The trial of the. Gorddns, in Boston,
on a charge of treason, has produced a
reuntrkahly bold and earnest speech from
Gaerge t?eunott, a lawyer of that, city,
who will -be-especially remembered as the
volunteer counsel of John Brown.
' TAte Gordon tamily counted of the
father ami four sons, silversmiths by
trade, who were induced to attead a pri
vto meeting, over which one Beacon
Palmer presided. The meeting was held
in the cellar of this Palmer, and the
charge of treason made against the Gor
dons.by Mt. Washburn, Mr. Hobart, Mr.
H-'vcs, a niember of Kalloch's church,
ana jorae 6thr-ramrait ' loyalists." Mr.
Hobart. in this ccjlar inquisition, asked
one of the Gordons if he would hansr out
the flag, to which he replied angrily that
ho wonlJno't, under coercion, do any such
thing, whereupon1 the inquisitors lodged
an information before tha District Attor
ney, fortified by their oaths, that the Gor
dotrs were traitors. They were remanded
to Fort Wfrrren. and finally granted a
trial (sublime condescension), but before
the trial was fairly commenced, & nolle
prts-'qiri'ttrtis entered by the-United States
District Attorney, and the case dismissed.
This. Mr. Sennott. the Gordons7 couasel,
would not permit. the:0onrt granting him
leave to make his de'ense, which we pro- j
refit- hero below. How much wie whole
affair looks and sounds like similar affairs
under old tyrannies and dynasties we
feave rtwr retidei s to judge. We hope io
singefierson will pass it by unread. .

He claimed to be almost one of its mar
tyrs. And iu defense of it, he certainly
was the victim of a cowardly assault, in
icted with a ferocity, and endured with a
meekness unexampled in the annals of
cudgeling! He now changes his opinion,
or at least his language. With the feli
city of allusion, which belongs, among
the public writers of America, to him and
to Govern Andrew alone, he advises his
friends to put their "heels' upon those
who -differ from them, and who dare to
speak out. The advice u given in a let
ter to the late war meeting at New York.
Is this prosecution an experiment made
upon poor merchanics, by a few small con
spirators, in pursuance of an agreement
between the prineipal Thugs at Wash
ington, in order, if it works well, to sac
vifice more important victims to the Abo
lition Kalee? I do not kuow I know
that the gentlemen of the Republican
party do not countenance it, and that it

in that condition a very short period of
rest, and it becomes rock, hardly yielding
to the energies of gun-powder and fire.
So have we found the South. They were

of Government have consolidated a hesi

f There are reaaons tending to show
that the Constitution as it is will be per

exist." . ,
The BoHefontaine Republican of July
11, asks:
" Do yon, Democrats, wish to restore the
Union as it was, and the Constitution as
it is? I can not believe it. You certain
ly do not comprehend all the evil that lies
concealed in this high-sounding phrase:
' the Union as it was.' Great God! are we
to have these scones of horrorTe-enacted?"
It is a high crime in Abolition estima
tion for Democrats to be in favor of the
Union as it was. and the Constitution as
it is !

The Commissioner then delivered his

and dismissed the complaint.. Therowd
in the court-room burst into applause,
which nobody ehecked, and many per-r
sons went ftp and shook hands with the
Constitution, and, it is fair to presume,
will use their best endeavors to promote
the good of the country. To assume be
forehand that they will be guilty of per
jury, or that they will even do willfully
wrong, is unjust to tbe last degree.
The effort of the Bepublican journals
is to confound opposition to this Admin
istration with treason to the Constitution.
They keep out of sight indeed, they
entirely ignore the fact that this is a
Government of the people, .and assun
that the safety of the country depends
upon the continuance of power in its pres
ent unwise and incompetent hands. That
the present hands are unwise and incom
petent, we need go no further than these
samo journals to find an abundance of the
timony; and, therefore, the case, by then
own showing, stands thus: It is treason
to seek to take the Government out of ihe
possession of those who arc unfit,' and to
place it in the hands of those who are fit
ter of prime necessity.
An Abolitin-Bepublican editor says he
fails to perceive that the Government has
advanced a single step in the matter o(
employing negroes in the war. Hhs Dem
ocratic neighbor says that even if that
statement be all true, it is a very improper
time to be grumbling aout it.
