CiaccifsrAXCES Alter Cases. Some years
a' a Kentuckian kidnapped a free negro in
ludiana, took hint to Kentucky and sold him.
lie ri indicted in Indiana, aud a requisition
issned upon the Governor of Kentucky lor him ;
I ut the latter refused to give him up, on the
ground that it was no crime nnder Kentucky
lint. Indiana submitted, without howling a
Uut the want of comity between the two
.States ; and the South looked on approvingly,
ai it was not their ox that was gored. Last
car, however, a man escaped info Ohio wbo
i'd been indicted ia Kentucky for stealirt?
Glares; and when requisition was made np-
n uov. uennison to give him up as a fugitive
from justice, be refused, taking the Kentucky
erne as a precedent, on the ground that slavc-
steaung was no oflence under the laws of Ohio.
Instantly a bowl a terrrfic ho I over the want
ui gooa laitn in unio. me two cases were
parallel, and Kentucky had established the
precedent ; but what of that 1 Circumstances
alter cases. It was thtir ox that was gored,
now; and we notice that the case was intro
duced into the Senate, the other, dar, as a
Southern grievance. .Nothing was said, then,
"out Uicothtr case. Ibe South never tells
about bur own faults. It is all right for Ken
tccky to refuse to ive up a man thief to In
diana ; but it is all wrong for Ohio to refuse to
ire up a slave thief to Kentucky,

. Uctragk ix Tessessee. A correspondent
of the N. r. Tribune, writinr from Memphis.
Tennessee, under date of Dec. 5th, relates the
following circumstance :--'No lonsrer a?o than
Monday of this week, a Northern man, at
Pryor's Point, about 100 miles below here,
was questioned upon the snbiect of Slavery.
and on his answering unfavorable towards the
t'sacred system,' he was seized and lynched
with a rope. On tho next mornine tbo cotton-
gin and 100 bales of cotton, belonging to the
ringleader of this band of Southern chivalry,
was sound to be in ashes. It was enough.
The cowardly blood-hounds again seized the
poor man who had been lynched so unmerci
fully by tbem; put him into a pork barrel, with
some stones, headed him ud tlehtlv and roll
ed him into the Mississippi River. Southern
gentlemen, a negro trader, and a cotton plan
ter, told ne that the murdered man bad not
interfered with any person in regard to Slavery,
llow much longer will the Free N'orth eat dirt
and submit to such barbarities 7 No North
ern man Is safe in the South now. It matters
not bow servile a Democrat mav have been, or
may now be ; if be is from tho "accursed
North" it is sufficient. Northern men are be
ing driven away from New-Orleans. Cincin
nati steamboats are refused a landing at the
wharf there. And here in Memphis, Northern
men in business bow to this Moloch of Slavery,
prostrate themselves in the dust, and discbarge
meir Northern clerks and workmen. They
are daily leaving. Some have been turned off
and have not the means to get home again up
me river. It is truly deplorable.
. In the recent speech of Senator Iverson
he thus vented his wrath on Sam Houston,' of
lexas, for refusing to call the Legislature of
at State together : 'Before the 4th of March
five States will have declared their indepen
dence, and he was satisfied that three other
States would follow as soon as the action of
the people can be bad. Arkansas wilt call
her Convention, and Louisiana would follow,
And though there is a clog fn the way in the
lone star of Texas, in the way of the Govern
or, who will not conseDt to call the Legislature,
yet the public sentiment is so strong that even
her Governor may be over-ridden ; and if bo
will not yield to that public sentiment, some
Texan Brutus may arise to rid his country of
this old hoary-headed traitor.5
