An Irishman's Eeasons for ftuitting the
Just tfter the election, the editor of
the Neenab Democrat wrote to the News,
giving the vote of Neenah and Menasba,
with the following excuse for the nnsat
isfactory result in the latter town :
"In the town of Menasha, the Irjsh
voters were, throngh the'treachery of cer
tain prominent Irishmen, sold ont to the
Republicans." We expressed, at the
time, our douUs about the story, and
looked to see its contradiction. The last
number of the Menasha Conservator
brings the expected contradiction .in the
shape of a spicy letter from Miehael Ho
Rn, one of the "prominent Irishmen"
referred to, addressed to his accuser, in
dignantly denying the charge, and de
fining at length, his own political posi
tion. We make 6ome extracts from the
MT POLITICAL POSITION.

Abandon that party whose professions

niVEK AND HABBOB IUPnOVEJIENT.
Our commercial interests, are suffering
nu iniiiionsi oi:aoiiars and hundreds of
vainauieiives are annually sacrificed; for
the want of an appropriation which De
mocracy in its wisdom deems' proper to
withhold from ns, and bestow npon a
more Southern aiid Democratic latitude,
THE HOMESTEAD BILL.
The millions of landless poor, from
Ireland, "England, Germany, fcc., by
whose suffrages the Democratic par'.y
have maintained the ascendancy, had a
right.to expect that the Homestead Bill
would receive a hearty support from their
hands. But we were doomed to disan-
poihtment, and our only hope in this as
wen as otuer measures enumerated was
in the triumph of those whom we had' la
bored to defeat.
THE SOCIAL CONDITION OF THE LABORER.
Labor is the poor man!s capital. In
a Republican Government it should be
respected. It is honorable even in the
Monarchcial Governments of the World,
but in this country we see a persistent ef
fort to degrade labor. Democratic Sen
ators and Representatives in Congress
declare, and the sentiment is echoed by
the press and sanctioned i by the parly,
that labor is the legitimate sphere of
Slaves. That Slavery is the natnral con
dition of the laborer, die. That labor
should be owned and .not -hired, thus
striking a blow at the very liberties of
nine, tenths -of the Democratic voters of
the North, and no voice of condemnation
or opposition is raised to protect n). bnt
ly those whom we have been taught to
regaid as our political enemies.
Once in a year the dead and defunct
carcass of Know Nothingism is, brought
out, and dressed up in fantastic robes to
frighten Irishmen and Germans with.
But when the smoko'nml dnst of the bat
tle has cleared away, we snrvey the
gronnd and find that Massachusetts, Re
publican, and South Carolina, Demo
cratic State, have trampled upon the
rights of foreign born citizens alike. I
also see this 6tcp on tho part of those
two States, condemned by the Republi
can State Conventions of every other
State, while the Democratic Conventions
have no word of censnre for South Car
olina. I see under the administration of
James Buchanan the rights of natural
ized citiiens shamefully trampled upon.
The position of Mr. Cass, in bis letter to
Mr. LeCIerc, called down' the unqualified
reprobation of the. Republican press, bnt
no word of censure from the Democracy.
I see that many Democratic States
make property, and not manhood, the
basis of snffrage, and some exclude every
man from office who is not the owner of
ten slaves, If this is Democracy, count
I wish to dictate to no man. I would
buy no man. And-God knows I would
not disgrace my countrymen by "selling
them," if I could. I always supposed
a man had a right to exercise his own
judgment and follow the dictates of his
own conscience, in the disposition oi ins
rat. If it is "treachery" to exercise me
rights of a freeman, then amend the Con
stitution of our country to conform to
this Democratic Code. If the Demo
cratic party has arrived at the point of
desperation, where it requires its mem
bers to bo deaf, blind and senseless to
every tprinci pie not enunciated by itsjea
dirs. if we must sacrifice our own man
hood and sense of right under the penal
ly of being, branded a "traitor," and
having onr "treachery" heralded, through
the public, prints in prose and poetry, it
is time that party went in dissolution.

A Dondas Democrat recently made a
speech, at Colnraons, Ohio, in the course
of which he had occasion to refer, to the
law passed by the .Democratic Legisla
ture, to preserve tne puruy oi eim.-uu.,
in which a person having, a visible ad
mixture ofiAfrican blood was debarred
from the elective -franchise; stating that
the Bepoblicans made a great ado.abcut
this admixture of.blood. - Said he: "Sup

- Mrv Lincoln, at- Home
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
iiurui American itnus describes ilr. Lin
coln at home.: -
As I was rambling aronnd Springfield;
in the vicinity, of Mr. Lincoln's home;
I accosted a good natured looking lady,'
surrounded with a bevy-of children'; and
plucking flowers' in a garden close Dy.
I inquired for Mr. Lincoln's residence.-r-The
lady turning round at the salutation,
pointed out the house, and, with a singu
lar naivette of expression, and with old
fashioned hospitality, said : "Won't you
walk in ? you'll be welcome there 1"
I could not bnt be impressed with this
unsiuaiea revelation ot the true republi
can simplicity of Mr. Lincoln's charac
ter and of the neighborly cordiality
which thatcharactcr has natnrallv evok
The home of Mr. Lincoln is a simple
two-storied double frame house, on the
corner of Eighth and Edward streets, a
half dozen squares from the railroad tie
pot. The dwelling, which wears a Qua
ker tint of light brown, stands upon a
plateau elevated three or four feet above
the sidewalk. On a brick foundation
wall, rising to the level of tire garden, is
a neat paled fence, with handsome square
posts, inclosing the front and bido of the
property. A back building joins the
main edifice, and in the rear there is a
'rge garden. There is no sign of pre
tension anywhere visible. The building
is singularly qniet-looking and cozy, just
such a home as a sensible man in one of
onr sensible Pennsylvania towns would
care to enjoy.
Mr. Lincoln's manner is in perfect
keeping with these home surroundings,
as I fonnd on personal experience. Hav
ing been specially invited to his room at
the State House, to "assist," as the
French say, at the taking of his physiog
nomy by a Boston artist, Mr. Thomas
M. Jodnson, I had a capital chance of
studying his appearance and judging of
his character. The pictures which have
been already published are but a slight
remove from broad caricature. Mr.
voik's uusi gives tne truest impression
of the head and general bearing. But
neither the likeness by Mr. Hicks of New
York, nor that by Mr. Barry of Boston,
approaches to any degree of fidelity. The
present crayon sketch by Mr. Johnson,
if faithfully reproduced, will be an ad
When Mr. Lincoln is engaged in an
imated conversation, the play of the fea
tures is instinct with intelligence ; the
eye dilates with a generous radiance ;
the cheekbones cease to have any noticeable
prominence, and the mouth, which in
the prints has been made a distressing
feature, is full of character and expres
Happening to ask Mr. Lincoln how it
was that none of the artists had done
him justice, he replied, with a humorous
smile : "It is impossible to get my grace
ful motions .in that's the reason why
none of the pictures .are like me 1"
In his conversational language Mr.
Lincoln gives abundant evidence of thor
ough sound sense and a ripened experi
ence. On pnblic questions he expressed
himself with an unreserved frankness.
On European politics he talked with a
familiarity which only close observation
of passing events could have imparted.
The impression which he creates in the
minds of all who come in contact with
him, is that of a self-made, independent,
honest thinker. He rises far above the
politician : he is a stranger to all tho in
trigues which have cursed party politics ;
he is thoroughly imbued with the true el
ements of statesmanship ; and, in the
highest and noblest sense, be is a man.

Ken Who Do and a Man Who Don't

In order to contrast the position of
Mr. Douglas with that'of the fathers of
this country those most active and in
fluential in securing its liberties and foun
ding its government we propose to
place their and his declarations side by
side, that tho reader may compare them,
and judge which of the parties is right.

are endowed with certain inalienable

the pursuit of happiness. Declaration of

In the Pittsburg Journal of tTsed
inst.,we find the. following:
"CAKTAt SHOULD OWN lTl LABOR." J
Write it out and look at it, all yonla
boring and toiling thousands of this city,
and State. The Democracy, (Heaven
save the' mark 1) at Baltimore bavrsom
inated a ticket, on 'which Johnson of
Georgia, is a candidate for Vice Presi
dent. This man, orthe 17th of Sep
tember, 1856, ;made,a speech iaPhiladel
phia. which he said :.
"We believe capital should own labor;
is there any donbt that there most ;be- a
laboring class everywhere? In all coun
tries and under every form1, of social rorr
ganization there must be a laboring class
a class of men who get their living by
the sweat of their brow and: then there
must be another class that: controls and
direct the canital of the country;'- :
We ask our readers,, thousands of
whom are men whose' hands, have, been
hardened by toil, we ask' 'you now-' .if
yon. can, to vote for 'a: ticket that carries
on it the 'name of a man' who.canilnh
biBshinglyvin! the -capital' of . this .mighty
labor btate, island up and: say. that the
owners of our foundries, rolling mills.
coal mines and farms should own the sin
ews ana the souls or those uio "earn
their Irtad by the sweat of their Irow."
And moreover, this vile calumniator
of honestcr men than he dares to be, puts
his argument boldly upon the gronnd
that capital should own its labor because
it is labor "There is," says he. "a la
boring class, and a ruling class 1"
What man is thisfwho has the hardi
hood to cast such a slur npon our insti
tutions. "A laboring class owned by
capital" indeed 1 Who were Benjamin
Franklin, Roger Sherman, Gen. Green,
and hosts of onr best and greatest men,
but of the laboring class ? Let Johnson
come to our city, andwo will point him
to the capitalist who is also the-laborer.
and the laborer who has his snug sum in
tho bank for a rainy day. This is your
Democratic' hero ofl8G0, whose highest
idea of labor is what he sees scourged
daily to the rico swamps or exposed on
the auction block ! His laborer is the
down-trodden one whom the man-stealer
plucks from his family, chains in the
cofile, and Fends clanking to the life doom
of unrequited toil "To our Democrat
ic Vice-Presidential candidate, every man
of Pennsylvania "who eats his bread in
the sweat of his face," is so much bone
and sinew to be bonght and sold by
"capital" and owned by "capital," whip
ped by "capital," plundered by "capi
tal," and damned if "capital" please !
Mind, it is "labor" that "capital" should
own ; not Africans, nor Indians, nor
Japanese, nor Chinese coolies, nor any
particular class of toilers, but "labor,"
which, the thing being put for the person,
includes all men who do labor, whether
in the deadly rite swamp under the
scorehing sun of Georgia, or by the bla
zing forges of Pennsylvenia 1 The la
boring man who, knowing of that speech
of Johnson's would yet vote for him for
any office, deserves to be a plantation
slave, and should work to the crack of a
whip alt the days of his life.
Insult to Southerners.
A largo party of Southern ladies and
gentlemen have been on a visit recently
to unicago, liuttnio, ana .Niagara falls.
We regret to learn that tho excursionists
will bear with them to their sunny
homes the nnpleasant remembrance of a
gross insult offered them at Marshall,
Michigan, an account of which we ex
tract from a Detroit paper, as follows :
At Marshall, on tbe morning of the
day on which they were expected to pass
over the Central road, a handbill was
circulated through the town in the fol
lowing words :
"Republicans, to the.Rescue 1 Two
hundred Southern slaveholders, with
their slaves, will pass through onr city
this (Monday) afternoon, and will dino
at the depot. This is a flagrant viola
tion of the law of this State, approved
February 15, 1859, which provides as
" 'Every person who shall bring any
negro, mulatto, or other person of color
into the State, claiming him or her as a
slave, shall be punished by imprisonment
in the State prison not more than ten
years, or a tine not exceeding one thou
sand dollars. ' session Laws, 18o8,
"Republicans, to arms ! strike for the
memory of John Brown, Lincoln and
"Marshall, Aug. 6, I860." Louisville
There is a little history of this insnlt
to "Southerners" that deserves a wider
diffusion than it has yet obtained : The
handbills above set forth were got up by
the Douglas men of Marshall, and they
were intended to be distributed all
through the train, of course to intensify
Southern hatred of .northern men ; but
luckily a'leading Republican of the place
got hold of one of tho bills divined its
mlarnous object, . immediately called -the
Republican boys. to the depot,-and about
a hundred of them stood guard there,
and kept out the emissaries employed by
the Douglas men to distribute the bills.
After it was found that the Republicans
had detected the trick,, and, were guard
ing the depot to. prevent, the -shameful ef
fort' at exciting sectional hatred from be
ing successful, the Douglas men kept ont
of the way,.and not a .solitary, bill i got
into the train. Tbe Southern men pav
ed on "without learning anything about
the matter, and it first kgot abroad, byan
exposure of the trick' in the Chicago Tri

Mr. Fillmore was a candidate for Con
gress from the Buffalo District in 1838.
And it so happened that they both took
position in regard to this question of
Slavery at that lime. Resolutions were
introduced and carried throncrh truTTH-
inois Legislature wliich Mr. Lincoln did
not approve, and he and his colleague'
entered a protest on the journals in the
words below. Mr. Fillmore was formal
ly interrogated by a Committee of tire
Anti-Slavery Society, and gave the fol
lowing answer, which we place iri con
trast with Mr. Lincoln's protest :
March 3; 1837.
Tho following-protest waspresented.to

to be spread on the journals, to wit, :,
"Resolutions upon the subject of do

Sir : Your communication of tho 15th
instant, as Chairman of a committee ap
pointed by "the Anti-Slavery Society of
the county of Erie," has just come to
hand. You solicit my answerto the fol
lowing interrogatories :
1st. Do you believe that petitions to
Congress on the subject of slavery and
tua siave traue ongru to be received.and
respectfully considered by the representa
tives of the people ?
2d. Are you opposed to the annexe
tion of Texas under any circumstances,
as long as slaves are held, therein ?
3d. Are you in favor ef Congress ex
ercising all the constitutional power it
possesses to abolish -the international
slave trado between the States ?
4th. Are yon in favor of immediate
legislation for the abolition of slavery in
the District of Columbia ?
I am much engaged, and have no time
to enter into an argument, or to explain
at length my reasons for my opinion. I
shall therefore content mvself for. tha
present by answering all your interroga
tories in the affirmative, and leave to
somo future occasion a more extended
discussion of the subject,
The North American goes .on to aay :
At that early day Mr. Lincoln appos
ed "Abolition doctrines," while Mr. Fill
more not only favored them, bnt was
among their most radical champions.
He and the men who acted with him are
morally responsible for most, of tbe, agi
tation which has since followed, because
they were not only far in adrance of air
rational and practical sentiment, but his
letter proclaims opinions wholly incon
sistent with all correct ideas of. constitu
tional obligation, and which, if enforced,,
would lead to the worst form of section
alism, and result in a disruption f the
Union. Mr. Seward's "irrepressible con
flict" is the essence of moderation com
pared with Mr. 'Fillmore's letter,' and:
neither Garrison nor WendelL Phillips hsa"
ever uttered more thorough Abelitionim
than is -embodied in his brief bat pointed
response to the Anti-Slavery committee,
whose votes and favor he desired to se
cure. Contrast it with the naaly.aid'
voluntary protest of .Mr.'LiBeoln, and:
the effect will be still more striking.
