ee, they are doing the work lu-'dy and
thoroughly. We yesterday received several
private letters of the most hopeful mid en
couraging character. From Kogtrsville, in
the East, on tbe 11th, a correspondent assures
us that "our cause is gaining ground daily.
The election ne-.vs fall like a wet Llankrt on
the hopes of the Breckinridgers. There i a
smart sprinkle of Douglasites in this section,
and would be more if they had a bold leader.

are producing a wonderful effect. They are
as yet unanswered and unanswerable."
Another from Yorkville, Gibson county, in

shown that Douoras has no chance, they will
go or Beix as the only way to save the
Union from the disur.ionists and sectional
ists." We conversed yesterday with an intelligent
Loui.-itiiiiaii, who expressed the most confi
dent belief that that State would go for the
Union ticket without doubt. A correspond
ent from Montgomery, Alabama, says: '-Our
electors are doing gallant service, and if the

ffinnirv' P.iit the pravp Questions which
etcw out of the existence of slavery were al
iravs mrt with that wisdom and patriotism
which were re(';isite for their adjustrjent and
solution. The Constitution itself was t!ie
l.tnh c.t a KTiiiit of c-enen us coiicession and
mananimons compromise: and in a I ke
spirit the country was long governed. One

admission of Calif--mia: but both were hap
pily pissed, and in loth cas-?. after some
moment. of anxious suspense, the coals of
strife were onenched. and harmony was res
stored. At the adjournment of Congress in ISoO
the country was at p ace. There was no
portion of the territory ot the United States
w hich bad not its condition fixed ty positive,
and. as was supposed, irrcpealble law. The
anti-slavery agitation had been mainly con
fined to a'f w over-zealous persons in cer
tain localities. It Lad excited a di-turbing
force in th" politics of some of the States: i:
had sent some ardent partisans to the Nation
al Legislature, but it had no marked influ
ence upon the politics of the nation. No bet
ter proof can be adduced in support of the
position than the fact that at the Presidential
election in mo auiumu oi aii. uai
the candidate of the tree-soil party, re
ceived but 1.P.12 vote to Mr. Pierce's
1.536,3M, and G n. Scott's l:393,0i9.
REPEAL OK THE MISSOURI COVIPP.oMISE.
But this auspicious calm was disturbed,
and all the winds ol sectional striie were let
loos? by events occurring between the Presi
dential il.cti iu of 1802 anl th.it of lSjO.
Prominent among these were the untoward
abrogation of the Mi.-souri compromise iu
18" J. tie : c:s of violence which cecum d in
Kansas, and the persistent etlbi ts ot the Fed
eral Administration to f::rce that Territory in
the Union. S j great was the effect produced
by these causes that instead of Mr. Hale's
meagre vote ol 15S.123, Col. Fremont, the
Republic :n candidate, had 1,341, oil to Mr.
Buchanan's 1.838,232, and Mr. Fillmore":
874.707. Sir.ce that time the Republican
pony has maintained its imposing character,
and "now presents as lormi'iab'.e a front be
fore the country as ever it did.
REPEAL Of THE COMPROMISE A DEMOCRATS
eat p:;":is have b 'en tak".i in the Norlh
:t:ites by Republican speakers to rcpre-
sent iho disturbance ot the Mis-ouri com
promise as a Ho ith'Tii iiva!i!v. and one of
the a:ts ol what they are wont to call the
-lave poaer; but such speakers show more
party zeiil than love of truth. The feeling
in regard to th.'t compromise was substan
tially ih.' .sjiii-j in both section ol the coun
try. Eieii conceive! that it had yielded
soiu 'thiu i f constitutional right, but both
acfuie.secd iu the result as a ineasuie of heal
ing and peace. Its repeal look tho North and
South alike? by surprise: not a petition to
that efti-el was pie-ented from any Southern
S ate, and the h;;n 1 that set this disastrous
bill in motion was the hind of a Noil hern
S .-aator. Thi: ty-stveu Senators voted with
him. mid thirteen against him, and of these
fourteen were lro.il the Noi thei n States; had
these fourte.-u io ed the other way, the com
promise would n jt have been disturbed. The
measure was a D-mocratic measure, and the
leaders of ihe Democratic party are alone re
sponsible for it aid for its consequences.
Tiiey having sown the wind, are now reaping
tue whirlwind. Ihe rein but. on which has
fallen upon their once powerful organization
can awaken no sympathy, for it i no more
than this rignteous penalty exacud from
those who break the law of right. Their
party is now cleft in twain, and h: two di
vided portions turn towards each other a
countenance of "irrepressible conflict"' and
unextuiguishable anunjsity. There are no
quarrel. like family quarrels, and there is no
hatred like the hatred that on;c was love.
MR. DOUGLAS AXl MS. ERECKIXKILGE.
Mr. Douglas, representing the principle or
rather the policy (tor we deny it the name of
principle) of popular sovereignty, is strong
at the North. Mr. Breckinridge represent
ing the doctrine of national intervention in
behalf of slavery, and identified with the
present Administration, is strong at the
South. Mr. Douglas will probably command
a larger popular vote than Mr. Breckinridge,
but be certainly cannot carry a single Sou
thern State, and, unaided by other parlies,
his success in any Northern State is question
able. Jt is doubtlui whether Mr. Breckin
ridge cau obtain the vote of more than one
Southern State, and he cannot hope to carry
a single one in the North.
The election of either Mr. Breckiuridge or
Mr. Douglas we should regard as a serious
misfortune to the couutry. Except upon the
particular point on which they are at issue,
we may presume that tbe course of their
Administrations would be snbstantially the
same. The election of either would continue
those abuses and corruptions which have
tlo::e so much to demoralize our people,
which have brought our institutions into such
undeserved distrust abroad, and against
which the unperverted conscience of the
whole country so energetically protests.
XO CHANCE FOR DOUOIAS OR nRECKtXRUXIE .
But we deem it unnecessary to speculate
upon the consequences of an event which can
never take place. The election of either Mr.
Douglas or Mr. Breckinridge is simp!y an
impossibility, aud the Democratic party
North and South may as well look this fact
steadily in the face to-day nJ hereafter, for to
this conclusion they must come at last. A
political house divided ogeinst itself cannot
stand. Evetymanin the country of sound
mind, whose wish is not father to Lis thought,
must be convinced that neither of tbe Dem
ocratic candidates can be chosen by a popular
vote. ' .
TUE r.El'lHLICAN l'AUTV A SECTIONAL PAKTY.
Before tho people of Ihe United States the
contest is between Mr. Bell and Mr. Lincoln;
aud, assuming this as a fixed fact, we proceed
to state some of the reasons which should in
duce all well wishers of their country to vote
for tbe former rather than the latter. These
reasons apply with iqual force to the North
ami uio boutu.
The great, the obvious, the insuperable ob
jection to Mr. Lincoln's claims is founded
upon the fact that he is a r-cctional candidate,
aud that the Republican parly is a sectional
party. In filteen out of the thirty-three
States which compose our Union the Repub
lican party has no substantial existence, aud
should Mr. Lincoln be chosen, his Adminis
tration could have no Southern support, but
only Southern opposition. We are well
aware how energetically tbe Republican par
ty disclaims all designs hostile to the consti
tutional rights of th ! South. We believe
that many of its members are sincere in these
disclaimers. Tue distrust awakened through
out tbe South by tbe existence and attitude
of the Republican party may be a ground
less distrust . : - -
That the Republican patry ts honestly be
lieved throughout the whole South to be a
sectional party, aod, as such, is viewed with
uncompromising hostility, is enough for tho ,
purpose of oar argument If they have
earned sach a reputation without deserving
it, it is a misfortune, to tbe consequence of
which they must submit. Bat surely they
have not earned it without cause. To say
nothing of the atrocious and unwarrantable
language which their most popular speakers
are in tbe habit of using; to say nothing ot
the fact that many of their campaign docu
ments are m. re abolition harangues, made up
of the foulest and fiercest abuse of the entire
South ; the unconstitutional statutes which
somt; of the Northern States have passed
against the t-xecutiou of the fugitive elave
I aw. are in direct opposition to the profes
sions, of the party, and justify the distrust
which theoulii entertain of them.
We do not say that th- eleciion of Mr.Lincoln
would be fatal to the Union. We are no dis
ouonisls, and nodisnnionist has a right lo be
a mein'er of the Constitutional Union party.
Under any possible combination of circum
stances we cannot conceive of,a dissolution of
the Union as any thing but tbe greatest of ca
lamities. Come what will, we shall stand by
the L'nion as the most precious jewel of our
soals; bat, knowing the proud and sensitive
spirit or the Southern people, we do say that
tho election of Mr. Lincoln would expose the
Union to a peril to which no trne patriot
should wish to see it exposed. And, further,
we do say that the attempt to govern the
country upon the distinctive aDd peculiar
principles of the Republican party would be
fatal to tbe Union. In other words, the at
tempt on the part of the National Govern
ment, by positive law, to exclndc slavery
from such portion of the national domain as
would become slave territory but for such ex
clusion would, in our opinion, break up tbe
Union. And tbe converse of the proposi
tion is rqually trne: any attempt on the part
of the National Government to locce slavery,
by positive law, into such portion of tbe na
tional domain as would become free territory
but tor such in'ervention would alsa break
up the Union.
The calm and dispassionate observer can
see in tbe Republican movement only a com
bination of the Northern States to take the
Government of the whole country into their
hands, and to administer it with reference to
an exclusively Northern policy; and, in like
manner, the supporters of Mr. Breckinridge
propose to take the Government of the whole
country into their hands, with a view of ad
ministering it with reference to an exclusive
ly Southern policy. In either case tbe result
would be a diversion of the General Govern
ment from its legitimate sphere, or ratber an
assumption of powers on the part of tbe
funeral Government not delegatea to it,
which one half of the Confederacy would re
gard a a usurpation, and to wbicn it would
refuse to submit. The fact that our Union is
composed in part of slaveholding States, and
in part of non-slavebolding States, imposes
crave duties upon both sections duties of
forbearance, concession, and conciliation; re
spect fr each other's convictions; tenderness
in hanUIiug eacn oiacr s sensitive punne, m
short, such rules of self-control and sclt-gov
eminent as re-rulate in social life and in the
relations of business, the intercourse of gen
tlemen who may chance to diner widely on
the cravest questions. To these duties we
!,IJ fain recall both the North and the
South. The Uniou is a blessing, the contin
nanoe of which imposes some sacrifices on
both portions of the country. Neither pro-
slavery zjalots nor anti-slavery zealots can
use the powers of the General Government
for the advancement of their own peculiar
views, however honestly entertained.
SLAVERY AND ANTI-SLAVERY AGITATION'
It isj a necessary consequence of the un
happr fact that our political contests have
become mere struggles for the possession of
nower between the North and the South, that
our political discussions have become little
else than mutual criminations and recrimina
tions. The people no longer listen to argu
ments addressed to their reason, in defence
ot particular measures, or a certain course of
policy, out in excuinjj; appeals iu euear euc-
tioual pr jnelices, which only heat the blood
and inflame the passions. Ihe rs'ortn is
taught to bate the South, and the South is
taught to hate the North. On both sides lan
guage is used w hich is studiously selected for
its galling and exasperating qualities. There
Is i.o u c gui'.iou ot tbe law of charity which
suffeis long aud is kind; there is no admis
sion of the tremendous difficulties which eu-
Tiron the whole subject of slavery; Northern
speakers denounce the South for maintaining
tho system, and yet they are unable to sug
gest any scheme tor getting rid ot it; boutn
em speakers make no distinction between the
rankest abolitionism and that abstract oppo
sition to slavery iu itself which is an almost
universal sentiment at the North. And out
of the immense mass of speeches on the sub
ject of slavery which have been inflicted upon
the country, in Congress aud out ot it, not
one hint or suirirestiou can lie gathered of tbe
least practical value towards a solution of
the problem of slavery, or even a mitigation
Ot its assumed evils.
The consequences of this miserable agita
tion have been of tbe most melancholy kind.
The attachment which formerly united the
North and the South is fast disappearing, and
estrangement, alienation, and ill-wijl arc ta
king its place. The two sections of the
country aie learning to look upoucach other
as natural enemies. This state of feeling
renders it impossible for the National Legis
lature to Legislate calmly, judiciously, dis-
pationately lor the common good ot the
whole country. Congressional debates have
degenerated into mutual vituperations and
denunciations, and are disgraced by the most
offensive personalities. All propositions are
judged if not by their essential expediency,
out oy the quarter irom wnicu iney come.
Oi what use is it then, for the Kepublican
party to snred forth in their platform an
elaborate airay ot measures and principles
to long as a sectional divisiei exists in our
politics which makes one-halt of the country
look with suspicion and distrust upon every
movement of the other?
Nor is this all. The lendeacy of this sec
tional excitement is to repel wise aud good
men from tbe sphere of politics, and thus to
lower the tone of Government. Men en
dowed with statesmonlike powers will not
take part in an agitation which dwarfs tbe
understanding while it inflames the passions.
The conseepience is, that, while we are rapid
ly increasing in wealth aud all the indica
tions of material civilization, and surely not
declining in virtue and intelligence, the se
ries of our public men marks a descending
scale, and the standard of Congressional de
bate is constantly lowering. Intelligent for
eigners who come among us are pnzzlcd to
account for the singular tact that so few men
of superior ability are taking part in the
Government of the country. Indeed, the
virtue aud intelligence of the country are
fast ebbing away from the sphere of politics,
aud its vices and passions are usurping their
THE AeilfATION UNNECESSARY.
The pro-slavcry.aud anti-3lavery agitation
which has been to lotig convulsing the couu
try is as unnecessary as it is mischievous.
The more conservative portion of the Repub
lican party have tacitly abquiesced in the
fugitive slave law, in the existence of slavery
in the Uistnct ot Columbia, and in the right
to carry slaves from one State to another; and
they Lave always disclaimed any right or
any intention, to interfere wiih slavery in the
Territories, and the power of Congress over
it there, are the ouly points they leave for
discussion and difference. If government be
a practical art, as surely it is; if the object
of government be, not to ennnnciate princi
ples, out to provide lor each emergency as it
arises, all this excitement, aud all this con-
lhct.are utterly purposeless and idle. We have
beeu familliar with slavery long enough to
know by what laws it is regulated and con
trolled. Experience aud observation have
shownthat slavery is dependent upon
con'iivts 'H and climate, and lies I
yond the fwf u of political combinations.
'Ihese will not force slavery, into rezions
where it is not profitable, nor will they ex
clude it from legions where it is profit
able. At this moment no one will
question the correctness of the state
ment Ibat there is not a foot of the ter
ritory of the Uuited States the condition of
which in reference to slavery is not already
fix i-d by law; and b. re is no place wthin the
Federal domain upon which tbe abstract
theories of the extremists of either section in
regurd to the exclusion of elaveiy from the
Territories, or its introduction into them,
can be practically applied. The whole ques
tion of hlavery iu the Territories, as now pre
sented, is. an abstraction, pure and sim
ple, incapable of practical application,
and prolitic of serious mischief. It has al
ready produced sectional alienation, and now
inenanccs the integrity of the Uuion. -REPUBLICANS
RESPONSIBLE FOB THIS AGtTA-
To cre-.itc and maintain tbia unhappy ttgi-
tation, iSortb &d1 South, Democrats and Kc
pablieans we need not stop to inquire in
what proportions have both contributed in
tunes past; .but ut this moment tho Kepubli

tina tncc.l The great obieet-wbicb they pro-
poeel to accomplish wa tbe admission of j
Kansas as a tree btate. This was the excuse
and justification for the formation of a pare
ly sectional organization. This element gave
them their great ttrenzth in 1856. ; It was
for this that many moderate and conservative
men in tne Northern and Middle States gar a
them their votes at that time. I5nt that ob
ject is oow accomplished. No one donbts
that Kansas Is to be admitted as free State.
The Democrats have lost the stake for wbicb
they played so desperate a game.
What need, Ibeo, is there for the further
continuance of sectional agitation, and for
keeping it up by a mischievous sestiooai or
ganization? What immediate end do they
propose to accomplish? What tangible ob
ject have they in view? They have- not now
that moral element which gave them strength
in 1856. They can now take no higher atti-tud-
than that of a combination of ambitious
aspirants and greedy orfiee-scckerW who, hav

panting for the more splendid prizes pf si na

QUALIFICATIONS OF MR. LINCOLN.
So far as the claims and qualifications of
candidates are concerned, we surely need
not shrink from comparison with the Repub
lican party. For the first time in the history
of the country a great party has nominated
for the Presidency a man unknown, even by
name, to a majority of the people.' Mr. Lin
coln, we admit, is a respectable man, a re
spectable lawyer, and as a popular speaker
of probably more than average ability; but
what a meagre catalogue is this of claims
for the highest office! Nothing whatever is
known of his executive or administrative
capacity; nothing of his views as to the great
questions of foreign and domestic policy
which are likely to arise in the conduct of
the Government; nothing as to his knowledge
of the great interests tnd relations of the
lie served but a single term in the
House of Representatives, and there earned
no conspicuous distinction. His nomination
was extorted from the Chicago Convention
by the force of local pressure.aud presents the
most glaring example of the pi til ul doctrine
of availability that tbe political annals of
this country have ever shown. His claims
for the office of President of the United
States rest upon tbe fact that, in a popular
contest before the people of Illinois with Mr.
Douglas, be sustained himself with energy
and fair abilit-. Nor need we do more than
advert to the fact, which is another illustra
tion of the sectional character of the Repub
lican organization, that their candidate for
the Presidency is taken from the extreme
northwest, and their candidate for the Yice
Presidency is taken from the extreme north
east. What means can they have for know
ing or ascertaining Vie qualifications of per
sons to fill the Federal olfices in the Southern
MR. "ELL AND MR. EVERETT.
The candidates presented by tbe Constitu
tional Union party have every possible claim
upon the confidence and support of tbe
American people. There is little need of set
ting forth these claims in detail and by par
ticulars, for to suppose any one ignorant of
the merits and services of John Bell and Ed
ward Everett is to suppose him ignorant of
the history of the country during the last
thirty years. Both have been distinguished
and influential members of both branches of
Congress. Mr. Bell bas been Speaker of tbe
House of Representattives and Secretary of
War. Mr. lverett tjas been governor or .Mas
sachusetts, Minister to Great Britain, Secre
tary of State. Both are men of great political
experience, and both have proved their fitness
for the highest trusts. Both arc animated by
the spirit of a generous and comprehensive
patriotism. Of all Southern statesmen, none
is more popular at the North than Mr. Bell;
of all Northern statesman, none is more en
deared to tbe people of the South than Mr.
So commanding, indeed, is tbe merit of
both our candida-.es, that it is fully and freely
conceded by all our opponents. Kepub
licans, supporters of Mr. Douglas and
supporters of Mr. Breckinridge, all admit
that while they prefer others, the interests
of the country would be entirely safe in the
hands of Mr. Bell and Mr. Everett. All would
acquiesce in tbe election of our candidates.
Indeed, the argument most generally and
most persistently presseel against them is,
that they cannot be elected, no need not
say how grave a charge against the intelli
gence and integrity of our people is Involved
in this declaration, and that every man who
resolves to vole for them, be the result what
it may does something to lesson the weight
of this objection. Let us have the vote of
every man in the country who sincerely be
lieves that ours is the best ticket, and we ask
DUTIES OK THE PEOPLE. .
Such fellow-citizens, are a few of the most
obvious arguments iu behalf of the candi
dates of the Constitutional Union party. We
cannot disguise it from you that we look for
ward to the future with grave anxiety. This
is natural, when we consid-T the excitability
of the American people, and t lie lntlamma-
torycharacterof the political issues which now
divide them. Surely, great dangers lie in the
path on which we are moving. Our appeal is
to the patriotism, tbe wisdom, tbe reaosn and
conscien.'-e of tue country to leave these pen
lous edges of sectional strife, and thus avoid
these dangers. We would fain recall the
American people to a fresh sense ot the af
fectionate and iraternat wisdom, wnicu
breathes through the Farewell Address of the
Father of his Country. -
There arc men now living who, when Ibis
address first appeared, were of an age to com
prehend its spirit, and to be touched by its
counsels. bat a change nave tnev lived to
witness in tbe sentiments entertained towards
each other by the alienated sections of our
once united country I And bow do our al
tered hearts and averted countenances vindi
cate the prophetic sagacity of Washington ?
We readily admit that there have been grave
faults on botn sides. L,et us not employ our
selves iu the ungracious office of comparing
offences and weighing provocations, but let
us open wide tbe arms of leconciuation, and
cease to use tbe language of reproach. The
blessing promised to tbe pence makers shall
rest upon all who address themselves to this
benebcent work. He wisn to preserve the
Union, and transmit it to our children; and
a Union animated by tbe lile-blood of a pa
ternal spirit, without wbich it is a shadow
and not a substance.
Let us revive iu the hearts of our country
men the prophetic declaration of tbe patriot
Clay, in bis memorable speech before the
Kentucky Legislature, when be was called,
in 1S50, to breathe out bis life in the last
grand effort to give peace to a distracted
" 1 may be asked, as l have been asked,
when would I consent to a dissolution of the
Union. I answer. Never! Never ! Never !
If the agitation in regard to the
fugitive slave law should contiuue and in
crease, and become alarming, it will lead to
the formation ot two new parties one for
the Union, and tbe other against the Union ;
' - - and me piaiiorni ot mat union
party will be the Union, the Constitution,
and the Enforcement of the Laws. Aud if
if it should be necessary to form such a party.
and it should be accordingly formed, an
nounce myself in this place a viemJter of tliat party,
whatever nay be us component elements."
The time so elcquently and graphically
predicted has arrived. That Union party is
now organized. It appeals to the couutry
tnen of Washington and Clay for their sup
port. It entreats them to. gather in ferried
phalanx around tbe Union and Constitution,
and defend them from tbe fierce assaults of
sectionalism, whoncesoevcr they may come ;
ana, by me election or our national and pat
riotic candidates, to preserve for our sous the
glonoue beritage bequeathed us by our sires,
so that it shall remain the boast of American
citizens that they have "one country, one
Constitution, and one destiny.'? - -1- - - - .

North Carolina--A correspondent of tbe
Richmond Enquirer, dating from Raleigh, N.
C., Aug. 8. says: ?
"I beg leave to inform you that this morn
ing, in the Comptroller's office,- the official
vole was cast up lrom all tne counties ex
cept three small ones, which, will give slight
Opposition gains, -with loltowinz results:
Say Ellis' majority 5,900, (subject to a re
duction on account of three counties to hear
from, of 400.) leaving absolute . majority
$,500. On joint ballot, Democrats have 26,
exclusive ot Bledsoe, Senator from Wake,
who claims to be a democrat, bnt received
1,600 Opposition rotes, out of 1,613." -
Something; More about Senator Hie
i Welle jv :
' Columbia, Aug. 11, 18C0.
To the Editor of the Daily Patriot:
- Gentlemen: In the last Herald, published
la this place, appears ' the card of Senator
McNeflev. with the following nrefkee frr.m f ha
editor: "Onr recollection coincides exactly
with" Col. McNeileyV stitemenf, word for"
word." It is remarkably strange that the ed
itor of the Herald, if that was his recollec
tion, did not. in his next issue, state that the'
author of the communication in the Pnss
must be in error; but he did not so much as
notice it.'.Though MoN. said that I have "not
brains enough to grease a'glmblet," I, how
ever, claim .to. Lavj(at least tbe smallest
amount allowed to a man, viz: three grains;
and with that amount, I nor any other man
would have excepted lo Mr. McN's. language
as he explains it in his card; nor could I have
gathered the language which I attributed to
him if he used the language which he says he
used, unless I wished to wilfully misrepresent
him; and tbe Union and American, in its issue
of the 11th inst., says they know me 'to be
above a deliberate misrepresentation.''
Now to the evidence: After the speaking
was over, I drove to the residence of Mr. I
E. Church, and while there the conversation
turned upon Mr. McN's.specch. I said in the
course of the conversation, that I had the
words of Mr. McN. noted down, and intended
to report them to the Maury Press. Several
gentlemen then called upon me to read the
notes, which I did. Instead of the word
"grease," I had "contained." Mr.Seth God win
win and Mr. Godwin, both Breckinridge Dem
ocrats, suggested that I was in error about
the wordx' contained.' I thereupon made
tbe correction, read it to them, and they both
pronouueed it correct. This was immediate
ly after the speech, while it was yet fresh
upon their memo-ies. So it appears in the
exact words of Breckinridge Democrats.
There are-also two other gentlemen, one a
Bell man and tbe other a Breckinridge man,
who say that I have reported Mr. McN's.
words correctly. To the words, "If there is
one in the crowd, I do not know, it, bat if
there i3, I have no hesitancy iu saying that
you will find him to be a man," I am willing
to testify positively.
What Mr, McN. said is one thing; w hat be
meant is another. I am willing to grant him
tbe benefit of bis explanation as to his mean
ing, but not as to what he said.
I am in hopes that I will not be forced to
appear again in this matter; if I am, I shall
be compelled, in justice to myself, to show
up a gentleman's private conversation, who
wishes it suppressed, and present a host of
other evidence. ; . -
