Editor Upon looking over the columns of the Marshall County D?mo craf. dated August 14th I noticed an ar ticle headed. ' They were accommoda ted;" which upon perusal, I thought thai, in justice to the rrty concerned, and the caue of truth and ri&ht, should be cor rected. The filet assertion was correct, for we did want "opposition" from cur "short lived friends," knowing that tnith nvrr lost any of ils lustre by rubhii.g; (Lfi truth and error grapple, bin our motto) and that it would result iu favor of our cause and the advancement of Republic an principles. That such was the result, was conceded by both Republicans and Democrats, and to the alarm, chagrin and mortification of the latter s every ifcu est Democrat who was present will ad mit; hence the article lht appeared in the Democrat, wis to counteract the re sult in our favor, and if possible retrieve the loss sustained by accepting our invi tation, and letting error grapple with truth. That this was their object, they dare not and do not deny. The 'unterified"sent to Plymouth to get some great gun toanswer from Putnam county, and J. G. Obborne vol unteered to aid in the cause of slavery extension and advocate the principles of squatter sovereignty, and the beauty of leaving the peopte of Kaims" perfectly free to govern theniS'lve?, as illustrated by Franklin Pierce, Douglas Atchison & Co., and contemplated ta the "Giant's bill." He assured us that it was neces sary for the preservation of the Union, and a continuance of squatter sovereignty, and of leaving the people of the Territo ries perfectly free, öc, that we must elect James Buchanan to the Presidency. But the most startling, awful and dis graceful charge wa, that of Fremont's being a seciet partner in a banking house and cheating the company out of a large amount of money, for which rfdrrts could not be had on the account of Fiemont's being a secret partner, &c. For further particular;, enquire of his Democratic friends of Knox. When Daggy replied to this portion of his spctrch, the house became too warm for Mr. Oiborne, and some of his Democratic friends. The. Reverend Dr. had not the oppor tunity of replying to Ooborue, ag the mee ting then adjourned, and the latter gentle man left for Plymouth. We had speech- es in the evening, as stated in the Dem erat; but the Democrats here, wh have J any regard for truth, do not pretend toie thm berom endorsers of wilful say that the controversy between Du'gy j n-i orrupi libellers. and Osborne was alluded to in th- ee i bi Express, like Noble has open ning, except that the Dr. said it ws uu-1 ft on this hole in the wall, and can nev- necessarr to travel over the same gioutid.

BY HENRY WARD BEECHER. j firct cnmm,i tvliifh er enpnt in T i , i - .... . Lenox, we had along n very intelligent , j vii u i i .. , , .. j , ., , many things, and by his dog-tore excited t ,, ... ... the undying admiration of all the chil- hings lying dren. But there were some things which Noble could never learn. Having oa one occasion seen a red squinel run inlo a hole in a stone wall, he could not be per suaded ihal he was not there for ever- more. Several red squirrels lived close to the hnncp and had hcrnmn familiar, hut not mi i i . :.u 1 tame. They kept up a regular rump with, . , Tt u j t , Noble. Thev would come down from , . ... ,- n j,,..,, the maple trees with provoking cooluese; ii ,l. t.. thev wnu'd run alone the lence alinct within reach; they would cock their tails, wal1 wilh i1'81 a' much zal 48 ever and sail across the read to the barn, and We never read the ExPr. now-day-yet there was such a well-timed calcula- w'hoal ,Ilinki,, involuntarily, "Good tion under all this apparent r.ehness, th.t ! n"! he do letting off at the hole Noble invariably arrived at. the critical , , spot just as the squirrel left it. Political Gossip. The following is On one occasion, Noble "was eo close j the vole for Preslon S. Brooks at the re upon his red-backed fiiend that, unable ; cenl election in the third Congressional to get up the maple tree, he. dodged into J district of Saulh Carolius, compara l with n hole in the wall, run through xhe chink?, j t,e Congressioual Tote cast in the same emtrfteu ai a iiuie usance, iinu eprui m int.t the tiff. The intense enthusiasm of the dog at the hole can hardly be des cribed. He filled it full of barking. He pawed and scratched as if undermining a bastion. Standing off at a little distance he would pierce the hole with a gazi as intense and fixed as if ha were trying magnetism on it. Then, wilh tail exten ded, and every hair thereou electrified, he would rush at the empty hole wilh a prodigiojs onslaught. This irnmagiuary squirrel haunted No ble night and day. The very squirrel himself would run up before his face in to the tree, and, crouched in a crotch, would sit silently watching the whole process of bombarding the empty hole vrith great sobriety and relish. But No bt irout2 11 v ofnnflnnhtR. HiS Con- vie tion that that hole had a squirrel in, continued unshaken (or six weeks. When nil other occupations failed, this bole re mained to him. When there were no more chickens to harry, no pigs to bite, no cattle to chase, no children to romp with, no expeditions to make with the grown folks, and when he had slept all that his dog-skin would hold, he would walk out of the yard, yawn and stretch himself, and then lock wistfully at the hole, as if thinking to himself, Well, as there is nothing else to do, I may as well try thnt hole again!" We had almost forgotten this little trait, until the conduct of the New York Express, in respect to Col. Fremont's re ligion brought it ludicrously to mind a gain. Col. Fremont is, and always has been, as sound a Protestant as John Knox ever was, . He wa bred in the protestant faith nod has never changed. He i un acquainted with the doctrines and fcere monies of the Catholic Church, and has never attended the services ofthat church with two or ihre exceptions, when curi" oeity, or some other extrinsic reason, led him as a witness. We do not state this as vague belief. We know what we say We say it upon cur own personal honor end proper knowledge. Col. Fremont never was. and is not now, a Roman Catholic, He has never been wont lo attend that church. . Nor has he in any way, directly . or indirectly, given occa sion for this report. It is a gratuitous falsehood, utter, bar ren, absolute and unqualified. The story has been got up for political effect. Iiis still circulated for that reason, and like other political lies, it is n sheer, unscru pulous falsehood from top to bottom, from the core to the skin, and from .the skin back to the core sgain. In all its parts, ic pulp, in tegement, rind, ceil ind seed, it is n thorough and total un truth, and they who spread it bear false witness. And as to all the stones of the Fulmer, etc., as to supposed conversa tions with Fremont, in which he defenr ded the ma?s, and what not, they are pure Hctions. They never happened. The auUmr of ih-m r slaoderer; the men to Krlit-ve t.t:i are dupes; the men who er be done. barking at it. When every. J thing else fails, this resource remains. - .:j-e..:.vi .v. T?

Pursuant to a call of the Republican Executive Committse, the friends of freedom of eastern Indiana held a mass meeting on the 9th inst., at Liberty, the county seat of Union county. Bing a rival meeting to the great Democrat" monstration at Connrattre, held upon ih 7th," biit two days previous, it was looked upon as in a measure a test of the relative strength and enthusiasm of the two great parties. The result far sur passed the expec tations of the most san guine Repuplicans. Without th? advan tages of extensive and long continued publicity and elaborate preparation, which preceded the Democratic gathering at Connersville, it yet far surpassed it in enthusiasm and the number in attendance. At an early hour of the morning of tho 9th every road leading to tho place des ignated for the meiing wrR thronged, and literally blocked up. with every variety of vehicle of transportation, dis playing floating utiikis. b'-.aring various ! appropriate its-.-tip tit mis. The number of 4lig wagons'' wss estimated at a 7ihm dred, or upwards, drawn by from four to tveenty-fuur hors ä ech. The wagon train, as it pnssed through Liberty, was estimated to have been six miles long. The crowd began to arrive upon the ground a etily as seven o'clock in the morning, and continued, to pour in, in dense masses, until half-past twelve, when it was estimated by the best judges to amount to from forty to fifty thousand. This vast assemblage was addressed by the Hon. Geo. W. . Julian, end the people were invited to partake of the public repast which had beea prepared for them.

Tin -. h city of cnly bout thtee thousand inhabitants, nu- out a county c'tvention, it was an expression of freedom which would have done honor even to our populous cities, in Ohio. The streets were blocked up with wagous, carriages and horsemen, and footmen crowded the side walk34and even the commons to an overflowing. From a distant view one ronld have easily imagined himself g-izing over New York harbor with thick set masts and clouds of floating banners.

The Washington correspondent of the New York Post, writing ou 2d insf,, says; A gentleman who saw Mr. Sumner a week ago, says that he was then in a very feeble condition, and that the indications of his improvement were not encouraging. Mr. S. is stil! in expectation of a speed recovery, but it is thought that he, as well as his friends, have made a mistake in concealing the extent and ;erioug nature of his maladies. It mußt be something beside a mere flesh wound to be followed by a prostration of the nervous system, which at the eud of ten weeks seems as far from restoration as at the beginning. The Dedham zelte (Aug. 21) sys: Present Conditio or Mr. Sumseh. On Wednesday we had the. pleasure of meeting an old friend who has beeii foi j several years an intimate personal friend of Mr. Sumner, t ith whom he passed two days during the last week at Cape May. He states that'Mr. Sumner, though batter in some respects, is still suffering trom extreme weakness, precluding at present either physical or mental exortion.' Ia the opinion of his consulting physician his constitution, though of great natural vigor, is of the cites which recovers slowly from the effect of Severe illness or physical injury. In the judgment of our frind there was little or no reason for apprehending any serious permanent injury to Mr, Sumner in ?case he was removed Irom all cause of excitement but his recovey üust be a work of time. Mr. Sumri'r. , while at Cape . May, was m i'.jc iVniiiy of ! Mr, Furness, o( Philadelphia, from whom he received every possible attention. He has since left fur the Allcghenies for the benefit of mou.i'hin air. , la the . opinion of his '. - onysu im. dis escape wun nis tue w is h,,n -1 rniracU. ' He himself remarked.

If Mr. Sumner's life is spared, h"i3 past cöttrte.and present position give promise ;.f a career which will rival in splendor and renown any name in the anuals of American history. He has already be corjie one cf the foremost men of the present age and his name and sufferings are' thoroughly identified, with those martyrs fihd heroes v. ho, in all ages, have fought valiantly fjr Freedom and the rights of man. - A gentleman of South Carolina, , with j tr ? maiil'f.'ss, .volunteers the following .u:-ni--fit iu ihj New i'oik Daily Times.

It will- cost 8100 per year to support him. To this body add a mind, and in what an extraordinary ratio has the person's value been raised.. He can now earn, suppose &300 per year, that equals 6400 above the value of the ediot, .which is lo be set down to the credit of mind. '. Now add. education perfecting him from birth to maturity, and what catf'ha earn? Is 81,000 per year too much- to allow? That is 8700 more than Ihe educated man is allowed; and how highly must we rate the expenses of education? It could not average 8700. which there fore yields 100 per cent. People usually count the cost of growth and sustr&anct of the body as part of the expense of education, but this should never be dor.?; a clear distinction should always be made between the expenses to be charged to the body and those to be charged to the mind, end es clear a distinction should be made in case of the credits, for at oner, some very praticable truths would thu be exhibited. Perhaps the following table will present the truth in a conspicuous man ner: Body costs up to 21 years 81,000 Mind " 000 Education " 700 Body costs after that 8100 par year. Mind gains after that 300 " 'Education gains after that 1000 " It is also to be noticed that Iba uneducated man is more valuable in mid dle age. than in advanced years: tut the educated man grows more valuable as years increase, so that if he begin life with earning a sum which represents tho interest of 810,000, he will find his in come to double quite as eooq as if his capital were in gold. These figures are not fanciful, they are of course a certainty given for ta uncertainty, and merely for illustration, they may be exchanged for any other to please any caviller, but any fair tact of tha truth will prove that education will pay moro thau 100 per cent, upon its ccst. it would appear then that any man wha would reckon up his investments must, tv what ha has in lauds, cattle, implements 6cc, add at least 81.000 for every mature child he has raised, and if he has added to the child a good vducation. In- has changed this otherwise unprofitable investment Into a fortune of not !e3 j.hat 10,000. No w every principle of commercial policy, or of political economy, would, dictate that we should edd a little investment it we can thereby save the whole, and mucr more readily sh .uld we do it if we caa turn tbe whle, iu.o the most profitable of all investments; and whit investment is there which will pay, as will brain mind and education combined doT Fusion. A correspondent of the N. Y. Express, writing from . Montgemery. Alabama.cn the 3d concludes his letter as. follows, italicising as given below: "If New York and one or two other Northern States show sifcns of going far Fillmore, he will carry Georgia by lü,000 majority. The reaction in that State ia tremendous. I think he will carry Ark ansas, any way. Of course he will Ten nessee and Lousiana.- If a Fremont tick et was started in Texas fas in Kentucky,) to take off the German vote from Buch anan, he would get Texas- by 4,000 ct 5,000. Florida is very safe. There is one thing you do cot perhaps know, Ihe Southern electors mill, vith' out doubt, throw their rote for eitlzr Buchanan or Fillmore if by doing so, they find after the election, they con drfeat Fremont in thet vay only.
