CIl.UIDOX, OHIO, FRIDAY, APltlL 11. ISGO. The Two Lovejoys. Owen Lovtjoy, the Republican mem Iter of Congress, from Illinois, whose late . rcmarlta to greatly excited the Chivalry, ia a, brother of Rev. Elijah P. Lovcjoy, . vtho was murdered at Alton, by a Pro Slavery mob, on the night of November Till, 1837. He has not forgotten the murder of Lis brother, nor is the recollec tion of that crime calculated (o mnko him love Slavery. There was meaning in those words which he o'.iered in the face of the defender of Slavery in the House : 'You shod the h'.ood of my brother twenty year ago, and I nm here free to spent, my mind 1" The Cleveland Herald "re vives a few of the incidents connected with the murder of Mr. Lovejoy, that its readers may feel tha full force of lhej tearing and language of his brother." It says : The Rev. Elijah P. Lovcjoy was the ed- ' itor of the Alton Observer, un ani-lavery paper, pi inted tit Alton, Illinois, right over the river from Missouri. Tho press of tho Observer was thrco times duslrnyod liy a mob tho last tlma on NoTombor 7th, 1837, nt which timo Mr. , Litrijoy was killed.

Mr. Lovejoy, nt tho door of tho build ire, received four balls in his broaht, and foil a corpse. Tho moh brought out the press, and, having smashed it, throw the pieces into tho lior. What a scene wns presented in tho House ef Representatives, during the delivery of Mr. Loveioy's remarks! Could the - Chivalry but fee themselves ns they are seen by the intelligent freemen of the country, they would bo little inclined repeat the ridiculous farce enacted by them on that occasion. How like many overgrown and insolent boys, spoiled by indulgence, appeared the Rep resentatives of the Couth, when, with manly courage, Lovtjoy poured a volley of unwelcome truths into their midst 1 How childish and impotent their rage ! What could indicate their fulse education more plainly, than their complaints of Mr. . Lovejoy's menacing tanguugo and ges ture ? All honor to Owen Lovejov I He may bo impulsive, but there is need more men in Congress, who possess manly spirit.

The Republicans of Rhode Island have sustained a partial and temporary defeat, but the Democrats cannot, therefore, claim a victory. Mr. Sprague, the Ccili tion candidate for Governor, is elected by a majority of 1,571. The Senate will stand, 19 Republicans to 13 Coalitionists, and the House 36 Republicans to 35 Co alitionisls. The Cleveland Herald, in speaking of the Rhode Island election, do fines the position of parlies in that State, as follows: Tho regular Republican Convention nominated loir Governor Mr. Paddleford. Jealousy waa excited towards the Conven tion on the pnil of n large number of Re publicans who claimed that Mr. Puddle ford did not represent the Republican creed. Two conseivaiivo Republican State Con- were held at I'rovidence, both venlions repudiated Pitddleford's nomination, and united on Mr. ftprague a Vie true expo fii of Jlepvblicun doctrine More than this, nm, Ii. bprague, whom, the Detnociats have i ui been voting for, was u candidate at the Regu lar Republican Convention, and his friends alleged that tiaud deleu'eil him. 1 he Young Republicans, in Stale Convention, (hen nominated Sprague as their candi date, and Mr. S. came out in a card in the Providence Post, ( Democratic, )r.d stated that he was a Republican, had always voted thnt ticket, and should coulinue do so. On that the roil slated that in case Mr. Sprague should be elected would cot he a Democratic victory, and wouid not so claim it. The House Bill Abolishing Polygamy. A Washington letter says: WASHINGTON.

Tho first section begins ihus: 'Thai if any person or persons, being mur- riod, shall, during iho life of tho formoi husband or wil'u, marry another person any Territory nf tho United Slates, or oihor pluco except tbo District ot Columbia, over which the United Siutos possess exclusive jurisdiction, shull,on conviction thorcut, tee. This, it Is contended, establishes, by impli cation, polygamy in Washington, and deulares exulusiro Congressional jurisdiction over the Torrilories ; a question somewhat mooted in these days ot popular soveroigu ty. When this provision win read in Senate, it created no littlo morriinont. The, Polygamy Rill which has passed the House, was introduced by Mr. Nelson, South American from Tennessee. It re ceived the support of many Democrats. How do these men harmonize this action with the principles of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill, which allows the people of the Ter ritories "to form and regulate their mestic institutions in their own way 7" Is not Polygamy a "domestic institution?" And, if Congress has tho power to pro hibit Polygamy, why not Slavery T Northern Democrats bad better at lake the Southern ground, that Slavery is the highest law, for they, can con sistently maintain no other.

State of Affairs in Europe. The London Pout believes that at pres ent the question stands thus : Sardinia ia bout to cede savoy end Nice oy treaty io France. France will then consult the population whether they choose annex ation to France or a separate independent dency. If they select the latter, then Sa voy will be constituted an inaepenueni Stnte. If the former, the result will be communicated lo the great powers. In the case of serious disapproval and oppo sition on Ihe part of European States, which however is not anticipated, then France would probably co nenl lo the es tablishment of Savov as an independent State. What Is positive, is, that France will never consent, under any circum stances, to the ic'eniion of what are call ed the French slopes of the Alps by Sar dinia, enlarged as ilit y will be by a power inferior only to I russia. Ihe daily Jewi of the 17th says thnt f the statement respecting the mode of ceding Savoy be correct, the event will be more serious in us ultimate necessary con sequences than any which haa occurred air.ee the fall of the great Napoleon. Henceforth not even the most sanguine will be able lo believe in the maintenance of peace. Europe has to reckon with a power which tramples on the most sacred rights, and which has cast off respect for anything but martini force. Sooner or latcj Europe will find itself commpelled in self defence, to confine this power within the Inn Us of law. ihe Herald uses the same language. Effect the Census of 1860.
