mber of ballotmgs
Gen. FRANKLIN 0. PIERCE, !of
New Hampshire, was nominated 'as
the democratic candidate for Presi
dent, and Wm. II. Knte, of Ala!, the
candidate for tbo Vice Presidency!
l,o! unwavering confidence we
hi'ivo ever possessed in the '-nationality
of the great democratic party,: iji
all time past, would not allow a sus -
piciou that any others than reliably
national democratic candidates would
be selected, in this instance, as
heretofore,1 we thank God. our rcli
Ance haa not been missplaced
hence tlie propriety .and readiness to
zealously accept tbo Do'mination the
Convention has made. , We glory in
proclaiming that we are partisans
enough to waive personal preferences,
if we had any, and adopt the choice
of the Dcjmocratic Convention. And
in the language of Eastman of j the
NashVille American, we say these
candidates "can't; be beat we feel it
in our flesh and
bones."; Notwith-
etanding the selection of Gen. Pierce
and Mr. King may have been unex
pected to many of our party, it will
not be the less acceptable. It fore
shadows a complete union ofj the
democratic party North, outb, East,
and West, - which is mo re than e-
nough . to triumphantly elect j our
I etaudard-bearers thus securing for
lour years to come the harmonious
and prosperous action of the govern

As there may be some good whigs
rho feel liko .asking' the question,
who is James K. JJoUJi' we'l copy
from the Nashville American .the Tol
: lowing brief statement as to who
Gen, Franklin 0. Pierce is:
j "With all tho United States to
choose from, there is no one we would
telect before him, either for a strong
candidate or a safe President.! We
have known Gen. Piercej personally
and well irom our earliest manhood.
He is jthe son of old Gov. Pierce, who
; fought by the side of Stark at liunk
; ei- Hill and through tho Revolution;
'.. the brother of CoL Pierce, of the ar
: tillery, who fought so bravely in Flor
ija; and the brother-in-law ofj Gen.
John McNeil, who so greatly dis
tinguished himself on the northern
l rentier
during
the last war with
ijngland.
Fbaxk" Pierce, as he is familiarly
kiiowu t throughout the country, en
tered public life as representative in
1 he Legislature of New Hampshire,
at a very early age as soon as eli
gible, we believe and was immedi
ately made Speaker of the House.
Again, as soon as eligible, ; he was
ejected, a Representative in Con
gress; from which post he was again,
at the first opportunity after attain
ing the requisite age, transferred to
tho United States Senate. He was
reelected to tho Senate, and resigned
beforo tho, expiration of his second
term. . . ;!'!'
fe;nce his resignation, ho has re
peatedly been urged to accept politi
cal offices, but has invariably de
clined. It is within our knowledo-ft
that he was one of the first men to
hom Mr. Polk who had served
vith him in Congress and knew him
vfell- offered a seat in his cabinet.
This offer was repeated a second
time, when the oQice of Attorney
General of the U.' S. was pressed up
on him, and again declined. On the
breaking out of the Mexican war,
however, he informed Mr. . lolk that
- . ' t .
ho was ready to accept any position
in the army which he chose to offer
lam. He was appoiuted first a Co
lonel, und subsequently a Brigadier
(Jeneral, and was engaged in most of
the battles of the valley ol Mexico.
'. is a n.pid ouiiof!thepub-
Uic life of our candidate, file has
jparunpHfed, since ms retirement
from r ubiio life, in the political b ittles
of his native State whenever called
upon to volunteer. Having, while in
Congress, distinguished himself by
resisting the spirit of abolitionism,
he has fought it at homc when ad
vocated by the free-soil whigs and
the Hale democrats; and it is to his
exertions mainly that the complete
overthrow of both those factions has
been achieved in New Hampshire, j
No man enjoys a more deep-seated
'popularity than he does.

Pretty Talk.
The definite position taken by ma
ny whigs in the South, on the Com-
promise
he all-absorbing political
topic oft
he day taken in a litpral
sense, Without any reference to' the
j past histo
of that party, would lead
the country to conclude that they
cannot be diverted from; it: and-that
tiothimr short of an actual avowal of
I 1 ' o
the finality- of the Compromise meas-
tires, by the candidate of their party,
over his jown ! signature, can satisfy
their minds of his fitness for the
ceEidency. Wo have a right to
ipfesume, that fhe slightest
equivo-
cation will not do but that they
imusthave a positive and direct "thus
saith the Lord." They vlll pot per
mit the Convention to j select a man
who can give no better guarantee of
his soundness upon the Compromise,
than that he expresses himself in
favor of their finality, in his street
talks, and at the same time refuses to
put it on paper. We( have a right,
we say. to conclude that a candidate
thus started
would fail to receive the
vote of
the whijrs in 'the South.
Whether they; will sustain this con-
i " ' i r
elusion, time I jalone will' tell. We
trust the' will; for, notwithstanding
we have ver been opposed to the
Compromise as a whole, believing it
did not securo'all our rights, yet, for
the sake of peace in - the future, we
say, let it be final let adiscussion
of it now cease, and all Opposition to
it be dropped. j j i . p .
The" position which should be oc
cupied by the; aspirant to the Presi
dency, is so well and beautifully set
forth by Mr. Gentry', one of the whig
members of Congress from Tennessee,
in a speech iu that body recently, that
we cannot deny ourselves the pleas
ure of laying it before our readers.
with the hope; that it will serve our
whig friends las a political chart in
making up their minds preparatory
to voting in the coming Presidential
election. Read it, and remember it.

It is not enough that a Presiden
tial candidate may be believed to haye
been lavorable to the enactment of
those measures, and himself individ
ually in favor of maintaining' them.
A far greater Iquestion is, by what in
fluences is he surrounded? What
counsel?, what influences will control
the political organization upon which
he relies for his election? ! Andjyhat
influences will decido the policy o
his administration in the event ot his
success? The public interests demand
the peace ! of the j country the
safety of the Upion require not only
that he shall be publicly and une
quivocally pledged "to regard the
Compromise measures - as a final set'
tlement of the dangerous questions
they crabraced'jbut that the politij
cal organization upon which he relies
fot election shall be of such a char
acter as to wield alT the influences of
a Presidential canvass directly in fa
vor of reconciling the minds of tire
people, North and South, to the ac
ceptance of those measures as a final

Singular Death. a man of the
name of Burns, says the Baltimore
Clipper, died a few d;
unison bpinr nnrrmiu
ivs since irom
communicated to Jiis

t o r
horse. It ap-
j pears that the decease
Ll had a horse
afflicted with thejglHliders, and du-
riri": the administratiob
of medicine
thrust h;s hahd in the a
imal's mouth.
One of the fingers of
the hand had
been previously cut
and the flesh
laid open, and the poisonous virus en
tering this, wound, ijiortification soon
ensued. A' 'physician was called in
to amputate jthe limb, but perceiving
that the poisbn haA penetrated to
every portion ot the uniortunate
man s system, the professor declined
! performing the operation, stating
that no earthly skill could save his
life. After lingering in great agony,
death finally closedj the scene. The
corpse presented a blackened, hideous
appearance, and afforded a dreadful
warning to
tamper with
those who heedlessly
diseased animals.
The Veto. We do not remember
to have seeii the whig doctrine, that
the President should not Veto an
act of Congress save upon constitu
tional grounds, formally abandoned.
We presume it is yet an- article of
the whig creed. ; See, then, the dan
iger of putting the whig party in pow
!er in this: 'We'll fight,' say Southen
v ell light, say ooutnern
whigs, 'if the fugitive shve law is
repealed.' But an act repealing the
"n wou f10 e unconstitutional,
i and your President could not veto
such an act without violating "whig
