the lack of Northern cities, tho slaughter
of Northern ormies, blood, thunder, and a
general smash up of thiugn earthly, oil as
very likely, contingent njion tho incuutioos
treading of nn awkward Jonathan njiorj
the corns of some descendant of one of tlio
" First Fumilics of Virginia" in the pro
ducts of B miter Hill, enjoying his "in
uliciiublo rights" to life, liberty, olid the
pursuit of nigger. They liavo threatened
that if tho Government refuted tln.-ir m.id
schemes of rebellion, " t!ic very first drop
of blood died1' would bo a signal for mus
tering the chivalry, when wo might export
to fco tho North ' subdued,' if they hud to
rock the firmament, pull down the titan,
und tear their shirts off, to do it.
As examples of tlio prowess of negro
whipping chivalry, they struck down nn
iiiiariiii'd United Stulcs Senator with n
bludgeon o:i the floor of the fviinlo cham
ber, and beat him till life was nearly ex
tinct, for saying that freedom was prefera
ble lo slavery; they surrounded tho house
iu which ltrown of Kauris hud taken ref
uge, nineteen of them, all armtd, and of
ter enticing him out by pledging their Ann
or that bo aluiuM have a fair trial, fell
upon him with hatchets mid knives and
cut him to pieces then rolled and kicked
his mnnglcd body soino twenty rods to a
wagon, pitched it in, and hauling him to
the door of his own house, threw him bleed
ing and dying into tho middle of tho floor
occupied by his wife and children. They
murdered tlio sou of old Ossawolainie
I'rotvii by loading him with chains and
marching him burc-hcadcd and hare-foot
for twenty miles over a dusty rond, under
n scorching rain. They took six unarmed
men prisoners iu the southern part of Kan
sas, mid ufter marching them eloso to the
Missouri hue, halted and thot Hum down
iu their trucks. They surrounded tho pulpit
of l.inhop Janes in Texu, with bowie
knives and pistols in their belts, nnd drove
him out of the State hceuu.-u ho was a
Northern Methodist. They pursued the
Kev. Mr. l.owly, a until e TVnncMiccaii,
with blood hounds into Mii-sntiri, strapped
him on n horse, nnd carried him back
into the forests of Aikansas, where thev
hung him to n tree for expressing tho con
viction that slavery was not n divine insti
tution. They stripped the Ilcv. Mr. Sut
ler nuked, covered him with tar and feath
ers, nnd then sent him down tho Missouri
river on a raft, for saying ho intended to
vote or u freo constitution for Kansas.
They tied no old Mr. Potncroy, a demo
cratic preacher In Texas, and whipped him
on the bare back till tlio blood rati down
into his shoes, for preaching that masters
ought lo treat their servants l.ko human
beings Instead of cattle. They hung n
Kenliickian by the heels till h0 was dead,
in Arkansas!, for expressing nn uttaehnieiit
for the Stars and Stripes. They have shot
down, hung up, nnd cut to pieces with the
i.i.sh and knife, besides burning ut the sluke,
enough poor defensch n slaves, and such
northern democrats with amalgamation an
tecedents as poor Curry and SI iter, to
inaho a bloody pool deep enough to flout
n frigate. These acta have been matters
of newspaper notoriety for tho last twenty
years, keeping up in certain quurters an
exalted idea of the bravery of the cliivulrv,
while tho lanibl.ku patience of Northern
men in submitting to be nited by them,
added totho oft-repeated statements of
such vagabond sheets as the Portland Ad

history of the Government aim 1854 down
to lhochiso of lliichannn'a reign, has been
a dark and despairing one; and, wero it
not for a few waymaik along the road, we
ahould have agreed with the fire-eaters,
that cmirago had entirely forsaken tho
North. That Northern mm, when ciifl.d,

Sinco Iho rebeU liavo inaugurated the

opportunities to redeem their character for

them? Tho shooting of Klhworlh In the

been ouick enouijh to dodge tho bayonet
of tho Northman who pinned him to the
earth. The Government troops hare now
hail about n dor.cn different tkirmishes iu
Virginia, besides being fired upon by ping
ugly assassins under rover in J.dlimore.
In every hand to hand conflict our troops
seem to bo much more thnn a match for
the rebels. Indeed, the chlvulry. so far, in
stead of coming any where near up to thoir
own cstunnto or their figlilmg qualities,
seem to us lo fight littlo better than Iho

Tho border rulliins alio invaded Kansas
from Missouri, and instituted mob law in
place of statute law, enforcing their brutal
behests with bowie-knives and bludgeons,
inscribed on their bnunirs "Law awl Or

Tho violation of every law, human und
