Ington. torrents of personal abuse were
poured out by the .Democratic party vpon
kit head.
They openly charged tho father of his
country with an intention of destroying his
own beloved offspring. To such a pitch of
ingratitude were they carry BY J.IIEIK
DIABOLICCAL PASSION, that they
dared publicly, and without the slightest
foundation, to accuse him of secretly p'tt-
ting his hand into the treasury like a felon,
and appropriating, without authority, the
money of the nation to his own individual
use. That man, w hoso you tn tiaa peen
worn out in those splendid military achieve
ments which made our country independent,
and whose age and experience had boon de-
Toted to the creation and organization of
the federal government that a man who
had never received one farthing more of
the public money than had been expended
in the public service, was accused of being
a base peculator of the public treasure.
During; this crued persecution his noble
mind felt sensibly the stings of his country
men's ingratitude. In the bitterness of his
soul ho had been abused, to use his own
emphatical language, in "such exaggerated
and indecent terms, as could scarcely be ap
plied to a Nero a notorious defaulter1 or
even to a common pickpocket"

Slavery Extension and Border Ruffianism
Openly Indorsed by the Cincinnati
Convention.
FREEMEN, READ!!
Heretofore, it has been tho policy of the
"Nigger Diffusion" Democracy to cover up
and keep out of view in the Northern States
the policy of their party, viz : tho Extension
of Slavery and the justification of Missouri
Border Ruffianism. The Cincinnati Na
tional Convention has, however thrown off
tho mask, and that party now stands, be
fore the country "in all its naked ugliness,"
the open, undisguised advocates of, and
apologists for Slavery extension and Bor
der Ruffianism. j
. Upon the question of the admission of
the New York Hards or Softs to seats in
that body, there was a majority and a mi
nority report from the committee on Cre
dentials, to whom that matter was referred.
Tho minority report was adopted by the
convention. In that report a reason is giv
en why the Softs should not be entitled to
seats. Let us see what the reason is : Af
"ter receiving the history of both factions,
and pronounciag the Hards simon-pure, the
minority report thus disposed of the case
of the Softs:
- "The political faith of a party can only
be fairly deduced from the principles prefer
red and measures recognized and approved in
its party resoluuons,whether State or Nation
al and therefore, from tho "accordance of
the principles, as announced in their resolu
tions, with the creed of tho Natioual De
mocracy, must the rights of either - Hards
or softs, to be esteemed National Democrats
and entitled to seats in a National Conven
tion, be determined.
- The convention of the softs was held at
Syracuse on the 29th of the 6amo month
of August. The two following resolutions
passed at that convention evince too unmis
takeably the then predominance of free
soil sentiments in tho soft section, to be de
nied or evaded :
"Resolved, That, while the Democracy of
this State will faithfully adhere to all the
compromises of the Constitution, and main
tain all the reserved rights of tho btates,
they doem this an appropriate occasion to
declare their fixed hostility to tho extension
of Slavery into free territory. .
"Resolved, That we regard tho organi
sation of bands of armed borderers, and
their admission into the territory of Kan
sas not as bona fide settlers, but fur the for
cible subversion of the rights of its legal
electors, not only as a violation of the peace
of tho Union and the rights of tho cora
muuity assailed, but as distinctly subversive
of the intent of Congress, as declared in
. the bill organizing the said territories to
have the people perfectly free to form and
regulate their own domestic institutions in
their own way, subject oi ly to tho Consti
tution of tho United States; and that all
power of the governments should be exer
ted to redress these outrages, and vindicate
the rights of the people thereof."
With these resolutions, so entirely op
posed to tho democracy of tho Union, the
Softs went into the election of 1855, and
must as a party organization be considered
as then contending for the principles thoy
professed. If tho delegates of tho Softs
had been appointed at the Convention, it
might be left to tho opinion of this Nation
al Convention to decide without argument
whether a delegation appointed by a party
announcing such a political creed would
have been entitled to admission. - Had no
change taken place in the party creed of
the soft section of tho Democracy, subse
quent to August, 1S55, it is scarcely to be
doubted that tho committee on Creden
tials would have unauinwrsly rejected their
claims to seats in tho National Convention.
' ' These two resolutions are called the un
pardonable sin ! What do they assert?
Let us see :
First, That the softs of New York are
opposed to the "Extension of Slavery" into
Free Territory : and
' Secondly, That they are opposed to or
ganization of bands of Missouri Border
Ruffians, for the purpose of driving the le
gal voters of Kansas from tho polls, and
usurping their rights and franchises, and
further, that they think the Geneial Govern
ment should exert all its power to prevent
such outrages upon the civil righU of the
people of Kansas.
- These resolutions mean nothing more
nor less than this, and yet tho Nigger Dif
fusion Convention at Cincinnati has declar
ed that they are "ENTIRELY OPPOSED
to ths DEMOCRACY of tub UNION."'
and should shut out tho softs from all par
ticipation in the doings of that body !
Who will havo impudenco enough hero
after to. assert that the Locofoco party are
opposed to slavery extension and Border
Ruffianism! Wo shall see.
If anybody doubts that such a report
was made to and adopted by tho Locofoco
National Convention, wo refer them to the
Cincinnati Enquirer of Juno 6. Green
ville Journal. ' '

Congressional.
Washington, June 21.
House Burlingame defended Massachu
setts against several specific charges, claim
ing that in all that constitutes true greatness
sho was the first State, and her present per
formances are superior to her past patriotic
resolutions. He was sorry to find at the
head of her list of assailants the President
of tho U. S., who had deliberately perverted
history, eulogized the South at tho expense
i of the North. In conclusion he referred to
j Sumner's speech. Tho nobleness of its
sentiments and the severity of its strictures
against tyranny. Sumner, uo said, never
had a personal enemy, as puro as tho snow
which falls on his native hills, and his heart
overflowing with kindness for every human
being, bearing tho upright form of a man,
ho is an accomplished scholar and a gentle
man. A member of the House who had
taken an oath to support tho Constitution,
stole into the Senate and smote him as Caiu
smote his brother.
Mr. Keith It is false! Sensation.
Mr. Burlingame replied ho would not
bandy epithets, but was responsible for his
language only, and doubtless the gentleman
was responsible for his.
Mr. Keith I am.
Mr. Burlingame, after describing, and se
verely condemning the assault, asked, Call
you that chivalry f In what codo of honor
do you get authority for it ? If we are not
to have freedom of speech, what is all
this Government worth? If wo arc to be
called to account by some gallant nephew
of sorao gallant uncle for saying something
that does not suit their sensitive nerves,
wo want to know it. If tho conflict is to be
transferred from this useful anil intellectual
field, where the honors aro equal and easy,
wo want to know it. The time may come
when Massaehuscts may -withdraw her rep
resentatives to her own bosom, when safety
cannot bo found under tho flag of our coun
try, but while her representatives are here
they will sieak how aud as they will.uncaring
for the consequences, and if they aro press
ed too long and too far, they will not shrink
from defending tho commonwealth of M;iss
achusetts and tho freedom of speech.
Mr. Keith now sought the floor, but it
was awarded to Mr. Carlisle, who refused
to yield.
Mr. Keith gave notice that on Monday he
should reply to somo of the points of Mr.
Burlingame's speech.
Mr. Carlisle condemned the resolutions of
tho Cincinnati convention, as, ho said, the
filibustering platform of tho Democrats.
Fremont would not receive the vote of any
district except that represented by Mr. Gid
dings. Tho contes t is between Mr. Fill
more, tho candidate of tho national party,
and Mr. Buchanan, who is supported by fac
tions. Mr. Washburn, of Me., urged the necess
ity of a union of the opponents of tho Ad
ministration auc'. those averso to tho exten
tion of slavery :'n tho Territories. Ho then
examined tho platform of tho Cincinnati
convention in connection with the principles
and nntccdents of Mr. Buchanan with the
Democratic party. He said it was an inex
pressible relief to emerge from tho dark
and foetid atmosphere, reeking with shame
and wrong, into the clear light and health
ful breezes of Truth and Liberty. He
spoke of Mr. Fremont as the standard bear
er of Freedom in this contest, as a strong
and true man, whoso aim it would be to
maintain the principles of the constitution,
and bring back the government to the policy
of Washington and Jcfl'erson.' Mr. Wash
burn triumphed in this faith, nay in the un
doubting conviction that tho proceedings of
tho Republican Convention will be sustain
ed by a large majority of tho American peo
ple. i

Young Men's Ratification Conventions
in Ohio.
We understand, says tho Cincinnati Gaz
ette, that the young men from Ohio, in at
tendance upon the Republican Convention,
met after the adjournment of that body and
agreed to hold four great trass meetings of
the Republican youth of Ohio, during the
campaign. The call for tho first of these
was prepared and signed, and will bo pub
lished as soon as tho time can bo fixed, for
which purpose a conference between the
committee appointed by tho young men at
Philadelphia and tho State Republican
Executive Committeo is necessary.
The first convention will bo held at the
city of Dayton, sometime during July, prob
ably; tho others aro designed to follow in
rapid succession at Fremont, Zanesville and
Massillon.
"Nigger Worshipers."
In the choice vocabulary of tho Messen
ger, the above term figures interchangeably
with "black republicans.'' But some how
that erudite shcetfinds it hard work to make
out that republicans are "nigger worship
ers" after all. It thinks that to go in for
the admission of Kansas with the Topeka
constitution, which shuts negroes out of the
state, is not consistent Ye don't like the
exclusion ourselves. The principle is a bad
one, but wo think it far better to have the
negroes shut out altogether, than to admit
them only to mate them slaves. If we
must choose, we confess we prefer the title
nigger worshipers to nigger enslavers.
A PICTURE.
Won't somo one get up a picture accord
ing to a notion of ours. What wo want is
a huge, black car, labelled SLAVERY,
drawn by a crowd of dough-faces, like the
editor of the Messenger. In tho car aro a
gantj of slaves iu chains for tho Kansas
market. On the box sits Buchanan, a whip
in ono hand, and in the other, a ten cent
piece, which ho holds out admiringly to the
workies who are going to vote for him, cry
ing, "see the price of a day's labor in that
'good timo coming.' n
Who'll got it up.
j; We believe the expulsion of Mr. Rrooka will he
rrprored by South Carolina, by some unequivocal and em
phatic expression of concern for his insulted diirnity.
Perhaps she m.-ty withdraw her deletmtinn from t'onfrress.
She has the pride and tlie spirit to adopt some such ener
getic measures of resentment. Richmond Enquirer.
Let her slide ! South Carolina, insignifi
cant as sho is with her three-fifths slave
population, has given this Union more
trouble than any other element in our gov
ernment; and it would bo a blessing if tho
miserablo commonwealth, "nigger-drivers"
and all would quit tho confederacy. We
should liko to seo her starved into decency.

,
The Presidential Campaign of 185C is
now fairly opened. There is no lack of
candidates. The South Americans lave
Fillmore and Donaldson in tho field. The
Democracy present Buchanan and Brecken
riilge. Tho Republicans have nominated
j Fremont and Dayton. The North Ameri
cans namo Fremont and Johnson. The
ultra Abolitionists will run Gerrit Smith
and somebody else whom wo have forgot
ten. '"'
It is clear, however, that this campaign
is to be fought out between Fremont and
Buchanan. The other candidates may ap
pear in the field, but it will only bo at the
head of guerrilla bands; while the hosts that
march under the leadership of Fremont and
Buchanan, will form the mighty columns of
infantry, cavalry and artillery, whoso onset
will make tho earth tremble.' as with the
shock of doom. A few impracticablcs will
throw away their votes on other candidates,
but the great body of voters will rote for
or against tho nationalization of slavery ; !
and they will see to vote yes on the ques
tion they must voto for Buchanan; to vote
no they must voto for Fremont.
Let us take a birdseye view of the two
great armies that are now marshaling for
the great contest Tho party which blas
phemously styles itself democratic, num
bers first and foremost in its ranks 330,000
slaveholders, with theiroverseers, their slave
traders, and dependents. There are doubt
less thousands of whites at tho south, who
own no slaves, and who would gladly vote
against the spread of slavery if they could
or dared. But so firmly are they bound by
tho ties of business dependence, and so
thoroughly are thev subdued by the terror of
tho bludgeon, the pistol and the bowie knife,
that tho vote of the south almost entire will
bo "iven where it will tell for tho extension
of slavery; that is for tho blasphemous de
mocracy. The great strength of Samson
lay not more surely in his hair, than that
of the democracy does iu the 330,000 slave
holders. Take away these and those they
govern through interest .or fear, and the
nominations of the blasphemous democracy
could not carry ten thousand votes in the
United States. This fact of itself writes
vi'uinny and shameless hypocrisy on tho very
front of every demnswue, who asserts that
the blasphemous democracy is not pro-slavery.
But to go on with our review of the
army of slavery. The 330,000 slavehold
ers can carry tho whole south. They have
also at tho north an army of apostates, com
posed of thoso who now hold office under
tho general government or wish to do so,
and who will sell themselves for a mess of
pottaga to tlio slaveholders or the devil.
These are the doughfaces wo read of. Af
ter these conic a class of men whoso party
prejudice is great and whose knowledge is
small. The- follow wherever they see the
word democracy, never troubling themselves
to inq lire whether tho thing itself is pres
ent or absent. With the help of these
northern allies, who constitute but a small
minority in the northern states, Htlie blas
phemous democracy, with the whole south
to back it hopes to win. '
The army of freedom, as it has been in
all ages, so it is now a mixed multitude).
It acknowledges no single name, wears no
man's livery, is clothed iu no harmonious
uniform, and carries no stereotyped arms.
Its members have been whigs, democrats,
freesoilers, Americans, but now and for the
timdthey aro republicans. They hold them
selves bound by no party ties, but will up
hold the republican organization till it has
accomplished its end. They aro not united
by the cohesive power of public plunder.

ONCE A DEMOCRAT.
Tho Sandusky Mirror, edited by our
former townsman, C. J Ortos, Esq., thinks
it in bad taste for republicans to say that
Fremont is a democrat. Tho Mirror may
rest assured that tho republicans care very
littlo altout the antecedents of ftnv Ann nf
.
its nominees or members. If it is mention-
,
ed that IremOnt Or any Other leading
republican is a democrat it is done to show
1 '
that there IS nOW a question at ISSUe POW-
, . , ,
erlul enough to draw men away from old
associations; that in fact among republicans,
party is of little account . The Mirror labors
through a leading editorial to show
that tho right way is to stick to tho democ
racy "with all its faults." The quoted words
are tho Mirror's and italicised at that
But what if the democratic partv, or the
men who assume to lead it, havo departed
wholly from tho ancient democracy; what if
they are pledged to nse the whole power of
their organization, and of tho government
also if they are successful, to extend slave
ry and abridge freedom ?
That this is the position of the democracy
this day, ono clear, undeniable fact proves
with overwhelming power, viz: that the
330,000 slaveholders will carry tho whole
south for the democratic nominees. The
slaveholders know well which party will
serve their ends. Now, shall honest, free
domdoving democrats stick to party orsin
ization "with all its faults," and by so doing
band themselves with all the slaveholders of
the Union to extend tho accursed svstem of
hnnian slavery? No! we thank God that
there are democrats like J. C. Fremont and
F. P. Blair, and thousands of humbler
name, who will not stick to such democracy
as the Cincinnati convention have set forth.
The hope ami glory of tho nation is that
there is a vast body of men, every day in
creasing, who will not be bound by party
ties, but will vote where truth, righteous
ness and liberty lead. Whenever the Re
publican party forgets its high and holy end,
and becomes an instrument to strengthen
the oppressor, and add to tho burdens of
the oppressed, we hope that its numbers
will desert it, as democrats are now desert
ing the slave drivers' democracy.
TWO DEMOCRATIC PAPERS.
The public know that two democratic pa
pers aro now published in Fremont, and al
though tho Democrat, the old organ, thun
dered and lighttiinged before the appearance
of the Messenger, nothfiig has ever appear
ed in either paper to explain tho reasons for
the establishment of a new democratic or
gan for tho county. We will undertake to
enlighten our readers a little on this point.
It was understood that tho Democrat did
not altogether approve tho repeal of the
Missouri Compromise, that it did n-t go in
for tho policy of Pierce and Douglas in en
slaving Kansas, and in throwing all our ter
ritories open to the black curse. That pa
per did not, to be sure, say much against
these schemes, but then it did not, a, (in the
opinion of tho mal-contents,) a partv onran
should do, go its whole length for party
measures, regardless of their character. It
was willing to servo the devil, but wanted
to do it with a proviso, a sort of saving
clause. Beside all this there is a clique of
wire-workers in this town, a set of trading
politicians, who wanted an organ that would
whistle whatever tune they set it to. They
wanted all the means in their own hands
for setting up and knocking down any man
they chose for county officer. To accom
plish these ends they havo established the
Messenger. Every lino of this sheet reflects
the character and purposes of its founder
It serves the devil not from interest merely,
but from "pure cussedness." It claims to
be the pink of democracy, but advocates
no principle or measure that J-llerson or
Jackson would not have rejected with loath
ing. In tho meantime the Democrat hastens
with disgusting alacrity to mount tho pro
slavery platform. It could not approve the
repeal of the Missouri Compromise but can
now endorse it ; it could not quite swallow
Douglas and Pierco with their devotion to
shivery extension schemes, but it takes
Buchanan at a mouthful with his hearty
approval of all tho doctrines of Pierco and
Douo-kis. But alas for tho Democrat, its

perience this bitter lesson, that the devil and
the slaveholders accept no divided service.
You can't follow hcm with a w hereas
you must down on your knees at a look, and
swallow dirt liko an ostrich. If you hesi
tate an instant you arc lost. Tho Democrat
will find no place for repentauce, though it
seek it carefully with tears. Wo entertain
no ill will toward the Democrat. Indeed,
we should pity its fate, if its want of moral
courage, its shuffling and shifting, had made
it possiblo to exerciso any other feeling than
contempt.
ttS" Tho first response from the Key
Stone State is not particularly encouraging
for 'ten cent' Jeemcs. Tho Philadelphia
Bulletin says :
As PennsvlvanLina,we cannot, it il trne, raise a shont
of jubilation over the chtiice of Mr. Buchanan; for, al
though he is a Pi-niwylvanian, we can discover, in the
lomr course of his public life, no single act that he has
dime for the deration of ike States character or for the
promotion of her policy.

THE HON. WILLIAM L. DAYTON.
From the Philadelphia North American.
j
The Republican Convention showed
great wisdom in tho selection of this gen
tleman as a candidate for the Vice Presi
dency. IIo stands among the foremost
men of the Union in all the qualities that
constitute high character, and ho has given
proofs, under circumstances that admitted
of no misconception, of bis integrity,fidelity
and capacity as a statesman. New Jersey
has every reason to be proud of her maDy
distinguished sons ; but among them all,
whether the past or the present, none is
more entitled to her affectionate regard
than Judge Dayton. . At the bar, onthe
beech, in the public councils of his State and
tho nation, he has proved himself competent
to every duty he has been required to per
form, and has adorned every station he haa
been called upon to fill.
In the Senate of the United States, in
its better aud brighter days, though among
the youngest, ho was eminent for the sound
ness of his opinions, tho cogent clearness
with which ho gave them uterauee, and tho
decorous manliness with which he defended
them against all attacks, no matter from
what quarter they came. Had no political
revolution withdrawn him from that body,
ho would to-duy havo been among its ac
knowledgfd leaders; and, should the ticket
upon which he has been placed provesuecess
full in the approaching contest he will pre
side over its deliberations with a dignity and
courtesy which none of his predecessors havo
surpassed.
From the Cleveland Herald.
nomination of this distinguished
Jcrscyman for the second post of honor and
influence in tho Republic, was an act high
ly creditable to tho discernment aud wis
dom of the Convention. Mr. Dayton, has
had a long and useful experience in both
branches of the American Congress. Ha
succeeded the Hon. S. L. Southard as U.
S. Senator from New Jersey, and durinf his
long and useful term in that body, thepur
ity of his personal character, no less than his
commanding abilities as a statesman and jur-i-t
secured the respect of the nation. No
man is better fitted by every required qual
ification for the duties of Vice President of
tho United States than the Hon. William
L. Dayfc.n. Ho was an old line Whig, and
always "inflexibly opposed to Slavery.
Mr. Dayton is about fifty years of arre, a
ripo scholar, an accomplished gentleman,
and one of the best looking men in tho
Union.
His nomination renders more manifest
the "manifest destiny" of a Republican tri
