It was expected that " II" would at
tempt, in the last Free Freti, to answer
forac of the questions that I have put to
him ; but instead of that bo treats his
readers to a moro insipid string of sophis
try, if possible, than any of his previous
productions. It must be admitted, however,
that the article is remarkable for oue thing;
and that id the number of false positions and
false conclusions crowded into so short a
pace. It would require altogether too much
fitneand fpacc to notice them all ; and it is
wholly unnecessary to do so, as the falla
cies arc, most of them, so potent as to be
open to the dullest comprehension, I shall
therefore, notice but a few of them. And
in bo doing, I shall quote liberally from
hip article. Indeed, it has been suggest
ed by a very sensible observer that to pub
lish his article entire fur our renders

wr it be. rs its owu refutation upon its

Wiluiot Provbo, and declaring that the
south wuuld support no man for tho presi
dency who was not conrtnitted against
that doctrine. I know, that at that time,
Gen. Cais was an aspirant for tho nomi
nation. And I know that it was said by
the oppoucuts of Gen. Cas., that the : fleuiocracy and JNTiiok- Jcmocracv are so ! A emmiueo of rArre from each coiigrtfssinaldi.s

contingency. But I did not know, as you
assert, that "all the leadiug democrats of
the noth were consulted before it was put
forth." No sir, I did not Amok that Gen.
Cass was incapable of forming and ex
pressing his own opinions without con
sulting others, or that he had not sufficient
independence to do so.
And I know another thing, aud that U,
if he did "consult all the leading demo
crats of the north," he must have acted
directly contrary to their advice, or ehe
xl 1 - .!.. -1 1 1!
when aud where any "leading democrat of
of the north" ever avowed himself in fa
vor of that doctrine till long after that
time, Gen. Cass excepted.
If it i3 true, as you asoirt, that Gen.
Cass wai defeated because the doctrine of
the Nicholson Letter was distasteful to the
south; then I should like to have you cx
plaiu how it happened, that, of tho elect
oral votes cast for Gen. Cass, a considera
bly larger proportion were from southern
slave-holding states, than of those cast for
Gen. Taylor. And this too, iiuhithtand
ing Gen. Cass was a northern, and Gen.
Taylor a southern man.
Vour language above quoted, intimates,
and is evidently designed to convey tho
impiession, to the minds of those that do
not know better, that the Nicholson bet
ter was called out from Gen. Cass us an
expression of his views after he was nom
inated for the presidency. Indeed, you
virtually Fay so. If you think such was
the ense, jou had better inform yourself
on the subject ; and you will find that that
letter was put forth some time before the
m4tin of tho convention that nominated
Gen. Cas.j, and before it was known that
he would be a candidate at all. Again

the entire democratic partv of this State
. . . . i
supported him upon. And now 1 put
the question to you again, and I wisfi you
to meet it fairly, and not try to evade it.
If the democratic party of thisState, in vot
iug for Gcu. Cass in 1818, supported the
doctrine of the Nicholson Letter, why did
they at the. tame fleet urn, and on the very
same Lallott elect a legislature to pass res
olutions in direct conllict with the doc
trine of that letter ? Can you tell sir ?
Will you pretend that that legi.dature did
not express the sentiments of their con
stituents? You say again in reference to the reso
lutions quoted by me :
"Your resolution, or those quoted by you, are
nearly all of them dated prior to 1 Sou," A J.
Well sir, what of it if they are? Is
democracy prior to 1850 an entirely dif
ferent thing from democracy siixr 1 S
and anft(.,nitic thereto? If you take
that ground you might as well give up
this point iu the controversy, and admit
that it is the democratic party. and not wo,
that has changed since 1818; ami that
prior to I8o0, they advocated a doctrine
which they have since repudiated. If
you do not admit that they have radically
changed since 1848, then what do you
mean by saying that those resolutions
were passed wo to 18;j0?
IJut sir, you do expressly admit such a
change, and you fix the date of that change
in 1850. You sny emphatically :
"It wa? not the mere fact that it was an act of
Conrcfs. which made tho eomprnni.-e of I .",(), a
matter of ho much importance, but it was the -titbli'him
nt ij'a firinriplr in Trm'torinl 'iliitii.n,

Now sir, let me ask, if' the rfentorralie
p'.irfj in LS I, fttpporti l the. tiut-trinc of'
the xtcfuj.ea Lttu r, and it the comprom
ises of 1850 were established upon the
snmc doctrine, and if the democratic party
still hold to the same doctrine, why do
you fi vupou 1850 as the time of the
great change, ,so that nothing prior to that
date is to have any authority; and why
do vou assert that iu 1850 "'a i-rinciple r,
territorial legislation was rdaMLshed Di
rkci ly oitosf.I) to what had been pre
viously pur.-tied?" Was not the enurse
of territorial legidaf i.m which had been
pursued prior to 150, tho lnji.Jotini
tif the il D )'( i tie pa ry. '
J Jbink it must now b evident to all,
that whether have done anything or not,
jr,t have dearly refuted yourself, and
shown that pru'T to 1850, the democratic
party did adhere t? n doctrine of "terri
torial halation tlirou.'Iy opposed" to their
doctrines since that time.
You refuse, to recognize, authority,
the "individud opinion of leading demo
crats,' and I do not a3k mm to ta them
as such any ftrther thin they are ill iit

to jo cisy test! of its tenacity aud
streogtb, and its lupcriority over ell other
iron iu the world so repeatedly arid
triumphantly chown, that any farther tes
timony npon tho ffubject,' would to be alto
gcther Bupcrfluouj. This testimony, how
ever is constantly accumulating on every
hand. A gentleman just up from De
troit, states that J. B. Wayne & Co., large,
engine manufacturers there, have como to
the determination to use no other iron in
the manufacture of engines. , And our
word for it, J. B. Wajne & Co., will have .
a tuey can 1,0 to supply ordors which will
come in udou them as oou as their deter

mination is generally known. And other
manufactucrs, who decline the use of Lab
superior iron, on the score of expense
! ake' a
will liud that they have made a great mu-
and their customers will not be flow to
lem know it.
It has bceu reported that the Lake
Superior pig metal did not mould readily
into thin castings. Uut this imprewion
came of igncranec. Mr. Wayne eaid to
the gentleman abore alluded to, that by
fluxing it properly, he found no ditfioulty
in runing it into the thinest casting.
It is naturally, he said, tuo strong, and only
needs suitable fluxing or iluting.
And the castings he make from it, aeemi
to be possessed of amazing strength. Tho
Advertiser speaks of a ca?e which transpir
ed at M. Wayne's shop, which afford
striking e vidence of the pent strength of
the eastings made from thi iron. A large
pump gearwheel had been cast from tho
first lot of pig sent down from the Pioneer
Works, for the liockland mine and tho
trial of its strength consisted in an attempt
to break off the neck formed in the orifice
through which the mttal wa3 poured into
the mould, which iifck was an inch and
a half through. For a long time it with
stood the effort to break it oil' with a
heay fledge hammer, being "' almost as
tough and springy as a pice of steel of
the .amo size." Those that witnessed the
breaking of it were astonished ut it
Thus i-! the Lake Superior iron fast
making its way to tho public favtr, and
the time is coming on when the iroa
mountains of this peninsula will bo looked
to as the chief sources of supply of the
highest irrades of infportant metal. LH
