A Sanguinary Battle.
The accounts from Italy, brought by the
Anglo Saxon, must be sufficiently horrible to
suit the most tragically inclined disposition.
Such wholesale and continuous slaughter finds
few parallels in modern times. The descrip
tions of the various engagements are notices
gorily confused. But this much appears to be
clear. The Austrians fought with determined
bravery, and were mercilessly sacrificed by their
commanding officers. The French contended
with a desperation worthy of the "Army If
Italy" that stormed over the Peninsula under
Bonaparte. That they were imperfectly led at
the commencement of the conflicts, is shown
by the supersedure of one of the generals.—
Louis Napoleon refers, with honest pride, to
the heroism of the Imperial Guards. They
nobly maintained the reputation won by their
prototypes on many an ensauguined field
throughout Continental Europe.
As might be expected, the Austrians are un•
willing to aknowledge themselves beaten in
this series of battles. And some of the
English press are endeavoring to write up a
French reverse. Even if the latter reports cor
roborate this view little comfort will accrue to
the friends of Austria therefrom. The march
of the French eagles is onward, and not only
Milan but the whole line of Austrian fortresses
in Italy will yet be given up by those now hold.
ing them, unless British diplomacy stops the
war. The battle of Marengo in 1800, which
terminated as is generally supposed, quite de
cisively, for the French, had an untoward look
for the final victors at the beginning of the
fight. The victory of Wagram, in 1809, was
preceded by the defeat of Aspern. French.

The Massachusetts Amendment.
The Locofoco party of this State intends mak•
lug a bold push this fall, to throw the blame upon
and make the Republican party responsible for
the odious Amendment to the Constitution of
Massachusetts, recently adopted in that State
requiring a two years' residence before a nat
uralized citizen shall be elligible to vote within
its borders. They are silly enough to believe
that intelligent German adopted citizens will
refuse to vote the Republican ticket on account
of the meagre vote on either side of that ques
tints in another State, when, notwithstanding
the paucity in numbers of the Democrats in
Massachusetts, there we more than enough to
have defeated the measure which is so bitterly
denounced. _ _
But whilst some of these papers are alreacy
crying out lustily to the foreign population, we
are glad to see other Locofoco sheets, honest
enough to "put the saddle on the right horse."
The Boston Pilot, well known as one of the
most strenuous and influential Locofoco crgans
in the Eastern States, pioves conclusively, from
facts and figures, that the Democrats of Mas
sachusetts, combined with a number of half
shelled Know Nothings, are alone accounta
ble. It says:
"The Republicans were by no means unani
mous in their support of the amendment. In
the county of Worcester —the strongest Repub
lican county in the State—a county which usu
ally gives a majority of five thousand for the
Republican ticket—the vote was nearly even.
Several Republican papers opposed it, and it
was quite clear the Democrats could have de
feated the amendment without straining them
selves much, if they had desired to do so."
Our factious neighbor up town, has become
wonderfully blind, that he cannot see the victo•
ry achieved by the Republicans last fall, in this
State. Who, we ask you, friend Globe, were
Messrs. Read and Frazer? Who were Blair,
and the other Congressmen elected over Bitch
anan nominees 1 Were they not the support
ers of Fremont? Republicans in every thought?
What signifies whether we use the name " Re
publican " or "People's Party,"—they are syn•
'A rose by any other name, will smell assweet.'
We hold that the Republican Party is the
party for the people—consequently the " Pee.
ple's Party." We predicate this assertion up
on the fact that almost three-fourths of the pee.
ple of the North belong to the Republican Par
ty, under the avowed name Republican,, and if
our neighbor will but examine the official vote
of this State for Fremont and Fillmore, he
will have his eyes opened to the fact that at
least gwo-iltirds of that vote, of the Opposition,
were given for Fremont. If this is not evi.
deuce enoug't to convince any rational man
that it is the People's party, we confess we do
not know what more positive proof to offer.
But our neighbor merely indulges in this flight
of fancy to escape the question "Whar is the
Democratic party?" Yes, echo answers whar!
Outside of niggerdom it rhea not number a
corporal's guard, and even the hoariest grey
backs are leaving it, as rats desert a sinking
ship. Neighbor, we did not wish to wound
your feelings when we spoke of your defunct
political parent, by Baying you were "an organ
without a party." We dieelaim any intention
of the kind. We honor you for daring, in the
face of fat iota And P. 0. blank., to crab out
of Lecomptouism—when you couldn't help if.
The Coming County Convention.
The time will soon arrive for the holding of
a County Convention, to place in nomination
candidates to fill the offices of Sheriff, County
Treasurer, etc., etc., and perhaps a word or two
from us may be expected in reference to the
same. It the selection of candidates by that
Convention, we do not anticipate that there will
be a resort to any of those small wire•pulling
schemes which often have disgraced such as
sembled bodies, in all parts of our country,
from the simple reason that a salutary lesson
has been taught by the past, of the disastrous
consequences of corrupt and unwholesome no
minatious. Such lessons are fraught with war
nings of momentous interest to us, as a party,
and should teach the bad policy of permitting
evil disposed political time•servers to control the
actions of delegates, and override the will of
the people. Again, no candidate should be pre
sented for the support of the people, who is ca
pable of proving recreant to the confidence im
posed in him by his selection. Men have been
elected to office in Huntingdon County, on the
ticket apposed to Locufocoism, who, by their
subsequent actions, have proven themselves to
be as deeply imbued with. the spirit of Locofo
coism, as the arrantest lacquey in the Buchan
an camp. We have supported men for office
and labored faithfully for their success, who.
no sooner had reached the pinnacle of their
ambition and the 'good sinecure," than they
1 1 contemptuously have kicked over the ladder by
which they mounted, nod threw their patronage
and favors into the lap of Locofoco partizans
and the very men who labored most zealously
to secure their defeat. Can any man or body
of men, who at heart are opposed to sham De
! moctacy consider the individual a true, loyal
and orthodox Oppositionist, who throws the
weight of his influence, and what is infinitely
of greater importance, the patronage of his of-
Lfice, to the support of a Lecompton organ in
preference to a paper which supports the doe
' trine which he professed whilst a candidate for
office? We could lay our finger on such; but time
and space will permit us to dwell no longer up-
on this point than merely to add, should such a
traitor ever receive n nomination, we wash our
hands of the foul imposition,—deeming an
open enemy preferable to a treacherous friend.
All that the people want, and all we ask of
the approaching Convention is the nomination
of good men. By this, we mean men whose
antecedents are right; whose actions are not
treacherous ; who do not
"Keepi the word of promise to the car,
And break it to the heart."
In short, we want men of principle. We trust
that the Convention will be harmonious in its
deliberations, and that its action will be marked
by that high-toned, elevated scone of honor
which ehould characterize the proceedings of
such bodies. The nominees whom it may see
proper to place upon the platform, shall receive
from us a hearty and cordial support, provided
they receive their nominations fah ly and hon
estly, and are men of honesty of purpose and
sincerity of motives, untainted with halfway
principles, and pledge themselves not to " aid
and abet" Locofocoism, by throwing the pat•
ronage of their offices to the support of Locci
foco organa. This, we think, fs a very mosso&
able demand ; and surely no true Republican
will quhrrel with us for its avowal, of refuse to
sanction and endorse the principle which backs
it, and from which it springs.

BOTTS versus CASS.
A few weeks ago, a number of regularly
naturalized citizens of the United States, ad.
dressed a letter to the Government at Washing
ton, inquiring whether they would he protected
in their rights as American citizens, in case
they should revisit Europe, and if *they would
be exempt from military service, which their
native countries require from all their popula•
lion, by transferring their allegiance to the
The Secretary of State,Mr. Cass, replied to
this inquiry as follows:
"Department of State, Washington, May 17.
1859.—Your letter of the 13th instant has been
received. In reply I have to state that it is
understood that the French Government claims
military service from all natives of France who
may be found within its jurisdiction. Your
naturalization in this country will not exempt
you front that claim, should you voluntarily
repa:'r thither. LENTS CA ss."
This outrageous doctrine of "perpetual elle
giance" has excited, naturally, a great commo
tion among our foreign population. By this
declaration it will be seen that our present
Democratic Administration disclaims any pow
er or intention of protecting the adopted citi
zen in the rights he has lawfully acquired, and
is entitled to under the laws of the United
States. This is a direct abandonment Af the
professions of the party, and it is ten ',lmes
worito than the Most radical know-nothing
The Irish, German ;old other naturalized
citizens of this country, should know of the
treachery practiced towards them by the
very party which has been placed in power by
their votes, yet has not courage to defend the
rights of its own supporters. Under the decis
ion of the Secretary, any Irishman or German
is liable to be forced into military service, with•
out hope of relief, whenever he may see fit to
visit his native country.
But the oracle of State has written yet an
' other letter on this subject, called out by the
universal indignation which met his first, by
the American nation. In it he remarks that
the condition of American naturalized citizens
returning to their native country where tho
system of compulsory service prevails, has
frequently been a subject of discussion; and
that, as it has quite recently arisen between the
United States and Prussia, special instructions
have been sent to our Minister at that Court.
In these it was explicitly stated that native
boss Prussians naturalized in the United States
and returning to'the country of their birth, are
liable to such duties or penalties, and only
such, as were existing at the time of their em
igration. If at that time they were in the ar
my, or actually called into it, such emigration
and naturalization do not exempt them from
the legal penalty which they incurred by
their deserting; but if they are proceeded
against further than this, the act would be eon
sidered unjust in itself, and unfriendly towards
the United States. This question cannot arise
in the once of a naturalized citizen who re•
mains in the United States. It is only when
he voluntarily returns to his native country
that its local laws can be enforced against

rallied citizens, as to the soundness of Mr .
Ca.' doctrine :
" My views on this question may be thui
summed up: when one plants himself under
the protection of the American Eagle, which
he is pledged and sworn to support and defend;
when he enrolls his name upon the ample folds
of the stars and stripes of this great American
Union; he is free to go wherever, the winds
and waves may carry him ; the eye of that ea•
glo watches over his every step; that flag waves
proudly over his head, whether he is upon laud
or upon water, in a palace or a dungeon ; and
the Power that dares to interfere with hie per.
sonal liberty, whilst he is engaged in lawful
enterprise, and not offending against the crier
final or penal code of that Power, dishonors
that eagle, and disgraces that flag to which he
appeals for his deliverance, if it does not afford
bin: prompt relief and redress.
"1 have thus, gentlemen, without confining
myself to the particular form in which your
questions are put, grouped them ali into one,
and have shown that I am utterly and irrecou•
cilably opposed to the doctrine laid down by
the Administration as the rule by which it is to
be governed towards our adopted citizens • a
doctrine that, until I read the letter of the citizens;
rotary, I did not suppose there would be found
one man in this entire nation to assert."

We know of no invention of modern times
that deserves or is destined to occupy a high
er niche in the temple of fame, than the disco,
ery or invention of the Vegetable Epiletic
Pills fcr curing Epilepsy, or Falling Fits;
Spasms, Cramps, and all the various modifica
tions of Nervous Disease. Dr. Seth S. Hance,
of IN Baltimore street, Baltimore, Md., the
inventor, is certainly entitled to the best wish
es of all the benevolent portiou of mankind,
who experience a pleasure by the alleviation
of human suffering. 'When Dr. Hance first
prepared these Pills, he intended them solely
for Fite, Cramps, nod but sabrequent
experience satisfactorily proved to him, that
is addition to their remarkable sanative prop.
erties this class of diseases, they exerted a per ,
feet control over the entire nervous system.
He was then induced to try them in runes 4,1
Neuralgia, Tic-Doloreaux, Nervous Headache,
Palpitation of the Heart, Incipient Paralysis,
Hysteria, Muscular Debility, and it host of in i•
nor diseases, springing from a lark of nervous
energy, in all of which his anticipations were
crowned with the most sanguinary success.--
Persons at a distance, by writing and sending
a remittance to Dr. Hance, can have the med.
ieine forwarded by mail to their post office
dress, he paying the postage. The prices see
for a single box, $ll, two boxes, $5, or $2 , 1 per
