are accosted on the streets by our
whig friends, upon the subject of the
approaching Presidential election,:. nd
their repeated asseverations that they
will not support this or that man,
even if nominated by the Whig Na

interest upon the matter of Presi

longer desired or expected; better to
-take up the Compromise, or some!
other democratic triumph. There is
no hope of success for them, in con;-
. tending for the old issues; past ex-!
pcrience proves this. A new trick :
or scheme seems iudispensible. ! It
would be worse than suicide to hope
; lor victory without something fresh
' lo gull the masses with. Hence, we
find i the whi leaders in the South
espousing the Compromise clinging
to if with a death-like grasp even
contending that it originated with,
and was finally placed upon the stat
utes, by, the whig party. Well, if
the Compromise, or its being -made a
final settlement of the slavery agita
tion, will, satisfy the whigs, and we
i know jiot that they ask for more, no
one can blame them for tenaciously
cotending that their candidate jnust
;be a compromise whig in thc fullest
'sense without doubt or prevarica
tion -r-rendered genuine, by his own
'signature. Surel'v, we should expect
.this. It is reasonable it is right,
iBut, will this be done? Will such a

National Convention? : That's. the
rub. ; And if not, what will they do?,
