Cje Centre Democrat.
BEtLEFONTE, PA. Thursday Morning, June 6,1860. j J. J. BRIiBLN, EDITOR & PUBLISHER; j W. W. BROWN, ASSOCIATE EDITOR. Afloat Again. For three weeks we have issued no Centre J democrat. The first reason we have to give t;ur readers for not issuing is that Jas. S. Brisbin. bertofore Senior editor of this pa per and Geo. 11. Burkeit one of the appren tices, left to battle for constitutional Free dom; Mr. Burkert having gone with the Fen eibles and Mr. Brisbin having received a xjientenancy from Pennsylvania's true and tried son, our efficient Secretary-of-War, Hon. Simon Cameron. The Lieut , after receiving his appointment withdrew his con nection with the paper. The second reason is that we could not go on until we had eol lecjed some of the "sinews of War," for it takes money to keep'a paper moving, and if our subscribers will be a little more punc tual in paying up, we think we are now ready to run the "old machine" till the cl jse of the present volume on our own book.— But we must have money or something as good. If our patrons do what is fair we will give ttem the best newspaper in Centre ooun ty. Col. Browu has kindly consented to con tinue his connection with the paper, as As sociate Editor. Of his ability, certainly, we used not speak. Tbe Centre Democrat has been and still is tbe advocato of the People's Rights—es pecially tbe rights of the Farmers, Mechan ics and laboring men df th 9 country. Such it will continue to be, aud we know that the honest and sturdy men of Centre county will not do without it if they consult their own interests. The best evidence of the ap preciation of the Democrat by tbe honest peo ple of Centre ccunty, is that tbey have supported it so long, notwithstanding the strong opposition it has had to contend with cn account of its plain outspoken truths.— Thus it will ever be. Truth will always meet with opposition. And a plain, honest advocate of tbe working men of the cctintry will always hav a strong and enduring op position frum Capitalists and monopolies, at tbe North as well the South—in the Old as well the New World. Hence the necessity of the farmers, mechanics and laboring men of the oountry reading and thinking and vo ting for themselves, regardless of the in trigues aud dictation of party leaders aud political demagogues. We went into the last Campaign with all the honesty of our heart voting for Abraham Lincoln and Andrew G. Curtin, as the rep resentative men— the one of tbe Nation, the other of the State—of a glorious and an eternal principle-Liberty and Freedom,— The Constitution and-the Laws. Tbey stood upon the Chicago or Republican platform, which we believed contained all there was left of "Equal and Exact Justice to all," in tbe Country. The result since has proved" that we were right. And therefore we have no apologies to make. So long as the Na tional and State Administrations carry out the[doctriDe3 of that platform, and what ever other measures in behalf of Constitutional Liberty, the present emergency may re quire, they shall have the support of the Centre Democrat. And if it becomes neces sary, wa will drop tbe pen, the stick and the rule, and take up the musket in their defence and in defence of the Old Flag. J. J. BRISBIN. Commissioners of Centre County. Never since the organization of Centre Co. has there been a better or more efficient Board of Commissioners than tbe present. — Thomas Hutchison, Ira Fisher and Jno. Mo'Calmont Esqs. Of course Maj, F- Bur kert was a most exoe'lent financier and therefore good Commissioner, but his place is well filled by Jno. Mc'Calmont Esq. The ■ tax payers of Centre Co., need have no feare while they 1 ave such men ;o take care of their interests. The County is in debt and we want it distinctly understood that the debt of the County oreated by the building of tbe Court House, has been diminished every year. A few years more will entirely obliterate ths debt, and then of oourse tbe county tax will be less and the oredit ef the county fully restored. The oredit of the county, notwithstanding the hard times, has never been better than for the last two or three years. Of course since the war broke out or since the March Court very little money has been paid in by the collectors and if tbey do not pay in the Treasurer cannot pay out.— All, we think, will be right in a few weeks. At present however the tax payers have no reason to regret that the present board of commissioners were elected. Such men should be kept in office all the time. Action at Aquia Creek, From the telegraphic news of the-2ad iaot. we gather the following facts concerning the actions at Acqaia Creek. On Friday tbe action lasted two hours. On Saturday it was renewed SDd continued twice as long. The rebel force is 200 strong. The steamers Freeborn and Pawnee entered the conflict on Saturday, At first tbe batteries kept up a brisk fire. During the action the 'Pawnee' fired one hundred and sixty shells. Tbe Observer through a telescope saw many of tbe rebels taken away ID wagons, supposed to be killed and wounded- Tbe FreebornJre oeived several shots, one passed through her cabin, The Pawnee received ten shots, but all too high to do much damage. The railroad depot, en shore, and the buil dings at the landing were destroyed. Ten rebels kilied and many wounded. Death of Stephen A, Douglas. Stephen A. Douglas is dead ! He has been seriously ill for 6ome time and bis death occurred on Monday June the 8d at 9 o'clock in the morning, in Chicago. At tbe time of his death be was 49 years old, having been born in Brandon, Rutland county, Va., April 23d, 18i3. We have a brief sketch of his life, which wa will publish next week. Complaint of the Volunteers, and Gov. Curtin. We love the good and loyal men who eae rificed every thing and went to the war to defend the Constitution as it is and the un. ion of the states. They are nable and gal lant fellows. No state has turned out bet ter or braver men than the old Keystone.— It appears from a few of the Republican pa" pers and nearly all the so called Democratic papers that these brave volunteers have not been as well cared for as tbey should ba7o oeen. There may bo some, no doubt there is much truth in the charge. From our stand point we eannot tell. By these papers Dev. Curtin comes in for the whole of the censure. We can easily see why the Democratic papers carp' upon the corruption in the army and the wickedhess, as tbey allege, of robbing the poor soldier. Tbey expect to make political capital 1 out of it after the war is ended. They expect'to ruin Gov. Ourtin and breakdown the Repub lican party. But why Republican papers should make such a fierce warfare upon our noble Governor, before be is first proved guilty, we cannot for the life of us under stand, unless they have beeo applicants for office and wete disappointed. But why should a man deseit his principles because forsooth, be is disappointed, or foiled in his political aspirations ? There can be, cer tainly, no principle in euch a man. But these papers say there is corruption, and robbery carried on to a great extent. — Thousands of dollars expended, and yet the soldiers not half fed or clothed. Now we do not care to drag politics into the question at such a time as this, but sinee tbey have done it we must speak in self defenos, and in de fence of our glorious principles, our party, and our Governor. The Democratic party died of the black rot of its own inherent sorcuption. When Cobb was robbing the national Treasury of Millions of Dollars, when Floyd was stealing our guns and moying, them South; when South Carolina and her rebel sisters were filching from us our forts, arsenals, mints, and even our merebaut vessels, all or nearly all of the Democratic papers defended the swindlers and endeavored to shield the per petrators of these crimes because they were members of their party. This we can never do. We can never advocate any party or man who is guilty of stealing the peoples money. Shame on the Democratic papers we say who are now splitting their lungs crying out corruption against Gov. Curtin when they would not open their mouths to expose the villians of the administrations of Franklin Pierce and Jas. Buchanan and their aiders and abettors. When we studied law we learned that, the greatest oriminal in the land was to be ad judged innocent until from the evidence in the case a jury of his country would find a verdiet of guilty. So it should ever be. We are all to ready too see our neighbors faults, while we are blind to own. We ate all too apt when wese N a poor devil going down hill to give him a kick in the the rear to aid him in his downward progress. Or when we see a fellow man, it may be a poor man ri sing in life a little faster than we, envies, jealousies, heartburnings ariee, and even the meanest slanders are published to the world toru : n his character, and to bring the object of our hate to our level. How mean and contemptable! bow narrow minded, how hellish is such a principle ! And yet this appears to be the principle by which the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Locofeco papers through out the state are governed in their mean and selfish attacks upon Gov. Curtin. If all those charges of corruption are true, some person is guilty.— But why censure ths Governor, when per haps be knowß nothing of this rascality un til he sees it blazoned forth iji news papers? Col. Curtin was bom in our own County, here he has lived and practiced Law for yeare and even his worst political enemies never dared to charge him with being dis honest in his buisness transactions. The vote of the county last fall shows how dearly he was beloved by those who knew bim so , well. What ever faults he may have and : none of us are without them, wa cannot be leive, we will not beleiye that he would ever misappropriate money or steal from the poor s soldier, or shield the scoundrels that do it. The Chester County Times in speaking up on this subject, says, " Thus far we are in , clined to the opinion that Gov- Curtin is not , the instrument knowingly or willingly of . these outrages mistakes he may have made, , for no man ever had more crowded upon him , as an executive than he, in the first rush of this military excitement. The confidence he , has placed in otherßmay have been abused, , nay it is evident that it has been, but we re peat the prooj has not pet been presented to show that he has connived at these abuses."'—. The Times is one of the most reliable county - papers in the State, and its Editor always talks like an honest man. And like every othor upright citizen of ho refuses to orj out against Gov. Curtin until the proofs of his connivance at wrong is addu oed, If Gov. Curtm has made mistakes it was by placing in power men who have been lead era in the Democratic party for yenrs, and who learned to steal while members of thai party, who care nothing about him or bis administration only so far BS they can fill their own pockets. Much of the blame seems to attach to the Quarter Master General — Reuben 6. Hale, who has always been a Democrat and is still a member of that par ty. But even him, we will not condemn un til we are satisfied of his guilt. Next week we wUI publish the letter of E, FT. Rauch, Esq., Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives, and also an article from the Chester couuty Times on this subject. In the meantime we importnne tbe Republican papers and members of our party, and all honest men in the Democratic party, not to be too rash or too hasty in their opinions un til the whole thing is investigated and tbe guilty party ferreted out. Goy. Curtin has commenced the good work. We hope be will not atop until he hurla every man of them from power and fills their plaoea with good, THK CBIWT3R.K OEMOCRAT. honest practical men. If be does this be wil] not only make himself immortal, but his heart will be made glad by the hearty greet ngs he will reeeive from ouf patriotic but abused soldiers as they return from tie war. We will have more to say next week. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, in some portion of the union, is condemned fordoing that which the people applauded Jack6oD and Clay for en couraging and accomplishing. When An drew Jackson grappled with nullification, he was sustained by the people outside of South Carolina. Treason then had no time to gath er its strength or concoct arguments and plans for its defences. Its first ebulition was met with disapprovals. Its first armed array was defiantly encountered aDd suppressed.— Jackson, when he accomplished the supres sion of nullification, did not entirely suoeeed in extracting the poison of treason from the band of traitors that have beon ever since increasing in the South. They have been flourishing in that locality for twenty-five years, and have been in that period the re cipients of more official favors than the peo ple of any other section of the United States. The army and navy have been crowded with education at West Point and the Marine Academy at the expense of the government —education with a view of one day turning their knowledge and experience against the government at whose bounty tbey were made proficient and accomplished. After nullifi cation had been suppressed, not' eradicated, this was the mode adopted by the Southern people for usurping the government. Asd now that Abraham' Lincoln is doing just what Andrew Jackson did, he is abused by the people of the neutral States as a eoercion ist—while the rebels themselves pronouDoe his administration a mockery and outrage. The administration of Abraham Lincoln has not gone as far in its determination to sups press this rebellien as did Andrew Jackson go to but an end to nullification Jackson proclaimed his determination to hang every traitor found with a weapon iu his bands arrayed against the government. Abraham Lincoln's administration must make the same declaration. If he is true to his oath, he cannot escape the enforcement of thd law, and that law expressly fixes death as the pen* elty oj treason. Let us have nothing but th 9 simple performance of duty, end the unwa vering exercise of justice in the suppression of Jhia rebellion. Conaession and compro mises have been proven to be mere subterfu ges of traitors th 9 meanest and weakest kind of inventions to cajole and flatter dema gogues. Let us now have the law tn letter and spirit in stern resolve and terrible exe cution, as Jackson proclaimed it, and threat ened to have it administered, viz: Death, to traitors.—Harrisburg Telegraph. The Relief Fund. ID pursuance of tbe provisions and direc tions of fourteenth and fifteenth sections of An Act of Assembly of Pennsylvania appro ved tbe 15th day of May 1861, entitled " An Act to create a loan and to provide for Com missioners of Centre county, constituted by the said act a Board of Relief, met at the Commissioners' office in Bellefonte on the 23d day of May, A. D. 1861, when the fol lowing resolutions were adopted •. WHEREAS, In obedience to the requisition of the Governor of this commonwealth, call ing for volunteers to support the Govern ment, a number of citizens of the couDty of Centre formed themselves into volunteer compaDies aDd were mustered into service, whereupon sundry persons agreed to pay to John Tonner, E. C. Humes and Samuel Linn, the amounts respectively subscribed by them for the support oi families of the said volun teers, during their absence in tbe service of the country, or such proportion of said sub. scriptions as the said committee in their dis cretion may deem D6cessary. And WHERE AS, tke said committee have called in an in stallment of 25 per cent, and a small propor tion thereof has been paid iD and applied to its legitimate purposes, and the said vols unteer committee are willing to give to tbe Board of Relief the benefit of said subscrip tion so far as the same can be properly aud equitab y so applied, therefore, Resolved, That tbe said committee for vol unteers' relief be requested to proceed imme diately to the collection of the assessment of 25 per cent on the said subscription and that they pay the unexpended balance to tbe Board of Relief and furnish the voucheis for so much as they have expended. Resolved, That all subscriptions heretofore made voluntarily to tbe relief fuod as stated in the foregoing preamble, tbe Board of Com missioners will give county orders, payable twelve months after date, and bearing six per cent interest, as soon as fifty per cent shall be promptly paid on the said subscriptions. But no order will be granted to any subscri ber who shall not promptly pay 50 per cent of his subscription or who shall have to b6 sued for the same. Resolved, That no person paying less than 50 per cent on bis subscription as aforesaid ehaU be entitled to a county order as afore said for the same. Resolved, That the Treasure shall not ap propriate to pay out any of the military fund for any other purpose than to supply tho fam ilies of the volunteers as provided for by the said act of assembly. Resolved, That the Commissioners of Cen tre county be and are hereby authorized aud directed to lay a speoial tax of one mill on tbe dollar on all the taxable property of the said county, for tbe purpose aforesaid. FIGHT AT FAIRFAX COURT HOUSE. ALEXANDRIA, June I.—At daybreak this morning, Company B. of the U. S. Dragoons while reconnoiteing in the neighborhood of Fairfax Court House, twelve miles from here, were fired on by the rebels. The drag oons charged through the village four times. Lieuts. Tompkins and Gordon both bad bor ses shot under them. Three other horses were wounded. It is estimated that fifteen or twenty rebels were killed. The dragoons took five prisoners. One of the Dragoons was killed, four wounded and one missing. TIIK STOPPAGE OF PROVISIONS FOR THE SOUTH.—The report from the West that pro visions destined for the South, but marked for Kentucky, have been stopped on the line by order of the Government is correct. The Administration intends, rather in deference to the almost unanimous sentiment of the West, than from a conviction of the wisdom of a policy, to stop shipments, whether di rect or indirect. The practical difficulty is to determine whether goods are in good faith intended for Kentucky consumption,, or not. SEWELL'S POINT.—This point about whiob considerable interest is now felt, is situated on the south shore of Hampton Roads, four miles from Fort Monroe. If fortified, it would command the entrance to Elizabeth Channel, which leads to the harbor of Nor folk. 1 Letting Alone, " All that we wanted," says Mr. Jeff Davie "isto be lot alone." AH that the Rebels in Charleston wanted, when they were for five months buildirg batteries to fire upon the United States flag and take a United States fortress, wy to be let alone. All that the rebels of New Orleans wanted, when tbey stole the Mint, was to be let atone. All that Gen. Braxton Bragg wanted, as be concen trated troops and rearel batteries against Fort Pickens, was to be let alone. All that the rebels woo took the navy-yard and hos pitals at Pensacola wanted, was to be let alone. All that Floyd wanted, as he robbed the treasury of the United States and put the arms of the people of the country within reach of the rebellion, wa9 to be let alone. All that Toucy wanted, as be sent tbe ships away and put the navy-yards into tbe bands of weak men, was to be let alone. All that Cobb wanted, as he strained himself to cre ate a disastrous fiaancial pacie in the ooun try, was to be let alone. All that' the Vir ginia traitors who went to seize tbe arsenal at Harper's Ferry, and were going to pos sess the navy-yard at Gosport wanted, was to be let alone. All that tbe Baltimore Plug Uglies want at this moment is to be let alone. And Jeff Davis) at the head of a rebellion which struggles to destroy the government of tbe United States, and would snatch Washington if it could, merely wants to be let alone. Yes, and Gay Fawkes going to touch the slow-match which should explode tbe powder in the cellar of the Parliament House only wanted to be let alone. Hicks, who who murdered the sloop's crew last only wanted to be let alone. The forger writing your own name, the incendiary kindling your store, the thief picking your pocket, tbe burglar breaking into your house, only want to be Ist alone. My friend, if you cry out so lustily, when yon see the sheriffs officer coming, that yon want to be let alone, I shall do my best to detain you until the officer comes up. During all the years in which the mind of a section of the country has been carefully prepared for this rebellion, the leaders of the movement of their friends have said, polite ly. "AH that we wish is to be let alone.— We think that we understand ourselves bet ter than ycu understand us—so, if you please only let us alone." There was an inexpress ible sarcasm in this request. They certain ly did understand themselves better than we understood them. They were " let abne"— and this is tbe consequence. They have led us by the nose and kicked us, and laughed at us, and scorned us in their very souls as cravens and tuppenny tinkers. They have swelled, and swaggered, and sworn, and lorded it in Washington and at the North, as if they were peculiarly gen tlemen, because they lived by the labor of wretched men and women whom they did not pay—whom tbey sold to pay their debts, and whipped aud maimed savagely at their pleas ure. They have snorted superciliously about their rights, while they deprived four mill ions ol human beings of all rights whatso* ever, and have sought to gain such control of toe General Government that they might override altogether the state laws which pro tect tbe equal rights of men. Tbey have aimed to destroy the boneficient popular sys tem which peacefully and patiently and law fully was working out the great problem of civilization ; and while tbey have been dig ging about the foundations of the temple to make sure of its downfall, they haye loftily replied to our inquiries. "We only want to be let alone." The teachcry, the meanness, of the whole rebellion now stand exposed to the world.— There is nothing heroic in it, nothing just, nothing fair; nothing that appeals to any emotion in the breast of honest men but de testation and contempt. The only two things that have lately flourished in tbe region which has bred this rebellion are cotton and treason. And the eonspiratcrs, who have now made this clear enough to the dullest mind, will disoover that the Governmeut of their eountry will " let them alone" only when they haye paid the penalty of the mt st monstrous social crime by flight or the hal ter, and when tbe seeds of the treason they have sown are utterly destroyed.— Harper's Weekly, Victoria's Proclamation. The following is the proclamation of Queen Victoria in relation to the American war : WHEREAS, We are happily at peace with all sovereign powers and States: And, whereas, Hostilities have unhappily commenced between the government of the United States and certain States, styling themselves the Confederate States of Amer ica : And whereas. We being at peace with the Government of the United States, have de clared our royal determination to maintain a strict and impartial neutrality between the said contending parties ; we therefore have thonght tit, by and with the advice of our privy council, to issue our royal proclama tion, and we hereby warn all our loving subjects and all persons whatever entitled to our protection, that if any of them shall presume, in contempt of this proclamation and of our high displeasure, to do any acts in derogation of their duty as subjects of a neutral sovereign in said contest, or in viola tion or contradiction of the law of nations, and more especiall}' by entering the military service of either of the contendingparties, as commisioned or non-commisioned officers, or soldiers, or by serving as officers, sailors or marines on board of any ships or vessel of war, or transport of or in the service of either of the contending parties ; or by en gaging to or going to any place beyond seas with tbeinteut to enlist or engage in any such service ; or by procuring, or attempting to procure, within her Majesty's dominions, at home or abroad, others to do so ; or by fitting out, arming or equipping any ship or vessel to be employed as a ship of war, or privateer, ortransport, by either of the con tending parties ; or by breaking or endea voring to break any blockade lawfully and actually established by or on behalf of eith er of the said contending parties ; or by carrying officers, soldiers, dispatches, arms, military stores or materials, or any ar ticle considered and deemed to be contra band of war, according to law or the modern usage of nations, for the use of either of the said contending parties, all parties so offend, ing will incur or be liable to -the several penalties and penal consequences by the said statute or by the law of nations in that behalf, imposed. -HENRY WINTER DAVIS, while deliver ing his great Union speech immediately after his nomination for Congress, on the 25th inst., in the city of Baltimore, was interrup ted by a little girl, who held in her hand a boquet of flowers, deoorated by a miniture flag. She approached him and said, "Sir, accept this ; 1 wish you and the Union to blossom forever, as this boquet here." The incident elicited the wildest shouts and ex oitemeiit. 0 ■ yjgf .Tankarm who assassinated Col. Ells* worth, was the cannibal'who cut off a piece of John Brown's ear, after he was hung, and chewed it. It is also a remarkable fact that nearly all who engaged in the pagentry of the proceedings attending the execution of Brown, have either met yiolent deaths, or become insane. Beariifg False Witness. There is some excuse for the excitement of the ignorant southern populace, who are not permitted by their leaders to eee the northern newspapers or hear the truth. They actually believe, in Borne places, that the present legal, eminently necessary .and just coercive attitude of the government, is only an excuse for a bloody abolition raid upon the slave states. But their leaders know this to be false, and no crime can be blacker than that of leading, or forcing those whom they should rather disabuse, into a wicked and self-destructive rebellion against the government by such misrepresentations.— Inexpressibly wioked as tbeir oonrse is, it will not surprise those who know the demor alising effect of political ambition, that dem agogucs, like Davis and Stephens, are capa* ble of taking it. They may even succeed in indueingsome of the weaker members ot the olergy to back them up, and so add the seem ing sanctions of religion to their unscrupulous purpose. Bat there are olergymeu at the South who know better —men of education, traveled men, men wbo have both read and written books, men who have' seemed to stand dassrvedly high in the Church, and have had the confidence of Cbristain people, at the North as well as the South—yet who, to our amazement, add the weight of their higher authority to the falsehoods which are urging an impulsive people to a terrible doom. A " Southern Baptist Convention" has been recently held at Savannah, of which the Rev. Dr. Fuller, of Baltimore, was president. In the capacity of chairman of the committee on the state of tbs country, he submitted a report, and certain resolutions, among which was the following: Resolved , That the lawless reign of terror at the North, the violence committed upon unoffending citizens; above all, the threats to wage upon the South a warfare of savage barbarity, todevastate our homes and hearths with hosts of ruffians and felons, burning with lust and'rapine, ought to exeite the hor ror of all civilized people. God forbid that we should so far forget the spirit of Jesus as to suffer malice and vindictiveoess to insin uate themselves into our hearts; but every princible of religion, of patriotism, and of humanity, calls upon us to pledge our for tunes and lives in the good work of repelling an invasion designed to destroy whatever our donesdo hopes and enjoyments, whatever is essential to out institutions and our very manhood, whatever is worth l.viog or dying for. Now we care not a copper who else was on this committee, or concerning it concocting these atrocious lies. But we know Dr. Ful ler, and who and what he is, and we hold him responsible tor them before the world. This gentleman—who is learned, pious, intimate with noithern people and feeling a light among the Baptists, and who enjoys no small reputation as a solid divine outside of that denomination —permits these infinitely mis chievous calumnies to go forth under the sanction ot his name. Dr. Fuller knows, as well as any mau in the country, that every word of this resolution ia false. lie knows " that there is no lawless reign oi terror at " the North," no violence upon unoffending " citizens no threats to wage a warfare of •' savage barbarity," or to " devastate homes " and hearths that we bave no " hosts of " ruffians and felons, burning with lust and "rapine;'' and that there is not such a thought in any northern mind as to 'destroy' all or anything that is " dear," or " sweet," or " essential" in the "domestic hopes, en joyments, and institutions" of the South. — Da. Fuller, who was the chairman of the del egation of the " Baltimore Young Men's Chrislaiu Association" to Washington, a few weeks ago, has not only the general means ot information of these matters common to men of his cultuie and intimate relations with the North, but the particular advantage of an intimate acquaintance with recent af fairs in Maryland. He saw the Massachu setts troops—he witnessed their long suffer ing patience, their law abiding forbearance ; be knows General Butler's cbaracteristical* ly prompt offer had a moral effect to prevent servile uprising that wili be felt through the whole war, and that ought to attract the grateful confidence of the entire South. At the headofhis delegation he visited Wash ington and was fully assured of tne extreme solicitude aDd forbearance of th 9 President and all the officers ot his government. Yet this reverent mischief-maker hesitates not to go to Savannah, where the fact that he came from the immediate theater of action adds auoh weight to bis well known religious rep utation, and there append his name to the lying document that we have cited. No language is too strong to characterize Dr. Fuller's conduct in thus, with his eyes open, against his perfect knowledge, and without the excuse of T OUB f? and hasty impulses, bearing faise witness against his neighbor, to the inevitable misleading and destruetion of thousands and tens of thousands o c those against whose delusions his voice should have been lifted like a trumpet.— N. Y. World. POSITION or JOHN C. BRECKINRIDGE —A correspondent writes to to the Louisville Journal, from Hopkinsville, Ky., May 2, 1861, as follows: " Breckenridge made an out-and-out dis union speech here to-day. lie said Ken tucky should unite with the seceding States immediately, that the Union was wholly broken up, and that ha was in heart, and eoul, and mind, and body, with the South.— He said that the South had never committed a single wrong against the North ; that Lin coln bad begun the war; that the American people had never owed any allegiance to the Federal Government, and that " all ultimate and paramount allegiance was owing to. the in dividual States," He denounoed the Border Confederacy, and said that armed neutrality meant Northernism and Abolitionism. He said a yast majority of the Northern people heartily endorsed the wish for wholesale in surrection, robbery, and murder in the South expressed by the Chicago Tribune. Tb>s is a oorrect sketch of the main points of hie speech." GFN, BUTLER, now leading in the operations against the rebels of Virginia, has already made a spiended military reputation. He is a man of vast and varied attainments, and most too keen a northern barbarian for the F. F. V.'e. Many good aonecdotes are told of the General, but none better illuetratos the character of the man, and his shreiA professional freaks, than the following by a young factory girl, formerly employed in one of the Lowell mills. She had been dischar* gad, and the corporation refusing to pay ber, she sought legal redress and retained Mr, Butler for ber oounsel. He listened to her case with much interest, and afterwards con sulted the representative of the corporation' who still refused to pay the girl her wages. Butler then issued a writ, and attached the main water-wheel of the establishment, and by bringing the whole manufactory to a stop the corporation, rather then allow tbair milla to remain idle, and await the law's delay, paid the girl her wages and returned opera tions.
