Bajf Senator Fitzpatrick, of Alabama, has written a letter, in which he states that he gave peremptory instructions to his friends not to allow his name to go am the ticket with Douglas for the Vice Presidency. So "hard up" were the Squatters for a Vice Presidential candidate from the South, to ' Kive their ticket tbe appearance of nation- ality, that they put Mr. F.'s name on against his will, and were subjected to the mortifi cation of having to take it off. They then stultified themselves further by putting on tbe name of Herschell V. Johnson, a red hot fire-eater, slave-coder, and disunionist ! And this name they smuggled on "between two days," as if ashamed uf themselves. Mr. Fitzpatrick is now an nnlcut Hrcckin ridge maul We are reliably informed that Kgly, the Jesuit brought here by tbe Doug lasites to teach our people freedom an j popular sovereignty his peculiar kind did Dot venture to deny iu bis speeches here tbat be bad collected funds to send to the Pope to oppress the cause of Italian liberty. There must be some truth in tbc charge, judging from the llutter it creates. Egly's freedom aud popular sovereignty are as good as Douglas's. Tbe former's is the je suitieal kind; tbelatter's, is freedom quali fied by a sedition law, aud popular sove reignty qualified by Dred Seottism. In both cases, a barefaced cheat is attempted. a?"

This shows the estimation in which the " enllahed pusaon " 13 held by the Black Guards. In all the forty transparencies cur ried by the Black Guards on Saturday night, hearing over one hundred inscrip tions, the inevitable and eternal " nigger was almost the sole theme.

Sjieec-h of Eit-flovernor Dlion. At tbe Douglas meeting at the Upper Market House, last Saturday erening, af ter Mr. Eglj- had delivered a speech in Ger man, Ex-Gov. Dixon of Kentucky address ed the audience. His speech was mainly intended to show the impossibility of pre venting the spread of slavery. He an nounced the startling fact that slave labor could not be prevented from competing eve rywhere with free lalior; that slavery could not be confined; it was bound to expand, and you might ti well attempt to stay the cur rent of the Mississippi river as to keep slave ry within any specified bounds. He went on to state that the slave population of the South already numbered nbout 4,000,000, nnd was increasing with wonderful rapid ity. The South was even now cramp ed for room and must have an outlet. Whilst the slavet now numbered 4,000,000, bat few years would elapse before they would reach 20,000,000 if they continued to increase in the same ratio. Now here is a practical question for our 1 laboring men and mechanics. If 4,000,000 of slaves are already crowded for room in 15 slave States, containing as large an area of square miles u3 the entire free Slates ' which sustain a population of 18,000,000, i where is the ground to come trom to sup- j port Southerners, when tbeir slaves number ! 20,000,000 ? Gov. Dixon leaves us to infer from his speech that slavery in the end is to j overrun every foot of this continent. Here j we have a man telling our people in one j breath that slavery is bound to expand; that it cannot be limited ; that it must come in competition with free labor; and, in the nt'xt tnBt he is in favor of tlie people of a Territory deciding for themselves whether their Territory shall come iu a slave or a free State. If the laws of slave expansion are irresistible, how can the people of a Territory keep it away from them? It is very evident Gov. Dixon thinks they cannot do so, and he goes lor Mr. Douglas he cause as that geutleman stated in his last speech in the Senate h:3 doctrine of popu lar sovereignty has made slave territory sufficient for the foruiatioti of live slave States of the size of New York. The lSx-Governor theu proceeded to diaw a frightful picture of the civil war that would he sure to eusue in case Liucoiu was elected. Tbis li harp of a thousand strings ' id a very couvenieut one with which to frighten the timid, and the Ejc-Governor played ou it with consummate skill before that aulience of women, children, and men with sensitive pockei-nerves. Says tbe I Ex-Goveruor, in an impressive peroration, j " If tbis Black Republican party succeeds, civil war will coiue. Dissolution will en j sue. Brother will bo turned against brother, antl father against son. This beautiful city, ' situated near the bolder, will bear tbe hrunt of the disasters that will follow. Your ; houses witl be burned over your heads ; j your wtVCf and children will be murdered ; your men will be shot down in the streets ; your property will be despoikd," and the Old Harry was going to be to pay gener ally. We really thought Ex-Governoi Dixon nlwve these little theatrical tricks enacted for the purpose of creating a sensa tion, but were mistaken ir. the man. The Ex-Govercors rarty have hepn claiming to be Union men, and have been charging disunion on the Breckinridge men. But now it seems, th.it, on the au thority of this originator of MfMbttef sove- reignty and leader of tbe party in this part of the country, the Douglasites intend to dissolve the Union if Lincoln and Hamlin are elected according to the Constitution. The Enquirer seems to endorse his speech. Does it so understand the designs of its party ? We want the people to know it, if the Douglas party also is a Disunion party. Mechanics and farmers: how do yon like the prospect presented for your considera tion by Ex-fiov. Dison ?--the unlimited expansion of slavery, and dissolution of the l'n ui;i and civil war in case of the tri umph of a party which says to slavery, "Thus far sh alt thou go, and no further, and here shall thy foul waves be stayed ! ' Will you support the party which Kx-Cov. Dixon represents; or will j-ou sustain the Hepublican party in its detenu iiiation to restore the country to the policy of the Fathers of the Republic, and to preserve the Terrtories for the use of free white men ? I Slavery can aud iiikiI be confined to its preseut locality, or white men must con j sent, ultimately, to leave this country alto ; gether, or be overruu by negroes. Cov Dixon and bis party seek to spread the in. stitutioii of slavery over the whole couti ueut to force it iuto the free States as well g5The State Sentinel is about making some awful revelations in regard to Messrs. j John Pettit and Jesse D.

The Democracy of Yanderburgh county are in trouble. The party which, four rears ago, could give its candidates from five hundred to eight hundred majority in the county, now falters as to its course. In its ranks "tbe irrepressible conflict " rages much more violently than ever it did in the imagination of Mr. Seward. All that the party now hopes for is the success of the State and County tickets. The defeat of Mr. Douglas stares every sane Democrat in the face ; it is useless to deny it. The only hope of the "small fry " politicians s to se cure tbe local offices, but in such counties as Yanderburgh such prospect is "growing small by degrees and beautifully less ; " and hence their consternation. For the past six weeks, the Sheriff ancl his friends have been busy in their efforts to patch up the i ranks and soothe the wounds in the party, but it has been almost vain. The county executive committee, notwithstanding it was selected and constituted at the dictation I of the aforesaid official, has proven a re- ; fractory body. Once and again has it been called together only to separate wider than before. Long and solemn have been the deliberations in that office where tbe party meets for its " instructions," but no comfort have these deliberations afforded. In vain have the plans to entrap the "Nationals,'' the Breckinridgers, into a convention been set they evidently have their eyes open. ; They see the hand of the Sheriff in them all, and they have learned to beware. Their advances toward the Bell men have proved unavailing also. They could inveigle a , few of the boys by " tho pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war," as evinced by their red flannel caps and ; military titles, and by the privilege of marching behind " nigger " transparencies i but the bait was too foul for old Whigs to take. Even an offer to divide j the offices was no temptation. Finding it j impossible to bring in the " Nationals " or Bell men to save for them the offices, in ! their despair they were driven to tbe re tiracy of that Third street office to hold their Convention, and yet the nominations j agreed upon were by no means as satisfac- j torv as might be desired. The Clerkshin I could lie easily disposed of; the Sheriffalty of course could be awarded to only one; but the fat office of the Treasury is too good j a place to be relinquished by aspirants. j The " irrepressiole conflict" rages there. I And so a portion of the county committee I call a Mum Convention of the '' faithful," to consult ou the "symptoms" of the party, and ratify the nominations already made if thought advisable. The Conrention is to come off next week. Now, if the Mass Conveutiou is to be held, aud if the "Nationals," who are so unfor tunate as to have no conveyances of their own, waut to ride out these hot days, they had better cecure their buggies early. Per haps it has beeu so loug ago that they have forgotten that entire livery stables can be chartered by industrious candidates. It may be they have also forgotten bow the Babylovvu Convention was managed how Judge Law yielded to the trickery of -tbe Sheriff bow ardent Dougla, delegates were sent to the State Convention.

Earthquake.- This is a year of phe nomena. Comets, eclipses, meteors, and earthquakes, have all by turns astonished mm awed mankind in tbis portion of the world. Yesterday forenoon, about nine o'clock, : an earthquake was felt here very distinctly. ! The sensation, as we felt it, was as if a ; heavily laden wagon had suddenly beeu ,lriven over the pavement in trout of the , house. The moliou was accompanied by a mysterious rumbliug like distant thunder. It was strong enough to rattle the dishes in a safe, violently. We noticed that for a few minutes afterwards the fowls crowed like they lo at daybreak. During the cou- vulsion au uueitrthly silence prevailed, so far as noise from man or brute was con cerned. teg"-The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia J'rtss says, iu regard to Lincoln's moderation in political matters : The friends of Lincoln in Washington are earnest iu declaring that if he should be elevated to the Presidency, his Adminis tration would be so conservative that in six months after his inauguration no man i wonld be found objecting to it on account : of the slavery issue. NEWS BY TELEGRAPH. BY THE E. W. LtNE. Exclusively for the Journal. Missouri selection. St. Loi is, Aug. 7. There are still four precincts to hear from, which two years ago gave Barrett about 100 majority. The vote has been a very heavy one, being an increase of about 700 ovi-r the vote of 1858. Everything passed of quietly and without disturbance of any kind as far as heard from. Barrett's majority for the short term is about 45, and though the result is still doubtful, it is generally conceded that he is elected. For the long term Todd, the Union can didate, received about 4300 votes, which is a loss of 700 since 1858. So far Blair's majority over Barrett for the long term is about One thousand. Orr, Union candidate for Governor, receiv ed a majority in this district of about 2000. The Legislative ticket is still in doubt, but favors the Republicans. The Republicans also elect a majority of the county officers. St. Louis, August 7. F. P. Blair, jr., is elected for the long term by fifteen hundred majority. For the short term the contest is very close, and cannot be determined until the official returns are received. Blair is probably defeated by les3 than one hun dred. The returns for Governor so far in dicate the probable elec on of Orr. North Carolina Election. Petkksbchgh, Va., August 6. The Ex- , press, (neutral,) has just received the fol- i lowing from a reliable source at Raleigh : Full returns from 45 counties show a et gain for Pool of 3,049 over Fillmore's vote in 1806. These 45 counties constitute two-thirds of the popular vote in the State. ; Admitting that Poo! will gain in the same ratio in the remainder of the State, I Ellis s majority will be 7,537. The Demo cratic majority in the Legislature will be reduced considerably, but is too large to be overcome. The Democrats have evidently carried the State. Kentucky Election. Locisvili.k, Aug. 7. McClarty gains in Lincoln county one hundred, and in Scott county 49 over Magoffin's vote for Governor. Gains are reported for McClarty in Rockcastle county. Washington, August Cth. Mr. Conrad, Secretary of Var under Mr. Fillmore's Ad ministration, is now, here, preparing the publication of a letter urging a joint Bell and Douglas ticket of Unionists for the sake of the Union, and proposing that the suc cessful electors under such an arrangement choose between these Presidential candid ates according to their relative strength. Official dispatches from Utah state in ad dition to the hundred revolvers heretofore supplied, sixty rifles, together with the necessary ammunition, has been furnished by the proper military officers to the pony express riders for defense against the Indians. Mr. Cuas. Hutchinson has been appointed Postmaster at Woodstock, iu place of Brown, removed. Nearly all the foreign miuisters are absent from Washington. Setior T.tssatia, the Span ish Envoy, is au exception, but he will in the course of u week start on a Nolhern tour, at the iustance of the Secretary of War. Syhacl'sk. Augnst 0th. The attendance at ihe Democratic Convention at present is light, but a number of delegates will arrive ou next train. It is expected that full rep resentations will be present to-morrow. Yery few outsiders muster yet. The only lenders present yet are Hon. Gideon J. Tuck er, and John A. Green, jr. August Schell is not here yet, but is expected here in the morning. Edward f'roswell remained over at Albany and will not be in Syracuse in consequence of indifferent health. He is said to favor a compromise and union. The organization of which John A Green is head appears to be the one generally re cognized by the delegates as regular. Schell, it is thought, will not make any great opposition to it, as many delegates from New York City give in allegiance to Green. It nppears certain thatastraight tick et, both State and electoral, will be made, but there is some effort amongst a few delegates at postponement for sthe purpose of effect ing a compromise. Syracuse, August f. The-eleven o clock train from the east, brings up orar addition to the delegates, including Augustus Schell, and the Major of New York delegation. Dickson is talked of for Governor by accla mation, but his wishes will be consulted. He is expected to-morrow. If he does not wish to run, probably Chas. O'Conor will be the nominee. New York, August 7. A meeting of the British residents of New York was held at the Astor House last evening, to consider the propriety of extending an appropriate welcome ou behalf of the British subjects in this city to the Prince of Wales, on his visit to New Y'ork. About one hundred per sons were present. Mr. Archibald, the British Con?ul. was chosen chairman, and made a speech by denying on behalf or the British residents any intention to interfere in any manner with the reception that might ba extended to the Prince of Wales by the citizens of New York. A committee of fifteen waj appointed to take preliminary steps far getting up some demonstrations of respect for the Prince, which while it should not interfere with the public reception, j-et should testify the esteem 5a which his Royal Highness is held by bis future subjects now residing in this country. Tbe steamship Arago from Havre and Southampton arrived last night. News an ticipated. New Y'ouk, August G Delegates to the Breckiuridge and Lane State Convention, which meets here to-morrow, are arriviug freely, and there is no doubt that every As sembly District in the State will be repre seuted. There will lie but oue organization, and the Convention will be called to order by John A. Green, jr., Chairman of the National Democratic State Convention. We are assured by those who k-ow, that a full State and Electoral ticket will be nominated, and that no fusion will take place. Resolutions are prepared endorsing Breck inridge and Lane, and the platform adopted at the Maryland Institute, Baltimore. The representatives, as they arrive, all endorse the Green organisation, and repudiate Mr. Schell's call for a Convention. Washington, July 6. The Herald's cor respondent understands that President Bu I chanan intends to visit the Great Eastern on Wednesday. Notwithstanding the denial in an official quarter that an order has been given to pur chase Lime Point near San Francisco, it appears that a requisition was made on tbe Treasnry department for two hundred thous and dollars for tbe purpose, and a draft was issued. Strangely enough, however, the draft was cancelled to day at the treasury department.

A large party of Excursionists from Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Lousiana, and Texas, invited by tbe several Railroads, arrived here tbis even ing, en route for Niagara Falls, and are be ing entertained this evening by a grand ball at the Russell House. Among the number are many prominent Southern gentlemen, New Orleans being largely represented. They leave to-morrow by a special train. Syraccsk, August 6. The Central City Courier publishes a call, by four hundred Democrats of this city, for a meeting of the friends of Breckinridge and Lane this even ing, to organize a campaign club to be called the " Giant Killers." New York, August 6. John A.

We have some news, however, that we received before the line was prostrated. It is interesting. It is said that Hon. Albert S. White formerly U. S.

Now, to the particular package of papers referred to by Mr. Biscbof, as tbe Journal men dou't specify save in the case of Posey ville. That we will learn more of after awhile. The route ageut puts off a mail but three times a week at Nash's Depot und Sanders ville Mondays, Wednesdays, and Satur days. I was from home at the time men tioned ; but upon enquiry of my clerks, they say that on that morning the regular way mail pouch was full, and ttiat they put a portion of the newspapers in a second pouch and drew it near the door, but in the usual hurry with our morning mail it was over looked. The following morning it was sent out and there was no oue at the Depot to receive it. It was then kept over until the regular day. This will explain that delay. We never have apolitical canvass in this country, that the party in power is not all wrong, and the outs are urging change. The editors of the "Journal and Volks bote " have access to my office, through courtesy, and always have had, and they ought to know that our business is conduct ed just as usual. We will now see how regular others are. This morning the package of Daily Journals for Indianapolis was directed to Evansville, and their entire newspaper mail for the cars reached this office fifteen min utes behind time ; and had it not been for a violation of a known rule, they would have remained over, and to-morrow's mail might have brought more complaints. We don't claim that no mistakes occur in our office, but as far as I am concerned, I try to correct the evils when brought to light. I have my political opinions as well as other men, but as to being so biased in them that I can't do justice to an opponent, or that I would violate my oath of office for party ends most emphatically deny. I think a partizan paper hard up for material when they deem it a duty to make sich in sinuations. Yery P.espectfully, C. R. RUDD, P. M. The daily expenses of the Great Eastern are 1,150."
