Fakley, the individual who wished, and made a proposition in 1853, for fusion between Hunker whigs and hun leer locos, on the basis of electiug John W. Dana to the United States Senate, and Mr. Crosby, Goieraor, and who the came year used his utmost exertions to defeat, \V. P. Fessesden, addressed the " Boohoos" of the Biddeford Association, last|Wednesday evening. Other engagements prevented us from being present, but our Reporter says that " Boohoo" talking was as usual in the ascendant only " more so." Wilder was always great on the Boohoo question. He has saved the union down in New Caa tie every month in the year, and always had a plenty of '• old cogniac" to help him. We know "Wilder** out and out. Rum and slavery were always the Gods he wor shipped when he made a show of belonging to the whig party, we mean when he ob* ained whig nominations for ottice and then called on John Babson St Co., of Gun House memory, and other Hunker Democrats, to put him through. Last year he was a sort of a candidate for Congress, and the people run him under,—this year, ho is an "alliance'' candidate for Senator, pledged to he said in his speech, to do all in his power to repeal the Maine Law, and he stands about a* good a chance of being elected as did Jack the Giant Killer of get tins up to the moon on a bean pole,or as the man did of drawing a prize in Small's cali co lottery. Speaker Sewall in 1853, used to give a very vivid descripton of the differ ence between a hunker whig and a hunker loco. The latter he said was a very quiet and velvety, sort of an animal with sleek, fair and sweet countenance, whose footsteps when ho was travelling were never heard, while the former, was a|rou^h, hairy sort of a creature, whose hair about hie head stood ■even ways for a Sunday, and when he went through the bushes made a terrible crackling. This was about the time Wilder made his appearance at the State (louse regularly when the Senatorial question was up to defeat the election of Mr. Fessenden, a::d its application to Farley, or the descrip tion of the latter animal to him was readily perceived. We understand that Wilder said ho did not renounce any of his whig prin ciples, and we thiuk he does not as he has understood them. His iJea of whiggery was always fusions with hunker democrats for office, and to sustain rum and slavery. In speaking for the two now, he is follow ing his accustomed vocation. Let him go. lie will make republican voters. Samuel J- Anderson, also addressed the association, and went it strong. He is co in; to have the Liquor Law repealed at any rate, lie don't mean thnt it shall be so dif ficult to obtain ram ; no, uot he—and, oh terrible ! " if the Legislature don't do it," •o he says,11 the peoplo of the State will not leave one stono upon another of that, stone building at Augusta;" he goes in for j the knife and tomahawk — that Sam does, lie paid his respects to us, so we are told, and we don't find any difficulty in standing abn«e from such quarters. We are used to denunciations Irom rum aristocrats of all parties. The hall was decently filled, and, as us ual, a goodly number of "Shebogans" was present—perhaps one-half or one-third.— Upon tho platform, either acting as Vice Plesidonts or as specimens of the party, wore Job Berry and Emerson York. At a side table was the Irish editor of the Dem ocrat. Chapman did the introducing, and expressed his satisfaction that there were no ladies present. He probably nnderstood the character of tho speaking that the aadience might expect. OUR CITY AGENCY. George H. A Jams, Ksq., so wa learn, ' mail.* a «ort of report al the meeting of the Biddeford Association, on Saturday, relative to tho operation! of our City Agency for! the tale of intoxicating liquors for medici nal and mechanical purposes; out of thia report, some very large stories have been mails with rcspect to tho amount ol liquor ■old. A day or two aince, being at the Pool, we were told by a gentleman of our acquaintance " that within seventy days af ter the establishment of the agency, there were 4780 package* of liquor sold, " and that the buyers were chiefly men who pro fessed to be opposed to rum drinking, and who were 4i Shebogans,'' as ho termed them; and he said that theae facts were es tablished by Mr. Adams' report. To as certain the facts, wo have examined care fully the books, and are prepared to state the real truth in regard to the matter. The Liqnor Agency was opened May 3, and a J careful examination of the books ahow that in the space of niiw/y daya, not urmty ! days, there were leas than four thousand •ales, and that the wbole amonnt received for the liquor sold for the quarter was 8 Sl3. 45; being an average of only about nine dollara a day; and this, too, in a city where the population is near, if not quite, 8000, and where various trades and occupations •re carried on which require the use of al-1 cohol (or mechanical purpoaea. Admitting the nnmber of sales to have been 4000, the whole number of gallons aold being laaa than 600, of all kinds, it would be but a1 pint to each individual pnrchaaer, within th« 3 months—and as to this liquor having been purchased by any particular iet ot men, the story is perfectly ridiculous. Up on examining the books, we find that the temale operatives in the mills, who purchase alcohol generally **' pint at a time, rarely more than that, for bathing purposes, are the moat numerous purchasers ; and so far as the purchases of others are concerned, they are made indiscriminately by our citi zen*. The names of men who are oppos ed to the Maine Law, appear as olien on the books as do those of its friends, and we no-1 ticed that some of the warmest members of the Biddeford Ascociation, and occasional . spouters there, had got the " medicine " for } " sick Democrats," as often, and a little | more so, than their friends •• the Shebo jjans." We hare stated these facts in or-, der to [slop some of the idle rumors and ! misrepresentations, which, originating in ; partisan zeal in the first place, have increas- ( ed as they have passed Irom mouth to mouth, until at last they cause even well minded men to call for the facts. The rum men are striving desperately to make a lit-, tie capital out of the manner in which the j Agency is conducted; but their stories when probed, really amount to nothing—as the facts we give abundantly prove. , (ET^ Three lull columns of the Democrat this week is devoted to a slanderous account of the Republican Convention held here j Wednesday, Augnst 15. Almost every con ceivable lie and misrepresentation is worked into the article, and spewed out by the writer, who has been allowed the uso of the editorial columns to abuse and malign the Convention. We shall not occupy space in pointing out his misrepresentations. He squirms well, but not so bad as he and his friends will before the canvass is over. If lying, deception and gross personal abuse would insure the triumph of tho friends of Rum and Slavery, they would most certain ly achieve a brilliant victory. But the peo ple know with whom they are dealing and the efforts of these slanderers do bat recoil upon themselves. There was a large num ber of the most intelligent and candid men of York County at the Convention, and they know all the facts respecting it. In its doings the friends ot Rum, Slavery and Popery see 41 the hand writing upon the wall," and they act with a desperation wor thy or the masters they serve. The great burden of this long articto it to ihow that the nominations made were brought about by a concert with the American Party.— Why, bless the foolish writer who speaks for the exhausted editor of the Democrat, and with a smartness which contrasts most pleasantly with the general stupidity of the real editor, this Democrat has been telling the public every week for months that the K. N. party and the Republican is identical " one and indivisible," and if this bo so why should should not the nominations be satisfactory all round ! The whole trouble is that the nominations of this Convention are likely to be successful, and this is an awful prospect to the writer of the article. Wo can imaginejhis feelings, but wo know of no " balm in Gillead" for him. The peo ple of York County have got tired of old , cliques, and cannot be dragooned into voting ; for Hum and Slavery by party leaders or will they believe their misrepresentations. Tlio witha uf ibe article closes his article by asking the question, "What will the people of York do with thaao nominees ?" • We must say in answer, in view of all the indications, that they will elect thorn and by i a triumphant majority. Those Casus. Every Rum and SJarery press in the irtato are stigmatizing us as n " man of blood," because we called for chcert for the Portland Rifle Guards, at the sugges tion of Mr. Willej, at the Buxton meeting. Go on gentlemen, wo aro not remarkably chicken hearted. Wo have no sympathy for rioters, or the knaves in broadcloth who urge theui on, and wj are not afraid that our char acter for humanity will Buffer in tbo cstirna-1 tion of honest men in consequcnco of any thing which the instigators and apoligists for riots can say of us. If there is a poor crea ture on earth it is the mean specimen of a man who, after instigating his fellow men to deeds of violence, as did both the Editors of the Argus and the Stato of Maine, tries falsely to hold the fiiendsof poaco accounta ble for the blood shedding they themselves occasioned, and next to these moral lepers are , the apologist of riots and disorder, like the the editor of the Democrat, and other edi tors of the Democratic papers in tho State, who copy the vile stuff printed by the insti gators of riots, and thus become accessories | in the crime of promoting civil disorder. ' We did call for cheers for the Portland Ri Ho Cuards—these soldiers were called out to suppress tho most cowardly mob ever seen in Maine : while others faltered, they rallied 1 around the civil authorities and aided them in suppressing th« riot, and as we loro peace anil bate disorder, so wo wero willing to tes testifj our approval of the conduct of these soldiers by calling for cheers for them, and these cheers were rousing ones. We h»ve no sympathy with John Robbins, and had the Editors of the State of Mains, or Argus, shared in his LiU, after their wicked attempts to Incite a mob, they would bare been de serving of no sympathy from the public. On their beads rests tho responsibility of the death of John Robbins. A Pikrcc Whiu.—la 1W2 thero were torna of inch non-descripts to bo found.— One of them, John Jameson, Esq., of Cor* nish, «u nominated to the olfice of Sena tor, by the baker'* dozen of Heed Whig* who assembled in Saco last Wednesday ^ and went through the farco ol making nomination*. Mr. J. wa» too strait a whig to vote for Gen. Scott, and to evinced hig fidelity to Whiggery by voting the Pierce tiltfctorial ticket, *o we are informed. Con sidering this, wo regard hi* nomination as eminently41 fit to be made," but as to voting for it, that to altogether another qaestion. Horace Porter, also, the Chairman of the meetiug, was so troubled with strait whig gery, or something else, that he could not vole for Uen. Scott in 1852. If there are among these strait whig* those who would not relish the idea of being entirely sold to the Rum and Hunker Democracy, we ask them to reflect upon the position in which the leaders of this movement seek to place them. What a pleasant businea* it must be for those who have been sincere whig* heretofore, voting to keep the old dynasty that hat ruled this county for years, Mcln tire, derrick, Chadbourne, Leland k Co., in the ascendent, and aiding in continning " the line of succession." We would ask •nch if it to not about time that somebody 1 whose nam* is not Shaw or Mclntire should toil least eligible to office? Judge Wella a Nebraika man. " Esq. Leland" of Saco, in the Augusta Convention that nominated Judge Wells as i candidate for Governor, in defining the "nominee's" position on the Nebraska question, said : •lama Ntbraik man, and a lull believer in the Nebraska bill.' ' I have an intimnte acquaintance with our nominee, and I knore that he vitvs the mailer as I Jo. I know that with me he believe* in the theory and principles of the Nebraska bill.' Mr. Leland's word, ordinarily not the best in the world, when political subjects are a! issue, has recently been"" made good by Judge Wells himself. At a Hunker meeting held in Bath on Saturday,at which there were less than two hundred, the Judge, who has been trying to ignore the question of Nebraaka, as provided in the resolutions of the Convention that nominated him, came out and went the whole figure for the theory and principles of the Nebraska Bill, speaking substantially as follows ac< cording to the Bath Tribune. •' Touching (he Kansas anJ Nebraska question, he would have the North and West lei the South alone. Should the/ unite against the South, disunion must of course follow. The South should be let alone—they only wanted their half, their equal voico in national affair*—that was all. \\ hy what has the South ever done to us 1 What ? nothing, absolutely nothing; we at the North have always been imposing upon her and ac'ed the part of lomplainant, while she has merely acted as defendant, main taining her rights* " He remarked, there is the poor South, (umbtrtd with 3,300.000 slaves, and we at the North receiving all the profit of their labor. * With the South separate from yuu, the grass would grow green in your streets, your ships would lie rotting at your wharves; the South would go to Europe for ships to carry their cotton, and famine and pinching poverty would usurp the place ol plenty, luxury and elegance.' Would we abuso these self-martyring philanthropists of the southern plantations, by depriving them of their inherent rights to govern and controll their own [the whole] ground? As much right had tne Nor n to send men to Kansas, as they have [the Southl to come and col onize our State. Should they attempt that, we should ol course rise and expel them; that's what is being dono by the Southern ers in Kansas/ Why trouble ourselves about the Fugitive Slave Law? We are so far removed from the sphere of its opera tions, it has no inteiest to oa." So Judge Wells gives up Kansas to the slave power calling it " their own ground." This territory which was onco secured to freedom, he gives over to slavery—and he reiterates the old Bohoo cry of Disunion. Tho Portland Advertiser thus comments upon this llunkeyism of Judge Wells. Can it be possible that Judge Wells gave vent to such consummate toadyism as this 1 Read every sentencoover by itself, and see if even McDonald ever bent so low in sub servience to tho slave-power. He would have the South let alone to extend slavery, make and unmake compromises (or that purpose, and do whatever she pleases—and the North must submit! The poor South is laboring wholly for our benefit—and why should we thwart her ? And it she expels our emigrants by mob law frum Kansas, | she is doing it for tho sake of our ships and , M luxury and elegance''—and so let her do j it! She was a little fast, perhaps, as n matter of policy, in repealing the Missouri I Compromise—but then she " should bo let i Mone," or •'disunion must of course fol low !" We aro really unwilling to believe that such were the expressions of Judge Wells, so unworthy and degrading are they. Hutj we cannot do tho Hath Tribune the injui-' lico of attributing any misrepresentation to its report. If, however, it is not substantial ly correct, wo trust wo shall hear precisely what the Judge did say on this topic. The people want to know if a candidate for Gov. I of Maine, at this time, has uttered anything \ hit the above expressions attributed to him. j They want to know if the spirit of them is nt all liks his spirit—if the principles there 1 laid down are such as he has the effrontery lo maintain. Let this matter bo eleared up. Strait Whijfgery Scouted by ita Lead ers. Just as wc have all along predicted, the leaders of the strait whigs, Farley, Poor 4c co., those who have been most blatant about fusion, declaring they would never give up their whiggery, have at last come to an »in Jetstanding with the huukerdemocracy,and are forming alliances—4 alliances,"with tho rurn and slavery democrats.In Lincoln coun ty the twowings of tho rum and slavery party held conventions the same day in Wiscas sett, and, through committees of confer ence, an " alliance " was perfected, and a strike tor tho spoils, made by the nominati on of a Senatorial and County ticket, com posed of equal proportions from the rum and hunker whigs and the rum nnd hunker democrats. Cochran — the samo Cochran who made such a splurge in the Reed con vention, about our treachery — was there, and helped engineer the alliance along.— Hon. E. W. Kariit, the great high priest of Lincoln strait whiggery, with another strait whig, was put on the Senatorial tick et with Hon. Manassah Smith and another hanker democrat; and for County officers there was a division made between rum whigs and rum democrats. Farley and bis Lincoln supporters, including his man Cochran, always went for rum, theoretical ly and pratticalty, and the alliance is very natural. "Men who think alike are going together; " and we are glad that the kinks in politics are getting out. The whigs of this State never had any sympathy with the rum and slavery notlcns of Farley, Coch ran and men of that ilk, who wore " in and out " of the whig party just as their love for rum and slavery preponder ated, and wo are now glad that they have at last found their proper place and the company they like. E. W. Farloy and John Babson, of gun-house memory, have liko tastes and like sympathies, and we are glad that tho law of social affinities has at last vindicated itself. We notice that there are similar indicati ons of auch " natural alliances " — and why should not lovers of rum and haters of frec dom vote together in other parts of the Slate, among the leaders of the Reed and Wells party. In Franklin County an alli ance convention it called, and in other parts of the State measures for similar meetings , have been proposed. We are glad to see .' the law of social affinities at work — to aee the ram leaders of the several detachments •t last doing nomething more than taking "a imile together,'• and banding themselves together to preserve their favorite beverage fro in the destruction which most certainly iwaits it. We apeak of the leaders — for ive know that when election day comes ound the people of Maine never will fol ow men who are practically as well »s the- j >retically opposed to temperance. These1 alliances between audi men as Farley & co. and Levenseller of Lincoln, and, like alliances in other Counties, will open the| eye* of honest men, and they will see the work which these leaders have laid out, and turn away from ita performance with dis-' gust and contempt. So, geollemen, go on. I Band together, you hunker leaders, for: rum and slavery, and let the people unite for temperance and freedom, and when the day of trial comes, the people will tricmph. It cannot bo otherwise. ATROCIOUS SLANDERS. The editor of (he Democrat, in an article upon the nominees of the republican party in this county, thus atrociously slanders them: Seven names aro to be borne on the coun ty ticket at the next election, and tho Al lowing sketch of the fusion nominees for tho places will be appreciated by thoso per sonally acquainted with them : Two of them are renegades from the dem ocratic party—one an unsuccessful appli cant for place under the present national administration—in morals and temperance as good as the average of those whom the democratic narty has supported for office, as it did tnem, as long as it thought they deserved ; but in respect to these virtues, they are no better than the democratic nominees they now oppose. Their old par ty never asked them to stand in such bad company as they aro in now upon the fu sion ticket. Anouior ol tnem is known to do an ha bitual drinker (and at times tn txctss,\ of intoxicating liquors—and ia withal not Tree from well founded chargea of gambling. Another of them is either an habitual oi occasional drinker of liquor, and that, too, to stupulity—and has withal been guilty of doing that which overy virtuous family re gard* as the deepest disgrace and wrong which can be inflicted upon it in the person of one of Its members. Another of them ia charged with drink ing much more than the most liberal Maino Law liquor agent would think was requir ed for medirinal purposes ; but his position as an officer in a christian church, lends us to hope it is not true. We shall at once investigate the charge, and inform out read ers oi the result. Another is of that class called mail law yers, kind of Irtthts on the body public— which often thrive where more honorable practioners would starve—has stood so high in tiro parlies at the same time as to take a prominent part in two conventions, on two successive days, each of which nominated a county ticket. At present, we suppose ho belong* to thrte parties, one of irnich meets in secret and cheats the others. He has olten been severely lectured by the Judaea in open court for his want of truth fulness. Another of them, and tho last of the seven, is a respectable gentleman of tho old free soil parly, and has probably receiv ed the mark of the beast, or ho would have been rejected as others of his party have been. The above aro facts and aro worthy of consideration by tho honest electors of York County. Wo copy tho above to show the ilcipcra ation of tho friends of rum and slavery. The editor of the Democrat makes these cowardly charges by the wholesale. He gives no names ; lie does not make specif ic charges. We pronounce them false in general and false in particular. The men whom ho slanders, and against whom he throws out these slanderous intimations, arc well known, and tho reputation which they enjoy Jn tin community will'shield tltom from this common liar nnd libeller, the ed itor of tho Democrat. Electors or York County, to what des peration must the friends of rum and slav ery be driven, thus to blacken, by dastardly insinuation and cowardly innuendo,the char acters of upright and reputable men. Tin: Mask orr. John A. l'oor, tho ed itor of the State of Maine, has thrown off tho mask of strait whiggery and come out an open advocate of Hunker and Rum De mocracy. Hear him : As tff cannot reach thz Nebraska isjue di rectly, this year, and can meet the other is sues, we are lor carrying out our principles, as far as practicable, hach man and each community must necessarily determine for itself its courso in reference to the coming State election. IFe are not to be deterred from voting for any good men trho trill car ry out our views in the Legislature of Maine, by any cry of Nebraska or any foreign issue. We go in for righting things at homo, and allowing those moro remote to wait their turn. ll in quito apparent thut in some poruous of tho Stale the Whigs will unite in sup porting anti-Maine Law Democrats, for the Legislature, without in any way compro mising their position as Whigs or endanger ing the Wilis organization. Thero is no fusion or union excopt on a single issue for a particular purpose, with no intention of giving up any of tho distinctive principles of tho Whig party. We unite to carry out one principle of the Whig party, without turrendoring any other." Such are the uses to which John A. Poor designs to put strait whigs; get them to vote " for anti-Maine Law Democrats for the Legislature:" This is the invitation to which he sends out to strait whig*. Well we could expect nothing better from Poor. Last year he talked bi£, swaggered and foamod against tho slavo power when the Whig Convention was held, did not get nominated for Congress himself and voted for Wells, and had tho satisfaction of finding himself one of a minority of three^thousand. The poor affair will be still worse this fall. His mask isotf. WTho Resolutions (of the Republican Stale Convention,) were all prepared, were agreed upon at once, but kept back till near ly sundown. When they were read in I)eering's Oaks, some ono, (we believe it was Mr. Soammon, of Saco.) cried out, " trhert it the Maine Lair but liia voice was drowned in the contusion causcd by the cries of "question" "question." Then it was that the fearless and intrepid Mr. Wis well, of Portland, took tho platform and de manded " in the name of human rights," a heating for the Maine Law. Mr. Witwell said ho was not to be silenced by the cries of '• question," " question."—State 0/Maine of 20th inst. Last week we corrected the error of the Slate of Maine in ascribing this call /or the Maine Law to Mr. Wiswell, still the paper persists in repeating the falsehood. It was Mr. Fatwell of Rockland, who called for the Maino Law resolution, and Mr. Wiswell of Portland, did not speak until a long time after the resolve passed. The whole story of the State of Maine, declaring that Mr. Wiswell said that" he would not be silenc. ed by the cries of " question, question," U a sheer fabrication. Is it possible for the editor of the State of Maioo to tall the truth, we ask again. ! Kircia !

There hus boeu printed at oar office a sheet containing a aynopais of the principlea and aims of the American party as anderatnod by E. Z. C. Judson. Tho publication of the sheet in question, at our usual rates ol job printing, has boen seized upon by the supple■ [ ment editor of the Democrat for the purpose of making a littlo capital, out of Iho fact of its having Wen printed in our office. Tho jheet is headed as staled by the Democrat, it does not purport to be an Extra " Union and Eastern Journal," and the name of the authur is given at length. Not a single copy of it has been sent from our oilico to our sub scribors, though we should havo gladly sent them all a copy oould we have afforded the expense. We printed the document for ita author, and wo take this occasion to say wo have read it carefully, and there is nothing in it which wo should object to sending broadcast over tho land. It is vigorous in style, manly in thought, freo Irom all slang, and in the main, sound in principle. The foreign heart of tho editor of tho Democrat may find fault with it, but all truo Americans will cordially approve of tho sentimonta it contains. We extract from it tho following and commend it to the attention of all who do not wish to see foreign influences prepon derate in our country. What aro the principlea of this American party ? first anu foremost that Americans nv | birth-right, by nn inherent lore for their native land, by their knowledge of their con stitution and tho institutions ol th^ir coun- > try—by tho sacred memory of their fathers nrc entitled to rule nnd are capable of ruling in their own land ! That thovnre determined to do so. That they and they alone shall sustain tho honor of our flagnbroad.nnd tliev aro able to maintain it at homo. That until they garrison our forts, man our vessels and fill our offices at homo and abroad, our coun try is not safe and will not bo respected or represented as a nation of free, independent and intelligent people. Secondly. That we stand firm as a surge- > beaten rock in opposition to iho overwhelm- j ing tido of foreign nnd pauper immigration which is rolling in from tho old world— j which has increased our taxes, decreased tho prico of labor, brought misery nnd suffering into over-crowded cities—filled to overflow ing our poor-houtes and caused iia to multi ply them throughout tho length and breadth of our land ! Wo oppose the systematic in troduction of criminals from the prisons of tho old world! Thirdly. We opposo tho naturalization of foreigners nnd their equalisation with our own citizens before they havo been twenty one years on our soil, and have proved them selves loyal to our flag, obedient to our laws and have beoome acquainted with thenaturo and intent of our institutions. Because, nover having been free, they do not properly understand tho value nnd uses of freedom and are calculated rather to abuse than prop erly to use liberty. Bocauso they havo been willing and subservient slaves to despots at home, and never havo dared in imitation of our fathers, to resist tyranny and turn upon their oppressors. Because if they aro good men, appreciating our hospitality, thoy will rather learn of us than assume themselves to bo teachers nnd rulers. Because, ns a geno ral tking they will not bocomc Americanized, but wish hero to retain thoir own prejudices, customs, languago, &c., forming cliquos an tagonistic to our laws, customs nnd habits, j ltecauso they oppose tho system of education which has enlightened our land, fostered ro I ligion, advanced art nnd science, nnd mado us stand as u whole people intellectually in uilvance of nil other nations! Fourthly, wc oppose with our wholo hearts and nil the strength which God pirns us, the insidious aims of the churoh of Homo to ob tain political and sectarian power in this Be, public. Because it hns cursed and blighted nil countries whero it has succeeded in be coming connected with the Government.— Bocauso it is tho condensation of all intoler ' nnco—bccouse its Head assumes supremacy over all nntions; because its Archbishops, Bishops and Priests in this and other coun tries are sworn to opposo, subvert, and do all tho/ can to destroy all governments he raticil who do not acknowledge tho Pope as their suprome ruler and God's representative on earth. Bcciuso if n murderer or a thief or criminal of any grade confesses his crime to them, they do not delivor him up to jus tice, but for pay nhsolvo him of crime, be coming thcmsclve* by its concealment accesso ries in the crime, and encourage bim by so doing to commit luoro crimo. Bccauso they I rear nunneries, where, inside of iron doors and grated windows helpless nnd Innocent girls nnd women who hnvo committed no crimo are detained as prisoners—whero there aro secrets and mysteries which they dire I not reveal to tho outor world, whero thero nro nauseous dungeons and mimoless graves! Because thoy will not permit their pcoplo to bceomo educated witli ours, exercise over them unlnwlul restraint, deprive them of the holy soriptures, urgo upon them hatred to ua a* protestnnts and Christians, derido our laws and institutions, and control their I minions politically as well as spiritually!— I Becauso all history proves them to bo dan gerous foes to human and religious liberty full of intrigue, blood-thirstiness, cunning and all manner ol evil! Fifthly, believing tlint charity uepma m homo, wo nro in favor of other countries sup porting their own paupers instead of dumping them in here to burden us. Wo aro in favor of protecting nnd cherishing the industry of J our own citizens, and keeping them up in I decency and comfort, rathor than hy encour aging alien paupers to bring our citizens down to a level with thorn ! Sixthly, that we are bitterly and fervently opposed to tho designing knaves, who, tak» ing advantage of the ignoranco of aliens ad mitted too easily to a participation in the rights of suffrago, have used them through bribery, corruption nnd their oasily cxcitcd prejudices, as tools for their own personal advancement, utterly regardloaa of the good of the country or the safety of our llopublio Seventh and lastly, that we do not ossumo to Interfere with the constitutional rights of any State, that wo do not assume to inter fore with slavery where it existi, but we liernly insist that the Missouri Compromise of 183) wns sacred and waa only broken by faithlessness and treason, that tho extension of slavery upon soil hitherto free, is a black and damning shame upon our wisest states men. such as Clay, Webster, Dell, Houston, Benton, Adama and others, good men and peat, who have grown groy in their coun- i try'a servico, or gone down honored and la-' uented to the gruvc. That though slavery is a heritage which cannot be atonce and in stantly cast off either with justice to tho un prepared slaves or to the master who is as unprepared for instant abolition as they, that it is an institution to bo deplored—1st be* causo it contradicts that portion of our de* duration of Independence which declares that "all men are born free and eqnal,"— next, because it gires.otbcr nations and peo ple good reason to inveigh against us, who calling ourselves free, yet buy and aell men 1 under oar flag.

Letter from Hon. Kenneth Bayner. Iluir Jamtt Campbell, of Penntyhania, a leading Catholic, came to compou ont of Prmdmt Pierct't Cabinet. No little astonishment was created at the limo, at the appointment of James Camp. Ml of Pennsylvania, to & place in the Cab inet at Washington, by President Pierce.— The following letter, fiom Hon. Kenneth Rayner of North Carolina, eiplains the whole matter, and reveals the fact that a corrupt bargain waa entered into between Pierce and the Pope at Rome, that he waa to have the Catholic vote of this country, provided ho should give the Catholic church a seat in his Cabinet in the person of whom ever bis Pontilloial Highness should nomi nate. It seems by this letter, that Mr. Bar renger, our Minister to Spain, was distinct ly informed at Madrid that Mr. Campbell was appointed long before any notice of the construction of the Cabinet was known in this country. Let Americans read and judge if attempts to countmact dangers from foreign influence in this country have been made any loo soon.

Raleigh, N. C , Thursday,) July 19, 1855. J Mr Pear Sir : I have received youra of the 16th inst., in which you refer to the denial by the Union newspaper of the truth of the statement (first spoken of by me in my speech nt Washington, afterwards by vou in your oration of the Fourth) of Hon. Daniel M. Barringer, our late minister to Spain. JMr. Uarringor lirst mentioned mis mauer lo me last Winter, in Kaleigh, ami I have ■ince taken occasion to allude tu it several times in delivering popular addresses.— About four weeks since on my icturn from Philadelphia, I met Mr. IJarringer in Balti* more, and in Ihe course of conversation with him I mentioned the (act that I had taken occasion to apeak publicly of what he had said lo mo about the I'ope's Nuncio, nt Madiid, hiving stated to me before he (Mr. B.) had heard, and before the news of the same had reached Madrid, of the formation of Mr. Pierce's Cabinet, to wit: That Mr. Campbell of Pennsylvania, a member of ihe Roman Catholic Church, was to be one ol Pictce'a cabinct. This wa« as I had received the statement from Mr. B. in the first instance, and it was thus that I had apoken ol it. I askeJ Mr. I). if I hail represented him correctly, far that I should probably speak of it again, and I wi*h?d to bo sure, that I might give the statement correctly. Mr. H. replied that I had stated thu matter correctly, and then went on to relate tho occasion and incidents of this remark to him by the Pope's Nuncio. A few days since I received a letter from Mr. Barringer, dated " Niagara Falls, July 6, 1855," in which alluding lo the fact that he had lately seen published a synopsis of my speech in Washington, in which I was reported as having mentioned the matter in terms somewhat varient fiom those in which he stated it to tne. and then he (Mr. B.) goes on to reiterate what ho had twice be foro stated to me. I now will quote to yon, verbatim, the language n«c(l by liitn, in an extract from this letter, just received, (to wit.) " Before I had any authentic and certain now* of the formation of the Cabinet, and ■till while it wn* a subject of conjecture at the Court oi Madrid, he (thu Pope'* Nuncio) told me that Judge Campbell, of Pennsyl vania, waft appointed, and that ho wax a Catholic, which was the first intimation I had, either of his appointment or his relig ion." This is the statement, a* I had given it, when alluding to it in public ; although it might have been slightly varied in news paper reports, and this, 1 think, establishes a charge, long sinco made and belioved by thousands, that there was an undtrtlmuling, to call it no worse name, that the Roman Catholic vote should be given to Mr. Pierce, and that he in his turn, should give to that Church a seat in his Cabinet, as well as mnny other high positions. You are at liberty to make any u«o you please of this letter, in vindication of your self against the charges of falsehood in the Union newspaper, inasmuch as you based your statements on my authority. Yours, very truly, K. Ratncb. Death of Hon. Abbott Lawrence. Wo regret to l>o compelled to announce the demise of the Hon. Annorr Lawremk, who expired, nfter a Ion;; nnd painful illneu, at his residenco in Park si root, in this city, at n few minutes after 11 o'clock on .Vutur* day forenoon. This melancholy event has been for sotno lime anticipated ; and the public desiro which has been continually manifested for Mr. Lawrence's recovery, has fullr demonstrated tho high estimation in which he was held by his fellow citizens, flis death does not leave n pap in tho com mercisl world alone. Thcro, indeed, his integrity, sagacity and succesi made him * man of tnnrk; but his systematic boncvo lenco, his princely benelaclions to tho eausn of scienco, his fiilelit^r to tho interests of the Stato nnd of tho Nation, won lor hiin a rep utation in other tSan cuiamcrrial circles.— Ho wus not tho lea*t remarkable of a very remarkable family, nil but one of which aro now gathered to their fathers. What large influences these men have exorcised—how much Massachusetts is indobtod to thorn for hor signal prosperity—how many of her great mercantile Interests wero created by their energy, it is not necessary for ui to re count. They leave behind them tho noblest of monuments—two flourishing citios, ono of which besrs thoir name, and both of which sprang almost at onco into miraculous prosperity, by tho magic of their sagacity and forethought Air. adoou Lawrence wr.n i>orn id uro ton, Mu«., in December, 1792. Hi* educa tion was thnfc ot the common school in that Tillage ; and li« whose wealth has since cre ated the most excellent school of science in the country, hod, in his own youth, nono of thoso advantages which are now so liberally afforded to the young. Ho catne to Boston | in 1808, and «**s first engaged, in connec tion with his brothers, in importations, which were subsequently given up for the important manufactories at Lowell. Mr. Lawrence's succcss in business is well known, and ho leaves behind him a great es tate, entirely, wo believe, tho result of his own prudence and ability. How he man aged his immense affairs, is known to all the world. Most unfortunately, very few men achiove a grand success like bis without some spots upon the character, which no splendor of fortune can efface; but Mr. Lawrence was as freo as any man ever was from the sordid rices of pecuniary nroeper ity. He was not merely honest within the letter ol the law ; but open handed and lib eral, with kind words olcncouragomcnt and kinder acts of sstisUnce for all who needed them. Thero was not a trace of avarice or greed in his nstura; if be acquired great sums, he used them worthily; and lived and moved among as, a genial, honorable, Chris tian gentleman and merchant. id eariy me Air. ijawrence wu united in marriaie with Katharine Bigelow, eldeat diugbter of tbo lato Tinothy Bigelow, K»q., and the anion proved eminently a happy one.

Ever since the adjournment of the last legislature, the Rum and Nebraska paper* linvo kept up auoh a kovl. (it can be called nothing else,) about "land plundering" and " appropriation* to Sectarian Institution*," that we really fear manv honest peopla hare been cheated into a belx-f in some of their charge*, and they begin to indulge appre hension* that another Republican Legisla ture will atrip the State of every acre of land it possesses. In reply to all such mis representations of an unscrupulous press, it ought to be and is sufficient to sar, THAT THE LAST LEGISLATURE DID NOT AP PROPRIATE A SINGLE ACRE OF PUH LIC LAND FOR ANY PURPOSE WHAT EVER. It is true, bills wero introduced, both in Senate nnd House, which, il passed, would have given to coruin dearrving literary in stitutions a specified amount of land. Eut the bill was not passed. Tho legislature, after a full discussion of the whole subjeet, and a careful investigation into tho condi tion of tho State Treasury, determined that it wo* not a proper time to make the grant naked for, and consequently they refused to nanction the bills. Now it will be reinem Itered that the Republicans had a very Urge msjurity in tho Legislature, and that they were perfectly able, as a party to carry any measure they chose to favor. As they did not chose to vote away a single sere of tho State's domain, how baselrss and falso is the chargo of "land plundering," which the opposition press continue to bellow forth. Rut if all tho bills which were introduced had been passed, there should be no com plaint made by thoso who are now so loud in their reproaches. If the Republican leg islature of 1855, had teen fit to give n por tion of tho State's land to worthy and de serving Academics, they would have done no more than was rontemplated by the Con stitution of Maine, and do more than has boon dun* by tho Democracy, at various times, while that party had tho undisputed control of the Statu.
