J It had Keen Ina privilege to be preaent at the Philadelphia Convention, of which they bad had a graphic report from their representative, Mr Aandlord. -But there were some of the scenes and some of the incidents that occurred . . ihete which, nerh ins. miwhl not nave 1 . r r - r a ntting pUee in mi address on eub jeota ao aerioua and so grave, and so earnest in their truthfuloeaa, aa thoee to whieh refrrenee had already been made, hut which it might not be in appropriate for him to refer to here In looking about for a Vice-President the question arose as lo who the man should be; and while they were in de liberation an aged gentleman came forward, represen ing the Slate of II linoia, and addressed the assembly in favor of his friend. M-. Lincoln, of the same State. Mr. Lincoln was known to but few of the gentlemen present; but after the gentleman by whom he was supported had described aM his virtues and capability, and was about to leave the stand, a delegate rose. and, with great aeriouaneaa and quiet ness aaid: "There is one question I should like to ask Col. Archer the speaker from Illinois. He has depict ed to us in glowing terma the virtuea of Mr. Lincoln, but there is one thing that I muht besatisöed about before 1 can vote for him: "Can he 6ghl?" Ch-ers Never sprang an arrow from the bow of an acher with greater vivacity and energy than did that old gentle man spring from the floor and shout, "He will." Renewed cheers J The vast assembly burst into a cheer that almost rent the very heavens. And has noi the time come now for no to ask the same queation, when our Senators are struck down in the Senate Chamber, when Cains are abroad, and one io shattered on the brow of a man who is himself the em blem of personal and political purity. Loud cheers for Sumner, followed by triajitful groaning for Brooks. There waa present a gentleman in the Phila delphia Convention aa a delegate, whose name, when he was announced aa one of the Committee on Creden tials, elicited a most thundering cheer It was a name whieh was familiar to the ears of this audience, and the men tion of which would meet with a cor dial reapor.se in their hearts the name of Passmore Williamson. Loud cheers. 1 And he, too, was the victim of another Kane, f Cheers and laugh ter. Asu m Mr. Sumner suffered from tl e hands of one Cain, and wa confirmed to his l ed, and subjected to medical treatment for the injuries thus inflicted, the other man whs deprived of his natural and inalienable right of life, of liberty, and of the pursuit of happiness by another Kane; he was incarc rated within stone walls, torn from hia family at a period when it waa most distressing to him to be ab sent from the pariner of his bosom. And if either man suffered more than me other, it was he upon v. Horn was inflicted that outrage under the sane tion of judicial office. He (Mr. An drews) did not know that he could make his spetch in the mild, the am faVl 0.0. ft " f 1 I itto-e. anu ine moderate tone which ihev had heard. Thtv lind heen told upon all hands that nothing could be said against James Buchnnon; lhat he .a.a &.. 1 was a very respectaoie man, mat ne was a very sober man. and conse quently, that he must be regarded with great care and with great de re nee. He did not participate in lhat feeling. He was not dispoaed to lei Mr. liuchanran pass with impunity when he and thone about nun were heaping abuse upon the Republican candidate, or belying iheir (ibe K" publicans) principles, or denouncing iheir plnilo: m. 7 his wraa not a lime to be mealy mouthed in dealing with a man and his principles. And who mas James Buchanan, and what had Jamea Buchanan done (hat he pre -ented himself before (hem and psked for their suffrages? It was true that he had lived long, and so did a don key. Cheers and laughter J Might hia shadow never grow less, and miglu he live a thousand years. But mill. if he were a second MethusaUh it would not, unless he possessed some other virtue, preaent any claim on iheir favorable conideralion. If be had lived long he had but consumed more ol the L-ood things of this earth; he r - had fm lined the more out of the pub lie crib. And while he sat with his feet under the mahognnv of the Em peror Nicholas, one of the greatest ty rants the world ever saw; and whi'e he waa hobnobbing with my Lord Palmerstou and my Lord Clarendon. and the count lhi. and the lord that, wb-n wao Fremont lerinft Their op comDle ,n( someother gentleman, un ponenu taid that ! aa living on j,non to me wUtive to Governor grasshopper Crakes i I mule soup Cheers and laughter. I In regard to J arm a Buchanan, it nun who had been clothed in purple rand fine linen pvrrr dev. and now in the si.adesoi Lancaster had retired, he trusted to arvan.t in Mcfl the remainder of Lis daya, he (Mr. Andrews) colled upon ihero not to drag that man of so many years and some inbrmities irom tnai peaceful abode. Louu appiause anu lauuhter.1 There was another tea- It re in Mr. Buchanan lo whioh he waa compelled to call their notice He waa grieved to do ao. Il wu painful to point lo a man who had lost a limb, a r s ii. hand, an arm. or a leg. uui iwr. Buchanan's infirmity surpassed all these. It was simply Ibis that he had no backbone. Loud cheers i trusted that they would not make ' the application of lhat remark that ! u.A J-. k. MA .... WB,U F-u." MV T. "J" 1 mean to refer to any Hung peculiar ia Mr. Buchanan's physical relations in life. Laughter. Bot Mr. Bochanan wao a man who ta worked by strings. When the Federalists had him, they pulled tho airing, ond bo aaid if he had a drop of Democratic blood in hia veins he would let it oot. And so it waa when he kx came a Democrat, and so it waa when he stultified bimaelf by hia statement to Lord Clarendon, that he would hrtve much pleasure in trans mitting to hia Government the die patches which wore subsequently flung indignantly into tho face of hia Lordship. Il waa his ( Mr. Andrews) fear in trusting J ameo Buchanan, that he had not resolution and courage, and firmness and boldness, and indi viduality of character enough to en able him to sit at the helm of affairs, and to pilot our bark with safety.- Would they trust a man like that? Cries of ' No, lever." Ho wes not the man who could bo trusted a man who takes his color from every object with which ho is brought into contact, and who changea bid tone witn every phasing gale. They wanted firmness, they wanted resolution, "hey wanted energy, they wanted self-denial, they wanted courage, they want ed boldness, they wanted youth. And these were the atlributeo of tho man who waa pre-ented for their suffrages here. Loud cheers It waa a mat ter of great distrust with those who approached three score years and ten, that there are young men in the world, and that they claim their part, ond lake an active share in modify ing the future course of our country. Who were the men who had achieved the greatest results, and accomplished the greatest objects on the face of the earthf Was Napoleon an old man? Woo Alexander the Great an old man? Had any of the conquerors of the old world reached their three aeore years and ten before they modo their mark upon the world? Mr. Buchanan waa too old to learn. He had begun nothing. Ho had ended nothing. He had left nothing even in the mid dle that wa happily arranged. Great laughter. He bad nothing to show to the preseat age, nor Lo posterity. Renewed laughter and cheers. But he (Mr. Andrews) found himself most unhappily situated in treating this branch of the subject, hia remarks having all a political bearing. Laugh ter. That, certainly, waa far from his purpose on so graye an occasion aa this. They hod met, not to praise Caesar, but to bury him. Laughter. And he, (the speaker,) in his own humble degree, might be supposed to be preaching James Buchanan's fu neral sermon, but they would inter rupt him with these unseemly shouts of laughter. LaugLter. I There were some measures with which Mr. Buchanan's name, was connected that Jecerved attention. Who was the Secretary of State who claimed 54 40' or fight, and then had to back down to 49 and slink? Under what Administration, and who formed part of it, was it, that a pass was given to Santa Anna, the most active enemy that this country ever had during the Mexican war? It waa under Polk a Administration, and Buchanan part of it. While ocolt and rremont were contending against the enemy, Polk a r a s Anu Buchanan were giving nim aia md security? They (the Republican Party had a standard bearer who waa .k r . a e rw in every way wormy oi tneir eoorto and auflrages. The first Columbus discovered these shores.

Buchanan and the Border Bofflant. Mr. John F.

Tom Benioo it a groat man. eirl Ho always hot boon a great man aince he haa been any man at all. He waa a great man, and a Senator from Missouri, with a bouse ot Washing ton, when John 0. Fremont waa a poor draughtsman and mappist. Fre mont would not have dared to propose to Col. Benton to run away with him Such a thing would not have occurred to him, for he regarded Col. Benton with becoming awo. But Col. Benton had a daughter, a sweet and amiable girl, of whom young Fremont was not at all in awe. Ho had passed many an evening in her company, and the oftener he saw her, tho oftoner he wished to tee her. Love overcame timidity, until one day ho found him self, bat in hand, with heated brea'h. in the presence of tho Great Tom Benton, asking him for hia daughter. But Tom would not do it. He was inexoriable, and he refused to do what in a few days afterwardt be wao ready to do Tom refused "to give him Jes sie." He alto forbade Fremont the House; but that the draughtsman eared little for, because it waa not the house he wanted. Finding all persua sion uselo's, the young couple deter mined to be married clandestinely, and oo they oet about the prelimina ries. They found the protectant clvr gy over-awed by tho awful dignity of Col. Benton, and afraid to act; but they found a Catholic priest, who atood in no auch fear, and the knot waa tied. Jus. before the decisive ttep waa taVen, and her laat atep lin gered upon the paternal thrwahbold, theoweet daughter'a heart yearned for the mother, who aha wu thua ab ruptly leaving, perhapa forever, and the hung her head and sol bed; the carriage-door stood open, the hortet pronced, another moment and all might have been loot. "Go it Jessie" was tho word fiom the bridegroom, the bound waa made from Benton to Fremont, (a great leap at that time.) the homes tore the pavement in their flight; the night wore oo; "They'll have toot atoods who fellow," thought the young draughtsman, as bio arm encircled Jeasie, and he look ed at the moon under whioh to many things have transpired. Col. Benton waked in the morning, descended to the breakfast table, but found no Jes sie. Her room waa explored, but no Jessie waa found, and her bed had not eren been occupied. There wat the great Col. in a great rage sirl He fiothed and foamed, and roared and ranted, perhapa be swore. He prom ised he'd give ibe rascal a rowhidiog he'd give him aix years' in the Pen itentiary he'd give him "You hnd better gm him Jettio." waa the quiet suggestionof .the mother perhaps the was above h tlf right. One of the grossest accusations against Col. Fremont is the running away with Tom Benton's daughter; yet after all, there is much to be aaid in extenuation. He admired the fam ily, and felt that he must have a mem ber of it. To run away with the old lady would have created great scan dal; and to run away with the Colonel himself wao out of the question he took tbe only one of the family be could get. Old Cardinal Richelieu said to Louis XIII.. when that monarch fell in love with Julia Do Mortimer, niece of ihe Cardinal, "if you love somebody. Sire, love me" Benton was still more un reasonablehe shut hit doors againtt Fremont, and forbade him to love any of the family. What eould he do then but what he did? Every pro-tlavery newspaper from "54 40 or fight," down to 32 20, pa rades before its readers the damning fact, that Fremont had the audacity to runaway with Col. Benton's daugh ter in order to be married to her That he told her to "Go it Jessie," at the very moment of her departure This fact is mentioned with an air of decisiveness, as if be had run away with Col- Benton's pocket-book, or favorite race-horte.

He will not receive a vote more nor less because of the fact which io of such unchallenged notoriety lhat denial it useless. There is now a vast political and moral quettion before the people ; ond that question is freedom or slavery. Col. Fremont has planted himself sauarelv and firmlv upon the platform of freedom. Mr. Buchanan , the op posing candidate, ia u fully commit ted io slavery. Recent eventa have given to the tubject an imperious urgency, which admits of no delay, and will take no procrastination. Now ia tho time lo settle upon the respective principleo of the contending parties, without mixing up the campaign with personal con siderations.

Of Mr. Cumminga I shall tpeak hereafter: Topbba, Kantet, June 14, '66. Mr. Jarno Redputh, Lawrence, Kuneae: Dcar Sib: Id reply to your favor of the 10th intt., I will give you a eondensed statement of facts in the case you refer to. On my returning to the Territory, from Ohio, ia May last, I wu inter cepted at Lexington, Mo. A small party of the citiuns of that place came on board the boot, who made them selvos rather officious by questioning travelers m to their destination most of them Southern men, bound for Kansas. A gentleman (?) stepped up lo me and held out bis hand re marking at the aame time, 'I certain ly know you." I replied 'twas poss ible. He asked me to accompany them into town. I decline, d staling that the boat would soon put out, and that I would not have time. He then returned to the others who came on bo .rd with him and held a short con sultation, when he again turned lo me and aaid, "Accompany us into town. "I replied that I would not'" He then said, "By God, you shall go! Come, oo boys, lay hold I" And, suiting the action to the word, they laid hold of me, and forcibly dragged me off the boat. Resistance would have been useless. They took me to a hotel, where I waa introduced to several distinguished (?) individ uals, after which we got supper. About 9 or 10 P. M tho aame even ing. I was invited totak.i a walk. Of course I wu obliged to go. After walking about two ra les we met anoth er party one of whom carried a pail Very little wuoaid to me; the talkin ! wu all among themselves aside. was asked if I was returning lo the Territory? What business I intended following when there? I bad forgotten to state that the leader of thit party of hell houndt had seen me when I wu a prisoner in the Missouri camp, at Lecompton, K. T., in December, 1866. At that time I had in possession two hundred copies of the "Constitution of the State of Kansas," which, with other papers, were stolen and destroyed. To the inquiry as to my future bus iness in ihe Territory, my reply was lhat I would probably be connected with a paper. They talked apart for some time. Finally, the leader told me: "We owe you a small debt, and it might as well be paid now aa any other time." "He takes it cool." said one of them; aaoiher "It's a damned shame, boys letbim loose." "No! no!" aaid half a doien voice "Let us fix him and give him a starter toward abolitionism. "God." cried the crowd. "Well, sir," addressing me, "you will please divest yourself of your clothing." "I would rather be excused." "No partying now, sir, take bold boys, lay hia garments one side, and let everything be done in an orderly manner." My clothing was removed from off my body; and instead I was covered with sticky substance, generally called "tar;'1 feathers were poured over it. I also received several severe strokes from persons in the gang, and was otherwise brutally treated. My clothes were then iven to one, and I wat told to depart. I started toward St. Louis; walked about fifteen miles between that and morning, pulling up at a wood yard soon as the boat came along, and I took deck passage foi St. Louis, where I tarried a few daya. and again took passage for Kansas City. I arrived aafe. Several inter esting scenes took place on toy second trip, but I will not give them here. Yours for Freedom in Kansas, J. F. CUMMINGS. The Voice of 8pleen.

A party ditgraood by the acts of its leaders leaders, whom that party could not keep from mis chief and whose misdeeds it dare not refuse to endorse; a party thua cow ardly before its own shadow, thus hu miliated and disgraced with the blood of civil war upon its hands with money plundered from our State j and County treasuriea in Its very pock ets with iniquities and corruption enough to sink two Whig parties this party has the impudence to ask us to trut it for four years more.

Arouse ye people! Be free! Respectfully yours, CHARLES REEMELIN. How and when Mr. Buchanan became a Democrat, no one seems able to say. The biography recently circulated by his friends sheds no light on this point. That he wat a prominent Federalist, no one pretends to deny. His name figures repeatedly in Niet't Hegtter marked aa a Feder alist in the list of Members of Con 8 fess; also among the signers of a irculrar issued by the leading Feder alists to rally to the support of Andrew Gregg for Governor of Pennsylvania against John Andrews Sbulixe. In 1826. after he had been several years a Jackson man. be ran and was elected as the Federal candidate for Congress over a Democratic candidate, who was alto a Jackson man; and in 1828, when he ran aa a Jackson man simply, and waa for tbe lut time chosen to the House, he ia reported to have correc ted a friend who wished to introduce him to a Jackaon meeting in Cheater County aa a Democrat "No, no: I am a Jackson "man, but, thank God! aof a Democrat." We consider a federalist as good as a Democrat, Erovided he behaves as well: but, as lr. Buchanan it now running for President as a Democrat, will some of hit friendt be good enough to aay when he became euch? St Paul met with a change equally astounding about the aame time of life; but he tells a very and credible story aa to lhe meana by which the change waa effected. Who will tell us by what kind of illumination Mr. Buchanan's ee were unsealed to the beauliea and Jjrioua of Democracy? V. Y. 7tt ne. Phonounciku Bibls Names.

They were also required to abow their pa pert aod pocket bookt. Men are die appearing very myeU-rioualy from the fpu State ranks.

Must we sub mil to all these outraget without re dress? Must our mouths be shut, our presses be destroyed, our God -given rights trampled upon, our persons outraged, and not murmur? We mutt submit, 1 suppose, like the cring ing aetfa of Russia, and exclaim. "All right." Never. The pent-up firea of liberty burnt too strongly in the hearts of the people of Kansas. The spirit that wnimated the hires of '76 still ani mates their noble tons. At they threw off tbe yoke of Britain, so will ihe f eemen of Kaosas throw off the galling yoke of oppression that bears them down. Must tbe freemen of Kantu spill their blood for the cause of freedom and yet be left to perish? Must they, as well as the poor African, groan under the burden of Slavery, and bow beneath the oppressor's rod on soil long since dedicated to free dom? II. mn.t itrAmin.iil .ili.ana nr.. u.a.
