life of a Gentilo? No. If there is any
truth in the reports we receive from Utah

Quo word there. Here thoso outlaws
these alien onemies are to have their char
t"r taken away beoauso they do not con
form to what we believe to be rioht. Wo
choose to call them onemies 1 1 say they
are outlaws; ami wo choose to bbj thoy do

ou tho back and to be told well done
thou good and faithful servant; wo have
uo power to stop you and you may run al
pleasure liut that is not all ; for in the
same speech the Senator says :
" Hence tho necessity of repealing the
organic not withdrawing the pledge of ad
mission and placing it under tbe solo and
exclusive jurisdiction of the L'nited State-:"
For what purpose '!
" in o'der that persons and pa riiitrv
may be protected and justice tidminia red
mid crimes punitlud under tht laws pre-
scribed by Congress in such casts.11
Thus spoke Mr. Douglas at Springfield ;
aod now tee how iliilore it'y he speaks.
In ihe case ot Utah he wanted persons
and property protected. To uo that he
wanted Congress to intervene and protect
property. Be wanted something affirma-
tively done lie wanted justice to be ad-
ministered ; and ho waiitid the organic act
wip'-d out of existence so that Congress
might intervene. AW in the mi Bt pal
pable case iu which slave property may be
destroyed in Kansas or Nebraska he . ly-
we have no right to interfere. Sir I can-
not eco tho consistency of a position like
this If the Supremo Court was right in
d.'dariug slaves to be property and if we
stand by the deoision of that Court not
merely ooquioioo but su lain aod support
it then slaves are property ; and il 111 t'
ease of I tab the causes were .u!;i ii 1.1 to
justify Congress to intervene ami repeal
the organ lo act and undertake the admin-
istration of tiff.iiis there why not do so in
other rases tor the protection ot n'n -property

three outrages on women eight suicides
forty-two burglaries one hundred and twenty-one

five hundred coses of assault aud battery-:
Really we are as gay and virtuous as a Ro-
man carnival with Ctusar Borgio and his
sister Lucretia fir its prosidins deities !
And we are in full bla.-t of sanguinary fun
and all the j mnd sports of pandemonium
gay as its fires und happy as its demons ;
for since the sitting of the last flrand Ju-
ly there are already eleven cases of murder
known and to be trie and how many un-
known murders and th.-ir kindred crimes
done in the daiiy de-livery of brutal rowdy-

Big foot Waco was about to establish a
raoehe on the south fork of the (juada-
loupe proves to be fictitious. His solicitor
in chaii -cry now roaming in the mountain
fastnesses declares that It. F. Waco Esq.

South Fork for the present season ; that
being a retired position well adapted for
the reception ot mulct and horses from
Handera and adjoining counties.

On Saturday last William Brown was
sentenced by his Honor P. W. Gray to
solitary confinement in the State I'ri.-on
for life for the murder of Robt. Mclntyro.
The occasion was a solemn and iuipressivo
one. The large court room was densely
thronged and while the learned Judge
was Bumming up the evidence upon which
thowretohod prisoner had been convicted
and pronouncing the dread sentence of tho
law which confined a mere youth in the
first Hush of manhood to a felon's cell for
the remainder of his days the stillness nnd
subdued breathing of the audience gave
evidence of their deep interes. in the scene.
The prisoner meanwhile seemed as calm
and unruffled as a summer's lake his coun-
tenance betrayed no emotion and to all
ai pearanoos he was an indifferent spectator.
