Vaporing of the Opposition.
Under this caption the Richmond Enquirer of
yesterday nukes itself supremely ridiculous. It ap
pears to be entirely beside itself. Its ideas are hor
ribly contused, and its calculations arc deploiahle. —
For instance, it claims Kentucky for Buchanan, when
no candid or reasonable man anywhere in the United
States dreams ol the happening of any such event.
The simple lact that men will not “hazard a cent”
on an election, is no proof that they do not believe
in the statements and predictions they make. Not
at all. On the contrary, the best and most prudent
men in the world are precisely those in whose judg
ment and conscience bettiug is a mighty impropriety
_, „jn There are others who, having no scruples
about gambling, have not the money to carry out
their notions and sustain their belief The mere cir
cumstance, therefore, that gentlemen will not "ha
aard a cent” on the result of the election, amounts to
nothing like evidence that they do not have full and
complete faith in their calculations.
Despite the miserable “vaporing’’of the Enquirer,
me are of the frank and honest opinion that Bucha
nan stands no chance in the present contest, and that
Mr. Fillmore’s prospects are not only bright and
brightening, but that they indicate his certain tri
\Ve arr not one of those who claim Virginia
for Fillmore; but we do claim enough Sutes, North
and South, to elect him. Whatever may he said
about New York, we have no doubt that it will cast
iU vote for Millard Fillmore. None in the world.—
The pretended re-uuiou of the llards and Stiffs is a
cheat and a humbug These two factions are as lar
apart now as they were twelve months ago. And
nothing on earth can ever make them harmonise ai d
art together effectively. The Empire State of the
North, therefore, is as sure for Fillmore as ff the
election were over and the contest decided in his fs -
vor. No sane man preteuds that New York will give
its vote to Buchanan. If Fillmore fails to carry it,
Fremont will succeed, sure.
In a word, there is not a single Northern Sute
which any friend of Buchanan ran claim for him w ith
any degree of contidence. Not one. II e show*cd, in
our article on Saturday, that the most thorough and
uniform Democratic Stales of the North have aban
doned the Democracy, and given in their adhesion to
Fremont. And il the most overwhelming Democra
tic Sutes refuse to vote for Buchanan, how can any
reasonable man suppose that those Sutes not Demo
cratic, or that those which have heretofore been
Whig or American, will susUin him » The truth is
Buchanan is a dead cock in the pit. His chances ol
election arc desperate beyond description. Nothing
in tlie world can save him. lie can neither be elect
ed bv the people, nor can he succeed if the election
is transferred to the House of ReprcsenUtives.
We believe that if the friends and supporters of
Fillmore will wa?e the contest with that spirit and
energy which becomes them, his triumph is "vot lh
the least a matter of doubt. He can scarcely fail to

will carry New Yoi k, New Jersey, Ma-sachusctt-,
and several other Xurthern States, we have bar ily
the shadow of doubt. His election, therefore, is a
certain, “tixed fact,” if the South will rally to hi
support, and not waste its strength upon Buchanan,
a man who is virtually not in the field.
We make the prediction now that the Democracx
will be utterly overwhelmed, as in Iowa, in all tlu
Northern States in the forthcoming elections. In
Illinois, Richardson will be beaten out of sight, and
Bissel—the Black Republican candidate—will be
made Governor hy a decisive and tremei'*1 ’,,s ,u:,‘
jority. And so, also, in a'1 **• other Northern
States where the /-—• >.esl is merely between the De
mocrs-T and the “Opposition."
We entreat the Enquirer, therefore, to abandon
its senseless, “idle bravado.” The honest and indt
pendent voters of the country, North and South, are
beginning to open their eyes, and to appreciate the
necessity of uniting upon Fillmore, if they would
preserve the institutions and the liberties of the Re
public, To patriots of all parties and all sections
mt make a sincere aud earnest zi|i|n*al to buckle oti !
their armors, anti go forth to the conflict with a tic
termination never to aubttiH or yield; but with »
full and vigorous purpose to place Mii.laho Kill—
gnat—a true anti tested national man—in the Presi
dential chair. Anti then the whole country will he

K litnr nf Ikr Kickin',nH Whig —All intense desire to
eee public opinion in the Atlantic Slates properly regula
ted, and influenced only by truth slid right, has induced
tne to addreaa you at this time. In the midst of a com
munity nf madmen, I feel myself untainted, and will at
tempt as Calm and dispassionate a statement of facts as
will be consistent with truth. It will be difficult for you
or your readers to bcliere that a portion of your own
country—a sovereign State—ouo ol the thirty-one stars
enfolded within the glorious stripes of freedom—should
be for two months over-ruled and down trodden by a civil
and military despotism unsurpassed in the civilized world.

ttle -niili-idimem of that genius of crime which has made
California a hissing and a by word for the nations. Here
was the prompting heart and the uplifted hand which
have already saturated this soil with blood, and which are
now attempting to legalize treason and to christianize
murder. Look -in theae dark masses and you behold tilt

For (As Ktckmond ll'Asy.
Having seen the name of the distinguished gentleman,
whose name appears at the head ol this article, pieaented
to the voter* of the 16th Senatorial District, in the Whig
of lb* 26th Inst., as a suitable person to succeed Mr. Ro.
Saunders in the Senate, we cannot withhold an expression
of approval from one ol such deserved popularity and one
so eminently qualified to fill so important a trust. Our
acquaintance with Col. Crump haa licen long and ol the
most intimate and amicable character, and authorizes us
in saying, ahould he be the standard-bearer of tha Whig
and American patties, he will be elected over his antago
nist (should he have one) by a tremendous majority, tie
is not s-ipercillious, but unassuming iu hla deportment,
yet dignified in hi* bearing, possessing an intellect brilliant
and penetrating ; all ol these rare attainments, to
gether with many noble qualities, must itievitablv ensure
his election. Col. Crump haa always been a sterling
Whig and exceedingly loyal to his party and principles,
hr which he has won an urn-easing fame. He was nerer
known to aweive Irom his party or to he biassed by any
personal considerations in an election, when his political
aantimeuta were to be sacrificed. In the event of the
election of Itols rt Saunders, Ksq., to Congress, and there
should be a convention held lor the purpose ol making a
nomination, and should Col ('rump be the recipient of
that nomination, we leel confident that he will buckle on
his armor and canvass the district thoroughly, and lead th*
Whig and American parties to a glorious victorv.
Kdilort of tkr ll'Aiy?
Oxxtlemex :—We beg leave, through the column* of
your paper, to present the name of Col Edward li. I'rutnp,
ol New Kent county, to the consideration of the people
ol the 16th Senatorial District, as a suitable person to re
present this district in the Senate of Virginia, in tha place
ol Robert Saunders, Esq., should the latter gentleman lx*
elee'ed to Congres*. In presenting Col. Crump we feel
assured that we could not bring forward a gentleman more
distinguished for his devotion to the old Whig and Araer
icin parties, nor more zealous in hi* advocacv ol those
great principles which hare cemented the Whig and
Amarican parties into one holy allianco, to battle against
thoas evils which misrule and waned patriotism has en
gendered, modest yet firm, unostentatious yet effective.—
Col. Crump, although not filling a large place in the pub
lic, from hi* own choice, we must say well deserves, for
ilia industry, talents and undying devotion to principle,
adoption by the party for this important post. W’e be
lieve, for his personal character, he is so endeared to the
people of the county in which he resides, he will carry
every vote without distinction ol party. We cordiallv
recommend Col. Crump to the consideration of the voter*
of the district HAMPTON.

We regret that we hare not lime and space to notice
the grand rally of the American party as we should like,
and as, under other, circumstances, we would do. Before
nine o'clock on Thursday morning, our streets were crow,
ded, though the sky was overcast with clouds and the day
promised to be unfavorable. Aboat 1 is o'clock, under tin
command ol the Chiel Marshal, Jno. D. Imboden, E-q.,
and his ai ls, the procession was formed on Main street.
The Churcbville Band, discoursing stirring music, formed
the head ol the procession. There were several banners,
having patriotic sentiments inscribed upon them, as well
as ths names ol Fillmore and Dotirlson, borne aloft in the
piocecaioo. The procession marched around a portion of
the town reached the grore near the American Hotel,
where preparations had beeu made for the occasion, at
abvut 11 o'clock. It is supposed that there were about
two thousand gentlemen, and about fire hundred ladies in
Jno D Imboden, Esq . moved that the meeting lie or
ganized by the eleclion of Hou. A. II. H. Stuart, a- Pm

McCue, Dr. J. Hanger, J. Smith and J. McCoy, a* Fire
Prrtidrxtt, which nominations were unanimously adopted
by the meeting.
Mr. Stuart then arose and addressed the meeting sub
stantially ns follows:
I thank yon for the honor you have done me by calling
on me to preside over the deliberation* of tills large and
intelligent assembly. I rejoice to witness such an out
pouring of the patriotic citizens of Augusta. It Augms
well for the peace and prosperity of the country. It piove
tliat the people are alive to the importance of the crisi
in our public affairs. It shows that they appreciate tin
sentiment that "tin- price of liberty is eternal vigilance."
It proves that they understand the value ol the priceless
isliwituieii that thojr have derived from their fathers, ami
that they are determined to stand by the Constitution anil
the I'nion. It proves that they have adopted as their
motto tin- patriotic sentiment uf the great defender of the
Constitution, “Liberty and Union, now and lorevei, om
and inseparable." It prove* that the people of Augusts
are the worthy descendants of that heioic band of moun
taineers to whom Washington looked in the darkest lioun
of the revolution as the men who would rally round him
hi the last sttugged for liberty, and raise up their bleeding
country from the dust and set her free.
We have, fellow-citizens, fallen on evil times. Discord
prevail* throughout e** borders. The spirit of sectionsi
uni, against -nrch the father of his country affectionately
and r—phetieally wanted us, has spread its baneful influ
ences over the country, and the most hopeful are now con
-trained to admit that our Cnion and all the countless
blessings which flow from it are in danger.

see senators co-operating in a different work Ilian eia-pe
rating the irritated feelings of the Noitli and South. The

Tins result had been predicted by him at the time, but
he Imped these evils might be brought to a termination
without any leartul disaster to the Cnion. He hoped ami

which -vis dangerous to liberty and to the constitution.—
lie would not disturb a pagan or an idolater in the exer

opportant ty of ascertaining the fact In qneslton. Mc.ce 1619, when

■spuris of Tobscoo the pa«t year, or season Just closed, were 1,491
ihds. less titan during the preceding year. We had expected a
rider disparity than this, but the heavy shipments in August, being
•early equal to half the entire shipments for tlie preceding eleven
nnnths, brought tlie 'M column up to a tolerable contrast with the
WPvgate of *55. In Flour there luss been a marked Increase of the
