TTThat excellent tlemoeralic Journal, the

new and neat dress, and presented quite
tteautiful appearance. The Enquirer was one
among the first papers 6T Ohio, that opposed
-the midnight order of Know Nothings, and
tnaiiy were the predictions that it would not
long survive te parsne the step it had taken.
Id the face of these predictions, we are glad to

will be in .proportion.

speech at Westport, he avowed himself in
favor of establishing slavery in Kansas. He
ays tail be made no allusion to the subject,

it acts, as far as consistent with the constitu

THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.
From present indications there can be no
doubt that there ia a battle to be fought, and
a fierce contest to be struggled through, by the
friends of the Union and the Constitution,
against the scattered fragmtntsof all factions
and partiea, it the next Presidential election.
Tha all powerful incentive of the spoils of of
fice, to be secured by the overthrow of the
Democracy, in the next contest, will be suffi
ciently powerful to stimuTate the routed and
discomfited leaders of the various factions in
the Union, to strenums action against the
friends of the Constitution, and there can be
no doubt as to what banner will be unfurled,
by the heterogeneous ma&j or discordant ele
ments, in the hope of success, in seising upon
the spoil of the national administration. The
signs of the times too, plainly indicate that
there will be an attempt made to anay the
Notlh against the South in a great consolida
ted sectional issue, having for its platform, op
position to the principles of the Compromise
of 1P60, and its legitimate fruits, the Kansas
Nebraska bill of the last session of Congress.
The assault will be led on by the leading
spirits of defeated Know Ntitliingism, under
the black banner of the Abolitionists, and their
rallying cry will be the restoration of the Mis
souri Compromise and repeal of the Nebraska
bill. Their holy horror of the foreign born
white man, will be entirely forgotten, in the
ardency and warmth of their love a nd affection
for the wooly headed African, and their horror
and detestation of the Southern farmer who
dsres to own a slave. From the desperate
character of the leaders of the opposition, and
the unscrupulous means they will resort to,
we may resonably anticipate one of the fier
cest political contests which, the Democratic
party bas betn called upon to meet since the
times of Gen. Jackson and the United Stales
Bank. No meant, however base and unprin
cipled, will be left unlried to bring about the
defeat of the Democracy, and thus secure to
those hungry bounds the spuils of the National
Administration. The time for action is short,
and ittow becomes the duty of the friends of
the Constitution in Ohio, to begin at once and
prepare for the struggle. The overthrow of
fauulacismand Know Not hi tig ism in Virginia,
Tennessee, Alabama, Pennsylvania and other
Slates, clearly demons'raie, that the people
only need to understood a question of policy
perfectly, in order to render a just and righ
teous verdict through the ballot box. Let
therefore, that good old democratic principle
of popular sovereignty, embodied in the Kan
sas Nebraska biil.be pleinly and fairly brough
before the people, and we can safely rely on
their intelligence and love of freedom, to sua
tain the right of tin citizens of the Territories
to frame end enact laws for their own inter
nal regulation snd government, without the in
terference or diclation of Congress or the gen
era! government. The inestimable right
self government, guaianteed to the citizens of
the territories, by the much abused and mis
represented Nebraska bill, tins not, as yet,
been fairly understood by a lorge portion ol
tha voters of Ohio. Let the great principle ol
self government be plainly and feirljr biuutlit
before the people, and we will have no fears
of the result in the -next Presidential contest
The peo,ile may aomelimes be humbugged and
deceived by the enemies of Democracy, bu
they always come out right in the end.
Now and Then.
An exchange says: "One brief year ago,
and from every section of the Union, the news
come pouring in, that the Democracy were
beaten. To the eye of a democrat, the polili
cat field presented a vast desert, with not a
single oasis to cheer his weary eye, or afford a
Jesting place for our much abused party, and
its glorious principles. Ha who still cherish
ed democracy in his heart, was compelled to
console himself with the hope, that the peo
ple, still honest and patriotic, and still willing
to confide in that democracy they had so often
trusted, without having that trust abused
would, after they had recovered from the in
toiication of Know Nulhingism, and finding
themselves deceived and cheated, rise in their
majesty and rebuke their insu Iters. The win
ter closed, and with returning spring came the
noise of conflict in the Old Dominion. The
Democracy o: that noble old Slain, led on by
the gallant Wise, were the 'first to enter the
lists with this young bigot "Ssm," after he
had slept the winter upon his laurels. And
Virginia, true to the memory of her Washing
ton, her Jefferson, her Madison, and her hosts
ol patriots Virginia the mother of Stoles and
Presidents, repudiate! Know Notlnngism, and
cast from her soil the dark brood of proicrip
live doctrines it proposed to inaugurste.
State after State, of our southern sisters spoke
next, and each time from the sunny south,
came up the democratic shout of victory.
Then the North caught up the shout and from
the hills of Maine, came ringing back the cry,
mat me earn lantern ooin bound order was
no more. Anon the far west speaks forth,
and is answered by the old Keystone confirm
ing the news that "Sam" is no more. Only
three Stales have given "Sam" by the aid ol
"sambo, ' a hare majority, what a contrast
between now and then We say to the De
mocracy, sliuut I for in one short year you
have redeemed the Union.'
The Democracy of the glorious old Keystone
have come out the contest through which they
have just psssed, covered all over with glory.
Last year Know Nolhingism hod everything it
own way. This year the Democracy charged
along their whole line and have swept them
nearly out of existence by electing their Slate
ticket, and a large majority in the Legislature.
All hail I plrrious od keystone. One year
was long enough for that sneaking foe called
Know Nolhingism to rule within thy borders.

The Democratic vote of the State has in
creased twenty-two thousand since last year,
wlien it only amounted to one hundred and
nine thousand. In reference to the election
of Chase, the Meigt County Democrat says :
"The election of Mr. Chase will not . nly
give an additional impetus to the baneful sen
timent of sectional hatred between the North
and the Sou'!., but it will have a corelative
influence upon the trade and commerce of the
State, and especially will it affect the eastern
and southern counties, which send their an
nual products to ibe New Orleans and South
ern markeis. For several years have the
Southern people viewed with suspicion the
traders of Ohio, and not long since a man from
Ohio was threatened, somewhere on the low
er Mississippi, with the destruction of his boat
load, simply because he hailed from the Abo
lition State of Ohio, as they concluded from
the result of the election a year ago. This is
no less a (anatocism than that of the North,
yet both are rentable, and in the latter it
seems like retaliation.
The election of Chase will widen the breach
between the two sections of the country, and
add fuel to the undermining fires of disunion."
We are pleased to observe that many of the
prominent religious journals of the country are
adrninixtering severe rebukes to clergymen ta
king an active pr.rt in politics. The Cluislian
Intelligencer, (Presbyterian,) of a recent date,
remarks as follows in relation to such proslilu
torsofthe clerical office: "While the great
bodi of clergymen of all denominations remem
ber that Christ's kingdom is not of this world,
and that their proper business as ministers is
to presch the gotpel-at theiole adequate reme
dyor all public and toe al, at well at tpirilual
wrong, there -are few others in esch denomi
nation, who think Christianity loo slow, and
the Divine method too erroneous; nd so they
turn in with demagogues, and infideis, an J hu
manilarian reformers, and, like the happy flies
on chariot wheels, raise a great dust, partly
for their own admiration, and partly to show
what tremenduoiu effects ftitir progressive
holla-bullno is producing."
Gov. Shannon's Position.
Gov. Shannon thus explaines his position in
a letter to Mr. Lindsley, late member of Con
gress from the Sumlusky distiicl :
"The truth is, Island on the Kansas Bill.
I believe the people of the territory should de
termine for themselves the rhnracltr of lheir
domestic institutions; and 1 iln not think it
would be proper and in accordance with the
principles of the Kansas Bill, for the Chief
Executive officer of the Territory, sent out by
the Federal Government to me auyaccrdentsl
influence that office might give him, to con
trol the public mind on the quest inn of slavery,
either one way or the "ther, but to leave the
people of the territory to determine that ques
tion uninfluenced by any one, for themselves.
Such are my views, and I have no occasion,
either expressed or acted on any other, since
my arrival in the country."

there was poorer encouragement for leaving

inrPossmore Williamson's esse was again
before Judge Kune yesterday, on petition, in
which his attorneys reviewed the subject of
his incarceration. Judi;e Kane, however,
gave the counsel to understand that the first
step wos for Williamson to purge himself of
(he conlempl of court, for which he is now in
restraint, before his petition could be received
though he would li.ten to an argument upon
his right to be heard by such petition. It op
pears to us ihtit Passmore Williamson might
get very easily out or his present difficulty,
without any impeachment of the truth of his
former return, or any sacrifice of personal dig
nity, except that which every citizen should
make to the laws of his country. He, we pre
sume may come into court and say, if he can
with a clear conscience, that he has not tbe
custody of Jane Johnson, in any sense which
gives him the conlrol of her movements, or
which would enable him to produce her in
court in answer to the habeas corpus. The
law does not require impossibilities of a man,
and any reasonable probability, sustained by
the sworn Jacls in the case, vould, we pie
some be admitted by the Judges to reinstate
Williamson in the rights forfeited by his con
tumacy, the question of his responsibility for
the p.irt he took in the escape of the slaves
being one for after consideration. If he were
to state the facia frankly and unequivocally,
for the purpose of possessing the court with
the true state of thease, and not qutbblngly
or evasively, to avoid responsibility, he would
be doing, in our opinion, his duty toward him
self am1 family, and be showing a proper re
spect and submission to the luws, which posi
tion certainly can never lower any man in his
own selfrespect or that of the community in
which he resides. His present position is re
garded by the public as one of defiance toward
the law, in which he forfeits the s)mpalhy of
i no iuuiie, inu gets no creun tor heroism.

The Washington Correspondent of tbe Bal
timore Sun, "Iok," gives tbe following at his
view of monetary affairs in tbia country i
Tbe report of the Secretary of the Treasury
on the condition of the banka throughout the
Union ia more favorable to the credit snd safe
ty of those institutions than was anticipated a
year or two ago. Tbe great expansion of tbe
paper currencv in conseouence of the influx
of gold had caused some alarm, and the drain
of our gold to pay for 'arte importations wss,
as many thought likely to lead to a colapse of
tne nanus, out irom mis calamity we have
escaped and the banks generally are aa aound
as at any former time, while they yet greatly
assist in the conduct of the business concerns
of i he country.
The reported bsnk capital ia now about
three hundred snd thirty three millions, while
their specie amounts to fifty three millions snd
their circulation to one hundred and eighty-six
millions. In some of the stales a few banks
fell into such discredit that their notes were
worthless, but necerally the bank paper has
served the purpose of a circulating medium.
It would be well H the Secretary, in his next
repo t, would give us a statement of the
amount of the loss lo the community through
broken bank poner. The sum will be found
very considerable j but this is an evil thai is
inseverable from the system, which we must
continue to entluir, even should it be attend
ed with occnsional inconveniences.
A New York paper expresses the epprehen
sion that the pressure for gold in England that
a suspension of specie pajmcnls will follow,
as in the war growing cut of the French Rev
olution. Should this occur its efftel will not
be to increase, but much to diminish, the
drain of gold from this country. Importations
ore swelling up to the maximum of the (lush
times of 1853, in consequence of our having
become ntaiti able to pay fur them. Every
thing wears an appearance of remarkable
prosperity. The revenue for the next year
will be, as some estimate, not less than eighty
five millions, including ten from the lands.
Congress must be industrious and ingenious
also to find ways to expend all this money.
They will be assisted by numerous ou'.side ad
visers in their arduous task.

WASHINGTON, D. C., Aug. 26, 1854.
Mr Dr.a Sir: Accept my thanks for your
kind letter of i lie 22d iust., in the general
views of which 1 heartily concur.
The members of our parly csn only act to
gether cordially and efficiently when they can
cordially recognize a corn on platform.
The principle of 'non-intervention,' which
constitutes the leading feature of the Nebraska
ami Kansas bill, received the sanction ol the
Dim irracy of the Republic in 1862. It was
re-affirmed by more lhan seven tenths of the)
Democracy of the Hoiit.e and Senate upon the
pat-sage of the bill referred to; and will within
eighteen months furnish, ftom its inherent
soundness, the strongest issue we can tender
lo our opponenls.
But nr if it were otherwise, are we to
abandon the right, or manifest for want of faith
in the intelligence and patriotism of the peopi
by tignificant silence.
It we, of the Northern and Middle Staes. are
unable to sustain ourselves upon theground of
maintaining for, and securing to, the people of
eveiy otaie and Terntoiy of this Union all
tneir constitutional rights and immunities, our
nominal ascendency would erase to he either
honorable to ourselves or useful lo the count
ry. Besides, as far ss the Democratic parly is
concerned, all experience proves thst every
apparent advantage gained by a temporary pol
icy, or uy concessions lo error and lonancism,
have only resulted in ultimate distraction and
weakness. Individuals who desire lo retain
nominally a position in the Democratic ranks.
but who are unwilling to stand upon a na
tional platform, should understand, that while
the masses can well dispense with their co-op
eration, they cannot, by silence, occupy a
doubtful position upon fundamental Questions

on Monday proceeding theelection, from Lex
ington. Kentucky, wheie he had made a long
speech, and such was the condition of his
voice that be could not address the Democracy
at Court street that nigh!, as his thousands of
admirers desired. He was wamly urged by bia
friends and by gentlemen of Ihe Executive
Committee ao to.do; but he Hated that his
voice was in a bad condition, utterly inade
quate for a public address in ihe open air, and
insisted that he must be excused from making
the attempt. Had it not been for a knowledge
of these facts, which were communicated to
the Committee, he would have been unani
mously invited by that body to peak on the
evening before the election, We trust that
our Democratic exchanges, far and wide, aaan
act of justice to Ihe Democracy of this city and
lo the distinguished Senator from Illinois, will
copy the above refutation of the falsehood of
our Abolition Governor and of bia base libel
upon both. Cin. Enq.
