diiturbing ultraism, is not a consistent
Union loving patriot, and that party who
uphold them aro just as much traitors as
those who unfurl tho standard of open
rebellion in tho Sou h. Both aro anima
ted by tho same dangerous spirit, and tho
foundation of their opposition to tho gov
ernment is predicted unou tho same ideas,
and based upon tho samo nation destroy
ing principle, and should be reistcd by
tho patriotic, conservative men of all par
ties. In this crisis party is out of tho
question, and must give placo to love of
country. It becomes us to lo.-c the par

t':i.auco of tho government tho all absorb

present good or futuro security. And
whatever militates against it, como from
whatever quarter of tho country, should
bo promptly branded as disloyal, though
it should fall from iho lips of a venerable
Senator. Ago cannot dignify rebellion or
givo eharacier to treason
Wc havu been led to these remarks from
reading tho following declaration of Air.
Fessondcn, of Maine, in tho Uu'ttcd States

"As thu gcu'leman from I)'.cntucky ,has

What menus tho words, lio "desires
more to sco the extermination of slavery
than tho restoration of tho Union 1" Great
God 1 can such sentiments inhabit tho
breast of a man claiming to bo a patriot?
What is the extermination pf fclavory when
compared with the .restoration pf tho
Union ? Who so callous to all tho noblo
emotions of tho patriotic soul, as to weigh
tho former against tbe latter ? The restor
ation of the Union embalmed in our hearts,
and connected with our highest, fondest,
and holiest hopes, is of more consequence
to this people than all things earthly be
side. To pamo in this tho day of its
gloom and hour of its travail, when tho
red, right hand of treason would sovcr and
destroy it, and estimate it as of less valuo
than tho freedom of the slaves, is an ex
hibition of disaffection to tho government
that should placo upon, the brow of those
who uttor such sentiments, the plague ppot
of disloyalty. In tho House of Repre
sentatives, Mr. Conway, of Kansas, another
of the ultras, used tho following lauguago :
"For one, I shall uot vote auothor dol
ar or man for the war until it assumes a
different standing, and tends directly to
an anti slavery result. Millions for free
dom, but not one cent for slavery I"
Here, then, is another kiudrcd declara
tion, that unless tho emancipation of tho
slaves is mado tho sine que non in the
prosecution of tho war, ho will not vote
another dollar or man for tho defence of
tho Federal Government 1 Did the rankest
traitor iu tho South ever utter language
implying more hostility to tho nation than
this niisreproscntativc of the sovereign
State of Kansas, and yet his presenco is
endured in the Congicis of tho nation?
Why is he permitted to retain a scat
among the patriots of that body '
Wo have cited these two instances to
show that disunion is not confined to the
South alono, but ha its advocates in the
Xorth, and these, with the largo vote for
Ashley's disunion s-chemo, alarms us. And
if our warning voice could be heard thro'
out the land, wo would urg? the conserva
timo men of all parties to unite in the
common effort to ciujIi out this disunion
sentiment. Wherever it esists, it is tho
foe to the peace of this nation, and is pre
meditating the destruction of the govern
ment. Lot us look at those things uot in
a party aspect, but as our fathers when
they wisely framed the government, looked
only to the origination of those institutions
which should secure tho greatest good to
I the greatest number, and confer rich bless
ings upon generations yet unborn. Slavery
may sink by i' i weight of its own curso
and fanaticism wear itself out, but our
country, through tho patriotism of her
j sons escaping unhurt from the present eon
' fiiet, it is hoped, shall put on tho blessed
j robes of pcaeo and dispense governmental
j blessings unto us and all the inhabitants,
j when thu Union haters, North and South,
I shall ileep in graves of infamy so deep
that, oblivion will enshroud their memories.
There disuuionists wero properly re
'buked by Mr. Carlisle, of Virginia, in the
United States Senate, whose remarks we
append : .
! ''1 have read from tho speech of the
I member fiom Kansas, becauso, in my
opinion, it is a representative hpeceh, and
becauio ho has had tho boldness to avow
; what I believe arc the real views of his
1 party, but what hi-i party associates, less
. bold thau himself, for prudential reasons
, do not avow. If a member from a slave
, State had uttered such sentiments as those
1 have "ad from tho speech of tho mem
ber from Kansas, thu whole air would
have been filled with tho cry of disloyalty
1 and his expulsion doinanded. The press
that clamored so loudly for tho expulsion
of the late Senator from Indiana, aud the
rejection of tho Senator from Oregon, is
i ngaged iu applauding the sentiments of
the member from Kansas. Thoso touti
incuts are, as 1 havo shown you, that un
ices tho Confederate States aro recognized
as an independent power and war is waged
j upon them for tho abolition of slavery,
not a man or dollar of money will tho
member from Kansas vote. Let a mem
ber from a slavo State of cither House
ndeelaro.that ho would unices the so cal

States aud lipid them as subject provinces,
but only to secure .constitutional guaran

think you, would ho or ought ho to retain
his seat in Congress t And ot, what would

"For more than twenty-five years, Mr.
Prcsidout, tho representatives of the abo

pulled tho same string at difforcut cuds,

Acting Major General Jitmos Shields is
a native of Tyrone, in Ireland, whero ho
I was born in tho year 1810. IIo is conso
, quontly about fill years of ago. In 1832
ho went West, and Ecttlcd in Kaskaskia,
ono of tho oldest village iu lllinois,wlicrc
ho devoted his oncrgics to tho study and
l practico of tho law. lie was noon after
elected to the State Legislature and in
; 1830 was mado Stato Auditor. Four
years later ho was appointed Judge of the
i Supremo Court, and in 1845, having ro
, ceived from President Polk tho appoint
j mont of Commissioner of tho General
Land Office, ho removed to Washington.
Upon tho breaking out of tho Mexican war
during tlio following year, the samo Pres
ident, with rare discrimination and appre
ciation of character, appointed Mr. Shields
a Brigadier General of tho United States
Volunteers. I lis commission was dated
July lit, IS 10. lie was present at the
siege of Vera Cruz, and even there was
particularly noted. At the battle of Cer
ro Gordo ho distinguished himself greatly
and was the second time naturalized a cit
hjo of the United States by shedding his
1 blood iu defenco of his adopted country's
honor. A recital of Gen. Shields' deeds
I at that battle seems more like tho details
of tho great actions of some famed hero of
romance than tho plain narrative of one of
"Polk's raw Generals," as the opposition
' styled him when appointed, Severely
wouudcdjho continued on the field, urging
on his men, until a ball passing through
. his lungs, struck him down, lie was car
ried from the battle-field, and was repor
ted so near dead that obituary notices ap
peared of the gallant General in nearly all
the papers of tho country. Even in the
neighborhood of the battle-ground his life
for weeks was di.paircd ot', and the anec
dote of his cure is remarkable, as it would
appear impi'obablo did not the man live
among uu at the presont time to verify the
' statement. It appears that he was entire
ly given over by tho army surgeons, when
a Mexican doctor said ho would live if he
would let him remove tho coagulated blood
from tho wound. Shield's as a kill or
cure remedy, told him to try, and a fine
silk handkerchief was worked and finally
drawn through the wound, removing the
extravasatcd blood, when daylight could
be seen through the hole. And yet Shields
to day is a bale and hearty iiiau,frec from
, diseaso or any inconvenience from his
' wound, -.Yhkii was considered at the time
as mortal, having been mado by a largo
copper ball, and going directly through
his body and lung. For his gallant aud
mcritorioui conduct on this occasion ho
was, iu August 1'H, brcvetted a Major
General of Volunteers. Still suffering
from his wounds, we find him commanding
a brigade in the valley of Mexico, consist
ing of a battalion of marines and regi
ments compo.-ed of New York and South
Carolina Volunteers. IIo was also in the
battle Chcpultcpeo, whero being unhorsed,
ho foajrht on foot, bareheaded and in his I
shirt t lecvcs, leading his brigade, sword iu
hand, with a bravery that has made his
name remarkable in American history.
Uo was again wounded, and that danger

tution he recovered. His brigade, after
performing valorous deeds, ending in the
capturo of the city of Mexico, was disban
ded on the Ullth, of J.uly, 1843. Tho
war being ended, Gen. Shields laid down
.the sword, and assumed once more bis
placo iu civil life.
IIo was brilliantly received on his ar !
rival in tho United States ; and when he ;

he was elected to fill tho position vacated j
by Mr. Drecsc that of Senator from this

Senate, leaving at tho samo timo Illinois,
and went to settle on tho lands awarded
to him for his services in the array, wh.ieh
lauds ho had selected in thu torritory of
Minnesota. When that territory became
a Stato, Shiolds was returned to ropresent
it in Congress as a Senator, and .took ,his
seat after its admission in May 1658. Gen.
Shields having drawn tho Bhort term, ho

Mysterious Affair at Norristoww.
A mysterious affair took placo at Norris
town, on last Friday night. Ttscems that
a young man by the name of Druncr, a
storekeeper at Eaglesvillc, about five miles
abovd Norristown, was paying attention
to a lady residing at the last named place
and was about to bo married to her. lie
visited her on last Friday night, and ho
started from a hotel at tho placo, where
ho had put tin his horse and wagon, on
his return home, at about midnight. At
tho house of a lady, and at the hotel, Mr.
Druncr appeared to be in tho best possible
spirits. About au hour after ho left the
hotel, his horse, a very quiet animal, made
his appearance at the first toll gato above
Norristown. in a very good condition, and
not having tho appearance of a runaway.
The wagon was without a driver, and the
gato-keepcr, who know iho owner of the
animel well, started in search of him.
No trace could bo found of Mr. D. uutil
tho following day, when his hat, watch
and ncck-tio wero discovered scattered
along the bank of Stony Creek,
within tho limits of the town, and near a
point where tho Creek ii crossed by a
bridge. The body was fouud in tho Creel;
near this spot. ' Thcro were no marks of
violence upon the person of the deceased,
nor were tho valuables that were about
his person or in the wagon disturbed. Au
inque.'t was held and a verdict was ren
dered that the deceased came to his death
from violence at the hands of tome per
son or persons unknown to the jury.
There was no evidence whatever that vio
lence had bcon used, au the cause of his
death rem aius a profound mystery not
withstanding the verdict of tho cjrouor's
TiiE IiuiErunssuii.E Conflict. Said
a laboring man, the other day, who had
been in the habit of voting ths Republican

And eo it will bo, of course. If these
States aro overrun with wandering and
half civilised negroes, compelled to work
simyly for their bread and clothes, tho
price of labor will naturally run down to
a low figure, and tho white laborers will
feel tho first procure.

Mary went out in the gloaming. Mary
went out with her haby at her breast. She
leaned against the little cato. and looked
back at the bright wood fire, glowing it
tho hearth of tho little, homely cabiu, tho
white bed, the baby a cleau cradle. She
thought with pride of tho nicely-cooked
supper, ready to placo upon tho table-
She laughed as nho pressed her baby (tho
baby he had uover seen) to her ojpectapt
bosom. How often ho said sho wouli
never do to bo a poor man's wife; her
hands were too small ; she was too tiny to
do all her work in the lonely couutry.
All day sho had worked cheerfully, joy
fully, to m ko everything clean, neat and
tasteful; talking baby-talk and looking at
tho clock, Now all was ready. Sho would
soon hear the roar and whistle of tho loco
motive sound over the trees- She listened

William always walked from tho itatiou
in a half hour. "I bhall not go to meet
him, for my boy would take cold in tho
night air." Sho turned, went into her
cabin, moved about with a beating hoart,
laid tho little sleeper into his cradle, loot
ed, and thoucht how kind and cood of tho
Colonel it was to givo William a furlough
wtien tie telu linn lie had never sosa hia
boy tho dear, bluo-cyed boy. "Yes,darr
ling, you shall soon smile iu your father's
face" Leaving the cradlo, she walkod
again to tho gato ; listening intently, sha
heard no footsteps only tho wind signing
among the troo top3, and her own heart
th ob. Sho gazed into the distant night;
saw nothing but tho darkened woods and
the old pine that stood like a sentry
at tho end of tho lane. "But
ho dees not come. If he doss not oomo iu
twenty minutes more. I will know that ho
is coming on the midnight train." Twon
'ty thirty minutes yos, an hour no
whistle, no foot steps. Sho returned to
her cabiu, weary, desolate, to wait, watch
and listen for the next train ; to reason
with her fears; to weave conjectures why
ho did not, como. Ho had been behind

tried to siug ; her voice sounded costrang

placed tho lamp iu tho window and door,
so that light might flash out that ho could
sec it away off. With parched lips and
throbbing pulses, now standing in t)B

at the solemn, changeless stirs full for it

moaned and made mysterious whispers
among crisp leaves, and sighed away in
mclnacholy sobbings. Mid
night came throught deep night, the
roaring locomotive swept its ssouud over
hills and woods, and died among distant
hills. Gladness joyful expectation htd

rushed to tho gate, .tliun to the old firji

moved pat. It was still grey aud dark
when she left her cabin, tho food cooked

the station and meet tho early train."
The mist rolled up, unheeded by Mary.
T.iso rose flushed the east unseen. Tho
fairy webs, woven from leaf to leaf, dropt
her diamonds without her notice. Tho
