Wo devote a large portion of our
space tins morning to the puMicatioii
of an addrew to tlie people of Iowa,
prepared by Will. Torn I in son, lion. D.
A. Mahoney, Hon. O. A. l'attereon,
Hon.Tlco. W. M'Leary aud lion. D.
Sherward, a Committee appointed for
that purpose, by the Democratic State
CoaventioD which met iu June last.
The address is ably prepared, the
members of the Committee being com
posed of the moat distinguished Demo
crats in the State.
It contains a succinct history of the
Democratic party from the organiza
tion of the government down to the
present time, showing that every meas
ure of national importance and every
statute of a national character, except
the Pugive Slave Law, was first start
ed, and afterwards carried through or
eaacted by the Democratic party.
It w also shown that while the op
poaition have changed their names aad
changed their principles, the Demo
cratic party stands to-day the same, as
when it fust came forth from the hands
of the rages who formed the fabric of
oar liberties.
•While
a
Federalist*," "Republicans,'
democratic Republicans," WhigB,"
Abolitionists," Maine LawisU*," and
Know Nothings," have arisen, nour
ished for a brief period, and then gone
oat of existence among the things
that were but are not," the Democrat
ic party, the same in name and the
aaine in principles, is to-day stronger in
members and dearer than ever ia the
hearts of the people.
Hndden excitements sweeping over
fltt ccuntry, have destroyed its
tige
pres­
for a time, but on each occasion
the truth unconqnerable has arrisen
again with redoubled strength, again
to renew the battle with error.
During tbo past three or four years,
file republicans taking advantage of the
MKansas
excitemeBt Iprt tootrolled
the destinies of th« State rfilowa. At
while the excitement ran high
jtyiey swept the Stale by large m^ri
bat on the occasion of each sab
lUetion their majoriti* grew
notil the la*t eleetiou was
but ban-ly carried.
The indications from all paits ef the'
State are that the people who have]
been gradually awakening have at last!
bad their eyes thoroughly opened and
that on the 12th of otol»er the econ
omical reign of the democracy will be
re inaugurated in the State of Iowa.
That .the leaders of the Republican
party consider it dead,
is
evidenced by
the fact that in New York, Ohio and
other State* they are endeavoring to
ionn a new Know Nothing Republican
party and that the party in this State is
awaking to a knowledge of the haue
fcct,'inay be satisfactorily demonstrated
by the feeble but yet systematic at
tempts which are being made to bring
about a similar union here.
The address is an able and interest
ing one. Let all give it a careful
perusal.

A movement in favor of Judge
Bennett, second in importance not even
to the action of the DeWitt Clintonian
the republican organ of Clinton county,
is the support which has lately been
given to to the people's candidate for
Judge by the Muscatine Zeiluu/, the
organ of the Germans of Muscatine
•ounty.v
The Zeitung is a paper of wide in
fluence and edited with much ability.
That it reflects the will not only of the
Germans of Muscatine but also of this
city and county, is unquestionable, and
the election of udgc Bennett may now
be conmh red certain.
The Muscatine Journal, tHht small
sized sheet, with which we have here
tofore had numerous passages at arms,
appreciating the fact that the days of
Mr. Dillon are numbered, unless the
Zi itnnff can be persuaded to retrace its
course, gets down on it* knees to that
paper, and iu the most humble, and ab
ject strains, implores, and talking "like
a father,w advises it to reconsider Ma
actiou.
We fear for the Journal, that" 6oft
soap" will have as little inlluence upon
the Germans of Muscatine, when tlioy
know they are right, an the threats and.
denunciations of the /o:Wffand Times
have had upon the Republicans of

VUTI:HS OF IOWA
The niiilersitrneil were appointed l»y the
relnoer:ltie State Convention held at Iowa
City, Jiinf 21th, ls:,s, a committee to pro
pare a State Address to the voters of Iowa,
oil the i*)ueu before the people to be deeided
at the ensuing eleetiou. An fueli committee
we present for vour consideration some of
many reasons why we lire convinced that a
change in our State otlieers would be betie
tieiul to the State at large, ami why *ueh a
result i» at this time essential for the ends of
justice and a returning prosperity.
NATIONAL Ijl KSTI.AS.
Firmly believing thftt the policy of the
Democratic pnrty, when fully nnderetrod
and calmly considered, will meet the en
dowment of a very large majority of the
voters of Iowa, we would nr-k you to reflect
U|HII a few undeniable facts here presented.
The Democratic party ha« maintained its
organization since tint formed under the
lead of Thomas .letl'erson. The issues then
distinguishing it from Federalism were par
tially as follows
Democrats were in favor of a plain and
simple government, economically adminis
tered, easily understood, protecting the per
sons and property of its citizens, giving
eipial and exact juetiee to all, disjtenfing
its favors, like the dews of heaven, alike
upon the rich and poor.'"
Federalists favored a government similar
to that of tJreat Britain, with court para
pharualia, and a centralization of power in
the General Government
Democrats held that the Government
should hold and handle its own fun is, re
garding nothiug :ts money but money it
self.
Federalism favored a man moth U. States
liank Corporation, under the eontrol of a
few politicians, so that, the whole money
|ower ot the country could be wielded for
the building up of that party, at. the ex
pense, and despite of the producing pcrtion
of the people.
Democrats held that no national debt
should be created, but tlif^t every expense
of the Goveriiuent should be paid at the
time it accrued.
Federalism favored a great national debt,
holding it to be a great national blessing—
that as the debt of Great liritain was the se
er.rity «f the throne, so would our creditors
insuro the stability of the Union.
1 emocracy contended for "FreeTrade and
Sailors' Uighte," aud vindicated the integri
ty of the Americau Flag, declaring that the
rii ht of senrch, and the impressment of A
mericau seamen from our vessels as claimed
ami practiced by Great liritain, was cause
of war with that country.
Federalism stood forth in the national
halls, the pulpits and the press, and declar
ed that Great liritain was right, and we
were wrong.
The Democrat!'* party declared war with
England, and triumphantly terminated the
second war for independence.
Federalism denounced the war, gave "aid
and comfort to the enemy, and met in con
vention at Hartford to devise some mode of
dissolving the Union.
At this era Federalism sank into its dis
honored grave, as a distinct iarty, and in
dispersed guerrilla bands only met the great
party of the people, the Democracy, until,
in 1 is:i J, an opposition re organization took
place under the name of Whig."
Henry Clay, with his "AmericanSystem,"
rallied the common enemy. It wes in those
days when the Giants of American S:ates
mauship developed their mighty }owers in
the natioual forum. Then we had iu Con
gress such men as Silas Wright, Daniel Web
eter, John C. Calhoun, ITeury Clay, Thca. IT.
Benton, James Buchanan, Lewis Cass, John
tjuincy Adams, William Allen, and a bright
list of other great and notable names which
will trar.smit to posterity a thousand years
hence, as a d.stinet era in the political an
nals of the world, the fierce encounter be
tween Whiggery and Democracy, extending
for twenty years, from 1832 to 1862.
Then, with the defeat of (Jen. Scott for
the presidency, the old Whig party, too,
gave up its organisation, its name aud its
distinctive purposes. The people had re
peatedly endorsed every Democratic meas
ure. and Democracy btcame and it the G'ov
ernmtut.
As of old, when Federalism laid down his
arms to the victorious democracy, the oppo
sition in scattered bewilderment would here
and there tiud a foothold, so it was on fie
disruption of the Whig Party. Momentary
issues and momentary men have beea gath
ered together, lashed by the eords of self
interest, and serve temporary 'platforms'
on whieh to float down tlie stream of time
to the oeeaa of obHvioa a few resting spir
it* hers and there, who, rattier thaabe sore
of safety in the good old Demoertftle Sfafo of
State, "go down to the seas," la erasy thai'

""""HIHl1 .It 'I
Thtio, then, have we idiown the Hittory
of De'i.neraey to be the History of the N»
tio i. Against its iron-ribU-H principles I
the political storms of r. riury, and 1 He
n|»r* of faiiaticuiu, have beaten in vain, I
and thic day we stand before the world tlie
same proud o!d Party, the same honored
name, as when organized by Thomas Jetfer i
son. Hie truths of American con|UesU in
the Field, on the Vean, in Cabinets—all i
cluster thick on eveiy pa.'e of that History.
Kvery war of our county hns been (ought
by the Democracy—every acquisition of
Territory has been inude the De'noctacy
—every law on our Statute Hooks of a gen
eral nature (except the Fugitive Slave Law)
is of Democratic enactment—every terri
tory has been organized and every new
State admitted into lite Union by the Demo
eratic I'arty.
Wt •at, now, is the reason given why you,
the 1'eople, by your votes, should dishonor
that brave old Party whieh you and your
falhers before you have upheld as the last
hope of Freedom to a World
In the old Abolition 1'urty a great por
tion of the northern wing of the oppo-ition
took aanctuary, after the disbanding of the
Whig organization, and they changed its
name to that of lirjutbltrau. That it is noth
ing but that identical old Abolitionism—
n'.thm/ chnwjui Lut the name—we a*k your
attention to the toliowinif facts
Abolitionists held ttiat slavery was a
great National Sin, and should be abolished
wherever the General Government had ex
clusive legislative authority, such as iu the
District ot Columbia, the Navy Yards aud
Military I'osts, and in the Territory*.
The Uepublican Par.y, iu its Philadel
phia Platform, pronounced their principles
on this point in these words:
JitftlreJ, That with our liepubliean fa
thers we hold it to be a self-evident truth
that ail men are endowed with the inalien
able ri.dit of liberty, and the persuit of hap
piness, and that the primary object and ul
terior design of our federal Government
went to secure these rights to all persons
ut£fer its exclusive jnrisdietion.
What more did abolitionism ever contend
for than to make it the primary oi/jetl anil
ulterior dt v'/w of our i'tilrral (lOrrrtnntnt'
thus to encrosch upon the rights, the pro
perty, the peace, the institutions aud pros
perity of the southern portion of our Union?
Abolitiuiiii-is three times ran candidates
for the Presidency, and the cardinal point
of their creed was that Congress had exclu
sive governmental control over the Terri
tories.
Republicans nominated John C. Fremont,
and htood him on this plank of the Phila
delphia Platform:
Htsolvcd, That the Constitution confers
upon Congress xnv rti'jn jwer over the
Territories of the United rotate for their
government."
Tims old Abolitionism and modern lie
puhlicnnisin are show to be identical in all
cardinal fointH. Both deny to the people
of the Territories the American Birthright
of self government. Uepuhlicanism seeks
to divert |«wers reserved to the People by
the 'onsiitutioi), aud concentrate them Up
on Congress, for upon this theory only can
they come before the ''eople and show any
legitimate connexion between the question
ot slave aud a Congressional canvass.—
Where Abolitionism began, and where it
ends, will be found the limits of Republi
canism. Slavery agitation is the life blood
of the opposition. In order to justify this
sympathy with negroism they propose forc
ing the white people of the Territories into
subjection and slavery to the will of Con
gress. Wr« close thi:i branch by quoting
this able summary of facts from the Cincin
nati A'uyuircr:
"Theie is one stern, undeniable histori
cal fact, which completely destroys nil the
points urged for argument, and made in be
half of thi- republican orgnnizatirn. The
sole mission claimed for that party, is tint
it is necessary to prevent he extension of a
slavery into free territory. Now, in reply
the records of our country prove that from
the time this government was organized
down totho present, not n mile of tree ter
ritory was ever converted into slavery.—
Ou the contrary, the amount of slave terri
tory in 1*700 was nine-tenths ol the Union.
Three-quarters of itaie now free. There
was then but oue free stale to fifteen slave.
There are now seventeen free States to fif
teeu slave State9. The difference is soon to
be increased by the admission of Kansas
and iregon, thus making nineteen to fifteen.
The United States, it is true, have acquired
Louisiana, Florida, and Texas, but slavery
existed in them when they were annexed,
and would have existed now if they had not
been added to us. It seems astonishing
when the republicans have written so much
about slavery extension into free territory
that there never has been nil instance of it
in our history. Yet such is the fact. Im
mense encroachments, however, have been
made by lree institutions upon slave.iy.
HIK AL'AU (IOVKUNMKNT.
We have thus brietly considered question
in a Nationallight. There is also a matter
of State History entering deeply into this
canvass. It is the enormous ii,crease of ex
penses. At the time that James W. Grimes
was elected Governor in 1S54, the country
was intensely agitated about the repeal ot
the Missouri compromise. The passions and
sectional prejudices of the People of Iowa
were appealed to to remove from power the
Democracy who had hitherto held exclusive
control ot our tate Government. It was
represented that we had been extravagant
and profligate. The opposition held forth
the banner of lirtrmrhmeiit aud Reform."
To their truth a:iiT honesty, let us revert to
our past financial histoiy.
In 184» the State was organized under
Democratic offloers. The total expenses for

In all his time we are undergoing the ex
penses incident to forming a new govern
ment. Notwithstandidg these figures, the
cry of extravagance and unnecessary expen
ditures was raised. At the close of the
Democratic administration of State ntfairs
we bequeathed to our Republican successors
the sum of Fifteen Thousand fire hundred and
fifty-tiro dollars and fifti/ firr cents, cash in
the' treasury. [See Grimes' Message, 1864,
and Auditor's Ueport for 1854.]
In December 1S54, the first Republican
Legislature of Iowa convened at Iowa City.
Ijook over the result of this propitious inau
guration of the party thus pledged and sworn
to retrenchment and reform."
E&J-EXsES OK BEl'l BUCANlSy.
From 185:} to 1856 the expenses of the
State Government were #249,150 80.
From 1856 to 1857, a period of one year
only, they were $371,907 OU.
Thus in THREE YEARS a Republican
administration has cost tax-payers the sum
of SIX HUNDRED AND TWENTY-ONE
THOUSAND AND FIFTY-SEVKN DOL
LARS and 83 cents!
Contrast this with the cost of KIGHT
years under Democratic administration, a
mounting to only $3'jS,57o 06.
For the historical verity of all the forego
ing Facts ami Figures" we refer the Peo
ple to this Annitor's Reports for the years
corresponding to the dates given.
Thus have we shown that E'njht years un
der Democratic administration cost less than
two year* of Republican rule, by TW) HUN
DRED and TWENTY-TWO THOUSAND
FOUR HUNDRED and SEVENTY-EIGHT
DOLLARS fc SEVENTY-SEVEN CENTS!
To reduce the comparison, we ask the vo
ters to mark the fact that in the last year
(1854) of Democratic power the State Gov
ernment cost only $51,9511,45.
Tlie last Republican rule (1807) cost the
same people
$371.'.l'7,nr.
Making over SEVEN TIME* AS MITCH
in favor of a Democratic administration!
In addition to all of this we have now an
indebtedness against the State of Iowa of
FIVE HUNDRED and ONE THOUSAND,
EIGHT HUNDRED and FORTY-TKEE
DOLLARS and NINETY-EIGHT CENT'S 1
All these figures are taken direct from the
official documents in the departments of the
State Government.

Great frauds, aad gross vkdatioas,90i offi

Tlie hair breadth escapes of a young gen
tleman of Louisville, iu descending into the
tn.-i'lstroni of the Mammoth Cave, has been
extensively published. The Bowling Green
(Jnz'tte (a Know Nothing paper) whoso edi
tor was a wituesa of the fearful scene, spoils
the graphic pun-picture by detailing the
facts. That paper says:
The circnUlfctanees under irhich the de
scent was made alTord a capital opportunity
for hoaxing the public with an exaggerated
story. moat of the facts detailed there
is but one witness, whose knowledge of
them was acquired under the inllnenep
unnatural exciument and fearful expec
tancy. So nothing less than a highly
wrought description ought, prolmbly lje ex
pected, We are informed by a gentleman
of this place, who was presnt and poured
the water on the burning rope referred U
that the statements of the facts of which lie
has any knowledge, are greatly exaggerat
ed. lie says the rope did not take tire but
that the pmoke referred to was occasioned
by the rapid movement of the rope over
the timber whieh was used as a pulley. Ilo
also expresses the opinion that the depth of
the pit does not exceed 125 or 1T.0 feet.—
There were others present who were anxious
to make the "perilous decent", but Prof.
Wright (who seems to have controlled it)
would not yield his consent.
