but were willing to atiek to the harpain, like
honorable m<*n. How was it with the other
party? Did they »tat>d by th » agreement'—
No, not content * ith three bilN out of the four,
not aatiafied iei/A fevrnty-Jh* ptr cent, of the
profit#, they wanted a U*t!t inore. l^ead.rg
hig newspapers caned tni- narpain attro
cion; meet.: ga were held in which it was
declared that the j>eoj !e would rot aland by
it Keligit.i J ipeis called upon the prvpU
to ripuJuiif the contract. Preachers denoun
ced it frwn the p»lptt, »nd advised their hear
e:» tu treat it as a nullity; pronounced it con*
Uirj to the lawa of God, and went ao far a>
tu say that whoever stood by it was in danger
of eternal punishment. " Repeal, repeal,"
run j out from a thouaand voice*, and the par-,
t\ which had given up the three-fourths of all
they had contended for, were being driven to
perf.ct madnevm, and declared in the moat so
lemn and determined manner, that sooner then
aubmit to the giving up of the remaining one
fourth, they woi.ld break up the partnership,
and appeal to the law of aelf-defcnce.
Conservative, sensible men, seeing the in
juattce of the courae of thoso un; rmciplcd
speculators, met together and resolved to
stand by the contract and fulfill it to the let-*
ter. " We are for a continuation of the part
nership," uid they, *• we are for I'mon, and
we call upon all in favor <1 f I'mon to join
us." Thia, a» a matter of course, did not
auit thoM who wanted the partnership to con
tinue, but wanted alao themaelvea to have all
lite profita. It compels thcin to either aJnut
that they art opyottd to tS» Union, or to git*
tn tu tkf bargtun. No wonder that they deny
tU necessity of Union Meetings.
Ohbw.— Th« Oregon Spectator of Oct.
I?, says: "We give it aa our decided opm
ioo, that in lees than two years' tune, Oregon
will be "knocking at the door" for admission
into the Union. We hope however, when
Uut period arrives, we shall not like Califor
nia, knock so long in vain. From our geo
graphical position, we cannot be troubled with
the aiavery question—that bane of the more
southern territories."

Wo cut the following extract (Yom Mr.
Caaa' letter, read at iho Union Meeting in
llith, with the cotnm nta thereon, frmn The
(Bangor) Jrflenmuan.
! " * 1 aaw a good deal of Una (diaunion)

the war in which we were then engaged, and
defending the conduct of the enemr, while
'that enemy waa harrowing our coaata ami

invocation lor the divine blessing in a period

" We thank Mr. Cm for Una truthful dec

Daniel Webster, lleo. Kvana, and other hlur
li^ht Federal will read the above, doubt*
lesa, with ' great sensation,' aa being a vivid
and faithful daguerreotype of themselves in
their younger days, and of their former serv
teea in behalf of the mtmtrJ of lh« Union, the
( onalituliun, and the Lawa. It la peculiarly
rifting that union and law-loving meetings
ahould b« held in which old Fed* may have
an opportunity to own up for their past sina
ami eaprrss allatliment to the Union, hut we
do not aee what peculiar advantage such meet
ings are to old standard DeOHrrataof the Jef

Mr. Caas fn the above s. ntiineat; we think
he theiem happily and truthfully hit upon the
true idea of the necessity of union meetings,

of holding meeting* lor the purp>«e of adopt

out, iiotwiihstanding they wrrc all " fitl
friends and »upp«>rter» " of democracy, and
"enniyfd its liuits,"and if in liHt), linn
had been more Union Meetings to prevent a
d »-jn on of the Democratic j«4My. Mr. t'as».
who is so highly cum pi i men ted by The Jef
It nunian, would now have been I'r< mdcnl,
instead of our being sublet to whig rule,—
and at the laat < oouressional election in Pe
rn b*c«»t District, a iVtmicrat would hate been
electcd instead of a Whig.
The Jedcrtontan fears that Union Mietwpa
will tend, " in the future Presidential Cam
paigns," to give " peculiar prominence " to
" leading fedrral jK>litic.an» who inay hereat
ter be in the field lor the suilragrs of the peo
ple against democratic candidatra." Such
tears are groundless. No true I>em«-crat
would think of aupi>orting a Federal fa mil
date for President, merely because he hap
]tns to be right ujhmi a single (juration, and
that not a political question.
We have do fears of getting up too much
i-nthuaiaam in favor of the Union; and we
hope that we shall never entertain such nar
row view* as would prevent ua from co-oj«e
ration with a jolmcal opponent in a just tuca
aure—or from approving him in the right,
leat we should give him " peculiar promin

What "We Know."
The Editor of the Cortland Inquirer, in hi*
remvks iijoo the call upon the Hun. II.
Hamlin to attend th« Union Meeting at Bath,
and Mjxm the fugitive »la»e law, aaya,—
I " Here, we aay what Lnov, Mr. Hamlin
1a o/»/*»ltd to thia law — holds it to be v&onsh
tuhonal, and would no sooner vote for, or
«wppvrt it, than he would any other unjuat or
infamowa art."
Now, judging from what Mr. Hamlin miii
> when hi thia town on Iii* way to Waahington,
••We inoif " that he ta «<»/ •• opposed " to
thia law, and that he </<w* not hold " it to lie
unconttilulional." And more, when an nidi*
vidua! remarked in hia prearncu, that he
•hould not consider the law especially objoe
I tioiul, did it provide that it should apply only
I to aurli slaves aa should run away from ami
alter the approval of the hill, Mr Hamlin
replied, •• nnthrr thnttU I, rrrn if it tilmdid
bui m ill apflu at ion to all that W run an ay
for thr hi ft hi t/f an. It waa unfortunate that
tin* pmviaioM wss not made ; he U-lieved etie
rights of the South, aa wrll aa of th« North,
should Iw regarded; he waa no Abolitionist,
dul not approve of th<'ir eourae, and believed
that though the bill was not all that the pro
pie of the North might deal re, yet aa it had
become a law of the land, under the cirrum
•tanm, it thouJI nil U mult J."
Now we ha«e a better opinion of the hon
esty and integrity of Mr. Hamlin aa a man
and a politician, titan to believe, that after
mailing, tn substance, the** atatrmenta, he
would go directly to Portland, and to a pollt
ical disonionist, whose course ho utterly con
demned, and state entirely to the reverse,
via. that he *' wu opfh>uU to the law," and
