Crouse, proprietor of the Franklin House, and

Mr.:Crouse and Mr.:Cunningham were return

run as Breckinridge fusion anti-straight-out
Douglas, anti-introducing the Presidential
questionlinto the:County Convention, and in
favor of :compromising the National organza-
Lion, to :gain a local victory for two or three
county offices, and:of going it blind generally
to catch a class of voters who always wait to
he told how to vote. Such voters too often
hold thn:halance of power in all towns, and
in the hands of unscrupulous men can be
used successfully, as in the contest on Satur
day, to vote down . the intelligent and true
Democrats. We venture the assertion, with
out the fear of contradiction from any ,gen
tlemen, that one-third of the men who voted
for Miller and Crouse on Saturday night did
not know that there was any other question
involved in the contest other than the success
of the men they voted for. We are justified
in going further, and in saying, that some of
these voters did not know that the Democrat
ic party had as yet made a nomination for
the Presidency. It should not be so, the
poorest man has opportunities of knowing the
politics of the day, and we hope they will no
longer depend upon the say-so of any man,
but inform themselves correctly, and at fu
ture elections vote as freemen should vote,
free of dictation from the unprincipled men
who are over ready to deceive the uninformed
and unsuspecting.
The meanest men are those who can be
induced to vote with both political parties on
the same evening. And the next meanest
are those who leave their party for an eve
ning to assist in disorganizing an opposite
party. We are glad none of either of such
recorded their vute3 for the Dongl (I?"(e,:vat”S.
I.Ve would rather take defeat than be success
ful with their vole 3. The true Douglas no
tional Democrats of iluntbig,,don sinm!tl feel
proud of the straight-out vote they polled on
Saturday, against all tricks, deceptions, false
hoods, & - ,c. &c., of the Breckinridge disor
ganizers. Stand to your arms, Democrats,
the Northern tools of the Southern Disunion
ists will be compelled to take the water neck
deep long before th2y succeed in electing
either Dreckinridge or Lincoln.

The Massacres in Syria
Idler fi•o;n t7e American Consul at Beyrout.
The following, letter was read at the Month
ly Concert of prayer fur Missions, in Provi
ilenco, It. 1.. on the 4th instant :
BEYnOtT, SYRIA, Thursday,
June 28, 1860.
My DEAR. Stu :—You have doubtless heard
of horrible massacres that have just been
perpetrated upon the poor Christians of Mount
Lebanon by the Druses, aided in some cases
by Turkish soldiery.
A few facts may give you an adequate idea
of the present state of things in Syria. The
American Missionaries have estimated the
loss sustained by the Christians at 10,500,
and that of the Druses about 1200. The in
habitants of the Christians towns of Deir it
Komr and ILtsiceiya were brutally slaugh
tered in cold blood, after a full surrender had
been made. Thirty or forty convents have
been plundered and burned, and the monks
were put to death, some of whom were French.
Nearly one hundred villages have been
burned, and the crops of the peasantry de
stroyed. Many churches also have been
burned—among them the American Mission
Chapel at llasreeiya, and the school-house at
Deir it Komr.
The facts are enough to strike the civilized
world with terror ' • but there is yet something
to be told. It is believed that not less than
- sixty thousand Christians are now homeless
and starving, and have no other hope for sub
sistence than the charity of the Christian
world. More than 5000 fugitives have been
supported by the consuls, misssionaries, mer
chants and convents of Beyrout; but this is
only a temporary arrangement. Something
must be done for the starving, homeless
thousands who are now biding in caves and
other secret places, until peace shall be de
clared. Beyrout is no louger a place of safe
ty for Christians. Moslem fanaticism is now
fully aroused, and the Turkish Government
has found it necessary to station a platoon of
soldiers in every consul's house for their pro
te3tion. Thousands of the Christian refu
gees, and large numbers of the native resi
dents, have fled the country. Indeed, the
land is full of misery and the deepest woe.
American missionaries, aided by the guards
from the American Consulate, have brought
away many poor, besieged and persecuted
Christians, whose lives have been thus pre
served ; and the English vessels of war have
picked up about 2000 fugitives, many wound
ed women and children, who had escaped to
the seacoast—and there is still work for them
to do.
'What can be done in the United States for
these famishing widows and orphans ? I will
say nothing now of vengeance, for the Eu
ropean powers will no doubt exact justice for
this great crime ; hot humanity calls upon
me not only to distribute bread to the crowds
around my house, but to present their cause
to my countrymen, and to arouse their sym
pathies in behalf of this persecuted people.
The King of Greece has sent a sum of
money for their present relief, and effhrts are
I made elsewhere to collect money for
that ohjet.t. America sent food to Ireland
and to Greece, and will not something be
done for the Christians of Syria?
Respect Cully and truly yours,
Rev. Francis Wayland, B. D.
Horrible Cruelties in Rome and Naples.
.I.‘'Lkrl.F.S, July am horror-stricken by
what I IlaVO.
.inst heard and seen, and before
the incidents fade from my mind I will re
peat them in detail. The public have dis
credited some of my statements as exaggera
ted, and yet I have always persisted in say
ing that it, was impossible to paint in colors
too deep what was happening every clay in
this lovely country. Let then the time serv
ers, the moral cowards of society, the re-att
tionists, listen to the following details. As
soon as the constitution was framed and am
nesly had opened the prison doors, it was
noised ahroad that a man who had been shut
on in secret was still confined in the prison
of San Francisco. lie was taken thence,
by some young men who had also been con
fined there, and was benevolently received in
his own house by the advocate Pasquale Ar
enare, who has clothed and fed him ever
since. The poor victim of oppression has
created great interest bore. and among others
Mr. Elliott and the Marchese Villamarina
have been to visit him. I have done the
same, and the following harrowing story I
have received from his own lips, in the pres
ence of Arenare, of a Neapolitan friend, and
of a foreign consul.
I landed in Genoa from Du,ston somewhere
in Mg, and wishing to see the South of Italy
traveled till I came near 'Viterbo, when I was
cautioned not to go to Rome ; but I still per
severed in my intention of doing so, when I
was arrested as not having a passport and
carried to the Eternal City, where I was
placed in the Carcere Nuevo. Not satisfied
with the report which I gave of myself, I was
tortured fur three months as follows; My
hands and arms were hound together, and
then, by ropes tied round the upper part of
the arms, they were drawn back till my
breast protruded and my bones sounded
"Crick ! Crick 1" There was another species
of torment practiced upon me, which was
this. At night, while sleeping, the door was
secretly opened, and buckets of water were
thrown over my body. How I survived it, I
cannot tell ; the keepers were astonished, and
said they never had had such an instance ;
"But you will never get out alive," said the
Corporale Rosalio. I replied that I never ex
pected so to do, and prayed for the angel of
death to come. The worst torture of all,
however, was the prison itself, a room into
which a few rays of light struggled from
above, and the stench of which—for it had
been used by the jailers as a privy—was as
bad as death. For three months I suffered
thus, and then, without any reason assigned,
was taken from it and placed always alone
in a room called the Salone del Preti, a large
airy room, and was well fed and well treated
for 21 months more. I was the prisoner of
the Cardinal Secretary .An tonelli. About the
middle of 1855, again without any reason
being given, I was sent off to Naples ; was
placed first in the Vicaria, and afterwards in
San Francisco, in a small close room, where
I have been detained for four years and a
half. I was questioned on several occasions,
and at last refused to answer, saying that my
persecutors already knew what I had to say ;
that I was unjustly and illegally confined,
and nothing should compel me to utter an
other word. On another occasion I was
called before Bianchini, the director of police,
who interrogated me. I appealed against my
sufferings, and all the reply I received was,
" Fit bent! T r Lent!" from a Christian man
to one suffering as I was! I have been asked
to send a .supplica, for my liberation, but my
invariable answer was, " I will die first, nev
er will I ask anything of this Government."
When first I arrived here I had a little money,
which for a short time procured me better
food than the prison fare, and then by de
grees I sold my clothes. At last I sold, at
times, my black bread to have a little salt to
sprinkle over my beans, and sometimes to
procure some incense to relieve the horrid
stench of my prison. *As for water for pur
poses of cleanliness it was never supplied me,
and all that I could do was to dip one of my
own rags in a jug of drinking water and
wash some portions of my body. During
the day I could repose, but at night I was
covered with black beetles, fleas and lice, and
every conceivable species of vermin. I ex
pected death and desired and prayed for it
as a relief, but it never came. My clothes
were at last so reduced that I was all but
naked, and so I have passed four summers
and winters pacing up and down my narrow
chamber. I will show you my prison dress,
said he, and going out he returned in a few
minutes. It might have stood as a model
Lazarus risen from the tomb. The lower
part of his body was covered with a thin
pair of brown drawers, nothing more; on
his feet were a pair of shoes with the soles
and upper leathers all in holes. He had no
shirt, but over the upper part of his body
was thrown a rag, something like a coarse
kitchen towel, one corner of which he had
placed on his head, and as the long elfin
locks which had not been cut for many years,
hung down far below his shoulders, he ap
peared more like a brute beast than a chris
tian man. See this rag, said he, how I have
botched it I This was my dress, and so clad
I paced up and down my solitary den.—
When I heard of his state, said the bevelent
Arenare—whose name should be known and
honored—l sent him some clothes, otherwise
he could not have left his prison ; and when
he entered my house I thought I had never
witnessed such a sight. He was supported
by two persons, for he could scarcely walk,
and stared about, exclaiming, "Where am
I?" He was evidently lost. He has some
what recovered in appearance, but his eyes
are still half closed, as though unaccustomed
to the light, and the indications of suffering
are unmistakable. " You are astonished by
what you have seen," said a friend who was
with me, " and yet in the Vicaria I have seen
hundreds of such sights."
Case of Deception
The neighborhood of Hopewell School
House, in Charlestown, Chester county, was
in quite an excited state last week. About
three weeks ago, a. young girl, about 17 years
old, came to the residence of Wm. Snyder,
near the above place, stating that she was
destitute, and that she had been abandoned
by her husband in Philadelphia. Employ
ment was given her. On Wednesday after
noon, when Mr. Snyder came from the field
to his supper, the girl came to him in appa
rently great alarm, and said that a strange
man had visited the house and demanded
some meney, and on receiving none, he had
gone, away angry, and making some threats.
In the evening, she told Mr. Snyder that the
man had been there again, and went away
saying he would murder the family and fire
all the I,uildings on the premises. She said
the last she saw of him, he was standing in
the barn door, and that she thought he was
concealed somewhere about the barn. Sev
eral of the neighbors offered their services,
and search was commenced. After throwing
nearly all the wheat from one of the mows, -
and running long pointed iron rods down into
the hay, without finding any one, the search
was abandoned, and several persons were put
on guard to watch the premises during the
night; but no one made their appearance.—
The nest morning the girl found some his-
cuits hid under some hay in the barn, which
she brought out, saying she would not go back
to milk unless some one went with her. One
of the neighbors therefore went with her.—
While in the barn the girl found a letter,
which she opened and read, in which was
stated that be, " the man," was concealed in
the barn during the search for him, and that
he would have revenge on the persons that
hunted for him. The person who accompa
nied the girl to the barn, examined the letter
and found it to be written on a leaf torn from
a book. Tie at once suspicioned the girl as
being the author of it, as no one else had seen
the man about, or found anything, except
her. A number of books were examined at
the house, in one of which was found the
place where the leaf had been torn out. The
girl was accused of writing it, when she went
into hysterics and fell to the floor. Various
remedies were applied, but they bad no effect.
Some suggested that she might be playing
" possum." Under that supposition she was
left alone and a watch kept on the outside of
the door. As soon as she found herself alone
she "come to," but hearing some one ap
proaching she suddenly bad a " relapse."—
She was soon made to understand that such
kind of things would not answer any longer.
She plead guilty to all the charges against
her, but would give no satisfactory reason for
her conduct. On account of her age and des
titute condition, she was allowed to go on her
way without any other punishment. At the
time Mr. Snyder had considerable amount of
money in the house, and the supposition is
that the girl knew of its whereabouts, and
thinking by raising the alarm she did, she
could procure it and the blame would be
thrown on the man she stated had called at
the house,-Record.
MAN. there is any one characteristic in
the life of a public man that merits the ap
probation of both friend and foe it is an open,
frank; undisguised course—one divested of
the trickery and cunning so usual in politi
cians. In this respect we are proud of Ste
phen A. Douglas, and prouder still to hear
his old friends and neighbors, who have stood
by his side from early manhood to the pres
ent time bearing evidence of such traits of
character. In a speech at Boston last week,
Col. Richardson, of 111., in speaking of Mr.
Douglas, remarked
"I have known him from my earliest man
hood ;to this hour we have been friends. I
can say of him what I can say of but few
men on earth—we have acted together with
interests sometimes conflicting, with views
sometimes opposed, but in all my life he has
never deceived me. It is not remarkable, fel
low-citszens, that I stand pledged to his for
tune. I know you can commit this govern
ment to him safely. He has the head to dis
cern the right, and he has the courage to
march to it, whatever dangers may threaten.
If there is one duty that wo owe to the past,
to the future and to God, it is that we trans
mit this government, with all its blessings to
our children as our fathers bequeathed it to
us ; and in Stephen A. Douglas there is a
safe repository of this great legacy." (Groat
The Disunion Candidates.
Quite a number of the Southern supportes
of Breckinridge and Lane not only make no
secret of their hostility to the Union, but
openly state their chief reason for advocating
the Secession nominees to be that they be
lieve such a course best calculated to secure
a dissolution of the Confederacy. Thus, nne
of their organs in Alabama, the Camden Reg
ister, says :
" We run up our flag to-day for Breckin
ridge and Lane,.the Democratic nominees for
President and Vice President of the United
States. We have unwaveringly concluded
for the last ten years that it would be better
(for all concerned) to make two or more dis
tinct G 02:C1'71111 ents of the territory comprising
the United Stales of America, and that such
will ultimately be done there can be no sort
of doubt ; but it should be done with fairness
and justice to every section of the Union ; and
believing that the party to which we belong
is the only reliable one to carry out this meas
ure, and secure all her rights, we intend to
battle for its principles to the fullest extent of
our ability."
This is the first ticket ever presented for
the suffrages of the American people claiming
to have a reasonable prospect of securing a
single electoral vote, which has been boldly
sustained by any considerable body of its sup
porters as a disunion ticket. The old Aboli
tion Presidential tickets thrt were run in the
Northern States previous to the formation of
the Republican party might also properly be
considered disunion tickets, as most of those
who sustained them freely acknowledged that
they desired a dissolution of the Union, and
even petitioned Congress on the subject—but
they did not receive more than a few thous
votes in any State.
The Southern disunion candidates deserve
no more respect or support from the Democ
racy of the Union, nor from the conservative
men of any narty than the Abolition candi
dates of 1840 and 1844. The friends of the
former want to dissolve the Union now be
cause they love the ultraisms of slavery better
than our existing form of National Govern
ment, and the friends of the latter desired the
same end, because their• ultra Abolition
ideas overruled all other considerations.—
" Extremes meet," and it is curious to notice
this remarkable similarity of action between
the fire-eaters and the ultra Abolitionists.—
The Press.
How are the Mighty Fallen !
If ever the demon of discord, rebellion,
treason to the Union was severely rebuked it
was so in the recent elections. Personified in
John C. Breckinridge, it has been denounced
and spurned by the conservative people of
the South wherever a. test has been made, as
in Kentucky and Missouri, where the love of
the Union is stronger than blood, and degen
erate sons find no favor in the eyes of patri
otic:fathers, or kinsmen, or neighbors. Ken
tucky, which but last year elected a Demo
cratic Governor and Assembly, and still more
recently returned her recreant son to the Uni
ted States Senate, has now stamped the infa
mous brand of traitor upon his brow, prefer
ring a political foe, true to the Union, to a
professed but treacherous and perfidious
member of the Democratic household. Look
ing upon John C. Breckinridge as a bolter
from the party, as a dangerous and unprinci
pled disorganizer, as the associate and dupe.
if not a leader and plotter of Disunionists,
the Democracy of Kentucky have crushed
with their heels the head of the Viper which
had been warmed to life in their bosoms.—
They have said to their degenerate son, "Go
you are no longer of us ; you have betrayed
and deserted your friends, your party, and
your country ; you are worse than Burr, more
de, , Tijable than Arnold—go ! the milk of our
kindness has turned into gall—our friend
ship into intense hatred—go I and the curses
of a betrayed country and party go with
you!" This is the language of Kentucky to
,John C. Breckinridge ;and it has been echoed
by Missouri, and will be re-echoed by every
Southern State but that pestilent State, South
Carolina, wherever the test is made. Even
in North Carolina and Arkansas, where there
was no division of the party at the recent
elections, the moral effects of the treason of
Breckinridge and his associate disunionists
is discernable in the reduced majorities of the
party. When the Douglas strength in the
Southern States shall be sifted out on separ
ate Electoral Tickets, there will not be a
show for the miserable renegade anywhere
but in South Carolina, and we doubt whether
even she is degenerate enough to vote for
him. His fate is sealed. .11arrisbitrg Slate
Reign of Terror in the Departments.
Under this caption the Washington Slates
and Union writes as follows:
We have heard from several that on Wed
nesday a person known as the confidential
friend of llon. Jacob Thompson was engaged
in obtaining subscriptions for the Breckin
ridge party from clerks, &c., in the Depart
ment of the Interior. It is stated that Mr.
Thompson headed the list with a subscription
of $5OO, and then it was carried to heads of
bureaus and of divisions, and to leading
clerks, who, it is said, agree to give $5 per
month during the canvass. Clerks with minor
salaries may not be expected to give more
than $2 or $3 a month ; but the aggregate
sums will be immense, as there are not less
than twelve hundred clerks who will be sub
ject to the forced contribution. If the thing
is carried out as it has been begun, not less
than $30,000 will he raised in the Department
alone—a larger sum, probably, than any Na
tional Democratic Committee, or any other
National Committee has ever had at this point.
Join to this, like contributions from cus
tom house officers, postmasters, clerks in
postoffices, government contractors, wealthy
disunionists of the South, and from rich
Northern dough-faces, and a fund will bo
raised of hundreds of thousands of dollars—
perhaps millions. What shall we then see ?
" Men and presses bought up
,like cattle in
the market." It will all be powerless upon the
masses, and it remains to be seen whether
there are enough mercenary cattle to thwart
the public will. It will be a fit sequel to the
Buchanan game to cheat Judge Douglas out
of the nomination, by thrusting towering of
fice-holders upon the National Convention,
and by buying up with hope of office or plun
der, a set of mercenary wretches who are
now pilloried in the public thoUght.
