PLEDGES OF THE REPUBLICAN
RESOLVED, That neither the Congress of the Uni
ted States, nor the people of the government of the
non-slate-holding Slates hare the Constitutional
right to legislate upon, or interfere ictth Slavery
in any of the slave-holding Slates in the Union. —
Resolution of Hon. JOHN SHERMAN, passed February
"7 have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to in
terfere with the Institution of Slatery id the States
where it exists. I beliefe 1 hare no lawful right to
do so. * * * * There is much contro
versy about the delivering wp of fugitives from ser
vice or labor. The clause I now read is as plainly
written in the Constitution as any other of its pro
visions. "No person held to service or labor in
one state under the laws thereof escaping into an
other, shall, in consequence of any law or regula
tion therein, be discharged from such service or la
ter, but shall be delivered up an claim of the party
to whom such service or labor may be due,'' It is
scarcely questionable that this'provision was intend
ed by those who made it for the reclaiming of what
we call fugitive slates; and the intention of the
,aw giver is the law. All members of Congress
swear their support to the whole Constitution, to
this provision as much as any other. To the prop
osition, tied, that slaves irhose cases come within
the terms of this cl tusc, shall be delivered up. their
oaths are unanimous —President LINCOLN'S" inau

Congress, July 4th, 1961.
" RESOLVED, That this war is not waged on their
part in any spirit of oppression, nor for any pur
poses of conquest or subjngation, nor for the pur
pose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights
or established institrtions of those Stales, but to de
fend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitu

equality, and the rights of the several states unim

complished the war ought to cease."— Resolution of
Hon. JOHN J. CRITTENDEN, passed, July 22nd, 1562.
We publish to-day the rules and regula
tions for drafting, which have been issued
from the War Department, a? matters which
will be of the utmost importance 16 our read
ers at this thee. InrthiS hutfrof the Nation's
extremity, the Government has seen fit to
adopt this, it's last remedy, to save the crum
bling fabric. While we think that a conscrip
tion could have been avoided, that all the
men needed could be raise! by voluntary en
listments ; we are willing to take our chance
in any fair draft that can be made. True it may
be inconvenient, and in many cases, an utter
impossibility for men to leave their business,
without ruiu to themselves and families. But
it should be remembered, that it Is the Na
tion that eall;, and not the President alone.
Every mah, therefore, ou Whom the draft falls
should be prepared to go or furnish a substi
The enrollment should bo an impartial one.
No favoritism should be allowed. The ap
pearance, even of partiality, should be studi
ously avoided, by those entrusted with the
duty of enrolling, that those to whose lot it
may fall to go, may feel that they have had
aa eqdal chance With their neighbors ; and
go willingly and eheetffnlfy the ranks.

The election for Delegates to represent the
different Townships ia the County, at a Con
vention to be held on Monday next, takes
place on Saturday of this week. \7e eDjoin
upon our friends the importance of strict at
tion to this matter. Let the democrats of
each Township send two men, in whose judg

party they have confidence. When they
shall have met tad dicided upott the proper
persons, as candidates for the several offices,
let every man lay aside his private preferen
ces, or supposed slights, and give an entire

With a majority against us at the last elbciion
of about four hundred, nothing but unanim
ity will sfecure the election of our ticket at
this. True there were causes for defeat, at

I'lSt The following eitrac? frofn a letter

answer. Thotisands upon thousands of their
mangled bodies lie buried in heaps upon the
battle fields. Our politicians, office holders,
and office seekers, have had a quarrel ; Our

the sword again sheathed they will, in all

or reduced to a condition not less wretched
than that of the slaves whom they have so
long and so impiously maltreated."
The vindictive hostility—the intensely bit
ter feeling of hate—which actuates too many
of the abolition faction, is one of the evil signs
of the times, whieh thoughtful men will coun
ter act by every mean 6 in their power. Should
by any means this malign spirit gain such an
ascendency as to control the eondoct of the
war it would be impossible to hope longer for
a Cordial re-union of the States. Abolition
fire eaters must both be kept in subjection.
GREELEY' AND THE PRESIDENT AT
In a long editorial letter addressed to Pres
ident Lincoln, a day or two since, Horace
Greeley reads the President a lecture, in the
name of " twenty millions of people," whom
he pretends to represent, end '' demands "
that the President shaft execute the laws, re
ferring more particularly to the confiscation
law. That he shall " publicly and dicisively"
instruct his subordinates to that effect. He
says the President has been strangely and
disastrously remiss" in the discharge of his
official and imperative duty ih regard to the
emancipating provisions of that act ; that he
is too much influenced by the Border States,
and complains that Fremont and Hunter's
orders were rescinded while ttalleck's is not,
a though every traitor in America received
with approbation the latter." Throughout
the Whole two columns there is the same ar
rogant assumption of the right to dictate the
Presidential policy, and accusations of disre
gard of duty, till one wonders whether Gree
ley is not the President, and Mr. Lincoln on
i ly his hired subordinate, receiving a severe
j lefiture for not better performing his duty
, I he impudence of the epistle, in assuming to
( speak in this Style for twenty millions of peo
ple, is sublime.
The President has, to the astonishment of
almost every one, condescended to notice this
miserable abolition brawler. The following
is his reply :

My paramount object is to save the Union

If I could save the Union without freeing

by freeing all the svafes, I would do it; and I
if I could save it by freeing some I would
also do that.

THE MASSACRE BY INDIANS IN
Five Hundred Whites Brutally Murdered
ST. PAUJ - ., Minn., A tig. 22.—Parties from j
the Minnesota river reached here last night 1
They state that the sjotfnfs estimate the
number of Whites already killed by the Sioux
at five hundred. This opinion is based upon
the number of bodies discovered strewed
ahmg the road and By the trails of blood. It
is bebieved that all the missionaries have
been killed. The civilized Indians exceeded
their savage brethren in at rocities.
Mr. Frenter, an inttepreter who has spent
mo6t of his life among the fndifcns, volunteer
ed to go alone among them, trusting to his
knowledge of tliern and his disguise, to escape
detection. lie dressed himself in Indian cos
tame and started on his journey. He arrived
at the upper agency at night. The place was
literall/the habitation of death. He visited i
all the houses and found their former occu- \
pants all lying dead, some on the steps, and
some inside their habitations, others were
scattered in the yards and in the roads, lie
went to the house of the Hon. J. It. Brown,
and recognized every member of the family.
They numbered eighteen in all, and every one
of them had been btutally murdered. At
Beaver creek he found that fifty families had
been killed outright. At every hoiise he
fecognized the dead bodies of nearly all the
former inhabitants of the place.
Among the dead bodies he recognized at
the agency were the following: N. Githeus
and family, Dr. Wakefield aud family, John
Eddens and family, John Moyner, Edward
Moyner, Rav. Dr. Williams, Rev. Mr. Briggs
and two missionaries.
Ex-Gov. Sibley is now mafching to the re
lief of Fort Ridgr!y. He repoits that (he
Sioux hands are united together to Carry out
a concentrated and desperate 6cheine, and
says that he will be only too happy to find
that the powerful bands of the Yanktons and
other tribes have not united with them.
Mr. Frcnier writes to Gov. Ramsey oh the
21st inst., saving that he left Fort Rridgely
at two o'clock on that morning. There were
then over 2000 Indians at the fort, and all
the wooden buildings there had been set on
fire, and were burning. Mr. 1-Yenier thinks
that other tribes arc joining the Sioux, and
that they will present a very formidable ar
A reliable letter dated Glencoe, 21st inst., 1
says that the injury done by the stampede of
the settlers is immense, and that such anuth
er scene of woe could hardly be found in the
South as in McLeod, Meeker and the north
ern part of Sibley aud other counties in Min
nesota. In St. Pauls and the adjoing country
all the available horses arc being gathered to
gether, and all sorts of weapons will be used
by willing hands for immediate and summary
vengeance upon these blocd-thiisty Indians.
CHICAGO, Aug. 23.—The St. Paul, Minn.,
Pioneer, of the 20th inst., says it is thought
that the Indians have been induced to com
mit these outrages by Indians from Missouri
and Secession traitors of that State, and that
when Maj. Gaibraith left the agency on Fri
day evening, everything was quiet. The In
dians had received their goods, and had all
disappeared, apparently satisfied with the
Major's promise to send for them as soon as
the money arrived to pay them their annui
ties. The first attack of the Indians was
made on the house of Mr. Baker, on Sunday
last, near the town of Acton, and thirty miles
from Forest City, in which three white men
and one woman were killed. On Monday
morning an attack was male on Redwood, and
at the timi the messenger left there a num
ber of persons had been killed. After the
messenger had crossed the river he saw the
Indians firing into the traders' stores and
other buildings. lie estimated the number
of Indians engaged in this firing at one hun
dred and fifty. He aiso stated that messen
gers had arrived at Fort Ridgley with money
to pay off the Indians the sums due them.
The St Paul Press of the 21st inst says
that several loadsjaf panic stricken people
from Currcr and Sibley counties arrived in
town last night, principally women and chil
dren. They were greatly incited, and give
exaggerated accounts of the Indians who
were marching on Shaska county. They also
say that the towns of St. Petc-r, Henderson
and Clencoc have been burned. A private
letter received in this city to day, from St.
Paul, dated the 20th inst., says that it seems
to Le the general opinion among the informed
of our citizens that these Indian troubles
orignated with the cursed Secessionists ol
Major Gaibraith wrts told by one of the In
dians that there are now in arms ten thou
saud of the Sioux tribes, besides other tribes
from Northern Missouri.
St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 23d—9 P. P.—An
toine Premier, the distinguished Indian scoirt,
got through Ihe Indian lines into Fort Ridgley
and brought Lack the following to Gov. Ram
Fort Ridgley, Aug. 21-- 2 o'clock P. M.-We
can hold this position but fittls longer unless
! we are reinforced. We are being attacked
almost every hour, and unless assistance is
rendered us we can not hold out much longer ;
our little band is becoming exhausted and
decimated. We had hoped to be reinforced
to-day, hut as yet can hear of no coming."
T. O. Sherman, of Company C, Fifth Min
nesota Volunteers, commands the post.
Governor Sibley cannot reach there with
his 1200 troops un til to morrow, when a day
of reckoning for the Indians will be at hand.
