New Yokk. The Union and An.pn. of
yesterday, says it wishes there were a pros
pect for New York going aguia.-t Lincoln,
bat has no hopes of its being go. Pray toil
us, neighbor, why yoa cannot entcitain any
auch hopfs. What evidence have you that
more than a mujority of the FilluKTc men
havo-gone to Lincoln Was it not demon
strated ia the elections there last year tbat
the conservative Opposition, the Bell dk-h,
held the balance of power, and thattiiy
turned the --cale by casting ILcir votes fur
men selected from both the IlcpulIIeao and
Democratic tickets? Was not that the mot
warmly contested election ia that Stats since
1856? And is it not true that many of tLe
conservative Opposition objected to such a
ticket, advocated the running of a ticket of
their own. and actually retuswl to vote at all?
But notwithstanding all this the. vote which
was cast by them was sufficient to defeat the
candidates ot both the parties whose nanus
were not on their ticket. There is now no
such differences among the Union party ol
New York, and instead of being weaker now
than in IcjG, they are much stronger having
drawn large recruits both from the moderate
Republicans and the Breckinridge pat ty. The
Douglas men. who compose the great body of
the N. Y. Democracy, substantially admitted
this fact when they granted the Union Fal t.T
nearly oue third of the electors cu the fusion
ticket. The only error our fii-r.d? committed
in that arrangement was th:ti thry ought to
have demanded :i greater mnnlier. Ls-t
yeaa's elections fully demonstrated that a
majority of the poopl of New York :,r-- '!
posed to the Republicans. The enonticus
corruptions by tbe last Republican Legisla
ture, which have been thoroughly exited,
have largely increased that m y -rity sigaiust
them. Besides there is a great revolution iu
public sentiment in progr. ;s there agjiri;t
the "irrepreiribk- couiel' and the bribery
and corruptions of the Republican p.irty.
The N. Y. JlerjlJ, which, whatever may le
tboaght of it as a safe political leader or
vher on political subjects c-r grave concern,
has ottea shown itself a sagacious potent
of public sentiment, states that the Bkjj.
Dor giis ticket will carry tb State by from
fifty to one hundred thousand majority ; mid
that, too, on the basts of the Bell sentiDie.tt.
The Union, and Air.Tivm is, therefore, very
wide of the mark ia depreciating Mr. Ev i l's
strength in the State of New York. But w'iil-j
wc trnt that the XZttT estimate, i: t liis
cae. will be approved by the actual r. -ult,
we concede that our neighbor may have
grounds for his apprehensions, though mii
placed. Knowing that tb defeat of Lincoln
in New York, is his defeat in the Union, we,
too, have our apprehensions. Bat cur mis
givings are grounded on the ccnt'euance in
the Ccld of a straight Breckinridge electoral
ticket. That party cannot poll a vote of
more than forty or fifty thousand in the ag
gregate popular rote cf about hundred
thousand wbicb, utterly insigniiieant in
itself, may still secure the success of Lincoln.
If our neighbor is sincerely desirous to ac
complish the overthrow or Lincoln in New
! York, let him advise his Breckinridge frauds
..to discharge their electoral ticket, go i:i'o
the Bell-Douglas arrangement and thus unite
ia solid phalanx tbe opponents of Liccoln,
and insure his defeat beyond peradventurc.

idea cf civil war. if the Union were dissolved,
was s chimera. There injht be border forays
but a dozen intrepid Virginians would quell
then. , But if war should come, in so just a
c iuso, who wcr.M shrink from it? Our fore
fathers, w ith a third cf our population and
not a tenth ot our territory, went to war on
a preamble, because it in vol veil a point of
honor. Had we not courage enough to fol
low the'r example? What was there so hard
lo give tip ia our present government? The
Constitution was already repealed, effete aud
incapable of maintaining our rights. The

to the North from the rich States of the
South, would all pour through Virginia, or
be arrested at Lome. Virginia would become
the most powerful Stale iu the world. In
twelve months her whole fortunes would be
revolutionized. These were not the iucon
frideraU? conclusions of rashness or resent
ment, but the cairn deductions of a retired
political philosopher. We could not rely
upon-those we considered our liitndj at the
North; we mu:t rely on ourselves. Mr. N.
was about to conclude, bus the convention
urging him to proceed, he said he was happy
to tir-.d ttiat his plain doctrines were not dis
tasteful to his enlightened audience. He had
retired from public life from telf-respcct, and
had been devoting himself since exclusively
to the interests ot his State and section, and
the cultivation of letters aud philosophy. He
was growing old endeared nothing lor politi
cal distinction. He would invoke thera, in
conclusion, to enter into no compromises, and
not to turn their backs on their gallant friends

Slave Ixckease. Tbe new census will
probably show the number of shaves in the
Uniled States to be over 4,000,000. Thi3 is
on the computation that the rate of increase
will be not less than it was from 15 10 to 1850.
The addition fo the numbers within that pe
riod w as 716,736, the rata of increase nearly
23 per cent; more precisely 2S.S0 per cent.
At this rate of increase, which is not likely
to lxj less, computations have been made of
the future numbers of the slave population,
within a few years. The figures are, indeed,
startling, from their magnitude, 'insrery
certain that within the first quarter, of tbe
Ttext century it will bo at least fifty millions.

Our contemporary seems to regard Mr.
Yaxcey'm views as of more Importance than
those of Mr. Biieceixeidge. It published
only extracts from the Frankfort speech of
Mr. B., and did not make a campaign docu
ment of them. It gives all of Mr. Yaxczt's,
except the suppressed disunion passages, and
elevates it to the dignity of a campaign doc
ument. Wc make no question of the proprie
ty of this difference in its treatment of the
two leaders. As Gov. Chapman said when
he introduced Mr. Yaxcey to the people at
Iluntsville, Ala., he (Mr. Y.) is ''more identi

Pcxaski, Aug. 23, 18C0.
We were lavored last evening by a chaste,
eloquent, dignified, and very able political
address from this gentleman ia response to
aa invitation from tbe ladies of Pulaski, who
sympathize with the Constitutloual Union
pary. It is well known ia this part of the State
that Mr. Shiffingtoii, a life-long Democrat,
was an Me advocate of Mr. Eashanan's
election, and for a time a zealous supporter
ol his Administration. But the recent devel
opments of fraud and corruption in high
places tb? dismemberment of his party, and
the uLmistiikable tendency of the Southern
w ing of it to disuniou, and the utter hopeless
ness of defeating the nefarious schemes of
fanatics and sectionalisls, by other means
than elevating the' pure, noble and conserva- !
tive Statesman who heads our ticket to the
Presidency, has inspired his patriotism to
his support with all the energy of his nature.
Aud I assure you that the claims of our
ticket are urged by him more impressively,
and with more ability than by many of Ten
nessee's gifted sons. In political information
he -has few superiors, while he urges his
points with a clearness and cogency of rea
soning that must carry conviction to every
mind, not Hunted by prejudice.
lie reviewed ia a dignified, severe manner,
the vindictive course pursued by tho Admin
istration towards Douglas, originating as he
clearly d'.monstrattd from his opposition to
the Lecompton swindle. He rebuked iu jnst
teime.tliC perfidy of fhe executive to his party
and tbe country, iu using its patronage, pow
er and inHucnce to defeat Douglas for the
Heuat.', when Douglas was a consistent, con
servative Democrat, and his defeat would
add another Black Republican to the roll of
Senators. And ho showed by unmistakable
proof, that the dismemberment of the Demo
cratic party wa measurably tbe result of
Mr. Buchanan's vindictiveness to Judge
Douglas, and that the sole origin of this hos
tility was the refusal of the latter, to obey
blindly, and against his own convictions of
rihf, the imperious behests of the Presi
dent to a policy that was corrupt, fraudulent
and only calculated to sectio:ialie the 'conn
try. But the strength and burd'-n of his speech
was directed to the only real issue before the
couutry that issue upon which the fate of
our country hangs, and eloquently did he
depict the glorious memories that cluster
around, aud cling to the Union of the States,
au l tti.j l.rlgtit liopoa that Hfctit up its future
safety and growth to the eye of the patriot.
Ami by an accumulation of facts perfectly
overwhelming an I irresistible, and by an
array of evidence that did not admit even of
' a reasonable doubt," he convicted the
Yar.cey-Breckiaridgc party of a longcheriah
e I, and well concerted scheme to form an In
dependent Southern Confederacy, and that the
Southera wing of the Democratic party has
now become merged iu the disunion party of
the co! ton S;ates,while Breckinridge is a pli
ant tool in their bauds to accomplish their ne
At the close ol his speech he paid Lis re
spects to the large assemblage of the fair
ladies of Pulaski, in the most graceful and
happy manner, amid tLe . applause of the
lirge and intelligent audience before hira.
Col. Solou E. Rose was then loudly Called
for, and responded in a style that did full
credit to his chatacler r.3 a political speaker;
and this is erough to say of this well known
champion of conservative principles.
A Serions Cliarge.
Au address recently issued by the Breckin
ridge National Executive Committee, signed
by Isaac I. Stevens, chairman, ' (the same
gentleman who delivered the long and prosy
harangue at the Assembly Buildings, . on
Monday evening.) contains the following se
tious charge ngaiust Judire Douglas:
"To conciliate Republican votes, he baa
indulged in vulgar flings at the South.- He
prefers the clams of Rhode Island to the
niggers of the South. 'I have mi cu more

to the heart: of the American Democracy; and
even if he should extend his claiu-bukiug op

his way the infiulterelish of fresh-caught
mackerel, halibut, and cod, he will find that
whilst the people arc pleased with the jovial ,
qualities of the hale, well-met fellow, they
w ill despite and Teprobate the public man."
It has been the misfortune of the distin- i
guished Senator from Illinois to draw down 1
upon his devoted head the bitter denuacia- j
tious of the Secessionists for many alleged i
offences, yd somehow or other he has gener

Letter from Hon. XV. K. Stokes.
' " Alexandria, Aug: 24th, 1860.
' Tu tJte Editor of FalrvA and JJaner:J see
published In i lh? Union and American ofAug.
19th, a letter over the signature of Robert
Cantndl. and certificates from several gentle
men, which I think do me great Injustice.
This letter cf Mr. C.'s is iu reply to one T
wrote, putting myself right in regard to a
spetcvlmarl.'j ja SmifUvniefqa ba 21st 'of
July iasrl Mr. Cantrell ttrote k letter to-tiie
Union andJbneikan reporting mx speech, in
which he misrepresented my language. He
reports me as having said that tbe Black Re
publicans told Col. Hatfoa and myself that
if tbey could not elect Lincoln, they would
vote for Mr. Bell; an i that as Douglas would
prefer the election of Bell to Breckinridge,
Illinois would go. for Bell,.Igain repeat
that my statement at Smitbville was. .that if
the electiou was thrown into the House of
Representatives, that Mr. Bell would, in my
opinion be elected, as neither party had a
majority, and Mr. Bell, being the second
choice, made him the strong man; and that
the Black Republicans had 15 States, and it
required 17 to elect, therefore they conld not
elect, and would, in my opinion, vote for Mr.
Bell as a second choice, before they would
see the Democrats hold on and control the
Government; and that some of the Douglas
Democrats if Illinois had told Col. Ilatton
and myself that if the election was carried
to the House of Representatives, they would
vote for Bell in preference to Breckinridge.
Is this in substance a correct statement?
I am compelled to say t1 : it is. I have
talked to a number of honorable gen
tlemen of the Union party, they say that it is
correct, as they paid strict attention. Bat
there is still more proof to sustain me. I
see ia the Lebanon Democrat of August 3d, a
letter written by some one signing name
'DeKalb,'' reporting my .spe""';. in which lie
says I stated, '-If the electa a wen! to the
House ot Representatives,'- Hull w ill Iks
elected certain. . He had Te: ncsst io begin
with, aud the Black Republican States would
take Bell as their next choice after Lincoln,
and that Douglas would carry Illinois, and
he and Col. Ilatton had be"n solemnly as
sured by the Douglas men that they prefered
Mr. Bell after Douglas.'' Now, here is the
statement of Mr. "DeKalb' I suppose a good
Democrat, who sustains ine in substance,
fully on this point, and almost my precise
language; not oue word as to the Republi
cans telling Ilatton and myself as to how
they would vote.- Now here is "DeKalb," a
good Democrat stating it one way, and Mr.
Cantrell another way. I leave that for them
to settle. The country can see clearly the
object sought after by referring to Mr. Cau
trell's last letter, in w hich he states that the
point he was making was, "that Stokes, Hat
ton and the Black Republicans had an ar
rangement by which their strength was to be
thrown to Bell if the election went to Congress.'-'
The substance of this admission of Mr.
Cantrell, I have uo doubt, was the main point
he sought. The couutry will see at once the
object from bis own admission; so I leave
this part of it to th decision of an honest
Mr. C. further says he made four points iu
his letter, all of w hich he submitted to John
H. Savage, Dr. J. J. Gowan, and L C. Stone,
while the matter was fresh, and they en
dorsed the positions as correct.
1st. That I staled that tbe South Ameri
cans went to the Republicans and procured
them to withdraw Sherman as a candidate
for Speaker and, pat. up Pennington. It is
certainly true that some of us did urge the
members from the States of Pennsylvania
and New Jersey, after some.of the Democrats
had indicated that they would be satisfied
with the election of some such man as Gov.
Corwin or Pennington. When that fact was
announced, we being anxious that the IIousj
should organiz ", did press them to take Sher
man do.vn and put up Pennington, or some
man lo.-s offensive than Sherman. We de
sired to organize, as the country was suffer
ing f oia the failure of the preceding Demo
cratic Congress to na:;s any annronriation
bill for the Post Office Department, which
failure ought to have disgraced them and
hurled them from power forever.
The second point alluded to has been fully
notioi d. It is in regard to what the Repub
licans should have said to Hatton aud my
self. . . . ..
' The 3d point is, that f aid if Breckinridge
was elected, he would no? be permitted toad
minister the Government. This, 'as I stated
in my letter.before, I never heard of until I
saw it in print in' the Union and American.
This seems to have been a very important
point with Mr. Cantrell, yet Mr. "DeKalb,"
who wrote to the Lebanon Democrat, made no
mentronTPIt.-So I leave'that point.
The 4 th point is, that I would not say
whether Congress had Ibepowcr to legislate
on the subject of slavery.1 This is a question
that I did not discuss. But will say here,
that whether Congress has tho power or not,
they have exercised it almost from the forma
tion of the government up to 1S54, the time
of tbe passage of that Democratic measure
called the Kansas and Nebraska act, which
has, and is, distracting our Country more
than all other acts. Mr. CL says he submit
ted his notes;of my speech to the gentlemen
above named. W hy did he not submit them
to me? .He had a. good opportunity to have
done SQ. , For he and myself bad a private
conversation immediately after I was done
speaking, on some." private business, 'and we
also talked about politics, and the expendi
tures of the Government, ic, &c. If Mr. C,
as Le says, is my personal friend, would it
not have been just and right for him to have
submitted his notes to iiie for my inspection?
In fact, it would seem to have been his duty
to have done so, then thia thing would not
bave been in:tho shape- that it is. lie Eays I
did Liw , great injustice hi my. letter. What
injustice,1 1 would a-3k,' was done him? Let
us see how thia is. He wiote a letter rcport
iuo "fiy 'Speech, which he says ho thinks is
correct.? ! thought different, '-. and it was',
therefore,' my duty, Iu justice to myself, to
correct the statement, w hich I did in a calm
and respectful manner, staling lhat I did not
charga tfie' iuisrepfeseutatiou as intentional.
Some or tnose gentlemen who give their cer
tificates I know to bo clever., men, and are
honestly mistaken, ami would ho j do me in
justice intentionally. -i ;. : t
, I will close this,' and submit the whole case
to the decision of - an hbnest people, intend
ing to do no man any injustice, j but to put
myself right. I could produce a, number of
certificates from honorable gentjemen con
firming my statement, but I deem it unneceai
sary, and will here let it rest. j u ' "'-5

: Sound. Sentiment.
Is h letter date! 10th insL, declining an
invitation to attend the Democratic Slate
Convention at-iLojihjyiUea. HoaJ&soE
Ptuh, of Ohio, gave utterance to some sound
sentiments, which, coming from a democratic
source; ur. worthy of mrk - He said. i?r..,
I am not as, Mr. Yancey 'expressed hira.-e!f
at the Maryland Institute, upon the occasion
of Mr. Breckinridge's nomination, merely
idtri 'tfilM respect 10 the,ontinuance of
thoiUaioto for it, destruction; I ampr tho
Union andt ji disunion, at all times, with
oat apology, or contingency, or qualification!
Tbe Constitution may be violated (as it often
has been) by unfaithful public servants, or in
the tempest of faciions, or from other causes;
but our plain duty, as patriots, la every such
emergency, "is "to invoke," agamr and again,
and again, until seventy limes seven, the
sober sense and calm judgment of the people.
If our Revolutionary fathers, under Washing
ton, conld prolong an apparently desperate
struggle for seven , years -driven from city
to city, from camp to camp, .from State to
State, by superior numbers, trampling the
snows and ice of mid-winter with bare feet
suffering two or three disasters tor each vic
tory and, at last., by sheer fortitude, achieve
the liberty and Independence we now enjoy,
he does little honor to tbe memory of such
ancestors (cs it seems to me) who would now,
in our zenith of national and individaal
prsoperity, abandon the great result of their
labors the Union which they established
wJ tbout an, equal exhibition of heroism.
What can be more criminal than this mod
ern habit of betaking ourselves, upon every
trivial occasion, or even npon solemn occa
sions, to the jirgon of Disunion, and Seces
sion and revolution? I am not only oppos
ed to it, gentlemen, but I am tired of it, and
disgusted with it. I hope to see the day
when a public declaration from any man
(ever so eloquent ami distinguished) that be
is "neither for the Union, nor against the
Union," will, instead of provoking thunders
of applause, as in the Breckinridge Conven
tion at Baltimore, be received with universal
indignation and abhorrence. I have been a
faithful Democrat ever since I had a vote; I
love the Democratic party,' its principles, its
policy, its usages of organization; I am prond
of its history, and have always felt my heart
throb with noble pulsations in musing upon
its future achievements,- but with all this af
fection, aud even with more thau I have ex
pressed, or can express, I declare to you, gen
tlemen, in all earnestness, that if Disunioo
ists, or those to whom Union or Disnnion is
an aflair of indifference, are now to b.come
the leaders of the Democratic party to pre
scribe the language of our platform to dic
tate, by means ot secessions at Charleston
and at Baltimore, whom we shall choose for
candidates it will be high time forme, at
least, to seek another and moe congenial as
sociation. I am against the "irrepressible
conflict" on loth sides as well that now per
souilied by John C. Breckinridge, as that
personified by Abraham Lincoln.
The Richmond Enquirer says that Douglas
cauuot count an average of fifty supporters
in each county of Virginia that this average
would give him in all but 7,500 votes; that
the lowest Democratic majority is 10,000;
and that if all Douglas's friends should sup
port him, theretore, the Breckinridge ticket
would have a plurality of 2.500 votes. It
goes on to argue that 6,000 Opposition men
will not vote lor Bell; that, finally, most of
the Douglas men will fall into the Breckin
ridge rauks, and that the Breckinridge ticket
will succeed by about 10,000 majority over
Bell and Douglas. If the Enquirer cannot
make out a better case than this, or a more
flattering statement of probabilities, we con
sider the State safe, with reasonable exertions,
for Bell and Everett, by at least 10,000 ma
jority. Douglas will probably receive 10,000
or 15,000 votes, and Bell and Everett will re
ceive the largest vote ever given for Opposi
tion candidates, State or National. No 6,000
Opposition men will refuse to vote lor them,
but their rauks will be increased by thou
sands ! Alexandria Gazette.

with fidelity and spirit, yet so skillfully interwoven
with the narrative, that the reader is not wearied by
statistics or dry historical detail. The homes of flfty
