From the Charleston Mercury, Nov. 18.
W. l.l.me.l because we do net reeoiMiisc i
the election of Mr. Buchanan ns a signal of peace ;
between the North nnd the South, l'cthaps a i
tiart of our fault is that wo cannot comprehend the
, ... . - ,
force of the following "grateful and inspiring !
'Hurs : liu.ru! Ko'll all .pre tiup.
To llufk Dvl liret-U, uu-J Itie L'l-iuu UO.,'
We like the men who nre celebrated in tl
lodious lines, as well as the author himself ; but .
we do not believe that thev havo any power of cs-1
. .7 . . , ,i - ,
tabisnnL' and prosen niir u pc;a.:alde union be.!
tweentho North and the South. Nor do we be-
lievB that it is for the interest of tlie Sooth, nor !
even of tho North, to continue a connection cele
brated during the last twenty yeais only for con
tinuous and embittered controversy, always grow
ing more bitter and aiore hnpelos ol pacifi.-ati u
tainting nil legislation, either with rank section
alism, or with the bargaining of venal politicians
to exchange one sectional interest against another.
Let nny man take the wholv'scries of Presiden
tial eloetions.frotn the beginning to the present, nnd ;
sar whether tha election ol Mr. Uiichannn is
proof that the sentiment of Unionism, of defer-!
to the rights and opinions of all sections of!.
the Confederacy, has triumphed in this VPSt. j
Mr. Buchanan has recieved the vote ot four North-
ern Statos md fourteen Southern States. Of tho
former, two (Illinois and Now Jersey) cast largo
majorities in favor of Free Soil Governors! on the.
ery day of the Fresidenti.il clecion. In one ot
the remaining two, (Indiana.) the Buchanan ticket
recieved only a plurality ; nud in but one of the
four his native State had be a majority of nil
h rang cut, iin J (tils coiislsied of Out T03 voles
out of nn aggregate of 400,205.
And tho South is called upon forest satisfied
with this result, and reproached for not holding
our arms, and not saying we nro satisfied that it
will last our timo, or tit least that it will last, as
Mr. Mienwber says, "till something turns up."
rot our part, we see nothing that can turn up,
tinder this perpetual preaching of Unionism as the
euuremo good, but the depressing l.umili.i'i. n and
final subioetijii of the South to un avowedly bos-
tile country. For, socially and pmctiealfy. the
North is seperuted from us. They are not only
hostile to us in their ideas, but they perpetually
entertain tho determination of dominating over us
upon our moat intimate social concerns; in short
of revolutionizing tlie cntiro frame-work ef our
indue .rial organization, nr.d leaving it to the wild
force of chance, whether wo fihail cseapo the
imminent destiny ,of baib.triai.isu. nnd lieinorali
lation. In the midst of nil then evidences of sectional
hostility, which were never so strong ns now,
we nro called upon to recieve the election of Mr.
Buchanan elected bec-.use tho enemies of the
South could not agree among themselves elected
by a very small majority elected by a minority
Of the popular vote-ni a proof of tho prevalence
of Union' and constitutional principles, nnd us n
pledge that tho oimditi..ns d" the Coi.lederacy
hereafter to bo faithfully fulfilled. Wo think we
have it reasonablo quantity of credulity, but we
have not enough to Uuih.w this creed.

very gently since tho visit of Gov. Wise to Wheat

the arguments of Gov. A Lini--, of South Carolina,
to favor of reviving the slave trade, but urging
that (ho project is utterly iiofiraclicable, thn whole

ray of the pecuniary and tho physical influence of
the non slaveowning portion of the nation, through
means of the government, in support of the slave
oligarchy, tho institution would speedily be
brought to au end, cither by tlie revolt ofthe slaves
tbeuise'ives or by foreign iuterferenco, or by both
combined. What a mockery of all consistency
then is it for you to urge "Abovo all let us vote
for no man to any office who denies tho doctrino
lhat governments are instituted to secure all
persons under their jurisdiction iu tho equal en
joy utcnt of life and liberty," when you deny it as
u private citiion in common with all other
voters, in every ballot that is cast for a public
officer, and as a member of Congress by every tote
for the supply of the means which curry forward
and perpetuate the government 1
Does it never occur to you that the support
which any private citizen of Ohio affords to tho
general government is an act of gratuitous wicked
oess, and meanness, an act of conspiracy against
the freedom of four millions of slaves for w hich
he receives nothing in the shape uf an equivalent?

It is singular that so very intelligent an editor

Besides llio National Society, there nro various

through their pr-ses and itinerant lecturers, an

and tho American Government which they con
sider the two principal pillars of American Shi
very. They did not at first assault either church

Our limits will not permit a long discussion of
the merits nod domains ol this class of unti-sla-very
men ; but wo think, while paying tliem so
much of a compliment, it is but just to sav that
tliey have cut themselves off from access to the
ears nud hearts of multitudes by their needless
severity and denunciation. Bitternes-i ill becomes
a reformer it is alike un-christiiin and unphiloso
phical. 'Things ny their right names" is a max

it furnishes an excuse for sitting in harsh judge

epithet of censure.
"Not the less should stern-eyed duty

We think, therefore, if our Garrisoninn frionds
in their earnest pleas for the slave exhibited more
christian commiseration lor evil-doers. North and
South, Ihey would bu more successful. Surely
right adherence to justice and truth can co-exist
with yearning tenderness toward a world lying in
wickedness. Thunder and earthquake have ihoir

Tlie theory of the Constitution maintained by

HORRIBLE RAILROAD MURDER AT ALLIANCE.
EIGHT PERSONS KILLED AND THE OR FIFTEEN
On Monday evening last, about 7 o'clock, th
Express train on the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne and
Chicago Kailrond, which left the Salem Station
about o o'clock, in charge of Conductor A.Leavitt,
wns run into nt Alliance by a passenger train on
the Cluvelur.d & Pittsburgh Railroad, W. G. Chv
laud, Conductor. Leavitt's train had arrived at
Alliance on time, waited tho usual twenty ruins
utes for supper, and was just leaving the Station
for Crestline when C'cland's train came up front
Wellsvill out of timo, and at an unusual speed,
running nt tho rale of about thirty-five miles an
hour, and struck Lenvitl's train as it wns crossing
tho Cleveland & Pittsburgh Road, between the last
two curs, breaking the coupling, and throwing
thcin off the track, on each side of the locomotive,
forcing one of the cars into the rotunda of the
station house. The side of the house, together
with the platform, where the car struck were com
The following list of killed and wounded were
standing on aud about the platform ac the time ef
the collision :
Jucob Rudy, of Alliance, switch tender; John
M'lutyre, of Allinoce, Carpcntor; Dr. Preston B,
Smith nnd Lady, of Alliance; Reason Atterholt, of
Guilford, Columbiana Co., Carpenter; King Wat
eon, of Now Lisbon, O., also a Carpenter; John
Brooks, of Gloster county, New Jersey; and N,
G. Taylor, cf Philadelphia, Merchant, and of the
firm of Pratt t Taylor. . '
J. Painter, of Pike township, Stark Co. 0.; Chas.
Couts, Alliance, badly hurt; M. A. Root, Daguers
rcotype Artist, Philadelphia, thigh broken; Field
ing Cavanagh and Lady, and Anna Armor, of Co
lumbus city, Ind., badly hurt, especially Mrs. Ar
mor, who is not at all expected to survive; P. N.
Courtney, late master of transportation on tha
Ohio and Pennsylvania Road, slightly hurt, and W.
C. Clcland, Conductor of the train on the Cleve
land & Pittsburgh Road, slightly wounded. Sev
eral others, whose names we did not learn, wsra
moro or less injured, but not seriously.
The whole blame of the catastrophe seem td
rest on the F.npiueer, John Cherry, of lbs Cleve
land ft Pittsburgh train, who immediately mado
his escape, after the accident ooourred. The reg
ulations of the Company require each train to com,
to a dead halt, and the fireman to be sent forward,
to see that the track be clear of obstructions, be-,
fore crossing the line of tha Pittsburgh & Flu.
Wayne Company. In this instance, this very im--portant
rule was not only violated, but tha Pitts
burgh & Clevekud train was driven up to tha sta
tion at a speed fearfully rapid, even bad there been
no impediment in its way, The Engineer on tha
up train claims, we believe, that hit engine be
come umnanagable, and he could not oontrol it. -v
How true tl is is, we know not. If not true, it
shows a most wanton recklessness on bit part, and
a seeming determination to violate all rules and'
orders of the Company, regardless of consequen
ces. He was arrested we understand, o. Cleye
land, on Tuesday, aud will no doubt have jus tic
done him. .
