Arrest of a Kidnapper at Worcester.
Worcester, Monday, Oct. 30.
( Asa O. Bu'.man, the notorious kidnapper of
Thomas Sims and Anthony Bums, was discovered
i " booked" at the American H<>u*e, in this city,
yesterday, and immediately posted throughout the
ci'y. In die evening a vigilance committee of cit
izens snrroun 'ed the hotel and watched Butman'*
movements, lie flourished a pisiol ai ibern and
threatened to use it, whereupon a warrant was is
sued, and he was immediately artested, and this
forenoon brought bpfore .the Poiice Court charged
with carrying concealed weapons.
' The case was postponed two weeks, and he was
1 required to give bonds for his appearance A large
1 and excited crowd gathered around the Court room
and it became evident that Bntman'a life was in
| danger, Mr. Geo. F. Hoar, Free-Soiler, and son of
' the venerable Samuel Hoar, who was driven out
i ot South Carolina, appealed to ihe crowd to let the
1 kidnapper go i:. sateiy out of the city Tt.e crowd
; gave way, and Bu'man, occompanipd by a strong
! guard, went to the depot, followed by the popu
j lace, where the colored men fell upon him, and
would undoubtedly have takpn his life but (or ihe
, interference of Martin Smwell, James A (lowland.
| Mr. Hoar, Ilev. W. Higginson and Stephen S. Fos
i ter, ail Abolitionists.
Butman was hastened into acarriage, accompan
ied by Mr. Higginson. ami thus escaped with his
life. M' Higginson was considerably cm by the
j missies thrown at the carriage, and Butman was
I pelted with rotien eggs and stones, and was kicked
and beaten almost 10 death. He promised never to
visit Worcester again, and probably wdl not. He
is now out of harm sway.

Kansas.—A Correspondent of the Ledger, a gen
tleman who left that city with Governor Ueeder
writes from Fort Leavensworth on the 12th inst.
staling that the whole party had arrived, after a
very pleasant trip. Governor Reeder has made
Fort Leavenworth his resting place for tiie present,
and has already showed his deteiminalion to
1 cute the laws, by holding some squatters to bail
i who had been fighting each other. Our rorrespon
! dent says Kansas requires an incredible amount ol
labor and severe privations to make it a bright par
j ticular s'ar of thei'nion.

The la'e elections have alarmed the Washingion
L'livn. The confident and defiant tone it has been
accustomed to assume, is giving way before the
popular voice. It now parades the last resdrt of
Slavery—ptetcndeil danger to the I'nion. It has
laid down three results as likely to sever the con
federacy, one ot which is, whenever an united
N'crth shall refuse admission to a State because of
the recognition ol Slavery in its Constitution. The
National Intelligencer rebukes the treasonable cal
culations of the Union in a sensible and truthful ar i
tide in which OCCUIB the following paragraph : j
*• The overwhelming reverses which the passage j
of die Nebraska law has brought upon the Admin- j
istratton party in the non-slave holding States have
*et the Washington Union lo" calculating the chan
ces of the continuance of the Tederal Union." This
is a wretched business for any journal, but worse
than all for the official journal and organ of the
Government. Blighted ambition has driven many
H man to treason, but we entreat our official neigh
bor to leave all calculations of the value of the Un
ion, and all speculations upon the nature of the
events which are to destroy it, if they shall ever
occur, to inveterate nuUifiers and abolitionists, who
" pant for the dissolution of the Union as the hart
panteth for the water brooks." We hold it little
1-ss than treason even to "imagine the death of the .
Union."' -
It has been uniformly the custom of the South j
when their anogant pretensions have been oppos- j
ed, to threaten to dissolve the Union—while their j
Northern adjuncts and tools, took up the cry of j
" woll," and began to calculate the danger. So
often has this been done, that the North has be
come accustomed to it, and has begun in turn to
consider the probabilities of such an even', and
which section would be the loser thereby. The
inves igation has shown that the South has ail to
lose, ami nothing lo gain, by a dissolution ol the
Union. The value ol their peculiar property itsell,
depends in a great measure, upon the security
which a continuance of the Union gives.
The occupation of the Union savers and of those
who think to alarm-the North by pretended danger
lo the Union, is gone. The patriotism of that sec
lion, will abide by the Union to the last, and lo a
sacred observance ol the Compromises ot the Con
stitution. No recreant hand will aver bo raised lor
the destruction ol either—but when our Southern
brethren see fit to go out of the Union, because
Slavery shall not be nationalized, they will be al
lowed to depart. Such a result there is no danger
lo apprehend. The South is too well aware of the
advantages riiey reap from the Union—they will
continue to blus'.or and threaten, but they have no
erious thoughts ol separating a band uniting them
to a section, which protects them in the possession
of their human chatles, carries their inail*, fortifies
iheir seaports, and bears the burdens of the govern
mental taxation.
CONVICTION or BEALE. —The trial of Bealp, of
Philadelphia, for an alledged rape on Miss Mudge,
terminated in ihe jury finding a verdict of guilty,
and recommending him to mercy. The punish
ment for the offence is confinement al hard labor,
for not less than two, nor more than twelve years
Divid Taul Brown,E*q., counsel for Beale, filed
fifeen reasons for a new trial • amonst others, that
ihe verdict was against tha law and evidence ; that
the jury was prejudiced by irrelevant statements,
and did not find t : ieir verdict on the evidence ad
Jnced before the court; that they indulged in li
quor during the trial, that some of the jury declar
ed their minds were made up before heating the
evidence. The argument of the counsel'will com

port have sent ns a new work, fresh from the pro
lific pen ol Mrs. Gore, who, we are glad to say,
has many reaJers among us. It may appear
strange rhat we should rejoice in the success of a
mere novel writer, but being compelled lo admit
that the popular tas'e " ever runneth thitherward,"
it is merely mailer of gratutation that works sucli
as every day published works Irom which the
reader derives nerher advantage or profit, it merely
is w;e in the press to call attention to those which
are calculated to afford both. To all novel readers
we would simply simply say—" If you must read
novels, read good ones, and ot those who claim
that distinctive title we certainly know none whose
pretentions are belter founded than Mrs. Gore's,
and of her works none certainly are equal to this,
latest production."

DAY OF THANK-GIVING —By some means an un

papers, that the Governor had set apart Thursday,
the 30 h of November, as a day of Thanksgiving
and Praise to Almighty God, in this Common
wealth. It is an error. The fourth Thursday in
November, bping the 23d ol the mortih, has been

upright stick, about eight inches long, and on the
top of the stick a sun glass was placed. So arrang

grain. Cn cutting the grain, the mowers struck
the upright slick, and discovered that the shingles
had ignited, and was half consumed, and that the
grass for a few feel around had been burned, but had

The Foreign \'ew*.
Tlip news by the Pacific, which arrived at New
\ ork Monday morning, is not of special interest or
importance No further intelligence has been re
ceived Irom the Crimea, though the London papers
continue to publish details of the battle ol the
Alma, mainly Irom private letters of officers and
others engaged, which will be read with interest.
The position of the German States continues doubt
ful, and the opinion is now expressed that the final
decision of Austria in the matter need not be ex
pected until next Spring. Prussia is demonstrat
ing more and more clearly her resolution not to
join the Western Powers against Russia, and spec
ulations are indulged that the Allies may be com
pelled to fight her armies on the Rhine.
The hope was indulged that the Pacific mi°ht
possibly bring intelligence of the arrival
some vessel which had picked up the missing boats
ol the Arctic. No further information of the catas

conveyed by the Cleopatra which arrived on the

United State* Senator.
It being now ascertained that a majority of the
Pennsylvania Legislature on joint ballot, will be
Anti-Nebraska, the selection of a United Slates Se- j
nator in place of Hon James Cooper, whose term
expires on the 4th of March next, i* beginning to
be discussed. Among the Whigs, Judge Conrad,
of Philadelphia, Gen William Larimer, of I ma
burg, Ex-Governor Johnston, and Hon ItuuJeus
Stevens, are talked of. There are many reasons
why in our opinion, the Free-Soil men, without
distinction of party should unite on DAVID WII.MOT
tor thai office, provided he will accept n No man
in die Sa'e has labored mote faithfully orefficient
ly lor the cause of freedom than Judge Wilmot
For his straight forward course and manly adhe- j
rence to principle, he has been denounced by die
hireling presses ot the Administration, and threat
ened with poli'ical arunhilH'ion. When it was
found that he chose to follow the guidance of pi in
ciple rather than the behests of pat'y, as if a' a pre
concerted signal, the pack opened upon, htm, in
full cry, and evinced a fixed determination to hunt
him, io death. It was even said that by deserting
his party, he had already sealed his own doom
But in truth, instead of his having deserted his par
ty, he has only maintained the principles that
made him what he is, and his party—or rather 'he
party leaders—have deserted him. His oourse has
been approved and ralified by the people of Penn
sylvania, and most emphatically by ihe people ol
his own district. Pollock's majority in this Con
gressional District is 4,094! oragainover Pierce's
vote ot 6 550 Does thai look like Wilmoi'e
being deserted by the people? He was never so
popular—never so strong as now ; and fortified as
he is in his own integrity and the confidence of the j
people, those pisjrny toes who have attacked him
with so much vehemence, cannot injure him, but j
will be themselves slain by the recoil.
It is not for his own sake that we advoca'e Judge '
Wilmot's election to the Senate," but because of the
effect of his taking a seat there at this crisis, and of
the influence he would exert in the National coun- ;
cils. The struggle between Freedom and Slavery
is not at an end. The Slavocrary are playing a
desperate game foi supremacy, and they will fight
to the last. Every avenue through which they may
seek to make further encroachments, must be guard
ed, and for that purpose we must have vigilant sen
j tiriels on the bulwarks of freedom. We know of
no man who would be more keen-eyed to perceive
ve the danger or more prompt to sound the alarm,
than David Wilmot. The friends of freedom
throughout the North must look to i', thattheysend
such men—men true and fearless in their antagon
ism to slavery—and none others, to Congress.
We should glory more in the election of Judge
Wilmot to the Senate now, than in that of any
Whig in the S ate. It would demonstrate that the
maintenance of principles, arid not the resurrection
of a party, is our object; and it would tend to ce
ment together 'he Free-Soil men into a great and
| invincible Freedom party, with the power and the
; will to place Pennsylvania in such a position that
| hereafter it can never be a question with the sla
j very conspirators whether they may count on our
aid or our opposition. With Pollock for our Gov
i ernor and Wilmot in the Senate, they would know
; where to find us ; and should another occasion
! arise like that of the passage of the Nebraska bill,
j it would then be demonstrated whether or not

Our !Voxt t". S. Senator.
Soon after the passage of the Nebiaska bill, the
Administration papers grew insolent with success,
and chnckeid amazingly over the idea that, as Se
nators were chosen for a term of six years, and as
a largo majority of the Senate were friendly to the
afoiesaij infamous bill, the chances of its repeal
were " nowhere'' for the next six years. Perhaps
the results of the Northern elections will convince
those editors that it is not always safe to add insult
to injury, especially when the people are the in
jured party.
The Legislature of this S ate is anti-Nebraska in
both branches by a fair majority. The House
stands 74 known anti-Nebraska men to 59—®ome
opposed and some favorable. As an United Sena
j tor is to be chospn next winter, we hope the most
efficient anti Nebraska man in the State will be the
unanimous choice of that body. The national Sen
ate has been a refuge of the worst kind of fogyism
toe* long, and it is high time that it was thoroughly
renovated These are the times that try men's
principles—peculiar times, and peculiar men are
wanted to represent them. Pennsylvania® need to

TKF. GOVERNOH or UTAH -—The commission nn-
Jer which Brigbam Young held the office of Gov
ernor of Utah, expired on the 29 h ult.. and as it is
allegpd that for the last two years he virtually re
fused to recognize the government of the United
States having InrwarJed neither copies of the terri
torial laws nor the accounts of the expenditures of
the public appropria'ions, it is nppiehended by
some that there will be a terrible commotion in
" Mormon-dom," should he not be reappointed
Young, himself, in an address to the Mormons in
March last, said :
"We have got a territorial government, and 1
am and tcill he the governor. and no poxcer can hin
der it until the Lord Almighty says. " NEED NOT BE
GOVERNED ANT T.ONGER,'' and then I am willing to
yield another."
He goes on in the same address to deciare that
neither President Pierce nor any other President
could remove him, and intimates pretty strongly
that Judge Lynch world be in waiting fur any one
eoming there nnder pretence ol having authority to
assume I fie office of Governor. This is pretty bold
talk ; but Brigham Young, like many others before
him, will learn, should the President nof deem it
compatible with the public interest to appoint hira
that the " laws must be obeyed" despite the bia~-
gadocia and united opposition of a few zealots.
