How the War Might Have Been
The subjoined account, by Mr. Chase,
of tbe action of the convention which
nominated Pierce lor the presidency, is
from "Warden's Life ot Chase."
"Immediately after the election, the
northern Democracy, which had support
ed Gen. Cass, claiming that under the
doctrines maintained by him, slavery.
though not prohibited by aw, could find
no ingress into the territories, passed by
an easy transition into the profession of
the doctrines entertained by the Indepen
dent Democracy winch Had supported Mr.
Van Buren. Everywhere indications be
came visible of a disposition to unite up
on the platform of slavery prohibition.
Kesnlntions were adopted in many ofthe
Mates, both bv tbe old line and Indepen
dent Democrats, uniting the two organi
zations, and in others, wuere actual union
did not take place, there was more or less
concert of action. In Ohio, 1 was elected
to the Senate by the united votes of the
old line and Independent Democrats, and
took my seat in that body iu March, 1849.
1 was not, however, satisned that the un
ion between the two organizations could
be perfect or permanent until, in a na
tional convention, the old line Democra
cy of the free States should either succeed
in obtaining the adoption of a national
tlatform, declaring the party independent
of slaveholding dictation, or by breaking
the bond ot adhesion to the slave interest
by open separation.
"1, thcrelore, declined to go into the
Democratic caucus of the Scuate, or com
mit myself to the organization otherwise
than by supporting its candidates in Ohio
so long as the party in that State should
maintain an anti-slavery position. The
event justified mv apprehensions. It
Boon became evident that ihe leaders of
the Democratic party were not prepared
to surrender the supposed advantages of
their slaveholding alliance. In lsoU, the
compromise measures, including tbe fugi
tive slave act, were supported by almost
the entire party in Congress, though op
posed by a majority ot the Ohio Repre
sentatives. They were almost universally
denounced by the Democratic press in
Ohio, and for a time it seemed possible
that they might be repudiated by the
"When the convention met at Balti
more, however, it soon became apparent
that no such hope was to be realized.
Resolutions were adopted approving the
compromise measures, acd denouncing
all agitation of the slavery question, by
which was understood all resistance to
the pretensions of slaveholders. General
Pierce was nominated for President, and
Mr. King, of Alabama, for Vice-President.
The Wliii? Convention nominated Gen.
Scott for President, aud Mr. Graham, of
North Carolina, for Vice-President. Its
platform was almost identical in spirit
and substance with that of the Democrat
ic Convention. After these nominations
and declarations, I did not hesitate what
course to take. I addressed at once a
letter to Mr. Butler, of New York, declar
ing my own determination to adhere to
principles announced at Buffalo, and to
act with Ihe only party faithful to them ;
that is to say, with the Independent De
mocracy which had maintained its org an -iaztion,
and had called a convention to
meet at Pittsburgh. I earnestly urged him
and the Democrats who had acted with
hitn at Buffalo, to maintain the ground
they had there taken.
' I shall ever lament that this appeal
was not heeded. The party of freedom
had given, while unorganized, in 1840,
one vote in every 350 of all the votes cast
the United States, for its candidates.
1844 it had given one vote in forty-
four, and in 1848 it had given one vote in
ten, and almost one in nine. Tbis.it must
remembered, was the proportion in the
free States ofthe whole vote of the Uni
ted States. The proportion in the free
States considered by themselves, must, of
course, have been much larger. It c.in
not be doubted, I think, lhat had the
New York Democracy adhered to Ihe
principles avowed in 1848, and refused to
support the Baltimore nominations upon
platform repugnant to the sentiments
and convictions of a large majority ofthe
Northern people, a yote would have been
given for the nominees of the Independent
Democracy, which, if not sufficient to
elect its candidates, would have insured
election of General Scott, and, conse
quently, the union of nearly the whole
Democratic party, in the course ol the
following year, upon the principles of the
Independent Democracy. The Democ
racy of the Union, united upon these prin
ciples, would have been invincible, and
slavery, excluded from the national Ter
ritories, would have been ameliorated, di
minished, and, finally, abolished in the
States by State action. The Rebellion, in
probability, would have been avoided,
and the Union would have been preserved
for slavery, but for freedom. I took
great pains to explain these views to
many, and a good ileal of apprehenston
was manifested by certain slave State
Senators lest they should be adopted.
"The New York Democrats, however,
saw the matter otherwise than I. They
went over, almost unanimously, to the
support of Mr. Pierce, who was, of courso,
elected. Their defection, and that of
iimn influenced by their example, iu
oilier States, reduced the vote Of the In
dependent Democracy from 291,678 in
1848, to 157,296 in 1853. The whole num
ber given was 157,296, and the Indepen
dent Democratic vote was ouu in twenty.
Near three-fourths ofthe whole defection
in New lork.
"The agreem -nt of the two old parties
upon substantially the same piattorm.
the election of General Pierce, de
volved upon the Democratic party the
whole responsibility of that platform.
reorganization of parties became in
evitable, and, as the platform of the Inde
pendent Democracy alone represented
antagouism to the Compromise Democ
racy, ll wag also evident that the princi
ples of that party must form a basi of
opposition to the administration, which
must inevitably be driven into new con
cessions to the slave power,

A meeting was held at the town hou ?e
last Friday night, for .the purpose of
having the object of the Grange move
ment explained, and if sufficient encour
agement was given, to organize a Grange
ofthe Patrons of Husbandry. The night
was stormy, and but few had any notice
of the meeting, and as a natural sequence,
but few were present not enough to
make the thing a success; so, after ap
pointing a committee to look up tbe most
promising subjects and report at some
future time, the meeting adjourned. So
far as this town is concerned, I cannot
say what the result will be, but if I have
correct idea of the object ofthe mo ve-
ment, I look upon the project of orgs n- I
izlng a Grange here, very much as Herr-
ryClay did npnn the annexation of Tex'

jections, but on the contrary, would be
glad to see it, if it could be done without
dishonor, and without war, and with the

Fletcher William's Gun.
Max Alder relates this story :
"Recently it occurred to Mr. Fleteher
Williams, of St Paul, that it would b a
good thing to go out and see if he
couldn't catch a rabbit or two. He al
ways kept his gun loaded and ready in
the corner of the room, go he merely
shouldered it and went out. After awhile
he saw a rabbit, and, taking aim, ha
pulled the trigger. Tbe gun failed to go
off. He then pulled the other trigeer,
and the cap snapped again. Mr. Wil
liams used some extreme language, and,
(hen taking a pin, primed them with a
little powder, and started again. The
rabbit did not see Williams as be put on
more caps, and they snapped too. Then
Williams cleaned out hU nipples again,
primed them, and fired the gun off at a
fence. Then the caps snapped again.
Then Fletcher became furious, and in bis
rase he expended forty -seven caps in an
efiort to make that gnn go off. When
the rorty seventh cap missed also, blether
thought lb.it there might perhaps, be
something the matter with the inside of
tne gun, so he tried tbe barrels with uts
ramrod. To his bitter disgust, he dis
covered thal'both barrels were . empty.
Mrs. Williams, who is nervous about
firearms, bad drawn tbe load without
telliug Williams, tor fear of making bim
angry. 11 there bad been a welkin any
where about it would probably have
been made to ring with Mr. Williams'
excited denunciations of his misfortunes
as a hunter. Finally, however, he be
came cooler, and, loading both barrels, he
started again af ter rabbits. He aawona
in a few moments, and was about to are,
when he noticed that there were no
caps on his gun. He felt for one, and to
his dismay found that he had snppd
the last one off. Then he groan d his
leeth and walked home. On big way
there he saw at least six hundred rabbi to.
He has been out hunting; every day since.
however, with his gun in first rata order.
and he has never laid eyes on a solitary
rabbit. Williams is beginning to think
something is wrong in the government of
the universe, and on Tuesday last he vot-
ad the straisriit Democratic ticket.
Forty Bushels of Wheat per Acre.

A serious controversy one that will
be watched by all Christendom bt aris
en in England. The contestants aca H.
Gladstone and Arctbishop Maanisxj. Tho
ground of action is a pamphlet pnbiiarVad
by Gladstone on tbe danger to- Ciril Gov
ernments from- Roman Catholic doc
trines, and especially that of Papal Infal
libility. Gladstone holds that no on can
become a convert to Rome without re
nouncing bis moral and mental freedom,
and placing his civil loyalty and dty at
the mercy of another. And that th pol
icy of tbe Vatican is to renew the strag
gle for temporal power and . supremacy.
The Archbishop's answer ia caution, asd
rather Incomplete. He sayg that la Vat
ican decrees are not intended to altr civ
il obligations ; that the doctrine of IoXali
bility is a Divine trust; that civil obedi
ence rests on' natural law, and revealed
truth on the law of God ; that subjects are
bound in all things that " are lawful le
obey their rulers. The Archbiaho p re
cognizes two authorities and two kinds
of laws, but it Is not quite go clear as to
whom appeal is to be made, as to the ul
timate judge of what things are lawful.
Gladstone's pamphlet has produced an
immense effect ia England. Ou journal
terms it a "fire-brand," while others say
bas restored Gladstone tr the afefcttona'
