From the Cincinnati Commercial. Good Democratic Speeches. .'A few passages from tbe speeches of Souther men, daring the secession scenes in the Charleston Convention, will interest oar readers, and are Letter presentations of the feeling that prevailed, than the formal documents signed bj the delegations. Gor. Moaton, of Louisiana, said : Heretofore, we hare been in the habit of sajing that the Democracy of the coun try was harmonious. (Laughter.) Can we say so to day with any truth I Are we not divided, and divided in such a man ner that we can sever be reconciled, be cause we are divided opon principle f Can we agree upon the platform adopted by the majority of the Convention, and then go home to onr constituents and put one construction on it, while Northern Demo crats put another! No, Mr. President, I think I speak the sentiment of my. State when I say she will never play such a part. (Cheers.) If we are to fight the Black Republicans together, let ns do it with a bold front; let use the samo arms; let us sustain the same principles. The platform which the ma jority of the Convention has adopted does not give us those guaranties which we are entitled to for the protection of our pro perty in the Territories. We wish to wear no two laces in this contest We wish to meet the Black Republicans with their abominable doctrines boldly; and if our friends, the Democrats from the free States cannot join ns and fight with us, we must fight our own battle. We are ready to meet the issue made by the Black Repub licans like men. but we shall battle for what we conceive to be the truth, and not profit. It was delivered with the greatest possi ble solemnity, and heard with breathless interest by the vast crowd, which filled ev ery inch of space in the hall, nine men out of ten present thinking the destinies of the country were then and there poisoned. Mr. T. C. Glenn, of Mississ:ppi. ."Mr. President and gentlemen of this Conven tion : - For the first time, for the only time, for the last time, in the name of the State that I have the honor to represent here, I desire to say bat a few words to this Con vention. I bold in my band toe solemn act of her delegation upon this floor, and I say to you gentlemen, that it is not a has ty action; that it is not one conceived in passion, or carried oul in caprice or disap pointment. It is the firm resolve of the great body of the people whom we repre sent, which was expressed in the Conven tion that sent ns here, and tnat resolve, that people, and we, their representatives, will maintain at all costs, at an nazaras. (Loud cheers. J "We came Here not to dictate to me re presentatives of other sovereign states. Since we have been here our intercourse has been courteous, so far as personalities are concerned. " We have all sought, and I believe have all been able to conduct our selves as gentlemen. But we did not come here to exercise the courtesies ot lite alone. We came here to settle the principles upon which the party must rest and must stand. We came here gentlemen of the North, not to ask you to adopt a principle which you could aay was opposed to your con sciences and to your principles.. We did not belie ve it to be so. We came as equal members of a common confederacy. (Cheers.) Sir, at Cincinnati we adopted a platform on which we all agreed. Now, answer me, ye men of the North, of the East, of the South, and of the West, what of the construction placed upon tnat plat form in different sections of the Union I You at the West said it meant one thing; we at the South said it meant another. Either we were right or you were right; we were wrong or you were wrong, w e came here to ask yon which was right and which was wrong, ion nave maintained your position. You say that you cannot give us an acknowledgement of that right, wnicn x ten you now, in coming nine win be vour own safety in your contests with the Black Republicans of Ohio and the North.. I Cheers.) - v - - "Why, sir, turn back to the .history of your own leading men. mere sits dis tinguished gentleman, (Stuart, of Michi gan,) once a representative of one the sov "... an, ... ereign states ot tne union m me oeusie of the United States who then to tod that Congress had the constitutional power to pass the Wilmot Proviso, and to exclude slavery from the Territories ; and now when tne Supreme uoun nas saia tnat it nas not thatvower, he comes forward and tells Mississippians that that same Congress is impotent to protect that same species of property. inere sits my aisungumueu friend, the Senator from Ohio, (Mr.f ogn.1 who, but a few nights since, told us from that stand, that, if a territorial government totally misused their powers or abused them, Congress would wipe out that terri torial government altogether. And yet when we come here and ask him to give us protection in case that territorial govern ment robs ns of onr property and strikes the star 'which answers to the name of Mississippi from the flag of the Union, so far as the Constitution rives ner protec tion, he tells us, with his hand upon h:s heart as Governor Payne of Ohio, had before done they will part with their lives before they - acknowledge the principle which we contend for. "Gentlemen, in such a situation of things in the Convention of our great party it is riahitKat vt thovld part. Go your way inf as mil tia BttrS. J. no oouiu wares " ... m. n . i i won not like Hager. driven into the wil derness, friendless and alone but I tell Southern men here, and lor mem i ten me North, that, in less than sixt days you will find a nmted South standing siae oy side with us. (Prolonged and enthusiastic cheering.) "We stand firm and unmbvable, and while we respect ourselves, And, gentle men, let me say to you of the North now, that the time may come when you may need us more than we need you. I speak to those who represent "the green hills of W , . . . . i new .ngiandf I speak oi tne "imperial centre" of the Union. There slumbers in your midst a latent spark not of political sectionalism, but of social discord which mar yet require the conservative princi ples of the South to save your region of country from anarchy and confusion. We need not your protection. The power of Black Republicans is nothing to us. We are safe in our own strength and security, so lone as we maintain our rights." ine way we case atanas mis morning x should not be surprised if the Convention would drag its weary length along through this and even icto next week. It is losing its importance however, and becoming merely a curiosity. The North Western men say they will pick out those who are willing to stay here during the summer, and vote for Douglas every time, and see that if he is nominated no other man shall be. They have given up all hope of the spoils, and therefore may do any obstinate and which enter theii M. H. An Æronaut throws away His Life. The telegraph of a Mr. Conner, a young seronaut, who attempted an ascension in New York, on the 10th, during a gale of wind. The TYibvne't report says: The ascension was from the Palace Gar den,in the upper part of the city. The bal loon, during inflation, was so swayed by the wind as to come in contact with a large lamp, which was dashed in pieces. Mrs. Conner wished to go up with her husband, but he said to her. "Mr dear, you must wait until the next time." The spectators urged him not to attempt the ascension, and so did Mr. Conner's friends, but he would not listen to them. All was ready, the balloon rocked in a frightful manner; Mr. C. bade an affectionate adieu to his wife and intimate friends, entered the car, rave the sienal: the balloon, instead of rising perpendicularly from the ground, lunged off in a westerly direction. The monster body, driven by the squall that just then arose, demolished a large Iras parency with which it came in contact, and striking the metal cornice of the ball and concert building, bent it like so much thin lead. The wind subsiding, the bal loon rose above the high ornaments on the buildms referred to, and then suddenly collapsed, and with its basket and occupant instantly aisappearea irorc siguv. n. wxm of the wildest confusion now ensued, Mrs. Conner, and a female relative who accom panied her, fainting and falling helpless upon the ground. - Loud shrieks rent the air. both inside and outside the Garden, and the frantic people rushed hither and thither without knowing why or wherefore. The collapsed oailoon and Mr. uonner were found on the roof of the building, insensible, and he died in the arms of his wife at 11 o'clock the same evening. His death was caused by striking against the ornaments of the building. Before get ting into the car, a hole in the balloon was pointed out to him, which he tied up with a string, and remarked cooly that "It might cause a burst and spill him out." Conner was a pupil of Wise, and the lat lerjnade the balloon which was to have had canacitv for carrvinar up two persons, but could carry but one. A law suit between Conner and W iss was tne consequence, and Conner went direct from the trial of the case to the Garden remarking to Wise, as he left the court room, "I am going up to-day. and I suppose you'll be clad if I never come back," verifying the adage that "many a true word is Bpoken in jest. Life. Horrible Murder--A Woman Kills Her Husband. The Fort Wayne find.) furnishes the details of one of the most horrid crimes we have been called on to mention : "The murdered man and the murderess were husband and wife, and had main tained that relation to each other for a pe riod of upward of fifi7 years. J. bey resi ded on a small farm, which they owned in DeEalb county. Mrs. Knapp informed her son 'Jakey' of her intention to kill the old man, and requested 'Jakey' to hold the old man s bands while sbe would cnoke mm to death: 'Jakey' refused. So she said no more about tbe matter until next morning, when she pursuaded Knapp, under some pretence, to enter the milk house, and as he was in the act of stepping 'out- of the building, she struck him on the back of the head with a heavy club, ohe tben seized the axe which she had ready, and struck him on the forehead, fracturing the skull.

There is said to be an old farmer living in Red River county, Texas, W6ll to-do in the world, and hospitable, but who has a most inconceivable prejudice against Tennessee and Tennesseeans, insomuch tbat be will not even entertain a man from that State. His mode of ascertaining a Tennesseean ia something like pro-slavery men in Kansas determininz a Yankee by the pronuncia tion of the word "cow," the Yankee calling it "keow." His word is calico, wbich be says the Tennesseeans uniformly pronounce "kaliker." A stranger rides np and prob ably asks tbe privilege ot spending tbe nicht at his house. The old planter, be fore answering definitely, pulls Out a sin gular piece of calico from bis vest pocket, and showing it to the stranger, asks what be thinks of iU "Why, that's kaliker, ain't it r be naturally asks.

About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the building occupied as a dwelling' and blacksm'th shop bv a man named Hobbe, and standing in the lane off Main street, near tne market, Orange, was discover ed to be on fire. The alarm waa eiven, and the people hastened to the place, but iouna u rmpossioie to save tne premises. They breed an entrance, went np stairs, aad succeeded in extricating Mrs. Hobbs, . M .... - ?- . . . . ber nve children, and a little girl, tbe daughter of a neighbor, from the burning house. They were all badly bumed, but it ia thought mat Mrs. Hobbs end two of the children will recover. The remaining three, and also the other little girl, died of their injuries. . . Abe suspicious of everybody were direct ed to Hobbs, tbe husband and father, as the author of this tragedy. A short time before the discovery of the fire, he was seen by several persons to hasten from his dwelling, and make bis way out ot tne village toward Bloomfield. Aa be waa of ten in difficulty with his wife, and of known intemperate habits, this occurence was not calculated to create attention. The neighbors had repeatedly been called to his house to separate him from his wife, whose life he frequently threatened. - For ten days past be bad been several times at tacked by delirum tremens. He waa fol lowed to Bloomfield, discovered and, arres ted. , Mrs. Hobbs is described by her neigh bors as quiet and peaceable, though igno rant vomu; and ber situation, coupled with a drunken man menacing ber life, and brutally beating her upon alight prov ocation, bad excited general commiseration jr. i". Post. . A Contented Farmer. Once upon a time Frederick, King of Prussia, surnamed "Old D rilz," took a ride and espied an old farmer, plowing his acre by the way side cheerily singing his mel ody, "You must be well on, old man," said the king. "Does this ace belong to you, on which you so industriously labor! "No. sir, replied the farmer who did not know be was the king; "I am not so rich as that, I plow for wages. f'How much do you get a day I asked the king. "Eight groschen, (about twenty fire cents,) said the farmer. "This is not much, replied the king; "can you get along with this ! - "Get along and have something leu. "HowisthatP The farmer smiled and said. . "Well, if I must tell you; Two gros chen are for myself and wife; two to pay my old debts; two I lend away; and two 1 give away for the Lord s sake." "Ihie is a mystery tbat 1 cannot solve,' replied tbe king. "Then 1 will solve it for you, said the farmer. t "I have two old parents at home who kept me when I . was weak and needed help, I keep them. Ill is is my debt to ward which I pay two two groschen a day, The third pair of groschen which I lend way I spend for my - children, that they may receive Christian . instruction. This will become handy to me and my wife whan we get old. With the last two gros chen I maintain two sick sisters, whom, I would not be compelled to keep; this I give for the Lord s sake. Tbe king well pleased with bis answer, said: Bravely spoken, old man. Now J will also give you something to guess. Have you ever seen me before. "Never," said the farmer. "In less than five minutes you shall see me fifty times and carry w your pocket fif ty of my likenesses." - "ibis is -a riddle 1 cannot unravel. ssid the farmer. "Then I will do it for you," replied the king, Thrusting his hand into his pocket, and counting bim fifty bran-new gold peices into his hand stamped with his royal like ness, he said to the astonished farmer, who knew not what was coming: . "The coin is genuine, for it also comes from our Lord God, and I am his paymas ter. I bid you adieu." German Reform ed Metunger, One Hundred Years Ago. One hundred years .ago there was not a white man in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, or Illinois Territories. ' Then, what is now the most flourishing part of America was as little known as the country around the mountains of the Moon. It waa not until 1709 that the hunter of Kentucky, the gallant and adventurous Boon,.' left his home in North Carolina to become the first settler in Kentucky. Tbe first pio neer of Ohio did not settle till twenty years after this time. A hundred years ago Canada belonged to x ranee and the whole population of the United States did not exceed a million and a half of people. - A hundred years ago the great Frederick of Prussia, -was per forming those great exploits which have made him immortal in military annals, and with his little monarchy, was sustaining a single handed contest with Russia, Austria and France, the three great powers of Eu rope combined. A hundred years ago the United States were the most loyal part of the British Empire, and on tbe political horizon no speck indicated the struggle which within a score of years thereafter es tablished the greatest republic of the world. A hundred years ago there ' were but four newspapers in America; steam engines had not been imagined, and rail roads and telegraphs had not entered the remotest conceptions of man. When we cease to look back at it through the vista' of history, we find tbat to the century which has passed has been allotted more important events, in their bearing npon the happiness of the world, than any other which has elapsed since the creation. A hundred years hence, what will be the de velopments! Another Real Life Romance. The citizens of Columbus and visitors at the Capitol will recollect a beautiful young girl, apparently "sweet sixteen," who daily carried about the Legislative Halls and State offices, a handsomely wrought basket containingthe plumpest and sweetest orang3s. Ob, yes! everybody remembers Ettie, the beautiful orange girl; and have wondered in what nook sbe has hidden for the past wo months, for no morn her sweet face and girlish form is seen in the Capi and interest ing clerks with a great admira tion for tbe rotunda, are obliged to forego glimpses of the neatest gaitered foot trip ping op the marble stairs. ; . " Everybody about the stale House ad mired Etlie, but it was with a respectful admiration, and if a gruff legislator was tempted to jest with tne girl or make light remarks, he was restrained by the modest demeanor and pure soul look appealing from her heaven-blue eyes. - Kttie always brought a full basket, and went tripping home with aa empty one, and her scarlet silk purse filled with silver coin. She was tbe sole dependence of a widowed, palsied mother, and her noble ef forts to keep away want were known, and made the fruit from her basket ten timea sweeter. When the great Union Meeting of the ieunessee, Kentucky and (Jbio Legisla tures was held in -Ohio s Capitol, the beau tiful orange girl was tripping about, dis posing of ber fruit to the "sons of the South," and receiving tbe homage of ad miring glances from all. At tbe end of one of the balls, viewing the noble row of princely residences on Third street, stood a youthful member of tbe Tennessee .Legislature, when he was startled by a silvery voice asking: -rsuy an orange, sir r "How do you sell them?" said the stran ger, looking into her eyes. "i ive cents each, said the maiden, hold ing a large one towards him. "Cheap." "Indeed they are." ' This introduction opened tbe way for a prolonged and serious conversation, in which tbe girl artlessly revealed to the stranger the poverty of her home, and the necessity of her supporting ber sick moth er. He was so struck with the girl's man ner and singular beauty, that be secretly resolved to visit her ' home and become more intimately acquainted. - He did so, and after successive visits, ' won the confi dence and love of tbe maiden, and her mother's consent to their marriage, and when he went back to his Southern home it Was with a promise to return in a fort night for his bride. He came, and now the manly Southerner and the beautiful orange girl are man and wife.- He had taken ber, the fairest of tbe fair to bis Southern home, to dwell with him and her aged mother, in opulence, the idol of ber husband, and bletsmg of tbe whole neigh' borhood. ' ' What an inducement for a constant sup ply of beautiful, virtuous orange girls I Gin. liazette. ... -. v Dark Life at the Capital. "Uccasional. the Washington corre spondent of the Philadelphia Press, gives the following: "One of those cases which - awaken the sympathies of all men came to my knowl edge tbe other day, and it is of so interest ing a character tbat 1 cannot refrain from giving it to tbe world. A n estimable col ored man, well known in Washington, cal led npon me on Monday, with tears in bis eyes and said : U bave bad news to tell you, My wife, with whom I have lived happily for twenty years, was sold by her master on the 19th of March, and is now in the slave pen at Alexandria, and will be sent by the slave-trader to the extreme South unless I can raise $800 by Saturday to buy ber back to my bosom, and to give to our poor children their faithful and devoted mother. We have had eleven children, of whom seven are now alive. Ob inquiry, I found that the woman was an honest and trustworthy servant; and I know her hus band to be one of the best fellows of his race. A subscription waa immediately started, and I hope we shall be enabled to rescue her from her impending doom am not disposed to enter into an argument against slavery, but is it not a galling reflec tion, tbat here, ia tbe District of Uolum bis, that this infernal traffic in human flesh is carried on, and that a slave pen within sight of the Washington Monu mentf It doea my heart good to see the feeling which is excited among booth' era men. They look upon the slave-tra- der'with even more abhorrence than we of the North, and I have no doubt that in tbe list of names attached to the paper for tbe relief of poor Sam's wife, will be found many ganerous slave-holders.".

Wrath of the Douglas Men--- Their Treatment in Charleston. The Douglas men ef Cincinnati held a meeting on Thursday evening, at which a good many wrathy speeches were made. We quote from thn report of the Cincin nati Gazette'. . . Mr. Faran on coming forward spoke for about five minutes, confining his re marks chiefly to the coarse of the youglas a. . ww - f i t men at Charleston, ana to non. uaieo Gushing., He had witnessed the straggle, and thought tbe friends of Douglas should be commended for their manly adherence to him, when tbe outside pressure at Cliarleston was so dead-set against him. So bitter was the feeling, that no northern man waa permitted by their populace to speak outside the Hall, unless aided by the courteous appeals of Southern men in their behalf. - Just think of mJyatwnal Democrat Dot being allowed to speak u the streets of Charles ten I - How aaame- fully be is treated after all his subserviency to the slave power ! . Mr. raran came down in expressive lan i- ... . guage on tbe underhanded traitorous course of the New York Delegates in forcing up on tbe Northwest the resolution requiring the 202 votes to nominate after tbe seces sion; and more emphatically npon Caleb Cusbing for sustains such a course tie said Cuthbig had no more political honor than, the lowest convict tn the penxtenuary. That was well said, Mr. Faran, and ought to convince VJaleo ot tne propriety ot re sicnin7 the Chair at Baltimore.! o o . Mr. Wood said, in what we consider a very irreverential spirit for a Democrat, tnat when m that venerable old city, for the first time in his life he felt that he was not t the United Stales. There were old- fashioned houses, and be found a spirit generally pervading Charleston that it and the rest of Carolina were everything, and the rest .of the Union was nothing. There was also a general opposition to the Popular Sovereignty Platform and its ad vocates candidate for President. As soon as the Convention opened, one side of the gallery was filled with men opposed to the Little Uiant, and tbe other gallery was filled with ladies opposed to him. A mo tion waa soon after made to admit ladies upon the floor, and they were accordingly admitted, and all opposed to Douglas and his adhere rents. This was the way out side influence was brought to bear, v When a distinguished member of Con- (Mr. Logan) from lllnoia, who was a native of a slave State, arose on the steps of the Mills House to address the people, be was forced by the mob to desist, and only because be was from Illinois. This waa a specimen of the fairness with wbich North ern men were treated in that city of the South. : Mr. Wood said that it was useless to attempt to conceal the fact that there was a feeling in the South antagonistic to tbe Democratic party and to the Union it self. He found tbe Southern representa tives in the Convention ' fire-eaters. In view of these facts, he felt proud to think that the Ntrthwest voted as one man; no, not as one man, for there wore two men, delegates from Minnesota who had bees booghtfwho voted against Douglas. -A Voice "Give ua their names." - Mr. Wood' "I prefer not to give names. We have got their daguerreotypes, and the next time you go to new Xork you . will find them in the Rogue's Gallery." Cheers. . , . Mr Wood next spoke of tbe necessity for the Douglas men to be firm in order to sustain the principles for they fought- They represent the majority ef the people, for Mr. Douglas was their choice for Pres ident. So, after balloting the fifty-seven times, instead of appealing again to the South, they adjourned tbe Convention to meet again at Baltimore. They expected to succeed belter at the latter 'place, be cause a majority of the Convention were pledged to Douglas, and because the peo ple of the South would be represented there by a different set of delegates. Mr. rW. was very severe in bis denunciations of Caleb Cushing, who, he ki like himself, he was ashamed to say, formerly had been a Whig. He (Cusbing) was as wily as the devil of old, and like bim could give me most plnusible reasons for wicked and dis honest act.
