The Ohio "Irrepressible Conflict."
: It la a part of the political histo
ry of ; Ohio, which ' should bo re
membered nt. this tlmd, that Jndge
Swan, oneof.tho "mcmbc'ra!of'the
Supreme Court of Ohio, for decid
ing the' Fugitive Slave Law" consti
tutional, Was beaten in a Republi
can State Convention; last ycar.for
uoauaaUou - iarTc-clcutiun.l nan
Judge BrinkcrhoffJ another "mem
ber of tho Supremo Court, gave an
adverse opinion, 'deciding that said
Fugitive. Slave Law -was unconsti
tutional, t And after thus dbclding,
the Republican State Convention
has put him in nomination for re
election, as a reward for his servi
ces in tho cause of the ultra Aboli
tion party. These two acts of the
Republican Conventions have plain
ly and irrevocably committed the
wholo . Republican party of Ohio
against the Fugitive Slavo Law.
They have thus decided that that
law is unconstitutional, should not
bo enforced iu the State of Ohio.
This is the avowed position of the
Republican party it is committed
to tho disloyal policy of resisting
one of tho laws of the land, and in
thus resisting that law, are willing
to bring upon tho State a conflict
between the National and State au
thorities.' Supposing then that a
fugitive slavo should bo found in
Ohio, escaping from Kentucky or,
Virginia, on his way to Canada;
theU. S. Marshal takes possession
of6aid fugitive, 'and puts , him in
jail to await trial before the. proper
tribunal. Then comes the Stato
authorities, demanding his release,
under tho decision of the Abolition
Court of Ohio he is taken from the
hands of tho Federal officers and
placed in the hands of a Sheriff, and
a State Court releases him. The
V, S. Marshal is on hands to re-arrest
him tho moment he is releas
ed, and does so. -What follows?
Why, tho Governor of Ohio will in
sist upon his relcase-i-the Marshal
will be authorized- to retain him,
and to do so will call to his assist
ance a police force sufficient to cna
blo him to do it. The Governor of
Ohio will ne?t call out tho militia
of the State to enforce the decision
Of the Stato Court To meet this;
force, the President of tho United
States will send a detachment of
the U. S. troops to enforce the law
of the Federal Government. Then
comes the "irrepressible ' conflict.'1
Which party will give up ? which
will surrender ? Jllave we any as
surrauce that an" Abolition Gov
ernor' will yield his point, and
ceaso his opposition to the Federal
authorities before a contest at arms
is had? Not a bit' ofMtV lie will
measure arms with the " Federal
Government, and . a war between
Federal and State authorities 'will
surely take place,' Which ever has
the superior force, will conquer
blood will be . shed upon the field
of contest; and the State and the
Union itself, will thus be shaken
from the centre' to circumference.
The President is in duty bound to
see that all laws of ihe Federal
Government arc , enforced the
Governor , of Ohio will- insist on
carrying out tho dictum of the Su
preme Court of the State. ! A re
sort to bloody weapons and physi
cal strength yill . cnsiie, and the
strong powor will, for the time be

scenes will surely come to pass, so
soon as the Republicans secure a
majority of such men as Brinker-
hof nd Sutl'iff upon the ' Supreme
bench of - the State, -They , have
now two Judges ' upon' the bench,
who Jiaye already decided the Fu
gitiyo Slavo law unconstitutional.

In; voting for Brinkerhoff, they
vote to hasten a war, a contest,
conflict between the Federal and
State authorities they vote for the
"irrepressible conflict" to take place
within the bounds of the hereto
fore peaceful State of Ohio. But
by voting against that arch Aboli
tionist, they vote to maintain the
laws of tho Federal Government,
and for preserving tho fair escutch
eon of the State, and for the prop
er and peaceful enforcement of the
laws, and for preserving our people
from blood shed and internal war.
Let our Union men, all who are in
favor of preserving the integrity of
the Constitution, vote against
Briukcrhoff, and for his opponent

who will decide all questions that
may arise according to tho Consti

What have the Republicans Done.
In Massachusetts' they have en
franchised negroes aiid disfranchis
ed all foreign born white men. .
In New York they have given
negroes tho right of suffrage.
In Ohio, in 1856, Mr. Monroe a
Republican member of the Legis
lature, introduced, a resolution to
strike the word "white" from the
Constitution of the State. ' . c

of Ohio says that mulatto sufl'rage
is constitutional, and the Republi

What Republicans Mean by "Liberty
and the Union."
Should the Republicans succeed
at. the November election, it will
bo the first instance in our political
history of the election of a sectional
candidate to the Presidency. Hith
erto, all our. Presidents have , been
national men, voted : for . by 'both
Northern; and Southern . States.
But now it is boastod that the
election of a sectional candidate by
a sectional party is a toresono con
clusion. , Though the facts brought
forward in support of this assertion
are every day becoming fewer and
weaker, it is insisted on with an
Impudent pertinacity, and will be
till the ideas of November shall put
upon it the seal oi popular condem
nation :"i',t' .i'-'-u.
It is an insult' to tho American
ncoDle to suoDose ' that a' maloritv
of tnem can be eo , demeuted as to
place in power an Administration
that will array ' one Bcction of the
Union in 'direct antagonism to the
othor. i Tct.this is tho ground, and

pie at the South, whether slave
holders or non-slaveholders, and a
political firebrand, which, while it
inflames prejudice at' tho North,
cannot but incite to a reactionary
sectional movement in the South
ern States. .; , ... ; ;
At the same time that Republi
cans are stirring up this sectional
warfare, they have the impudence
to come beforo the people and
claim . that they are tko friends of
"Liborty and the Union." This,
taken in the connection in which it
is used, means that the Republicans
are lor trie union, it their party
can obtain the control of the Fed
eral Government, and bring tho
slave power, as they designate tho
bouthern people, in humble suppli-
ance at their feet. As it is a cardi
nal TJi'ine'mlo with them and their
candidate that the Union of States
half slave and half free, cannot
Eossibly subsist, they are for the
Fnion of States all free, by forcing
the Blave States to abolish slavery,
or secede ; and this is the true sig
nificance of the Republican motto
"Liberty and the Union."
Republican leaders stoutly deny
that they are DisuniOnists. So do
the Secessionists at the South.
Both are for tho Union if they can
obtain absolute , control over the
Federal Government, and make it
wholly subservient to their section
al iutercsts aud purposes, but not
otherwise. The Republicans and
old Abolitionists, from' whom they
are lineally descended, wre respon
sible for- the Disunion sentiments
which are rife both in (the North
and the . South, but are more uni
versally prevalent in tho . former
section. . By keeping up the war
upon the South and Southern in
stitutions, they have produced a
i ot things which old Aboli
tionism longed to produce, but had
not the power. . All that is needed
to consummate the work of Dis
union, is tho election of the Repub
lican candidate to the Presidency.
; should such an event take place,
of which there does not seem to
be the least possiblo danger, the
bonth will resist the hrst measure
of the new Administration tending
to abridge their - constitutional
rights, and, if they deem it necess
ary for self protection, attempt a
secession from the Union. We do
not say that they will be doing
right in ; taking this last step ; 'but
we do say that they would do pre
cise what the Republicans, if they
had a sufficient majority in the
Northern States, would do under
similar ' circumstances. Suppose
the slave power, as the Republicans
reproachfully style tho Southern
States, could obtain the permanent
control of the General Government,
and wore to establish slavery in all
the Territories ; and, acting upon
the Republican dogma, that the
Union cannot exist with States half
slave and half free, were to legalize
slavery in all the States; thus mak
ing tnem: all slaveholding; and
suppose, further, that there was no
hope : or prospect of a- change ot
policy on the part of the Govern
ment at Washington, : what would
our Republican and Abolition lead
ers advice the people of the North
to do in such a caso ? We know
to a certainty what they would do.
They would proach Secession and
Disunion with as much fervor and
earnestness as. Yancey, Rhctt & Co.
are' preaching it in tho South.
Their ends and purposes' are the
same, and their political ascenden
cy will have exactly the same re
sult.' To the National , Democracy
and the Union men is committed
the patriotic task 6f rescuing the
Union as it now stands from the
ruthless hands that wonld destroy
it f and they wilL they are confi

nofcClark Irvirig, Esq a lawyer
at Mt.; vernoh, U, has left the Ke
publican party, and come ' out for
Apologies of the Republicans.
Republicans find it necessary to
appologize for' thd existence of
their party, , They aro driven to
this by the , increasing pressure of
the national sentiment against their
sectionalism. They seo that the
existahce of such an organization is
hostile to the genius of true Repub
licanism, which, as the word itself
of the Republic or Union as it came
from tho hands of the fathers.
The "irrepressible conflict" doc
trine, which is tho life and soul of
modern political and sectional Re
publicanism, is seen to be in direct
antagonism to tho Union and to
tend directly to revolution and dis
union. One of the apologies that Repub
licans make for their party is that
it is a necessity of the age. Accor
ding to its Republican nurses, it
could not help being born, and fos
tered into life and activity. But
those who gave birth to, and cher
ished the bantling, were, we pre
sume, voluntary actors in tho mat
ter. This plea of necessity will not
do. It is an old and stale apology
for every species of fanaticism and
crime. The assassin claims that he
was hurried to the commission of
the dead by an irrepressible fate ;
and the wildest band of fanatical
ultraists who nlot acrainst the Dcace
and good order of the community,
claim that their movement is a
grand, though sad necessity of the
age. Kopublicans, in setting up
this plea of necessity, confess the
inherent weakness of their . cause,
and place their claim to popular
support upon an unsatisfactory and
Another apology that .Republi
cans make is, that theirs is the on
ly party of freedom in- this conn
try. The same claim was set up by
their immediate progenitors, the
old Abolitionists, who surnamed
themselves "The Liberty Party."
Republicans are doubtless the right
ful heirs to the principles and name
of the old Liberty party. The on
ly difference is that they daro not
be so bold and explicit in tho avow
al ot their doctrines as their ances
tors were.' But what right have
they, as they now present them
selves in the field of American pol
itics, to be considered par excellence
tho party of freedom? They say
they do not propose to interfere
with slavery in the States. Conse
quently, they do not intend to en
ter upon a crusado for tho emanci
pation of the enslaved in the South.
What then ? They intend, if they
can get the power, to put a Btop to
further extension of slavery. But
how is this to be done? By inter
vention acts of Congress prohibit
ing slavery in the Territories.
That is, in plain English, they
would take from tho white men in
an organized Territory tho liberty
of determining their own domestic
institutions tor themselves, and
bind them hand and foot by an ar
bitrary act of Congress. This
would be limiting slavery with a
vengeance qy making slaves ot tho
whitesin the Territories. It would
bo a mode of extending free institu
tions worthy this bogus Republi
can party of freedom, by - forcing
communities into arbitrary subjec
tion to a legislative body in which
they have no representative vote;
This apology for their Bectional ac
tion, on the part of Republican
leaders, that they are laboring in
the holy cause of freedom, is mere
pretense and hypocrisy. vino

The Republican Candidate for Vice

by Colonel Smart, the Democratic
candidate for Governor of Maine,
that Ilanibal namlin,.the Republi

took in procuring the passage of
the resolve extending the time for

connection on that occasion, with
many old political friends ; he was
breaking up the relations of a long
political life; ho was sacrificing as
flattering prospects for tho highest

believe he did what he conceived tor
be his duty; and, in defiance of all
