Our readers will recollect, that a few moths since, a Mrs. Bottsford was impris oned and subjected to the most cruel in dignities in the city of Charleston, for no otuer crime man nonestiy avowm? ner opinions, when asted for tbem by "those warm hearted children of ihe south." Mrs. Bottsford has published fin account of tbe wbole attair in the JNew York - Tribune, from which we make the fol low extracts, which will be read with ad ditional interest by our citizens, from the fact that Mrs. B is the sister-iu-law of our neighbor Thadeus H. Botsford, Esq., of Midulebury. ' She had just recovered from a severe ill ness, when one day, in Sept. last, a mem ber of the vigilance police forced himself into her appariraent in a rumacly manner, and ordered her to accompany him before the mayor: Mrs. Bn continues her curative thus: "I said I would not go and asked him nhat right he had to insult and molest me; whether he had an? written authority to demand my presence. Ha said no. Then followed this conversation I beginning it by asking: "What does the Mayor want of me!" "I understand that you aro an abolition ist." "Yes ; and what of that t ''You must come with me or I will tako you by force," said he angrily." "I considered for a moment, and decided on tho wholo it was best to go with him quietly. I thought it probable the May or had been imposed upon by some idle reports, and that after hearing what I had to say, ho would dismiss mo with an apol ogy for being the occasion of this unwont ed intrusion. I immediately made mvself ready, and went with the man to tho guard house. I was ushered intoibe com mon Court room, where several idlers had been assembled, who seemed to have no other business than to await my coming, but the Mnyor was not there." After waiting an liour wr bout seeing the Mayor, she was taken to a Cell, separa ted by a thin board partition from a room in winch were gathered the entire vaga bondism of that vagabond city, and lock ed up for the night, to "be kept awake by the screams, groans, profanity and obscen- ny 01 ter neiguuors, ana sunea wun me foul and fetid attnosphero of the prison. In the morning she was brought before the Mayor, where proceedings were had as fol lows: "The Myor read the' charges he had written down. No witness was called; no one appeare ! against me. The examina tion was as follows: . - "Mrs. Bo:Uford,you are accused of trea son and sedition f" "I am not guilty of treason or scditmn."' "I understand you. have been tampering with slaves." - "It is utterly false, sir. I have had no thing to say to the slaves." "You are an abolitionist f '. "Yes." ' "An adrairerof John Brown !" ."Yes."- - - "You have 'expressed abolition senti ment 1" . "I have on a few occasions when asked ; I can name ail I ever conversed with, and what I said to them 1 will say here. I have lived here nearly a year, attending closely to my business; I have not injur ed or olTonded any one, and hare been well Irenled until now. I cannot see why I should be subjected to this outrage." "You say that you have been well treat ed?" "Yes, until now." " "Then I think you' have been very un grateful ; you have been well treated, been profitably employed, and have received our money, while you hate us!" "I have not hated the people; I am no friend of slavery; I have Dot seen any thing in Charleston to give me a more fa vorable impression of it; quite otherwise. I have re:eived what I have earned. I owe you no gratitude." ; "I would advise you to go home.". "I shall certainly do so as soon as I can settle my business. I have do desjre to slay a moment longer." ''The Mayor then said he had not heard anything against my character. "You are spoken or said he, "as quiet and respect able. If you can find any one to be your bail for three hundred dollars, I can dis miss you." "I told him that I had not been guilty of any had conduct, and could not get bail. He then left the room with one or two more. As I afterwards learned he was persuaded I was an emissary for some Northern society or publisher. I saw no more of him. He sent the turn-key in ; I was ordered to the cell again, and locked op. Some of my friends from the house I left felt alarmed, and had been there sev eral times to inquire for me, and were rudely driven away." Subsequently Mrs. B., was taken before another magistrate, who increased ber bonds to 12000. Of her treatment in the presence of and by the functionary, 6he says: "Twenty or thirty citizens were gather ed there, and among tbem one whom I was acquainted with, and had conversed with about two weeks before. I 6poke to him and asked him if he was the complain- Hint. He said he was. I indignantly ask ed him if be was not ashamed of him self; if it was possible that he could do anything so contemptable. Without waiting for his reply the Magistrate answer ed it for him. "This man has done per fectly right; I should have done just so myself; why, if yon had been a man you would have been bung np on one of the trees in that Park, you would never have got here alive." I asked very calmly is any one wanted my life. No, tba Magi trate said; as I was a woman my life might be spared. Refusing to give bail she was remanded to prison, where she enjoyed tbe 'hospitali ty' of that emiuently hospl able and chiv alrous people for two months. The narra tive continues: "I walked through the streets by the side of the constable to the jail, which was at some distance; during this time two men were sent to search my room; tbey broke open my trunks and bundles, unrolled eve ry yarcel trying to find papers or letters; but they found nothing tbey wanted, though thev carried off one or two of my letters. When I got to the jail I was faint and exhausted ; it was now 6 o'clock of the second day ; I had not had a morel of food for nearlv forty eight hoars. - I sent to my friends, at the house which I had left, and just before the jail was to be shut up for tbe night, tbe lady of the house ap peared at the door. She had not been a! lowed to see me before though she had tried repeatedly. If she had not come just then I should not have had anything until the next dajr when the prison rations would be served. Tbe jailor had strict or ders to show me no favors ; I was to be lodged with the' common prisoners of the female ward; no one outside the walls was allowed to give me aid or comfort; I was to remain here four months, and then take my trial for sedition nnd treason. Tho jailor told me I must take leave of my friend, and go to tny quarters with the rest, as be was to lock the jail for the nigbt. The lady asked him if I should be com fortable! He said yes; I should fare with the rest; he could make no distinction without orders. So then I was to be a prisoner again, and not alone, but with such poor creatures as are the usual in mates of such places; two drunken, aban doned women, were to occupy the room wnb me. . ""This is a jail, Madam,' said the jailor, as he opened the door of the miserable cell; you cannot expect much here. I thought he was indeed right ; there was not the least comfort of any kind ; not an article of furniture; cetlnng but a dirty blauket on the floor to sleep on. Locked in hero with such company, with the roar of blood- houuds, that were loosed for tbe night to guard the yard, with the yeilings and clanking of chains of (he male 'prisoners, I passed anotber terrible night. 1 am cer tain I could not have endured all the pri vations of this place hid the orders of the magistrates beeii strictly crrried out." Hie sisters of chantylnterfered id her behalf, to those kind attentions Mrs. Bolts- ford probably owes her life. Through the r efforts sho was allowed to have a room by herself, though their endeavors to procure her relief werj ineffectual, and a kind hearted German, who spoke warmly iu ber bt hulf and offe el to procure bail was driv en from the c ty. A prutestant minister! also visited Mrs. B., whose conduct is in striking contrast to that of the Catholic Sisters ol Charity, as witness the follow ing: "As for myself, I sent no petition, wanted no favors. But justice and my liberty I demanded. The Rev. Dr. Howe, of St. Philip's Church, visited mo with Judge Pringle, on hearing that I was a member of his Church. They said they were sor ry to see roe a prisoner, asking, "Why are you here, and what have you done?'' I told them my story, and that 1 was there on a charge of treason and sedition, which was most ridiculous, as well as false; the treason was on their own part, not on mine. "You said you were au Abolitionist," said the minister. "Yes" "Oh, that's treason, that's sedition, most decidedly," waving his hand, as though it were a foregone conclusion." - "Oh, no," I answered ; "it is quite useless to try to persuade me that I have been guilty of anything like tbat I know what treason and sedition areas well as you. I know what the constitutional laws of our country are; I claim their protection. You are accountable to them ; you are not . out of the Union yet." "Well, we have slnve3, and we mean to keep tbem ; I own tbem myself. Wo are irrepressible despots, you must know ; we have laws here ffiat strictly forbid any snch expressions as you have made." "Such laws are nothing to me; let those obey them that choose to. I am no slave if you claim to be despots. I have my rights and m.ean to have them respected. "The minister advised me to send a pe tition to the Mayor and State's Attorney. If I would go home immediately, be would see what he could do for me. I positively refused to send any petition, asl had suffer ed and been most shamefully wronged, I I would not consent to be smuggled off in disgrace, I would be very glad to leave as as soon as I could go honorably. I turned to Judge Pringle and asked him if he would grant me a writ of habeas corpus. He would hear what the other party had to say. ' "The minister showed me some trifling favors in the way of affording me some bodily comforts, which I declined. They both seemed much perplexed, and to do these gentlemen justice, I believe they were heartily ashamed of the whole transaction. Mr. Northrop offered his services as my counsel. He seemed convinced that what I said was entirely true; but they were talking of revolution, and legal proceedings would be of little account, so 1 was con vinced that I need not expect anything but to remain in jail, I did not know how long. Mrs.Bottsford then ante to Mayor Wood of New York, of which city Mrs. B. is a resident, asking him to use his influence for her discharge, to which that disgrace to the world responded, by commanding her to acknowledge her errors before the Charleston authorities, in a contrite spirit, ind added : "No other power can aid you in the dis tress you have brought upon yourself, and you roust rely solely on the mercy of those who administer the laws you have broken, and the generosity of tbe people you have injured.'' The weather became cold ; a negro was hung before ber window, and her prison grew 'more and more dreary' and finally as Mrs. B. proceeds: , ,,"I asked my counsel what they were keeping me there for; their foolish charges were of no consequence whatever; nothing could be construed into a crime except tam pering with slaves; was there any one 4hey could name that had ever seen or beard me talking to slavas! No, tbey could not say, thatifbey had heard of any one that would bold themselves responsible tor sucn a statement. Before long 1 received letter saying that I had permission to leave in tho next steamer bound for New York, and that if I wawilling to leave, a carri age would be sent for me, and my passage paid. Of course I was not sorry to leave Charleston; a close carriage was sent to the jail, and a vigilant policeman to take care or me; there was a great commotion around the steamer; tbey were sending back 60 poor Irish laborers that had come out in the steamer and not been allowed to land ; they had. no provisions for their re turn voyage; the Minute men, with teiri ble oaths, were threatening to cut their throats if they dared put a foot on shore My attendant helped me aboard the ship, gave me my ticket, and turned away as-in haste to leave'. At a glance I saw I was booked for the deck passage with tbe'sixty Irishmen . The Mayor was so kind as to pay for us all 13 a head. I ran after the man, Here, sir," said I, "take this ticket back ; I am not going on the deck." He said I should not leave the ship, I would be obliged to go, as the Mayor ordered. I called for the captain, who came round and civilly beard what 1 had to say. - He said he would send a messenger and propose some atrangeraenl with tbe Mayor. I said I should never reach New York alive; I could nct endure the cold and exposure! and hoped he would refuse to take me. He asked me what I did propose to do. "I will go back to jail again and wait till my friends corne for roe." Soon the man returned, consulted with the captain a moment, and said to me, "You must go as you are ordered, the Mayor will not pay your passage in Ihe cabin." I indignantly answered, "I have not asked him to pay my passage, or for anything else. I want no favors from him; I shall go onshore; my friends will come for me." I was ma king my way off the steamer, when the captain stopped me, and offered me . com fortable accommodations in the cabin, if 1 was willing to leave Charleston, which offer I very gladly accepted. ' It is to Capt. Berry, of the steamer Columbia, that I am indebted for my aafo arrival in New York the last of November." Comment is" unnecessary,thoiigh we have no doubt, that thousands who read the truthful and simple narrative of Mrs. Botts ford, wiil exclaim as they finish its perusal, that "a re union with the miscreants, who thus put to blush the savages of tbe wild- crnese, in their treatment of unprotected females, is no longer a consummtion dev- autly to bo wished,' 'but rather to be avoid ed." ' ... How Life is Lost. A man died the other day" at the Belle vue Hospital, after being sick over two years. On opening the' chest there was scarcely a single inch of sound lungs on one side! The organ had broken down in one mass of corruption, and tbe yellow matter of consumption was dipped out with a skull, tbe most convenient cup at hand. He had. been working iff the garden one summer's day, and feeling a little tired, at noon, went round to the shady side of the bouse and sat down to rest. A little wind was blowing which was so very grateful to him that he indulged himself iu it for some miuutes, when he was taken with a chill, and never knew a well moment afterwards. Only two days ago, one of the sweetest possible pare of black eyes came to enquire, with all the shrinking nnd diffidence insep erable from the occasion, what we thought of tbe case of a young gentleman who bad applied for advice within a week, slating as a reason that they were engaged to be married. The young man had arisen one morning in early May and dressed in very light clothing, but be was so much mista ken in tbe temperature of tbe weather that he was soon chilled, without the means of changing bis condition for some time; '.hat is, he felt chilly for several consecutive hours, and has been an invalid ever since. The disease bad made such fearful progress, that two-thirds of bis lungs were useless to him; and emanciation, night sweats, harrassing cough and swollen feet, made it useless io afford tbe encouragement of even prescribing for tbe case. These two cases involve the same prin ciple getting chilled ! one after exercise, the other by remaining cold for hours. Snrely, it is not hard to remember the lesson.- Let every parent press it in tho mind of each'child. -IlalCs Journal of Health. BEAUTIES OF SHADOWS. all day long play at silent games of beauty. Every thing is doubl,-if it stands in light. The tree sees nn unrevealed and muffled self lying darkly along the ground. The slender stems of flowers, golden rods, way side asters, meadow daisies, and rare lilies, (rare and yet abundant in every nice, level meadow.) cast forth a dim nnd tremulous line of shadow, that lies long all the morn ing, shottening till noon and creeping out again from the root all thejaflernoon, until the sun shoots it as far eastward in the even ing as the sun shot it westward iu the morning. A million shadowy arrows such as these spring from Apollo's golden bow of light at every step. Flying in every direction, they cross, interlacing each other in a soft net work of dim lines. Meanwhile tho clouds drop shadow-like anchors, that reach the ground, but will not hold; every browsing creature, every flitting bird, every moving team, every unconscious traveler writes itself along the ground in dim shadow.

Whilo there, Col. Ferguson proposed that tbe men engaged on the boat should cut his wood.

To the General Assembly of Ohio: It cannot be longer disguised that the .Southern States, which now wage war up on the Uovernment of the United estates, begad in the seizure of ti e national fort resses, . arsenals, ships, money, and other property, and culminating in armed resis tance to the Government furnishing sup plies to the famishing garrison at Fort Sumter, have been, through tbe leaders whose intsrumentality brought about that issue, constantly conspiring against tbe in tegrity and iieace of the Union, by dis solving the compacts and long established precedent which settled the rights of the Government over its Territories, and thus contriving to subject them tbe State dom ination. Iu both aspects it is a war of conquest on the part of the malcontents in the Soutb, to spread fie dominion of slavery where it had been prohibited by law sanctioned by the common consent of all sections of the country during succes sive generations. Failing to accomplish this, even with the aid of faithless agents brought under their control in the several departments of the General Government, who could not defeat the laws of nature, these dangerous con- fedeia.es ngains! nil constitutional govern ment, have taken the sword in hand to conquer and partition the country. 'Aid ed by the treason of high officials in the administration of Mr. Buchanan, they have already seized many of tbe most im portant bulwarks erected by the Uuited States to secure the commerce and protect the shores and the whole interior of the country lrom invasion. J his armed iron- tier, which cost the nation more since mo establishment of its independence than tbe war which achieved it, is necessary alike to every portion of the Republic. Charleston, and the harbor now commanded by the forto built by the United States, was twice conquered by the Confederacy from the British. VYbilo in the bands ot a tor- eign power, it was- tue nasis oi military operations against tbe Northern States, atfeeting even the remotest. Can the Government of the United Slates relin quish this position to the petty power now assuming a mock sovereignty over it and the adjacent seas without subjecting its commerce and the whole interior of the country to the 'mercy of any formidable enemy it might introduce as an ally against the Union or which plight acquire a mas tery there in any other mode ! Must all the-other places of strength along the coast from the Chesapeake-Bay to the Rio Grande,which the United blates has made to frown with its fortresses and bristle with its cannon-to repel invasion and- affright pirates, and has illuminated with light bouses to poiut out the path to commerce must all these places be surrendered to the seceding States, to pass into the hands of any foreign nation which may supplant their power! If so, the slave States, in commanding the avenues of commerce from the vast interior States ot the North-and West to the Ocean, must subject them as conquered provinces. - What is to be the condition ot Uhio and all ber sister Slates in the Mississippi Valley it the slave Slates are to give law on tbe lower Mississippi ! Secession, the seizure aud appropriation of all (hat be longs to the United states i the seceding States, and the usurpation of all sovereigu rights over the adjacent seas and tbe nav igable steamers ami other avenues of com merce in that section of the Union, make a conquest which strips the interior of its independence, and the Government of tbe United Stales of the national . attributes conferred by tbe Constitution to maintain it and all the interests of the continent committed to its charge. - 1 rejoice to be able to assure you that the executive installed at the Capital is re solved to repel tbe attempt at conquest. It will assert all tbe rights conferred by the Constitution, by all the power with which it invests the Government. The most vigorous measures will be taken to resume the authority of the United Stales over ihe places from which it has been ex pelled; and 1 cannot doubt but that tne Kirpnm which floats the commerce of the regions between the Rocky Mountains and and the Aleglianies will be soon delivered by the General Government from tbe as sumed sovereignty which the States, pur chased from France, now aasert over it. But as the contest may grow to greater dimensions than is uow anticipated, 1 deem it my duty to recommend to the General Assembly of this State to make provision proportioned to its means to assist the National authorities in restoring the integ rity and strength of the Uuion in nil its amplitude, as the only means of recover ing the rights of the States, and assuring the permanent peace and prosperity of the whole country. I earnestly recommend, also, that an ap propriation of not'less than four hundred and fifty thousand dollars be immediately made for the purchase of arms and equip ments for the use of the volunteer militia of the Stale, I need not remind you of the pressing exigency for the prompt organization and arming of the millitary force of tho State. Accompanjjng this communication you will find a statement of tho Quarter-Mas-ter-Genoral, relative to the condition of the public arms. i to W. DENNISON.

The President of the United Slates has, by his proclamation of the date of the 14th. inst., called upon the militia ot the several States of the Union, to the aggrengate num ber of 75,000, to suppress certain combi nations in several of the States, which are too powerful to be suppressed Jo tber ordi nary war, and so to enable him to execute the iaws. . - .

I have assured tbe President that the people of Ohio will promptly respond to bis call, and will furnish the largest num ber of the reauiied force that he will re- ceive. This I h'ave done because of my knowl edge of your loyalty to the Union, and your devotion to tue iree institutions trans mitted to us by our fathers. The people of Ohio, while ever ready to extend to tteir brethren ol tue omer Slates all their just rights and the full ben efit of all Constitutional guarantees, will spare neither men nor means for the pres ervation of the Union and the- defense of the National honor. Now, by virtue of my office, as Govern or of the State of Ohio", I call upon you organize yourselves into companies and notify me thereof. General orders will be is.ued from the depatment, informing yon all the details relating to the organiza tion and the mustering into service. The requisition npon Ohio is for thirteen (13) regiments for immediate service.' . War is now waged against your Gov ernment by the insurgent' States of. the South. Actual hostilities have commenced Armed resistance has been successfully made by tbe rebels of South Carolina, to the efforts of the Government to furnish supplies to the famishing garrison of Fort Sumter. Tbe national flag has been in. suited, and the safety of the National Capital is threatened. Your patrolism points to you tbe path of duty in this crisis. You need no appeal from me to testify youT loyalty to the General Government. The Constitution roust be maintained ; the Union must be preserved, ami the laws W. DENNISON. JC2TA Dutchmon, looking for a person by name of Dunn, who owed him a "small account," asked a wag near an eating-house, Chatham street, as he "wished to find Dunn." The wag told him to go into the eating-house, and the first person at the first table was the genllemau be was in quiring for. The Dutchman went in, about slow as a jackass towards a peck of oats. and this "first gentlemau" happened to be Irishman. "Are yon Dunn !" said the Dutchman. "Done!" says Pat; "by my sowl, I am only jtst comnunctd. jOSoine' things come by odd names. The most uncommon quality iu man is "common sense" a paper half a mile leng is called a ' brief;" and a melancholy ditty, devoid of sense or meaning, is a "glee." r The Union It Shall be Preserved. The secessionists have sadlytnisconstra ed the public-sentiment of tbe Free States. They have been so beside themselves as to think the entire Democratic party of the North sympathise with tbem even to the wish for dissolution; they have also egre giously overrated the Abolition strength . of the Free Slates whose creed is that a Union with slaveholders is not worth pre serving and they even have become so in sane as to expect armed aid and comfort from lbe Democratic armies from tbe Free States. The discovery of their error will be the saddest hour of their lives, for such a response will be made to a call to arms to sustain the Union as shall soon convince .them that the North, in its devotion, knows nopolitical parties. . True, Democracy has played the coquette in a most desperate struggle for retention of power, and we believe that. couTd that party, even by a bloodless revolution, giant the secessionists all they ask under a reconstruction of thepresent' Union, it would be glad to do so; but when it comes down to the plain question of an armed attempt to overthrow the Government and to depose a constitutionally elected Presi dent, the apolgists in that part will be very Jew, and the adherents of secession fewer still. Already at the sound of the first gur, nnd while the news from the' seat of conflict is vague and uncertain, do the Democratic papers rally nnder the Stars and Stripes, and keep step to the music of tbe Union. The Plain Dealer of this city says: ' It is our country. It belongs neither to the. Cotton or Congo party.and when its existence is endangered,' as now, by these rival sections, we have got an active and a ' patriotic duty to perform. What is that, duly! It is this Under any President legally elected, under any Administ$atio constitutionally recognized as the Govern tnenl de facto, the flag of the Rebublic, the Stars and Stripes, must be triumphantly sustained over all its enemies, foreign or domestic. ' . . - So we say, God speed the Federal forces at Fort Sumterl ' Let. the whole power -of the Government be brought to bear npon the rebels who first fired upon- an unarmed vessel on a peaceful mission of supplying provision to our famishing troops, and who offered the first insult ever unavenged, (8 -ihe American flag." Let our 'war vessels be summoned - to act in ' concert with Sumter, and open their fire npon the enemy, batter down their ' Forts, hum their towns and sendur conquering pen ants all along the coasts until oar rights as a Nation are vindicated and cotton be gotten inlo subjection to Congress and tbe Constitution. The Cincinnati Enquirer, than which no Democratic paper North has been more violentin condemning the efforts to check the spread of Slavery, and than which no paper has been more ready to grant every humiliation the slave power might demand, avows its sympathy with the glorious . Stars and Stripes as follows: "From.the despatch it appears that the Southern Army commenced the attack np on Fott Sumter and before any hostile demonstrations had been made npon them. Tbey broke the status quo which has so long prevailed, and upon them clearly rests tbe immediate responsibility for the blood ly strike which has been -inagurated. They are the aggressors in first break ing the peace, and will receive the indig nant condemnation of every pafriot. The anus of fault tbey cannot choke off While we look to the future with dread and apprehension,- while we- deplore the sad state of things which exists, we reiter ate a sentiment we have before expressed that if war and bloodshed rage through out the land', making it desolate, our 'sym pathies will be with the stars and stripes. We hope no dishonor will fall upon thalf happen what may. The Delaware(OhioVin(fari; a strong, uncompromising Democratic paper, says: From the news received this morning we have tbe startling intelligence tbfft civil war has been fuagurated by tbe seceeding States. Whatever may have been our views hilherto, this event has changed them, for we intend to stand by the Gov ernment in the maintenance of law, and putting down . treason wherever found, North, Soutb, East or West. For tS present we are done with politics, and shall strive in our humble manner to support tbe Government under which we Jive, and to which we-were sworn to be loyal on be coming a citizen. Therefore, weal or wo, we shall stand by the "Stars and Stripes. As an exception to this general burst of ' patriotic devotion to the Union comes a tory cry from the Columbus Statesman. That paper evidently would delight in see ing Washington in possession of the trait ors. Recollect this isapenned twelve hoars after it is certainly known that the secess ionists have opened fire on Sumter. We h'ave now and then'a traitor among us, and he wherpenued the article in tbe Statesman is one oi them. The Statesman says: What means all this military preparation at the seat of onr Federal Government! The people are not permitteafto know. The Administration proceeds with the cautions secrecy of the most arbitary despotic court, and acts as though it suspected every cit izen of the District of Columbia who en rolls himself as a volunteer in 'the force which the President and Gen. Scot l are raising for the alleged protection of Wash ington, is required to take an oath of al legiance to the United States, and of obe diance to the President and the officers appointed by bis authority. No wonder that many of tbem retuse io suorau io this implied and degrading suspicion of their loyalty to their country. The language of the Columbus Fact well applies to the enemy of the Stars and Stripes who pen did those lines. It says.: "Men who have discharged their North. em blood by sympathizing with the South ern oligarchy, . bad better change their tune,and that speedily. None but traitors deserving the gibbet will be found sustain ing the cause of the .southern renew. Those who are not for lha Stars and Stripes are against them."
