great on one sejs· e n
the hour, and 0 asoio stu
pid amaze ne oth that we
take it as natural, as right, and as of
,ourse. We are rushing, sir, and
with rapid strides, from a constitu
rional government into a military
despotismn The constitution says
the freedom of speech and of the
press shallnot be abridged, yet, three
days ago, in the city of St. Louis, a
military officer with four hundred
s.Adiers-that was his warrant-went
into a newspaper office in that city,
removed the types, and declared that
the paper should be no longer pub
lished, and gave among other reasons, J
that it was fabricating reports injuri
ous to the United States soldiers in
Missouri. Is there a Senator here, a
citizen of this land, who will say that
the slightest color of authority ex
ists on the part of a military officer
for depriving a citizen of liberty or lip
property without a warrant of law, or
to, suppress the freedom of the press?
And we are told by.the s.'ame dis
pateh that the proprietors of the pa- ag
per submitted and intended to make
an appeal. To whom? To the ju- P1
dicial authorities? No sir. But to
Maj. Gen. Fremont, whnl he should
reach St. Louis. The civil authori
ties of; the country are paralized. and
practitcal martial law is being estab- '
lished'all over the land. The like
never happened in this country b.,- nt1
fore, andit would not be tolerated in
any couutrv, in, Europe, which pre. I:
tends to the .ejemcnts. of civilization po
and liberi'yv. Gt-orge WTaslhigton r

the war of this. Revolution without
martial law. 'Tho .President of the eil

John T. Beard, (the Ruby) was visi- t`
ted day before yesterday, by some of
light fingered gent, who proceeded to es
help himselfto seine tempting dollars, in
which lay sur.g in the drawer of the I,
countrr. After taking the money he h
proved himself -ome on the run. It sl
is not known who he was as ahe was a

When hope my heart with rapture fills,
And bids it to aspire,
I think of thee, then all its ills
1)o rapidly retire.
I think of thee when e'er the past,
With ho]ile's uand ti'ars combined,
And joys that tire too briglht to last,
Conme rushing or'e my mind.
I think of thee when e'er I dare
'T'o) hople for future bliss,
And ct',ol rti, g'r,-ater lpleasure share,
With a world like this
I thinitik fthee when fancy brings.
