Under the guarantee ol your lu tor the organization of 'his Territory, and i consideration of tho privileges which tin law held out to us, we left our fo-iuer hoini met the privations of tn uninhabited Boontl and prepared for adding another republic our Union. The right of civil and religious libcrty lliB right of tU if Kge and sell-governni-i were set up as the beacon lights which bee oncdus on. As freemen we were inviti as freemen we rame, and as treemen woe pected to live. Hut we address you now an outraged and subjugated people, disfru chised and erslaved, stripped ol our deun rights, and governed by a set of masters f eign to our soil, and responsible only lo th own lawless will. One of the Slates of our Union, strong wealth, population and resources, rely: upon her accumulated strength of almost I a century, and taking advantage of our f ble infancy at a people, has invadal our s yitti ttn"1 our riyhu, luhjugated our ten ry, and selected for us our rulers; intending, io, to dictate our laws and Wrt'.c us the tU 6 their will, This limy Mil seem initreott! !lnCI(d!ble thing In the nineteenth century, and in lllh Republican Union the peculiar ami boasted land of liberty and Fc!f govern ment but tho evidence of it as palpable ind til deniable us the fact is bitter and mortify ing. to Uf tind disgraceful to the public. This Invasion of our soil u nd usurpation of 'our rights commenced at tint fir-1 moment Of culling those rights into ac'iun. The first b illot-box thtit was opened upon our virgin soil wns closed to us by overpowering num bers and Impending force. It became, tut what Americans have been proud tq desig nate it, Ihe exponent of the people's will, but wus converted into the swoid ol the oppres sor, to s:ril;o ol civil liberty. S. bold and reckless were our invaders lhat they cared not to conceal their attack. They ratne upon us, not in the uiiis1? of voters, to Ittll away our f-utichise, but bold ly and openly lo snatch it Willi tho strong hind. They came directly from their own homes, and in compact and organized bands, villi urms in hand, and provisions lot the ex pedition, marched to our polls, and when their work was done, returned whence they came. It is unnecessary to enter into Iht complain!; it is enough to say, that in three districts, in which, by the most IrrtfrigiWo evidence, thero were not one hundred a:td li;ty voteis, most of whom refused lo partial putO in this mockery of tho elective Iran 'c!iue, '.hite invaders polled ever a Ikoutand votes. Living Our ci it;try and its IntlitCtloOli wo v. ere w illing, if this was lo be only a tolita ry InttencOiloaufler it in silence, rather than to proclaim to the world that even in this renute epot of our great country, civil liber ly was but a niuno. Hitter and "nournful experience, hat taught us, hows ter, that this was no iso'ulcd act no temporary ebullition ' but (ht co;nmaictmcnt of a tee'l matured ami sctiieil plan'ty U tdrgi j or lion of the people of one of the yur.v of the Viiion , pcrtr.ancitlly to' enslact us and COAltUttte themselves our mas ters, Ontbs30tb of March Uit wo wen again inviiad to tho btlllot-bOX, under the law which we, in common with our fellow citi isna of the States, htdi through your body.1 ienacttd. Our vigilant and . faithful Chief Ifngittrale hud surrounded it with all the guard and precaution with which his au ihoritf Inveated him, and w e were prepared ; to exercise the dearest and most chl rUbed privilege of American citizens, with a full sense ol the vital and interesting importance of this peculiar occasion. The occasion come, end with it came cur invading and self-constituted msttert In thou sands, and With the paraphernalia of war. I They came organized in bund, with officers I and arms and tents, und provisions, and tnu I nitior.s of war, its though they wire March jingupou a foreign foe instead of their own unoffending feliow-citizens. Upon the prin ' cif ul road leading inlo our Territory und pas sing several important polls, they numbered hot lees than twelve hundred men, and one camp ulone contained not less than six bun I di ed. They arrived at their SSVetal destination?: 'the nigl.t bolore the election, and having i pitched their camps and placed their sentries, j waited for the coming day. Baggage wag ons were there, with arms and ammunition I for a protracted fight, and among them two I brass field-pieces, ready charged. They tame j with drumt beat! g and 11 igs flying, and their ' leaders w ere bftbe most prominent and con- I splcuous met of their respective States. In the morning they surrounded thn polls, armed with guns, bowie-knives and revolvers, and ! declared their determination to vote at all haaardt, and in spite of all consequence. If the judges cojld be made to tuhserve their purposes and receive their votes, and it no obstacle was cast in their way, the lead j ers exerted themselves to preserve pea-'e and ! order i.i the conduct of tho election, but at i the same time dijnjt hesitate tn deolare.the jlf not allowed to vote, they would proceed to any extremity in iba destruction of prop erty and life. If control of the polls could 1 not be had otherwise, the judges wer.jby in timidation, and if necessury, by violence, pre . vented'from performing their doty; or, il un yielding in this re spec', were driven I ruin the r post, and the vacancy fllle. Inform - by the persons on lbs ground; ami, whenever, j by any means, they had obtained the control ! of the Hoard, the foreign vote was promiscu- J ouslv poured in, without discrimination or re . serv'c.or '.ho slightest eirort to copceal in ne- ; Carious illegality. At one of these polls, two ol the judg. sla ving manfully stood up in the face ol -ibis ur " ', used mob and declared tl ey would do their i duty, one portion of the mob commenced to - tear down the house, another proceeded to l- break '.n the door of the judges' room, whilst others, with drawn knives, posted lliemselvef f- at iheiwindow, with the proclaimed purpo' of killing any voter l ho would allow himsel 's tobe swore. Votirs were dragged from tilt ' w indow because they would not. show thai J tickets or vote at the dictation of the mob, am lV ; the invaders declared openly at the polls ilia ntby would cut the throats of the judges i II 'hey did not reeeive their votes without re ss quiring OR Oltb a U) tlwir residence, ft Thu room wus finally forced, and the judg tJ es, surrounded by an armed und excitd crowd, were oll'ered the alternatives of resig - nation or death, and live m'nutes wastiiow " ed lor their decision. The ballot box wa !- seized, and ami sh uU of "Hurrah lor Mi 'df souri," was carried into the mtb. The t menaced judges limn left tho ground, togeth as er with ail the resident citizens, except "- tew who acted in the outrage, because tit sl result expected from it conformed lo tho Jtm views, and because it en .bled the few I L'ir rule tho many. When an excess of th foreign force was found lo be had ut ot in sol., detachments were toot to other' wher Bg ii was supposed they might be needed, itlf At the polls adjoining the one above till If" ded to, one of the judges, a minister 'of tl "Mi Gospel, who refused to accede to tho d ft mands of a eimilar sioh oi some four hundr armed and organized men, was driven by vi If lence from his BjSti and the " ucaney" fill by I hernial VCIi Threats and violent demon-) stratious were life, and another elerjiymnn.i for the expression of his opinion, was onsnul lad and beaten. The Inhabitant! ol the l)i--, trict , powerless to resist I he ulnimla lit supply 1 of srms ind 011111111101100,1111' orgtnited pre-1 pafaliOtl and the overwhelming numbers of lliess foreigners, left the polls without vo- ; ling. in the Lawrence District, where wns the largest camp of these invaders, speeches were madl to them by leading residents of Missou ri, in Which it was said that they would cur- . rv their purpose if need be at the point of the ; bayonet und bowie-knife, and one voter was' fired nt. us he win driven from the election pn und. rinding they had a greutcr force : thsn wss necotisry for that poll, some two' hundred men w ere di alled from the number and sent off under their proper officers to I another district aflerwhich they It'll polled from this camp over teven hundred votes. In the fourth ui.d seventh districts, along the Saute Fe road, similar scenes were en-; acted. The invaders cumo together in one armed and organized body, with trains of ' fitly w agons, besides liorsenieii,aud the night I before election pitched their camp in thevi-, unity of the polls, and having appointed their own judges in place 0! those who, from 1 intimidation or otherwise, failed to attend, they v.itcd without any proof of residence. In these two election districts, where the census show one hundred voters, there were polled three hundred and fourteen votes, and last fall Sevan hundred und sixty-live votes, although a large portion of the uctuil real- ; dents did not vote 011 either occasion. In the sixteenth election district, hundreds of men came together as in other cases, cros sing the river; Irani M s ouri the tiny before the election, and encamping together; firm ed and provlslouedi made the fiercest threats against tlie lives ol the judges, and during the night called several times at the houe of one Of them for the purpose of intlmidt'l ling Mm, declaring in the presence of his' wil.', that a repe had been prepared to hang him! and although we ore not prepared to say that these threats would have been car rieJ out, yet they servjJ to produce his re- ' lignation, and give these invaders, in t'.c substitution! control of the polls; snJ on the morning of the election a steamboat brought from the town of Weston, Missouri, to Lea- j v un or h, an accession to their numbers ol leveral hundred more, who returned in the same bout, alter depositing their Votes. There were over nine hundred and fifty votes polled, besides from one hundred to one hun dred ami fifty actual residents who were de terred or discouraged from, voting; while the census returns show hut three hundred and elgVy-Sve votes in the district a month later. Not less than six hundred votes were here given by these non-rostdcntl of Ihe Territory, who voted without being sworn as to their qualification, and immediately after the election returned to il tsouri some of them being incumbents of important ollices there Indeed, so well was the character ol ihis foreign vote understood, that the judges ttruck out of the proscribed form of return ihe words by lawful resident voters." We might continue the list if these sick ening details until the blood of every free man would boil with Indignation, but it is useless! One mora instance alone we will refer to. In the eighteenth election distriot, where the population w as scarce, and no great amount of foreign votes was needed lo over power it, a detachment fr m Missouri, from sixty to one hundred, passed in with a train of wagons, urms and ammunition, making their camp the night before '.he election near Moorestown, tho place of the polls, without even a pretext of residence, and returning immediately to MUsoui I after the work was done, their leader und captain being a ditin ' guUlvtd citizen of Missouri, tiut late the pres sing qjjicer of Iht Senate of the United Statu, j aiid who had boicie-hnife and revolver belted a- round him, apparently ready tajhed the blood 1 of any nun who refuted to be enslaved. All ' those facts we u 0 prepared to establish. If 1 necessary, by proof that would be competent in n court ofjuslice. From a careful examination of the return?, I we are satisfied that over thne thousand i votes were thus cast by the citizens and res ' idents of the States, and that a very large ! portion of the residents were deterred ar dis , couraged from going to the polls. If this j condition of things is allowed to prevail, we j ere reduced lo the stuto of a vassal province, ' am! are governed by the Slate of Missouri. It would be mere ull'eclalion in us to at tempt to dis.iuise the fact that the question of making Itanz is a Free or Slavo State is ; at tho bjttoin ot this movement, and that tho ' men w ho thus Invade our soil und rob us ol our liberties, are from the pro-Slavery men ol Missouri, who are 110 Witling to Bubinit the I question to the people of ihe territory, am abide the compact between the Notth uiu ( South, which the Kutizas-ftebrut-ka bil I con', lins. r1 The compict we want carried out, and b; 1 thr.t test we want the question settled if i t ca;ibe;but there uro few things that Wl F j would not prefer to the domination of Irra sponsible invaders from Missouri. That en aolment is not only a law which Slates un - individuals are bound oobey, but it isacom p ic: between the North und the South lolemn covenant between tho tovereigi - Stales of our Union, which none car. viu le without becoming recreant to tho prin l cip'.e; of honor and justice without the be o Uavul of Confidence rcposcdlvilhout suci - breaking of plighted faith, as in un mdivic1 a i, would load aim to tho earth with si or e and CO (tempt, an I drivo him from the BOO i,ttj ul honest men. The bill which Norther o statesmen bucked with Northern men, hi e obtained lof southern rights, is mude.by mc 10 who invade oor toil, the very instrument ft e ; depriving us of our dearest privileges, ai stubbing" 10 tht heart those who, Utgnan '- inously"gave it into their hands for oth 10 1 ends. e-j This bil! is mado to metn popular sovt ed eignly for them serfdom for us. The dc o- trine of self-government is to be Irampl cd nndur foot here, of a'l other places in t world, and on the very pot which hod been ' hallowed and consecrated lo its most signal Vindication The alton which hid been retred to it on Ibis chosen ground, and round which, at least, the Democracy of the whole Union bad stvotn SlleglshCf, Snd to which we had rome as pilgrim worshipers in the wilderness, ire to be ruthlessly de. moliahad, The compict is to he basely bro ken, and the ballot ol ihe freemen ( in effect ; lorn from our hands almost before the ink of Ihe covenant is dry. Not only, too, It the principle of popular sovereignty tube blotted out, but more than this, even the object of fie contest is to disappear. The question of negro shivery is to s nk into insignificance, und the great portentous issue is to loom up in its stead, whether or not vie shall bi the slaves, and fsnstict wli3 disgrace the honor able and chivalric men of the South, shall he our masters to rule is at their pleasure. With a feeble und scattered Community, just struggling into existence, without orga nization and almost w ithout shelter, we are powerless to resist on old, strong and popn-' h us St-ile, full of m"n,(ind arms, nn-1 resour ces, and we tlnrefoie sppeal In you, and through you to the people of the States. Remedy lu re we have none. Our Executive its. with manly determine 1 lion and pettistent fidelity, stood by bis peo ple, and endeavored to carry out the princi ples of popular Sovereignty, and secure us ihe privilege of managing our own hfl'airs and governing ourselves, until iiis reputation 1 lias been u?suilcd and his life openly threat ened with a bitterness almost unpurallrlodr and, although as chief mag'-: rate In; I 111 wc rou It' desire, and has fcurVts'y pursued the path of duty amid a storm 11 nu n.ee and detraction under w hich many nn-n w uu d h re quailed, yet ho is powerless like ourselves ' We make, now, this lust appe I, not lu I the North, not to the South; not to any po litical party but to the representatives of the whole Union We beg that no men will sport with our fearful condition, by endea voring to make political capital, or build up parly ut the expense of our civil and physical existence. We want the men of the North m.d the South to protect us. Through your selves, their representatives, we appeal to their honor tj their justice to their patri otism to heir sympathies, not lor favois, but for rights not for trivial rights, but (oi the dearest right guaranteed tout by the Declaration of Independence by ihe Con ttitution of the Union by the law of our or ganization by tho solemn compact of the Slates, and which you pledged lo us as Uic condition of our Coming here. Communities are nut to blame for the con duct ol their fanatics unless tiny suncl on I hem. We cunuol beiieve that ihe Slates of the S nith will sanction the outrages that have been er,iotrated upon 11-, or will al.'o.v them to be continued. And although we j might reason the matter as a question of poll : ey, and show teat it is contrary to 1 lie laws of nature and society, and opposed to all hu ' man experience, that good con come from j such an evil although we might prove that it is "sowing the w ind to reap the w hirlwind,' and t'at the reaction will be fearful, yet we feel that ibis it unnecessary that it is enough to appeal lo their honor and their sense of justice, Olid to rely upon their pligh ted faith. i Inside our bounds we shall have no serious I troubles.

From foreign op pression, however, we ask for relief of that power which passed the K in sat bill, and pledged to us its benefits if we Would Come here. We have a right lo Itk and do Ilk I it enforcement. Itremalni for your honor j able bodies to decide win ther you will keep I the compact between you and us which exists by that bill, and on emigration whether yuu will vindicate the sacred doctrines of the Government, or whether you will leave us in a state of vaticllge and oppression.

As hud been the long established practice I O'Hara always attended the guard muuntini : parade on the sands, ul six or eeveii o'clo:l j in the morning: und he took so much noiici ' i of the officers of the several guards that In 1 could generally, during the remainder of tin 3 day, name them all. One day he wus pro Deeding out of South Port in his carriage when be passed an officer g- ing Inlo towr und whom, at the instant, he remembered u having passed in review before him thai mot U ning, as C immaoding the south guard.
