T : FLORIDA.
The despatch from Savannah in our paper to-day
is, we believe, reliable. Florida ha3 gone for the
democracy. That she will go the same way in
November we entertain no doubt.
The democrat have carried their State ticket by
a large majority. They have also elected a large
majority of the members of Congrea and Legisla
ture. They beat both the Fremont and Fillmore
parties fused in one. As each of those parties has
an electoral ticket in the field, it is past all contin
gency that the electoral vote of Indiana will
be given to Buchanan. Illinois will go the same
way. Connecticut has shown in her late elections
that she is Bale for Buchanan. And these States
with the South, eecure the election of Buchanan.
But he ia f qually certain of several other States.
The news has been very conflicting, alternating
one aide and the other, and raising or depressing
the spirits of parties as the intelligence was favor
able or unfavorable Thr know-nothings have
been as eager to hear of the success of the black
republicans as though Fremont was their open and
avowed candidate, and have been as much de
pressed at the reports unfavorable to his party as
the democrats have been at hearing of the possi
bility of the defeat of ihtir party. At the mo
ment of putting our tri-weekly to press, we have
no direct intelligence which leads us to doubt that
we have carried the State. But the know -nothings
claim to have received intelligence that their
friends and allies, the black republicans, have car
ried the State by from seven to ten thousand ma
jority. This may or may not be so. A few hours
will tell it
At all events, Pennsylvania is absolutely certain
lor Buchanan. The fusion which has been efTec
ted in October cannot be made available in No
vember. Buchanan is twenty thousand stronger
in Pennsylvania than any local ticket. The result
in Indiana shows that he will carry all the States
west of Ohio. Michigan and Connecticut are safe
for him. The South will give him a unanimous
vote. And the old Keystone will give him an

Georgia, Hon. L. P. Walker and Senator C. C.

t5T The know nothings ot Nashville were as
much elated at the reported success of the black
republicans in Pennsylvania yesterday as though I
their own avowed candidate had Eucceeded. The

thinking. It ehows that the know nothings hrie
are entirely indifferent whether Fillmore or Fre
mont succeeds. The su ccess of eithsr is their vic
tory. This proves more than we have ever charged
against them. The cordialsympathy of southern
Fillmore men with northern Fremont men can no
longer be denied. Of,r ftourse, all their talk ol uni
ting here on Fillmore to beat Fremont, will here
after pass as gammon, when their own party north
unite on Fafeni0nt to beat Buchanan, and they
praise the if operation.

es no hope that Fillmore can carry Pennsylvania.
Its hope is that Mr. Buchanan can't get the State.
And that, in our judgment, is tantamount to the
hope that Fremont will get it.
Democrats! this is tho hope of a paper which
has been urging you to unite on Fillmore to beat
Fremont I What do you think of it? It sees its

A WORD FROM AN IMPARTIAL SOURCE.
The Memphis Bulletin, an independent paper,
whose editor is an. old line whig, and who, per
BDtally, perfers Mr. Fillmore to either of the can
didates, bat regards Mr. Buchanan's election as
the only means of defeating Fremont, makes the
following very jest comments on the dangerous
strategy that is now going on in the Northern
States between the Fillmore and Fremout leaders.
It addreses itself to the sound sense and patriotism
of every lover of the Union :
Party Strategy An Adroit but Dangerous
Movement. We have observed, for some weeks
back, the strategetio movements of the American
party, with a species of admiration for its bold
ness and adroitness. It is one of those decisive
manoeuvres, executedon the brink of battle, v? bich
either makes or mareutterly. To make it clear to
our readers, it is necessary to promise, that a vast
amount of the strength of Mr. Buchanan and of
the democratio party in this contest, rests upon the
well-grounded belief that, backed by an unbroken
national organization, he could more surely he'
elected over Fremont, than Mr. Fillmore, the ranks
of whose party had been so recently broken, in
some parts of the Union, by local stampedes into
the black republican camp. These considerations
rallied to Mr. Buchanan vast numbers, many of
whom would personally prefer Mr. Fillmore. This
is especially so in the South, where the tendency
of the conservatism not in intimate alliance with
either party, has been, and is, certainly to the sup
port of the democratic nominee as "the strongest
The American supporters, of Mr. Fillmore have
seen and felt this, and know that unless this unani
mity of sentiment in the Southern States as to
Buchanan's strength can be broken down, their
favorite may Btand no chance, even to go into the
Now for their plan of operations. A State elec
tion comes off in Pennsylvania next Tuesday. It
is given out that atremendous reaction is setting in
the Free States, in favor of Fillmore, and that Bu
chanan is losing ground. By an arrangement or
understanding of soma sort with the eupporters of
Fremont in that State, a union or fusion ticket is
run singly in opposition to the democratic State
ticket Heaven and earth will be moved to carry
it; so that it may bo proclaimed that Mr. Bu
chanan's own State has decided against him, and
that therefore he will no longer do to depend upon
as the rallying point to beat Fremont The cal
culation is, that then, by a bold rush, and claim
ing that Mr. Fillmore ia "the strongest man," a
revolution may be effected in the Southern States
which, if it does not carry Mr Fillmore in the elec
toral Colleges, will at least throw him in the House,
where his peculiar friends think he stands the best
This piece ofjstrategy is adroit, but dangerous, in
a double sense. It is dangerous to the party which
makes it, in that, if the iusicn ticket fails to carry
in Pennsylvania by a very decisive majority, it will
fir the public mind more firmly than ever that Mr.
Buchanan is the man "to tie to" to beat Fremont,
thug hoisting the engineer with his own petard: It
is dangerous to that combined union of the conser
vative, national elements of the country, in which
alone there is any hope of the election of either
Mr. Fillmore or Mr. Buchanan; for, even in the
event of the success of the anti-Buchanan ticket
in Pennsylvania by such a majority as would give
the superficial observer reason to despair or his
carrying the State in November, the timo is too
short in which to marshal all the Southern States
around the standard of Mr. Fillmore. He moat be
sanguine, indeed, who belives that Arkansas, or
Mississippi, or Alabama, will not, in any event,
vote for the democratic nominee. In such a man
oeuver in front of the enemy, the commander who
make3it ought to be sure of his power to wheel
every brigade and regiment into the new line of
But "wo shall see what we shall see." If it were
not for the momentous consequences which hang
upon the result, we should watch the progress of
these party tactics with the interest of mere
curiosity. As it is, we shall observe their develop
ment with anxious solicitude.
The following, from the New Haven Register,
shows bow safely we may calculated on the vote
of Connecticut for Buchanan in November:
Town klectiohsI Great Democratic Gains 1 1
A "Shriek" tor th Union and Constitution 1 11
The primary elections in most of the towns in
this State took place on Monday; and the result ia'
a very decided and substantial gain to the democ
racy. It shadows forth tne election of the Bu
chanan and Breckinridgo electoral ticket in No
vember, by a triumphant majority. Put down
Connecticut hereafter as sure tor BUCHANAN,
THE CONSTITUTION AND THE UNION I
Spread it abroad, and let it give new courage to
the friends of the Union, through the length and
breadth of the land. Maine fever is not epidemic
and 88 the Philosopher Greely truly says, the
black republicans must do something more than
hurrah over Maine, or they are doomed to an ig
nominious and overwhelming defeat.
For the information of persons outside of Con
necticut, it may bs well to observe that the Select
men of the several towns chosen in the primary
elections are the inspectors of election, as known
in other States, not only for the Presidential elec
tion in November, but for the ensuing year. The
black republicans have made a secret and desperate
effort to Becure the3e officers. The State has been
stumped for the last month, by their most adroit
speakers and electioneered; they have had mass
meetings, &nd barbecues, and torchlight precessions,
without i number; and after all, tbey have been
gracefully but effectually laid out Ward Beecher
has been frequently in requisition, and all the poli
tical priesthood that he could influence have been
instant in season and out of season, but to no pur
pose. The movements of the arch demagogue
have recoiled upon him and we believe, instead
of injuring the cause of Buchanan, he has done us
mush good. Let him oontinue as he has begun,
through the present month, and up to the Presi
dential vote, and Connecticut will be the banner

) Vote in Pennsylvania. For the benefit of
speculating politicians, we give below the vote f
Pennsylvania, for 1855. .The contest was for Ca
nal Commissioner. In 1855, as now, there was a
fusion of all isn9 against the Democracy. Wo
give tho entire result:
Nicholson, (Fusion) 149,745
Williamson, (Republican) 7,220
Cleaver, (Native) 4.05G
Henderson, (Whig) 2,293
Martin, (Know Nothing) G78
Total majority against Democracy
The total vote polled,
Freb Neoroh at the North. By the official
report of the authorities of Canada for 1855, it ap
pears that there is iu the Penitentiary 1 iu every
154 of the black population of that Province; 1 in
every 890 of the Indian population, and 1 in eve
ry 3CS4 of the white population. The free negroes
therefore are sis times as criminal as the Indians,
and twenty-four times as criminal as the whites.
This speaks badly for the conduct of both whites
and blacks; for doubtless It is ia great part owing
to the degraded position assigned to the blacks by
their white brethren.

THE POSITION Off. SENATOR BELL, OFTENNjf .
"The Richmond Enquirer says that letteis from
Washington ducouecs it cs a fact that tbe black
republiaans, in. their flush confiden ce of succes?,
begin already to select a cabinet, and the one
carved out as most generally received it: State De
partment, Spta'ter Bank;; Trtasury, John Bell of
Tennessee; Interior, John Minor Bott3 of Virginia;
War Department, J. Watson Webb, of New York;
-Navy, 'Henry Winter Davis, of Maryland; Post'
Master General, Fitz Henry Warren, of Iowa;
Attorney General, Gov. Chase, of Ohio. This is
seriouely the programme of a cabinet"
The above item is copied,into the.New York Tri'
hunt by Gbeelt, and commented on with much
apparoct satisfaction. Greely does not question
the accuracy of the report, Sana tor Bell having
previously enlisted the warmest compliments from
that paper. Greely, in his paper, says:
"At all event this does not look very much like
that proscription of the South and exclusion of
slaveholders from office, about which tbe Richmond
Enquirer and its affiliated prints have made such
a rumpu3. Even the Commercial Advertiser of
this city, which copies this paragraph with great
gusto, must admit that three members of the cabi
net ont of seven i3 a pretty fair allowance. Nor
are the persons proposed, according to these Wash
ington letters, to be selected, mere puppets, a9 is
too often the case with the northern cabinet offi
cers selected by southern Presidents. No6ody can
dispute that with Bell, Botts, and Winter Davis
in the cabinet, the slavetoldiog interest would be
atronclv, B8well as respectably, represented; tho'
the Richmond Enquirer certainly, and perhaps the
Commercial Advertiser, would prefer to see Biooks
and Herbert joint Secretaries of War, with String
fellow or Atchison Secretary of the Interior, and
perhaps Mayor Woodjat the head of the Treasury."
Tbe aboro, taken in connection with the recent
compliment payed to Senator Bell by Seward in
his speech at Detroit, may be taken as confirma
tory of previous reports that, in the event of Fre
mont's election, Tennessse is tc famish a member
of his cabinet
Greely thinks that with Bell, Botts and Davis,
"the slavehoIdiDg interest would be strongly rep
resented." Greely may be sincere in this opinion,
but we take it that the people of the South will
not be likely to think as he does on this subject.
It is hardly possible that any one who would give
satisfaction to tho one wonld meet"theapproval of
This cordial understanding which seems to ex
ist between our Senator and the Fremont party,
may account somewhat for tho anxiety evinced by
his organ in this city, the Banner, for tho triumph
of tbe'black republicans in tho elections that havo
recently como off in P ennsylvania and Indiana.
Col. Bell is certainly a n adroit politician. He is
not a carder who plays for excitement, but for suc
cess. If Mr. Fillmore is successful in carrying
Tennessee, Col. Bell having won the lead, may
still continue to wear his Senatorial honors. If
Fremont is successful in the general result, the
Senator may be elevated to a position in the cab
inet In no event, therefore, can he be materially
damaged, except by the general success of the
Democratic party. In that event, he becomes a
lost mariner on a desolate t tone a wandering, for
saken, desolate old man. In that desolation, Col
Bell can have but little of the sympathy of the
people of Tennessee, who have so often trusted
him and whom ha has eo often deceived. For it is
no longer to be disguised that liis fortunes are more
kindly cared for by the enemies of the South than
by her friends.
FILLMORE STATE ELECTOR OUT FOR BUCHANAN.
From the following card, which we cb'p from the
Clarkesville Tobacco Plant, it will be Been that
Henry Wood, C3q., lately appointed Fillmore elec
tor for the Petersburg Vadistrict, has patriotically
resigned his post and come out strongly for Bu
chanan. Read his reasons. They are the same
that have influenced thousands of old whigs at tbe
South to unite with the democratio party in the
present contest Mr. Wood, it is said, intends tak
ing an active part in the canvass:
Clarkesville September 29, 1854.
Dear Sir: Your letter of the 24 instant inviting
mc to meet in discussion the Hon. Wm. O. Goods
at your next court came to hand last evening. I
hasten gratefully to acknowledge the compliment
it implies, and to express my thankfulness for the
honor done me by t It a Central Committee at
Richmond and the late convention at Petersburg in
appointing me Fillmore elector for this district So
soon as information of my appointment wa3 official
ly given to mo by Col. R. O. Britton and others,
committeefor thatjpurpose, I wrote to them declin
ing to accept the office which they tendered; that
whilst my long cherished politcal principles had un
der gone no material modification or change, yet the
change of circumstances and parties rendered it
necessary, in order to maintain those principles,
that I should act in the present canvass with the
southern party which supports Mr. Buchanan for
the presidency. The great issue before the country
is between free-soilism on the one hand and demo
cracy on the other. With this understanding, I hes
itate not to declare for democracy. No man who
loves tho Union, and knows anything of its value,
will have the least difficulty iu such a contest. All
party considerations will yield to tbe noble senti
ment of patriotism, and the affiliation becomes
easy. All admit that there should be no division
amongst us iu it.e present crisis, and all know that
division exists. How shall it be healed, and we of
the South be brought to act inooncert? thus pre-
sentinc to the enemies of our country a mighty
host, animated by the same spirit of freedom and
love of liberty, whose moral power must bo felt
and acknowledged throughout the land. Surely
tho weaker party ought not to exact compliance
of the stronger. Then the problem is solved, and
there is nothing lett tor us in tne Soutn but to nrm
ly,unitedly, and as one man, vote for Mr. Buchanan.
i am, my dear sir, witn very great respect, your
obedient servant, Henry wood.

A SIGNIFICANT FACT.
The single fact stated in the following despatch
that whilst the Fillmore procession was passing
Independence Square, Philadelphia, where the
Fremonters were holding their meeting, "the two
masses joined in dieering he Uuion ticktl' diesi
pates the idie stories which charge that the Bu
chanan and Fillmore men are arranging a combi
nation of theif forces:
"Philadelphia, October 9. The while citiy is
a scene of excitemnet to-night, each ot tne three
great political parties holding mass meetings the
republicans in independence square, tne iriena ot
Mr. Fillmore in Central Square, and the Democrats
at the comer of Second and Dock streets. The
republican meeting is very large, and the speakers
are holding forth from four stands. While tho
speaking was going on the Fillmore procession
passed tbe square, where the two masses joined
in cheering tbe Union ticket."
No stronger proof of a cordial sympathy between
know-nothings and black republicans could be fur
nished, unless it is found in the fact that the
know-nothings are giving their hearty support to
a State ticket in which they know that black re
publicanism predominates. That the sucess of
this ticket would oe a e remoni viciury re suuwh
to the know-nothings who support it. It is absurd
for men to support such a ticket and pretend
to ba friend3 of Fillmore. Washington Union.
A Nioqer Military Company at Nkwport.
The Newport correspondent of tho Baltimore Sun,
in a letter to that paper under date of the 5th
inst, after mentioning the visit made to that port
by the United State3 practice ship Plymouth, has
"Tho Plymouth i3 not the only strange visitor
we have had within the last fonr days, for yester
day a steamer from Providence brought to our
city an organized and armed military company
composed entirely of negroes, headed by a band
of white musicians. This is something new, that
an armed company of this character has been al
lowed in our midst, and tho day is rolling around
when we shall have cause to regret it. I learn,
also, that this "turn out" was to celebrate the an
niversary of the insurrection of the blacks at Hay
ti, when the whole white population was massa
cred or had to fly for their lives. What are we
coming to? Well may our southern brethren be
aroused when such things are sanctioned and en
couraged by the abolition portion of the north."

Messrs. Editors: Yesterday agreeablato ap
pointment Capt. James "Williams delivered a very
able address to the citizens of Raane at this place,
I have not time to enter into a full report of his
speech, but can assure you that it wa3 pronounced
by all to' have been quite a masterly effort such
a one as the Captain alone can make. Our citizens
were perfectly delighted and gratified beyond ex
pression at the bold and fearless manner in which
he meets the issues, giving no quarters whatever
to sectionalism or rel'gioos bigotry, but annihilat
ing them at the oust t. BU great forte, at least
he enlarged more extensively upon the late "bogus
Wbig Convention," and when he came down
upon its late operations he caused a fluttering
throughout the house that he was well nigh ex
hausting the Iait bit of consolation that they had
left, as he demonstrated conclusively that the whole
afftir was a know-nothing trick from first to last,
that if any thing was wanting to stamp tbe word
bogus indollibly upon its face the " cordial ap
proval" by that body of the nomination of A. J.
Donelson would be sufficient, and that it had
thereby forfeited the legitimate tittle which it had
arrogated and was only intended to bamboozle
old-line whigs into the support of Fillmore, and
was the last effort of a disaffected, distorted, dis
membered, disbandsd, dismayed, discomfitted, dis
abled, disgraced, defeated, degraded, denationalized,
demoralized, desperate party, and ought to be in
dignantly frowned upon by old line whigs through
out the Union as. unworthy either of their confi
dence or support. In the course of his remarks
he made several happy hits that fell very heavily
upon the bruised carcass of -Sam, end favored us
with Beveral" Reflections and Suggestions," dished
out in his usual spicy manner, which will tell in
November next. Roane.
An Incendiary Sheet. The Saturday Evening
Post, a pretended literary journal, published in
Philadelphia, and enjoying an extensive circulation
in the South, is insidiously attempting to propagate
abolition doctrines and to aid the cause of black
republicanism generally. It teems with one sided
statements in regard to Kansas, designed to bring
the Southern settlers and their cause into disrepute
and is engaged in republishing Mrs. Stowe'a new
abolition novel. We would warn our citizens
against this vile Bheet Its circulation in the South
must be suppressed. Miisistippian.
EST An attempt appears to have been made to
get up a Fremont electoral ticket in Missouri; but
from the tone of tbe papers in that State, it would
appoar to be a somewhat hazardous pursuit of
notoriety were any over ambitious men to attempt
to canvass tbe State as Fremont electors. Such a
ticket would perhapsjeceive a few hundred votes
in St Louis.
