Thy name rings on through every clime, Thy sails are spread to every breeze, TLy masts are white with Arctic rime, They bend before the tropic seas; Thine was the dower in other days Of patriot's voice and hero's lays. And many a lion-heart was found In thee; thy vales were holy ground; And from thy many churches rose, Throngh mornings' blnz or evening's close, A grateful incense unto Him Before whoso face the sun is dim; And higb-born Honor walked with thee, And Faith and sweet-eyed Charity; But the eternal winds of Change, That o'er creation's besom range, Have blown on thee, and thou art not The same in beanty, heart, or thought! Thy laurels now are worn by fools, Or brawling faction's mind less tools; Thy churches, how liku empty cells!

Wifocs, New York. SPEECH OF HON. C. S. WiCKLIFFE, AT THE Great Democrat Convention, at Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr. Wickliffe, being introduced by the President of the Convention, alluded briefly to the former relation betweon Indiana and Kentucky. The words of the gentleman who had presented him brought to his memory the events of fifty years ago. It was then a time of war; of a war waged by the people by tha Demo cracy, ho might say of the U.iited States against Great Britain, for freo trade and sailors rights. Indiana and Kentucky had no sailors impressed, and then, as now, those who made our troubles shut themselves up like a terripan in its shell in their New Eng land S'ates, and left us to fiht their battles. God blessed us then. May God bless us now. May He bliss our efforts in maintain ing the Constitution ns it is and restoring the Union as it was, against the wicked Seces sionists of the South and thestMI more wick ed Abolition:sts of the North. Kentucky had authorized him to say that for the Con stitution anil the Union she would devote her all Wr.uM ever Indiana and Kentucky consent that the Union stmul J bodivided bv theOhio River? "So, no."J Indiana willj do as she has done before, pour rut her recious blood defending our free it stiMitior.s against all those who ure combined against them. U on correct prin ciples Indiana would do this. Tor tho Un- . ion and the Cor.stitu 'ion she would do it. but not to carry out the behests of any sectional party, or the leaders thereof, whether in or out of power. It had been asserted that slavery must bo extinguished before we could have peace. When was this proclaimed? Was it in tho month of July, 1861. when in both Houses of Congress, all voted that the war, brought about by Secessionists, should bo wag"d to: maintain the Constitution, restore the Union, ' to preserve tho institutions of the several I States and to protect the citizens thereof in the erjoyment of their personal and domes- 1 tic rights? Was it proclaimed when, after the unfortunate affair ol Bull Run. we again appealed to the patriotism of the country to spill its blood for the purpose above declared? Did any man then say to you that this war should never cease whiia a slave existed within the United States? ! But they say it now. The Abolition partv had swallowed neck and bee's the Republi can parti1. Like sheep, thess Republicans in . Congress followed their leader. When wo Whigs of tho old school, Douglas men and Breckinridge men, who had seen the error of their ways, called upon them to declare that they would wae the war on tho principles ' indicated, as they had in 18ol, like Billv i Bo-peep's sheep, they didn't come up When Judge llo'nian, of Indiana, a good and true man, God Mess him, renewed tho Crittenden resolutions as an assurance to tho . army, and invited them to vote upon it, they j refused. Yet they said thv were for tho Constitution and nr a restoration of the Un ion. They say they are for it now, and they will say they aro for it until after your Oc- : tober election. Mark that! What was the cause of the war? A va'.oc. i "Abolitionism-" Well, you guessed it pretty near, mv friend. Some body must , have told you. That I know; for.so help me i God, it's true! But t hey say slavery is tho cause of the war. If he had the power he would visit upon the heads of tho leaders of tli e rebellion the punishment their wicked ness merited. Bnt when it came to t!ae test very likely he would, like the tory Scotch- ', man, who told the Revolutionary rebel that ; he would le conquered, but that His Majesty i was a meiciful man and would not descend in hanging below a few atrocious characters j he would not, with regard to rebels now-a-daj'S, descend below a few atrocious char- , ters, but he would hang an Abolitionist on ! the other end of every rope. Slavery was as much tho cause of the war j as the tea thrown into Boston Harbor was the cause of the Revolution. This was con- i ceived by designing and ambitious men. In j proof of it, Mr. Wickliffe produced tho reso- i lutionn passed at the New York Abolition j Convention in 185'J. What did this Con- I vention resolve? Why, that because of tho evil of slavery, they invited a free corre- spondence with the disunionists- of the South, ; to the end of a dissolution of tht United S'ates. Thank God, but more thanks to the j Abolitionists of the North, tho Secessionists j say, for they have enabled us to accomplish what we have been trying to do for thirty ' years. Hence yon see we have two classes; of traitors to fight: the Abolitionists among: us, as well as the rebels of the South. As ho had told Lovejoy in Corgress, who, in ! an Abolition harangue, brought out meta- : phoricaliy a ship lull rigged and freighted . with Secessionists and Abolitionists, ho wcuid throw overboard the Abolitionists; first. So people of Indiana, you must throw j them overboard. I dt n't caro under what ! name they pppronrh you. A leopard is just as spotted, although you call him a bear. j Tho South wanted a government separate , from tbe Ea?t. The East wanted a govern- j ment separate from the negro. Thatis what j caused this rebellion. And if the twenty j millions of the North could not conquer the j six millions of tbe South without arming tne nigger, in God's name let the Abolitionists in Congress get out of the way, and we, the conservative men, old Whig8, Democrats and Republicans who reverenced the Con stitution, for there were some such, would prosecute the war, restore the Union, and maintain the rights of all under tho Consti tution intact. Slavery, when tbe Constitution was adopt ed, existed in every S ate but one. Yet Lovejoy talked away in Washington, trying to show that under that instrument, and be cause of tbe Declaration of Independence, tbe negro was free and equal with the white men. Our fathers declared that they the white race, tbe Arglo-Saxon race were free and equal. They made this Govern ment for themselves, for the white man, and not for the negro. If they intended that the negro should stand side by side with you attho ballot-box, and on the battle field, they were the greatest set of hypo crites God ever made, that they did not say so. Why did they not free the slaves every where? Let Lovejoy go and preach his doctrine to tho negro, and let the white man alone. In the last Congress, which had the most time devoted to it, Congress or the nigger? Voices, "The niggerl" Secretary Chase, who is our banker now, was engaged in Cot ton planting at public expense. lie has agents they used to call 'em overseers, but now they aro agents treasury rats, employ employed in this business One of them is named Pearce Pearce, of Ohio. General Hunter had gone on Pearce's Government plantation and turned his niggers into sold iers, with red breeches and striped jackets. Pearce could not stand Hnnter'sinterference, and wrote to Secretary Chase about it, and business on the Government plantation was, the present, at a stand still. Lot the Aboli tionists get out o! Congress, get away from positions of responsibility, get out of the army, and in less tnan six months wo would have peare within tho Union and under the Constitution, lie would give all ho had to sustain the Union; he would lay down his lile for it, but he would have no Union in violation of the Constitution What right had the Gei eral Government to interfere with he slaves in Kc-ntuck? The Aboli- tionists said that it was under the war pow er. Even some of the Governors of the S'.atcs.had said that the Union was broken, that we had no law now but that of an un bridled majority. Tho majority in Congress, calling themselves Republican, had follow ed the Abolition programme to tho letter. They were for confiscation, emancipation, a servile war, aud a desolation of the South. Aro you for such a war? You aro for a war for the Union not for an Abolition war. W hat would you do with these niggers? Do you want them in Indiana?

Artemus Ward's Toast. Artemus Ward being present at a celebra tion and exhibition, was called upon for a speech, when he replied in "a tost to the phair sex:" Ladies, ses I, turnin to tho beau tifal femails whoso presents was perphumin the fare grownd, I hope you're enjoyin yourselves on this occashun, and that lemin aid and ise wotterov which you air drinkin, may not go agin you.

To the Editors of the Cincinnati Gazette: The raid, or rather the horse stealing ad venture just accomplished by Morgan with the advice and consent of the sympathizing thieves in our midst, is all the talk here, and I suppose you have been duly informed of all the particulars. I can now inform you, and this I have from "unquestionably reli able authority ."that Lexington is safe. Now just think of it all Kentucky acting on the defensive against one regiment of thieves. Collecting up the men to Lexington and Frankfort, and waiting there for an attack. Morgin did not come here to fight; his mis sion was in the horse business. He had no time to waste on fighting. The men were nearly all ordered away from Cynthiana, and their horses left there. Of course nothing could have suited Morgan better, add accord - ! ingly he went there and attacked the small force that was left and took up the horses I suppose as strays. But be it remembered to the credit of the little band that were at Cynthiana, they fought the enemy, who numbered four or five to one, for four hours, under the leadership of the gallant Colonel !

Yet I can positively assure you that Lexingtou is safe. The enemy then went to Paris, and the next morning early Gen. G. C.

Smith following close after hiai with asharp stick, but could not get nearenough topunch him, and by this time he is at Mobile if he kept on at the sime rate that he left Paris. But I will quit that subject for my private opinion is that we made a complete flumix of tho whole thing, and no promotions will , , . - . . " . 1 0 . ' J would flock to his standard bv the thousand, but he took away fewer men than he brought with him. But all his mares foaled, and he will of course get back with more horse stock . Is there anybody in America simple enough to be fooled again by the sympathizing scoundrels in Kentucky that profess to do j nothing? But I tell you the3T are constantly j plotting and planuing the destruction of ; avery Union man. Tney invite in these i thieves and robbjrs, co-opsrate with them, ! rob and murder our friends and still expect ' that we must protect their lives and proper-, j ty. Will Kentuckians never, never learn Icommon sense? Will you calmly stand and I look on, and see your State invaded by a j band of murderers, who are invited to your i door by tho scoundrels in your midst, and I calmly 00k on while they murder your fa- ' ther. vnnr lir-rt.. on.? j..,-ffrtnO V-... ...v..-. I a'e thus bereaved know full well who are the sympathizers. 1 hat father, brother and son whose blood now is upon the hands of these fiends in vour own neighborhood, have nobly fallen defending your homes and fire- Slues, aiiu liuw msuu ai ug g-uca ui ucavcii, I guarding it against the entrance of the cowardly relatives left behind who will not avenge their unjust death. Kind policy has been tried protecting their property has been tried. We have protected their fami lies, while they went to war against us. We have protected their property while they robbed us. We have tried to argue consti- tutional ,BW8 while they cut our throats. 7;n t, mi9 T?;aQ Will experience teach vou nothins? Rise and subdue them by any means in your powor. If it requires the taking of their lives, you must do it as a sad necessity. Your country and your life and liberty are at stake. Fight them by any means in your power, as long as they have arms in their hands, or are sympathizing with the enemy. They can make peace in twenty-four hours, if they wish. But you must conquer it You have voted, and they are trying to whip j-ou out of your allegiance to your country and your own decision , and place over you rulers you have rejected You have done your duty at the ballot box. Now try the bayonet. The rich men in your own coun try who have lent their aid and influence to the enemy.Jare the men for your especial at tention. At the beginning of this rebellion they were simple enough to believe that they were to bo made the lords over you ; that the laws of South Carolina would soon be extended over Kentucky, and all of you who did not own ten negroes would be de prived of legislative powets, aud all who were not "nig2er owners wouid be entirely depnvea ot a vote, ana tney woma oa tne lords of our land. Down with them, boys Take that property from them Deprive Ihem of the means by which they expect to Put J"ou down. Teach them that you are tlleir superiors, as men and freemen, if not in property. They did wantonly burn the dwelling houses of our friends Mr. V. and Capt. K., now would it be butsimple justice fr theru t0 move i,lt0 tha finost hou33 of a sympathizer in their neighborhood and drive them out? I call upon you, gentlemen to set the example. Let them feel the anarchy ey have produced, give them somo prac tical demonstration, so that tney can com pare anarchy with the good old way it was when they commenced this war. But, halt. Let us see if we cannot find a Tamely that will do away with the sad uecessity of kill ing our own race end devastating our love ly land. Yes, we can. That is, to remove the cause of this war. If there hal been no slaves, there would have been uo w.ir. Why did our people turn filibusters and attempt to take by force Cube, Central America, Yu catan, &c? They said at tbe time that the object was to extend the slave power, and give the balanceof power to the slave States. Then it is a plain case that if there had been no slaves, there would have been no neces sity for the unholy war upon these unoffend ing people. That spirit of filibustering and roLbiog of onr neighbors was urged on by the same party who uoyr pympathize with the rebels, and are now making war on oar country, and a year ago you could bear nothing else but nigger, nigger. They made war upon our own country as unjustly as they did upon Cuba and for the same pur pose, to conquer a balance of power for the negro owner, and at a time when their negro property was protected by the strongest laws that could be devised, and when no one was disturbing their rights in the negro or any other property. Now some of the same men who were foremost fu the negro cry are try ing to deny that nigger has anything to do with this war. Don't . let them slip out in that way. Can't you all remember one year back? Can they . now make you believe that you were asleep, and dreamed all that? If there h lbeeino nigger, there wau.ll have been no war. Nigger has been the pretext to ride into ofSce on for long years. They have cried nigger Abolitionist ever since I can re member, to carry any point, and the same cry was gotten up this time to create a war. Thirty years ago they attempted to gei up a war upon the tariff, but the public pulse would not vibrate to that call. But now they want a war, and all they have to do is to cry out, "Nigger in danger,' and just see what a terrible conflict follows. In the face of all this, will any sana man believe the negro had nothing to do with the war? Now, fellow citizens, which is the best for us shall wo go on destroying our own race, killing, slaying, devastating; or shall we re move the cause of the war and quit this wicked work, and return to the pursuits of peace and pleasuae, and meet again in quiet out dear ones at heme, sweet home? Ah! Ahl but they tell you that it is better for the negro that he remain as he is. Well, I grant it; but is it better for us? Had we bet ter do that which is better for us, or that which is better for the negro? Is it all the aim and object of our lives to tak care of the negro? Must the peace of Silly and the children, their welfare and their happiness bo sacrificed, they turned loose, widowed and impoverished orphans, that it may be better for the negro? Twenty thousand ot our own race were killed the other day at Rich mond, and a hundred thousand more have died and been slain in this war. Weeping and mourning now fill your land what for? in order that it may be better foi tha ne gro. You are not called upon to sacrifice anything. You are not asked to give them avay,but to take the pay lor them. They are of no profit to us in Kentucky. The money they would b-ing yes, the interest on it will do more labor than they do. We loose nothing by the sale; then, why not re move the cause of, the quarrel and quit kill ing one another? I was born a slave owner, and am now a slave owner, and have been a pro -Slavery man until I see plainly that my coun try is in danger from that institution. My country first. I for one am willing to sacrifice my negroes without compensation if it required that to save my country or to save our own race from this destruction, end he that isnot willing to make such a sacrifice has no soul, ar d is not entitled to the privileges of a free and liberal Government. You must now make a choice; you have no discretion in .!.. i . . i .j yari The ques tion is not now the way you would rather have it, but in self-defense you are com pelled to wipe out the institution or go your selves with wife and children to ruin. You are now at the point that you must decide Your lives, your liberty and happiness are now at state. Weigh well the verdict. Remember that Pharaoh's heart was harden ed; that ho was blind to reason and common sense until he W3s overwhelmed in tha rag ing billows. A like fate awaits you. Let me warn you of the impending danger. Do not fasten on your children this everlasting warfare. Tho value of property' in your State will advance many times the value of j your slaves as soon as you make the sale. Leonldas Metcalfe Not a Word.

"Shoddy" Patriots. -We believe it wat Dr Johnson who made the remark that "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." By the expression he did not mean pure, unadulterated patriotism, or love of country, and a willingness to sutler and die, if need: be, in its detense, like our brave soldier are now doing on tho battle-fields of Vir ginia and elsewhere; but he meant that spurious, affected kind, the possession of which, like tho hypocrite described by the great English Poet, "wears the livery of heaven to serve the devil in." Such patriots are to bo found at every street corner, of every town and village in osr Commonwealth--great overgrown, blustering, blather ing demagogues, who are too lazy to work, and too cowardly to shoulder their muskets and march in defense of their country. The patriotism of these contemptible fellows consists in slandering and villifying a large portion of their fellow-citizens and de nouncing them, behind their backs as trai tors and disunionists. We have quit a num ber cf these "shoddy" patriots in Logan. It is not necessary for us to point them out by name, as they are well known in tha community. Some of them attempt to di vert public attention from their own rotten characters by exuding thoir slime upon their neighbors. It is an old stop thief cry of the "scoundrel" depicted by Dr. Johnson and the ear-marks are visible at every step of his progress. Such "scoundrels" still exist, but their power for mischief is at an end. Hocking (0.)
