solved to fstipj and nee ithey could not
get some better food than they had

were about to depart, tlu gentleman oi

a public speaker. Ho replied that

tho North, he had been requested by a
friend to rej.ntt tu him, if, in his tiav
fin, he abould Cud a certain William
fsprowtd. who had left tho North, be
tween two day, deeply in debt. At
an appointment which Kid. McKtu
cev had in Dalian Count v, Texas, this
man Sprowel came to him and made
himself knowu. Lid. McKinnev, after

kuown McKinnev for 30 years had
just coma into that County and heard
of this meeting and went to it. After

The only remarkable feature of the
day was the adoption of a resolution
proposing a coalition electoral ticket
with the Dougla fragment, upon the
express condition that the vote should
be eventually given to the Democratic
candidate who could by it be elected,
or most neatly elected. This will
place our Douglas pufTers and blower
in a ad dilemma. If they refuse to
accept tho proposition, they tacitly
acknowledge that Breckinridge i
stronger than Dougla, and that the
voto of Indiana would have to be
given to him. Again: their refusal to
compromise, to accept this olive
branch tendered them,- will show a
faetiotiK and turbulent spirit on their
part; a willingness to ce this great
national party, the only hope of the
couutiy and the Union, hopelessly
and ruiuously divided.
Upon the other hand, if the reich
accede to the terms, it will be a hu
miliating I nock under to Blight and
Fitch. It will diow that thev hue
no confidence in their strength, no
hope of success without taking the
seceders again into their confidence.
Then this alliance would be most un
natural, if tho Winchester Democrat,
Jere. Smith and James Brown are to
be relied on: because the)' have long
since proved to the satisfaction of erry
hody. that the Breckiniidgo men ore
disorgani:ers,ßre eater$ and dit union
ists. They have shown that Bright,
Fitch, Buchanan or Co. joined" the
the Demokratie party to destroy it."
Now, Uro. Democrat, would n't it
look pretty to sec you Union-saving,
pious, patriotic, slavery-hating, non
intervention national men, coalescing
with these factionists nnd fire-eaters-,
slave-coders and nulliiiers these dis
turbers and destroyer. ri the Demo
spirators" to save thern from defeat.
What a fall, my countrymen!"
What do our foreign fellow-citizens
who vote tho Dmocratie ticket, think
of this? Do they propose to allow
themselves to be sold and delivered to
this proscriptivc party?

It was but a little while until the
man came who was to move him snd

son were with them. Having trav
eled about lli miles. M Kinney walk
ing all the way, tho diiver iu-isted
that he should tide and diive a shoit
dtancc. He accordingly put his gun
in the wagon, and took a seat as
driver. He had driven but a short
dUtaucc, when, in crossing a ravine,
they were met by nin men, two of
them with guns. MeKjnney's wife
became frightened, and held on to him
so that he was powri les. They rob
bjil the old man Blunt of his gun, his
"btavo" son running ofi and left his
father in the hands of the mob. Thev
took them back to tho county town,
about 13 miles, where they said they
should havo an oppottunity of giv
ing an account of their abolitionism.
MeKinney'h wife was left at a man's
houso near town, and ho and Blunt
were put in jail. Between 3 and 4
o'clock in tho morning, the jail was
unlocked and they were ordered out,

Our Mrctliif on Saturday.
The republican meeting at this
place on Saturday was, so far as the
attendance was concerned, a most
humiliating failure. This is the truth
about it, and wo would not disguise it
if wo could. The late rains kept m.mv
of our peoplo back in saving" their har
vests, and thev remained at home in
their fields, while others were cither
too lukewarm or too lazy to come out.
For the lirst class there is some excuse;
for tho latter none; und wo offer no
apology for them.
In every tiling but the crowd, the
meeting was a decided success. The
speeches of Mr. Smith ami Mr. (3on
Ijon were excellent ones in every sense
of that word. Mr. (ion no spoke for
an hour, upon tho relative positions of
tho political parties. Ho di.-seeted
Doug'as and his policy in a manner
which was very unsatisfactory to cer
tain of that gentleman's worshipers
who were present. Mr. (j. is n good
logician, and makes an unanswerable
Ho was succeeded by Mr. Smith in
a speech of more than two hours,
which was certainly one of the most
eloquent we havo ever been permitted
to hoar. Any attempt on our pa:t to
i;ivo an analysis of it would but do it
injustice. Wo ore sorry that it was
not heard by every voter in Randolph
County. At soma future day in the
campaign we höpu to bo able to pro-
j euro these gentlemen's services aain.
when we promise them such a meeting
us has never been held in Old Ran

not lack zeal, generally speaking, and
we believe that at a future dav thev
will teach the Democracy that they
ate still alive.
In this connection we must not for
get to thank the Winchester Comet
Band for their services. They added
much to the interest of the occasion lv
their verv excellent music. Thev are
entitled to the thanks of tho Republi

We hope you are satisfied. We
havo answered, giving our authority.
How do yon like it?
In ISotj tho Democracy told the
people lhat Slavery could not exist
without local law cieating nnd sustain
ing it. Now one wing of the party
says that tho constitution creates and
protects Slaveiy in all the Territories
ol the country, and the other wing in
sists that the slave-holder has the same
right to take his sla'.es into n Terii
tory that a Northern man has to take
his horses or his tattle; that Noithern
propei ty, and propeity in the blood,
bones, sitvnvs, museles and souls ol
men may enter this common domain
upon terms of perfect equality. This
is tho fanaticism of thi latter day De
mocracy. How can they ask support
at the hands of Northern freemen?
The Democratic party is an extra
ordinary party. It is gifted with in
dividuality. Ten and twelve venia
ago it was fully and completely com
mitted to the doctrine of intervention
for tho exclusion of Slavery from the
Territories-. In 1S54 it was in favor
of non-intervention, and proposed to
let the people have slave property in
the Teriitories or not as they pleased.
At both of theso periods it was de
votodly attached to free soil and free
n'x)r, and condemned slavery without
stint. But another change has comtf
over the spirit of its dream. This un
changeable party has again changed.
The Constitution now, in its opinion,
gives Slave property the right to plead
itself in freo soil in defiance of Con
gress, or tho Territorial legislatures;
yet their "principles are unchangeable
in their very nature when opposed to
the same subject matter."
Douglas speaks of n' thing but tho
g-r e-a-t p-r-i-n-c-i-p-l-e of Popular
Sovereignty. Jeems Brown and Jere.
Smith are his imitators on a small
scale. While they are talking so
glibly about telf government, why is it
that they have not had the courage to
tell in just ictn the people have the
tight to govern themselves in a Ter
ritory? When is it, gentlemen? Be

what it was in 1S5G. although Breek

elect him? Did you intend to cheat
i he people, or have you been cheated?
Take cither horn ot the dilemma and
you are in a fix.
Tho Democratic party has sold itself
out, body and soul, to the Supreme
Court of tho United State. By its
Baltimore platform it refers the future
platforms of the party to Judge Tanev,
and pledges itself to believe whatever
he says, and do whatever ho bids.

Don W. F I)r.noi,T, Democratic

put him on exhibition nt somo four

Tho show will be free to all, except
Abolitionists, and other persons who
may bo in favor of allowing negroes
to swear in courts of jnstico against
white folks. For particulars of the
performance address the manager at
that party commenced a scries of Sab'
bath day meetings, but th success of
the first one was so ovtrultlrxlng lhat
they resolved that Douglam could
not afford to hold a second. The fact
is honorable to tho people of Kgypt,
but most disgraceful to the men whose
"Poster" has gibbeted themselves.
Those who are acquainted with the
political worthies of this part of Illi
nois will recognize in "Col. Morri

Lowry Donaldson Morrison, once a
strong supporter of Lovejot, while
the said Don was a M. C. Lately he

ment ma le no small stir, and the Rev'd
Editor of tho "Democrat" was called
upon by the moro religious part of his
readers for some explanation of the
matter, this he gave, as usual, by a
lie, asserting that the appointment of
the Sabbath as the day for the Barbe
cue, grew out of a mistake of the prin
ters, Saturday being the dav intended.
The falsehood oi theRev'd Editor was
iromptly refuted by affidavits mads
iy the compositor and pi inter, who
stated that they called the attention of

was told that Sunday had been chosen
