Fremont in the South.
Can it be possible that there are men in the South
who prefer Fremont for the Presidency, or who
would acauiesce in his election ? The New York
Herald boasts that there are already Fremont Elec
toral tickets in Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland ;
and it adds, " Texas and North-Carolina will prob
ably soon follow suit." This is a vile slander on
the Southern people. No Fremont Electoral ticket
can le formed in North- Carolina mark that ! It
may be that there are traitors- here and there, in
this State, as there were tories in the Revolution,
who would thus deliver up their Dative land to the
fury of the fanatic and the torch of the incendiary ;
but they are few and far between. They do not
number more than one in one hundred.
The election of Fremont would inevitably lead to
a separation of the States. Even if no overt or di
rect act of dissolution should take place, he could
not carry on the government in the South. No true
or decent Southern man would . accept office under
him: and our DCODle would never submit to have
their post-offices, custom-houses and the like, filled
with Fremont's Yankee abolitionists. We would
. - .
not expect nor ask the Northern people to submit
in a similar case and we will not submit Sup
pose, for example, the Southern people, having the
power to elect a President, should nominate a can
didate on sectional grounds, pledged to wield all the
powers ot the federal government to extend and pro
pagate domestic slavery, and pledged to measures of
gross aggression, without . regard to the Constitu
tion, on the rights and property of the Northern
people ; and suppose they should elect such a can
didatewhat would the North do ? They would
resist it, and they ought to resist it They would
regard it as a virtual dissolution of the Union, and
would act accordingly. The Union can neither be
administered nor can it exist on sectional grounds.
If there be Fremont men among us, let them be
silenced or required to leave. The expression of
black Republican opinions in our midst, is incom
patible with our honor and safety as a people. If
at all necessary,, we shall refer to this matter again.
Let our schools and seminaries of learning be scru
tinized; and if black Republicans be found in them,
let them be driven out. 2 hat man is neither a fit
nor a safe instructor of our vounq men, who even
inclines to Fremont and black Republicanism.
Messes. Reade and Pdetear. The Register com
plains of our notice of the absence of Messrs. Reade
and Puryear from the House, pending the struggle
on the army appropriation bill. It says, "Mr. Pur
year, it is true, was absent at the beginning of the
session, but returned to Washington" City in time to
vote for the passage of the army bflL Mr. Reade,
we are informed, was prevented from attending the
extra session by sickness." Mr. Puryear returned
home at the close of the regular session, knowing
that an extra session had been called, and that every
Southern vote was necessary to pass the army bilL
He had seen the bill defeated ; and he knew that it
must pass, if it passed at all, by one or two majority.
Yet he left But the responsibility was too great,
and he returned. If that bill had failed for the lack
of one vote,; the storm of public indignation which
would have fallen upon bim would have been terri
ble indeed. ' " , "-- ' . . . .

ties are so distinctly drawn; On one side we see
the friends of Buchanan, the national Democrats and
a few old line WhigS ; and on the -other the dark
and banded cohorts of black Republicanism. - Mr.
Fillmore is hardly in the Btruggle, as the recent vote '
in Vermont, Iowa, and Maine clearly shows. ,
We have the pleasure of an exchange with the
Albany Argus, the Detroit Free Press, the Daily Bay
State, the Maine Age, the Harrisburg Keystone, the
New York Day Book, the New York News, the New
Hampshire Patriot, and the Boston Post; and we
peruse no journals with more interest or satisfaction
than we do these. They are all that any Southern
man could desire. They are now in the thickest of
the fight with the enemies of the South and of the
Union ; and we can assure our readers that they are
more unsparing and severe, if possible, towards the
abolitionists than we are. See how those noble pat
riots strike for the Union according to the Constitu
tion ! what ardor, what vehen.ence, what earnest
ness, what steadiness, what vigor and boldness, as
if all the hopes of mankind hung upon their action !
God speed and sustain them in their mighty workl
It is the cause of all mankind, for if this Consti
tution be destroyed, in what direction can the eye
of the patriot look with hope ? But they cannot
fail the majority of the Northern people cannot be
mad. They must see. and thev do see. the blackness
j
of darkness into which the Fremont men would
harry them. The papers are filled with accounts of
immense Buchanan mass meetings; and Democratic
speakers and writers, by thousands, in all the
free States, are exerting themselves with a power
and a will never before witnessed. Maine may have
gone over to theblack flag even New Hampshire
may tremble -in the storm, and at last desert us ; but
Pennsylvania stands like the Alleghanies and the
great Northwest will do the rest " Never despair
of the Republic. " The darkest hour, we are told,
is always before day ; but the light of Democracy
never goes out, and there is no darkness to those
who " walk by faith." We have that faith. We be
lieve that Providence will shield and save this Union,
against all the powers of earth and hell ; and we be
lieve that black Republicanism is, of itself, and in
itself, the largest instalment of perdition that ever
came up to afflict this planet
1 How goes the fight ?" is the question asked us
by our friends in the North. We answer, the South
v ill vote as a unit for Buchanan what will the
North do f " She will do all that men can do" is
the reply ; " and if we fail, take care of yourselves.
2 he traitors must conquer us before they can reach
you. Dissolution wilt not be all ot the boutn, or in
the South it will be here, as well as there ; and the
traitors, if they succeed,- will do so at a fearful cost
or' blood." But let us elect Buchanan, and avoid all
these calamities. What says New Jersey? The
Trenton True American says :
1 We are happv to find that the democracy of the State
are rousiuir up in an aireclions. uur ueigtioors in Hunter
don county are mustering in every direction. A meeting is

Corner on the 11th, and delegate meetings in all the town
ships on the 13tu.tustaut. The meetings in other parts are
so numerous that we tind it difficult to keep the track of
them.
A correspondent of the " True American " at Bur
lington writes :
' The Buchanan and Breckinridge Club held a mass meet-
ii g at the City Ilull on Saturday evening last. Long before
t'ue hour announced, the large hall was tilled to its utmost

We give below other extracts, showing the feeling
of the Democracy of the free States :
Picking theib Flints We learn (says the Ohio States
man) from vuuHt reliable correspondents in Iiwa, that the
prospects in that State ibr Buchanan and Breckinridge are
very uauering. liie result ot tne August election lias

hare resolved to organize our forces and bring out the full
democratic strength which no man ot intelligence, and
who is posted as to that estate, doubts will enable the dem
ocracy, to give her electoral vote to their presidential
ticket.

cements in a number of our Pennsylvania and Ohio ex

"How Goes thk Fight? Speaking of the great politi
cal commotion wbicn is now telt to an unexampled degree
in all parts oi tne State ot Illinois, tne at. liouis Republi
can savs:
" We could fill up our columns with notices of meetings
occuring every week in various parts of the State, but this
is hardly necessary. The Freinonters have broken them
selves down in the race, even before the adversary has got
fairly under way, and this will give a tremendous advantage
toBuchanac as the day of election approaches. If there
was at any time a doubt of the result, we have very little
now. Mr. liucnanan will carry tne state tiiumpuantly.
Another co temporary says :
"At the immense mass mettmg at Taylorville, Christian
county. Illinois, on the 16th, the first speaker was General
Thornton, of Shelby ville, who said that he had always been
a whig, but he could not go into the camp of abolitionism,
but would follow henceforth ' the true and noble banner of
democratic principles.' It'umbers of old-line whigs sur
ruuuded him at the close of his address and avowed their
intention to vote for Buchanan. CoL McClcrnaud aud O.
B. Fickliln were among the speakers. A hickory pole 110
fact high was raised upon the occasion ; and in the pro
cession the first team next to tbe band was loaded with
thirty-one of the 'fairest of the fair,' dressed in white; in
the centre of the wagon stood a hickory pole thirty feet
bigh, upon which floated the stars and stripes. There were
upwards of six hundred waaons in the procession ; estimat
ing ten to each wagon would make over six thousand per
sons in the procession, besides those who came on horse
back and on foot."

Dr. Hawks' History of North-Carolina.
- The Senior Editor of the Fayetteville Observer
writes from New York that he was consummating
arrangements for publishing the Rev. Dr. Hawks'
History of North-Carolina a work which is looked
for with much interest, and which cannot fail to' be
a valuable contribution to our literature. The first
volume, containing the period between the first voy
age to North-Carolina and the end of the 16th cen
tury, is now ready for the press, and will make about
250 pages. Of the size of the subsequent Volumes
the Editor cannot judge, as that will depend on the
amount of materials for different: epochs and sub
jects; ' ' 1 : '
We are gratified to-findf that these gentlemen are
moved byvthe common Southern feeling, which dis-
regards all mere party considerations in order to de
feat Jtremont, the sectional, abolition candidate; and
we are bound to believe that they will go to Balti
more for the sole purpose of uniting oh the strong
est candidate to effect that object Who is that can
didate? Beyond all Question. James Buchanan.
This, it seems to us, is- too clear to require argu
ment. Mr. Buchanan is morally certain of fifteen
States, while no one will claim even one State as
certain for Mr. Fillmore. '
But with whom are these gentlemen going into
Convention f With, for example, Massachusetts
Whigs for we Bee it stated that Massachusetts will
be represented at Baltimore indeed, delegates were
appointed at a Convention recently held in that
State. We have the proceedings of that Conven
tion before us, in a Boston paper. Among other res
olutions, the following was adopted
Resulted, That the opinior s heretofore expressed by the
whig party of Massachusetts upon the repeal of the Mis-
ouuii vumproimse are stui tneir opinions, only connrmea
by time: and they believe that the fierce and daneurous el
ements of discord now let loose by that act. can never be
put to rest until that healing measure shall be practically
re-enacted, and the territory once solemnly dedicated to
freedom be received into the Union as a free State."
Can the old line Whigs of North-Carolina con
sent to occupy that ground? Are they-willing to
co-operate with Northern Whigs, who would de
grade them, by restoring the Missouri restriction?
It cannot be possible.
The same Convention in Massachusetts, which
passed the above resolution, expressed a preference
for Millard Fillmore. Now, is it not clear, if Mr,
Fillmore should be nominated at Baltimore, and the
Massachusetts Whigs should refuse, as they certain
ly will, to surrender their opinion about the Missou
ri restriction, that the North-Carolina Whigs will
either have to acquiesce in that opinion, or the two
sections Massachusetts and North-Carolina will
have to support Mr. Fillmore on two grounds, di
rectly opposite, on the question of slavery ? Is not
that clear? We think so. But will North-Caroli
na Whigs thus acquiesce ? We think not. They
are true men at heart, and they cannot do it, they
cannot occupy this black Republican ground ; for
we assert it, and defy contradiction, that the main
object of the black Republicans in the present strug
gle a just what is set forth in the alone resolution
the practical re-enactment of the Missouri restric
tion, and the admission of Kansas as a non-slave'
holding State.
Mr. Moore's Address.
We received and read, some time since, a copy of
the Address of Mr. Moore, in June last, before the
two Literary Societies of Wake Forest College ; but
on account of the pressure of political duties, we
failed to notice it. We adopt the following notice
of thia production from a late number of the War-
renton News. The Editor of the News, though his
style is somewhat glowing, has done no more than
justice to the Address :
" Mr. B. F. Moose's Address. Our thanks are due to a
young friend and former pupil for a copy of an " Address
before the Kuzelian and Phitomathesian Societies of Wake
Forest College, delivered Wednesday, June 11, 1S56, by B.
F. Moore, Esq." which we have read with unfeigned plea
sure and gratification. There is scarcely any man within
the entire range of our acquaintance, better qualified by
talent, education, wisdom and experience for furnishing
sound counsel and good advice to young men, standing on
the isthmus bet ween youth and mauhoud, and ready to em
bark on the untried voyage of life, than the accomplished
author of the address 'betbre us; and faithfully aud well
has he discharged the office assigned him by the kindness
of his youthful friends. The prominent topic of this ad
mirable etlbrt is the progress ot science and the incalcula
ble benefits that it has bestowed upon mankind in general,
as contributing to the welfare of the masses and as con
ducive to the refinement and elevation of society. It is a
coble theme, and nobly is it handled. As we have devoted
our life to the instruction of youth, we may be pardoned
for expressing the wish that Mr. Moore's address, so replete
with valuable lessons ot wisdom to tue young, abounding
in truth enforced with masterly ability, and calculated to
effect so much good to the rising generation, as well as to
those advanced in years, (for it is designed to benefit all,)
could be carefully read and thoughtfully considered by
every man. woman and child in North Carolina. We have

Welcome to Hon. N. P. Banks, Speaker of the
House of Representatives. AVorcester, Mass., Sep.
6. A crowd of two to three thousand persons as
sembled here at noon to-day to welcome the Hon.
N. P. Banks. He was addressed by Hon. Henry
Chapin on behalf of the committee, and responded
in a brief and appropriate speech.
Boston, Sept. 5. Mr. Banks was received at
Waltham this afternoon by 20,000 persons. He was
met at Newton, and escorted to Waltham by a pro
cession of the civil and military powers. Mr. Haies
addressed him, welcoming him back. Mr. Banks
replied in an elaborate speech, occupying over an
hour and a half in its delivery.
The "Daily Bay State," printed at Worcester,
Massachusetts, slates that the reception of Banks
was a slim affair in every respect. The crowds were
small, and there was but little enthusiasm. The
above accounts, like many others, were manufactur
ed for effect by unprincipled and lying black Re
publicans. 53?" We observe among the names of delegates
appointed by the recent old line Whig meeting held
here, to the Baltimore Convention, that of the Hon.
Geo. E. Badger. That Convention may endorse Mr.
Fillmore, and in that event Mr. Badger will be
bound to support him. Mr. Badger voted for the
Kansas Nebraska act, and in a speech on the ques
tion he vindicated and sustained the repeal of the
Missouri restriction. Mr. Fillmore declared in a late
speech, that " this repeal seems to have been a Pan
dora's box, out of which have issued all the political
evils that now afflict tbe country scarcely leaving
a hope behind." This is what Mr. Fillmore charges
on Mr. Badger. He charges him with having aided
in bringing the country to a condition in which
there is scarcely a hope left for its salvation ; and
yet Mr. Badger is expected to support Mr. Fillmore
for the Presidency I
A Free Country. A landlord or landlords have a per
fect right to their political opinons, and so have Southern
merchants visiting New York a perfect right to give their
patronage to whom they please. It may not be amiss, there
fore, to state, that the Astor House is the head-quarters of
iremont and irecsouism, in this city. Its landlords nave,.
it is said, fitted up a room expressly for Thurlow Weed,

Will our Democratic friends who are fond of couDHncr
Americanism with Abolitionism, publish the following re
solution adopted by the Democratic State Convention of
Ohio in February fast?
" Resolved, That, the people of Ohio, now as tfiev have al
ways dune, look upon slavery as an evil and unfavorable to
tne development ot tree institutions, and that, entertaining
these sentiments, they will, at all times, feel it to bt their
duty to use all power clearly given by the terms of the na
tional compact, to prevent its increase, to mitiirate and
finally to eradicate its evils."
Wilmtngton Herald.
The Herald is mistaken about this matter. The
above resolution was adopted in 1855 ; but in 1856,
in their State Convention, the Democrats of Ohio
passed as sound resolutions on the subject of slavery
as were adopted in any free State. They were rep
resented in the Cincinnati Convention, and their
delegates voted unanimously for the platform there
adopted, which the Editor of the Herald will no
doubt cheerfully admit to be sound, so far as slavery
is concerned. Will the Herald correct its mistake?
We know what we have here stated to be so.
The Herald speaks of " coupling Americanism
with Abolitionism." Does not the Herald know
that the " twelfth section " on slavery, which was
in the main sound, was adopted by the Know Noth
ings in national Convention, in June, 1855, by a
bare majority ; and that within two months after
the Convention adjourned every K. N. Council in
the free States had repudiated that twelfth section
Answer us, Mr. Herald. Again, does not the Her
ald know that in the last K. N. national Convention
this twelfth section was stricken out ; and that the
Northern Know Nothings, nineteen-twentieths of
whom arc abolitionists, left that Convention, and
afterwards declared for Fremont? As a general
rule, " Americanism " and " Abolitionism " in the
free States are one and the same.
Again, we ask 'the Herald if Mr. Fillmore has
ever expressed a sentiment which showed his willing
ness to see slavery extended. Nay we go further
than this is he not now opposed to the Kansas
Nebraska act, which opened new Territories to the
slaveholders of the South? Answer us that, Mr.
Herald. Again: While President of the United
States he wrote a letter to the people of Boston, in
which he spoke of slavery as an " evil," and ex
pressed the hope that it might, in the course of time,
cease to exist Is this denied ? If so, we will pro
duce the letter. Yes, he apologized to a Boston
mob, deeply inflamed against the South, for the ex
istence of an institution sanctioned by the Bible and
recognized in the federal Constitution ; and in doing
so, he placed under the ban, socially as well as po
litically, the people of fifteen States of the Union 1
What right had he, occupying the seat of Washing
ton, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Polk, Ty
ler, and Taylor all slaveholders to utter his pri
vate opinions against slavery, and thus reflect on
these illustrious men and on fifteen sovereign States
of the Union ? The Herald " strains at a gnat." but
" swallows a camel." If the Ohio Democrats were
in error, they have seen their error, and taken bet
ter ground ; but how is it with Mr. Fillmore ? Can
the Herald show that he has ever taken back the sen
timents expressed in his Boston letter ? Gov. Wise
stated, not long since, that while serving with Mr.
Fillmore in the House of Representatives, he, Mr.
Fillmore, more than once declared that he was
" disturbed ly the clanking of the chains on the
slaves in the District of Columbia P' How will the
Herald explain that ? Mr. Buchanan declared, in
his place in the House of Representatives, thirty
years ago, that if necessary HE WOULD BUCKLE
ON HIS KNAPSACK, AND MARCH TO THE
DEFENCE OF THE SOUTH AGAINST THE
ABOLITIONISTS. We speak from the record see
" Gales and Seaton's Register of Debates," vol. 2d,
1826, page 2,180. And yet the Herald would have
its readers helieve that Mr. Buchanan cannot be
safely trusted on the question of slavery !
The election of Mr. Fillmore is as certain, if every Amer
ican will but do his duty, as that the sun will rise to-mor
row, (signal.
So was the election of Mr. Gilmer certain, but he
managed to fall behind some 13,000 votes. Some
of the K. N. papers say that that was owing to the
" prejudice " and " ignorance " of the people. It
was owing to Mr. Gilmer's; want of votes, to say
nothing of the unpopularity of Mr. Fillmore and the
popularity of the Kansas-Nebraska act The single
and simple, fact that. Mr, Fillmore is a sworn third
degree Know Nothing, is sufficient to defeat him.'
Tell a man, five years hence, that he was once a Know"
Nothing, and he will resent it as an insult y"? r

I Samnef Wells.fDem.1 Sa tnembers of Cdnrtrea
were votea tor in addition to tne osuat state omcerg.
The returns, as far. as received,' indicate that the
State, has gone strong for the Republicans; v Port
land, Bath, Bangor, Augusta, Rockland, and other
large town, shows Republican 'gains overjast year,
which if carried through the State will elect Ham
lin by over 12,000 majority. '..y 1
ine vote last year stood as follows :
For Merrill, (Repub.) 51.488 : for Wella (Denti
48,373 ; for Reid, (Whig.) 10,645. "s ; - r . ' . .
- A plurality does not elect State officers in Maine.
Last year the Whigs united with the Democrats in
tbe .Legislature and elected Wells, (Dem.) the pre
sent Governor, who was re-nominated by his party.
Reporter.'- : ,
Messrs. Wood and Gilman, Republicans, are elect
ed to Congress in the first and second districts. '
second despatch. ,
PowiAm, Sept 8.10 P. M. Returns from fifty-
one towns give Hamlin, Republican, for Governor,
18,400; Wells, Dem., 10,000; Patten, Whig, 2,600.
- The vote of Portland stands Hamlin, Repub., 2,438 ;
Wells, Dem., 1,756 ; Patten, Whig, 858. .
Portland, Sept 9. 167 towns give Hamlin, 40
000, Wells 24,000, and Patten 4,000. Wood and
Gilman are certainly elected to Congress. There
suits in the other districts are not certainly known.
Not one Democrat or Whig Senator is elected as far
as near a from. The House is largely Republican. .
We shall most probably receive further news from
Maine before going to press. The Washington Union
attaches but little credit to the foregoing, and warns
its readers against deceptive telegraphic despatches.
The Democratic.strongholds in Maine had net been
heard from.
Mr. Fillmore, we-are told by his friends here, is
the strongest candidate next to Fremont in the free
States ; yet we see no account of Fillmore votes or
of a Fillmore party in Maine. The same is true as
to Iowa and Vermont The contest is between the
Democrats and black Republicans, the oW line Whigs
polling a few votes. The truth is, as a general thing
black Republicanism has absorbed Know Nothing-
ism in the free States, and thus left Mr. Fillmore
without strength even in that quarter ; and every
one can perceive how weak he is in the South.
One of the "Old Fogies." William C. Rives,
who is at present very active among the " old line
Whigs " of Virginia, has been thoroughly exposed
by the Washington Star. He applied in person, it
seems, not long since, for admission into a Know
Nothing Lodge in Alexandria, and was refused ad
mission. He subsequently applied to another Lodge,
and was accepted. A meeting was held to initiate
hiin, but he was not forthcoming. He concluded to
back out, and was called away from Alexandria
rather suddenly. How humiliating it must have
been to gentlemen, to be poking about from point to
point, seeking a chance to be admitted to the Know
Nothing culvert 1 Mr. Rives is now an " old line
Whig," and, like Mr. Nat Boyden and others we
could name in this State, we trust he will remain
one. Such persons can best serve their country in
a minority.

Affairs in France are dull. The Emperor and
family continue at Barritz. Napoleon is said to be
suffering much from diseased liver.
Spain. "Nothing definite," (stereotyped.) Gov
ernment has been chiefly occupied appointing new
officers for all the civil departments, principally
from the Liberal party.
It was announced that a decree would appear in a
few days suppressing the whole of the National
Guards. That of Madrid has already been disarmed.
In Portugal the bread riots are suppressed. The
cholera in Lisbon is declining. A great many ar
rests by the troops of citizens, had been made, in
consequence of the riots.
The arrival of a French Squadron had created
much excitement
The Grape Harvest is a complete failure.
Samuel Medaby. Most heartily do we endorse
the following handsome tribute to the veteran lead
er of the Ohio democracy, which we find in an ex
change: "The old wheel-horse of the Ohio democracy is
laboring for the success of correct political princi
ples with a zeal, an energy, and an efficiency that
entitle him to the thanks of true-hearted - men and
women everywhere. At no former period of his
long and chequered editorial career has Colonel Me
dary given such demonstration of his high devotion
to the causb of the people as in the present can
vass. Mr. Buchanan was not his first choice in the
Cincinnati Convention ; but no sooner was the nom
ination made than, casting aside individual prefer
ences, he went into the canvass with the might of a
true man who dares and will do all that truth and
right may require.
Honor to Samuel Medary 1 All honor, we say, to
the man who, lor more than a quarter of a century,
Amid the battle's rout and reel,
Storms of shot and hedge of steel,'
has carried prou dly aloft the standard of the democ
racy of Ohio. Since he first identified himself with
the democratic cause, the party has passed through
strange vicissitudes, but whether it rode on swelling
waves of glory or struggled through darkness and
tempest his port has ever been the same. Whole
squadrons have deserted the democratic ranks in pe
rilous times, as summer soldiers and sunshine pat
riots are wont to do, but Medary has always stood
firm. You know where to had him. . xou can cal
culate him liko a planet"
Important from Kansas. y
St. Louis, Sept 9. Advices from Kansas to Sep
tember 5th, say that Lane, with one hundred and
fifty men, attacked Tecumseh on tbe 4th of Septem
ber, but no particulars are given. Judge Lecompe
had issued orders to the marshal to arrest Lane and
the other agitators, and Gen. Smith had instructed
Col. Cooke at Fort Riley to give all necessary aid to
the marshal. Gov. Geary arrived, at Glasgow - on
Tuesday, where he met Gov. Shannon on his way
down. .. -v yV'Tvi-:
