WEDNESDAY, JULY 3. 1861.
It often happens that the greatest
events are brought ahout by causes
which the wisdom of men do not forsee
or understand. The wisdom of Provi
dence in guiding the affairs of the world
is usually hidden from men, so that
while they are carrying out the pur
poses of the Most High, they arc in
entire ignorance of the ends they are
accomplishing for the weal of mankind;
for all things designed by the great
Ruler of evenls.ultimalely tend to bless
and benefit the human race, however
"dark and mysterious" to the short
sighted wisdom of men they may ap
pear whil6 being enacted.
When, in the "fullness of time," the
period for the great Reformation which
commenced in the latter part of the
first quarter of the sixteenth century
had arrived, and the days of the "Ini
quity tbatworketli abominations" were
to be numbered, God opened the way
for the dispersion of the thick daikness
which overspread the world as a dense
cloud bymeans almost unknown to
men. In her arrogance, the Romish
Hierarchy went forth to do "whatso
ever she pleased," and her indulgences
were sold as common marketing in the
streets or as a huckster would dispose
of his merchandise in his stall or at his
stand. They were advertised for sale,
and rich were compelled to buy them
or suffer the fires of purgatory or hell,
or both. Thus were men induced to
sin, because they could purchase abso
lution from the hands of the priest.
And the indulgence venders became so
presumptuous as to grant pardons in
advance of all the sins a man should
eomait in the next six months or twelve
months, no matter how great their
terpitude, whether murder, theft, rob
bery, perjury or what else dark and
damnable a villian might plan for re
venge or Iincestiousness! Armed with
a free and full pardon from the priest,
which he had been taught to resard as
of the utmost value, aud entirely valid
in the court of heaven, the man had no
restraint in carrying out the evil incli
aations of his heart.
An obscure monk, the son of poor
parents, saw the enormity of this crime
on the part of Pope and priests, and
enounced it in strong terms. But
Luther bad no intention of fighting
the Pope. On the contrary he at first
defended him, and charged the indul
gence pedlars with the courrupt prac
tice condemned. But without his own
knowledge of the fact, God was leading
this unknown monk to the light, that
he might become the instrument of the
great work which He had to accom
plish through the instrumentality of
me. Step by step Luther w as led on,
until at last his eyes were fully opened.
He stood up before the princes, priests
- aad potentates at Worms, a hero such
as the world had not produced for cen
turies. But it seemed a small thing at first
that be should denounce Tetrel and his
indulgences, and he a small instrument
io accomplish lh mighty work of God.
But he measured arms with the Pope,
and came off victor -et not he, hut
God who used him. The darkness of
Ihe thousand years of superstition and
misrule in Church and State was scat
tered and the sun of Truth once more
Seamed upon the world.
So when this New World was to be
peopled with the men who were to give
chancier to its institutions and become
the pioneers to a new Canaan for hu
manity. Heaven made use of the wick
edness of man to accomplish his pur
poses. It was apparently a small thing
for the haughty Elizabeth of England,
who wMied to be a kind of Pope of
Protestantism, to banish John Robin
sou and his small congregation of poor
but sincere worshipers, after hanging
two pastors in the mast brutal manner.
But Go was leading this little band to
a-uoble destiny. It was a- happy day
for America when at Delft Haven, the
mall party went on board the Speed
well to sail for their new home, while
Robinson, who had exhorted and coun
seled with them all night, knell on the
sand of the beech and with uplifted
hands and streaming eyes, committed
them to the merciful care of the Ruler
of winds and waves and prayed for
their prosperity, while the breezes
which filled the sails of the vessel, toy-
ed with his silver-white locks, which j
hang ia long waves upon his shoulders,
Afterwards the Mayflower landed
these Pilgrims upon the bleak shores of
New England; and their future history
is this great nation. How small the
bfgluBtng how gicnt the result !
It at first seemed a little thing that a
few discontented politicians should be
come excited over the result of a Presi
dential election, and that they should
talk of secession and rebellion; but see
to what destructive consequences this
wickedness has reached in so short a
It does not now appear what effect
this conflict will have upon our national
sins. At present, Slavery ha? nothing
to do w ith the war, except as it was
made a pretext by the South for wag
ing a conflict; but this small beginning
may terminate in its downtaii. uou
may be opening the way for its extirpa
tion in the folly and madness of its
supporters as He did the downfall of
the Papicy by the excessive impudence
of its own strength and the arrogance
of its power.
We have a firm belief that the all-
wise Disposer of events is guiding and
controlling the events in this nalion.and
that they will ultimate in final bless
ings, however grievious they may now
appear. Rut it may bo that for our
sins, we must buffer n baptism of blood,
before the end comes.
Ma' Heaven spare us and lead our
Republic to a glorious destiny. And
may His mercy spare us, while His
justice shall chastise.
The recent action of the British gov-
1 eminent in reference to the existing
rebellion in this country shows that the
rulers of that country are essentially
selfish aud double-dealing in their pol
icy. While professing the utmost
regard for our government, and the
United States in general, the Queeu'6
cabinet go to work and frame a procla
mation the only design of which seems
to linrn hppn tn ritv aid tn ttio rpfipls
by acknowledging them as belligerents.
and entitled to (he rights of nations in
war. This was but one step short of
.acknowledging the independence of the
Southern Confederacy, and was an act
of flagrant outrage upon the govern
ment at Washington, and an insult to
We had a right to expect better
things of the English; and, indeed, the
people of England are liberal towards
America,aside from Slavery, and would
so resent any insult or indignity offered
as, as to render it necessary for an
offending Ministry at home to resign.
I is ieported that the recent action of
the Queen's council raised such a
strong feeling of indignation among the
people of the Kingdom, that nothing
but the precarious health of Victoria
saved the Cabinet. The people love
their Queen, and since the death of her
mother, she is reported to have shown
signs of insanity ; and it was feared
that the re-construction of the Ministry
at this time would seriously affect her
system, and probably hasten an unfor
tunate crisis, and so the matter rests at
present, liable to be brought up at any
time. This may or may not be all true;
but the fact that the report is circulated,
shows that there is disaffection among
the people of England, and that they
are not disposed to see our government
or people insulted or injured by British
But that the British government
should take so strange a stand when
she is more liable to find herself in the
same condition than any nation on the
face of the earth, is passing strange.
Here is Canada immediately on our
holders, with strong ties of affinity
which naturally draw her towards the
Union ; yonder is Australia, a remote
province, with thousands of disaffected
people, a large number of whom hate
heen banished from the mother country
and forbidden to return for a long
period or for life ; and away off in the
orient are her possessions in India,
where millions of people only want a
show of a chance to rise again and throw
off the British yoke. Suppose that any
of these countries should revolt, and
our government, and other governments
should give them aid and comfort by
acknowledging them the rights of na
tionality so far as the war was concern
ed, what must be the re3ult ? It is
exceedingly doubtful w bother England
could conquor or retain a single one of
her foreign dominions.
Here is Canada by our side, with
commercial- interests almost .identical
with our own, and united to us by rail--roads
and navigable waters evidently
by natural situatioa much more a part
of us than of Britain. How easy it
will be for us to retaliate, should oar
neighbors of the north conclude to
assert their independence ! We could
at once regard them as belligerents nod
England could not open her mouth; for
she sets us the precedent. And to give
the Canadians the benefits of such an
acknowledgment on our part would be
tantamount to insuring their indepen
dencc; and it is not at all unlikely that
the memory of the present times will
not pass away beforo the British gov-
'erumenl will Cud that they hate given
Canada away by their foolish course in
the present crisis of our affairs.
There is no excuse for the course the
British Ministry has taken. It appears
to have no foundation except in the
jealousy, envy or selfishness of the
Cabinet of the kingdom; and its read
ing force may yd shake that empire to
its very foundations, and dismember it
beyond the possibility of recovery.
Already has the government ot Brit
ain discovered its error, we may judge
from the tone of the recent dispatches;
but her mistake cannot be wiped out.
She may, and doubtless will, be less
favorable to the rebels of the South
than if the error had not been committ
ed, so that we shall probably be rather
benefitted than injured by it ; but after
all the record has been made up, and
time cannot blot it out. The effect
must follow the cause, and it will tell
with fearful effect when the day of
Altogether, the position of foreign
nations seems very favorable for U3.
The rebels are likely to receive no sub
stantial aid from abroad, and King Cot
ten must fall by the hand of his own
friends, who have wickedly raised n
storm about him which must prove fatal
to his reign and dominion.
Pole Raising at Col. Owens'. The
Oskaloosa Guards, and many citizens,
on Tuesday afternoon, the 2d instant J
went by invitation to Col. Owens' re
sidence, a mile and a half from town,
to assist "mice host" to raise a Union
pole and flag. Most of the Guards
were in full uniform, and made a a err
respectable appearance, performing
their military evolutions aud maneuvers
with much credit to them, considering
the short time they have been drilling.
A number of ladies were present to
'cl'!fr ' " with t,ie!r proving
smiles. After the pole was raised, the
Guards formed iu front of the Col's re
sidence, when John' W. Day, in behalf
of the ladies present, with a few im
promptu remarks, presented for the
occasion the flag which they were ex
pecting soon to unfurl to the breeze.
Capt. McClcllan mado a happy response
in behalf of the Guards. John W.
Day proposed three cheers for the Stars
and Stripes, which were given with a
will. On the suggestion of Noah
Leaverton three loud huzzas were giv
en for Gen. Scott. Col. Owens pro
posed three cheers for Gen. Lyon, to
which, the ladies waving their handker
chiefs above their heads, the crowd re
sponded with threo enthusiastic sheers.
Three cheers for the Union were given
most heartily. The Guards then
marched to the pole, where the Star
Spanglrd Banner was run up the flag
staff amid the repeated firing of salutes
by the military company. The exer
cises passed off pleasantly, and all par
ties returned to their homes more zeal
ous for the Union than when they

his equally patriotic lady.
