one expected that the Northern States,

was perfectly apparent that his nomina

the Democratic party in every State.
0a the other hand, it was well understood
that the nomination of on unobjectiona

The Democracy of Illinois are pretty
much bankrupted for arguments; but they
nave one last resource when everything
else fails-ererlasting "nigger equality."
Of course there will be no "nigger equal

as the Republican Dart nrnnn.o r ..-
the Territories for free white men, while
iut. iemocracy leave the way open for
their introduction,, it is difficult to see
how the slang phrase here quoted applies
to any other party than themselves.
lint mere are a few facts in this connec
tion which have a more special signifi
cance, as fixing upon the Democratic
party the responsibility of all the negro
equality which prevails in the United
In the State of Maino the negro is a

party enacted that negroes should be cit
In the 6tato of New Hampshire no

Hampshire, at the time when cititizen
ship was conferred upon colored persons,
was overwhelmingly Democratic, and the
Democratic party enacted the laws which
gave them tlid right of suffrage !
In tho State of Massachusetts negroes
are citizens. The rights of citizenship
and of the elective franchise were con
ferred upon them by the Democratic
party of that ntato at the only time when
they ever held the reins of government
, In the State of New York all colored

privilege upon them was larcelv Demo
cratic was presided ovor by Martin Van
Bnren. then the great Democratic leader
of the State and tho same Martin Van
Biiren was subsequently elected President
of the United States by the Democratic
party of the nation I And at the same
time Richard M. Johnson of Kentucky,
who had actually married a colored wo
man on the most approved principles of
amalgamation, was nominated for Vice
President by a National Democratic Con
vention, and elected to that high office
by Democratic votes I
in i ne onto or unto persons ot less
than one half negro blood are allowed to

conferred upon them the Democratic par
ty were in power, and they framed the
Constitution which extended tho right of
suffrage to persons of color ! T'
Some years ago, the Legislature Wis
consin provided for a popular vote on
tbe question of allowing negroes to vote
at all elections, the same as white people.
At this time the Democratic party was
largely in the majority in Wisconsin, and
they frre responsible for the attempt to
establish negro equality in that State"!
Now, let us see what the Republican
party has donejn theway of negro equal
ity. Will any gentleman Democrat pnt
his fingers on an act .which couples them
with that doctrine ? It is most true that
the Republican party are opposedtd". tbe
enslavement of any who. bear the Divine
image and likeness. It is equally true
that no man can be a good Democrat in
these days, unless the hrst article in nis
creed is, that he "don't care whether sla
very is voted down or voted op." But
here are five States which hap, introduc
ed negro equality into their laws and con
stitutions, and a sixth where they pro
posed to do so, though thepeople failed
to ratify tho proposition. And not only
so. but the Democracy of the United
States elevated to the Presidency one of
the champions of thexdoctrino, and to
the Vice Presidency a person who was
actually married to a colored woman,
and who, in tho event of tho President's
death, would havo been mistress of the
White.HouseJ ..Quite likely she would
havo lent grace to the Presidential lev
ees. Quite Jikely she wonld'Jmvo re
ceived the foreign Ambassadors' with dig
nity and suavity ; we have always heard
her spoken o(tas an5 accomplished lady.
But oh, what a comment'8 on Democracy
and ne'gro equality !
We know -of nothing- more utterly
swinish than this incessant cry of "negro
equality.-!' It is fair to presume that
the persons who are so greatly exercised
on that theme are suffering in social po
sition from competition with negroes.
It is the most natural inference in the
world that Jim Allen and the editor of the
State Register are somewhat in danger of
changing places with, their colored neigh
bors.' ' Ittis not improbable that they re
quire additional legislation to counteract
atnoveraent in nature and'soeiecy-likely
to elevate the) negro at their expense.
And we cannot say that they are far
wrong. fFor if anything in a reel State,
a civilized country and an enlightened
age, is thoroughly debasing, and degrad-.
ing.'itls the habitual defence ofslavery
on the p'art of one whoso every; interest

Mr. lincoln'i Eulogy on Henry Clay.
Whilo,aJew of the pretended follow
ers of Henry Clay are leaguing with his
life-long traducers to perpetuate the do
graded rule of tho Democratic party, it
is refreshing to read the touching tribute
of Abraham 0 Lincoln to the "Gallant
Harry of the West."' naid on the n.
sion of the dcath.of tho latter. We eive
an extract :'" ' a -. '
"On the 4th day of July, 1776. the
people of a few feeble and oppressed col
onies of Great Britain, inhabiting a por
tion of tha Atlantic coast of North
America, publicly declared their nation
al independence, and made their appeal
to the jnstice of their canse, and to the
oa ot battles, for the maintenance of
that declaration. That people were few
in numbers, and without resources, save
only their wise heads and stout hearts.
Within the first year of that declared in
dependence, and while its maintenance
waB yet problematic while the bloody
struggle ociwecn these resolute rebels and
their haughty would-be masters was still
waging of undistinguished parents, and
in an obsenre district of one of those col
onies, Henry Clay was born. Tho in
fant nation and tbe infant child began
tho race together. For three quarters of
a century they have traveled hand in
hand. They have been companions erer.
Tho nation has passed its peril, and is
free, prosperous, and powerful. Tho
child has reached his manhood, his mid
dle age, his old age, and is dead. In all
that has concerned tho nation tho man
ever sympathized, and now the nition
mourns for the man.
"But do we realise that Henry Clay is
dead ? Who can realize that never
again that majestic form shall rise in the
council chamber of his country, to beat
back tho storms of Anarchy which may
mrcaten, or ponr tho oil ot peaco upon
the troubled billows, as they rage and
menace around ? Who' 'can realizo that
the workings of that mighty mind have
ceased that tho thrubbings of that gal
laut heart are stilled that tbe mighty
sweep of that graceful arm will be felt
no mure, and tho magic of that eloquent
tongue, which speaks as spake no other
tongue besides, is hushed hushed for
ever ? Who can realize that freedom's
champion the champion of a civilized
world, and of all tongues and kindreds,
and people, has indeed fallen ? Alas,
in Those dark hours or peril and dread
which our land has experienced, and
which she may be called to experience
again to whom now may her people
look up tor that council and advice,
which only wisdom 'and experience and
patriotism can give, and which only the
undoubting confidence of a nation will
receive? 0, ,
"But Henry Clay is dead. His long
and eventful lifo is closed. Onr country
is prosperous and powerful ; but could it
have been quite all it has been, and is to
be, without Henry Clay ? Such a' man
the times have demanded, and such, in
th.e Providence of God, was given us.

Louisville Journal. t
Clay aad Douglas Contrasted.
The Douglasiles contend that "slaves
areproperty, and stand on an equal foot
ing with all other property." Tho lan
guage used by Senator Douglas in his
New Orlcaus speech, according to the
Register's own report, is as follows :
"The Democracy of Illinois in the
first place, accept the decision of the Su
preme Court of tho United States in the
case of Dred Scott, as an authoritativo
interpretation of tho Constitution. In
accordance wifh that decision, we hold
that slaves are property, and hence on an
equality with all other kinds of property,
And the owner of a slavo has the same
right to move into a territory and carry
his slave property with him, as the own
er of any other property has to go there
and carry his property."
It will bo seen that .Mr. Douglas here
not only commits himself, but all tho
Democrats of Illinois lo tho new dogma,
so "distinctly"-and "expressly" accord
ing to tho Dred Scott decision, affirmed
in the Constitution. '
Compare this doctrino with that enun
ciated so eloquently by the Great Clay in
his speech in the United States Senate,
July 22 1850. rSaid he:
"I am aware there are gentlemen who
maintain that, in virtue of the Constitu
tion, tho right to carry slaves south of
that line already exists, and that, of
course, those who maintain that opinion
want no' other security for the transpor
tation of their slaves south of that line
(3G deg. 30 min.) than the Constitution.
If I had not heard that opinion avowed,
I should -have regarded it as one of the
extraordinary assumptions; and the most
indefeasible position taken by man. The
Constitution neither created nor does it
continue Slavery. Slavery existed inde
pendent of tho Constitution ; and ante
cedent to the Constitution ; and it was
dependent in the States, not upon the
will of Congress, but upon the laws of
tho respective States. .The Constitution
is silent and passive upon the subject of
tbe institution of slavery, or rather, it
deals with the fact as a fact that exists,
without having created, continued, or
being responsible for it in the States."
We ask fthe.Democracy of Illinois,"
we ask tho Whigs of tho .North-west,
who is right : Stephen A. Douglas or
Henry Clay ? Do they believe with Mr.
Douglas that the Constitution places
slave property npon tbe. same footing with
all other kind of property, and that under
the Constitution it has the right to go in
to tho Territories and be protected there ;
or do they believe with Mr. Clay, that
such a doctrine is "one of the most extra
ordinary assumptions and the most, in
defeasible position takon by. man?"
In the above extract Mr. Clay, states
correctly the principle of the Republican
party. Does it not commend itself to
ill? Springfield, (JU.) Journals -.
' "My Great Principle."
The doctrino of Douglas "my great
principle" as expounded by the Enqui
rer, is that tho Constitution confers udou
slaveholders tiie rioht to take their slaves,
like other "property," into the United
States Territory, while the neoDle of ev
ery Territory have the moot ,to forbid
mat property to be thns brought in. Our
neighbor, as well as Douglas himself, has
twisteo himself into a' creat varietv of
shapes, under the vain delusion that it is
possible to get rid of the absurd "self-
contradiction" of this doctrine. Yet all
the ingennity which has been wasted in
tne advocacy of this "great principle"
has utterlv failed to relieve its ridiculons
inconsistency. This Douglasito "popu
lar sovereignty" is a transparent hum
bug. Few people are now so silly as to
bo cheated by this grossly misused phrase.
Douglas and his supporters would have
it represent a palpable and direct contra
diction. The "great principle," among
discerning men, has ceased to bo regard
ed as anything else than a great lie.
Just look at the "great principle" once
more, before it finally disappears. Look
at the two "maim" which it nrocloims.
J. no slaveholder has the right, says Doug
las, nnder the Constitution of the United
States tho supremo law of tho land
to take his slaves, like all other property.
into the Territories. Tho squatters on
the other hand, have a right to say the
siavenoiaer snail not coma into the Ter
ritories with any slavo property. Here
is a plain conflict of "rights." Both
cannot co-exist. That is self-evident.
The attempt to sustain both is perfectly
idle. Yet such is tho "great principle,"
in its last analysis. Contradiction im
plies falsehood. The pretense of sustain
ing a direct contradiction is a palpable
cheat. If tho Constitution authorizes
the taking of slaves into tho Territories,
that anthonty is absolute. If, on the
other hand, the squatter has a well groun-
ueu ngnt to prevent slaves lrora coming
into tne .territories, that right, too, is ab
solute. A co-existence or reconcilement
of the two is impossible.
Let us look at the absurdity of this
"great principle" from another poiut of
view, xno constitution of the United
States is the supreme law .of tho nation.
No Sjato Constitution, no State legisla
tion is valid or of any worth that con
flicts with tho Federal Constitution.
i-Ot Air. Donglas. while coacadiag that
this highest law of tho nation confers the
right of taking slaves into tho Territo
ries as property, affirms that tha squat
ters.in such, Territories have a right to
exclude or destroy such property ! t7in.
The California -correspondent of the

placo. They were not expecting any
such developments. Although knowing
that tho charge was true in point offset
that -Mr. Douglas did, when Btumping
for Congress with Judge Woodson in lo
44. call MrClay "A BLACK HEAR
TED TRAITOR," and indulged in
other epithets of equal vileness, yet they
expected quietly to Ho out of it. The
Register more than onco assumed to de
fend Mr. Douglas from the charge, which
it said was entirely false, and as it were,
to make its asseverations the stronger,
only a few days ogo it published a com
munication purporting to have been writ
ten in Oarrollton, in which the writer
went to the extent of "daring" the Ra
publicans "to produco their proof," even
asserting that "Judgo Woodson himself
had come out in a card declaring It to be
utterly false," and telling the editor if he
wanted the proof that it was "a lie," just
write to Judge Woodson.
Tbe Hon. D. M. Woodson, being thus
appealed to by tho Domocracy.ticM come
out under; his own name, and he tells a
tale which makes the Democracy blush
in shame for their leader. A Bell and
Everett elector, as ho is, and regretting,
as he says he does, to be mixed up in the
broils of the other parties, he yet em
phatically declares, in all candor, that
HE' DOES "RECOLLECT THAT
JUDGE DOUGLAS USED, DURING
THE CANVASS, SUBSTANTIALLY
THE LANGUAGE ATTRIBUTED
TO HIM ;" that "IT WAS HIS HAB
IT TO DENOUNCE MR. CLAY,"
ami that "HE DENOUNCED HIM
AS A TRAITOR TO HIS COUN
TRY," etc. Judge Woodson was "IM

years ago they passed a slave code by tho

complaints of the employed against too
