Mr. Cooper presented the memorial of

Mr. Cass. I think I have seen that
statement through the pajn-rs, quoted, 1
believe, from that very paper. I have
I not seen the paper itself, but 1 have seen
tats sutieiiient quoieu.
Mr. liadger. Assuming that to be so,
1 wish to suggest to my friend from Mi
chigan, whether it' would not be wise, in
connection' with his proposition in regard
to foreign governments, to consider the
propriety ot some measures at home, in
anticipation of such a result, not at all
unlikely, I fear, for securing religious lib
erty at home. v
Mr. Cass. I will merely observe, in
respect to that, that I take it this govern
" ment has nothing to do with religious lib
erty at home. That is a question for the
Mr. Badger. Then I wish to suggest,
supposing sucU an event to happen, if, m

State by James Aswell tw. Tlieodore Au
gustus Nixon.
Superior Court of Law, Fall Term, 1 852.
'James Aswell was a sorrowful man.
His griefs were manifold, multitudinous.
James Aswell was also a Fiddler ; not
strictly a professional violinist. But he
played on his own hook, as it were ; to
please himself though he would not
scorn sometimes in his better moods, to
please a few of his friends.
Musicjhath charmrte -ont!ie the sav
age breast It cheereth the saddened
spirit, and drivelh dull care away. So,
at least, thought James Aswell one night
in August last, as he took himself to Cas
well's Doggery and essayed to solace him
self with corn juice and music, after a ikv
litical defeat. " Away with melancholy'
had already been sawed off with surprising
ly hilarious effect. And "Landlord till
tlie flowing bowl" was now in process of
vigorous execution. Horse-hair and cst
gut were kissing each other in ecstucy ;
hud become right jolly together, and, in
fact, were getting to be aliout as royally
tipRV as Jemmy himself when in stag-
gered Iheodore Angustus JSixon, " hi tn-
iHph-adv4tieiig," Now, Thendrre had
been treating yuotl luck with whiskey, j Men talk much of the dignity of labor,
until Oh be joyful" was becoming all j but in itself, as we have often said, there
over him. Of course, hearing the music, ja no dignity in labor; it is the person,
he took up the role, aad incontinently the cause, and the motive, not the toil that
pitched into a most obstroHi!otis double confers dignity on art. "There is nothing
shufuV, iu a style of execution which j ;,t toil," said ll. Greeley, " of any kind,
would have shamed the madde-t dancing that enables and dignities its votary, un
XJtiaker in New Ix'banon. Even tliMtaw it be the inotiv which impel iiim to
did hot satisfy the vaulting ambition of ; pursue it." This is correct, strictly speak.
Thcodoro Augutiis, and attempting t frrg, but there can be no doubt that some'
t' pomhine double shuffle, pigeon-wing, loecnpationsjiave a mental elevating ten-aiid.lmck-step
in one mighty' effort fdency, while there are othvrs that have a
Terpsichorean skill, his gyrations led him : degrading one. Hut so far as it relates to
beyond his limits, Fiddle and Fiddler bit tr,i0 worth, the couplet of Pope is good,
the dust, and the iollv Bacchanal was! mid nnnlienlibt tu man in every condition.

Tlie Crystal Fatace in this City was re
opened with very appropriate ceremonies
on Thursday of last week. The iiomp
and display f high civil and military
dignitaries witnessed last year, when the
exhibition was first opened to the public,
and the total subordination ot art and in
dustry, to gaud and glitter, on that occa
sion, were amply attoned for on this one.
It was an ovation to the genius of indus
try and art. There was a procession of
the Association and citizens through the
city which, as a whole, was a dead failure,
as it should be for processions, except
upon very extraordinary occurrences,
should be thrown to the moles and the
bats. In our opinion they are foolish and
unnecessary affairs. The ceremonies with
in the Crystal 1'ulace, however, were in
good taste ; the only objection was too
much tpovting, a mistake which migjit
have been avoided if the Directors had
only employed one clergyman and one
lawyer, instead of three of each class, to
make speeches. Elihu Uurritt, " the learn
ed blucsmith," and Horace Greeley, were
the otilv mechanics, who made speeches.
There was one idea on which most of the
spuakerg seemed to dwell erroneonstyvandjret trow be1 re, stuffed into his boots, and a

The following is the way of adminis
tering tlie knoiit : Conceive, reader, a ro
bust man, full of life and health. This
man is condemned to receive fifty w a
hundred blows of the knout He is con
ducted, Mf naked, to the place chose&L
fur this kind of execution ; all that he lias
on is a pair of simple linen drawers round
his extremities; his hands are bound to
gether, with the palms laid flat against
one another; the cords are breaking his
wrists, but no one pays tlie slightest at
tention to that He is laid flat upon hi
belly, on a frame inclined diagonally, and
at the extremities of which are fixed iron
rings ; his hands are fastened to one end
of the frame, and his feet to the other;
he is then stretched in such a manner that
he cannot make a single movement, just'
as an eel's skin is stretched in order to
dry. This act of stretching the victim
causes the bones to crack, and dislocates
them what does that matter I In a lit
tle time his bones will crack and be dis
located in a very different manner.
At a distance of five and twenty paces
stands another man : it is the public ex
ecutioner. He is dressed in black vel-,,
colored cotton shirt, buttoning at the side.
His sleeves are tucked up, so that noth
ing may thwart or embarrass' him in his
movements. With both hands he grasp)
the instrument of punishment a knout
This consists of a thong a thick leather,
cut in a triangular oTiTO,1roTiTluTirtave
yards long, and an inch wide, tapering
tt' at one end, and broad at the other;
the small end is fastened to a little wood
en handle, about two feet long." " '
The signal is given ; no one ever latses"
the trouble to read the sentence. The
executioner advances a few steps, with
his body bent, holding the knout in both
hands, while the long thong drag's along
the ground between his legs. On com
ing to about three or four paces from the
prisoner, he raise?, hy a vigorous inove
muit, the Uuotit toward the top of his
hu, and tlieu instantly draws it down
with rapiditj towards his knees. Tlie
