Louis JUmMiem and Bi. Louis Herald pronounce it a mastarly expositiol of Federal Constitution, and ozauat panegyric in iu praise. The Rejmbtiam bas evidently token a long jump from the pUtfbrm of iu former idol Abe sage of Ashland ia order to find a footing on tbe slipper plank of Squatter Sovereignty. Tbe Washingtoa OtHutihOiOH of tbe ITth nit, with a wary caution that smacks strongly moral cowardice or mental Imbecility dodge the issue, bat manage to squesv-e out a protest after this wise I The appearance of this production is, to say the least, tmteatonabU." Tbe timidity of the Government' official bugle-blower Is more then offset by the dashing assault of tbe Presidents State organ the Pennsylvania. peals oat Its defiance thus I It seems that th Illinois Senator ba published a lengthy article, false fa its auaVwy extsot nrtw4 ais asi'-iai'tans, ess tVisj bsritot isj question, in the intorieest of all Black Kspub-can Periodicals, Uarpor's Monthly Magaaine.

This periodical is rabidly anti-Democratic, eo much so that it is not to be pmeumeed that an Essay of a truly Democratte character would permitted to find a phuie ia it Judge Douglas baa, tnmrcsrr, caoem a ju or. ffixn for the promulgation of kit heretical opinion. There is not in th whole land a more busy, fussy, intriguing, anxious sneksr after the Presidential office than Judge Douglas. His game is a disgusting one, and th country is becoming tired of the pertinacious and shameless solicitations of himself and the class of mercenary men who ibllw hi fortune like a Swiss guard for pay, present and prospective. canooot be but that the people will torn their backs iudignantly, and, and wilh a ns loathing on the entire park." The Louisville Cowntr ay Squatter sovereignty will bereaftor usurp the place of love-sick stories aud sectional poetry." If, however, if squatter eryvereignty is all that th South bas gained by th Nebraska Kansas act, then we bav been greatly deceived, and our people arw been most than.

fully treated. Is it possible that for the establishment of this tilly dogma the statesmen of tbe South have labored month after month and year after year If we concede squatter sovereignty in a Territory, we have enacted, beyond all cavil or dispute, a most cffbltdal Abolition mca- pre." nil political opponents conld desire nothing more than for him to continue his communications to the people. Few politician have succeeded as letter writers, while many, with their own hands, have written their own epitaphs. Judge Douglas seem to be fated to belong to this class for no weapon ot His en emies could Dave so weaKeuea Dim in in South and destroyed bis political prospects as the letter which appears iu Harper tor September. We cannot imagine what motive prompted Judge Douglas io hi course.

Certainlf bis letter will do him (treat barm in tbe ooutn, and cannot strengthen him with th Democ-lacy of the North. We are constrained to believe from the evidence we daily see multiplying, that he is looking for other than Democratic support, and is preparing, ia tbe event ot a laiiure io secure tne nomination o. ana Charleston Convention, to run a an independent candidate.

Cbicaoo, Sept. 2. The machinists of Lanorte and Adrian, on the Michigan Southern 1 tail road, struck yesterday, and refuse to allow anything but the mail car and engine to run. The passengers that left this city yesterday morning returned last evening. The cause of the strike is the inability or refusal of the road to pay back wages.

No trains have left here since yester day morning on this road. New I or-, Sept. 2. The steamship Quaker City from Havana on the 2'Jtlt arrived at this port at noon to-day. A royal decree imposing great restriction on the commerce of the island gave much trouble to American shippers aud captains.

It considerably impeded the working of telegraph lines, and its effects were continued up to noon to day.

Houston, who committed the assault on him, was in jail awaiting his examination. Six Camanche Indians attacked two soldiers on the road, and took from them their tobacco and knives, and then allowed them to pass. Excitement runs high here in regard to the proposition of the Pacific Railroad Company, for this county to subscribe 200,000 in lieu of its present subscription.

The election on the question takes place to-morrow, and it is thought that the proposition will be defeated. Pittsbl-ro, Sept, 2.

The sauire'a wife did not die then, but she never was strong enough to leave her bed af terwards. My mother had been able, I heard, to think of some simple remedy which the doctors despised; but be that as it may, she derived more benefit from it than she had done from their prescriptions, and she never forgot the obligation. While it was being tried, my mother put the young baby into my arms, while the nurse was busy preparing its food, bhe knew that I might be trusted, tor had nursed both my little twin-brothers in turn when they were not older than this waxen darling.

The child stopped the little fee moan it had just begun to make, and, opening its blue eyes widely, looked up at me. hen the muscles ot its tiny mouth, which had been drawn up fretfully, relaxed, and the tnlaut smiled, lor the lirst time in its lite, in my face. from that time, l.went often to the great house. The child had taken a fancy to me, aud was never quiet or happy except when it was ia my anus, lis health was delicate, aud my mother always said, that, in consequence of the great disappointment occa sioned by its proving to be a girl, the servants followed the example of their master, aud neglected it, I do not know whether this were the case, and whether, as she said, the child had had a fall, or whether it inherited its mothers infirmity of constitution, but it was long, long time before it could use its limbs. used to draw it about in the tiny carriage, iu which it lay at lull length, ihe child was so small that its weight made scarcely auy difference.

Alter a time, the little lady wa3 able to sit up, aud play with the flowers gathered tor her. There was nothing iu the world I would not have dune for her amusement. 1 am afraid I did not lore my own sturdy little brothers half as well but, then, they had a tender pa rent to care tor them, and, before the time when my darling first learned to put her deli cate feet to the ground, she was motherless. hatever might have been the case previ ously, after he lost his first wife, the squire's heart opened to his little daughter, tie would come and sit for hours in the garden where we were at play, and help to draw her about when I was tired. The costliest toys were provided for her, and, certainly, there was no lack ot care now taken in bringing her up but she was never strong or like other girls of her age.

The least change in the weather atlected her; and when she was five years old, the phvsieians said that she would never bear to spend another winter in England. Jit was a sore struggle with my mother on the morning when the squire stopped his horse at our gate to ask her to give up her little daughter to him. Though he was a man of few words, he had a way with him which few could gainsay.

He scarcely over spoke to me, but there was music in his few courteous words, and an imperious influence exercised bv the mere turn of his head.

I knew ex- actlv what pleased him, and 1 taught Julia the secret of conciliating her fastidious parent, be- fore I understood how I had learned it myself. Now, as 1 stood trembling beside my mother. the tears that sprang to my eyes were not from regret or timidity.

She was very ill at hrst and if, in addition to sickness and debility, she had been obliged to contend with the deep feelings of regret which it would have cost her to part with her playmate, she would have broken down under the trial. My mother, in her own motherly way, had fore- een this. "Foor little heart, she said, "she will never bear to part with Lucy. Let the children bide together." My father had taken a different view ot the case, but it vas one iavoraoie jo my wisues.

Troubles were coming fast upon him, and he was glad to see my prospects so securely settled. was a great surprise to him when the squire, after receiving his consent, graciously otlered him the post of bailiff during his absence, it was a proot ol confidence lor which he was deeply grateful, and he felt that he owed it in a great measure to me. He was very sorry to part with his own girl, when the time of separation arrived but it was too late to draw back so, with many tears, 1 separated from my kind friends and a few hours afterwards we were tossing on the waves ol the Channel, sorry enough, now that the time was come, to leave the people and the place we loved behind us. I am speaking tor Julia and myself, as we lay crying in our cots. 1 do not think that her father cared much at that time lor leaving England.

His life had not been a happy one aud now, with his little daughter's fate in his charge, he seemed to be beginning the world anew. A sense Ol responsibility awuae within him. He watched the child narrowly. 1 1 whs difficult for any one who attended upon her to serve her with sufficient assiduity, and he parted successively with all the attendants he had brougnt out witn nun. neiore we uau hp.n a winter in Italy, our household was en tirely remooeiieo.

As his deep melancholy passed before my mind, I thought how much nearer to my soul he was daily becoming, and found in a strict analysis of my heart that it was not the love ot a daugnter a father, but instead the deeper, holier feelings of love that causes a woman to forget parents, friends and all else save the object upon which it is centred. I knew I could pot his daughter. A few days after, in coming into his library, I found him weeping, and rising suddenly he demanded the cause of my ntrusion. muttered a reply, and started to leave the room. Stay.

Lucy." he said, when he saw that I was about to leave him Lucia," he added, smiling. How much better I like the Italian pronunciation ot our cold Jtnglish words and names. Do you not think that you might almost pass for a native of the sunny peninsula, after all the years you spent there Possibly," I answered with somp surprise; Italy seems more like a home to me than Lngiaud. itut 1 suppose, 1 said hesitating, unwilling to lose the opportunity he had affor ded that I oughts that I must think of returning to my parents." His dark eyes flashed lire. 1 hat was not my meaning Lucia.

When we left home, your father and mother gave you to me. Your own wishes ratified the bond. Have I ever given you cause to wish it No," said I trembling, almost weeping. 1 have been only too happy. I am afraid I am very unfit to live at home.

But I must try to accustom myself to the position of an English farmer's daughter." That is absolutely and entirely out of the question," he said; "besides, I cannot part with you. Have you forgotten that angel's last words I was dreadfully agitated. Julia with her dying breath had conjured me never to leave her lather. I scarcely remembered what I had said. I did not know that he had heard what passed between us.

I could not answer him. Lucia," he said, coming near to me, "you promised my dying child that you would never forsake me. At that moment, I scarcely thought what it was you were saying. 1 ought have prevented your making a vow which circumstances have rendered so solemn bnt candidly confess that all my thoughts were wrapped up iu my darling.

I do uot love hei less neither us can do that but I love you more than all the world beside. Do you really wish to leave me Closer and closer he drew me towards him as he spoke. I laid my head on his shoulder, and wept as if my heart would break. It was the first caress he had given me. Even as a child his manner to me had been always kind, but cold and as a woman, he had always treated me with marked respect.

Now I felt the wild throb of his heart beating against my own, the trembling of the hands that yet held me so firmly. At last he released me. Listen to me, Lucia," he. said I have a plan to propose. You are too old to live with me as you have hitherto done like a daughter but we cannot part vou know what my position was in England.

You must give up all for me, Lucia father, moth er, and all associates of your former life. Y'ou must relenouish the whole world for me.

When I saw which way the inclination which had so Ion, guided my own pointed, I did not interpose any obstacle to fulfilment of my husband's wishes but now that I was a mother, I began to tremble lest my own misconduct in deceiving and forsaking my parents should be visited upon me through my children. I can scarcely realize what the return to my birthplace would cost me until, after more than twenty years of absence, I saw the oaks of Fairholme crowning the hill down -which lay the road to the old Hall. The western heavens were flushed with crimson, aud the reflection of the sunset glowed on the long range of upper windows.

Two of these belonged to the room which had been Julia's nursery. I almost fancied that I saw her little childish face at the window looking out for me, as she had done a hundred times when I was on my way from the farm to the great house to play with her. My hand was firmly clasped in my husband's. There was no one with us in the carriage. Our two children were with tieir ayabs in the old fashioned family coach which had been sent to meet us at the town uear our home.

Our arrival had been only announced that morning-, nevertheless, the whole village was astir to receive us. My husband returned the cordial welcomiug of his humble neighbors with courtesy. His manners were certainly much softened. As for me, I shrank back, ashamed of being seen unconvinced, as a time for many years, upon me, now impossible I was that even my owu parcuia auuuiu rccujf- 1 nize me.

In your card, however, yon state that you are respoasible for all articles which appear in the columns of the Fne Drmocrat during Mr. Grant's ab-sence. Do I understand you as applying the word "false" to anything that bas appeared in1 the editorial columns of the Wat, or the words "snake," and "coward," to the editors therwof? An early answer will much oblige Yours, Ac, EDW. Y.

SHIELDS. 8t. Aug. 22d, 12 o'clock, E. Shield, Esq Your of this morning is before me.

In reply I would say that you can understand me as applying the word "false" to things which have appeared in the Wert. As to the words "snake," and "cow ard," they mean just as they read, and if prop erly read, will be understood. I do not wish to be held responsible for any articles published in the Demrcrat ex-. ccpt those in qaestion. Yours, JOS.

THOMPSON. St. Josr-m, Aug. 23, '69. Mr.

Y'ou will obligo me by appointing a time (after the lapse of eight days) and place beyon. the limits of the State where this correspondence may be continued.

I need not, I hope, hint that the utmost secrecy will bo necessary. My friend, Mr. Baxter, through whom you will in future communicate, will band you this. Yours, Ac, EDW. Y.

SHIELDS. P. S. I will leave the city early in the morning, and an answer is reqested sometime during the day. K.

Joteph Thompson, Sir-l demaud i retraction of your language, 'false," nnd "coward," as applied to myself, and for which you hold yourself responsible as staled in your note of Aug. 2'2d, 12 clock, M. The reason of referring this matter to your self directly is from motives of propriety and delicacy which will be readily understood. Yours, Ac, EDW. Y- SHIELDS.

"Great Western Hotel," Elwood, K. Sept. 1st, '69. Mr. E.

T. ShitJdt, Sir 1 received your note of this morning per Mr. Baxter, and in reply will say that the words alluded to, I did not intend to apply personally, and if you so understood it, you mistook my nieauing. have no objection to retraction in that sense. 1 In assuming the responsibility of the editorials in question, I took them as they were intended to tie understood, not as they might be.

The word "snake" was used as a simile. The word "coward" was not intended to be person al, but to denote unfairness. The word "false" was intended to imply that the statements in the Wail were incorrect, hence not necessarily implicating the veracity of the editor. Believing you to have misunderstood the terms as intended to be used, nope mis explanation will be satisfactory. Respectfully, JOS.

THOMPSON. "Great Westers Hotel," Elwood, K. Sept. 1st, '69. Mr.

Joneph Thompton, Sir Ia reply to your answer to my note, jast handed me by my friend Mr. Baxter, received by him tbroug- Jtr. Russell, I have to state that yor retraction and explanation is satisfactory. Yours, Ac, EWD. Y.

SHIELDS. The "Bloodv Italy. Some weeks ago we alluded to the comparatively small losses sustained oy tne rnncn, namn-ian and Austrian armies tn the late "unprecedented battles," with "arms of in Italy. We then showed, from the besl data before us, that the proportion of killed and wounded, or what the French call hart de combat, was considerably less than one-half thau which was sustained by the American armies in their encounters with what the Europeans are accustomed to call the cowardly arid undisciplined Mexican." In our articles referred to we gave the aggregate losses of tbe Allies and Austrian at Solferino at seven per cent The French lournals just received give an "au thentic" statement of the "casualties" sns- Laiiied bn both belligerents in Italy, Accord ing to this statement the following table shows the numbers engaged ana toe losses sustain T.oial 1S.0IK) ton.

I wonder whether it would be possble for me to write down the curious experiences of my youth.

1 am not old now, though more tuan thirty years have passed since I lirstauw the light shining on the upper windows of the house ot which 1 am now the mistress. I he sun as it sunk always lit them up, before, my father great barn hid the view ot the old Uall from us, Mo-a people thought Fairholnie a dull place, but 1 remember liking it very much when i was a child. The squire was a tall, dignined man, not very popular with his ten autrr. He came down only for a few months in the year during the remainder, the house was shut up. It was said that, when younger he had a pleasanter manner, and that it was the want of au heir to his property that toured his temper.

As long as 1 can remember any thing almost before I understood the mean ing ot the words heard ot quarrels and bitterness at the great bouse. 1 he squire a ladv was older than ber nus hand, and verv Dlain in person. I think she must have been slightly deformed, for she was I always so closely wrapped up, that it was diffi- I cult to trace the outline of her figure. To the best of my belief, she never set her foot to the ground at least, I never saw her walking. The carriage came round at a stated hour to a side-door of the old house, and her maids, it was said, lifted her into it.

She never visited or received company, and the state of her health was such that not a day passed without her seeing our villare doctor. About once week, a physician from London came down to her. Still, she grew neither better norworse; and there were persons ill-natured enough to declare that her ailments were all tancitul Every one was astonished when a report reached Fairholme from London, where the squire and his lady were spending the season, that she was expecting her confinement. It was true, nevertheless and the family returned to the country earlier than usual that year, that she misrht be kept timet. 1 he heir, too.

Bonfires were oiled tiiion the hills when the time drew near. ihe church-bells were to be set ringing, and a feast was to be given in the park to all the tenantry, tar and near. I was iust eight years old then, and we liv ed in the farmhouse by the church, at the up- perend ot the village, ily parents were plain.

hard-working people, and it was through the squire's favor that they were enabled to rent the land they held. He had lowered the terms because he had a liking for my father, who had worked as a laborer on the farm which he now occupied. My mother had been dairy maid at the Hall in the old master's lifetime, and had saved a little money but still they were poor people, and squared accounts with difficulty at theyear'send, after all their labor. We were expecting to hear the bells ring, and to see the great piles of wood on the hilltops lighted, when wrd came down fiom the great house that there were to be no rejoicings, no bell-ringing, nor, in short, any notice whatever to be taken of the birth of the squire's first child. For, after all, it was only a daughter 1 1 could not understand mat mis maueiuucu difference in the matter, and I longed to see hnt mv mother cried when she n.
