The "Intelligen cer" drops lis neutrality this morning and supports Fillmore and Donelson, on the basis of the action of the whig convention. ' New York, Sept. 23. To the inspectors nf elections, Telegraph operators, newspapers and reporters throughout the Union l'he public will look for the, result of the Presi dential election on the fifth of November; and to enable the newspapers of the Union to declare the result on the following morn lug, it will be necessary for the inspectors of election throughout the United States to aid the telegraph operators and editors in every town, village and city, and fur the editorsnnd reporters to aid each other This cun be done by confining their labors on the night of the election to the President's vole alone. Let .the inspectors everywhere count the electoral vote first, and let the telegraph transmit that .vote only, on the night of the election. This will euuble the press to announce the result .on the morning after the election, even if the .contest bo a close one. We hope this plan will be adopted, as norther will succeed. It . will inip.iiy ine moor ana niuKo u easier, uve time, and satisfy the people. " Country and city editors will promote the object in view by publishing in their editorial columns , this notice once or twice a week until the 4lh .of November. . Illeqal Votiko is Kentucky. The Bow. ling Green Gazette of the 11th says: ', At the Auyust election there were n large number of illegal democratic votes polled. We learn that six true bills were found in Simpson county; one against a native and five ngainst Irishmen, for perjury at the polls. The facts, as nearly as we can arrive at them, are as follows: several Irishmen, who ' were employed as laborers upon the railroad, ' bad, about two weeks previous to the elec tion, moved from the to-vn (Franklin) Pis trict to "Slmll's precinct." On the morning of the election, they came to the Franklin ' polls, but wore refused on the ground that 'they hud recently removed from the Dis trict. Clark and others then immediately took them in buggies to Shult's precinct, nnd they ' were permitted to vote, upon testifying that . they had been in the precinct sixty days. . Such is thv use mode of the few foreigners blrendy in our midst, by unscrupulous and ' corrupt demagogues. 3gr We see it generally sUitod that the State election in California was held on the . 3d September. This is a mistake. By the law of California, tho State election every ' fotirth year viz: the year of the Presidential ' election is deferred until the Presidential .-election takes place, and both are held on the same day. ' Consequently the State (lection in California this year will nut occur until tho 4th of November. ' Cotton Crop of 1855-'56. Tho Shipping &, Commercial List, and New York Price i Current, makes the total Cotton crop of 1855 -'56, 3,827,845 bales. This shows nn Increase ovor crop of 1 854-55 680,506 h u 853-64 697,818 m m 1852-53 264,963 In the statement of the total crop raised in . the United States the past season, the Ship ping and Commercial 1.1st makes it 3,335,000 bales, niter deducting 250,000 bales of the .crop of the previous year, detained in the in. , terior by low rivers, nnd other causes, prior to Sept. 1, 1855. All of this cotton, it is pre- aumed, camu forward the past season. Walkino on Water. The Parisians have been amused of late, by a man who walks on the water. He is supported by small air-light boxes strapped to his feet, and has pole in his hands, with a bladder at each end, with which he touches the water and restores his equilibrium when about to tip over. He wulked with the greatest apparent ease up and down the Seine.

"Reflect, my brethren," exhorted chaplain, "that whosoever falls this day in battle sups to-night in Paradise" The fight begun, the ranks wavered, the chaplain took to his heels, w hen soldier stopping bio), re pronehfully referred him to the promised sup. per in Paradise. "True, my son, true," said the chaplain, "but I never eat supper." STOP THAT MISREPRESENTATION. A correspondent of the Unioti and Ameri can, writing from Christiann, Rutherford co.. on Sunday last, gives what purports to be an account of the debate at Murfreesboro', the day previous between Messrs. Maynard and Polk. The writer says, among other things "Major Polk asserted, and defied his com' petitor to deny the assertions, that Mie Fill more party had not ticket tor the local ofii eesin a single northern Stale, and that the Democratic was the only party w Inch flared to oppose the Republican lorees. I Ins statu ment Mr. Maynard chose not to deny." If Major Polk made any such assertion as is here ascribed to him, it is good evidence of the want of information with which even Democrats have charged him. Elections are to come off litis fall in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New -York, Massachusetts Wisconsin, New Jersey and Michigan. In Pennsylvania the Americans are supporting a State ticket put in nomination previous to the nomination of Fremont; and wherever there is any prospect of success they have candi dates of their own for Congress and the Le gislature. In Ohio, they have a Slate ticket, candidates for Congress and the legislature. In Indiana, they support for Governor and other State officers, the ticket of the People's Convention, nominated last May; but have separate and distinct tickets fur members of Congress and the Legislature. In Illinois, they have a ticket for Governor, for Congress men and fur members of the Legislature. In New York, they have a full State ticket, and candidates for Congress and the Legislature. In Massachusetts, they have their separate ticket for Governor and other State offices. In Wisconsin, they have their "local" tickets, and are working zealously in support of them. In New Jersey, their separate candi date for Governor is ut the head of all the American papers. We get no papers from Michigan, and can't say what is going on there. Americans and Democrats seem to consider the home of the great squatter sov. ereign, Cass, given over to Fremont beyond redemption. Patriot. if Gen. Jackson, in writing to Genera! Armstrong, thus boldlv expressed himself re specting the ever-chiingingsqiiatter sovereign ty candidate, Buclinnnn: "I can't help it, (I'olk's determination to appoint Buchanan his Secretary of State.) I felt it my duty to warn him against Buchan an, whether it was agreeable or not. Mr. Polk will find Mr. Buchanan an unreliable man. I know him well, nnd Mr. Polk will yet ad mit the correctness of iny position." A ndrew Jackson. The old General, without doubt, found him nn unreliable man, nnd not only so expressed himself to Gen. Armstrong, but also to Maj. Lewis, saying in substance: "He lucked moral enuaage, did not do me justice in the biiigain and corruption affair, wanted me to fight Ad ams and Clay with their own weapons, but looking on this as corruption, I repelled it with that honest indignation which I thought it deserved." A Crisis. The democratic presses and or ators" are hoarse with the cry that the conn try is in n crisis. Well suppose it is. Who brought this crisis on! Who are responsible for it! Neither Whigs nor Know Nothings have been in power, and, of course, they are innocent. Who, but the democracy them selves, then, are guilty! They have had ev ery thing their way. If there be a crisis, as there certainly is, they and they alone are to blame for It. But we admonish our friends to beware of this tricky cry. It is resorted to by the Lo. co's to procure votes for Buchanan. To re instate them in power again the very men who have brought all our present evils upon us is the remedy they propose for the crisis themselves have produced. Is not this rem edy beautifully queer! Oh, yes; there is a great crisis, and everv body must sustain Bu clinnnn, or the country is gone! Why don't these self proclaimed patriots tell the truth, and let the people know that there is a crisis in the Democratic party, and that all this cry about a crisis is only for party purposes, nr.d not for the good of tho country! Why don't these hypocritical wretches do this! Halifax, Sept. 23. The steamship Cana da, Capt. Lone has arrived with Liverpool dales In the 18th twptemuer. Flour.

Mr. Sellwood, of the Episcopal Church, mission ary to Oregon, was in the massacre, and re ported among the dead. In a letter just re. ceived from him, he says that he received four wounds, and is disfigured for It le. His narrow escape from death is thus described; After I had recovered, and previous to leaving tho Hospital, one of my medical at tendant said to me: "I looked upon your escaie as a miracle: the ball passed so near the heart, that it must have passed at the in stant ot its contraction, for hud it passed at it expansion, yell must have been killed. Just the one-tenth of a second made all the difference in your case between life and death. Into Link. The Baltimore Patriot an old Whig paper following the action of the Whig Couvention, has run up the Fill more Aug. x ADDRESS OF COL. THOS H.CLAY We publish from the Ixiugton Observer nn address from the eldest aon of old Harry of the West, to his countrymen. In laying it before the public the Observer says : "It speaks for itself, and will be read with pleasure by every friend of Millard Fillmore. Owins; to the fact that the author of this communication was t lie eldest of Henry Clay's sons, he enjoyed his confidence in a very grent degree, and his opinions upon certain ques tions con ected with the history of the great statesman a-e worthy of particular attention." To My Countrymen. Urged by friends from different quarters, ho helieve that an address, put forth by me, ns the eldest son of the founder of the Whig party in the United Slates, would be productive or good, nnd mii'lit tend to induce many to give that calm reflection to the present piditcnl condition of our beloved country, which it so imperatively demands; notwithstanding the objections which present themselves lo me and which are ninny nnd urnve, 1 h tve determined from a sense of dtttv, to comply with their wishes; to appeal to the patriotism of my fellow countrymen nnd, if my warning voice tuny be heard in tins momentous cnsia, to urge upon them the sell ction of such candidates for the Presidency und Vice Presidency of the United States, ran alone give perm no nce to our institutions, and bring pence to our distracted country. Content to remain in the situation in which Providence has placed me, I have never aspir ed to nnv political office. I have, however, from my position, an acquaintance with the public men of the Unitrd States nnd their political histories, which few, otherwise situ tiled, could have obtained. We tire called upon to select between James lliiehiinnii, Millard Fillmore, nnd Col. John C. Fremont, for the next Presidency. As for the last named of these gentlemen, I have been unable yet to learn upon what considerations his friends base his claims. It is but the mudneas of party spirit and section alism which could attempt the elevation of such a man to the high office to which he aspires. My father thought Buchanan weak and corrupt; wanting, ns Gen. Jackson has it, in moral firmness. I have seen no reason to vary my opinion from his. Mixed up ns he is, in the old "Bargain nnd Corruption plot his card to the Telegraph newspaper in July, 1827, in w hich lie says, (I atlemptnot to give the words, but the substance,) "Mr. Adams has been elected to the Presidency by Mr. 'lay's agency; Mr. Clay h. s been appointed Secretary of State by Mr. Adams; the people will druw tlieir own inferences;" his attempts to prove in public speeches in 1844, in Penn sylvania, that Mr. Polk was a better Tariff man than Mr. Clay, furnish such a damning record of weakness and corruption, that I cannut conceive, how even any Democrat of the old line, I mean Jackson Democrat, could give him his support Who could believe. then, that tiny old line W lug, any triend of my tut her, would oe found enlisted in his cause ! Whether as author or signer of tho Ostend Manifesto, he has shown nn utter want of those statesmanlike qualities which are re quisite in a President of the United States. The time has come, when every lover ot his country should sneak out boldly and fear lessly. 1 shall not shrink from ine duly. Too much is at stake, to tolerate silence in tiny one, who is informed as to the political histories ot either Air. rillmore or Air. liuclu nntin. Col. rremont has none. Turn we now to Millard Fillmore. Hype. Hon to a Satyr. By the net of Providence, called to the Presidency of the United Stales, we see him national and conservative in nil respects; upholding the Constitution, curry ing out its compromises; attending to the interests of every section; respected both nt home and abroad. On the completion of his term, hailed by honest Whigs and honest Democrats everywhere, with "well done thou good nnd faithful servant," etc. Can nn American public halt in its opinion between such men! Is Slavery Agitation never to be put to rest? Is Squatter Sover eignty and Fillibusterism to be tolerated by free and enlightened Americans. Esau like, are we ready to sell our birth rights for a mess of pottage! forbid it Almighty bod! Aw'ay with the wretched plea ol availabili ty. Let us do what is right and look to God with honest consciences lor the result. To the old line Whig of the Aslihtnd District, I take leave to say, I honor them for their course. In their own approving con sciences, they already feel their reward. They wnnt no offices, thev have acted for the good of their country, nnd they have come nobly up to the, work. No cry of availability could swerve then. In pledging their support of Mr. Fillmore they do only "hat their old leader would do, with all his might, could he now once more address his country. I write warmly, for I feel deeply the im portance of the crisis through which we are to pass. 1 believe the spirits of the just made perfect, if they are ever permitted to look down upon the affairs of litis earth, are now betiding their approving fiances upon the efforts of the ti lends of Fillmore nnd Donel son, to elevate to the high offices of President and Vice President those distinguished nnd trust-worthy citizens. Look tit Kansas; what Tins caused the state of things now being enacted there! Is it not the weak and imbecile administration of Franklin Pierce! Has not James Buchanan adopted the acts of his administration as part of his platform ! And can our abused conn try submit lo such another administration for four years longer! Away with such miserable abortions. In Millard Fillmore we have a statesman calm, and wise, and fearless, who can still the ele. meats of discord and advance the best inter, ests of our country. Brothers of the American party, stand to your arms and be of good cheer! National and conservative men throughout the land, arc gathering to our standard. A few weeks, I trust, will produce such results as shall forever put to rest, sectionalism, Filibuster ism, Squatter Sovereignty, nnd every thing that shall tend to mar the integrity, harmony and peace of this glorious confederacy. Respectfully vour ob't. serv'l, ' "TIIOS. II. CLAY, Grand President of the t 'ouncil of Ky. . Mansfield, Sept. 8th, 1856. Voluntah Y Starvation. We notice in a Charleston paper, that one T. J.

Another Accession to Fillmore. The New Orleans Picatone has ut lost thrown off Its neutrality mid come out for Mr. Fillmore. In an editorial it cordially endorses the nom inees of the Baltimore Convention of Old Line Whigs. HEAR A VOICE FROM IjOUISIANA, Men of the South Union men of 1851 once more yon will have to rise in your might and put down the disunion spirit that is now sprouting np green and thriving from the buried seeds of 1851. Hear the New Orleans Creole: A gentleman who holds a promineat post tion in Ijnuisinna, has just returned from a tnur of travel nt the North, decided to sun. port Mr. Buchanan, because his election will hasten the dissolution of the Union. There are strong reasons to believe that no incon siderable portion of th warm friends ol Mr Buchanan are at heart in favor of a divided Republic. That Democracy which once stood, like the frowning rock, against all the assaults upon the Constitution, is to-day broken and scat. tered; new doctrines have swept away nil its nnetent landmarks; new leaders old red type formalists, nnd young radical revolu tionists, struggle for supremacy. Growing corrupt with the eniovment ot power, its leaders of every hue disregard pledged faith, It gain is likely to lollow treachery, l orn in; to consider the masses us s mere instru ment for individual aggrandizement n lad der, upon which to climb into power, they cease to have regard for the transmission of our institutions unimpaired to posterity, or to love the Union, except I hey may continue to have supremacy in the Union. Ilonce the frequent assertions now made by Southern Democratic journals, "that Fremont is pre- leralile, traitor ns he is to the land of his birth, to Fillmore!" If they cannot rule, they desire that issue to be presented which shall weaken the bonds now connecting the North nnd the South. At this moment the scenes enacted nn the plains of Kansas are the result of the supi neness, as well ns the desire, of the Demo crncy to estrange the different sections of the Union. Kansas is not reduced to peace, be cause the continuance of strife on its plains opens the way lor the Democracy South to rise into power in l Southern Republic while the Disunioliists North may wield the supreme authority in a Northern ennfeder. acy. Disiinionisin North nnd South now works most astutely for the same object. The Southern Dcnics-rot will vote for Buch anan that the issue between the North and South may speedily come. The Abolition ists of the North sustain Fremont, to make the issue direct between the free and the slave States." It is worthy of remark that the leaders in the secession plot which, a few years since, agitated the slave States, are now leading men in favor of Mr. lluch.ina.n. Gen Quit man, of Mississippi, then openly avowed ns n reason for raising the banner of secession, grievances which he now supports in sus taining the cause ;f Buchanan. Pierre Soule, ol Louisiana, stands in tho same po sition with the distinguished M. C. from Mississippi. Throughout the cnlire South ern States, the same 'men who were then ready, nt the point of the bayonet if neces sary, to throw off the control of the general government, are now found the supporters of James Buchanan side by side with tho Van Bmena, the -Wrights unci an army or those, to avoid whom, they then struggled to destroy the Union of these States. Have these men purged themselves of their old hostility! Have they exhibited penitence for their former heresy, or repudiated nil fu ture design upon the integrity of the Repub lic? Or are they now designing to accom plish, indirectly, what they then failed to se cure by open action! Is nut Buchanan supported ut the South with the ultimate design of consolidation merely geographical parties! and are not many persons coming to his aid, because his election will intensify the present strug gle between the North and the South! Hon. Edward Stanlkt, of North Ca rolina. Among the efforts made by the Democratic press to misrepresent tho posi tion of distinguished Whigs is one assign ing to Hon. Edward Stanley, of North Ca rolina, a preference for the Cincinnati nom inees. Mr. Stanley is among the noblest ofthe Whigs or the "Old Slate," nnd the Wilmington (N. C.) Heiald is "authorized to say that: "Mr. Stanley now is ns diametrically op posed to the principles of tho Democratic party, nnd recollects too vividly Buchanan's connection with the infamous charge of bar gain and corruption made against Mr. Clay to support him in opposition to Millard Fill more, who is his choice of the three candi dates now before the people. It is due to Mr. S. to say that he supports Mr. Fillmore because he believes h t ill to be a patriot, and the man to quell the present agitated con dition, of the country, and not from any sympathy with the principles of the Amer ican party, to w hich he has never given his support. -if Reader, whenever a democrat ap proaches you and attempts to persuade yon to vote for the "Cincinnati Platform" on the ground that "Fillmore stands no chance," ask him if he has heard the news from Iowa. If that don't stop him, then ask him If he has licird from Maine. In nine cases out often this will make him as mum as his candidate. We tried n democrat this way the other day, and immediately his under lip dropped to an angle of about 45 degrees below the knees, and lie almost went into convulsions. "Fill more stands no chance" eh! Have you beard the news from MAINE! fr The New York Commercial, one of the most reliable papers in the Union, ex presses the opinion that it "is n mural cer tainty that the friends of Mr. Fillmore will carry the electoral vote of that State in No- vember." The Albany Statesman is equally confident. The Fillmore prospect in New York is constantly brightening. Editorial Fracas. Judge Alexander Walker, editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer, a Democratic paper, on Monday last caned Mr. Reed, editor of the Commercial, a Republican paper of that city.

THE PEOPLE vs. THE POLITICIANS, A correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot, writing from Chnmbefsburg, Pennsylvania, makes the following statement : "It is extremely difficult at present to form any just idea of how political affairs stand in the State, To see nnd here politicians talk, (I mean Democrats,) one would suppose that there could not be even a show or opposition to Mr. Buchanan. They boast of carrying the btaie by thirty, forty, and lifly thousand majority. Stopping at a country hotel en route this morning, several loud talking De mocrats were standing near me; 1 asked them how they thought the Stale was coini-. nnd if Mr. Fillmore had any friends or supporters in that region ! 'Not one,' Wits the reply. 'We don't know of a single vote he will get in tho ontirjk tii.!tiitw "An honest-lookirifr, quiet, unobtrusive, but intelligent laboring man, who had been giving audience in my interrogatories and the replies, after remaining a silent listener fur some minutes, took courage and spoke out after nits tasnion : "Gentlemen, you are mistaken. Here is one Fillmore man who will vote for him, if it be the last net of my life. . Nor is this all. I have seven good brothers and a father, each of whom, though you may not know it, ore lor t Mlinnre and nobody else. Two ol them were Democrats. Ten uf my cousins also tell ine they have made up their minds to do the same thing, and if you will come with me I will show you plenly of just such. Millard Fillmore is (food enough for me. He made the best President we have had since the days of Wasliingtuii." '1 took some pains to converse with the honest rustic, and found him a man of excel lent common sense. His expressive remark was 'Why Bir, all us p' ople are going for Fillmore, and the politicians don't know it.' "Herein, in my judgement, Tics Fillmore's great strength. It sleeps silently but pow. or Cully in the throbbing hearts of tho great masses, and, like latent fire, ere long will burst forth, when ignited by the quickening eloquence of sober judgement." Democratic Extravagance. It is no wonder to us thnt we find the better portion of the Democracy fa'ling away from the ranks, nnd becoming uble advocates of con servatism. There are arguments why they should do so far more urgent than mere ap peals in behalf of economy and promises of reform intended to be broken as soon as cir cumstances will admit of. The people have. in this manner, been abused befom; they have seen their rights trampled upon nnd their property squandered. More than 875,000,000 squandered by tho Pierce-Buchanan Demo, cracy in the legislation of one year, is suffi cient to awaken the attention of thu people, nnd arouse a determination to remedy tho evil wherever it may exist. The leaders are aware of this fact, nnd feel the peculiarity of their situation in not being able to produce a single bcnrfn-iiil n-oult its mi c fleet. This Is not confined to sny one portion of the public departments, but is to be round wherever Democratic rule or misrule has been able to extend its confidence. In the pay of its myrmidons now in office; in preparation for the coming Presidential election; in bolstering up its ngents in all sections of the country in all States, counties nnd townships the influ ence of this public extravagance is being made manifest, and opposing itself to the exertions of those who, Iroin being the sufferers, are now most clamorous for reform. It will come, too. The people must hnve reform. The poor man's dollar nnd tho rich man's hundreds must in the future be ac counted for, nnd ut least be made to show that it adequate value is returned. The cry of reform nnd economy has become a hack neyed term, nnd the people will trust it no longer. They mut:t and will have reform, and when the ides of November shall come they will learn the verdict of a defrauded people in regard to unwise legislation and unscrupu lous vandalism. The Greatest Humbug of the Dat. An Alabama contemporary well remarks that the greatest humbug of the day is tho false idea that the democrats nre harping on, that "Fillmore stands no chance." Talk to them about the rottenness of old Buck, nnd they answer "Fillmore is weak." Show them old Buck's abolition sentiments, and with wry fn. ces they answer,"Fillmore is out of the ques tion," Point them to the odious features of Squatter Sovereignty nnd Alien suffrage in tlieir platform.nnd they cry out, "oh, Fillmore is not in the race." Miserable und empty trick! This is tho sum and substance of all their reasoning and all their argument. This is the foundation of all their delusive hopes; bu it is one of sand, and now, when the spi rit of patriotic inquiry is abroad in the land, the people begin to see the miserable subter fuge, and ilia! for the democracy, are flocking with heart and soul to the advancing stand ard of Millard Fillmore. Push on the ball! Buchanan Is the man who bus "no chnnee'V- o not even iv ghost of n chance. Thopeo- pie see It, and, lo beat Fremont, they are ral lying for Fillmore and the Constitution.' All hands, we say, for the patriot Fillmore, and sectionalism, North and South, is dead for ever. Emigrant Statistics. There arrived at New York last week 3,315 emigrants; total for the year 95,365; to the same period last year the number was 99,627. There were in Ward's lcland und In the Murine Hospital, Inst week, 1,407 persons. At this time lust year the number was 1,952. tjr A wag who has dune something to. wards increasing the federal 'census, denies that Buchanun, who is tin old Bachelor, has has any right to expect the support of the 'people." He gives the reason as follows: "To say the people are lor 'Buck, la sadlv to mistake 'em- Why should the people go for one Who does not try lo make 'em." l-f They are showing Lot's wife In one of the Eastern cities. Shu is done up in salt, and said to be the genuine article. LET U3 LOOK TO OURSELVES. In the year 1790, and for several year thereafter, says the Raleigh Register, the South had forty-seven members of the House of Representatives, while the North had only thirty-four. Since that time the North has, by means of foreign accessions, been steadily in creasing its representation, and left the South in a minority of more than half a hundred; and this huge majority will increase continu ally, and we will become weaker and weaker, yenr after year, unless we do something for our safety. Let the fifteen States that can be made of Nebraska, and the twelve of Kansas, nnd the number that can be made of Utah, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, &c., apply for admission Into the Union as States, which they will soon do, unless a stop is put lo this immense importation of foreign ers nnd see what beautiful minority we will be in. Then ought not the South to do its best to remedy this great and growing evil! Cer tainly! r.nd the only way is to vote for Mil lard Fillmore, Who will carry out the Ameri can principles, and in some degree at least put a stop to immigration. Mr. liuchan.m will not do so, but on the contrary, will give it n now impetus. He will send for aliens to fill our offices; he dues not hold to the doctrine that America!. should nlono govern them selves, but thinks it is proper to have help from abroad. He will, if be is elected, im port a host uf officers w ho will not apply in j vain, nnd our own countrymen will be depri' ved of what is justly due them. Ponder these things, and vote in Novell) ber for Millard Fillmore. The Restoration or the Missouri Com. promise. The Commercial Advertiser, print ed in Buffalo where Mr. Fillmore resides, makes the following remarks in regnrd to the restoration of the Missouri Co in promise; a proposition which no sane man can believe will ever be carried: "We may consider it demonstrated, there. fore, that an act for restoring the Missouri Compromise will never come before the President for his consideration. As connect ed with the presidential election, the ques tion is perfectly idle an abstraction unworthy the consideration of a practical statesman. It is unwise to discuss it us an element in the the presidential canvass; t( would be equally unwise ever to agitate it again in Congress. The Missouri Compromise is tike water spilled upon the sand, IT can never be gathered UF. Its repeal was n great blun der, but it is too late to correct it, . The at- tttniit to restore it at the late session of Con gress is defensible, on the ground that it was well to oner to the Senate an opportunity to reconsider its action. But the Compro mise is dead, and it would be as rational lo rrfieri the reanimalion of any other corpse as of this. Nothing remains but to pronounce its eulogy and bury it out of sight. Gives it Uf. A letter from Washington to a gentleman in Lexington, Kentucky dated 16th ult. says: "Robert J. Walker yestorday said that he considered Buchanan as already defeated. It was his opinion that Fremont will be elect ed, and in ibis opinion Gen. Morehead, of Piitsburg, Presidential elector in 1848 (De mocratic) concurred. But I trust thnt New York will prevent this, nnd I have hopes even of Ohio, now for Mr. Fillmore. Gen More head's opinion is, though a Buchanun man, that Pennsylvania will go for Fremont. Certain it is, Mr. Buchanan has nn strength, nnd I do not believe will carry a single State north of Masons and Dixon's line. So you see the Buchanan men nre giving uo in despair. Thu causa of Fillmore will advance with rapid strides from this until November, and his election, if the South but provo true to him, is strongly probable." ' Walker nnd Morehead are too fainthearted. The great Empire State ' stands liko the cherubim before the gate of Paradise with n aininrr sword, to prevent the entrance of the Black Republican nominee. With her vote safe for Fillmore the country cannot be cursed by the election of Fremontr There s comfort in that thought. FJTThe editor of the Cleveland Plain. dealer is one of tlie fiercest of nil the sup porters of Mr. Buchanan, but undoubtedly he thinks of Mr. Buchanan just ns he did when he published the following paragraph before the meeting of the Cincinnnti conven tion. Yes, he thinks exactly as he did then, and hundreds of other Sag-Nicht editors think nt heart with him. And in thnt at least they hnve the honor of agreeing with us: The small and malignant clique who wear th name of James Buchanan nn their colors nre endeavoring to sell the Democra cy of Pennslvania into the hand of the South Carolina traitors.

He could not re ceive the votes of one third of the people for any office. And yet, by the force of manage' ment of the basest kind of political machine ry, he has been able for years past to crush the Democratic pnrty of Pennsylvania, to hniirj about its neck like a millstone, to kill every progressional thought in its bosom. He ond his tools virtually gave the State to Taylor in 1848, and if Bigler is defeated food nnd noble man vou may charge it to James Buchnnnn, who, like the old man in the history of Sinbiid the sailor, now hangs on Bigler's neck. NfTho editor of tho Brooklyn Evening Stnr, after taking a tour through New York State, gives tlie following ns his Impression ns to what Mr. Fillmore's chance in the Em- pire State will be: "On the whole, our brief tour has impress ed u with a certainty of our success in this Slate. With 182,000 registered votes with our Fillmore nnd Donelson dubs with the valuable nssistnr.ee of the old line Whigs with accesssion of old line Demo, crnts with the Protestant Associations with Slate officers, &c., if we ennnot bent a faction in the form of mock Republicanism and shnin Democracy, then indeed is New York lost lo aii sense of patriotism, and the proud position which she occupies in the gnlaxv of stars. Good cheer, friends New York is all right." AUTUMN.

All nature eem to be imbued with the calm and tranquil apirit of philoso phic resignation to the decree or Tate, and a quiet submission to the destiny or unfavora ble and speedy dissolution. Nature, hushed into dignified and peaceful repose, seem a if it were preparing itself to chnunt the re qtiiem of its own death, and, like the victim that savage nations immolate to propitiate their gods, is gaily apparelled for the sacrifice. The earth still covered with its tnaotle of la den gieen.nppears as if it clung with jealous care to its juvenile vestments while the tree nnd the vine hnve donned the livery of au tumn and are decked In the georgoous, glit tering, many hued mosaic Hint precede nnd proclaims nature's approach to the "acre and yellow leaf that bodes decay and dissolution. Antumn is a gorgeous luxurious season. Go where you will whether on land oi water, on hill or dale, on the plain or In the forest you breathe the snme life inspiring air that only autumn' brings." Responsive to tho healthful breeze, the life blood course quick ly through the swelling veins, and the excited nerves tingle with the keen sensation ' of in tense delight. To shoot tho (lying bird to chase the stag to fish in some clear swift, flowing stream, are the elite sports or thi most elite season. Ye sickly moneyenamor ed crew, who sit from early morn to the dowy eve, pouring over the page of your ledgers, or counting gain that only add more metal to the hoard you have, quit for a time your mercenary musing and hie ye to the field or forest breathe the pure air bid your soul to revel til the glorious fensts that bounteous nature in lavish profusion has spread before you; and recognizing tlie majesty and power of God, in the fruition of the blessings he lias bestowed, ottuns your feeling in unison to the mild splendor of tlie surrounding scenes, and elevating yuur thoughts above nnd beyond this world, rest them on Heaven nnd its high hopes. -,( TIIEYCOME! THEY COME! The Memphis Eugleand Enquirer is pleat ed to learn that the Hun. B. N. KInyon, leading und influential old line Demoorat of Tishomingo county, Mississippi, has come out for Fillmore, and ngainst Buchnnnn, on ac count of tho hitter's odious doctrine of Squat ter Sovereignty. Judgo Kinyon never belong ed to the American Order or Party, He wo a Union Democrat in 1851, nnd never bent the knee to the foul Baal of Secession. The Eagle's informant, who is ono of the most In telligent nnd respectable gentlemen in North Alississippi, also gives it ns his firm conviction that Tishomingo would, if the election were to come off to morrow, show a gain of 300 for Fillmore over Fontaine's vote of Inst year. What the gain will be t'n November, no on can compute. Tho men or Tishomingo are rapidly becoming alive to the fact that the welfare of the Union and the South depend upon the election of Fillmore.

We do this after mature and deliberate reflection, nnd at tho inuie time, wo confess, not without some degree of reluctance. For we have desired, h , con sistent with duty, from tin almost imperative regard to our pecuniary interests, to remain neutral during the present campaign. But contemplating tho fearful agitation into which our country has been plunged, and viewini; with alarm the dangers with which our institutions are surrounded, we fuel that tho present is no time fur an American' cit izen to be neutral, We believe that now, more than everbefore, our country demands the active, unceasing and effectual energy or every true und loyal subject, whether ofthe humblest or tho loftiest talent of the small est or most commanding influence." . et -f?"The question has been nsked us, where was the Fillmore vote of Vermont and Maine!
