Lincoln and Seivard. Tlie Irrepres
sible C'ouflW t-
A PLEA KuR UNION.
The republican chief?, Lincoln and Se
ward, have both propounded the doctrine of
an '-irrepressible conflict'' letween the free
and glave States which innt end in inakiag
all freecr all slave. Tbe one utsered the
doctrine in lSof, in his memorable canvass
with Mr. DoroLA, the other, at a later peri
od, the fame year, at Rochester. Coming
from Lincoln, a local chief, wbo.re name had
never been thought of in connection with thv
Presidency, the dictriue did not arrcrt epe
cLtl attention. But when it was proclaimed
ly Seward, the conservative sentiment of the
whole country whs arou.-ed: in the North, to
a realization ot tie ultimate aims of republi
canism; and in the South, to a seu-e of tbe
dingers which the future would Lricg. unhs
the party whoe leaders held such doctrines
should Le overcome. The Iiscu;tioas which
the proclamation of LL brutal and bloody
doctriue provoked, alarmed the more timid
of the republican leaders, and had so much
trffect upon Seward himself, that he took the
evlicst opportunity, in the United States
Senate, to make a speech, in which Le sought
jesuitically to create the imprositi n that his
views 4had undergone some niouliicatimi.
Nevertheless, he had become so odious to the
opposition to republicanism, of all parties,
faat wheu the Chicago Convention as.-..nibltd
it was regarded as discreet to make some one
else the standard-bearer of the party. Lin
coln was chosen, and upon a platform which
apparently made some con jes.-ious to the tip
position sentiment, contrasted with the plat
form of 1S5G. For a time the supporter of
the Chicago nominee appeared to be injre
moderate in their views, and less inclined to
make aggressions upon the South: but, as
the canvass progresses, and success seems
probable, they are forgetting their cunning,
and the wicked and treasonable character of
their designs, begin once more to show tbeui
Belves. The Executive Committee of the par
ty at Washington have published, as cam
paign documents, the vindictive and iuceudi
ary speeches made in the last Congress by
Lovejot and Simner, whilst the A". J'. Tri
bune and othtr leading organs declare, tk:tt
the party will not have performed its mission
when it has prevented th farther cxteu.-iou
of slavery; that it has other objects in it
war upon slavery to accomplish.
These are significant indications. But
there are others still more siguiticaut. With
in the present month on the Stii inst. a re
publican demonstration was made at Spring
field, 111., the residence of Lincoln, and he
made a brief sjieoch on the occasion. In that
speech he said:
"I am profoundly grateful for this manifes
tation of your feeliugs. I am gratified because
it is a tribute which can b-3 paid to no man.
It is a testimony which, four years hencj,
you will pay to the next man who is the rep
resentative of the truth on the questions
which now agitate the public mind. It is an
evidence that you will tight for this cause
then, a-j yon now fight for it, and even strong
er than you now fight, thongh I may be dead
The N. Y. TFWJ, the most scrupulous of
a'.l the journals that prefer Linc oln, com
menting npn this extract, says '-The ques
tion will suggest iUelf to many minds
whether Mr. Lincoln really means that his J
administration is to leave this slavery ques
tion in such a po-Jtion as to require an vi-u
stronger fight against the South four years
hence than nowT In the face of the pro
fessed principles of both himsL-If a:ul his par
ty, he can have no such thought. The great
object for which the republican party has
contended hitherto, haa been to secure the
i err. tones lor tree labor. It was to Keep
slavery out ot Kansas that Colonel Fremont
was pressed with snch energy iti 1SJ6. And
it is to keep slavery out of all the Territories
that Mr. Lincoln baa been so strongly recoin
meuded !n 1G0. He has been nominated to
do that at Chicago, and he will be elected to
do that. Bat that done, what then? That is
the qaettion, and the future peace of the
"Union depends npou the answer which that
question receives. It Uiere u to he sonetldng
ulterior, if the Jeftnuce policy against slavery
extension is to be succeeded by an aggressive
policy ajuMtt tlarertf-conti nuance, the country
cannot too soon understand it." It mast be
this -something ulterior," this "aggressive
policy against slavery-continuance" the
"irrepressible conflict" which Lincoln had
in hu miui'a eye when be told his Springfield
supporter? they would fight four years
bence" even stronger than they fight now.
If he expects to accomplish anything by his
admiaifctratioa, and of course he does, be
could not refer to tbe isolated question of
keeping slavery out of the .Territories; but
to bomething requiring a fiercer and a
stronger fight. And he, doubtless, Intends,
after be has prevented slavery from getting
a loot-hold in tbe territories, to Initiate the
movement which the "next man" will be
cilltU upou to caiVy out. We accept us
Springfield speech, therefore, as an alarming
indication of his policy, and of the war that
is to be kepi up against slavery. '
We have still another indication, and one
which, coming from the greatest intellect and
most subtle leader of the party, the leader
who will be the "power behind the throne
greater than the throne iiself," is even more
note-wort by and alarming than the outgiv
ings of the nominee for the Presidency. Mr.
Skwakd has recently made the tour of tbe
Eastern States, and was frequently called
opon to tpcak. At Boston, on the 13th in-t.,
he made a speech in which, after Mating that
he had received hi-i inspiration from the Sage
of Qnincy. he said

it were not that some democrats I have heard
make strong claims upon the popular vote in
the State of New York. I have not olten
been mistaken, and 1 therefore venture to
correct these remarks of others by sayiug to
you what I said to the republicans of Maine,
wheu they told me it was moderate enough
to say that they have twenty thousand tnaj.r
ity for Lincoln and Hamlin, but that ttiey
had some uneasiness about the State of New
York that they might set down their major
ity iu .Maine at their own figure, and then
multiply it by four, and they would approxi
mate the majority in the State of New York.
But J have the same testimony to give you
substantially in relation to all the free States
together, with the assurance that, lor the lit,

Ihix ri' -'ory eowts the fnd the foirtr of flarrry
in the I'liiUd St ilus.
Here we have the whole game disclosed,
and Iy the Arch Fanatic himself. Lincoln,
we are told, confesses the obligation of "high
er law,"' and "avows himself, for weal or woe,
for life or death, a soldier on the side of free
dom iu the irrtpifsiUe conjHct between lree
dorn and slavery." HU election will "in
augurate this great policy into the govern
ment ot the United States;" and with "this
victory comes the end of the power of slavery
ia the United Siui'.-s." "
What do these indications portend ? Wiiat
are tbe Southern people to expect of Abra
ham Lincoln, elected with such views and
purpose.-! ? It is folly, it is madness, it is
almost ciiininal, to expect anything but con
stant and unrelenting hostility to slavery. If
t'ae Union survives his iuauguiution, it can
not survive an administration conducted with
tS soirit a:;d u:on the doctrines of the
"higher law" and "irrepressible conflict."
With the danger of the election of Lincoln
so imminent as to make Sicwaud exultant,
why will the people of the South hesitate as
to their duty t Why do they tot rally, as
one mu. around the standard of the Consti
tutional Union Party, and call upon the con
servative meu of the North to follow their
example, and thus email tLe monster of Re
publicanism ? Pride of consistency, party
prejudices, hatred of men, a desire to see the
Uuioa broken to atoms, may prevent party
leaders and conspirators against the govern
ment, from lending their aid to a union of
the whole South upon Cell and Everett,
but let the honest ma.-s..s act iud poadently,
and, forsaking all obligations but those they
owe to patriotism, stolid lor'.h for their coun
try. With the prospect of a united South to
cheer them, the national men of the North
could go on in the contest assured of victory.
The glorious revolution iu Kentucky inspires
us with the belief that the great masses of tin:
South will not prove recreant, that they
will, on the contrary, in November next, give
the sublimit exhibition of patriotism which
has occurred since the adoption f the Con
stitution. But. what will the newui of the South,
what the patriotism of her masses avail, un
less the North respond aud do her duty 1 In
the South, boast though Seward may that the
black banuer of republicanism will be un
furled iu safety iu many or the slaves states,"
Lincoln is entirely powerless. Under no
circumstances will he receive otic Southern
vote. The result, therefore, depends upon
the North. There the great battle is to be
fought. It there be not conservative, Union
loving men enough ia that section to arre.-t
the ouward sweep of republicanism, all will
le lost. Ia tbe nanio of the Constitution and
the Union, we call upon the conservative
elements of the North to come forth into the
field; concentrate your strength and precipi
tate it upon the lines of the enemy, pierce
his ranks, and break up his legious. The
issue is a most momentous one. The fate of
the Union is at stake it is in your hands.
Let this fact be your incentive to action let
it inspire your zeul and fire your courage.
Aud when you shall have triumphed, as tri
umph you must aud will, if you but strike as
men who know their "quarrel just," you will
reap the highest reward, the gratitude of a

. Nw York.' Aug. 1G, 18C0.
"When I left Nashville, I deter
mined to mix about with the people on every
train of cars I was aboard of, and from tbe
time I struck the Kentucky line I began to
eee the excitement. At every depot and sta
tion crowd ot people were gathered and
shouting over the glorious victory in our ew-
ter State. As I passed through Ohio and
Pennsylvania, I found upon every train a ma
jority for Bell and Everett; and upon but one
train during our whole trip to New York,
had Breckinridge a majority over Dooglas,
and that was between Nashville and Louis
ville, which vote stood, for Bell 62, Breckin
ridge 31, Douglas 26, and Lincoln 2. As I
came on I, of course, met friends of all tbe
candidates, particularly s I neared this city,
for I regret . say Mr. Lincoln has many
friends iu this locality. It is, however, grati
fying to me to be able to assure you that all
over this Northern country Mr. Bell is tbe
second choice of the Jriends of all the other
candidates. Since I have been in this city I
have talked with a great many business men,
and I find them all lor Mr. Bell, with here
aud there an exception. They say tbey are
willing to vote for any mau to defeat tbe
Black Republicans, and they can sec no
chance to do this and save the Union, unless
they concentrate upon and elect Mr. Bell,
aud they are going to work with that deter
mination anil with full confidence of success.
Tlie late elections in Missouri. North Caro
lina and Kentucky have inspired the people
iu the North with confidence, and the leaves
hardly fall faster from the trees after a biting
frost in autumn, than are the friends of Breck
inridge and Douglas deserting them and join
irg the great union of honest conservative
men, who are the only hope lor the perpetu
ity and glory of this great nation. I assure
you there is a great revolution going on iu
this section. Old men, whose fcilver locks
betoken that they are on the grave's brink,
who for years have taken no part in politics,
are going in droves to the political gather

shout for Bell and Everett. Old democrats

told by our old friend G. that iu three bouses

one for Bell and Everett except two. These

Recession that the Northern democracy met
the Southern democracy at Charleston and
Baltimore exacting a platform aud presenting
a candidate w holly distasteful to the South.
But when they are told that thj friend3 of
the Cincinnati platform, pure and simple, and
of Judge Douglas were in a majority in the
convention, they coolly reply that, while such
was the case in point of fact, that tbe majori
ty was representing States that could not be
relied upou to give a single electoral vote for
the nominee in other words, that the non
democratic States were endeavoring to force
upon them a platform and a candidate unac
ceptable to the democratic States. This an
swer tacitly admits that tbe party had no
strength in the Northern States, and that its
entire effective power lay in the Southern
and Pacific States. Yet these same men turn
aronud and sweep away this, their strongest,
arguuieut for their secession by contending
that their candidate stands a fair chance of
being elected by the support of Northern
States. While they were yet a united party
the chances were exceedingly slim to carry
any Northern State; but since they are divi
ded, the chances are increased for Breckin
kum;k, who espouses the platform of the
Southern extremists, to carry Northern States
enough to elect him! If anybody can pro
duce a greater absurdity than that, we have
a curiosity to see it. It is the most arrogaut
and shameless presumption upon popular ig
norance that we have ever seen. But the
people are not such poor fools as the Brcck
inridgers take them for.
A Falsehood Exposed.
hi his Memphis speech, Mr. Yancey read
an extract from a letter purporting to be
written to the Newark Advertiser by a corres
pondent at Terre Haute, Indiana, in which it
w as staled that "the Ilou. Emerson Etheridge,
of Teunessee, on his return from Washington,
was the guest of Col. Thompson, of Terre
Haute, for a few days, aud when in the city
was serenaded by his political friends, when
be mad : a speech aud exhorted them to cast
aside all ideas of supporting a Bell ticket in
Indiana, and give their united suppott to Lin
coln. He advised them that all the efforts of
tho uuited Opposition should be directed to
the overthrow of the Democratic party, which
ould only be done by defeating their caudi.
dales iu s many States as possible. He said
if he lived in Indiana he would vote for Lin
coln, but as he lived in a State where his own
ticket had a chance, he would vote for Bell.7'
Mr. Etheridge made a speech at Browns
ville last Saturday, and teok occasion to
brand this statement as a "sheer fabrication."
It appears that there was not tbe least found
ation for it. We give below from the Mem
phis Enquirer his notice of the falsehood:
Mr. Etheridge said that the remarks attrib
uted to him at Terre Haute were a sheer fab
rication, as, in the first place, he made no
speech there before any political gathering,
and secondly, in what he did say, when ad
dressing a party which serenaded him, he
never alluded to Lincoln or tbe Republican
party. He said that he left Washington in
June with his little daughter, and traveled
uight and day nntil he reached Terre Haute,
on his way home, where a friend insisted that
he should accept the hospitalities of his man
sion, and give his daughter that rest which
she nesded. lie did so, and while there was
announced to speak at a public meeting, but
positively declined. Late in the evening,
without any uoiioe, a party serenaded him,
and called tor him until he was compelled by
courtesy to notice their presence, which he
did by thanking them for their visit, advis
ing theui to do their best for the election of
Mr. Bell as the only truly national caudidate,
aud concluded his five minutes' speech by
some caustic allusions to the Democratic par
ty and Mr.Buchanau; never once mentioning
Lincoln or the Republican party. While in
Terre Haute, he was visited by a stranger,
who asked him whether he did not think it
would be advisable to run a Bell aud Everett
ticket, in order to beat the Black Republi
cans; 'to which be replied that if the gentle
man's only desire was to accomplish that pur
pose, he thought the better way would be to
vole directly tor the Democratic nominees.
From this individual, no doubt, tbe falsehood
emanated, and his interrogatory was merely
intended as a trap to catch Mr. Etheridge. He
said the race in Indiaua is between Douglas
aud Lincoln, and that he has no doubt tbe
Breckinridge men there will support Lincoln,
with the view of defeating Douglas, ir possi

-Editor Palr'vJ: Supposing yoa are desir
ous to hear - from tbe different parts of the
State as to political demonstrations, I have
concluded to write. On Monday last, Col.
Temple and Mr. Thomas, addressed the peo
ple at this place. There was qaite a large
crowd in attendance. Temple is an excellent
debater and gave general satisfaction to bis
party; be is a much better speaker tban
Thomas, and throughout tbe debate it was
evident that, the, political friends of, Mr
Thomas were disappointed. , I heard one de
termined Breckinridge Democrat, after the
speaking was over, say that .bis ' party did
not have a fair chance; that if they had a.
speaker of equal ability to Temple, that
quite a different impression would have been
made. ' " - ' : " ' i
Mr. Jones, of this county, has accepted the
position of elector on the Douglas titktt.
Thomas refuses to divide time with Mr. Jones,
and continues that Jones has no right to be
heard at the appointment made by Temple
and Thomas. Temple had no objection to
Jones speaking. Mr. Jonts and bis friends
are much displeased at the course of Mr.
Thomas. On yesterday, at Uilham, ia this
county, Jones made a speech of an hour, af
ter the other two had concluded their debate.
To-day, at Monroe, Mr. Jones spoke first, and
was beard by a large and attentive crowd
for hours. The Douglas men in this coun
ty are viry determined in tbeir course and
will never yield. You mr.y rely upon Bell
making a considerable gain in this county.
Douglas will get about 250 votes.

the next four years, and place in the "White

Statesman and Patriot, who knows "No

ing but his Country !" We have not a doubt
that there are thousands of honest, sober
miuded, conservative Republicans who, af
frighted now at the reiterated ultraisms of
Mr. Seward and his friends, will help us to
ring the Bell and as for the Democrats,
there being but really one great question
now at issue, in this campaign, the question,
namely, of Union or Disunion, (for after all.
that is the point,) there is nothing to keep
them back from coming over, en masse, in
support of tue Union, the Constitution,
and the Enforcement of tue Laws. Day
light is breaking! and with a grand combi
nation of the National elements, not for men,
but for principles, iu New York, let oar
friends in other Stales rely upon it, that Lin
colnism here is fore-doomed to defeat. That
conviction should quicken their patriotism,
and stimulate them to renewed energy, so
that when November come3, it can be said,
with as much truth as ever, "as goes New
York, so goes the Union."
Tbe Breckinridge organs and orators
have generally abandoned tbe idea that their
candidates were nominated by a regular dem
ocratic National Convention. They now in
sist that neither Douglas nor Breckinridge
was nomiuated by a regular Democratic Na
tional Convention, and are calling lustily on
the rank and file of the former party to
ratify the action of the seceding delegates.
In making this admission tbey affirm that
the party is disorganized and brokeu up
aud that no democrat is bound by his party
relations or party loyalty to vote the Breck
inridge ticket. Whoever does it, does it
upon his choice, irrespective of previous
party obligations or patty usages. As an
independent proposition, then, what conser
vative friend of the Union will vote lo-Mr.
Breckinridge, surrounded, as he is by dis
unionists, and espousing as he does the doc

The Paraguay Claims. It is finally an
nounced that Mr. Cave Johnson, the Com
missioner appointed to examine the claims

against the Government of Paraguay, has
decided adversely to the claimants, to their
infinite disgust and the chagrin of the Pres
ident. We have little doubt of the substan
tial justice of Mr. Johnson's decision, al
though it is understood that the Commis
sioner of Paraguay some time since offered
the American claimants a compromise, which
would probably have covered their actual
losses in the business for the destruction of
which they sought to hold the Government
of Lopez responsible. But we can quite
comprehend the President's distress at the
result to which his too faithful Commissioner
has come. The Paraguayan expedition has
been the pet adventure of Old Public
Functionary. To this had dwindled down
by degrees all the splendid programme of
Ostend, all the brilliant visions of a magnifi
cent foreign policy which attended his ad

Suaker Plan of Making Soap. The trus
tees of Shaker Village, H. H., gives to tbe
Scientific American the following easy and
cheap method of making soft soap : ;
"Place a shallow iron kettle, to hold from
four to six barrels just out of tbe wash-room,
under cover of a shed. Extend half or three
quarters inch pipe for steam to the middle
ol tbe bottom, bending it to form of surface,
and terminating with open end. Take an-
oiker pipe to aiscuarge coia water over ine
top of the kettle.. .. Use the test quality of
'first sorts' of potash in the proportion - of six
pounds of potash to seven pounds of grease
tor a barrel f forty gallons. Breau up the
potash into small lumps and dissolve it iu,
say. two pails of hot .water to . twenty-tour
pounds. It dissolves ratberslowly when the
potash is good. When dissolved, put the
solution into the kettle, and add the grease
quite warm, and stir the mixture together.
Allow it to stand over night if convenient.
In the morningsupply a moderate jet of steam
until the aixtme appears ropy, or rathtr,
soapy. Shut off the steam and open the cold
water valve, stirring the mixture as the wa
ter runs, until the kettle i3 full, or the re
quired quaatity - obtained for- the materials
iised I Myman,- makes ai excellent article
and never fails. The materials for
forty gallons of soap cost,, at. present prices,
sixty-four cents; the labor nothing, as the
man is not hindered by making itJ'- -q. .

years ago seemed as familiar to him as those he visited
but yesterday, and their inmates dilTer littlij from tho
men and women with whom he associates daily. Tho
pictures of humble life are graphic aud refreshing. In
no other work from the authors pen can there be found
greater variety of incident, more artistic delcueation
of character, more earnestness of thought and vigor of
discription. and certainly no other contains a jlot to
striking in canceplion and to ably managed.
