The Resaos Why Abolitiwii.t. Support Buckiuan.
It is notorious that the nomination of Buchanan
imparted great joy to many of the Northern Aboli
tionists. The reason mar be discovered in the fol
lowing extract from the communication of a New
Hampshire correspondent of the Boston Pi>«f--the
Pott being a realous supporter of Buchanan, and its
reputed soundness on the slavery question being s
constant theme of laudation with its Southern allies.
The New Hampshire Democratic correspondent of
the Pott, writing from Manchester, says:
"Another gentleman iu this city, Jacob B. More, a for
mer oh Jidcmiet, an eminent artiM, whose pen and pencil
•re alike noted loi pungency and beauty—whose reputa
tion as a fine painter anil deep thinker is not confined to
the nairow limits ol this State—has Come to the wise con
elusion that the onlv political party whose pnnciples, il
carried out, mil best nWrs the inleretlt of the eoloretl
mtin, is the Demoeratie. These, and others we might
name, are with us iu this Presidential mutest , and, hr the
deep disquietude of the opposition, will carry with them
over to Buchanan a large circle of friends who have here
toforc been against us."
There we have it, that the reason why the person
named and others of the same stripe intend to sup
port Buchanan ia that, in their opinion, “the only
political party whose principles if carried out, will
best subserve the interests of the colored man, is the
Democratic !” In other words, they mean to sustain
the election of Buchanan upon the avowed ground
that his administration of the government would
tend more surely to the ultimate abolition of slave
ry than that of either of the other candidates now
before the people. In short, these New Hsuipshire
adherenta of Buchanan consider their uotninec infi
nitely more of an Abolitionist than even Fremont;
and they have, consequently, “cotne to the wise con
clusion" to do whatever lies in their power to ensure
his success.
We are by no means surprised that such an argil
inent should he employed by Northern Free-sollers
in support ol tiucnanan s election, n is a «on
known and admitted fact that the “piddling" Penn
sylvania Filibuster was selected by the Cincinnati
Convention of office-holders and office-hunters in ol
der to conciliate the anti-Nebraska, Abolition senti
ment of the North, and that his nomination a as op
posed and protested against by an overwhelming
majority of the Southern delegates upon that identi
cal ground. But the Abolition element in the Con
vention, having a preponderating induence. achieved
a complete triumph ; an 1 the result is before us in
the presentation of the name of James Buchanan.—
Such being the circumstances under which his noun
nation was effected, and such the views which actu
eted th is* in favor of it, it is not at all to be won
dered at that his election should now be urged at
tne North for the reason assigned by his Free-soil
supporters, to wit: that.his administration would
"best subvert* the interestt of the colored man.”'
An-1 herein we iind an ample solution of the con
centration upon Buchanan of Van Buren and Benton
and other noted Fruc-soii vultures, lit re, too, is the
explanation of (hr sudden change of front on the part
of the Now York Softs. They all knoie their man.
They have studied his record—they have perusod
his anti-slavery speeches—they know his Abolition
proclivities. Van Buren and his disciples are too sly
and cunning—too shrewd and experienced tacticians
—to risk tiieir cherished schemes of aggression up
on the rights of the South by sustaining, under ex
isting circumstances, the regularly nominated candi
date of the Black Republican party. They see that
they can compass their object better, with less sus
picion and more effectively, by according their sup
port to a Free-soiler in disguise ; and hence they vin
dicate tlieir wariness ami sagacity by going it with
a rush for Buchanan. It is in the highest degree
unreasonable to suppose, as we have often before
contended, that Van Buren and his clique, when we
consider their antecedents and avowed sentiments in
regard to the institution of alavery, should give in
tlieir adhesion to Buchanan, without a full and ex
plicit understanding that their views should in a great
measure control the policy of his administration.—
No one believes that Martin and John Van Buren are
any less Free-soilers now than they were last year or
the year before. All know that their avowed aim
has been, and still is, to make the Democratic party
the "great Abolition party of the country.” To cir
cumscribe, restrict, hem in slavery by surrounding
it with a "cordon of free States," and thus to effect
its ultimate abolition where it already exists. Tins
has been their grand object, pursued with patience,
perseverance and /.eal for many long years. Is it
fair to presume that tlieir sujiport of Buchanan im
plies an abandonment of tlieir scheme? On the con
trary, is it not rational and just to infer that tlu-v
consider the election of Buchanan the most expedi
tious, available and certain means of accomplishing
their ends, and gratifying the one great desire of
their hearts? What could they anticipate from a
surrender of their Free-soil notions and purposes
now? Under the ban of all parties at the South,
and likely to remain there, what motive have thcv
to turn a somerset and become the champions of the
South, at this late day? Have they any whatever?
The supposition that they have, is too preposterous
and absurd to impose upon any man's credulity. It
is reduced to an absolute certainty, therefore, that
they are actuated in their support of Buchanan by
precisely the same views and considerations which
have always, heretofore, controller! their political
conduct. They believe the policy of his administra
tion would “best subserve the interests of the color
ed man," and would more effectually titan anything
else tend to the abolition of slavery and the dee true
tion of the South. That is their sole reason_there
can be no other—for their piescnl position upon the
political chessboard With them “the study of re
venge" ia aweet , and unless the South wishes to be
bound band and foot, and delivered over to the ten
der mercies of unadulterated Abolitionism, it had
better keep a vigilant and suspicious eye upon ti e
favorite candidate of the Van Burens in the prvi-ei.t
grave and momentous contest.
Having given our readers a bird’s eye view of the
reasons assigned by Northern Free-aoilvrs for then
support of Buchanan, we invoke them to content
plate seriously the probable effect of Buchanan's «n.
teas upon the institution of slavery and the lestini. .

A Fillmore Organ Dead.
The Albany Allot and dryiu give* the following obltu
ary notice oi a lair Fillmore paper:
"The Albany State Remitter ha* been discontinued bj
It* publishers. It was discontinued sums time sgo by iu
readers."
We clip the foregoing unmitigated falsehood from tlu
Prantylraniao—the Buchanan organ in Philadelphia.—
The Albany Stole ffiyutir, instead of having liecn a fill
more ps|>rr, was one of the most drtertnined and unscru
pulous opponent Mr. Fillmore hsd. It was originally s
Ueorge Lsw psper ; and war afterwards converted into ■
Fremont organ. Instead of being dead, also, it has been
removed to the eitv of New York, and, under its original
name, atill supports the election ol Fretuonl, and abuses
Mr. Fillmore without stint.
Ills hardly to be ereltled that the /’nsiy/iwsi** did
not know the political complexion of the Albany Stats
Kegistur. Iu calling it a Fillmore organ, tbarelore, and
representing it as dead, was only a “acurvy" trick to im
pose upon its readers the Ivlirl that Mr. Fillmore's friend*
weir falling off from him, and his prospect* consequently
declining. Wu have noticed numerous examples ol simi
lar rascality on the |iart of th* Buchanan pres*. Our res
dera can see the desperate aud disgraceful means thus re
sorted to to injure Mr. Fillmore, and discourage his sup
porters. But this small game, we trust, is destined to be
completely defeated.
Penn')Kama Not Safe.
Despite the furious boastings of the Democracy as to the
certainty of carrying Pennsylvania for Buchanan, they are
evidently alarmed. The /Vwruy/ewm.m—the Buchanan
organ in Philadelphia—contains a piteous and whining
appeal to its friends to arouse themselves from their lethsr
gr, or the Key«tone Stale will certainly be lost. It tell*
them plainly that “the crisis permit* no laggard to lay
under thr fence, or sit upon it—that it demands unceas
ing effort upon the part of every individual member " ol
the party. It thru a«k< mournfully and dcspomlingly—
“Shall we have the mollification and disgrace of being
defeated in our o«u strong-hold, the banner State of the
unterrified ?"
Such appe d* betray but little confidence in the ability
of the Uuchauanite* to carry Pennsylvania. Nor will they
carry it. il we can place any reliance upon the sign* of
the time*. And if not Pennsylvania, wbat Northern State
will they get ’ Not a single one. And thus it will be
Seen that Old Buck's chances arc utterly hopeless. N’o

Fillmore in Georgia.
The Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel publishes a long,
able, interesting, and patriotic letter Irom Col. Fouchc,
defining his position in the coining election. Col. F it
an old and well-knoieu Democrat of that State ; but he
can't go Squatter Sovereign!* and Wilrnot Provisoism in
the person of Buchanan. We hare ODly room for the fol
lowing extract:
“I have drlilierated carefully as to my duty to mv prin
ciples and the country. I shall support Mr Fillmore, not
because I concur with him in all his political views, but
hecaure / ■/•* concur icith hint upon certain important

manly ami statesmanlike attitude than any other candid

and administered a bold rebuke to Black Republicanism,
which is more than the Cincinnati Convention dared to
do. He lias said to those who are seeking tbe political
domination of the North over thr South.he docs not want
their vote*. I Can trust a man who acts and speaks thus.
He will act upon his platform. The other platform—the
Cincinnati platform—has but one object ; to yet roten—
all Kurt* ol votes everywhere. North and South. It means
votes. It means nothing else.
“I should be most happy to co-operate with many very
worthy gentlemen, who act with the "American Demo
cratir party" but it is not sufficiently Americanized yet.
Besides, being a State Rights man, a free trade man. and
opposed to internal irnprovcmrnts by the Government, I
cannot support a party which, in tho face of its own re
cent acts in Congress, gives away millions of land for in
temal improvement purposes, declared at Cincinnati op
position to such works by the government, one ol its lead
ing principles, and then joined at Washington in passing,
by a two thirds Tote, a whole batch of bills appropriating
vast sums of money for internal improvements, over the
vetoes of their own party President.”
The H ay to Get Votes.
The following paragraph from the Charleston Xrtn la
full of truth. It is from a Washington communication to
that journal. It shows how the Democracy act in order
t« get votes lor their candidate in all sections and from
every quarter. The method adopted by them U curious
and instructive. Let the people examine it thoroughly,
and their admiration of Democratic ingenuity and on
scrupulousness will bo greatly increased. The writer
says :
“It does not seem to me that you altogether appreciate
the feeling* of the Democratic party at Washington, or
you would not blaiue so much their proceedings in Con

Inch*nan and Iha Opposition.
Under thb caption, tbc Miytrirrr ol yesterday dstivers
iterll ol the following sound and beautiful reasoning,
• Inch it might apply with greet profit in Its owu ease, aa
regards Mr. Fillmore :
“If, as we are constantly told here at tba South 'Mr.
Buchanan is not in the race at all,' there b DO need to
shed gallons of Ink and to consume reams of paper to
render him unpopular with the people of the country.—
A wise Iteneral will not waste hi* ammunition and bar
ras* and weary hia troop* by attacking skirmisher*, when
the body of the enemy in liattle array Is advancing full
upon hi* front; so, neither would political general* weary
tliriMelrr* in attacks upon Buchanan, il they did not
leel ami know that be aluue is likely to overthrow and
dalesl them. Depend upon it, however editor* may af
fect to dispute Buchanan as an oppoueit, they quake and
liviuble at bis prutpec-ls, and, hence their laborious per
severance in attacking lit* opinion*."
Just substitute Fillmore's uauie in the place ol Buch
anan's in the above paragraph, and the A'nyHirrr's rea
soning is turned agaiual itaell with unreaialible effect —
The Democratic press here at the South are coulinually
representing that Mr. Fillmore “is not in the race at ail"—
that he«ill not receive a single electoral vote in auy
State in the Union. It that be to, is there any “need"
for ill* Any Hirer and other Democratic |>ap«rs “to abed
gallon* ol iuk and to consume reams ol paper to reuder
him uupopular with the people of the country ?* Is that
the policy of a “wise general ’” We leave the Any Hirer
to answer. We say to our readers in conclusion—“De
pend upon it, however editor* may affect to despise Fill
more a* an opponent, (Ary yMufr UH<f trrnMr at kit prat

Fillmore, a venerable patriot of more than four ecore
years.
It inay lie of inteiest la your many rcadets toaknow of
the welfare of that venerable man. whose noble son lisa
filled so many high places, and who is now the nation's
idol.
I have hern (or a long time acquainted with old Mr
Fillmore, and I can assure you ha is one of the salt of ttie
earth, I paid him a visit recently of whirh I will attempt
to give you a brief description. I quickly observed the
advance which ege is making upon him—the marks which
time leaves in its unwearying flight But he shook my
hand with all the fervor of former years, and Ills noble
countenance lighted up with a smile which time ran nsv.
er efface from my memory —like that with whieh he Ins
often greeted me In tny youthful days.
The old man ia to g o I possession of all his faculties ex
cept sight. I wondered »t the energy lie displayed at
his st.ge of life. In my eotiversrtiou with him, It was !Mti|.
isl that | should tefer to the position of public affairs sod
the probability tlf Ids sou's re-rlur ti m la tbe Presidency.
“I ia not so proud of Millard hr-esns- he was Piesi
dent, said tbe venevabl* man, “ but I know he tried to do
bis duty, end I know he was honest."
I ventured to express a hope that for the sake of the
counter his son might sgain occupy that position.
fie replied, "I do not know what may happen. As for
myself, I prefer to have Millard near me where I ran sr
him. I do not desire that he should be Prcsideol. We
think that he made a good President before, and ho came
out unscathed. You know Mr. Clay and Wcheter are
gone now—here he stopped and placed his hand over his
eyes, Pi pay a silent reverence to the memoir of tho-e
good sod great men who were the ronAdnitial advisee* of
his son when President I do not know what may be lor
the best, I sin willing if it is for the best. It seems to me
that what we need la honest men to All high places f,«.(
the men who are elevated to those high positions lie hnu
eat and the country will la* safe I confess that | ,m
alarmed at the condition things are now In, ton I know
that if tbe great men ate honeel all will be right"

The Frankfort (Kentucky) Commonwealth, in republish
mg thto letter says :
Now thia letter to most significant ; not merely oo ac
count of its elate ill cats, but on account of the peculiar po
aition the writer ha* heretofore held io the present contest.
Oru. Coomb*, aa ererybody knows, to an old line Whig.
When he lett Kentucky a few week* ago, he wan, (aa wo
are informed,) under Ilia impression that Mr. Buchanan's
chance lor an election was better than Mr. Fillmore’s;
and while he preferred Mr. Fillmore, he wa* considering
whether he ought not lo go for Buchanan a* the surett
way ol detesting Freuient. With these views and thia
p repo **es-ion upon hia mind, he goes to New York ; and
there be i* aoou convinced upon "sere rriiafdt in/urma
lion, that the contest in the greet empire State', which
casta thirty-five electoral vote*, it not between Buchanan
and Aremonl, but hrtrrrn b\ It mart and bWmont; that
'■ Buchanan hat no chance" in that Sute; and that even
the Democrats are giving him up and dividing themaelve*
between the other candidate*—the Hard*, or National
Democrats, going over to Fillmore, and the Solta, or Free
soil Democrats, for Fremont.
A R«M«miT»ii—A young nobleman of the environ*
of Moscow fell desperately in love with a young gipsy,
lie wanted to marry her despite the representations of his
lather, who managed to scud hi* son from home for some
lime, and during hia absence he took po**e**ion ol the
young girl, and married her to hia coachman, to whom
he gave his freedom and some money. Alter tbe wed
ding night passed away, the ran away, gained the countrv,
• ml disappeared from all eve* except those of her lover,
who pretended to have forgotten her, and entered the
guard*. A or five year* she remained concealed in a hut,
and nobody knew that her lover visited her every night;
lie even married to avert nuanieiou. Itm at U*t hi* Uli.
imate wile, tonocntvU b? the myti erioua life Ie4 hy
her hatband, contrived to dt*cover the tncrrt, and then
went to the emperor; the threw hereclf at hit leet, a id
craved vengeance on the perfidioua hutband.
Th«* }>oor gipsy girl w*« aeized and confined in a liospi
t»l, and her three children disappeared, and »he never
heard one word ot them again. For lour ycais she suf
fered anguish of every kind, and every sort of humiliation
without a complaint, giving an example of the most pa
tient and gentle resignation in the house where she w»s
confined. The lover was immediately sent off to the ar
my of the Caucasus, where he is still. No correspondence
could take place between the lovers duriug the whole time
of their seperation. Nevettheleas, a few daye ago an offi
ce reached here (fit. Petersburg) from tbe army, and
lound means of speaking to the young prisoner, and in
the course of the conversation ha let fall that aha was the
only ohetacle to his return.
Her resolution a as at once taken. She found means to
escape from the hospital. She went to the house ol the
legitimate wile of the exiled lover, praved her to pardon
•ter for depriving bcrol a husband she could not but love ;
rince she, unhappy as she had been, could not forget him,
and she quitted the house. She then went to the river
and leaped into one ol the holes made in the ice, and dis
appeared forever uuuer Hie ice. 1 have heard what site
said to her lover’s wife ; she was admirable for her sim
plicity and fervor. She was so beautiful that, when
Strangers vieired the hospital, she was locked up out of
the way. 1 have heard „ great many other details of this
store which are unspeakably touching, but which 1 can
not give you here.
A Ooon Dan rata Mr a.—Madame Augustine R_, a
pretty 6/ornfe, of from 20 to 25 years of age. embarked
lately from Calais to Dover. Uer'invalid appearance ci
eited the intercut of the passengers, who felt great anxie
ty lest sea-sickness should briug on a crisis which evident
ly could not long be deferred. She crossed the Straits,
however, safely, and upon lauding was placed in an arm
chair, and salts were held to her nose, while an occasional
ginan went to the hear*, of her travelling companions. On
the whaif a custom-house officer observed the dUemhar
cation, and seemed to feel a warm interest in the pretty
french woman, lie approached and offered his assis
tance, informing her that he had some knowledge of me
dicine; and, though the lady assured him that she felt
much better, and begged to be carried immediately to a
hotel, he protested that it could not be done without dan
ger, and hy his philanthropic authority she was taken to
an apartment ol the custom-house, and a midwife sent
for. As ilia officer had foreseen, after begging to be re
leased for n quarter of an hour, she was safely delivered
of 2 pelerines, 15 scarfs, 17 pieces of Uce, 12 pairs of silk
«lockings, 38 pieces of cotton, « reticules and 48 Lyons
handkerchiefs. 3
A California piper tells the following of Lieut. Derby,
••John Pho-nix," the humorist :
“One evening at the theatre, Pho-nix oiwerve.J a atari
sitting three seits in front wnoin he thought he knew ; lie
requested the person sitting next to him-to punch Hie
other individual with his cane.’ The |>olite stranger did
so, and the disturbed person turning his head a little, he
discovered his mistake—that he was not the person he
took him for. Fixing his attention steadfastly on the plav
and affecting unconsciousness of the whole sffair, he left
the man with a cane to settle with the other for the distur
bance, who being wholly without an excuse, there was, of
course, a ludicrous ami embarrassing scene—during a||
