TUESDAY, DECEMBES 1, 1S57.
Xlie Kaatai Imbroglio Mr. Buchanan
and the Northern Sham Democracy.
If the telegraph ia correct ia reporting
Mr. Buchanan as sustaining the Constitu
tional Convention of Kansas, in submitting
the isolated question of slavery, and refus
ing to Fubmit the Constitution, to the peo
ple, he is likely to meet with serious oppo
sition from a portion of the sham democra
cy of the Xorth. Whilst some of the jour
nals of the partyrecipients possibly of gov
ernment patronage concur in sustaining
the action, of the Convention, some of the
ablest of the leading journals condemn it
most unequivocally. Amongst the latter,
are the Detroit Free Press, the home organ
of Gen. Cass; the Chicago Times, the organ
of Senator Douglas; and the Philadelphia
Press, edited by the notorious Forney, Mr.
Buchanan's man Friday. It may be of
some service to our sham democratic read
ers to have a few extracts from these jour
nals of their party served up tor them.
We shall, with this view, attempt the task.
We begin with the organ of Gen. Cass.
After 'speaking of the Constitution and the
mode of submission adopted, the Detroit
Free Press says
Upon this constitution, upon the question wheth
er this instrument should become tbe supreme law
of Knsas, the p--ODle are not allowed tbe privilege
of voting of saying yea or nay.
There has never been anything lik thU in lh
history of this country. An attempt such as this
has never before been made to impose upon the
people of a State about to ask entrance imo the
Union a constitution obnoxious to a majority of
them. Tbe Kansas Convention has cis'jnced it If
in tne ey-a of all decent roi'D.. It has not only
sousht to iuipos-' upon the people an obnoxious
constituiion, but it has delib-rately conspired to
violate tbe sacred compact cotiined iu h- Kansas
organic act, success in which would involve the
country in a new anti-shy, ry agitation in compari
son withwhieh the viol.-oce of all former agitations
would sink into utter insignificance.
Of coarse the free-State m n of Kara is will have
nothing to do with tha mockeiy of an ehction re
gr.iing this constitution, and of course Congress
will treat this contitution with the earn disreirird
that it treated the l op ka concern, tbe oue having
no mcr - validity than th other.
Again : says the Press, in another article
"We echo the dec! .ration of our Philsielp ia
eotemporary cont lined in another column, tht the
Northern man in Congress, or in other position,
who shall lend bis aid to any attempt or plot to de
feat the will of the majority of the people of Kan
sas will be punuhed with political annihilation. And
we have to warn Southern extremists, in and out
of Congress, not to delude themselves witb tbe im
pression that they will have the support of the
Democratic party of tbe North in any juggle to
fetch Kansas into the Union as a slave State against
the wish, s of its actual inhabitants. On this ques
tion the Northern Democratic party will be actuated
ty one impulse; It will not recede one inch from
i be preservation of the integrity of the great prin
ciple of the Kansas organic act."
Senator Douglas's organ, the Chicago
Tac Administration and Kansas A tele
prap ic despatch appears in our columns ibis morn
ing, furnished by the New Yoik Agent of the asso
ciated press, in which it is stated that the Admin
istration approve the action of the recent Conven
tion in Kansas, and have concluded that the ques
tions at iseue have been fairly submitted to the peo
ple. Such is the statement by telegraph; no au
thority 1? given, and no grounds furuiabed up in
whicb the statement is founded.
We doubt the statement made by telegraph.
We doubt tbe assertion that the President has de
clared that the n cent action of Convention , io with
holding the constitution from a vote upon it by the
people, meets hi approval. It is due to our read
ers that we should state tbe reason why we think
Mr. Buchanan has not approved such action, and,
as a consequence, why he tcill not approve it. Iu
1854 Congress pissed the Kansas-Nebraska act,
which act contained tbe following r irect and posi
live pledge: that Congress did not intend to "leg
islate slavery into any territory or State, nor ex
elude it therefrom, but to leave the: people thereof
perfectly free to form and regulate tbeir domestic
institutions in their own w y, subject only to tbe
Constitution of tbe United States."
The Times here gives extracts from
Mr. Buchanan's record to show that he is
pledged to the reverse of the course the
telegraph states he is about to pursue, and
closes as follows:
We have omitted all comments on the language
of the President which we have quoted. The coun
try el. c ted him to the office of President, and bas
curtained bis Administration since then under the
assurance that the privilege of voting for or against
the constitution would nevi r be di niod the people
of Kansns. Upon any other ground Mr. Buchanan
would nev r have been nominated at Cincinnati, or,
if nominated would never have been eh-ct-d. It
was the bright hope that tbe people of Kansas
coul'l, at the ballot-box, repair all wronps and ex
press their own free will, that enabled the Demo
cratic party to place the AdminUtration in power.
We d j not b lieve, therefore, that in the face
of all the cardinal points of the Democratic ftith
the Adn inistrjt'on will endorse any action which
denies to the people of Kansas, as flT- tu'.lly as it
denies to the people of En. land, the rk'ht of estab
lishing a constitution fir tUr Slate of Kan-as.
Iu another article in reply to interroga
tories from a black republican touching the
position and intentions of Senator Doughy
the Times says
Without any authority from Senator Douglas to
answir these or any other questions which oar
neighbors may put to him, we venture, however,
the opinion that, tr joying as he does the unlimited
confidence of the Democratic party of this Stat-,
aud knowing as he does their unanimous wishes,
be will at the Drxt session of the Senate, a be has
her. tofora done, iorist with all his power, by vote
and by iprech, that theproviaion of tie Kns.
Net raska act "that the people of Ksdb a shall be
tree to regulate thtir own domestic insiitutions in
tbeir own way" shall be observed in good faith,
and positively earned into practical execution,
forming our opinion from the seme reasons, we
al-o viDlure the prediction that he will not stand
colily back while the South cran s slavery down
the throaia of tbe people of that or any other Terri
tory, without the consent of tbepeople themseves.
Forney's Press closes a long article
against the action of the Convention as
We st-oggled with all oor ener ies for the passage
of the Nebraska bill; for the triumph of iu princi
ples before tbe great tribunal of tbe p. ople ; for
the election of Mr. Buchanan; for the defence of
l.U Administration, including bis Kansas policy,
an 1 indefenceof the official action of Gov. Walker;
aud we now desire as earnestly as any man in the
country a Nir and peaceful settlement of this whole
question. But we ak tbxt the people should have
me ribt to form their own iustitutiona ia tbeir
owo way ; and that this right should t a. cured to
them frvely. fairly, and un .-q-ii vocally. We ask
that when Kansas cornea Into the Union it shill be
under a constitution whicb bas received the en
dorsement of a nisjjrity of ber citizen fairly ex
pressed; that she should take h r place as a me ro
ller of the Confederacy under ao instrument whi. h
his ia every hue acquired that full degree of vitali
ty that popular approval alooe cau five, cot under
a constitution framed uoder restrictions which ig
nore the sovereignly of her cluxenaand treat ihrtn

The Milwaukie iVrtr, the leading sham
Democratic paper of Wisconsin, after pub
lishing the "schedule," says
"It will bo observed this "schedule" declares
slavery to exist lt Kauaas, and a4Ums to take
way from the people the power to abolish lit Tbe
Constitution, sUo, independently of the clause that
it is proposed to saboiit to tbe people, would fix
slavery upon the Territory. We will cot to-d.y

We might add to theso excerpts, selec
tions from the Albany Argus, the Illinois
State llsgiiler, the llarrUburg Union, and
other journals1, which have always borne
the hatn democratic standard, but tleia
will euSce for to day.
From AVaahlnjf tia
Correspondence of the Baltimore Ban
Wabhixqtos, Nov'r. 24. The Democratic
newspapers from the Northern States c ina to
us witb articles upon the Kansas convention,
and it would appear that the opposition to tbe
action of the coDventioD from leading Demo
cratic journalists is becoming more and more
decided and intense. The journals received
last right are replete with denonciations cf
the convention and its sets, as utterly hostile
to the meaning and intent of the KaDsas-Ne-braska
bills, and a violation of tliB pledges
given by the Administration, by Gov. Walk
er and judge Donglas to the people of Kansas,
that they should have an opportunity to vote
upon the constitution which should be framed
by the convention. The PI iladelphia Press
and the Chicago Times follow up their views
in daily aud vigorous articles, which wear an
air of more than usnal political authority.
It is now quite csrtain that the latter organ
speaks the eentimente r f Jadge Douglas, the
reputed author and aide defender of the
Kansas-Nebra-k act. Were it not so, we
should have been advis d of the fact em this.
A rumor prevail?, also that Governor Walker
himself is decidedly and openly hostile to the
acts of the convention, and will oppose the
acceptance of the constitution to be submit
ted by them to Congre&s. Go this be w?
We shall soon see. Governor Walker's friends
here have supposed that he was on the eide of
the convention in this matter.
Meanwhile, the administration have deter
mined to sustain tbe convention, and are in
favor of the acceptance of tbe constitution by
ConpresH, in whatevt r form it may come
and it can only come with the slavery article.
It is much to be regreted that this distur
bing ti-pio should again be brought before
Cot grebs and the country, and it is now to be
presented in a more exciting form, apparently,
than at any previous time. The contest will
be so sharp in the Democratic ranks on this
subject, that it will be hardly necessary for
tbe Black Republicans to aggravate it.
Hon. John Bell.
We have hitherto refrained from saytni a word
in reeard to the course pursued by our Democratic
Leeisldture towards Ihe distinguished gentleman
who f name appe rsatthe head of this aric!e; nor
do we do so now with the lst hope of awakening
ono pine of regret in the bosoms of those who
efif-ct- d his overthrow. We are too well acquain
ted with democratic ttc'ic1 to expect them to r--gr
t anvthinq they m-'y have done, provided it wa
successful in accnrnplishine the end for whl-b it
was designed. Spoils and power" has ever been
their motto, no mitt- r how th' y wr attaint,
whether it was b? denouncing the pttrio'ic Fill
mors and the chivalric Taylor s Aboli'ionist-; or
in the utter di-reeard of all consistency in electing
a successor to a Senator to years before the ex
p'uiiion of bis term; r still again in denouncing
ibe ealluot Seott 'or hi sympathy for for igners ami
then in four years aftT, denouncing those who
w- re opposed to the evil tendencies of foreign im
niisratior; it wsshII rijihtsnd proper provide'1 they
could by f-o doiu succeed in carrying tbir ob
ject into ftVct. For these reasons, we sy, we
wer not surprised at tbe course taken by them fo
ward Mr. B II, and we may add, that we wool I
not be surprised at anythiug done by the leaders
of that party. But, while we retrr. t that pariiz n
spiiit that led to the overthrow of Mr. Bkll, it is a
source of peculiar pleasure to us to remember the
course pursued by the gall.int membrs of the Am
erican party in the Legislature. Tbey merit and
will doubtless receive tbe heartfelt gr itnl-itions of
all eood and conservative men. We woul t not, if
we could, conceal our regret at tbe loss of Mr. Bell's
influence in the Senate, for we are confident th-tt
every one with th - lcst spark of conservatism in
bis bosom will equ lly regret thit one so didtin
tioguiebed, so able and eloquent, sboul 1 be forced
by tbe power of pirtizanism to retire from the
councils of the Nation.
Tbe talents and fame of John Bell, are coeval
with the -birth of the old Whig party. Nor are
they coufiued to Tennessee alone. There is not a
State in the confederacy where patriot ism ba a
home, or whi re a love of the Uniou is inculcated,
in wi'ich the talents of John Bell are not acknowl
edged and bis patriotism and dt-volion to the Union
venerated. And since the death of the great
"Seiiatori.il three," those great intellectual lumina
ries, there is no man in this Union more entitled
to the esteem and confidence of his countrymen
than the Hon. John Bkll. Dis name has ever
been a synonim of Union, patriotism and conser
vatisra. Inspired with the sublimity of the great
truths and confident of the harmoniour effect of
the issues of the old Whig party, as expounded
by Cut and Wkbstsr, he has ever battled for
their supremacy. This has always been tbe cause
of th hatred manifested by the democratic party
towards him. Commencing in the days of Jack
son, that hatred bas only grown more fierce, and
less scrupulous by time, and just so long us Mr.
Bell continues to pursue his upright couis -, refus
ing to pander to the pn judicesof a misguided party
and exposing the recklessness of their conduct, just
so long may be expect volumes of abu-e from the
so cilled democratic party. And as the dema
gogues of Aristidiio days acted towards that in
corruptible patriot Just such treatment may be ex
pect from those of the present day, who know an J
But all things work together, IU said, for good,
and as sure as we have a country, just so sure will
the great honest, but misguided masses of the dem
ocratic party, in days to come, hurl their indigna
tion upon ihoee who too such an unfair coins - to
rob the Senate and the country of bis inestimable
services at a time when tbey were so much needed

Mr. Geo. W. 8eal, a citizen of Winchester,
Va., we learn from tbe Republican, has per
fecttdan apparatus for the generation of gas
from grease, 'r from any animal r vegetable
snbst ii ce which contains unctuou9 properties.
The apparatus may be attached to a kitchen
chamber etove, and one pint of grease, tbe
otldl of the table, will make about a hundred
cubic feet of gas, which burus wWi a brillian
cy unsurpassed by any other ga, and no smoke
or noxious element escapes from it while burn
ing. A single burner, with a brilliancy of
about fifteen candles, will only consume f.ur
feet per hour, so that a pint of grease will
serve to illuminate an ordinary dwelling fir a
week. The entire work, the Republican says,
can be put up at a cost wilhhi tbe reach of
all; are simple and not liable to get into dis
order. We hail this invectiou as another ev
idence that there is inventive genius in the
South, which, if properly fostered apd devel

dependence upon Northern manufacturers and
artists fir the conveniences and embellish

ItlaJ. Win. II. 1'olk and ttie Know-otl-ing-
During a recent debate in the Bouse of Repre
sentifives, betwe.n Mr. Maney, of Davidson, and
Maj. Polk, of Maurv, the former !,ntimat"d that the
latter whs at one time a member of the Know
Not hinz Order. In reply to Mr. Maney, Major
Polk Slid, in snhsunce, that aithoueh he had had
the ritti il and obligations read to him, be had never
taken the obligations had never entered a Know
Nothing Council and that the p rty offered biiu
everything, and he rej. ct-d it with scorn.
This declaration, wn.-n it w a read in the pro
ceedings of the Hous", must have been indeed,
it must still be v. ry bumiliiting to the friends of
Mj. Polk. Coming from a man of bis position, it
is remarkable, to say the le tet of it.
M-jor Polk not only entered a Know-Nothing
Council and took the oaths and ohlit tions of the
Order, but very willingly suffered himself to De
nominated .s its candidate for Congress, and de
dined the nomi- ation, (not "with scorn,") only
when he bad fully sati-fie.l himself that th pirty
ia this District was loo weak to elect bim.
Maj. Polk denied Mr. Maney'a intimation he
will not deny this statement. Columbia Mirror.

On the 17th day of November the track had
been hid from C-dnmbus, Ky., to within three
miles and sixty-six hundredth of a mile, of
the Tennessee line, and thre is no reasonable
doubt but that the work has progressed at
the rate of about a quarter of a mile a day
since; therefore, we may safely that the
work is now within two miles and a third of
the line. There were thirty-four hands em
ployed, laying trick at that time, and the
force constantly augmenting.
