THE FOUR NAPOLEONS:
- A statement has appeared in a French Jour-
our namesake, Zo Preue of Paris,) that
Louis Napoleon had purchased, from tho East
India Company, that part of tho island of St.
Holena which was inhabited by the Emperor
Napoleon, from 1816 to 1821. Longwood,
where he lived, died, aud was buried is now the
property of France, once governed by Napo
leon. i
Never .was man more popular, in tho coun
try which ho ruled, than this man. Wo do not
except our own Wasuixoton, who seems re
garded, among all civilized nations, with respect
bordering upon veneration. Washington, ns
the Liberator, may have been morojustly entitled
to affection and regard, than Napoleon, the
Conqueror,—but it is the nature of tho French
to love and hate with something akin to fierce
ness. We remember) in silent gratitudo, with
What unselfish devotion, perseverance, courage,
and judgment Washington devoted the best
.years of his life to the service ofhis country,—
how, when the great achievement was com
pleted, by her admission into tho family of na
tions,' he laid down tho almost sovereign trust
which had heen placed In his hands, and re
tired into private life, —how, at the unanimous
call of the people, ho gave eight years of his
closing life to their Service, in a civil capacity,
—and how, when tho deatli-angel summoned
him to another and a better world, Ills grave
was watered with a nation’s tears.
The same noble, and, above all, manly cha
racterisiics which endeared him to us, have
won for Washington a like regard at home. In
England, moro particularly, this regard has
deepened into a feeling of veneration. For
there was in the character of W asiungton many
points of similitude to tlio lending traits of the
English character itscir. A warm heart, with
a cold demeanor j invincible adherence to the
claims of Duty; rectitude of principle, which
nothing could weaken; cool judgmeutand great
perseverance, and that peculiar courage which,
While it rather shrinks from display, appears to
gain intensity when called into action, auddoes
not feel, for it will not submit to, sucli a thing
as defeat. Deep in tho hearts of Englishmen
is respect and veneration for him who is now
known among us ns Father of his Country—a
title prouder than that of King or Csusar.
Though such a cynic as Thacker at may sneer
at him as « Mr. Washington,” England herself
holds a far different opinion. Tho name of
Washington is a household word at English
hearths, and, at this hour, Englishmen think
that the. only mi. j fit to be compared witli their
Wellington, is our own immortal Washington.
. The regard which tho French have for Na
poleon is entirely different. To us, Wash,
inoton appeared as tho .Liberator, when we
combined to fight tho battles for freedom.
Napoleon was endeared to the French ns the
Conqueror. He overthrew thrones, and dy
nasties, and dominations, and added territory to
that Franco which placed him in command.
He gratified the amour propre of Frenchmen,
by emulating the conquests of their Ciiame
magne. The spoils of subdued nations, wlvom
his sword made tributary to France, enriched
hef capital, and tho Louvre became a treasury
of aft, crowded as it waswith the noblest paint
ings and sculptures, which had previously em
bellished and enriched tho palatial abodes of
Emperors and Kings, Princes and Nobles,
galleries and churches, in Italy, Spain, Portu
gal, Germany, and tho Netherlands. 110 made
Paris (to use tho words of Phillips,) “the
miniature metropolis of the world.” 110 elevated
the dominion, he augmented tho wealth, he in
creased theterritory, and, above all, he extended
and exalted tho Glory of France. To this last
he constantly appealed. He treated his soldiers
as if each and every of them were worthy of
his personal regard. There was exaggeration,
of course, in tho remark that every drummer
in Napoleon’s armies, boro himself as if tho
baton of a Marshal of France were at tho bottom
of his knapsack i—but, in very truth, every man
appeared as though 110 foughtunder Napoleon’s
eye, for good conduct' found immediate and
liberal reward and promotion. To the last, the'
soldiers clung to him. llow touching is tho
simple record of his taking leave of tho army,
in the court yard of Fontaiucbleau, after his
first abdication, in 1814! llow thrilling tho
narrative of his return from Elba, when the
troops sent forth to arrest of slay lain, burst
into tears as the well-known form und features
cqmo near, and yet more near, and, flinging
away their weapons, eagerly surrounded him,
proud even to touch his garments, and
gladly re-assuming the tri-color cockade,
which was associated in their minds with
q hundred Victories, and with him 1 How
bloodless that triumphant return to Paris, jus
tifying his own boast that « the eagle would fly
from tower to tower, until it alighted on the
pinnacle of Notre Darnel” How sublime tho
devotion of his soldiers at “ bloody, but most
bootless Waterloo!” And how pathetic, with a
mingling of saddened pride, was their recep
tion of his mortal remains, now resting beneath
tho dome of the Invalidos, in Paris, after flve
and-twenty years of banishment. Even tho
occupation of the throne— of Hi throne —by
Lotus Napoleon is mainly owing to the affec
tion which tho veterans of the Empire boro for
his .memory. They had kopt aiivo, in every
hamlet and village of France, the recollection of
what he had done. They forgot liis faults, and
loved to dwell on the greatness of his achieve
ments and the gigantic power of his world
grasping genius. No wonder, that, with such
j impressions on the mind of France, Louis Na
i poleon should have been elected President,
1 and finally chosen “Emperor of the French, by
the grace of God, and the will of the People.”
Let it he remembered, too, that this Napo
leon Was not all soldier. He was equally great
in the cabinet and the field, in tho council
■chamber as in the camp. His administrative
powers were remarkable, and. the rapidity with
which he conceived great.plans was as wondqr-
PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1857.
tbi as the certainty .with which, he. jiadjlieih
executed. In his lexicon, there was •no Aucb
word aa'impbseible. His mind graspedjAt dnee,
the minutest details greatest principles!.
He seemed to know, everything, as If by Ihtul- 1
tion. Ho had the art of infusing much - of 1 his
own spirit into tho biinds of thosp \vlipm Jio
employed—hut, then, he rarely' did employ
any one but men of ability. He was placed on
such an eminonco that it was Impossible for.
ldm to feel jealous of any man, and, therefore,
ho was just toward all inon. lie had a rare
fascination of manner, and those who came in
to familiar intercourse with him, felt as if un
der the spell of an enchanter, sowormly, truly,’
and lovingly did tbiy legMd him.
Amid the vast labors imposed on Napoleon,
—in Ids double capacity of ruler and soldier,
he found time for podjfylng the laws of Fiance,'
and recasting them with as much simplicity as,
possible; for reproducing them as the far-famed
Code Napoleon, which continues In Frsnce!
Belgium, and parts of Italy and Germany.
His fame as a soldier may pass away, over) as 1
his conquests have passed away s his glory as
a sovereign may be challenged or cloudedyhntr
one thing is certain—hp reduced. the' chaos' of
French law into order and consistency, aud.hp
will take his plado, for ever. the-great
benefactors of mankind, with' Moaks and:Jus
tinian. , ; ;
His very misfortunes erfdenred ldm|o France.
His fall,-from a summit : of glory and power;
such as Alexander, o*sab, and Charlb
maone had not reached, was great Indeed..
Yet'there was Surprising elasticity in hi? iqiud,
—for, groat as was that' fall, he recoiled <froto
Elba, and the, rebound cast .
Paris, “ ayp, every inch a King.” Finally
conquered, by. treachery qs much ai valor, ! he
threw himself, like Themisiooles, upon .the
hospitality of his greatost and most constant,
foe; but tho Ministry of England Wero’defi
cient in magnanimity, and giving him the fate
of Prometheus, 'flung him into captivity on
the island-prison of St, Helena. ‘ There!’sub
jected to many a petty insult, tho remaining
six years of his life wero spent, and ho cm- 1
ployed them worthily—in writing the, history
which lie had made ; in -recording his achieve
ments in war, government, am) policy;' ih ex
plaining tho motives which had actuated him;
in frankly acknowledging his errors, 4s a man
niid as a ruler ; in generously paying.tho tri
bute Of merited praise to liis associates in the
camp and the council. , ’
I n liis last will, (a singular document, in which
his peculiar idiosyncracy was fully developed,)
lie breathed one touching wish, —“that hiA
ashes might repose by the banks of tile
S.sino, in tho heart of that Franco which ho had
lov ed so well.” Five-and-twenty years passed
on, aud great changes wore made in France.
By one- strong effort, in July, 1830, France cast
out tlio .reigning Bourbons, and placed Louis
Philippe d’Orleans on the throne. Never had
man a nohi’er cliauco of permanent empire than
this Citizen-King. But, kora tho very first/
he aimed and acted for the aggrandizement of
his family. Fearing an accoasien of unpopula
rity, in 1840, ho carried into effect a suggestion
of Thiebs, his Mlnistor, and asked England to
render back to Franco lier dead Napoleon.
The request w as eagerly complied with, and,
with much pomp and impressive magnificence,
the funeral obsequies of Napoleon wero cele
brated,—tho transit of his remains through
Franco being the most grand and sublime
spcctaclo of modern times. It was more, for it
re.awakened the French fooling ibr the very
name of Napoleon.
Another Napoleon now occupies the throne.
Clear-headed, far-seeing, astute, politic, de
termined, and unscrupulous, Louis Napoleon
is perhaps tho ablest man in' Europe ;at this'
moment. Hp.lias converted tho antagonism
of England into a strong alliance, and, what
ever else may be said, is !he only European
ruler called to eupreme power by popular
election .
More than the possession of Longwood is
said to he in his mind. Wo hirve heard, and
we holievo, that the Emperor of Austria has
signified a desire to restoro to Franco the ashes
of tlio young Napoieos, so that sire and son,
so sadly disunited in life, may together “ sleep
tiie sleep that knows no waking. ” No doubt,
the boon will ho accepted, and Paris will have
another magnificent show, whon the coflln of
file fair lad, once known, even when an infant,
ns “ King of Homo, ” is placed by tho side of
the modern CitARLEidAOXE.
There is a moral in such a show which tho
French will scarcely take to heart, though
their rulor, who lias passed through hard vicis
situdes of fortuno, will bo at no loss to apply it.
France has had throe Napoueons—though one
of them, like tho son of Louis XVI,, wore only
a shadowy diademi, having, for a moment, as it
were, the name and state of monarch. There
is another child-ikeir now. Will tho son of
Louis Napoekon und Euokxie over sit upon
tho throne of Fran ce 1 This is a problem so
far beyond human capacity to solve, that we
simply state it. Yet what a vast amount of
European history wfll liavo to he acted and
written, ore Time cam bring tho response.
Another Route for tb e Sub-Atlantic ‘Telegraph.
fFor The Pjrens.l
A statomontlatoly appeared in the New York
Journal of Commerce* whioh is worthy of con
sideration at presont. It refers to the route origi
nally proposed for tho Trans-Atlantic Telegraph,
namely, by way of Greenland, Iceland, and the
Faroo Islands to tho North of Scotland; A grant
for which purpose was obtained from tho King of
Denmark in 1854*.
It proceeds to*’ gay: “In October, 1855, tho
Philadelphia tic »ard of Trade, alive to tho groat
importance of a * rransatlantio Tolegraph, and hav
ing considered tho two routes proposed for its ac
complishment, onmo to tho conclusion that tho ono
by way of the Danish islands was tho most prftoti
cnblo and tho moi.t likoly, to bo attended with
succcsj, and tbo.p mscordingly passed a scries of
resolutions suggest! ng and recommending that the
Secretary of tho N avy bo authorixod to equip and
commission such vee sols nnd officers of the United
k Stato3 as might b o necessary to make a careful
nnd roliablo survey of tho soundings of tho Allan
tto Ocean botween tho shores of Newfoundland,
Grocclnnd, and led land/' Such a survey has not
been made.
Tho Danish route is said to possessono great ad
vantage ovor the 'other—that no single distance
from land to land, ‘is over fivo hundred milos, anti in
the aggregate, th/o longthofcablo required would bo
no moro. This ro «to “ being composod of comparative
ly short distanc es(noono exooodiug,ofl we have'said,
five hundred n riles), accidents would be much less
likoly to oocur/in laying tko cablodown; it would
in foot, bo es mblishing several'short Uncs, ouch
seporately; oj section could ba put on board and
laid down by one vessel; tho probability of accident
from rough weather would bo less; there would
bo no oooasl on for the hazard of Attempting to join
in mid-ocoa n the soparato portions of tho cable;
and if accic (ent should ooour to ono seotion, it would
not affect t*no othors—tho loss wou Id be less and
muob moro.' easily remedied. ’
In tho Snb-Atlnutio line from Ireh tnd, tho groat
obstacles t<o bo contended with are, the' force of tho
undor-curronttf and tho groat distanco. for a siugle
span of wire. As regards the first of these, it is
said that, by tb e route through tho Dan bh islands;
no groator difficulty would be encountered than
have been lately experienced, while tho distances
are most strikingly and favorably reduo *d. Sec
ondly, tho dlfferouce between five hund>ed and
eighteen bund red miles, In such an under! is
extremely important.
It is probable that an effort will be made to in
duce Congress to provide the means for oan ying
\nto efl'cot tho suggestions of tho Phil&del} ihia
Board of Trade, for taking soundings and mak Ing
tho neoessary survoy of the ‘route, by way of
Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. ' A
grant for this purpose was obtained from the kin g*
doin of Denmark, in. the yoar 3854, by Mr. Dorm *o
B. TeVbctts, who. in advance of all ©then b
was impressed with the practicability of an inter *
oooanio ielogroph connection between Europe aoti •
America, by way of this route. He applied to t&o
King of Denmark fora logalauthorisation to.sarry
out his project, and also Induced the Philadelphia
Board of trade to take their action. At all o* fonts,
tho idea is too important to bo lost sight of.

AFRICAN PULPIT ELOQUENCE,

The expected ndvont of a distinguished African
Herald of the Cross had boon tho themo of dis

day appointed for tho holding fortk, tho pulpit

PENNSYLVANIAN HISTORY.
WAIFS FROM TliE WEST BRANCH VAL-
LEY.—No. I.
HY JOttN or LANCASTER.
I propose giving you a short description of the
various towns in tho West Branch Valley of the
Susquehanna, ombraying their early history, pre
sont growth, and future pmjpects.
Tim is, probably, ope of tho most beautiful and
romontio spots in Pennsylvania. Tho valley is not
very wide or extensive. It commences at Nor
thumberland, whero the two branches unite and
form the moip river, and properly ends at Look
Havon, where the stream bursts through a bold ridge
of tho Alleghanies.
The West Branoh of tho Busquohanna was called
tho Otzinachson by tho aborigines who inhabited
the country. It is a beautiful title, and should
have borne it to the presept day.
The sjonery along the river is varied, wild, and
sometimes picturesque; and it Is impossible to form
a oorreot idea of its variegated beauties without
visiting the spot/ Tho valley is in a high state of
oultivation, containing some of the finest farms and
most flourishing towns In the interior of the State.
What a contrast does the beautiful Tale of the
Otzinaohson now present to tho time when It was
inhabited by the Indians! Let us, in imagination,
look b&ok to the period whon the red man dwelt on
the banks of the stream, joained in the forest, or
hunted tho deer and the elk on tho declivities of
, the surrounding mountains—when he built his v
humble wigwnm in some shady doll, beneath some
wide-spreading branches of the hemlock or tho
pine. It was indeed a happy sceno: his young
p&ppoosos gambolled in their, rude’simplicity on
tho banks of tho murmuring rivulet—the squaws
cultivated their patches of oorn and chanted songs
of tho spirit-land—and the dusky warrior plied his
birch-bark ennoo over the crystal waves of the
beautiful Otsinaohson. Happy scone! This val
ley was then a fairy land—an Indian paradise, the
cherished homo of tho rude, yot noble children of
the forest. But mighty changes were destined to
occur—tragedies calculated to cause a thrllL of
horror to run through the frame, must transpire
beforo their cap of destiny is filled.
The valley has ontiroly changed, and tho last
rod man has long since been gathorod to his fathers.
Highly cultivated farms ocoupy tho spot where the
Indian villago stood, and the busy hum of indus
try is hoard on evory hand. In summer time the
luxuriant grain waves over tho graves that contain
tho chorishcd remains of their ancestors, and the
mighty car of civilisation has orushed the last me
mentos reared to perpetuate thoir memory.
Tho towns that I propose describing are Bun
bury, Northumberland, Lowisburg, Milton, Mun
cy, Williamsport, Jersey Shore and Look Haven.
Thoy aro embraced in tho couatios of Northumber
land, Unton, Lycoming and Clinton.' I shall ro
verso tho order, and oommenoo at
LOCK HAVEN. CLINTON COUNTY.
Tins flourishing town is 1 oca tod on tho right bank
of the river, on the beautiful undulating pinto, at
tho mouth of the rich and fertile valley of Bald
Eagle, sixty-seven miles from the mouth of the
river at Northumberland, nnd twenty-seven from
Williamsport.
Tho land, on whioh tho town now stands, was
originally embracod in tho grant to Rev. Dr. AlH
sou by Richard Penn, in 1769, for fifteen hundred
acres, in consideration of services rendered in the
French and Indian wars of 1755-8.
A cabin was erected hero as early as 1773, by
William Rood, who afterwards tamed U Into a
stook&do fortification when the tronbles with tho
Indians commonced, and it was known os Rood’s
Fort during tho war. Tho best part of the town
now stands upon the site once ocenplod by this for
tification. It was commanded for a long time by
an individual known among the early settlers as
Cooksoy Long, who doos not seem to haro boon
distinguished for much bravery or military acu
men.
Tbero are many interesting reminiscences of
early history associated with this place and Its
immediate vicinity, that occurred in the dark and
gloomy days of Indian barbarity and Anglo-
S&xot} deception and perfidy,, that aro very inte
resting to tho presont reader. I will relate one
or two.
Borne time in the year 1778 an Indian suddenly
appeared on ’ the bnnk'tif tbo river,‘opposite tho
fort, whore Lookport now stands, and tnddd signs
to the garrison that he wished to he ferried over.
Thoy feared that ho might be a decoy, and refused
to vonture for him. Howovcr, ho stoutly insisted,
and to show his good intentions waded out into
tho river np to his nook. None of the men daring
to venture, Mrs. Reed jumped into a canoe and
broughthlm over safely. He proved to beafriond
ly Indian, and had travelled a long way to warn
them that a powerful band of hostile savages was
preparing to Invade the valley for the purpose of
exterminating tho settlers.
Being muoh exhausted, and feeling perfectly
safe, after delivering his mossage ho laid down to
seek some repose, and was soon buried in a deep
slumber.
A number of men about the fort were shooting
at a mark, amongst whom was ono named Dowitt’
who was slightly intoxicated. Loading his rtilo,
he observed that he would make tho bullet ho was
putting in kill an Indian.. Littlo attention was
paid to him, howover, at the time. He made
good his remark, however; and instead of shoot
ing at the mark, fired at the friendly Indian, and
shot him dead ! A baser act of ingratitude can
not bo ooncoivod. The murdor was unprovoked
nnd cowardly, and rendered doubly worse from tho
fact that tho Indian had travelled many milos
through tho gloomy wilderness to inform them of
their dnngor.
Tho garrison was so exasperated at this inhuman
nnd ungrateful act, that thoy threatened to lynch
him on thospot; whon, becoming alarmed, ho fled,
ami was sufferod to escape. Ho never was heard
of moro, and probably fell, ns he richly deserved,
by tbo tomahawk of the enemy.
In tbo winter of tho samo year, throe men loft
tho Fort and proceeded across tho river on tho ice.
Thoy had been over hut ashort time till they were
fired upon, and ono of tho party killed. The otbor
two ondeavored to make thoir escapo by immedi
ately retracing their steps. Ono of them, in tho
hurry of tho flight, ran into an airhole. Ho
caught hold of tho odgo of tho ice, however, and
managed to keep his head abovo water. Tho In- >
dians wore afraid to venture too near, for fear of
breaking through, but commenced firing at him.
Watching tho flashes of their guns, ho dodged his
head undor water ljlto a duck, and oludod tho
balls. After firing several shots at him, they sup
posed that ho was doad, and left, whon ho suc
ceeded in crawling on the ico, in a partially ex
hausted state, and oscaped to tho Fort.
Tho other man was hotly pursued. Ly a single In
dian, who gained on him rapidly. Ho had a gun,
whioh ho considered worthless, but as the Indian
neared him ho would turn and point it at him,
thinking to intimidate him, but didn’t pull tho
trigger. This he reponted several times, whon the
savugo thinking it was unloaded, would point his
tomahawk at him in derition, and exclaim, “ pooh,
pooh.” Tho Indian came up vory eloso to him at
last, and ho began to think that his days woro
about numbered, when, as a last resort, he sudden
ly turned and inatinotivcly raised his gun, os it
wore, and pulled tho triggor, when, to his nstonish
mont, it went off and shot his pursuer dead ! when
ho escaped to the Fort in safety.
A fow milos below Lock Huvcn, in tho river, is
tho Great Island, a spot famous in tho early his
tory of tho country. Sovoral celebrated Indian
chiefs rosided hero at differeut periods, amongst
whom was tho Chief Batd Eagle. It was to thorn
a porfeot Paradise—an olysian homo—whero thoy
loved to dwell, and otfor up their orisous to the
‘Great Spirit. No lovelier spot can he imagined.
Tho soil is of a rioh alluvial doposit, which pro
duces luxuriantly. It contains about three hun
dred acros, divided into two- farms, which aro in a
high etato of cultivation.
The Great Island was visited aa early ns 1745, by
Rev. David Brainerd, tho pious Indian missionary,
and in 1743 by Bishop Ccmorhoff, and Zoisberger,
two Moravians, who woro establishing missions far
in tho wildornoss, among tho savage inhabitants.
They were tho first white mon of whom we have
unj' record, that first ascended the river to this
point.
The first permanent white settler on the Island,
was a man named William Dunn, who purchased
it (according to a tradition) from tho Indians, for a
barrel of wniskoy, a rifle, nnd a hatchet! The
Indians afterwards becamo very much dissatisfied
with their sale, and frequently laid on the oppo
site side of the river, waiting an opportunity to
shoot him, but thoy never succeeded.
Tho present enterprising town of Lock Haven
owes its paternity to an occontric individual named
Jerry Church, who has quite a mania for founding
towns. Ho purchased tho land from Dr. Hendor
son, in 3853, for $lB,OOO, and In the autumn of the
samo year laid out tho town, named it, and effected
a salo of lots, receiving ton per cent, on tho pur
chase money. After striurglmg for six years, dur
ing which time the town din not improve vory
muoh, Mr. Churoh at length succeeded in getting
the Legislature to poss a law creating tho county
of Cliuton; nnd, in 1839, it was orgnuized by the
Hon. Judgo Burnside.
Mr. Churoh very generously donated n lot of
ground on which to erect a Court Houso, whioh was
put up in 184-4. It ia a substantial brick building
of rospectable size. Mr. Church, to his published
life, says:
“Ten years ago there was but one bouse, and
probably about n dozen inhabitants in the place,
and now (1845) it is aboautiful village, and a ploco
of considerable business. It has se\ eu retail stores
and groceries, ono drug nnd two candy shops, three
preachers, two meeting housos, (and ono ‘ Jerry
Churoh,’) six lawvors,two doctors, and two justices
of tho peaco, and tho balanoo of tho inhabitants
, aro what I pall a lair community,”
TWO CENTS.
HON. JAMES t. JONES, OP TENNESSEE.
A friend in Tennessee has forwarded ns ft
report of the address of Hon. James C. Jones,
well-known as a leading Henhy Clay Whig
for years past, delivered at La Grange, in that
State, on tho 28th of July, 1857:
It is naked what has been gained by the South
by the Kansas bill? I answer everything— the
restoration of the Constitution— the declaration
and recognition by Congress of the principle of our
perfect equality in the Union—sanctified as it has
been by too Supreme Coart—and the consciousness
that, henceforth and forever, the protection of our
rights and liberty is dependant, not /tpon con
cessions and Compromises, but in the maintenance
op the Constitution and the Union under the
Constitution. It matters not .whether, hencefor
ward, as a measure of protection, there shall be'
one, or many, or no slave States added to the
Union. So long ns the Constitution stands the
South is'secnreln her equality and rights. (Gov.
Jones's apostrophe horo was singularly beautiful
and eloquent, and called forth rapturous ap
plause.]
But further, said ho, about this monster of alien
suffrage, which Seems to have taken the place of
squatter sovereignty, anti-Popcry, Americans ru
ling America, and various other catches of Know-
Notbinglam—whose contrivers' beat at
humbug—l have already shown you .that tixteen
out of eighteen new States .came iq with it, and
are now prosperous and, happy. Of the public
domain, all of it U now embraced in some one-or
other of the Territories organized. i-Ip somo.pf,
these territorial organizations it is allowed—in'
others it Is not. Now. suppose these politicians,
whom It la asked that the people should.send to
Congress and to tho Legislature became they are
opposed to alien suffrage, should succeed ln being
elected, where and how are they to do any good by
carrying out their doctrine? It will not he pre
tended that tboy can ohange the laws-already
passed, and under which rights have already been
acquired. Where, then; will they apply their
doctrine, granting it to be as important as they
Eretoud it is? Fellowreitizens., don’t you see it is
umbug, and that it La used by Know-Nothingism
togetinto of&oe upon? • ''
But, said Governor Jones, I am taunted and de
nounced for that, claiming to be, an old-line Whig,
and having said very hard things about Democracy,
I am acting In concert with' and supporting the
Democratic party. Show me, said he, a better
party—one capable and os tho
party has shown itself to bo, of standing dp and
breasting with us of the South the wild hordes of
Abolitionism—and I will go with it. {The Governor
hero sketched the rapid declension of the American
party, after the *• twelfth section’' was struck out,
and its feebleness even in the Southern States, to
sty nothing of its having ceased to osisfc as a na
tional organization in 'the free States.] Thero is
no each party, and l am therdforo driven to choose
betweenstanding alongside with thisnational Dem
ocratic party, to go with tho Black Republicans, or
maintain a triangular fight of more hatred to the
Democratic party because it is the Democratic
party. Is Mar a reasonable position for a patriot,
to sustain ? Why, even the row scattering Know
Nothings that get into Congress will Have to vote
for a “Democrat” for the Speakership, or give a|d
indireotly to our enemy.
Bat, said the Governor, I am.tcdd that the South
has been betrayed by Walker, who was sent but M*
Governor of Kansas by tho Administration, and
that, after All, Kansas will be a free State, and
therefore we should go against the Demooratic par
ty. Now I think Gov. Walker went too far wnen
he said that tho Constitution to he framed by the
Convention must bo submitted directly to tho peo
ple, or he would not regard .it. Thorp is no objec
tion to that being done. Our own State Constitu
tion was enbmitieil to a direct vote of the peonle,
and it has boen done in other instances. But tiiat
is a matter with the Convention who aro chosen to
frame a Constitution, and Gov. Walker, in the po-.
sltion he takes,"usurps, in my judgment, the pre
rogative of the Convention. Butsurely no one will
contend, if the people do not wish slavery, that
it should Ho forced upon them, or vice versa.
■ And just hero, said the Governor, loojk at the in
consistency of these Know-Nothings who are de
nouncing tho repeal of tho Missouri Compromise,
and denouncing Walker too in the sam<s breath.
Without tho establishment of tho principle of the
Kansas bill repealing tho Compromise, Kansas was
free territory. They say it should have remained
so, and thus all this agitation have been avoided.
Woil, the whole struggle is, the oause of all the dif
ficulty Js, to get it iu as a freo State. Thoy say
Walker Is going to so let it in, when-of coarse
the struggle will end by the romoval of tho
oause. And yet thoy denounce me for my vote in
favor of the Kansas bill, and Walker for mend
ing up mv error by letting it remain freo territory,
, both w the same breath! So it goes. Anything
rather than not be in opposition to the Democratic
party. Suoh is not the dictate of enlightened pa
triotism at a time like this, when we of the Boath
have to meet and combat a powerful sectional par
ty In the North, and tho Democratio party ja the
only party there that can afford us any assistance—
the only party there that has any strength to as?
sist us in the maintenance of out rights,, Suoh, is
not the dictate of old-line Whigiam. Bn6nha3 never
been my course, nor shall it he how. Country

PERSONAL.
It will be recollected that it wa3 asserted,
shortly after tho British attack upon Canton, that
Gen. Keenan, the United States consul at Hong
Kong, had taken an aotivepart In that affair, ana
had displayed, or caused to be displayed, an
American nag, in the engagement between the
■English and the imperialists. Gen. Keenan states
that the only origin for this statement waa the foot
that ho went to Canton at tho period referred to,
on duties relative to the Macao consulate, (the In
cumbent of the office being an Invalid), and w&s
accidentally present after Canton was supposed to
be in tho bands of the English; and, with many
other spectators, as a matter of curiosity, he walked
to the Governor's palace, being at the time in plain
ar,d unofficial costume.
On his return from the city he hoard that a sea
man of one of the bonts of the United States ship
Levant, who had followed him, was still in tho oity.
He at once returned in search of tho man, and
found him in the enclosure of tho Governor's pa
lace With a boat flag wrapped round a boat staff,
and tuking him by the ann he brought him out;
so that his only agenoy in the whole affair was to
remove the flag. In a second letter to tho depart
ment, General Kconan notice?, with indignation,
the fact that the author of tho letter to the New
York Daily Times , which contained this malicious
statement, had been promoted from the position of
captain’s clerk on bonrd tho United States steamer
Portsmouth to that of actiug purser of that ve.«3cl,
tho reward, he presumes, of nis perversion of cir
cumstances that wero porfectly simple and natural
in themselves.— N. Y< Herald.

Quarter Sessions—Judgo Conrad.—ln thecose
of Henry Monaghan, a polico officor, charged with
passing counterfeit money, application was made
to tho Court by Mr. Cassidy, to postpone tho enso
on tho ground that there was an application to the
Supremo Court for a certiorari upon which thore
was a rule beforo the Supremo Court, to bo argued
on tho day of August last. Mr. Mann had re
ceived notice of the rule, but hod not thought pro
per to attend.
Mr. Mann. District Attorney, said that although
ho respected tho action of tho Supreme Court, yot
ho would press this caso to trial now. 110 did not
believo that the argument for tho certiorari wus
intended lo bo broceeded with. Ho bad been in
formed by Mr. Cassidy himself that it was not in
tended to bo proceeded with; and after all this de
lay, he would, except tho Court interfered with
him, trv the case.
Mr. Monaghan was then sworn, and SAidthat his
witnesses were absent, and that ho could not safely
go to trial without thorn. The Court said he might
have two hours to proouro his witnesses. Subse
quently Monaghan informed tbo Court through bis
counsel, that he had beoo unable to procure more
than one witness, and would ask for a further
postponement. This was opposed by Mr. Mann for
tho Commonwealth, and led to a smart altercation
between counsel, during which Mr. Rankin, one of
the defendant's counsel, came in with a certiorari
which disposed of tho ease for the present.
The case of Theodoro T. Derringer, charged with
forging tavern licenses, was calledup, and the Dis
trict Attorney directed the Clerk to arraign him.
Lewis 0. Cassidy, Esq., who, with 11. M, Phillips,
Esq., Is counsel for tho defendant, stated to the
Court thot ho had obtained a conditional order
the Supreme Court for a certiorari on six
days' notieo to tho District Attorney.
Mr. Mann said ho would allow the action of the
Supreme Court In this caso. but he desired to say
that he would bo in attendance to argue the case,
and ho would have somo definite action of the case.
I state publicly before the parties that I do not in
tend doing anything in this cose before the time
fixed for tho argument of tho rulo.
Jacob Gunsouhauser and Presley J. Middleton

Middloton, to sell him his borao, and tho price
