Col. L. L. Tate,
Dear Sirs In your issue of tho 20th
I noticed an article "from ono of tho back
townships" in reply to Dr, Johns of tho
llth inst., with Dr. John (or the writer of
that arliclo in quostion) I have no contro.
versy. But from a desire to defuso cor
rect political informations I wish to com
ment on the subject matter in that commu
nication from Mr. Township. Tho writer
said "wo bcliovo tho Republican nartv ro-
sponsihlo in tho main for thu origin of this
1 ratricidal strife, for tho very foundation
of this party aro antagonistic to the south,
as devclloped in the Philadelphia Platform
by exolusivo northern delegation."
" J hat tho twin allies of barbarism sla
very and polvRaniy wcro to bo nbolishcd."
Note what is tho Philadelphia,platform viz.
Jiesolvedj 1 hat tho constitution confers
upon congress, sovereign power over tho
Territories of tho United States for their
government and that in tho cscrciso of this
power it is both tho right and duty of Con
gress to prohibit in tho Territories thoso
twin relies of barbarism Polygamy and
slavery" tho writer also states, that that
convention "was exclusively northern.
iho states represented in that conven
tion were Maine, Ncwhanipsbirc, Vermont,
Khodo Island, Connecticut, Now York Now
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Mary-
land, Ohio, Indiana, lllinoiso, Michigan
Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Kentuoky
and California with tho Territories, Kan
sas and Nebraska.
If tho wriUr can malco all tlicso North
ern States ho may do so. But let mo ro
mind him that thcro wero two moro States
represented in that convention then in
that nominated John C. BrcckinridRo in
1600, consequently less sectional, having
at least CSS delegates, each two having
ono voto in tho convention that nominated
JohnC. Breckinridgo thcro was 210 dele
gates each two having ono voto and many
of these against tho will cf their constitu
ents as since shown by their popular ecnti
mcnt,tho writer assumcs,'that tho republi
can party is mainly to blame on tho ground
that it was offensive to tho South, is tho
fact that tho principles of tho republican
party aro oiisnsivo to tho Bouth, sufficient
ground "in tho main" to create all this
strife. 'Would it not bo better if tho writer
can provo that the party was in tho wrong,
and advocating doctrino that was uncon
stitutional t this ho did not attempt to do
for reasons cither known, or not known
Now my dear sir Washington was not
born too far South, to be quoted as au
thority by Republicans. What aro tho
doctrines in tho platform rcfercd to by tho
writer, viz: that congress has the right to
prohibit in tho Territories, not as stated
by him to abolish slavery." Why did ho
not state this correctly ! Does ho know
or does he not know, that Washington
eight years before he uttered tho sentiment
rofcrcd to, signed a bill prohibiting slavory
in all tho Territory tho United States then
had, and about ono year after, wroto to
Jjuiayctto, speaking of that net as among
tho best of his lifo and also expressed a
strong desiro to havo tho period soon to
arrivo when every Btato of this Union
8houldborid of slavery. Why! Did ho
say "Washington, warned his countrymen
against the foundation of sectional parties."
This quotation reminds mo of tho man
that sharpened a razor to cut hU own
throat, with tho idea that ha was using it
to tho best advantage. Washington, did
warn hia countrymon against tho first
dawniegs to alionato ono section from an
other. Now what is tho foundation, or
first attempt in our present strifo t
Does tho writer know, that the Kansas
removing tho "Congressional prohi
bition, known as tho Missouri Compromise,
is tho foundation and first attempt, does
ho know that tho Dred Seott decision, and
tho Buchanan endorsement followed in
rapid succession t all forming tho basis of
a sectional party, in direct opposition to
the government of Washington and Jeff
erson, and sentiments of Thomas II. Ben
ton, a southern Washington and Jcffor-
Now Mr. Back Township, you were
promised good times after the election of
Curtin ane Lincoln, why aro tho times not
getting better. The tariff has not yet been
reduced as you seemed to fear, but has
been put on a few articles that whero free,
so that it cannot bo on account of tho re
duction of duties on imports. Well tho
times are bard, that is true, and thero is
a reason for it, what is it! I will tell you,
and on this point there is no controversy
among men of any parly. It is because
thcro is a lcaguo of traitors and pirates
formed to destroy the best government in
tho world, a structuro reared by the great
ost and best men the world ever saw, with
tho immortal Washington at their head,
Congressional Debate and Speech
IIon. IIENDIUCK B. WRIGHT,
Upon the JicsoliUion of Mn. Vallandici-
UAM, of Ohio, for the appointment of
Pence Commissioner! to accompany our
Mr. Wright, I am opposed to tho amend
ment of tho gontkman from Ohio, from
tho fact that it will bo holding out to those
men who nro occupying a rebellious atti
tude, a reward for their treason
Mr. Vallandigham. Ono question, by
tho gontleman's permission. I ask whcth
cr ho is opposed to tho return of tho3o
States which have seceded from tho Un
Mr. Wright. I am not opposod to tho
roturn of thoso States which havo secedod
from tho Union.
Mr. Vallandigham. One question fur
thcr. If they desiro to return without
fighting, without striking another blow, I
ask tho gentleman if ho intends that they
shall bo mado to fight and compelled to
stand up and rcccivo our cannon shot, and
tho edge of our swords, and tho point of
our bayonets, whether thoy resist or not 1
Mr. Wright. When those gent'emen
now fighting undor the standard of rebel
lion lay down their arras
Mr. Vallandigham. That h a easo
dearly within my resolution.
Mr. Wright. And suo for pcaco, and
surrender their leaders, then I am for
poace. Great applauso in tho galleries.
It is not my purposo, Mr. Chairman, nor
my object, to carry on against theso sou
thern seceded 8tatca a war of aggressions.
It is not my purposo that it shall bo re
garded as a war of subjugation. But the
mission of tho Army of tbo loyal States
south, is to defend tho integrity of this
Govornment and maintain tho unsullied
honor of its flag ; not to rob sonthern men
of their property ; nor to interfere in any
way with tho negro question j and so long
as tho object and destiny of that Army, in
marching forward, is to proservo tho in
tegrity of tho Union, I am opposed to any
proposition of peace whilo these men hold
arms in their hands and maintain their at
titudo of hostility. And such I believe to
bo tho sentiment of the loyal men of tho
North, or of tho loyal men of the North,
Now, Mr. Chairman, I havo heard 0
great deal 6aid, sinco I havo been hero,
within this nail, and out of this IIall,about
pcaco. I want to see no pcaco that is to
bo established upon tho overthrow and
disintegration of the Republic
Here tho hammer fell.
Mr. Wright I havo not occupied fivo
minutes or three minutes.
Tho Chairman. Tho time has expired,
and the gentleman oan only proceed by
unanimous oonsent. Cries of "Go on 1"
Tho Chair hears no objection.
A Voice For fivo minutes only.
Mr. Wright. It is too lato; no re
Tho Chairman. Tho gentleman is en

Mr. Wright. No such lorras of peaco
will I voto to accept or entertain. I agree
with tho gentleman from Ohio ontirely,
that when our army marohed into Mexico,
ns also into tho Territory of Utah, thoro
were, as I understand it, commissioners
appointed by tho Government to go with
that army. But I now Gonfino my ro
marks to tho army of Mexico. Why did
wo send commissioners with that army ?
Bocauso that was a conflict between na
tions. Tho war which is being waged in
tho United Statos now is a war waged by
members of our own household.
With regard to tho caso of Utah, tho
gentleman from Ohio asks how it was thero.
It is truo that Utah, at that timo was a
Territory, and perhaps thcro would bo
somo similarity between that caso and the
present. But in this domcstio war which
is being waged on tho part of members of
our own household, I think it behooves the
General Government to attempt, at least,
toexort its power to dictato terms to them.
They aro not awaro I presume, of what
thy havo already done j neither do I be
lievc that ihcso men engaged in this wick
ed rcbollion know not only what had been
accomplished, but tho position thoy actu
ally occupy. Why, sir through tho wholo
Northern and eastern portions of tho Uni
ted States hundreds and thousand of men
who have spent a long life in proouring
tho means of subsistence and comfort, and
who regarded themselves as rich and inde
pendent, arc, to-day, in consequence of
this foul treason on the part of tho South
ern Statos, candidates for tho poor-houso.
Who has caused and produced all that
suffering, and who is to atone for it ?
Throughout the whole country you find
all kinds of business at an end ; you find
commerce suspended ; you find tho doors
of tho manufactories closed ; you find all
handicraft work abandoned ; and you find
want and famino marching over tho land.
ho has produced all this T Theso men
01 mo Bcccuing states who havo risen up
ana attempted to stnko down tho Govern
ment. Now when they come to us and
ask terms for theso unholy and unrighte
ous acts, I am willing to say to them that
wo will tako your terms into consideration
when you lay down your arms and aban
don tho project of a southern confederacy
and then wc will treat with you, and not
before. Tho oiTensos havo been to severe
nnd too groat, that havo been committed
on tho part of these southern secessionists,
to go unpunished.
Now, sir, I do not want it understood
that I advoeato what is regarded as tho
subjugation of theso men that is, that wo
want to hold their country as a conquered
territory; but I tell you, sir, what is tho
duty of this great Government 1 it is to
send our army thcro that patriotio men
may breathe in tho rear of it, if they can
not breatho in tho front of it. "Good I"
"Good !" Wherever that army haa
advanced, you find tho Union sentiment is
permitted to livo and thrivo and flourish.
How is it in regard to northwestern Vir
ginia ? Wo find her representatives upon
this floor to-day, To whatever point this
army of occupation has advanced, whero
evcr they havo permitted tho stars and
stripes to be. unfurled, we had a represen
tation in this Houso, nnd soon will havo a
representation upon tha floor of the Senate.
If northwestern A'irginia had been under
the flag of secession, would thero have
been a representation from that Stato in
cither of tho Houses to-day I No, sir.
That subjugation about which I wish to
speak in tho subjugation of traitors, in or
der that the benefits of our laws and insti
tutions shall prevail. If tho gentleman
from Ohio calls this subjugation, I tell him
i am in favor of such subjugation.

Wondorful Manuscript Discov
crlos. Tho recent troubles in Syria nro produ
cing somo very unexpected results. Tho
revolt of tho fanatical Druses, and tho ret
ributions provoked by the excesses to
which tho insano hatred of tho Maronito
Christians had led them, have resulted
in opening to tho gazo of tho civilized
world treasures, which but for that contcJt
might havo still remained buried among
tho musty possessions of tho convents of
Palestine. Hardly have tho scholars of
tho world ceased their congratulations over
tho famous Tisehcndorf manuscript tho
most valuablo literary troasuro discovered
in modern timos beforo tho announcement
is made that a rival has been found in an
Old Testament discovered at Nazareth, in
comparison with which tho former appears
almost modern in its dato.
This new trcasuro is a copy of tho Pen
tateuch, and claims to bo nt least twenty
threo hundred nnd sixty years old.
Tho best account of tho matter which
has thus far roached ns from tho pen of
Dr. Loyburn, now in Palestino, in a recent
number of tho Presbyterian. It appears
that Jl'rofessor Lcvishon, an emmcut Orv
cntsl echolal, a friend of Tischcndorfs
and for twenty yoars Profassor of Hebrew
in the University of St. Petersburg, has
for some timo been pursuing his studies
with great zeal in Jerusalem, with special
reference to tho University soon to bo
erected thcro by tho Russian Government.
Professor Levishon, in his search for
old manuscripts, went to Nazareth nearly
a year ago, and looked at a number,
amongst which was one they told hira had
been "through tiro." On examining it he
found an endorcemcnt, evidently from a
differont hand, and of lator dato than tho
original, statiDg that on a oortain occasion
thi3 with sovoral others was thrown into
tho fire as a test of its genninonoss, and
that it alone eame out uninjured. Having
returned to Jerusalem, tho Professor pur
sued his ordinary work until Bomo time
after tho Damascus and Lebanon massa
cres, when a fanatio Moslem from Damas
cus came down to Nazaroth, and began to
pcrsccuto thrco of tho Samaritan Chris
tians thcro, and on somo potty chargo had
them oast into prison. Dr. Levishon, who
had been consulted in tho mattor, inquired
of tho Russian Bishop at Jerusalem If tho
thrco Samaritans had no means of pur
chasing their ransom.
"Nono," was tho reply, "they aro vory
"No properly J"
"Nothing whatever !"
"Nothing yes thoy have a book, a very
old book, and it is ono which has been Viro'
the fire 1"
Professor no soonor hoard this than bu
saw himself in anticipation tho owner of
this rare old treasure, no at onco mado
a largo offer for tho book ; tho prisoners
wero released and tho book becamo his
property. On a closer scrutiny of the
manuscript it was found, from an inscrip
tion, to bo, as already stated, at least two
thousand threo hundred and sixty years
old. It is endorsed as having been in tho
hands of Zerubabel, who built tho second
Jivan thu ancient manuscript is surpas
sed by another, which has long been known
to bo in existence, known as tho ''Samari
tan Pentateuch," and which has; hitherto
boon studiously withheld from the eyes of
scholars, but which Professor Lovishon
has recently been permitted to csamino,
and of a portion of which ho has mado
photographio fac simile copies. During
tho interesting researches connected with
this famous manuscript, Dr. Levishon found
upon it an inscription which places it ho
says "beyond all doubt that this identical
parchment copy of tho Pentateuch (tho
Samaritan) was mado by a grandson of
Aaron, and tho grand-nephew of Moses."
Wo must confess that these discoveries
seem almost too wonderful for belief and
yet tho etctementa of such a scholar as
Professor Lovishon seem hardly to leave
us room to doubt their substantial cor
rectness. Verily that littlo despised town
of Zobulon has been strangely honored I
It was hero that Christ lived for thirty
years. It was hero that no preached hia
urst sermon, and now after tho lapso of
almost twonty centuries, it is Nazareth to
whioh is reserved tho honor of oiving tho
most ancient manuscript copies of tho Old
icstamcnt to tho world. Indeed thu last
mentioned copy of tho Pentateuch, if wo
arc to accept tho dates ssignod it, must
havo been more than a thousand years old
at tho timo of tho Savior's birth. Who
shall say that the eyes of Christ havo not
rested upon, and His hands handled, this
thrice sacred volumo, or that when Ho
went into the synagoguo of this very town,
"and stood up to read," as Ilia custom
was on tho Sabbath day," that he did not
sometimes open this very boot I
Miko Fink and tlio Bull.
Miko tools a notion to go in Bwimming
ono hot Sunday morning, and had just
got hia clothes off, when he saw Deacon
Smith's bull making nt him tho bull wa
a vicious animal, and had como near kill
ing two or threo persona consequently,
Miko felt rather "jubus." no didn't want
to call for help, for ho was naked, and tlio
nearest placo from whenoo assistanco could
arrivo was tho meeting houso, which was
nt that timo filled with worshippers,among
whom was "tho gal Miko was paying his
devours to." So ho dodged tho bull a
tho animal camo nt him, and managed to
catch him by tho tail. Ho was dragged
around till nearly dead, and when ho
thought ho could hold no longer, ho made
up his mind ho had better "hollor." And
now wo will let him toll his own ntory .
"So looking at tho matter in all its bear
ings, I cum to tho conclusion that I'd bet
ter let somebody know whar I was. So I
gin a louder yell than a locomotive whistlo
and it warn't long beforo I seed tho Doa
con'a two dogs n comin' down as if thoy

knowed who they wcro arter they'd jino

wero orful wenomous, and had a spito agin

gettin' astrido of him ; then, if you'd lia
thar, you'd havo sworn thar warn't nothin
human in that ar mix ; tho silo flew eo or
fully as tho critter and I rollod round tho
field ono dog on ono sido, and ono on tho
other tryin' to clinch my feet. I prayed
and cussed, nnd cussed and prayed, until
I couldn't tell whioh I did at last and
neither warn't no uso, they war eo orfully
Well, I rcokon I rid about half an hour
this wy, when old brindlo thought it wa
timo to slop to tako in a supply of wind,
and cool off a little. So when ho got
round to a tree that stood thar, ho natu
rally halted. Sosozl, old -boy, you'll
loso one passenger, sartin. So I jist olum
np a branch kalkcrlatin' to roost thar till
I starved, aforo I'd bo rid round that or
way any longer. I war a raakin tracks
for tho top of tho tree, when I heard snth
in' a makin' a orful buzzin' over head. I
kinder looked up, and if thcro warn't
well, thar'a no use o, awearin' now, but
war tho biggist hornets nest over built.
You'll 'gin in,' now, I rcckon.Miko, 'cauw

I'll rido to tho next station anyhow, let

sco what I had gained by changin' quar

wasn't nigh half a bushol of the singin'

Well, Ireokon they got it, for 'all hands
started for our company. Somo on 'm

tho rest charged on brindlo. This timo
tho dogs led off fust, dead bent for old

could get under head way, vro followed.
And as I war only a deck passenger, and
had nothin to do with stecrln' tho craft, I
