The two political heresies Secession and Abtitionism, have trach had able advo cates i 11 both sections of our country in the Senate and ii Congress. The South boasta of her secession leaden, Davis, Toombs, Cobb, Wise.and a host of others, who have engaged (o praotically demon strate their heresy. In the north, we have such champions as Sumner, did dings Wade, Chandler, and Hal", who boldly fuced their brother heretics from tha South on the floor of the Senate and the House ; but now, when they have brought the present tnlamity upon the nation, these northern champions reCure to practically engage in carrying out their Abolition theory. Unlike their allies in the South, who say corns they meanly skulk about their homes urging men to 50 I The blustering courage formerly ex hibited by them on the floor of Congress seems to hare totally evaporated. It would look much better for Mr. umner and Lis colaborers here in the north, to go and meet their former equal upon the field of carnage, and thereby demonstrate to the whole country the honesty of their purpose. Thus, while Davis, Toombs, Wise k Co., ara In tha front rank of their Army, we find such patriots (!) -is Sum ner, Ureely, Wtde A Co., babbling about home, and laboring zealously lo bring about a division in the North ; similar to that inaugurated by them bet'veon the North and the South. If as Mr. Sumner alleges iu his speech, this wur must re sult in the emancipation of tho negroes and mutt bo proteoulcd with that result in view, why doei he not step forward and lead a regiment ''on to Richmond? ' and thus demonstrate the feasibility of hit AMilion heresy. One of two things is putent in the con duct of Mr. Sumner and his colaborers here in the North, they have cither full confidence that the Administration at Washington will do for them what they desirA and claim as a duty upon the pint of the government to free the slaves ; or, they are demagogues and cowards of tho meanest kind.

"NO UNION H UH SLAVEHOLDERS."

He was then a Democrat, and has continued a faithful and devoted advocate of the principles of the National Democ racy from that day to this, through sun shine and stotm. Like most other editors of Democratic papers in Pennsylvania who had the independence to maintain the in disibility of the Democratic party last spring, Col.

Montgomery was the leader of the notorious Jay ll.uvk party, during the Kansas troubles, and has lived the life of a murderer and highway robber ever since. Hereafter, ho-vevcr, he can con tinue his business in a legal form, as he now holds a commission from Washing ton, and in connection with Brown they will, no doubt, continue their old busi ness in a lagal way.

We landed under a steep bauk, 100 foet high.covered with rocks and jungle Scrambling up tha bank, we found an open fiiel-l ol six acres, with thick woods on three sides, out of which came a con stant, irregular firing from the enemy.
