' Ssiuts. Mr. Hamlin, of Maine, Asked
to be released from his position as chair
toan of the Committee on Commerce. Ho
made ft few remarks, saying, that since the
endorsement, by the Cincinnati Convention,
of the measures which hare led to the out
rages in Kansas, ho could bold no further
political fellowship with the authors. Re
quest agreed to.
Butlor is now replying to Sumner. The
galleries are crowded.
Mr. Butler expressed the opinion that
Sumner's speech was condemned by the
country. He said it was nlled witu gross
personal calumnies on him, and there was
nothing in it to distinguish it from all
Sumner's other Abolition speeches. It was
characterized by indecency and falsehood.
Butler sternly condemned the Legislature
of Massachusetts for the passage of resolu
tions in the matter, and understood the
circumstances of the case, and excused his
relative, Brook's conduct.

The Acceptance of Mr. Fillmore.
Wo are of those who believed that Mr.
Fillmore would decline tho nomination ten
dered him by the pro-slavery wing of tho
Know Nothing party. As a Northern con
servative man it appeared impossible to as
sent to the platform upon which his ac
ceptance would placo him, it being thorough
ly Southern, and sanctioning the repeal of
tho Missouri Compromise.
But the telegraph informs ns that he has
accepted, and a day or two will give us his
reasons for so doing. Whatever those reas
ons may be, tho influence which his accept
ance will havo upon tho coming struggle,
can bo easily seen, even at this part in the
campaign. Mr. Fillmore's strength, as he
is now situated, lies wholly at tho South,
and there he will make a good run. There
fore it will help the Republican cause just
as Mr. Van Kuren, in '44, aided the Whig
cause; only transferring tho field of that in
fluence from the North to tho South.
Mr. Fillmore's frionds aro confident of
his success in Kentucky, in Maryland, in
Doleware, and. believe he can carry Tennes
see, and even entertain hopes of his success
in Virginia. At the North we cannot con
ceive that he will damago tho Republican
cause, as those who can accept the South
American platform, would, in tho event of
nis declination, refrain from voting, or cast
their votes for Mr. Buchanan.
Instead therefore of lessening the chances
of Republican success, we are sanguine that
the running of Mr. Fllmoro will increase
them. Cleve. Herald.
That Economical Legislature.
- Wo proved, two weeks ago, that tho ex
penses of the State, between the fusion
and Locofoco administration amounts to
about TWO AND A HALF MILLIONS,
in favor of the economy of the Fusionists.
1 he slack Locofoco sheet, of this place,
merely repeats the statement we havo refu
ted, and adds another of his correct calcu
lations, here it is :
"The whole cost of the printing, kc, for this session
will he MO,000! But this leirislature has only taken a re

Black Locofoco sheet asserted that the ex

$1 00,000,00, and thereupon ho comes down
to our figures, but adds the Stale Printing!
This however does not do, for still it falls
short of ihoper diem of the locofoco legis
lature ! Ho therefore takes a dcw track,
wonderfully acute; and prophecies what
tho expenses of the next session are to be,
and adds them to his statement of the last
Republican Legislature, and then balance
tho two against tho per diem of one ses

The Great "Unsettled."
James Buchanan is the man that never
settled anything. Ho 501110(1 down a Fed
eralist in early life, but his connections
becoming unsettled, ho turned out a full
fledged Democrat. As a diplomatist he
undertook to "settlo" the Oregon controversy
by holding out "54 40" as "clear and un
questionable," but his claim in that busi
ness, was awfully "unsettled" by the accept
ance of 8omo five degrees less. Ho went
to England, but "settled" nothing. Ho
came away leaving everything unsettled.
He triod to, but did not, settle tho enlist
ment dispute. Ho did not settle the Cen
tral American question. He did not settle
the disputed arbitration of the Clayton Bul
wer Treaty. In short bo settled nothing.
Altogether, ho has never settled anything,
at home or abroad. and we don't believe
ho ever will. X. Y. Express.

An Honest Man.
Hamlin, of Maine, arose in his
place in the U. S. Senate, a few days since,
and asked leave to resign bis chairmanship
of the committee on commerce ; giving as
a reason that sinco tho endorsement of the
repeal of the Missouri Compromise by tho
Cincinnati Convention, ho could no longer
act with tho Democratic party, but should
henceforth do all in his power to secure its
Last Night's Jubilee.
On hearing; the result of the Philadelphia, National Re
publican Convention, in the nomination of JOHN C. FRE
MONT, for President, and WILLIAM L. DAYTON, of -N.
J for Vice President, it was resolved to hare a jubilee in
the evening. Croghax's old Aram, which speaks for all
parties, but a little louder when speaking in Freedom's
cause, called the crowd together. Some 400 or 500 men
gathered on the corner of Front St. and the Pike, a huge
bonfire was built and the speaking commenced. H. Ev
erett, Esq., Dr P. Bractard, Rev. G. R. Brows, R. P.
BrcKLAND, Esq., nd Hon. L. Gelfi.t, each made short but
pointed speeches for Freedom, and tbe aominees of the
convention. Every thing passed off finely; the nomina
tions were well received, and the friends of freedom more
determined to work and trinmph. The gun was well
manned, talked in earnest; and was in charge of the boys.
The fire is stiU burning this morning, and ite spirit wiU
not be quenched until the new and Republican administra
$3T The Messenger's report of tho do
ings at tho ratification meeting, June 7th,
would make a tiger titter. Tho eloquence
of this production, is only equalled by its
grammar. Its title is, "What they done in
Fremont,'' fec. The man who wrote that
Buchanan was nominated by exclamation,
tho only man who is capable of such a
burst of eloquence as this. Why should
such a genius be trammelled by tho petty
rules of grammar. One with tho fear of
Murray and Webster before his eyes would
havo written, "What they did in Fremont,"
&c., but this writer cares as littlo for gram
mar as ho does for truth and decency. He
mentions all the speakers except Mr. Flaugh
er, the editor of tho Democrat. This omis
sion is the smallest aud weakest meanness
that tho world has yet seen. If any man
ever does a smaller thing he will only suc
ceed by taking lessons of tho Messenger.
But while tho other speakers aro barely
mentioned, G. W. Glick, Esq., is reported
at length. Tho original and brilliant idea
of tho sameness of, democracy in the past
and the present was his theme. This was
tho hobby on which poor Gov. Medill rode
during List fall's campaign, and broke down.
The Governor weighed two hundred or more,
but as George and his eloquence aro not
weighty, perhaps with good care, tho hobby
may carry him and bis fortunes through this
tsv" We observe that the Messengerund Democrat are
the most intimate terms-of brotherly love, their hearts
overflow with afloction for each other and their walk
blissful as that of a girl of sixteen, with an accepted lov
er's arm encircling her waisfc; on a moonlight evening.
Things havo assumed a different shape,
brother Gray, and their walk is not so
"blissful." There is no "encircling arm"
now, but if you watch closely, you will see
instead, the gleaming blade concealed with
in the folds of that friendly-seeming cloak,
ready for tho fatal thrust. The Democrat,
for several weeks, poured out its vials of
wrath upon the heads of tho "disorgauizers,"
which they said not a word. Tho Dem
ocrat is now silent, and this silence is om
inous. Wo havo heard that a price was
paid, but did not learn tho nmount. The
conductors of tho Messenger have never in
timated through their sheet that such a pa
per as tho 5aiiy democrat was puD-
lished in the county, and wo tully believe
that one-half of tho democracy of the coun
ty aro of tho opinion that tho Democrat has
been discontinued. The Messenger issued
call for a ratification meeting, on tho nom
ination of President and Vice President,
signed by some furty democrats, but the
editor of the Democrat was not permitted
havo his name there. But when tho vast
multitudc(75 democrats, 50 republicans and
200 boys, three-fourths of whom were repub
licans) assembled the editor of tho Democrat
was on tho ground and made a speech, as
did the editor of the Messenger, and the
name of every speaker, except tho editor of
the Democrat, was mentioned in the Mcs
senqer's report. Was it a mistake, or an
intended insult? Rumor says that the
Democrat is soon to be discontinued, and
that the editor will go to another field to
enlighten tho people in tho doctrines of
squatter-sovereignty, and domonstrato that
slavery should bo national.

THE CHEATING PARTY.
Tho sham democracy, or rather its lead
ers, have laid out for tho Presidential cam
paign of 1856, a grand schemo of fraud.
They havo staked success upon their power
to cheat the people. Tho ono principle
which defines sham democracy in this day,
is to support tho repeal of the Missouri
compromiso and tho Kansas Nebraska bill
with all their consequences. The history of
modern democracy goes back no farther
than the origin of these measures, and hero
will wo begin to show that it is such a sys
tem of fraud as will entitle tho party sup
porting it to the namo of tho cheating party.
Tho pretence under which tho Missouri
compromiso was repealed was a cheat.
Douglas and his co-laborers in this work of
iniquity claimed that the repeal was a result
of tho compromiso measures of 1850; that
indeed tho repeal was necessary in order to
carry out those measures. But no man who
was concerned in passing the compromises
of 1850, ever dreamed that they involved
the repeal of tho greater compromise of
1820. Douglas and his co-rcpcalers, as if
tho very knowledge of truth had been lost
with a regard for it, placed this barefaced
lie in the fore-front of tho repealing meas
Tho purpose and design of tho Kansas
bill was a cheat. The apostate democrats
who passed it, said its purpose was to make
Kansas a free state, but while this foul fraud
was on their tongues tho world know that
without tho Kansas bill that territory must
be free. At the same timo tho whole South
was voting for this bill in order to make
Kansas a slave state. They now claim
that the bill was intended to make it a slave
state, and that it was divided from Nebras
ka in order to throw it more completely in
to the power of the Missourians. Recent
events have branded tho lie, with wbich
Douglas and his fellow traitors urged the
bill, ineffaceably upon their brazen fore
I he passage ot the Kansas bill . was a
cheat worthy of tho blacklegs who origin
ated it. It was passed in tho name of the
people of tho United States, but no single
citizen asked for such a measure ; no man
petitioned for tho repeal of tho Missouri
compromise ; and so thoroughly convinced
of the public sentiment against repeal, were
tho villians who concocted the scheme, that
they dare not wait till a new election of
members of Congress could tako place, but
under party discipline forced the measure
The whole action of tho general govern
ment in executing tho Kansas bill has been
stupendous cheat. Kb possible chance
has been given to freedom. Such tools of
slavery as Lccompto the Judge, Donald
son tho Marshal, and Shannon the
Governor, havo ruled Kansas in tho inter
ests of slavery. Tho moment Reeder was
found favorable to freedom ho was removed.
The U. S. troops havo been shut up in their
forts, and Donaldson the Marshal, and Jones
tho sheriflj have been permitted to execute
tho writs of an infernal court, by tho aid of
still more infernal mob. The results are
seen in cities sacked, villages plundered,
buildings burned, citizens murdered, and
tho universal reign of terror.
Tho leaders of the sham democracy as
semble in Cincinnati in June, 1856, and en
dorse this whole series of cheats and villian
ies in tho name of tho people, and this en
dorsement is another cheat. . They know
that tho peoplo condemn tho whole vast
scheme of fraud. They know that even
their own followers do not approve it. They
admitted this fact more plaiuly than words
can do, when they dropped Douglas, who
concocted the crime, and Pierce, who exe
Even tho convention's own endorsement
of the cheats and crimes of Pierce and Doug
las was itself a cheat. Tho northern dele
gates to the Cincinnati convention, as was
well known in that city, would gladly have
cast the works of Douglas and Pierce over
board as they did the men. But how then
was tho southern voto to bo secured for
the democratic candidate ?
The nomination of Buchanan was a cheat.
Its intent is to carry on the measures of
Pierco and Douglas, or rather of the south
ern slave drivers whose tools they are, with
the namo of a man who had no hand in
their measures. They believe that by
casting overboard Pierce and Douglas, the
people will bo induced to belicvo that their
works have gone with them ; and by taking
up a new man they hope to persuade the
peoplo that they mean to tako up a new lino
Tho plan of tho campaign is a cheat.
The leaders of sham democracy impious
baptizo themselves national, ana with
this word they hope to win. But what kind
nationality is there in that democracy
which has no hope of carrying a single
northern stato by tho force of its principles.
it carries Pennsylvania it will only be by
the help of stato pride in placing a citizen
of its own in the presidential chair. This
national democracy, so far as any real lovo
its measures aro concerned, is confined to
tho South. Shall tho cheating party win!
JOSIAII QUINCY OS THE SuMNEB OUTRAGE.
Tho following sketch of the remarks of
Hon. Josiah Quincy, sr., at the indignation
meeting in Quincy, Mass. :
"Already, eighty-five years, and standing on the brink

from undtT me, what I have to aay is the pure promptiop

blow aimed purposely at the North. It was a mowstnicE

mistaken. It savs "to us that Northern men shall not be
heard in the halis of Congress, except at the peril of the
bowie-knife, the bludgeon and rerolver. Nor ia this any
"The bludgeon, heretofore only brandished, has at last
been brom;ht down, and now is the time for the North to

his name will be enrolled with the names of Warren. Sid

"J. Q. Adams one said to me, the characteristics of
southern representatives are hownesR, n'ancBaaeBs ana
desperation; while the characteristics of the northern
representatives have always been dog timidity aud fear.
And well tht Sdutta knows it.
'If we do not act now, the chances may never ajfftin re

What really are tho opinions of James
Buchanan on the slavery question ? Has he
any opinions that may be considered "set

of opinions, to-day, another set, to-morrow,
something else. The Cincinnati plat

Butler was in full view of the whole house, and acted so
badly that it took the whole attention of Senator Hunter
of Virginia, and another person on the other side whom
I did not know.to keep him from disturbing the au:iLnce.
I sat no near him a part of the thne that 1 could hear hia

The "Post" then turns round and "spits

THE AMERICAN CONVENTION.
This body of men composed of the anti-
Fillraore portion of the American party, as
sembled in "New York, on the 1 2th, and or
ganized by electing R. T. Conrad, of Phila
delphia, President; one Vice-President froin
each state represented, and four Secretaries.
The delegates were decidedly for Freedom,
and wished to do nothing that would iu the
least trammel the action of the Republican
Convention which met in Philadelphia on
Tuesday. They however made a nomina
tion of Banks, for President, and Johnson,
of Pa for Vice-President. These nominees
will undoubtedly decline. Tho Convention
will take further action after the result of
tho Philadelphia Convention is known.
The delegates from New Jersey, and a
portion of those from Pennsylvania, with
drew and formed another Convention, nomi
nating Corn. Stockton for President, and
Raynor, of N. C. for Vico-President. We
now lixk to Philadelphia with great hope.
The fallowing are tho resolutions
adopted unanimously and with great cheer
ing, by tho American Convention, as re
ported by Mr. Geo. Law, Chairman:
Jiefolced, That this Convention proceeds to indicate, by
a series nf halhiting'. thi-ir prpf'Tftice tor persons to be
placeti in nomination tor candidates for the Presidency
and Vice Prvf-idency cf the Vnited States.
Resolved. That the persons who shall receive the rotes
of a majority of the members of this Convention, in said
balloting, for eitherof said offices, be declared the choice
of this convention for the nominees of gaid offices.
Resolved, That when such preturencci shall be ascrr
tainedby the result of said ballotings, a Committee, con
sisting of one from each stiite, be appointed to confer with
said proposed nominee, and also with the Convention
that meets in Philadelphia on the 1 Tth inst, with regard
to stirh nominations.
Rrolredt Th.it this Convention continue in sessiow
during the coming week, until the said committee report.

Where is the enthusiasm for Buchanan?
Every bodv is looking for the upheaving of the people ,
in their jubilant glee at the nomination of Buchanan.-1
But they look in vain. His nomination, save in a few of '
the cities where a pound of powder wiU draw a crowd at ,
one minutes's notice, has fallen like a stone, and without
sending up even a bubble from the pool of popular sym-
pathv. We trave an honest account of tbe ratification
meeting in this citv, and wc are told that the attempt at
Columbus was a still more emnhatie fat lure. In truth, at
the first jrttherinir, only thirty were present, and a post
ponement was effected; at the second attempt some sev
enty people rallied, and another postponement was the
consequence "Three times and out" will nrobablv be the
finale of the great ratification at the heart of the Stat.

and when they move with energy and spirit, everything
yields before them.
