Col. Fremont'* Letter of Acceptance.
Wo publish this morning the correspond

mittee appointed at the Philadelphia Conven
tion to inform him of his nomination for
The frank, open-hearted, honest character
pf the man has never been more fully devel
oped in anything lie has ever said or done
than in this brief letter of acceptance. He
states his views boldly and concisely, and
without the least possible chance of being
misunderstood or accused of not meeting
the great issue fairly and squarely, face to
Those who believe in the great principles
advocated by Col. Fremont will all " com
mend and applaud his manly letter. His
enemies will have a hard time in finding
about it any unfortified position whereat to
aim a successful shot.
Free Kama* Aid Convention.
We learn by a gentleman who was present
Ut the Convention in Buffalo yesterday, says
the Cleveland Herald of the 10th, that it
was well attended—delegates being present
from all the Free States, including the State
of Kansas. Gov. Reeder of Kansas, presi
ded, and made an effective speech.
Resolutions were adopted appointing a
National Executive Committee to consist of
one member from each State in the Union
in which suitable persons can be found who
will discharge the duties, and five members
in Illinois to reside in Chicago, which is to
be the head quarters for receiving and dis
bursing funds in aid of suffering Kansas.
Also to open communication to Kansas
through lowa at once, by way of lowa City
fo Topeka, and to petition the General Gov
ernment to establish a daily mail between
those points.
This is an important movement, as a Une
of stages and travel through lowa will not
only ensure safety to Kansas mails and set
tlers, but will do much to cut off the Mis
souri river trade, and the plunder of the
Missouri river pirates. The Border Ruffians
uiid the people of Missouri who tolerare and
countenance their outrages, will find tiie
sword they are using against Free *il and
Free Labor is two-edged. They wifi find
that every Free State man and woman t, v
drive out of Kansas becomes a missionin'}
of Freedom, and that every drop of blood
shed by the murderers of Free Men will be
like the blood of the martyrs—the seed of
Free States.
Among the Kansas dejegatc-s were tb.6
Messrs. Eldrtdge, proprietors of the hotel
in Lawrence destroyed by the Southern mob.
Mrs. Brown, wife of the Editor of the Her
ald of Freedom, now imprisoned at Le
eompton for treason, was also present.
Grand Lodge Proceedings —The Grand
Lodge of Minnesota, I. 0. 0. F., held its
semi-annual communication in this city on
Wednesday. The most important business
transacted was the election of a Grand Re
presentative t > the Grand Lodge of the
United States, to till the vacancy occasioned
by tiie resignation of D. Rohrer, Esq. The
election resulted in the choice of B. W.
Brunson, Esq., of St. Paul Lodge No. 2. All
the subordinate lodges of the Territory were
reported to be in a flourishing condition.
A Strike.— Several of the Irish laborers
who have been at work upon the buildings
and public works now in progress in the
city, were on a strike yesterday. A large
number paraded the streets in the forenoon,
endeavoring to add to their ranks wherever
they found any of their countrymen at work.
Movements of this kind have been rare in
our city, as employers have always beeu pre
pared to give the laborer the value of his
hire. As in all other instances of strikes
that we have ever known, where there is
not real aggression, we presume this one
will end with disadvantage to the strikers
instead of the stricken.
The Gas Works. —The contract for con
structing the buildings of the Gas Works
has been awarded to A. f uller <Sb Co. It
could not have fallen into better hands. The
work on the buildings is to .be completed
this season, and early next spring the busi
ness of laying the pipes will commence.—
During the winter, all the machinery and
material will be shipped from the Eastern
cities by way of New Orleans, so as to ar
rive here upon the opening of navigation
next April. In about a year from this time,
we may reasonably expect to see the princi
pal streets of our city and the .buildings ad
jacent lighted with gas. Persons who are
now constructing buildings upon these streets
will find it a matter of economy to place
their supply pipes in the wails ai;d ceilings
as their work progresses.
Change in theWeather.— After suffering
the most intense beat for many days, wc had
a thunder 6torm on h ednesday evening,
which has left us luxuriating in a most de
lightful North-Western breeze. This is fine
and serviceable.
Thanks.— We have before us the New
York Herald of the 11th, which is just two
days ahead of ihe mail of yesterday. For
this favor we are indebted to J. 11. Mathews,
Esq., of Mississippi, who arrived by the
Golden Era yesterday morning. -

roll their eyes as they cry “ sectionalism,”

Philadelphia, June 19.
Sir: A Convention of Delegates, assem
bled at Philadelphia on the 17th, 18th, and
19th days of June, IBSG, under a call ad
dressed to the people of the United States,
without regard to past political differences or
divisions, who are opposed to the repeal of
the Missouri Compromise, to the policy of
the present administration, to the extension
of slavery into free territory; in favor of the
! admission of Kansas as a free state, and of
restoring the aetion cf the Federal Govern
ment to the principles of Washington and
Jefferson, adopted a declaration of princi
ples and purposes for which they are united
in political action—a copy of which wp have
the honor to enclose—and unanimously
nominated you as their candidate for the of
fice of President of the United States at the
approaching election, as ihe chosen repre
sentative of those principles in this impor
tant political contest, and with the assured
conviction that you would give them full
practical operation; should the suffrages of
the people of the Union place you at the
head of the National Government.
The undersigned were directed by the
Convention to communicate to you the fact
of your nomination, arid to request you in
their name, and, as shey bglieve, in the
name of a large majority of the people of
the country, to accept it.
Offering you the assurance of our lngh
personal respect, we are, your fellow-cit

New York, July 8
Gentlemen : You call me to a high re
sponsibility by placing me in the van of a
great movement of the People of the Ignited
States, who, without regard to past differ
eixces, are uniting in a common effort to
bring back the action of the Federal Govern

Presidency, I should enter upon the execu
tion of its duties with a single-hearted deter
minaiion to promote the good of the whole
country, and to'ilireet solely to this end all
the power of the government, irrespective
of party issues and regardless of sectional
The declaration of principles embodied in
the resolves of your Convention expresses
the sentiments in which 1 have been edu
cated, and which have been ripened into con
victions by personal observati« ns and expe
rience. With this declaration and avowal. 1
think it necessary to revert to only two of
the subjects embraced in those resolutions,
and to tlics.e only because events have sur
rounded them with grave and critical cir
cumstances, and given to them especial im
I concur in the views of the Convention
deprecating the foreign policy to which it
adverts. The assumption that we have the
right to take from another nation its do
mains because we want them, is an aban
donment of the honest character which our
country has acquired. To provoke hostili
ties by unjust assumptions, would be to sa
crifice the peace and character of the coun
try, when all its interests might he more
certainly secured and its objects attained by
just and healing counsels, involving no less
of reputation.
International embarrassments arc mainly
the results of a secret diplomacy, which
aims to keep from the knowledge of the peo
ple the operations of the government. This
system is inconsistent witli the character of
our i nstitutions, and is itself gradually
yielding to a mere enlightened public opin
ion, and to the power of a free, pfess, which
by its broad dissemination of political intel
ligence secures in advance to the side of
justice the judgment of the civilized world.
An honest, firm and open policy in our for
eign relations, would command the united
support of the nation, whose deliberate
opinions it would necessarily reflect.
Nothing is clearer in the history of our
institutions than the design of the nation,
in asserting its own independence and free
dom, to avoid giving countenance to the ex
tension of Slavery. The influence of the
small but compact and powerful class of men
interested in slavery, who command one
section'of the country and wield a vast po
litical control as a consequence in the other,
is now directed to turn back this impulse of
the Revolution and reverse its principles.—
The extension of slavery across the conti
nent is the object of the power which now
rules the Goverriment; and from this spirit
has sprung those kindred wrongs in Kansas
so truly portrayed inoije of your resolutions,
which proves that the elements of the most
arbitrary governments have not been van
quished by the just theory of our own.
It would be out of place here to pledge
myself to any part cular policy that has been
suggested to terminate the controversy en
gendered by political animosities, operating
on a powerful class banded together by a
common interest. A practical remedy is the
admission of Kansas into the. Union as a Free
State. The South should, in mv judgment,
earnestly desire such a consummation. It
would vindicate its'good faith. It would cor
rect the mistake of the repeal of the Mis
souri Compromise; and the North, hav
ing practically the benefit of the agreement
between the two sections, would be satisfied
and eood feeling be restored. The measure
is perfectly consistent with the honor of the
South and vita! to its interests The fatal
act which gave birth to this purely sectional
strife, originating in the scheme to takefrom
Free Labor the country secured to it by a
common covenant, cannot be too soon dis
armed of .its pernicious force. The only ge
nial region of the middle latitudes left to the
emigrants of the Northern 'Sfcatesfor homes
cannot be conquered from the iVee Laborers
who have long considered it as set apart for
them in our inheritance, without provoking
a desperate struggle. Whatever may be the
persistence of the .particular class which
success of the unjust scheme it has partially
effected, I firmly believe that the greatheart
of the nation, which throbs with the patri
otism of the Freemen of both sections, will
have power to overcome it. They will look
to the rights secured to them by the Consti
tution of the Union as the best safeguard
from the oppression of the class which, by
a monopoly of the Soil and of Slave Labor
to till it, might in time reduce them to the
extremity of laboring upon the same terms
with the slaves. The great body of the non
slaveholding Freemen, including those of
tne South, upon whose welfare Slavery is an
oppression, will discover that the power of
the General Government over the Public
Lands may be beneficially exerted to ad
vance their interests and secure their
independence ; knowing thi3, their suf
frages will not be wanting to maintain that
authority in the Union which is absolutely
essential to the maintenance of their own
liberties, and which has more than once in
dicated the purpose of disposing of the Pub
lic Lands in such a way as would make'eve
ry settler upon them a freeholder,
If the people intrust to me the adminis
tration of the Government, the laws of Con
gress in relation to the Territories shall be
faithfully executed. All its’ authority shall
be exerted in aid of the National will to re
establish the peace of jhe country on the
just principles which have heretofore received
the sanction of thp Federal Government, of
the States, and of the People of both sec
Such a policy would leave no aliment to
that sectional party which seeks its'aggran
dizement by appropriating the new Territo
ries to capital in the form of Slavery, but
would inevitably result in the triumph of
Free Labor—the natural capital which con
stitutes the real wealth of this great coun
try, and creates that intelligent power in the
masses alone to be relied on as the bulwark
of free institutions.
Trusting that I have a heart capable of
comprehending the whole country, with its
varied interests, and confident that patriot
ism exists in all parts of the Union, I ac
cept the nomination of - your Conventi n, in
the hope that I may be enabled to serve use
fully its cause, which I consider the cause of
Constitutional Freedom. • • •.
Very respectfully,

New Paper. —“ The Wabashaw Journal”
is the nqme of a new paper just established
at Wabashaw, foot of Lake Pepin. It is pub
lished by 11. J. Sanderson; '“Democratic” in
politics, but mainl.' a-voted to the lodal de
velopment of the prominent point where it
is published. The Journal makes a spright
ly and handsome appearance.
Promptitude of a Member of Con
gress.—We quote from the Washington
correspondence of the New York Post, the
annexed account of the good time made by*
a Congressman—and a member from Ohio
at that—in order that lie might be on hand
in a crisis. It is a circumstance worth noting
now-a-days to see a member of Congress
bearing personal ills that they may perform
their public duty :
“Richard Mott, a venerable Ohio repre
sentative, wag lying ill of typhus fever with
some friends on L.o;ig Island, twenty-five
miles from New York. GidJings, not aware
of his ulness, telegraphs to him at New
York city, on Tuesday night to come on and
vote. The message fell into the hands of a
gentleman, who, till now, has been an old
line Democrat, but he carried out the com
mand to the letter, chartering a steamboat
at an expense of one hundred dollars, pro
ceeding that very night down Long Island
Sound, and bringing Mott to the city in time
to start for Washington the very next morn
ing. And so the staunch veteran, ill as he
Was, was duly in his seat all clay-yesterday,
vottng on every motion till the cause Of free
Kansas had triumphed.
qq ie semi-annual dividend of the
New York Tribune establishment amounts
to about 125 per cent, per annum on the
capital stock, or over sixty thousand dollars
for the past six months. The proprietors
have just purchased the Tribune buildings
from Mr. Thompson Price, the well-known
contractor, and the father-in-law of Mr. Mc-
Elrath, for $130,000, paying down 25 per
cent of ihe purchase money out of their
semi-annual earnings. They also donated
SI,OOO to the Kansas Aid Committee, and
SI,OOO to the Fremont Vigilance Committee,
leaving about 40 per cent, of the earnings t°
be divided aqjeng the stockholders.
Poi.iticians-in-Grain. —The friends, fol
lowers, and beleivers in James Buchanan,
says the New York Picayune, and the easy
offices and fat salaries which they hope to
obtain through his instrumentality, have a
sheaf of wheat on the badges which they
wear, because Buchanan calls his farm
Wheatland. This looks ominous in several
ways:—in the first place only drowning men
catch at straw-—and in the second place, a
sheaf of wheat is strikingly suggestive of a

The Committee report the following facts
and conclusions as established by the testi
mony :
First—That each election in the Territory
held under the organic or alleged territorial
law has been carried-‘by organized invasions
from the state of Missouri, by which the
people of the Territory have been prevented
from exercising the rights secured to them
by the organic law. * - •
Second—That the alleged Territorial Le
gislature was an illegally constituted body,
and had no power to pass valid laws, and
their enactments are, therefore, null and
Third—That these alleged laws have not,
as a general thing, been used to protect per
sons and property and to punish wrong, but
for unlawful purposes.
Fourth—That the election under which
the sitting Delegate, John W. Whitfield,
holds his seat, was not held in pursuance of
any valid law, and it should be regarded
Cnly ai the expression of the choice of the
resident citizens who voted for him.
Fifth—That the election under which the
contesting Delegate, Andrew 11. Reeder,
claims his seat was not held in pursuance of
law, and that it should be regarded only as
the expression of the choice of the resident
citizens who voted for him/
Sixth—That Andrew If. Reeder received
a greatpr number of votes of resident citi
zens than John W. Whitfield, for Delegate.
Seventh—That in the preseut condition of
the Territory a lair election cannot be held
without a new census, a stringent and well
guarded election law, the selection of impar
tial judges, and the presence T of United
States troops at every place of election.
Eighth—That the various elections held
by the people af tile Territory preliminary
to the formation of the state government,
have been as regular as the disturbed condi
tion of the Territory would allow; and that
the’Constitution passed by the Convention,
held in pursuance of said elections, em
bodied as the will of a majority of the
people. • '
As it is not the province of your commit
tee to suggest remedies for the existing
troubles in the Territory of Kansas, they
content themselves with the foregoing state
ment of facts. ■■■'*'

Dow Going It ! —Neighbor Dow, of the
Dakota Journal, at Hastings, endorses the
charge that Fremont is a member of the
Cuthojic church, and adds that “ his father
was a Catholic priest !” It is no disgrace or
disqualification to the Gol, to belong to this
or that church—but to slander the celibate
clergy of Rome in this manner—to say that
one of them bs,d a son born unto him, or a
daughter even—why, Mr, Dow, that is as
base and slanderous a Story as any Know-
Nothing of the Brooks and Fillmore stripe
could promulgate. We shaft lia’ve to de
