Tbe Mythical Here of Modern Times I
Homer is not tho only greet character whose birth
place promise* to be tbe bone of contention among
the disputatious race of man. Col. John Chatlc
Framont, U»e candidate of the Black Republicans,
lias an origin eovolopod in the sauio grand glo.’Ui,
and ho bids fair to attain an equal renown by tlic
mythical halo which aurrounda his cradle. lu hie
case, however, there is a slight difference from that
of limner. With the blind old man of Scio’a ruckv
Isle, tho contest was among localities for the hon r
ol his nativity; here it is a tlorce struggle among
Cities and kingdoms to rid themselves of the glory
of his birth.
On this subject, we Hud the following paragraph
in the Washington Organ :
“Wiikkk Waa FaxuoxT Boas*—A Vermont corres
pondent of the >ew York Express state* that John C.
Fremont •*• boru in Lower Canada. If to, he i*, ol
ooursc, ineligible to tbe Presidency.
“Fremonta biographers do not agree as to his birth
place. By one it is stated to be Savannah, by another
Charleston, by another Virginia. One ol these writer*
Informs u< that Fremont’s lather led a wandering hi
among the aborigine* ol the South. But the Vermont
correspondent ol tbe Express state* that bis wandering*
were in the French aetlloiuent* of Lower Canada. Tin*
is probable, as the elder Fremont w«* a Frenchman and *
fiddler, and more likely to find support among Frenchmen
than among the Creeks or Cherokee*.
“This doubt as to the birth place ol Fremont must se
riousle impair his strength. If he cannot prove that he
was horn i;> the United States, thousands and hundred* ol
thousand* will refuse to rote tor him, who might other
wise have neen Inclined to do so.
“It is worthy of remark that John C. Fremont is the
flrd candkiat* for the Presidency concerning whose origin
and religious faith the least doubt existed He was nomi
nated apparently in pursuance of the old lloman maxim:
otnne !’]«■,him, j*ro m*riftVo— “all that is obscure is re
garded as wonderful.”
A communication, in another column, from an old
rcsiiont of Kichmori*! would go lo snow lliftl wuai
ever doubt may exist with respect to the place where
he lirst saw the light, there is not any as to the Unis
conception is. And yet, upon a close scrutiny of
the communication, there is a link wanting in the
chain ot proof to connect our hero with the homun
culus with which Col. Pryor's wife fled from Rich
mond. It is a tradition among the old citixens of
Richmond—and one of them told us the other dav,
that it was a fact, which he believed could be estab
lished in a court of law—that the child with which
Mrs. Pryor was enciente when she fled from Rich
mond, was born in the kingdom of France. But
then again, the prool is wanting to show that that
child is identical with the Black Republican candi
date. If it be, one thing is certain, he is going un
der a misnomer. According to the laws of every
Christian land, his name is not Fremont, but Pryor.
In this view of the matter, another, ami that a se
rious question, might arise, in the event of Bun k
Republican success. The Constitution tequires as
an incident to eligibility lo the Presidency, that the
party shall be a notice of this country. None of
foreign birth can till that exalted post. Now, it
Col. Fremont was not the son of Mrs. Pryor—or if
he was, ami bis parents, one a foreigner and the oth
er a native, had renounced allegiance to this country,
and went abroad with the intent of makbig a foreign
country their abode—he is not a native in the sense
of the Constitution, and consequently not eligible to
the Presidency. The onus of prool devolves on the
party claiming the benefits of the Constitution.
The biographers of Col. Fromont should have sin
veVsd the ground more closely before they challeng
ed the criticism of mankind, and exposed their hero
to irreparable damage, by statements which would
not stand the test.
Van BnreD's Interpretation of Buchanan.

Wheat Crop in the I'nited Male*.
The Cincinnati Prer* Current has put forth an
estimate of the wheat crop, for this Tear, in the
Cnited States, and puts down the sum total at 142,
H31!,000 bushels. We do not publish it l>ecau*e wedo
not consider it worth one ifirer. It is mere guess work
from beginning to end. The fact in, there are no
statistics by which any man cat do more than con
jecture. Last year, sundry New York pa|>ers gave
estimates, which they declared were based upon re
liable data None rated the crop at less than ltlfl
millions—several went as high as 200 millions. Tho
N. Y. Courier, on • luthentie information, put it at
175 millions, and expressed the opinion that the
country could export 100 millions. The article
served its purpose—it played into the hands of for
eign dedlers, and helped to cheat tho people of this
country out of sundry millions of dollars. So far
from our exporting a 100 millions, the exports, up
to this time, with war prices to stimulate, have tiot
reached 30 millions.
This year, we do not know what tho crop is; we
believe far below what it was last year. Certainly

CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT
OK THE VIRGINIA WHIG CONVENTION AND
Mil t'tl I \iflirt'
RtciIXOXtv, July gad, 1*5,i.
Pear riira-ln pursuance of the instructions of the late
1 Whig Convention assembled in this city, 1 have the honor
to transmit to you a copy of the Preamble and Resolutions
adopted by that body.
You »ill perceive, sir, from these proceedings that,
moved by the spectacle of the public danger, they cairn
together even more in the chiracter of gool citizens than
of Whigs, to take counsel together a- to how, at such a
moment, they could most effectually servo their country.
Deploring, it is true, the temporary, and. as they hope,
transitory, depression of the party whose principles they
deem the wisest anil safest to govern the administrative
policy of tlie Government, and desirous to restore it to
its former efficiency, yet their more immediate object ha*
been to consult with one another as to whom it is their
duty, under existing circum lances, to support for the
Presidency—who, in their judgment, would most virtu
on-lv, wisely ami intrepidly exeit the great powers ot that
office in dele ce of the Con-titutlou and of the Union at a
period of much danger to both.
You(will see, therefore, sir, that, subordinating at such
a time the consideration of ordinary topics ol party diffe
rence, they have confined their attention mainly to the
present evils and the threatened calamities ol the coun
try ; to tlie pointing nut truly, as they believe, the sources
out of which they have sprung; and indicating the re
medies which they require. They find the principal
sources ol these evils, as they believe, in the unwise and
unpatriotic, because uncalled-for, agitation ol settled ques
tion*, by tlie party now in power, in d.sregard of their a •
Icrnn pledges and for mere patty ends; and in its having
so administered tlie government, as to foment internal di
orders when they had ceased, nnd to embroil our foreign
relations which they found unembarrassed : and they -ee.
is they conceive, grounds for apprehending future calami
os to the country from the retention in power of the
•ame party ; and yet heavier ones hum the success of an
other mere sectional paity, who proclaim in advanee Un
intended disregard ol the provisions alike, and spirit, ol
tin- Constitution, a- of the plainest requirement- ot equal
justice—a course- lor which this latter party found the op

Mtttrt. Pd,tort —The following extracts from a privat.
letter will grew your readers some aceouut of the prognw
of the canvass in New York. Tho friend, of Mr. Fllln.on
will be pleased to know that their Northern brethren an
making a gallant fight against tho Republicans' The wri
ter is a young and promising lawyer ol Rochester, and at
ardent frieud ol the I’nion—a conservative in the fullesi
sense. Your* truly, ^
, . Roonurraa, N. Y., Aug. «, |8ft«.
It give* tne great pleasure to lean, that you hare entcrev
the canvass for our Fillmore.-and I trust that the Indepen
dent electors of the Old Dominion will come up manluUj
to the support ol the only true trpsofan American State*
man uow known to the people. Fillmore is rapidly gain
mg friend* in this State, aud I truly believe we can carry
the electoral rote for him.
Ithinl- the FrpubHcan party is the only formidable op
ponent that we mutt encounter in thit Slate 1 hare no
confidence in the union of the two factions of the Demo
cratic parly, which was effected at Syracuse a few dan
ago. The resolutions upon which the f.vclirm* united are
well enough; but the nomination of Judge Parker, a lead
ing Soft, for (Jorrmor, it gut te un tall t factory to the
Hardt. Should any difficulty grow out of thit State nonu
nation, we art ture to get the Hard .ate retire, while the
i'ertr will be dm Jr,l between Jiuchanan and Fremont.
The unwise and dangerous policy of the present admin
i'tration—the outrages in Kansas, and Brook*’ assault up
on Sumner, constitute the wh. le stock in trails of the Ur
publican party. The wound* of Kansas will probably be
healed at the present * sr-ion of Pongee**, but Sunnier’*
are »ur<- to be kept fresh and bleeding till after the elec
Brook* and Kelt a-e no more fair representative* ol the
spirit and sentiment ol the South, than Sumner and Hur
lingvue arc of the North. All ol them, by their act* and
wir'd*, belie the puldio sentiment of their respr-ctire State*.
That there ha* been much wrong done in Kansas. there
ean he no doubt; but for this the admiui*tr*tion is to In*
tdarned. I only regret that the President did not send
(ton Scott to that Territory with sn adequate force. He
would hare dealt exact and impartial justice, and by hi*
firm and conciliatory course would hare quieted the dan
gerous dietorlvancee in that quarter.
Mr Buchauaii is pledged, by the platform adopted at
I'iiii'innaii, to carry out the policy of the Pierce adminis
tration, which policy ha* been so fearfully detrimental to
the best interests of the country, that no truly patriotic
man can gire him hi* support. Tho chief reliance of Mr.
II. at the North i* upon the influence of those gentlemen
who hold fat office* under (ten. Pierce.
Fremont i* put forward as the exponent of the princi
ple* ol a band of fanatics, who for thirty years hare been
disclaiming against the institution of slavery. A claw of
men who eviuce by their acts, a strong determination that
the country shall reeelre no benefit from any measures of
their own, aud an equally strong determination to prerent
others from combatting in so laudable an enterprise. Yon
cannot imagine, my friend, how much I hale this Republi
can party. A* the Psalmist say* of the enemies of the
l-ord, hate them with perfect hatred.” But there is
conservative and patriotic principle enough at the North
to smother th* ebullitions of a livnaied fanaticism ami
crush out the spuit of base sectionalism which ha*
Uvn running rampant orcr the entire North during the
last month. It cannot last, and with Mr Fillmore to lead
at, it it now the doable mittion of the American party to

FILLMORE'S PROSPECTS—NORTBERX CONSKRVa.
We are receiving the most cheering accounts from the
North and West of the rapid progress of conservatism in
those sections of the country. A Southern gentleman, so
journing during the summer at the North, and who has
taken great pains to ascertain the true position of parti- s
there, with a view to present the truth to his Southern breth
ren, ha* addressed a letter U> one of bis friends in this city.
from New York, and from which we are authorised to make
the following extracts, showing the result of his observa
tion and inquiries:
After giving his reasons for believing the opinions he
entertains to be cot reel, he says :
“I therefore have the vanity to think myself well posted
a*ot the prospects. I doubt whether Killmore will carry any
of the hotter, State* except Connecticut—there are, nev
erttide*.-, great changes going on in his favor in Massschu
setts and Rhode Ida td. .Vnr York tcill go for hlllmore,
and to trill .Vrv J'rtry Pennsylvania is doubtful—etch
claim it (the Fillmore and Freemont men.) Ohio look*
belter than it did two months since.’’ ••••••
"A man who is said to be the best posted on that Stale
(Ohio) says it will go for Fillmore by 10,000 majority.”
The omitted portions in the above letter, indicated thus
* * * refer to a distinguished gentleman of that State,
whom we do not feel authorized to refer to by name. Ilis
position ami ptupo-e- will doubtlea* soon be made known
by his own potential voice—till then we deem it itnproprr
to say w hat position he will assume. The writer then pro
"The clunge« for Fillmore in this State (New York) are
astonishing. 1 have been present when at least One bun
dl'd vote* have been taken in this State, on steamboats,
railroads, and chance gathering*, auiong-t all classes, and
1 have yet to Set the first place wln-re Fillmore did not g*-t
tile largest vote, ami very often be get more votes than
t> oh Fremont and Buchanan.”
“A vote i- tskei- i iio-t every day on the llu !-o River
Rail-cad You would he perfectly astonished to see ho*
rapid the changes ar< in Fillmore's favor.”
"A K Mu kisn informs me that the elections in that
.-tale mi the tih m-tet. afford no criterion to judge of the
result in November next.”
The writer of the above letter has spent several weeks
'•’»7' Hit’g in the Koilh ami Wert, lor the purpose of ascer
taining and making known the true condition of things at
tli« North, and wo have copied his letter literally, in or
der to give hi* opinions in Am men words. The letter i»
in the hand- ot a gtsitleiii.ni in this city, to whom it was
I'l-ln s-.-d, and who w ill exhibit it to such as may desire
to see it. with any j.rojtrr purpose.
It will lie observed that the writer of that letter "doubt,"
whether Massachusetts or Rhode Island will rote for Kill -
more, though he says -‘great changes are going on in those
States in favor of fillinore.” Oar own correspondent* in
Massachusetts assure u* that Fillmore trill carry Massachu
setts. They have no hope of Vermont, New Hampshire,
or of M line, all of which w,ll cast their votes for Fremont.
Rhode Island is debatable ground. Connecticut inav be
fsiriy claimed for Fillmore. New York and New Jersey
are set down as «i/i lor Fillmore. Ohio will in all ntoh.
ability go for Fillmore. Indiana and Illinois may possibly
so far change as to vole for Fillmore. At this tiin,
limy arc for Fremont.
Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan, unless great changes
shall he wrought between Ibis time and November, will
probably go lor Fremont. These are our frank and can
did opinions of the North and West. We may lie asked
what stolen we assign u» Buchanan » Not ft tingle Nor
thern Stair. lie will be beaten as badly in tbe whole
Northwest, as he has just been beaten in Iowa, and tor the
very same reason, to wit: that he represents that parts
