Fremont in California
" The most afcsurd argumeut. we have' yet
becred urged in lavur ol tne election of Col
. Tremont , that maue tremendous exer
, tionsfor the prohibition of slavery in Cali
fornia. The New oik Tribune in a short
epeculation in regard ta the chances of Cali
' fornia casting ler vote for Fremout, refers to
his labors iu behalf of freedom in that State
and holds on that account he will most pro
bably receive a majority of its votes. We
. copy tho following from the Tribune, the
great exponent of Republicanism ;
"Califoknia. Ve have hesitated wheth
' er to class this as a free or slave State. . Itt
Constitution is free, for Fremont helped to
make it ; but an enormous influx of gamblers
and politicuns by trade, mainly from the
Southern cities, bus controlled its politics
ever since General Taylor's death. . .
But all her members of Congress, in both
houses, since Fremont was superseded, hare
voted as steadily aud thoroughly pro-slavery
as those from Virginia, While her late Know
Nothing Legislature voted almost unanimous
' Jy in deprecation of the choice of Mr, Banks
So they did, and in November next their
constituents will vote as cVprecatingly as to
the election of Col, Fremont.
, In regard to the above extract we have a
; few words to say. It cannot be denied,
; . that both previous to and since his nomina
tion, we have been willing to accord to Col.
Fremont every particle of praise to which
we thought he was entitled, but as to the
' efforts of Col. Fremont in relation to slavery
in California, il was certainly a new feature
to us-aud we have determined to ferret it
We have now before us a copy of the
Constitution of the State of Caliiornia. It
is signed by forty-eight delegates, and these
forty-eight were all the members of the Con-
. vention. Now Col. Fremont's name is not
T one of these forty-eight, he was not a mem
ber of the Convention nor bave we any re
cord of bis exertion in behalf of introduc
ing "freedom into California." We defy
. the Tribune Or any otherRepublican paper,
to produce authenticate evidence, to the
eftect that he had any influential part in
keeping slavery out of California.
In view .of this we repeat that Col. Fre
xno it, by no act of his own bos ever proven
himself dveree to slavery. , After the Con-
stitution of California was adopted, Col.
Fremont was sent as Senator to Congress and
' there he demonstrated bis riew in relations
to slavery. During the 21'dayshe served in
the Senate he cost three votes relative toslave-
ry, and EVERY ONE OF THEM WAS IN
FAVOR OF PRO-SLAVERY ISSUES

A few Plain Reasons for not

Voting for Buchanan.
WHY CANNOT I VOTE FOR FREMONT?
1st. BecAuei I love the Usioh 'and tle
CoNSTrnjTioir too well to rote for the ,Can

cannot aid in tricking them down, by voting
Tor a candidate who seeks power only by ex
citing and arraying one section of the coun

5lh. Because I will not. by votlncr for
Fremont, gratify the despotic tyrants of
liurupe, nuu looa anxiously lor nis success
as the first great entering wedge to the dis
solution of our glorious Union. '
6th. Because! will not vote for a man
who has lust of office, allies' himself with
a party who seek to do away with all civil
and religious liberty, and who would lierse-
cute aud deprive their fellow-citizens of
uieir nearest oirinngui uoerty oi conscience
and liberty of worship.
7th. Because he is the candidate of a par
ty, every measure of whom, since the days
of Washiugtion, has sought to curtail the
liberties of the people, and has been condemn
ed by them.
8th. Because, as a man, he has neither
the knowledge or experience necessary to fit
him for the station of Chief Magistrate of
ttiiE grat Republic, and only hopes to attain
it by allying together all the foul elements
of lanat'icisni, bigotry and anti-Republicanism.
9th. Because he seeks, by the influence
of his wealth, to control the suffrages of a
free and enlightened people.
ICth. Bkcausk, in James Buchanan and
John C. li.cckinridge, I have Convention
Candidates, choseu by the people of every
section of the Union, who seek the welfare
of the whole country and the preservation
of the Constitution, rather than their own
advancement. .' '
11 tli. Because, by voting for Buchanan
and Breckinridge, 1 aid to place in power
men of ocknowladged ability experience,
whose success will oind together, firmly,
every portion of our beloved country.
12. Because the el, frion of Buchanan aud
Breckinridce will show to the tyrants and
despots ot Europe' that our noble Union
cannot be shaken or severed by sectioual
agitation, or by the anti-Republicans, 'now
led on by Fremout.
- 13th Because 1 wish to see our Western
World still left onen, as an asylum for the
down trodden and oppressed of other lands
which bremont und the Know-nothing par
ty, with which be seek s alliance, would
shut out from them forever,
14th. Because the election of Buchanan
and Breckinridge will give peace to the coun
try, and destroy forever the sectional anti
Republican parly with which the country
is now cursed, and establish confidence in
the stability of Republican Institutions.
Let every man read and ponder these few
reasons. Let him consider well the present
state of the country and parties, and his du
ty to the whole Union, as an American citi
zen ; and he will, .he must come to the con
clusion, that he is bound to vote for Buchan
an and John C. Breckinridge not only as
the candidates of the only true National par
ty of the Union, but as being in themselves
the only can lidates now before the people, ot
character and experience for the time and the

Wonderful Escape from a Ferocious
In the town of Bridge water last week,
Brace Hall, a little son of Deacon Hall, of
that place, was grievously gored by a bull
and almost miraculously escaped with his
life. . " ' '
The bull was a fine young animal, whom
the lad only some nine years old had been
in the habit of driving, and it had never
manifested any considerable viciousness.
But boys who had a batliing-placein a brook
that runs through its pasture, had worried it
be shaking their clothes at it, and thus get
tins up the excitement of a chase, On Mon
day of last week, little Brace was passing
carelessly through the field where were some
forty animals, with this bull among them,
when it suddenly set upon him ana tossed
htm repeatedly upon his horns. A faithful
doe which accompanied the boy, attacted
the bull and caught upon its neck with firm
teeth. ' - . ' '
The bellowing and wild running about of
tne outer came in ine ueiu mauc up an- ex
citing scene. For about eight rods the bull
tossed the boy tearing his clothes completely
off from him, the boy all the time endeavor
ing to reach a fence so as- to escape. ' He
had already touched the boards,, when the
bull again tossed him, and his Lead struck
against the fence, tearing the scalp horribly.
Fortunately the horns of the animal had
Wrenched oft one of the boards, and 1 the
victim, still . selv possessed, esronhrough

adjacent lane., lie bull seemed more inten
selv maddened at this escape., and with al
most human sagacity turned down toward
an opening into the- lane soma distance off.
But the boy had meantime climbed over an
other fence, and was beyond the mad beast's
reach:-"v : .

Every Slave-Holder has five
One of the most common of all fraudulent
statements made by the orators of the oppo
sition is, that owing to the peculiar nature
of the institution of slavery .every slave-hold
er bas five votes, while Northern man bat
but one.- Sirnace as it may appear, we met a
man the other day w ho was willing to wager
that such was the fact. We need not add.
that he was eloquent upon the outraccous
advantage slaveowners have over free white
men at the North. Ibis misrepresentation
has b;en exposed often; but as il if often
thrown in the face of the Democracy by these
freedom shriekers," we will eiplain the
iruin ot tne matter again,
The subject is regulated by the Const itu
tion, which, iu Article 1, Sec. 2, has the fol
lowing; . .
"Representatives and direct taxes shall be
apportioned among the several States which
may be included in the Union, according to
their respective numbers.which shall be deter
mined by adding to the whole number of free
piovuo, juituuiiig uiun uuuuii 10 service
for a number of years, and excluding Indians
uot taxed, three -tilius ol ail other persons."
A few words will explain the practical on
era tion of this provision. In the State of
Illinois, all persons, men women and chil
dren, including all negroes, are included in
that population which is made the basis of
representation in Congress, bunposine the
ratio of the Representatives wis one member
ol.tongress or each -100,000 inhabitants
and that Illinois had a population of uue
million whites and 300,000 negroes,
yet, aa the negroes of Illinois are free, Illin
ois would be entitled to thirteen members
of Congress. But change the scene, to Ken
tucky. But suppose that Kentucky has anon
laution of the same number, and divided in tne
same proportion between whites and blacks
yet, because her negroes are slaves, she is not
entitled to thirteen Representatives. She
would be entitled to ten, for the million of
whites; but her 300,000 negroes only count
180,000, as federal population, and are less
than sufficient to entitle her two lleprefeuta
lives. Three hundred thousand negroes in a
free State, couut, in the apportionment of
Representatives, as so many white persons;
but the same number of negroes in a slave
Slate, are only counted, for a like purpose,
aa one hunded and eighty thousand persons.
The result is, that the slave States loose, un
der this provision of the- Constitution, two-
uithsot their negro population, in the ap
poriionmtnt oi iiemesentatives. ' lhe ne
gro population the North but small, when
compared with that of the South. But. in
the proportion that the negro- population of
we Mulh is greater tnan at the isorth, so is
the loss of the South, in the matter of repre-
t. I- . . , .. .l. , i
f-ciiuiuim. iiau uiaiing ma stave population
of he Southen S tates at the figures furnish
ed by the census of 1850, we find it stated to
ba3.1t8,3l. Ibis population is, numerical
ly, nearly equal to llmtbfllie six New Enc
laud States, and the States of Michigan and
laiiiorma added, the aggregate population
of these eight States was, in ItiSfy, 2,208.367.
Their aggregate representation in the house of
Representatives, is thirty-nvrj members.
While every man iu these eight States,
DiacK ana wmte is counted in the appoi tiou
of Representatives, the same number of per
sons at the South suffer a reduction of two
fifths. The advantage of this provision in
the Constitution is wholly on the side of the
North. Where the advantage is. can be dis.
tinctly seen by enquiring what the effect of
its repeal would be. Aooli?h the distinc
tion, and the North retains its present con
dition; but the federal population oi the South
would De increased in the proportion of two
fifths of the Slave population.
Tho voters in the State of Illinois are. ex
clusively, the white male citizens above the
age of twenty-one years. These men vote
for themselves for lhe women, children and
all the negroes in the Slate. The voters in
South Carolina are the white male citizens
above the age of 2 1 years, and they vote just
as the voters of Illinois do, for all. the men,
women, children and negroes in the State.
The only difference between this Stale and S.
Carolina is, that 93,700 negroes will give us
a Representative in Congress, while at the
oouth it requires over one hundred and fifty
thousand persons of that character to entitle
a Stale to a Representative in Congress.
When an abolitionist telis you that slave
owners vote three votes fur every five negroes
in uieir amies, answer mm mat tne only dit
fcrence between the free States and the Slave.
is, that at the South, five negroes count as
but three persons, while here they count as
The truth fit last.

The Truth from an English
The London (Eng.) Post, iu an article
upon American politics, says: .
"It is impossible not to see that this slate
of i.hings implies considerable doubt as to
the upshot of the contest for the Presidential
chair. It is equally undeniable that the
ominatiou of Cot Fremont ouly compli
cates this state of things. That the nomina-
N ion' tends to brin the North and South in
to a deadly combat it also makes it proba
ble that the election of a President, will be
thrown upon the House of Representatives;
and in either case it is hard to say whet the
issue will be."-.- "
"That nomination (Fremont's) tends to
bring the North and South into deadly com
bat." Truer words than the above were
never uttered. A fact which it denied at
home by unscrupulous and reckleg polil"
cians, is evident enough to intelligent men
abroad. The enemies of the A meiica n Un
ion in Europe rejoice and chuckle over the
prospect of the sundering of the ties which
bind together thit confederation of States.
They aro pleated with the thought that
the "North and South" are to be brought in
to "deadly combat," knowing that the strug
gle will put an end to our present tystem of
government, which is now the abhorrenof
and dread of despotism.by the force of its ex
ample, all over the world. It is a "deadly
combat" to the American Uuion, which the
Black Republicani have now initiated.
They are seeking to array sixteen Northen
States, in a solid body, against the fifteen
Southern States, upon a sectional icwe.
They have nominated a candidate for Presi
dent in a convention in which no Southern
man did or could, with honor and self-respect,
take a part. He is supported by an exclu
sive sectional platform, that one great divis
ion of the Union cannot and will not st nd
upon. . .
Nothing is mora certain, than that. A
"deadly conflict' between the North and the
South is inevitable, in case the Northern
sectional party trumph at tbeelection. Not
since the revolution has a greater responsi
bility rested upon true American and na
tional patriots, than at the present juueture;

fruits ol that glorious struggle will be lost.
Unless they would tee the North and South
engaged in an angry und desperate struggle,
that could'have no other result a sepemtion
aud dissolution of the links that new con

fanatical diiuulonists of the North who
meet in to-called national convention, with
but a rreotmnhical half of tha Union repre
sented; and who already iu their meeting
bear flags with but sutecnatates irometec

The influence of no foreign foe, adverse to
the perpetuity of our institutions,, is half as
much to be dreaded as that misguided and
deluded organization which is mustering un

this canvass. It must ana will be over

The Woolly Horse.
The following advertisement has been rak

newspapers, from a file of a New York-City
Col. Fbemost's Nohdebceiit, oa Woolly

the corner of Broadwey and Reade
street, previous to his departure for London.

The above "complex" animal-somehow
seems to bear a wonderful resemblance to
Mr. Fremont himself. Certainly, of all per
sons ever captured for the Presidential race,
he is "Nature s Last," and "the richest speci
men ever received from California,' or any
Other country. Xew York Day-hook. .
We recollect very well that at the time
this Woolly Horse first made its appearance
from the advertisements and notices in the
eastern papers,the impression got abroad that
Col. Fremont was himself concerned in the
exhibitions. The above advertisement shows
how it was done.
"The Ostend Manifesto."
'Republican' are a
howl' over the'Ostend Manifesto,' signed by
James Buchanan. Let it be read! Are these
patriots ready to ww that these United
Stales are not worthy of self-preservation,
and that self-preservation is not the first of
nature s laws? Hear what Mr, Buchanan
says: .' ' -
"The United States has never acquired a
foot of territory except by fair purchase, or,
as in the case of Texas, upon the free and
voluntary application of the people of that
independent State, who desire to blend, their
destines with our own. Even our acquisi
tions from Mexico are no exception to tlie
rule, because, although we might have claim
ed them by the right of conquest, in a just
war; yet we purchased them, lor what was
then considered by both parties a full and
ample equivalent. Our past history forbids
that we should acquire ike Island of Cuba
without the consent of Spaln unless justified
by the great law pf aelt-preservaUou. We
must, iu any event, preserve our own con
scious rectitude, and our own self-respect. "

More of Fremont's Financial
the money the N.
York Dny Book continues to follow up and
expose the financial transactions of Palmer,
Cook, Fremont & Co. He says .
"There bas not been, so far as we can yet
learn, any account received of any remittan
ces by Palmer,-Cook Ac Co., to pay the divi
dends on the California securities, the money
for which thev received and which thev fail
ed to pay over on the 1st ini-t., when due iu
New York; neither have Messrs. Palmer,
Cook fit Co. published a card or offered any
excuse for their defalcation, although one of
their nirra is iu Washington, attending to
loe -roll ine land claims throueh Coneresa.
and they have also an aged resident In thin
city in person of a Mr. Cook. " '
"this defalcation has been one or peculiar
hardship to many poor families in N. York.
Gold-diggers and laboring men in Califor
nia were, in many cases, induced to purchase
California? per cents., and San Francisco
city 6 per cent, bonds, and remit coupons to
hzt families for their support, instead of
sending gold dust. The wife ofa California
citizen railed upon Mr Cook, the reputed
agent oi iiib urn in una city, wun coupons
she had received, and wished to gel the mon
ey for them, when she was told that he had
none to give her, - 'What shall I do with
the coupons?' said she, shall I send them
back, or keep them?' '1 cannot advise
you,' said the agent, 'you must do just as you
please. And this was all the satisfaction
she could obtain.
"The news of the non payment of the 1st
of July, dividends, in this city, by Palmer,
Cook q Co., had not reached California, and
we shall not probably learn its effect intbat
Stale until the next arrival from San Francis
co, which will be between the 5lhand 10th
of August. The iuterest on the unpaid divi
dends now amount to about 8500. No de
nial has been published by any member of
the firm of Palmer. Cook & Co., or by Col.
Fremont, or by one under their direct au
thority, of the assertion that Col. Fremont
is the partner of tha above firm, in lhe Bar
ron Slid Bolton and other land claims in Cal
ifornia, besides the Mariposa grant. ( The
truth is, they cannot sucessfully deny it.
They are partners, to all intents and purpo-
ses, in a grand and extensive land jobbing
speculation, including a large number of
land claims' trumped up in California, and
wbich they are endeavoring to get confirmed
in Washington. These gentlemen not only
go in for free possession of landa, but they
go in also for freedom for taxation, .'
"While Palmer, Cookfic Coin California,
resisted, by lgal injunctions and otherwise,
payment of 48,000 State tax imposed on the
Mariposa land grant, wt find that Col. Fre
mont, on the 24th of June, 1856, went be
fore Tax Commissioner J. W. Allen, for the
city of New York, and swore off the per- ,
soual taxes for wbich he had been assessed, by
making an affidavit that he was not worth a
dime over and above his debts and libilities,
and had his name erased from the city tax "
books. Notwithstanding this, he went into ,
Wall-street sejven days afterward and offered
his notra, through a friend, to raise a loan of
$60,000, with which to save the credit of his
partners, Messrs. Palmer, Cook tfr Co."
The cause of the failure of Palmer, Cook
& Co. to' pay the dividends on the California
secuiities which had been transmitted to them
lies.uiidoubledly.inthe fact thatthe money had
been spent ta electioneering purposes. Many
papers have been bought up outright and
induced to come out for Fremont, while oth
ers have had their zeal stipulated by large do
nations. The Black Republicans are unusu
ally flush in money, and are spending it free
ly. Palmer, Cook $ Co., aud the Kansas
aid swindlers can undoubtedly tell where it
comes from, aud the object sought to be at
tained. Never, in the history of this country,
was there tuch a grand scheme perfeciH!yi
stock-jobbing political i aiUiRTSloget the
Government to forward their mercenary and
personal ends, aa is now sought to be ac
complished by the election of Fremont.
The people, when they understand the game,
will take care that.it does not succeed.

"Upon Col. Fremont's arrival at Taos.
Major Beall, commander at that post ordered
tlie commissary to issue to the-Colonel thir

These rations were never turned over to the

- That is even as bad as the cattle story, 1 1
is Cot only appropriating public property tu
bit own use, but taking the bread out of the
mouths of hungry fellow-travelers. It is a
singular fact that Col. Fremont's traveling
and army companions are almost unanimous

is tbe testimony of Kern as it at first ap
peared in tlie Quiucy (111.) Whig. Kit Car

him in his explorations, Commodore Shenck,
Col Mason, Commodore Stockton, Gen.
