A Peculiarly Rich and Stunning Discussion
2m Demuratie Meeting-at VermVljon, Ohio
. Hon. Sim.. Ox Interrupted hy an Abolition
Doctor1 from Oberlin Ckx questions Ihm
.piendii Political Tilt.
MiJiy of oar readers do not know that
quite a nomber of Republicans were at the
Demscraiic Meeting at Vermillion on the
,. 7ih iaotaot. Tr.e crowd, as have have here
tofore said, was immense ; and in a West
era ELeeerve county, only a fe miles from
tbe seat -oi AbolitionisQi, Oberlin, it could
sat well be otherwise than that a good and
g idly sprinkling of fanatics were on baud,
thongh we do not suppose they would av
erage one to eveiy hundred in attendance.
The Eepubiicans, however being astonish
ed al tb! turo out, claimed that many of
their paiiy attended the meeting. If this :.s
tlia lact, we failed to discover them, as all,
with unit exception, cheered the speakers
and appeared 10 be "at home."
VVbea Mr. Pendleton spoke a certain
learned Doctor, (Bigelow, we believe bis
came ia ) of Oberlin, began, as Cox expres
ten it, ''to propound interrogatories.'' He
" tried some dozen on the Cincinnati Con-
j reestnan, who deftly drew him oat into the
, admission that be didn't want the old Un
ion with slavery. After he bad been lah
i;d into seeming good order by Mr. Pendle
ton, be'again essayed to ''propound" while
Mr. Cox was speaking. The surgical op

tion immediately beneath him; the crowd
' 'pre weJ tip close, and at the first fire all be
came eiiger to hear. Tbe large stand ira
meiiau'ly overcrowded with people. .
Mr. Cox was declaring that, however
wrong jmd disloyal Democrats might be, it
did not become the Western Reserve Re-
publicins to reproach them. He would
take nd lesoon of patriotism from such sedi
tious p?eple. He would not call names;
be would leave it to his opponents, if be
.paid th t the Republicans of the Reserve
ware Abolitionists, nullifiers and Secession
isti, hi wonld prove it, and by their own
Mes.itnny. If he could not convince them
of the virtue of Demtxracy, he would at

when we get throngb. Judging by the way
your forehend retreata'so rapidly, I hare
bandied vour belters. A lauah Wen
dell Philips said : ,
"Until 1846 we thought ii possible tokill
slavery and save the Uniou " We then
paid; "Over tbe ruin of the American
Church and the Union is tbe only way to
fraedora." . From 1846 to 1861, we preach
ed that lesson. By your admission to
Mr. Penledon that yon are not for thn old
Union, yon have also been hand in hand
with Wendell Philips. Perhaps yon were
honest in it. You do not wish to be pirli
cepts criminss with the poor sinners and
criminals who hold slave, do you eirl
Dr. B 'Never.'
Mr. Cox Then you will not commune
with such sinners in Church, nor unite with
them in State
Dr. B. I would make all men equal be
Mr. Cox You thereforejwo'd destroy the
Union rather than to associate religiously
or politically with slaveholder?. What are
you then but a disuniontst 1 f Cheers) You
are a twin brother to Jeff. Davis. (Laughter)
If you hail from Oberlin, you do doubt join
ed with.lbe other saints in commeroating
John Brown's death, or in the dark and
stormy 2d of December, 1859; when Vir
ginia hang him aid sent his soul on the
downward march. (Laughter) Wbei your
Rev. Brewster and your negro orator, Lang
ston, defied the horse thief, and murderer,
you were then, I doubt not.
Mr, B. assented.
Mr. Coi You shouted when Langston
paid ; "But why preserve the Union, since
its only object is to eternalize slavery.
Such a Union is not worth perpetuating
With all my heart I would s&y lei it b
aboliched. I hate a Uuion of thpse Slates
as I hate the devil, for by it I am bereft of
every right as a ci:izen , and denied ail pro
tection for ray personal liberty " Oh ! je,
personal liberty was a great thing for ne
groes, when you defied the Constitution ;
but it is a poor thing for a white man like
Va'landinsham, when the Constitution is
At this of your Reserve disun-
ionists and I read it from a pamphlet 1
printed by your friends it was resolved
(page 8,) that 'in -och a contest and under
such a dire necessity, we may say, let free
dom stand, though the Union be dissolved."
The dire necessiiy was the choking of John
Browu. Becanre Virginia did that, you
would not live with her in the Union. 1
submit it to yon, now, whether you did not
deserve his fate? Cheers
This people will remember the Welling
ton rescue cases. A batch of Revolution
ists of Oberlin strove to break down the
Federal authority right here ThiF man be
fore may have helped rescue the negro boy
John from the United Slates officers. He ia
a pretty person to call on others to npport
the Feperal Government. These Oberlin
rescuars sought like South Carolina, the
agency of the State to do it. The Republi
can Governor Chase and his Attorney Gen
eral helped it on. I have the account of
that meeting in a Republican paper. Here
it is! Here Mr. Cox held up the Ohio
State Journal, of May 26 1859, pretty well j You do not deserve the attention I bestow,

the Republican party. Laughter.
Dr. B Let we eee it, if yoa please.
Mr. Cox banded it to tbe Doctor. He
looked it over, wiped his specks and pro
nounced it "genovine."
Mr. Cox This paper says there were
tenor twelve thousand Republicans from
Reserve present. No doubt Oberlin was
there. Laughter Perhaps yon were
there, sir ?
Dr. B Yes, I was ; and am proud of it.
Mr. Cox And yoa approved of their ac
tion and resolutions ?
Dr. B Yea sir, I do and did.
Mr. C Now 1 have you. If I did not
prove yoa to be secessionist, revolutionist
and nullifier. tuen there is no truth in your
statements. I read further that this vast
meeting marched into Cleveland, with ban.
ners. with revolutionary devices and music,
John Brown had not then been bang, else
they woatd have sung bis march instead cf
the "Marsailles." Old men were pot at
the bead of the procession, with flags im
printed with "1796." Then came the Lor

is the Democracy that i reproached as dis
loyal by such scam of sedition as floated to
the surface then, and has floated ever since.
This meeting was a type of the Repu'li.
can party It followed Lincoln's doctrine.
Every prominent Republican in Ohio was
there, by persan or letter. You, my sweet
evangelical friend, voted for one ot tbe Com
mittee on Resolutions, Mr. Blake, and made
him Congressman. Chase approved by
speech, and Denoison by lettei, of the meet
ing and iis objects. GiJdtngs was Presi
dent. Perhaps you have heard of him.
Dr. 3 A nobler man dos not breatho.
Mr. C No doubt ou approved of his
course. He told Mr. Ewing in his lelt;r of
the 7th of November, I860, that when he
"held up to the Republicans, the hurttbug
01 dissolution, that he was a coward, and
an unvirile minion rf the slave power"
you thought him a prophet When hu ad
vised you to shoot down the United Stales
officers, with warrants for fugitive slaves,
as pirates, you thought him a loyal patriot.
When he glorified the State habeas ccrpiis,
and the guarantee for the liberty of negroes,
you thought him a wise man. But now,
when your party despise habeas coipus out
rages, personal freedom for white men, and
by the perjury of an Ohio Governor, per
mits a white roan to be banished, not for
crime, but for prevention, you think you
are so high in your loyalty that all Demo
crats are "Copperhead traitors." (Cheers)
So much for Giddings and the inciviem he
taught and you followed

would prove this Oberlin Evangelist to be
a Secessionist. What else do Jeff. Davis
and his confederates hold but that they will
not have United States laws enforced on an
"unwilling people?" This is Lincoln's doc
trine of 1848; and these Reserve disorganiz
ers, aided by Chase,;Delano Dennison &Co.,
have been the friends and aiders of Secessionist-;
for they afforded the pretext and
gave the provocation to Southern revolt.
Con-ull the ordiance of secession, and,
Judge Brinkerhoff's dissenting opinion in
the habeas corpus case from Oberlin, and
you will find this nullification doctrine laid
down almost as recorded in this Republican
platform. It is the State Rights Calhoun
doctrine intensified and eularged far beyond
what Madison ever dreamed, and far be
yond what democrats ever dreamed when
they nsed it in their platforms. Madison
never proposed to make nullification or
secession the remedy for any grievance:
but his remeday, was, as ours is, under the
Constitution and by its amendments. This
was,and "Democratic doc rii.e And Abo
lition made itself as secession did, the sole
judge; above the Supreme Court, above all

Only an Irishmen.
A correspondent of the N. Y. fForll writ
ing from Philadelphia; August 8, says : In
June last, during the excitement caused by
the opening, in a fashionable mansion on
Chestnut street, of a negro recruiting depot,
nnder the auspices of the so-called 'Loyal'
League, 'Cnlontr Thomas, one of the most
active mm:t.rsol that body being asked,
'What do you intend to do with these men V
replied, 'To 6hoot down the G dd d
The gallent colonel's intentions were car
ried into effect on Thursday last. Oa the
Ctellan Hills, the most lovely spot in tbe
vicinity of this city, a choice space of
irou:vi has been taken possession of to
form a nesro ramp.
On Thursday evening list, an Irishman,
living with Mrs John Butler as coachman,
in the immediate vicinity of the camp, was
returning with his wife and three ftnall
children the youngest of seven from an
ineffectual attempt to get off a younger
brother who had been drafted.
Proceeding along a public highway, he
arrived two hundred yards from borne, on
the edge of the wood in which an encamp
ment is located. Here he and his party
were stopped by the challenge of a sentry.
This proved to be a negro on the other side
of the fence separating the camp from the
road Alter answering his challenge, the
negro ordered the pirty to move on. The
woman and the two elder children did so.
The Irishman with the youngest child in
his hand, stayed time enough to remark,
'Woy should I move on. I am on a public
highway.' The negro hailed ihe corporal
of the guard, 'Here's a fellah hyur won't
move on.' The immediate reply was 'Shoot
him.' This order was al once obeyed.
The negro fired; the bullet, narrowly miss
ing the child pas-ed through the Irishman's
wrist, and entered the intestines. The man
fell and died in twenty minutes.
Colonel Wagner, the officer commanding
the regiment has written to Washington
justifying the occurrence on the ground that
the man was an Lifki in.
An Item for thc Home Circle. Some
says, and truly too, that there are few fami
lies, anywhere in which love is not abused
as furnishing the license for impoliteness.
A husband, father, or trother, will speak
harsh words to those be loves best, simply
because the security of love and family
pride keeps him from getting his head
broken. It is a shame that a man will
speak more impolitely, at times to his wife
or sister than he would to ar.y other female,
except a low vicious one. li is thus that
the honest affections of a man's nature
prove to be weaker protection to a woman
ic tbe family circle than tbe restraints of
society, and that a woman usually is in-
debted for the kindest politeness of life to
those not belonging to her own household.
Things ought not to be so. The man who,
because it will not be resented, ioflicls bis
spleen and bad temper upon those of his
heartstone, is a small crowd and a very
mean man. Kind wards are circulating
mediums between true gentlemen and
ladies at home, and no polish exhibited in
society can atone for the harsh language
nd disrespectful treatment too often indulg
ed in between those bound together by
God's own lies of blood, and the more sa
cred bonds of canjugal love.

to see him corne and spend the day, fctchin'
my sister to see me and my wife, ifjhe hadn't
,lowd his tongue to run so 'bout nigger?
and slavery, and the equality of the races,
and the duty overthowing the Constitution
of the United States, and a lot of other
things, some of which made me mad, and
the best of them right sick. I puzzled my
brains a good deal to think how I could
make him shut up his noisy head 'bout
Wall, one time when my brother-in-law
came over to stay, an idea struck me. I
hired a nigger to help me haying time; he
was the biggest, strongest, greatest nigger
you ever see. Black, he was blacker than
a black cat, and jest as shiny as a new
beaver hat. I spoke to him 'Jake,' says
I, 'when you hear the breakfast bell ring
don't say a word, but you jest come into
the parlor and sit down among the folks
and eat your breakfast.' The nigger's eyes
stuck out of his head about a leet. 'Your
jokin massa, sez he, 'I shan't haveo time
to wash myself and change my shirt.' 'So
much the better,' sez L Wall' breakfast
came and so did Jake, and set down 'long
side my brother-in-law. Ho started but
didn't say a word. There want no mistake
about it. Shut your eyea and you'd kuow
it for he was loud, I tell jou. There was
a first-rate chance to talk Abolitionism, but
bro;t.er-in-law never opened his mouth.
' 'Jake,' sez I, 'you be on hand al dinner
j lime,' and he was. He had been workin'
in the medder all the forenoon it was as
hot as hickory and bilin' pitch, and but
I leave the rest to your own imagina
tion. "Wall, in the afternoon, brother in-law
came cp to me madder than a short tailed
bull in hornet lime.
" 'Moae ,' sez he, 'I want to speak to you,'
" 'Sing it out,' sez I.
" 'I han't but few words to say, sez he
'bat if that ere confounded nigger comes to
the table while I'm stopping here I'll clear
"Jake ate bis supper in the kitchen that
night, but from that day to this I never
heard my brother-in law open bis bead
about Abolitionism. When the emancipa
tion proclamation was issued I thought
he'd let out some, but he didn't, for he
know that Jake was still working on the
Libert? or thic Ballot Illustrated.

desire came to tbe ears of a Quaker, who
thereuporshad an interview with the young
gentleman, and said :
"I can core thee of that bad habit."
Whereupon the youth caught hold of the
Quaker's band and gave it a. hearty shake
"How can you perform that miracle ?"
"I can tall ihee, I have heard that Jthou

thou shall come to my house, pat on the
cocked hat, the coal without buttons, the
knee-breeches, and the shoe-bucklea ; and

The youn? man cheerfully assented to
the proposal and accompanied the Quaker
to his house, where, after changing Jhis
clothes, he took his departure in the garbjof
a Quaker and went on his way rejoicing.

elapsed, and the Quaker, all anxiety, started
to meet him. Having methim,be said
"Well, friend, haw hast thou got on V
"Very well," replied the'yoong man,
"Hast thou bworn so much wiihj that

Homestt the Best PoLrcr I know the
old hoary, moss-grown, orthodox adage
goes lhat "Honesty is the best.policy," but
it is prejty clear.to my mind that most men
are infidels upon this tenet ; for"raosrnea
have a sharp eyeto policy, but few'men
embark on the ship of honesty to reach that
Ellysiao harbor. No thought have I of de
nying that the man of unanswering.integrU
ty will come out best in the long" ran, even
as respeals temporal inleret ; but this doc
trine belongs to the creed of faith, and not
of eight Truth, jealous of her ownceles
tial beauty, often hides her earthly recom.
penses, in order that the soul may be en
amored of herself alone, or if not alone, then
in supreme adherence. Never mind that
she is conducting every one of ber disciple
to thrones and principalities they shall
not always see the issue of the adventuron
pilgrimage, but betimesj shall behold her
clad as if in beggary, ay, scorned and spit
upon and scourged, as if she were a culprit
condemned and given over to victors.
