His ruling ides is. that Slavery must be abolished by the laws of labor. Ha ssyi that the .laws of free labor and of Slavery are antagonistic, and cannot ex ist side by side. One mnst eventually crush the other out ; and either free labor will eventually gain the ascendancy throughout the entire Union, or else every State will become a Slave State. lie is confident that free labor will gain the vic tory. He does not propose to accomplish this by Congressional intervention, nor by force, but wholly in the manner above stated. "What is there in this, to raise such a howl over ? - Senator Hammond, of South Carolina, has also lately made a speech to his con stituents, which, although containing the usual amount of Southern braggadocio, was by no means fire-eating or disunion. He thinks there is a slim chance for any more Slave States to be made out of our Territories ; is opposed to annexing Mex ico or Central America, for the purpose of carving out Slave States; snd has no idea of annexing Cuba. He says the North and the world could not do with out the South, and she would prosper as A Republic separate from the North; but he is not in favor of a separation, as long as the rights of the South are respected. He desires the South to endeavor to con ciliate the North, and to make good nse of what Territory she already has. She has vast room or improvement there, and by energy and industry, a bright. future awaits her. j All he desires is, that the rights of the South should be respected by-the North, and by Congress; and he thinks that they will be by the latter. In this connection he makes a significant declaration, which is strictly true, how ever little the fact may be relished in the North. He ssys that the South has heretofore controlled the Federal Govern ment, and all will go on well as long as she continues to do so. He has confi dence that she wQl, because the President and his Cabinet, the United Slates Sen ate, and the Supreme Court, are all firm ly bound to that end 1 Thk'Axkricas Mosthlt'.

Governors : Lnt now, for the first time, she has a classical Chief Magis trale one whose history has been cele brated both in song snd story. The very name of Medary is sufficient to call up stirring memories of the past scenes which have employed the graphic pen of the annalist of the day, and inspired the poet's muse. Such has been the case with our new Governor,' Ssm Medary ; or, as he is euphoniously termed in Ohio, -Sammedary!" In the minds of the old residenters in the good old State above mentioned, the asms of Medary is insuperably associated with office : for there was never one of thst name known in Ohio, who wss not an inveterate office-seeker, and generally an office-holder not by the suffipgcs of the people, for the great masses conld never sufficiently appreciate the superior claims snd qualifications of the Medary family for that ; but pensioned appointees of a National or State Administration, or a J . pammeaary, lue aisungmaneu buujocii under consideration, tome years since flourished among tbe hills of Clermont County, where ho followed the modest calling of editing -the Clermont Sun, at Batavia. Cut he had ambition, and de termined to get in a position where he could view a more extended scope of country. We have' said that a Medary never received office at the hands of the people. We recall it, and state that the people did npon one occasion bestow of fice upon a member of the Medary family; and to this circumstance the family are indebted for their" long snd affectionate hold npon the public teat. Clermont County was overwhelmingly Democratic, and sometime between the Presidential campaigns of 18S6 and 1840, they elected Sam to the Ohio Legislature. From that date, the Clermont Son lost ita father, and Clermont County a Medary Sam medary. For an account of the won derful doings of Sammedsry, for several years after the foregoing ercnt, we are indebted to a favorite little work which we long ago salted down among ocr cherished relics of the past. It is the only authentic history now extant, of the illustrious Sam and here, we may add, was the first instance of his fame being celebrated in song ; for the history we speak of, was composed entirely of song. We refer to the Tippccsnoe Songster," which our mother purchased of a peddler. for our especial gratification, paying there for, a levy, or "long bit," as it was some times called, and was known further West as a "bit," and further East, as a shilling, the commercial value of which was 2 cents. So that our readers will perceive that the materials for this biog raphy have not been procured without ex pense. But who cares for expenses, when they further an object of such vital mo ment? The story is told in a song set to the musical and time-honored tune of "Cork Leg," and commences thus : MH ling jroe a M withost Bay Sua : 1r Ohio there lirea1 toga nlM Baaa, -Wbo err Burning Mi 4, "I am . ' . Tbe j rtateet nucal of all tee eTac,' . r . Ri lo, ral la," keV " This, was -while he yet Jived down among the hills of Clernrbnt. Tbe song goes to state that - "Pubis iBarrhw be mfy, tad tloriw oil tell, Wkiek pVnti kit Loco kratim mil.' It so pleased them, that they sent him to the Legislature. It appears that the parties in the Legislature were so nearly equally divided, that some pretty hard wire-pulling had to be done, to carry out favorite party measures. The Democrats had about one majority. This party, by hard work, succeeded in creating a new office, to he filled by Legislative appoint ment that of Trinter of State. Medary was one of its principal champions a disinterested one, of course ; for another trait of the Medary family, is never to do a thing from motives of self-interest. The project was successful ; and then arose another difficulty. A printer must be chosen, and both parties determined to do their best lo elect their candidate. Samincdary chanced to be nominated by the Democratic caucus how, we knew not, but presume that his friends forced it npon him 1 When the election came np, the battle was hot ; but 8 am medary was elected by a majority of one vote that rote was cast by a member from Clermont County, by the name of Medary! We are constrained to believe that he vo ted thus, only to keep the office ont of the hands of the rascally Whigs ! The song thus tells about it : . "Now, Saanay So weat.aa' hata early aa4 bua, ' , To eaow ate aaaple Ma kataraf wee fraat ; . Aad eeea aa sSVe he H aetata, AsS J hie swa wle wae Fiiatre af Ptaia, t Hi ta, ral la." Ike. Sam wss now in clover. He purchas ed himself a printing office,- and settled down in Columbus, at the same time starting a newspaper, called the Ohio Statesman. And now he met with temp tation, and commenced a career of dis honesty. ''The State purchased the paper for the public printing. The outside quires of each bundlef psper, are called raise fuiret. . They are usually slightly soiled, amLaometimes psper a little infe rior hi quality is used for this. purpose. Now, Sam had no idea of putting infe rior material in work for which he was well paid, so be generously appropriated the caste purii to the nse of Sammedsrj, in printinthe Ohio Statesman. It seems that his friends were so pleased with his doings, that they wanted to give him soma higher ipffice ; tut lie'.ivasL perfectly con-' tented (or the time being, and declined the intended honor. His reason therefor, js thus hinted at, in the song ; . - Sw, Faj h4 root-too his haatrt arm?. Bat hu friHai iWt were that he ahoaM fo higher ; 0 BteaeTBrlirrhedie'eata'ane, ' fir there he weald Sad bo cam eair?, Kita,rrJra,fce. Ssm did highly unwrong, to steal the public paper. . WTe here .pledge ourself. before-hand, that when Kansas becomes a State, and we are elected Public Print er, we will not steal any paper. The catu cruirti, and soiled paper, we will use for printing the Governor's messages ! From the year 1840, to 1845, embra cing two of the most memorable Presi' dential campaigns, Sam devoted his time principally to lying and slander. . His slanders upon the character of General Harrison and Henry Clay, if re produced now, would bring a blush of shame npon the face of the most violent enemy these great and good men aver had. . ne at tained the reputation of being tbe greatest living liar, and was thus known both at home and abroad. Tbe blasphemous ex pression, "you lie like the Devil !' was for a time changed to "you lio like Sam Medary 1" This brings ns again to the documents. We do not now qnote from the Songster, but from one of the reliable newspapers of 1840, which we have pre served. To show the estimation in which Sam was held, at home, at that time, we will give a yarn, in the shape of a dream, related at a gatheringin the Miami Val ley, by the famous Whig stumper, John W. User, known as the "Buckeye Black smith." Here is the story : BAEa s VISIOX. Mr. Baer said he attended the Whig Convention at Columbus on the 22nd of February. On his retnrn home in com pany with several delegates, much diffi culty and danger was met with in cross ing Big Walnnt Creek in consequence of its being much swollen by a heavy fall of rain. . They succeeded, however, after swimming their horses a considerable dis tance, in passing the stream and arrived safe home. After retiring to rest he lay some time contemplating the dangers he had escaped, and his providential deliv erance from a watery grave. While thns reflecting he insensibly sunk into a quiet sleep. As he slept he dreamed that he had been drowned in tbe creek and went direct to Hell. After a formal admittance into the dark abode of sorrow and woe, he was ushered into the immediate pres ence of his Satanic Majesty, who wss seated in a large armed chair in the cen tre of his vast domain having in atten dance legions of his rebellious associates with an innumerable company of tbe unfortunate sons of fallen Adam, doomed to interminable servitude, pain, and an guish in those dreary regions of fire and smoke; when the following dialogue took place: Devil. ell, sir, where are yon from and how came yon here ? Baer. 1 am, sir, from that portion ol the planet earth, called the state of Ohio. Itetnrninir home, at evening. Horn toe great Whig Convention held at the cap ital of the said division of earthly territo ry, on the 22d of February, I was drown ed in Big Walnnt Creek ; from thence I came directly here. . JJevil. Ah, yon were at the Wing Convention, then ! ' , Batr. Yes, sir. Devil. Were there many in attend ance, and how did they get along ? Baer. O, yes. The greatest assembly I ever saw. The face of the country waa literally hid by the moving mass of peo ple, Log Cabins, canoes, ships, steam boats, canal boats, forts, wagons, horse men, footmen, dec. The air was filled with banners, and every door and window crowded with ladies waving Mugs and handkerchiefs rending the air with shouts and buzzes for Harrison and their country. The greatest harmony prevail ed they were like band of brothers. Demi. I am really sorry to bear that if the Whigs remain nnited, Van Bu- ren will be defeated and we ruined ; for it is from his party we get our greatest support. A disunion mnst be effected by lying, misrepresentation, or any other means that shall soonest accomplish the end. ( Then celling three or four of his little devils to him said.) Yon must go immediately to Columbus and scatter the seeds of disaffection and discord among the Whigs, or Harrison will be elected President and our party ruined. (And they departed.) Is my old friend, Sam Medary, there yet ? Baer. Yes, sir. Devil. What is he doing ? Baer.O, he is doing all that is pos sible for men f o lb. He is writing, lying, calumniating, slandering, and circulating Statosmsns, and stops at nothing for his party. . Der3.-AU is then safe. (And turn ing his face towards Columbus, called aloud to the little devils, ) Come back yon need not go Sam Medary is there, and As can out-ite all ih$ dttut ta am I About the year 1842, Sam got the wrong swine by the ear. In . that year, the Democrats "Gerrymandered" the State, in the apportionment for Congress ional Districts, and the Whigs left the Legislature, and went home in disgust. Bob Schcnck waa a member from Mont gomery County, and was a huge thorn in the flesh of the Democrats. ' Medary pour ed oat his abuse upon Bob without stint, but to no effect. . He then .indulged in indiscriminate abuse of the entire Schenck family, even meddling in their family and private affairs, A brother of Bob could not stand it, so he made a journey to Columbus, met Sammedary on the street, and gave him a most terrible whip ping. It it even said that he had sworn to cot off Sam's ears, and waa-about ful filling his oath, when the bystanders in-h tenered, and prevented it. la 1844, tbe Whigs gained the ascen dancy in the Legislature, and shortly elec ted a State Printer of their own political! faith. This was a severe blow to Bam. It took the public plunder beyond his reacb7ad cut off his supplies , of catu quirt f and I he soon sold out hjf Statesman I establishment, to seek for 77 " nothcr j chanuel. In the yrarlS46.(we believe.) tk Tiom.1. .nminated him for Con gres's, in the Colurabos District ; bnt, al though the District wss usually Demo cratic, he was bsdly beaten. After beinf out of the Sutesmsn office a year or two, he went into it sgain. Sometime about that reriod. his brother, Jacob Medary. who was Postmaster at Columbus, died, and Sara was appointed lo fill his plsce. Several attempts were also made, to secure him the nomination of Governor and T.uilmant Onvernnr of Ohio, hut he could never make the riffle.' He sev eral times quitted the Statesman office, and went back to it again ; for there waa no man who could do the dirty work of the Democratic party in Ohio, so well as Medary. . . ; When Pierce- took the Presidential rhair, he appointed Sam to some mission in South America, which the latter de clined. Here, after all, we have an in stance, and the only one, in which a Me dary refused office. What his reasons were for so' doing, remain a profound mystery ; but the probability is, that he wu expecting something higher, and re fused the appointment out of pure spite. When Buchanan came into power, ho bestowed npon Sam the Governorship of Minnesota., In that position, he succeeded so well in perpetrating election frands, and carrying everything in favor of the Democrats, that Buchanan was supreme ly delighted ; and when Minnesota waa admitted as a State, he gave Sam the ('olnmbns Post Offico, (turning out a Democrat for the purpose,) until he could nun nuuwifr i'ibitz lur mm. xw tjaui, .1 i . r 1 : rr c n-hilo he occupied this post, was confided the duty of bullyragging the Ohio States man, (edited by his son-in-law,) and cer tain promiuent Democrats, into acquies cence in the English Swindle, and carry ing Ohio for Lecompton. In the first matter he succeeded, but in the latter be failed. He saved "Sundown" Cox'a ba con, and that was all. The Governorship of Kansas being vacant, the President gave it to Sammedary, and re-appointed the Columbus Postmaster, who had been removed for Sam't benefit, and who po sillanimonsly crept back to it. Bochanan no doubt looks to Sam to come the Min nesota touch upon Kansas, and swindle her in as a Democrstic Slave State, which we may look for him to attempt. But he will find a different stripe of people here, from those of Minnesota ; and if he suc ceeds in chiselling them, he will have ac complished what no other man has been able to do. He may disappoint the ex pectations of the people,' and conduct himself in a creditable manner, bnt that can hardly be expected. Oxford, KicW poo and Delaware Crossing frauds will receive no rebuke nor investigation from him. Such frauds will be his delight, and his chief aim will be to obey the be hests of his masters, at Washington. If he acta differently, he will widely depart from all his former antecedents. Such is tho new Governor of Kansas. Dnring his whole political life, he has never consulted the interests of the people, but his only idea was Democracy. Noth ing has been too monstrous for his coun tenance and snpport, if it was a Demo cratic scheme. Whatever the Democratic leaders dictated, that unsupported and lied fdr, without asking a question. From such a nisn, what good can honest people la Kansas expect at his hands? At he has heretofore been, so we may expect him to continue during the remainder of his life a dirty tool of the Democratic Prt7v . tW From the St. Louis Republican, of November 25th, we learn that Major Thomas L. Harris, member of Congress from tbe Springfield District, in Illinois, died at hit residence, in Petersburg, Me nard County; at 6 o'clock, on Wednes day morning, November 24th. Mr. Har ris was one of the Democrats who resist ed Lecompton to the last He was in ill health a greater part of the time, during the last session of Congress, and was car ried from his sick bed to the Capitol, to vote t gainst Lecompton, on the final vote.

Test The following we take from the speech j of John W. Forney, at Camden, of Oc tober 27th. In regard to this matter of making a . i . . letter ol a very remarsaoie character, i bearing with peculiar significance upon present politics. Dnring Mr. Buchanan's absence, as I have said, tlie Missouri compromise had been repealed. The insne in the Democratic party was adherence to the principle of popular sovereignty. The Democratic members of Congress, at the beginning of the session which witnessed the exciting content, resulting in the election of Mr. Bsnks as Speaker, held a caucus in which they laid down adherence to the principle of the Kansas Nebraska bill. Mr. Buchanan was absent. He began to grow stronger and stronger ss tbe Democrstic csndnlate lor the f res idency ; and it was necessary that ne shonld spesk ont in this issne. He accor dingly wrote a letter to air. Jelin Miuell, dated London, December Zotu, This letter Mr. Slidell held in his pock et nntil some time in April, 1856, when it became necessary, before the N ational Convention met that Mr. Buchanan's sentiments should be known. The letter wss then published in the Washington Union and copied in all papers. It is a curiosity of its soil, and applies to the present day with a significance almost prophetic. He says : "The question has been settled by Con gress ; and thia settlement should be in flexibly maintained." What settlement"? The settlement that the principle of popular sovereignty should take the place of Congressional intervention. He ssys also : "The Missouri Com promise is cone, and gone forever. But no ssssult should bo made on those Dem ocrats who maintained it provided they are now willing in good faith to maintain the settlement as it exista. Such an un derstanding ia wise and just :n itself." " He wss afraid that because ho had been for tbe Missouri line, a test wonld be mode upon him at Cincinnati ; there fore no Democrat was to be put out of the party because he had been in favor of that line I Now, what do we see this gentleman doing, who was so anxious that no test should be made by the Democratic party upon hit t We see him doing that which Louis Napoleon himself wonld be asham ed to do doing that which, nader any civilized Government on tbe face of the earth but ours, (a Government of law and order,) would create a revolution doing that which, if the historian had ven tured to prophesy fifty years ago, ha wonld have been cenaigaed to tbe mad house. We see the President of the United States, with a hundred millions of patronage, standing up before the people, with a sword drawn (so to spesk.) putting to death every man who will not come for ward and say that the principle of the Revolution, the principle of tbe declara tion of Independence, is a falsehood who will not with him, desert that great principle who will not say that he did right when he did wrong. Thit gentle man who, in 1855, begged that no test should bo made upon him on account of bit having been in favor of a certain law of Congress what does ho do aow ?
