Jn the land ol airfield, iu the reign
ef Jamxm, sur named Buchanan, net
many dajaago there oime to to an eleo

nam bar, who desired tbe honors nd tmol
Mmtntt of office; and (Less aeekeriofof
Cot had spent much tirns and money to ee
cura the loves and fishes, and had abased
one mother before the people as "villains,'
and "thieves," and ''druiiLards,' und
"gamblets," with ninny other liftrah epi
thets; and they had flattered ibe people
with soft words and muoh praise, and hud
given them "whiskey" for their votes, and
mads them drunk, and to believe they
"lovtd thtm" muoh and dearly. And these
office seekers had many friends whom they
Lad brought to aid them by falne prom
ises and lies, end money, and a little
flattery. And it mine to f .aaa as the day
approached, and the people oame up to
deposit their voles, that they were hailed
from afar by theae candidates, and those
whose hlp they had si-cured, and their
votes were solicited, but the people, many
ol thum, had their mindtr made up and
their afflictions fixed, (having been "treat
ed" well before ooming lo the place of
voting,) and the candidates had hut little
to do but to "treat" thtm better, after
they had done voting. And it cttmo lo
past that a orrtaln "Cliquo," railed the
"Red Lodge Clique," that had long ruled
the land, and whoas mantle rs had ufiened
deoeived tho poople and grown fat on their
"mtant," cams to try lo influence thorn
again; but the people had been muoh
wronged, and greatly thcaUd by that
clique and they hated it, so they nfuaed
tube oontroled by it and rose up In t!,cir
might and slow it and eluded a man nam
ed Millkr over ita candidate.
Ana ii came to past ini among in
fu-ty wns a innn named Rainey, who had
luug lived tiion the peopla and grown fat
upon their tarninga, and of whom it irna

wore deteimmad lo n rmke r.im and turn
him out of oflke hiiu and his sod, and
put another in his place, and it was wi'h
the utin.iat diffloulty they were pravun'eJ.
And it came lo pais thataoolhur of the
forty, named "Ui WtLiv, who was ol Irish
Ifsoent," a titan of great J.ngth and gust
under itandmg, of tina appoarame and
much hoanting, and he had been "icaied
among tha hills," and had leam.U to
"pitch hay," and could "reap well." hut
the poople said he had lately bceu a
"Whig," and had lwen an "Amtrioan,"
and had teen a "Repuldkan." and had
f hanged euddenly hit politics fi offio
and they were afraid to trust him ao they
did not elect him.
' And there wan another of the "foity''
named " P. Shaw," who was likewieo of
Itiali deicent, and ha was a ''pcttifoger by
tudu, a man of much wuida, of little
meaning, and be nora a mnt learJ of
strange color, und hia hair went imcombad
for many days, but the peopled deipiaed
Lini iu their heartland Ungli.d at him
and made light of his pretentious, auj Su
ha was bu.itn.
And there was another of the lorly
Mined JirrHria, who wasa"a keeper,''
of smooth 8pem.li and good parts, but ly,
eo the paopU thought he was a belter gato
keeper thaa lawyer, ao thev defeated himi
And it cams io piaa that for the office of
Auditor, there Was a great contest, and
man named Kauoia, of dutch deaoout,
professing the Catholic faith, sought the
place, but he made the sign up side down
and with Lis left Land, bo the people knew
him to be a pretender aud eloted a man of
Cue arm, named Rouiksok, in hia place,
And there was another of tbe forly,
samel Gu r, ef touch conceit and cud
, a!rg ways, and he stood Am tit for the pf-
fice 'oFShei iff, aod ha electioneered with
gr'atihreuxJness, and went among the peo
ple and "kisd their babies, and talked
muoh to their wives to get their influenof,"
and until tbe evening of the day hpfore
the election he waa of good cheer, and
there was "nothing to do but sweAr him

election ha awoke and 'saw by the streets'
that "whiskey tad flowed as free aa wa

And there wits still another of the foity,
named Jimhtnos, a yonnjf man of much
leisure, lately converted to the faith, and
there came forth to oppose him, an "old
man" wbohad "been to the wars," and who
had filled the office for many . years, and
the people knew that the young man was
lately a Kopublioanite and was still of the
color of his native tribe, so they rebuke!
liia presumption and elected the old man
by a great majority.
And it oama to past, that after (he elec

disappointed, (for they had labored hard
and spent muoh time and money,) so they

We have, in Fairfield county, a vry
few men, honest in seuiiment and deter
mined in purpose, who tavor the election
of Bell and Kveratt, We desire to pro
pound n few questions to this class of our
fellow citizens and hope they imvy be well
You who are now acting with that par
ty, have, most of you, perhaps all, been
"Whigs" and now cUim to be "Amerl
cans." You have d me service in both
those "organisations," bnt they are gone,
and in view of this and in view of tho
crisis that is now Upon tho land, we ask
you to shufle off your prejudices and sur
vey the battle ground of "November"
weigh well the issues and obey your con
Is it not true that the people are divid
ed upon the alavery question? Is it not
trus that this is the only issue before the
people? Is it not true that the Democrat
io party of the Souili -lespeclible in men,
numbers and power seek to extend and
perpetuate the institution of ilavery? Is
it not (me that this party claim that
"slavery is carried in'o the territories by
the Constitution of the United Slates, and
that the federal government is pledged to
its protection." Is it not true this same
parly claim that neither the Congrets of
the United Stales, the Terriiorial Lngiala-
ture, nor the people oi the Territories can
exclude slavery dining the territorial ex
istence? Is it not true, on the othor hand, that
the Republican party, numbering more
than one halt of the votere of the nation,
stands fur'h to meet these issues favoring
free territories und fre labor nothing
more and nothing less? claiming that the
Constitution is not a law for slavery
that the condition of tho leriitoriua is fioe
dom, no! slavery. CuudiJ minds will con
cod these to be the paramount issues of
the day. That none other divide the pub
lio mind; thut thoy must be settled; that
they are now in process ol settlement.
Wnt'ftB do vou stanij? Art you for thivt
ry or against itf Are you for fret hbor
or fur tlave labor! It wont do for you to
say you are for neither. The issue is
mad i) up sad you are called upon lo act
If, iu this struggle, you oppote the Re
publican organization by that much you
favor the extension of slavery. It won't
do for you to iay you ignoro these isauee
You can't ignore them; they are upon u;
must bo met and udjusted. It won't do
for you to plead your platform of glitter
ing generalities, of empty nothingness
"the Union, the Constitution, and enforco
mont of the Ihwb." TIcho w pro ul! in
fnvor of; wo are all for tho Union, all for
the Constitution, all for :ho enfoicemenl
of the laws. The question is erne ol'emi
tril lion of your platform. The iaaue is,
does your platform, (tho Constitution,)
curry slavery into the ttinitories nnd fix it
tht ro Wyond the ointrol of tho psoplc,
beyond the control of the lenitoriul legis
lature, beyond the control of Congress.
WiiKnx no vou stand? You Bay you eve
"old Whis." But is not the Whig parly
dead? nnd hut n'jt your parly expressly
ignored i's great prinoiple? If Mr. Bell
was io. old Wl j; was not Mr. Lincoln?
as able, as pslrioiio, an ddvolod, ns hon
eat at ho and 'mis not (he Republican
parly of to day taken from the grave of
the gallant Clay all the issues that lived
after him, and are they not bearing thorn
on to victory? Why, then, uot rut loaae
from your prejudices and rull v at once to
tlit ir eupporl?
You say you are "Americans." But in
the Kku h Evkfktt arty the American
parly I lo they elaud on the Balimiore
Platform of ''8? llavo thoy not ignored
its piiuoiplob? liavo they not endoml the
laws of the country as they are, and w ith
them the law permitting foniigners lo be
come uatuialued after a residence of five
years. Does the Republican party do
more? You tie mistaken in the belief
that you aie clinging to (be "American
prlnoiple." There ia no American party;
its disintegration is more compUte than
that of its predecessor, the Whig pm'.y.
But what do you hope to accomplish by
your support of "Bell?" You know hia
eleotion is impossible. You know that no
candidate save ''Lincoln" stands the re
motest ohanoe of an eleotion by the peo
ple; and you know, equa'ly well, that John
"Bell" can by no possible means control
more than two of the seventeen States nec
eiaaiy to a ohoioe if the election should
go to the 'iloupp' (nnleas you are in
sane enough lo believe thai Republicans
will vote for Mr. "Ball" notwithstand
ing your efforts to defeat them notwith
standing your fusion with every party and
every faction of a party in the doubtful
tales.) There will be no election by the
House, and if the people do not elect
(which we firmly believe they will do by
a majority triumphant and overwhelming)
the Senate will be railed upon to choose
the Vice President who will be the Pres
ident of the United States, and Joseph
Lane, of congressional intervention, slave
oode proolivi.ios, must inevitable be tbe
man. Do you dosire this? Do you de
sire tbe elevation of a man to the Presi,
dency who is pledged to the extension and
perpetmiion of human slavery, who pre
fers slave labor to free 1 ibor. If you do
not, vcte for "Lincoln." But finally
you make professions of great devotion to
the Union ycu desire to allay agitation,
And Hectional strife, and restore brotherly
feeling. Do ycu hope to do thit by throw
ing the election into the "House?" Do you
believe a nation that trembled and quaked
at the little storm raised by the election of
pcuker of the "House" could withstand
the earthquake shovk that must rage
while the same body were choosing a Pres
ident of the United States? Do you be
lieve suuh a struggle, by such men, ut a
lime when the nation blazes with excite
nient would allay "agitation and sectional
atrife," woi Jd "rtstore brotherly feeling'1
and strengthen the bonds of union? You
know that suoh would not be tho result.
You know that the danger of disruption
would be imiuent. You know that an elec
tion by the House is a thing most to be
dieaded. You kuow that it ie tho solemn
and impeialive duly of overy lover of Un

The Meteor of Auguat 2d, lWOO, as sceu at
A few minutes alter ten o'clock in the
evening, the bed room of the writer wae
strongly illuminated for one or two sec
onds by light whiuh entored the room
through a window eo the south side. , t?ov
eral of our citiiens who happenod lobe
abroad at that hour, saw a meteor, appa
rently as largo as the moon, darting acroxs
the southern region of (he sky from eabt
to west. It tine i god from the sky in the
south east, and passing in a line parallel
to tha horizon, vanished in the south
west. It was followed by a train of light,
and just before it vanUhed wns teen lo ex
plode. The elovation of the trade of the mote
or was about 18 degrees abovo the hori
zon. A correspondent ef the Cinoinnaii
Commercial, writing from 'Cynthiaoa,
Ky., stales that tho elevation of the nioto
or, as scn from that place, was 45 de
grees, and that ita oourso was from south
east to wosUoutli-wust. Now Cynthiana
is 110 miles iu a riircot line from Lancas
ter. Assuming the foregoing data to be
correct, it will be found by a trigonomet
rical calculation, that at (he mon-cnt when
the meteor was seen from Lancaster in the
direntiou of Cynthiana, it must have Leon
170 mile from Lancaster, and at a hight
of about (30 miles above tho eaith.
Aaeuming also that (ho apparent diam
eter of tho meteor as ucen at Lancaster p
was equal to the sppatont diameter of the
moon, 190dittinotera of the uiotoor would
be equal to the distance of the raetoor from
Lancaster. Tho diameter of the muteor
must therefore hiuo Leon equal to 170
miles divided by 120, which gives one
mile und live twelfths.
The elevation of the meteor, as seen nt
Lsuo.ts'or, was determined by an iustru
ment placed at tho spot where one of tho
obiier vei a of tha phenomenon had stood i
and directed towird a fixe I point iu lunge
with which the meteor had been seen to
pass. Iu regard lo tin) oliocrvation nt
Cynthiana, it is not elated whether the ob
server hud any menu.-) of accurately deter
mining the elevation, or whothor ho mere
ly guessed at it. My improBMon ia thut
the true elevation at Cynthiana must have
been considerably lees than 45 degrees,
for at Cincinnati, the molcor pns.ied a de
groe or two below the planet Mars, which
at that timu was only '2 2 or 23 degrees
above the horizon. It is tho re fore proba
ble that the foregoing estimates of tha
distauce and magnitude of the body aro
below the Iru'h. J. W.

t3T " The New York Zrilune says
We yesterday laid before our eaders a let
ter from tha Hon. John Bell o Mr. Thorn
as H. Watts of Montgomery, Ala., in re
ply to aa inquiiy as tj the views of the
distinguUhed candidate of tho Union
party ooncerning the great questions now
at iasuo before tbe counuj. In that let
ter, Mr. Bell refers hie corespondent to
collection of extracts frm. bis speeches
and letters, with references to his voles,
latoly published by the Central Uuion
Committee of Tenessee. ! Mr. Watts hav
ing carefully examined th collection.pub-
liahos in The Montgomery Post the fol
lowing summary of the ?icws 8e' urin
"Mr. Bell thus distino.ly announccs.iu
my judgement, (he following propositions:
""1. A distinct repudiation of.Wilmot
Provisoism. ' '
"2. A distinct repudiation of "squatter
sovereignty' as long ago as 1848.
"3. A distiuct anuoiiicemenl that the
Territories are the common property ol
the States composing tht Union; and ihat
the citizens of each Stab had the right to
go into such Territories with their prop
erty of every descriptor, and while there,
to hove protection to p-operty and per
sons. "4. That Slavery, at it exists among
us. is oivillv. morally, and religiously,
right: sanctioned by the Constitution of
the United States, bvjli Bible, aud by
the practioe of men in all ages, and that
it ought to be extermea.
'The record of Mr. Bell.running through
a period of more than a quarter of a cen
tury gives the strongest ossuiance of his
fidelity to die insiitutions of tho South,
the land of his birth; nnd of his love to
the Constitution and Union of our faiL
"These opinions of Mr. Boll, so long
enteitaincu ana actoa .on in punuo mo,
afford to us of the South a strougor guar
anty against wrong than tbe sudden an
nouncements of elcveoth hour couverlH,"
It is not necessary for us to say, that
most of the opinions hers attributed to Mr
Bell seem to us to be pernicious nor that
ia our judgement, their incorporation in
to the pernmnet policy of the country
would tend to nothing but the perpetua
tion of strife and discord. Nor have we
hitherto understood Mr. Bell as holding
Pro-Slavery views of so extreme a chsrac
lei; though we have now become aware
that such views ate .'set forth in various
passages in his published opinions
But the points to which wo now deaire
to call attention, are: 1. That Mr. Bell
above all holds a position of hostility to
the Squatter Sovereignty of Mr. Douglas;
2. That he is in favor of a Terriiorial tola
ve Code; and 3. That heuives no ooun
tcnance to the plan of some of his pretend
ed menus who propose to support him by
voting for his bitierast antagonists For
that sort of politics we venture to say no
word ol approbation will ever come trom
the lips of J011.1 Bell.

Lincoln and Hamlin the Jllack liepubli

next, and tho South will theu decide the
great question whether thoy will submit
to the domination of Black Republican
1 believe that the honoi' and i fcty of the
South in that contingency, will require the

THE AtiE OF Vlltl lE
Under lbs title of the age of. virtue, I
propose to iseus from tho Gezetto Office,
a family newspaper, if sufficient encour
ugemeut shall be manifested. ' The plan
ol the paper will bo developed under the
head we have adopted, in a few succeed
ing numbers of the Guzotle & Democrat,
to which articles, when they shall appear,
I invite sneciul attention. The want of
such a paper as I shall propose to issue,
will, I confidently trust, te felt in every
family. For the present, it is bearly re
marked, that tbe misBion of tho "Age of
Virtue" will be, to counteracted as fares
possiblo to nnturlize the perveited taste
for reading which has btcn formed to so
alarming an extent in every department
of society, ty that class of papers, called
family newspapers ; whish are filled with
Utile else than that modern style of Litera
ture, known as light reading ; and which
for the time boicg, has so misdirected tbe
minds, especially of the young, as almost
wholely to obliterate tbe sligheBt inclina
tion for substantial or instructive works.
I make no present reflections upon novel
reading ; but leave t':ose who read them,
te determin for themselves how much they
have been informed in tho really useful
lessons of life, or how much their moral
sentiments have been improved thereby
Beyond directing tho taste for reading
into its legitimate chaunol, tbe fuither
mission of "oge" will be, to inform the
understanding, improve the moinl st6nd
nrd of the individual, and elevate the ro
ligious sentiments of tho liesit. The
great fundamental principles of the chris
tian religion will be sustained, while see'
tarian doctrines will be eschewed. Local
or parly politics will know no place in the
"Age;" but worthy articles, sustaining
the right of man to govern himself, in
accordance with tho Republican Democra
tic American idea, will be incorporated.
Thegoverniag idea in the purposes to which
the'e" will be devoted, will exolude all
flimsy matter, or any sediment calculated
rather to impair, than to add to the un
derstanding, or (he health of virtuous ef
fort. Its columns will be filled in every
number with standard reading; nil of
which may be read in coming generations;
and therefore the work may be preserved
and bound. The scope which the "Age"
will compass, will be wido. in a future
article, the principle character ot its litera
ture will be briefly alludtd to,, with some
furthor reasons why such a work should
become a family newspaper. II. SCOTT.

Volcanic Eruption in Iceland. Ad
vices from Icoland give an aecount of an
eruption, after thirty-nine years' repose,
of the volcano called the Rotlugia of tbe
Myrdalsjokel mountains. On the 7 lb
of May several shocks of earthquake were
experienced in the parish of Myrdal, in
which the volcano is situated, aud the day
after an enormous volume of water was
cast up from the greater. Mixed with the
water were large quantities of cinders,
and the eruption was aoconipanied by a
subterranean noise. On the 11th and
12th smoke, cinders, and balls of fire
were thrown up. The smoke roso to bucIi
a height tbat it could be seen at Reikja-
ving, though mountains-five thousand feet
high rise between the two places. The
eruption continued, with iutervals moro
or loss long, to the 26th, but fortunately
it did no harm to places in tbe vicinity,
tbe cinders and other things it threw up
being carried by the wind partly tu sea
and partly on to some glaciers. It pre
sented a very imposing spectacle.
EST Gen. 6. A. Scrogqs, of Erie
oounty, New York, President of the A-
merican Slate Council of that State,
has made a speech declaring himself for
Lincoln. He oppose bitterly, and to the
death, the Brooks and Hunt scheme of
coalition with the Douglas men. He says
what kind of a metamphosis an American
can subject himself to, so as to find any
political affinity there, (with the Douo
LASiTiES,)he cannot imagine. He concludes
There was A time when your speaker's
voice was listened to in tbat camp with
Homo degree of consideration, and his
council was regarded of Borne avail in
doubtful questions, And whether you
will hear or whether you viill forbear, his
voice and council now is to seize that
gorgeous ensign of ours let it be high
advanced rally around it al! true Amer
ican hearts and in the van of the pro-
cesBion against the oppressor, let the gats
