A German View of American "Democracy."

Mr. Charles llcinzcn, now K litor of a weekly

Shivery a lending article, of its platlorm this
lad ha iu my eyes something no horrible
mid saddening, that it would be lolly to cher
ish any further faith in Immunity, were it not
n crime against reason to doubt it. But 1
anticipate. Permit me tu cast n glance into
the past. Slavery, a you know, i as old a
the human race. Tho first slave wa weak
wouiuii, nml she doubtless will be the hist.
Among savages, to this day, the wile is Ihe
leeogui.cd slave of the, husband, ho regard
her iu the light of a mere domestic nuiuial.
Tho slavery of men began with war, mid in
the history of war u trade nt murder it
certainly is n iiiuik of progress. For origi
nally the tide was, tu put all to tho sword, to
liriko no piisoners. At a later period it was
discovered that the victor could employ the
vuuqui.-du d to hie personal advantage, it he
grunted llieiu liliyiuil f,om that time he made
theui slave. Tins oiL'iu of Slavery, as it
existed among the Creek uml Koinmi, also
mdeed mining tho aiici.mt tiermaiis, had nt
I''"1 " up pea ranee of right iu it favor. For.
l-'riml the rihl in man tu put an enemy to
death, uml it lollow that Ihe voluntary spur
mg ol lilu hy thu victor may be viewed a a
rightful mean of obtaining n property in him
who was spared. Later still, tliu progiess of
mankind opened another uml u civilized
method of obtaining tin l ight ot properly.
Warriors becumu simply rolilier, who stole
pcacelul men who had done Ilium no injmy,
mid brought them to the trader, whom they
hud injured (till less. The trudcr examined
not the r'fht of the mnn-stenler, he examined
his wre hi two legged entile he loimd
them worth the price he paid the price mid
claimed who will dare dispute the title? a
human Iwing na his, nml tought, neither iu
the riiihtsnl love nor jwreiituge, n foundation
for the claim.
Thu have we renrhed the prosaic ground
of North American Slate Rilil "Southern
Bights" nud Northern Democracy." The
ancestors of Ihe Democrats purchased their
iiroMsrty in human heings honestly nud
liotiornbly purchased it purchased it gen
tlemen mid citizen, with no protest from
owner or advocate with reedy money in

lows of Nature and the conunmid of Scrip
ture fi.r this humnii property hu this excel
lence, tlmt it without etliut on the ptirt of
the owner doe not remain n dead capital,
hut interest by it own action ; so, that pro
perty bore young property, nud the young
properly again yuungcr, down to the present
(jctitleninn, you nre no Communists, nml
know that property is sacred. And if pro
perty in thing i sacred, how much more so
must he that in man 1 Tin is the basis of
North American Democracy, end thu Con
stitution stand upon the same side. For
there i not n word in the Constitution which
decline that stealing men and trailing in
men me crimes; and that which is lint for
bidden by thi! Constitution, nccording to the
platliiru. of thu Democratic Convention ut
llaltiinon i left to the several Slate ; so
that we, il we should pickle negro flesh, uml
make sausage of m-grii children, would in
no respect net micoiisiiiiitioually. I chal
lenge Jou, gentlemen, to show me n sinulu
paragraph in tho Constitution which lie bids
any good Democrat the ptivih'gc ol slaught
ering, ronsliiig mid pickling the negroes.
No doubt some will say that North Amer
ica emancipated herself n few dozen J ear
too soon from liughuul, or otherwise she
would have been included in that act ol Par
liament which put mi end Iu slavery in the
British Colonic, nt nn expense of .0,(JU0,
COO; hut in that case what would have be
eoniu of the North American Democracy ?
Iu tlmt ease it would l.avo been impossible,
for 1.CC0.CC0 slaveholdei women mid chil
dren included m have lorded it over n re
public of a.lOCO.OOO of men ; we should have
seen tin slaveholder ill the Presidential chair;
perhaps nominating eoiiveuliomh would not
have been invented; wo should never have
heard of the slave-catching I iw, nud the
bloodhounds would have been shut up ill the
stall instead of the editorial room ; wit should
have had no llalliiuoro Platform, nud the
Democracy would have wanted the real soul
nml actual boml of it unity. I.'nivetsal his

would have blessed I louu.iiiiy !
Tliu history of Ihe North American Union,
if we penetrate downward to the punclum .i
lion, i u histoiy of the progress of slave
hohling. Alter every revolution, thu reac
tionary element o tho state lit. ds some new
point of erystalizatiou, from which il make
it preparation liir future rule mid draw to
itself nil kindred reactionary liuce. Thu
reactionary erjlalizalioii point in North A
incrica has always been the holding ol slaves,
mid this ha gradually seized upon mid made
it own nil other reactionary elements. Jis
progress ha been monstrous, unit like nil
other reaction, it will never find u stopping
pi ', i ii il it has overcome nil opposiiiou.or
i itself completely overthrown. This is us
certain as the succession of day nud night.
The menus of it progress lie mainly iu the
Constitution, nml its most zeidou minions
nre the Hunker Democrat. It mightiest,
mid in it-consequence, most important, re
cent victory i tin. slave catching law ; and
in case Mr. Pierce should become President,
the slaveholder would seek nut merely to
rule, but tu subjugate the Union. Much has
been said ot the danger tu which the Union
is exposed ; I u.ii of opinion llial it never wa
in greater (Linger thai, just now, for the great
danger to tho Union lie not iu attacks upon
her Slavery, but iu thoso upon her Freedom.
Let ii look n littlo closer ut thu sign of the
tune a they exliil.it themselves iu the doings
of the B illiuioru Convention.
Iu tha first dace, of what spirit was this
Convention horn ? In the metropolis of a
Slave State, niter long-continued intrigues
and inachiiiulions, nssemble a number ol so
called delegate, who assume the title of del
egate of tho people bin the majority nre
nothing but political humbugger by proles
ion. The delegate of the people have the
strunge duty to H-rl'orin of making known to
thesuvereign people their own will, that they
(the people) mny benr it well in mind until
the Presidential election. True, the sover
eign people nre lint bound by thi instrument,
hut lut theui read nny real Democratic"
sheet and they will find tlmt whoever adopts
not the derlarntii.il of the Convention lunn
hiiggers us siicred, is n had Democrat nt hot

nominated by them, but also in regard to the
platform uml the parly principle, which they
proclaim mid lay Im-Ioih the sovereign pen

I am of opinion, indeed, that is mi excel

and for his zeal for Ihe Compromise but'
more valuable i the lesson which the people
huvebcen tuught as to the democracy ol

the slaveholders exercise iu all the affairs
of tho Union.
Well, then, the candidate selected hy the
.iiuveniion Hrn the Northern Mr. 1'ieree Iu
cotijiinclion with i'ip Souihern Mr. Kintf.
No prophet on earth, nol even one single
(iermali hunker newspaper, had ever tbouuhl

ourselves, wo have something better to do, thau
to commend the eloquent mouthing of anti
slavery whero it U done expressly to pervert
men's conscience, and'' seduce them from the

Mr. Clay's Will.
Some of the papers have endeavored to man
ufacture any amount of indignation agsinst Mr.
Uiddiugs snd Mr, Osrrison and others, who
hsvs ventured to suggest that Henry Clay was
not altogether the mora than saint ths Divin
ity, which his eulogists have been pleased to
represent him. If any defence of their course ia
needed, it is lo be found, without search, in the
fsct, that slave-holders north and south hi
political friend and enemies have all united to
represent hira as tht divins apostle of liberty.
When ths fsct is, that no man who has figured
in our national history hae done as much to
render slavery irradicnblo from our soil, no man
has done as much to extend its area and to com
bine the government and all the people in iu
existence and support. Whatever eUe he may
have done, this hss rendered his sdrent and ex
istence among us a cslamity and a curse to the
nation as it has also been to the slave whom
ho bos personally held Ta bondage and be
queathed with their chains to his posterity. A
life, the niighlcst efforts of which, were devoted
to thi. accursed object, is now represented ss
resplendent with virtue, and crowned with
mrtyr-like devotion to freedom. Uy thus fal
sifying history, deceiving snd corrupting our
people, and teaching tho hoarts of our youth to
beat with love and veneration for the apostle of
slavery, as tho demigod of liberty, they hope by
his death to more effectually establish tyranny,
than ever he has douo by his long life of devo
tion to its interest. In viow of all this it dots
not becoino tho friends of trutii and freedom to
bo silent. To bo silent at such a time is to be
fulse to truth, to freedom, to msn and ta God.
