The Next State Election.
Weonpy the following article from the
Athtabula Senfinel and hope that the im
portance of the subject w ill secure for it
the immediate attention of the friends of
freedom in the State. That a convention
should be held early in the spring, and
tharthe State Central Committee should
fix upon a day in order that there may be
a general circulation of the notice of time
and place is apparent. Every lover of
good and just laws and hater of oppression,
is directly interested in the overthrow
of that false and reckless party which has
olSog heaped shame and obloquy upon
the name of " Democracy." Though
overwhelmed last fall in a defeat without
parallel in the political history of the
States, they possess means of influence in
the administration of the State government
which are! potent and dangerous, and
whichan only, be met by a prompt and,
harmonious consolidation of the republi
can sentiment throughout the State. ' We
must unite and organize for the struggle.
The people are aroused from their lethar
gy by deeds of outrage upon the part of
our enemies that noble love of liberty
and right which can never wholly die in
the American heart, is now fanne 1 to a
flame, a bright and glowing flame men,
kindred in sentiment, but heretofore sepa

through the Northern States in a bond of
union which if cherished and maintained,

heart of our otherwise glorious republic,

which tyranny can neither bribe or con

work Ohio must act a noble part. By
ber action rext fall on influence will be
exerted which will be powerfully felt in
the next Presidential election ; and that
election will give character to years of
future 'glory cr shame in the history of
this nation. Let us then be up and do
ing. Nothing is more dangerous than
the satisfied apathy which follows a great
and unexpected success. The blow dealt
by the aroused freemen of the State upon

"Let none of 70a snner at a busybody in other men
waiter. x. rcter, iv, li.
This is an important exhortation to all
professing Christians, especially to North
ern abolitionists: for, strange as it may
seem, many of them profess to be Christ
ians; some of them are accredited minis,
ters of the gospel, in fellowship 'with
Southern ministers and churches. To
such, especially, I would cfTer the timely
admonition, "Let none of you suffer as a
busybody in other men's matters."
To those clergymen who openly preach
against slavery, and denounce slavehold
ers as theives mid robbers, as there is no
hope of their reformaii in, all I have to
say is, Keep aloof from the South : it is
written, "Upon the wicked he shall rain
snares." But to the rest I would use the
language of entreaty, and kindly ofiir my
advice as a lover of peace as one who
has had some experience in the religious
world who has always adapted his own
course to the existsng state of public sen-
ment, and carefully watched the "signs of
the times."
Why should you ever, especially in
the pulpit, be meddling with other men's
matters ? The Bible tells us that "every
'fool will be meddling :" but surely a wise
man a minister of the Gospel should
not make himself liable to such a charge.
As a general rule, I would recommend to
Northern clergymen to preach and pray
if they were wholly unaware of the ex
istence of slavery in our country. The
South do not ask them to praise Slavery;
they merely ask them to let it alcne.
Under ordinary circumstances there can
no necessity for the slightest allusion
it. I hey can manliest the deepei
concern for the salvation of sinners; they
sympathize with the down-trodden
oppressed: they can point to "th
dark places of the earth which are full cf
habitations of cruelty," without print
to Southern plantations. They ca
look abroad into various parts of our fal
world, and see oppression and degra.
dation end wretchedness enough to awa
all their Christian sympathies, an
excite them to prayer and effort, withou
meddling with other men's matters here
home. I am willing, how ever, to admit
there may be times when the state of

condemn the system itself as inhuman

it lacked the first element of sUtejman

it was more respectable, and might be
termed magnificent. Seven millions were

never left the couniry, and probably
never will ; it was unquestionably divi

The Great Grain Depot.
Chicago claims to be the greatest pri

have no doubt that the claim is well

A Curious Fact.
The large quarto volume sent liberal
ly through the country by member of
L-ongress, containing the "statistics of
the Lnited States Census, 1850," has
on the 12th page various blank schedules
for the use of the Marshals and their
Deputies. The scheule numbered 2, is
entitled "Naves," and in it there is a col
umn headed 'yumberof Slave Owners.'
In the instructions to Marshals and As
sistants, speciel directions are given to
return the namesof theowners of Slaves,
and the number held by each individual
On looking though the statistics of the
several States we have been unable to
discover any such return as was order
ed by this schedule and these instructions.
Why is this ? Was no return made ?
We fully believe, nay we may say we
know that ample returns were maJe to
the census beureau of the number of
Slave cwners and the number of slaves
held by each. The question arises, why
is this important information suppressed?
Are we to look for the answer in the un
favorable character of the information
embodied ? And was it for this and oth
er purposes thai Mr. Kennedy was re
moved as superintendent of the Census
Bureau, and Mr. Du Bow appointed ?
Who shall answer. At all events, the
public of the Free States wants the infor
mation suppressed. Will not some Mem
ber of Congress call for it ? Slate Journal.

Arrival of the Atlantic.
The news by the Atlantic which ar
rived on Siturday afternoon isofcompar
atively minrr interest. From the Cri
mea there is no news, advices having been
received up to Dec. 4, at which times the
heavy rains had filled the trenches, and
suspended active operations.
the untish parliament had opened.
The Queen's Saeenh w hnllv ncr.unied
. - r j r;
wun me war except one sentence in wtncn
the Queen says ' I have concluded
treaty with the U. S., by which dissen
sions long and difficult, have been equita
bly adjusted.
The next of the Speech speaks of the
army in the Crimea with admiration and
gratitude, praising the co-operation of the
French, and says she has concluded a
treaty with Austria, and calls for instant
reinforcements for the Crimea.
A private letter says that the ratifica
tion of the Austrian treaty was exchanged
at Vienna on the 14th.
If the negotiations now pending do not
produce a peace, Russia will call out the
sixteen men per thousand, equal to a
million of men to take the field as early
as possible.
The debates in the English Parliament
are both important- and interesting. By
those debates we learn that the treaty
with Austria is conditional, and that it is
so framed that Austria may, at the last
moment retire from the alliance without
breach of faith. England is going to en
list German and Swiss auxiliaries, and to
transfer a portion of the militia to do gar-!
nson duty in the Mediteranean stations,
and perhaps in the Provinces of North
America. As yet nothing has been said
of a loan or an augmentation of taxes.
The general feeling of the nation is patri
otic to a degree, and voluntary contribu
tions for relief of the army flow in with
the most lavish libeiality. Among the
latest shipments is a cargo of plum pud
dings for Christmas.
The correspondent of the New York
Times says :
"Lord John Russel, being in one of his
moments of indiscretion, has at once let
the cat out of the bag, and told the House
that the treaty with Austria is a mere
humbug. He told it in parliamentary
language, of course, but such was the
'household' meaning of his words."
The same correspondent mentions the
murder in London of a French refugee
named Bartheleney. There is a mysteri
ous silence maintained by the press in
relation to this murder, but enough has
leaked out to warrant the belief that Bar
theleney was a leader among proscribed
Frenchmen who had laid a plan to kill
Napoleon and proclaim republicanism in
r ranee.
The usual brilliancy of the assemblage
on the delivery of the Queen's Speech
was saddened by the appearance of many
of the nobility in weeds of woe," show
ing that the upper families have lost many
relatives in the war.

our readers' curiosity should be un

a most fitting and retributive provi
