The lianntr republishes llie Iluffulo Platform.
Our neighbor seems deposed to reverse the Chris
tian maxim, and, remembering those things which )
are .behind, to forget those which are before.
We do not remember to have seen this Buffalo
Platform in the Washington ll-puhlie during that
period when, under on editor who shall be name

We ere glad that, for any object, this Buffalo
Phtform is spread before the readers of the Ban
ivr. They have heard of- it before. Perhaps
they are aware tint Daniel Webster publicly
pronounced that platform good whig doctrine.
Ik-charged that its authors had stolen whig thun
der, and said that no man had to leave the whig
party to profess the sentiments therein laid down.
We are not aware that Mr. Webster ever re
canted this opinion to the day of his death. So
the Hanner, in publishing this platform, shows its
readers what is whiggery, as defined by Daniel
The Banner derotes two or three columns to an
article intended to show that some, men who were
barnburners, have been appointed lo otiice in New
York. Our neighbor will, we hope, pardon us for
aaying that his article makes no impression upon
us. And the reason why it does not, is found in I
the fact tint the editor of the Banner lm not yet
denied or' explained the charge of the Washing
ton Ilejmblic thn he went into that piper to defend
the bringing info office under Gen. TAYL0it,of''fhat
class ol politicians known m free-soilers." The
editor must defend himself from this charge, or
we shall refuse io listen to hit present attacks.
This matter is ably and fairly discussed by the
Ijouisvilte Dnnocrat, in the following article:
The anti-slavery whigs of the North hive dis
solved pirtnership with their brother whigs of the
Sontlu Taey have given diptinct notice of it
ngain anJ again; and it is, perhaps, owing to this
tuat the editor of the Journal has lately struck
nit furiously against abolitionists; nut only rgainst
Hbolilionists, but against all anti-slavery men in
He has really adopted a political rind moral
creed which has some points of singular ingenuity.
It was no particular sin in 1S4S, to advocate and
vote for the Wilnut promise, and lo hate and de
nounce slavery as did all the whigs North, with
bcarcely an exception. Then was, the peril and the
r-trugglc which convulsed the Union. The question
was proviso, or no proviso. If the proviso pre
vailed, the South lust all, principal and interest,
that she contended for. Still the creed of the
Journal now is that a zealous support of the provi
so at that particular time was uf small consequslice;
particularly if the supporters were whios, and
ailed themselves whigs, and voted lor whig can
didates. There was so much gooj in whigery
that soraeprovisoiain was needed; as in a piece of
music, a little discord is allowable and desirable to
heighten the appreciation ol harmony. It was
nure criminal in democrats who voted for demo
craiic candidates to support the proiisj; and it
was iiiMilTerah e that they should not only advocate
ttie proviso, but also vote outright for Van Buren.
It is obvious tint all democrats would be equally
criminal in supporting the proviso were not th-"
vh gs in the pame fix? They were, in fact, the
great advocates of the proviso, and responsible for
ihe new exciterrent; and of which their great ad
vocate, Daniel Webster, boasted.
Here is the peculiarity about our neighbor's
nural code. Those most guilty at the worst time
arc quite excusable. The editor himself is also
very innocent, although he was the sturdy apolo
gist lor men who voted for tha provisa from this
State; and although he wus the champion of the
grand coalition with abolitionists under the Taylor
administration, which existed in all the federal ulli
ces from the cabinet down. He, too,has been the
npologist of whig politicians uf this State who
traveled over to the free Stales and ch;med in
with the anti-slawry and Wilmot proviso notions
of that tectioii. He has been ns much accessory
to u h it he denounces as treason, as any one uf
We don't defend the President for the appoint
ment of any freesoilers to office; much less shall
we justify ihe neglect ol tried men at the North
who never blan. bed in tha contest. Still u- nc:h
borisnotthe man lo find fault. He is too guil'y;
his party is too guilty.
How was it that the editor was so ready to unite
with Greeley, Seward &. Co., to elect their candi
date! Did toe editor of the Journal suppose that
Scott would neglect his known friends, wlu com
pelled his nomination!
The editor knoivs tetter. He knows that if
Scott had been elected, Seward, Greely, Thurlow
Weed&. Co., would have teen his chiel advisers.
A'l the intelligent voters of the Union foresaw
that this would be the result, and they eschewed
the miserable combination. Even the whigs North,
thousands of them, who had righted themselves
up, repudiated the party; but our neighbor never
flinched at the odor uf abo.itionism.
He has changed his course now. The abolition
ists have pronounced the whig party defunct; and
us mulling mote can be made out of them, let them
ull go to .
e do trust that the editor will not fall back
int'i his old habits and take up with his old friends
Not long since when we noticed such men as
Corwin, Ewing, Winthrop, Collamcr, Smith, and
others, the editor of the Journal would fire up and
deny outright they ueresectional at all; although
ihey sat and voted along side of Jack Hale, and
Chase, and Seward.
Ten to one he will return to his old habits, and
try to make his readers beliew that Seward has
been the most national of all the men in the Sen
ute, and has nothing seclion.nl ubout him. Just
let our neighbor be honest lor once, confess his
past sins-, and the political abolitionism of his
pany and its affinities, and then we shall give him
mil permission to notice the appuintineiii uf all
the Van lluren men who get office, and cjiidemn
their past conduct But he ought to allow the
merit f repentance and reformation; we allowed
it in the case of Websier and Fillmore, and a lew
Northern wlrgs. We have to make large allow
hiiees in his, fuse; for he has sinned egr giousty in
tl.e premises. Tl e mercy shown to him he ought,
in all lainies, to extend to others.
The editor pretends that we are defending
thee barn-burners. Now, we only said they were
us good as any of the Northern whigs. We
thought that was saying precious little for them.
But we are di-po-ed to act in good faith on thin
slavery question. All parties professed to nh'de
by the compromise i.nd drop the agitation. The
democrats so promised, and so diai the wings. The
past wus to be forgotten, and the subject 'uropped.
A large portion ot the whig convention made no
such promise; they voted against the plaflorm.
Siill the mojority gave the pledge and ought to
abide by it.
If the editorof (hn Journal finds any appointee
ol this administration uho is bentuti renewing
the uld contest in any phase, let ii mi denounce
such a man.
In the meantime, let him attend tolhe fragments
of his own patty North, who are done with him,
who almost in uia-s prefer pure abolitionism to
even a whig mixture.

Messrs. Editors It give me pleasure to learn,
through the columns of jour valuable journal, that
the Democratic S'ate Convention had placed in
nomination forGavernor, Andrew Jjhnson. This
nomination meels with a hearty response from the
hardy yeominry of the State. Mechanics will
work with a will to secure the election of one who,
like them has labored at tha inecha-iical arts, in
stead of rolling in the lap of luxury, n-irtured, sus
tained and supported by richAi'i fulhs and relatives.
The poor men of the State will rally to the sup
port of the man who, in his days of prosperity, has
labored zealously and untiringly for the interests
of the common people. Honest men, not sha-k-fed
by the bonds of party spirit, will support him
for daring, at all times and on all occasions, to
battle for the rights of the masses. Review his
his'ory,and in every position he has been called
upon to occupy, whetliT it be on the tailij.-'s board
or filling a seat in the Hall of our NatioiJal Legis
lature, lie has ever been found faithful to trusts
confided to his care. The great principle of his
Lfe, as exhibited by the co;rse he lias pursued, has
been the elevation and improvement of the masses.
Can such a man be defeated in Tennessee! No,
never! With him as mirstaudard bearer, we know
no such word as defeat, but go into the contest
fearless of the result, confident that the result in
August next will be the triumphant election of
Andy the Tailor." A Mlchasic.
The Collins Steajiers. On Saturday morn
ing three uf these noble vtssels were together at
Canal street dock the Baltic, which arrived two
. weeks since from Liverpool; the Pacific to leave
port for Europe at noon, and the Atlantic, which
arrived at 7 o'clock in the morning, in nine days
and twenty-two hours, under command of Captain
West, from Liverpool. The correspondence hy
the last-named was replied to by steamer that
sailed at noon!
All four of Mr. Collins' ships have now made
trips, both ways, under ten d.ixs. The Baltic's
run in the summer of 1651, we believe, was the
shortest western passage, 9 days. md 17 hours from
dock to dock, and !:13 to Sandy Hook, where she
was telegraphed to the city. This achievement,
as u whole, has not been equalled by the rival Brit
ish line. One or two of the Cunarders have made
the run inside often days, but the average of three
years, since the Collins line started, hnsbeeii ma
terially below the American average. The new
steamer Arabia was built for great power, and her
splendid and costly machinery is certainly such as
to give it to her, but the model of the ship, if not
delective to B i i h ju Igmeitt, will not compare
with her Yankee rivals, and on the practical test
of speed, say for a series of trips, we have ceased
to feel any apprehension for the reputation of the
latter. iV. Y. Times.

of Africa. The day had been extremely mild, with
a "-entle breeze sweeping t j the northward and
westward; but towards the close of the afternoon
the sea breeze died away, and one of those sultry,

great sun burnt Sahara. i

Amonff those who seemed to be enjoving the

was the son of ouroid gunner; and in a laughing
! mood thpy start?d out Iroin the studding sail on a
' There was a loud ringing shout of joy on their
I lips as they put ofl', and they started through the .
! water l.ke "fishes. The sur.ace of the sea was as
smooth as glass, though itsbasom rose in lung and '
, heavy srt-elU lhat set in from the Atlantic. ,
The vessel was moored with a long s eep from
bv.h cables, and the buoy of the s'arbjard anchor i
was far away on the starboard quarter where it j
rose and fell with the lazy swells like a drunken '
, man. i
Towards ihe buoy the two lads made their way,
Fred. Fairbanks taking the lead; but when they
i were within about twenty or thirty fathems of the
, buoy, Tim. shot ahead and promised to win the
j race. The old gunner watched the progress of .
' his son with a vast pride; and when he saw hiin 1
droop behind, he leaped upon poop and was on
. the point of urging him on by a shout, when a cry
reached him that made him start us if he had
been struck by a cannon ball.
4 A shark! a shark! came from the captain of the
forecastle, and at ihe sound of the terrible words,
the men who were in the Water leaped aud plung
ed towards the ship.

the monster was visible. His course was for the
For a moment the gunner stood like one bereft
ot sense, but at the next he shouted at the top of
' his voice for the boys to turn; but the little lel
, lows heard him not. Stoutly the two swimmers
strove (or the goal, 'all uncjnscious of the fearful
death-spirit lhat hovered to near them. Their
merry laugh still rang over the waters, and at
length they both touched the buoy together.
' O what "drops of agony started from the brow of
our old gunner. A boat had been put oil', but
Fairbanks knew that it could not reach them in
seasmi, and every moment he expected to see the
monster sink from sight, and then he knew that all
hope would be gone. At that moment a cry reach
ed the ship that went through every heart like a
stream of fire the boys had discovered their ene
my. The cry started old Fairbanks to his senses,
and quicker than thought he sprang to .'ie Quarter
deck. The guns were all loaded ana si.t.ed or
and aft and none knew their tempir better than
he. With a steady hand, made strong by hope,
tha old gunner seized a prim.ng wire, and picked
the cartridge ol one of the quarter guns. Then
he took from is pocket a percussion wafer, and
set it in its place, and put back the hammer of the
patent lock. With a steady giant strength the
old man swayed the breech of the heavy gun to
itsgeering, anJ then seizing the string lock, he
stood back and watched for the next swell that
would bring the shark in range. He had aimed ihe
piece some distance ahead of his mark, but yet a
single monient would settle his hopes and fears.
Every breath was hushed, and every heart in
that old ship beat painfully. The boat was some
distance from the bnys, while the horrible sea
monster was learfully near. Sudden'y the air
w;.s awoke by the roar of a heavy gun, and as the -old
man knew his shot was gone, he sank hack on I
the combing of the hatch, and covered his face
with his hands, as if afraid to see the result of his
efforts; for if he had failed, he knew that the boys !
For a few moments a'ler the report of the gun
had died away upon the air, there was a dead si
lence; but us the smoke arose Iroin thesurface of
the water, there was at first a low murmur break
ing from ihe lipsof the men that murmur grew
louder and stronger, until it swelled to the joyous
dalening shouts. The old guqner sprang to his
feet and gazed out upon the water, and the first
thing that met his view was the huge carcass of
the shark floating with his belly up a mangled
In a few moments the boat reached the daring
swimmers, and, half dead with fright, they were
brought on board. The old man clasped his hjy
in his anus, and then, overcome by the powerful
excitement, he leaned upon the gun for support.

and suspense, but never have I seen three hun
dred beings more overcome by thrilling emotions
than on that eventful momeiit when they first ,

The Duchess or Sutherland The Duchess
of Sutherland, who has thrust herself into ihe
'Uncle Tom" excitement, is aliandson.c woman,
and is in tolerable preservation at the age of fifty.
She has been a grandmother several years hav- ,

some and healthy, at early ages. She was Mis- .
tress o' the Robes to Q.iecn Victoria for several
years, and is her personal friend. The Duke of
S. is of the Egerton family, and is nearly twenty i
years her senior a tall, thin, silent man, with 1
light hair and sandy whiskers, and much differ
ent from his younger brother, the Earl of Elles-
mere, (Britisn Commissioner to the American ,
World's Fair,) who is dark-complexioned and
well lo.J;iug, as may be judged by glancing ut a
print of Landseer's "Hawking Parly," in which '
the Earl is the prominent male figure. TheDuch- '
ecs of S. is one of the Karl of Carlisle's sisters. .
He visited the United States ten or twelve years I
ago, when he was Lord Morpeth. It is very odd 1
that, he and all Ihe male members of his family f
should be extremely plain in features, while the
females have been noted for their beauty. The ;
founder of the fame and fortune ol this house was

of England, a contemporary of Sir Francis Ba
