ZHE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE SLAVE
8LALES.
'flia administration prints insist that
in revising the orecd of their party at
Ci icinna'i next June, decided ground
shall b; taken in fiver of th. nationality
of slavery. .The Richmond Enquirer df
yesterday s iys :
“ We must, in the Cincinnati platform.
Tep id nte Squatter Sovereignty and ex
pressly assert state equality. We must
da el arc that it is th* duty of the general
government to see that no invidious or
injurious distinctions arc made between
tti pee pic or the property of different
sections in the territories. We do not
meant) dictate. It may be that the a3
sertivn in ihe Platform of the abatra-t
proposition of state equ ility, may suffice
to carry along with it the consequences
which'we desire. 'Hist if is often charged
that the Kansas-Xebraska bill contains
the do .trine, of Squatter Sovereignty.
A id that Sq miter Sovereignty is the most
ebcient agent of frcetoilism. Some
north rn dom icrat-have muntained this
ground. N ov this gan must be spik’d.
It must aopenr fr imour platform that we
maintain practical state quality and repu
diata that construction of the Kansas
Xebraska act which would defeat it.—
The South, only demands equality ol
right. Tat more clearly it appears th it
th i northern de:n lcraey is rea ly to con
no le it to her, the more certain is our
candidate of success”
Mr. Cushing, the oth’r diy, ip. a
speech mad’ at the Slash Cottage, ex
press :d his veil iugness to concede whit
the E-iguitse calls the equality of the
states. (ly this equality of states is
if* lu.'.ii lilt? II^U. iu uuiu uv
companies th slaveholders in their rai
j rations, that their local institutions pass
with them into all the regions which are
held as the territories oi'th- cnnicdcr&cy;
and that finally, when the territoriei an
erected into states, the country should
ho divided between them in such a man
ner that for every free state admitted in
to the Union, a slave staie sh ill he a luiit
tol at the sana time. Ti.is was Mr
Cushing's scheme ; this is the plan refer
red to by the Richmond Enqiircr. The ]
territory "of the United States is to be
e pally shared between the oligarchy of j
the South and the rabble of the people.
For every new state settled by the peo
ple we must have a new state possessed
by the olig irehy. The few arc 10 receive
ns large a division of the great patrimony
of the public lands as the many.
The doctrine of popul »r sovereignty in
the tei ritorica would conflict with thisar
;ang-meat, and therefore it ought to be-1
•ban ion rd. It answered the purpose of ■
• bait to entice weak-minded pet-sons to j
the support of the Nt-briska bill ai:d o
a convenient excuse for the corrupt, uhj |
wanted a plausible reason for giving it
their v >tes ; but it is no longer any
use in cither respect, and it is therefor - j
rc munced. According to the present ;
doctrine of the administration,, neither;
i.'oagrcss nor the people arc sovereign in i
tie territories. The authority ot Con-!
;;rc*« is denied as peremptorily as the au
thority of the people. Neither the r.a- ;
trenal legisiatu e nor the colon'sis who :
go out from the o'd states have a right to j
say what shall be the institutions of : e
territories. On th it point it i3 the -live |
states and the slaveholders who are sov- j
oreigns. All that the general govern- i
taent has to do in the matter is to see that j
tney are protected in the enjoyment of11
this prerogative. [Evening Post.

What the Party is Made Or.—In
Cincinn :ti recently, th? Democratic nom
inating convention consisted of a hundre 1
and fifty-five delegates, more than two
hirds of whom were foreigners. Ninety
six of the delegates were Horn in C ath
olics, ar.d eighty-four foreign Roman
Catholics. Of th ■ eight Candidates elect
'd, five w rc foreigners, aud it was with
grant difficulty that the foreign and Ko
nan Catholic portion of the convention
could be prevailed on to let tne natives
have three of the nominees. They did
lot give their consent till after much and
earnest persuasion.
The Amendments to the Consti
tution.—In the Supreme Ju lieial Court
tor Cumberland County Judge Goodenow
presiding, it is sta ed that Sneriff Baker
presented a p titun for a writ of man
tamus vs the Couutv Treasurer, for his
salary. Onjections was made to th; ju
risdiction of the County, hut it was
overruled The case was carried up to
the full bcueh on a statemdnt of facts, so
ih.t the question of the Constitutional
amendments will come up for adjudica

' FRIDAY MORN1NO, MAY 9, ISifi.
. -‘IS TUB DEMOCRATIC PARTY UNDER PRO.
TEST.”
Such was the exclamation of some of
the wild i at leaders herp. on hearing that
Lot M. Morrill Ksq. had made a speech
in the Senate of Maine, agains' Barnes
Liquor Bril.
This was no outbreak of passion and
ill feeling. It was the deliberate opinion.
'Iand is the sentiment of the coil heads
and bad hearts of the men who utter: I it.
I it makes known the eitima'ion in which
h thing, timid men. who think th-v be
' long to the Sham damocriey, are held by
the bold and unscrupulous lead rs.
Those who have until now, kept up a
kmd of stan ting in the party, under the
dalusi' c hope that better counsels woul 1
prevail, and belt t men would assume the
lead in shaping the policy, and marking
out the present md fut ir ■ course of what
I now is only tiled uiocratic party in nam ?
| must be undeceived. They cannot still
hope on, unless they meekly a qi,rsc
in every new demand .bat is nmlcfor
asurr nder of old principles and their
p retinal honor and integrity. This is
evidt nt to the least observing. It re
quirt s no Seer, nor docs it require any
know ledge or practice in the art of palm
' i istrif to det.rm nt. this malt r. The po
litical value ol all these men "under pro

j iv doors oi tae lea Icrs, w.th all t ic ac
' curacy that a dealer in eott m in a South
i ern market rates and describes the quali
fies of the South's great stiple aiticlc.
This is not only tru’, and not only pa
: tent to the most ordinary mind but it is
equally true tout all the timid, doubting
men, w .o are tro ib e 1 about th.-ir p >sl
I tion, aud are uneasy and r s ive under

Mr. Editor.—On the l’7th day of
April, I860, the catholic chapel in your
place "'as dcairoyed by tire. From sup
position it is generally considered the
work of an incendiary. •• These are the
last dying struggles of Know nothingism!
We'll g t over these things bye und bye,
Will,am.■’
Thus the patriotic “ Wild-cat'* office
holder speaks to the afflicted l itholie
I Irishmen upon the m iming succeeding
this reck’css d< struetion of property
From these leading constructive I r.iins
this s ntime it ra liatcs over the whole
comniU’iity and is heralded hy their own
iluti ul press; s throughout th; land (vide
' Bungor Journal where it sp-aks of this
jmatt-r as the "climax" of K. ,N pro
seription.)
Symp ;thy in adversity is powciful for
exerting good or evil It is a fact h arned
hy experiment. or frit to be true hy in
tuitive perception. It r quires no tact
no superior intel igence, no genius, n..t
even comm n ability to kn nv it. None
know its effect more t* oroughly than the
dishonorable wire puffing politician. To
this gratitude for sympathy—so promi
nent in the Irish cn racter— ho Wil
eat" po itician ofE Isivorth and els> where
appeal to enlist the influence of l atholie
voters.
While the ruin* were y t burning and

dread, fearful erics rent ihc midnight air!

the maddened Irish woma i as* e rushed

Do ye acorn this? Arc thine f:t>
dumb to r ason ? Then list to stubborn:
fiict, and close thy slandering mouth
open so long against the honesty of thy
fellow mm! Li-t, while you h ar the
depraved owner of 'he old worthies* house
still m ire vehemently, violently, desper
ately than the rest declare “ Ye ncedn t
lame any body for this—n > m m set thi*
house afire—a woman done it—I done it
myself an 1 I had a right to do it." Let
us not throw g i It on any class. We de
sire tu rebuk • tlio-e who move with a
g-ave sanctifi >d -ymp thising air i U •
throw such charges of wrong upon their!
Icilow mm.
Deep an 1 dark is the guilt of that j
spirit that p ans or aids the incendiary in
his fiendish acts.
liu’ how m ich <irrprr an 1 'Viler must
lie the guilt of tha intelligent man who
place* th** honor, integrity and justice of I

In ccuelusion I would ask every io

[iiiot, and peace which has existed in

ant tnem in sustaining suck a grave 8
barge against men whose policy is peace ? |
Would it be f r tho interest of this ]
