ing/un> into pretty substantial practice. The tone of the Southern newspapers, when speaking of the wealthy, intelligent and patriotic North as one great anarchy, and of the Northern people as a godless mob of Puritans, Freelovers, Abolitionists, Mormons, Atheists and Amalgamationists, has given the gentlemen who have cast away the slave-whip for the sword quite a mistaken notion of our resources as well as of our character. Consequently, having said to us in the elegant language of Marshal Rynders. We do n't believe a word in your d — d philanthropy, they consider that by saying, so they have floored us. We beg leave to announce to them that they will find, no free-love in our fire-arms, no irreligion in our revolvers no theories in our bombardments no Mormonism in our musketry, no cant in our commissariat, and no niggardliness in our military chests. We are not wild Indians--we are not all mulattoes — we are not all mere shop-keepers — we are not all misers — we are not all mo
ulden--Now, gentlemen, we are told, upon high authority, that there is a certain class of men who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. Now, Virginia, which authorizes the buying of Christian men, separating them from their wives and children, from all the relations and associations amid whom they have lived for years, rolls up her eyes in holy horror when I would go to Africa, buy a savage, and introduce him to the blessings of civilization and Christianity. (Cheers arid laughter.) Capt. Rynders, of N. Y.--You can get one or two recruits from New York to join with you. The President.--The time of the gentleman has expired. (Cries of Go on! Go on! ) The President stated that, if it was the unanimous wish of the Convention, the gentleman could proceed. Mr. Gaulden.--Now, fellow-Democrats, the slave-trade in Virginia forms a mighty and powerful reason for its opposition to the African slave-trade, and in this remark I do not intend any disrespect to my friends from Virgi

He summoned Dan Sickles, and planned with him to have at once salutes of 100 guns fired in New York and Philadelphia in honor of Anderson's act, and to have telegrams in hundreds showered on the President, congratulating him as a second Jackson, and a saviour of the country by his firmness. Men and Memories, Mrs. J. R. Young, p. 25. These demonstrations were effectively made under the joint action of Sickles and John Russell Young in Washington, of Dougherty in Philadelphia, and of Rynders in New York. They worked upon the weak side of Buchanan's character, and Anderson was allowed to remain in Fort Sumter. Buchanan excused himself to the Carolinians by saying that he would have ordered Anderson back, had they given him time before themselves taking possession of Moultrie, and raising their flag over it. It was a poor excuse, but it was an occasion when any excuse would do. Passion was inflamed on both sides and recriminations began. The position occupied by Anderson was

ill be called, upon a State, and this indorsement of a madman. I can only say that I have spoken on this antislavery question before the American people thirty years; that I have seen the day when this same phase of popular feeling — rifles and force — was on the other side. You remember the first time I was ever privileged to stand on this platform by the magnanimous generosity of your clergyman, when New York was about to bully and crush out the freedom of speech at the dictation of Captain Rynders. From that day to this, the same braving of public thought has been going on from here to Kansas, until it bloomed in the events of the last three years. It has changed the whole face of the sentiment in these Northern States. You meet with the evidence of it everywhere. When the first news from Harper's Ferry came to Massachusetts, if you were riding in the cars, if you were walking in the streets, if you met a Democrat or a Whig or a Republican, no matter what his politics, it was

ow? Seymour's first act, when he assumed the Governorship, what was it? He fulfilled his bargain. He hurled his defiance at the Metropolitan Police, which kept him and his allies, conspirators, from carrying the Empire State into the hands of the Confederacy. These are the times when, as Macaulay says, The vermin burrowing in garrets and cellars show themselves of terrible importance. Who knows that such times may not come upon us? I have seen the day, in that city of New York, when Rynders dictated law to the Chief of Police, and Matsell obeyed him. For twenty years I have seen in your city the mob rule when they pleased. I have seen your Mayor order his police, in Faneuil Hall, to take off their badges and join the mob which clamored down free speech in that consecrated hall. You saw, two years ago, the State government reeling before the victims of the Tremont House and Parker House. The Governor complained then, as I am told he does now, that in the whole county he had

The Williamsburg tailors — of whom many hundreds just now have nothing to do — are to have a public meeting this week, to consult as to what is best to be done. If they have no work they cannot starve, they say, when the granaries of the country and the store-houses of New York are overflowing with plenty of food. Captain Rynders again turned up at the Toombs Police Court to-day, to respond to the charge of assault and battery upon Mr. Tappan, in the matter of the African boys. Judge Edmonds, on behalf of the prosecution, desired to withdraw the case, and the Court having no objections, it was so ordered. Before leaving the Court the Captain made a characteristic speech in self- defence, but there were but few to listen to him save the newspaper reporters! Much excitement exists in Brooklyn to-day, in con

The Fugitive slave from New York. --On Thursday last, as has been stated, a fugitive slave, from New York, was brought to Richmond, to be sent to his master, at Louisville, Ky. It appears that he was hired as steward on an Ohio steamer, and escaped to Canada; but returning to New York, was employed as porter in a store there. On Monday night he was arrested at the suit of his master's agent, and his employer, a Mr. Vall, immediately got out a writ of habeas corpus for the release of "John Thomas," that being his name. Marshal Rynders responded to it by producing in court the body of a John Thomas, colored man. This J. T., however, was another person, who had been in jail as a witness in a murder case since March last. The Judge decided that the writ was satisfied. In the meantime, the Marshal had placed the negro in a back and gotten him safely on board a Richmond steamer.
