Tht Court House jjUfttnedbyths UketlfftoaXett- We r eport this week to our readers n peine of party L bigotry and ueurpe tkm euch aa baa neves before been ex bibitad in tbia county. It it well known we bare anew Court Ho um. built hy taxes levied upon boo of all parties aad of no party. It baa coat a large earn of money. $48,000 bsing tbooontmet price. DeaMee tcie 1500 of extra allowances hare already been made. Tbo building ie up, but i yet uneoekwed. and tbooeanda of dollars are required to make it a deeent aad comfortable place. All this h as been cheerfully endured, altbougb the. taxes bar been henry and most for some years eentane burdensome. The peo ple were wilting so pay for euch a structure aa shooU be an ornament to the county, aad provide a secure plaee for tbo public papers. They had no objection to making extra allowances in meritonona eaeee; and when it wae shown, aa in the instance of Mr. Re id, thafbo moat bite lost, without any fault of his own, a vary large sum, it was an act of simple justice to make him whole. AH tbia baa been patiently endured, and more. The building is hardly finished, the contract being as yet un fulfilled, when it is apparent.that such defects exist in the mode of its con struction, or in the quality, of the ma terials, or both, that unless a oonsid erable sum of money is expended for repairs, and to save it from decay, now evident and progreaeive, the house will soon be, what it already appears, an old building. But ne serious complaints have yet been heard on this subject. It was supposed the Court Honree was inten ded tbr puMte wee, and that no party proscription would close its doors on the people who paid for it. That u a mistakk. The SheriTof Franklin county, Michael Batsner. is charged with its safe keeping, uader instruc tions from the County Board to per mit if use to general j meetings and contention of the people of the coun ty. He interprets there instructions to mil himself. He interpolates before words "people of the county,' ' these other words "old line Democrats," aad excludes the Republican tax pay era. An appointment had been made for W. C. lloreau to sienk in the Court House, on Monday night. Hand bills were printed, beaded "County Meet ing." These were circulated gener ally. Persons assembled here from different parts of the county. They were here from Fairfield Township, Brookville Township, and Springfield Township, nd other parts of the coun ty, as wall as from the town of Brook ville. Ladies had assembled with a view to attend the meeting. And yet, under these circumstances, when Hiew Staeurrr Batsner is politely ap proached, and asked for the key, he peremptorily rafuase admission to ran the petty authority with which be is in rested, when he shuts the door, and insolrutly tells those who bava built tie bouse that they cannot be permit ted to enter. He knows, well enough, that the meeting waa no town meal ing, but that it was called for and re sponded to aa a general meeting of the people of the county. Pray tell ua what gare the late county meeting of the old liners aay superiority over the one on Monday night We assert that there were aa many in Mtondance in and around the Market House, as at any time, on Saturday, listened to Mr. Ray while he delivered his dull harangue to the old liners in the Court House. The difference Is simply that one was in day tight tho other at night; and this is a distinction not founded in common sense, and which, consequently, the Commissioners hare not made. Suppose last night Jesse D. Bright had dropped in to Brookrille. Ha would hare been asked to speak, in all probability. It would hare been S ssj too late, let us suppose, for a general notice, and none but the faithful around town could hare been drammed up for tne audience. Does any sane man be lieve that Mr. Banner would hare hesitated one moment to open the door, light up in all its effslgence the 180 chandelier, escort Mr. Bright to the luxurious plush spring bottomed chair, aad invite she old liners to the repsst of dulness which that overrated sen. tor would have served for their delectation? No. In conclusion, we rejoice to hear that there are among the old liners liberal minded men who condemn this oaltrv usurpation . We shall see how it is vindicated and sue tained. The following is the exact lannaxe of the order of the Board, referred to. Ordered by the Board, that the Sheriff of Franklin county keep the kevs and the custody of the court room and be is hereby strictly enjoined from allowing or permitting the said court room to be used for any other purpose than for holding 1 the sereral courts of said county, or for a general meeting or convention of the people thereof. thing that could not be defended n Convention ut Indianapolis reasons moral ev pe1a.c..l Ust week wke stirrinu. and crow- lathe smecenect,oohaM'dbVw,,kntth, capitol.

This wss done. Some were provided with seats. Num bers stood. Tho ladies occupied the adjacent doors, porches, and side walk. Such is the position in which the Re pubKean party stand in this county, and even lower than this in the esti matoa of party hacks, on the other aisle, for ruffians attempted a distur bance ofthe meeting, which they could not bare effected in the Court House; and we cannot doubt it was part ofthe motive that led to this act of intense party bigotry, that it would be poss ible by means of noisy outsider to dis turb and embarrass a meeting in the open air. Mr. ÜaUaer justifies himself. We cheerfully publish his card, and afford him the fill benefit of it. One of his excuses is that this was a might meeting. If the Commissioners de signed that the people should come to their contentions and meetings in the day time, why did they not say so? They never meant any such absurdity. Sup pose that tho recant democratic, old line meeting, held here on Saturday, the If ih of July, had run over until evening, and the court room hud been desired for public speaking? No one, Mr. Batsner would hare graciously opened the door, nod obsequiously bowed them in. He talks too of it being a town meeting aad asks if the tax payers desire to furaisb a town bail to the people of Brookvitle? This dodge won't do. The Republicans hare a dub room, in Link k Faraebar's building, amply convenient for all or dinary town meeting. Rut when a .county meeting is held, by dsy or by night, we say Mr. Batxncr acts as a tyrant Ami usurper, to tho extent of The Judiciary Effect of Party on Opinion. We hare been discussing t ie evils of our present system of electing men to judicial office by the influence of party. We gave last week the fact that Judge it-id had abandoned his former opinions upon the prohibitory question, and had, in the language of the late Mr. Buchanan, "squared himself to the platform" by turning a complete somerset. We allude this week to another instance of the turn ing about of this same Judge, to ac commodate himself to tbe new opin ions of the platform makers of the par ty on which he relies for support. He has not given any opinion er eathtdra, on the question now alladed to, but he haa avowed sentiments in his lite electioneering harangues directly op posed to . the opinioni he h Jd and stoutly maintained in 1849-60. Then he was a member of tbe Sen ate from the district composed of the counties of Union and Fayette. Cer tain memorials were presented by him "praying for the amendment or repeal o( the lawa then in force, which opera ted injuriously on the natural and civil rights ofthe colored population of In diana." They were referred to a se lect committee of which Mr. Reid waa ehsirman, and on tbe 7th of January I860, he presented to the Senat are port embodying the opinions of tbe committee, and from this report we shall make some extracts for the purpose of proving that in 1860 Mr. Reid was, according to tbe estimate of his present political associates, an ab oiitiooist of the moat virulent and treasonable kind. We invite all who are curions on this subject to look for the Documentary Journal of 1849-60, and turn to tbe last psper in it, where they will find the whole thing in, black and white, under Mr. Reids own name. "Being" says Mr. Reid, deeply im pressed with tbe importance of tbe sub ject before us, and believing that it is our duly to examine carefully the rights of our colored population, and the wrongs which our present laws are guilty ol inflicting on this class of un fortunate persons; and turning out eyea back to the early formation of our territorial government and the ordi nance of 1787, we cannot but admire the noble sentiments which animated the bosoms of those great Statesmen who introduced and carried out this celebrated I ordinance, by whieh sla very and involuntary servitude are forever prohibited within our State, otherwise than in the punish ment of crimes. What is slavery? What is tbia dreadful ml, which all mankind of every nation and of every creed bare been taught to fesr and guard sgainstf" Mr. Held then proceeds to answer his own Question. "From tht earlittt history of tht world thit principle hat been gradualy encroaching on tht r ight, of man. Ns lion haa risen against nation, and kingdom ag.jnst kingdom, for the pur pose of enslaving their fellow men, aad while ail denounce abstractly the principle, yet alas! how few abstain from the practice. Slavery it the loss of each or all of the grand and inalien able rights of mankind, known as the civil and natural right of man, nod in proportion to the loss of our freedom. SO ia the txtent of our slavery. 'Sla very,' says Jndge Mansfield, in his decision in the celebrated Somerset cue, of such 6 nature that it is in capable of being introduced upon rea sons moral or political, U ja so odious that nothing can be suffered to support it but positive law." These extracts show that in I860 Judge Reid was a devoted admirer of the ordinance of 1787 and, as a nec essary result, of the Missouri restric tion, which is but its reenactmrut; tuat he cordially hated slavery as an odious ric of American Independence, what rich heritage it the fertile valley of the Mittittpp,and who are the guardians of tht eacred temple of Faxaoou." Now, while his partisans aro slang whanging over the country about nig gers, aad wool, charging abolition sen timents on all who oppose the exten sion of Slavery, and declaring that the Republicans love niggers better than they do whites let t us see how Mr. Reid valued the darkies in 1860. He avows: "We do not consider it necessary to enter into anv argument to fshow that tbe Negro, liiiiallo, and Indian sre men, anJ as such entitled to all of ihu natural and civil rights; in as full pow er as any citizen t Indiana. I be history of the world allows them tin character, and has assigned to each his proper place in the rank of man kind. But weie this denied, there are of themselves self evident proofs, de veloped in their physical formation, their mental abilities, the inherent principles of their nature, and the ac knowledged admission of the civilized world." Tbe report proceeds to examine the laws by which negroes were rendered incompetent as witnesses, when whit men were parties; by which all blacks coming into (he State were required to give security for good behavior, and against pauperism, or be seised and sold for six months to the h'gheat bidder, dec. Over these enactments, notwithstanding by a constitutions! provision the people of this State have since excluded negroes altogether from settling amongst us Mr. Reid wastes as much lachrymose rhetoric as you could expect from Gerrit Smith or Theodore Parker. He bewails the terrible lot of the negro whose family dwelling may be invaded by the spoil ers the earnings of years, the virtue of hit children, the peace of his home de stroyed even li.e itself taken, yet the colored man, so far as he is concerned. is powerless in the hands ot his op pressor, lie asserts that it is the duty of the State of Indiana to protect them aa raxx men, and not as tavet. The Judge goes abroad far author- "J. "Europe," he says, "has long since rrpudiated the doctrine of the incom petency of the colored race, and now in England, France, Prussia, and Ger many, the testimony of this class of persons goes to the Court and jury. allowing them to judge of its truth and credibility, sustaining or rejecting it on the character and reputation of the man. But here in rRxs and .n- LKiHTEN ED IsD' AS , Oil the Soil COVCf- ed by the faimed ordinance of 17Ü7, here, where Freedom hath built her altar, and when the talent and intelli gence of the age aro fast hastening, here in this beautiful country the cunt of Slavery still rests, blighting and blasting the hopes and rights of the colored population, and treating them as if they still were slaves." The committee alio reported a bill, providing for certain changes in the law, and urged its adoption because the spirit and intelligence of the age demand it; because three thousand ab olitionists petition for it; because the great charter of American freemen and the Gkeatkr Declaration or Dl ink Authority in the Hour Biblk, upon whose God our .fathers trusted, all raise their voices and cry, soften the rigor of your lawa and Ut my people be fret Now we inquire, was Judge Reid a oegto worshipper in 1850? ' If so, when did he wash himself clean from the odor of Africa, and shave off the crop of political wool with which he waajodoned? and how came he to turn out a changeling? What could have induoed so devoted a friend of the ne gro, so ardent a champion of the or dinance of 1787, so stout an advocate for freedom, and the higher law, and so bitter an enemy of slavery, to grow into the modern form and proportion of a filUSuatsring, old line, buccanicr? Can any body tei; us? Or is it diffi cult to guess that party influence, and love of office corrupt the judiciary, and turn abolitionists into old liners? We do not quote this from his re poitto condemn its doctrines but to show how great is the influence of party upon the opinions of men who cell themselves to do its behests. The remedy is for the people to rise above party, and select a good nnd true man because, of his moral worth, and legal attainments, end not because he squares himself to the ever changing platforms oi demagogues. We may allude to this subject of the Judiciary again, when the people have time to consider it. And we may, as n strong auti old line speech, quota the entire of the Judges able report, beforo the election. That Big Farm .s2.

It is useless to guess ors pretend toisti mate the number. The Sentinel set it down at 6,000, others at 15.000, others at 40,000. Rev. James Havens 'nformed us that he counted the num ber in a'given space, and estimating the size of that space, nnd of tho space filled, he wosjld Br there wen- 80, 000. The probable number was from 40.000 to 60,000. But the number is the least important featun The tpirit the enthutiatm. tho anirn$ of the crowd, was Ua feMurv. Such a pint we never before witnessed. It wm the rising up of freemen, whose lives snd liberties were endnngered, by tho hand of the oppressor; and tl ere was seen in the expressions of every ince, such a fixed d termination to throw off the yoke, and assert the rights of man, as Is seen only when terrible wrongs have driven men to desperate measures. We shall not at tempt a detail of the proceedings. They were enthusiastic and interest ing. There were flags, and banners and mottoes and every thin else that could indicate an uprising of the tnaa ses, and in the evening there wns a torch light procession, and every man went home encouraged to hope for an overwhelming vote in October, for the People's state ticket, and for thn Peo ples President in November. The convention adjourned, to meet on the Tippe cam e Battle Ground in the first wtek of October and hold a "Three Days Meeting." On Wednesday, the Know Noth ings, or Americans, held their State Convention, and nominated an electo ral ticket. They had no enthusiasm no procession, and but few people. Their meetings were held in the Hall of the State House, and weie not very harmonious. On Thursday the Office Holders held their ratincntion meeting. It was largely attended. Like tho meeting of Tuesday, it is mere conjecture, as the numbers. We would suppose f om the best information at had that there mnst have been 20,000 probably more. Its size, compared with the peoples meeting, may be inferred from the fact that there were 22U carloads ofthe former and 132 of the latter, making 94 cars less on Thursday than on Tuesday. It was however, a re spectable meeting, its to numbers, but it larked the spirit aad interest of the former. dinant at 'Toss Goodwin" buentts mm ii ciliar n as n v,t r mm a lax pay er, he has ventured to call in question the wisdom of purchasing a splendid corn farm on which to erect an asylum for tho poor. It was a great piece of presumption in him, but, though he has been pounded by their bully, who has grown both rioh und insolent out of the pereentagu on the MOrthouu taxes which honest laboring men have been compelled to pay, snd though another of tlu ir numbers has a stand ing oflVr of ten dollar tt aay cne that will pound him again, for bis ex ercise of the freedom of speech a right once sacred to every American, but now denied all who do not wor ship slavery, nnd though another is deterred from giving him a caning with his premium mullen stalk, only by the fear of a pistol, yet ho will speak his sentiments ns a freeman. It is apologized by tho Commission era nnd their defenders, that a part of (Ik: farm can be rented so as to pay ten per cent on the investment. If the people want to be taxed, to pay for a farm to rent, at ten per cent, they will keep tho present dynasty in pow er. Most of them think they can lend their money, or buy larosa, quite to thvir liking without having a board of Commissioners, and a treasurer me., to lick up about half of that ten per cent. It is further said, in their defense, that the farm can be sold fur all it cost. We dont believe it; but, if it can, we say sell it, and so sa y at least seven-tenths, if not nine-tenths of the voters of the county. The peo ple do not want a farm to rent, nor a rorn farm to use. They want a small farm, of some 25 or 30 acres not ex ceeding 50 acres, on which should be erected a comfortable building, capa' bio of being built to, and enlarged hereafter, and then some 10 acres of gnrden, and some 10 or 15 acres of pasture land, vlll this could be bought tor irom 9500 to 91,000, instead of 85,500. aujf II UM the SV lJsV-l40JSMll njr fealurwÄf ibwitfj imm. mm lOto waiBUvoreSSnrtatif rdar ' An ton of! of the Border Man The tokrnM I BT lmWkt A 'at sV ihusdsecrlb a it: Theeompshy was Jitadv-d by Beel sebub leading out his parts, with the significant motto, "My works do fol low me.

The truthful r presentations of Border Ruffianism and Old Lineism in general, brought thunders of ap plause from an admiring crowd. Pat ent democracy received some bard "digs," and it was felt with force by the leading spirits of Buchanan and Border Ruffianism. They slunk into their hiding places like wood-chucks escaping from the approaching dogs, and kept themselves hid during the light of day. After the "Earthquakes" reached the Stale Hsuse Square they paraded around to the great amazement and delight of the assembled multitude. After going through tne process ot "driving out free State settlers" and dispersing the Kansas Legislature by order of President Pierce, they formed into rank and returned to Mr. Fletch er's residence, where they unmasked and dispersed to their homee.

The whole his lory of Kansas, from its settlement to tho dispersion of the Topeka Legisla ture, with some other things about which the old Lineis want but little said, were very well represented. The Earthquake demonstration was one of the features of the day, and will long be remembered by those who, with gaping months and astonished eyes, gated upon it. To give a full or accurate description of it would task the power of the best pea that was ever wielded in descriptive story. We have not even attempted to give a full report of the proceedings of the "fan tastic." We have glanced at the prominent features and most stiktng points aad let the minulia go. Our poor faculties are not adequate to the occasion which called for an exertion of them yesterday in noticing the "Earthquakes." The old liners being at a loss to find any thing in the history of the freeman of Kansas or their friends in Indiana with which to offset this ta king illustration of Squatter Sover eignty, charactnred the Louisville rio ters of last year. It would have been just as appropos to the questions at is sue, to have acted the Wyoming mas ssere, tor the freemen of Indiana were just as responsible for it, and just as much connected with it as with ihe riot. But it war. the best they could do. I: is said to have been amusing, but its want of appropriateness was so manifest that it as harmless to the cause of freedom and useless to the cause of slavery. The attempt was an acknowledgment of the point and force of the exhibition of Tuesday. and its inappropriateness a confession that the cause of the freemen could not be caricatured. Even on the ground that the )( now Nothing of t.oulsviile were the instigators (which is false) it would still have been in bad taste to have stabbed the few Know Nothings of In liana who. the day before, had met and quietly pre pared to depart this life.

Horrible Outrage in Kansas I henrd to-day of an outrage wht'cl exceeds any that 1 have henrd of du rinL' ihe Kansas troubles. A man bv the nasse of Richards, formerly Ohio, residing an Pottawatomie creek in the southern portion of the Territo ry, having occasion to go to Westport left home on Ihursday last, with th understanding that he would be back in four days. During the first day ol his absence, two men came to th house and enquired for him; Bndini that he waa not at home they left saying that lhey would call when he returned, his wife inviting them to d . stating that b would be home in day or two. About ten o'clock thn night, after the family had retired, knock was heard ut the door, Mrs. Richards asked what was wanted, she reply was, we want to see Mr. Rich ards. She replied that he was not at home. They then demanded Mrs Richards to open the door. He is a 0 D d Abolitionist, we must have him. She again replied, he is not at home, and refuted to open the door. It was then broken open, and seven or eight men entered the room and com menced searching it for Richards. Not finding bim, they accused Mrs. Richards and her daughter, an intelli gent young lady abont nineteen years old, of secreting him. The ladies, completely bewildered by terror, pro tested thai they had told the truth, and that thev had not secreted him that One replied. "Then (Jod d n you, we want you," and dragged the daughter from the bed, and from the house into the bushes close by. and there proceeded deliberately, to violate her person. Her mother, Mrs. Richards, w s treated in the same manner, and both left for dead. How long they remained ia the bush, they were unable to toll, but she managed finally to reach tbe house v. here they were found by one of the neighbors the next morning, who, after providing for their personal comfort, immediately started to raise a company to pursue the villians. In sn hour a company of terribly excited men were raised, numbering about thirty, who un(jcr the command of Jr. Smith, started on the trajl. They traced jhem to a cimp of about one hundred men. sit uated in a deep ravine some distance from the creek. Finding lhat they were not strong enough to Qght, some of the company started for assistance, while olh rs remained to watch their proceedings. The watchers were, however, unfortunately discovered. sj and consequently had to leave, snd b the time their comrades returned, the camp had been moved, and the rufBans escaped. This affair has caused great excite ment throughout the Territory, and is almost loo horrible to believe. I had the facts from Mr. Richards himself, who haa teen to aciing Gov. Wood son, to endeavor to get justice done, hut without avail, and has come to Topeka lo get the citizens tü help him to arrest anil obtain tU- perpetrator of Uns most diuboTioal outrage. It has since b en ascertained lhat (he scoundrels were part ol Buford's meO, who are armed with United States muskets, and in ihe pay of ihe United States M;ir-I.y.. This is hut u single one of 'ho many outrages that aie dailv being perpe trated Upon the Free Stale people of Kansas. People of the North! will you permit this longer to continue?
