We cut the following from the Ken

i4st. If their votes elect the President for
Federalism, they will hold him, and the
party indebted to them, bound to carry
out the.ir views; and they must acquiesce;
or, as Blanchard says, "they will rive
their pariy into- splintiers ;" that is, the
Aholitionists will abandou them, and they
will fall from power. To avoid this, they
would readily consent, as Blanchard says,
to give his sect "a free co'trse in Con
areas ;" and he concludes justly, "agita
tion is thus facilitated, our people encour
aged, and our cause advanced."
Now, the Southern phople must know
that, even if Harrison is cheating the Abo
litionists as to his real feelings and false
pretensions, still the result expected by
Blanchard from his election by Abolition
votes iust be realized. Having the ring'
in the nose of Harrison and his party, they
will be led by Adams, Stevens, Slade,
Gates, Evans, and the resi, to yield "the
rree course in Congress," by which the
Abolitionists expect to work out their ob
jects. Are the people of the South ready
to vote for the candidate who is to be in the
power of tteir enemies ? Are they wil
ing to promote the objPcts distinctly avow

with impunity, until every other demand
against them is liquidated. And when

to repletnish tihe stock, aecessary to make

possible that mechanics, who are as ne
eessary to the wealth of the country,.as
nur dlaily food is to the strength of the
Woidy, can thrive, and rise in the sale of re
spectability and influence, unless they
receive, (in comment at least, with other
classesof'men) their dues. A mechanic
cannot take ono step) in business life, ~
without increasing expense; his stock, his
tools, his provisions. his rents, his apparel,
each and all costs him cash; and he de
