The only thing that stands prominent in his
article, with the exception of his extreme igno-
ranee, is his lurking chagrin at the election of
Gey er. The Whig party was compelled to plant
itself upon s principle, by the maintenance of
sound and conservative views upon the subjects
dividing the public mind; and by doing this, it
had to abandon the little squad of free. oilers and
abolitionists who hang to its skirts. The mass

the support of the country, against tie schemes
of those pseudo philanthropists who delight to
unhinge society, to disturb the rights of property,
to degrade the white race for the elevation of the
black, that ultimately their evil designs may be
realized in scenes of disorder, insurrection, and
civil war. - They have proven this by the elec
tion of Mr. Geyer. It is trne this fact has in
volved thn into an inconsistency, which any
sensible and honest man will admit, but this is
nothing new, Bf en may mzVtjrrofetsiont ss they
please, but the responsibility of action, drives
them to rectitude.
.: They, talked oud and long about the terrors of
disunion, and the crocodile tears gushed in their
eyes when contemplating the fall of this great
Republic, by the bug-bears of "nullification" and
"secession." Where now are those venerable
old croaker 1 . Where are those office-seekers
who daily shuddered with dissembled fear, and
squeaked out conscious falsehood lor their own
profit?. . Their ends are accomplished, and their
