Three cheers for the good old Flag I May it never trad iu dust ; And the unsheathed sword of Liberty lie never soiled with rust: May the spirit live that braved the foe, L'uawed, unconquered still, Aud Sashed in Are at Lexington, And blazed at Hunker Hid. Three cheers for the good old Flag, By sages loved and bards ; And in the shadow that it casts. Meet sternly -softs" and "hards."

' J--n" Everv man of sense and we hone the re mark is equally true of the "strong-minded women" who are expected to sign ttiese pe titions: every man of sense knows that no action will be taken hy either House under j the instruction of the petitioners. Indeed, they do not expect any such action, li.ey simply want to stir up a hostile feeling to wards the South and gain votes for Fre mont. It is scarcely worth while to reascn in op position to a petition of this kind; yet we may call attention ti it reasoning: The foundation of this whole disur.hn project is based on the proposition that "Ji the nature f things, anttiyoriisticjil princi ple, intercuts, pursuits aiul inatitutiom can ncxer vnite." Tiiekefop.e inasmuch as North ami South are assumed to be "anta gonistical" in all respects mentioned there fore, the petitioners go for dissolving the Union. We must say in all plainness, the man who drafted the petition is even more a blockhead than a knave. In tho material world "antagonistic principles" produce the firmest unities. Let the author consult che mistry for illustration. The author fails to tell precisely hoie he would have certain "in t restst, pursuits and institutions . unite ;" but it is probable he meant they should exist in harmony, lie must mean that, if anything. Rut Catholic principlc and Protestant principles Catholic institutions and Protes tant institutions "unite" in this Fensc at the North and at the South, in the free coun tries of Europe as well as in America. In Italy, Spain and some other countries, the ruling power acts upon the reasoning of this petition that "antagonist c principles and institutions can never unite;" and, there fore, Protestantism is proscribed. The au thor of this petition must admire the policy of the bigoted tyrants of Southern Europe, where "antagonistic principles and institu tions" are rooted out as fast as they are de veloped. Formerly Quakers were whipped in Mas sachusetts, aud Catholics and Protestants alternately burned at the stake in "chris tianized" Britain, because the ruling faction believed tkat "antagonistic principles of re ligion could never unite : and they laid that the wrong should be extirpated by firel in order to make room for the right Rut now, Quaker and Puritan in Massachusetts, and Catholic and Protestant in Cireat Bri tain, live together in comparative harmony. So the "interests" of buyer and seller, of consumer and producer, of manufacturer and importer, are "antagonistic". in their community. But at the same time they not only "unite" or live together In amity, but each "antagonistic interest'' is necessary to the prosperity of the other.

But when ft similar project is started by a treacherous faction assuming to speak for tlte majority ; when it is started as an electioneeniii; trick designed siuiulv to add nev elements of bitterness and exaspe ration to a Presidential canvass, the case is entirely different. The project and its au thors are deserving of the severest punish ment that an energetic and wholesome pub lie opinion can intlict. If any of these pe titions bo presented to either House, we trust the names signed to them will be bent back to the Democratic press of the various localities whence they come, in order that the embryo traitors may be held up to the contempt of the community in which thejr live. The Fremont Nomination. The last Rochester Union a democratic journal, which from the first opposed be repeal of the Missouri Compromise has the following candid article relative to the sec tional nomination of Fremont and Dayton. That journal says : To the great body of the people, utterly irrespective of party divisions, no intelli gent man will hesitate to concede honest and patriotic mot.ves for their political acts. They may, among themselves, di'fcr widely in opinion and political action; but their I purposes are substantially the name they all desire to prcmote the welfare of the country, and to perpetuate our free institu tions unimpaired to the latest generation. Especially do we desire that ail our political artiries should be understood as tonfonnin? ! to this theory. It is in this spirit that we call attention to the fart, that however patriotic the inten tions of Fremont's supporters, he is essen tially a disunion candidate ; though we by no im arts charge the t las of his friends with being at heart disunionists. In fifteen States not only will Mr. Fre- ! inont fail to get a single electoral vote, but ! no, one of bis most siiiguine sjpporters cx ) peits him to get an electoral vote in all those tiftt-en States. In not more than one or two of the fifteen Stat s wiil a Fremont electoral ticket be thought of; in not one of the fifteen wiil a Fremont ticket be run in good faith. Wherever Fremont is supported at all, he is supported as an aressivc candidate, re presenting a sectional platform, and a senti ment hostile to the wh le fifteen Southern States. Whether t'.i hostile attitude isjus tiiiablu we will not inquire; but the fact stated is undcniahle Let us not be considered as alarmers we are not afraid, and we w ou d not excite ths f. ars of other. Hut we ak candid men suppose Freiuotit were elected, would there not Oe j:Ood ground for the moet serious ap I r. lwtisioiia ?

Indeed, could the great calamity long bu averted Its; relii ctioii prove these 'pic&tions to be idle let them be so treated, if uot, let them be only pondered. The North, in our judgment, has griev ances of wuicu she way justly complain. but none whirh wi'l juslilv measure, to-ia to irea.-onable results. The repeal of the Missouri compromise was, in our judgrarn', a great wrong, and a great blunder on the part of those who perpetrated it. Wo de nounced it in terms in comparison with which the denunciation s of the "Dcirfocrat" and kindred prints were the mere illustra tions ot impotent venom. Hut the Repeal is a Fait; and Lot even the Republicans pro pose the riptal of the Repeal. What they do propose is to make the repeal of the Mis souri line the mens of attaining power. There have been outrages in Kansas which all good citizens have denounced, and which ail ought to deplore. Rut the "out rages" of the present day are bold fab:Ka tions of the Fiemoiit press. The Tribune and other Fremont papers have each a corps of rcpuiters iu Kansas, and their business is to manufacture "outrages" when there are none to report. Never has a country been s egregiously humbugged as has our own in rcsoect to these Kansas "outrages. lut wc cali,l0t amplify this point at present.

Since then the volcano Ins remained quiet, and the only symptom of its working has been the smoke rising up in all directions from cracks and fissures in the ground. The streams of lava on the slopes are still so slightly eoolctl that people dare not ven ture to any great distance from the shore. According to the account of the native peo ple, the top of the mountain does not appear to have undergone any noticeable change. On the other side of Kandhar, on the ex treme north point of the island, tbe appear ance of tho devastation which has been caused, is, if possible, even more frightful than what has taken place at Taruna. For Jiere, where formerly were to be seen exten sive fields, bearing all kinds of crops, and thickly planted and endless groves of cocoa nuts, we now find nothing but lava, stones and ashes. The liquid tire seems at this point to have flowed from the mountain with irresistible force and in prodigious quanti ty. Not only has this fearful Hood, as it were, buried thv whole district and all that was upon it, but after having caused this destruction over an extent of several miles, it was still powerful enough on reaching the shore, to form two long tanjongs or capes, at places where the dep h of water formerly consisted of many fathoms. A number of other districts and places have been, some wholly destroyed, others greatly injured by the fire. The loss of life has been great.

Dr. Cox is an eminent Presbyterian clergyman, settled fwr many years in New York : THE NATION EKJITT TEAKS OLD THIS DAT. In these stimulating and critical times, it seems dilficult, for an honest and sober cler gyman, either to keep his place, or some times to know what and where his place is. Loving as I do my country, " with all its faults," yet not loving its faults, I desire to do any proper thing lor its welfare, that I can do in consistency w ith my official duties, as. a minister of a kingdom not of thU vorll. Our national crisis is alarming; and de monstrates some results and perils, which we have predicted, fi otn processes at work to produce them, of which we know the operations ; and the consequences of which, when they occur to the common damage, are ignored by the authors of the means that induced them. They do mi hief, and then say what a pity! I told you so ! Ministers of Christ ought to preach not politics, but the gospel. This is their theme, and their store-house of themes, fur the education of the people, ami their offspring vith them, for heaven. This is neter to be superseded, or neglected, or performed with a slack hand. Time for eternity should they redeem. 1 think also that a minister of Christ ought not to be a partizan, certainly not a section alist. . He ought to be superior to both. He cannot properly be a mere servile or an ap pendix to some human pi ron and his for tunes, as a candidate for office, presidential, or any other. There is a happy medium. He has duties to his country, especially iu the United States of America. He ought to pray in private, an l especially in publ c, for his country ; a-:d tins with solemn and con- ii'iuig tiitercesaioii ior us temporal and s;n- 1 ritual we, fare.

But of one thing I am not afraid to write or speak in public, or pray in pu pit or in closet, and that is I will never vote, or act, or speak for anything, directly or indirectly, that tends to seciiona'.izu the country, or make civil war, ir dissolve the Union ! Never No! Tendencies, as history uiournful'y shows, become actualities often ; and that, before common forecast anticipates or be lieves it W her.- passion rules, reason va nishes. "In the agonizing spacing of infu riated man," as Jefferson phrases it, how often are we precipitated in the spirit of real wrath, to spring a mine, to conllagrate a city, to " deluge all Holland," or to enact some other potent mischief, for which no re pentance can ever begin to be an atonement. I believe that could the furies who coolly or warmly speak of burning the constitution and dissolving the Union, accomplish, in their hot has'.e, all that they desire and in tend, as is their boast, they would find, too late for themselves and all others, that they had only enacted universal mischief; that they had cured no evil; they had only made bad" infinitely worse; and that their success were only the worst kind of defeat, for all parties! It would damage the north, the south, the east, the west, all in one confu sion of ruin. It would bless-not tho slave more than his master ; and ad the best hopes of civilization, philanthropy aud Christian freedom would perish, with that stellar arch that makes our country's wondrous tiama ment! God gram that so wasting a desola tion may never occur! In a word are we a Christian people ? a nation of Christians, at least nominally such in the main? Why not try to treat each other in a way corresponding with that high profession? Forbearance, patience, wis dom, considerate prudence, yes ! and pray er to God for our eountry and all its inte rests, amplified and perpetuated by his own providence, as our Great Jehovah btator, the Omnipotent Lord Patron, the all suffi cient custodian of the United States of America. . Our country is fourscore years of age this day ! Blessed be God that it has so marvel ously outlived, and fa'sified tho "monthly prognosticators," the wish-framed prediction of its enemies 1 that it now commences the last score of its first century of nationality and independence! that in ils inaugurated age, its venerable octagnerian maturity, its children and its grand children, and its un born hundreds of millions of posterity may begin gratefully to rejoice before the God of our lathers, determined that, by nis assist ing mercy, we will grow wiser and better, stronger and nobler ; and that the disinte gration of our national Union shall exist no more, even in the imagination of an Ameri can! , .

The spring was v ry c! 1, vv..t( and backward ; the oat crop wa. got it, very late ; much f it sown in May, at thu time w h. .. Turn j ou.:ht tJ have- been plaiting corn; c0rie- qtienuy corn pointing was crowded it, tithe first of Jjfif, tlu- greater part beitik- planted about the middle of May; a gr.at du-d ol it came up badly ; in some cases from defect ive seed, in others from th impiopor Hut. of tl.e land, which caused much ol it to re quire planting over, in sonio instance two or three times. It finally got a pretty good start, when of the most disastrous droughts set in that we have hal for many yeais, commencing the latter part of May and continue until Aug j.t4th, when we had a soaking rain. This rin revived tho corn, although it was much injured and some fields pant he'p; yet w think probable Wd w ill get half an averags crop if it continues wet, and we have a favorable fall. The o .t crop was a'niost a failure; tho late sowin was so short it could scarcely be cut ; thd grain is heavy, but the yeald is very light, not more than a third of an averag- crop. The grass in the spring bid fair f,.r a Imarw crop of hay. ft stool the winter very well, but after the heavy rains of spring it set in so dry that it was injured Very much; but little moro than half a crop. F.r!y potatoes w ill not yeald more than the seed in many instances. The young gra. sowed in thu spring in th winter grain and oats, has nearly all p.-ri-hed. There will be no sec ond crop of clover for seed. I should sup pose there is not a bushel of seed to be cut in this neighborhood or probablv in the township.

Many corn fi -Ids are e-ntirtily destroyed by them already, an ! othrs can only be saved by timely and co pious rains." A le tter from Marseilles, by the last t"am er, says: The crop of wheat in the south of France is under an average; that of tho north still p-otnises well, but let it be ever so good, as the granaries all over the country are empty, we carnot depend on the interior to make up for our deficiency, and we shall have to import l'irgi-ly again from Foreign Countries this season. The difforonce in price that existed between merchandise on the spot and that for future deliveries, ten Is gradually to diminish. The Indian corn crop looks well. We are informed by a gentleman just re turned from a visit over the North part of the Teintory, that the grass-hoppers are committing sad havo.- on the grow ing crops. Every stun of grass, weed and buh seems literally covered with these destructive in sects, and in many instances acres on acres of tine meadow have been completely d bt roved. Minnesota limes.
