Our Political History from
1820 to 1860.
"''TW. ., - j w.r..n .
The political storm whioh threatened
to burst in 1851 was defeated by the
statesmanship of Fillmore and Webster
and their mends, baoked up and in dors
ed by nearly the whole' strength ot the
Demooratio organization ot tne united
States. The waves bf the scs, whioii ha.d
been so tremendously agitated, aid not,
however, immediately calm down. For.
oible resistance to the execution of the
Fugitive slave Law, one of tha oorc pro
mise measures, was made in several pla
ces in the North, and the pub,ia temder
in relation to it was generaljy irritable
and hostile. At this juncture the Presc
idettiaielootion of 1852 oame on. ' The
Domooraoj, unable to agree upon any of
the prominent Presidential' candidate?,
such aa Cass. Buchanan, Douglas and
Marcv. nominated a new and unheard of
mao for : that post, General i Franklin
Pierce.: of New Hampshire. He1 had a
long political experience,', both in the
House: and io the Senate, had been a
gallant volunteer in the Mexioan war,
acd was generally known a.a a public man
of Gna talents, undoubted Oem'ooraoy
and unsullied oatriotiam.. - This record
he-nobly sustained through the eventful
eta of hi:, Administration. The Whig
party was greatly embarrassed io tho se
lection of a nominee.; Its eminent lead-
er, if not the author of its being, Henry
Clav. after: a political servioa of half a
century in duration after a late glorious
ma'nifestatio.n in whioh he disoarded par
ty for oountrv io supporting the compro
mise agreement, whioh gave peace to the
country, was dying id that capital wbion
had been so long the theater of his tri
iimphs. Jie was therefore out of the
question.- But .his great, yei, by far
greater, .qolleague in the party. Daniel
Webster, was still in the field and anx-
Hoauta obtain the prize. The prejudU
oes growing out of his early FederaJisMtufe-
wen) 8ttD8idjDh0 bad lately rendered
a"ba"TtWW-fward hopefully to be re
rnembered.by it.. Itseemod thathis time,
si) long and anxiouly waited for, had at
last corno. President TlT11hnrA whose
Administration had deserved 'bo- weJT""Tb(
confidence of his party ' was Jikewise
anxioua for the indorsement of a re-eleo
tioDi- Bat the Northern section of the
party oould nover forget or forgive him
or Mr..Webster.for their couise io regard
to the Compromise Measures. They

he had lately receive, V draw out whioh
was the object bf the visit, to Air. Web
sterrB house, ' It was a tatification speeoh
that afforded 'unbounded merriment to
the Democrrtid party at the time. The
result cf the" election' proved that the
people had been tired of running 'after
military: glory tq'pnt in high civil posU
tions. . Of the thirty-obe' States' General
Scott received but' four, two. Northern
and two Southern.' and. only got forty
two electoral Votoa out of two hundred
and ninety-six which were oast.'- This
contest is, memorable from the fact 'that
it was the last JNational appearance in
the politioaI; field bf ; the ' Whij: party,
wmon had so lately swept lhe oountry in
the plentitude 6f its power. ' It followed
Messrs! Clay and "Webster,', who Ijoth
died that year, into the tomb, and its im
mense hosts were merged into other, and
far morefor 'the oountry dangerous,
political organizations. Tor a short time
tbe Demooratio party1 a)ood alone1 , in the
politioal field,' without a rival before it
who dare dispute its prowess. ' ' It ws a
perilous position, as the event proved.
It was-like taking the boopa orf a barrel
The 'rnass of ' the Whig party and other
dissatisfied . politioal elements in dur
ranks, immediately formed a secret oorar
binatioo against all who were of foreign
birth, with the design of taking from
them all the politioal rights and privile
ges they bad acquired. Being deeply
founded in popular prejudice and passion,
j tbe politiosl field, who was the
and being enshrouded In Tail of mys-
tery, it swept the North like a tornado,
from Maine to California; It was-powerfully
aided, howevelr, , by ' one event,
that again renewed, in more than its
former fieroeness, the Northern anti
ilavery agitation. Theso-callod Miesoui
n Compromise was repealed, it was the
singular destioy of that hapless measures
to convulse the oauntry from its center
to its circumference when it passed, to
be a eonataot source ol discord and op
probrium while it lasted, and yot to cre
ate a still greater storm when it was
abrogated. Tbe throes of its doath ago
nies wore even! more dreadful than those
that attendod its. birth, whioh had pro
foundly alarmed Mr, Jufferson for the
future peace abd harmony ot tho union.
The anti-toreiuo exoitemont met witn
a Check io the Virginia election, and was
finally defeated io all the Southern States.
Bat for that iti would have aocompiisbed
its mission,' and forever difafranobised the
foreign element. With the. proverbial
gratitude of parties, however, those whoq
tbe South had en gallantly served, or, at
least, a large and controlling portion of
thorn, immediately united with their late
Northern enemies io a bittor crusade up
on those who had protected them, and
even moved at the head of the assaulting
column, first into the National eounoils
and then into the tented field.
The agitation against foreigners than
being foiled, all the agitators, of every
sort and every degree, combined under
the flag of anti-slavery agitation. It was
like the rod of Aaron, whioh swallowed
up all all. other rods, or like the great
brazen serttent that swallowed up an
other and smaller Berpents. Again, how
ever, we obtained a brief respite. In tho
election of 1856 the Demooraoy triumph

statesman, James Buob; of Pennsyl
vania. Preside or th6 United States,
overjotut-U Fremont, a young adven
oandtdate of the anti-slavery agitators,
then, for the first time, banded together
under the name of Republicans. The
oireumstancos that attended the "trfeoti
were ominous, and showed the tremeod
strides the sectional party had made.
'Every' Southern Staje but one had voted
for Mr. iiuchanan, but only rive jNoxth
ero States had given . him thejr . votes,
and all of them by. plarahtios, instead ot
a majority. , Indeed, he would have been
defeated had it not been for the vote of
the single State of Pennsylvania. In all
the other Northern tates the .Radicals
were ia large and evcrwheloiing majori
ues. ...: ,..r .

i-the passions of the people were daily
beoomiag greater and more bitter, and
everjK thing 'presaged, that a dreadful
storm was in the wind, and' that, without
skillful pilotage, tbe country would be,
wrecked. Only--one- oonoeolicg -Jink
then held the Confederacy together, and
preserved ; the poaoe'of the land. All
Other political and eooleuiastical organi
zations had beenundered as if there wore
threa'ds of 'gQSBBinor, instead ot great
Nation at cable of iron; " Although some-
what ruptured'and broken, at Charlea.
too and at Baltimore, in I860, at the
Demooratio National Convention, by (he
blindnei's and infatuation of the Southern
loaders, there was yet sufficient vitality
in it to have preserved the Union 1 in
peaoe if it had been victorious in the
elections of that year. But it- was bei
ten beaten undor the lead 'of anabje
and eminent'1 statesman, Stephen. A.
Douglas, whose defeat at the polls snap
pei'the last link assunder that kept tbe
Confederacy in a unity;
, A greater compliment was never paid
m a result to a political party. Look
where the country was' the day it was
overthrown,. . and thoo look at it six
months after yee, six days after. Then
it was soon, indoed, that the last anohor
of the ship of State had given way, and
liuut tuu lUBUiovium ui utvu uuiuiuutiuu
lad parted and' that' we' were io the
midst of tbe boiling eddies and tremend
ous sweep of tbe (orrent. It was an un
fortunate day, the blackest in oiif oalen'
dar., ' How our history would have been
ohanged, if Sir. Douglas, instead 'of Mf.
lilhooin,7ha4 been eieoteaj vnat nir
ferent pages would have been pot in Our
annals. , How muoh more glorious bur
present, and how much brighter the
future. It almost makes the heart sick
to think of, the. awtul. and. irreparable
politioal mistake the people then made,
It was the greater even from the charac
ter of the man whom tne people cad
chMeoMt.f 'Abraham ':;Linooln.;',
fear Mr. Douglas must be held respon.
siblo for tbe fataf locraey of this man.
It was the acceptance by Mr. Douglas of
a challenge lor public- uisenssion sent
him bv Linoolo.' while they were candi
dates for United States Senator, in 1858,
tnai gave mm ajidooiu j pruuiuauuc.
It conferred upon him that kind of emit
nenoe that .woulli bejgaided by John
Smith, whom Daniel .Webster might
have screed to meet in debate: It was
thn reflection of a borrowed luster. ; It
waa a foolish, onesided arrangement.
Mr Douzlua was an orator and a. states
man, and oould draw crowds any-where
to hear him speak.' Mr. Lincoln was
neither, and oonld pot get an audience.
It war, therefore, foolish in Mr. Douglas
to give him ebanoo it crowds, which
his name had the means of getting to
gather. Upon tho strength of , some
stnar) speohesr little above the average,
the joint product of his party counselors
and of tbe reporters, Mr. Lincoln was
nominated for President at the Chicago
Convention. - The first words 'he spoke
alter the ' obotion, his remarks on his
wsy to Washington, in different plaees,
showed how grossly the people hid Jeeo
deceived in their man. , They were the !
feeblest of puerilities.' "They were not;
only beneath criticism, but almost be
noath contempt, and brought the blush
of shame unto bis friend's and support
ers. .. .
Journeying to Washington, declaring
that nobody was hurt, and measuring,
baok to baolr, with the tall men whom he
met on his way, with an utter want of
dignity or sense ot propriety, the President-elect
at laBt readied the seat of
Government, and the curtain fell upon a
eloiious sun, to rise upon a most disgrace
ful part of our history, in whioh tbe chief
performers were as shabby as the piece

Moses, who was probably a conservative,

He called them foul unclean beasts. It
is also very singular that bnoe ou a time

What will They do?
The President beoame disgusted "with the
rasoality and corruption or the party wmon
out bid in cower, and like an honest man,
turned his back upon it. Their Supreme
Court has also given it the cola shoulder ;
and now it only remains 10 be seen what the
negifoes will do when clothed, by them,
with.offioial robes. We believe the datkies
