A Review.
In oar paper of last week we publish
ed the ticket of the Union Mass County
Convention, and for lack of time briefly
observed that " it was anything but a
Union Convention." A more extended
notice of the Convention, its ticket, and
our purpose, past and present, in relation
thereto, seems to be demanded by events
w hit-h have transpired since the Mass
Convention was held.
It will be recollected that after the call
was published for the meeting of the Re
publican Convention, which was held on
the 5th of July, a paper was put in cir
culation calling the Mass Union Conven
tion. That paper in express words called
" the people of Orleans County without
regard to past political differences or di
visions, who are opposed to the repeal of
the Missouri Compromise, to the policy
of the present administration," &c., to
meet at Irasburgb on the 13th inst.,
ufor the purpose of nominating a candi-
date for Senator and Couxtt Offi
cers, Arc A majority of the names on
that paper were of men who belong to
the American, or Know Nothing, party.
T . . ...
stands this week in our paper at tlte head
ot tue latter t.eket. It was signed by
him who acted as chairman of the meet
ing held last Tuesday, and by thoMj of
thoe who were appointed on tlx Com
mam of tkat meeting. The Korth
Union in good faith said, the it U
signed by mm who have heretofore acted
with all the different political partfc ;

e o.. of tte a.lKta for Judjc .nd I lave ,o L 2 i "
hand-wrmng of the candidate whose name
it invoked " ibe people to come together
and decide for themselves who shall be
their candidates." - The people met, the
Union says, to the number of about one i
thousand, though we think the estimate j
too large by about one half. The Con-
vention was called to order by the present
American candidate for Senator. On
motion of the candidate of the latter par
ty for State's Attorney, a committee to
nominate officers of the Convention was
appointed, and the present County Clerk
was of the Committee who reported the
resolutions of that Convention. "We
signed the call for that Convention "and
were disposed in good faith to snpjxtrt its
ticket, as a union ticket, a compromise
ticket, a people's ticket, a tiekertnade up
" from principle," and without regard to
past political differences or divisions."
There were four candidates who were of
the American party and three who were
uot. We thought it a liberal concession
to the American party to w hich we have
hitherto belonged. Its basis seemed to
be a disregard of " past political differ
ences," and we think it would have been
acquiesced in by the people, by the mass,
but for the aspiring ambition of " politi
cal demagogues," who
. tsti sraa ffroan
For the public good and menu their cum."
Why docs the American party, why
especially do those Americans who sign
ed the call for the Mass Convention, and
participated in its proceedings, bolt the
ticket of tLat Ctiiventiou, repudiate its
. proceedings, and rally a distinct party
'caucus, and nominate a distinct party
ticket if their faith was an honest faith ;
if their profession was a truthful profes-j
sion, when they signed the call for the j
Mass Convention and acted Jherein?;
j
Their action in the Mass Convention!
when i'3 nominations were announced,
and their subsequent proceedings which
we this day publish, constrain us to dis
trust their original fidelity to their pub
lished profession, or rather we are there
by assured of their lack in that particu
lar. Now,4hey profess to be Fremont
and Dayton men. For their country's
sake God grant they may prove so ! But
what better guaranty have we for this
profession than the other ? What better
security that, when the time for trial
comes, their votes will not be cast for
Fillmore and Donelson, the candidates
of their party, instead of Fremont and
Dayton, the candidates of the mass?
We cannot but distrust them. In the
Mass Convention "vaulting ambition
o'erleaped itself" the secret purpose of
the Americans to control all, and have
all, was defeated, and we see in this dav's
paper the consequence of secret persona! !

Had this been the spirit of the men whose
recent action we are now discussing, we
should not be under the disagreeable ne
cessity of publishing to day, under their
authority, the evidence of their recreancy
to their own professions.
We regard their action as disturbing
the peace, the union, and harmony of the
Mass Convention ; as breaking up and
destroying every hope ard prospect of
electing the ticket there nominated ; and
so regarding it we see no other course
consistent for us but to withhold the tick
et of that Convention from our columns.

attention to the advertisement of the
" People's Academy" in another column.

Democratic Convention.
Mr. Editor : Much has been said
about the Mass Convention of the Demo
cratic party to be held at Barton, and of
the talented speakers to be there and the
truthslo be promulgated, that I expected,
as a matter of course, a thousand or some
thing near it, would be present. But sir,
there were not one hundred Democrats
in the house to hear the speaking and do
the voting, for I counted every one, and
it amounted to just eighty-six. There
might have been twenty standing about,
beside, at least, twenty of whom belonged
to other parties, perhaps more. Now,
sir, if I was disappointed in the number,
I was equally so in their speakers, or
rather in the speeches made by them, for
they were made up of any amount of as
sertion, vitiperation, and coarse, and some
times vulgar anecdotes, which generally
"brought down the house," and some such
slang phrases as "Black Republican,"
"Nigger-worshipers," Natural fool Soci
eties, etc., etc, wtnie the remarks made
that they would call arguments, werg a
review of the differences between the Old
Line Whigs and Democrats, in former
campaigns, with an effort to shirk the re
sponsibility of the present disasterous af
fairs of the nation, upon the Republicans,
&C, and lauding the present administra
tion very highly, and commending Presi
dent Pierce for the course he has taken
in the Kansas outrages. The first speak
er, (Mr. Potts) asked, What could he
have done ? Could he stop the outrages
at the polls, unless Gov. Reeder inform
ed him that there would be trouble at the
first election ?" and it was also said by
several that day, that for four weeks past
no account of trouble had been received
from Kansas, Now, sir, here is an in
terim from the time the Missourians first
bullied the bogus legislature into office,
to the last four weeks, that not a word
was said about their beloved Presilent's
inactivity, nor they dare not. The sec
ond speaker, (Mr. Rand) said what the
whole party have denied : that the foun
dation rock upon which the pure Democ
racy stood was the institution of slavery.
That is true, and the only inference that
can possibly be drawn from his state
ments. The following are his state
ments : " We are directly opposed to the
Republican platform ;" again, " The old
line whigs have now joined with the ab
olitionists, and if they hold on they will
stand as long as the constitution, provi
ding they succeed, for when slavery is
abolished the constitution falls. There,
sir, if that is not owning that slavery is

is. JSo wonJer they wish for the exten
sion of the u Divine institution," that
they may continue to get rich with the
spoils from the public treasury, for they
feel assured that if the North should get
an equal share in the representation in
Congress, in proportion to the population,
with the South, they would stand but a
poor chance to get the " loaves and fishes,"
hence they go for the doctrine that " might
makes right," and against agitation ; that
the power that supports them :he slave
power may glut its capacious maw with
millions of square miles of territory once
devoted to the goddess of liberty, but
now thrown open by the assistance of
northern democrats who have betrayed
their trust, and pandered to the avarice
of the southern sectional faction ; to the
perpetuation and extension of slavery,
that spot which defaces our otherwise
beautiful escutcheon.
Their harmony and consistency of ar
gument as displayed at Barton, was de
lightful, and of a piece with all their do
ings. Mr. Rand says, Gentlemen, we
do not go for measures, but for princi
ples, but our opponents go for measures."
The third speaker, (Mr. Bowdisb) said
" Gentlemen, we wish them (the Repub
licans) to understand that we d not seek
for the offices or anything else of the
kind, but it is for measures we ea "
" When doctors disagree who shall de
cide?" They had a red hot Democrat
from New Hampshire, (an expelled mem
ber of the Know Nothings) to denounce
Know Nothingism, Republicanism, &c
who said that we and the republicans
would start equally in that state to get
the majority in their election, and to get
2,500 to make a majority they would
each have to do their best to obtain them
from that class that were unstable or fluc
tuating in their politics." He by this re
mark considered New Hampshire doubt
ful, but strange to say be made a leap
and said they no doubt would get many
from the ranks of the Know Nothings,
"and finally, gentlemen," bays he, we
shall- give 3000 majority for Buck and
Breck."
- m
Something was said of the two candi
dates Buchanan and Fremont the for
mer was without spot or blemish and uni
versally known, while the latter u
hardly known, as one speaker said, and j
men went on to tell for what he was
known, which amounted to more than
he said of Buchanan himself. The rent
of the speaking was made up of the usu
al clip-trap about tht Mi;;ouri Cm.
promise," Jansas Nebraska bill," Doug
las' Paciflhation Bill," ith eonsid
erable twatje about their mother's leav
ing sop in She frying pan, "Raw head
" little boys in bed,"
"Puppies' ars,tail" and such balder
dash, that tosay the least is a disgrace to
a man of as .nuch apparent ability as one
of the speakers.
If that vention was a fair specimen
of what the slavery estensionists can do
for Buchanai.he may be assured that he
will be elected by a grand majority, to
private life ia November nest.

The Clovei Foot Sticking Out!!
Mr. EDitrc: On Tuesday last the
Know Nothings met at Coventry in a
sort of County Caucus, secretly got up af
ter they fourS the democrats and repub
licans were nt going to unite, and voted
to draw back rom their Union Mass Con
vention, and iirow off every man nomi
nated in that Convention who is not a
Know Nothing, and fill their places with
Simon Pure's So they have got up a
regular boilev down Know Nothing tick
et from head to tail, and stand on the
same ground as last year. The same
Know Nothings who signed the call for
the Mass Convention, and who were non
inated for County Officers by that Con
vention wire the wire workers and getters
up of tb Caucus at Coventry, and all
hands w:nt unanimously for the Coven
try tieki. They voted to rally the lodges,
get out the dark lantherns, tighten the
trammts on such as kick, read the oaths
ever afiin ta any that have a conscience ;
threat the mutineers ; promise a sop or
tit to sich as are very hungry, and have
no meas of their own to act on, or live
by, till the woman that the Pope, that
great fcast full of eyes before and be
hind, wth seven heads and ten horns,
and a ail like the sea serpent is on the
marchand close to the line of Orleans
Count- with thunder, and lightning, and
brimsone, and two or three earthquakes
in hi. train ; and every ene of his seven
mouhs roaring as if it were the voice of
a ttousand bulls of Bashan, and to tell
thf Republicans that the Know Nothings
ac all going for Fremont and Dayton if
tley will only help to prevent the Pope
fwm swallowing them all before election
at a gulp.
Now then let's just salt the KnowNoth-
iigs down on the 1st Tuesday in Sept.
and see if "Salt wont save them." It
nay be necessary to salt them at the head
ii Salt river. We can do it. Say the
word and the wool flies. JAKE.

Tne Dark Lanthern Ticket.
About the first of July a call was is
sued for a Mass Convention at Irasburgb.
to nominate county officers the 13th of
August. The time came and a nomina.
tion was made with three names on the
list that did not belong to the order, but
this was no go. Old Esquire Rowell
must be thrown overboard and Judge
Durkee Cole restored to the ticket, so the
dark lanthern threw its sombre hues into
different parts of the county. A con
vention at Coventry is announced to fix
-t' "jci vi me loin. Anis con
vention eomes off on the 19th, and a few
dark lanthern bearers assemble. Strike
out the Senator of the 13th, Wm. B.
Cole, and insert one of the largest sized
dark lanthern men, and Esquire Rowell
is discharged, and Judge Durkee Cole, a
relialle man to do certain things, is bro't
on to the ticket, making it merely a dark
lanthern ticket and nothing else.
The manner of changing nominations
made by the masses, should be by the
masses, but the people think Missisquoi
valley should be considered in making
up the ticket, and that J udge Cole's claims
are no better than Judge Kellam's. But
Judge Kellam is not so reliable for par-
ucmar purposes as Judge Cole.
If there was ever an occasion to raise
the cry of proscription and combination
of secret influences and dictation, it is in
this transaction, and if the people are not
worse than priest-ridden by the dark lan
thern operators, they- will arise in their
strength and put down this foul play,
and teach the present official incumbents'
that their services are no longer required,
but that such men as Elijah Cleveland,'
F. S. F rench and Wm. J. Hastings, can
attend to the business.
For tbe Independent Standard.
Ma. Editor : A great national party.
organized and known throughout the
country as the republican party, exists
it has, or soon will have, an doctoral
ticket in every free stale, and several of
the ilave states, in the Union. It i8 pro
gressive, and overshadows now, all other
parties, cliques, clans, and cabala in the
country tve the great and formidable
rival, the democratic party. It l,ag a
sound and rational platform on which the
conservative men of the north and th
ultra abolitioniu have wet, as on a mid-
uie ground, heedless of the past and Lar
moniously toiling for tbe future. Its or
ganization and its developement sprung
from the exigence of the times and were
the work of great and patriotic bands.
It is composed of the uprisen masses,
whether they were before now democrats,
whigs, americans, abolitionists, protest
ants or catholics, foreigners, or "to the
manor born." Elsewhere the limes are
prolific of great accessions to its ranks.
East. West. North, on every one oi me
circles its fires are litghted, on highland
and lowland its banners floatin the breeze ;
from valley to valley, and from peak to
peak its shouts resound, and
Jura answers from her misty cloud,
Back to the joyon Alps again and cry aloud!"
The Central Comnnltee of this party
at Washington recommended to the peo
ple of the different states, counties, and
towns, to organize republican parties in
their several localities auxiliary to tbe
national party. This recommendation
has been generally acceded to ; it was
so in this county, for liberal, patriotic, and
unselfish purposes, notwithstanding earn
est effort in certain quarters to suppress
its call and propagate the idea that its
meeting for organization would not be
held. It was held, and has put forth a
nomination for county officers of men
good, fit, and true. These men stand
forth as the representations of the party,
personifying its principles and not as
the spawn of any nameless and betero
gene convention. They represent a party
whose foremost avowal is the advocacy
of free speech, a free press, and free men,
and whose principles have been recently
baptized in the blood of more or less of
its victims.
Shall this party have " aid and com
fort," encouragement aad accession, in
the b ounty ot Urleans i Can you sup
port that party in the country at large,
and in the State, and yet oppose its ae
tion in counties and towns ? "Oaks from
acorns grow." Aggregate from minute
parts are combined. How can you have
a national, or state republican party, if
its germs are not planted and nurteredin
smaller communities like counties and
towns : xt tuey are planted among
thorns how can you have vigorous growth
if thorns are permitted to spring up and
choke them ? Defer beyond this oppor
tune season the establishment of the re
publican party in this county, and where,
here, will the advent of that party be r
"Go thy way this time, when I have a
convenient season I will call for thee,"
has been the response of some who ad
vocate a "people's convention," or rather
some who were opposed to any local re.
publican movement. But when is that
convenient season to be ? There's the
rub ! Is it when rains shall have de
scended, and the floods have come, and
the winds have blown, and beat upon our
house and it has fallen? When the
democratic party, by reason of our alif n
ation from the republican ranks, shall be
firmly re-established in power ? When
slavery shall stride over Kansas and tbe
continent, and we shall sit under our
vines and fig trees with a few to "molest
us and make all afraid? Shall the re
publican party be ignored in the county
of Orleans by men who are republican in
principle, and for the purpose merely of
affording a triumph to men ? The ban
ner of that party is broad enough to cast
its shadow over all its disciples. If the
americans are truly republican in princl
pie, and in good faith mean to support
t remont and Dayton, and the republican
cause, they will follow the ark of the cov
enant, and cling around the altars of tbe
republican party. But are not some of
them attempting divisions from there-
publican ranks, aiming to get up a secret
nomination of a county ticket of their own
exclusive party, on the ground of last
year's canvass ? This is said to be a fact.
Let the republicans then be on the look
outlet them "beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheeps clothing,
out inwardly they areT-avening wolves."
If, like the border ruffians in Missouri,
they endeavor to impede us in our pilgrim
age to the plains of freedom, let us battle
for the right of way with strong arms and
stout hearts. "God will defend the ri"-ht!"

Terrible Storm at the South.
Not Less than 200 Lives Lost
New Orleans, Aug. 14. A terrible
storm occurred in this vicinity on Sunday,
which listed all day, and also all day on
Monday. Its effects, however, were most
disastrous at Last Island, a great summer
resort, and which our accounts represent
to have been entirely inundated. " Every
building on the islana is saw 10 naic
been swept away, and no less than one
hundred and thirty-seven lives are re
ported lost.
The steamer Star, Utpt. ftnutn, wnicn
left here on the 9th, encountered the storm
before reaching Last Island, and became
perfectly unmanagable, and was soon af
terwards a perfect wreck.
The scene among the passengers was
terrific, there being no less than 250 per
sons clinging to the wfecked fragments
of the vessel, each anxiously waiting the
arrival of some other vessel to take them
off. Whether any of this company have
been lost is not yet known, though hopes
are entertained that all were saved, as
a steamer is understood to have gone to
their relief.
Couillon Island has been submerged,
but the accounts from thence are very
meagre. It is reported, however, that
an immense amount of property and many
lives have been lost.
The ships Bowditch and Ellerslie, also
the Brig Creole, which were lying near
the mouth of the river, have all been se
riously damaged by the storm.
On the lake and river we also hearof
numerous steamboats, flatboats, and other
craft beinjr iniured. Nearly all the
wharves at the watering places have been
inundated, and the buildings thereon,
bath-houses, etc., swept away.
Altogether, the loss of property must
be very heavy, but it is impossible now to
calculate the amount.
The crops, it is feared, have also suffer
ed severely.
The steamship Philadelphia, just ar
rived from New York via Havana, cs
caped.the storm, and is now lying safely
at quarantine, with all well on board.
New Orleans, Aug. 15. Accounts
from Last Island verifythe sad story of
yesterday, It has been positively ascer
tained that 188 persons have been lost.
It is feared that Grand Cauillon Is
land, another watering place, h as also
been submerged, and that many lives
lost as well as property destroyed. The
corn, cotton and sugar crops have been
incalculably injured.
The steamers Nautilus and Perseverr
ance are several days overdue, and it is
feared something has happened to them.
Tha 3teanfch'p Texas has gone in search
of them. The storm extended far up the
river. At the Government Hosuital,
Baton Rogue, fourteen inches of water
fell between Sunday evening and Tues
day evening. The survivors at Last Is
land reached this city this morning. They
estimate the loss of life at 200. 188 have
already been counted as lost.
Second Dispatch. Many of the sur
vivors have arrived here. All from Last
Island are badly wounded and bruised.
The dead bodies at the Island were plun
dered by a set of pirates who inhabit it.
The steamer rersevearance has just ar
rived, but nothing has as yet been heard
from the Nautilus.
The Louisiana arrived at Galveston on
the 14tb, picking up on the way the cabin
door of the steamer Nautilus, which ves
sel, it is now supposed, was lost during
the late storm.
Nothing definite has yet been heard
from Caillon Island, but there has un
doubtedly been a great loss of life. It is
.reported that thirty bodies have been
found on one end of the Island. It is
supposed that at least $10,000 in money
in pockets fell into the hands of the pi
rates on Last Island, and about $5000
worth of baggage. The loss on this is
land is estimated at over $100,000. The
banks of the river at Bayou Sara caved
in, carrying away 300 residences, No
lives were lost. Several vessels were
blown ashore at the mouth of the Missis-
si j pi. 1 he telegraph lines have suffered
severely. The loss at Caillon Island
cannot full short of $G0,000. .
GT Morrill's Nashua and Boston Ex
press was robbed on Monday of a pack
age containing $2100 in money.
Cg" The steamer Cahawba tor.l- m,t
on Saturday upwards of one liuudred re
cruits for Walker, and a large quantity
of ammunition.
