Tne Liucm, of to-day, is a well filled

Advices have been received by letter in
this city to-day, from Boston, which rep
resent everything safe and quiet inside
the court-house in Boston. The United
States troops arc still on duty in the
building to prevent a rescue of the fugi
tive, and to protect the Federal officers
in the execution of the law. Outside of
the building there is still a large crowd,
many of worthy citizens jtiraottd
by cqrtys^ty, but most of them rioters
and sssa&insj collected and summoned
by Parker and Phillips, acting under the
suggestions of Charles Sumner, and his
satellite in Congress, Mr. Banks. Cir
culars have been addressed by the Aboli
tion Vigilance Committee of Boston to
the surrounding towns, urging the "faith
ful'' to come to the city by the early
trains. The following is a copy of the
document. It bears the earmarks of be
ing the offspring'of Sumner and Chase:
" Boston, May 27, 1354.?To the Yeomanry
of New England ' Countrymen and Brothers !
The vigilance committee of Boston have to in
form you that the mock trial of the poor fugi
tive slave has been further postponed to Mon
day next, at 11 o'clock. A. M. You are re
quested. therefore, to come down and lend the
moral weight of your presence and the aid of
your counsel to the friends of justice and hu
manity in the city. Come down, then, sons of
the Puritans, for even if the poor victim is to
be carried off by the brute force of arms, and
delivered over to slavery, you should at least
be present to witness the sacrifice, and you
should follow him in sad procession, with your
tears and your prayers, and then go home and
tike such action as your manhood and patriot
ism may suggest Come, then, by the early
trains on Monday, and rally in Court square.
Come with courage and resolution in yoir
hearts, but, this time, with only such arms as
ftod gave to you.'1 (
Notwithstanding all this preparation
and effort, we are satisfied that the forms
:>f law will be carried out, and that the
slave will be returned to his owner. The
troops of the United States are sufficient
thereto, even without the aid of the citi
sen soldiery, or of the city government,
svhich, with the exception of the Com
mon Council, is in the hands of the Free
toilers. It will be seen by our tele
graphic despatches that, yesterday, the
Board of Aldermen passed an order that
the citizen troops be dismissed, but that
the Mayor refused.
The United States, as is the case in
New York and Philadelphia, have no
jourt-house of their own, nor have they
inyjail. Consequently, the fugitive is
confined in one of the jury-rooms in the
;hird story of the court-house used by
;he United States Court. The city and
State force, therefore, in Boston, is called
ipon, not to protect the federal officers in
?xecuting the law, but to protect the
:ourt-house from injury by the mob, and
to maintain the quiet of the city. Were
it not for the United States troops, no one
:ouId answer for the results. Fortunate
ly, they are competent for all emergen
ces, under the direction of Watson Free
nan, the United States Marshal, and the
District Attorney, Hon. B. F. Uallett, to
both of whom too much nor too high
praise cannot be awarded.
We understand that Giddings of Ohio
left this city last evening for Boston. He
is undoubtedly the bearer of dispatches
from Sumner and Chase and Banks.?
Why does not Sumner take the field in
person, and lead the mob, whose passions
tie has inflamed by his recent speeches
ind letters ? Why does he not expose
himself to danger along side of the delu
ded men whom he has designedly led
astray ? Is he not deficient in courage
and common manhood l. Men everywhere
draw that conclusion. He prefers to
affect the airs and grimaces of a Broad
way fop upon the avenu<^ aud in the
Senate Chamber, to leading his fanatical
confederates to the accomplishment of the
ends, lor the attainment of which he lias
so often pronounced himself ready to
sacrifice everything.
Public sentiment iu Alexandria, we
learn, is intensely excited in condemna
tion of Sumner and his allies. We know
that it increases in this city every hour.
The masses look upon Suinner as respon
sible for the death of Batchelder. They
attribute, and justly, the action of the
murderers to the counsel of Sumner. We
hope that public sentiment against these
Abolition miscreants who infest Congress,
and our fair city, and fill the atmosphere
in which they move with the odor of a
brothel, will not descend to acts of per
sonal violence. Such conduct can find no
justification. But let public opinion con
demn these men every where, in the street,
in the Capitol, in every place where men
meet. Let Sumner and his infamous
gang feel that he cannot outrage the farm
of his country?counsel treason to it
laws?incite the ignorant to bloodshed
and murder?and still receive the coun
tenance and support of the society of thi.>
city, which he has done so much to vilify.

mor. It is now rendered almost certain that the
President will communicate his views to Con- I
gress on the subject at an early day. While
it is highly probable that ho will recommeud J
prompt, energetic, and oven extreme measures.
it is equally probable that he will take occa
sion to repudiate Jiltibitst/rism, no matter
what form it may assume, or from what direc
tion it may issue. It may be noted as a singu
lar coincidence, that the tone and attitude as
sumed by the present Administration towards I
Spain, growing out of our involved and in
rolving relation? with her great dependency.
Cuba, are precisely identical with the tone and
lttitude assumed by President Jefferson's ad- I
ninistration pending the acquisition of Louisi-1
ina. A reference to Air. Jefferson's corres

make the veriest stickier for "things as they

It was held that as he had fully complied I
with his first contract of enlistment, and had
a right to an honorable discharge if he had
demanded it, his failure to complete a subse-1

right to a gratuity depending upon service I
and honorable discharge under his first enlist
ment ; but the balance of )my due him, under
Ilia last enlistment, was forfeited to the gov- I
amine nt. j
The Boston Biot?Charles Sumner.?The
Boston riot, with its attendant outrage and
bloodshed, ha? not only called forth a senti
ment of the deepest indignation in this city,
but it has also satisfactorily demonstrated to
the world that, in all questions affecting the
honor of the country, or the stability or sa
irednees of its laws, the American people are
anited as one man. The press of nearly every I
political shade have, with unexampled una
aiuiity of purpose and sentiment, denounced!
the authors of the cowardly, bloody outrage
iu Boston in terms of unmitigated scorn, con 1
tempt, and loathing. The insane idiots who
;omposed that frenzied mob should have Iteen
treated as uiad men or mad dogs are usually
treated?caught and caged, if possible; but
jhot down if they persisted in their course of
leath und danger. But what punishment is
meet for suuii men as Sumner, (biddings <L
Co..' If it had not been for the incendiary
tr.iitorous appeals of these creeping, crawling,
?owardly enemies of the Republic, the Aboli-1
tion mob of Boston would have let off their
sxce's of steam iu the customary shrieks, I
Uamps, and scoldings. In the place of mur-1
lering Baichelder, they would have been con-1
tent with stigmatising Washington as a slave
breeder, oi wreaking their vengeance on the
President in an etligy demonstration.
It may be that before this excitement passes I
away, when men s minds are in too inflamable
a state to permit the cool exeruise of the rea- J
soning faculties, the crazed abolitionists oi l
New England will discover that if madmen
will resort to the argument of brute force,
that "there arc blows to receive as well as to
take.'" If Southern gentlemen are to be
Lhreaiened and assaulted, while legally seek
ing to obtain possession of property, for the!
use of which they havo a solemn constitutional
guarantee?if legal rights can only be sought
for and established at the bayonet's poiut?
certain Northern men. now in our midst, will
have to evince a little more circumspection
than they have ever evinced in their walk, talk
and acts. While the person of a Virginia cit
izen is only safe from rudeness and outrage
behind the serried ranks of armed men. Chas.
Sumner is permitted to walk among the -'slave
catchers"' and ' fire eaters" of the South in
E<eace and security. While he invites his
constituents to lesist the federal laws, even
to the shedding of blood, concocts his
traitorous pfcts, and sends forth his incen
diary appeals under the broad, protecting
panoply of the laws he denounces, he
retains his seat in the Senate. and yet daily
violates the official oath which he took to sup
pjrt the Constitution of the l:nited States. If
wo contract the treatment which a Southern
slaveholder receive* at the hands of a North
ern abolitionist, with tho treatment which the
latter receives at the hands of the former, we
may proudly assert that among the many vir
tues which adorn the Southern character, fur
bearance is not tl o least conspicuous.
Printing of the Patent Office Beport.?Mi.
Lrodhead's motion to reconsider the vote by
which the Senate ordered the printing of 37,
500 additional copies ot the second part of the
Patent ofnee report, was up for consideration
yesterday. Aftur Seuutor Brodhuad's remarka
ble constitutional argument on the Nebraska
question, we were prepared for anything
amusingly novel,' and. therefore, we felt no
astonishment at tho reason assigned by him
for offering and sustaining the motion in ques
tion. But, we confess, th.it we felt no ordinary
mortification on hearing that the motion had
been sustained by the following vote
