Until that time arrives I have thought proper, as IJneenni spain.ano after due deliberation and sonnd advice, to 1 seek In the State of an august ally the so.

While setting foot on a foreign soil, my heart and eyes tnrned toward that which Is the land or my birth and that of my children, I hasten to frame mv explicit and formal protest before tmd and before mar kind, declaring that the ftirce to which I yinld in leaving my king dom cannot Invalidate my rights, nor lessen nor romuromlse them in anv way. Neither can tl ose rights be aft", cted in any way by Ibe aet of a Revolutionary Government ; ar d still less by the regal .lions of its assem. biles, which must, needs b formed under the pressure of demagogic fury, and under the obvious condition" of violence as regards the conscience and will of the peop'e. Our fathers maintained a protracted hut suc cessful struggle for the religions faith and the Independence of Spain. Th present generation has unceasingly toiled to connect all that was great, and glo rious tn past ages with what, modern times contain that is sonnd and fruitful.

If you think that the crown of Spain, worn by a Queen whosn fortune It has heen to connect her name with the social and political re generation of the State, be the symbol of thrs sonnrl principles, yon will, as I hope, remain faithful to your oaths and to your creed you will allow to pass away as a scourge the revolutionary vortex, in which ingratitude, felonv.and ambition jotlo each I other vou will live In the assurance that even in the hour of mlsftirtune I shall omit nothing tn uphold that symbol, apart from which Spun has not a single endearing re. collection, not asingle sustaining hope. The Insane pride of a few Is for a time upsetting gmn niairncting me wnoie nation, inniwnn men's souls into a state ot contusion and H-iety info a state nf anarchy. There Is not room In rov heart Tor natren even against that small nnmher, I should fear lest any feeling of jietty resentment should weaken the feeling of deep tenderness I entertain toward thi loyal men who have risked their Uvea and shed their blood In defense of the throne and public order, and toward all those Spaniards who witnesg wltn griet and terror a triumphant Insurrection a sham, fnt psge in the history ot our eivillza. tion.

Forsyth's Indiana Fight Inter esttriff Description of It. Tbe Philadelphia North American prints a letter dated at jort Wallace, Kansas, Oc tober 1st, from Liuut Col, Carpenter, wno went to the relief of Col. Forrest, when re cently attacked and surrounded by Indiir.s upou an island tn "Bob Tail Creek." First describing bis search after Forsyth's party, its exact whereaboitis being unknown, and on their arrival In the vicinity of the creek, ne proceeds to say : In tbe centre of ibe creek I observed a little grassy place or Island, with a few trees on tt, and some objects which appear ed to be moving. The guide pointed to. wtrds them and assured us they were Fbr syth'g men We instantly rnhed foaward, and on nearing the place were received by the whole party wiih loud cheers. I threw up my cap and s outed, and never felt more excited in my life. These men, In this out. ol-the way place, seemed to me like a party on a wide ocean, for they certainly were as helpless. Tho Indians first appeared on the 17ih, early in i tie morning, when they were en ca npud on the side of the creek a parly of about ttttcen attempting to run atT their homes, Forsyth had boen following a trail lor several days, arid finally was led lute this wild tonuiry by it. The sigog became more frequent and fresh, and the most e perienced men with him predicted that they would souu lall upon a large village. Wheu the Indians ran off the four or Ave bead o' slock on the morning of the 17th, an old scout, named Sharp, iustantly shouted th tt e Indians would soon appear in force and advised them to proceed to a 1 tile grassy island in the centre of the dry bed. For. sjth ordered them there, and they tied their horses to a few scanty scrubs near by. In aliout five minutes a very large force of In dians were seen moving down the creek by a luvine about a half a mile distant, and some also appeared on ravine behind. The shout was rained to dig in the sand and get under cover. Every man dug for his life using niigers, spmg and knives. B lore they go; pfoteouon, however, the Indians charg ed lhvm ',out 0I lr"K- meof the W:.r nois com iu within a fow feet in the most eckiesa maimer. A i l.'se tire with breech-loaders cansed a umber to fall from their horses, dead and wouiiaua, ana forced the rest to turn back This gave the party time to dig their hob s eeper. Two uieu were killed about this m-. r orsvth was shot in the right th'eh. nesn wound, and Immediately alter In the leg, breaking the bono. Grover, oni of the scouts, gallantly exposed himself in digging cover tor (orsvth. go a g to get h m away irom um nails, ihesoiiawa c large num. n-rs auoearen on ma HUB around, g'ng'ng oogs, laughiug, and smoking pipes, evident. iy lor tue purpose of see iib the warr ora take tbe scalps. A Chevenne chief har angued the warriors within hearing, and uniiersioia ny one of the scouts to tell 18 inaiaus that these men had dared to come into their country and to disturb their peace ; mat they were few and tbe Indians many, and that they must go In boldly and awl meir scaips. A nig medicine man annnared about five undred yards distant. nd shaking his hhA. tn Rfiiim thm nf their safety from bullets, by his charms. i.d mourn, mus ma need to do their pest, barged aguin and again, only to loose large Ullioers. About two hundred then dis mounted aud crept along ravines and nn der cover to within good rifle range, and kept up a constant fire whenever any one raised hand or foot. Lieut. Bucher was mortally w0nded i the back, and the snr Heori, Dr. i,.nra .hot. it,rnr,.h t, h,l bvery ciffi.. tiller! op wnnnrleri. and about 8-u.... mil of flfttr nf the men 1118 "liana drew o(T after dark with the main b..,j nnt iefY enough to harrasg them ?'8nt.

Several of the men told me that they were unable, for the last twenty-fonr hours, to kenn It on their stomachs. Yon can imagine the delight they manifested on the arrival or onr party, i orsvth looK me by the hand and seemed quite affected. lie told me that it geemed fated that we should meet In places out of the way and far apart. Ho and two other badly wound ed men were lrlng in a sonars hole scoop ed ont In the sand, within a few feet of their dead horses, whirl) lay around them in a seml-clrcle, and Itnprepnated tha air with a terrible stench. I immediately selected a place near bv and had several tents erected, tbe wound. ed men carried over, and tha res', remov. ed to a more salubrious air. Three dead Indians were burled by them, but oy thirty others were killed, and carrr'ed away by their comrades, and ahi ejt seventy ounded. The savages were evidently badly demoralized, and the fight Is con s'dered to he one of the most desperate In the annals of our Indian wars.

It Is a clear case that if a const), tutlon prescribes the qualifications of rotors it prescribes" aii of tho qualifications t and that if the Legislature demands that an oath be added to these qualification", it exceeds Its powers and usurps the fnnctions of a constitutional convention. So as to the oath now required of members of Con gress and ( fllceis of the governments. State and national. The Federal Constitution not only enumerates the qualifications of members of Congress, hut states tbe oath that shall be tskeu by tbe officers- named. When, therefore, Congress took It npon itself to prescribe a new and a different oath, It usurped powers nut belonging to It, and violated that very Constitution which It proteased to desire to protect. It In ef fect revised tbe work of the fraraers of the Constitution, and edderto that instrument a new section which had not heen proposed or ratifw-d in the manner which the Consti tution itself declares is the only one in which the organic law can bo altered or amended.

Kyle, of Kogersville, E. Tenn., npon tbe great political issues that so constantly sgitate tbe public saind at tha present day. Cut. Kyle is one of she champions of con. servatism, aud is one of tbe Democratic Electors tor lue ott upon the boymoor aud Blair ticket. Wo will not attempt to give you his speech in detail, but merely bis leading points, constituting tne points at Issue between the two great political par. ties of the nation. Cul. Kyle took tbe ground that the Radical party had proved false to every position tbey bad taken, before d us ing and since tbe war, that tbey bad da. eeiwed the public mind as to the time aa. jects fur which tbe war was prosecuted. He was one of those unswerving oonstltn. tional union men, trom the beginning to tha end. of the war, and wben the question of emancipation came up he chose to quietly part with his negroes than to sever bis con nection with, what was then, a great and good government. But be took the ground that no government had auy right to lake trom blm, or auy other man, their negroea without compensation, lie took the giound that the Radical party had wandered Irom ibe home uf truth and duty, and that they have done all to secure party ends and pur. puses. Be said, -Tbo Congress of the United States bad no right to go Into any of tbe states and there interfere with tbe elective franchise. That this Radical party bad no right by any third of legislation to take the ballot irom the respectable white man ant. give it to the Ignorant negroes. In order to secure party ends. But that this was tbe only way that they could coutiuue iu pow er, That tbey was alraid to let the white man to tbe ballot box, lor fear they would waut a division ol tbe otnees." He said that tha leadiug men of (the Rad ical party were in favor of giving the ballot lo every man (wbito.) He then gave bla courae tbrougn tbe war, and expressed beautifully bis sympathy with tbe negro, and said be had alwaya'been friendly tu them, and believed tbey ought, of right, to bave guaranteed to them protection under the laws ol our couulry, but that be Was opposed to giving him tbe ballot. Ue ar. raigned the Radical parly for acting treach. eroualy with th negro, and inquired "If auy man bad ever heard ot tbe Radical pgr. ty inviting the negro to share tbe fctttces. with them r" . Ue says, "none t f the states ever were ont of thc onion," aud establishes that position by two court decisions. Ouc of tbe Su. preme Court of Tenuessee, 3d Caldwell's Reports si.d auother, tbe holding of Chief Justice Chase in the United Stales Court in North Carolina. That ail ibe Radical plan uf reconstruction was nucunalltutioual, caning the people of tbe United States al most conutleHS millions ol dollars, all to se. cure themselves tu office, ' lie says he i decidedly in favor of the. enormous public debt being paid in green backs, That the 6.20s constitute the larg est purtiuu uf the debt, aud that the tuoutiyv that was loaned tu tne government was. nothing but grsaubacks, and was at the time tweuty-five per ceut. uuder par. That tbe same money now, enhauced in value,, ought to p.'7 tbe debt. He spoke freely of the recent elections that bave come otf In the States uf Obiu, Indiana aud Pennsylva nia aud takes the ground that the Demoo. racy have much to euunurage tbem, having reduced ihe Uadioal maijoiity of last year which was niuety tbouaud, tu fifteen tbou sand Ibis year.
