Te Legislature recently passed a
law ordering three-fourths of a mill
levy on the dollar to aid the- families
of the volunteer's ivliich money, when
collected, is to bfl distributed to the
Several counties in proportion to the
number enlisted from each county.
The same law requires' Township As
isessoss while making their annual as
sessments of personal property to take
an enumeration of the number who
have volunteered in their several town
ships, and to return the , same to the
Auditor. That levy as made will raise
bput sixty dollars per man for each
person in the '.service from-Ohio. It
is therefore important that the Asses
sors as well as the citizens of the sev
errl townships in the county should in
terest themselves iti the matter.and see
that none are omitted, as each volun
iteer omitted in their return would be

"Unconditional Union," vCon
MMullonal l'liiou." -
- The latest test of loyalty which the
Republicans propose to make the peo
ple subscribe to, is what they call 'Un
conditional Union." The question
seems to be: "Are you an Uncondi
tional Union man?" If you answer
"No," you are held to be a traitor,
and must be dealt with.
It is impossible to concentrate more
of the very .essence of Despotism in
any two words of the language, than
is contained in those two: Uncondi
tional Union. , It is Unconditional
Union which Austria imposes upon
Hungary, and upon the States of Italy.
Unconditional Union is Unconditional
Despotism. ' It is nothing else. : It
means the supreme rule, the "uncondi
tional" sovereignty, of arbitrary pow
er. t
It is enough for us to say, and enough
for the Democracy to say: "We are
in favor of- Constitutional Union."
This expresses the highest degree bf
loyalty to the Government, to all in
tents, and for every purpose, in which
the government is not a usurpation.
We will "go to the country" on the
issue, whether we are to have Consti
tutional Union or Unconditional Union
whether this shall be a Free Gov
ernment or a Despotism. We do not
fear the verdict.
In declaring the doctrine of uncon
ditional Union, the Republicans have
made a bold advance. It is not their
accustomed way of doing things. They
usually accomplish ' their purposes by
indirection, professing to desire one
thing, while industriously effecting an
other. Now probably with a strong
reliance upon the aid of bayonets
they boldly announce their design to
substitute Unconditional for Constitu
tional Government a nation of sub
jects, instead of a Republic of citizens.
We shall see what we shall see.

you still slumber in the belief that the

Tho following letter from Henry
Clay was writteu to the Rev. lr. Col
ton, one of Mr. Clay's warmest politi
cal and personal friends, and may be
found in Colton's Life of Henry Clay,
The letter speaks for itself: ;
Ashland, September 2, 1813. .
"Mr DBA Ma: Allow me to (elect a
subject for one of your tracts, which, treated
in your popular and condensed way, I think
would be attended with great and good effect.
I mean Abolition.
'It is manifest that the ultras of tbat par
ty are extremely miacKevioua, and are hurry,
in; on the country to fearful consequences.
They are cot to be conciliated by tbe Whigs.
Engrossed with a single idea, they care fur
nothing e'.se. ' '
"And yet they would see the Administra
tion, of the Government precipitate the na
tion into absolute ruin before they would
lend a helping hmd to arrest its career.
They treat worse, denounce most, those who
treat them best, who eo far agree with them
as to admit slavery to be an evil. Witness
their conduct toward Mr. Dcigga and Mr.
Adams, In Massachusetts, and toward me. '
"I will give you an outline of the manner
in which I would handle it. Show the origin
of slaverr.' Trace its introduction to the
British Government. Show how it is dispos
ed of by the Federal Constitution; that it is
le(t exclusively to the States, except in regard
to fugitives, direct tuxes and representation.
Show that the agitation of the question in
the free States will first destroy all harmo
ny, and finally lead to disunion, poverty and
perpetual war, the extermination of the Afri
can race ultimate military despotism. ' j
"But the great aim and object of your
tract should be to arouse ie Mioring cJassc cf.
the free Statai against AWivon: Depict
the consequence to them of immediate Abo
lition. The slaves.being tree, would be dis
persed throughout tho Union; the would enter
into competition with the free Mmrer with the
American, the Irisa, the German reduce
bis wages, be confounded with him, and af
fect his moral and social standing And as
the ultras go boih for Abolition and Amalga
mation, show that their object is to unite in
marriage the laboring white man and black
woman, to reduce the white laboring roan to
the despised and degraded condition of the
black man.
"1 would show their opposition to Coloni
zation. Show its humane, religious and pat
riotic aim. That they are those whom God
has separated. Why do Abolitionists oppose
Colonization? To keep and amalgamate to
gether two races in violation of God's will,
and keep the blacks here, that thev may in
terfere with, degrade and debase the laboring
whitesl Show that the British Government
is co operating with the Abolitionists for the
purpose of disolving the Union. I am per
lectly satisfied that it will do great good.
Let roe hear Irorn you on this nbject.' -?.'

Five years earlier than this (1838)
the United States Senate adopted the
following 'resolutions offered by Mr.
Clay: v,;.,.;? .i- n lt..r
"Resolved, That when the District of Co
himbii was ceded by the States of Virginia
and Maryland to the United States domestic
slavery existed in both of these States in
cluding the ceded territory, and that as it
still continues in both of them, it could not
be abolished within the district without a
violation of that good faith which was implied
in the cession, and in the acceptance of the
territory, nor, less compensation were made
to tbe proprietors ol slaves, without a maoi
fest infringement of an amendment to the
Constitution of the Unitel States nor with
out exciting a degree of just alarm and ap
prehension in the States recognizing slavery,
far transcending in mischievous tendency any
possible benefit which could be accomplshed
by the alQ!i i n. . ,
" Resolved therefore. That it is the deliber.
ate judgement of the Senate, that the insti
tution of domestic slavery ought not to be
abolished wilhin the District of Columbia;
and it earnestly hopes that all sincere friends
of the Union and ot harmony and general
tranquility will cease to agitate this disturb
ing question " -
The Abolitionists (would we miss it
much if we were to say the Republi
cans?) are resolved, under the specious
name of union, to make this a war a
gainst the Uuion . for , the extermina
tion of slavery with tho Union. All
who arc- opposed to a war against sla
very and for the destruction of the Un
ion under the Constition of '87, are to
be branded as secessionists and trai
tors. :;'.'
Tne Journal of this . city publishes
in its yesterday morning's issue a let
ter from Washington under the date
of the 17th' inst., in' which the writer
says, referring to the President's sign
ing the District of Columbia Abolition
bill-r."Yesterday .the government aim
ed its first blow against slavery.'! And
again "The President has not paid the
whole the country ,., owes , slavery by
signing the bill" "This will do for a
beginning; but God's hand cannot stop
here." Thus, the- Journal's -corres-.
pondent goes on,? belching forth the
abolition trash, and giving the rworld
to understand that no man can be loy

ist. In the ', North,: Jhe' extremists

In a late debate- In Congress, Mr.

. In the early part of the session, Mr.

a speech in the House:
"For one, I shall not vote another dollat

Again, during a late debate, Mr.
Bingham, a Republican ' member from
Cadiz, and Chairman of the Judiciary
Committee in the House, said
- ''II -the gentlemen annexes no condition to
his loyalty then his remarks about the use of
this revenue and the divine civilizer of Afti-

slaves and slavery untouched m the Union,
were simply meaningless) and out not to have
been uttered. He said,, if you allow, under
any condition, tbe cotton States to depart
from this Union, then Kentucky would not
stay in the Union; and annexed the condi
tion that you must not, in the great effort to
retain the cotton State, . touch slavery.
Who, in the name of Heaven, wants the cotton
States in the Union or in any other place tluin

delivered a speech at the late Radical
Republican meeting at Cooper Insti-.
tute, New York, in which he said:
"Thoie were men in the oith and.South

When the Lecompton Constitution
was " before Congress it encountered
earnest opposition, and was finally re
jected on the ground that it forced
slavery upon an unwilling people.
The whole Republican party which
previously opposed the doctrine of pop
ular sovereignty, suddenly became en
amored of that principle, and insisted
that the will of the people of Kansas
should not be ignored by its admission
under a constitution which did not
meet with their approval.
The Senate of the United States has
just passed a bill for the abolition of
slavery in the District of Columbia,

out, was recently conducting a religious con

speak, who preaches politics regularly every
babbath in the pulpit.and who alter alludrfig
to his hopes and fears io a religious point ol
view, branched out in reference to the state
of tbe country, saying that so great was his
devotion to the stars and stripes that he
had enlisted; and begged an interest in the
prayara ol the church, that he might be pro
tected by Divine rrovidence on the battle
field, and that if he should fall a victim to
the bullets of the enemy he might be pre
pared for the change.

with patriotic fervor the brave heart of our
worthy minister, and he consequently spoke
a few words ol encouragement to the hero.

In a late Speech at Nashville Andrew John

ers secession and abolition.
There are two parties in existence who
want dissolut on. . Slavery and a Southern
Confederacy is the hobby. . Sumner wants to
break up the Government, and so do the Ab
litionists generally. They bold that if sla
very survives the Union cannot endure. Se
cessionists argue that if the Union continues
slavery is lost. Abolitionists want no com
promise; but they regard peaceable secession

The Testimony of Wendell
Less than a year ago Wendell Phillip '
made a speech at the Tretnont Temple at .
Boston, til which he said:
"The anti-slavery party had hoped for and '
planned disunion, because it would lead to ,
tbe development of mankind and the eleva
tion of the white." ' ' . .
And then he exnltingly adds. ,''- T ',
'"In S'X months I expect a separation.
The game is up, the Union is at an end' We '
have purchased nothing but disgrace. ' The
North ia bankrupt in character as in monev. -
Be lore the summer ends we shall see two1
confederacies." ; . j
Tbe Demo rat!i have always charged that
the Abolitionists planned disunion, and here
it will be seen Wendell Phillips, their !eadef -admits
tbe charge to be true. Wbat are we,
to think ol the Union pio'esuions of those
who fraternize with such a man and add
to the power of such a party? . ' , '

While Colonel Osterhaus was gallantly at

ond day, a scargeant of the twelfth Missouri
requested the captain of his company to send
his wile's portrait, which he had taken Irom
his bosom, to her address in St. Loois, with
his dying declaration that be thought of bef
in his last moments. ; -
"What is that foi?" asked his captain. '
"You are not wounded, are you'f ;'
"No," answered : the sergeant; , "bot t.
know I shall be killed to day. I have been
in battle before, but I never felt as f do now. '
A moment ago 1 beoame convinced my time ,
had come, but how I connot toll. Will you
gratify my request? Remember I speak to
you as a dying man." . -
"Certainly, my brave fellow; but you will
live to a good old age with your wife. ' Do
not grow melancholy over a fancy or a1
dream." : :';-.'., , , ,.-'(-.
"You will see,'! was the responsS.
The picture changed hands. The Sef-f
geant stepped forward to tbe front of the
column, and . the Lieutenant perceived him
no more. ' ' -
At 'he oarop fire that evening, the offloera
inquired for the sergeant. He was riot pres
ent. He had been killed three hours betore
by a grape shot from one ol the enemy's bit-
teries..-. , t . . , .
