of- this confederacy of peaceful States, find
themselves suddenly assailed by desperadoes,
and' that State slum'bering upon a volcano.

'the Staie of Virginia bus acted with sufficient
deliberation. There seems to, have been a
fair and deliberate trial. •I have had great
sympathy for the individual sufferers, but the
majesty of the lave must be vindicated. Dow

dissatisfied with our banking, or some other
inatieutions, had Made a similar descent upon

The American people are now called upon to
decide who they will serve—whether they -
will 'support - the constitution in its letter and

tO" Grow delivered bi, anti-slavery speech
on Monday evening, characterized, as usual,
by a gross, disreg,ard, of courtesy, decency,
and • truth; alleging among other absurd
falsehoods, first the DemoorMic party were
engaged in carrying on the foreign blare srade,
and were pledged to acquire slave territory
from other countries, by robbery and theft.—
He careful ,cot givea very direct opin
ion of Brown ;Aft called him crazy,eto., and
attempted to set up a full justification of hi,
acts, by rehearsing Kansas yarns. Had he
stated' the truth of Brown's Kansas career, he
would have shown that (as he went to Kansas
solely to fight,)tud not to settle, arld that
when there be became a 'cold blooded mur
derer before harm ever came to him or his),
the late affair was but a continuance of his
bloody schemes, in which be has always,beeri
backed op by Republican arms and money,
from Aid Societies and other soOrce.. We
think that an unequivocal opinion would have
been more satisfactory to all; ',but when be
spoke of Brown as RD "Avenging Angel," and
justified i his bloody stets at great length, he left
the iitipTresSion upon his bearers that be had
tot one word of disapprobation to utter; but
on the contrary wished it to be understood
that Brown did nothing wrong-. He called
BrOWn the "first fruits" of the repeal of the
Missouri- line; thus clearly intimating that it
was to be followed by mbre of the same sort.
We believe that a fair deduction from the
speech, altogether, is that Hon. Galosh& A.
Grow, would-be-Speaker of the House of Rep
resentatives, fully sympathises with Brown,
and endorses his acts. His mean blackguard
ism aboutsthe cowardice of Virgin* and the
South, is not 'worthy Af notice here. Let him
make that - charge to their faces.
A Bnsv . z COSDUCTOIL—Ao engineer oo the
Peonsyliacia railroad disoovired a small
child sitting in the middle of the track, ahead
of the train, playing, one day last week, and
instantly 'whistled down tueaks and reversed
the engine, but the "momentum 'of the train
was too great to ..sto - p before it reached the
child,. *Erich must have inevitably been
crashed to death but for the brave conduct
'of Daniel McCoy, the conductor; who ran to
'the front of the engine, crawled down on the
cow-catcher, and holding himself with one
band, leaned as far forward as possible, and
u he . approached the child, .with, a sweeping
blow of the, other bind hb threw it off the
track. It was the work of an instant, and
required a steady hand and ceol head to ac
complish it, but he was equal to the esaergen
cg .The was 'somewhat stunned and
bruised by the Operation; bit Wes uotserious
igr Last Monday evening-lifr. Grow ap
plied all the loir epithets hels.sanster of, to
the Susq's ,Conaty_ Democracy because the
latter approve the decision of the Supreme
Court in the bred .Scott case. But according
to bis interpretation , of that 'decision, - the
r court only ruled one point, viz: " thaeiregrimis
are not citizens." Assuming that this inter
pretation is correct„ the- Snag's County De
mocracy are censuredt by Mr. Grow 'because
they deny that tregraks;ire t . he equals of white
men, and 'affirm that the former are not citi
zens in the eye of the federal constitution.
Is tins affirmation supported by history And
a fair censtrnction of our national compact!'
If so, we deserve thanks instead of curses, for
pledging ourselves to, support the decision re
ferred, to. - • -
So far as we are concerned, we have no
hesitation in declaring, that we would not
discriminate against citizens because of Their
religious faith, birth place, or color. - Citizen
ship implies political equality. The big,,,-fat,
odoriferous " nigger," if g. citizen of the Uni
ted States, has - a perfect title :o all th e r i g h ts
and privilegel possessed by his white neighbor.
In this view of the case, (and it is the correct
age) how does Mr. Grow excuse' his zeal for
the * Topeka. Constitution which proposes to
exclude negroes fiom the soil of Kailas for
We hear much of the Homestead measure,
and the inalienable tight'of mail to "lan d
enough to rear a habitation on;" but are the
I -benefits of this measure, and the enjoyment
of this tight to be guaged by color 1 We
don't admit that policy which! cnits'negroes
citizens, and in the same, breath votes to shut
them out forever_ from the con imon territory
of the Union. This & however, is the policy
to which Mr. Grow is fully committed by the
It is a shame that a inan who has been
honored by the' vOters of the District., with a
seal in Congress for,ten years, should be menu
enough to tell falsehoods to deceive and mis
lead those voters. Yet this shame Mr. Grow
boldly challenges, by repeating -that the Su
preme Court have decided that "negroes bare
no rights which white men are bound to re
spect;". and that the majority of that Court
areslaveliolders. Base lies 'What the Court
did say, is this. _They stated as a matter of
history That more than a century ago, the
American Colonies and the civilized world re
garded negroes as merchandise and there
fore, without sights Which white men were'
bound to respect. And this statement is true:
For proof-of its torrectues we refer to the leg
islative records of the colonies.
Suppose we say that England treated the
first Napoleon like a barbarian and a beast.
Shall it .then be said that we decided the
"first Napoleon to be a barbarian and a
beast 1" Such a charge against us in such
a case would be just as reasonable and truth
ful as the one Mr. Grow prefers against the .
Supreme Court. -For 'such logic there abould
be nothing but contempt. But the majority
of the Supreme Court, are not slaveholders:
Four of the Judges are from free States, and
Chief Justice Taney freed hisslaves years ago.
These falsehoods may appear trifling to some,'
but they show the animus of the utterer.
We may. hereafter review ,this speech more
at length, .with particular reference to its

We clip the above from the platform of a

not original with him, brit is stolen from an

in zaliiical strife, and repudiating every obli
gation which patriotism imposes, and iieliher
ately inculcating the foulest treasons. _
These remarks were suggested to our mind
by the perusal of a diacrenrserlelivered in the
Church of the Putitatits, New York, on last
Stieday, by George 11. Cheever, and reported
by the' mostconemendatorY comments by the
Black Republican newspapers. The subject
of the so-ealled sermon . was the Harper's Fer
ry insurrection. and the conviction' of John
8r0,.e. He characterized hint as the "true
Christain," whose "soul would go immedilte
ly to his Father—to God," if he be " hanged
on the gallowe." The Black Republican seems
to be so strong in Reverend Nir.,Chuever that
he forgets the most sacred injutation of the
scriptures, " to Obey rulers," to " resct the
powers that be, to " submit to exeryordinance
of man,". and not to be of the number of
those. who " are not afraid to. speak evil of
dignitaries." Every sane man will' agree with
us when we say the preacher forsook his god
liness, or rather, that his godliness forsook
him-ahem he uttered the following:
" If the men of peace would not apply God's
law 'to the abolition of slavery from the fees
of the earth, in the shape of arguments and.
pungent truths and the maledictions of God.
the men-of war would put iti in the shape of

him to curse and malign the Giivernment un
der which he lives and to which he looks for
protection. His "conscience" teaches him
that it is right that he should ask his congre
gation to join him in prayer to the Althighty,
that He may wither and blight almost one
half of our country. His "conscience" tells
him that he ought to preach that- obedience
to the Constitution and the lasva sys
tem of practical atheism," and that " hell
would need no better foundation on which
to stand against heaven," His "conscince'
impels him to style the Government and all
its officers in "oligarchy of pirate,s," if they
execute a law enacted by the representatives
of the people and sanctioned - by the Consti-'
tution; and his "conscience" also urges him
to proclaim from his pulpit on a Sabbath
morning that it was "the business of every
servant of Jesus to understand and to carry
out into all . life" the principles which "Old

with a large force, has posiini and is
ravaging.the country alone the Rio Or`rinde
from Brownsiille to Rome, and :that he has
defeated a force of one hundred men, under
Captain Tobin,' who marched against him
from Corpus Christi. The news that Browns

Ile Government has ordered 'eight coin

proceed immediately to. Brownsville. This
force, witit---the companies heretofori. sent,
will, we doubt• not, be strong•eifough • to af

of Capt. Tobin and his command at that place.
Soon after he entered the town, the second
