We OCCUpy OUT columns to day with the meat maternal portien of Mr. Mangum'a speech, delivered ia the U. S. Senate a few days ago. It will be found ex ccedingly interesting, and will, no doubt re ccive the careful perusal of the honest of all parties. CQ" We see by the Democrat of yesterday that the citizens of Perry Township have ten- dered Gza. Lash a public dinner, which has .ti Th..i;nn.r -;?t t , . -.ei . r n COmW learn (torn the Louisville Journal that an affray occurred at the Exchange Hotel in that city on Saturday night last, in which a man named Robert Morrison, from Fayette county, who had been a sergeant in Capt. Cox's company, ThirJ Kentucky regiment, but late ly a clerk to Gen. Marshall, was dangerously wounded by a pistol shot fired by Lieutenant Shackleford, of Capt. Hardin's company, 4th Kentucky regiment. Lieut S. is from Wash ington county. The ball passed through Morrison's lungs, and although he was still live last night, it is feared that he cannot survive. We hare heard various statements as to the cause of the affray, but we do not think it ad visable to publish them. Shackleford is in jail, and the case will probably be brought up for examination before the police court this morn Cam aud his Lives. Here is a paragraph thai has certainly escaped the notice of the Democrat, else we should see it paraded in its columns as an evidence of Gen. Cass' great pop ularity. The National Intelligence says that fcix different lives of Gen. Ca&s have been pub lished in Washington city. The last is iu Ger man, and the Intelligencer gives this trausla tionoi a passage on the twelfth page: The eeuUof the election of 1841 is well known.

In Senate, July 3, 1843. We have been taunted with supporting a candidate who has no opinions on the subject, or, at least, without knowing what his opin ions are. 1 meet that taunt by showing that Gen. Cass stands exactly nowhere uion the subject; and although our Southern friends are flattering theraselvea with the idea that we are to get a President who is not hostile to the South, they are. in point of fact, laboring under a delusion. Mr. Lass has not committed him self at all upon this question. - But Gen. Cass stands not only upon his Nicholson letter, but also upon the ''platform" of the Democratic party, as laid uown py me uaiumore uonven l l t a .a 1 . n tion. Let us examine that and Gen. Casa'a connection with it to ascertain whether any' thing appears there to extricate him from mys ticism. In the first place I will read from Mr. Cass's letter ol acceptance, to show that all the dog mas and canons ol his party, as set lortn in that platform, are by him lully and unre servedly recognized and adopted. He says: "I hare carelully read the resolutions ot the Denied a tic National Convention, laying down the platform of our political faith, and 1 ad here to them as firmly as I approve them cor dially." Now let us see what this platform is. It may wun sumcieni accuracy lor au practica ipur poses, De relerred to three classes: 1st. Athrin ations, that nobody denies: 2d: Negations, that no one controverts; 3d: Resolutions and decla rations that no one be lie Tea. 1 will read the seventh canon. It is in these words: That Congress has no power under the con stitution to interfere with or control the do mestic institution of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the constitution; that all ef forth of abolitionists and others made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery or to take incipient steps iu relation thereto. are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences: and that all such ef forts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend o our political institutions. It will be remembered that this Is a precise copy oi the canon ol löH, and that again o tha canon of 1840. The Democratic party has proiessed steadily and consistently lor eight years the principles contained in this canon One reads this canon with a sort of admiration It is so precise to explicit -so peculiar to the party: And then it is so catholic, so national so conservative, so patriotic: Lap, any one wno lores nis country leei less than respect and gratitude to the Democratic party, which spreads so broad a shield over the domestic in- Istituiiona of the South? Why cannot the Whig part cherish like comprehensive pat iriousmf Why leave to the De mo Vhy leave to the Democratic nartv the exclusive merit of euardinz our Southern hearths and firesides of protecting the weaker sex or sleeping Infancy in the silent watch es oi ine night trom the torch of the incendia rv and the knife of the aasassin? Whtrnnnnt the Whigs come and stand upon this platform? ine xemocraiic answer is ready. II is our ground, not Whig ground, it is . a part of the pure ueinocracyj it is ours, wnouy ours, exclu sively ours, and peculiar to us and to our creed. Lier us see. I find in the journal of the House' of Repre sentatives of the first session of the 5Sth Con gress, page 476, that Mr. Campbell, on the -iGih February, 1843. moved the following res olutions: Resolved, That justice and sound policy for- uiu uie rcuerai uovemmenl to luster one branch of industry to the detriment of another! or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common coun try; that every citizen and every section of the country has a right to demand and insist upon n equality oi rignts and privileges, aud to a complete and ample protection of persons and i"wr7 iwui uwuicanc violence or loreignag grcssiou. "Resolved, That Congress has no power, un der the constitution, to interfere wiih or con trol the domestic institutions of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges ol everything appertaining to their own aflairs, not prohibited by the consti tution; that all efforts of the abolitionists or others, rnade to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps ;u feiayon tnereto, are calculated to lead to me äst atarnriDg au dangerous conse quences. and that all such efforts hare an ine vitable tendency to diminish the happiness of auu cjmaiiger tae siaoiuty and per manency of the Union, and ought not to be wuuieuautcu yj fifj rcuu oi ou,r cguucai i& stitu lions. . r i ... l I r i -r r ' w i it win be pexceiyed that $e$e Resolutions oic lucuncai, wuru i or worn witu me iourtn and seventh canons of this vaunted Democratic platform; that the first resolution which is identical with the fourth canon, contains the peculiar doctrine of the Democratic oartv on the subject of "black and abominable tariffs;" aim ii contains tue whole or their doctrine, which they boast as theirs exclusively. The resolutions were divided, and the rote was ta ken upon the first part of the first resolution, in the words following: e ,Thal iulice anJ ounJ policy forbid the federal government to foster one branch of industry to the detriment of another or to cherish the interests of one portion to the iujury of another portion of our common coun try." What do you suppose, Mr. President, was lucvoic on mis question? You suppose, of course, mat none but Democrats voted for it. It being a part of the fourth canon of the Dem ocratic platform, is therefore peculiar to the party. But the journal tells a different tale. The vote stood yeas 160, nays 4. The entire nig party, with the exception of four, voting for this exclusive Democratic doc trine. The question waa then put on the remainder vi mc mat rrauiution in iQese word. That every citizen of erery section of the country has a right to demand and insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to a complete and ample protection of person and property from domestic violence or foreign ag gression." Upon this question, this exclusive Demo cratic doctrine, strange to tell, the rote was unanimousTryeas 172, nays00. So much fat thia resolution. Does not every one see thor it is couched in terms so general, so inexact, so unspecific, that no oiie cau find ground for disagreement? This, perhaps, should excite the surprise of no one. A party so progres sive, so lull ol change, so perpetually toss ed on the waves of excitement and olfaction ought to leave themsf Insufficient "sea-room. It is provident, as being politic: it is commen dable. Let me return to the next resolution and the seventh canon of the platform. The qaestion then recurred on the hrst clause of the second resolution, in these words: Re9olveJy That Congress has no power un der the constitution lo interfere with or con trol the domestic institutions of the several States, and that such States are the sole and proper judges ofeve.ythine appertaining to their own affairs not prohibited by the consti tution." .This clause passed by a vote of 151' yeas to 2 nays. 1 find that Messrs. Giddtngs, John 1. lale. Preston King, and every other ivortnern man save two, voted for this clause of the can on set forth in the Democratic platform, as be ing of such potency to protect and preserve the slave institutions of the South. The question was then put ou the remainder of the resolution in these words: "That all efforts of the abolitionists or others made to induce Congress to interfere with que tioM of elate ri. or. to take incipient step in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the . w . .a most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that an sucn enorts nave an ineviiaDie a 11 a a tendency to diminish the happiness of the peo- pie, and endanger ine staDiiuy and perma a ,a . a w nency ot the Union, and ought not to be coun- tenanced oy any mend 01 our political instiiu Hons. This clause also passed yeas 123, nays 29, by Uie rote of the great mass of the Whig par ty, and so little was this regarded as anything peculiar and exclusive, and so unmeaning was . 1 lit . f a 1 . L it aeemeu mat a unu among ine veas tue names ui John P. Hale, Preston King, as well as others, Whigs and Democrats, that are known to en tertain feelings of deeD hostility to the institu tions of slavery. If such be the merits of the Democratic platform upon the two great questions, the tariffand slavery, its value up on minor questions may easuy oe estimated. I return to General Cass and the Wilmot pro viso. The "Nicholson letter leaves us in the dark. The platform holds nothing to aid us. The Senator from Mississippi stands mute or speaks in oracles as unintelligible and as in comprehensible as are the opinions of General Cass himself. Embarrassed as 1 am, and ui terly at a loss how further to proceed in these I.?. 1 iir 1 nituer to unavailing inquiries it is oareiy pos sible that I hold in my band what may show that I am engaged in a wild goose chase, tha lam in search of the philosopher's stone, that I am vainly attempting to grasp an evanescent shadow -in short, that 1 1 m looking for an opinion where none exists, or if it exists, it lies bidden in the deep, dark, and silent recesses of the mind that formed it. It is a very curious thing that 1 am about to present to our friend of the Democratic party. Mr. President, do you recollect anything of. the "Kane letter?" The fruits ef that letter were so perfectly mira aculous the electing of a man who in his wildest mood had never dreamed of such eleva tion over the head of the foremost man of the age I say, such were the fruits, that a bold reckless, sagacious, I will not say unscrupu lous party, would not be likely to abstaiu from the use of like means, when working heart and soul lor a like result. No, sir. Here is a sec ond edition of the "Kane" principle. I hoi in one hand "A sketch of the life and public seivices of Gen Lewis Cass." I hold in the other "A sketch of the life and public services 01 uen. ajcwis vass. Mr. Foote. Where were thev nublished? Mr. Mangum.. They were published in the Congressional Ulobe omce, Jackson Hall D.C. Mr. Foote. Will the Senator infor me where he obtained them? Mr. Mangum. It is sufficient that I have them. The Globe office will not dare deny their publication there: their types speak the truth, and, if needs be, there is other evidence at hand. One of the pamphlets has written up on it "North," and the other "South." One is evidently designed for a northern latitude and the other for a southern. The one. as 1 suppose, designed for the North, contains on the last page an eloquent outburst of Mr. Cass on tue Aiex ican war, in repiy to some poor remarks of mine. I will not detain the Senate by reading them, as we have all been thrilled and electrified by reading them heretofore. It contains also on the same page a long extract from a speech delivered by Mr. Cass at Odd Fellows Hall, in this city, at a meeting held to express the sympathies of the American peo ple with the people of France upon the result of the late French revolution. It also has on the same page an account of Mr. Cass's nomi nation for the Presidency, with some remarks upon his qualifications, public services, his age, his virtues, and his manners, but not one wordon the "Wilmot proviso. The other pamphlet, designed, as I suppose, for the South, lias ou the last page the same remarks by Mr. Cass in reply to me, nothing upon the subject of the French revolution. But the "Wilmot proviso" and his opinions upon it are strongly and impressively noted by the biographer. The pamphlets are in all other respects, as far as I nave been able to see, identical, precisely aiiae, a wjij jeau wnai isiouna m ints pam rhlet lor the feouth on the " Wilmot I is as follows: proviso. "In December, 1817, Gen. Cass gave bis views at lengtn on ine umoi proviso, in 1 letter to Mr. Nicholson, of Tennessee. In tha letter he avowed himself opposed to the meas ure, and to the exercise of any legislation by Congress over any of the territories of the Uni ted States respecting the domestic relations of their inhabitants. He believed that all ques tions of that nature should be settled by the people themselves, who ought to be allowed 'to regulate their internal concerns in their own way, and that Congress had no more pow er to abolish or establish slarery in such ter ritones man 11 nas 10 regulate any otner 01 me relative duties of social life that of husband and wife, of parent and child, or of master and servant, lie said, in conclusion: "The Wil mot proviso seeks to take from its legitimate tribunal a question of domestic policy, having no relation to the Uniou.as such, aqd IQ trans fer it to another, created by the people for a special nurpose, and forejgn to the subject ra&t- icr iutuitcu in mis issue, isy going back to our true principles, wc go back to the road of peace and saiety. Leave to the people, who III L . or a a a. -. win uc auectea oy iqiS question, to adjust it upon their own responsibility and in their own manner, and we shall render another trihnt to me original principles of our government, and furnish another guaranty for its permanence and prosperity " Mr. toote. Does the Senator charge that there isany repugnancy or conflicting princi ples in the two pamphlets? Mr. Mangum. Thev do not come in con flict; for one takes the road directly to the North, and the other the shortest cut for th South. Mr. Foote. Does the meaning conflict? Mr. Mangum. The meaning of the two i not at all coincident. They do not annroiim- ate each other on the "proviso:' there nn similitude on that subject; there is inauifest in congruity, and, I think, antagonism. Mr. Hanne gan. Will the Senator allow me two or three words? I trust the Senator will not, for one moment, suppose that either Gen. Cass or any friend of his would ever counten ance the publication of documents for one re gion of country different from those published lor another. 1 know not whence these docu ments proceded. nor by whose authority they were published, but I am authorized to assure the honorable Senator that the Congressional committee. aDoointed to prepare and publish documents, have nothing to do with anything . -. ... - .. ot the kind. Mr. Mangum. ' I am not at' all surprised at any sensibility that is exhibited by the Senator rom Indiana. I should feel it myself. Isut 1 have advanced no charge against Gen. Cass that he had any nartici pancy in any such me dilated fraud. I do know, however, that here is a plain, palpable case of mediated fraud, one of great enormity, seeking to mislead and delude the people upon matters of the highest delicacy and greatest importance to their inter esls. hile your jails and penitentiaries groan with culprits, convicted of "false pretences and frauds in trifling pecuniary matters, what ought to be done with the vile malefactor who by flagitious frauds like this, cheats the people not out of a few shillings, but out of their dear est rights, in matters touching . tht ir private happiness and the public prosperity. Here are the pamphlets, l hand them over to the gentlemen to examine, hoping they may be able to investigate the fraud, tiace it to its source, drag the guilty culprit from his hiding place, a lid expose him and his infamy to the scorn, the hisses, and the contempt of the pub uc. f Note bvMr. Mangum. It is curious that a circumstance purely accidental led to a com plete detection and thorough exposure ol this audacious fraud. Mr. M. presented two nam phlet lives of Gen. Cass, identical, word for word alike, except on the eighth and laut page One of these: of the March edition, represent ed Gen. Cassou the last page as thoroughly op- posed to tue wumoi proviso. At mis point Mr. Hannegan interposed tor explanation, at the instance of two members of the Democrat ic committee, (Messrs. Bayly, of Virginia, and .n a I r a uodd, 01 ueorgia,) woo naa cnarge 01, and therefore, or were supposed 10 know, all the matter printed by the Democratic parly for public circulation. His explanation was, that it was proper to present Gen. Gass' views on the late French revolution, as well as other matter, in the June edition; that the pamphlet could not be extended beyond eight pages with out an increase of cost; that somelbimr had to be excluded, and in that way the "Wilmot proviso" matter was excluded from the June edition to make room for the new matter. When this explanation, lame, and unsatisfac tory as many deemed it. was about to have its proper effect, another" pamphlet was produced of tne June edition, containing on the last page the whole of the matter on the Wilmot proviso? The exposure was complete. It was now apparent that the explanation entire it iaiiea.anu iaai me juhc ca u ion naa iwo id a . .a ces one looking lovingly to the bouth, and the other with stern countenance to the North Mr. Hannegan abandoned the case, and in hi?1 scorn and detestation denounced the fraud aud its authors as unprincipled and villainous, but expressing his entire conviction that none c bis Congressional friends either knew or ha any agency in it. Well, sir, there was another question I ask ed the other day. 1 got no answer none that 1 could understand. 1 asked what were Mr Cass's views on the subject of internal improve mentr Mr. Hannegan. What are .Gen. Taylor' viewa on that subject f Mr. Mangum. Gen. Taylor will leave that subject to the wisdom and sound discretion of Congress; 1 propounded the interrogatory the other day to the Senator from Mississippi 'what would Uen. lass do with the river and harbor bill? I suppose Mr. Cass is in quite a dilem ma, I believe he has uniformly voted for al the internal improvement bills? He certainly voted for that harbor bill which met Mr. Polk s veto. But then he was free he was not in chains he bad not voluntarily assumed the fetters of the Baltimore platform. Whatwoul he do now with that bill; or, rather, whatcouh! he do? In the platform I find the followiug canon : inai ine constitution noes not cooler on the General Government the power to com me nee and carry on a general system of inter nal improvement." Tliis, like the restof that inimitable platform is quite general ana uuennue enough, hut, uutortunately for Mr. Cass, Mr. Polk, who gave in his adhesion to this article, has given . . a . . nis exposition 01 11 oy vetoing the harbor bill that Mr. Polk voted for. Notwithstanding great and extensive clamor against Mr. Polk's veto, the Baltimore convention readopted this canon, and approved by resolution Mr. Polk's conduct. Mr. Cass has given in his adhesion to this creed; and now what can he do? Of course, in likecase,exactlv whatMr.PoIkdid. 1 trust this is not a case where Mr. Cass, by vir tue of his former rotes, is . to stand in the North aud ou the lakes as an interual improve ment, and in the South, particularly in the An cient Dominion ,is a straight-laced 98 and '99 man out and out againstall internal improve ments bv the General Government. In decen cy 1 feel bound to suppose that Mr. Cass will adhere to the pnuciples of the platform; and, where they are a little Delphic, lht contem poraneous expositioqs will be his guides. So, if this "wave of opinion" is hard frozen, and shall never thaw under the sun of popularity or the wooings of soft breezes, coming up the great Mississippi and its tributaries, we may set down Mr. Cass as against river and lake harbor improvements. The Senator from Mississippi has drawn j strong and vi red mcture of the eminent abili ties, the large attainments, and thorough ac complish ments of Gen. Cass iu all things per taining to public affairsof his steadiness, his perseverance, his manliness, his independence ol power his singleness and frankness-con cealing no opinion giving no conflicting as surances his fearlessness, as a statesman, of popular clamor and his abhorrence of being elevated to high station by management, dex ferity, or in any other way, than upon a full in spection and consideration of eyery act, senti ment, principle, or inclination of his mind. This picture is presented in contrast with that of Gen. Taylor and thjs letter exhibits Gen. Taylor as utterly ignorant as having no ma ture opinions on public affairs, a mere soldier as an eouivocator exhibiting wondrous va rietv as to the substance of his opinions as having flooded the country with electioneering let'ers as a mere epistolary driviller filling his friends with regret, and his enemies with commiseration as writing "long, verbose and meaningless letters, lull ol laise grammar, con fused ideas, and the most rude aud unpolished m a .a a nonsense. in snort, tne suostance 01 what the Senator said, is, that Gen. Taylor is an ig norant, equivocating, electioneering character having no opinions; or, if he have, withhold ing them, and taking the benefit of connoting and false interpretations or what is the Mine j thing, being "art and part" in a fraud sought to 1 be played off upon the people of the United Statesi. What shaÜ I say of this portraitof Gen. Tay- or? Would his children recoVnise it? No. sir; no. ihey migni loon upon it as the pic ture of a low, vulgar, ragamuffin deserter, who had just returned from the wars. . Sir, this studied disparagemeut of Gen. Tay or need not and ought not to eicite a feeling of indignation. The ravings of despair are ob jects of commiseration, not of resentment. f hev can do no harm. The people of this countiy have sense, they have . uegacity, they have iudgment. They are belter judges of men and the worth of men, as I verily believe, than even this Senate. I mean uo disparagement ot this body, which tor talent, virtue, and pat notism inav not shriuk from a comparison with any other. But 1 mean th people live, move, and have their being in a clear, pure, and calm atmosphere, no cliques, no passions, no prejudices, uo artificial standards, no per sonal interests, strong as we have to bias and thwart strong, sound, plain, common sense. No, sir, this studied 1 must think ungener ous disparagement, can do no harm, i have no purpose to eulogise Iren. Taylor. It would be as offensive to his simple tastes and delicate sense of self-respect as it would be unbefitting me. Iam not, by nature, strung and tuned to give out the music of eulogy and encomium to - - V A a men iu power. Aiisnoi my we nt to me 11 would be a new vocatiou. Sir 1 leave him in his simple dignity aud grandeur of character "when unadorned adorned the most. would you have the Venus de Medici furbelowed and flounced in the tinsilled finery of modern millenery? Would you have the statue of Hercules crowned with a tawdry cap and fea ther? Would you have me weave garlands for the pinnacles of the sierra Maure, thai lift their heads and bathe their naked brows 111 the sun light far above the region of the clouds? Giv en down to immortality as they ure In history. in poetry, and in song, by the associated clor ries of the hero of Monterey and Buena Vista, I leave them ill their simple gtandeur.

His expansive views looking to the whole country as his country, and every part of the country as his part of the country knowing no partisan cliques or mere section al interests rlanting himself upou the const! tution and the whole constitution, and serving the people and the whole people. All this the people knew well. Sir, I shall support Gen. Taylor and suppor him cordially, as the true representative of al the great conservative characteristics of the Whig parly. 1 shall support him as a man 0 peace as opposed lo all wars of conquest as opposed to that rapacious policy that wouul Pick a quarrel with a neighbor and then seize his goods. I support him for his sound con stitutional views in regard to the relative du ties of the respective department of the gov ernment. King veto will not be put in chains bat confined to his proper sphere. He will mt be permitted, as a marauder, to make for ays upon every departmU of the government and upon every public Wf private interest. I support him also because I believe he will suf fer the will of the people to become the law of the people within constitutional limits: be lieve that things that lie before us in the un known future may be of vastly more magnitude man an me transient party questions 01 tne day; ia wa and ueca use 1 nave conhdeiice in his modera tion and good sense above all, in his modera tion and right-mindedness. If I have learned anything in public life, it is that pure inten tions and single-mindedness, with strong coix sense, are worth more than the most splendid abilities and the largest experience without them. GTT'The anderburgh Democrat reviles Gen. Taylor for not giving publicity to the de cision 01 ine Uourt ol Inquiry, in reference to the retreat ot the 2d Indiana Kesinicnt. when the truth is, Gen. Taylor says that he has never been othcialiy advised of that decision. The Democrat states that Gen. Tavlor would have seen by that decision, "that Col. Bowles, who gave the order to retreat, and then, to shield himself, denied it, was alone the euilty co war a. M " Gen- Taylor would have seen no such thins. for there was no such thing iu the decision of the Court of Inquiry. If the locofoco papers could gei any whig to bring the charge of cow ardice against either the ofheers or volunteers of the Indiana brigade, they would be satisfied. iiutthey stand alone in making this infamous charge.
