lowing paragraph, which, considering it is
a Buchanan journal, is in admirable keep
ing. It is observable, and may serve as a
key to the real intention of Buchanan ' or
gans out of Missouri,' that while uttering
the most bloody-minded sentiments and
threats, he interlards all his brutality with
expressions that they (the Border Ruffians)
are struggling for "peace and quietni
law and order. Leader.
"We are still of the opinion that the two
parties cannot exist in this territory. As
long as the experiment is beiuc tried, we
shall be in constant tumult, and civil war
in Kansas inevitable. We care not how
many treaties may be made with these
traitors by men in .authority, who may
prostitute their office, as long as we can
raise a hand to strike our aim will be to
rid this territory of a set of scoundrels
whose presence would dishonor the infernal
regions. We hope our friends in this por
tion of Kansas, who have been the subjects
of many luvults and injuries from these
Northern harpies, will no longer suffer them
to remain in their midst. I rent them as
you would the midnight assassin, for they
are no less and whenever they are seen
with arms in their hands, let the crack of
your rifle be the only salute they receive
from you. Do this and we will once more
be in possession of that piece and quietness
we enioved before the territory was over
run with these Northern maruders."
The Missouri Democrat says of this:
. "Here is a pet and protege of the Pierce
Administration, coolly.' and deliberately
contemplating a renewal of the scenes of
brigandism aud murder which have dis
graced the nation for a shameful year, at
the very time when an official of the Ijov-
eminent has issued a : proclamation," de
nouncing all lawlessness, from whatevc
quarter proceeding, as treason to the coun
try. We have no sympathy for Lane and
his force but it cannot but be said in their
favor, tliat, on the advent of Governor Gea
ry they vacated the Territory," and mani
fested a disposition to abide by the dictates
of Constitutional authority. They have is
sued no proposals for a sanguinary exter
mination, of all the pro-slavery men in the
Territory. This is in their favor; while At
chison, Stringfellow & Co., while compelled
to retire for the present to their haunts
and lairs, do so with the worst grace, and
with the expressed determination to renew
at the earliest opportunity, those acts of
rapine aud slaughter which have damned
them to an everlasting infamy."
Mr. Buchanan and the Cincinnati Con
vention endorse Pierce, Pierce backs up
Atchison, Stringfellow & Co., whose bru
tality aud ruffianism extort the above con
demnation from a leading Buchanan jour
nal, not vile enough to "go the whole fig

promises of a true man upon his bps.
Some of his early acts look like the con-
ct of an upright, impartial and. brave
Governor, aud we had hoped that the man
was to do much towards establishing justice
and peace in that distracted country. But
we are eettinff fearfuL ' Recent acts would
indicate tliat Geary is to be but the tool of
the Kufhans. That he is to be the oppres
sor, rather tlinn the defender of the actual
settlers of the Territory, lie has seized
and imiirisoned nearly 100 of the Free
State men of JLawrence, ou a charge tor
hiirh treason, liocause they were found in
amis against the Territory, aud honored
with his confidence the border leaders and
l)order bands of luVhwav men. He issued
a proclamation for the dissolution of the
army tliat came up against Lawrence, but
when it flatly refused to obey, he. arrested
nobody for treason, but by persuasion and
soft words, and promises to take them into
the public-service, he induced them to de
sist, aud then enrolled 600 of them in the
service of the United States as peace ma
This was done in the face of the state
ment made by the Governor in his proe-;
lamation, that he .had enough regular
t coops for all purposes, and did not require
the aid of militia. Finding himself thus
abandoned once, more to the mercy of a
Ruffian army, bearing all the authority of
the government to sanction their doings,
and not wishing to combat even the name
of the government thus misused, the whole
Free State force under Lane, mumbering
1,500 men abandoned the town, and the
Ruffians, headed by Reid marched into it,
with the Govemor and TJ. S. troops tri
umphantly. . '
The capture of the 95 Free Slate men
who are held for trial is said to have occur
red in this way: The Governor thought
it necessary, to appease 4he Missourians,
to institute a pursuit of Lane and his men,
and the U. S. troops employed in this ser
vice were encountered at a crossing of the
Kaw river, and finding themselves ,thus
pursued, they, in a fit of desperation, are
said to have fired upon their pursuers, kil
ling a cousin of the Governor, and wound
ing several others. The fire was returned,
and 40 of the Free Soilers are said to have
been killed and 96 captured.
The force officially denominated inva
ders and insurgents, and called by the
Border Ruffians "Lane's men," consisted of
three-fourths of the able bodied northern
settlers. They had gathered from their
farms, shops and offices, all over the Ter
ritory, to repel an army of Missouri inva
ders, who threatened the destruction of
Lawrence. - The Missouri assailants have
been aided by the Governor and U. S.
troops in accomplishing a purpose which
singly, they would have utterly failed in.

Two of Jackson's Secretaries
The survivors of the political body
guard of Gen. Jackson are, almost to a
man, in favor of the "Pathfinder." At
the head of this array of war-worn veter
ans stands Francis P. Blair, tho confiden
tial adviser of Jackson, and the editor of
the organ of his administration.
At a Republican meeting in Philadel
phia on Monday last, a letter addressed to
the meeting by Samuel D. Ingham, who
was Secretary of Treasury under Jackson,
was read by the son of Mr. Ingham, in
which letter that gentleman takes firm
ground with the Republicans. , .
. Mr, Ingliain says that he long since
ceased to take an active part in politics,
and that the infirmities of age prevent his
attendance upon the meeting in compli
ance with the imitation, but says:
In the momentous issues now presented,
I should be uufaithful to the dictates of
my judgment, and the conscientious con
victions of a solemn duly, if I withheld any
aid that might be thought vseful in the
trial of the great cause now before the
American people. -
On one side of the great issue before us
the right to hold slaves in all tho territo
ries of the United Slates is claimed by
virtue of the Constitution of the United
Stales. ' . This claim suggests a construc
tive power, not in the class of those neces
sary and proper for the execution of the
granted power; nor have its advocates per
sisted m an attempt to derive from it an
expressed or implied term or meaning of
the Constitution. I hey saw clearly tliat
this would be impossible, and nave now
rested their claim on a "higher law, en
deavoring to prove that "slavery is the
natural and normal condition of the labor
ing man, whether white or black," and
"that the great evil of Northern free socie
ty, is that it is burdened with a servile set
of mechanics and laborers, unfit for self-
government; master and slave is a rela
tion in society, as necessary as that of pa
rent and child, and the Northern States
will yet have to produce it ; their theory of
self-government is a delusion. ouch are
the doctrines and principles now at work
undermining the very foundation of a po
litical system devised by some of the best
and wisest men the world lias ever seen
to promote and secure the happiness of all
within its dominion.
Mr. Ingham then goes on to show that
the election of 1852 was carried on under
compact from both political parties, that
there should be no future agitation pf the
slavery question; that Pierce was elected
under the inf uence of this "imposing com
pact," and tLat the President elect, "when
about to make his appeal to God as a wit
ness to the sincerity of his oath of fidelity
to his trust, pledged himself to the whole
American people that his power would be
exerted to prevent all further agitation of
this distracting and dangerous question."
The words of Ingham should bum into
the soul of Pierce, as he reads what that
old Jackson veteran says of that vow and
its violation, viz:
Can any one conceive of a pledge more
solemn, or that could have lieen made
more irrevocably binding, than this, volun
tarily agreed upon by all parties, and uni
versally approved as a great measure of
public good and great national blessing.
The promise of Uharles 1 to maintain
the right of petition, the violation of which
cost him his head, could not compare in
imposing solemnity with that which Pres
ident Pierce made on the 4th of March,
Can the history be credited that will re
cord the fact that, in less than nine months
from that time, he had engaged in a con
spiracy to accomplish, in its most obnox
ious form, what he had thus promised to
resist: : That he not only used his official
power to eftect the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise, and carry slavery into Kan
sas by lawless violence, but that he enter
ed into a conspiracy for that purpose, is
susceptible of incontrovertible proof.
Mr. Ingham then gives a succinct and
scathing history of the repeal of the Mis
souri Compromise; Atchison's movements
Kansas in denouncing Reeder, and of
Pierce's removal of that Governor in obe
dience to Atchison's demands; the remo
val of one Territorial Judge and the ap
pointment of Lecompte, "whose name will
fill a niche in American history similar to
the one occupied by the notorious Jeffreys
English history"; the passage of laws
"which, like those of Draco, might be said
be written in blood" ; Pierce's denuncia
tion of the Topeka Constitution as trea
sonable, although adopted by the same
usage under which the people of nine ter
ritories have organized State governments;
the arrest and imprisonment for months of
some of the inhabitants of Kansas, refusing
them bail under a falso charge' of treason;
the authority given Shannon to employ
United States forces to make "the arbitra
ry arrests, after the manner of those who
once filled the Bast ile of Paris"; the em
ployment of "foreign brigands under the
masked title of enrolled militia," to block
ade the great highway of the West; the
indictment and destruction of printing offi
and a hotel, an act "done in imitation
tho Draco, who sentenced a statue to be
banished for having fallen upon a mnn";
tho sacking of Lawrence; the robbery,
banishment and murder of the Kansas
settlers by the prowling brigands from tho
Blue Lodges; the insult of the President
replying to the remonstrances of these
settlers, by telling them to mind their own
business and not meddle so much with
those "sacred laws," &c &c
These facta, fsavs Mr. Inrrlinml conof i-
lute but a small part of the indisputablo
evidence that might be adduced to estab
lish the charge of the conspiracy of certain
uigu luncuonanes oi our national govern
ment, to interpolate a new and - false con
struction of the Federal Constitution, upon
point of fearful and vital interest; to ac
complish which solemn pledges have been
violated, and means employed in which the
great principles of democratic government
have been wholly contemned and disre
garded, and an actual coup d'etat attempt

Mr. Ingham then concludes as follows
Mr. .Buchanan stands upon the same
platform with Franklin Pierce, and is so
pledged by his supporters to cany out his
measures, and especially the plot of . the
conspirators, to use the Constitution of the
United States to carry slavery into and
drive settlers out of all the territories; but
unless he possess the heroic nature of
Regulus, he cannot respond to the de
mands of a free democracy.
Mr-. Fillmore is probably a well-disposed
gentleman; I know nothing against him
except his recognition of the rights of cer
tain States to revolt if they should be de
feated at the polls, or if he did not mean
revolt, as he did not. use the words, he
must have thought of a coup d'etat, as has
since been suggested by Chevalier Brooks.
of South Carolina. - Some of his friends
seem to have a vague idea of his powers
of compromise, but, has any one ventured
to suggest tho terms. Neither side will
concede an inch to such terms. It is
settled point that Kansas must be given
np cither to slavery or freedom, r.nd who
pretends to guess what Mr. Fillmore would
do on such a question ! ' -
Of Col remont I haxe still less to say,
It is asserted that he is too young and in
experienced. As to the first objection he
is even bevond the age when the ablest
and most successful men the world has ev
er seen began their achievements. As to
the second, he will require only a clear
dead, a disciplined mind, a' steady hand.
an honest and stout heart, to do all the
nation can demand of him. All these qual
ities have been accorded to him by impar
tial opponents. We have then the fullest
assurance in his history of their reality.
Thus armed, and standing on a platform
of simple construction, founded on a rock,
unencumbered by any delusive architectu
ral abstractions, and supported by an un
flinching phalanx of free Democracy and
staunch Republicanism, if I have any judg
ment of the causes which most effectively
operate on the minds of Americans, ho
will be triumphantly elected, and as tri
umphantly lead this Republic onward to
its glorious destiny. -
And now comes another of the old
Democratic guard, in the person of the
venerable William J. Duane, who also was
Secretary of the Treasury under Jackson,
and who at a meeting of Democrats in
Philadelphia, assembled on Thursday last,
to form a Democratic Fremont Club, is
reported as follows: . r '
About sixty years ago he stood in the
same room in which the meeting was now
held, and saw General Washington deliv
ering the seals of his omce to his successor.
He spoke of the Republican and Democrat
ic school in which he had been brought.
up. lie was educated as a printer, and
the first article he set up was Washington's
Farewell Address. From that moment he
learned the principles which ever after
governed his life. He had been twenty-
three years out of public life, but a strong
sense of duty seemed to call him again to
the post he bad maintained in his youth,
He had not attended a political meeting
for nearly a quarter of a century, and per-
naps it was this which made him teel so
deeply impressed at the present time. Mr.
u. spoke at some length, and was enthusi
astically applauded. The room was dense
ly crowded, and many were unable to ob
tain admission. ,
After Mr. Duanc's speech, a Club was
formed the organization of which was
signed by Mr. Duana as the first name,
and followed . by other Democrats, who
pledged themselves to the support of. Fre
mont and Dayton as the candidates of a
party which is the true exponent of Jeffer
son and Jackson upon the slavery question.
Verily the battle cry among the men who
took their lesson upon Freedom from Jef
ferson and Jackson, is : Up, Guards, and
OL1 ideas, like
old clothes, put
away, come out again after a time
almost as good as new.-
THE PLAIN DEALER'S UNBIASED
OPINION OF JAMES BUCHANAN.
"The small and malignant clique who
wear the name of James Buchanan on their
collars, are endeavoring to sell the Democ

the feouth Carolina traitors. James Bu
chanan never was elected by the people to
any office except when ho was a r ederalist.

of one-third of the people for any office. And

basest kind of political machinery, he has
been able for years past, to crush the Dem
ocratic party of this Btav, (Pennsylvania)
hang about his neck like a millstone to
Kill every progressional thought in its bo
som. He and his tools virtually gave the
State to Taylor in 1848, and if "Bigler is

may charge it to James Buchanan, who,

the Sailor, now hangs on Bigler's neck."

Shannon vs. Pierce.
Here is sport, here are combattants
well matched. Ex-Governor Shannon,
through seven weary columns of the St
Clairsville Gazette, addressed tho "Amer
ican Public," displaying the contemptible
littleness of his character in every paragraph,
and arrays Frank Pierce upon tne charge
'treachery. The Ex-Governor accounts
his removal from the fact that Pierce
"under the influence of the Free Soilers."
The Ex-Governor also complains that he
has been accused of drunkenness, and re
fuse to Sheriff Joiies as one who will testi
fy to his upright habits while in Kansas !
what a hero is Willsing Shanning!
Bullet Truths. Henry WardBoech
er, talks straight to the mark. In his Tab
ernacle speech he said :.
God has furnished us with this question

you please, but every vote for Buchanan
and Fillmore goes straight as ever a rifle
went to the hearts of liberty, and every vote
you cast for Fremont is a bullet into the

The notorious Francis J. Grund, pretty
well known as a Washington letter writer,
is or has been making Buchanan speeches
in Indiana and Illinois. He is a Duchman,
and unquestionably as corrupt and unprin
cipled a rascal as ever lived. He has some
talent, but in the minds of all who know
him or his reputation, his name is synony
