Tke Douglas Reception on Monday Ua Douiidcd ICmhuaiaMii. On Friday evening of lat week we re ceive! a despatch from Chicago, that Judge Docoi.as would pass Ottawa on the noon train on Monday (at 12:5",) anil that the train would stop long enough to enable him to make a short ppeecli. Handbills were printed, and an announcement made in Saturday's Free Trader, which was all the notice the brief time intervening would admit ot About 11 o'clock on Monday another despatch was received, announcing that i.. stead of arriving at 12:5-". Mr. Douglas had taken a special train, and would ar rive at 11:5:"), an hour earlier than the time previously announced. Our people, and hundreds from the country who had al ready arrived in town when this second despatch was received, at once moved towards the elepot, and as Democrats krpt .... i r .1. arriving in large numbers from the coun try, they were hastily turned in the fame j direction. Promptly at 11.55 the train arrived, and Judge Doiui.AS, who was literally carried from the car to the temporary stand that Lael been erected, was received with such a shout of enthusiasm as none but he can excite. The crowd by this timo number ed some three thousand, and was receiv ing additions as rapidly as the croweled streets to the depot would admit of. Judge D. was introduced in a fow words by Mr. Cushman, and ; proceedeel at once to address the people, wasting no time on preliminaries, but plunging into media res. He packed into a speech of fiteen minutes, certainly tho best resume we had yet heard of the issues upon which the country is now divideel, and laid bare the dangerous tendencies of the creeds of the opposition, j and defended the doctrines of the Democ racy, with a condensation, force, and clear ness attainable by no other speaker we ver heareL Our country was in the j th enjoyment of profound peace, pros- j perous beyonel any otheron the face of the j arth, and yet the people were discontent ed, and our free, happy institutions threat ened with disruption and ruin. Where lay the danger? It lay in the discussion f the slavery question in Congress. Har mony and domestic peace always prevailed in this country while Congress let this question alone, and embittered feeling pre vailed and dire elisaster threateneel when Congress touched it The Republican par ty at the North, and the Breckcnridge party at the South proposed to thrust this question again upon Congress in its most dangerous form, by intervening on the sub ject of slavery in the Territories. The Democracy proposed to banish the qncs tion from Congress by letting the people of the Territories dispose of it for them selves, on the principle of popular sover eignty. Why should Congress intervene? -I tie Uepumicans oi ie mn, ana . , - f t . , jit Breckenridge men at the .South tell us that if the territories were anoweu to qo as they please, they will ruin themselves. It was the tyrant's plea the world over. Co to the Emperor of Austria and he will tell you all he desire is the happiness of liis people. Ask him why, then, he is not . ajjourn ;t is contended that no legal ad willing to let them goveru themselves, and j journmeut of either has taken place, and he will tell you they would ruin theinselvs. j nierabers f both houses remain at the Goto England and ask her goverment why calJttcl and are" trying to enforce the at they don't let Ireland have her own Parlia j temjance of absentees. ment and make her own laws, and they will j tell you, the poor Irish would ruin thorn- j I)or,,LAS , tsOTAXa The largest polit elves; then go to the United States and aks ! -icai meeting eTer jieid in Indiana took tho renutlicans and Southern necessnists t.laA tt i,7;ni;a Tuesdav, on tho why they are not willing to ici me people of the Territories govern themselvca, and and they give yon the name answer they will ruin themselves ! He believed no such thing. "Your fa ther, brothers and sons that have emigra ted to tho Territories had their senses and were capable of governing themselves wem, they .-left- Illinois. Did they lose their eeneee when they arrived in Ne braska? If th Territories are opposed to slaverv let them banish it and enjoy all the bUW! 4h4'ir r ther want it, and it is so great a curse, let Uom till it rtiQfi. thcro, aud the-y will corns to their senses. It was no affair of ours." Such was hbout the Iiue of Mr. D.'s speech, but expressed in that terse,- ner vous style wo cannot pretend to imitate. The argument was certainly not new, but it is one that is crushing in its forco where ever repeated, and during this whole con test has not been successfully assailed. By the time Judge D. concluded, there were at loast 5,000 people at the depot, and a perfect stream still pouring in from La Salle street. The locomotive gavo a couple 6hrill screams, Judge D. hastily clambered on board, and was off, amidst tho firing of cannon, the playing of the Ottawa band, and the deafening shouts of the multitude. October Elections. CRKAT ltr.PUm.ICAN VICTORIES IN lciui4ylvaiil;i, Ohio Indiana. ONE JUMP FORWARD, AND Two Jump Backward! Our Republican friend feel jubilant, and not without reason. They hav elected their candidate for Governor in Pennsyl vania by from 15,000 to 30,000 majority ; in Ohio by 12,000 to 1S.00O: and in Indi ana by from 8,000 to 15,IH. They have also elected a large majority of the mem bers of tha Legislature in all of thesse Statea. That at the first blush such newt is dis couraging, stunning to the Democracy, we are free to admit; but on a closer ex amination of the elements of these Repub lican victories, it must be admitted, wo find much to conifot ftlie Democracy, and to abate from the jubilation and confidence of tha Republicans. Let us briefly review the victories in their order: Pknnsvlvania. In "this State the Doug las and Brecken ridge democracy under took to form a perfect union on a State ticket Foster, their candidate for Go vernor, undertook to sail between the two wings. The consequence was, he was coldly supported by both, while tho whole Bell and Everett party was driven into the support of Curtin. We find thus, on coin- paring the late vo.e with that oflSif., that, Foster receivd the Jiuchauan vote of that year and Curtin the Fillmore and Fremont vote united, of tho same year. Thus : Fill, and Ere. united. Curtin. Alleghany, C,.7 (,,W0 Blair, 445 C50 Lancaster, 3.CuiJ 5,000 Erie, 2,'Jtn 2.300 Dauphin, 1,VC0 1,3 And so we could go through tho whole list, showing that the fight was between tho two wings of the Damocracy on one side, and the Eell everett and Republican party united on the other. Now what en couragement is there in this to the Lincoln men ? In November there will be a Eell ticket in the field which will take off from this Curtin vote at leaat 83.X, tho Fillmoro vote oi iu,-u-aui.s to ooj'ow ueniuu tue xemocricT. .on one of two things will happen between this time and November. Either tho Douglas and Ereckc-nridge party will unito on oe ticket, and the Etll men will vote their own ticket, and thus secure the defeat of j Lincoln ; or the Douglas and Boll men will j : i . 1 t , i ' . ' , r i , r t : ' uiitie, aim ii:ii.ii emuiu liic itc.uaL ot i.iu- coln. Tho latter union is the more proba ble, and is fully foreshadowed by tho roso- lution adopted bv the Bell Convention I 1 - j which met at llarrisburg two weeks ag.o, and formed and electoral ticket, adopting these resolutions: Itcsoh-td, That Messrs. II. M. Fuller, William M. Wright, William Lyon, John Roberts and William P. Seymour, are here- '' a ' of Bell and Everett in Pennsylr.mia, with mthority so to modify tind change the Electoral ticket this dav made as shall best secure the harmonious action of all national me n. Heioh td, That we recommend the hold ing of a Union Stato Mass Convention of all the citizens of Pennsylvania opposed to the Republican organization, at as early a day after the October election as practi cable. Omo. In Ohio, the despatches Eay the Democracy have fully held their own, not withstanding that under a most uaright ous decision of a Republican Court of that State 15,000 negroes were allowed to vote for the first time at this election, and not withstanding a like union took place be tween the Bell men and Republicans. If Bell gets the 2J,000 Fillmore votes of 1850 in Ohio in November, the State taking the election of Tuesday as a basis of calcu lation is hopelessly lost to Lincoln. Immana. In this State the same union exactly as in Pennsylvania existed between J the Bell men and Republicans, in addition j to which the Breckenridge men in a body voted with the Republicans. If these two latter factions support theirown tickets in November, Douglas is sure of the State by 15,000. It was through this perfect union be tween all the factions opposed to the De mocracy that the Republicans gained their late victories. But they are like the frog in the fable, who tenk one jump forward and slid two backward. On Congressmen the union was not so perfect, and accord ingly, amidst all their rejoicing, they have to deplore the loss of at least SIX and perhaps eic.iit Congressmen. As they had, by tight squeezo, but one majority in the last Congress, and by the los3 of these are placed in a hopeless minority in the next, their late victories may well le described as ono jump forward and two backwards.

Groans of the Dying. From the Press and Tribune f Thursday. I.osi of Congressmen. Our fears as regards the loss of Congress men in Pennsylvania and Ohio appear to be realized. Our returns are uot complete, but it is now apparent that wo have lost three in Pennxylvania and three in Ohio. A part of this may be made up in Indiana, where our friends claim a train of ono to three; atid it is possible that Lehman of rhiladolphia, may bo beaten in the offi cial canvass, and thus reduce our loss there by one. A private despatch from Phila delphia claims that we have carried twen ty Districts; but it is not confirmed by la tor intelligence lsst night. We shall learn tho worct to day. "To-day's" (Friday's) PreM and Iribur.t had Dot another word on tho subject, and indeed the telegraph despatches show that there is not only no counterbalancing gain in Indiana, but danger of two more losses in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The Ottawa Martyrs. Our readers have already been advised of the fact that the Ottawa rescuers have received their sentence ia the U. S. District Court at Chicago. Most of our readers remember tha cir cumstances attending the rescue of the) negro Jim. There had been several meet ings in the Court House in Ottawa, at which nil the republican leaders took an active part. When Phillips and the negro Jim arrived in Ottawa a crowd of republi cans met thorn at tho depot At night there were secret meeting, attended by all our republican leaders, and tho whole rescue carefully planued. A few of the bolder ones were put forward to take the brunt of tho matter Lext dav. and hun-: jrfca8 of republicans were to stand around, ! ready to pitch in if necessary. Ilos.ack, the Stouts, and the Kings did their part, resting safe on the promise of being fully backed by their republican brethren. The deed was done, and well done; they were arrested for it, and taken to Chicugo. They were then heroes, and republican sympathy continued to flow out towards them in copious streams. " When brought to trial," says the editor of the Wijuam, who was one of 'em. "Numerous and able counsel eagerly volunteered to defend our cause." They were to be tritd by a republican judge and a republican jury, and every j body thought they would go Scot fre j Alas! however, for these high wrought eTpectatioua. As Judge Trumbull boast- fcJ t p,;oom:nptou: "In tha republican City of Chicago, be- 1, by a jury mostly j rei.ublicau, they were tosvicTtl) by a jury j of law abidins men in the State of 11-1 ) linois." Aii, mat maae a ti.uercnco: success but f.i'.uie is aiwavs a crime. These men had braved tho law and were caught in its mc;hes. Never did sympathy evaporate more rapid- C lv tut iuu in i his case. Tho rescuers were brought up for sentence, and our ll'iyicam friend continues: But on tL day of sentence and legal retribution, liko the day of crucifixion, the faces of sunny eiay friends shone not i in Court, the learned counsellors stood I afar off, and we were loft to tho compan ionship of the stem officers of the Court, and a small crod of gHpi:ig; cool-eved doctors of tho law. Mr. Uossnck had made a speech when about to be sentenced, and as, of all other caters in the country, none had been more jubilant over the offence of which he had bven convicted, and had patted him more lovingly ou the shouldor and spoken more er.coursgiLg and kindly words to him before his trial, than the Press and Tribune; surely now this same Dress it Tribune would eagerly publish his bold and defiant spch. Deacon Coe procures a copy and hastens to the office with it. He presents it to one of the edi tors the same who holds, under this re publican administration the btst office in the State that of Canal Trustee, worth S'JoQO a year. This was the result, in Dea con Coe'a own words. Dr. Ray said, "Tell HOSSACK AXO SlOCT TO GO TO IlELI. THKV in . -,f-iw r At' f Vtv." niuvtrn K ..! AXIL. JL. tUULL J I 1- l .'. i-i.' si- - . Let Mr. C. B. King, editor of the 117;- wam, publish this if ho is honest. He is in tho habit of copying all his abuse of the democrats from the 1'. T., and vouching for it. Will he now say that what tho ed itors of that paper say about Messrs IIcs sack A Stout is tiue or fake, and whether he thinks that sheet is a fit exponent of Republican principles. Our friend Cludiu is indignant Ho pitches into Judge Drummond, denounces his mode ofadministering justice as hideous and tyrannical, equal to the '-implacable spirit of a Jell'erys or the cool malignty of a Wentworth," and be denounces the fu gitive law as repugnant to natural justice, at war with the most cherished principles of constitutional liberty and the noblest sentiments of human nature. But Claudius forgets to tell us that Judge Trumbull, whom he is supporting for re election to the U. S. Senate, says J udge Drummond this Jefferys, Ac. did only his duty; and that Abo Lincoln says the South are entitled to a fugitive slave law, "he is not prepareel toay whether the pre. sent law should be amended." It is a fine thing to abuse Judge Drum mond and the fugitive slave law; but would it not be more manly and honorable at the same time to be consistent and oppose the man who upholds that Judge anel that law, and who denounces those who violate its provisions as "lying, d d skunks 1" More Oppression t The publishers of the Prts Jb Tribune are endeavoring to extort two hundred and forty dollars from John Uossack for publishing the proceedings of his trial " Our pamphlet " probably not having on that occasion proved profitable. This beats Joe Knox. The abolitionists may well exelaim, " save us from our (profess ed) friends 1" Trumbull, Knox, and Pres d- Tribune W booting them I Caji't Go Likcolk.

There have been a number j of cases of sore throat in Ottawa, and a few j deaths, but certainly not a tithe of the : mortality the above would indicate. Tho eliseaso is easily managed if taken in time. The following original " dismalisms" are frefm the Cincinnati Press : Tho first dead head AbcL W'hcn persons aro bent on Matrimony, they are bent double.

Some persons say it is exceedingly easy to get a wife. W o never knew any to get one without trouble. The wickedness of the " softer" sex is shown by the fact that the first word the first woman ever uttered was a-dam (Adam) Bov Shot. On Sunday afternoon a young lad, William Fareis, Was accidentally shot, by the dischar. of a comrad's gun, while out on a pleasute excursion about three miles from this city. The shot lodged in the left thigh, tearing away a large por tion of flesh and leaving a large and ragged wound. We understand from the attend ing physician, Dr. Jtoriarty, that his situa tion is still critical,! though there is every hope of bis speedy recovery. Jl Salh Standard.', , , . . ' , . .'5V .' - Irrsurrectlonary Plot In Virginia. There seems to be an insurrectionary plot fomenting among some of the. negroes in Princess Anne and Norfolk counties, Va. The NorfolK papers of Saturday bring ns various accouuts in regard to tho affair. Tho Argus, of that city says: Several negroes have arrested in Princess Anne, and their confessions, (though in some cases extorted) have developed the same story, and led to further arrests. The confessions show that a rising was contemplated at Hickory Ground, in Not folk county, to-morrow (Sunday) night, and that the matter was instigated by free persons, some of them free negroes. Two arrests have been made in Norfolk city, and the trail is fully struck. Tho citizens of tho two counties have re sorted to vigilant measures to suppress this vile- conspiracy, and to detect all of ft. ndci'5 of all colors. Active patrols havo been organized and gone to work. We ad visa all suspected white persons to quit the parts 'between two days." On Thurs day i.ight a white man named Flynn was shot dead by a patrol party in Norfolk county, on the line of tho canal, about 17 miles from Portsmouth. There were seve ral iiii-u engaged in ditching; and they were camping out in that neighborhood. i I he place was suspected, and their tent : vibited by the patrol for a search.
