Mr. Plants Iu )our article on "The
Book of Life" you say. "Ii is a startling
idea that the history of our life experience
is written legibly upon our souls, and
may be read by any whose perceptions are
keen enough to trace the electric lines,
whether such persons are in or out of the
physical body." And when thus written,
you call the Book of Life. I want to
know if we must understand that none can
read the Book of Life but those that have
this' ."keen perception," and is it so that
those that have this "keen perceptiou"
scrutinize the entries of recording angels,
and suppose that they are lull of mistakes
and evasions. And again you say, "when
we arrive at a ! sufficient iuuteness of per
ception we shall see as .we are seen, and
know as we are known.. Will you please
to tell us how we are to whet np our per
ception to that acuteness that we can look
in "upon the soul and trace 'the electric
lines.". . You say that it can be done in
the physical body as well as out. Indeed,
you see that your learned article is to me
learned, nonsense; please,- then, to:, iu
struot a i ' i .'! Lkahkkr. .
Middleport, Sept. 12, 1859.
The above communication is from an
esteemed friend, and we insert it with
pleasure. The article referred to is not
our production, as our friend will see by
looking at it agaiti It found its way into
the miscellaneous department of our pa
per, as many suolt items do which are
found in bur exchanges, and whoso au
thorship is unknown. -'
But, while we say this, to account for
its appearance in the Telegrah, we must
frankly admit that on examining it in view
of our friend's criticism, the leading idea
strikes us as beautiful and true, as well
as "Btartling' and if permitted to have
its legitimate influence upon the lives of
men, would do much to banish from the
earth the - selfishness and fraud the
wrongs arid outragesthe licentiousness
and depravity,'' which ' mar" the ' moral
beauty, and destroy the purity and refine
ment of social life. ' ; ,-T. , . . .
' It does eeem to us that if the minds of
men' were firmly impressed, with the
"startling" truth and we believe it to be
true that every impure thought harbored
every licentious impulse indulged every
sentiment of hatred cherished every se
cret purpose of revenge admitted to a
home in the heart every scheme of fraud
and . deception ' contemplated, although
never acted but, and every motive to all bad
actions, did, by the very laws of life, leave
their contaminating effWtts woven into the
very substance of the soul, and constitu
ting its "Book of Life," they would shun
the contaminating atmosphere of vice, as
they, would the contagion of natural dit
ease. " " - " ' i:-'- .:
But we have neither time nor desire, at
present, to enter into a disoutteion of the
subject. - It does not, however, seem to
us, as it does to vw friend, to be "Iesrn!J
nonsene,"but a grent psychological, truth,
which binds tiue philosophy in a married
uuion to pure religion, and brings the
sanction of both, to urge men, by the
most powerful of all conceivable consider
ation," to be just and upright, kind and for
giving, pure and good. C ,
' We think our friend has mistaken the
idea of the author altogether. He asks:
"Is it so that those that have this keen
perception can scrutinize the entries of reT
cording angels, and suppose that they are
full of mistakes and evasions?" Now our
friend will see if he will look at the little
article which has called out his criticism,
that there is nothing there about mis
takes and evasions of recording angels.
But. speaking of the "Book of Life," the
author
'The error is in supposing it to' be a
book kept somewhere outside of them
selves, by' a recording, angel,, who notes
down every act, word and thought. . The
reality is even more impressive than this;
the recoid is within ourselves, it admits of
neither mistake rior evasion."
And if it be true that the thoughts, and
motives, and actions of men make up their
spiritual ttatt become impressed upon
the soul itself, making the infallible record
within lhem-r-is ii not far more "impres
sive" thau the belief that "recording an
gels" are, somewhaMr-notiug -dwn i
book . outside of themselves, the same
thoughts, motives and actions?' '
But the subject is of a nature that don't
seem in place in a political paper during a
campaign, however important in itself.
Still, if our friend has thoughts on the sub
jects which he deems of importance, we
will publish them with pleasure, and in
vite him to our columns, not for the pur
pose of controversy, but to elicit truth. "
The Campaign In Ohio.
. The telegraph from ' Washington an
nounces that the Administration has sent
out , ex-Governor Medill, a a missionary,
to Ohio, to Counteract the effect of the
late visit and speeches of Douglas. Our
readers know 1 Gov. Medill. When he
failed to secure a seat in Congres, by
humbugging the people, the President, of
course, had to take care of him. He was
consequently put into a nice, office at
Washington, where he has been ever since.
Being under the pay of Buchanan, he
must do Buchanan's : work. That is fair,
and according to. the contract. But Bu
chanan's maiu business now is to hunt
down Douglas, and no fitter instrument
could be employed than Gov. Medill.
Whether he is to stump the State, or
woik under, ground, is not alated. Per
haps the latter, as it would be more in
accordance with the habits of the Gover
nor. The woik requires peculiar eno-i-
neering. ' It is of vast importance to the
operators, all round, that the party should
be held together; and the voters of both
factions are needed for that purpose. But
for national purposes, and to carry out
the Lecompton schemes of the Adminis
tration and the sli ve power which rules it,
it is equally important that Douglas
should be "suppressed.11 Thus, each
faction is laboring to circumvent the other,
and both hope to use the party organiza
tion to ascomplish their purposes. And
hence . Douglas calls on his friends to
'sustain the party," as the only means of
rescuing the Government from the hands
of Buchanan's Administration, and thus
securing the liberties of the people, which
he says are endangered by the despotic
schemes which that Administration is de
termined to carry out. While Buchanan
and his followers,' quite as lustily, call
upon their, clansmen ,to 'sustain the
purty. M the only means of " subduing
the rtlel,'' and Baviug ! the Constitution
from1; ' utter' oyerfrrow? tn'rongh" !''' the
"squatter sovereignty". , heresy, and
Pugh is" dodging between, and, like the
bat, jn the war of the beasts and birds, is
on either side, according to the company
he happens to be in; ready,, like that fitting
type of his class of polittoin to side with
the victors, and equally' clamorous for the
party, in order that he may be returned
to the 'Senate. . ". .'""' '' 1
In this game of cheatery, circumvention,
sham and humbug, the welkin is made to
rinff with 6hrieks of "Abolitionist!"
"Black Republican ! 1" and "Woolly
head ! ! !" shouted in chorus by the war
ing factions to their respective supporters
as if the people were bereft of reason, con
science, atid common sense, and were to be
moved only though the lowest and basest
of passions and prejudices. .
But will they win in such a contest?
We do not know, but can hardly believe
itposnible. The same stale slang has been
employed for the last five years, not only
in Ohio, but in all the free States, and the
result has been that the people have every
where rebuked the inmlt offered, to their
manhood. And we believe that rebuke
will be mademore emphatic than usual', in
Ohio, af the coming election. ' We are en
couraged in this opinion by the overwhelm
ing prostiation of the Democratic party in
Vermont and Maine, whose elections have
just come off, and where the same' tactics
were employed with all the energy that
desperation, and the patronage of the Gov
ernment could lend to the leaders. .We
believe the same 'result awaits them in
every free State. The advance of' educa
tion and morality will, we trust, soon ren
der such a mode of political warfare so un
profitable that self interest, if not a better
taste, will compel the adoption of at lenst
an approach to outward decency, of lan
guage, if not n -nearer approximation to
truth. ' ' '.: '-" ' "' ;
We would fain believe that there are
but few whose innate depravity would lead
them to prefer falsehood and slang to truth
and argument, if tliey thought they could
accomplish their ends as well by the latter,
and if Uiey are effectually taught by the
votes of the people that a proper estimate
is placed upon these dishonorable applian
ces, they will be laid aside. , It is true,
that if the use of these epithets was dis
carded the occupation of many would be
gone, but community would be the gainer
thereby. '. ' ".'"" .."..'.''k..f! ".
Something I a Muss. .
The "harmonious Democracy" are in a
terrible ferment. The war between the
Douglas faction and the regular Demo
cratic leaders is becoming fierce beyond
all former precedent, " ;; a , J .',' '.
Douglas recently published a labored
article in f 'Harper's Magazine," in: .which
he attempted to maintain his recent inven
tion of "squatter sovereignty," and at the
6ame time to reconcile it with the "Dred
Scott Decision," and all the other contra
dictory and irreconcilable dogmas of the
several factions into which the party is di
vided. .!: . '.;'.'-. Vr , . ! !
The effort was a hopeless one) of course,
huiit. was!' the, Jast 'desperate jpnancei for
the Illinois Senator to reach the aim of his
ambition, and with ;a desperation equal to
the emergency of the case, he has given
himself up. to the work, . v.
The Richmond. "Enquirer,-' the organ
of the Democratic party in; Virginia, and,
a supporter of Gov. Wise for the Presi
dency, soon after the appearance of Doug
las' article, contained a long and most
scathing review bf the positions of Doug
las, pronouncing the' Illinois' Senator an
"incendiary," and his article an "incendi
ary" document. This I "terrible onslaught
U attributed to Gov. Wise himself, and is
producing quite a bensation in the South.
More recently the '.'Constitution, ' Bu
chr nan's Organ at Washington, issued an
other manifesto against the "little rebel,"
which is fiercely severe, if not annihilating.
This is said to be the join' production of
Buchanan and the Cabinet.' , Douglas says
Attorney General Black is its author, and
in his speech at Wooster the other day, as
reported in the "Statesman," Douglas re
plied to this emanation'of the Administra
tion in a strain of the bitterest inviclives.
Douglas says the boys in the streets are
circulating this Administration document
by the thousand for the purpose of injuring
him. and ''infamous falsehoods" "double
falsehoods" ''premeditated falsehoods,
&c, tfec, are the terms in which he char-,
acterizes thio product of Buchanan and his
Administration, as put forth through the
Attorney General. - ' ''" -'
We would like to publish these docu
ments that our readers might see the lov
ing affection with which these "harmoni
ous Democrats" speak of ' each other. If
the hundredth part of what they charge
upon each other be true, a patriot army
would be safer under the command of
Benedict Arnold, than the interests and lib
erties of the country under the manage
ment of either of these factions. ' '
Douglas is straining every nerve to se
cure the appointment of Delegates to the
Charleston Convention that will work'for
his nomination: Many of his friends sky
that if he does not (succeed his friends will
break up the Convention and run him in
dependent. , On the other hand, many of
the Administration journals boldly pro
claim that if he gets -the nomination llie
whole South and the Buchanan men in the
North will bolt,, and run another candidate.
' But in the uiidst of this babble of con
fusion and strife the papers and, stumpers
of Ohio ure singing the praises of the "har1
monious Democracy," and i. proclaiming
tliAl the pally is one in sentiment and one
in action everywhere! ; And on this trans
parent deception the leaders are flattering
their followers with the promise of suc
cess! ' " ' , ..

. ; ; September 17, 1859. .J
The announcement that Senator Trum
bull of Illinois, the distinguished colleague
and dissector of Stephen A. Douglas,
would speak kt Bellefontain to-day, created
quite sensation among the people, of this
and adjoining counties, who have watched
and admired hiapublio career; and at the
appointed hour a large crowd had assem
bled to hear him. He is a tall, slim, wiry
matv whiskered and spectacled," with' a
compact forehead, piercing blue eyes, and
a' mouth ' of inflexible firmness '. which
closes at the end of an emphatic sentence
as if never again to open. , There is noth
ing of the actor in his manner, but his' de
livery, though perhaps a little labored, is
unaflected and A imbued witli the ap
pearance of sincere conviction: , His only
gesture is made with the long fore-finger of
his right hand, with which he emphasises
his periods, and forces into the heart of
his antagonist, as it were, his decisive con
clusions. After listening to him. for ten
minutes youV, y'well understand why
Douglas shbid wish'to avoid that' terri
bly fore-fingefhen directed against him
by the "Incarnation of pitiless Logic"
who wields it.
' The present campaign in Ohio is waged
by our opponents solely W the ,"one-idea" .
of popular sovereignty, and 'the head boy
of the class," as Trumbull calls Douglas,
is himself earnestly at work, teaching the
new dogma.' "As I know of nothing which
could more conclusively expose the fal
lacies, of, this patented hobby than the
speech I heard to-day, I have' thought. it i
might be' both interesting and useful to
send you as good a report of it fts I could
crowd iuto reasonable Jimits. . For the
sake of perspicuity I shall drop henceforth
the Reporter's style, and present, as well
as I am able, the substance of the argument.'.,.."'-'
'' .'': ' " , ' !' ., .,
The pdlitical year of 1852 dawned au
spiciously upon the country. ' Both of the
then existing parties we're alarmed at the
tJangeious form which the agitation of
Slavery threatened to take, and solemnly
pledged themselves to discountenance all
attempts to renew it anywhere, or in any
form. ' The SoUih had secured the passage
of a stringent law tor the rendition of fugi
tives the North had at the same time se
cured to freedom the States and Territories
acquired from Mexico all the Territories
were pledged to freedom and by these
successive '.'Compromises," the question
was avowedly settled. How different the
aspect of ftnan-s' nowl JNola speech has
been deliveied on national politics for the
last five- yj-,whott burden was not
"Slavery.''.' No other question despite the
effort of trimmers, can-now command at
tention. In a time of profound peace this
question, bo momentous that it excludes
all others and so vexations that it threat
ens to divide the country into parties of
ungoverned passion, rather than of tem
perate difference of opinion, has been
sprung upon the country without an hon
est, purpose o.r without decent pretext.
Who is responsible for all this? ' Whoever
he may be, how is he better than a traitor?
We have only to go back to the year
1854 to discover at once the origin of the
present political parties and the source of
the present agitation. Then it was that
the Missouri Compromise was repealed,
byj the passage of .Douglas' Kansas-Nebraska
Act,, and the Territories opened to
Wavery.J Then it was that compromises
ceased to be worth the paper on which
they were written, and the North was
forced either to lake: a stand of .open op
position to the Slave Power or to suc
cumb to its every demand. - ;Then it was
that were organized, the ofie on the prin
ciple.'of legislation for'. Slavery, urid the
Other against it, he, present Democratic
and Republican parties,-., Then it was that
began the "irrepressible conflict" of which
this' campaign in Ohio is an important
battle' And then it was that lecturers'and
writers first sought to Jay the. spirits they
had roused tltoughout the land,- by utter
ing and uniting the quack charm of Pop
ular Sovereignty. J' -
And Ibij whose benefit was, tliis great
principle discovered' and applied? ' -The
Territories did not wish .it, for they were
then an unpeopled wilderness. . Did it
benefit the people of the States? How
many of them have tin interest' in the re
moval of obstacles to the spread of slavery?
To all but the slave-holder, the institution
is confessedly an injury. Of the free
whites of this nation, but one man in sixty
holds a slave; of the whites in the South
em States even,, but one in twenty is a
slave-holder.;. r:By what stretch of patriotio
fancy by what miracle of exalted states
manship, BhaH ihat Legislation which dis
regards the interests of the fifty-nine for
the sole benefit of the sixtieth man, be
transfigured into popular sovereignty?
Would the wishes of 350,000 capitalists
of the "Norther ncities of New York, Phil
adelphia and Cincinnati receive such
consideration, , or .would like demands
from them be kicked indignantly out of
Congress? ' : ''""
"But," say the advocates of "popular
sovereignty," "we do not propose to leg
islate j or slavery we propose to leave the
people of the,, Territories free to regulate
their internal affairs in their own way,
subject -only to the Constitution of tJ
United States." But what does t
mean? Senator Douglas, in his recent ar
ticle in "Harper's Magazine," assigns to
the people the right legally ( that ' is;
under the eurvilance of the' Supreme
Court) to control slayeiy" not a hint does
he give of a right to exclude it. He, in
common with the whole Democratic party,
places property in slaves upon the same
basis as, property r in. other., "chattels;' of
whatever. kind, but says that the Territo
rial Legislatures may "discourage it by
unfriendly legislation." ' But" bow?' Ev
ery man knows that property is not the
subjectof statuatory creation, and that rem
edies are provided both by the common
law and by the enacted codes which affect
all , property alike. ,: Once acknowledge
the claim that there is no distinction be
tween, slaves and other property, and the
whole question is placed beyond the power
of Legislature or Court to nfleot it. And
this has been carefully provided for in Sen
ator Douglas' own Kansas Nebraska Bill,
wherein, through the vain fear that some
Territorial Court may not be subservient
enough, it is provided that appeal shall be
had to the Supreme Court in all oases in
volving the right to slaves, whatever their
value; while a dispute involving $1,000
worth of other properly is requisite to en
title parties to ft like appeal. The barrier
once removed, the banded capitalists ' of
the South will take due care that Slavery
is introduced, and with the ' help of ; Dred
Scott courts will have no need of legisla
tionor their institution.; ' ".: I
But the alleged "prinoiple" is, in its
naked form,' a fallacy, and, in' its' ultima
lion by its discoverers, a cheat., ,; Popular
sovereignly is not the : principle at the
foundation of our Governments 'The doc
trine that majorities shall rule is not the
doctrine of the Constitution. What is the
object of a Constitution , save to protect
and benefit minorities? What its result,
save the limitation, and to a certain extent
the defeat, of popular sovereignty. The
United', States Senate,, wherein ' all the
States are equally represented, is, in its
check upon the House of Representatives,
a constant and constitutional denial of the
doctrine. So is the electoral system. So
is the President's veto. Not one of us
would live an: hour under a government
wherein of five men, three had absolute
power over the remaining two'. iY Popular
sovereignty is indeed one element of our
government, but ii is ' so checked and
modified by other elements, that it can
never, without the. subversion of our na
tional eharaoter and of our liberty, become
what demagogues have sought to make it,
the ruling idea.
And how has its author embodied his
principle in the Kansas-Nebraska Bill?
Httve the people, under this, the power to
elect their, own Governor, their Judges,
their Marshals? This was indeed pro
posed, but Senator Douglas was among
the first to vote against it. Have they
the power even to define the jurisdiction
of. a Justice of the Peace? Even this
petty act of self-government has been fore
stalled. Have tljey the power to enact
their own Territorial laws? Yes, but
subject to the two- thirds veto of a Con
gressional Governor a power which the
people of Ohio have denied the Governor
of their own election. When they organ
ize as a State even, are they free from restrictions?-.
No! They are still, subject to
the Constitution of the United States,
Wherein is it less a violation of self-gov
ernment to require obedience to a Consti
tution than to laws? ' Wherein isr, the dif
ference, in . their relation to the abstract
question of self-government, between the
restrictions which the Democracy have
thus ' imposed, and those' in regard to
slavery which the Republicans; advocate?
But, says the Democrat, jt is. unconsti
tutional for Congress to legislate on the
subject of slavery. - In what clause is such
legislation forbidden? Is not Congress
authorized "to make all heedful rules and
regulations or the government pt the Ter
ritories?'' i And even if this clause, refers,
as is sometimes said, to' the' mere land, is
it not the duty of Congress so to legislate
that the Territories shall be most Valuable
to its future possessors? , Besides, our
fathers, from the'framers down, including
the Stephen A. Douglas of years prior to
1854, recognized the constitutionality of
anti-slavery restrictions upon the Territo
ries. In 1789, the celebrated ordinance
ol 1787, dedicating to perpetual freedom
all the then existing territory of the United
States', was re-affirmed by Congress, and
received the Presidential sanction . of
George Washington. In 1800, Indiana
was organized into a Territory, with the
anti-slavery restriction, and her organic
act was approved by John Adams. In
1805, Thomas Jefferson allowed the crea
tion, with the same restriction, of the Ter
ritory of Michigan. " In 1820 was passed,
under tbe Presidency of JameS Monroe, the
Missouri Compromise, whichj dedicated to
perpetual freedom all ' that vast territory
acquired from France, north of 36:30.
In 1836, Andrew Jackson was found ready
to forbid the existence of slavery in the
Territory of Wisconsin In l 838' Martin
Van Bureu did the same for Iowa, jjln
1845, Texas was admitted, and although
slavery already existed there, James K.
Polk aided in abolishing it by national
legislation north of 36:30. Again, in
1850, we find Stephen A. Douglas seeking
to extend the Missouri Compromise to the
Pacific Ocean. And yet i a it unconstitu
tional? 1 . ;:; ;' ' :;;'
And if it is not unconstitutional thus to
orbid Slavery in the Territories,' as little
is it an act of injustice to the people them
selves. ''Who are these people?, Your
own children. . Will you curse your fathers
because they left your noble Ohio free,
and made you what you are?. Or thank-,
ing them, and rejocing in your wealth and
independence acquired though' their apts,
will you withold a hundred blessings from
your sons? Be men, be patriots! men !
and patriots alike in gratitude, to your
tAtners who lormed your country, and in
duty to your children who alone "will be
able to preserve it. Force not your eon
to leave your now thickly settled State for
one where Slaver degrades the farmer and
mechanic, and decimates the value of the
very ground, on which its blaok shadow
falls; but rather secure to them a Lind of
Promise which free labor shall bless and
enrich, and where Liberty, child of the
consecrated soil, shall reverse the anoient
fable, and give to its mother Earth fresh
strength with its every, tread! '' ".'

new country. - In 1817, she made a public profession
of religion, was boptlced by Rev. Rarzlllal H. Miles,
and nniied with tbe Church In ttat place, la 18'.3'
her place of residence was changed from Chester to
Rutland, some, drteen miles distant, tjhere she resi
ded until her death. During this period she was
more or less afflicted with the complaint that termi
nated her life, but amldut It she manifested much
patience and resignation to the Divine will. In ad
dition to her bodily afflictions, she was called, in
tho summer of 1S53, to part with tho companion of
her early days, stricken down by the baud of death.
Still she manifested the same resignation that had
ever characterized her course, maintaining an exem
plary walk bofore tbe world a consistency of Chris
tian character, though much admired, but too seldom
seen. Though rather- diffident and retiring In dis
position, none ever questioned bar piety, or doubted
Iter sincerity. Though not always able to attend Di
vine worship, owing to declining health, yet she ever
rejoiced In the prosperity of tbe Church, and had the
unspcakablo pleasure of seeing matt, if not all of her
family, become hopefully pious. During tho last four
months of hoi life, she was confined to her room, and
her sufferings were severe. From the coinnieuce-
mentof her illness, she expressed the conviction that
she would not recover, which prediction Was veri
fied. A funeral discnurse wus delivered on the oc
casion by Rev. K.'Kathburn, from Phil. 3: 711.
Children and grandchildren aru thus called to mourn,
but not without hopo. ' Kami Hibbard B.krhtt.
