T. M. llayet' Acceptation Speech
Thin gentleman's n| wh accepting the Dem
ocratic nomination for Congr*e« in this div
trict » published in the kit Democrat. Mr.
Have* commence* with setting forth the
beauties ->( the Democratic creed, in general
terms. The Idtva are arranged quite logi
cally, and set torth in terse and vigorous lan
guage, and M an exposition of principal
would be accepted by the whole people.—
They are in truth American doctrine*, ac
cepted by all partiea, and belong exclusively
to no party or political organisation. In a*
turning that they constitute the idea* or creed
on which the Democracy would rule, or
hare ruled the country, Mr. Hayea commit*
great enure. Take for illivtration the fol
lowing: Mr. llajca mjt the Democratic
creed further areerta—
••That juatioe and aound policy loroiu iw
federal government to cherien tb« inUrrreta ol
one portion to Um detriment of another por
tion ot oar common country ; that every cit
i*n, and every portion of the country, ho* a
right to demand and inskt upon an equality
ol right* and privilege."
Now, whatever may be the Democratic
creed in this reepeet, every pereon converaunt
with the history of our country and the his
tory of the Democratic party perfectly un
derstand,that for the loot twenty yean it hea
been the object and aim o( the Democratic
party "to cberieh the intereete of one por
tion to the detriment of another portion ol
our common country." All of ita power and
influeooe baa been given to advance the inter
cata of the slave State* and to injure the in
tcreata of the free. II Mr. Ilayea will look
over the legialntion of the country bum the
time of the admiaaioo of Texaa, which waa
put aolely by Mr. Calhoun and the Southern
Democracy oa the ground that it wai made
necemary to protect the alave institution,thro'
the exciting timea which hare paaaed aince,
be win m that the Democracy have done
little eke but to put tbemeefrea in oppoaitioo
to the priciplea which he amerta.

I turns a deaf ear to *11 lequests for protec
tion to American indatfrj, prevents the
linking together of the Atlantic with the
Pacific coast by aaans of a national railroad
to the Pacific, endeavored to thrust a hated
constitution on an unwilling people, still re
sists the admission of Kansas because she de
sires to be free, obtains decisions from the
Supreme Court subversive of the principles
on which our government is busrd, and is this
day, either by the mission of indilfcrenoc or
by bolder means, attempting to make the in
stitution of human slavery as broad as tbe
domains of the republic. No matter what
the creed may be, this the Democratic party
has done 0* is endeavoring to do. It tui
"stolen the livery of heaven to servo the devil
in." Mr. llaycs speaks o( its being one o*
the articles of the Democratic creed, "Per
fect equality of the States and all sections ol
the country.1' This is a well turned sen
tence, but its Democratic explanation is this,
and simply this—a right to mako a 1 the
States slave,under a construction of the Con
stitution that declares "slaves to be property
on an equality with other property." This
is tbe sense in which the tenbs "equality
amon;; the States" and "equal rignis anu
privilege* auion^ the individual citisens"
must he understood, to conform to the pres
ent teaching of Democracy. We hoar of
popular sovereignty (thiamuchabusedterm),
equal rights and equal priril^jes to be yielded
to our Southern brethren, and reduce it all
domrto real Democratic moanuij i t is the righ t
to mtmblmk sUrary in all j> iru of our com
mon country. Thia we are aware would be
no objection to Mr. llayes, who ia, an we
know Irom hia own lips, a friend to African
slavery. a believer in its blessings, and a
hater of tboee miblime truth* promulgate 1
by Jefferson in that immortal state paper,the
Declaration of Independence.
Mr. Hajes looks upon the acts and meas
ures of the father* "as mere traditions of tho
elders," and hence he denounces tho Missou
ri Compromise Act, and glories in that act of
the traitor Douglas by which it was repealed.
The people of this Congressional District in
three successive instances have passed judg
ment on that question, and we have no fear
that they will now reverse that judgment by
electing Mr. Hayos.
The old time Democracy ho ignores be
cause it hated slavery—the new time Democ
racy he loves because "it does not care
whether slavery is voted down or up," «r
because it wants its extension. Tho Democ
racy of Washington, I*fayetto, Jefferson,
Henry, Randolph, Wirt, Madison, Monroe,
Denton and Clay, "is merely the traditions
of the elders," but the Democracy of Bu
chanan, Douglas, Davis, and others ol the
present day, is anobjoct of his especial admi
We have not space for extended comment
on Mr. Haves' speech. We shall content
ourself with giving our readers two passages
which are characteristic of the man. They
are these:
The tongue or a maicroiem pouaniry, se»
on (ire or hell, may, perhaps, delight small
fanatical assemblies with barluruus di«N|ui«i
tions upon the faneied KarUirisma of other
communities, but it will not to suffered to
disgrace our Congressional Imll*.
Con ti ted skeptics may, perhaj*, continue
to repeat their impious suggvwtioii, that Dei
ty Himself is a failure, tm-auso their feeble
vision cannot {vnetrnte tin clouds and <Iark
ness which are round ahout Him, and recon
cile all human condition* with their views of
the justice and judgment which ought to be
the habitation of IIin Throne—l>ut the God
of our fathers will still abide—the tuuie yes
terday, to-day and forever.
No man in our community but Mr. Hayes
could have so coupled the firm of hell with
the attribute* of Deity. It take* a concen
tration of malevolence and hate which can
only emanate from the bottomless pit to put
! words together In such a way an to convert
the grand truths of that Gospel which touch
es all men to love one another even as Christ
loved his disciples, and which d»uiands the
breaking of the rod of tho oppressor, into
declarations of his Providences, and to treat
a* the suggestion* or "conceited skeptic*"all
of God's eternal truths which denounce the
wickcdnesa of that system which i* at war
with tho precepts of tho christian religion
and man's humanities.
It is because the people have confidence
and trust in the "(tod of our fathers,who will
still abide the same yesterday, to-day and
forever," that thoy will turn away with scorn
and loathing from one who, in thi« nineteenth
century, with all the lights of civiliiation
beaming upon him, dares tho impiety of sus
taining an institution which the immortal
Jefferson Hi id "u frawjkt talk mort tut si ry
tKan ayts of that trhtfh our father* rose in
rtbtlUon to opposr"— which Dr. Franklin de
clared'was an atrocious deboMewent of Hu
man Nature'—which Henry said "was at va
riance with tho purity of our religion," and
which the great Wesley said was "the sum
of aU human vilUnies."
Mr. Hayea may make mouthing speeches
1 about popular sovereignty ami equal rights,
but a people who bav« breathed the pure and
free air of New KngUaJ, who Ian grown
strong under the blessed influences of her
school-houses and churches, and prosperous
under the life-giving fruits of free labor, will
understand that all his talk simply means the
extension and perpetuation of slavery, and
understanding this will reject him at the
ballot-box, and consign him to that political
perdition which he merits.
Dm|I» Ii Salie,
Hon. J>T*rnti A**oli> Docqlw, the traTel
line candidate for lb* Preehleney made a flying
Tiait Into oar 8tate last week. He went by the
boat, ttrst to Bangor, nxl «u present in that
city while the Young Mcn'a Democratic Con
ten lion vu in progress. On bis return he pasa
cd through Augusta an.I the various towna on
the route toPortland, where he met a large crowd
who aseembled to *ee him. While there he made
one of his political speechee, m he did also at
Bangor. Theee epeeebea have been published in
the Democratic papers, but after a careful p»
rueal of them we do not find that he givee any
reason why he (loea not care " rktlktr sJarery
is rottU Joi«a or up,' or doee he tell the peo
ple why that he la running on th« same ticket
with Herschell V. Johnson, the Blare CoJe ad

letter to n Oeocgia editor that " he believed U

getting out at the 8aoo depot waa carried to
Factory Island, what* the people had a—em

wae Introduced to the people by Uua. Wa. P.
Haines, who Mid in iubsUnoe, that jrwri ego,
a man vent from Saco to Washington, and that
Bukditon, and that ton bad bom to Un a

tinguished pereon whom he had the honor to
introduce, Stephen A. Douglas. We hoped tc

interest Douglas bowed to the people, a fen
(hint shouts were heard, and |he proceeded to
make a brief speech, saying be waa glad U
meet them, but could not make a long speed
on aceo«nt of his lungs being about used up
and because, although he loved the peopU
much, there was somebody down to Newport
whom he loved more, who waa waitiag for bin
and who would be sorry if the train did nol
take him directly to see her. At the doee o
his remarks, K. R. Wiggin, Esq., called foi
three cheers " for Douglas," which were giver
somewhat faintly, and he then caltcd for thrt<
cheers " for the next President," which, ai
there were many republicans preeent who

true in goodly numbera, but it waa apparent
' that the larger part of them, though ready t<

if any, in decency and propriety, above the ef

The Tennessee Importation.
A Mr. Perrln, a Democratic Importation
from the Slave Sute of Tenneaaee,brought hen
to teach the freeman of our State their political
duties, and probably paid a good price for hii
| lectures, addressed the Democracy of Diddeford
at Union Hall on Saturday night. Th® Ilall wai
well filled, the republicans aa usual contribut
ing largely to the number and respectability ol
the meeting. The speech ot Mr. Perrin, though
generally making the same points aa Mr. Mar
shall's, was more genial than that made by his
brother from the Slave State of Kentucky.
We will do the Tene«eean the justice to aay
that he retails old anecdotes well, and mixes
up the "wool" of the negro and the cotton ol
the plantation owner, so as to make the dish,
by its odditiea, of a laughable character, and
he succeeds quite well in keeping active the
risible faculties of his audience.
Iu matters of political history, we should
judge that he went on the principle, "that a
lie well stuck to is better than the truth." He
said he was formerly an old Whig, and he
claimed Daniel Webster and Henry Clay both
u having advocated the 'Popular Sovereignty'
of the humbug Dougta* stamp. Every intelli
gent man familiar with the history of Daniel
Webster known that he never endorsed or advo
cated the doctrine. He was always an arserter
of the right* of Congress o*cr the territories.
In a i|>e«ch made in the Senate of the Uulted
States in 1850 he said :
We have always gone U|x>n the ground that
these territorial government* were in a state of
pupiltge, under the protection or (wtronage of
the General Government. The territorial leg
islature has a constitution prescribed by .Con
gress. They have no power not given by that
Congress. They must act within the liinita of
the constitution granted thein by Congress, or
el»e their acts become void. The |»eople under
the territorial government are not a sovereign
ty ; they do not ponscs any of the rights Incideut
to sovereignty. They an* it' y«u please to de
nominate it, in a state of inchoate government
and sovereignty If we well consider this ques
tion upon the ground of our practice during
the last half century, I think we will find one
way of deposing of it. It is our duty to pro
vide for the people of the Territories a govern
ment to keep the peace, to secure their prop
arty; to assign to them a subordinate legisla
tive authority; to assign to them a subordinate
judicial authority, to see that the protection of
their persons and the security of their property
are all regularly provided for; and to maintain
them in that State until they grow into sufficient
im|>ortancc, in point of population, to be ad
mitted Into the Union as a State upon the same
footing with the original States. It seems to
me that this is all our duty. I shall most readi
ly concur in anything which tends to the per
formance of that duty Dut I can not go into
any general discussion about the rights of the
people while under territorial government, and
do more than they are permitted to do by that
constitution which creates a government over
Again Mr. Webster said:
'There is no land, not an acre, the character
of which is not established by law—a law *ihich
cannot be repealed without a violation ofa con
tract, and plain disregard of public faith.' And
in s|>eaking of the Wilmot l'roviso, he used the
following cmphatio language which cannot be
misunderstood: 'Sir, wherever there is a par
ticular good to be done, wherever there is a
foot of land to be stayed back from becoming
slave territory, lam ready to aurrt (At pri'nci
plt qf thetxelution q/ tlartry. I hart bttn
pltdgtd to it from 1837. / hirtOttnjtltigtI to
it ugriia and again, and I trill jxr/orm thou
pltdgtt.' Is this the languageof'non-interven
tion 7* Is this the great principle of'Squatter
Mr. Ten-ill himself must know better, and bi<
attempt to drag the great name ot Daniel Web
«ter into the support of this Douglas cheat, was
simply an imposition.
Mr. Clay was equally emphatic In his asser
; tion of the right of Congress over the territo
j riee. All that Mr. Perrin said in reference to
| the opinions of either of those distinguished
u»en, was simply assumption. It was said with
an air of recklessness which led us to belie**
that he did not care whether he uttered false
hoods or not.
Mr. Perrin, as did Mr. Marshall, essayed to
t:y the "scare dodge," anl grew quiteeloquent
over the terrible calamities which his imagina
tion conjured up, when his brother Slave
Holders of the BreckinriJge stamp, dissolved
the Union. He said he himself, on account of
his conservative sentiments, and Union loving
ideas was a proscribed man at the South, and
said that he was only induced to come up here
because of his great desire to save the Union.
Ue was actuated by a heart overflowing with
patriotism—and had come all the way from
Tennessee to these cold regions to persuads the
psoplt of our Slats to vote for Douglas, and in
so doing save the Union from the certain de»
s:ruction that awaited it if tbe Republicans
succeeded—not that the Douglas men in the
South were going to destroy it, but "Yancey
Slidcll and the Breckinridge men were going
to do it A* there is no Disunion sentiment
here, it would seem that Mr. Perrin expends
his patriotism in the wrong place, and that his
ml field of labor is whers the sentiment of
Disunion is found, among his democratic breth
ren in the Hlavr States. We advise him to go
there, or quit the field altogether, as we are
quite certain that this "Disunion Scare" has
J run itself into tbe ground here, and that not a
man in Maine will be frightened into an abao
I donment of his political convictions through
the bar of what Yaaoey Slidell and other
Breckinridge men" will do IfLlaeola '4rlt^r1

Another Oreat Meeting.
The meeting Arranged to b«r lion. Henry
Wllaon, of Mia*., on Wednesday evening wu
held In the area fronting the Congregational
Chnreh. Union Hall wu engaged, bat some
tine before the hoar for assembling had come,
t wae filled, aad gnat aaaabere assembled
around the doore unable to gain admittance.
Under this atate of things it waa deemed expe
dient to hare the apeaking in the open air. HrJ
Wllaon waseeoorted to the place of apeaking by
the Wlde-Awakeeof oar two plaeee, who with
torches numbering two hundred and fifty, made
a moat brilliantappearanoe. Mr. Wllaon apoke
' to the erowd numbering several thouaanda for
I near two hoars. We have no room for anjr ex
' tended report ot the apeeeh. It waa both elo
quent and convincing in argument and facta,
and iiatened to with great earneatneea and aU
u tent ion. Our people aeem to be thoroughly
arouaed to the importance of the iaiuee of the
campaign, and will ahow by their voteaonelec
II tion day that their love for free apeeeh, free
aoil and freemen, haa increaaed rather than di
' miniahed.
Mr. Wilaon in the coarae of hla apeeeh, after
showing up theinconaiatancy and hypocriay of
i Douglas in relation to freedom generally, and
> czpoaing the abeunlity of hia aham popular
i sovereignty, recapitulated aome of the act* of
11 the iaat Kepablican Home at Waahington, mea
i tioning the jt**aige of bill* to admit Kansas,
I the Homeatead bill*, the bill to repeal the ia
• i famous Slave Code paaaed by the territorial leg
laiature of New Mexico, the bill to readjuat the
i tariff ao aa to give adequate meana to carry on
the government and to protect American labor,
1 and other meaauree, all of which had failed
' through the action of the Democracy in the
Senate. Thia recapitulation waa made to nwet
and refute Douglaa' aaaertion that the Ilepubli
| can party bad but one idea, and that it wai *o
| buaied with the nigger question that it c->uld
| find no time to attend to the other interest* of
the country. Mr. Wilaon not only ah owed the
j falaity of thia aaaertion, bnt he showed that it
waa the Democracy In Congreaa and (specially
in the Senate which by the agitation of the
alavery quration were reeponaible foi the de
feat of all uieaaurea calculated to prooote the
real interest of the country. On many of these
measures he showed that Douglaa, to fain fa
vor from the South, or for aome other selfUh
purpose, acted in auch a way aa to taks awry
all pretence that he cared either for freelom or
any of the material interesta of the people.
One fact mentioned by him is worth remem
brance. Douglaa haa been represented here at
the North aa faroruble to the admittance of
Kanaaa aa a free State. The people acting in
the proper way, adopted a free constitution,
fUKCU lor aumiwun, ariu mo iiuuso jmnsei mc
bill and sent it to the Senate. It was there refer*
1 red to the Committee on Territories. This Com
mittee consisting of seven, kept the bill in thrir
, possession a lung time. Douglas was n member
of tbe committee, and the committee being di
vided, three being In favor of reporting favor*
ably upon it and three agaiMt, held the bal
anoe of |»ower. He dM not attend the sessions
I of the committee. Ilia vote iu the committe
favorable to a recommendation for Its passage
would have taken it out the committee and
placed it before the Senate under circumntancrs
favorable to its passage. The bill was Anally
> brought before the Senate, but without any
1 recommendation for its passage. There were
| seversl important votes in relation to It, but
when these votes were taken, Mr. Douglas was
not present, and throughout the entire session
1 seemed utterly Indifferent to the admission of
Kansas as a free State.
Our Republican friends must not, in the
whirl of the demonstrations now goiiiK on,
and the public speaking, forget the work ofof.
ganixation. This is the real solid work of the
catn|taign. Speaking is all right, and process*
ions and toroh-lights are all right, but a thor
ough, effective organisation, one that will
bring out the last voter to the |>olls, is thegreit
\ want. Let the party be thoroughly organixed
and ft full vote polled, and a 18.0 i Republican
vote will be reached Town Committees who
have the work iu charge should take stejw early
to have absent voters brought home, carrhges
provided for the infirm on the day of elsction,
votes properly distributed, and all proper meas
ures taken to secure the casting of every Re
publican vote. Oruasiic ! Orranixe ! this is
the word. We believe that the Sham Democra
cy will go under from fifteen to twenty thous
and in the State, but if this shall be the case the
Republicans must work—work. Let us not
o.immit the fault of despising the enemy, or,
counting on their weaknesses and divisions, re
lax effort. Our opponents fttv making vigor
ous exertions, sending money, especially in
; this Congressional District, without stint, and
have a ho|>c of carrying the district and coun
| ty. We have no doubk but they will be badly
beaten in both; but our prediction is made in
, the full confidence tha't the work of organ.'xa
; tion. on the part oi the Republicans, will be so
perfect as to bring to the |k>1Is the whole Re
publican vote. Again we say, don't rely too
much on publio speaking and brilliant shows,
but let the work of organisation go along with
them, and the result will be a Waterloo deleat
of the Sham Democracy.

Liston to tho Facts!
Bead the Becordl
Hie last number of the X. V. Indtptmltnl
contains a searching review of Douglas' record
on Kansas matters. We quote the scathing
I "Time would hardly suffice to track Mr.
Douglas through his long career of subservU
I encjr to the slaveholders in their struggle to
plant their "institution" in the soil of Kansas,
yet one general view must not be omitted. On
the astembling of the XXXIVth Congress,
Dec., 1853, two opposing claimants for a seat
as Delegate from Kansas appeared at the bar of
the House, while Senators and a Representative
from the embryo State of that name beeeiged
)he halls of both branches. Mr. Under, whom
l'resideut l'iercc had appointed Governor, had
returned accredited as Delegate, and as Sena
tor also whenever Kansas should be admitted
into the fiscally of 8tates. He and his associ
ates brought tidings of unprecedented outrage
and wrong—of a Legislature wrested from the
hands of Die people in whose name and behalf
it was to act, constituted by conspiracy, inva
sion, force and fraud, in the intereet of their
deadliest enemies—of all the forms of republi
can sway prostituted to the ends of subjugation
and oppression—of free citiiens murdered,
families hunted from their homes by night into
the bleak prairie and compelled thence to look
on the devastation of all their possessions—of
a Federal Governor removed for sympathizing
with the people rather than their invading «p>
pressors—ot Federal power wielded to the nt
termost against the defenceless settlers, and in

Our Great Victory in St. Louis.
Proud tone of the RepubUoans of that
The following closing imragraphs from the
leader in the St. Louia Drmocrai, announcing
the great Republican victory in that city, ex
hibit the tone and spirit of true chivalry. Head
the proud words:
"Ourvictory has l>e«n won without n trade
or coalition of any kind. It is a straight out
Republican triumph. True, we gave our votes
as a general thing to the Union state ticket, but
this we did from high motives of public duty,
and without asking or receiving any return.
St. Louia is, therefore, a Republican city. W«
had to withstand the unpleasant sentiment oc
casioned by the " Impending Crisis," a work
which, now (hat the election is over, we will
aay that we do not endorse. The contest has
Ixvn fought by the Republican party on the
Chicago platform and on the emancipation
principle. The one was our National, and the
other our Htate platform, throughout the cam
paign. We took no backward step. We low
ered not the (lag. On the contrary, it waa ad
vanced higher, and further forward than ever
l>cfure. We even refused to diaclaim any po
sition, however extreme, on the slavery que*
tion. which the enciny attributed to us. We
actcd uniformly on the offensive—never on the
defensive. The apologetic tone could not he
discovered in anything said or written on the
part of the Republican party. We dared to in
\ite the most radical exponents of our doctrincs
from abroad, and to publish their speeches in
the storm and whirlwind of the canvass. If we
erred at all, we erred on the side of bolducs*.
It is therefore with feelings of just pride, that
we send this message, greeting to our Republi
can brethren throughout tho country. We
have fought and won the Montebello of the
Presidential cain|iaign. We even give aesur
ance that St. Louis County will go for Lincoln
and Hamlin in November by two thousand ma
jority, and that the two candidate* will recciv*
nt least thirty-flve thousand votes In Missouri.
We have satisfied both ouraelvea and the pro.
slavery party that the Free Labor cause can
never lie crushed out in this Htate. The strug
5le for a mere footing is closed, and the re
emption of the State Is now but a question of
time. St. Louis is indeed the Gibralter—the
impregnable fortress of freedom— in the Slave

"We art (saya the Chicago Tribunt) anr

gatherings, that tb« crowd at8pnng)eld throws
far in the ahade the gathering in this cltjr on
either of Um occasions of the United States
Fair, in the fall ot 1830, and the more recent
National Convention ; that the monster proces
sion was almost interminable, and wore out the
patience of dense crowds in waiting, through
which it passed with difficulty, the streets at
•one points being well nigh blocked up with
spectators, who aid not join the pageant.
At the time of the day when the In tereet cen
tered at the great Fair Grounds, joe* outside
the city, and the proceaaion colled its taat

gathering exceeded that at any one time Men

And all this while Springfield seemed appar
ently as fall as ever. The streets were fairly
chocked up, and wheels of business clogged
with the flood tide, a very freshet of Republi
canism. The telegraph office operators, ma
chines and all, were removed to the cupola of
the State House. Many of the storekeepers
actually closed their doors to kasp out a crowd
too much under preasure to do shopping.
And farther along it says:
And when evening passed, and to the excit

The ptoce s!ou was immenss—almost Intermi
nable—occupying three hours in passing any
point, while hosts of people, as usual, did nut
go into the line of march.
The procession reached the Fair Ground at
about 1 o'clock, P. M., and in a very short
time thereafter the entire grove was filled—
crowded to excess with the vast multitude.
How many were present,U is impossible to tell,
but by actual count more than 10,000 passed in
at one of the entrances alone, while the fields
ailjoinlng were packed and jammed with wag
ons and other vehicles.
E.wii'SIASm roa Lixcouc.—One account of
Ibe affair says :
"The prominent, ]>trhfip* moat prominent,
iilca conveyed by tho dcviccs, the train pur
sued in the wagon*, the rail-splitting, kc., and
by tbe implement* and utensils with which the
wagons were decked out, had reference to pio
neer lifo, and to well known incidents In Mr.
Lincoln's early eareer.' Some of these devices
—especially those carried by men who have
beeu our candidate's friends for thirty years—
inen with whom he has toiled in the forest and
the Held— touched him in a tender place, and
more than once his eyes glistened with the ev.
idences of an emotion which hacknied politic
ians rarely feel. For his old Mends, m tliry ad
dressed him by name in passing, be hail a hear
ty word. The oration was one thai few men
have ever received. The people rushed to bim,
not by command, as soldiers Die before their
leader not to gratify their personal curiosity,
not to show themselves and get praise for their
teal; but to testify their devotion to the ability
and unstained integrity which have made Lin
coln what he is ; and to show their profound
confidence that in his hands the affairs of (be
nation will be safe. By all these thronging
thousands he was recognised as a man of the
people — one whose sympathies are always
found on the side of honest toil, and never with
the extortioner and oppressur. What wonder
that the high honor paid that plain, untitled
man, by the Chicago Convention, should have
signified to those masses that a new era is ap
proaching, in which patriotism shall stand in
place of political'chicanery.and honesty in the
jdace of profligacy. What wonder that the en
thusiasm was irrepressible!

Hersciikl V. Johnson a Disunionist.—'We
presume there U no higher democratic authori
ty in Massachusetts than Geo. Butler. When
he aocuaea a brother democrat of being a die*
unionist the charge cannot be repelled as a
" black republican " calumny. This ia what
he said, in a speech at Lowell, last week, of Mr.
Johnson, the democratic candidate for Vice
President with Mr. Douglaa :
" lie ia a disunionist. Has run as disunion
candidate for Governor. He has declared in
favor of the opening of the African slave tradq,
He made a speech in IBM in Philadelphia, in
which he aaid that " he thought it was the beat
plan for capital to own its labor."
It ia gratifying that the only political party
that ever suggested the disolation of the Union
as a remedy for the constitutional and legal ac
tion of the people, in the exercise of the right
of suffrage, has divided into two hoetiie Ac
tions, each charging on the other the offence
that both have committed, and rivalling each
other in their professions of loyalty to the Un

Now I wish to supply through tbe column*
of your exoellent paper an omlaeion of the
Judge, which probably was made by him for
brevity's fake, and that is, he should have
stated what were tbe objections to this very sal
utary arrangement, and why it may not be par
tially at least carried into effect To bring this
more fltblly before tbe minds of the Democrats
of York County, let us suppose tkat, acting
upon tbe hint of Mr. D., some on* of the an
setuoiy, s»y hw i*w*i pminiwn who propoaeu
the cheers, determinee to "go down South and

tting he arrive* he eonclndes he will take a stroll
in the town, daring which time one of tbe ever
vigilant Vigilance Committee discovers the name
upon the hotel register, and inqulree who this
Northern abolitionist (as he suspects him to be)
is, and finding no person to answer the inquiry
In a satisfactory manner, he proceeda to notify
his associates that he has caught a suspicious
person at the — Hotel, who, by the time our
friend returns, have assembled upon the steps
of the hotel, nil prepared to rid the town of a
Northern abolitionist. Aeeosting him in a roan
uer not over mild or genteel, the leader asks his
business. He replies that be hts none, except
to see the "peculiar institution" At home, and
especially how "the slaves are worked andclad
and fed." Here Is evidence enough fur any
Vigilance Committee, South of Mason and Dix
on's line, and they are now sure he Is a travel
ling abolitionist who reeks to overthrow their
darling iiutitution by inciting the chattels to
rebellion. In vain may he protest that such is
not his object—In vain declare he is an honest
lawyer from the State of Maine who has pro.
posed cheers for Douglas, and whom he intends
to vote for; this only makes his case worse,
and a burly Dreckinridge Democrat demands
the keys of his luggage that it may besearched.
To this demand he replies with true yankee
spirit, that his trunk contains only his cloth
ing, and is not open to the inspection of any
strange ruffian who may chance to accost him
and demand the key.
He is roughly handled, and the key taken
from him by force; in vain he appeals to the
landlord for help and protection—that gentle
man informs him that bis hotel shall afford no
protection to abolitionists.
Now it may have happened that in packing
his trunk for the journey he has wrapped a pair
of spare shoes, or with a prudent reganl for
cleanliness a cake of superior soap, In a copy
