was expected and wished lor by the Demooracy in
very quarter of tho oountry. But now that his
triumphant eleotion has plaoed him again upon
the theatre of action, it is to be bor.cd that the
Demooracy, Leoompton and anti-Lecompton, will
heartily rally to the support of the Administration.
Let the past be forgotten, ite animosities healed,
ite errore nd wrongs forgiven, and, united, let
the party present a firm and bold front to Seward
and hie bloody programme, as set forth at Roches
ter. To successfully meet the onset of Seward and
Vie triumphant Black Republican myrmidons, it
. trill require all the will, all the strength, all the
united and cordial action of every part and parcel
'of the Democracy.
But, while counselling unity and harmony,
Tirgidia'is not unmindful of the great questions
that are yet unsettled wi'.h regard to slavery in the
Territories. Virginia Bees, that though the consti
tution recognises, and the Supeme Court sustains
tier right to carry slaves into a territory, yet she
also remembera what Judge Douglas so pointedly
brought to light in Illinois, that this right moy be
Tendered null and void by the non action of the
Territorial Legislature. While Virginia recognis--et
no power that can compell a Territorial Legisla
lure to enact those lawa nocesHary to protect the
constitutional rights of slaveholders, yet she does
'hold that Congress has the right, and is in duty
bound, to protect slavery in the Territories, until
the people of a territory, when on tho eve of form
' ing State government, may decide tho question
'finally for the future State.
"This question is one above tho platforms of par
ties, and must be met and decided, constitutional
ly in favor of protection, or unconstitutionally
gainst it. It cannot and mu.t not be compromised;
if the Cincinnati platform does not provido for th'iB
'question it must be made to meet this issue.
"This question of protection to slavery in the
! Territoriee will have to be met, and the South
will demaud her constitutional rights; these rights
re recognised in the Conetitution. asserted in the
Kansas Nebraska bill, admitted by the Cincinnati
Platform, and have been snactioned and adjudicat
ed by the Supreme Court j and with this array of
authority, the South will demand the legislation
necessary to render valid the rights so amply rec
egniied by the paity, the country, the Uongrose,
'the Supreme Court and the Constitution.
"The right to reclaim fugitive slaves was given
by the Constitution ; the Northern States refused
'to legislate for tho practicnl enforcement of this
constitusional right, and Congress was compellod
to provide tho legislation necossary to the usefuli
nets of this provision. So is it with regard to
slavery in the Territories There is no power to
ccerce a Territorial Lrgi.-diiture to do its consti
tutional duly, and Congress must supply the leg
delation withheld by the de'elict Tenitory.
"Intervention for protection is a fundamental
principle with the South, and a wiser nor better
' remark never fell from Gov. Wise than the fol
lowing extract from his Illinois letter :
.... " Protection in the Territories and everywhere,
to U rights of person and of property, in accord
ance with the rights of tho States, and of the
Constitution and laws of the Union." Uero, then,
may be found Virginia's declaration with regard
to slavery in the Territories. To this she is Con
jlituliunally entitled. Sim asks uo more ; she Kill

the Portuguea authorities seir.ed upon French
vessolontho African coast, culled the "Charles

Trade under pretence of transporting voluntary
laborers to the French Colonics. The Frenoh
government resented this as national Indignity
and as Portugal is weak, teems to havo succeeded
in compelling the restoration of the vessel and
extorting an Indemnity for the act.
A telegram, dated Lisbon, October 23, laya
This morning, at seven o'olock, the ship Charles
et Ooorges was restored, and the captain, Rousel,
set at liberty. The exact amount of Indemnity
that Portugal has engaged lo pay on the rcquisii
tion of the French Government is not yet fixed."
The manner in which the question was settled
had called forth the Indignation of the English
press in genoral.
The Time, In a loador on the subject, eayt :
"Never was the voice of truth and justice more
arrogantly overpowered by mere superiority of
physical lorce ; never were the rights of brave
and independent nation more recklessly trampled
upon : nevor was the understanding upon which
tho affairs of Europe since the peace of 1815
have been conducted more entirely cast to the
winds ; for Portugal is left hut to fold her arms
and record her protest ngainst the violence to
which she has boon forced to submit. For Europe,
there remains a precedent fraught with danger."
The Times thinks a second most lumeUnllo result
of the affair is that France can n j longer bo count'
ed upon as among those nationa who are bent up
on discouraging in every manner the continuance
of the slave trado.
The Daily News says Portugal is entitled to the
sympathy of all civilized powers, and the censure
of Europe will deservedly fall on the Emperor of
the Froncb and his Ministers.
The llonikur officially confirms the statement
:bat the "Charles et Georges" had been restored
and ber captain liberated.
The latest arrival from Europe states thnt the
French government has resolved to abolish this
method of obtaining laborers. For the sake (rf
humanity it is to be hoped this report is cor.
For the Bugle.
You may make my grave wherever you will,
In a lowly vah or a lofty hill ;
You may make it among earth's humblest
But not in a land where men are Moves.
I could not sleep if around my grave
I heard the steps of a trembling slave j
His shadow above my silent tomb
Would make it place of fearful gloom.
I could not rest if I heard the tread
Of a cofilo-gang to the shambles led,
And the mother's shriek of wild despair
Rite like a curse on the trembling air.
I could not rest if I heard the lash
Drinking her blood at each fearful gash,
And I saw her babes torn from her breast
Like trembling doves from their parent nest.
I'd shudder and start, if I heard the bay
Of the bloodhounds seizing their human
prey ;
If I heard the captive plead in vain
As they tightened afresh bis galling ohain.
If I saw young girls, from their mothers' arms
Bartered and sold for their youthful charms
My eye would flosh with a mournful flame,
My death-paled cheek grow red with shame.
I would sleep, dear friends, where bloated
Can rob no man of his dearest right ;
My rest shall be calm in any grave.
Where none calls his brother a slave.
I ask no monument proud nnd high
To arrest the gnzo of pussnrs by ;
All thut my spirit yearning craves,
Is bury me not in the land of slaves.

MARLBORO, Nov. 15, 1858.
Friend Robinson : Yesterday morning at 10
o'clock, the friends of the sluve in this vicinity, as
semblcd at the Town Hall, to listen to the minis
tration of that Gosperwhioh will "break every
yoke and let the oppressed go freo." Kotwith'
standing the rough roads nnd cold weather a good
ly cumber of men and women were there, all aox
ious to hear the earnest words and stirring songs
of our friends Hale and Clemmer, of Mogadore, and
Ileighton. of Edinburg. Lewis Morgan was ap
pointed Chairman, and a song was sung by Messrs,
Hale and Clemmer, after which Austin Hale ad
dressed the mooting in a brief but able speech
showing that the slaveholders rule us not only po
litically and religiously but also intellectually
through our literature. Not only do they make
the Tract and Bible Societies and Sunday School
Union, bow in silence to their will, but our school
bookt must also be free from every taint of aboli
tionism. J. S. Clemdier followed in a speech of nearly an
hour in length, which was so full of earnestness,
eloquence and truthfulness that no one, I think,
could have listened to it without feelling a deeper
loathing more bitter hatred of that system that
consigns four millions of our brothers and sisters to
an oppression, the darkest the world ever taw. "It
is nut enough'said this eloquent friend of the slave,
"that you sympathise with the bondman. It it not
enough that the tears course down your cheeks at
the recital of his wrongs. All this is well, but it is
not enough. You must act, you must remember
those in bonds, as bound with them." He closed
by appealing to all to consider this subject, to take
it home with them, to investigate, to think and act.
Reuben Erwin made a few remarks upon the slave,
holding position of the Republican party. Joseph
Heighten then sang song, and made some exoeh
lent remarks touching the relation of the Churches
in the North to slavery. After two more songs
the meeting ijourned to meet again in three
We foel truly thankful to our friends for their
presence and their words. We feel tbat good
work was done, aud we hope that yet more may
be accomplished in future. We should be glad to

COLUMBIANA, Nov 17, 1858.
Friend Editor: Miss Frances E. Watkins, in
speaking of her meetings in this vicinity, by the
language used, would Implicate our eitizent In bad
Slid ears, "we had two meetings In dolumbl-
nil a; On Wednesday, we held another
meeting, which was interrupted by a manifestation
of rowdyism, but passed off without much aeriout
injury," fto.
Tho meeting which was interrupted was held at
Cool Spring t the rowdies are bound over tj Court,
t answer for their conduct. Miss Watkint, no
doubt, used this langunge inadvertently, and would
desire its correction. I am happy to have the priv
ilege or saying for our oitizens, that there has ncv
er, to my recollection, been any disposition mani
fested here to interrupt moetings In this way. Her
meeting in this place was well attended, and very
orderly. Whether it was beoauee we bad rot
heard an nntl-slavery lecturo for a year, or because
of their character hers wat universally ap
provod. I am eorry to find on my return home, so little
active interest manifested on the part of the good
citizons of Columbiana for Radical doctrine. The
result is, Republicanism holds complete control.
All is quiet. They uppear to be sure of a safe ar
rival to perfection in politic!. I hope Radical
AntrSlavery Lecturers will not go round us, for
they may be sure of a good audience, acd a quiet
and orderly hearing, and it is not too much to hope
that after a good rest, the good people may be in
duced to mount a step higher,

After a Slice or Mexico. The President is

has it) towards Mexico. One of the Democratic
letter writers at Washington says :
"The next great question will bo the Mexican

in his Richmond speech and South Carolina letter.

The Dred Scott Decision in Minnesota. In
the following wo have a practical illustrution of
the fuct that slavery exists North as well as South.

Another "Dkku" Cahe. From the Lake City
Tribune, published in Wubusbaw County, Minne
sota, and abl edited by Rev, D. C. Slerry and A.
A. Norwood, Exq., it appeurs that there lives a
man, hut a lew miles from Lake City, known as
Dred Nelson n black man outside, but whiter in
side than many who sneer at a black skin and wink
at black hearts and deeds, who went there twu years
ago and made acUiin un the Half Breed Tructud has
made several hundred dollars worth ol improve
meutB un the plaee, and in doing so expended
nearly his all. Mouths ago, somebody, with a
heart a good deal blacker than Dred's kin, "scrip
pied" Ihe.poor, defenceless black man, and "enter
ed" his land at the U, S. Land Office. Under
the recent act of Congress, permitting actual set
tlers on that tract to pruve up their pre-emptions.
and outer their land, poor Dred Nelson sent his
declurutory statement to the U. S. Land Ofhce'for
that district. It was returned of course nu
oiume to ine local lana omcers.j witn the state
ment that it would lot be received, inasmuch as the
supreme dictators uf our land had settled it that
his skin was a little tuo dark, aod it would not
pleasn the lords ul the lush if he were allowed the
privileges of a man. And. now poor Dred hns no
remedy no help, lie is stripped, robbed or his
all and loft to perish, "White men are not bound
to respect any rights which he may claim."
Vorily, this is severity and wickedness. A
righteous God will nut fail to visit upon the author
of such injustice a just retribution. If there be a
hell lur the wicked, let the tramers aud suppurtera
uf such an infamous law, together with the villain
who plundered the pour man of his home, receive
the warmest attontion of their father the Devil.
Can Democracy hold up its head and look such
facts in the face, and ask Northern froemen to sus
tain such an unjust policy. Chicayo Democrat,
How the Dkeo Scott Decision Works in Ala
bama. A gentleman who resided a long time in
Mobile, Alahama, and owned large estates there,
afterwards moved to New Orleans, and finally
went to France with his family uni there dii.d.
Before his dcitli he conveyed tu his children his
property in Alabama by deed. lie did this tu avoid
any uf the ditliculties that sometimes attend wills,
and supposed he hud secured his property tu bin
children beyond a peradvenlure, but the Courts ut
Motile, have decided thut the deeds are void bo
cause the children-are within three degrees of Af
rican decent, and because they were nut born in
Alabama, but in Now Orleans, while the father
was residing there.
We take the following from the decision of the
Court, as given 1 y Chancellor Keyes, aud reported
in the Mubile Times :
"Every peeson born without the jurisdiction of
a State is an alien to that State, unless such person
come within some exception to the general rule.
The natives of Louisiana wuuld, therefore, all be
aliens to this State but fur the Constitution of the
U. States. It does not give privileges and immu
nities in the State uf Alabama lo any of the inhab
itants uf Louisiana, except citizens of the United
States. Negroes are not, and cannot become citi
zens of the United States. Dred Scott vs- Sanford.
19 How., 303. The fuct that free negroes owe al
legiance tu their native State, or to the Federal
Government, cannot affect the question of State
alienago in another State.
The general rule is that aliens may take land
and hold it and enjoy it until office found ; but that
is true only of aliens who are not forbidden by the
policy ol tho State to become inhabitants of it.
The defendants named are free negroes and aliens,
and they cannut come to this State without viola
ting our publiu policy, and they could not remain
in it without being guilty of a felony. Those pen
sons who canrot take by livery, canDOt take in
prcesenti by deed for the latter mode of convey
ance is a suuatitute lur the former. Bur, indepen
dently of that technical rule, it would be idle to
argue that a class of persons may become the own
eie of our lands, when our laws punish inhabitan
cy by them as a feluny : and still more idle would
it be to argue that though they cannot occupy our
lands themselves, yet they may hold them by
agents and receive the profit! through the bands
oi our citizens.

Capture or Slavers. Another slaver has been
captured on the ooast of Cuba. The barque Venus
formerly sailing under the Mexcan flag, was taken
by a Spanish war eteanier few day einoe, off
Moro Castlo, witb nearly six hundred negroes on
board. The barque Ketch Brothers, captured on
the coast of Afrioa, arrived at Charleston on
Wednesday morning. She wat formerly owned
in Charleston, but was cold to parties in Havana.

Tbi Mexican Plot. The Administration jour-

power iiy an allied lloet, which is converging to

Kentucky Toracco. The Louisville Journal, In
relerring to some troubles with the tobacco inspeo-

insists that that is too lame an interest to bo light

The Coolie Trade. The Rev. W. C. Burns, in
a letter dated from Swntow, gives an account ol
the Coolie Trade ai carried an even by English ves
sels, which, if tho fact be as he considers, demands
immediate nttentioti and inquiry. It is unjust to
attack the French fur their emigration scheme on
the Alrican coast if we nro ourselves in similar ad
ventures in China: "I have nothing of special in
terest to add, if I except what I may state bbout
the ooolie trado, vis , thut it is becoming mure and
more assimilated to slavory. The natives are not
only decoyed any under false pretences, but are
even kidnapped ui.d sold, as on the ooastof Africa.
A man was put to death a week or two ago, by cru
cijixivn, fur decoying persons away as coolies, and
at present there fire proclamations on the walls,
both from the magistrates and from tho people, of
fering rewards fur the apprehonsion of all w lio are
engaged iu a similar way. It is melancholy to
see English vessels engaged in such a traffic.
The Scotia screw summer is here for cooliei now

there is reason to believe that when the unwilling

kers and embarked in the vessels carrying a differ

ut Double island, the cose is undoubtedly so ; tor,
when the captains of ships decline taking persons
who show eideut nigns uf being on board against
their will, the native coolio agents take thcin on
shore und hold them as prisoners. Many also are
afraid, when asked, to say they are unwilling to go
feeling themselves in the power of their country
men, who can add cru-dty to imprisonment, and
that without the possibility of an appeal to any
other party. It is high time the attention uf the
British govemmont were drawn to this traflic, and
that measures for controlling it were devised, which
should extent! to vessels carrying other flags than
that of Ei, gland."
The last Legislature of Minnesota, which was
Democratic, passed an act that its successor should

Gov. McWillie, of Mississippi, in his message to
the Legislature, makes a terrible thrust at "iNorth
ern fantricism", Here is an extract, in which he
asserts the dignity of the Slate over which ho pre
sides :
" I have also received Legislative resolutions
from the Slates of Massachusetts, Maine and New
Hampshire, which are such aa you would expect
from the fanatical, abolition sources from which
they come. I have not acknnwled the receipt of
these resolutions, nir will I communicate them to
you, unless ospeciali" called upon to do so. Those
lunatics pave no right to expect these ottensive in
cendiary and treasonable proceedings to be treated
with the ordinary comity."
A SjI'tiiern view or the real Questions.
In a letter addressed to tho Atlanta Intelliyencer,
on the 8th of Ootuber, 1858, by Mr. Wright, one
of the Democratic members of Congress frum
Georgia, we find tho following paragraph :
"Alt into pectore do I wish tho Democracy could
leave ofl the Presidency for the presen t, nnd for
get tho dead, defunct, and wholly ttsclcus contro
vcisy about Leconipton, and look to tho yrcal
questions which do really concern us. Boyond all
doubt, the destiny of the South, as well ns the
glury of the Union is wound up in Mexico, Cuba,
aud Central America."
The view taken by Mr. Wright, is that taken
by nine-tenths uf the Suuthern Deuiocratic politi
cians, and it ia upon this view that they support
Judge Douglas, notwithstanding his opposition
o Lec'imptnn, and notwithstanding his Freeport
speech. It is not to the present Territories of the

it is to Cuba, and Mexico, and Central America,

revivalists who Ignore the claims of the slave, and
allure many from their course, all contribute, in
their tcVeral ways, to lessen our resources, and
hence the urgent need of renewed seal in address,
ing nurselves to this work.
We therefore cordially invite, not only those
whose kind assistance we havo had heretofore, but
all who valuo liberty fur the nation and peace aod
blessing for their own firesides, to unite with us In
this department of anti-slavery labor. We ask ol
you, liberal contributions scarcely any article
that has a market value ran conio amiss.
Our funds are olways used for the propagation ol
the anti-slavery gospel to divorce the Church
from man-stealicig and to supplant tyranny and
fraud with true democracy.
