Then-fore be it Resolved, That we. the citizens of Parkville, utterly repudiate such sentiments, emphatically deny that the said paper was the true exponeut of .oar principles upon ttie subject ot slavery; | that, on the contrary, we are now nnd ever liavc been throughout this contest pro slavery men in principle, feeling and action, 2. That we do most hcaitily rejoice in the result of the recent election in Kansas Territory, i i\ml :hail it as a signal triumph of the South over the insidious machinations of our enemies at home and abroad. That we did all in our power to effect that desired end, and that we ^ will, continue to labor for the extension of slavery iuahat territory, believing as we do that the interests- of Missouri nnd the entire South re quire that the* institution of slavery should exist . " i UIVIC1IJ. - ' 3. That we are Missourians iu spirit and feeling and that we are ready at all times aud under all circumstances to heartily co-operate with our fellow-citizens of Platte county and throughout the State, to secure aud maintain ,uur rights as pro-slavery men. This we pledge .ourselves to do. " 4. That we are Southern in feeling, principle, and interes*, and that we do most cordially approve and . endorse the recent action of our friends and neighbors, in removing from our midst the means for the publication of the incendiary sheet, the Parkvillc Luminary. .5. That those who are not for us are against ' uh; that he who evinces by Ins nets or words his opposition to the institution of slavery should uot Beside where the institution exist?. That as citizens of a slaveholding Stnte, deprecate J the settlement of those iu our midst who are op* posed to our peculiar institutions. On motion, the foregoing resolutions were i * O ? adopted as Ti whole. Oil motiou, they were sent to the Flatte Argrand Western Reporter for publication, with t ie request that the newspapers throughout the State and Kansas Territory, favorable to the institution of slavery, publish the same.

The tremendous cannonade that at our last accounts..was in progress iu and around Sebastopol will attract and hold everywhere in the civilizcd world a large share of public, attention, and involuntarily excite the intensest feeling to 1inow what is to be its result. When the terrible force of metal which the Allies were^nabled to hurl against the Russian batteries is alone look<$ at the impression is received that their triumph is certain needing only to be^dctermin- 1 ed by the continuance of a bombardment which by its severity is sure in the c:; .! to conquer. This impression, however, is weakeued by the consideration that does r.ot occur to the gene- i ?->f rauAi.v< ?hot ii k n nhvsirjil imiiossibilitv * ""'V v* I -v i ^ to continue longer tlian for a certain number of j such an incessant cannonade as had been j ' ^directed from the English and French lines; and that if such injuries were not within time ( inflicted upon the opposing defences as would justify au assault, the operations would return ' to the slow process of a mere desultory siege ( cannonade, during which the Russians again ' put in-repair and strengthen their works, and thus present the same front as before the unsuc- 1 cessful attempt at bombardment. * The^eueral bombardment commenced on the ' 9th and had been continued thirtceu days according to the latest advices. It is not alleged that this cannonade, sustained wkh such unparalleled vitror for so many days had gained for the Allies any advantage beyond establishing the superiority of their lire. The question as to ; ? ;liow much longer so tremendous a fire could be | maintained, becomes an important one if in 1 thirteen days its advantages had addei^ so sligli- ' tly to the position of the Allies. The first diilicnltv to be overcome would be the keeping*up |' and distribution of the enormous supply of nm- ' munition and projectiles required. It is not ' probable that the French or English commanders could have contemplated a bombardment extending over two weeks and their supply of I ammunition must have beet^nearly exhausted ' at the latter dates, as the despatches of*Gortschakoff notices that the few days- previous had witnossed a gradual diminution of the strength ^ *Va* a ? ro */l VUVIt. Ui v? But supposing that the supply of ammunition /could be kept up, there is a limit to the endurance of the metal of their cannons. After firing for so many days at tho rate of 120 rounds every tweuty-four tours? and in the earlier days of the bombardment the fire was ereu more active than this, the guns must neccessarily become greatly injured and ia many cases entirely uu ery ice able. We may reasoaably expect there fore to hear Ly the next steamer either that an ftsaault.has been attempted or that the bombardment has ceased,,and afikirs resumed the aspect they presented previous to the 9jh ult. The latter appears to us to be the more likely of the tmo and' will probably be followed by tho aban doproeni of tnesi*ge.? Ualtimore American, " ? AJ ,.e C.Oi.f/t.. i- i9rt iSCW .UriCilllvJ V/I kJitiHiunj oi?v... . 'K)ur advices from Havana show that the yellow fever is prevailing to a considerable extent . in the inland of Cuba, and under the circumstances, we think it behooves our new Quarantine Board to act at once anH energetically in the premises. Let them be prepared for any emergency, and not allow themselves to be taken by surprise. If there is any virtue in quarantine, now is the time to try its efficacy. Yellow fever, it has been alleged, and to the satisfaction of many'folly demonstrated, is not of local origin, but is a foreign importation. If this position be correct, there is nothing to prcwont its importation to our city by every * vessel 4hat may arrive from any of the ports or Cuba."

In reference .7 to the election of IS 10, which first ushered John r, C. Calhoun into Congressional life, the sketch t] before us remarks :?"Col. Joseph Calhoun, t was then an old man, and was desired by his ^ family to decline a re-election in favcr of his young kinsman, whose extraordinary talent, together with his peculiar views in relation to ^ the difficulties then pending between the United States and Great Britain, had made him a-favorite and rising man. lie refused indignantly, however, to yield his place in this tame way to the pretentious youngster?ventured upou a a 5011 test with him, and was defeated iu 1810, the p commencement of John C- Calhoun's public v career." 1 Patiick Calhoun, the father of the great Sena tor, was elected one of the associate district Judges for Abbeville, ou the first restoration of n of civil order and legal process, after the a Revolution.

The Sumter Banner in speaking of the late lelancholy disaster in that district, in which mr negroes were burned to death, says : .Jt seems that Sophy was hired to the jailor l.cool<; and slept with her family in the kitchen, here, on this night, for some time before the arm of lire was given, heavy fails and cries ere heard and it is now supposed that she was ic first to take fire, and that the noises heard, ere made in her struggle to extinguish her otlies. The house was near the trround and til two doors and four windows, and a grown prson with ifrdinary instinct could have easily inde thcir^scape. The doors, it seems, wete osed or the children might have made their :capo. The event has shocked the whole community, id we regret to say that it is thought by may lobe the result of negro trafficking ancl rolling spirits without licenso. This poor woinn is known to have received a small piece of loney from her employers 011 this night, tpid as seen between eleven and twelve o'clock, sturniffg, apparently drunk, from n low Irish lop near by, where sho had been in the habit, nee her residence in that vicinity, of visiting, id from whence she had frequently relumed runk.

We notice that some of our exchanges have een commenting on the tendency of thenewsnper press to scurrility, and the public taste hich encourages such a propensity. That jose^heets which are principally the mediums, f personal abuse, squabbles and invective, and ehicles of billingsgate, find mt>re readers, as If eneral rule, than those that are free from jch matters, is a humiliating proof of the favr with which the public regard this editorial ladiator ship. To relish p the abuse which ien heap up on one another in print, strikes s as being about as barbarous a taste, as was ie fondness of the Romans fot the inhuman )orts of the amphitheatre. To love thespectale of men malting savage assaults on each ther's character has as tnuch of barbarity in too ?i'i(noaa tvifK ^ulinrlif iViaib* oHa/*tra on j CIO 1*' T? i vnvuu *i IIU UVHKUV| III v 11 uvMivna vm ich others lives. If the public were to maniest its disapprobation of scurrillity and per)ual abuse in the pres3, papers of that charctei would soon disappear from the market; ie course of their cundbctoss would be speedi ' changed. In this daji of competition no inductor a newspaper will persist in a course hich meets the disapprobation of its readers. By this propensity of which we have been >eaking, the press, which when properly conacted, is one of the most powerful of all inrumentah'tM for good, is prostituted to the sse end of subserving the purposes of permal rtialice, petty malignity, disgusting aoity and insane ambition or rather an insane' SBire tor nptoHcty. Its power for good, is r ' , ' " ftihailftfc-BTi'~ -v I / . j \ I erentlv impaired. When the press has shown O *r ? - ? _ _ _ itself unworthy of respect, wheu it *js converted into anarena where men strive for each i other's destruction, and a rnediwm for conveying language that would disgrace a bar-room, it must lose to a great extent its influence, and be brought into contempt, with .all right minded persons. The press generally we do not think, is of this scurrilous character; but there arc n great many papers of that description, and j they are daily becoming more numerous, and j will cahtinue to increase in number unless the j ? public manifest its disapproval of sucli a course ! c on the part of conductors of newspapers. j ?
