without being stripped of the pride
and ornament of the Indian war-
Not a man of the Indians had es-
caped. Five of Big Foot's brothers,
the flower of the Wyandbt nation,
had accompanied him in the expedi-
tion, and all perished. It is said
that the news threw the whole tribe
into mourning. Their remarkable
size, their courage and superior in-
telligence, gave them immense influ-
ence, which, greatly to their credit,.
was generally exerted en*he side of
humanity. Their powerful interpo-
sition saved many prisoners from
the stake, and gave a milder char-
acter to the warfare of the'Indians
in that part of the country. Adam
Poe recovered of his wounds, and
lived many years after this memo-
rable conflict; but never forgot the
tremendous hug which he sustained
in the arms of Big Foot.
"It was mercy that preserved the
noblest of God's creatures here be-
low ; he who stood condemned and
undone' under all the attributes of
God, was only saved andrescued by
his mercy ; that it may that God's mercy is above ll his
works, and above all ours, greater
than the creation, and greater than
our sins. As is his majesty, so is
his mercy, that is, without measures
and without rules, sitting in heaven
and filling all the world, calling for
a duty that he may give a blessing;
making a man that he may save
him; punishing him that he may
preserve him. And God's justice
bowed down to his mercy, and all
his power passed into merby, and
his omniscience converted into care
and watchfulness, into Providenee
and'tobservatiorn for 'lat's avail;
and heaven gave its influence for
man, and rained showers for our
food and drink; and the attributes
and acts of God sat at the foot of
mercy, and all that mercy descended
upon the head of man. For so the
light of the world in the morning of
creation was spread like a curtain,
and dwelt nowhere, but filled the
e.rpansum with a dissemination
great as the unfolding of the air's
looser garment, or the wider fringes
of the fire, without knots, or order,
or combination'; but God. gathered
the beams in his hand, and united
them in a globe of fire, and all the
light of the world became the body
of the sun, and he lent some to his
weaker sister that walks in the
night, and guides a traveler, and
teaches him to distinguish a house
from a river, or a rock from a plain
field. So is the mercy of God a vast
expansum and a huge ocean, from
eternal ages it dwelt around about
the throne uf God, and it filled all
the infinite distance and space that
hath no measures but the will of
God; until God, desiring to commu-
nicate that excellency and make it
relative, created angels, that he
might have persons caFable of huge
gifts ; and man, who he knew would
need forgiveness. Though angels
were the objects of God's bounty,
yet man only is, in proper speaking,
the object of his mercy which dwelt
n an infinite circle, becameconfined
to a little ring, and dwelt here be-
low, and here shall dwell below till
t hath carried all God's portion up
to heaven, where it shall reign and
glory on our crowned heads forever
and ever Let us take heed; for
mercy is like a rainbow, which God
set in the clouds to remember man-
kind; it shines here as long as it is
not hindered; but we must never
look for it after it is night, and it
shines not in the other world. If we
efuse mercy here, we shall have

mitting the slavery question, the only
one in controversy, to the people
5 The constitution formed by:the
c;oonvention so assembled.
6. The action of the people on the
questions it submitted to. vote on the
21st of December.
These are all the essential facts em-
Sbraced in' the call. Perfect legality
S'tnd regularity mark every step of the
Proceedings. Why should not the
State be admitted? asks the report.
The report then takes up and an-
swers the objections which do not arise
on the face obf the record. No consti-
:tution,.oan be valid which is not first
ratified by 'a popular vote. This posi-
tion of Gov. Walker is shown to be un-
tenable, both on principleand author
ty. Non.eof the constitutions of the
old States were thus ratified, and many
Sof the new have not been.- The second
objection-the want of an enabling act
:-is shown to be untenably by numer-
ous :precedents, the case of Californi.a
in particular. Anotherobjection is as
"to 'the fairness of the registry and ap-
portionment. This is fully answered.
There are thirty-eight counties in Kan-
sas. twenty one of which were, Tepre-
sented. Thirteen of the others have
little or no population In these thir-
teen, on thb 4th :ot' January election,
there was less than one hundred 'votes
east against, the constitution. The four
others had no registry, because the of-
Aers were not permitted to make it.--
They were driven away by force and
t threats.
"The report; ignores the voles of the
4th of Januaiy, although arguing that
a fair" interpretation of that vote, upon
,; the basis of apportionment made by
Secretary Stanton, would show that
the constitution had not' been defeated
even then.' "
:. The report is very elaborate, and
covers all the points, and closes with an
urgent argument for the admission of
Kansas as recommended by the Presi-
dent." This-Is isrged as best for Kan-

sas-.as well as- the peaoo.tnd-harmony

well recommended, and will, we trust,
receive sufficient patronage to render
his situation permanent and pleasant
.in his newly-adopted home. 'The
American i resbyterian, published at
Greenville, Tenn., in noticing the de-
parture of Mr. Rowell from his former
home, says:
"And in parting with C. C. Rowell
we wish him, wherever his home may
be found, the same good luck in m'a-
kifingfriends, and giving the same satis-
faction to his customers elsewhere, that
he has done here."
"W'oe' would also call attention to the
card of Dr. JAs.'. B:. BEAN, Dentist,
located at the same place. Dr. Bean
is also from Tennessee, and well recom-
mended. We doubt not he6'will faith-
fully perform all that he promises.

lows: Some .ime'(in'the year .1852,
her husband, Mr. .Allen Sturdivait,
gave a note which was traded to A. J.
Priest, and in 4 few days went with the
money to Mr Priest's store, to redeem
it. After he had paid the money, Mr
PfinsVtiaid that' the note was at his
house,,'bi~t he would bring' it'to his
etoTe nox.t day, Mr. Sturdivant called
for ihe note. several times, but faildd
t&get it. After the death of Mr.
Priest, the note was presented to Mr.
Sturdivant for settlement, at which
time the circqmstanoes attending its
pay.mnent were explained. Nothing-fur-
ther was heard of the note until after
the decease of Mr, Sturdivant. The
lady now writing to uu has been sued,
as'administratrix of the estate, for the
amotp.t of said note, and judgement
rendered' against her. She has made'
an appeal. "

There is one thingwhich Icannotquite
comprehend, in, your editorials. You
are a zealous advocate for a Railroad
to Ocala. Gov, Prrry insists that the
Road shall be built, at least a portion
of the distance, by those who have un
dertakcn to do so, (viz: the Fernandina
and Cedar Keys Company.) and you:
seem to take position against th9 Gov-
ernor. I must say- this is incompre-
hensible to me. Just as was to be ex-
pected, you seemed to think that Mr.
Yuleeaand his kit would enable-you to
,have.your Road without cost, that all
you had to do was to consent to the
building of it. When the tug of war
comes, you are told pretty plainly that
tbe'Fernandina Company would' like
f6ra you to build a Road as a:feeder to
'theirs; but if you want the Road, ot
'IIust 'build it, and 'yObu mst paiy for it

to explain bis position, therefore you
must'not think it unreasonable if I ask
you' .toW explain ybur opposition to the

you ate a ting antagonistic. to your
sclf-interest; and this I cout4 admire,

bile Tribune, in an article in reference
to the project of opening a direct com-

port in the old world, says:
There is one thought which gives
ground for encouragement in this
connection It is that the tendency of
fi'reigii trade has long been slowly and
gradually creeping southward. Time
was when Boston was almost the only
port of any importance in North Amer-
ica. Newport, at the era of the Revo.
lution, was far in advance of New
York. The prosperity of Baltimore is
of still later date. Norfolk. after half
a century of growth, has, within a few
years. started from its slumbers, and
now bids fair to be no backward com-
petitorin the race. With her magni-
ficent harbor, her genial climate, and
her means of opening a communication
with the great valley of the Ohio, by
easier and cheaper routes than any
