The liame of Fraud.
It is almost a waste of ammunition to xhoot at the
Democratic I’lat farm. It would require a swell
tnur.xlcd gun of hugest calibre to hit the whole of it
in a week’s steady firing. It ix a forest of verbiage
Ol every hue. 11 v a succession ot quadrennial accO
mutations and abrasions, it has come lorcsoinblu the
delta of some great river, where every variety of in
congruous sediment has been deposited.
We see that the uew additions pledge the Demo
cracy to carry out the Monroe doctrine rigidly—that
is, to permit no Kuropean government to colonize
this continent, 01 to interfere with the government
of any |iortion of it. “Free seas and progressive
free trade throughout the world’’ is also declared to
be a cardinal principle of the Democracy. This
would indicate a disposition lor universal war, and
is scarcely practicable short of universal conquest.—
Some of the Virginia delegates made some exception
to this new item of Democratic faith, and protested
that it was not to he regarded as a test of ortho
doxy. liut their objections were little heeded by
the tumultuous Democracy, " tbir ascendancy in
the Gulf of Mexico" was likewise asserted—which
means, we suppose, the conquest of Cuba, St. Do
mingo ami the rest of the neighboring Isles. We
presume the Virginia protest was designed to apply
to this portion of the programme as well a> th.
“progressive free trade."
As a sample of the candour anti ingenuousness
which distinguishes Democracy, we have in one of
the first resolutions a strong denunciation of In
ternal Improvements by the Federal Government,
and the very la-t act of the Convention was a reso
lution in favor of a railroad to the Pacific ocean !—
Such brazen duplicity is part and parcel ol Demo
cratic tactics ; and is not merely discreditable to the
character of the country. It has wrought vast and
inidi'lilvf It tins tnmli* the nolltics of the
country a base and degrading game ; it has substitu
ted expediency for principle, and generated the
brood of sharping demagogues who infest the land.
It has given vitality to the slavery agitation, and fo
mented it into a dangerous element of domestic dis
cord. We see its practical effects in the diverse in
terpretations put upon the Nebraska-Kansas act—
the President anil his Northern followers proclaiming
that act to lie a “measure for freedom," and the
Southern wing, a “guarantee for slavery." This
shameless double-dealing, reduced to-ayslcm, and
put forth under the sanction of one of the great pat
ties of the country, is the immediate parent of the
abolition outbreaks in the North, and the civil war
in Kansas. It lends to destroy the moral hands
which hold society together ; and its baneful effects
will continue to he felt in the future. It may achieve
the success of a spoils party ; hut it threatens ruin
to the country. An election carried by such an
agency si-1tics nothing, except the individual who
shall distribute the loaves and fishes; it leaves pub
lic questions unsettled—it exasperates sections—ii
keeps the public mind intlained Say Mr. Hochaiian
is elected on the principles o the Nebraska act—
with its contradictory interpretations. His North
ern friend* every where sustaining him as the advo
cate of squatter sovereignty and tile Iricnd of /ret
Kan sas, and thereby encouraging tlieir followers io
imitate the conduct of Reeder, in trying to subvert
the government by force: what is gained by it? —
Or lake the Internal Improvement -|uestion : the peo
ple who voted for the Pacific Railroad in the I'm
vention, and those Michiganders, who last week de
nounced lien. Pierce for his veto —they will be dis
appointed anil indignant, if Mr. litiehanan should
put hi* veto upon an Internal Improvement hill .
should he withhold it, he Would incur the wrath nl
his Southern supporters. Hut as propositions foi
improvements will only coiue from those sections fa
vorable to the policy, and as the resolution in favoi
ol the system was of later date than that again-i
* it; the only effect of this double-dealing will be t
pass bills for the benefit of the North and nolle fin
that of the South.

Northers Sentiment
We give s com mu mention from s gentleman in
llnllalo, which sum ire* u* that the representation*
we have through the abolition press, convey a false
idea of the nenUawnta of the Northern people. We
have no doubt that our correspondent i* to some ex
tent correct. We lietieve thhre are a gnat many
l^pple at the North—and those the I lost of that sec
tion who have no unkind feeling to the South, and
who care nothing alsiut slavery one way or the oth
for, and would be glad never to hear the subject men
tioned again. Itut either their love of quiet, or their
disgust at the excesses ol faction, has withdrawn
them from the arena of politics; or the fact that they
j constitute the minority, lias forced them into retire
ment. He this as it may, they appear to be quite
powerless in the exciting state of affairs, and sutler
. those w ho are seeking to subvert the Constitution, to
stand forth to the world as the cX|K>nenU of Northern
| sentiment. If they possess the power to correct this
condition of things, it is their duty to do it, a ml the
sooner they set alsiut it, the better.
H ilsm, of .Massachusetts.
The Northern papers have been teeming with re
ports respecting the movements and intentions of this
warlike individual. One while, it was said, that he
could not leave his room lor fear of being butchered
in the streets of Washington; then again, that he had
paraded the avenue, surrounded by armed friends,
ami put Brooks amt Keitt at defiance, ami all South
l Carolina at their backs; then, that he had been gra
' eiously permitted by Keitt to walk abroad; then the
Rev. Mr. Parker told us that Wilson had paraded be
i fore Krill’* lodgings ami was not hurt; then we had
a letter from Wilson hunself, to the effect that he hail
walked pretty much all over Washington, for the two
days after he declined lighting Brooks, sometimes
alone, and sometimes attended by friends. The last
version of the matter, wc liml, as reported below, in
I the N. Y. Courier :
WILSON AND BROOKS.
■ To the Editor* of the Courier d' Enquirer :
I perceive in the V Y. Commercial Advertiser, of last
! evening, the following telegraphic despatch from Boston :
■'Bustos, June H.—.Senator Wilson denies unequivocally
the statement telegraphed Irotn Washington to a X. York
■ paper, that t'olonel lane had called on him from Mi.
Biooks, with an assurance that lie (Brooks) intended to
1 make an assault on him. Mr. Wilson (ays, ‘1 have sought
no controversy and shall seek none, hut I shall go where
| duty requires, uninfluenced bv thieats of any kind."’
I am euatiled to endorse the statement made tiy Mr. Wil
I son. The fact* are, that Mr. Uullinglun, the colleague and
friend ot Senator Wilson, when he borv the tefussl ol Wil
-sin to fight Brook-, expressed a desire to know whethet
j it was the intention of Brook* to assault Wilson in the
' -trect. Alter some little hesitation, (Ion. Lane promised
i that there should tie no attempt to whip Wilson for a
week; mid aubecquontly lie assured him that Mr. Brooks
' d sired him to say that he did not intend to make ant at
tack whatever upon Mr Wilson at any time for what was
i past; and Mr. Butlingloii so reported before he left tile city.
Die liinitatinti ol a week, within which no attack was to
•e made upon Wilson, was a piece ol fun on the pait ol
• ten. Lane and got up a laugh at Buffington's expense,
tor making so strange a la-quest.
It was indeed a strange application, and by its extraor
1 dinary character, no doubt prevented a street tight, in
which, probably, both the principals would have lost their
lives. ' II. T.
Washington, June 4, iN.'nl.
Dismissal of t'rampton.
Tin* Charleston Mercury speaking of the dismissal
of the English official, says :
| “The disclaimer of the English Government, of any ittten
] lion to injure our laws—the denial ol all its instructions
which could justify such conduct upon the purl of its offi
cials—the tiank expression of regrvi.il these law sjhad been
inadvertently \iolated—ami these ndutissious, hacked hv
the officials themselves—ull make a case in which our Go
vernment might have exeicised a wise am' magnanimous
! forliearance. in that, we lake the same view ol the case
a-it is pr'sented with force and clearness by Senator
Toombs in the debate quoted. With him, we arc of the
j opinion that there never was in the question sufficient
cause lor protracted and warm correspondence between
lh.i two countries, and that a high statesmanship would
not have elevated into importance so inconsiderable a mat
ter."
By this it will be seen that others—and those
I hmincrats, arc coming round to the opinion which
we expressed more than six months ago, that there
! was no violation of our neutrality laws by England,
which called for action. We never believed it was
; forbidden for a foreign <i ivernment to let it be known
; here, that person- who chose, might enlist by going
out of our territory, and that the persons might go
| without infringing tile law. Lord Palmerston lot the
i nail on the heal, when he said; “the United States
i- not Russia—it is a free country—its citizens can
go ami come when they please and for what they
i please.” And that fact—their freedom—proved the
absurdity of Mercy's doctrine, that they could not
go to Canada to enlist.
The H hite Motive.
The news from Cincinnati has spread a gloom over
this magnificent Hotel of the Republic. Pierce is
sorrowing, and refuses tube comforted. Old Marcy
is as grunt as a mail bull. But poor Caleb—the man
of all work—bis condition is piteous to behold.—
Old Renton's new book lias just stripped the mer
cenary wretch naked, and exposed him to the ab
horrence of mankind ; and now Old Ruck comes to
strip hint of all his employments—the ill gamed
' fruits of fourteen years of political knavery.
If Rev. is not too full of joy at the rout of the
enemy, will he report daily the condition of these
buttering patriots?
Imposition.
We published a communication some days since ar
raigning the Pension officers for frauds, kr. We dis
avowed knowledge of the facta—but staved that the paper
came from what wo regarded a responsible source. It
flow turns out that the name of the mail tiv whom it pur.
ported to be written was a iorgery—and the real authoi
a person in Georgia, who has been at rested for frauds ii
In the pension office. Ol course the statements ol suet
u character are wholly worthless. .
We are very much gratified that our old Whig friend
Kidder Meade, was selected to nominate Buchanan. I
Old Muck should be elected, that little circumstance can
1 not he forgot or overlooked—it insures Kidder better lull
than he had with (lie Brigadier. We should not be sur
1 prised if it gol him a full misaion. Hone it mav I
| will furniah another proof of the inability of the |)eimi

Mr. KJilor :
You are doubtless aware that I lie Black Republican*
ant making a J«*|M-ralr effort to bring their party into no
tice. at the •-&prime ol every principle ol lionor ami pat
riotitui. Ami since tha asaaull of Hu. ScMMKB by Vs
llano**, thrir *lury knows no bound,’* and they (at least
the fanatic portion of them) are holding indignation lure
lings at different points, aa they say. for the purpose ol
vindicating the freedom of speech. Ilut their object in
rvshty, is nothing more nor leas, than to bring their party
into notice, and thrust themselves, it possible, on the
good t-omw-rr Stive people of the North.
Kor this purpose, they called a meeting at the Eagle
Slrvat Theatre last night. A Iriend formerly Iruiu South
Carolina, and myself, concluded to attend the meeting,
and fael the pulse of this |-cop'e. We went, took our
rests in the back pan of the house, intending to Ire silent
spectators, Hut thc/arrr was too good, and we lost our
gravity more than once during the evening.
The meeting was railed to order in the usual way, hv
appointing a President, Committee on Resolutions, Ac.—
The President then stated the object of the call and rv
qiiewli-d those who were forrmvl in getting the people to
gether, to eoiue forward, and address the meeting. Hut
they could no where be found. In th s emergency, it was
necesaaiy to find amir one else, and the Ho*. J. O. IVtsax
being observed in the house, was called for, and made a
short ranting speech, unworthy the man. Ue flourish* i his
beaver with one baud, and by the lime lie got through, it
was pretty well sym-rrr»f; He sat down amid the applause
—ami strange as it may appear to you—the hisses of the
lieople.
Nett was called a naiarafrr of the fiospel, the Rev. Dr.
Thoinfisou, of the Soft Presbyterian denomination, lie
said tie had a had cold, and could not speak, (providi ntial,
no doubt.) but that his “heart was with them in this mat
ter,” and the A of* man took his seal.
Next called upon was Rev. Mr. Hcacock, of the same
religions denomination. He took the stand with /irryximf
m«/ra in Ins hand. Doubtless, he took these notes into his
"srerrl chamber,” and prayed the liod of the l" *10* to
sanction Ida unholy purpose*.
It was now time (or the Cora mitt-re on Resolution* to re
port, and here is where the fuw commenced. The chair
man of the committee, Mr. Welch, 01 the Buffalo HrptMie,
stepped forward, bowed. Mulled, unfolded the paper*, look
ed over the audience, smiled again very sweetly, and com
menced to read. Hut there was evidently somrfAiny
trrtmp, and the crowd soon discovered what that *o/«c
lAiny was, and hurst into a prolonged fit of laughter.—
The isKsrLitiaA* hyd a “/An-A lun.jur." He however, ral- 1
led, and the ndrtli subsiding, he proeeeded to read the
resolutions. Here one Pat Rya.*, a jolly Irishman, ob
serving that the sposkei's lips were <fry, stepped on the
platform, and offered him a glasa of water. This
“brought down the house.” Quiet being restored again,
the speaker went on with the Resolve*. When he got to
the last part of the second resolve, where It speak- ol
the assault as “brutal, cowardly and mHn/rrusi, some
one desiring to offer an amendment, but an effort was at
once made bv those Abolitionists to put him down, and
thus firrmit the freedom of speech. But it was sun dis
covered he had liiends 111 the house. Another voice wss
henul in another pail of lire house, strong, powerful and
eloquent. It was A. Conkling, K-q , clerk of the I'uiled
States District Court, and son ot the Hon. A. Conkling, and
a gentleman m> much respected lor Ins talents and gentle- I
manly bearing, that the crowd —Km gave way, and the
champion Took the stand and spoke beautifully ami elo
quently, and soon turned the channel of the meeting into
its proper course.
All honor and praise is due Mr. Conkling. Miy laurels

the coming Commencement ol the Va. Military Institute,
would he invested witli great additional interest from the
presenco ol Governor Wise and tbu erection of the bronze
statue ol Washington. It has afforded us very high grit*
ideation to learn that another eminent attraction will be
•uper added lo those before alluded to. Hon. Lawrence
Mi Keitt, ol South Carolina, has consented to address the
Literary Societies ol the Institute, yd will do so upon
llie same day—the llrd of July—on which Gov. Wise dc
livers his address. Our citizens limy well congratulate
r themsrlres on the prospect of so lich an intellectual feast
• This broad Union cannot furnish two more fascinating or
ators that Wise and Kent His bitterest opponents will
at least acknowledge that the first ran talk—and talk lo
wliomt reputation ia already (irmly established for genuine
eloquence of the highest t inea. We chanced the other
day to pick up M'im Murray’s book on the United .States,
, and found tliat Mi Keitt’s name ia prominently mentioned
lit her as that ol the most eloquent speaker whom she
heard on the tloor ol Congress. Nor is this all. He ia a
man ol the right «t inp ot . southern feeling, principle and
pur| o-*o. Hold, h'.iiIc*a amiable, he hi* made tin- Ale

quail la-fore his energetic and scathing denunciations. To

A Convention la to be Ml In th* ell* of Washington,
on Tu- a-lay neat, for the purpose of consulting In rela
tion to the high ptio* of Peruvian tiuauo, ami the beat
course to be pursued bjr the Farmers ami Planters of the«
United States upon the subject. Most of the Agricultural
Societies have ap|H>inle<l delegates Tin Peruvian Minis
ter has alrvailv issued a letter, in which he endeavors to
explain sml jus lib tho eouiaeol Ilia Uovernnieiil. lie
savs that that Cioveniuiei.t sends to the United States for
sale, the quantity that it thinks necessary to meet the de
mand ; and it does the same with other foreign markets,
w illicit increasing the pi ice of the article iu the one more
than iu the other. That it is unable to supply the in
r reasing demand trmu Ureal Britain and the Continent,
where it is living brought into general use, and aella at
Ariii per tun. Tnat as tliu United States do not at present
consume one louith of tho guano exported Irom Peru, it
cannot lie reasonably ripi t ied that the Peruvian Govern
ment should make any rvdat lion ol price in lavor ol
Ameiiran agriculturist*, to the prejudice ol thoss of other
nations, whose rapidly increasing consumption of the ar
ticle. Peru finds it difficult to supply, even at the above
mentioned price. That Peru regards its guano deposits
as a sacred trust ol inapprvei sbla value, to he pirscrved
from spoliation, and tu-lcred ami husbanded with the
greatest care ami vigilance (or the present as well as fu
ture hem-fit ol the nation ; and that, in his opinion, in
stead of promoting the increaSssI consumption there
of, it would henceforth he its true policy to diminish
and rrstiict the same to such an amount yearly as may lie
■ leeinrd sufficient to pay tlis interest on ila national debt
and contribute, with the other productive resource* ol the
Republic, to defray tho current expenses ol the govern
ment.
lie conclude* by stating that the Peruvian government
will persist in adlirring to the system heretofore pursued
and that no advantage can poasildv result from any fur
ther agitation of the subject. Hut the Fanner* and Plan
ters ol the United Slates do not think so, and hence the
proposed Convention. A correspondent of the New Yot k
Evening Post, who has been employed iu loading a ship
with guano at the Chines islands, has communicated to
the editor of that paper some interesting intormaliiHi con
cerning the trade. He has been at the islands three dif
' terenl times, and ucarly six months in all. The last time
he was then* was in the Summer and Fall of tS&A. He i
says that he louud at lime* five hundred sail of vessels
together loading with guano, generally large ships, flue
ship was tjmi ton* burthen. Not less than three hundred
sail of r esse I - are now at the islands, loading for the Uni- |
ted States, Spain, Portugal. France, and English and Uer- |
man port*. Some cargoes are cent to Constantinople, and
swine to Russian ports in the Black Sea. Thi* was lu-l'ore 1
tlis war iu the Crimea. The Russian tiade will now open 1
again, Isith from the (Hack Sea and the Raltic. Freights |
are high. AY. I'S are often paid per ton fioiu Liverpool
and Hampton Road*. Ucnerallv, ten shillings more a ton •
freight is paid to Europe. At the rate at which guano is !
now shipped at the Chincha Idaiuls, it will tie exhausted
in six to eight years—not a ton will be left. Twenty thou- I
sand tons are sometimes removed from the islands in a sin- .
gle day.
The Chincha l-laud* are about one hundred miles north |
from Callao. The longest of the group is two miles in I
length, ami a quarter ol u mile wide, hut contains onlv a
small quantity of guano. The most northerly is the smal
lest, tietiig ntKUlt a mile ill length, hy hall a miic in breadth. I
Unarm on this island is two hundred and filtv teet deep — j
The island contains a Chinese Settlement of Coolies, alioiit I
ami loading the vessel*.
A task is given them each Jay, and if the gang fail to
get out tlie given number ot wagon loads, ol two tons
each a day, their bondage i* continued a longer period, to
make it up; so many month* or day* are added a* wagon
load* are wanting.
The Coolie* are cheated into the belief that they are to
be shipped Irom China to California and the gold diggings
and are further deceived by the oiler ol a free passage —
The knowing Chinese or tlie Mandarin* ship them. The
ship master carries them to the Peruvian enrol and sells the
cargo ol living Chinese for hi* freight money. All llii*
time the Chinamen are kept in iron* ami confined below
in tlie hold of the ship. Tlie Peruvian government pur
i hase tlie cargo ot living Coolies, paying tlie \ ankee or
Rtigliah captain a round sum for hi* care, diligence and
lalmr in stealing Chinamen Irom their lionira In be sent into
tin-i/hono mines ol Peru lor lile, or tor five to seven
years, and to Ire field in Uunlage or peonage to pay tlieir

The guano i* hard and can only be broken up with the
pickaxe. It is then broken and shoveled into tin* wag
on* and rolled from the shutera Into the ves*vl. Xn person
ean go upon or come away from these island* without a

armed soldiers Udongiug to Peiu.
Tlie Peruvian* send all their prisoner* ol Skate into the
guano mines, say about two to three hundred, where
they are let out to work by day, and at night are shut up
in tlieir ocll*,.with only two meals perday. These prisoners
are generally provided with wive* or female companion*,
who have been permitted to go to the blinds, and hire
themselves nut for work and prostitution. They are moat
| iv Indian*, native* ol the country. There " no freali wa
ter on the island*, aud eacli vessel i* compelled by law to
