The -Journal, to ihow what little aboliton
isra existed in the I&te canvass, refers to the
.-rote of the State of New York, where the
. aggregate number polled for Gerri: Smith
, waa ICo bein;r about three votes to eaca
county. ,.-."
. What necessary connection there is be
tween the premises, - r.a stated by. the Jour
nal and the conclusion at which it arrives "is
more than we can see. There wa3 just' as
much abolitionism, in the late canvass, . as
there has been in any priced ir.g one, and we
might, we think, say there waa vastly more
of. this element than in any former contest
The oaly remarkable feature about it is,
that it has exhibited Itself in alliance with a
faction betweea whom and :t there waa a
strond affinity of sentiment ' and purpose.
Instead of adhering to an independent can
' data of their own, the radical abolitionists of
tha country united in support of Fremont,
on tha principles of the Philapelphia plat
form. In ao doing they did not lose their
distinctive character as abclitianists, or aban
don a single plank of their old party plat
form. Aa was proclaimed by Julian, Garri
son, Wendell Phillips and others, every abo
litionist of the country "could stand upon
the Philadelphia platform and, without do
ing violence to its language, preach the whole
anti-slavery goepeL" They did stand open
it, spoke and voted for Fremont and other
cadidatea of the party, and were publicly
- cheered and applauded for the bold and rad
ical abolition sentiments which they promul
gated. ' So far from proving that there was but lit
tle Abolitionism in the late canvass, as is as
sumed by the Journal, the facts to which
that paper calls attention, prove simply that

itself to an organization embracing none but

new standard of faith. What they had been
accustomed to regard as orthodox under the
old regime, waa equally orthodox under the
new. By the alliance, Abolitionism was not
aloughed off, but became a fixed and recog
nized element of- Black Republicanism.
When the Journal, therefore, undertakes to
ascertain the amount of Abolitionism that
was exhibited In the recent canvass, it will
have to look elsewhere than at the vote poll
ed for Gerrit Smith. No appreciable portion
of the great army of "shriekers" rallied
around the standard of their great file leader, days.

Hat there is no Democrat in Indian who,
for his years, has done more efficient service
for his party. Intelligent, accomplished and
energetic, he was, during the late canvass, al

out the State, were made by him. Hi3 effort
at Richmond, Maj. Harris, of Kentucky, who
was prasenr, and who is himself an orator of
no mean powers, pronounced one of the ablest
he had ever heard. At Louisville, at Mad

praises on all sides, srnd it was as ni;:ch owing
to his exertions, as to those of any other man,

Feom Washixgtos. The Supreme Court
of the United States convened on Monday.
All the Judges were present. The case of
Scott vs. Sanders came up for argument.
This is a case of great interest, and its deci
sion involves, among other things, the con
stitutionality of any such legislation as tha)
which enacted the establishment of the Mis
souri Compromise line.
The plaintiff, a man of color, brought suit
to try his right to freedom. lie claims to
have been emancipated by his master in hav
ing taken him to reside in Illinois ; which
act is declared by the Constitution of that
State to emancipate him. The Circuit Court
decided against the plaintiff, on the ground
that by his return to Missouri, his master's
right, dormant while in Illinois, waa revived;
that the Constitution of Illinois was a penal
law which the Courts of other States were
not bound to enforce.
Canal Trustee The ''State Sentinel," "Evans .

The State Sentinel, Evansville Enquirer,
Terro Haute .Journal, Lafiyette American,
and one or tv.-o other papers seem to bo get
ting into a very unnecessary squabble over
the Canal Trustee.
Although we are located at a point where
one of the candidates for that office resides,
and being at neither extreme of the canal,
but about midway, and at a point where there
haj probably been as much just causs of com

the Enquirer, icsist that on thit account we
6hould have the Trustee. Nor shall we, be

We have an utter abhorrence to anything
like Sectionalism and where we hear "lo

New York Cektral Raileoad. We ne
tice by the New York papers that the earn
ings of the New York Central railroad for the
month of October reach the enormous azre-
gate of $928,000. This is an increase of some
$200,000 over the corresponding period last
year, and is believed to be unprecedented in
the history of railroads. Indeed, the New
Central now earns more money than any
other road in the world of the same number
of miles of trunk line.
These enormous earnings are a substantial
proof of the increasing popularity of the road.
Nor is it to be wondered at. Those who have
lately passed over the route cannot fail to
nave Deen strucic witn tne admirable man
agement of the road; the speed and punctu
ality of tho trains, the courtesy of the conduc
tors, and the comfort and cleanliness of the
cars. In all these respects there is little left

wish for.

ings of the four great lines of travel between

testimony before the jury, both written and
oral. Drs. Ritchie and Athon were retained
as experts, and the whole science of the
mind fully explored. Judge Huntington
gave to the jury an able and intellectual
charge, and the jury, after being absent some
time, were unable to agree and were dis

Company could be held liable for acceptan

Railroad Company for the accommodation of
the latter Company, where the proceeds of
the bills went to the use of the Greenville

held that the Indianapolis and Pittsburg

The Slave Trade FnotJBisHixo. A gen
tleman who has recently arrived in this city
from the coast of Africa, states that he learn
ed from good authority that there were thirty
vessels, principally Portugese, or sailing un
der that character, lying in the creeks at the
mouth of the Congo River, waiting for car
goes of slaves and on the look-out for oppor
tunities to get to sea uuperceived by the
cruisers. Sheltered by the thick growth of
forest which abounds there, these slavers are
safe from observation. Persons are stationed
near the mouth of the river to give warning
of the vicinity of national vessels, and when
the coast u clear the traders select a dark
night and a fair wind, and effect their escapy
in safety. The English Government have a
steamer on the coast, but it is too slow to be
of much service. With a propitious breeze,
the smart clipper-built slavera find little dif
ficulty in evading the pursuit of their clumsy
antagonists. Not long ago a brig supposed
to be an American craft was making her
way out of the mouth of the Congo River,
with four hundred negroes on board, when
she was espied by the steamer, which prompt
ly gave chase. 1 he brig slipped away from
her pursuer with the greatest ease. The
steamer fired several shots at her, but with-
ou. success. When the brig had got out of
tho reach of the steamer's guns, the captain,
by way of tantalizing the baffled cruiser, or
dered a negro to be pulled up to the yard arm,
t here he wa3 allowed to hang for some time,
as an insulting token of the acknowledged
character of the vessel. The captain also sig
nified his exultation by standing at the stern
and fiddling as his brig scudded away. It is
said that the trade in the vicinity of the Con
go might be stopped, or at least materially di

Cause of Disuxiox Between the Nobtii
and the South. The Southern Argus, of
Norfolk, November 26, asks why the peopla
of this "God favored nation are so hostile to
each other." It replies that it arises "from
ignorance of one another." It blames both
Northern and Southern journals for their
misrepresentations, and the extremists of
both sections of the Union for their mad fol
ly. It alludes to the "bountiful offerings"
of Northern philanthropy in the times of
pestilence, and hopes that the people will
become sick of excitements and demagogues.
Laf. Journal.
There is in the anewer of the Southern
Argus, "a volume cf truth in a nut shell."
It is the grand solution of the question which
it propounds. The concentrated bitterness,
prejudice and hate which exists in one sec
tion of the Union against the people cf the
other, is just in proportion to the "ignorance
of one another" that prevails with each. On
each side oHhe Black line, where the people
mingle with each other; study each other's
characters, habits and dispositions, there is
the same cordiality and good feeling exist
ing between them as though they were citi
zens of the same Stete. In these localities
"abolitionists" and "fire eaters" are as rare as
"reptiles in Ireland," and disunionists are a
greater curiosity than Barn urn's Wolly
Horse. As you recede from that line, the
feeling of hostility of the North against the
South, and of the South against the North,
increases. It is in the extreme Northern and
Southern States that fanaticism, bigotry and
" all nncharitableness n attains its climax.
It is in these regions that such newspat er
funguses as the Boston Liberator, the Charles-
ton Mercury, the 2?. O. Delta, et id omne genua,
flourish in all their unnatural rankness. The
people of these two extremes know nothing
of one another practically, and what little
they do know, through the "best recognized
channels of public information," comes to
them in a form so distorted by prejudice and
exaggerated by malice, that it is worse than
total and absolute ignorance. The dark side
of the picture i3 kept studiously and promi
nently in view, while the bright side is just
as constantly and carefully kept out of sight.
Hence it is that extremes of locality are
marked by extremes of fanaticism and sec
tional hostility. The most effectual cure for
this folly and wickedness maybe found in
the four words " Know each oteeb bet
ter I"

Virginia Electoral College and the Cabinet.
From a publication of the facta, by the
Richmond Enquirer, it appears that the
recommendation of the Virginia Electoral
College of Governor Floyd to a scat in Mr.
Buchanan's Cabinet, about which so much
has been said,was never fully carried out. A
paper to that effect was drawn up and signed
by most of the Electors, but was suppressed
at the requst of Governor Floyd. He was
opposed to that mode of action by his friends,
as ono calculated to embarrass the President
eleat, and as one net agreeable to himself.
The Enquirer also says that Gov. Wise
was wholly ignorant of such a paper, and
was committed, in no respect whatever, to
its expression of preference. He has ex
pressed no preference for any one aa a Cabi
net Minister, but on the contrary has de
clined to do so, and approves of Governor
Floyd's suppression of the paper.

Equality of the Races.
Wherever and whenever the idea of an
equality of the races, black and white, has
been submitted ta a practical test, its fallacy
has been conclusively demonstrated. Whilst
the blacks themselves experience no mateii
al improvement from an equal participation
of rights and privileges with the whitas, the
currse of retrogresion and degeneracy has
fallen with a heavy hand upon the latter.
The result of thii unnatural mixture of the
races in the central regions of our own con
tinent is not one of a special and isolated
character, produced by special and local
causes. The result is the same, in all its
features, wherever the experiment has been
The Mercury, a paper published at Natal,

citizenship, speaks of the uneasiness felt at
the constant increase of the Kaffir population,

alive by the repeated Kaffir outrages upon
young children and women outrages of the
most disgusting and barbarous character. It
laments the dangers to which European so
ciety is exposed by its position in contact with
a mass of polluting and brutish barbarism,
and says, that " the nonsense of equal laws
and equal justice for blacks and whites must
be discarded, if cither class is to live peacably
in Katal."
Here is a fact which ought to commend it
self to the consideration of those tender foot

interests between the whites and the negroes
of this country.

We made some remarks upon this subject

Salaries of Governor and Judges. It
is a fact well known to ali thinking men that
the salaries of the Governor ani Judges in
this State are far below what they ought to
be. Although the doctrine of low st laries is
rather popular with Democrats, we think it
ought not to be carried so far as has been
done in Indiana, where the pay of the offices
named is altogether below the value of the
service expected. Tho laborer is worthy his
hire, and public servants ought to be paid as
liberally as others who labor for individuals.
For these reasons we recommend the Legis
lature to increase the salaries of the Governor
and Judges to a sum at least sufficient to
meet their expenses, and enable them to
maintain their families. The present sala
ries do not do this. It is a notorious fact that
the pittance allowed our Governor is insuffi
cient to meet even the expeLse of living, and
all who fill that station do it at a great pecu
niary sacrifice, and leave the office poorer
than they were when they took it.
The same may be said of the Supreme
and Circuit Judges. There is no man quali
fied for the Bench but what can make double
or treble the amount of the salary by the
practice of his profession, and if he accept
the station he does it at a positive and heavy
loss to himself. The highest judicial talent
ought to be secured for the Bench, and to
effect this a proportionate salary should be
allowed. The present system of beggarly
salaries will eventually drivo all talent from
the Bench, and leave it to tha occupany of
incompetent men, to tha great detriment of
the true interests as well as of the dignity
and respectability of the state.
This is a subject of vital importance to all
classes, and we call upon the press through
out the state to speak out in reference to the

Just like that bubble, or that feather, or that

of the whole civilized world at this moment.

Fifteen years ago, and Miller the Prophet,
or the interpreter of prophecy, was dreaming
that the Millenium was about to dawn. Now
it seems, instead, as if Satan wore about to

and men seemed nnivursally aboit to beat
their swords into ploughshares. But tow the

about to fight a pitched battle in the heart of
India, decisive cf the fate of a larger portion
of the world, than that which followed the
fate of all Alexander's battles. Europe hav
ing wasted half a million of men and hun
dreds of millions of dollars in one war, seems
in greater unrest than ever. Turkey, where
the war began, is worse off as to debt, as to
independence and as to territory than before
the war began. While the other great pow
ers have been fighting for the Principalities,
Austria holds the stakes, and, like the mon
key with the cheese, chews it up, while the
others quarrel.
It used to be thought that the nve great
powers had the control, at least, of Europe,
and yet little King Bomba laughs at them all,
England and France included. .The fact is,
there is not one of the great powers that has
the control of anything just now, or that know
on what side they will be in a month hence
on any great question. Take England: Does
she know whether or not she is drifting again
into a war with Russia? She has no idea.
Can she tell what will be her relations with
Austria, or what with France? Not at tJL
Nor is there a Frenchman who knows where
France will be in a month hence whether
in the arms of Russia against England, or
with England against Russia. It used to be
thought that all depended on the will of one
man, Louis Napoleon; and yet it seems that
no sooner is his back turned than his minis

The Pocket" Mr. Bright.
We copy the following extract frem a let
ter to the Evansville Enquirer, from a demo
cratic citizen of "the Pocket," temporarily so
journing at Washington, with great pleasure.
The compliment to Senator Bright, we hear

old guard of the First district" are disposed
to "hold fast to" him. This is all that is
needed to render his re-election to the United

But, the question arises, what is all that
fuss about down in " the Pocket?" If the ,
"Old Guard of the Firet district hold fast to
Senator Bright," and the balance of the State
concur, why all this cry about injustice to "the
Pocket?' Does the Enquirer want two Sen
ators from the "two Pocket districts?" or
what does it want? We confess we are at a
loss as yet to discover just what our friends
"down south" are driving at, so far as Sena
tors are concerned. But here is the extract :
I am asked a dozen times almost every
day, "Will Mr. Bright be returned to the

"Yes," without knowing the feeling outside
