PRINCIPLES OF THE AMERICAN
PARTI OF OHIO.
I. The unlimited freedom of Religion dis

tical influences upon tbe atfairs of government
equality of rights to all naturalized Emi
grants who are thoroughly Americanized, and
eve no temporal allegiance, by reasou of their
religion highur than that lo the Constitution.
II. Vo interference with the rights of citi

tbH protection of law to all who honestly cwi
rate from love uf liberty ; but the exclusion of
foreign paupers and felons, aud a refusal to
extend the right of suffrage to all who come
hereafter iiutil they shall have resided 21 years
in the Uuiled Slates and complied with tbe
aturaltzation Laws.
III. Opposition to all political organizations
composed "exclusively of Foreigners, and to
Foreign Military Companies, and to all attempts
to exclude the Bible from Schools supported by
the trovernment."
IV. Slaver is local hot national : we op
vim-a its extension in any of our territories, and
the increase of its political liower by the ad-
missioa-inlo the Uniou of nuy Slave Slate or
tberwise: aud we demand of tbe General Gov
eminent an- immediate redress of the great
wrongs whicli have been inflicted upon the
cause of Freedom and the American character
by the repeal uf tha Missouri Compromise, and
the introduction. ot Slavery into Kansas in vio
lation of law,, by the force ol arms, and tueue
it ruction of tlMc'ulective franchise.
V. Id humble imitation of the wisdom of
Washington, we oppose all intervention in the
affairs of Foreign stales ; yet on all proper oc

a iiberju system oi runiicociionis.
.THOS. SPOON ER, President,
Jobm Z. Rees, Secretary.
Prospects of the Coming; Election
From every part of tho State tho news
are of the most cheering character. The
l'rieods of Freedom and America are filled
with confidence : and the rotten Democra
cy behold with staring eyes the dark cloud
cf oblivion that will soon envelope tliem
in its dusky folds ; leaving nought but the
memory of their Dins behind. Tho Amer
if an Republican ticket is composed of men
who ran neither be bought by tbe smiles
or. awed by the frowns of a corrupt admin
istrelivn.' At its head stands the name of
a man j ever a fearless advocate in free
dom's cause who never , bowed his nrck
to a .Southern joke, or failed to expose
their nefarious schemes. Next comes the
fearless Ford, an Ameeican in heart and
one of tho noble band that refused to aid
in binding bis brethera to the car of Sla
very, and taught the South to know that
there was a party at the North that woul
not bend like the pliant. Democracy, at
their wJL , Tbe bulatico of the State tick,
tj, are good wen Hud true, aud their elec
tion will do honor to the 'Buckeye State,
Tbaltbey-caR be elected, does not admit
of a duubt. The Democrat themselves
noVf it, aud.liciKT the avidity with which
the seize upon the forlorn lope uf creating
a division between tie AmeriqanB and Re-
pubjioans. Take notice; overt one, of the
sudden lovo with whioh they are attacked j
for "Old Cxat Whio.8,'!- Tho dear old
nicnt whata'chango has come o'er the
spirit of democracy dream, within the
last two years. Tbey (the Whigs) are no
longer "Blue light Federalists," 'Tories,'
Ac Oh, no ! "We want your help this
Fall, in order to enable us to Jivt at the
expense of the public a little longer, and
if you will only vote for us, you will be a
noble set of fellows, but if you don t I
well, we'll keep quiet until after the elec-
tion, and .then stand from under.". What
sympatbetic beings democrats are, anyhow. J
In the plenitude of they generosity, they
even embrace Father Trimble, and exhort
the Americans to vote for him, and vindi-
cate their honor by permitting Medul to 1
occupy the Governor's Chair for another I
term. But it won't do. Tho attempt is
little too barefaced ; the cloven foot sticks
through the shallow covering, and shows
the strait to which the inventors are re-
duced. The Whigs have fought too long,
face to face with tho self-styled Democra-
cy ; and know them too well to be caught
in such a silly trap.
As for Trimble, it is sheer folly to think
of wheedling Americans into the support
of a man nominated by a few pro-slavery
citizens of Cincinnati, and then to cap the
climax, tbey try to palm him upon a par-
ty for which he has no sympathy. V e
do not believe that Trimble will receive
thirty votes in Jefferson Couuty.

that the Republican ticket will be elected
by from 1500 to 2000 uiujotity.. The'tal

rue the opposition party is hard at work,
by day and by night, canvassing the coun

false rumors. It is a regular battle, bc
tween the people on the one side, and
Hunker Democratio office seekers on the
other, and it is our opinion that the peo
ple will triumph on the second Tuesday in
October, by electing their own candidates.
Wc have now in tbe field oue of the best
and most popular tickets ever presented to
the voters in Jefferson county. Look at
the men whose names are placed upou the
American Republican ticket. Examine
into their antecedents, and look at their
present position. They are every man of
the anti-elavcry to the core. Possessed of
all the requisite qualifications for the va
rious offices with which their names stand
connected, "honest and competent,"
they can not but receive tho hearty sup
port of an enlightened and virtuous peo

"Tho policy of the South basnowceas-

The second Tuesday of Octocer is near,
and all who "are desirous of freeing our
State from tho rulo of the sham democra-
cy of 1855, should be at work. If every
man who is dissatisfied with the present
administration, both State and National,
will but put forth a slight effort, they, will
be driven like' chaff before the wind.
What True American is willing to submit
any longer to the political despots, who
now hold tbe reins of government ? "Wo

The day of reckoning is at band, and they

BLOODY AFFAIR AT FORT CALIIOUN.
A Correspondent of tho Milwaukie News
writing from Omaha City, under date of
August 28, gives us the following account
of an affair which took place at tort tal
houn :
"I am compelled to add another to the
list, already too long, of melancholy events
which have transpired near this place.
Fort Calhoun it the county scat of Wash
ington county in this territory. It is lo
cated on the Missouri, about 18 miles
above horc, and about three miles below
De Soto. The latter place was its rival
in the last Legislature, for becoming the
point where iustico should radiate.
Those two points were seized upon by
the land speculators as town sites. To
secure the necessary legislation in behalf
of thoao, cumcr loU, sWrrS, kaA fraotioue
of shares became staple currency around
the Cnoitot last winter, and the result of
the whole matter was, that several of the
most influential members succeoded to a
part proprietorship of the county scat, as
oue of their legislative perquisites. A
law was passed requiring Judge Bradley
to hold a term there, and a small building
was erected for his accommodation, or
rather, perhaps, to mark the exact locality
of tbfl countv seat. The claim rules re-
quire town proprietors to make a certain
s
amount of improvements, as a condition
upon which they will be protected, All
this they, at Fort Calhoun, had neglected
to do. A few weeks since, a man named
Davis, encouraged, it is said, by De Soto,
moved into his bouse and jumped the Cap
itol.
The intelligence was soon carried abroad
by some tone traveller who was passing
that way, and the inhabitants of Fort Lai

rades. Davis and his party retired to the
door of the bouse, and, as they did so,

the insane spirit of land speculations."
iarDr. Wilson Brown, LicutenantGov
it of Missouri, died, at his residenca in that
State, on tho 27th ult, in the 51st year of
his ago. Tho Dr. was a native of Mary-
. land,"and has held several important posi
tions prior to being elected Lieut. .G over-
nor. In 13o4 he was elected Grand Mas

GOV. SHAimOJr. ..
The New York Evening Post, an old
and reliable Democratic' paper, does not
doubt tho report of Gov. .Shannon's speech
at Westport, and bis disposition1 to Inflict j
Slavery apon Kansas. We eopy its re
marks, tod comnrcRtltbetft totho attention
of tht people of Ohio i . " ' . I
"Siar Shannon, voted for the Nebraska I
bill, with tbe ' evtaiiity of offering bis
constituents, but with the promise that Mr.
Pierce would take care of Lira if they
dropped biui at the noxt election, there can j
of course be no Work too dirty or shame
ful for him to do ' '
Those who in their simplicity thought
that Gov. Reedor wa8 removed from his
office on account of certain speculations i
wild lauds, which be never made, but only
asked Mr. Pierce's permission to make,
will, we think, now be undeceived. The
Kansas legislature could not get on with
him. He was retained in office long after
his offer to speculate, until it was clear that
he could not be relied upon as a confeder
ate of Atchison and Strfngfellow ; but the
moment he began to irefust his signature
to their laws aud 'their validity, he
was summarily dismissed. His place was
first offered to one who it was well known
would not accept it so well known, that
the telegraphio dispatch which brought
from Washington the news of his appoint
ment, brought also the intelligence that he
would certainly refuse it. Shannon, how
ever, has no suoh scruples; he accepted
the offer with alaerity, and set out imme
diately on the errand of enforcing the de
crees of tho adventurers assembled at the
Shawnee Mission, and introducing Slavery
into Kansas.
But will Governor Shannon be able to
perform his promise ? There aro two ob
jections entertained by the people of Kan
sas to the odious rescripts which Governor
Shannon calls laws : in the first place, that
tho conclave by whom they wcrc adopted
had uo authority to act as a legislature;
and in the second place, that they arc of
sotyranical a nature, so repugnant to all
out notions of a free government, that their
execution cannot be endured. Will Gov.
Shannon, for example, be able to exact of
the settlors of Kansas tho oath to support
the Fugitive Slave Law, before thcy are
allowed to vote? Docs he imagine him
self able to execute tho decree issued by
the same usurped authority, which makes
it a crime to speak or publish a word against
the introduction of slavery into Kansas I
By what sort of process docs he expect to
fulfil another decree by which the man who
shelters in his flight a brother man escap
ing from bondage, is to be punished with
death ? The settlers will laugh his law to
scorn, and throw their dfiucc in his teeth-
Will Mr. Pierec, to second his creature
and instrument'in the effort he is about to
make, resort to tho military arm. of the
government ? Will be order out the fed
eral troops as be did to enforce the Fugi
tive Slave Law. at Boston, and as ho would
not do to protect the rights of the residents
of Kansas against the outrages of the in
vaders from Missouri ? If he takes that
step, he plunges the country into a eivil
war at once. Ordinances like those pass
ed by tho usurping legislature at the Shaw
nee Mission, are not laws for a free people
to obey, and all the power at the disposal
of the federal government could no en
force them. Let Mr. Pierce make the ex
periment ; let him try the effect df order
ing out a regiment of the government
troops to aid hi imposing slavery upon Kan
sas against the will of its colonists. It
was not long since that we saw crowds of
eager adventurers on our coasts, our own
countrymen, preparing for a descent upon
Cuba, to deliver the islanders from the
yoke of Spain. Would there be no body
to go up to the struggle for liberty in Kan
sas, where the cry for help should be rais
ed by our countrymen in their extremity,
our old friends and neighbors, who, in fix
ing their residence there, vainly imagined
that tbey were still ui a free country I Our
word for it, the protest against a tyranny
worse than that of Spain would not be un
regarded. Thousands of the young men
of the North, already too impatient of the
dull calmness of a peaceful life, wonld
throng upon the ground in 6uch numbers
as to elbow the comparative handful of
soldiery out of the territory, and even to
hustle the whole army of United States
officers, governors, judges and marshals,
over the frontier. . ', ,
Let no man dony, then, that . the intro
duction of Slavory into-Kansas, as the
consummation of one more object of the
Nebraska bill, is the groat question o the
day. Almost every mail from, the West
informs us of a new. step taken in this aur
daoious enterprise, and adds new interest
toils approaching success or failure.' '

THE TREASURE CHEST OF THE AT-
I ANTIC.
We are permitted to make the following
extracts from a letter from a gentleman in
Canada West to a freutlciwin in ' this tky.
It gives an interesting account of an almost
successful attempt to recover the money lost
ia the steamer Atlantic on Lake Ericabowt
three years ago. ," ' v . .';.-'
: .; Pr. Dover, Ag.2Cth, 1865.- -,
You no doubt have beard of the many
unsuccessful atteavpti tq obtain tbo money
chest lost with ffte steamer Atlantic three
years ago said to contain $00,000. The
statute, I believe, limits the claim ; of ow
nership oyer property "tbus lost' to three
years, in tun case tne lime limited ex
pired on the 20th inst., and Green,' the
celebrated submarine diver, reached here
on the tht, in the canal boat schooner
YorktowD, Capt Patterson, on bis way to
the wreck, 25 miles distant. They return
ed yesterday, and being well acquainted
with Capt. Patterson, I obtained the follow
ing account of him. "About 10 o'clock
(says Capt. P.) ou the 24th, all being rea
dy, Green descended by means of a line,
which having a grapple on the end had bc
come fast to something below. lie was
dressed with, throe pair of flannel drawers,
three shirts, also flannel; three pair of
woolen pants three coats and three ;pair of
woolen stockiags, surmounted by his sub
marine armour; on his feet he had a pair
of stogy shoes, with a lead sole 1-2 or .5-8
of an inch thick, and a belt of 80 lbs of
shot around bis body, to sink bim, (and
Tho breast piece of the armour cannot
weigh less than 50 lbs.)
' Taking hold of the line he descended fin
ding it perfectly light so that he could sec
all around him to the depth of sixty feet,
when it grew dark, and for the- balance of
his fearful journey amid the oavorus of tho
deep, he was guided slocly. by tho line,
until at the depth of abouf 140 feet, when
he struck bottom,, or. something which be
soon made out to bo the wheel-house of
the illrfated. boat; groping along, ho slid
on the hurxioanc deck, from thence to tbe
guards of the boat; by poking nrooad be
discovered, the precise position of the boat,
and found, himself not far from, tbe sought
for office,, and? made fast the end of a line
which ho had carried down with him, to a
8taunchion. near the gangway, and giving
the signal he ascended, carrying with him
a piece of the wheel-house which he had
secured, (a piece of which about 8 inches
long, 4 inches, wide and 1 inches thick,
was siwed off and presented to me by tbe
Captain oftheYorktown.) He had gone
down, ia all, 152 feet, and remaiucd just
40 minutes. After resting he again des
cended, having first partaken of a hearty
meal without removing Lis drosa, nave tho
heavy piece. His excitement was intense
at his great success thus far, and when he
decended the second time he was quite hot,
(the day was intensely hot.)
Deccndhig to his second 'lino ho soon
stood on the deck; feeling his way along,
he soon reached tho "tbird" window,
which beiug unbroken, ho shattered it, and
reaching in his hand laid it upon theuiuch
conveted safe, just in the position which it
had been described to him. Not being a
ble to reach i t far enough to make the line
fast, he again ascended for a hook to h ook
through tho handles! reaching tho deck be
made known his success and requirmeut,
and as no hook was ready, sat down unti
one could be secured to a line. As they
were about ready, be rolled over, saying he

in their power for him, but were finally o-
bliged to buoy tbe lines and make sa il for
this place, for medical attendance. They
reached here at noon yesterday, and two
physicians were immediately called, who
xnressed their otinion that he could . not
ive; however, they labored faithfully with
him, and at night pronounced him better,
and this morning, although not out of dan
ger; it is thought he will live, and is , in a
feir way for speedy recovery." lie says it
his life is spaied be will, yet be the owner
of the chest- He will no doubt be more
nantiniiR in future how he makes a dive
when ho is warm, and on a full stomach.
His first exclamation on his second ascen
sion was, "I touched the gold."

But Little Difference. Mies Mc
Dowell ia tbo last number Of the Woman's
Advocate, utters tho following holdout
significant truth : ' . : '
;! "As women are more affected by the
prevalence of immorality than men, it is
really strange that they do not frown down
those vices of men which are so frequent
ly fatal to their own tranquility. . Many
female who would not refuse to dine witl
a profligato,' would think horsolf foully in
