We learn from one of the party, that B. B. Taylor delivered a speech in "Platte City, on Monday, which was regarded by the Union soldiers as secesh." Conservative. Wc give place to the above item, in order to call attention to the last paragraph, which relates to us personally. It is a specimen of the dastardly and conteinpti-able manner in which we have been assailed, by nearly the whole Republican press of this State, ever since we commenced the Inquirer.

Vague insinuations and general imputations, trumped up by malice and promulgated by mendacity, are the staple with wdiich it is sought to impeach our integrity as 'aft American citizen and malign our character as a man. Because we have taken a bold and fearless stand against all sorts of and robbery; because we have denounced thieves, jay-hawking and scoundrels, tho Conservative, which is the unblushing advocate of all these, takes upon itself to impeach our loyalty. According to its standard of loyalt-, it Is necessary for a man to be a thief, the open advocate of thieves, or at least the patron of stealing, in order to be loyal. At first it declared its readiness to "meet argument with argument but as it finds that a task somewhat beyond its ability, it resorts to the means more congenial to its capacity, hence its use of the epithets of the blackguard, hence its resort to scurrillity, personal detraction and abuse. or thi-ee days! and it ill bV '0 fl.o05cs 1 lcitUit, was calculated to excite mn- rair tin7 anJ scUU5on hC troOP3.

Phou-daneMibhoodbeirouh- LI'6'1 Ohio, has introduced a bill, to take away from men who have thus been maltreated, the right to sue in the Courts, those who have so maltreated them. They are to bo denied the privilige of vindicating their calumniated names, again! their despotic accusers, in the courts of Justice. Tyranny is to be indemnified "gainst all penalty, while the liberty of the citizen is to be sacrificed to its caprices.

EEcaiili Tho New York Herald's Washington cor 1 we're ione 10 canes led Tlio Weekly Inquirer. CT?" Nothing, of lntf, has more startled ns, than the announcement, by telegraph, that tin of Congress, from the border slave Statff, ntnl perhaps other conservative members from tin; North-Western States, arc preparing to vacate their seat, ns 11 last means of stepping the unconstitutional nnd legislation of Congress. Their withdrawal would leave Congress without a quorum, nnd tin; wheels of government would thus be- stopped. This step is threatened, especially, against the impending confiscation hill. Such a is revolutionary, but if nothing less than revolution ut home can save th! remnant of our liberties, those men, it seem, nrc resolved to attempt it, if wc may credit the telegraph.

The expostulations of such a man as Crittenden, whose patriotic soul has harbored no thought, throughout this contest, that Was not fraught with devotion to the Constitution and the Unoin, go unhedaed, or an; openly by such run-mud radicals as Lovejoy, Hickman, Sumner and others, who are bent on revolution by means of congressional action, regardless of constitutional or moral restraint. The conservative men, who are unfortunately 1 ri the minority, find themselves serving but one purpose and that is, to make tip the quorum which enables the revolutionists to press their mad schemes through Congress. Their counsels, their protestations, 'ir warnings, their admonitions are unheeded. The patriotic appeals and warning tones of patriotism are lost or drowned, amid the howling storm of a wild fanaticism, rai ed by such men, who care much less for the welfare of their country snd its teeming millions of white people, than tbev do for a handful of negroes, who, if tiny ere emancipated to-day, would prove a curse to themselves and an insupportable burden to every body who pays taxes or makes a living by labor. It is prop that we should advise our readers that the Cuiiliscation Dill is but an abolition rasure in disguise.

iv 1 1 We care nothing for the personal abuse of the Conservative; scurrility is to be expected from those who know not how to practice the nmnities of life but it is the ter.cof insolent exultation which pervades its loader in its yesterday morning's issue, to which we wish to call attention. One would think, from the tone that pervades that article, that the Conservative has General Blunt in its keeping, and is exultant over the consciousness of its ability to use that gentleman for its own purposes. Tho moral of the whole essay is as if the Conservative said just this "Gen. Blunt is in command of this Department now he and the Conservative understand each other what the one favors is favored by the other what the one frowns upon is frowned upon by the other so look out." And then the insolent braggart (we cpuote his language) "You have had your day, Mr. Inquirer, you and yours." i -Itiireur turn now." To all this wo intend.

to speak in terms perfectly candid, perfectly fearless, and very explicit. And in fulfillment of our purpose, we have to say, that the Conservative is either very presumptuous and very insolent, or Gen. Blunt is not the man for the place lie occupies. A little time will determine which of these two is the correct hypothesis. It is very certain that, if the Conservative's principles be carried into the administration of this Department, we shall soon have anarchy instead of order, persecution instead of security, a Saturnalia of thieves instead of law, order and peace.

We mean exactly what Ave say, when we declare, that no systematic government can exist, founded on the principles, or administered upon the policy which the Conservative has uniformly advocated. No government ever did exist, for any considerable time, this side of Pandemoneum, based or administered upon such principles or such a policy. The nearest approximation to it was Trance, during the domination of the Jacobins, and the is an American illustration of the Marats, the St. Justs, the Kobespierres of that Iteign of Tenor. Perhaps Gen.

Blunt is not aware that but a few months since, the Conservative the unblushing advocate of jay-hawking. It said, in explicit terms, that "jay-hawking is a Kansas institution it works well; we like it;" and other like expressions, which could only emanate from a heart fraught with the evil and demoniac passions of hell. Such is the paper which now assumes whether correctly or not, time will determine to be the exponent of Gen. Ulunt's principles and the organ of his administration in this Department. And not only so, but recently, this same paper, after Wendell Phillips had declared that he had spent nineteen years of his life in trying to break up the American Union, and thanked God that it was broken, spoke of him in terms of the highest praise, and said his efforts were "noble services." Such, we repeat, is the paper, hich, with an air of insolent swagger, becoming only a bully, announces to this community, that it is the organ of Gen.

liiunt, gives out its prophetic warnings, and presumes to read us lectures on loyalty. If there is a traitor sheet on earth, the Conservative is that sheet. Its columns are reeking with treason and its heart is replete with hypocrisy and disloy it la v.i- i 1 it l'i-r 1 Wicked Tlicy tTscd to fee. A friend, who will accept our thanks, has sent us a copy of an old newspaper, printed on the 4th day of Januas, 1800 more than sixty-twocars ago, which is a curiosity. It was published in Kingston, Ulster County, New York, by Samuel Freer and Son.

The inside of the paper is draped in deep mourning, for the reason that it contains the announcement of the death of General George Washington, which occured on the 14th of the previous December, 1790, at the age of 03 years. The paper is entitled "Ulster County Cache." But one of the chief curiosities in this Gazette, is an advertisement, which now serves the purpose to prove- how wicked our northern people used to be, before they became pious. It is terrible, heartrending, awful, sickcVfnjjj shameful, out-rugeous, villainous and humiliating to think, that any people who lived in a Christian country, under the benign influence of free institutions, wheer free speech, a free press nnd free soil," were their birth-right, should for a moment tolerate, endure, suffer, permit, allow, concede, authorize or grant, a paper to he published in their midst, which should dare or presume, insolently to contain, such an advertisement as the following, which we find in the said Gazette: For Sale The one half of a Saw Mill, With a convenient place for BUILDING, lying in the town of Rochester. By the Mill is an incxliaustable quantity of PINE WOOD. And also, A STOUT, HEALTHY, ACTIVE, Negro Wench.

Any person inclined to purchase, may know the particulars by applying to JOHN SCIIOOXMAKER, Jun. at Rochester. November 23, 1709. A stout, healthy, active negro wench," for sale! and in Rochester, in the State of New York! nnd under the administration of John Adams, of Massachusetts! -Think of it! John Schoonmaker, living in such a country, a dealer in human flesh and blood," a barterer in human souls!" And then this negro' wench," may have hada bus 0, horrible! and some little chil ghost of John Brown! and to be torn from ail these endearments by Schoonmaker And ail this dotie in a northern community! How wicked those old people must have been, and what an immense improvement in morals, since their descendants have become pious Since those wicked peoplo have sold off all their "wenches 'J and the others what d'ye call 'cm? those that are not wenches they have piously abolished the ''institution," and come to see that this thing of "dealing" in sable humanity is a ver- great sin and nov', there is not a pulp'it in all that community that docs not ring with denunciations of such awful wickedness. Piety bat so advanced that it is now at a considenble premium in Rochester, and the people there and elsewhere in the north, have made such progress ia morals, that they can steal negro servants from their neighbors, most virtuously and piously.

It is all done in the fear of God now, but it wasn't then. Glorius state of morals, and a wonderful advance in piety, when the law made known by that old fogy, Moses Thou slialt not covet thy neighbor's man servant, nor his maid servant" is abolished, and a higher law substituted in its stead. We are a people of progress and we have certainly made great progress when we can fight, about "a stout, healthy, active, proper charges wiil be prepared and for-ward'-d in dne time." At tin request and under the eye of Co'. Cnt't. unison, of mv regiment, wrote, and Lieut.

Kendall, of Jerinisc-n'fl regiment signed, the charges, a coppr of whieh is herewith enclosed, and took them to Hen. isturgis, at Fort Leavenworth. As the papers aud persons sympathyzing with Col. Jennisou rsser that no charges have boon preferred, I Cat they have been suppressed cr miscarried. I reijiic-ted Gen.

1 Mr. Wade introduced sm important hill in the Senate to day relating to arres-s like that of Ex-Secretary Cameron, by preventing them in future. The bill provides, in the first place, that ail stilts commenced in State Courts against oflh-ers or servants of the Government because of illegal arrests made for disloyalty, and imprisonment in forts, or of seizure of property under suspicion that it was intended for the rebels, shall be transferred to the Circuit Courts of the United States, the Government there to have the privilege of continuing the said cases from term to term until the present rebellion shall have ended. 'Tt further provides that any person who shall knowingly cause the arrest of any Government' officer on charge that th'-plaintiff was arrested and imprisone 1 hv him in a fort, shall be deemed guilty oY misdemeanor, and subject to a lin and imprisonment at the discretion of the Court. "The bili ia Itngihy ia providing for legal processes in such cases, but this is the irist of it." Accenting to ibis bill, if a man has been arrested during the past year, thrown into a prison and confined for months, iniiictini." a terrible injury upon his health ami reputation, he can have no redress even if the person who ordered tho arrest and the officer who made it had no authority or right

After suffering the rigors of a confessedly false imprisonment, he is to be again punished if he attempts to bring the man who did him this cruel injury to the bar of legal justice. This is the object of Wade's bill, this it aims to aceom-plish. This comes from the humanitarian who for years has pretended to weep over the wrongs of the poor African, and has denounced all manner of oppression, lie now introduces a bill to shield- and protect kidnappers from punisliniT.t, for of course no person who has been lejrally arrested can have any redress in tho courts. i is only those who have been illegally arrested and improperly punished that it is int i-ed to cut off from obtaining redress. This attempt to strangle judicial invest i-j-ition into iillt'cd cases of wrong- and otUrngc is the most unblushing and barefaced wickedness.

It will inliict a stain upon every man who votes for it in Congress a stain that time will never It will fail in its purposes, too. No man can be deprived, under our Constitution, of his legal rights, and among those legal rights is the privilege of bringing action against those who may have deprived him unlawfully, of his '-liberty or Cincinnati script, tl: is one serijo-ral Old Testament bv t-x party sen titer-. And my te: fro- -tnent 1 of any respectability, ever told the Conservative that we made a speech of the kind intimated, in Platte City, on Monday or any other day, bceause it is not true. We call the reader's attention to the vague and indefinite manner in which the base slander and impudent falsehood is put forth. It is designed to prejudice the minds of the Conservative's readers, while it avoids making any specific charge.

The Union soldiers regarded our speech as secesh." If any man, who heard the remarks wo made, puts such a construction upon them, it is because he is either a fool or a malicious calumniator. We no speech," in the common acceptation of that term. After Judge Birch had concluded his eloquent nnd able speech, in behalf of the Union cause, he voluntarily referred to the fact that we were in the room, and was kind enough to speak of us in complimentary terms. Thereupon the audience called for us, and we responded to the call more in th.e way of an apology for not speaking, than in the way of a speech. We said not one word, nor uttered a sentiment, that was inconsistent with that trus and heartfelt devotion which wc feel for the Constitution of our beloved country, and the Union which lives or dies with that Constitution.

It is because we are not an abolitionist, that wc arc charged, by such a traitorous sheet as tho Conservative, with disloyalty. He is a calumniator, a coward, a traitor and a liar, who applauds such a villainous traitor as 'Wendell Phillips, an avowed disunionist, and charges us with disloyalty. The Conservative tons these things, and wc make the issue direct with it, and are ready for the responsibility it involves. scripture is the: took ile in their ves -Niiw. mv btveth'T.

Jennison, did, on or about the thirteenth day of April, in a speech to the olhcers and men of the 7th gituent of Kansas Volunteers, make use of the fid lowing language, to wit That ho had no confidence in the present or words to that effect.

liecently, there occurred an interesting scene in tho lower House of Congress, between Thaddeus Stevens, the Republican chairman of tho Committee of ways and means, nnd Mr. Dawes a llepublican, of Massachusetts, one of the committee that has been investigating frauds ah!" 1 ri- whar was 1 see them was th ile. and as rverv alty. We presume it is Gen. Blunt's wish to administer the affairs of this Department with intelligence, impartiality, and with a view to the good order and walfarc of the people and the government.

We cannot suppose that he has any other purpose in view. This being so, we tell him plainly, that we have much mistaken human nature, if he can achieve these results, if the Conservative of yesterday morning speaks of him and bis purposes by authority. The people of Kansas, though they have suffered much at the hands of Jay-hawkers nnd lawless men, are not yet slaves. We would die before we would submit to such a despotism as the Conservative would inaugurate. The people of this community, who love law, order, prcpriety and decency, look upon the Conservative and the princi iar or i 1 was ti: thirty whar carry taj negro wench," instead of bartering about her.

The of disrespectful and contempt -I'" uous language towards his superior offi north, to ornament and refine northern so-cietv, ami to assist northern laborers in procuring more certain employment at more remunerative prices save the mark-In one word, the proposed Confiscation is but an abolition measure in disguise; a cowardly and sneaking way of doing by stealth and indirection, what the traitors dare riot openly propose. The measure is unconstitutional, radical, revolutionary. It proposes, while an army is in the field fighting ostensibly to enforce the execution of the Constitution and the law, to violate, by a miserable and cowardly act of chicanery and fraud, both the Constitution and the law.

Tt is a proposition to convert the war, from the grand purpose to vindicate the right, the majesty and dignity of the Government, into a degenerate crusade against slavery. It is io degrade our volunteers from the soldiers of Constitutional liberty, into a set if marauders, l'ass such a measure, nnd ihr-. whole object, end and purpose, for which the war was declared to be undertaken, will be changed, lost sight of and than such a villainous and wicked Hellenic should be successful, it is said to be the determination of the conservative loox ii in their vessels according to their New ters.

Stevens denounced the investigators in very severe terms, and Dawes defended them. Dawes states that they saw no ill feelling on the part of Stevens until they dragged to light a fraud of $30,000 which a nephew of Stcven3 was an instrument in committing against the government.

Let them belabor each other to their hearts' content neither can hit the other a lick amiss. The old proverb tells us, "when rogues fall out, honest men come to their own." There is some hope when the abolitionists get to quarreling with each other. Stevens has had a bad reputation, as a man wanting integrity-, for a good many years. He is of the Cameron school. at- ey The Chicago Election" at Wasihngtos.

A correspondent of the Chicago Times gives the following account of bow the Democratic victory of Chicago was received at Washington Early during the forenoon to-day I -t Gen. Richardson, of your State. He is not in very good health, but it was diseeniable at a glance that ho was evidently improving. He greeted few friends with the expression: "Wo have v. on a victory for the Union and the Constitution." "Arrother battle, "Yes sir, a battle for the Constitution and the Union which our fathers wid.i and sanctified; a battle well fought and gloriously won, Ami thereupon "Old Dick." drew out a dispatch informing him of the election of the et.tire Democratic ticket at the municipal election in Chicago.

And his eye lighted up, an his whole soul kindled, at the mention of Douglas and this great vindicatory tribute to his memory and to the principals that great party with which he was so intimately connected. Soon Yoorhccs, of Indiana, Sheiii of Oregon, Pendleton, Cox, Yallandigham, Morris and White of Ohio, and other democratic members of the House came up, and never was a victory discussed with more satisfaction than yours in Chicago. It is hailed as a sign of returning prosperity, because it is a rebuke to abolitionism, a rebuke to Wendell and an assertion by the people, in" trumpet tones, hat thev are for the "old Union and the Da iiti'el. I the old set Daub 1 Webster, fe for aud es is 'To us. The thou art all of 'ils tes-ds of my is in the balance." ie.

Tlic II-al We have heretofore said, and we repeat, that the real scscssiomsts nnd the worst, arc the abolitionists. They are the primary and moving cause of our present calamities and troubles. It is their conduct, their villainies, which furnished the South with a pretext for secession. With the Wendell Phillips is a great man.

They are therefore hound to take his testimony. About a year ago he made a speech in the Tremont Temple, in Boston, in which lio used the following language: The antislnvcry party had hoped for and planned disunion, because it would lead to the developement of mankind and But, in -vi -n. th reals: iVk- ples it advocates with detestation and horror. It is the advocate of anarchy, not of law; oT treason, not of loyalty; of robbery, not of security; of blood, not of peace; of hate, not cf good will; and, with-an unreasoning raid intolerant spirit which would damn all who differ from its inane dogmatisms, it stops not to befoul with its pestiferous calumnies, every one who stand- in the way of its greed. Such being a just picture of its character, its praises of Gen.

Blunt amount to slanders of his good name.

It might beget a rev- olution, which might, and should it occur, we trust would, spend its force at the ballot-box. But let us hope that better counsels will prevail, and that a resort to so extreme a course, may not be necessary. It remains to be seen, however, whether the radicals will stop short, or whether ihey will push their mad scheme to sach an extreme as to force upon the conservative portion of Congress the step which is said to bo imminent In any event we predict, that when the people do get a chance at ihoso fanatics, they will hurl them from power and place with an energy and indignation, that have never been paralleled in our political history. It will not only be to the objects of their indignation a defeat, but a disgrace. While this arch traitor was uttering such treason, in the great city of Boston, Democrats, all over the country, were being siezed and sent to prison, on mere suspicion of disloyalty to the Government.

It seems almost incredible, but it is so. Phillips was, and is, left undisturbed, and is still allowed to traverse the country and preach' such treason wheresoever he lists and the powers that be, in Washington, instead of rebuking, applaud him. But a short time since, after uttering just such treasonable sentiments as the above after declaring, in the National Capital, in a speech, thai he had been at work for nine gro live in their borders, i the military are authorized to set the negro-. loose, why not locale the in Indiana or Illinois 'i It is trueth might contrary to iiie Constitution and laws of these States: but what of that If military can disre- copy re. the Leavenworth 1-QUinsa a well -tit ad tribute tc Major i.
