Brutal Outrage on a Citizen of the United
A Jato issuo of tho Toronto (Panada)
Xf?a?ler contains a lon?? and vivid narrativo by
M, F. Lovoridge, publisher nti<3 editor of tho
Troy Morning and Weekly News, of tho in
dignities and cruelties lie su Herod nt tho
hands of Rl?ck Republican ruinous. Did
other demands permit wo would .transfer to
our columns this entire accouut. Wo arc ob
liged to confine ourselves to a limited Space.
- In tho following paragraph this gentleman
tells tho subjects of Queon Victoria who ho
is and. what lie hhs done :
I nm tho publisher and editor of tho Troy
' (N. Y.) Morning and Weekly News-an
office purchased by my own exertions My
father, tho lato G\ Lovcridgo, edited tho Troy
'Mnil jn 1838-'89, in tho sumo placo. * It was
u Whig poper that ho printed. My sheet
was "Democratic Whether tho popor was
nblo or vapid, whether, it liad fivo hundred pY
fivo' thousand of a circulation, docs not mat
ter ; it was tny paper-my property-and de
voted to thc great causo of National Democ
racy. It was my means of livelihood-and
1 worked by day. r.nd by night to inculoato
such views of national polioy ns animated my
party, which comprises a very largo and res
pectable minority of tho people of thc State
bf New York.
From the time of tho secession of South
Carolina, I have urged tho recognition of tho
Confederate States of tho South by thc Fed
eral Government. lavery hour it was delay
ed strengthened tho secession causo. Mr.
Lincoln's imbecile policy could havo no effect
but to unite the ontiro South. Had I been
of'tho Republican faith, my policy must have
been tho same j for I know what thc proud,
inoney-tnaking North will not sec, that, they
cannot cooroo tho South. They moy protract
tho war twon ty years, and drain tho nation of
its best blood and treasure, but they eau only
crush tho South when every man within its
borders bleaches his bones iu thc golden sun
shine of its patriotic laud.
Whilo tho populace'was under tho madness
aroused by tho news of tho fall of Sumter,
Mr. Lovcridgo boldly denounced the war upon
thc South ns barbarous and foolish. This
course brought down upon him tho threats
and ourses of tho crazy multitude, but in
spite of tho danger ho continued to maintain
thc cause ho had taken. His issuo of tho 17th
oontaincd among otiicr offensive things, a stri
king letter to Horace Clrceloy. Tho paper
lia4 been circulutcd, and Mr. Lovcridgo wos
putting up tho daily mail, when tho Mayor,
Ccorgc 33. Warren, accompanied by two men
adorned with rosettes, carno into his office.
Tho Mayor advised him to modify thc tone
of his paper, and admonished him if he did
not he would suffer violence, openly admitting
that ho had not thc moans to protect him. A
few uaiuutcs after tho Mayor left, tho follow
ing socno occurred :
A crowd of twenty mon, all wearing ro
settes of red, whito and blue, then marohed
up to my office Some of thom had small
flogs iu their caps. I recognized the most of
them, as faces I had seen, but could not call
thom by name, nor loc?te them.

The Ringleader--Wo como to warn you,

Prof. Low's iErial Voyage
We condenso a few sentences from the
Professor's own statement of his late balloon
voyage, from Cincinnati to Unionvillo S.' C.,
in niue hourn, written by request of many la
dies and gentlemen living in thc sentions over
which he traveled :
His preparations for thc vo}'ago were com
pleted on Friday, tho 19th 'April. At 12
that uight ho commenced inflating his globe,
there was hardly a breath of air stirring, and
thc moon and stars shone brightly. At three
o'clock tho work was completed, about til reo
quarters of on hour more passed in making
attachments, adjusting instruments, consist
ing of a fiuc mercurial baromctor for measu
ring altitudes, tho altim?tre, for getting lati
tude, a telescope, thermometer, and a patcut
double polar linc needle coinpnss. Thus pro
vided, with a quantity of provisions, hot cof
fee, fruits, blankets, and a number of copies
of thc morning papers, just, from thc press,
and a good supply of ballast, thc new air di ip
gracefully ascended tho length of the rope.
Seeing that everything was right, the profes
sor bade adieu to thc friends who had so gen
erously denied their rest to assist him, and in
another moment tho " Enterprise " mounted
thc ethereal vault in a north-westerly linc.
Thc beauty of thc scene hero bailies descrip
tion ; the moon had set, and thc city of 170,
000 sleepers, with its thousands of gas-lights
glittering through tho pitchy darkness was in
describably beautiful. Through nu atmos
phere ns still us death, thc bold navigator as
cended higher and higher, until thc gas lights
gradually grew small ns the twinkling stars,
and ho felt that he was floating through the
heavenly orbs. At d. o'clock and fifteen min?
utcs, a grey light appeared in thc cast, and
tho city of Cincinnati, with lier tiny lights
still glittering through tho foggy mist, was fa
ding away on tho west north-west horrizon,
showing that his coast was a little south of
(. " At a quarter to 5 o'clock, tho light of
day was spread over thc surface of tho earth,
tho stars had disappeared, and thc beautiful
farms of tho Ohio Valley wcro spread in love
liness. At 6 o'clock and 5 minutes the sun
showed a golden rim above tho horrizon and
soon sent a golden shower over tho. globe over
head. Thc rays of thc sun drying the at
mosphere enabled the car to ascend tin alti
tude of 11,001) feet. At this height, my ap
petite hoing sharp, 1 partook of a hearty
breakfast, ofter which I took my glass for thc
purpose of hunting out objects of interest ; I
discerned high peaks of mountains on thc
eastern horizon. At nine o'clock I was pass
ing over thc northern range of thc Cumber
land'mountains, and herc my course changed
tothesouth-?ost. Below and for miles around,
WOB a barren wilderness, but ot some distance
ahciid I could seo an occasional farm house.
Being desirous of ascertaining with moro cer
tainty my exact position, I lot off gas, ohd
gradually approached tho earth. Sccinjj
some persons ot work in ? field, I asked,
" Whiit St'oto is this?" Tho men, without on
sworing, looked in all directions but upwards,
and fearing that I should miss them, I again
sang out at thc top of my voice, when tho i'e
ply came, " Virginia-" they still looking ft
a clusfor of bushes, from whenoo probublj
came the echo. I thou naked what county
and threw out somo sand to clear tho top3 o
sonic tall tress. This struck thc gio?nd wit!
. aspottcr, and caused bh.Opf toloog up, and in
stead of answering tho question, a yell of hor
ror arose from thom, arid if tho fleetness p
foot- is an/ indication of fright, .thoti tho;
must have bcoti terribly frightened."
" I WOB now mounting iipvvards, and ot li
mjnutcs to 10 o'clook, I orossod tho Allogha

a lijtlo south of cast, and knowing ?lint tho ",
const in that direction was ott uninhabited 1

milfyad, i descended to look out a good place.
1 heard the firing of cannon, and concluded
I was nour soino village, ami on nearing tho
carthy over'a plantation, caused grefit cousteir
uatiou ariiong.tho inhabitants. They would
riot rondo? mo any neslstance, but threatened i
destruction to the " hellish cbutrivanco V that
had frightened thom so ; but I learned that I n
was in tho township of Spnrtanburg, near thc i
lino of North and. South, CuroHna. They i
would-not b?liovo that I had left Cincinnati <
thrit thorning, ?ind informed mo, that they,'
would bc vory thankful if I would leave, and 'i
ordered tho negroes to let go tho ropes. I i
ascended 7000 feet, pud traveled pbout twen- ]
ty miles fWthcr cast, which occupied.half on
hour, during which .time 1'heard many dis? i
tdinrgesof what I took to bo musket?. Not i
knowing, but being apprehensive that ?Ho;
globe was tho- obj cot of firing, I prepnVcd for i
making sjgunls, when 1 should again near tho i
earth. Thus prepared with hat in ono hand I
and valve ropo in tho othor, I began to do- i
scend. When within half a milo of thc <
earth I heard Joud cries .of terror, and sow 1
people running in all directions, but was de- <
termiuedto land this time, conic what would. I
lu five minutes moro tho anchor took .a firm i
hold in ft ?hort scrub oak, and tho car gently |
touched the ground I snw several heads
peeping around n log hut-I called thom, but !
thoy took no notice, until I threatened to cut 1
looso and run over them, when two whito 1
boys, thrco old ladies and three negroes ven
tured within 20 feet of nie. A gust of wind
touched thc balloon, and they ninden stampede, i
but when I told them it was fastened, und i
could hot hurt them,' they returned in coinpn- i
ny with a stalwart youngwoman, six feet high 1
and well proportioned, and took hold of thc : .
cur. I inquired what was thc matter in thc
house, and was told that several, old persons 1
were praying, ns they thought thc day of \
judgment bad conic. I then nsked if nny ]
white mon were ubout. They said they ex- I
pectcd them every minute, that they saw the
great thing coining mid had run for their guns. <
Men arrived with muskets, threatening dc- I
struction to thc "devil" that could travel i
through the air ; olio added that he followed ;
it ten miles and had shot at it six times. The i
tall young woman assured mc there was no |
danger, for all the men then in thc neighbor- |
hood were cowards, thc brave ones having I
gone to the wars. Procuring a team, the I
machine being pucked, under a guard of nillo t
armed men, 1 arrived at Cnionvillc, and ar- I
rived in front of u stone building with asnuill I
checkered window. A council was hold with :
thc jailor, who refused to allow any such uni- 1

fouud porsons of intelligence who assured me <

TiIK DUTY OF ALI,.-- War, at best, is n
Ired ful scourge. Most wars ordered or per
mited by God, arc judicial punishments for
bc wickedness of a nation. Often nations
Hjiially wicked, aro allowed lo cxecuto His
mrposos on each other, and nations are soine
iniCB divided to scourge each section. Our
?resent case may bo one of this sort. Pcrson
d wickedness has been rampant in thc coun
,ry for yoars. . Political degeneracy, official
?irruption, fraud, trickery, and moral dogrn
lation have infested and ruined and porvort
;d the government. ?W./?ak. wicked men have
nought it to the precipice over which i| has
umblcd. Yet we cannot doubt that God has
1 mission for our country, yet unaccomplished.
Upon this land rests thc responsibility and
.he.duty,' of spreading thc light and enlar
ging the area of civil and religious libertyT
This perhaps, can bc better done by two
?. three Repuldics, than by one.
God may chastise us. -What is our duty
n such a. caso '( First, let us ' not fight
igainst. God. Ho must bc propitiated by TO
icntence, humility, and reformation. Kosist,
r'ouv enemies, but propitiate Johov/di. lie
s just and merciful, Repent towards God,
mt fight for ymir country, for your rights, for
r'our wives and your children. Fight, but
?roy.' Hujiish intemperance, swearing and li
;entiousncss from your armies and your peo
n?a. If you must figlit, yet repent lind pray,
mt fight, and God will boar and forgive.
