommendations than ever. We havo spared no pains nor expense iu making am ple arrangements for all who may wish to nvail themselves of the advantages arising from this manner of grading and soiling wools. Merchants, and wool-growers, who wish to realize on their wools, on delivery at our Depot, can be acccommo datcd with liberal advances. If desired, sacks will be sent as heretofore to those wishing to send us their wool, and WOOL TWINE for tying op fleeces, will bo furnished at from 13 to 20 cents per pound. When several in ono neighborhood wish us to forward sacks or twine, we prefer sending to one address. Our customers in Illinois, and the West ern States, will find that ordering sacks from us will snve them much trouble, and insure the safe anivnl of the wool here, as our sacks are all num bered, and stamped 'Cleveland Wool Depot,' and after being filled by consignors, will require no other marks. We hope for a liberal patronage, our charges arc low for handling and selling, nnd we promise our employers that our individed attention shall be doveted to their interest.
