Dta. GaiStvoLn aud Ou6, in their attempt
to reoonoile an irreconcilable blundei
made by tbe Demooratlo parly in regard
to their Popular Sovereignty bobby
1856, ' If the party bad atood by their
compromise, , known as the Cincinnati

land in 1856, they would not be
under the neoessity to day of coming be
fore the people to explain the causes of
diiaensione amongst themselves, and of
devieinr,-wny and means to reconcile
their diatraeied party. TVm Is not a
boy in Lancaster of the age often yars,
who reada the news, who do a not know
that that party, so far from allowing the
sovereign , people of Kansas to "uttlt

ther do Republicans discover any poasi-

of fire eateie of the Somh, rolling back
and was sure that tbe right road to Waah
in a too was through Baltimore, and that
bo was in that right, way. The Doctor
was very exultant in his boast, that a for
himpt'll and hia house, he wouhl vote for
Douglas. ' Did the Doolor speak from au
ihnrity, in regard to hia "house?" We
promise him, that he wU find the road "o

We were likewire a little in obscurity,
as to which side the Doctor intended to
turn in on, ben he said ths road lav
through Baltimore, either through the
Union party with Bell, or the Democratic
party with Douglas, until he gave the pos
itive essursn' e, that him and hia house
would vote for Douglas; and so ws sup
pose this question to be settled.

AtBAUT, N. Y. May 18. One bon-
dred guna are now being fired by the Re
publicans of this city, in honor of the
nomination ol Lmoolu for President. The
groaieet excitement prevails. The streets
sre alive with politicians, and groups are
gathered on btate atrest and iSroaday
discussing the subject of the nomination.
Tbe announcement ol the nomination of
Lincoln was entirely unexpected by the
Republioana of thie city. They were
confident that Seward would be the man,
and when it was announced that Lincoln
waa the nominee, a feeling of disappoint
ment was manifosled. At firat ths intel
ligence was not credited, but these doubts
were of short duration. This feeling still
exists, but they say they will abide by
the decision ol the Uonvontion, and give
a hearty andooruial support to Lincoln.

Let every one read it closely, andtben

Republicans right upon all the lundamcn-
Ul Doinis of national politics, in which
hey have bce o grossly mlarVpreseut-
od by the Democracy. : . -
Upon tins plat'crm, and in the "Bosom
of Abraham," there ia an ample asylum
for every one who ia afar off, and who da-
sires to rescue the government from its
present corruption. -
1st. That the history ot the nation du
ring the lust four years, has fully estab
lished the propriety and necessity of the
organization and perpetuation of the Re
publican party, shd that tne causes
which called it into existence are perma
nent in their nature, and now, more than
ever, demand ite peaceful aud Constitution-
Si. That the maintenance of the prin
ciples promulgated io the Declaration of
In-'iependenoe, and embodied in the red
eral Constitution, is essential to the prcs
ervation of our Rtublican institutions.
and that the Federal Constitution, the
rights of the ftates and the union of the
States, must and thai! be preserved.
3d. That to the Union of the Slates this
nation owes its unprecedented increase In
popuutian; its surprising developments of
material resources: its rapid augmentation
of wealth; its happiness' nt boms and its
honor abroad; and we hold in abhorrence
all Boheaics for disunion, come from what
ever source they may; and we congratu
late tbe country thnt no Republican mem
bar of Congress has Uttered Or count nan.
eed the threats of disua'on so often made
by tho Demooralio members of Congress
without rebuke, and With applause troui
their political associates; and wedenounoe
those whose threats of disunion, in ctKe of
a popuUr overthrow of their necendanov,
as donying the Vital principles of a- free
government, andaa an avowal of contem
plated treason, which it is the imperative
duty of an indigaant people sternly to
rebuke and forever eilenoe.
4th. That the mdntentuioe inviolate, of
ihe riuhts of the States;, snd cs
peoially of esch Stk'.e, to oider and con
iro 1 its own domestic institutions accord
ing to its own judgment exclusively, in
sscntial io that balance of power on wnmn
tbe pei tt ciion and endurance ot our polit
ical fabric d-pends: and wo denounce the
unlawful invasion by armed force of the
soil of any State or Territory, no matter
under what pretext, as.ono of tbe gravest
5th. That the present Democratic ad
ministration bus far exoroded our worst
apprehensions in its measureless Rubser-
Vieury to meaiaoiione oi a eecuonai in
terest.as eapeeixlly evidonoed in its dea
perate exertions to. force. the iufamous La-
oompiou uonstiiuuon upon tne protesting
people of Kansas; in construing the perso
na! relation between master and eervsnt
to involve an tlnqmlified property in per
sons; in its attempted enforcement every
where, on land ana sea, through Ihe in
terventionof Congress and of the Federal
Courts, of tho extreme pretentions of a
purely local interest; and in ita general
and unvaty ing abuse ot the power entrust
ed to it by a confiding people.
6 h That the people justly view with
alarm tho reckless extravaganoe whioh
pervades every department of the Federal
Government. That a return to rigid econ
oray and aooonntability is indispensable
to arrest the systematic plunder ot the
nublio treasury by fivored partisans,
while the reoent startling developments of
frauds and corruptions at the Federal mo
Iropolia ahow that an entire change of ud
minietrittion is imperatively demanded.
7th. That the new dogma that ths Con
s'itution of its own foroe oxrrias slavery
into any or all the temtonea of the
U.S. is a dangerous political heresy, at
varianoo with the explicit provisi na of
that instrument Maeir, with colemporaoe
ous expositions, and with legislative an
judicial preoedmta' and that it ia revolu
nonary in us lenuenuj, nnu uunsm vi
. ... ... i i ...u : P
the peaoe and harmony ot the country.
8th. That the normal condition of all
the territory of the United Sialea is that
of freedom, that as our Republicau fath
ers, when they had abolished slavery in
all of our nationrl territory, ordained (hat
no person should be deprived of life, lib
erty, or property, without due process of
law, it beoomes our duty by legislation
whenever such legislation is neoessnry, to
maintain Una provision or the Uonaiuuuon
against all attempts to violate ii; and we
deny the au'horiiy of Congress or a Ttr.
ritorial Legislature or of any Individuals,
to give legal exint"noe to 'slavery in any
territory of the United States.
9th. That we brand tbe reoent re open
ing of tho African slate trade undor tho
oovor of our national flag, aided by poi
veraiona of judicial power as a Crime
against humanity, ai.d a burning shamo
to our country and age, and we call upon
Congress to tnks prompt and effioient
measures for the total and final euppiesa
ion of that exeorable traffic
10th. That in the recent vetoes by
their federal Governora, of the acta of the
legUlaturea of Kansas and Nebraska pro-
hihinn; slavery in tbosi t-rntories we
find a praotioal illustration of ths b asted
Democratic principles of non-intervention
and popuUr sovereignty, embodied in the
Kansas Nebraska Bill, and a demonstra
tion of the deoop'.ion and fraud involved
1 1th. That Kansas should of right be
immediately admitted as a State under
the constitution recently formed and a
dopted by her people, and accepted by the
House of Representatives.
12ih. That wnilo providing rovetue
for the general Government by duties up
on imports, sound polioy requires such
an adjustment of thus J imports as to on
courage the development of the industrial
interests of tbs whole country, and we
commend that policy of national exohan

or alienation to othera of the publio lands
held by actual settlers,, and against any
view of the tree nomcstesa pouey, wmuu
regards ths settlers as pauper e or suppli
nu for publio bounty, and ws demand
the passage, by Congress, of tbe complete
and satisfactory homeaiead measure, whioh
has already pasecd tbe House.. ,
1 1th. Tbat the National Republican
Pany is opposed W any change in our
naluralisauoe laws, tr-eoy Stale legisla
tion by whioh tbe righta of citixenship
heretofore aeoorded to emigrants, from for
eign lands Shall be abridged or impalVed,
and in favor of givicg a . full and efficient
protection to the righie ef ill classes of
ciiitens, Whether ' native or naturalised,
Wh at ho,ne and abroad.
15th. Thit appropnationa by ton
grass for liver and barbor improvements
of a national character, required for the
accommodation and security of an exist-
n r commeice. are authorised by the Uon-
itutton and maimed nytne oougauou oi
the Government to protect tne lives ana
oroDertv of -its citizens.
16th. That a railroad to the Pacifio
ocean is imperatively demanded by the
interests of the whole country; tbat tne
Federal Government otieht to render irti-
mediate snd effioient sid in its construc
tion, and that preliminary thereto a daily
overland mail should bo promptly estaD

Petty thefts ais still being committed
in this vioiniiy. Since our last Ihe dwel

work iu the field, and robbed of a watch
and a pocket book, containing 67,50.
The weather is fine for crops of all kinds
The heavy shower which visited us on
Friday the 18th, helped predigioutly to
brine out vegetation. And as we hear
very little complaint from the farmers io
reference io the wheat crop, it is a pretty
sure index that the prospect is good.
When the news (bTauehl by the Pong
Express to, Basil) of the nomination of
Lincoln of Illinois, for 1'resident, was
received, smiles of snlisfuotron seemed to

our government, and the President's re
sponse promised faithfal adherence to tbe

Japan. All ths Cabinet Gen. Scott, and
others, were introduced.

Mr. SEBASTIAN, from the Commit

A message waa reoeived from tbe l'res
ident, calling attention ot Congress to the
capture of the slaver Wildfire, with five
hundred and seven negroes aboard, by
Captain Cragin, of the steamer Mohawk
on the 26th ult. The negroes were car
ried to Key (Vest on the 30ih ult, and
delivered to the custody of the Southern
District of Florida.
Tbe question arises, what shall be done
with the negroes?
The President referred io the case of
the) slaver Echo. The flegroes were ssnt
back to Auica, by an agreement with
the Colonization-Sooiety. and' suggested
that Congress authorized the President
to make a general agreement with tbe
Colooia"tiou Society to cover all future
cases, io consequence of tun' increased
sotivity in the slave-trade, suoh Cases ara
liksly to become frequent. Something
must be done. 1 base negroes aro now at
Key West, and an expense has already
been incurred off 12,000; but more than

West, and the Marshal urge tbetr re
