FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
" The Greatest Living Statesman !"
It ia amusins to witness the efforts
of the " Squatters" to exalt their fcmall
potato candidate into a first-class states
man, and claiming turn as tbe compeer
of Clay, Webster, Calhoun and Benton !
Who ever thooght of Douglas beyond
the moment of seeing his name mention
ed in some Congressional report, as long
a either of the above-mentioned great
men lived ? Who dreamed, then, that
he would erer c ire to the Presidency ?
He was rezardet, as one of the lowest
grade of SeMtore, who never uttered oth
er than commonplace remarks, and was
noted (in tho Congressional records) only
for giving strictly partisan votes. No
speech of his was ever published, except
in the Appendix to the Congressional
Globe, or in some Illinois country news
paper in his interest. IIo was never ta
ken into consideration in the great affairs
of Congress, farther than to calculate that
lib vote would count one on the Demo
cratic sido of some closely contested mea
sure. He was never quoted as authority.
and no Senator ever aroso purposely to
answer his arguments it would have
been a wasto of time. His speeches and
snarling interruptions appeared in the
Congressional reports, as a part of the
proceedings, and were only read and com
mented npon as the outpourings of his
tools, " dirty work" Logan Bnd fire
eating" Yallandigham, now are as the
natural ebullitions of a bull-dog nature
because they were in tho proceedings, and
could not escape notice. In short, his
position in the Senato was that of the
half-burnt and broken bricks in a wall
jammed in to fill up, but never assigned
a place where it was desirable to have
Etrength or finish.
But Clay, Webster and Calhonn died,
and Benton left the Senate. Then, and
not till then, did Douglas distinguish
himself. Unable to conceive and carry out
any great and good measure, he hesitated
not to render his name notorious by de
stroying tho grand fabrics erected by the
Fathors of the Republic, as tokens of a
covenant of peace between the North and
tbe South. Far better to havo remained
in obscurity, than to distinguish himself
in the disgraceful manner he did by
overthrowing a compact which had been
bo sacredly guarded by the great spirits
that bad just departed, and violating the
cherished principles of the founders of tho
Government ! Then, and in that way,
did Donglas become famous. For this
he is termed the "greatest living states
man," and claimed to occupy the position
of Clay, Webster, Calhoun and Bonton!
DoKiraAH County Dispatch. Tho
first number of this paper, (late Iowa
Point Dispatch,) published at Troy, by
J. W. Biggcrs, has been received. It is
Democratic in politics, goes in for a uni
on of its shivered party, and believes in
Donglas. Wo fear it is one of those pa
pers that the gods love destined to an
early death. Be it understood that the
wish is not father to the thought, but wo
judge from the past. The Democracy of
Doniphan Connty are not the sort that
support papers yon might as well try
to teach an elephant to chew tobacco.
However, Biggers is a good printer, and
a working OBe, and that is the kind that
deserveEoccess. Moreover, if the Demo
cracy of ''Doniphan County pretend to
have a paper at all, they should have one
that is not afraid nor ashamed to own it.
This last remark will probably be taken
as an insinuation npon the Doniphan
Post. Well, we can't help it !
' Emigrants are still leaving Kan
sas in large numbers. A perfect panic
seems to nave seized npon some lo
calities. We suggest that abont Novem
ber, the Administration cause a census to
be taken of the Territory, to ascertain
whether she has tho requisite popnlation
to be admitted as a State. It wonld
probably fall short," and there would be
some show of excuse for keeping her
JHT A Republican demonstration was
held at Indianapolis, last week, which
was the largest political gathering of the
season, with the exception of the late
Springfield meeting. The people are
enthusiastic for Old Abe. We iope they
won't do it all in holding big meetings,
and forget to vote.
The Squatters are preparing to
have grand blow-out at St. Joseph,
sometime daring the present month.
Among other distinguished speakers,
Douglas himself has been invited, and is
expected to be present.
'The Wyandotte Gazette hss been
revived. Mr. Macdonald has associated
witL him, is tho editorial department,
tbe late oditor of the Ellenvilla (N Y.)
A bloody conflict was witnessed in our
streets, one day last week, between two
individuals, (ono with a red head and
the other with a black head,) who, it
appeared, had bad an old difficulty in
Wisconsin, and happening to meet in
our streets, they renewed it.
First Bound, (which we didn't fcc.)
Blackhead crowded on Redhead, and re
ceived a spat on the smeller, causing the
juice to fly.
Second Hound. lhe combatants in
sinuated each that the other did not ex
actly stick to the truth , a demonstration
ensued, in which Bedhead tore Black
head's shirt off, whereupon tho latter re
marked that he didn't care for shirts !
Third Round. Tbe question of verac
ity still remained nnsettlcd ; tho parties
repeating that each other did not stick to
the facts, and clinching it by calling up
on a name whereby they violated ono of
the Ten Commandments, and greatly
shocked the refined ears of tbe respectable
and highly religious bystanders. Ended
by Redhead kicking Blackhead in the
neighborhood of the thigh, and Black
head assuring him that ho didh't want
him to kick him again !
Fourth Round. Tho adversaries (for
the information of the bystanders) pro
nounced each other to bo male progeny
of females of 'the canine species, leading
said bystanders to believe that they wero
about to witness a terrible dog-fight; and
they emphasized their assertions by nam
ing a structure which men erect across
watercourses, preparatory to entering up
on the milling business. Blackhead de
clared he had a young brother present,
who could whip Redhead. Tho relative
referred to, a strapping youth aged some
twenty years and six feet, after informing
the crowd that one of tbe belligerents was
his brother and tho other his brother-in-
law, commenced rolling up his shirt
sleeves, whereupon a bystander suggested
that he had better go slow. Redhead
kicked at Blackhead, but missing him,
came near turning a summerset back
ward. Fifth and last Round. Redhead asser
ted that Blackhead had threatened to kill
him, in Wisconsin, in consequence of
which he bad left tho State ; now Black
head had followed him, and if somebody
would give him a pistol, he would shoot
him. Blackhead crowded upon him,
when Redhead kicked again, and Black
head caught his foot. By a dextrous
movement Redhead caught his adversary
by tho hair, and extricated his foot, and
then came the tug. Blackhead was the
heaviest, but Redhead had the longest
arms, and pelted it te him briskly ; got
him at an advantage, and poured the
licks into his face and tho side of his
head. Bystanders yelled to put it into
his ribs, but he declared ha couldn't.
Blackhead fell, and Redhead on top of
him, still manling away. The young
man, who was brother to one and broth
er-in-law to the other, now concluded to
" go in lemons," and assist his brother.
But the figure was carried too far for his
comfort, for a saloon keeper, who had
been attracted to the spot while in the
act of using a lemon-masher, took the
youngster a tremendous " diff " over the
noggin witu it, staggering bim, and
drawing tho gravy. Young man conclu
ded it wasn't a free fight, and didn't like
lemons. In tho meantime, Blackhead
succeeded in turning Redhead, but before
he could use his advantage. Redhead
planted his feet in Blackhead's stomach,
and put him nnder again. He now had
Blackhead in a a fair way to prepare him
for the manufacture of sausages and
mince-pies ; but instead of doing so, he
jumped up and scampered
was out of breath !
Remarks. Blackhead was considera
bly disfigured iu the frontispiece, and was
minns a shirt, while Redhead did not
exhibit a scratch. Young "Lemons,"
who was brother to one and brother-in-law
to the other, kept robbing his scalp
lock, which was somewhat stained, re
minding one of Indian customs.' He
took Blackhead by the arm, remarking
that they wonld go now, and wait nntil
they got a better chance. After going
into the saloon and smiling, they crossed
over to the other side of " Big Muddy."
We judgo they were not long in getting
a " better chance," as several days after
wards we observed Redhead, Blackhead
and "Lemons" come into town together,
ic a wagon, as "thick as three in a bed."
3T At a recent Donglas demonstra
tion at CarrolIton.Jllinois, the old repro
bate clerical shoulder-hitter, Peter Cart-
wright, took occasion to let off a consid
erable amount of his superfluous egotis
tical gass, for the edification of the crowd.
In the course of a ten minutes speech,
he told abont a dozen lies on Lincoln,
talked about slapping people's jaws, and
other similar stuff, all of which went to
prove that he is abont as fit for a minis
ter of the gospel as a hog is for a jewel
ler. Such cattle as Cartwright have had
their day. The Church has no uso for
them, and they do well to go into the
dirty work of the party that so intensely
hates "political preachers 1"
A Bell paper publishes a biogra
phy of its candidate, in which it is stated
that he was a State Senator at the ago of
20. A queer Constitution they most
have down in Tennessee, that allows a
person to hold a seat in tho higher branch
of the Legislature, before be is old enough
to be entitled to a vote.
A Stroke or Pouct. We publish
elsewhere a notice of Douglas' reception
at Norfolk, Va. It will be seen, that In
his remarks he gave the Disanionists
cold comfort. This would doubtless
greatly heighten his popularity in the
North, did not the people in that section
know the little trickster as well as they
do. He is sharp, and intended these re
marks for buncombe. He knows weM
enough that ho can hope for nothing from
the South ; and anything he may say or
do, cannot injure his chances down there.
He knows equally as well, that every
word lie utlere-will be instantly telegraph
ed throughout tho North, and vainly
tLinks that his seeming to beard the Dis
union lion in his den, will creato a reac
tion in his favor at the North. He
paved the way for this, when ho sneered
at the Southern niggers, in his clam
speech at Rocky Point. But he is doom
ed to disappointment. The Northern
pcoplo have witnessed his trickery nntil
they are thoroughly acquainted with his
shnfflincr and prevarication. He is a
"dead cock ic the pit," and is now
"To Tnia Complexion." Wo leam
from tho Elwood Freo Press, that onr
honest Democratic Connty Commission
ers havo ordered the Sheriff, Treasurer
and County Attorney out of the Court
House, to make room for Captain Heed
to stow his rotten carcass. We suggest
that they now furnish him with water-
rc'ons and whiskey, at tho expense of
the County !
Seriously speaking, is it not an outrage
for the Democratic Commissioners to
drive the County officers from their pro
per places, in a bnilding erected at an
enormous expense, with the people's
money, and giving their room to a dis
graceful , pettifogging libeT upon human
ity,. who has no right to i and is fit for
nothing but to do dirty party work and
destroy strychnino whiskey? Let this
be remembered. An election comes off
A Stbaw. Douglas has just comple
ted a tour through tho Eastern States,
and has had excellent advantages to as
certain what his chances are. That he
considers his case bilious, is significant
ly foreshadowed in recent dispatches from
the South. It will be recollected how
he has heretofore spurned all coalition
with the Brcckinridgo wing; but the
same dispatch that announced his arri
val in Raleigh, stated that he would im
mediately set about making arrange
ments for a fusion with the Breckinridge
party. This sudden subsiding of his grit,
is as much as if to say, "If I go it alone,
S3T One of the sureties of Fowler, the
thieving Postmaster of New York, was
George Law ; and he will probably get
out of tho scrapo by somo technicality of
the law. What better could be expect
ed ? Law amassed a fortune by swind
ling the Government on live oak con
tracts; and who is foolinh enough to sup
pose that it will be taken from him to
refund another scoundrel's stealings.
While the Administration was retaining
a robber in office, knowing that he was
a dcfanlter, it took care to leave flaws to
save other party favorites from suffering
for it. lint the pcoplo can stand it.

subjects appertaining to the health ; such
as Clothing, Cooking, Exercise, Rest,
Digestion, Ventillation, Bathing, Tem

J Is it True? The Troy Dispatch says
it learns, from a reliable source, that the
Elwood Free Press receives $1500 for
publishing the Delinquent Land List of
this County. We hope and believe there
is some mistake in this. If it is true, the
Freo Press never again onght to mention
Jail Contracts, and the like. At a rough
estimate, we wonld have done the same
work for 8500, at the highest, and per
haps a careful calculation would have
reduced it below that amount. We
would have considered ourself well paid,
at that, and would not have " ratted" a
narticle. Wo have been told that tho
fees for such work are fixod by law, but
have not scon the law. At the very
highest published advertising rates, the
work could not amount to mora than
8475 or 8500.
Ono of the most patriotic indi

Bell-ringers of that County recently held
a nominating Convention, at which nom
inations were made, from Coroner up to
Congresman, commencing with the low
est. C. Constable was up for Coroner,
but was unsuccessful ; and in the ballot
ings for ovcry other office up to the very
highest, the name of the inevitable Con
stable fignred, with no better success than
at the outset. Well, let them do as they
pleaso with their other offices, they can't
prevent him from being a Constable.

Judge Donglas had an enthusiastic re
ception at Norfolk, and spoke in the
presence of 5,000 people.
In tho middlo of his address, a slip of
paper was handed to him. It was cut
from the Norfolk Daily Argus, and con
tained two polite questions :
The 1st is : 'If Abraham Lincoln be
elected President of the United States,
would the Southern States be justified in
seceding from tbe Union." Mr. Doug
las said : "To this I emphatically an
swer No 1" Great applause.
"The election of a man to the Presi
dency by tbe American people in con
formity with tho Constitntion of tho Uni
ted States, would not justify any attempt
at dissolving this glorious fJonfoueracy.
Second : "If they, the Southern States,
secede from the Union upon tho inaugur
ation of Abraham Lincoln, before he
commits an overt act against their con
stitutional rights, will yon advise or vin
dicate resistance by force to their seces
sion? "I answer emphatically, that it is the
duty of the President of theT- 1 States
and all in authority nnder bin , to en
force the laws of the United Stn.es pass
ed by Congress, and as tho Courts ex
pound them, anil I, as in duty bound by
my oath and fidelity to tho Constitution,
wonld do all in my power to aid the
Government of the United States in
maintaining the supremacy of the laws
against all resistance to them, come from
whatever quarter it might.
"In other words, I think the President
of the Unitod States should treat all at
tempts to break up the Union by resis
tance to its laws as Old Hickory treated
the nullifiers in 1832." Applause

D0CGLA8 AT THE SoUTH. TllO Stump
tonr of Donglas at tho South promises
to bo not wholly without good result. '
At Norfolk, Virginia, two important com
mitments were drawn from him, by
means of tho cross questioning to which
he was there (as ho should bo .every
where) subjected. First, he disavowed
any sympathy with those who threaten
secession in case of Mr. Lincoln's elec
tion. This was applauded by his large
audience, showing conclusively that the
treasonable schemo of Rhett, Keitt, and
Boyce will have no support from the
masses of tho people of Virginia. Sec
ondly, Mr. Douglas pledged himself to
aid the Government in coercing the South
into submission, after' the Jacksonian
fashion of 1832, should that section, or
any part of it, attempt to resist the Fed
eral authorities, under the Presidency of
Abraham Lincoln. Now, this is sub
stantially what frank John Hickman was
mncn censured ami vnunen lor saying
last winter. Wo arc not informed that
this part of the stump candidate's speech
wm applanded iu Virginia. He could
say no less, however, if required to speak
at all. Possibly it will not tend to con
ciliate the Georgia Democracy toward
him ; but they wero about as anery as
they could be, already. Cincinnati Ga

The Vote ok New York. The New

Beyond all cavil, tho vote of New
York if cast for Lincoln elects him by
the people; and jnst as certain as wo
now write, so certain is it, that this Stale
will give the Republican ticket an over
whelming vote. Mr. Seward says fonr
times twenty thousand ; and we say a
larger majority over all, if the contem
plated Union is effected, than will be
our plurality if each faction votes hon
estly for it nominees. What we most
desire, to render tbe approaching csnvats
as exciting as it u ill be important and
interesting, ia precisely snch union of the
factions opposed to the Republican par
ty as the Herald and its associates aro

be elected. We believe that the pnb'ic
sentiment of tho State is almost unani

no longer be safe to intrust the destinits of
the South in a Union where its popular
majority favors the hostile and aggres
sive idess of the Republican party.
