FALL ELECTIONS, TIHE SUMMING UP. mi
The Fall elections are now all over and the qnes.
tion as to our next President, Is settled beyond the
possibiilty of a doubt. It now remains for us to ex- mi
,rt ourselves to curry out this decision by the largest . dt
it.tolble majorities in order to put a final quietus to' as
th factieious combinations and their machinations to. vi
destroy the Unloun and the Constitution of this Iair
and glorious republic, both in the Nortlh and in the ]
It is hardly necessary to refer to the elections in
the: South. T'lhey indicate a olid and united front fr
ol' all theII muthiel States for Mr. Buchanlan. o0
Maryland, the only qllestiollnable State heretofore, et
in her late election for Mayor of Baltimore by so se
smIall t majority, satisites us that she has ilso rent N
ussulnder her Know Nothing shackles anld wheeled at
into line, conpleting the solid front of the South. fi
In the freel Sttes. the battle has beent tboaght glo- tl
rioitsly and antfntully by thle tational and constitu- cl
tioanl mnc of the Demcrauey and old linte Whigs. In it
Colnn etieltt, tIhe victory over the Black Republicans p
and Fillmortt Know Nothillngs united, is of a decisive vi
indication for hMr. Bluchallinan it November next. In ft
P'ennsylvanlia antd Itldianua. where the shameful ulion )I
of Fl'emonlt und Fillmore men was complete anid p
they jointly exrtedi atll theilr powers of falsehoodtl. i
l'auIds and money to defeat the l)emocracy, single tl
hbtuded, we have overecuile all oppO itioui, most trl- e
uiuphai.tly and most gloriously. These States will C
secure the election of ,James Utcehatlnan to the next tl
Pl'residetncy. But in addition to these we will certain- it
ly get the ltates of' Illinois, New Jersey, California 1, l
and Michigan --iin all probability, New York, New I
I1amttpshire, Wisconsin, ululne, and we should not "
be surprised if Ohio should wheel ilto line by the 4th a
of November next. I
Thus stands the state of the contest at this time.
Fillmore will not get tn electoral vote In the Union
and the whole contest rests between Buchanan and
Fremont. May we not hope that Southern men will
lay aside their prejudices, think calmly and no lon
ger blind their eyes to these tmportant truths anld I
thereby give their aid to Fremott, by obstlnatoly
persisting int their suplort of Fillmore.
KAAes. -Late accounts from Kansas in
form us that Gen. Whitfield, the po-.slavery
candidate, has been re-elected to Congress by
a large majority.. Kansas is now beyond ques
tion a slave territory and will cotsi in asi a
slave State, and this in spite of the opposition
of Black Republicaulsm and Know hothing
ism, both Nort and Seoutl, this shows what
the Democracy are doing to strengthen the
South.aid her instltntlons.

Col. Pond's Charge. ap
In his letter to the Baton Rouge Gazette ITI
dated theo6th inst., Col. Pond makes, the fol- mi
lowing unjustifiable and outrageous charge Sc
against the democracy. Let every democrat isi
and southern man who supports Mr. Buchanan tht
read and remember it through all future time lei
of his life. sa
"In conclusion, I regard any Southern man, ie;
or any Southern organ, who connives at, or is,
contributes directly or indirectly to the numd- L
tenance of the Kansas act as interpreted by
the Northern Demnocracy and as endorsed by
Mr. Buchanan, as an enemy to his own inter-i
eats, and as a traitor to the rights and honor
~ of the South." in
This is delectable language indeed to be iil
used by one who belongs to a secret order that u
is occupying the same grounds of opposition
Is to the national demcrvacy that is occupied und
'contended for by the Black Republic is, andl
who are fusing and co-operating with that. 1
odious party to achieve a common triumnp t,
or over "the rights and honor of the South."
,- Butwe will forbearfurthercomment. We are
not disposed to irritate the insane or disturb
the dead, as we consider that Col. Pond hats m..
Smore completely committed self destrtction
re than any man we have ever known of, not even,
eas xcepting the Rev. Col. Stewart.
The Advocate, however, is not disposed so
'to regard Col. Pond's visionary eccentricities,
he It makes the following comments upon his in
sano declaration about traitors &c.
o "There is not a Democrat, we venture to
as nassert, South of Masons and Dixon's line who I
or does not fully endorse the interpretation given I
i. the Kansas oct by the Cincinnati Convention;
of that interpretation is concurred in by IMr
is Buchanan; he accepts and adopts it as the
true meaning of the act; so interpreting it, he
has received the cordial approval of the entire
to Southern Democracy, in whose name andt in
-n- whose behalf we hurl back the calumnious as
persion of this ranting haranguer, this intian"
tes' ulte politician, who dares accuse us of ,bing
traitors to the rights alnd honor of our South
ion er homes.
nes We deeply regret being forced to this retul
his iatory language, but our nature will not meek
ly submit to the unwarranted insinuations com
tained in this letter; insinuations against the
masses of the South, ungenerous as they are
sunjust and false."
th This charge of the Col. against the Dc
ex. mocrncy, as traitors, will stick by him to the
.est; day of his death. Year after year, it will rise
to as a Ghost before his appalled and frightened
' to. ia .
Design and efibot of Know Nothingism. a
"The Northern Know Nothings have caught g
from their Abolition allies the aggressive spirit e
of fanaticism, and hope to infect their South- c
erni brethren with it and conquer by it. 'rTheo t
same fanatical, naggressive spirit, sent from
Massachusetts to Kansas, to drive pro-slanvry I
settlers out of that Territory with Sharpe's ri- c
fies, has fou:il its way into several localities in c
the South, seized upon some of the more intol
erant and bigotted portion of the Know-Noth
ings-inciting them to commit treason on Re- c
publican institutions, by driving Democratic I
voters, as much entitled to vote as tlhemselves,
from tlh polls. Already has that aggressive i
spirit defiled with innocent blood the saired I
palladium of liberty-the ballot-box--in Lou
isville, New Orleans and Baltimore, greatlly to
the shame and mortification of all good nmel of I
(-very party in the South, whether Democratic t
Whig or Know Nothing, but rejoiced over by
the Black Republicans and their British allies,
- not because Know Nothing victories halv
been won in those unfortunate cities, but be
j cause the means used to win them, the violence
t and the bloodshed, are well calculated to bring
b shame and disgrace upon the whole Southern
people and their institutions.
. The Black Republican, and British pensioned
n press, not satisfied with-inflaming the Northern
a minid with !1i manner of incentives, open and
ii disguised, to commit aggressions against South
. ern institutions, would gladly bring those in
a stitutions Into disrepute by Inciting Southern
y voters tb commit aggressions upon one anoth
er at the polls, for differences in religious be
lief, and then, with trumpet blast, proclaim all
such acts of lawless violence, committed on
Y Southern soil, on indubitable proofs to the
mY whole civilized world, of the rottenness and ill,
'" stability of Southern institutions, and theith
a compatibility of republicnnism and negro stl.
Hn eery.-Correspoldent of La Courier...
at There is but little doubt entertained: by any
be one now, that the spirit which has actuated
,and inclied the mob to violence, crime and
bloodshed, which has been enacted at New stn
Orleans elections, since the advent of Know Cc
Nothingism, is purely of an abolition charater. Tc
We have but little doubt ourselves of this fact Th
-nd we have heard flany of our most intelli- wi
gent citizens. exprecs the same opinion. This t
some abolition spirit has manifestedi.itself also br
inLoiuiviiifle in Balthiore, in Richmond, and A
it was that which created and actuated the on
"Vigiansce Committee" of St. Francisco. in
As the writer justly says, it is the same re
that has created all the difficulties in Kansas, a
'and charged on the southern emigrants by ty
sonthern men. The same that has created an 5t
anti-southern faction in the south. The samue p
'that has caused southern men to rejoice over re
northeirn abolition victories. The same that tl
approves and sanctions the union of Fillmorc's a
and Fremont's friends in a' common cause. n
The same that is giving aid and encourage- p
ment to Frdemont's election throughout the l
South.. Will the peolde of the State of Lou. t
islanu snter their rights to be overthrown, andd a
m their. voice to be crushed out by the mob vio
lence of these Know Nothing, Abolition emis
saries, conspirators and assassins In New Or
leans? Let them look to it. Know Nothing
r ism is the mased ballery of Abolitionism.
Lct"licdivole South look to it.
y Emblem of Consolidation.
The Know Nothing flag which we see flying
in the public square every day, is the oli blue
light federal emblem of a consolidated govern
mt Ient of central sovereign power.
The stars upon it which should represent the
-l sorereiga States are so arranged as to forum
I one great star, thereby "indicating a suubordi
it nalion of the States to the central governmnlt,
ii when the reverse is the truie chal nter of their
relation to the federal goverlinelnt. This
re Know Nothiing flag repudiates state sovereign.
lI ty and state rights; merges theia in one and
'constitutes themn as tributary to a central coll
)n solidated power.
The Closing Struggle. tl
In one month from this day, says the Union ch
of the 4th inst., the people of the Uniited States "i I
will be called upon to take part in by fair the ci
most important election which has ever been ii
held in the republic. By their unhoughit suf- phl
freges they will have to decide between free, - ''.
domi niid fit.aticism, patriots and traitors; Ps r
wlhether they lesire to preserve an perpetuate p
the republic as It is, with its glorious confiice- th
rancy of free, equal, and sovereign States, and tin
its model constitution, the matchless working lit
of lwhich have secured to us entire civil and E
religious freedom, and a larger sly:re of nation- N
til happiness, prosperity, and greatniess thuglas t
was ever before vouchsafed to aniy people.
The issue before the people is not as to choice
of men-wlhether MIr. Buchanani or Mr. Fre- ail
moit is to be elected President of the United t
States; but whether the only true, national, ft
conservative party-wlhose history is a history N
Sof faithful, fearless, and unremittinr g struggles v
e inll detince of the Union, the constittution, the tl
e equal rights of the States and the sovereign S
i power of the people--is to be defeated, and (1
the country left to the tender mercies of faniat- tl
ics, demagogues, and traitor.. Thie time for ti
argument aid and appeal has passed by, and it is c
t gratifying to know that it matters not how the s
t election tlay result, the action of the people
' t cannot be ignorant or unndvised action.. In
e the present canvass the measures and princi
y pies of the democratic party have been discuss- -
i- ed to an extent heretofore unknown in this ii
Secountry.-not before thin audiences in obscure I
- places, but throughout the length and breadithl
" of the land, and before assemblages of the i
ic people that were numbered by tens of thou- t
s, sallds. The democratic press has discharged t
e its whole duity. Documents and papers by A
d ,huindreds of thousands have been scattered l
-o broadcast over the land, until the truths has
of liaully found its way alike into the dwellings t
ic of the rich and the poor-the abode of wealth
'Y and case, the works op, the farm house, andil
s' the log-cabin.
,. In rcnurring to the past of the exciting cnum
e pain now rapidlly driawilng to a close, one fact
ig inny he mtntionoed to' show the deep and all
rn llsorbingu interest which is felt in every sectioti
ed of the Union in regard to the fearfully imn
rn portnut struggle in which the democratic par.
id ty is now engaged. Every true patriot id
tlh- every eminent statesman, it matters not what
in- their political nillirities may have been hereto
t- fore, is niew foutnd fighting on the side of the
,e. demoerut.y in' behalf of the country. The
all most prominent, distlnguisheod, and trusted of
oin the old political organiizations, whig aul dcet
the ocratle, many of whom, from age, physical in
- firmiities,, or iuclinatitn, have long retired from
da. public life,, are now enrolled under the Butch
slan flag, asuc are doing active and ellicient
mny service to rescuet the Unionl from the dangers
tyd from thep foe within. Side by side with the
and .vet,eran Cass, the ildomitablc J)ouuglas, the
statesmatn lhutter, the cool and sagacious pro
Cobb, the eloquent Allen, and the nnfaltvtring Ste
Toucey, we flnd Toomubs, and Stephens, -suid Dn
Benjamin, and Tones, and Choate, and others Is ,
who, in the zenith of Clay's and We Iater's lain
trength and popularity, were regarded us the ricl
brightest jewels of the old-line whig party. oun
And the Van Burens-sire and so',--their vol
nitiaes must not he forgotten, althor,glh there ice
may be spots and blemishes in their' political Ut
record. True to patriotic instincts., and with crg
a heart yearning for the success of the old par- ph
ty which halus for more than half -a century re- ly
Ssistedd, and successflly resisted, the schelltes, sti
plots, and machinations of the -enemies of the tuI
republic, they are now giving their names, fotl
their Influence, and their best exertions to
avert the comlnon danger. If all that is ecti
ncelt in statestnalnship, pure and ardenat in
patriotismn, and self-sacriflcirug in spirit, can tit
e heat back the now gatheriing tide of fanaticisan, Iar

The IssuI in a Nut-Shell.
The Columlbus G a. Times and Sentinel says:
-There are certain great principles involve,'
in the Presidential contest. The Black lRe
publican party have made up un issue with the
South particularly, and with conservative meni
in every section of the Union,. They declare
that slavery in the Territories is uinconstitu
tional, and that it is the right anud duty of Con.
gress to prohi',it its existence in all the Terri
tories, particularly in Kansas and Nebraka.
The Fillmore party joins issue by declaring
that slavery is constitutional ia all the Territo
ries except, NebrasIa and Kansas; that in those
'erritorics slavery was abolished by Act of
Congress, on the 6th March, 1820; and that
that act ouglht to have been hehl sacred and
inviolable; and that its repeal in 1854 was
"'reckless and unwise," and wantonlly dlone "to
aid in personal advancement rather than in
any pIhlic good."
The I)Demiocratic party joins issue with the
Black Republicans by declaring that slavery
is Constitutional in all the Territories, Nebras
ka and Kansas included. Tile Democratic
party also takes issue with the Fillmore party
by declar'ing that the Act of Congress of 6th
March, 1820, abolishing slavery in Nebraska
and Kansas, beingi inconsistent with the prin
ciple of mnom-intcrvenlionhy Congress with sla
very in the States and Te'rritories, is iuopera
tive aud void.
These are the issues of tih canvass, fairly
and fully stated. It is for the people to decide
which party is right in the .November election.
ei citizen beliteven tlhat slavery ought to be
prohibited in all the Territories of the United
States, lie ought to vote for Fremont and
Payton. If a citizen helieveN, though, slavery
is constitutional in the Territories, that the
law of 1820 aholishing slavery in the Territo.
ries, now enmbraced in Nebraska and Kansas,
ought not to have been repealed, lie ought to
vote for Fillhnore and Donelson. Iut if a cit
izen helieves that all the Territorlea of the
United States are open to settlement from cv.
cry seetiou of the country, and that the peo

colinIIm of your excellent journal, so Iroperly
amed, ani d so popular in all our creole par
ishes, that the Hoel. llulcnn F. Kenner, one
of the most influential and distinguiished of our
fellow-citizens of Lonisinui, had withdrawn
from the Know Nothing Order.
The lnti-l)lemo'ratic journals, suChi as the
lBee and the vigilant (Know Nothing), and
otheri, have denied this, and aulnouuced that
our Senator was still of their party. If such
had been th truth, he assured, gecutlemun, that
the 1ion. D. F. Kei,,ner would himself have dis
avowed your article by writing to you. His
friends would not have authorized you to' pub
lish, almost officially, this important fact except
after having obtained a formal declaration
from our Senuator.
I am able to state that the lion. D. F. Ken
ner Ihas caused his I1name1 to be eraused from the
Louisianua Fillmore Electoral ticket, and tlhat
he has authorized Mr. Johun Tlhibaut, of Aseen
sion, to declare publicly that he will vote in
November next, for the candidates of the Na
tional Democracy, Bluchanan and Breckinridge.
Your devoted frlend,
P. T. LANDRY.
