GAYLORD CHURCH. “The Jubilee Coming!” Wentworth, the Republican Mayor of Chicago, and editor of the Democrat of that place, thus hails the election of Lincoln : “We see the day of jubilee coming, when millions of enmnehised slaves shall rend the heavens with their shouts ; and all this under the farms of the Constitution, andwuh the States of the Union kept compacted to gether.” _ He don’]: tell us, however, what shall be done with the enfranchiaed slaves. after the great act shall have been accomplished by Lincoln’s election. ' Col. Calms in his Boston speech said: Let Boston be represented, as of old, by men of Whig antecedents and Whig principles. (Cheer-s.) Let Mas sachusetts be true to her ancient faith, and you will ﬁnd Pennsylvania in active sympathy with you in all your interests in the next government of the nation. Will Messrs. DAVID WILMOT, ANDREW J. Bnnnmt, and other aspirants for the United States Senate, who were formerly Democrats, please to take notice that. the Governor elect of Pennsylvania. looks with special favor upon men of Whig antecedents, and be warned in time that they can expect no encouragement. from his administration? Linculn and the Fugitive Slave Law. The following was telegraphed from Wash ington to one of the New York papers: “Wm. L. Hodge, of this city, Assistant secretary of the Treasury under Fillmore, has received a. letter from Thus. Cox-win, who has just visited Lincoln, assuring him, on the authority of Lincoln, that if elected he will enforce the fugitive slave law everywhere throughout the non- slu-veholding States.” _ This assertion is-preposterons on the face of it. In fulﬁlling such an intention, Lincoln would tear the Republican yarty to fragments. In no respect has the general government met with ﬁercer opposition than when attempting to conform to those provisions of ‘ the Con stitution relating to fugitive. slaves which are ascentially embodied in the fugitive slave law. Ohio, Massachusetts, and some other States, are:already, for all practical purposes, in a state of open rebellion in regard to this subject, and a Republican administration could not alter the facts. Is It So? ' The report is current that Mr. Lincoln has preﬁareda circular letter to be printed in case of his election by a. majority of the people of the Northern States, assuring the South of his conservatism and respect for their rights, of his intention to call to his councils Southern men, (the names of Wm. C. Rives of Virginia, John J. Crittenden of Kentucky, ex-Governor Morehead and John Bell, ﬁve been mentioned,) andto‘exclude therefrom the leaders of his party, such as Seward, Sumner, Wilson, &e. Ifsuch is Mr. Lincoln’s intention, why does he not make it known now, and not. wait until after the 6th of November? If it is his pur- POBO *0 ignore Seward and his associates, out of deference to the South. now is the time. to say so. Sueh a statement after the election would have no inﬂuence, and would be treated with the contempt that treachery always brings. Fortune, however magniﬁcent, is never re spected that is obtained under false pretences. “ Let'it Come Now.” The atmosphere of Boston seems to have had a damaging eﬁ'ect upon the conservatism of Mr. Cnrtin, the Governor elect of Pennsylvania, for we ﬁnd'him advocating a speedy dissolution of the Union. Like Gov. Banks, who presided at the meeting, he is in favor of “letting the Union slide,” 'in a certain contingency. Listen to this : If it is so, that the people, electing a President dis. solve the Union, let it come now. (Prolonged cheering.) [A person in the audience here cried out, '- So say we, all of us,” which called forth shouts of laughter.] That was a Very funny sentiment, calculated $0 provoke “ shouts of laughter,” wasn’t it. ‘! The morriment of the Boat-on Republicans at the bare suggestion that the dissolution might be near at hand, was quite characteristic of a. set of men who have done more, by their ex trenie conduct, to weaken the bonds of union, by planting distrust of Northern ﬁdelity in the minds of the Southern people, than all the ﬁre. esters in existence. But what do the people of Pennsylvania think of theirﬁovernor elect, who professed So much devotion to the Union while soliciting their suﬁrages, expressing the hope that. if dissolution is ever to come, thmit my' come ﬂow: 3’ For our part, We (rust that if dissolution is ever to overtake this government, it. will not some now; and that it will continue to exist, for many, many years, said that Mr. Cumin and his Boston friends will be disap~ pointed in their expectations. THE 01:131.); IN H 7321: racemnumx m: VICTOR EMMANUEL _ __+,,.___. ' - To (lzc People of Southern Italy .- At a. solemn moment. for the national history and for the destinies of the country I address my words to. you, people of Southern Italy, who, having in my name changed the State, send me deputations of every class of citizens, magistrates and representatives of your mu nicipal bodies, asking to be restored to order, blessed with freedom, and united with my king dom. I will tell you by what thought I am guided, and what is my consciousness of the duties which a man placed by Providence on an Italian throne ought to fulﬁl. I ascended the throne after a great national calamity. My father gave me a lofty example by abdicating the crown to save his own dig— nity and the freedom of his people. Charles Albert fell sword in hand, and died in exile. His death associated more and more the desti— nies of my family with those of the Italian people, who for so many centuries have given to all foreign lands the bones of their exiles as a pledge for restoring the inheritance of every nation placed by God within the same boundaries, and joined together by the bond of a common language. 1 educated myself by that example, and the memory of my father was my guiding star. I could never hesitate in my choice between a crown and a word I had given. I strengthened freedom in an epoch not very favorable to freedom, and I wished that, as it developed itself, it should take root in the manners of the people, for I could never harbor any jealousy or suspicion of ‘what was clear to my people. By preserving freedom in Piedmont I reli giously respected the heritage which the pro phetic mind of my august fatherhad bequeathed to all Italians. By representative franchise, i by popular education, by the freedom of trade \ and industry, I endeavored to increase the l well—being of my people. I wished that the 1 Catholic religion should be respected, but also ‘i that every man should be free in the sanctuary of : his aim condition; and, by strengthening civil authority, I openly resistcddhat obstinate and ‘ scheming faction which boasts to be the only friend and guardian of the Throne, but which aims at ruling in the name of Kings, and placed between the Sovereign and the people the barrier of its intolerant passions. This system of Government could not be without effect on the rest of Italy. The con— corcl between the Sovereign and the people in the purpose of national independence and of civil and political liberty, the Parliamentary tribune and _the free Press, and the army, which ‘ had preserved its military traditions under the ‘ tri-color, raised Piedmont to the rank of stand- l ard~bearer and arm of Italy. The strength 1 of my monarchy was not the result of the arts l of a clandestine policy, but. of the open in ﬂuence of ideas and of public opinion. I was thus enabled to maintain in that part of the Italian people 'which was united under my socptre, the notion of a national leadership, (cgemouia,) whence was to spring the concor— dant harmony of the severed provinces in one single nation. Italy was able to understand my conception when she beheld my soldiers sent into the ﬁelds of the Crimea beside the troops of the two great Western Powers. I wished thereby to acquire for Italy the right of participating in all acts concerning the interests of Europe. At the Congress of Paris my Ambassadors were able to speak for the ﬁrst time to Europe of your Suffer-lugs. It became clear to all men how the preponderance of Austria in Italy was injurious to the balance of power in Europe, and what dangers beset the independence and freedom of Europe so long as the rest of the Peninsula was subject to foreign inﬂuence. My magnamimous ally, the Emperor Napo leon 111., felt that the Italian cause was worthy of the great nation he rules. A righteous war inaugurated the new destinies of our country. 1 The Italian soldiers fought nobly beside the unconqured legions of France. The volun— ‘ teers hasteniugfrom all Italian provinces, from all Italian families, under the Cross of Savoy, showed that all Italy had invested me with the right of speaking and ﬁghting in her name. Policy put. an end to the war, but not to its ef fects, which went on with their development, following the unswerving logic of events and of popular movement. ‘ Had I been actuated by that ambition which is ascribed to my family by those who do not consider the nature of the times, I could have been satisﬁed with the acquisition of Lombardy; but I had shed the blood of my soldiers, not. for myself, but for Itoiy.‘ I had called the Italians to arms. SeVeral Italian provinces had changed their form of government to join in the war of Independence-a. war opposed to their Princes. After the peace of Villafranca those provinces asked my protection against the threatened restoration of their former Governments. If the events of Central Italy were the consequence of the war to which we had called the people, -if the system of foreign intervention was for ever to be banished from Italy, I had a duty to recognize; and to uphold the right. of those people legally and freely to utter their vote.— I withdrew my Government—they made an orderly Government; I withdraw my troops— they organized regular forces, and, vieing with each other in unanimity and civil virtues, they rose to so high a reputation and strength, that nothing but the overbearing violence of foreign arms could have subdued them. Thanks to the wisdom of the Central Italian people, the mon— archical idea constantly gained strength, and monarchy gave a moral guidance to that peace ful popular movement. Thus did Italy rise in the estimation of civilized notions, and it be- . came clear to all Europe that the Italians were ‘ ﬁt for self-government. 3 When I accepted the annexation I knew not 3 what European difﬁculties Iwas about to meet; ‘ but I could not. break the word I had given to 1 the Italians in my war proclamation. Those l who would charge me with imprudencc should calmly consider what. would become of Italy on ‘ the day in which monarchy should appear pow- l erless to satisfy the want, of a national recon- l stitution. The annexation did not. change the l substance of the national movement, but it assumed new forms. By accepting from the popular .right those ﬁne and noble provinces, I must loyally recognize the application of that principle, nor could I measure it by the rule of my private feeling! and interests. In support 1 of that principle, I, for the good of Italy, made ‘ the sacriﬁce which cost my heart the dearest; 1 Irenouuced two most. noble provinces of the ‘ kingdom of my ancestors. ‘ I have always given those Italian Princes who wished to be my enemies sincere counsels‘ resolving, however, that if those counsels were vein, 1 would meet the danger to which their blindness Would have exposed the throne by accepting the will of‘ Italy.‘ It was in vain that I offered to the Grand Duke of Tuscany alliance before the war; in vain that, after the peace. I offered the High Pontiﬂ‘, in whom I ‘ venerate the head of the religion of my fathers ‘ apd of _ my pearly, to take upon myself the l Vicar-ship of Umbria and the Marches. It was ' t that if th P ,- - ‘ evxden _ use tonnces, which were only restrained by the arms of forei n hire— lings, did not. obtain the security of “it civil ized government which I proposed. the would sooner or later break into revolution. yNeither will I recall the counsels given for man cars by the Powers to King Ferdinand of Niiﬂis _ The judgment which was pronounced agaihst, his Government at. the Paris Congress naturally prepared the people for a change, if the outcry ofpublic opinion and the eﬁ‘orts of diplomacy proved to be of no avail. I offered the young successor Of that. King an alliaan for the war of independence. But there also I found souls closed against all Italian feelings, minds dark. . ened by passion and obstinacy. It was natural that the events in Northern and Central Italy should arouse men’s minds in the South. In Sicily the excitement ,broke out into an open insurrection. A ﬁght began for freedom in Sicily, when a brave warrior, devoted to Italy and to me—Gen. Garibaldi—sailed to its aid. They were Italians. Could I, ought I, to have prevented them? The fall of the Government of Naples strengthened in my heart the convic tion that Kings and Governments should build their thrones on the love and esteem of the peo ple. The new Government in the Two Sieilies was inaugurated in my name. But some of its acts caused apprehension lest it should not in every respect well interpret that policy which is represented by my name. It was feared throughout Italy that under the shade of a glorious popularity, of a long-tried honesty, a faction should muster which was ready to sac riﬁce‘the forthcoming triumph of the national cause to the chimeras of its ambitious fanati~ cism. All- Italians turned to me. that I might avert this danger. It was my duty to do so, because in the present. emergency it would be no moderation, no wisdom, but weakness and imprudence. not to take with a strong hand the direction of that national movement, for which lam responsible before Europe. 1 have sent my soldiers into the Marches and Umbriu, and scattereathat ill-sorted mob of people of all nations and tongues which had gathered there as a new, strange phase of foreign inter vention, and the worst of all. I have pro— claimed Italy for the It'alians; and will never allow Italy to become the nest of cosmopolitan sects, assembling there to hatch reactionary plots, or to further the objects of universal demagoguery. People of Southern Italy !—-—My troops march into your country to strengthen public order. I do not come to impose my will upon you, but to see that yours is respected. You will be called freely to manifest it. May the vote you will deposit in the urn be inspired by that Providence which protects a. righteous cause! Whatever may be the course of events, 1 tran quilly await the judgment of civilized Europe, because I am convinced that I have fulﬁlled my duties as a King and an Italian. My policy may not, perhaps, he used to reconcile in Eu rope the progress of the people with the sta bility of mouarchies. I know that. in Italy I close the era of revolutions. IVICTOR EMMANUEL. FARINI. Given in Aucona, this 9th of October, 1860. AFFAIRS 1N SYRIA BAD CONDUCT OF THE CHRISTIANS—STATE 0F AFFAIRS AT DAMASCUS—MOBE EXECUTION 5. ' Correspondence of the Boston Traveler BEIBUT, SYRIA, Sept. 2,1860 The character of the Christians of Syria. is so low, mean and despicable that were it not for the fact that they belong to the common brotherhood of man and are now great suf ferers, they would receive but little sympathy from those who know them well. They are entirely deﬁcient in what is called in civilized countries, a sense of honor—and are so deceitful, treacherous and ignoble that they furnish the best. evidence in the world of the natural de-' pravity of the human heart, and the inadequacy of. their forms of religion and their religious teachings for the work of civilizing and Chris tianizing the people. The people are dread fully Priest—ridden, while they detest and de spise their Priests. The Bible is kept from all but the Protestant sect, which is very small, not numbering in all Syria and Palestine more than one thousand men, women and children, and the Greeks, Greek Catholics, Marouitcs, Jesuits, are all quarrcling among each other and among themselves. The Greeks and the Greek Catholics have been known to unite with the Druses in waging warfare against the Ma.- ronites and are their most uncompromising foes. Among themselves they have mo peace. The leader in the anti-Bishop party in Tyre is Mr. Akkaad, tse American Consular Agent, and under the pr tection of the American ﬂag he is invulnerable to all the spiritual fnlmina tions of the Church. The United States Consul at Beirut has been beseiged by the Bishop and his party to interfere in the matter. and break down‘lhe opposition of his subordinate, but. his answer is uniformly the same: “If you have any criminal charges to bring against the Consular Agent, I will examine them, but the American Government, which protects all reli gious alike in the United States, willnot inter fere in matters of conscience and church disci pline in Syria. The ofﬁcers and agents of the American government are not questioned or inﬂuenced concerning their religious opinions.” The Patriarch of the Georgian party has been to Egypt to collect funds for the poor of Syria, but. he furnishes relief only to those who adopt. his calender and obey his will. Others retain all their collections, and furnish relief 'to no one; One priest still has sixty thousand piss tres intended for distribution. and his people make loud complaints against his avarice and dishonesty. The priests who went to America a. few years ago to collect funds for schools and hospitals, have also defrauded the people, who have now lost conﬁdence in them almost en tirely. Many Christians of Damascus are now selling their souls to the devil by giving Turks and Arabs of that city certiﬁcates of good character, knowing full well that they murdered many of their brethren. They do this for money, and thus rob justice of 1101- due and screen the guilty from punishment. The Christians of Sidon who witnessed. the massacre of their relatives and friends, and who have since been constituted agents for the Turkish Government, to pay out the daily al lowance to the podr refugees from Hasbeyia and Rasheyis, have just been detected in an attempt to rob them of one-fourth of the scanty allowance provided by the Moslem authorities for the purpose of keeping them alive! There is little in such a character to arouse sympathy or excite brotherly regard. Christian mission aries are nowhere more needed than among the somalled Christians of Syria, for never, in my opinion, has the term of Christian been so mis applied as to the people of the Holy Land. Mr. Consul Brant, of Damascus, writes. “ The local, authorities continue to supply a. little money and bread, but the supply will not suf ﬁce; when the cold and damp weather arrives. tiring and warm bedding and clothing must then be added. Already sickness is extending, and there being no medical assistance for the sufferers, a great mortality may be anticipated. In short, the prospect‘f the approaching win ter is sufﬁciently gloomy, and dearness of bread will, I fear, be added to the other cause of suﬂ'ering.” In View of this state ofthings, Messrs. John son nnd Moore, of the Anglo-American commit tee, will urge the British Syrian Relief Fund to send outs. medical corps at once, with all neces sary medicines, nurses and hospital stores for the relief of the Damuscenes, and meanwhile such medical aid as can be spared from Beirut will be sent immediately. The American and European ladies of this city are very busy in making up clothes for the naked and sick, and their appeal for materials is loud, pressing and worthy of the aid and sympathy of the humane and benevolent every where. A STRANGE COMPLIMENT TO AN Ann-. 1“ 0r- FICIAL 1s Human—4 correspondence from Pesth, Hungary, writes that. during his recent oﬂieiai tour through Hungary, General Bene deck, ,the imperial governor, had a. good occa sion to see unmistakable signs of the spirit reigning in that country. Having arrived at, Nagy Koeros, and visited the public institutions of that city he invited a, certain number of persons to dinner. When the desert came on, one’of those guests, giving him an ancient. batileaxe, said. “General, I give you as a keep sake that ancient weapon; it. is one of those which ware used by the tetanus Black Regiment of our heroic King Maihias Kbrvinus,-when it stormed Vienna and expelled. the Emperor Ferdinand 111. of Hapsburg.” _The General made a‘bow as if he did not. understand the allusion, and accepted the gift with thanks. LATEST BY TELEGRAPH From California and South America. The steamship Northern Light has arrived from Aspinwall. Her California advices have been anticipated. The U. S. sloops of war Lancaster and St. Marny were at Panama, and the steamship Brooklyn and storeship Falmouth at Aspfnwall, on the 25th ult. Advices are received from Valparaiso to the 2d, and Cullao to the 15th of October. The steamer Moses Taylor had touched there. The ultimatum of the American Government had been rejected by Peru, so far as the Lizzie Thompson, Georgiana. and the Victoria. claims are concerned. This refusal would compel the American minister to demand his passport. The ship Lucy M. Hale was partially burned on the sth ult, at Callao. A frightful accident occurred on the 10th ult.., in the dry dock at San Lorenz, involving the entire loss of the Peruvian frigate 0:111:10, formerly the Auperimac, and great loss of life. The frigate was being docked, with all her crew on board. when some staunchions of the dock gave way, causing the vessel to pitch over, when she rapidly ﬁlled with water and sunk.— A great number of people were below, inclu ding men, women and children, and the sick in the hospital, all of whom perished. All the particulars of the disaster were not known at the latest date, but it was believed that the number of killed would reach 150. The number of t the wounded, with broken heads, arms and legs, was very great. The Callao was a. 44 gun frigate, built at Blackwell, England, six years ago. The deck was also damaged and rendered useless. . Bomvm.—The revolution in Bolivia has been suppressed. Several oﬂicers were shot. NloAnAeUA.—Advices from Nicaragua. state that the news of Walker’s capture reached there on the 30th of September, causing much rejoi~ cing. Martinez was again at the head of affairs. Mr. Dimotry was pressing the government for the appointment of a. convention to settle American claims, but unsuccessfully. Marti nez. however, had consented to call a. meeting of' Congress on the 15th of December, so that the ratiﬁcation of the Lamar-Yeledon treaty might be effected within the time expected. Mr. V anderbilt had made the Government an offer for the transit, but it was not accepted. Advices from Guayaquil state that Flores was disbanding his forces, but that the Peruvian President, Castillo, still maintained a hostile attitude, and was seeking permission from his Congress to declare war again with Ecuador. . The U. S. steamship Narroganset left 0511 an on the Bth ult. for Panama. t A diﬂieulty had arisen at Panama between I the United Stat es and British naval forces, ow ; ing to the arrest of an American ofﬁcer and American citizen, for refusing to respond to the challenge of a British guard which had been stationed in the streets since the recent ‘disturbance. Communications had passed be t Ween ﬂag oﬂicer Montgomery and the British commander, in relation to the matter, but the result was not known. A fresh alarm occurred at Panama on the night of the 22nd, in consequence of the report that Tacho was coming With aparty of negroes to sack the city. The troops were under arms all night. Nothing haﬁpened, but new rumors were hourly created and circulated and the city was kept in a state of excitement. Terrible Aﬁ'ray. ALBANY, N. Y., Nov. 2.

From early yesterday morning up to 10 o’clock, a. dark spot. could be seen on the sun by. the naked eye, apparently covering one twenty-ﬁfth portion of its disc. At twelve o’clock it could be seen through a piece of smoked glass, but appeared considerably smal ler than it did in the morning. Such a phe nomenon, as far as known, has never before been experienced by the naked eye, and we would be pleased if some learned gentleman would throw light. on the subject. This spot which in the morning was seen in the upper portion of the right lower quarter of the sun. late in the evening could be seen in the extreme upper portion of the left lower quarter, thus changing its position—Selma. (Ala.) Reporter, 17th. Smoomn ACCIDENT.—On the morning of the 13th ult., s_ome negroes, passing along the road between Decatur-ville and Perryville, Ten nessee, found by the road side the dead body of J eﬂ'erson Kelly, who, with his - wife, had camped by a tree the night before, and lighted anﬁre _which had burned the tree so that it fell, instantly killing Kelly and breaking both legs of his wife. The woman was still alive, and properly taken care of. The tree lay across the bodies of both, and had to be lifted bodily up before they could be extricated. The poor woman had called for help for several hours, in vain, but it is thought she will recover. . Tue TROUBLE IN FLORIDA Oven.~Let‘ters faom the scene of the late insurrection in Flor ida state that the troubles are over, and that peace again reigns in the disturbed district.— The supremacy of the law has been vindicated. The parties accused, as a general thing, sub mitted to the authorities. Seventeen have been committed on a charge of murder, ten for as sault with intent to kill, and a large number were required to ﬁnd security to keep the peace. Thirty-three were committed on a charge of conspiracy. The citizen soldiers con ducted themselves in an admirable manner.

His pretensions will, of course. excite ridicule, but in attestation of their truth, he says he predicted the recent affair at Truxillo, the ﬁres in Texas, and the political fusion in New York; and now he is willing to stake the reputation of his profession upon the prediction that the fusion ticket of New York will carry the largest vote in the coming election, and Gen. Garibaldi will not survive the ﬁrst of January, 1801. DEPARTURE or Missrommms.—A party of missionaries embarked for India. from Boston on Tuesday, in the Ship Sea King, Capt. Barker.
