An op ponent "endowed with that courage and manly independence which alone cbaract ' rrise the truly great and good; which en able man to throw off the shackles of par ty prejudice and reason lor himself. With . auch spirit we find ao desire to depart from the true issue, or at least to shun an honest maintainance of t'ie convictions of truth. But in meeting the self-styled Dem ocracy .we are forced to the conclusion that . they are none of these. On the contrary we find them avoiding all the true issues of the day, and seeking to defend themselves od malign their opponents through appear. , ing in false colors, and in attributing to . their opponents principles which they have never upheld. And why is ill Why do the Democracy continually harp about the ' Republicans going to set the slaves all free . and Bate them our equals in privilege Why is it they talk of intermarriage of the races as the object of ths Republican party! How have they the face to do this, when none ether than the self-styled Deniociacv . are practically maintaining this principle!- How many of the Detnocractic voters o! the South have no relations among the colored race And j et they have the braz?n . faced audacity continue !y to prate about Re- publican proclivity to amalgamation. 1 There is bnt one way to account for this; nd that is on the grounds of their conscious weakness. We might as well try :o c! oke muttering thunders, or even to stun the sure progress or the Republican party, as to hold the Democracy for a doy to the true issue. The Di mocracy of the North par ticularly never have, individually or as a " party met the opposition on what was really the issue. As a party they have shown the most cringing obedience to party, and party leaders. They have never stood up manful ly to defend the principles of their party Tbey can not do it. They iare not do it " They talk about the sovereign rights of the people and at the same timeui der the acred kine of the Constitution they snatch from the States tbe dearest r'ghts of man. They talk of being followers of Jeffersuk, ant at the came time repudiate him in their . practice. They have parted from the in struction of their founders, yet under the ir name they eek to deceive the people, and carrv out their villianous designs. Say what you will and there is but one conriu eion; the party is a mere tool of the pro- a! every interests of thfa country and the time is, coming when the people of the party will see the error and drop the vile thing to rot and its ltiathaome exintancc en same lew slave dens of the S nth. e do not blame the IH-moeratic papers ' of the North for avoiding an honest Usue, fur while ever they bear the name f Dem- - oerat they will at least have to give the - semblance of support to all the arts, and II the principles or the party. This of itself is au indication of its weakness. In all we plainly see the conviction of the power ol the truth to which they are oppos ed. They know full well the force of the - truths we advocate, and the only argum;-nt they bring is slang, the only plan is to avoid. In all this e near an under voice speaking iilninr lhftn words can tell, tbe di&nositiuit f - , of the people. The) have born it lung and cow me rising mats enrs lur "Room! for men of mii:d make way!

A Spiritual Convention was held at Ravenna, Portage county, Ohio, on the 4th and 5th inst. Mrs. Lewis, ol . Cleveland, is reported te have made the fol lowing' remarks: She was in favor of universal freedom nd that loving whomsoever she chose was part of that freedom, and te confine her to love one man was an abridgement of her rights. She said that "although she had a husband in Cleveland, she considered her k self married to the whole Human race. All - wen were ber hnebandsnd she had an un dying love fortbem." She said also, that . "what business is it to the world whether ote man is the father of my children, or teti meat I have the right to say who thall be tbe lather of my offspring. SPEECH SPEECH OF SENATOR TRUMBULL. [CONCLUDED.] hie residence in this country? He is ert air.lv ict a citizen of tii Unite State be fore nut":l;za;if r, and according t Judjre Taney cecifion, iniiorsod by the sei!-sty!eJ Democracy, that the prant of citizenship carries with it the right to marry and other personal as weil ar political rights, does ii not uecrs.-arily follow that a denial of citi zenship is a denii-l of those rights! The idea tbit a negro cannot sue in a United Slates Court, bee use to a! V. Mm to : so would necep py ColiJj 'II lino aj. ut i:!l'B TTaiid rVfiirPiy of the 'white mar, Jte iaeu 'women and children and even Cor- po ationa enjoy tha p-iviiege without any fui.h consequences f"l!owin?, is to my vie absurd; and yet this is the only reason given for I he extraordinary decision that a n"gro cann'it sue in a Federal Court. This how ever has been d.-ridtd by the sectional ma jority cl 'be Court anJ in that case it is the law, though I 'rust it will never be repented in unother. Having disposed of the case by deciding that the Court had no jurisdiction to act upon it. Jndje Taney next proceeds to inquire into the Constitutionality of the M esjuri Compromise, and the power ol Congre.s to a.-quire and govcr.i the Terri tories. He 8i;y3: The power to acquire r.ecesstrily carries with it tho power to preserve and apply to the purposes for which it was acquired. The form of the government to be established necessarily rested in the discretion of Con press, acting within the scope of its consti tutional authority. It was their duty to es tablish the one that would be best suited fur the protection and security of the citizens of the United Slates and other inhabitants who might be tutborized to take up their abode there. What is the best form must always depend on the fonJit;on of trie Territory at the time and the choice of the mode most depend upon the ex-rci of a discretionary power by Congress.acting w iihin the scope ot its constitutional author ity. It was ecquired by the exercise of this discretion, and it must be held and governed in like manner until it is 6tted to be a State.' This psrt of the opinion is very jood Re publican doctrine, but it is utterly inconsis tent with the 'great pr nciple of popular sovere:enty and self government' of which we have heard so much. In another jart of the opinion the JuiIlc abandons the sound doctrine he bad previi usly enunciated, and tnni unces it as the opinion o' the Court tliRt 'the right of property in a slave is dis tinctly and eipress'y affirmed in the Const' tutioti,' and that every citizen has a right to take with kirn into the Territory any ar tic.e of property which the Constitution of the United States recognized as property, and Congress has no newer to deprive a per son of this rieht, i.or could it authorize a Territorial Ixovernmnt to exercise it. Mas! for pt-pular sovereignty and self government in a Territory, it i not eq'ial tj allowing the TerritorialLegis!ulure power to protect the people against the introduction of Negro Slavery. Whatever o: her rights of self-gov eminent the people of the Territory of Kan sas may have, tha right to keep Slavery out is not one of them, according to his opin ion Still, there are those who insist that, while the right to hold elavea continues in a Territory, a nd can not be divested or alien ated, it 'is a barren and worthless right, un less sustained, protected and enforced by appropriate police re-;ulai ions and local Ieis 1st ion, prescribing adequate remedies for its violation. These regulations and reme dies must' necessarily depend entirely upon the will and wishes of the people of the Ter ritory, as they can only be prescribed by the local Legislatures. Hence, the great principle of popular sovereignty and self- government is sustained and firmly estab lished bv this decision.' According to this argument, self government consists in no being compel ed to pass police laws tor thej government of negro slaves.whose presence there is n3 pow er to prohibit; or," rather, the decis on that a people have no power to ex tinguish SlaverVjeotablishes the great prin ciple ot theii sovereignty and self-government! What a glorious principle this is.as thus expounded! What an inestimable priv ilege to allow a people to have negro slaves introduced into tbeir midst, without compel ling them to pass police lanj for their gov ernment! A precious right, indeed, to be allowed to permit negro slaves to run at large, uncontrolled by local legislation! And to this has 'the great principle of popular soveteignty and self-government' come at last, according to one of the mid-wives who first brought forth this political monstrosity, as applicable to a Territory. Judge Taney, in his opinion, says that the Constitu'ion 'makes it the duty of the Government to protevt it' slave property; but the lesser lights of the self-sty ied Democ racy, who indorse the opinion and are great sticklers for performing all their constitu tion) o! ijhtk'ns.antl p.Tl'Cular'y in regard to slaves, say tiut this protection depends upon the wi.il ofthe poeple of the Territor ies, aciitig through their Territorial Lgila ture. Here is a direct intimation th.it the people of aTerri'ory have the rijiht to disre gard their cins'iiutional obligations, and muke ti e riijiit to hold slaves 'a barren and worthless right' wiajjut local protection. Where are the Union-savers, that they do not cry aloud at the promulgation of such a heresy as this! Why the attempt to lei loose a necro slave, i lew years ago, in the city of lio.-ton, cause near dissolving the Uuien. according to tnese self-same political doctors, who woin i i.ow let loose all the negro slaves in a w ho'e .Territory, Icavius the'r master I ut 'a barren and uorliiltss rigiit to them. For my part, if comp iled to hve nejrr slaves in the community in winch I live. I should greatly preler havii g proper police regulations lor their government ;mid ( ques tion if slave holers will thank one of iheir co-laborers for intimating thai they are not entitled to such protection. Tbe most monstrous propo.-it on put forth by the sectional mj"nty in this opinion, is that w hich asserts that -the right ot prop erty in a slave is distinctly and 'expressly affirmed in the Constitution.' No such clause ran be lound in that iiist ument. The woid "t-li.ve' is not in the Constitution, nor is there cny provision in it.express or other wise, ( fGrnimg properly in man. The uiusi which can be said is. that the Constitution, dots not prevent 'persons' being held to ser vice or labor in a S'.ate, 'under the laws thereof.' But for this clause, it would be entirely competent for each State into which a person owing service in another should escape, to d is. barge him therefrom, and so the Supreme Courtof the United Stales expressly decided in the case olPrigg agt. The Ci-miiionwealih, of Pennsylvania. lithe right of property in a slave is ex pressly affirmed by the Constitution of the Uuitca States, why was provision made for the surrender or only such persons as were held to service or labor in one State, 'under the lavs thereof I' Why must they be held under the laws of a State, if the Constitu tion affirms property in them! The assump tion of the sectional Judges as to what is in tie Constitution being untrue, the argu ment drawn from it, that what the Consti tution recognizes as property any citizen has a right to tuke wilh him and hold in the Territories, and that neither Congress nor Territorial Lesi'a,t,rc haa poweMo deprive I him of this right, must be unsound also I true.it would nationa'ize Slavery throughout the Union; lor a citizen must necessarily have the same right to go with that which is affirmed to be property by the Constitution of the United States, into a Stste as into a Territory. i I utterly repudiate this extra-judicial.sec-ti"nal opinion, so f.ir as it undertakes to legitimatize Slavery in the Territories o: the United Slates, and denies the power of the people thereof, acting with the assent of Congress, and of Congress itself, to ex clude Slavery while the territorial condition continues. Such doctrines are at war with the Constitution, which confers on Congress authority to nuke all need'ul rules and regu latiji.s ret uectins the Territories, snbver- five o; the principled sei -joverninni,: destructive to the righ s of i !re people; , and from the tribunal w hich has undertaken ! 0 establ;sh them.I appeiil to a power iiigli- j er and above even this Court of last resort,; whose name is 'The People,' and w ho will. ! 1 trust, indue time reform this sectional ' Court by increasing the number of Jj'gs.; or otherwise p!aeit;g upan the beu.'h a fair j proportion of Northern members. j Feliow-cit:z?ns, I have endeavored to j place before yr,u the Repu1 licati creed as it It uas fie creed of the men who; arhieved our independence and framed our Government What fault have you to find with it! Our political opDe-nen's find none, save they deny the just authority of Con gress over the Territories.as I have attemp ted tn slio-.v. They falsely attribute to us sentiments we do nut entertain, and make war upon them, thus paying an unw illing tribute U the correctness of our principles, which they would have no occasion to mis represent if the truth would seive them as well. Why then will you not, one ond all, rally with the Republican party and rescue the country from the peril into whicli the action of the self-styled Democracy has brought it! I have pointed out to you some of the dif ferences between t'ie professions and pre tenses of that party ;hive shown you that in the name ofthe Constitution they have set at naught its most sacred provisions; that professing devotion to the Union they have brought it to the brink of dissolution; that in the name of self-government they have in one part ofthe Republic suffered the peo ple to be deprived of that inestimable right, and are now engaged in attempting to force upon them by the aid of Federal officers and troops a government against their a ill;thnt they are banded together for supremacy ,nnil making the extension ol African Slavery the grand object and end o! the Government; excluding from a!! participation in its affairs, wherever they have the power, all men who do not acknowledge the nationality ot Sla very and its legitimate exi tencein the Tirritorie of tlie United St .tes; that hav ing control of thJ Federal Governtiient.wilh .ts immense power and patronage, ihey have wrung from a sectional Court an opinion at war wi;h ts former decision the former practice ofthe G 'vernmeiit and the Consti tution and which if assented to and car ried into effect must sprca I Slaiery over the win le Union. Now is the time peaceably to arrest the carrying oil, thos principles which are fast undermining the Constiiutiun.and most soon wholly subvert it if permitted to go on It will not do to wail till the despotism is fas tened upon us. We may learn experience from our friends in Kansas in this respect. The people now there would have no diffi culty in asserting their rights but f r the despotism already established. The previous action of an uu.-p.ng L-gi-ilntiire is now miid- the excusa for using the wh ile power or the reaerai iio-,nn-tii i coforciiu4 enactments, and it is a d m u t prob'em to determine how the pe-'ple by pe u efui hi.mii-' till the Republican party takes posse.-sion of the Government, are to extricate them selves troin the political thraldom under which they no.v labor. Who believes that a single Territorial official in Kansas could hold his place for a day. if the voice of the people of that Territory could be justlv heard! Being uuable to resist the first en croachments upon their rights when their invaders drove them from the polls and elec ted officers lo rule over them, the opportu nity, now they have the ability to protect themselves if afforded a fair chance, has passed away. All history, as well as that of Kansas, warns us that a people who would preserve their liberties must resist the first encroachments upon them. The people of the United States have stood by and seen the people or Kansas subjugated. Ti e same power which perpetrated, that great wrong is continually and not slowly making encroachments upon your rights. I warn you not to wait till, like the people of Kansas, the tetters are upon you; till the doctrine enunciated by the Supreme Court is carried into practical effect, and Slavery is established in every State of the Union. The peaceful remedy is now through tie ballot-box. The South is united as one man for upholding the supremacy of the Slave Power in tiie Government, but, un aided by tbe North.they can do noihing.and Slavery will sink back to a local Southern institution, as it was con-idcred by all par ties prior lo 1854. Are the rights of white men less sacred, or is Free lorn less dear, that the North refuses to unit0 to sustain them! Or is ii because of the love of power, and through the influence ofthe ten thous and Federal cfficers feeding upon the Trea sury pap, and bunded together for their own aggrandizement, th it the Nort'i is divided? jfwe wuuld change the existing state of things, we must begin at home, and dismiss from the public councils the Northern men who, from ambitious or other inotives.-iiluiin-isler to the nnrnoses of Sl.-teerv. ine Acw-iork Uag bmk.n leaning oryan' ... me MM.-s.yieu i. u.oe.rdcy.m a n.te issue.

From t'liis State emanated the measure which, in its consequences, has led to a change in the policy of the government, to many viola tions of law and the Constitution, to many murders and outrages, to the nationaliza tion or Slavery, its spread into territory once dedicated to Freedom, and which now I commuted me insiances iu which me popuiar will unl the riht of a people to sei -government have been violuted, and the perils into w hich the Union has been brought wiihin the l-t tour year--, n I I !y the notion of that party which protess the utino.-l devotion to the Constitution, to the Union, to law and order, to the principle ot popular sovereignty and self-government, anJ even has tiie effrontery to style itself the Democratic p rty !

FROM THE NORTH-WEST. Correspondence of the Belmont Chronicle. LAKE PEPIN, July 3d, 1857. Ma. Tiiobubs: This morning the sonnd of ihe gong to prepare for breakfast aroused me from my slumbers; upon dressing aud going out to the wash-room, I found that we were in Lake Pepin, at Central Point) discharging some freight, and that while 1 had been sleeping the steamer had brought me safely to new scenes. About this Like there are some bluffs, and the celebrated Maiden Rock is on its shore, said to befou nunjreu teei nign. itie lune noes not ap pear to be u ide, but to n,e seemed more like the natural river, clear or Islands; it :s, how ever, a n enlargement ot the river. Hi( blefi's now begin to disappear, and some fine bottoms are to be seen. Upon leaving the Lake the Islands are not so numerou as below, and the river looks more like river.

We are now neariug St. Paul, the place near the clouds. The day is line, the sun shines brightly, objects of interest are to be seen along the bunks ot the river. At last within three or four miles we catch glimpse of the city, it is soon out of eiuht again; onward the engines pus-h the bout. lashing the river into waves. On the for ward deck we take our stand, -o, n we make a roundit g in the river, and the city stands spread out before us, rising Iron, the water at first abrupt, ami then gently Icr a mile or more back, with the greater part that is now i - . . i r .1 .i ouiii to ue seen irom me river, rtearini' the wharf and casting our eye a little to the right, is to be seen probably a hundred Irish shanties, near the river; these people have found out th,.t Railroads are to be built here, We land our boat is fastened the shaiki from the shore, with omnibuses, hacks, car- risges, drays, baggage wagons, porters agents, etc., raise a perfect uproar, with "First Clas lioiel," "This wav the Fuller House," This way to the Wiuslow," -Ho for the American," "Good boarding lor only ttvo dollars a day," "Passengers for St. Anthony, come this way," "Tickets, gen tleinen, tickets." ".Any baggage to carry sir; I can take you to a first rate hotel." One crowd rushing off the boat, anotheron; some failing into the river, all commotion &c. Wailing un'il the thickest of the crowd had left, and leaving my baguage in charge of the porter oi Ike boat, 1 stepped a.-hore; saw my Iriend, the ciergyman, who pointed ut to me bt.

The mutiny in India was spreading. Twenty-three regiments joined but were de feated outside of Delhe, but still held the city. Gen. A neon, Commander in chief, died ol Cholera. Sir Colin Campbell suc ceeds hi in. News from China is unimportant. Liverpool, July 15, 1 o'clock P. JI. Sales of Cotton to-day estimated at 10,000 bales. The market closes steady.

An ailress lias been presented to tlie Queen, praying lier to use every means to suppress the slave trade, then by securinr the fulfillment of fxifctitijv trea'ies. Lord Palmerston pledged the Government tu car ry out their request. Liverpool. The Chamber of Commerce rave a grand banquet tu the officers of the Niagara. Latest advices from Delhi state the heights aroun the town are in the posses sion of government troops who attacked am! Jrove down the rebels wit tin the walls, cap turinr twenty-six f;uns. The steamship Erin, from Bombay, with China mails, was wrec'-ed on the coast of Ceylon on the tth of June. The passengers, mails and specie were saved. Ihe cargo. valued at a million dollars, was a total loss. Details of n recently discovered conspira cy show it tii be tho most serious yet disco vered. Mazzini is 'llegc I to have escaped in a ship currying the flags. The Duke was looked lor hourly when the India mail left. Che loss to the Bengal army consequent upon the meeting is estimated at thirty thousand men. It is believed the crisis has passed. The latest advicea indicate a pan ic and desertion among the troops. The In surgents are acting vigorously. bir Colon Campbell has startej for China in the frig ate San Jacinto.
