; In a recent issue of the Freder

these candid! admissions are made;
first, that the late Whig. Convention
in Richmond pledged itself to the
support of fcjeott, and second, that
Winfield Scott, the Whig candidate
for the Presidency, is an ahoUtio.ust.
The language of the News is worthy
of notice: here it is:
"Disguise the fact as we may, the
4th resolution of the Convention is
an anchor to the windward for Gen
eral Scott- No other Whig names
are thought of or breathed in con

Whigs of Virginia have told ihe
Whigs of the Union in National Con

And ;how is it universally believed
they will answer it? j Just a? a large
number of the Virginia Convention
would have answered it the otlier

"That we have not mistaken or
misrepresented these gentlemen in
their political relations to the coun
try, their past history, fresh in the
recollection of .the intelligent reader,
will conclusively demonstrate. With
in the last ten years Gen. Scott has
avowed himself an wiquaVjied aboli
tionist. In a letter written. in 1842
to a committee in Pennsylvania, who
were the organ of a Convention to
ascertain his views, on the subject of
slavery, he declared his sanction of
Judge Tucker's speculation in his
Commentaries on Slavery in Vir
ginia, and the adoption of the abom
inable doctrines taught by the aboli
tionists in the Virginia Legislature
of '31-'32. We need not remind the

Thewhigs of the. South aro , just
now ready to throw themselves away
in support of tho compromise.
Their zeal is of the post facto sort.
It did not blaze up when thoj. com
promise needed support in Congress.
Thejn the whins South were very
doubtful about tho whole business,
and very reluctant to make an issue
with, their dear brethren of the North.
When Clay threw out a challenge to
the supporters of the, whig Presi
dent and his policy, evorv whig ed
itor f the South kit alarmed, and
shivered in his boots at the rtcklesi-:
less of the said Clav. The Work was
done however, and the whole country
has acquiesced. '
There is njot even a possibility of
any pne of these compromise meas-
ii ii t
ures Deing repealed or changed in
this age or generation. It is there
fore (easy to sec how the whigs aro
now! in favor of the compromise.'
They don't, want to support it par
ticularly. It needs- no party organ
ization. They icant ihc wmpromisa
to svpport than! . If the compromiso
needed support, and it was a task
hard to perform, they would he. tho
last tb 1 undertake it, and j tho last
that should be trusted with it.
We take pleasure' in reading the
whig resolutions in favor of support
ing the Jaws and executing them.
Let the democrats make laws, and
let the whigs support " them. Just
so matters stand at present. Tho
policy and laws of the federal gov

Now, let them tike care of the
compromise. It is now but a iart
of the baggage, but in so doing, ob

This compromise ia made of the
very best explosive material acd will
not bear agitation. It is not! a fit
subject to be shaken and tossed about
in a political 'canvass. ;
