Pi ill 0> THE MQKHIKG PRESS The Trff{bn replies to the Intelligencer's article of yesterday, and invites the attention of that journal to the Fpetch ef Mr. Fillmore made at Albuaj in Jure, 1S5G, where, allud ing to the possible election of a sectional can" did ate. he scouts the idea that ** oor Southern brethren would submit to be governed by such * Chief Magistrate" aa " madncm" and il folly V The Union thinks? ?? There are rapsaze." in Mr Fi lmore .? re marks which the editors of the Intelligencer might study with profit, especially that noble declaration in which he says : u I might, by soft words hold out delusive hopes nnd there by win votes; but I can never cogent to be one thing to the North and another to the South" and that other equally noble re mark : " Law and common sense hold a man responsible fcr the natural con^equcnccs of his acts ; and must lfot those whose acta tend to the destruction of the government be held equally responsible?" Impelled by such sen timents. Mr. Fillmore gave the highest evi d<nce of his patriotism by fearlessly warning his countrymen of their danger These warn ir gs the Intelligencer Condemns in unmeasured terms when repeated by democrat, but has no fault to find with them when coming from Mr. Fillmore. That journal thinks it would be better for the democrats to fellow the rule *? fufficient unto the day is the evil thereof,"' and not to have declared in advance what ought to be done in the event of Fremont a election. Unfortunately, however, the Intel ligencer make* as bad uso of Scripture as many others who quote it with facility, but tail to follow its teachings Upon this rule why could not the editors wait until the con tingency should happen, and then come for ward with their ponderous counsels ? If they can violate the scriptura' rule by declaring in advance that they ari// submit, we fee no reason why others may not with equal propri etytavow their determination nut to submit The only difference is. that the Intelligencer, by making proclamation to the sectionalist? that they wi'l have its influence to sustain them, give-* them encouragement to git <n; whi!?t those who warn th^m of the danger mnj ciu e them to psu?e in their mad career. ' The IntrUigenctr is devoted to wows. Bay field, Wisconsin.? This enterprising town, on Lsko Superior, we notice, is attract ing the attention of capitalists. It is situated cn tho southern shore of the Lake, in Lapointe county, about eighty niles catt of the town of Superior. Ihechannel is two tuiles wide, with an average depth of sixty feet, and is so en closed by the group of islends kn?>wn as the Apostle's LsIaLds, thai it is protected from any and all directions. On the 20th ult , a severe storm prevailed on the Lake, and the steamers Manhattan tr.d Superior sought this harbor for protection. They started out once or twice, but had to return until the stoim abated. The latter steamer tried tc lie at several other docks, hut b und the water t *> low f<?r the swell?, and returned to Bayfield Win. M. McAboy, civil engineer, says that " the chan nels of entrance into the bay are wide and deep, nakicg it one of the safest and most commodious natural harbors in the world " Its geographical position for eommercial ad vantages, as wwl be seen by referenco to a map of the eurn ucding country, is equalled by few, and excelled by cone of the most fa vored locations in the Northwest Owens, in his geologic*! surveys speak? of the harbor in the same tavorable manner. Corgrcs?, at the last cession gave a grant of land for the con struction of a railroad from the bt Croix Falls to this place, thus p'a-ii.g it indirect communication with St. Paul Minnesota, on one side, and liilwaukie and Chicago on the other. " PERSONAL .... The Boston Times says: "Mr George W Morgan, the celebrated organist, on bis last visit to this city, while walking in the garden belorging to a friend, was bitten by a spider. The poison of the insect was so se vere that it diffused itself all over his ."ystem, and he was confined to his room several days. He ia noW improving " ....John A King, the Republican candi date for governor of New York, boasted in his speech at Syracuse of the purity of bis blood The New York Picayune thinks this may be accounted for upon the ( resumption that King has, within the last lew years, demolished several packages of Brandeth's pills. It is suggested that Brandeth should claim the merit of the fact in bis next advertisement .... Mr J U. M Mrdoch will probaldy play an eagageineut at the ilayniarket Theatre, London Tho Ktrakosch "l roupe, comprising M lie Parodi, Tiberini, Bernardi, and Paul Julien, the wonderful violinist, will give three erand concerts in Bcwton this week Mr <i?o Payne i- giving an entertainment in England? *?

Tings, bracelets, Ac. .... " I was amused," says the biographer of Montgomery, " with the poet's statement to the effect that the bouie in which Moore was born is now a whisky-shop , that Burns's na tive cottage is a public house ; Shelly s house, at Great Marlow, a beer-shop ; the spot where Scott was born occupied by a building used for a similar purpose; and even Coleridge's residence at Nether St^wey, the very bouse in which the poet composed the sweet 4 Ode to the NVhtingale,' is now ua ordinary beer homse. * . ....The N O Delta rays- " Wa noticed about a week since, the arrival in the city of Prof. Mowre, of Iowa, on his way to South | America, to make a scientific exploration of the Andean regions ? !'

Peace in Kansas ?The gratifying fact (to all law-abiding citiiene* istesordad of the restoration of peace?confirmatory of previous similar accounts of that Territory. Governor Cleary, it appears, is no temjffrixer I Jle stands straight up to bis duty, not Jftaning to either of the late contending factions. The inhabi tants, generally, becoming acquainted with bis character for impartiality, respect him, in upholding the lairs. The quieting influ ence of his presence, wherever he goos, is felt; and his success in dispersing the unlaw ful armed hands, is a matter of.sincere con gratulation The Fremont newspapers, how ever, are extremely grieved that the intestine war is over; and this is natural, considering ihat the olood of the slain H? Kansas served the purpose of political capital. The waitings of such papers as the New York Tribune, are unmistakable evidences that they wished for the continuancc of civil strife, and even mur der, for base and selfish purposes. Governor deary, it appears from a letter in the Baltimore Sun, had visited tbe famous town of Topeka, and the inhabitants thereof, we are informed, were remarkably fastidi ous and precise, disposed to be quite intracta ble ; aud one man, In a bold manner, gave the Governor to understand that he might sup pose himself to be the legal Governor, but he (the speaker) considered Mr. Kobinson as the real Governor, and that he conscientiously felt that he owed fealty to no other Many others wished to interrogate the Governor, and others desired to commit him to their own line of policy. To all these persona he had bat one reply : " Gentlemen, I come not to traat tnth, but to govern you. There is now in this Territory no other Governor than John W. Geary I will protect the lives and property of every pcace-loving and law-abidiug citicen with all the power committed to me I will punish every law breaker. I will not for a moment tolerate any questioning of my authorily r. very person in favor of restoring peace to this distracted Territory can range themselves uu,ier my banner; all others I will treat as landits and robbers, and I will extirpate all ?uvh at tho point of the bayonet. Don't talk to me about tlavory or freedom?freo State men or pro slavery men?until we have res tored the benijtn influences of peace to this beautiful country?until we have punched the murderer and driven out the bandit aud rabble, and returned tl.e industrious citizans to their homes aud claims. Don t, I pray you, embarrass me with these political mix tions. liu shall all. without distinction of party, be protected This is not a time to talk about party, when men, women and children are daily murdered and driven from their i.omes. In God s name, rise for a moment above party and contemplate yourselves as men and patriots I am your friend, your fellow cituen, moved by noother impulse than the good of the bona fide inhabitants of this Territory, and the protection of their lives and property. When peace shall b? restored, I will see that every man of you is protected in his political rights." The response was instant and enthusiastic A vote was immediately passed to sustain the Governor, and when be left the town of Topeka the people assembled en masse and gave six enthusiastic cheers for Governor Geary. This whs another great moral triumph, was delight ful to contemplate, and is a bright leather in the Governor scap. What a change a week's energetic impar tial administration of affairs has produced here Instead of the reign of terror, with every man thirsting for the blood of his enemy, Confidence is being restored, squatters are re lurniug to their claims, and hope is aV'aiu dawning upon this country. ? ' One Cat Let Out cf the Bag!-Our truth ful, ingenuous, etc. neighbor, in bis issue cf Monday, publishes the latest edition of the obligation* and lecture of the third or I'nion decree of " The Order of the Star Spangled Banner;"' Le having been absolved from the affirmation (for it is to be presumed he never swears) to keep them secret. Having relieved himself of this load which bad so long been pressing upon his conscience, he proudly ahd defiantly exclaims, " If this bo treason, make tbe moet of it." Ihe object of the obligation was, we arc In formed, to " uphold, maintain, and defend" the Union, as if the Union had not been up held, maintained, and defended long before the seed of Know Nothir-gism was sown and germinated! All we have to say at present, on this point, is, that if the members of that or ganization cannot bo patriots without taking the prescribed oath, the lore of liberty has but a weak hold upon their hearts. But all Know Nothings have not taken the third degree. They, then, aro not genuine Union-savers, unless they can claim redemp tion on the ground of having passed through the initiatory cercmmy; the particulars of which our neighbor cautiously conceals, for tbe reason that ?? the chief oouncil of this bis trict' ha? n'?t yet given this ardent patriot the privilege to reveal them ! 44 The first degreo (before the third was con ferred, ns we learn from Ihe 'charge' as given in tho paper of our neighbor) pointed out the source and nature of our most imminent peril, and indicated the first measure of safety. The second degree defined the next means by which, in coming time, such assaults may be rendered harmless." As " the chief council of this District ' au thorised the publication of the third, why does it not extend a similar official permission for the revelation efthe two preceding degrees' 44 the source and nature of our most imminent peril,'' and "the means by which such assaults niaybe rendered harmless," being very im portant matters to knew. " Open confession is good for the soul," auU hence we suggest U our neighbor that he at once proceed to avs.il himself of the benefit wbich such a course would confer. Exclusion 5 The editor of the National Intelligencer, a few days ago, expressed his belief in the truth of the assertion of a North Carolina contemporary, to the effect that not CD9 of the delegates to the late National Whig Convention was known to bo connected with the "American" (or Know Nothing) party. And, therefore, the idea put forth was, that these Whig?, though endorsing Millard J il mure for the Presidency, still preserve the distinsti ve features of their own organisation ! ?h !Ty Wtil' take fur granted.

Mr. Spinner, a Republican camliJato for Congress in New York, says in a lettor : "I am in favor of abolishing the negro race." He doas not explain the process by which ho would accomplish this object, hut he would probably do it by tho Banks' plan of absorp tion The Pittsburg (l*a ) Post says : "The Fre mont party is losing ground fast in all the southeastern portion of Pennsylvania. It is the third party there. In Centre county, and from thenco to Philadelphia, the contest is be tween Buchanan and Fillmore. Such is the opinion of candid mon who have an opportu nity te know." The Boston Chroniclo finds fault with the Boston Pott and Washington Union for print ing Mr. Fremont's name with the Frencn ac cent over the letter. Why does not the Chron icle find fault with Mr Fremont himself, for tho P< st and Union print it just as he writes it himself? He prefers tho "foreign accent," Know Nothing that ho is. In a political discussion between G. W. Pratt, Democrat, anl a Mr ILinsel, Republi can, in Bureau township, Illinois, a few days since, Mr 11 became so greatly excited that he struck Mr. Pratt on the head with a black smith's hammer, thus closing the argument in favor of Fremont and free speech Mr./ Pratt was seriously injured by the blow, as may be supposed Some wieked wag. having sent a communi cation to the New York Express, announcing that the inmates of a house in Green street wero unanimous for Fillmore, that sheet pub- , 11shod it with a c^ptinn, "The ladies all right " The residents ifl the vicinity of the described mansion were somewhat startled at this pub j lie commendation of the rectitude of the ladies, 1 who occupied a notorious den of ill fame ! Hon Howell Cobb addressed a large meet ing of the Democracy at West Chester, Pa , on Friday evening last. During his remarks, questions were put to him by saveral Repub licans present, which were replied to with great courtesy and telling effect Attheoloee of his addrees. members of all parties erowded around bim-4o take him by the hand. Gov. Cobb's influence is great wherever he goes. The New York Journal of Commeroe says: "We have not allowed ourselves to expect that the twenty-three electoral votes of Ohio will be given for Buchanaa, but it is by no means certain that they will not be. Th? Democrats are thoroughly roused, all over the State; and their numbers surpass all pre vious expectation.
