le lis of ihe scenes whk-h the agonies of an ex
nirin State evoke. The crumbling fabric o
the Roman Empire, though worn out by civil
wars and cancerojs with corrupt ion and dej
hauchertes, involved the civilized world in five
centuries of darkness. There wasyet in thai
cankered and tyrannous organization lhf
strength to deluge Chrisiendom in blood, and
blacken the area of civilization with fife.

BUT ONE SURVIVOR now remains
of the gallant prty' of seventy that burnt
the frigate Philadelphia in the harbor of
Tripoli, after she had been taken by the
authorities of that country.
The death of Joseph KnoxBoyd, in
Washington city, on the 15th inst., leaves
but one survivor ofjjiat memorable event,
namely. Commodore Morris. . '
In 1803. the Basbaw of Tripoli took it
into his head lo impose upon the young
American republic; and would not agree
to trade with ber unless she would pay
tribute. The United States refused to do
any such thing, and the Tripolitans cojn
menced the game of pirating upon Amr
can Commercial vessels. War was then
declared by the United States agair.st

were taken prisoners. The former con

As soon as ibis disastrous news was

Decatur conceived tbe project of destroy

Getting permission from the commander
of the fleet, he called for volunteers to the
desperate act. He obtained 70 men of

A transaction has just occur
red a trqde made, by which a human
being, and living on our own soil, has
been bought with money and transferred

The facts of the case are as follows :
Some few weeks since the father, Bena-
dito Fontanarosa, and son' Were brought
into the Police Court on a charge of lead
ing idle and dissolute lives. The father
went about the streets begging, and was
usually accompanied by the boy. Both
parties were found guilty and sentenced
to.four months in the House of Correc
A few days after, Rev. Nathaniel Col
ver went over to South Boston, saw the
boy, was much pleased with, him, and de
termined in his heart and pocket to at
'once strike a trade. More than all this,
it got wind that the boy was a Catholic
which was of course a great crime. So
much so, very possibly, along with the
consideration that the boy was a very
promising one, that it was bis duty to
In good time the papers were made out
and doubly clinched, and Colver, with a
chosen interpreter, went to tbe father, and
then and there, by his own rendering and
interpretation, made the bargain, paid the
stipulated. sum in cash, had the instrument
signed, and took the boy from father.
This constitutes as open a sale of a hu
man being as could possibly be. The re
cord of the slave-mart could not out par
Such an infamous transaction as this,
coming from one who has occupied the
position, and held the fanatical opinions
of Colver, has struck us with amazement.
It discovers not only the most scandalous
inconsistenev't but want of principle and
humanity which never before came to our
Tbe following is the

by which Colver obtained possession of
the boy. The reader will please give the
its proper emphasis and meaning.

than all, for one like Mr. Colver. There
is truly a rottenness in Denmark our phi
losophy has never dreamed of.
In the event of the boy running away,
Mr. Colver would stand in the same rela-.
tion to his properly that Potter did to the
Fugitive Slave Sims. He would have
the same right to pursue him, and pre
cisely the same constitutional questions
would be brought up. Who knows but
that this boasted "conscience" l'arson will
yet have occasion to chase and reclaim
through the law the human blood he has
got from the droppings of tbe sanctuary.
Altogether this is a most amazing and
unexpected movement of the back-bone
of Free Soil party.
It is a singular coincidence that the
signing of this instrument was just one
year after Hon. Daniel Webster's great
speech on the Compromise Bill, in the
United States Senate. The one effort
