BY NAPHTHA. One of those delightful California moun tain sunsets was approaching, when two trav. filers, one leading a ladened beast, might , have been seen slowly toiling up the accent . of one of the interior mountains. They had evidently travelled far, judging from the iu- diuations of fatigue, which even the hardy mule displayed. ; ' The resemblance in the frank and hand some, though " dust-be-grimmed eounte uances, announoed the travellers as broth ers. The lateness of the hour warned them that it was time to camp and prepare their evening meaL The sun was sinking grad ually in the western horizon ; the rays , slowly retreated from the bases to the sum mits of the surrounding hills, there playing around them for a moment, like devoted friends, loth to leave to night and darkness. A gentle, balmy breeze strayed through the toughs of the forest trees, causing the leaves ' still wet with the moisture of a recent rain, to sparkle and flash in the light of the de parted orb like lustrous diamonds. Our friends advanced till they reached an open spot upon the summit of a hill, fc hero, halting, they set about preparing, with a dexterity acquired by kpig practice, their evening repast. "Frank," says one, "you take the camp kettle and find some water, while I make a fire and get the grub ready for cooking." Thus 'directed, Frank departed, while the other busied himself with the prelimi nary arrangements of a hearty supper. These accomplished to his satisfaction, he seated himself by the fire to await the re um of his brother. Ait hour dragged slowly by, and he began to grow impatient, when a rapid step announoed the return of Frank, and presently he appeared, minus camp-kettle and hat, his hair hanging over his eyes, which glistened in the fire-light with strong excitement. What's up, boy H exclaimed the oth er, laughing at the unusual appearance of Frank ; "have you seen a grizzly, or the ghost of the jackass we killed for grub, up north P "Neither, Harry," replied Frank ; "but 1 have found what to us is much more wel come. Tve got a slug' with a good chance : of finding some more. You may laugh, but I think it a God-send, and promises a ehange of diet from the donkey spare-rib and roasted pole-cat we've been obliged to eat within three weeks." "So do I ! so do I!" exclaimed Harry, impatiently, himself a little excited about (he prize. "Let me see it ; the color will look mighty big to me now."- Frank gave it to him, and balancing it Upon the lip of his finger, he cried: "Twill weigh an ounce at least, Frank! By Jove ! if we find a Best of them, our fortunes are mado. "Yes, Harry, and the fortune of our old father, too, who needs our aid. If we get anything from the ground where I found this, our first expenditure must be to buy he farm for him which he wishes to have T "Hold on, Frank, the fox is not trapped yet," replied Harry, with another laugh. But where is your ground I Let us go and prospect it right away " , "Enough said," replied Frank ; getthe pick and pan and come oo," So saying, he picked np a shovel, and ted the way in the direction from whence he had came. He walked at a rapid pace, and in a short time arrived at a ravine, on one side of which was a high hill, and on the other a low flat. The bed rock, upon which Frank had found the gold, rose ab ruptly from the earth four or five feet, and sloped off into the flat. - "This is the place to sink a hole in," aid- Harry, striking his pick into a low place into the flat, "If there is anything here, 'twill Be irr this swag." So saying, he divested himself of his coat, and without further parley, vigorously commenced work. The raDid, blows- ef the stalworth broth ers boob laid bare a port- of the bed rock, and scooping np a pan mil or ine rxtr torn dirt, they went to the ravine to wash ie This operation was performed by - Frank, Henry standing by anxiously watch ing the result. Dip by dip it was parmed ' down, iratif the dirt was all washed from the pan and the prospect exposed: "Did you get a color I" inquired Harry, the darkness preventing him from seeing the rrolA "Barely," answered Frank, though his tone belied nis woras ; sere, worn yonr- Harry took the pan, and looking intent ' ly, he was able to preceive fine gold scat tered about the pan, to the amount of two three dollars. . Bv Geonre ! Frank, we are all right exclaimed the now excited Harry, winching wfith delight I've seen enough to rnaWe - m fcel like a millionaire. Nomore fneas sivd note-cat ! Your wish will soon be realized at this rate, and we can go home with enough to keep the okl folks i ease all their lines The elder brother made no peplv. out it might have Been seen, by die expression of lus noble countenance, that be gave to the loved ones at home the first thought, "The first thing in the Bicrning," con tinued Harry, "will be to find the nearest town, and expend what wer lave got for provisions and the mining implements;" Thus planned, the brothers took their way back to their camp to pass the night ana arc-am ot tne boundless wealth which they SHoneee to be already in the grasp. h the following morning, the first tints 01 aawn bad scarcely illumed the eastern skv, ere the younjr men were stirrinff.- Having dispatched a hasty breakfast, Frank mounted a tree upon the highest point of the bill, and soon announct-d uat be saw a smoke, which- must proceed from a set tlement, and a trail leading towards it. This ascertained, they brought in the mule, and proceeded towards the town. It was not long before a small village appeared in view. Our friends soon arrived there, and proceeded to purchase the required articles. Notwithstanding the early hour, three or four men, in the rough garb of miners, were lounging about the store, and consid erable curiosity was evieced at the presence of the strangers. As Frank deposited tire gold in the scale to be weighed, in jwyment of the goods, the men gathered around to examine it. "This- K a pretty piece; stranger," said one to Harry, picking it up ; "where did it come from f" "From a ravine near those pine trees yonder, said Harry, indicating its locolity. "Is there any ground to spare there V questioned the otker ; "I would Ske the claim this came out of." "There is plenty of ground," replied Harry, with a slight laugh ; "the question is whether 'twill pay." This conversation ended, our friends started for their claim, and or arriving there immediately commenced their work. The day passed away, and the sun was approaching the range of the tree tops, when tire attention of Harry and Frank was called to the bank above them by the exclamation : "Hallo ! strangers, you are on my ground. I claimed this a week ago, and I d like for you to leave it. Looking up, our friends saw the speaker standing above them, together with three or four others, one of whom Harry recog nized as his acquaintance of the town. "We were not aware," said Frank," that any party had a previous right to this place. Of course, you can satisfactorily prove the justice of your tit le." "Certainly lean, and make it good, too," 6aid the first speaker, with a coarse laugh. "Come down here, and m show you. . Frank followed him down the ravine. around a bend some distance below, to a tree the base of which was hidden from the claim above, upon which was nailed a miner's notice, claiming the ground several hundred feet up the ravine. "When was this notice placed here f said Frank, with a sigh of regret, as he thought of the treasure about to be taken from him ; "I did not see it this morning as I came down here for wood." "That is because you did not look," re turned the other ; "but read for yourself and you will find out." Frank stepped to the tree and read : "Dated, May 19th." "I hat was four days ago I "Exactly." ; "How long did the rain last which end ed yesterday f inquired Frank. "Two days ot as nara raining as ever was done,t' growled the man ; "it carried away a dam fur me that took me a week to build. "Which way the wind I pursued Frank. "East,".. was the very laconic reply; "why do you ask V "Because." replied Frank, with a smile of triumph, "that notice is on the east side of the tree, and the sand is not washed from the writing ; how do you explain that V "I don't know or care," replied the fel low, in angry confusion : "but this much I do know 'tis my ground, and I'll have it" "Have you driven any stakes I asked Frank. "Nor-and I don't intend to, until I get ready," he answered.- "Verv well, said Frank, calmlv, "it is useless for me to talk with you if this is your ground, you must fiist establish a le gal claim to it I shall not give it up, un less compelled to do so by legal means." "Well see about that, old boy," said the rough claimant ; you had better travel without any trouble." So saying, he departed, touowea oy nis gang. Our friends, satisfied that this was an attempt to wrong them, quietly went back to their work, conndeni that uiey couia re tain possession of their claim by law. The next morning tuey nau noi Deen long at work, when they were again visit ed by the party of the previous evening, with the renewed demand tnai uiey 6iiouiu leave "You had better shoulderyour traps and be off as quick as God will let you ; I've called a miner's meeting, and they will give me my claim as sure as h 1L" "I shall object to a decision of this dis pute by a miners' meeting," said Harry ; "we are strangers hero, and strangers can not receive justice when opposed to old residents of a place; but if you will go with us before justice, we will each state our titles, and abide by bis decision.". "Ill be d d if I do," was the answer; "the miners are coming to settle it, and they shall do H." "Bill," he continued, to one of his party, "you go and bring the boys down here." The fellow departed, presently returning with about twenty men, between whom and the party already on the ground, ex isted a striking resemblance, in dress and appearance. They immediately organized their meeting, chose a president, and re quested the disputants to state their claims. The opponent of our friends came forward and told his story, the substance of which is already before the reader. At his close, the president called upon Frank for his de fence. Frank stated, in a few words, that the meeting was called without the custo mary notice being given, and with the consent of but one party to abide by it's decisions; and was theref ire, in reality, a mob, instead of a chosen tribunal of justice. He informed them that no stakes had been set. and no prospectimr done in the disput ed ground. He also stated that the notice purported to have been on the tree for five dars throngh a severe rein, which was not possible, or the sand wonia nave ncen washed from tlte writing. With this state ment lie left them, nnd joined Harry in the claim. 'tientlemen,"sjid v president, "you've Heard the evidence, and it remains for you to decide by vote which party is entitled to tliis ground!? ' Theote was immediately pat,- and de cided' in- favor of the last claimant, with but one or two- dissenting' voices Be owners of these probably instructed for the occasion, in order to give to the proceedings some- slight show of jastietv And I mve," exclaimed one, "that we put Mike Henley in possession of bis ground." -' This was also carried, and a committee, headed by Mike Henley himself, entered the claim, and commenced throwing out the tools. The brothers did not resist, for they were greatly outnumbered ; Put the flashing eyes of each showed how keenly they felt the injustice done them. Having removed the mining implements," Mike Henley ap proached Frank with a smile of malignant triumph npon his repulsive face, aad ex claimed ;- "Come, my covey, 'tis time for you to leave litis t move." "I sliall not give np possession quietly," answered Frank, a flush of firmness and anger mantling his face, "Yo won't eh T said the ruffian, con scious of the support of his gang; "if you don't I'll be d -d" as he 6aid this he seized the collar of Frank with one hand, and raised tho other to strike. Time was not allowed him, hov.ever, for Frank, with a vigorous blow, dashed liis clenched baud into the face of his assailant, causing him to mark out "five feet ten" in the soft earth. Enraged fceyonr! control, the ruttian sprang to his feet, his face pale, his teeth set and his eyes gleaming with a fiendish light drew a pistol, and aiming with deadly ite4 fall at the breast of Frank,. With the first motion. Harry had sprung towards the villain, with the intention of seizing the pistol but he was too late to prevent the discharge, though he saved the life of his brother by receiving the ball in his own breast; and, with a moan of anguish, sank down at the feet of frank. Mike Henley gazed for a moment wpon the deed he had committed, then Springing up the bank, was lost to view in the bushes. The crowd, appalled by the horrible termi nation of their unjust proceedings, slunk away one by one, not wishing to be identi. lied with the affair, and Frank was left alone with his murdered brother. "Oh, God I dear Harry, lie has murdered you," he cried, sinking upon his knees, and tearing open the coarse shirt which covered the wound ; why did yo spring before thepistolP ' - . . "To save you, dear 1 rank, calmly re plied the noble Harry, a beam of fond af fection lighting up his pallid face. "1 m going, f rank going, ne paintuuy continu ed, after a pause; "his shot was a sure one I'm bleeding internally." "Oh I do not tell me this, ' cried the stricken brother; "what shall I do without you in this land of strangers f" "(io home where you have frienas, re plied poor Harry. "Listen, Frank, to the words of a dying brother, une stay ot their tottering steps is taken from our aged parents; do not risk the other, but return without the coveted wealth; carry a dying child's love marry Alfce, and be happy. You know I loved her once, Frank, fondly loved her; but I found her heart was given to you; be Kind to her, frank, and a de parted brother will implore the blessings of heaven for your welfare." "You shall not die I wildly cried f rank, clasping him in his arms, as if to protect him from the grip of death. "Xou shall not be torn from me " ' "Ah, brother, that is blasphemy; 'tis the expressed wish of God that I am cut off in iny youth, and we must yield to his behests. I have but a few moments to live; bear a kind remembrance to all the friends at home a home, alas ! I shall never see again. Cut a lock of hair from mv head and carry it to our mother; 'tis - " . ... MB M the last she will ever see ot her poor son. The agony of the bereaved brother pen cannot describe. A sudden change took place in his manner after these words, and with one arm raised above his head, his face turned heavenward, and a solemn ex pression appearing upon his face, he said, in a deep, still voice: "Heaven witness my vow ! You shall not die unrevenged, my brother. I will pursue your murderer to the extreme end of earth, and with the might of a just avenger's arm, send his sonl to tie hell which is waiting to receive it r The dying man, unheeding the wrath of his brother, continued, "name the first son of Alice, for me, Frank; 'twill cause you to remember me when years have paled the memory of Harry." A tremor now run through his whole frame, but he recovered slightly, and in a scarcely audible whisper went on.: "Where a tii. V i tilr xnv cifrlir. mvwra rlim T cannot see your hand, brother here, carry this kiss to mother; the breath is leaving me ! hark ! hear that sweet music I I die happy; I am going to God; farewell, dear Frank, farewell." As he uttered these words he suddenly raised his body, supported by the arms of Frank, to an upright position, then, with a long drawn sigh, the pure spirit left the tenement of clay, to bo borne in the arms of angels to the home of the happy. What pen can portray the anguish of the stricken brother I Mute surely cannot, and I draw the curtain around the scene of soul-moving agony. The murderer Henley fled, and after the lnnso of a week, miffht have been seen en tering a village some distance from the scene of his foul crime; he had scarcely entered the tavern of the place, when a man in the dress of a native Californian, rode in from the same direction, and giving the reins of his animal to tneaiienaing hostler, abo entered the house, where he had entered his name for a room. The Califomian stepped to the book, and wri ting his name, said to the clerk : "I will take a bed in the same room with my friend," pointing to Henley. "Very well, sir,"was the reply; "when you wish to retire I will show you the room." In the morning, when the chamber-maid entered tlw room to pertorm tne necessary labor, she was horrified by the sight which met her gaze. ' The body of Henley lay partly hanging from the bed, the clothes besprinkled with Mood, nnd a birrm bowie-knife bt ried to the hilt in his breast To the handle was at Inched a slip of paper, bearing the follow ing words ; . "Life for life is the established sorinl law of the. country. Whether the murderer falls by the hand of self appointed judges, or by the nerved arm of an outraged brother, is of little importance.

'. . . .... . ... . :. MAY HE REST IN PEACE. The Dog Noble, and the Empty Hole. BY REV. HENRY WARD BEACHER. The first summer which we spent in Lenox, we had along a very intelligent dog named Xnoble. He was learned in many things, and by his dog-lore excited the undying admiration of all the chil dren. But there were some things which Noble could never leam. Having on one occasion seen a red squirrel run into a hole in a stone wall he could not be pursuaded that he was not there forevermore. Several red squirrels lived close to the house and had become familiar, but not tame. They kept up a regular romp with Xoble. They would come down from the maple trees with provoking coolness; they would run along the fence almost within reach, they would cock their tails and sail across the road to the barn; and yet there was such a well-timed calculation under all this apparent rashness, that Noble invaria bly arrived at the critical spot just as the squirrel left it On one occasion Nolle was so close up on his red backed friend that, unable to get up the- maple tree, be dodged into a hole in the wall, ran through the chinks, emerged at a little distance, and sprung into the tree. The intense enthusiasm of the dog at that hole can hardly be describ ed. He filled it full of barking. He pawed and scratched as if undermining a bastion. Standing off a little distance he would pierce the hole wki s gazo as in tense and fixed as if he were trying mag netism on it Then with tail extended, and every hair thereon electrified, he would rush at the empty hole with a prouigous onslaught This imaginary squirrel hauted jobie night and day. Tho very squirrel himself would run up before his face into the tree, and crouched in a crotch, would sit silent ly watching the wholo process of bom- wi ruing me empiy uoie, who great soune- ty and relish. But Noble would allow of no doubts. His conviction that that hole had a squirrel in continued unshaken for six weeks. When all other occupations foiled this hole remained to hrm. - When there were no more chickens to worry, no pigs to bite, no cattle to chase, no children to romp with, no expeditions to make with the grown folks, and when he had slept all that his dog-skin would hold, he would walk out in the yard, yawn and stretch himself, and then looking wistfully at the hole, as if thinking to himself. "Well if there is nothing else to do I may as well try that hole again." We had almost lorgouen this little trait until the conduct of the New York Ex- press, in respect to CoL Fremont's religion brought it ludicrously to mma again. Col, h rcmont is, and always has been, as sound a Protestant as John Knox ever is. He was bred in the Protestent faith and has neverchanged. He is unacquaint ed with the doctrines and ceremonies of the Catholic Church, and has never attended that Church with two or three exceptions, when curiosity, or some intrinsic reason, led him as a witness. We do not state this upon vague belief. .We know what we say. We say it upon our own personal honor and proper knowledge. CoL Fre mont never was, and is not now, a Roman Catholic He has never been wont to at tend that Church. Nor has he in any way, directly or indirectly, given occasion for this report, It is a gratuitous falsehood, utter, bar ren, absolute and unqualified. The story has been got up for political effect It is still circulated for tliat reason, and like oth er political lies, it is a sheer, unscrupulous falsehood, from top to bottom, from the core to the skin, and from the skin back to the core again. In all its parts, in pulb, tegnment rind, cell and seed, it is a thor ough and total untruth, and tliey who spread it bear false witness. And as to all the stories of the Fulmer, eta, as to sup posed conversation with Fremont in which he attended the mass, and what not they are pure fictions. They never happened. The authors of them are slandeiers, the men to believe them are dnpes, the men who spread t hem become endorsers of wil ful aud corrupt libellers. -' But the Express, like Nohlt has opened on this hole in tho wall, and never can be done barking at it. Day af ter day it resorts to this empty hole. When everything else fails this resource remains. There they are, indefatigably the Ex prcts and Noble a chnrch without a Fre mont, aud a hole without, a sqnirrcl in ft! In some respects, however, the dog had the advantage. Sometimes i thought that he really believed that ''jcto was a squirrel there. - But at other times he ap parently had an inkling of the ridiculous ness of his conduct, for he would drop his tail, and walk towards us with his tongue out and his eyes a little aslant seeming to sav, "My dear sir, you don't understand a dog's feeling's. I should of course much prefer a squirrel, but if I can't have that an empty hole is better than nothing. I imagine how I would catch him if be toot there. Besides, people who pass by don't know the facts. They think that I have got someting. It is needful to keep up reputation for sagacity. Besides, to tell the truth I have looked into that hole so long that I have half persuaded my self that there is a squirrel there, or will be, if I keep on." Well every dog must have his day, and every dog must have his way. No doubt if we were to bring back Noble now, after two summer's absence, he would make straight for that hole in the wall with as much zeal as ever. ' We never read the Express now-a-daya, without thinking involuntarily, "Goodness! the dog is letting off at that hole again." jf-fTThe Philadelphia Ledger says: "Tho Republicans seem to betaking the lead in this city." And the man niit have added, in the State, and throughout he Free Slates nnd what is more, they will Jtrry the lend. Fremont and Buchanan Literature -Who are the Readers! Having noticed froni time to time, a lonely looking book on the shelves of the Bookseller in this eity, called a Life of James ne6eunm, we were eanous enovrgn to enquire how many copies of it had been sold. At the same time we enquired how many copies of the Life of Fremont had been disposed of.- We fomnd the follow ing as the result of our curiosity r Messrs, JvB- Cobb & Con aud C. S. Bragg and Con have sold ' , Life of Buchanan . ' .60 copies Fremont " ' 1109 " (cheap eddition) 500 . " ' 1600 " Messrs. Jewett, Proctor fe Worthington have sold 49 copies of the Campaign Life of James Buchanan, all tokL They have also sold Upham's Fremont -1264 Smau ker's do . .50 '. Bigelow's do- 60 ' 1364 Messrs. J P. & W. have aTso sold of Fremont and Dayton, and other cheap lives of Fremont 10,200 copies. . Messrs. Hawks fe Brother have sold Upham's Fremont 40 " " (cheap edition) 400 ' Dollar edition of Life of Buch'n 12 Cheap editions 75 The amount of sales stood, therefore, this morning, all told, as follows: Lives of Buchanan sold 196 copies Lives of Fremont sold 13,632 copies The above sales of Cobb & Co., and C. S. Bragg fc Co., do not include sales of Greeley s cheap edit ion; of the Life of Fre mont which is sold by the thousand. All the above proves clearly that Fre mont will run because the people will read. It may be well here to remark that while cords of the Life' of the People's Candidate, and the few copies ef the Life of Buchanan have been sold, not one co py of Fillmore's Life is even enquired af ter. It is not even written; but we are informed that it is to appear with the His tory of the- Next War. We have not yet heard when the Ilfo of the candidate for Vice President on Fillmore's ticket is to be written. Mr. Scroggs, tho orator of the rUlanore meeting ta tlte steps of the WedVWl, may possibly know ; but when asked about it he says " Oi, , we new er mention Am." Cleveland Herald. Very true neighbor Herald, but here is the answer of our uidepemIeF neighbor of the "Clevelander." " We admit Mr. Filuiork's Life has not been written, but it has been read notwitlustanding, and committed to memory, and is deeply engraven on the heart of every living American, and we eaa prove it too by one man at least if he ts in town. The man eminent for his personal appearance, as well as for his Fugitive Slave Late, and the Albaky Speech ("Ike Sentik wont submit to if ) needs no life written his life is not ended yet, as Buchanan's is, and as Fremont's will be if he lives long enough. As for General Gutavts Adolphvs) ScRoees, it k true he did not mention Donelson's name in his speech -at the Mass M beting on the step of the Weppell Hotse, but he thought of him several times, and he would have mention ed his name if he had not got confused about that bole. The General explained this to us several times, and as an "Inde pendent," and the other man as the De pendent wing of the Filmore army, satis- hed." Tho above we presume will not bo at least the of our neighbor's reply. Who are the Disunionists? The following extracts are selected from authentic records of opinions expressed by men, all of whom are now prominent sup porters of Buchanan and Fillmore. BY SENATOR YULEE, OF FLORIDA. "For my part, I am ready to proceed to extreme measnres, even to the dissolution of tho Union." BY SENATOR BROWN, OF MISSISSIPPI.

The editor of the Wisconsin Patriot displayed the following card a few days since : $5,000 REWARD! Will be given to anybody who can a vote ever given by Fremont while in the Senate, on the side of Freedom. On the other hand, we will forfeit that amount if we can't show by the record, thnt eve ry vote that he ever gave on the subject of slavery, was given for the South side by side with the notorious Know Nothing Dave Atchison, and the southern fire eaters.

It closes witn tne following summary of his Congressional and official labors to strengthen and uphold slavery,' which proves Old Buck to be a complete embodiment of Border Ruffian Democracy. In private as well as in public, Mr. Bu chanan has always stood ea the side of the South. ; The citizen aud statesman are one and the same individual. . lie sup- ported too rights ot the South . wnen in office; he vindicated and maintained tliose rights when out of office. He not only voted for all measures of justice to the South, but he endeavored to carry them in to effect. His is not a dead record of votes, but a living record of acts, which vindicate the honesty of the votes. Thus, Mr. Buclianan exhorted the North to a faithful and cheerful fulfilment of the ob ligations of the Fagitive Slave Law. He protested against the prohibition of jails in Pennsylvania to federal officers for the confinement of captured slaves. He de nounced the Wilmot Proviso. He ap proved the Clayton Compromise of 1817. And, to sum up in a single sentence, he Lis at all times and in all places exerted the authority of high character ami great talents to uphold the Union, defend the Constitution, and protect the South. To recapitulate: . 1. 1836, Mt, Buchanan supported a bill to prohibit the circulation of abolition papers through the mails. 2. Ia the same year he proposed and voted for the admission- ef Arkansas. 3. In 1836 '7 he denounced and voted to reject petitions for the abolition of slav very in the District of Columbia. 4. In 1837 he roted for Mr. Calhoun's famous resolutions, defining the rights of the States and the limits of the federal authority, and affirming it to be the duty of the government to protect and uphold the institutions of the South. 5. In 1838-'9 and '40, he ivariably voted with Southern Senators against the consideration of Anti-Slavery petitions. 6. In 1844 '5, he advocated and voted for the annexation of Texas. 7. Iu 1847, he sustained the Clayton Compromise. 8-. In 1850, he proposed and urged the extention of the Missouri Compromise to the Pacific ocean. 9. But ho promptly acquiesced in the compromise of '50, and employed all his influence in favor of the faithful execution of the fugitive slave law. . 10. In 1854 he remonstrated against an enactment of the Pennsylvania Legisla ture for obstructing the arrest and return of fugitive slaves. . 11. It 1854 he negotiated for the ac- quistion of Cuba. 12. In 18oo he approves the repeal ot tho Missouri restriction, and supports the principles of the Kansas-Nebraska fet. ia. ne never gave a voie againsi me interests of slavery, and never uttered a word which eonld pain the most sensitive south ern heart The Washington Union copies these thirteen items of Mr. Buchanan's pro-slavery record, and piles it up still higher, thus: "This rapid retrospect discloses a con sistency and an efficiency of service to the South, which flattery can claim for no oth er living man. Mr. Buchanan is not only vuviiraied from ralumnr : he is not simol v shown to be exempt from just reproach and worthy confidence, he is promoted to his proper position, in advance of any aud every statesman vf the jyorth m the eon- fidence and affections of the people of the South. Most Singular Affair in Bordentown Most Singular Affair in Bordentown--Shocking Delusion--Unnatural Ceremonies. We have just learned from a most relia ble source, the following particulars of a most singular phase of "spiritualism," and of the performance of the marriage ceremony under horribly unnatural circumstances. An individual resKimg in Boruentown, who has been for some time a believer in spiritualism and its accompanying delu sions, had a son who returned from Albany in a dying; condition with consumption, last week, -and on Friday or Saturday he died. The deceased had previously been engaged to a young lady agi-d about 17, now residing in the house of her intended father-in-law, and she too is a firm believer in the spiritual notions, as well as her lov er and his father. On Friday morning last with tlie con sent of the young man's father,Jthis yoimg lady was married to the corpse by the "Spir itual ceremony," which was pcrfonived through a bov who acted as medium! The yonng lady was attired in all the usur.1 paraphernalia at the ceremony, and after it was over the funeral of the deceased took Jplace. It was attended, we learu, by upwards of two thousand persons from Bordentown aud vicinity, who had been attracted to the spot by a morbid curiosi ty. Tlie young lady acted at the grave like one reaily ossessed with an evil spirit; she raved and flung herself into the grave, and was with great difficulty borne from the spot to the residence of the madman whom she regarded as her father-in-law. Since tlie funeral she lives at his house, and at meals a plate, cup, and a portion of all the condiments of the table are set apart for the dead man, whose empty chair these victims of demonism suppose to b tenanted by his spiritual body. The unfortunate young lady is the daughter of respectable parents, who for merly resided in Burlington; but who have removed to California, whither she intends following them. We talk of the "light of the nineteenth century," but we ask in all solemnity, could the annals of middle-African Fetlish wor shipcould the darkest pollutions of Oriental Devil-worship could the gloom iest delusions of fhe middle ages, or the blackest Paganism of any age or country show a more horrible picture of human madness and hallucination f We think not!
