HRTTM FOR THE COU'MEtA DEMOCRAT
by p. ir. r.
Tho curfew toll. IIjc knell of janlngdoy."
''The ftound,aflbc churcli-gntrg holl
Tliee vtillie. and rqkfl pever heard."
Wo are' seated near tho window, watch
ing the fading beauties of tbo day of rest'
All naluro fccms to bo governed by the
great command "Sis days shalt thou la
bor," tsB earth, air and sea aro wrapt in
Nut a leaf is rustled by tho gentle
btccze, not an iniort chants jts matin
hymn, tho evening orison of the feathered
bonctcr is hushed in thu (trove. Hut harV I I
borne on the wind, conies faintly to tho
ear, tho joyful ring of tho " old church
bell." Could wo but lopk iDto the hcatt
and record tho different emotions called
forth by its pool, how varied, how interest
ing would bo tho record. To tho christiap,
it speaks of a dying Saviour, of sins foi
L'ivcn, of the wild;to come, and ho histens
to meet " two or three who are assembled
together in His name," To the sinner, it
peaks tho vengoanco of an offended Cod
It tells him, iu language, not to bo misun
derstood, that he is drawing nearer to the
confines of a hell that is yawning t) receive
h'm. To many, it conveys ,uo meaning
thoy heed not its call, perhaps scarcely
hear its solemn summons.
But now the pcoplo aro wending their
way to tho varinus sanctuaries of tho Lord.
1 et us, in imagination, .enter each church,
and bond n listening car to tho words of
wisdom surely wo aro members of tho
samo great body. Wo wrship ono God.
tWo acknowledge ono Kedoomcr. Wo
look fur tho nsurrcction of thu body, and
tbe'lifo overlaying. If this bo tho facts
and wo think n"no will deny it, Why do
wo hoar hurled from tho saercd desk, tbe
anathema of one branch of this great con
federacy against their brethren ? Why is
not tho hand of christian fellowship ex
tended to every ono? Is tho gospel not
frcoto all? Kvcn tho themo for tho even
ing's meditation. "Christ dud for all,"
Epeaks.the bouudlessness of- tho proviion.
If in hoavon wo commemorate tho mfliir-
ings of the baviour, will any bo excluded ?
Will different forms of worship diviilo the
spirits of tho redeemed ? Alas, wo feir,
after all efforts to sproad tho gospel, that
too much uncharitabloncss pervades tho
human heart. We aro not willin to accord
to our brother tho privilege wo claim for
ourselves. That of worshipping God as
our conrcieiico dictates. There is too little
of tho fpirit of the founder of our faith
manifested, oven by thoso who profess to
be governed by his teachings.
Uut tho solemn benediction has been
pronounced, and slowly tho assembled
multitudo pass from tho " tomplo of tho
Slost Ilinh." Lost in fanciful reveries,
nnd in contemplation of tho goodness, tho
mercy aud iho lovo of God, wo remember
uaught, savo tho impressive wordsr"Ctrc'i
died far all."
Hash ATTESirr at Suicide. On
Suudtiy last a young married woman,
named Elizabeth Taylor attempted suicido
by jumping from a ferry boat into iho
Dclawaro at Philadelphia, Several persons
were ready to jump after her, but seeing
that her 'dress, a silk one, wjth plenty of
hoops beneath it bore her up, they awaited
! tho action of tho engineer, who instantly
backed tho boat and in a fow minutes sho
was brought on board tho boat, considerably
wot, but not tho loast. injured.

Genii EMtx : On my rccent rcturu to
this city, nfter a fortnight's absence, your
memorial, without date, was placed in my
hands, through the agency ol Sir. Horatio
Kiiij;, of tho Post Offico Department, to
whom it had been entrusted. From tho
disfinguished source from whence it pro
ceeds, as well as its peculiar character, I
havo deemed jt proper to depart from my
general rulo in'such cases, and to give it
You first assert that "Tho fundamental
nrincinlo of I ho Constitution of tho United
States, and of our political institutions, is1
that thoeoplo shall make their own laws,
nnd elect their own rulers." You then
express your grief aud astonishment that
I should havo violated this principle, and
through Governor Walker. -havo employed tof all grievances, undertook to crea,to an
an army, "ono of tho purposes of which , independent .Government for thomsclvcs.
is to forco 'ho pocplo of Kansas to" obey , Had lbj3 attempt proved successful, it
laws, not their own, nor of tho United I would, of course, havo subverted tho exist
States, but laws, which it is notorious and jng Government, prescribed and recognized
established upon evidence, they never mado, by Congress, and substituted a revolution-
and rulers thoy never elected." And as a
corollary from tho loregoing, you represent
that I am "openly held up, and proclaimed
to tho great derogolion of our National
character, as violating in its most essential
particular, lhe solemn oath which tho Pro -
sident has taken to support tho Constitution
of this Union."
These are heavy charges, proceeding

and if well founded ought to cousign my
uamo to infamy. But in proportion to
their gravity, common justico, to say nnth-

In tho opinion of, tho Territorial Legislature
of Kansas, the. timo had arrived for entering
the Union, aiid thoy accordingly passed a
law to (ilcot delegates', for tbo purpose of
framiog a Elate Constitution. This law
was fair and just in its provisions. It
conferred the right of suffrage on every
bona fide inhabitant of tbo Territory, and
for tho purpose of preventing fiaud and
tho intrusion of citizens of near or distant
States, tnostpropcrly confined this .right to
thoso who had resided therein three months
previous to tho election, Hore -frus a fair
opportunity presented for all qualified
resident citizens' of tho territory, to what
everorganization thoy might have prerously
belonged, to participate in the election, and,
to express their opinions at the ballot box
on the question of slavery, lint numbers
ot lawless men still continued to resist the
regular territorial government. They re

members of tho Convcntiop were elected

'1 ho Convention will soon assemble to
porform tho solemn duty of framing o

imperative duty to employ tho troops of
tho United States. Should this bccomo

against violence, while framing a Constitu
tion, and iu protecting tho bonaftdc iahabi
tants qualified to voto under the provisions
of this instrument, in tho freo exercise of
the right of suffrago when it shall bo submit
ted to them for their approbation or rejection,
I have entire confidence in Governor
Walker, that tho troops will not be employed,
except to resist acutal aggression, or in the
execution of tho laws ; and this, not until
tho powers of the Civil Magistrate shall
prove unavailing. Following tho wise
example of Mr. Madison towards tho
Ilartfnrd Convention, illegal anddangcrous
combinations, such as ,that of tho Topeka
Convention, will not be disturbed, unless
they shall attempt to porform soino act
which will bring thorn into actutl collision
with tho Constitution and tho laws. In
j that event, they shall be resisted and put
down by tho whole power of tho Govern
ment. In performing this duty, I havo the
approbation of my own concieuce, jand as I
humbly trust, of my God.
I thank you for the assurance that you
