(they will all profess that,) but whether he
sustains the code of Kansas Laws. "If not
wnal laws are now binding in Kansas? If not
by" what authority do the Courts and soldiers
sustain those laws? If thev are, what meas
ures can be taken to repeal that bloody Code?
In one word, do the candidates for'Ccngreassus-
tain the fraud by which the Legislature and
Laws of Kansas were created, and which Judge
Leoompti and Gen. Smith are bow enforcing
with writs and bayonets, or do they not? This
is the practical question. The answer to it will
Mr. Si.Tr is known to be opposed to the ex-
tension of Slavery. That opposition has been
with him, life-long. In Congress and out of it,
he has talked and voted against it. Mr. Burns,
his opponent, acknowledges his adhesion to the
doctrines of the Cincinnati Platform, which was
drawn up to suit the wishes o&and receives the
support of the most ultra South Carolina Slave
ry extensionist. He talks much about the right
of the people to govern themselves, and similar
generalities. - So does the Richmond nqnrer,
Charleston Mercury, and other Southern papers
that advocate a dissolution of the Union in the
event of Fxehoxt's election. ' But there is
practical case in head, and this is it. "Congress
left the people of Kansas to legislate for them
selves.' Instead of legislating for themselves,
they were invaded, and overrun by Missourians.
A legislature was elected and a Code of Laws
enacted, worthy only of the most barbarous age
of the world. But, these barbarous acts they
enacted are the art of Kansas, say the Buchaa
iers. To support them is Law and Order, and
to carry them out Judge Lkcomtte,. President
Pierce, Jetfebhoit Davis fc Co., put forth the
whole power of the Government. This is the
position of the Bitbaxax parry, and which they
must support, or abandon the whole position
and principles of the party. Now we demand
of the Bcchaxax candidate for Congress of this
District, whether he supports this Kansas Code,
or not? That we may be fully understood, and
the character of these laws explained, we re
publish the following paragraphs,' which we be
lieve to be correct, taken from the 101st chapter:

There is now prexented one of the gravest
political questions which can arise under our
Constitution, aud it is in vain to avoid it by the
common acts of political dodging. The people
must and will know how their candidates stand
an actual, present question of constitutional
freedom. What rigid had any man to a slave
Kansas which he has not in Ohio? What
power can abrogate the Constitution of the Uni
ted States in regard to the rights of speech, of
the press, of bearing anus, or of .any other
personal right, not conceded in the powers of
the General Government?
These questions must be met. They must be
decided upon by the Northern Freemen. Not

Here is another extract taken from the Farm

Esq., Editor. ' It seems from this that he was
"satisfied" when the resolution "repudiating'

could have desired, and that is the addition of
the words, "in the States," in the resolution rel

but after the vUlnlraval of the resolution repudiat

the resolutions as they stand.
Again, in the Farmer of Sept. 14, 1848, A. G.
Dimmock, Esq., Editor, in trying to prove Gen.
Tatlob a Pro-Slavery man, Mr. D. says: . .
No man, ia his senses, can for a moment
doubt that General Taylor holds to the doctrine
that the Slaveholders may people the new Ter
ritories with their slaves and that there is no
Cer, either in Congress or the people of the

case, how can Northern men, who oppose the
extension of Slavery; how can Whigs, who claim
to be Wilmot Proviso men,' support Taylor for
President ? ' But, if they choose to. so it blind

In the Holmes County Farmer of Aug. 13,
1847, Mr. D. gays: "The sooner the Democracy of
the yorth rally upon the Wilmot Proviso, against
any more Slave Territory, the better."
Again, in his address to the Democratic Elec
tors of Knox and Holmes counties, he says:
"I boldly proclaim that I am opposed to Sla
very in all its forms, wherever located; and am
unalterably and perseveringly opposed to its ex
tension into territories nam free. No act of mine,
either by word, pen or vote, shall ever sanction,
aid or eomlort, toe extension oi esiavery.
In the Farmer of Sept. 14, 1848, we find an
extract from a speech made by Col. Welles, in
Trumbull county, in which the Col. says: "I
am opposed to the extension of Slavery beyond
its present limits."
Hundreds of honest men. in Holmes county,
who voted with the Democratic party at the
time these extracts were penned, have since left
just because they became satisfied that that
party had sold itself to the South and were la

thus accounts for it: "The citizens of Calhoun

Republicans in every town should have efficient
men appointed to stand by the Polls, during
the day of election. Men who would stuff bal
lot-boxes should be. watched! Men who would
brow-beat' the timid and knock down the
weak should be made to behave! We cannot
too earnestly urge upon our friends the import'
anee of efficient Vigilance Committees, to at
tend upon the Polls. These men should also
be furnished with a complete list of the Repub
lican voters "of their respective towns. So,
checking every man as he votes, they will know

living in the Slave States as in the Free. John Ma-

James Col well lost his property and business.
Mechanics and laborers! what do you think
of a poor man in the Slave States? Now what
do you think of making Kansas, New Mexico,
and Utah SL-ra States? Would you like to
live there when Slavery has gone in? Think of
this. ' Think, whether you do live in the ' Land
of Free, when such things are dene and go un
rebuked! Will you vote for such things?
One of the most important perhaps tlie most
important part of the coming election, is to se
cure the Honserof Representatives. With that,
we can practically contra the Government, in
any possible event. So far, we have done well.
We have gained a member in Iowa; another in
Maine, and substantially one in Missouri. But
in 1854,-we hah such great and uu paralleled suc
cess m some States, that we can hardly hope to
equal it again, allowing for the common acci
dent of the election. . Ohio was one of those
States, in which we got the whole d -Jrgation no
less than thirty-one members. : It is true, we
have now but nineteen Republicans, so that the
loss of two Districts would make us no worse off.
But, we ought to have the whole, and with pro
per exertion, tte can hxve them.
Freedom, or Slavery.
That's Ihe question now before the American
people. Shall Slavery be extended over our
Territories, made legal in all our States, every
where disgracing and crushing out Free Labor?
Or, shall slavery be restricted to its present
limits, tolerated by municipal law, while Free
dom remains the watchword of the nation?
Reason with your Neighbors.
Our friends in Maine' tell us, that the week
prior to their elect ion, every Republican of the
State made it his sole business to talk and rea
son with his neighbors on the great issue of the
times. Hence their glorious and all-sweeeping
majorities! Let us in Ohio profit by their ex
ample. Let us see what individual effort may
do in Ohio. Leader.

For the Holmes County Republican.
The Banner Flag.
In the last number of the' Farmer the editor
says he is authorized to announce that "the La
dies ot our town are making a magnificent
flag to present to the township which shall give
the largest gain for the Democratic ticket over
the vote of the last Governor's election." This
is another evidence of the low and base means
resorted to by the slavery extensionist, to im
pose their unprincipled candidates upon the
people an indirect effort to bribe men to cast
their suffrages for a party bankrupt in princi
pie but rich in corruption. It is said that one
of the whisky dealers ia this county has been
promised a bag of coffee, by a Cleveland
Wholesaler, if this county shall give a thousand
of a majority for the slavery ticket. When
could such rewards be tendered but from a par
ty ready to indorse Border Ruffianism, and the
extcntion of Slavery. ' '
The Republican party have neither flags or
coffee to offer for a majority of the votes for their
candidates, but they do offer candidates whose
past precedents demonstrate their worthiness
for the support of the people, and indicate a
bright and glorious future for the lovers of free
dom and free labor. How king will it be before
we shall again be solicited to patronise a Fire
men's supper, to buy uniforms to clothe the De

the consideration placed upon the Banner Flag.
How hard it is for some men to see when a bid
is made for their vote. Better let the "Savior
of the party" in 1840, go on with his twaddle
about the Bible's sanctioning slavery, than at
tempt to buy votes with a flag or bag of coffee.

there was the least danger of his opuosiug

influence of the government in favor of
free institutions, would they-support him
with such energy, and unvarying fidelity
and enthusiasm, think you ? Such men
can never be found in the ranks of a pure

and revile, and makes their extension and

existence. It were as hopeful to . seek for

The seats of the Democratic party is
now in the South. In the South it gets
its votes, and its sentiments. .
The Richmond - Examiner, a leading
Democratic paper in Virginia, and . one of
the most ardent supporters of Buchanan,
holds the following language:
Until recently, the defence of olavery la
bor under great difficulties, because its a-
pologists(tbr they were mere apologists.)
took half-way grounds! They confined
the defence of Slavery to mere negro slave
ry ; thereby giving up the slavery principle,
and admitting other forms of slavery to be
wrong. The liue of defence, however, is
now changed. The South now maintains
that Slavery is right, natural and necessa-
rval does not depend npon uivfkrkx
ces of complexion. The laws of the
Slave States justifed the holding of white
men m bondage.
The Charleston Standard, a leading
Bucbnnan baper in aouth Carolina, says :
"Slavery is the natural and normal con
dition of the laboring man whether white
ob black. The great evil of ; Northern.
free society, is, that it ia burdened with a
servile class of mechanics and laborers,
unfit for self-government, and yet clothed
ith the attributes and powers of citizens.
Master and Slave is a relation in society as
necessary as that of parent and child : and
the Northern Slates will have yet to intro-
uce it. Their theory of free government
is a delusion." . -

Buchanan organ, saves :

Mechanics, filthy operatives,, small-fisUsd
farmers, and moon-struck theorists ! All
the Northern and especially the New Eng

one meets is that of mechanics struggling
to be genteel, and small farmers who do
their own drudgery; and yet who are hard
ly fit for association with a Sonthorn gentleman's-

society which the Northern bordorera are
endeavoring to extend into Kansas.
