Chicaoo, Aug. 18, 1^90.
Mr. Euituk : The good work goea brava
ly on, in the Ureat West. Illinois is safe
for /Vernon/ am! Dayton. Th« people
throughout the West hit thoroughly nwsk*
and aroussd to the comingcontest. In spite
of the death struggles of tha Starr Democ
racy to eonceal »D«1 keep baok the real issue,
in this campaign out uf sight, the people
fully understand it. They know that il ia
the design of the a lure democracy to qarry
slavery by fore* into fnv territory conaecrut
ed bjr our fisthen te tha true L*>>ocwr an J to
freedom. Tha peoplo of the Went know that
the alavo democracy hare acta'ted a man for
their candidate whoao diahonc-ty aa a poli
tician, whose shifting* and turning* from
Ftdrahtt to Drrmocrat from Democrat to A*
ohtionitf, faom AMitianism to Shvary prop
agandist*, from the conservative statasman
in the prima of lifi> to tho filibuster in old
age, will warrant tbom in believing tiiat ha
will be marc supple, and abject iu tho handa
of his masten than Frank Pi.-roo even.
The voters in the North Waat have no
confidence in Janu« Buchanan. They be
lieve that if elected President of tho I'nited
States, that he would bo ready to sarr*
tha alavo driven of the South and tho ne
gro traders of tha North : and to pnatitutai
tho influence of hit position: and to use
the power of the government for the pur
pass of subjugating Freemen in Kwaat and
forcing slavery into Free Territory as Mr.
Pierce has been. Tho people ■ »f the great
West can also believe tliat the government,
sf this great Republic would Se unwfe in
tha handa of Mr. Huohanan, •* any other
individual guilty of auch grtxw dishonesty aa
a diplomatist aa he exhibited to the civil- j
Ued world in becoming a party to that fid
iculciJS document called the (J<trnd M.imf't
and by the way, lion. A. J. Brown's {
letter to tha Hon. S. R. Adams, ahowa that
Mr. Buchanan still adheres to the same,
piratical dootrinea communicated by himself, 1
Mason and Soule at Otfmd; and that ho
intcuda to put it in practice— that it will be !
a part of his policy—the crowning object of
his administration if elected.
In that document Mr. Ruchtnan says:
"After wo shall hava offered Spain a price
for Cuba far kryond Ut yrurnt valor, and
this shall have bono rvfaaed, it will then be
time to consider the qaoeti >a, <ioes CuU* in i
tho possession of Spain, serioualy tn 'anyr

cherished Union ? Should thin <juo»tion ba
answered in tlie affirmative, then by every
law, humitn and divine, uv tkaii be juUt/itd

Now jaat take the following letter from
Hon. A. Q. Drown, one of the comiuiKoj
choeen a ad acKctcd by the Cincinnati L'un
rention, to inform Mr. ttuclianan of hi*
nomination by that convention, to the iloa
S». It. Adam*, in connection with the declar

If the nomination of Mr. luchanan Was

waited oo him at Hie rwidenos to give him
formal and official notice vf his nomination,
and in the nam* of the National Democra

found him oprn, fWnk, and wholly undie

Aa our tfhki well know, we worn not o
the nuubar of tbase who ur^ed most ■Iron
uously the ssleetion of Col. Fremont, by th<
Convention at Philadelphia, aa the standart
bearer in the great political campaign whicl
is now upon ua, of those principles of jo*
ticc, humanity and liberty to whish out
»■amort adherence ta given. While highlj
appreciating, and heartily admiring, the no
ble and aignal qualities of this guatlsman,
we felt a desire that if poaiible somo wall
tried Captain in the ranlu, which ao lon«
have stood unconquered for the Right, should
bj selected to lead them to the victory which
is now, ws trust and believe, before them,
ltut since this selection has been made, wo
arv led most clearly to recogniw in it th«
good haud of God : and to feel, as wo al
most never fell hitherto, that Providence
has raised up, has endowed and has trained
this workman for bis office, the Man for tho
Hour. If the election in November shall
result, as we are well porauaded that it will,
in placing him in the chair of the President
of thsse Coifed States, then we aru com
pelled to say that in no one instance in all
the history of our natioo, since the freight
of the Majflowor wai landed at Plymouth,
will the guiding and governing mind of
God, interposing for our protection, have
been mora clearly shown than in raining
him «p to meet thia crisis.
Young, unworn, entirely freah in politi
cal life, then» urn upon him no uiarka of
put controversies, there are about him no
adors of past political error*, or partizun
wrong*. Of &o inventive, prompt and dis
criminating mind, as all hit history shows,
and now in th« full and perfect prime of
every power, he is able to meet, if any man
can, ihe whole demand of the prevent cmcr
gencv. Of French extraction, on his fa-,
ther'a side, he is yet thoroughly an Ameri- '
••an, by birth, by training, by his maternal ■
ancestry, and by all hia idm* of government |
and religion. Horn in Georgia, and edu
cated at the institutions of South Carolina, J
hischoeen home has still been at the West,
and his ardor for freodom has never failed
or wavered. A child of poverty, and a man
of the people, his career has been more sig- j
nally heroic than that of any other living
American ; and he has won liis steady way
to opulence and honor, through the unac
customed paths of self-denial and forti
tude.
Delicate in frame, entirely modast and
unas«uming in deportment, he has inspired
the low of the atalwart and Gary pioneers of
the Wwt, us almost no man lufore has done;
and his name would now rally thousands on
the birJers to any most difficult and hai- I
trdous enterprise. Of extraordinary exec-1
utive and administrative powers, he com- :
binea with these equally the tastes of the J
scholar, the practiced enterprise and skill of
the soldier. His name is as well known lit
the Old World aa in tho new. And while
the South haa furnished his birth-place, and
the wilderness of the West tho chosen scene
of hit exertions, California, tho youngest (
and wealthiest of the Statea, owes to him
her exploration and her subsequent conquest,
ind to him, in a great part, her present free
dom. The whole country, therefore, and
tverr part of it, has an interest in hia name. !
The young men of the country, especially,'
:uust rally to him as their natural loader,
with ready enthusiasm. His name aeems a
sratchwoid for Liberty ; and already crowds
■mtks the echoes ring with tho atirring re- |
train of Free Soli, Free Speech, Frea Men, |

I Aft threat of disunion will tpecdily »n<l i
•orever be Mleno-d at tho Smth. The brave
who «twl» unauaported into the Senate

pickpocket with the policeman benide him,
Sefore tho intrepid and »*lf-poi»fd will of
'iim who hna fneed the raiuntain onown,
while they were daintily dallying at home;
.if him whom Indian* and Meiionn* could
not scare— though with ten-fold hi* firoo—
now wielding tbe treaauiy and the army of
the country. Nay, with him in that chair
«e have the firmest conviction that all iec
ion* will feul stfe, and that ipjedy oalui
«ill *ucoced the recent and the present agi
tation* ; while hu life and his w.»rdi give
the ampleet gaartnbM that the inrtuenco of
the government will all be empl.iyed on the
tide of freedom and <(« benign order.
It ieeumewhat euriou»to notice tlte ami*
ii»H oorrvapondeneo between the hwtory of
ilii* young Republican Capuin and that of
him whom our father* took ac their leader
in th« nmr grrnt straggle fur Liberty on
thM continent. A part of theee have been
noticed by the papers, an<i by speakers.—
Others we liars not Men referred to. They
ire interacting and suggestive. Waahing
too vt* left in childhood, by the death oi
Sie father; to the charge of hi* mother.
Kremont wan so likewise, at a still earlier
period and In circumstances certainly much
leas au*pR>>us. Washington had early ■
IKMOB far the sea, ao atrung that a mid
■hipman's warruut ww obtained for hiia by
hie friend*. Fremont went to aea, and
waa there employed for mote than two
wore. Washington was introduced to pulv
lie life through his service oil the frontiers,
»a a aurvpTur and civil engineer. Krwnoal
wen hie disci piios and hia early fame in Uh
vim department, and by hie uh aod prae
liee in it, become Sued in miad and body
to « endure tmniaem."
IN"aehingfcm lenrned all that he knew o.
war, in Indian combats, and the strife o
(he wildemem, and rose thua to the rank o
Colonel fa the Provincial troops. Freitmat'
<ho«l waa the aame, and he haa gained th
Mae rank. Washington had had aaall e*
11 perirnoe a* a legislator, until be was calls
to the bead of the government, llo wa
taken for hia well triod general qualities
and not for any distinction ho bad acliierei
/ aa a diplomatist or a «talesman ; and her
. again, the parallel holds. Washington wa
, sneered at by the men of routine, was hate<
. and assailed by tho Tories of that day, as i
soldier who had never " set a squadron ii
the field," until his energy and paticno
,r drove thorn all out of it. The same class o
1 attacks are now made on Fremont—to U
1 answered, ws trust, In tho name improssivi
waj. Ilia frionds mrly felt that Washing
ton was specially fitted and preserved ol
Providence to become the head of tho na
tion ; as Kev. Samuel Davis expressed it,
that *' Providence has hitherto preserved
him in so signal manner for tome important
srrviec to his country." Tho same expecta
tion, becoming almost a premonition, has,
for years, been general among the frionds of
Fremont. Dr. Robertson, his early tmchor,
expressed it in tha preface to his edition of
tho Anabasis, publishod yuars ago, in those
words ; " Such my yt>ung frionds, is an im
perfect sketch of my once beloved and fa
vorite pupil, who may yet rise to be at the
head of this great and growing Republic.—
My prayer is, tliat ha may ever lie opposed
to war, injustice and oppression of every
kind, a blowing to his country, and an ex
ample of every noble virtue to tho wholo
world." Washington was called to the
head of the artny at the ago of forty-four,
nnd if Col. Fremont shall live to sue the 4th i
| of next March, wo confidently expect to see
that the singular parallel will «o far be per
fected !

Wealth of tho British Ariitocracy
In evidence of tho wealth amassed by an
cient families, tho trateller if ahown the
palaciv in Piccadilly, Burlington limine,
Devonshire House, Lunsdowno House in
Berkshire Squure, and, lower down in the
city, n few noble hour* which ktill with
stand in all their amplitude tho encroach
ment of streets. The Duke of Bedford in
clude! or included a mile square in the heart
of London, where the British Museum, once ■
Montague House, now stands, and tho land j
occupied by Woburn Square,Bedford Square.
Hussel Square The Marquis of Westmins
ter built within a few yeani tho series of
squares culled Belgravia. Stafford House is
the noblest palace in London. Northuiul»er
land House holds its place by Charing Cross.
Chesterfield House remains in Audley
Street. Sion House and Holland II #uso are
in the suburbs. But most of tho historical
houses are masked or lust in tho modern
uso« to which trade or charity luis convert
ed them. A multitude of town jiuLioos con
tain inestimable galleries of art.
In tho country, tho six-) of prirato estates
is more impressivo. From Bernard Cattle,
I rode on to the highway twenty-three miles
from High Form, a fall of the trues, towards
Darlington, p<ist Itaby Castlo, through the
estate of the Duko of Cleveland. The Mar
quis of Brcadalbaue rides out ol his house u
hundred miles in a straight line to the sea,1
on his own property. The Duke of Suther
land owns the county of Sutherland, stretch
ing ocroM Scotland from soa to sea. The l
Duke of Devonshire, besides his other es
tates, owns "Jd,000 uares in the county of
Derby. The Duko of Richmond has 40,000
ucres at Goodwood, and .'100,000 nt Gordon
Castle. The Duko of Norfolk's park in'
Sussex, is fifteen miles in circuit. An ag
riculturist bought lately the is'and ofLcwos,
in Hebrides, containing S00,000 acres. The
possessions of the Karl of Lonsdale gave him
eight seats in Parliament. This is the
Heptarchy again ; nnd before the reform of
1832, ono hundred and fifty-four persons
sent three hundred and seven members to'
Parliament. Tho borough-mongers govern
ed England.
These largo dominion* are growing larger.
The groat estates arc absorbing the (null
freehold'. In 1780, the soil of England was
owned by 200,000 orpirations and propri-,
etors; und in 1822, by 32,000. These broad!
estates find room on this narrow island. All

Taw, tKry art mad that the nm« necessity
does not oxist this joar. Wo need not give
much attention to their symptom* of mud
und minory, jet a passing remark re
specting this subject may not be deemed
amiss bj our readers.
We hay most diitinclly and unejutvocally
that TIIE MAINE LAW IS NOT AN IS
SUEINTIIE PRESENT CAMPAIGN.—
Last joar the Republicans were defeated and
tten elected bj whom the pracnt law was
passed. It is a subject on which tbcre
•hnuld he no hasty and imprudent nation
Wo think it expedient and proper to give
the present law a fair trial, and to allow the
public mind a reasonable tiuie for calm, de

dencius. If it answers a good purpose, if its
practical operations nhall prove m salutary
and lienlthful a* its originator* claimod it
would, it ia a fair presumption that the
public opinion of Maine will sustain it an a
permanent work oflegislation. The Repub
licans kij, " giro it n fair chance. Let it
havo an opportunity to promote temperance
and to suppress pauperism and crime." The
Republicans this year do not raise nn issue
against it, and nerrr, If on a fair teat it
prove* what its friends claim for it. Tim
my this yoar, the confrst so far as they are
concerned shall bo a NATIONAL ono.—
They wish to drive the party of Franklin
Pierce from the high places which it bus so
befouled and disgraced. They arc in tlw
contest with the aim todofeat Juuicb Kucha
nan and the TYRANNICAL and PIRATI
CAL doctrinos of the Cincinnati platform.
Tlicy ask that the national government shall
lie restored to the purity it had in the days
ofits founders. To this end they aro will
ing to unite with all men rcgittdlrst of for'
mcr political opinions, who havo this com
mon purpose, and will faithfully regard
this common bond of union. •
The supporters of Hamlin and Fremont in
Maine arc not nlouc the Republicans of hut
year. With tho Republicans of 1855 are
now acting THOUSANDS who one year
sinco were active with onr present opponents,
nnd no lur* or distinctions should ho set up
against them, hut they are, and will he,
treated in good faith. In voting with us
for Hamlin and Fremont wo do not auk them
—wo have no right to auk them—to en
dorso tho Maine I/\w. IVe belie vo in tho
principles of a wound and and efficient pro
hibitory law. Thry diff-r from us on thin
ijucstion. Neither their views, nor ours, on
thi» subject are to bo a test in tho great
national struggle in which wo uro engaged.
The Philadelphia platform is tho only one
to which tec and they p'edgemutual fidelity.
But no.no will ask, if tho Republican* tri
umph this year, w ill they not next winter
forcr the Muino Law on tho people, thus
cheating thoso of us who arc opposed to it,
yot liavn voted for Hamlin and Fremont?—*'
Ah Republicans, believing in the binding
force of honor in political action, wo
NO. Wo aro oppose*] now and ever to all (
fraud and bad faith on tbo subject. We b> |
liuvo the principles of the Maino law to be '
sound, efficacious, and eminently humane, l
but wo never wish tho people compelled to
receive it aguinst their will. Whenever
that question comes, wc wish to sou it sub-;
nutted to the peoplo as a distinct issue, on'
a day appointed for tho special purpose,
that they may say YKA or NAY at the
polls, and submitted to them not until they
call for thr i/tietlion.
Thoro is no reason, therefore, why any
man who intends to vote for Fremont, shou'd
not vote with tho Republic ins in September.
On the September olection depends the choice
of tho*" men who are to form a part of the
House und Senate at Washington while Fre
mont is tho President. Can any consider
ate nnd honest supporter of Fremont vote
with his opponents in Septemlier, and thus
uid to elect a United States Senator and sis
Representatives who shall go to Washing
ton to tio the hands of n Republican Presi
dent, in fact, making him little moro than
t prisoner in tho White House? There
could be no greater inconsistency.
Let all the opponents of Ruchanan, of
•• Rorder Ruffianism," of Slavory-extension
and nullification, all who wish to rescue the
wronged and suffering peoplo ol Kansis from
the robbers and murderers who aro decimat
ing their numbers, and wasting that fair
land with fire and swonl, all who wish well
to LIBERTY and our common UNION,
combine and carry Maine by a majority of
many thousands, and thus show to the
whole country that the Eastern wing of the
Republican army is raaistlass against tho
common foe. Victory in West and the Kast
will surely give courage and strength at the
centre of tho Republican lino, and enable
our noble leader to sweep Pennsylvania by
FORTY THOUSAND majority. We have
bufuro us tho mightiest issue presented tc
the American people aiaco tho Revolution.
Let us act like men.—Kenndxc Journal.

Portland, Aug. 28, 1850.
The Perili of the Whale Fishery.
A earresp indent ot the Ikrnslable Pat
' riot relate* tlio following incident which oc
' currcd during tho voyage of the brig John,
, l\»pt. Alley, from Itonton, on a whaling
cruae to tho Knuil Ikuiku, in May, 1818.—
The InhiI* having been lowered for whalea,
and tho writer at the maat head on the look
out, ho soon discovered that tho mate, Mr.
P. B. Mooree, of Nantucket, had got fast
to ono of tho whales, and that it continued
to tow tho boat to the windward of the vea
aol. lie prococd*:—
Tho wbalo rounueu too tinu w
•how fight. Tho mate I muled hia boat up
to the whale And lancvd him. The Captain
coining up with the whalo bovo in two iron*
from hia boat. I sow tliat tho whale spout
won ting.*! with blood in its appaaranoo;
but he wm determined not to giro tip with
out another struggle ior his life, as he sqpnd
ed out nearly all tho lint that the bjats hud,
and commenced to run further trout the
brig to tho windward. When tho whale
carno to tho surface again, tho two "buatu
wero out of sight. It was noarljr sunset,
and the wind increasing to a galo so that wc
were obliged to bring the brig under single
nwfal U>|*»ils ; this was done bjr tho shi|
kwper, ntcwanl and myself, a bnjr only ten
yarn old, for this wax all the crew tliat wu>
I left ou board wlirn the boats were off aftn
I whales. Wo hoirtfd tlie to]«<aiU op as wt
r oould get theta, and continued to work tr
• tho windward, taking short tacks to keef
r ht»r near the sanw position, that the boat
. might know how to steer for the ship. At
i tho sun was setting in tho horizon, I sav
• one of tho boat* directly to the windward
I pulling toward* aa; It was the captain'i
. I Ixttt. The wind «u utill increasing, an
the i»ky hr.d the appearance of a gale con
• ing on, we wcreoblig«xl to wear»hip to tali
}-'up the captain'* boat, and when he goto

I clo«ti reefed main tojoail aud roofed fun-Kit
' Tho uiate'a boat wiia »till fiu»t to tho wliab
I j and hift position no one knew, or in wlui
direction to find them. We continued t
• work to the windward, by wearing «hip ci
cry hour; our signal lantern had been k
aft noon aft <Lirk let in, nnd we bad mad
I torchc* out of rope yarn* and oil, nnd hu<
j thorn burning, to enable them to get nigh
of ui* if pomible, and all hand* on Kian
were on the look out for the boat'* light, a
our boat* were provided with lantern*, tin
, der box and inatchoc, we expected to tee it
But no light appealed, for the boat wiu
nearly swamped with n Kid am, and th<
I tinder Iwx and matche* wet. [t w.u now
1 nearly midnight, and blowing a living gub
j of wind, and the ft.«n running w high that it
\ appeared almost itnpowihle for a Nut to
I lire an instant, and to add t3 the horror* ol
1 tho scene it wa* pitch dark, fir the wlioli
j heavens xrtv oreniprend with a canopy of
, black clouds, no stars or n».v>n to bj soen.
Kvery mm on board began to do«|uir of
ever Hoeing our companions ng.iin. Tho
weather waft odd, for the month of .May
corresponds wim our inovcdiiktr, and we
wero cruising In tho latitude of forty South.
But you must judge of tlio thrill of joy that
•hot through every heart on board, when,
alwvo tho howling of the element, and the
roaring of tho ocean wave*, wo heard the
voice of our noble hearted mate, u short
distance under our loo bow, to lot us know
he wki still lb ing, and in a few moment*
more the lww of the boat was won break
ing i 1st way through the foam of a heavy
sea that lud threatened to nwallow it up
with all that wo* in it, aud btforo another
wa came, the Iniat was along fide, and all i
wan hoisted up, the foresail wait hauled up
a« soon us the mate's voice was heard, and
the vessel lay too under tho ciuse reefed main ,
tojmail. It appeared that the mat.; contin
ut'd to hold on tho whale and tow it to the J
leward, until his men were n arly beat out, l
and when ho tried to get a light, lie was!
quite dose to the whale, andj>y tliut mnns|
he was enabled to halu tho water out of his
boat. Ho luy in this |H>sition for two or
three hours, not knowing which of the two
alternatives to take, whether to luy by the
whale and run the risk o( perishing with
wet and cold, or cast olT from the whale
und risk ls-ing swamped by tho sea, in try
ing to got on l>oard with bis bjat, the ri-k
being aWt equal. When hn left tho whale
he could not Ixxir the idea of leaving with
out putting up a mark tluit would show
uhovo water, and should ho got on board in
safety, to cnahlo him to find it when the
gile moderated, lie hauled up nlong side ami j
cut a holo in the blither, und Ntuek up his
Itoat's mast with tho wafe on t4>p of it.—
Altar using this, precaution, which proved
in the end just what he intended it should,
he cut lib line und pulled away for the hrig,
which was about a mile to tho toward, und
got on board us I have stated. The next
morning, the gale had moderated, so that
we were enabled to make Mil, and the brig
was standing on the wind under single reefed
topsails, when tho man at the masthead
king nut, " a dead whale right ahead ! "—
We stood on right towards it, and found it
to !> • the same one that we parted couijmny ,
with the night Iwfore. He was noon got
nlong side,•• linked roped," and cut In as
toon as the sea would permit, and made
ninety barrel* of oil, nearly making us up
n full ship.
