e considered defective, since he had taken the horses with the slaves whom he liberated in Western Missouri, finding it necessary to his success that the slaves should have horses, and that the masters should not. But, he added, when telling the story afterward, they brought a very excellent price. Early in April following, he was in Ashtabula County, Ohio, sick of the ague. He visited his family in Essex County, New York, toward the end of that month. In May, he was in New York City, Rochester, and Boston, where he learned to manufacture crackers. On the 3d of June, he was at Collinsville, Conn., where he closed a contract for a thousand pikes, that he had ordered some time before. He was soon afterward again in Northern Ohio, and in Western Pennsylvania, proceeding by Pittsburg and Bedford to Chambersburg, where he remained several days. He was in Hagerstown, Md., on the 30th, where he registered his name as Smith, and two sons, from Western New York. He told his landlord
spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new--North as well as South. This almost prophetic statement, from one born in Kentucky, and who had been known, prior to the appearance of the Dred Scott decision, as a rather conservative Whig, was put forth, more than four months before Gov. Seward, At Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 25, 1858. as if under a like pre-monition of coming events, said: These antagonistic systems are continually coming into closer contact, and collision results. Shall I tell you what this collision means? They who think that it is accidental, unnecessary, the work of interested or fanatical agitators, and therefore ephemeral, mistake the case altogether. It is an irrepressible conflict between opposing and enduring forces; and it means that the United States must and will,
the evils — and they are not imaginary — that we desire to avort. But, conscious of the feebleness of a single voice in such a tempest, there is little to expect but to abide its peltings. The Republican party now represents one side of a controversy fraught with the safety and welfare of this Government and nation. As an individual, we shall endeavor to do our duty; and, as we understand it, that duty does not consist in folded arms, or sealed ears, or closed eyes. Even if, as say our Rochester and Syracuse friends — and they are such, in the trust meaning of the word — the North stands, in all respects, blameless in this controversy, much is needed to correct the impression of the Southern people; many of whom, truly informed, would join us in defending the Union. We do not mistake the mission of the Republican party in assuming that, while defending free territory from aggression, it maintains and upholds the supremacy of the Constitution and laws. The people have intrusted

Doc. 142.-the designs of the Nationals, their object being gradually avowed. The cloven foot of the demon of abolition is fast being exposed, and every day brings to light some new fact going to show that the true animus of the Lincoln war upon the South is a desire to exterminate the institution of slavery. It has been comparatively but a short time since the wily Seward, speaking as the oracle of his party, proclaimed the doctrine of the irrepressible conflict at Rochester, prophesying the near approach of the millennium of abolitionism, when the soil of America would not be pressed by the foot of a slave. Subsequently, and but a few brief months back, Mr Lincoln propagated the hieroglyphic thought that very soon artificial weights would be lifted from the shoulders of all men. These authoritative utterances, emanating from men who occupy the highest official positions in their Government, can well be regarded as pregnant with significance. But later occurrences are no
Mrs. Curtis.--The female prisoner brought to this city on Wednesday, proves to be a Mrs. Curtis, of Rochester, N. Y., sister of a member of the Rochester regiment. She is quite young, but by no means prepossessing. The sleeves of her dress are ornamented with velvet tape chevrons, and the jockey hat which she wears is tucked up on one side with a brass bugle, indicating military associations. She is quite talkative, and does not disguise her animosity against the South. Lodgings have been provided for her in a private house.--Richmond Whig.
emy at or near Morgantown, and took five or six prisoners--how many were killed and wounded we did not learn. Col. McHenry lost one man, but drove the enemy off. About the same time, Capt. Neerer, who is stationed with a party of twenty men at Rochester, his men all armed with Colt's revolving rifles, had a skirmish with a largely superior force of the enemy in the vicinity of Rochester, but with what result we have not yet learned. Col. Burbridge, in his attack, had one man wounded, but lostRochester, but with what result we have not yet learned. Col. Burbridge, in his attack, had one man wounded, but lost none. We believe these particulars to be entirely reliable, and think that further reports will only confirm last Tuesday's work as a day of glorious achievements. The marching, as Col. Burbridge did, with about three hundred men from Owensboro to Woodbury, a distance of sixty or seventy miles, in two days--attacking and utterly routing a force of five hundred of the enemy within less than eighteen miles of Buckner's Headquarters at Bowling Green, where he is reported to have a very heavy fo

There were placed fairly in a tin or ballot box, a cap covering it, and then well shaken. The drawer appointed by the General was the Hon. Alfred Ely, M. C., of Rochester, N. Y. It so happened that the said lot fell on Michael Corcoran, colonel of the Sixty-ninth regiment New York State Militia, now at Castle Pinckney, near Charleston, S. C. Then the other five colonels were to stand with others next in rank to them against and in lieu of the other thirteen under trial for piracy, and also to be dealt with accordingly. The officers next in rank, to make up the thirteen, are: Major Potter, Thirty-eighth regiment N. Y. Volunteers. Lieut.-Col. Neff, Second Ke
Gen. Buckner, at Rochester, on Green River, Ky., forcibly took a fine yoke of oxen and other property from the Rev. Mr. Wiggins, a worthy clergyman, and paid him with a three hundred dollar check on the Southern Bank at Russellville, where he hadn't funds to the amount of a dollar. To say nothing of the epauletted rascal's forcible seizure of the property, his giving a check upon a bank in which he had no money deposited was a penitentiary offence under our laws. We hope the officers of justice in that section will do their duty. We are well aware, that if Buckner shall be put to hard work at Frankfort in the service of the State, his friend the Governor will let him loose, but he should be sent there anyhow.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
