from mansion and hamlet, from
city and town, for the great stand
ard bearer of Democracy, Hon.
Stephen A. Douglas. There is a
general rally around us 1 Shall we
be idle? .'
Democrats ! there has never been
time since the formation of our
arty, when we have been so assail
ed as now. Ultraists from North
and South, the Abolitionists and
the Seceders, and all other fac
tions that desire, in their mad fa
naticism, to rule or ruin, have join
ed themselves together in an un
wholly alliance to destroy our party
and to crush out those principles
which have for over a half a ceutu
led our country along in the
greatest prosperity and placed her
in the highest position among na
tions of the earth principles which
have been handed down to us from
our fathers, who established our
glorious Union, and which, with
their dying breath they begged us
to sustain, as the only way our
country could still prosper and still
retain its greatness.
Democrats ! Look around you on
every hand see the attempts of
orrupt politicians and unprinci
pled men to swerve you from the
ine of duty, and thuB to give indi
rect aid in yielding up the glorious
Inheritance bequeathed you by
your forefathers. Look and be
hold who are the men that attempt
to teach you new theories to sup
plant those principles which have
heretofore never been questioned.
They are traitors in our camp
bought over with the money of the
opposition who are insiduously
trying to plot our ruin under the
professed names of Democrats.
Watch them and stand firmer to
Democrats! See the attempts
that heave been made to crush the
favorite son of Hlinoi the Hon.
Stephen A. Douglas by a jealous
and revengeful Executive, with his
office holders and the Southern
DisunioniBts assailing him on one
hand, and the Abolitionists and
Republican Disunionists of the
North, on the other. Upon the
Democracy, upon the people Stephen
Ai; Douglas has placed his trust
and appeals to them to sustain him.
Then rally and hurl into oblivion
the enemies of your country, and
show them that the masses are not
to be deceived, and that they will
give traitors their just due.
Democrats ! Do not forget what
is your duty, and do not fail to do
it fullyi ' Do not forget that now
the country needs your services,
and to remain inactive is equally
as disastrous in its effects as though
you were an open enemy of theDe
mocracy. You have influence ; ex

must cast it at the' coming election,
if you love" your country and wish
the inheritance that you have had
bequeathed to you to go down In
tact to your children. ' '
Democrats ! Rally each and eve
ry one of you ! On your banner'is
inscribed the motto that "the people
are competent to 'govern themselves?'

the agitation of the odious slavery

and Abolitionists wish to keep the
question agitated in Congress,

Remember that the struggle now is
to keep the power in the hands of

Remember that' the eyes . of the

rejoicing to see our party assailed,

Democrats 1 Rally together!
Stand in a solid phalanx, and de
termine to conquer, and we are safe.
If you do not, by inaction we fall,
and the lairest country liod ever
smiled upon will go down into the
darkness of disunion and civil war.
Old Line Whios! You too can
not remain idle in the coming con
test. Though you have once
fought against the Democratic bnn
ners, yet you always loved the
country too well to imperil it by fa
naticism and sectionalism. Remem
ber the rally of your glorious lead
ers, the noble Clay and the giant
Webster, when the country was im
periled. Remember how thy were
then upbraided and assailed by the
small faction of Abolitionists, who
have now grown into great power
and who now villify the memory
of vour great leaders. Remember
that Stephen A. Douglas was co
temporary with your chiefs, and
that the loved Clay, on the borders
of eternity, his mental faculties in
tensified to such a degree that he
saw through the veil which ob
scures the future, which his dying
breath laid down principles for the
good of the country, which Stephen
A. Douglas has ever sought to car
ry out. In this vital struggle we
appeal to you, Old Line Whigs, by
the memory of your great leaders,
to stand by us and save the nation.
And we appeal to you as one, who
for many years rallied in our
Conservative Men Everywhere!
We ask you to pause and reflect,
and we have implicit faith that
your judgment will prompt you to
battle with us against the fanatics
who will lead our country to ruin
Help us to save our glorious con
federacv, our national honor, and
to : keep the flag of our country

As to the admission of slave
States, Mr. Lincoln says :
In regard to the other question
of whether I am pledged to the ad
mission of any more slave states
into the Union, I Btate you to very
frankly that I would be exceeding
ly sorry ever to be put m a position
ot having to pass on tnat question
fSee Debates. Lincoln's edition
page 131.1 .
Washington, Madison, Monroe
and Jackson were placed in that
situation, and admitted them with
put . hesitation. Mr. Lincoln,
his Chicago speech in regard to
the equality and right to freedom
of all races, said : .
My friends, I have detained you
about as long as I desire to do, and
have onlv to say. let us discard all
quibbling about this man or the
other man, this race, tnat race ana
the other race being inferior, and
threfore must be placed in an infe
rior position, discarding our stand

discard all these things, and unite
as one people throughout the land,
until we shall once more stand

' And further said, in same speech
My friends, I could not, without
launching off upon some new topic,
which would detain you to long,
continue to night. I thank you
for this most extensive audience
you' have furnished me to night.
I leave you, hoping that the lamp
of liberty will burn in your bosoms

aylor owned slaves. Did they
believe in Mr Lincoln's doctrine in
regard to their social and political
equality ? Mr. Lincoln, in his
speech at Galesburg, said :
I believe that the entire records
of the world from the date of the
Declaration of Independence np to
within three years ago may be
searched in vain for a single affir
mation from one single man, that
the negro was not included in the
Declaration or Independence.
According to Mr. Lincoln, Thom
as Jefferson, George Washington,
and a large majority of singners of
the Declaration of Independence
must have been great hypocrites
and scoundrels, for they had slaves
at the time of the promulgation of
that instrument, and did not free
them. The eighth resolution of
the Chicago platform, upon which
he stands for the Presidency, 8ys :
That the normal condition of all
the Territory of the United States,
is that of freedom; that as our Re
publican fathers, when they had
abolished slavery in all our Nation
al Territory, ordained that "no
person should be deprived of life,
liberty, or property without due
process of law," it becomes our du
ty, by legislation, wherever such
egislation is necessary, to main
tain this provision of the Consti
tution against all attempts to vio
late it ; and we deny the authority
of Congress, of a Territorial Legis
lature, or ot any individuals, to
give legal existence to slavery in
any lerntory ot the United btates
Thomas Jefferson acquired Lou
isiana Territory, and agreed to pro
tect slave property in said Terri
tory. Mr. Lincoln, when a member of
Congress, according to his own
declaration, voted forty-two times
for the Wilmot Proviso. See Lin
coln and Douglas debates; Lin
coln's edition page 237. The first
time amy proposition involving the
principles of the Wilmot Proviso
was advanced in Congress was in
1820. The Fathers of the Govern
ment, with one or two exceptions,
had passed away. Thomas Jeffer
son was one of those exceptions,
and he repudiated it in the most

New Paris, Sept. 10,1060.
Editor JV. Within the past
week the Republicans have organ
ized a Club called "Wide Awakes"
I suppose named after the notorious
gangs of New York, Williamsburg
and Baltimore in 1854, this is the
second attempt at its organization,
the first was an utter failure, hav
ing died out after one meeting, but
this time with the aid of all the
boys they could persuade into it by
furnishing them with a suit, they
have succeeded in getting a
few to join in, and have been hold
ing meetings almost nightly during
On last Friday evening they had
quite a number of speeches, among
them, one by a Dr. Miller a Repub
lican leader, in which he used the
following language "here is that
Patriot John Brown I can't find it
in my heart to condemn that good
old man, I believe he was carrying
out the true Republican doctrine
that all men were created free and
equal and endowed with certain
inalienable rights, he then went
on to Eulogize him tor his course
How honest Republicans can sit
and sanction such treasonable doc

Meny of them we find renouncing
all such doctrines and are coming

entations that went up, upon the
death ot "tnat crave old man im

And in conclusion I have a word
to say in reply to the star corres
pondent of the Eaton weekly
"Smut Machine," who in two labor
ed articles, charged the democracy
with trying to make political capi
tal out of the Dr. Peck difficulty by
Now he was the first to parade
this charge before the public, and
I think by his labor he has conclu
sively proved to every sensible
mind that it was political persecu
tion, hence I think it would have
been far better for him to have left
that part out of his communica
tion. Furthermore it is well known
that on the morning of the difficul
ty, the question was not, is he guil
ty, but, that one vote leBS for Val-
landigham and Douglas, one vote
gone up, and other
John C. Fremont.
It will appear from the follow
ing in the ban r rancisco uerala
that Colonel Fremont is so ungrate
ful as not to care whether Lincoln
is "voted up or voted down :" .
Dispatches to yesterday's even
ing papers state that on the arrival
of Col. John C. Fremont at Los
Angelos fifteen guns were fired in
honor. A delegation from the Re
publican Club waited upon, but he
expressed his determination not
take an active part in the Presiden
tial canvass. ;
KThe editor of the Dubuque,
Iowa, Herald says :
"In Warren county, where, at
recent Lincoln demonstration, a ne
gro wench represented one of the
Sovereign States, and where,
show the perfect equality of the
races, she washed in the same ba
sin with a beautiful white girl, and
wiped upon the same towel, over
twenty staunch Republicans were
disgusted, and vowed they would
vote the Democratic ticket.

lican of that (Richland) county, has

Perhaps some of our friends will
hardly be willing to tolert3 a se
rious notice of thls seeming silly
and puerile association, but Amer
ican pariots cannot ieei too jeaiou
of the first insidious encroachments
of organized factions. We will aot
stop to enquire whether such an as
sociation, with its studious and la
borious efforts to., rianufacture - ex
citement and exhibit artificial en
thusiasm, should enjoy civil respect
of earSeBt, logical, thinking men
orSf it be a worthy instrument of
party, whose influence should be ex
ertea upon the sovereign will of.
thopeople, through the understand-,
ing enlightened and convinced.
But we would enquire of every lov
er of his country, if there be no
cause lor solicitude when in every
town in the North, almost simul
taneously, a society is organized in
one party, bearing one name, receiv
ing thesame rules and by-laws from
headquarters, wearing one and the
same uniform more suggestive of
the camp and field, and not less
distinguishing than the Jacobin
"bonnet ot revolting memories
an association which sometimes
with, but not unfrequently without
the emblem ol mcendiariBm is drill
ed, at dead of night, in military
"positions, steps, "evolutions,
"marches, and "counter-marches,
by men who have long "enjoyed
their ease ' either "with or with
out "dignity, under the titles of
General, Captain, Colonel, ic,
when this is done, not in one town
alone, but in almost every town in
the ss orth, and by companies that
already combine with the case of
the U. S. Militia?
Citizens of free and happy Amer
ica, in all honesty and sincerity of
heart, we ask: you; to what do
these things look ? We ask you,
seriously, do the developments :f
the last few months throw any
light on those dark threatB of ap
pealing to some other law than the
constitution, ot meeting political is
sue "peaceably it we cang
if we must" " And those vague in
timations of some "impending cri
sis," some "irrepressible conflict'
which come, ever and anon, hissing
from the lips of mad leaders of fac
tion and fanaticism, which honest
men have not appreciated and per
haps not sufficiently heeded? We
do not ask, are all those who have
innocently, perhaps, enthusiastical
ly joined this association forewarn
ed of any unpleasant tasks, perhaps
ultimately to be assumed by them
selves. From the nature of the
case, we consider this most improb
able. But we do ask, was such an
instrument, so well suited to the
use of a disappointed minority, im
patient of restraint, merely discov
ered by chance to be used at ran
dom? Influenced 1by the contin
gencies of certain courts, leading
Republicans have declared they
will "let the Union slide," and
should theBe leaders be brought in
to unpleasant antagonism with the
Federal authority, is it probable
they would make no use of the ar
my they had enlisted beforehand,
and, fired with a politico-religious
enthusiasm only akin to that of the
Crusades under Peter, the Her
mit? A secret political association is
juBtly feared under every form of
government. To be provincial or
geographical in organization, fur
nishes another element of distrust.
But when to this is added military
principles, practices orpredilections,
we can conceive ol no organization
more potent for evil, less capable
