creating sectional prejudices, and may; I
fear, if permitted to go on ia connexion

I think any candid man who is familiar
with the Listory of the slavery agitation
will at once admit that it is kept up mainly
with a view to personal political elevation.
j Demagogues, in view of the fact that the
non-slaveholding States have a majority of
the voting population, ttep up the agita
tion for the purpose of producing a state of
feeling which shall secure to one section
all the offices and patronage of the gener
My opinion is that at the Korjh, as well
as at the South, there is a majority of con
servative and patriotic men, who desire to
see this contest terminated and the consti
tutional rights of all parties honestly re
spected. Many noble examples of self
sacrificing patriotism exhibited themselves
at the North during the struggle which ter
minated in the enactment of the "compro
mise measures." For this adhesion to
what they deemed right these gentlemen
have been assailed with a fiend-like malig
nity at home, and, I regret to say it, hare
not been sustained as they deserved to be
by the South. I believe the time has ar
rived when it is due . to the best interests
of the country that men should speak out
and wear uo masks. If we are to have
peace and protection to our rights, it is
time we should know it. Every man who
aspires to political station should show his
hand boldly. If an honest determination
to maintain the constitution in all of i:s pro
visions against sectional demagogues, who
are prompted to action solely by the hope
of political power, is to become a disquali
fication for federal office, the sooner it is
known the better.
The man who has not sense enough to
see that the agitation on the subject of
slavery ts rapidly leading to the most dan
gerous consequences, or who, seeing this,
has not honesty and courage enough to set
his face against it, at iLe mk of defeat, can
never receive my vote.
In conclusion, I desire to say that I am
not a candidate for the presidency ; the
honors arc of a doubtful and nectinx char
acter the duties and responsibilities be
yond my capacity to meet.
I have, on a former occasion, expressed
openly, and upon due deliberation, my
I preference for one of the gentlemen spo

Letter from Iinn Eovil- Eaix .
"WAsmsGTOJf, May 20, 1852.
Sir: Your letter of the 17th instant is
before me. in which, after assuming that I
am a candidate for the presidency, you pr
ceed, in substance, to inquire whether, if
elected to that office, I would endeavor to
maintain and execute the series of meas
ures passed by the last Congress, known
as the "Compromise, and, especially,
whether I would veto any biil passed by
Congress to repeal, or in any way change.
the existing fuinuve-slave law, so as to
weaken its efficiency as a means of secur
ing to the southern people the rigiit, un
der the constitution, to secure their slaves
escaping to other States.
These are certainly very important ques
tions to each and all of which 1 hope ev
ery candidate for presidential honors will
give an explicit affirmative answer. The
public necessity which indce id the adoption
ot those measures may be appealed to with
even greater force in" behalf of their main
tenance and faithful execution.
In assuming, however, that I am a can
didate for the presidency, it is proper, for
me to say you greatly mistake my position
I certainly am not a candidate, nor can I
readily conceive a state of things in which
any such use of my name is likely to be
maae in convention.
I have the honor to be, most respectful
ly, your obd't serv't,

Letter from General Joseph Lane.
WasmsGT0, May 21, 1852.
Sia: The letter you did me the honor to
address me, of the 17th msL, is received
If my name is before the people for the
first office in their gift, it has been by their
action, and not mine. I neither solicit po
litical preferment nor shrink from duty.
nor have I any concealments, but acknowl
edge the tight that all hare "who would
elevate me to a place of high trust to know
my political opinions.
You inquire: "Should you benomina
ted by the Convention, . and elected to the
presidency by the people, m your admin
istration of the government will you sus
tain, and by any means within your power
enforce and have executed in all their parts.
the various acts of Congress, constituting
what is known as the Compromise, and es
pecially the enactments of that law relating
to the recapture by their owners of fugi
uve slaves?" I answer unhesitatingly,
I presume von allude to the fucitive
slave law "especially," because it is now
the only measure of the series to which
there appears to be any serious opposi
tion, ? indeed it is the only one, with a
single other exception, susceptible of alte
ration or repeal. The subject of the ren
dition of fugitive' slaves was an obstacle at
the period of the formation of the constitu
tion. The recognition of the power to re-
-i : i ' r . . .i
tnuui iucui was a pre-requiiie to -we es
tablishment of the Union, and was, and is.
an existing " Compromise imbodied into
the federal constitution itself," and making
a part of it. The laws of 1 793 and .1850
are but legal enactments to carry it into ef
fect. You inquire asrain- : " "Whether.
should you be elected President of the U
nited Suites, you would discountenance, by
every proper means, all attempts to dis
turb or change the provisions of that law,
whereby these provisions might . be made
less effectual for securing to the South
their constitutional rights in the possession
and enjoyment of their slave property: and
! shonld, Unfortunately, a bill be passed by
Congress modifying or changing the law
referred to. so as to impair its present valu
able enactments, would you, as President
of the republic, veto any such, bill?"
Without entering into the inquiry, or
making the assertion, yet it is possible that
6ome of the details of the fugitive slave law
are defective, even to carry out the inten
tion of its ' friends; but, because it was an
important feature in a compromise, and
now the only part, of a practical character,
that is susceptible of modification or repeal,
and, above all, because I would deprecate
and deplore " a renewaL-of agitation upon
that dangerous question, 1 would feel it
my duty to resist all attempts to re-open
that subject of legislation; and if, as Presi
dent of the United States, a bill "should.
unfortunately, be passed by Congress mod
ifying or changing the law referred to, 6o
as to impair its present valuable enact-
ments; I should prompuy veto it.
In conclusion, allow me to add, how
ever, that my opposition to interference, ex
ecutive or legislation, on the part of the
federal government, concerning the insti
tution of slavery, further than to carry out
the compromises of the constitution on
that subject, djd not commence with either
the concepdon or passage of the measures
embraced in the "Compromise" to which
you allude, but is general in its character.
and o: a date coeval wun my earnest en
trance into public life, (not now a short
one,) as lhe journals of the legislature of
Indiana will -tesulv. lhe events ot the
ast three years have but tended to ri
pen into a sett'.f d conviction an opiuion long
entertained, that if the subject of slavery is
allowed to enter tne halls of Congress, and
form an element in the general politics of
the country, iBtoust, 6ooner or later, prove
fatal to the peace, harmony, and integrity
of the Union. - -

My Dear Sir : I nad seen the- generous
and complimentary remarks originally
published id the New Orleans Courier, and
copied into several papers in this State, as
early, I think, as February, but it was not
until I received the Courier under the
frank of Senator McRae, about the 20th
March, that I had the first intimation of
the friend to whom I was indebted. 1
wrote immediately to Col. McRae for your
address, (not knowing that you were re
siding in New Orleans,) but he having left
Washington, my letter, followed him to
Mississippi, and it was not until yesterday
I received an answer. The delicate and
flattering tribute from that influential pa
per was highly gratifying, (notwithstand
ing my refusal to be a candidate,) and
doubly so when I ascertained its source. . '
With the exception of the year I was in

The undersigned proposes io sell the

Press, Type, Cases, Stands and alb other
articles constituting the printing establish

rTr Our Exchanges in this region
of country will please notice the fact
that the Palladium Office is for sale.
The lower story of the building in which the
Palladium office ia situated on the north east
corner of the public square. It ia 70 feet long, 22
feet wide, divided into a storeroom and a count

cellar. For terms apply at this office.
All persons indebted to the Palla
dium office will greatly oblige us by
paying our claims against them with

the business of the office should be set
tltid as early a3 practicable.
TO THE PUBLIC-
My health was not good when I e3
tablished the Palladium office and plac
ed myself in the position of Editor ;
but I was then flattered with the hope
that it would be entirely restored in
the course of one or two months.
This hope has not been realized, and
Lam now convinced oy my medical
advisers that recreation, relaxation
from the excitement and harrassment
of business, and relief from the duties
of my present position are indispensi
bletothe restoration of my health.
Under these circumstances perceiv
ing no other means that I can adopt to
obtain the physical ease and personal
freedom now absolutely necessary for
the recovery of my health I have
CONCLUDED TO SLSPEXD THE PCBLICATION
of tub Palladium after this week.
I make this announcement with feelings
of deep regret, as I feel very anxious to
be able to render efficient aid, and to
co-operate earnestly and zealously in
behalf of the democratic nominees in
the present Canvass. I trust that I
may yet be able before November to
do good service in some way, in the
great and glorious work of electing
democrats to the offices of President
and Vice President.
To all persons who have been my
friends since I started the Palladium,
I tender mv sincere thanks for their
kindness and good wishes.
Those who have been my adversaries
and have acted unjustly and unkindly
towards me (as many have) will please
bear in mind that I am entirely above
entertaining any hatred, malice or ill
will against them, and can say to them
in a spirit of charity go your ways,'
there is room enough in this vast beau
tiful world lor you and me. - -
. All persons who have paid for their
subscriptions to the Palladium for a
longer time than they have received it,
shall have the balance to which they
may be entitled, refunded to them in
cash whenever they desire it. '

We respectfully urge our democrat--
ic friends who ordered the printing o
several thousand pamphlets at - this
office last summer, to come forward
without further delay and pay for them
We were promised that' the money
should be ready for "us as soon as the
work was done ; but, so far from rea
lizing our expectations, we have waited
nearly a year, and only a small por
tion of the amount due has yet been
paid. . ' :'-V. . '. " .
As the pamphlets were intended for
public distribution, in the canvass, we
consented to have them printed at very
low : rates for cash but the cash has
not come to hand. We hope those who
assumed the responsibility will attend
to this matter and settle it without
giving us further trouble.

MEETING IX HOLLY SPRINGS.
We stated week' before last that we
had received information from different
parts of the county, which authorized
us to announce that a Democratic
Mass Meeting will be held at the Court
House in this place on - the
First Jfvnday in July.
Since then we have heard an expres
sion of opinion from a considerable
number of Democrats in regard to the
time for holding such meeting, and all
concur in the selection of next Mon
day. We hope there will be a full at
tendance, and that ths nominations of
Franklin Pierce and William R. King
will be heartily, cordially and enthusi
astically ratified by the meeting.
We invite attention to the excellent
communication on this subject, signed
"A Democrat," which appears in ano
npHE annual Examinauon of the Female
Institute will commence on Wednesday
the 7th of July and continue three days.
On Thursday night. Rev. Mr. Dod will
give a Lecture before his class and exhibit
interesting Astronomical phenomena with
the Magic Lantern. ' After the Lecture, if
the night is favorable, such as wish, will
have an opportunity of looking at the heav
ens with the Refractinrr and Reflecting Tel
escopes. On Friday afternoon, at the
close of the examination, the annual address
before the Institute will be delivered by
Wm. F. Stearns, Esq., of Holly Springs.

Early Cotton Blooms.
We have been shown a full blown
cotton bloom which, we are informed,
opened on the 22nd of June, on the
plantation of E. W. Upshaw, Esqr., a
few miles from this place.
A few days ago Mr. James Stephens,
manager on the estate of the late Dr.
Thompson, sent us a cotton bloom
which opened on the 2G th of June.
These are the earliest blooms we have
heard of in this county this season.
The Chulahoma Meeting.
When the proceedings of the Ratifi
cation Meeting, held at Chulahoma on
the 19th of June, were received at this
office we were not present, and being
too unwell to come to the office, we did
not learn that any person requested
that a copy should be furnished to a
nother office. If we had known of the
request before our paper was published
last. week, containing the proceedings,
it should certainly have been complied
with.. We do not remember that we
have ever failed (we know we nqve r have
intentionally) to comply with such re
quests when known to us.

violent hands on the late tottering cor

Permit me to make one sug
gestion to the Democracy of Marshall
through your valuable and interesting
paper. Whilst enthusiastic ratification
meetings have been held in every por
tion of the country, from the smallest
villages to the most populous cities,
the Court House bell has never been
heard to call together the Democracy
of this county. This fact is the more
astonishing when we reflect that eve-.
ry Democrat, regardless of the issues
that but recently divided the party,
give their most hearty and unqualified
approval to tho ttominees of the Bal
When some of ns suggested the cal
ling of a ratification meeting immedi
ately on the reception of the news that
the gallant Pierce and the veteran
King were our champions in the ap
proaching contest, others deemed it
best to postpone it until the Whig par
ty had given to the country their can
didates, and in this suggestion we all
acquiesced. And now since the con-

given to the countryv Gen. Scott a"
their candidate, the Democracy seem
to think that it is useless for us to have
a ratification meeting, vainly imagining
that the Whig party in Mississippi are
not sufficiently galvanised with Scott
ism as to bring a corporal's guard to
hi support. 1 warn the Democracy
to discard this lelief! For, although
there are some noble exceptions hi lite
Whig party, some whose patriotic feel
ings rise high above these of a partizan
character, and who will never cast
thtir suffrages for Seward's first, last
and only choice, Gen. Scott, yet, as a
party they are even now burnishing
their armour, and, before November
rolls around, will be firing both in our
'front and rear' and it behooves Dem
ocrats to be "wide awake and wateh-
Then 1 would suggest Monday next
the 5th of July, as a suitable time for
the holding of a ratification meeting,
and hope that it will meet with your
approbation, as it does with that of
many Democrats with whom I have
consulted. Why should we longer de
lay? Speedily and nobly is the great
and patriotic party responding in a
hearty and approving voice to the
nominees of our Convention. Never
before since the days of 'Old Hickory
has there been displayed such enthusi
astic congratulation and rejoicings in
the Democratic camp. Thousands in
the rreat rifiea of the North. South. .
East and West rallied at the first call
around our standard, borne on as it is
by the "Young Hickory of the Granite
Hills." All our great leaders have
been heard. Cass, Douglas, Dcc!ian n ,
Dickinson arid Marcy have spoken.
No dissenting voice is heard iu our
ranks. Everywhere the nominations
are hailed by Democrats as the bond
of Union and the messenger of victory.
Let us then in Mississippi commence
to prepare for the conflict, and bring
our united strength in November next
to the support of him who knows no
North, no South, no East, no West
under the Constitution,' and we will
overthrow and annihilate Federal whig
gery quicker than you can dispatch a
