Mr. Brccltlnridse's Speech.
Mr. Breckinridge, the candidate of the
Democracy for tlie office of Vice President,
was at Cincinnati last Saturday. He was
on hia way to the tattle ground of Tippeca
noe, where, yesterday, the greatest multi
tude of people that ever met at a political
gathering were assembled as tlie friends of
Liuchanan and ISrcckim idiro, to advance their
interests. Of that gathering we have no
account; but the people ot Cincinnati did
not permit Mr. Breckinridge to pass through
that city, without giving him a call, and a
real call it was. ISo fuil report of his speech
was received, but the following from the
Cincinnati Commercial will show something
of its spirit:
He said that he was as much surprised as
gratified at the reception he had received.
He was on his way to a mass meeting in In
diana, where lie had been induced to pro
ceed to meet his friends, and only expected
here to receive the hospitality of the citizens
for a day and pass on. He accepted the
ovation he had received, not as a tribute to
him personally, but a testimonial of the feel
ing of the people for the party of which lie
was a humble member. He was from the
next State south of us, but he felt happy
that he was here, north of the fatal line that
sectionalists would draw across the heait of
the Union, among fiiends. He received
their shouts of approbation not for himself,
but in the name of his party. He saw on
me oanners arounu mm mat they were
those of the whole country, erery star and
stripe were there blazoned, undimmed and
unstained. The people before him, in the
temper, anu spirit, ana ngni oi wn-isecoun- j
tenances l.e rt-j'ticed, hart been told often
about the danger of the Un:on. No man in i
the Union was more utterly disgusted with
the wanton and eternal cry and clamor that i
the Union was in danger than he was. He I
was rick of it. Hut no-, the individual mut I
be blind indeed who did not see that reallv
the Union was in imminent danger. " i
They had bem Uli so often, by reckless j
ar.d dissatisfk-d persons, but r.l ;Jis S',!.t:i: j
time he was ur th-re r,;is no fi'ic a'arm, i
but that the peril to the coiif.jera.-y was '
great and prc-sing. A sectio. al party. Lav- '
ing no exit-tcr.ee in but S'Xteen of the States,
making no appeal to fifteen of the States, 1
bounded in tai l and in spirit by geographical ;
lines, proposed to rule the Union with a po- '
licy at enmity with the interests an 1 wi.hes ;
of fifteen of the States, through its press
and orators using language and fulminating
sentiments', calculated to destroy thecwtieord ,
a..d amity bttween the North "and South 1
and as the Union was one not only of people, j
but r.overein States, depending upon cordial :
good feeling among all for its existence not
to te prtserved by fjree net to be upheld ,
by bayonets but to bo sustained in ihe :
hearts of the people it w as truly Uidung-.r. i
He liiade i.-j threats (iod ftifi.id ttial l.e
!n tild threaten but he Stated a great fact !
in our j o iti'.ul system. The 1 'eino'Tatic :
party, presenting itself wHi material force
in tvtry IatituJp, was the only bond of
Union left. 'J he permanence ef'liiC Union :
i. j eii!ej upon this parly. All other bi:i(JH) j
eivi: an 1 ece.usia.-.tical, had been snappe-d ; :

Frosts Corn Killed. AVe were sorry
to observe, on our return from the East last
week, that most of the corn along the line
of the Michigan Southern Ilai'road, between
Sturgis Prairie and Toledo, had been killed
by the frost. We were told that it occurred
on the 27th of August. How far it extend
ed north and south we did not learn. It
was a little curious to see fields only a short
distance apart, some of which were unin
jured and others are entirely destroyed.
This was owing, doubtless, to the situation
of the respective fields in reference to tim
ber. We could account for it no other way.

The startling accounts that reach us from
Kansas, of the massacre of southern set
tiers, the burning of their houses, and
doubtless the murder of their wives and

state men the attempt of the majority of
the republican house of representatives, to

ed with proper authority to preserve peace
and put a stop to bloodshed the deliberate
defeat of the Army Appropriation Bill, with
the design of palsying that important arm
of the government--the incendiary articles

friends in the territory, and inciting thein to
further acts of murder and arson their
open promises of "aid" in the shape of re
inforcement from the northern states to the
now aggressing party all these things taken
in connection with the the admissions that
have from time to time been wrung from the
leaders of the republicans, or that have oc
casionally dropped from their lips, point dis
tinctly to the line of policy to be pursued by
that party, and to the ends they labor to ac
complish. We are no alarmists ; indeed, wo believe
that we have been accustomed to look with
too great indifference upon the dangers that
have, from time to time, tin catened the
Union, and to believe perhaps loo readily,
that the sound sense and patriotism of the
American people would always be found
sufficient to resist the attacks of fanaticism,
and to defeat the wicked schemes of reckless
adventurers. Jut it would be folly it
would be madness. to di.-regard the startling
evidt-ncts that are now presented us, of the

Some two months since there w as a meet-
ing of an publican Kansas convention in
liiiiralo, at w hich the prominent men cf th 1
party figured conspicuously. There, openly !
and plainly, Gcriit Smith declared that the '
avowed intention of the republicans was to
send armed men into Kansas for the purpose
of resisting the troops of the fedcial go- j
verniiiii.t, and making war upon the institu- !
tion of slavery in the southern stales. i
There was no misapprehension in w hat Mr.
mith said. He otlered a series of resolu- 1
tions, that were suppressed by the conven- j
tion, and stolen away from the reporters,
avowing the intention of armed opposition 1
to the federal troops ; and he stated in his i
place, that either the party was deceiving j
those who were in its confidence, or such j
was its real design, and such the object for j
which it sought to raise a Kansas fund. j
(jov. Keeder, the very mouthpiece of the i
republican party on uil Kansts matters,) as- :
senttd to ail Mr. Smith said; but favored I
the policy of concea'ing their real design, in :
order that they might strike a fatal blow at ;
the heart of th south when she was lea-t j
prepared to meet it. Hut he did not pret nd ;

Weil a large amount of money has been i
raised. Not a dollar of it has found its way !
into Kansas, for the relief of the needy set
tler, and the inquiry has gone forth, what
has become of the lund ? The first answer,
we fear, is heard in the murder of southern
settlers, the burning of their dwellings, and
tho massacre of their families. Heaven only
knows in what tones the next reply may
reacli our ears.
Trace once again, in connection with
these facts, the apparently systematic and
preconcerted action of the republican con
gress, aud the tone of their press through
out the north. The house of representa
tives, at the very moment when an in
creased force is necessary in Kansas, seeks
to w ithdraw the troops of the United States
from the territory, and to deprive the entire
military department of the government of
all power and efficiency. The press misre
presents their object and applauis theiit ac
tion, while redoubling its elforts to fan the
spark of civil war into a blaze. We ask
reasonable men to say whether this doe not
look like a systematic plan for hastening on
those scenes of bloodshed and honor which
must end in a disruption of the Unioji?
We entreat all good citizens, all patriotic
Americans, to ask themselves seriously if
there is not reason for alarm and occasion
for action ? I
It is idle now to talk of border ruffians,
and Missouri invaders, and southern aggres
sion. It is wotse than idle it is sinful to
endeavor to justily these terrible acts by the
plea of "the south began it." It resolvts it
self to this do we or do we not desire to
see Americans . armed against Americans ;

Henry Ward Heccher Politlcul Preach-
The subjoined fetter to the reverend ! edit
or of the Independ-nt, giving the writer's
reason for withdrawing his support from tlrat
disgraceful sheet, we commend to the atten
tion of our readers. Beecher, in one of his
recent papers, boasts of numerous additions
to his list of subscribers, but says nothing
of the subtractions. The letter that
has not only been received at his otiieej but
acted upon : vet ho makes no allusion to it.
It is not improbable trat this is but one of
many of similar purport received by him.
Every good Christian who loves his country,
and would, according to the divine injunc
tion, "render unto Caesar the things that
are Cassar's," should do likewise.
It may not be amiss to say that Thomas
Jefferson, more than forty years ago, fore
saw the existence of such 'clerical dema
gogues as Parker, Beecher, Tyng, Ac, who
have transmogrified the altars of our church
es into partisan platforms. In 1815, the
Rev. Mr. McLeod delivered a sermon in
which he, with vast ability, maintained the
ground that the second war of independence,
the war of 1812, was "made on good ad
vice." A copy of this sermon was sent to
Mr. Jefferson by Mr. Wendover.
It will be borne in mind that at that peri
od, as at this, the New England clergy, and
we say it with great pain, were in direct an
tagonism with the policy of Mr. Madison's
administration. The pulpit, with some ho
norable exceptions, dealt anathemas against
the prosecution of the war, and thus gave
"aid and comfort" to the enemy. In ac
knowledgment of the receipt of this favor
from Mr. Wendover, Mr. Jeffers-on wrote a
letter which can be found in his published
woiks. He admired tiie discourse of the
Iiev. Mr. McLeod, but administered hiin a
nio krate and gentle rebuke. We make the
fallowing extracts to give the point of this

A gentleman of this city, w ho is a regular
attendant at the Baptist Church on E!m

sermon announced for the evening's service
at that church on Sunday last, was not to

condemn any man unheard, and thinking
doubtless that his kioht to hear the Gojel
and the Gonpel only from his own and his
family's sacred desk would not be disregard
ed, he concluded not to depart from his usual
custom of a Sunday evening, and so went to
the house of worship. What was his sur
prise to hear, instead of a Sermon of iove
and peace, a denunciatory and exciting ha
range upon the parti.aa movements of the
day ! When he found how he had been by
fraud Feduced into a Fremont and Hamlin
Sabbath caucus and when he had listened
to what he deemed to be the revolutionary
and unpatriotic "stumping" of the Rev. Mr.
Studley, till his patience knew no bounds,

Mr. Buchanan's remark on slavery has ia it
a whole volume of truth :
"Most happy, would it be for the country
if this long agitation were at an end. Dur
ing its whole progress it has produced no
practical good to any human being, whilst
it has been the source of great and danger
ous evils. It has alienated and estranged
one portion of the Union from ; the other,
and has even seriously threatened itj, very
existence. To my personal knowle'dge, ii
bus produced the impression among foreign
nations that our great and glorious confede
racy is in constant danger of dissolution.
This does us serious injury, because acknow ledged
power and stability always command
respect among nations, and are among the
best securities against unjust a.gression and
in favor of the maintenance of an honorable
Patriot! ponder all that over! What
practical good has slavery agitation done to
any human being? If it goes on who can
calculate the evil it will certainly do the
country ! But let slaveiy agitation sink and

A Republican Church. Although Black
Republicanism is rife in every section of the

there is an express pledge against slavery in
the articles or covenant of the Freewill Bap
tist church. Under this covenant, three
men in the town of Prospect, Maine, were
actually expelled from the church for no
other cause than voting the Democratic
ticket! under the pretence that, by so do
ing, they had broken the covenant against
slavery! One Elder Clark, a prominent
member of the church, was severely cen
sured for voting the Democratic ticket, but
in consideration of his services and piety,
was allowed to renew covenant and fellow
ship with the church.
