On tha morning of iht find, the
Kallant alotip wmh dreaaeed out with
fl tt,' flying from rvery maal head,
m honor of the Father of hia Coun
try; and Captaio S wmt aabore
iq tritnaACt buaineaa with the Ameri
can Conaul, Mr. Oflley. leaving or
dert for the cuatomary obaervancet of
the dny. The first lieutmanl accor
dinly directed that preparntiona
ahould be niade for the birth day
aalute, by drawing the ahot from gnns.
In executing thia aervice, (he toutire
ia to draw the ahoi and draw it along
aide of the gun; ao that the officer, in
pAteing Along to gee thAt the duty hag
been performed, observing the shot,
is sAtinfiedof (he fact. On this occa
sion it happened that the cabin guns
weie drawn first, and to avoid lum
bering the oabin. were directed lobe
carried away. One of the shot, it
seems, from carelessness or hurry,
was laid alongside one of the guns in
the waist, before the uun Iiau been
drawn; nnd to this slight circumstance
were owing lha mist bancea of the
day.
'While the aalute wa. ; firing, the at
tention of the first lieutenant was at
tracted by the repor. of one of the
guns, and he immediately called
out
"Gunner! that gun had a shot in it."
"No, sir," the gunner replied,
"there U the ahot alongside the gun."
"No matter for that," said the lieu
tenant, "I am satisfied from the
sound, that the gun was shotted."
"I do not think so, sir," rejoined
the gunner, "but at any rate thegu.).
Are so depressed that the shot could
do no harm."
lhe guns had been depressed to
pi event demage to the neighboting
abipping from the wadding.
The salute was fired, and the first
lieutenant had gone below, leaving
the second tiuetenant in charge of the
deck. While the officer was pacing
the deck, unconscious of impending
evil, he observed a boat putting off
from a Dutch gun brig, their nearest
neighbor and steering for tbe Ontario.
She waa soon alongside, and a Dutch
lieutenant stepped upon the deck,
with strong symptoms of consterna
tion in his demeanor.
"Mein Got, sir," was the first salu
Urion, "you fired a shot into us just
now, which carried away our maim
peam, and almost kilt a man."
The American officer expressed his
deep regret at the accident, and re
quested, the Dutch offler to be seated
while he communicated the circum
stance to tha lieulanant.
"H , do you know we've shot
a Dutchman this morning ?"
"Shut a Dutchmitn ! -impossible,"
cried the lieutenant.
It's a fact here's and officer from
the Dutch gun-brig on board of ua,
and be tells me we've carried awav
some of bis tackle and almost kilt a
man"
"Then for God'a sake, my dear fel
low, get a boat, go on board, expuio
the Accident, and m ike ev ry ptoper
apology; ascertain what damage has
been d oue, and ofler suitable repara
lion." The officer went on board the Dutch
brig and explained the accident to the
captain, whom he found a very rea
sonable man find salUtied with the
explanation lie gave him. The shot,
it fee ins. had ricochelted. struck the
surface of the wnler and glanced off
paased over the Dutchmnn's poop
and struck his main boom, or "peam."
as the Dutch officer had it. The lieu
taut inquired for the man who was
"almoet kilt." and was gratified to
laarn that h "almost" meant that
tha ahot had paaawd pratty near a
young rtiddy who waa walk'iag on the
poop at tha time, but had neither bit
nor hart him. The Duioh oAptAin
politely declined an offer to repair the
brooken boom, and tba Amer
loan lieutanant returned to bis ship.
Ha had aaaroely fliished bit report to
lha flratllfutcDAnt. whan a boat oame
Alongside with an offiear from a French
oorvetla whioh was lying beyond the
Duteh brig. Wa may obaerva, by-the-way,
that at tha time wa are
speaking of, there wag much coolness
aubaiating batwten (he American and
Frenoh oflloers in (he afdi(erranean,
growing out of the unfortunate fiaeaa
whleh had aeearrad a short time ba
fora, at llahon between tome Ameri
eaa and French aailors, ia which a
Frenoh offloer And an American aal
lor were killed. Tha Frenoh offloer
oame on deck, and with a demeanor
(hat waa anytMng but eonolltatory,
atat.ni that a shot from tba Ontario
had pasaad over Aha French king's
oorvetta , carrying away soma
of the rigging and a quantity of tea
man 'a ohuhiog whioh had been bung
out to dry.
The offloer, stepping to (he compan
ion way, oommunioatad this addition
al misfortune to thw first lieutenant.
"il 11 i, wa'ye shot a Frenchman!"
"Shot a Franohmant" esolaimvd
II . ia it poasible I Whan shall I
hear lha laat of (hat infernal shot I
(Joon hoard, mv dear , without
delay, and aaiiafy Monsieur that
an aooidanl."
Tba lieutenant accordingly went on
board the Frenoh corvette, and rx
plained to tha captain (ha elroutaneea
expreaaing hia deep regret at (ha ao
oideat, and offering to aend the prop
ar persona from the Ontario, to rep -ir
damagaa. Monaieur, howavnr, waa
not in as plactble a mood as Mynheer;
aa he declined lha offer to repair dam
ages, but talked of informing his go?
n.menl. and maintained a reserved
and an ollended manner, until lha
Anierin n officer's pativnoe began lo
wear out ; aaauming aa stately a de.
meanor as the Frenchman, ha gravely
ohaerved. "Sir, 1 hav informed you
of lha ciroumalanceg of thia accident,
and made )ou every apology which in
my opinion tha nature of the case re
quin ! you will be p!east d to inform
we whether you are satisfied ?" The
French e iptatn immediately relaxed,
"Oh, oui, Monaieur, eertainmeni,
o'eat aaaei, e'eat bami." The Amer
ican olfioer thereupon made his bow
and relumed to the Ontario. The
officers now indulged the hope that
his unluckly shot had terminated its
adventures wihout further mischief:
but the circumstances being such as
the first lieutenant thought should be
immediately communicated to lhe cap
tain, they remained or deck until hia
return. Captain 8. oame on board
about nine o'clock, and making a few
observations, took the first lieutenant
aside
'H ," said be "do you know
ibat you fired a shot to-day?"
"Yea, eir," said H , "I am
perfectly aware of the fact; but how
did you learn it, Captain S. ?"
"Why, the ahot atrucb an Austrian
"Struck an Austrian ?" echoed
H .
"Aye, struck an Austrian brig."
replied the captain, "the Austrian cap
tain brought the shot to Mr. OfBey's,
while we were dining."
'-Did ou actually gee the shot,
Captain 8.T said H .
"1 actually saw lhe shot; it was
brought, aa 1 told you, by the Anstri
an captain, to the consul's, while we
were at dinner, and laid 00 the ta
ble. "Where is the shot now, sir?"
"At Mr. Offley'g."
"Was any one on board the Aus
trian ship?" inquired H .
"No; but some damage is done to
the vessel."
"Thank God. then," cried H
"that I've heard the last of that shot !
Never gun fired such a shot before;
first, cut away a Dutchman'; spanker,
next a Frenchman' a rigging, now it's
hulled an Austrian ! But are you
sure, Captain S. , that you saw the shot
al Mr. Offley's ?"
A boat was sent on board the Aus
trian vessel early the next morning.
She proved to be a largo, new, strong-
built brig, of about 340 tons a Black
Sea trader. The bad, which, Alter it
glanced from the water, bed passed
the Dutch aud French vessels in an
ascending course, began to descend
before it struck the Austrian; and such
was its impelus, that it drove through
the thick, strong side of the vessel,
carried away a henvy stanchion, and
finally brought up on lhe opposite side
of the brig's bold, Among a number
of men who were At work, without
hurting a mnn. The carpenter of the

" 'What do you want?' roared the

" 'Look here! Do you see this?'
"The attetiiion of the party was at

A man lately went to the Post Of

to the delivery box, cried out,
"Louder!"
The clerk supposing the man to b
deaf, and lhal be was making a re
quest for him to speak huder, so t&gJ
he could hear, asked him in a loud
tone, the name of the person fowhom
ho wanted the letter.
"Loudetl" cried the man.
"W hat name?" yelled lhe cleik.
"Louder!" again Lawled the man,
who now supposed the clerk to be
deaf.
The clerk took a long breath, and
with all his miithl again bellowed out
in the man's face the same question,
"what name?" This was done in so
loud a tone that the echo seemed lo
return from the far off hills.
The man started back in alarm,
shouting to the very top of his big
lungs,
"Louder, sir, Louder! I told you
Louder! My name is nothing but
Louder!"
"Oh. ah! oh, ho!" said the clerk,
"jour name is Louder, eh? Didn't

to stop the sun In its course aa thua to

progreaaof the race.
The conac.ieiice ol the great maaa of
the peoplo of this coun.ry Morth snd

evil. that It ia lounded on injustice,
that it curses all claaaea who arc im
plicit in t, and thnt the steady, constant,
untiring endeavor of all ahould be to
taka measures for it ultimate and
peaceful removal. The people of the
F iv Hiulea are enanimous in this con
viction. Whatever ether opinions msy
be uttered by iudividusls here snd there
u tiler the pressure ol party necessitiee
or of pecuniary interest, there is no
mott in the Free States who will con
sent, in thn last resort, to the practical
establiahineiit and recognition of lha
doctrine that SI' vers is a blesaing,
that it is the rightful condition of socie
ty, snd the laboring claaa everywhere
should be slaves.
The political parly now dominant at

the Union, proclaim ihis startling aud
revolting doctrine. T 1 y aeek to give
it practical eff-ct, by extending this
"blesaing" into Knnsss, into sll free ter

by making ita law the law ol the whoio

may be dispersed. A timely check may
be given to the aggressions of Slavery,

SOUTH SIDE VIEWS.
What tht South gnint by thi Rtptal of
Tht f Mtouri Cumpromitt.
The repeal of thn Missouri restric
tion is vindicated by eveiy considera
tion of right and jastiee. But, there
are persons of auch sordid impulses
and narrow vision, that they appre
ciate a moaauie of public policy in
proportion only to ita yield of visible,
palpable and digjetable produet. In
lha judgment of euch individuals, the
Kansas NebraakA Bill It worth noth
ing aa an act of atonement to tha Con
stitution and reparation in lha South.
They respect it not at all for the great
principles whieh it enunoiAtes And In
corporates in tho polioy of tha Gov
ernment. Insensible to the finer mor
al resulta which constitute the aim ol
the highest and truest statesmanship,
lha grosg appetites of theae politiotsna
rejeot tho really preeioua advantages
which tha South realties from the re
peal of the Missouri restriction Bolls
lor instance, apprecialas the true value
of that measure about as much as
Klagabulus would have relished the
neotar and ambrosia of tha Olympian
repast. Talk to him of vintiioatlng
the integrity of the Constitution, of
restoring the Mouth lo its pail vquali
ty and dignity in the Union, and you
simply provoke a contemptuous
ehuekle wiili it 1 1 ymir fine phrasee.
Luckily for lha aAtisfaotion, or the
confutation, of suoh individuals as Mr.
John Minor Bolts, tba Kansas Ne
hraska aot is not destitute of ImmedU
ate, visible and tangible advanlagt to
the Internate of the South. The re
peal of tht Missouri restriction, be
aides offering atonement and repara
tion for an affront upon the South.
Tim repeal of tha Missouri reairlodon,
besides offering atonement and repa
ration for an affront upon the Sentit,
opens the federal domain to tha free
expanalou and development of Negro
Slavery,
Il ia manifest from tha history of
the country, during the laat twenty
year, that lhe Oonalittulion, in ill
practical administration, ia utterly in
adequate to the protection of the
righta of the South. Indeed, tha
powers of the oommon Government
are perverted from their benifloient
purpose, and are employed as the ao
live agtnoies of oppression and spolia
tion against (he slave holding Stales
l he I ,.uih, then, has no olher seeuri
ly but its own capabilities of defence.
It is esaen'ial tha proteolion of its
rights that il should maintain a power
iti lhe Uovornuent equivalent at least
to a negative on oppressive, iniquitous
and unconstitutional legislation.
The Abolitionists have ever had
control of a majority of the popular
vole. They now hold indisputable
ascendancy in the House of Represen
tatives. In tba Senate even the
South is in a minority of one Stale;
though fortunately a conservative sen
timent is still supreme in that branoh
of the Federal Legislature. The day
is not distant, however, when the six
teen Free Stairs will be represented
in the Sonate by the political associates
of Wilson and Seward; and when
Congress will be under the absolute
eway of Abolitionism. The South
may turn to the Executive but with a
scarcely stronger hope of protection.
Fremont may not be oleoted but the
triumph of hia parly will be postpon
ed only for a single term; unles, mean
while, the South recover! ita power in
the codfederacy, and establishes a
counterpoise to the ascendency of Ab
olitionism This then is the only salvation for
the South to recover a self-protect-ing
power in the Senate. For, if left
to its own impulse, Abolitionism will
dejeend upon Slavery with increasing
foroe and fury of atlaok; and will ul
timately subjugate tbe South or ex
pell it from the Union.
How can the South porsess itself of
this self-protection powor ? How re
cover ila ascendency in the Senate?
Oregon, Washington, Minnesota and
Nebraska, all Free States in embryo,
will counterbalance the accession to
the South by the division of Texas,
even though the North should observe
its obligation under the treaty of An
nexation. Utah and New Mexico will
in all probability send four Ami Sit
very votes to tbe Senate. So much
on one side.
The only present chance of acces
sion to the strength of the South, is
the admission of Kansas into the
Union with a Pro-Slavery Constitu
tion. In two years, at the farthest,
lhat Territory will assume the sove
reignty of a State, and in all proba
bility will adopt the institutions of lhe
South. Then the South will recover
its equality in tho Senate, and will be
competent lo the protection of its
rigklA. Though incapable of direct
ing the policy of the Government to
the end of Slavery propagandises,
(which the South desires only for the
purposes of self-defence,) it will be
fully ju il to the defeat of measures
of Free Soil aggression. With Kan
sas to back it in the Senate, the South
can compel the fulfillment f the
Texas Treaty, by resisting the admis
sion of other Free States. Wi'.h
Kansas to back it in tbe Senate, the
South can day the march of Aboli
tionism, and maintain its own rights
and independence for aq indefinite pe
riod. But. Kansas would have been a
Free State if the Missouri restriction
had not been repealed; and instead of
augmenting the power of the South,
would have recruited the ranks of
Abolitionism. Besides, then, the pos
itive f tantage of an accession of
strength which the South gains under
the operation of the Kansas Nebras
ka Act, wi- must consider the evils
averted as well as the wrongs redress
ed by the measure, if we would ap
preciate the full value of its service
to Slaver; . In the one contingency
the hopes of the patriot are flattered
by the prospect of a sectional equilib
rium, and a consequent continuance
of the Union. In inn order, he tra

A few days einoe, the Reverend J.
B. Finlev, one of tbe oideat Ministers
of the Methodist Church and one id
lhe beat known, w.ta knocked down at
Lewisburg, Preble Co,, for aome pari
he was supposed lo have taken in a
Fremont meeting. We have seen no
eharge lhat ha aald or did anything

the spirit 0 outrage and- vlah-rce,
perpetrated in (his piofessed land ol

system. Lewisburg la a small, quiet
plaeit, In a rural uounfy, and what
happened there may happen ar y where.
But, if there ware any nouhi of what
spirit pervades tho pro-slavery party,
we have it displayed In a hundred
other qua (era. Oi Monday we pub
lished an account of the murder of
two men, an aaaault un unprotected
women and ohildrun, by a mob of
Irishmen in a village of Indiana.
The only oa.isa of this savage conduct
was, that a wagon, filh-d mostly with
women, was pas , ing along, on winch
was displayed a picture representing I
a buck on his last legs. linn- was;
nothing personally olfensivo lo Any
one in this. Theru was nothing moru
aggressive than is dono at'every polit
oal procession in this country. These
are two of the moal recint examples
of violence we havu recorded, but
they arc only examples. The land is
full of them, and far as we have ob
served, ihey are almost without 1
caption on one side. It is the pro-
slavery side, which, enraged at the
danger of failure, and excited by the
experience of its wrongs, reaorts to
insult, outrage nnd violence. We)
had first the high precedent of n bul-1
Iv striking a Senator in the Senate 1
Hall. Then n hud rape, robbery,!
murder and assassin aiion in Kansas
Then we have buoksilltrs banished
from Alabama, mechanics from Caro
lina, and ciliiens from Virginia. And
lastly, in this peaceful Ohio, in a quiet;
country town, wo have a venerable
minister of lit, Gospel bludgeoned.
All this has one, and one only cause, '
that men have-dared to exercise free-1
dom of speech towards one of the
great wrongs of the land ! Alheiguti
have blasphemed the living God. and
dark iniquities are daily committed,
yet we hear of no one mobbed or j
murdered on that account. It is only
Slavery which claims 11 sacred immu
nity from all accountability ! Heaven
- - - - j
may be scoffed und laws derided, bul
let no one dare to speak for freedom!
The violence which now reigns in
this sountry commenced in Congress, j
when Herbert was allowed to shoot
down a waiter and go unpunished,
when Brooks could beat it Senator
alums' to death ami be fe tsted, prais
ed, and flatternd, for his act, and when
such men as these could find what
the world calls honorable Associate
in Congress, then full play was given
to the possession ol the rude and Vi
olent. A half dozen intoxicated,
swaggering bullies can bo found any-,
where to club a decent man, or knock
down a clergyman. When shall (his I
cease ? Wu can tell when il will noli
cease. Il will not seeae till freedom
of speech is established everywhere'
and anywhere in this land. The'
American freeman is not made of such j
soft stuff that he will yield lo bul l' s
and swaggerers. Fret dom of speech,
however, will never be fully establish
ed while slavery b lives it btaii prevail,
till it is instituted within its own inn 1
its, the same spirit of intimidation
will be continued.
Our country was never filled with
so much violence as it is now. Let 1
every man look At thn cause. Let1
him see where it belongs, who does it,
lor whatpuipose, and be will have;
btfore him one of tbe most perfect j
pictures ever exhibited of the real;
effect of great moral wrong in degr 1
ding the human character and ei
tendiug its influences through all the
convents of liberty. We have a class j
of people who say, that il nothing is
said about any of the great wrongs of'
the world, nobealy will be offended.
Of course not. The darkest sin ol
human her. t is not offended when the
conscience is asleep; when the world
obstat ves it not; when no accuser calls
it ia oueslion. "Let il alone"
The lime for that policy is past.
The moral controversies of mankind
will io on. till the right prevails Itj
is by the pre.valance of the right only
that we can end the controversy and J
produce peace. Let us then press on, j
and if the victory comes not to-day, i t
will coma belter and brighter to-morrow.
